good morning. good morning. breaking overnight, emergency on board. new information this morning about doomed egyptair flight 804. investigators confirming smoke alarms were going off in the front of the plane before it crashed into the sea. this as we're getting our first look at the debris from the plane. live in cairo with the latest on the investigation. the gunman's motive, secret service takes down a man moments after he was spotted with a handgun in plain view as he headed to the white house gates. >> he had a gun out, just in place sight. it wasn't even hidden. >> this morning, what police are saying about what that man was thinking. major break? police in texas asking for the public's help to identify the
5:01 am
driver of this car as they search for the suspect in the murder of a popular fitness instructor. this morning, the latest on that investigation, including what authorities are saying now about the victim's family. and the force is with her. >> that's not me making the noise. it's the mask. [ laughter ] >> the woman who posted that video on facebook showing her laughing hilariously, taking the world by storm. nearly 100 million people in less than two days tickled pink by that infectious laughter. if you'd like to own a mask of your own, good luck with that. saturday, may 21st, 2016. from nbc news, this is "today," live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and welcome to "today" on this saturday morning. i'm craig melvin. >> love that.
5:02 am
i'm sheinelle jones. >> if you're in a bad mood, just watch that video. >> infectious laughter. >> looking forward to that. we just watched it for the first time about ten minutes ago. we watched it four times. >> i think because it's so genuine. she's purely excited. refreshing, isn't it? >> more from her. paris, still reeling from another tragedy. that is our top story and really the breaking news overnight about the investigation into the egyptair crash and what happened in the moments before that plane went down. investigators confirming today smoke alarms were going off before the plane slammed into the mediterranean sea. nbc's chief global correspondent bill neely is in cairo with the latest developments. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. french air accident investigators have confirmed there were serious technical problems. that airbus is driven by
5:03 am
computers. they were failing, smoke the cause. and this morning, the first images of the debris from that plane. as the search widens this morning, grim discoveries. jips plane -- egyptian planes f body parts, as well as other items. flight data was sent pointing to serious problems around the cockpit. sensors on a window went off, one apparently opened. then a smoke sensor in the forward lavatory and then a minute later, smoke in the avionics bay which controls the plane and another window sensor, finally, critically, problems with the pilots' controls and computers. terror or an accident? >> we don't know yet exactly what it is but it's a clear indication something was terribly wrong on flight 804.
5:04 am
>> egyptair says there's nothing to suggest technical problems. >> my first concern is taking care of the passengers. and then we get from our sources the information, we'll be transparent. >> reporter: u.s. search planes have joined the hunt which now covers an area of 5,000 square miles. in a cairo mosque, the bereaved struggle with their loss. this film director lost four members of his family. one of the french dead, pascale hess lost his passport but it was found on the street and he boarded the plane. there is now a national search to find the plane, its flight recorder and answers. at the paris airport, security is even tighter and everyone who had contact with the plane on the grounded is being questioned. it's 74 minutes there, perhaps critical in explaining what
5:05 am
caused it to disappear. for the families, of course, this is torture. the french foreign minister met more than 50 waiting relatives in paris this morning. and he said they showed intense emotion and huge dignity. he reassures them they would be told immediately everything investigators know. but of course that's the problem. there is so little they don't know at the moment. back to you. >> bill neely, thank you. nbc news aviation expert greg feat is a former investigators with the ntsb. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> let's start with the smoke here. that would, of course, indicate there was some sort of fire. the question then becomes what caused the fire? are we talking something electrical or something as simple as a passenger dropping a cigarette in a lavatory or is this another sign there may be, perhaps, something more sinister at work here? >> when you look at the timing of all of the faults that came up, especially with the lavatory
