service. those stories plus a cosby juror speaks out. johnny depp under fire. and a golden rule of golf broken. you won't believe who's behind the wheel today, friday, june 23, 2017. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on this friday morning. we thank you for joining us. as a golfer, gasping over that last story, but i'll save my outrage for later. >> well, president trump's probably thinking, it's my golf course, i'll drive if i want to. >> we've got a lot to get to. let's start with the battle over that new health care bill from senate republicans. >> it actually keeps the basic structure of the affordable care act, obamacare, the republicans have railed against, but there are sweeping
that required people to buy insurance. it gradually deepens the cuts to medicaid, and it defunds planned parenthood. >> so what's ahead, a vote could come as early as next week but republican leaders have got some work to do while president trump is voicing his support, several gop senatoris saying they'll oppose the bill. >> some of the nation's top medical groups are also weighing in this morning, finding fault with the plan. the aarp is telling every senator to vote no. >> our political team ready to break it all down and we'll also talk to senator rand paul, one of the republicans who's come out against the bill, but let's begin with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the senate republican health care bill is out, but many republicans simply aren't buying it. jeopardizing what leaders had hoped would be a quick vote to pass it. this morning, the president is praising the plan, conce
little negotiation is needed but again blasting obamacare as a "disaster." hosting a picnic for members of congress, president trump giving a grilling. >> some really great people, i have to say. mostly. mostly. couple of bad ones, but that's okay. >> reporter: days after calling the house health care bill mean, tweeting, i'm very supportive of the senate version. but even after legislative surgery, senate republicans long-awaited obamacare replacement already flat lining. >> we promised to repeal obamacare. the current bill looks like we're keeping large parts of obamacare. >> reporter: four gop senators immediately arguing as is, it falls short. mr. trump telling fox news he hopes those senators will come around. >> well, they're also four good guys and they're four friends of mine and i think that they'll probably get there. we'll have to see. you know, health care is a very difficult situation. >> reporter: but the president's party can only afford to lose two votes or it fails. >> i can not support all
millions of people losing their health insurance. >> reporter: so, what's in the bill? while it keeps key republican promises like ending a mandate to buy insurance and defunding plan t parenthood, the senate plan slashes health care subsidies for low and middle class americans. as for giving states money to expand medicaid, that would gradually end, beginning in 2020 and the cuts would be even deeper than in the house plan. and opioid addiction, $2 billion. just a fraction of what some republicans wanted to cover a growing national crisis. the senate's bill does include protections for those with preexisting conditions, but no longer mandates states to require coverage for maternity care, mental health treatment, and e.r. visits. >> keep it off the senate floor. >> reporter: late thursday, protesters confronting lawmakers
and earlier on capitol hill, more than 40 people, some in wheelchairs, arrested and dragged from outside the office of the senate's republican leader. democrats defiant. >> these cuts are blood money. people will die. >> reporter: the senate plan even drawing a fierce rebuke from president obama. the senate bill unveiled today is not a health care bill, he wrote on facebook. "it's a massive transfer of wealth from middle class and poor families to the richest people in america. simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family, this bill will do you harm." to be clear, supporters argue this bill will help fix a failing health care system while lowering premiums for many americans despite the president's early praise, the republicans' plan notably does not line up with one of candidate trump's major promises, that he would not cut medicaid. bottom line, one way
mitch mcconnell looking for a vote on this next week. let's turn to republican senator rand paul who's with us from washington. good morning to you. you are one of four republicans who oppose this bill because you think essentially it's obamacare lite. it's not going far enough. let me quote the rolling stones for you, though. you can't always get what you want. if it comes down to this bill or no bill at all, would you really rather do nothing? >> well, i don't think the choices are binary. i think the choices are, do they want our votes or they don't want our votes. they have to have at least two of the four of us and so that means the bill has to get better and it has to get more to our liking. the current bill keeps the fundamental flaw of obamacare. the fundamental flaw of obamacare is that if you can get insurance after you get sick, you will, and without the individual mandate, that sort of adverse selection, the death spiral, the elevated premiums, all of that that's going on gets worse under this bill, and so what this bill does is it d
