7:04 am

this is "today" with savannah guthrie and hoda kotb from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, guys. good to see you, welcome in. it's a thursday morning. we're very happy that you're with us. >> busy one today. i'm writing down my last-minute notes. got right to tonight's presidential debate between president biden and former president trump. >> tonight's face-off is their first in four years and marks the first time that a current and former president have ever debated each other. all of this comes after a major mishap at the supreme court after a document was accidentally released revealing how it may rule on a high-stakes abortion case. >> this is the second time in two years that this has happened with a major supreme court decision. both times on abortion cases. so we have much to break down this morning. we've got it all covered. we'll start with nbc senior white house correspondent, gabe gutierrez, in position, in atlanta where the debate happens tonight. hi, gabe. >> hey, there, savannah. good morning. this is expected to be a pivotal

7:05 am

moment in this race. there's a real sense of urgency here from both campaigns to seize the narrative and adding to the drama, the top contenders from mr. trump's highly anticipated vp pick are expected to be here in atlanta tonight, doug bergum, as well as jd vance and marco rubio. today in atlanta, a presidential rematch with the stage now set between president biden and former president trump, their first face-off in our years since the two rivals clashed in a pair of tense debates. >> the radical left -- >> would you shut up, man. >> ahead of the earliest general election debate on record, president biden at camp david, out of the public eye for nearly a week, huddling with advisers and holding mock debates. president trump at his mar-a-lago estate, doing more informal prep. in the debate, president trump is expected to focus on the economy and the border while president biden will likely zero in on abortion rights, threats

7:06 am

to the democracy, some allies pointing to his state of the union address as an example to repeat. >> you can't love your country only when you win! >> reporter: it comes as president biden is facing increasing attacks on the issue from mr. trump, who recently accused the president, without evidence, of planning to use performance-enhancing drugs before the debate. >> he's sleeping now. because they want to get him good and strong, so a little before debate time, he gets a shot in the [ bleep ]. >> reporter: the biden campaign says the former president is desperate and resorting to obviously false lies. to minimize interruptions, the 90-minute debate will feature muted mics when the other candidate is talking. cnn offering a preview of how it will work. >> my volume remains constant while phil's interruption can be difficult to understand. >> there will be no live studio audience, something both campaigns agreed to, but the former president is now complaining that it's a sterile, dead room and that you have no audience to read. still unknown, according to

7:07 am

multiple sources in both campaigns whether the bitter political rivals will shake hands before or after the debate, a tradition they skipped in 2020 at the height of the pandemic. four years earlier, mr. trump and his rival, hillary clinton, also declined a handshake. for both candidates, tonight is a crucial test to appeal to skeptical voters who dislike both options. so where does this race stand going into the debate? a new poll shows mr. trump slightly leading president biden among both registered and likely voters, but it's within the poll's margin of error. underscoring other recent polls, signaling a very competitive race, hoda. >> all right, gabe gutierrez for us there in atlanta. gabe, thank you. >> now for what to watch in tonight's debate, let's bring in kristen well tur, moderator of "meet the press." they've blown off the commission on presidential debates, which is how debates have always been done. why so early? this is something that both campaigns agreed on? >> it was.

7:08 am

and part of why the biden campaign wanted this is because they want to shake up the race, they want to change some of those numbers that you just saw gabe talking about. but it comes with risks and peril. look, donald trump has been saying for a full year, i want to debate joe biden, i'll debate him every week. guess what he's doing now, he's trying to lower expectations, saying, hey, this guy does know how to debate. both of them, i think, will be judged on their performance as much as the policy they discuss. remember, that first debate back in 2020, when donald trump delivered that bombastic performance, interrupting joe biden more than 147 times, he delivered a much more measured performance in the second debate and he's being advised to do the same. for joe biden, the pressure is on him, savannah, to show that he can be strong, that he can serve another four years in office, because polls show that is voters' biggest concern about him. >> it seems like the biden team is really crossing its fingers that trump version number 1 that

