than a trump rally, in all fairness? >> reporter: egging on his supporters who believe hillary clinton should be behind bars. >> "lock her up" is right. >> reporter: and without citing any evidence, warning the crowd the race might be rigged. >> we have to make sure that this election is not stolen from us and is not taken away from us. >> reporter: in the wake of trump's lewd comments about women in a new street journal" poll shows clinton opening up a double-digit lead. with nothing to do, the republican nominee now threatening more clinton attacks. >> if they want to release more tapes saying inappropriate things, we'll continue to talk about bill and hillary clinton doing inappropriate things. >> reporter: in ohio late monday, clinton touting her own record crowd and unloading on trump. >> he is an equal opportunity insulter, if there ever was one. >> reporter: and challenging the businessman even further.
situation room, watching the raid that brought osama bin laden to justice, he was hosting "celebrity apprentice." so if he wants to talk about what we've been doing the last 30 years, bring it on! >> reporter: trump's defiance is also leaving many republicans between a rock and a hard place who wrote sticking with him or denouncing him could career-ended consequences. >> i might wright in lindsey graham. he is an old good friend of mine and a lot of people like him. >> reporter: north carolina senator richard burr is standing by trump. >> if we don't allow somebody to be forgiven, who's going to forgive us? >> reporter: but wisconsin senator ron johnson fending off challenger russ feingold is ripping a page from trump's playbook. >> i'm not going to defend donald trump's despicable words. they're indefensible.
feingold with support hillary clinton's actions. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan on monday saying he won't defend trump or campaign for him, suggesting he doesn't think trump can win the white house. trump on twitter dem strafting his disapproval, saying ryan should spend more time on balancing the budget, jobs and illegal immigration, and not waste his time on fighting the republican nominee. with just four weeks to go, trump pausing to show his softer side. >> do you want to go back to them or do you want to stay >> trump. >> reporter: throughout the course of this campaign, donald trump is repeatedly touted that the evangelicals love him. but this morning there is a powerful editorial in "christianity today," a mainstream evangelical magazine that calls on evangelicals not to it be silent on what it describes as trump's blatant immorality. in part, "he wantonly celebrates strongmen and takes every opportunity to humiliate and
capacity to learn. he is, in short, the very embodiment of what the bible calls a fool." matt and savannah, i just reached out to the campaign for any response to that new editorial and haven't yet heard back. >> all right, peter alexander with the very latest this morning, thank you. got steve kornacki in the a the monitor here for us now. i guess the headline of the numbers you are about to show us, what a difference a month and what. a difference a tape with make. >> obviously the 14-point lead, that's double what you saw a i think we blew a gasket on the screen. the big question is what does this mean for the race for 270. you see how close hillary clinton already is to 270. if you're donald trump, here's what's essential for you to turn this thing around. first of all, start in the state of north carolina. this was a rom in i state four years ago. he needs all the romney states as his base. if he can't get north carolina, he's not going to get to 270. if you could get carolina, that's a start. the next most important for him
29 electoral votes. he has fallen behind in florida in the last couple weeks. again, that is not even taking into account any damage from this tape. he is going to have to find a way to win florida. next most important, ohio. this is a state where he had the lead basically through september. started to slip. again, did the tape make the situation worse? got to get ohio. would need to get iowa. would need to get nerva slippage there. we have new hampshire as a toss-up right now. if he could get new hampshire, that would just get him to 270. pennsylvania, colorado is more of a reach. he needs everything to break his way down the stretch. >> because it is a challenging map to start with. we've seen what's been happening in congress. house republicans particularly in turmoil over what to do and how to respond to trump. you've got a figure from our
>> keep in mind, this poll is basically taken at the height of the controversy over the weekend over the tape. but look at this. who do you want to be to control congress? democrats or republicans? it's 49%-42% over the weekend. the significance here, a seven-point advantage for democrats. biggest advantage they've had since the government shutdown in 2013. >> a month ago it was three months. >> join us. we've got mark halperin. paul ryan is almost like saying i'm going to concede the white house, saving the house. >> because paul ryan sees the real prospect of not just a president clinton, a speaker pelosi, senator majority leader, chuck schumer, a democrat from new york, and he cares about the policies that would be enacted. paul ryan does not object to donald trump because he is an outsider or because he is brash. he objects to donald trump because he thinks he's going to lose and because he doesn't believe that he's morally fit to be president. that leaves him in a very tough
