Hello my -- level -- foxnews.com live headquarters.
In New York the court has recessed until 8 AM tomorrow morning eastern time on joined here on set she moved Arenas with me she's former president of women's media center.
And a Fox News contributor and her Robert shocked Bob is here is a former prosecutor and defense attorney.
So about two hours and sixteen minutes in total -- runs.
Present his closing arguments to the jury there.
And I don't know tell me what stands out in terms of his argument to you Bob.
And it was good.
I think it was great he really blow me away with what he had to say he did make.
A lot of valid points but I think at the end he kind of glossed over a lot of things he he had and I think a couple opportunities to reiterate.
That trade on Martin's DNA wasn't on the clothing of the gun and that his fingerprints weren't on the -- -- him he mentioned it early hobby that really hammered home.
I think jurors who want that kind of CSI evidence of the fact it's not there -- these tests were done there's a response from the defense of that.
But he could have just said.
These are very important parts that refute the testimony not just the inconsistencies he spent a lot of time on the Zimmerman inconsistencies.
Almost in tower the the entire hour five minutes of the second -- right -- -- all all inconsistencies the one thing I'll say.
Is it inconsistencies.
Happen all the time with witnesses there there's very rare as the witness is gonna come in and NB.
A 100% ways -- the first time hunter recently started a position -- were so -- to trial there's always going to be inconsistencies.
Evidence is evidence and -- defected from John good -- -- a prosecution witness.
Said that trade on -- was on top and tourism is on the bottom -- of the touch on it I got some that the defense is definitely gonna point out in my opinion tomorrow.
Yea your probably right on that have been -- evidence is evidence -- do you know -- -- mood.
Evidence is evidence but but.
Because there is such a lack of evidence in this case and you only have one person who can speak.
As to what happened that night -- do you believe that perhaps that is why -- run -- spent so much time.
Trying to highlight what he calls -- lying on the part of George Zimmerman.
I think a lot has been made well one I agree with Bob that he did seem to Peter out.
And an I was looking for that crescendo towards you know -- in the case today but.
He did seem to Peter out but I think a lot was made in two YE.
The prosecution allowed these you know tapes to come -- When that would just make it easier for Zimmerman not to take the stand.
And now I think we see that their strategy was to use these tapes to really -- -- and focus on the inconsistencies.
And you know I don't necessarily know that.
The six women on the jury.
Understand about like what usually happens in childhood and how -- inconsistencies.
They're looking to this was his testimony and I I do think the -- -- -- did a good job of a selling.
Well he lied here and he like he had and he lied here what.
Sadly I have -- -- -- -- to Bob when you say that the jury was looking for that kind of CSI moment at the end.
You know I mean that's kind of what we see on TV and -- your specs like clarity and better and more and more in today's day and -- with the jurors this -- what they're almost looking for -- waiting for it because and it and it's these they shouldn't be because not every case has.
All of these CSI scientific evidence for the fact that these tests were even gone and it came back -- trade on -- was -- on that I think I just would have hated more towards the end sure does feel like and I really kind of just.
-- lost a little bit aghast at the end but you know he did say hey.
You know we brought these videos to you we can't hide from them we brought to you because we wanted to see everything -- -- very good as a very good line and Arizona that we're not hiding from us and you know why because -- -- Getting quite it quite frankly -- move that was a lot of the discussion online and also see immediate social media comments that were out there.
How people were basically saying that the prosecution.
The team is.
Cutting idiotic for bringing up these would -- your own witnesses that's or does seem to go against severe arguments but that's how that's the Bob is saying how do -- -- Pointed -- we've been Monday morning quarterbacking this entire -- and and they didn't come with -- sticking to a strategy.
I assume that.
This was a part of their plan all along if he was gonna spend so much time today.
Showing those inconsistencies -- -- one of those videotapes and they probably knew he wasn't going to testify and and the tapes do show.
Think he said different things at different.
So let me let me get you guys agree with you wouldn't mind if it says you heard the judge station in the -- -- recess for today as you well know.
Other back tomorrow morning at 8:30.
AM eastern time of course will be here but gavel to gavel coverage at foxnews.com life so please join his.
To move -- at Robert -- we give you your final thoughts of the day.
That we want to leave -- you pictures that the mental picture he would have to paint before our -- I think that -- the prosecution has has set themselves up nicely for tomorrow it's just going to be how old -- response for the defense he is going to be up all night.
Just like we -- -- effort took a lot of notes.
Wrote reading things that he was doing the same thing and he's -- have to come in and make sure that he hits the points.
That that the prosecution hammered home and -- a response to it because if he doesn't have a response that could be the one thing and this is the highest of stakes game of legal poker someone's.
Life is on the line and with the sense that tourism to spend the rest his life in prison.
That's what he's going to be doing -- -- be sitting in his office tonight.
All -- probably I -- he gets any sleep.
Trying to -- to refute that like I said the tale of the tape the fact that Zimmer was armed and did did the stalking the following and all that test and all that argument.
He's got that answer for.
A lot has -- -- I think I will just repeat what we talked about earlier are now use your god given offense.
I -- that was a really powerful sentiment and as a miracle watches -- I think -- come away with that same understanding.
Didn't do -- thank you god given common sense.
I know I got exactly what he says in -- think UNG group.
Who will do what we say you up for down the line because you know there's going to be lots of -- and analysis coming out of this and I think you won millions part of some really good points and I'm -- -- everybody watching.
To just -- -- notice how this trial.
Has really highlighted there -- racial divide that and fortunately still exists in our great country.
Let's hope that somehow we can find a way to come together.
