7:06 am
not have been more professional or more gracious in making sure we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running. and one thing you realize quickly in this job is that the presidency and vice presidency is bigger than any of us. >> reporter: today's meeting a new chapter in an ak kro moan use feud that dates back to president obama's first term when trump championed the birther conspiracy theory. >> he may not have been born in this country. >> reporter: the president roasted trump soon after when the claims were knocked down. >> that's because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like did we fake the moon landing. >> reporter: in the final days before the election the president worked feverishly to keep trump out of the white house. >> if somebody starts tweeting at 3:00 in the morning because snl made fun of you, then you

7:09 am
movement set to delegitimize president obama. might he apologize to the president today at the white house? would you like to see that? >> i think that's all past us, matt. the fact is, and president said a lot of things, i was at that correspondence dinner, said a lot of things about donald trump at that time that clearly was attempted to delegitimize him. that's politics though. i think what these two men recognize is that now this is about governing and leading the nation and the world. and they have a lot more important things to talk about than things perceived in the past. >> it was all just politics when donald trump was making comments about the president? >> everything is in the context of politic, matt. it didn't mean he didn't believe those things or wasn't concerned but you see the difference between when two people are in combat in politics versus when the people have spoken. and tuesday night the people spoke. they elected donald trump president of the united states. and so now it's time for both donald and the president to move around turn to a new chapter.
7:10 am
>> reince priebus was here yesterday and said that the donald trump he knows, the one behind closed doors is so vastly different than the donald trump we have seen from that rally stage. do you agree with that and do you think that's -- we're about to see some new side of donald trump? >> well, first off, i've been friends with him for 14 years. so i would say there's a lot of things about him that the public has not yet seen. but i don't think that's unusual for people in public life. i think you hear all the time, whether it was about al gore, i used to hear that about the vice president, you hear that about president obama and i've been able to have time with him privately, too. people have different sides. what will happen during a presidency, i believe, is that you get much more of an opportunity to see those sides. >> we all the protests last night. it's just a reminder that half the country feel very scared and afraid and upset. what do you think president-elect trump's tone toward them should be? what's his message? what's some outreach he should do? >> he started that outreach on tuesday night.
7:11 am
it was not a combative speech at all, it wasn't a divisive speech. it was a unified speech and he recognized those folks on tuesday night. talked about the people who didn't support him. said, i am committed to being president for all americans. and that's what he has to do and that's what he did do on tuesday. >> paul ryan said donald trump has a mandate even though he didn't win the popular vote, he obviously has the white house, the house, and the senate. do republicans have a mandate? >> sure, absolutely. when you control both houses of congress and the white house you don't have a mandate you have a huge responsibility because now the republican party is in charge of the federal government and we have an obligation to get things done. >> let me ask you about your personal future either inside or outside a trump inauguration, the bridgegate trial ended last week. a couple of your associates convicted on all counts. do you think that trial will cast a long shadow on you if you would like a role in the administration? >> i think the long shot was cast well before that.
7:12 am
what happened last week with the verdict is they confirmed what i knew and did in january of 2014, which was back then i said after 24 hours, it's my view that three people are responsible for what happened there. those three people, after three years of investigation, matt, and the trial, the same three people i fired in january '14 were the three people who were held responsible by the u.s. attorney's office and that jury. >> what role do you want in a trump administration? what have you talked about? >> we have not talked about anything. it's true, the president-elect was -- was absolutely adamant about not discussing the transition before he was elected. >> the reports are he didn't want to jinx it, is that true? >> that was part of it and he wanted to remain to us canned on what he needed to do which was winning. so he said to me back in may when he gave me the job, he said you focus on getting this ready for me and we'll talk on election night. so we spoke on election night but we didn't speak about me, we spoke about the transition. >> would you want to be chief of staff?
