trump's past that surfaced this morning. we'll talk to mr. trump about that. first nbc national correspondent peter alexander with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: this is donald trump like you have never heard him. the republican party's presumptive nominee used the media to boost his own political campaign caught on tape decades ago pretending to be his own publicist, bragging about celebrity and relationships all to inflate his own image. >> coming out of a -- >> reporter: the voice may sound familiar. >> and he's starting to do tremendously well. >> reporter: the 25-year-old audio recording obtained by "the washington post" capturing a 1991 conversation between a "people" magazine reporter and a man claiming to be donald trump's publicist, calling himself john miller. >> what is your position? >> i'm sort of handling pr. >> reporter: the voice sounds almost inmistakenly by trump
7:03 am
boasting of celebrities like madonna wanted to date trump. >> she wanted to go out with him. the people you write about really are, i mean they call. they just call. actresses, people that you write about just call to see if they can go out with him. >> bragging having three other girlfriends while living with marla. >> and he's got three other girlfriends. >> and explaining why he dumped maplings for france's first lady. in 1991 maples verified to "people" that the voice was trump's. trump at the time admitting it was a joke gone awry. trump called reporters pretending to be someone else while planting stories about himself. the former reporter telling the post the call said something about the control trump wanted to keep of the news cycle flowing with this story. and i can't believe he thought he'd get away with it. the "post" reports that trump did not respond to comments. the report hours after trump's
7:04 am
day in washington, on his meeting with paul ryan. >> we had a great meeting. i think we agreed on a lot of things. it will come along. >> reporter: earlier ryan conciliatory and complimenting. >> donald trump and i had differences. we talked about those. i do believe that we are now planting the seeds to get ourselves unified. >> reporter: still no indication endorsement is coming any time soon. meanwhile, the secret service says it will investigate comments by trump's former butler calling for president obama to be killed. anthony senecal reportedly worked for trump 30 years writing the president should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent in his first term. senecal standing by his comments. >> i think he should be hung next to hillary clinton and i think it should be public, i think it should be televised. >> reporter: he says he never discussed his thoughts with trump.
7:05 am
the trump campaign provided the following statement. senecal does not work at mar-a-lago and hasn't in many years. we totally disavow and condemn these horrible statements. for the tapes "the washington post" is reporting when the "people" magazine reporter played the record for marla she burst into tears, deny that a ring trump gave her implied intent to marry her. years ago donald trump in a court case acknowledged he would occasionally use the pseudonym john baron. "the wall street journal" is reporting that the former president bill clinton's foundation set up a financial commitment that benefitted a for profit power company partly owned by a wealthy divorcee, julie mcmahon. the foundation tells nbc news there was no wrong doing. it tells the journal she and clinton are family friends, a clinton spokesperson says the former president counts many
7:06 am
foundation participants as friends. the clinton campaign for hillary clinton had no comment. back to you. peter, thank you. as we mentioned we'll talk with donald trump about those tapes when he joins us live. lots to talk about. >> certainly. let's bring in mark and steve, guys, don't know where to start. the "washington post" recordings that they released of this conversation. apparently recorded 25 years ago. a man named john miller everyone now suspecting was donald trump. what do we make of this? >> it's a strange thing to do. not the first time it's reported donald trump would occasion do this. it cannot be explained because he could have afforded to hire a publicist but donald trump was pretty hands on about his image. i think in the context of this campaign it's going to raise the question of is donald trump the right kind of person to be president. >> honesty and temperament. >> and seriousness. that's the key thing the clintons are going to try to say this is not a serious person and the job is too important to give to an unserious person.
