7:02 am
donald trump facing fire from his fellow candidates and his party's 2012 nominee, mitt romney. governor romney is with us in our studio exclusively. we'll talk to him in a moment. let's start with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. here's here to break down last night's debate. good morning. you were at the speech yesterday as well. >> donald trump fended off his rivals and the moderators who challenged his inconsistent positions from the past. those were the serious moments but to put this mildly, this debate was about silly, surreal, with name calling, taunts, flying accusations, including one that we in the media just can't fact check. >> reporter: with the stakes never higher. >> don't worry about it little marco. >> the blows kept getting lower. >> you're the liar. >> reporter: the show down at motown, coming down to hand to hand combat. >> look at those hands. are they small hands? he referred to my hands, they're small, so something else must be
7:03 am
small. i guarantee you, there's no problem. i guarantee you. >> reporter: donald trump ripping down his opponents to size. >> this little guy lied so much about my record. >> reporter: the tycoon getting it from both sides. pivoting to his likely opponent this fall. >> i haven't started on hilary yet. >> nice to be with you, meghan. >> great to have you here. >> looking well. >> reporter: and he moved to the middle. >> you have to have some flexibility, negotiation. i'm changing it and softening the position. >> but marco rubio and ted cruz not softening their attacks on the front-runner's failed business dealings. like the now defunct trump university that's landed trump a defendant in a class-action lawsuit. >> if we nominate donald, we're going to spend the spring -- the fall and the summer with the republican nominee facing a fraud trial. >> oh, stop it. >> with hillary clinton saying why did you give my campaign and
7:04 am
foundation $100,000. >> he's trying to con people into giving them their vote. >> the real con artist is senator marco rubio. who was elected in florida. >> reporter: with only john kasich sticking to an uplifting message. >> why don't we come together as a country, respect one another, love one another and lift this country. >> reporter: insieving he'll stay in the race through ohio. >> it's march madness and we're heading up north to the place -- to my turf, okay. >> reporter: hours earlier, the party's 2012 nominee unleashed an unprecedented attack on the 2016 favorite. >> he's a phony, a fraud. >> reporter: undercutting the front-runner's key credential. >> say wait, wait, wait, isn't he a huge business success? doesn't he no he what he's talking about? no, he isn't and no he doesn't. >> reporter: but the stop trump movement may have been stopped in its tracks with trump's three
7:05 am
remaining rivals pledging to back him if he's the nominee. even as they continue to challenge trump. >> donald has a tenuous relationship with the truth. >> that is not what you said in the -- >> donald, please, i know it's hard not to interrupt. >> it's not what you said in the op-ed. >> breathe, breathe, breathe. >> lying ted. >> when they're done with the yoga, can i answer a question. >> you cannot. i really hope you don't see yoga on this stage. >> he's very flexible. you never know. >> it all comes down to the next 11 days leading up to the next super tuesday, march 15th when we'll likely learn whether donald trump will be able to secure the nomination or if the republican race is really headed toward a contested convention. that is a scenario that mitt romney seemed to push for were urging republicans to support rubio and kasich and cruz elsewhere. it's also a situation where nothing would stop party leaders from adding romney's name to the mix. >> peter, thank you so much. good place to start with.
7:06 am
over to matt. >> thanks for the setup, peter. appreciate it. mitt romney is with us exclusively. thanks for joining us. >> good to be with you. >> depending who you listen to this morning, governor, you are a traitor who proves that the establishment of the republican party is so afraid that they can't control donald trump that they'll do anything to stop him or you're a hero who has finally put this race into perspective. for the people who think you're a hero, they're asking a question. why did you wait so long? tell me about the timing. >> well, i've wanted to be involved in the campaign, if you will, as a bit of a referee. when there were foul balls be aible to call them and see if i can't keep people, if you will, 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 speak out. i mean, you get to the point where you say your grand kids will say to you, papa, what did you do to stop donald trump? i had to get out and speak. >> experts are calling this an unprecedented event in modern
7:07 am
political history in this country, a former nominee of a party in a scathing takedown of the favorite to be become the next nominee. this isn't a typical front-runner. this is a guy who has survived moments in this campaign that would have derailed anybody else. do you think your speech will matter? >> i don't know if it will or not. but i know i couldn't stand silent anymore. you can't have someone whose policies are so far from the views of my party become nominee. someone demonstrated that he doesn't have the temperament or personal equalities to become president. >> you said he's dangerous for the country, dangerous for working americans, you attacked him on economic policy, foreign policy, his personality which you call his third grade antics, his business acumen. isn't he a huge business success that knows what he's talking about? 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.
