7:01 am
savannah guthrie, live from las vegas, nevada. and good morning, everybody. welcome to a special split edition of "today" on this thursday morning. i'm savannah guthrie. it is the in i hmiddle of the nn las vegas. matt, not my typical vegas night but what an exciting one in terms of our politics. >> we don't have time to get into your typical las vegas night. when we watch debate over the years, you know instantly when something said in that debate is going to drive the headlines that next day. certainly no exception last night. the debate does top our look at the state of the race today. 19 days to go. started with a lot of substance on issues like guns and choosing supreme court nominees. but this morning, it is trump twice declining to say that he will accept the election's outcome if he lose is that has people talking. a cnn snap poll shows 52% of
7:02 am
debate watchers view clinton as the winner. 39% went with trump. as for today, trump holds a rally in ohio before meeting up with clinton once again, both are set to speak at a charity dinner here in new york city. but we're going to begin this morning with what happened last night. decision 2016 coverage starts with hallie jackson. she's with me here in vegas. everybody savannah, good mo. these comments made by trump are something top republicans are going to have to answer to today. it was a strong start for the gop nominee. >> reporter: defying a defining principle of democracy, donald trump refusing to say he'd accept the results of this election. >> i will look at it at the time. i'm not looking at anything now. i'll look at it at the time. >> reporter: the question, coming as the gop phenom ramps bl nominee wrams up rhetoric. >> the peaceful transition of power. are you say you respect prepared
7:03 am
now? >> what i'm saying is i will tell you at the time. i'll keep you in suspense. >> reporter: a reversal from what trump said three and half weeks ago. here's the story. if she wins, i will absolutely support her. >> reporter: not once, but twice. >> will you accept the outcome of the election? >> oh, yes, i will. >> that is the no the way our democracy works. we've been around for 240 years. we've had free and fair elections. we've accepted the outcomes whether we may not have liked them. and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. >> reporter: in a spin room after the debate, the gop chair trying to clarify what trump meant. >> first of all, i think he is going to seven the results because he is going to win. >> that's not what he said tonight on the stage. >> i think he is considering voter fraud. >> reporter: the debate in vegas coming after a week dominated by multiple allegations of sexual
7:04 am
conduct against trump which he has repeatedly denied and did again on stage, this time blaming clinton's campaign for the controversies. >> those stories have been largely debunked. those people -- i don't know those people. i have a feeling how they came. i believe it was her campaign that did it. >> he said that he could not possibly have done those things to those women because they were not attractive enough. >> i did not say that. >> -- to be assaulted. >> i did not say that. >> sir, her two minutes. >> i did not say that. >> it's her two minutes. >> he went on to say, look at her. i don't think so. >> reporter: facing fire for his comment about women, trump not holding back, saying about his rival -- >> such a nasty woman. >> reporter: his team trying to spin a win. pointing to a steady substantive start for trump worked to rally his base on supreme court picks, abortion rights and framing clinton as the status quo. >> i'm happy to compare my 30 years of experience, what i've
7:05 am
done for this country. >> reporter: one of trump's more memorable moments -- going viral. >> but we have some bad ombres here and we're going to get them out. >> reporter: along with this exchange on the emmys. >> when he started tweeting that the emmys were rigged again. >> reporter: and another on russian president vladimir putin. >> he'd rather have a puppet as president -- >> no puppet. no puppet. >> -- of the united states. >> you're the puppet. >> reporter: trump tweeting yo every night about making all his points. but clinton's campaign also claiming victory celebrating with drinks on their plane. >> we have finished our last debate and i'm feeling both relieved and very grateful. >> reporter: now after the final phaseoff, the final sprint to election day. whether trump will accept that outcome or not. >> reporter: and on that subject of accepting the outcome of the election, i had a chance to talk about donald trump's running mate, mike pence, in the spin room here in las vegas. here's a look at that
7:06 am
