they call him. and know that his life mattered to a whole lot of people of all races, of all ages. with an open heart we can worry less about which side has been wronged and worry more about joining sides to do right. >> calling for unity, president obama pays tribute to the five slain dallas police officers, and tries to ease the tensions felt across the country. plus, it's finally happened. bernie sanders has joined forces with hillary clinton, capping off a contentious presidential primary. and britain's david cameron is getting ready to leave downing street for the last time as prime minister. we'll have live coverage from london. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west, and this is "way too early."
good morning. it's wednesday, july 13th, i'm jonathan capehart. president obama carried a difficult mantel yesterday, the nation's first black president addressed the high profile deaths of two black men by police, while eulogizing the five police officers slain on the streets of dallas. on the flight down he phoned the family members of philando castile and alton sterling to offer his condolences and once in dallas he tried to reassure the crowd that the nation is not as divided as things may seem. but he didn't shy away from discussing bias. that americans must confront certain truths in their homes and hearts. he drew a standing ovation as he invoked the heavy burden america's police officers carry as five chairs sat empty to represent the five fallen dallas officers. >> what chief brown has said is true. that so much of the tensions between police departments, and minority communities that they
serve is because we ask the police to do too much, and we ask too little of ourselves. these men, this department, this is the america i know. and today in this audience i see people who have protested on behalf of criminal justice reform grieving alongside police officers. i see people who mourn for the five officers we lost, but also weep for the families of alton sterling and philando castile. in this audience i see what's possible. i see what's possible when we recognize that we are one american family. all deserving of equal treatment. all deserving equal respect. all children of god. that's the america i know.
>> sharing the stage were the vice president and his wife dr. jill biden, as well as texas senators ted cruz and john cornyn. former president george w. bush brought an impassioned message of unity, as well. >> too often we judge other groups by their worst examples. while judging ourselves by our best intentions. and this is -- at our best we know we have one country. one future. one destiny. we do not want the unity of grief. nor do we want the unity of fear. we want the unity of hope. affection. and high purpose. >> president obama is set to host a town hall on race tomorrow. a number of memorials and funerals for the slain officers continue over the next days. authorities in baton rouge have arrested three suspects they say are connected to a plot
to kill police officers there. it began with a burglary at a pawn shop early saturday morning where officials say eight handguns and a bb gun were stolen. one 17-year-old suspect, who was apprehended on the scene, is alleged to have told police they stole the guns and were going to get bullets with the intention of shooting police. two of the handguns have yet to be recovered, and authorities say one suspect remains at large. officials say the threat, which they call credible, justifies the heavy police presence at protests this week in that city. last night in indiana, donald trump sought to bolster his position as the law and order candidate. >> the police are not just part of our society, our police are the best of our society. remember that. we have to remember that. they represent our highest ideals, our greatest values, and our most noble characteristics.
when our police are attacked, our entire nation is attacked. the hostility against our polite has to end. and it has to end right now. the two people that were killed in louisiana and minnesota, it was tough. it was tough to watch. for everybody here, it was tough to watch. we have to figure it out. we have to figure out what's going on. was it training? was it something else? it could have been something else. we have to take care of everybody. remember that. but we can never, ever forget the hundreds of thousands of great deals and great things that our police all over the country do, and nobody recognizes them for what they do. and when there's a problem, as bad as these two situations
were, and i personally think they were -- they were bad. i hated -- i hated watching it. but as bad as they were, they get broadcast all over the world for days and days and all of the good things, which are magnified thousands of times, nobody talks about. >> donald trump seems to be down to his final four choices for vice president, praising governors mike pence and chris christie, former speaker newt gingrich and senator jeff sessions of alabama. last night trump appeared with pence in the governor's home state of indiana. but in an interview with "the wall street journal" on the way to the event, trump said he wanted attack dog and that he had not seen enough to measure pence's fighting spirit. last night, pence came out swinging against hillary clinton, while trump continued to weigh his options. >> hillary and her party have been sliding so far to bernie's leftist agenda it's hard to keep track of it. the truth of the matter is, that
i just have to tell you from my heart after looking at the direction that their party has gone, farther and farther to the left, to paraphrase the director of the fbi, i think it would be extremely careless to elect hillary clinton as the next president of the united states. >> i often joke, you'll be calling up mike pence. i don't know whether he's going to be your governor, or your vice president, who the hell knows. >> while governor pence offered a vigorous defense of trump during the rally, earlier in the day he resisted questions about his disagreement with trump's proposal to ban muslims from entering the u.s. >> how do you share that ticket if you have a fundamental disagreement with him on the muslim ban? >> well, i -- look, i served in congress for 12 years. i've been a governor for 3 1/2 years. i haven't agreed with every one of my republican colleagues or democrat colleagues on every issue. but i'm supporting donald trump because we need change in this country.