does not relish challenging his party's nominee but he does not want to see liberal policies enacted. >> let's talk about donald trump and his approach right now. since late august for a few weeks there, he was gaining ground in the polls. and it is actually emblematic. it used to be people at his rallies would say "lock her up." he'd say, no, no, don't lock her up, let's vote. he's all in with "lock her up" right now. does that suggest this is a new phase or a return to the old donald trump that we saw in the pr the short term after the tape was released friday, to survive. the best way to survive is go to your base. that's one-third of the country and nowhere near enough to win. but you've seized on the thing that's emblematic of what he's doing right now. not trying to tell the majority of the country, "here's what i'd do as president," but simply to rally the people who hate the clintons. >> he's counting on the fact that there are a significant number of people out there who know how to split the ballot,
president but i'm going to go down the ballot and i'm going to vote republican for these house seats. what does history tell us about those voters? >> history tells us we've started to live in a new era in the last decade. the last generation or so. it used to be easy for voters to do that. they'd vote for reagan, and vote for democrats for congress. that's been happening less and less and less. if you're paul ryan, if you're a republican and thinking that way, you're hoping that this idea that donald trump is the exception to every rule we know about american politicsxt >> mark, we have been talking about our polls. steve knows it well. you have an 11-point -- in a four-point race, you have an 11-point gap between these two. these polls have been volatile, this is just one poll. i assume we'll see many more. is there a legitimate and realistic chance for trump to make up that kind of ground in four weeks? >> he'd have to win that third debate, have some more mistakes on the part of hillary clinton.
he had a tough rap before the videotape was released. he still has a very tough route. he needs no margin of error to win every state that's in play. then he still barely gets there. >> briefly, briefly to both of you. i was watching the debate sunday night. you know what i kept thinking? what are we in for over the next four years? no matter who wins, each of these candidates represents the very worst fear of the other party. so come january, february, march, what are we going to be >> i look at it this way. if hillary clinton wins, republicans already think she's weak and they will think it is essentially a fluke. hey, she was faced with one candidate she could possibly beat. i think republicans would go into her presidency smelling weakness. >> there is every reason to be pessimistic -- except paul ryan and some senate democrats share an agenda, tax reform, infrastructure. there is a possibility that out of the rubble of this result we'll see some real activity next year and get the country back on track. >> we can only hope. mark and steve, thank you so
catastrophic flooding from hurricane matthew. it is taking parts of the south by storm. this morning, the waters are still rising in cities and towns near the north carolina coast. thousands of people already rescued, still others trapped. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is in lumberton, that's just south of fayetteville, a city which is under water. miguel, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good blanc. the widespread flooding here was triggered by matthew when more than a foot of rain was all of that rain then poured into creeks and rivers and into low-lying communities, and it is only getting worse. as the town of lumberton filled with water, desperate neighbors fled any way they could. 1,500 needed rescue. the coast guard, the national guard, and fema have all arrived. >> there is a significant problem here, without a doubt. >> reporter: thousands of homes may be swamped and many more are

katie couric, ginsburg did not pull any punches when asked about athletes who have recently protested the national anthem. >> would i arrest them for doing it? no. i think it's dumb and disrespectful. the same -- have the same answer if you ask me about flag burning. i think it is a terrible thing to do, but i wouldn't lock a person up. >> ginsburg also said that athletes such as 49ers within their rights but called the protests arrogant. at least five people were hit, one woman was hospitalized after a pick-up truck drove into a group of protesters in reno, nevada last night. the entire incident was caught on camera. the group was protesting the observance of columbus day. demonstrators had gathered in the intersection under the reno arch when two men in a truck pulled up. the two sides exchanged heated words, then the truck drove through the crowd.

