3:00 am
♪ >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "morning joe." it's the top of the hour. what a weekend we had. we have mark halpern and casey hunt and willie and necessity morning. willie? >> yes, ma'am. >> did you think it was going to happen with american pharoah? >> i thought it was going to happen. >> come on! >> yeah. >> he did not. >> the big winner. >> is that a $2 ticket? >> yeah that's the one you frame. that's the $2 bet at the belmont on american pharoah to win. >> that was such a race. >> 40 cents? >> it there were other bets. i was incredible. truly incredible.
3:01 am
you heard going in that this horse might be different than the other ones. >> but didn't you feel we heard this before. >> yes. >> and you're waiting right here. this is usually where it falls apart on the backstretch here coming down the homestretch for the horse to fall behind. but look how strong american pharoah is. just widening the lead as he goes and incredible story. first time since 1978. we've been talking about it for nearly 40 years. will it happen? it finally happened saturday. >> i had chills. that was an incredible moment. i always feel bad about horse racing. but then when they're in the full gallop, there is nothing more beautiful. absolutely nothing. >> the greatest triple crown winner since 1967. >> all right. that wasn't the only thing that happened this weekend. we run the gamut. last night i went to the tony's. >> were through? >> i never miss it. >> i was there until the end.
3:02 am
first of all, the new host -- i'm usually asleep by 8:00. larry david was there and, of course, i gave him the mint. >> did he need one? >> well you never know. he carries around the drops. i give him minutes. he met my daughter. she said oh, my gosh he's exactly the same person. he is larry david. i said that's correct. but it was fun. i had an awkward moment with bradley cooper very awkward. >> captured on video? >> it's probably on video. i was introducing my daughter. and walking up to him. i kept poking him and he kept going. and, like kind of gave a scoff. i was like wait a minute. and everyone was kind of looking at me like that's really sad. she's running after bradley cooper and i'm like no i just want to introduce him to my daughter. >> he came back. he came back. i said amelia please. i'm not like a weirdo running after movie stars. it's not even me.
3:03 am
>> i was disappointed that "sky light" didn't win more than it did win. >> interesting mix of winners. >> yeah. it was actually. >> i loved kelly o'hara's acceptance speech, "the king and i." >> highlight of the night. >> right. >> she is nominated plenty of times. she is the best actress on broadway and she finally won. >> and her speech was so human. it was so full of joy and charm and ridiculousness and dancing and it was really very very lovely night. what did you think of the host? >> they were great. they were cute together. very cute together. >> and then of course the most momentous and important heartwrenching momentst weekend is the funeral for beau biden. vice president bow biden is at his home in delaware this morning with no public schedule today, two days after his eldest son beau was laid to rest. biden was mourned by his family and a long list of dignitaries. president obama was nearly
3:04 am
overcome by emotion several times during his eulogy for the 46-year-old former state attorney general and iraq veteran. >> it was a sign of an incredible family who brushed await possibility of privilege for the harder better reward of earning his own way. and what greater inheritance is there? what greater inheritance than to be part of a family that passes on the values of what it means to be a great parent? that passes on the values of what it means to be a true citizen. that passes on the values of what it means to give back fully and freely without expecting anything in return. that's what our country was
3:05 am
built on. that's beau. he made you want to be a better person. isn't that final lit measure of a man? isn't that finally the measure of a man? the way he lives? how he treats others? no matter what life may throw at him. we do not know how long we've got here. we don't know when fate will intervene. we cannot discern god's plan. what we do know is that with every minute that we got, we can live our lives in a way that takes nothing for granted. >> you know there were world leaders there. there were rock stars there.
3:06 am
but that's not what it was about, really. and, mike you wrote a piece i think that really crystallize that's. politicians often have a shell but they develop around their persona. sometimes they need it to protect themselves or sometimes it's what they have to sort of push an image. and somehow the biden family always remained a kind of true to their humanity. and what you write, mike here in "the daily beast" at son's wake joe bide sen onen is one of us. they stood next in line after 6 1/2 hours, they quietly summoned all their strength to offer support and sorrow for a loss that seemed nearly unbearable to them. joe biden held their hand hugged them both thanked them for coming and kissed each woman on the cheek. how long have you known the vice president was asked? well i don't know him, she answered. this was the first time i met him. and you stood in line all this
3:07 am
time, i said to her? how come? because i love who he is. she said. he's a family man who knows what it's like to lose something you love in life. i've always loved him. he's one of us. and that's the legacy really of beau biden, joe biden, the family. >> yeah, mark was there on friday for the wake as well. and i would tell you the line was epic. it was as finally drawn portrait of america as you're going to see. i'm not talking about the people who were ushered in the front door of the church. i'm talking about the people who stood for 11 hours. and the vice president and his family stood at the front of the alter for 11 hours. and shook every last hand. but the people in line many of them did not know the vice president. they knew of him. they had encountered him in wilmington and around delaware or wherever. they did not know him. they stood there out of respect and admiration, i think, for the
3:08 am
family. a unique family. >> i've never seen people wait in line for five hours so happily and so peacefully. it's a small state. they call their politicians by their first name there. but people in delaware saw in beau bide sen what theside enis what the country saw in him. the family so strong standing and waiting and greeting everybody. and then for president obama to come and give the best eulogies i ever heard. and for him to be emotional in public. again, it's a reflection of what kind of person beau biden was and what incredible family it is. >> one of the things we do in this business is we cover politics very well. we cover it intensely. casey is here. she just came back if texas. we give you every anecdote that happens. but what we don't do and sometimes it's almost impossible to do is cover and reflect and report on the relationship that's people have in politics.
3:09 am
and the relationship between the president of the united states and the vice president of the united states is truly unique. it is one -- it's a bond of friendship as strong as i know of. not just in politics but two people in life. >> yeah. >> the president said you know he considers himself part of the biden family. and the biden family as i said all weekend is just so strong and there for their state and for the country and i think the outpouring is well deserved and fantastic. but really just a sad and touching weekend. >> a couple other quick things that i noticed. i was watching it on c-span where they just in the camera set up. there is no one talking and you watch the mourners come through. the other side of it was joe biden handled it as if he were there for the people who were coming. people coming through in wheelchairs. he's down on the knee kissing their hand. and i just thought, my gosh. in the moment of the worst grief
3:10 am
imaginable, he is there for all these other people. it was just incredible to watch. >> it's why you were writing probably just came off the pen. your piece was being passed around to members of the white house, people who work in the administration said they were bawling. we all have struggles with our kids and want the best for them and can't imagine losing them and, yet, he somehow this family joe biden especially beau biden, a symbol of how to love your children and have to let go too. which is hard to watch. but, wow. how to do it beautifully. >> and his other kids hunter and ashley's speeches were absolutely beautiful. hunter's particularly broke your heart when he talked about after the car accident, beau coming and holding his hand and saying i love you, i love you, hang in there. and then the roles were reversed in the hospital a few days ago. he was holding beau's hand and there for his last breath. it's about as heartbreaking as anything could ever be. >> well while we're on the topic of politicians, that would
3:11 am
be someone to look at beau's legacy, especially in terms of looking at the hopefuls for 2016. several republican hopefuls for president were in iowa this weekend. for senator joanie earnst and casey, your there. did anybody stand ut from the pack? >> i was there. >> hard to say comparing to what we just talked about. >> it is a little bit difficult. i will say i've been to a number of these cattle calls now. i think we should combine them with the tony awards. maybe they can sing give us something new. but i think there were two candidates that rode in on motorcycles. they had easier. the rest of them were left fighting with each other to stand out from the pack. >> hogs pork and plenty of red meat. >> i would be tempted to ask hillary if she's ever rid own a john deere tractor.
3:12 am
>> let me tell you to hillary clinton, your definition of flat broke and mine are a little bit different. >> joanie earnst gathered seven contenders in boon, iowa, for the first annual roast and ride. >> huckabee? >> governor of texas. >> the clalg is standing out from the crowd. rick perry riding with veterans taking it all in. >> the smell of grass being cut. smell the hay being bailed. >> living freedom, riding free wk a bunch of american heroes. >> wisconsin governor scott walker stopping to remember d day on the invasion 71st anniversary. >> let's remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. >> walker was the only one to ride to boon with ernst. >> rather be president of harley-davidson? >> it would be a lot easier job. i don't think i have a shot at that one. >> also on stage saturday marco rubio, one of the first to help her with her senate campaign. she offered him a ride on the back of her bike because he's
3:13 am
never been on one. >> my mom was always terrified of motorcycles. she used to trauma ties us about them. >> he also campaigned sfoeg a packed ballroom at the holiday inn. he stayed there to save money and to try to show iowans he's just like them. >> miami dolphins man. >> yeah you won't find many dolphins fans in iowa. >> do you think this is a good place for the republican process to start? >> absolutely. >> it's not reflective of the whole country. >> it's americans. it's every day americans who live in middle part of the country who are facing the same challenges and struggles. >> it was clear on the ground there is on opening there for him. there are a lot of people that don't know him yet. >> mark you're following this with everything else you were doing this weekend. any standouts? >> walker has a big negligent eye ichlt we look at the national polls and everybody is jumbled and tied up and no clear leader in new hampshire really or south carolina. walker is strong there.
3:14 am
but as you saw in that piece, they all think that they can make their mark in iowa. even somebody like marco rubio from a different part of the country, young guy. hasn't spent much time there. but this weekend, drew big crowds. >> he did. he is one of the first people to help joanie ernst in the senate campaign. he's done a lot behind the scenes even if he hasn't done the retail campaign. >> there's a big piece in the "new york times" about speeding tickets. is it an issue? >> i think they're starting to seat knives come out for rubio. >> marco rubio. >> yes. and that's a siven hisgn of his strength. i asked him if he thinks the tickets should matter. i have to ask you, there is a "new york times" report about your collection of speeding tickets. do you have a lead foot? >> they weren't speeding tickets alone. you know i'll let people interpret what they want. it is what it is. i know when you run for president, that's going to happen. people look at every aspect of your life and talk about it. i can tell you being from miami
3:15 am
where you drive every, where having four tickets in 17 years is not considered bad. but let me just say, i don't like red light cameras. but that's another topic for another day. >> doesn't he know pride? four tickets in 17 years? >> i think there are some opponents who feel as though he was hand aid gift with this "new york times" story. because i think most people can identify having the occasional ticket and getting busted on one of the red light cameras. >> this past weekend was barbara bush's birthday. jeb bush wasn't there. but was he there in any sense? >> they had i saw one staffer who was wandering around basically asking attendee it's they had any questions about jeb bush. you know he was pretty absent. and rubio event that i went to he brought 100 plus people out to ames iowa. no free food offered or anything like. that about 100 people showed up. and those are probably larger
3:16 am
crowds than the smaller bush events that i covered in iowa. i think he's pretty mia out there. i did think that ted cruz giving they vent was interesting. i thought that was probably a missed opportunity for him. if anything this was a crowd he really could have potentially fired up. >> all right. willie? >> you're like the right hand of all the candidates. >> she is. >> here comes casey again. >> her innocent questions. >> doing a great job out. there all right. let's turn to incredible story now. manhunt underway in the state of new york after two convicted killers used power tools to break out of a maximum security state prison up near the canadian border. hundreds are joining the search now in upstate new york just 25 miles from that border. investigators have developed more than 150 leads but officials have little show for it so far. nbc's john yang has a report. >> reporter: more than 250 state and federal law enforcement officers scour the area around this eventualage in the mountains looking for clues that could lead them to the two
3:17 am
convicted killers discovered missing at a 5:30 a.m. saturday bed check. >> we're leaving no stone unturned. they could be anywhere. >> officials describe both men as very dangerous. david sweat, 35 was serving a life sentence with no parole for the 2002 killing of a sheriff's deputy near binghamton new york. richard matt was sentenced to 25 years to life for beating a man to death and dismembering him near buffalo in 1997. matt had escaped incarceration before. >> we have a lot of territory to cover. we're looking at each of them and their associates independently. >> authorities described it an escape worthy of a hollywood screen play. they stuffed their bufrpgs to make it look like they were sleeping. from separate cells, each used power tools to cut through a steel wall to reach a cat walk six stories high. they shimmied down to a tunnel below, broke through a brick wall and cut an entrance and an exit from a two foot wide pipe
3:18 am
before breaking a steel lock on a man hole a block away from the prison wall. work officials say took a matter of days to carry out. >> they left behind a racially offensive post it note reading "have a nice day." new york governor andrew cuomo retraced the escapee's path. >> we went back and pieced together what they did and it was elaborate. it was sophisticated. it encompassed thrilling through steel walls and steel pipes. >> reporter: two big questions, where did the tools come from? how did the men know how to navigate the prison's maze of pipes and tunnels since all the prison's tools have been accounted for, officials are speculating about contractor's tools. in a village of 4,000 people residents are on guard. what was your reaction when you heard the news? >> oh, my god. is this a drill? is this for real? it's very scary. this is my backyard.
3:19 am
>> my doors are locked. first time in 30 years. >> reporter: a community on edge as a manhunt goes on. >> a $100,000$50,000 apiece is posted for their capture. a couple in "the new york times" today, a couple of the detectives who pursued these guys and led to their conviction said this "he is the most vicious, evil person i have ever come across in 38 years as a police officer," talking about richard matt. another one said "he's totally, totally fearless and does not respond to pain." he said very worried for the community and for the people who prosecuted them in the past. >> they could be anywhere. so we're going to get a live report from the scene of that historic prison escape. new york governor andrew cuomo will bring us an update on the manhunt for the two convicted killers. he canceled his belmont plans to get up there and try to figure out what happened. also ahead, the top republican on homeland security congressman mike mukccaul will be
3:20 am
here. and tim kaine is not on the ballot yet but he'll talk about the short list for vice president. later, we'll talk to the father-son team who just made racing history at belmont. the owner and stable manager of american pharoah will join us with their incredible journey to the triple crown. but first, not soin credible but he's got the forecast. bill karins? >> a beautiful weekend in the northeast. we had great weather in some spots. other places weren't so lucky. one of the big stories, remember all the rain we had in may in oklahoma and texas? a lot of that funneled into the red river. that is slow moving and now going through louisiana. check out this picture of red river near shreveport where they're dealing with a list toric flood in the region. it is cresting this morning at 7:00 a.m., they're expecting the crest of the red river in shreveport. a lot of damage has been done. a lot of cattle has to be moved. a lot of problems still down river from shreveport. let's talk about the forecast. yesterday we had about three
3:21 am
tornadoes. we had numerous reports of wind damage and hail from kansas all the way through areas of illinois. the worst weather overnight was in illinois. a lot of the bad storms ended. flash flooding is still possible in a few spots. so for today, 27 million people at risk of severe storms. that goes outside of washington d.c., down through kentucky and tennessee. and the timing, the worst of the storms looks to be around 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. watch out upstate new york down through areas of eastern pennsylvania. the big cities will be spared until late today. but we will have to watch the storms closely. they could contain damaging winds and isolated tornado or two. you're watching "morning joe." we'll be right back.
3:22 am
you are looking at two airplane fuel gauges. can you spot the difference? no? you can't see that? alright, let's take a look. the one on the right just used 1% less fuel than the one on the left. now, to an airline a 1% difference could save enough fuel to power hundreds of flights around the world. hey, look at that. pyramids. so you see, two things that are exactly the same have never been more different. ge software. get connected. get insights. get optimized. the conference call. the ultimate arena for business. hour after hour of diving deep, touching base, and putting ducks in rows. the only problem with conference calls: eventually they have to end. unless you have the comcast business voiceedge mobile app. it lets you switch seamlessly from your desk phone to your mobile