7:07 am
>> on the clintons, "the wall street journal" has explosive story alleging that the clinton foundation gave this money to a for profit corporation that was run by someone who is reported to be a close friend of president clinton. is this a problem for them? >> the company had a lot of primary investors including this woman and other democratic party officials, this comingles a lot of things that republicans want to highlight, how it conducted its business may be interminging the personal with financial commitments, for profit, nonprofit. and the relationship the president clinton the journal describes her as a close friend. it's going to get a lot of scrutiny. >> guess what, there was the a meetingen capitol hill we want to talk about as well between donald trump and speaker of the house paul ryan. no endorsement from speaker ryan though he did say it's the start of the pathway to reconciliation which sounds a little like some kind of a 12-step program. wa came out of that? >> that's fitting, a lot of people say republicans are
7:08 am
working through a lot of steps in terms of accepting trulp. it sounds like paul ryan is on course to endorse donald trump and i think two things are driving that. one, the pressure from members. he's only speaker of the house because republican members let him serve as speaker of the house. and you're starting to see more enthusiasm for trump among those members for various reasons, some want to get together. we saw polls that showed a competitive race in swing states, the more prom the bottom up the appetite in this republican party is going to be let's stop fighting with ourselves. we have a chance to beat hillary clinton. why aren't we united. >> the question for clinton how she is going to handle donald trumpment you think clinton world settled on an approach, how to take him on. they can't feel great about these polls that show a much tighter race. >> very big week in the election. donald trump's meeting yesterday, his phone call with lindsey graham, one of his biggest critics, trump more quickly than i thought he would
7:09 am
do and the democrats thought is consolidating support and the clintons need to damage his reputation and saying as i said he is an unserious person. >> there is also a risk in that because he has run an entire campaign saying i'm the outsider to those people now starting to embrace him. couldn't that hurt him with the base? >> that's the interesting thing because i think one of the reasons the that you didn't get endorsement from paul ryan is he sort of testing donald trump. can he play the game of politics in the more conventional way, that means you put the bland statement out, you don't start talking about it at rallies, you don't take a shot at him. that has been trump's stock in trade. ryan challenging him. >> the last three presidents ran with parties united. you can do it. it takes political dexterity. that's what trump has shown this week. >> so much to chew over. thank you. donald trump is with us on the phone. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> not sure if you have been made aware of this "washington
7:10 am
post" report that's out this morning but they obtain add recording with a voice of someone they say is in fact you, someone who is pretending to be a pr person, this is from 25 years ago. let me play a portion for you. >> what's your name again? >> john miller. >> what is your position? >> i'm sort of handling pr. he gets so much of it. >> on this tape the person talks about his date, his vorks things like that. i guess the simple question, are you aware of the tape, is it you? >> no, i don't think -- i don't know anything about it. you're telling me about it for the first time. it doesn't sound like my voice. i have many people trying to imitate my voice and you can imagine that. and this sound likes one of the scams, one of the many scams. doesn't sound like me. >> the post says you acknowledged a couple decades ago that in fact that was you but it was a joke. >> i don't think it was me. it doesn't sound like me. i don't know even what they are talking about, no idea. >> the post says this is
7:11 am
something you did routinely, you would call reporters and plant stories and say either you were john miller or john baron but it was you. is that something you did with regularity? >> no. it was not me on the phone. it was not me on the phone. it doesn't sound like me on the phone i will tell you that. it was not me on the phone. when was this, 25 years ago? >> in the early 90s. >> wow. you mean you're going so low as to talk about something that took place 25 years ago about whether or not i made a phone call? i guess you're saying under a presumed name. >> yes. under presumed name. >> okay. the answer is no. and let's get on to more current subjects. i mean i know it's wonderful but i think we have more important things. >> let me ask you this, this meeting with speaker ryan yesterday on capitol hill. you had said i think a week ago when he didn't endorse you it was a mistake. he came out of that meet, he still has not endorsed you although he said you're on the path to reconciliation. were you first of all disappointed that there was no
7:12 am
endorsement coming out of that meeting? >> no. i think it's a process. i was a little bit surprised but not that surprised frankly. we did as you know matt, get endorsed by many, many people and they are pouring in now. many senators and congressmen. we have many endorsements yesterday. i think that will come. if it doesn't come i'll go my separate way. i think i'll win the election because hillary clinton is a disaster on the assumption she gets it, even allowed to run. >> speaker ryan said after the meeting there are clearly issues on which you two disagree. we know that one of those is on that ban of muslims, he is not for it. you said you are. in recent days you called it more of a suggestion than a proposal. i'd like you to clarify that for me because i think millions of people who voted for you across the country during the primary process felt as if you were actually proposing that. are you softening your stance? >> i'm not the president right now so anything i suggest is really a suggestion, and if i were president i'd put in
