matchup. let's start with kristen welker, at clinton campaign headquarters this morning in brooklyn, new york. >> good morning. we are learning secretary clinton is upending her campaign schedule to add extra events in california later on this week. a sign she is clearly concerned about losing the state and its 475 delegates that are up for grabs. secretary clinton spent her memorial day at a parade in chapaquoa, her adopted hometown. she'll get to california sooner than expected for a five-day campaign swing. sanders, who spent part of his moment mor memorial day at a golden state warriors game, has been in the state non-stop. he's been putting in resources to try and win california. the race is nearly out of sanders' reach, but last night, he was defiant.
>> we're trying to run a campaign here in california which, to the best of my knowledge, is unprecedented. we've spoken to 137,000 californians. by the time this campaign is over, that number will be well over 200,000 people from one end of the state to the other. >> polls show it is a tight race in california. secretary clinton leads, but only by two points. 46% to 44%. here's the reality check. secretary clinton will likely win the nomination, whether or not she wins california. barack obama lost california to clinton back in 2008. in this election cycle, a loss in the most populous state would give senator sanders more leverage heading into the convention and over the party's platform. it could leave her looking bruised heading into what will likely be a tough general
election battle with donald trump. trump expected to get specific today, talking about the money he said he raised for veterans on the campaign trail. hallie jackson is at trump tower in manhattan. good morning to you. >> good morning. trump will account for the donations at a news conference today at trump tower. to some, a test of his ability to keep the promises he's made. in the meanwhile, he's lashing out, preemppreemptively, at a pe third-party challenger. this morning, one of his rivals' protesters are making headlines. >> reporter: donald trump in the hot seat once again. this time, after a fundraiser for veterans earlier this year. now, questions about how much money was really raise and had where the cash really went. >> i said, let's do this. we're announcing on tuesday, all of the groups we put up this money and raise td this tremends amount of money. >> reporter: the nominee claiming he raised $6 million
for vets when he skipped a debate in january to hold a charity rally instead. promising to detail the donations today. still a mystery. another mystery, who might be considering a run as an independent challenger. conservative writer bill kristol dropping hints but telling nbc nothing is imminent. over sources particular with the recruiting process says an update could come in the next few days. mitt romney and paul ryan denying any rumors it could be them. >> i don't want to do the independent thing, but i do keep it and it is leverage. >> reporter: most analysts agree, a conservative challenger could peel away enough votes to hand the white house to the democrats this fall. meanwhile, one of the democratic rivals, bernie sanders, seeing a shuffle at his rally overnight. two secret service agents quick to shield the vermont senator
from animal rights protesters who hopped a barricade. other agents can be seen rushing the demonstrators. one using a baton to keep them away. with the crowd cheering, sanders continuing his rally less than a minute after the altercation. >> we don't get intimidated easily. >> and new this morning, our nbc news/surveymonkey online poll is revealing more about the divisions within both parties. registered voters, 38% predict the democrats will still be divided come november. republicans, the number is more than half. >> hallie, thank you very much. let's turn to nicolle wallace. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's start with the tweet from bill kristol, that there could be a third-party candidate, impressive and well-funded and thinking about getting in the race. does this seem realistic? who could it be? >> anything is possible. bill kristol is a smart guy. i don't see this happening, and
i don't see it happening in a manner that weakens trump. that has been the story. we've gathered around this table and talked about that morning after morning. the crummy debate performance didn't weaken trump. the statements about muslims didn't question trump. i question whether someone else getting in would weaken him at all. >> bill kristol wouldn't throw something out for no reason. a lot of people have said, it's not me. >> i'll tell you the kinds of people it could be. there are generals out there. the kinds of people that would be difficult to attack from donald trump. a kind of person with an impeccable resume on military matters. also straglers in the stop trump movement. mitt romney said, i will never vote for donald trump. >> could they get on the ballot?
