slurs and personal threats. >> i am so saddened to hear that. and i say stop it. if it helps, i will say this -- i'll say it right to the camera. stop it. >> reporter: this weekend asked if he thought his rhetoric had gone too far on the campaign, president-elect trump said, no, i won. this morning he's also pledging not to receive the $400,000 a year presidential salary and not to take any long vacations during his time in the white house. in his words, there's matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you. another big person until pick, steve bannon, will serve as donald trump's chief strategist and senior counselor. it is a pick that immediately caught some controversy. nbc's hallie jackson in washington with more on that. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hey there, savannah, good morning to you. steve bannon, the former head of breitbart news, has been a controversial figure in the president-elect's orbit from the moment he came on board late in the campaign. his supporters are now
7:06 am
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 site with often 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. "the racist fascist extreme white is footsteps from the oval
7:07 am
to send his children to school with jewish students. a claim he denies. politically he's a flame thrower. >> you may own these buildings but they're occupied by a permanent political class that is out for your destruction. >> reporter: house speaker, paul ryan, brushing off any issues with bannon. >> i've never met the guy. i trust donald's judgment. >> reporter: but ryan's congratulatory tweet praising reince priebus, the next administration's c o never mentioned the chief strategist. >> are you ready to elect donald trump president of the united states? his long time relationship with ryan, two men representing two factions, now under one west wing. the antidefamation league has come out against bannon's appointment. a couple of his friends and associates spoke with nbc news by phone defending his
7:08 am
charges of anti-semitism, acknowledging breitbart's provocative but calling bannon a champion of diverse voices. they describe him as an intense and focused leader. >> hallie jackson in washington, thank you. reince priebus, chairman of the republican national committee, will join the trump administration as chief of staff. good morning, congratulations. >> hey, thank you. very nice of you to have me on. >> you were on our set wednesday morning after donald trump won you said you hadn't talked to trump about a position in his administration. you hadn't even thought about it. so this came together rather quickly. did you have any reservations about accepting this position? >> no, not at all. i mean other than making sure that it was good with my wife and the kids and getting that piece of my life straight. we've had a great partnership and i've learned to get to know president-elect trump and steve bannon and the whole team, and
7:09 am
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 going counter to the ta 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 incredible night. >> 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 steve bannon will bring to the
7:11 am
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 -- in the last few months, t 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 of staff is generally 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 going to be very involved in decision making.
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, kristen, good >> 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
who its leader will be with the president leaving the white house. it will likely also be a rallying cry, not to give up on key party policies like obamacare and immigration reform. what did go wrong? in a phone call with donors on saturday, clinton said she's heartbroken, blaming fbi director james comey for stopping her momentum after he revived the issue of her e-mails in the 11th hour of the race. >> i just can't believe it is always somebody else's >> reporter: but on "meet the press", kelly anne conway blasted clinton for the finger pointing. >> sometimes you have to reflect and figure out what went wrong. we saw the polls before the announcement on october 28th. >> reporter: rudy giuliani claimed obamacare played a role. >> we put up front in all of donald trump's speeches for the last two or three weeks not the fbi but obamacare. >> reporter: but within clinton world there is also an
7:15 am
to white working class voters in places like michigan, ohio, and pennsylvania. a source familiar with former president bill clinton tells nbc news he was pushing for more outreach to those communities. other realization -- the obama coalition just didn't turn out in the same force without president obama on the ballot. >> even though we didn't get those turned out, it is not time to give up. it is time to keep fighting. >> the presidentyp election. today he is talk about the transition of power and how the country can move forward even as thousands take to the streets to protest the election of president-elect trump. also this morning, strong aftershocks are rattling buildings and a lot of nerves in new zealand where a powerful earthquake hit overnight. nbc's janice mackey-crayer is in christ church. >> reporter: good morning, matt.