7:13 am
would you want to be attorney general? >> that is what is called a pregnant pause. >> you really don't think i'm answering any of these question, do you? you know me better than that. the answer is, i am not committed to doing anything in a new administration or not. you know, the bottom line is that i have a job to do to help get the administration ready. if there's some role for me that i want to do and that the president-elect wants me to do, you know, we've known each other for 14 years, we'll talk about it. >> staffer? >> maybe it's host of the "today" show, matt, who knows. you've been around here a long time. we'll go over the contract later. >> that's one job the president doesn't appoint. >> i understand that but maybe we can work something out. i'm a very nice guy, savannah. we would have a lot of fun sitting next to each other. >> we'll do a screening interview later. trump's adult children have been a hunl part of this campaign. could you see him appointing one of his adult children either to a cabinet post or senior position within the administration or does he think,
7:14 am
no, that's nepotism, not going there? >> i don't know. i haven't spoken to the president-elect about that but my sense is that donald's children who are huge parts of running the business intend to run the business. they will always have an influence with their dad. he will always turn to them for advice and counsel as all of us do when our chin get oldren get. their intent from what i heard from them is they're focusing on running the business because the guy who did run the business has a new job. >> donald trump praised hillary clinton in his speech but in the previous weeks he said he was going to lock her up and appoint a prosecutor, special prosecutor. hs he drochd that? >> listen, i haven't spoken to him about that. what i tell you is they had a gracious conversation with each other on tuesday night. the secretary was gracious to donald, to the president-elect, and the president-elect has been incredibly fras incredibly gracious to her. politics are over now. people have spoken. >> people wanted her to be locked up, those are his constituents. >> the people -- but the people get to speak through their vote and they voted for donald trump
7:15 am
to be the president of the united states. and it's now his job bring the country together. >> governor chris christie, do you have an alarm clock? >> yes, i do. >> just saying. it's a part of this job. >> no problem. >> you're going to love halloween here. you're going love that. >> listen, you mean i can look stranger, matt? that will be good. looking forward to it. >> appreciate it. let's got toer this side of the aisle now, what does the transition to a trump white house mean for the democrat who find themselves in their weakest position in washington in eight years. nbc's kristen welker has that part of the story. kristen, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you. well, despite the bitter battle between clinton and trump, democrats and lawmakers more broadly agree that they should work together to help the country come together. but that won't be easy given the history of partisan ranker here in washington. this morning democrats coming to terms with their new reality,

file this under "maybe." first, congressmen need to take action. while republicans could have trouble getting the 60 votes to get it to the president's desk, a vote to repeal did make it to president obama earlier this year under a special budget procedure that required only a simple majority. he, of course, vetoed the repeal. if it makes it to a president trump, the result would likely be a different story. also on his agenda -- reshaping the supreme court. >> the supreme court, it's what it is all about. >> reporter: file this under "highly likely." with republicans controlling congress, trump's all but assured a more conservative supreme court pick. >> the american people have spoken and president trump will send us a nominee, i assume, early next year. >> reporter: trump's released his list of picks to fill the seat left vacant after the death of justice antonin scalia. among the notable names -- senator mike lee of utah who did not vote for the party's nominee. and what about some of candidate trump's more extreme plans?

the white house this morning. >> hallie jackson at the white house this morning, thank you. let's bring in nicolle wallace and steve kornacki who at this point need no introducti introduction. nicolle, you've been there. what are these meetings about? the white house is this scene, this is the peaceful transfer of power. there is tons of symbolism. but it is also very personal. >> it is very personal. and there is a lot of talk about when you turn the page, a hard-fought campaign is over. as governor christie has talked about, the night before donald trump's election, president obama was one of the most powerful spokesmen in making the case against trump's candidacy. so everyone is committed to turning the page because the business of governing is so much more grave than the business of campaigning. but these are human beings. they're not robots. >> what nicolle is saying, is you can't unring a bell. some of the things that have been said during the course of this campaign are going to stick around. >> it's interesting, what's happened since the election was called has been so strikingly
7:44 am
different than the election itself. i think that probably is encouraging to everybody because we thought such an unprecedented campaign may be the aftermath would be unprecedented. so far it is going the way it is supposed to go. i think things are going to get interesting when you look at how democrats react. obviously democrats do not like donald trump. at the same time, this is a guy who's taken some positions on issues where he actually could find some democratic help on capitol hill. >> that's interesting. it is a good segue to my question for nicolle. one of the big story lines was how is he remaking the republican party, not just in tone, but also the orthodoxy of the republican party and the policy. so how do you think that all plays out in terms of what he tries to do in 100 days? for example, trade agreements. >> he owes the republican party nothing. he won without the republican establishment behind him. and, frankly, with sort of the republican folks that make their way on to tv shows -- >> but guess who's waiting for him in washington? the republican establishment.
