#youjackass. >> we're out of time. first came the panic then a sense of relief followed by anger. now the search for answers is on in hawaii. one day after that false emergency alert warned of a ballistic missile attack sparking fears. can you imagine yourin your agoy lasting for 39 minutes until the all clear, quote, there is no missile threat to the state of hawaii. repeat, false alarm. only one person could accidentally push the wrong button waiting for answers. well. com to a brand-new hour of america's head quarters. i'm eric shaun.
3:01 pm
>> the frightening message went out yesterday and with the investigation getting under way, pictures like this will be hard to forget with people scrambling for shelter and fears for their lives. will carr is live in honolulu with the latest. hi, will. reporter: hey, arthel. residents are here trying to figure out how this could happen. and even afterwards why it would take 40 minutes to let everybody know that this was a false alarm. take a look at the text alerts that residents got just after 8:00 a.m. on saturday morning. it reads, ballistic missile threat, inbound to hawaii. seek immediate shelter. this is not a drill. this sparked panic. residents believing that north korea sent a missile that would take 30 minutes to hit the state. we spoke to the congresswoman who believes this type of alert
3:02 pm
should be in the hands of the military moving forward >> the panic and fear that hit our residents as well as our visitors that were here, it's inexcusable because it's a mistake. reporter: part of the problem is people had no idea where to go or what to do. we had video of one family trying to put their daughter into the sewer. others tell us they wanted to be as close as possible to loved ones. >> we realized we have no idea really what we're supposed to do. we were already in the house but we didn't know what the procedures were. i guess just sit there. >> like where do we go? reporter: what ultimately happened is that an employee with the emergency management agency here in hawaii hit a wrong button and the way the
3:03 pm
system is set up, it took 38 minutes to put out a correction text. that was a long 38 minutes for the residents of hawaii, arthel. >> i can only imagine. here we are a day and some change later. have you had a chance to talk to people about the reality of what happened and any thoughts if that could happen in real life and if it's not a drill? reporter: well, 24 hours later some residents are taking it lightly. but it was definitely very very serious when people didn't realize exactly what was going on yesterday. and there's really a sense among residents in hawaii that they realize that they are a target. you can go back to pearl harbor which is not far from where we are here. they were a potential target during the cold war. and rhetoric has ratcheted up between the united states and north korea in recent months. they realize that even if it's not likely, there's the potential that they could be a target. so something like yesterday certainly makes this much more serious. >> will carr there in honolulu.
3:04 pm
thank you. the pentagon said it had nothing to do with that heart-stopping alert. tonight it's raising questions about whroarnt state governments, not the federal government or the u.s. military should have jurisdiction to warn the public in these situations. alison barber in washington with more on that. good morning. >> hi, you just heard from will there that this is being blamed on human error. hawaiian officials are already making changes. lawmakers here in d.c. say quite simply this cannot happen again. >> these processes failed so epically that caused this trauma, that caused this terror all across the state of hawaii, must be fixed immediately. and those responsible for this happening need to be held accountable making sure that this cannot, it cannot happen again. >> yesterday the fcc said they
3:05 pm
would be investigating the false alarm. today the chairman says based on what they've seen so far, quote, it appears that the government of hawaii did not have reasonable safeguards or process controls in place to prevent the transmission of a false alert. the chairman went on to say that moving forward with the investigation will focus on what steps need to be taken to ensure that message like this doesn't happen again and state, local and federal officials have to work together to spot vulnerabilities in these systems. on capitol hill plans were in place to talk about emergency systems. the house planned to hold a hearing in early february to address emergency alert systems. now sources say what happened in hawaii will be part of the discussion. department of homeland security secretary kirsten nielsen says a response exercise at the federal level is set for next month. >> when we look at response, we all act under something called the national response framework.
