7:07 am
>> what were the names that he called you. >> miss piggy, miss housekeeping, miss eating machine. >> all to your face? >> yes, all the time. >> reporter: the clinton campaign unleashing this new web video where machado said she was forced to work out in front of the cameras. >> she weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds and she went up to 160 or 70. >> reporter: trump making no apologies. >> she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem. >> reporter: the political discourse taking the low road. former presidential candidate howard dean highlighting trump's case of the sniffles, accusing him without any evidence of using cocaine. >> the sniffling, the grandiosity, the delusions, the pressured speech, you know, this guy's already proven himself to be unstable. the question is why is he unstable? >> reporter: overnight donald trump's campaign responded to howard dean's comments calling
7:08 am
them beyond the pale. as for that battle to woo women, the latest is that michelle obama, one of the most popular women in america, will be campaigning today in pennsylvania for hillary clinton. she's also part of a new ad praising clinton as a good role model for america's children. matt and savannah. >> peter alexander, thank you. by the way, we'll have a lot more with natalie's interview of alicia machado coming up in our next half hour. mark halperin is here, the managing editor of bloomberg politics. good to see you. >> good morning. >> one of the things about debates, the campaigns get to see what works, what gets traction and they go out the next day, the candidates do, and either refine those messages or double down on them. based on what we saw on the campaign trail yesterday, what does each campaign think worked for them monday night? >> hillary clinton's campaign thought almost everything works. they thought donald trump gave them plenty to work with. i initially thought there wasn't an oops moment for him but there was on his attack on the former miss universe.
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. 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. if he thinks this is going to go away, i think this is wrong and the clinton people have no intention of letting it go away. it affects people's perceptions of him about women, about hispanics, but also about whether he's a gracious person.
7:10 am
>> there's this other thing that he continues to talk about yesterday, this idea that he did not go there, that he showed restraint against hillary clinton when it comes to issues in her marriage. it's this thing where you get to go there by saying you're not going there. it's like if i said i'm not even going to talk about that suit you're wearing and i just did. so is this working? >> i don't think it is. i think it's a distraction from, again, the winning message, there are a lot of people around donald trump that will say the winning message is she's been in politics a long time, washington isn't working. things like bill clinton's personal life, benghazi, even her e-mail, a lot of republicans say you can talk about this other stuff but it's not to be about expectations. and this is for a lot of people distraction. >> he has demonstrated in the recent past an ability to change. when the polls were in freefall and kellyanne conway came on as campaign manager, he did seem to
7:11 am
adjust. do you think that will 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 changing a little bit. >> by the way, there's nothing wrong with your suit. 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 of the shooting last night, a shopping center in el cajon which is about 30 miles east of san diego. earlier today 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 banking scandal. wells fargo is launching its own
7:12 am
investigation into millions of accounts opened without customer consent. key executives are paying up. nbc's jolene kent is here with that. >> wells fargo is forcing its ceo and others to forfeit millions of dollars in compensation and this might only be the beginning. this morning major fallout at wells fargo. >> here are the transcripts. >> after a brutal grilling on capitol hill. >> have you returned one nickel of the money you earned while this scam was going on? >> and the board will do -- >> i will take that as a no then. >> wells fargo board of directors says it plans to revoke $41 million from ceo john stumpf's compensation package. this comes just weeks after the bank disclosed it created as many as 2 million fraudulent accounts without permission from customers. more than 5,000 employees were fired in the process. carrie tolstedt also penalized.