3:25 am
on the trans pacific partnership. he met privately with british prime minister david cameron and will meet with iraq's prime minute stoer discuss the fight against isis. president obama is also calling for the countries to continue taking a tough stance against russia. which was not invited to the summit because of the actions in ukraine. joining us now from the summit side in the alps senior white house correspondent chris jansing. we're on day two. what is dominating the agenda today? >> counter-terrorism today. big meeting between the g-7 leaders. they invited leaders of tunisia and nigeria and as you mentioned iraqi prime minister who is basically coming here hat in hand saying i need help to fight isis. i need more help. there is an interesting dynamic here. it is the first fim that a president and the prime minister will see each other face-to-face since the iraqi forces lack the will to fight and something you know that iraq pushes back hard
3:26 am
against. the white house says they're not going to be anything -- there isn't anything done here. no promises made to iraq. david cameron of the uk said that they're going to send 125 new trainers for the iraqi forces. so let's keep an eye on that. they're also talking climate change. angela merkel very heavily behind this. there is a big summit in paris at the end of the year. she wants a communique to say what the countries are willing to do. this is the last time they'll see each other face-to-face before the end of the month. that is the deadline for the iran nuclear deal. so they're talking about that as well. but for me i think one of the things ich watching very closely after we saw them sharing beer and pretzels yesterday is the relationship between obama and angela merkel. they know they need each other. they're both very pragmatic politicians in that way. although their personal relationship isn't particularly
3:27 am
warm certainly the president wants her help in dealing with russia and vladimir putt inwho has been said you're not welcome. so we'll watch for all of those things when the president holds a news conference later on this morning. >> nbc's chris jansing in the alps. thank you very much. let's take a look at the morning papers from nbc news.com. for the first time in a decade turkey's ruling islamist party has been stripped of the parliamentary majority. the president's ruling akp party won 41% of the votes in sunday's election giving the party an estimated 258 seats, 18 shy of the minimum required to rule alone. opposition parties ruled out joining a coalition. turkey has 45 days now to form a new government after election results are officially confirmed. >> from the new jersey star ledger chaos erupted at metlife stadium in new jersey last night

