inflaemd and inflammatory rhetoric about planned parenthood, about the sale of baby parts, about dismembering live babies, which was not accurate and not what the shown on the videos. when you use inflam at this rhetoric, you inflame people. it's this kind of rhetoric that helped create this environment. >> so is it what the shooter says, even though he may be deranged that you think has a direct link, correlation with what the pam, when exaggerate

6:24 am
>> what do we expect today? >> they're going to be trying to select a jury. the lawyers for both sides, the lawyers for the officers, as well as the prosecutors officers, trying to figure out if they can seat a jury in baltimore. the judge has said he will reserve the right to move the trial if they can't seat a jury. the question is -- baltimore is a city that is a majority black city. so black people are usually leaning toward not believing an officer's story and being pro prosecution in this case. so it's going to be interesting to see the questions they asked and the people they rule out and why. >> what did prosecutors say was porter's role in freddie's death? >> prosecutors say he made some
6:25 am
sort of nonpublic incriminating statement, that that state was that freddie gray asked for some type of medical assistance and the officer didn't take it serious enough. the charge is connected to the idea that he could have given freddie gray help but he didn't. the experts tell me it will be hard to prove that not getting that medical help would end up in freddie gray's death. >> if he gets acquitted, does that set the tone for the other trials? >> experts tell me that definitely sets the tone for the other trials. him going first, if he gets acquitted, it makes it hard with the other prosecutions. if he's not convicted, he obviously cannot be a witness. he can possibly be a witness but they don't want him to be a
6:26 am
witness if he gets acquitted because then you have someone to say i was put up on these same charges and i was acquitted so why would you convict somebody else that was in the car with me or was that around me. >> what do we know about the judge presiding on the case? >> the judge is really interesting. the judge has a really interesting background. he has made a name for himself in some ways by prosecutors police officers for misconduct all across the country. he's a federal prosecutor helping police officers in missouri, florida, helping convict these officers. people are saying these kind of interesting. on one side you can say he has experience, he's prosecuted officers successfully in the past but on the other side, he knows exactly what to look for so it could be harder for the prosecution to prove their case because this judge is go to say show me what i would have shown myself if i was the officer
6:27 am
here. this judge can be looking at this both ways. >> thank you for your time. >> police are trying to figure out what caused a bus load of students to overturn. one of the injured is reportedly in critical condition this morning. virginia police say the bus driver was charged with reckless driving but they are still investigating. >> pope francis is headed back to rome. >> the pope visited a mosque that -- to appeal for piece. >> and activists used ladders o

6:33 am
water. hes is expects a smuggler is on board. armed officers race over and find 14 men, women and children crowded on the small speed boat and a man who tries to cover his face. >> who is the driver? the driver of the boat? >> the man refuses to answer. they arrest him anyway. they find the boat's keys in his pocket. the officers aren't looking to arrest the refugees. 17-year-old effie says she's left syria because there are no schools in syria anymore, just war. when i asked her to describe her journey, she was overcome. several said the man was part of a smuggling ring that charged them nearly $2,000 each and efficiency the only one on the speed boat who didn't speak arabic. >> you're turkish? >> this is arrest number 49. but there are plenty more

one presidential candidate got a first hand look at the refugee crisis. republican ben carson was in jordan over the weekend. he met with syrians in several refugee camps. he said the syrians would rather stay where they are instead of coming to the united states even calling their refugee camps, "quite nice." >> the syrians want to be in syria. they want to be repatriated in their own country and they are looking for a mechanism to get there. but in the meantime, the

facilities are very satisfactory. >> taylor luck of "the washington post." thanks for being with me. drou think dr. carson accomplished what he wanted to accomplish on this trip? >> -- >> we just loss communications. i'm sorry, we're trying to establish that communication with a correspondent in jordan. we're going to try to reestablish that soon. but getting back to the big climate summit going on in paris, the president said he embraces the decision to put a dent in global warming. since 1997, the record for the
6:40 am
warmest year on earth has been reset four time. more than a billion people have been added to the population. carbon dioxide emissions are up nearly 2.5%, the seas have risen nearly 2.5 everyones and i want to bring our national reporter. tony, are people ready to make big changes? >> that is the question on the table right now where obama will be meeting to hopefully iron out the decisions. you see a republican party in
6:41 am
