7:03 am
leave from his pundit from channel new york one as the new york daily news says it will no longer publish his opinion columns. the news coming hours after huma abedin announced her split with weiner saying after long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, i have made the decision to separate from my husband. adding the two remain devoted to doing what is best for our son. it follows a new york post report that weiner sent messages to a woman online including a picture of weiner in his underwear laying instead to a toddler who the post says is his son. weiner saying he and the woman have been friends for some time insisting their conversations were always appropriate deleting his twitter account on monday. donald trump trying to capitalize on the news saying in a statement huma is making a very wise decision. i know anthony weiner well and she'll be far better off without him. trump also suggesting without
7:04 am
any evidence that weiner could have had access to classified information from his wife. clinton's campaign firing back at trump. we're not dignifying that with a response. the saga began in 2011 when a text sing scandal cost weiner his house seat. >> it is a shame. >> two years later his comeback bid for new york city mayor was derailed by more revelations of inappropriate behavior online as abedin stood by her husband. >> it took a lot of work and a whole lot of therapy to get to a place where i could forgive anthony. >> reporter: behind the scenes a documentary filmmaker captured her private pain. even as weiner told savannah he was a changed man. >> i think that with help of my wife, with help of professionals, i have got it behind me. >> reporter: now it's abedin's turn to move on. some child care expert and one
7:05 am
state senator are calling on authorities to investigate weiner for possible negligent. one democratic source tells me that he was with abedin in the hamptons over the weekend and returned here to manhattan once the story broke. abedin continues in the hamptons where hillary clinton is on that fund-raising swing. savannah, matt? >> kristen welker, thank you. nbc's andrea mitchell joins us now with more on the fallout. andrea, how did this play out behind the scenes? >> behind the scenes what really changed everything despite their long troubled marriage and that friends say this was coming for a long time, but what really changed everything of course was the picture of the child in this latest episode for the child to be included in an inappropriate message on twitter, online, to this woman, really broke it. yes, he was in the hamptons and they were trying to continue with this facade of a marriage. there was deep love for the child.
7:06 am
she was devoted until the second episode and documentary which was devastating. the fact that he was taking care of their toddler while she was out on the campaign trail. it worked for them for now. they were hoping to get through the campaign and election. but then it became untenable. >> deeply personal situation. it's a family situation. but she is also a top aide to hillary clinton. is there a political fallout that we can expect from this as well? >> of course there is. there are so many tensions involved. she is the most powerful figure political figure and personal figure in hillary clinton's circle. and there are people who fear her. there are people who respect and adore her. the inner circle certainly. there are criticisms this led to hillary clinton not getting other insights, not having press on the plane, not having press conferences they say those interviews are more controlled situations and the fact she needs to expand her circle and this coming just as they're
7:07 am
preparing for those debates. this is a problem. it resurrects all of those old conversations that some voters might be having especially swing voters. the those moms in suburbia. about hillary clinton's own choices 20 years ago. it is not a good situation. there's a lot of love and affection from huma. also a concern about the campaign. >> andrea mitchell, thank you very much. let's stay on politics and turn now to the mounting backlash against a top trump surrogate to tweeted a cartoon of hillary clinton in black face. he's now apologizing for that post but standing by his criticism of clinton and her outreach to black voters. nbc's hallie jackson joins us with this part of the story. good morning, hallie. >> reporter: look at the timing of all of this. it's as donald trump is trying to deliver more of a message to african-american voters. he only has about 1% support from that group right now according to our latest poll. this morning we're taking a closer look at the controversy
7:08 am
surrounding one of his top surrogates but first a warning about that tweeted cartoon. viewers may find it offensive. working fast to put out a firestorm, an apology from a top trump surrogate, pastor mark burns. >> the tweet was not designed to anger or stir up the pot like it did. >> reporter: that tweet showing hillary clinton in black face now deleted burns saying he's sorry. live on periscope. >> the campaign does not make me do this. >> reporter: burns who leads the trump campaign's outreach to the african-american community. defending his tweet in a fiery interview with kristen welker. >> didn't you do the opposite of what donald trump says he's trying to do? >> the picture is designed to draw attention to the very fact that hillary clinton do pander to black people. she do pander. policies are not good for african-americans. >> burns a frequent presence at
