7:03 am
publicly say that he believes that barack obama was born in the united states. he's refused to say so as recently as this week. he's refused to say so repeatedly over the course of this campaign. he was one of the nation's most prominent birthers. it actually launched him into national politics. his campaign is hoping with its new statement on his belaugh they'll help put this issue to rest. with donald trump fanning the flames of the birther movement for years, his campaign, over night, t fires. the trump team issuing a reversal saying, "mr. trump believes president obama was born in the united states." the statement also crediting trump for a "great service to the president and the country" by getting president obama to release his birth certificate and falsely accusing hillary clinton's 2008 campaign of first raising the issue. notably the statement comes from the campaign, not from trump himself who in a "washington post" interview just 24 hours earlier still refused to say
7:04 am
u.s. i'll answer that question at the right time, he said. "i just don't want to answer it yet." with the race tightening, trump is trying to seal his biggest deal yet. >> you better make sure i win on november 8th because i'm going to have wasted a hell of a lot of time, energy and money. >> reporter: even as trump touts new momentum, a new polls shows 61% of likely voters believe the insurgent outsider is not qualified to be president. a majority say trump rival. thursday night in new hampshire the billionaire ditching reporters arriving before the press plane. >> they called us and said, could you wait? i said absolutely no. let's get going. >> reporter: in an economic speech, the businessman promising to create 25 million jobs. but offering few specifics. late thursday, trump also standing up for his adult children. >> boy, the press likes to hit them and they're such good kids. but they can take it. >> reporter: that just hours after son donald junior came
7:05 am
made about clinton. >> the media has built her up, they've let her slide on every indiscrepancy, on every lie, on every dnc game trying to get bernie sanders out of the thing. i mean if republicans were doing that, they'd be warming up the gas chamber right now. >> the antidefense nation league demanding an apology. don junior tells nbc news the remark he was referring to capital punishment. this morning the white house is declining to comment on the statement but this birther issue was always viewed as a rishlly charged insinuation. in that new interview out this morning, donald trump says that his support among african-american voters has come up "like a rocketship." in fact, his support with african-americans stands at just 6%. exactly what mitt romney got four years ago. >> peter, thank you very much. hillary clinton was quick to hammer trump over the birther
7:06 am
trail for the first time since taking a few days off to recover from that pneumonia. nbc's kristen welker is in washington for us. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: willie, good morning to you. with her poll numbers lagging, hillary clinton is aiming to get back on message today but she's also wasting no time pouncing on trump's latest controversy. >> reporter: hillar hillary clinton back on the trail and taking aim at donald trump for again refusing to say president obama was born in the united states. >> he still wouldn't say america. when will he stop this ugliness, this bigotry? >> reporter: and clinton's campaign lashing out after the trump campaign released a statement trying to walk back trump's comments. clinton's spokesperson tweeting out overnight, tweet needs to say it himself on camera and admit he was wrong for trying to delegitimatize the country's first african-american
7:07 am
conclusively in november in an election that sends a message that even he can hear. >> reporter: clinton also poked fun at one of trump's surrogates. >> if you do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks every corner. >> reporter: who warned of taco trucks on every corner if clinton's immigration plan is enacted. >> i personally think a taco truck on every corner sounds absolutely delicious. >> reporter: her opening act thursday -- president obama -- who also had harsh words for the gop nominee. >> we've seen this anger and vitriol before. we can't let that brand of politics win. >> reporter: clinton resetting her campaign thursday. ? i feel good ?? >> reporter: following three days off the trail after being diagnosed with pneumonia. >> even i had to admit that maybe a few days of rest would do me good. >> reporter: clinton also trying to reverse these damaging optics by touting her strength.
