civility, they did have their moments. this is a tradition where both candidates have a little bit of fun. take a look. >> we have proven we can actually be civil to each other. in fact, just before taking the dais, hillary accidentally bumped into me and she very civilly said pardon me [ laughter ] >> and i very politely replied, let me talk to you about that after i get into office. >> people look at the statue of liberty and they see a proud symbol of our history as a nation of immigrants, a beacon of hope for people around the
world. donald looks at the statue of liberty and sees a four. maybe a five if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair. >> michelle obama gives a speech and everyone loves it. it's fantastic. they think she's absolutely great. my wife, melania, gives the exact same speech. and people get on her case. and i don't get it. i don't know why. and it wasn't her fault. stand up, melania, come on. she took a lot of abuse. >> this is such a special event that i took a break from my
rigorous nap schedule to be here. and as you already heard, it's a treat for all of you too because usually i charge a lot for speeches like this. so tonight let's embrace the spirit of the evening. let's come together. remember what unites us and just rip on ted cruz. >> despite a growing course of criticism from both parties, donald trump continues to leave his options open when it comes to accepting the final election vote. listen here as he plays to supporters at a rally in ohio. >> i will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election if i win. >> michelle obama in phoenix taking donald trump to task.
in traditionally hostile territory for democrats. the first lady visiting arizona, the red state for the last 20 years. democrats are hoping for the first time in years to flip the state on november 8th. she casts trump as a threat to america. she called him a candidate with a vision devoid of hope. here is kyung lah. >> reporter: the first lady entered the battleground state of arizona. she blasted trump saying he demeans women and he is a thrhe threat. >> when a candidate threatens to ignore our voices and reject the outcome of this election. he is threatening the very idea of america itself. and we cannot stand for that. you do not keep american
democracy in suspense. because too many people have marched and protested and fought and died for this democracy. >> reporter: the first lady is the third democratic heavyweight to swing through arizona this week. republicans say they are not worried. in 64 years, the state of arizona has voted for a democratic president once. george, christine. >> kyung lah, thank you. republicans are calling out trump too. in north carolina, the executive director of the gop is slamming the nominee. dallas woodhouse saying we are not aware of election results being optional. a lot to talk about this morning when it comes to politics. let's bring in our political reporter tal kopan from
washington. >> happy friday. >> let's talk about that al smith dinner. it is supposed to be funny. this is always a lighthearted moment. at this particular point in the campaigns. it wasn't really that funny for a lot of people there. some of the jokes were awkward. you felt for some of the people in the room sitting through this. i want you to listen to first donald trump and hillary clinton and some of their best moments. there were boos as well. listen. >> hillary believes it's vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private. that's okay. i don't know who they are angry at, hillary, you or i. the belief that hillary's believe it takes a village.
which after all, places in haiti where she has taken a number of them. thank you. >> i am so flattered that donald thought i use some sort of performance enhancer. now actually i did. it's called preparation. it is great also to see mayor bloomberg here. it's a shame he's not speaking tonight. i'm curious to hear what a billionaire has to say. >> but tal, there were a lot of boos in the audience. this was the crowd that certainly hillary clinton's crowd here in new york city. it just seemed the timing for both of the candidates, the
comedic timing wasn't there. you could sense the animosity in the jokes they had. >> yeah. i think it is a reflection of the fodder they have. gone are the now in the rear-view mirror civil presidential elections we had in the past where it was mostly policy disputes. this has been a rankerous election. when you are trying to make jokes about the current political climate. if the climate feels toxic to a lot of the voters and to some of us, you know, the jokes will be a little bit less lighthearted. certainly, this is hard. presidents have to do this a bit. the white house correspondents dinner. they have joke writers. some of the timing may have been off. >> it is the atmosphere. this is just a different kind of election where normally you can roast and it can go away.
you could see people in that group who were not even smiling at all or not listening at all. it is interesting. al smith was a four-time democratic governor of new york. he ran for president in 1928. he was going around the country and crowds did not warm up to him. he sounded like a new yorker. now we have a new yorker who is running for president and at the al smith dinner. a little bit of irony. we had the obamas on the campaign trial. one in florida yesterday. really loose and at ease. working extra crowd pushing for hillary clinton. then you had michelle obama in phoenix and again, really a stellsto stellar performance. the first couple strongly out for the candidate. >> when a presidential candidate threatens to ignore our voices
and reject the outcome of this election, he is threatening the very idea of america itself. >> that is dangerous. because when you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people's minds about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy. >> i think, tal, you can see where these two are going. where the campaign is the most hopeful to flip or to influence. these are important days ahead. >> absolutely. you know, we talked about how impressive the bench of surrogates the democratic party has to deploy on the trail. the president and first lady and former president bill clinton and relatively popular vice president. all individuals enjoy good favor ability ratings. you have bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. if you are running for president, you want that bench to have to send out to the swing
states to saturate the field. it is interesting how michelle obama and barack obama are not just appearances, they are tightening up the appeals. michelle is emotional and barack is lighthearted and mockery. >> it seemed to be branching out to states like arizona and texas and georgia. all possibly in play. tal, thank you. >> come back in a few minutes. jeff bezos speaking out against donald trump. he own "the washington post." he says trump brand is hurting democracy. when you look at the pattern of things, he is not just going after the media and threatening retribution. it is him saying he may not give a graceful concession speech. that erodes our democracy around the edges. these are not acceptable behaviors. he is taking aim at trump
supporter peter thiel. he says he is a contrarian. you have mark zuckerberg weighing in with a memo to employees. thiel is on facebook's board of directors. a lot of people in silicon valley asking mark zuckerberg and others. you have thiel on your board. most people don't endorse trump. square that. you have mark zuckerberg weighing in. also following the battle for mosul. an american soldier killed on the frontlines and iraqi forces facing fierce opposition from isis. the live report from iraq is ahead next on "early start." americans are buying more and more of everything online.