7:13 am
she left the bank ahead of her scheduled retirement with no bonus or severance. she will also forfeit $19 million in stock awards. but she could still reportedly walk away with nearly $100 million. wells fargo's board of directors has also retained a law firm for an independent investigation, during which the ceo will not be paid a salary. >> there's criminal behavior, there's unethical behavior and there's sometimes just simply bad business. >> former employees now suing wells fargo in a class action lawsuit. some tell nbc news the fraudulent behavior was a direct result of pressure from managers. >> what felt strange was how adamant they were that every customer had to have seven accounts. >> some say they tried to sound the alarm. >> i had long detailed e-mails sharing with them some of the things that i was witnessing. >> shareholders now pushing back too, also filing a new class action lawsuit in northern california, saying, quote, the fake accounts goosed the stock
7:14 am
price, directly benefiting executives. that's securities fraud. neither wells fargo executive will receive a bonus this year. the ceo originally stood to make an estimated $123 million when he retired and he is not done yet. he's going to testify in front of the house financial services committee tomorrow, so this is only just beginning. the board of directors now saying that there could be more action on the horizon. >> a lot of public special in this one, thanks very much. former republican presidential candidate chris christie is facing some new allegations coming out of that so-called bridgegate scandal. a key witness for the prosecution is now claiming for the first time publicly that christie was in fact aware of those lane closures that led to a massive traffic jam. nbc's stephanie gosk has the latest on this. hi, steph, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. the george washington bridge is the busiest in the world, so when four of these access lanes were shut down unexpectedly in
7:15 am
2013, this place was a nightmare. when people realized that it had been done deliberately as a form of kind of political revenge, there was an uproar. now federal prosecutors say that governor chris christie, despite his denials, knew what was going on. two days into the 2013 lane closures on the george washington bridge with cars, emergency vehicles and school buses stuck in massive traffic jams, new jersey governor chris christie spoke with two former port authority officials, david wildstein and bill baroni at that year's 9/11 memorial service. in a federal courthouse on tuesday, wildstein testified that during that conversation, his boss, baroni, told christie, governor, there is a tremendous amount of traffic in ft. lee. please know mayor sokolich is frustrated. a democrat, he did not endorse christie for governor. the governor sarcastically replied, using wildstein's
7:16 am
online pen name. well, i'm sure mr. edge would not be involved in anything political. governor christie has repeatedly involved any involvement or knowledge in what would soon be called bridgegate. once again this week the governor was forced to respond to accusations that he knew more than he admits. christie has not been charged with a crime. >> i had no role in authorizing it. i had no knowledge of it. and there has been no evidence ever put forward that i did. >> reporter: wildstein pleaded guilty to his involvement and is now the prosecution's chief witness in its case against baroni and christie's former deputy chief of staff, bridget kelly. both are fighting the accusations. bridgegate dogged christie during his presidential campaign. >> he knew about it, totally knew about it. >> reporter: now one of trump's surrogates, the scandal that undermined christie's hopes to become president, is still far from over. to reiterate, the governor has
7:17 am
not been charged with a crime. there have been calls in this state by some democrats to start an impeachment process, but with little time in his term and no substantial evidence, that seems unlikely. savannah. >> all right, stephanie gosk, thank you. scientists are saying the first baby has been born from a controversial new technique that combines dna from three people, the mother, the father, and an egg donor. the goal was to prevent the child from inheriting a fatal genetic disease from the mother, who had previously lost two children to that illness. doctors say it's not the first so-called three-parent baby, but it is the first time modern techniques have resulted in a healthy birth. fertility specialists from the united states and britain did the experimental treatment in mexico. it has not been approved in the united states. al is here. time to get our first check of the weather. good morning. >> we start out west where there's some wildfires still burning. this santa cruz, california, aerial view, we are looking at

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 so many other guys who were just automatically 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 see this other side to amanda. some of this other video which
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 well. everyone in the world kind of 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. meredith kercher is the person who lost her life here.
7:46 am
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 headlines that 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. it has a good

is depression more than sadness? ♪ it's a tangle of multiple symptoms. ♪ ♪ trintellix (vortioxetine) is a prescription medicine for depression. trintellix may start to untangle or help improve the multiple symptoms of depression. for me, trintellix made a difference. tell your healthcare professional right away if your depression worsens, or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. trintellix has not been studied in children. do not take with maois. tell your healthcare professional about your medications, including migraine, psychiatric and depression medications to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. increased risk of bleeding or bruising may occur
7:49 am
especially if taken with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners. manic episodes or vision problems may occur in some people. may cause low sodium levels. the most common side effects are nausea, constipation and vomiting. trintellix did not have significant impact on weight. ask your healthcare professional if trintellix could make a difference for you. people say, let's just get a sandwich or something. "or something"? you don't just graduate from medical school, "or something." and we don't just pull smoked chicken, bake fresh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it.

