the incident raising concerns about safety at zoos all across the country. and speaking out. the motorcyclists who survived this road rage incident telling their story to nbc news. >> he said -- i can't say that on tv either. before we knew it, he was on top of it. >> today, wednesday, june 1st, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on this wednesday morning. we start with major news. it comes from the world of health. >> yes. pretty disturbing. a pregnant woman with the zika virus has given birth to a baby in new jersey. >> the birth believed to be the first of its kind in the continental united states. natalie is here with the details on this. a lot of people paying attention. >> a lot of people very concerned, with good reason, guys.
the baby not only has the virus, but a condition known as microcephaly, which stunts the infant's growth and often causes severe brain damage. it's important to point out the mother was visiting the u.s. from honduras and had contracted the zika virus before she arrived here. >> reporter: this morning, a team of doctors at new jersey's hackensack medical center providing intensive care to a baby girl born overnight with microcephaly, the serious medical condition commonly linked to the zika virus. the 31-year-old mother, who has not been identified, was visiting the u.s. from honduras. she reportedly contracted zika early in her pregnancy after she was bitten by an infected mosquito. it wasn't until last friday that an ultrasound found the microcephaly in her unborn child. >> i think all pregnant women should be aware this is a travel-related case of zika and this does not occur in the u.s. >> reporter: this on the heels of new guidelines released by the world health organization. the w.h.o. advising people who
recently travelled to zika-infected countries to wait eight weeks to conceive, even if neither partner has had symptoms. that's twice the length of time the w.h.o. previously recommended. >> the guidance is to consider delaying pregnancy, certainly recognizing this is tough for some populations. >> reporter: major league baseball player francisco rodriguez revealed he contracted the virus this past offseason in his homeland. the 34-year-old relief pitcher for the detroit tigers, a native of crackous, venezuela, was ill for two weeks. >> officials have been pressured to move the olympics, but the w.h.o. says doing so would not significantly alter the international spread of the zika virus. guys? >> we'll be hearing a lot more about this, natalie. >> big deal.
we move to politics now. a new name surfacing in the race for the white house as donald trump rips the media during a fiery press conference. we have complete decision 2016 coverage starting with hallie jackson. she joins us from trump tower in new york city. good morning to you. >> hi, savannah, good morning. the scene here at trump tower, a combative candidate giving us a preview of what a president trump would be like. while he brushed off our questions about a possible independent opponent, this morning, word that someone new could challenge the presumptive republican nominee. many americans now asking, who? >> reporter: donald trump's new mystery challenger revealed. multiple sources telling nbc news, conservative writer david french is considering an independent run. >> you give all of these people another option. >> reporter: but without money and name recognition, many think it is a long shot to take on the billionaire businessman. trump, not commenting yet, taking on his favorite target instead, the media. >> you're a sleaze.
i've watched you on television. you're a real beauty. i find the political press to be unbelievably dishonest. >> reporter: trump, angry over questions about what happened to the $6 million he says he raised for veterans back in january. >> i have never received such bad publicity for doing such a good job. i'll give you the names, if that's what you want. >> reporter: trump detailing $5.6 million in donations to various veterans charities,icallying $1 million of his own money. an nbc news analysis find about a third of the donations, $1.9 million, was dispersed only this past week, when pressures started building for trump to explain what happened to the money. >> he bragged for months about raising $6 million for veterans and donating $1 million himself, but it took a reporter to shame him into actually making his contribution. >> reporter: trump taking a testy tone, promising if he makes it to the white house, this is what to expect in the briefing room. >> yeah, it is. let me tell you something.
