tv Way Too Early MSNBC April 20, 2016 2:30am-3:01am PDT
i'm chris jansing. new york belongs to donald trump and hillary clinton. the presidential front-runners locked down big wins that could set the tone for a final sprint to the general election. first, on the republican side, the clock had barely struck 9:00 when the nbc decision desk called it a quote, significant win for the real estate giant and first-time politician. trump crushed his opponents by winning 61% of the vote. john kasich beats ted cruz by ten points for the second spot. that means trump walks away with an overwhelming majority of the state's 95 delegates and steps ever closer to the 1,237 needed to clinch the nomination. hillary clinton meanwhile was declared the winner on the democratic side taking home 58%. she beat bernie sanders by 16 percentage points. she too is closing in on the magic number of delegates to finally put the primary behind her. and turn her attention to november. donald trump won a crushing
victory last night. his first majority win from the voters. he says know him best. new york republican primary voters said bringing change was the most important to them. followed by sharing their values and telling it like it is. trump showed strength among working class voters taking 65% of those without a college education, but he won a majority of those with a college degree. a group he struggled with in some places. despite recent polling suggesting deep rooted problems, donald trump won resoundingly among women, 57%. yesterday's vote gave trump a serious boost in his delegate margin adding 88 so far, making his lead over ted cruz 844 to 559. he took home to the podium last night to sinatra's "new york new york" and said he's impossible to catch in the delegate race. >> we don't have much of a race anymore based on what i'm seeing on television. senator cruz is just about mathematically eliminated.
we have won millions of more votes than senator cruz. millions and millions of more votes than governor kasich. we have won and now especially after tonight close to 300 delegates more than senator cruz. we're really, really rocking. it's really nice to win the delegates with the votes, you know? it's really nice. we'll be going into the convention no matter what happens and i think we'll go in so strong. over the next number of weeks we just saw a poll come out of california which is an unbelievable poll. but we're going to go into the convention, i think as the winner. but nobody can take an election away with the way they're doing it in the republican party. i have great, great admiration and praise for the city of new york and the state of new york. i can think of nowhere that i
would rather have this victory. >> ohio governor john kasich celebrated a small win last night after coming in second place in the primary. kasich came away with a handful of delegates. as "new york" magazine points out donald trump only lost one place in new york -- his home. manhattan. "the new york times" has created a block by block breakdown showing election results. kasich managing to beat trump in new york's 12th congressional district which includes most of manhattan's east side as well as trump tower. according to nbc news exit polling, 37% of new york republican primary voters would definitely vote for kasich if he's the nominee in november. now the ohio governor is looking ahead to contests in maryland and pennsylvania where he's spent much of the day yesterday. while in annapolis he mocked trump for recent campaign promises. >> these simplistic solutions to the problems that we have, i was in pittsburgh today. you know trump was in there, you know what he said? i'm going to bring the steel industry back to pittsburgh.
i'm like, okay, great. you know what? everybody that lives in pittsburgh is going to be a billionaire. i'm not going to tell you how i'm going to do it, i'm just telling you by the way. everybody here is going to own their own hotel. it's great, isn't it? the other guys have never accomplished anything. so what are we going to do, drift? >> senator ted cruz finished a dismal third, tormented everywhere he went about his comments about new york values. his campaign had hoped to pick off a couple of delegates but as of this moment, he's been blanked. a "new york times" street levels maps shows some heavily jewish neighborhoods where cruz did spend some time campaigning. 40% of republican voters said they wouldn't vote for him at all. cruz hadn't campaigned in the state in days and he spoke last night in philadelphia, choosing an interesting comparison as he addressed a small crowd. >> the people in state after state have made it clear. they cry out for a new path.
