but it stands right now to our best knowledge, that chris christie is going to be at the kids table tuesday night. drama. first look" is up next. >> it's thursday, november 5th. right now on "first look," did isis kill 224 passengers by bombing a russian airliner? and if isis is responsible, how will russia retaliate? filmmaker quentin tarantino speaks out exclusively to msnbc after his critical comments at an anti-police brutality contest. swirling over gop presidential candidate donald trump's guest host on "saturday night live." "first look" starts right now. good morning, i'm dara brown. it's a dramatic turn in the investigation into that russian air disaster over egypt's sinai desert. a u.s. official tells nbc news evidence indicates it was likely a bomb possibly planted by isis
that brought down the airbus, killing all 224 people aboard. nbc's tracie potts is live in washington with details. good morning, tracie. what evidence are they basing this theory on now? >> reporter: well, in part intercepted communications at the airport, but again, dara, this is not yet confirmed. those types of communications can be misleading. but they are definitely raising more questions about the capabilities of isis in that region. this is new video we just got last night, debris still smoking two hours after the crash. now a u.s. official tells nbc it's likely a bomb may have brought down this russian jet. possibly planted by a baggage handler at the egyptian airport where the plane took off. >> we can't rule it out, but it's certainly premature to say that this is the cause. >> reporter: great britain suspended flights to and from that airport, calling the bomb theory a significant possibility. perhaps retaliation by a wing of isis in the sinai peninsula. >> russia recently has increased
its presence in syria, and so the fact that isis may want to respond is not unlikely at all. >> getting an explosive device onto an aircraft in this region is a real game changer for security. >> reporter: but not a huge concern in the u.s., experts say, where security makes it extremely difficult to get explosives on board. and it's still possible this plane suffered mechanical failure. >> no matter what happened, our hearts go out, obviously, to the families. >> reporter: 224 people died. the plane's black boxes will tell more. one is damaged. but so far no evidence of a bomb has been found at the crash site. now, u.s. satellites detected a heat flash where that plane was last known to be, but again, that could be mechanical failure or some sort of deliberate explosion. and just this morning, dara, we have learned that the russian safety regulator, air safety regulator, in other words, their version of the faa, has ordered met metrojet to ground the rest of its fleet while they do safety
checks on those planes. >> tracie potts in washington, thanks so much for those updates. now, a shocking turn in the case of a fox lake, illinois, police officer shot dead. investigators say officer joseph gliniewicz killed himself. it was part of an elaborate carefully planned suicide plot after years of stealing. crimes that authorities call the ultimate betrayal. here's nbc's john yang. ♪ >> reporter: just two months after officers from across the country mourned lieutenant charles joseph stunning announcement. >> this officer killed himself. >> reporter: authorities said gliniewicz had been stealing from a police program for young people and laundering the money for some seven years, that he killed himself because he feared an audit was about to uncover his criminal acts. police say some 150 investigators have pored through thousands of pages of physical records and tens of thousands of e-mails and text messages including this one sent june 25th. "you'll have to start dumping money into that account or you will be visiting me in jail!"
officials defended the massive days-long manhunt for the three men gliniewicz claimed he was pursuing. costing nearly a quarter of a million dollars the feirst day alone. they allege it was a carefully staged suicide. gliniewicz first dropping his pepper spray. a few feet later, his baton. and further on his glasses before killing himself. his semiautomatic weapon found 2 1/2 feet from his body in a grassy field. >> gliniewicz had significant experience staging mock crime scenes. >> reporter: even the two gunshots were carefully planned. investigators say the first hit his cell phone and bulletproof vest. the second fatal shot was fired into the upper chest from a gun placed under the bulletproof vest, hitting a major artery. >> joe was my best friend, my world, my hero. >> reporter: when asked if his wife knew about the theft, police wouldn't answer. in a statement her lawyer said "the family has cooperated with the task force's investigation
and will not comment at this time." in fox lake, anger and disbelief. >> he was too good of a person just to do that. i don't believe it. >> a source close to the investigation tells nbc chicago that gliniewicz's wife and son are under investigation in the case. and you may think that you've heard it all from donald trump, but today for the first time, you may hear something new. paid political ads. the 60-second radio ads will air in key early voting states, iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. as for tv ads, new data from an nbc analysis shows a whopping 95% of tv ad spending in the gop race has come from outside groups and super pacs. the opposite is true for democrats. the campaigns themselves pay for 95% of their tv ad spending. now, as ben carson continues his book tour, nbc news has obtained his campaign's updated pared-down version of a proposed group letter to tv networks for primary debates, but should he be looking over his shoulder at fast-rising candidates?
