tv Way Too Early MSNBC March 10, 2016 2:30am-3:01am PST
said -- it's right. i think i said it many months before. she said it, but thanks for copying a very good idea. >> hillary clinton and bernie sanders battle it out on the debate stage once again. the question that clinton refused to answer. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west. this is "way too early." good morning. it's thursday, march 10th. i'm jonathan capehart. a mass shooting in pennsylvania has left five people dead and another three wounded. according to the police, the incident unfolded late last night during a backyard party or cookout in wilkinsburg, the town just east of pittsburgh. evidence points to there being at least two gunmen. according to wpxi in pittsburgh,
police have called this an ambush style attack. four of the victims were found shot on a back porch and pronounced dead at the scene. a fifth was pronounced dead at the hospital. right now now suspects in custody. and now the severe weather that's been blamed on three deaths. the latest victim is a 60-year-old louisiana man who drowned after his car was swept away by floodwaters. states of emergency have been declared in 16 louisiana parishes as parts of this -- of that state, texas, and arkansas get pounded with rain. mandatory evacuations have been ordered for 3,500 homes in bocer city, louisiana. it's a densely populated area and if the water topples the areas it would be devastated. several vehicles including this semi took a chance of crossing the road deluged with water from
the overflowing bayou. the national weather service in shreveport calls the flash flooding historic. at least 80 homes have been flooded. and now let's turn to politics. the republican national committee is suing the state department over communications between former secretary of state hillary clinton and top aides. one lawsuit seeks next messages or blackberry messages between clinton and cheryl mills and jake sullivan. another is asking for electronic messages between nearly a dozen department officials and a number of clinton associates. the state department confirmed that chats and texts can be considered official communication but stopped short of confirms that was so at the time. the suits were called frivolous, but last night in miami, the former secretary of state was asked point blank about the seriousness of ongoing investigations. >> -- gave you permission to
cooperate. president obama -- >> there was no permission to be asked. it had been done by the predecessors. it was permitted. i didn't have to ask anyone. >> if you get indicted will you drop out? >> oh, goodness, that won't happen. i won't answer that question. >> last night's debate in miami came less than 24 hours after bernie sanders upset win in michigan. the focus of the debate was immigration, a key issue for florida voters. they'll go to the polls next today. under pressure from both sanders and moderator jorge ramos, secretary clinton in a break with the obama administration pledged not to support -- deport children and other immigrants with no criminal record. >> when we talk about immigration, the secretary will remember one of the great human tragedies of recent years is children came from honduras where there's probably more violence than almost any place in this country. and they came into this country and i said, welcome those children into this country. secretary clinton said send them back. that's a difference.
>> let me respond again because the misrepresentation can't go unanswered here. i did say we needed to be very concerned about little children coming to this country on their own, very often, many of them not making it. and when they got here, they needed as i have argued for legal counsel, due process. >> can you process tonight you won't deport children, children who are already here? >> i will not deport children. i do not want to deport family member, jorge. >> i happen to agree with president obama on many, many issues. i think he's done a great job as president of the united states. he is wrong on this issue of deportation. i disagree with him on that. so to answer your question, no, i will not deport children from the united states of america. throughout the debate, clinton repeatedly criticized senator sanders for opposing a 2007 bill that would have
created a path to citizenship and on two occasions she even accused him of supporting vigilante minutemen at the border. he denied supporting vigilantes calling it a horrific statement and of course a democratic debate focused on immigration didn't go without a question about front-runner donald trump. >> secretary clinton, is donald trump a racist? >> karen, i'm going to foal lie me friend senator sanders' model here. if i'm so fortunate to be the democratic nominee there will be a lot of time to talk about him. i was the first one to call him out. i called him out when he was calling mexicans rapists. his rhetoric, his demagoguery, his trafficking in prejudice and paranoia has no place in our political system. especially from somebody running for president who couldn't
