role. critics are growing very concerned about what kind of world he might bring to the west wing. often on stage with his boss, steve bannon now in the spotlight after helping to propel donald trump to the presidency, promoted to chief strategist in a position to shape the future president's policies. ban be, one of trump's first appointments, and already his most controversial. before joining trump's campaign in august, bannon led breitbart news, a offensive headlines like this one calling a conservative columnist a renegade jew. bannon saying this summer he wanted breitbart to be the platform of the alt-right, a conservative extremist movement with ties to white nationalism. the appointment of breitbart drew immediate fire.

7:09 am
it has worked and it has been a great partnership and he really wants everyone to understand out there that he wants to be a president for everyone. >> right. >> no matter your background, your race, your gender, your faith. he wants to do well for every american across the board. >> but to some, you're an odd choice for chief of staff because they've been watching this campaign over the last year or year-and-a-half. they've heard donald trump say we want to bring change to washington, we want to drain the swarm, we're goi you are the establishment. you're the ultimate insider and dealmaker. why are you the right fit for this job? >> well, first of all, it's about an advisory role. it is an operations role. but also, i was elected by the grassroots members of our party across the country. i get elected by the people that are making the phone calls and putting up the yard signs and the people doing the work. i'm a guy from kenosha, wisconsin who was elected
7:10 am
but secondly, i would just tell everyone that the reason we had an electoral landslide in this country is that donald trump was able to bring different pieces of our party together. the reason why he did as well as he did is that he appealed to people like me. he appealed to people in all respects of our party. and so that -- it takes a talent and an ability that president-elect trump had. but it was his message and the delivery that created that >> can we talk about steve bannon? in some ways he is the flip side of the coin here. a lot of people are concerned because they look at breitbart news. as one paper put it, recently accused president obama of recruiting more hating muslim, and i guess people are bondering is this the world view that
7:11 am
can you let them know anything about him that would be contrary to the website he ran? >> sure. and that wasn't his writing. that was some articles in breitbart. it wasn't him. >> okay, but he is the head. the buck stops with him. >> the guy i know is a guy that isn't any of those things. the guy i know is the guy sitting in an office all day yesterday talking about hiring -- talking about -- guy that exhibited none of those qualities. here's a guy who's harvard business school, is he a ten-year naval officer, london school of economics, i believe. he is a guy who is pretty -- he's very, very smart. very temperate. and together we've been able to manage a lot of the decision making in regard to the campaign, along with kellyanne and it's worked very, very well.
7:12 am
interview last night, you saw a president ready to be president for every american so that in 20 years people are going to look back at president trump and say, wow, this guy did every single thing he said and he led this country with honor and dignity. that's the donald trump that people are going to be talking about in 20 years. >> let me just follow it this way, in the west wing will you or steve bannon have more power and influence in shaping donald trump's agenda and policies? >> i think it is a different role. the chief responsible for the day to day operations of the white house. in regard to advising the president, i think if people understand president trump, he likes taking opinions from a lot of different people. he's not a person that just listens to one person and does whatever that one person says. he decides. so in advising the president, i would suspect that me, steve bannon, i think jared kushner, obviously, his son-in-law is
7:13 am
donald trump is going to be. i think you are going to find that in a few months, as people see the agenda roll out in the first 28 days, the first 100 days, that he is going to be a president for all americans and he is going to make you proud. >> reince priebus, again, congratulations. >> you bet. >> talk to you soon. thank you. well, what is next for the democratic party? still reeling from a stunning loss. president obama set to hold a news conference this afternoon. nbc's kristen welker with that part of the story this morning. >> hi, savannah. in addition to that press conference, president obama will also call members of the democratic national committee today as hillary clinton reaches out to house democrats to discuss next steps in what went wrong. the outreach comes on the heels of clinton placing part of the blame for her loss squarely on the shoulders of fbi director james comey. >> reporter: democrats looking for the way forward with president obama and hillary clinton poised to reach out to top democrats today.
