tv The Place for Politics 2016 MSNBC July 27, 2016 9:00am-10:01am PDT
an interesting version of it. i cannot -- i guess, we're going to keep on with our show, we don't have andrea mitchell yet. go ahead. >> tamron, one other takeaway with donald trump said, he said that president obama is ignorant in his remarks -- >> the most -- >> and he did say he ended up also saying that president obama's the worst president in his lifetime. president obama speaks tonight. and that kind of sets up a lot of the drama. the anticipation, maybe for the most featured headline speaker that we're going to see besides hillary clinton tomorrow night. >> listen, i also think mark it's easy for people to expect democrats here to go after donald trump in these comments and they will say the media is bielsed this way or there that, and those things are all part of the process we know. what is happening right now at the rnc? what's happening with reince priebus as they watch this? he's their guy, there's no choice now. >> it is a tale of two political parties. we saw a lot of disruption on monday night here in philadelphia. of the bernie supporters still ended up walking out of the
convention, but you look at the elected leaders who decided not to show up in cleveland last week, and that is the bigger takeaway. >> all right. thank you, mark. rob ryaner, you owned this audience. [ applause ] standing colleague, andrea mitchell is taking over live coverage right now special edition of "andrea mitchell reports." we are live at the democratic convention in philadelphia. commander in chief, the democrat's big prime time speaker taking direct aim at donald trump's readiness to become president. >> to what i think is scary is a president who doesn't know their stuff. and doesn't seem to have an interest in learning. >> donald trump knows nothing about foreign policy. and nor, nor should he based upon his background. but the thing that bothers me,
willie, is i don't see any attempt for him to go out and get people who really know on the republican side. >> and donald trump is a one-man wrecking crew when it comes to the alliances that we have with other nations. >> explainer in chief. in the year of outsider, bill clinton tries to take back the message of change. >> for this time hillary is uniquely qualified to seize the opportunities and reduce the risk we face. and she is still the best darn change maker i have ever known. [ applause ] you -- >> glass ceiling shattered. this historic moment for women, my take, coming up. plus my exclusive talk with clinton pal terry mckau la as he throws shade with on the compromise with bernie sanders.
good day, i'maround ma richl where the stars will shine tonight, the musical stars rehearsing right now. big names though, political names including president obama, vice president biden, michael bloomberg, and vice presidential nominee tim kaine making the case for hillary clinton to the nation. but right now the clinton campaign trying to put out a political fire that by clinton friend virginia governor terry mccalla. it's all about that transpacific partnership. a trade agreement that has fueled the frustration of sanders supporters have with the party establishment. the governor poured more gas on that fire in my conversation with him just a few hours ago. joining me here in philadelphia, nbc's kristin welker, kristin, can we play a little bit of that q & a with terry mccalla at the virginia caucus this morning? let's be clear about what you mean about what hillary clinton
would do if elected president. is she going to walk away from the deal she made? >> i think what she can do is what shetz the ability, negotiate something to the best interest of everybody. i do think that pushing ttp very hard. this is president obama's top priority. he thinks he can get a vote done during a lame duck session. he's going to meet with all the governors out in des moines, iowa. we're hoping we can get something past. >> bernie sanders has been promised by hillary clinton there won't be even a vote in the lame duck session. >> well, i don't know about that. the president wants this. this is the president's top trade initiative. i can tell you all, secretary he's been working hard. they want to see something done. president obama's top priority. so hillary disagrees with it. she doesn't support it, that's her right not to do it. she says things have to be fixed in order to go forward. but the ft. you know, this is his top trade initiative, and i could just tell you his whole team was in des moines to meet with all the governors last week saying this is imperative for
the country. >> governor, can you understand how when bernie sanders and his supporters don't trust hillary clinton to live up to her commitments, that when you, one of her closest friends or from her campaign chairman, when you say that she would go along with tpp once -- >> no, no, no -- >> with changes or with a trade deal. >> let's be very clear. only if the changes she wants are implemented and everybody's in agreement, and she's not going forward as it is today. but same position with senator kaine is, we don't support unless she says the changes she wants are made. all right, president obama does want thpt as you know. >> so, the people, the delegates on the floor of the convention and the larger they are going to be more suspicious of hillary clinton because they think you're sending a signal. >> i'm not sending a signal. >> that she will compromise away her commitments.
