questions. justin clark does not claim his son is perfect but he says the high school freshman was a vic trim of severe bullying by fellow students. he believes police used unnecessary force by shooting his son as a first line of defense. we want to mention that justin gave us permission to show his son's face in this story. >> my son wasn't just some knife-wielding psychopath. he wanted to make sure that he wasn't beat up and robbed. >> he was >> absolutely. >> reporter: cell phone video posted online shows the troubling scene as it unfolded last week at the high school in reno. students scattered as 14-year-old logan clark wielding two knives lunged at classmates. another video shows a campus police officer arriving and firing a single shot. the boy drops to the ground, writhing in pain. >> you've got to remember that he just got hit two or three
him and quite a bit bigger. >> reporter: according to logan's father, his son was a victim of bullying saying logan was punched by a student right before the incident. his bloody mouth visible in the video. >> he just doesn't want to be attacked anymore and that's what happened. do i think that the officer -- i think the officer could have evaluated that if he would have just paid attention a little bit. >> so you can understand how angles, that perhaps he could have been perceived as a threat and that the police officer had to make a split-second decision? >> it is easy to see on the video. he's like this. that's a defensive posture. that's not an attacking posture. he's bleeding from the mouth. obviously something's happened before this -- before the video. none of that was taken into account. >> reporter: clark says his son had been previously suspended for fighting, a result he says of a previous bullying incident he reported to the school.
clark's claims or the investigation. but on the day of the shooting, the school superintendent praised the officer's actions, and authorities say the officer's use of force was appropriate. >> the officer gave verbal commands for the student to drop the knife ultimately firing his service weapon to stop the threat. >> they say, he got lucky. he tried to shoot to wound. no, he didn't. he shot my son in the chest. you know? he didn't shoot >> reporter: this is the first image released of logan in the hospital where he remains in a medically induced coma. what would you like to say to the school district and to the police officers about how they handled this incident? >> i'm upset that he didn't have another alternative or he didn't spend more time trying to talk my son down or any of that. for me it would have been hard to shoot somebody's 14-year-old son so easily. >> justin says his son will never shall the same again.
doctors removed part of his lung and he suffered a stroke on friday. now other parents in the community are also questioning police procedure and the decision to shoot logan instead of perhaps using pepper spray or even a taser, matt. >> natalie, thank you very much. let's move on to mr. roker. you have a check of the weather. >> that's right. folks around the great lakes looking at some lake-effect snow. not just some. a lot. we already have lake-effect snow warnings and lake-effect snow advisories. before all is said and done by late tomorrow, we are talking about anywhere from 6 to 12 to 15 inches of snow locally, could even be up to two feet in parts of upstate new york. we've also got the cold, hard facts. minneapolis, your forecast, sunday's low -- 19 below, the coldest day since january 14. chicago, monday, 8 below, the

what leaves people lying in the street. >> so much we don't know about the situation with alan thicke but we do know it followed hockey, so there was exertion. we know he was conscious and alert and even talking to his son before he passed away. of all the things you want to tell people, the first thing you tell them -- call 911. >> 911 is important because they have things you don't have by your side. they have high-dose oxygen, medications, and tools and devices and know how to use them. but you have to tell 911 sometimes where to take you as soon as you are ns everyone right now, as soon as this segment is over find out the closest heart and stroke center to your home. if you collapse at home, tell people take me to this place because they can help me. not every emergency room can open your blood vessels and save your life. you're still better off there than at home but you ideally want to be taken to a place that has interventional ability to open up a closed blood vessel. >> you call 911, you're there on the scene with someone. what's the second thing you should do? >> you can do tons of things.
make sure you are on the ground. if you're standing and you collapse, you hurt yourself. plus, you want to take stress off the heart. if you're lying down, the heart doesn't have to pump so much against gravity, the body is not consuming energy. sit the patient up a tiny bit so they can beat more readily. if you do that they will be able to stay more stable. put a pillow behind them. >> let's get to the aspirin now. you want somebody to be given a full dose of aspirin and not the way we normally take aspirin. >> no. we swallow aspirin. you want 325 milligrams. chew it. i know it doesn't taste good but chew the darn thing because you can absorb the pieces, the crumbs in your saliva, in your mouth. you don't to have to your stomach function. remember, if you're having a heart attack your stomach doesn't work so well. you need that stuff in your blood stream immediately. within seconds of chewing aspirin the beneficial benefits of aspirin are in your blood stream. that's all you need to keep you alive until docs can get to you. >> you take one aspirin a day.
