other sports starting to take a knee. from sitting to kneeling, colin kaepernick silence sideline protest now catching the attention of the president. this morning while speaking at the g20 summit president obama said kaepernick was exercising his constitutional right. >> when it comes to the flag and national anthem and the meaning that holds for our men and women in uniform and those who fought for us, you know, that is a tough thing for them to get past. to then hear what his deeper concerns are. >> reporter: kaepernick's protest has spread igniting both anger and support. the local police union threatening to boycott games with the police chief quick to disagree, saying officers will continue to be assigned to
issue with kaepernick's actions he supported his constitutional right to protest. u.s. soccer star megan rapinoe also knelt before her game on sunday saying it was a little nod to the quarterback and everything he is standing for right now. meanwhile, a close look at kaepernick's post show his decision to sit out the anthem followed a dramatic shift in the tone of his posts that started around october of last year. that's when pictures mostly of consistent posts about racial injustice, police shootings and historic quotes and speeches on inequality. the quarterback even taking to instagraham in explanation about the socks depicting pigs in police uniforms saying it was in protest of rogue cops. the sale of his jersey has spiked going from 20th to number one in the nfl store on clearance last season now flying

than they predicted so we can imagine that some of these effects will last through wednesday. >> reporter: long island under threat of storm surges. this a view from the cruise ship anthem of the seas. new jersey to delaware to maryland the dangerous conditions keeping swimmers out of the water even with sunny skies sunday. >> people didn't think it was going to be this nice but as you can see it's not a day to go swimming. saturday's washout the financial hit already stinging on this labor day. the shop owner estimates hermine cost him 80% of business. >> before school starts, so it's a big deal. you can't fight mother nature. >> reporter: virginia hit hard by weekend flooding, and after
still surveying the damage. as the storm's torrential rain led to swollen rivers and new flooding sunday. hermine's aftermath not over. at least two deaths blamed on this storm, one in florida, the other in north carolina. today, some coastal communities are preparing for the possibility of more flooding while other vacationers are trying to make the best of it this labor day. >> gabe in montauk, thanks. >> dylan is in fwi outlook. >> interesting mix of things. the storm is really offshore. it's more of a coast of thing. we're still looking at some of the clouds working in. some of that gusty wind is starting to work in as well as this storm tries to move farther to the north and west. keep in mind, it still has winds of 70 miles per hour so most of the effects of the rain will be felt across nantucket, cape cod, maybe into southern and eastern parts of rhode island. but the storm itself is going to
so, while some areas across the mid-atlantic saw a lot of sunshine this weekend, it's really more of a beach thing. you really need to stay out of the water because now from north carolina all the way into new england, that's where rip currents are going to be dangerous. we do still have tropical storm warnings for parts of long island, also into southern new england. we have the potential of the storm surge w. this storm out here it pushes this water onshore and we skild from about 1 to 3 feet of water above the normal high tide. that's when you coastal flooding and beach erosion. mild to moderate flooding. the winds, most of our windiest conditions with gusts to 45 miles per hour will be across eastern long island and southern new england. we'll still see wind gusts near 25 to 30 miles per hour along the rest of nouj into new york city too. rain is not so much an issue with about an inch and a half. it's weird to talk about this hermine but not so much the
>> problems out there. dylan, thank you. with the election over two months away now labor day marks the start of the final push in the presidential race. kristen welker is on the campaign trail in cleveland. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. hillary clinton will be back out on the campaign trail here in cleveland after taking several days off for fundraising. donald trump will also be here in cleveland today. he's making a new push for african-american voters and also getting new questions about his immigration policy he still supports mass deportations, this race kicking into high gear. with the national polls tightening hillary clinton is ramping up, looking to solidify support in ohio today with tim kaine by her side. she's also sending a team of surrogates to other states, bill clinton, bernie sanders and the vice president. and this morning there is ongoing fallout after the fbi released notes from their 3 1/2
saying more than 3 dozen times she couldn't remember something including some briefings on how to handle sensitive information. and that she didn't know the letter c on an e-mail went confidential. kaine defending her. >> what these notes demonstrate is in very significant detail why the fbi chose not to go forward with any additional proceedings. >> reporter: all fodder for republicans. >> more evidence that hillary clinton is the most dishonest candidate for president. >> reporter: as donald trump makes a push to court african-american voters who prefer clinton on saturday trump visited a black church for the first time. >> i'm here to listen to your messable. >> reporter: protesters said the outreach is too little too late. trump's efforts may also be complicated by one of his top surrogates, mark burns,
