7:00 am
trump is in a very dark place. >> the american dream is dead. >> reporter: looking to revive his own campaign, bush just released this bilingwall ad. declaring hispanics an integral part of the american dream. bush's mexican-born wife columba who rarely speaks publicly speaks out. >> we have celebrations with the family. we keep our traditions. you know, at the end it's just that, you know, faith, friends and family. >> reporter: and in another sign he may be nearing a run, vice president joe biden for the first time attacked trump directly at a reception honoring hispanics. >> trump and that stuff you're hearing on the other team and not just -- this isn't about democrat/republican. it's about a sick message. >> reporter: a lot at stake for these republicans tonight. of course, debate prep during the day and how will some that have relax for john kasich, a
7:01 am
trip to the gym. marco rubio will enjoy some time with his wife and daughters and carly fiorina's camp, matt and savannah, says she needs an she will be fine. >> we'll be watching. >> reince priebus is the chairman of the republican national committee. good to see you, good morning. we have apparently lost our signal to mr. priebus. we'll get him back in just a second. >> got nicolle wallace here, a former republican strategist and worked for president george w. bush as his communications director. good morning. >> good morning. >> as we await mr. priebus, if you're in his shoes and thinking i'm the head of the republican party and this is my bunch and donald trump is blowing away the >> yeah. >> do you think the mission tonight for any candidate not named trump is go after trump? >> well, i think they all have to run their race and do what's comfortable for them. i think that what's interesting to me is the only two humans that have laid a glove on donald trump are carly fiorina with her attack, her counterpunch to him was tougher than any of trump's
7:02 am
counterpunch from anybody in the said look at that face and she put up a great ad with all the beautiful faces and the two sons of ronald reagan saying we know ronald reagan and donald trump you are not ronald reagan. so far no one on stage has laid a glove. >> this is round two. the next round doesn't come for five or six weeks. that's an efernt in politics, and some of these campaigns will wither on the vine in that time. who is tonight do or die for? >> i think tonight, and i agree with you, this is the last two-tiered debate night for the republicans. i think next time they will all be able to fit on one stage but i think tonight is do or die for the establishment wolf pack, if you will, the group of former governors, who are really struggling when compared as a group to carly fiorina, ben carson and donald trump who are viewed as outsiders. >> do you at this point feel like there's a decent chance that donald trump could actually be the republican nominee, that he could emerge from this process a winner? >> listenings i've said for a long time that republican primaries are better television
7:03 am
than the kardashians and i'm going to stick by that prediction this is going to be a roller coaster. this is going to be exciting. anything can happen. at the end of the day though for the same reasons that the reagans son that donald trump will not inherit the mantle of ronald reagan, the strains of narcissim, if you will, making it all about himself and talking about how great he is not where i think the republican primary voters could land. could they, absolutely but i don't think it will happen. >> have you figured out the dynamic, you look at the polling, three candidates with no experience in politics or governing anything. >> right. >> no time in congress or in governors' offices as you just mentioned. >> right. >> and those tree candidates, trump, carson and fiorina, have 54% of the total support. why is that? >> i think that what trump has tapped into perfectly and what carson and fiorina are starting to talk about more is the abject disgust with politics as usual in washington, and it is -- it is at the other folks' peril to fail to hear that.
