3:02 pm
it is a disaster relief effort. they are trying to find survivors. trying to take away bodies. because many bodies are just lying by the side of the road. because they haven't had the manpower to now to move them more, just because of the sheer scale of this disaster. this is day three after the storm and have you health concerns coming up. you have health concerns of decomposing bodies of animals, that are trapped under the rubble, of stagnant water that's in different areas. and also of course, people don't have shelter. this is coming up to the rainy season. it is november in the philippines. and of course, there will be more heavy rain. there will be more heavy wind. it is very important to try and get the necessities, bare necessities for these people. any further fuel, i don't think they have started thinking about yet. >> one of the hardest hit air yes, sir of the philippines. we will continue to check back
3:03 pm
with you. thanks. >> shredding the hotel they thought was going to shelter them in the storm, but far from it. >> winds so powerful they stripped door frames out of the wall throughout the world people are seeing images of devastation in the philippines. and for many philippinos living in the u.s., the pictures are too much to bear since they can't reach their loved ones. >> red 18 go! >> good job right there. >> for more than three decades now, don horton's life has been mostly football. >> vision one, vision two, three, all very positive experiences. >> don became one of the thousands diagnosed every year with parkinson's disease. perhaps the worst day came in 2009. that's when don found himself unable to button his own shirt.
3:04 pm
russell wilson, now quarterback with the seattle seahawks, helped don with his buttons so their team could get back on the road. >> a humbling experience. you got to do something. you have seen it there. seems easy for everybody else. >> there are so many challenges he was going through that i couldn't help with. but this is one change i thought i could do. >> calling on her own experience as children's clothing designer, don's wife, mora, got to work creating a line of magnetic clothing. free of buttons and zippers that would help her husband and others regaun their end pentens. >> so it is as simple as lining it up. >> i wasn't sure what to think. but as it grew, you have people, the e-mails you got were incredible. helping many people across the nation. >> the ma dp na ready magnets are strong enough to keep the shirts closed but not so strong that shirts are difficult to open. >> and you're dressed. >> dr. sanjay gupta, cnn.

3:09 pm
just days after winning reelection, chris christie played i could about his future on the sunday talk show circuit today. sound like christie is laying ground work for a possible presidential bid instead of taking a victory lap in new jersey. >> it is simple. people want the folks they elect to get the jobs done. i'm the governor of new jersey. that's my job and that's what i asked for for four more years and that's what i intend to do. >> four more years. >> listen, who knows. i don't know. there are obvious problems that need to be fix and people in washington, both parties are are not fixing the problems. and neither is the president. they look at new jersey as, we are not using divided government as an excuse ton act. >> let's bring in cnn political commentaty maria car don'to, joining us from washington, and cnn commentator ben furgason.
3:10 pm
he is joining us from dallas. ben, i will start with you. do you think christie is conservative enough to win over tea party. >> i do. there are some issues that there will be conservatives that have problems with him, issued with limb. but you look at mitt romney and john mccain and they were not even close to the conservatives and both of those won the primaries. and with a dynamic guy like chris christie, i think he will be able to give a really, really, really tough run for other candidates that will be in there because he is so dynamic. when he talks, he commands people's attention. they believe him. he seems genuine. which you can't say for a lot of politicians. so i do think he's got a very good shot at it. and a lot of people wheb you get in a room and watch and speak, people are inspired by him. that's what you've got have during the primary. people have to like you as a human being and he obviously has that x factor. >> maria, something that makes
3:11 pm
him appealing towards conservatives is something that can make him appealing to staunch democrats. what do you think? >> well, it is really difficult to tell which chris christie is going to show up for the primary process, if decides to run, which clearly i think he is planning a run. here is what i mean by that, martin. he already started walking away and wishy-washi on one of the most important issues of 2016 and that's immigration reform. he seems to proud to have won the latino vote if new jersey and now today he could not answer with a straight face whether he would support a path to citizenship foreign documented immigrants on immigration reform when he had already done so in new jersey. so he is already starting to run to the right because he knows he can't make it through the primary process. that that is going to be kryptonite for him if he doesn't make it through the primary
3:12 pm
