6:00 pm
governorness that we've had in this place and of course they feel threatened by that. >> thanks for taking time tonight. >> thank you. the rachel maddow show starts right now. >> thanks for joining us. in 1964 the republican presidential primaries were a little bit of a mess that year or at least they were hard to follow, it was hard to figure out who was ahead. the first primary that year was won by this guy, the second one that year was won by this guy, the third one that year was won by this guy. every new primary it was a new winner and they weren't like world famous people. all over the map. of course at that time 1964 the primary system itself was pretty new. not every candidate for president was definitely competing in all of the primaries. at that point people mostly still expected that nominees would be picturked at the
6:01 pm
conventions rather than through these state-by-state contests but in 1964 there were a bunch of state-by-state primaries and about two months into them 11 primaries into it that year, by 11 primaries in six different guys had won at least one of the primaries and a bunch of them are really guys you truly have never heard of. any of these guys look familiar? but one of the candidates who competed that year and never won a thing ended up becoming a future president. he had no luck at all that year in 1964, but he did run hard in this big field of all these unknowns with everybody winning a different one, each state being a new never heard of him before winner. this future president did run hard in 1964. in one state he ran in he went is a far as to higher and hide away a secret all female phone
6:02 pm
squad in an effort to win the primary that year in the great state of oregon. it was exposed by a news crew. watch this. >> his headquarters in still another store looks the same as all the others. but the nixon people upstairs have another operation they've tried to keep secret and until now they did. set up on the fifth floor with about 50 telephones are about 30 girls hired from one of those places furnishing temporary office help. they spend the day phoning around asking people how they plan to vote. if they say nixon they get a kind word and thanks and if they say somebody else they get a nixon sales talk. they try to keep the phone set up secret perhaps to make it appear he was making no effort in oregon and when our cameramanman pushed his way in he was asked to get out. >> that was nbc news reporting in 1964 on richard nixon's
6:03 pm
secret hideaway of 30 girls that he had hired from a temp agency to set up what i guess was a very early version of a political phone bank. he wanted to keep it secret so nobody would know he was trying in oregon when he went on to lose oregon very badly. so on that same night that the secret was exposed in oregon, that same reporter in oregon for nbc also found and exposed another stethy all girl effort for a different candidate in that primary. and this one was one where the ladies didn't have to be hired to do the work. this other one that that same reporter found those ladies were there of their own volition. >> the senator is on the ballot too because of a lot of oregon ladies wanted her on and got up enough at the pishs to force it and now they're trying to get her votes and a trip to oregon. here in eugene some of her
6:04 pm
boosters are collecting trading stamps to buy her an airplane ticket and they mailed out cards asking donations of stamps. now they are meeting, licking stamps, pasting them in books and getting money for them or turning them in for merchandise and selling that. at this hour it is not clear whether they'll get mrs. smith out here or not. she hasn't been here yet. if she doesn't make it it won't be for lack of stamp licking. this is a political first, a political financed with trading stamps. >> the first woman who ran in a major party primary for president in this country was margaret smith. she's also the first woman ever elected to both the u.s. house and u.s. senate. she had been married to a member of congress from maine and she was elected to his house seat in a special election after he died. but thereafter on her own terms she was elected and reelected as a zillion times in her own name,
6:05 pm
both in the house and then in the senate before she decided in 1964 that she would make a pine erring run for president. look at this news reel. look at what they titled this piece about her. it wasn't a man throwing his hat in the ring, it's senator margaret smith so it's her b bonnette in the ring. >> the senator makes the announcement she will seek the republican presidential nomination. >> because of these very reasons against my running i have decided that i shall. >> for the first time in the nation's political history a woman is actively seeking the presidential nomination of a major party.
6:06 pm
in campaigning she's an effective speaker but everywhere the key question is about a woman running for president. she was asked a question about how she as a woman president might deal with issues. >> i think i could outtalk him. i've had a little experience with him as you may have read in the papers or have heard. i made a couple of major speeches on nuclear and immediately got a response from him. he said i was an amazon war monker. >> she was republican. she was an experienced politician. she had 24 years in washington by the time she was running for president both in the house and the senate. 24 years in washington.
