7:02 am
taking off right after the show. we'll talk and curse al roker in just a little while. let's start with politics though. in one week the polls will be open. let's get right to the state of the race. seven days to go. this morning the fbi is poring through thousands of e-mails found on anthony weiner's laptop looking for any connection to the ongoing investigation into hillary clinton. >> despite that newest e-mail controversy, our newest nbc news/survey monkey online poll shows clinton holding a six-point lead. >> with time quickly running out, both campaigns are if high gear today. trump has two rallies in states like pennsylvania and wisconsin. clinton makes three stops in florida. she's keeping her powerful surrogates busy as well with president obama, vice president biden and senator bernie sanders all on the campaign trail for her. nbc national correspondent peter alexander starts us off this morning. peter, good morning. >> reporter: matt, savannah, good morning to you. an hour from now, campaign aides
7:03 am
on offense, attacking what they describe the disastrous obamacare premium hikes. on twitter this morning trump is again attacking hillary clinton over her e-mails, as we've learned that investigators have made a duplicate of that hard drive from the laptop belonging to anthony weiner and they are now going through it. >> reporter: battered by donald trump's criticism about her latest e-mail issue -- >> what is in those e-mails is absolutely devastating. >> reporter: hillary clinton's alleged coziness with russia. >> donald trump should immediately disclose all of his ties and connections to the kremlin and its associates. >> reporter: after the top senate democrat, harry reid, accused fbi director james comey of having a double standard, for refusing to release "explosive information" regarding trump's ties to russia, nbc news has learned the fbi has launched a
7:04 am
trump campaign manager paul manafort's foreign business connections. handwritten records, according to "the new york times," show manafort was to be paid $12.7 million in cash for representing a pro-russian politician in ukraine. while the fbi did not to nbc news' comments for inquiry, a spokesperson for manafort says it is not true. "trump has no knowledge of any of his past or present activities." also attacking the fbi director for a "blatant double standard," the clinton campaign highlighting a cnbc report citing one former federal official who says comey did not want the fbi to be the federal agency disclosing russia's role in recent hacking because he was concerned it could influence the trump now defending comey. >> i really disagreed with him. i was not his fan, but i'll tell you what, what he did, he brought back his reputation. >> reporter: while intensifying his attacks on clinton. >> she is a terrible example for my son and for the children in this country. >> it comes as the fbi this morning is analyzing the thousands of e-mails found on a laptop belonging to clinton aide huma abedin and her estranged
7:05 am
mystified by the presence on her laptop. overnight released abedin had not been contacted by the give, but vows to remain forthcoming and cooperative. meanwhile, with just a week until the election, clinton remains defiant. >> i am sure they will reach the same conclusion they did when they looked at my e-mails for the last year. >> this morning there is a new poll out from this key battleground state of that seem to show donna brazile, the interim head of the democratic national committee, and a former cnn contributor, tipping off clinton about a debate question before her network's debate. >> who cares about donna brazile? who cares. what i care about is, hillary clinton gets the questions to a debate. that's a big deal. >> new this morning, this new
7:06 am
state of pennsylvania showing hillary clinton still up double digits over donald trump, 11 points. worth noting much of the poll was completed before the fbi announcement about its latest e-mail review, and as republicans, mike pence and donald trump are trying to get members of their party to come home and support their ticket. new evidence at least one republican leader is staying away, a spokesperson for john kasich telling nbc news that kasich has submitted his ballot, john mccain. matt and savannah, back to you. >> peter alexander starting us off, thank you. >> let's bring in steve kornacki and nicolle wallace. you've been on campaigns and in this position a week to go before election day. do campaigns view that amount of time as an eternity or a nanosecond? >> well, somewhere in between. i know you're getting sick of that answer, but here's how political information is being
7:07 am
84 million people watch, sometimes, it is the coverage of said debate and sometimes it is the facebook posts about the coverage about the debate. there is about a 72-hour window for political information to sink in and be processed and be judged. after about thursday or early friday, it is very hard to introduce new arguments into this campaign cycle. >> we are going to look more deeply into our poll with steve in a moment. you can show us what the pre-comey, post-comey effect was, if anything. but i guess the question is, do enthusiasm of perhaps republicans who were thinking about holding their nose and voting for hillary clinton? are they now coming home, as donald trump and mike pence are trying to encourage them to do? >> there are some indications. this even predates the whole comey thing. there were some indications that republican voters who had been sort of hold-outs were taking a new look in the final stretch of campaign and maybe coming to the conclusion, at the end of the day, i got to be with my party on this. this might hasten all of that.
