9:02 am
>> from nbc news, this is "today" live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning. welcome to "today" on this sunday morning. i'm chanielle jones. >> and maybe it wasn't a baa zar izarre streak in the light. maybe it was al roker going to his new location. al roker is in spokane, washington. day three, a huge crowd with him up early on a sunday morning. we'll check in with him in a bit. we'll get to the top story this morning. donald trump on "saturday night live." it was an electric scene here on 30 rock overnight as donald trump took to the stage and protesters took to the streets outside the famed studio. that's where nbc's ristmaen dahlgren is this morning. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. between 250 and 300 protesters joined in that march late yesterday.
9:03 am
one group called the port racism offered $5,000 to any audience member to disrupt the show. the show went off without any problems, but it didn't ignore the protests. surrounded by trump impersonators, donald trump played the $5,000 brown fi ounty for laughs. >> and we're going to have a lot of fun tonight. >> trump's a racist! >> it's larry david. whemat are you doing, larry? >> they said if i said that they would give me $5,000. >> i can fully see that. they are bringing drugs -- >> they are saying trump was not welcomed back as the host of "celebrity apprentice." >> he's not joking about that. donald trump doesn't joke about those things. for him to make fun of that, that quite shameful.
9:04 am
>> the show answered critics with satire. >> sort of how like the people outside are chanting "dump trump" but they really just mean, what are his ideas on health care? >> reporter: the cast imagined a trump presidency two years on. >> just like i promised, right? >> prosperity is at an all-time high. >> so everyone is happy? >> we're so happy, mr. president. >> if you think that's how it's going to be when i'm president, you're wrong. it's going to be even better. >> hey. >> reporter: the host of "snl" is usually asked to get out of his comfort zone. >> listen to this, dave. enjoy my tweets. you used to call me on the cell phone >> but it remains to see who gets the last. >> reporter: i won't watch "snl" anymore. and this could spell trouble for nbc. >> i know how to take a joke. >> but donald trump was welcomed back at least for one saturday night. so one other controversy with
9:05 am
trump hosting is wil the other candidat now ask for equal time on "snl"? now with variety added up, it only was 12 minutes he was on camera, but we'll have to see if others are going to ask. >> kristen dahlgren, thank you. mean while, donald trump's main rival dr. ben carson is facing questions about his past this morning. he opened up to nbc's chris jansing about the scrutiny he lls a witchhunt. chris is joining us from washington this morning. chris, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, craig. ben carson is learning with ontrunner and a us the comes scrutiny, in particular to his rise to the tev in the medical le. but the questions about his biographical details pile up, so does the cash. ben carson coming off a week when his campaign raises jaw-dropping $3.5 million. says he has the media to thank. >> yeah, the people are saying
9:06 am
is going on and getting fmoed up. it is the us versus them thing. >>ow reporter: in an exclusive interview, carson criticized re rting as to whether he was offered a scholarship to west point into his redemption story and violence in his youth. and the latest from "toe wall street journal," during a riot at his high school in 1968 he protected a few white students from the attack by hiding them. a dramatic account of courage and kindness. but his story couldn't be confirmed in interviews with a half dozen of mr. carson's classmates and high school physics teacher. >> why would they know about that unless they were one of those? >> reporter: so it doesn't surprise you that no one in any of the stories have come forward? >> well, maybe one of those students will come forward. >> reporter: carson calls the scrutiny a witchhunt, unlike anything any former president has faced. >> i have not seen hat with anyone else. not even close. >> reporter: so what do you think is going on? why you? >> because i'm a threat. >> reporter: a bwh threat, he
9:07 am
says, to hillary clinton and the secular progressive movement. along with all the new scrutiny comes a bigger press corps with foreign reporters now in the mix. one british newspaper has a photo spread this weekend describing carson's marylanh home as a temple to himself including a painting of the candidate with jesus. ben carson tells me he expects many more questions and will get some of them tuesday at the next repu waican debate. he says he's scheduled just a half a dayopf prep adding life is preparation. you can see much more of my interview with ben carson today on "meet the press." craig? >> chris ja sing, thank you. chuck today is moderator of "meet the press." good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's stay with ben carson here. he's shifted blame to the media. does it look like he'll be able shakeoff the questions about his past? >> i don't know. and i say this because his candidacy is built on his personal story. his personal success.
