and apologizing to him, to say that it was weekend nights, it airs on week nights, sorry chris. it's friday, june 10th. right now on "first look," a whirlwind day for the democrats as president obama throws the full weight behind hillary clinton. and the nation prepares for a memorial fit for the man known as the greatest of all time. nbc exclusive as david letterman goes one-on-one with our own tom brokaw. plus, slow jamming the news with jimmy fallon on "the tonight show" and some news of the bizarre. all ahead on this friday. "first look" starts right now. well, good morning. happy friday to you. thanks for joining us today. i'm betty win win.
the leader of the free world is throwing his support behind a single candidate to take over as president of the united states. in the highly produced three minute video, president obama lays out the case that hillary clinton has the toughness and the experience which make her one of the most qualified candidates to ever run for office. >> i know how hard this job can be. that's why i know hillary will be so good at it. in fact, i don't think there's ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. she's got the courage, the compassion and the heart to get the job done. >> clinton reacted telling bloomberg news, quote, it just means so much to have a strong, substantive endorsement from the president. we have gone from fierce competitors to true friends. the clinton campaign released the president's endorsement video just minutes after he sat down with senator bernie sanders, a meeting that left the idea of party unity on sanders' mind. >> donald trump would clearly to
my mind and i think the majority of americans be a disaster as president of the united states. i will work as hard as i can to make sure that donald trump does not become president of the united states. >> senators harry reid and chuck schumer also met with sanders as did vice president joe biden. that was before biden offered this off the cuff endorsement of clinton late last night. >> anybody who thinks that whoever the next president is, and god willing it will be secretary clinton, but whoever -- >> many democrats feel it's really just a matter of time before sanders publicly calls it quits and unites behind clinton. >> he knows how important it is to win this election and beat donald trump. i have every bit of faith that we are going to be working together with senator sanders to achieve that goal and the goal of taking back the senate. >> my understanding is that
senator sanders wants to be respectful of the process until the end. until the people have spoken. >> president obama will join clinton on the campaign trail on wednesday in green bay, wisconsin, the home of republican house speaker paul ryan. meanwhile, the most recent nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows the president with a 51% approval rating nationally. and an 88% approval rating among democrats. donald trump though was quick to react to the president's endorsement on twitter saying, obama just endorsed crooked hillary. he wants four more years of obama but nobody else does, to which the clinton campaign said snidely, delete your account. it was another key endorsement that overshadowed the trump/clinton twitter feud. coming out a week earlier than expected. liberal senator elizabeth warren endorsed clinton with the exclusive announcement on msnbc's rachel maddow. >> i'm ready. i'm ready to get in this fight
and work my heart out for hillary clinton to become the next president of the united states. and to make sure that donald trump never gets any place close to the white house. >> and if there were any questions about democratic unity, they were silenced yesterday as warren and vice president joe biden delivered slams against trump from every angle. >> for a candidate to call a judge a hater, a total disgrace, this behavior in a president smacks of authortaryism and racist. >> trump is picking on someone who is ethically bound not to defend himself. exactly what you would expect from a thin skinned racist bully. and we will not allow a small, insecure, thin-skinned, wanna-be tyrant or his allies in the
senate to destroy the rule of law in the united states of america. we will not. >> house speaker paul ryan told nbc's andrea mitchell he remains a trump supporter despite denouncing trump's previous comments. >> look, i think his stage presence is something that's different than say what i would do. but my personal interactions i find him to have a very even hand and temperament. >> you have even said that what he said about judge curiel was the textbook definition of racism. how can you say then but but he's okay to be president? >> i think we all -- not just republicans, should disavow comments like that. i'm glad he walked it back. this is a long campaign with a long way to go. and he has a ways to go to give us a campaign that we can all be proud of. >> and despite a doozie of a political day, it was president obama who got the final word last night as he slow jammed the
news with "the tonight show's" jimmy fallon. >> through the actions of my administration, we were able to stimulate the economy and getting our country back on track. ♪ oh, yeah, president obama stimulated long term growth ♪ ♪ barack lit some candles and got some silky satin sheets ♪ ♪ silky satin sheets now his first two terms ended in such a hurry ♪ ♪ wish he could go for three like my man steph curry ♪ >> now, now, there will be no third term. i can't stay forever. besides daddy has a hawaiian vacation booked in about 223 days. but who's counting? thousands of fans and admirerers are set to pack a louisville arena to say good-bye to muhammad ali. bill clinton will give the

>> trump's point is he cannot be judged by a member of any group that he has offended. no muslim judges no women judges unless she's a ten. trump's insulted the pope, so no catholic judges. he called everyone in iowa stupid so no judges that eat corn. >> do you think republicans are happy with their choice? >> we are but i don't know how -- [ laughter ] i don't know how they're feeling. >> there will be no third term. i can't stay forever. besides, i have a hawaiian vacation booked in about 223 days. >> oh, what a week it was. politico reporter daniel strauss joins me now from washington. happy friday to you. >> happy friday. >> all right. so president obama endorsed hillary clinton yesterday. what does this mean for bernie sanders? >> well, it means that he has a
much shorter list of high priority endorsements he can get. you know, the fact that the president of the united states is backing a candidate means that that is the preferred candidate of the democratic party. >> but you don't see him stopping before the convention? >> no, not really. i mean, he's continued -- he's vowed to fight on, he's vowed to compete through the d.c. primary. and so far, every time he says something like that he's stuck to it. >> well, senator elizabeth warren has officially thrown her support behind clinton. she also delivered a blistering speech on trump calling him a racist. is she going to be clinton's biggest attack weapon against trump? >> she's angled herself to do that. she's been mentioned as a vp candidate and one of the most active attack surrogates for clinton against trump and that's what she's going to continue to do. >> yeah, you mentioned a possible vp candidate. could that be a good ticket out there? clinton/warren? >> more and more we are seeing signs that that's a definite
possibility. warren's open to it, clinton is open to it. there's murmuring on both sides -- in both channels that's a possibility. so yeah, it's -- >> who else would she be up against though? >> tim kaine in virginia. he's a senator down there. tom perez, former labor secretary and sherrod brown of ohio. those are the big names bandied around a lot. >> let's move over to donald trump. who might he be considering? >> a bigger mystery and a wider array of names. they have gone from jeff sessions in the senate to even ivanka trump, according to one report in "the washington post." >> really? >> really. >> up in the air there. thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. just ahead, the world's cutest trespasser, all caught on camera. plus more slow jam with jimmy fallon and president obama. he?

"way too early" starts right now. donald trump is a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and who serves no one but himself. you, donald trump, are a total disgrace. you shame yourself and you shame this great country. and we will not allow a small, insecure, thin-skinned, wanna-be tie rant or his allies in the senate to destroy the rule of law in the united states of america. we will not.
