pretty cool. that will do it for us. rachael will be back tomorrow. see you tomorrow morning at my regular time. now, it is time for lawrence. that's going to do it for us tonight. i'd see you tomorrow morning. up next, "first look." it's wednesday, june 1. donald trump goes off on reporters who dare to question donations to veterans as hillary clinton just got a huge boost to her campaign. a harrowing experience as ceiling tiles fall right on passengers mid flight. here heavy rains headed to the drenched midwest. and plus, a glimmer of good news where a child pulled from the ashes. and the president welcomes the wildcats and the debut of maya and marty. "first look" starts right now. good morning, everyone. i'm betty nguyen. breaking news overnight, the first baby born with zika related birth defects in the new
york area. the doctors delivered a baby girl with severe microencephaly and vision issues. the mother reportedly contracted the disease after being bitten been a mosquito early in the pregnancy. microencephaly, where the head is smaller than expected normally grow to have learning and vision problems and many will have physical disabilities. the first u.s. case of zika related microencephaly was confirmed in puerto rico in mid may. meanwhile, important changes and protection from the zika virus. the world health organization said if you have travelled to the country with an outbreak of zika, you should practice safe sex or abstain for eight weeks that's double the previous guidance. men who have shoen shown symptoms should wait six months. it was a wild flight when there was a hard landing made in new jersey. the boeing 767 carrying 214
passengers bounced up and down on the runway before the pilot ditched the landing. that caused several panels to fall from the plane's ceiling. fortunately, the panels collapsed into the aisle, and no one was hurt. the plane circled newark 30 minutes before landing to the cheers of the passengers as you can imagine. still no word from united on what caused that incident. donald trump berated journalists while listing which veterans groups received millions of dollars from his fund-raising event. trump promised the millions back in january. when he held a competing event after refusing to participate in the fox gop debate. so why did he wait until now to make the donations? trump said his team was vetting the organizations. and then he unleashed attacks on his favorite target -- the media. nbc's hallie jackson has more. >> reporter: for 39 minutes a fiery roast. >> you're a sleaze. i have watched you on
television. you're a real beauty. >> reporter: at a combative news conference -- >> i find the political press to be unbelievably dishonest. >> reporter: donald trump angry for being held accountable for the fund-raiser, when did they get the money, why did it take so long to get it to them? >> i have raised a tremendous amount of money for the vets and instead of being like thank you very much, mr. trump, or trump did a good job, everyone saying who got it, who got it? and you make me look very bad. >> reporter: trump listing the donations totaling $5.6 million to 41 different charities including a million of his own money. nbc news confirms nearly a third of the total, $1.9 million has only been disbursed in the last week after growing pressure on trump about the status of the donations. >> i wanted to keep it private because i don't think it's anybody's business if i want to send money to the vet. >> reporter: yet that money came from the public rally held during a debate trump refused to
attend. at the time, he slammed the fellow republicans doing so again even after promising a path toward party unity. >> bill kristol is a loser. >> reporter: insulting bill kristol and former gop nominee mitt romney. >> if i have a republican that's not on my side, i'm not going -- why should i be particularly nice to that person? >> reporter: new mexico governor susana martinez -- >> she wasn't nice. you thyme going to change, i'm not changing. >> reporter: trump said he won't. this is how he'd be at the white house. even with only one in ten voters giving him high marks for having the right temperament to be commander in chief. do you need a thicker skin to run for this office? >> no, i think it's bother some because i love the vets. when the press portrays it differently they're being dishonest. >> reporter: a preview of a president trump. hallie jackson, nbc news, new york. to the democrats and california governor jerry brown's major endorsement of hillary clinton a week before his state's primary. calling clinton's delegate lead
insurmountable and emphasizing that donald trump must be stopped. bernie sanders responded by railing against the primary system calling it an anointment in front of the packed california crowd last night. a new online hoover institute golden state poll has clinton beating sanders in california 51% to 38%. clinton is also increased her ad buy in the state and spending $861,000. and bernie has spent over $1 million in ads in california. however, clinton continues to reel from new reports regarding her private e-mail server. newly released testimony from clinton aide cheryl mills says that little -- that little thought was given to potential issues over the former secretary of state's private e-mail. clinton called in to msnbc and said she never intended to hide her personal e-mail use. >> i e-mailed with hundreds of people. and i e-mailed department officials and there's
directly -- directly with my e-mail as other secretaries have done. i certainly never instructed anyone to hide the fact that i was choosing a personal e-mail. that was obvious to hundreds of people, visible to the many people that i was e-mailing. throughout the state department and the rest of the federal government. >> clinton is campaigning in new jersey this morning and then she'll head to boston for a fund-raiser and rally while she'll be joined by jon bon jovi. she'll resume her california campaign tomorrow. over a thousand migrants have died crossing the mediterranean in just the past week. the international organization for migration says the majority of those who died were on barely seaworthy boats which sank in calm seas traveling from libya to italy. the united nations reports an estimated 2,500 have died crossing the mediterranean alone. that's up substantially from last year. approximately 200,000 migrants have arrived in europe in 2016