the united states unique among parties globally. according to pew, the republican party is the only party that does not want action on climate chang and is oppositional on the pearce talks. they have a delegation, they're trying to undermine president obama's delicate effort to bring them together there. our political party are in opposition to one another when it comes to actual action. >> what can we expect from places like india or china? >> this is another controversial point here. america has been the biggest contributor to global warming but china is the biggest yearly emitter of the gasses that cause it. in a deal earlier this year are china said okay, sure, we'll cut our emissions starting 2030, around there. we're not sure how much but trust us. nd india has 400 million people who don't have electricity and so
6:42 am
they're not making any promises other than their best effort to get away from oil and coal and get on to cleaner sources like wind and solar. some other developing countries are not doing as much. >> but when you have countries like china or india saying trust us, the fact is once you pass the trust issue and they don't do anything, what is actually being accomplished? >> that's a big question. kyoto was a legally binding treaty. the bush administration did not ratify. the bush administration said it not good for our economy. here in paris, there's a bit of a shift. it's not going to be legal binding. it's not going to be a treaty. a treaty obama would need congress to ratify it and congress made clear they will not ratify a climate change treaty. it's interesting where that
6:43 am
language lands. are they going to call it a protocol, are portions binding? it's not clear. right now it's not binding. anyone could back out at any time. >> retailers are rolling out more deals today, $3 billion in sales are forecast on this cyber monday. olivia sterns joins us from an amazon fulfillment center in new jersey. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jose. essentially this is the new north pole, one of more than 50 fulfillment centers that amazon has, this one alone more than 1 million square feet. it is the size of 24 football fields. amazon once again predicting another record breaking sales day today. this is actually the tipping point here. for the first time ever, jose, over the black friday thanksgiving weekend, more americans went shopping online
6:44 am
than they did in actual stores. according to one surveys, $10.5 billion was spent on black friday and thanksgiving. it sounds like a lot of money but it's actually down 10% versus last year. all the growth was in online. according to adobe sales were up 14% on black friday and thanksgiving to just about $3 billion, all this great news for retailers here on cyber monday. adobe predicting a record breaking $3 billion will be spent. that is 12% more than last year. in total the federal retail association thinks 50% of people will go shop today. watch for flash sales. don't just go back online once.

a winter storm warning is
6:50 am
currently in effect for parts of five states with a threat of heavy snow, freezing rain and sleet for the northern plains and upper midwest. this was the scene over the weekend in wyoming after a snow swept through the state causing more than 50 accidents. let me bring in nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> this is storm number two. now we're heading a little further north and this will be primarily a snowstorm. over the weekend that ice was really nasty stuff, especially oklahoma hit by far the hardest. on the weather map heading into the winter season, the green is the rain. the pinker shades, that's either sleet or freezing rain. the white is all snow. it is nice and simple when it is all snow like we have in omaha right here. you have a coating, it gets a little slippery. when you get the ice out there, then the snow on top of that is when you really start skating on the roads. that's going to be happening across iowa later today and tonight heading towards minneapolis. through today the heavy snow breaks out south dakota, minnesota. the evening ride home in areas like sioux falls, sioux city,
6:51 am
back up into southern minnesota will be the worst. tonight during overnight hours minneapolis gets heavier snows, areas of north dakota and even into portions of wisconsin, too. as far as tuesday goes, then we're okay, the storm begins to exit and it heads up into the northern great lakes. in addition to what's already fallen on the ground, this darker blue shade is six to eight inches of snow. that's from minneapolis just south of sioux falls back into south dakota. that's the bull's-eye. that's where a lot of kids will most likely get either a large delay or maybe even a school cancellation on the first day of december, tomorrow. we also have rain in the mid-atlantic. it's been very warm on the east coast but it's been kind of a gloomy november. charlotte broke their record for wettest november and you'll have a lot mr rain in the next two days. this purple shade is two to three inches of rain through tennessee and areas of virginia. cold air is in the west, we're still mild in the east. as we start december there's really no sign of the cold air beginning to spread. if anything it will start to
6:52 am
warm up. we have the big climate summit going on over there in paris. we are finishing a record breaking november. i know you know it down in florida. it's been well above average this november. we'll finish probably with our warmest florida november ever on record. areas in the northern plains have been seven to eight degrees above average. new york city is going to be either number one or number two for the warmest novembers we've ever recorded here. this is pretty incredible stuff that this november is off the charts warmth. a lot of it is part of el nino and a lot of it is probably climate change on top of it. >> we have been seeing such warm temperatures here, i think we're going to get a bumper crop of december mosquitoes -- >> your average this november has been 79 degrees. that's crazy stuff. >> then add to the rain and i'm telling you, these mosquitoes, it should be slowing down -- >> you're saying invest in deet. >> oh, my gosh -- they are huge now! bill, thanks. police in florida say they are conducting an active animal cruelty investigation after a