7:45 am
>> he really has an opportunity to craft an agenda and pick his partners. if trade is a place where he finds more enthusiastic support among democrats, he has an opportunity to work with democrats. he put out a list of supreme court justices. there will be issues whether there are natural alliances with the conservative movement in and out of the government. but he is in such a unique position in that he owes this victory to no one other than his small sort of pirate ship of a campaign and his base of support around the country. >> if these protests continue to build, should donald trump say nothing and let the emotion play itself out or should he speak again to the american people? >> i think at some point it is not directly addressing the protests that's his responsibility. but i think the message that he delivered after this election tonally is the message you want the winner in the election to deliver. he was gracious about his opponent. he talked about uniting the country. as long as he continues to deliver a message like that, i think that's what we expect of a president-elect in this period. >> i went to buy something
7:46 am
yesterday and i took my money out of my pocket. look what i found? i found a little piece of paper with the predictions from election eve of when this was going to be called. >> you know what's going about him? he never says "i told you so." >> chuck is not here to defend himself. steve predicted 11:20 at night. >> that was pacific time. >> i forget what i said. >> 1:00 a.m. >> i was closer. >> but if i had asked you, and who is going to win? >> clearly, trump. >> i would not have predicted this outcome. but it is -- you know, i think there is a lot of hand-wringing. i dropped my son off at school yesterday morning. a lot of moms came up to me figuring out how to talk to their kids. i think it is just important to remember that we've sort of been through extraordinary events before. i am a recount survivor. i am a mccain-palin survivor. did i win? did i win the "today" show pool?

8:14 am
president. >> what was the day like today? >> if i had to sum it up well it would be going through the five stages of grief. >> the big take away from this election for me is also how divided our country is. >> although our country is in a divided state at the moment we can still find ways to look past this and to still encourage each other. >> reporter: for the students it's a lesson in politics witnessing a combative campaign but then at the end gracious speeches from both sides. >> i think the message has been very much you're worthwhile, you are important, your voice matters. and one day you will get to run for president of the united states. >> reporter: to lift their spirits the girls created a video which they'll send to hillary clinton. >> we are stronger together! stronger than ever! thank you, secretary clinton. >> reporter: it's hard to know how most americans will choose to move forward. in new york hundreds of post-its line a subway wall offering messages of encouragement while
8:15 am
seth meyers tried to offer something positive. >> in general, i am hopeful for president trump because hope is always the best possible path to take. >> reporter: a country torn apart, hoping there's enough thread to eventually sew things back together. for today, joe fryer, nbc news, los angeles. >> dr. jennifer hartseen is an adolescent and child psychologist. it's one thing a lot of parents have said, not just after election day and the result but all through this campaign is how do i talk to my kids about this? and for kids, you know, world events loom so large when they're focused in on them. do you have any tips on how to talk about it, whether you're happy with the result or not? >> right, i think that's the thing. you can be happy, you can be sad, our kids are absorbing all of this. the first thing is keeping it simple. your younger children do not need to know the same information as your older children and keep it on point and direct. you want to really -- don't put your information on them. let them form their own opinions
8:16 am
because a lot of these kids absorb everything around them and then they're just repeating it but they don't always understand it. validate their feelings. really let them know that you understand. and then everybody needs to start to work towards a place of acceptance and kind of awareness and then decide what they want to do about it. be it a good thing or bad thing for you. kind of move towards the acceptance. >> i think one of the hard things as parents and i've got three children, so we spend a lot of time in my house talking about compromise. and when they hear what's going on in this election or just did, there doesn't seem to be a lot of area of compromise. it seems to be one end or the other. split down the middle. >> right. you know, sometimes -- and i think obama said it great with all of his sports references in his speech yesterday, there's a winner and a loser and that's not compromise. and this is one of those moment where there is a winner and unfortunately there's a loser and everybody can choose which side they're on. we have to accept that that's what is and work in that spectrum. >> a lot of focus are on those who are disappointed. also there's a lesson if you
8:17 am
were a supporter of president-elect trump because it also shows how to be gracious in victory. >> absolutely. this is a really wonderful lesson in sportsman like conduct. how do we say this is great and i'm so excited but respect that someone else loss and honor that for them. >> you have to remember, kids are sponges. if you don't think they heard everything, they heard everything. >> they did. they did. we've got to respect that and hear what they have to say. >> what about specific fears? you know, there are some kids who might have been hearing, for example, about immigration or deportation or they hear about terrorism, they hear about racism. you know, there's just all kinds of accusations that have flown back and forth. and if you've got older kids, how do you address these issues? >> sure. i've seen it in my practice. yesterday there were a lot of teens afraid of what's going to happen to me and my friends. i think it's really being able to sit with them, talk about it, remind them that you're going to work really hard to protect them, remind them the government is not just one person. and that kind of the aim is to really make america unified and positive and a great place.