6:07 pm
she got reelected over and over and over again. she was very popular. she was a bit of a specialist on national security issues. you see from the clips she was soft spoken but she was very funny. she could hold a room. she was a good speaker. but her campaign in 1964, this idea of her a woman running for president of all things it was treated like some kind of a cross between a magic trick and some charming diversion you might asked a trained child to perform at a dinner party for adults. >> where will your washington headquarters be or where will you begin to receive campaign contributions. the chair of the republican national committee his office will be headquarters for the campaign contributions. will you be willing to debate in new hampshire?
6:08 pm
>> who will be your running mate? >> none of the candidates have indicated any desire. >> what would you do as a candidate to breakdown discrimination against women? >> well, if i -- if the people of this country don't know what i would do from what i have done i don't think that i could add any information to that. >> senator, if you can't make it yourself which candidate would you support for president? >> well, again i must answer that i'm a candidate for president and i'm not supporting
6:09 pm
anybody else. >> the joke is that she is the one running for president. she's not supporting somebody else that's running. that itself is a spectacular punch line. that's what's so hilarious among this crowd. this is a crowd that is for her. they're not laughing at her in a mean way. they are laughing at the circumstance they find themselves in. the very idea that a woman would even try this. it's like stand up. margaret smith did not win the republican presidential nomination in 1964. the republican party picked barry goldwater who knows of the country thought was a nut and it was one of the general election performances in the history of that party but margaret chase smith that same year she was the
6:10 pm
first woman who made a major party try for the presidency as a declared candidate running in the primaries even if she did have to use trading stamps to try to finance her plane tickets to some of the faraway primaries. the highest profile woman to run for president after margaret chase smith was the african-american congresswoman who ran eight years later in 1972. >> i'm going to tell you something, i don't have any advanced men or public relations men. you know that i am the dark horse i am the poor horse. the only thing i have going for me is my soul and my commitment to the american people. >> i stand before you today to repud ate the notion that the american people will not vote for qualified candidate simply because he is not white or
6:11 pm
because she's not a male. i do not believe that in 1972 the great majority of americans will continue to harbor such narrow prejudices. i want to say this and it's very important for all americans to recognize, the united states constitution stipulates that anyone that is 35 years of age and over and a natural born citizen can run for the presidency. the people will make the decision. >> this is shirley announced she's running for president today. would you vote for a woman for president. >> i think president is a man's job. >> i don't think they're as level headed as the men are. >> i think it's about time. i think it's about time for shirley because things are bad as it is. they can't do worse. >> i don't think they could
6:12 pm
handle the job. >> would you vote for a woman as president. >> not as yet. i don't think women are ready for presidency. they need a little time. >> excuse me, sir. sir. hi, shirley said she's going to run for president of the united states. would you vote for her? would you vote for a woman? would you vote for a woman for president? would you vote for a woman for president. >> yeah, yeah. i can't talk. >> see, the whole concept is hilarious. that was a year before i was born. that was 1972. margaret chase smith had been the first in 1964 and shirley was eight years later but in both cases the concept of a women making a run for president was hilarious. in august this summer the summer olympics are going to start in rio, there's always drama around
6:13 pm
the olympics. the olympics are dramatic. this year there's extra drama because of the doping scandals and specifically because of where the olympics are being held as well. there's worries about the facilities that brazil has built for the olympics and water pollution where they will be swimming be and sailing and the drama and threat of the zika virus which is a huge problem in brazil and threatens to become a problem in every country of the world in which literally every county in the world sends people into brazil amid zika infected mosquitos for these games. on top of all that drama around the olympics this year, there's also the drama right now of what's going on in the nation of brazil because three days before the olympics open up in rio in august, brazil is scheduled to impeach their president. this is the president of brazil
6:14 pm
right now. you see her there in the center. she's suspended from office right now as president pending that dramatic impeachment vote before the olympics start. she is the first woman ever elected president of brazil. brazil cross in had that particular bridge five years ago when she was elected. this first female presidency of brazil turns out it's likely to be ending in an unbelievably fashion under the very hot glare of international attention as the world converges on her country for the olympic games. you know what, it is not her gender that makes what brazil going through the sort of show stopping political and international drama. yes, the president of brazil is a woman, but the rest of the world looks at that and thinks what else you got for me? there are female presidents and prime ministers and chancellors all over the world.
