tv Way Too Early MSNBC August 2, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT
there you are. they put out the boat fire with a flyboard. it's like back to the future means back draft. fly brd. "first look" is up next. >> i've watched as people come up, and they say, and i've dealt with the politicians, and i worked with all the politicians. i get along with all, frankly i get along with democrats, i get along with everybody. you know when i was a businessman it was my job to get along with everybody. i get along with everybody. i even get along with hillary clinton. i get along with everybody. i owe it to my family, to my company, to my employees, i got a huge company, i got a great company. but i get along with everybody. i know how to do it. i know how to do it. >> donald trump, while under fire from both sides for his response to the family of a fallen soldier, tries to turn the page while launching another rhetorical bomb at hillary clinton. meanwhile another billionaire gets into the mix. first michael bloomberg, then
mark cuban, now warren buffett is taking his best shots at trump, even issuing him a challenge, manno a mano. and home groan zika infections on the rise. a health warning for pregnant women in south florida and across the nation. it is 5:00 a.m. on the west coast, 2:00 a.m. out west, this is "way too early." good morning, it is tuesday, august 2nd. i'm chris jansing. the presidential nominees have launched a turf war over the same territory as donald trump steered his campaign back to the midwest yesterday, doing his best to sidestep controversy stirred when he said the father of a killed in action u.s. army captain had no right to criticize him. trump campaigned in ohio and
pennsylvania, where he focused his attack on hillary clinton. worried over election tampering, and promised to restore manufacturing jobs. >> they call it the rust belt for a reason. because everything's rusting and rotting. you lost your jobs. they're moving to mexico. and we're going to renegotiate. if you want, unless you don't want to do this, we're going to renegotiate nafta. the other day i saw hillary clinton saying, first time ever! we are going to start renegotiating our trade deals. that's been me for years. that's been me. i'm afraid the election's going to be rigged, i have to be honest. because i think my side was rigged -- if i didn't win by massive landslides, i mean think of what we won in new york and indiana, california, 78%. when they showed bernie very angry, they're talking about bernie, because he made a bad deal. he should have nominated -- once he made that deal and believe me
he has buyer's remorse, you know. this guy has buyer's remorse. he looked at that and he was so angry when they were talking about him, and his people are angry at him, and they should be. if he would have just not done anything, just go home, go to sleep, relax, he would have been a hero. but he made a deal with the devil. she's the devil. he made a deal with the devil. really. >> trump continues to face growing back lash after criticizing the parents of a u.s. soldier killed in iraq. according to reuters trump campaign sent an e-mail to senator senate aides yesterday with talking points that lawmakers could use to try to tamp down the controversy. but at this point a number of republican lawmakers and veterans groups have already condemned trump's attacks against khizr and ghazala khan. and trump, once again, isn't offering any apologies. >> i was very viciously attacked, as you know, on the stage, and i was surprised to see it, and so all i did, i have great honor and great feeling for his son, mr. khan's son, but -- and you know as far as
i'm concerned he's a hero, but horrible things were said about me. i think it was, frankly, very tough. so all i did is respond. and i will always respond. >> you did call this man's son a hero, did you not? >> yes, i did, absolutely. whenever you have the gold star families, whenever you have, you know, what you and i have discussed in the past, i mean, these are great people, great families, frankly. i can say this, if i was president, because his son died twelve years ago, if i were president his son wouldn't have died because i wouldn't have been in the war if i was president back then. there would have been no war for iraq i can tell you that because i think it's ridiculous, the whole thing. >> trump's vice presidential running mate mike pence was also dragged into the controversy. during an event in nevada last night he was asked this question by the mother of an active air force staff sergeant. >> time and time again, trump has disrespected our nation's armed forces and veterans, and
has disrespect for mr. khan and his family is just an example of that. will there ever be a point in time when you're able to look at trump in the eye and tell him enough is enough. do you have a son in the military -- >> it's okay. >> how do you tolerate his disrespect? >> well, i thank you for the question. it's all right. it's all right. folks, that's what freedom looks like, and that's what freedom sounds like. >> after quieting the jeers, pence went on to call captain khan on american hero. meanwhile south carolina governor nikki haley jumped to the khan family's defense yesterday saying they have the standing to say whatever they want in the political process and should not face criticism for it. arizona senator john mccain also rebuked trump's comments, but mccain, like many others, has not drawn his support -- withdrawn his support of trump. >> i still support the nominee of the party.