conversation. >> you said on sunday to our network that you would absolutely accept the results of this election. you did not add an "if," you did not add a qualification. should donald trump do the same? >> i think donald trump is going to be elected president of the united states. >> that's not an answer sir, respectfully. i've got to ask you to answer the question. do you think donald trump did what you say saying you would accept the results of the election without qualification. >> what donald trump said tonight. i wrote it down as a quote. he said i'll look at it at the time. and i think he's made a point that is resonating with millions of americans. we're going to continue to call on people all across this country to respectfully participate in the electoral process to ensure that we can all be confident in the vote. if the vote is fair, i'm confident that we'll accept it. >> you have said, governor, that you don't like name calling in this race. what did donald trump mean when he called hillary clinton a nasty woman? >> i think it was a pretty rough and tumble debate out there. but look, when you think about the stakes in this election, when you think about the fact
7:07 am
that seven and a half years of obama and hillary clinton is literally weakened america's place in the world, stifled america's economy, i understand. i understand some of the tough language, frankly, that came from both of the podiums, because the stakes are just that high. >> while this was the final face-off between these two presidential candidates, it is not the last time they are going to be in the same room. that's also happening tonight at a dinner in new york. >> election day -- three more weeks for you, hallie jackson. matt, back to you. >> savannah, thank you very much. we're joined now by senator tim kaine, the democratic vice presidential nominee. senator, good morning. good to see you. >> matt, great to you bab wibe you. >> donald trump refusing to pledge last night that he will accept the results of this election on november 8th. even though many of his surrogates and his own running mate have said, yes, they will accept the results. and donald trump himself three
7:08 am
weeks ago said he would absolutely accept the results. which donald trump do you believe? >> well, i think last night's donald trump was the real donald trump. it was on display for everybody. and, matt, that was the most shocking moment of the night. there were a couple of other big shockers, but i lived in honduras as a missionary 35 years ago. it was a military dictatorship. nobody could vote for president. boy, i really learned something. accepting the outcome of elections, and then the peaceful transfer of power is a bedrock pillar of our nation's history. and something that we do and take for granted. but many nations around the world, they can't do it. we should not have somebody running for president who is going to try to pull the pillar down which donald trump was basically trying to do last night. i think about -- >> i think his surrogates immediately knew that would dominate the headlines this morning. and so they tried to immediately put it in context. here was their argument. they're saying, let's go back to 2000 and that extremely
7:09 am
controversial election between al gore and george w. bush. al gore challenged the results all the way to the supreme court. they have a candidate who's already said they think -- that he thinks this election is rigged. so i guess their stance is, why should we already accept the results until we see them and look for any irregularities. >> well, al gore did in a very gracious way that was very patriotic accept the results once the court process was complete. but all along the way, he did it in a respectful to fuful tone. did al gore ever say things were rigged? absolutely not. he availed himself of legal processes that were fair. but this pre-election whining of donald trump that hillary clinton called him on. she said, look, the issue is this. you don't accept responsibility for anything. when you lose the emmys, you have to claim that there was some cabal conspiring against you. and that, matt, gets into a
7:10 am
deeper personality trait that is very, very dangerous. i think of our military deployed overse overseas. i got a boy deployed overseas now. they've got to take a command from the commander in chief, and they have to execute on it. but the commander in chief has to take a command from the american public. when you look at voters and say, sorry, guys, i may not accept your opinions, you're basically d dissing your own bosses, the american public. >> your campaign has been rocked by a steady stream of leaked e-mails of late. if you believe the russians are behind it -- and our intelligence agencies believe just that -- and if you believe hillary clinton that the russians are behind it so they can swing this election in the favor of donald trump, wouldn't you also have to believe that the russians would then save the best or, depending on your perspective, the worst for last and they might have some sort of late october, early november surprise in store? >> matt, i have no way of reading that psychology.
