6:00 am
a plane got blown out of the sky. >> he is not qualified to be president of the united states. >> unacceptable. >> whoa. good morning and welcome to sunday "today," i'm willie geist. settle in. this morning we're on tour and back stage with dierks bentley. he grew up with country music dreams, listening to george strait and johnny cash in the back seat of his dad's car. now with 14 number one songs and a head lining new tour, he's living them. >> i want to reach everyone in this whole stage. from the front row to people up in the draft seats.
6:01 am
break down this fourth wall between us and the crowd. it's like okay, now we're on a whole other level. and for me, too. >> then as baby boomers retire at the rate of 10,000 a day we'll introduce you to the 29-year-old who's disrupting the american health care system with a great idea, and an ipad. >> i think we're building an incredible product, a transformative product and it's able to grow quickly and serve a lot of families in the highest quality ways. >> plus tom brokaw in paris with the gripping story of a survivor of the attacks there six months ago. what he saw and how he and his city are doing today. >> has it changed the way you want to live the rest of your life? >> of course. >> in what way? >> i want to live. >> for the moment? >> for the moment. >> let's begin with some breaking news overnight. the u.s. launching an airstrike saturday against the leader of the afghan taliban. today, top afghan officials and the taliban are saying he has been killed. jim miklaszewski is at the white house for us.
6:02 am
mik, who is this guy? >> this is taliban leader mullah mans your. officials here in washington are confident they got their man but won't confirm it until they're absolutely sure. armed and unarmed surveillance drones watched mansoor get into a vehicle and drive off. not one but several drones fired hell-fire missiles obliterating the target. this should deliver a significant blow to the taliban, without mansoor's strong leadership the group could splinter somewhat. and diminish its mill temporary strength. but the taliban over these years has proved resilient, surviving 15 years of american military strikes. america's longest war. while this is a significant blow, it appears, so far, to be far from fatal. one more point. those videos and pictures show the attack occurred in a remote country road well away from any populated areas.
6:03 am
that has been the u.s. strategy to avoid any tragedies. >> all right, jim miklaszewski at the white house for us on a sunday morning. thanks so much, we appreciate it. let's turn now to the race for the white house. with hillary clinton tangling with donald trump. the presumptive republican nominee has been saying clinton wants to abolish the second amendment. secretary clinton speaking at a trayvon martin foundation conference last night accused trump of pandering to the gun lobby. she also slammed what she called his dangerous gun proposals. >> he said that also on his first day in office he'd mandate that every school in america allow guns in classrooms. every school, he said. that idea isn't just way out there. it's dangerous. >> katy tur is outside trump tower this morning. trump speaking a lot about guns at the friday nra conference. he also called out clinton on
6:04 am
twitter, writing this, crooked hillary wants to get rid of all guns and yet she's surrounded by body guards who are fully armed. no more guns to protect hillary. many national polls, and one we may see today, showing this race is tightening quickly, even some showing trump is leading clinton. what's the state of play right now? >> it's tighter, willie, because both of the candidates are now starting to consolidate the rank and file within their party. trump even more so because he is the presumptive nominee. meanwhile, both of them still have extraordinarily high unfavorables when it comes to the general electorate. but as you were say something, hillary clinton really fighting back, saying that she was not going to pander to the nra, as trump got the endorsement of the nra. falsely claiming that hillary clinton wants to ban all guns. meanwhile, he is calling for a ban on all gun-free zones. interestingly enough, he told this to a room at the nra, a room full of gun owners who were told themselves to leave their guns in their cars by secret
6:05 am
service. trump's trip to the nra part of his trust me i'm a republican tour that's been going on of late, trying to get out the doubters to come onto his side and to back him. so far it's been working. there are still reports there are a lot of major donors out there who will refuse to back trump. >> katy tur, thank you so much. let's turn to some other news this morning and the investigation into the crash of egyptair flight 804. this morning for the first time we're hearing air traffic control audio from about two hours before the crash. >> egyptair 804 contact padova 10725, good night. >> 0725 padova control egyptair 804. good night. >> seems to confirm reports of a routine flight most of the way. investigators can't say if the downing of the plane was terrorism or an accident. investigators have said smoke alarms apparently were going off in the moments before the crash. two climbers have died after
