fugitive daft sweat is now talking to authorities, talking a lot about his prison escape with richard matt and the getaway plan in the end failed. miguel, good morning. >> matt, good morning. as david sweat's condition improve improves, it's gone from critical to serious. the governor said he is answering lingering questions after more tha three weeks on the run. >> shot twice then rushed to the hospital by those who had been hunting him down, cop killer david sweat says after his prison break with richard matt, the dangerous duo planned to go to mexico. that, according to the governor, who says the convicts wanted to kill lyle mitchell, his wife joyce mitchell was to be their alleged getaway driver. >> the plan was to head to mexico on the theory that mitchell was in love with one or both of them and then they would go live happily ever after. >> after mitchell never showed, matt and sweat started moving towards the canadian border.
7:05 am
on the run 23 days, the pair had broken into at least three cabins including this one roughly 30 miles from the prison. last friday, matt had been hiding out in this trailer before he was gunned down. two days later, sweat was shot just three miles from the border. the govern said he said he had bag with maps, tools, bug repellent and pop-tarts. cuomo said the pair split last week. >> sweat felt matt was slowing him down. >> with joyce mitchell accused of smuggling tools into the prison, corrections officer gene palmer was back in court monday after pleading not guilty to charges including promoting prison contraband and tampering with evidence. the d.a. said sweat has only implicated joyce mitchell. >> he told investigators it was just mitchell, he, and matt. >> lyle mitchell told matt lauer last week he still loves his wife. >> he still wants her to, well, he wants her to come home at
7:06 am
some point in time. >> david sweat is expected to spend several more days here at the hospital. during that time, investigators say they'll have more questions and for now, he is talking. matt, savannah. >> miguel, thank you so much. lisa bloom is today's legal analyst. david sweat is spilling the beans. this isn't one of those situations where you talk to investigators and hope to get a reduced sentence. he's going to jail forever. how can he help himself by talking to authorities and cooperating? >> you're right, he's already serving a life sentence. even with the additional charges, he's still serving a life sentence. it's all about the privileges. gone are the television, the hot plate, those privileges. if he wants to get any of those back, if he wants to get out of administrative segregation, solitary confinement, he has a little bit to work with. >> how long can they keep a prisoner in solitary confinement? >> prosecutors say they want to keep him there up to five years. most other countries would
7:07 am
consider that torture, but we keep them in for long periods of time here. >> if you're an investigator, what kind of information are you hoping to get out of him? >> what other prison authorities, if any, are implicated in the plot. was it really just joyce mitchell and one other person who says he was unaware that he was helping? or were there more? i think that's the most important question. >> you mentioned privileges, the honor block. seemed like he had a sweet deal inside that prison before this all happened. i mean, is there a chance he could see the inside of that kind of thing again, an honor block? you're a prior escapee. could that happen. >> >> it seems very unlikely. maybe a decade, two decades from now, because prison authorities have to have something to work with. they have to insentvise people. to people who say this was a country club, what else can they use to get people to behave behind bars. >> matt, over to you. >> now to the financial crisis in greece and its impact on your bottom line. the images out of athens are
7:08 am
somewhat reminiscent of the great depression in this country. long lines at banks. strict limits on withdrawals now in place. the country heading toward a default on a massive debt payment due today with a key national vote set for this weekend on a bailout plan. on monday, it added up to the worst day of the year for u.s. stocks. jim cramer is host of mad money. good morning to you. >> good to see you. >> the greeks are deeply in debt. they owe a ton of many, $1.5 billion plan due today. if they can't make the payment, what's the immediate impact? >> we saw the european market down, ours down 2%. people don't know what's going to happen. anytime unknowns are going to drive the markets lower. >> can you explain why the dow drops 350 points because of the problems in greece? seems like a world away. what is the connection? >> 27 out of 30 stocks in the dow jones average have business in europe. europe will slow down because of this. >> you expect it to go down further?
7:09 am
because there's a huge vote coming up in greece, whether they accept the bailout conditions of the three central banks or whether they say, hey, we're out of the eurozone. we're going on our own. >> good riddance if they do that because if they can't pay the money, they don't belong in the union. what i care about is that the market go down a little bit, so we can buy. everybody says pull back. when you get the pull back, you don't say i'm scared. >> you make a real point of this. you say when you see a drop like the one we saw yesterday, you would view it as an opportunity for the average investor. >> if it were here, if the problem were pennsylvania, new jersey, new mexico, texas, we would be saying, whoa, but it's greece. >> so you tee me up beautifully. let's come cloisser to home. governor of puerto rico said on sunday that that island could not afford to pay some $72 billion in debt. how's that going to pay out? >> that's a problem because a ow lot of your mutual funds if
7:10 am
you're in municipal bonds are getting hit. i think puerto rico is going to have to cut its debt dramatically. you're in a world of hurt for years. >> as the stock market here taken that into consideration or is that still to come? >> not enough. that's why i'm hoping for 1.5 to 2% pullback, and then you put your 401(k) back. i'm in cash. that doesn't do anything. >> thanks very much. and you can catch him on cnbc's "mad money" at 6:00 eastern on cnbc. >> we'll move to politics. new jersey governor chris christie launching his campaign later this morning and he'll enter the race in what would have been unexpected a couple years zs ago. he's an underdog. kelly is there for the big announcement. good morning toyou. >> good morning, savannah. he's one of the most well known republican governors in the country, but now with a much narrower path to victory in the gop nomination. today, the chris christie logo

