will drive this holiday. david begnaud is out with them in miami. he's on interstate 95. one of the nation's busiest highways. okay, david, let's hear it. >> gayle, good morning. we're moving at about 20 miles per hour right now. and i-95 headed south toward miami. and, look, it's gridlock any day of the week but you factor in the busiest travel day of the year and that's why it settled in with a hot cup of tea. you were mentioning this being the busiest travel day. gas prices are some of the lowest they've been in a decade. that is why more than 40 million people are expected to drive this thanksgiving. more than 1 million, a million more than last year. according to the navigation app wave, which you may be very familiar with, if you're going to leave this morning, do so before 10:00 a.m., and try not to get on the road after 4:00 p.m. those are their travel tips. consider this if you're in miami, let's sigh, and you were to get on the road at 5:00. if you had a three-hour drive to grandmother's house, you could tack on an additional hour

8:05 am
to move forward and doesn't want to hurt the clintons. and after promising to cancel the paris climate accords, mr. trump said he's going to, and i quote, take a look at it. many of the nation's largest retailer are gearing up for black friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year. but dozens of stores are taking a stand against opening on thanksgiving day. costco, home depot, nordstrom and t.j. maxx are among the retailers that will be closed. target will be open on thanksgiving at 6:00 p.m. and for the first time ever, the retailer will offer 15% off nearly everything online and in stores from sunday through cybermonday. brian cornell is target ceo. welcome back to the table. >> good to be back. >> just illuminate this idea of why some choose not to and some choose to stay open? >> we spend a lot of time talking to our guests, the shoppers who come to target and we listen to them really carefully and they told us they enjoy the experience. so we'll open up at 6:00 p.m. last year we had millions of
8:06 am
shoppers in our stores. and we expect the same experience this year. >> from 6:00 p.m. to when? >> all night long. it is a big event. we see families turn out, we see brothers and sisters kind of reuniting in our stores. we try to meet their needs. >> other than high volume shopping and what that does to your bottom line, is it a time at thanksgiving in a sense to test out new ideas, to be able to see if you can penetrate the online market that amazon does so well at? >> well, the online component is really important to us. and we have been investing for years to build out our capabilities. it is a combination of a great store experience, and a great digital experience and bringing those together during the holidays is critically important to us. >> how important has cybermonday become? i know this new initiative is -- is in part tied to what it has meant. >> it is a big event. we have taken a different approach this year. we have combined both a store experience and a digital experience, both on sunday and
8:07 am
monday. 15% off on basically our entire stock to drive even more attention to both our digital experience, but also to get people into our stores. >> here is the thing they say about target, is it still okay to call it target? >> it sure is. >> you go into your store, i'll spend $25, you walk out $200, $300, you spend more than you intended. don't you hate when that happens? >> i love when that happens. >> it happens a lot. you're expanding your stores to downtown areas, to college campuses because -- >> we're following the consumer. what we're seeing across the country is consumers moving back to city centers, whether here in new york, or in philadelphia, boston, chicago, so we're just simply following the consumer. as we talked to them, they said, one of the things they love to see is a target in their neighborhood. and these are really neighborhood stores. we opened up here in tribeca in manhattan, just early in october, the store has been an incredible success for us. and it is people in the local
8:08 am
neighborhood that are there sometimes multiple times in a week. i was there two weeks ago, and i talked to one of our guests and she said, since we opened, she had been there three times. well, only open for a couple of days. coming back again and again. >> is it a long uphill battle to compete online with amazon? >> charlie, we don't think it is. we think physical stores still matter. so as we sit here today, we think about retailing in the u.s., 90% of the business is still done in a physical store. now, most consumers, they're starting with a smartphone in their hand. it is how they decide where to shop, where shopping lists are held, they still like the physical experience. we need to do both. we need to make sure we have a very compelling reason to come to our stores and when you're there, make it really easy, make it inspiring. and also make sure you can shop online and pick up in one of our stores. so that's where the smaller urban stores are really important. you can order online, and conveniently pick up your
8:09 am
package same day, when you want to do it. >> is there an advantage to shopping on thanksgiving as opposed to coming on friday? i'm talking about your employees, you're going to be working too. >> i'll be out there in stores. >> is there an advantage to coming if you come thanksgiving day? a better deal or just the experience of you're there thanksgiving day? >> we have some great deals for this big thanksgiving and black friday weekend. for first time ever, we'll offer a 50 inch 4k tv for under $250. there is really compelling offers. >> 50 inchs? >> 50 inches. 5-0. >> made by whom? >> yes, good question. made by whom? >> great quality, 4k. we want to add excitement, we want to make sure it is an exciting experience and people love to shop. they turn out. so i'll be out there, our leadership team will be out in stores. i appreciate the fact that our team members want to work on thanksgiving. >> what allowances are made for them? >> they get time and a half for those days, but, josh, they're excited to come out.
8:10 am
it is a fun experience. we do a great job. really when target is at its best. holiday periods is when we really shine. it is why i'm so proud of the brand and the team. they get fired up. they want to make sure they offer a great experience. and we go get great feedback from the shopper. we love coming to target. they keep shopping. >> i know. >> some consumer reporters make the argument that the bargains on black friday are not as big as they expect. >> charlie they get better and better. i look at the kind of offers we're bringing on apple products, on different products, but we bring great value. we know this is a -- >> what you're seeing on black friday, they're really significant bargains you cannot find the week before or the week after? >> they're sensational deals. >> on everything in the store. 15% you're going to offer -- >> on sunday and monday, it is. both in store and online. as opposed to seeing cybermonday, we made it both store and -- >> what should i be looking for?

