7:09 am
believes he has a good chance of winng across the board including right here in texas which is t t cruz's home state. >> thank you. joining us senator mar rubio from texas. thank you for joining us this morning. lots of great reviews and great headlines last night. >> good morning. >> but the big question this rning for you, is it too little too late? >> ell, ion't believe that. i t think it's important for people to understand they have a choice toomake. 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 the working people. >> why didn't you make this case earlier? was that a hiss take? >> because -- you know, george, i would prefer not to get into this situation where we're attacking one another but the cover he's getting from t media these days is extraordinary. you watch last knighton 0 the cable shows afterwards. they're like what is trump going to do to marco rubio like he's some sort of invincible force
7:10 am
media, i'm not saying you, but others rooting for him to win because they love first of all what it means for their ratings in a general election but here's the other, for those biased this means you will have a republicann minee who basical agrees with hillary clinton on planned parenthood and being neutral on israel, on -- even on issues regarding the economy like the takeover of our health care system by the government. he used the talking pointhat democrs consistently use, that if you don't support a government intervention in the health care industry, you're in favor ofetting people die in the streets. so, ththey're holding back and as soon as the nominee they'll open up the floodgates and hit him with a bunch of sties. it's important for republicans and conservatives to be aware of what is happening. >> he has been hting youover night in twitter calling you a chok artist, lightweight and puts up this tweet that has the cover of the drudge report this morning asking where do you win? and that is a big question. dona trump is ahead in almost every state on super tuesday.
7:11 am
>> yeah, i acknowledge i'm an underdog and have been my entire life, 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 a my whole life i've had to fight and will fight now. no way the party of reagan and conservative movement, i'll allow it 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 cims to be fighting for. >> where do you win on tuesday? if he wins eight or nine states, can he be stopped. >> he can because, first of all, if you look at tuesday most will award delegates proportionately 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 we'll win florida -- >> he's up double digits right now. >> no, he's not. that's one poll.
7:12 am
show 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 and it's not going to vote for someone who in palm beach right now is now hiring willing americans that are willing to work, instead he's importing a workforce from abroad a 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 off attacks on donald trump ted cruz. does it change the dynamic of this race? >> well, i think that -- i think marco rubio landed some pununches but i don't think there were any knockouts and one of the difficulties for marco rubio in th is he's been this aspirational, optimistic i'm not goingg to attack figure through 11 debates and showed up a very dierent marco rubio. now, he landed punches but i
7:13 am
what is the authentic part you're running in the race. in the end your question is right where can he win on tuesday? d i don't think the debate last night changed the dynamic at all. i thk donald 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 ter to have any chance to get the nomination? >> i think ted cruz i probably going to winere in texas but i think he absolutely has to win in texas. i t think this debate last night as of tuesday night when we get the results in, this date will fade in memy and will be going on to the next thing. i think donald trump and his supporters last night watched that debate and all of them cheered and anybody --- thi race is pretty set. >> nothing they put on the table willurt dald trump? >> i think the only thing that could hurt donald trump if in the aftermath some o the allegations they made and attacks they made stick over the next three days.
7:14 am
but in the afteath of the debate. >> okay, matthew dowd, thanks very much. we'll ha much more sunday on "this week." i'll be with our whole political team for a special program at 10:00 p.m. back to r robinn l.a. >> thank you very much. back now with the countdown to oscars and host chris rock taking center stage. his monologue one of the most eagerly awaited in oscar's historory. think that's safe to say and nick watt is here. >> millions of eyes on him, the boycott, jada 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 moment and testing material in comedy clubs but there i is n recording, no video of that. all we have so far are some
7:15 am
overnight he tweeted this see you sunday #blackout. previously, getting my outfit together, the space suitt referenced to nominee "the martian" maybe and almost showme 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 kw he will address the oscars so white controversy, not one plaque acting nominee on twitteraying it's the white b.e.t. awards. >> our hosost f the evening, chris rock. >> reporter: thisas last time hosted in 2005. >> great night tonight. we have, what, four black nominees tonight. kind of like the defscar jam tonight. >> reporter: with every hollywood mover and shaker in the room and 40 million plus of us watching at home. >> if you get up on the wrong
7:16 am
hole to dig yourself out of. >> reporter: i think he might relish that. >> i'm only here because ellen didn't want to do the show. no. >> reporter: other clues from his last time hosting, he will probably get politil. >> bush did some things you could never get away with at your job. >> reporter: he will definitely get personal. wield that sword. tights. >> reporter: any tips? >> i might curse. >> reporter: he won't, i hope. we like to keep it clean here at abc but -- >> he i a safe choice that you tune in and want to s see how far he's going to take things and what he's going to say. >> reporter: rock is publicly proud of hosting a very fast show last time, fast, furious and funny, expect that. now, my favorite clue came on the day he was announced as host. he tweeted, someone at abc is going to get fired for this.
7:17 am
robin, i hope that's not the case but he'll take it up to the line and beyond. >> it's a balancing act because, as w saw, he'll go there but it is a serious issue but then it's also celebrating those that were indeed nominated. we'll see what happens. fast, furious, funny, what was that? 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 pty keeps going mondayy on "gma." coming up, a closer look at the oscars contversy. more on that, lara, later. yes, robin. that's true i talked to the new executive producers about how they promise this year's oscars will be more diverse than ever. they were also very forthcoming about major changes to this year's show. i'm telling you t these are changes that you will notice and i dare say you're going to love. we'll fill you in coming up,
7:18 am

