7:00 am
good morning. the torch passes. president obama embracing hillary clinton as his successor in a speech taking down dunonal trum praise. >> there's never been a man, a woman, not me, not bill clinton, as hillary clinton to serve as president of the united states of america. >> he has no clue about what makes america great. actually, he has no clue period. >> folks, you cannot believe one word that comes out of donald
7:01 am
>> this morning, chelsea clinton opens up in an exclusive interview about trump's attacks on your mother. >> what was it like to watch a television and hear people in an arena chanting "lock her up." here donald trump say crooked hillary. >> what's she's planning as she introduces her mom today at the democratic national convention, july 28th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is a "today" at the democratic national convention with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from philadelphia. >> good morning, everybody. welcome to philadelphia. this is the final day of the democratic national convention but about last night. >> i was trying to figure out how to describe it. i think potent is the word that comes to mind whether you're a democratic or republican, you have to agree that was a series of very powerful speeches.
7:02 am
hillary clinton. it's her night tonight. this is the biggest speech of her career. let's go down to andrea mitchell at the wells fargo center on the convention floor. good morning, andrea. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. barack obama passed the baton to hillary clinton. a political embrace that would have seemed president obama returned to the convention stage. >> this year in this election, i'm asking you to join me to reject cynicism and reject fear and to summon what is best in us
7:03 am
next president of the united states. >> reporter: urging democrats to turn out on election day. >> there's never been a man or a woman, not me, not bill, nobody more qualified than hillary clinton to serve as president of the united states of america. >> reporter: mr. obama sought to bring the party together. >> democracy isn't a spectator sport. america isn't about, will. it's about yes, we can. >> reporter: then turning his attention to donald trump releasing a series of pointed attacks. >> the donald is not really a plan guy. our greatness does not depend on donald trump. the american dream is something no wall will ever contain. our power doesn't come from some self-declared savior promising that he alone can restore order as long as we do things his way.
7:04 am
>> reporter: besides president obama, a powerhouse lineup took to the podium cluck former new york city mayor michael bloomberg, an independent. >> i'm a new yorker. i know a con when i see one. >> reporter: vice presidential nominee tim kaine breaking into spanish. [ speaking >> he never tells you how he's going to do any of the things he says he'll do. he just says believe me. >> reporter: perhaps the most fiery speech of the night came from the current vice president joe biden. >> i know what she's passionate about. i know hillary. >> reporter: acting as chief attack dog, biden delivered. >> he's trying to tell us he cares about the middle class.
7:05 am
he has no clue about what makes america great. actually, he has no clue period. >> reporter: voters will hear from clinton herself when she takes the stage tonight after four days of hearing democrats vouch for her, this is her big chance to sell herself. matt and savannah? >> all right, andrea mitchell, thank you. >> steve kornackind conventions are very choreographed. they are a series of staged evenings. in terms of the staging, the choreography and impact of last night alone, what would you give it? what score? >> 10 out of 10. i thought they had a perfect night last night. whatever you think of president obama's policies, as a political messeng messenger, he's in a league of his own.
7:06 am
president, delivered a stronger message than tim kaine, the new nominee for vice president. they had to put him in the prime time hour. you can't bury your own vice presidential candidate. >> we've seen pieces of the speeches now but in terms of strategy, i thought the whole night had several points where it seemed they were reaching out to the center and not just center, reaching out to republicans. you had tim kaine saying if you love the party of li you had president obama reaching out. you had michael bloomberg speaking. >> when you sit in the hall, you're aware of how the hall is reacting. if you take your interview with president obama, michelle obama's speech monday night and president obama's speech last night, this is a family worried about the kind of country their daughters are going to grow up in. i thought the of two them delivered speeches designed for the tv audience to say to republicans this is who we are
7:07 am
they took on trumpism more than they took on trump. i thought that was a direct appeal to independents and swing voters. >> i want to go back to joe biden's speech. you talked about that a second ago. probably the most powerful of his career but was it impossible to sit in the room and not think what could have been? >> if you look at the polling right now, donald trump has a real shot at the presidency and the reason is he's doing much better than mitt romney or any republican recently with blue collar white voters. states like even maybe michigan. joe biden was the first major voice at this convention to talk to those voters. if there's one thing democrats might regret this week, they didn't focus on that enough. >> very quickly, i thought it was interesting that the president and tim kaine took on the issue of trusting hillary. tim kaine made it direct. you can trust hillary because. do you think that was effective to take on that elephant in the room? >> highlights her vulnerability. we talked about 20-point deficit
7:08 am