decide whether or not to disavow the ku klux klan and david duke. >> a new poll from "the washington post" and univision has her ahead of senator sanders by 38 points. for the republicans in florida, another new poll shows donald trump with a towering lead. he's at 43%, more than doubling the state's u.s. senator, marco rubio, who's at 20%. ted cruz from texas sat 16% and john kasich of ohio has 10%. this as rubio struggles to hold his home turf after a national strategy and courting power brokers. "the wall street journal" said he opened his florida office a month ago and trump's operation has been in the state since november. and the rubio campaign isn't airing a single television ad in florida, relying on outside groups that only recently began spending millions of dollars attacking trump and promoting the senator. in his hometown yesterday evening, rubio held a rally in
the end zone of an empty football areyna. a far cry after the surging crowds in south carolina and in his town hall with chuck todd last night, rubio set florida as the bar his campaign must clear. >> it's going to come down to florida for me. it always has in the presidential races. florida going to award 99 delegates all at once. you can win more in florida than across five or seven states in an apportion process. so it was a priority. even if i had done really well in all of the previous states, if i had not done well in florida, that would be trouble for our campaign. so we need to win here that's our priority. we're focused on it like a laser and we'll win. >> also he said he regrets the personal nature of some of his attacks on donald trump and including going after trump's appearance and claiming he has a spray tan and small hands. >> in terms of things that have to do with personal stuff, yeah, at the end of the day, you know what, i'm not entirely proud of that. my kids were embarrassed by it. you know, if i had to do it
again i wouldn't. but not on the other charges. not on the other things. when it comes to fact that he's portraying himself as something he's not, and has done this before throughout his career, this time the stakes are not a worthless $36,000 degree at trump university. the stakes are the greatest nation on earth. look, this is a guy who has offended for a year. he mocked a disabled journalist, a female journalist, every minority group imaginable. use profanity from the stage, that said, yeah, i don't want to be that. if that's what it takes to be president of the united states i don't want to be president. in fact, i know it's not what it take, it's not what we want from the next president. if i had to do it again i would have done that part differently. but not the stuff about his record on business. former candidate jeb bush announced yesterday he will be meeting with three of the four remaining gop candidates before they debate tonight in miami. an aide for bush confirmed bush is meeting with everyone but donald trump.
no word on whether an endorsement is in store. right now ted cruz is polling in third place in florida, but he's opened ten campaign offices deep in what would be called rubio country. yesterday, while campaigning in miami, he introduced his latest endorser to cheers -- former rival carly fiorina. she backed him as a candidate and who could beat both donald trump and hillary clinton. >> there's some people in our party who are saying, donald trump wouldn't be so bad. i mean -- [ audience boos ] >> okay, maybe he's a liberal. maybe he's a fraud, but you know, at least he's a deal maker. we can make deals with him. [ audience boos ] >> here's the thing. the truth is that donald trump and hillary clinton are two sides of the same coin. they're not going to reform the system. they are the system.
>> and we'll hear more from carly fiorina on "morning joe" today. donald trump sparked more controversy in talking about the muslim faith last night. >> do you think islam is at war with the west? >> i think islam hates us. there's something -- there's something there that's a tremendous hatred there. there's a tremendous hatred. we have to get to the bottom of it. there's an unbelievable hatred of us. >> in islam itself? >> you're going to have to figure that out, okay? you'll get another pulitzer, but you have to figure that out. but there's a tremendous hatred. we have to be very vigilant. we have to be very careful. and we can't allow people coming in to this country who have this hatred of the united states. and of people that are not muslim. thousands have begun to pay
their last respects to former first lady nancy reagan. today marks the second full day of mourning and her funeral is set for tomorrow. according to "the washington post," more than 3,000 visitors stopped by the reagan library yesterday. reagan's daughter patty davis said it's comforting to see so many people taking the time to honor her mother. >> she told me once she was not afraid to die. she said i don't want it to hurt. but i'm not afraid to die, i'll see ronnie again. >> nancy reagan will be laid to rest tomorrow next to her husband and former president, ronald reagan. still ahead on "way too early," has john kasich finally joined his republican rivals at the circus? watch what happened when a man who looks like larry david crashed the party. plus, the latest on that state of emergency in louisiana. we'll go live to one of the hardest hit areas. plus, bill has the latest on the forecast. "way too early" comes right back.
