physician, dr. oz, reviewing the results of a recent physical. how much will be shared remains unclear. >> look, the metaphor for me, is this is a doctor's office, the studio. so i'm not going to ask questions she doesn't want to have answered. >> reporter: as for the e-mails, the fbi is investigating russian hacks, but this morning we have no knowledge whether they're investigating hacks specifically targeting colin powell's e-mails. donald trump last night lashed out at president obama. here's what he tweeted in response to the president's remarks. writing, why isn't president obama working instead of campaigning for hillary clinton? for his sake, the president's approval rating right now stands at 58%. >> all right. peter alexander, thank you. let's turn to nicolle wallace, our analyst. good morning to you. >> good morning, you guys. >> let's set this up. colin powell, former republican secretary of state under george w. bush, but also endorsed obama. these e-mails are out. there's a little something for everybody there. on the one hand, he calls the birther movement racist.
7:06 am
he talks about trump is a national disgrace and says the clinton campaign is trying to pin this on him. who does it help, who does it hurt? will it matter. >> it it solves a mystery as to why anyone isn't endorsed in this race. it's a human being's nightmare to have their most personal thoughts shared around the world. he's a human being. he wrote these things he thought in private and thought they would stay private. that said, he's also a highly respected figure in a political climate where there aren't too many of them. you can count them on both hands. so i think it will cut both of them a little bit. i think his critiques -- he's still a person widely respected by a broad swath of the middle of the country, which is -- we talk a lot in the squeaky wheels get the grease and usually on the far right and far left. the selection will be decided at this point by people whose minds are still hope. and to those people, colin powell has play. >> you know, he calls donald trump an international pariah. no question when you read these
7:07 am
e-mails he's got nothing but disdain and disgust for donald trump. but he does talk a lot about hillary clinton too. and one of the subjects, march of 2015 now. we're talking about he writes this "she doesn't look good," of hillary clinton. "she's working herself to death." questions from people like colin powell, people who are perhaps even partial to her, if you read the e-mails, about her health. >> and he says she doesn't look good on hd-tv. none of us do. but, you know, i think this will be seen -- it will depend on which side you're standing, right? which side of the divide you stand on. if you're rudy guiliani and have been pressing this case for a long time, then you'll seize on to this and say, ha! running for president is a grind. it is grueling. you look tired because you are tired. but on the other hand, the comments about donald trump are some of the harshest yet. and mike pence, his running mate, on capitol hill, there is
7:08 am
a lot of disgust with the tone and tenor of his candidacy. and when you see what someone like colin powell said in private, where he didn't hold back, he called him a national disgrace. >> tough, tough words. >> nicole, you are not done. we have one more thing we want to talk to you about. stand by there. >> all right. that's right. the trump campaign is fighting back this morning after new york's attorney general revealed he's open to inquiry to trump's charitable foundation. hallie jackson has more on that. good morning. >> hi. good morning to you. donald trump's team insisting this new inquiry is purely political, as new york's ag looks into who trump's foundation donated to, and what that money went toward. donald trump's team touting his charity. >> this is a man who has given away tens of millions of dollars. >> donald trump has been incredibly generous over the course of his life. >> but today his philanthropy under fire after the "washington
7:09 am
post" raised questions about his foundation. the new york attorney general's office opening an inquiry, looking into what a source familiar with the probe calls "trumping transactions." this after the post reported several charities never received the money trump's foundation said it gave. and found $20,000 seems to have been spent on a six foot tall portrait of trump himself. t getting the attention of president obama. >> the other candidate foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a six-foot-tall painting of himself. he had the taste not to go for the ten-foot version. >> reporter: the inquiry, led by new york's ag, erich schneider man. >> we have been looking into the trump foundation to make sure it's compliant with the laws that govern charities in new york. >> schneiderman, a democrat, has tangled with trump before, suing him over trump university. a top trump aide now calling the
7:10 am