6:53 am
picture of a dog muzzled with duct tape appeared on facebook and almost immediately the post led to a storm of protests against the dog's owner. nbc's kerry sanders has details. >> reporter: for dog lovers around the world the owner of this dog is canine enemy number one this morning. katy brown. she's been in the doghouse since posting this picture of her dog muzzled with duct tape and the caption "this is what happens when you don't shut up." now there are howls of protests. >> i don't think anybody, let alone an innocent animal, should be treated like that. >> if brown thought the duct tape it was a way to get peace and quiet in her life, she was mistaken. despite pictures of her smiling with her pets and a second post, don't panic, everyone. it was only for a minute. but hasn't barked since. point made. katie brown had stepped in it. big time. dog defenders from every state in nearly a dozen countries weighed in on social media. a person who does this is a
6:54 am
disgusting human being. >> i have a whole case of duct tape with your name on it. tens of thousands of animal lovers inundated authorities with calls and e-mails, so many their server crashed, their switchboard went down and they were forced to ask for restraint. >> we know it happens but when you see it, it just puts it right in your face and it's too much. >> reporter: relatives say brown has received so many threats, she's now scared and in hiding. police say they have information the dog is okay but still want to see the pooch for themselves to be sure. kerry sanders, nbc news, miami. we still have much more for you at the top of the hour. coming up, world leaders gathering in paris for a u.n. summit on climate change. it all starts today amid heavy security. chris jansing is there in paris for us. plus, we're learning more about the man accused of opening fire inside a colorado planned planned parenthood. he is due in court today and we'll have a live report for you. . chris christie gets a key endorsement in the early voting

6:58 am
good morning. i'm jose diaz-balart. president obama is in paris today to attend a global summit. he is already meeting with the leaders of china and india, as well as russian president vladimir putin. the president deskrikd the summit as critical in two ways, first as an act of defiance coming less than three weeks after the terrorist attacks that stunned paris. and second, as recognition that time, he says, is running out to address climate change as a global threat. this morning the president said his firsthand look at the changes happening in alaska earlier this year brought that message home. >> it was a preview of one possible future, a glimpse of our children's fate in the climate keeps changing faster than our efforts to address it.
6:59 am
submerged countries, abandoned cities, fields that no longer grow. political disruptions that trigger new conflict and even more floods of desperate peoples seeking the sanctuary of nations not their own. >> nbc's senior white house wouldn't chris jansing is live in paris this morning. chris, good seeing you. >> reporter: you, too. >> thanks. you were with the president on his alaska trip. do you think that that added urgency to him to his efforts? >> reporter: oh, seeing that visualizing that i think is no doubt, jose, motivating factor for him to come here with very ambitious agenda which is to no less than rally the world around doing something to stop the effects of climate change. he and among 150 other leaders are here trying to make commitments. and the real question is -- look, almost every country in the world seems to be getting on board to do something about it. the question is how much are they willing to change and for

what period of time. that's really what a lot of these conversations are about. they've all been meeting together, as you mentioned. he is meeting with the other two big emitters in the world, the leaders of china and india. two men with which whom he has very different relationships but both of whom he's been spending a lot of time talking to about these issues. then there is a very interesting sidelines meeting he had with russian president vladimir putin. white house officials say that that was about a couple of other things. of course, last week the downing of the russian jetliner by turkey, the president urging calm, as well as expressing sympathies for the loss of life on that russian jet. in addition, reiterating to him in the war on terror that if they're going to settle the civil war that's going on in syria, assad has to go. huge point of contention between russia and the united states and a bit of a diversion from what the real focus here is, which is to get these commitments from
7:01 am
all these different countries to reduce the amount of carbon emissions that they have and one of the special guests that we'll be seeing a little later today -- bill gates. he's going to be part of an announcement of a public/private partnership looking for ways to innovate toward clean energy. jose? >> chris, if the situation was tense and security was at an all-time high before this in paris, i mean i can only imagine what it is now. >> reporter: well, first of all, you have literally tens of thousands of police spread out all across france. when you have not just 150 world leaders but you have thousands of diplomats, staff members who are going to be here over the course of two weeks and yesterday we really saw tensions reach a boiling point when some mostly peaceful protesters, there was a small group of them wearing black, started to throw shoes and rocks and bottles at police who then started using teargas and pepper spray. this went on for many hours.