donald trump and hillary clinton sharing the same stage at a dinner benefitting catholic charities. supposed to be a good nature roast. but like everything else in the race, it got awkward. and american soldier killed by a roadside bomb. the first casualty in the road to retake mosul. welcome to "early start." i'm george howell. >> it is friday. nice to see you. 31 minutes past the hour.
so much for tradition in the down and dirty presidential election. donald trump's appearance at last night's al smith charity dinner was so incendiary, he actually got booed. the al smith dinner was a good nature roast and break from the ugliness of the campaign trail. it benefits catholic charities. white tie. all kinds of famous new yorkers. apparently trump didn't get the memo. >> here she is tonight in public pretending not to hate catholics. >> hillary clinton, well, she didn't hold back either. she heard a few jeers too. 18 days before the election, it appears the race is still here stuck in the mud. we get more from cnn's jim acosta. >> reporter: christine and george, another reminder of how vicious the campaign season has
become. a dinner where the candidates deliver lighthearted remarks and self deprecating jokes. donald trump and hillary clinton went after each other drawing groans and boos from the audience. >> hillary is so corrupt. she got kicked off the watergate commission. how corrupt do you have to be to get kicked off the watergate commission? >> but donald really is as healthy as a horse. you know, the one vladimir putin rides around on. >> reporter: but there was a remarkable moment at the end of the speeches where hillary clinton and donald trump shook hands. something they could not do at the last debate. christine and george. >> thank you, jim. despite the awkwardness and lack of civility through biting attacks, the candidates did have a few moments at the al smith dinner.
take a look at some of the highlights. >> we have proven we can actually be civil to each other. in fact, just before taking the dais, hillary accidentally bumped into me and she very civilly said, pardon me. [ laughter ] >> and i very politely replied, let me talk to you about that after i get into office. >> people look at the statue of liberty and they see a proud symbol of our history as a nation of immigrants, a beacon of hope for people around the world. donald looks at the statue of liberty and sees a four.
maybe a five if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair. >> michelle obama gives a speech and everyone loves it. it's fantastic. they think she's absolutely great. my wife, melania, gives the exact same speech [ laughter ] >> and people get on her case. and i don't get it. i don't know why. and it wasn't her fault. stand up, melania, come on. she took a lot of abuse. >> this is such a special event that i took a break from my rigorous nap schedule to be here. and as you already heard, it's a
treat for all of you, too, because usually i charge a lot for speeches like this. so tonight, let's embrace the spirit of the evening. let's come together. remember what unites us and just rip on ted cruz. >> to be fair, some of the jokes were funny and they laughed at them. you know, some were cringe worthy. despite the criticism, trump is leaving his options open in accepting the final election vote. listen to what he said to supporters at a rally in ohio. >> i will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election if i win. >> donald trump being funny there with his supporters. a lot of people not so happy about what he is saying.
michelle obama taking donald trump to task in what is not traditional territory for democrats. the first lady in the state of arizona. on thursday, a red state for the last 20 years, the democrats are now hoping to turn blue come november 8th. she described donald trump as a threat to america and a candidate with a vision that is devoid of hope. cnn's kyung lah reports. >> reporter: george and christine, the first lady entered republican territory. the battleground state of arizona. she blasted donald trump saying he demeans women and he is a threat to democracy. >> the voters decide who wins and loses. period. end of story. when a presidential candidate threatens to ignore our voices and reject the outcome of the election, he is threatening the very idea of america itself. and we cannot stand for that.
