a lot of students that come through our doors, and a lot of the questions they ask us -- how do you select the perfect pan? copper pans -- expensive. cast-iron pan -- heavy, hard to heat up. you need lots of fat, oil, butter. if it's not cleaned properly and you see this rust in here, we're gonna have a health issue. aluminum pans are very cheap. the handles get hot quickly. the gauge of the aluminum is very thin, so the pan will warp. not very good. this pan, it takes a lg to heat up, it can't go into the oven, and the coating will peel over time. copper chef's my favorite pan. goes into the oven, conducts heat well. it also has the induction plate. with the square pan, you have more surface so you can fit more product into the pan. the ceramitech coating is new to the market -- very durable, easy to clean, gets up to 850 degrees, and chemical-free. the copper chef gets a five-star

do you accept this as new conservatism? >> no. i will say, look, the positive thing is the gop needed to become the party of workers. and donald trump is forcing that change. the tax it's not ideal policy making, governors do it all the time. the truly extraordinary and from where i sit disturbing part of it is to have a president-elect threatening companies for making business decisions he doesn't like. the fact of the matter is, no one has the leverage to stop him from doing that and it's probably going to be popular. >> paul ryan's house, are they going to roll over. he is threatening 35% tariffs.
2:00 am
he did that again this morning in tweets. >> there are affirmative parts that won't pass the house. i think paul ryan and others had this conception of president trump as the guy who just signs their bills. that's not the way it's going to work. they will find themselves following his lead much more than they expect. you have seen it on the carrier deal. >> you know several hundred thousands jobs churn every week in the u.s. economy. these are 7,000 jobs. he is a great storyteller. this is a narrative that is going to be very appealing to a lot of people. >> it was a bad a out. but the latest -- did you read the carrier letter? it started out saying we are pleased to inform you and ended up talking about all the jobs that would still be shipped overseas. the numbers i'm looking at say less than half are actually staying. >> that truth will not catch up -- >> he was using other people's money. he doesn't like paying taxes. it was a bad deal. the better way to actually say that we are on the side of workers is to look at the tens of millions of service sector
2:01 am
target or walmart or mcdonald's and say i support $15 an hour. >> i will pause it there. interesting ways you both don't like the carrier deal for very different reasons. but very -- it shows you the challenge trump is facing. nerves are still pretty raw on both sides. we will talk to kellyanne conway and joel benenson. as we go to break, we want to mb executive of nbc. he died this week. he revamped nbc and the entertainment street. entertainment street. thought we would honor him here. ?? mapping the oceans. entertainment street. thought we would honor him here. where we explore. protecting biodiversity. everywhere we work. defeating malaria. improving energy efficiency. developing more clean burning natural gas.

2:06 am
are you being sore losers? >> no, i don't think we're being sore losers. i think we have acknowledged and i acknowledged in the exchange that they won. he is president-elect. but i was also saying and taking issue with the notion that there was a mandate and that when you talk about connecting with people over america, hillary clinton had 2.5 million more americans vote for her than donald trump. i'm aware of the currency of presidential elections, the i've been on three winning presidential campaigns. but a mandate is when you win big in the popular vote, when you win big in the election toal college vote. like president obama did two times. i don't recall kellyanne that president obama had a mandate or any republican saying he had a mandate. >> are you being a sore winner? you have done this a few times, your own twitter i think biosays, we won. it's like i dropped the mike.
2:07 am
respect to my colleagues for over two hours before this happened. but the fact is that we are -- we're the ones who understood america. the idea that we're going to talk about the popular vote answers your questions about sore losers. the idea that donald trump doesn't have a mandate after he got 100 more electoral votes than mitt romney, he got 306, it wasn't close. he won states that had not gone republican in decades. had this been a race for the popular vote, we would have won th in california, in new york, stayed in florida, gone to illinois perhaps. these population rich states. we did what you are supposed to do to become president. campaign in the battleground states, actually have an economic message that appealed to workers across the country, actually talk about patriotism, defeating radical islamism, people open their mailbox, they

