tv   The Ingraham Angle  FOX News  January 17, 2018 11:00pm-12:00am PST

11:00 pm
i tell the story a lot. it meant a lot in my life. have anything to say off? 877-225-8587. not your heart be troubled. we'll never be the fake news media. we'll never be propaganda news. laura! hello. >> sean: i never did the hog stuff. >> laura: you know, i walk 15 miles toing skoo school, pickled fruit. i did pick fruit, hannity. >> sean: siel on. >> laura: let's do a duelling with the we had a hard life. >> sean: what are the jobs you did when you were young? you went to dartmouth. si i delivered papers in the rain, sleet, snow. i picked blueberries. i worked at mcdonald's and was fired. >> sean: why were you fired? si um, someone locked me in the freezer once. svern what does that have to do with anything?
11:01 pm
>> laura: ended up with a filet sauce fight. sean, thank you, as always. >> sean: have a good show. 4ri we're coming to you from las vegas. police stone wall over the worst shooting in u.s. history that happened here last october. and we're going to ask some basesic questions that are still hard to find answers for. also, the inside scoop from congressman bob goodlatte on the democrat threat to shut down the government. unbelievable. if they don't get an amnesty deal for the dreamers. and, senator flake supposed bombshell speech, did see this? denouncing the president, he's a dictator. came across a more like a total dud. plus, even when the doctors on cnn are talking about trump, they make up their own facts. you aren't going to believe this one.
11:02 pm
first, unanswered questions and hidden agendas. that's the focus of tonight's angle. i'm ring tonight from las vegas where almost four months after the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. history there's still so many unanswered questions. it's bizarre. we made repeated requests to vegas p.d. for one law enforcement representative to update us on the investigation on air. of course killer steven paddock. they provided this. a terse e-mail from the public information laura -- officer, no one from the lvmpd will be waiting in any interviews about the 1 october incident for thing extra ham angle. oh, thanks. well, some new information has trickled out over the last few days i say most of it, when i really culled through it, only raises more questions. a lawyer for the police
11:03 pm
department says charges may be coming soon against some one else and is stemming from what officers discovered in that mandalay bay hotel room on october 1. remember, inside they found paddock dead, 47 guns, thousands of spent cartridges and other equipment. all of those backs he was somehow able to get into the hotel by himself. his girlfriend, lar mayor lou danley, has admitted, now, her finger prince are probably on some of the ammo because, get this, she helped load the cartridges. i have other information on her, too, you won't want to miss that. federal court documents that were just made public, ball games the press was pressing for them, revealed that the fbi as early as october 6, just five days after the shooting, believe that danley was the most likely person who aided and abetted steven paddock. so where is she now?
11:04 pm
why don't we have more information on this woman? why were they so eager early on to say paddock acted alone? after reporters pressed for the contents of search warrants in the aftermath of the killings, the federal government did release 315 pages of material in the last few days. but the las vegas police department has basically gone radio silent, citing concerns the ongoing investigation. well, now, a federal judge is mulling the request from the associated press and the las vegas review journal to force. release of search warrant affidavits and other evidence, such as inventories of what was obtained from their searchs. very important. there are many questions that remain unanswered. the paddock home was ransacked before authorities could return. that was october 10. again, why wasn't that locked down? and what happened to jesus campos, the mandalay bay
11:05 pm
security guard who exchanged fire with paddock and was injured? we saw hem on "ellen" then never again. where is the surveil ladies and gentlemen video of paddock gambling at the casino, checking in with all of those bags and anyone entering or leaving his hotel room. were wouldn't release that? given all we're learning, were authorities so quick to declare this a lone wolf shooting with no accomplices? >> right now we believe it's a sole actor, a lone wolf. sole shooter. no further threat we were aware of no, immediate threat. >> i want to emphasize we believe paddock is solely responsible for this heinous act. >> laura: authorities should do what's necessary, of course, to protect the integrity of the investigation. that's a no-brainer. but they've gone in the other direction, i think, trying to lock down as much information as possible. they're extremely defensive over there at the las vegas police department. we're big supporters of the police as you know.