5:06 am
smoke and avionics based smoke, those are in two different places. when you look at the timing, it's very quick. more than likely it is an explosive device or fast-moving or fast-burning fire. electrical fires don't typically burn fast. wiring on airplanes is designed to be self-extinguishing. if somebody were to drop a cigarette in a trash can and catch a paper towel or some toilet paper on fire, it, too, doesn't burn fast and would not set off all those sensors, especially down below the cockpit in the avionics bay. >> how are pilots trained to deal with the fire on board the plane? >> when you look at it, if it is just a genuine fire using your scenario of the lav fire, somebody through a cigarette in there, both the pilots and flight attendants are trained to address that fire using fire extinguishers. other types of fires, if it's an electrical-based fire, they'll pull circuit breakers to relieve
5:07 am
the electrical lines of any energized power. but in this particular instance with all the multiple faults with the window faults, that is the right side window sensors were going off, the avionics bay had smoke. there were other faults, especially with the flight control computers, that suggests that something happened, more of an explosive nature to take out a number of different systems or effect a number of different systems in a very short period of time. >> we are just getting in, in fact, we started getting in pictures of the debris a few moments ago, some of the debris that's been retrieved. what are investigators right now trying to glean from that evidence? >> when they look at that evidence, they're going to, of course, be scouring it for any signs of explosive type material that is tell cal residue, things like that. they'll be looking for pitting or shrapnel strikes, similar to what we looked for in twa 800, mh-317 -- excuse me, mh-17.
5:08 am
there is definitive evidence of an explosion. you'll look for penetration from inside the aircraft out since we suspect that if there is an explosive device it was in the aircraft. they'll be looking at the physical evidence. of course, they'll be lookingal all this fault information that came down through the data link. they'll be trying to ferret out that to see if there's a pattern they can use to determine whether or not this was a rapid building fire or an explosive-type device. >> nbc news aviation expert greg feith. thanks as always, sir. >> you're welcome. evan coleman is an nbc news terrorism analyst and senior partner at flash point. evan, good morning to you. >> good morning. >> more than 48 hours after this. you're quick to point out the fact that usually when a terrorist group takes responsibility it's 12 to 24 hours after the incident. what does that tell you? >> it's not absolute. there have been groups that claim acts like this weeks, months later.
5:09 am
not isis. if we're talking about isis in particular, isis tends to claim credit for major international acts of terrorism within about 24 hours. if you look at the russian airliner in sinai, that was ten hours or less than 12 hours. we've heard nothing from isis, nothing about this. it's not that we haven't heard from them. they've been issuing communique after communique, their actual franchise in egypt has claimed credit for other operations in the last couple of days. they've said nothing about the egyptair airliner. the question is, if they're claiming credit for killing a policeman or blowing up a car, wouldn't it seem that they would want to claim credit for a major international act of terrorism that is garnering tremendous publicity for them? and if they're not, then why? so if it is isis, there is this hanging question. there really is very little chatter going on right now among jihadists talking about this. there's not a lot of information suggesting that a jihadist group was behind this. nobody's claimed credit. >> baffling.
5:10 am
>> it's funny. you say there is no evidence of a technical fault. that's what the investigator is saying. there's no evidence of terrorism either. that leads us to wonder what really caused this. >> there's so much buzz an they were talking about it, the lack of screening, of catering on these airplanes. isis claimed responsibility for taking down the russian jet with the soda can bomb. we've seen the photo where they say this is the bomb. is there any way something like that could have happened? >> it's possible. the question is how did that presumed soda bomb get on this aircraft. in sharm el sheikh, this airport was notorious for having terrible security. isis managed to recruit an insider to put that on board the aircraft. the idea that it would be easy to recruit an insider at charles de gaulle airport, when there are international flights that leave every hour, it's a bit hard to believe.
