7:09 am
so they think -- their confidence is sky high and you saw in the clip in peter's piece, she's as confident as i've seen her as a candidate. donald trump is doing what a lot of candidates do. not just donald trump. they lose a debate and they pretend they didn't lose and try to bully their way through it. but there are people around him who know that the message of washington change is a good one. the message of attacking a woman for being overweight or eating too much is not. and he's got to change that. >> let's talk about that because you say that's an oops moment. in the moment he was not as strident as he was the next day on a call-in show where he brought it up by himself. he wasn't asked about alicia machado but he transformed this into a second day story saying she gained so much weight. >> he turned this not into only a second day story but a third day story and a fourth day story. this will be a real test to see -- if he thinks this is going to go away, i think he's

7:11 am
and kellyanne conway came on as campaign manager, he did seem to adjust. do you think that is something that might happen again? >> we're all waiting for the post-debate polls in the battleground states, does he go down. ironically the best thing might be if he does go down. typically the only way he changes course is when the polls show him slipping a little bit. >> by the way, there's nothing wrong with your suit. just wanted to let you know. thank you. >> thank you, guys. now to a developing story overnight, officials are pleading for calm after a deadly officer-involved shooting that happened in southern california. protesters gathered at the scene shopping center in el cajon which is about 30 miles east of san diego. officers were called in over reports that a man was acting erratically. now, police say he was not armed, but they say he pulled an object from his pocket and pointed it in a, quote, shooting stance toward the officers and that prompted one of the officers to open fire. the man died several hours later at a hospital. there are some new developments today in a major

7:44 am
the story. everyone in the case has been thinking about it so much that they're able to step back and tie it to a larger ideas and larger philosophies. >> you spoke to amanda and to raffaele who was her boyfriend. they were pretty open with you. we have another clip, i want to play it right now. >> my heart is beating so fast. you know, like, oh, there's romance now and i kissed her. >> compared to like, hey, baby, like he was super nice and i was completely charmed and, yeah. >> did you find them to be pretty open? that is a side of them i think we haven't seen. >> they were all very open with us. i think they all felt like there had been these different versions of them painted and portrayed in the way the media was covering the story and they wanted the opportunity to talk been themselves in their own words. >> you found some home video and
7:45 am
is before all of this happened, you see this young man who is so vivacious and so full of life and so different from the public image we associate with her. what does she say about how this experience changed her, brian, and is that something you notice in terms of her demeanor. >> we keyed into this idea of accidental select. these people have been caught up in the story. it's not only amanda and raffaele, but it's the prosecutor as has an idea of who they are. they walk around on the street and people recognize them and think that they know them already. one of the moments in the movie i think is interesting is amanda says people recognize me in line at the grocery store and they say i know you. and she says you don't know me. and for us that idea that after eight years of headlines all over the world, it was really, really fascinating. >> i have to say it's not without controversy because although you talked to many players in the case, you weren't able to talk to the kercher family.
7:46 am
who lost her life here. she's the center of the case. did you try to talk to them? and how do you feel about the film without that perspective? >> we did reach out to the kercher family twice directly in 2015 and 2016. we'd still very much like to talk to them if they'd like to talk to us. they made it clear that every time they have to talk about this it's re-examining this wound. we wanted to make sure people in the film remembered this was a tragedy at its core that became this piece of entertainment and this set of caught the world up for the better part of a decade. >> we also reached out to the kercher family who declined to comment. it's an interesting film, takes a look at the media's role in all of this as well. rod blackhurst, brian mcginn, congratulations to you. it starts on netflix tomorrow. we'll send it over to carson. coming up next, the botched proposal and the missing ring that had baseball fans on the edge of their seat.

8:47 am
smoke to give it that smoky flavor but not having to smoke it for hours and hours on end. >> liquid smoke? >> it's a natural condiment. they use the flavorings from the chips. >> coincidentally it was carson's nickname in high school. >> we have some vinegar and coconut sugar, which is a substitute for brown sugar. >> we're going to mix all these in a second. let's get to the process. first you're going to make the rub. >> so this is our coc to go with the smokiness. we have chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. the great thing about this rub, you can put it on chicken and barbecue it or a steak. so we're going to use a couple of tablespoons and we can save the rest in this jar. >> how far in advance to cooking do you put the rub on? >> you can do it right before it, do it a few days and wrap it up and get it in your fridge so they're ready to go into the
8:48 am
pantry for six months. >> we're not using a grill today, we're not using a smoker, but we're going to cook these two different ways. >> yes. we're going to do them in the oven. i love that because we do love to do that during the summer where we can put them on the barbecue but we also like to enjoy them in the winter so we put them low and slow in the oven. they get really nice and tender and we finish them under the broiler to get them kind of crisp on top. i'm using can use tin foil. you make a tighty sealed pouch. then flip it over and this locks in all of the steam which helps get them really, really tender. >> 275 how long? >> three or four hours until they're really coming apart with a fork. >> you go that way, i'll go this way. after 20 or 30 minutes you start to smell those in the house, which is the best part of making ribs. guys, how is it tasting down there? >> great.
8:49 am
>> spicy. >> a little bit of cayenne. >> so barbecue sauce is really easy to make. the store-bought versions have caramel coloring and a lot of sugar so we saved some of our rub and we have tomato puree and a few more spices. we're going to add that together and mix it up and brush the ribs to finish it. they're going to have some fat in them so we can drain that out. this is vinegar, a little bit of that coconut sugar, a teeny bit of the smoke. you know what, if they're too spicy too, you can lead a little cayenne or chili powder out. i have young kids, so i like to make them a little bit less spicy. my husband likes spice. perfect. >> so that gets all mixed up and you brush it on again? >> you brush it on again and pop them under the broiler. kind of like if you were finishing it over a fire grill but it's just a little bit easier. >> how long under the broiler. >> a couple of minutes. you just brush the sauce on and then stick them back in and
8:50 am
like. >> al, you're kind of a rib maven. how would you compare these to what you make at home. >> well, they don't have the natural smokiness that you would get in a smoker, but for what it is being done in an oven -- >> low and slow. >> it's delicious. >> really nice. >> good. >> i love this. here's what they look like when they're done. talk to me about your buffalo bites here. >> gamedays, there's lots of gamedays coming up but we also serve these all the time. they're a substitute for chicken wings but they're buffalo if coconut flour and i make them. i have a dairy-free ranch dressing. i can't tolerate dairy, i have an autoimmune disease so i eat dairy-free for that reason. they're delicious and coated in a buffalo sauce. >> this is great. we can put the recipe up on our website. danielle, thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. >> we appreciate it. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc. >> those don't taste like