season. >> he is a great player. bummed about the red sox though. moving on to the weather where we still have major flooding in most of the rivers across eastern north carolina. we are especially focused on the lumber river in lumberton, north carolina which, look at this. here is major flooding. it is going to take until sunday morning before we start to see that river level go below major flooding. that's why it is going to be a concern all week long. the good news is there is no additional rain in the forecast for the east coast this that river can continue to recede. we also have coastal flood warnings with this onshore floor. remnants of matthew still producing residual flooding, also some rip currents. elsewhere across the country, things are really quiet. this cold front could trigger a storm or two, and a little bit chilly across the northern plains. temperatures will be 25 degrees below average. that's a look at

that should be celebrated, right? big accomplishment. some, though, think the team should be boycotted. they've only actually played three games, but they're 6-0. it's because the players on their team are so big that other teams in the league are simply forfeiting. they're not even showing up for the game. the archbishop murphy wildcats have nine players over 250 pounds, and parents of players on other teams are worried that their kids are goingo seriously injured while playing them. wildcats coach says his guys just want to play football and it's not fair for other teams to duck out. for the record, the wildcats have outscored their opponents this season 170-0. you think that's fair that they just don't play them? >> no, i think they should play. >> if you are worried about really getting hurt -- >> you should worry in general
>> bigger than the high school team and the junior college league. >> are they really that age? >> apparently they grow them big there. >> the score was 170-0? >> over the three games. >> oh, okay. i was like, my goodness. all right, well speaking of sports, we all know the fable of the race between the tortoise and the hare. remember that story? but, a race in thailand aimed to see what would happen in real life in this competition. here we go. at the start, the hare bolts to a big story. but we know what happens, don't we? hare takes a break, tortoise cruises by. tortoise wins. aesop, author of the fable, was right after all. >> we sped that race up through the tape. >> enormous turtle. >> you don't think that was rigged?
hare? >> they edited it. >> you know what? we really miss your brand of cynicism for these sweet stories. >> i'm all for the tortoise. i think it was fixed. >> you do. all right. sunday night's debate. did you watch? >> of course. >> we all know, it is being called one of the most venomous and combative debates of all time. donald trump and hillary clinton attacking each other for 90 minutes. however, what you didn't see is ended. check it out. ? now i had the time of my life ? ? no i never felt like this before ? ? with passion in our eyes there's no way we could disguise secretly ? ? so we take each other's hand because we seem to understand

probably wouldn't be telling this story right now. >> i personally edited that in for "popstart!." devito saying the monkey eventually calm down and they could do the take with a lot less biting. >> right after he told the story, he sang "i had the time of my life." thank you, meredith. we'll talk to you more in the next half-hour. dylan, how about a check of the going to come pretty close to bermuda possibly as a category 1 hurricane. the northern side of a hurricane is the strongest side, so winds right now are just at 60 miles per hour. but it is expected to strengthen and hit bermuda on that northeast side if it comes close enough. we do have tropical storm warnings and hurricane watches. we could see winds up near 90 miles per hour. then the storm itself moves back out to sea. we are going to see gorgeous weather across the country. in the northeast, a beautiful fall day, nice and crisp, temperatures in the 60s.

