7:03 am
>> reporter: the show down at motown, coming down to hand to hand combat. >> are those smaet hands? he referred to my hands, they're small. something else must be small. i guarantee you, there's no problem. i guarantee you. >> reporter: donald trump ripping down his opponents to size. >> this little guy. >> reporter: hit from both sides but pivoting to the likely ponent this fall. >> thank you. >> reporter: i have not started on hillary yet. believe me, i will. >> reporter: making nice with the moderator. >> looking good, megyn. >> >> moving to the middle. >> i'm changing it and softening the position. >> reporter: marco rubio and ted cruz not softening their attacks on the front rumper's er
7:04 am
business dealers, like university. >> if we nominate donald, we'll spend the spring, summer with the nominee facing a fraud trial. >> oh, stop it. it's a minor case with hillary clinton saying, why didn't you give -- >> it's a minor case. >> he's trying to con the people into getting their vote like he conned these people. >> senator marco rubio is the real con artist. >> reporter: witreh only john kasich sticking to.an uplifting message. >> why don't we come together as a country, respect one another, love one another and lift the country? >> reporter: insisting he'll stay through the race through ohio. >> we're heading up north, to my turf. >> reporter: hour's arl tr, the 2012 nominee unleashed an unprecedented attack on the 2016 favorite. >> donald trump sa is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as
7:05 am
>> reporter: undercutting his key credential. >> you say, wait, isn't he a huge business success? nobody is talking about it. no, he isn't. >> reporter: the stop trump movement may have been stopped in its tracks with trump's vals all pledging to back him if he's the nomine even as they continue to challenge trump. >> donald has a tenuous relationship with the truth. >> that is not what you said in the op-ed. >> donald, i know it's hard to not interrupt but try. broout, breathe, breathe. >> when they're done with the yo ,than i answer a question? >> you cannot. >> i hope we don't sio ga ee yoga on the stage. >> he's very flexible. never know. >> t next super tuesday is march 15th and we'll likely learn whether donald trump will be able to secure the nomination or if the republican race is headed to a contested
7:06 am
that is a scenario mitt romney seemed to push for, urging people to support cruz and kasich. nobody could stop party leader's name. exclusively. than you for joining us. >> thank you, matt. >> you are either a trader who proves that the establishment of the republican party is so afraid they can't control donald trump, that they'll do anything to stop it, or you're a hero who has finally put the race into perspective. to the people who think you're a hero, they're asking a question, and that is, why did you wait so long? tell me about the timing. >> well, i've wanted to be involved in the campaign, if you will, as a bit of a referee. when there were some foul balls, be able to call them and see if i can't keep people guided on the path to becoming our next president. but the time came when donald
7:07 am
a level that i simply had to speech out. you get to the point where you say, your grandkids will say to you, papa, what did you do to stop donald trump? i had tooset out and speech. >> experts are calling this a unprecedented event in modern political history in this untry. a former nominee of a party, in a scathing takedown of the favorite to be the next nominee. this isn't a typical front runner. he's survived moments in this campaign that would have derailed anybody else. do you think your speech will matter? >> i don't know if it will or not. but i know i couldn't stand silent anymore. you can't have anyone whose policies are so far from the views of my party become our nominee. and someone who has demonstrated over time he doesn't have the temperament or the personal qualities to be a great president. >> you said he's dangerous for the country, for working americans. you attacked him on his economic policies, foreign policies,
7:08 am
third grade antics. here's a quote. you say, isn't he a huge business success that knows what he's talking about? no, he isn't. no, he doesn't. bankruptcies crushed small businesses and the men and women who worked for them. he inherited his business. he didn't create it. i'll take you back four years. listen to this. >> donald trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works, to create jobs for the american people. i spent my life in the private sector, not as successful as this guy, but successful nonetheless. >> that was four years ago, donald trump and mitt romney. >> he's made a lot of money but hasn't been uniformly successful and is far from a genius. trump mortgage. trump university. trump vitamin company. one after the other, failure after failure. just because he's made a lot of money, one, you don't measure your life on how much money
7:09 am
his economic policies are right for america. >> the people that are angry at you this morning, governor romney, are saying, wait a second, he willingly welcomed the endorsement of donald trump, though he was knee-deep in the berther movement and made other comments. why go 180 degrees on the guy now? >> i was seeking his endorsement and now he's seeking mine. a lot of people that endorse me, i wouldn't endorse for president. a lot has happened in the last year. had i heard him say the things i had now, i wouldn't have welcomed his endorsement. when he calls george w. bush a liar. when he says putin is a strong and powerful leader, popular with his lead people. when he attacked a reporter. when he talks about women that way. >> did you beg him for his endorsement four years ago? >> i was happy to have his endorsement.