7:09 am
trump rallies where lately the gop nominee has been aiming his message at black voters. >> what the hell do you have to lose? >> but it's a message delivered in front of mostly white audiences. that will change this weekend when trump is set to visit detroit with dr. ben carson and speak at a predominantly black church. 2012 gop contender herman cain campaigning with mike pence. >> we don't have a race relations issue in america. they do. >> reporter: and this morning we say arguing for human rights should speak for itself. and this morning we have a look at our nbc news/surveymonkey online tracking poll numbers showing clinton's lead over trump has narrowed from eight points down to six in just the last week. and among registered independents who don't lean
7:10 am
toward either party, trump is making inroads there too cutting clinton's lead from 12 points to 4. savannah? >> hallie jackson, thank you. let's turn to trouble brewing off the east coast. florida and the carolinas facing the threat of really heavy rains and heavy winds. dylan is keeping an eye on it all in for al this morning. what's going on? >> the tropics got extremely busy and we're keeping an eye on the two tropical depressions. not so much the category 2 hurricane gaston. that's over the water and will pull away. it's these two storms. tropical depression number eight and tropical depression number nine are the ones likely to become tropical systems later on today. let's first focus on nine. already produced more than a foot of rainfall across parts of cuba. it's starting to bring some pockets of heavier rain through florida. we will see this most likely developed into a tropical storm today and takes a turn producing several inches of rain. some areas near tampa could pick up 10 to 15 inches of rain and that could lead to some flash flooding.
7:11 am
we also have tropical storm warnings across the outer banks of north carolina. this could become tropical storm ian at some point and it is looking like it should produce rough surf as it approaches cape hatteras. we could see one to three inches of rain and gusty winds. it's that storm down near florida that's going to bring us our biggest flooding threat. >> thank you very much. the fbi is warning state officials this morning to bush boost election security. u.s. intelligence officials are telling nbc news that russian hackers were behind two recent attempts to breach state voter registration systems and in one instance data from 200,000 voter records was stolen in illinois. in arizona, the attempt was unsuccessful. the breaches are fueling concerns that the russian government may be trying to interfere with the u.s. presidential election. to a dramatic rescue caught on camera. several motorists jump into action to save a woman from a car fully engulfed in flames.
7:12 am
a dash camera captured a pileup on a highway in upstate new york. you can see a tractor-trailer plow into several vehicles. a white car on the left of your screen bursts into flames. several people rush over to try to pull the door open and free the driver. others attempt to put that fire out. eventually they break the passenger side window and pull the woman to safety. incredibly, she suffered only minor cuts and bruises. an investigation into the crash is now under way. some high drama in rhode island yesterday after a bucket truck overturned on a bridge leaving two workers dangling over the river below. look at that. the workers were in the bucket inspecting the bridge's underside when the truck fell over on its side. rescuers brought in another bucket truck and pulled workers to safety. there were no reports of any injuries and the cause of that accident is now under investigation. a public firestorm over the skyrocketing price of epipens
7:13 am
has led to a surprise announcement from the pharmaceutical company. mylan saying they will produce a generic version for half the price. that is three times the cost from years ago. we have nbc's tom costello in washington with more on this. >> this may be both a pr move and financial move as mylan pharmaceuticals found itself in the bull's-eye of controversy over what many believe is excessive company drug pricing over its epipen. mylan pharmaceuticals say it will offer a generic version. of the epi-pen rather than $600, $300 for the generic. a 50% discount but not the common 90% discount with generics. >> this is a convoluted mechanism. mylan has been price gouging for years.
7:14 am
>> the evidence, two moms in two different countries. in north carolina, tracy bush keeps three epipens on hand for her son. >> two years ago my son had a reaction to watermelon. it was seconds that his throat started to close up. >> the price $600 each. meanwhile in canada, this child has life threatening allergies. >> all dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, wheat and chicken. >> his family keeps six epipens on hand. the price at the pharmacy, $100 each. >> to me it doesn't make any sense for such a difference in price. >> it's one of those things that make me very happy to be canadian. >> reporter: why the price different? >> they negotiate prices because there are drug plans so they buy in bulk and governments negotiate prices so they try to bring prices down. >> reporter: the drug itself, epinephrin has been around for years and cost just $3. the plastic auto injector is also cheap.
