7:02 am
minister got the memo, good to have a firm handshake. >> vice grip shake there. good crowd on the plaza. safe to say, spring is here. millions of people have temperatures in the 70s this weekend. >> happy to hear that. our top story is this bitter feud between hillary clinton and bernie sanders that reached new heights in the debate in brooklyn last night. our decision 2016 team has it covered this morning. we're also going to talk to rnc chairman reince priebus about his ongoing delegate dustup with donald trump. first, nbc's andrea mitchell is here. she was at the debate late last night and what a debate it was. >> good morning. in a debate that more than lived up to its billing, the two democrats ripped into each other's judgment and readiness to be president. >> reporter: in the only showdown before the make or break new york primary, fireworks almost from the moment they took the stage.
7:03 am
>> i do question her judgment. i question a judgment which voted for the war in iraq. the worst foreign policy blunder the history of this country. >> well, the people of new york voted for me twice to be their senator from new york. and president obama trusted my judgment enough to ask me to be secretary of state. i think you need to have the judgment on day one to be both president and commander in chief. >> do we really feel confident about a candidate saying that she's going to bring change in america when she is so dependent by big money interests? i don't think so. >> reporter: wall street and her paid speeches, a growing feud. >> i stood up against the behaviors of the banks when i was a senator. i called them out on their mortgage behavior. >> secretary clinton called them out. oh, my goodness. they must have been really crushed by it.
7:04 am
was that before or after you received huge sums of money by giving speaking engagements? >> reporter: they shouted each other down over the minimum wage. >> wait a minute. >> it's not accurate. >> wait a minute. i have stood on the debate stage with senator sanders eight prior times. >> excuse me. >> secretary, please. >> i have said the exact same thing. >> senator, please. >> if we can raise it in new york or los angeles -- >> if you're both screaming at each other, the viewers won't be able to hear either of you. >> reporter: clinton slamming sanders on guns. >> this is a serious difference between us, and what i want to start by saying, it's not a laughing matter. 90 people, on average, a day are killed or commit suicide or die in accidents from guns. >> reporter: sanders calling her out for using the term "super predators" to describe drug dealers when she was first lady. >> because it was a racist term and everybody knew it was a racist term.
7:05 am
>> reporter: clinton acknowledging flaws in the 1994 crime bill that led to recent protests. >> i'm sorry for the consequences that were unintended. >> today, the candidates are going their separate ways. sanders, to the vatican. clinton, to california. fundraisers with george clooney. leaving new york voters to sort through the candidates' radically different positions on a host of issues. >> andrea, stay with us. we want to bring mark halperin into the conversation. >> managing editor of "bloomberg" politics. good to see you. >> morning. >> last night you were there. 291 delegates at stake in new york. we vote on tuesday. did anything happen last night to change the dynamic in new york? >> ninth debate between them. over the last few months, we learned sanders is great at raising money, inspiring young people, not that great at debating. he's fine. but he left openings last night that a skilled candidate would
7:06 am
have walked her through and put her on the defense. he didn't do it. i think going to the vatican is symbolic. finishes the debate, leaves the country and is behind and didn't do anything last night to catch up. >> if you look at the first debate and the ninth debate, the race has been static but the tone, what a difference. andrea, i know you were there. >> you could feel the static electricity between the two of them. these two people really do not like each other. you can feel that she, even though she can't say it publicly, wants to say, enough already, i have the numbers. leave me alone. and he is really getting angrier and angrier. as he sees that crowd the other night. 27,000 people in greenwich village. he feels he could almost do this, except for the delegate math. >> his argument is, enough already. i've won eight of the last nine states. i keep winning. why would i get out of the race? where does this send for him, if it does?
7:07 am
>> she needs the charlie sheen strategy. she needs to be winning. got to win in new york and then win in the other northeastern states. that would go a long way. not being able to get him out of the race because he has the money to go through june in california, but to start convincing the party, it's time to think about a general election. he's got to fight back. that's why last night was surprising to me. he has to be a fighter. he's behind and basically accepted a status quo, familiar argument. there was a more heated tone but he needs to change the dynamic of the race, rather than continue along, which is what he did last night. >> mark and andrea, thank you. republican candidates were under the same roof attending the new york state republican gala in manhattan. nbc's national correspondent peter alexander covering that side of the race. peter, good morning. >> the rnc is again trying to erase any criticism about the delegate selection process. without naming names, pushing back after donald trump's relentless attacks that the system is, in his words, rigged, the party sending out a memo.
