DONALD TRUMP (R), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: He has a news conference all the time when he is eating. I have never seen a human being eat in such a disgusting fashion.

I am always telling my young son, Baron, and I'm always with my kids, all of them. I'd say children, small, little bites. This guy takes a pancake and he is shoving it in his mouth. It is disgusting.

Do you want that for your president? I don't think so. Honestly, it is disgusting.


LEVENTHAL: So there's clearly a right way and wrong way to eat pancakes. Maria, how do you eat yours?

BARTIROMO: Well, you know, fork and knife. Watching that we're all cracking up on the set, Rick. You know, he just says that the way it is. We were all just died laughing, but it resonates.

LEE CARTER, REPUBLICAN POLLSTER: He's eating and it's --

DAGEN MCDOWELL, FOX BUSINESS: It is rooted in truth. That's why it's funny. I love Rick by the way. Everybody who has watched that said what are you doing, man, it was the pizza and the fork, but then what else has he been caught eating. There's this noodles, the spaghetti.

BARTIROMO: It was all by design, you know. He wanted to be one of the people and eat. It was all by design.

CARTER: There is no alliance here. Just whatever.

MCDOWELL: I will have one rule with my family. I have been photographed at Christmas breakfast eating when I was 12 and my dad insisting on showing that photo to everybody who came by the hour for the next 10 years. Do not photograph me when I am eating. I don't care if it's video or still photo.

BARTIROMO: But the broader story here, I mean, Scott Brown, Cruz and Kasich getting together, you know, Trump is calling it a collusion. How do you see it?

FORMER SENATOR SCOTT BROWN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: It's not pollution. It's actually a badge of honor. I think he should be flattered. You have two people that can't get the required delegates to get the nomination teaming up.

It is clear what they are doing. They are obviously joining forces. It's a concerted effort. I think it backfires. I think it emboldens not only those Reagan Democrats, but others to say, you know what, if that's what they're going to do, if they don't have the pride to even show up on my state, I am voting for Trump. I think it will backfire.

BARTIROMO: Then again, there is nothing illegal about it, right? You take Indiana, I'll take Oregon.

CARTER: It was an interesting strategy and poorly executed. We are going to frame it as the people has broken, between us we have this many votes and they are saying this, and this is an alliance for the people.

Instead it was like sort of an alliance conservative base. And then it's just played into the whole narrative of this politician in control and doing backroom deals.

BARTIROMO: They are not spending a penny in his home state of New York. There are new reports right now that Donald Trump is shelling out as much $2 million in Pennsylvania advertising to shore up delegates in today's keystone state primary, a first for the Trump campaign for sure.

This has Hillary Clinton releasing an ad of her own. She is trying to use Trump's words against him. Watch this.


BROWN: Is that a pro-Donald Trump at? Because those are the things that actually he said, but a lot of folks don't disagree with what he's saying. That's what we were talking about earlier.

CARTER: I think this is an ad that will energize his base and it will energize her base. I think this is like the very thing that people that are Hillary supporters say, you know, what I would never want this.

I would never want Donald Trump and so I will go out and support her. The thing that energize Hillary's base is actually anti-Trump, the never Trump sentiment.

I think it's a really interesting thing, though, because what it suggests to me is Hillary is dismissing Ted Cruz and Kasich and saying I'm on to November and I'm saying it's going to me versus them.

BARTIROMO: She's also dismissing the voter in some sense because exactly what you said, this is why he is popular.

BROWN: What I find kind of fascinating is if you look at the total amount of delegates that Trump has right now. He is more than Kasich, Rubio and Cruz combined. To continue on and not unite this party right now is a real problem.

So at what point I've been asking my former colleagues and I'm asking people right now out there listening at what point do we say he's the guy? We are going to actually make sure that it's not Hillary, at what point.

MCDOWELL: In Indiana, Trump has spent about $800,000 on ads so far and there are anti-Trump super PACs that have spent that. So these anti-Trump hacks are still throwing money.

BARTIROMO: Let's take a look at a Donald Trump ad, OK, because this is one from Trump called "my dad."


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: My brother and sister and I have to know what we're talking about before bringing him any kind of proposal. He may be a little less tough on his grandchildren right now, but it is that toughness that I walked renegotiating trade deals with China and Mexico.

It's that toughness that I want keeping me and my family and your family safe. My father would make an incredible president.


