and so it begins. with e*trade's investing insights center, you can spot trends before they become trendy. e*trade. opportunity is everywhere. we start with 2016, the fourth republican debate coming up tonight in milwaukee. only eight candidates making the main event tonight, down from ten. chris christie, mike huckabee did not have the poll numbers. they will however be at the earlier undercard debate. one of the key story lines, jeb bush versus marco rubio. mentor versus protege. the fireworks have already started with this "new york times" story. it quotes unnamed sources who say bush's super pac is planning a devastating new line of ads against rubio. but the ink was betterarely dry
rubio's story before this video rebuttal aired. take a look. >> i'm a huge marco fan. he's probably the most articulate conservative today. >> so proud of his high voltage energy. i'm so proud of his enthusiasm. so proud of his eloquence. >> i'm a huge marco fan. i'm marco rubio and i approved this message. weenchl >> we have it all covered. kasie hunt following the bush campaign, hallie jackson is on the trail of donald trump and chris jansing. is marco rubio going to be under attack again or has jeb bush decided his approach will be more cautious? >> reporter: good afternoon. i think the latter is more likely. i think we are going to see a jeb bush here who is going to try to focus on his record, his conservative record and focus on
policy proposals instead of trying to turn fire on marco rubio. i think you will see him try to contrast more with hillary clinton than with his former protege. they know that it didn't necessarily work out so well in the last debate and bush isn't necessarily comfortable being the person executing those attacks. i talked with him in my interview with new hampshire last week and he said he believes people need to be vetted but he's not necessarily the one to do the vetting. that "new york times" story in many ways has played into the marco rubio camp's hands. they feel as though there are a lot of republicans out there who feel like while they are supportive of jeb bush they don't necessarily want to see him beating up on someone who is a new face in the party, somebody who brings diversity, somebody who they like a lot. in many ways that's been a challenge. i would point out that the ad that is reportedly been created by this super pac is focused on abortion, and the focus there is the general election.
[ inaudible ] saying marco rubio can't win a general election. i had one private source saying hillary would gut him like a fish so that's where they're going behind the scenes with this. >> you got a chance to speak with reince priebus, the rnc chair, and talk about the anticipation of tonight, especially as we watch the ebb and flow of the campaigns. >> reporter: reince priebus of course, they have been in a little bit of hot water after the last debate. obviously the campaigns got together, had the meeting to try to change some of the rules. coming into this debate, the conversation's changed in so much as mike huckabee and chris christie not on the stage here. chris christie in particular has seen a bounce in new hampshire polls. he's had a strong couple of weeks. obviously you will remember that viral video where he talked about drug addiction in a very moving way. he's creeping up in the early state polls but right now, those
early state polls aren't being included in the criteria for the debates here. when i asked chairman priebus about it, he said he does want to see more early state polling incorporated into the debate criteria down the line. the rnc doesn't have official control over that. ultimately it is the network's decision. but that would be what priebus would suggest in the future. >> kasie, thanks. hallie jackson is following donald trump's campaign. what are you hearing about his biggest target tonight? will it be ben carson? >> reporter: potentially. yeah. i think you will see trump maybe go after a lot of the folks on this stage as he has been doing, even in the last 24 hours. we saw that tweet storm against marco rubio, who may be another target. ben carson, obviously trump has been talking about this for awhile, talking about carson in the same breath that he says he likes dr. carson, he's a nice guy, he's also picking up this line of questioning about carson's anecdotes about his life story. trump capitalizing on that. you may also see donald trump go after jeb bush, any number of candidates onstage, as has been
his past practice. two quick notes. as we talk about the potential for trump to go after rubio as we saw just even last night, the rubio team, you talked about the new ad coming out from rubio online this morning with jeb bush saying hey, i'm a big marco rubio fan. that wasn't put together in the last eight hours. they didn't come up with that as soon as that "new york times" article was published. that's been in the works for awhile. while there may have been finishing touches put on that, the campaign was ready to go knowing this attack would likely come. the other point on the abortion issue, that is something that may not be bad for marco rubio in the primary given that he is trying to play to this very conservative gop base. talking about trump, these may be lines of attack, threads trump picks up on tonight. here's what he had to say about ben carson. i find this interesting. >> he's got a pathological temper or something and he wrote that himself in the book. i'm trying to figure out what's going on. you hit somebody in the face with a lock, go after your
mother with a hammer, do all of these things and you are trying to justify that yes, you did them and that's supposed to make you credible. >> reporter: so why is donald trump going after ben carson? look at the new poll. one of the new polls out today showing that carson is at the top of the heap right along with trump. marco rubio in double digits, ted cruz coming in in fourth place. that's the reason why trump potentially feels threatened. i spoke with an aide this morning who says trump is looking forward to tonight's debate. >> i can imagine. thank you very much. to our colleague chris jansing. chris, you had the exclusive saturday with ben carson who is fighting back saying this was the most scrutiny any candidate has ever gotten about inaccuracies in his bio. so his surrogates have been spinning the wheels a little differently as we have been ramping up for this debate. are you hearing about how he's prepping for tonight in anticipation of being a main target? >> reporter: well, they think this last week plus has been preparation for this debate.
they think this has been wildly unfair and you have heard it from carson himself and even though pundits and opponents don't necessarily agree, in fact, probably strongly disagree that no one has ever been vetted as much as he has, he has worked it to his advantage. look, people go after him tonight to some sense at their peril because the other thing that the mcclatchy poll shows is that he remains the most popular person in this race by far, so that adds sort of a level of confidence that they have. in addition, there have been a couple of stories out in recent days that they say back up what they have been saying about these articles that claim his personal history is not true. one of them from someone who went to yale with him and said what he talked about is something that happened there. in "parade" magazine, his mother, who sadly has alzheimer's disease, saying
nearly 20 years that the incident where he supposedly attacked a relative with a knife and didn't hurt him because it hit his belt buckle actually was true. so they are not only feeling as though they are ready for this. they are fund-raising off of it and off of what they say is unfair attacks by the media. >> chris jansing, hallie jackson, kasie hunt, thank you for that report. we will be talking later on throughout the show. we turn now to nbc host and political correspondent steve kornacki, who joins me with a breakdown for what the candidates need to do tonight. it's different for each on how they can advance and stabilize. >> we have eight people onstage for the fourth republican debate, people on the main stage. we thought what we would do is come up with a to do list for the names up there tonight and for one who is not on that main stage. what will it take to have a successful night. let's start with the man we have been talking about, ben carson. we think the item, the number one item on his to do list is to be ready to go deep. here's what we mean by that.
