7:06 am
them everyone took off. >> probably still having a good time. thanks very much. there were other stories that came out of these games like the embarrassing incident that involved four american swimmers including ryan lochte that became a blemish on the games. he said he and his teammates were robbed at gun point but surveillance video paints a different picture. over the weekend we sat down with lochte exclusive to get his side of the story. >> you guys go to the bathroom in the bushes. the way it's been described to me is a metal framed poster of some kind or advertisement of some kind. and you just ripped it off the wall? >> yeah. and i have no idea -- i mean, i was very intoxicated. i have no idea why. it was immature. it was childish. >> it made a big noise. >> it made a big noise. and we continued to walk out and get in the taxi. >> jimmy, jack, gunnar, did they
7:07 am
damage or destroy or vandalize anything in that gas station that night? >> i'm not speaking for them. >> you were with them. do you know if they also did things like that? >> no. >> you don't know or they didn't? >> no. it was me. i'm taking full responsibility for everything. i mean, it was childish and immature. >> i want to make sure about the bathroom side of this. you heard the police. the police say there was also damage in that bathroom that a door was damaged. i think they said a mirror was damaged and soap dispenser was damaged. at any point did you enter the bathroom and damage those things? >> no. >> you never went in the bathroom? >> we never went in the bathroom. >> did you kick the door of the bathroom? >> i like i said, i was very intoxicated. i don't remember. >> is it possible that you damaged the door to the bathroom, perhaps even kicked it open? >> all i know is we went to the bathroom outside in the bushes.
7:08 am
>> international olympic committee set up a disciplinary commission to investigate that incident. u.s. olympic officials promise further action. we'll have more with our exclusive interview with ryan lochte in our next half hour including his description of that confrontation with the security guard at the gas station. we move now to politics and the presidential race and indication this morning that donald trump may be looking to change his tone on one of his most controversial proposals. nbc's hallie jackson is at trump tower for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. those new indications on immigration aren't coming from the candidate himself but from his new campaign manager who insists even after a tumultuous seven days that donald trump is having his best week. a new week and a new tone for donald trump's team. seeming to soften his stance supporting a so-called deportation force to remove the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the u.s. will trump actually use that
7:09 am
force? >> to be determined. >> reporter: the candidate himself silent about it. his immigration policy still standing online with trump still struggling to win over minority voters. not just latinos but african-americans from whom he has about 1% support. >> you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. 58% of your youth is unemployed. what the hell do you have to lose? >> reporter: that argument to black voters delivered to mostly white communities. >> his comments are for all americans, and i live in a white community. i'm white. i was very moved by his comment. in other words, he is trying to tell americans that we can do better. >> reporter: now as trump tries to stay on message for another week and on attack against hillary clinton, one of his top surrogates is raising eyebrows raising questions about clinton's health. >> go online and put down hillary clinton illness and take a look at the videos for
7:10 am
yourself. >> reporter: clinton's team has shutdown what they call deranged conspiracy theories about her physical fitness. she is facing questions now about why the clinton foundation will stop accepting corporate and foreign donations if she's elected but didn't do so while she was secretary of state. >> what the foundation is saying is that they don't want to become a distraction. they want to go as far as they possibly can to make sure there's no possible conflict of interest. >> reporter: and this morning clinton's e-mail controversy is again in the headlines as colin powell pushes back against a report clinton told the fbi he advised her on the use of private e-mail. the former secretary of state is telling "people" magazine that clinton's people have been trying to pin it on him. his office acknowledged to nbc that powell did send a memo detailing his use of private e-mail but only after clinton
7:11 am
started using hers. >> let's bring in james carville, the mastermind behind bill clinton's run to the white house. u he's out with a new book. "we're still right, they're still wrong." still blunt. let's pick up where hallie left off. collin powell saying to "people" magazine that clinton people are trying to pin this on him. let's pretend you're in your old job working for hillary clinton. what should she do about this e-mail issue that continues to dog her? >> maybe documentary evidence. a memo. if they have that, they should get that out and show that. i would stop there. we'll see what it is. it was a memo so after there's a piece of paper floating around somewhere. >> do you think they handled this issue well?