they represent blood cells. and if you have afib-an irregular heartbeat that may put you at five times greater risk of stroke they can pool together in the heart, forming a clot that can break free and travel upstream to the brain, where it can block blood flow and cause a stroke. but if you have afib that's not caused by a heart valve problem, pradaxa can help stop clots from forming. pradaxa was even proven superior to warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke, in a clinical trial without the need for regular blood tests. and, in the rare event of an emergency, pradaxa is the only oral blood thinner other than warfarin with a specific reversal treatment to help your body clot normally again. pradaxa is not for people who have had a heart valve replacement. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor.
stopping increases your risk of stroke or blood clots ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before any planned medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, and sometimes, fatal bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding. and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems, stomach ulcers, a bleeding condition, or take certain medicines. side effects with pradaxa can include indigestion, stomach pain, upset or burning. don't just go with the flow. go with pradaxa, the only blood thinner that lowers your risk of stroke better than warfarin and has a specific reversal treatment. talk to your doctor about pradaxa today. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like bill splitting equals nitpicking. but i only had a salad. it was a buffalo chicken salad. salad.
i want to get back to one of our top stories this morning. the historic flooding in parts of louisiana. bill karins is here, but let's start with reporter joel rodgers from our affiliate ktal. he's live in hotten, louisiana. how is it where you are? >> reporter: jonathan, good morning. it is wet. it's rained constantly for the past 48 hours and i'm here in the subdivision, tall timbers. an area hit very much by the hard rain. flooding has been a major factor here. more than 75 homes and vehicles are submerged near the first street of here in tall timbers. large two story houses have water going over the doors and windows. personal belongings are scattered everywhere. neighbors are trying to help each other out, because they're left without power.
as you can see from this video just a breathtaking video as you see water up to the rooftop of many of the houses. and cars some of them you cannot see. some of them you can barely see. it is a big problem here. the flooding, it's affected so many people. like so many other places around this area. and, guys, it will take a while for this water to go down. but first, it has to stop raining. guys, back to you in new york. jonathan? >> all right, thanks very much. let's bring in bill karins. is the rain finished yet? >> no, we are only halfway through this event. this is a rare weather pattern. you experience on it on the east coast with the record highs yesterday. this is how much rain has been falling here and the heaviest rains have been here in northern louisiana. southern arkansas and northeast texas. this area outside of shreveport, we have had reports of up to 16 inches of rain. there's 12 inches there, reports of ten inches there.
this is right across interstate 22 which was shut down for a while yesterday. unfortunately for the region it is still pouring right now. numerous bands of thunderstorms are coming up from the south. you just picked up a foot of rain and another three to six inches this morning with the thunderstorms and the lightning coming to the north. eventually, this will shift a little bit to the east and giving them a break in northern louisiana but then we'll talk about areas of southern mississippi and new orleans under a flood watch. we have 3 to 4 million under warnings right now, an additional three to six today. isolated up to the foot. if we get more significant to historic flooding, jackson, mississippi, down to new orleans. that's where we could see, jonathan, another five to ten inches of rain. that will continue into friday. so we're not done yet. >> all right. bill, thanks very much. let's turn to business now where world markets are watching for a much anticipated announcement from the european central bank on stimulus measures. cnbc's geoff cutmore joins us
from london where he's tracking the market moves ahead of the policy meeting. what's the latest? >> good morning to you, jonathan. well, the expectation here is that the european central bank will deliver more stimulus. right now, the pundits think that probably means we go even further into negative territory on the deposit rate. possibly a ten basis point cut. we are already negative 30 basis points on the rate here. so hard to see what difference it is going to make, but it will be another reason for traders to keep the euro button on the sell position. so keep your eye on the currencies because that could be the main fallout area we see from this rate decision. but it's a big issue for the markets today. one other thing worth bearing in mind, the oil price and the correlation to stocks. very tight correlation of late here. no sign of that breaking down. even though the analysts are telling us they don't think the current rebound we have seen in
the price will last as long as we see oversupply data. one last story to finish on here t president and ceo of the u.s. operation of volkswagen has gone. he has parted ways with the parent company. disagreements over the way negotiations was authorities are going we think is the reason why. like the auto ad says, one slightly used auto executive for sale. back on the market. one careful owner. but has been tested in harsh conditions. back to you. >> that's great. geoff cutmore, live from london, thank you. time now for sports and we begin with the nfl. where in kansas city the chiefs are paying the price for their pursuit of wide receiver jeremy maclin who left the eagles to sign with kansas city late last season. the league has now fined and stripped the team of two draft picks for violating the nfl's anti-tampering policy. the chiefs lose their third round pick in this year's draft
and their sixth round pick next year for improper contact with maclin before the start of last year's free agent period. head coach andy reid was fined $75,000 and the general manager was fined $25,000 and the organization as a whole fined $250,000. meanwhile, recent rumors surrounding brock osweiler and his desire to leave denver appear to have been accurate. the houston texans have reportedly inked a four-year, $72 million deal with the quarterback. originally a second round pick by the broncos in 2012, osweiler started seven games last season and with peyton manning's retirement, the move leaves denver with a gaping hole at qb. also joining osweiler is lamar miller who is reportedly set to sign a four-year contract worth $26 million. turning now to the nba where another night of warriors basketball means another dazzling performance by reigning league mvp steph curry.