7:08 am
maybe that's not the right question here as much as it is who is going to be more motivated because of this. i can see that happening for republicans. >> how much does attitude of a candidate come into play now? isn't it true that a candidate in the final days needs to start to project positivity? in other words, a sense that we're doing well, and then perception becomes reality for voters? >> yeah. listen, this may be another one of the bygone traditions of presidential politics. you typically pull your negative ads i you typically turn toward a positive, affirmative message but there's nothing normal about this candidacy. a, i don't know a lot of republicans recognize home with a head lamp and a map. it doesn't look like anywhere we've ever seen before. and it speaks to his deficit. i think upwards of 90% of democrats are behind their nominee. he struggled to get beyond 75% of republicans. so it makes an interesting case for the map that he's chosen. he's in states where he is not on offense. he has a big gap.
7:09 am
what is he projecting. is he simply projecting strength? >> it wouldn't be a fun political segment if we didn't send steve over to the wall. looking at this tracking poll nbc conducts for survey monkey. what does it show us? >> peter mentioned the headline. 47%-41%. that's where the race stands right now. of course the big question is last week, this is a weekly tracking poll. they're out there every day taking the poll. you can see last week before that announcement from the fbi, they were finding 47%-41% clinton. then those two days after the announcement, 47%-41%. so absolutely no immediate impact in terms of the polling here. bottom not dropping out for hillary clinton as a result. >> i'm going to go way, way out on a limb here. i'm going to suggest that perhaps whether people see the comey letter as a distraction or a significant might fall along party lines. >> you would be amazed to know how divided this country is. first of all, there is the overall question -- is it important or a distraction. slight majority saying important. if you are a democrat, 83% say that's just a distraction. it's not important.
7:10 am
complete opposite. if there is a silver lining here for trump at all, if you look at independent voters, they are more likely to say it is important. maybe a bit of an opening there for him. >> steve and nicolle, thank you, as always. let's talk now about a frightening scene in alabama when a gasoline pipeline exploded killing at least one worker. this happened near the site of a rupture back in september that led to gas shortages across the south. this morning that pipeline i nbc's gabe gutierrez has the latest on this. gabe, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. roads here are still blocked off, and authorities have managed to contain the blaze, but are now waiting for it to burn itself out. analysts like aaa expect prices at the pump to be affected after alabama's second major pipeline disruption in less than two months. >> oh, my god, it was growing so fast. >> reporter: this morning,
7:11 am
this massive explosion might impact the nation's gas supply, the blast sending flames and thick smoke soaring over shelby county. >> we're going to evacuate the command area. >> reporter: firefighters rushed to contain the blaze as it burned dozens of acres in an area already plagued by severe drought. >> chief, i'm going to need three engines, 1,000 gallons onboard. >> reporter: overnight colonial, the company that owns the pipeline, confirmed one worker was killed, five others injured. the mp igniting the fire. eyewitness larry garner was among the first on the scene and saw one worker covered in flames. >> picked up one man that was working down there and brought him up there and washed the gas off of him, send him on to the hospital. >> reporter: the explosion happened just miles from the site of a pipeline leak just a few weeks ago. that incident caused gas shortages and sent pump prices soaring across the southeast.