3:06 pm
we test that frequently using different scenarios. we had a deputies committee, the deputy secretaries of the department exercise in december and we had already planned to have a prince fl cabinet level exercise early next month so we'll continue on that. >> nielsen talked about a concern that the fcc and lawmakers have that this error could have people lose faith in the alerts. called an unfortunate mistake but went on to say don't draw the wrong conclusions. these alerts are vital and can save lives. >> in 20 minutes from now we'll talk to general jack keen about what this means with the crisis in north korea. thank you. eric in the false missile alarm is raising concerns about the state of the country's national security. reporters say president trump was on the golf course in florida when the erroneous alert was sent yesterday. he left for mar-a-lago about a half-hour later following that
3:07 pm
mistake. phil is live in west palm beach and i understand that the president is back in mar-a-lago this evening. reporter: good evening. he is, after spending about five hours or so on the golf course or in the clubhouse at the trump international golf club just down the street. whether he was golfing 18 holes as he was yesterday, still no official confirmation from the white house. but it was there at the golf club when everything was going down in honolulu and the other islands of hawaii yesterday. suddenly that false alarm going out about the incoming ballistic missile sparking 38 minutes of terror and panic on the islands. well, as you just heard the homeland security secretary did say that the administration was not scrambling but was pretty much on point and in control. now as for the rest of this evening, nothing public is scheduled for tonight, as was the case all day yesterday. the president and the first family are expected to have somewhat of a quiet evening.
3:08 pm
however we've received word that the white house press pool has been summoned back to mar-a-lago. so we'll see what exactly that entails for the next hour or two. could be a photo op. we shall see. >> i'm intrigued and i'm sure you seal have that for us. meanwhile, the president was busy tweeting today too, right? reporter: yeah, president trump beginning of course every morning here in florida when he sends his time here in mar-a-lago tweeting. he was pleasing the economy and accused "the wall street journal," our sister company, of misquoting him on purpose. as he also said a fix on daca which aims to do something with the 700,000 or so immigrants in this country here illegally after having been snuck in by their parents. after mutt. talks in d.c. last week, an answer is still illusive for
3:09 pm
both parties on what to do with the dreamers brought into the country illegally. it was during thursday's oval office meeting where president trump made that alleged disparaging if not racic comment referring to haiti and african nations anations. the president tweeting this immigration note this morning, daca is probably dead because the democrats don't want it. they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our military. a major condition for daca reform and a deal with the republicans and democrats being passed for the president at least is funding, congress funding what he asks for as far as building that border wall there along the border of mexico and texas. also, the president hopes to reform the visa lottery as well as chain migration where you can bring in or at least fast track your relatives overseas once
3:10 pm
youyouget a green card in the c. the president and the republicans would like to see all of that reformed. >> thank you for that wrapup tomorrow is the federal holiday marking the birthday of dr. martin luther king jr. and hundreds of children and teens celebrated this weekend with the commemoration at washington state. the seattle youth march taking place yesterday, it focused on ending poverty and building equality this year. youth organizers say the goal of the march is to teach children about the importance of working together to fight for a better future and keeping dr. king's lessons and his dream alive. >> a very good march there were sure. >> absolutely. meanwhile yoofer seas they're risking their lives in the streets of iran. coming up, what iranian activists fighting the regime in tehran told me about president trump and the message to americans about the future of their country. also with the potential government shutdown looming,
3:11 pm
will daca be included on a spending bill. >> the program was unconstitutional. what we should be focused on instead of the court interventions and distractions, is we need a permanent solution. blanblank
3:12 pm
3:13 pm
3:14 pm
3:15 pm
should be a bill of love truly should be a bill of love and we can do that arthel: that was president trump on tuesday as he try to reach a deal on daca and a federal spending bill that congress must pass by friday to avoid a government shutdown. but you could get whiplash following the twists and turns over immigration. today the president tweeting, daca is probably dead because the democrats don't really want it. they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our military. and with the deadline to keep the government from shutting down fast approaching, republican senator cory gardner of colorado giving an overview of negotiations. >> what we're dealing with right now are children who were brought here as children at a very young age, no fault of their own. that's what we can address. we can address this issue of chain migration as the president
3:16 pm
says and we've done that. we've broken or stopped to put an end to the diversity visa lottery that the president asked for. that was a bipartisan solution. and if people want to do better, we can. arthel: it's talk about this with alan smith he is here. you have the president tweeting today, daca is dead, dems don't want it, they're messing around. last night, around 10:00 p.m., you've got the federal court announcing the current daca recipients can renew their legal. how do these two moves set the table for talks on da daca this week? >> what they would signal initially is it's going to be unlikely to see a deal come through on daca ahead of the shutdown. and the court order itself means that democrats can wait a little bit and do a clean cabbing ka c.
