you're doing fantastic. >> donald trump does "saturday night live," this morning the ratings are in and as you might have guessed they're huge. nd at vetting process, ben carson's front runner status brings extra scrutiny but it is as unprecedented as he claims. plus pressure mounts on the president of the university of missouri to resign over his handling of racial incidents on campus, more on the growing protest and special meeting being held today. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west, this is "way too early". good morning, it's monday, november 9th. u.s.a. lewis bergdorf. ben carson spent much of the weekend beating back the scrutiny of being one of the fruners in the republican field after questions emerged about his temper as a young man and
whether he tried to stab someone. a political article accused him of claims of getting aer full scholarship to west point. he talked about being offered a full ride after being dinner with general westmoreland, but as the detroit noise reports he wasn't in detroit and that carson was defiant. >> there is a desperation on behalf of some to try to find a way to tarnish me because they have been looking through everything. they have been talking to everybody i have ever known, everybody i have everer seen. there's going to be a scandal. there's got to be something. they are getting desperate. next week it will be my kindergarten teacher who said i peed in my pants. i mean, it's ridiculous. here is my prediction, my prediction is that all of you guys trying to pile on is actually going to help me because when i go out to these book signings i see these
thousands of people, they say, don't let the media get you down, don't let them disturb you. please continue to fight for us. they understand that this is a witch-hunt. >> there are things that have been independently vetted, one is general westmoreland. we know now looking at his records that he was not there when you said in your book he said he was. >> i know he was there in detroit and i know it was -- there was congressional medal of honor dinner. it may not have been memorial day but it was sometime during the time when i was the city executive officer. >> and carson later told the "new york times" he didn't remember all the specific details saying it was informal a, adding the general told him something like with a record like yours we could easily get you a scholar aship to west point and the "wall street journal" also reports in an interview carson claimed when he was in high school he protected white students in his biology lab by hiding them amid violence
after dr. martin luther king jr. was assassinated but the paper says half a dozen classmates from his class couldn't corroborate that story. throughout the weekend he remained defiant. >> when you write a book with a co-writer and you say there was a class, a lot of times they will put a number or something on it just to give it for meat. obviously decades later i'm not going to remember the course number. >> wouldn't the easiest way to diffuse at least some of these questions be to ask your brother to come out and speak about this? you said it was your mother and your brother who would know about your temper. >> my mother has alzheimer's. >> obviously. >> my brother is not interested in talking to the media and a number of other people aren't, either, that i've talked to. >> vetting is a normal part of the process. did you not expect this? >> i have always said that i expected to be vetted, but being vetted and what is going on with
me, you said this 30 years ago, you said this 20 years ago, this didn't exist, this didn't -- you know, i just -- i have not seen that with anyone else. >> now, reaction from fellow republicans and democrats was decidedly mixed. >> you know, when you say, though, hitting your mother over the head with a hammer when you talk about hitting the friend in a face with a lock, a padlock, and, you know, you talk about stabbing someone and it got stopped by a belt buckle, which, you know, bet buckles don't stop stabbing, they turn and twist and things slide off them. pretty lucky if that happened. he talked about he has pathological disease, that's a serious statement when you say you have pathological disease because as i understand it you can't really cure it. but he said he had pathological disease. >> when you look at dr. carson, to the best of my knowledge this man does not believe that climate change is caused by human activity. this man wants to abolish
medicare impacting tens of millions of seniors and this man wants to give you tax breaks to the rich. i think it might be a better idea -- i know it's a crazy idea, but maybe we focus on the issues impacting the american people and what candidates are saying rather than just spending so much time exploring their lives 30 or 40 years ago. meanwhile, senator marco rubio is trying to put questions about his finances at rest. the presidential candidate released two years worth of charges to an american express credit card issued by the republican party of florida that were previously undisclosed. they showed eight personal expenses worth about $7,200 from 2005 and 2006 that rubio says have been repaid. it includes more than $3700 paid to a tiling company when the senator says he accidentally grabbed the wrong card from his wallet. another expense, vacation at piggybacked off a business trip to las vegas. the rubio campaign says he paid more than 1, $700 for hotel and
car rental fees after the business portion of the trip ended. we should mention three years ago a florida state commission cleared rubio of ethics violations related to his use of the state party credit card. with three democrats left in the 2016 race for the white house each candidate is trying to sand out. rachel maddow hosted a forum on saturday. they tried to reach out with discussions about gun violence and they didn't make many headlines but there were lighter moments during a lightning round of questioning. >> if you had to pick somebody from the republican presidential field this year to be your vice president, there was a national crisis and there had to be a unity and it was for the good of the nation and those were your choices, those 15 men and women, who would you choice? >> ruin their life right here. do it. >> whoever i name will really get hurt in the republican party
and so i don't know if i want to do that, but -- >> you could use it tactically. >> yeah, i could. >> you could decide -- >> you know, there are republicans i could pick just none of them. >> okay. >> what is the biggest public misconception about you? >> well, people think i am grum grumpy, people think i am too serious, but i think what people don't see is i have seven beautiful grandchildren who are the joy of my life. >> i like the admission by bernie people think i'm grumpy. bernie sanders has reportedly lost his nevada state director, his she have had da political director will step into the role. two weeks to go in the louisiana governor's race it continues to heat up. louisiana state representative john bell edwards released and
add attacking his op sent senator david vittert for his involvement in a scandal. he admitted to committing a serious skin after his phone number appeared on the list of the d.c. madam. it contrasts military experience with vitter's solicitation of escorts. >> the choice couldn't be more clear. john bell edwards who answered our country's call and served as a ranger or david vitter who answered a prostitute's call minutes after he skipped a vote honoring 28 sold whiers who gave their lives in defense of our freedom. david vitter chose prostitutes over patriots. now the choice is yours. >> now, the runoff will be decided on november 21st. let's go to some foreign policy news. president obama and the israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu will meet later today
