7:02 am
daly, wrapping up buddy week on the today show. savannah has one more week of maternity leave. are you with the oscars like you are for march madness and the final four? >> i do. i have "la la land." >> we'll see if carson's predictions have much more early on. let's start on a friday morning with our top story. president trump taking the stage at the largest gathering of conservative leaders and activists. his speech comes a day after members of his administration addressed the gathering, including controversial strategist steve bannon. we have complete coverage, beginning with nbc's peter alexander. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. president trump will speak here at the political conservative action momentarily. trump is the first to address cpac in his first year of presidency since ronald reagan. this highlights what are the successes in the president's first month in office. vice president pence teeing up the president's arrival this morning. >> i promise you, he will never
7:03 am
stop fighting until we make america great again. >> reporter: team trump enjoying a victory lap at cpac. >> i think by tomorrow this will be tpac. >> reporter: kellyanne conway speaking out about feminism. >> i would tell your daughters or your daughters are you that the job for the first female president of the united states remains open. so go for it. >> reporter: and making a rare foray, the president's controversial strategist, steve bannon, head of breitbart. attacking the media, he's branded the opposition party. >> just like they're dead-wrong in the chaos of the campaign. just like they were dead-wrong on the chaos of the transition. they're dead-wrong with what's going on today. >> reporter: and touting the president's plans for a, quote, deconstruction of administrative
7:04 am
state. >> if you think they're going to give you the country back without a fight, you're sadly mistaken. hold us accountable for what we promised. hold us accountable for delivering what we promised. >> reporter: president trump highlighting one promise being fulfilled, a crackdown on undocumented immigrants. >> we're getting really bad dudes out of this country at a rate nobody has ever seen before. and they're the bad ones. and it's a military operation. >> reporter: that phrase, military operation, quickly contradicted by his homeland security secretary, meeting with mexican officials. >> there will be no use of military forces. there will be no, i repeat, no mass deportations. >> reporter: the white house clarifying. >> the white house was using that as an adjective. it's happening with precision. >> reporter: while another campaign promise -- >> we peel and replace obamacare. >> reporter: is -- is already facing obstacles. john boehner is telling a health conference that repeal and replace is not what's going to happen. they're going to fix the flaws and put a conservative box around it. also, they're looking to bolster the nuclear arsenal. >> a dream is that no country would have nukes.
7:05 am
but if countries are going to have nukes, we're going to be at the top of the pack. >> reporter: another item, combatting human trafficking, what ivanka's father called an epidemic. >> it's a very terrible problem. it's not talked about enough. >> reporter: the white house still not clarifying ivanka's role, but her presence at the high-level meetings is unmistakable. back now live after 7:00 pacific time, there's a live look where the president will be taking the stage momentarily. there are a couple days planned including the armed and fabulous, the new normal, and is heaven as a gate and a wall of extreme vetting, why can't america? >> peter alexander, thank you very much. and katelyn jenner is speaking out in a message on twitter. she says president trump has reneged on a promise to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identities.
7:06 am
>> i have a message for president trump from one republican to another. this is a disaster. and you can still fix it. you made a froms to pro -- made a promise to protect the lgbtq community. call me. >> one of the subjects we want to talk to steve kornacki and nicole wallace about. the president did a good job of saying he is going to continue to do what he promised to do during the campaign. this audience during that campaign had real fears about trump's conservative credentials. what specifically do they want to hear from him today? >> i remember saying at the republican convention that the republican party i worked for 20 years led by george w. bush and inspired by ronald reagan died in the room that night. that's a symbol of how weak
7:07 am
conservatism was. there's nothing conservative about what he's doing. but they have bought it, hook, line and sinker. >> what does he need to say? >> well, the question is, what is he going to say? and he is going to say the same of what he's been saying. that conservatism, is about protectionism and isolationism and the very things that animated fighting those three things, animated conservativism for generations before it. >> campaign on the trail, then, candidate trump said for repeal and replace obamacare. and then, has john boehner in orlando, at the health care conference, saying, they shouldn't actually call it that because that's not what is going to happen. they're going to fix the flaws and put a more conservative box around it. we saw that in peter's piece. that's a guy that knows a thing or two about the legislative process. the former speaker, mike pence at cpac, saying that obamacare, the nightmare is about to end. what does that say?
