the announcement came from north korean television saying they had debt naded a hydrogen bomb. this is significant if true. they said this was in response to u.s. aggression. this is a typical propaganda line from the north korean government, especially in. moscow saying they are extremely worried about this latest test. north korea has tested nuclear devices in the past. they have done it three times now in the past nine years. the last test in 2013 but those were all atomic bombs. a hydrogen bomb much more technologically sophisticated.
the south koreans are saying today they believe this was yet another atomic bomb test. but dara, it will take several weeks for international experts to figure out exactly what happened here. >> thank you for those details. back here in the u.s. president obama is reignites an age old battle with congress. he tlooibs his new gun control executive order and calls out law makes for their inaction. tracy potts is live in washington. conservatives are hitting back. >> they are. and we've got reaction to the preside president's at times tearful speech yesterday. he's decided to go it alone on this gun issue. admitting that there are some things he may not be able to do.
>> every time i think about those kids it gets me mad. >> the nra is calling president obama's tearful speech an emotional condescending lecture. republicans aren't thrilled either. >> once again we've seen the president overstep his executive authority. and every time he has done this it has not ended well. >> there is only so much mr. obama can do. >> there is no change at all in the law. the president simply restated the law since 1968. >> the white house gearing up for a fight on that and obamacare. tonight the house votes again to dismantle the president's signature healthcare program. >> the shame is it took 62 times for the will of the people to make it to the president's desk. >> president obama won't sign
it. the bill would strip millions from planned parenthood. >> where exactly are the women in these areas supposed to go to get a pap smear or to get a mammogram? >> at odds with his budget request just weeks away. and the white house says some of that will i include money for mental health. >> political cease fire may soon be over. donald trump did something we haven't really seen yet. he went after ted cruz and. >> let's assume he got a anonymous and the democrats bring suit. the suit takes two to three years to solve.
so how do you run it is certainly a concern i guess for the party but i hope that is not the case. i'm not involved in that but a lot of people are bringing it up absolutely. >> cruz tweeted a link to fonzsy jumps the shark clip from happy days in response. and then the more public feud with his counterpart but clinton still didn't take the bait. >> why does he do whatever he does? i can only tell you what i hear from people and what i hear from people is really about their lives and their future. a lot of this back and forth that goes on in the political. >> but he's winning -- >> well we'll see. we haven't -- >> that's not all. nbc's christen welker has us covered. >> hillary clinton digging in. again refusing to engage with donald trump over his personal jabs during her first television interview of 2016, clinton told

hit back. so. >> reporter: meanwhile trump was also on defense over his new campaign ad. in reality it is the moroccan border. >> it was really just footage and frankly all it shows is people running across a border. and as far as i'm concerned when you look at it, the united states is becoming a dumping ground. and it was just a couple of seconds. >> now to the extreme weather slamming into the west. a soaker fuelled in part by is el nino. >> reporter: the western wash out is here. so is the taste of the el nino effect. relentless rain pouring in. a scramble for some to escape the fast-rising water. cars and roads submerged near the bay area. rock slides and flooding near los angeles. >> be prepared. this storm is real and it is coming.
