york mayor michael bloomberg on the stage for first time and the other candidates are making it clear, they are ready for a fight. kristen welker reports. >> as the democratic presidential candidates prepare a roll the dice in las vegas, all eyes will be on former mayor of new york mike bloomberg. he has surged in polls after pouring $300 million of his own fortune into the campaign ads and the billionaire is bracing for a rocky reception from the rivals. he could face tough questions including about this video resurfacing overnight. first reported by buzzfeed news, it is showing bloomberg criticizing the democrats last year saying they are too progressive and too far left creating an opening for president trump in 2016 and then making this comment about the transje transgender community. >> if the conversation in the presidential election is about some guy wearing a dress and
whether he, she, it can go to the locker room with their daughter, that is not a winning formula for most people. >> a campaign spokesperson said that bloomberg is describing how many others might describe the issue, including that mike understands the transgender community has been under attack for decades and so the candidates have been attacking bloomberg including bernie sanders on cnn overnight. >> mr. bloomberg has every right in the world to run for president, but he does not have the right to buy this election. >> elizabeth warren calling him an egomaniac billionaire. pete buttigieg telling nbc news that he is going to face questions about the record in business and mayor and past support for the controversial new york police tactic stop and frisk for which he recently apologized. what specifically do you think that mike bloom beg has to answer for on the debate stage? >> for the treatment of others and the language and the attitude that seems to have
dismissed the humanity of a lot of people. >> reporter: it is coming as a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll is showing bernie sanders opening up a double-digit lead over the democratic field with 27% support nationwide and virtual four-way tie for second place with joe biden at 17%, and warren and buttigieg at 15%. all this before nevada voters have their say. you can watch the democratic presidential debate live from las vegas tonight at 6:00. later today, president trump is flying to bakersfield to celebrate what he is calling a victory for farmers. trump is in the central valley increasing the water supply to agriculture, and critics say it is rolling back protections for the endangered fish in the delta. this is pictures of the president arriving ahead of saturday's nevada caucuses.
and coming up, last week the mayor had announced a gift from the former public works director and the reason that she is under fire for another disclosure. and attorney general william barr is talking on facebook and twitter and also a change that is going to change social media forever. coming up after nbc bay area news at 11:00 -- vo: four years ago,
donald trump beat the democratic establishment. and then he outlasted democratic insiders in washington on impeachment, despite his obvious crimes and corruption. romney: the president is guilty. vo: now, if we don't do something different this time around, he'll win again. that's the hard truth. we simply can't afford to nominate another insider or an untested newcomer who doesn't have the experience to beat trump on the economy. we need to think different. tom steyer is a progressive businessman who left his company and is using his time and money to beat big corporations and address climate change. he can expose donald trump as a fraud and failure on the economy. tom steyer: he's running on the economy. he running on the idea that democrats can't grow an economy, are a bunch of socialists, you can't afford to vote for him. my job is is take on mr. trump and kick his ass on the economy. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.
attorney general bill barr has been the target of criticism over the past few days, but today, he is the one directing the fire. >> an internet company, scott mcgrew. >> yes, google and facebook he is directing the fire at and the attorney general is asking questions about the law to shield the silicon valley laws that says they are not responsible for what is posted and this is the internet's backbone for years. and today, the top law enforcement is called into question the laws, and i can't
change the law and that is congress' job, and under the section, that is the question, and it should alarm the social network. >> and the early days of the online public bulletinboard like aol are replaced with consistent algorithms and recommendations and targeting, and with these new tools, the line between passively hosting third-party speech, and actively cure rating and promoting the speech starts to blur. >> we also learned over night that barr has thought to be re-signing while trump is pressuring him to do what he wants and most recently pushing him to lower the recommended sentence for the president's campaign aide and long time adviser roger stone, and the doj did it, but it is not because the president told them to, and now the judge in the case should
throw the case out entirely and start over with a new trial for stone. that does not appear to be happening and marcus, he is going to be sentenced tomorrow for lying to congress and witness intimidation. >> scott, thank you. the fate of harvey weinstein is in the jury's hands and it is now the second day of deliberations or assault trial of the movie mogul, and this is weinstein entering the criminal court in new york city, and weinstein is charged with raping one woman, and sexually assaulting another, and he is denying all claims of sexual misconduct and denisays any sex encounters were consensual. and now, mayor breed says that after last week admitting to a $5,600 gift from mohammad nuru to fix her car, and she had known him for more than 20 years, and now the examiner is saying that the e-mails the other man at the center of the