7:04 am
i think what trump's doing perfectly is listening to the sentiment, but at the end of the day we don't always vote for the person that echoes our anger. we vote for the person that channels our hopes for future and so far trump is not that guy. much. trying to get our signal up with chairman priebus, get back to, if we can. good to have you. meantime, another did you have day on tap for crews out west fighting mass f-wildfires in california and dealing with in utah. 16 people killed and four others still missing. two reports beginning with nbc's ron mott. ron, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. the death toll from these flash floods has left this region in a state of shock, and the aftermath here is pretty eye-opening. take a look at the scene behind me, this white car crushed, wedged into between mountains of muddy debris and we're learning this morning just a bit more about some of those who were killed. >> oh, that van. oh, there's two vehicles. >> reporter: shortly after one of three survivors fled this
7:05 am
scary scene in search of help as floodwaters threatened. >> there goes the van. oh, my goodness. oh, dear. it went over the thing. oh, no. >> reporter: the rapids moved in. >> oh, no. >> reporter: sweeping at least a dozen of one family to their deaths, three sisters and their children, one still missing this morning and feared lost as well. >> my name is joseph jessup and this here is my son joseph jessup. my family and my friends' family were swept away in this flash flood. >> reporter: joseph jessup, the eldest son of one of the mothers, couldn't reach help in time to save his family. according to distant relatives estranged from the polygamist second once controlled by warren jeffs serving a life sentence for sexual assault. >> we trust in him to heal our wounded heart at this time. i would not like to take any questions at this time. thank you. >> reporter: officials say the
7:06 am
three sisters, naomi, della and josephine, seen if these family portraits, were stopped short of the initial flood when waters engulfed them from behind. many in this close-knit religious community stood watch throughout the day as cleanup crews cleared much degree-clogged road and rescuers continue to look for the last missing person. utah governor gary herbert took to twitter to express his sorrow over dual tragedies including four people found dead at nearby zion national park where three remaund up accounted for into the night and they were warned to be mindful of flooding threats. >> be careful. this area does flash flood and it doesn't take that much. >> reporter: 25 members of the utah national guard have been called in to help, and, unfortunately, for a third straight day the weather is going to be a factor. thunderstorms again in the forecast. matt, savannah, back to you. >> all right, ron mott. ron, thank you very much. >> now to the wildfire raging north of san francisco threatening thousands of homes there. nbc's national correspondent miguel almaguer is on the scene
7:07 am
again for us this morning. miguel, what's the latest. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. here in the mountains there aren't many roads in or out of this community. we were on one when we hit smoke, then flames. we hunkered down with firefighters in a safety zone when this blaze just exploded. this is the eye of a firestorm, a blow torch whipping in multiple directions. on our way home on the only way out this is what we found. you could hear the fury. and feel the intensity. crews tell us these flames are shooting at 40, 50 miles an hour in some places, and even here in the vehicle you can feel the heat. we were with firefighters when the wave of flames exploding how quickly can this fire take off and jump from hill to hill? >> in a matter of minutes. >> reporter: it looked like a furnace and felt like an oven. crews rolled into the mouth of the infern ore as we retreated to their safety zone.
7:08 am
could you see this blaze was out of control, and could you hear this monster feeding on these drought-stricken mountains. >> sounds like that sucking sound that people describe as a jet plane. >> reporter: when the fire torches in these trees, the immediate concern isn't intense. it's the embers. they can travel for miles. those embers and hot ash sent crews scrambling. a vehicle catching fire. one firefighter called this biblical, conditions few will ever see. because we were on a two-lane road with experienced firefighters, danger was as minimal as it can be in a hot zone like this. fortunately there were no homes in the area. ultimately this blaze ran into an area that had burned just a few years ago so it burned itself out. savannah. >> incredible to see. miguel almaguer, thank you so much. >> natalie joins us now with some new steps to deal with an ongoing crisis in europe. >> yeah, guys. it's sad news. hungary taking even more extreme measures to keep the migrants
7:09 am
out of the country with a new place. police rounded up far fewer people on its side of the serbian border on tuesday. nbc's chief foreign correspondent rich engel is in hungary with the latest on the humanitarian crisis. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. yesterday there were dozens of people who were arrested while trying to cross this fence. today hardly any simply because they are not getting through. the fence is holding. it is being patrolled 24 hours a day by police and by soldiers. some people are backed up in serbia which is right on the other side of this fence, but already they are looking for new routes to sweden and germany. they are trying to go around hungary, and the new routes that are emerging through croatia and a land route that goes between turkey and greece. so this country, hungary, has dammed this river of migrants, and like a river they are finding a ways around it. natalie? >> all right. richard engel in hungary for us. thank you, richard.