7:08 am
quitting. and i will never give up. >> reporter: and president bill clinton giving her an assist, defending secretary clinton when she was criticized after calling half of trump's supporters deplorable, a statement which hillary clinton retracted herself. >> she did what any grown-up would do. you cannot be in a presidential campaign where you, your family, your friends have been debased, demeaned, vilified, called crooked. >> reporter: clinton is also trying t democrats who are nervous over those tightening polls yesterday telling reporters she always expected this race to be close. today she will be here in washington, d.c. on monday she heads to philadelphia to court those all-important millennial voters, some of whom are veering toward third party candidates. willie? savannah? >> kristen welker, thanks. mark halperin, steve
7:09 am
head again. but in some ways it never went away because trump has been asked repeatedly over the course of this campaign, do you still have concerns, do you still think maybe president obama is not an american citizen. and he always dodges the question. and now you have the campaign saying, oh, no, he does. i mean what's going on here? is he trying to have it both ways, i guess is the question? >> he has been up until now but i think we've reached the point where he has to say it himself. he's made the point in the past, "other people don't speak for me." i think he will. he risks alienating those who liked him for his posture. >> he has been given an opportunity over and over again as recently i guess as yesterday. >> two reasons. he doesn't want to alienate people who still believe president obama was not born in the united states. the other thing is what is trump's campaign about fundamentally? strength. this would be the biggest admission of being wrong about a very important thing for his political arc that he's ever made. i think he just doesn't want to do it.
7:10 am
i think he will. >> you talk about a day of mixed messages from the campaign, kellyanne conway comes out and says, yes, donald trump believes president obama was born in the united states. donald trump says, i'm not going to answer that question right now. i'll answer it when the time is right. later a statement from the campaign said, actually, donald trump should be given credit because he forced president obama to produce that birth certificate. what is the answer? will we get clarity on that today from the candidate himself? >> let's be clear on what happened here. when donald trump made that campaign on the birther issue a few years ago produced a birth certificate, donald trump didn't stop. he kept talking and tweeting for years after the fact saying that he was turning up new information that the certificate the president produced was false. so this narrative they are trying to put out there this was donald trump trying to do some sort of public service -- he took something happening sort underground in 2008, 2009, 2010 and exploded that on to the mainstream.
7:11 am
address this today how exactly he will phrase this. this is not something at all he seems happy or eager to do. >> no matter what donald trump says, whether he acknowledges what his staff says on his behalf or not, it is going to be another test for the country and the media what can he get away with. >> let's talk about the polls. they are tightening significantly. i think that's the trend in every poll, whether it is a battleground poll or a national poll. you have a lot of democrats who are saying, do we prematurely celebrate here? trump can really win this thing. >> h even some republicans who don't like trump at all saying that. some prominent columnists. hillary clinton came out yesterday and was very good. we're not talking much about it because of this birther thing. after three days of reflection, she realized i can lose this. the only way i can win is i have to fight for it. that is a reality for democrats. watch to see in the next few days is she consistently fighting to win this? because if she doesn't consistently fight to win it, she could lose. >> who does she have to convince
7:12 am
that getting very close? >> this is the new dynamic now. the name of the game for trump is flip blue states. he now leads in the average of all polls in florida, ohio, iowa. that's not enough to get him to 270 but he is closer to that number than he has been this entire campaign. >> things getting very interesting again. we'll wait to see what trump says today on the birther issue. a major development this morning to tell you about involving those samsung galaxy note 7 phones that unexpectedly commission is now issuing a formal government recall saying the devices pose an immediate risk and should not be used. nbc's tom costello on the story for us this morning. tom, good morning. >> we can't even get our hands on one to demonstrate because they've all been recalled. over 1 million phones involved in the recall. the government now telling customers nationwide, return
7:13 am
>> reporter: for the biggest cell phone manufacturer. >> just wanted to post this and share what just happened to my note 7. >> reporter: what began as a big black eye is now an official government recall. roughly 1 million galaxy note 7s in the u.s., 2.5 million worldwide. samsung says it has 92 reports of the phones overheating. dozens of reports of fires. including a garage that burned to the ground in south carolina. and a jeep that was charred and gutted in florida. >> because such a serious fire hazard, i am urging all consumers, all consumers to take advantage of this recall right away. >> we apologize, especially to those of you who were personally affected by this. and we will work every day to earn back your trust. >> reporter: samsung blames the fires on a defect inside its lithium ion batteries which operate at a very high 4 volts.
