antebellum and their new album. >> it's nice to see joan lunden here. our friend is in the studio. she was diagnosed recently with breast cancer. had surgery a week ago today. she is an inspiring lady. we'll be talking to her later on in the show. >> cannot wait to hear from her. our top story on a tuesday morning. secret service's ability to protect the president. they come after the stunning revelation that a fence jumper made it all the way to the east room before being subdued. nbc's kristen welker has the latest on this. kristen, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you. secret service director julia pearson will face a barrage of questions on capitol hill today, including why we're learning this morning that omar gonzalez, who had a knife, made it much farther in the white house than previously disclosed. the first family wasn't home when that chaos unfolded here.
still, this all raises questions about that storied agency. shocking revelations about this unprecedented security breach. suspect omar gonzalez got much deeper inside the white house than initially thought, making it all the way to the iconic east room, the site of presidential press conferences and other major events. >> i think everyone's concern is if one person can do it, what if five tried to do it? what if ten tried to do it? >> reporter: once gonzalez entered the unlocked front door of the mansion, he pushed past a guard, ran past stairs and ran to the east room, the entire length of the white house to the other end of that room before he was tackled by a heavily armed agent to the door of the green room. >> two different turns he could easily have been in the white house residence. >> they believe the reason it was muted is because the white
house staff asked for it. >> reporter: it follows another report by "the post" revealing after a 2011 shooting, it took the secret service four days to realize bullets had hit the first family's residence and five days to make an arrest. secret service director julia pearson will be in the hot seat on capitol hill today. president obama appointed her in 2013, tasking her with retooling the agency after several agents were fired for soliciting prostitutes during an official trip in columbia. some lawmakers say this latest breach is a threat to national security. >> it's clear that something needs to be done and something needs to be done drastically. >> reporter: now neither the white house nor the secret service are commenting about the revelation this is morning. the secret service defends its handling of the 2011 shooting saying the suspect in that case is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence.
the hearing this morning is expected to focus on all of the recent security breaches. >> kristen welker, thank you very much. missing university of virginia student hannah graham, the suspect being held in that case has been linked to the unsolved 2009 death of morgan harrington, another young woman who vanished in charlottesville. we'll talk with her parents exclusively in a moment. gabe gutierrez has the latest on the investigation. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: tamron, good morning. police aren't saying exactly what that new evidence is. but the break in the case comes after investigators searched the suspect's car and his apartment and submitted dna samples to the crime lab. this morning, the investigation into 32-year-old jesse matthew's past is widening days after he was arrested in texas and flown back to virginia. state police now say his arrest and new forensic evidence provide a significant break in
an unsolved rape and murder. morgan harrington disappeared in 2009 after leaving a concert also here in charlottesville. she was found dead in a field three months later. her parents have been helping volunteers search for hannah graham, this latest news still sinking in. >> it doesn't change a lot for us, in some ways. you know, our bedroom is still empty upstairs. we're still not going to have the grandchildren, the wedding, those things. >> reporter: when harrington's body was found, dna recovered in that case was also linked to an unsolve unsolved 2005 sexual assault 100 miles away in fairfax, virginia. >> any new lead that is come about -- >> the fbi then rereleased in searching for harrington's killer. whether matthew murdered harrington, residents are stunned. >> it does look similar to him. >> reporter: matthew has not been charged in connection with
those two other crimes and his supporters caution a rush to judgment. >> innocent until proven guilty. >> reporter: intent to defile in the graham case, seen with the uva sophomore on this surveillance video just before she vanished more than two weeks ago. >> hopefully they do get answers as to where exactly hannah is. >> reporter: a bail hearing for matthew is scheduled thursday. he has not entered a plea and, matt, his attorney has not commented on any possible links to other crimes. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you very much. morgan harrington's parents are with us now exclusively. mr. and mrs. harrington, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> even as you have been praying for the graham family the last 17 days you've been dealing with your own pain. jill, you went to charlottesville and hung a sign that said "find hannah." why was it so important for you to be part of that effort?