reliably fast internet starts at $69.95 a month. comcast business. built for business. 33 past the hour. we're hearing a lot more from hillary clinton soon. "the wall street journal" reports she's planning a dozen speeches and announcements in the coming months on social and economic policy. aides say topics will include the cost of college, women's pay, equity and wall street regulation. yesterday clinton phoned in to a conference of fast food workers in detroit. the second annual convention of fight for 15 focused on increasing the minimum wage to 15 dollars and unionizing fast food giants like mcdonald's. clinton told the group, "i hope that every one of you will continue to raise your voices until we get all working
3:34 am
americans a better deal. i want to be your champion. i want to fight with you every day." clinton holds the first major rally for campaign in new york this saturday. my opinion, that's the kind of place you should show up at and say that and expose yourself to people and questions and whatever. she's not going to have a hard time there. that's a great message. she is speaking my language obviously. thi i would love to see her connecting with people and get the rope lines away. but a good start. we'll see whatever else she has to say in the speeches. >> she did say she supported the $15 minimum wage. >> i like it. >> chris christie tackled the question of expanding the legalized use of marijuana yesterday drawing a contrast with the obama administration governor christie says he'll clamp down on states allowing recreational use. >> you said marijuana is a gateway drug. if you were president, would you return the federal prosecutions in the states like colorado washington state? >> yes. >> go after it.
3:35 am
>> yes, sir. >> so somebody's enjoying that now in their state if you're president that, is getting turned off? >> correct. >> meanwhile, the new york time reports that a sworn statement by one of the governor's former aides accuses christie of breaking a federal law. david wildstein the mastermind of the bridge lane closing responded to a civil lawsuit unrelated to the closings. in a statement, he said governor christie shared testimony from a grand jury proceeding he had overseen as u.s. attorney that is a violation of federal law. a spokesman for the governor saying anyone suggesting he exposed grand jury information is lying or mistaken. someone told me that she does not support the $15 minimum wage she supports the fight to get the $15. >> she supports an increase. >> okay. >> it is another issue on which she's not taking a firm position. >> so what is the position? >> support an increase in the minimum wage and the efforts to
3:36 am
fight for an increase. >> okay. >> whether is she going to step this thing up? >> saturday she'll step it up a little bit. they just got a bunch of policy things that they're very comfortable with that she believes in and they're popular. >> are they going to go further? so here's -- she's got a really connect on these issues. and i wonder how she does that and if anything is possible for sure in term of her talents. here's what frank rooney rights in the "new york times," "hillary the tormentor. i've been running into people even more put off by the clintons than the nefarious operatives in the vast right-wing conspiracy ever were. they're called democrats. i had breakfast with one last week. he is furious at hillary and bill because they once again created all the ugly obvious messes but they could have and should have avoided. he's discussed it because he's come to believe that they're tainted. he also resolute. he is voting even rooting for hillary. so here he stands or rather
3:37 am
squirms exhilarated by what hillary embodied and repelled by what she represents. he's a riot of warring emotions a paradox with a pulse. the clintons will do that to a person or to a country." >> a lot of democrats including a lot of people that work in the obama white house feel the exact same way. but they're also look there are tens of millions of americans who lot of clintons and want letter to be president but they created a lot of doubts and annoyance within the democratic party with their actions around the foundation and the speeches and the e-mails. >> i guess just how to cut through that when you make these policy speeches given those three topics that you just brought up. how to cut through that and really say you can believe me. >> once she starts giving the policy speeches and stands for something, i think she'll calm a lot of people down. >> yeah. >> given what we already know, what has been reported about the foundation and about the speech money and about the $25 million in 18 months how much money -- what percentage of money do you think the republicans will spend
3:38 am

don't bother hacking into government computers to get our personal files. just get in our browser histories. >> welcome back to "morning joe." joining us, chairman of the house home land security republican congressman michael mccaul of texas. chairman, nice to you have with us. when this happened last week a lot of people said this came out of china. you think it comes from the chinese government itself. how do we know? >> we know the attack originated out of china. it has all the hallmarks of a nation state attack. the reason why, it wasn't done
3:44 am
for credit card theft purposes like target home depot. but rather it's big data mining. that tells me they're garnlgingthering intelligence information on employees to compromise them or recruit therapy as spiesthem as spies. this is highly disturbing. it is the largest breest against federal networks in history. so it's very significant. and it's not going to go away. this is the new frontier of espionage. and kline is good at it. >> you just described espionage to a tee. how should the united states government respond? >> i think that's the real issue for the administration policymakers. what is the proportionate response here? it hasn't been defined. there are no rules of the game in terms of what should be the adequate response to this. now first the attribution has to
3:45 am
be done by the government to make it very clear without any doubt that it is nation state based. but remember north korea was nation state based. what was our proportionate response to that? as these attacks happen more and more, we're going to have to clearly define what the consequences will be if a nation state attacks our government. or private sector for that matter. >> how much of this would you think would be back and forth cyber warfare? that we crash into china's computer systems? whatever. and they test forit for tat come back at us? >> data mining is sophisticated technique in terms of cyber warfare. there is no definition of cyber warfare. it does give them the ability to get information, intelligence on americans and in this case on political appointees and federal employees to compromise them and
3:46 am
commit espionage. i think you're going to see -- we saw this with blue cross/blue shield, the same type of attack. same type of information originate from the same source out of china. so this is the thirtd time we've seen it. it involves four million government employees. >> you said malicious. give us a sense of how this threat -- which is actually happening right now. it's no longer a threat. it's being executed. compares to other threats that we're facing. >> well a lot of times you see it done criminal organizations out of russia. other countries do this to -- for credit card theft purposes. this is a long-term strategy to data mine, to get data theft in a large scale to be able to synthesize that in a way where they can compromise people down the road. and so it's a very different type of cyber attack that we're seeing.
3:47 am
so i think long term this say problem with china. they're getting very good at the game. >> what does your office do to safeguard your communications? >> well you know fortunately, no members of congress were breeched in this effort. we have fairly robust cyber defense mechanism. i passed the cybersecurity bill out of my committee and out of the house floor overwhelmingly and i think would safeguard the federal government against these types of attacks. >> it is through e-mails and things like that you're trying to safeguard? >> what they got was data security employment performance. they can get access to financials through this information. it is a fishing expedition of e-mails that will go into federal employees across the government. it says click here and once you click here they get into your system and they steal all of your information.
3:48 am
they take over your network system and that's what we're trying to prevent. my bill will go a long ways to do. that i know the senate would pass it. i know the white house supports it. >> michael mccaul thank you so much for being on this morning. >> thank you. >> up next we'll look at the winners and losers from this year's tony awards. and some of the fun that "morning joe" had on the red carpet before broadway's biggest nine. lewis was in fine form last night. we're back in a moment.

