7:02 am
we said it last week at the republican convention. let's say it again. who said conventions are boring and scripted? >> day one's theme was united together but from the sound of things at certain times last night despite the speeches of bernie sanders and michelle obama, it felt like someone forgot to tell a couple thousand people on the floor of that arena. >> there is work to do to unite the party. we'll see if they can get it done. coming up, we'll get house minority leader nancy pelosi's take on the drama we are seeing here in philly. let's get to andrea mitchell inside the wells fargo center. the room where it happened last night. andrea, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. it was everything hillary clinton could have wanted. an unqualified endorsement from bernie sanders. the two former rivals even cooperating trying to stop an all-out rebellion on the convention floor. passion and purpose at the democratic national convention. the night's main speaker, bernie sanders, getting an emotional prolonged ovation.
7:03 am
>> thank you. >> reporter: moving some of his followers to tears. >> let me thank the 13 million americans who voted for the political revolution. >> reporter: after a ruckus start, the most exciting moment of opening night, bernie sanders at the democratic convention, only the second one he's ever attended. >> based on her ideas and her leadership, hillary clinton must become the next president of the united states. >> reporter: backing his former rival and counting concessions she made on the party platform. >> we produced by far the most progressive platform in the history of the democratic party. >> reporter: and while sanders closed the night throwing support to his former adversary, it was michelle obama who stole the show, taking shots at donald
7:04 am
trump without mentioning his name. >> it's not black and white. >> reporter: an emotional appeal to voters. >> because of hillary clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the united states. >> reporter: other democratic stars including senators elizabeth warren and cory booker pushed for party unity. throughout the day sanders supporters outraged over leaked e-mails. showing party officials during the primary. taking out their frustration. >> settle down. >> reporter: party chair debbie wasserman-schultz who agreed to resign at the end of the week because of the scandal booed off the stage at a breakfast. by afternoon pressure to give up the convention gavel immediately. that honor going to baltimore mayor stephanie rawlings-blake even though she forgot to officially bang the gavel. hours before his big speech,
7:05 am
sanders texted his supporters urging calm. i ask you as a personal courtesy to me to not engage in my protests on the floor. many did. then sarah silverman, a sanders supporter, add lipped her own message. >> can i say to bernie or bust people, you're being ridiculous. >> donald trump live tweeting the democrats. slamming sanders for giving up his revolution. sanders tweeting back, never tweet. savannah? >> andrea mitchell, thank you. earlier, we spoke to the campaign manager and i asked if bernie sanders did enough to unite the party last night. >> he absolutely did. you heard a resounding endorsement for hillary clinton from senator sanders. i think the other important fact here is that unlike ted cruz at donald trump's convention,
7:06 am
senator sanders actually endorsed secretary clinton weeks before. he repeated that endorsement. he called on delegates to work as hard as they could to elect secretary clinton. i think it stands in broader contrast to the republican convention, where the ohio governor wouldn't even show up. definitely had the governor of pennsylvania there last night. and all of senator sanders elected endorsers as well. keith ellison, people like that were all on board, as well. >> you have vocal opponents there. it's a bit of karma, isn't it? last week democrats were gleeful at what they saw as chaos on the floor of the convention of the republicans. you had some boos, you had some shouting. i mean, there was booing during the opening prayer yesterday. >> it was boisterous on the floor. i will definitely give you that. yesterday was the day of business, voting on a number of important procedural items. in contrast to the republican convention where there were
7:07 am
minority reports and struggling to pull votes off the floor and so on, our platform passed by acclimation. no minority reports. the rules passed by acclimation. no minority reports. >> there's a roll call vote today where delegates get to announce their votes and those who voted for bernie sanders in the primaries and caucuses. do you expect more fireworks today? >> no. there is going to be a roll call vote. all 57 states and territories are going to cast their vote. all the delegates are going to have their voices heard. you'll see secretary clinton win the nomination. >> obviously this has been exacerbated by the leak of these e-mails from the democratic national committee. you have suggested and people have noticed that the russians were not only behind it but that perhaps they timed the leak in order to damage hillary clinton and interfere with our election. donald trump last night said that is a conspiracy theory. >> well, it's a theory that's being put forward now by cnn, by
7:08 am
"the washington post," by "the new york times." these are the experts speaking out on this. >> have any government experts told you that? >> cnn reported that the fbi is investigating. >> to you, the clinton campaign. >> they've not communicated that to us. i'm simply going what reporting is telling us. if the reporting is accurate, this is something troubling. the idea that a foreign state could be trying to influence our electoral process, influencing who will be the next president of the united states. that's a very serious situation. >> evidently there's more material out there. do you expect more embarrassing leaks? >> obviously we don't know what's going to happen. clearly the people that are doing this are not interested in helping our cause. we'll just have to see. >> do you believe they have additional e-mails and material? >> i don't know. we don't know when material is posted if it's been doctored, how accurate it is. this is a troubling situation. i also found it troubling last week when donald trump said that
7:09 am