>> we've experienced firsthand just the anguish of having a child missing and we both feel that that period of time was more difficult for us than actually knowing morgan was dead. so, we have a response, we are desperate to find hannah graham so her family has some answers and we really want to keep the community aware. ask people for any tips or information, physical searches as well as -- >> right. >> -- the new awareness in morgan's case. if anyone has any information that might be useful to law enforcement, we are also asking for that. >> when you heard about the hannah graham case, did you immediately stop and think perhaps there is a connection to the murder of morgan? >> no. i thought it seemed very similar to morgan's situation. so the question of her being
maybe somewhat impaired and someone just picking her up and trying to take care of her. but it really came to light to me about two weeks ago when i saw a picture of the sketch as compared to jesse compared to dreadlocks and weight gain. and at that time i said oh, my gosh, i think it's the same person. >> was his a name you heard before during the search for your daughter? and have police shared anything more? they said there's a forensic link between these two cases. have they shared anything with you that they haven't shared publicly? >> no, they haven't. virginia state police is notoriously and consistently closed mouth. they hold information very tight. and i understand their reason for it. it's been frustrating for us at times because we do want to know. but hopefully now that mr.
matthew is back in custody, they have him and they'll have plenty of time to unravel kind of this snarl of information that's around him. i would like to appeal to him, to please give the family information where hannah is. we need to find hannah graham. it's vital. >> mr. harrington, in closing, obviously there is a certain tragic irony here that it may take the disappearance of another young lady to help you get answers in the murder of your own daughter. >> well, and we've worked over the last five years to raise awareness, to help save the next girl -- the need for safety and watching out for others as well as personal responsibility and it is sad. and we're sad that this has happened. and perhaps this is now a way for us to not have future events like this occur in central virginia. >> dan and jill harrington, mr.
and mrs. harrington, thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you. god bless. there is more fallout this morning from that fire at a chicago area air traffic facility that led to the cancellation of thousands of flights. in the wake of the incident, the head of the faa is now ordering a full security review. nbc's kevin tibbles is at o'hare this morning. good morning. >> reporter: some are saying this act of sabotage is the biggest against the faa since 9/11 and they're asking how it could have happened. this is what it used to look like inside chicago center, one of the most vital air traffic control hubs. now empty, decimated by an act of sabotage to its computer system. >> most catastrophic event i've ever seen. this is synonymous with taking a drone and bombing the whole
place out. >> reporter: today, five days later, many travel plans still in disarray. >> i want to go home. >> reporter: it will take at least two weeks to essentially rebuild chicago's center from the ground up. >> visualize 29 racks of computer equipment. that's what this system entails. 20 of these need to be replaced. >> reporter: suspect brian howard, a 36-year-old contract employee, appeared in court monday. the criminal complaint against howard points to a facebook post in which authorities say he said, quote, leaving you with a big mess. the faa chief told nbc's tom costello the agency is beefing up security nationwide. >> we've increased the patrols and number of personnel we have focused on security at all of our air traffic facilities. >> reporter: with more than 4,000 flights already canceled, some question why more security or supervision wasn't already in place. >> definitely a big wake-up call. we had one person on their
lonesome doing work on very sensitive equipment. >> reporter: as for stranded travelers -- >> insurance is not going to cover it. they're not going to cover t we have to pick up all the expenses. >> reporter: many have had to spend hundreds of dollars and waste hours, if not days, simply trying to get to their destinations. and the global business travel association estimates the cost of just one missed or canceled flight per passenger is about $1,400 in lost productivity and expenses. just imagine the cost of 4,000 packed flights that have all been canceled. it will be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. guys, back to you. >> thank you very much. >> natalie is here, following a massive demonstration overseas. in hong kong, prodemocracy protesters spent another night block streets in an unprecedented show of disobedience, setting a wednesday deadline for response from the government to meet their demands for reform. ian williams is in hong kong
with the very latest. good morning. >> reporter: it's evening here in hong kong. and the crowds are growing again on the fifth day of protests that are fast turning into the biggest challenge to beijing since the tianamen square protest. according to the resignation of the city's unpopular leader. the umbrella revolution, they're calling it. the canopies becoming a symbol of the protest. protecting against police tear gas and pepper spray. though today it was the heat they were fending off. the police have largely faded away. this past weekend response to largely peaceful protest seemed only to inflame the situation and gron drawn more crowds in support of the student. >> we just want democracy. >> reporter: protests have spread to several locations across the city, former british
