8:00 pm
john: i'm john heilemann. mark: and i'm mark halperin. and "with all due respect" to mitt romney, who is reportedly having dinner with donald trump, would you consider secretary of steak? ♪ mark: it has been a news filled more fallout from fidel castro's november monday. and an attack on the campus of ohio state university this morning. we start the week with three unsolved mysteries. we would get to the mysterious case of the green lady's recounted in a moment, but first, the riddle of kellyanne conway and an ongoing secretary of state thrilla. it took a few interesting twists.
8:01 pm
for some time it appeared that trump had narrowed his choices to former gotham city mayor rudy giuliani who has been pushing forward his own presidential credentials, and to mitt romney, the former republican presidential nominee, and in the past a vociferous critic of donald j. trump. amidst giuliani frequents of appraisal, his chances were said to have diminished. also, push back against romney from other trump supporters and 80's -- aids and a brazen series of rebukes from transition adviser kellyanne conway sparked a classic sunday morning tv threes and -- tv frenzy. >> this seems like a pretty bitter internal battle going on in the transition team over the nation's top diplomat condition. >> for more new york city mayor rudy giuliani is a top contender.
8:02 pm
>> mitt romney potentially next secretary of state, rudy giuliani also thought to be a contender as well. >> people closest to him throughout some of the toughest times and that campaign you do not like the idea of mitt romney on principle and greatly prefer rudy giuliani. >> kellyanne conway's comments, were they sanctioned or is trump angry with her? >> she is risking a lot. what if he chooses mitt romney? what is that mean for her? >> everyone is saying how dare she speak out of turn without permission? my thought is, how refreshing. >> peter playlist and of work so hard say, man, this guy worked against you and through the light of the bus at every turn. >> kellyanne senses that with mitt romney you could have a secretary of state presiding over a rogue agency. >> this is not saying mitt romney is going to be secretary of state. this is just saying kellyanne
8:03 pm
conway hurt herself going rogue at the worst possible time. >> why do we think she is going rogue? why don't we think she is channeling donald trump, her boss, who has soured on mitt romney? [laughter] mark: one of the non-romney contenders is in trump tower to talk about the job. how did it go, general petraeus? >> i met with them for about an hour. he basically walked us around the world, showed a great grasp of the variety of challenges that are out there and some of the opportunities as well. very good conversation and it goes from here. mark: tomorrow, the next president of these united states will sit down with tennessee's bob worker, also thought to be under consideration for secretary of state. after that donald trump hold a second meeting with mitt romney over a tuesday night dinner. talk about kellyanne
8:04 pm
conway's curious comments from the weekend in a moment, but john, more broadly, when it comes to the important plot of secretary of secretary of state, where do you think donald trump is headed? john: i have this feeling that david petraeus is the goldilocks candidate here. i think trump wants to reward giuliani, but does not want to spark that degree of criticism. i think the romney thing, i think he is toying with romney, playing peekaboo with a baby. but i think petraeus is someone he has respected and admired for a long time. he has spoken of him fondly for a long time. i think that could be the direction we are headed. mark: david petraeus is about a -- a brilliant guy and a charmer. i think the vetting issues is something that he wants to avoid. mr. believe the senate controlled by the republicans too manyharshly vet people but petraeus will end up with the short stick, and i'm sure he would love the job because of the vetting issue. i still think kelly or romney are the two best choices.
8:05 pm
i try to reach a lot of people to talk about it, no one wanted to talk about where this stands and everybody says the same thing. this is donald trump's pick. he has more relations, but trump corker is an interesting pick. he has more relations, but trump as it is my the image that he wants. john: bob corker is a very smart guy, but he does not cut that figure. petraeus though does. romney clearly does. there is no question. trump has said that. he looks like a secretary of state. petraeus -- i know there are vetting issues. it is true. but for the recent tucson, to get us more than just the republican senate. it is also that a lot of republicans in the senate are on record saying that petraeus was wrongly treated, that he was cast aside in a way that was not commensurate with the crimes, that hillary clinton did much worse things in terms of handling classified material -- mark: i will say this. the mystery here, which i tried to get at the bottom of this and i failed, is where is mike pence on this?
