trump. he's facing new questions over his treatment of women and his taxes. and then president obama is waking wake i -- weighing in on the race. we'll begin with peter alexander. good morning. >> good monday morning. nearly two weeks after becoming his party's presumptive nominee, donald trump is on the defensive on several fronts after reports of his past behavior to women. a lukewarm evaluation from the nation's most powerful republican. attacks from the president. >> reporter: for donald trump, the hits keep oncoming. >> in politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue. >> reporter: president obama taking a shot without ever dropping trump's name. >> it's not cool to not know what you're talking about. >> reporter: trump is attacking his critics, dismissing the "new york times" as dishonest and lame, after its front page expose on his treatment of women. detailing unwanted advances and workplace conduct over decades. trump told one
executive, you like your candy. other employees praised the candidate. saying his decision to promote women was a daring move for a developer at the time. paul ryan refused to answer whether the presumptive nominee is someone his kids can look up to. >> i'm not interested in going to the past. >> reporter: this should not be a hard question. trump telling the "times," ryan wants me to be me. clinton's campaign is hammering trump over his refusal to release his taxes. >> if i run for office, i'll produce my tax returns, absolutely. >> i am officially running for president of the united states. >> reporter: even as nine gop house committee chairs are endorsing trump, many prominent republicans remain so repulsed, they're recruiting third party options. mitt romney recently contacting john kasich and nebraska senator
no chance. who can out trump trump? maybe another billionaire. mark cuban taking calls, acco according to the "washington post," but declining, saying there isn't enough time. in an interview with television this morning, trump is hitting back at david cameron, who mocked trump's muslim ban from the u.s., calling it divisive, stupid and strong. >> number one, i'm not stupid. i can tell you that right now. just the opposite. number two, in terms of divisive, i don't think i am a divisive person. i'm a unifier, unlike our president now. >> already this morning, trump is chiming in about the democratic race again. tweeting, bernie sanders is being treated badly by the dems. the system is rigged, he writes. he should run as an independent. run, bernie, run. sanders expressed no interest as running as an independent. >> peter, thank you very much. let's bring in mark er
"bloomberg politics." >> good morning. >> donald trump is taking incoming on six fronts. on the "new york times" front page story, on how he treats women, it was a mixed bag. on the one hand, you saw a picture of somebody who, in some cases, was demeaning to women. on the other hand, someone who promoted women and put them in high positions. what is the net effect? >> bill clinton when he ran in 1992 said, if you want a perfect candidate, vote for someone else. we have no perfect candidates. the "new york times" story got a lot of attention. things he did in the story, inappropriate. no one would say, that's the ideal for a president. on the other hand, donald trump and others are saying, if that's the best you've got, my conduct with women, bring it on. >> he's on the defensive for that article. he goes on the offense on the other side. this shows how important the women's vote is going to be in this race. former president bill clinton
hillary clinton was an enabler of that behavior. how will this weigh out? >> voters will look at both things. basically, it'll be who ends up with more baggage on their freight car with them? >> not inspiring, by the way. >> it's not. i think you're going to see maybe, at times, both candidates look and say, do we want a truce? the reason trump has an advantage, i think, in the fights is because trump goes hard without any sense of shame or remorse or feeling about his own behavior that projects negatively. when hillary clinton deals with the issues, you see the weight on her. trump doesn't deal with weight. the political reality is, i think trump relishes the fights. he's not afraid of them, and she is. one advantage he has. >> let's talk about trump continuing to beat the drum as sanders running as an independent. sanders says he wouldn't do it because it would hand the election to trump. does trump realize in a
trouble? >> trump looks for every advantage. in a two-person fight, hillary clinton is the favorite, for now. i think he mostly is making mischief. he wants to discord. the press focuses on divisions within the republican party, and those are real, but there are divisions because bernie sanders is still running. >> you talk about making mischief. it was most people's understanding that the stop trump movement was on life support, that it was gone. we have word over the weekend that mitt romney and maybe others are dangling a carrot in front of people, perhaps saying they should go for a third party one. one name that comes up is the billionaire owner of the dallas mavericks, mark cuban. why him? why are they still trying? >> it shows the desperation of people to say, is there any way to stop him? one is to get a third candidate in the race and hope the person can, if not win, stop either trump or clinton from a majority in the electoral college. they're hoping for a convention. is there something they can do with the rules
it's a small group, it's shrinking, but it shows how much they don't want donald trump to be their nominee or president. >> mark halperin, thank you. >> we appreciate it. in other news this morning, storm-weary parts of the south are dealing with even more downpours and heavy flooding. al, what's going on? >> we do not have good news for our friends in texas. there have been torrential downpours around corpus christi. this is video from the last few minutes. streets turned into rivers. a lot of stalled cars. they have rescues going on. people being rescued from their home. school and street closures. it is a mess there, and it's going to continue. right now, areas have picked up 6 to 10 inches of rain around the corpus christi area. we have flash flood watches in houston, texas. this will continue later this afternoon, making their way through houston. also seeing heavy activity through oklahoma and st. s.