>> governor chris christie appeared with trump earlier this week in virginia and his office tells politico he'll be traveling out of state today, and fox news announced it was suspending newt gingrich as attention builds around the possibility he'll be trump's pick. >> what could you add to a donald trump ticket as a vp? >> lots of gray hair. we'll see what happens over the next two or three days. it's a little bit like the apprentice. you find out sooner or later who the last one standing is. le. >> at long last, bernie sanders has endorsed hillary clinton. 37 days elapsed between the time clinton mathematically became the nominee and tuesday when sanders endorsed her. in new hampshire, the state that was home to his first primary win, sanders rap soddized at length about his vision and how he has shaped the party platform and hillary clinton's own campaign. >> together we have begun a
political revolution, to transform america, and that revolution continues. our campaign won the primaries and caucuses in 22 states sand when the roll call at the democratic national convention is announced, it will show that we won almost 1900 delegates. secretary clinton goes in to the convention with 389 more pleked delegates than we have. and a lot more superdelegates. secretary clinton has won the
democratic nominating process. and i intend to do everything i can to make certain she will be the next president of the united states. >> both senator sanders and i believe anyone who is willing to work hard should be able to find a job that pays well enough to support a family. and bernie is right, $7.25 an hour is a starvation wage. and we're going to say no to attacks on working families, and no to bad trade deals and unfair trade practices, including the trans-pacific partnership. thanks to the new proposal, senator sanders and i worked on together, for families making less than 125,000 a year, we
will eliminate tuition at those schools altogether. >> clip also let it be known that she, too, accepts donations of $27, a nod to the senator's refrain on the stump. not all were thrilled. some sanders supporters reportedly walked out of the event. donald trump tried to capitalize on their disaffection, where else, on twitter. quote, to all the bernie voters who want to stop bad trade deals and global special interests, we welcome you with open arms. people first. bernie sanders has abandoned his supporters by endorsing pro-war, pro-tpp, pro-wall street crooked hillary clinton. and, bernie sanders endorsing crooked hillary clinton is like occupy wall street endorsing goldman sachs. clinton gives a speech today in springfield, illinois, on race in america. and what happened in dallas. it will be on the site where lincoln delivered his speech that a house divided against itself cannot stand. congressional republicans
hoping for answers about hillary clinton's e-mails certainly didn't get any yesterday from the attorney general. during nearly five hours of testimony before the house judiciary committee, loretta lynch repeatedly refused to discuss details in the clinton case. a stance that drew widespread scorn from gop lawmakers. >> your refusal to answer questions regarding one of the most important investigations of someone who seeks to serve in the highest office in this land is an abdication of your responsibility. >> i apologize for interrupting you. i've only got five minutes and you've been very good at burning up the time and stonewalling. >> i apologize for wasting so much time here, which has really not been very productive. >> i never thought i'd say this, i actually, and i say this with due respect, attorney general, i miss eric holder. >> lynch's testimony came a day after house republicans formally asked the justice department and the fbi to investigate whether clinton lied to congress last
foul when she said she did not have classified information on her server. today marks a new political era for great britain. that nation is bidding farewell to david cameron as its prime minister, and welcoming theresa may as its new leader. for more let's go to lucy kavanop who is outside 10 downing street in london. what's the time line in terms of cameron handing over power. >> good morning, jonathan. we know that david cameron had a sort of last final supper at the address behind me 10 downing street last night. we know that it was a curry take-out dinner. this morning just moments ago we saw him step out of the house, get into his car. if this was an emotion or difficult day for him he certainly didn't show it with any facial expressions. he's scheduled to head over to buckingham palace to meet with queen elizabeth in order to hand over his resignation. and of course theresa may, who will be britain's second-ever female prime minister, is also due at buckingham palace to take over the reins.
she is at age 59 a hard-nosed political survivor, no stranger to politics, to fighting in parliament. her supporters say she has the stature and experience necessary -- negotiations coming up ahead with the european union. but a historic day, an unprecedented day here in the united kingdom. jonathan? >> lucy, thank you very much. still ahead on "way too early," the safety of tesla's self-driving car technology is under more scrutiny after a third reported crash. plus, supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg doubles down on her criticism of donald trump, and now he's firing back. those stories and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back.