and it's looking like a beautiful monday morning. top of the hour. welcome back to "morning joe." joining the conversation anchor for the blaze tv amy hole am is back with us. good to have you onboard. we're going to begin this hour with a massive manhunt in new york state after two convicted killers used power tools like in a movie to break out of a maximum security state prison. hundreds are part of the search in upstate new york right now just 25 miles from the canadian border. investigators have developed more than 150 leads but officials have little to show for it so far. here's nbc's john yang with the latest details. >> reporter: more than 250 state and federal law enforcement officers scour the area around this eventualage in the mountains looking for clues that could lead them to the two convicted killers discovered missing at a 5:30 a.m. saturday bed check. >> we're leaving no stone
4:02 am
unturned. >> they could be anywhere. >> reporter: officials describe both men as very dangerous. david sweat was serving a life sentence with no parole for the 2002 killing of a sheriff's deputy near binghamton new york. 49-year-old richard matt was sentenced to 25 years to life for beating a man to death and dismembering him near buffalo in 1997. matt had escaped incarceration before. >> we have a lot of territory to cover. we're looking at each of them and their associates independently. >> reporter: authorities describe it an escape worthy of a hollywood screen play. they stuffed their bunks to make it look like they were sleeping. each used power tools to cut through a steel wall to reach a cat walk six stories high. they shimmied down to a tunnel below, broke through a brick wall and cut an entrance and an exit from a two foot wide pipe before breaking a steel lock on a man hole a block away from the prison wall. work officials say took a matter
4:03 am
of days to carry out. >> they left behind a racially offensive post it note reading "have a nice day." new york governor andrew cuomo retraced the escapee's path. >> we went back and pieced together what they did. it was elaborate. it was sophisticated. it encompassed drilling through steel walls and steel pipes. >> reporter: two big questions, where did the tools come from? how did the men know how to navigate the prison's maze of pipes and tunnels? since all the prison's tools have been accounted for, officials are speculating about contractor's tools. >> good morning, sir. >> reporter: in a village of about 4,000 people residents are are on guard. what was your reaction when you heard the news? >> oh, my god. this is this a drill or for real? it's very zary. >> this is my backyard. my door is looked for the first time in 30 years. >> reporter: a community on edge as a manhunt goes on.
4:04 am
>> $100,000 reward $50,000 each has been posted for information relating to their capture. we'll get a live update on the search from governor andrew cuomo later this hour on "morning joe." that's incredible. it was a big weekend in politics as seven republican hopefuls for president were in iowa. for senators joanie ernst and roast and ride fund-raiser and casey you were there on hand. who stood out? is there any standout? >> well that, was the challenge. so this was possibly the biggest event this summer in iowa. the straw poll has been losing a little bit of cache. you saw two candidates on harleys. you saw two chopping pork. you saw all of them in this crush of a crowd. it was really hard for anyone to stand out from the pack. >> reporter: hagsogs, pork, and plenty of red meat. >> i'd be tempted to ask hillary if she's ever ridden on a john deere tractor.
4:05 am
>> let me tell you, to hillary clinton, your definition of flat broke and mine are a little bit different. >> reporter: joanie ernst gathered seven contenders in iowa for the first annual roast & ride. >> marco rubio. >> huckabee. >> governor of texas. >> the challenge was standing out from the crowd. rick perry riding with veterans taking it all in. >> smefl grass being cut. smell of hay being bailed. living freedom riding free. being with a bunch of american heroes. >> reporter: wisconsin governor scott walker stopping to remember d day on the invasion 71st anniversary. >> let's remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. >> reporter: walk certificate only twoun ride to boon with ernst. >> you would rather be president of harley-davidson? >> it's be a lot easier job. >> reporter: also on stage saturday marco rubio, one of the first to help ernst in the senate campaign.
4:06 am
she offered him a ride on the bafk her bike because he's never been on one. >> my mom was always terrified of motorcycles. she used to trauma ties us about them. >> reporter: rubio also spoke to a packed ballroom at the holiday inn. he stayed there to save money and to show iowans he is just like them. >> miami dolphins man. >> yeah you won't find many dolphins fans in iowa. >> do you think iowa is a good place for the republican process to start? >> yes, absolutely. >> from a demographics perspective, it's not reflective of the whole country. >> well it's americans. it's every day americans who live in the middle part of the country and facing the same challenges and struggles as people everywhere else. >> there is an opening for rubio in iowa. there are a lot of people very eager to see him. on other hand it was scott walker's day. he was with the harley jacket boots, the crowd. >> yeah he has a story that connects as well. mike? >> casey, you indicated that you felt iowa lost a little cache. why would that be? what do you think? >> number one, because neither
4:07 am
the last two republican gop nominees actually won iowa. >> yeah. >> i mean there was a big story front page of the "des moines register" talking about how the caucus process has in some ways been impacted by the national republican party one lesson they feel they learned coming out of 20121 pushed our nominee to far. they have taken away the things that would have made iowa a big deal. the straw poll, there are a lot of people not competing in the straw poll. three republican debates in iowa in the process last time. the party sort of taken that over. i think we're looking at one this time around. so just a diminishing of the process. and you have so many candidates are we really going to have 10 to 15 people on the ballot? >> unprecedented. >> i mean all the things said are true. iowa will be a huge deal in the nomination. the winner of iowa may not be the nominee. but he or she will have a huge leg up on the competition because it's the first voting after all that's built up and
4:08 am
all the candidates are focused there. >> you know what i thought was really interesting was something libdcy gram said and mark i'd love your talk and amy as well. graham was asked about a conservative radio host saying republicans need to stand up to the burying of lines between male and female. take a look. >> if caitlyn jenner wants to be safe and have a prosperous economy, vote for me. i'm into addition. i haven't walked in her shoes. i don't have all the answers to the mysteries of life. i can only imagine the torment that bruce jenner went through. i hope she has found peace. i'm a pro-life traditional marriage kind of guy. but i'm run tok president of the united states. if caitlyn jenner wants to be a republican, she is welcome in my party. >> i'm impressed. i seldom impressed by lindsey gram. i just have different points of view from him. i like him very much.
4:09 am
but i thought that was -- halpern, is that a smart move giving his goals? >> proving you can win a general election is smart. and that tone -- the party needs to think that way. unlike gay marriage, same sex marriage where republicans are trying to figure out how hard to fight, they have been silent or spoke like lindsey graham which is encouraging. >> i mean it would have been enough to say, amy, she's welcome in the party. but i liked the point about the mysteries of life. there was a certain, i'm not going to judge in there. i think the far right could use more of. >> i thought his remarks were very artful. i did like that personal touch as well saying that, you know, i haven't walked in caitlyn jenner's shoes and wishing her well as she moves forward in her life's journey. i think that those are the words that all americans can understand really to sympathize with. and it's also in many ways where
4:10 am
the republican party is going. if you look at recent polling data, for example, a majority of republicans now are pro gay marriage, that's why it is becoming a contentious issue. >> but i double taked at the tv when i heard that. is that lindsey graham's voice? and i'm like that is lindsey graham. >> the next step is going to be okay, he is talking about the economy. there are still questions about discrimination against transgender people. >> right. what does this mean? >> i'd be interested to hear that. >> absolutely. all right. vice president joe biden is at his home in delaware this morning with no public schedule today, two days after his eldest son beau was laid to rest. biden was mourned by his family and a long list of dignitaries. president obama was nearly overcome by emotion several times during his eulogy for the 46-year-old former state attorney general and iraq veteran. >> it was a sign of an
4:11 am
incredible family who brushed away the possibility of privilege for the harder better reward of earning his own way. and what greater inheritance is there? what greater inheritance than to be part of a family that passes on the values of what it means to be a great parent. that passes on the values of what it meendzans to be a true citizen. that passes on the values of what it means to give back fully and freely without expecting anything in return? that's what our country was built on. beau made you want to be a better person. isn't that finally the measure
4:12 am
of a man? the way he lives, how he treats others? no matter what life may throw at him. we do not know how long we got here. we don't know when fate will intervene. we cannot discern god's plan. what we do know is that with every minute that we got, we can live our lives in a way that takes nothing for granted. >> you look at the story of this family that we know and love so much it really is that question that the president touched on which is what ut means to be a great parent. beau biden was a great son who became a great man.
4:13 am
and all the twists and turns in their life they faced in a way that you wished you could. i think we all struggle with being good enough parents let alone a great one. and you wrote actually mike a bit about that about him. there is this piece that you wrote. you talked about people who didn't even know them. and how connected they feel to the biden legacy. >> well you know it was on tv all weekend long and we cover it. the vice president of the united states former united states senator joe biden. but what you saw in that line mark was there as well you saw in that line of mourners thousands and thousands of them for ten hours, ten 1/2 hours waiting to get into that church. you saw simply put a father burying another of his children. this is the second of his children that he's had to bury.
4:14 am
and you saw a family standing there in unity and strength. their strength actually flowed into the marches, into people who were mourning who stood in line. it was an epic epic day. mark you were there all day as well. >> this is a small neighborhood and a small state that knows its politicians personally. had a woman come up to me in line and talk about how she calls the governor there by his first name. even if they don't know them well. and outpouring of support much as mike said captured so beautifully in the piece, the bidens were providing strength to all the thousands of people waiting to greet them rather than the other way around. make no mistake, the family really appreciated the support and including all the way up to the president and his support was really just in credibly touching and important because, you know every son, almost every family thinks their son is the greatest person in the world. and in the case of beau biden,
4:15 am
the family understood from the weekend lots of us thought that too. just an incredible guy. >> yeah. >> incredible loss for the state and country. >> i remember being so impressed with him just in every way. and the family rereally think of them still. we're going to turn now to something incredible that happened over the weekend that brought chills to many of us. it was the horse race that made history over the weekend. american pharoah becoming first triple crown winner in nearly four decades on saturday. my god, 37 years. winning the elusive belmont stakes by a 1/2and a half 5 1/2 lengths. here is the 3-year-old colt's race of a lifetime. >> reporter: american pharoah returned to churchill downs getting the royal treatment. after a heart pounding run into the record books. >> the 37-year wait is over! american pharoah is finally the one! american pharoah has won the triple crown! >> reporter: the 3-year-old

thoroughbred lived up to his name ruling the racetrack. an electric moment for the fans. when the horse was racing by here, what was going on inside you? >> adrenaline is pumping. i didn't think it was going to happen. but we witnessed history in the making. fantastic to see. >> reporter: a grueling mile and a half at the belmont, the toughest and final race of the triple crown longer than both the kentucky derby and the preakness preakness. >> i've never seen a horse run like that. i was in awe of him myself. >> reporter: the jockey said it was the perfect race. >> that is the best feeling i ever have. >> reporter: this champion now belongs to a rare club of only 12 triple crown winners. like the magnificent secretariat secretariat. his 1973 victory -- the stuff of hollywood movies. >> the 12th triple crown winner in racing history. >> reporter: american pharoah's gallop into greatness tramp

4:21 am
administrative leave this morning after video surfaced of him wrestling a 14-year-old girl in a bikini to the ground at one point drawing his gun while he and other cops were breaking up a pool party. 12 officers arrived on the keen after reports of fighting at the party and the police chief sat said upon arrival the officers encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands. this video posted to youtube shows the officer wrestling a girl to the ground and at one point pulling his gun on other attendees but don't show events leading up to the encounter. >> i don't care. right there. he should not be a police officer. >> still the mayor of mckinney issued a statement saying he's disturbed and concerned by the incident and the actions depicting in the video and the police chief says there will be an investigation. naacp president also issued a statement that reads in part
4:22 am
the excessive force on an unarmed 14-year-old girl clad only in a bikini by an officer wearing a uniform and a gun was particularly troubling. these teens appeared to be simply attending a pool party and deserve respectful treatment under the law. i don't know what she was saying or doing and it just doesn't matter. >> no. >> she's 14. she is only in a bikini. clearly, he can observe she's unarmed. and for a grown man to be throwing down a 14-year-old bikini clad girl to me is borderline assault. i mean just so ugly to watch. >> that is just one element of it. the other element is i don't know if we'll go into the clip at the exact moment but he's got her on the ground. someone else approaches him. watch him whip out his gun. >> yeah. that's the element right there. take the badge. take the shield take the weapon away from that guy. >> oh, my god.

