7:05 am
outspoken trump critic mark cuban accepting an invite from the clinton campaign. trump responding saying he might invite gennifer flowers, the former arkansas state employee who had an affair with then rn >> you saw his reaction which i in the sewer and go for a swim. donald trump accusing the clinton campaign try from trying to distract from the issues. >> gennifer flowers will not be attending the debate tomorrow night. >> bace setting the scene, we want to show you the stage there. you can see the two podiums, they are mahing,ilry nald trump on the left. fact, his i a little bit taller than his to offset what is a ten inch height differential between the two. there are seats for 1,000 audience members in this room. for all of the critical things, these two candidates have had to say to each other over the course of the last 18 or so
7:06 am
face to face. aides on both sides tell me they believe the last time that these two had any real interaction in person was 11 years ago at trump's wedding to melania. >>hank you. as peter mentioned,rump has never debated one-on-one. clinton is a seasod debater. we began by asking if he is feeling confident. >> first of all, even seasoned debaters are not used to debating donald trump. this is a than what we've ever had before. i don't see this much as winni and, lo but more about how the candidates present to the american people on how they'll be president of the united states. we ask donald trump to stick with the facts, that he give clear plans, and does he have a command ofhe issues. this is how we think the candidates should be judged. what we don't want to have is a
7:07 am
award but hillary c youlinton know, is getting judged on the fine points of policy. >> both of these candidates have proven that they can land a punch and the polls are very clear, these are the two most unpopular candidates in presidential campaign history. so my question to you is, is hillary clinton thinking about tonight in terms of bringing trump down a notch or two again or do you feel like the work she needs to do is really about building herself up and addressing some of these deficits she has, for example, with trust >> i'm glad you asked the question. hillary recognizes she does need to earn the voters trust. it is a good opportunity to do that. we want this to be the issue and we want them to explain their plans to the american people. we saw at the convention when hillary had the opportunity to talk about not just the things she is going to do but her long history. it is part of a longer mission to help kids and families. she does really well. we're looking forward to that. that is why we don't want donald trump's lies and distortions to
7:08 am
checked so that hillary can focus her time on what she wants to do. >> what are her rules of engagement the? what have you laid out in the debate prep in terms of getting personal and getting negative? we know that mr. trump has been willing to go there over the last year or year and a half. what are her rules of engagement? >> again, it just depends on what donald trump shows up to the debate and we don't know that. and that is where hillary is going to have to make calls minute by minute. >> is she willing to throw the first said, is to prove to the american people she can make a real difference in their life, to talk about the things she wants to do as president. what i'm concerned about is donald trump has so far not presented real plans. he hasn't taken clear positions, and he has run a very negative campaign. so, and look, donald trump is an experienced reality show entertainer, so he may decide that this is a chance to show those chops. that is his choice but we want
7:09 am
possible to talk about how she will me a difference. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> our conversation a bit earlier. let's turn to his counterpart with the trump campaign. kellyanne conway with us this morning on a long day for everybody involved. >> it is a fun day. >> you heard what robbie mook had to say. they're concerned that trump will be graded on a cu. do you agree o do u think he is being underestimated tonight? >> robbie and i are living in pa universes. donald trump has been criticized all weekend long. i think that the clinton campaign has been gaining the wrath, talking to the media saying it is your job to make sure that are donald trump is fact checked and real time. i'm surprised the campaign manager would try to lower expectations that dramatically for his own candidate, but look, they know that campaign debates are not hillary clinton's sweet spot. yes, she is experienced at doing them but the experience hasn't necessarily been beneficial.