7:14 am
lot of energy is stored inside a tiny little device. >> reporter: samsung says the replacement phones arriving wednesday will come with new batteries made by a different supplier. meanwhile, concern this morning about other samsung models that may also catch fire. in new york, a 6-year-old suffered first degree burns when a samsung core allegedly caught fire. in florida tuesday night, a car gutted by fire after another galaxy phone allegedly exploded. meanwhile, a california man h second and third degree burns on his leg when his s7 edge caught fire. the cpsc says it is now looking into those reports as well. samsung declining to comment on those cases but tells me it is really only defective batteries in the note 7, which again is on the recall. customers can either exchange the note 7s for replacement or get a full refund. >> tom, the airlines had asked customers don't turn on the
7:15 am
does that change now that there is an official recall? could it be airlines say don't bring them on at all? >> i think so. the faa now expected to ban the use of the note 7 onboard commercial planes. that's no longer voluntary. banning the use of them. the fear is that a run-away fire involving batteries onboard a plane is just extremely dangerous. >> terrifying to even contemplate. thank you so much. now to the frightening scene here in new york city on thursday. a man attacked an off-duty police officer when a meat it happened near penn station at the height of the evening rush hour. police say officers confronted the man when they saw him trying to remove a boot from a car he apparently was living in. this video was taken moments before police confronted the 32-year-old. when they approached him, he pulled out an 11-inch meat cleaver and ran. after a brief chase, the suspect hit one detective in the face with the cleaver. three police officers opened fire wounding him. he is in critical condition. the detective who was hit with
7:16 am
serious condition. also this morning, the house intelligence committee is urging president obama not to pardon former nsa contractor edward snowden. a committee report accuses snowden of leaking information that caused tremendous damage to u.s. national security. the report says snowden is not a whistle-blower as he claims. a bipartisan letter sent to the president says that snowden's claim that he disclosed information to protect americans is "undercut by his actions." snowden's att a genuine american hero. a school bus driver in new jersey is out of a job this morning after dramatic video surfaced showing the driver swerving across the yellow line into the wrong lane to get ahead of a slower moving fedex truck. the bus company said it fired the driver wednesday night after seeing the video. there were no students on board at the time. fedex says it is looking into the incident and police are
7:17 am
check of the weekend weather. >> the weekend is looking 50%-50%. for this morning, most of the heavier rain is up near green bay. des moines seeing some of the heavy rain as well. it will approach big cities of chicago and st. louis later on today with isolated stronger storms, though nothing looks all that severe. we still will have heavier downpours, you could see a gusty wind or clears out back through the midwest. but then showers move into the ohio river valley stretching down into western kentucky and western tennessee by saturday evening. as we go into sunday, that's when the rain is going to make its way up and down the east coast. it is actually much needed rain because we've got extreme drought conditions, especially across parts of eastern new england. we could see as much as a half-inch, up to an inch of rain. again, that is much needed and

8:15 am
>> i feel like -- well, i know the story. i know what you're getting to. i read the story because i think it is very personal. i all of the time because i feel like i'm in a very fortunate position and sometimes people are having a bad day and you don't know what their day is like before they started their shift. so i'm usually pretty generous. but i feel like, i would think i would a total dork if i didn't, i would definitely -- >> the worst the service is, the more i tip. >> one nfl star was shamed on social media for leaving a small tip. deangelo williams ate in pittsburgh with a bill for $130. he left a tip of 75 cents. his waitress complained on facebook calling him cheap. after online backlash he tweeted the service was terrible. he waited an hour and a half. if it was good she would have

8:18 am
the '80s. the state's parole board said the actor didn't respond to a letter asking if it he wanted to keep his petition open so that matter has been closed. earlier this week wahlberg told reporters he regrets pursuing the pardon and said something good did come out of it like needing to apologize to one of his victims. this week we got the first trailer to the sequel of "50 shades for the most viewed trailer in 24 hours. 114 million views. that's 2 million more than "star wars." that movie from our sister company, universal, hits theaters in february. remember the first time we did our screening for "50 shades"? it was me, natalie and you and 1,000 female "today" show viewers. >> i watched it alone with matt. that's even worse. trust me. >> i was like i'm going for

8:20 am
showers and storms right through the middle of the country and those will continue to move towards chicago and st. louis and the rest of the midwest later on this afternoon. temperature rise, things are looking all right. it is very, very comfortable across the northeast and back through the ohio river valley. 70s and 80s. little warmer down south. slightly above average. but we've got 60s and 70s across the rest of the country and we are going to see a chance of stronger storms today. a few isolated severe storms, although we aren't looking at widespread severe storms today. just a heavier gusty gusty winds.