7:17 am
but it was also deeper. the physical damage doesn't appear as dramatic but nerves are seriously rattled here and there is, of course, concern that the death toll could rise as rescue teams begin to clear the rubble. >> janice, thank you very much. let's turn to al with a first check of the weather. the supermoon? >> this is really cool. the video and pictures just amazing. as you look -- not just in this country but all around the world. the weather's been spectacular. you look the supermoon and you just have to be in awe. look at it just balancing on top of the arch there in st. louis. and all over the world we've got some gorgeous video and pictures. you can see. you beauty of this, the orbit around the earth of the moon is not exact will i round. it is more elliptical, more egg-shaped. now the supermoon, this is the

8:04 am
president he'll be. >> you know, i'll conduct myself in a very good manner but depends on what the situation is. sometimes you have to be rougher. >> reporter: refusing to say he'll stray from the fiery language he often used on the trail. >> sometimes you need a certain rhetoric to get people motivated. i don't want to be just a little nice monotone character. >> can you be >> reporter: as for his signature campaign promises, trump's pledging to deport millions of undocumented immigrants beginning with criminals. >> what we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, we have a lot of these people. probably 2 million, could even be 3 million. we're getting them out of our country or we're going to incarcerate. but we're getting them out of our country. they are here illegally. >> reporter: the president-elect also talked about what would

8:07 am
that's terrible. because i'm going to bring this country together. >> reporter: during a tweet last week, trump had at first said that these demonstrators were professional protesters. then hours later said that he was glad that they had passion for our great country. more protests are expected throughout this week. matt and savannah? >> gabe gutierrez, thank you so much. coming up next -- meghan markle, prince harry's girlfriend,

8:15 am
a long distance relationship and both have busy schedules. but some folks in just the whiter are wondering about the possibility of another royal wedding. some people are pointing out that she is older than harry and she is divorced. but guys, this is 2016. not the 16th century. surely she would bring a breath of fresh air to the royal family. you know meghan, she is a really good girl. >> she's darling and i see you are just marrying them off already, let them date and enjoy one another. >> thank you. let's get to some other stories that are actually "trending" today. >> this is a doozy. do you get a good night's sleep? and if the answer is no, it turns out it could be because of your partner. snoring, kicking, tossing and turning. >> she can't help it. >> i know, right?
8:16 am
offering a simple solution but it is controversial. don't sleep with your partner. in a new study, 29% of people blame their significant other for keeping them awake. experts say a lack of sleep increases risk of depression, heart attack, stroke. they're also suggesting sleeping apart as a way to get some sleep and boost your health. >> i have a friend who does that. they sleep in separate beds and they come back together in the morning and they have a great relationship. >> they don't feel like roommates? >> no. they just sleep separately. >> okay. now i understand. >> you telling me they spoon? >> i mean it is a big deal to share your space with somebody who snores. can we talk about lindsey vonn for a second? whatever you say about her, she is one tough cookie. training last week, she crashed very hard.
8:17 am
online. that is a break. if you can't take that, you might want to turn away from this. she also shared a photo. it is a little graphic. those are the stitches after the surgery she. to repair that broken arm. she said she was in incredible pain but she joke. she's going to need a lot of cocoa butter to get rid of that scar. she says she doesn't understand why this keeps happening to her. well, maybe because you ski 80 that might be the reason. she is a fighter though. she will never give up. she says she'll be back at it soon. >> i believe her. never bet against lindsey vonn. >> amazing. >> our best to her. all right, tamron.

