tv Way Too Early MSNBC June 27, 2016 2:30am-3:01am PDT
>> the trump campaign defending the candidate's reaction to the brexit as hillary clinton goes on the attack. we'll have her new ad. plus, the latest fallout from the uk this morning, the nation is divided, the government is in chaos, and markets around the world are anxious for what's to come. and more rain is on the way for west virginia. just as residents were getting a first look at the damage from that deadly flooding. we'll have the latest on the state of emergency there. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west and this is "way too early." good morning. it's monday, june 27th, i'm jonathan capehart. the fallout from the historic brexit vote still being held this morning as the political upheaval over britain's decision to exit the european union gross
larger. parliament is meeting for the first time today since the vote in scotland first minister nicolas sturgeon is threat being to block the exit. sturgeon says she will weigh whether to advise the country's parliament to use its power to prevent britain from leaving the eu. >> this wouldn't be about the scottish parliament trying to block england. this would be about the scottish parliament taking a decision about what's in the best interest of scotland. i say again, i recognize absolutely all of the complexities of being thrown out by the vote on thursday. but i didn't create these, and i have to deal with the reality within those -- >> sturgeon says her country could hold another referendum on scottish independence from britain. meanwhile an online petition calling for a second referendum on britain's exit from the european union has surpassed 3.5 million signatures. britain's opposition leader not exactly seeing the same kind of support as he faces back lash from within his own party.
a growing number of labor party politicians have resigned in protest over jeremy corbin's handling of the vote. he is vowing not to resign. meanwhile in london, secretary of state john kerry is meeting with britain's foreign minister and european union officials today where he is expected to stress the importance of other eu members not following britain's lead. britain's finance minister is looking to calm the fear hitting the markets following the brexit vote. speaking earlier this morning, giorgos boreorge osborne worked the panic of friday. >> it will not be plain sailing in the days ahead. let me be clear you should not underestimate our resolve. we were prepared for the unexpected. and we are equipped for whatever happens. and we are determined that unlike eight years ago, britain's financial system will help our country deal with any shocks and dampen them not contribute to those shocks, or make them worse.
>> cnbc's lisa bojesen joins us live from london. how are the markets looking today? >> a tense morning let's put it that way. nothing next to what we were seeing on friday but we were called lower. we opened lower and currently our european equity markets are drifting lower in the region of 1.5% or so. interesting to note, though, some outperformance coming through from the ibex. the spanish market had the general election yesterday. the polls had indicated that the spaniards may be not voting for the conservative party that had been in power before, but that they might take a chance on a populist party for example, that didn't happen and it's thought they maybe look towards what's been going on here and thought we're going to vote for what we know already. so they did that and spain has been outperforming a bit. in terms of what you were saying with george osborne the finance minister here, he did say as you indicate that they stand ready to come together some of the leaders here if need be. he also spoke about how it's sensible to wait for a new prime minister before deciding any
type of action. you have to keep in mind that this isn't the binding vote. you first need parliament to agree before you can trigger this article 50 that leads to an actual brexit. so there's a lot of negotiating that has to happen here over the next couple of months given that we don't have a prime minister. boris johnson, incidentally, the favorite to take over from david cameron, now opponents to boris johnson in government, they're starting this anything but boris for prime minister campaign to try to prevent boris from taking over in that post. back to you. >> all right louisa bojesen, thank you very much, live from london. the backlash over the brexit is spilling across the atlantic as hillary clinton slams donald trump for his reaction to the outcome of the referendum. speaking at a conference of city mayors in indianapolis yesterday clinton, without mentioning trump by name, took a swipe at her presumed opponent, and his reaction to the uk's decision. >> we need leaders like yourselves, at the local and state and federal level, who
understand how to work with other lead eers, to manage risk who understand that bombastic comments in turbulent times can actually cause more turbulence. and who put the interests of the american people ahead of their personal business interests. >> the attack didn't stop there. clinton's campaign has released a new ad accusing trump of caring more about how britain's vote to leave the eu would benefit his own financial interests than how it would impact the u.s. economy. >> enormous shockwaves from britain's historic vote to leave
