tv With All Due Respect MSNBC April 27, 2016 3:00pm-4:01pm PDT
>> you have to wait and see. >> i totally agree. >> what a time to be alive. >> i just love it. you were literal, it was fun to watch you think in realtime. we'll be back tomorrow. we're all scratching our heads. "with all due respect" starts right now. "with all due respect" to the veeps day etiquette that escalated quickly. hello from washington, d.c. on this very newsy wednesday. ted cruz and donald trump spent the day duelling for media domination.
chris held his own in the news competition cars in indianapolis he short seated the process by naming carly rfiorina as his running mate. >> after a great deal of time and thought. i have come to the conclusion that if i'm nominated to be president of the united states that i will run on a ticket with my vice presidential nominee carly fiorina. >> fiorina also spoke. she took a shot at the republican front-runner, her once and now current rival, donald j. trump billionaire. >> donald trump and hillary clinton are two sides of the same coin. they're both liberal. we know that, but, hillary
clinton, like so many politicians, hillary clinton has made her millions selling access and influence from inside the system. donald trump has made his billions buying people like hillary clinton. >> what does donald trump think of this pick. he gave the planet a pre-buttal window into his thinking. the billionaire was making his sleepy voice victory lap phone calls into some morning shows and reacted to the possibility of fiorina being added to the ticket on "good morning america." >> i think it would be a bad choice. carly did not resonate. not because she's a woman, but she did not resonate with the people. she's not going to do the trick. i like her. she's a nice person. she never resonated. she was very low in the polls. by the end she was an insignificant player.
if you want to bring carly back, it's okay, but it's not the right person. >> following the fiorina announcement, donald trump's son tweeted the following. this is truly one of the greatest acts of desperation i have ever seen. eric trump is not the only one saying that. john, was this a good move for cruz to name fiorina and was it well executed? >> i have seen a lot of desperate acts because i work in journalism but it's pretty desperate. this is like double dog desperate. i think there's -- it gives off a whiff of weakness. to the extent it changes the conversation a little bit from trump's big wins last night. it might be useful in this very short term. i don't think that carly fiorina
will help ted cruz one iota. >> the press say this is desperate, the guy is not the nominee. why is he naming a running mate? i think fiorina has the potential to go out there and try to help him win indiana. this is now a stage by stage thing. republicans have to get through this next stage which means cruz has to win indiana. i think she's an aggressive campaigner. she can help with the female voters. i think the press will say this is a negative because it looks desperate. i think it's positive. the reason you pick a running mate is you show you have good judgment. a lot of republicans will say she's ready to be president. trump will attack this mercil s mercilessly. he'll dominate it today with his gimmicky pick. can he continue to dominate it with the next five. >> most of the things that trump has pointed out that's wrong with fiorina, putting aside the
thing he said about her looks, she did not resonate with republican voters and not a successful candidate, the notion she did not debt anything done as presidential candidate, suggests the help she will get with voters is minimal. i think the running mates for actual presidential candidates or actual running mates do that much for the topic. the top of the ticket is what you vote for. >> since you ran over -- >> this is a hypothetical running mate. >> this would have helped more if it was a surprise. this has been the worst kept secret for several days. they acknowledged publicly she was being vetted. if they had done this as a surprise, it would be a much bigger deal. >> gets them nothing. at the mayflower hotel donald trump gave a speech, very different tone, tenor and tempo than his others. republican front-runner was tame and wedded to his teleprompter
as he talked about his vision for american engagement to the world describing how a trump
administration might handle some of the world's trouble ed areas and the u.s. add ver sversary i. >> one that replaces randomness with purpose and chaos with peace. it's time to shake the rust off america's foreign policy. it's time to invite new voices and new visions into the fold. america first will be the major and overriding them of my administration. under a trump administration, no american citizen will feel that their needs come second to the citizens of a foreign country. [ applause ] i will view as president, the
world, through the clear lens of american interest. i will be america's greatest defender and most loyal champion. we will not apologize for becoming successful again, but will embrace the unique heritage that makes us who we are. >> there's a lot of reactions to this speech which we'll talk about next. the harshest was from ted cruz blasting one of trump's advisors after claiming trump fails the presidential test. quote, he must fully identify the role and involvement of mr. manafort who is widely recognized with corrupt foreign regimes and anti-democrat rulers, end quote. in terms of policy and politics, how do you rate the trump big foreign policy speech?