7:08 am
>> that's john boehner a guy that's waiting a few years to have the freedom to say that. that's something he wanted to say and couldn't. that's the bind that republicans are in right now. he says, if you take this away right now, this entire program and you don't have a replacement, you own any of the failures that happen. and they haven't had a placement in a generation. >> but repeal and replace makes a good bumper sticker. fix does not. >> it does not. but we had reporting that some of the early talks between outgoing president obama and incoming president trump were about doing just this, about rebranding it and tweaking it. so i think this has been the plan all along. >> really quick topic. military operation, that the president used in describing the round up and deportation of undocumented immigrants in this country. the white house tried to walk it back. did they succeed? >> so there's a story out this morning about how the generals, general kelly and general mattis' primary job is stood clean-up and save face for the united states of america around the world.
7:09 am
and you see that with this comment, general kelly saying this is not the case. there will not be mass deportations. you saw general mattis talking about how we are not after iraq's oil. the most interesting people to me right now are the generals who seem to be doing clean-up full-time. >> and steve, quickly on the transgender issue, we just saw it there, he said, president trump said on the campaign trail people should be able to use the bathroom they feel they identify with. what happened with this issue? >> they are getting a lot of negative attention on this, a lot of criticism, and there's a big chunk of the country outraged by what the administration is doing here. i do think it is worth stepping back and realize when you look at the polling on it, this country is split on this. there are a lot of people out there who are on board with what the administration is. and you look how fast these cultures are shifting. five years ago president obama was opposed to gay marriage on religious grounds. a lot of people have not come as far as the liberals on this issue. >> steve, thank you. nicole, welcome back, good to see you.
7:10 am
on monday former george w. bush will be here for an exclusive live interview and to show us his new tribute to america's wounded warriors. and on tuesday, house speaker paul ryan will join us live exclusively. we'll talk you on a first-of-its-kind tour of the capitol. that's on tuesday on "today". this morning, we're learning more about a confrontation between an off-duty police officer and teenagers. it ended when the officer opened fire and sparked protest. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer is in anaheim, california, with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that officer has not been named or spoken publicly. investigators believe he was firing that shot into the ground. still, he could face criminal charges. >> let go of me. not that hard. >> reporter: anaheim police say this was the first physical confrontation between an off-duty l.a. police officer and
7:11 am
a group of teens after a series of previous complaints about neighborhood kids trampling the officer's lawn. the confrontation quickly escalated as the officer and teen argue. >> i didn't say that. why are you lying. i said i'm going to sue you! >> reporter: after struggling with the boy for several minutes, the officer was surrounded by teenagers and tackled by one of them. before pulling a gun, firing a single shot. police say the officer felt threatened and made the decision to use force. >> during the confrontation, it is alleged the 13-year-old boy made a threat against the officer that led the officer to believe that he was going to shoot him. >> reporter: today, city leaders and police are shaken by what they see. though the video does not show the entire encounter. >> i'm deeply disturbed and frankly angered by what it shows. the video shows an adult
7:12 am
wrestling with a 13-year-old kid and ultimately firing a gun. >> reporter: with police now protecting one of their own, hunkered down across the street from the officer's property, which was vandalized during a rowdy protest wednesday night, neighbors are divided over what happened here. >> they come to our property, they kick our stuff around, they shove stuff into our tree -- confront them and they are very bold. >> we are upset. there's no reason for an officer to respond like that. they are trained to actually apprehend the person in a professional way. >> reporter: this morning, the dangerous confrontation that went from a struggle to a shooting remains under investigation. but many here have seen enough. and are now drawing their own conclusions. the two teens arrested were later released. they have not faced any criminal charges, but investigators say all parties involved including that officer could still face
7:13 am
criminal charges. the investigation should be complete in a few days. back to you guys. >> miguel, thank you very much. important update now. we now know what poison was used on the attack of the half-brother of north korea's leader. it was a banned and highly toxic nerve agent. kelly cobiella has more on this. kelly, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. yeah, another twist in this story in a frightening one. the malaysian police chief says that vx nerve agent, classified as a weapon of mass destruction, was used in the terminal of a crowded international airport to kill kim jong-nam. two women wiped kim jong-nam's face with a deadly nerve agent vx. investigators said the alleged killers washed their hands after the attack. one woman seen on surveillance video holding her hands away from her body. police say one of them was sick and vomiting. and that tests from kim
