7:00 am
with all day breakfast. good morning. face to face. hand to hand combat. donald trump and hillary clinton go after each other in a spirited first debate. >> all talk, no action. >> there's something he's hiding. >> attacking each other's record. >> hillary has experience, but it's bad experience. >> and getting personal. >> this is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs. >> did either candidate move the needle? we'll ask our decision 2016 team and the vice presidential candidates tim kaine and mike pence weighing in live today, tuesday, september 27th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news,
7:01 am
and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. we'll get the numbers later today, but they were saying this might be the most watched debate ever. maybe 100 million viewers. that would get us into super bowl territory. >> there was a lot of hype. in some ways it lived up to it although i think if you look at the coverage this morning most people agree no knockout a lot to chew on no question about it. we'll get reaction to the debate from the two vice presidential nominees. senator tim kaine and governor mike pence in just a little while. first our decision 2016 team has it covered starting with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. i think you're right. it was an historic night. largely lived up to the hype. a night of contrasts on policy, personality and preparation.
7:02 am
her preparation. donald trump relying heavily on his instincts. after their opening remarks, pleasantries were quickly abandon abandoned. donald trump challenging hillary clinton on a washington insider. >> you haven't done it for 30 years. >> i have been a senator and secretary of state. >> reporter: clinton dismissi >> i have a feeling by the end of this evening i'm going to be blamed for everything that's ever happened. >> why not? >> over 90 minutes, clinton accusing her brash opponent of being racist, sexist and xenophobic. on trump's past comments about women. >> this is a man who has called women, pigs, slobs and dogs. >> and on the birther controversy. >> he has really started his
7:03 am
racist lie that our first black president was not an american citizen. >> reporter: the debate highlighted the contender's liabilities. trump defending his refusal to release his tax returns like presidential candidates have done for decades. >> i will release my tax returns against my lawyer's wishes when she releases her 33,000 e-mails that have been deleted. >> reporter: the billionaire admitting on he didn't pay any federal income tax. >> he didn't pay federal income tax. >> that makes me smart. >> that means zero for troops. zero for vets. zero for schools or health. >> reporter: the republican nominee scolding clinton over her e-mail scandal. >> i made a mistake using a private e-mail. >> that's for sure. that was not a mistake. that was done purposely. >> reporter: trump raising eyebrows trying to convert what viewers see as his biggest
7:04 am
>> i have much better judgment than she does. no question about that. i also have a much better temperament than she has. >> reporter: one of the night's fiercest exchanges, on the fight against isis. >> at least i have a plan to fight isis. >> you're telling the minute everything you want to do. you tell the enemy everything you want to do. no wonder you've been fighting isis your entire adult life. >> reporter: and on trump's dispn iraq war before it began. >> donald supported the invasion of iraq. that's proved. >> reporter: the later it got, the more heated the exchanges. >> where did you find it? >> she has become a u.s. citizen and you can bet she's going to vote this november. >> okay. good. let me just tell you -- >> reporter: by night's end clinton believes her own debate preparation paid off.
7:05 am
criticized me for preparing for this debate. and yes i did. you know what else i prepared for? i prepared to be president and i think that's a good thing. >> reporter: unlike in past campaign years, there's no written agreement between the two campaigns that would effectively lock them into participate in each of the next two debates. while donald trump's adviser rudy giuliani said last night that if he were running, he would pull out of the next debate. trump told nbc news late last night, that he is committed to showing up for the scheduled october 9th. matt and savannah? >> all right, peter. thank you very much. >> let's turn to chuck todd and nicole wallace. good morning to you both. if you watched this until 9:30 and turned it off, a lot of people felt trump is having a very good night. it did seem like his energy and his answering of the questions waned over the night. would you agree? >> the lack of preparation showed itself in the last half of the debate.