process. >> if you look at what he says today, he ran against all -- he ran away from all major issues dealing with the presidency, including what he would do with sir why, iran and other places like that. there's smart because there is nothing to gain right now. just a week after winning reelection handedly as governor of new jersey and a much more liberal state and seeing that h hispanics came out for him web won overwhelmingly. >> he was smart to walk away and say, i just won governorship. i'm not going to spout off o about these issues. look, there are people out there, and you are a prime example of it, that would love for him to get into the early scene and start beating him down from the democratic side. he is not going to play that game with you. he is not going to give you the chance to do that. >> i have one question. >> sure. >> and let's try to move on. "time" magazine puts out this
3:13 pm
very controversial cover and it features christie there. the editor claims this is not about christie's weight. do you believe him, maria, go ahead. >> no, look. "time" always likes to put these kinds of covers because it starts conversations like the ones we're having. so of course it pushes people to look at cover and it go read "time" magazine, which is great for them. but i think at the end of the day, it is about having a conversation about christie, about his issues, and frankly about his weight and whether that will an issue. but going back to the earlier conversation, p t is about whether he can attract the same in nuew jersey for the win, and he will have to in 2016. reform is not just a national issue, it is an issue that every single republican candidate that wants it talk about for president has the position on. and he embraced comprehensive
3:14 pm
immigration reform. he embraced pathway to citizenship. so him to walk away from it now is glaring. and the latino vote will not support him if he does that in 2016. >> what is glaring is how testifyfide you are as a democrat are is of chris christie. and i love that. you're terrified of that guy. >> no, it is not glaring. absolutely. not terrified. i hope he does run. >> ben, let me just ask you to comment on this. that is, there are a lot of people overweight in this country. and they look at chris christie a as man who exemplifies a lot of them. is it wrong to worry about what the weight impact is going to be for him. >> i think it is just that an incredibly pathetic magazine cover by "time" magazine. it would be as distasteful as putting barack obama on the front and saying the donkey in the room under his name. it would be unacceptable and people would be angry. and they obviously are trying to hit on him, saying, is the guy
3:15 pm
too fat. i think "time" magazine knew exactly what they were doing. this went a mistake. and they are trying to make his weight an issue. and i think it may back fire. he obviously is a guy that's been candid about his weight. he had surgery, recently. he says i'm 50% of the way where i want to be losing weight. that should be commended. i think he is real and raw guy and there is nothing wrong with not having a six pack if you're a politician. he is not an olympic athlete. he is trying to get in bet are shape. but again, for "time" magazine to go this low this far in advance kind of goes to what i was saying earlier. they are terrified of chris christie as well. >> i want to move to benghazi before we run out of time. he spoke to cnn's candy crowley on state of the union. take a listen. >> only reason is i've been trying for a year to get interviews without holes.
3:16 pm
and you just can't allow something this bad and this big of national security failure, for the administration to investigate itself. i don't want to hold anybody. all i want to do is talk to the survivors. >> let me ask you this, marimar is this a proper tactic for graham to take? >> i feel it is a tactic he feels he needs to take because he is facing a primary at home in south carolina. i don't think it is smart for him to do this because he is cutting off his nose to spite his face. if when a really wants is to make sure that what happened in benghazi doesn't happen again. that to me wreaks of politics and does not go to actually trying to resolve what happened and more importantly, making sure that it doesn't happen again. >> i was going to say, go ahead. >> politics has started the day that the white house coordinated
3:17 pm
an effort to go out to the american people, with susan rice, and make up and fabricate an absolute and utter lie, telling us this attack was a spontaneous protest, which we now know emphatically was a lie. and then to keep going with that lie, saying it was a protest because after youtube video that the people in the middle east that surround this cons late didn't even know it existed. for lindsay graham to come out and say, i don't trust this administration because they went out and lied to everyone about what happened is not partisan politics when you have an ambassador that dies and no one to answer questiones about it. and the only people talking are the white house and you know their story from day one was a total fabrication of american ak bat ambassador dying on 9/11. >> what underscores politics, martin, is that he said this
3:18 pm
after the cbs 60 minutes report, which has been debunked because they used a source which is not reliable and they retracted it. >> i'm so sorry we couldn't find anything to talk about today. well work on it. >> no kidding. >> thanks so much. >> new york city asked a judge to step into the battle over his controversial stop and frisk program. that's next. just by talking to a helmet. it grabbed the patient's record before we even picked him up. it found out the doctor we needed was at st. anne's. wiggle your toes. [ driver ] and it got his okay on treatment from miles away. it even pulled strings with the stoplights. my ambulance talks with smoke alarms and pilots and stadiums. but, of course, it's a good listener too.

