7:09 am
an air strike killing a palestinian military leader from one of two factions there. this one from islamic jihad, they responded immediately, firing dozens of rockets toward israel israel using the iron dome rocket defense system to knock down most of them, but also shutting down public transport, sending people into evacuation shelters israeli officials say they don't want this to escalate into a fu full-blown war, but that could happen, especially if one of those rockets hits the tel aviv airport, hits jerusalem, or hits a site causing many israeli casualties it has the potential to escalate quickly. >> richard engle for us there. richard, thank you savannah president trump is entering what could be the most consequential week of his presidency with the first public hearings of the impeachment investigation getting underway tomorrow a pair of senior state department officials are set to testify on national television including the top diplomat in
7:10 am
ukraine. and on friday, the former u.s. ambassador to ukraine is scheduled to testify as well the president continues to tweet about all of it referring to impeachment yesterday as a scam, and in the meantime, condoleezza rice, former secretary of state under george w. bush is weighing in saying it is out of bounds for a u.s. president to mention an american citizen, in this case, joe biden, to a foreign leader with all of that as the backdrop, we turn to nikki haley. she served as president trump's ambassador to the united nations with us for her first live interview. she's also written a new book called "with all due respect," good morning ambassador haley, it is great to see you. >> good to be with you >> we're about to have public impeachment hearings begin you mentioned recently in an interview you don't think the president's conduct with regard to ukraine is impeachable.
7:11 am
have you made up your mind >> i have made up my mind. impeachment is literally the worst punishment you can do to a public official and here you've got a situation where there was no investigation, and the aid flowed as it was supposed to when you look at that situation, it's hard to see where impeachment would qualify for that. >> can i stop you right there because that, with all due respect to borrow a phrase, that doesn't seem like much of a defense of the president, that he might have tried to do those things but it didn't work out, so it's all okay >> i mean, impeachment is serious. it's the most serious thing you can do to a president. the other side of this is we are less than a year away from the election instead, let the people decide let them hear the testimony that's fine. but let them decide. >> it's serious, no question about it the people will get to weigh in in a year. but let's talk about -- let's just set aside that issue of impeachment. let's talk about the conduct here, and whether you think it's appropriate. let's think only to the undisputed facts i have the transcript of the call in question that the white house itself released. so this is not in any controversy. let's talk about that, and that alone.
7:12 am
the president has said this was a perfect call do you think this was a perfect call >> in his mind he thinks it was a perfect call. >> what do you think >> i think it's never a good practice for us to ask a foreign country to investigate an american just not a good practice having said that, there's no insistence on that call. there are no demands on that call it is a conversation between two presidents that's casual in nature, and you know, it's just hard to find anywhere that the president of ukraine would have thought funds were being held and that he had to do this. >> well, i mean, as a backdrop and you among all people know how important these funds are to ukraine. you were one of the leading voices on behalf of ukraine against russian aggression they always know the funding of their military is hanging over their heads, do they not >> they also know that president trump has been very strong for ukraine by giving anti-tank missiles, going against russia, holding the sanctions. >> the aid was on hold at that moment the aid did go on hold
7:13 am
it eventually was released. >> you can have those hypotheticals. it was released. that's a fact. >> the aid was held up that is not a hypothetical. >> was the aid released, it was. >> okay. you know, one of the things when we talk about the call, and you said, you know, i think i won't put words in your mouth, you said it's not advisable to have someone asking, a president asking for a political favor like that, asking for an investigation into an american citizen. you know, i went back actually looked at your resignation letter, and you said through it all, we were always placing america first. how is asking a foreign country to investigate your political rival putting america first? whose interest is that in, is it in america's interest or the president's personal interest. >> ukraine has always been an issue with corruption. that was the case that we always knew that there was corruption involved >> but the corruption mentioned by the president here has to do with joe biden and the dnc server those are the two very specific
7:14 am
examples >> americans should want to know the answer of did biden pressure the prosecutor to, you know, to do what he did, and i think there's a real question there. you can question the president but you also have to question what biden did. >> there may be questions there, but let me ask you this -- let's do a weighing of interest. as between america's interest and making sure ukraine is able to battle the aggression of russia, our adversary as you well know, and whether there's a u.s. interest in looking into joe biden's son and the dnc server, which is the greater interest >> you can't put it into that and make sure that's equal you have to look at the fact is we should ask was biden's position abused. the same way you're looking at the president, you have to look at biden, and not only that, savannah, president trump was so strong on ukraine, he had stronger policy on ukraine than president obama did. so this was a strong relationship the ukrainian ambassador was one of my closest allies on the security council.
