. good morning. too close for comfort. the interpreter just steps from the president now explains he was having a schizophrenic episode. >> please, forgive me. a new interview with nbc news this morning. the question, how did he get so close to so many world leaders. temperatures in the teens and even single digits. get ready, another major snow storm is on the way. scared and safe. the international space station suffers a serious malfunction. so what needs to be done to keep those astronauts safe? and going for gold.
the award season revs up this morning as the golden globe awards are announced today, thursday, december 12, 2013. >> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to "today" on a thursday morning, i'm savannah guthrie. >> i'm matt lauer, we have cold weather in the northeast and in many parts of the country you will have much more on that and that storm that's headed in our direction. >> this will be the fifth storm in a row in the last five weeks. crazy stuff. >> we want to get to our top story. >> a new interview with the man who ired people for faking sign language interpretation at nelson mandela's memorial service. nbc's ron allen is in pretoria, south africa with the story. ron, good morning to you.
>> reporter: good morning savannah, this fiasco could perhaps not come at a worst time during the days of mourning for the late president, nelson mandela. but the interpreter at the memorial service the other day who claim is a complete fraud has emerged today to try and explain his bizarre behavior. this morning the interpreter at the center of the nelson mandela controversy spoke out, defending his performance. >> i have been doing sign language all these years. >> how many years? >> not a question. >> reporter: in a series of interview, he says he is currently a patient receiving treatment for schizophrenia, that he had a breakdown during the event. >> i was excited, i started hearing things in my ears. >> reporter: the interpreter tells nbc news, he has been hospitalized because of his schizophrenia, which also led him to be violent in the past. >> sometimes i will edge on violent on that place. >> reporter: it happened as the
world listened to president obama and other world leaders eulogize nelson mandela. deaf and hearing impaired were watching him and they say understanding nothing. on south african television, who uses its own interpreter for the deaf, the difference was apparent. outrage on twitter. please get rid of this clown interpreter. these pictures show him interpreting at another event a year ago. professionals reviewed his work and say he is a complete fraud. >> i couldn't watch what he would create out of it. it's zero percent accuracy, really. >> reporter: she says one word she did recognize was help. >> did you hear about the sign language interpreter? >> reporter: it got the attention of the late night comics. >> watch what he did here, it's quite obvious. >> reporter: security experts say it's no joking matter. >> this should never happen again, nowhere in the world with
any world leader. if there needs to be someone signing next to the world leader, it should be a video. >> reporter: meanwhile, this morning, new questions of what happened still linger. the south african government is responsible for the interpreter and hired him. this morning a spokesperson says a huge mistake was, in fact, made. an investigation is under way as south africa tries to focus on its long farewell to nelson mandela. savannah. >> ron allen, what a story. thank you very much. >> i think the problem is in fact, if he is mentally ill, there should be no stigma. the problem he admits in the past he has been violent as a part of this schizophrenia, then, something, you can't let a person like that next to world leaders. >> footsteps away from world leaders. you wonder what kind of background check, if any, was done. here at home, that blast of brutally cold weather is standing. >> we have some amazing video to
show you. this is about 20 miles northwest of dallas. there was some melting. just look at this ice just careening off a roof at the great wolf lodge there, then this is colorado, an ice dam breaks, tons of ice comes running down. bitterly cold air and then some thawing and then bitterly cold air. we'll be back to this cold air continuing. it stretches across two-thirds of the country. right now minneapolis is at 7. nart national falls is at 27 belows. feels like it is 15 below in chicago. 18 in roanoke. boston feeling like it's 11 degrees. this afternoon, it doesn't warm up very much. it will feel like 1 above, 1 below. washington 11 and we're watching this storm now make its way from the pacific northwest and it splits off. another system forms along the delmarva peninsula by saturday into sunday.
