is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. before we get into politics can we take a look outside? have you seen the crowd out there? >> rewind. >> exactly. we are going back to the 90s in the i love the 90s concert. >> we'll throw it back big time. but first our top story. >> violent protests outside a trump rally in california where nearly 20 people were arrested. this as trump's opponent ted cruz responds to the harsh words from john boehner. we'll begin our coverage this morning with peter alexander. good morning. >> good morning, this was donald trump's first campaign rally in california and a huge crowd of antitrump demonstrators were there to greet him. it was an ugly night producing
the rally back in march. this time fights striking out outside between trump's opponents and supporters. last thursday hundreds of anti-trump protestors in california spilling out into the streets, blocking traffic and attacking police cars. knbc capturing this trump supporter bandaged and talking to medical personnel. police arrived in riot gear. 20 people arrested. donald trump cruising into the golden state with 172 delegates and the last stop on the road to the republican nomination. >> no state in america has suffered worse from open borders than the state of california. it's impact on jobs, wages, security, schools, hospitals, has been devastated. i love california. june 7th. >> scores of protestors with many demonstrators spilling out
traffic and attacking police cars. >> for ted cruz the devil is in the details with former speaker of the house john boehner giving cruz hell. >> lucifer in the flesh. i have never worked with a more miserable son of a [ bleep ] in my life. >> he allowed his inner trump to come out. when john boehner calls me lucifer, he's not directing that at me. he's directing that at you. when he says that i'm the work guy he's ever worked with, he's never worked with me. >> cruz and carly fiorina crossing the state. now do or die for the duo. now trump's team is feeling alive collecting new congressional endorsements and reading cruz his last rights. >> last tuesday was the nail in the coffin. >> and with indiana likely to go down to the pusser trump is
>> i tell you, he could play for me. >> comparing him to president true man. >> with what he did with dropping the bomb and having the guts to drop the bomb in 1944 saved millions of american lives and here's a man that would do the same thing. >> back at trump tower in new york the nypd responded to reports of an envelope containing white powder nailed to trump's campaign office. it was opened by a staff member overnight. police determined that the powder was not a threat. matt and savannah. >> peter, thanks. >> let's bring in chuck todd. nbc's political director and moderator of meet the press. there's no secret there's not a lot of love lost between john boehner and ted cruz but in a certain way does this help ted cruz? he makes this argument that it's the establishment that doesn't like him?
cruz six months ago. this could have helped ted cruz if there's no such thing as donald trump. this hurts ted cruz now. it's why the stop trump movement couldn't get people to rally around ted cruz. there is 100%, nearly 100% conviction among republicans that donald trump would not be a good republican nominee but there's no consensus that somehow ted cruz would be a better alternative and what you hear john boehner say is essentially what you hear behind the scenes here in washington with a lot of republicans. as much as they fear trump, they think the alternative in cruz is worse. this is why cruz is stuck where he's at right now. >> what you're saying is the prospect for a united republican party in this general election season are extremely dim. >> it's very dim. if the choices are trump and cruz it's not going to be a party that's going to be able to unite with itself and that's why
out -- and i'm convinced now, the stop trump movement totally lost all of it's steam when paul ryan said there's no way. don't expect me to be your savior at the convention. don't expect me to be somehow encouraging people to put me on the ballot and i think that's what we're staring at here and that's what the republican party is staring at. one more point, matt, john boehner is not speaker of the house because of ted cruz. don't forget that and john boehner hasn't forgotten that. >> let's talk about indiana. it's supposed to be the alamo for the stop trump movement. does it still hold that potential? >> it doesn't because at this point trump can lose indiana and still get to the magic number. it's a little harder but the good news for trump is if he wins indiana, wins it by a point, what does ted cruz do from here? what is his rational after this? cruz put it all on the line.
trying this running mate game. tried the alliance with kasich. if none of this works, where does he go? >> thank you. be sure to watch "meet the press" on sunday. the guest is ted cruz. >> convenient. sentenced the american to 10 years in prison on espionage charges. his sentencing comes weeks after university of virginia student was sentenced to 15 year others of hard labor for allegedly trying to steal a propaganda poster from a hotel. >> swroe joe biden is at the vatican this morning. he is leading the moon shot

