7:02 am
we received excerpts from the speech that romney will deliver later today and the 2012 presidential nominee is planning to unload on the current front runner. we will talk about that with donald trump live in just a moment. but let's start our coverage this morning with nbc national cress pent peter alexander, he is in salt lake in morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. that highly anticipated speech about an hour and a half away, you can see the line is already forming at the university of utah. mitt romney's aids tell me he will not endorse any of donald trump's opponents today, he also won't announce his own candidacy for the presidency, but he will slam trump calling him a phoney and fraud and warning as president trump would harm america's future. harsh words from mitt romney in just released excerpts from his highly anticipated speech today romney slams donald trump writing, here is what i know, donald trump is a phoney, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as a degree from trump university. he is playing the american public for suckers. he gets a free ride to the white
7:03 am
house and all we get is a lousy hat. the former governor in 2012 candidate not holding back, adding, his domestic policies would lead to rescission, his foreign policies would make america and the world less safe. he has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president and his personal qualities would mean that america would cease to be a shining city on a hill. overnight trump hitting back, tweeting just another desperate move by the man who should have easily beaten barack obama, misspelling the president's name. and posting a facebook video questioning romney's own conservative credentials. >> i will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose. >> romney's reemerge ens i go nalg new urgency. highlighting trump's comments on race. >> i don't know anything about what you're even talk being with white supremacy. >> and his past business failures. >> he hides behind bankruptcy laws to duck paying his bills
7:04 am
and kill american jobs. >> still trump's opposition remains divided. >> what people are saying now is please everyone get together so we can keep this front runner from winning and destroying the republican party. >> if you're at home and you've been supporting another republican candidate, i would tell you we would welcome you to our team. we would welcome you with open arms. >> the next show down tonight's melee in the motor city pitting trump against the rivals and moderator megyn kelly, their first face-to-face meeting in seven months. >> i have been very nice to you although i could probably not be based on the way that you have treated me. >> new this morning our first look at the provocative front cover of the new "time magazine." there you see it a picture of donald trump with five boxes four of them checked that read bully, show man, party crasher and demagogue, the fifth still unchecked reads 45th president of the united states. as for that debate tonight there will only be four candidates on the stage, ben carson will not be there, he hasn't suspended
7:05 am
his campaign, but has made it clear that he doesn't know if there's any path going forward. it's going to be a big day here and big day tonight in detroit. matt and savannah. >> peter alexander, thank you. >> mark halperin is the co-host of bloomberg television's with all due respect. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so we know what romney is going to say today. with this speech does he become the de facto leader of this somewhat fractured movement to stop donald trump? >> he becomes a voice on the national time square. the next two weeks are drit cal not just for the game of the republican nomination fight but for the country in choosing who the republican nominee will be. mitt romney is choosing this moment with just a couple weeks to go before florida and ohio and other big states vote to say to the country i think this is the wrong choice. he is a distinctive voice in the republican party but he is going to be part of an movement and effort to stop donald trump which is not going to happen just because mitt romney says so, but the other candidates, john kasich, marco rubio, ted
7:06 am
cruz are going to have to step up at this debate tonight and in the next couple weeks to be part of this effort. >> i was going to say there are different strands to this stop trump effort that's going on. what do you know about efforts to raise money to that end, to spend money particularly in florida on ads? what are you hearing about and also some republican leaders now openly talking about running a third party candidate which they acknowledge would all be assure hillary clinton wins. >> the effort now is not to think about that third party thing because it's difficult. the dynamics, the logistics of it are difficult. the effort is to raise money, some of the richest members of the republican and conservative establishment are either going to write checks or thinking about it. there has not been very many negative television ads against donald trump and the focus is to slow him down. they know that donald trump is far and away the best position to be the republican nominee, what they're trying to do is win enough delegates for these other three candidates to keep trump from getting the majority. then you get to a second question, if donald trump has the most delegates but not a
