8:02 am
hallie jackson has more on that and more on the trump transition team. >> as you know, one of the most important positions for president-elect trump to name is his chief of staff. a source close to president-elect tells me reince priebus is the front-runner with today trump's transsession team in overdrive. today more transition talk after multiple inside what's being called white house north. michael moore lifestreaming his stand against trump before security stopped him on the fourth floor. >> he does not have the vote of the people. >> other visitors far friendliers like nick farrage.
8:03 am
partly to twitter, facebook and instagram accounts, telling "60 minutes" he won't give it up. >> if i use it at all, i'm going to be very restrained. i find it tremendous. it's a modern form of communication. there should be nothing you should be ashamed of. it's where it's at. >> reporter: the chief of staff pick expected any day with reince priebus at the top of the short list. a vested interest, and there are several people being considered. >> also in the runs campaign sources point to chris christie and corey lieu wand douse can i. for secretary of state, contenders like newt gingrich or diplomat john bolton. other picks consider to include jeff sessions and rudy giuliani, trump building his cabinet and mending some fences or trying
8:04 am
fraud. >> reporter: the president-elect calling mitt romney as the candidate he -- hillary clinton speaking with donors saturday, telling them she's heartbroken, blaming fbi director james comey's revived inquiry into the private e-mail server for stopping the momentum in the final stretch. the defeat -- but instead o for poignancy, with kate mckinnon looking more somber than we're used to seeing her. ? hallelujah ? ? hallelujah ? ? hallelujah ? ? hallelujah ? >> i'm not giving up, and
8:05 am
from new york, it's saturday night. >> that song, of course, also a tribute to leonard skoal hen who died this week, but definitely a much more somber than we're used to seeing. we'll see what the show has for us next week. >> hallie jackson, thanks so much. j.d. vance a elegy, and especially essentially reading after tuesday's ease electric. he also served in iraq in the united states marine corps. great to have you with us this morning. thanks for having me. >> this was a primal scream from the people you grew up around, your friends and family. what were the voters screaming? what did they want to be heard? >> i think there's some recognition and some desire to
8:06 am
solutions have not addressed the real concerns of these voters for 20 or 30 years. this isn't just a message they sent to democratic elites last november, but also they sent to republican elites in the republican primary. >> what did they see in this man who, let's be honest, a sort of unlikely working man's hero, a guy who lives in a gilded different. what they've heard from both the left and the right is the same basic answer to a complicated set of problems. he obviously sounds unconventional, obviously occasionally offensive, but he's been saying we've been trying things for the baas 20, 30 years, and we have to do something different. >> there wasn't a ton of policy in what donald trump was putting
8:07 am
and the people you know and grew up around, but cultural condesenses is a feeling i picked up on, about the tv shows they waffle. was this also a rejection shun of that? >> i think it's definitely a rejection of that. folks feel condesevened towards by the media, by the political elites. there's also a sense that the folks who really control the conversation, stupid or racist, and there is a real, real desire to push back and say, no, that's not what we're all about, and trump represents a primal roar against that very tired conversation. >> the conversation does include questions of race. let's talking about building the wall. the first comments when he desended the escalator. is there an element of racism in
8:08 am
think there's a small element, but i don't think that's what's drives most voters, a lot of folks have said they're not necessarily racist, but if you you this about the opioid crisis, the jobs crisis, the number of intersecting problems that are going on in these communities, it's not so much that they're countenancing racism as they're saying we don't like that racist part of trump, but at least he's >> finally, j.d., what can donald trump do to bring this country together? we feel moor divided than in perhaps a long, long time. what's the first act? what should he do to bring the country back together? >> he's got to continue toning down the rhetoric and recognizing the way he's talked in the past has made a significant part of the country
8:09 am
hopefully i think he'll continue to lead the country in a gracious tone, but also it has to be formed by policy and some of the things he does. if he comes in and tries to deport it million people, it won't help the country to heal. if he tails a conciliatory tone, i think some of the divisions will start to get better. >> j.d. vance, i think you'll be -- everything ought to read it, especially right now. our country. >> thanks, willie. i'm joined by joy reid, host of "a.m. joy." you can see it later this morning on msnbc. the coalition of voters who came out and supported and put donald trump in the white house. on the other side of it hillary clinton did not get the surge in female votes, that i
8:10 am
>> i think what we are seeing is that is true but not 100% true. she's on track to get more votes than anyone who han run for president except for barack obama as the vote totals are coming in. she's going to win by something like it million votes, and she got a huge turnout. what the polls missed and what the pre-election analysis went, unexpected turnout among while working class, but also non-working class voters. i i think there was a wide divergence between white voters with a college degree and white voters without a clonal degree would actually vote. as it turns out, white voters across the board turned out? much higher numbers for
8:11 am
and that had novels seener earlier in the votes. >> you heard hillary clinton saying it was james comey putting out the letter that cost her the election. how much do you put on hillary clinton and herself and the campaign? >> i think the campaign failed for recognize when you have an increased turnout among democratic voters and people who -- you look for obama societiers, but in states like ohio, wisconsin, described by michael moore, those voters did turn out, they just voted for donald trump. i think you'll find a lot of voters who were obama voters, therefore turned out by the clinton machine, but when they got in the boost, they didn't vote for her, including white women. they mistook overall obama turnout as votes for her. i i think number two, when you shake it ute maybe her campaign
8:12 am
overcome the constant barrage of negativity around her e-mails. that negative stuck to her. when the fbi came out with the letter, it made it stick even more. 11 days out, this is unprecedented, for the fbi for intervene really was unprecedented, to do it again three days out, no doubt when you go back and look at the numbers in pennsylvania, in wisconsin, states democrats there was some equality from that outcome. the lesson for democrats seems to be so far we need to get more progressive. bernie sanders would have won. keith ellison, eliz bewarrening is that the lesson? >> there's some problems with that. we never saw bernie sanders with opposition research directed
8:13 am
happened. the idea what -- what you're seeing is a circular firing squad between the establishment democrats and the sort of bernie sanders wind of the party. the keith ellison fight is interests, a proxy fight whether the party will get younger, whether it will recognize the more energetic part of the party. keith ellison as a young legislator, as a african-american, he really feels like an ideal the candidate. the question is do you want a parttime dnc chair, that is a legislate are or full-time dnc chair that can focus on pulling the party together. we will see. >> a lot of change coming. you can see much more of joy reid at 10:00 eastern on msnbc. let's turn to some other headlines.
8:14 am

8:20 am
taken by none other president clinton. >> he framed it quite well. >> that's such a great contrast. the first low to the suspicion that maybe your own wife isn't voting for you to be president. while casting his vote, donald trump was caught taking a little peek over after melania's ballot to make sure she passing. trust but verify, as ronald reagan used to say. you just can't ever -- >> i was the nerd who set up my folder so people couldn't peek over. >> that means you were the smart one. the next high with a warning. if you or anyone has a history of the heart problems, you shouldn't watch this.