a fascinating story yesterday. what do you have today? >> a really big problem today, not necessarily a new one but it has some new twists. if you think of high-profile scandals on campus, there is probably one factor in common. you might be saying to yourself, i've heard this before, maybe i've lived it. kids drink on campus. not a big surprise. but as i said, there are new twists. we'll give you a look at them. from the way students are drinking to how schools are now intervening. >> reporter: september 18th at university, a 17-year-old chugging a bottle of straight vodka. he tells us he was okay afterwards and that he did it on a $5 bet. >> it's like russian roulette with a firearm. drinking a whole bottle of vodka is equivalent of close to 17 drinks. that produces a blood alcohol level that pushes you very close to the lethal dose where it would kill half the population. >> reporter: welcome to a new
on campus. >> stanford is now banning hard liquor at all undergraduate parties on campus. >> reporter: a new wave of crackdowns. stanford in august joining a growing list of schools to ban hard alcohol on campus. alongside at least ten others, including dartmouth last year. the latest response to an age-old problem with new twists. >> you don't eat, you get drunker faster, you'll feel high faster if you couple cocaine with adderall. faster, getting that instant pleasure. >> everyone around me was drinking so heavily and it was just like shot after shot after shot. >> reporter: allison, dana and jan are chicago area college students. >> when i would go in to campus parties, you drank to get drunk, and then whatever happened happened. >> reporter: over the last ten years, the number of young people drinking while underage has declined, but at the same time, the intensity of underage drinking has increased. >> we're seeing over the last 15
room visits, an increase in deaths. we talk to college administrators, they tell us 15 years ago they did not have this number of students being taken to emergency rooms. >> reporter: the head of the national institute on alcohol abuse and alcoholism says young women historically lighter drinkers than men are now drinking more. >> how many of you think there is a new, more extreme form of drinking happening on campus now? >> yeah. >> yes. >> does that seem different from how our parents drank? >> yeah >> reporter: different, they say, in the way today's students are combining binge drinking with other substances. >> are you guys seeing more drinking plus stimulants? >> yeah. i know cocaine is one of -- probably the one that i'm thinking of. >> cocaine. >> yeah. cocaine is huge. >> it is almost normal. >> it is normal, yeah. >> reporter: and different in the way students now combine drinking with other behaviors. >> if i knew that i was going to be drinking at night, then i would not eat beforehand. >> reporter: like starving
raised in a culture of calorie counting and looking to get drunker, faster. it's even got a new buzzword -- drunk arexia. >> do you all feel drunk orexia is real? >> yeah. i was taught if you don't eat before you drink, you're going to get drunker faster. >> and that's good? >> yeah, that's great. >> reporter: a professor at the university of houston recently released a new study of 1,200 students. >> they are starv they are restricting calories, overexercising. as many as 80% of heavy college drinking students were engaging in some of these behaviors. >> 80%. >> up to 80%, yes. >> i almost died last year. i was hospitalized for three weeks. >> i got to such a low and unhealthy weight that my body just couldn't keep up anymore. >> reporter: this collision of trends has left schools scrambling.
problems, something else comes up. >> reporter: the latest so-called fix, those alcohol bans. but while the list of schools with bans is growing, it is not clear yet if they're effective. do these college alcohol bans work? >> the truth is we really don't know. >> i was an ra who wrote up plenty of people who were drinking in the dorms. i don't think it did anything. >> for me, it was like i'm going to do it somewhere else. >> i don't remember ever going into like what happens if you do was growing up. >> is there a risk these bans can just push the problem underground? >> it certainly is. colleges should be cautious before they just hit the ban button. >> if you tell someone they can't do something, they're going to do it. they're going to find a way to do it. it can end up being just a horrible tragedy. >> the experts we spoke with say it is not that alcohol bans are a bad idea per se, they just have to be part of a larger,
drinking. the students we spoke with agree. that's their sentiment here. >> they say it keeps changing and every time we come up with a remedy, it changes. that's why the core issue of the root problem is what needs to be addressed. >> everyone wants a quick fix. you saw last week with the answer to sexual assaults, it is not a quick fix. >> three kids, one of them getting close to this age. it is terrifying. >> this whole series is giving parents a but just open conversation is the answer to so many of these subjects. i'll see you tomorrow on a particularly painful and explosive segment. we have all these moms outside with their painted bellies. it is all for a really good cause. more about that in a minute. and guy fieri is making a
we're back now, 8:30 on a tuesday morning, it is the 11th day of october, 2016. a little chill in the air. and that means we're going to open up rink here on plaza down in rock center. you can see some young people already out there giving it a twirl on a tuesday morning. you know, we should skate more. >> you know what? it's going to happen this year. >> this year. i always threaten that we're going to take everybody skating just for fun. >> can we give a shout out to bruno mars for this song? what's it? "24-karat --" >> so good.