7:12 am
east coast fuel. overnight colonial said our deepest condolences go out tonight to the family and friends of the person who was lost. >> our crews are moving here now to set up an incident and command post and will be responding to all the resources available to them. but in any kind of situation like this, you can never feel comfortable until it is over. >> reporter: that pipeline remains shut down. gasoline futures rose significantly in overnight trading, and again, analysts predict that could mean higher prices at the pump in the coming weeks across a large swath of the country. matt and savannah? >> gabe gutierrez, thank you. now to a halloween night tragedy. it happened in rural mississippi. two children and one adult were killed, several others suffered life threatening injuries when a truck plowed into a halloween hayride. this happened in newton county about 80 miles east of jackson. all ten victims were on a
7:13 am
vehicle. it is unclear what caused this crash and so far, police say there have been no arrests. we are hearing for the first time the voice of omar mateen, the gunman responsible for the largest mass shooting in u.s. history. orlando police released new audio recordings on monday from the pulse nightclub massacre that occurred back on june 12th. on the chilling 911 tapes, mateen explains to a police crisis negotiator his reasons behind the deadly rampage. right now so i can get you some help? >> no. because you have to tell america to stop bombing syria and iraq. they are killing a lot of innocent people. >> a s.w.a.t. team swarmed in about three hours after the initial 911 call. they killed mateen. in all, 49 victims were killed, 53 wounded. a judge will now decide whether to release more than 200 other calls recorded during that rampage.
7:14 am
could have a big effect on election day. more than 4,700 septa workers walked off the job at midnight after they could not reach a contract agreement. subway, bus and trolley service were brought to a halt. nearly 60,000 kids use septa to get to school every day. with election day just one week septa may seek an injunction to forcing strike workers back on the job if there is no anticipation is high in cleveland and chicago for tonight's pivotal game six of the world series. the indians have a chance to close things out and win their first title in 68 years. they could do it at home. for the cubs, it is a must-win to force game seven. nbc's ron mott is at progressive field in cleveland. ron, good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. the fans here in cleveland, pretty confident about their
7:15 am
advantage, but cubs fans not quite ready to concede just yet, and the pressure on these two teams is enormous. >> it's nerve racking. >> the anguish, the anxiety, the anticipation. this world series has been exhilarating and exhausting for fans of both clubs. narrowly missing a three-game sweep of the cubs at wrigley field to take the crown, the tribe's back home in cleveland on a quest -- win one and it's done. >> it's been a long time. >> it couldn't be a better match-up. >> reporter: chicago transplant seanat is there any one team more deserving than to win this thing? >> absolutely the cubs. >> reporter: naturally, the indians are the talk of the town ahead tonight's game six. one caller after another on sports talk radio virtually certain a championship is headed their way. another cleveland champ, lebron james, tweeting -- one more, boys. and history is on their side. the last team to battle back 3-1 games to win it on the road was
7:16 am
only five clubs in baseball history have ever done it, home or away. still, the cubs are focused yet loose. team president theo epstein handing out candy. manager joe maddon showing up to work in this, while their smallest fans scribble well wishes on the bricks outside wrigley. >> i wrote "go cubs." >> meantime, indians super fan, 104-year-old emily known simply at nana, is gearing up yet again with a pointer or two for her guys. >> i want them to steal more bases. >> i want to play for her. for tickets to tonight's game, a home run for sellers. stubhub says the average price for a resold ticket, $1,400. the high, $11,000, and the prices only go up from there for game seven, if there is a game seven tomorrow night. matt, savannah, al? >> thank you very much. you are going to fly out to cleveland after the show.
7:17 am
a briefcase. >> absolutely. then maybe go see nana. i got to do it. it's hard to believe how warm it's actually going to be for this game. we're talking about game six tonight. 69 degrees, november 1st in cleveland. if there is a game seven, we've got some late game showers and a temperature possibly of 70 degrees! that's crazy. wide, big area of high pressure pushes the jet stream up to the north. you have this strong high pushing that warm air up into the midwest. warm streaks going. new orleans, three days in a row of record-breaking temps. four days of birmingham and montgomery. atlanta, three days and the hits just keep coming. could set a record today in atlanta. montgomery, mobile, new orleans and birmingham. and as we move into the upper midwest, cincinnati 82. louisville could see a record. same with nashville and memphis. it stretches out west as well from roswell, little rock, on into wichita. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next

we're we're back now, 7:30 on a tuesday morning. 1st day of november, 2016. morning after halloween. no candy coma for our energetic crowd. we will be outside saying had i in just a couple minutes. >> here is a look at the headlines this morning. overnight iraqi troops trying to make tack mosul from isis entered that city for the first time in more than two years. officials are telling us they are being met with heavy resistance from isis fighters and are facing difficult house to house fighting. hillary clinton tried to throw cold water on the fbi's review of those newly discovered
7:31 am
if they want to look at more e-mails of one of my staffers by all means go ahead, look at them and i know they will reach the same conclusion they reached when they looked at my e-mails last year. >> meantime the fbi has launched a preliminary inquiry into donald trump's former campaign manager. it's focused on his foreign business connections. and our latest nbc news survey monkey on line poll that was conducted in the days b and after the comey announcement shows her maintaining a 6 point lead over trump. that is virtually unchanged since last week. in today's campaign moment, a changing of the guard on social media. the white house has just announced that when president obama leaves office he will also leave behind the @potus twitter account and hand it over to his successor. that person will inherit the more than 11 million followers.