7:10 am
could possibly have. when it comes to who i would support for president, there are folks who endorse me that i wouldn't want to see as president. >> you said if the other candidates can find common ground, i believe we can find a person who can win the general election and who will represent the values of the party. given the process, this means i would vote for marco rubio in florida. for john kasich in ohio. and for ted cruz or which ever of the contenders has the best chance for beating trump in other states. >> you're calling for a suppress donald trump movement that will lead to cleveland and a convention. >> i'm going to do everything we can to make sure we don't nominate donald trump. i don't think he would be fit or has the temperament to be president. i want to see one of the other threeyto be the nominee.adafter march 15th, i think you'll
7:11 am
contenders opposing donald trump and i ntend to support one of them. >> leading up, you want marco rubio and ted cruz to back up and led john kasich win ohio el. do you want them to back off to let rubio win florida? if we get to cleveland and a cousntested convention, how do the million of voters, some of whom haerve come to the process of the party for the first tim because of donald trump, how will they feel to have the establishment wiiang of the party pull the rug out from under it? >> a lot of people, establishment or not, agree with me that donald trump should not be president of the united states and don't want to see him become the republican nominee. now, it's about 65% of republicans who would like someone else. that's the way politics works. you fight for the people you support. the person who wins through the process is your nominee. >> you didn't endorse anybody yesterday. that's angered people.
7:12 am
why didn't you endorse? >> three people on the stage endorsed me and are friends. actually four, including trump. is he a friend of yours? t.>> we get along. i doubt we'll spend a lot of time together now, but we're going to see on march 15th, i think, a narrowing of the field. a that point, i wouldn't be surprised if i endorse one of the guys. >> not endorsing someone now, governor, have you left the door open just wide enough for you to ride through it on a white horse? do you want to be considered as an alternative to save this party if it gets down to a contested convention in july? >> no, no. the people who can save this party are ted cruz, marco rubio or john kasich. we're going to get a sense within a few days of who that person might be. i'm going to be supporting that person and doing everything i can to make sure they become the nominee of the party. >> i'm going to be a little stubborn on this. under any circumstances, governor, if large numbers of people in the establishment wing
7:13 am
say and say, mitt, you can save the day, under any circumstances, would you be a part of this presidential race as a candidate? >> there are no circumstances i can foresee where that would possibly happen. let me say something else. >> i can foresee. >> no reasonable scenario i can imagine. >> just slam the door on it. close the door. unammious biguous unambiguous, i will not run for president. >> i won't run for president. there are mainstream republicans who believe in conservative values. whether established or not, people around the political world have watched what's going on. what's happening with donald trump, people are angry, as they should be, but he's channelling the anger in a way that won't help americans. we need to create good jobs for the american people. >> the tone of the race. candidates call each other losers, liars, sweaters, chokers. they've made of each other's appearance, the size of their
7:14 am
