7:00 am
we don't want to keep winning. we can't stand it. and i'm going to say, i don't care. we're going to keep winning. we're going to make america great again! >> on the democratic side, hillary clinton reenergized after winning in nevada. with two more contests this week and super tuesday eight days away, is there anything left that could shake up this race? facing justice. the uber driver suspected in the michigan shooting rampage that killed six people and injured two others, due in court today. now, we're learning he may have picked up fares in the middle of his alleged shooting spree. >> i kind of jokingly said to the driver, you're not the shooter, are you? >> this morning, what witnesses are saying about their interactions that night. high powered pressure. the head of the fbi urges apple to help hack into the phone of one of the san bernardino shooters. why he says everyone needs to take a deep breath.
7:01 am
a 106-year-old woman fulfills a lifelong dream, visiting the president and first lady. >> i thought i'd never get into the white house. >> still dancing at 106. >> meet, greet and dance that has the internet on fire today, monday, february 22nd, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning. welcome to "today." wow, it is a monday, isn't it? >> do i make you nervous, savannah. >> i'm getting used to you. matt is off this morning. you were in south carolina all weekend. >> donald trump with a ten point win coming on the heels of a double digit win in new hampshire. the question now, can he be stopped in the republican primary? >> not surprisingly, the presidential race is our top
7:02 am
donald trump and hillary clinton making their cases as the clear leaders in their races. >> as we said, trump picking up his second straight victory saturday. a decisive win in south carolina. marco rubio edged out ted cruz for second place. clinton bouncing back from her defeat in new hampshire to senator bernie sanders in nevada. >> the democratic primary in south carolina is on saturday. we're just eight days from super tuesday contest in 12 states. that could cement the race on both sides. we have complete coverage at this key moment in the campaign. beginning with nbc's hallie jackson in las vegas. good morning. >> good morning. this morning, the center of attention in this race has shifted here to nevada, where donald trump will hold a couple of rallyies today. history on his side right now. no republican has won new hampshire and south carolina and lost the nomination.
7:03 am
his closest competitors and the establishment try to slow him down. >> reporter: on his victory lap in atlanta -- >> oh, that's so much better. >> reporter: -- donald trump didn't mind the dark. >> get the lights off. turn off the lights! turn off the lights! >> reporter: demanding the lights stay off after the protester pulled the plug. trump fresh off his lights-out win in south carolina. >> such a beautiful victory. such a conclusive victory. >> reporter: trump looking ahead to another first place finish tomorrow in nevada, perhaps unstoppable now. though his rivals are trying to. >> if you believe we need a strong contrast with the democrats, then we welcome you aboard our team. >> reporter: but cruz's disappointing third place finish in south carolina may mean more pressure to perform in the super tuesday primary. cruz hoping for a two-man race
7:04 am
>> rubio! >> reporter: pulling in his biggest crowd yet in tennessee, facing a new line of attacks from trump, who is refusing to rule out questions about rubio's eligibility for the white house. the florida senator, born in the united states, his parents born in cuba. >> i'm going to spend zero time on his interpretation of the constitution with regards to eligibility. >> reporter: key to rubio's strategy, staying in the race long enough to bring together the establishment wing. >> we're still going to have our primary. it's a longsmaller field this morning than it was. >> reporter: the end of the road for jeb bush. the end of the line for now for his family's presidential political dynasty. >> tonight, i am suspending my campaign. yeah, yeah. thank you. >> reporter: after that emotional speech, the scramble for his supporters and his donors. and new this morning, the rnc launching a fresh attack ad
7:05 am
performance in south carolina in 2008. >> the clintons and the african-americans in this country might be irreparable. >> the rnc looking at the general election as the head of the party reiterates the promise to back whoever the nominee is. cruz and rubio fighting it out, trying to prove it won't be trump. expect to see over the next few days more endorsements come out, with rubio knocking down reports that mitt romney will back him soon. guys? >> hallie jackson, thank you. as we mentioned, south carolina is the next battleground on the democratic side, where hillary clinton hopes to build on her big win over sanders in nevada. kristen welker is following those campaigns. >> good morning. hillary clinton is focused on fund raising in the los angeles area.