every day. a baby aspirin. i think it makes sense for a lot of folks. but i can't give it as an official recommendation because people do have some side effects but always carry it with you. remember, this is really important. the person whose life you save will probably be someone you know. we drop dead in front of our relatives. carry the aspirin in a pouch. pop it in your mouth or someone else's if they're having an issue. >> we should all be trained in cpr. it would be nice if we know where those electronic defibrillators are located. >> we did a study year olds to adults and they can use the cpr devices as readily as you can. it's so easy. find out where they are. you'll save a life. it will be someone you know most likely. >> dr. oz, thank you so much. see more of dr. oz weekdays on "the dr. oz show." check your local listings for that. al has a quick check of the weather. >> all right, guys. we've got a lot going on. this storm is coming into california now. we've got flood watches and warnings up. the reason for that, we could see anywhere from one to three inches of rain in the foothills,
eight inches of rain before it is all over. this system will make its way across the country. the flood risk for california, snow moves into the rockies. rush hour snow saturday for chicago and minneapolis. early morning snow in the northeast with anywhere from 3 to 12 inches of snow making its way across the country. that's what's going on >> check us out on our sirius xm channel, 108. al, thank you very much.
today at 8:13. scrambling to get your christmas gifts delivered on time? next year your presents could quickly and easily be delivered by drone. that's after amazon completed its first ever customer delivery by drone. ceo of that company, jeff bezos, announced the news himself on twitter. it happened in the uk. the customer ordered a streaming device and, of course, a bag of popcorn. guess how long it took for him to get his delivery? had two miles minutes. dropped in his yard. it helps if you have a wide-open yard like that. >> not manhattan. you guys want to see the sweetest video you're going to see all day? it shows a pair of 2-year-old twins who until last week were conjoined at the sternum. the risky surgery took the medical staff of 50 people. it lasted 17 hours. but things are looking very good. the girls have been recovering from separate beds but on monday
same about ed you know what? they couldn't take their eyes off each other. their mom called the moment a real thrill. this happened at lucille packard children's hospital in stanford, california. >> our best to that family. one thing everyone at this table wants to remember today. what happens at the office christmas party -- which ours is today -- does not always stay at the office christmas party. here's the problem. lot of times things go down at the parnd real problems. here are some tips from the "new york times" how to keep your office holiday party from going off the rails. pretty straightforward. watch your alcohol intake. >> never thought of that! >> watch it go down your throat. >> what's the limit? three drinks? >> one? >> three? >> i think you can do one an hour. >> the other thing, make sure there are adults in place.
necessarily age wise but people who act like adults. i always think you shouldn't stay too long. >> i leave early. >> i always like to find out where the bosses are, then i go on the other side of the room. just keep an eye on them. >> had now to the reason why we have burgers in front of us, you guys. people have been talking about these. they're called beyond burger. al, you'll love this one. one is a meatless patty that used a mix of plant protein. supposed to taste like t thing. we're going to taste each of these. >> one's real and one's not. >> who doesn't do ketchup on your burger? >> it will mask the taste. >> that's close but you can tell it is not. >> i have the answer key right here. >> what do you think, carson? which one is beef, which one isn't? >> this is the non-beef.