stunned. i said why didn't you ever tell anybody? i mean he was your teacher. why didn't you ever tell anybodihe? just looked at me and said who is ever going to believe me? >> as nbc's gabe gutierrez reports, some of his former students and wrestlers are speaking out about the allegations. >> did you ever have any indication that any abuse was going on? >> none whatsoever. >> vic you goer graduated from yorkville high in 1975. hastert had been his wrestling coach and scout leader. >> until more comes out, then i'm still going to believe he's a good person. >> reporter: mike mcdade graduated in 1970 a classmate of hastert's alleged victim the late steve rhinebolt who was a student equipment manager for the yorkville high wrestling team but mcdade said he never noticed anything suspicious. >> as a friend as a teacher and a friend and there is no way.
4:25 am
>> reporter: another friend and classmate who asked us to conceal his identity says rhinebolt confided in him back in 1974 that he had sexual encounters with hastert years earlier while in high school. >> he said well we do things sexually. you know we would start with a massage. >> hastert is charged with trying to evade federal banking requirements and lying to the fbi. coming up how will the results of turkey's elections affect the united states' efforts to defeat islamic state militants? and how could inmates break out of a prison with power tools without anyone hearing or seeing it. we'll have more coming up on "morning joe."

4:30 am
enough to be effective everywhere. that takes a long effort building a coalition, to build a team of teams as i'd say. >> that was retired general stanley mcchrystal who says the u.s. must look at the larger picture in the fight against isis. meanwhile in turkey the president's party has lost its majority in parliament for the first time in more than a decade. how will this affect the united states effort to defeat the islamic state? joining us now, nbc news foreign correspondent and foreign policy analyst and retired air force pilot who spoke with the turkish ambassador to the u.s. to get context around the election results. can you give us just a little bit of a sense of what turkey has contributed and has not contributed to the fight against isis? >> well -- >> at least from the u.s. per inspect sniff. >> sure. one thing that it has not done is to allow coalition aircraft to come into turkey and use those bases for the direct
4:31 am
strikes on the islamic state if iraq and syria. that's a big key component. i think more broadly, the ambassador made it very clear yesterday about where turkey's foreign policy interests lie. it's not with them it's with a national coalition that they regard as a representation of the syrian people. and it's also with still regarding the pkk which is the kurdistan worker's party has this terrorist group. i think the dynamics now, the big dynamic from yesterday's election is all about the people's democratic party which is pro kurdish, who gain more than 10% yesterday who now represention in the government. i think moving forward. >> i think it's safe to say there have been concerns that we're not getting enough support if turkey or not enough of a connection. how do these election results change the dynamic between the united states and turkey and the fight against isis? >> it's going to change the dynamics of turk qui's politics. that may have an impact on the coalition that's formed into terms of ruling the country and
4:32 am
perhaps the foreign poll sichlt one thing that turkey is trying to do is try to get u.s. involved in committing to toppling the side. that has been a major point of difference between turkey and the united states. sushgy says that we are willing to put more to the fi against isis so long as the u.s. commits to toppling assad. the u.s. has not done that. but now turkey inside turkey, the politics are changing shifting. they're going to have to form a coalition. and in doing so may have to change a little bit of thifreir foreign policy vis-a-vis the kurds and perhaps even vis-a-vis syria and neighboring countries. the biggest issue is they're not getting enough international support. that's an argument they make over and over. they absorb so many of the refugees from syria and they're not getting the support they need. >> mike you referenced one of the largest bases that we have in that area of the world. could you explain to people who aren't familiar with the operations, the air operations tactical and strategic how much more convenient and how much
4:33 am
better for the effort against isis it would be if we were allowed to fly out of the base into sear yachlt. >> that's a great question mike. it's all about geographic disposition. and what is being used at the moment is a concept called dynamic targeting. it fuses time sensitive intelligence with the ability to use precision munitions. does it that to prevent collateral. what that means is that the aircraft have to get airborne and they have to hold in a close air support stack. so they get airborne and then hold there and when they get this dynamic -- this time sensitive intelligence they go and prosecute the target which is why we're hearing all the numbers being put out about why there are 14,000 planes but only 6,000 strikes. they will get airborne but they won't make a strike unless you have the intelligence. >> mark? >> one more on the election. seems like the voters were sending a signal they want a
4:34 am
more pluralistic government more tolerant of freedom of speech freedom of assembly. will the now government take that message and act on it? >> they have to in terms of the coalition of the government. they don't have a majority. they're going to have to form a coalition. who they form a coalition with is going to shape the internal politics and dynamics of turkey. if they decide to reach out to the more right-wing ones you're going to see a shift of the turkish politics more into the centrist as opposed to being islamist. if they decide to go different route and they can't form a coalition, they're going to have early elections. that's going to bolster the opposition more. this is the first time as you were saying the party has lost the majority and some of the hdp party, the people's democratic party, they've now had an openly gay candidate. they brought in secular turks. they brought in the most number of women running on the ballot for their party. the dynamics are chaging. what happens inside turkey has implications across the region for political islam. we've seen that in the past in terms of the rise of other parties.
4:35 am
question see it again with the shift. >> all right. thank you very much gentlemen. up next it's been 50 hours since two inmates broke out of a new york prison using power tools. are authorities any closer to finding them? we're going to ask new york governor andrew cuomo. he's on "morning joe" next. ♪ can a business have a mind? a subconscious. a knack for predicting the future. reflexes faster than the speed of thought. can a business have a spirit? can a business have a soul? can a business be...alive?