>> there are things she does not agree with. unless she can get those to the point she's happy with, she's not going to support it. that's what senator kaine said the other day. said the same thing. if she can't do it because of change, she's not going to support it. this is a top priority for president obama. he just met with all the governors. we all the governors met with the president, he pushed it very hard. this is a top trade initiative for him. hillary doesn't agree with the president on this issue. people disagree, and unless she's happy and can get the changes she wants, we're not going to see it from her, but you might see it from president obama. this is his top trade initiative. >> thanks everyone. >> what else can i tell you? >> appreciate it. so terry mcauliffe muddying the waters about trade. kristin welker still with me, they have tried to put this fire out. here's another rupture with bernie sanders. just as we're coming to the big moments at the convention. kristin. >> reporter: andrea, that's right. the timing not great for the
clinton campaign, john podesta clinton's campaign chairman earlier today speaking with reporters, said look, she doesn't support tpp now, she won't support if she's elected. as you say trying to put that fire out. but this does raise questions if you are a sanders supporter of course there have been some deep divisions to start off this convention, and yesterday it felt like there was some real unity here. you did have those sanders protesters whoalked out, however, this arena felt largely unified as this type of headline could potentially undermine that. so i anticipate we're going to get some strong pushback throughout the day from the clinton campaign and they are going to try to turn the page on this and put the focus on president obama who's going to be taking the podium tonight. he's going to lay out the case for secretary clinton based on his personal working relationship with her. he's going to argue she does meet the commander in chief test and he is going to be talking about some of those key issues
that he is uniquely suited to speak to, andrea, but this is a problem also in terms of trust because if you look at the poll 68% of voters, according to a recent poll say they don't trust secretary clinton and so much of this convention has been about rebuilding trust. bill clinton's speech last night when he spoke in personal terms and this could potentially undermine some of those efforts. so the clinton campaign is really going to be focussed on trying to turn the page today, andrea. >> thanks so much, kristin welker. all of this drama is playing out here in philadelphia, donald trump taking the stage and trying to amplify the democrat's disagreements. his latest comments a at press conference at dorrell in the last hour. >> they will go for tpp and vote it in very shortly after the election if she wins. she'll change a come mo ma, she'll change a paragraph of the 6,000 page document. she saw me talking about tpp,
she realized that she couldn't defend it. her special interests are pushing her hard. she's bought and sold by the special interests. the day she gets in, which hopefully will never happen, she will approve, or shortly thereafter, tpp. >> and katie tur is in florida, katie, also made a lot of news on russia. and he called president obama, i think, the worst president or the least informed president in history. >> reporter: yeah. he's done that before, but the most news worthy moment of this press conference really came when he was speaking about russia. we were asking him about the hacks, how he felt about it, does he think it's a good idea for the russian government or any government frankly to get involved in american politics, and he went on to say, russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing, referring to those e-mails that are missing from hillary clinton's server. so he actively was encouraging the russians or any foreign
country to get involved and benefitted him because he wanted to see that. i asked him if he has any qualms about that, qualms about a foreign government getting involved in american politics, he dismissed that. interestingly though, his running mate, governor mike pence just released a statement right after that news conference that said, the fbi will geto the bottom of who is behind the hacking. if it is russia and they are interfering in our elections, i can assure you both parties and the united states government will ensure there are some serious consequences. that is die metically opposite of what donald trump said in this news conference. governor pence not on the same page as his running mate but having to play interference for him. having to be the interpreter for donald trump making his statements a little bit more palletable for american politics. doing interference and playing, you know, basically cleaning up what is running mate was saying. donald trump also pushed back on the idea that he has any foreign investments in russia that he
has any feeling of friendliness towards russia that he wants the relationship -- excuse me that he has a hand -- pardon me, andrea, i'm getting ahead of myself. he basically said that he is not involved in russian relations. that russians are not getting involved with him and that is not effecting his presidential campaign. take a listen to how he put it. >> i never met putin. i don't know who putin is. he said i'm a genius. i said, thank you very much to the newspaper, and that was the end of it. i never met poout. he doesn't respect our president. and if it is russia, which it's probably not, nobody knows. if it is russia, it's really bad for a different reason. because it shows how little respect they have for our country. i don't think he respects clinton, i don't think putin has any respect whatsoever for clinton. i think he does respect me. i think he's going to respect your president, if i'm elected, and i hope he likes me.