BARTIROMO: One of the best things about Donald Trump is his kids, his family. This has got to work, what do you think?

CARTER: I think it's absolutely going to work. I think that one of the biggest things that Trump can do is show the other side of himself to association. His children speaks volumes of who he is.

I've heard so many voters say he's got to have something, right, if this is how kids turned out. Whether it's Ivanka, Eric, Donald Jr., it speaks volumes.

And I think to see that softer side of Donald Trump is something that's really compelling. He's also a tough guy and that's what I want in a leader.

BARTIROMO: We will speak with Eric Trump live. He is coming here on the set today. We will talk with one of his sons. Anyway, got to get your take on this, the other side of the aisle.

Bernie Sanders and (inaudible) actor, Danny Glover, in one of his ads. Watch.


CARTER: I think this ad is really, really interesting because it might not resonate with us, but it does resonate with younger people who are saying I want somebody who's a fighter.

I want to see this backstory who all along he's been a rebel. He's been out there. It sort of shows that he is always been on the outside. He's not necessarily establishment where people are trying to say, look, he's been in the Senate forever.

This is saying look he's been out there protesting. He's been out there on the civil rights movement on the edge. He is going to be fighting for us now.

So I think it's a really compelling ad for people trying to join the movement. Is it going to make a difference at this point? No. But I think it is suggesting I'm in for the long haul.

BROWN: Hillary will have the amount of delegates that she needs and I think this is too little too late. I go back to my original comments. He's been there forever. He's been a senator. Why they had a supermajority, he had the opportunity to do all these wonderful things. They have a supermajority. He could have rammed through all the stuff he's talking about and he did zero.

BARTIROMO: But I like Dagen's question earlier. That was how fungible are these people, the Bernie supporters. Are they going to go to Trump? Because, you know, if you're saying Sanders is going to be out tonight, right, and Hillary Clinton is going to get over the delegates. So does Sanders closedown tonight?

BROWN: He is going to make demands and he's already making them.

BARTIROMO: And where do those supporters go?

MCDOWELL: I think that the young people just stay in their dorm rooms and smoke whatever they smoke. I don't that they'll go out and vote for anybody come November.

CARTER: They are saying that 20 percent to 30 percent might flip over to Trump and the rest of them are probably going to stay home because 50 percent say they would rather vote for nobody. I think there are, but I think there are going to be some who will flip over.

BARTIROMO: Coming up next, the perks of the rich and famous. Soon a few lucky New Yorkers will be able to take a dive into a swimming pool suspended 300 feet into the air. Check this out. We've got the astounding details. This is going to be gorgeous. We've got to take you there live.

Then the Philadelphia primary full swing right now. One silly pretzel factory is giving you a taste of the candidates with a salty twist. Presidential pretzels are here in our studio. It is all coming up. Back in a moment.


BARTIROMO: The big stories Super Tuesday, but there is a lot of market action today as well. Take a look at some of the stocks on the move this morning that we are watching.

Eli Lilly reported first-quarter earnings about a half an hour ago. Profit came in shy of expectations. Revenue did beat estimates. The drugmaker raising its full year guidance though, putting it in line with Wall Street expectations.

Apple shares under pressure this morning. The technology giant reporting fiscal second quarter results after the close tonight. Aside from the top and bottom line numbers, analysts will be watching the iPhone sales. They are expected to decline. The iPhone accounts for two thirds of Apple revenue.

Dupont reporting first-quarter earnings unexpectedly last night after portion of the press release was mistakenly sent out. The chemical giant raised its outlook for 2016. Earnings did beat expectations on Dupont.

An infamous former University of Missouri professor back in the news this morning. Cheryl Casone with that story and the other headlines now. Cheryl, good morning.

CHERYL CASONE, FOX BUSINESS: You remember her, Maria. Melissa Click (ph) suggesting in a newspaper profile published over the weekend that she was fired because of her race. Click telling the "Chronicle of Higher Education," quote, "I am a white lady. I'm an easy target," unquote.

She drew national attention after video footage of her assaulting a student journalist trying to cover campus protest in November went viral.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You need to get out.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You need to get out.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I actually don't.


CASONE: Click was (inaudible) in February. Her appeal of the decision denied back in March.

Look at this, a dramatic scene in Florida. A small plane crashing into a house yesterday in Pompano Beach. All three people on board the plane in critical condition with severe burns. No one inside the house though luckily was injured. The National Transportation Safety Board trying to determine the cause of this crash.