ag, a partisan hack, adding, quote, this is nothing more than another left wing hit job designed to distract from crooked hillary clinton's disastrous week. trump's recent donations include $1 million to a veteran's group. but the post found he hasn't contributed to his own foundation since 2008. instead, using other people's money to make charitable gifts. >> before this may, before that million dollars he gave to veterans under a lot of media pressure, when was the last time he gave any of his own money to a charity and how much did he give? and what was his history out of his own pocket? >> reporter: questions that could be answered if trump releases his tax returns. >> i give a lot of money to charity. i think i revealed over a period of years, i've given over $100 million to charity. >> reporter: and by the way, we should mention that our parent company, nbc universal, donated $500,000 to trump's foundation back in 2012. this morning, hillary clinton's team is out with a new web
7:11 am
video. take a look. hitting trump on some of these questions. trump has already been forced to pay a penalty tax to the irs for a donation to a group associated with florida's attorney general. that was right around the time her office was considering, but did not pursue, an investigation into trump university. both she and trump have denied any wrongdoing. willie, savannah, back to you. >> thank you. let's bring in msnbc's chief legal correspondent, ari melbourne and in this cas nicol with us as well. how does an inquiry proceed? >> a review of whether there were any laws in new york state broken regarding these charities. since 2008, this trump family foundation hasn't had a lot of trump or family. and that may be news and make voters take a second look whether this is a charity at all. >> the question is, is there a legal problem? to be clear, this attorney general's investigation would not be a criminal investigation. correct? >> right. it is very unlikely, based on
7:12 am
what we know that anyone would be at risk of going to jail here. the question is whether these laws that governor charities in new york were violated and whether in some way either there was false accounting or this so-called nonprofit was actually being used for enough profitable purposes the hammer would come down. >> the trump campaign has said erich schneiderman is a hillary supporter, has endorsed hillary clinton, has gone after donald trump with a lawsuit on trump university and now going after the foundation. do you see a conflict of interest here? >> no conflict in the legal sense of the word. this is a very serious charge from the trump campaign last night. basically saying that this prosecutor is trying to do this for political purposes. if that were true, that itself would be a crime. the trump campaign hasn't put out any evidence that. we are eight weeks out from an election, it's understandable people are wondering what's going on here. no evidence that attorney general schneiderman is doing anything other than an investigation. >> that brings me nicely to nicole and the political questions that surround this.
7:13 am
first of all, do you think that voters who are paying attention will care about this issue, this notion that trump, according to this reporting, is not putting his own money in the foundation, is taking money and then taking credit for donations? and in one case, spending this money that was supposed to be for charity on a portrait of himself? >> yeah -- >> how does that play? >> a portrait of yourself is a thing you need to book a shrink for that. i think this idea that his charity didn't do enough good is really -- to be so rich that you have a charity is really hard to wrap your brain around. and not a lot of people think you're bad if you'r good charit went astray. this is best used as a defensive weapon to guard the clinton camp against criticisms about their charity. >> the clinton foundation -- >> they're not -- >> that criticism has gotten legs. >> because of the interlay with the state department. which is a u.s. government entity. that's where i think she's been vulnerable. not the actual work of the actual charity. the clinton foundation became a
7:14 am
liability because there were allegations that it was connected with some favors for pay by the u.s. government. i think this will become sort of a battle between two charities. you heard president obama frame it up pretty well saying hillary clinton's charity saves lives, donald trump's charity did what you just described, bought a very tall portrait of donald trump. >> we'll see if they use this on the trail. thank you. another high-profile cyberattack getting a lot of attention this morning. the anti doping agency, exposing the confidential medical information of several star american athletes. here's nbc's national correspondent, miguel almaguer. >> reporter: the victims are some of team usa's top athletes. simone biles. serena and venus williams. and wnba stars. the world anti doping agency says its confidential medical files were hacked by a russian
7:15 am
espionage group and the information made public. it happened one month after most russian athletes were banned from the olympic games after a widespread doping scandal. >> it's really a shame. and quite despicable, frankly, that a group of people would attack innocent athletes to divert attention away from the obvious state-run doping system in the state of russia. >>. >> the american athletes are firing back. simone biles, who has a medical exemption to take a banned substance after she was diagnosed with adhd, says on twitter, nothing to be ashamed. nothing i'm afraid to let people know. venus williams says she followed the rules. della done, i would like to thank the hackers for making the world aware i take a medication for a condition i've been diagnosed with. >> even your private information is no longer safe. >> reporter: w.a.d.a. says the
