tv The Last Word With Lawrence O Donnell MSNBC March 24, 2016 7:00pm-8:01pm PDT
at all, but i kept watching and slowlily it started to click and what did it for me was a character named lennord. he was one of the bar regulars on cheers, but he kept showing up at garry's door, not because he had something to say or do, but because he wanted to be on tv. he was playing a character who knew there was a tv show going on around him and he wanted to be on camera. i remember suddenly getting it when i watched that scene. getting the joke of the show, getting how the dumbest thinking be the smartest thing. he died today. no one saw it coming. a lot of people made me laugh through the years, but he made
me realize that comedians can be genius. >> i'm going to spend some time tonight talking about the next one, which i think is the true master piece of his work. when you say no one saw it coming, i saw him this peekweek in l.a. he looked great. i'll have much more to say all about all that later. >> it's awful news, but i look forward to watching it. any minute now bernie sanders is about to speak to voters in washington state where they will be voting on saturday. he is now tied with hillary clinton in a n national poll. that poll also gives john kasich an argument for staying in the race, but the big campaign story of the night is the all out war between ted cruz and donald trump. >> donald you're a coward, leave
hidedy alone. >> donald trump tweeted this photo last night. >> it's not acceptable for a big loud new york bully to attack my wife. >> it's a good year to be single. the bottom line, knock it off. >> he's now raising money for senator ted cruz. >> would you like to give? $2,700. >> what turns you on about cruz. >> that he's not trump. >> donald trump is a gift wrapped in a pink little bow for the democratic party. >> there's no perfect person. >> you have aligned yourself with the man. he's a racist and he's not good for the country. >> john kasich would be the best nominee, but he doesn't have a chance. >> kasich is not going to make it. >> my party is completely screwed up. >> they must be asking themselves how the. [ bleep] did we get here. >> donald trump has a twitter problem, a big twitter problem. after yesterday saying he would consider using nuclear weapons against isis, donald trump took to twitter last night to attack
ted cruz's wife. trump's venomous twitter addiction lead to this headline. donald trump tweets like a latin american strong man. the article concluding with trump shares a trait with the la lantin/american pop lus as a group. the 2016 election campaign has already eroded into a completely unserious presidential campaign. it may not be surprising that donald trump went after his oppone opponent's wife on twitter, but it was too much for ted cruz to ignore today. >> donald has a very unfortunate habit. when he gets scared, he lashs out. when he gets scares, he screams, yells. often he curses. he insults and attacks whoever is standing near him and you're
right donald does seem to have an issue with woman. donald doesn't like strong woman. strong woman scared donald. now, donald is scared a lot these days. donald is scared to debate. he ran away from the last debate that was scheduled because he was scared of megyn kelly and because he was scared to -- >> he went on and on. he says donald trump's comments were a sign of weakness. >> let me be absolutely clear, our spouses and children are off bounds. it is not acceptable for a big, loud new york bully to attack my wife. it is not acceptable for him to make insults, to send nasty tweets late at night. i don't know what he does late at night, but he tends to send
these about 11:30 at night. i assume when he's fears are at the highest point. that's not an action of strength. it's an action of weakness, fear and a small and petty man who is intimidated by strong women. because hidedy is way of donald trump's league. >> ted cruz had this final message for donald trump. >> seeing him go deeper and deeper into the gutter, it's not easy to tick me off. i don't get angry often, but you mess with my wife, you mess with
my kids, that will do it every time. donald you're a coward and leave her alone. >> on the campaign trail following ted cruz, ted cruz was asked the question of the day. right after that moment she asked whether ted cruz would still support donald trump if he's the republican nominee. >> >> reporter: so will you support him as the nominee? >> i'm going to beat him for the nomination. >> that's not answering the question. >> i am answering the question. donald trump will not be the nominee. >> he's leading right now. you looked in that camera and said he is a coward. will you support him as the nominee? >> donald trump will not be the nominee. >> dpregreat work. tonight ted cruz said this. >> she's been in the news the past couple of days. and let me just say although the views of some might differ, i think my wife is the most
beautiful, extraordinary, generous, loving, amazing, fantastic woman on the face of the planet. [cheers and applaus [cheers and applause] >> joining us now, contributor for cbs news and howard dean and rick wilson republican strategist and adviser to the anti-trump super pac, make america awesome and contributor to the daily beast. i want to first of all offer one word of defense for new york because ted cruz calls donald trump in here a big loud new york bully. new york's got nothing to do with it. >> nothing. >> new york's got nothing to do with it. i don't care wherever donald trump's from, it has nothing to do with it. big loud bully is all you need. donald trump has serious problems in the polls with women who ultimately end up deciding