5:11 am
is it possible? it's possible. it's just the chance is remote. if this was terrorism, is it possible someone snuck this on in another airport that this plane traveled to? >> there's four different airports within 24 hours. >> yes, including tunisia. how would someone sneak on board an explosive device on to this aircraft and know instinctively when that explosive device was going to go off and the aircraft would be between paris and egypt. it could have been between whitrea and egypt. has the significance been for isis? how does that prove the isis mission? there were 60 people on board this plane. most of them were egyptian, sunni muslims. they weren't french nationals. what kind of a target is this for isis or any jihadist group? >> so many more questions than answers this morning. thank you. >> thank you. the fbi, secret service and d.c. police are all still trying to figure out precisely why a man approached the white house friday with a gun in his hand
5:12 am
and refused orders to stop. the secret service gunned him down in front of horrified tourists. the gunman was hospitalized overnight. at last check he was in critical condition. jim miklaszewski has more. >> reporter: the scene at the white house suddenly exploded with shouts of shots fired, secret service officers scrambled to their post. >> there's been a shooting at 17th and 8. >> the suspect, jesse olivieri of pennsylvania was carrying a handgun as he neared a security outpost at the southeast corner of the white house grounds. >> he had a gun out in plane sight. >> reporter: taylor tate said it looked as if he was in a trans. >> like he had a mission and he was just doing that. >> reporter: larry samples said secret service officers repeatedly ordered the man to halt. >> drop your gun. he walked toward the offs. he just kept on walking in. >> reporter: one secret service agent fired a single shot, striking the suspect in the
5:13 am
chest. he was seriously wounded and rushed to george washington hospital. it's only the latest in a long string of bizarre and potentially deadly assaults on the white house. a pilot killed himself when he flew his small plane into the white house. a gunman sprayed the front of the white house with automatic weapons fire. and most recently, an armed fence jumper made it all the way into the white house. >> that was jim miklaszewski reporting there. to the race for the white house and donald trump picking up a big endorsement on friday from the nra. this as his attacks on hillary clinton show no sign of slowing down. nbc's jacob rascon is outside of trump tower here in new york. good morning, jacob. >> reporter: good morning. both rush to define each other as an unacceptable alternative. this morning, they are reaching out to a demographic they both desperately need. >> i just want to thank everybody.
5:14 am
we're going to be working very hard. >> reporter: it's a tough sell for donald trump. promming hispanic voters in a pretaped ad lib video i'm on your side. >> national hispanic christian, three great words. >> reporter: the mostly republican crowd not impressed. >> you're going to like president trump. >> let's pray. >> i've been a person of faith all my life. >> reporter: hillary clinton's pitch more polished and direct. >> you know, we're hearing divisive and dangerous rhetoric in this election. we have a candidate who wants to tear families apart. >> reporter: the front-runners are at war, trump tweeting about crooked hillary at all hours of the day, zero imagination and less stamina, he says, dishonest. at the nra convention in kentucky where trump picked up the gun lobby's endorsement even though he once supported an
5:15 am
assault rifle ban, trump saying the stakes have never been higher for gun owners. >> hillary clinton wants to abolish the second amendment. just remember that. we're not talking about change here. she wants to abolish the second amendment. >> reporter: hillary clinton meanwhile, more direct than ever, tweeting trump is unqualified to be president. >> thank you all. >> reporter: and don't forget about us, bernie sanders and his supporters say. not ready to back down. his rally still drawing thousands. the democrat struggling to unite as more republicans fall in line. >> i was a rubio guy but marco lost. i will enthusiastically support the republican nominee. >> reporter: and donald trump is off this weekend before heading out west for more rallies and his first major fund-raiser, this as his democratic rivals and surrogates are busy campaigning in california, new mexico and florida. >> jacob rascon, thank you. months after giving testimony in a civil case
5:16 am
against your husband, we are getting a first look at what camille cosby had to say about the sexual assault accusations against her husband, bill. as it turns out, there was a lot she refused to talk about. morgan radford is here with more on that. >> reporter: it was interesting not only what he did say but more importantly what she didn't say. while her husband became america's favorite tv dad, camille cosby often shied away from the spotlight. now his wife of more than 50 years and his business manager, camille cosby has been thrust back into the limelight in this civil trial, where several women claimed her husband not only assaulted them but called them liars. >> reporter: camille cosby refused to answer questions nearly 100 times, citing spousal privilege as prosecutors questioned her about the accusations that her husband sexually assaulted seven women. >> we think she has important information to provide to us. >> reporter: on whether her husband acted with a lack of integrity, cosby said i am not answering that.