7:07 am
majority can you stop him at the convention? the effort from mitt romney and others and in the next two weeks is can you get enough delegates for other candidates to stop trump from getting that majority. >> quickly, mark, you mentioned the senate. it seems to make no sense for the other three candidates to be attacking each other tonight. they are all going to go after donald trump. the question is which donald trump replies? is it the guy who likes to insult people and poke a sharp stick in their eye or is it that bay that was on the stage at mar-a-lago the other night? >> the guy on the stage was reaching out, trying to unify not just the party but the country through his tone and rhetoric. if they go ard after donald trump tonight how does he respond based on his tweets against mitt romney you think maybe he will drop the big reaching out figure and go back to the tough fighter which his supporters do like. >> back to this whole effort, the money is being spent, mitt romney speaking today all trying to stop trump. there a risk in that in the sense that there are trump voters who must be looking at
7:08 am
this and thinking, oh, the party leaders and a bunch of rich guys are trying to stop trump, i must be on the right track supporting him? >> the establishment will not stop donald trump, it has to be the voters. the people who want to top -- many of them are part of the so-called republican establishment but the smart ones know this has to be an a veal to voters to say this shouldn't be the republican nominee. in the end it's not going to be in washington, d.c. in a smoke filled room it's going to have to be based on advertising and persuasion and mitt romney's speech can you appeal to voters to say go with one of the other three guys don't go with donald trump. interest your honor still is in a commanding position for the nomination. >> mark, as always thank you so much. we will talk to donald trump live in just a minute. first we want to talk about the democrats. hillary clinton taking aim at the republican front runner and last night she held a star studded rally in new york. kristen welker has that part of the story. good morning. >> good morning to you. secretary clinton is off the trail today preparing for this weekend he is a democratic
7:09 am
debate and the next phase of her campaign and it comes as the drip, drip over her e-mails won't let up. >> hillary clinton celebrating her strong super tuesday. >> yesterday was super tuesday tonight is super wednesday. >> with a star studded fundraiser at new york's radio city music hall. katy perry, elton john and more. >> hillary clinton is the right person for the job. >> but overshadowing the bright lights this morning a new spotlight on her use of had a praft e-mail server, the washington post reporting the justice department is granting immunity to former clinton staffer brine pagliano he helped set up the server clinton housed at his home in new york when he was secretary of state. last september called in front of a congressional panel pagliano invoked his fifth amendment right refusing to answer any questions. in a statement a clinton spokesman says the campaign is pleased pagliano is cooperating with doj, noting we urged him to
7:10 am
cooperate back in the fall. >> i haven't even started on hillary yet. t. >> reporter: political opponent donald trump is already vowing to play the e-mail card if they face off in november. >> i guarantee you one thing, we will be talking about those e-mails every moment of every day. >> reporter: clinton has also been taking aim at trump, painting herself as a union fire to contrast with his sharp rhetoric. meanwhile the washington post reporting the fbi could interview other clinton staffers about her e-mail and possibly the candidate herself in the coming weeks. the campaign sales they would welcome that in the hopes of putting the matter to rest insists tlg no wrongdoing, the department of justice did not return our requests for comment. >> kristen, thank you. let's turn to the man at the center of all this, donald trump joins us on the phone. mr. trump, good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> mr. trump, it's savannah, we just got some excerpts from mitt romney's speech today he calls you among other things, a phoney, a fraud and he says you're playing americans for
7:11 am
suckers. your response? >> well, he begged me four years ago for my endorsement. i mean, literally begged me and he is a failed candidate. i mean, frankly i backed him, he failed. he was a horrible candidate, didn't know what he was doing. he disappeared in the last month before the election. while in all fairness barack obama was doing all of the shows, jay leno, david letterman all the time and this guy disappeared. he went away and he got killed in the -- he got decimated in the election. now, i will say this, if you look at what's happening and you see i've won a lot of different states, but maybe more importantly millions and millions of people are joining the republican party and going out to vote and on the democrat side you will see what's happening, they're down 30%. the republicans are way up higher than they have ever been, setting records, because people are energized by what i'm saying. the american -- the american worker is making less money now than they made 12 years ago, matt, and we're losing all of our trade, we're losing our jobs and people are tired of it.