11:06 pm
and we know, by the way, what happens in the absence of real information, conspiracy they aries. you see them all over the internet where they incubate and come to life. distrust and resentment builds among the public and the victims' families. we'll hear from one of the shooting sur vaifors coming up. but that absence of information, the vacuum, it's don'tly unconscionable. the biggest, worst mass shooting in u.s. history. the same game of hide the ball happens in ol have politics as well. we've seen scenarios where both government bodies and journal interests end up revealing or reporting only part of the story. >>, the part that they need to advance their own agendas. or cover, you know, cover their own posteriors. the publics interest isn't served in either case when the government does it or journalists do it. look at what the press has been doing, just in the past week.
11:07 pm
they've been fat shaming donald trump. >> tell me how a guy who its mcdonald's and kentucky fried chicken, diet coax, never exercises is in that good a shape. >> you think that's a problematic? >> border line obese k you characterize it as excellent health? >> do you have a waist measurement for the president, the weight is 239, seems just shy of obesity. >> laura: speaking of weight, while they're trying to push the narrative that the president is physically unfit for the office or mentally unfit, they keep insisting that he's a racist. that's the other stump they're pulling. all the while they advance countless nonstop, such emotional immigration sob stories. >> you have this christmas which i guess in the back of your mind you're thinking this is the last at this point in time, this is my husband, about to have to go to mexico, what did you do with
11:08 pm
your family? >> laura: by the way, that went on for about 10 minutes. how was your christmas, how do you feel, those types of really hard hitting interviews. i have a question for cnn, have they ever done such an empathetic interview with victims of an illegal immigrant crime or expose of the american workers displaced by cheap immigrant labor? i don't think i've seen interviews with presidents or heads of state that went on as long as that interview. you saw a tiny snippet. a band of jack always circling on the president on the most ridiculous matters, the ones we discussed, major stories and developments domestic and international are given short shrift, north korea, middle east, china, the trade war, no, we don't talk about that. we talk about trump's waist and his bmia recent pugh century va says america thinks they have
11:09 pm
the most biased media in the world. only 21% of trump supporters think the u.s. media is fair. i can't believe it's that high. only 55% opposed to the president think the media is fair. i've seen worse poll than that. who are the new john cons lors out there, david brinkley, peementer jennings, remember them? they reported on real stories, it wasn't all about them and making their moment in the press. of course our own bret baier, plays it down the middle. other than bret who else is out there? the executive branch and congress hide too much from us as well. to all those senators resisting the trump agenda on trade, immigration for instance, what are the big donors demanding? how has that changed your public position on these major issues, isn't that something you'd like to know? who writes these bills that are hundreds and even thousands of
11:10 pm
pages long, and are filled with all sorts of goodies inserted at the last minute, are they 24-year-old staffers other people, i mean, is there a collaboration of people who write this junk? this is the swamp at its worst, no wonder they don't want us to know what's going on. for the white house, i'd say open up as much as you can without hurting the delicate process of governing. be bfh, before f-hole meeting, was excellent. i hope we see more of that. the american people want facts and they want answers. not the big brushoff. especially from those entrusted to serve the public good whether it's the police, federal government, and public servants in the press, they call themselves public servants, too. at the same time, many people, i guess they probably want to hear less from politicians, certain politicians like jeff flake or
11:11 pm
cory booker, whose pitiful preening reminds us of why we elected trump in the firstix place. that's "the angle." >> laura: the biggest story in washington, the democrats' threat to shut down the government if they don't get a daca deal giving amnesty to hundreds of thousands of dreamers. my first guest was in that infamous meeting last week when president trump rejected that weak gang of six plan and allegedly uttered the horrible s-word. this lawmaker is also offered his own daca plan that is strong on border security, and immigration even forcement. and the. and the white house complimented on january 10. welcome the chairman of the house judiciary committee, bob goodlatte in washington. great to see you, congressman. i know you weren't at the meeting today that general kelly had were a congressional hispanic caucus. he did have some interesting things to say. i want to play a sound bite for you.
