courthouse for us. good morning to you. >> good morning to you. this was the worst act of domestic terrorism since 9/11, and the long-awaited trial of dzhokhar tsarnaev is under way at the federal court house behind us here. just two miles from where the boston bombing took place nearly two years ago. survivors say they have been told to prepare for very graphic evidence, including photos and video. prosecutors plan to play a surveillance video they say shows dzhokhar tsarnaev placing a back pack bomb in the crowd of the spectators and walking away, then the explosion and devastating aftermath. he was found four days later hiding in a boat stored in a yard his brother also accused in the bombing died earlier. in the both the fbi says he scrawled criticism of the american military including the u.s. is killing our innocent civilians and i can't stand to see such evil go unpunished. what if anything did tamerlan's
wife know now remarried with a baby, she never has been charged in connection with the bombing and-er lawyers say she has cooperated. russell's largely steered clear of the spotlight, she might be called as a witness. defense lawyers cesar nef who was 19 at the time was dominated by his older brother, a father figure he was afraid of. >> it will be the defense's task to humanize this young man, to show the jury that he really is not a predator, he's not an evil >> reporter: a bombing victim has no feeling on her lower right side. she says she will be in court for some of the trial. >> i feel like i need to be there. and i know it's going to be diff and i know there are going to be a lot of things that are going to be painful. >> reporter: again, the opening arguments are now under way and if convicted dzhokhar tsarnaev could face the death penalty.
the judge says this trial is expected to last until june. >> peter alexander, thank you. >> turning to other news the investigation into hillary clinton's use of an e-mail account as secretary of state is widening. kristen welker with the latest on this. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. clinton's political problems are growing this morning, a congressional committee says it wants to further explore clinton's use of her personal e-mails while she was secretary of state. clinton isn't speaking about the scandal instead last night at a woman's event in washington, she tried to turn the page. despite the controversy swirling around her, hillary clinton rallied her base getting the most applause when she hinted at future plans. >> and i suppose it's only fair to say don't you some day want to see a woman president of the united states of america? >> that message echoed in the program with a democratic
communications firm running this ad, misspelling her name and showing a picture on her blackberry amid a growing e-mail scandal. clinton made no mention of the revelations that she used her personal e-mail account as secretary of state instead of a now required government e-mail account. republicans seized on the news. >> you do not need a law degree to have an understanding of how troubling this is. >> reporter: aides say she followed the law e-mailing other employees on their official accounts with every expectation they would be retained and the state department says requirements to use government accounts came after clinton left office, noting that former secretary of state colin powell used his personal account and condoleezza rice rarely used in 2011 clinton talked with savann >> you mentioned technology. i have to wonder do you -- how many have your personal e-mail address? you use your blackberry a lot. you like technology? >> i do. >> good at it?
>> i'm okay for you know, for someone of my generation i'm okay. no, i -- i have a lot of security restrapts on what i can and can't do. but i do try to stay in touch as much as possible and electronically is the easiest way to do that. >> are you a blackberry addict? >> i'm an aficionado. not sure about the addict part. >> reporter: last year clinton aides submitted over 50,000 pages of e-mails after the state department asked former secretaries for their official documents, last month the state department turned over about 300 of those e-mails to lawmakers investigating the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. then on monday revelations those e-mails were from her personal accoun >> it feeds into the narrative that she has something to hide or that she has a default that she will be secretive and not transparent. >> reporter: now the associated press is reporting that hillary clinton used a private internet service registered to her family
home in new york, experts call that unusual move that may have given clinton tighter control over access to her archives. so far no reaction from clinton officials about the latest al when asked about the flap, white house officials said they took clinton at her word but that ultimately it's up to the state department and clinton to assess the situation. >> kristin, thanks very much. >> the weather now in round two of what millions hope will be a last brush with this record winter on its way. this is threatening to spread snow and ice from northern texas to new england. and it could push boston over the top setting the record for the city's snowiest winter ever. dylan dreyer is at her post in boston again. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you know, we haven't had a major snowstorm here in boston since valentine's day but take a look at this mountain behind me. this is a 40-foot high pile of dirty snow. this is the city's snow dumping ground. obviously no one here wants more
snow but after the 1.6 inches of snow that fell last night we are now just two inches shy of breaking the all-time record for snowiest winter ever. the snow we saw last night was part of a bigger system that made a mess of parts of the midwest. in minnesota, blowing snow reduced visibility on the roads, parts of i-94 had to be shut down in both directions because of several crashes. farther south, roads were dangerous as well in omaha, nebraska, one man was killed and the icy roads were to blame for that crash. unfortunately, we are not out of the woods yet. we have more winter weather today and tomorrow, and we're going to be so close to breaking that record here in boston but it looks like you're going to see more in new york. >> in fact, looks like the cutoff is just south of you, so to come this far and not break the record. just for the t-shirt alone. it's all about the t-shirt. >> fireworks. something. >> i know. let's see what we've got going on.
