tv Way Too Early MSNBC January 4, 2016 2:30am-3:01am PST
if you're having all sorts of difficulty, if your wife says she's leaving you, she doesn't love you anymore, i don't care, get out and vote, right? you got to get out and vote. >> well the holidays are behind us, and the first presidential primary contest now just four weeks away. what you just heard only a taste of how the candidates are ramping up. plus iran erupts into protest after the execution of a prominent cleric by its main rival saudi arabia, setting fire to its embassy, and now a major move by the saudi kingdom. armed protesters who took over a national wildlife refuge in oregon say they plan to stay at the site for as long as it takes. we'll have the latest on the standoff. it is 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west. this is "way too early." ♪
good morning everyone. it is monday, january 4th, the first monday of the new year. i'm shiba russell. tensions are running high in the middle thooeast this mornin after saudi arabia executed a prominent heeite muslim cler baeman over the weekend. saudi arabia is cutting ties with iran. the saudis have given iran's ambassador and other iranian diplomats 48 hours to leave the country. this weekend's unrest began after saudi arabia held its largest mass execution in decades on saturday. 47 were killed, including that shiite cleric nimr al nimr. his executions sparked a wave of protest. the pictures show the saudi
embassy in tehran set on fire after protesters stormed the building. there were no reports of injuries but up to 40 arrests were made. iran's president condemned the execution but said the attack on the saudi embassy was by no means justified. in tehran, crowds were seen burning u.s. tags to protest u.s. links to saudi leaders. ir iran's supreme leader says saudi's leader will face divine vengeance. john kirby says we are particularly concerned that the execution of the prominent shia cleric and political activist risks exacerbating sectarian tensions at a time when they urgently need to be retuesdayed. we turn to 2016 politics, there are four weeks left until the iowa caucuses and donald trump shared his first television ad with "the washington post." 30-second spot with a focus on immigration and isis. it opens on president obama and
hillary clinton and at one point shows the suspects from the san bernardino terrorist attack. trump rolled into the new year with a giant rally at biloxi, mississippi's coast coliseum filled with 13,000 fired up fans. trump also spoke about the size of the crowd and spent minutes berating the cameraman who provides a steady feed of the podium for tv outlets for not showing the audience >> these cameras back here right now, they will never show this crude. they'll never show this crowd. [ booing ] no, they're never going to show this crowd. they're never going to show it. turn it. turn it. turn it. spin it. spin the camera. spin the camera. i'd fire his ass right now if i could. true.
>> the challenge facing trump over the next few weeks is to convert his rallies into votes. and analysis of his support from the "new york times" finds his strongest supporters are self-identified republicans who are registered as democrats concentrated in the south, appalachia and the industrial north. their data shows his strongest backers are less affluent, less educated and less likely to turn out to vote. trump is relying on southern states, many voting on march 1st to catapult him to the nomination. trump was also featured in a new terrorist recruitment video that emerged over the holiday weekend. the video from the al qaeda affiliate al shabab features trump's call to ban all muslims from entering the u.s. when asked about it, trump brushed it off saying "they use other people, too." this follows the unsubstantiated claim that hillary clinton made in last month's debate he was being used in an isis recruitment video. trump addressed that as well. >> well she wasn't right because
it wasn't done then and it was al shabab, she said it was isis, it was al shabab and of course at some point they're going to do something. i'm the front-runner by a loot. what does that mean? we're not supposed to speak about the enemy? and they are the enemy, by the way. we're not supposed to speak about the enemy because if we do, we're going to be in a propaganda? everybody knows anybody is going to be in a propaganda. her husband is part of isis' propaganda, i think it's isis and they put him down as the degenera degenerate. they talked about all of his scandals. >> bill clinton returns to the campaign trail today in new hampshire. at one point the former president will be just 20 miles from trdonald trump's event in lowell, massachusetts. trump said he will not allow hillary clinton to campaign as a strong advocate for women, charging her with a role in her husband's scandals. >> she's got a problem. she's married to a person that's a serious abuser, and i mean, at the highest level, and she -- you know, she's into the an
innocent victim. she was the one that would go along with him in this this whole game that they play. and you look at what happened with some of the people that he took advantage of and then she gets involved. so she's not like the innocent person sitting by the side, you and you know, with tears in her eyes. she's aer. that was very much involved. she was playing up the sexist stuff heavy and as soon as i brought this up, all of a sudden, as you probably noticed, it stopped. i'm the only one that's willing to talk about his problems. i mean, what he did and what he has gone through i think is frankly terrible especially if she wants to play the woman card. >> what does it mean to play the woman card in your view? >> she's playing it. she is pandering, she is pandering to the public and she's pandering to women. and when she did it with me, she talked about sexist and i said, me? i have more respect for women by