obviously he is going to be ready if any of these questions about his past come up, whether the moderators ask him about that, if they decide to go down that road or if any of his fellow candidates decide to press those questions. we know he will be ready for that or at least prepared for that. but here's the thing ben carson's people really need to be ready for. that is the moderators of this debate, don't forget, this is the fox business channel. they have been promoting this as a debate that will focus on economic issues. that means ben carson has to be ready for some very detailed, probing and specific questions about his economic plan, about taxes, about issues, about policy. the risk here for ben carson is that he shows up ready to talk about his past, ready to talk about the hammer and the knife and all these sorts of things, then you start getting questions about tax brackets and economic policy. he has to be ready to go deep and show a command of policy that maybe he hasn't necessarily shown at all times during this campaign. how about the to do list for donald trump. you just played donald trump
there going after ben carson. he has been doing this on the stump and doing it in interviews, as hallie was saying. there is a risk in this for trump. the risk is that ben carson's poll numbers among republicans, not just how he's doing in terms of would you vote for this guy, but in terms much of do you liks guy. ben carson's personal popularity with republican voters is through the roof. the risk for donald trump is you end up looking like a bully. he went after jeb bush, it worked out well. he went after rand paul, it worked out well. will it be different if he decides to go after ben carson face-to-face. will he look like a bully in a way that hurts him. how about the to do list for jeb bush. we say no apologies this time. this is very simple. the last debate, they all showed up, everybody said jeb bush had the most he had to prove. he ended up after that debate having to call up his donors and apologize and say it wouldn't happen again. he's getting another chance tonight. how many more chances does jeb bush have if he does not show something new, something different, something fresh, something vigorous tonight?
let's see if he does that. how about marco rubio. we say keep hitting doubles. that has been basically his debate strategy all year. we have had three of these so far. he turns in very solid performances. you could say in that exchange with jeb bush last time over his senate vote, that was a home run moment. generally, the story for marco rubio has been he stands out for having solid, solid performances. you hit doubles, eventually people start to notice that batting average starts to get impressive. how about ted cruz. we say think before pouncing. what do we mean. we mean this. the number one moment for ted cruz in this campaign arguably was in the last debate when he went after the moderators. if you don't remember it, here it is. we can play it for you. >> the questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the american people don't trust the media. this is not a cage match and if you look at the questions, donald trump, are you a comic book villain, ben carson, can
you do math, john kasich, will you insult two people over here, marco rubio, why don't you resign, jeb bush, why have your numbers fallen. how about talking about the substantive issues people care about? >> great response for ted cruz last debate, going after the moderators, going after the media. obviously the instinct tonight for him will be to find another moment to do that again but he's got to be careful. as we say, this is the fox business channel's debate. this is more sort of the home team for the republicans, for the right, for the conservatives. so to go after the moderators tonight is riskier for ted cruz than it was to go after the last set of moderators. we say ted cruz has to think before pouncing and trying to create another one of those moments. >> it will be one to watch. as you point out, it will be interesting to see if they stay on topic with the economy or come out with other things. we shall see. thank you. developing now, the department of justice says it will go directly to the supreme court over president obama's immigration plan. this after a major setback late monday at the hands of an
appeals court and the ruling against protecting up to five million undocumented immigrants from deportation. in a statement, a white house official says the administration strongly disagrees with the fifth circuit's decision and here was josh earnest moments ago. >> we are confident in the power of the legal argument and that's i think why you have seen the department of justice make such a quick decision to move this on up the line to the supreme court. >> 26 states have challenged president obama's executive order along with many republicans, texas governor greg abbott called it another win for texas. pete williams is nbc news justice correspondent and joins me with more on this. pete, broaden out what the ruling means, especially for those folks who are looking for protection under this executive order. >> well, the order has been on hold ever since it was first announced because of these court challenges so it's still on hold as a result of this court decision. these were the policies that would allow people that are here
illegally to stay if they have children who are citizens and it would expand the program that lets young people stay who were brought here as children. it was a 2-1 vote of the federal appeals court. now they will go to the people you see here, the supreme court justices, the government will, hoping to overturn this decision. the state had argued, the states had argued that the government basically has no power to do this. the white house has countered that all it was doing was shifting enforcement priorities, going after the worst people because it doesn't possibly have the manpower to go after all 11 million people who are undocumented migrants. but the court said that this is more than that, that it would give benefits to people who are here illegally, it would give them social security numbers, they could qualify for work permits and texas which led this said that would impose big costs on the state, just for example, for all the driver's licenses it would have to issue. josh earnest says it's going to the supreme court because it's confident in the arguments. i think another reason is that
the only hope of getting this into effect while the president is still in office is to get this decided by the supreme court this term and if the government moves quickly, that could still happen. >> justice correspondent pete williams, thank you. coming up, what's next following major changes at the top of the university of missouri school system? i talk to the vice president of the student association when we come back. sea world moves to phase out a killer whale show but the change doesn't go far enough. an update from san diego. first the big story we are all talking about. steps being taken to reduce injuries among young soccer players restricting headers for young kids. u.s. soccer federation banning the practice for kids under 11. we dig into this later in the show with former u.s. women's team goalie. first, frances rivera with the bing pulse question. >> the new restrictions basically saying for kids under 11 they will be banned from the headers at games and practices. if you are 11 and 13 they are banning the header during games,
allowing during practices. we ask will this practice help prevent brain injuries? we are launching a bing pulse question on that. consider this, early voting with 77% saying yes, 23%, that now climbing, saying no. this comes as a resolution of 15 month litigation, class action lawsuit with those changes and restrictions announced just today. we will bring you the conversation as we ask you to continue voting. it's your grandpappy's hammer and he would have wanted you to have it. it meant a lot to him... yes, ge makes powerful machines. but i'll be writing the code that will allow those machines to share information with each other. i'll be changing the way the world works. (interrupting) you can't pick it up, can you? go ahead. he can't lift the hammer. it's okay though! you're going to change the world. hey! how are you?g? where are we watching the game? you'll see. i think my boys have a shot this year. yeah, especially with this new offense we're running...
i mean, our running back is a beast. once he hits the hole and breaks through the secondary, oh he's gone. and our linebackers and dbs dish out punishment, and never quit. ♪ you didn't expect this did you? no i didn't. the nissan altima. there's a fun side to every drive. nissan. innovation that excites. before i had the shooting, these feet grew up in a family diabetic of boys... married my high school sweetheart... and pursued a degree in education. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and she prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda-approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new, or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision.