bachelors degree from a college where he only attended one semester. this was wrong, i wasn't truthful then and i have to take full responsibility for my actions. meanwhile, trump is facing criticism over his fiery immigration speech from arizona republican senator jeff flake. >> arizona should still be a red state but donald trump with the rhetoric he's used and the characterizations of you know, many of the state's population, have put the state in play. >> reporter: trump firing back at h calling flake very weak, and ineffective. it is a big day for the clinton campaign, secretary clinton is going to be making her maiden voyage on her plane with the press for the first time, you see her, these are live pictures of her shaking hands before she boards the plane. this is in west chester, new york, about to take off for cleveland. now, this comes amid criticism she hasn't been accessible
it is yet another indication that this race is heading into the home stretch. willie, tamron. >> kristen welker, thank you. >> john is the chief washington correspondent for cnbc. good morning. >> happy labor day. >> let's launch in. we see the poll numbers, the headlines. what is the state of the race now in this home stretch? >> hillary clinton has the advantage. the edge has come off of the post-convention lead she built when she had a strong conv but she is ahead not only nationally and most of the battleground states. the onus is on donald trump to make something happen, to change the dynamic and he's got two months. >> where are the opportunities to change that dynamic? if you look at all of the measures of campaigns he is outspent, 10-1. he doesn't have the ground game obviously in swing states that hillary clinton has. how does he change the dynamic? >> well, right willie, he doesn't have the ground game, he doesn't have the quality
has in a popular president barack obama, of former president bill clinton, biden, all the ones kristin mentioned. the one opportunity that donald trump has is the three presidential debates, those start late this month. and donald trump has got to come across in a way that adds to the level of support that he has and stops subtracting and thing likes the argument with jeff flake is the kind of thing that he needs not to do in order to make progress. you look at the month of august for both candidates with hillary clinton, the fbi report, the clinton foundation, with donald trump stumbling over how to reach out to minorities, and also his immigration speech which even his campaign is still split over where he stands on mass deportation. with all of that you hear people say this does boil down to sadly what they see as a lesser of two evils. is that going to be the argument
or other person i should say. >> yes. we have two unpopular nominees who both have significant problems. now, donald trump's problems are just bigger than hillary clinton's. that's why she is ahead. so you see last week the revelation of those fbi interview notes which turned attention to the question about her e-mails, did she tell truth and what couldn't she remember. on the other hand you had a story about donald trump paying a fine for an illegal contribution from his family foundation thats with misreported to the irs. so, everything that hillary clinton, all of the baggage she's carrying, is matched by baggage that donald trump is carrying. >> we are definitely in the home stretch. remember the days when we kept saying there is so much time. a lot of time ahead. >> not much left. >> indeed. thank you so much. something else to watch in the president race this week the first joint candidate event of the general election.
hillary clinton and donald trump to talk national security. and veterans issues during a special commander in chief forum. watch it live on wednesday night, 8:00 eastern on nbc and msnbc. >> breaking overnight rescuers searching for survivors this morning after a structure collapsed in tel aviv. officials say several people are trapped, at least two people killed. more than 20 others injured. members of the military have been called in. the structure was the underground parking lot of an office building that's under construction. no word yet on what caused that collapse. dylan is back with the rest of our forecast today. >> we've got hermine in the northeast and out west we're actually enjoying nice weather, sunshine today from seattle to oregon into california, we do have mountain snow likely across parts of the higher elevations of montana. above 6500 feet. temperaturewise, it's going to be pretty nice.
oregon about -- bedford, about 81, san francisco 65. it's going to be cooler than average especially back through the northern rockies where temperatures could be 10 to 15 degrees below average. elsewhere, besides that mountain snow we have this cold front, this is going to trigger a slight risk of stronger storms especially minneapolis-st. paul and sioux city, looking at the chance of seeing isolated tornados, large hail, damaging wind gusts and your torrential downpours too. it is starting to heat up country with temperatures above average in the 80s and lower 90s. some thunderstorms today likely along the gulf coast, we could see heavier downpours near most of southern louisiana, also southern florida. we'll likely see some of the heavier rain in the northeast we still have hermine sitting out over the water, so even if the sun is shining in maryland and delaware, rip currents are still going to be dangerous. we'll see rain across most of southeast massachusetts.