Finally, some of New York's richest people are going to have a very unusual perk in a new building set for completion next year. The 49-storey American Copper Building on First Avenue and 35th street are going to feature a swimming pool suspended between two towers, 300 feet in the air.

That's at the pools going to be. The towers has study views of the Empire State Building in East River trying to swim in that. I don't know. I'd love to swim, Maria, but I think that would freak me out just a little bit looking down on the ground from a pool.

BARTIROMO: Because you are swimming and looking down 300 feet.

BROWN: Yes, if they are listening, I want to go. Give me an invitation. I do want to be the first to do it. I'll be there. Cheryl will be there. We will do it together.

BARTIROMO: It really looks beautiful.

MCDOWELL: How long before somebody skinny dips?

BARTIROMO: Really? I mean, really?

MCDOWELL: Who wouldn't think of that? I framed it in the way that I thought was friendly at 6:50 in the morning.

BARTIROMO: The presidential primary landing on the same day as the National Pretzel Day, go figure. Philly Pretzel Factory hoping a stretch a special twist to the salty snack. We've got the presidential pretzels in studio next. You don't want to miss it. Back in a minute.



BARTIROMO: Welcome back. Not only is today the presidential primary in five states including Pennsylvania, but it is also national pretzel day giving the Philly Pretzel Factory all the more reason to celebrate by creating specialized pretzels in the shape of top presidential candidates, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Ted Cruz.

Philly Pretzel Factory CEO, Dan Dizio, is joining us right now with some pretzels. Dan, good to see you. These look delicious. Tell us about the excitement around a primary and how you came up with this idea and do the faces?

DAN DIZIO, PHILLY PRETZEL FACTORY CEO: It worked up perfect today because it's primary day and it's national pretzel day, which is a real holiday by the way. We give out free pretzels on all of our locations all day long.

We were real excited this morning because every store gives a coupon for the first 100 customers. They each get free pretzels for the whole month of May.

If you one of the visitors of each store, you get a coupon and come every day in May and get free pretzels.

BARTIROMO: Awesome. Dagen, are you a pretzel girl?

MCDOWELL: Big time.


MCDOWELL: But do you sell these in the stores? Ted Cruz looks like Richard Nixon.

DIZIO: Yes, a little bit. We do sell some of these in stores. People order them with all different custom pretzels. These were done at our (inaudible) store and our Toms River stores particularly. They worked on these ones late yesterday.

BARTIROMO: So this is supposed to be Bernie?

DIZIO: Yes, so some of them are little tougher. Obviously Donald really stands out. It's exciting for us. Again, we'll give out a couple hundred thousand pretzels today throughout our stores so we are really excited.

BARTIROMO: Is their candidate that you think is better for small business like your own small business over another candidate?

DIZIO: Well, listen, there is a lot of concerns. Basically, we would love to say that Donald seems to be the business guy. He has the acumen to really help small businesses and it's important right now with everything going on. But right now we are still open-mined to hearing everything in the campaign, you know, the politicians have to say right now. We will see.

MCDOWELL: What is your biggest headwind in terms of the government running a business?

DIZIO: I think obviously, the minimum wage is definitely a concern. I mean, we respect where it's coming from. We understand that we want fair wages for everybody, but obviously it comes at a cost and we are small business --

BARTIROMO: And the regulatory environment everybody talks about. Are there barriers for you because of the regulations and have they've gotten worse?

DIZIO: Yes, there is. There is no doubt even getting money has been difficult rather than a few years back. We have people putting up their life savings to buy into this franchise company and it's important to make sure they are successful. That's what cared outmost.

BARTIROMO: All right, best-selling candidate pretzel, which one is it?

DIZIO: So far, the Donald takes the cake right now.

MCDOWELL: There's something very delicious about his hair.

BARTIROMO: I love it. That is great. Dan Dizio, good to see you. Thanks so much. Philadelphia pretzel. Go get one free today on National Pretzel Day. We'll be right back.


BARTIROMO: Welcome back. Good Tuesday morning, everybody. I'm Maria Bartiromo. It is Super Tuesday part 3. Voters headed to the polls in five states this morning. Your top stories right now at 7:00 a.m. on the east coast.

The battle for the east is underway. Polls are open in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware right now.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton holding strong leads and hoping for a sweep of today's contest. Candidates going on the offensive fighting for every last delegate up for grabs.
