hillary clinton, that's the kind of election year we're watching, ladies and gentlemen. you don't see these every four years. that's going to do it for us tonight. "way too early" is up next. hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the second amendment. by the way, and if she gets to pick -- if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is, i don't know. >> donald trump tries to clean up his latest controversy. this time what some interpreted as an assassination joke against hillary clinton. even the secret service says they're watching this one. plus donald trump wants to expand electoral map but new polls show he's having trouble defending his home turf.
2:01 am
the latest numbers from four key swing states. >> and golden once again. michael phelps gets redemption against a rival proving revenge is a dish best served in the pool. it's 5:00 a.m. on the east coast, 2:00 a.m. out west, this is "way too early." there's wake-up music for you. good morning, everybody. it's tuesday, august 10th, i'm betty nguyen alongside louis burgdorf. on the campaign trail yesterday an outcry over what many read as a threat that donald trump was accused of making against hillary clinton. listen for yourself. >> hillary wants to abolish essentially abolish the second amendment. by the way, and if she gets to pick -- [ audience boos ] >> if she gets to pick her
2:02 am
judges, nothing you can do, folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is, i don't know. but -- but i'll tell you what, that will be a horrible day. >> now the reaction was swift. the secret service tweeted they were aware of the comments. clinton's campaign manager said this is simple, what trump is saying is dangerous. a person seeking to be the president of the united states should not suggest violence in any way. u.s. senator chris murphy of connecticut added don't treat this as a political misstep it's an assassination threat, seriously upping the possibility of a national tragedy and crisis. the trump campaign responded with a statement, quote, on dishonest media. it's called the power of unification. second amendment people have an amazing spirit and are tremendously unified which gives them great political power, and this year they will be voting in record numbers and it won't be for hillary clinton, it will be for donald trump. trump retweeted support from the nra which posted donald trump is
2:03 am
right, if hillary clinton gets to pick her anti-second amendment supreme court judges there's nothing we can do. the candidate himself spoke up in interviews last night. >> well, i think you're talking about, i'm not sure because i haven't heard this question, but i think you're talking about the power of people that are in favor of the second amendment, and they have tremendous political power, and i think they really are strong, they're united, and in fact, the national rifle association just came out and they agreed that that is absolutely the way they feel, too. the second amendment people have tremendous power because they're so united. >> i've seen statements from democrats so far who've equated it to condoning violence. not what that was? >> oh, no, no, this is political power. >> obviously you're saying that there's a strong political movement within the second amendment, and if people mobilize and vote, they can stop hillary from having this impact on the court. but that's not how the media is spinning it. what's your reaction to it?
2:04 am
>> well, i just heard about that. and it was amazing, because nobody in that room thought anything other than what you just said. this is a political movement. this is a strong, powerful movement, the second amendment. you know, hillary wants to take your guns away. she wants to leave you unprotected in your home. this is a tremendous political movement. there can be no other interpretation. even reporters have told me, i mean give me a break. >> all right so just there you heard donald trump say that no one in the room thought anything other than him talking about political power. though an audience member sitting right behind the candidate found trump's comments worthy of this reaction mouthing whoa to the woman sitting next to him. as donald trump made his controversial remarks in wilmington, yesterday, his running mate governor mike pence was on the stump in pennsylvania, where he said this. >> just have to tell you, donald trump just gets it. you know what i'm saying? when he does his talk and he doesn't go tiptoeing around those thousands of rules of
2:05 am
political correctness that the establishment places in the way. >> once pence was offstage a reporter read trump's comments to him. governor pence said trump was very clear in that he was talking about the elections in accordance to the constitution. >> electing donald trump as the next president of the united states will ensure that we'll have a president that will make appointments to the supreme court that will uphold all the liberties enshrined in our constitution including the second amendment. >> you don't believe that he was inferring any violence relating to hillary clinton? >> of course -- of course not, no. donald trump is urging people around this country to act in a manner consistent with their convictions in the course of this election. and people who cherish the second amendment have a very clear choice in this election. >> other people heard trump's comments differently, including former cia director retired general michael hayden. who recently signed a letter with 49 other republican national security officials saying trump would put the country at risk.
