2:02 am
a dark picture of life under a second term of donald trump. watch. >> we have a president who is not only incapable of addressing these crises but is leading us down the path of authoritarianism. nero fiddled while rome burned, trump golfed. while joe and i disagree on the best path to get universal coverage, he has a plan that will greatly expand healthcare and cut the cost of prescription drugs. joe will move us forward. >> reporter: the night belonged to michelle obama who delivered searing if not measured remarks, before senator harris was picked as running mate. here is what she had to say. >> donald trump is the wrong president for our country. he has had more than enough time to prove he can do the job but he is clearly in over his head.
2:03 am
going high is the only thing that works because when we go low, when we use the same tactics of degrading and dehumanizing others, we become part of the ugly noise that is driving out everything else. we have got to vote for joe biden like our lives depend on it. >> reporter: racial injustice was a major issue introduced, actress eva longoria, it's, needed a moment of silence led by george floyd's brother. coronavirus, the very reason the convention was driven online front and center is two governors in the midst of the pandemic, governor cuomo and witmer blamed donald trump. >> covid-19 is the symptom, not the illness. it is just a metaphor. donald trump didn't create the initial division. the division created trump.

he only made it worse. >> with a lot of work from the autoworkers and too little help from the white house joe biden and kamala harris will lead by example. >> reporter: tonight's theme will be leadership matters. aoc, senator schumer, bill clinton and doctor jill biden and our keynote will be led by 17 rising stars including stacy abrams. we will see how it goes. jillian: another recap tomorrow morning. todd: michelle obama's remarks the main event of the night, a reaction to the first lady's emotional appeal to the country. >> michelle obama doesn't like politics, she said this speech was her main contribution to the
2:05 am
biden campaign. she really flayed, sliced and diced donald trump talking about the chaos and confusion and lack of empathy, spoke about the deficits of donald trump and classism of joe biden. >> bernie sanders was the big headliner of the night. the host of the next revolution says the democratic socialist with the only speaker with any real energy. >> the only speaker with any real energy was bernie sanders because he really believes in something unlike the rest of the, joe biden is not anything. a machine politician. that is the danger. because bernie does have the energy. jillian: the first night of the convention was supposed to be about unity as ohio governor john kasich tried to win over independents and anti-trump republicans. >> america is at the crossroads today. the stakes in this election are
2:06 am
greater than any in modern times. i'm a lifelong republican but that attachment is second place in my responsibility in normal time something like this would probably never happen but these are not normal times. we are being taken down the wrong road by a president who has pitted one against the other. todd: marianne rafferty has more on the unusual endorsement. >> reporter: several well-known republicans declaring their support for joe biden that included court governor john kasich who ran unsuccessfully for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. in his address to the dnc urging independent voters and undecided republicans to abandon trump attempting to reassure them the former vice president will not cave to the far left. >> republicans and independents couldn't imagine crossing over to support a democrat. they feared joe may turn sharp left and leave them behind.
2:07 am
i don't believe that because i know the measure of the man, reasonable, faithful, respectful and no one pushes joe around. >> reporter: in a rebuttal republicans say it is clear why members of their own party are pledging support for biden. >> susan molinari and john kasich being used as ponds. it is a sad, desperate reach for relevancy which they didn't have a voice in the republican party. nobody wanted him. he didn't come to the convention. >> reporter: the president's son eric lashing out republicans are crossing party lines. >> washtub republicans that got 0% of the vote in 2016 and still bitter that my father beat them so badly but there is no specificity or anything. >> reporter: donald trump

2:09 am
todd: prior to john kasich's speech alexandria ocasio cortez lashing out at the for republican governor, extreme politicians like aoc received too much publicity and don't represent the party. the new york democrat firing back tweeting imparted is great the john kasich has woken up and realize the importance of supporting a biden harris ticket but something tells me your republican who fight against women's rights doesn't get to say who is or isn't representative of the dem party. the seattle police department releasing body cam footage of protesters shooting fireworks at police. the department says six officers were injured by rioters throwing explosives, one officer had to be hospitalized but is okay. 18 people were arrested.