7:16 am
information was stolen by fancy bears, the same group tied to the recent hack of the democratic national committee. the russian government denies any involvement. this morning, the doping agency says the attacks targeting our athletes may not be over. for "today," miguel almaguer, nbc news. now to that disturbing video we showed you at the top of the show. a driver slamming his car into three police officers in phoenix, arizona. tamron is here with the latest on that story. >> good morning. this is so difficult to watch. authorities say that act was intentional. the three officers standing outside of a gas station when the driver steered directly at them. dramatic surveillance video released overnight shows the moment of a plan plowed his car into three police officers at a phoenix gas station. the force of the impact sending one of the officers flying into the air and through the store's window. another camera angle shows the driver pulling up to a gas pump. a few minutes later,
7:17 am
accelerating, heading straight for the officers, including an eight-year veteran, a sergeant with more than 18 years experience. and a rookie who had just completed field training and was on his first official shift. >> our phoenix police officers were targeted. >> these officers could have easily been killed. and i thank god that we're not planning three funerals right now. >> reporter: the two officers struck by the vehicles sustained serious but nonlife threatening injuries. of the third officer was able to jump out of the way. >> unbelievable. our officer that hits the front of the glass and smashes the glass gets back up and engages in the fight to take the suspect in custody. >> reporter: the suspect, 44-year-old mark payne, struggled with the officers before they were able to take him into custody. he's been charged with three counts of attempted first degree murder. payne was treated briefly at an area hospital. police say they do not yet know what motivated that vicious attack. it is unbelievable to see that. >> hard to watch. >> nonlife threatening. >> tough. >> happy they're okay. tamron, thanks very much.
7:18 am
let's take a turn now. dylan watching the weather and a new storm to worry about. >> as of the 11:00 p.m. update last night, a tropical storm sitting off the coast of florida and georgia. it is bringing heavy rain to the southeast. take a look at jacksonville florida, yesterday. very gusty winds. an inch-and-a-half of much-needed rain yesterday. this is only the first tropical storm ever to form over florida itself. only about 2% of storms form over land. and that's what happened with this one. so it was a very interesting case. and now we have most of our heavy rain across northeastern georgia. we also have heavier rain moving into the charleston area. winds still at 40 miles per hour. and this storm, while it will weaken, is really not moving all that quickly. here you see by friday, 2:00 a.m., winds still up to 25 miles per hour. but it's just sitting across parts of georgia. so we are going to see the rain continue with flash flood watches in effect, because of the fact we could see some flash flooding. charleston could end up with as

7:41 am
goodell, exclusively, and ask him how quickly he believes this money will change the game. >> i think it will change the game immediately. we have invested significantly in the past to further research. but we have also not waited on research. we have made rule changes. we have made changes in our equipment. we have done things to improve the way the game is played. we have changed our protocols to make sure that we are monitoring the play more closely, and we can get care to our players at the earliest possible opportunity. so we're going to invest in science. some of that will take a few years to develop. but we think we're changing the game today, matt. >> i remember 2009, commissioner, you testified before congress. and it was a representative who talked to you and said that she compared the nfl to the tobacco industry. and she said where the tobacco industry denied the connection between cigarette smoking and cancer, she felt that the nfl had denied the connection

between the game and head injuries. >> well, i disagree entirely with that position. because of all of the work we have done. in fact, in 2009/2010, was the time we put that on our poster. it will sit in our locker room. and that poster says that if your brain injuries and repetitive brain contact is not properly managed, then that can lead to long-term health consequences. so i think we have been the leader in this area. we have been very clear about the steps that we have had to take to make our game safer. >> so let's talk about changes. i remember an example last season case keenum and the rams. and we all watched as he took a hit and went down and his head hit the turf, and he grabbed his head. and i think everybody watching said "he's got a concussion." and nothing happened. stayed in the game. and when you were watching that footage, what was your first reaction? >> that our protocol was violated. that that's not right.

