6:34 pm
migrants, that are coming from there, who have spent two decades here, in our, in the u.s., and lived here, brought families here, sit renz are here, we need to know that our congress are the ones who are literally going to save them, make sure that they know that they have a place in our country, and allow some of these opportunities that we were given as americans to be here to stay here and grow here. so, literally, again, i'm giving it back to our congress to save the day. >> but theresa, the name says it all. the acronym, temporary protected status, now been 17 years for salvadorians, when does temporary become permanent? >> when everybody gets on board. so we have right now we have bipartisan legislation, hopefully, that will be coming across to actually make a stance, so i'm looking for our congress to actually do something different right
6:35 pm
and in order for them to do that, we, again, have to raise our voices, we have to come together. we have to unify, we have to push legislation, we have to go to our senators, go to our congressmen, say look, this is not fair. and really just breaking it down into what we should see, right now, in order for us to be okay. you know? i mean, it is really our congress. >> a lot of talk about that. jean, before we go, i want to bring in you, give you last word when it comes to the president and the republican congress. this should not and problem, the president has his party on his side, both chambers of commerce. are they going to get something done whether it comes to this but also when it comes to doc a and the border small. >> i think massive deal to be struck, when it comes specifically to the he will is a have a door, 18 months to get permanent status, dls, deleted out, not, you know, kick you out the country, hey let's get you permanent stat us. the greater issue of docnd
6:36 pm
from democrats, i'm asking for pathway to citizenship with doca if i'm the president i'm asking for the wall quite frankly to be hon best it i think the tax revenue you will get from a million new citizens probably outweighs the ten to $18 billion to be paid for the wall. >> interesting start to 2018. theresa lundy, eugene craig, thank you so much. >> the president's agenda being overshadowed by new book it, says the trump administration is dysfunctional, the president not quit for job. now president supporters denouncing the book saying it is a work of fiction. >> reaction continues to pour in after the release of bombshell book fire and fury inside the trump white house. and it was returned to the shelves last friday, five days before it was expected to hit book stands. and quickly sold out at many locations, a isn't now on back order on line. the book paves the trump administration as dysfunctional and the president as unfit for office. but those close to the president are coming to his defense just days after the book's release. >> this is a book of fiction. not
6:37 pm
there are so many misrepresentations in this book that it shouldn't be taken serious. >> i this book is complete fanú. >> those statements are just absurd, chris. i mean, just pure fantasy. i'm with him almost every day. we talk about some of the most serious matters facing america and the world. complex issues. the president is engaged. he understands the complexity. he asks real difficult questions. >> the president again responded to the book's allegations as well as tweeting in part i've to put up with the fashion news from the first day i announced running for president, now put up with fake book, ronald reagan had the same problem and handled it well, so will i, despite all of the push back the book's author says he's standing by everything he wrote. >> if i left out anything, it is probably stuff that was even more damning. it is that. it is that bad. i mean, it is an extraordinary moment in time. >> and some of the more controversial statements the book came from former white
6:38 pm
house trang ethic, bannon didn't apologize outright but told fox news he regrets his comments distracted from the president's accomplishments. we should point out talk about the book, wikileaks over the weekends tweeted out link to whole pdf of the book to tell people hey if you're going towed to read this, why spends money, it is floating on line. >> will cause along of traction, a lot of talk. i don't think people outside the belt way really care. it seems to be insight. >> palace intrigues. >> to some degree, as secretary of defense james mad is said and he put it best, something the administration should probably take cue if they want to detract from this, i'm too busy working to read this book, ends of store. >> i you there g the battle for the virginia house of delegates continues, four democratic voters appealing court decision cleared the way for republicans to maine control of the at issue the district 28 race in northern virginia, this is different race than what we've been fog us g on. >> tom fitzgerald has been covering this one, hey,
6:39 pm
>> good evening, well, what's becoming increasingly clear, as the days go on, is that virginia needs to do better whether it comes to electing its legislature. now, the latest battlefront is opening up in the legislative district 28. and that's where several voters now are appealing to the fourth circuit court of appeals to start a new election in that district, and the reason is because apparently voters in that district were given ballots to vote on in districts which they did not actually reside. now, this is all complicated because of the fact that legislative districts do not necessarily line up with towns of people live in. so, you can have people living in the same community, going to the same places in the community, but they don't actually vote for the same lawmakers. look at this. sixty-one people in the house district 28. they were given ballots to house
6:40 pm
sixty-one people from house district 88 were given ballots for house district 28, and 25 people, and house district 28 were given ballots for house district two. now, if they are successful, what the voters in this district are asking the court to do is to go back in there, and order a new election in this district. but we should tell you, time is not on their side in this. they would effectively need a decision from the fourth circuit court of appeals sometime tomorrow, because as you know, the virginia house of delegates is set to take issue with their current legislative session on wednesday, so as it stands right now, the republican incumbent, bob thomas in that race, is slated to take that seat. now, the course is a seat that is being replacing of the outgoing speaker of the house of delegates howell. so a lot was riding on this, and you saw that situation last week, where they actually had to deliver a