who the presidency is and. >> and actually single women are a real voting strength this go around. >> he just keeps digging the hole deeper. >> he has a lot of problems. every time i see him i have to kind of wonder there was some freeze in his personality around third grade. he's like that badly tempered kid who says things about people and blames things on everybody else and if anybody says anything bad about him, he goes into overdrive. he said those weird things about his daughter, like if she wasn't his daughter he would date her. that's weird. he definitely shouldn't be president, but i don't want him anywhere near me or any woman i know. >> but howard dean, you get through that moment where he does that big point to the camera and you're a coward and all that and the next question he's asked is will you endorse
donald trump if he's the nominee and he can't answer it. >> ted cruz is a little weird too. he did shut down the entire government by himself, by fil filibustering and then screwed up his own party. this guy is not playing with a full deck either, but i guess donald trump makes him look better in comparison. >> he does. >> rick wilson, you're the super pac by putting out that picture of donald trump's wife that was taken years ago when she was a model, targeted to voters in utah, specifically targeted to women voters in utah and ted cruz did very very well with those voters. donald trump had his worst performance in any state. are you glad that you started this thing between the candidates about their wives? >> well, look, i think ted cruz
has had a moment in this campaign where he realizes after nine months that donald trump was always going to eat him. maybe he was going to eat him last, but trump would always turn on him in the end and he has seemingly found a deeper reserve of strength and fire tonight than he's shown before. i mean this is clearly a moment where ted cruz has to understand that this guy is implaquable. he is a monster that if you don't fight back against the monster you're going to get eaten by the monster. i think that cruz tonight realized there's no depth to which donald trump won't stoop. this is a guy who has demeaned and belittled women throughout this campaign. his voters don't care that he behaves this way. the fact of the matter is in the fall roughly 53% of the voters are going to be women and trump is right now in surveys losing terribly with women across the board, but he's particularly
losing votes among republican women who are professionals and live in swing counties all over the country where he is going to have a giant deficit withhese voters in part because of behavior he's exhibited not just from the beginning of the campaign, but his entire life. he's brought this on himself. >> i listened carefully. i didn't hear an answer to the question in there so let me put it to you this way. was the ad that you guys ran about donald trump's wife massage nisic. >> i don't think anything in politics this year has a boundary level where donald trump can't exceed it and can't go further. this is a guy who directly insulted carly fiorina on stage for her looks. this is a guy who in ordinary circumstances you would get a restraining order against them. so trump is the guy who is responsible for the tone and tenor of this campaign right now
and if people are pulling out stops, they're going to pull out the stops. the fact of the matter is donald trump -- i don't think his voters care that he's a terrible human being, i don't think they care this is a guy who treats and talks about women in a way that if it was your wife or daughter involved with it you want to punch him in the face, but he is going to behave this way and -- you raep the world wind eventually. donald trump is knonot going to change. he's crazy. whether or not donald trump chooses to moderate his behavior about ted cruz's wife who is a wonderful and brilliant woman, this is a guy that walked into this. >> i want to note for the people in the audience who are actually following the wording of the questions, that's two in a row
with no answer from rick so we're going to have to move back to nancy. was that -- >> it was. i am no fan of donald trump's, but as a woman who gives opinions on television, i have been like donald trump's wife and like mrs. cruz just by virtue of what i do. it's a dirty trick and it's mean and nasty and men don't do it to men, but he opened a flood gate of responses. >> nancy -- >> let me talk. >> we didn't interrupt you to give you a chance to answer. >> you didn't answer. it did reveal more of donald trump because since when did a presidential campaign become who has the best looking babe at his side? what does that have to do with whether you're going to be a thoughtful and peaceful president?
nothing. there's no ads of guys running for president standing with their shirts off or pants down. >> howard dean as we see with lindsey graham in the beginning of the show -- >> who had the best line of the night. >> these republicans, they're facing the worst choice of their lives, donald trump or ted cruz. they're making this choose with great pain generally in the direction of ted cruz. >> ted cruz is the more dangerous person because i'm not entirely sure he believes in democratsy. if you put a gun to my head and made me choose i would choose trump. >> is that because you think trump doesn't believe in anything. >> ted cruz has a record of shutting down the government. this guy is running for president based on the fact that he shut down the government and put millions and millions of people at a disadvantage, closing out checks essentially putting people on furlough.