stabilization fund and says, oh, we'll have cheaper insurance if we subsidize it. well, you could have cheaper cars if you have a stabilization fund for cars or iphones or education. that typically has not been a republican idea just to empty the treasury to lower prices. >> but the reality -- >> particularly because we have a $500 billion deficit already this year. >> but the reality of it, senator, is if you and your conservative colleagues get what you want, in this bill, then moderates are not going to get what they want. so, how is mitch mcconnell supposed to navigate that catch-22 in seven days? >> well, i think we ought to evaluate what we were for and what we have been for. for six years, we've run on repealing obamacare. we didn't run on keeping obamacare. so, right now, as the bill stands, the obamacare subsidies that the democrats saying everybody's going to die because we don't have enough subsidies, we have equal subsidies or exceeding obamacare subsidies, even jonathanr
yesterday, it looks like they're keeping it. we have more government subsidies in our bill, perhaps, than obamacare has. our bill may cost more in the first two years than obamacare cost. that's not repeal. >> let me ask you about essential benefits. under this plan that coverage for existing conditions stays, but states have the right to waive many of the essential benefits mandated by the aca, preventive care, maternity care, prescription drug coverage, substance abuse and mental health treatment. when you look at that list, isn't that the very essence of health care coverage? >> well, here's the problem. and i think president obama had a big heart and many democrats want to help people, but when you add mandates to insurance, you make it more expensive. so, let's say i make $30,000 a year and you add 12 mandates, my insurance has to include 12 things that you think are good for me. what if my insurance now costs $10,000 and i say, what the heck, i can't afford
also because you tell me, you know what, if you get leukemia, you can just buy in later. we add regulatory mandates that elevate the cost so poor people can't buy it and healthy young people won't buy it but then we say to everyone, it's okay, you can get it after you're sick. that is a terrible sort of situation. that is perverse incentives are what are destroying the insurance market. >> senator, you've talked about that. you just said that this republican plan keeps all those subsidies, continues to poor federal government money into health care, and yet you have president trump, who has promised insurance for everybody. he promised on the campaign, everyone will be beautifully covered. that is a quote. >> i don't disagree with the president. i'm actually for insurance for everyone. my goal is the least expensive insurance to the most people. >> does this bill do that? >> but you know what does that better than any government program? when supply and demand meet, you get the most goods distributed to the most amount of people at the least
that's when you have freedom in the marketplace to let prices go up and down. you let the consumer choose based on price. and i'll give you an example of where it works. lasik surgery. that's a surgery that i did to help people get rid of their glasses. the price has gone down by 75% over the last 15 years because consumers pay for it and they shop according to price. >> real quickly, makes sense, but pre-obamacare, didn't we have essentially a market system? >> not really. >> we didn't have insurance for everybody. >> this is sort of the misunderstanding. a lot of people, and we were part of this, we blamed everything on obamacare, but really the system was failing before obamacare. obamacare didn't make it better. i think it got worse. but the thing is, we're keeping fundamentally the problems. we had a fork in the road. before obamacare, the system was failing. insurance rates were going through the roof. under obamacare, it continued. what you really want is you want the consumer to be connected to the product. when the consumer cares about the price, there's competition,
if we have a sufficient belief in the market system that has made all, you know, has given america her greatness, we can make health care great in this country but you have to embrace freedom and capitalism. >> two seconds, is this going to pass. >> the bill has a chance and i'm still open to it but it has to be drug in the direction of free markets, capitalism, choice, and you got to get rid of the regulations that are causing the prices to go up too much. >> senator rand paul, thank you so much. we got to jump. but thank you. appreciate it. >> good to see you. thanks. chuck, good morning to you. you just heard senator paul's reservations. how's this going to play out over the next seven days. >> look, i think you're going to hear -- you've got moderates that are not happy with it. susan collins, a moderate from maine, a moderate from alaska, you have the conservative angst here. i think rand paul has set a high bar for his support and i think mitch mcconnell, the senate majority leader, is almost trying to find a path to enough
so i don't think this bill's going to get more conservative. if anything, i think it's possible this bill somehow gets more generous on the medicaid front, because you're going to have a couple of key governors, ohio, nevada, republican governors that have expanded medicaid, who have republican senators in their states who are sort of on the fence on this. i think that's the path that happens here. but i tell you this. mitch mcconnell, he's doing this in a week on purpose. it's sort of shock and awe. you either get it done in a week or it goes away in a week. >> lot to watch over the next seven days. chuck, thank you very much. of course he's going to have much more on the new health care fight this sunday on meet t"mee press." the president making some controversial claims in a new interview. this after he finally acknowledged, no, he did not make secret recordings of his meetings with the former fbi director, james comey. nbc's chief white house correspondent hallie jackson's got that part of the story this morning. hi, hallie. good morning.