7:02 am
340-plus people were taken into custody. some of them facing six months in jail and 7,500 euro fine. things seem to be much calmer today. obviously police hoping to send a message that there is a state of emergency still in place in the wake of those terror attacks more than two weeks ago and that bans public gathering, although there were a number of people i spoke with yesterday who felt that the police went just a little too far, jose. >> chris jansing in paris, thank you very much. back here at home, a colorado man suspected of killing three people at a planned parenthood clinic will face a judge for the first time this afternoon. this morning new details are emerging about the 57-year-old robert dear, man described as reclusive and anti-social by some people who knew him. we're also learning new details about 1 of the 3 victims killed in the attack. his brother says the iraq war veteran back inside the clinic to help others even after being shot. let's get the very latest now
7:03 am
from colorado springs. nbc's blake mccoy. >> reporter: good morning to you, jose. robert dear, that 57-year-old accused gunman, is being held here on no bonds. he will make his first court appearance here later this afternoon via closed-circuit television. he's of course accused of killing three people, injuring nine others in that shoot-out at the planned parenthood on friday. here's what we've learned about the accused shooter. we traveled up to his home about an hour from here. he lived in an rv on a piece of property, largely stuck to himself, according to neighbors, was a bit of a recluse and had just who have had here about a year ago from north carolina. prior to living in colorado, and north carolina, he lived in a trailer and was largely off the grid with no power. neighbors say the few run-ins they with him there were some odd interactions with politics and anti-president obama rhetoric but nothing that would have indicated that he was capable of something like this. this morning we are also hearing from the family of one of the
7:04 am
people killed in the attack. 29-year-old iraq war veteran. his family says he was at that clinic with his girlfriend who was pregnant and stepped outshied to get cell phone service to make a phone call when he encountered the gunman. this is what his brother says happened next when he went back inside after being fatally shot to warn others to take cover. >> i believe that his military instinct, leave no soldier behind, leave no civilian behind, leave no one behind so he went back inside trying to help out others. i mean i don't know where he was at as far as how many more breaths he had, but he knew and before his time ran out, i guess that was his main priority was to help and save other lives. >> reporter: law enforcement has not named a motive just yet but we do know from law enforcement sources that that accused
7:05 am
shooter, robert dear, did mutter the words "no more baby parts" upon his arrest. planned parenthood does believe they were targeted because of their support for a woman's right to choose. we hope to learn more about that motive at this court appearance perhaps, and again in the coming days as more details emerge. >> blake mccoy, thank you very much. let me bring in msnbc law enforcement analyst jim cavanaugh, special officer for the atf. good morning. when one of these crimes happen we always look for possible warning signs. neighbors describe dear as reclusive, eccentric, antisocial. but is that enough to raise any red flags? >> well, there's a lot of people like that, live in isolated areas up in the mountains of north carolina. we chased eric rudolph up there. he lived in the mountains of north carolina and reached out to atlanta and birmingham to murder people at the olympics and at an abortion clinic in birmingham. he latched on to the issue. he wasn't active in that movement, rudolph wasn't, but he latched on to that issue because
7:06 am
it was in the news and it was a current thing. he tried to get some righteousness from it. i think you might see some of that from this guy, dear, too. he's not involved directly in a movement but he latches on to it. he latches on to that kind of a movement indicative by his targeting and the comments he's made to law enforcement. >> apparently he did say no more body -- or baby parts. but when you see someone like that, there is a difference between someone who laches on to issues versus someone who has always believed in that and really just goes over the top? the results, unfortunately, are the same. but how is that different? >> well, there's always been a very militant strain in the antiabortion movement that's a very small part of it but it has committed a lot of violence. bombings, arsons, murders of doctors. so that's been there. it kind of goes up and down as the talk in the country is affected about the abortion
7:07 am
issue. it is a legitimate issue. people want to change the law. people don't want to change the law. that needs to be fought within our democracy and the congress and courts and really. but there's always people who want violence and want to shoot doctors and bomb clinics and dear, as even an outsider of that movement, jose, he kind of latches on to it. that gives him this righteousness of a cause. then he -- we're saying is this really the motive. think about his actions and not just his words. he lives 55 miles from the clinic. he goes just to the clinic, a kalashnikov rifle. he goes in there with a real purpose. that's a real pups of action to go in there. but for the soldier that you just profiled, who would get a couple of medals for what he did if he was still in the army, and the assistant who locked the door, and the patrol officers who got out there and gave their lives and got shot up, we could
7:08 am
have had 40 people killed in this event. so the soldier, alerted everybody inside there, lock the door. patrol responded engaged them, got killed and wounded. they locked it down. then of course s.w.a.t. came in, colorado springs, great job and they isolated him, located him and got him to surrender. >> jim cavanaugh, thank you very much. now to chicago where all classes and activities are canceled at the university of chicago main campus after an online threat of gun violence. the school says it was informed by online counterterrorism officials. it included references tots campus quad, monday morning and 10:00 p.m. the university says it will have an increased police presence both on and around campus. normally university operations are scheduled to resume tomorrow. now to the race for the white house. this morning republican front-runner donald trump again repeating claims that he saw muslims celebrating in new jersey on 9/11. nbc news and other outlets have been unable to corroborate
7:09 am
trump's claim but that doesn't seem to be stopping him. >> i have received hundreds of calls and tweets from people. >> why can't anybody find the video, donald? >> joe. joe. they'll find something. they're going to find something. >> nbc's katy tur is outside trump tower in new york. katy, where does this conversation go from here? >> reporter: it doesn't seem to matter what the facts are really on this point, jose. frankly, donald trump doesn't back away from any of his statements regardless of how rude in fact they are. we've been looking for that video. he says he saw video of people celebrating in jersey city which is right across the river from where the world trade center stood. he saw video of thousands of people cheering, yet that video does not seem to exist anywhere and everyone's gone through their arrivechivesarchives. it doesn't not matter to donald trump because he's doubling down, tripling down, if he said it, it is basically fact in his
7:10 am
world despite what everyone else might say. he's using the people who have tweeted and the people who have called according to him as evidence that he is right. >> let's talk about this big press conference that was supposed to happen today. >> reporter: yeah. he was supposed to have a news conference this afternoon announcing the endorsement of 100 black pastors. this news conference was abruptly cancel yesterday afternoon when it came out that a number of those black pastors who were going to be in attendance had not agreed beforehand to endorse him. there was a write-up in "ebony" magazine, a letter from another of other black pastors saying that we don't agree with you even meeting with donald trump, they're worried about what message it will send to the black community. trump has been accused of stoking racism, of being a racist himself throughout this entire campaign, especially the last few weeks when a black protester for black lives matter was kicked and punched at a trump rally and that trump seemed to defend the people who did that saying that the black pro tester was out of line and acting obnoxious.