7:06 am
are reenergized after heroin win in nevada. >> reporter: clinton had a big win in nevada over the weekend. >> some may have doubted us but we never doubted each other. >> reporter: carried to victory by union workers and african-americans bho ss who turned out in force. 76% of blacks in nevada choosing her. >> this one is for you. >> reporter: clinton posting this photo to instagram, savoring the victory with her husband. trying to gain ground with minorities, sanders courted african-americans at a baptist church in south carolina sunday. later, urged his supporters to fight on. >> south carolina has the opportunity to make american history, and i hope you will. >> reporter: while sanders won 72% of young voters in nevada and had a strong showing among latinos, the loss raises questions about his ability to win more diverse areas, like many of the super tuesday states.
7:07 am
>> the voter turnout is not as high as i wanted. i said over and over again, we'll do well when young people, working class people come out. >> reporter: both candidates looking forward. clinton commanding a double digit lead in south carolina, where her ground game is in full swing. >> i want to ask if you plan on voting for hillary clinton. >> reporter: aides close to sanders acknowledged the slim chances in south carolina. sanders is sharpening his focus in places he feels confident, like colorado, massachusetts and michigan. sunday night, both campaigns took aim at the republican front runner. >> we don't need to make america great again. it never stopped being great. but we do need to make america whole again. >> you want a candidate who is going to defeat donald trump. you're looking at that candidate. >> this morning, the clinton campaign is disputeing that sanders won the latino vote, as
7:08 am
arguing that clinton trounced sanders in areas that are latino. the sanders campaign is calling it spin. this underscores the importance of the latino vote, as super tuesday approaches and as this race heats up. willie and savannah? >> kristen welker looking at the democratic side. thanks. let's get analysis. nicolle wallace served as an adviser to the mccain-palin campaign, and mark is the managing editor of bloomberg politics. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> nicolle, the question, is donald trump unstoppable? he seems to have the momentum and has two big wins under his belt. >> flip it the other way around. can ted cruz or marco rubio win? i think it's a harder question to answer. it would be defying decades of political history to seize the nomination in marco rubio's case, after coming in third, fifth and second, and ted cruz's case, he hasn't won since iowa.
7:09 am
in my view, it is increasingly unlikely. >> mark, the argument from a lot of republicans is, if you get donald trump in a one on one fight, it's the way to beat him. i guess the question for me is, which of the candidates, whether marco rubio, ted cruz or john kasich, gives up the fight at this point, given how well place slot? >> none of them give it up. all of them think that somehow, trump can be eventually stopped when it's one on one. you've got the contest here tomorrow, and then super tuesday a week from tomorrow. i think it's increasingly -- as nicolle said -- increasingly hard to come up with a scenario where any of the three can stop him, unless they get one on one. republicans are talking about unorthodox supporters. maybe try to simply stop trump from getting a majority of the delegates. all three scenarios are, at this point, not just unlikely, but may be improbable, unless something changes.
7:10 am
maybe trump are will falter or something strange will happen. if you look at political history, trump is in a commanding position. >> mark, does the calendar favor him, the states coming up next and the fact they turn to winner takes ss all in a little while? >> winner take off is a way that could hurt trump. say in ohio or florida, home state politician could win a winner take off state and get momentum. trump, both demographically and geographically, doesn't have weaknesses. a guy that can win new hampshire decisively and south carolina decisively tells you a lot of what you need to know. he'll probably win here tomorrow. a northeastern, southern and western powerhouse. it's up to the others candidates to decide, do they all stay in, and how do they explain how they eventually stop him? the voters need to decide this. right now, again, on the current trajectory, trump is strong. >> let's hop over to the democratic side. the clinton campaign said they
7:11 am
a lot of people were looking at how it was going to spin and the story changed because of the result. she did well with african-american voters. that'll be important in south carolina this saturday. what's the path forward for sanders? >> i think she made it difficult to imagine a scenario where bernie sanders overtakes her. she's become almost trump-like on the democratic side. the democratic process makes it harder for an upset candidate like bernie sanders. this was a decisive victory for her. she goes to represent much more favorable terrain for her and her message. >> saturday ends up being quite important in this race. good to have you both. thank you so much. >> thanks, guys. also this morning, disturbing new information emerging about the uber driver suspected of killing six people during a weekend shooting ram pain in kalamazoo, michigan. blake mccoy has more on the investigation. good morning. >> good morning from kalamazoo. this is where that driver is expected to be charged later today in the deaths of two
