tournament at madison square garden. they came to play, literally and figuratively. we'll get out there later in the show. let's start this friday morning with the presidential race and the surprising display of civility at the republican's final debate before next tuesday's high stakes primaries. it was a striking turn around from their 11 previous clashes. we have complete coverage, including a new controversy for donald trump. let start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. good morning. >> hey, matt and tamron, good morning. it was a kinder, gentler gop on display last night, and may have been the last opportunity for most marco rubio and john kasich. big week ace heads ahead in their home states. no lying ted or little marco. >> reporter: for the republicans, the 12th time is the charm. >> i cannot believe how civil it's been up here. >> reporter: finally, a substantive battle over
7:03 am
policy. following his controversial comment that islam hates the west, donald trump refused to back down when asked if he meant all muslims. >> i mean a lot of them. i mean a lot of them. i don't want to be politically correct. i like to solve problems. we have a serious, serious problem. >> reporter: his challengers looking to capitalize. >> i'm not interested in being politically correct, but being correct. looking at the challenging we face, we have to work together with muslims who are not radicals. >> the answer is not simply to yell, china, bad, muslims, bad. you have to understand the nature of the threats we're facing. >> reporter: donald striking a conciliatory tone. >> we're all in this together. i think i'll have the delegates. >> reporter: even writing off kasich and rubio's chances. >> there are two of us that can, and there are two that can't. >> we have beaten donald in
7:04 am
>> i listen and watch television when ted speaks. he said, i'm the only one that beat donald in contests but i beat him in 13. he never mentions that. >> let's not get ahead of ourselves. >> reporter: try telling that to trump. >> i beat hillary in many polls that have been taken, and each week, i get better and better. believe me, i haven't even started on her yet. >> reporter: but that's not really true. clinton has beaten trump head to head in all but three polls since last november. cruz squeezing in a last shot. >> incredible nation we have that the son of a bartender, mailman, dishwasher and a successful businessman can all stand on this stage. >> donald trump is expected to pick up another endorsement today. the former presidential candidate ben carson will back
7:05 am
as authentic and an outsider. >> peter alexander, thank you. another issue brought up at the debate, the violence we've seen at donald trump's recent campaign events, including this one in north carolina, where a man sucker punched a protester. nbc's hallie jackson has that part of the story. good morning. >> good morning to you. this morning, donald trump is on defense. not just about his rallies, but about accusations his campaign manager roughed up a reporter. overnight, trump is standing by his top aide with concerns growing about the tone of his campaign events. >> reporter: it's this shot caught on camera that has donald trump facing new fire. you can see the supporter, the 78-year-old mcgraw, sucker punches a protester at a rally, saying -- >> he deserved it. the next time we see him, we might have to kill him. >> reporter: mcgraw later arrested for assault. the protester, 26-year-old
7:06 am
>> as soon as i turned, he hit me dead in the eye. >> reporter: trump addressed the issue head on in last night's debate. >> i do not condone that at all, jake. >> reporter: trump's campaign telling nbc news, we are not involved in the incident and it takes significant measures to ensure the safety of all attendees. at the often wild rallies, trump said this -- >> you know what would happen at prior rallies like this? taken out on a stretcher. we have protesters that are bad dudes. they've done bad things. they are swinging. they are really dangerous. >> reporter: now, new questions about what happened between a reporter for conservative website and crump's campaign
7:07 am
audio witnessed by a "washington post" reporter. >> you okay? >> holly [ bleep ]. >> reporter: tweeting a picture of her bruises telling abc news -- >> it's hurtful. nobody wants to be touch and had violated like that. >> reporter: trump standing behind his campaign manager. >> i have secret service all over, cameras all over, nobody saw it happened and nobody complained. i know this guy, and he's a fantastic guy. >> reporter: questioning the reporter's account. >> i wasn't involved but the secret service was surrounding everybody and they said nothing happened. perhaps she made the story up. i think that's what happened. >> new this morning, trump's campaign manager, is again accusing fields of making it all up. in a tweet, calling her delusional and claiming not only has he never touched her, he's never even met her. matt and tamron? >> hallie, thank you.
