after his sister's murder and what he thinks about why her killer has never been found. dr. phil joins us live. and the firestorm grows. more nfl players join colin kaepernick's controversial national anthem protest by kneeling, joining arms, or raising fists. this morning, what the nfl's commissioner thinks about all of this in our exclusive interview, "today," monday, september 12th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today." it is a monday morning. we've got willie in for matt this morning. >> yesterday on that 15th anniversary of september 11th, the focus suddenly became on hillary clinton and her health when that startling piece of video came out. >> everybody is talking about it. let's talk about the state of the race today. the election just 57 days away. as we mentioned, hillary clinton's health scare at that
7:02 am
campaign trail. her running mate, tim kaine, heads to ohio today. >> as for donald trump, he'll be in maryland meeting with national guard leaders, his first trip to that state since winning the republican nomination. he also has a rally planned later in north carolina. and our latest polling shows the candidates in a dead heat in four more battleground states. in arizona, trump has a one-point lead among likely voters. 42-41. and a three-point advantage in georgia, 46. 43, while clinton is up b point, 45-44 in nevada. check out new hampshire -- 42-41, a very close race there. we've got all of this covered. let's start with this health scare for hillary clinton. nbc's andrea mitchell on the story this morning. andrea, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. hillary clinton has canceled that california trip scheduled for today and tomorrow after her doctor ordered her to rest. even as questions are being raised about why she kept her diagnosis of pneumonia secret
7:03 am
hillary clinton recovering at home this morning after sunday's health scare. clinton's doctor announcing eight hours after the democratic nominee left the 9/11 ceremony that clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on friday. news withheld from reporters at the time. after a prolonged cough evident last week? cleveland. >> every time i think about trump, i get allergic. >> reporter: departing the into her van after nearly collapses. her feet seen her dragging along the ground. reporters covering clinton were left hanging. no details from her campaign about where she was going or what had happened until a short statement later announcing clinton felt overheated during the event and had traveled to her daughter chelsea's apartment a few miles away. clinton later emerging without assistance saying she was on the mend. >> are you feeling better? >> yes. thank you very much. >> reporter: greeting a young girl before boarding her van and
7:04 am
clinton's doctor says she was put on antibiotics and advised to rest and modify her schedule. before attending sunday's 9/11 remembrance where her doctors say she became overheated and dehydrated. 15 months ago a two-page medical report detailing her most serious health issue. her doctor writing that in december of 2012, mrs. clinton suffered a stomach virus after traveling, became dehydrated, fainted and sustained a concussion. she was hospitalized, doctors later finding a blood clot require region blood thig takes. and a month later she had to wear special glasses when first testifying about benghazi. in 1998, clinton also had a clot, a deep vein thrombosis, in her leg prompting this question. >> you've had at least two clots. how does that factor into a decision about whether to run for president and all the flying that that entails? >> doesn't factor in at all. >> reporter: there's never a good time for a candidate to get sick in the middle of a campaign, of course.
7:05 am
this has likely made it a lot worse. especially since donald trump has been trying to make such a big issue out of her health. savannah and willie? >> andrea mitchell, thank you. dr. natalie aczar is an nbc news medical contributor. dr. aczar, good to see you this morning. because you are a good and professional doctor you won't diagnosis somebody by watching them on tv. but i will ask is based on the fact that we now know secretary clinton has pneumonia, what are your concerns now as you look at that video? >> basically, willie, when someone is sick with few pneumonia which is an infection of the lung can get dehydrated. two, they are weakened so they are more susceptible to feeling the effects of like standing for an hour and an hour and having a rigorous schedule. from what we know the information objective live that we received is that she was diagnosed with due pneumonia on friday on the heels of a very prolonged cough as we all have heard about and she started antibiotics. we don't know what kind of pneumonia she had. not all pneumonia is created
7:06 am
we can presume it was a bacterial pneumonia. she was given antibiotics. certain coughing fits and spasms and low-grade fever can also result in lingering fatigue and tiredness and muscle weakness and that kind of thing. >> is there anything about her age that makes a pneumonia diagnosis more problematic or concerning? >> so typically as we say with many infectious diseases, the very compromised -- i would not put hillary clinton in that category, no. think everyone involved in this case would anticipate a complete recovery if she takes care of herself. again, we do advise, as well as antibiotics, we prescribe rest. that means resting, taking care of yourself and sleeping. >> the press was kept at bay for about 90 minutes after this incident happened at the 9/11 ceremony. the campaign says she went
7:07 am
to the hospital based on what she had? >> i think it is a fair question. i think that had there been a documented fainting episode where she actually lost consciousness, that's usually an indication to be evaluated by a medical professional immediately. if she was just feeling unwell and light headed and dizzy but didn't lose consciousness and sort of regained her footing, i don't think it was inappropriate that she went immediately just to rest and everything like that. as we know she was evaluated by her doctor a couple of hours later. >> doctor, another question this morning is how this will play will voters and the political fallout. we turn to nicolle wallace and mark halperin. seems to me there are two issues here, mark. the health issue, then there is the political issue. i mean do you think that this is something voters see that piece of video, there obviously has been somewhat of a whisper campaign out there in some circles about is she healthy, does she have some issues. do you think this could
7:08 am
voters consider and factor in? >> barring some extraordinary circumstance, one of them will be president. they're both older, they're both not forthcoming about their medical records. think those issues will be front and center the rest of the way. i think voters are going to look at both candidates and say do we know enough about their stamina to do this clinton but also donald trump. >> let me ask you how the clinton campaign handled this from start to finish. do you bereave that they should have disclosed she had pneumonia when they learned about it on friday? >> of course they should have. this furthers the idea that the clintons don't come clean about anything, not even cold and flu season. but let me just say what i see as the glaring banner worthy breaking news this morning.