7:12 am
>> i want to go back to mitt romney for a second, mr. trump. do you fear that he could now become a unifying voice in this fractured and frantic effort on the establishment side to stop you? >> mitt romney is a stiff. mitt romney will not get elected. mitt romney failed twice and really failed last time. he was going against a president that should have been beaten. the president was not doing well and he should have been beaten. that should have been an easy election. the problem is nobody came out to vote for mitt romney and i'm talking about republicans. they didn't come out. i mean, it's well documented i'm not just saying this. >> right. >> they didn't come out to vote for mitt romney. >> the next question i have, you may have just answered it with that answer, but tonight at the debate it seems highly likely that the three other candidates left on the republican side are going to go after you. they're going to save their fire for you. so the question is how will you respond tonight? will you be that guy who just called mitt romney a stiff or will you be that guy who tried
7:13 am
to appear much more presidential, for example, at mar-a-lago on tuesday night? who is the real donald trump? >> well, it's different. look, i have these guys like this lightweight marco rubio who doesn't even show up to vote for the people of florida, he is defrauded the people of florida and i can't imagine anybody from florida wanting to vote for this guy. but if you take a look at what's going on, i can't act overly presidential because i'm going to have people attacking me from every side, a very good man ben carson is not there any longer so now we are going to have more time for, you know, the fighting. i can't stand there and act presidential -- >> why not? why can't you be presidential and say i'm above this? >> let me tell you, because when people are hitting you from different angles, all different angles, unfortunately, matt, you have to hit back. i would have a very, very presidential demeanor when i win, but until such time you have to hit back. when you hit back you're no longer presidential, unfortunately.
7:14 am
>> mr. trump, on another topic, a lot of republican leaders in the last few days have said the final straw for them was this controversy over the weekend about david duke and the kkk. now, in fairness to you you have since disavowed david duke, you said i disavowed -- >> not since this event. >> and before. and before. >> i've disavowed him many times over the years, i disavowed him -- >> right. that's why it was so weird when you didn't do so on the cnn interview people were surprised at that. >> but, savannah, he was talking about different groups and he couldn't tell me who the groups were. >> right. >> he was saying the groups. >> not to go over this again, but you yourself said i don't know who this david duke is three times. >> no. no. >> clearly you knew he was talking about david duke. >> what i meant by that is i never met david duke. i know who david duke is. >> that's not what you said. >> excuse me. excuse me. i will tell you what i meant. you don't know. i know. i never met david duke. i don't know him from the standpoint i never met him, but i certainly would not have anything to do with him or the
7:15 am
kkk and everybody knows that. and i say how many times do i have to disavow? right after that i tweeted that i disavow any -- you know, any endorsement or anything of david duke. who would endorse david duke? >> that was my question to give you the chance to say and convince these folks that this is not something you want. >> savannah, let me say it again for the 20th time. i disavow david duke and the kkk and anybody else who preaches hate. is that okay? i mean, are you going to now ask me about it the next show when i call it? i disavow david duke and obviously the kkk, but i've been doing this for -- from the time this question has been asked. >> right. except for that one time which is why people were wondering about it. >> well, i don't know -- >> i think we've settled it. >> i think i've done it and he was talking about groups and in all fairness to groups, there may be a group in there that shouldn't be disavowed and i think it's very unfair to a group if that's the case. i don't know. but he talked about as i
7:16 am
remember the word groups and obviously -- but i would -- >> but if there are white supremacist groups i think you've made it clear you don't want their vote. >> i don't want their vote and i think i've said it many times. maybe i said it better the first time and the fourth time and the ninth time, but i disavow and i've disavowed right from the beginning. >> donald trump, thank you for being with us, we appreciate you calling in. >> talk to you soon. >> thank you very much. thank you. >> thank you. also this morning in houston we have our astronaut back, scott kelly is back home in the u.s. after his year aboard the international space station. kelly arrived in houston, texas, overnight, he was greeted by close friends and family including his brother and fellow astronaut mark kelly and dr. jill biden. kelly says he is happy to be home and back here on earth. >> when i left here in february i don't even know what day it was in february, i was 50 and now i'm 52.
