7:01 am
"bachelor" star chris soules, one he made himself, before police say he fled the scene. >> is he breathing, sir? >> i can't tell. >> this morning, a new twist, investigators trying to find out who drove him home. and up in the air. a woman casually takes a seat on a crane 12 stories high forcing a delicate and dangerous two-and-a-half-hour rescue. >> what did she say to you? >> i'm okay, how you doing? i'm doing good, just hope we can get out of this together. >> now she's under arrest. why she was up there, still in the first place a mystery today, thursday, april 27, 2017. >> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from stood studio isa in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a thursday morning. >> i guess you file that last one in the category of things you don't see every day. but luckily it ended okay. >> yeah, but a dangerous
7:02 am
situation there. we'll have more on that in a moment. >> but we're going to begin on this thursday morning with a real flurry of activity at the white house. >> president trump is abandoning his plan to withdraw from nafta, at least for now, while the battle over his administration's massive tax reform plan just is getting underway. we'll talk to the secretary of the treasury in a moment, but first we've got it covered starting with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. new scrutiny about the tax reform plan this morning. the white house putting out a one-page outline that simplifies the way the tax code works. what's missing here, the details and how they plan to pay for it. also, today the president is revisiting his promise to pull out of one of the country's biggest trade deals. this morning a seismic shift on nafta after threatening to pull out of mexico and canada just hours earlier. the white house reversing course late wednesday, saying they are now willing to renegotiate. while the issue has been a hot
7:03 am
topic for mr. trump both on the air and once in office. >> it's a disaster. take trading disaster. >> reporter: overnight president trump holding what the white house describes as pleasant and productive calls with both his canadian and mexican counterparts, all vowing to work together. it comes as the white house is touting one of the biggest tax cuts in american history. >> we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to do something really big. >> reporter: despite bold promises, the specifics remain a mystery. >> when we have an agreement, we'll release the details. >> reporter: here's what we do know and how it could affect you. your income tax rate could change because the plan would reduce the number of brackets from seven to three, with rates of 10%, 25% and 35%. say you're a newly married couple filing jointly for the first time. if you file today, you take a standard deduction of more than $12,000. under the trump plan, it would double to $24,000, meaning you pay less in taxes. have childcare expenses? the white house is promising tax
7:04 am
relief. and as for your mortgage payments and contributions to charity, the popular deductions wouldn't be touched. the plan also a boon for businesses both large and small. slashing the corporate tax rate to 15%. a year ago canada trump told today he would be ask the wealthy to pay more. >> do you believe in raising taxes on the wealthy? >> i do. including myself, i do. >> reporter: so how would this plan affect the president's taxes? that's unclear. the treasury secretary flatly dismissing questions about whether the president would release his own returns. >> the president has no intention, the president has released plenty of information. and i think has given more financial disclosure than anybody else. i think the american population has plenty of information. >> reporter: this morning critics are already pouncing on this plan, arguing that it's basically favoring the wealthiest americans and would blow up the deficit. also this morning, a deal to overhaul health care policy may be closer than ever.
7:05 am
conservative members of the house freedom caucus, the ones who opposed the last version, now coming out in support of a new agreement, but now many moderate republicans are undecided, concerned that the new plan would allow insurers to charge people with pre-existing conditions more. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander at the white house, thank you. treasury secretary steven mnuchin, thank you for being with us. >> great to be here with you. >> let's start with the clip we just played. candidate trump was on this show telling our viewers a year ago that he believed in raising taxes on the wealthy, including himself. would you acknowledge that the reform plan you have laid out does the exact opposite, in fact, it is a dramatic cut in taxes for the wealthy? >> no, this isn't about a drawed make cut in taxes for the wealthy. this is about lowering tax rates in return for getting rid of massive amounts of deductions and special interests. >> but it does cut taxes for the wealthy, right? >> again, when we lay out the exact details of the plan, what
7:06 am
you'll see is, this is about reducing taxes and tax simplification. this is about a middle-income tax cut. this is about having sweeping tax cuts, the largest tax cuts in history, the largest tax reform program in history, to create american jobs. this is all about jobs, jobs, jobs. >> let me just ask you one thing, can you give me an example of a wealthy individual or corporations whose taxes will go up under what you have proposed? >> again, what we wanted to do was lay out the president's principles. and his principles are all part of his economic plan. he is determined to create economic growth, of 3% or higher, and in regards to this, again, this is about lowering business taxes to make businesses competitive. we have a very uncompetitive business tax system. and by doing this, we'll create lots and lots of jobs. >> i'm glad you talked about growth because the committee for a responsible budget, which is a nonpartisan organization, says the numbers are a problem here,
7:07 am
