asked who you do listen to on foreign policy and we have yet to know who that is. >> well, it ain't henry kissinger, that's for sure. >> that's fine. >> hillary clinton tries to blunt bernie sanders' momentum after new hampshire, telling him to get real when it comes to the big policy proposals. plus, cleaning up his act. donald trump promises no more foul language as he tries to appeal those in the bible belt. and secretary of state john kerry said significant progress has been made in syria. today, talks continue with the u.s. and russia leading the way. it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west. this is "way too early."
hi, everybody. good morning. friday, february the 12th. i'm thomas roberts reporting live here in the liberty tap room in south carolina, where it's almost valentine's day. no love lost in last night's democratic debate, but we have some love from the college attendees behind me. i appreciate them getting up early to be with me. they were not here overnight. it is a bar. but we're going to talk more about why we're here at the liberty tap room, how we're broadcasting here as our msnbc headquarters today. let's get to last night because two days after the new hampshire primary, bernie sanders and hillary clinton squared off again last night. this time in milwaukee and clinton began by portraying sanders' proposals as unrealistics, saying by economist estimates they will grow the government by 40%. clinton went on the attack over sanders' criticism of president obama. >> today, senator sanders said that president obama failed the presidential leadership test and
this is not the first time that he has criticized president obama. in the past he's called him weak, he's called him a disappointment. the kind of criticism that we have heard from senator sanders about our president i expect from republicans. i do not expect from someone running for the democratic nomination to succeed president obama. >> that is -- [ applause ] madam secretary, that is a low blow. i have worked with president obama for the last seven years. i have been a strong ally with him on virtually every issue. do senators have the right to disagree with the president? have you ever disagreed with a president? i suspect you may have. >> senator, what i am -- what i have been concerned about is not disagreement on issues saying this is what i'd rather do. i don't agree with the president on that. calling the president weak. calling him a disappointment. those kinds of personal
assessments and charges are ones that i find particularly troubling. >> one of us ran against barack obama. i was not that candidate. >> now clinton also knocked sanders' foreign policy chops and sanders criticized her judgment on libya, iraq and knocking her relationship with former secretary of state henry kissinger. >> in her book and in this last debate, she talked about getting the approval or the support or the mentoring of henry kissinger. now, i find it rather amazing because i happen to believe that henry kissinger was one of the most destructive secretary of state in the modern history of this country. i am proud to say that henry kissinger is not my friend. i will not take advice from henry kissinger. so count me in as somebody who will not be listening to henry kissinger.
>> well, i know journalists have asked who you do listen to on foreign policy and we have yet to know who that is. >> well, it ain't henry kissinger, that's for sure. >> that's fine. >> when it came time for closing arguments, secretary clinton painted her rival as a single issue candidate. >> we agree we have to get unaccountable money out of politics. we agreed that wall street should never be allowed to wreck main street again. but here's the point i want to make tonight. i am not a single issue candidate and i do not believe we live in a single issue country. yes, does wall street, a big financial interest along with drug companies and insurance companies, big oil, all of it have too much influence. you're right. but if we were to stop that tomorrow we would still have the indifference, the negligence that we saw in flint. we would still have racism
holding people back. we would still have sexism preventing women from getting equal pay. we'd have lgbt people who get married on saturday and get fired on monday and we'd have governors like scott walker and others trying to rip out the heart of the middle class by making it impossible to organize and stand up for better wages and working conditions. so i'm going to keep talking about tearing down all the barriers that stand in the way of americans fulfilling their potential because i don't think our country can live up to its potential unless we give a chance to every single american to live up to theirs. >> prior to the debate hillary clinton won the endorsement of the congressional black caucus pac. the group made the announcement at an event in washington, d.c. and congressman john lewis went after bernie sanders saying this is about the senator's involvement in the civil rights movement. take a listen. >> and i never saw him. i never met him.
