afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain do not take xarelto if you have. an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto

7:41 am
file this under "maybe." first, congressmen need to take action. while republicans could have trouble getting the 60 votes to get it to the president's desk, a vote to repeal did make it to president obama earlier thi year under a special budget procedure that required only a simple majority. he, of course, vetoed the repeal. if it makes it to a president trump, tesult would likely be a different story. also on his agenda -- reshaping the supreme court. >> the supreme court, >> reporter: file this under "highly likely." with republicans controlling congress, trump's all but assured a more conservative supreme court pick. >> the american people have spoken and president trump will send us a nominee, i assume, early next year. >> reporter: trump's relsed his list of picks to fill the seat lt vacant after the death of justice antonin scalia. among the notable names -- senar mike lee of utah who did not vote for the party's

7:43 am
paul rn after their trip to the white house this morning. >> hallie jackson at the white house thisorningthank you. >>t's>lering in nolle wallace a steve kornacki who at this poin nt need introduction. nicolle, you've been there. what are these meetings about? the white house is this scene, this is the peaceful transfer of power. there isons of symbolism. but it is alsoy personal. >> it is very personal. and there is a lot of talk about when you turn the page, a hard-fought campaign is over. governor christie has talked about, trump's election, president obama was one of the most powerful spokesmen in makg the case against trump's candidacy. so everyone is committed to turning the page because the business govning is so much more grave than the business of campaigning. but these are human beings. they're not robots. >> what nicolle is saying, is you can't unring a bell. some of thehings that have been said during the course of this campaign a going to stick around. >> it's interesting, what's
7:44 am
called has been so strikingly different than the election itself. i think that probably is encouraging to everybody becse we thought such an unprecedented campaign may be the aftermath would be unprecedented. so far it is going the way iis supposed to go. i think things are going to get interesting when you look at how democrats react. obviously democrats do not like donald trump. at the same time, this is a guy who's taken some positions on issues where he actually could find some democratic help on capitol hill. >> that's interesting. it is a good segue to my question for nicolle. how is he remaking the republican party, not just in tone, but also the orthodoxy of the republican party and the policy. so how do you think that all plays out in terms of what he tries to do in 100 days? for example, trade agreements. >> he owes the republican party nothing. he won without the republican establishment behind him. and, frankly, with sort of the republican folks that make their way on to tv shows -- >> but guess who's waiting for
7:45 am
the republican establishment. >> he really has an opportunity ft an agenda and pick his partners. if trade is a place where he finds more enthusiastic support among democrats, he has an opportunity to work with democrats. court justices.st of supreme there will be issues whether there are natural alliances with the conservative movement in and out of the government. but he is in such a unique position in that he owes this victory to no one other than his small sort of pirate ship campaign and his base of support around the country. >> if these protests continue to build,uld donald trump say nothing and let the emotion play itself out or should he speak again to the arican people? >> i think at some poit is not directly addressing the protests that's his responsibility. but i think theessage that he delivered after this election tonally is the message you want the winner in the election to deliver. he was gracious about his opponent. he talked about uniting the country. as long as he continues to deliver a message like that, i think that's what we expect of a
7:46 am
yestery and i took my money out of my pocket. look what i found? i found a little piece of paper with the predictions from election eve of when this was going to be called. >> you know what's going about him? he never says "i told you so." >> chuck is not here to defend himself. steve predicted 11:20 at night. >> that was pacific time. >> i forget what i said. >> 1:00 a.m. >> i was closer. >> but if i had askedyou, and who is going to win? i would not have predicted this outcome. but it is -- you know, i think there is a lot of hand-wringing. i dropped my son off at school yesterday morning. a lot of moms came up to me figuring out how to talk to their kids. i think it is just important to member that we've sort of been through extraordinary events bere. i am a recount survivor. i am a mccain-palin survivor.