6:15 pm
in south korea, in germany, in lie beereea, in nappal, in the marshal islands which is a country that may disappear if sea levels rise any further. in norway, in malta. these are countries that are led by a woman president or prime minister or chancellor right now and that's not an exhaustive list but in terms of the glass ceiling being broken for national leadership by women, it has happened everywhere from turkey to sri lanka to the philippines to pakistan, to ireland, to panama. why does no one have as big a problem with this as we do? we're not the only country in the world that's never had a
6:16 pm
woman president but when you think about america among the community of nations, you think about us and the world. you think about countries that we think we're like, countries that we think of as peers, we really stand out on this front. it's quaint to look back in this country as shirley and margaret were being laughed at as woman who were adorable enough to think of themselves as somebody who might run for president. imagine her picking a running mate. pause for applause. it's quaint to look back at that old black-and-white super dated footage from our country's past to see how would-be women leaders were dismissed and mocked but at that same time in the world that was happening here with that huge joke in the united states, in 1966 there's
6:17 pm
india electing a woman to lead a nation of 150 million people. in 1969 and in 1965 sri lanka picking a female prime minister and in 1988 there's pakistan, and in 1986 there's the philippines. what is our problem exactly? why has our country been so particularly resistant over all these years when not just our closest allies in the world were choosing female leaders but so were the countries that we look down on as backward in the way they treat their women. all these other countries, all these other continents our allies and our enemies, progressive countries, conservative countries, they have gotten there years, decades before the united states has
6:18 pm
even meaningfully tried and we're still not on the board. the leap we have just taken as president obama called hillary clinton last night to congratulate her for clinching the democratic nomination, the leap we have just now in this moment taken, is only to the point where we now have a major party candidate for president who is a woman and that's a necessary but not sufficient step to getting our first woman leader. so there's a lot to get to tonight. there's a lot of news to cover tonight. specifically about how and whether hillary clinton may end up becoming president if she can win this election. but last night on the last major night of competition in this year's democratic primary she won new jersey by 26 points and california by 13 points which is a bigger margin than anybody expected or any poll predicted. she clinched the majority of pledged delegates to get the delegates she needs to clinch the nomination. that is still not the united states getting its first woman
6:19 pm
president. but it is in our own meager way, it is history. it is further than we have ever gone before. we just haven't gone very far before. it says a lot about hillary clinton, it says a lot about her, that she's the one who has been able to do it. that she's been able to go further than any other woman has gone in american history but it says a lot about american history it has taken us to 2016 to even hit this milestone. as to whether or not she's going to hit the next one, whether she's going to go all the way, news is coming in fast and furious and tonight we have new details tonight about president obama's planned meeting with senator bernie sanders. we've got a live interview in a moment with a high ranking member of the sanders campaign about how they will finish their primary. the sanders campaign may be dropping a key part of its effort to lobby super delegates
6:20 pm
to switch support to bernie sanders. on the republican side the car crash of donald trump's candidacy continued wreaking havoc among other elected republicans. there's a lot to get to. that is coming up tonight and in coming days and more. but margaret chase smith died in 1995. shirley died new year's day 20 a. neither neither got to see where we are now. when hillary clinton got this tonight the thing that struck me most looking back on history, the thing that struck me most about hillary clinton finally getting there last night is that it may have taken 52 years since margaret chase smith but this time nobody's laughing. >> on the very day my mother was born in chicago, congress was passing the 19th amendment to the constitution. that amendment finally gave
6:21 pm
women the right to vote and i really wish my mother could be here tonight. i wish she could see what a wonderful mother chelsea has become and could meet our beautiful granddaughter charlotte. and of course i wish she could see her daughter become the democratic party's nominee. to buy a new gym bag. before earning 1% cash back everywhere, every time. 2% bat grocery stores and now at wholesale clubs. and 3%ack on gas. kenny used his bankamericard cash rewards credit card to join the wednesdanight league. because he loves to play hoops. not jump through them. that's the excitement of rewardingonnections. apply online or at a bank of america near you.