mr. secretary. they say it's going to result in between $3 and $7 trillion fewer dollars coming into the government. and to compensate that with growth, the growth rate would have to be 4.5%. you just said you're hoping for a growth rate of about 3%. that's going to result in a blossoming of the deficit, isn't it? >> matt, first of all, the other people, external groups, who normally model the plans, haven't modeled the plan because they said they don't have the details. so the numbers that you're citing, we don't agree with those numbers. and we don't think they are accurate. and when we come out with the details of the plan, we'll show, this is going to be paid for by a combination of economic growth, which will be around 3%, or slightly higher, and a combination of by reducing massive amounts of deductions and special interests. >> so without getting overly dramatic then, mr. secretary, would you be willing to raise your right hand and look at the american people and say, i, steven mnuchin, promise you that this will be revenue-neutral and
7:08 am
deficit-neutral? >> again, our objective, matt, is to pay for this with economic growth. so right now we're working with the house and the senate. this is now about taking the president's principles and turning them into a bill that we can get passed and the president can sign this year so we can create economic growth. and we're going to work closely with congress to get this done. so, matt, yes, our principles are we want to pay with this with economic growth and with reducing lots and lots of special interest deductions. >> but you know this, this idea that you can pay for it with economic growth is kind of a washington fairy tale. you hear about it all the time, tax cuts definitely stimulate growth. the question is whether it's enough. there's a guy named steve bell, a republican staff member in the '80s when reagan had his tax cut, and he said this is fool's gold that you'll cut taxes. everybody works harder, more money comes in and you erase the fiscal impact. he says it never happens. >> we obviously don't agree with
7:09 am
that and there are plenty of economists who have lined up with what we're saying. let me just tell you, there are many study that is show 70% or more of the tax burden of corporations is born by the american workers. so this is about lowering the business taxes for both big corporations and small and medium-sized businesses, putting that money back in the pockets of american workers and, by the way, by creating a territorial system, we will bring back trillions of dollars that have been parked offshore because of complicated tax systems, that these companies will invest in american plants, american equipment, to create american jobs. >> real, real quickly, mr. secretary, you have said the president has already revealed a lot of financial information, more than anyone. we could argue about that for an entire other segment, but doesn't it make your job harder to go out and sell a tax plan that's going to impact every american's tax returns when the president of the united states has not been transparent with
7:10 am
his own tax returns? >> not at all, matt. i think the american public is comfortable with the information the president has released. this is not about the impact of one taxpayers, this is the impact on american taxpayers and american business. and we are focused on economic growth and jobs, jobs, jobs. for too long this economy has been held back by regulatory issues, by tax burden, and we are unleashing that. >> real quickly -- sorry, just on the tax returns, you did say yesterday at your briefing the president has no intention to release his tax returns. he used to say he would when the audits were complete. is it your understanding he will never release his tax returns? >> well, i'm going to let the president decide what he's going to do in the future. that's obviously up to him. and again, what the president is focused and i'm focused on is, creating opportunities for the american public. and weapon couldn couldn't be m about that. and this plan is the beginning
7:11 am
of creating economic growth. >> treasury secretary steven mnuchin, thank you for your time, we appreciate it. >> thank you, appreciate it. we move to north korea there and the crisis. overnight the regime promised to wipe out the u.s. and south korea if either shows the slightest provocation. also this morning, we are learning more on what was said during the rare white house briefing on north korea for the entire u.s. senate. nbc white house correspondent kristen welker as the latest on that. kristen, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. we are hearing from senators who attended that rare briefing here at the white house yesterday. some calling it sobering. others say it yielded little information, still there is broad agreement that it underscores the increasing tensions and tense standoff with north korea. overnight in a rare interview, a top north korean government official said a sixth nuclear test will happen. and that nuclear and missile tests will never stop as long as the u.s. continues with what the
7:12 am
north sees acts of aggression. aggression with military allies. armed with tomahawk missiles and the defense system thaad on north korea's doorstep. this comes just hours after the administration invited the u.s. senate to the white house for an urgent briefing on the nuclear threat posed by the regime, an unprecedented move. the defense secretary, the secretary of state and chairman of the joint chiefs collectively calling north korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons an urgent national security threat. the group also telling senators they are pursuing diplomatic measures but are prepared to defend ourselves and our allies, and that includes military preparations. reactions to the meeting mixed. >> the threat that north korea poses to our allies and the united states is serious and real. >> north korea is the most dangerous spot on the planet right now. >> reporter: some expressing all the tough talk could promote kim
7:13 am
jong-un. >> the white house is ratcheting up rhetoric that has no off-ramp. >> reporter: they say part of the u.s. is within striking distance of north korea's arsenal. >> kim jong-un is clearly in a position to threaten hawaii today, in my opinion. >> reporter: the trump administration is still stressing diplomacy over military action, in fact, considering new sanctions on bank that is do business with north korea. and secretary of state rex tillerson is expected to press for more sanctions during a special session of the u.n. security council tomorrow. matt, savannah? >> kristen welker at the white house. thank you, kristen. this morning united airlines is out with its own internal report on the embarrassing incident of the passenger dragged from a flight that happened earlier this month. the report explains what went wrong and what can be done to stop it again. and nbc's lester holt sat down with une united's ceo and here' more with that. good morning.