7:10 am
all eyes will be on the federal reserve today, and the big question will it or won't it raise interest rates for the first time in nine years? the fed meeting today and tomorrow, and now that the job market is considered essentially recovered, many economists say it is time to start edging from a record low near zero towards normal rates. others argue though that many other factors such as china's sputtering economy raised some serious concerns. a decision will be announced thursday. salmonella-tainted cucumbers imported from mexico have now sickened at least 418 people in 31 states. health officials say the outbreak of food-borne illness has sent 91 people to hospitals and caused two deaths. most people recover without treatment, but the illness can be serious for young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems. some frightening moments in new jersey on tuesday when a wrong. escape artist spencer horseman was attempting to get out of a
7:11 am
water-filled plexiglass box during a promotional event for an upcoming show with chrissagel, but after being underwater for about two and a half minutes he couldn't get that final lock open so rescuers saw him struggling and lowered him out. he was taken to the hospital. his condition is unknown but he was responsive at the time. now, you may recall this isn't the first time that horseman has failed to complete the stunt. back in june he wasn't able to free himself at the foxwood casino in connecticut and lost consciousness for some time and had to be freed by stage hands. a home run usually cause for some celebration, sometimes fireworks when a player sends one over the fence, but you don't typically see fireworks when the other team hits one, right? that is until tuesday night in cleveland. take a look. >> into the corner and alex rios has his second home run of the trip. kansas city's alex rios hitting that solo shot home run and the
7:12 am
man in charge of the fireworks in cleveland had an itchy trigger finger and send or the pyrotechnics display and the hometown crowd started booing and the poor fireworks guy clearly embarrassed by the whole situation hiding his face with his hat. >> you know, what he's going to love living in kansas city, he really is. beautiful at this time of year. >> meanwhile, the indians, not so happy. >> you had one job. >> natalie, thank you very much. >> dylan is here. looks like an umbrella day for some of our friends down in florida. >> in florida, yes, where it has been an umbrella day which seems like for the past several weeks. it's eastern florida that is still under a drought, so it's eastern florida that's actually going to get most of the rain. we've got a combination of low-level moisture streaming in off the atlantic, upper level winds streaming in off the gulf of mexico and that combination means pockets of heavier rain for the next several day and we do have an area of high pressure sitting off to the north. part of the reason why the rest of the country is enjoying some pretty nice weather. this is going to keep all of these showers and storms down
7:13 am
across florida, and we could end up with perhaps some flash flooding within some of these heavier downpours. look at how much rain we can see from miami all the way up to jacksonville. as much as two to four, maybe even five inches of rain so that will certainly help with the deficit we've seen since june. that's a look at the weather across the good weather stretch continues. in the 60s and 50s this morning. heading to the upper 80s this afternoon. warmer than yesterday but the
7:14 am
humidity stays low with a full day of sunshine. upper 60s in town. maybe patchy fog primarily north and west and more sunshine again tomorrow. a high of 87 tomorrow. middle 80s on friday. bright and sunny. saturday, 83 with sunshine. few clouds on sunday. still nice. clouding over next week and cooling off. 76 monday, 75 by tuesday. and that's your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan, thank you. now to that shooting that shocked and saddened the country. a television reporter and photographer gunned down while they reported live on the air. well, now for first time the woman they were interviewing who was also shot is speaking out and nbc's hallie jackson has the story this morning. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. millions of people have seen those images of vicky gardner standing with allison parker second before a gunman opened fire on live tv. gardner has also seen that video and said she had to watch it to move on but is still not ready to return to the scene.
7:15 am
vicky gardner remembers every moment from this interview. >> i saw movement and then gunfire, lots and lots of gunfire. >> reporter: the shooting airing live on wdbj's morning news, a single image of the gunman captured on camera. >> i didn't know where he was. i felt the next shot -- i knew the next shot he was going to shoot me in the head because that's what he was doing. world goes in front of your -- in front of you, and it did real fast, and i said i'm ready. i'm ready. >> reporter: instead the shooter fired a bullet through gardner's back as she lay on the ground in the fetal position. gardner tells fox news' greta van susteren she new reporter alison parker and camera man adam ward had been shot. >> the only thing i could think of was play dead. i was just concentrating on being so still that he wouldn't shoot me again, and then it was quiet.
7:16 am
>> reporter: at home her husband watched live, telling our willie geist after the shooting. >> immediately tried to call her on her cell phone. >> reporter: after the video cut away to show a stunned anchor on set, tim gardner waited 15 frantic minutes before his wife called from the ambulance. >> i spoke with vicky for about three, four minutes while she was being transported to the -- the emergency room at roanoke memorial. she explained what had happened to her and that she didn't know how she survived but she did and that she loved me. >> reporter: that day as doctors rushed gardner into surgery at the hospital, the gunman, a former reporter at the news station, killed himself. >> we have a long way to go on understanding what would possess somebody to have that muchage sneer but instead of anger, she and others in roanoke are choosing to focus on healing. >> it's good to be back, folks. >> reporter: parker's boyfriend, a news anchor, returning to his
7:17 am
position on air this week. >> i know the answer to what we all must do. it is to profess love, not hate, to love one another and to love strangers. >> reporter: gardner still struggling to understand why she was spared. >> my heart just goes out to alison and adam, and they are so young. why spare me and take them? >> reporter: gardner says she's hoping to create a lasting tribute to alison and to adam. as for the investigation, police tell me overnight they are working to come up with information to share with other agencies that might help prevent shootings like this in the future. in the meantime, they say they are working with their community to try to regain some peace of mind and to heal. that will, of course, take a lot of time. guys. >> well, she has a lot of strength and spirit. hallie jackson, thank you very much. coming up, a disturbing scene, a high school football player slamming a helmet into an opposing player's head. the criminal investigation that he's now facing, but first, this is "today" on nbc.

