7:14 am
bind up the nation's wounds everybody after a bruising campaign last year. what we heard yesterday is more in the historical tradition of a convention speech or campaign speech. you usually have an effort by a president to say to the opposition. i know you didn't vote for me, but rest easy. there are ways we can do things together. not much of that yesterday. >> hugh, what about political perspective? >> i was on set yesterday with michael and lester and chuck. it was a shocking speech, tom brokaw. it has grown on me overnight. it was effective and blunt and honest. as i re-read it this morning, it is serving notice on elites. especially bureaucratic elites that donald trump is concerned with people left behind. i was also reflecting tonight we will see a movie called "moonlight honored." a grim movie. that is about the real america that washington elites don't talk about.
7:15 am
while i like president trump's graciousness to president clinton and secretary clinton at the lunch, this is growing on me. the honesty of it is bracing. we waited for that for a long time. >> hugh, you acknowledge the speech was dark. >> it was grim. i used that on set with michael yesterday. a lot of the country is in a grim place. i come back to that like the movie "moonlight." it is grim in many places. president trump was speaking to the forgotten man. using the fdr phrase. on one respect, it did not have the bind up of wounds of the lincoln second inaugural, but a lot of directness of what america has to do. i love the first executive order, craig. that was a direct assault on the fact that the hobby lobby decision came down two years ago and hhs is yet to provide the relief. >> it is still clear what those executive orders will do. i want to play the sound here at
7:16 am
the capitol after the inaugural address. take a listen. >> i'll tell you, there is something that i wanted to say. i was very honored. very, very honored when i heard that president bill clinton and secretary hillary clinton were coming today. i think it is appropriate to say. i would like you to stand up. >> michael, what do you make of that moment at the lunch, but not at the address? >> i think it was lovely, but the problem is that moment was seen by few people and heard by them compared to the number of people who heard his inaugural address. i think the thing here is if donald trump were coming in the inaugural with let's say a 72% an proefpproval rating like pre obama, perhaps he has margin for error. during the transition, he went for the high 40s in the popular vote on election day, to if the
7:17 am
polls are right, approval of 8 to 10 points lower. that is not the right direction. if his intention is to confront congress and people who may not agree with his program and say you better fear me because i'm more popular than you are, that is not the way to do it. >> michael and hugh, thank you. what can we expect from the first 100 days of the trump administration? steve kornacki is here with us. >> let's take a look at the 100 day sprint. the noise trump made about and what can he do? we have been talking bengal abo. he issued the executive order, craig. it is unclear what it means. there is some talk here that maybe this is a shot at the individual mandate and requirement that people have to buy health care policies. if that gets gutted, supporters of the law say that law itself
7:18 am
is as good as gone. the administration clhips away and what would they replace it with? that has to get through congress. that is a big process. that is ahead. immigration. do daca. the children of undocumented immigrants. they are here. the obama administration has offered protections to them. it is expected the trump administration will rescind those. and the 10 million undocumented in the country. how many will be targeted for deportation? that is a question as well. building the wall. donald trump said he will get mexico to pay for it. we will see if he can. and trade. tpp. he campaigned against it. that is probably as good as gone. nafta. he said he would renegotiate. tariffs for china. see what he proposes. and russia. you mentioned putin. will there be a visit with
7:19 am
vladimir putin? and how about the last minute sanctions that president obama placed on russia? will trump keep those or get rid of those? >> steve, it will be a busy 100 days. thank you for that. let's get to the other top stories right now. >> breaking overnight. search and rescue teams heading to the site of a tornado touchdown in the hattisburg, mississippi area. people may be trapped in their homes. power lines are down. i-59 is blocked by debris. officials are asking the public to avoid traveling. we will have more coming up in a moment. in california, heavy rain causing damage. former president obama's vacation flight to palm springs was diverted friday. this flood-soaked hillside in los angeles actually gave way as you can see there. and 20 people had to be rescued from the el capitan area as the flash floods hit their cars. and more survivors taken