so far. amateur video appears to show workers in syria rescuing a child from the rubble of the destroyed building. look at this, the video claims to be taken in the rebel held city after a russian air strike there. the child appears bloodied and covered with debris, but alive. the syrian observatory for human rights says at least 23 people were killed in the strike including seven children. the exact date of the video is unknown. although the strikes reportedly occurred monday. russia has denied any involvement. back here, the water's still rising in southeast texas after unrelenting rain has led to historic flooding. the horses are looking for shelter on flooded farms and neighborhoods on the verge of being washed away as hundreds struggled to find higher ground. the death toll from the flooding has risen to nine after the body of a 10-year-old boy who fell into the brazos river was found. look at this heart breaking video, a dog chained to a house
trying to keep its head above water. the good news is rescuers were able to free the traumatized dog and carry it to the boat. and then get it to higher ground. and more rain could be on the way. not what they need. meteorologist bill karins is here with that. just looking at this dog, it puts it in perspective. >> so sad, panicking. >> that's just one tale but we have lives lost in this. >> and the flood threat continues. we had a big thunderstorm complex that passed through, one little one in the middle of the state. but we're going to get more rounds of thunderstorms over the next three or maybe four days. flash flood watch for 13 million from dallas to corpus christi, san antonio, all the way back over to st. angelo. rounds of heavy rain will lead to new river flooding to as we head to the weekend. widespread, two to four inches. i read some of the discussions out of san antonio, they think it's possible someone could get a foot of rain over the next couple of days.
so very serious situation with that ground like that. also we'll see extended storms in chicago and st. louis today. but we're not looking at the severe threats of flooding like in texas. today is the first day of the hurricane season. as far as the forecast goes, average season, we'll consider between four to eight hurricanes. the major hurricanes are the ones we're concerned with. betty, we haven't been hit by a major hurricane since wilma. we're way overdue for a category 3 hurricane. >> let's push that back. >> but the numbers say we're due. a sirius xm radio personality is silenced. and the wildcats visit the white house. you're watching "first look."
shoshow me more like this.e. 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. welcome back. 12 minutes past the hour. amid the uproar over the cincinnati zoo gorilla killed on saturday, police are focus on the parents of the 3-year-old boy who fell into the enclosure.
authorities say they're looking into the parents' actions leading up to the incident and not the operation or safety of the zoo to determine whether criminal charges should be filed. sirius xm announced yesterday that it has suspended glenn beck's radio show for at least a week after he agreed with comments made by fiction author brad thor which was widely viewed as assassination of donald trump. thor denied that he made the suggestion saying he was only discussing quote hypothetical america under a dictator. check out the full story on nbcnews.com. following the shocking road rage incident the florida couple that was run over by a car while on the motorcycle has spoken out. >> us as bikers we're on the road to have a good time and we're out to support the veterans and this happens to us. everyone should share the road. we're out there to have a good time and ride and this happens. >> 31-year-old robert vance
apparently caught on camera as the admitted hit and run driver and the habitual traffic offender has been charged in the incident. let's get down to business with cnbc's landon dowdy. good morning. >> good morning. the big automakers, ford, gm, fiat, chrysler and toyota report today. we're expecting a strong month for the industry, but analysts will be examining the quality of the sales. in march and april, the automakers had to use hefty incentives to encourage people to buy. that often eat into profits. >> yeah. meanwhile, while a number of employees are actively looking for job, half of employers can't find the workers they need to fill the workers. >> how does that add up? >> not us, we're very happy where we are. career builder says it may take longer to land a job and companies aren't necessarily done with you if you don't get an offer. so don't let that scare you. >> yeah, exactly.
general mills, listen to this, this is a good one. it's recalling 10 million pounds of flour due to the possible link to the e. coli outbreak in 20 states. the recall is for a variety of gold medal and signature kitchens flour. general mills said it's being cautious. just last week i was making brownies out of a box and i'm a sucker to lick the bowl before i make brownies. not good. >> make sure you check the boxes to be safe. thank you. >> thanks. now to sports. we start in chicago where the cubs' jake arrieta going for his 20th straight regular season against the dodgers dating back to last year. arrieta threw seven scoreless innings but his cubbies were shut out by the dodgers late surge against the bullpen. final score, 5-0. it wasn't pretty for san diego as the marlins put 16 runs up on the board. it got so bad that the padres had to have a couple of position players pitch to finish the game.
