american swimmers involved in that gas station incident at the olympics. ryan lochte reportedly facing as long as ten months out of the water. why some critics say even that would be too light. and vanishing act. new video emerges showing a suspect in las vegas breaking free from his handcuffs and then fleeing through the ceiling. that tricky escape and how police caught up with him "today," thursday, september 8th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a thursday morning. do anything interesting last night? >> it was a nail biter. i'll tell you that. serena williams pulled it out in the end. it was really, really good. >> a lot of people were watching something else. in fact, this commander in chief forum on nbc last night. the election now just 61 days away.
7:02 am
we want to get to the state of the race today. with the forrum behind her, hillary clinton returns to the campaign trail with a rally this afternoon in north carolina and tim kaine was there on tuesday. she'll then head to missouri where the latest poll shows her trailing there by ten points. as for donald trump, he heads back to cleveland for the first time since the republican national convention. this will be his seventh visit to ohio since becoming his party's nominee. so according to a recent poll, the race in that key battleground state is extremely close. trump leading by just three points. >> so we have a lot to get to this morning. in a moment we're going to talk to two generals who were advisers to the clinton and trump campaigns respectively. let's start out our team coverage with national correspondent peter alexander. hey, peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. this election now exactly two months away believe it or not. last night donald trump despite having no political or military
7:03 am
experience insisted that he's 100% ready to handle this country's national security issues. last night he spoke almost exclusively in generalities and hillary clinton was back on the defensive peppered with more tough questions about her judgment. the first showdown on a single stage. clinton and trump going back to back and toe to toe. the former secretary of state appearing first followed by the real estate mogul. the republican nominee blasting many of the nation's military leaders. >> i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble. they have been reduced to a point where it's embarrassing for our country. >> reporter: trump offering no new specifics about his strategy for defeating isis. >> when i do come up with a plan that i like and that perhaps agrees with mine or maybe doesn't. i may love what the generals come back with. >> you have your own plan? >> i have a plan. >> reporter: clinton vowing
7:04 am
under her leadership the u.s. will defeat isis making a major campaign promise. >> we are not putting ground troops into iraq ever again and we're not putting ground troops into syria. >> reporter: while clinton admitted her vote for the iraq war was a mistake, trump falsely presented his position on the war before the invasion. >> i was against the war in iraq and said it would totally destabilize the middle east, which it has. >> reporter: here he was with howard stern in 2002. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. you know, i wish the first time it was done correctly. >> reporter: wednesday night trump proposing an alternate solution for iraq. >> we're going to get out, take the oil. if we would have taken the oil, you wouldn't have isis. isis formed with the power and wealth of that oil. >> reporter: clinton without mentioning her rival by name trying to offer a clear contrast on what makes her better
7:05 am
qualified to be commander in chief. >> steadiness. an absolute rock steadiness and mixed with strength to be able to make the hard decisions. >> reporter: meanwhile, trump praising russia's vladimir putin while attacking president obama. >> the man has very strong control over the country. it's a different system. i don't happen to like the system but certainly in that system he's been a leader far more than our president has been a leader. >> reporter: and clinton again on defense over her use of a private e-mail server. >> as i said repeatedly, it was a mistake to have a personal server. i certainly would not do it again. i make no excuses for it. >> reporter: the former secretary of state pushing back against questions about her handling of classified information. >> i did exactly what i should have done and i take it very seriously. always have. always will. >> reporter: and while clinton defended her time at the state department, trump defended this tweet from 2013 about the number of unreported sexual assaults in the military. writing at the time what do these geniuses expect when they
7:06 am
put men and women together? >> it's a correct tweet. many people think that's absolutely correct. >> reporter: bottom line, many americans widely believe that these are two deeply flawed candidates. two of the most unpopular political presidential nominees in modern history. they were shaky at times last night, living plenty of room for improvement. perhaps the silver lining, this was just the scrimmage before what's certain to be a political superbowl. that first debate just 18 days away. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. as we said, clinton campaigns in north carolina and missouri today. just moments ago, before taking off from white plains, new york, she held a news conference in front of her plane on the tarmac. nbc's kristen welker has more on what she had to say. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. one of the headlines coming out of that press conference, secretary clinton responding to some of the criticism she got for comments she made at our commander in chief forrum last night, specifically the fact
7:07 am
that she said she's not going to put any more troops on the ground in order to fight isis. she was pressed on that just moments ago. take a listen to what she had to say. >> i think putting a big contingent of american ground troops on the ground in iraq and syria would not be in the best interest in the fight against isis and other terrorist groups. in fact, i think it would fulfill one of their dearest wishes which is to drag the united states back into a ground war in that region. >> reporter: clinton also slammed donald trump for having kind words for vladimir putin at our forrum. take a listen. >> he praised russia's strong man vladimir putin. even taking the astonishing step of suggesting that he prefers the russian president to our american president. now, that is not just
7:08 am
unpatriotic and insulting to the people of our country as well as to our commander in chief, it is scary. because it suggests he will let putin do whatever putin wants to do. >> reporter: now, amid news that our new poll shows donald trump beating secretary clinton among military families, clinton and her campaign putting a real focus on national security this week. today she also announced that tomorrow she is going to convene a bipartisan meeting with national security experts, including michael churchohh and janet that pal tan know. broader national polls show this race is getting tighter. matt, savannah, back to you. >> kristen thanks very much. we have a couple military experts this morning. we'll start with lieutenant general michael flynn, who led the defense intelligence agency.
