>> he has demonstrated a potential bias involving enough potential litigants before the court that he would not be able to perform his full responsibilities. and i think there is merit in that criticism and that the senators should really pay attention to it. >> kavanaugh addressing his temperament in the "wall street journal" op-ed writing, i might have been too emotional at times and i said a few things i should not have said. i hope everyone can understand that i was there as a son, husband and dad. across d.c. leading to 302 arrests. among them amy schumer who participated in sit-in on the floor of the senate building. we get more now from nbc's peter alexander >> reporter: those protesting on the supreme court against brett kavanaugh. >> shut it down. shut it down. >> kavanaugh has got to go.

nomination and wanted to see the outcome of the investigation. now, we haven't heard from murkowski, but we have heard from collins and flake after they viewed the results with flake saying he didn't see anything here that corroborated these allegations. and senator collins saying she did think that thevote, but it leaningnomination. does indicate that they may be if that's the case, it could be up to lisa murkowski and joe decide whether or not this nomination goes forward. >> we'll be reading tea leaves all day long, tracie, thank you. >> it is a race against time in indonesia as crews desperately search for survivors one week after the country was hit by an earthquake and tsunami. the death toll continuing to climb overnight. officials now say over 1500 were killed in the disaster. let's go to our london bureau
where nbc's sarah harman is standing by with the latest. sarah, that number is expected to rise even more. >> hi, frances. that's right. it's almost certain to rise unfortunately because in part one week on, we still don't know the fate of many people who were trapped in the remote outlying villages. the focus now is turning from searching for survivors to recovering bodies. it seems increasingly unlikely that anyone is going to be pulled out of this rubble alive. our teams on the ground in palu have been watching increasingly desperate search efforts. yesterday a french rescue team was digging at a collapsed hotel in palu. the team believed they detected a survivor who was trapped in the rubble. their sensors picked up what seemed to be a heartbeat. however, they had to stop digging as night fell and when they returned in the morning, there was no longer any heartbeat they could find. it is believed around 40 people are still missing from that hotel alone. there are signs of progress,
though, however slow. electricity has been restored to palu. some businesses have reopened. and aid is trickling -- excuse me, trickling in. indonesia's vice-president says it's going to take at least two years to rebuild. guys? >> wow, all right. sarah, thank you for the update. >> caught on camera, a ye erupt violent brawl in virginia. it wasn't the players fighting. it was the adults. it is hardly the first time we've seen coaches and parents behaving badly on the field. here's nbc's kristen dahlgren with more. >> reporter: a post-game handshake gone terribly wrong. the coaches' fists flying. an all-out brawl in front of 9 and 10-year-olds. steven sauliers posted this video, grown men fighting at a peewee football game. please make this go viral. >> i want these coaches to see, hey, look, your players are looking at your actions. look what you've done. >> reporter: the coaches apologizing for the poor display of sportsmanship in front of those we were expected to mentor.
>> hey, hey, hey. >> reporter: it is an isolated incident. the problem so pervasive referee brian bar low started this website posting videos of parents behaving badly. >> when people see themselves, they change their own dynamics. >> reporter: the hope that viral videos like this one might get parents to act their age. kristen dahlgren, nbc news. >> first lady melania trump is in kenya this morning, the third stop of her solo trip to africa. mrs. trump spent the earlier part of the day visiting with some baby eph at nairobi national park even taking time to feed one of them. she will visit an orphanage later today and expected to attend a theater performance with first lady margaret ke in, yata. >> videos up load today social media, roads looked like rushing rivers submerging cars along the way. unfortunately this sicilian city