8:06 pm
mike pence was bullish on rummy. -- romney. there were other people who tried to get a romney rally going. they try to get romney back. i think it will have a long meeting says that trump is still interested, but where is mike pence on this? john: it may be. it all feels like part of the reason -- my gut, and i'm just doing this on gut, too. i am asking everyone in the world and i cannot get any real straight answer. i think this is the one where trump would feel if he owned this pic and it was not lobbied. mark: we are way over. one more strike against petraeus. there is some indication that trump thinks having a retired military as head of the national security council and secretary of state is a retired general too far. john: if that were his thinking, it will be a reasonable thought in my view. we were talking about kellyanne conway already. she caught the hell in the political world when she took the meat cleaver to romney, on the sunday shows, basically
8:07 pm
saying trump is betraying his backers by even considering is on be former massachusetts governor. according to their trump transition sources on morning joe the president-elect was , furious, according to some sources, furious, with conway for going public with her criticisms. there are theories galore about what conway was doing when she took out the meat cleaver and why she was doing it. what is your take? mark: she did not just doing on sunday shows but she didn't on twitter and then she walked up back. here are some things that donald are not deniable. trump is someone who can be furious one moment perfectly happy. john: sometimes the same moment. mark: also true, there are long knives out for kellyanne conway. john: 100%. mark: though she says it is of three, her own choosing, she does not have a job yet in this enterprise. number donald trump really likes four, kellyanne conway. number five, kellyanne conway is not stupid.
8:08 pm
the answer to whether donald trump had any idea she said which was going to say come authorized to come authorized to, suggested it, whatever. i can say this, she does not feel any less confident in her place in trump world today than she did yesterday. she might be seeing the long knives, but she is not less confident. mark: here is the thing i think. john: i'm really a firm one fact of yours and it will even throw it into context. kellyanne conway has driven me crazy on the show because she is hard to get any straight answer out of. like crazy.-spins she will not address a direct question. mark: not like a sean spicer or jason miller. john: but not a dummy. a very smart woman. the second thing that is manifestly true, we saw through at the entirety of the campaign, donald trump loves chaos. he thrives on chaos. he likes chaos. he likes to pick people against each other. i don't know the authorized her, but it would not surprise me. even as he is furious with her, he sort of likes this kind of
8:09 pm
thing that is going on. mark: again, my point about john spicer and jason miller. john: a cheap shot. just say it. it's a cheap shot. mark: they are all spokespeople for the empire. all right, we have a series of trump tweets and about 6 million bucks. after mucho pulled, green party candidate jill stein felt for a recount in wisconsin, citing computer scientists concerned over voting machines that have somehow been hacked, despite the fact that there's no real evidence to back the claim. she has raised more than $6 million so far for recounts and took steps toward initiating a similar recount in pennsylvania today is a plan to do the same in michigan later this week. three states whose results, if somehow overturned, would give hillary clinton the presidency. over the weekend clinton's , lawyer, mark elias, wrote a post on medium -- some sort of
8:10 pm
website -- saying the campaign will assist in the recounts in efforts already underway to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides. donald trump reacted somewhat differently, had a twitter rant for the ages. he lashed out on twitter to jill stein and clinton, and then he turned up spending fully unsubstantiated claims of election fraud by tweeting this , in addition to winning the electoral college in a landslide, if you deduct the millions of people lately, i won the popular vote. he also tweeted "serious voter fraud in new hampshire, virginia, california. why isn't the media reporting on this?" john, what are clinton and trump up to with joel stein's recount effort? john: when donald trump tweeted that thing about the landslide and how he would have won the popular vote, i tweeted, two lies for the price of one.
8:11 pm
this has been persistent with donald trump since the moment he entered this race. he has problems with the truth. he lies all the time. sometimes he tells small life. -- lies. sometimes he tells big lies. it was bad enough when he was a now he is president-elect. it was bad enough when he was a candidate going around trying to undermine be legitimately of the system, but to claim without any evidence whatsoever that millions of illegal people voted in this race and in passing that he won the electoral college by a landslide when he got 306 electoral votes, which is not a landslide by any means -- why? there is no purpose. it is just bad. it portends badly for the future. mark: it's bad for him. it's bad america. it's bad for the children. it's bad for everybody. i hope he did this without asking anybody. i hope that if you asked someone before he tweeted they would have said, do not do that. it is no longer proper.