i'm a person -- yeah, it is going to be like this, david. >> reporter: his insults aimed not just at the media, but his fellow republicans, too. conservative writer bill kristol. >> bill kristol is a loser. >> reporter: new mexico governor susana martinez. >> he wasn't nice. >> reporter: former rival mitt romney. >> why should people believe you when you say you'll bring the party together? >> i made robocalls for romney. he let us down. >> reporter: hammering romney, calling him a stiff in the interview in the hollywood reporter. >> romney himself, by the way, the subject of speculation, he could be considering an independent run. a top aide reiterating, romney is not running. he is tweeting about david french, calling him an honorable, intelligent and patriotic person. matt and savannah? >> hallie, by the way, among the targets at the press conference, the judge who oversees the fraud
case involving trump university. that's the case going on right now. there was a trove of records just unsealed. what did we learn? >> these are the playbooks surrounding the case. used to sell the course for the for-profit university. it shows the sales people were told to play to people's emotions, telling them you don't sell products, benefits or solutions, you sell feelings. the salespeople were also told to suggest to potential customers to rely on credit card debt, retirement funds, to pay for trump university. all of it, savannah, opening up trump to potential new attacks from his democratic rivals. >> we've already seen that in action. hallie jackson, thank you. let us turn now to the democrats. hillary clinton gets ready to shift her campaign to delegate-rich california, where bernie sanders is gaining ground in the polls. nbc's kristen welker is on the trail with secretary clinton in new jersey. kristen, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you.
secretary clinton will spend the day campaigning here in new jersey before she heads back out west tomorrow. her top aides telling me there will be no shortage of attacks for donald trump. all this as her campaign is coming under fresh scrutiny for its strategy and messaging. >> reporter: bernie sanders barn storming california late into the night. >> i think we're going to win here in california. >> reporter: as hillary clinton takes a page out of the trump playbook, flooding the airwaves on the phone, calling into news programs. telling msnbc's chris hayes -- >> i'm feeling very positive about my campaign in california. we are working really hard. >> reporter: but the clinton team is clearly concerned, with polls showing a tightening race. she's added a five-day campaign swing throughout the golden state. >> i want to cover as much of the state as i possibly can. >> reporter: clinton was also on defense tuesday, amid criticism she hasn't held a formal press conference in months. >> i have done nearly 300 interviews just in 2016.
>> reporter: trump tweeting late tuesday, i am getting great credit for my press conference today. crooked hillary should be admonished for not having a press conference in 179 days. clinton aides say while she campaigns in california, clinton will keep her eye on her likely challenger. >> i think the problem here is the difference between what donald trump says and what donald trump does. >> reporter: as both candidates gear up for the fall fight, some democrats expressing concern. that while trump's campaign has a clear theme -- >> we're going to make america great again! >> reporter: clinton's message seems to keep shifting. >> i'm fighting for everyone who has ever been knocked down but refused to be knocked out. breaking down barriers has been one of the major themes to my campaign. we are stronger together in facing our internal challenges and our external ones. >> reporter: clinton's team says stronger together is aimed, in part, at countering trump's decisive rhetoric in the general election and they argue her
guiding principle hasn't changed. >> some of her democratic critics are concerned her messaging has been muddled. has that hurt her with voters? >> i don't think the messaging has been muddled at all. particularly the last few weeks. our country is going to be stronger when every single american can live up to their god-given potential. >> a new quinnipiac poll just out this morning shows secretary clinton with a slim lead in a hypothetical general election matchup against donald trump, 45% to 41%. yesterday, she picked up a key endorsement. california governor jerry brown said it is time to unite the party to take on trump. now, the reality here, secretary clinton can win the nomination without winning california. but if she wins there, she could blunt any remaining argument sanders has for staying in the race. matt and savannah? >> kristen, thank you very much. chuck todd is nbc's political director and moderator of nbc's "meet the press." good morning to you.
