i love the show and it was so fun to be on the set. >> we'll get to that in a bit. the top story now. mounting turmoil for donald trump this morning. a key member of his inner circle is out. it's not clear whether he quit or was fired. kelly o'donnell has more for us. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. after a sold out three-day miniconference known as the red state gathering. some of the conservatives here told us they were disappointed to not hear from donald trump directly. as you might expect, trump has plenty more to say. the party went on without donald trump. this tailgate bash, part of the conservative convention, would have been trump's place to rail against political correctness. instead top presidential candidates fired away at him. >> mr. trump ought to apologize. >> jeb brush addressed the
controversy directly on the attack on megyn kelly after she challenged trump's comments about women. >> come on. give me a break. i mean, are we -- do we want to win? do we want to insult 53% of all voters? >> trump's invitation had been revoked, but questions about him persisted. other candidates, like mike huckabee, were tired of talking trump. >> i'm running for president. i'm not running for the social media kritdic for somebody else running for president. >> trump's turmoil turned inward saturday. a new fight turned into public view. long time advisor robert stone is out. he turned in his resignation letter. more controversy the campaign claimed they firer mr. stone.
saying roger wanted to use it as his benefit. >> when he becomes the president, of course his tone will change. right now if you go after him, he's sending in the missiles. >> reporter: and that has been the donald trump method when he's attacked he attacks back. so some of the candidates have been reluctant to go after him. criticizing his words, perhaps, but not wanting to discourage him from participating in the race. many of the conservatives we've talked to say the people should decide his fate over time and not organizations like the party or some of the official groups. craig? >> kelly o'donnell for us this morning in atlanta. thank you. donald trump will be among chuck todd's guests later this morning on "meet the press." chuck, good morning. >> good morning, erica. >> these are far from the most inflammatory things donald trump has ever said. yet, the reaction seems to be
different. why is the tide turning at this point? the tone or the target? >> i think it's a little bit of everything. i think it's the accumulation, number one. if you look, he's been growing the amount of people he's insulted over the years starting during the birther movement moving to disparaging hispanics with the comments about mexicans and veterans with john mccain women with megyn kelly. i think it adds to the angst of conservatives that megyn kelly is the star on the fox news. put it together it has a last straw feel to it. the republican party, having many leaders, knows that trump is consuming them right now. at a time when they have got to figure out how to unite. they're demographically challenged going up against democrats in '16. >> kelly talked about the fact in the past any targets have been reluctant to respond in any way to donald trump because he attacks back. that seems to be waning a little
bit, too. jeb bush was clear when he said the real issue here is that he could push aside voters specifically women voters. how much of that is a part of the equation at this point? >> i think that's the issue now. it's sort of all the candidates, many of them, i don't want to say all because not all are taking direct shots but behind the scenes they say this. at first, it was trump is trump. they think the american people swing voters would separate trump from the republican party. now there's a concern that trump's problems will now bleed into the republican party here and start to stain them even for the long-term. i think that's what jeb bush is talking about. i think many of these candidates are saying to themselves, if donald trump's words are used against them if they're the nominee think jeb bush and scott walker. what they said in this moment will matter. >> there's been a lot made about the phone call that happened between former president clinton and donald trump.
in recent days both camps denied the phone call the presidential race was discussed the all. it hasn't silenced the speculation. the timing here is kind of interesting. what do you make of the renewed buzz about the call? >> there's plenty of conservatives who believe that donald trump isn't a real conservative. he doesn't really hold true conservative positions, at least on things like health care and even on taxes who think that he's nothing more than some sort of democratic plan. the clinton phone call feeds into that narrative, whatever that phone call was about, and i think that it's sort of just nervousness. here he is he sort of did a belly flop into the republican pool and suddenly dominating the race. so conservatives who would wish somebody else would do it are wondering how did it happen? why is he doing this? they're going to conspiracy. >> all right, chuck. thank you. we'll see you again in a little bit when donald trump joins you
on "meet the press." police in texas asked the fbi to join the investigation into friday's deadly shooting of a 19-year-old college football player. a case that sparked a fire storm of outrage online as a critical new piece of evidence emerges. mark potter has that story. >> reporter: in a security camera video from outside a car dealership in arlington, texas shooting victim christian taylor can seen jumping on a vehicle and breaking out the windshield, which police say he did before his fatal encounter with officers. later on the tape, he can be seen driving his vehicle through a locked gate there and then in the distance driving through a glass door on to the showroom floor. >> reporter: shortly afterward, police can be seen arriving a the dealership with taylor ro

could have done to, you know, take him down or whatever. >> reporter: the police say they await autopsy and toxicologist reports and will be public with their findings. for "today," mark potter, nbc news. meantime in missouri today marks one day -- one year to the day since the death of michael brown. the unarmed black teen was shot dead by a white police officer in the city of ferguson. brown's killing sparked months of protest and violence. overnight at least 200 protesters took to the streets outside police headquarters. nbc ron allen has been covering the story for us from the beginning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. during the past year ferguson has become more than the death of michael brown at the hands of darren wilson. many say it raised national awareness about deadly police encounters in minority neighborhoods in places like cleveland, baltimore, and new york. a year later much has changed. for others progress has been slow and there are still cries
for justice. >> reporter: on this painful anniversary, michael brown's family still mourns. >> he never came back. i don't know how you explain it. >> reporter: brown's father, leading marches through the streets. streets still scarred by reminders of battlefield ferguson became >> is this street bad? >> it's not bad we're working on it. >> reporter: westerly bell is one of the three african-americans on the city council. the new police chief, city manager, and top judge, also, are black. in a city where the justice department report said the police and courts were biassed againstminorities. ferguson's leaders reject the allegations. all officers wear body cameras. >> do you think kids feel different? >> trust has to be earned. >> reporter: a citizens group set up by the governor to look into the underlying causes of the anger and rage has some 150
calls to action for raising the minimum wage to improving local schools. >> are you satisfied with where ferguson is now? >> it's a long process that has been decades in the coming. >> reporter: despite of fears of flight, most of the 200 businesses damaged by the unrest have stayed. queen green showed us her damaged salon. >> everything is water damaged and smoke damaged. >> you've been busy the last year or so. >> reporter: mary, with a newborn, finally hoping to reopen a new location by labor day. >> i mean, like i said i'm hopeful. >> reporter: overnight there was a shooting incident in ferguson police say one man was injured, one man hospitalized. the rear window of a police car shattered by the cross fire. criminal activity, apparently unrelated to the ferguson anniversary. more events are planned today marking the anniversary. unlike a year ago, so far things have been peaceful. >> ron allen this morning, thank