7:11 am
i mean i do know this -- millions of people have already voted. voting is going on. i'm in north carolina today, early vote starts today. so that's happening all over the country. but, look. that was an interesting exchange last night because, you know, hilly pointed out what our intelligence officials have confirmed, that russia's trying to influence the election. and again and again and again, donald would not admit that. well, if anybody's trying to do it, that's wrong. but he kept kind of going to the defense of russia at the same time as he wouldn't defend our democratic traditions and the results of an electoral mandate. it was extremely odd, and that's just one more reason why people need to turn out in droves. because we need to send a message to anybody outside this country who thinks they can influence an election. you better not mess around with our electoral democratic process. >> democratic vice presidential candidate tim kaine, senator, thank you for your time this morning. >> absolutely, matt, glad to be
7:12 am
with you. matt, thank you. we want to bring in chuck todd and mark halperin. guys, good morning to you. let me just be devil's advocate for a moment. there is near universal condemnation when donald trump said he wouldn't accept the results on november 8th. do you think this resonates with voters? do you think they'll say we care about this, this concerns us deeply? >> look, i think his voters do. i think they have been spun up about this idea that the system is rigged, that there is vote fraud, that it is more rampant than it actually is. they've been sort of fed this for a while. i think the reason why it's going to be -- it wasn't that he wants to wait and see to make sure how the election is run. it was this idea that he's been talking about this for a couple weeks, and i think now the reason it's so problematic for him, is everybody republican in the country today who's on the ballot is going to be asked about this, if they're going to accept the results. that's going to be the story. and that's going to be them sort
7:13 am
of criticizing donald trump. so i think it is a disaster. >> we'll never know how the world would have evaluated this debate without that comment because that comment overshadowed everything. it is ironic, it is the revenge of the elites and the establishment. i agree, not all voters will look at this and care that much. because the establishment cares because he's violated a fundamental principle of america. all the respect candidates in the establishment, everyone in the president, everyone analyzing this debate will say not only was it politically unwise, it was wrong for him to say it. that means he gets no bounce from this debate. >> a lot of people said of the three debates, this may have been donald trump's best. but they also say it was hillary clinton's best. where does that leave us? >> well, without that comment, it would have left us in a status quo situation where you would have had republicans down the ballot relieved that trump didn't fall on his face. but the problem is, this comment. it is so -- it is going to drive the next couple of days and here's what we don't know but we
7:14 am
know there's going to be some -- what is the reaction of him today on this? what is the provocation that he's going to feel? he's going to feel as if everybody now is piling on him, including more republicans that will pile on him. how does he handle that moment? in the past, he hasn't handled it well. >> the trouble for him is that what he said is contradicted by his running mate, the head of the party, his own daughter, ivanka, and his own words in one of the first debates. >> they all tried to walk it back. they all said leading up to the debate they would said the results. afterwards they try to walk it back. i agree with chuck, how he habls handles it will be key. but this is all he is going to talk about it before it is resolved. and it could be two days before it is resolved. >> all right, back to bed for you guys. matt? nicolle wallace joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's just put a period on this one subject of refusing to accept the results. when you heard it, jaw-dropping moment? >> jaw-dropping. i think on three hours of sleep
7:15 am
it is dangerous to do this. but let's subtract that for a moment. i agree with chuck todd if he hadn't said that we would be talking about an improved performance for donald trump. plenty of low points for him, some high moments talking about the economy. but it is just a lights-out kind of statement for anyone running to the president of the united states. >> michael steele says disqualifying. >> absolutely. >> you say improved performance. but donald trump is behind in the polls. did he do anything last night, including that comment, that moves the needle in his direction? >> no. if anything, the kinds of things that have had a real impact on his poll numbers are the stretches of his candidate where republicans have come out and really bludgeoned him. what he should be prepared for today is for the republican establishment to really, really beat him up for saying that he may or may not accept the results of this election. >> let's talk about hillary clinton here for a second. you brought us a piece yesterday where you went out and you spoke to moms contemplating voting in this election. one of the things they still had a fear of with hillary clinton was that whole trust issue.