11:12 pm
this was general kelly on bret baier tonight. let's watch. >> there's been an evolutionary process that this president has gone through. as a campaign i pointed out to the members in the room that they all say things during the course of campaigns that may or may not be fully informed. but this president, if you've seen what he's done, he has changed the quays he looks at a number of things. campaign to governing are two different things. >> laura: when we hear words like evolve, congressman, a lot of trump supporters get nervous. on issues like the wall, mexico was supposed to pay for it, where are we? >> well, i think we're in a strong position. general kelly, secretary nielsen, department of homeland security, have been up here a lot on capitol hill. i wasn't at the meeting you reared to. -- referred to. but i know they're conveying, two members of congress, that the president is keeping his
11:13 pm
commitment, both with regard to security at the border and to making sure when people get across the border and apprehended or turn themselves in they're safely returned home and not simply released into the interior of the country. we have to end chain migration. the president as you noted had a great meeting at the white house last tuesday. millions of americans got to see that on television live or on tape. and they know this president is trying to solve this problem. but to solve the problem you have to stop and make sure that people respect the law. that's what republicans in the house are all about, that's what the legislation we have introduced is all about. yes, we'll doing? for the daca recipients but we have to make absolutely sure that as the speaker of the house has said, this shouldn't be allowed to continue. and therefore, we have lots of border security, lots of interior enforcement. >> laura: i'm going to get to specifically what that is. but your bill, your bill, you
11:14 pm
co-authored with raul la bra dosh, not what the president has asked for -- labrador, not all of what the president has asked for, to give release to the daca folks. i want to play a sound bite from mitch mcconnell earlier today. he seems confused about what the president can sign. let's watch. >> he's not yet indicated what measure he's willing to sign. as soon as we figure out what he is for, then i would be convinced that we were not just spinning our wheels. >> laura: wait a second, spinning your wheels? on january 10 the white house came out in support of your bill, congressman. how is that confusing for senator mcconnell? i'm not clear on that. >> well, i think it's very important that the house pass this bill so that the senate sees that there is strong, strong support for addressing daca, but making sure that we have strong borders and making sure that our laws are
11:15 pm
respected. >> laura: congressman we know that. why won't paul ryan bring the bill up for a vote? that would give this whole conversation a lot of momentum and take the wind out of the sails of the open border types, saying oh, trump is a racist, trump doesn't want to help these people, trump uses foul language in the oval office we're going to shut down the government. your bill gives him what he said he will do, and a lot of these democrats claim they're for border security. then you will take this other toxic element out of the equation. why won't paul ryan bring it up for a vote? >> i think we are taking steps in that direction. and the speaker and the leader have both indicated, today, that they're going to start having member listening sessions to learn more about this. >> laura: listening? listen to the people. you listen to the peep. . i sound like i'm blowing smoke toward you, but you listened to the people in your legislation. kelly was saying on bret baier, it's only going to be 700 miles,
11:16 pm
i guess, but that's not what the president said, he's evolving. you and your bill, you actually tracked what the president campaigned on for the most part, with the daca piece, he didn't campaign on. but i think president has shown he's moving to compromise and all the while jeff flake goes out there, calls him essentially stalin, lindsay graham leaking elements of the meeting. the negativity is coming from the same crowd that almost grove us drove us into the ground in 2008. i don't like it. >> i don't, that's why we're pushing for bill, things are moving in the right direction. yes, we have to get the leader to bring this bill to the floor of the house. >> laura: he meter do it. >> we have to do it. we have to get the members rallying behind it. we've been working hard on the bill, now we're educating the members what is in the bill. your viewers can help by letting members of congress know that
11:17 pm
they want these important security measures brought to the floor of the house for a vote. >> laura: they are. ending chain migration, ending visa lottery, we have people in the senate want to just move the deck chairs on the titanic and give the visa lottery spots to the temporary protected status peep from hurricanes that happened decades ago, correct? >> correct. and we absolutely cannot do that, the house will not do that. >> laura: that's ridiculous, nonstarter. >> i don't think the senate will, after all things are said and done as well i think there are many, many senators who are gun shy about that approach. >> laura: congress maine, we appreciate your joining us tonight and explaining this to us. and i think a lot of our viewers, my listeners on radio, are jacked up about this and they know what flake was up to and know what lindsay graham was up, and they're not going to tolerate it. live in los angeles tonight, seeking answers to many of those questions surrounding last october's mass shooting.