including starting catcher christian bethancourt. he threw this knuckleball which drew laughs from his own dugout. final in seattle -- 16-4. well, over in baltimore, boston's mookie betts became the first leadoff hitter in red sox history to hit three home runs in game. he started off in the first inning and followed that up with one in the second. boston won 6-2. he had five rbis. north of the border, kevin pa lar made the diving catch. he singled home and the go-ahead run. that was a beauty. the villanova men's basketball team were welcomed to the white house. they won the ncaa tournament this year. since winning, they have had a
parade in philly, rung the opening bell at the new york stock exchange and threw out the first pitch at a phillies game. not too shabby. so "scrambled politics" is up next. unstoppable kind of mom. when pain tries to stop you, motrin works fast to stop pain. make it happen with motrin® liquid gels. also try motrin pm to relieve pain and help you sleep.

alternatives in the race. that might be the only optional for the never trump, never clinton voters. johnson and weld joined chuck todd yesterday. they welcomed the editorial but said they don't plan to go negative on trump or clinton. >> i have no intention, neither of us have any intention of attacking trump or hillary. but you know, from an issues standpoint absolutely. the stuff that he is saying, i think he's said a hundred things that would have tubed any other candidate but here he is. a road sign in texas was hacked this weekend and reprogrammed to suggest donald trump is a shape shifting lizard of all things. but that wasn't the only sign hacked. another backed bernie sanders for president. they have been changed back to normal. a wedding now adds more drama to florida's ninth congressional race. alan grayson is giving up his house seat to run for the senate
and he married one of the candidates looking to replace him. yes. dina meaning, a doctor and former lobbyist has had grayson as her biggest asset and she promptly changed her social media accounts to include her new last name. boasting my handsome husband, alan grayson. the primary for the old seat is scheduled for august 30th. mitch mcconnell has jumped into the donald trump tax debate tilling business insider quote for the last 30 or 40 years every candidate for president has released their tax returns and i think donald trump should as well. meanwhile, in a strange twist north korea is backing donald trump for president. coming out with a propaganda website. the country's government praised trump as a quote, prescient presidential cdidate who can liberate americans living under the daily fear of a nuclear attack. no word yet from trump on that endorsement. and that, my friend, is your
morning dish of "scrambled politics." all right. coming up on 22 minutes after the hour, best selling author, ellis henican is here. you want to respond to that? >> i'm still on the shape shifting lizard. you're from texas. how does that work? >> i'm not sure. i think that's something from the movie or the movie "trueblood", but who knows. let's get back to donald trump. because at that press conference yesterday, boy, that was a doozie, wasn't it? >> yeah, sleazy. >> shape shifting of all sorts was going on there. there was a debate over whether he was shamed into donating to veterans for the delay was about vetting the organizations. i mean, is this an issue where people are looking at this and thinking can we trust you? >> well, here's what we know. he made the promise to give the money and then not much happened for a long time. "the washington post" wrote a story questioning it. then all of a sudden, after the
questions were asked, a lot of the veterans groups started to find checks in the mail. so you just have to decide what you think the reason was. >> well, you know, trump has promised a whole lot of changes for the veterans. how fast -- especially after this, how fast does he have to come through to -- for them to back him or will they move away? >> i think donald has done very well with the older white vets, right, the folks who are at that rolling thunder rally in washington. i mean, they're pretty pro trump, but there are different kind of vets today -- they're all over the political map. it depends on who you're talking about. >> we have to stay with that news conference because trump really went after the media for asking questions about his donations calling on -- one reporter a sleaze. he was upfront saying he won't change his demeanor. so far though, voters they like that. they like what they see. will they continue though in a general election? >> well, you know what? i think he's going to be exactly
the same way if he's elected. i don't think he's going to change at all. i think he'll be the same kind of guy he's been and, you know what? you love him, you hate him, but that's going to be donald, i think. >> what you see is what you get. ellis, thank you. just ahead, one cyclist's violent run-in with a kangaroo. plus, a star studded premiere. happen. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair works... ...in one week. with the... fastest retinol formula. ...to visibly reduce wrinkles. neutrogena®. trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax constipated? use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief

on the west coast. this is a show that lives by its name. it's "way too early." good morning. it's wednesday, june 1st, i'm sam stein. now, you can live by the press, you can die by the press and then there's what ever happened to donald trump yesterday. he invited reporters to his home turf of trump tower and seeking to set the record straight on his fund-raising for veterans organizations. trump defended the months it's taken to release the money, saying the groups had to be vetted first. he said he didn't want the credit or hostility from the media. >> on behalf of the vets, the press should be ashamed of themselves. they are calling me and they're furious because i sent people checks of a lot of money and we're going to give you the