7:10 am
formally, can you name anything from a debate that you have seen in hillary clinton that really moved you or you remember and they can't. she has been in 34 of them. >> her strategy will depend on what donald trump will show up. is it the aggressor, the guy willing in the past to hurl insults or is it going to be the reserved donald trump, the reigned in that we've seen on occasion, not often but on occasion. >> donald trump is h he has been in business, quite successfully for many years, matt, and he will answer the question as they're asked. i mean, he has a right to defend himself. >> which do you think will work best in this debate tonight? >> i don't see there are two versions of donald trump. he won't be robotic and scripted which we know hillary clinton is and that is a problem in debates like this because people want to see a future commander-in-chief and president of the united
7:11 am
that haven't been preprogrammed in their head through all of this secretive debate prep and mock debates but somebody who can weigh the consequences and options and make a firm decision. that is why your own commander and chief, he got many more questions than secretary clinton got because her answers are so lengthy and lawyery. >> they have a lot of time tonight. they have plenty of time. >> trump obviously has shown and demonstrated a willingness to go there in terms ofl os past and saying maybe i'll invite gennifer flowers. >> why did he do that, savannah? ey inved mark cuban which isp they haveheir rightnvite whoever they wan but they tried to make it a controversial invite. sitting in the front row. >> okay, fine, they invite mark cuban, a rival. you're a pollster.
7:12 am
be persuasive to him. have you said not go there. >> i won't discuss private conversations bute wer putting the clinton campaign on notice that if they wanted to make this a debate, a conversation between two candidates being what would be president. giving their policies to those who respect and deserve. they say the economy, terrorism, healthcare, corruption, government, education, all very important to them and i disagree with my i disagree with him when i say donald trump hasn't put forth plans. he is talking about policies. in the last month, probably 15 different issues, he has been out there talking about the issues. she is running the negative ads about him right now where she can take that ad money, a quarter of a billion dollars, being spent by her campaign and her super pacs right now. she could take that and say here is my view on obama care. here is my view on ed kapgs. she is trashing him. >> as he is about to amp up his spending which we is about to
7:13 am
the ads will be positive policy ads. >> you'll see him interacting with folks and he puts forth what his policies are. the child care tax policy. >> they won't be negative ads. >> he will counter punch if he needs to but not to the extent that she has. hillary's entire campaign is anti-trump ads. they promised to be more up lifting, optimistic, we just haven't seen . the battle is tonight. >> thank you for having me. we'll have a lot more on what is ahead in a few moments. lester holt will be the moderator. it starts aft 9 eastern, 6 pacific. >> it will be a good night. let's go to mr. roker for a check of the weather. >> we've had floding in iowa. this is cedar rapids or cedar falls iowa and manchester. look at the flooding.
7:14 am
banks. the rain has stopped, thankfully, but the flooding has not. and so sand bagging operations are in full swing. and you can see, folks trying to stem the tide. right now, it is a losing battle. hopefully the weather can will cooperate. you can see clear skies right now in much of iowa. however, we have this cold front pushing through. that is going to be bringing more heavy rain stretching from the great lakes all theay country and moving into the northeast. the great lakes will stay wet around this upper level low and we may see another system develop along the coast in the midweek. we need the rain in the mid atlantic states and the northeast. upwards of four inches possible by friday. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. to be a great athlete or whatever but, you need to make sure you get your college degree.

7:16 am
popular athletes of all time has died. the golf legend, credited with revolutionizing the game he loved on his way to becoming an icon. >> a less than classic swing. a charming personality and hollywood good looks. together, they helped make arnold palmer golf's first super star. palmer burst through black and white tv set his colorful personality and stylpede helhange golfrom a game of elites to the one to the masses to fans, he was simply arnie and they were arnie's army. >> he made golf cool, mad it thtractive, made it exciting. were a perfect marriage. arnold palmer in television, ushering golf into the mainstream. >> palmer paved the way for today's golfers like tiger woods, who tweeted overnight, it
7:17 am
you or anyone more important to the game than the king. >> arnold palmer grew up in pennsylvania. in 1999, he tolde his dad a country club greens keeper turned pro taught him the game. >> i can see it right now. i can really see it and feel his hands, his hands were much the same as mine. big and fairly strong. when he put my hands on the club the first time, he looked at me just as i'm he said that is how you grip a golf club. just keep them there. >> that grip brought palmer 62 pga titles including seven majors. in 1960, his come from behind victory at the u.s. open, over 200 legends jack nicklaus is considered one of the greatest moments in history. his long time friend jack nicklaus saying arnold was
7:18 am
sport. he took it to another level virtually by him self. palmer also transcended golf, winning the presidential medal of freedom in 2004, comparing golf grips with then president george w. bush. palmer became just as well known for his pursuits off the course. he popularized a drink known as the arnold palmer, half tea, lt?lilemona, and hreated a empire, designing and building golf courses around the world. iconic status going far beyond the ga. >> he had it factornd it was com bustable. he was a star. >> overnight, president obama tweeted here's to the king, who was as extraordinary on the links as he w generous to others. thanks for the memories, arnold. >> thank god for the game of golf and what it has meant to me.
