3:00 am
our amex helped us fill the orders. just like that. another step on the journey. will you be ready when growth presents itself? realize your buying power at . >> happy friday. we have kind of a great show planned for tonight's show, we are looking ahead to the wyoming caucuses tomorrow on the democratic side of the presidential case. bernie sanders has turned out really good at caucuses. ahead into wyoming there have been 12 caucuses overall on the democratic side. of the 12, hillary clinton won the first two in iowa and nevada. since then, bernie sanders won ten straight caucuses. so senator sanders is keeping an eye on wyoming. spacex miraculously ended their rocket engine on oa ship.
3:01 am
the single best thing about the footage is how nuts they go over the fact they did it. we have interesting rock an roll and political news for a real 81 dog in republican politics. we've also got son unexpected democratic political news tonight that is making a lot of democrats across the country really happy. really relieved including some news that deriefbed from our james sanders interview. lots going on lots ahead tonight. we start tonight with news that has what i consider to be a grand canyon effect. have you ever been to the grand canyon? everybody says it's awesome. it's amazing. it will proceed your mind. have you seen pick of the grand canyon? yes, it looks very pretty. very impressed. here's the thing about the grand canyon, though. no matter how much you have heard, no matter how prepared
3:02 am
you are to be wowed or overwhelmed from your first view in person. when you go there for the first time and look at it in person, it turns out, i promise you, that you are not prepared for what you are about to see. there is nothing you can see in any lange to prepare a person for the grand canyon. it is so much better than anybody can describe to ub in word or a pick. it's better tan anyone says. honestly, if you have never seen the grand canyon and you have aniability, go see it. make it a plan for sometime between now and the end of your life to go. it is so much better than you think and so the grand canyon effects. did you see these headlines today? this paul ryan video.
3:03 am
paul ryan for president, election videos if you saw the headline, you get the story, house speaker john ryan has a video. i get. it's simple. you see headlines like this, left lane blogs, right lane blogs, you think, okay, i got the point. not sure i need to see it. but behold, for this news story, of all things, there is a bit of a grand canyonesque. you actually do have to see it. because even if you believe all these headlines, if you have absorbed this information, so you therefore understand that paul ryan has done something that makes it seem like you may be running for president. having that information. believeing that information, does not do it justice. you actually have to look at it. just look at it. what is this?
3:04 am
what is this for, if it is not someone running for president. not editing it in anyway, it's like 40-some seconds. stand on the rim of this and peer into this scenic of this. just watch this. >> what really bothers me the most in politics these days is this notion of identity politics, that we're going to win elections by dividing people, rather than inspiring people on our common ideals and culture on the things that should unify us. we all want to prosper and be healthy. we want people to reach their potential. now, liberals who are concerned will disagree. no problem, that's what this is all about. so let's have a battle of ideas, a contest of who's ideas are better and why their ideas are bette
3:05 am
better. >> that is not only obviously a presidential campaign ad. >> that is one of the better presidential campaign ads we have seen from any of the republican campaigns this year. now, i guess here's the supposed caveat, if you are speaker of the house, it's not out of the question that you might make a video about you being speaker of the house. i gets it. this isn't the first speaker of the house video. speaker of the house videos usually are like this. >> this sits on my office in my coffee table, because this is me. this is what i do all day. it winds me up every 15 minutes. no, i got to go to work. >> every 15, 30 minutes, they line me up. i do my thing.
3:06 am
so, yes, people involve the job of speaker of the house and make more videos to humanize themselves and tell you what they're like as a speaker. it's like the symbol monkey thing. or there was that long video of how he grinds his turkey. >> that is a video. what john ryan did is i am running for president video or wouldn't it be awesome if i was president video? and speaker ryan says he overtly is not doing that, he is not running for president. he told john harwood on march 16th, quote, i'm not running for president. his spokesperson then backed it up. the speaker is grateful for the support, but he is not interested. paul ryan went to israel. he was there last week. he told reporters, quote, i decided not the run for president. he repeated it on talk radio.