7:09 am
donald trump hasn't raged against her. donald trump hasn't called her a name. we are seeing, to me, the most dramatic 24-hour transformation of her opponent since he began running for president. i can't wait to see what his first comments are and if he's able to show restraint. that will mark really, to me, the most dramatic development in this campaign so far. >> nicole, ask and ye shall receive. i am told he did an appearance this morning on another network and he said i hope she gets well her at the debate. mark, this is a new donald trump. >> he had some advisors who told him over the weekend don't comment on it. be gracious about her health. let that take care of itself. this comment she made on friday night, criticizing half of his supporters, that is where the trump campaign is going to focus where i think trump is going to focus. they hope that both of these things do damage to her on the issue of voters trust in her. >> does the health question linger for hillary clinton? is this something that has legs in the campaign that will sway
7:10 am
but what lingers for her is now four bad things. and the campaign never turns on a single gaffe. it never turns on one news cycle. but she's come out of the labor day holiday which is a series of unfortunate mistakes and events. she had that fbi dump of data. she now has this sort of convoluted explanation of why she's been coughing. she looked to practically face-plant into that van. that's not an image any candidate who wants to be leader of the fwo she has her basket of deplorables comment. trouble always comes in threes and she's facing a little bit of trouble in terms of managing her own narrative this morning. >> if you were advising the clinton campaign, would you tell them you should be more up front, release a lot of health records, just get it out there? >> well, she should release everything. i mean she should start her day now talking to her press corps. they know the ins and outs of her health history. we saw andrea mitchell there has been talking to her about her let health for over a decade.
7:11 am
starting today, a much more robust dialogue with the press that follow her about everything, including and starting with her health. >> that going to happen? >> don't hold your breath on that one. both candidates don't believe by playing by the rules. the press isn't there for fun. we're there to ask tough questions to see who is ready to be president and we're there to be with them in case something occurs to keep the public informed. neither of these people -- not their campaigns -- nei wants to submit to the normal rules. the question is will voters care that they don't submit or will voters be more troubled that they don't disclose things. we don't know what's in their health records. we don't know what's in his tax returns. i don't get the idea either one is anxious to win the battle of who has the most discldisclosur. >> we'll have a lot more on all of this in the next half-hour. breaking news overnight. a fire erupts at the florida mosque where the gunman in the orlando nightclub shooting used to attend.
7:12 am
set intentionally. an arson investigator was called to the scene but officials declined to speculate on whether the fire may be related to the 15th anniversary of the september 11 terror attacks. omar mateen attended the mosque and he opened fire in a rampage that left 49 victims left and 53 wounded. to a school bus crash that left the driver dead and 18 others injured. this happened near the denver international airport on sunday. a bus carrying players and coaches of a football team veered off the roadway and crashed head-on in to a concrete pillar. 15 students were taken to the hospital. they have non-life threatening injuries. most were treated and released. the cause of that crash still under investigation. meantime, that national anthem protest started by nfl star colin kaepernick picked up steam sunday with more players joining in solidarity. the league's commissioner is addressing the issue in an exclusive interview with matt. tamron's here now with the latest. tamron, good morning. >> good morning, savannah and
7:13 am
anniversary of 9/11, the nfl kicked off its first sunday of the season. a day filled with both patriotism and protests. late sunday two new england patriots joined the protest. raising their fists after the national anthem at the university of phoenix stadium. the move coming just hours after members of the kansas city chiefs stood arm in arm in a show of solidarity. one player standing out, marcus peters, raising during the national anthem. ? and home of the brave ?? >> reporter: playering showing support for colin kaepernick, the san francisco quarterback who refused to stand during the anthem in the preseason to protest what he called police brutality and racial inequality in america. matt spoke with nfl commissioner roger goodell about the growing movement around the league. >> listen, i support our players speaking out on issues that they think need to be changed in our society.