common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and i love helping first graders put their best foot forward. ask your doctor about lyrica.
announcing new steps they say are aimed at improving racial tensions, including appointing the first chief diversity inclusion officer. chuck henson was named to fill that role on an interim basis. the board also promises more support for people on campus who have experienced discrimination. joining me, missouri students association vice president, brenda smith lazamo. some of the new steps the board will implement across the school system, let's look at the steps that will be on the columbia campus. mandatory diversity inclusion and equity training for faculty, staff and future students, continuing the comprehensive review of student mental health services to ensure that students are referred to appropriate resources. do you feel that this is a good road map to get that campus where it needs to be? >> absolutely. i think it's absolutely a start. i think it's very important for us to have representation of minority staff and faculty here
at the university of missouri. too often we go time and time again without having professors, mental health staff, different staff members who look like us sitting on our campus. i think that makes a huge difference. >> one thing we saw an issue with how this was being covered by student protesters against student reporters. i just want to play a clip of what happened on campus. take a look. >> these are people, too. back off. >> there's no -- >> you know what? [ inaudible ] back off. >> can i talk to you? >> no. you need to get out. you need to get out. >> no, i don't. >> you need to get out. >> i actually don't. >> who wants to help me get this reporter out of here? i need some muscle over here. >> we are getting word from sarah dalloff that students are now apologizing, handing out flyers to people calling this a teachable moment about what it means to have journalists there.
the flyers talk about the first amendment right to occupy the campus. the media has those as well, as they were part of the troop that helped turn around the campus. what do you say about that, that moment, teachable moment, and what people around the country need to learn from the tensions that are taking place on that campus? the cameras are going to go away soon. >> i'm really happy that this has been able to be used as a teachable moment. i think that it's very important for us to remember that at the basic level we all are humans, first and foremost. i actually was on site during this incident and what wasn't shown during this video is that several members of the media were very pushy, a little bit to the point of aggressive while trying to approach us while we were in the circle right after tim wolfe announced his resignation. i think the staff member that did speak up did so number one because they want to protect their students who were being hurt, who were in pain, so i
think it's a teachable moment for all of us. i also think it's important to remember that as student journalists, you cannot approach these type of situations with hostility and with anger because it only escalates the situation. >> we are looking at other campuses around the country, we have tensions at yale university, protests erupted at that university because an e-mail was sent to students urging them not to wear racially offensive halloween costumes. one professor complained universities are becoming places of prohibition. what's your feeling? do you believe that's a place we are heading for american campuses now? >> i personally am tired of hearing that first amendment rights protect students when they are creating a hostile and unsafe learning environment for myself and for other students here. i think that it's important for us to create that distinction and create a space where we can all learn from one another and start to create a place of healing rather than a place where we are experiencing a lot
of hate like we have in the past. >> brenda, thank you for joining me. beautiful blue skies over that campus. we know it's a new day, a new chapter beginning. we will keep our eye on what's taking place there. thank you. coming up, russia is firing back against scathing accusations of cheating and doping by its olympic track and field athletes. >> that's the thing people thought they could get away with it and have got away with it for so long. >> will the kremlin be forced out of the next olympics. a deer leaps into the road and you don't even have time to hit the breaks. the air bags go off... suddenly the police are there. when you call the insurance company, they want to know everything... how fast were you going? were there any witnesses? how much damage was done? the only thing they don't ask is, are you okay? at liberty mutual,

charged with stealing the personal information of more than 100 million customers. the trio already charged this summer with stock manipulation. among the victims, jpmorgan and the "wall street journal." we will continue to follow that story. we also have new details to report this afternoon on how sea world is going to replace its trademark killer whale show after announcing an end to the controversial performances in san diego. this decision came after slumping ticket sales and years of criticism by animal rights groups over treatment of the orcas. the ceo says it will debut a new whale exhibit in 2017. >> it's going to be focused more on the natural setting, natural environment and also the natural behaviors of the whale. it will have a strong conservation message. >> nbc's in san diego with the details. >> reporter: good afternoon. the shamu show is sea world san diego's trademark but now the company says it's going to stop the shamu show and all the
killer whale shows here at sea world san diego effective at the end of next year. in its place, critics are quick to point out in 2017, sea world here is opening a larger, more expanded what they call more informative wild orca experience for its customers. sea world says it's responding to what its visitors want, not to what critics are asking for. sea world says it's going to pull the plug on its shamu show at the end of next year. they are spending millions of dollars on expanding a new orca exhibit here so critics say this amounts to more of a bait and switch, that sea world is not really ending its very controversial show. instead, they are expanding it. sea world also says this will only affect sea world sandiego, the parks in orlando and san antonio will not be affect bide this decision. critics also point out the very controversial breeding program will also continue here at sea world. thomas? >> thank you.

as the republican presidential candidates get set to face off in tonight's debate, democrats are courting key constituencies. this morning bernie sanders spoke at a rally in washington supporting the fight for a $15 minimum wage. more on that coming up in a second. just an hour ago, hillary clinton unveiled her new veterans plan at a vets
roundtable in new hampshire. >> as we work to improve the va, i will fight as long and hard as it takes to prevent republicans from privatizing it as part of a misguided, idealogical crusade. >> all this comes as south carolina democrats are giving clinton a big lead in the state. according the a new monmouth university poll, clinton holds a nearly 50% or excuse me, 50 point lead over bernie sanders, getting 69% to sanders' 21%. nbc's kelly o'donnell following hillary clinton in new hampshire. what are vets interested in hearing about this plan from clinton today? >> reporter: good to be with you. the event sort of broke up. secretary clinton still in the hall behind us. when you played that clip about her saying she does not want the veterans hospitals as a part of the va privatized, there were definitely some applause moments for that. a number of questions from veterans, both of the vietnam era and the iraq wars, asking
about things like how can they get their services more quickly, how can some of the paperwork be reduced. of course, tomorrow being veterans day, this is timely. it also follows when secretary clinton was on with rachel maddow and talk about the va crisis not being as widespread as some people had thought. today, her detailed plan which was released by the campaign earlier today and then she talked about it and discussed it a bit more with the veterans and those gathered here, that in some ways sort of offsets that comment, because she does acknowledge the big wait times and the backlogs. a lot of issues that do exist with the va. she also does leave open the possibility of some use of private doctors for specialized services but she doesn't want the va hospitals overall made private. >> kelly o'donnell, thanks so much. as we mentioned, we've got developing news when it comes to the minimum wage and protests in 270 cities across the country. frances is back with more.
