things moving faster at other airports around the country? the whisper. what did oj simpson say to his attorney after the not guilty verdict was announced? robert shapiro has finally revealed the answer. and golden girl. a 100-year-old woman attempting to set a world record in the 100 meter dash. gets off to a rough start. but she gets back up and makes her way to the finish line. a triumph for the ages today, wednesday, may 18th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning, where my new hero is ella may colbert. >> running the race, falls down and gets right back up.
this story will warm your heart. we promise. >> we'll have more on that later on. let's start with the presidential race. bernie sanders not going anywhere after he topped hillary clinton in the org oregon prima. clinton is declaring victory in kentucky. one of the tightest races in the campaign season so far. clinton remains on track to secure the democratic nomination early next month. >> donald trump won oregon, as he marches toward the republican nomination. >> another major headline in the democratic race, new turmoil within the party in the wake of an unruly democratic state convention in nevada. we have it all covered, beginning with nbc's kristen welker. she's at hillary clinton's campaign headquarters in brooklyn again today. kristen, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you. the democrats are as divided as ever this morning. secretary clinton had the narrow
win in wn. s kentucky and sanders had the win in oregon. contesting the kentucky results, all of this complicating clinton's efforts to focus on the fight against donald trump. >> reporter: hillary clinton is trying to put bernie sanders away and turn her full attention to donald trump. the apparent winner in kentucky but losing in oregon overnight. on twitter, her campaign thanked voters in the bluegrass state saying, we're always stronger united. >> bernie, bernie! >> reporter: the vermont senator is refusing to go quietly. >> we are in till the last ballot is cast. >> reporter: campaigning in california late tuesday, sanders is forging ahead, even though the democratic nomination is likely mathematically out of reach. but now, some democrats are expressing concern about clinton's ability to unify the party, after chaos broke out in las vegas over the weekend. >> recount! >> reporter: sanders supporters lashing out during nevada's
state convention. >> what kind of democracy is this? >> reporter: their anger aimed at democratic party leadership. >> please take your seats. >> reporter: claiming the convention rules were unfair. >> i got threatened, my family, grandson, husband. >> reporter: state chairperson saying she received death threats. >> people like you should be hung in public execution. >> reporter: in a statement, sanders said he condemns any and all forms of violence, but ad defiantly slammed the party. party leaders are calling his campaign dishonest, saying he has failed to adequately denounce the threats of violence. overnight, sanders took on the democratic party process. >> i say to the leadership of the democratic party, open the doors. let the people in! >> with the party's convention set for july, the clinton campaign is expressing
confidence that, ultimately, democrats will unify. meanwhile, donald trump and hillary clinton both releasing their personal financial disclosure forms. trump saying he made more than $550 million last year. secretary clinton saying she netted about $1.4 million in paid speaking fees. the clinton campaign using this moment to hammer trump for failing to release his tax returns. something he says he'll do once an audit is completed. >> kristen welker, thanks very much. talking about the republicans, donald trump and fox news anchor megyn kelly try to bury the hatchet. they sat down face-to-face in an interview that aired last night. peter alexander is outside trump tower here in new york with that headline and many more. peter, good morning. >> good morning. overnight, donald trump announced a shift in strategies of sorts. a fund raising deal with the republican party that'll allow him to solicit bigger checks than any presidential candidate in history. more than $449,000 per person.
he also, as you noted, is trying to set aside the differences with fox's megyn kelly. trying to show a softer side, but still reluctant to acknowledge any mistake. >> it has been a long time. >> reporter: at times, the long-awaited donald trump sit down with fox news's megyn kelly felt like a therapy session. asked if he'd ever been emotionally wounded. >> when i'm wounded, i go after people hard. okay? and i try and unwound myself. >> reporter: often criticized for being a bully, donald trump had little sympathy for bullying victims. >> you have to get over it. fight back. do whatever you have to do. >> reporter: kelly calling trump out for repeatedly retweeting ugly comments about her. >> bimbo? >> well, there was a re-tweet, yeah. did i say that? >> many times. >> oh, okay. excuse me. not the most horrible.