7:08 am
political director and moderator of "meet the press." he's in ohio ahead of tuesday's critical contest. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> i want to talk about the alleged altercation in a second, but let's start with last night's debate. a week or so ago, there was a republican debate that looked like wrestle mania. la nht lke like woodstock. who benefitted most from the civil tone? >> well, what happened was if you looked at our polling and everybody else's polling in that week, marco rubio's personal ratings took a nosedive. ted cruz saw his ratings go down. donald trump was even hurt by this. individually, and the only guy that benefitted in the last week had been john kasich. individually, i understood why marco rubio laid off. why ted cruz laid off. obviously, this worked for kasich. matt, i have to say, i have stunned because this race, donald trump is four days away from putting this race away. to see cruz and rubio just sort of take a pass -- again, i get
7:09 am
it's been working for him. but the other two, while i understand they didn't want to go in the gutter, they sort of -- they may have overcorrected here. >> rubio, they say this is his primary. did he do anything, in your opinion, that would help hurt his fortunes around? >> i don't know. i question whether any of the debates are going to have any impact on trump. it's not about him. i think marco rubio did fine. it was whether -- did anything happen with trump where he would come down? that's what rubio has to do. he has a lot of ground to make up. it's not just him getting to 35. he has to bring trump down. that's what i didn't see last night. i didn't see anything that trump did that made him come back to the pack. >> this issue of violence at some of the trump's rallies, the protester being punched, the alleged altercation between trump's campaign manager and this reporter, you know, did trump say what he had to say
7:10 am
isn't the only answer, chuck, i will not tolerate any violence at my events? >> not only is that the only answer, he needs to take it to another level. remember what john mccain did toward the end of the '08 campaign? the mccain-palin rallies were exciting, rowdy and a little over the line, a little on edge? mccain stepped up and calmed it down himself. the candidate himself, donald trump at these events, needs to not talk about punching people in the face, singling out the media the way he does. >> needs to set the tone. >> creating this hostile atmosphere. it is on him to calm things down. he can't -- he's not responsible for how people act. i understand that. but he can set a different tone. he's going to have to have a moment where he does that, like john mccain did. it helped mccain. i think it would politically help trump if he did it. that's the irony. it would be in his political
7:11 am
just in the safety of people that are there. >> chuck todd out in ohio, good luck and have a good weekend. >> thank you, sir. now to the relentless rain that soaked parts of the south this week, causing deaths and leading to widespread evacuations and even more rain is on the way. we'll get to dylan in a moment, but first, janet shamlian. >> the sheriff and national guard staged outside of a flooded neighborhood. this community reeling after three days of drenching rain. what officials are calling historic flooding. >> reporter: the rescues don't stop. life-threatening conditions everywhere, from memphis to mississippi. for residents of this flood- flood-ravaged region, it's likely to be days before they're allowed back to see how much
7:12 am
>> last time, it was two weeks. probably going to be longer than two weeks this time. >> reporter: some decided to ride it out and now admit they put themselves in serious danger. >> the water came so quick. you don't -- people don't understand that. i've learned a lesson. >> reporter: this is the work of the national guard. they're doing wellness checks in the gooded neighborhoods to make sure people who decided to stay are safe. national guard truck rs thes are the only way out in louisiana. each time a truck rolled through, stranded residents begged for a ride out. >> you have to wait a little longer, okay? >> reporter: you can drive for miles and it all looks like this. >> devastating. it's devastating. nothing you can do. keep going. >> reporter: tens of millions lost. >> i have two refrigerators floating around the kitchen. >> reporter: and possessions for which there is no price tag. >> it's my grandfather's bible, my mother's father's bible.