>> this group is called fight for 15 and today, these protests and walkouts, really is the largest protests yet since three years ago when they first started the rallies. take a look at the massive crowds forming in boston. they are expected to gather and protest and parade through the state house. tens of thousands of fast food workers across the nation walking off the job in protest, demanding that $15 an hour to support themselves and their families. so the protests will be around the country today from houston to milwaukee, philadelphia, new york, boston. they are hoping to get the attention of presidential candidates like senator bernie sanders who joined a rally today as thomas mentioned moments ago. >> there are a number of senators who get served by people right here and they should know that if you are serving them, they have got to
start serving you. >> let's take a look at how the law stands. the states in green have a higher minimum wage than federal minimum of $7.25. the states in blue have the same as the federal rate. the states in yellow have no minimum wage laws. opponents say raising the minimum wage would force businesses to boost their prices. they also argue it will force layoffs but those who are pushing for these out of all those cities we see in protest today, more than the financial benefit, a lot of it is about their dignity as well. a lot of them putting the political stand, more than walking off the job, a lot of them walking to their local city halls and a lot of them protesting outside the republican presidential debate in milwaukee. >> interesting to see if that topic comes up and where the candidates on the right fall. thanks so much. appreciate it. we are also following this major scandal rocking the sports scene around the globe. russia is accused of widespread
state-supported doping to improve the performance of its olympic athletes. this could lead to russia's suspension from the next year olympics coming up in rio. russia is not taking the accusations lying down. their sports to them are very important. keir simmons joins me with the details. how are they fighting back? >> well, they are fighting back because all of them across various branches of the russian state are condemning this report in various ways, strongly and less so. the olympics officials, the athletic officials in russia describing the report as biased and saying that it is an attack and even president putin's spokesman condemning the report. this morning, president putin's athletes are facing world condemnation. with the rio olympics less than a year away, russia may have no business competing on the world stage, declared the u.s. anti-doping agency.
according to a report that reads like a cold war spy thriller, russia's secret agents and the mysterious moscow laboratory were used for state-sanctioned doping. a russian athlete and trainer secretly filmed drugs being handed out like candy. the footage first shown in a german documentary last year. >> that's our system in russia. things only work with pharmaceuticals. >> reporter: across the globe, athletes are outraged. an american athlete who in 2012 finished fifth in the 800 meters. >> it's about you putting out an honest effort, honest time and energy, and emotion. and being cheated out of it, you can't ever get back those moments. >> reporter: russians took gold and bronze in that same race. but now according to the report, they and eight more athletes and coaches should be banned for life.
surrounding london's olympics, sabotage. london's mayor stunned. >> it was i very successful games, one of the greatest games ever. there have been very serious allegations made against the russian team. >> reporter: at the olympics in sochi, president putin celebrated. now the world anti-doping agency says the 2016 olympics must be protected. >> there are many developments through the day today, thomas, but one of them is the olympic committee saying that some athletes may have their medals removed as a result of this report. >> wow. thank you very much. keep us posted. now back here at home, we move on to bold new steps being taken to prevent head injuries among young soccer players. the u.s. soccer federation has unveiled new rules on heading the ball in an effort to reduce the number of concussions. the new guidelines call for children 10 and under to be banned from heading the ball during any official session, practice or game.
now, for kids between the ages of 11 to 13, players will be allowed to head the ball during games only. joining me is brianna scurry, former goalie for the u.s. national team. nice to see you. >> nice to see you. how are you? >> i'm great. you have been outspoken about this issue of concussion awareness. your career ended in 2010 as a result of one. of course, those concussions came about differently for you as a goalie. what's your reaction to these new guidelines and do they go far enough? >> i'm excited about the new guidelines. they are a first step. let's be clear about that. they are a first step. many concussions are caused by situations that are created by heading the ball, but several situations like my own was a head to knee concussion and those would not be covered by these initiatives. however, there is a segment in the initiative that talks about education and awareness, and that is something that i'm also
very happy about that the spotlight is now being shown that u.s. soccer and soccer in general does have a concussion situation that needs to be addressed. i am glad that u.s. soccer is starting to take that first step to address it. >> so as we look at this, we are also asking our viewers what they think of our pulse question today, will banning headers for kids under 11 help prevent brain injuries, go check it out, but as this was described to me by someone who i love dearly, my executive producer, being able to head the ball is a weapon in the game. this is something that kids try to learn to do, they want this distinction when they're on the field so how do we separate what these kids are learning on the field and official practice as opposed to what they're doing in their backyard trying to learn how to do this and bring that skill set later in life to the field? >> i think that's a fantastic question. because what needs to happen is education and awareness so the kids need to learn the proper way to head and learning it at a
younger age is definitely a great asset to have as a player. i think one of the things that's missing in this initiative is the idea of protection. i think protection is something that helps so by that i mean head gear. >> i just want to point out to everybody, we are looking at a video of you doing headers and teaching some kids in front of the goal proper skills with it. they are wearing head bands. explain what these are. >> yes. those are the unequal halos made by unequal.com. those kids are learning from myself and allie creager the proper way to head the ball. these kids can learn the proper way to head a ball and as time goes on, they can wear those head gears in the game, in practice, and feel more confident about lowering the risk of concussions. it helps the kids, helps the parents feel better about their kids playing soccer and learning and also, the head gear will help lower the risk of concussions that occurred in
situations like mine. >> is that head gear been vetted by the u.s. soccer federation to allow it for use? >> yes. the head gear is fifa sanctioned and is also astm certified and tested. it is allowed to be used at all levels of soccer. >> former u.s. national goalie, briana scurry, always nice to have you. thanks very much. so the middle of the country is bracing for potential severe weather. tornadoes, even possible parts of the midwest. we'll have that forecast for you. then a social media storm over the new talking barbie. even a four-letter word hash tag. yeah. we will tell you why some say the doll could be dangerous for your kids. viagra helps guys with erectile dysfunction get and keep an erection. talk to your doctor about viagra. ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain; it may cause an unsafe

so classic children's toy gotten a 21st century with groups up in arms. >> campaign for a commercial free childhood wants to say good-bye to mattel's new hello barbie saying the doll poses a threat to privacy because it can hold a seemingly real conversation with a child recording what the child says. >> i have to ask you something super important. what do you want to be when you grow up? >> i would like to be a scientist. >> sometimes i get all excited about science and i just want to shout out to the world, i love zoology. do you ever have that feeling? >> pretty wild to watch. we're joined by olivia sterns. let's talk about when the doll is hitting shelves or the potential of hitting shelves if the backlash doesn't get it boycotted altogether. >> it is due to come out this month.
