7:04 am
destroying buildings, up to 2 feet of rain and a storm surge of up to 9 feet, likely spawning massive flooding. >> i think the guests don't have any idea what's about to happen here. i don't think anybody does, this is an unprecedented historic hurricane. >> that was nbc news' gabe gutierrez in san juan right now. >> al is over here in the studio. he se tracking where the storm has been, where it is now wrand it's going. >> we are seeing some weakening now it's over land. currently still a dangerous category 4 storm. it is about 20 miles west of san juan, puerto rico, 145 pile per hour winds, picking up speed, moving northwest at 13 miles per hour. here's what we are looking for as far as the impacts are concerned. as you see, a this is moves to the west, you will see those winds picking up as we move west. 108 miles per hour t. storm surge large and destructive
7:05 am
waves, 6-to-9 foot storm surge generally, streams and flooding, just catastrophic with mudslides, highest totals about 20-to-25 inches of rain. there could be even more up into the mountains. we will be watching this very closely. now, impacts, once this moves on from puerto rico, it will still be a category 4 storm coming tomorrow morning into the dominican republic. 4-6 foot waves, 4-8 inches of rain or more. on friday the turks and caicos under the bulls eye, 100 to 125 mile per hour winds, four-to-eight inches of rain the track brings it out into the atlantic sometime early as a category 2 storm with 100-mile-per-hour winds. we will run the spaghetti strands, as we call them, to the american modem. look at this by tuesday afternoon, look at where some of
7:06 am
these bring in actually into the del mar peninsula, parts of pennsylvania, some of them keep them right off the coast. so we will have to continue to watch this. here's what we're looking at as far as steering is concerned. so we have maria. we also have tropical storm jose. we also have two big areas of high pressure. we expect maria to come between those two areas of high pressure f. jose wasn't here, heed we'd be at lot more concerned. those would i you a lou those to block maria. it should give us a escape, generally. we have to watch it. we have another front that should hopefully push that out. until we can see what happens, this is still six to seven days out. we still don't know exactly what it will do once it clears. right now, our main concern is for our friends in puerto rico and then moving onto the turks and caicos and the dominican republic. >> and at this time of the year that part of the atlantic still has warm water in it.
7:07 am
>> absolutely. we don't see the end of the hurricane season until november 30th. >> that's just a wind source, a rain story if puerto rico, unfortunately. al, thank you, we'll check back in. earlier, we spoke to puerto rico's governor and we ban the by asking him about the conditions he was experiencing and how he was faring. >> well, the conditions are deteriorating rapidly. we're getting severe extreme winds, a lot of rain and as we had projected. the critical part over here right now is to make sure that people are safe. we open 500 shelters. we're making sure we can maintain communication with them as long as possible. this is a clearly going to be the most devastating storm in the history of our island. our main focus. our only focus is to make sure people are out of harm's way this is just the beginning of the storm.
7:08 am
>> that it's going to take about another half a day until the worst part hits in terms of the wind strength. then we will get a lot of rain which will produce a lot of flooding a. dangerous scenario, obviously, we have a lot of faith that we'll be able save lives and then start replacing that, that is replaceable. >> governor, you talked about keeping people safe, including you did not mince words, you told people to get out or the results would be horrific. so you got all those shelters, those people in those shelters. are those shelters all equipped to withstand winds of 1ri69, 160 miles per hour? >> well, you know, it is a critical question. we have a cone established right around 2011 t. infrastructure that was built right after that should with 'stand those winds
7:09 am
of course, some of it did not go under those codes, but really, the critical component was, we have a lot of houses over here that are wooden that are flooded areas. those houses have no chance, usually at the strength that these winds are coming in, the high levels of flooding that we're going to get, what we want to make sure was to put them in the best the safest possible way, place, that they're out of flooding areas. they are built in solid concrete so we expect them to withhold, of course. this is an unprecedented storm. already, i am seeing that the tenth strongest hurricane of its kind and it's a slow storm as well. so it's gentleman to be here in puerto rico for a while. so our help is that it can withstand. we know we put them in a much better position. information of the infrastructure of the weak
7:10 am
infrastructure we have is in the early onset of this storm is it's been devastated. so our, again, our only focus throughout this preparation process is to make people get out of harm's way, even some of the shelters or family homes that are safer. >> governor, have you our thoughts and our prayers with you. these are tough ours. we wish you the very best. >> thank you all and for your thoughts and prayers. >> we will have the latest throughout the morning. >> unfortunately, we have to play to another devastating earth quake in mexico. the morning the death toll skyrocketing. it's now in the hundreds and rescuers are searching grantically for survivors under the rubble of buildings that have collapsed. the 7.1 magnitude epicenter is 80 miles to the southeast of mexico city. mikel almaguer is there. good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning.
