8:03 am
history. now, there are some new additional details this morning. "the new york times" reporting that part of this assessment is based on an analysis that the russians also hacked into the republican national committee, but that none of that information was released. you'll remember we saw plenty of e-mails from hillary clinton campaign chairman john podesta as well as e-mails from a hack into the democratic national committee. so while this is going on, trump is still trying to pick his own national security team. rudy giuliani, we've learned, has taken his name out of consideration for secretary of state. still in the mix, rex tillerson, the ceo of exxonmobil, and also mitt romney, the 2012 republican presidential nominee. but you may remember, guys, that mitt romney called russia at one point america's number one geopolitical foe. sheinelle, craig. >> all right, thank you. some other headlines this

8:12 am
doesn't happen. while we all want the holiday season to be fun, it can be stressful. countless parties, endless treats, a lot of time with the relatives. sometimes you just have to say no, right? well, how do you do that and still be effective? there's no research that shows apparently there is a right way to say no, depending on how you frame your statement. for example, if you're invited to a holiday party, instead of saying i can't make it that night, you can say i'm sorry, i won't make your party because i don't stay out past 9:00 on a school night. i just don't do it. research shows that a simple word change can make people feel more psychologically empowered. so instead of saying i can't do that, i don't. >> there's a reason why. >> so i can't go to your party, i don't hang out with you. >> no, that's probably not -- >> and finally, your mailbox is probably filling up with holiday cards so what would you do if you got one of these from the first family? this is the final year the bo

8:14 am
that hasn't stopped the shows writers from joking about it. >> we miss michelle, we hope that she'll be with us next year. >> come, it'll be fun. >> that's funny. >> next, it's time to start your engines as we get our first look at the latest "fast and furious" film. check out this teaser. it was for the eighth show in the franchise. but that's not all, the eighth movie will be called, any guesses? >> fast and furious 8. >> no, it's more creative than that. the fate of the furious. it's expected to pull into theaters in april, 2017. did you watch them all? >> no. i saw like the first two, though. >> you can watch eight now. and finally, after it was announced this week that beyonce racked up nine grammy nominations, one man who you could say is a beyonce superfan had a little fun celebrating.

8:16 am
why is he just walking around on a random saturday morning. >> and nobody kinda looks like shaq. you're either shaq or you're not. >> when you're 7'2", you don't get mistaken from a lot of folks. coming up, from humble beginnings to a meteoric rise, we've got the story behind these wildly popular backpacks. but first, this is "today" on nbc.
