"people" magazine set to crown its" sexist man alive" "today," tuesday, november 15th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news this is "today." with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from rockefeller plaza in studio 1a. >> good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a rainy tuesday. don't worry, there is always next we are for sexiest man alive. >> no, no, i'll keep my fingers crossed. >> i watched the four topics you just talked about in the open
because you left out one of my favorites today. >> i know. rolling stones. >> the rolling stones, or as i like to call them, mick, keith, charlie and ronnie, take us on a exhibition that covers their 50 years of music. >> speaking of tour. this is the first day of al's "today's turkey trot." he will go all around the country and surprise folks with different themes. we don't even know where al is right now. >> i have no idea. >> stones, turkey trot. stones, turkey trot. we will start with politics. some controversy surrounding president-elect donald trump. does he want security clearances for his own children and son-in-law? our political team has that covered and we're going to talk about all of this with trump's former campaign manager kellyanne conway in a moment. but first, nbc national correspondent peter alexander is at the white house. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, savannah, matt, good morning. nbc news has confirmed that the trump team had inquired whether it would be possible and legal for president-elect trump's adult kids to have security clearances during the
but no formal request was made. it would have been unprecedented. would be unprecedented for those clearances to be extended to the president's children. late monday though a trump transition official said that no request was made and said that one is not likely to be coming. this all comes just hours after president obama called on americans to unite behind his successor urging them to give him a chance. president obama this morning touching down in greece leaving in his wake a trail of take-aways about the president-elect. >> campaigning is different from governing. i think he recognizes that. >> reporter: the president refusing to criticize his successor but warning of unique obstacles ahead. >> this office has a way of waking you up and those aspects of his positions or predispositions that don't match up with reality, he will find shaken up pretty quick.
>> i don't think he is ideological. i think ultimately he is pragmatic in that way. >> reporter: with trump's team now revving up its efforts to fill his cabinet, there is growing backlash over one of his first presidential picks, chief strategist steve bannon. house minority leader nancy pelosi slamming the former executive of the ultra conservative breitbart news branding him a "white nationalist." most republicans staying silent. but conservative commentator glenn beck calls him terrifying. >> steve bannon wants to burn it down. he's a nightmare and he's the of the united states now. >> reporter: still, trump's team is defending the choice highlighting bannon's degrees from georgetown and harvard. >> i find him to be a very, very decent, very good, extremely smart man. >> reporter: new this morning, a member of trump's transition team tells nbc news both rudy giuliani and john bolton, former ambassador to the u.n., will definitely have top jobs. >> well, first all, i won't be attorney general. >> reporter: with giuliani signaling he's interested in
also on deck, press secretary. among the top contenders is conservative talk show host. laura ingraham. >> i'm honored to be considered for that job and other jobs. we'll see what happens. >> reporter: deliberations are heating up. today the list of names likely whittled down with president-elect trump and vice president-elect pence set to meet today at trump tower they will review candidates for certain appointments. matt and savannah. >> peter alexander at the white house, thank you. kellyanne conway served as donald trump's campaign manager. kellyanne, nice to see you. good morning. >> hi, matt, hi, savannah. >> we've been talking about how many questions we have for you so let's see how many we can get through. we'll test your poker face on some of this. we have reporting now that somewhere in the transition team someone has reached out to inquire about possible security clearances for donald trump's adult children and his son-in-law. is it true and why would it be necessary? >> i am not intimately aware of that particular line of questioning, matt.
which is that the inquiries were made very informally and that's all i know. >> but if his adult children are going to carry on running the family business, why would they even need a security clearance? >> well, we are filled with questions in the trump transition and that's just very logical. i know everybody's very concerned about security. which is a slightly separate matter. but at the same time, i'm sure that the trump children will be there to support their father in informal capacities anth these are just regular inquiries among many that are made when folks are transitioning into a new administration for the trump family, a new city. >> i don't know if you heard the president's news conference yesterday but it seemed like he was trying to send a message, give mr. trump a chance to do this job. >> yes. >> he also said his own impression of mr. trump was that he was not really ideological but more pragmatic and practical and that that might serve him well. do you agree with that assessment? did the president have it right? >> i agree with president
completely, and i am very thrilled that the president would tell the country that because it is an important voice to have out there right now, savannah, as we try to have a peaceful transition and form a new government. i was very classy of president obama and i think incredibly perceptive. those who spend a little bit of time beyond the caricatures, beyond the ridicule and get to know donald trump and listen to his message will come to a similar conclusion. it is very important to us that the sitting president would see we have the same thing with vice president-elect pence. they ran because they love the country and put their ideas out there. we got an overwhelming response from the electorate. >> poker face time. rudy giuliani. is he going to be secretary of state? >> he could be. he certainly is a very close advisor of president-elect trump's. i spoke at that same ceo council for the "wall street journal" last night where he just showed rudy on camera. the mayor has enormous skill set.