if the point is not to get on the ballot but be a spoiler, who signs up for that? >> here's the question, we used to talk -- i remember chuck todd said, it's almost too late to get on every ballot. it is now too late. the theory hinges on someone getting in and depriving either hillary clinton or donald trump of getting 270 electoral votes. >> talk about what happens if nobody gets 270 electoral votes. >> it goes to the revered house of representatives. the republican-controlled body. each would have one vote. it's hard to imagine that the congress, elected every two years by the voters, would go against the will of the people. >> let's get off fantasy and conspiracy theory and talk about california. if hillary clinton loses to bernie sanders there, what does it do to the race? >> we talked about how ma ed ab damage sanders is doing by staying in the race. the reality is that hillary
clinton has the nomination essentially locked up. this is zero sum. everything sanders does for him is good for him and bad for clinton. sanders winning california would be damaging to clinton. >> even though she could mathematically get the nomination, but it's damaging for the candidate. >> sanders hasn't won a lot of huge and diverse states. if he bests her there, it's a very -- you limp into your own convention at a time when you're supposed to be gathering strength. >> nicolle, thank you. another major story we're following this morning. people in texas are dealing with a new flooding emergency. days of rain, once again, taking a deadly toll. nbc's gabe gutierrez is in rosenberg, just outside of houston. gabe, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. this is one of the neighborhoods under water this morning, as the river is expected to crest later

>> and this is worse than you expect snd. >> oh, yeah. we didn't think it would hit this far. >> reporter: in rosenberg, residents scrambled to grab what they could. >> i took out my dog before anything else. i can't leave my dog. >> reporter: she wasn't the only one holding on tight. this seven foot alligator found in the flood waters got stuck in a car, azores des residents hol hope that the flooding will end. >> it's frustrating but i have faith to believe we're going to be all right. >> again, the river is expected to crest later today at its highest level in 60 years. parts of texas are expecting more rain in the forecast later this week. matt and savannah? >> gabe, thank you. gabe set it up for you nicely, more rain on the way. >> and a lot of it, which is what they do not want to hear. let's show you what we have going on right now. risk of strong storms today down

believes it is very likely. suggesting his son was suffering mentally from his time at war. >> really believe this was a ptsd thing. >> reporter: he was honorably discharged from active duty in 2014. since then, his father says he has become disillusioned with the federal government. >> he was rambling off about the economy collapsing, you know. and that something was going to happen by monday. that kind of stuff. you know, there were signs. >> reporter: the chaos broke out sunday morning. >> we have an active shooting situation going on here. >> reporter: as he reportedly opened fire with an ar-15 style assault rifle and a handgun. one man, 56-year-old eugene, was killed while getting his car washed. investigators recovered a military-style backpack monday at the gas station.

chappaqua, as her campaign announcer was cancelling an event in new jersey to get to california sooner than expected for a five-day swing there. meanwhile, senator bernie sanders has been in the state almost non-stop, pouring all of his resources into trying to win there. polls show it is shaping up to be a tight race. secretary clinton is leading, but only by two points. 46% to 44%. here's the reality check, secretary clinton is poised to win the nomination, whether or not she wins california. but a loss in the most populous state could leave her bruised heading into what will undoubtedly be a brutal general election battle with donald trump. natalie? >> kristen welker in brooklyn for us, thank you. republican donald trump promised to clear up questions today about money he raised for veterans groups. trump claims he took in $6 million for vets when he skipped that debate back in january to appear at a charity rally instead. he has called a news conference at trump tower to provide

"today"'s sheinelle jones is here with a push to make things clearer. >> good morning. this year alone, americans will waste hundreds of billions of dollars worth of food. not because it went bad or spoiled, but the date stamps are confusing and misleading to consumers. >> reporter: when it comes to wasting food, america leads the way.
>> contrary to popular belief, the dates on food are not telling you the food is bad or it will make you sick. they're really just the manufacturer's best guess for when the product is at its freshest. >> reporter: this year, 90% of foods will end up in the trash once it hits the date on the package, wasting 160 billion pounds and costing the average family of four upwards of $1,500. now, congress is taking a crack at solving the problem. introducing the food date labeling act, to help consumers figure out the use by and sell by system that some argue is subjective and baseless. >> the reality is, the dates are not an exact science. every state has a different law. there's no uniformity or consistency across the country. this just adds to the confusion about these dates. >> reporter: the bill, if passed, will establish a uniform national date labeling system, that indicates whether the food is unsafe to eat and not just past the peek freshness. >> some products are fine for
weeks after the suggested date. archaeologists found honey in egyptian tombs that haven't spoiled. there are several things you can do to see whether the food is bad. assess the taste and smell. if there is mold, get rid of it. with vegetables, if they're wilted, throw them in an ice bath and, most of the time, they'll come back to life. >> reporter: the act, primarily based on recommendations from the natural resources defense council, harvard food law and policy clinic, and a quick fix to a growing problem. >> one of the solutions in the future for this is smart packaging. packages that monitor what's happening with the food. this bill is a great start to reduce waste. it'll help start a conversation around the fact we waste 40% of what we produce. >> if passed, the bill will make it easier for businesses and individuals to donate food to charities, helping fight the war against hunger. guys? >> sheinelle, thanks very much.