7:08 am
all right. and 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 quite as successful as this guy but successful nonetheless. >> that was four years ago, same two guys, donald trump and mitt romney. >> he's a successful guy. he's made a lot of money but he hasn't been uniformly successful and he's far from a business genius. trump university, trump steaks, trump mortgage, trump vitamin company, one after the other, failure after failure. just because he's made a lot of money, one you don't measure your life by how much money you make. because he's made a lot of money doesn't mean his economic policies are right for america. >> the people who are angry are saying he willingly welcomed the endorsement of donald trump four years ago, even though he was already knee deep in the birther movement and had made other
7:09 am
incendiary comments. why go 180 degrees. >> i was seeking his endorsement. now he's seeking mine. 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. when i calls george w. bush a liar, when he says putin is a strong and poweller fell leader, popular with his people. when he mocks a reporter because of a disability, when he attacks women because of their looks or menstrual cycle. >> did you beg him for his endorsement? >> i was welcoming his endorsement, happy to have it. i was looking for as many endorsers as i could possibly have. when it comes to who i would support for president, there are a lot of folks that endorsed me i would not want to see as president. >> you laid out a plan, saying that if the other candidates can find common ground i believe we can nominate a person who will represent the values and
7:10 am
policies of conservatism. given the current delegate selection process, this means i would vote for marco rubio in florida, for john kasich in ohio and for ted cruz or whichever one of the other two contenders has the best chance of beating mr. trump in a given state. you are calling for nothing less than a suppress donald trump movement that will lead to cleveland and a contested convention. >> there's no question. i'm going to do everything within the normal political bounds to make sure we don't nominate donald trump. i think he would be terribly unfit for office. i don't think he has the temperament to become president. i want to see one of the other three become nominee. after march 15th i think you'll see it narrow down to one or two contenders. i intend to support one of them leading up to march 15th, you want marco rubio and ted cruz to back off and let john kasich win ohio? do you want john kasich and ted cruz to back off and let marco rubio win florida? and if we get to cleveland and a
7:11 am
contested convention, how are these millions of voters, some of whom have come to the process in the party for the first time because of donald trump, how are they going to feel to have put donald trump in the lead and watch the establishment wing of the party pull the rug out from under him? >> first of all, a lot of people, establishment or not, who agree that donald trump should not be president of the united states and don't want to see him become the republican nominee. right now it's about 65% of republicans who had like someone else. that's the way politics works. you get behind the people you support, fight for them and the person who wins in the process is the one who becomes your nominee. >> you didn't endorse anybody yesterday. that's also angered a lot of people. it can't be about anybody but trump. why didn't you endorse? >> there are three people on the stage who all endorsed me and are friends, actually four, including donald trump. i want to see how they -- >> is he a friend of yours. >> we get along. i doubt we're going to spend a lot of time together now. we'll see on march 15th, i think a narrowing of the field and at
7:12 am
that point, i wouldn't be srped if i endorse one of those 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 contested convention in july? >> no, no. the people who can save this party are ted cruz, marco rubio or john kasich. we're going to get a sense within a few days of who that person might be. i'll be supporting that person and doing everything i can to make sure they become the nominee of the party. >> i'll be stubborn on this. under any circumstances, governor, if large numbers of people in the establishment wing of the republican party come to you and say, mitt, you're the guy who can save the day. under any circumstances would you be a part of this presidential race as a candidate? >> there are no circumstances i can foresee that would possibly happen. >> i can foresee. >> no reasonable scenario i
7:13 am
would imagine. >> close the door, slam the door on it. you will not run for president. >> i am not running for president and i won't run for president. the term establishment is a real mistake. mainstream republicans believe in conservative values, people whether established or not , hae watched going on. what's happening with donald trump, is recognizing people are angry as they should be. he's channelled that anger in a way that will not help working families. there are other republicans who will lift people out of poverty and create good jobs for the american people. >> last question, these candidates have called each other losers, liars, sweaters, chokers, they've made fun of each other's appearance, the size of their ears, the size of their hands. you read between 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 person who's been the