7:06 am
her stamina, he seemed to run out of gas at the end. he seemed to run out of steam. i think that goes to a lack of preparation because he took the bait on almost every little thing. the last half of the debate i can't remember a substantive exchange on issues. i remember him defending himself. it became more about himself rather than specific issues. >> i don't think it was as time went on, i thought in each particular section his first responses to t question, if you will, were fairly much back to his talking points. but when the followups came, he just went back to his talking points. so there seemed to be maybe preparation but a lack of depth there. >> i mean, understatement of the day. listen, i was involved in preparing a couple of different candidates who were not known for their debate acumen.
7:07 am
performances than trump did last night. george w. bush who had a disastrous first debate against john kerry and had to recalibrate. the trump camp was not trying to spin this as a good night for them. their word was missed opportunities. missed opportunity after missed opportunity. i have to say both of these things can be true. she was excellent and she exceeded expectations that were very, very high for her. and his poll numbers will likely not be affected by a terrible performance. let's get to the so what of it. is it going to move the needle for either of them? >> if it moves the needle for anybody i think it's more likely to move it for her than him. supporters probably loved the atmosphere that he created. oh yeah. he got her with tax return and e-mail question. there are a group of voters that are swing voters, moderate republicans, suburban republicans, nothing he did last
7:08 am
added those people to his column. these are people pondering clinton. >> temperament and trust are a lot of words we're hearing. on the subject of trust and her e-mail situation. i thought she did something very smart last night. when she was asked last night, she answered two or three sentences and stopped. she didn't do what she's done in the past going on and on layering answer. >> she said yesterday we learned so much from the reviews we got and response we got from the commander in chief forum. they had ten days, two weeks, to completely recalibrate. i think they felt like what they had to do was answer that question and move on. they did that last night. i will say to him, he didn't get on offense. the problem -- voters are willing to give him a pass for not being a politician. voters are willing -- he's graded on a curve because voters
7:09 am
truthfulness of the way he answers questions. he couldn't get himself on offense and that's why -- >> early on he did on a couple of issues. on a couple issues he did. >> she was speechless almost when he said so when you vote on tpp, that means president obama did -- she was speechless. he has her on trade. watch focus groups in ohio and pennsylv cybersecurity comes in and he misses the e-mail hit. >> next debate what does he have to do differently? >> he'll do much better. he has to do better than last night. >> easier said than done. >> we'll talk about a new low bar. he can, i would imagine he'll be better. he needs to watch videotape of himself on mute. split screens didn't help him. >> don't go anywhere.
7:10 am
>> we want to turn now to senator tim kaine. hillary clinton's running mate. senator, good morning. good to see you. >> good to be with you. thanks. >> if you were a millennial and you were watching last night and toying with the idea of voting for a third-party candidate because you want some sort of change to be brought into the process, did hillary clinton say anything last night that you think would sway them in her direction? >> well, yeah, things. she laid out a detailed plan about how we're going to grow the economy including significant support for education and bringing down college costs and secondly, she drew a clear distinction between herself and donald trump on a fundamental issue with millennials which is she accepts climate science and believes we need to do something about climate change, and she pointed out that donald trump believes
7:11 am
but he's said it over and over again. this is a fundamental litmus test for them. they want to know what you'll do to deal with climate issues and the planet. so she drew a good distinction. >> she was asked about the e-mails. tried to dispatch with that question rather quickly. donald trump did point out correctly that several staffers were given fifth amendment immunity against criminal investigation. she didn't take it on. she didn't explain it. can you explain that? >> you know, i thought that there was a pair of trust issues that were put on the table for each of them. the e-mail question was hers to answer. she did. she just looked right in the camera and said i made a mistake. i apologize for it. i take responsibility. there's been an fbi investigation. they determined nothing more needs to be done.
