tv   Way Too Early  MSNBC  August 8, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
remember, if it's sunday, it's "meet the press." i have said on -- during the interview, and on many other occasions over the past months, that what i told the fbi, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what i have said publicly. so i may have short-circuited, and for that i, you know, will try to clarify. >> in front of some friendly reporters, they asked her a very easy question. and she short-circuited. she used the term short-circuited. she took a literally short circuit in the brain, and she's got problems. >> donald trump has a new line of attack after hillary clinton finds herself on defense again
2:01 am
when it comes to her private e-mail server. >> plus a-rod gets emotional after announcing he will play his final game for the yankees this week. and while there won't be any more at-bats for him, he's not leaving the team just yet. and new overnight an explosion hits a hospital in pakistan. at least one government official is calling the attack an act of terrorism. it's 5:00 a.m. on the east coast, 2:00 a.m. out west, this is "way too early." good morning, everybody, it is monday, august 8th. i'm betty nguyen alongside louis burgdorf. we do have some breaking news overnight. two professors at the american university of afghanistan have been abducted in kabul. a senior official at the university tells nbc news the professor's, one american and
2:02 am
one australian were sitting together in their vehicle when it happened. so let's bring in nbc news correspondent matt bradley live in london. what more do we know about the situation? >> thanks, betty. as you mentioned we've got more news out of afghanistan last night. two of these foreigners, an australian and american were kidnapped last night in kabul in the western part of the city. this is the afghan capital. this from a senior official with the american university of afghanistan. as we just mentioned the two men were taken by unknown armed commandos, some reports saying that these armed commandos were wearing police or military uniforms and they were taken while they sat waiting in their car, after their evening classes. the university did tell nbc news that it had closed for the day, and will likely remain closed until the situation is resolved. and as you know, betty, such incidents in afghanistan are, of course, tragically common. foreigners in particular make for a very tempting target. multiple foreigners have been kidnapped in the past several years. most of them have been released after they've received ransom payment. and this isn't just the taliban. this is often armed gangs who
2:03 am
are doing this sort of thing. just this past week a convoy of foreign tourists was attacked during their visit to the western city of herat. several were injured but no fatalities. >> we'll continue to follow this. thank you so much for that. also some breaking news this morning. at least 50 people have been reportedly killed and dozens injured in a bomb explosion at a pakistani hospital in the town of quetta. a senior official tells the associated press the bomb went off as people gathered to mourn the death of a prominent lawyer who was slain earlier in the day. pakistan's prime minister has denounced the attack, offering his grief and anguish over the loss of life. so far no group has claimed responsibility. we will bring you more details as we get them. now to politics and two separate interviews last week hillary clinton claimed fbi director james comey described her public statements about her e-mail server as truthful. >> director comey said that my answers were truthful and what i've said is consistent with what i have told the american people. as the fbi said, everything that
2:04 am
i've said public has been consistent and truthful with what i told them. >> but fact checkers found comey had said no such thing. at a convention of hispanic and black journalists clinton was forced to confront her claims and offered this explanation. >> are you mischaracterizing director comey's testimony? and is this not undercutting your for thes to rebuild trust with the american people? >> i was pointing out on -- in both of those instances, that the director comey had said that my answers in my fbi interview were truthful. that's really the bottom line here. and i have said during the interview, and in many other occasions over the past months, that what i told the fbi, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what i have said publicly. so i may have short-circuited and for that i, you know, will try to clarify. because i think, you know, chris wallace and i were probably
2:05 am
talking past each other. because, of course, he could only talk to what i had told the fbi, and i appreciated that. but i do think, you know, having him say that my answers to the fbi were truthful, and then i should quickly add, what i said was consistent with what i had said publicly. and that's really sort of, in my view, trying to tie both ends together. director comey said there was absolutely no intention on my part to either ignore, or in any way dismiss the importance of those documents, because they weren't marked classified. >> donald trump seized on clinton's attempt at clarification, posting to twitter, anybody whose mind short-circuits is not fit to be our president. look up the worth brainwashed. trump continued to go after clinton at events this weekend with withering attacks.