5:17 am
on whether it was deceitful to pay more than 100,000 today's a woman who may be the product of an extramarital affair that began in the '70s, i do not have an opinion, she said. finally, an admission. it was a big deal then, yes. >> if bill cosby had something to hide, we see his wife in these depositions potentially helping him hide it. if people believe bill cosby and his wife, they may interpret her stonewalling as simply her response to what she sees as an unreasonable witch hunt. >> mr. cosby, you want to say anything? >> cosby repeatedly denied all claims of sexual misconduct. >> there's no response. >> reporter: while his wife, often illusive has stayed in the background. >> at the end of the day, a jury is going to determine who has more credibility, the seven women that we represent or is it bill cosby? >> reporter: more than 40 women have identified themselves as victims. just this week, 26-year-old chloe goens filed a lawsuit
5:18 am
against hugh hefner. he gave sealed testimony on wednesday in a suit filed by judy huff, saying cosby forced her to perform a sex act on him at the playboy mansion in 1974 when she was just 15. allegations against a once gregarious husband and now a virtually silent wife. >> camille cosby remained publicly committed to her husband's innocence. the comedian has five criminal cases still pending. there's a preliminary hearing on tuesday in pennsylvania. cosby is expected to attend. >> morgan radner, thank you. other headlines, mexico approved the extradition of dug lord joachim guzman better known as el chapo. his lawyer plans to challenge
5:19 am
the extradition. investigators searching for the killer of texas fitness instructor terri bevers say her family and friends have been cleared in the case. in the months since her death, the police have received more than 1,000 tips. th they have no suspects but are saying they are looking for the driver of this car. she was murdered inside a church where she was about to teach a fitness class. how about a check of the weather? >> heaviest down through delmarva and in through the baltimore area. the track will be wet for the preakness later on today. the heaviest rain will fall this morning. it will be showery this afternoon. this area of low pressure will continue to move eastward. scattered showers and pockets of heavier rain through the northeast and lingering rain into tonight and tomorrow morning. this is going to exit quickly. temperatures will be running 10 to 20 degrees below average.

5:21 am
for three men united by a common purpose, preserving the legacy of america's fighting men and women. tom, you've been writing about world war ii, talking about it for years now. what does this honor mean for you? >> well, what it really means is that i accept it on behalf of the greatest generation. i mean, it really belongs to them as much as it does to me, because it's a tribute to them. and when i wrote the book, it was at a time when no one was paying attention to that generation, in part because they didn't raise their hands and say, look at me, look at me. >> i'll see you on the beach! >> reporter: in "saving private ryan," tom hanks also sought to tell that generation's stories and to bring a sense of humanity to his portrayal of captain john miller. the film is required viewing for french infantry troops to learn what it took to free a continent. >> i came across an anecdote that someone said about their captain. this gentleman had a captain who would read a letter from his
5:22 am
wife once, and then he would tear it up in a million pieces and scatter it into the wind. and he asked this captain, well, how could you do that with a letter from your wife? and he says, because it's here and it's here, and that's all that matters. >> reporter: all three men worked tirelessly to bring the world war ii museum to life. >> museums are obviously about remembering history, but also writing history, remembering history in a certain way. how would you think people should remember world war ii? >> the american spirit made a difference. our innovation, our ingenuity, and the fact that we were fighting for our democracy. we want people to remember the strength of america, how america could come together. >> reporter: all three were presented with flags that flew over the american cemetery in normandy, a symbol of the lasting bond between two nations, partners through history facing challenges today. for "today," richard engel, nbc news, paris. >> we all admire tom brokaw.