we're also going to be watching another area of strong storms firing up again along this system. it's going to continue right on into the beginning and the end of this week. look at the rainfall totals. some areas may pick up 6 to 8 inches of rain, guys, before it's all over, from shreveport to victoria. flooding is going to be a big problem right into the weekend for corpus christi on to houston. >> thank you very much. >> by the way, officials say the heavy rain may have played a roll in a bus rollover accident in laredo, texas. 44 were injured, 8 killed. janet shamlian has the latest on the investigation. >> reporter: investigators are hoping to learn what caused this charter bus to lose control. >> we are conducting a safety investigation, and we will look at the highway, the vehicle, the driver and company operations. >> reporter: owned by oga charters, it was
peop people. the charter was traveling on u.s. 83 when the crash happened saturday morning. there was heavy rain in the area when the bus rolled over on its left side, 42 miles north of laredo. reports from the federal motor carrier safety administration shows oga, who owns two busses, has 15 inspection violations since 2014, including brake and emergency exit problems. investigators haven't said whether the 17-year-old bus in saturday's crash had prior violations. oga hasn't replied to nbc's request for comment. >> this is the worst commercial vehicle accident i've seen in the ten years i've been here. >> reporter: this 5 the-year-2- was one of eight people killed in the crash. a colleague describing her as kindhearted and always making people laugh. 44 were injured, including the
driver, who hasn't been named. ezekiel has six relatives who were hurt. >> broke ribs, punctured lungs, blood in the brain, ear trauma. i was extremely grateful that they're still alive. >> reporter: a weekend get away turned to tratragedy. now, a search for answers. for "today", janet shamlian, nbc news, houston. want to look at a nightmare for travel going on at one of the nation's busiest airports. you're looking live right now at security lines at chicago's o'hare airport. officials say that shortage of tsa staff we've been telling you about is to blame. the problem was so bad last night, some passengers missed their flights, and american airlines had to provide cots for them to sleep on. the tsa struggling to get staffing levels back to normal in recent months, with more than 100 agents quitting each week. >> it'll be a long morning there. fugitive on the fbi's most wanted list was killed last night during a
wounded an fbi agent. the 35-year-old pendleton was wanted for murder in the shooting of an officer earlier this month. officials say pendleton fired shots at police. one agent suffered non-life threatening injuries. police in great britain are calling for an investigation this morning after a fake bomb forced the evacuation of a soccer stadium. this happened just minutes before manchester united's last match of the season. the realistic looking device had been left behind by a private company after a training exerci exercise. before officials discovered it was fake, the match was called off. disappointed fans were sent home. a controlled explosion was carried out. manchester's police commissioner called the incident a fiasco and is demanding to know why the device was left there in the first place. now to frightening moments for a beachgoer in florida. a 23-year-old woman was bitten
by a small shark. when emergency crews arrived, they found the two-foot shark was dead but still attached to the woman's arm. she was taken to a hospital with the shark still attached. she's currently in stable condition. see this? flying sunday night. a baseball game between the rangers and the bluejays. this all started when bluejays outfielder, bautista, was hit in the ribs. he was awarded first base. moments later, he'd attempt to take out rangers second baseman odor on the slide. he didn't appreciate it and punched bautista directly in the face. the bases cleared, and the brawl was on. eight players and coaches were ejected, including bautista and odor. no doubt, suspensions are on the way. that was a shock. >> by the way, the ball was still in play. >> unbelievable. by the way, on the topic of baseball, rene
safety after an incident at fenway park. look at this. a piece of broken bat threw over the protected netting and hit a fan in the head. nbc's joe fryer is outside fenway for us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. fenway is one of many ballparks where the protective netting behind home plate has grown. despite that, the fan was hit by a broken bat over the weekend. now, there is a growing debate. are the nets too little or too much? >> broken bat. >> reporter: the new swath of protective netting at fenway park was not high enough to block a broken bat that hurdled over the net, hitting a fan in the fifth row and cutting him above the eye. >> it doesn't happen often, but when it does, you're worried. >> reporter: the netting at every major league ballpark now extends 70 feet beyond home plate. at funw at fenway, the netting is nearly 10 fee