the cabinet and that's where i'll leave it. >> let's talk about steve bannon. as you know -- we talked about this with reince priebus yesterday. there is some controversy surrounding him. you heard glenn beck has called him terrifying and a nightmare. obviously democrats aren't thrilled, they say he is a white nationalist. but beyond that, here is my question. i know you guys have said this is his resume, this is his experience. he is, however, something of an unknown quantity. i mean there aren't a lot of interviews. he hasn't spoken very much. have you given any thought to having him speak or do an interview in a way to just reassure people that this person who has the president's ear isn't as scary as being portrayed? >> i promise you, he's not as scary and he is as brilliant a tactician and our campaign general, frankly, on the field as everyone is also saying, savannah. i know him well. i work hand in glove with him. i feel that these charges are very unfair. in terms of him being a public face of the campaign, that's a decision that we've made strategically.
time. i would love to share the stage with him and others. believe me. but at the same time, you have to realize, i get a lot of credit for managing this campaign and that's nice, but we were a very solid team focused, cohesive, and, frankly, very much in agreement with the strategy. he was a big part of that. and so you see the fruits of his labor. over 300 electoral votes. 69 of the 99 state legislative chambers, majority of the governorships, majority of the house and senate that's so republican. this man believes in president-elect trump's vision and is he there to support his vision. not everybody wants to be public face. not everybody is asked to do that on behalf of the president-elect. >> kellyanne, we just introduced you as donald trump's former campaign manager. if you're joining us on this show two weeks from now, how will we introduce you? >> kellyanne conway, who's very happy that president-elect trump was elevated to this position. >> about to take the new
>> oh, well, to be determined. and president-elect trump has been incredibly generous in discussing that with me. i could tell you, matt and savannah -- i'm sure a lot of your viewers can relate -- i didn't see mom of four young children in any of the job descriptions. i am trying to navigate my best and highest use professional, along with the personal demands on my time and my life. >> fair enough. kellyanne conway, thanks for your time this morning. >> thank you for having me. let's turn back to what the president had s news conference. he kicked off his final foreign tour as well today starting his day in greece. nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker has more. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. as president obama's final foreign trip gets under way, he and hillary clinton are urging democrats to keep fighting, even as they find themselves in their weakest position in eight years. there is also acknowledgement there may have been some mistakes and missteps that allowed donald trump to win the
conference, president obama urging democrats not to give up, even in the face of their devastating defeat. >> i think the democrats should not waver on our core beliefs and principles. >> reporter: he weighed in on what went wrong. offering some not so cynical criticism of hillary clinton. >> i won iowa not because the demographics dictated that i would win iowa. it was because i spent 87 days going to every small town and fair and fish fry and vfw hall. >> reporter: some democrats believe hillary clinton didn't spend enough time reaching out to white working class voters in places like iowa and ohio. voters who ultimately swept donald trump into the white house. >> i believe that we had better ideas, but i also believe that
>> reporter: in a call with the democratic national committee, the president acknowledged the loss was extra tough because it was unexpected and said he's told his white house team "you're allowed to mope for a week and a half. maybe two, if you really need it. but after that, we got to brush ourselves off and get back to work." and in two separate calls to house and senate democrats, clinton acknowledged she's still heartbroken but said "we can't be distracted or diverted in the fights ahead." who will lead the party now? a fight is under way fhe next chair of the dnc. former vermont governor howard dean who once held the position is in the race. and on monday, minnesota congressman keith ellison, a progressive, threw his hat into the ring. >> my vision is to focus our attention on strengthening the grassroots, put our priority on voter turnout. >> reporter: for the president whose time in office is about to end, the focus is on the future. >> as i've told my staff, we should be very proud that their
car's in pretty good shape. >> reporter: president obama also told the dnc he's still fired up and ready to go. as for hillary clinton, she will attend her first public event since the election right here in washington, d.c. tomorrow when she accepts an award from the children's defense fund which is where she used to work. matt? savannah? >> kristen welker in washington, thank you. now to this alarming story we mentioned at the top of the show. isis calling next week's thanksgiving day parade here in new york city an excellent target. >> the terror group's message appeared in the latest edition of a propaganda magazine and featured a photo of the iconic parade. city officials say there is no specific threat. john miller, the nypd's deputy commissioner intelligence and counterterrorism, looking to re-assure potential spectators. >> we do get calls. we run those leads down.