over your life, you have been called a lot worse. >> reporter: trump says he's planning to address past controversies, like his wild gestures seen as mocking a disabled reporter. >> i don't know what i said. i don't remember. >> reporter: trump telling the "washington post," i would never say anything bad about a person that has a disability. i've spent a lot of money making buildings accessible. meanwhile, trump is again raising eyebrows on foreign policy. telling reuters, he'd have no problem speaking to kim jong-un to try to stop that country's nuclear program. back home with hillary clinton announcing he'll put her husband in charge of revitalizing the economy, trump is unleashing a new wave of attacks. tweeting, will he bring the energizer to d.c.? referencing tabloid reports about a female friend of the former president. clinton later asked to respond to trump's claim that he is an abuser of women. >> no, i don't.
i think people are smart enough to figure this out. >> reporter: melania trump standing up for her husband. we know the truth. he's not hitler. he wants to help america. he wants to unite people, she says. even with the muslims, it's temporary. >> melania trump in the article also spoke about furnishing her first apartment in manhattan in the '90s. $2500 a month, by the way. she told the magazine, i went to crate and barrel. adding, does that still exist or no? >> oh, it does. i can report that. peter alexander, thank you. let's bring in msnbc's steve kornacki. good morning. let's start on the democratic side. hillary clinton loses oregon by a pretty wide margin to bernie sanders, but squeaks out a victory in kentucky. this isn't the way she wanted to seal the deal, is it? >> right. reminiscent to barack obama eight years ago when he ran against her. by this point in the process, it
was clear he had the numbers to beat the nominee but ended on a losing streak. for hillary clinton, it is good news they won kentucky. you say, this probably should have been a sanders state. it was a closed primary with no independents. >> more than 30 points in 2008. >> she's certainly on course to hit the number, but probably going to suffer more losses along the way. >> for the talk of need for unity on the republican side, it seems the democrats could use a shot of unity themselves. we hear about what happened in nevada. sanders supporters getting very, very upset with the party apparatus there. how does this end, and is this all leading to a convention that could be contentious? >> when bernie sanders spoke, he was a defiant speaker. he called out the leadership of the democratic party. it raises the question, this happened in nevada at one state convention. do sanders supporters show up in philadelphia this summer? you can think back, go decades back to '72, '68, chaotic scenes
at democratic conventions. do sanders supporters show up at the convention, intent on cau causing trouble? that would be a nightmare for the party. >> i need you to get up and do walking here. when we look at donald trump and the general election, his strategy involves getting white, working class voters in the so-called rust belt. walk us through it. >> if you want to look at a rust belt, upper midwest strategy, basically here is the red-blue map. obama and romney, obama got 332. let's start clinton there. 206 for romney, start trump there. what are the blue states in the midwest, in the rust belt, that trump is targeting? ohio, pennsylvania. they're saying michigan. wisconsin, minnesota, iowa. these are sort of the targets. when you look closer here, it's sort of a mixed bag for trump. start in ohio. we always talk about ohio. this really is a right, natural,
obvious target for donald trump. it's been close every election the last three. there is basically no scenario you get donald trump to the white house where this is not part of the bedrock foundation. he has to flip ohio. that's one thing. it is doable but the numbers we've seen recently. one poll last week had him up there. pennsylvania is interesting. republicans make noise about pennsylvania all the time. they haven't carried it since 1988. in 2008, obama won it by double digits. it came down to five points in 2012. one of the reasons is when you look closely at pennsylvania, in the philly area, strongly democratic. the suburbs there. the rest of the state though is becoming more republican. the trend favors republicans. one of these years, this thing really could flip. that's a natural target for trump. the problem is, when you look at a michigan, a minnesota, when you look at a wisconsin, it's a steeper hill to climb. as trump, look at it this way. if you can take ohio, doable,