7:14 am
society, matt. >> reporter: the speaking out, however, is still largely silent. at the start of their game against seattle, several members of the miami dolphins took a knee while holding hands over their hearts during "the star spangled banner." it was the rival team, the seahawks, who were widely expected to protest. instead, every player stood together arm in arm in unity throughout the national anthem. coach pete carroll clearly proud of his players. >> they have a conscience about what they're doing and they really want to do the right some financial fallout for players who protest. the latest -- denver broncos linebacker brandon marshall losing a key endorsement after taking a knee during thursday night's game. the protest now having a trickle-down effect. if south new jersey, a player of high school players knelt during a rendition of the national anthem this weekend, too. as for colin kaepernick, last week -- last night, rather, he retweeted an image of all the
7:15 am
his 49ers play tonight and kaepernick is expected again to kneel during the national anthem. it's also worth noting the 49ers made a donation to organizations in that area who focus in on social justice causes. so the team not obviously getting behind some of the kneel-down efforts, but acknowledging some of what colin kaepernick and these other players have been talking about. >> kaepernick really started something, tamron, thanks so much. we'll have much more of matt's exclusive interview with commissioner roger goodell wednesday on "today." now to georgia where the ross harris resumes this morning. he is the father accused of intentionally killing his 22-month-old son back in 2014 by leaving the boy in a sweltering hot suv. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in brunswick, georgia this morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. because of pre-trial publicity the judge moved this case from suburban atlanta some 300 miles to brunswick. this morning round two of jury
7:16 am
riveted the nation for more than two years. from the beginning, justin ross harris has maintained that the death of his son, cooper, was every parent's worst nightmare. >> cooper's death was a horrible gut-wrenching accident. >> reporter: but prosecutors say it was no accident. they claim 22-month-old cooper was murdered by a man who wanted to escape the responsibilities of being a parent. >> evidence is showing us right now that he has this whole second life that he's living with alternate personas. >> reporter: in dramatic testimony shortly after harris was arrested, police claim that as his son lay dying in a sweltering suv, harris was exchanging sexually explicit text messages with six women, one of them just 16 years old. prosecutors said harris had also researched child deaths in hot cars and life without children. in one online chat, he allegedly posted, "i love my son and all, but we both need escapes."
7:17 am
was unhappy in his marriage and he planned to show that he wanted to live a child-free life. >> reporter: harris has pleaded not guilty to 16 counts, including murder and child cruelty. >> morning, mrs. harris. >> reporter: a key witness in this case could be harris' former wife, leanna taylor. her lawyer tells nbc news she remains convinced that her son's death was an accident. >> the defense is going to argue the prosecution has to prove far more than whether this defendant was an imperfect or even terrible husband. they have to prove that he's a >> reporter: the defendant is expected to arrive here in just a short time and the trial is expected to last up to six weeks. savannah? >> gabe gutierrez, thank you. al has the day off. dylan is here with a first check of the weather. >> hey. we are talking snow. not for around here. basically above 8,000 feet out towards montana. but still it is snow and it is a little earlier than what you would expect. it normally happens late september into october. it is basically above 8,000 feet
7:18 am
to ten inches of snow. temperatures are certainly cooling off. we've got this cold front that's sliding through. temperatures will be about 15 to up to 30 degrees below average across the northern rockies and northern plains. we are looking for the snow to continue and also pockets of heavier rain along this frontal boundary. but out ahead of the front, that's where it is still warm and somewhat humid. the moisture is increasing and we could see stronger storms through wisconsin especially and back into iowa. the biggest threats will be f ? ? here you go. here you go. and here you go. buy any five mccaf? beverages and you get one for free when you use the mcdonald's app. here you go. enjoy a mccaf? moment. now come in and try our pumpkin spice latte.

shutdown. hillary clinton has canceled a campaign trip to the west coast today following an incident at a 9/11 ceremony in new york. video shows her nearly collapsing as staffers help her into a van. the clinton campaign says she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on friday and became overheated and dehydrated during sunday's event. now do "today's" campaign moment. the controversial comment hillary clinton made before all all of these questions about her health arose. over the weekend she about trump supporters. >> to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. right? the racist, sexist, zenphobic, islamphobic. you name it.
7:32 am
insulting and some compared it to mitt romney's notorious 47% remark. the following day clinton issued a partial apology saying i was grossly generalistic and that's never a good idea. i regret saying half. that was wrong. the other issue, renewed questions about hillary clinton's health after that incident on sunday. nbc national correspondent peter alexander has more on that for us. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, willie, good morning to you. we're just blocks away from ground zero where that dramatic video of hillary clinton was shot on the 9/11 anniversary. it is a day when the political focus was largely on remembrance and the war on terror, but it quickly turned to a conversation about transparency and how little, frankly, we know about both of these candidates' health, one of whom will be president in just four months. donald trump speaking out just moments ago on fox news about hillary clinton's latest health episode. >> i don't know what's going on. i'm, like you. i see what i see.
7:33 am
something's going on but i just hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we'll be seeing her at the debate. >> reporter: the republican nominee has repeatedly suggested she may be hiding something serious. >> she gets off the stage, she goes back home, she goes to sleep. >> to win trade in our country, you need tremendous physical and mental strength and stamina. >> she doesn't h or the stamina to make america great again. >> reporter: clinton, fighting back. >> his latest paranoid fever dream is about my health. and all i can say is, donald, dream on. >> reporter: even joking about her health with jimmy kimmel. >> back in october, the "national enquirer" said i would be dead in six months. >> oh, wow. >> so with every breath i take, i feel like it is -- >> you have a new lease on life.