3:17 pm
they shouldn't do a shutdown over daca. and now the court bill hasn't passed extending daca. i think the president's characterization was interesting after that court order. a little early to say it's probably dead after what happened. but it's looking more unlikely that we'll have a deal on daca this week in line of the government shutdown. arthel: will you have the deal on daca before it's off the books and expires? >> it would be surprising in it isn't. there's a lot of bipartisan support to get something done. the whole controversy late last week with the alleged vulgar comments that the president made happened when he was presented with the bipartisan bill that durbin and graham, the two senators has essentially come up. there's momentum to get something done before it expired. it may not need to happen with the funding bill. arthel: so now can the president come in as sort of the deal
3:18 pm
maker and agree to a clean daca bill, okay, we can deal what that in a little bit but let's deal with this now, forcing the democrat's hand to make concessions on the wall, immigration and the budget? >> it's interesting because in this bipartisan deal they did make some concessions that president trump wanted. but a lot of people thought that the democrats would have never made. and the fact that they made those concessions and trump turned the deal down saying earlier in the week he would sign any bipartisan deal given to him, it makes it harder to know what hand -- arthel: what's the deal? if you're saying at this point the president doesn't have to force the democrats' hand. saying they came to the table with concessions and now the president today is saying daca is dead. what gives? it's all a political game. i mean that's really what it gets down to. unfortunately people's lives here are at stake. so the idea is that diss -- i'lt you answer. let me ask the questions and let me ask you.
3:19 pm
so, listen. both sides stand to make political gains and plip-ups this week. so where is the republican leverage and where might they compromise and also for the democrats. >> i think republicans are going to compromise on daca. they're going to compromise on how much funding for the proposed wall, how much quote border security as they like to address it and stop regarding the diversity lottery that trump wants eliminated. both sides are giving up a little own each side. but at the same time immigration is trump's signature issue. so any acceptance by him on a bipartisan deal i think he has a little bit of fear that me might look weak on immigration to some extent. arthel: how so? u yo knoyou know what? if you do math, that's 70%, 30% and the president is a deal maker. that's what he is. >> that's often forgotten. a lot of people voted for president trump so he could
3:20 pm
break through some of the partisan being that he's a nonideological background, at least before he ran for president. but when it comes down to it, this is something that he was so hard on during the campaign. his immigration platform was so rigid that every time he's backed off a little bit he's had to double down stronger. arthel: but why would he back off if he's got the democrats at the table saying okay we're willing to negotiate with you. why would he walk away from something that could get him the legislative win he needs. >> they brought it to him. immigration will be one of the only issues that gets any significant time this year because of the makeup of the senate. and the fact that they brought the bipartisan deal to him. he said he would sign any bipartisan deal earlier in the week and then he backed off, saying maybe there isn't real deal that can be made here. arthel: okay. >> at least an all-encompassing one. arthel: government shutdown, yes or no. >> no government shut down.
3:21 pm
arthel: i agree. alan smith, thank you so much. eric, take it away. eric: to iran now where the agency says that the government has led to restrictions on telegram. that's the popular ad that the protesters were used to spread antigovernment views. we used it to talk to some iranian protesters about their cause and their message to the world. they thanked president trump and the american people for their support. they are risking their lives to bring freedom to i iran. iranian protesters from the streets telling fox news they thank president trump and the american people for supporting their uprising against the regime in tehran. we interviewed the activists in iran through a social media. hiding their faces. one protester told us, quote, we
3:22 pm
thank you president trump. we call on all of the supporters to put pressure with you and overthrow with us. protesters we talked to were blunt. they will not give up, they vowed until the hard line regime is toppled. they went a democratic and independent government and play a role in it. you heard people talking that they are happy that the united states and president trump is actually taking actions on the side of the iranian people and as you know, the overthrow of this regime and the establishment of a free country is in the interest of the entire world. another activist texts us his answers to our questions. the president called the iranian regime quote brutal and corrupt. how important was that to hear for you? he wrote, quote, he is correct and we approve of what he spoke. you should help the iranian people we need internet. we asked president trump to
3:23 pm