>> reporter: donald trump pushing back on the idea that he has any investment in russia and trying to frame it as more of a matter as whether he will get along better with them because president obama is not respected by them. andrea. >> katie tur, thank you so much. and of course nancy pelosi told us here yesterday, told me on this program that it was definitely russia, that there's no question about it and she was obviously well-briefed and just now, brendan buck, the speaksman for paul ryan, the house speaker, has tweeted, russia is a global menace led by a thug, he should stay out of the election. there was a lot of confirmation that it was russia. brian fallon joins me now. let's talk about what donald trump is saying about russia. let me play a little bit of that sound for you. >> mook, i saw him on television, and they asked him about russia, and the hacking. by the way, the hacked. they probably have for 33,000
e-mails. i hope they do. russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. i think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. >> reacting to donald trump saying that maybe russia could find the 30,000 so-called missing e-mails. >> andrea, that is a galling statement from the republican nominee for president of the united states. donald trump, who is seeking to become our commander in chief is now openly inviting russia to engage in cyber attacks against the united states. this is a bridge too far. we have heard all kinds of admiring comments from donald trump about vladimir putin, it's been quite strange for some time now, just last week, the republicans changed their platform to soften language that was against russia on the issue of the ukraine. and last week he also gave an interview suggesting he would abandon our nato allies in eastern europe living under constant fear of an antagonistic
vladimir putin. this should not be a political issue. this should be a national security issue that all sides can come together and stand up to a strong man like vladimir putin and say, enough, i agree with brandon buck from speaker ryan's office, we need to stand up to russia. it is amazing to me that donald trump apologizes for vladimir putin's russia at every turn and it's now recklessly inviting him to engage in scriber attacks against our own home country. >> i want to ask you about try mcauliffe, he supports the president on the tpp, on the trade deals, he is pushing as are the other governors, as is the trade, trade and trade administra administrator and the administration's policy is a lame duck session, pushed forward the trade deal. hillary clinton, is she winking and nodding -- >> no, let me be completely clear about this -- >> terry mcauliffe is wrong? >> completely wrong.
and while the clintons have a long relationship with the mcauliffe and he's a tremendous governor, he does not know what he's talking about on this particular issue. his personal position is in favor of tpp. rerespect his position. he does not speak for secretary clinton, and she is against tpp now, she's against tpp after the election. we have a huge lengthy agenda when it comes to creating jobs in this country and it includes rebuilding our infrastructure, increasing the minimum wage, more profit sharing for workers, you know what's not on that agenda, passing this tpp or renegotiating to get a different version. and in the recent conversations between secretary clinton and senator kaine, senator kaine also agreed with secretary clinton's position that this deal does not meet her tests. she is opposed to it now, she would be opposed to it in a lame duck or if she's president after january. >> she wasn't always opposed to it, she was in favor of it given whatever amendments came down the road. if you're saying that right now she is not winking and noddi and after an election, if she's
elected, she would try to resurrect it maybe under some different name. >> no. absolutely not. with all do respect to the governor, i don't know why he is saying this. he has no basis for thinking this. that she's never said anything like this to him. and she wouldn't because her position is clear. against tpp now, against it in the lame duck, against it after january. the governor should stop talking about this, he's incorrect. >> does she need to reach out to bernie sanders or maybe they've had a conversation to say, don't listen to terry mcauliffe. >> she's been quite clear and this has been her position for a long time now ever since the final language of the dpp language came out. there was many conversations in the primary. she made her position quite clear. now that we're in the general election, her position has not changed. and to be honest, there is so much of what we want to do in the opening days of a clinton administration on jobs. the largest investment in jobs since world war ii. absolutely no interest in renegotiating or reopening this tpp matter if it's still hanging out there when she's president.
