7:03 am
with this arranged marriage hours old. >> a new relationship has started, cruz and carl y. what's he doing picking vice presidents? he can't win. he can't win. >> reporter: now fresh off a speech. >> vice president of the united states, carly feorina. >> desperate attempt to resurrect his candidacy, bold move announced in indiana, in the hoosier state where fiorina could attract women and where the former packed ceo launched her career. after tough talk about cruz months ago. >> he says whatever he needs to say to get elected. >> reporter: on stage she serenaded his daughters.

7:05 am
it has been a complete and total disaster. >> donald trump vowed to shake the rust off america's foreign policy, largely preaching restraint and several experts criticized his speech, the chairman of the foreign policy praised it as a step in the right direction. >> peter, thank you. let's talk now to donald trump about this. he is on the phone. good morning. >> good morning. >> ted cruz says carly fiorina is his running mate if he gets the nomination. gets headlines. you on the other hand seem to say things that alienate women voters. you say hillary clinton is still ail playing the woman card and if
7:06 am
have 2% of the vote. >> nobody respects women more than i do. i am not playing the woman's card. she's playing the woman's card. everything she says is about the woman's card. frankly all i'm doing is stating the obvious. without the woman's card she wouldn't even be -- >> are you saying women in this country vote simply on gender? >> i don't think they vote on gender, no. i think they vote for jobs and security. that's why i'm doing so well, that's why i'm leading the republicans a lot. in all the elections i won on tuesday night, which is five states. and then, of course, new york the week before. i'm winning them one after another now and building up tremendous numbers and tremendous numbers of delegates and millions and millions of voters. in all of those exit polls, i led with women and i led with women by tremendous margins overall other candidates. >> but, mr. trump, for you to
7:07 am
would be getting 5% suggests the only thing she has going for her is that she was a woman, not that she was a former senator, former secretary of state and lawyer. do you understand why people find that to be kind of a demeaning comment? >> nochlt i . i find it to be a true comment. the only thing she has got going is she's a woman. she has done a terrible job in so many ways. look at libya. look at some of the things that she's done that are absolutely disaster russ. no disastrous. the primary thing she has going is that she's a woman. she's playing that card like i've not seen anybody play it before. >> let me ask you about your foreign policy speech yesterday, mr. trump. what's very interesting is what was not in the speech. you didn't talk about the wall with mexico. you didn't talk about supporting 11 million undocumented immigrants. you didn't talk about restoring torture. you didn't talk about possibly allowing japan, south korea or
7:08 am
weapons. are you backing off some of the key tenents? >> no, not at all. i'll be doing a big speech on immigration and i'll talk more about that in the form of immigration, the wall, undocumented immigrants having to be brought out of the country. we will do that. it's never been a worse situation than we have right now. you look at the crime. you look at the tremendous impact they have on our country economically. you look at what's coming across the border. i consider that immigration as opposed to foreign policy. and i'm going to be doing a policy speech on immigration fairly soon. >> let's talk about isis. you said in your speech yesterday that they will be gone very quickly in a trump administration. so, can you be more specific? are you envisioning a massive ground troop presence in syria
7:09 am
it seems that would be necessary if you want to get rid of them quickly. >> well, one of the tenets of my speech yesterday -- it's gotten great reviews, as you know, was unpredictability. >> people are casting votes. they should know whether that means a massive military presence in the middle east. >> savannah, if i get elected president, i don't want isis to know what i'm going to be doing. >> what about the american voters? >> i don't like the idea. and psychologically, we need to -- and as a country, we need to -- when president obama announced we're sending 250 soldiers, when he announced previous to that, we're sending 50 soldiers and he announces it to the world, they have a target on their back. he shouldn't be announcing that. he shouldn't be talking about what he's doing militarily. the enemy is watching every move we say, every move we do militarily, we announce what we're doing and they prepare for it. i don't want that. one of the big tenets of my speech yesterday was the fact
7:10 am
strongly -- we need unpredictability. we need to be unpredictable. we're so totally predictable, matt. >> some american voters might be nervous that this call for unpredictability is actually a way of masking an understanding of the issues or grasp of the details. >> well, i have a total grasp of the details far greater than just about anybody else. that, i can tell you. when i said take the oil -- i've been saying it for a long time -- i didn't want to tell that. but yourselves and everybody else has been saying tell us what it is. tell us what it is. after three months i said take the oil. now i would have preferred not doing that. politically, i really had to. it got to the point where people had to know. i would have preferred not saying take the oil. you go in, you surprise them. now fortified oil reserves and they're prepared. we'll still take the oil and we should be taking the oil and we're not. >> would you rule out the use of
7:11 am