that case should have gotten medical treatment. and what we did is, we worked to try to evaluate our medical protocols and improve on them and make sure they're properly communicated to every medical personnel in the league. and we did that with the nfl players association. and in the off season, we just announced that -- a few weeks ago, we strengthened that so if anyone does violate our protocol on the team level, they are subject to discipline. >> did anyone get fired for that, anyone lose their job over that? >> no. again, we watch the protocols, we make sure they're followed. it was a medical judgment. it's what we always want to rely on. but, no. but i think in the future, there's going to be discipline if we see protocol being broken. >> it's going to sound like a strange question. do the fans care about this? i mean, for all of the years that the data on concussions and ct and things like that has been mounting, and for all the years that there have been headlines outs there that say it's the
7:44 am
death of the nfl, the game continues to grow and the ratings on television continue to grow. it's a little hard to understand. do you think the fans care? >> yes. i very much so. and i hear from our fans on that. they care about our players. they care about them today. they care about them in the future. and they want to know that we're taking care of them. and we're doing the best we can to protect them while they're playing. and for the years after they get away from the game. >> some fans who have read the headlines, commissioner, are going to hear about this initiative and say, "i wonder if this is as much about protecting players as it is protecting the image of the nfl. the brand of the nfl." how would you respond to that? >> matt, i've been in this game for 35 years. i've known players, i care about our players. i respect what they do on and off the field. some of them i've known for 30 years, when i worked for the jets as an intern. and they're still my friends. they're sitting with me at the game on sunday. so i care about these players. >> i did an interview with brett favre a while back. and he said he doesn't have a son, but he said if he did, he
7:45 am
would be extremely reluctant to let his son play football. that's the lifeblood of a league. that is the next generation of players. what's your message to parents? >> well, matt, listen. i understand the skepticism of the nfl. but let me just go to the american academy of pediatrics. they have looked at this issue. of young kids coming into football. and they have said, it's about proper coaching. improve the techniques. do the things necessary to limit contacts. those are changes that we have been making. we've seen that on every level of football. i went by a youth football practice the other day and was watching them. i see how they're teaching the game differently. that's great for football but it's also great for all sports. >> in his open letter the commissioner writes that, quote, we can and will do better in hope of better medical care and improvement to equipment, including helmets and playing surfac surfaces. we should note that nbc is a

reading glasses. medical contributor, dr. john torres, is here to explain. >> thanks to this newly approved procedure, we're all about a five-minute procedure away from much, much clearer vision. we were with the first patient in the nation to undergo this procedure. it's amazing. this is a view for a billion people worldwide. the blurry world of far-sightedness caused by aging. it affects more than 110 million americans usually beginning around the age of 40. >> they're fuzzy. just even looking pretty much anything close up. everything looks a little fuzzy or blurred. >> reporter: it's why sherry owns nine pairs of reading glasses. >> i usually have three upstairs and three downstairs. some in my purse. >> reporter: that blurry vision is caused by the eye losing flexibility. >> everyone gets this, whether you're near-sighted, far-sighted or whether you've had lasik or
8:11 am
not. >> just part of getting older. >> part of getting older. >> but maybe not for long. sherry is about to become the first person in the nation to get an innovative device since it was approved by the fda that reshapes part of your eye. >> all set to go. >> reporter: about half the size of a pencil eraser, it's a tiny implant called the raindrop, made mostly with water and helps your cornea focus better, improving vision for the far-sighted, like sherry. the procedure takes less than five minutes. >> dr. torres can take a look there. >> reporter: similar to lasik surgery, which corrects nearsightedne nearsightedness, doctors use a laser to create a pocket in the cornea, and then the implant is inserted. it costs about $3,000 and is not covered by insurance. >> we just started a whole new era in ophthalmology. >> reporter: doctors say there is a slight risk of seeing a halo or a glare. >> is that better than before? >> yeah. i couldn't get to that line before. >> excellent. >> reporter: but your world, like sherry's, could be clearer in 15 minutes after surgery.