7:31 am
kremlin says what phone call? it's the human side john. his concerts sell out, so maybe, just maybe, he could help heal this kind of hatred. gay rights protesters attacked in moscow. i tried to persuade president said over the weekend. talk to him. i said, come on, this is not -- gay people are not the problem here. >> reporter: then a stunning development. on elton's instagram page a big putin pictur thank you to president vladimir putin for reaching out and speaking via telephone with me today, the spinninger posted. i look forward to meeting with you face-to-face to discuss lgbt incredible. actually maybe too incredible. back in the ussr >> reporter: phone call didn't happen says kremlin spokesman. i don't know who spoke to elton john. wait, what? was it some kind of prank call? if so, elton may not be laughing.

7:40 am
>> reporter: varun kohli has worked in computer security for ten years and a vp with skycure which has released a list of top tourist attractions surrounded by potentially vicious wi-fi networks. first on the list, no square, times square, new york. each red pin represents a network that could be risky. in a two square block area you've got ten suspicious >> that's true. when we did the study we found hundreds of bad networks just around the top tourist destinations. >> reporter: one big washing sign, says varun the word free. if you see free wi-fi advertised be wary. nearly one out of ten suspicious networks calls itself free so we asked tourists in times square how they pick a wi-fi. >> i'm not too picky. i just choose one and if it works i'm like whoo. >> we get to the hotel and use the hotel's wg fi but if i'm delsperate i would risk it. > reporter: to prove how easily hackers can gain access to phones, varun hacked mine in

7:42 am

regular major and will have holarships training side by side with future military officers to produce the new kinds of leaders. we've created a new academy, new environment for them. >> tom, how many times in the past have we talked about only really respecting people who put their money where their mouth is? dr. crowe is putting money where his mouth, is personally donated more than $1 million to this academy. >> really by all accounts i'm not afraid of embarrassing him but everybody regards him as one of the two or three greatest university presidents that we have in this country because he is so dynamic. the other piece of it is that we want to have the private sector have an engagement with these people in the public service academy as well so they emerge with it from real job skills. >> tom has written so much about the greatest generation, doctor, and all they did to contribute to the betterment of the world, and i think sometimes millennials don't get a fair shake when it comes to our accomplish. would you agree with that? >> i think that's true.
8:33 am
when we look at the millennials and particularly the millennial nets, people born after '94, we see them as wanting their lives to have purpose and what we're doing is expanding their opportunity to have purpose and to be of service and building an academy, adding to america's capabilities to produce new leaders. >> real quickly, when you give that speech and you talk to them about exporting the ideals of our country and their civic and civilian responsibility, what kind of response do you get? >> i get in every kind of audience, conservative, liberal, young, old, corporate, standing i'm quite s nned by it. i describe it as a big idea that can bring the country together. this is not a partisan idea, matt. this is an idea that everyone can rally around during a campaign in which the country seems to be broken in a lot of parts. >> you may get standing ovations but you may not realize it because you're also tom brokaw. that probably contributes a little bit, too. >> i don't think it has much. if i was mattite be out there on the golf course with jordan spieth. >> we can all do that.