7:13 am
legislation and do what i have to do. >> would you -- >> i'm looking at it strongly. we have an islamic -- really a problem with radical islamic terrorism and a president doesn't want to use the term, refuses to use the term, even though there are so many problems. he refuses to use with it the world trade center. >> are you softening your stance and using subtle differences in words simply to be more moderate to try to attract people like speaker ryan and to get -- >> no, i'm not softening my stance but i'm always flexible on issues, on many issues and i think you have to be that way. but i'm not softening my stance. we have a major problem and we have to solve the problem. we have a president that doesn't even talk about the problem, he won't even use the words, he won't call it by its right name. >> on another topic the president directed all public schools to allow transgender students to use the public restroom that matches their gender identity. is this something you agree with? >> i would leave it up to the
7:14 am
states. i would leave that and many other things frankly, but leave that up to the states. let the states decide. i think it's much better as a local issue. i don't think it's a federal issue where the federal government gets involved. i see what's happening, such a big situation and you know what, everybody has to be protected and i feel strongly about that but you're talking about a tiny, tiny group of population, with that being said everybody has to be protected but i would leave it up to the states. >> let me end on something quickly, we had former vice president dan quayle on the show yesterday, we asked him who you should choose as rauning malt. he didn't hesitate. senator rob portman of ohio. have you reached out to senator portman >> i was with him yesterday in a group. we were with the whole group of senators and frankly, was great. we had a tremendous talk, i had a great talk with rob, a great talk with all of them. many of them supported me after the meeting. >> is he on the short list? >> i'm not going to say who is on the list and i have a list of
7:15 am
about five or six, and possibly expanding. i'll make the decision by the convention and probably announce it during the convention. which will be a very exciting convention i have to tell you. rob portman is a good man, no question. >> donald trump, thanks for your call. >> thank you very much. >> and let's get more on the controversial announcement from the white house, the rights of transgender students. ron is covering that. good morning. >> good morning. president obama has been aoutspoken for transgender rights. he is getting more deeply involved in the bathroom and locker room issue. planning a sweeping directive for every public school and student. transgend esh students must be allowed to use bathrooms that match their gender identity. schools that do not comply risk the loss of federal aid. that coming in a letter from the department of justice and education to public schools nationwide. the letter first reported by
7:16 am
"the new york times" says educators have an obligation to provide equal access to all students under title 9. including everything from restrooms to locker rooms. officials say the guidelines are attempt to clarify civil rights protections for transgender students and an issue that left educators and parents frustrated. last fall students in missouri walked out in protest after a transgender student was allowed to use the girls bathroom. some parents were upset that the school does not have a clear policy. >> there is no rule set forth and i think we can agree that changing in the locker room or going to the restroom are very private activities. >> the new guidelines days after the justice department and the state of north carolina sued each other over a state law restricting access to public restrooms, a law that attorney general loretta lynch says discriminates against the transgender community. >> we stand with you and we will do everything we can to protect you going forward. and please know that the history
7:17 am
is on your side. >> it's important to point out the administration's directive is not a legal requirement, it's impact because of the threat of cutting off federal money that schools rely on. president's critics say all of this is a step by this administration to wade into matters that should be decided by states and local communities. >> ron allen, thank you. the commander of the ten american sailors who wandered into iranian waters in january, captured and detained has been fired by the u.s. navy. in a statement the navy said it lost confidence in eric rash, the executive officer of the squadron that included the 10 sailors. an official says rash failed to provide effective leadership leading to a lack of oversight and failure to maintain standards in that unit. he has been reassigned. >> two state troopers suspended while officials investigate the violent arrest of a suspect following a high-speed chase through massachusetts and new hampshire. officers recorded on wednesday
7:18 am
using force against the driver who appeared to be surrendering a few moments prior. massachusetts and new hampshire suspended one trooper each, officials say the driver was wanted on multiple warrants for assault and battery, also accused of nearly ramming a police cruiser during another chase three days earlier. >> we have an update on a story, a controversial story we told you about on thursday. george zimmerman's attempt to auction off the gun he used to shoot and kill trayvon martin. people using fake accounts hijacking the site with phony bids at one point the bidding surpassed $65 million. the account of the leading bidder was later deleted, the website for united gun group began hosting the auction thursday after another website took down that auction. >> turn to mr. roker, a check of the weekend forecast. >> we're looking at warm weather for our friends in the west. big dome of high pressure dominating the jet stream to the north. so look at some of these temperatures today.

