george and from washington, d.c. ejdion. let's bring the panel in on those numbers. the caveats that we just heard from mark murray are important because even in the head to head poll you see hillary clinton well under 50%, donald trump well under 50%. there is a lot of undecided and unhappy people. >> unhappy, yeah, grumpy. yeah, i mean, i think it's to be expected. it's good news that she has widened her lead but there is still a significant portion of bernie supporters who are waiting for him to endorse her or who are waiting for signals who have not made up their mind and who find it -- who are continuing to use the -- when they talk to a pollster use that option of gary johnson or jill stein to be a protest vote. and i agree with mark, as we get closer to nova lot of those people are going to peel off. senator sanders has not endorsed her yet or appeared with her yet, all the things that happened -- we can compare it to '08 and our puma friends the people who said they would never support barack obama but within days of his clinching she had conceded, she was already campai

by revelations by george papadopoulos informed sessions and trump about his connections to russia, and told carter paige he was going to russia in 2016 where we now know he met with a member of russian leadership. george papadopoulos and paige would communicate with sessions since he was the chairman of the advisory committee on which they sat. what made less sense frankly were sessions' claims of complete ignorance on which foreign diplomats they spoke to or whether they told him they planned to travel to russia. and trump tweeting everybody is asking why the justice department and fbi is not looking into all the dishonest tea going on with crooked hillary and the democrats. if trump were to fire sessions, wouldn't that clear the way for a new ag that could fire the man in charge of the investigation. joining me now is the man that sits on the house judiciary committee. good morning to you. you have accused jeff sessions flat out of perjury and said he should absolutely resign. would you stand by that call for him to resign even if it cleared the way for donald trump to fire robe

and right in the center is george papadopoulous, the then 29-year-old former trump campaign adviser who last month pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about police efforts to get dirt on hillary clinton from russians. he is the latest person to be officially implicated in what we like to call stupid watergate. and papadopoulous's presence during which he allegedly bragged about his ability to arrange a meeting between trump and vladimir putin seems to be triggering a form of amnesia in trump who once told us having a great memory was a true requisite for becoming a competent tent president. >> if she can't remember, she can't be president. she doesn't remember anything. no hez tagsz, one of the great memories of all time. were you instructed on how to use -- i can't remember. >> do you remember george papadopoulous during that march meeting? >> i don't remember much when that meeting. it was a very unimportant meeting. took place a long time -- don't remember much about it. >> but he does remember it wasn't important. i have my panel of legal experts with me to unpack it all. thank y

george w. bush, who's been virtually absent from the political scene for the last eight years. he did not campaign for mitt romney in 2012 and announced that he would not attend next month's republican convention in cleveland. but in an effort to save his party's most vulnerable senators, including those whose campaigns had become more challenging with trump at the top of the ticket, bush has headlined fund-raisers for two republican senators and plans to help three more, including mccain. although mccain and bush have had their moments, while eating birthday cake while hurricane katrina ravaged new orleans, the two are plain enemies at times. remember the contentious primary contest in 2000? now they're joining forces to help secure the senator future. it's george w. bush to the rescue. can he clean up trump's mess? joining me now is dr. kelly ward, former arizona state senator and republican candidate for u.s. senate running against senator john mccain. thank you very much for being here, ms. ward. i'll start by asking you what do you make of the george w. bush rescue effort for

take us back to the recession of george bush, those policies will hurt african-americans and poor whites. republicans are scared of african-americans and poor whites and latinos coming together in the south, because if that happens, the solid south is over and they would no longer have a stronghold on the political electorate in this country. >> leah, the book you wrote gets to this challenge. for african-american republicans, they're trying to sort of thread a line of really supporting the policies that are best for their own community, right? for black folks. but also existing inside of a party that to reverend barber's point, often on a policy basis or even rhetorically, i'll fix it for you. i'll swoop in and be this great white hope because your communities are so bad, that's tough to defend. >> not only that. if we look at current polling, it shows black republicans, black conservatives actually don't support donald trump. so that says something, when you don't have the support of the black members within your party and who are very vocal about not supporting whoever the nomi