>> benicio del toro, good morning. >> good morning. >> this is an intense film, and there are good guys and bad guys but you don't actually know who is who for quite a bit. >> yeah. well, i think that's -- that's the point of the film. you're compelled by -- by -- you understand what they are doing but then you don't -- you're not so sure if their tactics are the right ones. >> from almost your first scene i felt like watching, it like i liked you but i didn't know -- i wasn't ready to commit because i thought there's a good chance that you're going to be eally terrible. does that mean mission accomplished? >> yeah, yeah. he's the type of guy that he's going to win no matter what, you know. >> you're the kind of actor i would assume who just has the pick of scripts right now. are you somebody who gets a script and it's love at first sight, that this is a movie that i want to do, or do you pull it over and let it marin ate and think about it in. >> usually when i read a script i can tell if it's original and
8:38 am
that this one was very original i was motivated to go the next step which would be meet the director and the director of bo"sicario," his enthusiasm, his point of view, his vision just was contagious, and i said yes. and then the cast josh brolin and emily blunt, great. >> it's amazing. the movie, of course, deals with the war against cartels, the war on drugs. this is an a a that many of your movies have dealt with, but you've played different perspectives. you've been a recovering addict in one film, an addict in one film, a good cop and this mysterious creature. >> i've played all -- most of the angles. >> yeah. >> i think, and this one is diffs erent because this one is the guy that -- that is bent on revenge and he's going to do anything he can to be on the good side and that's -- that's a journey. >> emily blunt is coming on tomorrow. she's in the movie as well. she says, by the way, that you're amazing to work with, and we asked her were you

9:05 am
>> and i get this, i get this. >> you want another button because you don't want to like it, right so mark zuckerberg in a q&a announced they are now discussing what could be a sort of button, like the dislike button, although he's not calling it that. didn't say what it was going to be but here's how he explained it. take a look. >> whether it's something in current events like the refugee crisis that touches you or if a family member passed away, then it may not feel comfortable to like that post, but -- but your friends and people want to be able to express that they understand and that they relate to you so i do think that it is important to give people more options than just like as a quick way to emote and share with their feeling on a post. >> definitely. it's time. >> great definition. >> yeah. as posts get more and more broad in their range and people are opening up to social networks and putting more out there, it's more than just a like. i think the emotional spectrum

so close your eyes and use your imagination and now open up your eyes, just so life like. we've got motion and everything in here. this is incredible. we've got lots of rain down through florida. keep in mind we could see some flash flooding because some of these downpours could end up producing perhaps up to two to three inches of rain, and over the course of the next 72 hours we could see even more rain, perhaps as much as five inches, especially across the eastern coast of florida where moisture is streaming in. this high pressure system up here is sort of blocking the whole thing so it is just another sunny day out there, warming up a bit. high temperature today, 87 warmer than yesterday. humidity stays low, so it is still pretty comfortable. mainly clear skies, patchy fog north and west of town. 68 in the city, 50s distant suburbs, north and west. more sunshine tomorrow, and warm temperatures, high of 87 middle 80s with sunshine friday.

9:31 am
couldn't make heads or tails about what was going on and that's honestly what the system relies on, that people just can't fathom what's happening, so rick is somebody who actually studied it and figured out the ins and outs of it and figured out how to use it to his rang. >> not only studied it and i saw the film last night and thought it was amazing, i'm a florida resident myself. i was there when the crash happened and communities turned into ghost towns and it seemed as if all the scenes in this movie which are very movie that people are getting evicted from their house and rick is so jaded and cold and systematic in his approach, how -- >> i don't want to give anything away, but the movie starts with about the worst result you could possibly imagine, you know, so it's -- if that's where he starts off. yeah, you know, it's funny because i spent time with somebody who was in a very similar situation to rick, and like rick says in the movie, a lot of these brokers, they just started off wanting to sell homes. they didn't anticipate that this was going to happen, and it just kind of got thrust into their
9:32 am
laps by, you know, the banks and the regulatory committees. they said, oh, would you mind doing this, too. we know you really want to sell homes but we just happen to have a lot of foreclosures. rick's attitude is if he woke up tomorrow morning and said, you know what, i'm not going to do this anymore, i can't take it then they would just send somebody else so he's really in a way hopefully -- hoping to take responsibility for it. >> the underlying theme in the movie, across many characters in the movie they had that choice of sink or swim an they choose to swim. i don't want to give the movie away at all but truly riveting and truly amazing movie. thought you did fantastic, coming out next friday. >> yes, sir. >> i think everybody should see this, a very realistic look at a real crisis. i was there for all of it. i thought it was amazing and i thought you did fantastic. >> thank you very much. >> i'm going to lighten things up just a little bit because we've got to clear something up with our word on the web game that we like to play so you can clear up something that you put out on the internet. >> this.
9:33 am
>> yes. >> the fins. >> okay. >> so you said your character general zod in the batman versus superman film will not only be a ghost but have flippers. can you explain? >> well, honestly, that was just kind of me having a life because the weird thing about this is that you do a movie like that and the studio begs you not to say anything like that and then people constantly ask you about it, so there's this tension there, and every once in a while i just let off some steam by making up something silly. >> rattled the cage a little bit. >> increases the anticipation. >> we love that. >> they are also going to make an aquaman pretty soon so i was trying to make it so my character could segue into guy. >> career move. big fan of your work, particularly this movie. it's really strong.