7:12 am
was the birther issue. he wouldn't apologize. his explanation of why he did it made no sense. why he persisted in it for five years. you got to see a trust issue put before each. one candidate said i made a mistake. i learned. i'm sorry. one refused to apologize and refused to take responsibility. i thought that contrast was sharp. >> both you and secretary clinton over the course of the last quite long period of time said you don't believe donald trump has the temperament to be chief. talk to me about his temperament last night? what did you see that either bolsters your claim or shakes it? >> you know, i don't think he was prepared. in terms of the specifics, he offered very few specifics on any policy issue. he did attack. that's true. in terms of policy, he didn't offer specifics with the exception of his big tax plan, which is huge cuts for folks at the top. he didn't show a command of
7:13 am
like questions about his tax return. and he showed that he was easily rattled. probably i thought hillary's best moment was when donald trump got challenged about comments that he's made about her looks that she doesn't look presidential. he tried to change that and said i was talking about her stamina. hillary said you go to 120 countries and you sit before a congressional hearing for 11 hours and then talk to me about stamina. in the split screen i was watching at that moment, she looked like she was ready for another 11 hours and debate and he looked like he was out of gas and leaning up against the ropes. that showed a temperament and preparedness issue and really worked to hillary's advantage. >> senator, we appreciate you being with us after a long night. thank you very much. >> you bet. thanks, guys. >> in the next half hour we'll talk to donald trump's running
7:14 am
night was a feeling of certainly relief but also that they felt they had a good night. >> no doubt. it is interesting. you brought up the millennial issue first with them. it was clear they had two pieces of business they were hoping to do. one is the way they had this prepared ad with the former beauty pageant contestant who donald trump apparently offended. the minute she launched that hit on him, within ten minutes of the debate being over they were out with an it targeted latinos. the point is she has two big problems in the obama coalition. enthusiasm with latinos. i'll be curious to see if that worked last night. >> a week from tonight is the vice presidential. is that ever about the vice presidential candidates or is that just surrogates for the presidential candidates? >> i mentioned sarah palin in the last segment. in that case it was.
7:15 am
than stellar first debate against john kerry. vice president cheney was able to turn the momentum back in his direction. it becomes pivotal when one side or the other has lost momentum. if mike pence has a great night, the trump team can turn momentum back in their direction. >> interesting. you mention strategy. pieces of business that the clinton team wanted to accomplish. on the other side, you did see trump hitting some sweet spots for republican voters. just mentioned fifth amendment thing. he talked about janet yellen at the fed. do you think that's a good strategy in terms of expanding? >> i think their goal was to use this to unite republicans and right before the debate he put out a new list of potential supreme court nominees. i thought that actually was a missed piece of business last night. that's been the most important rallying cry for many republicans is the supreme
7:16 am
time on that last night. you know, again, this goes to preparation issue. there were ways he could have inserted some issues and he just whiffed. time and again he whiffed at opportunities. >> chuck and nicole, thank you so much. we'll have a lot more for you guys and how this may reshape the race in just a little while. >> let's take a turn and get a check of the weather from al. >> we've been talking about the flooding in iowa. cedar rapids. good news is the river there, cedar river, just about rdy start receding. not quite at records but awfully close. as you look closer you can see that we're looking at the peak happening sometime this afternoon and then quickly receding. here in the east, we've got a front that goes from new england all of the way down into texas. heaviest rain is going to be along the mid-atlantic states into the northeast. we really need the rain here in the northeast in new england. got a bit of a drought going on. the heaviest rain is actually going to happen down along the mid-atlantic coast.
7:17 am
look at what we look at the next five days. upwards of five inches of rain from central pennsylvania all of the way down into the virginias and may see even something else developing as we get into the weekend. it's going to be a wet time. where we really need the rain, we're not getting it. we'll get to your know how you earn the title ... world's best mom? by starting each day with a perfectly balanced mug of... i've got this. mom! to be on top of your mom game... nailed it! thanks so much. you need a balanced coffee you can drink throughout the day. mccaf? coffees brew a smooth blend. for a taste that's not too strong, but never weak. so you can savor every sip knowing you are matriarch supreme. mommy's not a napkin honey.
7:18 am
>> that's your latest weather. >> al, thank you so much. coming up, one of the times people were talking about last night. what exactly did donald trump mean when he said he didn't make clinton's family. we'll get into that. >> his running mate, indiana governor mike pence weighs in on the debate and where the race goes from here.