>> described as non-beef? i put too much ketchup on it. >> they're getting very, very close to be able to pull this off. >> by the way, it is delicious. >> you've had these? >> i have. >> is this does not taste like a vegan burger. >> usually they crumble. they're not great. nice. >> this has a little bit of a salty aftertaste though. they need to work on that. carson? "popstart!"? >> first we'll get to leonardo dicaprio offering his own touching tribute to alan thick. in the final season he played a homeless teen, he was just 18 years old. he writes on facebook, i will be forever grateful for the opportunity i had to work with alan early in my career. i've seen him a number of times over the years. when alan thicke walked in the room, quite frankly, no one was cooler.
finally, steve harvey, just added yet another gig to his already busy schedule besides hosting a talk show, radio show and daytime and prime time version of family feud. steve will be back to host the miss universe competition next month. sound familiar? yep. well, last year steve mistakenly gave the crown to miss colombia instead of miss philippines. he took on full responsibility for the viral moment. a lot of people will be watching to see who he gives the crown to this that's your quick "popstart!" today. >> carson, thanks so much. everyone is enjoying the burgers. time to go over to mr. matt lauer. >> thank you, hoda. when the "celebrity apprentice" returns next month, there is going to be a new leader in the boardroom. former california governor arnold schwarzenegger. he's taking over for president-elect donald trump who is an executive producer on the show. by the way, it is a program owned and produced by mgm. that airs on nbc. governor, good to see you.
>> could you have ever imagined there would be so much attention around extra drama around this show? >> no, not at all. a year ago i didn't even think -- more than a year ago i didn't even think i watched apprentice that i thought trump would ever leave that show. i used to think, darn it, why don't i have a show like that. that's the kind of thing i would like to do, reality tv. i've never done it before. all of a sudden, bang, he announced for presidency, off the show. i immediately called mar about me? i would like to replace him. >> you seem like a great pick. he's announced he'll retain his executive producer credit. after january 20th he's going to be president of the united states and executive producer of the "celebrity apprentice." does that sound right to you? >> what was great about it was that he was part of the negotiation. so i mean i get millions of dollars for hosting the show but nbc doesn't have to pay for it. trump makes mexico pay for it. isn't that great?
>> i set you up for that. that's my fault. he said he would spend zero time on the show, focusing on the presidency. would you be surprised if you got a call mid season and said, look, arnold, i have a couple of tips for you? >> i always like to get advice but i don't think that he will have time. i think it is perfectly time that he is executive producer credit because he created the show with mark burnett together, so why should his credit go. he made it very clear he has no it is now my show. i am the host. i am the new boss and i am going to run this show. any time he is advisor -- or any one is advisor, if you could add so and so as a celebrity, i would take your advice. >> what's your relationship with him like? famously during the campaign you said you could not support him. after that now-infamous ""access hollywood"" tape surfaces, you tweeted, "for the first time since i became a citizen in 1983 i will not vote for the republican candidate for president," and you encouraged
over party. have you changed your mind based on anything you've seen during the transition? >> well, what changed was that now he is elected. now it is very important that we all support the president. that we all come together and we stop whining and it becomes one nation. because it is -- as obama said many years ago, it is now blue states and red states, it is the united states of america. that's a great letter that i just dug up the other day that president bush, the first, wrote he said, i just want you to know that i respect this office and i respect that you won and you are my president. and i want you to be very successful because if you are successful, then the country is successful." this is exactly what i feel about trump. that's what i felt about obama or anybody. when someone is elected, then you go 1 00% behind them and you
works. >> no, but it doesn't always work like that and it is very hard for people to do that. but that's the effort that we all have to make. i am 100% behind him and i want to do everything that i can to help. but, as you also know, i am an environmentalist. to me it is very important that at the same time -- and it was one of the reasons why i couldn't go with trump is i want to make sure that we are going into a clean environment, into a clean future because that's what proved in california that rolling back our greenhouse gases 25% and going green we still have a better gdp growth than the whole united states. >> you still speak like a politics. during the campaign you said, were you eligible, you might have run. do you think you could have won at least in the primaries? >> you never know. i mean you saw what happened this last year. everything that people predicted didn't happen. it turns everything upside down. look, i ran in california and i
because i was an outsider at the time and they looked for an outsider. the same happened with trump. they looked for an outsider. people are very upset at what's going on in this country, that both of the parties cannot come together. and they hope and pray that this guy, this trump, can bring both of the parties together and hopefully does not run it as a republican administration but run it as democrats and republicans coming together. because it is the only way -- >> you think he's a true repuan you have to be the public's servant. i hope he sees himself serving democrats and republicans. that's important thing. and important thing also is that every press conference he holds, very important here, matt -- that he talks about the "celebrity apprentice" and what arnold schwarzenegger, the new host, he is a stud. he is fantastic on the show.