>> curry from midcourt. it's good! >> i could do that. the 55-foot buzzer beater is good for three of curry's 12 points in last night's victory over the jazz. the warriors extend their record regular season home winning streak to 46 games. up now, it seems curry can sink any shot on a basketball court and yesterday, we found out he can even do it with a golf club. in a contest with lpga player, lydia coe, he nails this from 94 feet away. no, i can't do that. still ahead, lawmakers in west virginia fight to get raw milk legalized and then get a taste of their own medicine. su.
with the tiger image, the saliva coming off and you got this turning. that's why i need this kind of resolution and computing power. being able to use a pen like this. on the screen directly with the image. it just gives me a different relationship to it. and i can't do that on my mac. this is brilliant for me. ♪ at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in.
now let's get a check on the morning's other headlines and for that we head to louis burgdorf. >> remember that mug shot that sent ladies and gentlemen in a frenzy? the hot convict has been released. he was behind bars on weapons charges and it wasn't long after his mug shot went viral back in 2014 that he started getting modeling offers. yesterday, he posted a picture to instagram with his manager,
captioned i want to thank my family and everybody for all of your support and prayers. i'm overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. i'm ready. all right, on to politics now where bernie sanders showed up at a john kasich rally yesterday, or at least a pretty, pretty good impersonator of the vermont senator did. take a look. >> let me just say this. this is not so much a question. so much as it is a compliment. on behalf of all the american people, i want to thank you for bringing a little class to the republican debates. [ applause ] hold on, let me finish. not talking billionaire class. but regular class. so thank you very much. >> thank you, bernie. thank you very much. >> good luck. >> there they are. >> whoa! a selfie, hold on. i got a bernie vote. >> not as good as larry david,
but i like that kasich welcomed it all in good humor. great story there. finally, some lawmakers in west virginia celebrated lifting the state's ban on raw unpasteurized milk by drinking some and now they're not feeling so well. coincidence? one lawmaker thinks so. he told the local station wsaz that the milk is not to blame. >> i'm not feeling that great. i think it's some sort of bad stomach virus. there's definitely some other colleagues that have similar symptoms that i have been experiencing. i highly doubt raw milk had anything to do with it. in my case. >> he's not looking so good there. the state delegate who passed around the unpasteurized milk to those who wanted to live dangerously last week said it wasn't the milk. scott kadel said people got sick
because the capitol building is a big germ. the state health officials are now investigating, jonathan. i'm sure they'll get to the bottom of how everyone is getting sick there. >> yeah. a big germ in a glass of milk. thanks a lot, louis. that does it for me and "way too early." coming up on "morning joe," new polls from battle grounds florida and ohio. good news for john kasich but really bad news for marco rubio. plus, carly fiorina joins joe and mika to explain why she's supporting ted cruz. and back on the debate stage, hillary clinton and bernie sanders clash in florida. the best moments and the question clinton refused to answer. "morning joe" is just moments away. it took joel silverman years to become a master dog trainer. but only a few commands to master depositing checks at chase atms.

accelerating next. hewlett packard enterprise. michigan was definitely feeling the bern. [ cheers and applause ] and the bern was not just from the water in flint. [ laughter ] bernie sanders stunned the prognosticators by taking michigan after trailing hillary clinton by 21 points in the latest polls. [ applause ] but she took it graciously. here's
