'Racial animus' towards Holder and Obama?

First, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is firing back at Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, in an escalation of a war of words between two potential 2016 Republican presidential contenders over U.S. foreign policy and the country's role in the bloody outbreak of fighting in Iraq. What do you make of this infighting?

Then, Attorney General Eric Holder says he sees "racial animus" in strident Republican opposition to some Obama administration policies. Some media conservatives say he's playing racial politics.

Texas Governor vs. President Obama on immigration

Texas Gov. Rick Perry and others are lashing out at President Barack Obama's decision not to tour border facilities overwhelmed by a flood of undocumented children, saying the U.S. leader needs to see with his own eyes what both sides agree is a humanitarian crisis.

"The American people expect to see their President when there is a disaster," Perry told CNN's Kate Bolduan in an interview that aired Thursday, citing Obama's trip to the East Coast to tour damage caused by Superstorm Sandy in 2012. "He showed up at Sandy. Why not Texas?"

At 6:30pm ET, S.E. Cupp and guest host Paul Begala host a debate with Reps. Karen Bass (D-CA) and Bill Flores (R-TX).

Clinton defends paid speeches

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended the fact she's reportedly made $5 million in speaking fees since leaving the State Department in early 2013 by arguing that her family "came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt."

Pressed by ABC's Diane Sawyer in a clip of an interview that will air in full on Monday night, Clinton added that her family had "no money" when they left the White House more than a dozen years ago and "struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea's education." Full story

At 6:30pm ET, S.E. Cupp and guest host Paul Begala are joined by Tracy Sefl of Ready for Hillary and Tim Miller, who is the co-author of "Failed Choices," a response to Hillary's new book.