going. in their first show since the election late last night, the host of the shows we love watching had a mix of sincerity and their own special brand of humor. >> if your child asks the ultimate question -- why do bad things happen to good people -- you finally have the answer. the electoral college. >> of course, this means that early next year trump will be moving into the white house. he will become the first president who moves in and hangs up his own portrait. >>wo thingsap donald trump got elected president, and my job just got easier for the next four yes. >> based on this pattern of me being wrong on everyone of my donaldrump predictions, he's probably going to be a great [ bleep ] president. >> so there was another moment in particular that caught our attention when seth meyers got emotional addressing the person who's out there who could still be our nation's first female president. >> the fact is, we don't know who you are but i imagine this

8:14 am
celebrate the first female president. >> what was the day like today? >> if i had to sum it up well it would be going through the five stages of grief. >> the big take away from this election for me is also how divided our country is. >> although our country is in a divided state at the moment we can still find ways to look past this and to still encourage each other. >> reporter: for the students it's a lesson in politics witnessing a combative campaign but then at the end gracious speeches fm >> i think the message has been very much you're worthwhile, you are important, your voice matters. and one day you will get to run for president of the united states. >> reporter: to lift their spirits the girls created a video which they'll send to hillary clinton. >> we are stronger together! stronger than ever! thank you, secretary clinton. >> reporter: it's hard to know how most americans will choose to move forward. in new york hundreds of post-its
8:15 am
seth meyers tried to offer something positive. >> in general, i am hopeful for president trump because hope is always the best possible path to take. >> reporter: a country torn apart, hoping there's enough thread to eventually sew things back together. for today, joe fryer, nbc news, los angeles. >> dr. jennifer hartseen is an adolescent and child psychologist. it's one thing a lot of parents have said, not just after election day and the result but l do i talk to my kids about this? and for kids, you know, world events loom so large when they're focused in on them. do you have any tips on how to talk about it, whether you're happy with the result or not? >> right, i think that's the thing. you can be happy, you can be sad, our kids are absorbing all of this. the first thing is keeping it simple. your younger children do not need to know the same information as your older children and keep it on point and direct. you want to really -- don't put
8:16 am
because a lot of these kids absorb everything around them and then they're just repeating it but they don't always understand it. validate their feelings. really let them know that you understand. and then everybody needs to start to work towards a place of acceptance and kind of awareness and then decide what they want to do about it. be it a good thing or bad thing for you. kind of move towards the acceptance. >> i think one of the hard things as parents and i've got three children, so we spend a lot of time in my house talking about compromise. and when they hear what's going on in this election or there doesn't seem to be a lot of area of compromise. it seems to be one end or the other. split down the middle. >> right. you know, sometimes -- and i think obama said it great with all of his sports references in his speech yesterday, there's a winner and a loser and that's not compromise. and this is one of those moment where there is a winner and unfortunately there's a loser and everybody can choose which side they're on. we have to accept that that's what is and work in that spectrum. >> a lot of focus are on those
8:17 am
also there's a lesson if you were a supporter of president-elect trump because it also shows how to be gracious in victory. >> absolutely. this is a really wonderful lesson in sportsman like conduct. how do we say this is great and i'm so excited but respect that someone else loss and honor that for them. >> you have to remember, kids are sponges. if you don't think they heard everything, they heard everything. >> they did. they did. we've got to respect that and hear what they have to say. >> what about specific fears? you know, there are some kids who might have been example, about immigration or deportation or they hear about terrorism, they hear about racism. you know, there's just all kinds of accusations that have flown back and forth. and if you've got older kids, how do you address these issues? >> sure. i've seen it in my practice. yesterday there were a lot of teens afraid of what's going to happen to me and my friends. i think it's really being able to sit with them, talk about it, remind them that you're going to work really hard to protect them, remind them the government is not just one person.