i would chair the student nonviolent coordinating committee for three years from 1963 to 1966. i was involved in the sit ins, the freedom right, the march on washington. the march in selma. and directed the voter project for six years. but i met hillary clinton. i met president clinton. >> a spokesman for the sanders campaign said bernie is a great admirer of congressman lewis. as he tries to make inroads amongst the african-american voters he got an endorsement from harry belafonte. and they intend to run that in south carolina. we'll show you a section of that coming up in "morning joe." just out this morning a new ad that the clinton campaign will run statewide this weekend and it features a pastor who lost his wife and the mother -- in the mother emanuel church
shooting. he praises her record on
guns in contrast to that of senator sanders. >> someone called me on the phone, she said, there's a shooting around the church and i just dropped the phone. first thing that came to my mind, we need to make some changes. hillary is really committed to making sure that the guns don't get into the wrong hands. and is standing with the president to get stronger gun laws. so no family ever has to go through anything like this again. >> i'm hillary clinton. and i approve this message. >> so let's go to the republican side and after shying away from criticizing donald trump in other state, marco rubio is taking direct shots at his republican rival right here in south carolina. the senator from florida knocking trump on policy and profanity. at a pair of town halls yesterday. he wasn't the only one. >> the other day, you know, sadly we were watching on the news and one of the other people running for president at a rally said a word that was bleeped out. they wanted to know what was the
word, what did he say, i can't tell you. if your president is someone who says or does something you'd punish your kids for that's not a good sign. >> i think the voters are assessing who is prepared to be commander in chief. and i will say i'm not sure a lot of voters are excited about having a president who when he gets rattled, when he gets upset begins cursing and yelling vulgarities. >> the criticism of trump's language seems to have had an effect. last night he brought in 11,000 people in baton rouge, louisiana, with another 4,000 people trying to enter outside. and this is a really huge crowd showing up for him, where the candidate resisted the urge of some in the audience to actually go ahead and use profanity. swear. saying he won't use it on the stump. >> political hacks, we have hack, i know some of them. they're political hacks, they get their job -- i won't use foul language. i'm not going to do it.
i'm not -- they're saying do it, do it. no. i'm not. that's better, right? instead of -- right? a woman is on my side. you're right. she said don't do it. right? don't do it. because they always have -- even if it's not a bad word, if it's a little bit off, they kill me. so i won't do it. i'll never do it again, actually. >> and there was more because trump went on to talk about a second presidential term, isis and take on george w. bush when he campaigns for his brother, coming up on monday in charleston, south carolina. >> if i get elected president i'm going to be in the white house a lot. i'm not leaving. we have deals to make. who the hell wants to leave, right? i'm just telling you i can do it all in four years but if i'm doing a great job, let me have four easier years, okay? four easier years. let me have four years of relaxation, because i'll do most of the work in the first four years.
as a country, we don't win anymore. we don't win anymore. we don't win with isis. can you imagine we don't win with isis. i always said, general douglas macarthur, general george patton, you say knock out isis, what would it take? one day? one week? they tried his mother, that didn't work out so good. now he's bringing in his brother. i won't say anything. i'll save that until after his brother makes a statement. there's plenty to say, especially after the last three months and getting us in the quick sand. i was against the war in iraq. we have to be given credit for a vision. i was against the war in iraq because i said, you're going to totally destabilize the middle east and that's exactly what happened. the middle east was destabilized. that was a horrible call to go in. >> george w. bush will campaign for his brother starting on monday.