7:19 am
vo: we asked women in pinellas county to describe congressman david jolly in one word: woman 1: dangerous. woman 2: backwards. woman 3: out-of-touch... woman 4: that's 3 words. vo: david jolly shares donald trump's backwards agenda for women. jolly opposes a woman's right to choose and voted to defund planned parenthood and deny women access to basic health care like mammograms and cancer screenings. woman 5: i have 3 words for david jolly... not for women.

7:26 am

7:27 am
we are tracking breaking news. there's a school bus crash in hernando county. let's go straight to leslee lacey. >> all right. this is just outside of the brooksville area. and we have been tracking this for you all morning. here's what you need to know. just east of brooksville, we have an accident involving a weatherby road. so cortez is the alternate. eagle 8 hd is over it live. you can see right in the back there, looks like that vehicle is just crunched up by the back end of the school bus. and now injuries involved here, the person that was in the vehicle was injured. and there was one person above on the school bus. that person was not injured. again, completely shut down. and now leigh for the weather. it's beautiful. when you look right now at the
7:28 am
72degrees, clear sky, and temperature-wise, cooler than yesterday, 67 in zephyrhills. 77 in tampa. 37 in clearwater. 71 in bartow. everywhere but tampa is cooer than yesterday. plant city, lakeland, brandon, five degrees cooler. three degrees cooler in brooksville and clearwater. just off the new port richey coastline, tracking one small shower. not on land. but i left in a 20% rain chance for the coast this morning. that goes up to 30% from noon until 6:00.
7:29 am
7:30 am
back now at 7:30 on a tuesday morning. it's the 27th day of september, 2016. it's also the morning after the first all-important presidential debate. millions watching last hillary clinton, donald trump going head to head for 90 minutes on the most explosive issues in this election. >> we talked to tim kaine in our half hour. mike pence is here and we'll talk to him in a moment and today's first campaign moment happened before clinton and trump took the stage. their spouses were at the center of attention.
7:31 am
of the audience. a lot of people on twitter noticed the setting was different from 11 years ago and bill clinton attended the trump wedding. >> one of the big questions heading into the debate, how was trump going to handle himself? that temperament question. nbc's hallie jackson is still at hofstra. good morning to you. >> reporter: for donald trump it was all about whether he could come off as presidential under that very big spotlight and in the end it was talk about his temperament viral. maybe not for the reasons you think. temperament the top trend of the night with twitter and facebook lighting up when donald trump said this. >> i have much better judgment than she does. there's no question about that. i also have a much better temperament than she has, you know. i have a much better -- >> reporter: hitting his
7:32 am
a temperament problem. >> reporter: the first general election presidential debate, a kind of test with trump kicking it off seeming sarcastic. >> with all fairness to secretary clinton, yes, is that okay, good. i want you to be very happy. it's very important to me. >> reporter: for both candidates, it wasn't just what they said but how they said it. their expressions, volumes. split screen showing clinton appearing composed and sometimes amused. >> i have a feeling by the end of the evening i'll be blamed for everything that's ever happened. >> reporter: compare that to trump's more animated expression repeatedly interrupting clinton and even rolling his eyes. >> were you mad? some said you seemed angry. >> i was not angry at all. >> reporter: in the spin room after the debate, trump's team
7:33 am
call his restraint. >> i was going to say something extremely rough to hillary, to her family. i said to myself, i can't do it. i just can't do it. it's inappropriate. it's not nice. >> reporter: the candidate himself pleased he held off on certain topics like bill clinton's past affairs. >> i'm very glad that i didn't mention it because chelsea was in the room. indiscretions by bill i didn't th do. >> reporter: did either candidate in your view look presidential? >> i think they each looked presidential to their own supporters in the course of this. i think what both candidates tried to do was to appeal to their base voters. if this was a debate that was supposed to persuade people in the middle to come to either side, i doubt if it accomplished that. >> reporter: so the question now given all this, will trump prepare any differently for the next debate?