, obviously. donald trump is not really that different if you look back at george wallace of the world but in terms of his success, he's a unique candidate. now we are talking about the idea of having two women on a ticket. something that clearly even one woman on a ticket has never happened before. how would that actually work in this culture that still has not been able to produce a woman president as modern and evolved as we think of ourselves as being? >> i don't know. i feel like i want to ask joy reid. if you have got a woman at the top of the ticket which we are now, we, ever since hillary clinton was a plausible nominee going back to 2008, we have had our heads around that if -- even if we didn't achieve it until this week. once you're there, once for the first time in 240 years you got a woman at the top of the ticket, does it make it more challenging to have two women on the ticket than having one, or is it a sign of strength and confidence in a woman being at the top of the ticket that we are not then going to put a gender barrier on the number two position? i remember, i th

what. >> former -- richard clarke who is the famous hair on fire guy who tried to warn george w. bush about 9/11 to no avail was on bill maher on friday night and this is what he said about his fears about donald trump. >> the president's going to meet with putin next week. advisers will not even say that he's going to bring this up. >> no, he won't. >> because he was the beneficiary. >> of course. that's why he's not investigating it and doing all the things we need to do to make sure it doesn't happen again. this is the 21st century equivalent of having marines land on the jersey shore. they invaded our country, they invaded our political system and they won, and he doesn't care because he won. >> the razor explanation, presuming donald trump has the same love of country that anyone else would is that donald trump benefitted from what the russians did before and wouldn't mind benefitting from it again. is that a fair assumption? >> we have to wonder that this commission that he's created which i know you're talking about later is an instrument of the russian government to try

something that this kind of dynamic has been happening. it started under george w. bush -- it didn't start, but it ramped up under george w. bush, took off under obama, tamped down a little bit. jose and i, having not been born in this country, are not fish to be caught and released. we are human beings. it is sadly, as a journalist and as a mexican immigrant who is an american citizen, this notion of how we are spoken about, we are caught and released in some way, is the dehumanization, right? so these -- what's happening here is that actually the v.o.i.c.e. program is probably going to be a losing policy, in that president donald trump, who considers these policies to be winners, what that policy is going to do is allow us as journalists to have access to data which will ultimately, according to our analysis at latino usa and our colleagues, will prove that undocumented immigrants actually commit fewer crimes, that crime is actually decreased while immigration, including undocumented immigration, has increased in the united states. and that these are communities that are on the who

% went up. trump would radically cut even more than george bush did taxes on the very, very top like himself and create vast tax loopholes. and while there is no causal relationship, there is a clear core relationship. what taxes at the very top come down, the job situation gets worse. >> and we can see from the chart under the policies of the current president who has a 54% approval rating. when barack obama took office after the bush economy, which is also lots of tax cuts for the rich we had the bottom dropping out of the job market. you can see it's grown every month since then. and david k. johnston, you look at this new gdp number we just got. 2.9% gdp growth in the third quarter. is there anything that donald trump has proposed that would improve on that? >> no. he would run up huge budget deficits while under obama, the deficit has been coming down. the debts doubled. but the deficit per year has been coming down until right now. and donald trump is not proposing any way to finance what we really need to make the economy grow, as wall street started saying last week, and that

september 11th, whatever you think about george w. bush, in the moments after 9/11 george bush i think handled everything perfectly. i mean, there's no criticism i can put in terms of how he managed things with a steady hand, how he reassured the country. he was presidential. there will come a time when every president will be tested by a crisis. when you think about donald trump and when you think of that potential for a real crisis, we've had them in puerto rico, we had them yesterday, but when you think of a president who's transactional, when you think of a president who has no intellectual curiosity, when you think of a president who shoots from the hip, i worry tremendously how he will manage a crisis, a real crisis in which this isn't a drill, in which this isn't a simple mistake or a few lives at risk, where the balance of humanity relies on how he makes that decision. to me that's terrifying. i have to say, joy, when i think about that, when i think about that truly it makes me wonder that this is a president who's a president in title alone. he's not a leader. when we c

truth, make it funny or they're kill you. george carlin's political humor is the reason i got into the game. i think that "snl" did a great job of being fair in their critiques of secretary clinton in that sketch, which is very important. but at the end of the day. donald trump only needs to get about 48% of the people who show up to vote to vote for him. if you factor in johnson and stein. so 48% of the people who show up have to vote for donald trump. so comedy and ridicule has always been one of the most valuable social tools we have. it might not reach all the voters but it will reach their kids because at this point the goal of that sketch seems to me to show donald trump supporters that they're being suckers. >> dean, donald trump, a, seems to to be very sensitive to ridicule. that seems to be part of his psychological makeup. but there has become this culture. even people who support donald trump admit supporting trump is kind of -- not kind of, it's become uncool. socially unacceptable to a lot of people. so did ridicule make those voters double down and say we're fighting