7:17 am
so -- but it feels great. >> one interesting note, kelly grew two inches during his time on president international space station because the spine elongates in space. the growth spurt is expected to be temporary. new developments in the story we brought you exclusively on wednesday, what could now be a piece of wreckage from malaysia airlines flight 370 found off the coast of africa. investigators examining that debris. nbc's tom costello broke the story. what's the latest? >> reporter: good morning. next week is the two-year anniversary of mh370's disappearance, in confirmed this would be only the second piece of debris that's washed ashore in all that time. if you look closely there's something rather odd about this most recent piece. photographs of the piece of debris that an american tourist says he found off the coast of nose a.m. beak written on one sietd, no step, common language written on many aircraft surfaces but look closely, there
7:18 am
is no sign of any marine life which raises the question how long was it in the water? overnight australia's transportation minister confirmed the discovery but not much more. >> the piece of metal in the order of a meter long. it is of interesting to us, i can't confirm that it's a piece of plane and anything to do with mh370 >> the confirmed piece last year was covered in barn calls and that piece was founded on reunion island. blaine allen gibson is the american tourist who made this most recent discover. >> this is definitely from an airplane. this could be from a boeing. this could be from a 777. this could possibly be from malaysia 370. we don't know yet. >> gibson is a self-described wealthy adventure traveler determined to visit every country on the planet and he admits he's been fascinated with mh370 dins it disappeared, even
7:19 am
meeting with victim's families and exchanging conspiracies. he figured there was a chance some debris could have floated to nose a.m. beak. >> i didn't think i'd be finding a piece of airplane that day and i don't know what airplane it is. there have been other planes that have crashed in the indian ocean and it could be one of those. >> sources close to the investigation say based on the photographic evidence there is a high probability the debris is part of the skin of a horizontal stabilizer on the tail of a bowing 777 and the only missing 777 anywhere in the world is malaysia airlines flight 370. the australian transport minister said the location of the debris matches their draft model for where the debris should end up, but even if it is from mh370 it won't tell investigators where the rest of the plane s the search remains focused off australia which by
7:20 am
the way is 3700 miles to the east of where they found this piece of debris. back to you. >> tom costello on this story. thank you. we turn to al and tracking what might be winter's last gasp. >> that's what we're hoping. >> from your mouth to you know who's ears. >> let's show you why we're thinking this. we've got this system now some heavier showers and thunderstorms down through the southeast, snow breaking out from chicago all the way back into lexington. we right now have winter storm watches worm warnings that stretch 600 miles and 20 million people at risk for this. we watch this low pressure system it's going to be bringing snow to washington, d.c. late, in fact, this evening, heavy thunderstorms around atlanta if you're flying in or without probably delays. as we move through the evening areas snow spreading further. by tomorrow morning's rush hour from washington, d.c. up to new york light snow, accumulating snow from richmond to atlantic city, then it moves off the coast and intensifies. we see some snow for the eastern end of massachusetts.