7:14 am
jong-nam's skin and eyes confirmed the poison. >> vx nerve agent, which is a chemical weapon. >> reporter: vx or venomous agent x, a tasteless, odorless liquid. experts say it's the deadliest nerve agent ever created. mere drops on the skin can kill and quickly, causing convulsions, eye pain and stopping breathing. kim jong-nam had a seizure in the ambulance and died before reaching the hospital. north korea is believed to have the third-largest stockpile of chemical weapons. this morning, malaysian officials say they're sweeping the airport for any trace of the deadly liquid. investigating how it got to the country and who might have smuggled it here. at the north korean embassy at kuala lumpur this morning, more denials. >> this is a lie. >> reporter: the north koreans deny they have been officially asked to cooperate. they say the investigation into the attack on kim jong-un's half-brother and one-time rival
7:15 am
is flawed and still haven't acknowledged that he's dead. seven north koreans are wanted for questioning, including a senior diplomat seen at the airport the day of the attack. and the malaysians say that diplomat is now in the north korean embassy in kuala lumpur, but no sign the north koreans will allow access to him. in fact, the war of words between the malaysians and the embassy is heating up. this morning, the malaysian foreign minister called the north korean ambassador delusional. matt? carson? >> a story that gets more and more bizarre. kelly, thank you very much. let's turn to the countdown to the oscars. hollywood, the big night on sunday. what exactly can you expect? joe fryer is out at the dolby theater in los angeles with a look ahead. joe, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carson. they rolled out the red carpet which is currently covered by a white tarp. come sunday, this will be a runway for hollywood's biggest stars.
7:16 am
well, "la la land" has the most nominations, but anything can happen on a night that promises to be entertaining and likely political. ♪ city of stars >> reporter: how brightly will the city of stars shine upon "la la land"? with 14 nominations, the musical would need to win 11 oscars to tie the all-time record. >> "la la land" is a perfect film. >> reporter: an "snl" sketch poked fun that it wasn't everyone's favorite film. >> it was fun, the scene was good. i guess i just didn't think it was amazing singing. >> reporter: its biggest challenger is "moonlight" a coming of age tale that talks about race and sexuality. >> things are a little bit up in the air. >> reporter: the fight for lead actor has tightened. "manchester by the sea's" casey affleck swept up most of the awards this year, but denzel washington is gaining momentum. >> mow make sure they are doing right by you. >> reporter: when it comes to
7:17 am
the leading ladies, emma stone faces her toughest competition from isabelle huppert and natalie portman. viola davis seems unstoppable, seeking her first oscar win for a role that already brought her a tony. >> let your head rest in my hand. >> reporter: while "moonlight" is vying for supporting actor in a diverse list of nominees that follows the so-white controversy. no matter who wins, politics will likely take the stage if the recent golden globes is any nomination or indication. >> we need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage. >> reporter: "the new york times" will debut its first-ever oscars ad, with a message, the truth is more important than ever. a sign that with millions watching, hollywood's biggest night could become its most political. the mood of the show might be

8:19 am
frosty conditions in the trivalley with some sunshine. and it is 33 degrees right now in the north bay. at least it is sunny. we continue on with some dry weather, going to see the highs reaching into the mid-50s today. 51 degrees, though, in san francisco. and into the weekend, our temperatures hold steady, but we'll see an increase in clouds and spotty light showers throughout the weekend. that's your latest weather. matt, look over here. we have all of our all-star chefs getting it together. all hanging out. all here. all ready to start cooking and giving you the big tips. yeah. >> fly home with some of the food, al. thank you very much. see you in a couple of minutes. this morning, we're hearing for the first time from a woman at the center of a story around the country. michelle hadley was put in jail for allegedly stalking her fian

fiance's former wife. we'll talk to michelle exclusively. first, "dateline's" dennis murphy has her story. >> reporter: the charges and the headlines were devastating to michelle hadley's parents, michael and suzanne. they couldn't, wouldn't believe it. nothing in cracter with >> there's nothing in character with the michelle that you raised here? >> not at all. >> police said michelle sent threatening e-mails to a woman named angela diaz. she had recently married michelle's ex-fiancee. >> there was clear evidence to believe michelle was sending the e-mails. >> but then the cyber threats became darker and even dangerous. michelle was suspected of responding to craigslist rape fantasy ads in angela's aims and directing men to angela's home. angela called 9d 11 saying none of those men attacked her. >> this is way beyond misdemeanor mischief. this is a criminal act. >> most definitely. >> michelle was arrested but insisted she was innocent.