7:31 am
is actually trump himself. we asked trump about it when he joined us earlier this morning. >> it doesn't sound like my voice at all. i have many, many people that are trying to imitate my voice. you can imagine that. this sounds like one of the scams, one of the many scams. doesn't sound like me. >> "washington post" claims at the time, trump admitted it was him on the phone, but called it a joke gone awry. the u.s. navy fired the commander of the ten american soldiers who wandered into iranian waters. they were captured and briefly detained. the navy said it lost confidence in the commander. new developments in the malpractice case of joan rivers. joe fryer has the latest on this. morning. >> good morning. rivers' family reached a settlement with the doctors and clinic where the comedian suffered fatal complications. details of the deal are confidential, including how much money will family will get. rivers' daughter melissa says

7:33 am
suit, which alleged missteps. among them, a physician took photos of rivers while she was ste da sedated on the operating table, and doctors waited 12 minutes to call 911. >> it won't bring her back, but i want the answers. the only way to get the answers is by filing. >> reporter: in a statement, the clinic says, the parties agreed to settle the case to avoid protracted litigation. we remain committed to providing quality, compassionate health care services that meet the needs of the community. melissa rivers says moving forward, my focus will be to ensure that no one ever has to go through what my mother, cooper and i went through. >> what went on >> what went on in that clinic was so unacceptable for any patient. i figure worst case scenario, at least a conversation is starting about the regulations that govern these outpatient medical facilities. >> in an effort to prevent this from happening again she plans
7:34 am
to meet with lawmakers to discuss how to improve safety standards and regulations. >> thank you. >> i had the chance to speak to melissa on the phone last night. she said the discovery process to this case was extremely emotional. as part of the process she actually got to learn what her mom's last words were. she says those will remain personal but she satisfied that the doctors in the clinic have accepted responsibility for what happened to her mother. >> that is very important to her. now to a startling sight at the airport out in phoenix, a screening system problem caused more than 3,000 checked bags to miss their flight. it's the latest black eye for the tsa and it comes with the agency once again warns that the long lines we've seen at airport security check points recently may get even worse. we're at reagan national airport. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the tsa now says 35% of their people quit within the first year on the job.

7:37 am
busy. let's get back to what happened in phoenix. the pictures are unbelievable. 3,000 bags mied their flights. in other words, people left without their bags. they had to truck those bags to tucson and to san diego and fly them out of those airports because they couldn't check them for explosives at the phoenix airport. the tsa says it's worked through that problem. they think it's fixed. they thank everybody for their patience but it' wearing thin. back to you. >> tom, thank you very much. >> summer is just beginning too. >> let's get a check of the weather now from mr. roker. >> it's bad when you get home from your trip before your luggage does. very bad. let's show you what we've got as far as temperatures are concerned. some cooling coming in enthough it's fairly mild in the northeast. this cooler air will be making its way -- look at the temperatures 10 to 20 degrees below formal all the way out to rapid city. and then for saturday, the great lakes get involved all the way into the northeast and by next

>> i like it. >> no. >> i could have guessed that. could have guessed both of those. some of the best story ideas come from you at home. we got this one right from our rossen report e-mail. lee from north carolina writing, for some fun, try comparing fast food photos with the products as they actually are sold. ed from california chiming in with another e-mail. please do an expose on what we actually get. you spoke, and i'm listening. this morning, we are about to find out. >> you can't get cheesiness like this. >> reporter: the commercials are mouth watering. >> a delicious case deburger. >> reporter: this user asking, where is the chicken? #fast food fail. another saying, i was expecting more than just a shell. others posting side by side images of a beautiful burger from the chain's website, and the burger that ended up in their bag. so what will we get?