7:09 am

came in so hot and over torqued in the first debate will be there tonight. trump advisers are saying, play it cool for 90 minutes. the biden team feels like a lot of americans have forgotten about the four years of the trump presidency. >> it's such a great point. here's the question, what i'll be looking for, savannah. does president biden find ways to bait president trump, to become that more bombastic version of himself, by, for example, really leaning in on things like january 6th, the criminal convictions that he is facing, among other issues that get under his skin. one thing that's notable about the debate tonight, the mics will be muted when the other candidate is speaking. when i moderated the debate back in 2020, the mics were muted after those two-minute opening statements, but then open during the general discussion. tonight's going to be different. they're going to be muted throughout the entire discussion. so how does that exact the debate? but i think that final debate in 2020 could give us a little road map of what we might -- >> we talked about the trump -- the biden's team hopes and dreams. the trump's teams hopes and

7:10 am

dreams is that biden, 81 years old, has some kind of senior moment or gaffe that gives people pause. >> absolutely. 28% of polls think that they don't think that biden is tough, is strong, is capable of serving another four years, compare that to 60% for donald trump. expect trump to lean into that with issues from the economy to abortion are going to be at the forefront forefront tonight, savannah. >> we will be watching! kristen welker, back from maternity leave, welcome back! >> thank you. >> and of course, nbc news will bring you special coverage and analysis of the first presidential debate. it will be tonight right here on nbc! meantime, as kristen mentioned, one hot-button issue set to be a major topic tonight is abortion rights. this comes after the supreme court mistakenly posted a document relating to the idaho abortion case for a brief moment yesterday. what happened? >> good morning. it was a decision day like no other, as the justices took the

7:11 am

bench, hundreds of reporters across the country sat at their computers, frantically hitting the refresh button for opinions to post online, but someone made a discovery. a document in one of the blockbuster cases this turn. only problem was, it wasn't supposed to be there. >> reporter: this morning, a supreme mistake rocking the must supreme court. a major decision on abortion prematurely released on the court's website, suggesting the high court is likely on the verge of allowing emergency abortions in idaho. the document obtained by bloomberg law online as other opinions were being released thursday quickly taken down, but bloomberg later republished it in full, showing an unsigned opinion from the court, punting on the merits of the case for now, sending it back to the lower court, while the lawsuit continues to play out. the court's spokesperson explaining the court's publications unit inadvertently and briefly uploaded a document to the court's website, but the media's rare advanced access in this case harkening back to an

7:12 am

unprecedented leak in another abortion case just two years ago in dobbs, when politico published the draft decision overturning roe v. wade. the current battle over idaho's law, which criminalizes nearly all abortions, except to save a mother's life. the biden administration sued the state, arguing that the abortion ban conflicts with federal law, which requires hospitals receive federal funding provide abortions to women facing health emergencies, a conflict doctors say puts them in a dangerous bind. >> it's a really heavy burden to carry, to have the five years of potential incarceration to take care of your patients. >> reporter: the document posted online showing deep divisions on the high court remain on abortion, some accusing their colleagues of ducking the real dispute. justice jackson saying, quote, today's decision is not a alito

7:13 am

court's decision baffling, saying the court has simply lost the will to decide easily and emotionally and highly politicized question this case presents. >> so the court hands down a decision today, and we'll see if this is among them. this happened before. there's victory for pregnant patients in idaho, while this court dawdles and the country waits, pregnant women remain in a precarious position. while justice alito calls the decision baffling. saying, the court has lost the will to decide the easy, but highly politicized question that this case presents. >> so the court hands down decisions today, and we'll see if this is among them. this has happened before, there's a precedent, unfortunately of a major case on abortion coming out before it was planned to come out. this was a leak. this seems to be some kind of clerical snafu. >> the last one was clearly different, an intentional leak, and it was months before the decision could come out. this is in the last days of the term. it could come out any day. and if it's in the publication unit, it's for formatting issues. >> it's like the last stop. >> we don't know if this is the final version or a draft, nbc hasn't verified that, but if it's there, it's in the final stages. and it's extraordinarily embarrassing to now have this

7:14 am

happen twice. >> embarrassing, and you saw the backbiting among the justices, interestingly, some saying, you guys have -- the majority here is kicking the can down the road. you're just stalling. >> both the most conservative and the most progressive on the court, jackson and alito, saying, you're ducking this issue because you don't want to discuss the merits. let's move to some breaking news, tied to boeing's push to change its culture and double down on safety. this comes after a string of incidents for the company including that max 9 door plug blowout. nbc's tom costello just spent a day seeing that assembly line firsthand. tom, you ask some tough questions. good morning. >> good morning. we have breaking news. boeing held a highly choreographed media tour and briefing in seattle, explaining what it's doing to regain the confidence of the faa, the