colony which enjoyed a high degree of autonomy. a massive stepping up of protests, aimed at paralyzing the heart of this city. natalie? >> ian williams in hong kong for us. thank you, ian. iraq says its military has taken back 16 villages east of baghdad from militants. more than 100 militants were killed in the fighting with the help of u.s.-led air strikes, the iraqi military was able to push isis militants back. walmart says tracy morgan is partially to blame for the injury injuries he suffered during a highway accident back in june. the company responded to a lawsuit filed by morgan and three others, saying the plaintiffs were not wearing seat belts when their limo was hit by a walmart truck. the crash killed morgan's friend, comedian james mcnair. the lawsuit claims walmart was at fault because it knew or
should have known that its truck driver had been awake for 24 hours before the crash. after a frightening ordeal at sea, a family is lucky to be on land this morning. a man clinging to a child in water while another man holds two more children on their overturned boat. this happened during a children's fishing tournament off sanibel island over the weekend. the family then battled the choppy waters for almost two hours until sanibel firefighters arrived. fortunately today everyone is okay. they might be cute and some kids may even consider them part of the family. let this story be a reminder to you that giant teddy bears do not qualify as a second passenger in the car pooling in case you needed reminding. a young woman got pulled out for speeding, in the car pool lane and had that big fuzzy passenger sitting shotgun. the woman was cited for speeding, driving illegally in a car pool lane and driving without insurance and the ticket
for that fuzzy bear companion, $818. >> that lady made a little boo boo. >> little boo boo bear. >> exactly. >> that's in honor of al roker. >> not being here. >> exactly. >> i was going to say. >> thank you, natalie. al is making his way overseas for his shine a light project, uso show for the troops with a little help from jay leno. so, dylan is here with a check of the forecast. >> we have some severe storms possible in the forecast. we saw some of our strongest storms in denver yesterday where we saw golf ball sized hail. this area of low pressure has that swirl, counterclockwise rotation right here. there's a big clash in temperatures. look how cool it is out across the great lakes. temperatures today will be well below average. down through kansas city, st. louis, temperatures running 10 degrees above average. that clash in air masses today will cause some storms,

husain gets a 15 yard penalty. >> nice seeing people recognize the absurdity. they talk to husain about this play and he didn't take any of the religious part of it to task. he said it's probably because he was excited and just slid. anyway, this moment had a lot of people talking. >> that seems to be a little bit of a contradiction there. >> you see the other pictures of people praising and thanking the person they believe in. >> i'm just upset that the patriots lost. >> let's go back to the real story. >> carson, thank you very much. college football coach under fire for his handling of a possible concussion during a game. school officials issuing an apology overnight. we'll have the latest on that. >> that's a real talker. plus, your first look inside, yes, george clooney's lavish italian wedding and his bride's stunning gown.

university of michigan's head coach, the football coach, is defending a decision to allow his quarterback to return to the game after the player showed signs of a concussion. willie is here with the latest on that. good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. shane morris, that quarterback, was pulled out of saturday's game after he took a big hit and appeared wobbly on his feet. minutes later he was sent back into the game. that's the decision many are questioning and even calling for the coach's firing. >> for those of you who know or don't know, i would never put a kid in that situation. >> reporter: university of michigan coach braid ho can. e under fire and speak out monday over his decision to keep sophomore quarterback shane morris in the game after a devastating hit. >> under pressure again. throws. >> roughing the passer. defense on the 55. >> reporter: appearing dazed, wobbling and limping from a leg injury sustained earlier in the game, morris remained on the field for the next play. >> number seven is still in this game is appalling.
there he goes. it is appalling that he was left in on that play. >> reporter: morris is then replaced by a backup. but when that player's helmet is knocked off on the ensuing play, morris is sent back in. >> shane morris cannot be going back into this game. this is not good player management. >> reporter: the backlash was immediate. the #firehoke gaining popularity on twitter. monday, every question in hoke's weekly press conference was about the decision to keep morris in the game. >> guys play beat up every day. well, when he went like this to the trainer that he was fine, that tells you something. i don't make decisions who plays, who doesn't play as far as when there's injuries or if there's -- in particularly, if there were any head trauma or head injuries. >> i think it is reasonable to think that brady hoke may not have known how badly his quarterback was injured. i just think it begs the question as to if he didn't see it, why didn't somebody alert him to what was going on?