5:36 am
and again, even though we could see strong storms from texas all the way up into north dakota with some isolated 2-inch-diameter hail possible, it's not going to be everywhere in this zone, but some of those storms could be strong and they could produce a few isolated tornadoes. . , those are the two zones to >> we've got our own zones to watch. i'm meteorologist anthony slaughter. we're looking at showers moving in from the north and west, expected to make its way through the bay area as we go through the day. right now mostly cloudy, temperatures are cool and it's going to stay cool today in the 40s and 50s right now. 47 in the north bay, 54 san francisco, and later on today not going to move much, san francisco, 61 degrees, 66 south bay, 62 east bay and the tri-valley cool as well, only topping out at 66 and showers are expected on and off through the day. >> and that's your latest forecast. >> where are you going, dylan? >> i couldn't resist. my husband has been jealous all night when he knew this was going to be here. >> now, why is this so great?

"angry birds" for families, people who played the game, "we have neighbors 2," a rare comedy sequel that's actually pretty good. my recommendation is "night
6:35 am
skies." think "lethal weapon x." it's from the same writer. it features the latest ryan gosling sitting on a toilet sequence that will ever exist in cinema history. >> we should note, "the neighbors 2" is from our sister company, nbc universal. >> let's break it down by category. what if you love love? you want a good love story? >> maybe for you, this is what you need to see, based on the popular book about a small town woman who falls for the paraplegic man she's taking care of. if you're looking to get your ugly cry on, don't even bring the tissues, you've got to paper towel role, that's this movie. for the sappy romantics out there, myself included, highly recommend "me before you." >> what about the blockbusters. >> we have x-men, teens, legend of tarzan, "star trek beyond."
6:36 am
i'm most looking forward to "x men: apocalypse," only because it's a culmination of six x-men films that began in 2000. if you're an x-men fan, you're required by law to see this movie. and also jason bourne, because matt damon is back and teasing this big chase sequence on the las vegas strip that looks pretty insane. and my most anticipated is "suicide squad," because it's a about a bunch of bad guys. i've got a little crush on margo. >> just a little bit? >> just a little one. goodness, there are so many. let's stick to the categories and talk about comedy. >> i feel like this is going to be the summer for the comedy. a lot of strong contenders, "popstar," this looks hilarious. "central intelligence" starring dwayne johnson and kevin hart. great for anybody who reunited with an old friend on facebook and then you realized they're a complete lunatic. also "ghostbusters" got a great female ensemble. "bad moms" is like "mean girls"
6:37 am
for moms. there are already people in my town planning group outings to "bad metropolis." >> how about for kids? good ones for kids? >> we have an "alice and wonderland" sequel, "alice through the looking glass," "finding dory," it's another slam dunk for them. my most anticipated, "the secret life of pets." this is from "despicable me" and "minions" people. it follows the adventure of our pets when we leave the house. i'm a dog owner, so this one speaks to me or howls to me. >> and "the secret life of pets" is also from our sister company, universal pictures. >> and documentaries, i have a feeling one will be a talker. >> there is, it's called "weiner" and it follows anthony weiner's failed mayoral campaign. we've never been this close to a political scandal before. i think it's a tremendous doc. i would be shocked if it's not on the short list for the oscar at the end of the year. that's how good it is.

