they're not talking about the band. they're not talking about him running for the presidency. they're talking about his senatorship. which may be is on the rocks here. watch this space. good friday morning, right now on "first look," a super typhoon packing wind up to 235 miles per hour. it's battering the philippines this morning. nbc exclusive interview with president obama. did he lie about people keeping health care plans they like? what about replacing joe biden as his vp? twitter's grand debut on the stock market. and fireworks fly when number three takes on number five in college football. good morning. it's been called one of the most powerful storms ever recorded. right now, supertyphoon haiyan
is lashing the philippines. they are expecting catastrophic damage. here is francis coe. >> reporter: the typhoon slammed early friday. the central philippines are barrelling the front. drenching rains that made visibility virtually nonexistent. debris went through the air. the roads transformed into rapid moving rivers. storm surges are expected to reach 20 feet in some cities. about 1 million people are taking coverage in shelters in 20 provinces. because the country is made up of islands, there's fear residents have few options. they are calling haiyan a perfect storm with a clear eye. the only positive, it's fast
moving. that's little comfort for residents now bracing for the worst. >> nbcs bill karins will be more on the powerful storm in a few minutes. now to an nbc exclusive with president obama including an apology. chuck todd sat down with him and asked him about a promise he made to the american people that said if you like your health insurance, you can keep it, period. >> first of all, i meant what i said. we worked hard to try to make sure we implemented it. obviously, we didn't do a good enough job and i regret that. we are talking 5% of the population in the individual market, out there buying health insurance on their own. it only affected a small amount of the population, it means a lot to them when they get this letter, canceled. i am deeply concerned about it.
i assigned my team to see what can we do to close some of the holes and gaps in the law. >> do you feel like you owe these folks an apology? they feel misled. you have seen the anger out there. >> i regret, very much, that what we intended to do, which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want them as opposed to they are forced into it, that we weren't as clear as we needed to be in terms of the changes that were taking place. i am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me. we have to work hard to make sure they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence with this. >> also addressed the
speculation in "double down" where authors report the obama campaign considers swapping joe biden out for hillary clinton on the 2012 presidential ticket. >> here is the one thing i can say for certain, that, if they had asked me, i would have said there is no way i'm not running again with joe biden. i genuinely believe he has been one of the best vice presidents in our history. he also happens to be a friend. he happens to be one of my most important advisers on domestic and foreign policy. i like him. when my back is up against the wall, he has my back. >> meanwhile, house speaker john boehner responsed to the remarks on obama care. what americans want to hear is the president is going keep his promise. the house will vote next week to allow anyone with a health care plan they like to keep it. i want to get you more on the miami bullying case.
jonathan martin's lawyer is speaking out, addressing toughness is not an issue. he said martin, quote, endured harassment that went beyond locker room hazing. he added it was a hard choice for martin to leave the dolphins and he looks forward to getting back in the game, but is cooperating at the time. incognito is suspended indefinitely. now, to another apology from toronto mayor, rob ford. three days after the bombshell admission he smoked crack cocaine, video reveals him making a death threat to an unknown person. they posted the rant on their website. the paper paid for the video and says the context is not clear. we want you to take a look. >> that's right.

7 jersey officially retired. congrats to him. tony dorsett talks about suffering from a disease caused by head trauma. here is his optimistic view, though. >> i have been told that, you know, we can slow it down, we can stop it. sometimes it can reverse it. so, i'm all over this. i'm trying to get this thing straight as far as my cte is concerned. look at tony go. former heavyweight champ mike tyson "undisputed trut." he says sometimes i fantasize about blowing somebody's brains out so i can go to prison for the rest of my life. working on this bookmaking he think my whole life has been a joke. how about mayor big poppy? >> mayor, huh? >> mayor.

weather across the u.s. as we go throughout the weekend. into next week, a big shot of cold air and potential for a coastal storm. you are going to hear a lot about it. potential for a snowstorm, i-95 up into new england. the american model saying no storm at all. >> a conflict. >> we will see who wins. next week, we may see snow flakes. >> thank you, bill. twitter's grand opening generates billions. a road crew painting lines on this road. that's next. so you're telling me your mom has a mom cave?

here is your "first look" at scrambled politics. pat quinn will make gay marriage legal on november 20th. same-sex marriage are legal in 14 states. a man with the last name of carter announces his run for georgia governor. he's the grandson of former president, jimmy carter. howard kobul becomes the sixth house member not seeking re-election in 2014. he joins john run yan, michele bachmann. new york's cardinal, timothy
dolan is pressuring the u.s. congress to act on legislation before the end of this year saying it's, quote, a matter of great moral urgency. remember earlier this week, vice president joe biden made a call to the wrong marty walsh? he meant to call the mayor elect. it happened not once, but twice. biden left a voice mail saying, anything i can do to help you from the white house in terms of your needs in boston, holler, man. any other marty walshs out there, we would love to hear from you. lots of reaction from "time" magazine's cover of chris christie dubbing him the elephant in the room. >> in their offense, i think they chos the least offensive. chris christie having a whale of a time. between a rock and a lard place.
that's not good and hail to the chef. i don't think any of those -- >> well, christie will likely address that and more on "meet the press" this sunday. one cartoonist getting flak for his disney icons including hillary clinton as princess 2016 and ruth bader ginsburg as supreme princess. it's all satire and there shouldn't be one art type for a hero. bill de blasio is a human, warm-blooded vertebra, exhales carbon die ox side and is a biped. >> i love that part. that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. more on the president's apology
to americans losing their health churns. kevin is weighing in. >> good morning, betty. happy friday. >> happy friday. were you surprised the president issued an apology. is it admission he lied to people saying if you like your health plan, you can keep it? >> i was surprised he apologized. i don't think he lied to the american people. this is something that just didn't go as planned. this is the hallmark piece of domestic policy for the first term. to some extent, the second term as well. the rollout hasn't gone to plan. it was a huge admission to nbc news this is not going as planned for him and how he hoped, to say the least. >> the president went on to say he's going to do everything he can to fix the problem and they are looking at a range of options. what are the options, do you have any idea? >> there's senate democrats up for re-election in 2014 who would like to see him make sure
this gets settled. senators put forth and talked to the white house, vice president biden saying wait a minute, let's think about delaying some of the deadlines beyond the march 31st deadline. i think that would be a bigger deal, betty, than the apology that president obama said yesterday. >> people want something tangling. we have to talk about the "time" magazine cover. it's calling chris christie the elephant in the room. some say it was in poor taste, could it actually work to his advantage? many americans struggle with weight loss as well. >> exactly. the day after the fda with their transfat ruling, now we have the new jersey governor and his weight. it is something that everyone can relate to, i think. beyond that, i have to tell you, betty, the real elephant in the room is whether or not chris christie can appeal to the tea party in iowa and more