>> miller says the department has had measures in place for several years now to stop potential attacks on the parade. also this morning, we are mourning the loss of one of our own. award winning journalist gwen ifill. she died on monday at the age of 61 after a battle with cancer. gwen was one of the most respected people in our industry, breaking gender and racial barriers. during her career, we're proud to say she was a part of our nbc family. nbc's harry smith remembers her legacy. >> our lead tonight is news that we hoped we would if he ever we hoped we would never have to report. our managing editor, my co-anchor, and dear friend, gwen ifill, died earlier today after an almost year-long battle with cancer. >> reporter: her career was forged at newspapers like "the washington post" and "new york times." it was clear from all who watched her that gwen ifill was destined to occupy an important place in american journalism. >> nbc political correspondent
>> reporter: she was a reporter's reporter. >> democrats are scared. they've been scared for a long time but this is their worst nightmare. >> reporter: we saw it first hand at the "today" show when gwen worked at nbc. >> but senators don't really want any more witnesses. all they want is a way to end this trial sooner than later. >> reporter: her friend and nbc news colleague, pete williams, struggled yesterday as he spoke about her. >> gwen was a dear friend, a former nbc colleague. gwen would want me to get this together. >> reporter: co-anchoring the news hour on pbs with judy woodruff, hosting "washington week." >> we welcome governor palin and senator biden. >> reporter: the moderator of important political debates. gwen ifill shattered racial and gender ceilings and on camera was never anything but unflappable, fair, and, oh, so
citizens but she also inspired tomorrow's journalists. she was an especially powerful role model for young women and girls who admired her integrity, her tenacity and her intellect. >> reporter: for "today," harry smith, nbc news, new york. >> when i first heard this yesterday, a word that came to mind initially, in addition to a great journalist, an amazing journalist, she was a lovely person. she was lovely. >> when you see some of the tributes going around. she was so gracious and so quick to offer friendship. she was a mentor to so many. whether you knew her or you didn't, she was rooting for you. i think that's why so many people are just heartbroken. she was one of a kind. we will miss her. >> our condolences go out to gwen's family and friends. let's bring in mr. roker. >> he's on the road this morning. al, good morning. where in the world is al roker? >> i'll tell you, we're in maryland. i'll also tell you that the thing i remember about gwen was
it lit up a room and you were enveloped in her warmth. we will miss her. but we are in maryland and we are on the first full day of "today's turkey trot." we are somewhere in maryland where we are going to surprise some unsuspecting person who loves their favorite celebrity chef who we have in this bus! it's going to be big. we can't wait to show you. but first we have to tell you about the fact that air quality is really bad just south of here. over seven states under some sort of air quality advisory because of over 30 wildfires with more than 100,000 acres burning. and there's no relief in sight. some of these fires are only 10% contained because of all the drought conditions we've had from nashville, into charlotte, up into virginia and down into georgia. the air quality is a mess and it is going to continue right now because of those hazy, unhealthy air quality conditions from all
at this -- no rain. atlanta's gone almost a month without any appreciable rain. birmingham, 57 days and the drought continues there. it's been very warm. in fact, october was the third warmest october on record across the country. it is now the second warmest year from january 1st to october 31st on record and with november's warmth that we have been seeing, we could get up all the way to number one. you can see that warmth is going to continue today but we will see some changes coming as we get on to the latter part of the week. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next
little culinary joke there. >> well, say hi to bobby for us. >> see you when i get back. coming up, on a much more serious note, a georgia father convicted of murder after locking his own son in a hot suv. this morning, his ex-wife's emotional response to that verdict. and, trading places. an inside look at how donald trump's personal life will change when he moves into the white house. but first on a tuesday morning,
