7:03 am
supporters here in green bay tonight. heading into this critical week, trump is furiously dialing up his rhetoric suggesting a conspiracy is undermining his chances for victory. facing a growing deficit in the polls donald trump is intensifying efforts to fuel doubts about the legitimacy of the elect. >> one big fix. it's one big ugly lie. >> reporter: trump expanding argument that the election is rigged by the dishonest and distorted media, also at many polling places. that new claim challenging the fairness of the voting process. but it also contradicts one of trump's top surrogates. >> i don't expect the electoral process to be rigged, meaning the election, but if it is we'll contest it. >> reporter: mike pence tried to down play the claim. >> we'll accept the results. >> reporter: and paul ryan

7:07 am
let everybody see. >> reporter: clinton talks about cracking down on wall street. >> we still have to crack down on the big banks. >> reporter: as a highly paid speaker clinton appears to have told the bankers the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry. in the e-mails released not authcated by clinton or nbc news, she also said new banking regulations after the 2008 crisis were passed for political reasons, and the jury is still out on the 2010 dodd/frank wall street reform law. a stolen e-mail wikileaks says was to campaign chairman john podesta and others last october reveals clinton decided to oppose the tpp trade deal even before seeing the final version. contrary to her later claim. an adviser write, if she weighs in now without viewing the document, some in labor might wonder why she didn't just say she opposed earlier. donald trump and surrogates

7:09 am
>> let us talk about all of this with chuck todd. good morning to you. >> good morning, sir. >> months and months hillary clinton refused to talk about or release the transcripts of the speeches to goldman sachs saying you know, she would do that sometime when donald trump released his taxes. now we know allegedly what was included in her comments to goldman sachs. do you have a better sense of why she didn't release them? >> i sure do. this was i think this would have been more problematic for her in the democratic primaries. look, the democratic party is moving in a direction much faster to the left than hillary clinton ever was. what wikileaks, what we have learned out of all of this, matt, on one hand it sort of reinforced what we thought we knew about hillary clinton. but politically, ideally this will be exposed during the primaries that basically she was making a calculation to move to the left, i think it would have been absolutely damaging in the primary and possibly cost her the nomination.
7:10 am
>> so obviously if you say it would have been that damaging in the primary the question then is how damaging if at all is it now with three weeks to go until the general election? >> i think in a general election much less damaging, one, i mean there are some voters that are going to be reassured that she is in the middle here a little bit, number one. and second, remember who her opponent is. i think against another opponent this could be more lethal. i think against donald trump obviously he blots out the sun with all of his problems. >> let's talk about donald trump. he spent the weekend really honing in on this idea and this message that the whole system is rigged. if you really think about it, i mean, that's a message that not a message to win, it's not a message to turn out voter because frankly people might get depressed and think why bother. it's to explain a loss. >> that's right, and i think it's also a message as a way to not lose either. to not look like a loser.
7:11 am
this is going to be donald trump looking like a fighter, donald trump defining victory in his own way. i mean, we've got -- we know donald trump pretty well i think the three of us, one thing he'll never admit is to losing or failing at anything. so, to me this feels like donald trump's way of deciding this fight for the presidency will make him look like a winner even if he gets trounced. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. >> you got it. >> >> nbc news will bring you the third final presidential debate wednesday night. coverage begins 9:00 eastern time. overseas a massive operation launched by the iraqi army to wrestle control of mosul, the country's second largest city from the hands of isis. nbc's richard engel is with troops on the move in northern iraq this morning. good morning. tell us what you're seeing there. >> reporter: good morning. this is a major operation where we are we've been hearing rockets and artillery throughout
7:12 am
the day. it began in the early morning hours and around 60,000 iraqis are taking part, it's also the main focus of the some 5,000 u.s. troops in this country. the biggest offensive against isis anywhere so far has begun. and this morning iraqi forces backed by american air power and artillery are on the move. >> it seems like every iraqi in uniform and every vehicle is being brought in for this operation. and so far this stage moving the armor to the front line is moving very quickly. but american commanders say it could slow down considerably if and when they meet resistance. heading into battle but their mood is upbeat. as the attack convoy stopped briefly, some troops started dancing. and they are getting a warm reception from iraqi civilians. many villagers came out to welcome the troops as they advanced toward mosul where more
7:13 am
than a million people are penned in by isis as human shields. but then as the convoy drew closer to mosul an ominous sign. huge plumes of black smoke shut out the sun. isis torched these oil wells, wells it used to fund its terror rather than allow them to go back to the iraqi government. many iraqis want revenge for over two years of isis abuses. we will be victorious in mosul, god willing a soldier said. it's unclear how long the mosul offensive will take, days or perhaps a few months. it depends on what isis has in store for these troops. iraq's prime minister said this mission has one goal, to liberate mosul from isis and god willing we will win. back to you. >> richard, thank you. an update on a tragic story out of lexington, kentucky, the 15-year-old daughter of olympic