nbc's hallie jackson reports. >> reporter: marco rubio in the media scrum and the spotlight in new hampshire where he's five times more popular now than before last week's debate. picking up for support from his senate colleagues, more money from an influential billionaire. all of it means more scrutiny. >> marco's got the big bull's-eye on his back right now. >> reporter: for rubio, renewed questions about how he used a state party credit card when he was a florida legislator, admitting he charged personal expenses to the card but paid them. two years worth of credit card statements still not disclosed. so why not put them out? >> we are. if there were special expenses, i paid them. if this were party expenses, the party paid them. it's that straightforward. >> reporter: a state commission found no ethics violations but even rubio acknowledges this opens him up to attacks from rivals. >> marco rubio has a disaster on his finances. he has a disaster on his credit cards. >> reporter: trump now dealing with new controversies, facing
fire from latino activists with more than half a million people petitioning to keep him off "saturday night live" this weekend. >> so let me just say this. ben carson is a complete and total loser. >> reporter: and his campaign now backtracking after trump's account retweeted a photo of jeb bush in a sombrero and next to a swastika. jeb bush now on a bus tour to reset his campaign and rebrand his image with the help of a media consultant who's encouraging him to be himself. which in new hampshire has meant alternating between animated and intimate. >> look, a lot of us have had family issues related to drug addiction. my precious daughter was caught in a pharmacy, actually. i mean, i've suffered with this as a governor and as a dad, and i know so many people that have had similar kind of experiences that together we can fix this. >> that was hallie jackson reporting. tomorrow night, it is the first in the south democratic candidates forum at 8:00 p.m. on
msnbc. so if you have a question for the democratic candidates, now is your chance to ask. submit your question usin using #msnbc2016 on twitter. for more information, visit elections.msnbc.com. and tune in to see if your question was selected. filmmaker quentin tarn teen toe is reacting to comments he made at an anti-police rally. >> i am a human being with a conscience, and when i see murder, i cannot stand by, and i have to call the murdered the murdered and i have to call the murderers the murderers. >> now, police organizations around the country are calling for a boycott of tarantino's upcoming movie. the filmmaker joined msnbc's chris hayes for an exclusive interview. >> were you surprised by the frankly the vitriol with which thief responded to those comments? >> well, yeah. i was surprised. i was under the impression i was
an american and that i had first amendment rights and there was no problem with me going to an anti-police brutality protest. and speaking my mind. and just because i was at an anti-police brutality protest doesn't mean i'm anti-police. basically, you know, there was a lot of people at that rally. and we were all crying for -- we were crying for a lot of things, but there was one thing in particular which was stop shooting on our people. we want justice, but stop shooting unarmed people. but they don't want to deal with that. they would rather -- they would rather start arguments with celebrities than examine the concerns put before them by a citizenry that has lost trust in them. i'm not a cop hater. but patrick lynch, that's the way they attack me is calling me a cop hater. that's the way that milwaukee county sheriff david clark who was on fox all the time says that i'm putting police in danger by standing up for the
rights of unarmed citizens who have been killed by the police. but at the same time, they say that about anybody who acknowledges that there's a problem in law enforcement in this country right now is considered by law enforcement part of the problem, whether that be me, whether that be bill de blasio, whether that be president barack obama. >> his next film "hateful eight" is due in theaters christmas day. let's get down to business with cnbc's landon dowdy. >> good morning. watch shares of facebook today. they hit an all-time high last night as the social media giant's beat wall street forecasts. facebook has 1.55 billion users who log on at least once a month. the company is also launching a new app called notify next week that alerts users to articles on sites such as mashable and "the washington post." the fda approves glaxo smith kline's new drug to treat severe asthma. it's an add-on to other asthma treatments given once a month by injection, it reduces levels of

it was nice of them to take that. we'll give ourselves a hand here. >> yeah. >> bob, i have to ask you about this. these are fascinating details coming out about jon meacham's new book on george h.w. bush including these scathing criticisms of dick cheney and donald rumsfeld. what do you make of them calling cheney an iron ass and rumsfeld an arrogant fellow? >> well, i never thought that i'd be able to say these words on television and get away with it, but arrogant fellow, that's pretty strong stuff. the complaints that the first president bush is making about the administration of his son sort of feeds the impression that his son was maybe over his head and was handled by a puppet like a puppet by those particularly cheney and rumsfeld. and it's going to feed an impression that's probably going to be harmful to the candidacy of jeb bush. >> well, these are pretty scathing critiques. and this is just the beginning. so is this a game changer on how we'll view w.'s legacy? >> well, a lot of people already view him as being over his head
and somewhat of a puppet. so i don't think it's going to change opinions at all, but it's certainly going to be an interesting one because it comes from the father of the bush clan. >> well, it is interesting because george w. says that his father never said those things to him, so what's coming out in the book it's going to be more interesting to see. now, just to follow up on this, what about these revelations? do you think they're going to help or hurt jeb bush's struggling campaign now? >> well, i would imagine that the jeb bush people right now are crafting some sort of response that's going to get away from the controversy because he's got enough controversies of his own. >> true. well, this book also reveals that donald trump had political aspirations, and that goes as far back as 1988 because he wanted to be mr. bush's running mate that year. a few differences in their campaigns, do you think? >> well, you know, we ended up with dan quayle, so one has to wonder whether donald trump would have been much of a stepdown. but you know, he's risen in the world. first he wanted to be vice
president. now he's appearing on "saturday night live." >> it's going to be very interesting this weekend. do you think anyone interested in this election is going to miss him hosting "snl" with all this controversy swirling about? >> well, i know that i'm going to get in trouble with some of the viewers here, but i'm certainly going to watch. >> absolutely. well, we'll be there, too. bob franken, thank you so much for your input. >> thank you, dara. well, we'll have more.