>> the haters hate it. they say it's not specific. it's inconsistent. it's not distinctive. if you took trump's name out of of it and just presented it, it was well organized. i thought it was fine in presentation and delivery. in terms of policy, take away the hatred of trump and the belief he's fake and phony, a lot of people have, a lot of things he's talking about, would, if he executed them, would reorient american policy that a lot of people would like our policies to be. >> hillary clinton has given detailed, articulate foreign policy speeches that we have play
praised on this show for their degree of rigor. this speech had none of that. it's something you would give them pass on a year ago. a candidate who didn't say anything with any specificity, as you acknowledge, i don't have any idea beyond general platitudes and principles, i have no idea to apply them. he talks about how he will get rid of isis with the stroke of a pen. he has a secret plan to do that, but he won't tell you how to do that. >> what's clinton's argument? >> i guarantee i can find you. guarantee i can find you three paragraphs in about two minutes on this machine that gives more specifity and detail to answer that question than you can find any anything donald trump said. >> i think it's late to be given his first foreign policy speech. >> nothing he said that made me
think he was qualified to be commander in chief. >> donald trump's speech got mixed reviews across the political world. some people praised his party's front-runner calling the remarks, quote, an important step for the tone of the presidential race. others were not so nice. trump got his share of bipartisan panning from the right and the left joining together in anti-trump harmony criticizing the substance of his speech and his style. the senator from south carolina, lindsey graham tweeted are we sure the guy running the telen rprompt rprom prompter in the right order. hashtag not making any sense. he might be one of two people running our country. don't laugh. go knock some doors. i don't mean to overstate how
good it was but what does the strong reaction, often similar from the left and right say about what trump will face not just on foreign policy but attacks in general if he's the nominee through november. >> he's unusual in this regard. donald trump is disliked. he's going to hear a lot of criticism from people in his own party. that's what he faces throughout this race. >> no major party nominee has faced the double barrel criticism. are there weaknesses in the speech? of course. does it look specifics? of course. would a speech face this kind of pounding from both sides?
no, it would not. trump is underestimating this extent to have allies. he can't win a general election if he's fighting a two-front war every time he opens his mouth. >> that's what's going to happen. some of the criticism he's a stupid person, but the bottom line is on issues of policy people disagree with donald trump. it's not just that they hate, they think he's wrong. >> reporters checked their objectivity at the door. he's going to be be major party nominee and they mocked the speech in way that was unprofessional. >> i do not think you disagree that all major party nominees deserve intense scrutiny from the press and skepticism on all fronts. donald trump is owed it on the fact he hasn't give an foreign policy speech before of any
dimension. >> agreed. >> when we come back, the donald, the trump is defending his comment that hillary clinton is doing better in this election because of her gender. will that hurt him? that's the question. we'll talk about that and more after these words from our sponsors. sts... or not in vests. this is my retirement. retiring retired tires. and i never get tired of it. are you entirely prepared to retire? an your never tiring retiring retired tires retirement with e*trade.

welcome back. it's easy to forget that last night was huge for the front runners. hillary clinton won four out of the state fives. bernie sanders said in an interview that he's planning to layoff hundreds of campaign staff members across the country and refocus all of his resources or most of them on california. on the republican side, donald trump rolled a yahtzee last night, he didn't just won but won above what we expected. that led rick scott to call the
stop trump campaign to stop. he wrote in the antitrump groups don't stop now, their efforts will be nothing but a contribution to the clinton campaign. >> neither clinton or trump can secure nominations before the last day of voting. the press is saying that the reality of the math is it's over. her path now, her conduct will be much easier. sanders saying he's laying people off only helps her. trump couldn't have done any better in terms of the narrative as well. rick scott is on the cutting edge here. republicans now are starting to say it's over unless, unless, he loses indiana. trump is one win away from being able to say from people end this thing now. >> it's about mat and momentum. hillary clinton had mostly insurmountable lead already. she extended it.