7:11 am
this is the scene across mexico city, block after block, building after building if ruins. this is actually an employment office. it was six stories tall when that quake went off just after lunchtime. it pancaked down to about three stories. at this hour first responders are looking for survivors. they pulled more than a dozen people from this debris field. they say at least a dozen more are still trapped beneath this debris field alive t. death toll now stands at about 200. but that number will climb. it took only seconds to bring this region to its knees. a devastating earth altering 7.1 magnitude quake tuesday, mexico city, building after building, crumbling to pieces. a wave of pang as thousands of terrified people poured into the streets. explosions rocked neighborhoods,
7:12 am
as natural gas filled the air. today a growing sense of desperation. more than 20 children killed when their elementary school collapsed. this morning, more bodies are being pulled from the rubble. many are still missing. this man says, we're trying to clear the streets and ambulances and firefighters can get through. overnight, the race is on to rescue survivors. neighbors removing debris, desperate to find friends and loved ones buried alive t. injured carted away anyway they can. the epicenter of the quake, 75 miles outside mexico city. the tremors powerful enough to sway reenforced buildings. on the air, a local news anchor warned viewers, stay calm and seek shelter. before deciding to take his own advice as the trembles became more violent.
7:13 am
plumes of dust billowing into the air where structures once stood, hospitals are in sham m shambles. on the streets, a call of quiet to hear those beneath the rumble. two weeks ago they were rocked by a quake that killed 98. >> we can say one earthquake makes another one more likely. the 8 probably made the 7 more likely. >> reporter: this morning, thousands are living on the streets, too afraid to go back inside. since that massive.1 quake, incredibly, there has been no major aftershocks. >> that allows recoup teams like the ones you are looking at to continue to dig for survivors. again they have heard calls for help in this building. hours before this massive quake, they were practicing earthquake drills marking the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 quake that killed 10,000 in this very city. those practicing those drills,
7:14 am
minutes later were finding a way that scramble for their lives. matt, savannah, back to you guys. >> miguel, thank you very much. in the meantime, it's another important day for president trump in new york city on the heels of his first address to the u.n. general assembly. his combative speech had harsh words to north korea and iran. it drew mixed reviews from the other world leaders present. peter alexander, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, president trump right now sitting down with the king of jordan, saying that the relationship between the two countries has never been better. this is one of back-to-back-to-back meetings for this president on this day, meeting with the leaders of jordan, egypt, the palestinian authority and the united kingdom t. focus will heavily be on middle east and peace and what the president calls radical islamic terrorism. still echoing here in the halls of the u.n. that combative
7:15 am
address taking aim at north korea and iran. overnight, president trump calling his u.n. debut a success, tweeting, met with leaders of many nations who agree with much or all of what i stated in my speech. >> that controversial speech filled with fresh fire and fury, delivering a drier warning to north korea. >> the united states has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself for its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. >> reporter: deriding it's rattic dictator, kim jong-un, whose country left a lone diplomat in the room. >> rocketman is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. >> reporter: that rocketman, a last-minute add by the president, himself, tacked on to a fierce 40-minute speech full of blunt, bleak assessments. >> major portions of the world are in conflict and some, in fact, are going to hell.