the european union. global markets are plummeting. >> every president is tested by world events. but donald trump thinks about how his golf resort can profit from them. >> when the pound goes down, more team are coming to turnberry. >> stocks tank and the world. >> brand new sprinkler system. the highest level. >> he's talking with his new
sprinkler system. >> in a volatile world the last thing we need is a volatile president. >>
i'm hillary clinton, and i approve this message. >> this is an example again of the tone deafness of the clinton campaign. first of all, when you -- when you look at what was happening in, in, in the clinton campaign over the last month they have spend $60 million against donald trump on ads like this. talking about things that are totally distracting -- distractive and unconnected to what's going on in the american political system. the american people care about what is going to happen to their lives. about change. and the issues of brexit, this kind of phony ad, doesn't address those things. and hillary clinton is ignoring the reality because she's part of the establishment. she can't get away from the fact that she is part of the problem that's being rejected. >> both candidates are using the british referendum to boost their war chest. trump, and clinton, each sent e-mails to supporters friday night asking for campaign
contributions. new national polling brought defiance from the trump campaign, rejecting the notion that the republican fell behind in the month of june. the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll has clinton leading trump by five points 46% to 41%. a two-point shift from last month. whereas a new "washington post"/abc news poll has trump plummeting to a 12-point deficit 51% to 39% down from a two-point lead in that poll last month which is also the last national poll that showed him ahead. an explanation for the disparity could lie in the sample size the abc poll gives the democrats a 12-point edge in the electorate while the nbc poll has a four-point democrat advantage. "the washington post" poll also finds president obama with a 56% approval rating. his highest since the killing of osama bin laden. and a sign that he will be an active participant in taking on trump. on "meet the press" trump's campaign manager paul manafort revealed they have a plan in 16
battleground states, and will be making new staff announcements this week >> do you acknowledge that you're behind both organizationally and in the polls? >> no. i think because what you're trying to do is comparing an 800 person organization in brooklyn of mrs. clinton's with an integrated system of the rnc and the trump campaign, which doesn't appear on an fec report. we have hundreds -- we have actually thousands of people in battleground states, political organizers who are now in place -- >> also in "the washington post"/abc poll respondents were asked whether donald trump is up to the job of commander in chief. with 64%, nearly two-thirds, saying he is not qualified. even the senate's republican majority leader senator mitch mcconnell avoided answering the question yesterday. >> do you believe he's qualified, and how do you convince all those voters who think he isn't? >> well, look, i think there's no question that he's made a number of mistakes over the last few weeks. i think they're beginning to right the ship.
it's a long time until november. and the burden, obviously, will be on him to convince people that he can handle this job. >> i didn't hear you say whether you thought he was qualified. >> look, that will be up to the american people to decide. he won the republican nomination fair and square. he got more votes than anybody else, against a whole lot of well-qualified candidates, and so our primary voters have made their decision as to who they want to be the nominee. the american people will be able to make that decision in the fall. >> according to the wapo/an poll 58% of republicans think gop leaders should speak out when they disagree with trump, 38% said they should avoid criticizing him. hank paulson saying given trump's nomination he will quote put country before party and vote for clinton. despite praising paulson in the past trump's response to reporters was quote don't know anything about him. and conservative columnist george will announced he has
changed his registration to unaffiliated, stating bluntly what he cease for the future. >> what do you think conservatives who don't agree with trump should do at this point in the race? >> make sure he loses. >> donald trump and the rnc are acting in tandem to halt all attempts to undo his nomination at the convention in three weeks. a republican delegate from virginia who backed ted cruz has filed a federal lawsuit asking for a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction to unbind him and delegates to both party's national conventions arguing it violates the first and 14 amendments. the republican national committee is working to thwart delegates who are promoting a conscience exemption to unbind their votes with trump saying ted cruz and john kasich have only a short time to fall in line before the convention, quote, if there's no endorsement, then i wouldn't invite them to speak. a new "washington post"/abc poll shows that bernie sanders supporters are rallying behind