8:21 am
>> and that's your latest forecast. savannah? >> all right, dylan. thank you. . as we all know from watching miley cyrus grow up in the public eye, she's already an accomplished singer, songwriter, actress and philanthropist and now she is adding a new title to her resume. >> miley's joining this season >> you look like a rock 'n' roll dolly parton to me. it was high and sweet but it had so much vibe and power. dolly did "stairway to heaven." that's my girl. i might have something perfect for you. can you just turn around and look at that screen really quickly? >> hi, everybody, this is dolly and you have just got to pick miley because she's my god daughter. >> that's a fun fact.
8:22 am
>> any time you need it, you're like -- run dolly. >> i said i need an automatic dolly. >> that is why blake shelton is terrified of you. nobody even closely country was there and -- >> it's been interesting. adam is really competitive. i think alicia, too. that's not what really people know her for. greatest thing about "the voice" is we get to show people all different sides of us and our genre. i've been really lucky because i think my team, carson, as you know, i think i have the most diverse team. all sounds. a little bit of efrg and very genre fluid, very open and very cool. >> which reflects your taste. >> what kind of coach do you think you are? what i love about "the voice," not saying this just because you're here, but it feels like the coaches really actually care. they want to be mentors. >> carson knows, i'm one that cries all the time because i get really attached.
8:23 am
filming, i go there and i check in with my team and i'm constantly texting with them and making sure they feel good. just making sure that on the day there is no surprises. if they have any ideas, we work them out before and also i tell them we rehearse but it is about being spontaneous, too. when you're up there and in the moment, don't think so much about every little note you've been given. you have to have the freedom yourself. >> miley was a mentor on the previous season. as gosh, we've never seen an artist care so much, so fast. >> did he have to convince you though? >> no. i was convinced, because this show, i don't think people at home realize how real this is. i wouldn't be doing this if it this wasn't -- what it looks like is what it is. there are no producers coming up and telling me what to say or who to pick next. those blind auditions, you don't know who they're going to be when you turn around. it is all so real. even i came in with preconceived ideas of what i thought the show
8:24 am
mentored. so i wanted to be a part of it. i also think it is a part of my philanthropy life. it's being there for people and encouraging them to be who they are. >> you are doing some acting as well. you're in a new series. tell me about it. >> i'm in a series called "crisis" directed and starring woody allen. it's really parallel to what life is right now. i'm a female revolutionary character in the '60s but i feel with woody, i think they want to hear you had to dig deep into this character and i didn't. because it was kind of written for me. he said that he kind of had me in mind when he was writing this because it is -- it is the same kind of politics that we're dealing with now. it was very strange to be watching current news and also reflecting so much on the past at the same time because there was so many rallies and things going on here in america at the time i was filming. so it was really incredible.
8:25 am
liam hemsworth put up a really cute picture of you guys the other day. a throwback i guess to when you first met. >> yes. >> super, super cute. >> thank you. >> and everybody of course -- this is the part where i'm getting slightly into your business. they see a ring on your finger. >> this he see three rings. >> do you have anything to tell? feel free to tell. >> i go the this one because it was really cute. then i got this one because it was really cute. >> nothing else to say about the other? >> i didn't pick this out. >> that's really cute. >> "the voice" starts you said you don't do red carpets anymore. should i change the color of our carpet? >> is there an opportunity to be on the red carpet again? it is really not about the color of the carpet. it is more about the way that -- especially women we get yelled at to blow them a kiss. i don't feel like blowing you a kiss. >> you mean the photographers? >> yeah. they yell "blow us a kiss." it's like who are you?