>> and that's your latest and that's your latest forecast. >> thank you very much. coming up, the parents of the little boy who was killed by an alligator at disney world speak publicly for the first time. >> and one group that cares for chip pan zees using medical research. this is "today" on nbc. door morning, this is "today" on nbc. .

reunion. a man described by some as the worst fan ever ran out and pulled a barrier in front of two cyclists. two of them were going at full speed when they hit it and fell. the man apparently was the father of a rider who felt earlier in the race he was angry that organizers did not stop the race to allow his son to rejoin the field. >> helicopter parent? >> to say the least. up next, a holiday shopping bonanza, where you have filed the best deals this labor day. then o lash. is this ad sending teens the wrong message? and the chances of a sequel to the devil wears prada and why one star says count me out. we will tell you who said that. but first these messages. over there's good. so, how much longer you think this will take? i'll over-explain the process, then give you an unrealistic timeline. i'll nod in agreement so my wife thinks i understand what you're saying. i look forward to questioning your every move. okay, well i'll leave your house in shambles and disappear for six months.

look online. see what other discounts are out there. there are so many places. these are just two of them. >> most in the store also online. jo ling kent great to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> let's head over to dylan for a check of the forecast. >> literally just paid full price for a mattress. not feeling good about that. taking a look at hermine now which is still out over the water and will remain out over the water. it's going to produce more coasff cloudiness thicken up across southern massachusetts. now, we are going to see some rain, nantucket has the best chance of heavier rain. that stretches into martha's vineyard. as far as new york city and most of connecticut, even most of rhode island, you won't see a lot of rain with this system. winds are still up to 70 miles an hour. as it continues on this northwestward track as it gets closer to land, we're still looking at those dangerous rip currents and also beach erosion
possibility we could end up with one to three-foot storm surge closer you are to the center of that storm. so that's why the water is more of an issue that rain falling from the sky. let's look at what's going on across the rest of the country. huge ridge in the jet stream allows temperatures to warm up across the eastern half of the country. in the pacific northwest, temperatures are actually running about 10 to 20 degrees below average and even across the higher elevations across montana above snow. that's how cold that way. anything but cold across indianapolis by wednesday we're topping out around 90 degrees. raleigh lower 90s. new york city will be in the 90s by the time we get to thursday. atlanta stays hot in the 90s and in jacksonville upper 80s and lower 90s. slight risk of stronger storms today through the upper midwest especially minneapolis-st.paul today and again tomorrow. large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes are possible. keep an eye out to the sky out
>> that's your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan. it's time now, are you ready for a little bit of "trending"? i like it. here we go. it's labor day. i am wearing white. we all know where the conversation is certainly headed. so we bring this age old debate up every single labor day. first, brief history lesson in fashion if you will. where did this rule come from?
white was a status symbol. i did not know that. only upper class could afford likely colored clothing to help them stay cool in the summer. after labor day, most people packed away those colors and brought out darker colored garments for the winter. we're still talking about whether white clothing is okay after labor day. thoughts? >> i know you tend to think it's fine to wear whatever whenever. i'ld skirt anymore. it is one of my only skirts that fits right now. >> what do you think? >> i think wear what you like to wear. whatever feels good. you taught me something this morning. it's not about the color. it's about the material. >> you don't want to wear white cotton in november or white linen but white wool, people call it winter white to make themselves feel better. in the end, i mean, this dress actually is a fall dress.