the idea he doesn't have a mandate when they lost the white house 60 seats in the house, over a dozen senate seats, over a dozen governorships and over 1,000 state legislative seats, this is democratic party is having an identity crisis and a circular firing squad what i heard is, it's bernie sanders fault, anybody but hillary clinton's fault. >> a lot of people look at what you have said and what others have said, including the president-elect at his rally in cincinnati and say, winning. that they haven't been gracious in victory. what do you say to that? >> you know, i'm going to hit back on that. i'm incredibly gracious, humble. every single media outlet, including this one, on good days ignored us, on regular days mocked us. that included when i told you and your colleagues there is an under cover under counted trump vote. there's not. maybe it's under counted for hillary people said.
2:09 am
it portends the momentum that is owned by donald trump. we're the ones with the message. we're the ones turning these counties around that president obama carried twice. we switched 200 counties. we did that with messages that matter. he talked about veterans, talked about defeating terrorism. we were mocked and ignored. go back and look at the headlines two weeks out everywhere. the talk on networks like this, we were completely secretary clinton wasn't even mentioning donald trump's name most of the time. >> joel, let me turn to you. she brought up this. it seems as if -- we gathered the reasons that you and others have given to hillary clinton's defeat. james comey, third party candidate, sexism, young voters shgsz media, obamacare preem ups, bernie sanders, health rumors. what wasn't on there was the point kellyanne brought up, hillary clinton. does she accept any responsibility for this defeat on her own? >> look, i think the reality here is that there was this --
2:10 am
better message on the economy. when you look at voters who said they vote for someone who cares, hillary clinton won. when you look at voters who said the economy was the number one issue, hillary clinton won those voters. i think the issue now going forward is -- i think kellyanne conway again today, kellyanne talked about his economic message. i think he raised the bar very high. this is a guy who during the campaign built his businesses on the back of the little now voters are going to hear him as president call for giving the biggest tax cuts in history to corporations and very wealthy americans. >> you are not answering my question. do you accept this -- >> he did answer your question. they never accept it. >> i also said in that panel when we were asked what we have to do differently during the course of the day, the democratic party can't just keep winning the popular vote in presidential elections. we have won them five out of seven times. we have to rebuild at the state levels.
2:11 am
of the states that they had to win. they did a good job, obviously, in michigan and wisconsin by eeking out narrow wins in those states where we -- they hadn't won previously. >> joel, let me ask you this. if the election -- i will get you one more shot. joel, if the election were the first tuesday in january and you had another six weeks here, what's one thing you would do differently in the last four weeks of the campaign? >> just probably do more. >> what though? i would hit more states more frequently. i would probably ask for another debate. probably ask for a faith forum to hear hillary clinton and donald trump both talk about their roots in faith and the strength of hers which i think are dominant. i think we would also probably keep talking about those tax cuts i just mentioned that we're going to hold him to during the course of his presidency. the biggest tax cuts. i don't think that's what working people think they're
2:12 am
help them. that will be the high bar he has to clear. >> kellyanne, he went on this thank you tour. he will continue it on states he won. does he have a plan -- do you give list advice -- i asked you this before and you haven't answered it -- to go to states but meet with voters who didn't vote for him? he is down in the popular vote. say what you want. the california vote counts as much as the pennsylvania vote. considering howdy viede e does he have plans to do that. >> he does. i have answered this many times. he started saying i will be the president for all americans even those who did not support me. he is not even inaugurated and he is going around doing this, bringing -- keeping jobs in the country through carrier. he will be a very actively traveled president. joel hit on something that's absolutely correct but wasn't done by his campaign. you have to show up where the
2:13 am
have a flood of advertisements and this ground game that didn't work. you have to go where the people are. secretary clinton took off a lot in august. we had 137 events to her 88 or so events after these conventions. donald trump did not take five days off before that final debate on october 19th in las vegas. secretary clinton did. everybody said, she's so brilliant to take off five days. voters said, where are you? come to me. bring the message here. he will be a very active president. cranny of this country. he will be the president to all americans. it's time for those who lost to say he is their president, too. >> kellyanne conway, joel benenson, you are correct, neither one of you yelled at each other. >> this is the full jersey. >> fair enough. >> new york, kellyanne. >> thank you both. a little less heated than harvard. in case you missed it, hillary clinton lost the election despite leading in the

