time. today the president-elect will get back to filling his cabinet considering candidates for key top posts. treasury, homeland security and veterans affairs all unfilled. secretary of state an inner frustrating in the trump camp over rudy giuliani and one of his harshest former critics mitt romney. kellyanne conway tweeting this, some trump loyalists warn against romney as secretary of state. general jim mattis, favored contender for secretary of defense. >> he is the real deal. >> reporter: with the flurry of cabinet moves, trump is spending less time than his predecessor on those daily intelligence briefings. the president-elect has had just two, a u.s. official tells abc news. vice president-elect mike pence said to have several more. they caution he has plenty of time to get up to speed. donald trump also faces a growing number of potential congressional investigations and abc news learned democrats have
requests to review the trump transition's use of taxpayers money and conflict of interest. >> matt, there are warring camps in trump world, giuliani, romney, who do you think gets the nod or could it perhaps go to a third party? >> well, i think this whole romney for secretary of state thing has been a rather bizarre anyway -- this is a guy as you remember that called dal and now he's interviewing for secretary of state in this. i don't think anybody knows. i think as you're right the power centers are pushing the establishment is i think pushing for mitt romney or somebody like mitt romney and then sort of loyalists to donald trump are pushing for rudy giuliani or somebody else they believe is loyal in this. i think the longer this goes on the more problematic it gets for donald trump. >> meanwhile, hillary clinton's lead in the popular vote keeps growing. it's at around 2 million votes
recount in several key states. do you think this effort is going to go anywhere? >> well, this continues to be such an historic thing. the idea that somebody wins a popular vote by plus 2 million and loses the electoral college overwhelmingly. as we watched football yesterday jill stein is throwing a flag, a challenge flag in this but she's not even the main participant in this game. as of right now there hasn't been real evidence but who knows what could get revealed over the next few weeks. >> telling that the clinton campaign has not this. matt dowd, thank you very much as always for your analysis and analogies. paula, over to you. >> thank you very much. well, the doors have opened for one of the biggest shopping days of the year, black friday, millions already running as you can see taking advantage of the huge sales across the country. abc's rebecca jarvis joins us from a target in chicago with all of the details this morning. hi, rebecca. >> reporter: hey, good morning, paula. they opened their doors last night at 6:00 p.m.

actually don't forget a kind of blended family mother too. you know, she had the three girls, mike brady had the three boys and they kind of came together as one perfect family and she was the perfect mom. she was somebody who every kid kind of wished they had a little bit of at home. >> she did say one thing in an interview with barbara walters in 2012 and said she wished carol brady had a job. why do you think that was so important to her so long ago. >> florence was a very, very modern woman. she was very ambitious. e i mean she herself had carved out a career that spanned well beyond brady brey. she was as you said a broadway performer beforehand. tremendous singing talent and she made sure she stayed relevant. she had that drive. such a drive that she was at the finale of "dancing with the stars" on monday night. everybody saw her in the audience so it was really unthinkable that light could go out so suddenly. she was very, very driven. >> can you briefly tell us why she had such a profound impact on hollywood?
>> i think she was such a class act. you know, she personified a sort of grace and dignity and loveliness that you don't necessarily get all that often these days. she was somebody who everybody, you know, wanted to be a little bit like and if not like then be able to call mom. i think maureen mccormick, you know, the bond that they still continued to share all those years later really exemplifies that. >> she was the stabilizing force for so many of us. christmas tree up without a hitch. the best decorations to avoid a disaster. and before you run out and shop becky worley has the secret to saving this holiday. there she is at walmart headquarters. >> with her big board that's a little bigger than our big board. >> we'll hear more coming up. af ?mmm fresh? in that washer with unstopables in-wash scent boosters by downy.

critics are calling it a masterpiece and our robin roberts sat down with the stars and director, take a look. >> what you looking at me like that for? >> reporter: once in a while a movie comes along that sweeps everyone off their feet. >> stop putting your head down in my house. you know my rule. it's all love and all pride in this house. >> reporter: this year, "moonlight" is a film critics are calling perfect and a flat out masterpiece. >> at some point you have to decide for yourself to be. you can't let nobody make that decision for you. >> reporter: told in three parts, it follows the story of shyrone, struggling with his sexual identity while growing up in a tough neighborhood in liberty city, florida, and with a mother fighting a drug addiction. >> what happened? huh? what happened, shyrone? why you didn't come home like you're supposed to? >> reporter: director barry jenkins adapted the movie from a play written byty rell mccrainie.
who also grew up in the same city as the main character with a mother who also struggled with drugs. naomie harris plays paula. shyrone's mom. mahershala ali takes a break from "house of cards" to play juan, a drug dealer who shyrone looks up to. challenging roles for both actors who took on this film mindful of the stereotypes they wanted to defy. >> i had some reservations because i just think there are enough stereotypes of black women in particular in film and in television and i just wanted to make it my mission in terms of the choices i made with my career to portray positive images of black women in particular and i kind of drew the line at playing a crack addict but when i spoke to barry, he explained how personal the story was to him and, you know, how it would be basically playing his mum and i realized he had a vested interest in ensuring this character wasn't a
humanity and complexity. >> what is the conversation that you all want people to have when they leave the theater after seeing this, barry? >> you know, for me i feel like people keep saying we don't see characters like shyrone represent us very often. before seeing it some people assume they can't relate to a character like that or to a person like that. i think after seeing this film they realize as we've been saying he's a human being. you know, so maybe, you know, you're having a bad day. that person is ahaving a bad day. talk to one empathize. >> i think so often in life, you know, we focus on the differences between us and here's a film that encourages us to see that actually we're more similar than we are dissimilar and that's really beautiful and i think it's a healing antidote we need this time more than ever. >> it's about empathy and understanding. just dove tail on what they were saying and we're just proud of this film. i feel like we made a good film and we just want opportunities
other people, we don't get to tell these stories enough and to be part of an art film, something of this caliber and this type of offering is just a real gift for me, for all of us, but in terms of just the story itself it's about empathy. >> and i can't emphasize strongly enough how moving that movie is. "moonlight" is in theaters right now and i encourage you to go. for robin's full interview head to next here on "gma" this morning, "hamilton"'s lin-manuel miranda on bringing "moana" to the big
