tv   With All Due Respect  Bloomberg  August 21, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm EDT

11:00 am
♪ mark: welcome to this edition of "best of with all due respect." if taylor swift songs were narrating the republican nominee's campaign, "i knew you were trouble" and "bad blood" would be on the list. however, the lyricist was off by one preposition, donald trump decided to shake it up with his campaign team. donald trump has shaken up and expanded his senior staff with three months left until election day. overnight, the republican nominee added 2 names. one name is familiar to viewers and pretty much every tv news watcher across the fruited plain. that is longtime republican pollster and strategist and trump advisor, kellyanne conway. she has been promoted to campaign manager. here is what kellyanne conway had to say about the move.
11:01 am
kellyanne: and it is a busy home stretch. we need to beef up the senior level roles in a way that we are dividing and conquering. what he doesn't like his people telling him exactly what to say, that is hillary clinton's game. what does the focus group say, who should i be, what should i believe, how do i say it? i picture her in brooklyn saying "i know the country doesn't like me or trust me, i never want to hear it again, how do we win?" that is not our dilemma. the fact is, with donald trump he is his own best messenger. people see him as very authentic. mark: that is the campaign manager kellyanne conway, newly minted, and she is being joined by a guy named steven bannon. he has had more gigs than an avett brothers summer tour. a goldman sachs banker, hollywood banker, navy officer,
11:02 am
and, until recently, the head of the conservative news website breitbart. he is becoming the trump campaign ceo. meanwhile, paul manafort, the campaign chairman who replaced the campaign manager a few months ago, will stay on his current position. the campaign manager he ousted was corey lewandowski. so, what does cnn analyst corey lewandowski think of these latest developments? corey: a candidate that wants to win, this is a clear indication. if you look at steven bannon and breitbart, it is win at all costs. it is very important that kellyanne is with him as much as possible. kellyanne conway is great with message development. she had a successful polling company and brings calm to donald trump. her being on the plan is what has been lacking, which has been senior leadership, for two months. mark: kellyanne conway and
11:03 am
steven bannon join paul manafort. why is trump making the changes, and what does it mean? donny: he is making them because he is losing. the definition of insanity is continuing the same behavior and expecting a different outcome. he has found his ultimate match. he wants to go back to where he started, the outsider, the flamethrower. he has had to post primary nudge with the republican party. i have to play and pivot. you can see he is not comfortable, it isn't working, and he is doubling down. we will talk more about bannon, throw flames, us versus the establishment, us versus you. he is doubling down on trump being trump. mark: i do not know what bannon will be doing. paul manafort is not for a establishment message. he is more for a message of change, fundamental change, revolutionary change. kellyanne conway, while she supports the change message, is
11:04 am
someone who is part of the republican establishment. she has worked for the republican national committee, she knows leading members of congress. i do not know how much this marginalizes manafort. he is still the chairman. everyone i've talked to says he has a huge role in the campaign. while the press wants to turn it into a shakeup, they are understaffed. they have two senior people trying to deal with decisions. if kellyanne conway gets on the airplane, goes to events, keeps him focused, i do not care what the downside is. that improves his chances of winning. donny: it is a good move. they both have the same tone as trump. we talked yesterday when we were showing a clip of donald trump giving a speech. i said look how uncomfortable he looks. these are his people. he is backed into a corner now. kellyanne knows how to pivot in a second. she is tough. she is aggressive. i disagree with everything that bannon stands for, but he is an animal. mark: trump wanted to people around him that could make sense
11:05 am
to him. he trusts their judgment. he has known kellyanne conway longer that he has known bannon. he is taking a little bit of a risk by bringing in someone he knows, but not at the fingertip level of whatever he says goes. he trusts kellyanne conway. she has not been on any winning presidential campaigns, but she has worked in politics. she understands the trump product. donny: what scares me is that a possible future commander-in-chief where kellyanne even said he needs a person next to him on the plane. this is the president. i want to know if that person calls in sick, the wheels will not go off. i do not think barack obama or bush needed someone by their side. mark: bill clinton ran an antiestablishment campaign in 1992, yet democrats were loyal
11:06 am