7:14 am
smallest adult. and that's donald trump. he has taken personal, physical attributes and made fun of people on the basis throughout the campaign. some of the candidates are saying i have to return fire. last night, he kept pointing at marco rubio and saying little marco, little marco. this is a new low in presidential politics and simply wrong. i think john kasich is saying, i'm not going to do that. but 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? >> i wouldn't vote for donald trump. and i wouldn't vote for hillary clinton. i intend to vote for our nominee. i expect that nominee to be a real conservative, a real republican. >> governor mitt romney. i appreciate you coming in this morning. >> thank you, matt. nicolle wallace here. she was a communications
7:15 am
director for president george w. bush. if you don't like donald trump, i imagine was cathartic to hear that. do you think it was persuasive to somebody who does support donald trump. >> peggy noonan writes in a beautiful piece in the "wall street journal" who this has happened. the republican party is broken, establishment has split with the base of our party. she makes the brilliant point you can get a new establishment. you cannot get a new base of the party. we're at a moment where i think it's perilous to indict the wishes and now the choice of hundreds of thousands of republican primarigoers. it was a brave speech to go out and make a speech like that after people have started to vote. romney is respected and reveered by many republicans. i think he was maybe in this instance speaking to the decided, the people who have decided they could never support trump will be cheered by his words. i don't think he got through to
7:16 am
the people who are inspired and animated by trump. >> on the other hand, there's still a lot of voting left. we'll see how republican primary voters ultimately come down, although there's no question donald trump is the front-runner right now. >> right. >> let's talk about the debate for a moment. what do you think? does it move the needle? does it even matter anymore? >> i do think we need a new rule whenever anyone makes a reference to the size of any of their body parts, they have to give a delegate to john kasich. the "r" rated nature of this makes it hard to watch with your kids. i talked to someone who was watching with their 12-year-old daughter, cringing through the whole thing. the party has to look as a party how we restore the elegance to the office. >> it's a swear jar, is that what you're saying? drop a delegate in every time. >> yes. and the democratic side, new developments on hillary clinton's e-mail controversy. the federal employee who helped set up and manage the private server is cooperating with the fbi now that he has immunity.
7:17 am
"the new york times" reports that he has turned over security logs from clinton's logs. clinton's use of a private e-mail server while serving as secretary of state has prompted an investigation into whether she or others in her administration mishandled classified information. all right. i was looking out a second ago, snowing here in new york, just a little. passing through? >> that's right. it will be a quick hitter. as we take a look, lewis, delaware. there's quite a bit of snow but it is melting for the most part. slushy surfaces with be school delays from the washington, d.c. area up into the new york area. this will be a quick hitter for the most part. rain right along the coast, snow, all the way up into new england. as this system pushes up and away, it will intensify. biggest thing we'll see is maybe some stronger winds. in fact, gale force winds out there from maine to the carolinas. airport delays. but as i said, this moves off
7:18 am
pretty quickly and we'll be left with much cooler air here in the northeast. the other big story this weekend, we are looking at heavy rain, making its way into california over the next several days. next five days. seven inches of rain in northern california, 1 to 2 inches down through los angeles. mud flow and debris flow going to be a big, big problem. we get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. my dog girlfriend is 17 years old. she's been eating dog chow from her very first day and she can still chase squirrels. she can't catch them, but she can still chase them. after 17 years i'm still confident in feeding her dog chow because i see the high quality ingredients that go into it. i'm very proud to make dog chow right here in edmond, oklahoma. good morning, i'm meteorologist kari hall.
7:19 am
low clouds all across the bay area this morning and some spots with low visibility like in san francisco, as well as parts of the north bay where had some very light, spotty showers coming down. we're looking at highs today that will be up to 67 degrees in the peninsula and 69 degrees in the south bay and east bay up to 64 and the tri-valley 69 degrees. a couple brief showers moving through this afternoon. some much heavier rain moving in tomorrow. ur. >> i saw a six next week. >> i saw seven. >> i see a six and raise you a seven. >>let not take al's job. we'll get senator rubio's take on last night's debate and mitt romney's call to action against trump. erin andrews' $75 million civil trial is heading to the jury. possibly as soon as today. we're live at the courthouse. first, this is "today" on nbc. >> there are no circumstances i can foresee where that would possibly happen.