essentially the way it works is hello barbie is an interactive wi-fi connected doll that speaks to your child and listens to what it's saying and over time learns from the conversations and those conversations are stored on a cloud remotely. i should point out that the doll is not eavesdropping. it is not always on. you have to press the belt buckle of barbie to enable the microphone. >> two things that as a mom of daughter that plays with daughter, wi-fi and cloud and in doing that, stirred up intense reaction like brad jones tweeted the private conversations shouldn't be shared with strangers. meredith posted this of barbie with the word nsa and sky net repeated over and over. what happens in the cloud and wi-fi to those recordings to accompany and mattel get the conversations? >> what parents are rightly concerned about is it is not 100% clear what mattel and toy talk the software company could
do with the transcripts. they have an f aq session saying it may share certain transcripts of recordings with mattel solely for the purpose of enabling mattel to improve the consistents. but a few sentences later the facts state it's shared with third party vendors to assist with recognition, artificial intelligence and conducting research and development. so, that raises a lot of questions. it is not clear and of course privacy advocates are concerned anything that lives on a cloud could be inappropriately accessed, plus some privacy rights activists have said they're concerned about what could happen to these transcripts. for example, somebody said what if it ends up -- the recording in court in a custody case or a divorce case? >> keep it simple with the dream house. >> thank you. mattel said they're committed to security and take steps to ensure it is applicable with
laws and standards. thank you again. when we come back, the melee in milwaukee. what do look out at the republican debate tonight in milwaukee. i'll be joined by chris matthews and chuck todd and talking about it earlier just a little bill while ago with a goalie. will the new rules on kids and headers in soccer make a difference? i'll talk to the executive director of the legacy association. you can weigh in with your thoughts. ♪ the way i see it,

will it face new scrutiny on the stage tonight? will donald trump be the rival to put the doctor in the hot seat? here was the donald just last night in illinois. >> this is a strange election, isn't it? you stab somebody and the newspaper says you didn't do it. and you say, yes, i did! i did it! no, you didn't. yes, i did! this is the only election in history where you're better off if you stab somebody. what are we coming to? >> then there's jeb bush and marco rubio. are they friends turned foes? set for another showdown. rubio's campaign releasing a video this morning. >> what marco has, i think, is something that the republican party needs to have which is a hopeful, optimistic message based on our principles. i'm a huge marco fan. >> joining from milwaukee, chris
jansing and kasie hunt. from washington, chris matthews, host of "hardball" and here with me, chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." chris, let's start with you because we have donald trump and dr. ben carson neck and neck in the polls. what are you hearing on the ground there about whether or not donald trump will come out guns blazing for carson? >> reporter: yes. a key question of the debate, thomas, and it will be fascinating to see. remember the last debate he didn't go after carson but carson was ahead? afterwards people asked him about it. donald trump shrugged and said, i like the guy. well, he certainly has changed the tune over the last week or so. starting with some of these questions about the biography of ben carson and him tweeting about the lies, what he calls the lies. and then you just what he was doing last night in that auditorium making fun of the sort of state of the campaign.
ben carson said he's ready for it. in fact, if anything the team feels that the last week prepared him for this. he is not a guy that naturally likes to go on the attack or change his demeanor. but they say he is ready to go for whatever this debate brings his way. thomas? >> we'll all be watching. chris jansing in milwaukee, l thanks so much. we know that the bush campaign has a lot of eyes on it tonight. performance pressure. are they feeling more confident about how they will go in to the debate this evening and questions of going after rubio? >> reporter: a lot of pressure, thomas, and i think that they learned a lot from what happened last time, main cli that bush struggled to level the attack at marco rubio and they know, they believe he's stronger pivoting to policy messages, talking about conservative record in florida as they would put it.
that's ground territory that bush is much more comfortable living on. in many ways the rubio campaign is more eager to stoke the flames of this back and forth between the two of them being somewhat gleeful in putting out this online spot focused on rubio or on bush's comments. the show you really quick is i spoke with chairman priebus today about the polling and how the candidates were set on the stage tonight. take a listen. >> i certainly think it's reasonable that when you get closer to iowa, south carolina, new hampshire that we would want to see if we can incorporate early state polls. >> reporter: christie bounced but they're not considered. >> that's right. but as we get closer to states, it is appropriate. not that much different than 2011 by the way. if you go back and go do a spread sheet and go look at how those early debates were calculated, ask jon huntsman about making early, you know,
making the early stage on the debate. >> reporter: not sure chris christie will appreciate that comparison to jon huntsman who did not make it to south carolina last time around, thomas. >> kasie hunt in milwaukee's for us, thank you. i want to bring in chuck todd here and also chris matthews host of "hardball." chris, let's start with you about jeb bush and had a coach he's been working with. do you think that that is going to help him meet the pressure of performance he needs to have a great night tonight. >> yeah. i don't see it. i mean, we haven't seen it yet let me put it that way. i think -- they're not in the same league, he and trump and rubio. i think trump and rubio are the stars in terms of television performance. trump is almost irresistible character on the stage and rubio similar phonic to take a moment and deliver something really beautiful, something that really
resonates and coherence and sells him as well as the strong message he puts out. it seems like that jeb bush is always trying to -- even tilts his head sideways in a weird way like getting through a low ceiling and doesn't come through with confidence and showing since this and i think it's going to continue through tonight. >> let's talk about this, chuck. something in first read from you and the political team talk about. it's the leak in "the new york times" that raises a lot of questions and it's about the new bush ads attacking rubio. in the article, the question raised is bush superpac telegraphing the attack or internal sabotage. why would the right to rise folks leak in this? what's the motivation? >> that's -- no part of this story good for bush. every part is good for rubio. rubio had a web video this morning. you played a piece of it. and i had talked with some bush people and some supporters who
had said the time -- you know, as much as they want to drop the hammer on rubio, they know they're going to be -- if bush will come back, he has to get through rubio and can't do it until bush is back on his feet and failed so badly in trying to go after rubio in the first place to then telegraph another -- right now, rubio's sort of got a coat of teflon on him. maybe other people coming after him. that's a different story. anything coming from bush it's just sitting out here. it really -- i don't know what bush's strategy was going into tonight about going after rubio. this piece makes it that much harder because now the most stinging rebuke, that rubio had to him is saying someone told you this would help your campaign, governor. i mean, well, here it is again. it looks too tactical. >> a political kneecapping in front of everybody. >> that's being kind. >> chris, let's ask you about dr. ben carson. donald trump is out there. first read put out the fact what
he's been saying, donald trump, that is, about ben carson writing about the pathological temper, talking about it as a pathological disease and can't be cured. what type of night do you think ben carson has after facing scrutiny over the historical inaccuracies about anecdotes in some of the books? do you think trump goes after him? >> the format tonight is interesting. we have a side -- chuck knows this. almost a side competition. here you have fox financial. they're really competing with cnbc here in the debate we just had on cnbc. they'll try to show they can show a disciplined debate and focus entirely on substance. that's what you will see tonight. that's a side competition going on tonight. so the moderators are going the try to keep it away from that street fight. but the news, of course, would be if there was a street fight. i just want to -- this isn't exactly the answer to you. this is the way i look at this. trump's great strength of day one is nationalism. he appeals to the working class white guy especially out there feeling that the country is
betrayed. his or her country is betrayed on trade issues, on immigration policy, where they think it's being thrown away, government spending. they feel that big shots in washington, cultural elite betrayed them. given away their country. they're nationalistic. if trump can come across tonight on economic issues, the guy to be kind of a putin on the issue of economics, look out for the average working guy, against the elites who a lot of working people feel betraying them hrks's back in front of the fight. getting into the peeing matches with dr. carson it distracts like "snl" distracted from the message. he's like the redskins receivers this sunday. he had the ball in the hands and dropped it. he had it. he had nationalism. cutting edge. elect tri if ied the country. the only politician who's serious about immigration and trade. the only guy willing to fight for the little guy and then he threw it away with the gamesmanship and clownery.