7:09 am
he now serves as an adviser to donald trump. good morning. good to have you here. >> thanks for having me back. >> listen to what was said last night, lot of people are shocked by the fact that donald trump seemed to have praise for vladimir putin while seeming to denigrate american generals saying they have been reduced to rubble in his words. >> yeah. >> how do you explain that. >> first of all, the format was great. the questions that came out of the audience were great. this business about this general being reduced to rubble, donald trump has enormous respect for our military and enormous respect for our military leadership. >> it didn't sound like it. >> what's happened is our leadership in the military, in the armed forces right now, there's a lot of frustration because of the policies that we are following and strategy that we're following particularly against isis but also against what we're doing out in the south china sea, what we're doing in korea and what we're doing in eastern europe. i know there's a lot of frustration out there. donald trump has enormous respect for our military, military leadership and our
7:10 am
intelligence professions as well. >> i'm glad you brought up intelligence. what caught my attention is he talked about two intelligence briefings he's now received. you were involved in both of them. you were there. and he went off on this thing saying in some way the briefers either through something they said or body language led them to believe -- led donald trump to think that they did not think president obama was following their recommendations. you were there. did you see that? >> i sure did. >> in what way? >> in a very specific way. i'll tell you -- without getting into details of what we talked about, intelligence professionals brief the intelligence they see going on around the world. they do not make the policy decisions. so the intelligence that we received in the last two briefings were in stark contrast to the policy decisions that are being made. >> that's coming up with that deduction. in the briefing did they look and say something and then look
7:11 am
at him like this or this? >> intelligence professionals as they should would say those are policy decisions. donald trump in a very, very sophisticated way would ask tough questions and they would say that's not our job. those are policy decisions that the white house is making. we would say okay. we understand. stark contrast. >> you were with the defense intelligence agency. you know as well as anybody else what vladimir putin has been up to recently. >> sure. >> are you concerned at all about the way that donald trump talks about putin? he said last night if putin says great things about me, i'm going to say great things about him. that's not exactly the model of standing tough on the world stage against an adversary? >> we've become the best enemies in the world because we telegraph everything we're going to do and we become the worst friends. one of the things -- and he also mentioned this, matt, was that russia has a problem with isis. we have a problem with isis. russia is in the middle east whether we like it or not.
7:12 am
we probably could have prevented that had we made smarter decisions a couple years ago, but we did not. so what we have to do is we have to figure out how do we work together against some of these common enemies that we have? we have to do that. we have run out of a lot of options. and the decisions that were made pulling out of iraq in 2011 have led to this rise of this massive problem that we now call the islamic state. >> we could have another hour on it. lieutenant general michael flynn. thank you. >> great job last night. nbc did a superb job. >> thank you so much. we appreciate it. retired air force brigadier general john douglas supporting the clinton campaign joins us this morning. general, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> secretary clinton last night said no troops in syria. we're not sending anymore troops in there. we're not sending anymore troops in iraq. keeping in mind there are u.s. troops there. did she take something off the table that she shouldn't have taken off? >> i don't think so. she has a three-point plan on how to deal with the middle east. as we all know, this is a problem that's been going on for
7:13 am
a long, long time. it doesn't lend itself to simplistic 30-day solutions. >> as commander in chief, do you ever want to take an option off the table? >> i think you can look at that one way or the other. i don't think she meant to take an option off the table. i think she meant to say that her policy is she's not going to go in at the scale that bush and others have done in iraq. you know, one of the issues about secret plans and things like that are that if your enemy knows you're strong, if your enemy knows you're strong, the enemy knows you have a good plan, the enemy knows you have the resources, the enemy knows you're well led, that's deterrence. back when i worked on reagan staff as a young guy, we would rather deter the enemy so we don't get into these conflicts than fighting.