>> we heard from bill clinton in his very personal tribute to his wife last night. and we heard that she is the agent of change. she's a change agent. over and over again. that tells us that that's what you're worried about. you think that this is an outsider's year, donald trump is the outsider, and people are viewing her as the establishment. >> well, donald trump goes around and he is not putting any plans forward for how he would make a difference in people's lives. and the convention last week you heard a lot of attacks on hillary clinton, you didn't hear any positive vision for what donald trump would do. hillary clinton is telling the voters exactly what she would do and what bill clinton explained last night, she has a record of getting results on those things she's talking about getting done. and i thought it was quite al force on his port part. he wove in personal details with their lives along the fights she's waged consistently throughout her career and it was self-afacing, parts of the speech he talked his own record as governor of arkansas and credited his biggest accomplishments to her when you talk about the program in
arkansas that helped create early education opportunities for young children in arkansas. so, we were so impressed with that speech that the president gave. and i think it perfectly summed up the message of last night which was these are the fights she's been waging her whole career. she's always gotten her results and that's how people will trust results as president. >> thank you very much. thanks for putting up with all the noise around us today as lenny kratz -- >> it's worth it to be on the floor here. >> it's great. thank you. appreciate it. and coming up, new details on possible russian involvement in the dnc e-mail hack. the top democratic, democrat on the house intelligence committee joins me right here on "andrea mitchell reports" live from philadelphia on the convention floor. only on msnbc. 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.

i think the fbi is still investigating what happened. i know that experts have attributed this to the russians. what the motives were in terms of the leaks, all that, i can't say directly. what i do know is that donald trump has repeatedly expressed a mir ration for vladimir putin. >> president obama with savannah guthrie on the "today" show this morning on the suspected russian ties to the dnc e-mail hacking. the kremlin is now responding, dismissing all allegations that russia is meddling in the u.s. election. joining me now is adam schiff, the top democrat on the house committee. now donald trump is saying that the russians should go in and try to find the 30,000 missing e-mails, so-called missing e-mail us or the e-mails that hillary clinton eliminated from
her account. what's your response to that? >> it's just staggering. i can't believe that one of the nominees for a major political party is essentially inviting a foreign power and an adversary no less to hack into computers and i don't know where clintons or is he suggesting they hack into the fbis computers. it is just incredible and to think that this person could be the leader of the free world. it's just breath taking. >> well at this stage, what do we know about the hacking? all signs pointing to russia, according to the house speaker's office, according to to the former speaker, nancy pelosi, on this program yesterday. sop there's a lot of finger pointing. is there hard evidence? >> well, i'm limited in what i can speak to, but i think there was a credible analysis -- >> the dnc hired the firm, computer forensic firm. >> yes, and you know look,
russia has certainly the means to do it, one of the most capable cyber actors in the world. they have a history of interference in the election of others in europe and elsewhere. and they clearly have a motive here. there's no question who the russians want to be the president of the united states. the only question is whether we're going to allow a potentially various actions to influence our election. that would be extraordinary, you can't imagine really a better candidate for the kremlin than someone that diminishes nato, praises putin, and then further invites them to hack. it's astounding. >> what motive do you think russia might have for meddling in the american election? >> well, look, secretary clinton they have to be concerned with a woman who's a demon -- has demonstrated an ability po cultivate international sanctions she did with iran, she can do and has done with russia in terms of the very powerful sanctions on their invasion of ukraine. the russians want to see those go away and with trump, they
have a good chance of seeing those go away. so i think they fear clinton. and they would welcome someone like donald trump. >> hillary clinton is basically tied or a couple points behind in some polls. with all of her experience with her resume and all the money that's been spent on her campaign, he's basically spent no money, he's been campaigning by twitter. why is this race so close? >> well, it's close right now because donald trump got a bounce from his convention as you would expect. i think the history of the last several conventions is after both are over, you go back to where you were before the conventions. so i would manage coming out of this, i hope that we will see secretary clinton with a lead once again. but, i think the country is, you know, entertaining at least the idea of donald trump that the more he speaks i think the more the country sees just how reckless it would be to entrust america to someone who really
belongs back in reality tv and not as a leader of the free world. >> thanks so much. adam schiff. >> thank you. >> thank you very much, congressman. and coming up, he's with her. president obama preparing to take the stage tonight. make the case for hillary clinton. more of his exclusive interview with savannah guthrie on "today," next here on "andrea mitchell reports" live from the democratic convention in philadelphia. defiance is in our bones. our citracal bones. easily absorbed calcium plus vitamin d. defy bone aging with citracal maximum. our highest level of calcium plus d. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing.