it's not going to help him. tonight is his night to be an economic nationalistic. fighting that tonight, he'll win tonight and can win this nomination on that front. stay on the front of economic national i678 and donald trump is the next republican nominee. if he sticks there and fights there and not distracted by the tv aspects of his campaign which, unfortunately, took him to "snl" and nowhere i think saturday night. >> chuck, the other guy that pretty much talks the talk, chris christie in the undercard debate. looking to capture maybe a little light nng a bottle for himself. is he going to bring that and shine in the undercard debate? >> it is tough. i mean, carly fiorina pulled it off because it was the first undercard debate. graham had a tremendous undercard debate last time. got him nothing. frankly, i thought both graham and santorum before that, got them nothing. let's pick up on something chris said w. the shrinking of this field, on stage there, of those
eight candidates, you know, he's basically the only economic populist on the stage. mike huckabee is one. rick santorum is another. those two guys found success four and eight years ago economically on this message of saying, hey, being the one few republicans going to the working class guys saying, hey, we know corporate america isn't treating you well either. trump is almost alone on here and may be an opportunity for him in that he doesn't -- he's mott competing in that same lane with a huckabee good on the same issues that chris is talking about or even santorum. >> we'll all be watching tonight. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> don't forget to tune in and watch chuck here 5:00 p.m. eastern time and then at 7:00 p.m. eastern for chris and then stick around for his post-debate insight and analysis tonight. thank you again. three well received debates in a row for rubio. will it be enough to move bush
supporters to his side? bringing in wisconsin congressman sean duffy supporting rubio. nice to see you. >> you, too, thomas. >> you get to be close to home for all of this which we're watching, all watching tonight and trump is hitting your candidate hard coming to immigration. jeb bush is raising concerns about rubio's extreme position on abortion. do you think that your candidate rubio is repaired for this line of questioning and attack? >> so a couple of things. i don't think any of the candidates do well when they attack other fellow candidates on stage. going after the media, they do well. but i don't think they differentiate themselves by attacking each other. listen. when someone goes after marco rubio about being pro-life it is like fighting for the middle class. most voters are pro-life in the republican primary. and most of them are looking for a leader who's going to set out
a vision to help grow the economy, better paying jobs, help us have a stronger foreign policy and i think marco hits all of those templates. for us in the midwest where we love the brats, beer and cheese curds, we also like guys who work hard, who come from nothing and make their way on their own. here we don't have guys who make it from the last name or from the trust fund. they're scrappers and why marco does so well here in wisconsin. >> do you think from a financial perspective to overcome the issues? as you say, he resonates because of a purer american story of making his own way in this country. reuters has analysis for him tonight and doesn't have the big money donors and needs to win them over, the republican do no, sir with the bank accounts. do you think that that's the trick? get over his own financial indiscretions and explain them away enough to lock in those big money donors? >> so two points. one i think you have seen a
transition of big money donors really taking a second look at mr. bush saying is he the guy that can lead the party? and then they're starting to look at rubio and he had a fund-raiser in wisconsin last night and some of the best and biggest donors were there and i think is a testament to what's happening for marco around the country. in regard to the attacks on marco's own personal finances, i think he's done a really good job of pivoting and making this about the american people and shares their story and when liberals or republican candidate tris to make that an issue, i think most americans especially republican primary voters and independents look at what is a scandal and marco rubio with a credit card -- out of the wallet a couple of times, they don't see that as a scandal but four dead americans in benghazi that's a scandal or lobbying and given the clinton foundation is a scandal, too. from a republican perspective, i
think the candidates are better off looking at bernie sanders and hillary clinton opposed to trying to take cheap shots at the fellow republican candidates of on the stage. they'll talk about regulation and taxes and what that means for middle income americans and job growth and opportunity and i think that's important as folks watch tonight. >> rubio supporter, congressman duffy of wisconsin, thank you, sir. good to see you. >> hey, thank you. we turn to developing news an appeals court with a blow to the president's plan to shield millions from deparation. whe why the administration wants to take it to supreme court. with a renewed focus on airport security across the globe, could u.s. aviation be at risk of an insider attack? parents should want to hear this one. there's a big change coming the way of your kids and how they play soccer with headers banned. also the subject of the bing pulse question today, frances.