7:15 am

airlines, the traveling public. but this morning, the ntsb says that boeing divulged non-public information and analysis about how that non-secured door plug ever made its way on to a passenger plane. >> reporter: this morning, boeing's problems stemming from that max 9 door plug blowout has grown more serious. in a rare move, the ntsb is sanctioning boeing after its executives provided reporters with an update on how the fuselage for that alaska airlines plane made its way through the assembly line with the door plug not properly bolted in. >> we believe that plug was opened without the correct paperwork. >> reporter: the ntsb does not allow parties to an investigation to go public with information until that investigation is complete. boeing remains under ntsb, faa, and fbi investigation. the focus very much the 737 max assembly line near seattle, where boeing's reputation is on the line. the two max planes that crashed more than five years ago came off this line.

7:16 am

so did the max 9 that suffered that door plug blowout in january. ever since, faa inspectors have been on the floor. america's aviation giant has admitted to a breakdown to quality and safety control. now an all-out blitz to turn things around, starting here. tracking every job, every tool, every procedure. >> why has it taken you so long to develop a top-to-bottom approach to quality and safety management, that one would think this company should have already had in place decades ago. >> we have a strong foundation of caring deeply about safety. what i also know is, though, is we have to continually improve. and this is a chance for us to do it. >> reporter: but boeing is trying to reassure both airlines and the flying public that it's changing for the better. >> it generally takes ten days to move a max through the assembly line, but if they identify a problem, they could stop the line. right now, one of three assembly lines has a gap in it, right there. that's because they identified a

7:17 am

problem with the plane, they decided to stop it, and check it. >> reporter: that's a big change, drilling down on engineering basics, rather than increasing the production rate. >> you want to start slow and finish with a nice top. >> rate is not my priority right now. implementing safety and quality changes and listening to every member of this team is my priority. >> i am extremely confident that the actions that we took have ensured that every airplane leaving this factory is safe. >> all right, back now to that ntsb sanction this morning. the ntsb sanctioning boeing. it says boeing will no longer have access to information that investigators develop and will not be allowed to ask questions about their parties to this investigation, because the ntsb says boeing violated the rules. nbc reached out to boeing for comment this morning, this breaking in the early morning hours. we have not yet heard back. hoda? >> tom costello, i know you'll be on this story for a while.

7:18 am

thank you, tom. another major story this morning, more extreme weather hitting the country coast-to-coast. floodwaters are still devastating communities with more rain expected this week. we've got al's full forecast in just a moment, but first, nbc's jesse kirsch joins us from north sioux city, south dakota. jesse, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're getting a new closer look at some of the devastation in this community. take a look behind me of what remains of this section of a neighborhood. you can see that these roofs, these buildings have collapsed and even the ground underneath them have caved in on the edge of this lake. and this pickup truck is teetering on the edge of what remains of a driveway. you can hear the recovery continuing in the background as more communities brace for the potential of more flooding. >> reporter: overnight, intense storms sweeping through the northeast. in new jersey, wind gusts up to

7:19 am

60 miles per hour downing trees and power lines. the storm also bringing in pea-sized hail. thunderstorms causing a ground stop for hours at airports around new york and washington, d.c. this picture capturing a lightning bolt hitting the empire state building. meanwhile, the midwest is still reeling from catastrophic flooding that killed at least two people earlier this week and caused widespread damage. in north sioux city, south dakota, one resident sharing this frightening video, saying she did not get any evacuation warning before water started pouring into her home. on wednesday, another resident, pam cale, says she returned to her home of 34 years to find it filled with mud. some of her priceless family heirlooms lost. >> i saw my life is gone, in my home. we could only grab what we could carry out, so it wasn't much. >> reporter: nearly 200 miles east in mankato, floodwaters are still raging past the dam which

7:20 am

is still standing as the ground around it gives way. raging floodwaters causing parts of that community to crumble. >> it's important for people to pay attention, pay attention to local government and the messages that they are sending out, as well. >> reporter: all of this comes as more than 20 million people face a summer heat wave that won't let up. at last check, there were still around 300,000 power outages across multiple states, as, again, many americans are waking up to yet another day of tough weather. savannah? >> all right, jesse, thank you very much. >> al's at his post with more on that severe weather and where it's headed. >> good morning. there's a cold front that caused all the problems along the eastern seaboard. that's finally clearing out, but we are looking behind that, where we look through the plains, 6 million people at risk for really strong wind gusts, hurricane-force wind gusts, possibilities of tornadoes from williston to north platt.