>> good morning, sir. >> over the weekend bill kristol teased us with a name, a person who would be a respected, qualified independent candidate for president. turns out he was talking about david french. yes, respective and qualified, a veteran. but be honest with me, when you heard it was david french, what was your first question? >> it was who? i had to double check. did he really mean the guy from "national review"? i mean, it was sort of one of those moments. i, for the life of me, matt, if bill kristol and the never trump people are so emphatic about finding somebody else other than donald trump, there is a ticket. the libertarian party ticket is not one but two former republican governors. >> weld and johnson. >> it seems silly to go down this road with somebody most people have never heard -- bill kristol has higher name i.d. than david french. >> write the bumper sticker for david french's campaign. what women it say? >> i might go, country first, vote french.
or who i am and why am i here? >> chuck, it's hard to follow up that. let's talk about the donald trump news conference yesterday. obviously, we know it is a no-lose proposition to blast the media. let's not get distracted by that. let's go to the substance. where do we net out on what happened with the donations to the veterans. and also this issue of the trump university documents that halle just talked about. >> i would say to me, there were two more important take aways than the back and forth with the media. number one is the trump university. you know why these documents are public? because donald trump has done nothing but beat the living daylights out of this judge. the more he's done that, the more the judge has basically said, our credibility is called into question. we have to put everything out here. it is a reminder, is this the way he would govern? is this how he would act in office? any critic from the judiciary branch, another branch of government. this is something minor in his own office.
if he did this while in office, it could trigger a constitutional crisis. it is truly borderline irresponsible behavior, on that front. on the second thing, to me, that jumped out of the press conference, again, skipping the media, was his willingness to just trash anybody who's not form him, including republicans. it may work politically but, again, it's no way to govern. he will find out he is lonely in the oval office. >> may work politically, it plays well to the people who have been long-time trump supporters. >> right. >> does it expand his support though with people on the fence? >> not only does not expand his support, it actually is hurting him financially. the point of that question, where he snapped out of it and said, hey, i'm not going to -- i am who i am. i'm always going to go this way. it was about how the chief fundraiser, essentially for the republican governor's association, the organization that new mexico's susana
martinez leads, said, will you stop bashing republicans or i won't be able to raise money for you. if you want to raise $500 million in three months, and you're way behind, stop trashing republicans. do it for a week and see what happens. >> chuck todd, interesting morning. thanks very much. >> yes, it is. you got it. evacuations are under way in parts of southeast texas this morning due to record flooding there. even more rain is on its way. rescuers made their way through deserted neighborhoods in fort bend county tuesday and found a dog chained to a house. the pup was struggling to keep its head above water. rescuers were able to free the dog and take it to higher ground. take a look at this dramatic video of a jeep being swept away by floodwaters. thankfully, nobody was inside. already nine people in texas have lost their lives in the flooding. >> i want to talk about the continuing controversy over the shooting death of a gorilla at the cincinnati zoo after a 3-year-old boy fell into the animal's enclosure. police are confirming they're investigating the actions of the boy's parents.
as the incident raises questions about safety at zoos all across the country. nbc's joe fryer is in cincinnati. he has the latest. joe, good morning. >> good morning, matt. we now know the cincinnati police department is looking into what happened here, but that investigation will not focus on safety or operations here at the zoo. >> reporter: these tense moments captured on video have captivated the world. cincinnati investigators are concerned with what happened right before a 3-year-old boy fell into the gorilla enclosure. police say their review is only regarding the actions of the parents/family that led up to the incident. however, the zoo is the focus of a complaint filed with the usda by animal rights activists. >> what happened this last weekend made it very clear that the physical barriers at the cincinnati zoo are not adequate. >> reporter: the eyewitness who shot the video said the little boy seemed curious about the gorilla pen.
>> the little boy himself had been talking about wanting to go in, go in, get in the water. >> reporter: zoo officials say it appears the boy climbed over a barrier that's a little more than three feet high, making his way through bushes before falling 15 feet into the mote with harambe. >> mommy loves you. >> reporter: at times, the 420-pound silverback gorilla dragged the child around the enclosure before the zoo decided to shoot harambe. a controversial decision supported by some of the country's top experts. >> i believe in my heart that the zoo had found itself at the point of no return. >> reporter: what happened will likely prompt many zoos to review their barriers. the miami zoo was already installing higher fences and has other layers of protection, including thorny hedges. >> so if you managed to climb in here and you can stand the thorn pricks going to the other side, we have a ledge with an electric wire that's a second line of defense.