so developing now, new reaction of the white house after appeals court created a major setback to president obama's immigration executive action. the ruling against protecting up to 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. >> we're confident in the power of the legal arguments and that's why i think you've seen the department of justice make such a quick decision to move this on up to the line to the supreme court. >> the department of justice says it will go directly to the supreme court over president obama's immigration plan. now, 26 states have challenged the president's executive order along with many republicans. texas governor abbott called it another win for texas. laura vasquez is an analyst for the national council of laraza. how much of a setback is this? if josh earnest is correct about the right language of a law in
this country why would it be stopped through the courts? >> well, thanks, thomas. and as you said, this is a deeply disappointing decision from the 5th circuit court of appeals which ignores decades of legal precedent and leaves millions of american families in limbo. it is something that the dissenting opinion was very clear in saying that the actions taken by president obama not only have legal precedent but they're the quintessential use of discretion and who's an enforcement priority and who should come forward and receive a reprieve of deportation and the ability to work on the books and contribute additional tax income through this. >> this is really put a lot of people, though, certain people that thought that this could be a way to finally be in this country legally and be a legal
immigrant. they've been in limbo this whole time since the executive order came down and now another hurdle that they'll go through in this waiting process. are there other options for people that were looking to this as a saving grace in the meantime for the process of becoming properly immigrated in america? >> well, millions of families are now looking to the supreme court. these are parents of u.s. citizens. they are long-time members of communities across the united states who are looking for the supreme court to say that, yes, the president used his authority, this was legal an they're continuing the look for that opportunity before the end of this court's term to be able to come forward and get this reprieve from deportation so this is the option that families are looking to now. certainly, the permanent solution that is still desperately needed comes from congress and certainly that

security overseas and here at home. frances? >> thomas, while homeland security is working to ramp up security jefr seas there's renewed scrutiny at home here in the united states. this is images here from last night at miami international airport where a suspicious looking package caused massive delays. it was eventually deemed not to be a threat. but that downed metrojet has many of us on edge and there's not a successful terrorist attack against the u.s. domestic flight against 9/11 but security consultants are similarly worried. here's nbc's tom costello. >> reporter: it's a massive security challenge every day. 25,000 domestic flights, a million checked bags, 2 million passengers and thousands of airport workers, restaurant employees, ramp workers, baggage handlers and okay sestito secure areas. renewed focus on how good airport security really is and could u.s. aviation be at risk from an insider threat? >> giving somebody an airport

background check. but while a few airports require all workers to go through security screening every day, most do not. simply too many workers and the former tsa chief says too often the agency doesn't hear about airport workers who have had run-ins with the law. >> for example, somebody gets arrested that may or may not be made known to the employer or to the fbi which then passes it to tsa. >> reporter: near universal agreement airport security could always get better an i that's tom costello reporting. certainly something to keep in mind as the travel, the holiday season kicks up. a lot of people hitting the flights. interesting what happened with miami yesterday about 50 flights were affected at 1 point. s.w.a.t. came in and people had to raise their hands and scary at this day and age, thomas. >> thank you so much. still ahead, a big change to the way your kid is going to be playing soccer. headers, banned. all of this to help kids avoid

turn to roc® retinol correxion®. one week, fine lines appear to fade. one month, deep wrinkles look smoother. after one year, skin looks ageless. high performance skincare™ only from roc®. it is a game changer in the world of kids soccer. u.s. soccer announced new rules that will eliminate heading the ball in youth soccer and the new guidelines aim to reduce the number of concussions in young players and rules call for children 10 and under banned from heading the ball in a 0 kishl session, practice or game and now for kids between the ages of 11 to 13, players will be allowed to head the ball in games only. joining me now is chris noinski of the concussion legacy foundation, a member of the safer soccer campaign and a former wwe wrestlers whose career ended by a concussion. chris, good to have you here.
so obviously, your heart is in this to change what it means for the kids to grow up using their bodies in this way and the danger it puts them in. do you think the regulations are enough? >> well, yeah, i'm really happy to see u.s. soccer set an age and a guideline to start exposing children to the pretty serious risks. i mean, it doesn't necessarily go far enough but a big first step. >> do you think that the u.s. soccer federation is sending mixed messages with the guidelines. they do allow them to head in a game. why allow them to do it at all? >> that's a great question. i think as the guidelines come out, because we haven't seen everything yet, something like that is concerning because if a child doesn't know how to practice a header, they can't do it safely at all and recommend not heading at all until high school. >> all right. so that is the safest way to avoid a concussion and you launched the safer soccer campaign in 2014 and also trying
to teach kids the proper way to do this. do you think these new rules will prevent proper instruction and training? >> it remains to be seen. we need to get more detail. it's very critical that we understand that one third of concussions happen in soccer in middle school from kids attempting to head a ball an enso if we don't e almost nate that we have over 35,000 concussions a year that are preventable with the stroke of a pen so, you know, it's a great first step because it used to be able to head a ball at 6 years old. now we'll have kids a lot -- let their brains develop over time and safer when they're old. >> chris, great to have you on today. thank you for your time. >> thank you. i want to check in with frances rivera. the bing pulse question to do with this. >> will banning headers for kids under 11 help prevent brain injuries? we asked this question to our viewers and take a look at how
we look right now. this was at 27% now. now it's 57%. for those of our vuters saying yes. 43% say no. now a shift in the percentages now as those points rising and dropping accordingly. especially talking about this and saying prevent brain injuries and people say that practice is necessary, especially when it comes to this maneuver, a heading that is -- takes the skill and talent for many to do, especially when it comes to on the field and keep the conversation going as we continue these -- tallying the votes. we asked you will banning headers for the kids under 11 prevent the brain injuries? >> tighter with these numbers coming in. thanks so much. we'll talk again shortly. did you see this story about a dental hygienist taking on an 800-pound gator? christie who moonlights as a

welcome back, everybody. new details on the sea world decision to end the killer whale show at the san diego theme park. sea world faced criticism over the treatment of the killer whales. the company announced that a new exhibition is unveiled in 2017. a former orca trainer spoke to my colleague andrea mitchell about what this all means. take a look aif sea world stopped the breeding program and forced artificial insemination
program, they could evolve to a park such as universal studios who have these incredible rides where you could still have an immersive experience and teach about marine life and not have caged animals for your entertainment and for profit. >> joining me now is dr. reece halter who is conservation biologist. great to see you. sea world is ending the show in san diego and replacing it with an expanding exhibition. the ceo said we start everything by listening to our guests and so far that's what we have been hearing in california. they want experience that is are more natural and experiences that look more natural in the environment but it's not universal across our properties. what do you make of this concession, reece, about how they're doing for san diego and not in other spots? >> thomas, the writing's on the wall. last month i covered the california coastal commission, the ruling that captivity and breeding is over.
now, we have congressman adam schiff to introduce a bill to end captive breeding of orca and trying to repurpose themselves. what we're talking about is animal slavery. and it's not just animal slavery. these are the most intelligent creatures maybe on the globe. there's three populations. they do the dance better than any global creature that we know and it's time to #empty the tanks, baby. >> the documentary "black fish" got everybody to take a critical look at the way orcas respond in captivity and now with the announcement to the show, do you think that this is a real win, the traction is laid for animal rights activists? >> oh, absolutely. and i think what's going to happen, you'll see pretty quickly, thomas, across the nation they will be emptying the tanks, the rulings are going to come in and as for their future, i don't know.