7:13 am
>> with the water reseeding in some neighborhoods, residents like that woman are able to take stock of what they can salvage. some cases, it's not very much. back to you. >> your heart goes out to these families. janet, thank you so much. >> dylan is in for al. what can the folks expect? >> unfortunately, more rain. there's going to be more like 12 inches coming. there are several rivers at major flood stage. the most ever had was 78 feet of water and is now at 53 feet of water. we are breaking records, as far as river levels are concerned. naturally, we have flood watches and flash flood warnings in effect in red. that's where we're seeing the significant flooding. with additional rainfall and for the time it takes all the water to stream into the rivers, we are going to see delayed
7:14 am
as we go through today, the rain will start to push east, we'll get a bit of a break. on saturday, more rain will streak in from the gulf of mexico. some of the pockets of rain could produce heavier downpours. even though we'll lose the threat of torrential rain for long periods of time, heavier downpours could be exacerbate the problem. the bulls eye will be near new orleans, along the coast of alabama and mississippi where we could end up with 10 to 12 inches of rain. >> thank you. on to former first lady nancy reagan. she'll be laid to rest in california today. among the invited dignitaries who will attend, at least one relative of every u.s. president since john f. kennedy. natalie is at the reagan presidential library in simi valley. good morning. >> good morning to you. the service is going to begin in a few hours. it has been meticulously planned for years by nancy reagan
7:15 am
it'll include classic hymns, readings from the bible and reflections from some of those closest to her. >> reporter: about 10,000 v,000 vip guests will be on hand. most selected by the first lady herself. eulogies will be delivered by former chief of staff james baker and tom brokaw, a close friend. her children will speak, as well. davis opened up about their complicated relationship and says she plans to speak about it honestly during the service. >> i have poignant memories in there that were loving. i do acknowledge that we had a challenging and sometimes contentious relationship, because it would be foolish not to acknowledge that. >> reporter: form erer canadian prime minister will read a letter from the president to mrs. reagan. other political figures include former presidents george w. bush
7:16 am
ladies michelle obama, laura bush and rosalyn carter. hillary clinton is confirmed to attend, but in her role as former first lady, not current presidential candidate. every detail of the service, says her daughter, planned by nancy reagan herself. from the flowers and the music to her final resting place. >> my mother would always -- when she came up here on the anniversary of my father's death, she'd said, now, what side am i going to be on? every time. >> now, as we've reported, president obama will not be attending. the first lady representing the white house instead. while some criticized that decision, it's not, in fact, that unusual. when he was in office himself, president reagan did not attend the funeral of truman. and there's no real formal protocol when it comes to first ladies' funerals. tamron and matt? >> natalie, thank you very much.
7:17 am
will anchor live coverage of the funeral on many of the nbc stations beginning at 2:00 p.m. eastern time. also this morning, new numbers on the zika virus. nearly 200 cases have been reported in the u.s., all of which are traced to travel abroad. the threat has alarmed health officials, who are asking congress to provide nearly $2 billion to fight the virus in latin america and help prevent it from spreading. some of that money would go to puerto rico, where the head of the cdc fears we could see hundreds of thousands of cases by the end of the year. capitol hill republicans are reluctant to grant the request, suggesting the use of the leftover funds for the ebola virus. canada's new prime minister justin trudeau honored at the first state dinner for a canadian leader in 20 years. it was the first to be attended by president obama's daughters. ron allen is at the white house for us. ron, they were the buzz of
7:18 am
>> indeed, tamron. dreamy is a word often heard to describe justin trudeau, a political rock star. even president obama seemed to take notice saying, it's been a long time since so many americans have been so excited to see a leader from north of the border. >> reporter: a glamorous evening. the president, the prime minister and their first ladies lighting up the white house. >> to the great alliance between the united states and canada. say what you want to say >> reporter: the young family stunned canada, with his victory last fall. former known as a boxer and drama teacher before politics. family business, his dad, one of the nation's most famous leaders. also honored in his day at the white house. now, they seem lost in a political bromance. i wish someone would look at me the way that trudeau looks at
