8:02 am
eaglets but now going with dc 2 and 3. >> did you watch a little bit yesterday? >> i did. >> i did. i'm getting -- i was getting updates through the night, people telling me the mom has flown off, tianaken a break, the dad is sitting on the eggs, everybody is being cared for. i appreciate everybody on twitter that has gotten hooked on this dc eagle cam and updating these throughout the night. >> we'll get back to the eagles in a bit. >> right it our top story this morning, another day filled with protests and violence at donald trump's rallies. this morning we're hearing from one of the men injured in the protests. jacob rascon is in tucson this morning. good morning. >> reporter: the front lines of the immigration debate, where donald trump and ted cruz spent a lot of time recently. that protester sucker punched and beaten while on the ground. he tells me his only thought was to protect his head and he says
8:03 am

8:04 am
>> you know, this country has a big, big problem with illegal immigration. >> reporter: a key issue in arizona where sheriff joe arpaio and governor jan brewer rallied with him. last ditch efforts to stop trump growing desperate. millions in ad money against him in utah and beyond. and reports of a 100 day stop trump campaign led by the ever unpopular establishment, whose captain mitt romney is now voting cruz. >> republicans are coming together behind this campaign. >> reporter: in utah, cruz now showing a sizable lead over trump, while despite his difficult road ahead, john kasich telling chuck todd he won't be anyone's vice president. >> under no circumstances. are you kidding me? >> reporter: and the trump supporter who beat up was arrested. the opposition to his candidacy,
8:05 am
opposition is growing louder, bolder and more organized than ever before. >> jacob rascon, thank you. chuck todd is nbc's political director, mediator of "meet the press." good morning to you. spent the last three weeks in various parts of ohio, went to a trump rally in youngstown on wednesday, struck by the depth and the intensity of the support for donald trump. no violence there. but at the beginning of the rally, they make these announcements, to not touch a protester. they seem to go out of their way. why does this keep happening at his rallies? >> i think you can't help but it is ignited his candidacy, ignited something. you see it. look, his own words ignites something. yes, they are now including warnings at the top of these rallies, but, you know, this is not the way the candidate speaks when he's at these rallies. i think that you can't help but
8:06 am
he is helping to stoke the fire here that in his audience and then, look, that -- in turn that invites other protesters who want to respond in the same violent way. i think it is -- i think we see an escalation that is taking place here that at the end of the day, the candidate himself is probably the best person to de-escalate. >> looking ahead to the next contest on tuesday, trump is doing well in arizona, ted cruz is doing well in utah. but according to the new york times, it is the wisconsin primary on april 5th, gop leaders are focusing on. that's when they're going to do this 100 day plan to stop trump. can you talk about this? what is the theory here and how will this really work? >> well, that's the -- you hit the question. i don't know how it is going to work. they have not figured out -- there have been plenty of people who are desiring a strategy to stop trump. but there is no single strategy that anybody wants to unify around. and there is a reason for it. it is the antipathy that
8:07 am
ted cruz is the logical anti-trump vehicle. he's the guy that is most likely to be able to stop trump. he's sitting in second place. but because so many of the big money people, so many u.s. senators and republicans think trump is -- thinks cruz is as unelectable as trump, so they're not ready to do it. i think that's why this anti-trump campaign can't get off the ground. >> really quickly here, chuck, the confirmation battle for supreme court nominee merrick garland now, we saw mike kirk there, the republican, who has quite the re-election battle ahead of him. the first republican to come out and say, we should give this guy a hearing. is this the beginning of something? or is this nomination still very much dead in the water? >> you know, i think i want to know what happens to chuck grassley. i think at the end of the day, it is in his hands. he's the republican senator from iowa. he's the guy in charge of the judiciary committee. he can schedule the confirmation hearing if he chooses to. he also happens to be up for re-election.
8:08 am
south, and he suddenly feels vulnerable in iowa, then, craig, i promise you merrick gets a hearing. if he feels politically safe holding firm on the no confirmation hearing front, garland will not get a hearing. >> chuck todd, thank you, sir. we'll see more on "meet the press," where john kasich, the two-term governor of ohio, will be among chuck's guests. president obama will arrive in cuba later this afternoon, a first for any sitting president since the 1920s. there is a lot on the line during this historic visit. andrea mitchell is already in cuba with more on that. andrea, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, sheinelle. just 90 miles separating the u.s. from cuba, but it has been nearly 90 years as you point out since the last u.s. president came here. calvin coolidge in the 1920s. and while this trip mashes an historic high point in the with countries' relationship, differences remain, differences that keep the two close
