7:06 am
his supporters are now applauding his new white house role. 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 news, a site with often offensive headlines like this 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
7:07 am
office." his wife claims in a 2007 divorce filing he did not want 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 chief of staff, 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
7:08 am
by phone defending his character, flatly denying any 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 >> you were on our set wednesday morning after donald trump won the election. 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
7:09 am
bannon and the whole team, and it has worked and it has been a 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 chang swarm, we're going counter to the establishment. you are the establishment. 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.
7:10 am
wisconsin who was elected through that process. 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 delivery that created that incredible night. >> can we talk about steve 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,
7:11 am
steve bannon will bring to the white house? can you let them know anything 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 the last few months, that's a guy that exhibited none of those 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
7:12 am
if you watched that "60 minutes" 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? role. the chief of staff is generally responsible for the day to day 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,
7:13 am
going to be very involved in decision making. that's the kind of president 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 part of the story this morning. hi, kristen, good morning. >> 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
7:14 am
top democrats today. their goal -- to figure out where the party goes next and 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 always somebody else's fault. >> 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
7:15 am
world there is also an acknowledgement the campaign failed to aggressively reach out 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. >> the president typically holds press conferences after the 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.

7:17 am
the quake this time was stronger than the one in 2001 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 ad the weather's been spectacular. you look at these pictures of 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

8:35 am
shares a collection of brutally honest short stories that can 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 possibly impact wisdom. i don't know what you call a 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
8:36 am
did i used to be a better version of myself. i had this conversation with my 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, >> i just love it. 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
8:37 am
>> this kind of goes to the "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 and people think it is about 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.
8:38 am
available in book stores tomorrow. next, billy bob thornton is bringing back one of his most popular roles. bad santa. that's next. but fir first it was gift certificates. then gift cards... unwrap the cash. ironically elf-themed, this festively-fun gift put a bunch of us into early retirement. old-school gifts can't compete! so on my 400th workaversary, i moved on to greener pastures! see you on the green! okay!
8:39 am
8:40 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 f billy bob thornton is here to 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?
8:41 am
okay. >> billy bob thornton, good 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 air him and just blew him up. >> it's true. 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
8:42 am
little bit more of an actual christmas story. a lot of reason for that is 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 irreverent was the thing? >> i think people wanted an 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
8:43 am
so, yeah, it's definitely the alternative christmas movie and 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 theit one. she's 12 now. bella. and she watches this one called "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
8:44 am
>> i'm going to contemplate 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"
8:45 am
imagine a world where we celebrate thanksgiving like we used to. where instead of rushing to buy

8:47 am
use. guys, good to see you. >> thanks for having us. >> what is it about chestnuts that say the holidays? >> the smell. you go christmas shopping, holiday shopping, you want the smell of roasted chestnuts. >> right after the harvest, thanksgiving comes. >> we've got it two different ways. marcus, you are making kind of a cool soup. >> we have the ingredients. onions, leek, apples, celery root. i also celery root because it is also very fall and wintry. >> how do you prep them? >> i have pre-cooked chestnuts. fantastic. add some fried chestnuts.
8:48 am
