7:08 am
with windows down, girl all alone, all the way here from new mexico. so whether you agree these protesters or not, one thing you have to have whole lot of respect for they believe in their cost to drive here all the way from new mexico and to sleep outside in this heat, humidity for this whole week. you got to give it to them. they actually believe in whatever the cause is out here. so one thing you won't see anybody break through, that fence, may not be strong, but look at the philadelphia set up here. you have concrete barricades, those trash trucks by the way, mike, they let them full to keep them even heavier if somebody tries to bash through here. but nobody getting through here, even if they have a big truck like this eagle player does. but, man, what a scene last night right around 10:00 as the president was speaking inside that was what is going on outside. >> probably interesting for people out of town, right across from where we, are like steve says, where the philadelphia eagles football team, their training many is underway, those are the cars
7:09 am
getting through, those are eagles players. >> i find it fast nature to go see what kind of cars they're driving. like just lever it up, see the cars roll, in like a car show or something. >> they're fancy big trucks, fancy? >> i like the green light, eagle through and through. >> speaking of colors, on the floor of the convention here at the wells fargo center r, passing out redfield ers? >> or red sign. >> wait. are you there blue ones? >> illinois on the far left. looks like they have blue ones. >> participation, you hole up certain colors? so you have blue, i bet, are those the white ones in the middle there? are they? i don't know. we'll figure it out. go down and steel one. >> we'll steel up? >> why not? >> this is what i love about being here at the wells fargo sent, kind of get preview what's going to come tonight with the sound checks, what

7:11 am
rarely seen him out of his police uniform, he had a beautiful gray soft gray suit on, man, looked style english in a big smile on his face, he was relaxed. >> yes. >> gabby giffords from last night. >> in the white house, she will spend up to the gun lobby, that is why i am voting for hillary. >> gabby giffords shares her story, former arizona congress woman nearly died as you know from a gunshot wound to the head, five years ago now. now, she says, she is supporting hillary, hillary for president, because of her strong stands on gun control. >> and then was lee daniels. >> who comes from where i come from. who doesn't think that you

7:13 am
contractors who feel cheated. and dis illusion dollars customers who feel they've been ripped off. trump says he want to run the nation like he's running his business. god help us. >> i knew a con when i see one. >> oh, don't you love it when new york billionaires go after each other. >> from one billionaire to another. >> he wanted to unite behind hillary clinton to defeat a dangerous man. >> what does that mean? he doesn't agree with everything, just don't vote for trump that's why i'm here? >> kind of like a ted cruz. >> interesting. >> well, donald trump is un fire for calling on russia to find and publish hillary clinton missing emails, 33,000
7:14 am
of them. >> suspect the russian government is behind that recent dnc e-mail. >> which doesn't have anything to do with hillary clinton, about the dnc. >> yes, dub err wasserman shultz. some speculate deliberate attempt to help trump. so yesterday trump called the idea farfetched but he did urge russia to hack hillary clinton's private emails. >> russia, listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. >> essentially urged a foreign adversary to commit cyber espionage against the former secretary every state, some saying it is treason. the clinton campaign respond in the part saying this has gone from ac matter of curiosity and matter of politics to being national security issue. >> president obama, has been the moseying rant president in our history. his views of the world as he
7:15 am

7:17 am
average, better than the papal weekend, the same as the rnc in 2,000. >> this convention even with the political fest across the street, which we thought could help us, so far hasn't shown anything difference. >> it is a good week, but it is not a 50,000 person convention casino of week. >> i think they have a loft schedule activities downtown, down in south philly then different part of town, so we're getting a lot of protesters. getting a lot of cops working it, we're getting a lot of volunteers, but not too much from the convention itself. >> been really good for hotels as well, and of course, air b and b. so people who just say the hotels are too expensive. back to you, mike anal next. >> thank, dave. sue serio, what time is it? let me see, 7:17. oh, before we get to her, i was just looking at one of the stories about the emails, donald trump asking the russians to hack.
7:18 am
>> 30,000 emails. >> we'll get to that in just a second, though. so with the local paper here, this is the metro, this is little free pain their we have in the philadelphia area. for the people from out of town. so history, her story. a lot of her story being made here. are you ready for that one? >> from the daily news, let me open the whole thing now. hold on, hold on. people, help me out here. alex? there go. see, on the front there. look at this, big spread. can you read the headlines for me here? >> he's with her. >> i got that one. >> smart woman verse thaws other guy solving lunch bucket issues over champagne. ramsey, him a's a strong steady leader, showing former commissioner ramsey there. >> yes, former police commissioner. >> but he also did a lot of work with president obama on the police task force that
7:19 am
they had. >> you better believe it, also police commissioner of chicago and washington dc back in the day, stepped down here in philly back in january. >> and on the sign i had says russia, you're hired. >> that's owl philadelphia daily news. >> that's about the emails. >> then this is good headline too from the inky above the fold, presidential seal of approval. that's a good one. new york times, there, all over philly, we go right here. there you go. so that was the surprise last night, because the nominee doesn't normally come out on a wednesday night, normally wait until a thursday night. and so the daily news, which is pain their hates donald trump, lock him up, instead of lock her up. lock him up. then the new york post you got to love him. hold on. think went with sex sells. he goes star wars being the trump with the russians, but
7:20 am
then this hot mess. meet city's wildest model. you got to love the new york post. >> the one you were reading this morning. >> exactly. way to go, mike. >> i can never do that again. >> nope. >> all charges dropped in the freddie gray case down in baltimore, maryland. why prosecutors decided not to go forwards with remaining trials for the 300 officers who were supposed to be on trial. all charges dropped. i thought this was a homicide. i guess nobody did it.