7:32 am
called @potus 44, similar new accounts will be created for the first lady and the vice president. in the meantime the clinton campaign is out with a new ad in the last week of the race and it's raising some eyebrows. nbc's hallie jackson has more on that. hallie, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi there, matt. good morning. with just seven days to go hillary clinton is trying to hammer home her argument that donald trump is simply too dangerous to be commander in chief. by referencing one of the famous and scariest political ads ever, an ad the trump campaign is brushing off as just a distraction from they say clinton's own controversies. >> an already explosive campaign now going nuclear. in a matter of speaking. >> bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. >> one, two -- >> reporter: the clinton team turning to this black and white ad from the height of the cold
7:33 am
a mushrooming attack that's now part of a new on air war. clinton playing off perhaps the most famous presidential ad of all time, it starred this three-year-old. >> this was me in 1964, the fear of nuclear war we had at children i never thought our children would ever have to deal with that again. >> reporter: now in the final week of the campaign clinton is trying to capitalize on the concerns some have about trump in the oval office, reinforcing her message on tv, on week. >> even the prospect of an actual nuclear war doesn't seem to bother donald trump. good luck. enjoy yourselves, folks, is what he had to say about a potential nuclear conflict. >> reporter: here is what donald trump actually said to cnn in march about more u.s. allies getting nuclear weapons. >> we're better off frankly if south korea is going to start to protect itself. >> saudi arabia. >> saudi arabia, absolutely.

7:36 am
establish what prosecutors call a pattern of behavior dating back to the 1960s. in court documents the defense argues mr. cosby cannot even determine whether he has ever even seen some of his accusers let alone develop defenses. cosby has never been charged with any crimes based on their accusations and denies the claims. in a motion filed late monday the defense said the 13 women in question are unreliable and fail to demonstrate a signature pattern of is a victim of racism. in court documents lawyers argue that when the at least 50 women accusing cosby of sexual assault or misconduct started coming forward, the public jumps into a mob, willing to believe unsubstantiated decades old allegations against an african-american citizen. >> he thought an absolute generation of americans to trust in america, to trust in america regardless of who you are or the

you fairly and with decency. that trust has been shaken. >> what about us black women whom he sexually violated? >> we interviewed cosby accuser lily bernard at her home in los angeles and read her parts of the recent court documents. >> they say that this is, quote, a highly publicized crew side against mr. cosby. >> bernard after sex ses cosby of drugging and raping her three times in the early '90s. she never went to accusations. >> he is paralleling my holding him accountable for his drugging and raping me to his being a vak tim of racism to his being a victim of a modern day lynching. what that does is it den greats the souls of the real heroes in the civil rights movement. >> bernard is not among the 13 with em who may be called to testify. nbc news has learned from court documents and the witnesses themselves that at least two of
7:38 am
mostly white ak certificates were chosen to trigger racist sensibilities in the jury. bernard disagrees. >> what is keeping bill cosby out of jail is not the color of his skin it's the power, it's his monetary worth. >> reporter: you can expect to hear a similar argument from the prosecution. they will say that there was not an unconstitutional delay in these charges and that bill cosby has used his name and fortune to in their words, quote, cover up his crimes. va courthouse for us. thank you. let us get another check of the weather from mr. roker. >> things a little unsettled out in the midwest as we watch a system start to develop, we are starting to see showers in the upper great lakes and some snow as you get up into canada. a weak frontal system will be pushing through, low pressure will develop along that. later this afternoon. joe every night look for these storms to develop and then pushing on into parts of northern illinois including chicago by late in the afternoon tomorrow and those push toward

8:33 am
>> matt? >> all right, al. thank you very much. as we mentioned this morning, we're launching no shave today to raise awareness for men's health. we're going to be growing out our facial hair throughout the month of november. we've also partnered with dr. oz to highlight some important issues. first up, testicular cancer. dr. oz, good morning. let's get it out of the way right off the bat. people hear testicular cancer. men, they get embarrassed with be they don't want to talk ba it. it deals with a part of the i think 55% of men say this embarrasses them. >> i get it. i tell my patients all the time, you got to be the expert on your body. men shy away, this is an awkward part of the body, things you don't talk about. take a peek at this interesting video. you'll enjoy this. >> it can be pretty hard to get a man's attention.
