8:01 am
i'm told there is one inperson nation you did to meet the person. >> yes, that would be prince. >> dearly beloved. >> what did he say about the impersonation? >> he said it's cool. >> they are not your typical scientists, surfers catching waves and catching important environmental data on their to shore. >> this is collecting data, huh? >> yes, we're measuring temperature, gps location and the measure of the waves. >> this is like a human buoy. >> exactly. and humble design, the detroit non-profit that helps families leaving homeless shelters make themselves at home. >> it's a lot of love. it's a lot of kindness and dignity and respect. it's offered to families who haven't had a lot of kindness
8:02 am
and we've got another great group assembled around the table. first, headlines, we begin with the race to the white house. donald trump campaigning in iowa on saturday spoke about his immigration plan that's come under more scrutiny this week. on saturday he didn't say he would deport all undoukmented immigrants but said he wants to get of the criminals among them. >> the first thing i'm going to do, the first piece of paper that i'm g going to get rid of these people. before the wall, before anything. >> trump is expected to make a big speech on immigration later this week. meanwhile, hillary clinton received the first classified briefing on saturday in new york. she's in the hamptons this weekend attending various fundraisers. the ntsb is investigating a terrifying flight for passengers on a southwest flight headed to orlando. something happened to one of the

the pictures showing the extent of the damage. the pilot was able to land the plane safety. it's been taken out of service while they figure out what went wrong. the man who police say killed two nuns in their mississippi home reportedly confessed to the crime. a sheriff in durant, mississippi said 46-year-old rodney earl sanders confessed during an interrogation but gave no reason. they were killed on sunday inside their mourners are gathering today. a tropical system to the south gets closer to land. the system is in the atlantic but expected to move into the gulf of mexico in the next few days where it could be a tropical storm and move back toward florida or further out into gulf. colin kaepernick taking heat for actions before an exhibition game over the weekend. kaepernick refused to stand for the national anthem before a game friday night.
8:04 am
it to protest the treatment of african americans and people of color. the nfl said players are encouraged but not required to stand for the anthem. much more on that in a minute. hope solo has taken an indefinite leave from her team less than a week after she was suspended for making dispaging remarks about the swedish team after the u.s. lost to them calling them cowards. and an ire one of our best looks yet at jupiter. nasa tweeted the picture showing how close it was to the juno. this is the closest it has ever been and will get to the planet. let's step to the table to join another strong crew ready to wade through the week.
8:05 am
maria co-founded the group with rosario dawson but we chose maria today. good to have you. amy williams an advisor to former republican leader bill frisk and has a weird obsession with chris evans, the guy that plays captain america in the movies. >> who doesn't? >> we'll take that up kasie hunt dropped off the road to be with us this morning. she doesn't know where she'll be tomorrow. >> i don't know where i'm at now. >> you're not in the hamptons with hillary clinton. we have so much to talk about. i would love to talk about dr. harold bornstein, he said he wrote the report in five minutes
8:06 am
to take back. he looks like a drummer for motley crew. let's start with immigration. donald trump made this is a signature issue. it's probably the biggest reason he rose to prominence, the wall, deportation forces, the jobs are coming back and the rest. this week it looks like waivering to supporters when he talked about softening his stance. let's take a look. >> there certainly can be a softening because we're not looking to hurt people. >> my stance is it's going to remain very strong. there will be no amnesty. there is no legalization. we're going to build a wall. >> maria, we can sort out what his policy is there because it's not clear at this moment but what do latino voters he's trying to court one way or another here when they listen to donald trump go back and forth on immigration this week? >> his first thing out of the gate calling the majority of mexim
8:07 am
when he's trying to court, it's less the latino voter but doesn't want to vote for someone with extreme views with immigration and the way he talks not just about latinos but muslims and women. he's starting to soften the stance but more because he has kelly kel kelly ann conway to ensure he brings in a different voter. >> amy, not only in defense of that supported him through the primary said wait a minute, you're not going to deport anybody. they suddenly got shaky under donald trump and he had to cop back around and say it's not softening, in many ways it's a hardening. >> right, very confusing. >> typical. >> whether you call it waivering or trying to pivot during the general campaign and trying to
8:08 am
the question is, will core supporters go along and there is evidence they will. ann coulter was upset by the softening but is now defending him. i think what is going on is his supporters say hey look, he said tough, strong things. he's with us instintly. we'll stick with him through november. >> you have never trump conservatives saying so. you get the toughest question of this top pick, kacey. what is donald trump's position on reform? >> go. >> see. >> no, look, honestly i couldn't tell you. the last ittertiaziton doesn't sound different. i think we're still waiting for this speech that donald trump is
