saturday morning. i'm craig melvin alongside dylan dreyer and sheinelle jones. stephanie ruhle has the day off. >> and the story of redemption. >> it was. >> i usually don't like watching those things happen. >> it was an attempt at redemption for the engineer. the guy who designed evel knievel's back in the '70s. the chute opened early. the guy's son used the same design this time around. >> it makes it better. >> stay tuned. >> we will have more on that in a bit. let's start with the battle for the white house. the election is 52 days away. here is the state of the race. hillary clinton will be at a black caucus dinner with president obama. president obama will deliver his seventh and final keynote address. meanwhile, donald trump and mike pence hit the campaign trail
separately. trump with his day in texas and ending with the rally in colorado. pence holds a rally in florida this afternoon. lots to get to this afternoon. let's get to katy tur with more. katy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. the polls showing hillary clinton and donald trump are neck and neck right now. the daily and hourly controversy is doing little to blunt trump's momentum. he is insinuating violence against his rival and trying to put an end to the conspiracy theory he perpetuated. topping off a surreal day on the campaign trail, donald trump waded into controversy again. telling his supporters hillary clinton opposes the second amendment. she doesn't. and daring her secret service detail to disarm. >> take their guns away. she doesn't want them. >> reporter: the clinton campaign outraged. saying this kind of talk should be out of bounds for a
presidential candidate. trump's comment coming over a month over what he made what some considered a threat at clinton at another event. >> if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is. i don't know. >> reporter: earlier, after five years of nurturing a conspiracy theory, trump took seven seconds to state what is true. >> president barack obama was born in the united states, period. >> reporter: but then two falsehoods. >> hillary clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. i finished it. >> reporter: down the street, the members of the black caucus were not impressed. >> it shows he was mistaken and incorrect.
>> reporter: neither was hillary clinton. >> he is feeding in the worst impulses. bigotry. >> reporter: nor michelle obama. >> there were those who questioned and continue to question for the past eight years up to this very day whether my husband was even born in this country. >> reporter: sitting in the oval office, her husband shrugged it off. >> i was confident where i was born. i think most people were as well. >> reporter: while democrats seized on the 180, supporters awaiting him in miami dug in. >> he doesn't need it. obama has to say i'm sorry to us. to the american people. >> reporter: trump was on jimmy fallon on thursday and clinton on fallon last night where it was her chance to poke fun at herself. >> welcome. welcome. thank you so much. it is great to have you here.
let's talk about -- let's talk about everything. >> reporter: that as you can see a much lighter note. both candidates are back on the campaign trail today. craig. >> katy tur for us in washington. full interview with jimmy and clinton will air monday. >> let's bring in josh for a moment this morning. he talked about taking away the guns of the secret service agents, but he is upping the ante. is he inciting violence here? >> i think trump was making a point about gun control. he is do it an an extremely irresponsible way. you would say this is an outrageous thing to do grave damage to the campaign. on the substantive level it was outrageous. trump has said outrageous things for the campaign and often faced no consequence for it.
as a matter of electoral analysis, does this shift the race? no. my guess is things that should outrage the public should not. >> we watched this announcement play out where he finally admitted that president obama was in fact born here. the way it was done and the contents of how did it play or how do you think it would play with independent voters or undecided voters if there are any left? >> the bizarre spectacle that happened with the launch of the luxury hotel in washington, d.c. for a half hour is how everybody experienced the story. most people were not sitting home watching msnbc through the controversy, although they should. >> thank you. >> it made a lot of people in the media angry. they felt they were lied to and told donald trump would take questions and he did not. they got tricked into covering something. he talked about the topic he
said he would talk about for two sentences and did not put it to bed. he said the president was born here, period. he spent eight years with this theory. what changed your mind? the long form birth certificate. you got five years ago and continue to go around and saying he had not been born in the country. they did not put the issue to bed. the thing i don't know how is the electorate going to look at it? most people know the president was born in the united states, but how many think this is outrageous racist slur and how many think it is a weird thing that trump was wrong about. >> with that said, the national polls right now are in a dead heat. what is it? is he surging or is hillary clinton dipping a bit because of the rough week and health scare? >> i think hillary clinton had a
bad couple weeks with the fbi notes. the basket of deplorables comment. the polls did continue to fall after she said that. and finally with the health scare that both raised questions for some people about her health and had her off the campaign trail for several days. on the other hand, donald trump changed the way he campaigned. he changed his top campaign team in august. brought in kellyanne conway who is experienced operative. she is giving him better advice. he is listening. donald trump is running this bizarre campaign for over a year and few points behind hillary clinton. what if running a slightly less bizarre campaign is enough to catch up with her? we will see over the next week to the debate whether being out there and showing people she is healthy, is that enough to improve or is donald trump's somewhat less outrageous and out of control persona enough. >> leads up to the debate.