224, add in pennsylvania, now 244. now it gets tough. iowa, that's probablytarget. now you're at 250. you'd still need wisconsin plus michigan. more realistically if you're donald trump, this is a real stretch, this is a stretch. this would be doable to get you to 250. then what? >> florida. >> you have to get florida. if you do get florida, 279. now you're open it. florida plus in roads in the rust belt would do it. >> didn't someone once say florida, florida, florida? >> you crushed that board. fantastic. that was great. steve, thank you. >> thanks. also this morning, the tsa is apologizing and sending dozens of additional screeners to chicago's o'hare international airport where hundreds of passengers were stuck in lines over the weekend. what about other airports across the country? tom costello is at o'hare with the latest. >> here's what's going on this
morning, savannah. they are flooding the -- by the way, this is the end of the line. flooding the zone with tsa personnel because they want to avoid a repeat of a couple days ago, with two and three-hour delays. this is about a 30-minute wait. i talked to one woman who got here four hours before her flight. this is going to be the summer of discontent. >> reporter: at one of the world's biggest airports, an immediate focus on relieving the gridlock inside the terminal. >> we have clearly the busiest aviation systems in the country. this was why it's unacceptable, it's predictable. >> reporter: the anger hitting a crescendo for thousands of passengers. >> frustrating. >> ridiculous and unnecessary. >> reporter: now, a tsa rapid response team sent by headquarters is on the ground. in the coming days and weeks, 58 extra officers and 5 canine teams will arrive, in an effort to speed things along. >> anything wrapped in foil? >> reporter: tsa chief offered
an apology. >> i tell people, i won't apologize for doing our job well, but i do apologize for the people stranded in chicago yesterday. >> reporter: the hours-long lines have gotten members of congress threatening the tsa. illinois senator calling on neffenger to resign. and the homeland security secretary says airlines have to play a role in moving things a i long. >> we asked airlines to possibly consider eliminating the checked baggage fee, to encourage people to check their baggage rather than carry-on. >> reporter: the airlines say they're not cutting baggage fees and believe a better focus is the tsa to have adequate staffing. >> my focus is getting as many people in checkpoint lanes as possible because i expect large travel volume over the summer. >> what we have here are the airlines helping to move people along in tsa lines. a woman in a red coat a moment ago walked back to the end of
the line. they're trying to help funnel people through. savannah, seconds ago, i got this e-mail. the air lyline industry is projecting 231 million people will travel this summer. 2.5 million people a day. that's up from 1.8 million on average last year. this is going to be a very rough summer. back to you. >> let's hope help is on the way in the form of more agents. speaking of travel, it'll be a rough morning for hundreds of thousands of commuters here in the new york city area after a big track fire brought service to a halt tuesday night. it started underneath the metro north tracks in east harlem. officials say the flames were so intense, it could have blown screws off the tracks. riders are dealing with delays and crowded conditions this morning, with trains operating with limited service. more than 4 million u.s. workers will now become eligible
for overtime pay under new rules issued today by the obama administration. the annual salary threshold at which companies can deny overtime pay is now going to be doubled from $23,000 a year to more than $47,000. right now, some workers classified as managers work long hours but are barely paid more than the people they supervise. hourly workers would still, in most cases, be guaranteed overtime. want to talk about tense moments in our nation's capital on tuesday. a man drove a truck on to the national mall because he believed he had been exposed to anthrax and wanted to warn other people. the man told authorities he saw a farmer spreading a substance on a field in virginia, so he brought some of the unidentified substance with him to d.c. the man called police and was detained by officers a short time later. a robot was deployed to inspect the truck. the man was tested for anthrax. firefighters determined there was no hazardous material.