7:15 am
>> let's talk about another explosive story that you have in your book where you talk about how then chief of staff john kelly and rex tillerson, then the secretary of state, came to you at one point and pulled you aside and said they were trying to, quote, save the country and actively working to resist the president. can you tell us what happened in that moment? >> yeah, we were having a meeting within the oval office, rex and i disagreed on an issue. i play it all out in the book, but basically we went to john kelly's office, and it was a long two-hour meeting where they basically said that they were not trying to undermine the president. they were trying to save the country. but this was the issue is this wasn't that they thought there was a rogue president in the white house. this was the fact that they disagreed with him on policy they didn't think we needed to move the embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. they didn't think we needed to get out of the iran deal >> you say in the book, these were dangerous people. you write that in the book >> i mean, i was a governor.
7:16 am
and if people in my cabinet tried to undermine me, it's very dangerous. >> did you say that right then and there to them, hey, guys, this is way out of line. >> they totally knew that i was not going to be with them. >> did you say that? >> it was very aware >> and did you tell the president afterwards, hey -- >> i told them, if this is what the president wanted and especially we were talking about the issue of palestinian aid that we needed to do that. >> did you say to the president, hey, you got two guys working against you. >> the president was aware, yes. >> you told him? >> yes. >> you did tell him. >> yes >> i look at what you have said about tillerson and kelly, you said they're dangerous people. you said they were pursuing a policy agenda, that they weren't really trying to save the country. i think about general john kelly, he spent more than four decades in uniform, he lost his son in battle. you write it very dramatically, you say what is at stake is the u.s. constitution itself no disagreement with the
7:17 am
president no matter how heartfelt justifies undermining the constitution john kelly lost his own son in battle he knows what it is to take an oath to the constitution did he deserve a better or more generous assessment from you >> first of all, i didn't call them dangerous people. what i said is what they were trying to do is dangerous. i have always referred to john kelly as a patriot i am a military wife i respect him and his family for what they went through but to undermine a president because you think you know better than him is wrong it's wrong whether it's a republican president or a democrat president and at that point if you disagreed with getting out of the iran deal, if you disagreed with moving our embassy or getting out of the paris climate agreement, go tell the president. if you still don't like it, quit >> you mentioned a couple of times in your book, you yourself did confront the president over a couple of matters. you mentioned in particular, his news conference with vladimir putin in helsinki where he cemented to side with putin over
7:18 am
the conclusion of our own intelligence agencies about russia's meddling in the election you say you called the president, you said i told him you made it sound like we are beholden to russia and the president was surprised, no one around him characterized the press conference in that way i was always honest with the president even when others around him weren't really you were the only person i mean that news conference was globally condemned because of that moment, but you were the only person in the administration who said, hey, that didn't look so great. >> that's what he told me. i mean, when i said i wanted to meet with him, and i go through that in the book, when i said i wanted to meet with him, and i said, look, this sounded soft, and he said, really, john kelly was in the room with me when i had this meeting, and he looked at john, and he said all of you guys said i did great. >> this is the same john kelly who you say is actively working to undermine him because he's a danger to the country. how's that work? explain that. >> you ask him those questions because i had openly said i know how you feel about russia.
