5:05 am
ari is msnbc's chief league correspondent. good morning. >> good morning. >> i want to start with you and the tape, a bizarre situation. we are heading into a general election. is this the type of situation that swing voters start to care about? >> well, doesn't seem to matter to his voters. what does it tell us new about him? we know he was a playboy in the '80s. now we know he was his own publicist. he had the time to sideline doing that. look, this is -- this is an unforced error for him. for me, whether or not it matters to voters, he didn't need to lie about it. he could have admitted what most people already knew that he was doing this in the '80s. >> you worked with paul ryan as communications director. this impacts the voters, does it impact paul ryan? is he the guy that will dig his
5:06 am
heels in over this? >> not over this. paul ryan has been put in a difficult spot as speaker of the house. members of the house are for, against and still considering donald trump. to get behind him, he is buying the time and the space. they have to see how donald trump responds and campaigns. this doesn't help, honestly. >> donald trump made a deal out of the fact he is self-funding his campaign. two sources saying he will raise funds for the general and may pay himself back, ultimately. do you think that will impact the voters? he made such a big deal out of it. >> the question is, do people see something he promoted as a centerpiece? he has the money, he'll spend it. now in the general election, we learn he's going to raise hundreds of millions of dollars. that's more than anything in the primaries that blows up the idea
5:07 am
he's independent. at the end of the day, this, not unlike the spokesman thing which is more weird and stupid than important, are questions people look at and say, okay, donald trump seems different. is he different good or different weird? that is important. you cannot run right now as being the same as a washington politician. different can be good. >> does it take away that aura if he works with the establishment? >> it can. if you look at the money, he's raising it from the same old crew, voters who thought they were going to get something different voters say the closer he gets to washington the more he looks like washington and works with washington. people have to know, can they believe what this person says. >> quickly, i want to get both of your reactions to this. wall street journal report that said the clinton global initiative was helping to
5:08 am
facilitate commitments that ultimately benefited a public company and they had ties to the clinton's friends. legally, a lot of folks say this doesn't cross the line but does it and is it a problem for the clintons? >> it can be. based on the report, there is nothing against a law that they gave money to a for profit instead of nonprofit entity. they have done a ton of good work in africa and around the world. nobody denies that. a lot of people celebrated it. the problem here and the question here, was this focus on good works or part of a larger branding to hand out deals or favors that never looked good? >> trump is going to be able to make the place we have been saying for a long time, the clinton foundation has been a slush fund for his campaign operatives and the people knew for years they kick money over