>> reporter: in a statement release this had morning, michigan's athletic director confirms morris did suffer a mild concussion and high ankle sprain in the game, adding in my judgment there was a serious lack of communication that led to confusion on the sideline. unfortunately, this confusion created a circumstance that was not in the best interest of one of our student athletes. i sincerely apologize for the mistakes that were made. >> university of michigan now plans to keep a medical professional up in the press box to help communicate injuries and protocol to the sidelines. they already had a neurologist on the sideline. but one note, unlike most head coaches, braid hoke does not wear a headset. some people think that could have been helpful in this situation. one other thing, this fire hoke hash tag, michigan is 2-3. they lost three games in september. a lot of that is about how poorly they're playing. >> and they got drilled at home. the announcers were all over this, just for the leg injury
alone, then he got the helmet to the head and they were saying get this kid out of there. >> it's not enough to say the player was waving me off. that's not the player's call. that's why you're there. >> willie, thanks. carson, are people talking about this online? >> yeah, they are, matt. you can see, who should decide when an athlete is sidelined due to the injury? 64% saying the coach. 36% the player. patrick writing in hoke needs to be fired. not because of the losses but because he put shane morris in danger. and player safety is more important. from bryan fisher, i believe hoke, that he would not play a concussed player. however it's the fault of him or the staff for not recognizing that morris should not be out there. #orange room if you would like to follow it. >> how much we've talked about concussions from peewee to nfl and the proper way to handle this. >> no question. let's get a check of the weather from dylan in for al. >> it's a little cloudy in the northeast today. we'll see a chance of a few
spotty showers. not a washout by any means. this frontal system is bringing most of the rain offshore. also a little bit unsettled across parts of central and northern florida right where that stationary front is. this area of low pressure is going to intensify a little bit overnight. we could see more showers and a lot of clouds in the northeast wednesday. those will be off and on scattered across the area. basically down through florida, where we will see most of our heavy rain. some of those downpours could end up reducing three to five inches of good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. a foggy, rainy start for most of the area and fog will disappear and showers come to an end and a slight chance of a shower later today as clouds are decreasing and the temperature increasing into the 70s this afternoon. chance of showers this evening and again tomorrow, but by thursday, we're drying out with bright sunshine. high of 75 degrees. a sunny start on friday and then clouds later on friday could see showers friday evening and then
it turns cooler this weekend. have a great day. >> and that's your latest forecast. >> dylan, thank you very much. coming up on trending, are you looking for a job? one color that you should never wear in an interview. >> none of us are wearing the color but it's very close to our heart. and everyone is waiting for your first look at george clooney's intimate wedding album. plus what he is saying about his big day. there is more news, believe it or not, from that wedding after this. thank you for being my hero and my dad. military families are uniquely thankful for many things, the legacy of usaa auto insurance could be one of them. if you're a current or former military member or their family, get an auto insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life.

saturday night. there were four speeches by loved ones and at the end, we're told, there was a lengthy kiss in front of the hundred or so enthusiastic guests and revealed for the first time this morning, the wedding dress. she looked stunning. a white, off-the-shoulder wedding dress complemented by a white bouquet. george clooney and amal alamuddin gazed into each other's eyes, the wedding dress being fitted. >> it's french laced and encrusted with pearls and diamante. it has a circular train, beautiful veil. it is a classic looking dress. >> marriage, clooney told "people" magazine feels pretty damn great. it looked fun, too. arrived by boat in a tuxedo.

