politics. welcome back to the party, rick perry. he made his presidential announcement in front of a crowd of veterans and spoke about the military and the economy. and his buzz feed pointed out he has his own country rap song now. ♪ >> there you heard it. perry is the tenth republican to declare and only the top ten will be allowed to be in the debate. this now has a hunger games type feel. it was one of the well you don't say moments at an energy and congress committee hearing yesterday. they were discussing a deal having to do with nutrition when a congressman made this confession. >> i don't think i've ever in my menu life looked for a calorie
numbers on anything i've consumed. and i bet that -- i bet i'm in the majority of americans. this is the perfect example of an nanny state. >> i don't know. i read them. from defense tech koirg, u.s. air force targets and destroys isis hk building using social media. they discovered a photo and comment of an isis member online. they figured out where it was posted and bombed it less than 24 hours later. what do miss piggie have in common with a judge? they kpemly fied the spirit of feminism. the first look cute photo of the day, that is the child of one of the president's advisors and that is going to be framed for the rest of that kid's life.
look at that. and chafee announceing he'll be running for president but he may not have a chance against hillary clinton. >> even his shadow doesn't seem to be taking him very seriously. take a look at this. look at that. you see what i'm saying? >> and that is your morning dish of scrambled politics. i'm joined now by kevin cirilli from the hill. that was a good one. >> happy friday. thanks for having me. >> happy friday to you. let's talk official. how does rick perry's official jump from the gop shake things up? how is he going to be a different candidate the second time around? >> a lot of us in washington are talking about weather he will be able to actually move pass the gas from his last campaign. they insist he'll be able to
move beyond that but that being said, he's trying to position himself as someone who is able to bridge the tea party with the more moderate ring of republicanism. it will be interesting to see how he does it in such a crowded republican field. a lot of folks that i talk with view him as a dark horse candidate to other top tier candidates like jeb bush and scott walker and marco rubio. >> okay. do you think rick perry is likely to be among the top ten gop participating and for those who don't end up on that stage, is it game over? you have to whittle it down somewhere. >> that's a great question. really, the first cut off in this is the top ten to get on the stage for that debate. do i think he will be able to make that threshold? i think he does have a strong chance to be in the top ten. if he doesn't or other candidates who do not, there's a side show debate broadcasted
onlun, and so i think when you have this many candidates "the new york times" hit it on the head with this hunger games people. i think it will be quite difficult for the top tier candidates to stay on message because we live on such a viral media culture where they'll be able to launch side show campaigns. we could have a situation where there's a different winner in iowa, new hampshire and south carolina which means we're in for one heck of a super tuesday. >> the fact that he is under indictment, how is that going to play into his candidacy? do you think voters care or are they aware outside of texas much? >> i don't think so, and i think that even a lot of top democrats have come out and said that indictment wasn't something they were even taking all that seriously. i don't expect the indictment to play that seriously into this. >> okay. good to see you on a friday. have a great weekend. >> you too. >> just ahead hundreds gather to
♪ >> if i've mentioned one word this was an extremely sophisticated attack. that points to a nation state. we have extraordinarily vulnerable and this is just the latest in a series of wake up calls that we've had during this past year. it's time for us to act. it's time for us to pass a cyber security law, and it's time for us to better protect the critical infrastructure which this nation depends upon. >> hacked. the data of millions of american federal workers breached and the u.s. government suspects chinese hackers are to blame. and rick perry makes his case
for another presidential bids. and jimmy kimmel hits the streets as new yorkers battle it out over the east coast, west coast rivalry. you won't want to miss it. this is "way too early." ♪ >> good morning, everybody. it's friday june 5th and welcome to "way too early." shocking disturbing and troubling that's how some lawmakers are describing one of the largest data breaches ever for the u.s. government. here's what we know right now. up to 4 million current and former federal employees are being told that their personal information may have been stolen. at this hour the fbi says it's investigating how and why the breach