11:18 pm
new developments, mark fuhrman, former las vegas police lt. are here to break it down for you. do not go any where. liberty mutual saved us almost eight hundred dollars when we switched our auto and home insurance. with liberty, we could afford a real babysitter instead of your brother. hey. oh. that's my robe. is it? you could save seven hundred eighty two dollars when liberty stands with you. liberty mutual insurance.

11:22 pm
after the deadly mass shooting, worst in american history. why so many unanswered questions? let's turn to a couple of experts to break it down. former lapd detective mark fuhrman, who became a household name during the o.j. simpson trial. and randy sutton, former lt. with the las vegas metropolitan police department. great to see both of you. mark, let's start with you. it is four months, almost, since the shooting. we're now only hearing that they might be charging another individual after we've heard almost nothing from the las vegas police department, after the press had to press for a lot of these documents to be released. what's going here? >> well, laura, let's pause for a second and understand that we had 58 homicides, 58 individual homicide investigations. and hundreds of people that were wounded and that had to be documented and handled by the detectives. we haven't heard from one detective, which is unfortunate.
11:23 pm
let's look at some of the things that had to be processed. one is dna. if there was dna on anything that paddock hand thald was in that room, they probably pursued that. it is probably his girlfriend that, they're actually targeting. i don't think that's going to solve anything in this case as far as why, the motive, or really how paddock pulled this off. >> laura: randy, you are a veteran of the las vegas police department, i have a couple of friends that you probably know who are homicide detectives there, just retired a couple of years ago. and it's a tight knit group at the las vegas police. they deal with a lot every day. but this was so horrific on every level. what happens when we don't have a regular update, or even press briefings, i think, in a case like this is that people start saying what's really going on. well why aren't we seeing -- where's the video of him checking into the hotel. i've been asking this question,
11:24 pm
my producers laugh at me, i ask the question every day, where's the video of steve general paddock checking into the hotel. >> there's a lot going on here. and one of the things that you probably heard, has been unexapplicable to me, is that metro took on this investigation and the scope of it, of course, is huge, for some reason a decision was made to relieve the homicide unit of the investigation and give it to a rather innocuous unit that handles officer-involved shootings. that's one of the major questions that i have had. here's the thing, the initial law enforcement response was amazing. courage that these officers showed and the dedication they showed was absolutely stunning. but then you have this media blackout, as you have termed it,
11:25 pm
and it's very difficult to understand. it's a little inexplicable to me, how the sheriff has not been keeping the public -- >> laura: i know you aren't going to say this, randy, but did they screw up? or are they worried that vegas, i mean, it's a place that survives on tourism. people have to feel safe. they have to feel like when they check into a hotel there's not a guy checking ten bags with thousands of rounds of ammunition in the next hotel room. i get these casinos, they want to be thriving and hiring people. i get it. i find this would be really odd. frankly, infuriating, we got the big brushoff from the police today, we're big supporters of the police, big brushoff. what do you mean you're not going to talk about it? we aren't asking you to xree hiz the investigation. why do we know so little about his movements inside that hotel, no one ever went inside the
11:26 pm
hotel can him, no one came in and out, no maids? where's that security guard, he was on "ellen," he did one appearance on "ellen," he has some deal with the mandalay bay hotel. >> did the police screw up, no, they didn't. they have handled this investigation at the initial outset, with the professionalism that one would expect. however, you know, when you talk about giving the responsibility of this investigation to the proper authorities, well that would be the homicide unit. >> laura: those guys are great, i know them, great guys. i have to get fuhrman in on this. mark, i don't -- i'm a big supporter of the police, everyone knows that. but this was, we have 58 americans dead, we had 498 injured, we're not going to release this search warrant, not going to release that search warrant. we have one woman who got paid money while this thing was happening, he wired her money,
11:27 pm
she deleted her facebook account, before his name was released to the public she's deleting facebook accounts. that was odd. >> well, laura, randy is absolutely correct, i think it's slap in the face of the homicide detectives that do this for a living, officer-involved shooting team deal with deaths but usually involves officers. i'm sure that the thought process was that they handle a lot of ballistics and a lot of tracking, the path of bullets, they would be better, i guess, informed to handle this since the shooter is dead. that being said, the one thing i didn't like about this investigation, you had too many heavies, too many chiefs, too many from the big tower talking in these press conferences instead people that do this for a living. i think that's one of the things that became a mistake that now we don't have that information, we also have civil litigation, we have hundreds of civil
11:28 pm
lawsuits that are undoubtedly we're looking at. the city of las vegas, mandalay bay, the police department, even though i believe just like randy, the police department did nothing, they had such a small window to actually act. and i think they did it as he's put, bravely and heroically, they actually closed as fast as they could with the suspect. but mandalay bay and las vegas and an elected official that's handling the investigation as sheriff, i think there's a lot of unsaid politics going on here. >> laura: bingo, follow the money. >> i believe they're just slowing it down. >> laura: follow the money. >> there's no doubt in my mind, no doubt in my mind the mandalay bay is the one controlling -- >> laura: the information flow. >> especially when it comes to the employee, campos. i mean, he disappeared after appearing on "ellen," very contrived.