we are back. data download time. only five times has the person who won popular vote not won the presidency. two have been in the last five elections, since 2000. we might see it happen more frequently in the future. of the six most populous states, democrats have won california, new york and illinois by double digits since 1992. of the other three, democrats have been making gains in texas. it was b hosting their own in florida. only pennsylvania of the top six seems to be edging to the red column. all of this helps explain hillary clinton's growing popular vote margin. over 2.5 million votes right now, actually. of course, part of the reason for the popular vote, electoral college split is something we're calling sue per flewous votes. once a candidate wins a state, is it doesn't matter how many votes they win it by.
2:18 am
unnecessary. by that standard, hillary clinton had 10 million extra votes that made no different to her electoral college total. donald trump by the way had 8.3 million, quote, extra votes. that's despite the fact that trump won 30 states while clinton won 20 plus the district of columbia for a final electoral vote tally. the democratic strongholds are growing in population. they will continue to favor democrats in the future. while until we see a republican win the popular vote again. that doesn't mean they won't win the presidency. because it's in the states in the industrial midwest where this election was decided. pennsylvania, wisconsin and michigan. if these states continue to be tightly contested with a slight shift, tilt to the right, we may continue to see this split between the popular vote and the electoral college when republicans win it going forward. when we come back, democrats have been losing big time at the

2:23 am
back now with the panel. heather, i want to start with you. because house democrats this week had the first shot at sort of deciding a new leadership team or stick with the old leadership team. they decided to stick with the metrics, they didn't -- they didn't seem to earn the right to stay. why do you think they're there? >> i think the change at the top is always going to be the hardest. what you're seeing right now across the country is more grass roots mobilization of democrats and would-be democrats. we have to remember that a third of young voters voted for a third party candidate. there's sort of a roiling prairie fire going on right across the country. activists who are saying we want
2:24 am
sitting in the offices of schumer and carper and a bunch of other folks saying don't actually shake hands with the white supremacist white party at this moment. there are trends going on at this right now that are not reaching up to the question of who -- you know, the leadership rules and the congress. but that you will start to see in 2017, '18 and primaries. there's as much energy at the base of the democratic party right now that there was at the tea party. >> there's a simple explanation for why she wanted the math, for democrats. two-thirds of the house democratic caucus comes from the west coast or the eastern seaboard. >> as much as the ocean -- >> the base is not middle of america. tim ryan from rust belt ohio. when we first started in the business, chuck, a lot of these things were called southern democrats, midwestern democrats, blue dog democrats. they are gone. >> isn't that the problem? given the electoral college? >> that is the problem. so democrats have a geography
2:25 am
have a demography problem. but the geography problem means they're not back in control in the house. >> i look at this election and it's always funny, democrats have a white working class problems and it look at the popular vote thing and look at texas, and the republicans have a latino problem. both things are correct. >> well, i think what democrats will likely conclude is the way they try to reach trump voters is with the bernie sanders style economics. what i think they'll have a much harder time need to make some nod to the culture concerns of these voters. if the bill clinton circa 1992 were running this year, someone like colin kaepernick would have been ripe for a sister soulja moment. the least you can do for the country is stand up during the national anthem. no democrat would say except for ruth bader ginsburg and she had to apologize. >> i have heard from other democrats who do not want to
2:26 am
they're afraid it would make the base angry, that if bill clinton would figure out how to close this gap culturally. >> that's part of why particularly young people did not support his wife. right? you cannot -- we cannot just follow the conservative southern strategy to try to split working class people who are white from people of color. this is a moment for democrats and progressives of all sort to recognize that when you have a strate t propping up the 1% by dividing everybody else, you will always lose. it will always be close margins. >> also, that it was a change election. we saw it as early as the new hampshire primary. that she was not connecting -- not just to the working class voters but to the young people and to the women -- the young women. that generation gap was a major problem. >> i think another thing that will be difficult for democrats at the end of the bush years,
2:27 am
republicans were ready to move on from bush and the democrats can't move on from obama. >> that hurt the cent republicans in the '90s because they couldn't recover from reagan. reagan. mi - you don't have to wait for a yearbook to share your likes and dislikes. social media gives us instant access to one another, so make sure your kids share the right things online, like silly selfies.