6:06 am
reaching the summit of mt. everest. a dutch man and an australian woman were coming down from the top when officials say they started showing signs of altitude sickness, and later passed away. it's been a dangerous week up on mt. everest. another 30 climbers are also sick or frostbitten. there will be no triple crown winner after exaggerator won the preakness on saturday. the horse came from behind to race past kentucky derby winner nyquist, who finished third. exaggerator will run in the belmont stakes in two weeks. nyquist owners have yet to decide if he will. and a beautiful moment at last night's detroit tigers game when an 89-year-old holocaust survivor fulfilled a lifelong dream. singing the national anthem before the game. ♪ for the land of the free and the home of the brave ♪
6:07 am
>> that is so cool. she has been a tigers fan since she moved to detroit 60 years ago, after she was imprisoned in several european concentration camps. we've assembled another strong crew at the table to talk through the week. ladies, good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. >> soledad o'brien, a welcome face to viewers, given her work at nbc, cnn, hbo. soledad had a run as the anchor of this show in this country time slot -- >> many years ago. >> when she co-hosted "weekend today" starting in 199. she's the executive producer of the film war comes home about military veterans when they return from war. we're going to talk about that in just a moment. elise jordan served on the security council under george w. bush. she worked on rand paul's presidential campaign. she also was on our first ever show. you have a lifetime invitation here.
6:08 am
we're like the masters that way. and kristen welker is nbc's outstanding white house correspondent for nbc. finds herself on the road these days covering hillary clinton in the presidential campaign and this is kind of a full circle moment for you kristen sitting next to soledad with whom you worked. >> we were here -- >> that's right. i was soledad's writer/researcher for "weekend today." helped work on a lot of the breaking news segments and soledad was really one of my first mentors in this business. >> i understand she helped you put together the tape for your first job. if only we had footage of that. there we go. >> my hair has some work. >> shoulder pads. shoulder pads. >> this is one of my first years from when i worked at krcr in california. soledad helped me get ready for that first job, put together my first tape. gave me so much incredible advice. one of the biggest pieces she said, always listen as a journalist. that's one of the most important skills and i try to remember that every day. >> the woman who was the executive producer of the show,
6:09 am
many kajillion years ago. we're always sending screen shots. hey, have you seen kristen? so we're wildly proud of you. all done on your own. it was a pleasure to mentor you but you're amazing. >> honor to be here. >> great job covering this campaign. let's talk about it. elise, new numbers we've seen from a couple of different polls and later today from an nbc poll is nationally, i know this is not a national referendum, it's not the way we vote, the race is very tight between donald trump and hillary clinton and in some cases he's even leading. she leads in all these demographic groups we talk about. he's leading independents now. do these new tight numbers tell you more about donald trump or hillary clinton? >> i think it says more about the state of the race until now and having had so many candidates in the republican field. now it starts to narrow, i think donald trump's numbers were expected to rise. i think from this point forward, though, it's going to be interesting to see how they winnow down support and if donald trump is able to do better with women, with minorities, with groups that are really going to make a
6:10 am
difference in important swing states. >> what's remarkable soledad is how unpopular both these candidates are. trump has pulled up a little bit and almost even in unfavorable ratings with hillary clinton. they're both upside down. >> it's been a really miserable -- you've been reporting on it. >> yes. >> it's been a miserable race, nasty, negative. all three candidates -- we'll keep bernie sanders in this conversation -- are flawed and i would say the populous knows that and i think the conversation around it is really unhappy. i think a lot of donald trump's rise, though, is the media's constant, nonstop coverage of donald trump and everything is framed through the lens of donald trump. whatever happens to hillary clinton, it's how donald trump feels about this thing that happened to hillary clinton. that's correlated as well to some of those numbers. >> he has convinced a lot of people to follow him along this road. bernie versus hillary. you covered this so closely, kristen. he's not backing off. >> he's not. >> if anything he's escalated. his attacks are more about the
6:11 am