3:07 am
i think you need to run for president if you're going to be president. i am fought running for president. end of story. if that sounds familiar from paul ryan saying stuff like that is exactly how he got his current job, which is speaker of the house, which is something he also said he did not want. >> are you running for speaker? >> i am fought. >> why not? >> because i don't want to be speaker. >> that was the gay boehner, monkey guy, quit. paul ryan, are you going to run for speaker? i'm not, why not? because i don't want to be speaker. people nevertheless kept asking. a couple weeks later hrks efollowed up with a formal statement. while i am grateful for the encourage. i have received, i will not be candidate. they said thereafter, quote, chairman ryan appreciates the support he is getting from his colleagues, but he is still not running for speaker. definitely fought running for speaker. just like he's fought running for president right now, now that he is speaker.
3:08 am
but after saying no, after writing no, after his spokes people say no on his behalf, back in the time when he was absolutely not wanting to be speaker of the house, no interest, wouldn't do it, on october 20th of last year the answer actually from him ended up being, yes, yes, i will be house speaker. by playing hard to get for so long, saying he didn't want it for so long, he basically maneuvered himself into enough political capital to be able to say, yes, he would do it. with conditions. he would only reluctantly be speaker, he made it so clear, he reluctantly agreed if he didn't have to lobby for it. do any negotiating for it, he didn't have to meet with anybody and talk to them about it or have a hard fight for i. he literally said he wanted all the house republicans to agree to consense on the fact that they would make him speaker without him having to actually have a fight for i. so he boifk basicao
3:09 am
be speaker by say, no, no, no, no, well, no, if you beg me, then, yes. now, beg me. >> what i toll members is, if you can agree to these requests, and if i can truly be a unifying figure, then i will gladly serve. and if i'm not unifying, that will be fine as well. i'll be happy to stay where i am at the ways an means committee. should they agree with these request,en the i am happy and i am willing to get to work. >> nice work, right? that is how he became speaker of the house. third most powerful in line to the president. he gets to run congress, he got that gig by setting up his own party to beg him to do it and choose unanimously without him having to fight for it. >> it's not like there weren't other people running from the gig. we ended up with a list of 26
3:10 am
people fought named paul ryan actively campaigning for the gig, putting their hat in the ring, mentioned if us ask, or trying to round up support behind the scenes and lots of people are running and trying to be speaker him but for whatever reason they were all somehow dissatisfied with the broader republican party. sound familiar? a field of candidates, the republican party find none of them acceptable. paul ryan floating. he keeps saying he doesn't want the job. >> that makes him all the more attractive, right? he's not running. he keeps saying he's fought running. but with antics like this video that his office put out today, he is clearly, if not keeping himself in contention, putting himself in contention. this is a presidential campaign ad. it is designed to make him look
3:11 am
like a presidential campaign contender even as he says he is not running. this is not a crazy dam bit. among the people who are running on the republican side. we now know the way their contest is going to end. it's starting to be a foregone conclusion. yes, there are more statewide contests in new york, california, other big states, regardless of almost any conceivable scenario in the remaining states, we know what will happen on the republican side. nobody will get the convention, assured of it. we know that. we also know that donald trump will assuredly be in the lead when the convention starts. if terms of pledge delegates, almost assuredly donald trump will be in the lead headed into that convention, neither he nor anyone will have enough delegates to win. in a normal 84, one might accept the clear leader of the race to be anointed nominee.