8:18 am
positive and a great place. and that's what we're going the all hope for. >> keep it in perspective. good lessons for everybody, all ages. thank you. let's go over to al and get a check of the weather. >> how about the weekend? take a deep breath and reset and just kind of enjoy. here's your weather for it. cooler weather through the great lakes. sunshine through the gulf coast. unseasonably mild through the plains. from northern california into the pacific northwest. look for wet weather. looking ahead towards saturday. got a cooldown in the northeast new england. great lakes looking gorgeous. sunshine. unseasonably warm. beautiful weather in the southwest into southern california. sunday, sunday, a big football day. we've got lots of sunshine in the northeast. some showers along the mid atlantic coast. heavy rain moves into the pacific northwest and the sunny skies continue again down through the southwest and into
8:19 am
>> and that is your latest weather. all right, mr. roker. thank you very much. fresh off covering another historic election, tom perspective. we should mention, he's also celebrating a milestone. 50 years here at nbc. and tom plans to donate all his papers and memorabilia to the library at the university of iowa. that is a cool thing, tom. good morning. nice to see you. >> especially gen t fact that i spent one year there and i had a double major. beer and coeds. [ laughter ]. >> but we digress. >> but they didn't let go of me
8:20 am
>> i'll get to that in a second but i want to talk to you about what's happening at the white house today. we've just been through a lot as a nation with this election. yet i think, shouldn't we all take comfort in what's going to happen at the white house today? >> it is part of the majesty of the american system is that a loser, and in fact barack obama is a loser because his candidate didn't win. he's going out of office but he is welcoming in a gracious way the unexpected winner, donald trump, who has an agenda completely different than they can have a transition that is peaceful and we hope it will be very efficient for the country. >> you were watching, i know, the speech that hillary clinton gave yesterday. in addition to watching her and listening to what she was saying, i was looking at that room and it looked like a political wake. and in some ways it just showed the disappointment of about half the people in this country, particularly when it comes to the attempt to elect a woman as president of the united states. >> well, actually i think in the
8:21 am
not as important as other issues. the country was saying, we want big change. and they didn't see her as an agent of change. we want washington to get it. we're not happy with what's going on out here. i know a lot of those people are stuck, the working class in the middle part of america. but yet when i saw those young people weeping and i thought to myself, i hope they stay on the hunt. i hope that they say that political and public service is very importanto me. we went through this a lot in 19 w hubert humphrey and a lot of people were giving up on the system. but you've got to stay in it if you're going to change it. donald trump stayed the course and ran a campaign that no one thought could be successful but he saw his way through it. >> after 50 years in the business you can still be surprised, can't you? >> i can be surprised every time. people were tired of hearing me saying this but my mantra during the campaign is the ufo theory,
8:22 am
and it occurred and it occurred by a magnitude of 10,000. >> let's get to this great honor, you're dgonatin your memorabilia and papers to the university of iowa. why? >> it wa tsir idea. they came to me. i was reluctant. do i have enough important stuff. they were persistent. they've got a wonderful world class y.librar all digitalized. the library of congress, connected. i started going through my material. and my god, i was it was. >> can we talk about somef the things and actually as i walked over to say hi to you this morning i walked right past this picture here which is you and nancy reagan. do you know what year that was? >> it was -- it was about three years into their- so about 1980 -- 1981 or '82. we had had a spat. i had said some things about the president that she reallyidn't like. i had known them from california days covering them.
8:23 am
nancy, you don't want to get around her for three months. then they called me and said you're going to be invited to a state dinner, you have to think about what you're going to say to her in the receiving line. don't worry about the president. all of the way up to her, he was saying, which you figured it out. i got to her and she looked at me with that steely look and i said to her, nancy, back to square one. at that moment the picture was taken and she said, back to square one. that photograph arrived the next difficult. this is how good with the inscription, "tom, back to square one." and we went on from there. >> talk about what's on the table here. i'm a huge baseball fan. that is an incredible item. >> when the giants were playing the as in the world seriese went a crew out toimaggio. we found him in his barber shop. he said this is for tom brokaw. i had never met him at that point. we said, do you think he would like a baseball from me? >> is this a trick question?
8:24 am
from joe dimaggio. there are not very many of those around. >> 1989, tom, you were there as the berlin wall came down. and you've got mementos of that as well. >> well, the highlight of my career in so many ways. and as they started to knock off pieces of the berlin wall, ed lee, a computer experts, bring them to me. so i brought back a bunch of them and we will see some of them here and encase them as you can see and handed them out to my friends and every time i look at them i think about the symbolic of the end of the communism. >> this here is from the myrrh are federal building in oklahoma city. >> john hanson, assistant fire commission, the spokesman there, brought that to me because i lived in oklahoma city for so many days. and as a product of the great plains i identified with what they were going through and wrote an essay about it. this is a notebook that i was interviewing bill gates, i got his name circled there, at a time, it was the beginning of the age that we're now moving
8:25 am
with him including an hour documentary. >> do you remember when you stopped using notebooks? >> you know, i still use them. i did even on election night. i wrote down things i wanted to make sure i ha. i trusted the digital piece of but at the same time there's something that connects me to the ideas that up writing about. >> great, by the way, great picture of you and nelson mandela. 50 years at nbc. i have been a fan for all of them. >> well, we've had friendships as well. that's the other part the payoff for me is not what i got to do. it's all the people who helped me through it, quite honestly, matt. you and i have the privilege of being out in front of the camera. we couldn't do it with all of ese folks that are here supporting us every day. >> yeah. >> and i'm going to make an effort for all of them to get compensated as well as you do. [ applause ] >> you're not doing so bad yourself, mr. brokaw.