7:34 am
don't think so and will continue to do what they've done which is let trump be trump. >> we're joined by indiana governor mike pence. governor, good morning. nice to have you with us. >> good to be here. >> you saw the debate last night. you were in the hall. was this donald trump at his best or is there room for improvement? >> it was a good debate. i thought donald trump had a great night. what the american people saw is what crowds of tens of and that's someone that speaks straight from his mind and straight from his heart and focused on issues that american people care about talking about jobs and trade economy and trade deals that will work for the american worker. i was just excited to be there and excited to see donald trump lay out that positive vision for america. quite a contrast to hillary clinton who spent two to one the amount of time attacking my
7:35 am
talking about her plan. >> i thought he struggled on the birther question. he was asked what happened last week that made him step away from that question and declare once again that barack obama was born in this country and had some unusual answer about he accomplished his goal of getting obama to release the birth certificate but that came five years ago and he persisted with this birther question. can you explain that because he didn't. >> i think the people that presidential campaign was really the media. >> he was involved as well with innuendo and questions. >> i've been campaigning with him for the last two months and watch his campaign unfold the last two years. donald trump has been focused on rebuilding our military and having a stronger america on the world stage. >> he had multiple opportunities to put it to rest and declined. multiple opportunities. >> the reality is that -- and he said this last night. this began long before he walked
7:36 am
ago. it began literally in the 2008 campaign. you know, i think the reason why he's made the connection that he's made with millions of americans and the reason why you see the momentum in this campaign is even showing up in polls around the country is because donald trump is talking about the issues the american people care about and last night that was in high relief. here's a candidate in hillary clinton who has been on the public stage for the last 30 years and basically this was a donald trump showed the energy, the leadership to be able to carry a message of change washington, d.c. and strengthen this nation. >> let's talk about another issue. last night hillary clinton said donald trump thinks that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the chinese. mr. trump responded i did not, i did not, i do not say that. in point of fact if you look on twitter this morning, you'll see a tweet from donald trump that states the concept of global
7:37 am
the chinese in order to make u.s. manufacturing noncompetitive. was that not true? did he tell a lie last night? >> what he said was -- that by the way was a flippant and joking comment. >> if you look on twitter, there are probably at least six occasions where he calls climate change a hoax. >> what donald trump's position is the hoax is some bureaucrats in washington, d.c. can change the climate of the earth. the other piece of this is donald trump and i that hillary clinton's plans and barack obama's plans on climate change are going to continue to cost millions of american jobs. the big win last night for donald trump is that he really focused on jobs. he focused on not the tax increases that hillary clinton is advocating but tax relief for working families, small businesses, family farms, making america more competitive and that means pushing back on this radical climate change agenda
7:38 am
>> he didn't do something that he's done during the campaign and that is bringing up the marital problems of the clintons. chelsea was in the room. it wasn't appropriate. seemed proud of himself for that restraint. you will have to imagine chelsea will be in the room for the next several debates. do you agree with that strategy? >> the whole evening was an avalanche of insults by hillary clinton. it was remarkable. i was it was one line after another leveling personal attacks at donald trump. what the american people saw last night is the word you used. it was restraint. for the president of the united states, that person has to have the temperament, they have to have restraint to deal with a wider world and challenges facing the american people, and i couldn't have been more proud of donald trump -- >> he hasn't shown the restraint on the campaign trail on that subject. >> i think what people saw last
7:39 am
the stage. one very, very scripted politician, 30 years in public life and here on the other side you saw a businessman, a doer, someone who spent a lifetime building, speaking straight to the american people. i thought donald trump had great night. >> governor pence, thank you for getting up early with us. we appreciate your time. we'll see one week from tonight. >> let's bring chuck and nicole back in. this is weird because governor pence is still here. he says hisni clear distinctions last night and had a good night. what did you think? >> he's a very important person in the trump world because he made the two best points that his candidate made last night. the best arguments against hillary clinton is that she's been there for 30 years and that donald trump has spent this campaign on the trail, on the stump, listening to ordinary americans. but donald trump didn't underscore those points last night as well as governor pence did this morning. >> it was interesting.