7:11 am
there was also a tweet that he came out with that showed bogus crime stats that seemed to stoke the fear, race-baiting, even saying that most white people who are murdered are murdered by black people and those crime stats were not true. so this black pastor meeting in this endorsement was going to come at a really good time for trump, it would show he was not in fact a racist, look who's supporting his campaign. by not coming out with this endorsement it is going to hurt his campaign. they're trying to spin it and there are we're told be an aen doorsment from some of those pastors but we're going to wait outside and see who we can speak to as to what exactly went down in that meeting that will happen in just a few hours. for more on the republican side of the 2016 race i'm joined by msnbc host and political correspondent steve kornacki. >> good morning, jose. >> big endorsement over the weekend, right? >> that's right and sort of a surprising one. the name of chris christie had been forgotten a lot this year in this republican presidential race but he's gone up to new
7:12 am
hampshire. his strategy is to just basically camp out in that state and try to move up until polls. over the weekend, the biggest newspaper in the state, the union leader, a very conservative newspaper, it's very aggressive with its endorsements and politics, it endorsed chris christie for president in the new hampshire primary. that's a big boom for chris christie. there's certainly a mixed record in terms of that paper actually going on to back the winner but that's a big boost in terms of chris christie's credibility in new hampshire. it raises the question, too, if chris christie can start getting traction in new hampshire, can become a contender there, then certainly he could become a contender nationally. that brings back the cloud that's been hanging over him since the very beginning of his campaign. bridgegate. you remember that? well, it's been a long time. there hasn't been a lot of new developments on that, but it is still out there and it's worth looking at right now as christie gets this boost up there in new hampshire. here's one key thing to keep in mind about bridgegate. the new hampshire primary right now is scheduled for february
7:13 am
9th. a bunch of primaries are scheduled for march. so between february and march, a lot of the delegates are going to be picked. a lot of the contests are going to be held. but the trials, the trials for bridgegate -- remember, two top christie aides are currently under federal indictment. a third is cooperating with the government to testify against them. those trials currently legislated to start in april. and there are things that could come out between now and the start of those trials that could be problematic for chris christie, most notably this. the federal prosecutors say they have a list of unindicted co-conspirato co-conspirators. they have not named who these people are. defense attorneys are pushing for these names to come out. they could plausibly come out. if they do, there is a question of how close you get to chris christie. the other issue is this -- a second investigation that's active that grew out of briof bridgegate. it involves david samson, chris
7:14 am
christie's hand-picked chairman of the port authority. this involves united airlines and a flight david samson supposedly pressured united airlines into creating just for him. the ceo of united airlines has already resigned because of this, the transportation commissioner, christie's transportation commissioner has resigned as this controversy has swirled. if that grows with be if that leads to some sort of action, maybe an indictment against david samson, that would also complicate things for chris christie. so there are a lot of issues still out there with bridgegate. i know we haven't heard a lot about it lately, but if chris christie does get traction, does start to move up there, i think a lot of people will start to look at this and say, hey, how active is this thing still? also just very quickly, one more thing we can point to. this is a good news/bad news thing for chris christie. we say he's moving up in new hampshire. the downside of that is he's now drawing attention from donald trump. look at this. just a few minutes ago donald trump really for the first time in his campaign going after chris christie with this tweet, how is chris christie running the state of new jersey which is
7:15 am
deeply troubled when he's spending all of his time in new jersey. that's what we see from donald trump, when somebody starts to creep up on him in the polls he goes after that. that's what he's doing to chris christie right now. steve kornacki, thank you very much. chris christie will appear on a special edition of "morning joe" from new hampshire tomorrow morning with joe and mika. lots ahead on this busy monday, starting with tensions running high in chicago where a judge will soon decide on granting bail for the officer charged in the shooting death of laquan mcdonald. he was 17 years old. he lost his life. it's how i try to live... how i stay active. so i need nutrition... that won't weigh me down. for the nutrition you want without the calories you don't... introducing boost 100 calories. each delicious snack size drink gives you... 25 vitamins and minerals and 10 grams of protein. so it's big in nutrition and small in calories.

