2:05 am
compassionate conservative who understands when you cut things like medicare and medicaid it hurts people. the loser is ben carson. he came out said he wanted to cut medicare and medicaid entirely then he was for it because he realized it wasn't popular. >> some said he seemed to be over his head. kasich seemed to be screaming and yelling at people and lecturing people? >> if you were john kasich you need to get into the conversation. so many others are sucking the oxygen out of the room. i went for marco rubio. he was able to relate things in personal terms that would connect with the voter. he was a great communicator in that. as far as the loser, mr. trump, you are definitely getting fired when it comes to economic issues.

2:13 am
i'm mary ellen, and i quit smoking with chantix. i have smoked for thirty years and by taking chantix, i was able to quit in three months. and that was amazing. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it absolutely reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix.
2:14 am
use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
2:15 am
>> the candidates went head to head on the key issues but who got the facts correct and who tra strayed from the truth? here to fact check is national political reporter rebecca bird. thank you for being with us. let's start with the moderator asking donald trump why he criticized zuckerberg and then calling marco rubio his personal senator. let's listen to the sound bite then i will get the reaction. >> i was not at all critical of them. he's complaining about the fact that we are losing some of the moat talented people they go to harvard and yale and princeton they come from other cop tree and they are immediately sent
2:16 am
out. i am in favor of keeping these talented people here so they can go to work in silicon valley. >> he said he didn't criticize mark zuckerberg is that true or false? >> working against donald trump is his campaign where he calls marco rubio zuckerberg's personal senator. maybe donald trump is not reading his own campaign material. there is no evidence he said the words from his mouth before. you have to have a consistent campaign message if it is on your campaign web site there's no wiggle room. >> she said where did i come up with the information. she apologized. >> she gives statistics of women losing jobs under president obama. >> 92 percent of the jobs lost during barack obama's first term belonged to women. 3 million women have fallen into poverty under this administration. the number of women living in
2:17 am
extreme poverty is the highest level op record. >> true or false? >> this was a really interesting one for me ainsley. this is one we talked about during the last presidential election. mitt romney used the same statistic and got blow back from it. technically it is true. it doesn't take into account the job loss before president obama took office. typically men lose jobs before women. they have the administration, you found more behm but it is not really true. >> was jeb bush talking about marco rubio you should resign you are not in the senate you are not spoke cussed -- focusen your job. here he is defending his record. >> a senate by the name of bob graham ran for president missing over 30 percent of the votes. i don't recall him calling for his resignation.
2:18 am
later that year john kerry ran missing 50-60 percent of his votes. they sent an em bothersment. barack obama missed 60 to 70 percent of the votes and the same paper endorsed them again. they are saying why are you criticizing me. >> are they true or false? >> they are. if you mention 2008 may be apple to oranges definitely true. >> rebecca joining us again. thank you. >> the time is 18 after the top of the hour. marco rubio verses the moderator. >> i didn't have to woshth it. >> you did. >> that's something the two have been battling about for weeks. the proof now the moderator was wrong. a fight over faith why the coach denied orders and prayed with his team now needs a prayer of his own.

2:24 am
moderator. she said she could condense the tax code down to three-pages. >> a little stretch. >> we have 73,000 pages in tax codes and we can reform that. >> lastly about the moderators this morning. specifically going after the candidates and having to be corrected. rubio and har wood. let's listen to a little bit of their exchange about reducing the tax plan. >> you know the story>> y oo. >> you did. the tax foundation said after tax income for the top 1 percent under your plan would go up 27.9 percent. people in the middle of the income spectrum about 15 percent. >> because the math is 5 percent of a million is a lot more than 5 percent of 1,000.
2:25 am
>> they have been down this road john harwood having to correct the exact same thing he was talking about last night. two weeks ago we had a tweet that he posted earlier correcting earlier fweet tax foundation says review benefits lowest 10 percent proportionately more than top 1 percent average 17.8 percent. he did the same thing last night. >> he is on the play roll with hillary clinton. this is wrong. i thought he handled it very as well. overall cnbc did a poor job man ablging the debate. that's why cnbc should be ashamed of how they were doing it. the whole presentation and how they were going back and forth. at thats like they wanted it to be about them rather than the candidates. >> which you should never do you should strive not to do that as a journalist. >> thank you so much. appreciate it as always you getting up early with us. now worry about the fire

2:51 am
about rubio's tax plan. he had corrected his own lies two weeks earlier. he repeated that line of attack even knowing it was absolutely categorically false. i think there's no better display of bias. >> it was totally amazing. trying to call out ben carson on his vetting capabilities. clearly a lot of their questions they hadn't vetted. >> ted cruz had a big moment. let's listen. >> the questions illustrate. are you a comic book villain? can you do math, john kasich will you insult two people over here. marco rubio, why don't you resign? jeb bush, why have your numbers fallen? he didn't answer the question which was about the debt ceiling. what was your response to that? it was a huge moment to him. >> i think him saying that sort of refocused the debate.
2:52 am
what we saw prior to that was a lot of bickering on the stage. a lot of the candidates took the bait. he reshifted. he refocused the debate. we heard the attacks from all of the candidates. chris christie member ran bring said, look, i'm from new jersey and even in new jersey you're being rude. marco rubio accused the mainstream media and moderators of being the super pac. the rnc's chairman put out a statement attacking the moderators. we saw liberal bias on full display last night. >> tried to get huckabee to go against trump. he said, i'm wearing a trump tie. >> the gop going against the mainstream media. that's the debate last night. >> all right. exactly. >> thanks so much. have a great day. pollster frank luntz said

2:54 am
football. >> like that description. big mess. >> he made an excellent point. i thought governor christie did a great job with that question. >> a lot of them had good moments. the time is eight minutes until the top of the hour. it was two hours of talk, but what did the social media world think about the debate? who lit up twitter and who had the biggest fight on social media overall? the topics still trending this morning. some cash back cards love to overcomplicate things.
2:55 am
like limiting where you earn bonus cash back. why put up with that? but the quicksilver card from capital one likes to keep it simple. real simple. i'm talking easy like-a- walk-in-the-park, nothing-to-worry-about, man-that-feels-good simple. quicksilver earns you unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. it's a simple question. what's in your wallet?

2:59 am
