7:05 am
morning. nbc's andrea mitchell has more on that. good morng. >> good morning, matt. it was that conversation, a round table here in west virginia, when the unemployed coal worker pressed clinton hard on comments she'd made about the coal industry earlier this year. remarks, she said, that didn't accurately reflect her efforts to help the area hit hard by job losses. >> reporter: while looking for mine support in trump-friendly coal country, hillary clinton in a rare and candid moment on the campaign trail. >> i do feel a little bit sad and sorry i gave folks the reason or excuse to be so upset with me. that is not what i intended at all. >> reporter: the democratic front runner apologizing to a father of three, bo copley, who recently lost his job at a coal company. >> unfortunately, my circumstance, being here, is not

7:08 am
obituary, but why didn't the stop trump movement get off the ground? >> that is important. trump is selling what the grievance half of the party wants. the big donors don't like trump but they don't love cruz either. give me $3 million to switch from one unpopular outcome to another hasn't been a good pitch. >> let's switch over to the democrats for a second. it's tight in indiana. hypothetically, if bernie sanders loses to hillary clinton there tonight, how does he make the argument to anyone that he's anything but hurting the presumptive nominee? >> that's the box he's in. he's captured the hearts and minds but not the super delegates. even with a few more wins, mathematically, she's in the driver's seat. he doesn't have the power, i believe, to be nominated, but he has the power to make her life hell because of his grip of millenials, which is important for her. >> she wants to move on to the general election and is hiring
7:09 am
battle ground state officials. >> she has to wash the bear without getting the fur wet. push him aside, but don't make an enemy to out of him for the general. >> use an olive branch for his supporters. >> they're fighting for something. i think the clinton campaign better create a fight that doesn't involve her for him. that energy has to do go somewhere. the clinton folks need to move it from anti-clinton on to some policy, something to get his movement something to do, other than blow up the convention with her. >> mike murphy, thank you. >> thank you, mike. appreciate it. breaking news this morning from iraq. defense secretary ash carter announcing an american serviceman has been killed in combat near the northern iraqi city of erbil. he didn't provide any further details, but the u.s. central command added that the serviceman died as a result of enemy fire. last month, secretary carter

first, your local (vo) if you have type 2 diabetes, you may know what it's like to deal with high... and low blood sugar. januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). januvia should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. tell your doctor if you have a history of pancreatitis. serious side effects can happen, including pancreatitis which may be severe and lead to death. stop taking januvia and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area which may be pancreatitis. tell your doctor right away and stop taking januvia if you have an allergic reaction that causes swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or affects your breathing or causes rash or hives. kidney problems sometimes requiring dialysis have been reported. some people may develop severe joint pain.
7:53 am
call your doctor if this happens. using januvia with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. to reduce the risk, your doctor may prescribe a lower dose of the sulfonylurea or insulin. your doctor may do blood tests before and during treatment to check your kidneys. if you have kidney problems a lower dose may be prescribed. side effects may include upper respiratory tract infection, stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, and headache. for help lowering your blood sugar talk to your doctor about januvia. general mills is removing artificial flavors and colors from our cereals. so you can love cereal. again! if you have allergy congestion muddling through your morning is nothing new. introducing rhinocort® allergy spray from the makers of zyrtec®. powerful relief from nasal allergy symptoms, all day and all night. try new rhinocort® allergy spray.