8:09 am
kind of as i've been watching this unfold, it's clear to me that someone has convinced donald trump that he needs to do this if he wants to win, and it's clear paul manafort and his previous campaign team couldn't get through to him that way and i think one of the differences between now and what we saw in the primary is that donald trump's instincts were really good. he had a really good feel for the conservative base and how to talk to them and now he's trying to adjust his instincts don't seem to be that attuned tohe i think that shows you that there is outside influence and he's trying to sort through that. >> katrina pearson said when asked his position on immigration, he said his policy is not changed. his words have. i think that pretty much sums it up. >> absolutely. we jump from immigration to race which is another huge top pick between hillary clinton and donald trump. hillary clinton making a big speech linking donald trump to
8:10 am
let's listen. >> from the start, donald trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. he is taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the republican party. >> she is a bigot because you look at what is happening to the inr americans where she talks all the time. >> that's donald trump following up on hillary clinton calling her a bigot and says she takes african american folks for granted and the '94 crime bill. i'm going to break news. donald trump is not going to win the african american vote so what is the strategy? is he doing? >> i think he's like to win. he's going to win 95%. >> next time. >> i think this mud slinging, both of them are digging at the
8:11 am
donald trump calling hillary clinton a bigot and hillary clinton seeming to imply voters for donald trump are themselves bigot which i think goes further and ink tell y can tell you, we reporters what they think and a vast majority, 73% believe politicians only raise the issues for partisan advantage. a lot are saying we can do trying to bring up is the alt-right, the group of extremists that infiltrated the trump campaign in ways that we've never seen before and i mean you have steve ban none who the is alt-right newspaper. something we've never. >> we discussed how donald trump is trying to make the pivot and the message and soften the
8:12 am
say that. he's trying to weak to supporters saying i'm with you. >> i think one of the most interesting things about hillary clinton's speech is she tried to separate the republican party and conservatives from donald trump and the alt-right. i never thought i would hear hillary clinton say such nice things about republicans. she and bill clinton have been head-to-head with republicans many times over the course of their careers and instead, the essentially give space to people who have been lifelong republicans. maybe they lived in the shush bu -- suburbs. she's trying to say it is okay for you to vote for me this time because voting for donald trump is not the same as voting republican. >> let's face it -- >> she's not doing this for the good of the republican party. she's trying to do it to win -- >> yeah. >> also, also, to distract from
8:13 am
clinton. >> that's not distraction because you're right. the trump campaign has tons of stuff they could have gone after but instead, doubled down on his internal issues. >> absolutely. on the top pick of race, let's go to colin kaepernick. he's a huge quarterback for the san francisco 49ers. signed a contract 6 years, $149 million a year or so ago and friday night before an exhibition game refused to stand for the national anthem. he explained this way. i'm not going to arcountry that oppresses black people and people of color. it would be selfish to look the other way. there are bodies in the street and people on paid leave and getting away with murder. i'm not looking for approval. i have to stand up for people that are oppressed. if they take football away, my endorsements away, i know i stood up for what is right. fascinating story on so many levels.
8:14 am
his birth mother is white. he comes at this question from an interesting place. >> he does from different angles and when i first saw the headline, i wanted to dismiss it as a spoiled athlete that makes millions and millions of dollars, what is he talking about being oppressed but the great thing about our democracy, we engage people from all walks of life from this civic religion and mutual social contract which i think is where he goes wrong. the american flag is not just expression or national anthem. it's an expression of our founding principles, ideas that lead us to the very solutions. i would say not turn our back but embrace them. >> a lot of people read the story and had a reaction we had, are you kidding me? a country that gave you the opportunity to be a star, in fl quarterback and got you this money, everything you have in your life and you feel oppressed? >> i think it's more he's giving
8:15 am
i don't think that -- and i agree. this is the symbol of the anthem and the american flag what would want to be as a country. however, with the work i do on the ground, i meet so many people that don't see themselves necessarily reflected in the policies and government. i can understand where this d di talking about. we're living a moment and they are painful because we're talking about what is happening inside our communities and around our kitchen tables for the first time. >> like from lebron james, carmelo anthony and michael jordan that never stepped forward is doing it. stay with me for highs and lows of the week including the little league coach that went to the mound for a few words with his pitcher.
8:16 am