7:16 am
did hillary clinton do what she needed to do last night, do or say anything, that would help soften their feelings there? >> you know, as with trump, i think it was an improved performance for her, too. when she started at a pretty high point. her first debate was strong. this one i thought was the strongest yet. i think what they were looking for was for her to engage, for her to defend herself. i think her defense of the clinton foundation, her defense of some of her less popular stances was what they were looking for. at least three of them were already in her camp. i think her explaining herself a little more and doing it from a position of strength does help her among some of these women looking for a little more texture in her answers. >> real quickly. 19 days to go before the election. she has a big lead based on most of the polling i've seen. what's her biggest fear right now? >> i think her biggest fear is that the public sort of receives last night differently from those of us who have worked in politics who understand sort of the earthquake that it was to say that you might not accept american democracy as a whole. perhaps voters will see that and
7:17 am
they'll see our democracy as just against them as they see the gop media or against the establishment. that's a known unknown from her perspective and they had would have to recalibrate a little bit. we'll have more on the debate and fallout over trump's bombshell refusal just ahead. but right now let's get a check of weather from dylan who's in for al. >> thanks, matt. islip new york yesterday was the same temperature as key west, florida. so temperatures were running about 15 to 25 degrees above average. today, we're looking for most of our near-record high temperatures to be across the south and the southeast where in atlanta we could break the record. the old record 85. we are forecasting a high of 86. tallahassee falls just shy of the record. as we look through the midwest today, minneapolis back to close to average, about 51 degrees. then as we go into friday, 54 in pittsburgh. we are looking for that cooler air to settle if across the northeast by the time we get to
7:18 am
the weekend. th good thursday morning to you. meteorologist anthony slaughter here. waking up to sunshine once again and we're expecting warm temperatures later on. in the 40s across the north bay. same deal for the east bay and the peninsula. everywhere we're waking up to sunshine. that's going to lead to a warm day inland. we're talking low to mid 80s today for the north bay. same deal for the tri-valley and the south bay. even in san francisco today we'll manage mid 70s.
7:19 am
enjoy today because temperatures cool for the weekend and rain is in store as soon as sunday night. >> and that's your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan, thank you very much. just ahead, in the wake of a powerful explosion in portland, would you know what to do if you thought there was a gas leak at your home? we'll show you on a new "rossen reports." and we're going to have much more on those final debate fireworks from here in vegas. tom brokaw will join us on the history of contesting elections in this country. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

7:30 now on a thursday morning, the 20th day of october, 2016. as we say hi to the folks out on our cold plaza. savannah is out in las vegas. savannah, i want you to be honest with me. after the debate, making your b back to the hotel, going through the lobby, did you even play one hand of blackjack? >> i didn't. i didn't. but i went straight to the bar and ordered a huge orange juice. huge orange juice. we'll talk more about the debate in a moment, but first other headlines this thursday morning. overnight iraq's prime minister announced that the battle to retake mosul from isis going faster than he expected. iraqi specialincense
7:31 am
-- intensifying the fight as they close in on mosul. the cleveland indians won the american league championship series wednesday, 4-1 games. in the national league, the cubs defeated the dodgers last night to even that series at 2-2 games. the other headlines this morning, donald trump throwing yet another wrinkle in an already-chaotic election when asked at the debate if he'll accept the results on november 8th. >> i will tell you at the time. i'll keep you in suspense. >> hillary clinton called that horrifying and the rnc was quick to say it would respect the will of the people even if trump doesn't. much more on that in a moment. but first, "today's campaign moment." here is a photo that proves last night was must-see tv, even at 36,000 feet. a passenger aboard a virgin america flight from new york to san francisco snapped this picture.
7:32 am
it shows basically everyone glued to the debate on satellite tv, which is good to see, savannah. >> all right, lot of eyeballs on this night and the stage behind me. again, the most talked about moment from that debate, when donald trump refused to say whether he'll be able to accept the election results. it left both democrats and republicans stunned. nbc national correspondent peter alexander with more on that. >> good morning. donald trump's comment is already overshadowing everything else said last night. now every republican in the country is going to be asked whether they'll accept the results of the election. that moment amounting to an unprecedented break from a fundamental principle of american democracy. trump defiantly warning that he could take his feud with hillary clinton past election day. from donald trump, a stunning statement refusing to say definitively that he'll accept the results of next month's presidential election. >> i will look at it at the time. >> reporter: the reality star turned republican nominee
7:33 am
treating a 200-year-old american tradition like a hollywood script. >> i'll keep you in suspense. >> let me respond to that because that's horrifying. he's talking down our democracy and i, for one, am appalled. >> reporter: trump contradicting his own running mate, mike pence, immediately before the debate on cnn. >> we'll certainly accept the outcome of this election. >> reporter: even daughter ivanka predicted he'd accept the results earlier in the day. >> he'll either win or he won't win. and i believe he'll accept the outcome either way. >> reporter: trump also contradicting himself at the first debate just three weeks ago. >> the answer is, if she wins, i will absolutely support her. >> reporter: his unprecedented position wednesday night threatening to undermine the election's outcome adding even more fuel to what's become a frequently repeated refrain on the campaign trail. >> it looks to me like a rigged election. >> a totally rigged election. >> it is a rigged election. >> this is a rigged system, folks. >> reporter: but a loyola law study finds voter fraud virtuallynonexistent.