7:31 am
the republicans will face off in a debate in detroit. ben carson will skip it saying he doesn't see a path forward for his campaign. >> hillary clinton hosts the star studded fundraiser for her campaign at radio music hall. as for bernie sanders he was busy campaigning in maine ahead of the democratic caucuses there. an 11-year-old boy hitting the first shot at the new golf course in texas co-designed by tiger woods. dozens of people watching including tiger -- [ cheers and applause ] aces it from 81 yards, a hole in one. the crowd goes wild. tiger goes wild. the major champion giving the kid a well deserved hug and pat

on the bat. >> tiger needs to start designing harder golf courses. that is crazy easy. >> that's your take away. >> this morning a brazen smash-and-grab at a gun store in houston caught on camera. >> this is some crazy video you will see. it is now a federal case with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and fire arms joining houston police to solve the crime. the bandits are expected to face multiple charges. an atf spokesman confirms authorities have made multiple arrests and recovered most of the weapons. the crime looks like a scene from a hollywood movie, bold, brutally efficient and lightning fast. in a smash-and-grab assault, a black pickup truck backs up to the store. one grabs a chain, smashes the glass doors and wraps it around the metal security gates.
7:33 am
as the driver guns the engine and smoke billows from the tires the pickup lurches forward. and then the robbers wearing sweatshirts with hoods just run in. once inside they leap over-the-counters, smashing the glass and ransacking the place scooping up more than 50 weapons, both rifles and hand guns before making their escape dropping weapons as they run. >> a very professional operation. the entire thing took less than three minutes. >> the thought of those weapons on the street. >> frightening. let's get a check of the weather again. >> we have a big storm system coming into the west coast and we are going to see el nino effect into southern california. big upper level low in the pacific. jet stream coming this way bringing a lot of moisture. the rain will pick up over the weekend. coastal ranges see heavy rain

9:04 am
>> is there just other funny stuff melissa can say when she's shopping? >> i think it would be great if melissa walks in and she's like, i brought coupons! like that. did you guys need coffee or anything? >> yeah. >> that would be awesome. >> oh, my gosh. >> i liked the garfield joke. >> i want to make one thing clear. i got a lot of tweets. your jokes were terrible! it was a bit. but honestly, we're going to show the full piece later. but lorne michaels, god bless him, allowed us to go in with our cameras for a full day. that never happens. you'll get a look at "snl" that most people have never seen. >> here's the question, because lorne is considered one of the most powerful people in television. >> no question. >> he is the most powerful. >> he's the top of the food chain. >> and this may explain why willie was willing to dress in a
9:05 am
variety of costumes that -- i mean, behind the scenes -- listen, what people at home don't know, willie is the nicest guy. however, he has a line in the sand about certain things, like costumes. we have an m&m contest coming up later. willie's response is you would love for me to try this, but i'm not. >> i didn't say that. >> that's what they told me. that you weren't in. >> how did you get in that costume? >> the head of wardrobe at "snl," dale richards, a great guy. >> a friend of ours. >> and donna. been there a long time. he's the most respected man in all of wardrobe. >> right. >> not anymore after he made you wear that. >> he said we don't let people in this room, but i like you and i'm going to let you come in. lorne said you could come in, on one condition. you're putting that on. i said, do i have a choice? he said no, get in the leotard. >> we had to get you in costume. >> were you part of a skit? >> no. that was a skit that was coming

9:10 am
our "today's take" m&ms with our faces on them, which will be very frightening. we've got heavy thunderstorms to the south. snow developing from peoria, chicago. here's what we're looking at. winter storm warnings stretches over 600 miles. 20 million people at risk. all right. so here you go. here's the storm. light snow developing in the midwest. rain and thunderstorms back tonight around rush hour. it's going to be a mess down in atlanta. so if you're flying in or out of there, forget about it. then later this evening, snow developing in washington, d.c., back to indianapolis. and as we move into the morning rush hour, it's snow from washington up to new york with heavy showers and thunderstorms, accumulating snow. generally about two to four inches to the south of new york city. here you go, real quick. boom. there it is. ft. wayne, indiana, seeing some snow. heavier snow, about four to six inches, richmond to south hill. philadelphia one to two. that's
9:11 am
we're seeing some scattered light showers across parts of the bay area, mainly in the north bay and san francisco where we have a low clouds and fog. it's misting there, too. also in the east bay where we have low visibility along the immediate coast. other than that, mostly to partly cloudy skies today with temperatures reaching the low 60s. 62 in the east bay and san francisco. tri-valley, up to 64 degrees. we'll see the rain tapering off this evening and another round heading into tomorrow. what big news, britney. what just came out? >> the "ghostbusters" trailer is coming out. we'll show you later. >> the new girls "ghostbusters." >> i thought we showed a trail. >> no trailers yet. this is big. >> a couple leaked pictures until now. >> this is going to be big. we're going to roll it. also, why it's a good time to get your house on the market. bless you! >> you can't sneeze on tv. >> have a green m&m.