is this the kind of president you want? i think the republicans are in deep trouble. most of the reasonable candidates are gone. kasich is far behind and kasich is a perfectlily niy nice guy. a little scary for me. closing down planned parenthood in ohio is no great ticket to the presidency. >> i'm more frightened by donald trump as a black woman and for people of color, i think he's much more dangerous and i'm really scared when i see how he effects his audience and then they're effect out in the pop lus it's frightening. >> thank you all very much. coming up, donald trump is in a tie in a major swing state with one of his opponents and it's not ted cruz. the case for john kasich is next. and we're watching a live
bernie sanders event in washington. we will bring you some of his remarks coming up. constipated? trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief this is the first time i've worked oa pen like thisd beinuse on the screen directly with the image, it takes me back to my time as a painter. and i just can't do that on my mac.
woman:man: yes.a newspaper? woman: it's quaint. man: did you read about this latest cyber attack? woman: yeah, i read it on my watch. man: funny. woman: they took out the whole network. man: they had to hand out pens and paper. woman: yeah. man: could it happen to us? woman: no. we're okay. man: we are? woman: yeah, we brought in some new guys. man: what do they know that we don't? woman: that you can't run a country with pens and paper. it's not just security. it's defense.
bae systems. i don't dislike ted. ted and i have a lot of differences. i'm getting better at this. what can i say? he's not completely crazy. good. >> so partially crazy. >> that works in washington. >> lindsey graham, best political comedian of the week. up next, in a new poll one republican beats hillary clinton and bernie sanders in an important swing state when they're matched in a poll and it's probably not who you think it is.
john kasich i think is the most qualified person to be president of the united states. it's an outsider year. if you have any experience, people say no thank you. the bottom line is people believe washington is so broke and they want somebody like trump who appears to be unable to be bought. john kasich's problem is he's an insider in an outsider year and nobody seems to want to buy that. >> the senator is not the only one questioning john kasich's decision to remain in the race for the republican presidential nominati nomination. here's what candidate senator ted cruz has to say about the ohio governor. >> john kasich has no path. it's mathematically impossible for him to win the nomination and he's ineligible to be the on
ballot because you have to have won eight states. >> this is what john kasich said while campaigning in the next big battle ground state of wisconsin. >> i drop out, donald trump is absolutely going to be the nominee because i mean -- i'm not out here to stop donald trump, but i can tell you the reality of it because i don't believe that senator cruz can come to the east and win. i think i can compete across this and gather delegates and i think we go to a convention. >> joining us now tom davis former congressman from virginia and the state's chairman of the john kasich campaign and barny frank, a former congressman from massachusetts who is a hillary clinton supporter. tom davis, just about everyone outside of the kasich campaign wants john kasich out of the race. what's your response? >> they really haven't looked at the math. for example if he gets out of the race, ohio, 66 votes don't go to ted cruz.
they go in directional at this point. you take a look at pennsylvania. ted cruz isn't going to win pennsylvania. john kasich has a very good shot at picking up a lot of delegates in pennsylvania and in new york and in the new england states as you go forward. the only way you're going to stop trump is tackle him. i don't think cruz is capable of doing that and cruz isn't going to walk into the convention of the majority. you have to stop short of the first ballot and see what happens. >> barny frank as you gaze across the aisle on the republican side, i hear a lot of people in new york, new jersey haven't voted saying kasich should stay in the race because he's capable of pulling down a real vote in new york and new jersey. cruz won't be able to do that and if you have kasich out in states like new york and new jersey, you're just handing big delegate piles to donald trump. >> i try not to speak outside my
area of competence and abnormal psychology is not something i took in school so i can't figure out exactly how they play this out. i do have to say that a party who can rally behind sarah palin to be vice president shouldn't be surprised that anger has appeal in the party, but i would say this -- i hope as a democrat i would like to see the republican party become a more competitive national entity because i would like to see the more reasonable republicans like tom davis and john kasich regain their party from the right wing that has unfortunately captured it. but i don't think it can happen between now and this summer. i think that's john kasich's problem.