7:34 am
from many leading republican, disbelief. jeff flake, a trump critic i, calling his answer beyond the pale. lindsey graham tweets if he loses it is not because the system is rigged but because he failed as candidate. trump's campaign manager kellyanne conway attempting to clean up his comments in the spin room. >> donald trump will accept the results of the election because he's going to win the election so they'll be easy to accept. >> reporter: pence following suit. >> i think donald trump is going to be elected president of the united states. >> reporter: trump's advisors point to al gore disputing the results of the 2000 presidential election leading to a five-week stalemate and legal battle with george w. bush. but ultimately gore offered a gracious concession. >> while i strongly disagree with the court's decision, i accept it. >> reporter: since the civil war, the losing presidential candidate has always conceded ensuring a peaceful transition of power. after george h.w. bush lost his re-election fight to bill clinton, the sitting president penned a letter to his opponent saying, in part, your success now is our country's success.
7:35 am
i am rooting hard for you." in 1960, after a close election, richard nixon offered encouragement to john f. kennedy. >> if this trend does continue and he does become our next president, that he will have my wholehearted support. >> reporter: that type of peaceful transition is something president obama highlighted this week. >> the person who loses the election congratulates the winner, re-affirms our democracy, and we move forward. that's how democracy survives. >> reporter: trump's latest controversy, defying convention. less than three weeks before america votes. overnight hillary clinton's advisors tell nbc news that trump's complaints of a rigged election are among the reasons they not only want to win but they want to win big. clinton about to kick off a breakneck pace for the final sprint, increasingly eyeing traditionally red states like arizona. michelle obama will be there before the end of the week.
7:36 am
what will trump say about his latest's comment? he'll get his first chance to try to clarify midday in ohio. savannah? >> all right, peter, thank you so much. we've got tom brokaw here with more. tom, we always kind of turn to you in these moments because you are our resident veteran and historian. can you put into perspective for people why that statement is such an earthquake? had. >> well, at this stage of the campaign, we're not even at the results yet. he's already saying i may not accept the results. this is not a banana republic. we've got more than 200 years of presidential elections and graceful and peaceful transitions to the new administration, as you saw even richard nixon. al gore. the people who were caught up in very close races said "i accept that this is the new president." his complaints have been, apparently, that he thinks there is a media conspiracy of some kind. media conspiracy consists of the "new york times" printing his tax returns in which he didn't pay, it appears, paying any taxes after taking a billion dollar loss.
7:37 am
he had more air time than the geico gecko in the summer around his rallies were about him. i think that affected his thinking, he thinks it will be that way all the way through. rally and early part of the primaries are spring training. this is the general election. >> you probably can't find any presidential candidate in modern history who didn't feel the media was definitely stacked against that candidate. >> definitely on the republican side they always feel there is a little media. but the fact of the matter is you have fox news and a lot of other publications, and social media which has become very, very important in this process. >> let me go back for a minute though. what we are hearing for the trump camp this morning is, wait a minute, al gore contested an election in florida. you read and know your history. you know that republicans contested aspects in the election in 1960 on behalf of nixon. what is the distinction. >> let's begin with 1960. richard nixon took it graciously and the republicans didn't get very far with it. nixon didn't want them to go all the way with it.