8:31 am
>> oh, the tree! yeah, the tree! >> that's right. they're out in upstate new york right now cutting it down. we'll tell you the heartwarming story behind this year's rockefeller center tree. >> we always get a little bonded to the tree. it is our friend. also, we are getting ready for thanksgiving. we've bee doing side dishes all week. i am very excited because potatoes are here. finally. today is potato day. the two michaels sharing some awesome recipes. then peter burg on norring our nation's hero. and i sat down with legendary carl reiner. >> you've got the forecast. you bet. right now we are looking at a gorgeous day in the east. little on the chilly side. gusty winds around the great lakes. near record temperatures in the plains. looking ahead toward friday, we
8:32 am
into the plain states. pacific northwest, little on the wet side, windy and cooler as that front moves into the northeast. gorgeous weather along the gulf coast into the southeastern >> don't forget, get that weather any time you need it. go to the weather channel on cable. >> mr. roker, thank you very much. director peter burg has brought some harrowing stories
8:33 am
"lone survivor" and "deepwater horizon." you can catch his latest project on the small screen just in time for veterans day. new history channel series called "the war fighters." peter, great to see you. talk to me about the idea behind this. because this is different from what you've done. >> well, i have done shows in the military space and i am a big fan and a supporter of our military. this show gave us an opportunity to go very deep in to the personal lives and into the women of our special operations. >> i think we've all seen a story unfold, a true story, and we've all thought, what was behind that? you know, where did these people come from? where do they go after this happened to them? i love the fact as we are looking on the screen right now, we're hearing from the actual people. >> i'm very proud of the fact that 90 veterans actually worked on the show. they were part of making the
8:34 am
you get these men who generally are the most tight-lipped, private guys you will ever meet in your life, telling really intimate stories about their love for each other and how they operated. >> it is so real because often times when hollywood does these stories -- i don't mean to paint with a broad brush -- you get only the bravado side of things. here you get the fact of what they felt like when they were going through it and what it was like after the trauma. >> absolutely. this episode youre is about a young soldier named mark guzzo who tragically committed suicide after he got out of serving in the s.e.a.l.s. he was an extraordinary man. you go et to hear interviews with his brothers from the military community, but also his parents who both served in the military for a combined 60 years. it's gut-wrenching and really takes you deeply into an issue which today, right after what we've experienced in the last
8:35 am
important that we really can pay our respects and learn a little bit more -- a lot more about these extraordinary men. >> i'm so glad you brought that up because the timing is important because verans day obviously. but after an election like this that divides the nation in half, everyone can agree on the support for these kindsf people. >> certainly the one thing that clinton and trump both agreed on was that we need to do more for our veterans. i think that to do more we've got to who these men are, what they go through, what their lives are like when they get out. if people really do care -- everybody likes to say "thank you for your service" and "i respect you so much." i feel like if we really care, it is our responsibility to get to know these men a little more deeply so we can understand that. >> talking about the small screen here. can we go back to the big screen for a second? >> do whatever you want, matt.
8:36 am
-- film coming up. >> it starts right before the boston marathon bombing and ends right after the second bomber was caught. it is really a look at how this extraordinary commuty came together in the face of what is cominghis new horrific reality that we live . it's also -- if i may say without getting in trouble, a positive look at law enforcement and a show that really reminds us why cops can be so -- great, incredible people. it shows the very best of this community responding to a really horrific experience. >> the emotions are still so raw on that subject, especially up in boston. does that put extra pressure o you when you make a movie like that? >> i mean it -- i wase something i should go do a love story in france and i end up making movies like "patriots's day" or "lone survivor." but to be welcomed into that community and mt the police and private citizens and the fbi
8:37 am
that responded, much like we saw here 9/11 and we've seen many places since then. but to see how honorable and patriotic and just what great men and women responded to boston like responded to tampa or san bernardino. it was an honor. so the pressure was a bit more intense than maybe doing a super hero film, but it was a privilege to tell that story. >> you and mark wahlberg are peter, always good to see you. what a pleasure. thank you very much. you can catch the veterans day marathon of "the war fighters" starting tomorrow night on the history channel. up next, al's going to sit down with a living legend -- carl reiner. but first, this is "today"

8:43 am
>> that's worth it. >> there is so much amazing in that piece. but i think in doing the yoga pose on the bed. >> at 94! >> he's very flexible and limber. >> that's the secret to good comedy. >> i don't know what might happen. >> that's cool. up next, michael white, michael kitchen, how to make potatoes the real star of your