and i'll tell you what, when any time from now on, when that question is asked, if i change my mind, i'll let you know. okay? >> president obama also weighed in on the controversy, albeit indirectly, while addressing the convention of disabled american veterans, the commander in chief praised the strength of the u.s. military while defending the honor of those who have lost loved once in war. >> as commander in chief i'm pretty tired of some folks trash talking america's military and troops. no one, no one has given more for our freedom and our security than our gold star families. michelle and i have spent countless hours with them. we have grieved with them. there's a reason why last week in philadelphia i was humbled to be introduced by sharon belcafor
from ohio a gold star mom whose son tom, a lieutenant colonel in the army, gave his life in afghanistan. i requested sharon to introduce me. because i understood that our gold star families have made a sacrifice that most of us cannot even begin to imagine. they represent the very best of our country. they continue to inspire us every day, every moment. they serve as a powerful reminder of the true strength of america. we have to do everything we can for those families. and honor them. and be humbled by them. >> billionaire investor warren buffett is throwing his two cents into the controversy. before introducing hillary clinton at a campaign rally in omaha, nebraska, yesterday, buffett invoked joseph welch's question during the 1954 mccarthy hearings when discussing trump's claims of
sacrifice. >> we've both done extremely well during this period, and our families haven't sacrificed anything, and donald trump and i haven't sacrificed anything. but how in the world can you stand up to a couple of parents who've lost a son, and talk about sacrificing because you were building a bunch of buildings? i ask donald trump, have you no sense of decency, sir? >> buffett also criticized trump for his refusal to release his tax returns because, as trump claims, they're being audited. >> now i've got news for him, i'm under audit, too. and i would be delighted to meet him any place, any time, between now and election, i'll bring my tax returns, he can bring his tax return, nobody's going to arrest us, it is not -- there are no rules against showing your tax returns, and just let
people ask us questions about the items that are on there. >> while donald trump avoided the topic of the khans on the trail it still came up on others' campaign trails. republican paul nehlen challenging paul ryan next week slammed the speaker for allegedly misrepresenting trump's position. he also took to his campaign reb scythe to contend that captain khan's parents chose to politicize the death of their son, and that trump's solutions are commonsense. the republican nominee tweeted his thanks to nehlen for your kind words yesterday with nehlen responding, my pleasure, sir, just want to make america great again. a spokesman for speaker ryan replied, quote, rather than engage in a back and forth the speaker is going to remain focused entirely on ensuring we deliver strong republican majorities this fall. meanwhile wisconsin media is reporting that the trump campaign is planning a rally in green bay on friday, just four days before that primary. and trump is taking more swipes at his latest political
target local fire marshals. speaking to reporters yesterday before his rally in columbus, ohio, trump accused the city of turning away thousands without cause. >> i just want to tell you we've had thousands of people outside, thousands, they were turned away by -- for political reasons, purely for political reasons, they said in this massive building you're not allowed to have any more than 1,000 people. and that's nonsense. we could have had four, five, 6,000 people. they've all been turned away. you saw them, that's a disgrace. that's for political reasons. they were turned away, and that's too bad. so we have 1,000 people in there. they won't allow any more. the fire marshal said he's not allowed to allow any more, even though the building holds many thousands of people. so i just want to tell you that. that's politics at its lowest. you ought to check it out. but it's really politics at its lowest. >> now those comments echo trump's criticism of colorado springs fire marshal who also said he turned away people from an event on friday due to capacity restrictions. >> we have thousands of people
in a room next door. we have plenty of space here. we have thousands of people outside trying to get in, and we have a fire marshal that said oh, we can't allow more people. the reason they won't let them is because they don't know what the hell they're doing, that's why. too bad. that's why our country has from -- hey, maybe they're a hillary person. could that be possible? probably. >> now by the time the republican nominee took the stage last night in pennsylvania, trump barely able to hold back a grin, praise the fire marshal there. >> and let me give you a little something else. they sent away and this is sad, they sent away over 5,000 people outside. and look at this place. i want to thank the fire marshal because obviously we have a great fire marshal here.