7:08 am
it reads the following, the rules surrounding the delegate selection has been clearly laid out in every state and territory. each process is easy to understand for those willing to learn it. adding, it ultimately falls on the campaigns to be up to speed on the delegate rules. there is a new op-ed out from donald trump this morning, who has been out organized by the cruz campaign. he's a little more cooperative in his tone. pledging to work with the rnc if elected to reform our election policies, he says. all three of the republicans though in midtown manhattan last night. new york city clearly is trump's town. 1,000 demonstrators protesting outside. inside, trump made a impassioned defense of new york values. it was a swipe at cruz's, whose applause line fell on deaf ears at the dinner. pressing him to soften his rhetoric, as heading to the general election.
7:09 am
writing, the "post"-pivot trump needs to be more presidential, better informed on policy, yet less thin skinned. the promise is there in the rookie, they say, who is after all, leading the field. four days ago, trump looking for an embrace from the empire state. >> looks like he'll get it according to the polls. peter alexander, thank you so much. >> reince priebus is the chairman of the republican national committee and joins us this morning. good to have you here. >> good morning. >> i don't know if i need to remind you, donald trump is never at a loss for words. i'll play you a clip of the things he's said about the republican party organization over the last several days. >> this is a crooked system, folks. it's not fair, and it's not fair to you people. it's a rigged, disgusting, dirty system. the republican national committee, they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this kind of crap to happen. >> for good measure, he added at another point, you personally ought to be ashamed of yourself. is he out of line?
7:10 am
>> well, look, i mean, i'm not quite sure what the rhetoric is all about, but the truth is, these plans have been in place since october of last year. it was the same system that elected abraham lincoln. it's pretty much the same system that the democrats use. delegates and voters choose the nominee. that's what's happening. quite frankly, the complaining that goes on is something that, i think, probably distracts from what we really need to do, which is to come together as republicans. i know it's hard because we still have a contest. you know, i think it gets distracting and isn't something most people really give a darn about. >> he's out there trashing the system, trashing the party. have you called him up and said, hey, knock it off? >> look, we talk a lot, savannah. i talk to all the candidates a lot. it's not a secret that we communicate with all the campaigns. we have been communicating.
7:11 am
when someone publicly calls you out, i think you also publicly have to say, wait a second, here are the rules. they've been in place a long time. even your reporter, peter alexander, has said the same thing. it's what we want to do, make sure that people understand these are rules that have been available. they're out there. they're submitted by all of the states. the rnc doesn't write these rules, the states do. each state, in many cases, has a different way of electing delegates. you have to go into each other and each state and learn the rules and run. by the way, he's done well. he's received a greater percentage of delegates than the popular vote. you know, i think in the end, it works just fine. >> chairman, he's not alone in thinking that this system is a little odd. party activists choose the president, not the voters. there was no caucus or primary in the state of colorado. people say it's anti-democratic, including millions of people who support donald trump.
7:12 am
don't you think, as you look at it from a common sense point of view, there is something strange about that system? >> no. i mean, what about caucuses, is that strange? i mean, who is to say a primary is the only way to choose delegates? some states use a convention. in virginia, they chose their -- the republican party of virginia chooses its governor candidate through a state convention. it really isn't strange. it's very grassroots. over 60,000 people a month ago in colorado voted at their precinct level. then they went to the county level. then the congressional district level. all the while, by the way, willie, all the candidates competed with surrogates in the system, without complaining, by the way. the whole way through for a month. i think it's a little too late to complain after the fact, that a particular state's process isn't something that you like. now, what is true is that the
7:13 am
system can be changed, but it has to be changed at the convention, if people want to change it with the delegates. that's how the rules are written. i don't write the rules for the republican party. the delegates at the convention write the rules for the republican party. >> all right. chairman priebus, we're out of time. we have to leave it there. thank you for your time this morning. >> you bet. >> thanks, chairman. >> donald trump will join us live next thursday in a town hall here on rockefeller plaza. vice president biden's wife spoke to natalie about the president's decision not to run for president. >> good morning. we had a unique opportunity to travel with dr. jill biden to highlight a group she's passionate about. a group she has a personal connection to. military families. she was very candid with us when it came to her husband's difficult decision. >> your husband also said he regrets not running. every day, for the most part. is that something that you think about, as well? what it could have been like, had timing been a little bit different? >> well, you know, i say every
7:14 am
day, i mean, joe, i really do day, i mean, joe, i really do feel that joe would have made a great president. i think he has the character. i think that he's a convener. i think that one of his strengths is compromise. so i feel, you know, maybe america missed an opportunity. i don't know. it just wasn't the right time. >> dr. biden saying, given all the negative campaign rhetoric, that america could use, perhaps, a compromiser in chief. timing wouldn't be right with the death of her son beau. and we also had an inspiring visit to the fort reilly base in kansas, home to 50,000 people. it was part of the joining forces initiative. she, along with first lady michelle obama, focused on the unique needs of military families. we'll have more on that visit coming up later on in the program, guys. >> thank you, natalie.