you read between the lines. is there one person running on the republican side, in your opinion, who has been the biggest adult and the most presidential? >> well, it's very clear to point to the person who has been thoue smallest adult, and that's donald trump. he's taken -- >> how about the other way? >> i'll go both ways. personal attributes and made fun of people throughout the campaign. some of phe candidates say, i have to return fire. last night he pointed a marco rubio saying little marco. little marco. this is a new low in presidential politics. it's wrong. i think john kasich is saying, i'm not going to do that. recognize that if ou want to become the nominee, you've got toiz prosecute the opposition as well as lift yourself. >> would you vote for hillary clinton or sit out voting as opposed to voting for donald trump? >> well, i wouldn't vote for donald trump, and i wouldn't vote for hillary clinton. i intend to vote for our nominee
7:15 am
a real conservative and republican. >> mitt romney, i appreciate you coming in this morning. >> thank you, matt. good to be with you. >> let's go to savannah. >> i have nicolle wallace, a communications director for george w. bush. >> governor romney made this speech. we've heard him a few minutes ago. if you don't like donal trump, i imagine it was ka that are r great to hear that. do you think it was persuasive to someone who does support trump? >> a piece was in the wall street journ about how the republican party is broken. the establishment split with the base of our rty. she makab the point that you can get a new establishment. you cannot get new base of the party. we are at a moment where, i think, it's very perilous to indict the wishes and now the choice of hundreds of thousands of republican primary goers. it was a brave speech, to go out and make a speech like that
7:16 am
vote and to be against someone without somebody for someone takes political courage. romney is respected by many republicans. i think he was maybe speaking to the decided. the people decided they comld never support tru ke will be cheered by his words, but i don't think he got through to th people who are inspired and animated by trump. >> there are still a lot of voting left so we'll see how republican primary voters come down. no question donald trump is a front runner now. let's talk about the debate. does it move the needle? does it matter anymore? >> i don't think it reshuffles thete order of how the races willh come down. but we need a new rule. when there is eference to the size of body parts, they need to defer to johnskasich. talk about someone wating with their 12-year-old daughter, cringing through the whole thing. a party has to look at how we resource the elegance t ano the office.
7:17 am
a delegate in every time. t >> yeah. on the democratic side, upthere is new developments on clinton's e-mail controversy. the federal employee who helped manage clinton's server is now cooperating with the fbi now that he has immune ity immunity. brian pagliano has records that show no evidence of hacking. clinton's use of the private e-mail server during secretary of state has prompted an investigation into whether she and others in her administration mishandled classified information. snowing here in new york, a little, passing through. >> that's right. this will be a quick hitter. this is delaware, and there's a bit of snow but it's melting for the most part. there is slushy surfaces. we have school delays from the washington, d.c. area to the new york area. for the most pa , this will be a quick hitter. the radar, you can see rain along the coast.

7:30 am
7:30 now on this friday morning. it's the 4th of march, 2016. by the way, ten days from now, a huge concert in rockefeller plaza with one of the biggest bands in the world. coldplay is set to hit the stage monday, march 14 . st art making your plans to be on the plaza right now. public service announcement to our friends and family, don't call us. we'll call you. >> that's right. the phone starts ringing right around now. >> exactly.