bernie sanders will not get the pledge delegates. it's over on the democratic side unless there's some political lightning bolt and momentum wise she has it all. on the trump side, it's all i indiana now. it'sargely over. >> trump on morning joe dangles fund raising in front of rnc members. all right. the speech wasn't the only thing that donald trump is getting flak for today. you probably heard that part of his victory speech last night at trump tower when he said hillary clinton is only doing well because of her gender. we'll show you that sound bite even though you might have seen it. we have a hunch you'll be hearing an awful lot about it over the coming months if trump does become the nominee. let's go to the video tape. >> i think the only card she has
is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going. if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she would get 5% of the vote. the only thing she's got going is the woman's card. the beautiful thing is women don't like her. okay. look how well i did with women tonight. >> john, trump defended himself on the morning shows but lots of people are raising their eyebrows. i was in the room when he said it. it struck me as something that would be pounced on. is this going to hurt him? >> yes. it's going to hurt him this the general election if he continues down t path. not just the comment but the fact he seems blind to the problem he has with female voters. he's polling with 70% disapproval with women and he has to fix that problem if he will ever be president of the united states. that did nothing to help the problem and only made it worse. >> same bernie sanders has. you can take on hillary kclinto
but to question her qualifications, it's not a winning thing. when it's done by a man in this context, it's no doubt it will rub a lot of women and men for the wrong way for him to say she's not qualified except by virtue of being a woman. big mistake politically. >> that comment sounds off key at a minimum and offensive at a maximum to most women in the country. mitt romney won the females in 2012. donald trump has got to fix this problem. when we come back, our friends from purple strategies join us here right on this set after this. ma'am. this isn't an automated computer... operator! ma'am. i'm here. i'm live. wait. you're real? yeah. with discover card, you can talk to a real person in the u.s. day or night. plus, we're not going to waste your time trying to sell you a bunch of other products you don't really need. that is really nice of you. i feel really bad about shouting at you. oh, you weren't shouting. you were just speaking in all caps.

more complete allergy relief. flonase. 6>1 changes everything. joining us now, two guys we call the purple people. our polling partners and two people who know about politics. you've had a troubled relationship with the prospect of donald trump being your nominee. are you accepting the reality that's what's going to happen? >> i bow before president trump. i think that's -- he had this thing won in march. he nearly lost it. he's won it back. i think you're seeing the republican party become a lot more comfortable. the price now denying trump the
nomination is so clear to everyone in the party. it will be so destructive. it's not whether he earned the nomination, it's would it destroy the party to deny it to him. >> is there anything trump's done where he has solidified his hold on this. that is a guy who could win a general election? >> i think he's gotten a little more presidential at moments. i think is corey letting him revert to his old self. everyone time he puts the flags up and acts presidential, even a little bit, you can see a candidate that is evolving and perhaps maturing. then he goes off like he did halftime last night and seems to regress. i think if he run a temper tantrum campaign, i think he will get destroyed.
i think if he run a good campaign, he will get beat. >> i think hillary clinton has never won against anyone with eight arms and ten legs like trump. i think the odds of him winning a general election are better than 50/50. >> tell me about what happened today with ted cruz putting carly fiorina on the ticket? >> i think it was a clever strategy by ted cruz to get her delegate. i don't think she has any. i have no idea. this is the guy who asked the girl to the prom and she said no, and he's still making dinner reservations. it just demonstrates how irrelevant he's becoming. when trump succeeds or fails, you don't need ted cruz. >> he got a bit jealous because
he heard john kasich was interviewing and having vice presidential candidates vetted. cruz didn't want to lose anything to kasich not even the presidential sweep stakes. so he moved quickly. >> does it help him or is it a wash? >> i think he's so irrelevant that it probably hurts him a bit. it reenforces the fact he's desperate. >> you both agree that trump will be the nominee? there's no question in your mind? there's no way he will get to 1237. >> i've been hoping for some time this will be the case and alex has been fearing it. >> this year the impossible has happened. could he lose indiana? could a meteor hit something? yes. there's chance he falls not only handful of votes shorts then he gets the nomination. maybe they steal 200 votes from him. it looks like he will be the
republican nominee. >> rick scott, john read the statement saying stop the stop trump movement because everything you do is helping hillary clinton? >> the governor of florida is kind of at the leading oench that debate. it's beginning to sink in that the cost of denying trump the nomination is chaos in the party. they can go up or down but you want to avoid uncertainty. that's the trend for the next two months. >> alex talks about the cost of the republican party in denying trump the nomination. i completely agree. on the other hand, a lot of alex's friend, a lot of mainstream republicans are worried what happens in trump is the nominee. does the senate go under?
d does the house of representatives lose 30 seats? i say go donald because i think a lot of those could happen. >> if i were a senate candidate and i had a choice of having ted cruz above me or donald trump, i'd have a much better shot of being my own person, my own candidate under donald trump. ted cruz is the narrowest possible expression of being a republican, but he is a republican. donald trump is the circus is come to town. i'm not with the circus. look at me. >> thanks so much. stand by. after this break, we'll talk more about the democrats after this. but with my back pain i couldn't sleep... so i couldn't get up in time. then i found aleve pm. aleve pm is the only one to combine a sleep aid plus the 12-hour strength of aleve... for pain relief that can last into the morning. and now... i'm back.