talk with us about your retirement today. all right. back for the manhunt underway in new york state after two convicted killers broke out of a maximum security state prison hundreds are part of the search in upstate new york just 25 miles from the canadian border. joining us from new york nbc news national correspondent. some are suggesting they had help from the inside. i can't imagine they didn't have some sort of help. even just the engineering of the actual escape seems too complicated for them to be able to figure out from inside their cell. >> that's right. that's the conclusion many
4:39 am
people here are drawing because the escape was so elaborate. as a matter of fact, to give you scope on just how big this manhunt is it stretches across canada u.s., even going down into mexico. the inmates, as you eluded to using power tools to actually break out of prison. investigators say despite 150 tips they are still no closer to finding those suspects. >> reporter: overnight eastern into the morning, the desperate around the clock manhunt for two killers. >> we're leaving no stone unturned. they could be anywhere. >> reporter: 250 heavily armed officers with canines combing the woods searching cemeteries and schools for convicts david sweat and richdard matt. sweat was serving life after shooting a sheriff's deputy 22 times. matt serving 25 years to life for kidnapping beating, killing and dismembering his boss. they were discovered missing early saturday morning, breaking out of prison with power tools.
4:40 am
>> we did not recover sophisticated cutting tools. we are still looking for those tools. >> reporter: the escape from this maximum security facility in upstate new york 25 miles from canada retraced by new york governor andrew cuomo who called it elaborate and sophisticated. he says the prisoners inside by side cells stuffed their bunks with clothes to avoid detection, they cut walls in behind their beds and crawled on to this cat walk six stories up broke through a brick wall two feet thick, cutting holes into and out of a 24 inch steam pipe shimmying beneath the prison wall then breaking out of a man hole more than a block away. they left behind a post it note with a racist image reading have a nice day. when you look at how it was done, it was extraordinary. >> reporter: with the governor saying the inmates must have been heard the tiny town is now
4:41 am
a fortress. >> the whole community is up side down right now. >> this morning the hunt for two desperate men who have killed before and could do it again. this rural area is dotted with abandoned barns and a norforested area. no luck so far. the men likely got help from the inside and outside. one of the inmates, richard matt escaped from prison back in 1986. the governor calls this a crisis. back to you. >> thank you very much miguel. joining us from washington former fbi profiler and hostage negotiator now an nbc news law enforcement analyst clinlt van zandt. so many questions, clint. >> so many. >> i'm trying to figure out -- there's got to be a huge concern that there's a lot of help happening here on the inside. >> well i think they're going to find out it's both ways. and that's the challenge right now. number one, how do you use power
4:42 am
tools? how do you get your hands on power tools? and then how do you keep them in your cell and use them and spend days, maybe weeks cutting your way through? you know at the very least someone should hear these sounds. but realize the inmates are probably sitting in there, many of them may be aware of what was going on and, of course they're cheering for the idea that two people would escape. but somebody on the inside likely is a governor suggest had to provide those tools and had to turn a deaf ear to the activities of these two men when they were trying to get out and realize likely on the other side someone was trying to help them get away. once they got out -- a prison escape is two parts. number one, you have to get out. number two, you have to get away. so far, they've been able to do both. >> they've done both. and, mike it's -- not just help from the inside in term of the power tools and not hearing the use of them but engineering the
4:43 am
escape. shimmying through that tunnel and how would they even know about the makeup of the prison so that they could do that and come out of a man hole? >> well as clint just referenced, they obviously had some internal counsel. >> some? >> about the logistics involved. there is a social structure in prison. again, as clint just referenced i mean there's numerous inmates who probably knew what was going on and knew what they were doing. first of all, they're never going to reveal it because they'll die in prison for being a rat as they say. but the most important element, not the most important, the most interesting element to me is the logistics of their escape. >> i know. >> how did they know how to get far enough away from the walls of the prison to the man hole cover itself? that to me sendlessly fascinating. >> and well let's actually bring in some questions to governor andrew cuomo. joining us from albany andrew cuomo. governor, 50 hours later, thanks
4:44 am
for being on the show. you are still hopeful that men will be found? >> i am hopeful and we're doing everything we can. that's the first order of business. these are really dangerous actors. excuse me. they're killers, murderers. and i'm sure they're not going to want to go back. one of these people killed a deputy sheriff. one of them killed an employer and dismembered him. so these are really bad actors. we offered a $100,000 reward which the state has not done before. we have a tip line 1-800-give-tip. they could be anywhere in the country by now. kun of the individuals had experience in mexico. they could be headed down south. the prison is 25 miles from canada. they could be headed that way. so we're covering all bases. we also have a very intensive search still in that area. there's a chance they didn't have transportation or they haven't acquired an automobile. so we're doing a house-to-house
4:45 am
search in the immediate area. but we're also because there is so much time that has gone on, thinking they may now be out of the area. >> what kind of contact these two escapees had with people on the outside in the weeks leading up to their escape? >> we don't know mark. short answer. what communication they had on the outside or what they arranged on the outside. we do know that given the sophistication of the operation and what they pulled off that at a minimum they had to have equipment that they shouldn't have had access to. and we want to know how they got that equipment. you know in a prison, there are three types of employees. you have the correction guards themselves. you have civilian employees. and then you have private contractors, many construction contractors, especially in this prison. it's a very old prison.
4:46 am
they're doing a lot of construction work. so you have various crews of construction workers. and we want to know where they got the equipment and we're interviewing hundreds of contractors and civilian employees which i would be shocked if a correction officer was involved. but someone assisted them at least with equipment because you're talking about cutting through steel. the back plate of the cell was more than a quarter inch steel. you need a minimum of hacksaw blades to get through that. you're then in a cat walk. they had to go hundreds of yards. they went through a brick wall and then cut into a steam pipe i don't know if you have the pictures. but it was about a 24 inch steam pipe which they cut into shimmied through this 24 inch
4:47 am
steam pipe cut another hole from inside the pipe to exit into another series of tunnels to get to a man hole cover. the man hole cover is chained and pad locked from the inside. they cut that chain and they cut that pad lock. so at a minimum, minimum, they needed equipment that they shouldn't have had access to. even if they could figure out the maze of tunnels on their own, which depending on who you talk to there are differences of opinion that with some common sense you could figure out which tunnel was leading out of the prison because the power station was on the other side of the wall. but at least they needed equipment to pull this off and it was not done in one night or two nights in my opinion. this was multiple nights. they had put dummies in the bed
4:48 am
like the shawshank redemption. every two hours the guard goes by, makes sure there is somebody in the bed. they don't wake up the person every two hours because that would obviously be problematic for other reasons. but my speculation with doing a full investigation and we'll know, but my speculation is those dummies deceived the guards on several nights because they could not have done this in one day. >> oh, my god. mike? >> governor we now know from listening to you that the two escapees, their principal occupation is getting out of prison. and they worked at it for quite some time. can you tell us in terms of other people's occupations, how many state and federal agencies are now engaged in the pursuit of these two murderers? >> mike first, you have to remember this prison clinton correctional, it is referred to dana mora that, is the location
4:49 am
of it. probably the toughest prison we have in the system or certainly one of the toughest. and 25 miles from the canada border. it really is for the hardened criminals. so this is also the first escape from this prison the maximum security portion of this prison since 1865 the first escape. we want to make sure it's the last. we have literally hundreds of law enforcement officers. we have the state police. we have the department of corrections, the federal marshals are now involved. we have the fbi involved. we're working with local police as well as neighboring states because given the severity of these two escapees we've done everything we can plus offering a reward which is an unusual step for the state. but something that i think is
4:50 am
important because as you know mike, the more time goes on the less likely we find them and that they're out of area. so these first few days are really a precious opportunity, so we're doing everything we can. >> governor andrew cuomo, thank you very much for coming on. we'll be following the sory. our thanking to clint van zandt as well. n your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do, drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement, you'd get your whole car back. i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels. smart. with liberty mutual new car replacement, we'll replace the full value of your car. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance.

good morning, everyone. welcome to "morning joe," the top of the hour. what a weekend we had. we have mark halpern, casey hunt mike barnicle along with willie and me this morning. willie. >> yes, ma'am. >> did you think it was going to happen with american pharoah? >> i have evidence i thought it was going to happen. >> come on. you did not. >> the big winner. that's the framer. not the real bet.
5:01 am
that's the one you frame. that's the $2 bet at the belmont on american pharoah to win. >> that was such a race. >> 40 cents? >> there were other bets placed that were perhaps more lucrative. it was incredible. truly incredible. you heard going in this horse might be different than the other ones. >> didn't you feel like we have heard this before? it's going to be a letdown? >> yes, and you're waiting right here because this is usually where it falls apart, on the back stretch coming down the homestretch for the horse to fall behind. look how strong american pharoah is widening the lead as he goes, and an incredible story. first time since 1978. >> 37 years. >> will it happen? and it finally happened saturday. >> i had chills. that was an incredible moment. i always kind of feel bad about horse racing but when they're in the full gallop there's nothing more beautiful. >> probably the greatest triple crown winner since 1967.
5:02 am
>> all right. that wasn't the only thing that happened this weekend. we run the gamut. last night, i went to the tonys. mark went to the tonys. >> you went? >> of course. never miss it. >> there until the end. first, the new hosts, larry david was there, and of course i gave him a mint because, you know -- >> did he need one? >> you never know. he carries around the drops. he met my daughter. she said, he's the same person. he's larry david. i said correct. it was fun. i had an awkward moment with bradley cooper. very awkward. >> captured on video? >> you're not going to leave us hanging. >> i was introduceing my daughter, and i was poking him, and he kept going and kind of gave a scoff. i was like oh, wait a minute. and everyone was kind of looking at me like that's really sad.
5:03 am
she's running after bradley cooper. i'm not, i just want to -- >> i guarantee he didn't know it was you. >> he came back. i said amelia please i'm not like a weirdo running after movie stars. it's not even me. >> i was disappointed skylight did not win more than it did win. >> an interesting mix of winners. >> it was, actually. >> i loved kelley o'hara's acceptance speech, the king and i. >> highlight of the night. >> she was lovely. she's been nominated plenty of times. she finally won. >> her speech was so human. it was so full of joy and charm and ridiculousness and dancing. it was really very very lovely night. what did you think of the hosts really quick? >> they were great. cute together. very cute together. >> then of course the most momentous, important heartwrenching moment of the weekend is the funeral for beau
5:04 am
biden. vice president joe biden at his home in delaware this morning with no public schedule today, two days after his eldest son beau was laid to rest. bidens waw mourned by his family and dignitaryiesdignitaries. president obama was nearly overcome several times in his yuleeulogy at the funeral. >> it was a sign of an incredible family who brushed away the possibility of privilege for the harder better reward of earning his own way. and what greater inheritance is there? what greater inheritance than to be part of a family that passes on the values of what it means to be a great parent. that passes on the values of what it means to be a true citizen. that passes on the values of what it means to give back fully
5:05 am
and freely. without expecting anything in return. that's what our country was built on. men like beau. he made you want to be a better person. isn't that finally the measure of a man? the way he lives, how he treats others, no matter what life may throw at him. we do not know how long we've got here. we don't know when fate will intervene. we cannot discern god's plan.
5:06 am
what we do know is that with every minute that we've got, we can live our lives in a way that takes nothing for granted. >> you know there were world leaders there, rock stars there. but that's not what it was about, really. and mike you wrote a piece, i think, that really crystallizes that. politicians often have a shell that they develop around their persona, sometimes they need it to protect themselves or sometimes it's what they have to sort of push an image. and somehow, the biden family always remained a kind of true to their humanity. and what you write, mike here in the daily beast at son's wake, joe biden is one of us, really crystallizes it. agnesand her sister stood next in line. after six and a half hours, they quietly summoned all their strength to offer their support and sorrow for a loss that seemed nearly unbearable to
5:07 am
them. joe biden held their hand hugged them both thanks them for coming and kissed them on the cheek. how long have you known the vice president, she was asked? i don't know him, she answered. this was the first time i met him. and you stood in line all this time, i said to her? how come? because i love who he is she said. he's a family man who knows what it's like to lose something you lost in life. i always loved him. he's one of us. that's the legacy really of beau biden, joe biden, the family. >> mark was there on friday for the wake as well mika and i would tell you the line was epic. it was as finely drawn portrait of america as you're going to see. i'm not talking about the people rushing in the front door of the church. i'm talking about the people who stood for 11 hours, and the vice president and his family stood at the front of the alter for 11