showed up at the tv station carrying a flash drive that he wanted the station to air. a man that identified him as edward breezy told our baltimore affiliate the suspect was his son alex. a station security guard kept him disstrakt tracted alerting employees to evacuate. >> he said i don't want to hurt anyone. i don't want to hurt you. i just want my message heard. >> in the parking lot he had his car on fire. as he walked out of the station s.w.a.t. team officers were waiting guns drawn. they ordered him on the ground but when he refused they opened fire. police stayed back as a robot moved in to remove the suspect's vest but it turns out the vest wasn't made of explosives. >> those devices were actually chocolate can day bars wrapped in aluminum foil with wiring connecting each of them.
>> officers cautiously moved in. the suspect taking to a waiting armored vehicle. photos on facebook give a glimpse into his life. his dad saying his son is not a threat and a recent break up is to blame. >> it looks like he has just had a mental break down. >> he is also saying his son said a few weeks agatha he had had a revelation from god or from jesus that the world was going to come to some sort of a terrible event on june 3rd and he was trying to get the word out with the flash drive. >> thank you. the fbi arrested three more people in connection with the san bernardino shooting in september. prosecutors say three people related to the shooter were involved in a marriage scheme to allow one of them to remain in the united states fraudulently. investigators uncovered the sham marriage during their

they all met for the first time in thursday in indianapolis including his half brother that spoke with nbc news. >> how was it to see everybody? >> pretty good. made me feel better. >> jackson's lawyer admitted an estate as large and complicated as prince's is not easily divided. >> everything was everywhere. i have a sense that he intended it this way so he could share with all of his siblings. >> is this going to be tough? >> well not from our end. >> jackson says it has been years since he was in contact with his brother. he saw paisley park for the first time this week. >> i knew he built it. he built it with his own hands. so i just wanted to see it. >> as the family negotiates, the sheriff's office worries the intense public scrutiny could jeopardize the investigation. a judge granted a request to seal a search warrant that
but the sheriff's department did release a list of calls for service at paisley park. police were requested for suspicious activity, alarms and fires. last year in august and then in september the reason was listed as medical with no further details. >> so the mystery remains. she was lucky enough to catch prince in atlanta for his final performance. >> as he left the stage, the backdrop behind him was a younger photo of himself and he turned around and he saluted that photo to his younger self-and as he left he put his fist in the air and it was very triumphant. >> a public memorial is scheduled in los angeles on may 6th. the mayor says it's going to be quite a party.

was shot by one of the officers. katy perry's legal battle with california nun over the purchase of their content and nearly filed court documents and a vatican decree was lost in translation. >> it's not often worlds collide between pop stars and the vatican. especially not over real estate but that's exactly what is happening in los angeles. two nuns battle it out in court to determine if katy perry has a right to own their former convent. take it as an article of faith. real estate can be an unholy mess. who owns the right to sell the 22,000 square foot mansion that once housed the blessed virgin mary convent. none of the nuns live on the property but they still believe the right to sell is theirs and two of them struck a deal with the local developer to buy the property for $15.5 million in june of last year. >> i got very swept away by the

we think the other person should apologize. they think we should apologize. it's not going to happen. be the one to take the initiative. >> when you think about forgiveness people think i'm giving that gift to someone else but in a way it's a gift to yourself. >> it is absolutely a gift to yourself. so bitterness and guilt cause your stress. cause you have to unhealthy habits. not only that but when we have positive relationships we actually live longer so it's a gift for yourself. >> so you really need to fully forgive someone to get on that path to healing. >> forgiveness is a process. it's not all or nothing. so the more you forgive the more benefits you're going to get. >> so it's not forgive and forget right? >> we often confuse forgiveness with forgetting. it's not the same thing. >> there's a difference between forgiving someone and reconciling with them. you could forgive someone and still think that's not a healthy relationship. i shouldn't go back to that. >> absolutely. forgiving is getting rid of the
you can forgive and get rid of that anger but still decide not to get back into that relationship. >> back to our one small thing idea. you have a good catch phrase in terms of deciding if you want to forgive something and fill in the blank is better than perfect. >> yeah. we think people should be perfect and they're not. what's better than perfect for you? laugher. maybe family gatherings so family is better than perfect. >> if you're going this up or whatever. >> it negates everything that you said before. so take accountability for what you did so you can move on. >> thank you so much. >> if you want more on friends
