it is wednesday, may 25th. coming up on "early today," a donald trump rally in new mexico brought the protesters out in force. but is this just a sign of things to come for the republican front-runner? multiple massive tornadoes rip allthrough the midwest. america's one time tv dad turned defended and facing a possible ten-year pretty much sentence if convicted. muscle cars put to the test. which ones are safest? a newly crowned winner on the voice. a meltdown on a very early wednesday. "early today" starts right now. good morning, everybody. thanks for joining us today. i'm betty nguyen. violence overtook the streets of albuquerque, new mexico, last night. hundreds
threw rocks outside of a donald trump rally there. police officers responded in force. smoke canisters and using spray to disburse the protesters. several officers police say are being treated for injuries. at least one protester has been arrested. here is what some protesters told nbc's hally jackson. >> donald trump cannot come to our city after calling us rapists. lies. he is not in the spirit of people and the spirit of democracy and in the spirit of the promise. we all have certain alienable rights and he acts like they only belong to the people who support him. >> what we are protesting is the hate from donald trump and everything that he has in his policies. anywhere from banning muslims and anywhere from hitting immigrants and hitting women and calling mexicans rapists and that is what you see in mexican and what do you expect the mexican community to act like?
more. >> hi, betty. good morning. this morning, the streets have cleared out in downtown albuquerque, after real protesters last night. after that donald trump rally, the demonstrators interrupted his remarks and not uncommon to see during a trump speech but what we saw was the escalation like what we saw in chicago a couple of months ago, but police still employed pepper spray and smoke can sfers and the crowd was disruptive and smoke in the air here outside of the convention center as police walked block by block to keep protesters somewhat under control. trump, himself, talked a lot about topics about hillary clinton and talked about the new mexico governor here. many of the protesters upset about his appearance in albuquerque at all. betty? >> hally, thank you for that. a trump senior adviser responded to the riot tweeting, watching thugs and punks in albuquerque en route to california. they didn't even know what the
republican governor martinez was not at the rally saying he was too busy to attend in a statement. as trump remains just a handful of delegates away from officially taking the republican nomination. he won the washington primary last night and while clinton is poised to win pennsylvania's primary, it won't give her any delegates. washington democrats already aawarded their delegates based on their caucuses in march. trump and clinton engage in a new round of mud-slinging. trump dredged up a decade old conspiracy that the clintons were involved in the suicide of their staffer and close friend vince foster and trump took that route, clinton released this new ad going after trump for the housing crisis. ♪ >> i sort of hope that happens, because then people like me
if there is a bubble burst, as they call it, you know, you could make a lot of money. >> clinton is expected to double down on trump's housing record as the campaign events today. but not before she enlisted the help of senator elizabeth warren who also went after trump on on the housing issue. >> donald trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown, because it meant he could buy up more property on the cheap. what kind of a man does that? what kind of a man roots for people to get thrown out of their house? a small insecure money grubber who doesn't care who gets hurt, so long as he makes a profit off it. >> as clinton and trump rage their war of word, bernie sanders made steps to try to take the june 7th california primary. sanders's campaign adviser tells nbc news the campaign is releas a

she had happened the night of the alleged assault. cosby invited her to dinner and offering her wine and unspecified pills. he urged me to take them. constand told the detectives the pills made her dizzy. i got scared. i thought i was having a bad reaction to something. i had no strength in my legs. in constand's account, cosby then started inappropriately touching her under her shirt and pant as she slipped in and out of consciousness. she told the detectives when she came to that my bra was over my breasts, up by my neck. in a statement, cosby gave to police in 2005, that was referenced in court, he admitted sexual contact occurred but said it was consensual. his defense attorney calls constand's story inconsistent and said it lacked credibility. >> the evidence presented today in a montgomery courtroom confirms that cosby is not guilty. >> reporter: the only case against cosby but multiple on
accusing cosby of sexual misconduct. cosby has repeatedly denied them all. some of those accusers could potentially be called to testify in the andrea constand case. >> this case could be won or left based on whether other women are allowed to speak at this trial. >> reporter: heidi thomas could be one of them. >> this is our case. i don't get a chance to face him in court for me. so andrea constand is doing it for all of us, myself included. >> the judge has set an arraignment day for july 20th. so-called muscle cars may be known for their speed and the cool factor. but how are they with safety? for the first time ever, the insurance institute for highway safety ran three top selling muscle cars through a series of crash tests. the 2016 chevy camaro and dodge challenger. none of them performed well enough