8:18 am
and that's what we're going the all hope for. >> keep it in perspective. good lessons for everybody, all ages. thank you. let's go over to al and get a check of the weather. >> how about the weekend? take a deep breath and reset and just kind of enjoy. here's your weather for it. cooler weather through the great lakes. sunshine through the gulf coast. unseasonably mild through the plains. from northern california into the pacific northwest. look for wet weather. looking ahead towards saturday. got a cooldown in the northeast new england. great lakes looking gorgeous. sunshine. even down to the gulf, unseasonably warm. beautiful weather in the southwest into southern california. sunday, sunday, a big football day. we've got lots of sunshine in the northeast. some showers along the mid atlantic coast. heavy rain moves into the pacific northwest and the sunny skies continue again down through the southwest and into all right. we're seeing a lot of sunshine over the golden gate bridge. some high clouds above. 63 currently in san francisco and into san jose, hazy skies and 59 degrees right now.

[ laughter ]. >> but we digress. >> but they didn't let go of me and it was their idea and i am terribly flattered.
8:20 am
>> i'll get to that in a second but i want to talk to you about what's happening at the white house today. we've just been through a lot as a nation with this election. yet i think, shouldn't we all take comfort in what's going to happen at the white house today? >> it is part of the majesty of the american system is that a loser, and in fact barack obama is a loser because his candidate didn't win. he's going out of office but he is welcoming in a gracious way the unexpected winner, donald trump, who has an agenda completely different than this and they will work out a way they can have a transition that is peaceful and we hope it will be very efficient for the country. >> you were watching, i know, the speech that hillary clinton gave yesterday. in addition to watching her and listening to what she was saying, i was looking at that room and it looked like a political wake. and in some ways it just showed the disappointment of about half the people in this country, particularly when it comes to the attempt to elect a woman as president of the united states. >> well, actually i think in the end the gender piece of it was not as important as other
8:21 am
issues. the country was saying, we want big change. and they didn't see her as an agent of change. we want washington to get it. we're not happy with what's going on out here. i know a lot of those people are stuck, the working class in the middle part of america. but yet when i saw those young people weeping and i thought to myself, i hope they stay on the hunt. i hope that they say that political and public service is very important to me. we went through this a lot in 1968 when richard nixon beat hubert humphrey and a lot of people were giving up on the system. but you've got to stay in it if you're going to change it. donald trump stayed the course and ran a campaign that no one thought could be successful but he saw his way through it. >> after 50 years in the business you can still be surprised, can't you? >> i can be surprised every time. people were tired of hearing me saying this but my mantra during the campaign is the ufo theory, the unforeseen is going to weocr
8:22 am
and it occurred and it occurred by a magnitude of 10,000. >> let's get to this great honor, you're donating your memorabilia and papers to the university of iowa. why? >> it was their idea. they came to me. i was reluctant. do i have enough important stuff. they were persistent. they've got a wonderful world class library. all digitalized. the library of congress, connected. i started going through my material. and my god, i was astonished by how much i had and how important it was. >> can we talk about some of the things and actually as i walked over to say hi to you this morning i walked right past this picture here which is you and nancy reagan. do you know what year that was? >> it was -- it was about three years into their -- so about 1980 -- 19 81 or '82. we had had a spat. i had said some things about the president that she really didn't like. i had known them from california days covering them. the word came back don't go near
8:23 am