7:38 am
al gore contested it because it was a very confusing situation. by the way, he had 7 million more votes than his opponent in the final general election. it went to the supreme court as it needed to. it was an unbelievablebly confusing situation there. i think this all calls for a big, big reform, if you will, of our election process in this country. i think it is too much control by secretaries of state. but the most offended secretaries of state are the republicans who are in charge of voting around the country and they're saying, look, we're going to run a clean election and donald trump ought not to be questioning that. >> when you see politicians on both sides saying we have such a decentralized system, it would be hard to execute on a conspiracy even if you wanted to. >> i think starting with the primaries and through the general election, the country needs to take a hard look at how we elect a president of the united states so we don't have this kind of confusion at the end. his hard core followers will be with him. there is no question about that. but the fact of the matter is, it is going to be interesting to see how this plays out in a

8:03 am
sparked criticism from both sides of the aisle. after days of claiming the u.s. election prois es is r icess is. donald trump went one step further. >> do you make the commitment that you will, sir, that you will absolutely accept the result of this election? >> i will look at it at the time. i'm not looking at anything now. i'll look at it at the time. what i've seen, what i've seen is so bad. >> reporter: and dug in, even when pressed. >> but, sir, there is a tradition in this country, in fact one of the prides of this country is that peaceful of transition of power. are you saying you are not prepared now to -- >> what i'm saying is i will tell you at the time. i will keep you in suspense. >> reporter: prompting this sharp rebuke from hillary clinton. >> let me respond to that, because that's horrifying. that is not the way our democracy works. we've been around for 240 years. we've had free and fair elections. we've accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them. >> reporter: this morning on "today," hillary clinton's running mate, tim kaine,

8:33 am
cw's "super girl" next month. dylan, thanks. two-time oscar winner tom hanks is reprising his role as robert langden in the new thriller "enter kn"e "inferno." >> he's doing it all with an a-list cast. keir simmons caught up with them. >> you know when you interview tom hanks, never, ever show weakness. perhaps you won't experience this though. i headed there thinking the movie is called "inferno," it is going to be sunny, colorful. boy, did i get that wrong. tom hanks wasted no time pointing that out. >> reporter: in "inferno," tom hanks races to prevent the release of a deadly virus. his character, dr. robert langden, battling to solve a mystery. >> you are humanity's final hope. >> reporter: as in the blockbuster movies the da vinci code and angels and demons.
8:34 am
but this time, it is a vision of hell. >> this is what i have been seeing. >> reporter: "inferno's" setting, sunny florence, italy. we meet the cast and, inevitably, it is raining. >> man. >> but you look great. >> are we rolling on that? >> the people behind us will do anything but protect the truth. >> you have no idea what they're capable of. >> reporter: behind the movie, a pair capable of producing hit after hit. >> he is a mpleasure. >> you just love working with him. >> we do. as you can attest -- he is a horrible task master. we have to please this guy. sometimes, yeah, i'm told what to do and i do what i'm told. >> he's not buying that. >> there are lives at stake here. i just want to know that i'm on the right side. >> this is a kind of movie when you go on location to places
8:35 am
like this, they pull everybody together. whether it is two weeks or two months, you tend to go out to dinner, you tend to go see the places. >> what a bunch of malarkey. hardly ever saw ben. he was coming in to a read through once. omar and i don't speak the same language. felicity was really showing her mum around. >> we kept saying can we put her in the movie. >> reporter: felicity jones known for many from her role in "the theory of everything." her character teaming up with hanks while the villain played by ben foster, so fixated on ending global overpopulation, he plans mass murder. omar's character only emerging in the end. >> working with tom, this is a big deal. this is exciting. >> exactly. exactly. >> on the final shot, he accidentally fell into the canal. >> he was knocked into the canal
8:36 am
by the guy with the camera. wasn't it? >> ben, did you fall into any canals? >> no. i just fell out of a damn bell tower. >> wasn't it that one right there? >> right over there. >> i think you must be staying in the same hotel as we are because there's like a crowd of 300 people waiting outside. we go out to ask them if they have any questions for you. so this is what they wanted to know. >> tom hanks, do you want to go and get ice cream with these guys? >> look, i don't want to burst your bubble, but it ain't gonna happen. >> okay. here is another question. >> how old are you? >> how old am i? that's easy. >> how old are you? >> how old are you? >> i'm 60. i turned 60 this years. big six-oh. >> i directed him in his 20s. not much has changed. >> isn't that amazing. >> long time ago. >> that is beautiful. >> reporter: tom hanks at 60, still loving the job.
