♪ >> welcome to this brand-new edition of the best of "with all due respect." donald trump going all in and declaring the election rigged. hillary clinton heading big on red states in the nation getting front row seats to take a stage show. the third and final presidential debate is over and the reviews are in -- the final match between trump a clinton was one for the history books. that is where we begin tonight. john: donald trump supernova of suspense the republican nominee walked off the debate since having created one mega galactic problem for himself when he refused to say he would accept
11:01 am
the result of the presidential election. here's every try to clean up the mess. >> i would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the united states, that i will totally accept the results of this great and historic election, if i win. of course, i would accept a clear election result but i would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable results. john: so, mark, with its effort today do you believe donald trump has put this matter behind him effectively? mark: he compounded one error with another first history will live on now in the absence of debates i don't expect any of the big news to occur he has created a second day problem by saying something that is almost
11:02 am
as offensive to people underneath seven layers of rhetoric he has a point but it is under seven layers of rhetoric. the way he has talked about this has offended people across the country. he only compounded his problems. john: the reality come we do not have a widespread problem of voter fraud. in the things that we have as many states with mandatory recount laws of the vote is close. he don't need to unveil yourself of those rights. one is not a problem the second one is handled. we have recount and
11:03 am
examinations. i don't understand why if you wanted to make the second point to say that i will make sure everything is legitimate here why did he need to say the first thing? the first thing the soundbite that will play forever i will accept if i win which is as you said is in some ways worse to what he said the night before. mark: he took a solid debate performance and undermined by this. i watched a lot of coverage last night it is all everyone is talking about. now, the storyline change tomorrow? maybe with this will linger in history and in the news cycle. john: to be clear there's a reason why it is lingering. republicans elected republicans currently in office and former republicans the former chair of the republican party said it was disqualifying. this is something no major party nominee has ever said or done before to suggest that they would not abide by the peaceful transfer of power. it is a huge abdication of a
11:04 am
basic democratic principle. we are not just being media freaks. mark: i said your leads can more about this than regular people and i think that is true. you lead to control the coverage and the political talk. people who really care about this and drive the coverage. john: no doubt about that. they care more about it but there were lots of normal americans were upset about this last night. mark: democrats have no intention of letting this issue go. after the debate, hillary clinton pater press corps a visit and dean donald trump remarks were fine.
11:05 am
today, some of her top surrogates twisted the knife more on the tv airwaves. >> if you question if you assert that a democratic election is fixed you are attacking the very essence of the notion of whether not we have a democratic system. >> after a campaign where he insulted everybody else now will insult the very central premise of our democracy was a huge shocker. president obama: when you try to show the seat of doubt in people's minds about the legitimacy of our elections that undermines our democracy. then, you're doing the work of our adversaries for them. our democracy depends people knowing that their vote matters. mark: they're plenty of republicans were critical of what trump said last sent including senator john mccain. before the debate last that we agreed that trump's chances were between slim and none. does the prospect of a hail mary come back now after what he said last night become more remote? john: last night's chances were between slim and none now slim is packing his bags. this is, again, there are many
11:06 am
days still. i don't will of the possibilities of cataclysmic thing happening. in the absence of that i think this thing is cooked. there's not a way. this was his last-ditch checked and is now spent one full day we just said he will spend more days now justifiably answering criticism for this crazy thing he said. mark: it is criticism and keeping him from having anything positive going on. it is keeping a from arguing that he actually won the debate. he lost the debate and one single remark. but the good been judged that way anyway. but, the reality is the polling data now has gotten worse. he has less time now and no other big events. the other thing, the perception is now more than ever. john: he needed to gain some new votes of the things he said last night do not gain him' it almost certainly lost them some vote. there are some who said i don't want that as my president. now the split in the republican party is even wider. you're calling into question the electoral system and don't want any part of that. mark: when they are angry at the press, they do not perform well. you said one thing that was completely out of bounds. john: you talk about why hillary clinton has the advantage because of the sara gets. they today think they have the boot on trump's throat and
11:07 am
pushing down hard now. >> more the best after these words from our sponsors. ♪

