get ready for the hoverbike. a whole lot more on a busy friday. "early today" starts right now. good morning. everybody, i'm betty nguyen. thanks for joining us. a wild night at west. hundreds of donald trump protesters took to the streets of costa mesa, california. among them, a police car was destroyed. at least 20 protesters were arrested. and after a prolonged period of intensity and violence things have begun to calm down. those protests came after a letter laced with white powder was addressed to donald trump's campaign offices in new york. that is being investigated. six people exposed to the substance and isolated as a precaution. jeb bush is speaking out for the first time since dropping out of the race. he talked with cnn's jamie gangel about trump's nomination and what it would mean to the republican party. >> my personal belief is donald
i've been pretty consistent about this. we will lose the senate and we will lose the presidency in a landslide and our country can't afford that. >> all of this after another dozeny of a day in the presidential race and reached a boiling point when former house speaker john boehner went off when speaking to the " "stanford daily." >> well! cruz made sure to hit boehner right back. >> john boehner had some interesting comments last night. he allowed his inner trump to come out. i will say this. if you're one who actually has stood up to washington, i think john boehner has made it crystal clear.
describe donald trump as his texting and golfing buddy. so if you want someone who is a texting and golfing buddy, if you're happy with john boehner, speaker of the house, and you want a president like john boehner, then donald trump is your man. >> cruz is fund-raising off boehner's comments. at an event yesterday, he underscored how pivotal indiana is to deciding the gop nominee. >> i am so grateful that the entire country is now looking to indiana. we are at the edge of a cliff staring downward and it is the common sense and good judgment of the hoosier state, that is the one thing that stands between us and plunging over the cliff. >> this comes as cruz launched new ad in indiana featuring his vp pick carly fiorina.
ignoring the recent cruz/kasich back by backing kasich. it says kasich is the best man for the job. also, yesterday, kasich made emotional comments on why he is staying in the race. >> i made the determination that the people of this country deserve something. and i said, what do you think, sweetie? i'm inclined to keep going. she looked at me and said, simple words, because she is not a politician, she said, "the people need a choice and if you don't give them a choice, who will?" >> republican front-runner trump continued to focus his energy on his likely democratic opponent hillary clinton. she also made a conscious pivot to the general election yesterday. her campaign released a stop trump ad detailing the things trump would do as president. while also spending a second day off the trail, continuing to fund-raise off trump's woman card comments. she even supplied her supporters with verified women cards with
we learned clinton is no longer spending ad money in the upcoming primaries. she put out a campaign schedule all but sees indiana to bernie sanders. sanders is echoing trump's card of a rigged political system. >> the problem we are having now not in my view the republicans are winning the elections, the problem is the democrats are losing elections. and i think the reason for that is the democratic party, up to now, has not been clear about which side they are on! >> in other news. a tense standoff at a television station in baltimore on thursday. employees fled after a man dressed in a costume displayed what appeared to be a bomb. pete williams has details. >> reporter: police say a man wearing a animal costume and surgical mask and sunglasses
station in baltimore demanding it air information what he says is a government conspiracy. station employees say he was wearing what appeared to be a bomb vest and said he had a bomb. the building was evacuated. >> he kept on saying, you know, i don't want to hurt anyone, i don't want to hurt you, you know, but i just really want my message to be heard. >> reporter: just before walking in, police say he set his car on fire. some pictures live streamed by a station employee on social media. he then walked out of the station where police were waiting when they told him to show his hands, he refused and police say they fired at him when he wouldn't stop. >> when he walked out on the street, he posed a threat to this community, a threat to the officers and they were forced to use their real guns to shoot the suspect. >> reporter: with the man lying on the ground, robot devices were called in to remove the vest. he was then carried into an armored vehicle and taken to a hospital for treatment of his gunshot wounds. >> that was nbc's pete williams reporting. the suspect is in serious condition at a hospital. the authorities say no explosives were found.