>> two under 2. yes. i'm ready. >> i'm here to help you. we have a traditional nursery decor seat and modern decor. >> a lot of this is do it yourself. >> this is a canopy. this is something that was just made right out of tulle. the key here is this is fabric from the fabric store. we made a floral crown at the right now. these types of colors are really soothing for the baby. stick with pastels. we actually pinned l.e.d. lights to this. one safety tip is to secure this on to the wall. you don't want your baby grabbing this and it falling in the crib. i want to show this as well. then this is so easy to do. it literally takes less than $10. the floral crown itself is like a floral garland wrapped around
8:40 am
mesh lining? >> a lot of people don't know about this but they make these mesh liners which are breathable for your baby. if it rolls over to the edge of the crib, you don't want it to suffocate. definitely make sure to invest in a mesh liner and make sure your baby has that open ventilation. >> after people give birth, you are given a lot of flowers. >> sticking with the floral theme, we went with some floral decor. them into art. i love the idea of taking the bouquets that your family and friends give you when you have the baby, drying them out and hanging them upside down in the nursery. this is a simple wooden plank. we hung the flowers just with some twine. and it is beautiful. it also has a nice floral scent for the baby. >> a nice natural scent, too. instead of the phony fragrances of all the wipes and everything. amanda on our "today" parenting
8:41 am
repurpose an old curio cabinet. >> you can find these on craigslist, or a flea market. you may even have one in your house. this year we repurposed it into a dresser which is really great because it has see through windows. you can always see where things are. you don't have to dig through drawers. we painted the backdrop a light soft pink to match the theme of the nursery. you get that nice pop of color. >> i love that. mine if i had an open cabinet would just be a ball of clothes. >> organized. over here is more of a modern take on the nursery. i'll start with some of the wall decor because this is a little unusual. we used drawer knobs and turned them into these colorful pegs you can use for virtually anything. >> how do you attach those to the wall? >> use an anchor. change the screw in the back of the doorknob and it passes right into the knob. these cost literally dollars. you might even have some around
8:42 am
>> nice. then i see shapes and hexagons and triangle type shelving. >> geometric shelving is really popular in the decor market right now. i love the idea of playing it up for your nursery. use succulents. you can bring some of these natural scents in to the nursery with greenery. suculents are easy to keep alive. you don't have to worry about watering the plants which is always nice. if you do some of these geometric shelves, it is a huge trend right nown >> furniture wise, a nice space saver with the corner changing table. >> nurseries are usually the smaller rooms in the house. >> yes. it is very small. >> you into ed to maximize all the space you can. this is a corner changing table. it is so great. it comes with a hamper right underneath it because you are constantly changing your baby, of course, and it has everything you need. all kinds of compartments. fits right into the corner. amazing for maximiing your space.
8:43 am
crib i got. it is a convertible crib and changes as the kid grows. >> the great thing about these -- this is the same crib that we used in the other nursery. you can see as an infant crib over here. it converts to a toddler crib. and then when your baby has outgrown the toddler crib -- notice the safety rail here so your child doesn't roll out of the bed like mine does -- then you can actually take that off and it turns into a day bed for an older kid as well. >> you also cool technology in here. i don't know where the monitor is. but this is more than just getting a picture of your baby. >> this is more than just a baby monitor. this is pretty new on the market. it is not only a video monitor that you can access from your phone, but it tracks your baby's sleep patterns and the movement. it knows how well your baby has been sleeping and it can give you a whole readout on how many times it woke up during the

rocket in chicago is here with a great one-pot meal. >> what are we making today? >> this is one of my favorite dishes at rocket. it is hearty, it's got some spice but it is really healthy with ingredients like chicken, garlic, green peppers, jalapenos, tomatillos, all kinds of good stuff. first we're just going to do season with a little salt and pepper. i'm using chicken thighs here. i like chicken thighs because they're just tastier. and we're just going to brown them on each side which will also kick up the flavor profile a bit. you're just doing this right here in your pot. you are going to use the same pot the whole time. once you brown it, it will look great. add some chicken stock to cook it all the way through.