this is the year of the outsider. i'm an outsider. bernie sanders is an outsider. both with the same diagnosis, but both with very different paths to healing. millions of americans have chosen one of these outsiders. our campaigns don't find our fuel in bundlers and special interests. but rather directly from the people. >> the trail doesn't get much better for cruz in pennsylvania. according to recent polls the campaign is looking ahead to indiana and other western states. let's turn back to the democrats now and hillary clinton's resounding victory over bernie sanders. she picked up 177 delegates in her adopted home state and senator sanders picked up 105. clinton is under 80% of the way needed to clinch the nomination. and shortly after new york was called in her favor last night,
she proclaimed that the democratic primary race is now nearing the end and victory is in sight. >> today you proved once again there's no place like home. [ cheers and applause ] you know, in this campaign, we have won in every region of the country. from the north, to the south, to the east, to the west. but this one's personal. and to all the people who supported senator sanders i believe there is much more that unites us than divides us. we started this race not far from here on roosevelt island and tonight, a little less than a year later the race for the democratic nomination is in the
homestretch and victory is in sight. donald trump and ted cruz -- [ audience boos ] -- are pushing a vision for america that's divisive and frankly dangerous. promising to round up millions of immigrants. threatening to ban all muslims from entering the country. planning to treat american muslims like criminals. these things go against everything america stands for. >> clinton easily beat bernie sanders despite being outspent in new york by nearly $3 million. the sanders campaign spent by far the most money in the state of any candidate in the race. and after delivering a speech last night in pennsylvania as the votes were still being tallied, sanders flew back to his home state of vermont
without any traveling press. touching down in burlington, he made a hastily announced news conference and vowed to stay in the race and his campaign said there's still a path forward. >> so we lost tonight. there are five primaries next week. we think we'll do well. and we have a path toward victory which we are going to fight to maintain. >> well, i mean, if you look -- obviously the big state here is california. i mean, big -- a big win here will get you a lot of delegates. oregon should be good for the senator. these states, you know, we have won all the states around these states so these states would seem to be prime territory for the senator. the senator has been increasingly doing well with latinos all across the country, so new mexico is in play. indiana a state he'll do well in. it's possible to run all of these states. new jersey has a lot of delegates.
i mean, if you look a lot of delegates on the board. >> according to news news exit polls clinton was dominant among those who wanted someone with experience. as for the younger voters, most said they'd vote for clinton and 20% said they would not vote for her in november. meanwhile, most democratic primary voters yesterday said that both sanders and clinton are honest and trustworthy. 81% for sander, 60% for clinton. in a continuing pattern in the gop contest this year, gred's republican -- yesterday's republican primary set a record for turnout besting the 2008 record by nearly 200,000 votes. however, the democrats appear to have fallen short of beating their record and hillary clinton has received fewer votes than she did that year. but clinton's vote total doubled
donald trump's yesterday and they finished 200,000 votes behind bernie sanders which might cast doubt he can win in the general election. democrats have a two to one advantage over the republicans. meanwhile t sanders campaign is crying foul after widespread complaints about faulty voting machines to inadequate staffing to purged voter rolls. they released a statement that read, from long lines and dramatic understaffing to long time voters being forced to cast provisional ballots and thousands of registered new yorkers being dropped from the rolls, what's happening today is a disgrace. new york city mayor and clinton backer bill de blasio acknowledged reports of the issues saying, quote, the perception that numerous voters may have been disenfranchised undermines the integrity of the electoral process and must be
fixed. the new york city controller announced that his office would undertake an audit of the board of elections. the first criminal charges connected to the flint, michigan, water crisis are expected to be announced today. three could be charged, law enforcement sources tell our affiliate. cork to the associated press, the charges include violating the michigan drinking water law, destruction of utility property and evidence tampering. to demonstrate that the tap water is safe to drink when filtered, governor snyder drank some of it himself and he took some to go and says he'll drink it for the next 30 days. flint's mayor however was hardly impressed. >> lucky for him that he can fie drinking it when it wasn't filtered. what i'm here to say is if the governor really wanted to know what it was like to deal with the situation we're in, then
instead of saying he'll drink filtered water for 30 days he needs to come and stay here for 30 days and live with us and see what it's like to have to use bottled or filtered water when you want to cook and when you want to drink and when you want to brush your teeth. that's what he needs to see. we still can't bathe with this water. there are a lot of things we can't do. we can't shower with this water. drinking filtered water does not impress us. >> flint's mayor is advising residents not to drink the water even if it's filtered. all this happened on the same day that a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by several residents ruling that the case is a state matter. this morning, a 6.1 magnitude aftershock has struck off the coast of ecuador. it comes as the death toll from the massive quake has climbed to more than 500. according to the attorney general, 525 people have died following the 7.8 magnitude quake. the country's president said it
could cost as much as $3 billion to rebuild, telling reporters yesterday, quote, it will be a long battle. and still ahead, the storm that left much of houston under water is finally on the move but flood advisories are still in effect for some areas. bill karins has the forecast. and money talks. new information on the campaign to put a woman on the $10 bill including the american icon that the treasury secretary initially had in mind.

