tv The Last Word With Lawrence O Donnell MSNBC June 1, 2016 10:00pm-11:01pm PDT
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 good 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 me 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 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. 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 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 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. the man that wants him to return that money is up next. >> on this day in 1968.
a heart attack doesn't care if you run everyday, or if you're young or old. no matter who you are a heart attack can happen without warning. if you've had a heart attack, a bayer aspirin regimen can help prevent another one. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. bayer aspirin. 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
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. it'sand your doctor at yoto maintain your health.a because in 5 days, 10 hours and 2 minutes you are going to be 67. and on that day you will walk into a room
where 15 people will be waiting... 12 behind the sofa, 2 behind the table and 1 and a half behind a curtain. family: surprise! but only one of them will make a life long dream come true. great things are ahead of you when your health is ready for them. at humana, we can help you with a personalized plan for your health for years to come. >> 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 twisted land. i got them to take millions, xwended to build up.
i didn't suffer at all during 911, then, he is taking $150,000 of taxpayer money. >> i am sure he was i am sure every dollar that he can conceivably get. he took 40-year tax abatement for the it is worth an estimated $400 million dollars, he 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. don't let dust and allergies get between you and life's beautiful moments. with flonase allergy relief, they wont. when we breathe in allergens, our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance.
flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. flonase outperforms the #1 non-drowsy allergy pill. so you can seize those moments, wherever you find them. flonase. six is greater than one changes everything. my m...about my toothpasteice. she eveand mouthwash.ice... but she's a dentist so...i kind of have to listen. she said "jen, go pro with crest pro-health advanced." advance to healthier gums... ...and stronger teeth from day one. using crest toothpaste and mouthwash makes my... ...whole mouth feel awesome. and my teeth are stronger too. crest-pro health advanced... ...is superior to colgate total... ...in these 5 areas dentists check. this check up? so good. go pro with crest pro-health advanced. mom's right...again! and i quit smoking with i'm chantix. i had a lot of doubts going in. i was a smoker. hands down, it was, that's who i was. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped
reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lot of fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
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 acly 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 sounded 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. the great the great president ial . you both have a
perfect driving record. perfect. no tickets. no accidents. that is until one of you clips a food truck, ruining your perfect record. yeah. now you would think your insurance company would cut you some slack, right? no. your insurance rates go through the roof... your perfect record doesn't get you anything. anything. perfect. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance.

(announcer) namenda xr doesn't change
how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney, or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, he's protected me. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at namenedaxr.com. but so we don't have tormin wad to get clean. charmin ultra soft gets you clean without the wasteful wadding. it has comfort cushions you can see that are softer...

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 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. 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.
hillary flunks donald on trump u. let's play hardball. hillary clinton donald trump hard today. clinton called the republican nominee to be a fraud who took advantage of vulnerable americans and that's her line of attack. trump shows no sign of toning down his on rhetoric. he has also targeted the judge in the case against trump university hitting him in campaign rallies and interviews as someone he says is biassed against him. >> judge has been unfair, not done a good job. he's been very unfair. i will win the trump university case. i already am as far as i'm concerned. >> i have a judge who is hater of donald trump. he's hater. his name is gonzolo. i'm getting railroaded by a legal system that, frankly, they should be ashamed.
