7:03 am
with firsts and all the hallmarks of divided government. the government shutdown careening toward a third week as democrats passed legislation to reopen it overnight. >> the big is passed. >> but with no new funding for the president's border wall, mr. trump already vowing to veto it. >> you have no border security without the wall. we have had no deal without a wall. >> take yes for an answer. open up government. >> and it is not just democrats. the first cracks are beginning to show in the republican party. gop senators corey gardener and susan collins calling on the president to compromise. collins saying overnight that an agreement should not be held hostage to this debate over border security. a jarring contrast to celebrations on the house floor after a historic day on capitol hill. >> congratulations, madam speaker.

7:06 am
nothing wrong, had the most successful years of any president. >> all right. thank you. we're going to bring in chuck todd. just as kristin said, both sides seem to be locked in. how do you think this thing finally ends? >> i think that's a great question. usually in washington when you are at an impasse you do a couple of things. somebody folds because the political heat is too much or you make the deal much bigger, right? so in an instance like this, suddenly we're having this fight over -- this small fight over wall funding. suddenly dreamers, daca for the ball become a deal or something like that. but in the short term, i don't see how this ends. democrats don't have a political incentive to compromise with the president and right now it is republicaning breaking rank with the party. i don't see how the president is somehow going to give in yet. that's just not his style. so i do think we will be here for a while. >> i was just reading a quote
7:07 am
from senator lindsey graham who sometimes has the ear of the president. he says if president trump gives in on the shutdown, his presidency is probably over. if he's hearing that from the right flank, what incentive does he have to deal? and the democrats made clear they don't want to deal. >> the president, it's funny, remember the infamous chuck and nancy the first time he almost cut a deal with chuck and nancy, the first time daca for the wall, the legislation to protect dreamers, those kids brought here by their parents illegally. when the president supported that or appeared to support that for a couple days, his base went crazy. i don't think he thinks he can move that all. so the president is convinced with what lindsey graham said. i don't think that's true. it is only true if you believe it. but in this case, the president does believe this and so if that's what he's believing, then you tell me what his incentive is to somehow compromise. >> no, no. we ask the questions here, chuck.
7:08 am
>> i don't see his ego is too much in the way here. he's talked about it himself. he's like, i can't take a compromise deal like this. it will make me look bad. that's the position we're in now. >> thank you. you will have a lot more on sunday on "meet the press." >> that's right. also this morning, investigators in florida trying to piece together the cause of that fiery crash near gainesville. at least seven people were killed when two trucks and tw c >> reporter: a portion of interstate 75, one of the three lanes heading south remained closed. investigators hoping the daylight hours will give them an opportunity to better assess the scene so they can determine who is at fault. overnight investigators witnessed the horrifying crash, trying to piece together what happened. the accident thursday afternoon
7:09 am
involving two tractor trailers, a passenger van and a mid size sedan. >> and the fire was so big and so strong and so bad. >> all of the vehicles catching fire after 50 gallons of diesel fuel spilled and quickly became a terrifying inferno. >> any time you have a truck that's involved and you have that much, you know, metal scraping each other and that type of collision, there is a high probability you could have a fire. >> backing up traffic as far as the eye can see. >> we're early in the investigation. we got a lot of vehicles up there. so we are trying to figure that out, trying to piece it together. >> at least seven people dead. eight more injured. many of the injuries critical. a local sheriffs office tweeting the emergency required all hands on deck. terrifying footage showing the
7:10 am
huge fire evngulfing the vehicles. social media users capturing the crash from multiple angles. many first responders caring for the injured in the middle of the roaddebris. overnight investigators combing through the wreckage looking for clues hoping to find out what caused this horrible accident. >> the accident so gruesome the florida highway parole is yet to identify all of those who died here. in good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the reward here is now up to $100,000. one of the young witnesses inside that car is now telling us about her terrifying glimpse of the gunman. this morning authorities in

houston hope this new composite sketch will help lead them to jasmine's killer. >> what will you miss most about your sister? >> her smile. >> she was with her mother and three sisters on a coffee run early sunday morning when investigators say a man in his 30s or 40s opened fire, killing the seven-year-old in the backseat. >> he had blue eyes. he had a hoodie on. >> the red pickup track started off on their passenger side, switched lanes behind them and pulled up to the driver's side. >> he had enough time to know that it was a woman with kids in the car. >> do you remember how many gunshots there were. >> i don't know. but i know he finished his clip. he finished. he emptied out his gun. >> investigators have not determined the motive, but jasmine's mother has her own theory. >> this is something that i believe was a hate crime. >> authorities are looking into whether this deadly encounter may have been connected to an
7:12 am
unsolved shooting in the same area in 2018. so far no clear link. >> once i determine who did it, then we'll understand motive. >> now, the #justiceforjasmine is drawing attention. shaquille o'neal has offered to pay for her funeral and hopkins has offered to donate his paycheck in his honor. >> what i can do that's nothing. that won't bring back a person. but it's the least i can do. >> investigators now hope the new composite sketch will lead to a break in the case. they are analyzing new bullet casings found at the scene to match them up with other crimes. a community rally is planned for tomorrow and jasmine's funeral is set for tuesday. >> such a sad story. thank you. we move on now. lots to get to this morning. there is a new twist in the

7:14 am
of highs to me because there hasn't been a lot of african-american comedians to do it. >> he bowed out after critics condemned his routines. >> i have yet to go back to that version of immature comedian i once was. i moved on. i'm a grown man. i'm cultured. i'm a guy that understands now. i look at life through a different lens. and because of that, i live it a different way. i don't want to step on that stage and make that night about me and my past when you got people that have worked hard to step on that stage for the first time and receive an award. >> ellen calling their conversation incredible and honest. >> i think it is perfect that all this happened because there has to be a conversation about homophobia, whatever they did and whoever is trying to hurt
7:15 am
you, it brought up you reminding you that you are a bigger person, that you have already apologized. you're apologizing again. >> after hart initially stepped down, he did apologize to the lgbtq community for his past remarks. but his appearance ellen perhaps speaker in greater volumes. >> you have grown. you have apologized. you are apologizing again right now. you have done it. don't let those people win. host the oscars. >> another update. ellen tweeting overnight saying look at this, i believe in forgiveness. i believe in second chances. and i believe in kevin hart. >> wow. >> this is something he has wanted to do. i remember him interviewing him, gosh, seven, eight years ago and i said what is one of the one things you want to do and this is what he named. it is something he has always held in his heart. >> so have someone like ellen have his back and make such a point of supporting him, you know, it would be interesting to