we have some great ways for you to enjoy all of the latest tech gear, some quick getaways. but we are going to begin with nbc medical contributor dr. natalie azar. we'll talk about how to protect yourself from the sun and the strong rays. good morning to you. >> good morning, sheinelle. >> i feel like the first question should be about rep reapplying sunscreen. we just don't do it. >> no. it should be reapplied every two hours, no matter the strength. whether it's spf-30 or spf-50, it's every two hours, but also, remember to apply 15 to 20 minutes before you get out in the sun. and a big thing people have to remember, especially with their kids, after swimming or sweating, you have to reapply more frequently than every two hours in that instance. >> really? >> yes. >> more than every two hours? >> if you're sweating or swimming? yep. even if it's water-resistant. you don't want to take a chance. >> it's interesting. we went on vacation last week. i underestimated the amount of options that we have these days. >> yeah. >> sprays, creams. do you have one that you prefer? >> personally, i prefer spray for me and for my kids with a little bit of a caveat there. i do prefer it because it's just
6:41 am
easier and i can chase them around with it and i feel like i reapply more frequently because it's just easier. but a few issues about the spray are this -- if you're spraying into the wind and you're not rubbing it in, you may not be getting it uniformly. and secondly, there are concerns that the fda is looking into as far as inhalation with children. >> oh. >> i wouldn't want my children applying it yourself. you can spray it into your hand and put it on the child's face yourself. >> there was something that got our attention. the fda found that half of the sunscreens didn't meet their spf claims on the bottle. >> yes, very news-worthy and perfectly timed for our segment and for the summer. consumer reports found that 30% failed to meet what they put on their bottle. basically, they'll claim that they have a certain spf and they found it was much lower, consistent with findings that they had been having for the last number of years. there have been some concerns raised i think that are sort of legitimate about the methodology
6:42 am
that the consumer reports used, but the statement from the american academy of dermatology is still to use an spf of 30. i will tell you that after reading the article myself, i thought i'm going to err on the side of caution and go with an spf of 50 just in case. you know, that was my interpretation of it thus far. >> and you're the doctor, so we'll take it. dr. azar, thank you for coming in this morning. >> thanks, sheinelle. swim safety is also important this time of year. join dr. azar and the nbc news health team and the cdc on monday at noon for tips on healthy and safe swim season. you can join the conversation using #healthyswimchat. now let's send it over to craig. >> sheinelle, thank you. jason tans is editor at large of "wired" magazine. he's rounded up some of the must-have summer tech gadgets and apps. jason, good morning to you, sir. >> good morning, craig. >> let's start with this. this looks really cool. it's for folks who might be going on a hiking trip, might be going to the beach for the weekend. this helps lighten the load a bit. >> what's better at the end of a long hike than a cool beer?
6:43 am
>> amen to that. >> but you don't want to bring a six-pack on a hike. it gets warm, it's heavy, it's pretty disgusting at the end of the hike. this is from backcountry beverages. and what they have is a system where with any fresh water source, basically, you add this flavor packet and activator, and you can get carbonated, fresh beer. >> that's cool. >> yeah. so, the syrup is super highly concentrated, like 50% alcohol, but when you but it in the water, it gets down to 5%. shake it up, they've got a porter, a lager, and there's more coming. >> time to get your playlist ready for the backyard barbecue, for another trip to the beach. >> yes. >> any music-sharing apps we should be looking at? >> in fact, yes. let's say you have friends over and you're stressed out about the playlist, right? you don't know which songs to put on. this is a music app called flo. and it allows you to create, basically, everybody links together into one common playlist, and anybody can add songs to that playlist in realtime and you can just create a whole party playlist.
6:44 am
and the other cool thing about it -- >> that's cool. >> it is cool. and the other cool thing is if you have a bluetooth speaker, it can go through one phone, but if not, it will play simultaneously through everybody's phone at the same time. >> and this is something i have. >> oh, you do? >> yeah. when you're firing up the grill late at night. >> yeah, firing up the grill or again, camping or mountain climbing. this is called the snow peak mola head lamp. the problem with head lamps, they're great, but you really crane your neck. if you're looking at a map, you don't normally bend that much. so, this tracks your eye movement and goes down further than your head. so you can tilt the normal amount and the lamp will go down or up as well. that's the snow peak mola headlamp. >> thank you. dylan has great getaways for us. >> that's right. if you want to get out of town next week, you don't have to spend a lot.
