7:03 am
across the board. computers at airports, website, and phone centers all affected. southwest is warning passengers today to arrive two hours early and print boarding passes at home before coming to the airport. as the airline uses backup systems to check travelers in. you might call it flying the frustrated skies. >> it's poor customer service. it's poor information. >> the lines are not moving. >> lots of people. lots of luggage. nobody knows where they're going or what they're doing. >> reporter: from coast to coast, miles of long lines at airports including nashville, phoenix, and scores stranded in las vegas. one woman describing a three mile line with a four hour and counting wait before even reaching the check in counter. >> there's elderly people that have had to sit out in the heat. >> reporter: in los angeles, passengers were stuck outside in sweltering triple digit temperatures. police at lax passing out water and setting up canopies for shade.

7:05 am
and is not tipping his hand. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is in vegas this morning. >> good morning to you from vegas. all the democrats except for joe biden here tomorrow night. bernie sanders, hillary clinton going to put chips on the table. biden may be taking a gamble by not showing up at all. this morning president obama is defending his former secretary of state saying while she made a mistake, there is no thaefevide that her private e-mail system was used to hide something. >> reporter: president obama speaking out on "60 minutes" about hillary clinton's e-mail controversy. >> did you know about the use of the private e-mail server? >> no. >> while she was secretary of state? >> reporter: saying while it's been gin flchltned up for polit gain, she should have handled herself better. >> she needs to answer the questionses for the american public. this is not a situation in which america's national security was in danger.
7:06 am
>> i did not e-mail any -- >> reporter: still, the republican party isn't letting up. debuting this new ad. and the head of the first democratic debate tomorrow night, much of the focus is on the man who won't be on stage but his podium is there just in case. vice president joe biden, 2500 miles away spending the weekend in delaware, mowing a run with his family. president obama praising his vp but taking no position on 2016. >> i'm going to let joe make that decision. >> reporter: without biden in the race, a new poll shows the majority of democrats support clinton over bernie sanders but add biden and that lead shrinks. fresh off another round of massive rallies on "meet the press," he previewed a likely criticism of biden as a flip-flopper. >> people have to contrast my consistency and my willingness to stand up to wall street and big corporations. >> reporter: and touted his own left wing credentials. >> are you a capitalist? >> no, i'm a democratic socialist. >> reporter: as for the
7:07 am
republicans, donald trump retaining the frontrunner doubt the billionaire will be his successor. >> apparently donald trump is keeping score of how president obama did last night. he called that performance in his words, "terrible, sad, and anythingtive negative." great, everyone said i did much better than -- excuse me, i did much better on "60 minutes" last week than president obama did. i agree. he has an excuse to talk right now. he's up six points in that latest national poll. that is over ben carson. that triples every other rival. back to you. >> all right. thank you. mark halpern is managing editor of bloomberg politics. good morning you to. >> good morning. >> big week for the democratic side of the presidential race. does a strong performance tomorrow night help hillary clinton more or does it help bernie sanders more? >> it helps bernie sanders more. he is still introducing himself
7:08 am
to the american people. if he shows himself to be up there and able to be president, able to stand toe to toe with her that, helps him a lot. he said to chucked to he's not a capitalist. i think hillary clinton people are going to look at that and a lot of other things sanders said and say do you want this to be our general election candidate, a guy saying i'm not a capitalist? >> he's going to hit her hard on her record. flip-flops over the last decade or. so how potent a weapon is that for bernie sanders? >> my sense is he won't hit her hard unless the moderateors insist on it. he wants to tell people what the mess sage is. the reality is baked in the cake. she gets tough scrutiny. eight years ago in an october debate in philadelphia, item russert moderating, she made one mistake at the end of the debate on driver's licenses for people here illegally and it was a huge controversy for weeks. she knows the margin of error is zero for her, unlike for all the other candidates. >> and with the e-mail scandal
7:09 am