3:12 am
but there are two reasons why the republicans look like they will not do that for donald trump. one is the issue of who he is personally and how he rubs people the wrong way. i don't mean it in criticism, i mean it what is empirically testament about him. if you enjoy donald trump as a presidential nominee. look at this from the associated press this week. americans overwhelmingly view trump negatively. in the lead the write up is devastating. seven if ten people, including close to half of republican voters have an unfavorable view of donald trump. it's an opinion shared by majorities of men, women, young and olding conservative and moderate and liberal, white, hispanic and blacks. even in the south. he won gop decisively, 70% view him unfavorable. 60% of all registered voters. 31% of republicans say they
3:13 am
definitely wouldn't vote for donald trump. all that getting worse overtime t. number of americans viewing him unfavorable has rinse since mid-february 10 percentage points. so if for no other reason, they do not want a pickup. they don't have to. if he doesn't win a majority of pledge delegates. they really don't have to. so that is reason one. reason two, we will talk about later on in the show. it has turned into a fiasco as we speak in one important state. we will have a live report from that in just a meanwhile. the republican party will have to pick their nominee. ted cruz thinks the party will have to go through the violently disruptive and suicidal process of throwing out the leading
3:14 am
candidate from tear primary so they can pick ted cruz instead, who let's be honest about it is more likely to get shell lacked in a general election than donald trump is. will they do that as a party to pick ted cruz? reasonably speaking, you'd this i the republican party would only do that and not take the loss if they thought they'd ends up with a candidate in november. the guy they believe could win has always been paul ryan for the republican party. speaker of the house. the difference now the difference today, this video he is campaigning now for that gig. of course, he says he is in the running. but that's how he campaigned for speaker as well him it might work if you can get it? we'll be right back.

show me more like this. show me "previously watched." what's recommended for me. x1 makes it easy to find what you love. call or go online and switch to x1. only with xfinity.
3:17 am
zplmplts. >> you're a guy, you would spend a good portion of your life doing videos straight to camera, where you hold forth on a variety of subjects and post-them to youtube. one way to spice it up, go to visual interest, is to make sure you have very interesting facial hair. another way to make it interesting is to wildly vary your head wear, wear lots of different hats. >> that is the online strategy of this. sometimes a shirt lift, youtube star, who was, until this week in the running to be me about people put forth today as a potential delegate for the fifth conditioningal district in colorado, which is picking its dell got as today.
3:18 am
the trump campaign wanted him, that guy from youtube, to be one of tear colorado delegates. but within they put out tear slate of possible delegates, they spelled the guy's name wrong, miss spelled his name. he is 53 on the list. we'll tell you which one is the extra one. but that's actually a step up from the way the trump campaign has otherwise been failing in trying to get its delegates. in colorado's congressional district football seven, they put out a slate there with three names on it to find those three names and vote for those three donald trump people on their ballot t. problem is, two of those three names were not on the bal lot. even that, the step up from sixth congress am districts last fwhekd which the donald trump campaign did not get it together enough to give anybody any names or run a slate of delegates whatsoever, that took care of the spelling errors.
3:19 am
even that was a step up from the washington state organizing the trump campaign did today, in which they sent an e-mail to delegate candidates, not in washington state, but in washington, d.c., 3,000 miles away. oh, one last thing about that e-mail the filing deadline to be a delegate candidate was two days ago. they only sent the e-mail telling people to sign up today. tada! it turns out the donald trump for president campaign is terrible at this. and colorado has been a case study if just how terrible they are at it. and tonight, just within the last hour, we have learned that donald trump before today had already lost 18 of 18 possible colorado delegates to ted cruz just in the past hour, we have learned that donald trump has just lost three more. which means that in all of colorado's congressional districts, the trump campaign has gone o for 21.
3:20 am
ted cruz won the majority on offer in colorado. ted cruz has won another state. nbc news is calling colorado nice for ted cruz. >> the very own delegate hunter. we are in colorado springs covering this republican race. jacob, what happened here? it sounds like the trump campaign like set itself on fire and couldn't find a pool of water to jump into to put it out? >> reporter: i guess the official sports terminology would be an over, rachel, o for everything for donald trump here. and i don't think it's as much political malpractice as perhaps just not a keen understanding of what's going on out here and in fairness to the trump campaign, listen the cruz campaign was very well organized out here. they have one more shot at this tomorrow to winning the entire setting. not letting trump win one of
3:21 am
these things him chuck todd said today, it has been decades, he showed up here for the colorado congressional district because this thing didn't matter before this year. don't forget. the 1237 delegates donald trump needs to clinch this first ballot will most likely require the unbound delegates coming out of this state, wyoming, pennsylvania and, which ted cruz cleaned up last weekend. i was there for that as well t. bottom line is cruz is just doing a way better job of organizing, you can say what the trump campaign is doing in these states? >> watching them get over in all of these congressional districts in colorado over these last few days has been remarkable. o for 21, that's called shooting the moon. it's almost hard to do. tomorrow there is another big bunch of delegates. 13 being selected at the state convention. that's also in colorado springs. any signs of any improved effort or organizing presence for tomorrow or is it possible trump will go o for 34.