don't really care. i would say that the experience is this. if you can't get on a boat to go on the ocean, get yourself a bbc wild and watch these things. watch my old hero and friend jacque cue sew. to know the ocean, you begin to love it. when you love something you protect it. >> we're seeing an aerial shot that showed the crowds not as big coming the theater parks. do you think, though, that sea world even though it's not working in san diego they have san antonio or orlando to fall back on? >> no. i think the message is very clear across the board that this is slavery. it's torture and people are uninterested and the more bad press, that i get, the share prices tumbled. tumbled in half and testimonible to half again so they're scurrying. >> when you say repurpose themselves and figure out what that means, what does it mean for their business model because
there are families out there saying that they have learned tremendously about animals through the service that sea world provided their kids. >> well, they've learned -- they have learned whatever they have been told but nature is a wild system and again these new documentaries that bbc does and discovery does and nat geo where we see the creatures in the wild, that's where the real comprehension of what's going on. i have never been to sea world. i wouldn't go there if my life depended on it. i don't know the propaganda. they're penned up and, thomas, their teeth, ones -- they're trying to commit suicide. they're gnashing the teeth until they have no teeth. this is heresy and it's wrong. >> reece, great to see you. thank you for your time. still ahead, a documentary on the human cost of war called
"debt of honor." >> for me, it's about the guys who saved my life. that i think about what they went through to get me out of there and i don't ever want them to regret it. for her she's agreed to give it up. that's today? we'll be with her all day to see how it goes. after the deliveries, i was ok. now the ciabatta is done and the pain is starting again. more pills? seriously? seriously. all these stops to take more pills can be a pain. can i get my aleve back? for my pain, i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap. hey! how are you?g? where are we watching the game? you'll see. i think my boys have a shot this year. yeah, especially with this new offense we're running... i mean, our running back is a beast. once he hits the hole and breaks through the secondary, oh he's gone. and our linebackers and dbs dish out punishment, and never quit.

so today the united states marine corpse celebrates the 240th birthday and the nation stops to honor all members of the military on veterans day tomorrow. as we celebrate the vets, there's reports of failures in the system meant to support them here at home. a new documentary by award-winning filmmaker rick burns chronicles the stories of the disabled veterans from the american revolution to today. take a look for yourself, a clip from "debt of honor." >> as long as we continue to find ways, one, to go to war and destroy life, and two, to save the lives of the people on the
battlefield, we'll continue to produce disabled veterans. >> wars are not over when the shooting stops. they live on in the lives of the people who fought them. >> louis pope is an advocate for disabled veterans and the producer behind the documentary. great to have you with me. i have a special place for vets. my dad is a vietnam vet and while he survived and is uninjured, he has stories about his friends that are just unbelievable. >> i know. >> and these are people that get interrupted in their lives to fight for our freedoms. why were you so attracted to bringing this story to life? >> my story began back in the 1960s when i was a young broadway actress involved in musical theater and i was asked to do a benefit at the russ rehabilitation center here in, you and at that time, i guess i
was young and naive. i had no idea about the horrors of war or the devastation that it can cause to human being's body and mind until i walked into that center and i saw dozens of disabled vietnam veterans, some without arms and legs. some mutilated, some so badly burned and some blind. my only prior exposure to that was when my dad used to take me to memorial day parades in philadelphia and at a distance i would watch the soldiers and sailors marching down broad street in philadelphia and it didn't prepare me for the suffering that i saw on the faces of those heroes right in front of me. or the history books. >> for "debt of honor" you pull putt up a million dollars of your own? >> i did. >> and why did you feel so
connected to this and why you wanted to get this made and why you want people to see this. >> because i went everybody -- my mother was a schoolteacher. i went everyone to know about the devastation that it can cause the human being's bodies and mind and the human cost of war. i want people to know about the human cost of war. >> do you think that most vets feel like we forget about them here at home? >> yes. i do. i had a lady once in a gym, she asked me what my t-shirt stood for. i said, life. leaders in furthering education. and she said, what do you do? i said i raise money to build a memorial which was my life's purpose and my whole life, that was my life's purpose to build a memorial dedicated to the sacrifices of disabled veterans and she said, well, why are you doing that? they volunteered, didn't they? >> so were you able to contain yourself? >> no. i cried. but i didn't let her see me cry. >> the memorial, though, you
were able to unveil, right? >> did. >> october 5th of 2014. >> that is correct. but i wasn't finished with that. it wasn't enough. there wasn't enough people i felt as i did that memorial, i was there in washington. it's a wonderful thing. we finally given our disabled veterans a permanent place of honor. >> well -- >> for all of them, 4 million living disabled veterans and all who died before them. 4 million living disabled veterans, that's a lot. you know? and they never had -- it was long overdue. so i finally decided that wasn't enough. >> the documentary is called "debt of honor," thank you for being here and bringing this together for everybody to see and learn from. appreciate it. we'll switch gears before we go and this has to do an update about seat belts standard in every car but not every school bus and that is about to change across this country. jeff rossen explains. >> reporter: school bus accident.
after school bus accident. children flying through the air. they aren't wearing seat belts. this will be dramatic and warn the viewer to show you the danger we staged a live crash here on "today." wow. as a parent myself, that is so disturbing to watch in person. the child dummies inside thrown around. look at the dents that it makes in the seat and the level of impact there. every year, kids are killed, thousands injured. so whyn't they strapped? the national highway traffic safety administration doesn't require seat belts on school buses. in september, i went to the top official. should there be seat belts on school buss? >> no question that the safest way to get to school in that big yellow bus. would safety belts make them safer? absolutely. >> why not mandate that right now? >> so that's really the question we have been looking at. >> reporter: now months later,
nhtsa taking action declaring seat belts save lives and going further, our goal is a three-point belt for every child on every bus. asking districts to do it voluntarily and if not rulemaking may follow. that top official speaks with nbc news again monday. >> i hope everyone including manufacture earls challenge themselves. why aren't we all doing everything we can to get the seat belt on the school bus? >> reporter: here's why it's so important. watch this crash test video. these dummies don't have seat belts on. look at the dummies that do. big difference. they stay in their seats. safety experts say it's a no brainer. >> looking at children from the age 0 to 5, they're correctly restrained in the backseat of the vehicle. that's the habit. they know that's safer. they get on the big yellow school bus. where are the seat belts? >> all right. that was jeff rossen reporting. we thank him for that and thank you for your time. i'll see you back here tomorrow