still in the headlines, the president weighed in on that interview on "60 minutes" and said she should have held her stoefl self to a higher standard but national security was never at risk, saying what hillary clinton's been saying. >> you could argue he did help her out a bit saying national security is not an issue. hard to know how he's reached that determination when the fbi is still investigating. on the other hand, we know from reporting the president, vice president, other people at the white house are not pleased with the way she handled her e-mail. i think the president kind of didn't bail her out completely by saying this is serious, it should be looked at. this is something she has to explain more to the american people. i don't think the people of the clinton campaign looked at what he said yesterday and thought that was the best possible thing president obama could have said. >> you mentioned the vice president. let mend the let me end there. joe biden is going to be watching this democratic debate in his living room at home or somewhere like that. what will he be looking to see
7:10 am
or hear that will have a major impact on his decision about running for this -- in this race? >> i think this is a three act thing for him. he'll watch the debate for sure, see shou show she perform. i want to see how she does with the benghazi hearing going up in a week when she goes face-to-face with benghazi and the e-mail and her general public impression. it comes back to not what happens here in vegas tomorrow night. it's what's happening in his heart and his talks with his family. he spent the weekend with him. he still has to decide if he has it in him to run. then he can think about the political implications and tactics and strategy. >> mark, thank you very much. >> thanks. >> mark said one issue expected to come up tomorrow night will be the on going investigation into the benghazi embassy attack. hillary clinton is squarely at the center of that controversy. but now she's getting support from an unlikely source, a republican investigator on that house committee investigating
7:11 am
benghazi. nbc's andrea mitchell also has the latest from vegas. >> good morning. indeed, both new charges come against the republican led benghazi kbht to cocommittee to a republican former staff member who had been fired. >> reporter: increased scrutiny this morning of the congressional committee investigating benghazi. after selling claims from one of the committee's former investigators, a career intelligence analyst. air force major bradley publiska. >> this is a partisan investigation. i don't believe it was set up to go after hillary. >> reporter: he was fired in june says he was forced out because he resisted pressure to target clinton. >> as i stated, hillary clinton has a lot of xblang explaining . we don't have to hyper focus on hillary clinton. >> it's a damn lie. >> reporter: in an exclusive interview with nbc news, trey gowdy denies his claims saying
7:12 am
he was fired for poor performance. >> he was a lousy employee. and that was evidenced by the fact he mishandled classified information and he wouldn't do what his supervisors instructed him to do. >> reporter: his attorney denies he mishandled classified information. and he says he plans to file a lawsuit charging that the committee's leadership was "not interested in revealing the truth about the benghazi attacks but rather they intended to use the select committee on benghazi for their party's political gain" and he claim the committee retaliated against him for taking leave for several weeks to go on active duty in germany. if true, that would violate a federal law. the dispute could be a life line for hillary clinton as she prepares for tomorrow night's first democratic debate. their calling the allegations explosive against a committee investigation that was already under fire after majority leader kevin mccarthy suggested that the committee was created to damage hillary clinton
7:13 am
politically. matt and hod snacha? >> great time of the year for sports fans. you have hockey and football and baseball playoffs here in new york. a lot of people still talking about a controversial play that ended up costing the new york mets their shortstop for the rest of the playoffs. all right. saturday night tight game against los angeles dodgers. mets shortstop rubin tejada tagged second base to get the out on chase utley. utley slid wide of the base and over tejada taking his legs out from under him. several mets players said the play was dirty and the replay clearly shows utley did not start the slide until he was almost past second base. add injury to insult, tejada broke his leg on the play. he'll miss the rest of the playoffs. utley apologized and said he was just trying to break up the play and not hurt tejada. so dodgers went on to win that game. >> welcome new developments.