3:22 am
>> reporter: as you said, what happened last night is any -- i'll just answer, o for 34 seems like it could be likely. our colleague said if they get one delegate in this state, that is an overachievement for the trump campaign. what we are going to see tomorrow is 6,000 dem gather on the floor of the hockey arena. 600 candidates running for the 13 remaining delegate slats. unbelievably. they will go up there ten second each and make a pitch. ted cruz, they will only go there ten seconds. he will go up there and talk to the assembled 6,000. he would put out the slate and today, yesterday and in the previous congressional districts, conventions out here, again, all expectations are the cruz campaign will clean up just like he said. >> thank you for covering this stuff in fascinating trail. thanks for keeping us apprised tonight. >> you got it, rachel. >> it is amazing 600 people will
3:23 am
be vying for those remaining delegate spots. they each get ten seconds at the microphone. if you had ten seconds to become a political star, what would you say? we'll be right back. when you think about success, what does it look like? is it becoming a better professor by being a more adventurous student? is it one day giving your daughter the opportunity she deserves? is it finally witnessing all the artistic wonders of the natural world? whatever your definition of success is, helping you pursue it, is ours. t-i-a-a.
3:24 am
wyou could just forget frthe beach wedding... and the beach booty... you could just book a different resort. like in alaska. they've got igloos. working on my feet all day gave min my lower back but now, i step on this machine and get my number which matches my dr. scholl's custom fit orthotic inserts. now i get immediate relief from my foot pain. my lower back pain. find a machine at >> well, here's an incredible thing that happened today. you just have to see it. it's amazing, elon musk company spacex successfully launched a spacecraft at the space station, carrying food and experiments for the astronauts up there on the space station. >> that was not the exciting thing i want to show you. the other big question other
3:25 am
than the success of that mission to the space station was whether spacex would finally be able send a rocket into space and then bring it back down and land it safely and securely on a ship on a drone shipable remote pilot ship in the atlantic ocean. the reason they want to do this is then spacex could reuse that rocket and reusable rockets are the key to making space travel affordable. so spacex so far struck out. they have been close, january of last year. the rocket came hurdling into a ship. in april it's slower, more controlled. managed to cut down on the barge. you can see, it's not quite straight. it's at an angle that doesn't look good, then, the biggest portion. a couple months ago, for a couple seconds, it looked like
3:26 am
success. looks like the studio gut it. watch. >> so close. it landed pretty much upright. one of the legs didn't latch properly the hard landing blew out the camera feed. you can imagine at spacex today the falcon 9 rocket was coming in for a landing. it was a lot of attention, oh, god, not again. here it is, here's the spacex live prod cast as the landing happened. the best part about it. this is incredible.
3:27 am
>> that is the sound of some very, very, very happy spacex employees. the bar across the street from the spacex headquarters with a bisque business right now. part of the reason i work in the right newsroom is that made everyone very cheery. elon musk says he thinks they should be able to ferry astronauts into the space station next year and nasa won't have to pay the russians to keep them anymore. if that is not enough, let me tell you one more thing that, barge, that football size ship, that barge has a name. it's called, quote, of course, i still love you.
