life. i love people are giving me the opportunity. the world at our fingertips. there isn't much you can have delivered to your doorstep with the touch of an app of your phone. the on demand economy. >> can you believe you were able to outsource your entire dinner party. >> no, and i'm kind of scared i know that now. and harry smith on the texas town finding new life in tiny houses. >> you have a tiny house. you have a tiny dog and you have a i want to live small. might as well do it all the way around, right? we got a great group assembled. we'll talk to them in a moment. hermine is a post tropical cyclone but expected to gain strength after slamming florida, the carolinas and virginia. tammy lighter is in seaside heights new jersey for us. >> reporter: good morning.
8:02 am
ocean behind me. you can see the waves are getting bigger with a very strong current. as far as hermine, she's considered a post tropical storm off the coast of virginia and maryland. 250 miles east of ocean city. hermine doesn't look like a classical tropical storm because she has no eye. prep is underway. they have been preparing for this storm. homeowners protecting their home and the beach has been of everything. down south in norfolk, virginia, that community was hit hard yesterday. heavy flooding, cars under water about 55,000 people without power in virginia. now hermine is expected to stall off the coast over the next few days, top winds reaching around 65 miles an hour and we're told hermine could reach hurricane strength again but the key thing here is hermine is not expected
8:03 am
with weather later on this afternoon. willie. >> let's hope everybody is safe and a great beach down of seaside heights, new jersey. meanwhile, a 5.6 quake shook oklahoma saturday and felt in six other states as far away as illinois and colorado. officials ordered waste water wells to shut down as geologists look into the earthquake that some believe could b to fracking. mother teresa is st. theory. mother teresa won the noble peace prize for her work with the poor in india. she died in 1997. the search for two american climbers overseas was called off this morning. they were last seen august 21st

8:05 am
night. check out this picture timed perfectly. conner curry apparently getting pass protection from a ghost. a dallas morning news photographer captured this moment when a lineman's helmet came loose and floated there eerily in midair. a strong crew, paul is the founder and ceo of the outstanding non-profit veterans group iava that aids and advocates for t w in iraq and afghanistan. paul served himself in the united states army as a first platoon leader. simon sanders, democratic strategists and press secretary for the bernie sanders campaign served in the democratic national convention committee as a 16-year-old she introduced bill clinton at an event so well he hateed to have to follow her. good praise there and adrian
8:06 am
and he said prominent latino voters would not stand with donald trump. adrian, great to have you. >> thanks for having me, willie. >> we made it to labor day 2016. ted cruz got in march 23rd, 2015 is when we started and we're turning for home. pat on the back for everyone involved. let's start with donald trump's attempted out reach to minority groups this week. we saw him speaking at the black church yesterday in detroit and philadelphia and earlier in the week he made t mexico to meet with the president there and came back to phoenix for a major immigration speech and many people noted the contrast and tone. take a look. >> we did discuss the wall. we didn't discuss payment of the wall. that will be for a later date. we will build a great wall along the southern border. and mexico will pay for the wall. [ cheers ] >> they don't know it yet but
8:07 am
wall. >> adrian, diplomat by day in mexico, fire brand again, the old donald trump by night in phoenix. did he do anything to help himself this week among la dtin voters? >> a lot of hispanic advisors they saw in mexico at chance at a compassion et speech and thought this would turn the page and in phoenix he doubled down on a hard line immigration stance. what he had was like an advisors i'm open to a humane way, let's think through a way immigrants can stay here. kelly ann conway said he might be softening, trump said the same and 11 days later he's giving a fiery speech in phoenix his supporters loved. i was there in the crowd and they were excited he did not soften on immigration but his
8:08 am
quitting. >> symone, it feels like too little too late to a lot of people around donald trump. >> i definitely i think it's too little too late and donald trump went to that church yesterday and he was also actually in philadelphia on friday meeting with some african american leaders and what not. that was a closed press thing. i think it's good to go and do this out reach but again, this is, what, 60 days from election day and you can't start out reach to before. we haven't heard policies concerning african american communities and latino communities outside this hard line immigration stance from donald trump. i think folks are really looking for some remedies to this rhetoric he's been putting out there and the rhetoric is dee vie sie decisive and demeaning. it's more moderate republicans that don't want to vote for someone they believe people are
8:09 am
>> with all that said, paul, with all the things we said at the table and the struggles, you look at some of the numbers. hillary clinton is probably leading when you look at the map but polling again this week looked to have tightened up because of stories like this one. the 47-page report from the fbi detailing the investigation on the server. she said in an interview with the fbi, she didn't understand c markings meant classified. she used 13 different devices at least, the old ones were destye never sought approval for private e-mail server despite the obligation to do so. that is why her honest and trust worthy numbers are right where donald trump's are at 31% this week. >> that's the bottom line. they are both incredibly popular. you see the shift around labor day. they are going for the middle and getting people undecided and take from each other eastsid's . this will dog hillary clinton