>> by the way, the colorado springs fire marshal has responded saying it is unfortunate that trump's campaign would question our judgment, expect us to break the law, or waiver from our commission to protect our community. meantime zika is spreading in southern florida and now health officials are warning pregnant women there to avoid the hardest hit area. according to the cdc women of the area expecting should sheer clear of that area just north of downtown miami. there have been 14 cases of zika spread by mosquitoes. it's linked to devastating birth defects across latin america. now federal health officials say all pregnant women across the u.s. should be assessed for possible exposure during each prenatal appointment. there are new details this morning about the man who was piloting a hot air balloon that crashed in texas over the weekend. killing himself and 15 others on board. according to court documents, alfred nichols had a record that
included arrest for dui and drug, however an ex-girlfriend said he had been sober for years. one court documents says nichols' driver's license was suspended until 20 to. it appears none of this may have been disclosed to the faa because of a loophole in balloon pilot licensing rules. officials have not determined if pilot error was involved. but are now working to piece together what happened through cell phones recovered from the scene. a preliminary report by the ntsb says the balloon appeared to be preparing to land when it hit those high tension power lines, caught fire, and crashed to the ground. yesterday, family members of the victims visited the crash site to pay their respects. leaving behind a makeshift memorial. saturday's crash was the deadliest hot air balloon accident in u.s. history. still to come on "way too early," former new york city mayor michael bloomberg just endorsed the democrat for president but we'll tell you which republican he's also backing in the 2016 election. plus -- >> it looked like a wave of
water that came out of nowhere and was up to the doors on the car and started pushing the car away. and my sister screamed, we need to get out of here now! >> a maryland man who lost his sister in that deadly flooding over the weekend talking about the moment disaster struck. we'll have the latest on the recovery, and a check of the forecast ahead. when "way too early" comes right back. be the you who doesn't cover your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

including dillon tate the fourth overall pick in the 2015 draft. they also dealt struggling pitcher ivan nova to the pittsburgh pirates for two players to be named later on. nova follows relievers chapman and andrew miller out of new york. after the deadline the yanks took a short trip across town to citi field for the first of a four game subway series with the mets. john mcenroe on the mound set to toss out the ceremonial first pitch mcenroe brings the heat. looks like he's trying out for a spot in the bull pen there. the yankees snap a four game slide plating two runs in the eighth inning to tie the contest which goes to extra innings and in the tenth a sacrifice fly hit by starling castro brings in the go ahead run. the first save of the season, and the bombers take a 6-5 win

best soundtrack in morning television. good morning it is tuesday, august 2nd, i'm chris jansing. donald trump continues to face growing backlash after criticizing the parents of a u.s. soldier killed in iraq. according to reuters, trump's campaign sent an e-mail to senior senator aides yesterday, with talking points that lawmakers could use to try to tamp down the controversy. but at this point a number of republican lawmakers and veterans groups have already condemned trump's attacks against khizr and ghazala khan and trump once again isn't offering any apology. >> i was very viciously attacked, as you know, on the stage, and i was surprised to see it, so all i did, i have great honor and great feeling for his son, mr. khan's son,
but -- and you know, as far as i'm concerned he's a hero. but, horrible things were said about me. i think it was, frankly, very tough. so all i did is respond. and i will always respond. >> you did call this man's son a hero, did you not? >> yes, i did. absolutely. whenever you have the gold star families, whenever you have, you know, what you and i have discussed in the past, i mean, these are great people, great families, frankly. i can say this, if i was president, because his son died twelve years ago, if i were president his son wouldn't have died because i wouldn't have been in the wore. if i was president back then. there would have been no war for iraq. i can tell you that, because i think it's ridiculous the whole thing. >> trump's vice presidential running mate, mike pence, was also dragged into the controversy. during an event in nevada last night he was asked this question by the mother of an active air force staff sergeant. >> time and time again, trump has disrespected our nation's armed forces, and veterans, and