8:12 am
>> my heart is too full to tell you just how i feel, and may i say thank you, and god bless are you. >> reporter: the oscar ss seemed to be on the cutting edge of racial equality but over the next 50 years, only three more actors of color won oscars until whoopi goldberg's win for "ghost." >> i had heard people talk about how long it had been between hattie mcdaniel and another black woman. i was kind o of shockeby that. >> thank you so much. >> but the difference between my win and another woman is much shorter time. >> and the oscar goes to halle berry in "monster's ball." >>eporter: halle berry was the first african-american to win best leading actress. >> this moment is for every nameless, faceless woman of lor that now has a chance cause this door tonight has been opened.

8:15 am
su. >> and you include women because it's not limited to any particular group, we're talking women, and w we're talng about other ethnic groups that are fighting to be recognized by the academy. >> whose stories get told? whose stories get believed? whose stories get celebrated. it's an issue from the ography section of a public high school to the oscars. >> and cheryl boone isaacscs is going to be live talking to whoopi goldberg on "the view" later this morning. and i talked to bryan cranston who is very excited about his first nomination, and we talk about the nominees, they're not getting much of the discussion. it's been about the lack of diversity but he said it's not mutually exclusive. that you can celebrate this year's nomininees and ve this discussion. >> i don't think anybody cast aspersions on the guys nominated. it's been a great group.

8:17 am
>> he's got so much material, we have no idea what he's going to do. >> it is an embarrassment of riches. let's put it that way. >> reporter: this might be the most diverse telecast we've ever seen? >> oh, absolutely. >> yes. we wanted to show that like america that looked like the world so that was -- >> right from the get-go. >> most of our booking was done before the nominees were announced. >> before everything went kaboom. >> right, s the fact -- >> so the whole oscars so white has no impact on what you were already planning? >> no. >> no, we just wanted to get the biggest, best talent we could get. >> we looked at social media. who do people really, really follow. >> and, of course, the most talented people in our business. >> reporter: an array of new faces is just the beginning. hudlin and hill also completely changing the order of the awards given out. >> we're going to mix it up. >> okay. >> you know, i want people to watch d be surprised. >> we're making the show and the order r of the sw for people who love films. >> you're going to be seeing

>> i got a good feeling. you cannot not have a good feeling. their energy is remarkable. another huge change this year is with the oscar itself. this is the original prototype for the new oscar. i know you're looking at it. it looks the same. >> it does. >> it retains the same measurements, if you will, but it's a younger, fresher version, i'll say. this ithe prototype for the new oscar, which harkens back to the 1929 original oscar, subtle changes, also o for the rst time made in new york. >> oh, wonderful. >> so these are made in new york like myself. >> i love how sam said earlier, of course, oscar had a makeover. it's hollywood. >> a little freshening up for everybody. >> it doesn't hurt. i don't know if you know this but the oscars are livon abc this sunday. i don't know if you heard that. all the fun starts with our red carpet show that starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern. just want to make sure you got that, sam. >> i heard a little something