7:31 am
look at the stories making adlines. millions of people are waking up to what could be the last winter storm of the season. rain and light snow from north carolina up to the northeast. going to get al's forecast just ahead. it was a fiery debate in detroit last night for the republican presidentiai candidates. cruz and rubio stepped up their efforts to take down the front runner trump. the big news, trump defending the size of his hands. he kept talking about them to nbc news in the post-debate room. >> the hands and -- >> see how beautiful my hands are? those are powerful hands. hit a golf club 285 yards. i was proud to hold my hands up. these are politicians. they say things and make things up. you know, you have to clear up the record. >> this morning, some are suggesting hillary clinton was the real winner of the debate. she sent out memes mocking her rivals. including one asking, how many
7:32 am
something else that came up at the debate. mitt romney's speech labeling trump as unfit for offer and a danger to the gop and the nation. mitt romney was with us in our atlast half hour and asked him why hehr waited so long to get involved in the race. >> i w anted to ae involved in the campaign, if you will, as a bit of a referee. when there were foul balls, be able to call them and see if i can keep people guided on the path to becoming our next president. the time came when donald trump's outrage had reached such a level that i simply had to speech out. >> romney said he'll do everything in normal political bounds to stop trump f m being nominanated. we have a lot to talk about with our next guest, senator ma herco rubio. good to see you, sir. >> a good morning. >> you really let donald trump have it, c lling him a con tist, calling him a fraud, saying he doesn't reall know much about foreign policy and
7:33 am
something happened at the end of the debate. you rose your hand and said, yes, if he's the nominee, you will support him. how do you square those things? >> i get that. it's the quandary we're in. we as republicans feel that hillary clinton would be a disaster to the country. that's how bad she is. i would look at that as a reflection of how bad she is, not as good trump is. that's what i want to avoid. i don't want us to nominee someone that people have to be asked this question about all the time. if this was anyone else, any other candidate that ran for president this year was in the position that trump is today, the question would not be coming up. there's a reason the question is asked. there is a significant percentage of people in our party that would never vote fo yor him. he's vulgar but also has no policy ideas. the ones he has outlined are either dangerous or un-serious. we're in a bad spot. >> when push came to shove, you said you'd go to the ballot box
7:34 am
>> yeah, i know. look, i'm not voting for hillary clinton. i get it. look, i understand your estion. it's not -- this is the tough spot i want us to avoid. i don't want us to have a nominee that people have to settle for or make excuses for why they voted. the only way to avoid that is unify around a campaign like mine, because i can bring the party together and grow it. we're not going to be able to do that under donald trump. we'll be asked this question in october. if this is the mood in october, we'll lose to hillary clinton. that's why he does poorly against her in the polling. >> mitt romney endorsed a strategy, not a candidate yesterday. he said, do anything to stop trump. rubio in florida. kasich in ohio. cruz anywhere you think he'll be the winner. is that your strategy too right now? are you saying, the best i'll be le to do at this point i get it to a contested convention, where we can settle it there?
7:35 am
look, my strategy is vot >e for me in florida but vote for me everywhere else, too. i want people to vote for me everywhere else. this is not about a contested election, per se. no one is aiming toward that. the reality of it if you look at the delegate masses, if things continue the way they are now, and they may not, but if they continue the way they are, it'll be hard for anyone on the ballot to get to 1,237 delegates. that doesn't mean a brokered convention. yoobu could have someone that really gains steam down the stretch here and has a large number of delegates and brings everyone together who agrees. this is anaunusual race. there's anxietytin the countr s donald trump has taken advantage of that to try to pull off the scam job, where he's portraying himself as something he's not. he's injected a level of vulgar vulgarness into the campaign that we've never seen before. >> in the debate last night, there was a lot of talk about the size of hands and what that correlates to. i know donald trump is no
7:36 am
all, in fairgess, senator rubio, you are the one who introduced this particular insult into our political discourse. are you sorry you went there? >> oh, please, donald trump has spent a year doing this on a regular basis. in fact, there is not a speech or debate that donald trump does that he doesn't personally offend or try to offend somebody. i said something o time to a guy weo needs to be stood up to. the way, in response to an attack against me. i didn't do it last night. lai didn't do it repeatedly. it happened one time because the guy is a rhetorical bully. he mocks the disabled, makes fun of minorities and women, makes n of journalists, his other candidates. even last night, he was asked about foreign policy. his esponse was a personal attack against me. is is going to be the nominee of the republican party and the president of the united states? i mean, what we has done, he's turned the most important election in a generation into a circus and a freak show.
7:37 am
continue to work for that to end. >>u senator bio, can hear it in your voice, late night, early morning, thank you for your time. wet. appreciate zblit it. >> thank you. >> all these guys must be tinod. it's a long process. let's get a check of the weather from al. >> announcer: today's weather is brought to you by edward jones. where attention and sound advice is a big deal. >> we're looking for a change in our republican sit our temperature situation that may spell the end of the winter storm. chilly over the northeast and great lakes. today, temperatures will be 5 to 15 degrees below average from jacksonville up to chicago and out to new york and into new england. saturday, the warm air is coming. one more day of cooler than normal temperatures in the northeast. 5 to 15 above averagepilln to the east. by sunday, cleveland is up to 45 .