7:45 am
i hit some of the country's biggest fast food chains. let's start at taco bell. you can't miss the commercials for their quesalupe. >> it'll be bigger than everything. >> looks pretty close. it's pretty filled up. in the commercial, when you break it in half, the cheese comes out. we'll see. yeah, look at that. cheesy. way to be, taco bell. if you'll excuse me. >> reporter: good news at burger king with their latest creation. >> this is the angriest whopper ever. >> this looks like the picture. the ingredients are coming out, vibrant. i'm impressed. >> reporter: but hold on to your buns. >> thank you. >> reporter: at mcdonald's, i order the classic big mac. >> while it is massive. >> reporter: the bun is so big, the meat juicy, perfectly melted cheese and sauce dripping down. let's see what's in our bag. >> doesn't quite look like the commercial, does it? much flatter.
7:46 am
in the commercial, the meat is coming out from inside the bun. even if you look at the meat, look at that. it's shrivelled up and looks dry. certainly doesn't look like the commercial. not to me. >> reporter: mcdonald's telling nbc news, whether it is a photo shoot or what we serve customers, we use all the same tasty, quality ingredients in our big mac. the biggest letdown of the day, subway. meatball marinara. here's the commercial. and the reality. >> this looks nothing like the commercial. look at that. you can't even see the meatballs when you're holding the sandwich. in the commercial, the meatballs are so big, they're popping out of the sandwich. here, no. let's see what this looks like when you open the sandwich up. i don't know. pretty small, little meatballs. >> reporter: subway telling us they have many satisfied customers and the hand crafted sandwiches include the same amount of ingredients that you see in photos and commercials. but acknowledging, for images and commercials, the sandwiches
7:47 am
are made differently, with the ingredients placed at the open edge of the sandwich and not spread throughout. at the end of the day, our results were mixed. but as for the taste -- >> that's what i'm talking about. >> gained four pounds, and it was well worth it. we are getting breaks news in the fast food world. mcdonald's announcing it is testing fresh beef at several of its locations in dallas, texas. the company says it is too early to say whether the fresh beef could replace the frozen patties nationwide. by the way, at all the chains, if you ask them to remain it, they'll probably remain it for you. i don't know if it'll look better, but they'll remake zbit >> the meatball sandwich looked good in the commercial. favorite concerts on the plaza before we unveil this summer's all-star li

8:32 am
we're in for some nice, quiet weather across the bay area with some morning clouds and afternoon sunshine. we're starting to see some breaks in the clouds now as we take a look at our golden gate camera and looking now at temperatures that are in the mid-to-upper 50s. still 51 degrees in santa rosa. expect a high of 75 in gilroy, half moon bay 63 degrees and the embarcaderos to 61. and calistoga reaching 77 and 71 in livermore. >> announcer: 100 years of national parks today is sponsored by camping world. get one-stop shopping for everything rv at your nearby camping world rv super center. >> we have a special announcement. this week, we got to explore the beautiful outdoors with our series 100 years of national parks today. as part of the celebration, we ran a photo contest for a chance to win a brand-new freedom elite rv, courtesy of our sponsor, camping world.
8:33 am

8:34 am
have is the talk and the headlines fade quickly. >> that's true. >> why did you decide to do this now? >> i couldn't understand the disconnect between the fact that 90% of the public really favors universal background checks. after sandy hook, everyone thought, this was the watershed moment. something would be done. i couldn't understand the disconnect between public opinion and our elected officials. i wanted to uncover why nothing was happening on this issue. >> and people tend to think of this as an either/or debate. black and white. >> for us or against us. >> exactly. which has been said by the head of the nra. you try to examine the middle ground. 74% of members of the nra are for universal background checks. >> it was shocking. we talked to members outside their convention in nashville, and most said they favor -- i think there was one person who disagreed with it -- but they all said they favor universal background checks. we said if you're on the terror watch list in the country, it's
8:35 am
legal to buy a gun. they were shocked by that. not only that, but the nra represents 5% of gun owners. there's this silent majority. i think it's hopeful because there are a lot of common ground. >> you talk about personal stories in this. you tell the story of phillips, who lost their daughter jesse in the aurora theater shooting. what did you learn about them? >> they are amazing people. i think this film has so much heart. i know you watched it, matt. we do embed with all these families who have lost loved ones. they lost their adorable daughter jessi, 24 years old, in aurora, colorado. they were gun owners and are gun owners. >> right. >> and they belong to the nra. they just never thought about this. their views on guns, they became advocates and really experts. they've really evolved. >> there is a very common
8:36 am
expression out there that says the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. yet, they asked their daughter's boyfriend, who was there, if he'd had a gun at the time, would it have made a difference? >> i thought it was one of the most impactful moments of the film. one of the first things they asked him -- because he had a concealed carry permit. because he traveled from texas to colorado -- >> couldn't fly with it. >> yeah, he didn't have his gun. one of the first things they asked is, would it have made a difference if you had had your gun? he said, absolutely not. there was so much chaos. they were trapped. more innocent people would have died. so this is the argument that's perpetrated by the gun lobby. most public health experts and gun safety experts say, it's just a spacious argument. >> we worked together here ten years. we covered so many of these stories. i remember your coverage of columbine. >> right. >> was it difficult to separate what was deeply personal to you from the professional?