again, this is a wide reaching system. 1600 miles stretching from texas all the way into just south of dylan, unfortunately, look at this. we've got winter storm warn, winter storm watches and winter weather advisories from colorado all the way into new england. winter storm warnings a big problem, dallas, rain, thunderstorms, changing to snow and sleet about 1 to 3 inches. in the afternoon memphis, winter storm warnings, 2 to 4 inches, ice up to a quarter inch. big problem overnight tonight into tomorrow morning, lexington, kentucky, 6 to 10 inches of snow once it changes to rain. d.c., philadelphia, four to eight inches of snow after changing rain to ice tonight. new york city will see from about 2 to 5 inches of snow by this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon this time. and then, we look for the snowfall amounts unfortunately, or fortunately depending how you feel about boston, we're talking
about less than an inch of snow, if anything it stays to the south. generally, though, about 3 to 6 inches through the ohio river valley, about some areas picking up up to a foot. but then, after some very cold air on friday, next week fabulous. >> really. >> good news. >> good job, al. >> thank you. turning to other stories more than six months after that deadly shooting of michael brown that sparked angry protests coast to coast, the justice department is going public with its probe into the ferguson, missouri police force. and the findings could cause even more anger. here is ron allen. >> reporter: investigation following the violence that rocked ferguson uncovered a long standing pattern of racial bias. when police used force, 88% of the time the suspect was african-american, as were 93% of those arrested, over a roughly two-year period before michael brown's fatal encounter with darren wilson.
the probe officials say also found this. a 2008 e-mail by a ferguson law enforcement official saying president obama would not serve an entire term. what black man holds a steady job for four years it asked. the report also expected to say local police repeatedly stopped and fined black drivers for minor violations. like busted taillights, to raise money for the city. >> targeting people who are typically not listened to. >> this investigation we understand says nothing about the death of michael brown, or whether former police officer darren wilson will face federal civil rights charges, that investigation continues. but a federal officials have said it's unlikely wilson will be charged with a crime. ferguson's leaders confronted with thousands of pages of allegations say they will only respond when all of this becomes public likely later today. ron allen, nbc news, ferguson. >> look for that. to the news, overnight arrest in a series of shootings.
>> right, the fbi says a suspect wanted in a string of shootings in the washington, d.c. area including one near nsa headquarters is now in custody. richard jordan from our station in washington has the latest. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. today the fbi will be working to piece together exactly what happened to determine if the one person was behind all five of those shootings, that suspect in custody now. the most recent shooting at the nsa building. no one was hurt but there was some damage to the building. and just hours before that on an open highway about ten miles away, two men came under fire, someone shooting at them from a wooded area. they were in a landscaping truck. both of them were hurt, one grazed by a bullet, the other had cuts from broken glass. all of the shootings happening in popular areas outside a movie theater, outside a walmart store, and the first shooting just across the street from a very populated shopping mall.
