7:06 am
>> well, we are certainly glad that, jared, y you made it out safely and our hearts go out to those who did not. those who were wounded. jared and j jennifer trujillo, thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> yes. >> yes. >> you know, jared and i spoke earlier. he said that all of the other shootings we witnessed over the past two decades prepared him for that moment because he always thought, wt would i do if? >> thank goodness what a sad commentary on where we are. we move to the race for the white house. it's "your voice, your vote." and with super tuesday coming up, the final gop showdn last night was a texas-size brawl. marco rubio, ted cruz, comin out with guns blazing against donald trump and jbs's jon karlabc's jon karl was there. >> reporter: marco rubio did something he has never done fore in this campaign, he took the fight directly to donald trump. on the debate stage in houston, marco rubio and ted cruz immediately piled on donald trump.
7:07 am
illegal immigrants t to help build trump tower. >> you're the only person on this stage that's ever been fined for hiring p peopleo work on your projects illegally. you hired -- >> no, i'm the only one on the stage that's hired people. you haven't hired anybody. >> rubio is right they fou him 2k3wi89ing being part of a conspiracy and entered a $1 million judgment against him. >> reporter: then an energized rubio took over throwing everything he had at trump. >> i don't know about bankruptingg companies. you know -- >> you know why? >> starting with -- >> one at a time. >> reporter: it got personal. >> if he hadn't inherited $200 million million, you know where donal trump would be right now. sellining watches. >> reporter: later rubio needled umfor more details on his health care plan. >> we should dr. gott rid of the lines. we should have gotten -- we have
7:08 am
the -- >> reporter: trump seemeddo be stuck on repeat as rubio had done in the new hampshire debate. >> just the lines. >> you have many different plans. you'll have competition. you'll have so many different plans. >>ow he's repeating himself. >> no, i'm n repeatingng -- >> mr. trump -- >> no, no.

7:09 am
did nothing to downplay expectations for superer tuesday. in fact, he told me, george, he believes he has a goo chance of winning across the board including right here in texas which is ted cruz's home state. >> thank you. joining us senator marco rio from texas. thank you for joinings this morning. lots of greatat reviews and great headlines lastnight. >> good rning. >> but the big question this morning for you, is it too little too late? >> well, i don't belve that. i think it's important for people to understand they have a chchoice to make. look, if this pattern continues the conservative movement in the republican party will be taken over by a con artist portraying himself as the fighter of the ordinary person fighting for the working man but he spent years sticking it to thehe worng people. >> why didn't yououake this case earlier? was that a hiss take? >> because -- you know, george, i would prefer not to get into this situation wre we're attacking one another but the cover he's getting from the media these days is extraordinary. you watch last knighton 0 the cable shows afterwards.
7:10 am
to do to marco rubio like he's some sort ofnvincible force and there are people now innthe media, i'm not saying you, but others rooting for him to win because they love first of alall what it means for their ratings in a general election butut here' the other, for those biased this ans you will have a republican nominee who basically agrees with hillary clinton on planned parenthood and bng neutral on israel, on -- even on issues regarding the economy like the takeover of our healthare system by the government. he used the talking point that democrats consistently use, that if you don't support a government intervention in the health care industry, you're in favor of letting people die in the streets. so, they're holding back and as soon as the nominee they'll open up the floodgates and hit him with a bunch of ories. it's important for republicans and conservatives to be awarere of what is happening. >> he has been hitting youover night in twitter calling you a choke artist, lightweight and puts up this tweet that has the cover of the drudge report this morning asking where do you win?
