7:07 am

7:09 am
tiv atprsuine illegal as bernie and elizabeth think we should do, or should private insurance be an option f people who still want to provide insurance at work and get insurance at work. >> really quickly, who else do you think had a good night? >> i think mayor pete had a pretty good night. frankly, i think one of the easons joe biden didn't meet expectations is because all of the candidates were pretty damn good. i maybe shouldn't say that on morning tv. apologize to all the parents out there. >> wash urmouth out with soap. >> i'm going to see this glass as half full, as long as it doesn't get too personal. if itoes, voters will react. what we saw over the la two nights is we have a lot of strong candidates to take out the mess in the oval office. >> senator claire mccaskill, thank you very much. breaking overnight, president trump sitting down with russia's vladimir putin on the sidelines of the g-20 summit. it was their first meeting since the end of the mueller investigation, and president trump raised some eyebrows with