11:29 pm
>> laura: that's what i mean, on "ellen." we're going to continue, we're not done with this story. later on we'll speak to a survivor of the vegas shooting who has his own questions for the police department. you're not going to want to miss that. can you imagine if you were injured or lost a family member, not getting answers. senator flame, snowflake, gave a big speak blasting the president, everyone dawned. disturbing durbin and cnn were there.
11:30 pm
11:31 pm
11:32 pm
11:33 pm
arizona, gave this much ballyhooed and hyped speech today against trump. what a surprise, what a shock. it was rolled out like a broadway show with promotional interviews on morning television. >> it's a message being echoed today from the senate floor as republican senator jeff flake calls out the president for
11:34 pm
using the phrase enemy of the people to describe the free press. >> laura: then flake unveiled his big broadway-like debut on the senate floor. a one-man show that could have been called snowflake, a tragedy in one act. that's a playbill i wouldn't collect. sadly few attended, dick durbin, amy c. clovoture. >> a commitment that our own president uses infamously words spoken by joseph stalin to describe his enemies. the president has it precisely backward. despotism is the enemy of the people. the free press is a december pot enemy. they are the guardian of democracy. >> laura: huge response. from the floor of the senate. well, like so many broadway
11:35 pm
production, the flake show got lousy reviews, lost its backers, and opened and closed in the same day. that's show-biz. joining us now from california, victor davis hansen, from stanford university. and he's the author of the new book "the second world war" how the first global conflict was fought and won. great to see you bdh. the flake show, opened and closed in one day, can you imagine. joseph stalin and the president, take it away. >> yeah, we have -- it's sad, he's become a tragic comic figure. mass murderer of 25 million people, destroyed the russian people, compared to an elected president. if he really wants to be historical, we have had examples in our recent past of presidents that overstepped, went after the press. they formed under roosevelt to silence radio stations, went after the herbst family, "new
11:36 pm
york times." barack obama, we forgot, eric holder's justice department went after 28a.p. ropters, jailed a videomaker, went after fox news's james rosen, weaponized the fbi, letly onness learner wep on nice. it's sad, he talked himself into this never trump position where he was going to fail in the primarition, fail in the general election, fail in his first year, the rhetoric has to become a self fulfilling prophecy. it's not going to happen. then the other argument, even if trump's reaganesque message is good, his fingerprint is so tainted i can't accept it. implies that trump is saying or doing things we haven't seen in presidential history. the news coverage was 90% negative about lbj, we would hear that he exposed himself to his aids and we wouldn't hear anything about the civil rights act.
