7:06 am
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 campai, 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 trump's outrage had r@ached such a level that i simply had to speech out. you get to the point where you say, your grandkids will say tg you, papa, what did you do to stop donald trump? i had to get out and speech. >> experts are calling this an unprecedented event in modern political history in this country. a former nominee of a party, in a scathing takedown of the favorite do be the next nominee. this isn't a typical front runner. he's survived moments in this campaign that would have derailed anybody else. you think your speech will matter? not. but i know i couldn't stand
7:07 am
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, personality, which you call his 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
7:08 am
>> that was four years ago, donald trump and mitt romney. >> he's me a lot of money but hasn't been uniformly successful and is far from a geus. trump mortgage. trump university. trump vitamin company. e after the other, failure after failure. just because he's made a lot of money, one, you don't measure your lifi on how much money you've made, but it doesn't mean his economic policies are raght 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, president. year. had i heard him say the things i had now, i wouldn'ttave welcomed his endorsement. when he calls george w. bush a
7:09 am
when he says putin is a strong and powerful leader, leader, popular with his leadpeople. 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. i was looking for as many as i 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 presidenen >> you said if the other candidates can find common ground, i believe we can find a person who can win the genenal 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
7:10 am
>> 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 weon'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 oer three to be the nominee. after march 15th, i think you'll see it narrowed to one or two contenders opposing dald trump and i intend to support one of them. >> leading up, you want marco rubio and ted cruz to back up and led john kasich win ohio. do you want them to back off to let rubio win florida? if we get to cleveland anda contested convention, how do the million of voters, some of whom have come to the process of the rty for the first time because of donald trump, how wl they feel to have the establishment wing of the party pull the rug out from under it? >> a lot of people,
7:11 am
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. yesterday. that's angered people. trump. why didn't you endorse? >> three people on the stage endorsed me and are friends. actually four, , cluding trump. >> is he a friend of yours? >> 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 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
7:12 am
>no, no. the people who can save this partyyre ted cruz, marco rubio or john kasich. we're going to get aense 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'moing to be a little stubborn on this. under any circumstances, governor, iffarge numbers of people in the establishment wing of the republicaca party come to say and say, mitt, you can save the day, under any circumstances, would you be a part of this predential 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. unammiousbiguous unambiguous, i will not run for president. >> i won't r for president. there are mainstream republicans who believe in conservative values. whether established or not,
7:13 am
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 lp americans. we need to create good jobs for th american people. >> the tone of the race. candidates call each other losers, liars, sweaters, chokers. they've made of each otr's appearance, the size of their ears, the size of their hands. you read betwe 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 w has been the smallest adult, and that's he's taken -- >> how about the other way? >> i'll go both ways. personal attributes and made fun campaign. some of the candidates say, i have to return fire. last night he pointed at marco
7:14 am
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 you want to become the nominee, you've got to 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 and i expect that nominee to be a real conservative and republican. >> mitt romney, i appreciate you coming in this morning. >> thank you, matt. good to be withh 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 donald trump, i imagine it was ka that arer great to hear that. you think it was persuasive to someone who does support trump? >> a piece was in the wall street journal about how the
7:15 am
the establishment split with the base of our party. she makes the point that you c get a new establishment. you cannot get a 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 thousds of republican primary goers. it was a brave speech, to go out and make a speech like that after people have started to vote and to be against someone without somebody for someone takes political courage. romney is respected by my republicans. i think he wasaybe speaking to the decided. the people decided they could never support trump will be cheere by his words, but i don't think he got through to the 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?
7:16 am
the order of how the races will come down. but we need a new rule. when there is a reference to the size of body parts, they need to defer to john kasich. talk about someone watching with their 12-year-old daughter, cringing through the whole thing. a party has to look at how we resource the elegance to the office. >> it's like a square jar, drop a delegate in every time. >> yeah. on the democratic side, there 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 immuneityimmunity. brian pagliano has records that show no evidence of cking. clinton's use of the private e-mail server duringg secretary of state has prompted an

7:31 am
>> 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 more of these do we have to sit through? 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 last half hour and asked him why he waited so long to get involved in the race. i wanted to be 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
7:32 am
>> romney said he'll do everything in normal political bounds to stop trump from being nominated. we have a lot to talk about with o o next guest, senator marco rubio. good to see you, sir. >> good morning. >> you really let donaldrump have it, calling him a con artist, calling him a fraud, sayi he doesn't really know much about foreign policy and seems uncurious to learn. 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'sow bad she is. i would look at that as a reflection of how badhe 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
7:33 am
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 for 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 and vote for donald trump. >> yeah, i know. look, i'm not voting for hillary clinton. i get it. lolo, i understand your question. 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 growit. 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.