because he said this guy can win and has a message about change we believe in. this team could help trump do that. i'm not saying it will change the race, but he gives him to people that he has confidence in. donny: and who he, temperament-wise, likes. hours before the world fond out -- found out about donald trump's non-pivot pivot, he gave a speech in wisconsin where he took sharp aim at the republican elite and embraced the outsider credentials that got him this far. mr. trump: i am not part of the corrupt system. the corrupt system is trying to stop me. the leadership class in washington, d.c., of which hillary clinton has been a member for 30 years, has abandoned the people of this country. when we talk about the insider, who are we talking about? the comfortable politicians looking out for their own interests, the lobbyists that know how to insert the perfect
11:07 am
loophole into every single bill and get richer and richer and richer at your expense. the insiders also include the media executives, anchors, and journalists in washington, los angeles, and new york city who are part of the same failed status quo and what nothing to -- and want nothing to change. they do not want it to change. the media-donor political complex that has bled the country dry must be replaced with a new government of, by, and for the people. donny: let's assume that kellyanne is on the plane every day, can she keep him on message? mark: it is unfortunate that donald trump made these changes the same news cycle of that speech. we both think that that is the best speech in terms of a campaign that can win. i do not want people to misinterpret my words that he is a frontrunner, but that is the message democrats have been worried that trump would get onto. about change, and one thing in -- and lumping in all the big
11:08 am
establishment forces in the country and saying, if you're happy, vote for hillary clinton. if you do not like big media, government, or business, vote for me. donny: psychology. hypocrisy. the effectiveness or not. the psychology. what he is doing is repackaging the muslim ban and the wall to a more socially acceptable thing. simply, you find hopefully a large enough group of people that are not happy with life. instead of blaming a muslim or an immigrant, you are blaming, here is the group, politicians, media, hedge funds, wall street, the city of new york, los angeles, and beyonce. that is your problem.
11:09 am
the hypocrisy is that today the front page of the new york times is a story about donald trump, billionaire, as he was taking shareholder money and he was taking out money, he got a $25 million tax deal with chris christie. lumped in a new yorker, a billionaire, working with wall street, and a politician. he is the epicenter of everything he is working against. mark: you had republicans make that case. you are right. the clinton-people will turn on a dime. if he gets traction saying that he is the outsider, they will say, you have lobbyists in washington and special sweetheart deals. you're the poster boy for government using your money and leverage to get benefits from government. he will have to fight back against that. donny: i think it is too transparent. i think the swing people, the suburban characters of
11:10 am
philadelphia and washington dc, the women will not bite on that. it is doubling down on the people that are already there. mark: at a minimum, he may consolidate the republican base and he might get some democrats. another interesting nugget from bannon's past is he had the royalties from a little show called "seinfeld." obviously, we jumped at the chance to combine "seinfeld" and the presidential campaign. two of the pillars of our lives. our team dove into the archives to find clips that help us answer the question , who is steven bannon? >> if you want to get inside the mind of steven bannon take a tour through breitbart.com. it is aggressive, heated, and often very paranoid. >> it is not a lie, if you
11:11 am
believe it. >> breitbart often peddles conspiracy theories. >> i am saying that the spit could not have come from behind. there had to be a second spitter. >> he is the ceo. he has run several successful companies in the past. >> what does he do? >> he is an importer. >> just imports, no exports? >> he is an importer/exporter, ok? >> he has no experience running a campaign. how did he get this job? >> we will find out what bannon brings to the party. >> here is your cake. see you. mark: when we come back, 2 reporters following the ins,

♪ >> i understand where you come from, pretty much. you are impossible to totally figure, i must say that to your listeners. anyone who thinks where you totally come from, they are making a mistake. mark: that was donald trump speaking with steve bannon in may. trump staffers come and go, but this nbc news correspondent is forever. she is often at trump tower. now the national correspondent for business week, josh green, whose cover story ran in october of 2015 calling steve bannon the most dangerous political
11:16 am
operatives. the trump campaign has been touting that. let's go quick. katy, you got a piece up on the site with some of your colleagues. trump often says he makes decisions with his head, and with his gut and instinct. is this decision to bring in these 2 new people something that you think was rational and thoughtful, or more gut instinct? katy: i want to say that this is more of a gut decision from donald trump. if you look at the polling, he is down. he has not been comfortable with paul manafort, he has not been comfortable trying to pivot and run a more traditional campaign. sources within the campaign keep telling us that he has been deeply unhappy now for some time. now, he is realizing, in their words, that trusting his gut, embracing his own instincts is the right way to go. they feel very strongly, and trump feels very strongly, that the way that he ran during the