that appearance coming in charleston. i spoke with the former florida governor jeb bush on the trail yesterday while he was celebrating his 63rd birthday. >> let's talk about your campaign and the fact that you're willing to your brother come out and campaign with you on monday. is that a signal that your campaign is willing to embrace what your last days means politically? >> i never had this problem that you thought i had. i'm bush, proud of it. i love my brother, love my dad, love my mother. it's part of who i am. i have a record that i share. obviously, as governor of the state of florida. and i'm focused on the detailed plans i have laid out, to lift our economy up and keep it strong. so my brother will be part of that story. i'm proud of the fact he's coming and honored. this is first time he's kind of stepped out and in the political realm since he was president. i think there will be a lot of interest in what he has to say. >> so jeb went on to say he feels confident that the voters of south carolina the help reset his campaign here with their votes. one more moment from the trail
yesterday and jeb bush and graham gave a glowing intro of him in front of a hometown crowd here in columbia. while he was getting going, the keynote speaker got an unexpected visitor. >> in the military we have each other's back. in our business we stab each other in the back. now, the bottom line is it can be better, don't you think? the first thing we'll do -- if i had eight years to live i'd want to live during the obama administration because it seems like forever. >> there's no saying no to a face like that. look at that little girl. so cute. well, governor bush sent her on her way. that she did get that jeb bush sign and it got an autograph. so senator ted cruz rallied 2500 people last night, saying they'd have to send their children out of the room when donald trump spoke, but picking up on the attacks on trump and abortion. >> if the candidate has defended partial birth abortion for most
of his adult life, we should not be surprised if as president he will not defend the right to life. >> dump trump. >> more questions when a new ad from his campaign hitting marco rubio over immigration was revealed to have a former adult film actress deliver the key line. >> i voted for a guy who was a tea party hero in the campaign trail. then he went to d.c. and played patty cake with chuck schumer and cut a deal on amnesty. >> does that make you angry? >> angry. makes me feel dumb for trusting him. >> maybe you should vote for more than just a pretty face next time. >> so within hours, buzzfeed news revealed that that person is amy lindsey who appeared in several soft core porn films. the cruz campaign released a statement saying that the actress responded to an open casting call and was not vetted by the production company. now they pulled the ad and said
they would not have cast her if they had known in advance. new this morning, the u.s., russia and other world powers have reached an agreement to a cease-fire in syria. secretary of state kerry announced it in munich. it calls for a cessation of hostilities against those fighting against the assad regime and the government. the deal calls for a swift expansion of humanitarian aid to besieged areas of syria and the agreement calls for the cease-fire to commence in one week after confirmation by the syrian government and the opposition. >> what we have here are words on paper. what we need to see in the next few days are actions on the ground, in the field. >> the cease-fire does not apply to military force against terror groups like isis and al nusra front. so a story out of new york state, about the police officer found guilty of manslaughter and an official misconduct in the shooting death of an unarmed african-american man. after 17 hours of deliberation,
a jury convicted rookie officer pet peter liang. he shot and killed 28-year-old akai gurley. he testified he didn't know there was anyone in the stairwell at the time. he was terminated following that verdict and he could face up to 15 years in prison. still ahead on "way too early," we have this news for you. kanye west debuting a new album, clothes and brings out his brother in lamar odom. it's not exactly "the apprentice" but we'll show you what was supposed to be donald trump's first television project and why you never saw it. that and a check on weather as "way too early" comes back. a live edition from the liberty tap room.

so i asked about adding once-daily namenda xr to his current treatment for moderate to severe alzheimer's. it works differently. when added to another alzheimer's treatment, it may improve overall function and cognition. and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. vo: namenda xr doesn't change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, or who's had a bad reaction to namenda xr or its ingredients. before starting treatment, tell their doctor if they have, or ever had, a seizure disorder, difficulty passing urine, liver, kidney or bladder problems, and about medications they're taking. certain medications, changes in diet, or medical conditions may affect the amount of namenda xr in the body and may increase side effects. the most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. all my life, he's protected me. now i am giving back. ask their doctor about once-daily namenda xr and learn about a free trial offer at namendaxr.com.
welcome back to "way too early." time now for sports. we begin with the nfl and news that the raiders will remain in oakland. at least for right now. the team announcing yesterday it's agreed to the one-year extension to play at the o dot kohl -- how do we say that? for the 2016 season. you can laugh because i can't say it. it gives them a chance to remain at the coliseum in 2017, 2018. ben, i don't think you know how to say it either. because you would have told me how to say it properly. the odot co. anyway, turning now to the nba. at least i thought i knew how to say coliseum. the thunder honored assistant coach monty williams' wife before the game against the pelicans last night. she died tragically in a car crash on sunday.