7:14 am
major league baseball announced that utley will be suspended for his illegal slide for the next two games of the best of five series which, by the way, is tied at a game apiece. so now there is a question that some people are asking. sometimes when something like this happens, there is retribution from another team. so you have to wonder what might come up. >> mat harvey is an emotional pitcher. the question is, is he going to throw high and tight? >> do they do that? >> oh, yes, they do. that yes. all the umpires are going to be waiting for something like that. so harvey throws a questionable pitch, will he get ejected? and do you want that to happen? by the way, if you look at the slide again, i think it was out of bounds. he was out of the base pad. it was a late slide. part about him hitting him when he his back was turned, i think he starts the slide before he sle sees that tejada spins around. i don't think he meant to hurt
7:15 am
him. >> what do you think the two games, fair? >> it's dangerous play. i really do. >> think about football? >> you can't take out a catcher any longer. to break up the double play and take out the shortstop, i mean, the whole thing is dirty. >> i don't think it's a question of whether matt harvey will throw a high spite pitch, it's when. >> and how high and how tight. >> right. >> natalie has breaking news about an american being neld he iran. >> "the washington post" reporter has been convicted after an espionage trial that ended two months ago. it's not clear though what specific charges he was convicted of. the newspaper calls the verdict an outrageous injustice. the american-iranian reporter has been in prison for more than 14 months, often under harsh conditions. in afghanistan, a witness says a helicopter that crashed sunday killing five nato service

8:31 am
>> it's the entire song. >> by the way, she is asking and she has been tackling some health issues. she's been a very busy woman. >> all right. >> also here this morning, another very strong woman, gabriella union, she plays a character she calls a hot mess on the popular show "being mary jane." we love her much glad to have her here today. >> a lot to get to before we get to any of it. let's get a check of the weather from dylan. >> it warmed up in the last half hour. it could be the dancing. whatever, it's getting warmer out here. highs to top out in the mid 70s today. it's ahead of the cold front that is going to trigger a couple scattered showers and storms, especially across western kentucky and tennessee. this cold front is cooling things off in the northern plains. it went from 97 degrees in fargo yesterday, down to highs only in the 50s. barely hitting 60 degrees. in the southwest, hot today. the temperatures will start cooling off. in the northeast, we'll see that cold front trigger a couple of
8:32 am
showers, especially across new england and then that's it with the warm temperatures. it's going to start cooling off and stays much, much cooler and more fall like as we head into th good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. sunny columbus day. bright sunshine and mild. in the 70s this afternoon with just a light breeze out of the south at 3 miles an hour to 8 miles an hour later today. tomorrow, ditch the sunglasses and grab the umbrella. showers later in the morning. turns cooler wednesday and thursday with highs in the 60s. thursday morning down to 46 degrees. chillier this weekend after another round of showers friday. hoda? >> thank you so much. gabrielle union is the hit of show "being mary jane." she plays a successful news anchor struggling to piece her life back together after the devastating car accident in last
8:33 am
season's cliffhanger. good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm going to start off by saying when i walked in here, the first thung i saing i said have not aged. they did the side by side pictures from when you were 26 -- how old are you now? >> i'll be 43 in a couple weeks. >> come on! >> yeah. >> is there any secret or just good living? >> i've been pretty hard on my body. i just have a good time. >> you do? >> i do. i don't know, and oily skin. you know, when you're a teenager, you hate it. then when you get older -- >> your show "being mary jane," you once described your character as a hot mess. is she continuing? >> nothing has changed. nothing has changed. in seasons one and two, she had her career to fall back on or a man or her friends. and we pick up where she had this catastrophic car accident caused by overhearing her best friend and the love of her life, you know, talking about them
8:34 am
hooking up. >> stop it. >> yeah. >> so she doesn't have -- like after the car accident, she can't work. she doesn't have her best friend and she doesn't have her man. >> it's all over. when you think about your real life, it's so contrasting. you're newly married for a year to dwyane wade. what is that like? married to a younger hot man. >> kind of how you just made it sound. like hot. delicious. like it doesn't get old. every day he gets out of bed and like, yes, thank you jesus! he looks just as good going as he's coming. not a bad gig. >> how was the first year of marriage? was it what you expected? >> people like at marriage as the end of freedom. and for some reason, especially my husband has sort of looked at it as freedom to finally be the man he always wanted to be. i've had to get used to him being so freakishly happy. it's been good.