7:19 am
nbc sports. good morning to you. >> hey matt, hey savannah. >> jones, hogan, sneed, a lot of other great golfers. he had impact like none other. why? >> i think your obit said it all and i was just about to cite the same three guys. jones, hogan and sneed who proceeded him. he was the first golf super star of the television era and he had referred to him in the piece that almost burst through the television screen and to aot of people, golf was kind of an eliteountry club sport where arnie was a man of the peop. arnie's army was just regular people and you could see those mannerisms, hitching up the pants a goingor the broke.
7:20 am
shot. other times he would charge from behind and whether he won or lost, the army was always with him. he won seven majors as you mentioned, he might have won ten or 11. he lost the u.s. open three times in playoffs. he won four masters but lost another one on the last hole when he double bogeyed it and lost by a single stroke. that only endeared him to the people who followed him. he was that kind of guy just went for it. >> you quote the stats impressive, i might add. it seems like his legacy is what he did for the game itself in terms of, as you mentioned, broadening the appeal and bringing it to the masses. >> no question about it. statistics can not capture the essence of what some athletes are about and arnold palmer falls into that category. it is the impact that he had and the time where he came along, a
7:21 am
was emerging and golf on television was becoming popular, he was, the nickname was true, he was t king. jik nicholas over took him by every measure but his impact on golf w i knew him but not well because i didn't cover that much golf but every time i encountered him, not surprisingly, he was gentlemanly and gracious, but i heard this story so many times, matt, from spo grew up to be famous or others who maybe not so much, but i heard the same story independently over and over. i was a young sports writer, somebody would say, for the east hobokin gazette and i was the last person waiting in the locker room to interview him, waiting for hours and hours and he was patient with me, he remembered my name, the next time he saw me, he remembered my name. he had time for the biggest and

7:32 am
here are the three things you want to watch for for tonight. first, for donald trump, can he persuade voters he has the temperament to be commander-in-chief? that is one of his biggest negatives with the american people, so if he can prove that he can look presidential behind that podium, it could help him. as for hillary clinton, given that she struggled when it comes to trust worthiness, can she show she is honest and likeable and third, if hillary clinton can get under trump's skin, how will the react? this is a major or break night that could rival some of of the biggest debate moments in politics. remember richard nixon, sweaty in 19960 and in 1988 there was the lloyd benson slam against dan quale. you're no jack kennedy and al gore's heavy sighing earned heavy criticism against former president george w. bush. through it all, a major night. tonight will be trump's 12th
7:33 am
it will be clinton's 39th but neher has experienced anything like this, an estimated 100 million people tuning in. two podiums. one night for the history books. savannah? >> hallie jackson at the de site. nicolle wallace is here with her take. >> good morning, guys. >> i don't remember a build up for a debate like this but we haven't seen a campaign like this ever. before we get to what each and to do to come away with a win. what are the stakes on this one debate. >> e morning after morning talking about the roller coaster ride that the whole country has been on this year. i mean, this is, like, the one where they start at the top and drop and leave the stomach up there. this is really sort of going to bring this race down to earth. it will crystallize in a lot of people's minds. we talk about the choice but no one has ever seen the choice. this will be the two of them on the same stage being asked by people in the same moment. >> it seems like people are anticipating this epic showdown
7:34 am
this big fight. for both of the candidates, neither comes in with a halo over his or her head. they have work to do in terms of making an affirmative case for themselves. do you think we'll see that tonight? >> listen, i think there is so much talk about the knock out punch and who is -- these are punchers, these are fighters, they prevailed in the primaries because ey ultimately knocked out the opponent. no one questions their ability to deliver a slug above or donald trump's case. what they need to do is work on their own problems for him, r that is the question of presidential nature, presidential temperament. needs to ow i think some remorse about some of the more outrageous statements and insults. for her, it is not that she needs to show that she can be trusted. i don't know how you do that mi. she needs to show that she can address her own questions about whether or not she is -- [ inaudible ]
7:35 am
revealing. break down the notion that she is secretive. >> you worked on campaigns in the past, worked on debate prep. how nerve wracking is this morning? this kind of a morning? >> people talk about election day being the day that you can't look at food, this is the single worst kind of day. you have zero control. you know, you've done all of your preparations, you've gained about every scenario. senato senator obama at hofstra. i spent the day going from avoiding reporter's calls, no offense to feeling like we did everything we could. it really is, it draws the sort of numbers it draws because anything can happen. >> it will be the longest 14 hours in history between now and then. thank you. you can watchhe debate on nbc tonight.

