tv The Last Word With Lawrence O Donnell MSNBC June 1, 2016 7:00pm-8:01pm PDT
now, behold the opening ceremony for the rail tunnel. trapeze artists, topless, men acing looking angels, seminaked dancers, tap dancing men in orange jump suits, and the tunnel is freaking amazing, if you think that that giant flying baby head is not going to haunt your dreams forever, you are made of stronger stuff than i am. it made me think twice. see you tomorrow. time for the last word with lawrence o'donnell. good evening. >> the sound in the magic devices in our ears, is not always perfect. what i thought i heard you say was that you were going to talk about a whale tunnel.
>> rail. >> a tunnel for whales. when i get the image in my head. a tunnel for whales. i couldn't hear anything you were saying about a tunnel. just imagine. >> how else are the whales going to cross the alps, lawrence? >> you threw me off there, rachel. >> if you are donald trump, accused of fraud on the front page of your local newspaper "the new york times" you of course fight back with childish tweets. >> i am not changing. >> the republican party picked the candidate that it has. >> no booing, we are voting, not booing. >> we see someone who is unqualified and unfit to be president. >> big deal. like i care. >> we are not doing a trump
hotel business deal. seeking to rattle people is not objective number one. >> sometimes, i just don't get t how it is that somebody could propose that we weaken regulations on wall street? that is crazy. >> we are going to build a wall. >> we can't put up walls around america. we are not going to round up 11 million people. >> i will be voting for donald trump in november. >> their answers to our challenges are no answers at all. >> donald trump is a fraud. he is trying to scam america, the way he scammed all the people at trump u. >> clinton's attempts, to focus on trump. >> bill clinton, racing to california. maybe they think this california is not quite over. >> this is the last word on campaign 2016. >> president obama unofficially
entered the presidential campaign, not to support hillary clinton or bernie sanders but to oppose donald trump. he is speaking right now in a rally in sacramento. >> he chose indiana to attack donald trump. the unemployment rate now, is 4.3 president. 4.3% unemployment with the conditionation of his policies or 19% or worse with donald trump's policies. >> the republican nominee for president said he would dismantle all the rules. that is crazy. have we -- no, look.
i mean. sometimes i will be honest with you. sometimes, i just don't get it. how it is that somebody could propose that we weaken regulations on wall street. have we forgotten what just happened eight years ago? it hadn't been that long ago. because of their reckless behavior. you got hurt. the notion that you would voetz for good-bye that would now allow them to go back to doing the same stuff that almost broke our economy's back, makes no sense. i don't care whether you are republican or a democrat or independent, why would you do
that? >> three weeks after being sworn in as president, he visited elcart, where the unemployment rate was 19%. today, while mentioning what it could dom, he never mentioned the name donald trump. >> one path would lead to lower wages, eliminate worker protections, cut investments in education, weaken the safety net, kick people off health insurance, let china write the rules for the global economy. let big banks weaken rules to protect families, cut taxes for the wealthiest americans to historic lows, those are the facts. don't think that this agenda is going to help you. it is not designed to help you. the evidence of the last 30 years, not to mention, common
sense, should tell you that their answers to our challenges, are no answers at all. >> the president knew he was not preaching to the converted. >> while i may have won the state of indiana, barely in 2008, i know i lost the vote in elcart. i definitely got whooped here in 2012. i know i don't poll all that well in this county. so, i am not here looking for votes. i am here because i care deeply as a citizen about making sure that we sustain and build on all of the work that communities like yours have done to bring america back over the last seven and a half years. and i came here precisely because this county votes
republican. that is one of of the reasons i came here. if the economy is really what is driving this election, then it will be voters like you that have to decide between two different visions of what will help to strengthen our middle class. >> at a campaign event, hillary clinton leaned on the story in the "new york times." one of the fraud cases brought over fraud university. >> i believe that it was a fraudulent scheem, to the uneducated to separate them from their money. >> donald trump himself is a fraud. he is trying to scam america, the way he scammed all the
people at trump u. it is important that we recognize what he has done, that is usually a pretty goodicat indicator of what he will do. >> trump in a speech said this about hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton, she lies. she lies. she made a speech, he is making another one tomorrow. they sent me a copy of the speech. it was such lies about my foreign policy, that they said i want japan to nuke. i want to japan to get nuclear weapons. give me a break. >> joining mu ne now, katie. what have we heard in response to hillary clinton's statement,