she walked in and as soon as she walked in, i knew by her demeanor. >> you did? >> i knew by her demeanor. she just wasn't even looking at me. and she sat down and she said, you have breast cancer. >> well, i know you, because you're a journalist for many years. i know you probably wanted to get to business, like what do i need to do. >> yep. it was like at a meteoric speed, you're propelled into the world of breast cancer, because they don't know if they've caught it early or late. >> she had aggressive stage two triple negative breast cancer. she chose to do an experimental treatment, 12 rounds of toxic chemotherapy, then a lumpectomy. tell me about the outpouring, when you first announced it, what did you feel? what came to you from people who watched you for years? >> boy oh, boy. i did not know what was going to come down the pike. i mean, i got up the nerve to go on and say the words, i have
breast cancer. then it started. thousands and thousands of tweets, facebook messages, e-mails into my website of people saying, i'm praying for you. of people saying, you're strong. you're the strongest person i know. you're going to beat this. and then i would stop and say, oh, god, please let them be all right. am i really that strong? >> how was that so impactful? >> they really felt like they knew me and they were people -- i was in their living rooms and their bedrooms and their kitchens every day for 20 years. and i realized that thousands of people were taking the time to sit and say to me, i'm going to include you in my prayers, it totally changed my relationship with the viewing audience. >> you knew they loved you? >> yeah. >> sitting in your home with all your beautiful children. >> yeah. >> i mean, i can't imagine that
wasn't the first thing you thought, like oh, my gosh, my kids. >> you know, you think, i'm needed. you know, i have twins who are 9, twins who are 11. i have three grown girls in their 20s and 30s, but i feel just as needed by them. they're just getting married and having babies. it just gives you this much, much greater appreciation for life. and it's a shame that you have to go through something that almost takes life away to appreciate it more, but it certainly does do it to you. >> it sure does. joan is with us now, serving as a special correspondent for our "pink power" series. joan, hi! >> hi, guys. >> you got emotional just watching it. tell us how you're feeling. it was a week ago today that you spoke with matt and i about your surgery. you had the lumpectomy. how are you doing today? >> a week later, i'm very sore, but feeling quite well. the surgery went well. they got, you know, clean margins and nodes and things.
but there's still -- you know, it wasn't -- we didn't completely get rid of the entire tumor with the first round of chemo. so now we step back again. and this is the challenge of breast cancer. you wage a little war. and then you have to step back and say, so what do we need to do next? do we need to do more chemo? do we need to do radiation? you listen to all these opinions and the odds and then you have to make a decision. it's crazy. >> do you feel that you have to make that decision quickly? >> no. >> do you have the luxury -- >> no. >> -- of a little reflection on this? >> oh, yeah. i mean, we're going to sit. i have an appointment on friday with my oncologist. and she and my cancer surgeon. i mean, i've got a great team of doctors and it requires a team. you know, it's a very complicated battle, whether you're -- whatever kind of cancer you are battling and triple negative happens to be a little tougher to deal with than regular breast cancer and then,
of course, there's the women with metastatic breast cancer and any of us could, unfortunately, get to that stage. >> you have a great attitude, okay? i knew that from the minute i spoke with you to the time you got here in the studio. the hairdresser was fixing your wig and you said don't make it look like a wig. >> you know, sometimes you just want to give voice to other people. you want to put a face that says, all right, i'm going through this but i'm still me. and i think women are incredibly tied up in their hair and their hairstyle. 20 years ago, women didn't talk about this. in fact, women wouldn't go and get a breast exam because they were so afraid of losing their hair or losing their breast. and that's still going on today, but what's the alternative, matt? it's losing your life. >> you said something in that piece. you said people are coming up to you saying you're the bravest
person i know. you're a public figure. do you feel an overwhelming responsibility to be brave? is it okay to just be scared? >> yeah. and, listen -- i mean, i'm scared this week, you know, having to try to make this big decision about what do we do next. but at the same time, by being responsible, by assuming this role and trying to be a voice for women and trying to make a difference and to try to get women out there to realize that early detection is everything -- don't think that it's okay to wait another year for the mammogram. don't wait till you're 40, if you have a lot of it in your family. maybe you need to get it earlier. that is going to depend on your survival. and in a way, it makes the whole fight better because it turns it into something very meaningful. i mean, i'm going to have to deal with this. i mean, i was most upset because i washed my face sunday night and my eyebrows went away.