2014 found 1,750 spectators are hurt each year by bats and balls at major league games. then the close calls. like this father calmly saving his son this year at a spring training game. >> i didn't have a lot of time to think about it. the only thing i can describe it as is dad mode. >> goes flying into the seats. >> reporter: last year at fenway, tonya carpenter was seriously injured when she was hit by a bat. over the weekend, carpenter expressed gratitude for the larger nets but adding, there are serious questions regarding the decision to limit the protection for the patrons to only those seats within 70 feet of home plate. on the flip side, author stephen king, a red sox season ticketholder since the 1980s, questioned the netting in an op-ed last month. when do safety precautions steal away the pure joy of being there, he wrote. i understand the red sox bear some responsibility, but
care of myself to the best of my ability when i'm at the ballpark. >> the red sox continue to warn fans, keep an eye out at all times for balls and bats. especially this day and age, when so many are looking down at their phones. back to you guys. >> that they are. >> there are signs everywhere at the ballparks that say that. >> you have to look up to see them. >> joe fryer, thank you. let's get the rest of al's forecast. mr. roker, good morning again. >> let's show you what we have going on. to the north of texas, we have a risk of severe weather right now for oklahoma on into nebraska. the panhandle of texas, as well. that wet weather stretches all the way up into the pacific northwest. beautiful day in los angeles today. sunshine, temperatures 75 degrees. here in the northeast, temperatures a little on the cool side and breezy. at least we've got the sunshine finally. washington, d.c., you're starting to see the sunshine, as well. the flood threat continues down through the eastern -- make that

it's not cool to not know what you're talking about. >> the president also said building walls goes against everything america stands for. there is dangerous flash flooding in corpus christi, texas, this morning. torrential downpours, 8 to 10 inches of rain in the area overnight. to make matters worse, storms are expected to move in later today. look at this scary moment on the bridge here in new york. a truck hauling scrap metal lost control and rolled over. at least five vehicles were damaged. luckily, no one was seriously injured. traffic was backed up for hours. officials believe the crash was caused by a failure of the truck's suspension system. the coast guard has suspended its search for a missing cruise ship passenger who accidentally fell overboard into the gulf of mexico. nbc's kerry sanders is in galveston, texas, with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning,

my producer is off to the side, shooting from a distance on her iphone, to give us the complete picture, like a bystander would. scenario one, something seth calls deceptive intensity. watch this body camera footage closely. what's happening here? all right. now let's look from the bystander's iphone. that's right. no brawl here. just really bad dancing. >> that is incredible. what does this show us? >> because of the location of the camera and the fact it's looking up at you is and on loose clothing, it makes the situation look like this aggr s aggressive encounter when, of course, with a little more context, we know it's not. >> reporter: okay. on to scenario two. no sound. >> we're going to demonstrate a traffic stop. there have been so many controversial traffic stops caught on police body cameras. there are some officers that don't record the sound, and some departments still that don't release the sound. you're about to see what happens. >> reporter: it looks like a
what's going on here? a, the officer attacked me. b, i attacked the officer. c, the officer helped me. okay. now here it is again with the sound. >> write a ticket today. hey, a bee flew in your car. it's right behind you. >> help me. get out! get out of the car. get out. >> reporter: the sound changes everything. but you won't believe your eyes in scenario three. what the camera can't see. >> police department. you okay? you all right? >> leave me alone. >> you okay? >> leave me alone. >> get on the ground now! get on the ground now! >> why did he attack me? it looked like a normal conversation. he threw me to the ground. here's what the body camera couldn't see. >> leave me alone. >> freeze, right there. i pulled a fake gun on the officer, causing him to react. >> get on the ground now! >> people think body cameras are
transparency and police accountability. sometimes, they will be. sometimes, they won't be. sometimes they'll be misbelieving. >> research on these body cameras is still fairly new. while there are no specific cases of deception yet, experts believe as they become more widespread in the country, there will be. by the way, seth uses videos like this to teach his students in south carolina, even judges, about how to interpret the body cam images and footage. >> wow. first of all, your dancing is a felony. no question about that. seriously, it's amazing what you can't make out just from looking at raw footage. >> and it's important to have. no question about it. but you can't -- you need context, like anything else. >> hopefully it's not the only piece of evidence in a case. >> exactly. >> jeff, thank you. still ahead, the simpson's lives. how the hit managed to pull it off last night. #twittergate. a storm of controversy after an l.a. met