>> reporter: much of the outrage is directed at the boy's mother. on social media, give me ten children and i can guarantee none end up in a gorilla enclosure. the tragedy is bringing back memories of another incident 30 years ago in the uk. a gorilla protected a boy who was knocked unconscious after falling into the enclosure. but in this case, the child was rescued without harming the animal. this morning, the family of the boy here in cincinnati released a new statement saying the boy had a checkup with his doctor and is still doing well. the family does not want to accept any donations from the public. instead saying gifts should be made to the zoo in the name of the gorilla. matt and savannah. >> thank you very much. frightening moments for passengers on a united flight from newark to houston on tuesday. panels came loose. this video was shot by a passenger. this happened after the plane bounced when touching down in newark. the pilot cancelled the landing and took off again. the plane circled the airport
for about 30 minutes before finally landing again. fortunately, nobody was hurt. we have an important recall to tell you about this morning. general mills is recalling 10 million pounds of its flour, over a possible link to an e. coli outbreak. the recall is for several varieties of gold medal and signature kitchen flour sold at safeway, albertson's and other supermarkets. state and federal health officials say flour seems to be the common link between 38 illnesses in some 28 states. general mills says e. coli has not been found in any of its flour products but it's recalling them out of an abundance of caution. let's turn to al. we showed the video out of texas. unfortunately, they're under the gun again. >> we'll going to see more scenes like this, unfortunately. you can see right now, not too bad. heavier showers and thunderstorms in southern texas. we are going to be looking at 15 million people under flash flood watch through the evening hours. scattered storms coming across saturated ground.
this is a slow-moving front. the risk of flash flooding continues today, moves on into thursday. the risk increases as we get tons of gulf moisture. the atmosphere is juiced up right now. then what happens, this front just lays there. the risk for flash flooding continues into the weekend. look at the rainfall amounts we're talking about. generally, two to three inches. five inches, not unusual. parts of south central texas may see, get this, 10 to 15 inches of rain. we are going to be talking about possibly catastrophic flooding going into the weekend. that's what's going on. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. ic transformation without the need for fillers. your concert tee might show your age... your skin never will. olay regenerist,

the zika virus. record-high flooding has parts of the southeast and texas underwater, as the region braces for more rain. several rivers in the lone star state have crested at historic levels, forcing a lot of residents from their homes. tuesday, the weather-related death toll in texas climbed to nine. and we turn now to hollywood and the split dominating headlines around the world. the divorce of johnny depp and amber heard, getting uglier as we hear from heard's attorney about new allegations of abuse. natalie is following this story. >> there are a lot of allegations out there, different reports out there. here is what we know. last monday, depp's wife, amber heard, filed for divorce. on friday, she was granted a temporary restraining order against him, claiming spousal abuse. for a case heard says she wants to keep out of the media, that has now all changed. >> reporter: they were the picture perfect hollywood power couple. smiling for the cameras as glamorous red carpet events
around the globe. now, allegations suggest their marriage may have been different from their public image. heard's legal team issuing a statement tuesday saying, in part, we took the high road. unfortunately, johnny's team immediately went to the press and began viciously attacking amber's character. her team says these attacks come after allegations she suffered constant verbal and physical abuse by johnny depp over the course of their 15-month marriage. this past friday, heard was granted a temporary restraining order against depp. >> issuing a restrainer order. >> reporter: police responded to a domestic incident call at depp's los angeles home may 21st, but officers found no evidence of a crime and no charges were filed. amber did not provide a statement to the lapd in an attempt to protect her privacy and johnny's career. >> nine times out of ten, the domestic violence victims i've represented will protect the
perpetrator over and over again. >> reporter: heard says she is extremely afraid of johnny. describing the may 21st incident where he grabbed the cell phone, wound up his arm like a baseball pitcher, and threw the cell phone at me with great force. pictures of heard with a black eye were also filed with court documents. yet support on depp's behalf has been vigorous. vanessa parody, mother of his children, stated in a letter to tmz, in all the years i've known johnny, he's never been abusive for me and this looks nothing like the man i lived with for 14 wonderful years. in court documents, depp's lawyers claim amber is attempting to secure a financial resolution by alleging abuse. but the battle inside the courtroom may not be the most important. >> there are two big battles
going on here. one in the courtroom and one in the court of public opinion. for johnny depp, the court of public opinion is probably more important to him. he has a multimillion dollar reputation to maintain. >> reporter: and we reached out to johnny depp through his lawyers and publicist. we got no response. according to court documents, depp is overseas until june 7th. >> natalie, thank you. it is a first today. >> june 1st. >> yeah. >> also? >> first day of hurricane season. also, the first day of the meteorological summer. actual calendar summer begins june 20th this year, but we've got the remnants of bonnie. will not go away. still spinning out there along the north carolina coast. it is going to probably dump maybe another one to two inches of rain before it's all over, causing rip current problems. we're going to be continuing to watch this. now, here we go as far as the hurricane season. noaa has put out its hurricane outlook for 2016. 30-year average, 12 named storms. this year, looking at 10 to 16.