you watch the labels sf. >> i do. it would be nice to clarify it. >> the smart packaging is great, too. tell you if it's off. >> it's all right. let's do trending. we have all gotten speeding tickets. how many times have you wanted to fight back? a man in texas did just that, sort of. he was ticketed for exceeding the speed limit. his name is brett sanders. in his mine, he was unfairly fined $250. he decided not to contest the fine but pay it in pennies. 22,000 pennies. he dumped them on the counter, fell all over the floor. he said it felt great to do it. >> oh, that poor woman. >> the court gets the last laugh. he overpaid by $7.81. how many pennies? kidding. 781, right? >> yes. i like carson's immediate reaction. poor lady. she did nothing to deserve that. >> she has to clean up that mess. >> give them the buckets of pennies. >> or rolls so it's easy for her
to realize it is the right amount. >> she didn't give him the speeding ticket. >> well, to some degree, roll the pennies. >> if you roll them, it's a little passive aggressive. at least he was aggressive-aggressive. who online shops a lot? you do like crazy. natalie keeps the whole system up and running. >> i do. >> it's always a risk. you never really know if something is going to fit. ask one customer who ordered jeans from an online retailer. he wanted 32 inches in seam in length. the waist was great, but those are like flippers. they went past his feet. he posted that. the company reached out. it's not clear why this happened. the company hasn't responded to a request for comment. it appears the guy isn't alone. on social media, other customers posting their own picks of really, really long jeans. >> from the same company? >> i don't know.
of course, much better than really short jeans. >> of course, you can wear them as shorts. >> what did you say? oh, they are from the same company. >> they have a history. something is going on there. >> they're losing a fortunate in denim there. >> they were of normal stature? >> 32 inches in seam is very, very normal. >> you get those altered and send them back. >> if you alter them, like you have to get the same jean hem on the bottom. otherwise, it looks bad. >> messy. obviously, we're coming off a three-day weekend. lots of people decide to get married on holiday weekends. the folks at usa today have a problem with that. people who schedule weddings over long periods, they say depending on the holidays, it can be rude. they ranked which holidays are okay and which are not. the holidays okay to schedule your wedding, new year's eve, presidents' day and columbus day. >> ann arbor day?
>> or flag day or something. usa today says there's no good reason to get married over fourth of july weekend. >> yes. >> labor day, thanksgiving, christmas, clearly, memorial day. by the way, rated borderline rude. >> isn't one of the reasons that people do this is because you get a better deal? >> it's because people are off. >> allows people to actually go somewhere. >> we got married on the 23rd of december. we did it because the family was already in town. >> sure. >> a lot of the family was going to be there anyway. >> sometimes you get a better deal if you go on a sunday night as opposed to a saturday night. >> it's hard to give up a holiday weekend. >> pmaybe if you don't want anyone to come, schedule it on the fourth of july. >> that's true. how about this? me lis lissa mccarthy has a wis critics of her "ghostbusters" movie, and the star saying hollywood is sexism against men.