7:14 am
>> good morning. he calls this the backlash of the result of a system failure with employees constrained by outdated rules to the bad choice of summoned law enforcement. we spoke to the airline's operation center in chicago where he laid out to me what united had learned and how it plans to change. >> we used public trust in a serious breach. >> reporter: sorry is not enough with a bloodied david dao dragged from a united flight. >> it was a system failure across the board. and i own the policies and procedures and the comments and the empowerment, if you will, for those people to do the right things. because the circumstance never should have happened. >> reporter: not offering enough compensation to entice
7:15 am
passengers to voluntarily give up their seats and calling law enforcement to get dr. dao to leave his seat. do you think those officers overstepped their bounds once they were onboard that airplane? >> our policies and procedures put all those folks involved that day involved in impossible situations. we have to stop doing that. do i believe what the law enforcement folks did was wrong? yeah. but it was i and we that put them in that situation. >> did your folks essentially say, this guy has to get off the airplane and do whatever you have to do to get him off the airplane? >> i don't know if the specific instructions do anything. we have, unfortunately, had to do this before. most folks in the face of law enforcement would get up. we do not give specific instructions as to what you saw. >> reporter: the report also finds the airline failed to offer other modes of transportation and front line employees lacked training for denied boarding situations. munoz believes new policies need to focus on the passenger
7:16 am
experience. >> they're dated and built on a structure of discipline and regular running and operation. >> reporter: in addition to limiting the use of police to safety and security issues, united today announced additional training for front-line employees to deal with difficult situations, allowing them to make on-the-spot decisions. an automated system that will ask you at check-in if you want to volunteer to give up your seat. and offering up to $10,000 to a passenger to willingly take another flight. one of the things in this report you talk about becoming more customer focused. isn't customer service, putting the customer first, a given? >> it is. but we make sure half a million people every single day get to somewhere safely. and it's a complicated process. and when you have a complicated process like that, the operational mindset becomes sort of front and center. and we forget, sometimes, that the people you're carrying are human and have interests and have desires where they are going. connecting people, simple words,
7:17 am
what that means is connecting people regardless of where you're sitting. >> reporter: munoz was going to be chairman of united next year but decided to forego that promotion saying he did not think that the time was right. and the attorney for david dao is applauding united's actions and changes. >> you get the sense that mr. munoz would like a do-over of how things were handled at the beginning. >> yeah, this was a low point for the united industry and hope things move upward, no pun intended. >> we'll have a lot more on this interview tonight on "nbc nightly news." one of our favorite shows around here. and in other news this morning, how about this? a passenger kicked off a delta flight in atlanta earlier this month for using the bathroom while the plane was on the tarmac waiting to take off. this, despite the crew telling passengers to stay in their seats.