nancy, you don't want to get around her for three months. then they called me and said you're going to be invited to a state dinner, you have to think about what you're going to say to her in the receiving line. don't worry about the president. all of the way up to her, he was saying, which you figured it out. i got to her and she looked at me with that steely look and i said to her, nancy, back to square one. at that moment the picture was taken and she said, back to square one. that photograph arrived the next difficult. this is how good she was. with the inscription, "tom, back to square one." and we went on from there. >> talk about what's on the table here. i'm a huge baseball fan. that is an incredible item. >> when the giants were playing the as in the world series we went a crew out toimaggio. we found him in his barber shop. he said this is for tom brokaw. i had never met him at that point. we said, do you think he would like a baseball from me? >> is this a trick question? >> what a wonderful inscription from joe dimaggio.
8:24 am
there are not very many of those around. >> 1989, tom, you were there as the berlin wall came down. and you've got mementos of that as well. >> well, the highlight of my career in so many ways. and as they started to knock off pieces of the berlin wall, ed lee, a computer experts, bring them to me. so i brought back a bunch of them and we will see some of them here and encase them as you can see and handed them out to my friends and every time i look at them i think about the symbolic of the end of the communism. >> this here is from the myrrh are federal building in oklahoma city. >> john hanson, assistant fire commission, the spokesman there, brought that to me because i lived in oklahoma city for so many days. and as a product of the great plains i identified with what they were going through and wrote an essay about it. this is a notebook that i was interviewing bill gates, i got his name circled there, at a time, it was the beginning of the age that we're now moving through. i did a number of interviews with him including an hour
8:25 am
documentary. >> do you remember when you stopped using notebooks? >> you know, i still use them. i did even on election night. i wrote down things i wanted to make sure i have. i trusted the digital piece of it but at the same time there's something that connects me to the ideas that up writing about. >> great, by the way, great picture of you and nelson mandela. 50 years at nbc. i have been a fan for all of them. >> well, we've had friendships as well. that's the other part of it. the payoff for me is not what i got to do. it's all the people who helped me through it, quite honestly, matt. you and i have the privilege of being out in front of the camera. we couldn't do it with all of these folks that are here supporting us every day. >> yeah. >> and i'm going to make an effort for all of them to get compensated as well as you do.

we're back with much more right after your local news. i'm ...==i a very good morning to you. it is 8:26. i'm laura garcia-cannon. a man is under arrest, following what police say was a deadly family fight. police in livermore say that 34-year-old tyler haskell stabbed his mother and grandmother with a kitchen knife at about 7:00 last night at their home. haskell's grandmother died. his mother is expected to survive. when officers arrived at the scene, they say haskell had left on foot. officers caught up to him about a mile away. livermore police tell our sharon kastuda this suspect is mentally ill. they also say this is livermore's first homicide of the year. let's check the morning commute now with mike. how are we looking? >> we're looking all right. we had a tougher drive in the east bay and parts of the south bay. now we're sorting out your typical expected pattern for
8:27 am
this thursday. i'm hoping things will lighten up a little bit earlier, because i think a lot of folks are taking tomorrow off for school. the south bay does show the slowing up through san jose, but eases up coming up towards the rest of silicon valley, so that may be a sign of slower traffic through the area. we have a tough drive off the castro valley y. still 26 minutes from 238 down to the dumbarton bridge. some more slowing south of there, heading down towards mally. another local news update coming up in about half an hour. hope to see you then. have a good thursday morning.