>> reporter: the late night oeft host even asking if she could open a jar of pickles. trump supporters, like former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, keep floating what many view as conspiracy theories. >> so go online and put down hillary clinton illness. take a look at videos for yourself. >> reporter: a conservative website publishing unfounded speculation that clinton could be medically unfit to serve. trump's health, largely remains a mystery except for a gastroenterologist praising his health as "astonishingly excellent." the letter addressed "to whom my concern." >> in a rush i think some of those words didn't come out exactly the way they were meant. >> reporter: last week trump said he would make his medical records public if clinton did the same. >> i would love to give specifics as far as i'm concerned. if she does it, i might. >> why not go first?

7:36 am
or 4 inches of rain. the ground is already really, really saturated so that could lead to some minor flooding concerns. we also have a chance of some stronger stamps today through the midwest. we could see some of those severe with damaging winds and larger hail. out west it is very comfortable. temperatures in the 70s. but it is very dry and we are being looking at very gusty winds. we do have a fire >> and that's your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan.

we're back now at 7:41 with a case that transfixed the country for nearly 20 years prpt murder of 6-year-old jonbenet ramsey. for the first time ever, brother, burke, is speaking out about the case. we brought you some of this exclusive interview with dr. phil mcgraw. a lot of people are asking why he chose to speak out now. >> for a long time media basically made our lives crazy. it is hard to miss the cameras and news trucks in your front yard and we'd go to the supermarket sometimes and there would be a tabloid with my picture, jonbenet's picture blastered on the front. they would follow us around. seeing that as a little kid just
7:42 am
so i was pretty skeptical of like any sort of media. . like it just made me a very private person. as to why i'm doing it now? it is the 20th anniversary. apparently there is still a lot of attention around it. >> dr. phil mcgraw, good morning. >> good morning. >> how extraordinary to hear him speak after all of these years. and just on the little bits that we've shown on this show, we are hearing from a lot of people saying it is a strange affect that he seems to have. he's smiling and you say even in places in the interview where he matters. >> it is. there would be dark content and he is smiling. people are going to see this throughout the entire interview, really unusual affect, either smiling or laughing. this is a very socially awkward young man. but understand, from the time this happened, his parents,
7:43 am
either protected him or hid him. however you want to look at that. when you've got reporters at the end of your driveway, he couldn't go to school. even now he works as a computer analyst, in computer security. but he works remotely. he doesn't go in to work every day. he is not around people. so he's not real comfortable in a social situation. so speaking out for him was a very difficult, unusual thing. >> he's 29 years old one assumes he could have remained somewhat anonymous. did he think that suddenly he was going to be outed? >> he knew this was the 20-year anniversary. and because he was starting to get bombarded, people were finding him, he knew his anonymity was gone. he said he wanted to control the narrative. the story was going to get told. he wanted to tell it. >> this is a comprehensive interview that you do. another clip he talks about what he remembers from the morning that jonbenet was killed. let's take a look. >> do you remember waking up
7:44 am
>> yep. the first thing i remember is my mom bursting in my room really frantic saying oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh, running around my room looking for jonbenet. at that point i was awake. next thing i remember is a police officer coming to my room and shining a flashlight. >> it was still dark whether this happened. >> yeah. i was just laying there. >> what time did she come in? >> early. i don't know. >> it was still dark so had to be pretty early. >> yeah. >> did she turn on the light when c >> i don't remember if she did or not. i do remember the cops coming in and shining a flashlight around so the light must have been off. >> you asked him point-blank -- did you kill jonbenet ramsey? >> i did. i asked him, point-blank, did you kill your sister, jonbenet. i asked him, point-blank, do you believe one of your parents killed her. because there are these factions on the internet. listen, this is the missing link. for 20 years this thing has been grinding, but the missing link
7:45 am

8:05 am
hope she gets well and gets back on the trail and we'll be seeing her at the debate. >> reporter: campaign officials say they didn't disclose clinton's pneumonia diagnosis on friday because they thought she could power through. they now realize that was a mistake. secretary clinton is on antibiotics. no word on when she'll return to the campaign trail. >> kristen welker, thank you. now to breaking news overnight, a fire that damaged a florida islamic center is being investigated as arson. that mosque attended by the gunman in the pulse shooting. nbc's kerry sanders is in ft. pierce, florida for us. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, willie. authorities are now investigating what happened here at the islamic center in ft. pierce. indeed, this is the islamic center, the mosque, where omar mateen, the gunman in that orlando pulse nightclub shooting, attended. authorities say while nobody was injured here, it appears to them to very clearly be a case of

8:32 am
seattle and the rest of washington state, down into oregon, temperatures should run five to ten above normal. then it is more seasonable down in the southeast and also down across most of texas and up into the upper mid >> and that's your latest forecast. savannah? >> all right, dylan. thank you so much. as we mentioned earlier, the dr. oz show returns for a new season today with a look at some of the biggest health issues facing women and what you can do about them.