8:12 pm
it was no proper before, but as you suggested we are in a different phase to treat something of stance you did with no evidence. the president-elect at this time, that is about thing. hillary clinton, the thing her lawyer wrote was the watson reason that said we did not expect this to overturn results. yada, yada, yada. if donald trump were doing this, the democrats would be up in arms. they have no hope of overturning the results. what is the point? what is the point in participating? it sets it back signal. we should just say, we see no evidence that there's anything wrong. we are staying out of it and we hoping to success of the president-elect. john: that is all he said. mark: he said they would protect the paint. he put their imprint on it. he said -- john: trump would never -- mark: i agree. john: he would be totally unreasonable. he said, we do not expect to achieve this outcome. mark: in a world where reason pervades, great.
8:13 pm
john: let's fight for a world of reason. how about that? mark: go on, whatever it is, read that thing. all right, would we come back, we talk about the mixed reactions to the death of fidel castro. we will also talk about what donald trump and others are saying about the dead communist leader right after this quick break. ♪
8:14 pm
8:15 pm
♪ john: memorial services began in havana today following the death of cuban leader fidel castro, who died at the age of 90. the funeral will be held on sunday but the white house said today that president obama and vice president biden will not be in attendance.
8:16 pm
on a statement about his death has been panned by republicans for making no mention of the violence and oppression under his rule. or his part, donald trump released a scathing statement about the "brutal dictator" and also tweeted about castro with the exceptional economy, making use of far fewer than hundred 40 characters allotted to him and his favorite medium. he said "fidel castro is dead!" and that was it. that is actually true. today he tweeted at greater length. if cuba is willing to make a better deal for the american people in the cuban american people i will terminate deal. this is the first big news event double have ongoing implications, so how do you think you president-elect is handling this? mark: not horribly. he is leaving as options open. he is playing not just to the base of the republican party -- or some of it because the public -- the republican party is divided, but he is play to his own instincts about the style that he wants to have, particularly contrast with
8:17 pm
barack obama but it does show that he will have on this issue in a range of others a ton of running rooms. how much with a big domestic agenda, how much do they want to shake the world up in the first couple months by going on offense question mark anybody talking about feel -- how he will be tested by china or isis or whatever. there is some thought in the trump camp on cuba, iran, other areas -- go big early, shake the world up. john: there is no good reason, from the standpoint of a free-market republican or a liberal democrat, to go back and undo what has been done with respect to normalizing relations with cuba. we took a long time to get there. this is not an obama left wing thing. countless people, countless business people, fortune 500 ceos, wall street future will and free-market economists have argued that it is the best way to help the cuban people, to normalize the economy. mark: not the base of the republican party. john: let's try to rule on the
8:18 pm
merits. mark: that's my say, he is leaving his options open. be right back to talk about to reporters with donald trump's transition and the aide everyone is profiling, steve bannon. right after this. ♪
8:19 pm
8:20 pm
♪ mark: welcome back. joining us from capitol hill, nbc news correspondent kelly o'donnell who is tracking every bit of the transition. we are talking about for five names of secretary of state, one of them is bob corker, who was considered for vice president
8:21 pm
running mate for a time. job?would he bring to the why is he on the list with all these other impressive people? >> at the moment he is the seniormost foreign policy kind of responsible person on capitol hill in that he is the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. that is a post which really allows him to speak to ministerial level officials from all over the world. he is constantly thinking of issues that are the same portfolio as secretary of state. so, he has got that. he is also, and his former life was a real estate investor, so he can speak trump in that way, as a businessman, and he's a traditional republican among those early to come out in sort of quiet supportive donald trump. he is not waving the flag so much, but he cited things he thought were positive in trump, policies, and back to those. -- back to those. that gives trump and his menu of choices someone from the traditional mold who has a
8:22 pm
portfolio that would work. john kerry, our current secretary of state, was previously head of the foreign relations committee. it gives you an idea of that portfolio matching up with a job that is open for a future trump administration. john: we are also bringing in to join kelly o'donnell is meant pfizer who has recently done a piece on steve bannon. matt joins us from the global newsroom in washington dc. mash, it is good to have you here. run in a crowd that has known i haverun in a crowd that has known steve bannon for a long time, and one of the things coming out of these profiles is the notion that some of the more controversial things he has espoused and provided a platform for he may not actually believe. tell us what your piece tells us about that question and what your reporting has revealed. matt: i talked to many of his classmates at harvard business school, where he went for two years.