trump appears to be questioning the credibility of special counsel robert mueller, accusing him of being too cozy with fired fbi director james comey. that's after republican leaders like paul ryan say mueller should be allowed to do his job and all that comes as the president facing a deadline today is finally putting to rest a tapes mystery more than a month in the making. new this morning, president trump raising doubts about special counsel robert mueller in an interview with fox news. >> he's very, very good friends with comey, which is very bothersome. >> reporter: a former intelligence official tells nbc news mueller is investigating the president for possible obstruction of justice. >> there's been no collusion, no obstruction and virtually everybody agrees to that. >> reporter: these comments coming after a 41-day drama. the president finally putting an end to a mystery he created when he implied there may have been tapes of his conversations with the fbi director he
and do not have, any such recordings." >> i'm curious why it took so long, 41 days, for this to be laid to rest. >> you guys asked for an answer. he gave you one. >> reporter: the president had until today to tell the house intelligence committee about any recordings that might have existed of his talks with james comey. >> if the president didn't make tapes, then why did he hang the idea of tapes over james comey's head? was he trying to intimidate him? >> reporter: the original tweet came may 12, "james comey better hope that there are no tapes of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press." comey says when he saw that, he gave his memos, documenting conversations with the president, to a friend to share publicly. >> i thought, that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. >> reporter: for now, a he said/he said battle that tapes could have settled. >> i've seen the tweet about tapes. lordy, i hope there are tapes. >> reporter: and this morning, new concerns about what president trump talked about with his director of national inig
familiar with the conversation, dan coates told congressional investigators behind closed doors, president trump seemed obsessed with the russia probe and repeatedly asked coates to say publicly there was no evidence of collusion. and this morning, we are also taking a look at our latest nbc news poll, giving a snapshot into how americans view president trump. just 31% of people polled gave him high marks for being honest and trustworthy. back to you. north korea has carried out another rocket engine test. apparently within the last 24 hours. this is the latest in a series of engine and missile trials by that regime this year. u.s. officials say this type of engine could be used for a space launch, but they fear it might actually be part of north korea's program to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile. meantime, a second american test of a new missile defense system failed this week when it was unable to shoot
missile over the pacific ocean. tens of millions across the eastern half of the country are facing a day of heavy rain as the remnants of tropical storm cindy are pushing inland. that massive system has already caused major problems in the south, widespread flooding, even powerful tornados. we're going to get al's forecast in just a moment. but let's start with the weather channel's reynolds wolf. he's in alabama this morning. reynolds, good morning. we can see the destruction behind you. >> reporter: absolutely. and as you can see from high above, the sheer randomness of the damage, some places it is just obliterated but other places, you can even see bottles in this liquor store, still in perfect formation. 11,000 people called this community home and it is amazing that with this coming through, with the confirmed ef-2 winds, there was no loss of life but four injuries. all this spawned from a tropical system that made landfall hundreds of miles from this spot. this morning, the fast-moving storm, what's left of tropical storm cindy, is
south. and still packing a very dangerous punch. through the night, tornado watches and warnings keeping residents in the atlanta area on edge. just west of birmingham, alabama, an ef-2 tornado collapsing walls and blowing away roofs. >> we're looking at 120 miles per hour, pretty considerable damage. >> all of a sudden, the wind started getting stronger. >> reporter: residents shaken by close calls. >> when i looked up, it was a stick of wood had gone through my windshield of my car, and i'm just blessed to be here to tell this story. >> reporter: this liquor store was levelled but these bottles untouched. >> the tornado came and tore down the walls and left the liquor bottles up, you know, standing up. that's amazing to me. >> reporter: thousands are without power, but no serious injuries. around the gulf coast, the remnants of cindy unleashing torrential rains, causing flash flooding throughout the area. wind whipping up the surf. now the sun is beginning t