possibility that it could happen. "today" show host savannah guthrie sat down with the president for a wide ranging interview ahead of his big speech here tonight. here's part of that exclusive interview. >> is it possible that donald trump wins the presidency? >> anything is possible. the nature of democracy that until those votes are cast and the american people, you know, have their say, we don't know. >> are you worried? >> you know, as somebody who has now been in elected office at various levels for about 20 years, i've seen all kinds of crazy stuff happen. and i think anybody who goes into campaigns not running scared kend up losing. so my advice to democrats, i don't have to give this advice to hillary clinton because she already knows it is you stay
worried until all those votes are cast and counted because, you know, one of the dangers in an election like this is that people don't take the challenge seriously. they stay home. and we end up getting the unexpected. >> let's talk about hillary clinton. can you still, as we sit here today, say she didn't jeopardize national security information? >> you know, i don't want to, i don't want to characterize any further what the fbi director said. i think he was comprehensive, unusually so, about how they arrived at the decision. >> i know you don't want to give away your speech before you give it, what do you hope your headline is the next morning? >> i hope my headline is that the president of the united states is profoundly optimistic about america's future.
and is 100% convinced that hillary clinton can be a great president. >> that's the message that the president and also the vice president are going to be delivering when they appear here today. tonight, in prime time. and breaking news today, a federal judge in washington letting john hinckley jr. go free. the man who tried to kill president ronald reagan outside of the washington hilton will live with his mother for at least the next year. hinckley was committed to a mental institution in washington after being found not guilty by reason of insanity. the judge said when hinckley is continued hospitalization is no longer clinically warranted or beneficial. and could later apply for government benefits once he becomes the resident of virginia. coming up, new york state of mine rather, tonight's big night of speakers, including the past to mayors from hillary's

that is more. go get some mud... all that "more" has to be why they're the second-largest auto insurer. everybody likes more. mhm, i think so. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. i asked her to marry me, and she said i can't do that. the second time i asked, i tried a different tactic, i said, i really want you to marry me, but you shouldn't do it. she smiled and looked at me like what is this boy up to? she said that is not a very good sales pitch. one day, i was driving her to the airport to fly back to chicago, when we past this little brick house that had a for sale sign on it. and she said, boy, that's a pretty house. i said you're in a house you
like. while you were gone, i bought it, you have to marry me now. the third time was the charm. [ applause ] >> bill clinton sharing some personal stories about his wife portraying a softer, gentle side of the best known woman in american politics. tonight president obama and the vice president are the big headliners promoting the party's nominee. i think maybe bill clinton would appreciate lenny kravitz drowning us out here today. joining me now, chris alyssa, founder of the washington post fix blog, new york times political reporter jeremy geter serks. chris, first to you, how, how smart is this strategy? your take on last night's big clinton speech. did it work for his wife? >> well, andrea, i thought that bill clinton -- so it's hard to say i'm going to say something new about hillary clinton. i mean, there is a lot that
people either know or believe they know. i actually thought low key speech somewhat might help bill clinton. i thought an effective one in that he gave us a perspective on her that no one else could. which is, i thought the little details matter. the brick house and he goes back and buys it. i like the detail of how when they dropped chelsea off, hillary was on her hands and knees lining the drawers in her dorm room. i remember my parents doing that. i think a lot of people do that. and that's the thing. you have to get her out of being hillary clinton and into just being hillary clinton. he is a very effective communicator at that because he has perspective no one else does. not barack obama, not joe biden, not tim kaine, no one else other than chelsea clinton could tell stories like that. i think an effective frame for what i think tonight will be the argument for what i think many people already believe which is, experience, credibility, resume, i think you're going to hear a