6:41 pm
decision based upon a random draw, at this point, jim, it seems that we are heading toward another situation where another judge and another court is going to have to step in and decide what happens in a virginia delegation house -- >> sure. >> this is not a situation anybody wanted to see, especially when you consider how close and how much riding has been on all of this. you know, they've got new governor coming in. democrats thought they were at a point where they might actually even have been able to take control of the house of delegates. it does not appear like that's going to happen, at least if this fourth circuit court of appeals doesn't decide to step in here and order another reelection. >> so, clearly, i mean, they've had elections for a long time in virginia. is this the first time they've had issue with the wrong ballots going to the wrong races here? >> it is not the first time they had the issue, here is the other thing, too, we don't know how many other districts this has happened i
6:42 pm
these types of challenges has happened, you know there is could have happened in every single district. >> yes. >> we don't know that, because there have not been challenges in every single district. you know, the bottom line, part of the problem in all of this is the system of how we elect people. you know, it be jerry manned erring, or being house these districts are drawn. a lot of times they just don't make sense in regard to drawing a map that actually configures to where a town actually lays out its own borders. you see this a lot in congressional races across the country. but you have a system here, and a map, if you look at a map where people live, and luke at a legislative map, very often they do not line up and do not make sense. >> there you go. >> tom fitzgerald out of the colds, stay warm, thank you. oprah winfrey stealing the show. the former talk show host sending a message about the me too movement do your her acceptance speech last night and sparking ruth ores

>> big night in hollywood, bit of fashion statement while walking the red carpet. >> hollywood stars dressed all in black as a sign every protest against sexual harrassment accusations cents in hollywood and across all industries. it was also meant to be a sign of solidarity among actors. but the most talked about moment of the night was oprah winfrey's acceptance speech for the cecil b de mill lifetime achievement awards. >> and win that -- and when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificant women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenominal men.
6:46 pm
new cars. no, that moment ended up over shadowing the awards themselves and started fueling speculation that oprah will run for president. now, she has in the past said she's not interested but then stead man today said she would definitely do it. so ronica cleary, the pulls of the people, ronica? >> hey, jim, marine, a i don't think that room needs new cars. but, well, well put. i listened to oprah winfrey's speech last night it brought me back to actually hearing oprah speak about the first time she heard barack obama speak and she said she had this feeling that this man could be president. well, i think we saw a lot of people responds to oprah in that way after she gave her remarks last night. she spoke for about eight or nine minutes. she spoke about memories from her childhood, being inspired, and then of course this me too movement. and really gave a message every inspiration and
6:47 pm
now, viewers analyst nerves, they turned that into maybe the launch of a 2020 presidential campaign. of course, oprah winfrey would not be the first celebrity we are talking about in the white house, we have president trump in there right now, who was first a businessman, but then of course a reality tv star and celebrity. and there have been talks about other celebrities possibly running for office. so we asked people, with the pulse of the people, the bigger question. watch do you think about the idea of celebrities running for office? take a listen. >> i think that our current president and the fact that he was cents a celebrity, is now in office isn't always the best idea, i don't know, i think it depends on if they actually know what they are talking about. >> i think they have every right to run for office, and if we feel as voters that they are able to do the job of working with congress, and getting legislation passed, then they should be able to run for office. >> so apart from oprah, because i
6:48 pm
and i wish she would adopt me, i feel like the us presidency is like a ceo job of like a corporation that is the united state, and you have to have experience in that field. >> what do you think about celebrities running for offers. >> i don't think they're qualified. actually donald trump is not qualified. i don't need to read my man's book. i can watch him on tv and tell you he act like a nine year old child. >> i don't think a candidate should be validated on their celebrity status. i would look at their policies and other stuff like that. >> i love that girl in the middle who says she just says i love oprah. i wish she would adopt me. so, certainly, a wide variety of responses. the thing that gave me the most peace of minds, it seems like people would consider maybe what the person had to say rather than just the celebrity status. certainly, something i hope people
6:49 pm
going to the voting booth. back to you, jim, marina. >> i'll say there is i think the one take away, ron, a i'll bring you in on this, too, we should point out, oprah never said i'm running for president, she never hinted it at t this is all media speculation. >> hey, donald trump, did say back in 99, that fed had to pick a runningmate, woe pick oprah. >> that's right. >> did he say it. >> i don't think we'll be seeing a trump win ticket any time soon. >> speaking of former nominees, former republican president nominee, mitt romney had surgery for prostate cancer. treat was successful, his prognosis good, of course the 70 year old romney is being encourage today run for the utah senate seat soon be vacated by or end hatch. >> that's right, he changed it. >> massachusetts to utah. san francisco billionaire makes major announcement. about his political future, in washington. washington.