clean-up, as you can tell, is right behind me. they've got a long way to go. problem is the people that call this community home and many others across the south, we've got another round of severe weather possible today for parts of tennessee and, yes, back here in the great state of alabama. mr. roker, what's left of cindy? where's she headed? >> she's heading east and it's going to interact with another system and that's going to cause the big problems. we've got the remnants of cindy smack dab in the center of arkansas. we are looking today at a slight risk for birmingham, tupelo, all the way up to charleston, 11 million people at risk. isolated tornados, damaging wind, so the remnants of cindy hook up with this frontal system and push in strong storms, especially by later this evening on into parts of pennsylvania all the way down into atlanta, through saturday. the showers and thunderstorms will linger through the coast. we right now have flash flood threats from warnings to
for 800 miles for 30 million people and the rainfall amounts through sunday, especially up as you get into the northeast, we're looking at 5 to 7 inches of rain through the mississippi, ohio, tennessee river valleys as well and that may be causing some more flooding as we head on into sunday. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. good morning. 73 degrees right now in the district. it's cloudy, a lot of the rain is making its way out of the beltway, but it is still
towards ana police right now. even as you go a little bit further south but a lot of this is starting to kind of dry out of the area. so for today, just as morning showers otherwise humid and windy, 88 for a high temperature. we still could see an isolated shower on thunderstorm later this afternoon, and early tomorrow morning, expect the rain when you wake up. clearing for sunday. >> that's your latest weather. >> thank you. coming up, a startling claim from north korea overnight, why the regime is now saying it is the biggest victim in otto warmbier's death. and why johnny depp's in hot water for what he just said about the president. but first, on a friday morning, this is "today" on nbc. is "today" on nbc.

we're back on "today," 7:30, friday morning, june 23, 2017. so glad it's friday. no one ever says that about tuesday. >> half the people in the control room already gone for the weekend. >> exactly. let's see if we can get through these headlines. the storm cindy weakened overnight but it still remains a threat to millions. flood watches as the storm stretches from louisiana to pennsylvania. on thursday, cindy hammered the south with hearains and heavy winds. lawyers for brendon dassy, one of the men featured in the netflix series, "making a murderer" say they're going to take immediate steps to secure his release, that announcement after a federal
ruled that his confession was improperly contained. he was sentenced to prison ten years ago after. that happened back in 2005. and more than 600 employees at a carrier plant in indianapolis will bracing for layoffs, that news just six months after then president-elect trump announced a deal that he said would save nearly all jobs at that plant and keep them from going to mexico. a union president says, once those layoffs are complete later this year, just a few hundred jobs will actually remain at that plant. breaking news overnight in the otto warmbier case. north korea is again denying that it cruelly treated oratortur or tortured the detainee. in fact, the regime says it is the biggest victim in his death. this all happened just hours after warmbier was laid to rest. nbc's katie beck is in his hometown of wyoming, ohio. katie, good morning

up right now for seattle, vegas, 111, make that 112 degrees, albuquerque will be close to 100. seattle, 14 degrees above average, tucson will be 112. we'll finally start to see things start to cool down as we get into next week by tuesday. portland at 74, but phoenix, las vegas, still stay in the triple digits. that's what's going on around the country. here's what's happening in your neck of the woods. here's the latest check of storm team4 radar. still tracking scattered showers out there right now, heading out, grab that small umbrella but as we head into the lates hours, we're looking at dry conditions across the area, rain here inside of the beltway traveling along route 1 along the bw parkway dealing with some of those showers but by the afternoon, it's breezy, mainly dry, humid, with temperatures in the upper 80s. then as we look to our saturday, some rain potentially around early. otherwise breezy, sunday looking perfect. >> that's your weekend weather. any time you needto
friends at the weather channel on cable. and now to this controversial comment from johnny depp that has the actor under fire this morning. he made an apparent joke about the assassination of a president and nbc's kirsten is following that story for us. good morning. >> reporter: the secret service telling nbc news this morning it is aware of johnny depp's comments, the actor is in the uk to promote a movie, but prompting a backlash overnight. johnny depp on stage at a music festival in the uk when, apparently speak in jest, he referred to assassinating president trump. when depp brings up trump's name, the audience jeered. >> i think he needs help. i don't know. dark, dark places he could go. >> reporter: then depp said this. >> by the way, this is going to be in the e
