7:02 am
attorney general for refusing to implemented the travel ban. >> former president obama is expressing support for the on going protest against trumps orders saying they are exactly what he expects to see when american values are at stake. >> all of this as president trump gets set to announce his nominee for the supreme court today looking to fill the seat of the late justice anthony scalia. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. this is quite the drama overnight and this morning there's a new top law enforcement officer at the department. it is a move that legal experts say the president had a right to make but one that critics for maximum effect are trying to draw comparisons to the saturday night massacre where president nixon used his power to punish political opponents.
7:03 am
>> we had a monday night massacre. >> that massacre referring to president trump's firing overnight of acting attorney general sally yates an obama hold over. coming hours after yates ordered justice department lawyers not to defend trump's controversial travel ban. the white house saying yates betrayed the department naming a new acting attorney general until jeff sessions can be confirmed. meanwhile on the steps of the supreme court democrats vowed to stand their ground. >> we must overcome this little man in the white house disgracing our history and disgracing our traditions. >> this morning they've got big back up. former president obama days removed from office weighing in. rejecting trump's ban in the motion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion. more rallies in the street including in columbus ohio where police used pepper spray to disperse this crowd. mr. obama praised protestors
7:04 am
saying he is heartened by their engagement. dozens of officers circulating a memo slamming the immigration action. we are better than this it reads. the white house responding with this warning. >> these career bureaucrats have a problem with it. they should either get to the problem or they should go. >> the partisan few becoming bitter. chuck schumers emotions. >> it was mean spirited and un-american. openly mocked by the president. >> i'm going to ask him who is his acting coach. >> the next flashpoint, the supreme court. president trump said to announce his pick tonight in a primetime address. the president's decision narrowed down to two appeals court judges. both white men and both appointed by george w. bush. a harvard law grad from colorado and thomas hardeman a former trial judge from pennsylvania. for president trump's system also sits on the bench.
7:05 am
>> as for the new acting attorney general's first action in office again telling the justice department lawyers to defend president trump's executive order and new this morning an unusual move the white house responding to concerns about what more actions the president might take vowing not to touch an obama executive order that protects lgbt employees from discrimination in the work place when working for federal contractors. >> peter, thank you. >> why don't we bring in pete williams. he is taking a closer look. good morning. >> good morning, mr. trump's move to fire sally yates came less than three hours after she said that justice department lawyers would not defend the immigration lawyers in court. but her statement was symbolic. she was a hold over from the obama administration intended to be on the job just until her successor senator jeff sessions can be confirmed. that's a justice department tradition. she sent a letter to doj
7:06 am
employees saying she had a so let me obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right. defending the immigration order would not be consistent with that duty adding nor am icon vinced that the executive order is lawful. at her confirmation hearing to be deputy attorney general two years ago senator sessions asked her about that duty. >> do you think the attorney general has a responsibility to say no to the president if he asks for something that is improper? the views the president wants to execute are unlawful, should the attorney general, the deputy attorney general say no. >> senator, i believe the attorney general or deputy attorney general has an obligation to follow the law and the constitution and to give their independent legal advice to the president. >> justice department lawyers did, in fact, defend the executive order over the weekend when the first round of challenges was filed and the heavy lifting in federal court won't come for several weeks when the legal briefs are due on
7:07 am
whether the order violates the constitution and federal laws. by then the white house hopes it's choice will be on the job. the senate judiciary committee votes on his nomination later today. >> all right. thanks so much. >> now to more on the president's announcement later today of the supreme court nominee and what's at stake with the much anticipated pick. for that let's turnover to steve. good morning to you so this is going to fill the seat left vacant. any time you deal with the court it is legally politically and emotionally changed. what kinds of issues will this court face. >> some of the most culturally devicive issues we talk about in american life. obviously start with abortion. it was the supreme court more than 30 years ago with the ruling made it legal nationwide and still a contested issue every time one of these nominations comes up that's front and center did donald
7:08 am