his disrespect for mr. khan and his family just an example of that. will there ever be -- will there ever be a point in time when you're able to look at trump in the eye and tell him enough is enough -- >> hold on. >> you have a son in the military -- >> it's okay. >> how do you tolerate his disrespect? >> well, i thank you for the question. it's all right. it's all right. folks, that's what freedom looks like and that's what freedom sounds like. >> after quieting the jeers, pence went on to call captain khan an american hero. meanwhile south carolina's governor nikki haley jumped to the khan family's defense yesterday saying they have the standing to say whatever they want in the political process and should not face criticism for it. and the senator from arizona has both rebuked trump's comments but senator john mccain stopped short of withdrawing his support. >> i will support the nominee of the party, and i tell you what,
when -- any time from now on, when that question is asked, if i change my mind, i'll let you know. okay? >> we're just minutes away, by the way, from the release of new polling data on the white house. already two new pose show hillary clinton came out of the democratic convention with a significant bounce. a cnn/orc poll finds clinton has opened up a nine-point lead on donald trump, 52% to 43% for support jumping seven points since before the convention while his dropped five. meanwhile the new cbs poll shows clinton leading by seven points. 46% to 39%. but last night trump said he is not concerned. >> you know, it's always embarrassing to me, they say, and it's been proven in the primaries, i go into a primary that said it's going to be close i win by a landslide. it's a little embarrassing. people don't want to say they're going to vote for me but then they get in the booth they say, is anybody looking? is anybody -- boom. i'm taking trump. going to bring back our jobs! >> and trump took offense to
suggestions yesterday that he did not know that russia had sent troops into crimea in 2014. on twitter he wrote, quote, when i said in an interview that putin is not going in to ukraine, you can mark it down, i am saying, if i am president. already in crimea! so with all of the obama tough talk on russia and ukraine, they have already taken crimea and continued to push that's what i said. and then he said more on the trail. >> the press is very dishonest, okay? as an example i gave a very good answer over the weekend to one of the shows on russia. going in to the ukraine. i said very simply, they're not going to do it on my watch. essentially. i said russia will not go in to the ukraine. but a couple of papers said, donald trump doesn't realize that the crimea was already taken. i know -- two years ago approximately. okay, approximately. it was taken during obama's watch. so when i said, believe me,
russia's not going in to ukraine. all right? they're not going in to ukraine. the person said but they're already in ukraine. i said yeah well that was two years ago. that's -- i mean, do you want to go back? you want to have world war iii to get it back? >> on the stump yesterday, trump also went after "the new york times" suggesting he might revoke their credentials to his events as he does done recently after critical coverage from "the washington post." >> "the new york times" is totally dishonest. totally dishonest. "the washington post" gotten a little bit better lately. i took away their press credentials. i should do it with the "times." problem is you get more publicity, just let them rot. every story they write is a hit job. i could do the greatest thing in the history of the world. i could come up with a cure for the most horrible disease in the world, and they'd give me a front page horrible, horrible story.
i call it the failing "new york times" because it won't be in business for another probably more than a few years. but "the new york times" is so unfair. i mean they write three, four articles about me a day. no matter how good i do on something they'll never write good. i mean they don't write good. they have people over there like maggie haberman and others. they don't know how to write good. >> at the top of their front page this morning the "times" has a story on trump's five draft deferments that kept him out of military service during vietnam. four for college, one medical deferment for bone spurs in his heels. despite a near perfect medical record and actively participating in football, tennis, squash and golf. in an interview trump told the "times" that the bone spurs had been temporary and minor. quote i had a doctor that gave me a letter, a very strong letter on the heels. the newspaper claims he did not provide a copy of that letter after repeated requests. billionaire ceo and hillary clinton supporter warren buffett took to the campaign trail in his hometown of omaha, challenging trump to release his tax returns.