>> i don't want to rule out anything. i will be the last to use nuclear weapons. it's a horror to use nuclear weapons. the power of weaponry today is the single greatest problem that our world has. it's not global warming, like our president said. it's the power of weapons, in particular nuclear. i will be the last to use it. i will not be a happy trigger like some people might be. i will be the last. but i will never, ever rule it out. >> donald trump. >> thank you very much. got to leave it there. appreciate it. >> thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. on the democratic side, big changes for bernie sanders and his campaign. it's now laying off more than 200 staffers. the move comes after sanders lost all but one democratic primary in five states on tuesday. the campaign had more than 1,000 staffers in late january. now it will have no more than 350. a spokesperson downplayed the layoff saying with only ten states to go, they needed fewer
7:12 am
taken place regardless of tuesday's outcome. more severe weather expected today after more than a dozen tornadoes reportedly touched down in several states wednesday. dylan is here, tracking it for us. what's in store for today? >> today won't be as bad. take a look at some of the video in evansville, indiana, 1.66" of rainfall in a very short period of time. they tried to close the roads but cars and trucks were getting stuck in the floodwaters. luckily, the drivers did get out safely. it was a mess yesterday with the heavy rain. moving to missouri, we had a huge super cell. look at the size of this developing storm. this actually was in northeastern missouri. it went on to produce a tornado. you can see it growing in the early stages there. a lot of wind damage to the church there and a lot of tree damage as well. today, we're not going to see storms as widespread. we are looking for a possibility
7:13 am
especially in north carolina later on today, as this starts to move eastward. we're going to get a bit of a break today. everything will ramp up again tomorrow. here is this area of low pressure, producing heavy rain through parts of the appalachians. we're looking at isolated stronger storms to produce wind gusts and large hail. this will move eastward. it gets unsettled as we go into friday. we'll see a chance of scattered showers and storms produce perhaps up to 2 to 3" of rain in a short period of time. again it's not a ton of rain. when it all falls very quickly, that can lead to flash flood nth ing in the carolinas today. >> all right. dylan, thank you very much. dramatic fall from grace of the former speaker of the house, den nis has dennis hastert.
7:14 am
his alleged abuse against students. stephanie gosk has the details. >> reporter: asking for probation, that their client had been punished enough. but the judge came down hard. once beloved speaker of the house dennis hastert, federal judge repeatedly called him a serial child molester before sentencing him to 15 months in a federal prison and two years of supervised release for illegally withdrawing large amounts of cash, $1.7 million in hush money to pay a man who says he was 14 years old when hastert, the coach of the his wrestling team, abused him in a motel room. multiple mol sex sexual molestation crimes are too old to be prosecuted but the judge said
7:15 am
matter how old it is. the sister of the victim first confronted him in 1995. >> what did he say? >> nothing. that was my confirmation. he said nothing. >> what was the look on his face? >> stone face, no emotion. >> scott cross now 53 years old, told the court he was abused, too. at times, breaking down, describing my darkest secret. hastert, who is in poor health, and spent much of the hearing in a wheelchair, apologized to his victims. they looked up to me and i took advantage of them. the judge had little sympathy for the former speaker's fall from grace. saying if there's public shaming of the defendant because of the conduct he has engaged in, so be it. he ended the sentencing by calling it a horrible case, horrible for the defendant, horrible for the victim s s, horrible for the country. then he added i hope i never see a case like this again. authorities have yet to determine where hastert will be
7:16 am
will he have to enter a sex tlfender program. matt, savannah? >> stephanie gosk in chicago, thank you. scary moments in the air wednesday for passengers on board a plane from seattle to dallas. a bird strike caused the plane to head back to seattle shortly after takeoff. tom costello covers aviation for us. good morning. >> good morning. the nose of the aircraft is also called the radar dome. it houses the weather radar, which provides information to the cockpit crew. bird strikes happen weekly, sometimes daily. you don't want to fly the plane if there's any chance that your weather radar antenna has been damaged. >> watching this american airlines flight make an emergency landing back at sea-tac. >> tense moments captured on live television, our nbc affiliate covering this american airlines flight as it was forced to land shortly after takeoff, after a bird strike. >> looks like we hit some birds on takeoff. we're going to need to go back
7:17 am
>> 126 passengers and six crew members were on board headed from seattle to dallas when one or possibly several birds struck the nose of the plane. less than an hour later, the aircraft landed safely back at sea-tac and taxied to the gate. severe damage across the nose, a dent stretching nearly two feet. >> do you need your nose gear inspected by your company on the runway or can the airport ops do it off the runway? >> reporter: no injuries reported and maintenance teams are now evaluating the aircraft before it flies again. looks like a big bird. airline crew also take the remains of the bird, feathers, bone fragments and send in to the smithsonian here in washington where they will match to determine what type of bird was involved. that should tell the airport what steps they need to take to limit that type of bird activity anywhere near the air field. back to you. >> tom, thank you. another incident in the air. this one, involving a jetblue
