7:10 am
has this week's "meet with the press."
7:11 am
when big tobacco's products were found out to be killers, they promised smokers safety. they called it a filter. but this filter wasn't safe or useful, just small and made of microplastics that have endangered us all. for far too long, they have polluted the earth. they're literally everywhere. there's no need to search. big tobacco, you'll have to answer for your despicable ride, for your wake of destruction. your one little big lie.
7:12 am
welcome back. it is time now for the weekly discussion with chuck todd, nbc news political director and moderator of "meet the press." hi, chuck. good morning. good to see you. we actually aired "meet the press" an hour before the newscast as opposed to after the newscast today, and so i got to catch a little bit of it on the issue of abortion after that leaked draft of the supreme court poised to overturn the supreme court case addressing abortion. and how rare is this leak, and what is going on. >> well, it is unprecedented to have a leak of the draft of the
7:13 am
supreme court. they have had their share of leaks, but this is in response to a leak that took place five days earlier that "the wall street journal" who looked like they had informed speculation that chief justice was writing an opinion that roe would be intact, but lowering the viability to 15 weeks, and the indication was that brett kavanaugh or amy coney barrett was in play here, because of the precedent nature that -- look, if they overturn roe which had been upheld twice, and no such thing as an official thing in legal community here called the superprecedent, but if there were, this is one of them, so this is an unusual thing by the court to essentially take away rights that it once granted. it is certainly overruled itself in the past, but usually in favor of getting rid of restrictions on rights that had been taken away. in that sense, it is unusual,
7:14 am
and what is interesting is that the clerks were kind of split on what is going to happen, and our conservative clerk believed that what we have seen leaked is likely going to be what the ruling is, and the liberal clerk seemed to believe that a couple of things were possible, and don't rule tout chief justice to finding a way to convince somebody to his side, and he also speculated it is possible to order a retry of the case because of the unusual nature of what happened to it and all of the leaks. >> and speaking of the retry of the case, you have the governor of mississippi on this morning for those who don't know, it was back in december that the supreme court heard the arguments of the mississippi case which is in direct arguments of "roe versus wade" that we are today, and i know that you can't sum it up, but what is the overarching message to this leak? >> well, he is -- look, they are
7:15 am
planning for a world without roe, and they have a trigger law that would essentially ban most abortions including those that are committed via incest. they don't have an exception for incest. he seemed to indicate it is under discussion, but the news from the governor is that he would not specifically rulely out a rule that banned conception. so he did not rule out that it would not sign a bill that came to his desk, because he believes that life becomes at conception. >> thank you, chuck. if you missed it, you can watch it on nbc.com, and stream it on the nbc app or watch it on roku, hulu live and apple and peacock. coming up in 30 minutes from
7:16 am
now, we will talk to bay area expert larry thurston, and how the move could potentially impact other rights. and now, a march for women's right that started in powell and market street, and many brought sign and banners and declaring that the right to a legal abortion is an essential human right. the party for socialism and liberation organized the march. we will turn now, and let you know that if you are doing something this mother's day, there are plenty in the bay area, and here is mike inouye. >> thank you, kira, and the rest of the mom out there, and others, if you have forgotten to buy some flowers, the san francisco rose society is back with the rose show at the holland flowers and go to sfo

7:18 am
and had families of their own, but after their spouses passed away, they reconnect and found a spark. the happy couple got married in nevada with a crowd cheering them on. >> we had lunch with each other, and found out that we cared and loved each other after that length of time, and at our age, it is great to know that you love and care for each other after that length of time. >> the original wedding date was more than two years ago. we wish you all of our love and the very best to you, caroline and jim. >> that is great. >> i wish we had more to talk about that, but we have to check in with vianey about the forecast. >> yes, there is a system lurking by, and that going to bring some shower activity and wind and cooler temperature. so let's get right to it, and right now in downtown san jose, you can see the sunrise coming out, and mix of sun and clouds and the current temperatures as
7:19 am
you head out the door in the 40s and the 50s and we are running a few degrees cooler in areas like santa rosa, and 70 degrees cooler, and santa rosa cooler, and san jose is five degrees cooler, and talk about that system, because it is expected to bring some showers north of the golden gate bridge, and you can see it here, and this is going to kick up the wind, and yes, we are talking about the sierra snow, and look at the timing here, and looking at the hour by hour outlook, at 10:30, and san francisco and oakland and parts of hayward, and it is scattered. looking at 11:00, some of the scattered showers around and into freemont, and fast forward to 12:00, and we could see some shower activity and further south to los goydos and that area where you will notice some of the cloud cover, and if you are north of the golden gate
7:20 am
bridge up to santa rosa, notice it lingers. the biggest thing that you will notice is the wind. if you are looking at the rain fall totals, it will be north near ukiah, but if you are south, it will be less of that rain. hourly temperatures in the 50s to start, and then looking at 1:00, the upper 50s and eventually topping out at the mid-60s by dinner time, and running cooler this afternoon compared to what we have ahead. the biggest thing that i mentioned is the wind, and here the reason why. 10:00 a.m., and santa rosa, and san francisco, 20 miles per hour, and lunch hour, if you have any tents going up in the yard, make sure they are secured, because in livermore, it is 30-plus miles per hour winds and it is going to stick around. and there is a winter weather advisory in the sierra, and we are talking about the peaks up

values out there for years, and decades, really, and the right of the unborn as people call it, and the right of women to choose, and what to do with their own bodies, and the idea of roe v. wade is to find the middle ground, but we know that the ground has shifted with the three new justices on the supreme nd all of whom said it is settled law, and all who have said according to the draft, they said, no, it is time to change, and it does not belong in the constitution, and so it is a pivotal time for both sides. >> many pro choice advocates say that if row is overturned, it is going to close access to care, and then open the door to stopping personal rights, and do those claims hold merit? >> i wish we knew. justice alito who drafted the
7:50 am
majority opinion said this is about roe only. but if you are looking at it, it is connecting very closely to same-sex marriage, and contraception pill, and will these things, too, be found unconstitutional, and you can't say it relates only to roe, because once you open the door, it is other things can be opened as well, and that is what the pro choice feels, and we don't know whether it is going to roll that way, but we believe it could be possible. >> and chuck todd said that he felt that there were two former clerks that one believes there is going to be changes to the memo, and one believes it is going to go ahead as written, so what is the likelihood that this going to proceed, or at least one justice in the conservative majority who appears poised to overturn roe would change their mind? >> well, that a another good question. we know that normally, the justices do not change their
7:51 am
mind, and highly unlikely. we have seen justice roberts change his mind at the last minutes to allow obama care to go through, and justice kennedy in the case also about abortion that in the last minute, justice o'connor convinced him to change his mind. and so is that possible? yes, it is possible, and does it happen? it could happen. and kira, we are on strange ground here, because there is so much at tumult here, and a lot at stakes for both sides, and this is a big case to watch. >> and surely not the last time that we will talk about this. larry, thank you for your insights here, and thank you for the mother's day wishes. it 17:51 and up next, a quick look at the top stories that we are following. as families are celebrating mother's day, the covid cases are increasing, and what you