when was the last time an actor assassinated a president? ent? [ cheers ] now, i want no, i want to clarify. i'm not an actor. i lie for a living. however, it's been a while. and maybe it's time. >> reporter: it's just over a week since the shooting of the gop charity baseball practice that left house majority whip steve scalise seriously injured. he's still in the hospital. depp's comments lighting up social media overnight. one tweet, secret service, are you listening? another, disney, you might want to are rethink your relationship with johnny depp. and it was just last month another hollywood celebrity, cathy griffin, posted a video of herself holding a fake severed head of president trump. the backlash caused the
tour dates. johnny depp has parodied mr. trump before in this "funny or die" sketch from last year. but depp clearly knew his assassination comments would be controversial. now we have reached out. so far, no response from johnny depp or on social media. now, look, it's possible that he was referring to abraham lincoln's assassination in 1865. his killer was, of course, the actor john wilkes booth. at one point, depp saying, it's just a question. i'm not insinuating anything. but it wasn't clear if he was referring to assassination comment. >> i don't think you even get close to saying something like that. not okay. there we go again. just ahead, parents listen up. we've got a new list of potentially dangerous summer toys. you might be surprised what's at the top of that list. but first, the voice of america, the influential author opens up to mgy

cycle of drug abuse and how he managed to overcome it and that painful, personal, deeply personal story has become a run-away best seller. have you been surprised by how successful it's been? >> yes. how could i not be? >> why do you think? >> i'm sitting here talking to megyn kelly. this is great. >> when i finished the book, i felt a little worried about you. >> why? >> i wondered if you had really dealt with everything. >> that's a really good question. i've never been asked this. i think that the -- the honest answer is that i probably haven't dealt with everything. fwh but that that's part of growing up and living your life is you're constantly dealing with this stuff and you're constantly working through it. the book is not an effort to sort of finally work through all of these things that happened when i was a kid. it's the beginning of an effort that will probably take me for the rest of my life and okay i'm with that.
jd vance to the lectern. >> vance is in a unique position, a colossal success by my nsh, a marine, a graduate of ohio state and yale law school, a silicon valley venture capitalist and now an unusual move, back home again to ohio. back to columbus. >> yeah. >> why? >> well, one, it's -- about to have a baby, it's good to be close to family. but you know, the things that i care most about are not in san francisco. they're not in silicon valley. the things that i care most about are the opioid crisis, about solving some of the issues that i write about in the book and you can only do that, i think, when you're close to the problems and actually on the ground trying to help. >> reporter: two months ago, he started working for an investment firm dedicated to ohio opportunities. >> there should be more venture capitalist investing. >> reporter: and he's formed his own nonprofit, our ohio renewal. his return has started speculation
something political. everyone wants to know whether jd's going to run for office. >> who's everyone? >> reporter: everyone. everyone. trust me. i speak to them. >> okay. >> reporter: what do you think? should he run for office? >> i think some day, if the time is right, and if he really feels that that's the best way that he can contribute to his home, then i think that would be a great idea. >> i'm very flattered when people ask me and you never say never, but it's just not something that i think about doing right now. >> reporter: so we caught up with vance as he started this new chapter of his life and it was actually a surprisingly emotional interview about where he came from and where he's going. i'll tell you this, of all the interviews i've done so far for this sunday night show, this is the one that i've thought about him every day since i met him. >> i've just started to read that book and it grabs you bit the heart. >> he gets very emotional in this as well as his sister. >> we had a story
being the center of this opioid problem. you can see more of that interview on sunday night with megyn kelly at 7:00, 6:00 central time right here on nbc. dylan, good morning. >> good morning, guys. a major no-no that has golfers everywhere cringing. we'll show you who committed the faux pas right after this. and now it's finally here. the mercedes-benz summer event is back, with incredible offers on the mercedes-benz you've always longed for. but hurry, these shooting stars fly by fast. lease the c300 for $399 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing. out of sunscreen, going on a targetrun need anything? watermelon! water please! and soda! grandpa!! got it! get everyday low prices on everyday essentials, targetrun and done.