8:33 am
revival of one of the most ground-breaking plays in broadway history, "the front page." nathan, john, good morning. good to see you guys. >> good to see you. >> the year was 1978. way back when, when you two worked together for the first time. >> about this time of year at the equity library theater on 103rd street. >> what was the show? >> "midsummer night's dream" which had a disco theme. >> it was the disco version. >> and john and i and dan floric who's also in the play said every 38 years we have to do this. >> what was your impression of him at the time and what was your impression of him, back in 1978? >> he was -- i had seen him before in a comedy review. a friend of mine from college. he was funny, a really hard-working actor. >> he was playing oberon. a dashing leading man. >> 185 pounds. >> of pure talent. >> so the story goes you run
8:34 am
into scott rudin at a party and he says i want to work with you, i want to do a show. what show do you want to do, and you picked "the front page." was that the story? >> you know, we were talking about things and then talking about titles and it came up. he had seen it, there was a famous production in 1969 with robert ryan and so he thought it would be a great idea to do it on broadway. and was very brave to take it on, because there's so many people. >> it's a cast of 20 something, right? >> 25. >> when the show was first on broadway, john, which i think was 1928 or something like that, it was ground-breaking because it was considered profane, it was considered shocking. there were a lot of words in the dialogue that actors had not spoken onstage before. that must have been the big attraction for you. >> it was. >> does it hold up?
8:35 am
is it still -- does it still feel like something the audience is going to -- obviously people curse on stage all the time now, but does the show hold up over the years? >> absolutely it holds up. it was extremely well constructed, it's funny. you love the characters and you want to know what happens to them. you get a lot of information in the first act that holds up and really pays off in the other two acts. >> the great thing about it is you can sense -- you know, it's obviously new -- people are seeing it whoever never seen it before, and you can hear them being shocked or surprised by twists in the plot. you know, the last line in the play is one of the most famous curtain lines in the american theater, and every night now i can hear them like totally shocked because of what i'm about to do. when, you know, there's nothing better than that, surprising
8:36 am
them. >> the dialogue, the profanity aside, is rapid fire. i mean it is fast paced. i think somebody said it takes a lot of vocal stamina. how do you prep for something like that? >> we have a brilliant woman called kate wilson who comes and warms us up all evening but everybody every day is just getting loose. >> what's your warmup? >> prescription drugs. yeah. no, no, it really is almost like doing a musical. you do have to warm up beforehand because you could hurt yourself, so much yelling and screaming. >> my eyes hurt. >> do they? >> that's all i got. >> at this stage in your career, still jitters for opening night? what are you, it's like 25, 22 shows on broadway? >> something like that. yeah. sure, oh, yeah, i'm a wreck. it's always nerve racking. i mean, you know, you want --
8:37 am
especially if you said why don't we do "the front page" and if it doesn't go well. >> he broke a guy's arm last night. >> how did that happen? >> got in his way. >> so you've got to see this show. between the prescription drugs and the violence and the profanity. >> really. >> it has everything. >> no, of course. but when you're with a company of actors like this, like john slattery and robert morris and it goes on and on, all these wonderful people, that's the fun of being part of an ensemble like that. >> can't wait to see you guys together. it's always nice to see you. thank you for coming in. >> thank you for having us. >> "the front page" currently in previews. the opening is at the broadhurst theater on october 20th. up next, some great bargains, all these things waiting for you in october. first, this is "today" on nbc.
8:38 am
c'mon in, pop pop! happy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily,
8:39 am
or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help.

8:47 am
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 cars 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 coconut sugar, so give them a little sweetness to go with the smokiness. we have chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt and perpendiculapepper. 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 oven but it really is up to you. but the rub you can keep in your pantry for six months.
8:48 am
>> 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 parchment paper, you 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. >> spicy. >> spicy. >> a little bit of cayenne.
8:49 am
>> 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 easi easier. >> how long under the broiler. >> a couple of minutes. you just brush the sauce on and then stick them back in and that's what they end up looking like. >> al, you're kind of a rib
8:50 am
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 cauliflower bites. so i bread them a little bit in 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. >> tse don't taste lho ik come on... dogs just won't quit.