♪ >> you might have heard that last week in new hampshire and gave a speech. [cheers] >> let me just say, sense that my office has been flooded with thousands of letters and e-mails from folks all across the country. speaking out for the values of decency and respect that we all hold the dear, men of all backgrounds agreeing that we do not demean women. [cheers] >> we should not tolerate this behavior from any man let alone one that was to be the president. >> that was first lady michelle obama criticizing donald trump and every zone and not too long ago. the first lady was there were several power democratic ceric it's hammering donald trump. with us from the city of brotherly love is above the try to just kim and mike. mike, one of the things that it's been happening since last i went donald trump made this comment about not necessarily accepting the results of the election is that people on his
11:11 am
campaign out there in the country have been saying what is so bad about that? al gore contested that. given your close to vice president gore and part of this or explain to us whether they have a point or not. mike: they have a point but it is the wrong point. this is been well litigated today. 2000 was a disputed election. as you know, florida was under recount by law. nobody would doubt that it was good to go through every legal process they could to determine the will of the photo was honored by the process. again, when the highest court in the land weighed in and stop the recount al gore and plenty of people were encouraging vice president gore to pursue it further he not only graciously conceded the election but told everybody don't trash the court. there's a fine line between anarchy and a disputed supreme court decision. it was a good moment and what concerned me about last night about people using that example when in fact what mr. trump did last night was the very opposite of that graciousness. john: kim, it might everybody we stand with the nominee. are you voting for him? kim: i'll keep you in suspense. john: very good. [laughter] john: let's this program and in your phone rings and it is kellyanne conway on the speaker saying that mr. trump decided
11:12 am
that the debate answers not good he wants something new to put this behind us, what would you tell them to do? kim: stop trying to be so clever. the people were supporting him and disgruntled with washington in the system wants to hear that he takes it too far. i think that happened to him a couple of times in the debate last night. he has good gut instincts about what is going on in the hearts and minds of people, then tries to be too clever instead of just laying that out there. john: when you were watching the debate was a moment when hillary clinton, was talking about not paying taxes and he snapped at her and called her a nasty woman. i have women all day today who felt and read into that not just a snapping as but a kind of
11:13 am
misogyny that upset them. do you as a woman in republican woman when you heard that did you groan? what was your reaction? kim: a suburban pennsylvania voter. so, look, i think that i don't like the guy. i really don't. i think the people are getting their panties in a bunch over a lot of stuff. he says things in an incendiary way. but he treated her like any of the guy on the stage. if you're a woman in the business like i have been in a long time where there were no women i would've taken that as a complement not that i would want anyone to talk to me that way but i would have gotten so upset over that. i think the bulk of everything he has been talking about does turn them into a really big jerk. but, actions as well are important. there is some as actions have been pretty gross too. john: so if philip clinton calls you and his everybody says things are going well come to the headquarters tomorrow and interview everybody in the staff to make sure we're doing
11:14 am
everything we need to do who would you talk to? mike: i think they're doing a pretty good job. it was overshadowed last night by these comments that mr. trump made. she has got to start laying claim to the outcome of this election for selectica the election were tomorrow people would view as a total repudiation of her opponent and not a mandate for her. you saw her starting to do that last night to try to talk to independent moderate republicans and others for to know but he heard very much of it just because of the outcome of the debate. they need to think about how they will govern in addition to how they will turn out their boat. one thing, i agree with what you said of the substance, the debate does matter. preparation for debates matters. what this debate showed is that a lack of preparation and discipline which is troubling and a potential president. it is not like mr. trump didn't know there will be a question about his comments. every single member of his team was giving them a trail of breadcrumbs for that answer. yet, he still dominated the news the day after i make a comment that was clearly viewed out of bounds by people in his own party. >> i will ask you both the same question, michelle obama's down in arizona. the polls in texas are close, georgia, missouri, their places the clinton campaign is suddenly playing. today, do you think hillary clinton will win by -- what? mike: i don't know. >> this is the look like a
11:15 am
landslide? >> electorally, she'll have a very good night. her campaign methodically hesitant to fighting communicated with the voters. they have a pretty good idea who will show up as the trump campaign is less idea who will show up. what you saw took the campaign will do for the next few weeks which is sara gets, principles, everybody out there trying to energize. >> kim, if you are a
11:16 am
dispassionate viewer, do you feel a landslide? does this still feeling a tight election to you?