now a major milestone for the u.s. military. openly gay man confirmed by the senate to be the next secretary of the army. willie has that story. >> good morning. eric fanning was first nominated by president obama eight months ago. late last night, the final opposition to his nomination was dropped. >> the ayes do have it. the nomination is confirmed. >> reporter: history on tuesday night when the senate confirmed eric fanning to be secretary of the army. historic because fanning will become the first openly gay civilian leader of any u.s. military service. >> mr. fanning is eminently qualified. eminently qualified to assume that role of secretary in the army. >> reporter: the vote to confirm fanning came after months of delay, held up by republican senator pat roberts from kentucky, who wanted assurances that prisoners from guantanamo bay would not be sent to his state. after dropping his opposition, roberts had nothing but praise for the nominee. >> he will be a tremendous
leader. as army secretary, will do great by our soldiers. every soldier serving our nation today. >> reporter: fanning, who held military posts during the obama administration, including acting secretary of the air force, said in a statement, i'm honored by today's senate confirmation and thrilled to return to lead the total army team. the confirmation comes five years after the repeal of don't ask, don't tell, which prevented gays and lesbians in the military from being open about their sexuality. >> i think it demonstrates not only has the military moved on from this issue, but americans are increasingly accepting of their lgbt friends, neighbors, family, colleagues. this is an important step in that direction. >> reporter: it's a milestone also not lost on openly gay talk show hostelen degeneres, who tweeted, congratulations, eric fanning. the first opening gay leader of a u.s. military service.
five years, and we're already running the place. >> yes, this is a historic moment. senator after senator yesterday was pointing out this man is eminently qualified for the position, from liberal democrats to pat wob errobert, who said h holding it up because of the guantanamo issue. >> willie, thank you. there is a dramatic rescue i want to show you about. it was caught on camera. this dash cam video from a police car in anchorage, alaska. you can see the suv overturned after an accident. smoke is billowing from under the engine. the officer and bystanders worked together to free the driver. >> up, up, up, out, left, right! >> together, they were able to rock that vehicle and free the man's arm, allowing him to escape. soon after, the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames. the driver credits that group's team work for saving his life. >> does your heart good. let's get a check of the
forecast from mr. roker. >> we have more severe weather to talk about. we've been watching it the last several days. this in rankin, texas, yesterday. golf ball sized hail causing big problems. hazardous driving. as you can see. let's move to gulf port, mississippi. heavy rain and flooding causing big problems there. you can see the stranded vehicles. we tell you all the time, turn around, don't drown. and the rain and storms continue as you look on the radar. heavy thunderstorms moving through florida. more activity developing in texas. we're going to watch this today. strong storms with scattered showers and thunderstorms. reduced risk from earlier this year. thursday, heavy rain redeveloping again, bringing the storms in. flash flooding. friday, it makes its way through the gulf and into the southeast. rainfall amounts, generally, two to three inches in texas, but could equal over the next three days, five to six inches. heavy rain moves to the southeas

>> i tried the glove on. it was wide in my palm and a little long in my fingers. oj simpson has enormous hands. i knew that that glove would not fit him. >> reporter: telling fox news's megyn kelly, he instructed simpson on how to try on the glove. >> i want you to be as close to the jury as you can. hold up the glove like you're holding the olympic trump. pull and tug on the glove because it won't fit, and it didn't. >> reporter: a scene depicted on the fx series "the people ser sus oj simpson." >> i tried the glove on, and it didn't fit. it'll never fit him. we should have him try it on in court. >> reporter: also revealing what simpson whispered to him after the verdict was read. >> he told me this would be the result from the beginning. you were right. >> reporter: looking back 20 years later, shapiro has mixed feelings about the verdict. >> there's moral justice, and

image? >> it's amazing when you see the little faces. you can't help but feel connected. >> reporter: increasingly, sharks like this sand bar shark are rare. researchers at the university of miami say some species have declined 90% or more in some areas over the past few decades. despite their reputation as man-eaters, experts believe they need protection. >> shark populations help keep the oceans clean. they do a fundamental work for us. >> sharks travel hundreds, some thousands of miles a year. so the idea of protecting them all out there, scientists say, it won't happen. if they can find out where they give birth, they can set up safe zones. >> you have to do it in important, critical arias, like the ones they might be mating or giving birth and gestating. today, we're trying to solve that puzzle and find those missing pieces. >> reporter: solving a puzzle with a window into the belly of the beast. for "today", kerry sanders, nbc