8:23 pm
almost universally, people did not hear the type of rhetoric that is often associated with him now. there was no anti-semitic language, racist language during his time there. the conclusion that many of his classmates draw is that he has found a marketplace where there is a segment of our society that is interested in that type of rhetoric, breitbart provides some of that and abandoned -- bannon has used his skills at harvard business school to market toward some of that for breitbart. but bannon himself, a lot of these people believe, does not believe those things that are promoted on the website he has been running. mark: kelly, there was concern on capitol hill when bannon was named. people seem more comfortable with reince priebus. are they adapting themselves? are they getting more comfortable with the notion of being on team bannon? kelly: they can find comfort in
8:24 pm
saying a president-elect should be able to choose those around him. democrats very strongly against bannon, citing all of the things you were just talking about that came out through breitbart as part of the bannon economy, who wanted to have things that would strike a marketplace where there are people who want to see those provocative ideas. democrats still very uncomfortable. republicans saying things like they don't know him yet, and also looking for any strands that build him up. for example, the rjc, the republican jewish coalition, says they do not believe he is anti-semitic. that has gone a long way to bolster him. mostly, it has been avoidance or tiptoeing on the subject of b annon focused on the jobs to powder dry when it comes to steve bannon. john: secretary of state and i have a question for each of you.
8:25 pm
this is something we're talking about early in the show, david trias, whether or not -- he obviously has some vetting issues, but from your sense of republicans on capitol hill, do you think those problematic enough for keeping him of secretary of state or with the be easily overcome if that was when donald trump went? kelly: i think there would be a lot of explaining that he made a mistake, owned up to the mistake, paid a price for the mistake, and he has a large portfolio of experience that is key to that position. you would have some republicans -- the mccain-graham coalition -- that would strongly support david petraeus in a foreign policy role. it is a challenge to get around the obvious that he was convicted of a misdemeanor related to passing secrets, especially at a time where there was so much question about what extent the clinton email should be probed and investigated and so forth and we're not even sure that is entirely over from a capitol hill perspective so that makes it difficult. in terms of the david petraeus
8:26 pm
most lawmakers knew in their , interactions, you've got a lot of praise and respect for his service to his country and his knowledge about the issues that are really front burner for anyone in that job going forward. john: matt, as a "boston globe" guy, i know you have covered a lot of mitt romney and his world. is there any growing sense among wrong the allies that donald trump is just toying with mitt romney and about to publicly humiliate him? matt: that is not a concern in romney world. sort of how serious to take this. they feel like they do not want mitt romney to be sort of set up for something. the meeting last week, 90 minutes long, sort of gave assurances that this was something more serious than a staged meeting. then having dinner tomorrow night is also an indication of some seriousness of this, but there is still a fair amount of caution in romney world about where this may lead. there is a hope that romney is
8:27 pm
taken seriously by the trump campaign because they believe mitt romney would be good in that role, but there is still a little bit of skepticism among his supporters. mark: matt viser writes for the paper of presidents or at least presidential candidates and kelly o'donnell, nbc news. thank you both for joining us. good to have you back. we are going to talk with the editorial page editor of the new york times, the transition, the recount and oh, so much more. james bennett joins us right after this. ♪

8:30 pm
before and i never will be again. john: you are going to be called that every time you come back on the show. every time you come on. mark: you hear from a lot of people on the left that said the press must hold all of cap accountable. james: do not normalize. mark: lots of organizations, including the worse on the editorial side have come in many respects investigative pieces come editorial pieces denouncing things that he does. he used to be a working reporter. what could the press at large do more than we are doing to hold him accountable? james: this is a question i think we are asking ourselves all of the time right now. i think there is -- you know, times doubling down on the investigative capacity in washington and other papers are as well because there's so many questions emerging about the
8:31 pm