he's a conservative, but he implemented obamacare in his state. what should have been an obvious thing infur rates a lot of republicans. so the problem is kasich is apparently -- i don't see how he wins -- how he picks up -- even if he wins a couple of primaries in the right wing states how he gets the vote. the other interesting thing that i know one thing john kasich was boosting of was when he was budget chairman, that was the only time it was balanced it with bill clinton. i was interested that kasich notes that when left congress that ended. you know what happened when he left congress, george w. bush came in. i believe that's going to be a problem for him. republicans resenting him giving credit to bill clinton for balancing the budget. >> let's look at some of the state polls coming up. tom you mentioned pennsylvania, in pennsylvania we have donald trump at 33%, john kasich within
the margin of error at 30%. he could win that one. ted cruz down at 20%. in wisconsin ted cruz is at the top of the pile at 36%. donald trump right there in a tie at 35%. john kasich down there at 19%. tom davis, that pennsylvania poll looks to me like a strong argument for your guy staying in there. >> well, yeah, and i think you'll see the same thing in new york and new jersey. when john puts some emphasis on a state he can close the gap. part of the numbers you see there are name identify ication. john kasich beats hillary clinton in every poll. >> you hear people saying if there's an open vote in the convention, they will be thinking about electability. that might be the only shot john kasich has. >> we have to take a break right here quickly.

likely democratic primary voters in pennsylvania and california. hillary clinton has a 25 point lead right now in pennsylvania with 53% to bernie sanders 28%. hillary clinton leads in california with 48% compared to bernie sanders 41%. here's what bernie sanders said moments ago at a rally in washington. >> we have got to win obviously not only the democratic nomination, we have to win the general election, whether it's against mr. trump or anyone else. [cheers and applause] >> i want to give you some good news on that. there was a cnn poll just came out a few days ago and this is what it said. it said that secretary clinton would do well against mr. trump. she'd beat him by 12 points. we beat him by 20 points.
[cheers and applause] >> i was a little bit disappointed. we want to beat him by more, but 20 points is a good place to start from. [cheers and applause] >> that same poll had secretary clinton losing to governor kasich by 6 points. we were beating kasich by 6 points. [cheers and applause] >> that same poll had secretary clinton tied with ted cruz. we were beating him by 13 points. [cheers and applause] >> this is not just one poll. this is poll after poll after poll. so the message is if democrats want to make sure that somebody
before i had the shooting, burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain, these feet played shortstop in high school, learned the horn from my dad and played gigs from new york to miami. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda approved to treat this pain, from moderate to even severe diabetic nerve pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and these feet
would like to keep the beat going. ask your doctor about lyrica. don't let dust and allergies get and life's beautiful moments. with flonase allergy relief, they wont. when we breathe in allergens, our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. flonase outperforms the #1 non-drowsy allergy pill. so you can seize those moments, wherever you find them.
flonase. six is greater than one changes everything. as you just saw bernie sanders is rallying sporteuppor in washington tonight. and hillary clinton held a meeting where she said this. >> we cannot give in to panic and fear. it's not in keeping with our values. it's not effective in protecting us and it plays into the hands of terrorists who want nothing more than to intimidate and terrorize people, turn against each other, which leads to radicalizing more people and creating even greater problems for us. >> joining us now, nina turner,
a bernie sanders supporter and former congressman barny frank who is a hillary clinton supporter. nina turner, the polls -- as the sanders campaign continues the national polls keep getting closer and closer, but there is no national poll, it's state by state, and the state by state map gets increasing more difficult for bernie sanders. >> senator sanders has outperformed at this point. he started off the campaign with 3% in the polls. look at him now, the upset in utah and iowa and americans abroad. there is no national competition. it is state-by-state, but senator sanders is getting his message out there and his message is resonating with the people. >> clinton supporters always believed then and i see no
reason why they shouldn't, that they would have a strong electability argument against bernie sanders, but then a national poll came along to surprise in every -- in virtually every one-on-one matchup bernie sanders does better against the republican candidates and way better with donald trump than hillary clinton does. >> there's two reasons for that. but first let me note we had two different campaigns here. we've had the caucus campaigns where a small number of highly motivated people carried the day. bernie sanders has won eight of those out of ten. then we have primaries where everybody can vote and you have a smaller democratic operation and hillary clinton has won 16 out of 20 of those. as to these polls, there are go factors. first of all, senator sanders has been running a much more negative and i think inaccurate campaign to some extent against hillary clinton.
for example blaming her because there haven't been prosecutions of financial industries, when the secretary has more less to do with that than he apparently thinks. what you have is this, i believe at this point a number of sanders' supporters are so hooked on this that when asked they don't support hillary clinton. on the other hand i believe almost all of hillary clinton supporters asked today said they would vote for sanders. when the heated atmosphere of the primaries ends, i think some of those people who are not supporting clinton over trump and it's an unfair argument that she's not honestly committed to doing the right thing and that will change. the other is this, despite the polls, the republicans clearly if they had their wish it would be bernie sanders. they have concentrated their fire on hillary clinton. the criticism has all been of her. nobody has yet really attacked senator sanders in areas where i think he would be vulnerable.