>> now i've got news for him, i'm under audit, too. and i would be delighted to meet him any place, any time between now and election, i'll bring my tax returns, he can bring his tax return, nobody's going to arrest us, it is not -- there are no rules against showing your tax returns, and just let people ask us questions about the items that are on there. as you probably know, while nebraska is deep red, president obama actually won omaha's congressional district in 2008 picking up its one electoral vote. cnbc's nancy hungerford joins us now live from london. i'm curious, nancy, what does the business world make of billionaires like mark cuban and warren buffett entering this fray? >> well, chris, that's right. it's a bit of a battle of the billionaires brewing up over the race for the white house, and you raise an important question, because when it comes to warren buffett specifically, he does generate a lot of trust.
he has earned the reputation as the oracle of omaha and that's not just down to his frugal demeanor, his likable appearance, but it's also his business record over the years, at 85 years, when warren buffett speaks, people tend to listen. so specifically the comments coming out yesterday about donald trump's business record in which warren buffett said look if a monkey had thrown a dart at a stock page he could have had better rurns than donald trump did on some of his property investments. you have to wonder what impact that has when donald trump over and over again uses his own business record to trump up his record and saying just how effective he could be as president. so you can imagine people are listening, but overall investors will be watching the polls. because at the end of the day, they want to back a winner so yes they will take this message to heart, but keep in mind donald trump has managed to bring a lot of billionaire backers on to his side as well, blackrock ceo among them so the battle will continue but at the end of the day wall street wants to back a winner. chris, back to you.
>> nancy hungerford live from london. thank you. well, hillary clinton campaigned in omaha it was a homecoming event for her running mate senator tim kaine. kaine held his first solo rally yesterday in richmond, virginia, where he was mayor from 1998 until 2001. he told the crowd speaking at last week's democratic national convention was nothing compared to this speech, which he used to thank the city. >> this speech is harder. this speech is harder. how do i sum up, and then give thanks for 32 years of friendship in rba? so everything i know, everything i've learned through doing some things right and doing some things wrong and then getting better at everything i know and everything i've learned, i've learned from you. >> the fight against isis meantime expanding in a battlefield far away from the front lines of syria and iraq. the u.s. military is stepping up airstrikes against the terror group in libya. it's centered around the city of
serta which militants have controlled since early last year. the american involvement came at the request of libya's un-backed government which has been targeting the militants from several sides. while there are small groups of american special forces on the ground there are no plans for any large-scale deployment. and still ahead, hillary clinton heading back to hollywood for some fund-raising help from one of the city's brightest stars. we'll tell you who when "way too early" comes right back. ♪

it's looking like it's mostly going to be a storm from belize, the yucatan of mexico and southern portions of mexico into the southern gulf. this does not look like it has time to become a big, huge storm. it does look like it should be a tropical storm by the end of day, and then by tomorrow night heading into the yucatan of mexico or belize. a lot of our computer models are taking it in that general direction. none of them threatening alone the texas coastline. we can avoid what will eventually be tropical storm earl. most likely later on this morning or this afternoon. the other story out there we've had some flash flooding problems on and off over the last couple of days. we're going to watch new mexico and arizona. this is their monsoonal type season where they get the moisture flowing up from the south here. they get afternoon showers and thunderstorms. the desert terrain and hillyness, most areas of runoff get quickly into flash flooding conditions. increasing moisture in the southwest. threat for some heavy rain. not anything too great. widespread rain it will not be. it will be very isolated.