8:33 am
looking at all kinds of issues that imwith have with their health. >> over 1,500. i wanted to know not just what you think you're doing but what you do based on it. we learned a couple things we didn't expect to guide where we go editorially. we learned there is a new loneliness. this is a shocking idea because we have so much social media right now. if you look what's going on in america, 60% of women say they deal with time. how is that possible? it is important because it can affect your immune systems, your risk of heart disease. >> is that more loneliness that you would expect to have been reported by women? >> i would think women are the glue of society, always come together. the irony is there are important things you can do. yes, use social media but don't do drive-by friendships. instead, actually call people once in a while. don't always text.
8:34 am
use social media for purposes that allow us to actually connect. >> the next has to do with stress. we know everybody suffers stress. >> why are we stressed? this blew my mind. most people say they are stressed, 75% most worried by terror attacks. 67% by the elections. "today" show i am bringing together mothers of the movement. women who have lost their children toio and women of police officers who were slain. mothers of those police officers. these women come together. their love for each other is so powerful they come together for the first time on one stage. >> that will be an interesting conversation for sure. how do you recommend people reduce stress? >> first of all, focus on stressors you can control. >> when you look at terror attacks, elections -- >> go back to yourself. we have something called "the
8:35 am
to give you a checklist of things you can do every single day, simple ideas that allow you to get the right amount of probiotic, do you think tea -- >> i think milk shakes personally. >> i saw that. but you need to have the checklist to organize yourself. simple things i want you to do every single day or you won't control the stress. >> final category has to do with cancer. it was surprising how many women assume they will get some form of cancer in their life times. >> cancer. real number is about 40%. life saving information right here. the breakthroughs that are happening with cancer are not the same as every year. these are huge. immunother immunotherapies. imagine right now if everyone that could hear my voice is cancer but your immune system is able to kill it. there are new therapies that i believe will turn cancer from a life threatening problem that
8:36 am

8:39 am
birthday at universal studios in hollywood. as you will see, normalcy is still the goal as they deal with anna nicole's death. >> reporter: it was a 10th birthday made in hollywood. rides, games, and entertainment for the only daughter of anna nicole smith. this l.a. scene a rare excursion away from the small town life they live in kentucky. >> i made a conscious decision a long time ago to move to kentucky. i did that on ppo it takes away the curiosity. takes away the false stories. >> reporter: dannielynn was born into a real life soap opera. daughter of model and tabloid superstar anna nicole smith, no less than five men claimed to be her father at birth and her mother's controversial death when she was just 5 months old left to up to the courts to declare larry birkhead the father. >> going back ten years ago and
8:40 am
that, does that seem like it was so long ago? >> it does. you look back on it, i'm so much of a better person and a stronger person because of all the stuff that i went through. not doing anything but just taking care of my daughter. for me i look back ten years, i wouldn't have it any other way. >> reporter: still birkhead's feelings for anna nicole remain strong. >> there are things left unanswered. things i didn't get to say to her. it's tough when you go to school and you're filling out the forms and it gets me every year. yo mom's information. there's days that if i stop and think about it and you ask me about it, you'll see a tear but i just -- every other minute you see a smile. >> reporter: they do their best to live a normal life. but reminders of anna nicole are everywhere. >> it is hard. because when you walk into a grocery store and you're in the checkout stand you see a magazine or something.
8:41 am
sell something else. it is just not what's going in the grocery bag. >> as a parent, it has to be something that you've got to be careful, how much do you expose her to that. >> people call me all the time and say, can she be in a movie? can she model? she doesn't care about it. i say no, she's not interested. she's just a regular kid. into technology now and she's into games and these youtube videos. >> as they celebrate dannielynn's 10th birthday in style they are riding the roller coaster of life together. >> i'm not the best dad. i have my faults. i do the best i can with what the situation is and we make the best of it. i think dannielynn's best days are to come and she's got such a bright future in front of her. >> i look at this relationship and this bond that you have with your daughter. i just wonder, what would anna nicole say?
8:42 am
i'm doing a pretty good job. ? happy birthday to you ?? >> dannielynn is now in fifth grade. she is not beyond suggesting that her father should get back into the dating game. larry says is he still working on his dance moves which apparently dannielynn does not approve of his dab. but i'll have much more of my interviews tonight on access hollywood. >> thank you very much. beautiful little girl, too. >> absolutely. coming up next, woodley is here.