9:08 am
and t it starts coming apart, if the personal story isn't what he has s taid it is, in some form or another, then it can unravel mothre than it would for a traditional politician. you know, we are conditioned to assume regular politicians embellish things. but ben carson was supposed to be different. and that's why i think it's more of a danger to him than it would be frankly to maybe anybody else in this field, simply because of how a his candidacy has been built and why so many voters have been gravitating to anward hwe. thcee it's the honesty factor that has been his strength. >> chuck, here we are a year out from the election and thought it would be a goodenime to look at whtaere the race was four years ago. we dusted off a poll, i'm sure you're familiar with this one. this is where we were, the nbc wall street journal poll. in 2011 you can see right there, rman cain surging. newt gingrich surging. obviously a lot of uncertainty then. what is different about the uncertainty this time around? >> well, notice who you didn't
9:09 am
pod int out in there. the eventual nominee was actually on top of the polls at that time. the eventual nominee mitt romney was always in first or second. this time we -- if you don't believe donald trump or ben carson's going to be the nominee, well then who is? so i think it's a lot more volatile than it was four years ago.think the potential for a donald trump or ben carson to be the nominee is higher today than it ever has been before. is it possible that the republican party suddenly decides to strt of step out a little bit and goes to a little more traditional way and maybe it's jeb bush, maybe marco rubio? but i don't think so. i think when you look at the different things that have happened, craig, in kentucky this week, an outsider candidate who republicans said was unelectable is the governor and won by ten points. a lot of conservatives believe they don't have to settle this time. and i think it means we are in
9:10 am
for a long ride. it will be twists, turns, pops of popcorn, sit back and enjoy the show. >> we will do it, my friend. >> the gift that keeps giving. see you in a bit on "meet the press" where your guests are donald trump, bernie sanders, carly fiorina and ben carson. the fbi has been asked by russia to join the investigation into the plane crash over egypt. this as questions surface over whether the bags were properly checked before the doomed fltiight. bill neely is in sharm el-sheikh for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. this investigation is now focused on fractions of a second. the final seconds of that cockpit voice recording and the noise that points to an explosion. it's soundwaves may help unlock this mystery. and now, as you say, the fbi is getting involved. it's not unusual for the fbi to be asked to help in a disaster.
9:11 am
it is unusual for the russians to ask the fbi has said yes. though a spokesman told nbc news it's roll will be modest. russian teams have taken away 15 sacks of sand from the site and according to egypt, human remains for analysis. they are looking for evidence of a bomb. >> the number one most important thing is testing the residue of this airliner to try to see whether there's any kind of traces of explosives. >> reporter: investigators now know that time after takeoff when disaster struck. >> 23 minutes and 14 seconds. >> reporter: at that moment on the cockpit recorder, the cdr, something extraordinary. >> a noise was heard in the last seconds of the cdr recording. >> reporter: every fraction of that sudden noise will now be analyzed and compared with the sound of other crashes. investigators have found the plane's autopilot was on, suggesting the crew felt everything was normal until that moment.
9:12 am
some parts of the wreckikage, thceey've said, are still missing. they suggested that even a passenger's lithium batteries could have caused this. they are also examining reports that a baggage scanning machine was often broken. the baggage handlers weren't monitored. and the deliveries to the airport weren't properly searched. 11,000 russian tourists have now been evacuated from the airport in one day. it will take nearly a week to get them all out. in st. petersburg where most of the victims were from, the church bells tolled once for every victim, 224 times. and here the search goes on for those missing parts for the plane. bad weather hampering that search. it is now day eight. some new clues but still, craig, no solid answers. >> bell neely for us in egypt, thank you. in louisiana investigators are now looking at 911 calls connected to the chase that led
9:13 am
to the shooting death of a 6-year-old boy last week. two police officers are charged with killing the boy who was kiting in the front seat of his dad's car. and now there are reports that the deadly encounter may have started with a 911 call about a bar fight involving the boy's father. nbc's gabe gutierrez is on the scene. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the two officers are being held here without bail. the chase reportedly started after the father got into some sort of argument with his girlfriend in a local pool hall and someone called 911. but exactly what happened next is unclear. today we're hearing more about that young life cut short. this morning friends and family are membering 6-year-old jeremy martin. >> heartwrenching. your heart is burning because you don't know how to feel. >> miranda siegler was his baby sitter for four years and said he was autistic and full of life.
9:14 am
ever think of having around you. for a child to be so loving, it was just amazing in the most wonderful feeling you could ever experience. >> reporter: on tuesday night jeremy was buckled into the frfoont seat of his father's suv when he was shot five times and killed following a police chase in central louisiana. >> this is a wounded community. this is a wounded family value. >> reporter: officers derek stafford and norris green jr. are facing charges of murder and attempted murder. the boy's father was injured during the shooting and remains hospitalized in serious condition. stafford and greenhouse worked for the marksville police department, but that night they has been working side jobs for the city marshall's office. greenhouse is the son of a local prosecutor. investigators won't reveal exactly what led to the pursuit or what triggered the shooting. initially, the local coroner had said the officers were serving a warrant with state police now saying that wasn't the case.
9:15 am
there was no exchange of gunfire, they say, and no weapon was found inside his suv. video from the officer's body camera has not been leased publicly but the head of the louisiana state police called it extremely disturbing and said that it led to the arrests. >> this is a complex case with a lot of moving parts. >> reporter: they expect to have midweek. jeremy and his father have moved to louisiana within the past year. jeremy's visitation is scheduled for later today in mississippi. his funeral is set for tomorrow. >> so sad. gabe gutierrez, thank you. kristen welker is here with more on the streak of light out west that really got folks rattled. >> it really did. it looks like something out of the movies, right, guys? we begin with the serious bright light over the california sky that sent residents into the absolute panic. social media lit up and police were inundated with calls claiming it was everything from a ufo to a comet to a nuclear explosion.