going forward, is how to get the sanders voters to like her. what can she do to make that happen? >> she's got one great card in her pocket. that's us, republicans. if we can't unite the democratic party behind hillary clinton, nothing will. i'm sure she will head in that direction. there's no passion there for her. this is a stay home election for the democratic party. what can she do, put something on the ticket like elizabeth warren. square the democratic party strength. if she tries to reach across the middle with a v.p. pick, it could be passionless. i don't know what she can do other than move to vermont and live on a commune. >> point to donald trump and say look at him. >> that's what she started to do last night. look at bernie and the important issues he raised. look at the great campaign he ran. look at the people he brought into the process and let's all
get back together. she's already starting this. >> i think it just underestimates the extent. you listen to the sanders supporters. there's a lot of them who don't like her. they don't want donald trump to be president. what's the thing she can say to them that can get them passionately behind her? >> she can say i'm a democrat. the differences between the candidates are so small that they are exaggerated and the fights become huge and the fights are strong. people say the kinds of things that sanders supporters are saying about hillary clinton right now. at the end of the day they'll have a choice. the choice will be hillary clinton or donald trump or not showing up. hopefully they will show up but they won't vote for donald trump. >> they're two camps in the democratic party. they say like you, trump might come close. trump is a wide card and scrambles things. are those groups, among elite democrat, are those roughly equal or more people that say
trump can run flawless campaign and can't win. >> i'm not sure i'm quite in that camp. i do think there's a strain of donald trump's argument that's very similar to bernie sanders in a couple of respects. one is you're a victim and you're getting screwed. you're working harder and making less and someone is take your money. >> are you 80/20 that this is not a tough race. >> i think it's probably more like 60/40. a lot of people saying he's probably not going to get any lift but to assume he won't and plan like he won't is crazy. >> does anything else have to happen? do we need an e-mail indictment or you think on the current trajectory, donald trump can beat her? >> i don't think she knows who he is. she's had one card.
>> you think if there's no big intervening events, trump can beat her? >> yes. >> i don't think anything comes naturally to her. she doesn't believe in anything. she's not passionate about thing. she doesn't give people anything to be passionate about in her campaign. she's got one card that connects her to the future of this country and that's we have never had a woman president. even that seems to ring inauthentically for her. >> i don't know what that means. >> i'm not going to go there. >> hug bernie sanders. pick an elizabeth warren. that's not what she needed to do to go across the middle. i think you have this forced, stiff, inauthentic candidate that doesn't inspire the base in a general election and has no message the reach across the middle. i think she's beatable in a general election. >> i'd like to hang out at your office sometimes. >> we do have fun.
>> thank you. coming up, a former american ambassador dives into donald trump's foreign policy speech. you can listen to us on the radio. we'll be right back. s. perfect. only one egg with more great nutrition... like 4 times more vitamin d and 10 times more vitamin e. and 25% less saturated fat. only one egg good enough for my family. because why have ordinary when you can have the best. eggland's best. the only egg that gives you so much more: better taste. better nutrition. better eggs. people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen
victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in 3 ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas. vo: victoza® is an injectable escription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®,

if not, the u.s. must be prepared to let these countries defend themselves. we have no choice. our president has allowed china to continue its economic assault on american jobs and wealth, refusing to enforce trade deals and apply leverage in china necessary to reign in north korea. i believe an easing of tensions and img proved relations with russia from a position of strength only is possible, absolutely possible. then there's isis. i have a simple message for them. their days are numbered.
