7:00 am
of the day today and nice warmup this afternoon. >> i'm going to call harry hairston because you didn't guys participate with the prom pictures. i'm launching an investigation. good morning, face to face. donald trump heads to capitol hill this morning for his highly anticipated meeting with house speaker paul ryan. can they reconcile their differences? will trump walk out with an endorsement? this morning former vice president dan quayle weighs in in an exclusive live interview. brutal arrest. police officers repeatedly hit and kick a suspect after he led them on a high-speed chase in two states. did their actions cross the line? this morning the investigation is underway. controversial auction. george zimmerman allegedly selling the gun he used to kill trayvon martin. the bidding open at $5,000.
7:01 am
what zimmerman had to say that outraged critics. in the zone. pitcher matt sherzer made a record 20 strikeouts in a single game. >> another one! swing and a miss! an incredible feat nearly three years in the making today, may 12, 2016. >> announcer: this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today," thursday morning. >> you don't have to be a baseball fan to appreciate what sherzer did last night. he gets two outs by strikeouts. that's pretty impressive. >> he scattered it over nine innings. did i get that right?
7:02 am
>> i'm glad you dove into the box score there. >> i've been working on my baseball lingo all morning. we'll start with politics. all eyes on that. building the rnc headquarters on capitol hill right there. this morning the meeting between house speaker paul ryan and donald trump will take place there. then later trump will meet with other political leaders, some of whom have been reluctant to embrace him. we'll talk with former vice president dan quayle. he's here exclusively. but let us begin with correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. the next few hours will be pivotal to the republican party. donald trump likes to tout the fact that he's now won nearly 11 million votes nationwide, but he's yet to secure the support of one man who happens to be the most powerful republican leader in the land. after donald trump's takeover on the republican party this morning, house speaker paul ryan, donald trump headed to
7:03 am
today's meeting when asked who is the leader of the gop. >> i would say paul ryan. i would say paul for the time being and maybe for a long time. >> ryan and previs notably from wisconsin, the last one to reject trump at the voting booth. >> we need a leader in our party. after prit marthe primary, that to take some effort. >> reporter: ryan involved with trump supporters. the longer ryan waits to endorse him, the more divided the party gets. trump also meets with senate republican leaders, among them ted cruz. >> there are no plans for us to meet. i have not heard from donald trump. >> reporter: nor, apparently, has john mccain after calling for trump to take back this controversial comment. >> he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured. >> reporter: trump acknowledging that mccain is a hero but defending his words.
7:04 am
>> there are many people who like what i said. after i said that, my poll numbers went up seven points. >> reporter: meanwhile 2012 nominee mitt romney is blasting trump for refusing to release his tax returns until an irs audit is over, which may not be until after the election. romney calling it disqualifying, suggesting there is a bombshell in them. trump could become the first major party nominee in 40 years not to make his returns public. >> the tax return, you learn very, very little. >> reporter: but he demanded the same transparency of romney four years ago. >> mitt has to get those tax returns out. >> reporter: trump's democratic rival hillary clinton looking to capitalize. >> my husband and i have released 33 years of tax returns. so you have to ask yourself, why doesn't he want to release them? yeah, well, we're going to find out. >> reporter: as bernie sanders wednesday pushed back as nbc news' andrea mitchell asked for pushback from both his and trump's campaign.