7:29 am
7:30 am

7:31 am
detroit last night for the republican presidential candidates. cruz and rubio stepped up their efforts to take down the front runner trump. the big news, trump defending the size of his hands. he kept talking about them to nbc news in the post-debate room. >> the hands and -- >> 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
7:32 am
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 speech out. >> romney said he'll do everything in normal political bounds to stop trump from being nominated. we have a lot to talk about with our next guest, senator marco rubio. good to see you, sir. >> good morning. >> you really let donald trump have it, calling him a con artist, calling him a fraud, saying 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
7:33 am
hillary clinton would be a disaster to the country. that's how bad she is. i would look at that as a reflection of how bad she 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 position that trump is today, 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 trp. >> yeah, i know. look, i'm not voting for hillary clinton. i get it. look, 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
7:34 am
why they voted. the only way to avoid that is unify around a campaign like mine, because i can bring the party together and grow it. 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. that's why he does poorly against her in the polling. >> mitt romney endorsed a strategy, not a candidate yesterday. he said, do anything to stop trump. rubio in florida. kasich in ohio. cruz anywhere you think he' 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 strategy is vote for me in florida but vote for me everywhere else, too. i want people to vote for me everywhere else. this is not about a contested election, per se. no one is aiming toward that. the reality of it if you look at
7:35 am
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 number of delegates and brings everyone together who agrees. 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 vulg 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 what 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
7:36 am
regular basis. in fact, there is not a speech or debate 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 it last night. i didn't do it repeatedly. it happened one time because the 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 night, early morning, thank you for your time. we appreciate zblit. >> thank you. >> all these guys must be tired. it's a long process.
7:37 am
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 s our temperature situation that may spell the end of the winter storm. chilly over the northeast and great lakes. today, temperatures will be 5 to 15 degrees below average from jacksonville up to chicago and out to new york and into new england. saturday, the warm air is coming. one more day of cooler than normal temperatures in the northeast. 5 to 15 above average spills to the east. by sunday, cleveland is up to 45. i memphis, 69. monday, new york city, 58. 67 in louisville. as we get further into the week, we'll be looking at warmer temperatures into the northeast and mid-atlantic we have some low clouds and
7:38 am
fog this morning and expecting mostly cloudy skies throughout the day. as we go into this afternoon a few brief passing showers will be possible and a mix of sun and clouds and heading into tomorrow, a bigger storm system arrives and it will bring in heavy rain along with gusty winds and flash flooding will be possible. we are expecting a chance of showers today but very hit or miss and san francisco to the south and, once again, the bigger storm system will arrive tomorrow when some more widespread rain and winds up to 60 miles an hour. matt? >> al, thank you very much. closing arguments getting underway this morning in the $75 million lawsuit brought by sports reporter erin andrews over the leaked video secretly recorded at a nashville hotel. morgan radford has been covering the trial for us. good morning. >> good morning, matt. the jury could get this case as early as today, at which point, they have to decide whether, in fact, the hotel shares the blame for the secretly recorded stalker video, to whether
7:39 am

>> did you watch the oscars the other night? were you there? >> i wasn't there. i was home in pajamas. >> so was i. funny. when you watch a show like that now, are you like the skin care police? >> no. >> do you look at the red carpet and look at actresses and actors and think, oh, they could do something about those wrinkles or they need concealer? >> no. everybody looked pretty good, let's face it. it was a pretty good red carpet. >> do you find people coming up to you on the street and asking advice, saying, now that you're in the business, how do i look? >> i think at, we're very much like a trusted friend, so people, as an extension of the brand, come to me and ask me for tips or travel tips or health or wellness, beauty. so, it's part of what i do now. >> i was reading something, i think it was "glamour" magazine -- don't hold me to that -- and you kind of fought back against some criticism on pricing. it seems you've decided that since this is important to you, you're not going to let people say things that you don't agree with. >> well, i think people who are
8:23 am
going to criticize -- and i'm open to criticism and learning more -- but people who are going to criticize should have all of the empirical information. so, to say we're so expensive when we actually have a range across all price points, you know. >> like the way you put it. have empirical information. know what you're talking about -- >> exactly. >> -- is what you're really saying. i saw some pictures not long ago, super bowl. >> uh huh. >> and obviously, coldplay was the halftime act. >> yes. >> and there was a great picture of, i think it was apple at the game. first of all, before i get to the picture, what is it like to take your kids to the super bowl and have them look up and see dad on the stage at halftime? >> you know, it's pretty incredible. it's also a little weird that your first football game is that, you know? so, how do you also counteract that, and you know, instill that life is not that all the time? but they were so proud of him, and it was such a gorgeous performance and very uplifting, and they were thrilled. they were very proud. >> these pictures that i saw -- i saw one where i think apple was holding beyonce's daughter's