>> charges dropped against three police offers earnings connected when freddie gray. >> prosecutors argued gray was illegally arrested after he ran away from a bike patrol officer. and that officer's failed to use seatbelt on him, in a police van, or call for medics when he indicated that he was very hurt. freddie gray died a week after
7:24 am
his arrest, maryland mosby defended her decision to charge the officers. >> no matter how much we may disagree with this ruling, we do not believe that freddie gray killed himself. we take back, and a mother, as a mother, the decision not to proceed on these trials, on the remaining trials is agonizing. >> so that was a very emotional press conference. see the whole thing, she tiered up at one point, but ken rotweiler and congressman, thank you for coming in. everyone seemed to be wondering yesterday if the medical examiner ruled it a homicide, then how come nobody's responsible for freddie gray's death? ken? >> you have to prove it is a homicide do you have do that in a courtroom. states attorneys, which are prosecutors, you know, that's elected position. they're basically in those positions to win. and in this case, what
7:25 am
happened was there were four trials, and there were no convictions, there were three acquittals, one hung jury. so marion mosby was o for four, and decided because this case would be tried in the front of the same judge who gave those acquittals, she decided she's not going any further. she didn't want to be o for six. so, you know, important for them to get the convictions, decided with the evidence that was presented they couldn't get convictions, this he decided to drop the charges against the three remains officers. >> so the fact that the medical examiner ruled it a homicide doesn't hold that much weight? >> it holds some weight but i still have to prove it in a courtroom. said it was a homicide, one piece of evidence, lot of other pieces of evidence, judge decided not enough to convict. >> what my good friends kensett saying right now, we have to remember these officers elected to have a bench trial. a judge only trial. the first officer gambled and elect today have a jury trial,
7:26 am
that is the one that ended in a hung jury. all other officers tried after that did so with circuit judge, judge williams, and all of them were acquitted. at some point attorney mostly felt like her investigation had been stymied, and she was not getting the proper investigative backing from the department to conduct full fledged prosecution and full-fledged investigation. now she finds herself looking down the barrel after lawsuit herself, a defendant now. >> oh, my goodness. >> police officer? >> police officer. >> back to you, were they over charged this. >> no, well, look, they were acquitted completely, so i don't think they were over charged, there was a second degree murder charge, there was aggravated as all, no, i don't think they were over charged at all. let me pick up on what chaka said, i find it interesting. first of all freddie gray ' families paint four philadelphia $6 million in a
7:27 am
civil case. just like chaka said, marry mosby now has been sued by five of the police officers, after the criminal charges have been dropped after the police officers, she has to face a civil suit and face defemation and false arrest with this lawsuit, you know, when these five police officers walk into a courtroom and testify against her. >> well, just frustrating for the families. they called it a murder, but nobody did it? what about the police officer who was supposed to strap him into the back of the van? why was that so difficult, ken? >> reporter: well, you know, they presented the evidence. and let me tell you something, what's interesting, this is what marion mosby said. she said that the police, there is inherent beyonce when police investigate police. and she said the police mishandled the investigation, so she was basically criticizing the police with regard to the evidence that she was, you know, stuck with, in terms of proving the case against these police officers at trial. so she was basically saying that there was botched
7:28 am
investigation police investigating police isn't good thing, they didn't dot proper investigation, and that led to the acquittals. >> she has been calling for reform since the very beginning, and the casino of reform that marion mosby has condition calling for is the fact that she is asking for independent investigators, not necessarily independent investigation but if i'm going to prosecute officers, i need investigators in outside to assist with that, that's what she has been asking for. >> i'm sure they'll let you do your own investigating, mike. >> thank a, shank a. thank you, ken, providing inside on what happened yesterday. >> good seeing you. >> 7:28 this thursday. >> history making embraced and donald trump gets mocked. see which big moments from last night, make our top three for the dnc. >> are you telling me this is time for the mike and alex top three moments of a political
7:29 am
convention like we did last week and this week. >> yes, it is. >> i like it. 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.