senator sanders claiming victory in oregon, but dangling the possibility of contesting the results in kentucky. all of this comes as there are real concerns about the democrats' ability to unify with the convention two months ago. over the weekend, chaos erupted at the nevada convention when 157 sanders supporters lashed out at party leaders, claiming the rules are unfair. sanders accused party leaders of mistreating his supporters. the dnc called on sanders to denounce the unrest. in california last night, sanders vowed to fight till the very end. >> the grassroots capability to make certain that in november, in the general election, we have a huge voter turnout. >> late last night, donald trump and the republican national committee announced a joint fundraising agreement that will allow individual donors to contribute nearly $500,000 each

modified foods are safe for consumers. posing no additional risk to health or the environment when compared to traditional crops. this after analyzing 20 years of data. >> if there was a real effect, increasing cancer rates or causing some kind of acute problem, it would have been found in the data. >> reporter: more than 90% of corn, soybeans and cotton grown in the u.s. is genetically modified. usually to make the crops resistant to herbicides or to deter insects. these foods are in cereal to canned fruit. critics long expressed the need for labeling. >> no more gmos. >> reporter: tuesday's report does little to cultivate a change of heart. >> people want to know what's in the food, where it was grown, how it was grown and who made it. the demand for greater gmo transparency is part of this larger trend.
>> reporter: the report found no significant difference in obesity, cancer or disease in regions where gm mrkgmos have b widely consumed. it's up to the consumer to decide what goes from farm to table. for "today", morgan radford, nbc news. >> dr. mehmet oz is with us now. good to see you. over the years, you've been outspoken about this. you've been in favor of labeling. you've now read thispensivexpxt. does it change your mind? >> i think they put all the facts together in one place. we don't have the right facts, and this study helps us understand what the real facts are. >> the headlines. genetically engineered crops are safe for humans and animals to eat and having caused increases in kidney disease, allergies,
cancer. there doesn't seem to be a gray area in that. >> they were thoughtful about what they said. like most scientists, looking at the data on genetically modified foods, they seem like they're safe. there is knowledge that whenever new food is introduced into the food supply -- because we're different from each other -- some people may suffer. they're willing to acknowledge though we think it's safe in general, we have to keep studying it. >> they go further and say the fact that previous ge crops haven't caused health or environmental problems doesn't mean all perspective ge plants should be presumed to be benign. >> big, big break through. this basically says, we need to let people decide for themselves. what we're talking about is not genetically modified foods, where i think people are in agreement that they're okay. people are thinking, what should i buy for my family? >> even with this information, let's say people would like to avoid genetically modified
foods. how do they do that? >> buy organic. there's non-gmo project verified labels. organic is the best way to go. the break through idea is the academies are acknowledging they value the mandatory food labeling. not because of the safety of the gmo foods, but they allow pesticides into the environment. other factors that make you uneasy. >> i read the report as saying the people behind it don't feel it's necessary labeling, but fine if it makes people more comfortable. >> that's absolutely right. it's a fair way of saying it. as a scientist or food manufacture, you may not feel you need to identify it. for people in their homes, because i don't believe it, the effects on the environment, whatever reason, why not let me have a choice? it's the america thing to do, give me the choice. when they acknowledge because of that, not because of the science, we should allow mandatory food labeling.
that's the break through because that's the compromise. >> always good to see you. you can catch his show weekdays. check your local listings. let's head over to al for a look at the forecast. >> we're looking at the sunshine state. not too sunny. more showers and thunderstorms. we expect to see anywhere from one to two inches. could be upwards of two to four inches, especially around the indian river, martin county. good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. lot was clouds and a few showers in the area but this afternoon should see breaks of sunshine in philadelphia. mostly cloudy for the suburbs, lehigh valley morning showers will taper off as we go into the afternoon hours. best bet to see breaks of sunshine is in new jersey at the shore and delaware. little bit cooler at the shore with northeast winds coming off the cooler ocean. upper 60s in new jersey. delaware breaks the sunshine warming in to the 60s. have a great day.