you can use one of these, which refills and then fold it up. >> you can pack it right there in the suitcase. >> or these bottles. they're bulkier but keep water cold for 12 hours. >> what do we have here? >> should i eat this or what? >> i wouldn't. they contain natural soap. when you have dirty clothes, you can use these to wash in the basin of the hotel room instead of sending your laundry out. >> easy to carry. >> don't eat them. >> i'm just hungry. it's 8:45 in the morning. great ideas. up next, katie lee, glad i'm hungry. she'll introduce us to refreshing flavors to welcome summer and the entertainment that goes with it. matt is going in for the tacos. this is "today" on nbc. >> thank you.
>> yes. >> nice to see you. >> you, too. >> i read about the show. you travel to the best beaches in this part of the world and pull recipes from each of these. >> it was a tough job. >> serious? >> especially because it was filmed in the winter. i went around eating, having great food and hanging out at the beach. >> this is a scam. it works for us because the recipe you're making today was inspired by the show. >> it is. i went to mexico on the show, and these are grilled pork tenderloin tacos with pineapple cucumber salsa and lime. >> nothing complicated. anything that jumps out as unusual? >> super simple. it's an easy recipe. pork tenderloin is lean, almost as lean as boneless, skinless chicken breast. it needs to marinade to give it a lot of flavor. >> this is a step you don't want people to skip. >> you have to marinade. in the blender, i have honey. kacanola oil and lime juice. matt, add the cilantro. >> okay. do we have our guys down stairs?
>> yeah. >> are you eating? >> mm-hmm. >> unbelievable. >> margarita is real strong. >> heavy hand. >> we're going to get to the great taco shell debate in a second. go ahead. >> jalapeno. if you want this really spicy -- >> i can smell those. >> -- put in the seeds and the membranes. if not, leave it out. chili powder. put the top on the blnd ender. >> got it. >> i like to blend up the marinade because it gets evenly distributed and into the meat. let it puree like this. put it into a sealable bag. two pork tenderloins, a pound each. marinades up to four hours. don't do it longer because the lime juice breaks down the meat and you'll lose the texture. >> grill it on top of the pork in a second. talk to me about the toppings. >> i have pineapple. you can substitute peach or
apricot. why don't you stir that for me? cucumber has a high water content and adds a lot of crunch. if it is hot outside, a food like that will help cool you off. >> i saw the sour cream over on the ingredient table there. what is the reason for that? >> it is a lime sour cream, so just sour cream and lime juice. i think the with tacos, you have to have sour cream. i love sour cream. i put it in a squeeze bottle. easy to squeeze on the tacos. >> forget the margaritas for a second. >> i can't. i'm drunk. >> i give you a lot of alcohol so you'll like the tacos. >> really good. >> we love the tacos. >> i love the salsa, pineapple and cucumber. >> it's a soft taco. >> but it's been grilled a bit, right? >> they've hijacked the segment here. >> sorry. >> take it out of the