and president obama's statements. >> the sound byte you played, with donald trump not wanting japan to have a nuclear weapon. that is the first time he has unequivically said that he was talking to the new york times about foreign policy, he said he would be open to saudi arabia and japan having a nuclear wep. he walked it back. tonight, he said unequivically, he does not want them to have a nuclear weapon. >> he thinks he is fair game like bill clinton s donald trump has been going after president obama, calling his policies bad for the country. he would immediately overturn all of the executive orders, he
has put in place over his presidency. a lot of attacks on the press. after what was a bad news cycle for the candidate, after the trump university law enforcem t enforcement -- students on their seminars, they started out free, went to $faechb 00. went as high as $35,000. donald trump trying to get out bihind that spin the news cycle back in his direction. clearly a day where he does not win the cycle out. which is unusual for him. >> now, michael steele, the republican party, and columnist. one thing i was struck by, in
president obama's speech, he said he came there today, because they know they vote republican. he wanted to talk to those voters. going into unfriendly territory. >> i think it was a smart move by the president. he is anxious to engage donald trump. i think he will. for him, a lot less about hillary and better thannie, and more about the opportunity to frame his last eight years against a potential four-years of donald trump. going into republican territory, going into the backyard if you will. for him, it is juicy. it gives him an opportunity to say, i am not afraid to what you know and i know, what is best
for the country is not what he is offering. be careful how you do it. they don't want to get in a back and forth against the president. if this race becomes more about him than them. >> he was silent unless he gave the speech. greeted with a front page dev. 8 his tweet was, crooked hillary clinton is a fraud, to put the count reese and his illegal use
of e-mails, no attempt during the day to defind trump university. >> he hilts back. all about re -- we will have a war. that is likely if trump were to be president. it is dangerous to get into a pizzing match with a skunk. that is what clinton people are trying to figure out. they are dealing with him with asbestos mittens at this point. they haven't found a key. >> obama is on more solid ground. on the issues.
the only one trump wins, middle management and their spouses in the suburbs, the people make between 70 and 120,000 a year. if they say, he is better. if obama and hillary. >> we saw him trying to p preempt -- he sees to understand, it is want a good idea to advocation. i want to get some of he said in march, you have see many countries right now, who have
that. couldn't you have japap has nucle nuclear. >> really catches up and changes your -- when you speeblg without understanding of facts, and the recently that the united states has kanched out since world war ii, with parnerts now adversarys. this is the part i think donald to get himself up to speed on sdelicate issues, you can't put
with that lawrence. you have to understand it i think that will be one of the clinton campaign will raise in the next few months. >> the democrats are not going to have just -- leelts listen to him. >> we are not do diagnose a trump hothis is an on-going relationship. when you are dealing with war and life and change choices, seeking to battle people did not
an on theive most of the people? >> i think it is an sprnt hillary clinton, for barack obam aover again, to make the american people familiar with the word, unpresidential. so you hear it by the water fountain. you might by the time this is over. when you get close, the public is less likely to elect somebody that is unpresidential. it is not going to happen by itself. >> coming up. why did donald trump take federal money from a fund for victims of 911.
new guys? well, they're not that new. they've been defending things for a long time. [ digital typewriting ] it's not just security. it's defense. bae systems. the rally in sacramentoo started early, and ended early. jacob, what is the situation there? what we are seeing, thousands of people inside the rally walking out. what we are going to see up ahead are police. a lineup of them, separating protesters, here the entire rally, from supporters, throughout the rally and before, there was taunting, and reporters, shouting shame on you, to the trump supporters. what we were seeing, it wasn't as intense as we have seen in the past week.
because this was held at an airport very far away. back here live. the police on motorcycle. here are the protesters left over. so far, nothing physical and no arrests. >> nothing newsworthy in that trump speech. we show you you that one today. his call for donald trump to return grant money that he took from a fund that was meant for victims of 9/11. to folks out there whose diabetic nerve pain...
shoots and burns its way into your day, i hear you. to everyone with this pain that makes ordinary tasks extraordinarily painful, i hear you. make sure your doctor hears you too! i hear you because i was there when my dad suffered with diabetic nerve pain. if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands, don't suffer in silence! step on up and ask your doctor about diabetic nerve pain. tell 'em cedric sent you. (vo) you can check on them. you can worry about them. you can even choose a car for them. (mom) honey, are you ok? (child) i'm ok. (announcer vo) love. (mom) we're ok. (announcer vo) it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.