kevin durant held back tears earlier. >> i was trying to think about what i'd say, but -- just i love him so much, man. i feel for him, man. somebody we all love. i don't know what to say, man. i'm sorry. >> we go to bloomington, indiana, and take a look at this. the unranked hoosiers taking on number four iowa last night. check out the indiana head coach tom creme, and it seemed to work out just fine. the hoosiers used a 14-2 run to retake control late in the game. upset the hawkeyes 85-78. indiana has now pulled into the three-way tie with iowa and number two maryland for the top spot in the big ten.
all right. everybody, time to shift to weather. i wanted to head up to 30 rock. that's where we find steve sosna, in for bill karins this morning. >> good morning. you're avoiding a piece of the polar vortex rotating down this weekend. you see the pink, the color of my tie, i love when that happens, that's cold air pushing to the south. this is dangerous cold. so anywhere in across upstate new york, massachusetts, connecticut, you're dealing with windchills this weekend. yes, your eyes are not deceiving you. 15 to 40 degrees below zero. that's nothing to mess with. you want to dress in layers. headed up to the kski resorts, that's tough. temperatures in the single digits with the windchills. not too bad today, but what you see up near minneapolis is headed this way. we're looking at temperatures in the single digits and teens. and even in south carolina,
you're dealing with temperatures in 30s and the 40s. chilly no matter where you go. palm springs, 88 degrees later this afternoon. >> that sounds like the place to be. steve, thank you. still ahead, marco rubio tries to put a cap on what could be his worst week ever. especially now that he's been attacked by a candy bar. all right. we'll explain what that means when "way too early" comes back. yes, attacked by a candy bar.
so last night an audience of 20,000 caught a glimpse of fashion's future at madison square garden. rapper, producer, fashion designer, self-proclaimed genius kanye west kicked off new york fashion week where he debuted the latest collection and his seventh studio album called the life of pablo. hundreds of models stood motionless on platforms sporting oversized athletic gear. in muted tones as the music blasted throughout the arena. the show was a moving one with models, audience members and west himself even brought to tears. former nba star, this was good to see, lamar odom entered with west making his first appearance at a public event seemingly much healthier since his hospitalization for a drug overdose last october. listen to this, it's hard to imagine losing out to a twix bar, but marco rubio going into south carolina energized despite a tough debate performance. but his latest struggle came in the form of a showdown with the
twix bar that reportedly got the best of his molar. here's how marco rubio described it to reporters yesterday. >> it happened last night. i bit into the twix bar that i think was potentially frozen. and from just cold weather or whatever. i cracked a molar. so -- but we'll keep campaigning. we are not suspending our campaign. >> that's right. you have to move on. so "the apprentice" on nbc was a huge attempt, but it wasn't trump's first attempt. "the tower" was his first attempt and actors were hired to play it out. >> i have built every kind of building in the last 25 years. i made a lot of money for me and other people. the project of this scope comes along maybe once in a lifetime. >> that still doesn't explain it.
>> i want to be inspired. isn't that what most of us want? something that lifts us up, inspires us to something better. maybe if i pull it off this project will inspire other people and not just for a few years. long after i'm gone. >> dallas theme music. according to "the washington post," the script never made it past the pilot because it wasn't a compelling story. all right, that's going to do it for me and "way too early." thanks for come your time. coming up on "morning joe," dr. ben carson joins the discussion. that and much more. don't go away. derailed the ranc. when a wildfire raged through elkhorn ranch, the sudden loss of pasture became a serious problem for a family business. faced with horses that needed feeding the owners were forced to place an emergency order of hay. thankfully, mary miller banks with chase for business. and with a complete view of her finances, she could control her cash flow, and keep the ranch running.

>> especially with health care. this is not about math, this is about people's lives. >> secretary clinton has been going around the country saying bernie sanders wants to dismantle the affordable care act. we're not going to dismantle everything. >> every progressive economist says the numbers don't add up. that's a promise that cannot be kept. >> that is inaccurate. i don't know what economist secretary clinton is talking to. >> i believe i can get the money that i need b