refrigerator a half hour before you grill it. if the meat is room temperature, you'll get a better sear. salt and pepper it. do the grill really hot and fast to get a sear on it. move it to indirect heat, let it rest for ten minutes before you slice it up. >> now the debate over hard shell or soft shells. what do you prefer? >> you like hard, right? >> i like the crunch factor. >> i'll take it anyway i can get it. i like hard or soft shells. pork tenderloin goes on your taco. why don't you make one? >> they're harder to make in the crunchy ones because you have to fit it in there. >> salsa. i like the shredded purple cabbage. gives crunch and color. >> guys downstairs, has anyone changed their opinion on the hard or soft smell debate? >> we have another thing going on here. >> you do not want to -- you don't want to know. >> margaritas talking already. >> thank you very much. >> i know you guys too well. >> as soon as it came out of
your mouth, you knew it. >> sometimes working with people for too long is not a good thing. >> you're blushing, matt. why are you blushing? >> serve with the margaritas. fresh lime. >> the nice, summer fruit. it's sweet. >> guys, congratulations, graduating from third grade. >> take a bite. let's see you eat it. come on. >> no. i'll say, katie lee, thank you. for these recipes and more, head to today.com/food. up next, summer is coming. we'll take you inside the game of drones making waves around the world. first, this is "today" on nbc. >> there he goes. our mission at clover is to create the best tasting, highest quality dairy products. clover has relationships with 27 different family farms. the environment is who clover is. without it, we're nothing.

asks what your morning jam is. first song on the phone, "midnight city," m83. this isn't the best part, but it's there. it builds. >> still not there. >> if you still with us through the end of the take. >> it has a famous hook we're not playing. otherwise, it would have been great. >> you can sing it. >> wow, would have been great. >> i can only do so much. i can give you the song. >> i don't know the hook. i want to know. >> i'll play it for you on the break. let's talk about the gorilla, man. crazy. still going on. everybody is talking about the incident at the cincinnati zoo. the 3-year-old boy fell into an encloe s encloe sur with a 420-pound gorilla, harambe, before zoo officials made the decision to shoot and kill the 17-year-old gorilla. the police department is investigating what happened before the boy fell. the review is of the parents and the family that led up to the incident. the zoo is the focus of the complaint filed by the usda
animal activists. they'll look at the enclosure and everything surrounding that. the boys family issued a new statement, noting the child is doing well. saying, we're presappreciative the expressions of concern and support that have been sent to us. some have offered money to the family, which we do not want and will not accept. if anyone wishes to make a gift, we recommend a donation to the cincinnati zoo in harambe's name. the headline is that the police are looking into the family. if you ask any legal expert, it'll be a difficult charge to bring about, child endangerment. it typically means leaving a kid alone for hours on end in a house or somewhere. this was a matter of seconds or a minute. >> the reaction online, the hating is beyond the pail. it is stunning, the vitriol that people can spew without knowing facts. without knowing what exactly happened. >> right. >> which is probably standard operating procedure.