if he were the nominee i would campaign for him against cruz or trump or bloomberg, but the fact is that he has so far not been the focus of other kind of criticism that will come if he is the candidate and i wish it were the case that america was more willing to support higher taxes and lessphobic about sociali socialism. hillary clinton is being much more responsible and constructive in her campaign than he is in his. >> nina turner, what's your response to that? >> i totally disagree with the congressman on that. bernie sanders has never run a negative campaign in all of his career. talking about contrasts is not running a negative campaign. if we want to talk about negative, to have the secretary of state and her supporters, many of them who serve in congress try to eradicate bernie sanders entire civil rights record, that's being negative.
bernie sanders is the best candidate to go head to head with the republicans. with regards to his supporters, what the democratic party needs to understand and get a clue real quick that a lot of the supporters who are out there and they're really rallying behind a message that senator sanders has about enough is enough, that we can have a nation that invests in college education or highly skilled or creating a highly skilled workforce so our young people don't walk across the stage with debt in one hand and a degree in the other, that in the united states in america that we can dream to have universal health care in this country. this is about raising expectations. this is about making an investment in the american people. that is what senator sanders is running on. >> i want to get one more data point in here. we haven't seen this before, but they do a one-on-one matchup in this recent poll of each of the democratic against john kasich and john kasich actually beats
both of them by four points. never seen that before. go ahead barny. >> he clearly benefits by being compared to cruz and trump. he also is getting a free pass from everybody who was so appalled by cruz and trump that they don't focus on john's record. it's a good record from one standpoint, but it's not one that would show up, but as to this argument that sanders is not running a negative campaign, nonsense. i saw an ad that said these big institutions weren't penalized and why is that, because some people had speaking fees. hillary clinton has had nothing to do with the decisions whether to prosecute or not. she has a tough record on financial reform. sanders impugning her, suggesting that she somehow was responsible for failure to prosecute is just nonsense. secondly, with regard to these -- i'm sorry you spoke for a while. with regard to the issue hillary
clinton is very strongly for those, but i think what we got from the senator was yes some of the sanders people are saying they won't vote for hillary clinton. i don't think any of the clinton people are saying that about sanders. >> i'm sorry. we're going to have to leave it there. i'm sorry we're -- i'm sorry to both of you. we're going to have to break it out there. we are out of time for this segment. thank you both. i hope you can both come back and discuss this further. am cooiming up, gary shandling's friends struggle today with how to describe what his loss means to them. the right one for her? is this really any better than the one you got last year? if we consolidate suppliers, what's the savings there? so should we go with the 467 horsepower? ...or is a 423 enough? good question. you ask a lot of good questions... i think we should move you into our new fund. sure... ok. but are you asking enough about how your wealth is managed? wealth management at charles schwab.

poll. we have the matchup on the screen that's too far away for me to read. john kasich does beat hillary clinton by 4 points in this poll, but bernie sanders as usual beats john kasich in the poll and actually beats him by 4 points. so there's actually an 8 point difference in the performance of hillary clinton and bernie sanders in this poll against john kasich. that is not an uncommon result at all. that result i've seen in many, many polls before this one. so just to get it straight again, yes john kasich beats hillary clinton in that poll, but bernie sanders beats john kasich as usual in that theoretical one-on-one poll. we're going to be right back with a last word tonight about gary shandling.

(announcer vo) it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. now for tonight's last word. warren beatty was a movie star during gary shandling's career. only warren could talk gary into doing a crowning achievement. it should be high if not on the top of every list of the greatest tv series of all time. >> hey, warren. >> hey. >> listen, how would you like to come on my show tomorrow night and just say a little good bye
to me because it's the end of the whole thing tomorrow night. >> i can say good bye to you now. >> there's no cameras or anything here. tomorrow night, millions of people. >> what have you go the? >> we have carol burnet and clint black. >> who. >> clint black. he's going to sing good bye to me. it's going to be fantastic. >> good bye. >> all of the best tv comedy since then owe something to garry shandling's master piece. today a writer from the show said he would see the ridicul s ridiculousness of me being asked to sum up his life five minutes after his passing. i can imagine how hank would handle it, but i don't know how to sum up someone i loved so much who taught me everything i know and was always so kind to me. i am just too sad.