far than hillary clinton has. >> and yesterday at a town hall in new hampshire, clinton was repeatedly confronted by a woman, later identified as a republican state legislator, about rape allegations against president clinton. >> wait a minute, i'm not going to take your question because other people have been waiting. yes, right here, we'll bring you a microphone. here we go. here we go. [ inaudible comments from audience ]. >> okay, let me see. right back there, this man right there, here we go, right there. you are very rude and i'm not going to ever call on you. thank you. >> there you go. presidential campaigns are beginning to release their fund-raising totals for the final quarter of last year and
the money raised on the democratic side is looking like a close one. bernie sanders' campaign reported raising more than $33 million in the final three months of the year, just $4 million short of hillary clinton's haul over the same period. sanders' overall fund-raising total for 2015 was $73 million. he'll head into the new year just $10 million behind clinton in terms of cash on hand. the sanders campaign says its 2.5 million donations over the past year broke the record set four years ago by president obama's re-election campaign. small contributions made up the vast majority of all the money sanders raised. the average donation over the past three month was about $7. the volume of small donations means about 99.9% of his spearers may in fact give again because they have not yet reached the legal maximum donation. here's sanders talking about his campaign's fund-raising prowess yesterday. >> look, i think that people are
tired of establishment politics and establishment economics and one of you, the manifestations of that is the kind of incredible fund-raising that we've been doing in terms of small individual donations. we have 2.5 million small individual contribution style campaign that is more than any campaign in the history of the united states of america and i think that speaks to the enthusiasm and support that we're getting at the grassroots. >> all eyes are on oregon this morning after a group of protesters took over a federal wildlife refuge this weekend. the protesters at least one of which is armed are being led by ammon bundy, the son of clive bundy, known for his 2014 standoff with federal authorities over grazing rights. the protesters are vowing to stay at the facility indefini indefinitely in order to highlight ranchers rights. they held a protest saturday.
the attorney says there report to federal prison today but that hasn't stopped the standoff. >> we are here only to promote the constitution, the supreme law of the land, and to help the people reestablish their rights. >> the sheriff has warned people to stay away from the refuge. at least one local school district has canceled classes this week, citing security concerns. just back from vacation, president obama has gun control at the top of his agenda this week. nbc news has learned the president is expected to announce a new set of executive actions tomorrow in an effort to tighten federal gun laws. later today, he'll meet with attorney general loretta lynch to discuss what steps he can take legally in areas like background checks and the so-called gun show loophole. he'll also participate in a live televised town hall meeting on thursday to discuss gun violence in the u.s. meanwhile, republican presidential candidates are already speaking out claiming
the president is once again overstepping his authority with some vowing to undo whatever action he takes. >> this president is a petulant child. whenever he can't get what he wants because quite family the american people rejected his agenda turning the house and the senate over to the republicans, now this president wants to act as if he's a king, as if he's a dictator. the fact is if he wants to make changes to the laws, go to congress and convince the congress that they're necessary but this is going to be another illegal executive action which i'm sure will be rejected by the courts and when i become president will be stricken from executive action by executive action i'll take. >> there's an assault on the second amendment. you know, obama's going to do an executive order and really knock the hell out of it. you know that. no, you see it. they've announced it. so it will go through the court system for years, well it should be overturned, like so many of -- he can't get anybody to do what he wants him to do. you know, the system is supposed to be you get the democrats, you
get the republicans, you get -- and you make deals, right? he can't do that. he can't do that. so he's going to sign another executive order having to do with the second amendment, having to do with guns. i will veto that. i will unsign that so fast, so fast. still ahead here on "way too early" the nfl playoff picture is finally set. the matchups, plus complete highlights. and carly fiorina calls it tongue-in-cheek but twitter called it pandering. did the presidential candidate turn her back on her alma mater to score political points? those stories and a check on weather when "way too early" on this monday morning comes right back.