that's why the police are probably looking into it. but it's just unbelievable. >> it's so cruel. especially when you have experts on, and these are jack hanna. doesn't get bigger. he says, this was necessary, and he made the point on msnbc again, if the child had been killed, people would -- but it is the level of nastiness. later on today, on my msnbc show, i'm speaking with a woman who started a change.org petition to have the woman charged. i'm curious, you know, we don't know anything. i want to see the police report and see what happened from the mother's point of view. we only know dribs and drabs. now they're under investigation. i believe it's a formality. >> sure. >> what is clear, we brought this up yesterday, is you know, this is an enclosure that has a 14-foot mote. it has a 3-foot tall fence. if you ask the average person, a child, a 3-year-old child, can
easily crawl over a 3-foot fence, then get over the foliage. >> those are prickly bushes. >> thankfully, the child didn't get hurt by that fall alone. then what happened with the gorilla is just horrible. horrifying. thankfully, the child is okay. i do think, they have to look at that enclosure and say, is it tall enough, high enough? what do we need to do to make this -- >> yesterday it was said, 36 years, this has never happened. i said, well, it only takes one. in the '70s, our parents put us in the back of the car with no seat belt. >> or the front. >> i rode in a pickup on the wheel, thinking it was the best spot. my uncle clearly didn't care if i made it to age 10. you know after a bad incident, sometimes there is a correction curve. just because it's never happened doesn't mean it shouldn't be
examined. >> right. >> as we've said for two days, it is sickening that harambe had to die. it makes you sick that that happened. >> horrible. >> but everyone who is tweeting and is furious at the parents, who do you think is more upset by this than the people who cared for harambe, who lived with him all these years? that is the most agonizing thing they could have had to do. they made the decision it was what had to be done. >> dragging the child. some were saying it looked like he was trying to protect the child. we don't know. the child is being taken through the water. you have to do what is best to save the child. >> it'll continue. we'll continue to talk about this for a while. another thing people are talking about, on a lighter note, sugar land, texas, outside of city hall. >> sugar land. with a southern accent. not correcting your pronunciation, sweetening you up a bit. >> sugar land. >> get your texas on. >> sugar land. in sugar land, there is a new statue. two girls snapping a selfie.
>> oh. >> first of all, it's a piece of art. people are criticizing this new piece of art that was not paid for by government funds. >> right. >> why are they criticizing it? >> they found it was government funds. >> waste of money. but it wasn't spent by the government. it was a private donation. one of ten statues to show common activities that go on in the public plaza. of course, people, again, online start tweeting negative stuff about it. some folks are out there taking selfies with the statue. >> it starts a conversation, that's what art is about, right? it's not only started a conversation, but it's started other people taking selfies with the selfie takers. >> enjoying themselves in a public place. >> my favorite al roker line. just don't go there. >> stop whining. >> or go and take a selfie. >> you don't like it, don't go. >> with all these internet outrage machine stories, i'd
love to know the raw number of people that are actually mad. is it seven? is it eight? >> and are the numbers real? the anonymous egg with three followers -- and they may be your friend. >> sure. >> but it's like they tag you. when people write us and tag you in the insult, i go, why do you want me to see that? you can tell your friends you don't like me. i'm cool with that. you're tagging me for a reason. i'm not quite sure what you want me to do about it. >> it's sugar land. >> sugar land. >> if i did that, people would say i'm making fun of texas. >> you get a reprieve. >> i get a pass? >> statue on your hip like me. >> is that a brand? >> it is a brand. >> it's a whole different thing. >> this is the tattoo i have. one day, i may show it. maybe the day i get ready to quit. it's the size of this mug.
>> the people playing volleyball with you, they saw it. >> willie saw it. >> i have? >> how has willie seen it? >> and moving on. >> it took a turn. >> i am going to save this conversation and move on to the -- >> it was because -- >> it's not on a bad side. it's on a public display side. >> sugar land. butter would melt in her mouth. it's a southern saying. speaking of no-noes and what not to do at work -- >> yeah. there we go. >> show tattoos. >> maybe that's what not to do. let take a look at our desks. shall we? see if you can guess whose is who. >> they look similar. >> not a great look. >> the one with the 18 little

>> not anymore. >> people do leave fish. she says it wasn't fish. i don't know because after three days, everything smells like fish. >> there is a question about whose desk was whose. let's take a look. up here -- >> there's one. >> that's my desk. kung fu panda and mr. t. over here, i'm guessing this must be natalie's desk. >> yeah. gro >> grooming items and things like that. this has to be tamron's desk, with all the makeup and -- >> what do you mean all the makeup? >> right there. hello. that's certainly not willie's desk. >> willie wears brown makeup. >> there's willie's desk, the primo desk. neat and clean. >> you know i am. i keep everything shuffled. >> very impressive.
