6:16 pm
amendment flip didn't hurt him, the other -- the working segregationists, didn't see an immediate thit in the polls, b i think this feels different and even if it doesn't necessarily hit him rightaw y, he just looks wobbly,gh ri he doesn't look like a frontokunner. he los like a is gettable where before you ren't sure before this debate so i think that's the bgest ange in the race. 'll still the front-runner. he's still in the pole position but all of a sudden you've got harris and warren when i think robably did themselves better than any of the other candidates. he's essentially in the same tier with them. that's the way that i would look at it. there's your top three and you've got buttigieg and bernie. sanders who didn't do anything wrong at the debate, just because of the rise of warren and harris, sanders feels like a ondidacy that's stuck here, and he can't figu how to get his mojo back and he's still playing the greatest hits and
6:17 pm
still playinghe greatest hits and he needs -- heeeeds -- h needs a new thing. a little new material. a little new something because i think if you're debating between warren and sanders, you might say, warren isew. i iesande lst mitio thknow, we learned horrible conditions at some detention centers andheart wren father and daughter, too. t hheeus funding. pelosi not exactly thrilled, a lot of democrats not. where are we now and what happens from here? >> look, i think nancy pelosiok lo at it ando saw tw bad outcomes here, one, i mean, she -- it's understandable why many members of heroaucus dt trust the administration to use the money as it's intended, you know. this is money that's intended to take care of these kids, you know, to get them the needed -- the needed things they need, blankets, whether it's soap,
6:18 pm
things -- you know, schools so they can get the temporary schools in there, but at the same time i think she feared that the democrats would be blamed for not doing anything and somehow they were holding it up, so it was -- it was a rock ard a -- as a reminder, democrats have control of one-sixth of government, one-third, one half of one branch and there's only so much they can push here, and this case sometimes the house can jam the senatend sometimes the senate jammed the house, and, you know, that can go either way. >> yeah. >> but that's what happened re, and i imp thichnkmentat issue. she tries toss manage just a way to keep party as united as she can without putting the majority in jeopardy. to it is tough keep everybody happy. >> yeah. >> in this climate. >> especially n the democratic party is -- the spectrum of the democratic party i think hasgo tten wider. i think there'sre hesr-repca who arectually t
6:19 pm
shopping, you know, with some oe yet , se spectrum is wider. it's a good problem to have for e democrats and at the same time it's a very hard one. >> want to ask youpbout sident trump having a sit-down with vladimir putin and seeming to joke about the -- w what know now from the mueller report with vladimir putin kind of sarcastically telling him not to meddle in the elections and we heardrom former president carter responding to this. >> and i thinhe interference although not yet quantified if fully investigated would show that trump didn't actually win the elect16n in 20 he lost the election, and he was put into office because of the russia interference on his behalf. >> so you believe president trump is an illegitimate ? preside based on what i just said which i can't retract.
6:20 pm
>> wow. >> wow is right. >> your respons >> i think what the president did mocking this, you know, think he risks growing the impeachment caucus. i think that's the -- and, you know, he sees it as oh, watch, i'm going to troll the democrats, trot media. i said are you -- i said if you want me to. it's the strangest response, i'm like really speaking to the atesident of the united and then i'm like, really, is this on me to get you to tell putin? i do think the more he plays these games, it -- this is why i think he has this dilemma. he's abusing, even in as feels are you doing here and are you joking? are you sending a signal? at is this? i just think he's inviting more serious problems. the more he toys with this, the more house democrats feel like hat choiceh d thiey h the