i'm like, right before the "today" show? really? really? >> i think you're -- you're going to be here all week. you're going to help a lot of people. >> i hope so. >> hoda helped a lot of people when she shared her story. we're looking forward to you being here. >> thank you. >> tomorrow is the start of breast cancer awareness month. we're turning the plaza and the orange room pink. if you're a survivor in the area, you're invited to join us. you can share your inspiring photos using the #pinkpower. we encourage you to do that. let's go over to tamron. >> thank you matt, hoda and joan. tyler perry is an accomplished writer, actor, producer and director and he has a key role in the highly anticipated movie "gone girl," playing a powerful defense attorney. >> of course i defend nick. just because this guy isn't walking around weeping doesn't mean he's not hurting. >> the hallmark of a sociopath is a lack of empathy. >> the truth is you have to be a sociopath to behave normally in this situation because it's the most abnormal situation. >> no, no. excuse me. tanner, tanner, are you trying to tell me that this photo is
remotely in the realm of acceptable behavior? >> i'm so sick of being picked apart by women. >> tyler perry is here with us. good to see you. this tanner bolt is nothing -- you're watching joan lunden's interview and you're like, how is she doing? you can't take your eyes off the screen with joan. she's a champion. >> i'm praying for her. >> you're playing a guy who could not be the most opposite of tyler perry. >> i said are you sure you've got the right guy? i thought, man, this guy is very johnnie cochran-ish, very cool and slick. but he's kind of sleazy. johnny wasn't sleazy. he is a smart and great attorney. i wanted to try my hand at it. >> this movie is going to be huge. solely based on the book. had you -- were you aware of the phenomenon? >> not at all. had i been, i probably would have passed on it. >> really?

would watch parents read this to their kids to make sure the book was easy for everyone to zblnds how did you find the focus group? >> my friends and cousins, i would boro family units a lot. >> you would tell them first? >> i wouldn't take them away. i would go to their house and say read this to your kids. and i would watch. the great and tricky thing about a kid, kids do not fake laughter. so they're laughing or they're not. when they do laugh it's like no other drug on the planet. >> you have words in here that are totally made up. >> of course. >> so i need some definitions. badungy face. >> it's an exclamation, matt. it's not an adjective or a noun. it's something that you would blurt out in a moment of distress. >> so if you dropped a drink on yourself, you might say -- ba-doongy face. that's my interpretation.
the grown-up is forced to read all these silly words and they could make them all their own. >> these are completely made up. blurph? >> whatever you want it to mean. >> a glurgr-ga-wocko? >> it would be a very silly experience for the kid. >> do you have a list of word that is haven't been included in this book that are going to be included in the follow-up book? >> i have a few that are waiting to be used, yeah. >> you're still acting. mindy project. >> yeah. >> how is that going? >> i enjoy it, yeah. what are you getting at? >> no, no, i'm saying do you find it hard to move from one show to another when you have so much success on one program? >> well, thank you, matt. i enjoy having a lot of variety. to me, it's all about expressions of the same thing.
trying to make people laugh and engage them, whether it's 4-year-olds or mindy and her friends on the set of the mindy project. whatever i do, it's really just every audience, i think what can i do to entertain them? will this work, will that work? it's sort of the great joy that i'm always seeking. >> i love watching part of your ensemble cast. whenever i you leave a show i always say the same thing. ba-doongy face. >> thank you, matt. hope we popularize that today. >> absolutely.

>> incredible. the news at the white house broke in "the washington post." guy jumps over the fence. we know all that. we are learning that he made his way much deeper in the white house than we were initially told. omar gonzalez, military veteran, entered the unlocked front door after darting across the front lawn, pushing past a guard inside we're learning now, turning left, past the stairs that lead to the family's residence. in other words, he had access to the residence, the stars that went up. he made it all the way to the east room where he was tackled by a heavily armed agent. if he made a couple of wrong turns he could have been in the residence. an alarm had been muted by the request of the white house staff. they said it was annoying, it was too loud. they turned that off. >> not a good idea. >> gonzalez, as you know, was carrying a knife had, a hatchet and ammunition in his car.