convince european union to ban the mull la. the banned national group, the the leader has been blamed by the government for the unrest. supporters have displayed banners with her photograph. the reason, one told us, quote, we have no life in iran. our life and death is equal. we have nothing to miss. we want freedom. just poverty, unemployment and corruption is the result of the regime. these uprisings have just begun. their patience have come to on end and they have in to lose. nobody wants to go back. we want to go forward. people want a free republic. that's what people are chanting. we know we need to be at risk for a revolution and we accept it. on friday the president continued waiving sanctions against iran under the nuclear deal saying that will be the very last time and he gave
3:24 pm
european countries four month to fix the controversial agreement. and the activists i talked to want stronger sanctions against tehran such as cutting off oil exports and cutting off access to the international banking system. they also vowed they will not give up. you can read more about them on fox or go on my twitter. fascinating group of people who i was privileged to be able to talk to. arthel: it's good that you can speak directly with the protesters like that. eric: it's amazing. the use of this app. it's amazing. arthel: it is really fas fascinating. a turkish plane goes off the runway dangling from a cliff. nose just feet away from the sea. nobody was hurt. the video is unbelievable from inside the aircraft was people were screaming an panicked. a false alarm warning of an
3:25 pm
inbound missile was accidentally sent to a million people in hawaii. but what if that threat were real? we're going to discuss it with our military analyst next recognize that we crossed the line. a terrible thing to happen and we're implementing changes already to ensure that it doesn't happen again. we will further refine the processes as we go forward. . panic on board a turkish
3:26 pm
3:27 pm
3:28 pm
3:29 pm
airplane that skidded off a runway and plunged down the side of a cliff just a few feet away from the black sea. the terrifying ordeal caught on cell phone video. passengers say there was panic and screaming when the plane careened off of the runway. all 168 passengers and crew members on board were safely
3:30 pm
evacuated. the airline is investigating that incident. wow. eric: that false missile warning that sent wide spread panic throughout hawaii yesterday is raising new concerns tonight about how prepared we are for a national security threat and whether this horrible mistake is now highlighting a need for talks between the u.s. and north korea over kim jong-un's continued nuclear threat. >> this is not just about what happened to hawaii and this is where i really hope that people across the country, that lierdz herleadershere in washington arg attention to what people went through and what the consequences of that can be. so we are facing a very direct nuclear threat in north korea. eric: let's bring in jack keen, now the chairman of the institute for the study of war and a fox news senior strategic analyst. general, good to see you. what does this false warning,
3:31 pm
thankfully wals, how doe false,t teach us that we must do in a more meaningful way. >> in trying to help our viewers understand the system, we have the capacity to track any missile launch any place in the world through our satellites and our sensors that are around the world. and of course north korea gets a particularly close focus as you would understand. the people responsible to do that, strategic command, a military command and a north american aerospace defense command, also another military command. what they would do in a matter of seconds, almost immediately when there's a missile launch, they detect the launch and then they track the launch in terms of where is it going. is it going to be a threat to our allies or a threat to the united states. and that is decided very quickly. and then military commands would be notified to that threat.
3:32 pm
and that military command would have the responsibility to notify local and state governments. this happens quickly, within minutes. what we had here, there was no detection of a launch, obviously. and no notification to the government of hawaii that there was such a launch. eric: one guy pushing a button. i mean, they had one test button, one button that was the real button and he pushed the wrong button. so should the state have any responsibility with this at all? why isn't the military, for example -- should it be a military responsibility to warn us versus the state agency. >> it's the military warning us, not the state agency but it's the state agency warning the people. we're going to provide information to the government. they have emergency action procedures that are designed to notify their population with floods, hurricanes et cetera. eric: are you comfortable with that when it comes to possible a
3:33 pm
nuclear device? >> yeah, i am. they made a mistake here and they got a bad system. they're going to fix it. eric: they've taken responsibility. they have apologized and said it's heartbreaking. >> the second part of that that was particularly troublesome, it took 38 minutes to turn it off. and that obviously distributed d to the amount of stress and strain that the population felt. the other thing that the military does, we don't just know when there's a missile launch and track it, they're responsible to intercept it obviously. and something coming to the continental united states, we have intercepters in california and in alaska, we have intercepters at sea, in the pacific ocean. eric: do you think they'll work? >> yes the interp scepter intercepterse in california and alaska have been working 60% to 70% of the time. we have other missile defense systems that work at a much