7:21 am

that moves east tomorrow for 10 million people from minneapolis, down to kansas city and des moines. tornadoes possible, again, really strong wind gusts. the severe risk of the rockies, parts of the plains today with torrential rain that could lead to flash flooding. tomorrow, that heads into tupper midwest, additional rain may lead to river flooding, you can see from minneapolis all the way down to kansas city, we have moderate-to-major flooding. and in fact, we've got a flood risk, especially from omaha to kansas city, because of these heavy rounds of numerous rain. we're talking about anywhere from 3 to 4 inches of rain possible in and around kansas city, but even if you get 1 to 2 inches up in these areas, up into the upper plains, that's still enough to really cause some more flooding problems. we're going to get to your local forecast in the next 30 seconds. ♪ grow jobs, grow skills ♪ ♪ make the whole world go. ♪ ♪ make the green grass grow all around all around. ♪ ♪ make the green grass grow all around. ♪ at jpmorganchase,

7:27 am

this is an nbc news special report. here's savannah guthrie. hi, there. good morning. we come on the air with breaking news from the supreme court this morning. a major decision having to do with abortion and reproductive rights, specifically the right to an abortion when it is medically necessary for the health of the mother. the court has just decided to hold the issue and not decide the case. that was before it. this pitted idaho state law, one of the strictest abortion bans in the country, against federal law, and what to do when a woman comes in and her health is at risk and she may need an emergency abortion. i've got laura jarrett here, our legal correspondent kristen welker, as well. first of all, we should just say that there a copy of this this opinion was inadvertently posted on the court's website yesterday at a very cursory glance. this appears to be the same decision

7:28 am

that was released accidentally yesterday. wilk line by line it. but let's get to then. assuming that is the case and what we've read of it so far, this is a decision that the supreme court has essentially decided not to make yet. explain. they're kicking the can down the road about whether there is a real conflict between federal law that requires hospitals that receive federal funding, which is most of them at this point, to perform abortions when it is medically necessary to save a woman's health, not her life, but her health. say she comes in with an infection, something like that. but she's not on the verge of death. but she's in really dire straits. and federal law says you have to provide an emergency abortion. if a doctor thinks it's necessary in that situation, idaho says no, it's only if it's to save the life of thabortion. idaho says, no, it's only to save the life of the mother. that's the conflict, the daylight between federal and state law is what the whole case is about. >> we're talking about idaho, but there are six states that

7:29 am

have this same very, very strict abortion ban. you can only have an abortion to save the life of the mother, not the health of the mother. it's interesting that the court has said we dismissed this case. they said they shouldn't have taken the case, but they did take it and now they're saying it's a mistake. >> the issue is going to come up again. it's not just idaho. there's women in all these other states, including texas, which has the same issue between the court. that's why we see conservatives and liberals accusing each other of saying you're dodging something here. this is a dodge, a punt. this is justice alito and jackson, polar opposites, saying you have to take this on because of the conflict. it's leaving everybody in limbo. women in idaho today can get an emergency abortion, but women in texas can't and women in other

7:30 am

states can't. this is capable of repetition. you should have solved it now, reconciled the conflict. instead the lower court decision in idaho is going to stand. >> the dissenters are saying you kicked the can down the road. kristen welker, the justices aren't supposed to think about this, but there's an election upon us and the issue of abortion rights and the fallout from the dobbs decision that overturned roe v. wade reverberates through the election. >> it's one of the biggest x factors in the election. we'll see that on display tonight when the candidates face off in the first debate. former president trump says, yes, he's proudly responsible for having roe v. wade overturned. he's said politically speaking it's a very difficult issue for