he didn't necessarily believe that nato should intervene to protect our eastern european allies from russian aggression. that's very trouble. -- troubling. >> you think he's pro-putin? >> he said that he praised putin a number of times. i think that alone is something voters need to pay attention to. these larger inferences that are being made by the experts make this situation particularly troubling. >> campaign manager for hillary clinton, thank you for your time this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> our conversation a bit earlier. let's turn to steve kornacki and mark halperin. good morning to you. is the worst over for this lack of unity within the party or do you expect more action today on the floor? >> the morning was one of the worst mornings i've seen for the start of any convention. the chair is ridden out of town on a rail. bernie sanders booed by his own supporters. but the evening was a success. i think tonight after the roll call, a lot of sanders
7:10 am
supporters in the hall said they want the roll call. they want their chance to have their vote and i think they'll be more unified after tonight. >> it's been interesting. walking around philadelphia, i feel like i see more external signs of bernie support. first person i saw checking in at the hotel with a bernie button. are the bernie supporters, the hard core supporters, ready to move on? bernie seems like he's ready to move on. >> he is. i don't think all of them are. i don't think the idea that hillary clinton is going to get 100% of the bernie sanders supporters, i don't think she's going to. i think they have to resign themselves to that reality. you saw bernie sanders in that speech last night go as far as bernie sanders, a self-described revolutionary, is capable of going in the name of compromise. you heard jeers and heckling. i think if there's good news for democrats is you had michelle obama up there and it wasn't about a fractured party or
7:11 am
appealing to the sanders' voters but about a more unifying message that casual voters might have tuned into. >> earlier in the day donald trump was making a concerted effort to get sanders' voters. then he turned a page last night during the sanders' speech and said sanders is a sellout. he packed up, got tired and went home. does that mean he isn't going for the voters? >> he's trying to drive a wedge between bernie sanders who led the revolution and those that aren't ready to lay down their arms. bernie sanders is ready to make common cause with hillary clinton. some of the white working class voters in the state like pennsylvania, western part of the state, i think he still thinks on trade in particular, even though hillary clinton moved to the left on trade, he can peel some of those people off. in a close election, maybe enough. >> yesterday we talked about a poll where trump got a bounce and poll later that showed i guess more of a tie coming out
7:12 am
of the republican convention. >> what mark was talking about, the divide behind numbers we saw yesterday is that blue collar sort of on the one side college educated voter on the other side. we haven't seen a gap like we're now seeing in these polls where donald trump is getting non-college educated white voters in numbers we never have seen. and heading into this election some people thought wasn't possible. it's why he's in the ball game. >> coming up, we'll explore the bill clinton factor in this election. you can catch more from the dnc throughout the day on msnbc live in prime time as well tonight 10:00 eastern, 7:00 pacific here on nbc. we have an exclusive interview with president obama from the white house. i'll sit down with the president and we'll have that for you tomorrow on "today." matt, saving the best for last, you're coming to philly tomorrow. >> i have my amtrak ticket. see you there tomorrow. let me take you through other news, savannah. breaking news in france overnight. two men armed with knives took hostages during morning mass at a church in normandy. one priest was killed.
7:13 am
another hostage seriously wounded. the siege ended when police killed the attackers. their motives are still unclear. an anti-terrorism investigation is now underway. as you remember, this incident comes as france is under high alert after an attack in nice that killed 84 people earlier in the month. we're learning more about the man that went on a deadly stabbing rampage in japan. an attack that he reportedly warned people about months ago. nbc goes to beijing with the latest on this. eunice, good morning to you. >> matt, the world has been shaken by a series of gruesome attacks in the u.s. and europe in recent weeks. today in japan a country where such violence is almost unheard of, the people are in mourning after a bloody attack on a center for disabled people left 19 people dead and more than 20 injured. >> reporter: this mountainous suburb, an hour's drive from
7:14 am
tokyo, is normally a draw for japanese seeking refuge from the frenetic pace of the capital. today, the town of sagamihara and the entire nation are in shock, after a stabbing rampage at a center for the disabled left 19 people dead. local authorities say the attacker is 26-year-old satoshi uematsu, a former employee of the center which housed 149 mentally and physically challenged people. japanese media have been broadcasting this cctv footage, which they say shows uematsu heading to the building early in the morning. nbc news has not yet verified the video. they say he smashed a window and tied up a staff member before stabbing residents ranging in age from 19 to 70. officials say uematsu can be seen here returning to his car around the time police received a call reporting what is now japan's deadliest killing spree
7:15 am
in decades. authorities say after the attack on the facility, uematsu turned himself in presenting three bloody knives. he told them he had been fired earlier this year and held a grudge. his neighbors are surprised at the violence. >> translator: this area is a peaceful neighborhood, a neighbor says. i'm extremely shocked. along with the rest of japan this morning. according to local authorities the attacker was committed to a hospital earlier this year after threatening to kill hundreds of disabled people. he was later released after doctors concluded he was no longer a threat. matt, back to you. >> eunice yoon in beijing. thank you very much. i want to tell you about that explosive wide fire raging in the hills north of los angeles. it's burning through 10,000 acres per day with shifting winds fanning those flames even farther.