nday, new york city, 58. 67 i louisville. as we get further into the week, we'll be looking at warmer temperatures into the northeast and mid-atlantic thanks, al. good morning, everyone. tracking that light snow in the city. you can see on storm tracker, some heavier snow off to the south, so middlesex, monmouth, and ocean counties, watch out >> for slick s ots this morning. north of town, not too much in the hudson valley, maybe a few flurries. that's really just about it. a coating to 2 inches possible, the 2 inches most likely to be in monmouth and ocean counties as we head throughout the morning. everything winds down through the afternoon. today's high temperature, 39 degrees. it's windy through the rest of the day, chilly. 40s for the weekend. >> that' your latest weather. matt? >>m al, thank you very much. closing arguments getting underway this morning in the $75 million lawsuit brought by sp dorts reporter erin andrews er the leaked video secretly recorded at a nashville hotel. morgan radford has been covering
7:39 am
good morning. >> good morning, matt. thoe jury could get this case as early as today, at which point, they have to decide whether, in fact, the hotel shares the blame for the secretly recorded stalker video, to whether andrews has suffered and, three, whether it was worth a potential $75 million. >> reporter: today, the last chance or erin andrews' legal team to convince the jury that her stalker video left her emotionally damaged. >> erin andrews has suffered and continues to suffer serious mental injury and horrible mental anguish and emotional distress. >> reporter: the defense argues if that is the case, it hasn't hurt her career. >> would you agree with me that her career is not -- now thriving? >> yes. >> reporter: jesse palmer testified by video, so the defense could try to prove that andrews hasn't been so damaged
7:40 am
>> how does she rate, as far as the various sideline reporters you've worked with in your career, among the best? >> yes. >> if not the best? >> yes. >> that was true before the incident in 2009? >> yes. >> how about after the incident? >> yes. >> reporter: that's why the defense says the hotel shouldn't have to pay. >> emotional stress without physical injury cannot state a claim. >> reporter: especially, they argue, since the front desk clerk who checked in andrews' stalker, michael barrett, says she didn't give him andrews' rook number. >> i would not give that information out. >> reporter: andrews' lawyers say the hotel gave out the rook number, allowing barrett to shoot the video. something andrews s s she will never get over. si know i'm not fine. i think about it every day. >> the jury is giv gidlines s guridelines how to asses a emotional damage but it doesn't mean they have to award anything at all. >> thank you.

9:04 am
uld say, oh, my gosh. but, i mean, these are the people, the last men standing, since carly is out, no women on the gop side, running for president. mitt romney has been, you know, the former nominee, and spoke this mo ing. >> i feel like we're one debate ay from whoopee cushions being put on seats. >> that might happen next. >> oh, my gosh. >> i don't understand how the country can allow this to ntinue. you let your kids watch the detrbates, you know, you want them to understand the -- what goes into the process of electing a president. they can't watch this debate because it ends up in a round of bullying, child-like behavior wi hth name calling and everything you teach your kids not to do. >> it also resulted in thousands more people going to vote. i mean, listen, the republican
9:05 am
we've been out on the campaign trail. ople have been, you know, leaving work, suspending errands to go vote. you look at the debate, but a record number of people are turning out to caucus and to vote in primaries because of this. >> you knowswhat's interesting, t had a graphic up a couple days ago, where in 2008, for the hugedoturnout obama brought on the democratic side, the flip has happened this year. untold story. tons and tons of people are coming out, partly because of donald trump, or largely, i'd argue. trump and cruz were having a heated diskis> cussion about the supreme court nominating process when senator cruz interrupted m. let me point out -- >> that is not what you said in the op-ed. >> donald, i know it's hard not toth interrupt but try. >> it's not what you said. >> t breathe, breathe. >> you can breathe. i know it's hard.