7:12 am
others in the shooting spree. investigators say they have a gun. they have surveillance video. they are sure he did it. they still don't know why. >> reporter: this is the man police say went on a rampage in kalamazoo. 45-year-old jason dalton. a husband and father of two, allegedly shooting his victims at random. >> they weren't targeted for any reason other than they were there to be a target. >> reporter: dalton is an uber driver, and police are looking into reports he picked up and dropped off fares in the six hours between the first shooting and when he was caught. one of the passengers spoke with nbc news by telephone. >> i kind of jokingly said to the driver, "you're not the shooter, are you?" he shook his head or said no. got up into the room and they say the news. i said, that's the car that we were in. >> reporter: sububer says they're
7:13 am
they did a background check and dalton did not have a political record. eight people were shot in three separate shootings. the locations, apartment complex, a car dealership and the parking lot of a crackerbarrel restaurant. among the dead, four women returning from a play. they had car pooled to save money and were swapping cars when the shots ss rang out. also dead, a father and teenage son who were shopping for a new car. >> you see the stuff on the news all the time. you don't think about it because it doesn't affect you. then this hits not just your community but your friends. >> reporter: loved ones fighting back tears during a sunday night vigil and struggling to make sense of such random violence. >> two survivors are in the hospital. a mother of three shot multiple times is in serious condition. and a 14-year-old girl who was pronounced for more than an hour yesterday, doctors were ss ss were
7:14 am
donation when she was able to squeeze her mother's hand. doctors realized she was still alive and rushed her into surgery. >> just awful, awful story. you never wrap your head around why that could happen. blake, thank you. for the first time, the director of the fbi is personally weighing in on his agency's fight with apple over unlocking a phone used by one of the san bernardino shooters. pete williams has more on this. good morning. >> good morning, savannah. the fbi director james comey says the investigation of what happened in san bernardino cannot be complete or thorough without getting a look at the phone. in the post overnight on a national security blog, he says, we can't look the survivors in the eye or ourselves in the mirror if we don't follow this lead. the lead is a phone that was owned by syed farook's employer, and that he used, which the fbi found in his mother's car. agents need apple's help to unlock it. apple is resisting, saying the
7:15 am
wants, it would have to create software. if that software gets in the wrong hands, it could jeopardize the security of any iphone in the world. comey writes on his blog, we don't want to break anyone's encryption or set a master key loose on the land. the fbi says there may not be anything of value on that phone, since farook deployed other phones but not that one, and it was owned by the county. tim cook, apple ceo, said this case is about much more than a single phone or a single investigation. he says what's at stake is the data security of hundreds of thousands of law-abiding people, and sets a precedent that threatens everyone's civil liberties. >> stakes high on all sides. pete pete, thank you. a powerful cyclone tore through fiji. authorities are getting a scale

7:17 am
>> they had to review a photo finish, determining that danny hamlin edged out martin truex jr. by 0.01. it's the closest finish of that race. ham in second grade, hamlin wrote a letter to himself, wishing for his daytona 500 victory. i'm sure he described it just like that. >> let it be a photo finish, extra exciting. al, houz itw is it going? >> like lightning mcqueen. >> yeah. we have rain in the southeast but watching another storm out of texas and on into the southeast. later tomorrow, it'll move over the south. severe storms with possible tornadoes tomorrow. into wednesday, a traction in the midwest with severe weather ahead of it, snow behind it. rain for the east. for tomorrow, we are looking at 16 million people at risk for dangerous lightning, winds and tornadoes. wednesday, we have a light risk

emergency motion to delay her deposition. camille, who worked for years as her husband's business manager, will now testify in a civil suit brought by seven women who allege they were sexually assaulted by bill cosby and claim his denials are defamation. cosby's team filed this motion late saturday, arguing camille was being forced to testify at a public and unsecured venue, creating an unnecessary media circus and personal security threat. in the end, a judge ruled it should go forward. the couple is rarely seen together in public these days. one of their last appearances was over a year ago. >> thank you. >> reporter: camille sat by her husband'side at the interview turned to mounting allegations. >> i just wanted to ask if you wanted to respond at all about whether any of that was true. >> there's no response. >> reporter: now, cosby faces a criminal trial in pennsylvania,

9:21 am
knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. crisp garden vegetables. no artificial flavors. philadelphia garden vegetable. rich, creamy... ...and delicious