2:06 am
>> unstable, hillary clinton, and you saw that. you saw that, where she basically short-circuited? she said she did -- it wasn't a press conference, because that's around 250 days. but it was in front of some friendly reporters, they asked her a very easy question, and she short-circuited. she used the term short-circuited. she took a literally short-circuit in the brain, and she's got problems. i mean, if we had real people this would be a real problem for her. but i think that the people of this country don't want somebody that's going to short-circuit up here. hillary clinton made reported false statements to the media, congress and the public, right? false statement number one, this stuff is so amazing, it amazes me, actually. honestly, i don't think she's
2:07 am
all there. remember, isis is looking, folks. they dream of hillary clinton. they look at her, and they say this can't be happening to us. how great is this? now you tell me she looks presidential, folks. i look presidential. you tell me -- you tell me she looks presidential. they are just watching and they're looking, and boy they're salivating. they're salivating. they're saying that's what we want. oh, that's what we want. >> now donald trump is set to focus in on policy, giving a speech in detroit today on winning the global competition for the economy. he's expected to talk about reforming energy policy, regulation, trade, and the tax code, including an idea to allow parents to fully deduct the cost of all child care expenses. now it comes at a time when
2:08 am
trump is struggling in the latest wave of polling. in "the washington post"/abc news poll clinton now leads by eight points. 50 to 42. she's doubled her lead since before the republican convention. the margin remains the same when accounting for third party candidates. and while both candidates are upside down on favorability, clinton's unfavorables are at their smallest margin since january. meanwhile the poll shows voters universally were unimpressed with donald trump's comments about the khan family who appeared during the dnc. 74% of all voters disapprove of his approach including 61% of republicans. bad headlines, as you just saw, even worse poll numbers, donald trump is blasting the media yet again tweeting, quote, the media is going crazy. they totally distort so many things on purpose, crimea, and nuclear, the baby, and souch more, very dishonest. the baby presumably refers to the kricrying infant that gave trump a bit of a headache at a
2:09 am
rally last week. and trump had this to say at a rally on friday. >> i gently tell a woman that i love her baby and let the baby cry, it's okay. but after about three or four minutes, and i'm trying to speak, and it was in jacksonville, we had this massive, massive crowd, filled up a stadium. and the baby is screaming. so i said, ma'am, i'd like to reverse my order, perhaps you can nicely take the baby out. your baby's -- i did it so nicely. she was happy. even the baby was happy, he stopped crying. and the next day in the newspaper, it said trump throws baby out of arena. terrible. now they're very dishonest. >> we're following a developing story this morning. delta airlines is confirming a systemwide computer outage, as passengers try to check in. the airline responded to customers on twitter just a short time ago saying unfortunately all flights are grounded due to a system outage nationwide. this photo was snapped by
2:10 am
twitter user ghost dog 310 at the airport in rome, italy, showing a cluster of customers waiting to check in. we'll bring you more details on this as they develop. meanwhile, iran says it has executed a nuclear scientists convicted of spying for the united states. the official news agency quoted an iranian judiciary spokesman announcing that he was executed for giving the enemy vital information. but did not say where or when the execution took place. amiri disappeared in saudi arabia back in 2009. he resurfaced a year later in online videos filmed in the usa. iran pushed his claim that he'd been abducted by u.s. and saudi agents but in 2010 the ap reported citing u.s. officials that he had been paid about $5 million for information about iran's nuclear program though he reportedly left the country without the money. he returned to iran several months after his u.s. arrival where he was celebrated before mysteriously disappearing again.