hours after mcgregor's announcement, ufc president dana white told espn the 27-year-old fighter is off the card for ufc 200 after refusing to interrupt his training overseas and attend mandated promotional events in las vegas. >> we pulled connor mcgregor from ufc 200 and working on other fights right now. he did not want to come to las vegas and film the commercial or be a part of any of the marketing that we have. he's in iceland training. that's not -- it's not possible. so he put out that tweet, you know, is mcgregor retiring? only he can answer that question. i don't know. but he's not fighting at ufc 200. >> this morning it's unclear if mcgregor will fight again. turning now to the nfl where embattled quarterback johnny manziel released a statement, quote, i'm hoping to take care of the issues in front of me right now so i can focus on what i have to do if i want to play in 2016. manziel has made negative headlines for his off the field
behavior since he days at texas a&m and he was released by our cleveland browns. last month, the dog pound after a pair of troubling seasons -- that's one way to put it. but it only seems to have gotten worse for the young player. manziel has now reportedly lost his endorsement deal with nike. the latest sponsorship hit following nissan, mcdonald's, snickers and muscle farm. earlier last winter, he was dumped by lebron james' marketing company and also yesterday, agent drew rosenhaus terminated his representation of manziel. the dallas county district attorney's office says it will present his assault case to the grand jury tomorrow. now to action on the nba court. in memphis, the spurs jump out the the 2-0 lead after holding the grizzlies to the low 68 points in the first round match-up. san antonio scored 94. in atlanta the hawks jumped out to the 21 point lead and never looked back.
swooping -- sweeping first two games against the celtic last night. but while the hawks were on point on the court, their mascot missed the mark while performing a balancing act in the stands. ow! that's a hard landing on that railing. ouch. let's get a check on your weather now with nbc meteorologist bill karins. standing upright. >> you know, because chris, you do all the reporting and all the anchoring, but your loyalty to cleveland is your greatest attribute. >> it's weird. >> or my biggest folly. >> most people would say, shut that door and lock it behind them, but not you. let's talk about the storms this morning. we watched them overnight. now over the top of waco, headed to the flood zone. we'll show you more aerial picture, the water in houston doesn't flow out. it's very flat, the water takes a long time to head out into the gulf.
not like areas where hills or mountains and the water will rush down. the stagnant water will be here for a couple of weeks. the worst of it is over. you can imagine what the insurance claims and all this work is like over the next month or two. so let's take you to the radar again. as far as later today, we get the storms headed for houston and san antonio and that line will die out as it approaches louisiana. a new round of thunderstorms will form in lubbock to abilene and you can get some minor severe weather. the eastern half of the country has been gorgeous for seven days and the west has been incredibly warm and all the rain is in the middle of the nation. st. louis, bring your umbrella with you. the gorgeous weather continues. until friday night it will be the first chance of rain in new york city in ten days. >> wow. this is good news. >> it has been good news. >> bill karins, thank you. how close did the government come to ending the production of the penny? plus, how many times can
b. anthony the new face of the $10 bill and he planned to us is spend the production of the penny -- suspend the production of the penny also. the treasury instead asked the public to choose who the new female face of the bill should be. eliminating hamilton. but that was before the rise of the grammy and pulitzer prize winning musical and lew got an earful of the musical "hamilton" and they have suggested replacing jackson on the $20 bill instead. a final decision is expected any day now. we have to wait for it, chris. now, former 2016 republican presidential candidate dr. ben carson stopped by the daily show last night to poke a little fun at himself and host trevor noah played his fictitious strange twin. >> you're a surgeon sworn to do
no harm, but a fierce advocate for gun rights. do you feel that guns should have more safety measures? >> guns already have a lot of safety measures. the real question is do we believe in the constitution? and in the second amendment. and the right to keep and to bear arms. >> we need to ask ourselves why do we place so many restrictions on guns? they let you do anything you want with a knife. that's pretty much my whole job. see a patient get in there, knife around a little bit. it turns out all they had was a cold. oops. >> you can see why he's the evil twin. he's a cut-up. >> but a twin nonetheless. >> trevor noah is good there.
finally this morning, house speaker ryan made his first appearance on a late show ever last night. the republican joined stephen colbert by satellite and he was only asked one question. >> yes or no, would you accept the nomination? >> no, stephen, i have said i do not want nor would i accept the republican nomination. >> got it. so you're considering the nomination? >> no, i'm not. >> okay, i'll give you some time to mull this one over. how about now? >> still no. >> so that's a maybe? >> no, it's a no. >> like a no no? or one of those no, i don't want to be speaker of the house but i'll accept it if you give it to me nos? >> it's a no no. >> and two no nos make a yes? >> no, they make a firmer no, period. >> okay. period. but if i add two more periods it becomes an ellipsis, so possibly?
>> so no, let me say it in clear english. no! >> okay. how about clear german? >> nein. >> clear russian? >> nyet. >> wow. you seem to know a lot of foreign languages. that kind of international experience will really come in handy if you decide to accept the republican nomination, sir. >> great attempt by colbert there. that went on for another minute. the answer, of course remained no. chris, that's all i've got. >> but louis burgdorf, would you accept the nomination? >> probably not. >> but that's a not exactly unequivocal is it? >> no. >> that's going to go it for me on "way too early." coming up "morning joe" the empire strikes back. tom brokaw and chuck todd, full analysis next, on "morning joe."