7:15 am
last week mylan ceo heather bresch blamed it on middle man. who demand bigger and bigger cuts. >> our health care is in a crisis. no different than the mortgage financial crisis in 2007. this bubble is going to burst. >> mylan makes a billion dollars a year on epipens. this morning it says generic could be on the market in a coming months, but consumers and advocates say many anxious parents may avoid the generic and stay with the expensive brand that they trust. tributes are pouring in for gene wilder. the comedic actor that invited us into his world of pure imagination as willy wonka and so many other iconic characters. as joe fryer explains, everybody feels why they feel they snagged the golden ticket. >> if the good lord intended us to walk, he wouldn't have invented roller skates.
7:16 am
>> reporter: if they handed out college credit for courses, they would study gene wilder. from "blazing saddles" -- >> steady as a rock. >> reporter: to "young frankenstein" to "the producers." he did his best work with mel brooks writing on twitter he blessed every film we did with his magic and he blessed me with his friendship. that magic extended to wilder's chemistry with the late richard pryor. >> i loved him. i still love him. we were very close. >> reporter: one of his off camera loves, wife gilda radner. after she died from ovarian cancer. he started a group called gilda's club. he'll be remembered most for playing willy wonka. we sat down with the cast all grown up.
7:17 am
>> five kids clamoring all over you wanting his attention. it was never any please, mr. wilder. we must have been pretty tiresome. >> reporter: as jim carrey said, if there is a heaven, gene wilder got it. to "today," joe fryer, nbc news, los angeles. >> gene wilder's nephew said the following in a statement. the decision to wait until this time to disclose his condition, alzheimer's disease was not vanity but that children that would smile or call out to him there is willy wonka won't have to be exposed to an adult referencing illness or trouble and causing delight to travel. >> do you have a favorite movie? >> "willy wonka." where he says happily ever after.
7:18 am
what about you? >> "blazing saddles." "young frankenstein." i thought he was amazing. he'll be missed. dylan is back with the rest of the forecast. >> we talked about the tropical systems but also some flash floods possible through parts of texas and up through the plains and midwest today. there's a cold front moving in. it could trigger some storms. they don't look severe but they could produce up to one to three inches of rain in a short period of time. there's a look at the weather across the country. your local forecast is coming up in just 30 seconds.

7:30 on a tuesday morning. the 30th day of august, 2016. sun shining down on a nice crowd out on our plaza. we'll get outside in about half an hour and say hi to them. first, let's look at the headlines this morning. anthony weiner has lost two jobs and hillary clinton's top aide, huma abedin has left him. donald trump wasted no time getting a dig at the hillary clinton campaign and hillary clinton questioning her judgment. two big storms are brewing in the atlantic. both could become tropical storms later today. one expected to intensify wednesday making landfall in florida on thursday and dumping
7:31 am
up to a foot of rain in some areas. the other could impact the carolina coast later this week. >> one of the best times of the year. the u.s. open kicked off in new york monday night with a performance from rock 'n' roll hall of famer fill collins and alison keys winning at 1:49 a.m. in the coming days here, novak djokovic and serena williams looking to dominate after disappointing showing at the olympics. when owen labrie went on trial for rape last year, the case attracted attention nationwide. by law, his accuser was shrouded in anonymity even while testifying. but today for the first time she's revealing her name and face and telling her story for the first time publicly. up until now this is how chessy
7:32 am
prout was known. a voice disguised in court. >> i felt like i was frozen. >> this is the first time you've come out and said publicly what happened. >> yes. >> why did you want to do that? >> well, it's been two years now since the whole ordeal, and i feel ready to stand up and own what happened to me. i'm going to make sure that other girls, other boys, know that they can own it too and they don't have to be ashamed either. >> the story starts on the grounds of this beautiful campus in new hampshire. a school where her father, alex, had graduated and her older sister. it was just before graduation when she accepted a date with popular senior owen labrie. a date that she says went horribly wrong and ended with
7:33 am