7:34 am
against her in the polling. >> mitt romney endorsed a strategy, not a candidate yesterday. he said, donything 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 able to do at this point is get it to a contested convention, where we can settle it there? >> no. look, my strategys vote for me in florida but vote for me everywhere else, too. everywhere else. this is not about a contested election, per se. no one is aiminin 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. you could have someone that really gains steam down the stretch here and has a large numbmr of delegates and brings
7:35 am
this is an`unusual race. there's anxiety in the country. 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 whatt that correlates to. i know donald trump is no stranger to an insult, but after all, in fairness, 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 debe that donald trump does that he doesn't personally offend or try to offend somebody. i said something one time to a guy who needs to be stood up to. by the way, in response to an attack against me. i didn't do itast night. i didn't do it repeatedly.
7:36 am
guy is a rhetorical bully. he mocks the disabled, makes fun of minorities and women, makes fun of journalists, his other candidates. even last night, he was asked about foreign policy. his response was a personal attack against me. this 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. i want that to end, and i'll continue to work for that to end. >> senator rubio, can hear it in your voice, late ninit, early morning, thank you for your time. we appreciate zblitit. >> thank you. >> all these guys must be tired. 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

9:03 am
rubio said, you know what they say about guys can smama hands. here's what trump said last night. >> he hit my hands. body has ever hit my hands. look at those hands, are they small hands? and he referred to my hands, if they're small, something else must be small. i guarantee you, there's no problem. i guarantee you. >> it's not even high school level here. >> if it weren't so serious, you could say, oh, my gosh. but, i mean these are the people, the lasas 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 morning. >> i feel like we're one debate away 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 continue.
9:04 am
debates, 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 off bullying, child-like behavr with 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 party, they've broken records. we've been out on the campaign trail. people 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 know what's interesting, we had a graphic up a couple days ago, where in 2008, for the huge turnout obama brought onn the democratic side, the flip has happened this year. untold story. tons and tons of people are
9:05 am
argue. trump and cruz were having a heated diskigscussion about the supreme court nominating process him. >> let me point out -- >> that is not what you said in the op-ed. >> donald, i know it's hard not to interruptpt but try. >> it's not what you said. >> breathe, breathe. >> you can breathe. i know it's hard. >> when they're done with yoga, 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 moderatorsf fox, they did a good job prosecuting substantive cases and putting stats up and asking questions. it always seemed to diego to those moments. rubio calling trump a con man, dangerous, the last question of the evening, candidates were asked if they'd support donald
9:06 am
>> i'll support the republican nominee. >> mr. trump, yes or no? >> i'll support donald to be the republican nominee. >> yes because i gave my word i would. what i have 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. >> yes, you will support the nominee of the party? >> yes. >> the top of trump said, i i'm not the nominee, it's not going to happen. but for people watching at home and people across the country, you listen to the campaign and people saying, donald trump will ruin this country if he's made >> the world. the guy. >> i t teted last night and 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
9:07 am
yourself, w wch is more important? your party and an unofficial promise or pledge or your country, or are you playing us? this is applicable not just to the republican party. this can be applied to the democratic side. mae 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. mitt romney is ready to answer it 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
9:08 am
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 business. he didn't create it. let me take you back four years. listen to this. >> donald trump h shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works, to create jobs for the american people. sector, not quite as successful as this guy, but successful nonetheless. two guys. donald trump and mitt romney. >> he's a successful guy. made a lot of money. but he hasn't been u uformly successful and is far from a business genius. trump university, trump stak, 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.
9:09 am
this morning, governor, are saying, wait a nute, he willingly welcomed the endorsement of donald trump four years ago, even though he was knee deep in the birther movement and made other comments. why go 180 degrees on the guy now? >> i was seeking his endorsement. now he's seeking 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. frankly, had i heard him say the things i've heard him say now, i wouldn't have welcomed his endorsement. >> i mean, this is, again, why people don like politics. feels cynical, to flip that way. the only thing in governor romney's defense i'll say, you n accept an endorsement, but it's something else to endorse somebody to be president of the united states. trump was a businessman athis point. now he wants to lead the country. romney thinks it's his obligation to prevent it. >> legit point. t the thing that matt brought
9:10 am
was full birther. and had claimed that he sent people off to hawaii. they found all this incrediblele stuff he's never revealed publicly. we'l'l see. i mean, voters are speaking out. ultimately, that's democracy. >> it's true. >> can we talk about something happy? >> yes! >> not that politics isn't happy but -- >> well, something our viewers have contributed to >> right. people have spoken. >> yeah. >> last week, nat and i showed you pictures of our very first concert. you went to see. >>pandau ballet. ohio players as a 5-year-old. >> mine was no doubt. >> that's a great fun. >> it was fun. mosh pit and everything. >> willie? >> i can't remember. i said i'm from new jersey, so probably bonn joe jovi. >> we asked you to send us your wildesttooks from your first concert.