8:28 am
8:29 am
8:30 am
we're back now, 8:30 on a thursday morning, it is the 10th day of november, 2016. waef's g we've got a really big crowd out on the plaza. everybody enjoying some chillier weather. >> guess what's coming? >> thanksgiving? >> well, that. >> christmas? >> the christmas tree.
8:31 am
>> oh, the tree! yeah, the tree! >> that's right. they're out in upstate new york right now cutting it down. we'll tell you the heartwarming story behind this year's rockefeller center tree. >> we always get a little bonded to the tree. it is our friend. also, we are getting ready for thanksgiving. we've been doing side dishes all week. i am very excited because potatoes are here. finally. today is potato day. the two michaels sharing some awesome recipes. then acclaimed director pet peter burg on norring our nation's hero. and i sat down with legendary carl reiner. >> you've got the forecast. you bet. right now we are looking at a gorgeous day in the east. little on the chilly side. gusty winds around the great lakes. near record temperatures in the plains. looking ahead toward friday, we have, again, a beautiful day from the great lakes, right on
8:32 am
into the plain states. pacific northwest, little on the wet side, windy and cooler as that front moves into the northeast. gorgeous weather along the gulf coast into the and we're seeing hazy sunshine, 59 degrees in san jose. average high is 66 this time of year, but today expecting close to 80 around downtown san jose. low 80s south of downtown. upper 70s and low 80s around the tri-valley and mid-70s across the bay over near oakland. tomorrow more, more clouds, a little bit of cooling, and the chance of a few light showers friday night into saturday. partly cloudy by mid-day saturday, dry sunday, and a chance of rain and much cooler temperatures by tuesday and wednesday next week. >> don't forget, get that weather any time you need it. go to the weather channel on cable. >> mr. roker, thank you very much. director peter burg has brought some harrowing stories to the big screen, talking about
8:33 am
"lone survivor" and "deepwater horizon." you can catch his latest project on the small screen just in time for veterans day. new history channel series called "the war fighters." peter, great to see you. talk to me about the idea behind this. because this is different from what you've done. >> well, i have done shows in the military space and i am a big fan and a supporter of our military. this show gave us an opportunity to go very deep in to the personal lives and into the tactical lives of the men and women of our special operations. >> i think we've all seen a story unfold, a true story, and we've all thought, what was behind that? you know, where did these people come from? where do they go after this happened to them? i love the fact as we are looking on the screen right now, we're hearing from the actual people. >> i'm very proud of the fact that 90 veterans actually worked on the show. they were part of making the show. one of the i think really unique aspects of war fighters is that
8:34 am
you get these men who generally are the most tight-lipped, private guys you will ever meet in your life, telling really intimate stories about their love for each other and how they operated. >> it is so real because often times when hollywood does these stories -- i don't mean to paint with a broad brush -- you get only the bravado side of things. here you get the fact of what they felt like when they were going through it and what it was like after the trauma. >> absolutely. this episode you are seeing here is about a young soldier named mark guzzo who tragically committed suicide after he got out of serving in the s.e.a.l.s. he was an extraordinary man. you go et to hear interviews with his brothers from the military community, but also his parents who both served in the military for a combined 60 years. it's gut-wrenching and really takes you deeply into an issue which today, right after what we've experienced in the last couple of days, i think is so
8:35 am
important that we really can pay our respects and learn a little bit more -- a lot more about these extraordinary men. >> i'm so glad you brought that up because the timing is important because veterans day obviously. but after an election like this that divides the nation in half, everyone can agree on the support for these kinds of people. >> certainly the one thing that clinton and trump both agreed on was that we need to do more for our veterans. i think that to do more we've got to understand more deeply who these men are, what they go through, what their lives are like when they get out. if people really do care -- everybody likes to say "thank you for your service" and "i respect you so much." i feel like if we really care, it is our responsibility to get to know these men a little more deeply so we can understand that. >> talking about the small screen here. can we go back to the big screen for a second ? >> do whatever you want, matt. >> you have a new prelim comie
8:36 am
i -- film coming up. >> it starts right before the boston marathon bombing and ends right after the second bomber was caught. it is really a look at how this extraordinary community came together in the face of what is becoming this new horrific reality that we live in. it's also -- if i may say without getting in trouble, a positive look at law enforcement and a show that really reminds us why cops can be so -- such great, incredible people. it shows the very best of this community responding to a really horrific experience. >> the emotions are still so raw on that subject, especially up in boston. does that put extra pressure on you when you make a movie like that? >> i mean it -- i was joke something i should go do a love story in france and i end up making movies like "patriots's day" or "lone survivor." but to be welcomed into that community and meet the police and private citizens and the fbi agents and the medical personnel
8:37 am
that responded, much like we saw here 9/11 and we've seen many places since then. but to see how honorable and patriotic and just what great men and women responded to boston like responded to tampa or san bernardino. it was an honor. so the pressure was a bit more intense than maybe doing a super hero film, but it was a privilege to tell that story. >> you and mark wahlberg are a good team on movies like this. peter, always good to see you. what a pleasure. thank you very much. you can catch the veterans day marathon of "the war fighters" starting tomorrow night on the history channel. up next, al's going to sit down with a living legend -- carl reiner. but first, this is "today" on nbc. thank you.