8:37 am
>> no, not really. matt, i went in with an open mind. yes, columbine was devastating. of course, that interview with matthew scholes and craig scott, i'll never forget it. it was one of the most meaningful conversations i've had in my career. it was so raw. it was the morning after. i've actually kept up with craig scott. i saw him the other day for a glass of wine because he was here in new york. you know, i really -- i wanted to have an open mind. i wanted to under the psyche of gun owners in this country and what they were afraid of. they're very fearful of confiscation, which has been gemmed up by the gun lobby. when gun sales go down, the gun lobby has become a marketing arm for the gun manufacturers. they don't speak for their members. >> the supreme court ruled out confiscation. you have a right under the second amendment to have a gun. >> even justice scalia said it wasn't unlimited. >> thank you for bringing attention to it.
8:38 am
>> thank you for bringing me on the show. >> it airs may 15th. coming up, bob harper on why keeping weight off is to difficult. first on a friday morning, this is "today" on nbc. first on a friday morning, this is "today" on nbc.
8:39 am
8:40 am
we're back at 8:40. losing weight is hard enough. we know that. for some, keeping it off can be a bigger challenge. a recent study found that after examining the weight gain of 14 contestants from "the biggest loser." bob harper is now the show's host. good morning. >> good morning. >> i read this article with interest. i can't imagine that you read it with a lot of interest, as well. >> i thought it was super interesting. i think that losing weight is the easiest part. it's keeping it off. i think that's what the whole
8:41 am
study was and the whole report was. >> we know that. keeping weight off is hard to do. >> yeah. >> i thought what was disturbing and upsetting was this notion after having gone through the process of losing all this weight, that their metabolisms were slower. they were, in some ways, bodies were more conditioned to put the weight back on, had they never dieted at all. >> you make up a really good point. our bodies want to be the weight we've been for such a long time. that's why it's a battle. if you've been overweight for a long period of time, your body is going to fight you tooth and nail to get back. that's why you have to be so diligent. you have to watch every single thing that you are doing. no matter if you've lost weight on "the biggest loser," weight watchers, jenny craig. however you lost the weight. >> i guess it's a reminder that you have to stay vigilant. >> that's right. you have to stay vigilant. you have to think about what you're doing every single day. think about what you've lost weight. you cut out the carbs, the sugar. you can never go back to that kind of lifestyle again.
8:42 am
you have to change every single thing you're doing. you have to think about it every single day. >> yeah. let's talk about something called intermittent fasting. let's go over here. this is something that you personally have been trying. how does it work? >> i actually love it. i mean, i've been doing it a while now. you think about people that say their me labtitabolism sloed dw. if you skip one meal, you offset it immediately. >> i thought you had to eat to keep the metabolism going. >> studies are always changing. studies now are saying that, like, your body will start to have to work on its own fat, rely on its own fat that's existing on the body to start burning. >> how does -- it says, skip one meal a day, and fast for a certain period. >> think about when you go to bed at night. hopefully you're getting eight hours of sleep, right? count that as part of your fasting. >> okay. >> then skip the first meal maybe.
