tv Way Too Early MSNBC May 11, 2016 2:30am-3:01am PDT
but don't worry, when you decide the time is finally right for you to endorse trump, it will only last a minute. just shut your eyes and think of reagan. >> the primary battle rages with big wins for donald trump and bernie sanders but the story line is just how many trump supporters were feeling the bern in west virginia. plus, another deadly mall attack. this time a stabbing rampage in massachusetts. the big question this morning is why? and -- >> holy mackerel, there goes that. >> the tornado outbreak continues with almost a dozen reported injuries across western kentucky. bill karins is back in action this morning with more on how much longer the severe weather will last. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west. this is "way too early."
good morning. it's wednesday, may 11th. i'm jonathan capehart. to the latest on the severe weather, at least ten people were injured when a large tornado tore through western kentucky yesterday. officials say it destroyed homes and businesses in mayfield and dumped hail across the state. it came just a day after tornadoes tore through parts of oklahoma and this morning, we're seeing just how much power one twister packed when it hit the south central town of katie. take a look. >> a farm right up here. don't, please, don't hit that farm. holy -- man. that's a violent tornado. oh, my gosh. that's the most violent motion -- oh, my. get across the road right here. oh, no! it's hitting that farm. no.
oh, no. oh, no. come on. be okay. man, oh, no. oh, my god. look at that. >> oklahoma governor mary fallin has declared a state of emergency in 16 counties to expedite resources to the hardest hit areas. as a fait accompli, donald trump won last night, and still 20% of the voters in nebraska cast ballots for ted cruz and less than a week after suspending his presidential bid, ted cruz returned to capitol hill ruled out a third party bid. he spoke in a packed hallway for
ten minutes and then walked in to his senate office to cheers of the staff welcoming him back. surprisingly he kept the door open to getting back in the race. >> listen, we have suspended the campaign, we have suspended the campaign because i can see no viable path to victory. of course if that changed, we would reconsider things, but let's be clear. we're not going to win nebraska today. there should be no mystery or excitement in that. we have withdrawn thfrom the campaign. it's in the hands of the voter, if circumstances change we'll assess. but i appreciate the eagerness of the excitement of the media to see me back in the ring, but you may have to while a little bit longer. >> former candidate marco rubio is also speaking out about the state of the 2016 race. earlier the florida senator ruled out being considered for the vice presidential nomination. and yesterday, donald trump tweeted, quote, it is only the people that were never asked to
be vp that tell the press that they will not take the position. in a forum at a washington think tank and in a later interview, rubio said trump had his vote, but was restrained in his support. >> my policy differences and reservations about donald's campaign are well established. i've said them often and those remain. and i hope they will be addressed but those remain. that said, i don't view myself as the guy who is going to take shots at him. people know where i stand, they know how i feel, they know what our differences are. he's the nominee of the republican party or the presumptive nominee via the voters and i respect that and i accept it. but that's not going to change the reservations i have about his campaign or about some of the policies that he's established. but i'm not insisting he change anything. he means to be true to whoever he is and that's the things he believes in and then he may have a chance to make that argument to the american people. >> i signed a pledge that said i
will support the republican nominee and i will continue to do that. >> will you vote for him? >> as i said i'll -- >> no, you'll bide by the pledge, but when you go into the privacy of the booth -- >> i intend to support the republican nominee. >> including -- >> i'm not voting for hillary clinton. >> okay. >> i'm not throwing away my vote. this morning all eyes are on who a potential running mate might be for trump, and he played coy when asked if chris christie made the cut. >> i like chris, i have in mind five different people. i think they're excellent. i'll announce whoever it will be at the convention. >> heading the search is campaign manager corey lewandowski and trump says ben carson will play a role as well. a new poll is out showing the favorability of a slate of potential trump running mates. the best known names like sarah palin and ted cruz and chris
christie tend to have the highest unfavorabilities. bloomberg reports that the ohio governor kasich is at the top of the list and despite pressure he is cool to the idea. most people in the poll haven't heard of some of the lesser known candidates like governor mary fallin of oklahoma, whose name has been floated. but trump tweeted suggesting her as a running mate was great advice. support for trump from white nationalists was thrust back into the spotlight when it was reported yesterday that the campaign included one on his slate of delegates in california. william johnson identifies himself as a white nationalist and pro trump robocalls he made to republican voters throughout the primary season. he said, quote, don't vote for a cuban. vote for donald trump. donald trump disavowed the calls in january and the trump campaign initially blamed a quote database error for his inclusion on the list saying that his name was submitted