8:43 am
8:44 am
we're back now at 8:44 with the very talented shailene woodley. >> the new oliver stone movie "snowden," the story about the
8:45 am
history. take a look. >> what is this? >> oh. just -- leave that there. that's russian hackers. agency says they can activate web cams now. >> that's creepy. >> yes. really bothering me. >> whatever. it's not a big deal. you shouldn't let it bother you. >> it's not a big deal? >> no. >> what? that somebody could be watching me right now? >> shailene, good morn >> this really gets into not just what he had ward snowden did but kind of explores why. lindsey kind of sheds light on that. she is the girlfriend. as i understand it, they're still together. what do you think she brought in terms of his motivation? >> motivation in terls of what he did? >> yeah. >> i can't speak to that because i'm not lindsey. but they had been together for a
8:46 am
i think any time obviously that you have a life partner or you really love someone on a very deep level it raises the stakes for all decisions you make, let alone the decision to do something that you know could potentially cost you your life. she never knew -- >> she didn't know this was coming. >> she didn't know any of it. >> oliver stone directing the film. i understand you wrote him a letter telling him why you want to play this part. >> i did. i wrote him a letter just to say thank you. i was 23 when i read the screen play for the first time. when, again, ed disclosed the information a few years ago it really impacted my life knowing that rt so of your suspicions of like, oh, i bet something -- i bet somebody could go into this camera or record this conversation, where those were validated and confirmed. for me this script, this movie, isn't about whether you agree with ed snowden or whether you don't, you think he is a hero or a traitor. we hear that constantly. this mfb shows you the human
8:47 am
poster child that a lot of us like to comment on and the actions that poster child made. but it humanizes him and grounds him. i just thought it was courageous and brave and really neat that a big hollywood director like oliver stone -- he is the only person who could make a movie like this -- was willing to tell a story that was so relevant and happening in real time today. >> you actually got a chance to meet lindsey. she's very, very private. but you were well in to shooting but you did have a chance to meet with her. did that help inform or make you feel good about, okay t portrayal? >> i met her three months after we began. there were definitely physical mannerisms i was like, oh, man! i wish i could have implemented that into the character. but in some regards it was nice to keep her a little bit private and to keep what makes her her a little sacred and not revealed
8:48 am
"divergent." you won't do the fourth movie? >> i said i didn't sign up for a tv show. >> you won't do the fourth movie? >> well, if it is a movie. they haven't finalized any decision so it is actually a moot point to talk about it now with all due respect to those involved. i'm not sure where they stand. we are in a limbo waiting game. >> you are saying there is a chance. >> i would love to. i signed up to tell the whole story. i would love to do so. nothing would make me happier. >> co-star gordon levitt.

8:51 am
few numbers. >> it is a party in the middle of the day. when you go to a party you don't know what to expect. there is going to be a lot of fun people, music and spontaneity. that's what this show is all about. we're going to have a good time. >> this is your real band, right? they sound so, so good. >> it is amazing. we just play whenever, whatever, sometimes i'll sing, sometimes i'll play. sometimes -- every once in a while people sit in and play music with us. >> stay tuned. >> did >> i have to tell you, you are a pretty good piano player, man. >> oh, well -- chopsticks. >> those are things not a lot of people notice. the way your hands on the keys. >> we had fun. >> sounds like it. >> i took piano lessons at age 6 and i became 6 again in harry's presence. sandra bullock is your first guest. >> she is. >> you guys have that awesome connection, that new orleans connection. >> we have a great new orleans connection. she's done unbelievable things for my hometown in new orleans.

8:53 am
dealing with serious issues, politics and social issues and medical issues and things like that. i'm an entertainer. this is just a party among many other shows throughout the day. what's going to happen? my voice is going to crack or -- you know? we're just having a good time. so it hasn't been hard. >> when you dreamed up the show and you are coming up with guest list. sandra bullock for the first show. is there some dream guest who's out there? >> i tend to think about how cool it would be to get somebody that's a legend. burnett or tim conway or don rickles, people like that. or all the great musicians that we could get, tina turner. that would be incredible. >> i think you just booked them on the "today" show. >> you're still making music. >> oh, yeah. >> you'll still do movies from time to time, i hope. >> for sure. i'll probably end up playing more music on this show than i will on the road. i think if people tune in today and watch "the harry show,"

9:01 am
things they are doing together. we have clothing on the desk. >> we do. i need your help. i know women at home can totally understand this. these buttons on your outfit or the zippers where you have to be a contortionist to zip up. see? you can't do it? >> i don't function that well. >> adam -- see? why do they make buttons on clothes like this or zippers that you -- that's going to be my invention. i'm going to be like jennifer lawrence's character in "joy" where she invents the mop. i am going to invent something where we can do our own bracelets, our own zippers. now that's out of the way. this weekend i raided the vault. that's what i affectionately call my closets at home. >> it is an extensive -- >> it is a deep vault. i've never really shown the entire closet system in my house because -- for obvious reasons my mother will now know i have a
9:02 am
>> here's the deal. i've had a job since i was 14 years old so i've always bought my own clothes and paid for my own things. they've never seen the credit card. they've seen the damage. but they've not seen the bills. so i went into the vault. those bags, billy bush, are all going to our "today" women -- all the women of "today" are doing an auction for charity. we'll have more details coming up. but it is like nine bags. i'm putting in -- i went in the vault. as you said, it is like jay leno. my clothes are like jay leno's cars. these, christian loubetin.