snowfall amounts, this again, differing models, but we're going with the european model. up to a foot of snow in upstate new york. just to the north of new york city, six to nine inches. some may slide into the city, itself. it extends as far as st. louis. we're watching a pretty big storm that will continue to develop and the cold air is just going to stay with us for two-thirds of the country right on through the weekend. >> again the european model, though. >> we all love european models. al, thanks. right now nasa engineers are working to address a serious issue that could require a space walk in the coming days. tom costello has the latest. tom, what can you tell us? >> reporter: they have been working on the ground in houston and nasa is still working to determine what shut down a cooling station yesterday. they suspect a faulty valve and
they are hoping a software match will fix this. but if that doesn't work, they could have to perform a spacewalk. after the system went down, the astronauts turned off nonessential equipment and rerouted to another cooling loop. board right now, three russian, two americans and one japanese astronaut. space walks have not been allowed since an italian was filled with water during a space walk last july. it likely would okay a repair walk, if necessary. >> another story we're following. this terrifying video of last july's plane crash in san francisco and learning more about the pilot who was at the controls. >> yeah, pilot cook was training pilot flying into san francisco under supervision and now appears he relied too heavily on the flight's automated flight systems that he may not have
fully understood. then cartwheeling down the runway before slamming to the ground. now, an ntsb investigation has found the training pilot, who was flying the plane, was confused by the plane's automated settings. ntsb chairman debbie. >> when we have a situation where we have a pilot in command who doesn't really understand what mode they're in, not aware of what mode a crew might be in. i mean, that's a real issue of confusion. >> reporter: the confusion was over the auto-throttle system that monitors the air speed and triple 7. it was disengaged when the pilot switched off the auto-pilot to manually fly into san francisco. assuming it was working, no one in the cockpit noticed their air speed was falling dangerously low until just seconds before the crash. by then it was too late. veteran safety experts say they have seen too many examples of pilots relying too heavily on automation at the expense of
basic flying skills. >> they were taught to rely on the systems all the time, but they're not taught to, you know, question the system. >> reporter: the korean pilot system a boeing law confused the two. but they contend it is widely used and flying the plane is up to the pilot, not the computer. >> the pilot is the final authority for the operation of the airplane. we try not to put in design elements that can override the pilot. >> reporter: automation addiction in the cockpit is a serious issue. >> we do have an issue in aviation that needs to be dealt with with respect to automation and performance when it comes to the interaction between the aircraft and the human being. >> reporter: overnight asiana released a statement saying we at asiana again express our sorrow for the loss of life and the injuries sustained in the accident and restate our
commitment to taking the steps necessary to ensure that such an accident never happens again. a great deal of focus on asiana training procedures in korea. guys, back to you. >> tom costello with all the headlines, thank you. let's turn to politics now, the house is expectsed to vote today on the bipartisan budget agreement that was reached earlier this week. but getting it past is not going to be as easy as some might have thought. house speaker john boehner is lashing out at conservative groups who are critical of the deal. chuck todd is nbc chief white house correspondent and political director. chuck, good morning to you. speaker's ba eer boehner's crit pretty blunt, wasn't it? >> it was. this has to do with the government shutdown a couple months ago, matt. built up expectations with parts of the republican place. really seeming to anger the republican leadership. but they went along with him. government shutdown turned out to be bad politics and now when they came out against this paul
ryan budget deal did john boehner lash out. take a listen yesterday. >> most major conservative groups, are you -- >> you mean the groups that came out and opposed it before they ever saw it? >> yes, those groups. >> they're using our members and they're using the american people for their own goals. this is ridiculous. >> now, matt, again, this all goes back to the shut down where a lot of the republican leaders essentially went along with the tail wagging the dog idea. let these conservative groups lead the way. turn out to be bad politics and so this is in many ways the establishment fighting back. we've seen it inside the republican party for the last couple of months and now i think you're seeing it come to a head. >> it also goes to spending cuts because some of those conservative groups are opposed to this bipartisan agreement because they lift some of the spending cuts by the sequester which leads me to mitch mcconnell. the minority leader in the senate. he was in favor of many of those