despite being reject and removed from the campaign's list in february. johnson told nbc that he had withdrawn from being a trump delegate and the campaign said it had quote immediately submitted a new list. but the california secretary of state's office told nbc news that trump's campaign not only contacted them yesterday and missed monday's cutoff date. quote, we informed the campaign that we would not be accepting their revision because it was past the statutory deadline. william johnson will remain on the trump campaign certified list of delegates. on the democratic side, bernie sanders won the west virginia democratic primary last night. he was projected to win the state and likely benefited from comments clinton made about the coal industry earlier this year. sanders' strongest support was not from democrats but independents according to exit polling. they made up a third of the electorate and of sanders' voters there, 33% said they'd
choose trump over the senator from vermont in the general election. sanders picked up 16 delegates to clinton's 11 in west virginia. but according to nbc news, clinton picked up six super delegates to sanders' one super delegate, meaning they tied, 17 to 17 in the state. after his win in west virginia, sanders went on to speak at a rally in salem, oregon, in front of a crowd of about 4,000 people. he celebrated his victory and didn't let up on hillary clinton. >> we have won primaries and caucuses in 19 states. and let me be as clear as i can be. we are in this campaign to win the democratic nomination. one of the waltons made a campaign contribution to secretary clinton of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
[ crowd boos ] i say to that family, maybe instead of making large campaign contributions to secretary clinton, pay your workers a living wage. >> hillary clinton drew her own big crowds in louisville, kentucky. her campaign made a six figure ad buy in the state according to data obtained from nbc news. in spite of the shift of the focus to trump. >> if i'm fortunate enough to be the nominee i'm looking forward to debating donald trump come the fall. >> she's projecting that, why is she spending money in tv ads in kentucky? it sounds to me like she understands that we are in this race, that we have been included west virginia and nine more primary and caucus contests.
then there were these comments from vice president joe biden who for months has said enough to leave people guessing about where he stands on the race. >> you bring up the next president, we're all anxious to see -- >> who she is. [ laughter ] i feel confident that hillary will be the nominee and i feel confident she'll be the next president. clinton is fighting personal attacks from trump and more to come from manafort. >> he said she did nasty things to the women against bill clinton. >> he definitely knows what he's talking about. i believe in him. >> you so -- >> so he's told you stuff, he knows about the clintons and their back unreported behavior that he will now bring out? >> we have talked about the hypocrisy of hillary clinton playing the female card, and his willingness to expose that card
for what it is. >> what is this thing about hillary clinton being married to somebody's an abuser of women, how do you make that case? >> stay tuned. >> you have a case? >> stay tuned. >> have you heard his case? >> we have things to talk about in this campaign where we will not be getting away with that playing the female card. >> this morning police in massachusetts are investigating a deadly stabbing spree that left three people dead including the suspect. the incident began when the suspect identified as 28-year-old arthur derosa crashed a vehicle into a home. once inside he reportedly stabbed two women. one of the victims an 80-year-old died. a short time later police say the suspect crashed into the macy's store at the nearby shopping mall and assaulted several people inside. one of them died. >> we saw like the car just dove right in. and after that is when my mom is like hurry up and we dived the other way. it honestly happened the fastest thing. hop out and just like go. >> according to authorities an
off duty sheriff's deputy shot the assailant. he was taken to the hospital and he was pronounced dead. the suspect's motive is under investigation but police don't believe it was related to terrorism. the nation's second largest subway system is at risk of being shut down if safety concerns aren't fixed soon. days after an explosion damaged the track in the d.c. metro, anthony fox is threatening to suspend the system if immediate changes aren't made. fox told reports yesterday, he quote would have no hesitation to shut down the system if safety doesn't improve in that quote -- and that quote there's an awful lot of work to do to correct the problem. let's turn to business where the dow had its best day since march yesterday. but asian markets continue to be on shaky ground. cnbc's nancy hulgrave joins us from london. what's behind that volatility? >> as you mentioned it was a great day for u.s. stocks on
wall street with the dow and s&p 500 putting in their best performance in two months. the nasdaq the best performance in a month. a lot of that was driven by the price of oil still picking up in the session. but now we're starting to see some of the gains pared back. that's been weighing on the european markets and questions about whether or not that can hold. we are seeing a bit of weakness when you look at the u.s. futures. early forecasts of where they'll open. two stocks you may want to watch today will be office depot and staples because in the after hour trade, they're both down sharply. this is because the two office retail stores had decided to terminate a $6 billion merger. this comes after a judge decided to award a request from the ftc to bring an injunction on that merger simply due to competition concerns. so those stocks expected to get some movement when trading begins later today. back to you. >> nancy hulgrave live from london, thank you. still ahead on "way too early" the ultimate warrior steph curry gets mvp for the second straight year and the