7:16 am
>> reporter: the reactions in the hall from the president's chief of staff drawing attention on social media. hillary clinton weighing in late tuesday on colbert. >> i thought it was very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world should be delivering. and not call him rocketman, the old elton john song. >> reporter: mr. trump also putting an international twist on a favorite campaigned theme. >> i will always put america first. just like you as the leaders of your countries will always and should always put your countries first. >> reporter: president trump reenforcing his opposition to the iran nuclear deal, warning the u.s. may withdraw from the pack negotiated with five other countries. >> that deal the an embarrassment to the united states. and i don't think you've heard the last of it, believe me. >> reporter: israel's prime
7:17 am
minister benjamin netanyahu never heard a more bolder or courageous peach at the u.n.. some criticizing it as ignorant hate speech. he asked the president about the potential impact. >> iran would be able to make choices, would that include resuming some of the nuclear activities that are currently prohibited? >> we can easily go back to previous conditions if counterparts were to fought live up to their commitments. >> reporter: insisting his country would only return to peaceful nuclear activities but arguing america would no oner be trusted on the world stage. also this morning, a little domestic politics, pressing is sarah huckaby sanders telling me president trump would sign into law the latest republican effort to repeal and replace obamacare. president trump, himself, tweeting about the topic this morning, writing, in part, i hope republican senators would vote for what's called graham-cassidy and fulfill their
7:18 am
promise to repeal and replace obamacare. right now in washington, republican senators alongside the white house are searching for enough votes, matt, and savannah, with several republican senators still undecided. back to you. >> we will be following that one for sure, thank you. >> we will go to al for the rest of the forecast. >> let's see what we have happening outside, all in all, not a bad day out west. 60 degrees and sunshine, 100 in phoenix, partly cloudy, look for a high of 76 degrees. salt like looking at sunshine, 76 degrees t. rest of the country, we expect to see plenty of wet weather along the gulf coast and coastal flooding in the no

now. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in the capital, san juan. gabe, good morning, again. how are things? >> reporter: savannah, good morning. the winds here are intensifying rapidly. we are inside a concrete structure taking shelter, and the wall protecting us here to our right, but you can see these howling winds and torrential rain are continuing to pound puerto rico's capital. san juan appears to be devastated. it's hard to see anything from this vantage point right now, but we can see palm trees about to be blown over, debris strewn throughout the streets and parts of buildings being blown off. the governor and other authorities have been urging people to evacuate for days, especially those in wooden structures and flood-prone areas. some officials saying evacuate or die. well, the time for that has passed, at least here in san ju juan. au as you can see, there is nowhere to turn. this could potentially be catastrophic. it is the strongest storm to slam into puerto rico in nearly a century, and it is absolute chaos here behind me as we go
7:33 am
indoors to try to weather this massive storm. matt and savannah? >> all right, gabe, thank you. >> we're joined on the phone by laurel brannock. her home on st. john was destroyed by hurricane irma. she went to puerto rico, and this morning she's dealing with the impact of maria. laurel, can youmaria, can you h us? good morning. >> yes, hi, good morning. >> it's hard to imagine the couple of weeks you've had. talk to us about where you are right now and what you're seeing. >> well, i am here in san juan with a bunch of other islanders who got slammed with hurricane irma. we came here in hopes, a lot of us, of getting like sliced out for our families and friends. my 75-year-old mother who would want to get out. they had a flight today at 7:00, obviously that's not happening. we're all holed up here in sheridan, the hotel's boarded up, they boarded up the windows and things so we can't see outside, but the glass is like rattling and it's really
7:34 am
raining. they're treating us nice. they made everybody leave their room and we're all like in this banquet area. just trying to hold on for the next two hours until the storm passes. >> and i can't imagine how you and your family must feel because you just went through this with irma and your home on the virgin islands. tell us what happened there. >> yes. we're very stressed. my husband said we're all going to need counseling when this is over. the door blew in and part of our roof went and our house was unlivable, we went to the car, neighbors, and now we're at the sherid sheridan, we're just like refugees refugees. we're comfortable here. we don't know -- i've lived in st. john for 25 years. my son's school was damaged. a lot of people had to close up businesses, car rentals, catering, the island won't be up and running right now. >> we're showing a picture of
7:35 am
your home right now. >> well, that's not my home, that's the building my husband manages. but there -- it was a beautiful million dollar building and went to check it out. st. john's economy is tourism. all the villas, hotels, the campgrounds, some of them are gone. there was a beautiful campground in the bay, very damaged. mill bay resort, may not reopen, may reopen. and so, yeah, it's going to be a rebuilding for a year or two. >> yeah, that sounds like a daunting task, the rebuilding. are you getting your head around that even at all at this point? >> i'm trying to because, you know, i've been told to relocate for like six months to a year, but i'm trying to -- six months, i want to see the light of the end of a tunnel but maybe in six months. like i said, i've lived there for 25 years, my son is 11, he was born in the virgin island.