hours. and shook every last hand but the people in line many of them did not know the vice president. they knew of him, they had encountered him in wilmington or around delaware or wherever but they did not know him. they stood there out of respect and admiration i think, for the family. a unique family. >> i have never seen people wait in line for five hour ss so happily and so peacefully because it's a small state, and they call their politicians by their first name there. what people in delaware saw in beau biden is what the people of the world saw in him and the family so strong all weekend in standing and waiting and greeting everybody. and for president obama to come and to give i think one of the best eulogies i have ever heard and for him to be emotional in public is again, what kind of a person beau biden was and what an incredible family it is. >> one of the things we do in this business is cover politics very well. we cover it intensity. casey just got back from texas
5:09 am
and iowa. we'll give you every anecdote that happens on a campaign trail, but what we don't do and sometimes it's almost impossible to do is cover and reflect and report on the relationships that people have in politics. and the relationship between the president of the united states and the vice president of the united states is truly unique. it is one -- it's a bond of friendship as strong as i know of. not just in politics but two people in life. >> yeah. the president said that his family considers themselves part of the biden family and the biden family all weekend, just so strong, and there for their state and the country, and i think the outpouring was well deserved and fantastic, but a really sad and touching weekend. >> couple other quick things i noticed. i was watching it on c-span where they just had the camera set up no talking. they just watched the mourners
5:10 am
come through. the other side was the way joe biden handled it as if he were there for the people coming to mourn. people coming through in wheelchairs, he's on the knee eye to eye, kissing their hand. i thought, my gosh in the moment of the worst grief imaginable he's there for all of these other people. it was just incredible to watch. >> why your writing came off -- your piece was being passed around, members of the white house, people who work in the administration said they were bawling. we all have struggles with our kids and want the best for them and can't imagine losing them. and yet, he's somehow, this family, joe biden especially beau biden, a symbol of how to love your children and how to let go too, which is hard to watch but wow. did they do it beautifully and do they still. >> his other kids speeches were beautiful. hunter's particularly broke your heart when he talked about after the car accident. beau holding his hand and saying
5:11 am
i love you, i love you. hang in there. then the roles were reversed when he was in the hospital holding his hand for his last breath. >> humanity. well while we're on the topic of politicians, though it be someone to look at beau's legacy especially in terms of when we're look aththe hopefuls for 2016 seven republican hopefuls for president were in iowa this weekend. joni ernst inaugural roast and ride fund-raiser, and casey, you were there. did anybody stand out from the pack? >> it's hard to say comparing to what we talked about? >> a little difficult. i will say i have been to a number of these cattle calls now. i think we're beginning to combine them. give us something new. no but i think there were two candidates who rode in on motorcycles. the rest were left fighting with each other to try to stand out
5:12 am
from the pack. >> hogs pork and plenty of red meat. >> i really would be tempted on that general election debate stage to ask hillary if she's ever ridden on a john deere tractor. >> let me tell you, your definition of flat broke and mine are a little different. >> joni ernst gathered seven presidential condenders in boon iowa, on saturday for her first annual roasting ride eight months before the caucuses. >> huckabee. >> rick perry, riding with veterans, taking it all in. >> the smell of gas being cut, hay hay. >> being with a bunch of american heroes. >> wisconsin governor scott walker stopping to remember d-day, on the invasion's 71st anniversary. >> let's remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. >> walker was the only one to ride to boone withernest.
5:13 am
>> still hearth be president of harley davidson. >> a much easier job, but i don't think i have a shot at that. >> also on stage, marco rubio, one of the first to help earnest in her senate campaign. she offered him a ride because he's never been on one. >> my mom was terrified of them. >> rubio spoke to a packed ballroom at the holiday in. he stayed there to save money and to show them he's just like them. >> you won't find many miami dolphins fans in iowa. >> you think this is a good place to start? >> absolutely. >> from a demographics perspective, it's not reflektive of the country. >> it's everyday americans who live in country, facing the same struggles and challenges. >> rubio drew a lot of attention at the roast and ride. it's clear there seems to be an opening for him. there are a lot of people who were interested to hear from
5:14 am
him. >> mark, you're probably following all this. any stand-outs? >> walker's got a big edge in iowa. you look at the national polls and everybody is jumbled and tied up and no clear leader in new hampshire or south carolina. walker is strong there. but as you saw in the piece, they all think they can make their mark in iowa. even marco rubio, young guy, hasn't spent much time there, but drew big crowds. >> he was one of the first people to help joni ernst in her senate campaign in 2014. he's done a lot behind the scenes. >> there was a big piece in the "new york times" about speeding tickets. is it an issue? >> well, i think they're starting to see the knives come out for rubio. >> marco rubio. >> yes, that's a sign of his strength. i asked him whether or not he thinks the tickets should matter. >> hmm. >> i have to ask you, there was a sometimes report about your collection of speeding tickets. do you have a lead foot.
5:15 am
>> they weren't speeding tickets alone. i'll let people read into it what they want. it is what it is. i know when you run for president, that's going to happen. people are going to look at every aspect of your life. being from miami where you drive everywhere having four tickets in 17 years is not bad, but i don't like red light cameras. >> doesn't he know -- four tickets in 17 years? >> i think there are some opponents of marco rubio who feels he was handed a gift with this "new york times" story, because i think most people can identify with having the occasional ticket and getting busted by a red light camera. >> this past weekend was barbara bush's birthday so jeb bush wasn't there, but was he there unany sense? >> they had one staffer who was wandering around basically asking attendees if they had
5:16 am
questions about jeb bush. but he was pretty absent. the rubio event i went to he brought 100-plus people out to ames, iowa, about 100 people showed up, and those are probably larger crowds than the smaller bush events i covered in iowa. i think he's pretty mia out there. i thought ted cruz skipping the event was a little interesting. i thought that was probably a missed opportunity for him. if anything this was a crowd he really could have potentially fired up. >> willie. >> you're like the right hand of all the candidates. here comes casey. >> with her innocent questions. >> a manhunt under way in the state of new york after two convicted killers used power tools to break out of a maximum security state prison up near the canadian border. hundreds are joining the search now in upstate new york just 25 miles from the border. investigators have developed more than 150 leads, but officials have little to show for it so far.
5:17 am
john yang has a report. >> more than 250 state and federal law enforcement officers scour the area around this village in the adirondack mountains looking for clues that could lead them to the two convicted killers discovered missing at a 5:30 a.m. saturday bed check. >> we're leaving no stone unturned. they could be anywhere. >> officials describe both men as very dangerous. david sweat, 35 was serving a live sentence with no parole for the 2002 killing of a sheriff's deputy. 49-year-old richard matt was sentenced to 25 years to life for beating a man to death and dismembering him in buffalo in 1997. matt had escaped incarceration before. >> we have a lot of territory to cover. we're looking at each of them and their associates independently. >> authorities described an escape worthy of a hollywood screen play. they stuffed their bunks to make it look like they were sleeping.

from separate cells each used power tools to cut through a steel wall. they shimmied down to a tunnel below, broke through a brick wall, and cut an entrance and an exit from a two-foot-wide pipe before breaking a steel lock on a manhole a block away from the prison wall. work officials say took a matter of days to carry out. they left behind a racially offensive post-it note reading, have a nice day. andrew cuomo retraced the escapees' path. >> we went back and pieced together what they did. it was elaborate. it was sophisticated. it encompassed drilling through steel walls and steel pipes. >> two big questions, where did the tools come from and how did the men know how to navigate the prison's pipes and tunnels? since all the prison's tools have been accounted for, they're speculating about contractors
5:19 am
tools. in dannemora, a village of about 4,000 people, residents are on guard. what was your reaction? >> oh, my god. is this a drill or is this for real? it's very scary. this is my backyard. >> i had my doors locked first time in 30 years. >> a community on edge as a manhunt goes on. >> a $100,000 reward $50,000 apieceeesiece has been posted for information relating to their capture. >> cindy levy is here with glamour magazine' latest issue including a piece on why there aren't more republican women on capitol hill. we'll ask one of them as mimi walters joins the table. also tim kaine is standing by. why he's finding few partners to vote on a declaration of war against isis. out of 42 vehicles based on 6 different criteria, why did a panel of 11 automotive experts

5:25 am
schnitzal yesterday, is the relationship between obama and merkel. the leader of the free world, the most powerful woman in the world. they know they need eacheter. they're pragmatic politicians in that way, although their personal relationship isn't particularly warm certainly the president wants her help in dealing with russia. and persona nongrata vladimir putin, who two years in a row has been told you're not welcome here. so we'll watch for all of those things for the president holds a news conference later on this morning. >> chris jansing in the alps thank you very much. let's look at the morning papers from nbcnews.com. turkey's ruling islamist party has been stripped of its parliamentary majority. they won about 41% of the vote in sunday's election giving the party an estimated 258 seats, 18 shy of the minimum required to rule alone.