used to house a restaurant, and the owner says his goal is to bring authentic cultural identity to the community. and the advocates are planning to raise the issue at the planning community. >> and mike pence is marking the 75th anniversary of iwo jima and the vice president and his wife attended the national ceremony of the marine corps in northern virginia this morning. vice president pence placed a wreath to commemorate the battle which was in world war ii and best known for the photo showing the marines raising the u.s. flag. meanwhile, this is a solemn day in american history, and 78 years ago today, president franklin roosevelt signed an executive order to implement the interment of japanese immigrants. >> now it is being honored as a day of remembrance. tomorrow, lawmakers in sacramento are going to consider
a resolution for an official apology. and now, much of mississippi is under a flash flood watch. storms are moving in as they could bring as much as two inches of rain, and jackson, and the mississippi department of wildlife is now on patrol, and using these boats to go door to door and the officials are warning and others to stay out of the water because of snakes and other dangers and rivers across 14 states are flood level and many of them are expecting rain until thursday. >> and more coming our way west. >> just a little. >> yes. >> they have had so much rain the past couple of weeks, and then at this time of the year, upstreak, you will get some of the snow melting and coming down the mississippi river and that is rising every spring, and we are combining those two things every summer and then we have been bone dry all month long, and so, as we look outside, it

reaching 59. and san francisco is up to 62 on the embarcadero and novato is up to 67 today. so still well above normal temperatures, and we will see the slight changes here. and now what i am seeing as we are taking a look at the satellite imagery, it is showing a wide swath of clouds moving to the bay area, and this is going to arrive friday and doesn't look to bring us much rain, but it is going to dive to the south, and going to bring southern california a chance of some showers. i will put a slight chance of rain in the forecast for some to coastal areas, and does it look like a significant storm, but going into next week, it is going to open up the door for some more low pressure systems to come in, and a little bit closer, and it could bring us some rain chances before the end of next week. still, very dry and a lack of snow in the sierra and look at how warm it is in squaw valley going into the weekend and upper 40s and low 50s and still dry.
we are seeing that as well in the bay area, and checking out the inland forecast and upper 60s and low 70s and up to 72 degrees on friday and even as more clouds are moving in, and into next week where we are still seeing the flowers bloom, and the trees are starting to bud and also a lot of sunshine in this seven-day forecast. laura and marcus. >> looks good. thank you. >> coming up, if you are wondering why everyone is sharing prom know toes today we can explain. it all started with a former first couple michelle and barack obama and why everybody is getting in and the prom challenge. you might even see gaffes, some of ours. >> and first, happening now, if you are eating lunch, look away right now, because burger king is removing artificial colors and flavors and preservatives from its items. they ended the burger covered in mold and said it is the beauty

well, also this morning, a new challenge started by former first lady michelle obama to get people to vote and it is called hashtag prom challenge. >> she posted this picture from her prom in 1982 and asked for social media to join in and ask schools how they are getting people to vote, and those with the best votes could win a free prom for the show. and so celebrities to basketball players and others posting their prom picture, and so, we are sharing ours, too. >> there you have it. >> and there you can see, kari, she went to the prom with him and ended up married.
>> yes, people thought we were married because we wore white to the prom. >> that is sweet looking back in time. >> and a last look at the forecast. >> no, that is it. >> it is going to be nice and sunny. >> okay. >> my ancestors were slaves in alabama and during the great migration they moved to louisville, kentucky, and the sacrifices they made allowed me to become who i am today and i am hoping that our children use the family stories and achievements to achieve even greater things. growing up in la, bad air forced us indoors.
and now we have to deal with this. climate change is an emergency. that's why i wrote the nation's most progressive climate law. and that's why i'm endorsing tom steyer. because when big oil tried to stop our clean air laws, he led us to victory. same with the keystone pipeline. when tom says we can save the world and do it together believe him. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.