2:11 am
amiri's situation appeared in e-mails released by hillary clinton as part of investigations into her use of a private server while she was secretary of state. back here in the u.s. a kansas city, kansas, amusement park remains closed today as officials investigate the death of a 10-year-old boy on a water slide billed as the world's largest. caleb schwab, the son of state representative scott schwab died yesterday at the water park. reffive schwab and his wife released a statement that reads in part michelle and i want to thank the community and all of our friends and family for their outpouring of support and compassion as it relates to the sudden loss of our son. officials have not provided specific details about what exactly happened. the ride, though, opened in july 2014, it holds three riders in an inner tube that drops more than 160 feet at 65 miles per hour. the park requires riders be at least 4 1/2 feet tall. still ahead on "way too early," the olympic games have just begun, but russia has already suffered a humiliating loss.

stolen vehicle. >> a lot of people are upset by what they saw, and quite honestly they have a right to be upset. >> reporter: chicago police superintendent eddie johnson speaking out for the first time. >> i was concerned by some of the things that i saw in the videos, and that's why we took such a swift action. >> reporter: unprecedented swift action from a police department under fire, and under federal investigation for prior shootings. while the department acted quickly in releasing the video, several officers appear to fire in the direction of each other, and a police suv, while shooting at o'neal. the moments before the shooting, and after, caught on video. but not the shooting itself. a police source says the officer who fired that fatal shot turned on his camera after he fired. police say what happened to that camera is being investigated. >> i don't believe that story. i think we need to investigate more.

2:20 am

phelps helped lead the american men to victory in rio last night and takes home his 19th gold medal in the process. it is 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. 2:00 a.m. out west. this is "way too early." good morning, it's monday, august the 8th. i'm louis burgdorf alongside betty nguyen. we want to take you back to a major developing story this morning. delta airlines is facing a global systemwide computer outage as passengers try to check in. let's go to cnbc's luisa bojesen live from london. what are you hearing? >> well, it sounds like it's pretty messy out there from what we know so for. important to say delta have put out a statement. they're saying delta has experienced a computer outage,
2:32 am
that's impacted flight schedules for this morning. flights awaiting departure are currently delayed, they say, en route flights are operating normally. delta is advising travelers to check the status of their flights this morning while the issue is being addressed. so that's the latest that we have from delta. but as said, all flights are grounded because of this outage that's taking place globally. we know that it is messy because we can see the pictures that people are putting up on twitter. social media once again coming to the rescue in terms of telling you what's going on out there. on twitter, a picture of lots of people queueing. says one hour plus lines at heathrow, airport, for delta due to a system tage. heathrow #holdschoolmanualticketing. amanda jackson, another twitterer who puts up chaos trying to check in at delta. at heathrow terminal 3. here just outside of london. she says they've been in a queue
2:33 am
for 1 1/2 hour. you seriously need to open more desks to overcome this technical glitch. people posting from all over the world, though, we have twitter users posting photos from london, from italy, as well. passengers reporting delays at airports including, as said, london heathrow, tokyo, and los angeles. so this is something that delta no doubt is working very hard on and we'll keep you abreast on the latest developments. >> thanks so much. breaking news overnight to tell you about. two professors at the american university of afghanistan have been abducted in kabul. a senior official at the university tells nbc news the professors, one american and one australian were sitting in their vehicle when it happened. let's bring in nbc news correspondent matt bradley who is live for us in london. all right, matt, what more do we know about this situation? >> thanks, betty. as you know, kidnapping is an all too common occurrence in afghanistan and foreigners do make for a very tempting target. and last night it was two foreigners, as you mentioned, one australian, and one american, they were reported
2:34 am
kidnapped in the afghan capital of kabul. both of them were employees of the american university of afghanistan. the university confirmed the news. we got that from a senior official this news of their abduction. the two men were taken by unknown armed commandos, as they sat waiting in a car after evening classes. the associated press says that the commandos were dressed as military or police officials. the university told nbc news that it was closed for the day, and will likely remain closed until this situation is resolved. and as i mentioned, these sorts of kidnappings are common. and they're often perpetrated by armed men, wearing police or military uniforms. and the taliban has played a large role in some of these kidnappings. but many of them really are just ordinary criminals, seeking a ransom. all three foreigners kidnapped in the past year have since been released, and just this past week a convoy of foreign tourists was attacked during their visit to the western city of herat. several were injured but there were no fatalities.