8:06 am
>> no. >> remember last week in cleveland, donald trump came out the first night, we've never seen anything, but his was unusual. and of course the night before, people were surprised when after former president bill clinton spoke, she appeared, via video, and you had all of the pictures every all of the male presidents and then the glass sealing scattered, yes, it was another good moment. so i think we've seen in terms of the production value, it is pretty strong here, in philadelphia. i must say though people thought maybe they should have put that video on before bill clinton spoke to get to the national tv audience. but, in fact, inside the campaign they were worried that there may be emphasizing too much that she's a woman. they worry it might get backlash. >> they didn't want that. >> while the president was speaking last night, there was a little bit after violent confrontation outside on broad street. here's what it look like whether some of the protesters broke through a fence.
8:07 am
>> one of the reason i wanted to show that you is hillary clinton, her except stance speech, how much should she bring up how angry the fans, sanders supporters are still are? >> interesting. i think there has been, you know, it is early on, there was something of it, even potential, coup, bernie sanders people saying we don't trust you, we doesn't want you, et cetera, then of course sanders led the acclamation for her nomination, he got involved, and i think that was a negotiated settlement. and then what we've seen in the last two nights, bill clinton, also, new the man nominated to be vice president, tim kaine, and then guess what president obama all mention bernie sanders. >> they did. >> and they all get a response from the crowd, and bernie is,
8:08 am
as the camera goes to burn, smiles, looks emotional, i think what they've done is settled that down. so i think she's got to mention bern. >> i i do too. >> she would be out of sync bye what has been done by her husband and bernie sanders, o bamm an up. >> and they feel like this whole thing has been rigged. >> so still people, i think, you know, what is telling about this, i think the parties really bernie's party at this point. >> it is. >> i think it has gone to the left. i think when you look at the platform, on things like minimum wage, on things like ppp. , and people last night still holding up signs. >> i think tim kaine far enough to the left? >> tim kaine, he is too far to the right on issues, remember, tim kaine he is opposed to abortion. you know that, so when the left looks at tim kaine and mrs. clinton, they say establishment, you want
8:09 am
someone -- >> well, before go, we've had great speeches leading to up this. bill clinton, president barack obama, hillary even admitted not so great with the speech giving. what do you think she needs to say tonight on her big night as she accepts the fact she's been nominate in the. >> see, what happened, alec, billing a narrative. and the narrative says she's qualified. remember what president obama said last night? he said she is more qualified than bill, more qualified than i am. not only that they talk about her passion, for families, for kids, so what they're going to say you know what this is repeat of something that president clinton said i felt was pretty effective, republicans have built charge tour of something i know personally, i know mike, i know mike couple of years, oh, mike did this, mike did. that will wait a second, i know mike, but mike made mistakes. >> that's what all of these are about. i expect hillary clinton will tell more stories about herself, her family, her
8:10 am
grandchildren, now, to make cher self more human and real and say the person that you have been hearing about, benghazi, the emails, that's not the real me. >> okay. >> juan, have you had any fun these past two weeks? >> i've had at love fun. i've been going to conventions since 1980. so you get a lot of experience, but i've never been to one like in cleveland. that was something. trump exceptional character in american life and the convention was exceptional. this week i thought my gosh, look at this, the bernie sanders people both at this one, too, we saw what happened with ted cruz refusing end doser: was there potential for that her? boy have they had err ray of stars, last night president obama but night before president clinton, night before michelle owe bamm, a wow.
8:11 am
>> amazing. >> and the best part i got to meet mike and alex. >> oh, now you're being nice. >> oh, just go home. can't top this moment. >> i can't beat it, man, i can't. >> thank you, my friends. >> alex, my pleasure. >> talking about celebrity? >> after a couple of minute break, is that what we're doing? is that what we're doing? we'll come right back in about two minute. >> gone to nuns tousled did a in less than two heres. how to figure out how to make vodka in their parent basement. that's what you need to know. real a story for the age, don't you think? come on back. having great time this morning and making drinks.