trump violate that in anyway? ultimately the supreme court decides that issue. just last week the court said they're not going to look at a big case out of texas right now but with a new member coming on that may change. they left that option open and may be revisiting it. all the new regulations put in place he wants to get rid of them. not necessarily that easy. may end up in front of the court. >> the supreme court has brought down a lot of decisions. is that saying they are a dee logically split just like that? >> conservatives would say no. this is the backdrop for what's been happening the last year. take a look right now. we have a real solid conservative block here of three he is a reagan appointee more on the conservative side so conservatives looked at this and said last year obama got his
7:09 am
nominee through. garland probably would have fallen right around here. he is to the left so a conservative and you're going to have five liberals here that's why they fought to leave it open. >> chuck schumer said he and other democrats were emotions ploering the president to choose a mainstream justice. does the democrats version or definition of mainstream at all coincide with the republicans definition? >> no, i think we probably just saw the ultimate test that i mentioned. garland was the choice of barrack obama last year. republicans refused to hold hearings and consider this. this was from the democratic standpoint a concession to republicans. they said we would probably go with somebody more to the left. the obama administration said this is more a moderate pick and republicans said no also this morning we're learning about the
7:10 am
first military raid carried out under president trump. keir simmons has that story. good morning. >> the first strike targeting an al qaeda camp targeting a super secret joint operations command. the member of seal team 6 killed during the operation named as william ryan owens gave his full measure for our nation the defense secretary said in a statement. another killed in the raid an 8-year-old girl. the daughter of al qaeda leader who himself was killed in the u.s. strike five years ago. yemen in a continuing war as an al qaeda strong hold. the aim had been to capture valuable intelligence, specifically equipment but the seals aircraft experienced a hard landing injuring several a fire fight ensued. some of the women themselves opened fire. one official telling nbc news
7:11 am
almost everything went wrong. >> thank you so much. >> i want to give you the latest on sunday's deadly mosque attack. a french canadian college student has been charged with the shooting that rampaged in quebec city. six were killed and several others were wounded in what the prime minister considered a despicable act of terrorism. the 26-year-old was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder. he is described as a loaner with antiimmigrant views. police say they're confident there was only one shooter. a second man who is detained is considered a witness and not a suspect. >> now to that historic announcement to the boy scouts we mentioned at the top of the show. breaking from a century old policy the organization said it will now allow transgender children who identify as boys to
7:12 am
enroll. >> good morning, the boy scouts is one of the largest youth organizations in the country. for many it's a right of passage and now times are change again for a group founded way back in 1910. with nearly 2.3 million member across the country the boy scouts of america is deeply rooted in tradition but this morning a big change for this historic institution. reversing a more than century old stance the group is clearing the way for transgender boys to become scouts. >> i hope i get a lot of badges. fun activities. you know, eat s'mores, go camping. >> born jodi in 2008, two years ago joe self-identified as a boy. his mother, christie, always supportive enrolled him in the cub scouts last year. but one month after joining, christie says joe was forced out when scout leaders learned he
7:13 am
was born a girl. >> it hurt him. he just wanted to be accepted and just feel normal and just to play with his friends. he didn't understand why he got kicked out. >> christie says the boy scouts change of heart only came after she filed this lawsuit claiming discrimination. the organization declined our interview request referring us instead to this video statement. >> after weeks of significant conversations at all levels of our organization we realize that referring to birth certificates as the reference point is no longer sufficient. communities and state laws are now interpreting gender identity differently. >> this is not the first time public pressure has forced change in the boy scouts. two years ago the group lifted it's ban on gay adults serving as scout leaders and in 2013 amid more backlash, the scouts decided openly gay youth could
7:14 am
participate. for children like joe, the new transgender policy is ground breaking. a historic institution built on values now reevaluating their own to be more inclusive than ever. >> i think i want transgenders to be accepted. people should respect them and give them compassion and love. >> the new policy goes into effect immediately. some advocacy groups say this decision has been a long time coming while others are criticizing the move. it is a major step for an organization that's long been a fabric of our society. but it's come under tense scrutiny in recent years. back to you guys. >> miguel, thank you for that. >> happy to report really good news this morning. former president george h.w. bush is back home after being released from a houston hospital on monday. the 92-year-old spent more than two weeks there battling pneumonia.

7:39 am
>> back now with something new to think about when it comes to your health. >> we're all supposed to worry about what we eat but a new report from the american heart association suggests when you eat is just as important.