7:14 am

"scrappy little nobody." you say even now i worry every job i get is going to be my last. >> me, too. >> just in an alley, chain smoking, talking about my glory days. i can't wait. >> you tell little tales about hollywood here and there. one of my favorites had to do with when you were just getting known for "up in the air." then are you at the red carpet and peoplehi style. they just make you buy really expensive shoes. >> it is one of those funnily things it is the great irony once you can afford the shoes, somebody will lend them to you which is lovely. but at that point, the movie wasn't out yet and nobody really knew who i was. and my stylist was like, well, you still have to be wearing the expensive shoes. otherwise the world will end. i don't know. and kind of talked me into buying these shoes that were
8:38 am
like, i think that you think my life has completely changed already? and it hasn't. i'm going to need to wait on that. but i got talked into it. >> are you still paying off the shoes? i bet you they weren't comfortable either. >> no, not at all. why would they be? >> back to your picture. i notice it is on the back of the book. we'll put up your picture first -- or not. i'm really building up to something here. the first thing i thought was, wow, that hair, next picture, please. i just want to show you, that's me. and now my little girl who looks just like you. look at that! >> oh, my god. may we all turn out as well as you, anna kendrick. >> thank you so much. that was so cute. >> "scrappy little nobody"
8:39 am
tomorrow. next, billy bob thornton is bringing back one of his most popular roles. bad santa. that's next. that's next. but fir at ikea, we believe that everything you need should be within reach. in an affordable dream kitchen that works as hard as you do.
8:40 am
at ikea, we believe that everything you need
8:41 am
in an affordable dream kitchen that works as hard as you do. get 15% back at the ikea kitchen event. we are back at 8:41. "bad santa" has been a holiday movie mainstay for more than a decade now. now willie and his badmouth are back for the sequel. tell us all about it. but first a little preview. >> that's great. that's great. i don't know. >> grand theft auto 5. >> i don't care. what can i get you? >> a stuffed animal. >> what?
8:42 am
morning. why did you make us wait so long for a sequel? it took 13 years. >> you know, in a lot of ways it helped waiting that long because you got to see the kid at 21 as opposed to the next year where it is the same people doing the same stuff. >> he has not changed very much. >> it is unbelievable, isn't it? >> he was adorable then and he looks exactly like what you would think. >> it is like they took the 8-year-old, put an air hose in him and just blew him up >> it's true. you wait 13 years. your character willie, i think it is fair to say, has not had a season of personal growth. he has not evolved. he's as bad as ever. >> yeah. he hasn't changed a lot. i think the one thing though in this second movie is that you do see more of willie's heart. i mean it is a little more emotional than first one, has a
8:43 am
because you get to see where he came from. >> we see his mom. kathy bates plays mom. >> it is not pretty. >> apple doesn't fall far. >> i'm telling you. >> when you think about this movie and why it resonated so much with people and why they loved it, it's kind of a raunchy movie. it is a little bit wrong. but in the right way. is that what you think? this sort of being kind of ir irreverent was the thin alternative to the more sentimental movies. a lot of people get really grumppy at christmas. some people don't have fun with their family. over at our house we have a traditional christmas and we love the whole season. but some people really wanted to not just have to watch "miracle on 34th street" or whatever. and also i think people live vicariously through people like willie. sometimes it is like all the things that they'd like to say in the grocery store line, willie just does it.
8:44 am
alternative christmas movie and the thing became iconic in its time. and so it was our duty to at least get close to as good as the first one. so hopefully we did. >> the profile you did for "gq." you did a very cute story about you and your little daughter and how you love my little pony. i love that. >> oh, yeah. i watch it every day with her. and this is the more grown-up version. it is not like the little kid one. she's 12 now. bella. and she watches this one called "equestria girls." they're girls, not horses. we watch that one quite a bait. some of the stories are kind of heavy. underlying theme. you know? it's heavy sometimes. so she actually learns a lot from it. >> you're giving me a whole new perspective on my little pony. >> absolutely. my little pony is the on the water front of children's shows.
8:45 am