3:34 pm
higher degree. and with the congressional support they're provided in this budget they'll be improving those intercepters. eric: is kim jong-un chuckling because he struck fear in the heart of america? >> sure. this is a check mark for him. he caused stress to americans. he's reckless in terms of his personpersonalty to be sure. he's enjoying the moment. we obviously have a path ahead here. president trump put the mill takmilitaryoption back on the t. we've got to push that to the fullest and we're also executing a diplomatic option in terms of squeezing the country in terms of economic solutions. i think there's more we can do with china and there's more that we could be doing militarily. eric: the president as you know has been harshly criticized for
3:35 pm
some of his language. i want you to listen to what a retired lieutenant general of the south korean military said. he spoke in london at the policy exchange saying, quote, my president, meaning president moon, stated that president trump deserves huge credit for the two koreans coming to the table. president trump, i don't hope he is mad but he's made the conditions where he's put the north koreans at an imbalance. so he's put us in a direction where negotiations have started. we will be able to find a better solution. do you think the president or what forces deserve credit for this lieutenant general says is putting kim jong-un in an imbalance. do you believe that? >> there's a little truth to that statement, putting the military option back on the table. i also think as we know, the north korean's history is they clearly go to negotiations to advance their technology covertly. they like at times to get a
3:36 pm
little bit of goodwill and i think there's a play here particularly with the olympics coming. and when it comes to south korea, they want to drive a wedge between ourselves and south korea. but i don't disagree with the general. i do believe the president deserves a little credit here. but we looking at this -- and i know our government feels strongly about this. we need to have some skepticism about these negotiations. because certainly it's through negotiations that they were able, eric, to advance their technology in the past, not stand it down. and so the likelihood that north korea will stand down their nuclear capability based on these preliminary negotiations is very very doubtful. eric: yeah, the 1990 agreement with president trump -- i mean president clinton, the deal didn't work and the six-party talks failed. but they were at the table the other week and we'll see what happens certainly with the olympics.
3:37 pm
good to see you. thank you for your insight as always. arthel: president trump now decline clining to commit to meeting with special counsel robert mueller. is that in the president's best interest or could an interview finally put the russian investigation to bed. our legal panel is up next. plus, the california mudslides going from bad to worse amid a growing death toll. that story is up next. rrhea, gas or bloating? she does. she does. help defend against those digestive issues. . the death toll sadly
3:38 pm
3:39 pm
3:40 pm
3:41 pm
continues to climb from the mudslides in southern california. official now confirming 120 people were killed, four others remain missing. rescue crews are searching through mounds of mud, boulders and toppled trees looking for survivors. the debris caused major traffic delays with the closure of major roadways. the latest victim sadly was a 30-year-old father who was found.
3:42 pm
>> we'll see what happens. certainly i'll see what happens. but when they have no collusion and nobody has found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview. arthel: president trump taking headlines in the russian investigation this week during a joint news conference with the prime minister of norway. the president backtracking on whether he'll have a face-to-face interview with special counsel robert mueller saying it's unlike lie because there's no ed of collusion to begin with. however a former department of justice official in the bush administration telling fox news the president would be doing himself a world of good by agreeing to an interview. >> if the president comes in, he tells the truth to mueller that there was no collusion, he can then turn around and say to the america people, i answered the question, i deny that there's any collusion, let's bring this investigation to the end. if he refuse to talk, i suspect that's going to string this out. and as i said, a lot of people, rightly or wrongly are going to
3:43 pm
draw the conclusion that there's something to hide here. arthel: let's bring in our legal panel, both defense attorneys and former prosecutors. good to have you both here with me onset. david, since you're sitting here next to me, in terms of self protection, are there legal reasons why the sp president shouldn't speak to the special counsel and are there any legal protections that give him cover? >> the fifth amendment of the constitution protect protects hm speaking. arthel: why? tell me why. >> he's a target of this investigation. there's no mistake about that. there could be a number of criminal matters that the special counsel is looking into with this president. so because of that, because he's a target, he has the fifth amendment right to remain silent. and the translation as to what he just said is, we'll see, his attorneys are telling him about this right and that he should be invoking, in my opinion. arthel: robert? >> well a lot has changed since june of 2017 when the president said i'll speak to mr. mueller.