>> that's yur layour latest weather. time for what is trending today. >> this one is an emotional and controversial question. is it ever okay to leave a child home alone? what if you only plan to be gone for a few minutes? one mother stirred up a real debate on social media with that question. she revealed this, that she left her 10-month-old sleeping at home while she went to a nearby shop. i'll break there, get your opinions, and then finish the story. >> ten months. >> the store was around the corner, she said. >> it was like 50 meters away. >> right. >> she said the baby takes a nap at the same time every day for about an hour. she felt it was a very predictable period of time. >> did she have a baby monitor or anything to keep an eye on the child? >> you'd have to rush back, even if something happened. >> ten months old. >> could have choked.
>> seven minutes. >> i get the temptation, especially when you settle into a routine. the baby is always asleep. i'm just going down to get milk or something. i'd be afraid to do it. >> what's the difference -- playing devil's advocate. your baby is asleep upstairs and you go downstairs to the basement or whatever. >> or walk in the backyard. >> it's closer than the store. >> only 150 feet away. >> i mean, if you take a baby monitor or device to watch them. even then, it's like going around the corner. corner. >> just to put a period on it. the reaction online is extremely mixed. >> that's a tough one. >> it is. could this new app officially spell the end of privacy as we know it? it uses a facial recognition algorithm to identify anyone from their picture. you could be walking down the street, someone snaps a photo of you and can find any social
media profile you might have. online presence. right now, this app is only operation operationally functional in russia. the technology is 70% accurate. it tracks everyone from potential dates to suspects. >> good and bad. >> have you ever had the moment when you see somebody, can't think of their name and you're like, what is it? if i could figure that out. >> you want to follow them. this could get out of hand. >> what if you have someone that's 18 or 19, and some person sees them, snaps their picture and you have a creeper at your door? >> enough of them to scare me. >> obvious answer. >> for those of us without a social media profile. >> basically, trusting and paranoid. let's talk about jordan spieth, shall we? one of the greatest golfers in the world right now. didn't make the cut at the players championship.
but he proved he can do a lot of things that a lot of us can't. golf clinic on tuesday. jordan had a marshmallow bouncing on a golf ball. he catches it in his mouth. didn't stick the landing. he gets a huge ovation from the crowd. now, the thing you have to be careful here, not to confuse the marshmallow for a golf ball. that can chip a tooth. >> impressive. tom hanks explains how work took a tool on his health. and a feud with j.lo. >> first up, we love him, tom hanks. why he says he was a total idiot is an interesting answer behind it. he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2013 and blamed fluctuating weight in roles. he says, i'm part of the american generation that blindly kept dancie ining through the p.
i was heavy. you've seen me in movies. you know what i looked like. i was a total idiot. he said the word from his doctor is he can get the condition under control if he hits a target weight. he's not an idiot, but relatable. diet and exercise, his doctor said would help. >> we love tom hanks. >> he's so sweet. next up, mariah carey trying to answer once and for all, what is her relationship with jennifer lopez? here's the story. years ago, mariah was asked what she thought about jennifer. she said, quote, i don't know her. many read this as the supreme shade of all time. that led to a cheeky response from j.lo. >> she does say that. she's forgetful, i guess. i don't know. we've met many times. >> they've met many times. tuesday night, mariah was andy cohen's guest. surprise, surprise, it came up
yet again. >> do you know each other? >> no. >> she says you know her. >> i know she -- you know what? i've very forgetful, apparently. apparently, i'm forgetful because i don't remember the fact that it was just like, hi, i'm so and so. then move on. >> does she seem cool? >> i don't know her. >> geez. >> they're both amazing. love them both can we all get along? >> will the world be suffering if they just pretend they don't know each other, or she pretends she doesn't know her? >> let's move on. >> i think, i don't know her personally, but i know her music. they're both new yorkers. both at the top of the game. i don't know. >> they're both cool. >> they're both super cool. robin thicke, a talented musician and now it looks like his son, who i love this kid, is

yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. dogs - sure can be messy.