7:40 am
points being shaped and they talked this morning. he is not denying it wasn't a good night now. there were a lot of insults in the air and looks like they want to blame hillary clinton for the tone of the evening. interrogato interesting to hear him say that. >> right after the debate we go to the spin room. that's where the surrogates go. nicole you have been at this rodeo many, many times. donald trump himself went int that could be interpreted a couple different ways. was he trying to clean up his performance and immediately knew that or was it just he loves the cameras and couldn't stay away? >> he was in the spin room after many of the gop primary debates. i think he likes the spin room. it is, as you said, traditionally a place for staffers to do that sort of work. he has so far liked doing that work for himself. that won't hurt him. i think his problem is the
7:41 am
to get the campaign back on message at the same moment the candidate was on another news program doubling down against miss universe. >> by the way, you saw governor pence. he's got a running mate that works hard defending him. does a pretty good job doing it. >> if you based a lot of your campaign, chuck and nicole, on being a donald trump has done. he says he's a winner. you have a performance last night where it's hard to walk away saying i was a big winner last night. what does it do to your mojo going forward? >> after all of his setbacks, when he lost the wisconsin primary and horrible august. he was at war with a gold star family. it's hard to even say that sentence. he was able to recalibrate. sometimes in his inner circle
7:42 am
is when he has a setback, those who want him to maked adjustmens have their influence and people that want donald to be donald win the day. >> there's a long history whether the president or a candidate coming back from a first debate and coming back strong. >> we'll know that if in two days we hear news that they got donald trump to watch his performance. they got him to watch on mute. remember that right after al gore's bad first then governor bush. they leaked that out. a way of trying to reassure supporters, he's working harder this time. i wouldn't be surprised in two days we get that kind of conversation from the kellyanne conways and governor penses of the world. >> you're excused. let us take a look at the rest of the debate schedule. vice presidential candidates will square off a week from tonight. there are two more presidential debates still to come. the next on october 9th in st. louis.
7:43 am
that one in las vegas. >> from politics to the weather. al is standing by his weather board. >> it's great having so many people here. we're going to cool down a bit around the great lakes into the northeast. going to feel more fallike which is okay. look at these temperatures going into latter part of the week. 69 in green bay. new york city dropping into the upper 60s. 80 degrees in raleigh. as we head toward the weekend, look at this. boston, you'll be 53 in atlanta. 48 in kansas city.
7:44 am
>> get that weather any time you need it. go to the weather channel on cable. coming up, what's your sign? are you sure? why you may have been reading the wrong horoscope your entire life. that seems like a pickup line. >> do you come here often? >> carson has deb impressive linda. it seems age isn't slowing you down. but your immune system weakens as you get older increasing the risk for me, the shingles virus. i've been lurking inside you since you had chickenpox. i could surface anytime as a painful, blistering rash. one in three people get me in their lifetime, linda. will it be you? and that's why linda got me zostavax, a single shot vaccine. i'm working to boost linda's immune system

8:50 am
affects people as adults and choices we make moving forward. >> i don't think a spoiler alert applies when the show has been out with a week. episode one ends with a big twist. is that something that we can expect week to week? >> there will be twists occasionally. there's a little bit of a reveal at the end of this episode tonight that airs. it's not a show that sort of relies on that. the writing is elevated. >> a little comes off each week. i mentioned you have been entertaining people since -- >> since i was 15. >> 17 years. does it feel better now? >> yes. >> you didn't let me ask the question. i'll tell you what i was thinking. when you're young and wide eyed and it's kind of almost child star, it may not mean as much to you as it does right now. >> that's precisely it. i think i'm so much more comfortable in my skin now and
8:51 am
and appreciative of everything. i don't take any of it for granted. i don't think i did before either. when that machine is rolling and that ball is rolling, it's hard to really take stock of what's happening. >> when it comes to a halt all of a sudden and picks back up, that's when you're part of the workforce my dad used to say to me. >> i like that. >> mandy moore, great to have you here. you can catch "this is us" tonight at 10:00, 9:00 central here on nbc after "the voice." soccer stars on the planet, carli lloyd, is here. first, this is "today" on nbc. i wore a badge f for 38 years knowing how much you trusted us to keep you safe. yet when a officer was killed in action florida was not doing enough to give their families the help they desperately needed. dana young understood. that was wrong, so we changed that law. to ensure these families get the

8:54 am
i had to call crawl my way to the top. it's about perseverance and obstacles that came my way. it's not truly just a soccer story. it can inspire so many people that want to be great, you know. they can do it if they put their mind to it. >> you wonder if some people are just born great. when you read about what your coach and you quoted him in the book. he not weak, your character was poor. you make excuses and find people to blame." that somehow motivated you to turn the beat around, didn't it? >> i think there was no question about my dedication at an early age. i loved the game of soccer. i needed someone to help navigate me through life and through obstacles. i respected him. when i first met him, he was straight up with me.