hillary clinton. 81% of sanders backers now say they would support clinton versus 8% for donald trump. at this point in 2008 clinton primary supporters only backed then-senator barack obama 65% to 22%. despite saying he'd vote for clinton in november, bernie sanders has yet to give a full-throated endorsement. >> we are trying to say to secretary clinton, and to the clinton campaign, make it clear which side you are on. right now what we are doing is trying to say to the clinton campaign, stand up, be bolder than you have been. it's not just bernie sanders saying oh, you know just vote for hillary clinton. it is hillary clinton standing up and saying you know what? these are the things we need to do. and if she does the right thing i am absolutely confident that the vast majority of my supporters will vote for her. >> over the weekend, democrats approved the draft party platform that largely reflects the influence of sanders' campaign including a push for a
$15 minimum wage and endorsing steps to break up big wall street banks. clinton's senior policy adviser called it quote the most ambitious and progressive platform our party has ever seen. the sanders campaign meanwhile called the initial draft a quote very good start. vice president joe biden spent the weekend in ireland following the brexit vote. in one speech he made a veiled reference to donald trump when he warned against blaming immigrants for unrest. >> we see in my home country where some politicians find it convenient to scapegoat immigrants instead of welcome them. to play to our fears -- to play to our fears rather than as abraham lincoln said appeal to our better angels, divide us, based on religion or ethnicity, rather thanou night us on our common humanity. build walls instead of bridges. it has been un-american what we have been seeing.
>> the vast majority of the american people do not agree with donald trump's zen feeb yeah or look we've gone through these periods before but we always come out the other side. we always come out the other side. and we will this time, too. at least 10 people were injured after protesters and white nationalists clashed at california's state capitol building. the traditionalist workers party a white wing extremist group scheduled a protest. at some point things escalated and the protests turned violent. at least five people were stabbed and others were injured after being hit with rocks. now everyone is expected to survive and no arrests were made. this morning, "the new york times" is reporting that cia weapons intended for syrian rebels are now being sold on the black market in jordan. some of those weapons the reports claims were used to kill two americans and three others at a police training facility at owe man in november.
the times sources american and jordanian officials saying the weapons were stolen by jordanian intelligence operatives. we're told they used the money to buy suvs, iphones and other luxury items. a specifics person called the weapons theft quote absolutely incorrect. still ahead on "way too early," the latest on those deadly floods that have led to a state of emergency in west virginia. more wet weather is expected today. we'll check in with bill karins. plus -- >> so we've come to cash this check. a check that will give us the riches of freedom. and the security of justice. >> entertainment and social justice collided at this year's b.e.t. awards. oh, and in case you missed it, beyonce opened the show. we'll have the highlights.

time now for sports. the u.s. men's national team wrapped up its copa america tournament with a fourth place finish after falling to colombia 1-0 on saturday. but last night it was argentina and chile squaring off in the final. while argentina outshot chile in the game, neither club could find the back of the net as the scoreboard remained blank through regulation and 30 minutes of extra time. and for the second straight year the title game came down to penalty kicks. argentina star lionel messi tallied five goals in the tournament but could not convert on his pk attempt sending the ball over the cross bar and into the stands. you can see the shocked faces. instead francisco silva puts in the deciding shot earning chile's second straight penalty shots. with last night's defeat argentina has now lost seven straight major tournament finals since 1993. and now, the world's best player says he may never be a champion with his home country. the 29-year-old messi told
reporters after the loss that he is, quote, done playing with the national team. turning now to major league baseball where in cincinnati the reds honored hit king pete rose yesterday by retiring his number 14 jersey in a pregame ceremony at great american ball park. in pro golf, bill hurley iii wraps up his first pga tour victory shooting a 2 under 69 in yesterday's final round for a three-stroke win at the quicken loans national tournament. but we want to show you this highlight from saturday. ernie els hitting an iron for about 160 yards away from the pin on the par 4 12th, drops his shot directly into the hole. no bounces, for an eagle. the 46-year-old would end up with the best score of the day, shooting a bogey-free 65. >> so -- >> i -- >> people can golf their whole lives they don't get a hole in one or even hole one out from