a look at the science of overeating from the appetizer and drinks and the trimmings. a typical holiday meal could top 4,500 calories! that is more than twice the average daily recommended total. the dinner could contain nearly 3 1/2 times the suggested fat and equals to three sticks of butter. our dr. david agus joins us to tell us about this downer. i think this is a thing of beauty. you're saying think about this before you indulge. >> gayle? >> david? >> so the science of overeating is pretty wild. something that makes u.s. hungry and leptin saying we are full. we eat more because of that. but that science is important because what happens is as your stomach gets sxanexpanded assit the stomach and it could push up and you can get acid reflux and indigestion and that is what you feel.
8:19 am
the key is moderation. >> a quarter of all that would be okay? >> yeah. i'm not here to say how much you should eat, charlie. >> how big is your stomach? >> your stomach is four cups. when you eat more and more your stomach gets expanded and the key is at some point to stop. within two hours of a meal, thanksgiving, 400% increase of heart attacks. you shunt blood elsewhere to the body and that shunting of blood restricts blood to the heart. >> you can't pick it up early which is to say fasting. laying off -- >> or saving room. >> yeah. no saving room. >> no. >> don't eat on wednesday so you can eat on thursday. >> a myth that doesn't work. eat breakfast. drink water before you eat and plan activity and running around at thanksgiving. don't do within an hour or two after the meal.
8:20 am
the average meal takes an hour or two to be degraded in your stomach. when you're eating a large meal you're talking five, six hours. when you exercise after that it shunts blood from your stomach and why you get nauseous. >> if you eat half of that, is that okay? what is so wrong with one day indulging? when you think about it. >> listen. the big scheme of things nothing is wrong as long as it's not too much. if you look at the data, our lowest weight in the country is in october. starting in november, literally at thanksgiving, there is a rise in weight until around january 1. then it takes five months on average for the country to get back to where they started! so if you practice a little bit of moderation these five weeks it will pay off significantly in the long run. >> what about if you eat half of that? >> we are looking for half! >> you have this half and you have this half. the other interesting myth is

8:37 am

trick? everybody does. >> another psychology thing. everything is priced at $49.99. that is $50. let's not kid ourselves. >> david poguee another winner. it's "basics money." thanksgiving can stress the strongest family bonds. >> what we don't want at this table is anyone building a wall of mashed potatoes to divide this family. >> absolutely. but we can agree to disagree on certain things. >> ahead, mo rocca's guide