7:19 am
he has been stronger on russia than any previous president, and you can look at numerous results of that. but the issue was that on that topic, no one had said anything to him and i thought it was hugely important, and you'll see later he comes out and he comes out much stronger on russia, and the point is, when i had my cabinet, what i asked my cabinet was be creative, help serve the people, and tell me if you see something wrong. i did for him what i wanted my cabinet to do for me. >> i am way over time, but let me just quickly because it's been out there and you worked in this administration. did you ever have any doubt about the fitness of this president? >> i never did. >> any doubt about his mental acuity. >> i never did. >> any question about his truthfulness, his ability to tell the truth >> savannah, i talked to him multiple times and when i had issues he always heard me out. i never had any concerns on whether he could handle the job, ever. >> and what about his truthfulness, did you think he
7:20 am
was a truthful person? >> yes, in every instance that i dealt with him, he was truthful, he listened and he was great to work with. >> ambassador haley, thank you so much, there are some interesting stories in this book it's out today "with all due respect. thank you. >> thank you. we're going to turn back to mr. roker, a lot of people paying attention to the forecast. >> let's give you a quick look at what's going on around the rest of the country. record lows in the central part of the u.s lake-effect snows, especially in the pacific northwest. we're looking at wet weather as well we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds.. wanna go to the gym? uh, it's too expensive. actually, our unitedhealthcare medicare plans come with renew active, a gym membership and more, at no extra cost. i'm not a workout kinda guy. you get a personalized fitness plan. i'm exercising my brain. and an online brain health program. i need workout clothes? they have tvs here too. renew active, only from unitedhealthcare medicare including the only plans with the aarp name.

7:51 am
it's raining and the tourists are complaining because many people don't realize when they go to see the great mona lisa inside the louvre, it's actually quite a small painting and this morning tlrl calls for the painting to be moved or for perhaps people to stop being allowed to take selfies or to regulate the amount of people so when you go to see the mona lisa, you actually get to see the mona lisa. she's the louvre's most famous resident, smiling enigmatically for 500 years, leonardo da vinci's mona lisa, her face adorns a world of memorabilia, and she's on millions of bucket lists. >> if you come to paris, you come to see the mona lisa. >> reporter: with visitor numbers up to 30,000 a day, mona mania has tour guides concerned about safety. >> the line zigzags all the way back

7:53 am
trail tour and as for what leonardo da vinci, the man behind the painting, would make of all this >> he would be rather proud that his painting has become such an icon. >> reporter: while the mona lisa will just grin and bear it guys, here's our exclusive "today" show hack, if you don't have the money to come here and see the mona lisa, get yourself a copy like that, a selfie, and you're good. >> keir, thank you. just ahead, harry smith sitting down with oscar winners matt damon and christian bale, he's going to talk about their new film coming up after your local news and some weather. i didn't have to run for help. and i didn't have i didn'tto come get you.1. because you didn't have another heart attack. not today. you took our conversation about your chronic coronary artery disease to heart. even with a stent procedure, your condition can get worse over time, and keep you at risk of blood clots.
7:54 am
so you added xarelto®, to help keep you protected. xarelto®, when taken with low-dose aspirin, is proven to further reduce the risk of blood clots that can cause heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular death in people with chronic cad. that's because while aspirin can help, it may not be enough to manage your risk of blood clots. in a clinical trial, almost 96% of people taking xarelto® did not have a cardiovascular event. don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular death. while taking, a spinal injection increases the risk of blood clots which may cause paralysis- the inability to move. you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. enjoy every moment-and help protect yourself from an unexpected one, like a cardiovascular event.
7:55 am
are you doing enough? ask your doctor if it's time for xarelto®. to learn more about cost and how janssen can help, visit hi susan!) honey? yeah? i respect that. but that cough looks pretty bad... try this robitussin honey. the real honey you love... plus the powerful cough relief you need. mind if i root through your trash? robitussin honey. because it's never just a cough.

>> all right, al, thank you so much this morning in her first live interview since stepping down as ambassador to the united nations, nikki haley told us she does not believe the president's july phone call with the leader of ukraine qualifies him for impeachment, but she did have some criticism. >> i think it's never a good practice for us to ask a foreign country to investigate an american it's just not a good practice. having said that, there's no insistence on that call. there are no demands on that call it is a conversation between two presidents that's casual in nature, and you know, it's just hard to find anywhere that the president of ukraine would have thought funds were being held and that he had to do this. >> haley also talked about a meeting where she says former secretary of state rex tillerson and former white house chief of staff general john kelly tried to recruit her to resist the president behind the scenes on policies they disagreed with while they were at the white house. >> did you say to the president later, hey, you got two guys working against you. >> the president was aware, yes. >> you told him? >> yes. >> you did tell him?