7:05 am
>> in every state that we have won, in 19 states, we have had to take on the entire democratic establishment. please do not moan to me about hillary clinton's problems. >> reporter: back out live now at the rnc headquarters, the outcome of this meeting could echo well beyond this campaign season. in the near term, questions will be raised whether paul ryan stays as chair of this summ convention, but later down the road, will ryan be picking up the pieces if donald trump loses this fall. with us now exclusively, former vice president dan quayle. mr. vice president, it's great to see you. we haven't seen you in a while. >> it's been a while. >> it has. bring us up to date here. when all of this started a year or so ago, the 17 or so gop candidates standing on that stage, could you have imagined with governors and senators in that group that it would end up with donald trump, inexperienced, businessman, real
7:06 am
estate mogul capturing the republican nomination? >> no. and i don't think very many people did except himself, his family. there are a few people who said watch donald trump, but i don't think anybody expected him to win the nomination. and quite frankly, i'm not quite sure that he really thought he could win. but he's a winner. he knocked off 16 republican candidates. he is going to be the nominee, the presumptive nominee, and now the party is going to have to unify around someone that they did not expect to be their nominee. >> obviously this candidacy of donald trump has exposed some fault lines in the republican party. there are some people who call themselves never trumpers, and then there are some on the trump train. which category do you fall into? >> i was the republican vice president. i've been a republican all my life. i'm going to support the nominee. and i predict that most people in my position or people that have been in the republican party for a long time will rally around the nominee. i fully expect that paul ryan
7:07 am
will eventually support donald trump publicly. i hope that happens, because we do have to be unified. if we're not unified, then we have a real lot of trouble ahead. >> let me ask you about qualifications. in all honesty, your qualifications were questioned when you became vice president. people worried whether you had the experience to be vice president or president if that would happen. do you think donald trump has the experience, the knowledge and the temperament to be president? >> we're going to find out. >> right now do you think, though? >> right now he's the nominee. there's a great majority in the republican party that clearly believes that. i believe he has the capability to be president of the united states, and he's into a new phase now. he's gotten through the nomination. that's one. and quite frankly, the nomination is a much lower bar than being the nominee. now he's got to show the american people not that he can beat other republicans, but he's got to build upon his base, he's
7:08 am
got to move forward, and he's got to articulate a vision that the american people say, yes, he is qualified. i don't know what the answer is to that for most of the people, but clearly he's got good political instincts, he has a good business background, he's a winner and he's unusual. he's obviously very different. he's not going to play by the rules. it's a different situation, but i think that he can win. >> is there anything about how he's conducted the race so far in terms of tone and temperament that gives you pause or gives you concern, or if you had him sitting across from you, you would say, you know what? maybe not do it that way. >> here's what i think he will do and needs to do. he really needs to get more involved in the policy. he made a speech on foreign policy. he's got to make another speech on foreign policy, he's got to make speeches on the economy. he's got to show that he's presidential. he's not running in a primary anymore. he's won that. now he's got to figure out how
7:09 am
to win the general election. >> he spoke yesterday and said, don't expect me to be a different person. he has a mandate from his followers to run a fiery outsiders campaign. it doesn't sound like he's going to do what you're suggesting he should do. >> he can run that fiery outsiders campaign, but he has to realize -- look, he's been around this for a long time. he actually suggested he should be the vice president in 1998 when george bush selected me. so he's followed politics. he knows full well it's a different campaign once you're the nominee. and i fully expect fiery, yes, unconventional, yes, but it's going to be different. it has to be. it's a different type of campaign. he's running in the general election. he's running probably against hillary clinton, although there's the news story. we know who our nominee is going to be before the democrats know who their nominee is going to be. different tone. >> is he as qualified as she is?
7:10 am
>> on paper you would say she's more qualified, but you know what? he's more qualified in the sense that the american people, i think, want an outsider. they want an outsider this time. she's not an outsider and he is. >> simple question, should he turn over his tax returns? >> he's not going to do that. >> but should he? every republican has to. >> he's a different candidate, it's going to be a different campai campaign, so stay tuned. just remember this. expect the unexpected. >> his vice presidential candidate should be? >> rob portman, senator of ohio. man of substance, great guy. if you ask me, rob portman. >> good to see you. thanks so much. in other news this morning, two more pieces of debris recently discovered are almost certainly from malaysia flight 370. that is according to an
7:11 am
australian official. flight 370 disappeared two years ago with 330 people on board. the latest plane fragments were found on the beach of south africa and mauritus. an investigation being launched this morning into the violent arrest of a suspect following a high-speed chase through two states. tamron joins us with more on that. good morning, tamron. >> good morning, guys. that chase started in massachusetts and ended in neighboring new hampshire. when the driver finally gave up, officers pounced. dramatic aerial footage captured it all. police officers repeatedly punching a suspect who appeared to be surrendering after a high-speed chase. the man, 50-year-old richard simone, was wanted on multiple warrants, including assault and battery. when officers in massachusetts tried to pull over his pickup truck wednesday afternoon, police say he refused to stop, igniting a high-speed chase.