lot of that tonight from president obama, joe biden, from tim kaine. >> and joe biden of course jeremy peters, as a number of challenges one of which is that donald trump is all over this whole terry mcauliffe thing which brian tried to clean up saying that terry mcauliffe is just dead wrong about any suggestion that he would compromise on trade if she were elected. contrary to her promises to bernie sanders. and at the same time, donald trump throwing a lot of red meat out there about russia. let me play a little bit of joe biden on "morning joe" today. >> every place i go, reaching across the table or trying to solve a problem with chi and the president of the china and on down in new zealand, with the prime minister, you know, tell me, trump's not going -- i mean,
that can't happen, can it? and i'm not joking. >> what is joe biden do tonight? how do they parade out a group of speakers when you've got donald trump taking shots from the sidelines? >> yeah, i think that's a good point, andrea. joe biden certainly has a tough act to follow in former president clinton, that's for sure. but i do think that one of the things that this convention has done exceedingly well is production, right? this is a highly, sleekly produced show from start to finish, everything from the speakers all being on the right beams to the qualify of the videos that they've produced every, in between every segment to the speakers. i mean if you contrast the star wattage at this convention with donald trump's convention, which had, you know, a female professional golfer, a soap star, and an avocado farm ore just a name a few, i have the sitting first lady, a former
president, sitting vice president, sitting president, this is really they have pulled off something i think that even donald trump could concede is pretty impressive. >> lenny kravitz. and chris alyssa, what a team. thank you all very much. >> first time i've headlined with lenny kravitz. and coming up, more from inside the wells fargo centers are in play hours before president obama takes the stage. here at the democratic national convention. the mayor of new york, bill de blasio along with the first lady of new york city, joining us right here on "andrea mitchell reports" live from philadelphia. before taking his team to state for the first time... gilman: go get it, marcus. go get it. ...coach gilman used his cash rewards credit card from bank of america to earn 1% cash back everywhere, every time. at places like the batting cages. ♪ [ crowd cheers ] 2% back at grocery stores and now at wholesale clubs.
and 3% back on gas. which helped him give his players something extra. the cash rewards credit card from bank of america. more cash back for the things you buy most. the cash rewards credit card from bank of america. you know what they used to do with guys like that when they were in a place like this? they'd be carried out on a stretcher, folks. and you can tell them to go f--- themselves! i could
stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody and i wouldn't lose any voters, okay? it's like incredible. when mexico sends its people, they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists. you know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever... you gotta see this guy - ahh, i don't know what i said, ahh.
"i don't remember." he's going like, "i don't remember!" our children and grandchildren will look back at this time... ...at the choices we are about to make. the goals we will strive for. the principles we will live by. and we need to make sure that they can be proud of us. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. and i'm michael howard. we left on our honeymoon in january 2012. it actually evolved into
a business. from our blog to video editing... our technology has to hang tough with us. when you're going to a place without electricity, you need a long battery life. the touch, combined with the screen resolution... a mac doesn't have that. we wanted to help more peopl get out there and see the world. once you take that leap, that's where the magic happens.
sorry ma'am. no burning here. ugh. heartburn. try new alka-seltzer heartburn relief gummies. they don't taste chalky and work fast. mmmm. incredible. can i try? she doesn't have heartburn. new alka seltzer heartburn relief gummies. enjoy the relief. she knows that when a young black life is cut short, it's not just a loss.