7:16 am
out into shark infested water. >> two other shark swim below me. >> reporter: above panic, someone opens the hatch and ming emerges. >> i don't think he -- he panicked. just accident. >> reporter: close encounters occur. it can look like a shark attack, in fact, the animal is unable to swim backwards. experts warn tourists not to take risk like in mexico earlier this year. a diver touching a shark's nose. after this latest incident, ming says he'll keep diving. >> i get back to the cage the next day. >> reporter: ming says the shark was so powerful he was thrown out of the cage and left holding a piece of the torn off metal, he says that he was not that frightened because everything happened so quickly. i'm not sure everyone would say that. >> i would agree with that. thank you.
7:17 am
>> i had not thought about it. bad in the cage, not great outside either. thank you. back to the video now we showed you at the top of the show. it's dramatic rescue caught on camera sunday, after a fiery crash in florida. two vehicles collided, sending an suv off the road and down a very steep embankment. cell phone video shows palm bay police officers and several bystanders rushing to free the trapped driver as the suv burst into flames. after they pulled him out they locked arms, form add human chain, carried the driver up to safety. he only has minor injuries. to dylan for a check of the weather. al is on the mend. >> he picked a good week to recover. it's going to be in the 80s, sunny, fantastic this week across the northeast and in fact, across most of the country it's going to feel like late august than october. summer temperatures thanks to this area of high pressure pushing the jet stream up to the north. look at memphis, 88 degrees for

8:32 am
some showers, some thunderstorms, too. by the end of the week those move into the northeast with that cold front that's moving in. temperature wise though, it is going to be a very warm week. most of the country will be dealing with much above-average temperatures by as much as 25 to 30 degrees. record highs are likely all through the beginning of the week. then things will balance out a bit as we get to the end of the week. but then it gets above average back throu all right. starting to see clearing skies around san francisco into the north bay after what was left of some showers this morning around tri-valley moving off to the east. still a slight chance we could see an isolated shower or two at least before sundown tonight. temperatures mid-60s around san francisco and low 70s across the valleys today. from here skies clear and things begin to dry out. look at those temperatures for the second half of the week around the coast and san francisco mid-70s and reach mid-80s inland possibly starting

8:35 am
traditional outfit, not a tuck s tuxedo outfit. you think i can pull that off? bobbie doesn't seem so sure. let's get to the ladies. we've got tamron. what was tamron's big question? >> so tamron wanted to try one of the hottest trends of the season which is the boyfriend jean. now we have seen beyonce, rhea that, gwen stefani. tamron was worried she would look wider in the boyfriend jeans. >> it really helps that tamron is not shy when it comes to the orange carpet. >> here's the crick with boyfriend jeans. you want them to be fitted through the hips, fitted through the butt which is really important, then baggy through the leg. that's how you get that boyfriend jean that looks like your jeans, not your actual

8:39 am
boot. dyl dylan, how do you feel. >> because i'm so short with stubby legs, i would never think of putting on boots this high. >> you look amazing in this. >> thank you. >> will you try this more often? >> i think i might. yeah. i'm not really a dress person. like in real life. but can i wear these with jeans? >> you can wear them over leggings, you can wear them over jeans. we'll help you style a million different ways. >> well done, dylan. >> kathie lee. we say last, but not least. what was kathie lee worried about? get out of here! >> yes. now i was so excited to dress miss kathie lee because there isn't anything she hasn't worn. so matt, you'll be happy to -- i started at the adult shop. a sheer body suit. fashion is everywhere. you can wear fashion regardless of your age or size or anything. getting you in the sheer shirt was so much fun. you are down to try anything but

she was performing and her ponytail got hikdooked in her earring. blood started spilling down her ear. she never stopped performing. what's the craziest thing when you wanted to stop? >> i just remember being on stage when you have bronchitis or you have the flu. and the people who have paid money to see you really don't care. you have to give them their money's worth. that's something i used to talk about on "american idol" a lot. the lot of the kids would come on and say i don't feel well. my theory is, well, if you're well enough to be here, then don't tell us. you have to go ahead and do it. if you're sick, you should stay home and take care of yourself. but beyonce i think is a tremendous performer so it is not a surprise at all that she just defendaidn't make a big de. >> does your ear hurt? >> couple of months ago -- i