7:12 am
his formidable personal skills will make it work for chris christie and make him a part of the race or a force in the race, at least to start out. >> kelly o'donnell. he's hoping to get on the debate stage. could change his fortunes. you're headed to livingston, new jersey today. >> i'm going to spend time with governor christie just before he takes the stage, and then after his announcement, i'll sit down with him again for his post announcement interview, his first post announcement interview. you can see that tonight on nbc nightly news with lester holt and we'll have it tomorrow morning. >> we have breaking news on a plane crash. >> a residential plane crash, a military plane that crashed in a residential area in indonesia. part of the wreckage slammed into a hotel in the country's third larblgest city. the transport plane was carrying dozens of people and crashed just two minutes after it took off from an airport base in indonesia air force officer said the pilot had radioed he was

9:43 am
myself, i have alzheimer's but it doesn't have me. >> i was 52 years old when i was diagnosed with early onset alzheimer's. two years prior i had suffered a number of seizures during a weekend ski trip and over the next month i noticed a gradual decline in my ability to remember every-day things. when i was finally diagnosed, i was scared and unsure of what life would look like in the future. i often forget names of longtime friends and have trouble finding things around the house and i had to retire as a physical therapist. i want to tell my stories to let others know suffering from the disease they are not alone. >> those are just a couple of stories from estimated 5.3 million americans who are battling alzheimer's disease. a number expected to reach nearly 14 million by the year

9:45 am
important to remember it's recent memory. so what characteristically people will say is they can remember very vivid details from their childhood but it's that recent memory. that short-term memory they have difficult with. they'll be repeating themselves often asking for help and relying on devices to remember things they normally wouldn't have divvyfficultvvyfficultdifficulty with. >> he got lost going home. >> doing things that you're used to. driving to a place you have gone to many years and you get lost. a classic symptom. >> if we look at things we can do to prevent. talk about loving your brain. what are some of those? >> i think two words to think about are be strategic and give your brain something challenging. we're talking about jigsaw puzzles and doing art.
9:46 am
keeping yourself engaged with other people. doing things to stimulate the brain constantly. there's this idea that people with higher education perhaps have a lower instance of dementia and i think this is important to get out to middle-aged people. go back to school. it doesn't correlate with how far you got when you were in your early 20s. try to be engaging and learning and rewiring your brain. your brain is an active muscle. if you don't use it you can lose it. i should say this. these are all things that can help to to allay the symptoms but we don't have evidence it would slow down or prevent the disease. >> great information. we have more information on our website. head to alzheimer's association is great resource as well. easton corbin performs his we live in a pick and choose world. choose choose choose. but at bedtime? ...why settle for this?

10:06 am
he's having difficulties because it seems last week kaitlin pulled him aside and said he was the one. he believes it. there's nine guys left. he's having some difficulty believing he's the one when she's making out with everybody. >> i wonder why. >> he confronted herb last eded her last night. take a look at the confrontation. >> i'm worried that sean knows what's happened with nick and i don't know what's going to happen but i'm just mentally preparing myself for anything. i feel awful right now. >> when you looked me in the eyes and you say "i think you're the one" it's tough. what's wrong? you all right? you need a hug?
10:07 am
>> part of me is so relieved when i realized that sean's not here to talk about nick that he's here to talk about us and what happened between us in san antonio. but i really made a mess of things. >> yes, dear you did. >> so he doesn't even know she slept with him. and when he does -- >> please talk about one more bit of crying. very important. >> at the end of the show she let go of this guy chris a.k.a. cupcake is what they call him don't ask why. >> i can tell why. >> she ditched him on a hill in ireland. it did not go well. take a look. >> it was a cliff. >> yeah a cliff. >> it's okay.

10:08 am
but she's already getting intimate with other people. like -- >> wait, what just happened on that clip? that was horrifying. >> he might as well just jump. there's obviously no life he can possibly have that would be as meaningful as a relationship with her.

10:09 am
>> she's a mother of two. he said she sacrificed having her third child so she and her family could buy their fully loaded luxury dream home. the article starts with this "we built a luxury dream home but can only afford to have two children. most people don't once this statement." in order to have a third child, she'd have to return to work and they'd have to give up their timeshare but she said her uterus aches for a third child so she's basically saying that financially they would not be able to live -- they could probably afford it, they just couldn't live the life they're currently living. it upset readers. one reader wrote "you and your husband made conscious choice to put material well-being first. but don't act like it was an incredible sacrifice." another wrote "it's a poor little me story that smacks of utter selfishness spare the thought for the women who can't have children." >> i think those are separate issues. i think what -- first of all,
10:10 am
they have choice, the right to make whatever choices they want. and if she's going to write an article like this that does touch sender places in people she's going to get this reaction. but a poor choice of words, sacrifice. they had -- they're blessed is what they are. the one good thing about it hoda that i would say is that a lot of people don't realize before they have children how expensive they are and if you can't afford and you're in a position to choose or not choose to have children i think it's smart to make your priorities in all of that. it does come off like "we have all of this but it's not enough." and not knowing the people -- we don't know the spirit in which she wrote it but i can see why it touched off some people. >> and most people who grew up in homes that weren't very prosperous people talk about a beautiful, wonderful childhood. they didn't have the stuff but they had a great life and if their parents had waited -- you end up making due. >> does that upset you? >> yeah it did. you know why? number one she wrote about it as a big sacrifice in a magazine.
10:11 am
>> wrong word. >> so you go "oh, my gosh this is something she feels strongly about." and i think it does hit that nerve with people when you say "i have a vacation home timeshare, our home and now i can't take vacations" it's like -- >> and a lot of people can barely put bread on the table. we have a couple shoutouts. yesterday we were talking about everyone has a story. i don't know if you know, but every month david freedman and i write a new story based on letters that come to us and then we bring you to new york. so if you have a story that's uplifting or inspiring i want more to cloozhoose from. go to and click the button entitled iehas. >> and college kids,dom the plaza and bring your college idea. you're not in school, you're not
10:12 am