8:48 am
separate it. you can use turkey or pork, if you want, by the way. totally mix it up. then you go et to your vegetables. we've got green peppers, on onions, just sweat that out to get nice and tender. then hit it with a little bit more salt. then just add the garlic, jalapenos for a little bit more heat, cayenne for some heat. want it to sweat at the appropriate rate and also get the good mix going. tomatillo -- >> you're putting some spice in here. >> i know. >> we are also going to be sweating at the appropriate rate. >> i know. then shredded chicken. you can use rotisserie chicken if you want to cut all those steps. or even leftover chicken. throw it all in. after about 30 minutes of turning the heat down and letting it simmer, now smell that. >> that's 30 minutes once you

chicken are break up, tomatillos will break down. add white beans, salt at the very end to taste. that's your chili, very healthy. but we could take it to the other level. if you want to drop it right on the nachos, i have amazing game day nachos. >> guys? >> billy, you deliver. >> phenomenal. >> you see that big nachos in front of you? i'll show you how to make it. in these nachos, jalapenos, tomatillo salsa, cilantro. >> in addition to what we've made here. >> yes. once you've done that, serve it up as chili or on nachos. add sour cream. mix that really slow and at a
8:50 am
add some chihuahua cheese. whatever you like. ready to go with the nachos. dig in. the guac. everything. >> talk about the key to stacking a nacho. sometimes it gets all dumped on the top and you are left but nothing beneath. >> you know what? this has some high walls which is nice. then you mix it up. then you just kind of slowly layer it in. you can't just go all in once. then you got to serve it right away so you get the nice balance of crunch and soft. >> carson, i think we are making this when we watch the game this weekend. >> i'll go to the store right now. >> so good. >> thanks. great to see you. get the full recipe at today.com/food. try it sunday night when the green bay packers take on the minnesota vikings right here on nbc at 7:00 with "football night in america."

8:55 am

9:02 am
it. >> i look forward to watching what would ryan do. >> he is good looking. we are so going to get in trouble. >> seriously. how are they going to put together like 13 weeks of programming? >> he's so cute. >> it was one of those things, you know when you get the giggles, it's almos church. be quiet. at the most -- i just couldn't stop. my co-anchor and the crew and everybody's laughing. it was just -- >> you're like "he's so cute." and a little slow on the uptake as well. >> i didn't know his little reputation. when i asked him do the cameras follow you in the bathroom? he said there is a sink, then there is a toilet, and i just -- and it was -- behind the scenes we were all thinking, oh, man.
9:03 am
were on camera. a lot of people said were you really on camera? oh, yeah. i am who i am. >> what is it like to have a video that's viewed over 5 million times? maybe like 10,000 for mine. >> keep in mind, when that happened years ago, that was kind of new. things going viral and being all over twitter. so i remember going home and i told my husband, i was like something happened on the show today. he is like, oh, stuff always happens. i was like, no, i think this is different. he goes whatever, no big deal. the next morning iok everywhere. then it died down. our executive producer of our weekend show just said last week he was on the train and there was a woman cracking up because she was looking at that video on her facebook page. cheers, guys, if you need a laugh. if i sound a little like lochte today, a little slow on uptake, i was out all night with
9:04 am
we both love the zac brown band. i looked at the schedule, there was a concert in charlotte, north carolina. we said we got to find some deserving moms, people, someone that we can take with us. we found these two moms. one of them, by the way, her husband is a huge zac brown fan. he didn't even know where she was going. when he found out, he was not thrilled. we took these moms to zac brown in charlotte, north carolina, last night. >> you got o >> last night with these women right here. that's sue on the left. that's kathy on the right. they've been through a tough, tough time. >> well, good for you guys. >> children with cancer. >> you will tell us more about that. >> more later on. but this was some night. hoda kotb is a liability. she is a selfie machine. it is great that we stopped for selfies all the time. >> there's zac brown on the
9:05 am
>> what time did you get back last night? >> the wheels touched down at midnight. >> you're kidding. so here's the thing. i'm looking at you thinking, that's the fancy life. you want to know my life? these are the kinds of things i do at midnight. my 4-year-old swallowed a quarter. swallowed a quarter. so i have been stressed out. i'm not going to lie. the other day i'm just going to get my nails done, i need a moment. i'm getting my nails done. i look at my cell phone and my husband said, um, our little guy just swallowed a quarter. i'm like -- what? the nail tech is like, wait, one more coat. i'm like, no, we don't have time for one more coat. >> did you get the quarter out? >> you want too skip to the end? >> no, i'm worried about the boy. >> we went to the e.r.