8:24 am
hand. >> uh huh. >> there's another picture of you and apple. and can i just say, i mean, it's amazing. i mean, she looks just like her mom. >> aww. >> i'm sure she looks a little like her dad, chris, as well, but she looks just like you. >> she's -- well, she's a whole other level. she's an amazing girl. she really is. >> i think the other thing i really liked about seeing the pictures from the super bowl is it says that despite all that's been written and said about the relationship coming apart, you two still really support each other. >> yes. we're a family, you know? even though we're not in a romantic relationship, we're a true family, and we like to do things to reinforce that we're a family for the children, for each other, and he's like my brother. he's really -- i'm very close to him. >> when the talk started about the uncoupling, did you ignore it? could you not read the articles? could you not read social media? >> i don't tend to read a lot of that sort of thing. and i mean, obviously, i knew it
8:25 am
was going on -- >> right. >> -- because it was kind of a big -- i unwittingly created a whole sort of hoopla with my choice of words. it wasn't my words, actually. i was sort of following a theory. but you know, it was a very intense time for our family, and there was -- emotions were very high and deep and all over the place, so i just tried to keep to myself as much as possible. >> and everybody seems to be happy, which in the end, is that not all that matters? >> that's all that matters. >> coldplay coming to the show here in a couple of weeks. i know people. >> great, thank you. >> i might be able to get you in, just letting you know. it's good to have you back. >> nice to be here. >> don't make it so long next time. >> thank you so much. i won't. >> let's go to savannah. all right, from gwyneth to a living legend, loretta lynn is here. do you know how excited everybody is? like, everyone's got their cameras up. they want selfies! let's go get one. we're back after your local news. we love you, loretta! you, lore.

9:03 am
went, oh. the republican debate descended into childish moments. trump said despite what rubio suggested earlier this week, when talking about the size of trump's hands -- an old thing people said, if you have small hands -- trump said, i have great hands. rubio said, you know what they say about guys can small hands. here's what trump said last night. >> he hit my hands. nobody 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 last men standing, since carly is out, no women on the gop side, running for president. mitt romney has been, you know,
9:04 am
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. you let your kids watch the 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 of bullying, child-like behavior 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
9:05 am
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 on the democratic side, the flip has happened this year. untold story. tons and tons of people are coming out, partly because of donald trump, or largely, i'd argue. trump and cruz were having a heated diskicussion about the supreme court nominating process when senator cruz interrupted him. >> let me point out -- >> that is not what you said in the op-ed. >> donald, i know it's hard not to interrupt 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 moderators of fox, they did a good job prosecuting
9:06 am
substantive cases and putting stats up and asking questions. it always seemed to dgo to thos moments. rubio calling trump a con man, dangerous, the last question of the evening, candidates were asked if they'd support donald trump as the nominee. >> 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, if 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
9:07 am
ruin this country if he's made president. >> the world. >> then they say, i'll support the guy. >> i tweeted last night and said, this is why people hate 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 to vote, you have to ask yourself, which 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. maybe 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
9:08 am
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 business success that knows what 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 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 quite as successful as this guy, but successful nonetheless. >> that was four years ago, same two guys. donald trump and mitt romney. >> he's a successful guy. made a lot of money. but he hasn't been uniformly
9:09 am
successful and is far from a business genius. trump university, trump stakes, trump mortgage, trump vitamin 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. >> but the people angry at you this morning, governor, are saying, wait a minute, 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 ajoourks endorsement. >> i mean, this is, again, why people don't like politics. feels cynical, to flip that way. the only thing in governor
9:10 am
romney's defense i'll say, you can accept an endorsement, but it's something else to endorse somebody to be president of the united states. trump was a businessman at this point. now he wants to lead the country. romney thinks it's his obligation to prevent it. >> legit point. but the thing that matt brought up, at that time, donald trump was full birther. and had claimed that he sent people off to hawaii. they found all this incredible stuff he's never revealed publicly. we'll 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. >> spandau ballet. ohio players as a 5-year-old. >> mine was no doubt. >> that's a great fun.