by the way, today secret service director julia pearson facing very tough questions up on capitol hill about the incident. you'll remember as well that the first family was not in the home, thank goodness. this report yesterday, we didn't know this a week ago. we thought he gets to the front door where he's stopped. no, he got in the front door, pushed past somebody and ran past the steps that go up to the place where the president, first lady and their two daughters sleep at night. >> that's the issue of transparency. that detail, we didn't need to wait how many days now, over a week or so to find out that detail. and that is, i think, what concerns people. that you're not getting the full story. of course, there has to be secrets in place to protect the first family. quite honestly, the first family and the staff who are there all the time. their lives are in swrepd as we jeopardy as well. that's not a short run. that's not just a hop, skip and a jump to get to where he went. >> throughout the residence there's secret service. so why did it take -- i guess he pushed past one agent and then
another one finally tackles him. >> they all have radios. >> here is a guy who had already been -- in july, he had previously been flagged. he was on their secret service list because he had been -- i guess he got a traffic violation outside in virginia. and apparently had weapons in his car, had a map -- >> map. >> -- of washington, d.c. with the white house circled inside a bible. here is somebody who clearly had intent to do something and was on their list, but yet he is running through the white house and nobody says "get the guy!" you know, take him down. >> that 2011 incident where shots were fired at the white house windows and the secret service didn't know about it until four days later. the reporting of all the layers that got through there, guards outside the fence. once you're inside the fence there's a guard in the booth. the dogs can be released. all a manner of things that could have happened. the fact that he could open the
front door which was unlocked. >> unlocked ? >> and simply push past a secret service agent and get that close to the president, it's terrifying. i hope there are huge overhauls coming. >> chris jansing reported on this since the beginning and she has interviewed a number of first ladies and that's the number one concern especially with children. my family is a target. i have children in this home. and you sign up for it, of course. but your children do not. >> right. >> and that's part of it. these hearings, to willie's point, huge and significant. hopefully something comes out of that. far from that, but still interesting to watch. you think you've heard everything about george clooney's wedding, the dress is made by alexander mcqueen. no. it's made by oscar de la renta. we're learning that today. "people" magazine. there were all these rumors that it may be "vogue" magazine. no "people" got the scoop. 25 pictures from inside amal and george clooney's wedding.
they say that the speeches were emotional, 200 people were there. everyone laughed and cried. they had a little hip-hop in honor of willie. >> me? >> yes, because you couldn't make the wedding. multiple clothing changes. spectacular. hollywood glamour. they kept it intimate despite all that craziness outside it was very intimate inside. >> amal's mom apparently during her speech said george we love you truly, deeply and sincerely. we enjoy your charm, wit, intelligent conversation and generosity. you are simply perfect. we all knew that. >> we knew that. >> "people" magazine report that is one of amal's friends pointed out that george clooney has had, you know, a past with the ladies. >> they went there? >> yeah, he was the bachelor of all bachelors. that is pretty much the girlfriend -- this is a warning to george clooney, don't mess
this up, buddy. >> i like it. i like it. cover of "the new york post," scene from a vogue photo shoot with amal at the fitting for her wedding dress. >> so "vogue" and "people," everybody has some stake on it. >> there you have it. all right. what time do you guys go to bed normally? we are kind of early birds. we have to get up early. >> 11:30, 12:00. >> too late. >> 11:30, 12:00? >> yes. >> that's way too late. >> i think i went to bed at 11:00 last night. >> i'm 9:00, put the kids to bed and try to get to bed at that time. apparently if you get one hour's sleep before midnight is worth two hours after midnight. >> i didn't know that. >> yeah. they say apparently if you have an hour of sleep before midnight it's like getting real deep sleep, better sleep. apparently sleep experts say perhaps not true. stanford university expert says it's a mistake actually to go to bed too early. maybe you're on to something here. they say the ideal bedtime
should be 10 to 15 minutes before you want to fall asleep. i'm one of those people, though, i watch the sleep if i can't fall asleep which then it makes it worse. >> yeah. >> if you're trying to sleep when your body is not ready to go to sleep yet it's like swimming upstream. it makes you more, as you would expect -- more stressed out. >> if i get into bed too early, i suddenly start thinking about everything i need to do. >> it makes it worse. >> yeah. i. >> i usually turn the clock around and don't look at it. if you want to be up at 7:30 and want to get, say, 7 1/2 hours of sleep, they recommend you go to sleep by 11:are 445. more than seven hours sleep would be amazing. >> i don't think i know anyone who says they get enough sleep. i mean no one. >> no. >> any occupation. >> no adult. >> no adult. >> best sleepers? 8-year-olds apparently. >> 8-year-olds? >> you want to sleep like an 8-year-old? >> no stress. >> not a care in the world.