7:14 am
and i think that hillary understands that and she's laid out a detailed plan. the comments about our generals being reduced to rubble, our young generals today are as fine as they've ever been. when i see those young men and women especially the young women that have now taken stars, i'm proud of them. they're not rubble. and i don't appreciate that. >> on this issue of veterans and how they feel, they were the audience last night. that's who we were trying to address. 64% of them in our recent poll said they are not confident in hillary clinton's ability to lead. this is somebody who was a former secretary of state. she was on the armed service committee. the issue does not seem to be one of experience. how do you explain that? >> it is hard to explain. there's some work to do there for secretary clinton. you know, there's an old saying in world war ii, snafu. have you ever heard that?
7:15 am
>> familiar with it. >> that's how a lot of that feels. the guys down in the trenches don't know what's over the next hill. they don't know what's going to happen tomorrow morning. they don't know what is the enemy doing. they have to trust their leadership from their squad leaders all of the way up to whoever is president at the time and so from the perspective of just being there at that level, things often do look like they're screwed up and so that's just one of the things that leaders in the military have to deal with is to try to overcome that. >> interesting to get both of your perspectives. thank you very much this morning as well. >> thanks for having us. the president is wrapping up a week-long trip to asia this morning and weighing in on donald trump's comments at our forum last night. let's go to nbc's ron allen who has been traveling with the president. ron, good morning. >> reporter: it didn't take much for president obama to weigh in.
7:16 am
at the closing news conference, he was asked about those comments that donald trump made about our generals being reduced to rubble and about vladimir putin being a better leader than president obama. here's what the president had to say. >> i don't think the guy is qualified to be president of the united states. and every time he speaks, that opinion is confirmed. and i think the most important thing for the public and the press is to just listen to what he says and follow up and ask questions about what appear to be either contradictory, uninformed or outright wacky ideas. >> reporter: expect more of that in the next week when president heads to battleground philadelphia. first of campaign solo stops for hillary clinton. targeting the voters who put him over the top, voters he's trying to get excited for hillary
7:17 am
clinton. savannah? >> ron allen, thank you. now to a disturbing update in california. four oakland police officers have been fired over a scandal that involved a teenage prostitute. seven other officers will be suspended without pay for failing to report the misconduct. the woman said she slept with more than a dozen city police officers. some of those encounters, she said, took place when she was underage. the officers were disciplined for violating police department rules and a criminal investigation is now under way. police in chicago are searching for two suspects this morning after a 71-year-old man was shot during an attempted robbery. the incident was caught on camera. take a look. you can see two young men on bicycles ride past the man as he watering his lawn. short time later, the suspects come back and demanded the man's wallet. when he refused a suspect shot him in the abdomen. the 71 was taken to the hospital. he is now in fair condition.
7:18 am
no arrests have been made. back to that video we showed you at the top of our show, murder suspect, back in police custody after he escaped from an interrogation room in north las vegas. it happened last friday. alonzo perez was able to break free from his handcuffs by putting all of his body weight on the chain that connected the two cuffs. perez twisted the chain enough to make it snap and made his escape by climbing through a ceiling tile. once ounds, he stole an unoccupied truck that was left running in the parking lot. he was recaptured tuesday night. police chief said while cameras were rolling, nobody was watching the feed. from now on, somebody will be watching the video monitors at all times. >> not taking their eyes off it. al, what do you got in the weather? >> we're not taking our eyes off the weather monitors. we're looking out west. not a lot to see. few showers up around the puget sound in seattle. looking at activity making its way through montana, but for the
7:19 am
most part a fairly quiet day out west. few showers in billings, 75. vegas flirting with the century mark at 99. look how nice it will be in los angeles, 78 and sunshine. 89 in medford and eventually the clouds will part up in seattle, looking for a temperature of 69 degrees. rest of the country today we've got this frontal system that's pushing in and it will be firing up some strong storms, stretching all the way from ohio back down into the mid plains. some of these storms could cause anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of rain, so there could be some flash flooding. remnants of newton still hanging around through the southwest, though we'll see a few scattered showers there. little cooler in the northern plains with plenty of sunshine. the other big story, the heat. it's going to be hot and humid it's going to be hot and humid here in the mid-atlantic state, i'll have that goat cheese garden salad. that gentleman got the last one. sir, you give me that salad and i will pay for your movie and one snack box. can i keep the walnuts? sold. but i get to pick your movie. can i pick the genre? yes, but it has to be a comedy.