11:17 am
kim: i am loath to predict anything in this election because i was on six months ago i got everything wrong. i will lead with that caveat. i think we can't predict a landslide, it is sort of rigged on the what they don't work but it is with the electoral college leans democrat to begin with. but, i don't think this is a left right split anymore. this is a top of bottom split. how that plays out on election day will be new and different for all of us to look at. >> alike, is a good any chance donald trump wins pennsylvia >> i will keep you in suspense. [laughter] >> kim is taking a pass of a lot of questions today. thank you for being here today.

11:21 am
♪ >> welcome back, a lot going on politically today. here now with as a reporter from the washington post. a great story looking at donald trump's actions over the last couple of days and what they mean. do you think he is in a different place now in terms of rhetoric and his mental state? >> i do. i think he has been moving in this direction for some time. he is the setting to turn inward and speak directly to his base and talk a lot about dark conspiracies. he is giving away from the core messages that animated his campaign early on. that many republicans believe to give him a better chance to win the election focusing instead on things like the polls are rigged and corrupt in the media is biased.
11:22 am
even saying as he repeated again today that the election is going to be stolen adn that voter fraud is happening. it is a pretty dark turn. >> some of his advisors and that is great like that. they think it will help. he has other advisers saying you should be talking about the economy, change, hillary clinton as part of the problem. are there divisions? why is trump not listening? >> i think there are, and traditional strategists are deeply uncomfortable with the rhetorical direction that trump is taking. his getting many of his cues from the chief executive of the campaign and stephen miller his speechwriter as well. they are helping feed a lot of this to trump. that speech in florida on thursday night was really a thicket turning point but he
11:23 am
went full on with the global conspiracy and talked about the clinton campaign in the media the banks and multinational corporations all colluding in very dark ways to undermine this election. >> just explain what the theory of the case is of how this helps him win. it appeals to his base, but for those urging this they're doing this because they think it is the way to win. their world how to explain how this is the path to victory? >> there are two pieces, it is his base. he is saying things you think will galvanize and motivate these aggrieved white people many of them working class. there are more these people out there prepared to foot for donald trump than our polls indicating. people that have not participated in elections
11:24 am
before. he wants to give voters who might the going to the polls for hillary clinton a reason to think twice or feel uncomfortable about doing so or that something is wrong with the process or they'll be too much friction or tension at the polling places. i was talking to a former mayor of philadelphia today and he said this is his big fear in philadelphia that the trump campaign talking about voter fraud and urging supporters to go to the polling places could be an intimidating force and suppress the african-american vote in the city which would help donald trump. >> i wants to ask you about info wars if you are familiar with alex jones you seen trump repeated things from that and if there is that hillary clinton was on drugs at the last debate
11:25 am
which is straight out of the info wars world. tell us what is infoworld and wise donald trump talking and taking paged out of their playbook? >> it is one of the darkest corners of the media. they don't do traditional journalism but spread a lot of theories including 9/11 truth or theories. this was home to many ideas after 9/11 that it was somehow a tyrannical government plot. alex jones is somebody that trump has done interviews with and listens to what he has to say. it's also a place where roger stone a longtime trump advisor frequently appears and pedals ideas. many of the conspiracies you hear him bring up in the
11:26 am
campaign trail like the drug use which by the way there is not evidence of that originated with info wars. it is like breitbart, probably lesser known to the mainstream public. >> do you know how that conveyor belt works? is trump reading these things himself? >> it started with roger stone advancing the theory in an interview with alex jones. all of a sudden the came out of trump's mouth over the begin at the rally. somehow or another trump is getting this information in front of him. i don't know if it is his chief executive at their some conduit here. >> it would be fascinated to know people are pitching this to him or futurity it himself. particularly with the debate coming up all before that if you say something about of the camera that he or she may well just learned out on the stump. he had a teleprompter at that
11:27 am
speech. i wonder if that was in the prompter or if that was an ad lib.. it is not something everybody wanted him to say. >> it would be really striking at that was on the prompter but he did say it. >> we have the debate coming up on wednesday. if the trump campaign thinks this is their last best hope of cutting into hillary's lead? >> it is the last best hope to talk to 100 million people directly. he prepared for it over the weekend with some advisors. he is clearly not putting in the time that hillary clinton is. she is taken three full days of the campaign trail and is in new york doing debate prep. trump will be doing rallies instead. >> coming of the new politics

11:29 am
11:30 am
♪ >> before we dig into a new national poll, the worse things look for donald trump. underneath that nine point lead, hillary clinton is making -- leading in groups that make up the core of trump's coalition. she is two points ahead over trump among men. she's also up four points with non-college-educated voters. 48% to 44%. she's widening her gap among women, young voters, two groups the trump needs to do better with to close the gap. when asked how voters would feel if from 1, 60 2% said there would be panicked if trump one.