josh, thank you. let's get to breaking news. two police officers and four other people have been shot. one of them killed by a gunman on a wild rampage in philadelphia. monique braxton from wcau has more. monique, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we learned one woman has died. she was shot in a car outside a bar. right now, two police officers are recovering here at 10 presbyterian. one of them worked for the university of pennsylvania. you can see that officers have arrived to visit them. just after 11:00 friday evening, chaos in the streets of philadelphia. police say sergeant sylvia young, 19-year veteran with the philadelphia police department was in her patrol car when she was ambushed. she was shot eight times. mostly in the left arm. police say her bulletproof vest protected her during the assault. the suspect fled on foot

>> it indicates his hate for police officers and probation officers. >> reporter: and no word this morning on the type of weapon that was used, but one witness did tell us he heard rapid gunfire. maybe as many as 20 shots. we asked the police commissioner if the gunman is known to them. we were told it is too early in the investigation to answer that. live in philadelphia, monique braxton for the "today" show. >> thank you. two more police officers are recovering from gunshot wounds in ft. worth, texas. officers walked into a hail of gunfire while responding to a suicide call. one is in critical condition. body armor saved the other from serious injury. the suspect eed shooter is dead. this comes five months after the gunman want brought down by a sniper. and just when gas was creeping below $2 there a gallon, millions are about to
see a spike all because of a pipeline leak in alabama. nbc's sarah dallof has more. >> reporter: good morning, craig. a section of the critical gas pipeline remains shutdown for repairs. a process expected to stretch into next week as price increases and shortages will ripple across the south. this morning, pain at the pump. >> things are going up. >> reporter: price increases and supply issues expected across a number of states. >> it will make it harder for people to get by. a lot of people rely on having easy access and cheap gas. >> reporter: already drivers in cities in georgia and tennessee are seeing shortages. this knoxville station pump dry. this is the result of the major pipeline leak in central alabama. the colonial pipeline company line one which stretches from texas to new york harbor and delivering about 40% of the east
coast gasoline was severed last week and disrupting service. the company issued a statement saying it has more than 680 employees and partners working as safely as expeditiously as possible to repair the pipe. in the meantime, ships have been dispatched and more tanker trucks have been ordered in five states. >> i see a lot of scrambling behind the scenes. people are taking every pain they can and going down every avenue to make sure these stations are filled with gasoline. >> reporter: gasbuddy.com estimates price increases from 5 cents to 20 cents per gallon. bad news for drivers. >> gas is gas. we have to drive around to work. >> you have to pay the price. >> reporter: and once that leak is fixed, analysts believe
prices will drop quickly especially since stations are switching to winter blend. craig, that assumes everything is going as scheduled and repairs go smoothly. back to you. >> sarah dallof, thank you. a ceremony planned for penn state university that will honor the late coach joe paterno. the 50th celebration comes at a time when the school and community are still reeling from the firing after he was accused of covering up the jerry sandusky sex abuse scandal for years. we have morgan radford with more. >> reporter: today is the first time paterno is officially recognized since he walked off the field in 2011. while he remains a beloved figure for former players and fans, critics say this is not the time or place to honor a man with a troubled legacy. the man known as joe pa honored today on the 50th anniversary of
his first game as coach of the football team. four years after his death and five years after he was fired, accused of covering up sex abuse by his assistant coach jerry sandusky. >> i think this is a huge step back. he had a legal, moral and professional obligation and yet he stayed silent. >> reporter: the editors of the student run newspaper criticizing the decision. this is our penn state. this is a penn state without joe paterno. those of us here now are beyond ready to move on. moving on has been tough for a school heavily affected by the legacy. >> we love penn state. >> reporter: paterno was the most victorious coach in college football history. during his tenure, travis weaver, alleged sandusky abused them as boys. >> he knows what he did. >> reporter: sandusky is serving 30 to 60 years behind bars. charged with 45 counts of child
sex abuse dating back to the '90s. >> thanks and pray a bit for the victims. >> reporter: paterno, never charged for the crime, did report one incident to officials. he told the grand jury he did not know of any other incident. although court documents he knew as far back as 1976. days before he was fired in 2011, he told reports, i wish i had done more. in a statement released this week, the university says today's activities will focus on the commitment paterno had to the students and academics and highlights of the 1966 game. >> we celebrate football more than we celebrate survivors. that sends a dangerous message. >> reporter: in a statement, his wife says she hopes it focuses on the players and she said he did not cover up the allegations and the last word on this saga has not been written.
sheinelle. >> thank you, morgan. a standoff is over with police and suspected gunman aboard a train north of los angeles. nearly 200 passengers were evacuated last night after reports of a man with a gun on board the train. police cornered the alleged gunman in the bathroom and took him into custody. no injuries reported. controversy at the college football game with baylor and rice. we are not talking about the game. at halftime, the rice marching band formed the roman numeral 9. a reference to title 9. the ban made itself into a star which was a knock on ken starr. baylor did get the last laugh. winning the game 38-10. wow. dylan, how about a check on the weather. >> moving right along. let's talk about stormy weather back through the midwest and great lakes. we had heavy storms in chicago