potential conflicts in it interesting will happen with his business and wants is and how that might influence to mystic policy. i think there are a lot of questions we have to ask ourselves, you know? mark: give me an example of one thing. let's say the head of the top 50 news organizations in the country were called in and say, james, we were to baltimore accountable to read what is one thing that people could do, news organizations, producers can makers could do to baltimore accountable? james: i think more investigative reporting is number one. i think the scary thing is what you guys were talking about earlier which is the fact that he has his own giant megaphone, as he should is president-elect and the resident and has a pattern of simply denying widely accepted reality. in that environment. we are in uncharted waters. mark: there was an incredibly great piece over the weekend, a
8:32 pm
very long piece, where they broke it down market by market. there were tons of things in there that raised red flags, and yet, i have no sense of that impacting donald trump's life in any way. james: i agree with you, and we, as journalists, need to do the best jobs that we can, which is reporting the truth as we understand it, digging deep play, read fair, obviously, and trying to understand the man in full and his interests, his side of the story, too, but it is ultimately up to the citizens in how they receive and process those messages, and, you know, the voters spoke in this election. editorial boards like mind were arguing for a different outcome. we did not get the outcome we were arguing for, and i think we do have to ask ourselves hard questions about how we should be reaching people, whether we are reaching them as effectively as we would like to be in this day and age. john: a conventional
8:33 pm
conversation i would like to have. mark: totally my fault. back at him. john: backing up the something is so second ago. there is a great debate going on right now. there was a piece of the magazine about reince priebus this weekend, normalizer in chief, whatever. normalization is a big debate. within the halls of the new york times of the highest levels, is there a posture on this question, should the press -- what is the posture on normalization? he is clearly not a normal president-elect. he is doing things that are breaking precedent every moment, right? what is the times' posture with respect to, is there a posture to more normalizing this man as president? james: what do we mean by "normalizing"? this is what i'm struggling with a little bit. by normalizing we mean denying the reality of the fact that this guy has been elected president, i do not think that
8:34 pm
will get us very far. if what we mean is that we should not simply accept that it is normal for the president of united states as many conflicts of interest as donald trump is entering office with. i think that is what we are doing. again, he is quite cunning about this stuff, and that is the way he articulates it, and he has got a point, by the way, that it is not the same thing as saying therefore he has no conflicts of interest that would impact on policy, so, you know, we can put a whole lot of things in a big bucket and call that normalizing the presidency, when in fact what we are doing is trying to report as aggressively as we can. john: so last night, when trump tweeted who said that he had won by a landslide, and that he had won the popular vote, which was a lie, there's a whole debate on twitter about how to handle that. when he asserts things that are
8:35 pm
demonstrably untrue, and we as reporters say "that is demonstrably untrue," and then we hear back that "you guys are all biased," in some ways, it strengthens him. by saying these things and trying the rebukes that he draws, his followers and say, again it is trump against the , world. the mainstream media is out to get trump. in some way, do you suspect that he is playing a very cunning game by lying like he does, by saying that the sky is red as opposed to blue? james: i think it is deeper than that. there is this notion that is loose in the land that there is a narrative, the story you tell, and he has his version of the facts, and you have your version of the facts.
8:36 pm
it is the same debate we have been having around climate change where the proof is all on one side, yet the other side continues to insist that the case has improved and i think it is a scary question for the whole country. we used to talk about "spin," but "spin" was about a version of the truth that you were just trying to put on the best possible -- but now, we are just operating completely sleep off the field. of, ever that i know says, "oh, yes, got the wrong. let me go back and do it over." he just kind of moves on and leaves us in the wake arguing about whether he was line or the right word is lie. has aas a factual matter, new york times written a favorable article since he became president-elect?
8:37 pm
james: i have to give that some thought. we have said some good things about him, including the boldness of his infrastructure plan, when he threw the big number out there. no, we have. in fairness, we have given credit to him for different positions that he has taken as a candidate. mark: ok. all right. james: but, in fact, the campaign is kind of a blur for me. mark: we look for to next year. , perhaps making his final appearance on the show. we shall see. not because he was not great, because he was. when we come back, john's interview with the abstract of the tribe called quest. you are not going to want to miss it. if you are in washington, d.c., you can always listen on 99.1 fm on your radio device. we will be right back. ♪
