>> yeah. >> but people forget not only how close he came to dying and after he survived people thought he wouldn't be able to continue as president. >> it's very close. that's the key passage in the book is there was a day when he came to the oval office and his advisers, top advisers were there, and they were watching him to see if he can handle the discussion that they had set up for him, and if he didn't, they were going to inform george bush the elder he would take over as president because there is an amendment in the constitution that allows that if the president sun fit. so reagan came within that close to invoking that amendment. >> and you also write about nancy reagan a lot in this book, and you say that while she was by his side through his battles with health throughout his long life that there was almost a nancy reagan before the assassination and after the assassination. >> it's like three different nancys. the first one is the very, very ambitious actress who -- who gets reagan and maris reagan and
8:42 am
nobody shows up for the wedding except william holden. an amazing scene, right? the second one is the diva nancy reagan who becomes an entitled person after her husband becomes governor in california for two times and then wins the presidency, and the third one is the hero nancy reagan who after everybody despises her, not everybody but a lot of people in the white house, rises to the occasion and almost singlehandedly cares for her husband as he goes down into the dementia situation. so it's a fascinating portrayal of the woman. >> i mentioned john hinckley jr., a guy being treated for mental illness since he took that fateful shot. he's getting more and more freedom each year, more and more visits outside the hospital where he has been kept. do you think he should be set free? >> no. >> ever? >> no. >> he trained himself to be an assassin and went to the firearm ranges, he did everything he could. he wanted to kill jimmy carter. he tried to kill jimmy carter.
8:43 am
couldn't get him. then he went to reagan. this man -- he could say he's insane and i'm sure he's got neuroses all over the place but society is not better off watching john hinckley walk around. >> interesting watching the republican debate being held out at the reagan library in california. how many vand dates evoerked the name of ronald reagan and try to cast themselves in the mold of ronald reagan? does anybody in the current crop remind you of ronald reagan? >> i can't say that they do because i don't know them that well. reagan is the republican icon because his term was so successful. his two terms were so successful, and that's what the republicans have to look back on. they can't look back on bushes. they look back on reagan, so he is very relevant today, and the candidate who captures the reagan persona, which is almost impossible because he's so charismatic will be the candidate that wins. >> bill o'reilly, the book is called "killing reagan." always good to have you here. it is, i mean it. i bookend it with that. >> thanks for having me in,
8:44 am
lauer, appreciate it. >> savannah? >> all right, matt. thank you so much. coming up next, kim goldman 20 years after the o.j. simpson trial. what she is doing now to help other families impacted by violent crimes. we'll talk with kim and catch up with her, but, first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:45 am
8:46 am
rise, it has been more than 20 years since murders of o.j. simpson's ex-wife nicole and her friend ron goldman. it thrust ron's sister kim into the media spotlight. well, now a dedicated victims' rights advocate she profiles victims and survivors of high-profile violent crimes. in her new book "media circus. can the "kim, good to see you. >> good morning, thank you. >> you've been on before and told your story and in this book you're telling other stories, other people in violent crimes
8:47 am
in this media spotlight. why did you want to tell these storeies? >> stories that haven't been told yet. no disrespect to the media, stories that go behind the scenes of where the media and public members may have been a little insensitive and i want to show people what it's like to grieve publicly and how hard that is and how comforting it can be. >> an inside look. you talk to everyone, from sharon tate's sister, remember the manson murders and the wife of the d.c. sniper, one story or anecdote that stood out to you? >> each story was so unique and each chapter advise i'ded for that family, they all resonate with me because they talk about resilience and how you can gain control in a really uncontrollable situation and the power of healing and growth and the process. i love how each member, you know, found their own voice throughout their process, and i -- i just was inspired by every story. >> aren't there common strands when you have a horrible situation like this and for
8:48 am
whatever reason it is of interest to the media. it becomes a national story. of what these families go through, that kind of added trauma potentially to what they are already experiencing. >> you know, i think each -- each member that i interviewed every family had a unique situation to them because, you know, the media was different and social media element added, why sometimes certain stories rose to the top and others didn't. there real wane -- we didn't get to the bottom ofit. it was just really teaching and talking about what their unique experience was. >> tough lessons for the media in this book. >> how to be respectful and responsible and how to share a story that's based in truth and not mistruths and, unfortunately, sometimes families don't want to always talk to the media so that's when stories that aren't fact-checked kind of rise up and then the families say, wait, i want to tell my story and get back involved so that ying and yang is really hard. >> it's interesting because i thought it was -- it's kind of a batch of mixed emotion in this with regard to the media because some families felt traumatized
8:49 am
by all the attention and yet other families were saying i want to tell my story. >> right. >> i want to tell my story in detail. i want the world to know exactly what happened to my loved one. >> right, but knowing how and when and having some control over that i think is probably the most difficult part because you always just want to talk and you want to share and it's not always the right time. >> what did some of the families -- i think about judy shepard, the mother of matthew shepard who was the victim of a gay hate crime or eric garner who was killed in police brutality, what did they say about being at the center of larger social movements? >> i remember with esah how hard it was walking down the street and people chanting i can't breathe and people thought they were being supportive and for her it was the last words her husband ever spoke and every time she heard it it was traumatizing and once she understood the reason behind it and why people were doing it
8:50 am
slowly began to comfort here and judy shepard emerged as a victims' right advocate and wanted to get involved and leave a legacy for her son matthew and that took years for her to do that and how to gain control back. >> so many people know of you, of course, because you lost your brother ron. the o.j. simpson case continues to captivate people. there's even a miniseries coming out. >> i know. >> does something like that bring it all up for you, not that it ever goes away? do you know what i mean? does it in some ways make it more difficult. >> all the families talk about that. even though they are living their life privately, it's very public still for people. people are still inveare vested these stories and in some ways it's great because there's life lessons and lessons to be learned from the justice system. for me it's right here. i'm learning how to use the media and this book and these stories to educate and empower and teach and hopefully that's the good message people get to it. >> the human beings' pain that you're reading about, they are human beings. >> they are someone's pain. >> it's real pain.
8:51 am
>> and for community and public, too, they want to be so spottive and we're real people on other side of it. >> thank you, kim goldman. nice to see you. the book is called "media circus." first jamie lee

i've literally never stepped in the shower, people wanted to do that, and i said, no, it's my mom's and it's her legacy and for this show, this moment, my mom's been gone long enough now. i'm rooted in my own feet. >> right. >> i think we can now do it. >> the timing was right. >> and we recreated the whole shower scene. >> that's amazing. >> in the show "scream queens." >> that's a great homage to your mom. >> which is on tonight, by the way. >> yes, it is. >> we'll be back with kathie lee i'm ... ==anim== new details this morning... ==topvo== on the massive valley wildfire burning in the good morning to you. 8:56. we have new details on the massive wildfire burning in the north bay. cal fire issued a new update a short time ago, now 75% contained, and more than 76,000 acres have burned. it's killed three people, destroyed nearly 2,000 structures including 13 00 homes.
