>> meanwhile, the bombshell endorsement reverberating. christie joining forces with trump. >> this alliance raising all kinds of questions. will it give trump unstoppable momentum heading into super tuesday. what does it mean for a supposedly surging marco rubio. we start our coverage with abc's mary bruce right in washington. hi, mary. >> hi, paula, good morning. this is a potential game changer in this roller coaster campaign, donald trump getting his first major endorsement from a card carrying member of the republican establishment just as he heads into super tuesday. his former rival showed up un unannounced and dropped a bombshell on donald trump's campaign. >> we'll have a first class president in donald trump. >> reporter: chris christie is lending his credibility to trump's runaway campaign. >> i can guarantee you that the one person that hillary and bill clinton do not want to see on that stage come next september is donald trump.
so friendly. >> we'll do it. i'll get it done because i make deals and i get deals and i'm doing deals. >> reporter: united christie and trump are taking aim at a common enemy, marco rubio. >> desperate people in campaigns flail pumps in the last days of a losing campaign. >> reporter: after rubio let trump have it. >> if he hadn't inherited $200 million he would be selling watches -- >> no, no, no. >> reporter: then mocked trump for his spelling mistakes on twitter. >> he meant to say lightwet l hoochlt e-i-g-h-t. great hoener. the "e" and "o" are nowhere near each other. as for a full length mirror. the podium goes up to here. he wanted a full length mirror. maybe to make sure his pants weren't wet. >> you had to see him backstage. he was putting on makeup with a trowel. >> reporter: and trump doing his
drinking water. >> it's rubio. >> reporter: but rubio seems to be rather unimpressed with trump's big endorsement saying he probably called christie because he needed a life line after that bruising debate. at least on twitter there are signs of opposition growing against the front-runner. the #nevertrump has been trending for the last ten hours. dan. >> all part of the elevated discourse of american politics this morning. mary bruce, thank you. for more let's bring in abc news political analyst matt dowd who is in austin, texas, this morning. how big a deal is this christie endorsement? does it actually matter? >> well, endorsements don't usually matter and especially in presidential contexts but i think in this case it won't add support to donald trump, i think what it does in the aftermath, it solidifies his support going into sum tuesday.
leading most of the polls in nearly every state, his support solidifies and not bleeding off to marco rubio or somebody else is a help that christie could provide. >> what's in it for christie? why would he do this? >> well, i mean obviously that's a question. i'm a person that assumes the good intention in the course of in that there's not some nefarious thing that somebody's finagled some endorsements a certain way and a couple of thing, first, is chris christie and donald trump have had a personal relationship. one does a lot of development in new jersey, one the governor there and had a personal relationship and, two, chris christie has come to the conclusion that donald trump in his mind will be the gop nominee. so why not get on board now and at a critical moment for donald trump going into super tuesday and who knows what that might get him in the course of the campaign. if donald trump was to win the white house, so i think that's the equation he did. >> meanwhile, marco rubio really tearing into donald trump. do you think this helps or hurts him?
it's like a 10-year-old insult contest between the two of them. i actually think -- i think marco rubio can criticize donald trump and attack him on substantive things. i think when he tries to out2ru6r7 trump that's a problem for marco rubio. keep in mind for a year marco rubio has ron on the non nonattacking aspirational candidate and now in the course of 48 hours he's tried to become some version of trump. i don't think that's necessarily a benefit to him going into super tuesday. >> a big turnaround. matthew dowd, we love having your analysis. thank you. paula, over to you. >> things much calmer in the democratic ring. today's south carolina primary, hillary clinton's predicted to easily best bernie sanders. a win gives her momentum heading into their big super tuesday showdown and abc's david wright will give us that side of the story. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, paula. the polls are open here in the palmetto state and even at this hour, a slight crowd is
democrats only today the republicans had their south carolina primary last week and as you say, hillary clinton has a huge advantage here. >> how are you? >> reporter: in her last few campaign stops here hillary clinton was already looking ahead to the general election. >> i don't know who they're going to end up nominating. it'll be entertaining, that's for sure. >> reporter: ignoring the fact that just outside the orangeburg fish fry her democratic rival was waiting for her to finish. >> feeling great. >> reporter: african-americans make up more than half the democratic electorate here. >> wake up, south carolina. >> reporter: so bernie sanders has a new radio ad featuring director spike lee. >> and when bernie gets in the white house he will do the right thing. >> reporter: clinton's south carolina ads feature morgan freeman. >> like she's always stood with us. >> reporter: recent polls show clinton crushing sanders 2-1 among black voters giving her a

>> that is awesome. >> way back in 1990. long before he got mauled by a bear in "the revenant" he was a fresh-faced teen starring in "growing pains." >> i love "growing pains." >> and these showing up, the clean-cut adorable but kind of dorky look he had going on at the time. it worked out for him. come a long way and we're all rooting for him. >> he's got to win. >> nothing dorky about that. that combover looks good. >> i don't remember which character he was. >> he was a friend. he's not a regular. >> he wasn't a seaver. >> i love when she knows the name. >> i'm with you on this one. >> indra was following it. >> yeah. when all with all the talk of the oscars it marks the most dishonorable award show, the razzies, unveiled tonight. some of the nominees may join a select group of stars like
oscar and a razzie. she won it in 2010 for worst access in "all about steve." the next day her ego stepped up as she picked up an academy award for her work in "the blindside."" eddie redmayne is up for worst supporting actor for "jupiter ascending" and best actor for "the danish girl." other stars already inducted into the razzie oscar club include al pacino, ben affleck, halle berry. >> it shows range, doesn't it? your versatility. >> i feel like it almost -- >> yeah, bad to good. >> everyone strikes out sometime, right? >> what did affleck win one for, is that "gigli." >> or "jersey girl." >> there's a few. >> we had a divorce spot on ben. let's let imgo for the day. a psa for stars with superstitions and lucky charms, "the hollywood reporter" crunched the numbers on the
the oscar nominees should be opting for a white hot look. 25% of the past decade's winners wore white including last year's best actress winner julianne moore. the second luckiest hue is blue as worn by lupita nyong'o when she picked up the best supporting actress award for "12 years a slave." if in doubt wear gold like oscar. not as popular as white and blue statistically it's a great choice with half of the nominees who wore it going on to win big including meryl streep who took home the best actress statue in 2012 for "the iron lady" and many other times because she's meryl streep. >> ron, some of the nation's brightest mights were involved in crunching those numbers. >> did you bring a toy to "pop," ron? was it not serious enough. >> the laugh track. >> i have no idea what ron is doing. that is not unusual. we'll be right back here