there a lot of tension out there right now. if you're planning a family get together a new service i think you should know about. >> using your phone you can use a professional moderator to manage your meals like wolf blitzer and megyn kelly. >> he should build a wall. they are coming across by the millions. >> hillary should be -- >> she won the popular vote. >> no one can get away with this! >> if we could just please get back to the original question. could someone please pass the salt?
8:43 am
>> mrs. douglas, uncle. that is funny. ellen degeneres with help from wolf blitzer. a record high 77% of america thinks the united states is divided on the most important values. some families are sure to find themselves split on different ends of the political spectrum. mo rocca found one of those famlies and talked with them about the election results in a dry run of a thanksgiving dinner. this should be good, mo. >> good to see you. 42-year-old victor is from philadelphia and voted for hillary clinton. his mother, 66-year-old fran bauer, lives in ocean county, new jersey, and voted for donald trump. this family ordinarily does not talk about politics but this campaign and election were different and that is add ago whole other thick layer of stress to this thanksgiving. how are holiday meetinals for y family? >> particularly pretty calm

because we avoid any conversations that would get too stressful. we are in an unusual situation which my wife and i tend to vote democrat and everybody that comes to my house votes republican. >> reporter: you're outnumbered. will you gloat a little bit? >> i won't do that. a verse in the bible says work at piece and edification and that is me. >> reporter: you're taking a very new testament approach? >> yes. >> reporter: but if you're pushed, you can go old testament on that? >> i can! listen. my husband and i have researched a lot about the clintons and hillary and no way were we going to invite -- vote for her. >> reporter: alex carter, columbia law professor and professional mediator joined us at the thanksgiving table to mediate. >> are you recommending that people eliminate politics from the conversation? >> mo, this is a very unusual thanksgiving. i wouldn't recommend that
8:45 am
anybody set a blanket rule if it doesn't work for their family. >> victor, you have two children. >> we have two children. the other side of this is i worry about teaching them a bad lesson which is that, you know, we, as a family, can't get together and have a level-headed conversation about important topics without it going off the rails. >> reporter: so why don't we venture gingerly into a discussion about the election? >> sure. >> reporter: so i'll start. boy. that was kind of a surprise when trump took wisconsin! >> when trump took pennsylvania, i knew it was all over. >> my daughter, she is pro-trump. you know? she was very happy and i talked with her and i didn't talk to victor about it because i knew who he veted for and i didn't want to say, yea, trump won! >> well, that was very kind of you. >> fran, what is one thing you would like victor to know? >> well, that trump wasn't my
8:46 am
first choice. we didn't even look at the news much before the election because we were so tired of hearing it. and, you know, the way he talks, trump, he comes across sometimes in a very arrogant way! but i knew i couldn't vote for hillary clinton so that is why i voted for trump. >> reporter: what do you want to say right now? >> she doesn't like listening to donald trump but now she has four years of listening to donald trump. >> i know. it's true. >> i would also say that i understand how she feels because my vote was a vote against donald trump. >> reporter: they share that then that they hate the other candidate? >> yes. the only thing i would say is i, as a christian, i'm praying that he surrounds himself with good advisers. >> she just brought religion into this now! we started with politics and she brought religion in. >> we are ready for the trifecta. i feel if somebody insults the food, we will have completed the mission. >> reporter: your response?
8:47 am
>> well, i think as far as religion goes, my mom and i are on the same page, actually. i just have a hard time connecting donald trump to anything referabling christianity. >> both of you have a strong christian faith in common. it's just where that faith leads you politically that is different. >> j>> reporter: back to politics. we asked fran and victor to try a conversation about an issue that dominate the campaign trail. >> mom, do you think it's a good idea to build a wall between mexico and the united states? >> there needs to be better control in keeping illegal immigrants out. i'm not saying that the wall is the best way. but there does need to be something. >> it should come in legally as our ancestors did. >> i agree. >> and as your wife's parents did. >> my wife's parents were born in india.
8:48 am
>> reporter: the immigration issue is one that is personal for you also? >> we don't want at this table is anyone building a wall of mashed potatoes to divide this family. >> right, absolutely. but we can agree to disagree on certain things. >> reporter: seems like always an effort and comes naturally to find common ground. >> it does. it makes me wonder, mo, whether you all will be the mediators on thanksgiving. >> i think the real solution here is ban your sister from the dinner. we have established some ground rules so i think it's probably time to invite the rest of the family in. who is everyone voting for in 2020? according to our mediator, if you're in a house divided, make a game plan ahead of time and if things get heated, remember, we are family. blood is thicker than water. and it stains! you don't want to get it all over the table cloth! >> it does. they were pretty civil, considering what i expect will