if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
>> i'm right there with you, matt. we all know that president trump loves the game of golf. he owns nearly 20 golf courses and has held countless tournaments so you would think that he would know the game's t etiquette pretty well. well, a newly surfaced video begs to differ. we have to warn you, for golfers out there, this may disturb you. take a look at this. driving all over the green at trump national golf club in new jersey. that is a major no-no for anyone who knows the game and as you can imagine, the reaction online to this video is a mash-up of sports etiquette and politics so let's dig right in. chris writes, this is unacceptable, driving on the green. sad. while aaron tweets, he owns the course, he can drive wherever he wants on it. makes a good point there. brian writing, i don't golf and even i know that's not acceptable and even some trump supporters saying, this is the first thing president trump has done that i didn't like. i feel guilty even walking on the green sometimes. how do you guys feel about this? >> yeah, that's
it's a nice golf course, by the way, but to take a heavy golf cart and to ride right across the green, that just breaks every rule of golf. >> except remember when we turfed it pretty good with the hovercraft. >> that wasn't on the green. that was on the course. that never came near the green. i can promise you that. >> you know, i guess i know it's not okay. i don't have the visceral reaction you do. >> it's his court. what the heck. >> i don't think matt is ever going to be the same again. >> but he likes beautiful golf courses so i think that would disturb him but apparently not. >> it is his golf course. coming up, the grand finale of our sizzling summer steals and deals. you won't believe today's bargains. and andy grammer warming up.

let us begin this half hour are your news at 8:00. senate republican leaders have started to task of persuading fellow party members to back their health care plan. hallie jackson is in washington for us with the latest on this. >> reporter: hi, good morning to you. and this morning, some republicans want president trump to step up and start working it, in the words of senator lindsey graham. that's because four republicans right now say they cannot support the new senate bill as it's written, but the gop can only afford to lose two of its own members, or else the bill fails. the president, in a new interview, was telling fox news he hopes those skeptical lawmakers change their minds, calling them friends of his. the senate version of the health care bill keeps a lot of the framework of obamacare in place with some significant changes. it will end a mandate to buy insurance, that was a key gop promise. it gradually phases out the money given to states to expand medicaid and makes deeper cuts to that program thath
it also defunds planned parenthood and while it protects people with preexisting conditions, it does not make states require coverage for maternity care, mental health treatment, and e.r. visits, but some of those elements are up for negotiation and that is exactly what's going to have to happen in the next week if republicans want to get this passed. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell would like the vote by the time lawmakers head out for their july 4th break. >> thank you. flash flood watches are stretching this morning from louisiana to pennsylvania. as what's left of tropical storm cindy works its way inland. cindy slammed the south, spinning off a tornado that destroyed buildings near birmingham, alabama. thousands of homes lost power but there were no serious injuries there. however, in western pennsylvania, one man was killed by flood waters that stranded drivers and even knocked freight cars off of train tracks. also this morning for the first time, we're hearing directly from a juror in bill cosby's sexual assault
about what led to the jury's deadlocking and the mistrial. nbc's stephanie covered every home of the trial for us. >> reporter: 52 hours of deliberations and no consensus. this morning, we are getting a look at what went on in that room from one of the jurors who was there. and why the prosecution that will likely retry this case as early as this fall has some challenges ahead. the deadlock was a win for bill cosby and his legal team. a juror now describes just how difficult it was, agreeing to disagree. >> crying, by men and by women, and more than one and the tears came towards the end, and it was so tense. >> reporter: the case, he says, came down to credibility. andrea alleges the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted her. co
the juror, who did not want to reveal his identity, spoke with nbc's affiliate. he says the jury was split down the middle with no chance of a consensus. >> it was hopeless. it was from the first time on. >> reporter: he made it clear he was among those who sided with cosby's defense. >> very, very honest, from his side. you could believe from his -- from his testimony what he did, but not from hers. >> reporter: the juror doubted expert testimony that said it was reasonable for a victim to delay reporting a sexual assault. andrea waited a year before going to police. >> that's hard for me to believe. that i've been injured and it takes me a year to report it. >> reporter: but there were jurors who disagreed, like alternate juror mike mccloskey who was not a part of the deliberations. he was left with a very different impression of andrea. >> i felt her to be a very, very honest person and i felt like
shaking his head and i felt like that she was very honest when she spoke of. >> reporter: before heading back to court, cosby's spokesman says the comedian is considering launching a tour to speak about the judicial system and the sex crime accusations levelled against him. while at least this juror says a retrial will be a waste of money. >> whatever the man did, he has already paid his price. >> reporter: according to cosby's spokesperson, there's no official schedule for the town hall yet but cities under consideration include birmingham, chicago, and detroit. with his trial potentially just month away, you have to wonder what his defense attorneys are going to think about that. >> all right, stephanie, thank you very much. >> thank you. a lot more to get to this morning, including a new warning about summer toy dangers parents need to hear this. also ahead, what's getting credit for reuniting julia roberts with her lost dog. plus jill's wrapping you have her week of steals and deals in a big way. $10 or

back now with today food. if you follow me on instagram, you notice i've been on a bit of a scallop kick lately and usually on the grill. those were scallops and greater number of witnesses -- grits i did. i'm going to pair it with a recipe that i stole from melissa clark of the "new york times" for a lemon mint potato salad. so, do you like to cook? >> i don't, man. not that i don't like it. i can't find the time for it. some people think it's relaxing. >> my daughter preps for me and i just have to cook it. scallops, if you can get great day scallops, there's nothing better on the grill. so you'll get them.