9:04 am
quarterback. >> oh. that one. darn it! >> by the way, peyton manning had a choice to make. he said i can't do two things at once. i can't play football and make television commercials like crazy for everybody on the planet. something's got to give. let's give up football. >> he has a commercial where he's in the grocery store line. i have no idea what they're selling but i love it. he's in his pajamas. >> it's directv. he's retired. >> i love it! i love it. i love was sitting at the house by myself. thinking what am i going to do? i got on my sneakers and i ran down, across manhattan, then down the west side to ground zero. >> so people know who don't live there, how many miles? >> i ran for four then i got a bike the rest of the way. that's my limit. starts to hurt. i spent a beautiful afternoon at ground zero just watching people. you know what i loved about it? it is quiet. >> it is beautiful.
9:05 am
much every day to go by and see ground zero, freedom tower, the reflection pool. all of it is incredible. yesterday obviously was one of just -- >> people were politely like excuse me, sorry. >> it is a somberness but also a hopefulness in the area. so you rode your bike down there. >> i rode down. just a reflection. just because -- i don't know. i'm a new yorker but i haven't been here in a long time. 12 so it was a nice way to reconnect. i was living in virginia, alexandria, virginia, like maybe two miles from the pentagon. i felt the pentagon blast in my house, an old house, 1925. the windows just rattled and i was on the phone with my wife and she was down in florida. she was watching the cover. we were all watching the "today" show and jim miklaszewski and matt and katie. so just -- brought back memories. i was there hours after hillary clinton which of course is a big story today.
9:06 am
headline today. video of hillary clinton taken yesterday at the 9/11 memorial. showed her unsteady, clearly requiring support. this is the video. her knees appear to buckle as well and she's escorted into the van. the candidate went to her daughter's nearby apartment for rest. she was later seen smiling, leaving the apartment. sunglasseses on. she was approached by a little girl that to give her a hug and greet her. it's now been told to us that secretary clinton is being treated for pneumonia. her doctor released a statement saying she is now rehydrated, recovering nicely. she was diagnosed with pneumonia on friday. she's had this persistent cough and her campaign said that it was allergy related. which her doctor says she has this allergy cough but at some point on friday, unbeknownst to
9:07 am
diagnosed with pneumonia? >> should she have said something right away? i think so. only because now she is public property. she may be our president. i am so blown away donald didn't go on the offensive. but then i get it. boy, is he unpredictable. he says, "i hope she gets well soon." that shock you? >> no, it doesn't shock me for two reasons. we don't know anything about his health. these are the two oldest candidates to run. donald trump's doctor famously said he is the healthiest person to ever run for president in history. >> his health is astonishingly. >> his doctor in an interview said someone drove up and waited for them to write a letter using the language he thought would make them happy. he's never said if at the examined donald trump. now today donald trump says he took a physical last week and he
9:08 am
but all of the analysis out there, billy, is that both of these candidates are not telling us enough. taxes. donald trump has not released his taxes so we don't know if he's made the donations he says. we don't know if there are russian investments. there have been conflicting statements. >> how much is taxable income, how much -- >> bank of china apparently has invested in the trump tower which is where she lives. she's released 33 years of taxes. that's how we learned about the goldman sachs. information today about her health. it is now fair game. but, the question is, okay. she was treated with antibiotics. if we hadn't seen her stumble, what's the litmus test for what we should know? antibiotics? >> i understand her not wanting to make that an issue. she's thinking that donald is going to be all over me, he's going to say is a the stamina thing. let me just get out of here, i'll rest for a few days, we'll be okay, we'll get back. i understand her not wanting to
9:09 am
distract and play into the pole personal politics. i get that. however, she does have a problem -- a perceived problem with transparency. >> both of them do. >> both. so in this case donald says he is going to release his medical records this week. john mccain released 1,500 pages and he had a skin issue. >> what's even crazier is that governor mike pence, donald trump's running mate, he released his taxes on friday. but donald trump has not releasedis i think he can power down mcdonald's every day and somehow keep on going. >> no! you cannot say that. >> he's just a tank of a guy. >> women live longer than men. >> true. >> no, you cannot, just because he is a man, he can eat fried chicken an burgers. listen, the money, the health, these two candidates are not being square with the american public. i do believe though she has -- i don't believe it is a fact. hillary clinton has released
9:10 am
we still need to know more but she has not -- he has not released any of it. that's our political conversation. but we've got something really good. >> can i just share something funny? i'm assuming that hillary is going to be just fine and recover well and that it is -- like dr. aczar said rudimentar. >> this meme just came in. it is very funny. this is bernie on hearing the news that "i'm back! here i come! >> somebody say feel bern? >> he's feeling the bern. just ahead, this is blac chyna. it's a blac chyna update. and rob kardashian reveal the sex of their baby. they're having a -- >> see? this is when -- i don't know if this is when you want to know the gender. the gender. maybe you shall have held on to everything you need to know about life,
9:11 am
keep it simple. make every piece count. let other people know what you're made of. always be real. don't be fake, don't be artificial, but always be sweet. and of course, wear sunscreen. nature valley granola bars. no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. just good. looks like someone is baking hmm. wonder who? if you don't already know... ...try it. at walmart's low prices.