8:43 am
go into your two, two and a half meals a day. that's what i normally do. >> this means skipping breakfast. i thought we weren't supposed to do that. >> i'm not a breakfast eater anymore. i like to eat. if i'll have two meals, i'm going to have two, big, substantial meals. >> our next board. i would think, my meal will consist of pizza and ice cream. would not that be recommended? >> i wouldn't want you to do that. pizza and ice cream is not going to help you to lose weight. though you don't need to lose any weight. focus on getting a lot of vegetables, good fats, and then get your protein. people are obsessed with, am i getting enough protein? if you're having a chicken breast, you'll be good to go. focus on your vegetables. >> i don't see carbs on the list. >> starchy carbs, sugar, shouldn't be a part of the diet. >> thank you. the magazine for girls under fire for a controversial swimsuit spread. more on that.
8:44 am
first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:45 am
8:46 am
>> > we're back. geared towards 8 to 13-year-old girls is at the center of controversy. >> hoda is here with that story. >> good morning. finding the best swim suit for your body type is a standard magazine article. when it is aimed at young girls it becomes a real problem. >> reporter: as warmer days draw near, a popular magazine already feeling the heat. "discovery girls" now in deep trouble for sending a message many feel drifted from the shallow end. >> is this for children? >> it's not age appropriate. >> i think it's totally unnecessary to categorize young girls and body types. >> reporter: splashed on the pages of a magazine priding itself on building the confidence of young girls, a spread entitled "what swimsuit best suits you," seemingly encouraging girls to evaluate their bodies and decide how best to hide their flaws.
8:47 am
descriptions like, curvy on top. straight up and down. rounder in the middle. unleashing waves of criticism online. with one twitter user sarcastically saying, hey, why not include diet tips and surgical options with this? your readers are 9, after all. tick-tock. another tweet reading, i'm sure there is an article somewhere for boys on their swimsuit choices, right? such a fail. >> when girls see images that tell them that they need to look a certain way or hide areas of their bodies to feel valuable, they get the message that something might be wrong with their bodies. >> reporter: in a statement to nbc news, the magazine's founder and ceo said, quote, we want to make it clear that "discovery girls" does not promote nor support body shaming. this article was intended to show every body shape was acceptable, not that they should be ashamed of the shape they have.
8:48 am
>> if i was you -- >> reporter: one celebrity saying, me, too, when it comes to experiencing the pressures to look thin. this week, meghan trainor pulling the plug on her new music video when she noticed producers air brushed her waste. >> i'm so sick of it. i'm over it. i took it down. >> any time high-profile people get involved in the body image conversation, it creates a springboard for parents and teachers and mentors to talk to kids about body image. >> reporter: a little star power to perhaps get everyone on the same page. >> the founder and ceo issued an apology on facebook, agreeing with the angry readers. saying, quote, it's hard for me to believe an article so contrary to our magazine's mission could have been published on our pages. seems to have gone through a lot of hands before it was printed.
8:49 am
i have a lot of people, i think, upset about it, including folks at the magazine. and meghan trainor will be hosting with me today. >> i saw that. >> i'll ask her about it. it's a good one. >> hoda, thank you. ahead, julia roberts, george clooney and jodie foster talking about movies and friendships. keir is live with that. first, this is "today" on nbc. about movies and friendships. keir is live with that. first, this is "today" on nbc.

9:07 am
putting on a first-class experience for all of the heros that participated. it was unreal. unreal. >> for people who don't know, it's active-duty and veteran military from around the world who have been injured in some way. >> yep. >> and they get to participate in basically paralympic-style games. >> yes. and in talking with the competitors, in talking with these wounded warriors, it really gave them so much life and so much hope and something to drive for. and that is extremely important when in their situation. and like i said, the games themselves brings this community together so they can share their experiences with each other. it's very difficult for me to relate to someone like that. but when someone has gone through the same experience and they're there with the same competitive drive and the will to succeed, you get a bunch of people, that positive and that competitive together and great things happen. it was completely -- >> you were on the rugby team? >> i was the coach of the wheelchair rugby team. and i did not want to participate because i didn't want to take a spot off the floor from somebody. i want people to get out there and do what they've got to do. i was really basically a
