7:11 am
. 3 f2 vayamos con mark harper el >> turn to mark halperin. mark, good morning. >> what is the mindset among clinton's world among her staff and candidate. >> we have all seen the clintons and their campaigns and there is an old political expression good bets better and bad gets worse. things are bad for her, big loss in new hampshire. there is a question within the campaign about whether she's got confidence in her team, some people on her team are worried she is not performing well enough as a candidate. those fundraising figures are horrible for hk. she can't raise money like bernie sanders. she's got to start turning things around and start winning the news cycle and then the two remaining contests in february, first in nevada in the caucuses and in south carolina she's got to start beating bernie sanders to give herself and her team

confidence. >> from the very beginning it was thought she would do well with women of all ages yet you look at new hampshire she lost that demographic by 10 percentage points, the common belief is she will do well with minorities, can she count on that now? >> well, look, i don't think secretary clinton can take anything for granted now, her campaign is making an inevitability argument. of course, she will do well with non-white voters, bernie sanders again making an aggressive push. he is on offense, she needs to do more than just defend her support with minority voters. matt, you put your finger on it, female. in south carolina african-american voters matter, female african-american voters matter a lot and bernie sanders has a message that will play well in nevada where there's economic distress. he's got challenges, too, right now she's got more. >> all right. >> and, mark, on the republican side of things it's interesting because we're seeing this dynamic where you have cruz and trump as the top tier candidates

7:44 am
did. >> it is insulting when you hear madeleine albright hear what she said. don't look at credentials, policies, issues. you are a woman with, vote for a woman. it makes no sense. >> it is a phrase i have heard her use since '95 in beijing. even on a starbucks cup. the problem with the context, she says it jokingly, but she said it at a rally with young woman. i think that was out of context. she was with just on the bill maher show and a separate issue. young women don't feel the connection. if you are hillary clinton and came out wealthy, a valedictorian, a life story they are telling in a campaign video at her rallies, they don't want to hear what she said. she wanted to know what she can do for them. she talks about i not we bernie sanders says and they want to

bay area is in the 70s. our temperatures are well above average. we should be in the low 60s today. don't expect any new records but more of this warm weather into the weekend. it's been more than 20 years since the murder trial of o.j. simpson. >> a new series taking us back to the days before and after his acquittal in people versus o.j. simpson. malcolm warner plays the friend behind the wheel of the white ford bronco that carried simpson in the low speed chase. >> 911, what is your emergency? >> this is ac. i have o.j. in the car. >> who is this? i have o.j. in the car. you tell the police to back off. he has a gun to his head. >> where are you? >> you just clear the freeway.
9:34 am
we are going to brentwood. >> good to see you. >> good to see you. >> what was it like filming that scene? they cleared out the freeway. you are reliving that moment. >> we shot that scene for two days. we shut it down over a weekend. it was draining. we literally by the end of sunday we spent two days doing that scene. no one what went on in the car. >> you remember the moment where we were when we watched the white bronco chase. you were 24 years old at the time. do you remember what you were thinking at the time of that? >> i was curious as to how it was going to turn out. was he going to shoot himself? or were the cops going to shoot inside the truck which i thought was plausible, as well. >> such an interesting figure in
9:35 am
the story. o.j.'s friend in high school and played together in the pros. how did you get into a.c.'s head to play the character? >> there was not a lot of information on him. most articles have to do with their friendship. i took it from the standpoint of a guy who there were complexities to the dynamic of a friendship where one guy is in the spot light and the other guy is in his shadow. from my perspective he really had o.j.'s back and feels that if a.c. and o.j. were still friends after the trial that o.j. would not be in jail now because a.c. would not let o.j. go to vegas and do what he did. >> this online, social media reaction, people are addicted and really wanting to binge watch.

9:37 am
evidence. it is done in a date line kind of way. you get the sense that they really put the pieces together. >> so because the show is not designed to change anyone's opinions about what they thought about the trial or the verdict, the show is really about the players involved and gives you a lot of behind the scenes stuff that we didn't necessarily know. >> i had no idea. >> don't tell me. >> the only reason i know is because i saw the commercial. >> i am so addicted to it. it is fantastic. >> thank you so much. always great to see you.