8:35 am
like he's -- he's happy and we're comfortable. and it's -- we really enjoy each other in a way that's probably not very healthy for us. >> you know what i love? i love a lot of things about you. but one thing you did is you shared something about you that was painful. and i think a lot of women probably saw that and nodded their heads. you talked about how ibf was a struggle for you. you talked about trying to have biological children and it was something that wasn't working out. tell us a little bit, if you wouldn't mind, about what that was like. >> i was actually not actually talking about ibf for me personally but for women in general. and most of my friend who have done ivf are not women in their 40s. women in 20s and 30s. zwroust try to talk about shed a little light on, fertility is an issue, period. and having a career is not the price that you pay for any ill. i think tv shows and film kind of make the frigid, you know, single focus career woman that her career is the root of all
8:36 am
the problems in our life. can't find a man, it's the career. marriage falls apart. it's the career. kid gets an f in algebra, it's the career. that's not the case. just to show support and let people know that it just gets better with age. and having a career is an amazing thing if you choose to have one. and if you happen to have issues with fertility as you got older and happen to have a career, all is not lost. there are so many -- there is so much hope and so many options. you're not alone. >> by the way, you're so nice and sweet and smart and everything. i'm just looking at you. i know you're telling me important things. part of me is just watching and thinking, wow. thank you so much. good luck with "being mary jane." it premiers october 20th at 9:00 p.m. on bet. next, selena gomez live if concert. but first, this is "today."

the one verybody is still talking about was saturday night game two of the national league division series out in l.a. mets and dodgers. did you see this play? chase utley of the dodgers, sliding in. they call this breaking up the double play in baseball. this is a take out slide. breaking the leg of mets shortstop rubin tejada. he had his back turned in the play and comes down and breaks his leg. utley has been suspended. he'll not play in games three or four. game three is tonight in new york city. he will suspension. that i make some kind of decision today. the mets lost the game by the way, series tied 1-1. some people think that was over the line. you see takeout slides all the time. that went a step further. >> as i said earlier, it looked more like a tackle. >> it is brutal. >> so will major league baseball review this and make changes? that's the big debate today, willie. >> yhave.i think they to you have to protect the second baseman or shortstop who is executing the double play. you have to come near the base. you your way to of
9:03 am
take the guy out. but again, you see those all the time. and i think if tejada didn't break his leg, this wouldn't have bu zb z exactly. hard to see that video. >> that's from me. my generation. >> that is the one. >> all right. you knowwhat?s this weekend president obama was hanging out on the west coast, san francisco. he hfund-raiser. kanye west apparently was the headliner. and you know as we all know kanye wants to be our next -- or wants to be president. we don't know exactly time line. it could be 2020. we don't know. but we do know that he's very serious app daytly about one giving up his fashion career and music career to become the nation's leader. well pre ident obama gave some advi to would-b candidate kanye west over the weekend. >> but in case kanye is serious about this
9:04 am
pea y thing, i do have advice for him. ther is some stuff that i picked up on the way. first ofall, you got to spend a lot of time dealing with some strange characters who behave like they're on a reality tv show. you got to be cool with that. do you really think that this country is going to elect a black guy from the south side of chicago with a funny name to be president of the united states? that is crazy. that's cra. >> that'cra. >> kanye's line. that's cra. and you know, speaking of cra, actually, i agree with kanye for once on something. the whole app purchase thing for kids, kanye went on a rant this weekend in addition to performing. went on a twitter rant about these ga geared towards children that encourage your kid
9:05 am
to purchase all kinds of things. sow said in one of them, "we give the ipad to our child and every five minutes there's a new purchase. if a game is made for a 2-year-old, just allow them to have fun. give the parent a break." well some people pointed out that kim k's game has been criticized, the app made her $100 million is filled ith the little underground purchases for kids. there was a mom, a writer i think for "the new york post" who went on her own rant about it. but is why i say this agree. i don't know if we can get this shot. i told you about this the other day. somehow my phone is linked to my niece's app purchases. i now have three pages of apps. how many puppy games do you need? this is all giana hall's apps. every page. there is a puppy. you can design his clothes. can you pretend to be a vet. i'm like why is she buying? so my little pony, for example, it's a great game.