internet goes wild. we'll tell you why it was his daughter once again who stole the show. plus, more severe weather threatening the central plains today. more than 22 million people at risk with more tornadoes possible. bill karins is back and he has the forecast coming up when "way too early" comes right back. >> here it goes. it's going over -- oh, look at that. atand that in a new house,tee a fyou probably don't sharece, the same tastes as the previous owner. ♪

supports me and the things that basketball taught me on and off the court. for the people i have been able to meet through the game of basketball. i have been blessed in that regard. you know, through and through. so i'm just -- i'm just thankful for this opportunity to play the game that i love and share that with the world really. >> as "time" magazine put it the international net had quote zero chill about steph curry. and under armour said it sold out of its limited edition of sneakers. now is to san antonio the thunder take the second home game away from the spurs pushing san antonio to the brink with the 3-2 series lead. oklahoma city's westbrook had 35 points as the thunder rallied from a fourth quarter defect to beat the spurs 95-91 in game 5. the thunder will have chance to
close out the series at home on thursday. after the game, one reporter's question seemed to strike a nerve with san antonio coach gregg popovich who does not sound ready to throw in the towel just yet. >> how much credit should donovan give the series for the job that the thunder have done? >> i didn't know the series was over yet. >> just for the series thus far. >> i don't rate other coaches. turning now to major league baseball in los angeles, the mets and the dodgers tied at two in the bottom of the ninth inning. >> light breeze now blowing to right field. and high fly ball, deep left side of the field. it is gone! >> l.a.'s trayce thompson sends a solo shot over the left center field wall to give the dodgers a 3-2 walk-off win. now, in boston, one world war ii veteran celebrated his
100 birthday at fenway park as they hosted the athletics. as you see there, he got a souvenir foul ball tossed to him from the ball girl. >> there's great. that is terrific. my grandfather is 96 and a red sox fan. when he makes it to 100, i'm there. i'll take him to fenway. first time i'll ever step place in that beautiful ballpark. >> i hope they're listening. >> yeah. >> we'll see. >> what's going on with the severe weather? >> yeah this is is an example of a tornado. not all tornadoes stay on the ground for the whole length. sometimes they're on the ground, they dissipate and then lift and then all of a sudden, it refo s reforms. it comes right back. when it did it did so very intense. you can hear the guys in the background. had a couple of injury, but thankfully no fatalities. had some big large hail in areas
of kentucky yesterday. it was the focal point for the bigger storms that's not too bad. like -- almost like quarter sized hail. san antonio already two inches of rain. huge thunderstorms over the town. now new ones are redeveloping to the west of town. so we'll watch that. we'll have a severe thunderstorm watch that includes kansas city to omaha. large thunderstorms along interstate 70 from topeka to kansas city and that's drifting up to st. joseph. the other areas of concern, late today, this area of the slight risk all the way back to iowa and missouri. but this enhanced risk of severe storms this is where we'll see some large hail, baseball sized hail. we'll watch the storms right around 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. from tulsa up to mcallister. still some rainy weather from the d.c. area to virginia. i saw yesterday, yesterday was 14 days in a row in washington, d.c., jonathan, with a trace of rain. that's a streak we'd like to
that. >> now the senate gop has launched an inquiry into facebook over claims of bias. it comes after the gizmodo article in which a former worker claimed that the social network suppressed conservative news articles from the trending topics. john thune has write up a letter to mark zuckerberg demanding that the company explain how trending articles are chosen. >> if these allegations that have been made by these former facebook employees are accurate, it completely contradicts everything that facebook says that they're about when it comes to their trending topics. they have 167 million users who rely on facebook. i assume for news and information. and if the news that's coming through there which is represented to be objective and based upon some algorithm and it's not, then the people have a right to know that. harry reid hit back, writing
that the republican senate refuses to hold hearings on judge garland, refuses to fund the request for zika aid and takes the most days off of any senate since 1956, but thinks facebook hearings are a matter of urgent interest. the people probably want their money back. for their part, facebook said there are rigorous guidelines in place and they found no evidence that the anonymous allegations are in fact true. let's change gears here for a second, jonathan. budweiser will replace the word budweiser with america. it will include phrases from the pledge of allegiance and lyrics from the star spangled banner and america the beautiful. let's go to something right here. her dad might have made history as the nba's first unanimous