2:35 am
in that case it was the taliban that claimed responsibility. betty? >> all right, matt, thank you so much for that update. donald trump is set to focus in on policy, giving a speech in detroit today on winning the global competition for the economy. he's expected to talk about reforming energy policy, regulation, trade, and the tax code, including an idea to allow parents to fully deduct the cost of all child care expenses. it comes at a time when trump is struggling in the latest wave of polling. in "the washington post"/abc news poll clinton now leads by eight points 50 to 42. she's doubled her lead since before the republican convention. the margin remains the same when accounting for third party candidates. and while both candidates are upside down on favorability, clinton's unfavorables are at their smallest margin since january. meanwhile the poll shows voters universally were unimpressed with donald trump's comments about the khan family who spoke during the dnc. 74% of all voters disapprove of his approach, including 61% of
2:36 am
republicans. meanwhile, the cbs news 2016 battleground tracker shows hillary clinton with an eight-point lead in virginia. clinton is up two, but inside the margin of error in nevada. trump is hanging on to a two-point lead in arizona, a state where mitt romney won by ten points back in 2012. and when it comes to one of the grand prizes of the election, ohio governor john kasich, casts doubt that trump could win. >> can trump win ohio? >> can trump win ohio? he's going to win parts of ohio where people are really hurting. there will be sections he will win because people are angry, frustrated, and haven't heard any answers. but i still think it's difficult if you are dividing, to be able to win in ohio. >> is there any way that donald trump can change -- >> well, it's -- you know, there's so much water over the dam now it's become increasingly difficult. but i want, you know, unifying. you know, you can either operate on the dark side of the street, or you can -- you can operate in the light. i believe that america needs people who operate in the light.
2:37 am
plain and simple. >> in two separate interviews last week hillary clinton claimed fbi director james comey described her public statements about her e-mail server as truthful. >> director comey said that my answers were truthful, and what i've said is consistent with what i have told the american people. as the fbi said, everything that i've said publicly has been consistent and truthful with what i told them. >> but fact checkers found comey had said no such thing. at a convention of hispanic and black journalists clinton was forced to confront her claims, and offered this explanation. >> are you mischaracterizing director comey's testimony, and is this not undercutting your efforts to rebuild trust with the american people? >> i was pointing out, in both of those instances, that the director comey had said that my answers in my fbi interview were truthful. that's really the bottom line here. and i have said on -- during the
2:38 am
interview, and on many other occasions over the past months, that what i told the fbi, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what i have said publicly. so i may have short-circuited, and for that i, you know, will try to clarify because i think, you know, chris wallace and i were probably talking past each other, because of course he could only talk to what i had told the fbi, and i appreciated that. but i do think, you know, having him say that my answers to the fbi were truthful, and tn i should quickly add, what i said was consistent with what i had said publicly. and that's really sort of, in my view, trying to tie both ends together. director comey said there was absolutely no intention on my part to either ignore, or in any way dismiss the importance of
2:39 am
those documents, because they weren't marked classified. >> our very own kristen welker getting in that country. donald trump seized on clinton's attempt at a clarification posting to twitter anybody whose mind short-circuits is not fit to be our president. look up the word brainwashed. trump continued to go after clinton at his events this weekend with withering attacks. >> when you see what happened with crooked hillary today, it was a disaster. a disaster. she had a disaster. she lies, folks. she lies. badly. unstable, hillary clinton, and you saw that. did you saw that where she basically short circuited? she said she did -- it wasn't a press conference because that's around 250 days. but it was in front of some friendly reporters. they asked her a very easy question, and she short circuited. she used the herm short
2:40 am