7:12 am
starting in holden, massachusetts, the chase ended nearly 50 miles away in nashua, new hampshire when two of simone's tires were blown out. but it is what happened after the chase that is raising concern. simone exits the truck and appears to give himself up. as he lies face down on the pavement, officers started throwing punches. simone's sister is furious. >> it is very shocking, to say the least. disturbing to see when someone willingly gets out of the vehicle, goes to their knees, goes flat out on their stomach, it didn't seem like there was anything apparent in his hands or anything like that. it was kind of very shocking. >> reporter: in a statement the massachusetts state police said, quote, the pursuit, like all pursuits that involve massachusetts state police, will be reviewed by the department's pursuit committee. officials say they will also investigate whether the level of force used to apprehend simone was appropriate. obviously, guys, this is another
7:13 am
example of cameras, whether they're on a helicopter or cell phone, change the dynamic. this is under investigation. we'll continue to follow it, of course. >> not the last we'll hear from that. tamron, thank you. now the latest on the death of the music icon prince. a secret memorial was held for him in beverly hills last night. we're also learning more about the doctor who treated prince in his final days. stephanie gosk is following it for us this morning. stephanie, good morning. >> reporter: prince's nearest and dearest gathering as quietly as a group like that could to pay tribute to his life. meanwhile, law enforcement is telling nbc news that it was the dea that was here earlier in the week executing a search warrant. they are still trying to figure out how prince obtained prescription painkillers. wednesday night in l.a., stars like gwen stefani, spike lee and others turned out for what was called a celebration of life. the secret tribute for prince
7:14 am
was a private gathering. it comes as we're learning more details this morning about the local doctor who treated prince and came to paisley park with test results hours after the superstar's death according to a police search warrant. licensed since 1997, dr. michael shulenberg has a clean practicing record in minnesota. the place where he was employed said the doctor no longer works for him. they say he is no longer employed there. in an assisted living home where the doctor was contracted to do work said it was surprised prince was shown as schulenberg's patient. they said, we have begun the process to replace this physician on our team despite this development. it showed dr. schulenberg was already being replaced for
7:15 am
unrelated reasons, a process that began april 5, weeks before prince's death. attempts to reach dr. schulenberg was unsuccessful. his attorney isn't talking. kurt johnson said prince went to a local hospital and received fluids during his visit. prince's rock band worked for the superstar in the early '90s and helped manage paisley park. johnson was a trainer at this local gym. multiple employees say he is on leave because he was so close to prince. nbc news learned that kirk johnson is now being represent by kurt tyler in minneapolis who specializes in criminal defense. tyler declined to comment on the case. they are saying they released that search warrant with details about dr. schulenberg was a
7:16 am
mistake. it should have been sealed along with other court documents in this case. they are blaming it on human error. let's turn now to that piece of sports history we mentioned at the top of the show. washington nationals' matt scherzer striking out 20 batters last night to put his place in the record books. >> 20 strikeouts for matt scherzer! >> in the nation's capitols history has been made. he had the most strikeouts in a game. the fans and the announcers were electric. >> goosebumps. did they bring it up? >> i don't know. >> and so was scherzer. the 31-year-old ace is now on top with roger clemens, roger
7:17 am
johnson and carey wood, the only other pitchers to show strikeouts in nine innings. kerry wood tweeted saying, welcome to the club. #filthy. he led the nats to a 3-2 victory over the detroit tigers. >> game over. >> we got a win and man, that's a great, great feeling. >> reporter: a feeling that nats fans aren't likely to forget. >> again, a win at 3-2. scherzer also scattered six hits, as savannah said at the top of the show. >> and in that moment used all my baseball language. dylan dryer is in acadia national park. we're celebrating 100 years of national parks. dylan, good morning.
7:18 am
>> it's this nice in may. the sun is shining, temperatures are warm. we've had a good time here. let's take a look at temperatures across the country where we do have an area of stronger storms today. we have a report of about 700 storms yesterday. it's really just a marginal risk of severe storms. some of that heavier rain is falling in st. louis. it's stretching to arkansas. this is now turning to your run of the mill cold front. we'll see isolated stronger storms as it moves eastward. it will eventually make its way to the east coast with isolated strong storms in virginia, down to northern florida as we go into friday. into friday. that's who's worried about getting ttaken for a ride...r don't worry. the only rides you'll get taken on at carmax are the ones you take yourself. but just in case that absolutely 100 percent perfect choice... ...turns out to be...