"america's got talent" is variety. >> yeah. it's what i missed most when i left "saturday night live." after i did that show, i really wanted to do a variety show and laugh with the people that make me laugh harder than anything. it's fun. >> you have resumes that crisscross each other, but the way i understand this pairing, it came up because of the 40th anniversary of "snl." lauren michaels had an idea, is that right? >> we had met throughout the years casually, but never worked together. for the 40th launch, the two of us, kind of spearhead the musical and comedy section of the 40th. we had so much fun and loose
dinners and hangs. you kind of instinctively know that you know someone for 20 years. >> after that, did you say to him, hey, or did you say, what about? how did it go after that? >> it was lauren's idea. he said, you should do your variety show with marty. oh, if he would ever be on it, it'd be great. you should do it together. he knew. he's like a comedy match maker. >> he really is. >> he knew that we would be lovable goofballs together. we would love each other. >> the ease has been fantastic. >> you guys know just about everybody in the business. can we just go through some of the guest stars in just the premiere episode? we have larry david, jimmy fallon, tom hanks. who am i missing? >> kate mckinnon. >> miley cyrus. >> you must have a great elevator pitch. you must have the great moment. run into someone in an elevator. >> i have private polaroids and
threaten to expose them. >> old fashioned and smart. >> it's blackmail, and it works. it's in my book. >> people overuse the term "multi-talented," but you are both "multi-talented." >> well, i cook. >> you have more talent than that. we wanted to find out, who was the most kwumulti-talented gues. singing. dancing. whistli whistling. for extra credit -- >> i can only do this. >> extra credit, can you whistle with your fingers in your mouth? >> no. >> no. >> can you? >> no. >> there was a young man who -- >> there was an old gal from gloucester. >> i can do a crow. >> i can do cats mating. >> go.

>> every week. >> every week. >> thrilled to have you together. >> good to see you. >> "maya and marty." was it ever considered, "marty and maya"? >> by my people. >> tonight at 10:00/9:00 central on nbc. what you need to know before you go for a so-called quickie mortgage. first, this is "today" on
we're back at 8:41. important information if you're in the market for a new home. there's a new mortgage taking the industry by storm. "today" financial editor gene ch -- jean chatzky is here with what you need to know. the quickie mortgage, what do we need to know? >> not exactly a new loan, it's a new process. it's largely automated, so it takes you a lot less time to get
the confirmation for the loan. people are doing it mostly online, although the phone is also possible. it takes ten minutes or less. the big players in the market, rocket mortgage, lenda, doing re-fies, and sofi. >> this is a good time to have financing locked in before you shop for a home. >> not only spring, but it's a seller's market. we're low on inventory, and it's making everything a little more competitive. if you can go to a seller and say, hey, i've already got financing, you're in much better shape. >> you said it's not a new mortgage, it's a new process of getting a mortgage. how exactly does that work? >> you go online. create an account. basically, you give it enough personal information about you so that it can reach out and get all your documentation. things like your birth date and your social security number and your bank account numbers. it goes out and pulls all that paperwork. if you've ever gotten a mortgage, you know that getting
all the paperwork, that's what takes the most time. this is where the secret sauce is. you get an initial offer, maybe they say, we'll give you 4% on a 30-year mortgage. then you can play around with it. maybe you want a 15 instead. you can play with the tool and figure out how much it'll cost you. >> there's got to be downsides. i think quickie mortgage, and i think, how quick do you want it to be? >> if you're thinking of the downsides, you don't have necessarily a local person to talk to. you can't walk into the bank and talk to a local person. you'll get a loan officer eventually, but the person may be across the country. the home inspection, the appraisal, those things still have to happen. you still need to close in person. there are some upsides, as well. >> what about putting the financial stuff online, having a third-party look at your social security, stuff like that? >> bank-level security. you don't want to be doing this on a public wi-fi. you do want to be careful. there could be people, you know, looking over your shoulder. it's very nice as far as accuracy is concerned. >> i did the debbie downer side
of things. give the upside. >> as far as accuracy is concerned, a mortgage can be a game of telephone. you send documents in, somebody loses them. everything is there so you don't worry about it. get a real quote in real time. it enables you to close faster which, in a seller's market, is an advantage. >> i was reading about this this morning. i think it's interesting. i have to say, i did think of the recession, the lending problems that went on. even the consumer financial protection bureau tweeted, when it comes to mortgages, take your time, ask questions and know before you owe. >> they did that after rocket mortgage put out a big ad during the super bowl. there was a flurry online. the way to think about this is it is one quote. this quickie mortgage is one quote. you still do your research and shop around. get that financing, but then go out and see what you can get from other lenders. talk to your local bank, local credit union. do a big search, and then lock into the best rate for you. >> jean chatzky, thank you very