3:28 am
the first barge used for the first couple of landing attempts was called just read the instructions. these are all apparently references to something, the sci-fi fans out there, i am looking at you. most of all, they are giant drone ships designed to catch space rockets. now they do. >>

3:32 am
sharp but retorical turn to a place they've never been before, that's when bernie sanders lined up an attack on which he said his opponent hillary clinton was not qualified to be president. in 28 it became barack obama and hillary clinton. they never went there. so that turn in the race caused consternation among democrats, both that night and particularly when it continued into thursday on the cane trail. now as quickly as it started, it appears to have ended. >> i will take bernie sanders over donald trump or ted cruz any time. >> on hillary clinton's worst day, she is better tan ted cruz or donald trump on any day. >> he says let's not use the word unqualified. let's use the word contrast. >> she would be an a better president than any of the
3:33 am
republican candidates. >> she qualifies? >> of course. >> that term breed a lot of democrats this week, it seems like it would damage the prospect in november. that did happen this week, but it is clearly already over. and now, a second big worry for democrats in terms of the democratic primary process, which it also has come to the forum in the last two days, it, too, also may have ended. that possible sigh of relief for democrats across the country is next.
3:34 am
3:35 am
3:36 am
>> this is interesting. new information, look at this. we are still waiting on numbers from some of the candidates. we now know this is some of the 2016 presidential field raised in the month of march. ted cruz's number is proud of that number. this was hillary clinton for the same time period the month of march. and this boring, that's bernie sanders, miles above the rest of the field. bernie sanders raised $44 million last month, more than any other candidate in either party at any point in this election. nobody has come close to bern benefit when it comes to fund
3:37 am
raising in this 2016 campaign and his distance ahead of everybody else in the field on that front is getting bigger, not smaller. bernie sanders is killing it. he has been killing it specifically for the bernie sander's campaign. and one issue that has now come up on the democratic side of the race, not the republican side, is the question of how much these two democratic candidates are willing to use tear power, their polling power to also financially help their fellow democrats who are further down the ticket than they will be if there is a nomination. hillary clinton has raised a lot of money. millions of dollars for a national and state level democrat while she has been running for president this year senator senators raids a ton of money, but not for anyone else. a criticism that he wants to help the party. senator sanders said he would consider raising money for democrats other than himself at
3:38 am
some point. he isn't ready to commit to that. he told me, quote, we'll see. last night i asked his wife jane sanders about this. >> i talked to him about whether or not his prestigious fund raising a as candidate may result in raising money for the dnc the way secretary clinton is. he said, we'll see. >> i guess he wasn't thinking about. he's written a letter already that is going out. his letter to the dfcc has property in more money than anybody else's summer any other year. >> he has money for the campaign the right candidate. >> that answer from jane sanders. she touched on fundraising letters and she described as sort of i think she meant direct donations from his campaign, there is a couple of different things going on there. we have now asked the sanders campaign for more information on the record about senator sanders' financial help for a particular candidate.
3:39 am
none of them in his recent campaign record. so he asked what that record went to. but mrs. sanders also suggested that senator sappeders might be more opened to helping down ticket democrats than he has made a point of publicly. does this signal a change of heart? is the sanders campaign about to start doing something if terms of helping other democrats in the democratic party that they have not done yet in this campaign. which emerged as a point of contention and consternation in the democratic primary. joining us now is the national reporter for the fork times. she has been following the sanders campaign. shelves at a sanders rally in brooklyn, thanks for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> was it cold at the rally? >> i'm from miami. >> you are cold right now? >> sorry. on this issue about spreading the wealth, funding other democrats what are you hearing about the senators campaign about his support for other democrats? >> i talked to the senior
3:40 am
campaign strategist today. he said unequivocally bernie sanders is ready and will always raise money for other democrats. he says he has been doing this for years and echos what sanders, he has been writing the letters for the dfcc. when i asked him more what are you doing right now? what are your plans for right now? he says we have our hands full right now, we are trying to win an election. as you know, he has a lot of work to do. a lot of the money they are spending on is his campaign to get the name out there and what was not a national candidate at the time. so it just really kind of focused on getting people to know who bernie sanders is, that's what they're telling me. >> so the fund kaz raising he is doing is the same fundraising as a senator before he was running as president. he is continuing those same efforts, basically signing letters for the democratic cane committee? >> that's ba i am being told, that's what ehe wants to done. he feels that is kind of supporting this, the party, that
3:41 am
he feels that is him doing the best he can do and that once as soon as he maybe has the nomination or maybe to have a little further down the line, maybe if he kind of knows what is going to be happening in a general election, he might change and physical out what he's going to do there. i kind of pushed his campaign strategist to tell me what he didn't do and they don't like talking about, he said, it continues and says he is a democrat, running as a democrat. he is willing to help democrats in the fall. i think that's kind of their answer about what will happen if he doesn't wait. >> it's still sort of the we'll see? >> it's we'll see in terms of we'll see what happens with this kind of pot of money and how we've learned to fund raise. the kind of the numbers you put up there are after or from 6 million donations from 2 million people. itative gotten this strategy that got them a lot of money. >> that strategy i have been told, they're trying to figure out how they're going to help the democratic party with that particular strategy. he said to me the campaign strategists like to say, said to me, he is willing to always help democrats get money.