6:24 pm
junior is important because it's not his grandfather who we showed a moment ago as a 1964 presidential candidate even though he died in 1924 and i believe that facial hair like that was illegal in 1964. so both black-and-white, definitely not the same person. that's one of the funniest family mistakes we've made in quite some time. we regret the error. we'll be right back. wh a moment turns romantic y pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions

6:26 pm
as it is in a rural part of the state. thanks to some very good detailed data by the l.a. times we can tell you the political news that the good folks there sent collectively $417 total to the bernie sanders for president campaign. of everybody who lives in that town, they sent $417. so if you want to come up with a per cap tau bernie sanders donation on average, 3,300 people divided by $417 that's about 14 cents donated to bernie sanders from this town. in corvalis, oregon folks sent $16,000. that's $2.87 donated to the bernie sanders campaign from
6:27 pm
this town. but if you want to know where people are sending their money to bernie it's his home state of vermont. if you look at the donations to bernie sanders' presidential campaign on a per cap tau basis in vermont it averages out to every man, woman and child in that state giving him almost ten dollars for his presidential campaign. that's a lot when you're talking about the whole state. the folks who gave him the most per person throughout this campaign were the folks who know him best as a public official. his constituents in vermont, at home, those were the people that turned out and lined the streets to greet him when he landed at the airport today in vermont as he flew home from the california primary. bernie sanders and his wife jane
6:28 pm
embracing supporters in their hometown of burlington vermont. bernie sanders ended up being the second most popular democratic candidate this year but by far it's useful to remember that he is by far the most popular u.s. senator in this country. that's even before he started running for president but it's still true now. his constituents like him as a senator more than any other state likes their senator. his latest job approval rating is 83%. he's more popular with his constituents than any other senator in the country. so today welcome home senator sanders. tomorrow morning will be back to the airport as bernie sanders will head to washington, d.c. for an important one-on-one meeting in the oval office with president obama. t"the new york times" reporting that the president plans to
6:29 pm
delicately nudge sanders. there's wide speculation there is not to say there will be any presidential endorsement for hillary clinton over the next couple of days and it's expected that bernie sanders isn't going anywhere any time until at least the d.c. primary happens on tuesday. bernie sanders is holding off on something his campaign had previously planned to do today, the campaign has not yet sent out a letter that his campaign had previously planned to send today to democratic super delegates asking them to switch their support to bernie sanders. they haven't sent that letter. so that particular part of the lobbying effort that may be slowing down. it may be stopped. but in terms of what else happens next, i don't know. i do not know. you know what, neither do you. it's up to senator sanders. anybody else who says they can
6:30 pm
predict his next actions based on something that somebody is advising him to do, anybody who says they can predict what's going to happen other than the senator himself has not been paying attention to this primary this year and all of the twists and turns. joining us now is nina turner. she's a prominent bernie sanders supporter. it's great to see you again. i know you were probably up all night last night. >> thanks for having me. >> so it was interesting to see senator sanders constituents, his hometown supporters turn out on the streets and welcome home. as a supporter of his, somebody who is very much involved in the campaign. where do you feel like the campaign is right now? what kind of decisions are being made. >> i really believe the senator is still where he was from the beginning. i know a lot of people don't get it when politicians mean what they say and say what they mean because so many don't but senator bernie sanders has been a consistent man of his word and
6:31 pm
when he says he's going all the way to the convention, he is going all the way. as we saw last night you got a chance to feel and to hear that room. the senator gave the same speech as you know that he has given countless times about what is important in this country in terms of social justice, criminal justice, economic justice, getting big money out of politics so that the voices of every day people are not drawn -- are not drowned out. so senator sanders is still just as strong and committed to all of those issues as he ever has been and in many ways this is his life's work. this is not something that he just started. i think one of his colleagues in the senate said senator sanders has been saying this for the past 30 years and democrats and the congress woereren't listeni to he took it to the people. >> in terms of going to the convention one of the things
6:32 pm
that he has achieved through this campaign is that he has good representation for the platform committee. he was able to leverage the dnc into giving a number of spots to sanders supporters to those key committees that are going to make decisions about the future of the party at the convention. is that the kind of fight that he's taking to the convention, those sorts of internal democratic party decisions about the platform, about the way the primaries are run next time around, about what the party says that it stands for in the documents of the party. i ask that because there isn't -- being straight there isn't a way for him to achieve the nomination but there are other things he could achieve at that convention. >> that's going all the way. he promised that. we have over 11 million people who have voted for the senator and that's not counting the caucuses but you talked about him being the second most popular democrat i would argue he is still the first most popular democrat and not popular for the sake of popularity but popular in a sense that not only