8:14 am
know, i think she was ready, they were ready, and when they decided -- and now she's so experienced with it. she's right here too, but she was so experienced with it she was kind of like expecting something different, i think and she said to the midwives, no, we have time, i'm laying in bed watching tv. and i was like you guys should come over, and they started coming over, and by the time they got there, me and my mom were holding the babies. >> you delivered your children >> what? >> you delivered your own children with your mother? >> yeah, and luckily my mom was a midwife but she hadn't delivered babies in 20 plus years, and she had never delivered twins, and we're both pretty relaxed and casual but we were certainly not qualified to be doing this unassisted home delivery of twins. >> to add another layer to this whole thing, i heard your dad was out at costco, he must have come home and been like, oh, my gosh, what went on here. >> i hope you got the big tub of

only child and she has a group of sisters that she travels to national parks with and they make her feel brave and she can hike and do all these things at age -- how old is she? >> in her 70s. >> that's what sisterhood is whether it's blood sisters or friend, pretty special. >> we are lucky to get to know both of you over the years it's not automatic that sisters would be best friends. i wish it would be, but it's not automatic, and yet the two of you are such an example of that. you really live it every day and you're so loyal to each other, love each other so much. what did your mom do right to make that relationship work? >> and your dad too. >> i don't need him mad at me. >> they never compared us. >> no, they really encouraged us to be who we were, and be good at what we wanted to be good at, pursue individuality in that way. i think something that i was struck by with the girls we spent time with at the color factory, they were so quick to say why they loved each other. when we asked them to say what they loved they jumped immediately to raise their hand
8:23 am
and share something. >> and that love is inherent that's how we are born we loved each other from the moment, did we chase each other around the house with a baseball bat, i might have. but that love was still there. >> how did you overcome like when something great happened for your sister, i know you're happy for her but sometimes with sisters, i know this with my own too, you want to be there all the time, but sometimes sisters go on different paths. i just watched, even when we were doing that segment over there, you all were eye locked together, almost nose to nose. i was looking over there and said look at those two, even here >> i think because our parents, barbara went to yale, and when i was applying for college, i was like, dad, look what i found on this brochure, i can go to stanford, if barbara gets in, they have a twin policy, they'll let me in. my dad was like, do not ruin her chances. but they made us feel like even though i didn't have a perfect math s.a.t., i was still worthy of her love, and she made me
8:24 am
feel like that and all of those sisters could think of a thousand reasons why their sisters mean the world to them and barbara always made me feel like that. she was my champion when good things happened and when my heart broke or her heart broke, i was there for her. >> how much of mila and poppy are on those pages >> a lot of them they are definitely our muses. >> when poppy was born, mila goes, mommy, poppy is going to rule the world i loved that she wasn't comparing and i thought for a second, maybe she could. maybe poppy could be president, and mila thought for a second, and she goes, but mom, all presidents are men and first my heart broke and i got enraged at henry because he was sitting there, and he was a man. we have to get her enrolled in gifted and talented. she's a genius that's what we want for all sisters, no matter who they are,
8:25 am
where they're born you want to feel like somebody thinks you're good enough to do whatever you want to do. >> it's such a sweet book, the memoir is beautiful. buy them as a package. >> can you do sisters and brothers for charlie >> and hal. >> we're going to see you again in our next hour, and of course on the fourth hour. >> the hoda and jenna show >> how did it feel to be back, was it amazing >> it was really wonderful >> i know. >> how good is it to come home. i'm going to cry again >> you can find more on "sisters first" on harry smith's conversation with matt damon and christian bale on their friendly rivalry and working together for the very first time, after your local news

8:37 am
with matt damon and christian bale about their new movie. >> you remember the piece martin scorsese wrote in the paper about a week or so ago about big movieing and how hard it is to make big movies unless they are based on a comic book character that they can do as a franchise. well, this is the antithesis of this and well, we'll let them tell the story. it is a funny movie, us against them, and it is very vroom just individually as you viewed your work on this film, what did you think the movie was about? >> it's about this friendship and about, i mean, for me, my way in because i'm not a car person was i really could relate to this idea of getting together with a group of people to work on something and putting all your effort and energy into it. >> whatever it is shell, no. >> trust me. >> based on a true story, ford wanted to enter the international road racing
8:38 am
circuit in the worst way, so they hired carol shelby played by damon to make it happen he knew he could not do it without ken miles, played by christian bale neither of them fit the corporate profile. >> misfits here, completely unrealistic dreamers actuall managed to succeed with that the relationship between ken miles and shelby was that shelby was able to see this incredible talent within ken miles, but ken kept shooting himself in the foot all the time throughout his career shelby going listen to me, i know how to get you there. >> ken is out of line. >> i'm just doing my job. >> i understand you are. you know how he gets on race day. you know that, but you're not going to dq us over it. >> and this wonderful bond between them, two people that have a shared goal >> there's sort of an old
8:39 am
fashioned quality to it in terms of the bigness of it, and what it feels like. >> it was like a movie movie. >> right >> not a little movie. >> yeah. >> it's just that they're not making movies about people kind of on this scale anymore like the idea that you would make just a movie that's never going to be a franchise. there's never going to be a part two. like this is it. it's so risky nowadays because there's no dvd coming behind the movie anymore, so there's this whole revenue stream that's gone it's a really tough bet for these studios now. so we don't get scripts like this very often. >> "ford versus ferrari" is that big movie. but the key element is chemistry. these two have it in spades. >> you guys share the same agent? >> yeah. >> for how long, decades >> yeah. >> but they had never worked together. >> we would bump into each other, i would know what christian was up to. i've always watched christian's work >> and laughed afterwards.