a birthday party turned into a crime scene late last night. two high school student were shot and killed at a party outside of cyprus texas, that's just outside of houston. 19 people were wounded after someone fired into that crowd. many of those people were wounded as a result of gunshots. this afternoon, the sheriff gave more details about what happened. >> out of no apparent provocation, someone discharged a firearm in apparent celebration of music. someone else who thinks it's important to carry a pistol to a birthday party decides to pull theirs. and recklessly reacted to the gunfire and shoots into the crowd. >> sheriff said the invitation of the party was posted on social media and over 100 people were there. deputies are looking for two
3:23 pm
suspects and are trying to determine motive. the legal fight on the controversial stop and frisk policy in new york city is heating up. this time the city of new york is asking a federal court to overturn a decision to require the city to change its stop and frisk policy. rosa flores joins me from new york. rosa, hello. this is policy that generated heated conversation on both sides, hasn't it. >> it's been pretty explosive and the timing of this is very interesting. given that mayor bill deblasio just claimed city hall. and may we add with a very wide margin. and he is openly against the stop and frisk policy and openly said he would drop the city's appeal when he gets into city hall. so what do we have here, folks? in a filing, city of new york attorneys are asking a federal appeals judge to avoid the order issued in august by a lower court that required the nypd to change its stop and frisk policy. here eat back story. in august, a court found that
3:24 pm
stop and frisk practice used by the city of new york, they were unlawful, unconstitutional, targeted tens of thousands of blacks and hispanics and ordered city of new york to make changes. while the city appealed and in october, the new york police department was given the green light to resume the stop and frisk program by that appeals court. who said the residing judge jeopardizesed the appearance of partiality by public statements. subsequently a randomly selected judge would be assigned it that case. now the city of new york is saying, we want that lower court, that august decision, to be completely annulled all together. and we have been trying to get in contact with boom the bloomberg and incoming de blasio administrationes about this new filing. but we haven't been able to reach them. like i said, martin, mayor bloomberg has but a few weeks left at city hall and when de blasio takes over, he has been
3:25 pm
very, very clear that he does not support stop and frisk. so that heated debate is for sure going to continue. >> rosa, when can we expect a decision? >> that's very interesting because of course in this case, they are at the mercy of the courts. so they really don't know when that would come about. but it's really interesting because not only is new york, you know, waiting about what's going to happen regarding stop and frisk. but really the rest of the country is too because of the precedent that would be set here. martin? >> rosa flores, thanks very much for the update. anthony bourdain traveled to detroit tonight for" parts unknown." he visits with a man who built a home with left over parts from the city's glory days. >> maybe it started to turn here. packard automotive plant opening

indictment of the nfl today. >> it is. and terrible against the miami dolphins. nobody is bringing this up. but the people really at fult here is the coaching staff of the miami dolphins and also the general manager and owner. i talked to an nfl executive this week who is very well known, been around for a billion years. he substantiated what i thought before. he said there is no way in the world all this cot have taken place in that locker room without those entities knowing about it. they know everything there is to know about these guys before they draft them. right here in atlanta, georgia, the owner of the falcons, arthur blank, his secure guy is former secret service guy. what does that tell you? they had to know this was kbing on. >> terrence, thank you. >> thank you. >> next, we're going to las vegas, baby. don lemon, hanging withoanthony bourdain for tonight's "parts unknown." don't go anywhere. .