6:33 pm
was he able to get over 11 million votes he touched over 1.5 million people through rallies all across this country because he made them believe, he made them believe that there could be the type of leadership in this country that puts poor mammas and daddies first. the type of leadership in this country that will say to our young children that you can go to college no matter who your parents are or not and guess what united states of america we're going to follow the rest of the industrialized world and have universal health care as a right. it's all of those things. it's not just a platform because as you know not many presidential candidates follow that platform throughout their entire service in that office but this is about making that platform come alive and empowering people to hold their elected officials accountable for the words that are on that paper. i think that is an important first step but it's not the only step. it is not just about -- i think
6:34 pm
if the democrats want to have love and happiness, they might get love but they're not going to have a lot of happiness. people are awake because of bernie sanders and 2016 is nothing like 2008. i think you might agree with me on that. >> i agree with you that no election is ever expectly like any one that came before but i do -- i guess what i want to know is when you talk about making that platform come alive and making it into something where the people can hold democratic officials accountable for that, what do you mean? i know he wanted to win the nomination but i know that he didn't and i know that that is something that we haven't heard from senator sanders yet. i expect we will hear it from him eventually but short of getting the nomination he has achieved a lot and i want to know how he's going to claim that while hillary clinton also claims the nomination. >> he has achieved a lot extraordinary. he was -- he's somebody that
6:35 pm
came from vermont and you highlighted how the folks in vermont feel about him and his service as a senator to them but the way that he does that is to keep the political revolution alive. ultimately what happens is up to senator sanders but he has n minced any words about how he's going all the way to the convention but the way -- a way to hold the folks accountability is we should get those words on the platform but words are important but deeds are more important and the way to make sure that folks are held accountable is to get those words there and to make sure that not just democrats but every single american knows what a democrat said -- would say what they stant for and actually what they execute in public policy. universal health care is not something should be done incrementally. let's do it now. let's invest in our children now. doing something about the new jim crow. let's do something right now.
6:36 pm
it's a way to measure -- it's a way we need to measure. i know that you know in education there's a mid term report and i would argue that every single voter in this country needs to have a mid term report on the people that they elect to office because these pretty words are not just going do it anymore. i've traveled this entire country with bernie sanders and i tell you people are hurting and there's some people who are talking about this in a vacuum. they're not on the streets to see the men and women laid off from jobs or people who don't have all of the means to support have been out there every single day fighting their hearts out because of senator sanders mission, what he stands for and what he was fighting for, not just for the sake of him getting to the presidency, but what he's fighting for. >> nina turner, former state senator from ohio, bernie sanders surrogate and one of the
6:37 pm
mo el can't in stating the cause. stay in touch with us over the next few days. >> yes. i will say senator sanders did really well in the 2016 primary and not getting the nomination is not just -- is not the only outcome of this primary. the way that he was able to bring this right to the end, the number of people he was able to bring aloeng and expand the conversation happening within and about the democratic party is something that the democratic party needs to figure out a way to benefit from rather than recent and want to be over because the primary doesn't feel like it has a tiedy end. the best way this ends for the democratic party is for bernie sanders to be a welcome and appreciated and enter gal part of the democratic party. he's operated his entire career outside this democratic party. if this ends with him operating in it the democratic party will be stronger than it has been in years. that's my two cents. we'll be right back.

johnson was declared an official campaign delegate from the state of california for donald trump. he was going to go to the republican national convention this summer as a trump delegate. once mother jones magazine broke the news that the head of a white nationalist party was serving as a trump delegate the trump campaign undesignated him as a delegate. they blamed a data base error for him being selected in the first place. their excel spreadsheet, somebody deleted the column that said known white supremacist, yes or no. accidental, fat finger that one. data base error. the trump campaign has disavowed johnson but that has not stopped william johnson from remaining a big time fan of donald trump and now he has explained why to

msnbc's jacob. >> so you've been in the news a lot. >> lately i have yes. >> you are a white nationalist. >> yes, i'm a nationalist and nationalism is becoming popular right now. donald trump is making it popular. we're battling the globalism that's been in place for the last 40 or 50 years and donald trump is leading the charge. >> donald trump is making white nationalism popular. >> he's making nationalism popular. i'm a white nationalist. you would call him an american nationalist. it's becoming popular in the pill peens and egupt and europe he's making it popular in united states. >> because of the concept of globalism has destroyed the western civilization and donald trump is battling that. >> you are a donald trump delegate. >> i was a delegate in good standing for two hours. >> for two hours. >> what happened was is i guess i slipped through the cracks and they approved it and then there was a lot of media coverage