8:34 am
so we've taken the liberty of incorporating some guy stuff in this video to keep you interested. here's three easy steps to check yourself for testicular cancer at home. first, go in the shower. because the steam will relax your scrotum. next, hold each testicle in your hand one at a time between your fingers and your thumbs. feel for hard lump side but not the other. if you found any of those or notice a change in size, see your doctor. now you know how to take your health into your own hands. literally. >> that's brilliant. >> put the car in there for jay. >> little slam dunk as well. that's great. 88% of men in our survey that we conducted if conjunction with you said they know they should screen themselves once a month.
8:35 am
>> 1 in 5 men are admitting that they don't really know what to do and how to do it. thus, the psa. but it is bigger than that. the fact of the ma earth is we're embarrassed because these are sexual organs. things that have to do with basic bodily function we don't get into. this whole month is about taking care of yourself so you are there for your family. >> what age should men start checking themselves doing self-examinations. >> at around cancer is incredibly curable. my opinion is start at age 15. many medical societies agree. at least through the next two decades of life. all the good behaviors we adapt we start when we're young. get in the shower and collection it out. >> if you can find this early, incredibly curable especially if it stays localized. >> men are a little clueless on this stuff. we really are intimidated and embarrassed and we shouldn't be.
8:36 am
bit more comfortable. >> a good way to remember this is when you see us growing our hair out and looking scruffy, terrible, think i should be doing a self-examination for testicular cancer or prostate cancer, colon cancer. get screened for that. that's what the purpose of the month is. >> it's what a real man does. we put some manly things in the video. mentally take control. it is your destiny. >> carson is in the orange room thanks, matt. to help us kick off our no shave today, mark hedstrom is raising money for men's health charities. good to have you here. thanks so much. you guys do a lot of great work. what specifically -- what specific charities are you raising money for? >> we raise money for the movember foundation.
8:37 am
we are in 21 countries around the world. we've raised $710 million in 13 years. this is our 13th campaign. >> when people see the mustache, the whole idea of this was for what? for mustache to just be a reminder? >> it is a reminder -- i have a terrible mustache about ten days in. but the point is to start a conversation about men's health. when you see a guy on the street with a ten-day old or they become walking, talking billboards for are men's health. >> mark, thanks so much. we'll be growing our beards and mustaches out this month. if you are, too, send your photos using this hashtag "no-shave today" of course their hashtag is movember. mark, good luck this month. thank you. coming up next, dana carvey is about to leave some lasting impressions on all of us. but first, this is "today"

it never happened. the only thing -- i've spent the year trying to figure out the appeal of donald trump. and he's a blunt force instrument. so like if your cause is global warming and are you going to the conference, who would you rather have with you than donald trump? he would be like, you know, you stupid countries, okay? you're very, very stupid. okay? you're spewing all this stuff in the air, the air's get egg hot, the grass is getting hot, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch. i will be so good with global wa i'll make co2 pay for it. i can promise you that. i know how to make glaciers. okay, matt? i can make a lot of glaciers. i'll take all the ice from the trump hotel. that's a lot of ice,ky tell you that. i would put it on the carnival cruise ships. i know these people. they're friends of mine. okay? so that's trump. that's why the people who love him love him and the undecideds