it's a fall dress. >> tamron hall says wear your whites year-round. >> i will judge you. you don't want to wear white jeans. in my opinion, but call anna winter. >> can i wear cutoff jean shorts in the fall? >> only if they're daisy dukes. ben carson experiencing a feeling we all had. the feeling whe you misplaced something. the panic hit and you drop everything to go look for it. that what happened to carson during an interview on cnn when he remembered he didn't have his luggage. check it out. >> you say you learneded a lot of things. what did you take away from today? >> my luggage. hold on. >> okay. looks like dr. carson is going to try to find his luggage and will be right back with us. >> i want that to be my ring tone. >> it's a serious and fair
>> panicking feeling when you realize you left something some place else. i don't have my purse. >> once he determined his luggage was safe and sound, he carson came back to finish the interview. good for him. wells fargo released this brochure to promote the upcoming teen financial educational day. the brochure features a girl with a caption a ballerina yesterday and an engineer today and one says shame on you from discouraging careers in the arts. i did and i couldn't be happier. wells fargo released a statement saying wells fargo is deeply committed to the arts and offer our sincere apology for ads promoting our teen financial education day. they were intended to celebrate the aspirations of young people and fell short of that goal.
making changes to the ad campaign. what say you? >> this is modern rhythm. something happens. a group of people are offended by it and that company has to apologize put something on their twitter page. i think it will continue. >> what do we count as a group of people? >> that's the thing. >> something can trend on twitter and be 1,000 people talking about it. just the time of day. >> that's a good point. time of day when these things are popular. >>ur pursue. finally, we have said it once but we're not afraid to say it again. omer phelps, son of michael phelps is the best. in his newest instagram video, he proves why. >> i like it. >> look at the smirk.
boomer has racked up more than 300,000 views with that video. i love that kid. >> i like that. all right. dylan, how about "pop start." >> let's get started with leslie jones. after the "snl" actress' account was hacked, she parted ways with the social media site but now jones made her return tweeting on sunday thanks to my fans and friends. i'm so okay. really. i will always be and i always get back up. jones made the return to twitter just in time for her birthday which is this wednesday so a happy early birthday to leslie and good for her. now to "the devil wears prada." it's a classic to many. it's based off of a book and since the movie's release, she's written sequels fueling rumors that perhaps a movie sequel would follow.
hollywood reporter, tucci says there was a real substance to it. a truly great american studio movie in every way. sometimes it's best to just leave things. if you try to redo it, let's face it, there are few sequels that actually work. at least for tucci it sounds like it won't be any time soon. and schwarzenegger's son is taking the famous actor to task. it first came out in 1984 and made arnold schwarzenegger an icon. more than 30 years later, reprising his father's role in the film. the 18 year old created this bad to the bone scene from the movie. take a look.
>> can't let you take a man's wheels, son. you'll have to get off or i'll have to put you down. >> wow. >> that look. >> copied dad's every move frame by frame. he's a spitting image. that helps also. >> crazy. >> all right. thank you. now to a celebrated chef's fight with food. for two decadesha plate tasting each dish. that brought weight gain. >> i often liken it to a machine or a car. if you put in bad fuel into your body, you're going to get bad results. being healthy is about balance. i love to eat everything that everybody else does.
spicy food. thai food. in 2007, i weighed 347 pounds. i was approaching 40 years old. i had to make a change. one of the real things is not making drastic changes. my journey was -- as chefs you are constantly tasting and every spoonful is probably 50 calories with two or three grams of the fat and over the course of 25 about how many calories you taste without sitting down and having a proper meal. for me when it comes to cutting calories, it's more about heavy vegetables, light protein, extra virgin olive oil. it's not about tasting. it's about how much you taste. drinking whole milk again. drinking less milk. whole grain bread with tuna and not mayonnaise. eating less after 8:30, 9:00,
anymore. lots of water and tea and walking between the restaurants and getting exercise and i try now to do between 12,000 and 14,000 steps a day. small changes like this in the span of six years, seven years, has really turned into about 125 pounds. i know that i wouldn't be doing what i am today if i was still at the weight that i was. i was on good things. >> he looks good. he feels good. i ate at one of his restaurants last weekend, my man can cook. >> i wondered about people in the culinary industry. you have to try it. >> part of the job. just ahead, we're kicking off a week of guinness world records on the plaza with a guy who takes putting on pants to new levels. okay. wait until you see this.