11:37 pm
trump hasn't done anything remotely near that. >> laura: they're deranged, victor, they are so deranged at this point. they're questioning trump's mental fitness? these people, they don't have one oar in the water, they have lost their oar and their boat. since we're in nevada, victor, and nevada has, like california, opened its doors to a lot of illegal immigrants, i want to put up a full screen for our viewers that i want you to react to. nevada and las vegas immigration, 170,000 illegal immigrants live here in the las vegas metro area, 170,000. nevada illegal immigrant population is 4.5% more than the national average. and illegal immigrants account for 35% of the foreign born las vegas residents. back in 2009, victor, the last time they were tracking the actual cost of illegal immigration to nevada, it cost the taxpayers according to the
11:38 pm
group fair, $630 million. you know, nine years later that figure is exceedingly higher. >> yeah, we have the same situation in california where in the last 30 years we have had 10 million people cross the border from latin america and mexico illegally. when you do that, and it's not -- the immigration is not measured, it's not legal, people are coming from one of the most impoverished areas, we want to give them parity, and you don't embrace the melting pot, you don't assimilate, you get what you have in california, 22% of the people in the richest state in the country live below the poverty line. one-third of welfare recipients, 40% of csu, the flagship, blue collar university system had to go under remediation first year. would be out of every three people ald mitted to a california hospital has diabetes. and one out of every four californians is not, was not born in the united states. these are existential challenges.
11:39 pm
when you don't asim lament or integrate you end up with california with the highest income sales and gasoline tax, then we're rated 48th in infrastructure. school scores at 46. >> laura: no, victor, i know you live in the central valley of california which is agricultural land, beautiful place, that's been transformed. much of california has been. beautiful place, love the state. but you should have seen the footage we were just showing, doesn't exactly look like what the beach boysing were writing there -- beach boys were writing about. when you think about jeff flake tying it back to the immigration debate, why should donald trump, in any way, debate in his own mind, gee, i'm going do a deal with durbin, flake, and graham after what durbin said about him, trump is a racist. and flake said about him, trump is joseph stalin. now they're going to try to
11:40 pm
guilt trump into doing a deal with those characters? >> no, he should president -- they don't believe the immigration system is broken. they're only going for a deal, daca is threatened to expire on its own terms. they feel open borders helped flip the southwest from purpose tomorrow red. the ethnic tribunes like the narrative. the democratic party likes it. their idea, it's great, the only people say it's broken are the people worried about putting their children in public schools with english as a second language. >> laura: the schools they don't send their kids to. >> they're subject to the consequences of their own ideologies. boutique apartheidists. >> laura: as long as they get their yards dodge for cheap prices, they're good. if you think slate is out of touch, just wait.
11:41 pm
up next we take a trip to cnn dr. gupta's alternative universe. before we take a break, a touching moment capitol hill, lawmakers paying tribute to one of our last of his great generation statemen and patriot bob deal, received the congressional gold medal, congress's highest award giving given to a civilian. he promoted president trump when the bushes were running from him. >> i have always said that you're no better than your staff. and i thank them for all they've done for me over the years. mr. speaker, i yield the balance of my time -- [ laughing ]. -- to the distinguished gentle woman from north carolina. here?
11:42 pm
we're voya. we stay with you to and through retirement. so you'll still be here to help me make smart choices? well, with your finances that is. we had nothing to do with that tie. voya. helping you to and through retirement. and sometimes, i don't eat the way i should. so, i drink boost. boost high protein nutritional drink has 15 grams of protein to help maintain muscle and 26 essential vitamins and minerals, including calcium and vitamin d. boost high protein be up for it
11:43 pm
11:44 pm
11:45 pm
pudding... ...pudding... ♪ [sigh] did grandpa win again? what do you think? yes! download the new words with friends 2 today. >> laura: we all know all about media bias. sometimes it's outright denial of reality. first, check out cnn's dr dr. gupta, crashing the white house briefing to grill the president's doctor. watch. >> he dus have heart disease? >> he does not have heart disease. >> laura: then gupta let to this conclusion on cnn.
11:46 pm
>> because of his diet and lack have exercise, the president has heart disease. those numbers qualify him for having heart disease. >> laura: did anyone tell you no means no? the media only knows one story line, it's their own. today the very first question at the white house press briefing, mind-boggling. it was questioning the navy doctor, ronny jackson's, report that trump is in excellent health. here with us to separate fact from fiction is a real expert, cardiologist, renounld cardiologist, back in washington. dr. o., tell us about sanjay's remote diagnosis of the president. >> tells you the goldwater rule should apply to neurosurgeons. sanjy is simply wrong. ronny johnson did a thorough exam and he's proven dr. gupta should stick to neurosurgery. >> laura: the calcium levels are too high?