9:14 am
"today's take." yesterday we saw the nfl and the spread of national anthem protests in the wake of san francisco 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick's decision to kneel during the preseason. marcus peters of the chiefs stood with his fist raised. entire chiefs team, and the seattle seahawks, which we knew were going to do something. they locked arms in a show of unity. martellus bennett and devon mc raised fists. three dolphins teammates opted to kneel during the an them as well. kate upton tweets -- this is unacceptable. you should be proud to be an american especially on 9/11 when we should support each other. tweet included a link to a story about the dolphins players kneeling. i was watching and waiting to see what happened yesterday. your thoughts are? >> look, my dad was in the army for 30 years.
9:15 am
tell people where do we live? look for the house with the big flag in front. if like a string was out of line, me and my brother and my dad go run it down and run it out. i do believe that this conversation is the best of what we are, meaning 30 years ago colin kaepernick's clear would have been over. people would have been saying even worse things than you read on social media. i think that the other players in soccer player, the sale of the jersey, proves that there are people out there who are ready to have this conversation that you can love police and love this country but still be concerned with what's happening in some neighborhoods as it relates to police brutality. you can be both. and this notion that you hate america because you don't stand -- i don't care if a politician puts a lapel pin of
9:16 am
into places he wouldn't send his own children. so for me, it's like i don't care about these little symbols. i care about how we get together as americans like after 9/11. like when george bush went to a mosque and said we cannot turn our backs on each other. so when you say words like disgusting and -- that's crazy talk. you can say i don't agree with how they're doing it. but acknowledge that there is something here that can be di that's my soap box. >> absolutely. i love the locking arms. i was waiting to see what the seahawks would do. i think locking arms like that, staying as a team, saying whatever we are going to do we are going to do as a team, i liked that. i think we'll see where it goes. i think there's -- i like the fist up. i know some people might say that's black power, that's malcolm x. i don't know, to me that says -- we got this, too. >> it is all in what you want to see. >> i lo of that look right there. that's forward thinking.
9:17 am
involved. >> people were like, it's 9/11. i said did you look at social media? 9/11 didn't stop people from doing selfies. at the end of the day we're watching two groups of man slamming into each other. if we really want to keep it sanctimonious and saintly, then just everything go on freeze. i think it is a substantive conversation. but in the end we are americans >> because the oxford english dictionary is out with some new words. another one which i think is way overdue -- moobs. >> which is what? >> man boobs. >> yolo stands for "you only
9:18 am
ago. i sound like a teenager. >> we're 20 years later on swirly. it is a form of adolescent hazing. it is terrible that it should be in a dictionary. in fact, if i hear about it -- it is grabbing someone's head, putting it into the toilet bowl and flushing the toilet bowl. it is disgusting. hopefully a clean bowl. >> how many times has that happened? >> i was nobody feels bad about that, i can tell you. blac chyna, rob kardashian last night marked the premier of "rob and chyna" on our sister network, e!. we found out the gender of the baby kardashian. take a look. >> that's a nice, normal heartbeat. it is regular and there is no problems with the beat of the baby's heart. >> that's crazy it tells you that. >> it does. you want us to do gender right now or wait a little bit?
9:19 am
>> okay. there we go. you are having -- >> i'm pretty nervous. i'm excited. i really want a boy. >> a -- girl. >> no! okay, why do they react that way? what's your theory? >> because blac chyna knows she's losing millions of dollars because the heir to the dynasty who will have the last name kardashian forever -- >> would be the marketability. let's take a check of the weather. dylan, anything to share? >> baby boy. >> baby boy? >> yeah. >> that's why she's in blue. >> i can tell. >> the dress was a dead give-away. we've also got some blue on the map here. we are looking at snow through higher elevations, back through the northern rockies and into montana where temperatures are very cool. we're dropping down to about 20 to 30 degrees below average for high temperatures. in the mountains especially
9:20 am
with about eight to ten inches of snow. little early. normally comes end of september, into october. but we are going to see it over the in next day or so. out ahead of this cold front -- the same one that's cooling things down, we do have a chance of some stronger storms today, especially across wisconsin, down into iowa where our biggest threat will be for large hail, perhaps golf ball sized hail. and also some damaging wind gusts. then of course the crowd-to-ground lightning, too. it is this area in george that

9:24 am
did the two of you come to -- >> she could not keep her hands off me. >> this is not the truth. >> no, it is not. >> what is the truth? >> we were very fond of each other from the very beginning. we worked off hours on our scenes to establish chemistry, et cetera. we both took the job very seriously. then we thought, you know, it's possible -- this is a good show. it could last longer than the relationship. actors historically you get bored, you are in the trailer, it is like -- they make taylor swift look like a long-term commitment. you know. >> wait a minute. jack wagner's working with his wife on the soap opera. they came back together. they've had children together. divorced. but they can still do that chemistry thing. >> you really want to go through all that? >> no. >> did you ever make out? just a little kiss? >> the way we met, our audition, they were just throwing pairs of people together and say hey, here's jo ann.
