7:10 am
neo-nazi group, that they feel free to criticize trump while also praising the president-elect for, as he says, being good for the movement. in response to the conference in washington, a trump transition spokesman says, president-elect trump has continued to denounce racism of any kind and he was elected because he will be a leader for every american. to think otherwise is a complete misrepresentation of the movement that united americans from all backgrounds. >> we say no to >> we don't want a white state! >> reporter: throughout husband campaign trump has repeatedly denounced his support of racist groups like the kkk. >> i totally disavow the ku klux klan. i totally disavow david duke. >> i said stop it. if it -- if it helps. i will say it -- i'll say it right to the camera. stop it. >> simply saying "stop it" is not enough.

law center which has counted more than 700 reports of hate crimes nationally, like offensive graffiti and racial slurs since election night. a spike it says occurred after president-elect trump won the white house. his top advisors facing more questions now about the president-elect's response. >> he's addressed it many times. he's told people to cut it out. he said that on "60 minutes" in front of 32 million people. >> reporter: one of tr controversial chief strategist steve bannon who ran the controversial conservative breitbart saying he intend to make it the platform for the alt-right. cohen concerned about the tone that sets for the president-elect's administration. >> he said he wanted to bind the wounds of division, yet in bannon he's appointed someone who's fanned the flames of division. >> but steve bannon in a recent interview with the "wall street journal" says he has zero tolerance for racist or antisemitic overtones of the
7:12 am
let's bring in nicolle wallace. good to see you. >> morning. >> we'll talk more about that white nationalist situation in a second. but let's start with the meeting held in new york yesterday. donald trump inviting media executives and journalists. some of the people in that room i think felt they were about to have some kind of a fresh start. instead, it turned very confrontational with donald trump calling some in the room liars. one person destricribed it as a "blanking firing squad." is this simply sending a message? >> so donald trump has some legitimate concerns with the media. one is that all of us, myself included, relied on polls that turned out to be flat wrong. so there was a message to be delivered i think that not only his supporters but that even the media could have heard openly and acknowledged that we all relied on polls that turned out not to be true. we did miss some of his support and we did miss some of his supporters. that said, launching a hot war
7:13 am
inaugurated really deprives you as a politician -- he's not just a candidate, he's the leader of this country. this is biting your nose to spite your face. >> he released a video setting out the agenda for his first 100 days or so. lots of presidents have chosen to bypass the media and go through their own channels. what did you make of the videotape, in particular what was in it and what wasn't in it. announced their runs for the presidency in a similar video. as a tactic be with it is a good one. it is a smart one. but again, there will come a point where you want to speak not just to your supporters who are cheered by its efforts to bypass the media. but when you want to speak to the viewers of programs like this. and this again is going to deprive him of access to a lot of americans that he's going to want to reach. >> in terms of speaking to americans, we just saw hallie's report on that gathering of white nationalists in washington
7:14 am
that looks so much like a heil lit her salute. what does president-elect trump need to say about that right now to stop that in its tracks? >> we can call it the alt-right and white nationalism. it is white supremacy and there is one answer. it is not only to say they're not with me, it is to denounce it. and in the same way that pressure built on candidate obama to give a speech about race when the conversation in this country pressure is building on donald trump to address the subject of race and the blurred lines between what is plainly white supremacy and his base of support. and if he doesn't, the responsibility will now be on him, if we see some sort of uptick in racial intolerance. this is not really a concern among adults but if you see this kinds of speech spreading to schools, this is squarely on his
7:15 am

8:20 am
