8:04 am
don't think we're going to go thereafter up the thermometer, but it will still feel nice. 55 in the park at the moment. we're going to be in april tomorrow. a southerly wind flow right now, a southwest wind is going to help usher in the milder temperatures across the area. nicewet frommal beenny -- weather from albany to boston to philly. and we're in the 60s already in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. so look at our sat right and radar shows we have had plenty of sun hine this morning, but now clouds are starting to work into northwestern new jersey and into the hudson valley. they will make their way eastward, and the rains associated with the clouds should hold off to the northwest. the system is bringing rain from the great lakes down toward the deep south, but we should squeeze out one more dry day before we have to break out our umbrellas. so we'll have temperatures soaring into the 60s later this afternoon.
8:05 am
with scattered showers throughout the day, and on saturday we'll get relatively drier. there could be a passing shower in the afternoon, but the big story will be the drop in temperatures, in the 50s on saturday, 40s on sunday and 40 degree weather is going to be with us at least for the first half of next week. let's get a check of the roads this morning, and for that we're going to head over to ines row sal race. -- rosales. >> problems, still working on the van wyck northbound atlantic avenue, out this for over an hour. cross island parkway, new approximate southbound by northern boulevard with, 6:a crash. route 78, we're dealing with an accident westbound, the expressway lanes, exit 50 there's an accident. problems. take a look at the commute on staten island, the expressway's been doing good. no problems on victory boulevard bridge. 3 trains this morning, police
8:06 am
southbound no service between pennsylvania avenue and new lots avenue. rest of the trains are running on or close. greg and rosanna. >> let's do politics. new york state doing it in a big way. our primary count, it's a competitive one. donald trump said something kind of wild again, and it's got the whole world talking. >> his comments on abortion has a a lot of people upset. he originally said women should face some form of punishment for illegal abortion, but he later changed that. robert moses has been trying to piece it all together. it came during an interview on msnbc which, by the way, was very prosecutorial. say yes or no. >> sometimes you've got to do that. what happened, robert? >> he was pushing him. >> the line of questioning was pretty sharp, and then later on in the day trump sort of backtracked on that first statement. now he insists that his position on abortion has not changed.
8:07 am
reagan and said he is pro-life with exceptions. now, some of those in the pro-life camp said that trump simply went too far. >> do you believe in punishment for abortion, yes or no, as a principle? >> the answer is that there has to be some form of punishment. >> to the woman? >> yeah. there has to be some form. >> donald trump's comments on msnbc drew swift and bipartisan condemnation. bernie sanders called them shameful, hillary clinton described them as horrific and telling. >> for what donald trump said today was outrageous and dangerous. >> trump's fellow republicans criticized him too. ted cruz said in a statement, once again donald trump has demonstrated that he hasn't seriously thought through the issues and he'll say anything just to get attention. of john kasich who was in queens yesterday hit trump hard as well. >> of course women shouldn't be punished. look, i think probably donald trump will figure out a way to say that he didn't say it or he
8:08 am
i don't think that's an appropriate response, and it's a difficult enough situation. >> one of the only people who came to trump's defense was new jersey governor chris christie. >> people misspeak all the time, you know, and you can't -- but with him everybody wants to make a bigger deal over it. >> a few hours after making his remarks, trump backtracked. he said that if abortion is banned, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman. the woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb. >> all right. the next big contest to watch is the wisconsin primary. according to a marquette university law school poll that just came out yesterday, cruz points. a cruz win could potentially further embolden the anti-trump camp to work to deny him that nomination in july, and then after wisconsin we have the big contest here in new york. >> okay. thanks a lot.
8:09 am
john kasich, by the way, in queens. campaigning in queens. they don't see a lot of presidential candidates. of he was there. >> yeah. yesterday he he decided he was going to taste a little pizza. finally! he had it in his hands, but he started off with a fork and knife, and apparently somebody whispered in his ear, put down the fork and knife. this was in gino's -- >> you fold the pizza, you eat it that way. >> that's how most people eat it. >> somebody gave him a hard time. look, if you want to use a knife and forbes knock yourself out. -- fork, knock yourself out. de blasio did it. >> donald trump did it because he didn't want to eat the bread. >> yeah. i was on this no-carb kick for a while. pizza's everywhere, you can eat the cheese, still get a good pizza feeling. >> right. anyway, let's talk about trump's republican rival, senator ted cruz. he made a late night tv appearance. he went on jimmy kimmel and stuck to his positions despite
8:10 am
>> was he funny? >> i didn't see it. he also called out hillary clinton and the president for being too politically correct on radical islamic terrorism. >> let's listen to this. >> i dislike obama's policies more. >> i see. >> but donald, donald is a unique individual. [laughter] i will say i was watching the early part of the show, and if i were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw donald in the backup camera -- [laughter] i'm not confident which pedal i'd push. [laughter] [applause] >> wow, senator cruz! >> he's going to kill donald trump? >> hey, donald trump has threatened to kill somebody on fifth avenue, remember in. >> i don't know. >> hey, it got a laugh. >> jimmy kimmel pointed out that ted cruz isn't well liked in the senate, and senator cruz told him when you stand up to washington, they don't like it. >> all right. so on the democratic side, both bernie sanders and hillary
8:11 am
city today. >> yeah. they're getting ready for the big april 19th primary. hillary yesterday was in harlem at the apollo, today she's going to be in westchester, and bernie sanders is going to be at 129 mary's park in the bronx bronx. he was in wisconsin yesterday because they have that primary first, and then it's new york. anyway, carrie drew is in the bronx this morning a little early. she's early to the big campaign there. but she's feeling the bern, i guess, already. right, carrie? anybody show up yet? >> not yet. good morning to you. bernie sanders will be here tonight. he will be holding a rally behind me in the st. mary's park, and you can see there are crews kind of setting up, getting things ready, cleaning up the garbage and setting things up. also we've seen a number of cones in the area blocking a all of the parking spots in the vicinity. hillary clinton will hold a rally this afternoon at sunni purchase in westchester. clinton and sanders campaigning in new york ahead of the primary

[cheers and applause] >> democratic front-runner hillary clinton appeared in front of a packed house at the famed apollo theater in harlem wednesday, drumming up support for the april 19th new york primary. this despite the latest polls showing vermont senator bernie sanders with a four-point lead in wisconsin ahead of next tuesday's democratic primary there. sanders has won five of the last six primaries and is looking to keep his momentum going. >> if the democratic party wants a strong candidate that will defeat trump or some other republican and beat them badly, i think i am the candidate. >> well, i think it matters where we stand in delegates and, frankly, in popular vote. right now i'm gratified that i have more votes than anybody in this election, nearly nine million, and that's a million more than donald trump, and it's two and a half million more than
8:13 am
>> clinton and sanders will both be campaign anything new york today. clinton will be in westchester on the campus op of sunni purchase and sanders at st. mary's park in the brocks. and as they hit the campaign trail, both are keeping their rhetoric focused on the gop. >> they're asking americans to give 'em another chance. you know, fool me once, shame on you. fool me twice, shame on me, right? [applause] is so for the life of me, i trying to accomplish. >> i say to those cowardly governors, if you can't stand up and win in a free and open and fair election, get out of politics, get another job with.