end game time. at that "end game" time. at that infamous harvard session, both campaigns, andrea, you were there, you moderated, both campaigns didn't just tacitly blame the media they unload on it and made it a central part of the grievance from theni is it possible both campaigns are right? >> or wrong. i think look the media we all missed i. we missed a lot of signals. but in terms of coverage donald trump was live and unedited for months and months and months. he got his message through. hillary clinton did not get her message through and that is -- a fair complaint. but that's because of e-mails, that's because of a private server. there was a lot of blame that has not been acknowledged by them.
2:31 am
and her lack of transparency. they didn't have an economic message. a lot of blame but i think the coverage can be faulted from both sides for not being substantive. >> i know where you'll be on the quote/unquote liberal media, but do the clinton people have a case? >> i think the republican candidates felt that trump got extraordinary direct access to the media, but in the general election a lot of the cov think kelly ann is right. broadly speaking, people like us for a solid year treated them like idiots. so it's understandable that having pulled this extraordinary upset off, they might feel triumphant about it. >> part of the media going in before the night of the election saying it was pretty much impossible to trump to win, you had 25% of the trump voters who cast that ballot and didn't think he was unfit for
2:32 am
that there was a protest vote even within the trump vote. when people were looking at those polls and saying, this is just going to be a message vote. i'm going to send a message because clinton's obviously going to win. >> do you think in 20 years when historians look back on this, the media's role will be as high. or it will be celebrity culture that trump took advantage of a cultural moment? >> well, there will be a million books written about that by first is that the obama campaign did this in 2000 8 and the media, they like to go around the media. we don't need the media, we have twitter, we have texting. we have facebook. so they -- on the one hand, it's the media, on the other hand, we can make end runs around the media. what the media has done very poorly is to make congress inept. >> yeah. right. >> sorry. >> that's all right. i have to go. we'll try to alert the affiliates for a second hour.
2:33 am
we'll be back next week, maybe for two hours. because if it's sunday it's "meet the press." >> you can see more "end game" and postgame sponsored by boeing on the "meet the press" facebook page. it was just absolutely terrifying, just thinking of her being scared and hurt made you sick. she was a big smiling, beautiful part of our group. >> it was a stunning transformation. a young mom and teacher, who went from this to this. >> she was like, "look at what i've done." she was so proud. >> her girlfriends with her every high-energy step of the

just lighting up. >> but just as her new life began, so did the mystery. suddenly, she went missing. >> i told all the girls, y'all be prepared. >> no one would be prepared for what came next. >> i was astonished. >> it wasn't an accident. >> it's not natural, it's not right. >> and the most chilling part? >> do you think that heather would still be alive if she hadn't gone through this transformation? >> gosh. >> the motive behind i'm lester holt and this is "dateline." here's andrea canning with "the last dance." >> reporter: there's a place in downtown memphis, tennessee. a little hot spot not far from nearby beale street. they don't play the memphis blues in this club. in the sultry darkness of the rumba room, bodies sway to the

in april 2013, a woman named heather jones came in with her friend to dance the night away, wearing a brand-new news. >> how did she look that night? >> she had her head up so high, and her shoulders back and just beaming she felt absolutely beautiful. >> reporter: there was a time not too long ago when heather didn't feel very beautiful at all. but on this evening, she had the night of her life. >> she reay very much. she was being spun around and danced. >> reporter: just two nights later, everything spun out of control. >> breaking news about a missing germantown teacher. >> reporter: heather jones suddenly and inexplicably disappeared from her home. >> her car is in her driveway. her purse, keys and cell phone are missing. >> thinking of her being scared and hurt made you sick. >> reporter: what happened?