11:31 am
the campaign is out with two new tv ads. an inspirational spot airing in battleground states. >> my vision of america is an america where everyone has a place. and this is the america that i know and love. if we set those goals and we go together, there is nothing that america can't do. ad is onlynew running in three states, ohio, pennsylvania and wisconsin and it targets economically anxious voters. >> our economy once dominated the world and are middle crass -- class thrived. today, jobs are gone, factories closed because of bad trade deals pushed by the clintons that sent our jobs to other countries. nafta,s plan renegotiate stop foreign nations and cheating us, cut taxes to reopen factories.
11:32 am
donald trump knows business and he will fight for the american worker. market would like you to talk about the logic behind these ads and how they fit into the campaign strategy for the last weeks. mark: clinton wants to be more uplifting in a positive way and eventual tried to do that tonight and certainly in the closing days of the campaign. that trump add, i can't stay how many republicans of torment social media, that is his wing meshes -- winning message. everything could go right for donald trump tonight and the rest of the way. i'm not sure he could close the app. he has fallen behind into many states. he doesn't have the resources, or the discipline to hold strong if you would need to. that ad, while good, effectively running interest -- it is only running in three states is bad. john: what we said yesterday , and another--
11:33 am
message that would be good if he was hammering its april and may. in this environment, any individual had in a presidential general election that comes up is late, these ads will not move many voters. that's true of the clinton ad as well. although think hers is significant. they are starting to believe she's going to win and she has to start talking a positive, uplifting way in order to make it possible for a to shift to governing. mark: donald trump struggled over the week that is different from what you and i said. previously reset the obama team in 2012 are very confident, almost certain because so much data. the clinton people want certain. they are now more certain that they will win. because they have a lot of data and they've seen with trump's bad run has dropped numbers in key states. basically every
11:34 am
battleground state except for ohio, maybe iowa, they're more ahead now in all those states that barack obama was in october 2012, although hillary clinton is a less strong candidate than obama was, donald trump is a lot worse candidate has more trouble than mitt romney ever did. mark: one subject that may come up in the debate is the wikileaks e-mails reportedly taken from the inbox and other portions from campaign chairman account.sta's gmail republicans have and try to against hillary clinton for a couple of weeks. there is at least one person and doesn't agree with the party's approach. florida senator marco running for reelection explained why. >> i personally will not be talking about any revelations that come about solely as a result of the wikileaks. our intelligence officials were nonpartisan people have told us is is the work of a foreign intelligence agency and we cannot be a country where foreign intelligence agencies
11:35 am
can interfere and influence our poco process. what i would say tomorrow public and colleagues who may be disappointed by this position, today it is then, tomorrow it could be us. we really want to be a country where a foreign leader or foreign intelligence agencies can blackmail our elected officials and say to them that unless you do what we want to do, we will release e-mails from your campaign manager, your wife , your daughter, your son. we will embarrass you. i must want to be embarrassed, do with want you to do. is that we want? as a tidy, that's what vladimir putin does. are: is rubio a one up or other republicans going to adopt this? john: i don't know. but i hope so. where was that marco rubio year and a half ago? that marco rubio could've been the republican nominee. whatever happens in this election, this will be an
11:36 am
unprecedented election in this respect. we never seen a hacked election before and we never seen an election where a foreign power has been so active in influencing the election. every politician in both parties should be sobered by this regardless of who they are pulling for, they should be saying we are in uncharted territory and dangerous territory. mark: this could go down in history as the wikileaks election depending on what happens. ever but what happens. ever public and nominee in our lifetime would have called on democratic nominee and said we must stand together and denounce this. donald trump has chosen to continue to try and take advantage of it. as have other republicans and good for marco rubio, but amazing that no one else's thought of doing this and set it as forcefully as he has. john: when you mention this earlier today, i'm doing the mental exercise. i'm thinking it does it happen in two dozen eight, john mccain and barack obama what it stood as one on this. in two dozen four, george of a bush and john kerry would've been one on this issue. , a lot ofing