2:06 am
>> if someone else had said that outside the hall, he'd be in the back of a police wagon now with the secret service questioning him. i tell my seniors at cia you get to a certain point in this business you're not just responsible for what you say, you are responsible for what people hear. that might be a good lesson here. >> democrats also condemned trump's remarks. senator elizabeth warren tweeted donald trump makes death threats because he's a pathetic coward who can't handle the fact that he's losing to a girl. adding your reckless comments sound like a two-bit dictator. donald trump not a man who wants to lead the greatest democracy on the planet. and after campaigning in austin, texas, yesterday, vice presidential candidate tim kaine shared his disbelief and disgust. >> i really, frankly, couldn't believe he said it. and so i went to watch the video of it, and found that he had said it exactly the way it was printed. it just revealed a sort of a complete temperamental misfit with the character that's
2:07 am
required to do the job. a slew of new swing state polls shows a battleground map that is getting harder for donald trump to expand. in the latest quinnipiac poll things are close in florida with clinton up just one point 46 to 45. they're close in ohio as well with clinton leading by just four points, 49 to 45. the new nbc news/"wall street journal" maris poll shows her up by five but pennsylvania, a place trump is trying to steal, clinton has stretched her lead to ten in the quinnipiac poll. she's grown her lead there to 11 according to the marist poll and in iowa clinton leads by four points 41 to 37. and one more poll to show you this one out of kansas. the ksn poll shows donald trump leading clinton by just five points. that's a swing six points in clinton's favor since july. house speaker paul ryan easily defeated his challenger in the republican primary last night. he walked away with 84% of the
2:08 am
vote. paul nehlen took just 18%. instead of holding a victory rally, ryan bought volunteers cheese curds and beer, sounds pretty good. nehlen had been courting donald trump supporters. his bid to unseat ryan gained attention after trump praised him on the campaign trail. trump eventually endorsed ryan but not before creating a flap within the party and speaking to reporters after his win last night ryan called for leadership that unites the country. >> in times as uncertain as these it is easy to resort to division. it's simple to prey on people's fears. that stuff sells, but it doesn't stick. it doesn't last. most of all it doesn't work. around here, we look beyond the noise and the static. >> what we have accomplished here tonight is historic beyond words and measure, because we have lit the spark of a raging
2:09 am
fire of righteous populism that will lift up the spirit of this nation. as a result of our campaign, people know where ryan stands. the mask has been pulled off, the charade is over, sentiment behind the smirk has been revealed. the con is up. >> according to nbc's kelly o'donnell as of 10:00 p.m. last night nehlen had yet to call to concede. hillary clinton mean while campaigned with representative debbie wasserman schultz in florida yesterday lending her unequivocal support for the former dnc chair. >> i'm here today with a very simple message. i can't think of anyone who deserves your support for re-electi re-election, starti ining with primary on august 30th, than my friend debbie. and i am committed to doing whatever i can to support her as she returns to the congress, with your support by her side.
2:10 am
because we have a lot of work to do. >> becauwasserman schultz tweete was honored to have clinton stop by. she could be in a tough primary. wasserman schultz stepped down amid the scandal amid e-mails posted by wikileaks that seemed to pro-preferen shum treatment for clinton. republican senator kelly ayotte of new hampshire says she still plants to support donald trump though it's not officially an endorsement. that's despite trump's delayed enforce hadn't for her and pressure from fellow republicans like susan collins who says she won't be voting for trump. >> i've come to the ines capable conclusion that there is no new donald trump. that he is incapable of change and growth. he is incapable of apologizing, of saying that he was wrong. his lack of empathy and compassion for a family who lost
2:11 am
a son in combat is really telling. >> i have great respect for senator collins, in fact she and i have worked together on a number of important issues. and i think each person has to make their own decision as to whether they're -- who they're going to support for the presidential ticket. >> the fight against zika has made its way to the campaign trail with florida's republican governor rick scott and hillary clinton both urging congress to act. on tuesday, governor scott announced four new home grown cases of zika. likely contracted from mosquitoes in the wynwood neighborhood of miami. that brings the number of locally acquired cases in florida to 21. governor scott called out congress' inaction on zika funding saying quote every day that passes hinders our national response to zika. this is not only an issue affecting us here in florida, it
2:12 am
is a national issue. and while touring a medical center in miami, hillary clinton joined the governor in urging congress to return from summer recess arely. >> i am very disappointed that the congress went on recess before actually agreeing on what they would do to put the resources into this fight. and i really am hoping that they will pay attention. in fact i would very much urge the leadership of congress to call people back for a special session and get a bill passed. get a bill that is focused on combatting zika passed. >> a blistering new report by the justice department has found the baltimore police department engages in racially biased practices. with the city's officers routinely violating citizens' constitutional rights. the findings, which will officially be announced later this morning, show officers regularly stop, search, and even arrest african-american
2:13 am
residents. sometimes using excessive force without justification. one example included an african-american man in his 50s who was stopped 30 times in under four years. none of those incidents resulted in a criminal charge or even a ticket. the probe which comes from freddie gray's death while in police custody last year involved more than six years of records. it found shortages in training policies and supervision that did not give officers the tools needed to do their jobs effectively, and within the bounds of federal law. now to missouri, a peaceful protest for the second anniversary of the fatal police shooting of michael brown reportedly turned violent last night. police had ordered a small group of protesters to clear the street, but then in video provided to nbc news a car appears to strike one person in the crowd. moments after the person was hit, what sounds like gunshots begin. >> oh, god.