it's a personal loss. it's a national loss. >> hillary clinton isn't afraid to say that black lives matter. she isn't afraid to sit at a table with grieving mothers and bear the full force of our anguish. >> the mothers of the movement sharing they emotional stories about their children's deaths in police confrontations. and today in baltimore, prosecutors have dropped all charges against the remaining officers in the freddie gray case. the 25-year-old african american man who died in police custody last year always a big issue for mayors like bill de blasio who speaks today at the convention and joins me now along with his wife. welcome to both of you. i want to talk to you about this big issue first of the way the minority communities interact with the police because we have all charges dropped. you had an aggressive prosecutor in baltimore, you don't know the
details, neither do i. what signal does that send to the black community to follow up on freddie gray's death? >> i think the discussion has to be not about an individual case or an individual prosecution or an illegal technicality, it's about what do we have to do to change the relationship between police and community in america? while i can say we're doing in new york is we're bringing into this city, neighborhood policing, real neighborhood policing, cops walking the beat again and getting to know community members and the communit members getting to know the police as people. and things like, deesk lace training so we don't have these instances, these kind of instances and one thing that's crucially important, implicit bias training. helping our police like every human being, they have biases that we can overcome if we help people think about it. this is the way forward. so i think that the discussion in this country has to be less about what happened in each individual case, let's put those
tragedies as much as we humanly can behind us, let's stop the future tragedies, let's create something different. >> as the parents of two black children, young adults now, what concerns you -- you've had the conversation with your son, your daughter over the years. >> absolutely. but i think that, you know, our children are no different from the children across the country and as parents, we are all concerned for our children. i was so delighted to see the conversation that hillary had with mothers of the movement, the way she leaned into their pain, members of our family, our human family, and talked with them to find a way to get past that mourning. get, you know, not that one can get past it immediately, but take action with the grief. and do something to help all
parents who fear for their children across the nation. i think that's so powerful and i have such tremendous admiration for her. i think that's something that we all need to learn how to do. how to reach in when we see someone suffering and help solve the problem. >> yeah, mr. mayor, what is your message going to be to the convention when you speak tonight? >> come again? >> what's your message about hillary clinton? >> drawing a contrast from a new yorker's perspective. i've gotten plenty of time to see them both in action. and i think the dialogue has to be about what is their life about? what is their life tell them? donald trump, born rich, got richer, gamed the system, talks about it, brags about it, if that doesn't respect this country, he is a charter member of the billionaire class. he's not someone who can make the blame. lifetime in public service, a lifetime of looking out for
people who didn't have a lot of money and power. and someone who has the strength to take on very powerful special interest. she showed that particularly during that health care fight. you remember it vividly, i do too, the health care reform 93-94, huge amount of money and power. >> and i know the shattering of the glass ceiling. your feeling when you realize that a woman has been nominated. >> i can't tell you how important it is that a woman in the top job of america. we need women another every leadership table. having hillary is going to do so much for our country, so much for our girls, and for every one, for our sons too for everyone to show that as more than half the population, we need, we should be included.
>> it's such a treat to see you again, mr. mayor, we'll be watching tonight. thank you both so much. and lenny kravitz, as i said. >> thank you for joining us. >> and as we've been saying, hillary clinton made history tuesday night becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party. one of the delegates who voted for hillary clinton during the roll call, 102-year-old jerry emmet. she was born before women had won the right to vote. >> 51 votes for the next president of the united states of america! [ applause ] hillary rodham clinton. >> the democrats abroadcast their vote led by bernie sanders brother, larry. >> to names of our parents, eli and dorothy sanders, they did

delegation this morning at their breakfast here in philadelphia. it is really emotional as we can see with sanders, it's been quite a ride. and for more, i'm joined by alex who has been covering the democratic candidates since day one. you were there at the breakfast today. we saw bernie being emotional on the floor, his brother, you know, throwing those votes up in honor of their parents who of course didn't live to see this day. i mean, when you think of all that his supporters have been through and he's been trying to hard, alex, to reel them back in and they're not all following. >> an extremely emotional day for bernie sanders. and all of his supporters. and unusual, this is a guy who is not known for showing much emotion on the stump and extremely policy-heavy guy. his stump speeches go on for 45 minutes without much personality, but you know, i think it was a cathartic day, it was something that the sanders movement needed to have and to see him up there. there are bernie busters who walked out, those people probably not coming back in even
though they were allowed after their protest, but for the rest of the party, a lot of delegates, after they had that moment, they are ready to come back in. >> it's the folks from outside who are not delegates who are still protesting, alex, thanks so much. it's been a long ride. and coming up, more coming up from the convention floor. right here in philadelphia. stay with us. going to the skate park today? maybe... you can make it gr-r-reat!

trump who's trying to hijack day three of the dnc, but creating a mess for republicans in the process. just a short time ago, trump came out on fire at a news conference. he hit hillary clinton over the perception she made flip again on a trade deal, controversial with her own base. trying to commandeer the democrats preferred storyline of party unity. in fact, moments ago, clinton's team pushed back hard against the ally who opened up this can of worms. we're going to get to that in just a moment because trump may have opened up a wider attack line on himself as he defended himself against insinuations, advanced by many democrats, but also a significant number of republicans that he is vladimir putin's choice for the white house. under scrutiny, trump's business dealings along with the controversy surrounding those leaked dnc e-mails they paint a picture suggesting russia is meddling in the presidential race. >> i never met putin, i have nothing to do with putin, never