it was from that parking lot across the street from the mall that the fbi was able to obtain surveillance video showing the suspect vehicle. all of this bringing back memories to 2002, the dc sniper case, shooting people at random, ten people were killed there. now the fbi in the middle of a similar investigation working to find out what the motive behind these new shootings is, and if they perhaps are random as they appear to be. natalie. >> richard jordan from our washington, d.c. station, thank you. u.s. supreme court takes up a legal challenge that could doom the affordable care act better known as obamacare. pete williams is live with that. good morning. >> reporter: natalie, good morning. sometimes supreme court cases are about abstract ideas but this is very practical. it will determine whether millions of people will lose their health insurance. for 7 million low income
americans obamacare and the subsidy is a life saver cutting the cost of health insurance an average of 72%. the question for the supreme court who is entitled to that subsidy. observecare opponents say the subsidies are only for insurance bought on an exchange run by a state and not on the federal exchange healthcare.gov in states that don't set up their ochblt it's a critical issue. only 16 states have their own exchanges up and running. everywhere else there is only the federal exchange. jennifer of memphis battling cystic fibrosis remembers a phone call that told her she was chosen for a transplant. >> they said we have a pair of lungs for you. and i started crying. >> now she says without obamacare and the subsidy she could not afford her anti-rejection drugs. >> i would end up like i was before, and i would die. >> reporter: the insurance industry warns that if the challengers succeed obamacare
would enter a death spiral, rise costs for a smaller number causing the system to collapse. >> pete williams outside the supreme court for us, thank you. frightening moments overnight when a plane with 238 people on board slid off the runway in nepal, the turkish airlines plane was trying to land in dance fog. after it touched down it skidded and ended with the nose on the ground. passengers had to use the emergency slides to evacuate. one person was taken to the hospital but everyone else for the most part was okay. and a sidewalk showdown, argument over snow shoveling turned ugly in ohio. take a look, you can see the man on the left, larry meyers, blowing snow directly onto the man on the right, turns out will was shoveling the snow so school kids could walk on the sidewalk. meyers, however, took exception and told him to leave his sidewalk alone. he says there was an argument. meyers then grabbed him by the throat, that's not all, meyers
came back out with a shovel and he started to dump the snow exactly where it was cleared off. police are now investigating. wow. >> this is the new thing. you end up with a feel good story. that's a feel bad story. >> i don't think -- this started long before. >> something simering. >> majorly. >> this is why winter has to end. >> the madness must stop. it will. let's show you what else is going on across the country. you can see we've got beautiful weather along the west coast, 55 in seattle and sunny, 70 in los angeles, that's where -- nice weather through florida with sunshine and in the low 80s. let's get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. wrong choice? it's like, if i buy a t-shirt and then change my mind i can return it. but a car? you don't reeeaaa eeeeeaaaaaly know until you've driven it a few days. i just want to be

nbc's jim miklaszewski is at the pentagon with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this is a stunning almost unbelievable fall from grace. david petraeus, even a possible presidential candidate, pleading guilty now to a criminal federal charge that grew out of a sorted extramarital affair. once considered a national hero, david petraeus now faces federal charges. the former general who led u.s. forces in iraq and afghanistan and rose to director of the cia, prepared to plead guilty to a charge of unlawful mishandling of u.s. top secrets. but federal court documents don't stop there. they claim that petraeus while head of the cia shared some of those documents with paula broadwell who admittedly was having an affair with petraeus while writing his biography. documents sayy he slipped her eight black books with top
secret information like the afghan war plan and identities of covert operators. the scandal first hit the national headlines more than two years ago, when a tampa socialite called the fbi, kelly complained she was receiving threatening e-mails telling her to stay away from general petraeus. the fbi soon traced the e-mails to broadwell, discovered the illicit affair and mishandling of military secrets. the explosive revelations forced petraeus to resign as director. but petraeus still has his supporters and a large part of his legacy intact. >> his judgment in terms of national security threats we faced and how to deal with the vicious enemy and being successful on the battlefield hasn't been tarnished. >> reporter: president obama approved a plea deal. >> the president believes it was appropriate for general petraeus to take responsibility for his actions. >> his future now in the hands of the federal courts.