charges of rape and a criminal trial ensued. she faced the defendant and testified for three days on the stand. >> although it was scary and although it was pretty difficult, i wouldn't be where i am today without having been able to speak up for myself during that time. >> what was it like to go through the court process? >> we had been prepared to just receive an apology. we had been prepared to just move forward with our lives and let them move forward with their lives. in the pursuit of justice, i would have done anything. >> one of the things that came out in the trial was that there were messages afterwards and they were friendly messages. >> that brings me to the effects of the crime itself, too, which not a lot of people talk about. a question that i was asked on the stand is, well, why were you so hazy during that period. i looked at the defense attorney
7:34 am
in disbelief and said i was raped. i was just trying to go smoothly and not cause any waves. >> on one hand he was convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault, which means the jury believed that a sexual assault took place. on the other hand, there was a more serious charge that he was not convicted of. how did you feel about the verdict in this case? >> well, they said that they didn't believe that he did it knowingly. that frustrated me a lot. he definitely did do it knowingly. the fact that he was still able to pool the wool over a group of people's eyes bothered me a lot and just disgusted me in some way. >> what do you hope happens to him now? do you ever think about that? >> i don't. i hope he learns. i hope he gets help. that's all i can hope for in any
7:35 am
sort of process like this. if he doesn't learn, he'll do it to another woman. >> she was adamant about returning to st. paul school. what happened when you went back to school. >> everybody knew. none of my old friends that were boys would talk to me. they didn't even look me in the eyes. they were uncomfortable or what. i don't know. and nobody was talking about the issue in itself. they weren't trying to prevent it from happening to anyone else. >> chessy eventually left st. paul's and they filed a civil suit against the school saying it failed to meet its most basic obligation to protect children entrusted to its care. we talked with chessy's family as well. the school obviously denies the allegation in the lawsuit. some will say, oh, a lawsuit. is the family trying to get money. what's the real motive here? why not just let it go? >> we're talking about children.
7:36 am
we kneel an obligation that this not happen to any future kids at the school. >> you think the campus would say we need to talk about what's happened. we didn't see that happening. and if ever there was a family to work with, it would have been our family. we loved the school. my husband had a great experience there. our oldest daughter had a great experience there. unfortunately it seems like the school's reputation became more important rather than supporting our daughter. >> st. paul says we catego categorically deny there ever existed at the school a culture of tradition of sexual assault. you have an idea of how you can take something terrible that happened to you and turn it into
7:37 am
something good for others. what are you hoping to accomplish? >> we have been talking a lot about a woman's bill of rights. i want other people's input. i want other people to feel empowered and just strong enough to be able to say i have the right to my body. i have the right to say no. and i wanted to bring this initiative that would be a hashtag i have the right too and have people contribute to it. >> your family has been right there with you all along and a lot of people don't have that. i can only imagine how helpful that's been. >> somebody has got my back. somebody is going to believe me. somebody is going to help me. even when i get panic attacks and i lock myself in my closet because i don't want my little sister to see me like that. she comes into my room sometimes and she'll come into my closet
7:38 am
when i'm rocking on the floor and punching my legs trying to get myself calmed down, and she'll try to give me the biggest hug and say, chessy, you're okay. chessy, you're okay. and it just -- i can't imagine how scary it is for other people to have to do this alone and i don't want anybody else to be alone anymore. i don't. >> to find out more about chessy prout's new campaign for survivors and her hashtag i have the right too go to today.com. you'll find the full response from st. paul's school including a list of changes the school has made since this happened. she is a very determined young woman. >> she's in another state and another school and applying to college this fall. >> amazing interview. thank you very much. let's get a check of the weather now. dylan is in for al.
7:39 am

and while it isn't for weight loss, victoza® may help you lose some weight. non-insulin victoza® comes in a pen and is taken once a day. (announcer) victoza® is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and is not for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you get a lump or swelling in your neck or if you develop any allergic symptoms including itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. serious side effects may happen, including pancreatitis. so, stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area. tell your doctor your medical history. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. now's the time for a better moment of proof.