8:10 am
most americans are sick of the process. many people want it to be over but they will continue to be focused on these things that couldn't move people in the middle. >> symone, you had krcritiques about hillary clinton, do you feel that way today after the report this week? >> i think senator sanders was clear his issues with secretary clinton were about the issues and where they stood on the issues. i think that there are clearly a number of think secretary clinton had feelings, but i think they dislike donald trump more and that is what we're currently seeing. i think this is going to end upcoming down to, you know, who is going to be a great commander in chief and lead? who will be able to stand up there and when the rubber meets the road. advocate and on those issues, i think secretary clinton is leaps and bounds ahead. >> adrian, as we turn out of
8:11 am
race? we're hit with a new poll every day. how close is it or how far apart are they? >> i think trump had maybe two of three of his worst weeks right after the convention, and, you know, clinton got to a seven to nine-point lead and now looks like it's tightened again, four points, five points, i think that a lot of the fundamentals of the race haven't changed. trump still has to connect with voters beyond his base. his base loves him and he said they will not turn against him no matter w true but he has to expand. you see polls in suburban areas in michigan where there are republican voters affluent, they don't really like him. they throw around words like racist and stuff like that. >> by the way, even among white voters, college educated voters he's struggling. paul, i want to get to the event happen thing wednesday. the commander in chief forum, iava helping put it together.
8:12 am
matt lauer hosting it. what do you want to hear from donald trump and hillary clinton? >> we want to hear why they think they should be commander in chief. this is a historic event. we're thrilled that nbc and msnbc will be partners in this. there has never been a conversation we know of in presidential history strictly focused on military and veterans issues. we'll have an amazing room on the aircraft carrier and the first time the candidates will be in the same p a how are you going to reform the v.a. and tackle suicide and take care of veterans. at least for one hour, one night in prime time our issues will be front and center. >> and as you said, you're the first person to get those two people in the same place at the same time on an aircraft carrier. i want to talk about colin kaepernick. he refused to stand again thursday night for the national anthem in san diego. a photograph came out this week
8:13 am
that depicted cops as pigs. symone, what is your take? most people recognize his right under the first amendment to say what he wants to say but what do you belove about the way he's doing it? >> protest is part of the american fabric. we got this country via protest. there are few things more american than protesting. i think colin kaepernick has the right to protest. i might not have worn the socks that have have family members and friends that are police officers and the majority of officers are amazing and great and doing really well, but there is a segment of officers in this country that are not. we can't deny black and brown people have been dispreportion anytimely killed in police custody. it's concerning folks have come out and had issues with colin kaepernick because i wonder if
8:14 am
messenger. >> it has to do with tactics. i fought for his right to do this. most veterans feel the same way. i appreciate of a lot of what he says but by protesting it during the national anthem is entirely distracted from the message. he's a pro football player in the nfl. there is a lot of ways to get attention other than sitting during the national anthem and ticking off half the country. he could have made it in a lot more eti millions. you don't have to sit there during the anthem to make your point. >> thursday night, adrian, was a solute to service night, big military city. that was an added layer to the story where you had active duty military standing there doing the national anthem and he's seat in front of them. >> i think what symone said, the mohammuhammad alis of the world protest goes beyond and not exactly comfortable for people.
8:15 am
and lows of the week coming up next including the governor of new jersey giving his all for the king of new jersey. bruce springstene. college football team that opened up the 2016 campaign stacked up in a dog pile. not good. sunday today back after your >> tropical storm watch remains for the south coast, cape and the islands, got a warnings for the waters possible. stay tuned. we're much with ing hermine. it's about 300 miles east of maryland. so far off short hardly getting any clouds but we're expecting it to meander back in this direction which means clouds come back into the picture. also breezy later on today. also breezy later on today. might get showers for themeone g nice for you and you feel obligated to do something nice back. maybe your aunt sent you a crocheted scarf, you sent a thank you note... and the crochet just kept on coming.

8:20 am
a moment ago, immigration was the topic of the week and marco gutierrez, founder of latinos for trump had a dire and delicious warning about a coming culinary invasion. >> my culture is very dominant culture. and it's causing problems. if you don't do something about it, you'll have taco trucks every corner. >> if you don't do something about it, you'll have taco trucks at i think hillary clinton will add that to the campaign. they start a poll, tacos have super high approval rating. >> that's austin, texas. >> right. >> most people ask is that a threat or promise? we hope it's a promise. the next high goes to the sportsmanship of barcelona's under 12 squad winning a close game but the japanese kids are devastated and sobbing so the spanish team cuts short to pick up their opponents.