7:20 am
a little cash back on the side. with the blue cash everyday card from american express, you get cash back on purchases with no annual fee. throw. it's more than cash back. it's backed by the service and security of american express. good thursday morning. meteorologist anthony slaughter here. wake up to clouds in spots but otherwise seeing sunshine. the clouds early from about the golden gate bridge to our north bay and everywhere else we're looking at clear skies. you can see from the tri-valley to the south baying looking good right now. later on our highs will be warm. 89 degrees. not as hot as it was for the tri-valley yesterday. san francisco today, 9 degrees after seeing highs in the 80s. starm warm across the south bay. up to 88 degrees there. we are looking at temperatures cooling for the weekend into next week. weather. >> thanks very much, al. just ahead, banned from swimming. the suspensions expected today for ryan lochte and three other athletes over that incident at a rio gas station.

local news update for you in half an hour.
7:29 am
7:30 am
"today," thursday, september 8th, 2016. first let's take a look at headlines. the pentagon says a russian fighter jet flew within 10 feet of a surveillance plane over the black sea on wednesday and an official said that incident took place in international airspace and called it unsafe. russia's defense ministry says the american plane was intercepted after it twice approached russia's southern border. the 2016 paralympic games kicked off in rio de janeiro last night with a rousing opening ceremony. cyclist alison jones led the 289 member u.s. team into the stadium.
7:31 am
in all, more than 4,000 athletes from 160 countries are participating making it the largest paralympic games ever. and another big event last night. our exclusive commander in chief forum with presidential hopefuls donald trump and hillary clinton. clinton vowed if elected, the u.s. would not send more troops to the middle east while trump suggested the military leaders have been hurt by the current administration. >> i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble to the point where it's embarrassing for our country. >> we're not putting ground troops into iraq ever again and we're not putting ground troops into syria. we're going to defeat isis without committing american ground troops. >> clinton heads to north carolina and missouri today while trump holds campaign events in cleveland, ohio. let's turn to "today's" campaign moment. this one played out on twitter right after our commander in chief forum. republican party chairman reince
7:32 am
priebus said this about hillary clinton's performance. "she was angry and defensive the entire time. no smile and uncomfortable. upset that she was caught wrongly sending our secrets." hillary clinton's twitter account was quick to respond. actually, that's what taking the office of president seriously looks like. actually, that's what taking the office of president seriously looks like. >> changie ing subjects. that embarrassing gas station incident during the olympics. all four swimmers are expected to be suspended today by the united states olympic committee and usa swimming. willie is here with the latest on that. >> the usoc has not officially confirmed that suspension but usa swimming says something will be announced today. the scandal that rocked the rio games still impacting one of the biggest stars. >> medalist ryan lochte ignoring
7:33 am

"usa today" also reports lochte's suspension will be longer than the other three u.s. swimmers. >> a guy pulled out his gun. he cocked it. put it to my forehead. >> reporter: lochte told "today's" billy bush he was robbed at gunpoint. one week later he apologized in an interview with matt admitting he vandalized a sign at the rio gas station. >> i was very intoxicated. i have no idea why. it was immature. it was childish. >> reporter: he's been charged in brazil with filing a false police report after the drunken night out. if he gets a ten-month swimming suspension now, analysts say lochte may have gotten off easy. >> it's the year after the olympic games. i think a lot of the big names
7:34 am
are taking a year off anyway. >> reporter: the incident has been costly for lochte who has lost sponsors. >> i am speedo fit. >> reporter: now looking to repair his public image appearing on this season's "dancing with the stars." a ten-month suspension would be harsher than michael phelps' six-month suspension for his two duis. the most decorated olympian of all time empathizing with lochte last week on "today." >> i know what it feels like. i've been through it before. hopefully he comes out of this a better person. i reached out to him a couple times, and i think he understands a lot and he will be able to grow from this. >> we reached out to all four swimmers including lochte. none had any comment on this news at this time. a lot of these swimmers take the year after the olympics off anyway so this maybe doesn't hurt ryan. >> all right. thank you very much. now to some disturbing sights that have residents in

prank reports of clown sightings. the sheriff of cleveland county, north carolina, say perpetrators could be charged with obstruction of justice. meanwhile, 5-year-old sky brown just wants the creepy clowning to stop. >> i'm scared because i'm a kid and i am afraid that the clowns are going to kidnap me. >> reporter: sweet kid. there have been a dozen sightings at least in the greensboro area of these creepy clowns. professional clowns now tell us that they're having some difficult times fearful aboof vigilan vigilantes. they call police and tell them where they're going so they don't become a victim themselves. guys, back to you. >> sad state of affairs, kerry. thank you very much. mr. roker now with another check of the weather. >> i got flooding to talk about.