9:06 am
but if you get the free one, but if you get a free app, a lot of thes next o the level, you have to purchase it. >> with our kids, mind cra t or even beyond mind craft they have the other games in order to get not just the level but to get more characters, you have toy gems. >> yeah. >> don't you have to put in a code? >> you do. >> we do. >> and my kids know the rule is you have ask. >> but the thing is, that's why i don't know what i did with my phone. she doesn't know the code unless she's a genius and needs to create this invention. but she's 10. >> she has your code. >> you know what? i'm calling her. she's out of school right now. if she knows my code -- >> they know your code. believe me. >> i love that two parents are, no, she knows the code. >> my kids know all of the pass words and codes for every device in the house. >> i thought i had -- i went
9:07 am
back and picked the code it was listed as one of the strongest things. >> time to change the code. >> i'm telling you, these kids are jason borne. you think you have the code and george is looking around the corner how you type it and remember it. >> they probably already put their thumb print into the phone. >> i'vbamboozled. >> yeah. >> time to change the code. >> i'm changing my code and calling that kid. >> we always talk about on the show lifeon work balance and can women have it all? and now the question, obviously, can men have it all as well? an interesting article in the atlantic magazine. it is by the husband of the businesswoman an marie slaughter. you sherecall that wrote an article a couple years ago where she made she lines where talk d about why women still can't have it all. that article went viral. so he writes an article as well that is put my hy i wife's career first. which brings up the whole question of, you know, he makes the point that obviously for husbands sometimes you have
9:08 am
to recognize that your woman's career, perhaps, is more the mone you have to be able to support and allow them to pursu their endeavors. they're more equal as co-parents. he makes some interesting observations in the article. he says that, you know, that women have also need the same supp men have had all along the same way that -- and also trying to'm find where he wrote. he says, so cocktail partparties, it's interesting. he writes the very idea of men as lead parents still makes many people uncomfortable at a deep and ofte level.nscious nothing quiets the dinner party conversation more quickly than a chance m ntion of the fact that my wife outearns me. so while, you know, as a society, i think we said we should all be co-parents, equal co-parents. there is still unfortunately the judgment that people seem to make. >> we got better. but just any dad that is the dad
9:09 am
on the playground with the moms, there is definitely a stigma to it. i think we're doing a lot better. but as the society and the culture does better with putting women in high places, this is how it's going to be. the women are going to be in charge i lot of cases. >> i think sadly, we just have this judgment society when it comes to me, for example, being the with no n children. you know, suddenly kristina was making more cash than you, you would walk in, you know, it seems like whatever lane you're in, there is always someone else in the odriving. >> right. >> there always has to be sort of a balance play. somebody's going to have to is being fis a little bit more. i do a lot more traveling. but my husband has his own business at home. so it woout.itself and he's able to do a lot of things that i can't do, the coaching and all of that. >> sometimes you go to dinner parties and people are like you and you don't feel judged. >> exactly. >> right. >> whatever do you, support your family. >> who makes more? we're going to judge you.
9:10 am
>> get out of here. >> i'm like, bye. finally, some really fun video we want we love dwayne the rock johnson, especially when he busts a move. so he is doing it once again. he posted a workout dance video on instagram. take a look. ♪ >> okay. let's see. he can do any dance. he can d the peewee herman. he has the whole thing. >> look at his moves. >> that is jacked! >> seriously. >> you guys saw and i didn't. >> i think i need to go to the gym immediately. >> we co with ve gone natalie yesterday to spin. >> i taking spin. >> all right. let's go across to dylan. she's in this morning for al.