>> somebody's going to set out my clothes. someone's going to feed me. >> until they have nightmares. >> you don't get in bed and just go to sleep. for me when i get in bed, that's the first quiet moment of the day. i return e-mails and read through a few things. >> i try not to. i do that earlier in the evening. i try to turn that over again and read a book. >> that's nice. is that's very smart. >> my mind needs to totally declutter and relax. >> i'm a virgo. yes, i believe in astrology. i'm a virgo. you'll get e-mails from people. why do you promote -- whatever. i believe in it. and i obsess over things to the point where i believe i'm always missing something. so i keep my phone -- if i go up to go to the bathroom or something i'll look in fear that i've missed something. i can't take my phone and completely detach. >> seem to have it within arms reach. >> fear of missing out.
>> she has phone problems. >> they say it's something that's out there. >> really? >> yeah. >> we should do a segment on that. >> fomo. what does your candy say about you? a list of candies, popular ones and a glimpse into our lives, much like astrology. >> there it is again. >> mini snickers, twix, almond joy, if those are your favorites, you clearly bought the giant assortment bag at one of the weekly target, costco -- >> that's what you give out at halloween. >> is that what that says? >> yeah. >> full-sized candy bars, you give out a full-sized candy bar, obviously money is no object. you hang out with willie, jay-z and beyonce. >> we're very close. >> werther's original. >> i like a werther's. >> it means you're 80. >> it lasts long. >> this is the one i take issue
with. mary jane. >> what are they? >> they taste like peanut butter. they're chewy. if you want give out mary jane's it means you're 90 years old. i disagree completely. >> a poor planner. >> what about quarters back in the day? when i run out of candy. >> apples, by the way, just don't even bother. seriously? just shut your porch light and watch tv. i agree with that. i don't like when people give out these snacks and then when they get -- the toothbrush and the floss? >> that's the dentist. >> turn your porch light off. see you at christmas. see you another time. >> these are our favorites. i do like to give out m & ms. >> snickers. >> do you like the plain or peanut? >> i like plain. >> i can't open this. >> why? oh, because your hand?
>> dylan dryer is in for al. >> does that mean there's twix over there? >> no, but that's a great one. >> that he the only candy that's not over there? >> or kit kat. >> i'm a jumbo mix of candy. i like that. our triggering mechanism to fire off showers and storms. we've got this warm front separating the really cool air up in chicago. it's 13 degrees below average. st. louis will be 10 degrees above average with a high of 86 degrees. it's right along this frontal boundary where we'll see some stormy weather. we could end up with hail, wind good morning, i am meteorologist bill henley. a foggy, rainy start for much of the area. the fog will disappear, showers come to an end this morning, then there's a slight chance of a shower later today. clouds are decreasing,

moments, with the port in her chest and her tubing or how the treatment made her stomach protrude to the point where she was uncomfortable wearing shirts. whenever she's struggling later in life i want her to look back and remember so she can get through anything. having a child with cancer changes you forever. you look at the simple moments and really do appreciate them more. natalie was high risk and we're finally almost out of the woods but too many families are less fortunate. i want all children, including natalie, to be able to climb trees until they can climb them with their own kids. >> little natalie is here with her parents, andrea and dan and her sister, hannah. also with us is dr. ann riley, from the children's hospital of philadelphia. good morning. >> thanks for having us. >> little natalie. love your name. happy birthday. i heard you just turned 5. did you have a nice birthday? >> yeah. >> yes? hannah, tell me about the birthday party.

kids who do not and the family whose can't do it themselves as well. >> you really say, i think -- you call yourselves a mom-cologist. you have to do it all to help keep your family together. but at the same time think about the other kid whose suffer the same fate. dr. riley, we talk about pediatric cancer, it's the leading disease killer of children. yet funding is so low for research. why? >> well, i think that there are so many adults that get cancer that a lot of the funding is diverted to the adults. nih, national institutes of health, fund a lot of the cancer institutes in this country and farm s pharmaceutical companies fund the research. >> you've been such a good big sister for your sister natalie and now i hear you're doing something very special at the end of this month. what are you going to do?