your fishmonger. and you just cut that off. and get rid of it. save it for a fish stock or something like that. and this is about as simple as it gets. basically, here's the clean version of it. you basically going to put a little olive oil on this. >> do they have to be dry before you dress them? >> yes. you want them to be as dry as possible. pat them down because you basically want the sizzle. you don't want that extra moisture because that actually causes them to steam more than grill. and then all you're going to do is just a little salt. a little pepper on both sides. and then you're going to put them on the grill. and the great thing about scallops is they cool about as quickly as you want. i mean, really, it's going to be about 2 minutes a side. maybe. depending on the side of the scallops. a lot of people say, oh, geez, but i don't know if they're done or not. well, maybe they're overcooked. all you have to do, take a toothpick, tina, one of our prep chefs told me this. i'm just going to put that on yor
>> one more time. still a little cold. >> so then you let -- >> that's how you do it. >> and once you know that it cooks on the other side. >> can you double dip the toothpick? >> that's why you have more than one. they're not that expensive. so, you -- you grill them up, you put them on -- the great thing about this, you think there's some sort of sauce. it's just lemon. that's what creates the grill marks. the sweet is literally in the scallop and it bring it out. do you like potato salad? >> yes. >> come on. i've got a great potato salad. >> i like eating all these things. just trying to work this out. >> small, yellow potatoes. i like the yukon cold. you're going to start with a pop of cold water, heavily salted. it should actually be as salty as the sea. so you're going to put that in there and let that -- yeah. >> the dead sea? >> the dead sea. you should -- the potatoes will float. no. you just put it in because it's not going to absorb all
much but it will flavor it just a little bit. you're going to put your potatoes in here and they basically are going to be covered by about an inch of water. turn this up. let it boil for about 15 to 20 minutes. you want them to basically be about fork tender so once they boil, you put them in, peel and all, you take them out, you're now going to -- as soon as they're cool enough for you to handle, but still warm, you're going to cut them in quarters or halves depending on the size. here's the beauty of this. >> can you put them before you boil them. >> you can, but i like to -- the recipe calls for them to be whole and i think it keeps them from getting mushy too quickly. so you're basically going to take some olive oil and the juice of one lemon. that's about two pounds of potatoes right there. and you're basically just going to whisk this. and you whisk, just keep whisking and you notice it emulsifies pretty quickly. literally all you have to do. now you can also add a little mo
pepper. i've actually added some cilantro to i had when i've done this and then take about a half a cup to a cup of shredded fresh mint. >> i would never think mint and potatoes go together. they compliment each other so much. >> drizzle this on top. and then just toss it. get your hands a little in there. get a little handsy with the potato salad. all right. and then that's it. and this is -- and the great part about it, there's no mayo so it's not going to go bad. you can take it to a picnic. in fact, it's actually a little better when it's a little warm. so you can dig in. >> my wife would be so happy if i did this. >> how great would that be if you did that. you can do that. >> and it's so quick. >> yeah, that doesn't look difficult. >> probably this recipe you can try. >> you're a big potato salad fan. >> i'm a big potato salad fan. this is a totally different spin on potato salad. it's fresh. you can actually taste the
like mayonnaise. >> see? >> i love seafood. >> try that this weekend. your family and friends will love it. >> the mint is great. >> and again, thank you to melissa clark, i stole that recipe from her. to get my recipes, and melissa's recipes, go to today.com/food. coming up, the story of a real life hero coming to the big screen. our natalie catches up with jake gyllenhaal with a behind the scenes sneak peek at his new movie, "stronger." coming up next.

he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