7:12 am
>> you can go back to anything in politics and say could you have done this better at this time and done that but right now they're up in the polls and they're ahead and anything that you do in politics you could say that we handled this well. there's always something you could have, would have, should have. >> they're ahead but a reboot on the trump side of things. a softer side of him. he's walking back some of his most controversial policy issues including this mass deportation. how worried should the clinton campaign be that this is going to actually help him? >> we don't exactly know if he's apologizing but not sure for what. i read a story this morning and his campaign manager says that he's going to redo this. it's not trump himself saying that. i think that everything that i read indicates to me they're not doing things that a campaign does. they don't have the organization. some people doubt that he's trying to win.
7:13 am
i don't know. >> reince priebus said by labor day this will be an even race. would you like to take that bet? >> i would like to take that bet but it's not labor day that counts. it's election day that counts and i think she'll be way ahead by then. >> on friday donald trump went to louisiana. you have family in baton rouge. it's a mess down there. he goes down there and looks at the damage firsthand and talks to people before president obama. it wasn't until after his visit that hillary clinton picked up the phone and called the governor there. did he appear more presidential in the wake of that tragedy than hillary clinton? >> i think the time line is that she and the governor spoke. the governor had said he would prefer that people come later because they have particularly the president come. i'm congratulagrateful that he . i'm sure the president is going to come on tuesday. the one thing everyone agrees on down there is federal response
7:14 am
has been really good. that's the total agreement. >> i want to ask you a question about the book. you say elections are lost by the base. >> if people don't understand that there's been a clear performance differential between the two parties, they will think there's not a stake in there. i think democrats have a large stake in there. we've had two successful democratic presidency with a disastrous republican president in the middle. as democrats we have to remind our own people of that. that's part of -- this book is more for converted than anything. >> worried about overconfidence and democrats say why bother show up? >> we never get overconfident about anything. knowing mrs. clinton and knowing the campaign and all that,
7:15 am
they're not going to suffer from little confidence. >> the book is called, "we're still right, they're still wrong." available on amazon and bookstores tomorrow. texas and louisiana could be the next state where zika will spread. a doctor from the national institutes of health says flooding in those states expanded mosquito breeding grounds. he said zika will hang around in the u.s. for up to two years. infections traced to local mosquitos have been found in two parts of south florida including in miami beach. now to the severe weather impacting millions across the country. there were at least 16 reports of tornadoes over the weekend. most of them in ohio, indiana and michigan. emergency crews spent much of the day on sunday clearing trees and power lines that came down on roads there. tens of thousands of homes and businesses had power knocked out. meanwhile in central california, firefighters are struggling to keep a raging
7:16 am
wildfire there away from historic castle. the chimney fire burned more than 27,000 acres and at one point was two miles from the castle. farther south evacuation orders have been lifted after a massive fire destroyed more than 100 homes in san bernardino county. people in texas are cleaning up after a weekend of flash flooding in hard hit louisiana expecting more rain today. again, president obama will head there tomorrow. mr. roker, there's a lot going on. >> that rain you're talking about is going to come down in parts of texas and louisiana looking at more heavy rain and then it moves to the north. you can see heavy showers and thunderstorms firing up between corpus christi and san antonio. activity also firing up along the stationary front into louisiana and arkansas so lower flood threat for louisiana but we look for flooding possible
7:17 am
later on in the next several days as we move further up into the mississippi river valley from des moines, quincy, we could look at severe storms and anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of rain. we're going to get to your local hey, you're clarence! yes, sir. you know, at the model year end clarence event, you can get a great deal on this 2016 passat. steve. yeah? clarence is on a roll. yeah. i wish they'd name an event after me. same here. but the model year end becky event? that's no good... stevent! that's just vandalism. whatever you want to call it, don't miss the volkswagen model year end event. hurry in for a one-thousand dollar volkswagen reward card and 0% apr on a new 2016 passat. good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley. a beautiful day ahead. we've got sunshine. look at these temperatures. low 80s this afternoon. a little bit below normal for center city, 83 degrees. the suburbs, lansdale, 81 and

7:30 am
we're back at 7:30. it's monday morning, august 22nd, 2016. gang is all back together. so happy to have a crowd out on our plaza. two awesome weeks in rio or so i hear. by the way, the games begin our look at today's headlines as the games came to an end with last night's closing ceremony celebrating the beauty of brazil. simone biles won five medals including four gold. team usa by the way took only 121 medals in all. that's the most in a nonboycotted olympics in 112 years. in other news, at least eight people were injured last night when a car plowed into an outdoor dance party.