9:06 am
can i answer a question? >> you cannot. i really hope that we don't see yoga on the stage. >> he's very flexible so you never know. >> the moderators of fox, they did a good job prosecuting substantive cases and putting snatats up and askingde questions. it lways seemed to die go to those moments. rubio calling trump a con man, dangerous, the last question of the evening, candidates were asked if they'd support donald trump as the nominee. >> i'll support the republican nomine >> mr. trump, yes or no? >> i'll support donald to be the republican nominee. >> yes because i gave my word i would. fat i heve endeavored to do every day in the senate is do what i said i'd do. >> he'd be the nominee, sometimes he makes it hard but, you know, i will support whoever is the republican nominee for president. >> the answer is yes, i will.
9:07 am
nominee of the party? >> yes. >> the top of trump said, if i'm not the nominee, it's not going to happen. but for people watching at home dand people across the country, you listen to the campaign and people saying, donald trump will ruin this country if he's made president. >> the world. >> then they say, i'll support the guy. >> i tweeted last night and said, this is why people hat politics. i don't throw the word "hate" around. but when you tell the american people this person is dangerous for the country, but then an hour later say, yeah, i'm going to vote, you have to ask yourself, which is more important? your party and an hofficial promise or pledge or your country, or are you playing us? this is applicahie not just to the republican party. this can be applied to the democratic side. maybe not this cycle. doesn't match what we're seeing but, nevertheless, is it party or country? what are you doing here? that's the question.
9:08 am
in some part. yesterday, mr. romney gave a speech in which he laid out a scathing indictment of donald trump. this morning, romney and matt sat down in the studio and governor romney was asked about accepting trump's endorsement four year ago, when he was the gop candidate. take a listen. >> you said he's dangerous for the country, dangerous for working americans. you attacked him on his economic policies, foreign policy, personality, which you called his third grade antics. his business acumen. you say, wait, isn't he a huge business success that knows what he's talking a about the? no, he isn't. no, he doesn't. his bankruptcies have crushed small businesses and the men and women who work for them. he inherited his bu thsiness. he didn't create it. let me take you back four years. listen to this. >> donald trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works, to create jobs for the american people.
9:09 am
sector, not quite as successful as this guy, but successful nonetheless. >> that was four years ago, same two guys. donald trump and mitt romney. >> he's a successful guy. made a lot of money. but hes?asn't een uniformly successful and is far from a business genius. trump university, trump stakes, trump mortgage, trump vitamin company. one after the other, failure after failure. just because he's made a lot of money, one, you don't measure you life by how much money you make, but it doesn't mean his economic policies are right for america. >> but the people angry at you this morning, governor, are saying, wait a minute, he willingly welcomed the endorsement of d ald trump four years ago, even though he was knee deep in the birther s movement and made other comments. why go 180 degrees on the guy now? >> i was seeking his endorsement. now he's s king mine. that's different. a lot of people endorsed me, i wouldn't endorse for president. secondly, a lot has happened in the last year.
9:10 am
things i've heard him say now, i wouldn't have welcomed his endorsement. >> i mean, this is, again, why people don't like politics. feels cynical, to flip that way. the only thing in governor romney's defense i'll say, you can accept an endorsement, but it's something else to endorse somebody to be president of the unthited states. tr tump was a businessman at this point. now he wants to lead the country. romney thinks it's his obligation to prevent it. >> legit point. but the thing that matt brought up, at that time, donald trump was full birther. and .ad claimed that heasent people off to hawaii. they found all this incredible stuff he's never revealed publicly. we'll see. i mean, voters are speaking out. ultimately, that's democracy. >> it's true. >> can we talk about something happy? >> yes! >> not that pol ics isn't happy but -- >> well, something our viewers have contriboted to. >> right. pehople have spoken.
9:11 am