11:17 am
primaries, beating out the 16 candidates was the way, the right way, to go. trusting his gut, going out there, shooting from the hip, making headlines, and refusing to apologize. in the past couple of months since corey lewandowski left and paul manafort took on more power, they tried to traditionalize and professionalize the campaign. you have seen donald trump chafe at that. trying to be conciliatory with the republican party. he had to read from notes the other day, remember, when he was forced to endorse paul ryan and john mccain and kelly ayotte. that did not seem like a comfortable moment for him. now bringing on kellyanne conway, who has been a longtime friend and advisor, even helped on a potential run, or looking into a potential run, for governor of new york. bannon, who is very antiestablishment, bringing those two on is an indication that donald trump will be going back to doing it his way, and not listening to anyone telling him to change. mark: josh, everyone should read your piece on steven bannon. it is great insight . people think of him as breitbart. it is provocative, and sometimes more than that. he has been very consistent getting his earpiece clear and taking opposition research and getting it into the mainstream. talk about bannon as a a
11:18 am
strategist who understands the media and political ecosystem. josh: he is interesting. bannon has a diagnosis as to why conservatives failed to stop bill clinton in the 1990's. it is that they went too far, that they jumped over the cliff pursuing rumors about vince foster's murder. the mainstream media and voters tuned them out. bannon's view is that hillary clinton is attackable, but only if you focus on things that matter. bannon is the head of the nonprofit that put out the clinton cashbook detailing the financial transactions between various foreign entities and the clinton foundation, which was a front-page new york times story. what you saw was the strategy play out where bannon understands if you can dig up
11:19 am
real facts about clinton that will drive down honesty and trustworthiness numbers, and you present those to investigative reporters, if there is news they will publish it in the mainstream media. donny: your piece was great. you compared bannon to lenny riefenstahl. josh: not me. no i didn't. andrew breitbart said that steven bannon was the lenny riefenstahl of the tea party movement. he was a filmmaker who did a documentary on sarah palin. mark: we will be back after these words from our sponsors. ♪

♪ mark: we're back here with tim miller, the cofounder of the super pac america rising. and an avowed anti-trumper, one of the leading anti-trumpers i feel comfortable saying. before we were coming on the air, we will working on research and we wasn't able to finish. i hope you can help us. those buying for your super pac say you are scaling back in three states. virginia, where you already
11:24 am
scaled back, colorado, and pennsylvania. three states where hillary clinton is ahead. is it true you are scaling back buying in those states? guy: we are. as you know, we are always making assessments if we are spending money efficiently. as of right now, we are reducing our spending in those states. mark: you are reducing because you think her lead is big enough you do not need to be on the air? guy: that is correct. we are constantly assessing where we are. we take this on a week-by-week basis. we not taking anything for granted. we know that virginia, colorado, and pennsylvania has been relatively close elections over the last cycles, but for now we will look at other opportunities to expand the map and reach out to new voters through voter registration and on the ground efforts in key states.
11:25 am
mark: my understanding is this reduction going off the air, that goes through september 20. that is a couple of weeks. are you banking that money and saving it, or moving it to other states? guy: we are moving it to other states, and also other activities. one thing that we have been doing is we have been doing is we're not only focusing on persuadeable swing voters in the suburbs. we think it is critical to use this opportunity to increase registration and turnout among constituencies like hispanics, african-americans, younger voters, unmarried women. we will look at opportunities in places like florida and ohio to begin doing work on the ground with registration and turnout. it will be a combination. we do not expect making any changes to the current map before labor day. tim: this is a wake-up call to the republican party. despite thinking donald trump can win new york, the presidential race is over. hillary clinton plus guy's super pac has 50 millions on the air in new york to bring out voters.
11:26 am
we have a competitive senate race in north carolina, donald trump has nada on tv in north carolina. it is critical the republican groups focus efforts on going to states like north carolina, trying to save people like richard burr, so we can check hillary clinton. donny: you see such a flawed candidate at this point. what would you do over? tim: i think the republican electorate, it was not the right year for a candidate like jeb. if you look at jeb, marco, kasich, having an optimistic vision for the future, they got one third of the vote, less than one third of the vote. it was not like if we had had one zinger it would have been different, the party was not in a place for it this year.
