Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are the broadcaster Penny Smith and the

:00:17.:00:19.

The Observer, most of their front page dominated by Donald Trump. The

:00:20.:00:39.

Observer has him battling to stay in the race as the few regrows over

:00:40.:00:44.

that tape from 11 years ago where he made some pretty sexist remarks. Is

:00:45.:00:48.

he really battling to stay in the race, is there any chance he might

:00:49.:00:53.

drop out? He keeps saying he won't quit and doesn't want to let his

:00:54.:00:57.

supporters down. He says he would never withdraw. His apology, he kept

:00:58.:01:06.

on saying it was in 2005. Yes, because of course he was so much

:01:07.:01:12.

younger than because he was 59. It's not as though he was 16 or

:01:13.:01:18.

something. It's not as though, we shouldn't be surprised, should we,

:01:19.:01:26.

about this. I wasn't particularly surprised. I know the words were

:01:27.:01:29.

offensive but I wonder how many people were genuinely surprised.

:01:30.:01:35.

What's interesting is a lot of senior Republicans, we've just heard

:01:36.:01:40.

Senator John McCain, withdrawing their support for him. It may have

:01:41.:01:44.

been reluctant support but they are almost using it as a pretext to pull

:01:45.:01:49.

away from him and disown him. I think they've been looking for that

:01:50.:01:53.

excuse. With these kind of comments it's not hard to have that

:01:54.:01:57.

justification. Ultimately the reality they are faced with is

:01:58.:02:02.

legally and technically there is no mechanism by which they can actually

:02:03.:02:05.

remove him, even if they wanted to. There's increasing sense his vice

:02:06.:02:11.

president Mike Pence could step into the frame. In order to replace him

:02:12.:02:19.

he would need to declare himself as disabled. The 25th amendment to the

:02:20.:02:30.

American Constitution says where a president becomes disabled somebody

:02:31.:02:37.

can step in. Or dies. Let's hope not. Either he can be declared

:02:38.:02:44.

disabled or he can withdraw and of course he went. The Sunday Times has

:02:45.:02:48.

a similar front page. And a picture of TV presenter Nancy O'Dell who was

:02:49.:03:01.

the target of the comments. His wife has said she finds these comments

:03:02.:03:05.

offensive and unacceptable and his running mate Mike Pence has said the

:03:06.:03:09.

same thing. There isn't anybody really who can say they support his

:03:10.:03:19.

comments in any way. Even Donald Trump doesn't. Robert Dinero has

:03:20.:03:22.

said he would like to punch him. He said he will fight back in the TV

:03:23.:03:29.

debate against Henry Clinton. That might backfire if he goes on the

:03:30.:03:35.

offensive about Bill Clinton. A lot of women think she was more sinned

:03:36.:03:38.

against than sinner, despite her comments in the past about trying to

:03:39.:03:42.

get rid of comments made by women. I think that the problem is that

:03:43.:03:50.

they've had that meeting. They've tried to sleep if there's any way he

:03:51.:03:57.

can be replaced and he can't. It seems like a real crisis for the

:03:58.:04:00.

campaign now but there's still quite a few weeks until polling. Without

:04:01.:04:10.

getting too analytical... You are welcome to be analytical. About 30%

:04:11.:04:16.

of Republican supporters would like Mike Pence to take over which means

:04:17.:04:22.

70% don't. A man who essentially wants to build a wall to stop

:04:23.:04:27.

Mexicans coming in and try and build a wall against Muslim voters. I

:04:28.:04:31.

think what we are going to see at the second debate is a much more

:04:32.:04:38.

combative Donald Trump, advised by Nigel Farage. Whether you like it or

:04:39.:04:42.

loathe Nigel Farage's politics, having interviewed him many times

:04:43.:04:45.

comic he's the perfect person to interview. Whether you agree with

:04:46.:04:51.

him or not he will say well yes and say whatever he is going to say. I

:04:52.:04:55.

think we are going to see Donald Trump talk about the allegations

:04:56.:05:00.

made by various women about the Clintons and Hillary Clinton will

:05:01.:05:02.

fight back against that. It will come down to sex and gender. Let's

:05:03.:05:07.

show you The Sunday Telegraph front page. They've got a picture of this

:05:08.:05:13.

show he was on when he was on his way to this appearance with an

:05:14.:05:20.

actress. By highlighting a line from Tim Stanley who is writing about it

:05:21.:05:26.

inside the paper saying the US right is supposed to be big on morality,

:05:27.:05:33.

compromise with Trump Lisa looking hypocritical and debased. It is a

:05:34.:05:40.

question for the right. They often call themselves the moral majority

:05:41.:05:45.

stop white do they still back Fevipiprant?

:05:46.:05:54.

-- do they still back Trump? I'm sure lots of people are looking at

:05:55.:06:05.

this... In a sense Hillary doesn't need those sort of people to vote

:06:06.:06:09.

for her, if people aren't voting for Trump and abstaining... That's true.

:06:10.:06:16.

It could be disastrous for his whole campaign but I really think the sort

:06:17.:06:20.

of people who vote on the whole know what Donald Trump is. When I say

:06:21.:06:26.

that I'm not being pro or anti any candidate but people know he has

:06:27.:06:32.

flaws, he says he has flaws... As Penny said at the beginning it won't

:06:33.:06:39.

surprise shock many people. If he were 201I think people would forgive

:06:40.:06:42.

it a bit more. Let's move onto the front page of The Telegraph which is

:06:43.:06:49.

about Brexit. NU Cabinet split says The Sunday Telegraph has emerged

:06:50.:06:53.

over the handling of Brexit as ministers privately attacked each

:06:54.:06:57.

other over how to approach EU negotiations. It's not as though we

:06:58.:07:01.

are surprised again. Is anyone surprised on this one either? Are

:07:02.:07:06.

you surprised by any news, Penny? There are certain things you go,

:07:07.:07:10.

that is a surprise, but not this. It's not as though people's views on

:07:11.:07:15.

Europe, particularly the Conservatives which have always been

:07:16.:07:18.

riven with factions for and against... They've got the Brexit,

:07:19.:07:24.

it's always been a divisive issue but here's all the European rules,

:07:25.:07:28.

they can rip that up and start again, but still they are fighting

:07:29.:07:32.

about whether they are doing a hard Brexit or soft Brexit. I don't even

:07:33.:07:36.

know what they mean and I was a political correspondent. This focus

:07:37.:07:41.

is on Philip Hammond the Chancellor. He is on the right of the

:07:42.:07:45.

Conservative Party. But not wanting a hard Brexit. For obvious reasons.

:07:46.:07:58.

Look what happened to the pound as soon as we heard about hard Brexit.

:07:59.:08:05.

Philip Hammond, Chancellor Sir if you're watching I'm sorry to say

:08:06.:08:11.

this, I'm sure he is one of his advisers are, but it's not his first

:08:12.:08:16.

area. He is learning as much as anybody else. He saying watch out,

:08:17.:08:22.

the economy is on a precipice, better do something, this is what

:08:23.:08:26.

I'm going to do, he says. Thank you so much for being with us. I've

:08:27.:08:33.

ruined the paper! I've done that before!

:08:34.:08:36.

Thank you Sean and Penny, you'll both be back at 11:30pm

:08:37.:08:38.

for another look at the stories making the news tomorrow.