sirius xm channel 108. all month long our speegser is size "no save today" has been helping to raise awareness about men's health issues. this morning, it is prostate cancer. according to the american cancer society, 1 in 7 men will get prostate cancer. just last month actor ben stiller revealed that he was diagnosed two years ago and treated successful. he joins us now along with his surgeon, dr. edward schafer, of northwestern university's good morning to both of you. >> i'm doing great. i was really fortunate that my course of treatment was basically an operation and that was it. >> your status today in terms of cancer is -- >> is. yeah. cancer-free as of today. anybody who's had cancer, you know you just have to keep on checking on it. but i'm really fortunate. >> i mention statistics a second ago, ben. i would imagine when someone
8:21 am
cancer, statistics don't matter. you feel like the only one who's been told that. >> yeah. i mean it is surreal. it is not something that i was really thinking about. it wasn't on my radar at all. and if it wasn't for this test that we're going to talk about, i don't know if i would have had as easy a course of treatment or the prognosis that i did have. >> were you 48 years old when no symptoms. >> there was cancer on my father's side but not prostate cancer specifically. >> your primary care physician, not dr. schafer, had been administering a psa test for what? about two years? >> yeah. he brought up the test to me and explained what it it was. he said it is just basically a test to see. i guess when the first one came in it was a little high. he said i just want to keep giving you this test every few
8:22 am
that is your best case argument for the psa test, and yet we all know that it's controversial. why? >> it's controversial because prostate cancer is a common cancer, 1 in 7 men will have it but not everybody who gets prostate cancer will die from it. so we have to really better identify those who have a lethal or aggressive cancer from throws that do not. >> okay. so what would be the downside to at least testing? >> well, in my mind there's not a lot of downside for a patient where they stand. but some would argue that if the test is elevated it may lead to unnecessary biopsies or additional tests which can cause anxiety to the patient. >> when you finally came to the decision to treat this, you opted for removal of the prostate. >> yes. >> there are other options. why did you fall on that option? >> because that's what my doctors recommended. >> i'm listening to my doctor. >> i am not a doctor.
8:23 am
told me what he thought. i talked to a number of doctors before i settled on ted and i didn't settle, by the way. >> thanks for that, ben. >> the thing is, it is a whole new world and you have to educate yourself. for me it was learning what the options were. he told me about what he thought the best course of treatment would be for the tumor that i had and so i opted for the operation. >> we hear about this o tell you on a street or when you're at a cocktail party with that guy is i'm not doing that because there's all kinds of side effects. im impotence, incontinence. >> there could be side effects. when a man is confronted with cancer it is important to understand what is the best treatment for them. men can have difficulty with their urination and with their sexual function after treatment for prostate cancer. it is not just isolated to
8:24 am
better job recommending active treatment for men versus just watching their cancers. >> in general terms, may i ask you if you've had to deal with any of the side effects? >> yeah. but i'm doing good. all good. >> yeah? okay. >> read between the thumbs there. >> i settled for the right doctor. no. i mean it's a real thing though. those are all -- when you're confronted with the question of, hey, do you want to live or do you want to make sure that your sex life is the best it can be? of the cancer and then see what happens and luckily everything's cool. >> we did a survey with dr. oz as part of this month of men's health. 59% of men we surveyed say they've not discussed the risks and benefits of screening for prostate cancer with their doctor. 54% said they don't know what a psa test even is. what would you say about that? >> that's amazing stat. it is really upsetting to me as a physician and this is what ben and i were really trying to do
8:25 am
i think the best and most important step for an individual man is to really discuss whether or not they should get testing for prostate cancer with their doctor. it is a personal decision. >> you waited a couple years before you came out and told our friend, howard, about this. >> yep. >> so clearly you must have a message for guys out there watching, not only in the month of november when we all get scruffy but every month of the year. >> yeah. i mean for me, it's please talk to your doctor about this, be every guy should go get tested after the age of 40, 45, especially if you have a family history. the test itself is not harmful. it is what can happen after in terms of overtreatment, those questions. but those are all things can you discuss with your doctor. if i hadn't taken this test i wouldn't have known. i don't know when i would have known until it had probably become something that was not going to have the outcome in terms of the treatment that it did have. >> happy you're okay.
8:26 am