>> listen to donald trump on september 13th, two days after the 9/11 attacks that destroyed the world trade center. >> i have a lot of property down there, it was not affected by what happened at the world trade center. >> the they are calling for donald trump to return monies that he applied for and received from it business recovery grant program, designed to help small businesses in that area. in an open letter, congressman nadler, wrote, you claim to be one of the biggest, richest developer in the city. you took money from a grant program designed to help from
the litsds guy. we need no further proof you are a small man. jerry nather, who representing the east side of manhattan. how did donald trump, apply for relief from a 9/11 fund. >> we had to fight for this fund. there was no grants until this. we got that because we knew that small business people. the pizza shot, the shoe shine places. they couldn't play back locals. their customers were gone for a year or more. to see him come n push the litsds guys aside and take $150,000 for this money for 40 wall street, valued at 400,000,
disgusting and small. the state government handing out, violated the federal designs. >> what resource. he mooches all the time. mooching on the tuition payments of students on of the so-called trump university. i thought him years ago. he was going to get a morn company, for the developmentment, based on built on twist ed land.
negotiated it well. the city of new york, in a mooching off, and cheating off anyone he can. >> thanks for bringing this to our attention. >> thank you. >> in the war room. veterans of the clinton war room are advising hill rye clinton on how to handle trump. this is my body of proof. proof of less joint pain and clearer skin.
this is my body of proof that i can fight psoriatic arthritis with humira. humira works by targeting and helping to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to both joint and skin symptoms. it's proven to help relieve pain, stop further joint damage, and clear skin in many adults. humira is the number #1 prescribed biologic for psoriatic arthritis. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. want more proof? ask your rheumatologist about humira. what's your body of proof?
great time for a shiny floor wax, no? not if you just put the finishing touches on your latest masterpiece. timing's important. comcast business knows that. that's why you can schedule an installation at a time that works for you. even late at night, or on the weekend, if that's what you need. because you have enough to worry about. i did not see that coming. don't deal with disruptions. get better internet installed on your schedule. comcast business. built for business.
>> mark pen and jeff garron told hillary clinton her best move now against donald trump is on to go positive not negative. mark pen told polit koe, establishing positives is far more important to winning, why spend energy, it is like beating a dead horse. hillary clinton stayed on attack against donald trump today. >> just yesterday, we learned the truth about donald trump's big talk about helping veteran t turned out it wasn't until the press shamed him that he actually made the donations he had promised.
for months, it was all just a publicity stunt. donald trump himself is a fraud. i have to tell you, i think that donald trump has disqualified himself, completely. >> with 160 days left, joining us in the last word war room tonight, jeffrey pol ok, and a polster for hillary clinton, priors usa. and what do you make of this advice? it is fascinating to be in the war rooms, where they are looking at these astro nomically high negatives, is it possible that you can't drive donald trump's negatives any higher. >> you have to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. you have to have a two-prong approach.
both negatives are high. donald trump is a ruthless business man who will take you down by any means possible. hillary clinton, how does he do this? you need to beef up your surrogates. okay, beef up who is out there talking for us. figure out who is out there, who can take off the gloves, take it to the streets, and play the game donald trump are playing, no rules in this game. that is the key here. elizabeth warren gets under his skin, shakes him down. the other part of it, you have to figure out how you are going to be positive. he she'd says a mettle that it will resonate. there are parents, with two, three kids, trying to figure
out, if they put their kids in daycare or not. figure out, how does she talk to on those people. he had that great video, that made us feel we were with her, she was with us. showing a diverse group of people that told their stories every day. and that is what we need to see her do. what is she going to do for the people? what is her 2016 "yes, we can." >> i think of the rubio campaign, you can't do two things in the same speech. he would go up, four and a half minutes of stand up comedy, that was effective. con man, then, 35 minutes of substantive material, that nobody could cover not one word of the policy. it seems to be me, if you are going to do this on the same
day, if you have to get something in, hillary clinton called him a fraud. that sound ed effective. >> you are telling me substance doesn't sell. that is the point, first of all, she she, she saturday presumptive nominee. far be it for me to do something, of the war rooms, people like us sat in the beginning. forgit about rubio at the end. talk about the beginning this guy's negatives are so they let him go. you know what happened, his numbers did change. i of course they should continue
to take it to him. and you are going to you can't let this guy down. ever time you put him on the defensive, it seems to mess up. >> wob of the donald trump will make up in the morning going negative. if you get their first, you to take if to him. get him in the elizabeth warren has done that to him. it will be define him now.
in the primary, she is still dealing with bernie, the notice speaks to the primarily voters. they want a fight. she is accomplishing both things. >> it deals with the prblg in the pollings, bernie sanders, beats -- she is stuck in a tie with him. to see her fighting against donald trump is not a preview of what will happen. is what she has to show she knows how to do. >> aspirational, too. that is important for her to do as well. >> we will have to leave it there. we appreciate it. >> new later, the last word about this knight n 1968.