your advice. happy birthday, beautiful. so good. coming up, the start of our special week-long series break it today. this guy is about to attempt to get back his guinness world record title. this is an actual record. longest backflip into a pair of pants. >> i could do it if it was a skirt. >> how do you know you could do >> and someone broke his record so it's a thing. >> a battle. six things you probably have in your home that e.r. doctors refuse to keep in theirs. >> first, dylan has a check of the weather. windy but not as bad as we thought. >> windier across long island and southeastern massachusetts closer to the center of hermine which is still just sitting there. we are looking at more or less the effects along the coast. dangerous rip currents. even if the sun is out especially down through virginia into north carolina up into
are still very dangerous. keep that in mind. closer to areas like nantucket and across cape cod, that's where we'll have a best chance of rain and clouds today. also a little windy up to about 20 to 30 to 40-mile-per-hour wind gusts possible. we're looking at that cold front that will produce strong storms true minneapolis-st.paul lingering into tomorrow and bring more heavy in, damaging winds and also the possibility of some large hail. it's warming up across the eastern half of the country. temperatures in the 80s and 90s the desert southwest. we have a tropical system that's going eventually make its way up from the south.
>> that's your latest forecast. willie? >> thank you very much. to hidden health hazards you may use every single day. nbc news medical contributor dr. natalie azar is here with six things emergency room doctors refuse to keep in their own homes. always good to see you. happy labor day. we call these one pill killers. >> just so you know, we reached around the country and asked emergency room experts, what are their big things? these are things they see in their emergency room. if you have medicine used to treat heart disease, used to treat diabetes, blood pressure,
pill of these medicines can harm a child to the point of being lethal. we talk about opioid use. when you have medicine that you want to get rid of, put it in something that no one else will want to get to. put it in a plastic baggy and dispose of it in the garbage can. the f and your local government have give back sites. don't put this in garbage can. >> you are taking away my ramen noodles. >> two main reasons why. one is the actual weigh that this is constructed. it has a very narrow base and it's very, very tall. so it tips easily. just structurally that way. the second thing about the noodles themselves, they are very, very sticky.
noodles will get stuck on them and can cause severe enough burns that the child requires surgery. so it's not that you have to get rid of the soup but perhaps manufacturing look for something with a wider base or more importantly keep it out of reach of children. >> keep them in college dorm rooms which is where we need them. >> so one big important thing for viewers, this has nothing to do with the brand of high chair. all high chairs are a culprit . you want to -- you have your baby starting to eat table food. you want your child to feel like they're part of the family so you push the high chair up close to the table. what the little baby can do is use his or her legs and push off against the edge of the table and falls back. apparently you would not imagine how many emergency visits come from children under the age of one who hit their head and get a concussion. number one, have them further
onto the table. we always had that. and most importantly, children can crawl out so make sure your child is strapped in correctly. >> pull it back so they can't reach. >> i don't have one of these in my house. i'm glad now. one of the most hazardous things you can have in the kitchen. look how sharp this blade is. cuts and makes a beautiful it comes with a safety guard. put your food in that and use it. second thing is cleaning it. food can get stuck. it dulls the blade. food can harbor bacteria. one of the biggest reasons people come into the emergency room for lacerations and cuts on their hands. >> button batteries. i get this one. >> kids love to put things in their mouth.