we need bruno mars on our plaza. >> one of the best concerts i've ever been to. bruno mars. >> this year marks the rink's 80th anniversary. we're going to be celebrating all the way through easter with the nice people that will be there. >> with our skating routine. >> i'm telling you. look at that. just ahead, we've got more with meredith. the story behind her award-winning new documentary. then justin timberlake opens up about how he's changed since becoming a dad. and what made him as nervous as life. >> interesting. and why are all of these moms-to-be getting artwork on their bellies in the cold? the woman behind spanx, sara blakely, will be here to explain. and guy fieri has a meal that you can probably make today. >> one woman who got the "today" logo, we told her it is not coming off.
weather? >> it is chilly in the northeast today. this morning at east. it will turn into a beautiful fall day later on this afternoon, temperatures in the mid 60s. warming to the 70s in the great lakes, even 80s down south. we've got a cold front though, and back behind it, it feels awfully chilly. in montana today, highs only in the 30s. as it moves eastward, we'll see a few scattered storms and a better chance tomorrow. 40s for the high through minneapolis-st. paul tomorrow. we are waiting on a storm system that will move in for end of the week in the pacific northwest. enjoy sunshine in the 60s while you get it. in the southwest, 80s and90s. in north carolina, several rivers are still above major flood stage.
>> and that's your latest forecast. matt? >> dylan, thank you very much. now the real reason that meredith iit morning. she is an executive producer of a new documentary called "tower." this tells the story of america's first mass school shooting at the university of texas, happened back in 1966. it focuses on the people whose lives changed that day. >> i just remember looking up at the sky. it was so blue.
is it. >> hey, meredith. good morning. >> good morning. >> start with the look of it. because i think that's going to catch some people off-guard. >> the animation. it caught me off guard when my associate came to me and said there is this amazing filmmaker and he wants to tell the story of what happened at the first mass shooting on an american campus using animation. i said that's nuts. why would you use animation? she said trust me, it will work. it is so effective. >> it draws you in. >> that's right. >> you can't take your it. a lot of people are not going to be familiar with this story, even though it is talked about as the first mass school shooting in this country. 1966. >> 50 years ago. >> what did we learn about what's going on today by looking back? >> you know, it is interesting. the filmmaker here, the reason he wanted to tell this story, he's from austin. he never learned about it. it is at if this happened, it was horrific, and then everybody wanted to forget. and he wanted to focus on the
talk about the victims, the police, the students and the heroes. hopefully to open up a dialogue. because the sad thing now is that these are so commonplace that they're horrific, but we're almost used to it. and we need to talk. >> what was interesting is that some of the people you -- or lot of the people you deal with in this story had never stayed in contact -- >> none of them. >> -- since 1966. and now the reconnecting and understanding how this has impacted all of them. >> yeah. for them, it's been very cathartic. and also you'll see -- because you meet these people 50 years later. this is still with them. it still haunts them. so for them to finally connect and be able to talk about it was healing for them. that's the whole idea behind the film. that if we can talk about what's going on because it is going on on a regular basis in this country, maybe we can begin to solve this problem.