>> joe biden is a puppet of left-wing extremists trying to we raise our borders, eliminate our police, indoctrinate our children, vilify our heroes, take away our energy and replace american freedom with left-wing fascism. todd: donald trump spending the first day of the dnc campaigning in minnesota and wisconsin, joe biden making a brief appearance during the democrat -- >> both battleground states, who carries them this time? the chairman of the national republican congressional committee joins us live, thank
2:16 am
you for being here. what is the main issue voters in your state are looking to right now? >> the economy, restoring law and order, donald trump who won wisconsin in 2016 came within roughly 45,000 votes of winning minnesota being the first republican endorsement for presidential candidate to win minnesota since 1972. this is the reason he is in position to win in minnesota and wisconsin again. todd: the latest cnn poll is fascinating. it shows the president just trailing joe biden by one% in a polling of battleground voters. with that in mind as donald trump win your state of minnesota and also take wisconsin, both battleground states.
2:17 am
>> i don't know you can trust these polls as i think the president is doing better than cnn is showing, they are using the same approach they use four years ago and we saw where those polls ended up after 2016. the president's message every building their economy which started in restoring law and order across this country is the message most americans want to hear is oppose what is being offered by the other side which is raising trillions of dollars of taxes, defunding the police and pushing government healthcare, socialized medicine. >> john kasich, we heard from him last night making a plea to independents and anti-from republicans to get the vote out for joe biden. what was his message about being a crossroads as we see in his video and what side you are going to go. >> sad moment for john kasich. a guy with some success in his political career.
2:18 am
what we saw leslie was a bitterness that has overtaken him. he was a candidate for this office four years ago on the republican ledger. he got left on the road with everybody else, donald trump won the nomination and the election. it is sad to see what john did. i can't believe john kasich supports raising taxes by trillions of dollars, defunding the police, opening our borders and pushing socialized medicine or government healthcare. i can't believe that is john kasich. this was more about his feelings and the fact he was not successful. todd: you don't think he speaks to the midwest voter? >> he seems to be very sick in the twilight of his career, sad to watch last night. john may have his perspective and his feelings but the
2:19 am
american people have a choice in the choice is the trump economy, restoring law and order versus raising taxes, defunding police and pushing socialized medicine which frankly will be less healthcare for people. todd: we came to a crossroads, we need to end, we appreciate your time, thank you so much. jillian: it is 19 after the hour. evo long korea delivers star power to the dnc but nice one left a lot of critics wondering where is the substance. todd: is a political theater? that is next. awesome internet.