7:18 am
the 39-year-old said he told delta agents he couldn't hold it anymore. after a 30-minute delay on the tarmac, when delta agents asked him to be removed from the plane, he refused. >> i don't understand why i'm being asked to remove the plane. i had an emergency, i had to pee. i tried to hold it the first time and i absolutely couldn't. >> and i understand that. >> eventually, all the passengers were forced to exit that plane. hamilton was not allowed to reboard. he was not arrested and was given a partial refund. in a statement, delta said it is imperative that passengers comply with crew instructions during all phases of the flight. and now to a massive wildfire burning out of control in arizona. officials say the sawmill fire happening in tucson has charged more than 40,000 acres. they say the fire is only 7% contained right now. highways in the area were shut down on wednesday. about 200 people were forced to evacuate their homes. the cause of the fire is still
7:19 am
under investigation. not to get into the rules and regulations, but i've been there on a plane when -- >> we all have. >> when you have to -- >> usually the flight attendant -- >> will let you get up real quickly. >> not kick you off the plane, usually. >> it's not a good feeling. >> and not a good feeling for our friends in illinois with copious amounts of rain. can you imagine trying to drive in this? a lot of folks said, the heck with this and pulled over. even the winds caused big problems for some semi tractor-trailers out there as well. trees down, limbs down, a real mess. and we've got more on tap for tomorrow on into saturday. right now we've got showers and thunderstorms around chicago, on into indianapolis, down into knoxville. but friday, zplmplts

7:42 am
>> good morning, guys. we began this journey five months ago with the goal of meeting and listening to the people that many of us missed during the campaign. and this morning one of them has something to say that he says isn't easy. brad knew he was taking a big leap when he voted for donald trump. >> i was a democrat. my grandpa, my dad, they were union guys, so i never even thought about voting for a republican. >> reporter: but he never thought flipping sides would create this much chaos. >> this seems to be a real mess in washington right now. i know that's for sure. it's almost like they are damn near playing childish games with each other. >> reporter: since january we have been hitting the road across five states meeting americans just like brad, democrats, first-time voters, and even bernie sanders supporters. they all ended up voting for donald trump. we've come back to bay county, michigan, which went red for the first time since ronald reagan. none of you ever voted for republican. >> correct. i used to not vote. >> correct. >> reporter: this is where brad was with his neighbor jason.
7:43 am
a one-time bernie supporter who at 29 years old cast his first ever presidential vote for donald trump. >> he has answers. we don't always like them. sometimes he offends the crap out of people but he has an answer. >> reporter: in less than two months, jason's enthusiasm has turned to angle. >> i feel like i was bamboozled. and i feel mad and dumb, honestly. >> reporter: how did the president lose the support of a guy who cheered for him during his first speech to congress? >> it almost sounded progressive-ish. he was really open, willing to work with both sides of the fence. four days after that, maybe? more russia stuff started piling up, he talked about being wire-tapped. he's on twitter saying this about this person. >> reporter: jason says this was the deal-breaker. the attack on syria, tough talk on north korea and the massive bomb dropped on isis in afghanistan. >> i don't want to see the new
7:44 am

we're back now, 8:30 on a thursday morning, it's the 27th day of april, 2017. we are getting a break from some really wet weather. >> all right. coming up, the new documentary that's exploring the infamous jonbenet ramsey case. we'll talk to the new director. and we mentioned before, dr. phil is going to answer your questions about parenting and relationships. and it will tell us about a really sbregs tinteresting topi show today. and "groundhog day" goes to broadway. we'll get a special performance
8:31 am
of the cast. but first, a check on the weather from mr. roker. >> ahead looking to the weekend, beautiful with record highs through the southeast. veer sto severe storms in the mississippi river and snow in the rockies. and record highs along the east coast, heavy rain in the mississippi river valleys. the possibility of flooding. we are looking at wet weather in the pacific northwest. sunday, sunday! flooding continues in the mid-mississippi river area. we're looking at plenty of sunshine in the midatlantic coast. the gulf coast is looking pretty good from texas to the southwest. and showers move into the pacific northwest. you are a beautiful young lady at 80 years young. what is your age? >> my name is ricki good morning. i'm meteorologist bill henley. yes, we have a cloudy start, but we will get some sunshine today. and look at the warmup. partly sunny this afternoon. 78 degrees in philadelphia. dry for the suburbs. those clouds thin out. sunshine and 76 degrees and
8:32 am
partly sunny for new jersey this afternoon. 77 inland areas at the shore, the sea breeze will keep it in the 60s. you still see a lot of sunshine at the jersey shore. lehigh valley, breaks in the clouds. 77 this afternoon. and into the upper 70s for delaware. have a great day. >> that is your latest weather. don't forget, get the weather e you need. check out our buddies at the weather channel on cable. savannah? all right, al, thanks. as promised, dr. phil mcgraw is joining us now. a special episode of "dr. phil" is airing today. we'll talk about that in a couple minutes. but first, he's answering your questions that you submitted on dr. phil, good morning to you. >> good morning. good to see you. >> the first question came from carrie, she's from california. how do i get my 17-year-old daughter to open up? she openly shares things that make her laugh, but when it comes to upsetting feelings she clamps up. i tell her i would never judge her or punish her when needed. but it is scary to know she holds these scary feelings inside. that's a good question.
