7:05 am
the candidates face their first true face-off. the first of the three presidential debates now less than three weeks away. trump will be there. matt and savannah. >> thank you very much. let's dive further into what clinton and trump are planning for the final stretch. nicolle wallace and mark halperin join us. well rested. looking good. let me start with you, mark. what does he need to focus on over the next 63 days. what does he need to avoid? >> focus on making the election about change and the economy. have a great first debate and start running tv ads in some of these states. he needs to avoid having focus on him over the flaps and controversy he creates on a regular basis. >> how would you answer the same question, nicole? >> he needs to be more normal. he's been a weird political figure.
7:06 am
the campaign spends more days on offense which is attacking the other side which means that campaign almost always wins. he has an opportunity to be on offense because there are -- the electorate has questions about hillary clinton's judgment. and there is the fbi in the news about dumping the investigation of the server. he instead got himself embroiled he cannot resist the temptation to take a cheap shot at other republicans. >> let's switch over now. hillary clinton and her campaign. what must she focus on and what must she avoid? >> she has to undermine any sense that people have that donald trump is a safe choice. people want change. what they don't want is risky change. she needs to relentlessly point out to this guy that he's not prepared. she also has to sell herself and what kind of president she will be. she needs to avoid errors that highlight people's lack of faith in her that she would change things and that she's
7:07 am
>> i'm drafting behind matt's question. >> that's obvious today. >> i have a mananiacal job. i have an obsession with the first debate. she's done a really good job painting him as a little bit of a lunatic. and if he seems milder than what she's told people he would be like, he could succeed simply by reading the phone book in a mellow voice. caricature him to a point where he takes the stage with her and looks, you know, normal. >> do you look at these debates as a huge inflection point? the media always hypes the debates. this time it's true? >> these will be worldwide events. this campaign is the o.j. simpson trial of political campaigns. the first debate will be the kaelin testimony. i think these debates will be the moment where the public
7:08 am
any benefits by low expectations? >> he does. the clinton campaign is concerned about this. they are worried if he shows up and doesn't drool on himself, it will be a huge win. he needs to come to the first debate and reassure people that he's a plausible person the american people can be proud of. that's what he's trying to do. a look at his whole life. >> i don't know why i always love the swallows returning to capastrano, but i do. congress back in session after a long recession. one of the topics we're going to hear about in the coming months or weeks is the possible shutdown of the government again. how might that play into the campaign, the race, nicolle? >> i think this whole republican side of the race at least was about outsiders. i think to the degree that the men and women in washington look like typical gridlock insiders, i think that could serve trump's interest.
7:09 am
they don't like the way washington works. if washington looks dysfunctional and he says i can fix it and she can't because she's part of the problem, that would be an advantage for him for sure. >> nicolle, mark, thank you. a reminder tomorrow night both clinton and trump will take part in our special live prime time forum from nbc news and iraq and afghanistan veterans of america. the focus, issues that would confront them as commander in chief. you can see it at 8:00 eastern here on nbc and msnbc. in the meantime, trouble from hermine is far from over. the storm that caused trouble over the holiday weekend is lingering over the east coast and another day of rough surf is on tap. let's go to al. he's got the latest. good morning to you. >> this video you're looking at is from a beach house that caught fire and the winds there along the rhode island beach so difficult for the firefighters to fight. you can see the trees blowing. this house a total loss. thankfully nobody was at home. we'll deal with winds like that again.
