you. so. far. there is a girl. trying to get. intentional tears well we're right now here at the scene of the attack just behind me is where it occurred i think that the atmosphere here right now is for a but also hopeful everyone that we've talked to has talked about the community here in charlottesville that it's very much so more like a family and that they will pull together and they have all been condemning the hate that happened yesterday most people do feel that those that were committing the violence yesterday were more out of towners than what the people from here are they said it's a very peaceful town i have with me the headline of a local newspaper here and there's
2:03 pm
a very intense picture you can see people were thrown up in the air during the attack as the car plowed down the street people were coming counter protesters were coming up to this alleyway when a car came down through the alleyway plowing through the crowd ripping through the crowd of protesters as you mentioned one woman did lose her life in the attack a thirty two year old heather haier of course the driver of the car fled the scene but he has been i rested and identified as twenty year old james fields of ohio he is now being charged with second degree murder for the death of heather there were also nineteen more people injured in that attack at this point there are still five people in critical condition. this attack did occur while the city with still under a state of emergency there was a heavy police presence here but the virginia national guard also here in the town of course it's been condemned nationwide quoting from the present he did say that
2:04 pm
all parties must be held responsible a comment that many people have attacked saying that he should have been more specific it's very clear who was responsible for the violence in the city. the main reason for today's unite the right march was the authorities plans to remove a confederate statue and to rename two local parks at least fifteen people were injured in the ensuing violence and schools were arrested purpose spray and makeshift weapons were used in brawls between the far right demonstrators and the far counter protest this in a separate incident a police helicopter which should be monitoring the rally crashed outside the town killing two offices of the u.s. president has voiced his concern over the standoff in virginia. we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many shots on many shirts it's been going on for
2:05 pm
a long time in our country. not donald trump not barack obama. it's been going on for a long long time if the k.k.k. team were going to there to start a fight shame on them if they were if that was done in the guise of a charity that charity should be revoked and severely disciplined same for the anti for if there are people behind anti for who are funding it through through charities which i suspect they may be and in provoking violence around the country even in this in a minute sort of passed between the time i was asked to come on the show i walked about a mile through places in new york where there are already protests they do not look very spontaneous to me they have printed flags printed placards you know i think people on both sides are spoiling for a fight here and we ought to think very carefully about what actually happened find out who may be guilty of what offenses investigate them and punish them accordingly before we leap to
2:06 pm
a conclusion as to what may have happened. amidst the violence in virginia many continue to blame it on deep divisions within american society and increasingly polarized politics. by spitta by you and i do we stand divided we fall but i've got to get out of. this. to cadge a. democrat. one of the reasons i won the election has been very very divided nation. this week auntie lost a campaign to help bring russian speaking children who are stuck at an orphanage in iraq because they were reportedly smuggled into the country by their parents who

2:16 pm
were we getting something in return from these president's threats i don't see it i've never seen the tension so high in the korean peninsula i'm extremely concerned i hope the president's advisors rein him in general kelly you know the new chief of staff he's got to tell the president you can't conduct foreign policy the way you're doing with words with fiery words i think the north koreans have put forth look we will stop our missile tests if you stop your war games we've been doing war games on that peninsula for fifty or sixty years from now so what good does it to walk away from that entry point into negotiations other than the fact that the united states simply does not want to really enter into negotiations is not why we only want negotiations where the negotiating entry point is the north korean

religious belief of muslims in this country around the world many of us who are marching or individuals from muslim heritage so i myself am a british pakistani who grew up as a gay individual. this is my community i have no interest in galvanizing hate against muslims because i will be subjected to that same hate this group was targeting islam must homophobia it wasn't targeting muslim people or even islam in general the council of muslims has never criticized or condemned muslim people it is only condemned and criticized is the most extremists who advocate hatred and violence against the people if these people have left islam and that's their right let's accept that they got a right to live there why are they constantly obsessing about islam they need to get a life move on enjoy their life on their new freedom as they tell is asking us to
2:24 pm

2:26 pm
there. are. a lot of welcome to all the parts. election of donald trump has polarized american society many ways including in its attitudes towards clever and what's appropriate trial supporters still see him as a truth smart deal breaker salt of the earth while his critics describe him as the ultimate we're nothing but contempt is there any middle ground between that you
2:27 pm
want to discuss that i'm joined by lawrence krauss as theoretical physicists and cosmologists as well as a merciless critic of. mr krause it's great to talk to you thank you very much it's great to be here i think. about number. one i don't know. let's talk about that but. a short while a little bit later because i want to ask you first about russia i know that many people in the united states believe that russians. are just two sides of the same coin but i beg to differ so i want to bring what brings you here to this country i came here for this amazing festival. to talk to thousands of people about so i mean it's been amazing. i'm just overwhelmed with the reaction and the response and the fact that people seem to really appreciate what absolutely you have very big following here and i'm saying that. also. a certain degree of pain because. it's become increasingly difficult to bring
2:28 pm
people like yourself scientists say to this country primarily because of the tensions between russia and the west have you had any do you have any hesitations about coming here no the only only this issue i had was the difficulty of getting a visa frankly i wanted to russia for a long time because it's so different that it was it was there was some tension but i've been here many many years ago and i want to see how things absolutely you actually wrote on twitter that the last time you were here was sixty seven half a century ago. i assume visiting moscow better than it was far more extravagant for a foreign there. yes you know especially young person i was i was thirteen years old what was the fiftieth anniversary of the revolution first of all and i wanted to i wanted to see what it was all about it was a very different society and it was amazing how did you manage to organize it because i don't think they gave it all it was in point wasn't easy but there was a i came with a group of students and and we and the group of students was taking care of very
2:29 pm
well and i have very vivid memories. of that and also how different it is now. you mentioned that it is different now but i wonder if you had any and failing because many in the united states believe that the russians at just the same as the soviets yes no i think that you know that kind of ridiculousness is just the experience of people who don't travel and don't realize that in every society people are are largely influenced by group by individuals and their friends and human life is much the same and aspirations are much the same and. it's really in some sense pleasant to see one hears from outside about tensions within russia about economic problems within russia and the sense i have. everywhere i've been is that it's just people enjoying life and enjoying each other well it's a very vibrant society and i think it's changing on just by the year it's changing by the month to be had there.