it looks like petraeus will avoid jail time. the charge is a misdemeanor, prosecutors are recommending two years probation and a $40,000 fine. but it will clearly take petraeus some time to rebuild his reputation. >> jim, thanks. >> look who is here. carson is about to take us to the orange room talking about online ads most seem to dislike. >> we are watching a video on line, you stick around through the ad or wait. >> skip. >> what i figured. geico has a new campaign. specifically, those who are anxious like these guys to click right past the ads. take a look. >> don't thank me, thank the savings. >> you can't skip this geico ad because it's already over. geico, 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. >> for the ad to come up, waiting for the skip button. it's not over. everything in the middle is

good morning to you. >> good morning. the couple has learned their file with child services will be kept open for five years raising questions what could happen if their children are reported again for walking alone. the family says it has no plans to change course. for 10-year-old and his sister age 6 there is nothing unusual walking home without mom and dad. >> they think it's funny that sending kids to the park can be an issue. >> yet it's become an issue leading to aciations of neglect. who regularly allow their kids to walk to the library and to the park about a mile away on their own. the family defended the decision in january on "today." just after the accusations were made public and their story went viral. >> we're just doing what our parents did, what was considered perfectly normal just one generation ago. >> reporter: they hope the case
would be dropped but after a two-month investigation they were found responsible for unsubstantiated child neglect. >> unsubstantiated seems to be the middle ground. they are not making a legal finding there was child neglect and not dismissing the case. >> social media lit up with its own reaction, much supporting them. i don't have or want kids but even i think this is horrifying. and inviting debate about so called free range parenting. think of it as the opposite of helicopter parenting. >> this idea of hovering and being overly involved in your kids live is becoming the norm. and so what we're doing is we're saying that if you don't have the resources, to have this level of intensive parenting you're a bad parent and that's not true. >> whether anything should be the norm legally is almost as murky as the state's decision with the parenting. >> we all realize there are dangers for children out walking alone. but the question is, who gets to
decide, parents or the government? >> the file with child services will remain open for five years but they have no plans to change the way they are raising their children. >> my husband and i are very firm believers in this independence and allowing our kids simple freedoms and we're going to keep doing it. >> we did reach out to the state of maryland. they told us they cannot comment on a specific case. the family has hired an attorney and tells us they have planned to appeal. >> interesting. so unsubstantiated neglect is kind of limbo. >> that's what the family says. she said look, unsubstantiated neglect explained as there wasn't enough to say there was neglect but there also wasn't enough to say there was. how can you have it both ways. that's their take as well. >> thank you very much. mr. roker talking about a big temperature change. >> right. it's all about the front. it's also all about the base. we're looking at this frontal system. ahead of the front today, it's

actually to get a sniff of the people we just met. that's what the science says. it's not clear what we learn. scientists say we also tend to touch our own faces more after we have shake someone's hand perhaps to smell them. >> oh. >> you put the purell on. >> we just shaked hands outside. >> are you smelling your hands. >> i think you shake someone's hand to bring them close. >> then you get a whiff. >> i think it's eye contact. you shake their hand and look them in the eye. >> i do it for respect. >> i do it to check for weather. >> all right. remember the image we showed you yesterday. a hungry weasel trying to attack a woodpecker midair. you might imagine the internet completely ignored this. no. they couldn't resist having fun with the shot. there's a shirtless vladmir

writing the president of power supplies. a company placing woman in flexible positions. she writes i secretly rolled my eyes at a mother who couldn't make it to last-minute drinks and didn't disagree when another female editor said she should fire another woman before she got pregnant. i scheduled last minute meetings at 4:30 p.m. all the time. it didn't dawn on me that kids might need to pick up their kids at daycare. she said she's not the only one guilty. for mothers in the workplace, it's death by a thousand cuts and sometimes it's other women holding the knives. but she said everything changed two years ago when she gave birth to her daughter charlotte. i wish i had known five years ago as a young childless manager that mothers are the people you need on your team. if you want something done then ask a busy person to do it. that's exactly why i like working with mothers now.