system and the dnc and the party but he's still going after her on the stump. what does he want to extract from her if she gets the nomination, what does he want from her? >> i think ultimately he wants to have a say in the party's platform and there are some indications he's going to get that. the dnc saying they're going to make him part of that process. and the clinton campaign as well. and he's not backing down. the challenge becomes how do democrats unify after what has been a blistering fight between the democrats? i think the answer is they have to fight until the very end and secretary clinton needs to put up a real fight until the very end in states like new jersey, in california. i'm told that that's exactly what she's going to do. because if you talk to top democratic strategists they say at the end of this process sanders' supporters need to feel as though she won, if she does win, fair and square. and that that's the first step in terms of sanders saying okay now it's time to rally around hillary clinton. by the way, president obama could be very pivotal to that process as well. >> is this part of the reason donald trump is doing better
6:12 am
against hillary clinton because she's fighting a two-front war against him but also against bernie sanders? >> he is benefiting from that, the fact that bernie is still staying at it with hillary clinton. but i do think donald trump will give hillary clinton a very close race and i think that trump could beat hillary. if he actually shows discipline and if he can move his unfavorables. because the wrapping of hillary clinton is that she's a liar. the wrapping against donald trump is he's a sexist pig. or he could ostensibly change that if he wanted to. is he going to be able to do that? i don't know. >> he is winning independents right now, has the republican party lined up behind him after they fought him for so long. soledad i want to talk about your excellent film called "the war comes home" follows two iraq war veterans seeking help for post traumatic stress. let's take a look. >> it's like being in a burning building. the only way to get out is jump out the window. you don't want to die, but you don't want to burn either. i told my wife that --
6:13 am
>> what's at the heart of this project with you? >> when he talks about being done he talks about he's going to kill himself. i mean he's done and his wife later in the film tells us, as she's crying, that she's made it very clear he's about to head off to this 5 1/2 day program and if it doesn't work he's going to kill himself. so the stakes are very high. we were really interested in very much embedding with two people who were struggling with most traumatic stress before they went off to a 5 1/2 day program, through the entire program, and then coming back with them and very closely sort of seeing what works and what does not work as they feel like this is their last opportunity to turn their lives around from this past that is likely heading to something disastrous for them. >> we all watched the v.a. scandal. we know the numbers, 22 veteran suicides per day. still hard to say that out loud and believe it's actually true. >> i think that number is is actually significantly off. that's not counting people who die death by cop. that's not counting people who become addicts and basically do
6:14 am
drugs or drink themselves to death. that number i don't even think is that accurate. >> what are the solutions that seem to be working in small places if they're not working in the v.a.? >> in this particular program called save a warrior some of the things that they did are done across the board in other places and at the v.a. as well. they have equine therapy. you saw video of a ropes course where they bring people to the point of feeling like they're going to die because they're up on these wires and have to rely on each other. they do a lot of therapy and they also kind of create a brotherhood in this case, because it's all men, there's a women's program, as well, but they learn that they have to be responsible for other people. i think a big challenge is we send people off to war with a very specific strategy. it's about breaking people down and building this brotherhood. when you come back, there's not that, right? it's just like, and you're back. and you kind of need a system, i think, that helps reunite people back to what might be a civilian life. if they're leaving the military. >> good for you for shining a light on it. in theaters this tuesday. >> one day only, may 24.
6:15 am
. i hope you get a chance to see it. >> we'll be watching for sure. stay with me for the highs and lows of the week, including death as political statement. hall of fame obituary speaking for many americans this election year. and in foreign policy news, iran's revolutionary guard has a warning for kim kardashian. sunday "today" will be right back after a short break and well, we've got more sunshine here on this sunday, look behind me, san jose, all lit up in the golden sunshine this morning. it's cool, 49 degrees, 50s across the bay area. it will warm up a little more than yesterday. temperatures will be close to p 70 in places like the south bay. cool along the inner bay, san francisco, 62 today. tomorrow, similar. and we have a chance of rain in the forecast. we'll talk about that this morning at 7:00. hope to see you then. neutrogena® ultra sheer.