the fairway. >> that was pretty amazing. i bet i could do it on my first shot. >> i'm sure you probably will never try. well good morning, everyone, west virginia was in the headlines all weekend long. it was just in -- in -- incredible about how it just kept going and you know, the death toll kept going up. the pictures like this. we kept getting more of these in as the weekend went along. the river levels stayed very high. fatalities up to 25 from the flash flooding that was late thursday night and then it continued into friday morning. and the last check as of yesterday there was still about 10,000 people without power in e area. so as far as the deadly floods go you know you think that with our technology and everything else that we'd be past a lot of these big events. this ended up being the 12th deadliest flash flood in our country's recorded history. the only ones recently 1990, ohio had 26 and the ones that hit the nashville area in 2010. a lot of these on the list were from the mid 1900s or even the late 1800s. and in west virginia, again, most of the rivers have gone
down. it's still very saturated with the soil, cold front's going to go through today. these storms that are now in ohio will pass through west virginia today and head towards the east coast. because it's so saturated they have issued a flash flood watch for the areas that were devastated by the recent floods. again it won't cause much for new flooding but the odds of seeing anything, even close to like what we saw are very slim. maybe half inch to an inch of rainfall and more in virginia than in west virginia. otherwise, very hot map out there, jonathan, much of the country continuing to see a very warm summer. how does 102 in salt lake city sound today? >> wow. sounds hot. >> yes. >> all right, bill karins, thanks very much. up next, the acceptance speech at the b.e.t. awards that lit social media on fire. we'll be right back.
now let's get a check on the morning's other headlines. we go to the control room and louis burgdorf. >> let's start with last night's b.e.t. awards. one of the major themes politics and social justice. beyonce opened the show with kendrick lamar. jesse williams also had social media buzzing when he went up to receive his humanitarian award. >> what we've been doing is looking at the data and we know that police somehow manage to de-escalate, disarm, and not kill white people every day. so what's going to happen is we are going to have equal rights and justice in our own country
or we will restructure their function and hours. freedom is always conditional here. you're free they keep telling us. but she would have been alive if she hadn't acted so free. the burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander. that's not our job. stop with all that. if you have a critique for the resistance, for our resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. if you have no interest, if you have no interest in equal rights for black people, then do not make suggestions to those who do. sit down. >> there were also nods to the presidential election. stars who spoke out were clearly with her. >> you know what i heard? i heard that one of the largest, most influential demographics are single women in this election. oh, yeah. so basically, technically, what that means is that i will be determining the next president. welcome to the white house, hillary clinton.
>> i'm really not political but it's serious out here. and for those who think that, you know, oh, he's not going to win. think again. so, we really need to pull together and turn this country around. >> she didn't use trump's name, usher was more explicit. the words don't trump america emblazoned on his shirt. all right yesterday wrapped up gay pride weekend for many cities across the world. thousands came out to support gay pride in new york including some political heavyweights hillary clinton marched a few blocks with new york governor andrew cuomo and new york city mayor bill de blasio and our very own reverend al sharpton. nba commissioner adam silver and deputy commissioner also came out wearing black t-shirts with a rainbow and the orders orlando united on them. what a great weekend now finally this morning jonathan a former president received a lesson in nutrition over the weekend. the 41st president george h.w. bush posted a letter to his twitter account that he received from a 5-year-old boy that read
my grandma told me that you do not like broccoli and never want it served. i just want you to know that i love broccoli, mr. president broccoli is really good for you i wish you like broccoli like i do. the president who has famously proclaimed his disdain for the vegetable replied quote proud of young cooper's interest in healthy eating his declared love of broccoli is genuine if also unpersuasive. good try, kid. i guess that just didn't work for the president. >> that's great. he doesn't know what he's missing. >> yes. >> broccoli is good. >> that crunch. >> yeah. you know -- you can make it unhealthy, too. melt some cheese on it. >> cheese on it. all right, louis. that does it for me and you and "way too early." coming up on "morning joe" we'll go live to london with the political turmoil over brexit. plus the latest fallout here at home as hillary clinton slams donald trump's response to the british exit. we'll have her new ad. and it seems trump is now softening his stance on some of his most controversial positions