7:18 am
dennis miv jr. faced a judge wednesday. he was arrested last week after flying 151 passengers from orlando to new york. it was the second flight of the day. murphy was selected for a random alcohol test. police say he was over the limit. he blamed the reading on the gum he was chewing. jetblue says it has a zero tolerance drug and alcohol policy, murphy no longer employed with that airline. let's turn back to dylan and get the rest of her forecast. >> we talked about storms in the carolinas. we'll see storms later tonight in oklahoma and texas, and snow still falling out in the rockies, above 9,000 feet. up wards of a foot snow. that's a look at the weather

7:32 am
this happened in alabama. witnesses say the pilot was able to walk away from this whole thing. we don't yet know what caused that crash. also this morning, new details in the investigation into the death of pop star prince. local authorities are now asking for federal help after they discovered prescription drugs. nbc's joe friar has more on all of this. joe, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. federal law enforcement officials tell nbc news prescription painkillers were found in prince's possession when he died and in his house. now officials say the drug enforcement administration is part of the investigation into the musician's death. a week has passed since prince's body was discovered inside paisley park now. federal law enforcement officials say the carver county sheriff is asking the dea for help, what prescriptions prince had obtained and where the medication came from. >> if there was a pharmaceutical
7:33 am
him medications and prescribing an enormous amount that resulted in his death, that would be another investigation. >> reporter: officials have not said what role, if any, pain killers played in prince's death. autopsy took place last week but the medical examiner is still awaiting results of toxicology tests. some of the artist's friends have said years of high-energy entertaining, sometimes in high heels, took a toll on prince's hips and that he was in pain. minnesota attorney michael patton represented two of prince's half siblings, lorna and dwayne nelson. both siblings have died but more than a decade ago, they told him he took the opioid painkiller percocet to enhance his stage performance. >> they told me for several reasons, primarily because they were concerned about their brother's health. that was the primary reason. they both felt that because of that use that it would affect his life expectancy. >> reporter: he admits the
7:34 am
he representtd dwayne in a lawsuit against prince after dwayne was fired by the musician. lorna once sued prince claiming copyright infringement. he shared what the siblings told him with investigators. we reached out to authorities but have not heard back. some of prince's closest friends have told nbc news they never saw the artist use pain killers. >> prince lived a very healthy life, a vegan. he certainly had no addictions that we were worried about. >> it will likely be weeks before investigators release any information about how prince died. a judge has ordered a bank to oversee the estate for now. prince's sister says it appears he did not have a l savannah? >> joe fryer, thank you. murder of a popular fitness instructor inside a texas church. police have executed a search warrant at a dry cleaners after a blood-stained shirt was
7:35 am
nbc's kerry sanders has been following this case closely. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the bloody woman's shirt was taken to a dry cleaners by missy bevers' father-in-law. while it may look suspicious, her in-laws say there is an innocent explanation. police came to this dry cleaner's super center after a call from a clerk, shirts that appear to have blood stains on them were dropped off by randy bevers, who is the father-in-law of the d ecedennt in this murder investigation. randy bevers told the dry cleaners the shirt had animal blood on it. copy of the dry cleaning ticket clearly states animal blood all
7:36 am
bevers' husband said it came from a dog killed by another dog. >> carrying the dog from the house to the veterinarian clinic, okay, it was bloody. >> step mother-in-law, vicki bevers says she cradled kilo in her arms. >> the injury was on this side of his neck so it was against my chest. i wasn't aware until i handed him over that i had gotten blood on the shirt. >> reporter: police still looking to identify the suspect dressed in tactical gear say they're following every lead in the case. the blood on the shirt, they say, created quite a buzz. police say please be patient and understand we are not in a position to provide an official response to each step of this investigation. before the search warrant was unsealed, missy's sister-in-law, christy stout, told me she's aware in unsolved murders the husband is often considered the
7:37 am
>> there's no way my >> s brother did this. he loved her. he could never do something like this to cause pain on his children. >> reporter: her brother, missy's husband, brandon, does have a strong alibi. he was on a long-planned fishing trip in mississippi with friends. meantime this dog attack is something that the family talked to me last week about off camera. at the time it was nothing but a simple, unfortunate accident. now with the bloody shirt, until the crime lab is able to extract the blood from the shirt and run a dna test, it remains part of the investigation. savannah? >> that's understandable. kerry sanders, thank you. let us get a check of the weather now from dylan, who is in for al. >> announcer: "today's" weather is brought to you by kay jewelers, the number one jewelry store in america. every kiss begins with kay. it was an interesting day in california yesterday, of all places. look at this hail that came down