11:47 pm
cholesterol, his weight? they were saying trump is going to have a heart attack in the next 3 to 5 years. i'm sorry, i know it sounds harsh, because mueller hasn't gotten trump yet, the only thing they can look to, hope he dies? honestly that seems like wishful thinking on the part of the media. >> i characterize it as magical medical thinking. the reality, admiral johnson did a very thorough exam, he looks at cholesterol levels, stress test, echo card gram and checked for possible diabetes. president trump actually, shockingly, has despite the purported diet of big macs, has cholesterol numbers that are pretty average for his age. numbers that suggest he's farther from diabetes than you or i. >> laura: and he needs to lose some weight, though, he has put on a few lbs as many of us do as we get older, that happens. he has to lose a little weight, maybe eat fewer big macs.

but he has great genes. i couldn't eat his diet and not be really heavy. but he's apparently okay. >> i couldn't, eye thesh. i was shocked. it's interesting, the reporters ask such detailed questions but they never talked about president obama's smoking, never talked about candidate clinton's passing out in 72 degree weather, and having to be carried into his scooby van. it's interesting, they're so determined to dig something up where nothing is. >> laura: okay, well, we appreciate it dr. o., and when we return back to the question of the hour for us from tonight from vegas. seeking answers on the mass shooting here, the worse in the u.s. history. we will talk to some one who literally had the front row seat to that horrific night. and has been trying to help other survivors and victims' families ever since. ♪ are you reluctant to eat in public because of your denture? try super poligrip® it holds for 12 hours to reduce denture movement, helps provide better bite,

11:53 pm
but every time we get a new piece of information it raises another question. what is the burning question in your mind that we hear that there may be charges, more charges in this case? >> well, laura, thanks for having me. and to let you know, this is my first day back in las vegas since being a survivor of the shooting. i had a meeting on the vegas shooting case. i have to tell you, when i got off the plane i was talking toward the xilt of the airport and i saw the mandalay bay outts window. i had two feelings that came to me. anxiety, and then the second feeling was anger. i speak for all of those survivors out there and all those family members who lost loved ones in the shooting. here's what we want to know. we want to know why the has vegas metropolitan police department, the fbi, in concert with the mgm and mandalay bay are scripting a narrative that this is just a lone wolf shooting.
11:54 pm
that this is just some 64-year-old or however old this dude was, paddock deshgs pressed guy that wanted to do a mass shooting. we know that's likely not to be the case. but you hit the nail on the head earlier. greed in this shooting, eclipses public safety. and we want answers. why the mgm and mandalay bay did not better prepare for this mass shooting. remember, you talk about this before, in may of this year, of last year, there was a credible report of a potential isis attack in vegas. so this was no, you know, no fictional event that was going to happen. i know we're going to find out in discovery in this case that the metropolitan p.d. and sheriff lombardo met with the casinos to make sure they had some kind of plans in place to prevent as ng mass shooting. >> laura: a friend of mine messaged me who was there that night. he said, and you could confirm

this, when they allowed people to leave the vicinity the ones that didn't already get out, they didn't check anyone who was leaving. the police actually, there was no check -- sometimes people blend in with the crowd. obviously this guy was on the multiple floors up. even that was odd here. we're almost out of time, final thoughts from you. >> yeah, laura, let me just tell you this, i was in the mandalay bay. i stayed there, i was on the 26th floor. let me tell you how bad the security was. the day after the shooting, i finally went to try to get back in my room. there was finally a security guard there. he didn't even ask me for any i.d. i went right up to my many. i went right up to my many. you won't believe how much is new at red lobster... ...that is, until you taste our new menu. discover more ways to enjoy seafood with new tasting plates small plates, with big flavor- like yucatan shrimp in chili-lime butter and caramelized pineapple. and if you like hot, buttery maine lobster, check out this petite red lobster roll.