7:16 am
nbc's gadi schwartz is in soledad canyon in california with the latest on this. gadi, good morning. >> we've seen this hillside going from completely covered in flames to this smoldering black with this haze. that's a very good sign. earlier, this hillside was burning because firefighters had intentionally set it on fire so they could build a black zone, a buffer zone to protect several homes down the canyon. right now, that is boosting the containment numbers. this fire has gone from 10% contained to 25% contained. >> reporter: the fire fight is far from over. overnight, some of the 20,000 people evacuated during the enormous sand canyon fire are being allowed back home. while others have been left with nothing, including a family of firefighters who were next door neighbors. >> yes, we lost everything, but there is so this things we think about. >> reporter: hard to believe, but this is the second time a
7:17 am
chavez family home had been burned to the ground. they just rebuilt their lives after a wildfire a few years ago. >> heartbreaking at first. once they knew that all the firefighters were safe, that was the main thing in their hearts. they wanted to make sure they could see their daddies again. >> reporter: her husband still willing to go out and protect the homes of others. much of the town is trying to recover by helping those in need. >> people i didn't know, strangers showed up. >> reporter: pets and livestock of all kinds are being housed for free. >> over 400 different types of animals. it's close to 500. >> reporter: a community coming together as the threat of fire still looms above. >> firefighters are taking up a collection for those families who lost everything. meanwhile, 3,000 firefighters remain on the fire lines. matt, back to you. >> gadi schwartz in california, thanks very much. no relief in sight for the heat wave gripping a large portion of the country. last night, we had severe storms throughout the northeast. here in new york, they put on quite a show.
7:18 am
al is down in fl wiphiladelphia re on that. >> down here in philadelphia, it was no picnic. there was power lines down. the empire state building was hit last night. one of a number of buildings hit. here in the city of brotherly love in the afternoon, the skies opened up. flooding everywhere. a real mess. up and down the mid-atlantic corridor. we saw airport delays, power lines down. a real mess. we're not looking for a repeat of that today, but the heat will be back. the good news is not quite as hot, but still that heat dome taking over. big area of high pressure dominating. for today, it's going to feel like either close to 100 degrees or above, from rhode island all the way down to mobile, alabama. over the next few days, you can see, it will feel, again, way above normal, with temperatures in the 90s, into the 100s.

9:08 am
room. it was a changing point when comedian and sanders supporter sarah silverman took the stage. she had a strong message for bernie or bust crowd. she said in her words, you're being ridiculous. a lot of pundits say that was the beginning of the turning point. that speech got a lot of attention. the show stopper certainly was the first lady of the united states, michelle obama delivering an emotional speech to that crowd and the people watching at home. >> i wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. and i watch my daughters, two beautiful intelligent black young women playing with their dogs on the white house lawn.

9:10 am
supporters who said that she told them out that they trusted her when michelle obama took the stage, not a boo. not a boo. respect for her position as the first lady. but also what she represents. she still remains one of the most popular people in washington, d.c. and in this country. so there was definitely a huge amount of respect given to her. tonight though, it is bill clinton's turn to make his case in his speech. he has spoken before ten dncs. however here is the difference as we all know. the very first time he spoke on behalf of his wife. the extraordinary history of this as we're on independence mall, a former president discussing his wife who is now about to be the major party's nominee. >> and could become the first gentleman. >> oh, yeah, the first gentleman. that would be the title. threw me off a bit. i don't know if there's an actual name for it. we have a beautiful location. guys, say hi to hoda and jenna? >> the crowd is getting big. the crowd was thin earlier. you and al are bringing them in.