8:55 am
>> i was mad when i had to run for 12 minutes. i took in everything that he said. i was like a sponge and just listened to him. worked really hard. >> you talk a lot about soccer culture. you said early on, i don't think you used the word click, but it could be a girls club. what do you mean by that? >> i think when you get a bunch of high level athletes, females, in a room together, 20 of them as i'm sure you guys know, we can be drama at times. i think that'sus competition within the room. you know, the team is awesome. it wouldn't be this magnificent team if we weren't all like that. there were some challenging times and some moments where i was shedding tears in my hotel room. i look back and it was great. i wouldn't change a thing. >> like you said, the book isn't only about soccer. it's about family and things like that. you say in the book you've had a strained relationship with your family since the beijing olympics. is it a little weird to have written about it and know that
8:56 am
about your life? >> absolutely. i think when i first was preparing to write this book, i wasn't going to include this. my family situation. in discussing things with my writer, it is part of my journey. i think to so many other people whether you're a parent reading it or a kid reading it, they can hopefully learn from it. it is part of the journey.

8:58 am
8:59 am
f0 good morning. i'm gayle guyardo. it18:00on this tuesday morning. and you know, the day started out really nice. >> yeah, even cooler than the past couple mornings. not a cloud in the sky from land o'lakes. still 73 in lakeland. 75 in brooksville. so not exactly fall-like. highs today at 89. now. looking much better on the roadways. we are slow through ybor city, 301 to 275, 12 minutes and slow on the veterans expressway but looking better. we want to the show you the howard frankland bridge looks fantastic now. and it was much slower just a little while ago. it's easing up. back to you, gayle. >> thank you. well the search is on for a man accused of molesting a child at a tjmaxx store in tarpon springs. police say a 6-year-old person

9:01 am
we thought there would be fireworks between the two. i would say yes on that front. >> let me tell you just my social media alone, everyone seemed to be engaged. we'll see what ratings are. i think policy-wise lacking on both sides. if hillary clinton's goal was to make temperament the a-1 topic of the morning, that seems to be the a-1 topic, al. >> i think so. i think the fact that you go and temperament when that happened, that moment. check it out. it's amazing. >> i have much better judgment than she does. there's no question about that. i also have a much better temperament than she has. you know. i have a much better -- i think my strongest asset maybe by far is my temperament. i have a winning tif ining temp. i know how to win. there's a person with a temperament that's got a problem.
9:02 am
okay. >> that was kind of the moment. the whoo and the shimmy. >> optics go. you have sniffles on his side and then you have the shoulder shimmy on her side. >> on another network he said he didn't have the sniffles and it was a bad microphone. >> that's what we call the spin in this business. this morning donald trump was on "fox & friends" said there was something wrong with his mike. if you look at social media and any o one noticed an audio problem at home. there are some people who said there was an issue for a few minutes in the auditorium but nothing that was broadcast to potentially 100 million people. >> it's funny. the last time we as a family, nick, deborah, leila, myself, sat there and watched tv together was the super bowl. >> wow. >> did it deliver?
