whenthe state made aers, commitment to us. i knew that i wasn't going to make a fortune. but i would have a secure pension plan when i retired.

7:35 am
you are being ridiculous. >> so, bernie or bust people you are being ridiculous. >> i thought that she was very effective in calming that crowd this were very edgey with the demonstrators outside mike, all day long and it was very unsettling to be in the arena as you two know and to hear every speech even elizabeth warren who is the goddess of the movement to hear we trusted you, as she was trying to speak. i was so frayed they would be disrespectful and i held may breath it seems ironic because on a day where theme was about unity and bringing party together to have that happen. >> the slogan is unity together, isn't that redundant. >> isn't that redundant. >> here's the thing why wouldn't they be mad. these e-mails coming out and it looks like the whole thing is rigged. that would insight me even more. >> i was out there and i swear mike there was nobody for
7:36 am
hillary among those demonstrators. they were chanting, jill, not hill. first they were bernie for day and as bite came clear he would give a rousing endorsement of hillary clinton they started on the fall back position which was jill stein and green party. and feud between gary johnson and jill stein in the green party they are getting around 10 percent now. remember what ralph nader did in 2,000, he absolutely change the result with his vote. >> with bush beating gore. >> moment number two according to mike and alex. bernie sanders again. >> they were waiting for him. people were wondering will he pull a ted cruz and or will he endorse hillary clinton. >> i understand that many people here in this convention hall and around the country are disappointed about the final result of the nominating
7:37 am
process. i think it is fair to say that no one is more disappointed then i am. hillary clinton will make an outstanding president and i am proud to stand with her tonight. thank you all, very much. >> what do you think of his speech. >> i thought that his speech left no room between him and hillary, no distance him and the first lady, secretary clinton. i think that he gave sub stan live a reason for his followers to now grin and bear it, either go with hillary or get out of the process. >> people thought it was a stump speech and he is just throwing in hillary clinton. >> it was rousing, you have to admit. he could have easily been, all of the stuff we have seen, with ted cruz he could have gone easy on the endorsement. >> it was a long time into the speech before he got to it but when he got to it. >> what will he get out of
7:38 am
that. >> well, he already did get, you know, college tuition, in public universities, he has that in the platform, he has very strong and democratic party platform which is as a result of his efforts the most progressive party platform, left wing, party platform ever. so i think he steered the party in his direction and the fact that he did it so noblely in the face of the provocation you referenced those e-mails where they were sabotaging the poor old guy from the get go. >> from the get go. >> if i was a bernie sander supporter and young i would be so disillusioned and disappointed. >> they weren't just mad they were pissed off. >> they are still selling bernie sanders shirts. >> number one moment for us and the whole country michelle obama's speech. she almost burst into tears when they talk about where they live and their daughters.
7:39 am
>> how we insist that the hateful language that they hear from public figures on tv does in the represent the true spirit of this country. how we explain when someone is cruel, or act like a bully you don't stoop to their level. no, our motto is when they go low we go high.. >> i wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. and i have watch two intelligent black young woman playing with their dog on the white house lawn. because of hillary clinton, my daughter and all of our sons and daughter now take for granted a woman can be president of the united
7:40 am
states. >> i thought it was fantastic. >> i was watching from a bar in fishtown. i had to come to work we had a dinner break. i was at the bar, watching, everybody in the crowd, were watching her with attention. she's probably the most popular public figure in america today. >> would i think so. >> last night she nailed it i think for hillary clinton. she went over board. they are talking about the white house built by slaves and her daughters looking out the window, if you weren't touched by that you have a heart of steel. >> people said they were in tears. >> they made me cry and i'm an old white guy. >> we will miss those obama's. >> people we will see her come back again, running for office. >> are you telling me that a first lady could run for the presidency. >> geraldo great to see you great to see you my friend. >> two minute break coming
7:41 am
back. it's a pretty simple question: is pat toomey's agenda your agenda? toomey voted seven times to defund planned parenthood. he even tried to shut down the federal government in order to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. and toomey's against a woman's right to choose and supports overturning roe v. wade which would allow states to criminalize abortion. pat toomey: he's focused on his own agenda, not us. majority forward is responsible for the content of this advertising. flows into one incredibleh water experienceld