questions of trustworthiness. they have to make this case every day until november if they want to win. donald trump's extraordinary call during a news conference for russia to hack into hillary clinton's e-mails. first, nbc's hallie jackson is here with the heated reaction. hallie, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. most of that criticism right now coming from democrats with trump's campaign trying to push back. today donald trump himself facing new fallout. >> thank you. >> reporter: center stage in ohio overnight. >> we're going to win ohio. >> reporter: donald trump at the center of a worldwide controversy for encouraging espionage from the kremlin against hillary clinton. >> russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. >> reporter: now new backlash. >> he asked the russians to
7:09 am
think about that. it is inconceivable to me that any presidential candidate would be that irresponsible. >> reporter: trump's campaign immediately trying to walk back his suggestion russia should find clinton's personal deleted e-mails. but trump doubling down tweeting perhaps any country should share them with the fbi and to nbc's katy tur. >> do you have qualms about interfere, to hack into a system of anybody's in this country? >> it's up to the president. let the president talk to them. >> does that not give you pause? >> no. a person in our government would delete or get rid of 33,000 e-mails. that gives me a big problem. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan's office emphasized putin should stay out of this election. but no one in gop leadership
7:10 am
most republicans staying silent. many national security experts stunned by trump's stance. former nsa director hiked hayden appointed by george w. bush telling bloomberg, perhaps he doesn't know what he's talking about and a trump gaff making headlines. >> tim kaine, who did a terrible job in new jersey. first act he did in new jersey was asked for $4 billion tax increase. not very popular in new jersey. he still isn't. >> the problem, tim kaine was the governor of virginia, not new jersey. trump probably thinking of tom ke keen. trump on the campaign trail later today. let's turn back to steve and nicole. is this one of those occasions where you have something that gets -- foreign policy establishment totally exercised
7:11 am
outrage but if you're a trump voter and supporter, good for you. there he goes telling it like it is. >> i don't imagine donald trump is going to lose any support he already has because of this. the question though is donald trump pulled into the lead in one poll. lagged behind in the others. those few swing voters that there are, does this unnerve them. that's the potential problem. >> in cleveland last week on the floor of the arena they were chanting lock her up. let me show you the cover new york daily news. does it have legs? >> i talked to them yesterday on the way into the arena and they view the day as success because they're in the news. the trump's campaign goal of the week was to get in the headlines every day to knock democrats off message. >> what will he say tomorrow to take the attention away from hillary's speech tonight?
7:12 am
outrageous enough that we're talking about them. his infinity for all things putin is alarming to americans and his instinct to hug putin and the russians is alarming. i am surprised by the lack of outrage over asking russians to spy on an american >> steve kornacki, nicole wallace, thank you as always. hillary clinton will address the convention tonight. it's her daughter chelsea's job to introduce her. we spoke with her exclusively as she was putting the finishing touches on her speech and i started by asking chelsea what it will feel like to watch her mother accept the democratic nomination for president. >> i'll try really hard to not cry. i just think my heart will
7:13 am
me because i am now a mom. as proud as i am of my mom, it's about my children. i couldn't imagine a better president for them. i couldn't imagine a better grandmother for them either. just standing there thinking about my children looking at my mom, it will be overwhelming. >> you'll set the table in a way for the most important speech of her life. what do you want to say about her? that people don't know because your mom, your dad, your family, they've been in the public eye for >> i hope to convey even just a small sense of why i am so proud and grateful to be her daughter. why i'm grateful for the example she set for me as a mom. i hope that people will just get a sense of why i'm so proud to be standing -- >> it will be a deeply personal speech. this is not a speech that will try to separate her from donald trump? >> i'm going to talk as her daughter. i'm an only child.
7:14 am
understand even more when i'm done than when i started about why i love her so much and admire her so much. >> you know your mom as well as anyone. you hear the things that are said about her all the time. lack of trust. people have negative comments and negative ratings are high. there has to be a disconnect in your mind between the person you know. how do you explain the disconnect? >> it is such a what you were saying and what we heard last week in cleveland, that's not the person that i know. that's not the person that i grew up with that i'm so proud to stand beside and introduce here in philadelphia. >> coming up in our next half hour, we'll have more of our conversation with chelsea clinton including what she would say to ivanka trump about her personal attacks on the clinton
7:15 am
msnbc will have complete coverage of the convention all day long leading up to hillary clinton's speech at 10:00 eastern, 7:00 pacific here on nbc. a scary moment for pope francis. he tripped on a step and he falls to the ground. the 79 year old is okay. he was helped back to his feet and finished the mass. francis is making poland for world youth day. breaking news overnight. an american airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing in dallas after flames could be seen shooting out of one of its engines. it happened shortly after takeoff from the dallas-ft. worth airport on a flight headed for seattle. the pilot reported an engine problem and turned that plane around. luckily no one was injured. powerball fever is growing this morning. the jackpot is soaring once again.