9:12 am
>> haven't you heard about green m&ms? in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain
9:13 am
or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. introducing the fusion of exceptional taste with the benefits of our probiotic yogurt. new activia fruit fusion, with the exclusive probiotic bifidus regularis. delicious and good for you. new activia fruit fusion. then your eyes may see it, differently.ave allergies. only flonase is approved to relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase changes everything.
9:14 am
one of the cool perks of this place is you can eat as much cereal as you want. it's like i'm going to work to get some. alrighty. we just like cereal. we make it, eat it, love it, live it. (laughing) and now in delicious chocolate.
9:15 am
not spring yet but it's busier than ever. >> before you buy or sell any home, there are things you know before getting the most for your money. here to tell us about them realtor mike aubrey. you look like a realtor i would trust. you got the look going on. but you also say this is a strong market. this spring is the time to strike. >> don't be confused by the weather outside, tamron. the spring market is already here. i haven't had a day off in more than a month. that's how busy i am right now. inventory across the country is at an all-time low. mortgage rates remain amazing. 30-year fixed loan, 3 and 5/8. we're in a position where rent is so high that buyers really need to go out and buy in this market as opposed to rent
9:16 am
because it's not a decision. >> they go to an open house or viewing. what's the first thing you think about? >> i think one of the first things to look for is in the house in good order? essentially, are you seeing a house that looks like somebody wanted to actually sell it or have they not put enough time in it to do that. if they do that, they want to change the filters. turn around and walk away quick. >> that is the same kitchen. >> cleaned up. there are a lot of red flags. you talk about pricing your home right, not to go too high. what's the advice there? >> i think even though it's a seller's market, you don't want to overestimate your position. buyers now are smarter than we've ever seen. i think that what's going on with that is, if you overprice, you'll lengthen your days on market. you'll end up with less money. be smart. >> talking about being a seller. skur be appeal is important. what should i have as a seller? >> what you're looking for.
9:17 am
the thing with the most impact for you as a seller is walls and floors. that really makes a difference. i think that just the sweat equity, putting paints on walls and changing flooring, that will resonate with buyers and give you a chance for a good sale. >> you see the clutter there and what you've done is cleared it out. a nice paint job, simple but clean. >> cleaned up lines. got rid of the really tacky border along the ceiling. we made it look like a place somebody would want to buy. >> if i wanted to upgrade a kitchen or bathroom, what's a cheap way to do it without a renovati renovati renovation? >> go with mid level upgrades. like ge or whirlpool as opposed to viking or something else. those are the things you buy in a house not sell in a house. >> how much should we spend on upgrades? is there a percentage? >> not really a percentage.
9:18 am
you have to spend money to make money. most of the time i have my clients spend $10,000 to $15,000 to prepare their house for market. >> this is a bathroom makeover. that seems relatively simple. >> it is. they used ceramic tile as opposed to marble. >> i want to know what that guy has been doing in his tub. >> these are real pictures. >> what's going on. mike aubrey, good to see you. >> thank you, mike. up next, your first look, as promised. the new ghostbusters movie. >> it's so good! >> al has already seen it. >> he's already seen it. we're going to share with you after this. >> it's better than elmo dancing.