spending cuts. what is he now saying and how important is his support to this bipartisan agreement? >> well, in many ways the senate republicans particularly like mitch mcconnell running for eelection in 2014 has a primary challenge from the right. remember, he is the one of the architect reopening the government and at that time, matt, he said, i'm for this. reopen the government and thought the shut down over health care was a bad idea. he said, you know what, let's not touch the spending levels. he had drawn a line in the sand and bad politics for him to flip now, but, again, he has a free vote. but this is a larger issue, matt. this is the republican party leadership trying to retake control of their republican party away from the tea party conservatives. >> chuck todd at the white house, chuck, thanks very much. meantime, let's go to natalie following a deadly plan accident in hawaii. >> a prominent health official in hawaii was killed wednesday during a plane crash. one of nine people aboard a flight and director of hawaii's
department of health. the cessna went down shortly after takeoff. the eight other passengers survived. no word yet on what caused the plane to go down. an investigation is under way this morning into an apparent fraternity ritual gone wrong that led to the death of a new york college student. authorities say it happened during a weekend trip to it poconos. 19-year-old dang, a freshman was injured during a hazing ritual outside the house. police say he was driven to a hospital where he later died. he was a pledge of an asian american fraternity. the college had no prior knowledge of the event. well, this one sounds like something out of the movie "hangover" a stuffed white leopard worth $250,000 was among the items stolen during a wild party at a mansion in southern california. 16 people, including 13 teenagers were arrested after throwing a party where an estimated $1 million in damage was done. among other items stolen,
helmets from mid-evil times and thousands of dollars in armani suits. more than 100 people attended that party and some suspects were caught after they posted photos of themselv on social media sites. >> good idea. >> good idea there. a fiery crash at a gas station in houston, texas, was caught on camera. you can see this chaotic scene as a speeding jeep collides with a van pulling out of a gas station. the out of control jeep didn't stop there and continued on forward and then slammed into a gas pump setting it on fire. no one was seriously injured. investigators say the woman driving the jeep was pulled from the burning car by a good samaritan. well, cell phones on air planes is the not so popular idea we first heard about last month and today the fcc is expected to take action and if approved cell phones and texting and other mobile services will be permitted when aircraft are flying above 10,000 feet. passengers would not be permitted to use cell phones during takeoff and landing, however. major league baseball pitching a new rule.
now, this would throw out those collisions at home plate. that is where the runners slam into the catchers hoping to knock the ball loose. but because of injury concerns concussions, this is driving the league to do away with the play. the rules committee plans to present the measure to owners for approval at their january meeting. the players' association must also approve it. and wait until you hear this one. a 16-year-old canadian boy who would make elvis proud. take a listen. ♪ i'll have a blue christmas without you ♪ ♪ i'll be so blue that is david sable singing elvis' "blue christmas." now this video has already 500,000 hits and certainly just the beginning for this young talent. i hear johnny cash, incredible voice. but lots of elvis. unbelievable for 16.
>> can we go back quickly to the major league baseball story. the rule you can't have a collision at home plate. my son plays little league. they have those rules. you must slide into home plate. not go in high and knock down the catcher. >> i never thought that was a play. i always thought that was an accident. >> major, major times in baseball history where that has decided a game and there have been some really bad injuries, too. >> looks dangerous. >> natalie, thanks. mr. roker, you're so busy. >> let's talk about the lake-effect snow we're seeing in upstate new york. so far in the last 24 hours, we've seen about two feet of snow between dunkirk and buffalo and you go to the tug hill plateau and red field, new york. 26 inches and glenwood 24 and we'll look at more of the same. in fact, buffalo, looking at snow showers.