2:14 am
oh! oh! somebody's shooting! somebody's shooting! oh, my god! >> frightening scene no doubt. michael brown was shot and killed by a police officer leading to weeks of unrest in that community. still ahead we're also following the violence out of chicago this morning. the warning from the chicago police department about plots to attack officers. and he's doing prison time for trying to get something in return for president obama's old senate seat. former illinois governor rod blagojevich wanted his sentence reduced. we'll have the judge's decision. and california currently in its fifth straight year of historic drought could be facing one of its worst fire seasons on record. we'll have the latest on the blaze that's already forced some schools to close. those stories and a check of the weather when "way too early" comes right back. she spent summer binge-watching.

2:33 am
now trump tweeted med yeah desperate to distract from clinton's anti- -- anti-distance -- i -- all right. we're having a little bit of problems here. the trump campaign responded with a statement saying, quote, on dishonest media. it's called the power of unification. second amendment people have an amazing spirit and are tremendously unified which gives them great political power, and this year they will be voting in record numbers and it won't be for hillary clinton, it will be for donald trump. trump retweeted support from the nra which posted donald trump is right, if hillary clinton gets to pick her anti-second amendment supreme court judges there's nothing we can do. the candidate himself spoke up in interviews last night. >> well, i think you're talking about, i'm not sure because i haven't heard this question, but i think you're talking about the power of people that are in favor of the second amendment, and they have tremendous political power, and i think they really are strong, they're united, and in fact, the
2:34 am
national rifle association just came out and they agreed that that is absolutely the way they feel, too. the second amendment people have tremendous power because they're so united. >> i've seen statements from democrats so far who've equated it to condoning violence. not what that was? >> oh, no, no, this is political power. >> obviously you're saying that there's a strong political movement within the second amendment, and if people mobilize and vote, they can stop hillary from having this impact on the court. but that's not how the media is spinning it. what's your reaction to it? >> well, i just heard about that. and it was amazing, because nobody in that room thought anything other than what you just said. this is a political movement. this is a strong, powerful movement, the second amendment. you know, hillary wants to take your guns away. she wants to leave you unprotected in your home. this is a tremendous political movement. there can be no other interpretation. even reporters have told me, i mean give me a break.
2:35 am
>> as donald trump made his controversial remarks in wilmington his running mate mike pence was on the stump in pennsylvania where he says this. >> i just have to tell you, donald trump just gets it. you know what i'm saying? when he does his talking he doesn't go tiptoeing around those thousands of rules of political correctness. that the establishment places in the way. >> once pence was offstage a reporter read trump's comments to him. governor pence said trump was very clear in what he was talking about, the election's importance to the constitution. >> electing donald trump as the next president of the united states will ensure that we'll have a president that will make appointments to the supreme court that will uphold all the liberties enshrined in our constitution including the second amendment. >> you don't believe that he was inferring any violence relating to hillary clinton? >> of course -- of course not, no. donald trump is urging people around this country to act in a manner consistent with their convictions in the course of this election.