in less than three hours a judge in chicago is expects to decide whether to grant bail for the officer charged in the shooting death of 17-year-old
7:19 am
laquan mcdonald. jason van dyke is charged with first degree murder after shooting the teen 16 times in october of 2014. just last week graphic dash cam video of the shooting was released. that video is expected to factor into the judge's decision on bail. the video also prompted protests. let's go live to chicago and msnbc's adam reiss. adam, what are we expecting at today's hearing? >> reporter: jose, good morning. the judge wants to see that dash cam video himself before making any decision on bail. officer van dyke remains in jail pending that decision right behind me. the prosecutor in this case, anita alvarez, wants him held over for trial, she says. this is a clear-cut face of first degree murder. just look at the video, she says. six seconds after he gets out of his patrol car he opens fire on laquan mcdonald and continues to do so even after mcdonald hits the ground. 16 shots. he moves to reload his weapon and his partner says, hold your
7:20 am
fire. seven other officers on the scene, not one of them fires a single shot. now the defense says this was clear-cut case of self-defense. he feared for his life even though it appears in the video that laquan mcdonald is walking away from him as he opens fire. jose? >> thank you very much. coming up, the pope's last leg of his trip to africa venturing into a volatile region in the central african republic. those details ahead. but first, take a look at this. the royal family has released these new photos of princess charlotte who is now 6 months old. these photos taken in early november by her mom, dutchess kate, at the family's home. taken a hit lately. mm hmm. just wanted to touch base. how did edward jones come to manage over $800 billion dollars in assets? huh. okay. here's our latest market outlook.

7:30 am
protect the earth and meet its global responsibilities. at the top of the hour, republican presidential candidate ted cruz will hold a town hall in iowa. his support in the hawkeye state is soaring. . the latest quinnipiac poll puts his neck and neck with donald trump for the lead but coming up fast in his rear-view mirror is senator marco rubio. a new report in politico says more gop senators will soon endorse rubio. i'm joined now by nbc senior political editor mark murray. >> good morning, jose. >> so this report we mentioned in politico, gop senators are coming in line to publicly back rubio. what makes them, well, more comfortable with him than with cruz? >> this all goes back to the establishment versus conservative brackets and the republican race. it was always kind of thought that you'd end up having in some way jeb bush, marco rubio, scott walker when he was in the contest kind of representing that establishment wing and then on the conservative side, ted cruz, but also the likes of ben
7:31 am
carson and donald trump and what you are starting to see is ted cruz is starting to inch up in the polls that some republicans have often thought ted cruz doesn't often play well with republican leaders as well as the republican establishment might start coalescing around the most electable public establishment person in this case right now with two months to go until iowa, marco rubio. but it still is important to note we're talking about marco rubio versus ted cruz when a lot of guys number one and two in the polls, ben carson and donald trump who often make up 40% to 50% of the republican electorate right now. >> they are still very far ahead. >> yeah, they are. so i do think that it is very possible that we end up getting to a marco rubio, ted cruz race, although a lot of twists and turns are left over the next two months before we head into iowa. but first we have to see what ends up happening to donald trump and to a lesser extent ben carson before getting to that rubio versus ted cruz match-up.
7:32 am
>> on a rubio and cruz match-up, each one is looking for support -- who are they each trying to get support from? >> ted cruz's entire support is among really, really conservative republicans, evangelical voters in iowa. "the new york times" just mentioned -- that's one of the reasons he's such a player in iowa, because how conservative the electorate is, as well as that big evangelical base you have in the hawkeye state. but that necessarily doesn't translate to other states across the country. of course this whole establishment versus republican fight is kind of predicated on essentially the republican party coalesces around the most electable establishment, that the establishment usually ends up winning but in this era the question is does the establishment really have the muscle and the ability to knock ow the conservative players here. >> and mark, talk about ground game. someone we don't talk about much anymore because he's really fallen so far down the polls is
7:33 am
bush. does his $100 million-plus war chest matter? does the organization that he has put forth in places like new hampshire matter? >> organization matters. money matters. but one thing worth noting, jose, is that a lot of that $100 million that you and i are talking about is stored in the bush super pac and not necessarily with the campaign. so that's going to be used for tv ads. but as far as actually having the payroll paying for the headquarters, what bush needs to be able to do is raise those campaign dollars to be able to pay for everyone to keep their candidacy afloat, and right now that is going to be their top strategy. yes, they have that. money for advertising but can they get those campaign dollars and that's the challenge for jeb bush and his campaign. >> mark murray, thanks. right now jury selection for the first of six trials in the death of freddie gray is under way in baltimore. officer william porter who was
7:34 am
charged with manslaughter and misconduct has pleaded not guilty. gray was a 25-year-old black man who died of apparent spinal injuries a week after being arrested by baltimore police. his death sparked protests against police brutality in the city. msnbc legal correspondent ari melber joins me this morning. is it going to be tough to find jurors who really haven't heard much about this case there? >> i think it will be. i think that is common sense given the fact that this was a national and even international story. there are going to be plenty of people inside baltimore who are going to bring some aware es of it. of course what you do when you talk to juries, they have a process called voir dire where you interview them, is not to say have you ever heard about anything in the world, nobody comes in with a fully blank slate, but rather can you be fair and impartial and limit yourself to what you hear in the courtroom, not what you may have heard before and certainly not
7:35 am