surges? >> well, jonathan, according to analysts, they say that this was just a surge of positive momentum, and this is all off the back of that report that came out last friday saying that there was bigger than expected job growth. and that seemed to outweigh fears about brexit, outweigh fears about the fed rate hike, and also outweigh fierce about a slowdown in china and the u.s. now, of course, another story that we're watching right now, it seems that there's been another setback for the driverless car movement. essentially what we know right now is that the tesla-x has had another crash, and though its unclear at the moment whether or not this crash had anything to do with the car's autopilot feature, at the same point this is a company that's already under investigation from the s.e.c., and the big question going forward is whether or not this is going to weigh with investigators. jonathan? >> all right. hadley gamble live from london thank you. time now for sports, and major league baseball's midsummer classic. to san diego, where the american league earned home field advantage in the world series
after a 4-2 win last night. kansas city duo eric posener and salvador perez each homered in a three-run second inning. an rbi single in the fourth earned mvp honors. the national league had a chance to turn the tide while trailing 4-2 with the bases loaded in the eighth inning but with two outs and the count full diaz strikes out looking -- looking it's the fourth consecutive all-star game victory for the american league. fans also got to see retiring red sox david ortiz in his tenth and final all-star game. the boston slugger had two plate appearances and took his base after a somewhat anti-climactic showdown with pitcher fernandez in the third inning. he was removed at first base for a pinch-runner and was then greeted with hugs on the field. there's the hug. let's get a check on your weather now with nbc
meteorologist steve sosna. steve? >> good morning, jonathan. we have the summer sizzle, let's try that again, coming at you across much of the country here. with that sizzle you get some storms this time of year. that's what we have across kansas here this morning. one cluster tracking to the south and east here. much of the country, though, is fairly quiet. that's good news here. if you're getting your day started. new york, philadelphia, boston, it looks good. it's a little bit more humid here this morning. that will come into consideration as we will be sweating here the next couple of days. check this out, temperatures in the 90s tomorrow from d.c. all the way down to houston. so it's a widespread heat. that will continue right up the east coast. check this out, 95 in new york city on friday. so we will be sweating it out. but the heat doesn't last too long this time around, as we will see some relief coming here towards the weekend. but all eyes on philadelphia tomorrow will feel like 105. feels fantastic, right, jonathan? >> oh, my god. 105? >> okay. >> reality, steve. >> yep. >> thanks a lot for that. still ahead, amid deepest
now let's get a check on the morning's other headlines and the control room and louis burgdorf. >> good morning, jonathan. we have an update to a story from yesterday. the feud between supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg and donald trump begins. justice ginsburg told cnn yesterday he is a faker, he has
no consistency about him. he says whatever comes to his head at the moment. he really has an ego. how has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? the press seems to be very gentle with him on that. in response, trump tweeted around 1:00 a.m. this morning, justice ginsburg of the u.s. supreme court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. her mind is shot. resign. i don't know where this could escalate from here, jonathan, but we will keep an eye on it. another story this morning, the fbi is ending a 45-year manhunt in the nation's only unsolved hijacking case. d.b. cooper, the man responsible for the 1971 hijacking of a boeing 727 plane is no longer being sought by the u.s. government. cooper extorted $200,000 in ransom and then parachuted from the plane vanishing over the pacific northwest. the fbi says it is no longer pursuing cooper, and is giving up hope of ever closing that file. pretty incredible there. now finally this morning, police chief david brown has impressed so many people with his candor in the aftermath of
the dallas shooting. here's how he began his remarks to the police during the memorial service yesterday. >> when i was a teenager, and start liking girls, i could never find the right words to express myself. so being a music fan of 1970s rhythm and blues love songs, i put together a strategy to recite the lyrics to get a date. so for girls i liked, i would pull out some al green, or some teddy pendergrass, or some isley brothers, but for people i love, if i fell in love with a girl, oh, i had to dig down deep, get some stevie wonder.
so today, i'm going to pull out some stevie wonder for these families. to the ocean covers, every mountain high, and i've got to say, always, i'll be loving you always. and there's no greater love than this. that these five men gave their lives for all of us. >> powerful words there from the dallas police chief. from there he introduced the commander in chief, president obama, who began his remarks this way. >> i'm so glad i met michelle first, because she loves stevie wonder. >> jonathan, you just can't go wrong with stevie wonder.
what a song, and what a way to use it in his speech. >> yeah, yeah, and the president's -- with just the right amount of levity at that moment. louis, thank you very much. that does it for me and "way too early." coming up on "morning joe," indiana governor mike pence is the latest republican to audition for donald trump's open vp spot. but is he the attack dog trump is looking for? plus more on the memorial service where the fallen dallas police officers as mike barnicle writes in dallas, our president meets the moment. that and much more coming up next on "morning joe."

first, the shootings in minnesota and baton rouge. the protests. then the targeting of police by the shooter here. an act not just of demonstrated violence, but of racial hatred. this is the deepest fault lines of our democracy have suddenly been exposed, perhaps even widened. we wonder if an african-american community that feels unfairly targeted by police and police departments that feel unfairly