8:41 am
like "the jerk." and the 2000-year-old man. >> people actually hit themselves on the face? >> oh, boy, wow! >> that hurts though. >> boy, you bet it does. >> reporter: reiner's ad lib routine with mel brooks. >> mel is the funniest human being in the world. he's connected to the truth, to the absolute truth. you tell the absolute truth and you get a laugh. >> is it true that almost every night you and he sit here -- >> he sits right there. >> he sits there. >> right there. >> here are the two funniest guys on the planet, you're both now in your 90s. >> well, if you stop, then they put you away. >> what's your fountain of youth? >> having something to do. i can't wait to get up in the morning. you do these leg exercises. i'm not kidding, they absolutely work. very few people 94 can put their legs like that. >> carl, i'm just curious. there's like a couple of bags. are those feathers? >> you guessed.
8:42 am
>> where they from? >> they're chicken feathers. they come from those pillows. and mel sits there. one day he goes, what's that? it's a feather sticking. and i put them here. here's another one. >> here -- take it. >> you've written about relationships. you've written about friendships. what makes a good relationship? >> my wife said it best. marry someone who can stand you. isn't that perfect? she had a way of putting things. my son, robby, when he did "harry and sally" and she's the one that delivered the line, "i'll have what she's having." >> i'll have what she's having. >> is comedy genetic? >> it can be genetic. that's a good beginning. but it is also environmentally. if you laugh at things, you find things to laugh at in the worse situations sometimes you find things to laugh at. >> oh, look at that. that's a goodie. that's worth it. >> that's worth it.
8:43 am
>> there is so much amazing in that piece. but i think in doing the yoga pose on the bed. >> at 94! >> he's very flexible and limber. >> that's the secret to good comedy. >> i don't know what might happen. >> that's cool. up next, michael white, michael lamonaco together in the kitchen, how to make potatoes the real star of your than

good day. we're following events in washington this afternoon. president-elect donald trump at the white house meeting face-to-face with president obama. here's a picture we just got from that meeting, a symbolic moments in the process of handing overpower from one president to another. i'm joined by nbc's hallie jackson and kristen welker. kristen, first to you. do we know the substance of tht meeting? >> reporter: we are getting some headlines. president obama sees this as a moment to set the tone for a smooth transition. he told trump today, we will do everything we can to help you succeed. i am told he wanted to answer questions, wanted to talk about some of the challenges between campaigning versus governing. the mood here among staffers is bleak. the president's message to them, it's time to move forward. >> and hallie, the president-elect has 70 days. what sorts of decisions have to
9:46 am
be made? >> mostly about his administration, the cabinet and what happens over the next six weeks prior to the inaugural. president-elect trump commented that this meeting lasted longer than scheduled, which is did. they talked about foreign and domestic policy and the president-elect says he's looking forward to more meetings with president obama. >> chuck todd is joining us now. do you think this meeting was as awkward as anticipated? >> yes. it is awkward. i am curious to see if we learn and did donald trump at least, you know, offer any sort of remorse on sort of some of the criticism, vice versa, was there any of that, i don't know. but that will be a curiosity. >> here is the tape now just a few minutes ago from the oval office. >> i just had an opportunity to have a conversation with president-elect trump. it was wide-ranging. we talked about some of the
9:47 am
organizational issues in setting up the white house. we talked about foreign policy, we talked about domestic policy and, as i said last night, my number one priority in the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our president-elect is successful. and i have been very encouraged by the, i think interests, in president-elect trump's wanting to work with my team around many of the issues that this great country faces and i believe that it is important for all of us, regardless of party and regardless of political preferences to now come together, work together to deal with the many challenges that we
9:48 am