>> better call him and remind him. >> you know what it is like to make the transition from business and entertainment to politics. so offer him a piece of advice. you talked about advice in the other direction. what's the most important thing he needs to know about the world of politics that he might not know? >> i think the most important, as i said, is to keep working with the other party to bring democrats and republicans and independents, t together, because in the end you do not want to just take from the pool of republicans. you only get 50% of the brain power of the united states. if you take people from both parties, then you get 100% of the brain power. let me tell you something, there is so much brain power in united states. this is, by far, the smartest country in the world and the best country in the world. now the trick of it is to go and make it even better. >> what an optimistic take on things. he had a famous line at the end
kind of made a living off of that. have you thought what your famous line is in the boardroom? >> it could be, "you're term inated, or hasta la vista, baby. or consider this a divorce. >> what you in the eye, says "i'll be back." "celebrity apprentice" premiers monday night, january 2nd, right here on nbc. we've got girl power. first, your local news.

>> we should point out "sing" is by our sister company, universal. by the way, your "weekend outlook" looks like this -- heavy snow coming across the plains, into the northeast on friday. sunshine in the pacific northwest. then on saturday, snow changes to rain in the northeast but central plains, into the great lakes we've got more snow and bitter cold back through the plains. sunday -- sunday the eastern seaboard. dangerous windchills back through plains and midsection of the country. rain and snow moves back the real inventor of the reuben sandwich may be debatable, but its great taste is not. at subway,
bavarian-style sauerkraut, swiss cheese and thousand island dressing on new freshly-baked rye bread. only at subway. >> and of course, we got football tonight, the weekend starts early on thursday night, "football night in america." the rams coming in to play the seah a seattle, washington. cloudy, cold, 33 degrees. on thursday night football. rams versus seahawks. it all starts tonight at 7:30 here on nbc. hoda. >> all right, al, thanks so much. i am very excited. at just 18 years old, el fanning has already worked with some of the biggest names in hollywood. in her new movie, "live by night," she stars alongside ben
whose difficult past is uncovered by affleck's character. take a look. >> why do they hate you so much? >> i'm a crook. you're the chief of police. >> no. you like to. you said you were the mayor. >> is that what i said? what did you say? >> we had two autog >> i showed them to him? >> i showed him two. >> elle fanning, welcome. i'm looking at that clip and this movie and i have trouble believing that you're just 18 years old playing this role. >> yes. >> when you read this script, did you say to yourself, i have to do this? >> i did. at first i thought the script was also written by ben, i knew he was going to star in it and direct in it. he can really do everything.
she's sprinkled throughout the movie but i just really -- it is a very intense part. i knew it would be really challenging. >> she's a preacher. she turns into a preacher. there is a scene in there, elle, where you have to give a sermon. it is not like a quick little thing. how daunting was that during that scene? >> i was nerous because i wanted to just learn my lines pretty much the night before and look over it so it is fresh. but fors when it was written out, it was three pages long. >> hello. >> and i was like -- oh, like immediately when i got the part, i can't do this, i don't know, i'm stressing out. i had to learn it like a couple weeks in advance. it is not like theater when -- i've never done a play before but when we had that sermon scene it felt like it was very theatrical like a monologue or something which i've never done.
what is it like starring opposite the director? there must be a lot there. >> i was nervous about it because i've never obviously had a scene with the director before. most of my scenes are with ben. but honestly, when you're in a scene with him, it doesn't feel like he's judging or critiquing you as a director. he did it, he did it as a character, joe, that he's playing. he had his actor hat on. he'll say cut, then goth monitor, and like -- >> you star opposite a lot off big-shots. in another little movie called "20th century women" opposite annette benning. >> she is the coolest lady in the world. >> let me brag on you for a second. just look at your resume.