8:33 am
>> it is a good question. you have to be sure to be the best voice in your child's ear. here's the thing, you have to talk about things that don't matter so the channel is open when it's time to talk about thing that is do matter. and a real key is, don't make them feel conspicuous. you up don't want to sit down like you and i are and say, tell me how you feel? because it's not going to happen. with my boys, i used to shoot baskets or kick a can down the road, do anything when they didn't feel on the spot. and then they would start talking to you. and don't forget the principle of you get what you get. if you're honest and real with them, they tend to give it back to you. >> interesting to share that yourself. >> don't give big adult issues but share something that means something to you. >> heather says, what techniques can you use to stop using the same bad habits on your children that your parents used on you? my parents talked poorly of each other in front of me and i find myself doing the same in front of my kids. >> you do want to break the leaguecy. but you don't break habits, you
8:34 am
replace a habit with a new habit. you have to make a conscious choice to do it and pat yourself on the back when you do. begin with this, begin with apologizing to your children for what you have done. acknowledge it and say, listen, i've been doing something i shouldn't do. i'm going to out myself and tell you that. we're going to start a new day. you remind me if i don't and i'm going to pat myself on the back when i do it the right way. it sets a new tone and a new day. but break the legacy and hold your own feet to the fire. >> then you have accountability with your own kid. >> yes, you do. >> kelly has a question about the kids and money. she says, how do you get a 16-year-old to realize that money does not grow on trees? i'm a single parent. when i do find a little extra money to give her, she spends it on things like makeup and still needs money for school projects. i'm on a very linmited budget. >> first, don't tempt her. it's not a gift if you give money and judge how they spend it. that's not a gift.
8:35 am
if you give them the money, then they should be able to do whatever they want to with it. but don't tempt her. if she doesn't have maturity to handle the money consistent with the family plan, then she shouldn't be given the money. and you need to explain that to her ahead of time. and let her suffer the consequences of her choices. if she spends it and then there's not money for school lunches, let her go hungry for the day. she'll learn real fast. >> a quick lightning round. my husband and i both work full-time and are graduate students, how can we keep our marriage fun and healthy during this stressful time? >> con partmentalize and realize you will do better if you take breaks. >> we have grandparents very worried about how their daughter is rearing their grandchild, a little 2-year-old. >> yes. >> so what happens? >> well, here's the thing, we've got almost 5 million grandchildren being raised by 3 million grandparents in america. and they often get interfered with by their child who gave
8:36 am
them their grandchild to raise. and in this case, they put a gps tracker on their daughter's car to see what she was doing. and sure enough, they think she's out running drugs, they think she's out doing a lot of things. and then coming in and giving her opinion on how they are raising her child. and that's where grandparents get into trouble. they take the child and have the responsibility, but then they start getting their inventory taken by the mother of the child. that's where you get in a lout of trouble. >> sounds like a good case for dr. phil. >> you have to do one thing. one piece offed a vi ed fed ad parental rights. if you don't get the parental rights, do not get yourself exhorted. >> come thank you, dr. phil.
8:37 am
coming up, we'll talk about "casting nbenethn we just moved into this house and didn't realize how difficult it was going to be to tie all that space together. with an open floor plan, you need to separate it with furniture. bassett had everything that we needed. fabric combinations marry the rooms together. having someone with bassett has been invaluable. we could've never dreamed up this room without bassett.
8:38 am
8:39 am
welcome back, everybody. the up solved murder of jonbenet ramsey has fascinated the world for two decades. the case is the focus of a new documentary "casting jonbenet" coming to netflix tomorrow. we'll talk to the director, but first, here is nbc's jacob rascon. >> i'm awe dissing for the role of john ramsey. >> and i'm auditioning for the role of pat ramsey. >> this is a murder told in a way no one has told before. ramsey was found dead in her family's basement christmas 1996 strangled to death after being knocked unconscious sparking two >> there is no information that leads us to the suspect.