she said she hopes her story is a cautionary tale for younger women in the work force who count hours locked in the office and not actual work. it's time to break that cycle. and she asked, it starts with just recognizing that we're all in different positions at different times in our lives. so embrace your future and support it at work. an catherine is whereith us now. good morning. are you surprised at the reaction it's got. or was it the one you probably thought was coming? >> the reaction has been amazing. we're getting so many signups the power to fly. the positive reaction has been amazing. i thought in a way there would be more negativity. but so many women, you know, tens of thousands now that wanted this kind of message shared. >> we read a lot of essay on screen there. it's blunt and honest. it was something specific to you you were harboring the feelings
against working moms ss you think it is wide spread in the work force? >> i wanted to write it because i've had a lot of experiences as a working mother and now i've cofounded a company that places women in jobs they can do remotely, when i've talked to other women who are in my position, five six, seven years ago i could sense they were -- they're a lot like i used to be. i wanted to send a clear message that, you know, we place a lot of women in tech positions where the number of women are actually going down and so, you know i wanted to make it clear that, you know it's time to break the cycle. >> it's interesting you mention your company a few times. there are several paragraphs in this essay devoted to that company. i will say a lot of people's reaction to this is an apology but it's really an advertisement for the company. this is a pretty shrewd way to get a lot of attention a big headline but it's about advertising your start-up. it's not a genuine apology, i guess, is what people are saying. >> no.
the start up was cofounded because my partner and i wanted to solve a problem. it was a very personal problem we felt like, you know there isn't a third way for women out there. and i wanted to talk about, you know, why we've came to the idea. why the company was founded. the best companies sort of a reflection of the voids that people are trying to fill in their lives. of course, i wanted to advertise the company. that's what it got me to the conclusions. >> it was a genuine change of heart. >> yeah. i'm devoting my entire life to essentially giving women a third way of working response, i mean i spend every waking hour doing it now. >> tell me about the process. when you were home and you just had your little girl. what was it like to go through that and realize i'm a working mom. now i'm understanding those challenges from a different perspective. >> i think, you know, i just felt like i sort of had been wiped off the face of the earth, for lack of a way of saying it. i just felt like i had two bad choices.
either to go back to work all the time and not see my little girl or start slowly pulling out of the work force which i had seen many women i had worked with do. so, you know, the choices were stark, and we wanted to start, essentially, as i said a third way with power to fly. >> so you apologized now to the working moms you feel like you didn't give enough credit to when you were a young manager map. what askis your message now to other women who don't have kids who are may be making the same judgments? value the mothers around you based on the work they do. not the hours they can spend in the office. women are not going to be able to essentially, you know, compete that way. but they will based on the value of their work. >> all right. you have a lot of people talking. thank you so much. glad to have you here. >> thank you. appreciate it. thank you very much. from working moms to what it moons to be a man. the new documentary the mask you live in focuses on the
traditional definition of masculineity and the impact on society. take a look. >> don't cry. >> pick yourself up. >> don't be a fool. >> be cool and be -- be a man. >> it's very powerful. jennifer is the film's writer producer, and director stephen maison and luis who arefeatured are joining us. and maria shriver is the executive producer. it starts a conversation in communities where they screen it. you the president. it's a national conversation on the stereo types that we drive into our young boys. what is the impact of them? >> so essentially we're limiting our voice. the film explores america's definition of masculinity and how we're failing our boys men,
and society at large. compared to girls boys are more likely to commit suicide, be described meds, commit a violent crime. our boys are suffering, society is suffering. we have to do something. >> when you say society is suffering. what is the overall impact? it has to have an impact on the relationship the boys have with women. >> i'm an executive producer on "the hunting ground" which is exposes the sexual assault on college campuses. we're in crisis. >> we spent a lot of time trying to empower young ladies and it's time to focus attention on young men. stephen, you grew up and you correct me if i'm wrong. tough dad? >> yes. >> your dad said look you be strong. you man up. you don't show your emotions. what impact did it have you? >> there was know motion in my house from my father's perspective. there was no crying. there was no being sad. the only emotion was the emotion of toughness and being strong.