7:40 am
here to talk about that dr. oz, host of the dr. oz show. so you're telling us it's not what you eat. it's you are when you eat. >> it's more and more important. what's more important about this american heart association report is that they took the time to write it. there's so much conversation now about the fact that we are supposed to eat at some times and not at others. when we eat becomes an important prekick to of what we eat and how much we eat and you put those together you might have the recipe for not just weight loss but more importantly risk factors for heart disease and diabetes and high blood pressure. >> let's start with breakfast because a lot of people do skip it. they think i'll save a couple of hundred calories. i'll have lunch. what does this say about that? >> populations of people that eat breakfast they're healthier and have less cardiovascular risk factors but i spoke to a lead doctor at columbia university and she said point out when we put people on trial
7:41 am
that force them to eat breakfast they don't do better. it mean ifs you're intentional f you're planning your day out, that's what is more important. when you eat breakfast you're not going to go for something at 11:00 in the morning you have planned your day out where if you skip breakfast you back your way into what you're going to eat when you first get hungry. >> was this a study or a gathering of scientific evidence. >> it was the latter. >> so it's not a study. >> it's not a study. that's an important observation. most of the studies have been done, more and more data supports what i'm saying. who is going to give up everything they eat for five years to see what makes the difference. >> when we talk about dinner people say you have to have a certain number of hours between when you finish dinner and when you go to sleep. >> it's an important factor and here's what we're learning. when animals are fed food late
7:42 am
at night they do very poorly, they gain more weight and we are humans are insulin resistant at night. not only do you store the food you eat in the wrong way like fat but you also tend to overeat beyond that. americans eat 19 out of 24 hours these days. we were not designed to eat for that long of a period of time. >> i remember oprah saying she stopped eating at like 7:00 and i thought that's a smart thing to do and then i said isn't it all just calories in, calories out. if i eat 1200 calories no matter when i eat them, isn't it the same thing. >> two factors, first of all it is calories in, calories out in most ways but you eat less food. you realize the body doesn't want to digest food. think about it hoda. >> call me dr. hoda. >> if you eat right before bedtime your brain is saying you're tired, go to sleep but your intestines are saying stay up you have to digest your food
7:43 am
and when your hormones don't work with you they work against you so you deposit the food in the wrong places. so although it makes a difference it's easier in life if you automate things so your hormones are supporting the right number of calories in. >> what does your survey say about this trending thing of intermittent fasting. where people eat very little one day and then eat normally the next day. >> here there is data in humans. the data says it works. there's lots of religious traditions around fasting but more traditionally now body builders and the like are fasting by eating 25% of their basic amount every other day or third day. it turns out you don't make up the difference by eating extra on the other days. people do tend to lose weight and they have lower blood pressure and cholesterol problems. it comes up over and over again but any personal life, intermittent fasting at least a block of time where you don't
7:44 am
eat, 12 hour ace day, i think it's a very wise way and more and more data supports it. >> doctor, thank you very much. >> doctors. >> you can see more of this guy right here on the dr. oz show, check your local listings. >> coming up, was there room? the man behind titanic tries to end a 20 year debate about the movie's famous ending. >> carson has highlights from the always entertaining super bowl media night including the bowl media night including the are you ready?? you gotta be ready. ♪ oh, i'm ready i mean, really ready. are you ready to open? ready to compete? ready to welcome? the floors, mats-spotless. the uniforms, clean and crisp. do your people have the right safety gear? are they protected? i'm ready! you think your customers can't tell the difference between who's ready and who's not? of course they do. ♪ i'm ready for you everybody wants a piece of ready. cintas, ready for the workday. ♪

8:40 am
about getting the kids to school, go to work, make sure they have lunches. suddenly i go to the vancouver airport and there's just statues and beautiful statues and airport art and you're like they're so sensual. look at the round curves of that one and a hard lines of that one it's a man and a woman. and now i'm on the street and i'm like oh, hello. my kids are like mom what's wrong with you. i'm like nothing is wrong with me. >> your kids are teenagers right? >> well, they're 12 and then i have an 18-year-old. >> are they horrified? excited? how do they feel about you in this movie? >> well, your language really slows down when you try to explain the movie to them and you start mumbling. that's what they normally do but now i'm doing it. well, it's a movie -- and the character likes -- and they're like what? mom? did you say spanked. and you're like never mind, never mind. >> so you play christian grey's
8:41 am
mother. >> mother right. >> and he had a troubled childhood is a fairway to say it. tell us about your character. >> but you know what was interesting for me is that because the movie is about what it's about an erotic fantasy but it's really a romance and a romantic fantasy. my character is very important because she's the mom. she's nurturing, she adopted him and she's the first-person who is trying to sort of heal him through the powers of love but she doesn't know about this other dark side. she is a mama bear and real protector. there's a scene where she understands what role kim played in his sexual understanding of himself. >> so kim basinger's character abused your -- >> she's abused my son and my character understands it and she lets her know who is boss. >> how does she let her know. >> let me show you. >> so this is a scene. we're going to reenact a scene from 50 shades. >> it's like. >> so you come upon kim who

8:43 am
that's what we all want to do is change the bad boy and she does sort of through the power of love. >> we had e.l. james on earlier and she was talking about how that was an important part of it and also the part of it that had to do with more of a thriller part of this movie. >> different components. >> you can look into it on so many levels and you can say that's what the character does is say no. >> hit me. >> you are ready. >> you're mad at me. >> take that. take that. and now kiss me. that is 50. >> marcia gay harden, thank you. she will be back again with kathie lee and myself and we're going to talk about that. coming up, we are -- oh by the way 50 shades darker opens on february 10th.