2:23 am
musical guests launched the democrats most important week before november. is this what voters want to see? joe costa joining us live. >> this was one of the most tedious and teasey political theaters i ever witnessed. in a pandemic it can't be like a normal convention but it made a pbs telephone look like new year's eve in times square. it was beyond boring for lack of a better term and filled too homogenized, they didn't seem to be any authenticity to it but don't take my word for it. here are words to describe it online, anti-trump voices in the media, cringesy, sad, slow, phony, amateur, robotic, boring, painful. even marianne williamson said i wanted to like it, i promise i did. overall this is what we can expect for the next three nights
2:24 am
with president obama speaking, then kamala harris, joe biden and democratic stars. given this format you will see ratings drop in 2016, 40 percent-60% range. jillian: now it will be my follow-up question. the first time this has been done virtually, i don't think anybody knew what to expect to make it successful. some argue michelle obama's speech did resonate by the way it was done because it was quieter, has everyone's attention. were their parts of it that worked? >> the highlight looking for positives. one thing stood out, the fact
2:25 am
that you have the first african-american first lady not mentioning once the first woman of color in kamala harris being added to the ticket. why did that happen? it appears according to several reports you will read that michelle obama recorded this more than one week ago. i know she has a podcast and everything couldn't she have done this after kamala harris was chosen as joe biden's a running mate? she did it from home. jillian: a lot of questions as far as that is concerned. there was an interview with joe biden, joe biden vowing family that makes less than 100,$000 will make a free education. who is paying for that is what did you think of the fact that
2:26 am
party be was talking to joe biden? >> free college education, for four years of college flat out. everybody in the family less than 125 grand will get free education. we can pay for all this by doing practical things like making sure no corporation making a profit should pay less than 15% tax on their profit. >> if you add medicare for all, with free college on top of all the spending we've done, the only way to do that is by raising taxes on all levels of income. instead of sitting down with chris wallace, joey saying goodbye, joe biden and kamala harris will sit down with an
2:27 am
actual journalist where the records will be scrutinized, a lot to answer for, they are offering a lot. jillian: you will see, pretty sure you are doing that or something. >> democrats dishing out, not one piece of violence carried out by radicals.
2:28 am
2:29 am
2:30 am
2:31 am
>> now more than ever we need a president who will unite this country. >> we need a president who sees unifying people as a requirement of the job. >> black lies matter plaza behind me, a place we could come together to say enough. action begets action. progress begets progress. we can accomplish anything. >> reporter: democrat came out to make the case for joe biden, and no mention was made of the violent protests taking over cities across the nation. todd: how can we achieve unity without rejecting this -- why do democrats consistently fail with the violent we see across the country? >> would you talk about it if you were trying to sell your party? they don't have a good answer
2:32 am
for it. they don't have the answer, to quell the violence. it is a blind spot for them and it would be insane to bring it up because if they brought it up it would only encourage the protests, the way democrats have been talking about this. they have no choice but to ignore it. jillian: we heard joe biden as the unifier, did not hear about joe biden's plans to take the presidency and have four years with kamala harris. what did you think of the absence of joe biden? we didn't see him once. >> attending the wedding party without the bride. it is not unusual for the nominee not to speak until the end but they are sitting in
2:33 am
their seats or watching from there hotel room, people like seeing them. it humanizes the president, usually they are entertaining, that is the chief characteristic, fairness hadn't been done before. i don't know what the good answer is but it did seem to me a real lack of excitement. when you are with people who believe as you do, want to see donald trump gone, want joe biden elected you would think it would be a little more electric. not sure the format they chose were the best things they could do. interesting to see how republicans watching this try to counter at their own convention. what do they do? jillian: they can learn from this. >> congratulations to you.
2:34 am
if you had voting issues at this time, listen to what nancy pelosi and bernie sanders had to say about mail in voting. >> there purpose is to frighten people from voting. the more chaos they can create, the more they fear they can instill. >> this president's term the unthinkable has become normal, to prevent people from voting, undermined the us postal service. todd: is the president trying to scare people? >> i don't think so. this is extraordinary to me, the post office conspiracy koran enterprise that loses billions of dollars every year. seems to be the new russia, the new conspiracy, the president wants -- i am not sure, i think there's an appetite for replacing donald trump certainly among democrats but they are not
2:35 am
sure, mister biden, the real way to go. if i were trying to run against donald trump i would have a more positive vision. everyone does attacks. usually at convention you have speeches, a lot of them are funny, unfair to the opposite party but i didn't see that except for amy klobuchar. it felt like a -- todd: we have three more nights to go. >> public a pbs -- right. it will probably be -- i am sure -- are rows the crowd. jillian: thank you for joining us, appreciate it. >> thank you. jillian: widespread blackouts across california after being averted, millions being warned to conserve.
2:36 am
todd: the 5 growing to 19,000 acres threatening thousands of homes in la. lightning strike sparking new fires off the coast near napa valley. jillian: is there any relief in the site? >> this heat is going to linger, we are looking at extreme heat, large area. these are heat watches, warnings and advisories in southern california and arizona stretching into montana. a large area where the heat is there and with those dry conditions we could see wildfires, temperatures running into the triple digits, some spots getting up 125 degrees, in phoenix 110 degrees and you can see that over a fairly wide area, triple digits as far north is idaho in the pacific northwest seeing triple digit
2:37 am
numbers. it is cooler on the eastern half of the country, tiny but like fall, highs in the midwest only in the upper 70s, closer to 80 degrees in new york city so it is cooler in some spots. a couple spots we are paying attention to any atlanta, these are days away but some tropical storms forming in the next couple days before they track into the caribbean so we are in the heart of hurricane season and we will be tracking that. todd: this will be the best thing you see all day. a therapy dog named ellie getting millions of views online, going for a beer. jillian: she can manage her own social media accounts, order food and carry the take out bag.

michelle obama implies? >> according to her it does but for the first time she is proud of something else besides her husband, joe biden who according to some reports, barack obama is not concerned about because they could screw things up, their words as reported. michelle obama has been doing this for a long time, gives an empathic plea but never gives solutions, democrats on stage coming in order to have unity you have to have a plan for that unity, they face disunity tearing the country apart, what they need more than anything because the base is gone so far left, have to's satiate them. we have a broken democrat party where democrats are leaving, the silent majority below the tip of the iceberg, the silent majority
