tv Way Too Early MSNBC June 8, 2016 2:30am-3:01am PDT
the former secretary of state has claimed victory in the democratic primary, but bernie sanders is ignoring clinton's message and refusing to call it quits. the vermont senator isn't dropping out and he's not conceding the race. plus, donald trump gives the speech his republican allies have been waiting for. and instead of his trademark off the cuff style, he turns to the teleprompter. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west. this is "way too early." >> good morning, it's wednesday, june 8th. i'm jonathan capehart. last night, hillary clinton claimed victory in the democratic primary but bernie sanders vows to fight on to washington, d.c. and then the convention in philadelphia. clinton is the projected winner
in new jersey, new mexico and winner in south dakota. but bernie sanders is the projected winner in north dakota and montana. but the big one, california, at this hour, still too close to call this morning. just 61% of the vote in and as we have watched the returns overnight, bernie sanders has closed the gap. even so, the delegate math says it all. hillary clinton is leading by a commanding margin. she entered her brooklyn, new york, rally to the ebullient crowd, invoking her 2008 concession speech delivered eight years ago to the day. clinton reflected on the historic night and she extended an olive branch to bernie sanders and his supporters while contrasting her vision with that of donald trump. >> it may be hard to see tonight, but we are all standing under a glass ceiling right now. but don't worry. we're not smashing this one. thanks to you, we have reached a milestone.
the first time -- the first time in our nation's history that a woman will be a major party's nominee for president of the united states. cooperation is better than conflict. unity is better than division. empowerment is better than resentment. and bridges are better than walls. when he says let's make america great again, that is code for let's take america backwards. when donald trump says a distinguished judge born in indiana can't do his job because of his mexican heritage -- [ audience boos ] or he mocks a reporter with
disabilities -- or calls women pigs -- it goes against everything we stand for. we believe we should lift each other up, not tear each other down. >> according to the white house, president obama spoke with both hillary clinton and bernie sanders to congratulate them on a hard fought primary that energized the party. according to a statement he congratulated secretary clinton for securing the delegates to clinch the nomination. and it's shaping up to be a big thursday for bernie sanders. he'll meet with the president, confer with senate minority lead leader harry reid and hold a rally in the nation's capital. last night, senator sanders greeted a raucous crowd in santa monica. he began his speech framing the scope of his campaign from fringe candidate to winner of
state after state. it sounded like it might go one way, but as he pressed on, it became clear he wasn't finished fighting yet. >> real change never occurs from the top on down. always from the bottom on up. that is the history of america whether it is the creation of the trade union movement, the civil rights movement, the women's movement, the gay movement. and that is what our movement is about. next tuesday, we continue the fight in the last primary in washington, d.c. and then we take our fight for social, economic, racial and environmental justice to philadelphia, pennsylvania.
i am pretty good in arithmetic and i know that the fight in front of us is a very, very steep fight, but we will continue to fight for every vote and every delegate we can get. thank you all. the struggle continues. >> but it appears that bernie sanders will have to do more with less. "the new york times" reporting he's set to lay off half of his campaign staff today as they scale down ahead of the convention. after a day of unprecedented criticism from the top ranks of his party, donald trump seemed to walk back his comments about whether judges of the mexican descent or muslim faith could treat him fairly. the presumptive republican nominee said it is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack of people with mexican heritage.
the american justice system relies on fair and impartial judges all judges should be held to that standard. i do not feel that one's heritage makes them incapable of being impartial, but based on the rulings i have received in the trump university civil case, i feel justified in questioning whether i am receiving a fair trial. trump said i do not intend to comment on this matter any further. and in scripted remarks read from the teleprompters last night, he looked to move on. >> you've given me the honor to lead the republican party to victory this fall. and i understand the responsibility of carrying the mantle. i will never ever let you down. too much work, too many people. blood, sweat and tears. never going to let you down. to those who voted for someone else in either party, i'll work hard to earn your support and i will work very hard to earn that support. to all of those bernie sanders voters who have been left out in
the cold by a rigged system of super delegates, we welcome you with open arms. believe me. the chairman of the republican national committee reince priebus responded to trump's remarks. quote, great victory speech by donald trump tonight. exactly the right approach and perfectly delivered. the republican party establishment was forced to denounce the statements of their front-runner yesterday while left in the awkward position of supporting him. the early edition of "the new york daily news" summed up house speaker paul ryan's comments on trump -- i'm with racist. and with ryan tried to talk about the poverty agenda yesterday he was quickly dragged into the controversy surrounding trump. >> claiming a person can't do their job because of their race is like the textbook definition of a racist comment. i think that should be disavowed. it is absolutely unacceptable. but do i believe that hillary clinton is the answer, no, i do not. i believe that we have more
common ground likelihood of get policies enacted with him than her. speaker ryan wasn't alone as leading republicans had stern messages for their party's standard-bearer. >> i think a good place to start would be to apologize for the various totally inappropriate things he said over the last couple of weeks. another thing i'd like to see him do is get on script. i think it's time for him to look like a serious candidate for president. which means that you need to think before you speak. you need to apologize when you make a mistake. and get on script. he's running for the most important job in the country. some would argue in the world. i think there's a certain threshold of credibility that needs to be met. >> well, listen, i like many other voters i'm watching and listening and assessing what he
says around what he does. i think that's what millions of voters are doing. and that's the way the democratic process is meant to operate. >> how long will that assessment process last? >> i think voters are going to do that from now until election day. and i'm giving it time and watching and assessing. and now other republicans are completely abandoning ship including senator mark kirk of illinois who faces one of the most daunting re-elections this year. and who told nbc's hallie jackson he's revoking his endorsement. >> i cannot support him because of what he said about the judge that was too racist and bigoted for me. >> that was the final straw for you? >> that was the final straw for me. >> do you hope other members of your party do what you're doing now? >> i do i think we should send a strong message that racism and bigotry will not be tolerated in the party of lincoln. >> some have said this is a political move, what do you say
to them? >> i'm doing what's best for the state of illinois. an egyptair jet has made an emergency landing in uzbekistan after a bomb threat. somebody called cairo airport security saying there was a bomb on flight ms-955. three hours after it took off for beijing. uzbek authorities tell nbc no actual bomb was found during their search. cairo's airport has received three phone calls warning of bombs on board planes in the past week. and one more story breaking this morning. two f-16 fighter jets assigned to the air national guard crashed overnight. it happened near a military operating area in jefferson county, georgia. in a statement military officials say, both pilots ejected safely after midair collisions while performing routine night flying operations. the air force will be conducting a safety investigation. this comes a week after an air force thunderbird crashed in colorado. the thunderbirds returned to
flying yesterday. a michigan man is in police custody this morning after allegedly hitting a group of bicycli bicyclists. killing five of them, injuring four more. it happened yesterday just north of kalamazoo when a pickup truck plowed into the riders. the city started to get phone calls a half hour with reports about a truck driving erratically and then disaster struck. >> a loss, to describe how i feel. i'm at a loss to describe the impact to the community from these incidents. >> police at this point are not releasing the identity of the 50-year-old driver who fled from the scene of the crash. kalamazoo, no stranger to tragedy on the road this year. yesterday, lawyers for jason dalton the uber driver accused of killing six people while on a shooting rampage earlier this year announced he plans to plead not guilty by reason of