maybe tomorrow i will do better. the character of hank on larry sanders was before i knew the larry sanders show, but hank made me fall in love with his work is this this is how i use he now in this sentence. you say of course my side kick hank. >> of course my side kick hank. >> hey now. >> no, i prefer you not do it on the show anymore. it gets on my nerves. it gets on the audiences' nerves as well. >> no. >> hank. >> you're not out there and believe me it's very big with the audience and i'm going to tell you something else, i think it helps make the show work. it's part of our whole interplay. >> by interplay you mean the times when we're both awake. >> hey now. >> just cut down on it, could you do that, please?
>> today jeffry said this. i am so sad. garry was my dear friend. he redesigned the wheeling of comedy and he was the kindness and funniest of genius. katherine who played the ex-wife on the show told me today he took comedy very serious. working with him in a scene was wonderful because anything you did he was open to. >> i want to thank them for returning the coach. >> it's on -- it's on a timer. wait a minute. >> oh, that -- that thing is happening again where you're suit disappears into the curtain. >> that doesn't really bother me anymore. >> really? it looks good.
great. >> where are you going? >> i have a deadline. >> no, no, no, no. look. here. >> that's a very sweet gesture. >> sweet gesture. i'm trying to show up for everybody. >> i know you want to dinner, but jees uz, i'm warning you don't have sex with her. larry. >> she told me today that garg y >> she told me today that gaarr had no idea she was going to pull the bed covers off the bed like that. today there was a statement saying he was the writing voice of comedy. he set the standard and we're still trying to meet it. he gave us opportunities to learn how to do the best work of our lives. >> monday night, can you believe
it? >> no. man i'm scared to death. >> larry did the show for ten years. you're going to do it for twice as long. this isn't [ bleep] . this is reality, man. >> you think? >> yeah. i got to talk to larry. >> don't worry about larry. larry is a thing of the past. the guy is the a track. he's a [ bleep] horse and buggy. >> if you were lucky enough to set foot on the larry sanders set in any capacity, you knew you were standing in the center of the comedy universe. the first time most of us saw jeremy piven was playing a writer on the larry sanders show, as did sara silverman. seth mcfarland said today saddened. he leaves behind the greatest single camera comedy of all
time. amy said good bye. thank you for your kindness and generousty and making me laugh so much. i last saw garry on saturday afternoon. we see somebody we know at a distan distance we can say hello or not. he didn't see me and i was in a conversation with someone else and so i didn't say hello and i was still in that conversation when he came out of starbucks and so i had another chance, but once again i blew it. i didn't call out to him. i didn't go over and say hi. we weren't close friends. we weren't buddies. we knew each other more than enough to say hello and spend a minute or two talking about what's going on in the world, so i lost that final moment that i had no idea was going to be the final moment where i could have maybe heard right off the top of
his head the greatest donald trump joke ever and maybe somewhere in the ease of bumping into him that way there was the feeling of i'll be here next weekend, maybe i'll bump into him again and i'll say hi and we'll talk about the campaign and whatever, so today i was retaught the lesson that i thought i knew, that we just never know. we never know. we can never let those moments pass. i spoke to warren beaty about his friend. he was reading some of the beautiful things people were saying and it left him feeling speechless. no one in hollywood is more el can't or wise. we talked of other things and then finally he said, quote, this hit me hard. it shocked me. i loved him very much. he was brilliant. honestly i can't find the words.
>> you folks see that flashing sign up there? now, that sign says applesauce. no, i'm kidding. it says applause. do me a favor, can you flick that once? all right. now, remember you're all a big part of the show so the better you are, the better larry is. now you see this gentleman, now he's giving me this sign and it says we're on in ten seconds so get ready to have a good time. all right. here we go. this is exciting, isn't it? tonight on all in. >> donald you're a coward and leave hiddy alone. ted cruz responds to more sexism from the republican front-runner.
donald trump will not be the nominee. >> tonight the latest from the stop trump movement and the rank mass ojny from the likely republican >> a tale of two surrogates. >> i think my party is screwed up. : more outrage in arizona. >> who's to blame for the long lines? >> the voters for getting in line and us for not having enough polling places. >> my woman for the voting debacle. good evening from back here in new york. i'm chris hayes. it's the nightmare scenario for the gop. as donald trump gets closer and closer to securing the nomination, he's going further and further into the gutter. the numbers are now quite clear and they are stark.