5:31 am
31 past the hour. joining us from richmond virginia, senator tim kaine. good to have you onboard, especially a member of the armed services committee. we have questions for you. we'll start with isis. mike has the first one. >> senator, in this undeclared war against isis where do you stand in terms of declaring war or formalizing the fight that we are having with so many tribes in the middle east? >> mike, we have to do it. today is the tenth mijt anniversary of the war against isis. it started on august 8th about $2.5 billion, 3500 bombing runs. we lost american troops in this
5:32 am
operation. our hostages have been beheaded. it's absolutely shameful that congress hasn't done an authorization for use of military force. i introduced one in september that got a vote in the foreign relations committee in december but it then died on the floor. later today, because of the tenth month anniversary, senator flake from arizona and i are going to reintroduce an authorization trying to make it bipartisan so congress will finally do its job. >> what difference would it make? >> here's the difference it makes. right now, if you're isil you have no evidence none that congress cares about you at all. if you're an ally of the united states, you have no evidence add all that congress cares about the battle against isil but especially if you're one of the 3500 american troops who are deployed thousands of miles from their home in this theater of war, risking your lives every day, you have no evidence that congress cares about this at all. it is constitutionally required for congress to do this. and that's for a reason. we shouldn't be risking our
5:33 am
troops' lives unless we're willing to have the debate shape the mission, give the president authority, and then our troops know that they have us behind them. if we'reinate willing to do that, we shouldn't ask them to risk their lives. >> what would be the cause for war? what would be the cause that would cause us to formally declare war and reoccupy for a period of time or reinvade for a period of time another middle eastern country? >> well, isil has declared war against us and isil is killing americans, and isil poses an immediate threat and also a long termthet threat to the security of the region. i don't view this as one where we should be reoccupying. i think that would be a mistake. the region has to stand up against its own terrorist threat. and if they do then we should be supporting them with bombing campaign campaigns, for example, such as we're doing today, and maybe additional efforts that can help them succeed. we can't police a region that
5:34 am
won't police itself. isil does pose a threat to the united states. we have already lost lives in the mission and we will lose more. >> mark halpern. >> i know the congressional division has in large part accounts for the fact there isn't the authorization you would like but what do you say about the president? should he be more energetic? >> i hope the white house would lean in more. that was really late when they sent it to us in february. now it's been four months since the white house sent us the authorization, and congress has done nothing. it's time for us to act. >> senator, with all due respect, you said they would hope they would lean in more. shouldn't the commander in chief be demanding action from congress? >> well mark there is a debate. the executive says that the existing 2001 authorization gives them the authority to
5:35 am
conduct this military operation. i strongly disagree with that but there is some legal back and forth over whether the earlier authorization is sufficient. but when the president sent the authorization over in february, he said regardless of the legal legalease, this is a war that's going to go on for a while. for four months we have done nothing. now it is our time to act. >> based on your accurate chronology of the history, doesn't it lead you to say that the president should be demanding because of the troops because of the signal it will send of unity, shouldn't the president be demanding congress put aside other business and deal with this now? >> it is my hope that they will. i will say i have been talking to the white house about the effort. senator flake and i are putting in a bipartisan draft authorization today, and the white house is very much encouraging us to do that. they're not indifferent to it. in fact as i talk to officials,
5:36 am
national security officials in the white house, they're frequently asking what's going on on the authorization? we sent it to you in february. will you act? obviously, the foreign relations committee just took a very tough issue, what congress should do in an ultimate iran deal and turned it from a partisanish tew ishsue to a bipartisan outsome. even though the issue is tough, if we start the discussion we can find a path to put support behind our troops. >> i want to ask you about hillary clinton and politics. how do you think her campaign is going? there's critiques she's not taking questions and maybe concern that could pile up and hit her hard later when she should be getting roughed up and more nimble on the trail. >> i like the way that the campaign is starting. i think this going to voters in smaller settings and getting an occasional large policy speech. last week i thought she gave a superb speech at texas southern
5:37 am
about the massive pattern of efforts -- >> i get that but you know what i'm asking. >> i am. >> are you concerned at all she's putting off the hard questions that will be asked at some point, instead of getting -- >> every campaign has its pluses and minuses. there have been external stories about things like the foundation, those have been challenging, but the campaign itself, i think they're doing a good job. >> you served alongside martin onally and jim webb in the senate. either of those guys able to give her a good run for her money to make her better or to be better? and mieth it be tim kaine. >> i start with bernie sanders right now. i know jim webb very well deep admirer, i'm a friend of martin onallys. >> you know what i'm asking. >> the democrats, we're notoriously unruly. there's going to be a competition here and somebody else may get in. who knows.
5:38 am
there will be competition, and secretary clinton, what she showed in 2008 she actually did her best work in the campaign when the times were toughest. that was my view of the '08 campaign. so look, there's going to be competition, but she's the strong favorite for a reason. i support her. i think she's going to be the best president. >> somebody is mentioning you as vice president. we'll see if that happens. >> congress has to be fixed. i have a big job. >> good to see you. thank you very much. >> washington post journalist jason rezaien who has been jailed in iran for almost a year returned to a courtroom in tehran today. he is believed to have defended himself directly in his second closed door session on espionage charges. no details yet on what he said have emerged and his lawyer is forbidden to discuss what happened. his american mother traveled to iran for a second time and was not allowed to see him.
5:39 am
and all i can hope is that whatever discussions are going on with iran that this and the two other hostages involved are part of these conversations. >> it's incredible what is happening to that reporter from the "washington post" at the same time we're -- >> what is a negotiation if there's this elephant in the room that they're not talking about? let's hope that they are. >> even the family though doesn't want the thinks linked because they don't want to be hostage to the nuclear negotiations. >> prayers for that family and for him. >> is there a gender gap on capitol hill when it comes to political parties? that story and more when "morning joe" comes back with cindy levy.

5:43 am
california. the liaison between freshman members of the house and the party leadership and a mother of four. there's really no difference in those two roles. makes you better though. great to have you on. first of all, what do you like on the republican field so far? i know you haven't endorsed anyone yet. >> i'm still watching. >> couple names. >> we have a lot of good candidates, and i'm just sort of watching the process to see how it all works out. >> there's not one, two, three, five even that stand out? >> i'm just watching. >> not going there. >> i'm a good politician. i'm not going to answer that question. >> what do you think the most pressing issue facing lawmakers on capitol hill that they're not attacking that they should be. >> currently, what we are working on is trade promotion authority. that issue we expect to take up by the end of the mukt. what trade promotion authority is really the framework of giving the president the
5:44 am
opportunity to negotiation trade agreements with other countries. it's very very important that we pass this piece of legislation. it's bipartisan. 1 in 5 jobs in mark are created because of free trade. if america doesn't take the lead on trade, china's going to. and i want american to set the standards and take the lead. >> okay. glamer magazine has been putting more and more politics into the issues. i love it. you look at different angles on it. i'm in step into her office. that's like a regular. >> it is. a column i do every month, interviewing women with great careers about their strategies. >> thank you for doing that. we're also looking at whether or not women's magazines lean left. a recent story claimed republicans are worryied women's magazines are all in the tank for hillary clinton. it's sort of the barack obama story where everybody was accused of being in the tank for
5:45 am
him. some might have been. >> i think this is overblown. listen, if republicans are concerned that women's magazines are in the tank for hillary and they want to tell their stories to our millions and millions of readers, that's fantastic and great and exactly what they should be do. i think it's a misconception at least at "glamour." we have covered michelle obama and hillary clinton because over the last seven years they have been the most prominent women in the political sphere. that having been said we also covered cathy mcmoer srris rodgers and these incredible wimmage taking stage. you're one of them. if you look at young women's beliefs, both parties should be courting.
5:46 am
some identify as independent. they're not that engaged in washington or the political system and putting on the democrat or republican badge right now. so they are there to be courted and approached and i think any politician in either party would be really smart to share where he or she stands on their issues. >> maybe the bottom line is there aren't as many of you republican women. the numbers are far higher on the democratic side. >> yes, much higher percentage of democrats in congress are female than republicans. >> we have to do a better job of getting more republican women elected. i look at it as somebody who is a member of congress who is the only female out of the republican delegation from california. that it's my job to help mentor other women and bring them up through the ranks. that is something that we have to do a much better job on the republican side. >> how many kids -- you have four kids? >> i do, i have two girls, two
5:47 am
boys. >> what are their ags? >> the oldest is 23 and the youngest is 19. >> it's not a commuter friendly district. how do you handle it? >> fortunately, my children are in college now. i have three in college and my oldest just graduated. this comes at a good time for me because i spend a lot of time on the east coast. all of the kids are in college on the east coast. >> california republican and you're responsible for a state rebuilding, what are the hallmarks, the building marks of bringing the california republican party back? >> we have to have a strong state party, first of all. what we have done is brought in a new party chairman and we're starting to build from the grass roots level and getting involved in the local races. most people don't know this but there are more republicans elected at the local level in california than there are democrats. we have a great bench that we can start with. we just need to get them to that
5:48 am
next level. >> of course congress woman mimi walters thank you for being on the show. cindy stay with us. i loved stepping into your office. it's very excited. your office is beautiful. up next their horse raced into the record books, but the zayats also missed out on their chance -- almost missed out. they did not. we watched them win and they're here now. that story is next. >> fantastic. yes! you are looking at two airplane fuel gauges. can you spot the difference? no? you can't see that? alright, let's take a look. the one on the right just used 1% less fuel than the one on the left. now, to an airline a 1% difference could save enough fuel to power hundreds of flights around the world.