i won't tell them where, and i won't tell them how. [ applause ] we must, as a nation, be more unpredictab unpredictable. >> a little bit of more from that speech to talk about what trump said. let's start with the last point. the notion that being unpredictable is good. >> good evening. breaking into our regular scheduled programming to see donald trump here. he's about to speak his first remarks since ted cruz announced his running mate. let's listen in. >> first of all, i want to thank you all. we have,0 thousands of people coming in. we're going to start right away. i've never done there before,
but i'm going to do. i'm going to make the introduction. listen. normally they come out. they introduce trump. i'm coming out and i'm going to introduce bobby knight. [ applause ] listen to this. one of guys and everybody knows it, three national championships. tough. one olympic championship, tough. a pan am game, he won 900 games. that's a lot of games. i didn't realize this. i'm surprised by it, but it's tough. he had a perfect season, the only one. it hasn't been one since. he told me to say this because i
said didn't you have another one like the year before. i won't say it this way. i said let me say he had another great season. he lost one game. if he didn't screw up, he would have had two perfect seasons in a row. i said i can't say that. he said do it. i said i'll do it. you know what, i'm going to have bobby come out for a second. he's going to talk for a little while. i'm going to come right back out. i love you. i appreciate it very much. bobby knight. the great bobby knight. what a guy. thank you, bobby. [ cheers and applause ]
>> thank you. you folks are taking a look at the most prepared man in history to step in as president of the united states, that man right there. there has never been a presidential candidate prepared to the length that this man is. let me say something too. i'm not here to represent the republican party, and i'm not here to represent any organization that deals with politics. i think the most important thing in the world is we vote for the best man for this job, and you've already met him. [ applause ] let me just tell you a few
things that i think will happen under the trump administration. first of all, let me introduce or let me have stand, hold your hands up all former military people. i don't care what it is. all former military people. [ cheers and applause ] there will be no president who has ever had a better relationship with our military nor they with them. let's see a show of those hands one more time. now, as you do that, i want all you navy people to please raise your hands. all navy people raise your hands. i want you to know that i spent eight years teaching soldiers at the united states military
academy and we played navy eight straight years. we beat you every time we played you. i love you just as pump for your contributions to america as all the other venues of our military. this man will see that that group of people that we so depend on is really taken care of and treated in the best way possible. i want to say to you indiana people that i owe you a big, big debt of gratitude because nowhere in the world is a sporting group followed better than this state follows
basketball. i want the thank you for the opportunity i had to coach in this state. it will always be something that i will cherish. i want you to think about one thing and i appreciate what donald said relative to what our players did, the 900 wins and the long streak of not losing a game. remember this, those players on their shirt wore one word and it was indiana. now, you folks have a great
opportunity here. you folks vote iing for donald trump and throwing him over the top. if you people will do this, if you will do this, you will be having our government take its first step toward what all of us want america to be like. i had these -- you know, they talk in a negative way when they want to about donald and they talk about, he isn't presidential. i don't know what that means.
how many of you have relatives or you yourselves that go oversaes sometimes in sticky situations. how many of you have that in your lives? let me tell you something you can thank this man for. let me tell you something that will make your trips abroad much for comfortable than before. under his administration, there will never be another thing like what happened in benghazi. [ cheers and applause ] every branch of that military will get the absolute best care that they can possibly get from
the next president of the united states. the military will have that. [ cheers and applause ] one of the best things to do in this job that mr. trump is going to undertake is get good people. he does a great job of finding good people and teaching good people and even as important he's good at getting rid of bad people too. [ cheers and applause ] i think you're going to leave here tonight after you've heard mr. trump talk there's never
been a more honest politician than donald trump. after you've seen and listened to him, i think you'll be in a hurry to get out there and vote. i want you to know you have this great opportunity to push him over the top putting him in the best position this country has been in getting going where we all want to be. you people, if you will do that, if you will get us started on the road, i'm going to tell you what's going to happen to you. they're going to take all you people, what you did to give us donald trump, they're going to take all you people and put you right next to our founding
fathers in george washington. that's what they're going to do with you people. you will be responsible for the shift that america will make and what we want america to be if you will vote for donald trump. with that, with that, i simply say to you, i'll talk to you one other thing about donald trump and how he operates and how he gets things done. johnny walked into his dad's office one morning and said, dad, did mom tell you i passed the driver's test? son, she did tell me that. i'm really proud you have. she told me that the trooper that gave you the test said you had the best written test and the best driving test of anybody that he's ever had.
i'm so proud you have, son. dad, will that give me an opportunity to drive your car or mom's car once in a while? well, son, this is the man in charge. or the lady in charge, but this is all about the person that's in charge. he said to his son, well sure. there will be a time for you to use one of our cars. however, there are some prerequisites. your mother is not real happy with the way you treat your brother and sister. your grades are too below what they should be. i've talked you about reading and i've never seen you read and i've talked to you about the bible because there's a lot of good things in the bible that don't have anything to do with religion. there's one last thing and it's that long hair of yours. i've told you to get haircut. you haven't done it.