8:37 am
"inferno," his third movie, is here. >> it starts with a question i think everybody's asking, plarl particularly on a day like today, what are we doing in florence? you get the answer to that over the next two hours. rock 'em sock 'em entertainment. >> if i can break the code, we can stop this. >> for me, guys, this is the best of the movies. it has more edge, it is darker. i love those fans waiting outside. they were there for three hours. the best question they could come up with was how old are you, and will you go for ice cream with us? >> they just wanted selfies. that's it. >> "inferno" opens in theaters next friday, october 28th. up next, warm weather destination do you need to consider for your winter vacation. but first on a thursday morning, this is "today" on nbc. because she doesn't know that it kills 40,000 californians...
8:38 am
8:39 am
every year. because she doesn't understand what cancer is. because she can't spell emphysema. because she is a butterfly, who fights fires. because she is my daughter, and the surgeon general says that raising tobacco taxes... is a proven way to make sure she never smokes. that's why i'm voting yes on 56.
8:40 am
back now at 8:39 with winter getting closer by the day, you may be thinking about heading somewhere warm. here with some great destinations to consider that as a bonus are zika-free, misty bellas, good morning. it can sometimes get stressful when booking your winter trips. thinking about air fafare and hotels. what's the general rule in getting the best rate when you are booking a hotel? >> right now don't look at just the nightly rate because we are seeing great multi night promotions that have third, fourth, fifth night free, breakfast added in. additional resort credits. some that way. also look at prepaid rates. you're going to save some money right there. there may be restrictions. but most importantly, book now. once we reach november those rates are going to go up and up
8:41 am
until you get to christmas. >> is the best way straight online or do you think sometimes it is better to call the hotel yourself around say, hey, what do you have for me? >> either way. you can call the hotel or book directly, or you can also work with a travel advisor who takes the stress out of it for you. >> flights are also a very stressful thing. >> the best time to book is actually weekends or early in the morning. that's when you'll see the best fares. also book 21 days in advance. right now you have plenty of time it to do that for the holidays. also be flexible on your dates. >> some people say it's a good idea -- sometimes my family and i do this when we go away, sometimes we like to go away for christmas. we'll actually fly the morning of christmas eve. when you pick special dates like that do you usually get a better rate? >> you'll actually save more flying on snchristmas day than u will christmas eve. if you are willing to be flexible, you'll see quite a bit of savings traveling on the
8:42 am
holiday themselves. and we found great fares on monday, december 19th. >> the magic day. so if you want the caribbean feel but maybe aren't up for the caribbean, what is a cool islandy cool destination you guys like? >> everyone seems to be headed to hawaii this year. christmas week is almost completely sold out. if that's the direction you want to go, go the two weeks prior to christmas because you'll save 50%, 60% on your rate and they have availability. >> hawaii's number one. what about cabo if you want to go somewhere else? >> we love cabo. cabo is zika-free because it is a dry, arrid environment. >> is it afor tfordable for mos? >> it can be. going christmas will save you more but there are still values to be had during christmas week. >> if we want to stay in the usa and get warm and feel good, give me a couple of spots that you like. >> desert resorts. head to palm springs. again, easy to get to.