11:27 am
i think if ted cruz was the nominee, that is why when jeb dropped out i immediately began working for an anti-trump pac, they would at least have to have ads in colorado and virginia. right now, we need to stave off a landslide. mark: tim says the presidential race is over, do you agree? guy: no. we are still in august. tim: you are not in the air in virginia. you can agree with that. the race is over if you are not on the air in virginia. guy: i do not think that is true. we have to stay focused in places like florida and ohio, new hampshire. not only because we have the presidential race, which will be determinative if way win or lose the presidency, but because of critical senate states around
11:28 am
the country. it is important that hillary clinton is inaugurated and she has a senate with the same values as we, democrats, independents, and fair-minded republicans. we will stay focused on the prize all the way through the election. mark: can you imagine a scenario where republicans divert money away from the top of the ticket that you would spend money on senate races? guy: we are constantly looking at the options. it isn't something we would rule out. our focus is on making hillary clinton will win in as many places among as many people as possible. it will benefit hillary and democrats up and down the ticket. donny: there are many bernie supporters that are getting squeamish as she edges to the center. there was an article comparing her to mitt romney. do you think any of those people will complain if she moves too further to the center? guy: i would disagree that she
11:29 am
has moved since the primaries. she is talking about raising wages, creating jobs, supporting the lgbt community, and aggressive diplomatic foreign-policy. i think that is a misread. it is a misread of what she has been talking about. it is incumbent on every hillary clinton supporter to reach out to bernie sanders supporters. most of which we are getting. we were at 85% to 90%. we want to let every bernie sanders supporter know that the things we care about together will only be achieved -- will not be achieved with a vote for donald trump, jill stein, or sitting out the election, but supporting hillary clinton in november. mark: we have talked about the prospect of shifting resources from the top of the ticket. who could make that happen? mitch mcconnell, paul ryan?
11:30 am
tim: it has to be a group effort. part comes from donor requests focusing on money to the in rcc, which is happening. reince working with mcconnell, ryan, they need to make that call. you can do it without a big with the nr cc need to make that call. pokean do it without a big your finger in trump's i. you can do that by shifting the turnout resources in states like ohio, north carolina, already competitive states. i think there is a legitimate concern about republicans, suburban republicans, not voting in presidential states with senate races also. colorado, for example. mark: u.n. jeb bush, you worked on a broad array of trump traits
11:31 am
that you thought were problems in winning the general election. in what ways has he been worse as a general election candidate? tim: he has been exactly the general election candidate i thought he would be. we said all last year -- before christmas, we put out a web video from jeb's campaign that said nominating donald would mean hillary clinton's inauguration. had a fake hillary clinton inauguration video. as far as trump, i predicted in april, he can lose south carolina, utah, missouri, arizona. i think those are the tossup states. when guy talks about expanding the party, you'll have him on in a month, and i will talk about arizona. donny: my partner called me a "manhattan fantasizer," because i said donald trump will not allow himself to be josh mcgovern. there is a store to be written here. : here is where i agree with you. i would not be surprised to see him quit the campaign for a couple of days. it is hard. i am not saying he jobs out of their race or something, but
11:32 am
look. 85 days, waking up every morning -- i did this with jeb -- where the numbers are looking worse and worse. it is tough. guys like jeb can put on a happy face and run an honest campaign. that is not donald trump. he will act out. mark: all right. tim miller, guy cecil, thank you both. happy to have you on, always. stay tuned. more of "best of with all due respect" after this. ♪

mark: time to talk a little "ye old stratergy." we're joined by john burnett, an adviser to the new york republican party. also here, michael feldman, a democratic strategist, the
11:36 am
former senior adviser and traveling chief of staff to vice president al gore. just a little housekeeping. you are for hillary clinton. who are you for? john: the republican party. mark: are you voting for donald trump? john: absolutely. mark: he is from new york. john: absolutely. definitely. mark: we want to do a little strategy swap. trump campaign manager kellyanne conway acknowledges that the y are behind. if you are giving advice to donald trump, what would you tell them? the building blocks of a comeback? michael: discipline has been said often, but it cannot be said enough. if mr. trump can focus on key clinton and not do the campaign's job for them -- donny: which 2 messages? michael: this is not a specific message, but a broader strategy. he needs to restore his credibility as an acceptable alternative in a change election year. donny: how can he do that?