and, we will need that sun screen if you are outdoors walking around philadelphia today enjoying the sites. that is your seven day forecast. back to the wells fargo center mike and alex. our eagles players better have that sun screen on for day two of the training camp here in south philadelphia. not advisingly one of the topics yesterday was that little press conference they had, quarterbacks, it seems to me that we should talk sam bradford because he is number one when it comes to quarterbacks but third string quarter back carson wentz. >> what hes number one overall pick. >> but you know sam back in the day was number one as well g. cobb. >> it was a long time ago. >> but that was, as alex said a long time ago and right now everything is about carson. he is the quarterback of the future. he is the guy that everybody has hopes and they expect maybe to win a championship
7:51 am
maybe win a super bowl down the road. that is what everybody is thinking and that is why they invested as much as they put in him. he looked good yesterday. he is still learning. he has a lot to learn. >> gary, people have been thinking and talking about the competition, and they must not like each other and maybe spend something time together in this off season, paddle boarding buddies. >> they were out in san diego, they spent time to get to know each other. they do act friendly but when it comes down to the field it is competitive, because sam has always been the guy. he was number one pick in the draft, always been a starter but now he knows his days are limited here in philadelphia because you don't move up all that much in the draft and give up as much as they gave up for carson wentz to put him on the bench for so long. he will really sit bench this year but next year it will be
7:52 am
carson wentz team. >> really. >> next year. >> what about chase daniel. >> well, chase, the guy that is always among the guys that go to the wedding and never get married, that is where chase is. chase will not be the guy that runs this team. if he does it for a game or two that may happen but chase is no the in the plans. it will go from sam bradford to carson went. the those are the guys that will be quote unquote franchise quarterbacks so they will be running things? chase is here because of doug pederson they work in kansas city together. >> always a always a bridesmaid never a bride. >> he knows offense. he will be a coach to carson, a guy that is there to advise him. that is his role. he knows his role. >> he is a big deal, i remember to miss sue and chase daniel is a god at miss sue.
7:53 am
>> well, okay, okay, i'm just saying i know he has ability. >> he was good there. he did a lot of great things but philadelphia is not there. >> that was a long time ago. >> being good in columbia, missouri is one thing. >> you went to kansas. >> go jay hawks. >> g, thanks. >> my pleasure. >> when you have an event like what we're having here in philadelphia, the dnc, people are running short of sleep. >> they have a #called team no sleep. >> is that right. >> i should that have #on my forehead new because i'm running on fumes as they say. see bars are opened until 4:00. we will talk to doctor mike how do you survive with a lack of sleep. there are some things you can do to perk yourself up. plus demi lovato she was just one of the celebrities in town for the dnc, wait until you see private concert that

7:58 am
that is what people are experiencing right now in the city of philadelphia they are getting up, going to meetings, it is all over the place, all day long, you have convention at night and then go to the parties and gathering afterward. you are not getting enough sleep. well, how would that manifest itself. >> well, it can have significant effects, one it can effect your performance, and, it can affect your cognition. number two, it can make you depressed. it can make you irritable. we know you can get that way, a little bit. >> yes. >> it can cause poor judgment and increased -- decrease labido, how do you like that. >> yes, i have notice that had. >> there is nothing we can do about it. when is next time this will happen. >> maybetories something you can do about it. >> there are several ways to
7:59 am
combat this. >> this kind of experience is a acute sleep deprivation it is not common i can, that people suffer with like me. try to extend the amount of time you're sleeping. you also have to make sure that the quality of the sleep is good. don't get interrupted or woke up a lot you can nap not more than 30 minutes a day. do it for 15 or 20 minutes, power napping, and one trick that i have learned over thousands of years i have been sleep deprived is number one is you drink coffee, you have several sips through the day. you don't have a big large gulp in the morning and that is it. you have sips through the day, get exercise, try to move around get sunlight and you will be owe kaine get through it. >> i love doctor mike's advice about not i'm not getting enough sleep, and his advice was, get more sleep.