and want to put a button battery in your mouth. it's very bright. it looks exactly like maybe a piece of candy. what makes this different, let's say a child swallows a coin like a penny. it's likely going to go down and they'll pass it and they should be okay. what happens with these is that the acid from the batteries can erode through a child's esophagus in as little as two hours. this is a real medical emergency. look at all of the things where you find button batteries. again, please keep these things out of reach of children and way up high. >> one more wave seen a lot in the news lately. detergent pods. >> over and over again. what most people will say is regular detergent is so diluted with water is not dangerous and a little kid can't get detergent in their mouths. look at the color. a child will go for this. extremely toxic because it's so concentrated. children obviously can have gi
a walk in the park for raymond butler. not only is he a self-taught acrobat, he competed on "american ninja warriors" and holds three guinness world record titles. he achieved the first one in 2013 on trutv with the largest backflip into a pair of trousers but his record was broken later that year. today h title for longest backflip into a pair of trousers with a distance of 8 feet 6 inches. hold onto your pants. raymond is here eager to get started along with rob, the official guinness world records adjudicator. we're proud. we are proud of the week we had. another week to impress our viewers. >> another week to celebrate the

>> all right. now, he gets one more trial at this. just a little off. he's right there. >> under the rules he gets another attempt. >> he can have another attempt. that's correct. >> two attempts. >> that's right. >> outstanding. >> his record was broken last year by someone else? >> 2013. the guinness world record. >> he wants some crowd participation. okay. >> does that count?
>> this is good. i can confirm this is a new guinness record! amazing. >> there you go. >> how do you feel? >> i feel amazing. >> what went wrong the first time? >> a little bit >> so you made the adjustment. >> made the adjustment and prayed. >> so you asked the crowd to get involved. you wanted the chants. how does that help you? >> it's just the energy. i feel off everybody's energy. >> how did you feel when you heard your original record had been broken? >> it came as a surprise. i thought i had it. actually, someone broke it. it's game time.
>> that was incredible. what becomes of these pants now? >> these are my trophy pants. >> congrats to your team. that is so awesome. we'll go for another record tomorrow. meanwhile, up next, 20-minute meals to get you in and out of the kitchen in a flash so you'll have time to properly put on your pants.
i'm telling you, when tomatoes are in season, we are using them every way possible. i've got to tell you, this is my favorite recipe. >> i never had tomato pie. >> honey, you're life will be changed after this segment. we'll start with homemade crust. it's five ingredients. >> when you tell me homemade crust, it doesn't sound fast. >> it's scary but the deal is you can't get out of the parking your premade pie crust in the time that it's going take to you make this. so what we're going to do, one of the things we always want to make sure is we're going to mix butter and flour in here together really well. now, because you're so hot because you know you are, you don't want to overmix that butter in because you'll lose your pretty layers so you literally stick your fingers in the ice water for a few minutes. get them really cold and then work it in so that it doesn't overwork it.
butter? >> as cold as possible. you want your hands to be cold because i don't want them to melt it. >> i'll do that a little bit. >> this is great trick. once you have your dough all rolled out and absolutely beautiful, it's give to move interest from here to here. we're going to roll it onto the rolling pin. look at there. then we'll roll it back out. >> that's beautiful. so we'll press it down just a little bit. it's bigger than our pan which is not a big deal. >> we'll cut it off. we'll come around and cut. you could tear it. not a big deal. this is crimping. this is not one of my favorite things is crimping the crust. it's a simple technique. work on that. this is going to be your big fun thing for the whole day. >> this is where a child in the
see the space. you practice at home. >> now we have our mixture. this is going to make the toppings for this fantastic tomato pie. we have mayonnaise. parmesan. and we have sharp cheddar. you could use mozzarella. any cheese you like. we'll mix this really well. that will be the topping. now, with our tomatoes, the one is they're going to release a lot of moisture. we want to drain them. because otherwise we're not going to have tomato pie, we'll have tomato soup and that's not what we want. we'll add our salt. and let that start to drain at the bottom. that will make the difference in the world. >> you drained your tomatoes. >> now we have our gorgeous tomatoes and we'll start layering. i love using all of these different colors. that just makes it so much more
>> start crumbling the goat cheese in the middle. if you don't like it, you don't have to use it. you can you the zucchini in here. eggplant in here. or if you want to do more mozzarella. we have to have some of this fabulous basil. >> i'm makin a mess. >> you're doing really well. >> we're going to add more pepper. and then we'll add more and then we do a beautiful big thick topping. you can see it right here after it's been cooked of that wonderful creamy sauce. >> can i try? >> absolutely. this is the mile high pie made famous in new orleans by one of my favorite hotels in the world which just reopened. they just remodeled and made it absolutely incredible. and so this is an ice cream pie.