still can't wear earrings. >> your ears are not pierced? >> yeah. but i've never had one rip out of my ear before. >> you mean it ripped through the lobe of her ear? >> mine was almost through the lobe and we had to get this guy to sew both of my ears up. i still can't wear nearrings. >> how many earrings is too many? my daughters are old enough to decide for themself. they say i want a double piercing. i mean how many earrings -- >> i have one, two, three, four on this side. >> four. >> i have two on this side. but i want five. i don't think there is a limit. >> just whatever you're feeling. do you ever wear four on the air. >> >> i do. i let this one close up because every time i pick up the phone to answer, i hit it. it hurts. it hurts. >> do you sleep with those in? >> yeah. seems like a lot of work to take them all out. >> these i leave in. hopefully next week i can finally get these pierced again. >> you sleep with them and

9:39 am
really crispy. >> that's hard to do. >> i'll start with a breast that has the bone and the skin. it is hard to buy boneless skin-on breasts. we're going to take it off which is a really simple technique. a sharp paring knife, cut down along the ribs here. >> is this just a simple one-two kind of thing? >> yeah. basically just follow the curvature of the ribs. >> that's intimidating, to be honest. >> you are intimidated right now? >> little bit. little bit. >> it's really simple. >> you cook a lot, tamron? >> i do cook like four times a week. i've never gotten comfortable deboning. >> you can't buy a breastbo, boneless with the skin? >> no. >> come over and poke it 30 or 40 times in the skin. this is a key step. you have a lot of fat under here and you have to render out the fat giving it a bunch of channels to come out. we also want to add salt and
9:40 am
want the salt to have a good place to go. simple so far. the next thing is we want really good contact with the skin and the pan. that's how we get it crispy and we have a round chick een breas. >> right. >> that's no good. pound it out. harry, i'm sure you have really bad days. come home, take it out on the chicken breast. >> that sounds appropriate. >> you can write a song about it or you can pound a chicken. >> i already did. don't worry, that's what i do. >> so you pound it out. >> yep. then we're going on to this rack over here. we all know that chicken breasts can dry out pretty easily. >> yeah. >> which is a big complaint. there is nothing worse than when the chicken is dry. >> first we're going to season it ahead of time with some salt on both sides. >> the pounding it out is the best tip for ame because it is rounded and it is that one piece that gets burned. >> i'm going to ask harry connick jr. to put this in the
9:41 am
fridge for me. >> that's a once in a lifetime thing. >> there is one in there that's been in there for about an hour. >> keep it in mind when you make this recipe, it does require one hour refrigeration. plan ahead. >> up to eight hours. do it ahead if you want. >> got it. >> i cook on cast iron almost all my meals. >> cast iron is great. we're actually going to use the classic 12-inch skillet which is super versatile. we're going to get some good sticking. we'll get that brown bits that are going to go into a sauce. you can use olive oil or veg oil as well. >> you want this chicken to come back to room temperature? >> no. start with the chicken cold. put the chicken in cold. cold pan, cold chicken. >> cold pan, too? >> cold pan, cold chicken. >> which is all news to me. i would have gotten the oil hot. >> which is what you normally do. what's great about this method, it actually goes back to some classic french technique. >> harry, you should know that.
9:42 am
you speak french, you told me. [ speaking foreign language ]. >> you heard that in my earpiece. >> you get it hot. >> we're going to put over medium hot. we're going to take this cast iron skillet and put it on top. >> way out of my league. >> you're going to go seven to nine minutes over here. flip it over. that's basically going to be done. >> the heat is high-medium? >> medium heat. these guys go over here. we'll use this great pan. drippings right here to make the sauce. >> what do we do with that? >> this looks like a roux. >> it does look like a roux. for dan's recipe, go to looks like a roux. as harry pointed out. >> yep. just do a little bit of browning and softening on that shallot there. then we're going to build our
9:43 am
sauce which is a little bit of the brought. we've got the brine from the pickled cherry peppers that we're using. >> harry, dig in. tell us what you think. we also have sauteed mushrooms. >> man. >> delish? >> yeah. >> really re-inventing chicken breasts. >> thank you, dan. dylan, i was wondering where you are. there's food and you are nowhere to be found. >> i'm all the way downstairs. it looks delicious though. let's take a look at what's going on for the week ahead. we are still going to see some scattered showers in the pacific northwest, isolated thunderstorms through wisconsin today. then as we get to the middle of the week, the midwest gets most of the scattered showers and storms. by the end of the week it is going to make its way into the northeast. temperature wise, it is going to be a warm week. we are looking at much above average temperatures. about 20 to 30 degrees. most likely breaking some records early this week. the below-average temperatures in the middle of the week out west will be replaced by