what comes from outside the courtroom during a trial. >> porter is expected to testify. what's that tell you? >> well, first of all, i'll say what i always say. we don't know what it tells us but in terms ef analyzing that, i think it suggests that the defense feels that they have potentially strong argument for him to explain his individual actions and state of mind throughout this incident. that is to say, you often see a defense where you don't necessarily put your defendant on the stand because you leave it to the government, to the prosecutors, to carry their burden which is a high one and prove their case. the exceptions to that are if either you are in such a weak position that it is kind of a hail mary pass, or you think you are in such a strong position you say, look, i'm putting my guy or gal up and letting him or her speak in their own words and make their case. i want to be clear, the trial hasn't started. we just don't know exactly what and why they're doing that. but it could come from one of those trial strategies. i can tell you statistically it is not the norm for a defendant,
7:36 am
but this is in the eyes of many people a potentially sympathetic defendant because he's an officer in the line of duty. if he made mistakes, he may be able to try to explain them and the reasons potentially good or legitimate reasons he had for making them. again that all goes to why you might want to put this kind of person on the stand. >> ari, how much of a precedent can this case be for the remaining five cases? >> potentially huge precedent. i think that's the most something thing about this process starting today. the trial technically starts today in terms of jury selection. whatever comes out of this case will set a big template for all these remaining cases. the officers have every right to be tried individually and any lawyer would tell you thaels the right call strategically because you don't want your situation bound up with the others. having said that, if -- if -- this were to be, for example, a guilty verdict here on the first trial, that could affect legally the other trials because this officer could end up testifying or some of that material could
7:37 am
be introduced. so there is a lot riding on the first one. according to reports which we haven't independently confirmed because again, it is early. but according to some reports from baltimore press, there are statements that this particular officer made that the prosecutors think could make a better case against him and thus they started with him. that is to say, this isn't random. prosecution can choose where to begin. they begin where they think they have the strongest case against an officer. >> ari melber, thank you very much. russian president vladimir putin and turkish president erdogan are both at the paris summit but there are no plans for the two to take the opportunity to talk and ease tensions following the shootdown of a russian fighter jet. this morning the turkish military handed over the body of the pilot who was killed when the plane went down. putin imposes new sanction is against turkey over the weekend and wants an apology for the incident but turkey said again today he won't be getting one. joining me, former u.s. ambassador to russia, mike

mcfaul. are you surprised these two leaders have allowed this to escalate to the point it has? >> no, i'm not surprised at all. they're both very strong minded leaders. both think they're in the right. putin has now spouresponded witw sanctions in terms of travel and in terms of some turkish goods. i don't think it will go farther than this but i don't see them trying hard to try to de-escalate. >> talk about what real impact and effects this travel ban and the importation of some turkish goods is going to have on turkey. >> well, it's going to have an effect on turkey but it is also going to have an effect on russians. these are goods that are bought by russians, and in particular the discouraging russians to travel to vacation in turkey. that will hurt the turkish economy, but it is going to hurt those russian consumers as well.
7:39 am
turkey and egypt are the two major destination points for vacations for russians, especially during the holidays. both of those places are now off-limits. >> turkey's prime minister said today the incidents like this one will be difficult to -- if there continues to be two different coalitions fighting in syria. if you're the united states how do you go forward on this? >> well, it sounds like president obama did meet with president putin and the read-out is that just exactly the same thing. which is, he wants russia, president putin, to attack isis and not the other so-called moderate opposition forces that turkey and the united states and the rest of the coalition supports. and, two, the white house reiterated again that president obama said assad must go. putin is against that. he's against assad going and so far, he hasn't changed the kinds of groups that he's targeting and that impasse is real and has not been resolved yet. >> as a matter of fact the
7:40 am
bombing that was going on there by the turkish, there's no isis there. >> the russian news, you should know, reports it differently. the russian national television says they are targeting isis targets and they're targeting terrorists. but of course the russian definition of a terrorist is different from our coalition and i think they're fudging the difference there. it appears to me that they really have not changed their basic military strategy yet in syria. there was some hope that they might do that after their plane was downed in egypt but so far the evidence doesn't suggest that they've done that. >> and their support for the syrian regime continues to be as strong as ever, seems like. >> that's right. president putin believes that the only way to have peace and stability in syria is to support assad and his regime. i heard him say that many times when i was ambassador. we've been debating about this. you need to remember, for years -- not just the last
7:41 am
couple of weeks. the obama administration has countered with a different kind of argument to say we don't want regime change. that is, we don't want the government to fall apart. we don't want the military to dissolve. rather, we just want a coalition government that could have then legitimacy to go and fight isis all together. and to have that kind of legitimacy, their argument is eventually assad must go. putin disagrees. >> assad and the regime are one and the same, ambassador, thank you very much for being with me. >> thanks for having me. i want to take you no you to mexico where drug gangs are going after an unlikely target -- catholic priests. according to the los angeles times, 11 priests have been violently killed in the past three years and two more are still missing. just last week the body of a priest was found showing signs of torture. deborah bornello is the journalist who wrote the article for the "l.a. times." she also founded mexicoreporter.com. she joins me from mexico.