reasons. obviously, the little boy is okay. no critical injuries. this gorilla, 17-pound -- 400-pound male who is 17 years old, harambe. the child, according to witnesses, told his mom that he wanted to go swimming. this is what has been reported. some point, the child slips either under or over, and there have been conflicting reports about that, as well. the zoo officials believe he went over something and fell 10 to 12 feet into the mote. harambe heard a splash. two female gorillas were immediately call sboed into thin area. he did not leave. then took the child for ten minutes. people were helpful for ten -- we've been on the show now eight minutes. two or three more minutes longer than what we've been on with you right now, that's how long the child was in there with the gorilla. >> we have video of the enclosu enclosure. >> where they believe the child
slipped through. this is -- there's vegetarian. the bottom line is, right now, despite what people have been saying online, there's a change.org petition, 200,000 people called on the mom to be charged. investigative authorities have not indicated it'll be the case. there's also questions about the cincinnati zoo. when your major clientele are children, making sure there's nothing, even if a parent turns their eye for a minute or two, that a 3-year-old can fit through. zoos around the world -- i worked at the ft. worth zoo for a second. they are held to a strong standard. they have people who come in and investigate. they do a lot of things to make sure these enclosures don't have this problem. there's a lot going on here. the family released a statement. they thanked god for the child's safety. i don't know. what do you think? >> harambe was shot, the gorilla. some people have questioned, well, couldn't they have tranquilized him? >> no. >> the zoo officials have said
they could not tranquilize. it would take time. >> would have agitated him. >> and been more aggressive with the child. >> we have the zoo director defending the decision to shoot marambe. >> we're talking about an animal with one hand that i've seen take a coconut and crunch it. you can't take a risk with a silverback gorilla. the barrier is safe. that same, any of us in this room could climb over bar yourr if we choose. >> they made the call. >> it was the correct call. it's easy for everybody to attack this mom. but nothing had happened like this before. >> right. >> you know, i've misplaced -- my kids have gotten away from me. you turn away. it happens. you try to be an attentive parent. sometimes, things happen. you know, for people to turn on this woman, i think, is -- >> that's what made me sad.
we don't read the comment sections. it's not healthy for many reasons. half the time, people write things they don't mean. but there was a viciousness i saw even in some of the headlines, directed at this mom. we have yet to hear what happened. you guys know, i always say, the fastest thing in the world is a 3-year-old boy or a gazelle. you have boys, as well. >> they have a way of being able to sneak around and hide and play hide and seek. they think they're playing, too. things happen. >> it's heartbreaking. >> as parents, it doesn't take much. you turn to another kid for 15 seconds, turn around and go, where'd they go? the reason this is a terrible story is because of what happened to the beautiful animal. we're happy the kid is okay, but it's heartbreaking. at the same token, dragging the mom through the mud isn't productive. >> doesn't help anybody at all. >> no. we've seen this happen at our plaza. people are there. there's a great star performing.
we can see tons of people holding their phones, video taping it, for the whole -- >> we do it. >> i like to take a few seconds. >> yeah. >> maybe a photo. take a look. adele was performing in verona, italy, sunday night. she calls out a concert goer for filming the entire show. ironically, the moment was caught on camera by someone else. here's what adele had to say. >> i want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me on the videocamera? i'm here in real life. enjoy it in real life. this isn't a dvd. it's a real show, and i'd like you to enjoy my show. >> so she had a tripod set up with a video camera. >> was she bootlegging it? >> obviously, this isn't just somebody taking out their smartphone. >> yeah. >> i think she was absolutely right in calling this person out. >> i'm impressed that she spotted her in a sea of
thousands. adele sees you. >> the fact that the woman had lights up, a tripod and a boom, you know. >> she had one of these over here. >> she had this. >> you have to imagine it had to be elaborate for adele to see it. >> she didn't really have these. >> makes for a funny story. >> she had a steady cam. anyway, we are looking, unfortunately, for steady rain to continue in texas. in fact, we've got the risk of 41 million people seeing some sort of severe weather today. especially into the southern plains. this may be upgraded to a slight risk later today. this is a slow-moving front pushing through. isolated storms. by the afternoon, san angelo, dallas, houston will see it on wednesday. more flash flooding possibility. look at this, thursday through saturday, this slow-moving front, all this moisture coming up. we know how much rain they've already gotten in texas.