7:36 am
he came from a small class at a private school. everybody's all scattered all over the united states, people all left. he's starting middle school and i would like him to rejoin his class maybe in the spring or something. >> laurel, our hearts are with you as you weather this storm as we speak. you've been through so much. thank you for your time and hoping for the best. >> all right, thank you for paying attention. >> of course. mooi. >> michael bloomberg came to visit and he said you guys picked a bad time to have a disaster. >> no, i know and there's so much devastation because of that hurricane season. that brings us over to matt and dylan. >> dylan is here with more on maria and important information to bear in mind. when we look at this area, look at the caribbean, the u.s. virgin islands, this is ripe for hurricanes, but are we seeing some kind of abnormality here this year? >> well, i would say despite puerto rico's location. you know, they've only ever had
7:37 am
four category 4 hurricanes come within 75 miles of it. they've only been hit by a category 5 storm once in 1928. if you think about it, the storms are really very small relative to the size of the ocean. it takes a very precise path for these storms to make a direct hit, and unfortunately we are getting that precise path for these storms. >> let's go back and look at irma. that was a category 4 storm, it was a glancing blow, you and al tell us about the weak and the strong sides of the storm, does it matter in this case because it's cutting diagonally right across puerto rico. >> irma was a test run, it stayed 30 miles offshore and still, 70% of people were without power, 34% were without water. now this storm is staying to the southwest of san juan, the most populated city 12 is now on the dirty side, the northeast side of the storm, we are going to see much more significant damage. >> it seems like day after day, hurricane, hurricane, hundred, how much longer of the meat of the hurricane season do we have to face? >> well, we are in the peak of
7:38 am
it right now. we're just getting passed peak, 13 name storms so far this season. savage ten. it's an above average season. the thing is this year we've had two category 5 hurricanes in the same season, that hasn't happened for ten years. we had two category 4 hurricanes make direct land fall in the mainland united states. so, i think this year, it seems more active because many more people are affected as opposed to these storms staying out over the water. so it's certainly raised awareness and we're concerned because people are impacted. >> they are. dylan, thank you very much. for more, let's go over to al. >> all right guys, let's take a look at jose which is just hanging out right now at this point. it's a tropical storm, 195 miles south of nantucket, 65 mile per hour winds, moving northeast at eight miles per hour and keeping in context of this kind of crazy season, i've never seen a system kind of just do this loop like this. and just kind of sit out there. we've got coastal flood warnings around the dell march, tropical
7:39 am
storm warnings for new england. it's just going to hang out and hopefully eventually get out of here. it may also help usher maria out. we'll have to wait and see. hot and humid conditions in the central mississippi river valley, wet weather in the pacific good morning, i'm meteorologist kari hall. we are watching for a chance of spotty, light rain. the rain, still well to the north of us with mostly cloudy skies moving in. we will have a chance of showers throughout the day and cooler than normal temperatures. looking at upper 60s to low 70s for the high temperatures today. tomorrow, it will be breezy and cooler with san francisco reaching 63 degrees. fall officially begins on friday, then it starts to warm up for the weekend. inland areas go from mid-70s up to 90 by tuesday. with all this weather going on, check out our friends at the weather channel on cable. >> al, thank you. why photos newborn babies

8:02 am
>> we want to say hi to our friends and parents and by the way, we're pregnant! >> and we welcome you back to "today" on this wednesday morning. thank you for joining us. we're going to get outside and say hi to them because you know what? we need some handshakes and hugs on a morning like this. >> we really do, it is just so sad, we've got twin stories going on right now. breaking overnight. two major disasters. let's get right to your news at 8:00. puerto rico facing a catastrophe as hurricane maria makes landfall this morning with historic fury. we're going to start with gaudy schwartz, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah, good morning, matt. a little earlier you were asking about the storm shelters, the hurricane shelters here. we're in one of them. this is a concrete structure. this is what's going on outside of us. in fact, if we can walk over here, you can see at the corner of that parking lot, the floodwaters are already starting to rise. and let me show you what's going on in here. it's a little bit windy. we are in a huge coliseum, these doors are flying open, flying closed, in fact, just down the hallway, there were some police
8:03 am
officers trying to tie them up with fire hoses and the zip ties but the doors kept flying open. over here, this is a less-protected side. you can see there are already trees that have come down right down here. and we're seeing debris flying through this area. and if we come through these doors, we have to be careful as they have been flying open and there's some debris down there, some of the ceiling panels are starting to fall. but let me show you this shelter, this thing is massive. this is a coliseum right here. and earlier, last night, there were people sleeping here about 300 to 400 people sleeping down there. then the roof started to leak. and if you look up, as the wind starts blowing, you can see the fabric of that roof start blowing. so the roof started to leak, they took a precaution, they moved everybody to the side wing. so a lot of the people are now under bleachers, but again, here in san juan, here in puerto rico, you heard the governor earlier say that about 10,000, a little bit more than 10,000 people evacuated to shelters