9:07 am
it doesn't even look like a quarter anymore. it is amazing what your stomach acids do. it looks like a big penny. like it's no longer silver. >> you know, that happened one time -- we had a new baby, too. we had a 4 and a 2-year-old. the 4-year-old gave the 2-year-old a penny who swallowed it maybe like get out of my life. i want to be the only child. i don't know what she's saying. all of a sudden my wife notices and she just, boom, across the down the throat. she said we're not going to risk this. i'm going all the way down. i still don't think she talks right. whipped this thing out of there. there is nothing scarier in the world than that. >> my husband did the heimlich and all that. didn't work. still scary for a few days. good old activia, plums and a blender and all is well. trump, the donald, was on "fallon" last night.
9:08 am

[ drum roll ] >> i was thinking is he the kind of guy that will play. would he play. and he did it. >> so smart to do that. >> you're right. >> i want to see him come out -- i want to see donald come out of the pool. when he comes up like that out of the father.
9:09 am
long. >> there is a little piece of me that wondered if it was real. see, i don't know the man. never seen him in person. so i think there are some people in america who, like me, just it was a little piece of us that wondered, wait a minute, i want to see if jimmy will go all the way. >> years before he let me lift up the top layer which is hardened with hairspray. but he let me lift it to see if the follicles were connected to come up with a conclusion that, yes, the hair was real. >> that it's real. >> but seeing it out of line is -- it's like seeing his legs. >> whoa! >> he has legs? in shorts? >> you see how quickly he fixed it? he didn't even need a mirror. >> he was in new hampshire later on. it took a village probably -- i don't think it entirely went back. >> does he have like a -- >> you see it is a little tighter right there? >> you're right. >> on the sides? >> that is amazing.

9:14 am
time being nominated. not tons of range but the story line was so great in a show that is a phenomenon. i think he probably will. >> a if he phenomenon is a good word for it. people are obsessed with "game of thrones." i think i'm the only person on the planet -- >> no, nice to meet you. billy bush. can't do it. >> the thing is if you watch it all the time and are into the story line, it's complicated. my husband is obsessed with it. at night under i make him put in his ear buds. he's obsessed. he finds time to watch it and i tried to watch for the first time and i'm lost. >> now the ship has sailed. i just can't catch up. too much work. >> one day maybe? >> no. i don't think so. but "the walking dead," i haven't even either. can't do that one either.

9:17 am
over and double it. it is easy math. 20% works for me. >> "the washington post" came out with the basic rules of tipping to help us all out. 20% right now with a full bill. what they didn't touch on is, do you tip 20% on the wine, too? like if if you order wine, it's not the same as preparing the food. just opening and pouring. >> do you do 15% for that? >> some people do 10% on the wine, 20% on the food? i think 20% across the board. not ready, you have a water or something while you wait. then they give you a bill? you still tip for carryout? apparently you are supposed to. 10% for carry out. >> i'll start doing 10%. probably 15% just to make up for what i just said. >> so we don't talk about you when you walk away. >> i tell you who is a great, great tipper? dylan. >> my buddy. >> she always tips like 45%. if you see dylan in your