8:12 am
>> exciting? >> no more cheaters. >> there you go. >> dr. torres, i speak for a lot of excited people who fumble around looking for their reading glasses. this is huge news. is this available now through your ophthalmologist? >> it is available. these are the ones that went to the actual clinical trial. a few handful that have it. by the end year, more. by next year even more. i think you're going to see it widely available in the next year or two. >> any side effects people should be worried about? >> like anything, there are side effects. the biggest with this one is halo and glare. most people get used to it fairly quickly. an infection. some people get dry eyes and have to take care of it over the years. for people like you saw there with sherry, they see quickly, and it's one of the things -- she is getting rid of her reading glasses. >> combine this with lasik, we're coming a long way. let's head over to dylan for a look at the weather. >> a cold front is going to change everything temperature wise. you can see it's located across northern new england, stretches back through northern missouri. not a whole lot of rain with it.
8:13 am
we could use some rain in the northeast. but as the front moves through, you'll notice the drop in temperatures. near 90 today back down into the 70s and 80s as we go into tomorrow. so for some areas, we're looking at a 15 to 20 degree temp drop. so with isolated storms, there is a chance we could end up with a pocket of rain and gusty winds, especially across new england. we are going to see this front clear the area and then back to sunshine tomorrow with, again, cooler good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. get ready for a hot one today. near record temperatures in the philadelphia. into the low 90s. the record high is 92 degrees. sunshine and a few clouds later this afternoon. a big warmup for the suburbs and for the lehigh valley. 90 in lansdale and allentown. upper 80s for kutztown. clouds will be increasing during the evening hours in the lehigh valley. for new jersey, mostly sunny skies, 91 degrees in hammonton. while at the shore, sea breeze keeps temperatures in the 80s. plenty of sunshine in delaware. have a great day.
8:14 am
and that's your latest forecast. guys? >> all right, dylan. thank you so much. we're already chitchatting hoda, carson. the gang is here. >> time for trending. >> i have a good one to lead off. this is a video of what happens when one kid is bigger than everybody else on the field. this is a rugby match. australia. this boy is so dominant, his team just hands him the ball and turns him loose. >> whoa! >> this is insane. right and left! >> come on.on. >> he's running towards kids. >> he is. whoa! 30 yards the other way. >> true. >> savannah, that's what beast mode is. >> apparently, no hard feelings. one parent from the opposing team said, look, it was just great to watch. wow. >> whoa! >> you're right. >> he's going to run on the field and grab my son. >> i know. >> throw him over the shoulders and i would run from that kid.

>> run, john, run! >> by the way, he's fast too. >> break-away speed. let's get him in the nfl draft. >> in the olympics, sign the kid up. >> let's stick with the sports theme this morning. a qualifying race in the boston marathon getting attention this morning for all of the wrong reasons. watch this. the route for the lehigh valley marathon. goes over train tracks that are supposed to be clear for the race. but as you can see -- >> oh, no. >> the train tracks were active. runners had to come to a complete halt at the seven-mile mark, because the freight train rolled by for ten minutes. as you know, seemed like ten hours. and apparently that meant -- that was the difference between qualifying or not qualifying for the boston marathon. >> they didn't qualify? >> bummer, yes. >> oh, terrible! >> some of the runners were so desperate, they tried to leap through the gaps. yes. so -- >> waiting at the red light for the sign was long. >> i guess they're going to look at the times, so maybe a chance to get into it.
8:16 am
>> see where you were -- >> that happens at the tour de fran france. they take that time back. >> they do? >> they need to do that. >> if we were running, i would be thrilled. >> what if you saw the train coming, and you were sizing it up. like i'm going to go for it. >> and make it. >> am i going to make it? >> do you want to be in the boston marathon or not? tuesday we showed you the fake tom brady in all its horrifying glory. the guy who is eerily realistic spotted at the pats-cardinals game and taking photos. >> looked so real -- even people here in the studio. oh, my gosh, so creepy. well, it's here. and, of course, the executive editor -- >> there's your moment. >> met tom brady. >> wow. >> one big fan. i have to say, dan, you can't speak, because you have the mask. so you just sit there and look pretty, slash creepy. but tell us -- you're from bleacher report. what is this about? what was the purpose? >> bleeper report, we're