8:40 am
>> batman, what are you thinking >> mostly our relationship is matt is going to pass on this film, oh, god, we'll go to bale. >> and then you would win an oscar for it, that's usually the way it works. >> not a bad way to work. >> it's really good. i'm like the canary, sitting there, going christian, do this one. they're going to give you more awards >> in this film, bale does that thing bale does when he completely inhabits a character, think "vice" or "american psycho" or "the fighter" for which he won an oscar. >> when you see him work in this film, what impresses you >> there's nothing superficial about it, and that's what it's like watching him work up close. it was really fun for me because he's just completely in it and committed and has got incredible discipline and commitment. >> when he's in character or when you're on a set after a scene is shot, can you talk to him as christian bale or is he the guy?
8:41 am
>> he's not crazy. >> there are actors who are like that >> i know, but for him, he stays in the physicality and the voice, right, we can have conversations. he doesn't go like i'm ken miles, who's christian bale. that would be completely mad >> that could be a lot of fun. >> that would just be crazy. >> i don't know who that is. >> there's a limit to how far i can take it, but can't jump in the car and just never come back, you know what i mean, you always have to remember -- >> i peeled out. >> i'm gone. yeah >> damon has been a movie star since "goodwill hunting" films like "the martian" have set him apart as few who can hold the screen all by themselves so when it came time for a fight scene, it was hard not to think batman versus bourne >> we were talking about that,
8:42 am
the way i would fight with my brother growing up is there's this kind of invisible line that you kind of intuitively know what it is, and when you cross it, it was kind of that kind of fight, a very silly fight scene but it was a lot of fun shooting it. >> after doing all the bourne stuff and batman stuff where we've got to try to look capable, it was lovely to do a fight scene where we actually looked pathetic. >> there's not a winner of the fight. it just kind of peters out they both get tired. >> that's enough >> go to hell. >> so these are real guys. did you go back and like, did you go back and look. >> i watched a lot that was helpful to get what he sounded like, and what he looked like he wasn't afraid to give an interview. >> the rest is in the record books. >> he's not that well known. >> cheney. >> yeah, if you're somebody who's in the news every day, that's a very different thing.
