imgrants -- every community. >> you are not welcome here. >> the national correspondent, there's a lot to talk about. >> yes. >> let's back up boy, let's back up to the democrats first, so hillary clinton is she being sarcastic. >> i don't think she is being sarcastic, i think she is highlight the extent to which bernie sanders is comfortable saying the same something about her, and it should be clear that hillary clinton is a world better than donald trump if you are starting out from a bernie sanders position, but she is highlighting that and this goes back to her point she is not sure if he is really a democrat. if you immediately say i am not sure you are a dome, part
of the campaign is that i am not really a dome, but now what is happening is we moved to close primaries the major north eastern state pesylvania, new york, delaware, maryland we all have closed, so only domes are voting and that's why you can see here pushing on this theme, party unity, the domic party more than in the open primary states why did he -- why that choice of words from bernie sanders. >> in regards to qualifies? it was a poor choice. if you read the longer quote, he is basically hitting her on the points he has been for months and that's fine. that's what campaigns are about, she is too close to corporate america, she doesn't fight hard enough, all of that is fair game, and if she said therefore she is not right for america, therefore she is not right for our party, therefore she is not right for us, but when you use the word qualifies first of all, it is absurd to suggest that she isn't qualified, but the last. >> that's pretty much every
job. >> right. >> the last 44 men have been much more qualified but it at does ring deliberately or not, it sounds kind of sexist. many in the workplace know you have to be more qualified she is more qualified than anybody many the race, to to say she is not qualified it makes the discussion the use of the word qualified if you are bernie sanders you want to campaign that is about economic justice, you don't want to be debate hog is most qualified because the other candidates in this race will look back to hillary clinton. >> apparently they are now hiring experience operative, what does it say they have gotten this far without experience operatives what does that mean? >> well, not too many people are experienced in this field because the last republican convention or ever any convention, where this really -- to figure out what happens when we go to cleveland when gerald ford
was nominated ahead of ronald reagan, and made a close run, so there isn't a lot of people, then you are 60, then you were 40 and you are 80 now, but this is a difficult thing that has very much to do within the weeds understanding rules and getting up there and attacking. bring people in h to really understand how parties work, now there are people that have experience on the state level, and both he and ted cruz and whoever else thinks they have a shot are going to need people like that, so this came down to a few members of this california delegation, how they will vote, a dozen members of the new york delegation, so you need that. >> how does ted cruz campaign when he has said so many not nice things about new york? >> well, bear in mind this is a republican primary, if he were to win the nomination, and either bernie sanders and hillary clinton were to be the democratic, or any democrat, they would be 2-1 in this state, and probably
4-1 in the city. we are tackling aability a small state, who frankly agrees with ted cruz on a lot of things need are people, new york values is code for a number of things, being pro-choice, for being tolerant. >> liberal, and also for ever jewish, and we should be frank about that, because no one has called ted cruz out on that, when you say new york values you mean use jew. cold stop. it is a dog whistle, so now there are some jewish republicans i don't think there's a big -- new york state there's not a lot of anti-semimettic republicans so we will leave that aside, but they are not pro choice, they are not prolgbt rights they happen to be new york republicans and when you go upstate, new york values is red as new york city value, so it doesn't offend. so i don't think this will hurt him too much. i think what will hurt him is that donald trump is from new york, has a lot of ties and a style that will fly here in new york state. >> yeah, it does.