8:04 am
like this. this is an island with 3.4 million people. matt and savannah. >> terrifying night, thank you very much. >> we want to know how long that hurricane's going to stay there and where it's headed, hey al. >> yeah, in fact we're watching right now. you can kind of watch the eye start to fill in a bit as it gets inland. and it is just now to the southeast of san juan. it's 15 miles south, southwest of san juan. 150-mile-per-hour winds. it's moving northwest at 10 miles per hour. and we put on some of the current wind gusts here, and you'll see that basically, we're talking about some gusts right now of over 100 miles per hour. you can see all over as you get further to the west, it's a little bit less, but we are looking also at a storm surge that is going to be devastating, six to nine feet generally a little bit less as you get into the northwest corner and the flooding is going to be a big problem with rain up to 25 inches. now, the impacts of this as it goes forward, dominican republic
8:05 am
tomorrow, storm surge six to eight feet. turks and caicos, friday, 125 mile per hour winds, four to eight inches of rain or more. then sunday, by monday morning, it's out into the atlantic. we put the spaghetti plots in now, to give you the ensemble models, and you can see as it continues on up into the midatlantic, we have some of them that actually bring it onshore. so we'll have to continue to watch this. we think steering-wise, that maria will come between the two big areas of high pressure and kind of follow jose out. but if either of these weaken, we have to worry about the system making its way to the midatlantic. so we're going to have to just continue to watch this. we're still five to seven days out from that point, but right now our main concern, folks in puerto rico and then going forward into the turks & caicos and the dominican republic. >> one day at a time. thank you very much. now we turn to that earthquake disaster in mexico. search for survivors and victims growing more desperate this morning in mexico city.
8:06 am
as the death toll soared overnight to more than 200 people. nbc's miguel almaguer has the latest, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. this is the scene of devastation playing out across mexico city today. that massive 7.1 quake bringing this entire region to its knees. we know the death toll stands at about 200. there's no question that number will continue to rise. at this hour, the military is deployed across the region. first responders going building to building, rubble by rubble, to look for anyone that may be alive. first responders are out on the streets asking for silence so they can hear the cries of those in desperate need of help. these first responders will continue to fan out all across this area. about 40% of mexico city is without power, even more of then region is without running water. it is simply a disaster and is still beginning to unfold all across this region.
8:07 am
we'll have more for you tomorrow morning. matt? >> active and tragic scene, miguel, thank you very much. also this morning, president trump's speech to the united nations is reverberating around the world, especially his threat to totally destroy north korea if the u.s. is forced to defend itself. earlier this morning, we spoke with nikki haley, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and asked her to clarify those remarks. >> i think what you saw was the president was responding to north korea's ballistic missile testing, their nuclear bomb test, and their threats that they're going to reduce the united states to ashes, as well as destroy japan. so what you saw was a very firm response to the kim regime that they need to back off, and he the entire international community with him. >> yeah, but the last time the president used words like that, threatening words against north korea was that whole fire and fury thing about five weeks ago. in the time since then, kim jong-un has tested three missiles, two of them flying over japan, and tested a hydrogen bomb.
8:08 am
aren't you afraid that more threats will simply push kim into making a catastrophic mistake? >> look, words are not what's going to push him into making a mistake. what we've seen is no matter whether it's sanctions, whether it's words, whether it's dialogue, we have tried every possible measure, we have reduced all of our diplomatic measures, as much as possible to try and see how we can get to him. the thing is you've got a very paranoid leader who is determined to show his strength, who's determined to threaten his neighbors and threaten the united states, and i think the president has to speak up. he has to speak up on behalf of the american people and on behalf of our allies and our friends. >> ambassador haley defended the stern warning to iran saying that if it does not live up to it's end of the nuclear treaty negotiated during the obama administration, it could become another north korea. >> let's turn now and hoda has a morning boost for us. >> let's lighten it up, kids. imagine you're at a beer garden

8:23 am
them and is being driven towards superficial goals that are unattainable. i said publicly before, i want to ask you that question. are you a force for good or for a force for evil? >> i think we've honestly through our show, we've shown so many much more positive things and the amounts of feedback we get, even from, you know, kendall and kylie's dad transitioning and people not knowing thousand handle and deal with that, they only want to focus on they're superficial, oh, they're wearing make-up, oh they're this. >> i think that's a small percentage. the girls have hundreds of millions of followers. hundreds of millions. and like kylie, for example, she employs 5 or 600 people. >> she's 19. >> she's 19 years old. >> my little sister has an insane business and anyone who says they don't want their kid to be like that and have an insane business at 19 and literally be so successful is insane to me. >> the people who don't love it say my daughter doesn't look like a kardashian.