will be introduced by her daughter, chelsea. we showed you part of our exclusive interview with her in our last half hour. chelsea had more to say about the history that will be made in philadelphia tonight. >> for the current and next president of the united states, bill clinton. >> i move that hillary clinton be selected as nominee of the democratic party for president. >> you are the onl receive the democratic nomination for president. how do you put that in perspective? >> a lot of gratitude. incredibly grateful to my parents for always believing in hard work and believing in never giving up. also a lot of humility. i feel it's important to me to
7:32 am
opportunity and this trust they've been given by democrats and i certainly hope my mom will prevail in november. >> as a daughter, chelsea, i don't know where you were, what was it like to sit and watch a television and hear people in an arena chanting "lock her up." hear donald trump say crooked hillary. how do you digest that? >> matt, as proud as i am as a now is as a mother. when i was watching what was happening, what was being said in cleveland last week, i kept thinking about what my mom had said repeatedly when people asked her similar questions. she's tough. she can take whatever people say about her. >> it's harder for a family member. >> as a mom, what i found so disturbing were things that were being said on a national stage. on the stage and off the stage around the convention about women, about minorities, about
7:33 am
that's not what i want my children to hear. that's not representative of the country that i want my children to grow up in. and so that actually i found far more upsetting as a mom, as a woman, as an american and even as my mother's daughter than anything they said about my mom. >> i wonder if you can have an impact here as a daughter. by the way, this goes both ways. your mom and her surrogates have been out there saying some pretty terrible things about donald trump calling him a fraud and a bigot and t you're a daughter. you know ivanka trump. would you consider her a friend? >> absolutely. >> why not convene a summit? a children's summit. maybe just a daughter summit. you and ivanka sit down over a cup of coffee and discuss tone and discuss what it's like to hear those things coming out of the other candidate's mouth about the person that you love. >> it never occurred to me.
7:34 am
when ivanka introduced her dad that she's so proud of him. i hope it will be at least as clear why i'm so proud of my mom when i introduce her here in philadelphia. and yet clearly ivanka and i have different views about who we think should be our president and who we think -- >> you're both daughters. you both love these people. it's clear, chelsea, that donald trump is willing to bring up some of the darkest moments of your family's past as an issue. wo and say that shouldn't fit into the rules of engagement? >> well, i don't expect her to always have to defend her father. i mean, i think it's clear that mr. trump is running his campaign and saying what he thinks is important in this election. i think what we're seeing here in philadelphia is a strong contrast to that. my mother is not engaging in
7:35 am
>> did you write your own speech? >> i was breastfeeding aiden and practicing with megan and she was giving me feedback and i was exchanging ideas. even aiden contributed to the speech. >> so much discussion about what your dad would be called if your mom becomes the next president of the united states. have you talked about it at home? >> we talked about it because we've been asked about it. >> what d called? >> he likes to harken back to irish roots, he would like to be called first laddie. i'm voting for first gentleman. >> i decided after only one day of matt love, i'm going to first laddie. i like that better. >> it has a ring to it. >> interesting to see how she does tonight. i don't think she loves the spotlight. stepping on that stage is going to be a big deal for her. >> can you imagine the pressure for any of these children of
7:36 am
let's get a check of the weather now from our first forecaster, al roker. >> great crowd here hanging out. and it is hot and it is humid. we've got one more day of this heat and humidity to talk about. big area of high pressure off the east coast pumping up that warm humid air. it will continue for today. look at these feels-like temperatures. feels like 95 in atlanta. jacksonville, 107. 109 in in d.c., 101. there is some sweet heat relief coming. behind this cold front temperatures will start dropping. so look at what you've got as you get into the midwest. temperatures in the mid 80s to lower 80s. that will eventually make its way into the east coast but out west we are looking at some more hot weather. look at this. finally new york city, 78 by sunday. boston, 77. d.c., 86. charleston, 84. pittsburgh will see a

8:21 am
for president some day and everyone says he had had terrific wife, that was bill and hillary clinton. i've gotten to know them. there's been a lot of twist and turns since i first heard about them. she's been a very public figure for more than 30 years. with bill and without him. and everyone has an opinion. hillary's long journey had an unlikely beginning. she was a gold water girl in a republican family. in college, feminine and anti-war politics. her commencement speech against the war was the beginning of her public life. >> challenge now is to practice politics is the art of making what appears to be impossible, possible. >> at yale law school, she met an equally ambitious politically passionate soul mate. it was the beginning of a storied and stormy relationship. public in good times and bad. hillary went home with bill to

8:23 am
>> hillary easily won a senate seat in new york. it was the perfect launching pad for president. but it was a newcomer's turn. president obama, however, gave her a high profile consolation prize, secretary of state. and she became a nonstop globetrotter. benghazi, libya, republicans made it her fault. even though their own investigations couldn't quite close the deal to be an election away from the white house with the former president at her side. a long journey with a long way to go. i think of all of the people i've known in public life, no greater contrast between the public hillary that you see on stage and the private one. private one she's very attentive. a wicked sense of humor. she seems to remember everything she's ever learned about your family or friends and cares