later this afternoon into this evening snow squalls will set up and more heavy snow there. in fact, from erie to buffalo, we're talking about 9 to 12 inches of snow. but, again, the heaviest snow between watertown, syracuse, new york, upwards of a foot and a half to two feet of snow on top of what they've already gotten. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. . another chilly start to the

literally. >> good morning, savannah, in the pantheon of world leaders, held la schmidt changed all of that this week at mandela's memorial. the countries may be beautiful and the people who live there may be among the happiest. the truth is americans don't spend a lot of time thinking about places like denmark, less thinking about its first female prime minister helen doreen schmiddle until she did this. seating between the british prime minister and the president of the united states the danish leader did what everyone else in the world would do, she snapped a picture. there are some critics that say mandela's memorial was not the appropriate moment but the confident and apparently spirited p.m. told the danish newspaper there was dancing on the stand and singing and dancing so the mood was positive and then we took a really fun selfie. >> i think for some people it
was refreshing. it was a sense of, hey, you know, she is representing an entire nation. she is an elected official, she is a normal person who likes to take out her cell phone and take a selfie. >> reporter: european leaders do get to rub shoulders with the rich and famous. some are unphased by the company they keep. some fake it. like the time sarah jessica parker showed up and the actress looks confused until a slightly awkward introduction. >> okay. you are the prime minister. i'm sorry. >> just one of many star struck scandinavians that night. >> i think that her brand is i am both the prime minister and an ordinary person who has case and proclivities and goofs around and likes to shop and likes to live a normal life. >> reporter: part of her life includes a passion for handbags, winning her the nickname gucci back home. now the prime minister of
denmark has a whole new claim to fame. the funny thing about this selfie is no one has seen the photo itself, not yet at least. i wonder if the prime minister had a new screen saver. >> it may be on the christmas card. thank you very much. i guess she's seen the selfie. >> let's get a check of the weather now for mr. roker. >> today's weather is brought to you by the new windows, one experience for everything in your life. >> so we have been talking about all this cold weather and, of course, it's really in there. but if you are looking for the nice spot to go to, well, we have found it for you, my friends. we are talking about central and southern florida from daytona beach to tampa. let's check out west palm beach. you can see today, maybe isolated shower or two. look at that temperature. 76 degrees. a little foggy there this morning.

50s toward san francisco, mid-50s in napa. temperatures early next week back in the mid-60s. appreciate it. there is some new drama this morning at the trial involving celebrity chef nigella lawson. michel is in london. good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, matt. former personal assistant cried on the stand saying she was always open with everyone and that nigella authorized her to buy things for herself. she described early on working 12-hour days, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, caring for the kids. and sleeping in the dining room. and she said that when nigella remarried it was a shouting, mean environment. so bad, she said, at one point she quit. if there has ever been a case of they said, they said, it is this. the personal assistants denies
stealing more than a million dollars on credit cards on prada, channel, louis vuitton, dior. they claim that nigella allowed it. they kept her drug habit secret. they seen rolled up bills with credit cards and white powder on nigella's desk, drawers full of prescription pills. the case has forced nigella to admit she used cocaine, but only a handful of times in her life and smoked marijuana at times with her teenage children. the case opened up the finances of a wealthy family. spent more than $75,000 on clothes in one shop, another time when he leaked a particular dress on her, he bought every single dress that existed in london. why exactly is unclear. when one of the sisters wanted a credit card raised to $150,000, it was done. none of which was ever scrutinized because it was considered trivial. now a serious matter before the court, the jury to choose whose
story they believe. today the defense was most upset with the prime minister for being quoted telling a reporter he was on team nigella and is a massive fan. >> all right. michelle kazinski in london. thanks, so much. >> an important on this morning's report. child's school compare? let's take you inside what might be one of america's safest schools. and complete coverage of this morning's golden globe nominations. but, first, these messages. globes nomination, but first these messages [ music playing ] so i got the windows nokia tablet. it's, well, impressive. it's got the brightest hd screen, super-fast 4g lte, so my son can play games and movies almost anywhere, and it's got office for school stuff. but the best part? i got the lumia 928 for my daughter for free, with the best low-light smartphone camera this side of the north pole. dad for the win. mm! mm! mm! ♪ honestly, i want to see you be brave ♪