. golf tournaments, getting as far away from trump as possible. one leaving texas, and moving to mexico. we will have more on the harm donald trump is having on his businesses. here is how it looked on the campaign trail today it. >> a close race between hillary clinton and donald trump. >> i think that donald trump disqualified him. >> caught up with nancy french. here is more of what she has tow say about the potential. >> this is the more fds that donald trump himself, is a
fraud. >> the latest controversial with trump university, may be giving one of the best lines. >> he is trying to same america, the way he is at. >> if we do come out with the noination, donald trump is toast. >> joining me now, bernie sanders' wife, jane sanders. >> we don't agree with super delegates. >> the senator sanders, trying to win this state. i wonder why they are back in california.
>> ending a relationship with the trump doral golf course, because it could not find a sponsor to replace cadillac, who did not renew the contract to sponsor that golf tournament this year. the news comes as trump potelebooks dropped, price, reservations at trump hotels declined 59%, trump hotels in new york and las vegas, dropping 74%. msnbc political analyst. 9 golf tournament, the trump
name is toxic to any sponsor. donald to mexico for the golf tournament. >> i don't know about you, i am eating a lot less trump steaks these days. i am not a branding xerl. isus to stand for luxury. trump stands for trump the guy, the man. society, if you are going to stay in the trump hotel, going up in downtown d.c., ru making a statement now, your decision to stay at a trump hotel, to order anything trump relating it will be tied up with what you think
of donald trump. with his -- nobody wants to be associated with trump. this can't be a good business move so far. >> this is what he told his audience about this. >> today, in golf, anybody hear what happens? they moved the world golf champion, they moved the all -- it is all going to be settled, i if i become your preponderance, this will stop. >> the president does have the power to tell golf tournaments
now, tonight's last word. there will be no presidential campaign debate in california before voters go to the polls on tuesday. there was a poeblthd of a hillary clinton/bernie sanders debate, bernie sanders desperately wanted to do it. jimmy kimmel ignited the possibility of a debate in california. bernie asked, hillary clinton backed out of an agreement to debate me before the june 7th primary. ru prepared to debate before the vote? >> yes, i am how much he is
going pay me? >> so, there will be no debate. no debate. in our most important state. california has more people than other any state by a giant order of magnitude. california has more rich people, working people, young people, old people. we think of iowa and nebraska, as our big agriculture state. familiar condition was the a separate state, it would be the largest in the world. high tech, high finance, service industries, oil production, and a huge amount of international trade at sea ports and borders.
there are more to discuss in california, than in any other state. iowa gets the candidates, to the issues like ethanol, and california again gets no debate. in 1968. the woont -- it was a one-on-one deba debate. the debate occurred on this night. june 1st, 1968. mccarthy, facing the late comer to the campaign, robert ken ski he wanted to decided to bet his
campaign campaign. bobby kennedy said he would withdraw from the race if he lost k a full video is not pull lees available. there is a full audience recording, here is some of what bobby kennedy had to say. >> i think that based on that experience, and the work i have done, as well as the executive presence in the, the cuban missile crisis, praches there is something as thom as jefferson said, standing for the best last hope of man kind which wree in this country. it is it is the the to up people i will debticate myself, and the
choice, really, is up to you. i three days later, the people of california chose bobby kennedy. tonight, june 1st, the night bobby kennedy, on this night t give him the last word. >> i will dedicate myself no matter what happens, to the bedroomation of this people, and the choice is up to you. i am glad it is that way.
>> tonight, how mitt romney and marco rubio laid the ground work for clinton's case and how the trump campaign is responding. >> at trump university we teach success. that's what it's all about, success. it's going to happen to you. >> then. >> the president used the word rattled when he talked about world leaders with respect to donald trump. trump responded by saying it's good, it's good they're rattled. >> we're not doing a trump hotel business deal. >> my interview with secretary of state john kerry and donald trump's puzzling takes on peter teal and what book he says he's reading right now. author michael wolf on his new trump profile when all in starts right now.