11:47 am
interviews that aired last night and today. to me, looking at that, that suggests that the trump campaign manager i that it still has a problem as a result of the follett of the access hollywood tape and the women who of come forward and continue to come forward. does a good that to you question mark a situation where you send a spouse out that you recognize were still hemorrhaging voters. >> that is exactly what look like to me. they thought it was going to go away, they try to blame bill clinton. they try out his women problems. it's not going away. it's way bigger than they howcipated which shows us disjointed he is from reality that he can say these things and it would be a big deal. i think definitely bringing her out. i do know fiddle help -- if it will help, it won't overcome what he said. we are still talking about this a week later. it's a problem for him that's not going away. i don't have great advice, nor would i give it to them to

change this around. mindy, does it matter if hillary clinton starts talking more about her agenda for the country? does that make a difference in her chances of winning over the last few weeks or chances of governing if she does w -- win? uswhat michelle obama showed last week is that her surrogates can be powerful. the anger against her and her problems have not changed. there are still a lot of people angry with her and don't trust her. that still exists. as others are able to calm out with a bigger message about america and the soul of our country and how much this election matters bigger than party, i think that goes a long way to help hillary clinton. michelle obama knocked it out of the park last week. she changed the election for a lot of people, especially women. if they can make moves like that, that will be helpful. i think mindy is right about
11:49 am
what michelle obama was into accomplish but i also think that market, you were right when you start to talk about this turn that hillary clinton can begin to make towards uniting the hopeful future a that is better for everybody. a willingness to work with republicans when it is appropriate and to fight when necessary because she is going to be elected president with a pretty substantial electoral college majority. i don't see any harm in reaching out her hand and saying i understand that it's my job to make this country work. i know there are publicans control the congress at the moment and i will work with whoever is there to move this country forward. i did a lot of people like to hear that, especially those who until a week ago were on the fence. they would like some reassurance. mark: chris wallace asked a pretty aggressive question. what top would you rate -- the word about him raising? i wouldn't talk about
11:50 am
allegations of the clinton foundation or quid pro quo because you can't just prove a negative. any time spent talking about this, you are off message. i assume chris wallace will ask about that. i think donald trump will press it. hillary gordon would be wise to step past it and look to the future. she could be next president of united states, she is going to come to office in a time that is very polarized. her poll numbers will not be good than what they are now. it is her job to bring the country together. she can start that tomorrow by looking like a grown-up and by looking past these childish questions. john: at this moment do you think democrats controlling the senate or house come november 9? >> i'm on the fence because i think there's a chance given what's going on and if hillary continues to snowball her lead and she is going into place like
11:51 am
arizona and who knows a week from now what other states will be talking about. i'm very aware of this anger that still exists out there and this frustration. , am hopeful that in some way that manifests itself in sort of a bipartisan result where we have checks and balances in terms of party in washington. i am not going to predict. if you'd asked me a year ago if trump is our nominee, here we are. i've given up predicting in this election. we need to understand the sentiment out there and begin end up just about anything in november. angry, steve,ot not angry. thank you both. we will talk ticket splitting.
