presumptive republican nominee and now all of his attacks are turning towards hillary clinton. >> and joining us now to break down the race, chuck todd. and you sat down with the big t and we were going through some of the captioning. he has more votes than nixon, reagan, eisenhower. >> well, back then they didn't have that many primaries, but this is a case where the party said one thing, party leaders are saying another and this divide has not been brought together. i don't know in paul ryan -- the statements that he's made about what he wants to hear from donald trump are not things donald trump will say or do and du trump makes that clear. so the question is does ryan -- will ryan stick to his guns and really do this and not endorse him. because for been republicans, if he doesn't do t,
own part of the defeat as well. that's the risk here. now, of course ryan takes the long view, he thinks that there are those conservatives that think the stain of trump will hurt the party for years to come. so that is why i think you see this sort of angst in the republican leadership. >> you can tell he's looking for a mondikemoniker. >> there we go. so listening to hillary clinton, it looks like she's tar gegt trump more than she is bernie sanders, but sanders is still standing. so what does he hope to gain from staying in the race? >> i think so he lid tie what he's already gained. he's the progressive leader of the democratic party right now. i think before this campaign started, we all would have said elizabeth warren was the progressive leader of the party. bernie sanders has the people behind him. he has this progressive wing that he clearly speaks for, m
better than hillary clinton does as far as they're concerned. so i think that's why you stay in it. oh, by the way, hillary clinton stayed in after barack obama. so she set the precedent to keep going. look, it will be an uncomfortable rest of the month about a she probably loses every single primary in the month of may. they're just not stakes that are built for her coalition, they're built for her coalition. but guess what, hillary clinton does that to obama. obama's may was horrendous, too, and it didn't matter. >> so trump versus clinton, how do you see that going? >> they are polar opposites in so many ways, but she is cautious, prepared, risk averse. will run a very disciplined campaign. he is nothing but spontaneity and has no discipline. the question will be can he learn enough discipline to run a good enough campaign to actually target enough electoral votes and can she shake off the caution and be a little
so she has to channel a little bit of trump, he has to chaenl a little bit of her, which has the ability to grow as a candidate between now and november. >> maybe that's where bill comes in. p. >> bill and obama and does trump have anybody that can be his character witness. p she has two of them in different ways. >> all right. well, a lot to talk about. and "meet the press" every sunday right here on nbc 4. happy mother's day to your wife. >> thank you. and happy mother's day to you. >> thanks for stopping by. well, an ivy league professor was forced off of a plane after a passenger thought that he was a terrorist. the woman said that she became concerned after seeing the university of pennsylvania economics professor writing something strange. here's more. >> reporter: travelers are
airlines flight from philadelphia's international airport to syracuse was ready to take off thursday evening when it went back to the gate. what was first thought to be a passenger's illness was actually her suspicion about a university of pennsylvania professor she allegedly thought posed a threat. >> i think it's a sad commentary on how suspicious we are of one another. >> reporter: the professor is an internationally recognized economist, he was on his way to a speaking engagement in ontario and was working on math equations that were a party of his presentation. the woman, quote, thought he was a terrorist because he was writing strange things on a pad of paper. >> obviously people have a very great fear which overwhelms their ability to think. >> reporter: he was questioned and eventually cleared by authorities. it delayed the flight for two hours. >> i think she should have asked what he was doing first. >> reporter: american airlines confirmed that a passenger expressed concerns about another customer's behavior and apologized for the delay.