because i remember all too well we covered together -- we went down to virginia tech in the wake of the mass shooting there. and i remember on the plane on the way back and in the car when we were driving around there how much it impacted both of us. but it stuck with you as well. >> it definitely stuck with me, especially there was a candlelight vigil. i remember being with the students and one of the students coming up to me and saying, can i just -- will you just hold me? because their parents weren't there to be with them at such a terrible time. that tohi that. >> i think we should mention that the documentary does not take a political point of view. >> no, none. >> this isn't a gun control or gun rights message. >> not at all. >> what do you want people to take away? >> i want people to go see it and don't go alone. go with somebody else. to tweet to me, #towertogether what they thought about it. did it start a dialogue? what we really want to do is start a conversation through
pro gun or anti-gun. it is really about honoring these people, seeing what has happened in the course of 50 years, not only to them but in this country. and hopefully, together we can maybe change the craziness that's happening. >> i hope people do go see it. it is called "tower" and it is in select theaters. great to see you. coming up, justin timberlake opens up about his rise to the top and how being a dad has changed him. but first, this is "today"
trump brag about sexual assault. then portman panicked -and scrambled to save himself. history will
judge rob portman a coward. what will we do? ted strickland: i'm ted strickland and i approve this message. we are back inside, 8:39, with a new place that fans of justin timberlake can catch the music superstar. talking about netflix. >> that's right. he's got a new concert film out, called "justin timberlake and the tennessee kids." willie caught up with him at the

this is what you do. this is justin timberlake, so this is easy for him. >> of course. of course. but, there is a little something more personal about the way jonathan captured us. i feel really proud that the people that i shared the stage with, that they're so important to me and they're every bit the star of this movie. >> jonathan calls you a funky frank sinatra. >> he said that? >> he said that. >> okay. >> he said imagine sinatra if h >> sinatra could dance. >> but i'm looking at you up there in your tuxedo working with john than demmey and thinking how far you've come since you burst on the scene in your early days. do you stop at think at moments like this, man, look at the journey? >> yeah, man, every day. i mean -- yeah. every day. while it's happening. now more so than ever, while it is actually happening. because the moment and all of
is like the best part. you know? that's going to be the part you remember the most. >> reporter: even more than the music, timberlake is savoring being a dad to his son with wife jessica beale. >> are you finding as you write new music, justin, that having a 16, 17-month-old at home changes the way you look at music? >> it changes everything. you literally are just like -- wake up, look in the mirror and go, i have no idea what doing. >> that's right. >> yeah. it changes everything. i would have never written a song like "can't stop the feeling." ? can't stop the feeling ? ? so just dance dance dance ?? >> i don't know that it was directly inspired to be something that my son could listen to of mine, because there is a lot of music he can't listen to of mine. at least not yet. you are being looking at me, but, oh, yeah, just wait. i feel like you're giving me the

see things you never got to see. >> especially when they are putting on such a big show. we see it with beyonce, with bruno mars. with justin. he's saying, it is not just me. it is the 30 other people on the stage. >> i remember scorsese did the stones and you get to see what keith is doing while mick is -- yeah. >> you sure you weren't at oldchella? >> the thought did cross my mind. >> i'm so justin timberlake and the tennessee kids premiers on netflix tomorrow. just ahead, why the woman who brought us spanx is now celebrating the bump. but first, this is "today" on

replacements, don't use the phone. that came out this morning. samsung and the consumer product safety commission telling customers to power them down and return them. the new replacement of 7s are also catching fire and no word on why this happened. remember, this was the southwest flight. this guy had one in his pocket, burned through his pocket, burned through the floor of the plane, the fuselage. but i think the sales put the samsung at roughly 1 in 1 million of the original ones out there that are under this recall. that's a lot of phones. >> how is that going to work as a company? >> are people just turning them off? is imagine if that's your phone and you're not getting on a plane, your phone seems fine. and you don't have time to go to the store to get a new -- whatever. i mean are people actually turning them off? >> i don't know. the guy on that southwest flight said it was off and it was, according to him, one of the new 7s and it still did this. to your point, like what does a company do? and are people going to just say, this is nothing and go on