8:36 am
but look at where you are. especially when you get to a certain age and think about what have i done, what's ahead of me, what's behind me, and mike white who directed the movie, got into an area that you don't see a lot of movies get into, that inner monologue that goes on in your head all the time where you're thinking about where do i stand? and i think social media sort of exacerbates all of that. >> does a successful actor like you look at reality and be like oh, that guy. why is he on the billboard? >> driving down sunset boulevard, looking at all the other actors? >> of course. being an actor, just being an actor, you're constantly not getting cast in things. you could look at everything and go whoa, they didn't pick me for that. the rock's doing that? >> like i never got called. >> i didn't get -- harry styles got called for dunkirk, but i -- it's a part of being, you know, an actor. and constantly say and you have to take a breath and go, doing okay two seconds before i saw the billboard. >> i'm mr. detour today. i'm changing it again. you are coming here in november,

8:39 am
>> before the escape, there's got to be so much to mine there. >> yeah, for how you get to that point where someone is actually, you know, brought in like that. so yeah. >> ben, who is going to play the role of matt lauer? >> you know, we couldn't -- nobody could compare to lauer. so there's no lauer in it in this one. >> he's directed me in the past. >> have you? >> that's right. >> how does he take direction? >> not well. >> shot you like three times. >> i know. >> and i didn't know whether that was because he messed up or i messed up. >> should we clear that up right now. >> it was me. >> november -- >> yes. >> game on. >> bring it, bring your mustache. >> thank you. brad status nationwide this friday. ben's going to be back on our plaza. coming up next, where would you want? our style squad has breaking fall fashion rules. first this is "today" on nbc. >> that was fun. did you know when you buy

8:45 am
>> it's all about the ambulance, mask lin feminine, think about thousand balance it out. >> thank you so much. and to a girl who always sparkles, dylan. >> thank you. i'm joined by the sparky jill martin as well. no white after labor day. i follow that rule. change my mind. >> we can wear white after labor day, it started that there were a lot of reasons, one was in the 1880s it represented your social status. feel free to wear white. we wanted to show you how to shop in the closet. i just added this j. crew necklace because label the of sparkle incorporating the trend and the white. that's how you do it in a simple way. >> now white on white. >> i'm in my winter white suit which i wear to cocktail parties, feel free to wear it, do a burgundy, maybe a little black. then beautiful ashley. you may already have a winter white sweater in your closet, white jeans, wear them in the fall and winter, high boot, brown, black, and then a hat which savannah loves hats. >> i like hats too.
8:46 am
>> and the white button down. >> i love the white button down, maybe wore it to the beach, tied it, wore it around the house. now wear it with a long sequinned skirt or a dressier skirt you have in your wardrobe. i've been wearing this to cocktail parties. it's unique, it's pretty, it's slick and allows you to shop in your closet, wear chaupt is all about that. but having to incorporate things you already own. >> and rewarning the things that you have. >> for more on these looks, head to our today.com/style for our 2017 style heroes as well. coming up next, billie jean king on her match heading to the big screen. but first, this is today on nbc. oh, you brought butch. yeah!

8:50 am
younger members of our team here, dylan, said -- she said, was it a huge deal back then? >> oh wow. >> for people who didn't live through, they may be can't understand how captivating this was. >> no, they can't. it was impossible. it was so emotional. title ix had just been passed the year before, which was very important piece of legislation. because before that, when federal governments db the federal government would give money to the high schools or colleges or -- private or public, didn't matter, it's like they had to do it equally for the first time. that is the essence. they had an afterthought of physical activity. so a woman never got an athletic scholarship until after that. and before that, it was classroom quotas, doctor at harvard for instance, 5% before 1972. >> wow. >> and that's why there were no women doctors and lawyers. and now there's more women in
8:51 am

8:52 am
most distinct memory from the match itself? >> probably when he jumped the net and said i underestimated you. my dad taught my brother and i, my younger brother was a pitcher for the san francisco giants, good slider, my dad emphasized you always respect your opponent, even if you don't like them. and you always -- never, ever underestimate them. so when he said that, i went oh, i can't wait to tell daddy. >> sweet. >> that is so nice. billie jean king, how is this changeup? >> he was really good on the slider. >> i like a good slider. >> a good slider. i love it. >> i'm with you there. >> i want to tell people you're going to be back with hoda and kathie lee. battle of the sexes hits theaters on friday. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc. >> thank you. >> that was fun.