>> everything else was weak. >> everything else was weak. >> now you have a son who just turned 12. for 11 years you raised him as a single dad. you turned that 180 degrees, didn't you? >> absolutely. mostly because of him. one day he told me he was sensitive and i didn't know what to do. i was like okay well let's figure this out together. and from that -- from the things i learned from him is what helped me become better. >> you have become more sensitive because you allowed your son to show his sensitivity. >> absolutely. >> made you a better man? >> 100%. >> you grew up without a dad? >> i did in my teen years. >> you patterned yourself after the boys in the neighborhood. >> yes. >> what did they teach you? >> growing up i was around a lot of bad influences and there was drugs, join the gangs, called me names, tried to jump me. but that's not the life i wanted to live. i didn't want to go down that path because it's horrifying.
i was afraid honestly. >> you found a support group. >> i did. >> at which by itself takes a lot of emotional awareness. what did you learn there? >> well, back in my school we had a program called legacy. they take in kids of all ages don't matter boy or girl and they turn them to a complete different person. they give you the support you want and the help you need. >> jennifer i think some people might be saying wait a second. it's too simplistic. you tell boys to express their emotions and the world will be better. >> it's more complicated. it's about reconnecting our boys and men to their whole selves to their human selves. we can prevent so many societal problems. we can provide -- you know, solutions to depression, anxiety, isolation, suicide. and the film really is a call for help showing the world there's a better way. >> and basically what you're saying is we're cheating our boys. >> we are. we are limiting our boys. >> from fulfilling life.
>> we're limiting our boys like we have been limiting our girls and women. it's time we stand up and take notice and champion and challenge for a better way. a better future. >> fascinating stuff. i encourage people to try to arrange a screening in their communities. thank you very much. >> thank you. if you want to see it head to our website today.com. matt thank you. i'm here with jill. we have a special spring edition of steals and deals. jill is wearing two of the deals. i spotted one of them. the earrings. >> yeah. >> what else? i keep staring at you! >> the t-shirt? we'll be back.

tamron, let's get to the lead story. what happened to your phone? >> is this the? i didn't want to talk about it. i didn't want to be ridiculed. i was taking a bath and i had the phone on the ledge and i forgot it was on vibrate and the phone fell in the tub. i saw it go under and i dropped it again. it was wet. i lept out of the tub and ran to the kitchen and thank goodness i live alone. small children would be traumatized. i threw it in rice and it worked for about two hours. >> it was soaking wet. >> if that's your fantasy. that's why i didn't want to talk
about it. >> did the rice work? >> i made calls and i put it rice for safe measure overnight. then it went dead. >> it's gone. it's dead? >> i have a personal and a work. people tweet and said the galaxy phone is water proof. did you know that? >> the commercial, the latest one, you can dip it into a glass of water. >> we should test that out. >> it didn't work in your case. >> i don't have a galaxy. >> i have another phone that is very popular with a fruit. i don't want to bad mouth. with a clementine. they might come after you. >> people come after you. >> we are hoping for the day that they make the water proof phones. >> the technology is out there, why not do it.
that and the crack-free screens. these things you drop them and they immediately crack. >> i love when you see the kids out on the plaza and they have the cracked phone and the parent refused to replace it. >> keep it in a case. >> this winter, if you are in the eastern half of the country, everyone had it with winter. nerves are frayed. i think there is a great example. cleveland, ohio. a woman needed help clearing her sidewalk. everything is going well until his shovel got too close to another neighbor's driveway. he is snow blowing. you can see he is blowing snow back at the guy who got too close to his driveway. >> good sa maremaritan on the right. >> folks get nuts.