11:37 am
michael: it is complicated. he has worked hard, not intentionally, but he has disqualified himself among strands of the general electorate. he needs to wind that back. i thought the roundtable, the optics on national security made sense. giving policy speeches and sticking to the message. teleprompter or not, it is important he can show he can be a leader and president. if he doesn't get that, all the negative attacks and tough ads, he does not have enough of the electorate to win. mark: what should they be doing for hillary clinton? john: i would say ditto. when you look at hillary clinton, she has been dodging the press for a little under a year now. feed into the growing sentiment that she is not trustworthy. that she is hiding something. mark: john, if she were your client, and she said "john, i hate press conferences. i am up 10 points." you would say do press conferences? john: at least do one or two. right? mark: they argue that she --
11:38 am
john: the staged one on fox -- donny: you're in this business. you know every day is about trump on the news, she wins. john: she has to hedge. donny: it is the right strategy. if i was the manager of the campaign, i would keep her under wraps as much as possible and make every day about trump. john: but you know how things can change very quickly. so she does not actually do something that is sort of goodwill. put goodwill and escrow, if you will, by at least doing one press conference before the debates, and generally see how the debates go -- mark: maybe on an august friday. john: there you go. bury it, right? mark: there are some people who make the case to get it done. john: friday or saturday afternoon. mark: i would say one thing -- michael: i think it is true of
11:39 am
both candidates. i would spend an extra hour a day on debate prep. the debates are going to be the last real impact moment with the national audience, a chance to change the dynamic of the race. if i secretary clinton, i'm am making sure i'm ready for any haymaker. if i am mr. trump, i'm studying up. donny: let me reference this brilliant man's book. we all know that donald trump -- there are so many questions you can ask him. is crappy at answering. i'm not saying "tell me the year that croatia is liberated," i am talking basic 101. tell me the difference between the sunni and the shiite. how do you do that? michael: well, he is not going to be able to compete on policy. very few can. i do not know many staff people that can keep up with secretary clinton on the details of public policy, but he has to deliver a message. i would pick two or three key messages that i would try to draw a contrast on her, and make sure whatever the question is i , am delivering that.
11:40 am
donny: a 90 minute debate -- john: he did a great job through all of the republican debates. pulling everybody to what he wanted to focus on. he needs to do the same thing. mark: it is harder one-on-one. john: it is harder one-on-one. actually, there might be three people in the race. maybe. you never know. mark: the two vice presidential candidates are in, i think, as good of shape as any i've seen. both clinton and trump are happy with their picks. they have worked out as well or better than they thought. they are doing lots of events, not shackled. do you see them as canceling each other out? is one of them topping the top of the ticket more at this point? michael: no. they are serving different roles. i think both of them made good picks for different reasons. both of them have one eye on potentially the future and the next cycle. so, the calculation for both of them is different. i would say for senator kaine,
11:41 am
in particular, his ability to support her, to deliver a message that is complementary to hers has been crucially important. for governor pence, it has been reassurance to some of the audiences that want to make sure that there is going to be an adult in charge, or someone around to help guide the ship of state, if they are elected. very different things. john: that is a strong conservative. that speaks to the base of the republican party and those that are far right, especially those in the ben carson, the ted cruz camp to make sure that we have a conservative in the white house. those that are still questioning if whether trump is more to the middle or more to the right. mark: or to the all right. john: i think as we move along in the election process, trump is proving himself to have more right-leaning views. donny: this is the first time
11:42 am
two candidates coming in have 100% brand awareness. neither of these guys can make a difference. they are doing a good job, but -- mark: i think the way these guys have talked about it is right. they're helping in big ways, as much as you can at the bottom of the ticket. they are getting great local coverage, which is great because you can only be in one state at a time. are your candidates, who are in the ballot in new york this year worried about the chance of a , blowout at the top of the ticket? john: if you look at the primary, we had a lot of people come out. a lot of people were excited. trump won every county except for his own. so the energy is very high. we do not really expect to win much in new york city, given the numbers -- i think it is a seven to one ratio. but when you look at new york state, it is two and a half or three to one. we are in a good position. mark: are you going to have a strong candidate for mayor of new york next year?
11:43 am
john: yes, and governor. mark: who will it be? john: one race at a time. mark: the prospect was raised of a blowout for hillary clinton. are you hearing democrats more say don't take anything for granted, or are people thinking about long coattails? michael: i hear both. mark: you know a lot of people. michael: i do know a lot of people. the reality is there are two conversations. justifiably, people are concerned about turnout. they want to make sure people stay focused until the end of the race. make sure people do not become complacent. that will matter. you hear talk about the expanding map. when we hear states like arizona, georgia, and missouri, and we have not seen that in a long time -- we have not seen that in a very long time. so i do think that people are looking at the map and the numbers in a different way. michael feldman, john burnett thank you gentlemen, , both. coming up, we pay tribute to and discuss the impact of tv legend