7:31 am
it happened near cleveland. the driver hit the gas by mistake instead of the brakes. police are investigating and say charges could be filed. president obama arrived back to the white house late last night after a vacation in martha's vineyard. tomorrow the president travels to louisiana to view the devastation from that state's historic flooding. we want to begin this morning with more on our exclusive interview with ryan lochte now taking responsibility for what he says was immature behavior in rio nearly a week after he and his three teammates claimed they were robbed at g gunpoint. we asked lochte about that and what happened when he was confronted by security guards. what was your tone? the police said in their press conference that you were angry, that you were belligerent and that the security guard was afraid you would get aggressive. >> not me getting aggressive.
7:32 am
that's not me is getting mad and angry and wanting to fight or anything like that. i was upset that we got pulled out of the taxi for i thought something that -- there's no reason for a gun to be pulled out for us for doing nothing. >> for gunnar in his statement to police said you got into a heated argument and discussion with that security guard. >> i was upset. there was no reason for us to be sitting down with a gun pointed to us for nothing that we did. >> at any time during that exchange, ryan, when you were that upset and terrified as you just said, do you think you posed a threat to that security guard that would have made him believe he needed to continue to have that gun out of its holster? >> i think when i got up and i started being like this is --
7:33 am
using some words -- this is bs. we shouldn't be treated like this. there's no way. we want to get back in the car. we want to go back. that's why it got heated. and the guy could probably draw his gun from that. and then once he did, you can definitely see me go like this and that's when we sat down. >> i guess what i'm trying to get at is first version of the story you told, ryan, was much more about the mean streets of rio and the version we're hearing now is much more about a negotiated settlement to cover up some dumb behavior. >> and that's why i'm taking full responsibility for it is because i overexaggerated that story and if i never done that, we wouldn't be in this mess. >> how about the people of rio. they dealt with headlines going into the games about pollution and violence and crime and here
7:34 am
comes this story with one of the highest profile u.s. athletes saying i got held up at gunpoint on the streets of rio. what would you say to them now? >> how sorry i am. my deepest apologies. they put on a great games. they did everything. the people of rio, brazil, authorities, everyone there put on a great games. and my immature, intoxicated behavior tarnished that a little. >> when you saw the news conference of gunnar and jack being taken off that plane at the airport and you just said to me they didn't damage anything in that gas station and you're sitting at home in the united states safe and sound, how did it make you feel? >> hurt.
7:35 am
i mean, i let my team down. and, you know, i wanted to be there. i don't want them to think that i left and left them to dry because they're my teammates, i definitely wanted to be there. i wanted to help out any way i could. i just wanted to make sure that they were home safe before i came out and talked and i'm just really sorry about -- i'm embarrassed for myself, my family, especially those guys. usa swimming. the whole olympic games. everyone watching. i was immature and i made a stupid mistake. i'm human. i made a mistake. i definitely learned from this.
7:36 am
>> we mentioned before the ioc still investigating this. the chief executive of the usoc said we're going to have further action on this and not exactly sure what he means by that. >> you can never look inside someone's heart but he sure does seem like he gets it now and is really sorry. >> no question about that. >> take a turn now and get a check of the weather, mr. roker. >> the southwest dealing with some severe weather as well. strong storms. dust storms and we'll see more of those. those haboobs working their way through. we do look for showers and thunderstorms firing up during the day today. the risk of especially by the afternoon enhanced storms. heavy rain, gusty winds. gully washers. flash floods could occur. we're not talking a lot of rain. quarter inch to half inch. some locally heavier amounts about an inch and then you can see gorgeous day warmer through the plains. fresh breezes in the northeast. spectacular weather over the next couple of days.