police are now investigating and they put on their website there, let's keep things calm. do you think that if people retaliated against you from shoveling if you would go after them? they came to blows. one grabbed the other around the throat. >> the snow he had shovelled he put back on. that's horrible. >> sounds like a cranky old man. >> i think there is something going on beforehand. >> bad blood there. >> there is a local affiliate who did a report about it. the guy demonstrates for the reporter what he did he grabs him and shakes him. they got visit over this. i think you are right. >> i also think people now are just about at the end of their rope as far as cabin fever. >> we are all in it together
other than california. we saw the hailstorm and you see people when you are running and going it's cold. whatever happened to shoveling snow and helping your neighbor? there a couple of sides to your story. you saw this on facebook. a 34-year-old executive new mother has written an online column saying sorry to all the mothers that she worked with in the past. she writes i secret low rolled my eyes at a mother who couldn't make it to last minute drinks and didn't disagree with another said we should hurry up and fire her before she got pregnant. she went on to write i scheduled last minute meetings at 4:30 all of the time and it didn't dawn on me that parents might need to pick up their kids at daycare.
they argued that it needs change. he understands now as a mother. some people questioning whether this is a thin low vailed apology to market her company, power to fly that allows women to work from home and signed up millions of subscribers. did you need to become a mom to encourage empathy. if it encourages other women succeed whether moms or not moms that's a positive message. >> i can't look into her heart and see why you did it, but when you are in your 20s, you think i'm driving and this is part of my career. she was gone for four months. why does she get to loaf? >> i don't agree with that. i obviously am the only person here without kids but i listen to your stories and hear al say
i have to go to this school effect and natalie talks about the kids. my mom worked her butt off. she was a single mom and i saw her hustling and my aunts and other women around me. when i saw the stories, thank goodness she is apologizing and takes them out to dinner, but i was worried it would fall into the callus woman who doesn't have kids. you guys are two of the most sensitive men i know, but you are not a unicorn. men work with us all the time who understand natalie's situation. >> in the dynamic of the workplace some women who see the mother sometimes getting to leave work early to pick up their kids and sometimes there is resentment. i have seen that firsthand. >> i can say single people, send her. you don't have kids. >> if we understand the shoes we
wear what a sad thing. we should have empathy no matter what. >> if it encourages people to say hey, maybe i should think about -- i don't know where i will be ten years from now. i may be that mom with two children. it's a positive thing for having that discussion. dads too. a lot of people pointed out that this doesn't make mention of the dads. you guys are doing the same job we are doing. >> i also think we should try wearing each other's shoes. >> i will not take my shoe off. kathie lee give me this thing called baby foot. >> i ordered it. it's the best thing ever. >> your feet moult like a snake. it's amazeingamazing. >> i won't let you take a shot. my feet are so scaly, i went to try on shoes i thought they were going to throw me out of the store. it's unbelievable.
kathie lee said skip came off the size of this phone. >> it's called baby feet. >> you keep it on too long are you just bones? >> you keep it on for one hour and for ten days you moult. >> let's bathe in it. you walk away. >> wow. >> you are like a steak. you leave your shell right there. >> go back in time and become a baby again. >> like benjamin button. >> would you use it? this is what happened when a herd of buffalo comes towards a group of tourists at yellowstone national park. one of the most beautiful places on the planet. >> definitely going to stop.
>> oh! >> damage to the car about $3000. that moment is priceless. the driver said there was noplace to get off the road. the question islisten i would try to get out of there, but the driver was frozen in place. what would you do? >> you don't expect it and they keep coming. you pull up short and it makes good video. >> maybe start backing up slowly. >> wow! willie thinks the buffalo will hit the breaks. >> strong animal. >> he said it. i'm coming to you. >> today's take. what would you do if that was your car and you are inside? >> get out of there. just get out. >> here's this long front stretching in texas all the way into new england that will bring