7:31 am

republicans. he said this should be a matter that gets decided by the states. >> that's so interesting. he says let's let the states decide. we're seeing the state law and federal law on a collision course. >> exactly. that's the point you're going to hear, i would expect, and i've been working my phones, you'll hear president biden try to make tonight. not only is this a murky, complicated, dangerous picture for women in these states that have these strict abortion restrictions, but it's also, he will likely argue, you will see president trump try to impose a federal ban, despite the fact that trump said it's not something he's going to do. 60% of americans said they're opposed to roe v. wade having been overturned. we've seen this as an energizing issue in kansas, kentucky, ohio. it's on the ballot in nine states right now. >> does postponement, kicking the can down the road, is that

7:32 am

something that's to benefit to the trump campaign? >> it does, and here's why. ultimately speaking this would have been given president biden more grist to make the argument if they sided with idaho, look how dangerous this is for the women in idaho. i don't think he'll let it go. i think he'll make that argument. this is a murky picture and it's quite complicated. if the court decided with idaho, the administration would have talked about some executive actions to try to capitalize on that. it's going to be a big topic tonight. >> we should point out the law at issue here, the federal law, doesn't say anything about abortion. it says you have to provide emergency care. the biden administration's interpretation of that law is what started the whole thing. once they decided to have that interpretation, it was because of dobbs. alito says they were scrambling

7:33 am

to figure out what to do after the dobbs decision. they said we found this federal law that says you have to provide emergency care. the conservatives are reading into the federal law that it's about abortion. >> in real life it's happened where idaho bans the abortion except for to save the life of the mother, and you have had patients in idaho who had to be air lifted out. >> yeah and doctors say they need clarity on this. they are facing criminal prosecution if they violate this law. it's not just the loss of the medical license, it's a loss of their liberty if they violate their state ban. they're facing lawsuits from the federal sides if they violate the patient's right. they're between a rock and a hard place. >> that's why judge alito and judge jackson are saying the decision's not going to get any

7:34 am

easier. you don't need more information or legal briefs, you can decide it now. >> they're saying why did you take it in the first place? they didn't have to. it went through an odd route to get here. >> they fast tracked it and said it was too fast. >> a lower court blocked idaho's law on the same grounds. that's why alito and jackson are saying, why did you take it? >> we're waiting on whether or not former president trump is immune from criminal prosecution and to what extent that immunity might extend? >> we'll get that decision tomorrow or monday. >> and trump is trying to capitalize on all this. >> there's a debate tonight. nbc will have special coverage on that debate at time. more on our streaming channel.n go now? >> yeah, well, a law enforcement source tells us that there will

7:35 am

be no immediate action taken in the case. so we've spoken to two sources close to perry who say they were interviewedly law enforcement as part of the investigation and were asked specifically if they knew about any drug dealers or ketamine clinics that perry used. guys? >> kaylee hartung, thank you so much, we appreciate it. coming up, we are down to the final two movies in our summer blockbuster bracket. so which two made the cut? the details up next in pop start. >> and the celebration of a lifetime for indigenous tribes honoring the birth of a rare white american buffalo. white american buffalo. we're at yello wsintroducing, ned's plaque psoriasis. he thinks his flaky red patches are all people see. otezla is the #1 prescribed pill to treat plaque psoriasis. otezla can help you get clearer skin. don't use otezla if you're allergic to it. serious allergic reactions can happen. otezla may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. some people taking otezla had depression, suicidal thoughts, or weight loss. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur.

america's #1 detergent. we are back at 7:39 with in-depth today and a unique story putting a spotlight on yellowstone national park after the birth of a rare white buffalo earlier this month. our steve patterson was there and joins us with the exciting details. steve, good morning. >> hey, sheinelle, guys, good morning. this is truly once in a lifetime stuff. there has never been a record of a white calf being born inside yellowstone national park. it's a big deal for nature, but for several tribes across the country, it's a miracle. this morning, a once in a generation celebration for a miracle from mother nature. >> we are here because this is a very momentous time in our history. >> reporter: a rare white

7:41 am

american buffalo, born in the beautiful expanse of yellowstone national park, a sacred symbol to the proud men and women of the great sioux nation, fulfilling an ancient prophesy. >> did you think this would happen in your lifetime? >> no, i never thought this would happen in our generation. >> reporter: indigenous groups from across the country coming together to celebrate in song and ceremony, before the big reveal, a name. >> wakan gli. >> the return of an ancient spirit promising strength and abundance, but also a warning. >> this is the first video of a white bison calf ever being spotted in yellowstone. >> jordan creature was leading visitors when he stumbled upon

7:42 am