7:15 am

8:35 am
are. that moment over a few years can be comedic and heartbreaking. it's kind of what the film has. it's a little of both. it was fun to try to navigate that. >> it's interesting how it's set up. in this story, you and nicole kidman are siblings. your parents were performance artists who subjected you as little children to being in their performance art. >> right. >> i don't want to overstate the parallels, but you also were brought up as a child actor. did you draw on any of that? >> there are some parallels. ours was not as interesting to warc warrant a movie written about it. yeah, you know, our experience, we didn't end up going missing. doesn't have the mystery this film does. >> as i mentioned at the top, you star in this and you're the director. you're directing none other than nicole kidman and christopher walken. what's that like? mr. walken, i have a few notes for you. >> it'd be the opposite because

9:02 am
crying. upset as a mom. this is video of a child being disciplined in georgia. 5 years old, a little boy. he was being hit with a paddle by school officials. it's gone viral because the mom posted it on her facebook page. she recorded it on her phone because she said she had to consent to it. she thought she was going to have to go to jail. apparently, there is a truancy issue that she had been sent to jail for before. she thought if she -- >> her son had been out for 18 days. >> she felt if she didn't consent, then she'd have to go to jail once again. her son would be expelled from school. she sat there and recorded the video. it's been reviewed by, i believe, 1.9 million people when i checked it out this morning. it is hard to watch. this goes on for quite a while. the child is crying. you'll see it now. >> i'm only going to do it one time, unless you wiggle around. okay?
9:03 am
one time. >> no! >> we're going to do it. >> mommy, help me! >> it's so hard to watch. that goes on and on. now, the use of corporal punishment by school officials, it is legal in georgia. and 18 other states. they say about 50% of the districts have used corporal punishment. gabe gutierrez reported on this earlier and said 11,000 times last year, they applied corporate punishment in schools in georgia. the boy's mother, shania perez, says she was pretending to text so she could record it. she wanted people to see it. that's when she uploaded it on her facebook page. she does admit that her son almost hit another student, ran away and spit on a school official. here's what she says about his punishment. >> it was emotionally devastating. i don't know how else to describe it. i feel like this is going to
9:04 am
ruin his last few weeks of school. he hates school now. does not even want to go. >> according to jasper county schools student and parent handbook, corporate punishment is allowed for cases including spitting. the district cannot comment because the incident apparently is being looked at now by officials. they say corporal punishment only used with parental consent. the district is investigating and looking into the discipline policies. it seems like even if the child is, i don't know if they label them a problem child, but if there are issues, we don't know what was going on. the mother said he had been sick and that's why he was out 18 days. it seemed like this is a child that needs to be loved and cared for. in this case, rather than paddle them, embrace them and teach them the right way. >> what's the lesson that kid is learning there? school is associated with pain. >> right. >> i think -- i understand the
9:05 am
mother was filming it so she could get the word out, but she has more restraint than i would, watching someone hit my kid. >> expel us? i don't care. i'm taking him out of this school anyway. on a 5-year-old? it made my blood boil, watching that. i was crying in my dressing room watching it. the video is just a small portion of it. the child is screaming. there is nothing -- there is nothing that makes me more angry than to see that. >> i agree. >> horrific. other news, i had a great opportunity last week and this week. i traveled with the vice president's wife, dr. jill biden, and was able to sit down with her. she has a big initiative aimed at really supplying support to our military families. all over the world. we also have a had to talk politics, of course. talked about her husband's decision, of course, not to run for president, because the timing wasn't right.
9:06 am
>> your husband also said he regrets not running. >> uh-huh. >> every day, for the most part. is that something that you think about, as well, what it could have been like, had timing been a little bit different? >> well, you know, i say every day, i mean, joe -- i really do feel that joe would have made a great president. i think he has the character. i think that he's a convener. i think one of his strengths is compromise. so i feel, you know, maybe america missed an opportunity. i don't know. it just wasn't the right time. >> i asked her, we could use a compromiser in chief right now. she said, yes, i think so. interesting because she told me they do watch the debates. she said, you know, it's sometimes hard to hear what, as she said, the other side has to say about certain issues. watching the debate last night, even democratic debate, you
9:07 am
wonder what the tone would have been like. >> you can hear the way she talks, the way vice president biden talked. in their hearts, they know he'd be a good candidate, but it wasn't the right time with the death of their son beau. >> we'll have the full story coming up in a little bit. incredible visit. great to meet the military families. we have eluded to it. you may have noticed, we're very excited for our good friend willie geist. this sunday marks the beginning of a new era. "sunday today with biwillie geist." >> it's still the "today" show you've known and loved but we'll take a little more time with our stories. when we do a profile, you'll see, you know, seven or eight minutes, something like that. >> i love that. >> you'll get to know the people a little better. people in your lives. this week, backstage with the cast of "hamilton." >> incredible. >> this show everybody is talking about. they gave us access you've never seen before, to hang out with