2:36 am
and people who cherish the second amendment have a very clear choice in this election. meanwhile conservative author ann coulter tweeted i just woke from a nap to an all-new fake media scandal about trump. he's joking about assassinating hillary saying number one, it wasn't about assassination, and number two the media's trying to get trump assassinated by incessantly calling him hitler. shortly after winning his primary last night republican house speaker paul ryan gave trump the benefit of the doubt. >> i've been a little busy today. i heard about this second amendment quote. it sounds like just a joke gone bad. i hope he clears it up very quickly. you should never joke about something like that. i didn't actually hear the comments. i only heard about those comments. >> now surrogates also came out to defend trump, including rudy giuliani, congressman duncan hunter, and even nonsupporter susan collins of maine. >> what he said very clearly was that if hillary clinton were elected president, she would get to appoint judges to the supreme court, and among the other
2:37 am
things that they would do to destroy us, would be to do away with the second amendment and your right to bear arms. and then he said, and you have the power to do something about it. and what he meant by that was, you have the power to vote against her. you have the power -- you have the power to campaign against her. you have the power to speak against her. you know why? because you're americans! >> you're treating mr. trump's words like he is the most articulate person who's ever graced our ears with his words. and that is not true. he is not a politician. he is not a person like you, who's very articulate, very well spoken. i think he can be inarticulate at times. he is a business person and he misspeaks a lot because he doesn't speak for a living. >> i've been very critical of donald trump, but i actually don't think that's what he was saying. i think he was suggesting that
2:38 am
the second amendment advocates across the country might be able to come together to pressure the senate to reject her nominees should she become president. that's how i interpreted it. but, it is an example of donald trump's looseness when language that can lead to interpretations that such as the one put out by secretary clinton's camp. >> other people heard trump's comments differently, including former cia director retired general michael hayden who recently signed a letter with 49 other republican national security officials saying trump would put the country at risk. >> if someone else had said that outside the hall, he'd be in the back of a police wagon now with the secret service questioning him. i tell my seniors at cia you get to a certain point in this business you're not just responsible for what you say, you are responsible for what
2:39 am
people hear. that might be a good lesson here. >> democrats also condemned trump's remarks. senator elizabeth warren tweeted donald trump makes death threats because he's a pathetic coward who can't handle the fact that he's losing to a girl. adding your reckless comments sound like a two-bit dictator. donald trump not a man who wants to lead the greatest democracy on the planet. and after campaigning in austin, texas, yesterday, vice presidential candidate tim kaine shared his disbelief and disgust. >> i really, frankly, couldn't believe he said it. and so i went to watch the video of it, and found that he had said it exactly the way it was printed. it just revealed a sort of a complete temperamental misfit with the character that's required to do the job. >> now the clinton campaign is responding after the father of the orlando nightclub shooter was spotted at an event this week. seddique mateen was seen sitting almost directly behind clinton during a rally in florida on monday. when asked by the nbc affiliate

whether the campaign knew he would be in attendance he responded, it's a democratic party so everyone can join. the clinton campaign later released a statement saying the rally was a 3,000 person open door event for the public. this individual wasn't invited as a guest, and the campaign was unaware of his attendance until after the event. the incident has both donald trump and his running mate mike pence weighing in yesterday. >> yesterday at a rally outside orlando, florida, the father of the very radical islamic terrorist who murdered 49 americans, attended the rally, was on television through most of the rally sitting behind hillary clinton. and he said he was there because he supports hillary clinton because she's quote, good on national security. now the media's not talking about that, i expect, because hillary clinton's been a disaster on national security and on the foreign stage. >> -- disavow, and if that were me, this would be a headline all over the world about trump, but
2:41 am
she did not, as i understand it, disavow this man, and he's got some pretty harsh views. so i think it's, look, it's a whole double standard but we're punching through it and i think the people understand. >> and late last night a spokesperson for the clinton campaign released another statement on mateen saying hillary clinton disagrees with his views and disavows his support. >> all right, betty, let's turn now to business. intel is making a big bet on artificial intelligence with its latest purchase. cnbc's louisa bojesen joins us live from london. louisa, good morning. >> good morning, louis. yeah, not a very big player in ai as of yet but one might be forgiven in thinking that they're heading in that direction. it looks that way. they're buying nirvana now, a start-up that essentially specializes in artificial intelligence and intel has been very up front. they want two things. one they want nirvana's expertise to boost their own a.i. performance and in particular we're talking about the xeon processors and two they
2:42 am
want to know more about artificial intelligence as a lot of companies do. it's a big area in tech in the future. so the other thing is that it could be cushioning them against the likes of inindividual yeah, the graphics firm that's been very aggressive. they're pushing a.i. in areas like driverless cars. intel is one you're going to want to watch. disney, slightly better than expected figures coming through from this giant, we're looking at their earnings for the third quarter of $1.62 per share on 14.25 billion dollars in revenue. they're benefiting from what they say is a strong performance of their films, including "captain america: civil war" and finding dori, movies i haven't seen yet. they made some very big announcements, talking about including an over-the-top streaming service for their directv and also taking a minority stake in b.a.m. tech with an option of increasing their ownership there, as well. so two companies to keep outlook on louis.