taking us inside his diary filled with encounters with celebrities. of course, his beloved dog. it is called "superficial." andy, good morning. so this book picks up where the last one left off. >> the week after. >> 2014 to 2016. give me two words to describe those two years of your life? >> funny and very dramatic. >> yeah? >> yeah. >> let's start with some of the things you write. when you write these in your diary >> -- do you realize that people are going to eventually read these things? >> you know what? i had a little bit of a sleepless night last night i was like, oh, man, did i go too far? i was in such a groove from writing the first book that i said i'm going to write this, put everything in it. then when i edit it, i'm going to take stuff out. did you think i didn't take enough out? >> let's just be honest. there are some things you write in your diary that will get you off some credit card lists. >> that's probably true. >> and you go ahead and put them
8:22 am
you know what? i feel like i want to be transparent and people are expecting this to be real. and it is. >> let me talk about real. it is real but it is also personal. at one point in the book you talk about feeling lonely and about wanting more out of life. you write this, "i know there's something deeper for me in my future. i need there to be." can you remind me of the period of your life you were going through that created that thought? >> well, i think it was a moment in my life -- we all have loneliness and a lot. that was a moment that i was having. i am the least introspective person typically. >> are you really? >> but the course of writing this diary actually for three years has made me think about things in a totally different way. >> you don't just say there has to be something deeper in me for my life without a hint as to what it might be. >> i think it is opening myself up to love and a relationship and maybe a kid. i think i'm closer to that spot than i ever was.
8:23 am
feelings about wanting to be a parent. >> yes. >> do you feel you need to be in a relationship, a lasting relationship, to take that leap? >> i don't. yeah. i don't. i feel like i can just do it. >> when the book ends -- >> yes. >> -- at the point the book ended, you were from a relationship. >> that's true. >> but i believe that ended -- no, i mean the diary entry ended six months ago. >> yes. >> i'm not breaking news here. i'm not breaking news here. so the relationship is still ongoing? >> yeah. ever this year because i'm sitting there writing it memorial day. i was looking at this guy and i started to get emotionally exhausted reporting on my life kind of. i said i have to go live it. i got to go do this. there is this great guy here around i'm going to -- yeah. >> you write about your mom and dad a lot and something your mom said in this book caught my attention. she comments on people on tv and she said this to you -- i don't care for matt's facial hair.
8:24 am
saw you today because i'm going to have it hear it yet again on thanksgiving morning. you are doing the macy's parade. >> i thought you meant matt damon? >> what is on his face. every november. i have to explain the no shaving thing. >> i love your mom. no third installment? you're not going to do another diary book? >> you know what? right now, i don't think so. this is funny. i reall names and i want people to love it as much as i do. but i don't know if i'll do another. >> but just because you aren't doing another book or may not do another book you are still writing in your diary. >> i'm not. i'm not. >> you're not. >> i'm tired, dude. >> i was going to ask you what would you write in your diary about your experience today? >> i would say i tried to cross my legs like matt because you are the best at crossing your legs on tv. >> well if there's something to be known for, that's it.
8:25 am
a little more than i expected with the bracelets. i don't know what's happening there. i would say it was pretty good. good moment with hode. i would say i didn't tell tamron about the inappropriate dream i had about her. >> you told me. >> i did and it's in the book. >> okay, great. well, congratulations. again, the book is -- but you aren't -- "superficial." more adventures from the andy cohen diary. you can catch "watch what happens live" on sunday ts 11:00, 10:00 central on our sister network, bravo.

8:34 am
>> sammy g., this bus is just like my mother's home. we've got plastic we just have to put some on the couch and it would be just like home. >> al, thank you so much. anna kendrick is a woman of so many talents. she was nominated for an oscar for her role in "up in the air" but probably most recognized as becca from the "pitch perfect" franchise. now she adds a new title to her resume. author. in her first look called "scrappy little nobody," anna
8:35 am
have you laughing outloud. i can vouch for that. >> thank you for having me. y'all can't get rid of me. >> we love you. and now you are an author but as i understand it, not a memoirist. >> i don't know. that word sounds so pretentious, doesn't it? like if you like live the storied life. but i do feel a little silly calling it a memoir as though i've experienced so much and can possibly impact wisdom. i don't know what you call book of embarrassing and slightly incriminating stories. >> you call it "scrappy little nobody." i actually love that title. let's discuss it. >> it is one of those titles that i knew that some people might take it as me trying to be like, little old me? that's disingenuous. it was about this conversation i had with my brother. do you ever just have that feeling am i getting lazy? did i used to be a better
8:36 am
brother. i was like i think i was more capable when i was this scrappy little nobody. he's like you're still scrappy, you just get more e-mails now. then i found this photo of me when i was like 3 years old looking really feisty and really angry. i cannot imagine about what. it just kind of made me feel happy to know that like that drive that you have at any point in your life you can access that no matter -- oh, yeah. there she is. >> i jusve she's adorable. we'll get back to that picture in a moment. you started -- people might know you from "up in the air" or "pitch perfect." you started on broadway as a young girl. but i love what you write. you say i get embarrassed about being a child actor probably because i spent a lot of time around child actor when i was one and they're crazy. >> it's funny, like my knee-jerk reaction was to go, yeah, i'm one of those crazy childhood actors. proves my point exactly.
8:37 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 people think 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
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, i recognize 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.
8:40 am
8:41 am
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. billy bob 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? okay.
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. 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 little bit more of an actual
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 irreverent was the thing? >> i think people wan a 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
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. "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
that. billy bob, so good to see you. thank you so much. "bad santa 2" is in theaters soon, november 23rd. coming up next, another holiday favorite. two unique ways to enjoy chestnuts. but first, this is "today"
8:46 am

9:13 am
warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions,