7:42 am
deborah, thank you for being with me. >> you're welcome. >> so now it is priests being targeted in this drug war that has killed tens of thousands of people? >> i'm afraid so. the violence against priests in mexico has been on the rise for the last couple of years. it has gotten worse since the current president took power in 2012. the main catalyst for this is that as the drug war rolls on, mexico's human rights situation just seems to be going from bad to worse and catholic priests who work in especially provincial parishes are often part of the civilian struggle to -- for their human rights. they sort of place themselves on the front line between drug gangs and corrupt government officials and other interests who are involved in the murder,
7:43 am
abduction and disappearance of so many people here in mexico. >> as you mention in your article, there are priests, one of whom i know very well, who have really taken the front line on defense of immigrants, of the people from central america who come up through mexico. tortured. even though this priest had threats against his life forever, it seemed as though priests were not kind of touched by these drug cartels but that's changing. >> yeah. i mean it definitely looks like the gloves are off in that sense. i think he is probably the most high-profile priest who advocates for rights.
7:44 am
all the families back home in central america are extorted, the migrants killed if they don't pay the hostage that's being demanded. and there does seem to be a dropping respect for the sort of sacred position of priests in society which the priests i spoke to attributed to sort of a lack of faith, people moving away from the church. but analysts attribute it more to the fact that priests are part of the general population, and as the general population comes under fire, so do priests because they are part of these communities. >> thank you very much for being with me. i so appreciate you and i appreciate the article you wrote. very, very important. up next, nba legend kobe bryant announces he will soon be stepping off the court. those details after the break. we sent two women into a real guys night out

the sports world. l.a. lakers forward kobe bryant says this season will be his last one in the nba. bryant announced his upcoming retirement from basketball over the weekend. the 37-year-old drafted out of high school in 1996 helped the lakest win five nba championships. he was also named the league's mvp in 2008. let's get more from the writer of usa today's sports site "for the win." chris chase, good morning. so why did bryant decide to retire now? >> this was a decision two years in the making. in 2013 he ruptured his achilles tendon the end of the season. right then and there he could have retired. i think a lot of people said he should have retired. he was free to do what he wanted, of course, but he never got that same explosiveness back. when you are a player who comes out of high school at age 17 and are playing into your 30s, you play olympics and you play deep into the playoffs, you put a lot of wear on that body and when you have the achilles injury you lose a step.
7:49 am
kobe had already lost that step. so the lakers inexplicably signed him to a $48 million deal after that and it ended up being a bad move but it was one of loyalty and the lakers are a team that likes to show loyalty. >> talk to me about bryant's impact on the nba. 20 years with the league. right? >> it's amazing. he's the first player in history to play 20 years with the same team. his career's going to be seen in the eye of the beholder. he's the third leading scorer of all time which means he's ahead of michael jordan but he's one behind jordan in titles. he won some championships without shaquille o'neal which was very important to him. but on none of the five championship teams was he considered by the metrics, which win shares, to be the most valuable player on that team. amazingly, he's only won one mvp for the league for the entire time whereas steve nash has two, lebron has a handful, tim duncan has some. so it is sort of strange to say
7:50 am
that co-about i is going to retire with only one mvp. you would think that just -- ask anyone, they'd probably say he has three or four because he's been so great. >> chris, lebron i think played on a team i know down here in florida for a while? >> yeah. for a little bit. >> i think he did something for us here. coming up, why you can't get on the website of one of the nation's leading retailers right now on this cyber monday. why? i'll let you know. ok, we're here. here's dad. mom. the twins. aunt alice... you didn't tell me aunt alice was coming. of course. don't forget grandpa. can the test drive be over now? maybe just head back to the dealership? don't you want to meet my family? yep, totally. it's practically yours, but we still need your signature. hurry in for great deals all black friday weekend on select new volkswagen models during the sign- then-drive event.

one of them is the brand new metro. we had a modest forecast: 110,000 passengers per day in the first line. we are already over 200,000. our collaboration with citi has been very important from the very beginning. citi was our biggest supporter and our only private bank. we are not only being efficient in the way we are moving people now, we are also more amicable to the environment. people have more time for the family and it's been one of the most rewarding experiences to hear people saying: "the metro has really changed my life." his day of coaching begins with knee pain, when... this is brad. hey brad, wanna trade the all day relief of two aleve for six tylenol? what's the catch? there's no catch. you want me to give up my two aleve for six tylenol? no. for my knee pain, nothing beats my aleve.