8:43 am
palm springs embraces their sort of old hollywood feel. they have some fine glamorous rat pack parties during the holidays. then also look at scottsdale. again, great for families, easy to get to. but the airfares to scoots dale a scottsdale are affordable. >> weather wise do you hit the jackpot when it comes to those two spots? >> they have over 300 days of sun every year. you are really assured a nice sunny vacation. >> don't you want to live there? i mean those kind of places? talk about if you are a city gal or city guy and want to hit a nice city. i am all for your first one. new orleans, it is one of my favorite cities on earth. >> i thought you might like that. new orleans is great. you have fun, festive and food all converging on this great destination. wonderful for families and also for couples. the key to new orleans is going during the week because you will save so much more on your hotels. >> there is always some kind of festival there that you didn't see coming. we have a couple of others
8:44 am
cities. new york, london, paris. >> christmas week is a great time to visit those cities because they are really reliant on business travel. when business travel goes soft during that week, leisure travelers can save 25% to 30% on their hotels and enjoy the cities while they are all dressed up for the holidays. >> there is nothing like new york during the holidays. i think everyone should do it once in their life. misty, thanks very much. just ahead, a warm and comforting dish perfect for the fall. but first, this is "today" on nbc. woman: how do we protect them from $4 billion in new cuts to california schools? man: vote yes on proposition 55. woman: prop 55 doesn't raise taxes on anyone. man: not on working californians, not small businesses. no one. woman: instead, prop 55 simply
8:45 am
maintains the current tax rate on the wealthiest californians. man: so those who can most afford it continue paying their fair share... woman: ...to prevent new education cuts... man: ...and keep improving california's schools. woman: vote yes on prop 55 to help our children thrive.
8:46 am
. 8:46. we're back with "today food." more tools you need to be using in your kitchen. our chef is co-owner of a restaurant in new york city. i'm dying to know what your go-to tool is in the kitchen? what can't you live without? >> this -- a dutch oven.
8:47 am
>> why is a dutch oven so important? >> i love it because when you do stews in the fall and the winter and you cook the meat, you see the meat caramelize in it. all that brings extra flavor to your food when you cook it. so it is fantastic for stews. >> you're making goulash today. before i ask you what a traditional goulash is all about, let's take a look at some ingredients here. >> goulash you need paprika, we have of course some meat. you can use top ground. but you cook it for a stew for hours so it become tender. chicken stock, onion, carrot and caraway. >> cutting an onion is an art. you can mess this up. show us how you do it. >> okay. so the onion is always difficult on the table because it is round and it is rolling. so you want to make sure you
8:48 am
make it flat. and then you have here this part which is the stem. you always want to keep the stem -- it keeps the onion together. use a good, sharp nice, make depending on the size of what you want. those insessicisions in the oni. >> not going all the way through because you're keeping it together. >> exactly. your fingers are guiding the blade. then you go flat like this. again, flat. so. >> i should mention, you do this in real time in the kitchen, this is bang, bang, bang. >> real fast. then you cut like that. >> you're going to put that in with the meat that's browned. then we put vegetables in it. we have some garlic, carrots, more onions.
8:49 am
all that goes in it. stir it up. i am going to put the caraway and of course the paprika which makes the goulash. we let it cook slowly. five to ten minutes depending on the heat. then we move when they are soft like that, i'm going to add some tomato paste. you are going to give me the meat. i'm putting some tomato paste. it is still cooking. like that. a bit of flour. that will give some richness to the sauce. little bit of flour on top of the meat. chicken stock. all the chicken stock. >> we've got tasters downstairs, by the way. i can't wait to taste this? >> i can't stop saying how good it is. >> so delicious. >> perfect breakfast. >> welcome to the "today" show. >> so this is going to cook down. how long? >> we going to bring it up to
8:50 am
boil, then we put it in the oven at 350 to 375 for couple of hours. put it here. in this oven like that. >> and the best part about a meal like this is this fills your house with that great smell. >> it's the fall. you really want to have some nice food like that. so here we have of course the meats that is cooked. >> just want to take a piece. if that's allowed. >> it is allowed. actually, you must taste your food. you always have to taste, make sure the meat is getting tender. >> in a traditional goulash are there things you must have or can you substitute certain things? >> you cannot substitute the paprika. okay? and goulash is made with meat, so you're not going to use anything else than meat. but you can do chicken. you could use pork or something
8:51 am
like that. i'm going to clean a little bit of the bowl. we use egg noodles in the center. and then i always like to put a little bit of sour cream or creme fraiche to cut the richness. and at the end, little parsley. >> you know what's fun, guys, downstairs? when a guy who really knows what he's doing comes here on a thursday morning and you get to walk into your dressing room with something like this. eric, this is fantastic. thank you so much. >> it is my pleasure. >> always good to have you here. he's heading off to take over our "today food" facebook page and answer all of your questions. don't forget to check out today.com/food. sign up for the today food club. thank you again. back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.