3:42 am
so it's a we'll see in kind of how he will help democrats with the specific thing he has learned and getting him all this money. but if you ask them, they do say they are already willing to give to help democrats raise money. >> somebody running for president, you ask them additional things. because hillary clinton has been raising millions of dollars for the dollars along the way while she is running. now she's making it an issue between them, i think it will be a point of political pressure. we'll see. >> we'll see. >> national reporter for the "new york times" follows the sanders campaign. we'll get some to take with you as you go. it's not every day you get your news delivered in a pink cadillac riding in the back. but this is friday fight. so that is how your next news will arrive metaphoric ally in your minds, where you were born to run. we'll be right back.

bruce springsteen had been scheduled to play a concert this sunday in greensburg, north carolina, but today mr. springsteen cancelled in protest of north carolina's new law signed be i the state's attorney general, which okays discrimination in that state against north carolynians that are gay or trajz gender. p. >> if there is a fight against blood and hatred, look for me, i'll be there, when somebody is struggling, look in their eyes. you will see me. that wasn't the statement. that was him quoting tom jokes. if you did have tickets to the springsteen show, you are going to feed a refund. but hold that thought. we got some exclusive notes on
3:46 am
that subject coming up next.
3:47 am
>> we have got some exclusive news tonight related to a story you may have heard about in the past few days out of the deteriorate state of mississippi. the republican governor in mississippi, phil bryant, this week, he signed a new law saying if you are a business in mississippi, it is legal now for you to advertise you will not serve anyone who is gay or transgender. you can put up a sign in your business that says, we don't serve gays here.
3:48 am
under this new phil bryant law, it will be ill local in that state to refuse to serve a free person, if you believe that free person is living in sin with another straight person without a license to do so. in spite of that new law, mississippi governor phil bryant bake the second governor in a few weeks to approve a few law like this, to roll back right to overtly discriminate against gay people and we have some idea how this kind of thing plays out, since north carolina's republican governor signed that state's discrimination law two weeks ago. some of the biggest companies that do business in north carolina have called on that state to repeal the law, paypal cancelled a plan to open a new global operations center in charlotte, north carolina, those hundreds of good paying jobs will not be coming to north carolina, specifically because of that new skrim nation law, film and tv companies have been can selling plans, this new discrimination law is going to end up costing north carolina
3:49 am
actual money, real dollars. and maybe not just from the private sector. over the weekend, the "new york times" reported that federal agencies are often now reviewing north carolina's new discrimination law to see whether the state is now in violation of federal anti-discrimination rules, if so, the state of north carolina can lose not just millions but billions of dollars in federal funding because of this new zriem nation law. that's north carolina. now we can report here exclusively at least two federal agencies are looking to see if mississippi might be in violation. the house of development told us which are aware of the mississippi law and are reviewing it. we a also told a second agency the u.s. department of transportation is also reviewing mississippi's new law, if these federal aviation finds they are in discrimination, then mississippi, too, like north
3:50 am
carolina, they could lose billions of federal dollars, which north carolina cannot afford, but which mississippi desperately cannot afford. yes, mississippi's republican governor continues to defend this new law. he signed as right and fair and constitutional and not discriminatory at all. laws have consequence, including consequences thatf goes might not have imagined. when they find these things. we hear back from more agencies. more of the federal government concerning mississippi or north carolina and how many billions of dollars they may be about to lose for their state. we'll let you know, washington state.