you do not keep american democracy in suspense. because, look, too many people have marched and protested and fought and died for this democracy. >> reporter: the first lady is the third democratic heavyweight to swing through arizona this week. she is preceded by bernie sanders and chelsea clinton. republicans here say they are not worried. in 64 years, the state of arizona has voted for a democratic president just once. george, christine. >> thank you, kyung lah. the president campaigning if south florida. he condemned marco rubio for backing trump. >> that is not a joking matter. no, no, no. i want everybody to pay attention. that is dangerous because when you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people's minds about the legitimacy of our elections,
that undermines our democracy. then you are doing the work of our adversaries for them. >> republicans are also calling out donald trump in the state of north carolina. the executive director of the gop is slamming his own nominee for refuses to say he will accept the final outcome of the election. dallas woodhouse tells cnn, quote, we at the north carolina republican party are not aware of election results being optional. >> i want to bring in political reporter tal kopan on this friday morning. let's talk about the al smith dinner. we played a bunch of sound from that. there were moments that were funny, but mostly it highlighted how icky this whole campaign season has been. you have cardinal timothy dolan between the candidates. he criticized donald trump for what he called a reversion to nativism and he is unhappy about
the hacked wikileaks e-mails and the way the campaign was talking about catholics. >> i wrote something. i was reporting in missouri a few weeks ago. i was talking to voters there. i was struck by the fact that no one is really enjoying themselves at this point in the race. i think that is what last night was a reflection of. it is just not really fun at this point in the game. it is very personal and down in the mud. it is very acrimonious. normally you have a lot of fun, political fodder for these events. the candidates have to work with what they're given. this is a pretty nasty election. some of the jokes landed pretty nasty. certainly there are knocks on both sides. that's why you saw that being ripe material for the candidates. i'm not sure at this point they can shut off their brain that is saying go after each other. >> i'm not sure it is the jokes or the delivery.
>> let's talk about speaker paul ryan. a good cnn political article on cnn.com that talks about bart meadows. he is with the house freedom caucus. one of the 30 members of the caucus. he said the effort to remove the speaker is picking up steam mainly because of people calling into the office in north carolina. and also because of some gop lawmakers who are furious at the fact that the speaker is not adamantly supporting donald trump. a lot of pressure. >> absolutely. remember, paul ryan didn't exactly run for speaker. when boehner stepped down, there were other candidates and the freedom caucus, the group of 30 to 40 members, who have sort of stood as a group and pushed their party's leadership and 200 other members of the party in the house in the direction they want them to go. they stood up to the nominees and paul ryan came in as a
savior. he would only step in if his vote would be a lock and named the speaker. he didn't want to campaign that hard for it. it is not surprising to see the freedom caucus look once again to get some leverage over him. there is frustration with the way he has handled the donald trump issue. i think on both sides of his party's wings. once again, we see the members lobbying to get paul ryan to come in their direction. it will be really interesting to see after the election how he navigates this and whether he even sort of wants to deal with this mess again. >> tal, let's listen to the president in miami and the first lady in arizona yesterday. >> when a presidential candidate threatens to ignore our voices and reject the outcome of this election, he is threatening the very idea of america itself. >> that is dangerous because
when you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people's minds about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy. >> you know, listening to them yesterday, more than a few people said to me i wonder if the first lady will have a role or we hope the first lady has a role in public life after this election. it shows you what a valuable surrogate she has been for hillary clinton. >> absolutely. what a tag-team these two have been for hillary clinton. bringing down the house at the democratic national convention in a way -- she brought down the house. she campaigned in a way she has not shown herself able to do. for michelle obama, she has been smart with her political capital over the past eight years. only deploying it when absolutely necessary. she comes off very believable in that sense. the american public only sees her when she is making that type
of deep emotional appeal. the president and first lady said they will remain in public life and champion certain causes. we don't know what that will be. they will bring a lot of firepower to it when they do as they are in this campaign. >> tal, nice to see you this morning. have a great weekend. the trade debate on the campaign trail centers around manufacturing. both candidates wanted more things made in america. >> we are not going to let our companies be raided by other countries where we lose jobs and don't make our product anymore. it's very sad. >> we'll pull the country together and enforce trade agreements. that's why i will have a trade prosecutor for the first time in history. we will enforce those agreements and we will look for businesses to help us by buying american products. >> interesting disconnect. we are making more things in america, but not with as many people. 7.2 million.
that is how many manufacturing jobs disappeared since the manufacturing peaked in 1979. there has been a small comeback in recent years, but over the generations, a staggering drop. u.s. manufacturing is cranking out three to five times more than the '60s. we are making three to five times more output today. boeing has seen a 163% jump in business. and u.s. automaker. mostly technology and efficiency gains. you have big manufacturing but without the millions of workers to go with it. >> the numbers are there, but it comes down to the education leap and vocational and jobs have changed. >> that has been the policy
response to make it work for the workers. that is what we have not seen. we are following the battle for mosul and an american soldier killed on the frontlines and iraqi forces are facing fierce opposition from isis. that story ahead here on "early start." what's going on here? i'm val, the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. we're putting away acorns. you know, to show the importance of saving for the future. so you're sort of like a spokes person? more of a spokes metaphor. get organized at voya.com. every time i travel, it's the moments that are most rewarding. because you'll never forget them. the new marriott portfolio of hotels now has 30 brands in over 110 countries. so no matter where you go, you are here. join or link accounts today. ♪