presidential candidate carly fiorina is defending a tweet that sparked accusations of pandering online, before friday's rose bowl game between the hawkeyes and stanford's cardinal the republican presidential candidate tweeted "love my alma mater but rooting for the hawkeyes win today. it wasn't lost on anyone she was ditching her alma mater for the favorite team of those voting in the iowa caucuses in a month. yesterday she was pressed on the issue. >> oh for heaven sakes, dana, can't a girl ever have a little bit of fun? that was a tongue-in-cheek tweet which the people of iowa understand because i was asked over and over again in iowa, having attended a hawkeye tailgate i was asked. they knew my heart was torn. you would think, based on this reaction that i had said something really troefsi icontr you know like isis is a jv team or this demonstration was the result of a video. let's just say'biggest mistake i make is a tongue-in-cheek tweet about a rose bowl the american people will sleep safely when i am president of the united states. >> we should point out iowa
lost, iowa was trounced by stanford 35-0 and guess who was blamed, carly fiorina, even sparking #carlycurse. new jersey governor chris christie got an unusual question on the campaign trail in new hampshire. he's currently getting heat back home for his decision to extend new jersey's bear hunt and he was asked about it last night. >> what would be your federal policy on the environment, given the fact that you've authorized the bear hunt in northern new jersey and extended it for the past three years, much to the opposition of many of your constituents in northern new jersey. >> i saw a picture today of a big black bear sleeping in a tree in the middle of a neighborhood in summit, new jersey. what's happened is new jersey has been overrun by black bears. we've been overrun, they're coming into neighborhoods, they're coming into homes. i don't have a federal bear hunt policy. i haven't thought about it and
i'm not trying to make fun. i just, i'm being honest with you, i haven't thought about that but i would not back off for one second from what i've done as governor of new jersey. i think it's been the right thing. >> as for the bear kristi referred to, authorities let it be, it eventually came down and wandered back into the woods on its own. finally the fantasy sports sites draft kings and fan duel are fighting to stay in business in new york states after eric schneiderman amended the lawsuit against the companies last week asking they give back all the money they made in the state and what could amount to millions. lawyers for the companies will face off in appeals court today to determine whether they can continue to operate until the case goes to trial. new york's attorney general claims the companies are running an illegal gambling operation which of course they both deny. shiba, back to you. >> a really interesting development there. louis, thank you so much. happy new year to you as well. that does it for me and "way too early." coming up on "morning joe" donald trump rides into the new year in front of 13,000 in
mississippi, plus we'll have a look at his first television ad of the campaign. and bill clinton hitting the campaign trail in new hampshire, the former president will appear just 20 miles from trump's event with the two already locking horns. and presidential candidate mike huckabee says he'll hold 150 events in iowa this morning, he'll join joe and mika this morning to talk about it. that and much more coming up next on "morning joe." it's a fact. kind of like reunions equal blatant lying. the company is actually doing really well on, on social media. oh that's interesting. i - i started social media. oh! it was my...baby. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem.
for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here.
with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax constipated? use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief at ally bank no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like ordering wine equals pretending to know wine. pinot noir, which means peanut of the night.