8:43 am
>> this feels so weird to hear someone say hcheney and point a me >> for the rest of your life >> very cool stuff thanks for taking the time. >> absolutely, thank you >> very nice >> it's too bad those guys didn't come to play. >> so boring. >> so interesting because this movie comes right on the heels of "vice." christian bale gained all that weight, then he lost that weight and lost another 30 pounds 70 pound swing between "vice" and this movie. >> how was the film? >> loved it. loved it. >> man, they click you can tell >> and you know what, so much of it, it's back in the '60s, ford is this very staid, buttoned down kind of company we're going to get in the racing business and there's only one guy to go to and these guys are not -- that combination of corporate versus maverick, and if they're going to get this thing done or not, there's a lot of tension in there. it feels like, you know, we're up against those dudes, i like
8:44 am
that. >> and vroom vroom my 3-year-old is going to love that. >> it's a movie theater movie. >> got to see it a lot of sound. >> i like the sound of that from harry. >> thank you >> opens this friday and you can check out this entire interview on, see all of harry's magic in action. >> coming up, the big push to get people to put their phones away and enjoy the moment. but just how hard is it to fight that siren call, we're going to find out firsthand, but first, this is "today." >> one, two, and three, everybody. >> areou guys going to do it y
8:45 am
8:46 am
we are back with stay tuned today. harry stuck around as we spotlight a surprising growing tech trend and it's called putting your phone away. >> big trend >> tech trends and we bring out savannah sellers, host of nbc's "stay tuned" she's here with more. this is a little scary
8:47 am
>> craig, you're going to be participating with me. 96% of americans pretty much all of us own a cell phone, and increasing evidence suggests the time we spend on those devices is increasing but we found a growing group of people attempting to turn away from that trend using app incentives and pouches like these to lock up their phones. i'm going to put craig's in here just for the duration of the segment. can you handle it? you cannot open it in case of emergency we'll let you have it. but otherwise -- >> for how long. >> just for the segment, a couple of minutes. >> buzzes, beeps, and dings, you're not alone the iphone was introduced only 12 years ago, yet the average american looks at their smartphone 52 times a day. critics say real life relationships are being replaced by digital ones. now a device-free movement is attempting to buck that trend, starting small at home and moving to shows and events, trying to force others to live in the moment.
8:48 am
this school in california now asks all 1,700 students to lock up their phones before heading to class. >> i love not having my phone, to be honest. >> at weddings you'll often hear something like this announced to the crowd. >> take a moment to silence and put away all of your electronic devices. >> please have your cell phones out and turned off or on silent or vibrate >> and one broadway show wants to close the curtain on distractions lin-manuel miranda requiring guests to lock up their phones before taking their seats. even local businesses are getting inspect on the trend, like this news jerz restaurant featuring reconnect tuesdays, where you get 20% off your bill if you keep your phone in this bucket during the meal >> we put our phones in here. >> we have to do that for the interview. so phones go in. there's going to be a little separation anxiety but you'll get used to it manager stacy says restaurants with similar deals are popping up across the country. >> it's been a nice boost for the restaurant of bringing
8:49 am
people in, and people literally walk in and be like take my phone, here it is. >> so you've actually seen like a boost in business on reconnect tuesdays. >> absolutely. we have seen repeat customers coming in specifically for that day. >> is it nice on days that you don't even have the option to look at your phone, you've got to come up with things to talk about together. >> now that we don't have the option of looking at them at all, you kind of realize that it's a little bit different of an atmosphere. >> madden, ishmael and victoria have reconnected over dinner multiple times. >> was it difficult? >> no. >> you think it's going to be difficult, and then, yeah, it was fun. >> it's almost liberating when you actually start to do it, and actually put your phone away for real, during a meal in particular. >> proving that putting your phone away can bring as much of a buzz as actually using it. >> so etiquette experts say it's okay to be on your phone if
8:50 am
you're eating alone. otherwise you should be engaging with those around you. and general guidelines at home, stay off the phone during any type of social interaction if you really need to communicate with someone who's not there, you can excuse yourself, send a message and then return so you're not doing it in front of people. if someone is on their phone too much, don't confront them during the interaction but mention it politely at the end for next time >> craig has the shakes over here. >> how we doing? >> you know what, i got to be honest with you, kind of liberating. >> you were so engaged. >> you should keep it all day. >> silicon valley, they have phone fasts where people who work there basically go 24 or 48 hours at a time without their phones because they say it ups their creativity >> yeah. >> will bosses let you do that i feel like with e-mails you always have to be -- >> i'm on a phone fast, i need to be smart. >> there's an app that i use, it's called checking, and i use it to gauge how often i'm using the phone. >> absolutely.
8:51 am
>> a screen time app in the iphone >> i find the other one to be a little simpler, and i compete with myself. >> and there are certain apps, one called pocket points which is cool, in the home or in the classroom, even just at home, you can set up certain types of rewards. for enough time that you don't spending on your phone, you can get free things, like chick-fil-a things >> are you proud. >> every time she comes on the air, just crushes. >> my first job, his assistant >> craig, this is vibrating. >> you can see more of savannah on "stay tuned" on, instagram, snapchat, tiktok >> that's ironic. >> don't look at your phones >> we're back, by the way, with big news to reveal about the golden globes. it's right after this. but first, this is "today" on nbc. nbc. my parents never taught me anything about managing money.