3:44 pm
what has changed, michael flynn got indicted and is now cooperating and president trump has no idea what his testimony and statements to the federal government are and he will not know the answer to any of those questions prior to going in and being interviewed by anybody with regards to this investigation. his lawyers are going to tell him, we don't know the answers to all of the questions they're going to ask and we don't know what flynn's answers are. you can go in there and possibly incriminate yourself and open yourself up to a perjury charge if you're called before a grand jury or lying to a federal investigator. and we all know he should go in and talk about collusion. but we know that the investigation is going more into the other ancillary answe aspec. not just collusion, business dealing and financial crimes. he could be opening himself up to a world of hurt if he isn't smart. arthel: go ahead. >> look at the manafort and gates indictment from the special counsel and that had
3:45 pm
nothing to do with collusion. that is about money laundering and his tore nick the past. so that's where trump has to be careful. it's not just about whether or not you colluded. that's not just going to be the question if he provides an interview. it's going to go into history, financials, money, tax returns. who knows. and that's the point that robert is making and i agree. you just don't know what the special counsel is going to be asking about. arthel: what about, bob, if the president submits answers in writing? >> well the question is going to be whether or not they'll accept it if it was the investigator, i would not because it's going to allow his lawyers to draft the answers for him. they're going to want to meet face to face. what happens is you can prep your client as long as as hard as you think and give him what you anticipate the questions being. but once they get into the room and the lights are on and you don't have the opportunity to whisper in your client's ear more or less what we talked about, remember this and he potentially goes off of the cuff. president trump has been deposed
3:46 pm
numerous times and there have been findings in the past, reports where testimony hasn't lined up with what his statements are. you can prep your witness and client all you want but once they get in the room you don't know what's going to happen. arthel: wouldn't the president want to speak with the special counsel in an effort to put an end to the russia investigation, to answer the questions, expedite the end, get it off of the books because the president himself says this russia investigation makes the u.s. look bad. >> yeah, sure, he wants to. and certainly when you talk about public perception, he's going to want to. but that's a different issue as to whether or not something is going to be used against you in the court of law. one additional point i would like to make. not only could they ask for limiting answers, the scope or written answers, they could also have to get what's called a proffer. what that means, and it's common in the federal practice, you go and give an interview but it's protected. nothing you say can be used against you. that's something i would be
3:47 pm
talking to president trump about. arthel: yeah, they could talk to the president about that but then the president would not want to inadvertently incriminate his son-in-law. >> it could protect president trump but it doesn't protect other people pep an. and when they bring you in for what's known as queen for the day and allow you to speak, they also tell you it doesn't stop us from taking the answers from the questions we gave to you and going doing further investigation that could incriminate you and other people. arthel: what happens to the mueller investigation without any interaction with the president in terms of in writing or interview in person? >> well, they are going to be relying on witnesses and cooperating witnesses. michael flynn has pled guilty and agreed to cooperate. george pop lo pop lop louse is
3:48 pm
cooperating. so notwithstanding the fact that trump actually talks, he's going to have other witness to potentially put a case together. arthel: i'll give you the final word, bob but here's a question too. now you have espn going before congress. might he be called by mule center. >> total wild card. now you know there's back biting and name calling and tweeting back and forth as to whether or not he's a loose cannon, is he telling the truth, is he upset because his ego got harmed because he got fired. we don't know what he's going to say. complete wild card. another thing out of the control of the president. now mr. bannon has the opportunity to come in and give more information that we potentially don't know about. arthel: really final question. what happens to the mueller investigation without the president's involvement? >> there's going to have to be -- they're going to have to make a decision whether or not they can prove crimes against the president or anybody else. if they can, they'll be indicted. if not they'll proceed against
3:49 pm
manafort and gates. >> drags out longer than it already has. arthel: thanks to both of you. and we were watching football on the break. it was fun hanging out with these guys. eric: thanks guys. she was sentenced to 35 years for leaking classified documents. had the conviction commuted by president obama. now chelsea manning, she wants to be a u.s. senator. her announcement and com announn straight ahead. 's go to sumatra. the coffee here is amazing. because the volcanic soil is amazing. so we give farmers like win more plants. .

3:53 pm
arthel: chelsea manning convicted of leaking sensitive government document to wikileaks is running for u.s. senate in maryland. manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison was granted clemency we president obama. airline has more on her announcement. >> caroline announced her running for senate on social media. weapon, we're running for senate, follow by happy face, rainbow hearts and we got this. her message on youtube was talking about current political leaders. >> we don't need them anymore. we can do better. damn right we got this. >> today manning is a transgender woman, writer and now democratic candidate.
3:54 pm