everyone loves a great story. whether it's classics we grew up with, or the ones handed down through history. but what about the comeback stories. where what's new meets what's next, and why meets why not. let's dive into the latest chapter of detroit. and the unmistakable vibe of pure michigan. we're back. time for "today" food. this week it is all about discount dinners. not the way i would describe alton brown. >> wait a second. i'm cheap. i'm easy and delicious. i think it's okay. >> we mean that in the best possible way.
8:39 am
"every day cook." tell me about the book. >> the book is a culinary self portrait. it is the every day food that i cook every day -- if you were to come to my house and have breakfast, lunch and dinner this is what you would be having. >> we're doing a chicken pick cat at that recipe. >> it's a well-known dish, it is pounded out chicken or veal with a -- finished with a sauce with lemon juice and capers but i make mine cheaper and i use chicken thighs instead. they are the perfect thing for this dish because actually they provide a lot more flavor and they stand up to pounding a lot more than chicken breast. nobody actually likes chicken breast, that's my theory. >> we do it because we think it's leaner, that's why we pick chicken breast. >> the difference between the breast and thigh is actually not that much and in the end once the dish is put together there is a lot more satisfaction here, but the big thing is in order to build the sauce properly you
8:40 am
a freezer bag and pound it. this is a part of what picata is about. that's go to tend rise the chicken, give more surface area for browning and embed it with flour which is going to build the sauce. >> is that a boneless thigh? >> i bone mine myself. when it comes time to do the cooking a little oil in a very hot pan and a little oil will keep the butter from burning, that's not really true, it's more about flavor and about not having as much of the milk solids from the butter. to brown this kind of thing you really want to keep the pan constantly moving. i usually do this in bunches, three pieces at a time, you keep it moving over high heat. americans are afraid of cooking with high heat but it develops a lot of flavor. after 90 seconds you flip them and they end up looking like this.
8:41 am
going to magically cover that up and pretend that it never happened. what we end up with is the ground thighs, take those out, same pan, add eight ounces of mushrooms, three tablespoons of capers. >> i love capers. >> pickled flower bud from a mediterranean plant. once those are browns the chicken goes back in. >> can i show our tasters down stairs. wee >> hoda asked for ketchup. >> that's fine if you buy the book. >> i don't want ketchup for this. the lemon is perfect. >> this is important, this is a braised dish which is like a stew, we need to tender rise and build a sauce. i have chicken broth with white wine. that is going to work with the flour that was already on the chicken to make a sauce, about seven minutes later this is what we've got. >> it's beautiful.
8:42 am
creamy looking sauce. >> you can finish that with butter if you wanted to but i don't. number one, i think that this is enough sauce. to me sauce that's on the plate at the end of the day is not worth anything. i like it to be right on top of the meat and clinging to it. >> i love it. >> this is what we end up with, that can be served on rice or pasta or nothing at all to be really honest. hit it with a little parsley and that looks like a dinner party for 4 bucks. >> it really does. alton brown, thank you so much. >> you should eat some. use the big fork. >> and i will mention all the reese piece are on today.com. i have to get some shrooms in there. >> mushrooms are really cheap and add a meaty flavor so i can actually cut back on the chicken, add more mushrooms and you get that umami that savory flavor. you are pregnant, you will eat anything. >> that's not true. >> they told me you were like
8:43 am