face. and in the meantime, michelle has had a chance to greet the incoming first lady and we had an excellent conversation with her as well and we want to make sure that they feel welcome as they prepare to make this transition. and most of all, i want to emphasize to you, mr. president-elect, that we now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed, then the country succeeds. please. >> well, thank you very much, president obama. this was a meeting that was going to last for maybe 10 or 15 minutes and we were just going to get to know each other. we had never met each other. i have great respect. the meeting lasted for almost an hour and a half and it could have, as far as i'm concerned,
9:49 am
it could have gone for a lot longer. we really -- we discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties. i very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel. he explained some of the difficulties, some of the high-flying assets and some of the really great things that have been achieved. so, mr. president, it was a great honor being with you and i look forward to being with you many, many more times in the future. >> thank you, sir. thank you, everybody. we are not going to be taking any questions. thank you, guys. thank you. >> it's always the last one z come on, guys. come on. let's go. >> thank you. appreciate it.
9:50 am
>> thank you, guys. >> don't know if you caught that, but president obama offering a few tips to president-elect trump about the press corps at the end of these photo ops but that occurred a few minutes ago and on tape the first face-to-face meeting as donald trump had pointed out that the two had never met, talking about policy issues and about a transition. let's go back now to nbc's chuck todd who is watching with us. chuck, the incoming president will be able to undo with a stroke of a pen some of the executive actions of president obama. do you think some of the discussion is don't do that or consider this before you do that? >> i think there was some of that and also the chief of staff denis mcdonough was showing around the organizational head of the trump campaign and will be involved in some form or another. but look, president obama on day one signed a slew of executive orders that undid some things
9:51 am
that he could do that president bush put in and there will be that on president trump's first day. that's almost like a standard procedure from president to president, particularly when we change parties. but i'm guessing that a lot of this had to do with, look, the trump folks weren't preparing for this either, as you recall, lester. they were -- they didn't think they were going to be in this position so they are having to get up to speed pretty quickly on how to do a transition and in the post- 9/11 world, the presidential transition is more difficult and more important than ever, particularly seamlessness you need when it comes to this battle on dealing with domestic and foreign terrorism. >> back to kristen welker, you know the president has told his staff to get on board and move on with this transition. what does it mean practically? do trump folks start coming to the white house? are there face-to-face meetings? what are the mechanics of a
9:52 am
transition? >> reporter: that's right. president-elect will start to receive intelligence briefings. they will be meeting with staffers here on a regular basis from now through the inauguration. you heard president obama talk about the fact that former president george w. bush really set the tone for a smooth transition and he wants to essentially do exactly what his predecessor did to make sure that this transition is seamless. i thought it was striking to hear donald trump talk about the importance of getting counsel from president obama, moving forward. remember, this is someone's who has never served in office before so president obama determined to make sure that this goes smoothly. lester? >> and chuck, very quickly, we've talked about things are personal between the two of them. no signs certainly in that photo op of personal, hard feelings. >> no. and president obama, this is a very genuine thing for him on the transition. because it was an extraordinarily smooth transition between george bush and barack obama. on a policy front, remember,
9:53 am
barack obama's election was a ful ful full-fledge repudiation. president obama doesn't want to be accused of undermining the incoming administration so i think this is genuine. >> chuck, thank you very much. we know president-elect trump will have meetings with republican leadership on capitol hill later today. we'll have full coverage, of course, on "nbc nightly news." for now, i'm lester holt in new york. good day, everyone.