7:11 am
dona trump is ahead in almost every state on super tuesday. you're ahead in none. >> yeah, i acknowledge i'm an underdog and have been my entire li, unlike donald, i didn't inherit hundreds of millions. my dad was a bartender. my mother did the job as a maid that trump hires foreigners to do and my whole life i've had to fight and will fightht now. no way the party of reagan and conservative movement, i'll allow to be taken over by a con artist. he calls me a choker. he's a con artist. he spent 40 years sticking it to the people he claims to be fighting for. > where d you win on tuesda if he win eight or nine states, can he be stopped. >> he can because, first of all, if you look at tuesday most will award delegatesroportionately and we'll do well in virtually every state and hopefully win a couple. even if we don't you'll see us continue to pick up delegates. when we get into march 15th
7:12 am
>> he's up doue digits right now. >> no, he's not. that's one poll. we've seen multiple polls that show a very different race. i am -- i know florida well. i've won there. i'm from there. we are going to win florida. florida is not going to vote for a con artist a and it's not going to voteor someone who in palm beach right now iss now hiring willing americans that are willing to work, instead he's importing a workforce from abroad and out there some immigration crusader. it's a fraud and we'll expose it. >> thanks for joining us. let's go to matthew dowd in texas this morning. you saw about eight months' worth of attacks on donald trump last night from marco rubio and ted cruz. does it change the dynynamic of this race? >> well, i think that -- i think marco rubio lded some punches but i don't think there were any knockouts and one of the difficulties for marco rubio in this is he's been this aspirational, optimistic i'm not going to attack figure throughgh
7:13 am
different marcorubio. now, he landed punches but i thk that's part of the problem. what is t the authentic part you're running in the race. in the end your q question is right where can he w win on tuesday? and i don't think the debate last night changed the dynamic at all. i thinkonald trump is still set up to win most of the states on tuesday. >> if he wins most of the states tuesday, ted cruz has to win texas to stay in and marco rubio has to win florida two weeks later to have any chance to get the nomination? >> i think ted cruz is probably going to win here in texas but i think he absolutely has to win in texas. i think this debate last night asf tuesday night when we get the results in thisebate will fade in memory and will be going on to the next thing. i think donald trump and his supporters last night watched that debatend all of them cheered and anybody -- this race is pretty set. >> nothing they put on the table will hurt donald trp? >> i think the only thing that could hurt donald trump if in the aftermath some of the
7:14 am
attacks theyade stick over the next three days. not in the moment of the debate debate. >> okay, m matthew dowd, thanks ve much. we'll have much more sunday on "this week." i'll be with our wle political 10:00 p.m. back to robin in l.a. >> thank you very mumuch. back now with the countdown to oscars and host chris rock taking center stage. his monologue one of t most eagerly awaited in oscar's histor i think that's safe to say and nick watt is here. >> millions of eyes on him, the boycott, jada a pinkett smith, will smith, spike lee not coming. chris rock himself has declined, canceled all interviews apart from one and that was before even the nominations came out. we'll show you that in a momenent and testing material in comedy clubs but there is no recording, no video of that.
7:15 am
cryptic posts like these. overnight he tweeted this see you sunday #blackout. previously, getting my outfit together, the space suit referenced to nominee "the martian" maybe and almost showtime with kristen wiig and j.j. abrams, "star wars" in the works? no comments. >> what you can expect from chris rock this oscar sunday is that he is going to go there. >> reporter: we know he will address the oscars so white controversy, not o plaque acting nominee on twitter saying it's the white b.e.t. awards. >> our host for the evening, chris rock. >> reporter: this was last time he hosted in 2005. >> great night tonight. we have, what, four black nominees tonight. kind of l like the def oscar jam tonight. >> reporter: with every hollywood mover and shaker in the room and 40 million plus of
7:16 am
>> if you get up on the wrongng foot, though, it's a real hard holeo dig yourself out of. >> reporter: i think he might relish that. >> i'm only here bause ellen didn't want to do the show. i'm only here because ellen said no. >> reporter: other clues from his last time hoing, he will probably get political. >> bush did some things you could never get away with at your job. >> reporter: he will definitely get personal. wield that sword. >>oby maguire is just a boy in tights. >> reporter: any ti?? >> i might curse. >> reporter: he won'n't, i hope. we like to keep it clean here at abc but -- >> he is a safe choice that you tune in and want to see how far he's going to take things and what he's going to say. >> reporter: rock i publicly proud of hosting a very fast show. last time, fast, furious and funny, expec that. now, my favite clue came on
7:17 am
he tweeted, someone at abc is going to get fired for this. for the sake of our colleagues, robin, i hope that's not the case b he'll take it up to the line and beyond. >> it's a balancing act because, as we sa he'll go there but it is a serious iss but then it's also celebrating those that were indeed nominated. we'll see what happens. fast, furious, funny, what was th? all of that. whoopi goldberg will have a live interview with cheryl boon isaacs this morning on "the view." watch the oscars starting with the red carpet show 7:00 p.m. here on abc and the party keeps going monday on "gma." coming up, a clor look at the oars controversy. more on that, lara, later. yes, robibin. that's true i talked tohe new executive producers about how they promise thi year's oscars will be more diverse than ever. they were also very forthchcoming about major chaes to thiss year's show. i'm telling you these are
