tv Way Too Early MSNBC April 6, 2015 2:30am-3:01am PDT
outh dakota will become the only state without a visit from president obama. >> south dakota is the only state president obama has not visited since taking office. >> obama came close when he was on the standing rock reservation last year. part of it extends into the state but he stayed north of the border. >> that feels like he's doing this on purpose. the only thing more insulting is if he does it but does it inside a giant plastic bubble. i'm not touching anything. this doesn't count as a visit. >> good morning. it's monday, april 6th. welcome to "way too early." president obama was busy this weekend and he looked to rally support for the iranian nuclear agreement and tried to spell out why he's sitting down with country that's repeatedly threatened others. >> he sat down and explained how
this will supply the military muscle needed. >> we are proud enough to test these propositions without putting ourselves at risk. that's the thing that sometimes as i hear these debates going on that people don't seem to understand. iran's defense budget is $30 billion. our defense budget is closer to $600 billion. iran understands that they cannot fight us. for us to say let's try, understanding we're preserving all our options and we're not naive but if in fact we can resolve these issues diplomatically, we are more likely to be safe and in a better position to protect our allies and who knows, iran may change. if it doesn't, our deterrence capabilities, our military superiority stays in place. >> the president says just
because the nuclear issues and dealings doesn't mean america's forgotten the country's actions on several fronts including activities that claimed american lives. >> it does not end our problems with iran. and we are still going to be aggressively working with our allies and friends to reduce and hopefully at some point stop the destabilizing activities that iran has engaged in the sponsorship of terrorist organizations, and that may take some time but it's our belief and my belief that we will be in a stronger position to do so if the nuclear issue has been put in a box. >> so the president wasn't the only one out there making his case. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu appeared on
three separate shows and warned of iran's regional ambitions. >> i'm not trying to kill any deal. i'm trying to kill a bad deal and say it's a historic decision and historic deal that could be historically a bad deal. it leaves the terrorist state of our time with a vast nuclear infrastructure. this is a deal that leaves iran with the capacity to produce the material for many nuclear bombs and it does so by lifting the sanctions pretty much up front. iran will have billions of dollars flown to it not for hospitals or schools or roads but to pump up its military machine which is busy conquering the middle east as we speak. >> and netanyahu also challenged the president's position that without diplomacy there could be another war on the horizon. >> i think the alternatives are not this bad deal or war. i think the third alternative is
standing firm and ratcheting up the pressure until you get a better deal. everybody understands that instead of putting the pressure on them to change their policy in fact the opposite is happening with this. they're getting a free path to the bomb. the drop in oil, these sanctions are becoming more effective. and then once they're at the table, why let up on those sanctions? in fact, that's the time to increase the pressure and to get tomorrow what you can't get today. >> is israeli prime minister says he's contacted two-thirds of the u.s. house and the senate to tell them about his opposition to the deal. but he hasn't wonover yet senator die an feinstein. >> i think he said what he's had to say, and to be candid with you, this can backfire on him, and i wish that he would contain himself, because he has put out
no real alternative. in his speech to the congress no real alternative. since then no real alternative. i don't think it's helpful for israel to come out and oppose this one opportunity to change a major dynamic which is a downhill dynamic in this part of the world. >> actually just for the record, netanyahu did provide an alternative. it was don't negotiate with terrorist states. meanwhile bob corker isn't rejecting the deal outright but he wants congress to get involved. >> i know there are a lot of details that will be worked out over the next several months. that's why on behalf of the america people congress needs to be playing a role. certainly the american people want to know that someone is teasing out all of the details, especially as they see iran reporting one thing in their country and the u.s. something else here. look, this is a place for sober
and thoughtful people to dig in. >> that debate will continue on "morning joe." rolling stone retracted its report about an alleged gang rain after a review found a failure of journalism. with rolling stone's corporation they performed a full review after questions arose about the story about a young woman called jackie that was written by reporters. among the findings they did not attempt to contact three of jackie's friends. the magazine never identified the alleged attackers and the magazine never gave the fraternity a chance to respond to jackie's allegations. he apologized acknowledging i did not go far enough to verify her story. i allowed my concern for her well being and my fear of
retraumatizing her and my confidence in her credibility to take the place of more questioning and more facts. a lawyer speaking for jackie had no comment and rolling stone apologized for the damage and the report. uva's president issued a statement last night saying in part quote, irresponsible journalism unjustly damaged the reputations of many innocent individuals and the university of virginia. but while they admitted faults and failures rolling stone publisher says his top editors will keep their jobs and the reporter will continue to report for the magazine. columbia's journalism school is going to be holding a press conference today answering questions about that report which actually went 3,000 words longer than the original story. senator rand paul is set to join candidates in louisville kentucky on tuesday. before then he's releasing this
teaser video. >> it's time for a new way, a new set of ideas, a new leader. one you can trust. one who works for you and above all, it's time for a new president. >> well that's expected to be slogan. defeat the washington machine, unleash the american dream. he's already getting whacked by others for his foreign policy chops and the iran deal that president obama just completed. >> the best deal i think comes with a new president. hillary clinton would do better. i think everybody on our side except maybe rand paul could do better. >> the most recent national polls show that paul is behind several other contending voters.
but there's a report in the new york times that jeb bush may not be as invincible as advertised. the times reports that he's struggling to win over grass roots crowds and his ability to fund raise may not force early exits from other people in the field. bush's early campaigning looks like the juggernaut that wasn't. >> meanwhile the debate rages on among republicans over that religious freedom bill in arkansas and the one in indiana. louisiana governor said on meet the press that he was disappointed with indiana's decision to revise its bill. to clarify that businesses can't discriminate against gay customers. >> i'm disappointed. let's remember what this was about. this is about business owners that don't want to have to choose between their christian faith and being able to operate their businesses. now, what they don't want is the
government to force them to participate in wedding ceremonies that con dra dikt their believes. i was disappointed that you could see christians and their businesses face discrimination in indiana. i hope the legislators will rectify that. >> and rick santorum seemed to agree with bobby jindal's assessment. >> i think the language is better. i think the current language in indiana now has been held to have a limited view of what religious freedom is in the workplace. tolerance is a two-way street. if you're a print shop and you are a gay man, should you be forced to print god hates tags for the west borrow baptist
church? >> on the other side of it former governor arnold swartsz neger disagrees writing that indiana's original law and others like it will hurt the republican party. he writes in part, quote, all you have to do is look at the response to indiana's law and wherever young people congregate. if we want young people to listen to our ideas, we must be inclusive and an open party and not a party of divisions. still ahead a lot of sports to catch up an. if you're a kentucky fan like me, not a lot of great sport. also, baseball's opening night. and the ncaa finals now set. it's going to be duke versus wisconsin. full highlights ahead and a check of weather when "way too early" gets back.

and to us that feels really good. before larry instantly transferred money from his bank of america savings account to his merrill edge retirement account. before he opened his first hot chocolate stand calling winter an "underserved season". and before he quit his friend's leaf-raking business for "not offering a 401k." larry knew the importance of preparing for retirement. that's why when the time came he counted on merrill edge to streamline his investing and help him plan for the road ahead. that's the power of streamlined connections. that's merrill edge and bank of america. ♪ ♪ ♪ for the 51 million of us who may need a different kind of underwear, this is new depend silhouette active fit. it's slim and smooth so wearing it is no big deal.