8:21 am
it took months but eventually they unralveled the forensics. >> i'm here to announce the filing of a felony complaint against angela marie diaz. >> in a already beyond strange case this turned things up to 11. the d.a. said angela diaz was the mastermind and soul actor in an elaborate scheme to portray herself as a victim. she had quite simply framed michelle. >> michelle is accused to be angela that turned out to be angela pretending to be michelle pretending to be angela. >> inviting men to her own home to rape her. inflicting injuries on herself and all to put her husband's ex-girlfriend behind bars. what's more at least for a few months authorities say she

succeeded. >> we should mention angela diaz pleaded not guilty. michelle is with us exclusively along with her attorney. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> what's it like to live through this. >> who identify something it's your worse nightmare coming true. >> when you are being accused of all of these things, of sending the threatening e-mails of then sending men to angela's house to have sex with her forcibly you were telling the police i'm not doing this did you think they believed you. >> no, i got the sense it was the opposite. they didn't want to hear my side of the story. >> there's an extra part of this. when the relationship with your exfiancee broke up you did send e-mails to him that were nasty. >> i wouldn't call them nasty but i would say that the language i used was more forceful than i would normally take but the tone and the language was very different from what angela was using. >> but if you read those e-mails
8:23 am
as a police officer do you think they would have lead you to be a likely suspect in what was happening with angela diaz. >> i think that the police have a responsibility to do a true thorough investigation regardless of what they suspect off of something speculative. >> we reached out to the anaheim police department for comment. here's what they said. we believe our actions were appropriate based on the evidence known to us at the time. in addition it was the persistent efforts of the detective that ultimately uncovered the truth that lead to michelle's exoneration. how do you feel about that? >> i believe that the police had enough information available to them before they arrested me the first time to know that it wasn't me doing it. >> ironically, angela diaz although she pleaded not guilty, she is being held in the same jail where you spent three months. that's an unbelievable twist. >> yeah. it's very weird to watch the
8:24 am
case from the other side now and having gone through that knowing what it's like. >> did you have any contact with her? did you have any relationship? you never met her? >> no, not before any of this happened. i had no idea who she was and i'm getting a restraining order from her. >> do you have any idea why she had this feeling toward you. >> i have my theories. >> what's your theory. >> well, there was a condo issue and to me it's about the condo because otherwise what threat am i? i was out of the picture. >> you call this the ultimate identity theft. >> the perfect storm of catfishing. >> and you filed a lawsuit. >> yes. well, there's a process in california but we're in that process, yes. >> what do you think the outcome will be and what's the cautionary tale here?
8:25 am
>> michelle's name is being cleared. anaheim is going to have to be held accountable in front of a jury for what they did. what's a cautionary tale? be nice. don't do these things to people. >> i would imagine you're looking forward to getting this behind you. >> yes, very much so. >> i appreciate you telling your story here on the show. thank you very much. good luck to you. >> thank you very much and you can see more of this story tonight on date line. that's at 10:00, 9:00 central here on nbc. let's go to carson. >> thanks, coming up a live performance from these awesome fine folks, little big town and then al and his all star chefs share their secrets all morning long for an amazing breakfast. but first your local news and weather. i'm ...