8:40 am
>> suspicions. >> i did not kill my daughter, jon bene. >> a nationwide fascination but 20 years later, there is been no real answers. her 9-year-old brother, and strangers, including false confessions. a grand jury voted to indict her parents for felony child abuse but they were never charged and were later cleared by the d.a. last year her brother burke who also denied involvement spoke exclusively to dr. phil. >> the first thing i remember is my mom, the first thing in my room, really frantic saying, oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh. running around my room looking for jonbenet. >> though the case has gone cold, the fascination has not. >> it's always someone you know. >> the mother had to do it. >> she had no motive. >> in the film, it pushes the boundary of the local documentary. local actors from boulder, colorado, were asked to speak about the case, their emotional connection to it and their conspiracy theories.
8:41 am
those open and honest audition tapes formed "casting jonbenet." >> how can a 9-year-old pull off a murder like this? >> this opened the culture of those obsessed with it. >> i'm auditioning for jonbenet ramsey? do you know who killed jonbenet ram see? >> kitty green, the director of "casting jonbenet" is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> even just watching those clips, it is kind of cringey to watch young girl auditioning for the role of jonbenet ramsey. tell us about it. >> well, there have been numerous tv specials and so many books, so many films about jonbenet ramsey, kind of a who done it? or how are we going to solve it? at this point, we don't know who did it. or we will probably never know for the foreseeable future who did it. so we are looking at the
8:42 am
community inside boulder, colorado, and the reaction and response to the crime and how they have their personal reflections on what happened that night. >> so these are actual actors from the boulder area who obviously have a keen knowledge of this particular crime. and they came in to audition. did you say to them, hey, look, the audition tapes are going to end up being the film here? did you tell them that? >> yeah, we were really honest with them because they were really honest with us. and you'll see it in the film. they kind of reveal all. and we said, if you're going to play patsy ramsey in the movie, based on what you know, is she guilty or innocent, how would you go about playing that role? that was interesting to us. >> i think so many people come to a role, which is what you find here, which made this really fascinating. they come to a role with their own emotional baggage, if you will. they have come either from a divorce or broken family, or there are -- an illness, a passing, all these things kind of weave into their own personal theory. so we are actually hearing the theories of these actors and
8:43 am
actresses when it comes to the murder of jonbenet? >> yeah. interesting how a community deals with the unsolved crime. when there are more questions than answers, how do they deal with uncertainty, am big biguit doubt? and the mystery and wanting to guess, that's what we probed people on. people connected to their own emotional stuff and histories with their mother or brother. they would bring up all this kind of really dark, emotional conflict with us. >> what did you learn from the community of boulder about this murder? >> so much. i interviewed 200 people. 72 people are in the film. and we got stories from people, diverse, wide-ranging stories, that some of them are heartbreaking, some of them hilarious, so it's a mixed bag of people's impression living with the end of a shallow for 28 years. >> it got raves at film festivals, sundance and berlin, what do you hope people take away from this? >> it's about how we as a
8:44 am
community perceive the events. so i don't want to give you ideas on what to think. i want everyone to have their own opinion. >> all right. a unique take on this 20-year-old crime. thank you for joining us today. appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. >> "casting jonbenet" is heading to netflix tomorrow. up next, a live performance from "groundhog day," the musical. but first, this is "today" on nbc. hey allergy muddlers

9:08 am
i've had to do that. usually when you ask, the flight attendant lets you go. >> they say, hurry up. and my thing is, you don't know what he's dealing with. i don't know that man, but maybe he has a medical issue and can't hold it. >> or maybe he's diabetic. >> initially, all the passengers were asked to report to the exit anyway. but he was not allowed to reboard. he was given a partial rep fund. they didn't give him all he money back. >> wow. >> i'm making an official request for humanity. can we please increase the common sense? thank you so much. >> in a statement, delta said, it's imperative that passengers comply with the crew instructions during all phases of flight. we get that. but a little common sense and compassion. >> just a little bit. can i tell you something, here's a bright note. i feel guilty today. everybody brought your kids at work. if you're still at home, you can do that. look at our staff, all the cute kids downstairs in the orange room.