7:31 am
deadly explosion at the texas fertilizer plant back in 2013 was intentionally set. the blast at the west fertilizer company killed 13 people, injured many and leveled homes, businesses and schools. federal investigators announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in that case. take a look at this. a california man lucky to be alive. police say he was street racing when his car flipped and burst into flames. the manager of a nearby mattress store saw the fire, ran in and pulled the unconscious man to safety. >> lucky he did. the cannes film festival underway this morning, but this year the glamour of that event is being overshadowed somewhat by controversy. woody allen's movie is using that festival to blast his father and the media. >> of course, investigative stories here on "today," but the
7:32 am
focus is on that essay he wrote for the hollywood reporter. it was published just before the cannes film festival. the intent was controversial. woody allen on the red carpet at cannes, his new movie opening the glitzy festival in france. this morning his son speaking out against his famous father, writing a scathing essay in the hollywood reporter. his targets? his father and the media, specifically how the media covers sexual assault. allen was accused in 1992 of sexually assaulting pharaoh's sister dylan when she was a little girl. i believe my sister, pharaoh writes. this was always true as a brother who trusted her and even at five years old was troubled by our father's strange behavior around her, climbing into her bed in the middle of the night, forcing her to suck his thumb. allen has never been charged with a crime and has vehemently
7:33 am
denied the accusations since they surfaced years ago. last night hollywood's q & a with allen did not include the accusations. to me it is a sterling example of how not to talk about sexual assault. the old school media's slow evolution has helped create a culture of impunity and silence. >> he has not been rejected by the hollywood community and is largely embraced as an artist. it's a cannes issue we do. for him to front that issue was not strange or out of character. >> reporter: in 1992, they said probable evidence existed to prosecute allen but the evidence was not there.
7:34 am
after she received the golden globe on allen's achievement on his behalf. >> a lot of people didn't think allen should receive the award because of accusations. did you have any trepidations? >> no. of course not. you have to look at my life this way. he gave me the opportunity to be here and talk to you. it's all because of woody allen. >> kristin stewart, the star of allen's new film, told "variety" she had a conversation with them. if we were persecuted for the amount of [ bleep ] that's not true, our lives would be over. pharaoh writes, it hurts my sister every time one of my heroes or a star her age like miley cyrus works with woody allen. at the cannes film festival wednesday night, reporters said no one asked his son about his blist blistering essay at the news conference. but the audience gasped when they attempted a joke, telling
7:35 am
allen, you have shot many films in europe while you have not even been sentenced to rape in the u.s. we reached out to woody allen's rep for comments about pharaoh's essay, but we have not heard back. we also have not heard back from his reps and miley cyrus declined to comment. the editor put a note at the end that said the interview happened before farrow's essay was published, so the media obviously taking notes of what he wrote. >> a lot of people talking about it, which was ronan's intention, i think. we head back to maine with a check of the weather from dylan. >> announcer: today's weather is brought to you by walgreen's. get your red nose today only at walgreen's to help kids in need. >> reporter: the first sunrise in the country happens here in acadia, so our day has been way longer than everybody else's, the sun helping to warm us up up
7:36 am
and down the east coast. the second one back in the rockies is going to start to cool things down significantly. it will be about 15 to 25 degrees cooler than average, especially as we get to the middle and end of the week and into the weekend. we are looking at temperatures up through minneapolis only 51 degrees tomorrow, then eventually that will continue to sag through the great lakes and into the northeast. by the time we get into saturday, we are looking for temperatures still warm in new york, but you go to indianapolis and temperatures will be in the mi50s, thend- good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. finally got some sunshine. look at the warmup. upper 70s for university city. to the south, vineland into the middle 70s. a little cooler at the shore with an easterly breeze. 67 degrees for wildwood. up to 72 in atlantic city. lewis will see a high of 66 degrees.

8:51 am
i'll add some oreos with that creamy mix. >> then you put the cheesecake layer on top of the layer we've already baked? >> right on top. >> is there anything better than this? you can see it's nice and delicious and you want to pour it over your cheesecake. this is kind of an anything goes recipe. over it goes, and we spread it out. now, that one needs to bake for like 20 minutes. >> so you're not overbaking because now the brownie layer is getting another baking? >> we're only going to partially bake the brownies. what you end up with is a spongy texture so you have a line of brownie on the bottom and a line of chocolate on top. the brownie mixture is getting a little firm, so you pop it in the microwave for about 20 seconds. do you want to do the honors? >> sure. it doesn't have to be a figure 8, though? >> no. >> guys, would you like to try the oreos or other candy?
8:52 am