9:03 am
>> nick is, like, i'm out. >> i'm staying up. i'm staying up -- >> 90 minutes is a long time without any commercial breaks. the question to billy's point, there will be many things to measure. ratings but also the most important did either of them move the polls. did either of the candidates pull in even 1%, 2% of those still undecided? or maybe those who are supporting gary johnson or stein? did they move the meter? >> we've been wrong. in the hallways here on msnbc, the policy wonks and the analysts have been wrong every step of the way. most people have said to me this morning they don't think donald trump hurt himself at all with the people who are already going to vote for him. your point. i think as i saw it, she -- you got what you got. she overprepared. she was totally prepared.
9:04 am
wung it and it was evidence in the debate. you're going to elect somebody. one is going to overprepare and one is going to wing it. >> there were some who said she overprepared and used that as a negative. i said last night on twitter was this intellect versus gut? if you have a kid doing homework while watching the debate, would you want your child going in for a test tomorrow morning and going for their gut or prepare? which is important to you? >> she made that point. i believe donald is or criticizing me for preparing. yes, i did prepare. and just like i'm preparing for president. there were a number of big moments. take a look. >> look at all of these places where so many of their jobs and their companies are just leaving. they're gone. hillary, i just ask you this. you've been doing this for 30 years. why are you just thinking about
9:05 am
for 30 years you've been doing it and now you're just starting to think of solutions. i will bring -- skuexcuse me. i will bring back jobs. you can't bring back jobs. >> i have thought about this quite a bit. >> for 30 years. she doesn't have the look. she doesn't have the stamina. i don't believe she does have the stamina. >> well, as soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal, a cease-fire, release of dissidents and opening of new opportunities and nations around the world, or even spends 11 hours testifying in front of a congressional committee, he can talk to me about stamina. >> i just left detroit. i just left philadelphia. i just -- you know, you've seen me. i've been all over the place. you decided to stay home. and that's okay. i will tell you, i've been all over. i met some of the greatest people i'll ever meet within
9:06 am
politicians have told them and what their politicians have done. >> i think donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate. and, yes, i did. you know what else i prepared for? i prepared to be president. and i think that's a good thing. >> she locked eyes with him on that delivery. we were talking earlier about whether it's fair to focus in on the sniffing or the drinking of the water or whate 40 years later we're talking about nixon not wearing makeup with kennedy. it's optics. when people get this we shouldn't talk about the body language, we are still talking about the impact that it had physically with nixon and kennedy. >> i saw the lincoln/douglas debate. >> you moderated it. >> unbelievable. they still say he should have shaved. he didn't. >> we spoke earlier, you and i,
9:07 am
then it seemed to run out of stamina or run out of gas the next 60 minutes was all about hillary. i'm wondering did a bunch of guys watch the first 30 minutes and say he's doing okay and i'm going to watch football and woke up today saying i thought he was great. >> you don't know what's going to happen with donald trump, which is why the ratings and cable news especially were so high when speeches. this is one of those rare moments that like leaving the football game at the end and you think your team is up and then you're running back from the parking lot. >> that was really the first quarter. >> she was ready. she was ready. the campaign as a team was ready ten minutes after the debate released this whole thing about miss universe, miss piggy. >> here's a little factoid for you. the number one tweeted thing of the night or retweeted, donald
9:08 am
climate change a hoax. of course in this age you have to watch what you tweet out. the number one tweeted thing was a tweet where he called climate change a hoax. that was the number one tweet. >> up next, they were once the hottest couple in hollywood. we're not talking about brad and angeli angelina. we're not talking about donald and hillary kiefer and julia until julia called off the wedding at the last minute but the reason was courageous according to kiefer. >> a lot of people don't realize or remember they were together.

obviously. >> for sure. now, remember, it was 1990 on the set of flat liners where kiefer sutherland and julia roberts met and fell in love and on the fast track to marry in 1991 head over heels for each other. kiefer tells "people" she was arguably the most famous woman in the world and this wedding was supposed to be something between the two of us. it became so big and took courage to say i so julia dropped him right there. i think that's tough. everyone is into the -- you get swept up in it. >> j. lo talks about that with men affleck when they were engaged how this becomes so big and even though you're a celebrity, you're still a couple trying to figure this out. it becomes overwhelming. >> you don't want to upset the whole world and you know you're