8:27 am
but two middle lanes, sounds like a motorcycle is involved and i'm waiting to find out about the condition of the driver. this is jamming up traffic north 87 from 85 to that scene. continue over toward highway 17 or take 101 starting to show a little more slowing and you can see that. folks traveling over on the capital express way will join in there, you see the slower drive 101. ripple effect even on this friday, lighter commute for the south bay. also a huge -- we will maintain a lighter flow, that might help. >> thank you, mike. back in 30 minutes with more news.

8:34 am
sturgeon bay. if you want to hear what they think about donald trump, you have to help with the chores first. >> they will come to you. >> reporter: why doesn't he ever say anything bad about putin? >> maybe we need them in the long run to fight radical islam. better to have a few allies in that department than be all alone. we've done this alone for how long? >> reporter: on this farm, the president gets plenty of pasture, even for the controversial travel ban. >> maybe he didn't handle it the right way. but is there ever going to be a right way to handle that. if it keeps us safe. >> reporter: do you think that's in line with our values of the country? >> there's a small group of radicals that makes everyone look bad. >> reporter: these aren't the opinions of a launch republican. brian la plant was a democrat all his life. >> did you vote for obama? >> do i have to admit that?
8:35 am
>> reporter: i think you did. >> i voted for him two times. i was a democrat. now, i don't know what i am. >> reporter: he's still a farmer, up at 4:00 a.m. to milk his herd of 84 cows, a job that doesn't end until the sun goes down. >> you can't just quit this. >> reporter: but brian says leaving the democratic party was an easy choice. >> we thought democrat was for the working people. i don't think that's the case anymore. they forgot about us. >> reporter: hillary clinton didn't come here this year. >> thinking it was a lock. the center of the country is where we work with our hands. we actually got our president this time around. >> reporter: being a woman and supporting trump, people are like, how can you? brian's daughter, holly, helped break the democrats' hold on this family. >> a lot of people like me got this wrong because we got it wrong because we thought that women would be offended by some of the things he said. did any of the things he -- >> no. no. he's just a guy. i don't know how well you guys
8:36 am
know wisconsinites, we like to call it how we call it. he fits well with us. >> he's a business man. and the country should be run like a business. >> reporter: but some of wisconsin's larger dairies worry that this week's sweeping changes to immigration policy could hurt business. john also supports donald trump. but says his dairy can't survive would immigrants. >> the cows need to be milked every day same time. they're filling the void of the jobs people don't want to do anyway. they love their work. they love to work. they make a good living and send money back home. it's a big deal. >> reporter: many of his employees are scared they will be deported. but he still supports the president. >> fix the system so they can fill the zbloobs jobs that we n.
8:37 am
>> reporter: back at the la plant farm, holly is hoping to take over the farm from her dad. she is firm in her support for president trump. what about the tweeting? do you like that he tweets? or do you think he gets himself in trouble? >> it's just his way. he doesn't have to change who he was from previous just because he is now the president. should he try to do things a little differently? yes. but he doesn't have to change who he is. that defeats the purpose of us voting for him in the first place. >> he's ruffling a lot of feathers, which is what we were looking for. i don't know. people just need to give him a chance. we did that with obama. we gave him a chance. now, let's give this guy a chance. >> reporter: what advice do you have for him? >> you any he will call me? >> he might. >> that would be the greatest thing that could happen if we could get him on a small dairy. have him come out and walk around with his boots on, like you.
8:38 am
>> reporter: exit polls show 63% of wisconsin voters had a negative opinion of donald trump on election day. but 21% of those who viewed him unfavorably, voted for him anyway. >> that's fascinating. were those people hoping that trump would come through for him? >> those people felt like someone was speaking to them for the first time. the thing that he said that just struck me, struck a nerve, that people that worked with their hands had been ignored for so long. >> and the perception that democrats would told them down on jobs. now, they have a switch. and they feel like mr. trump was the answer. >> and the heartening piece for his critics is nothing is lost on him. none of his missteps are lost on the voters. >> fascinating stuff. >> thanks. next, how about show breakfast from the likes of martha stewart and katie lee right now? some of the tips of the day coming for you. we'll go back down to florida and al. first, this is "today" on nbc.