[ cheers and applause ] it's 8:30 now on this tuesday morning. kind of a dreary one in the northeast. but do not worry. we've got better weather on the way. dylan tells us in july. exactly right. out on the plaza this morning, we've got a lot coming up. >> we do. >> colin farrell is here, the star of a new movie that will really get you thinking about romance and relationships. >> look forward to that. plus, mother's day gifts mom will be excited about. cassie post is here to give you better ideas than the same old scarf or whatever else. cute pillow. our best of broadway week rolls on with the amazing cast of "the color purple." next week is our series 100 years of national parks "today", celebrating the park system centennial.
8:31 am
we're going to visit some incredible destinations. on our way, helping you find your park for great summer travel. >> our viewers are also getting in on the excitement. they're sharing photos of their trip. take a look at that. keep them coming with the #national parks today. for more information on the big anniversary, check out i looked at the pictures. people are really great photographers. need to go on vacation with them. >> pretty nice backdrops, too. that helps. >> not too shabby. >> dylan, check of the weather. >> sorry i almost took your eye out. you're a lot taller than me. >> it's okay. i have another one. >> you're right where the umbrella goes. we are going to see a wet day up and down the east coast. the southeast and into the carolinas, could see stronger storms today. especially hail and damaging wind gusts. yesterday, we saw the stronger storms near maryland and virginia. this time, farther south. out in the pacific northwest, we're going to cool things off. we'll see some rain and isolated thunderstorms. any of the storms in the middle of the country shouldn't be severe.
8:32 am
they'll be pretty widely scattered. tomorrow, down into the southeast, florida will have a chance at seeing stronger storms but we'll finally continue to dry things out in texas, arkansas, louisiana, where the flooding is still occurring. the rivers are set to finally start receding by the end of the week. it looks unsettled in the pacific northwest tomorrow again, we have cloudy skies all across the bay area this morning. a live look now at san jose. we will continue to see clouds and some peeks of sunshine into this afternoon. temperatures are still warming up. it's 59 degrees in san jose, 58 in palo alto and livermore at 56 degrees. low 50s for the north bay with highs today reaching 71 degrees in los gatos. san mateo 70 degrees and 60 in presidio. 65 in santa rosa, 67 in oakland and low 70s for the tri-valley. >> and a big class trip from milwaukee, wisconsin. say hello? guys? >> all right, dylan, thank you
8:33 am
so much. if you think dating is tough these days, colin farrell's new movie "the lobster" will make you feel better about everything. he stars as the guy looking for love. if he doesn't find it in 45 days, in his society, he will be turned into an animal. take a look. >> have you thought of what animal you'd like to be if you end up alone? >> yes, a lobster. >> why a lobster? >> because lobsters live for over 100 years. they're blue-blooded, like aristocrats. and stay fertile all their lives. i also like the sea. very much. >> we should mention, "the lobster" won the prize at the 2015 cannes festival. i watched the movie last night. >> how was that? >> i was trying to think of the right word. it's odd and quirky and weird. >> yes. >> how would you describe it? >> all of the above. absu absurd, and odd, and strange. when i read the script, i'd seen the director's work before and was aware there is a continuing theme of oddness and absurdity
8:34 am
in the films he makes. but -- ultimately, i found it quite moving, the script. >> and thought provoking. as i try to explain it, it takes place in a society where if you are not coupled up, you will be -- have 45 days to live in this hotel and find a match or you'll be turned into an animal. >> it's basically ill legal to be single, i suppose. it's something of a distinguishing stigma. if you were in ireland and single, a 30-year-old, in the '70s, especially a woman, people would have thought you had a disease. we are very much a culture of people that are obsessed with finding a couple and a match. i think it's natural, as well. it's human instinct, you want to share your life with someone. but this film takes it kind of to another level. >> the absurd level. part of what you do is go into the forest and shoot loners.
8:35 am
people who haven't found a mate yet. with tranquilizers. >> there is the world of the hotel, where you're sent for 45 days to find a match if you are single. then there are the people who are resistant against that society, and they live in the forest on their own. it's a strange film to try and encapsulate in a few words. >> the other thing that is weird about it -- and you explained it well in the clip -- your guy wants to be a lobster. it's not the first animal i would have chosen. >> me neither, no. no. a bottom-feeding crustacean wouldn't have been my choice. >> which begs the question -- if you had to be turned into an animal -- >> i think a bird of flight, as opposed to a penguin, grounded bird. maybe a falcon. >> we imagined what it might look like. yes, there it is. >> wow. >> and see that makes some sense. >> just like in my dreams. exactly. you've been invading my sleep again, i see. >> we do that. you were at the met gala last night. >> yeah. it was mad. >> how was that? >> it was not a casual affair. it was very high energy. to be honest with you, it was a really lovely evening.
8:36 am
i don't know why i thought it would be a little bit more mad than it was. i had been prepped by many people. that was my first time. it was beautiful. there was a lot to see. >> i know. the fashions were incredible. >> beautiful gowns. fashion gets lost on me at the best of times. but it was lovely seeing that. >> you have a project coming up. you'll be in "fantastic beasts and where to find them," a prequel to the "harry potter" series. people must be flipping out over that. >> it takes place about 80 years before young harold was born. it was a gorgeous script. david yates, who directed the last four "harry potters" directs it. i got a wand. >> the movie "the lobster" is in theaters may 13th. it'll get you thinking. >> thank you. coming up next, do your kids have a digital device addiction? if so, how can you help them? we have practical advice for families. >>
8:37 am
8:38 am
8:39 am
we're back at 8:39. no secret that treens spending more and more time on their mobile devices. but do they feel addicted? >> revealing new report coming out today. nbc's joe fryer got an early look at the findings. >> reporter: in the car, walking down the street, even in the classroom, you see teens who can't seem to put down their mobile devices. but do they feel addicted? 50% of 12 to 18-year-olds surveyed by common sense media say yes. >> and nearly 60% of parents believe their kids are addicted to their phones and mobile devices. another issue we found is that this is a major source of conflict and tension in families. >> reporter: 77% of parents say during family time, kids are distracted by devices and don't pay attention at least a few times a week. it goes both ways. 41% of teens say the same thing about their parents. >> carly, tyler, dinner time! guys, it's dinner time!
8:40 am
hello? >> reporter: alison and brett's kids, carly and tyler, both say they're addicted to their phones. >> they don't watch tv anymore, they don't free-read anymore. it seems like a lot of time is spent that could be used elsewhere. >> reporter: for 16-year-old carly managing her instagram account is like a full-time job. >> you have a lot of followers on instagram? >> yeah. >> how many? >> like 2,500. >> do you yourself worry that using technology too much is a problem? >> yeah. it distracts a lot of, like, schoolwork and just everything. feels like you're in your own little world. >> reporter: jeff runs paradigm, a teen treatment center in malibu, and says calls about teen internet and device addiction is on the rise. >> what young people are supposed to do in adolescence is to find out who they are and experiment. this takes them away from that.
8:41 am
>> reporter: what are parents supposed to do? families should have tech-free zones, like the dinner table, and tech-free times when devices are off limits. teens should be encouraged to handle one task at a time. most importantly, parents should set a good example. >> 56% of the parents surveyed admitted they check their mobile devices while driving. it's obviously very bad role modeling by parents. all of us really need to step back, talk a pause, and then think, how can we change our behavior in a positive way? >> reporter: for 14-year-old tyler duffy, two weeks away at camp every year is enough to learn an important lesson. >> you play with your friends and there are things that are more fun than checking my phone. >> reporter: group entertainment exists for teens beyond their screens. for "today", joe fryer, nbc news, los angeles. >> i'm living in a household with a couple of kids who are way into this. >> the technology keeps changing. it's harder as a parent to keep up with the technology. >> it's true. up next, the right way to say you care. we've got your complete guide to mother's day gifts. first, this is "today" on
