tv   Today  NBC  January 6, 2016 7:00am-10:01am PST

7:00 am
we're watching for more reports like this all around the bay. >> a busy one. that's what's happening "today in the bay." we're back at 7:25 with an update. breaking news. north korea claiming it successfully tested its first hydrogen bomb overnight. the tremor the size of a moderate earthquake. the reaction in countries around the world swift and intense. but was it really an h-bomb? if so, why didn't u.s. intelligence know it was coming? cruz in the cross-hairs. donald trump questions ted cruz's eligibility much like he did president obama's. feeling the heat as his republican rival surges in iowa. other republicans question the sincerity of the president's emotional news conference on guns. >> every time i think about those kids, it gets me mad. >> too much?
7:01 am
a father outraged over this nearly two-minute pat-down of his 10-year-old daughter by a tsa agent. did it go on too long? did it get too personal? gigantic jackpot. tonight's powerball now up to $450 million, one of the largest ever. the frenzy to buy more tickets could make it even bigger when those six numbers are drawn today, wednesday, january 6th, 2016. and we've got some breaking news out in california. an earthquake, it happened east of los angeles. >> happened about 20 minutes ago. centered north of banning, that's about 85 miles outside of
7:02 am
los angeles. it's estimated that the mag magnitude 4.5. no immediate calls or reports of significant damage or injury. we'll keep an eye on this. have a lot more as the developments warrant throughout the morning. >> you can see the map if you're not all that familiar with california. it's east of the san bernardino area. again, 4.5 magnitude and luckily at the moment as you mentioned no major injuries reported. >> breaking news out of north korea this morning. its government claiming a tremor detected there overnight was the result of hydrogen bomb test. if true, it would mark a significant and dangerous advance in north korea's military and a disturbing threat to the region. let's get to nbc's chief global correspondent, bill neely. >> this was a surprise. the world's most closed country announcing a dramatic escalation in his nuclear capability.
7:03 am
clearly there was a test. was it really a hydrogen bomb. a north korean tv announcer claims the country's first hydrogen bomb test and calls it a success. we won't stop our nuclear program, she says, because of what she calls american aggression. they cheered in north korea's capital. they've seen three previous tests announced but never of an h-bomb, a far more powerful weapon. the u.s. is waiting to invade our country, this man says. so it's the right thing to do. the hydrogen bomb, he says, is a reliable way of defending ourselves. tremors from the underground explosion were felt in china and in south korea where officials say it's a provocation. north korea's leader kim jong-un, knows that but signed the test order anyway. japan too is alarmed. military planes taking off toe test air samples. the u.s. ambassador meeting to
7:04 am
reassure the government that says the test is a serious threat. >> we stand with japan and our partners and allies in solidarity against this north korean provocation. >> north korea has an aggressive nuclear and weapons program, showing us hardware three months ago. what's dangerous about this latest test is that a hydrogen bomb can be smaller, lighter and easier to deliver, on a missile warhead. north korea's leader kim jong-un is still consolidating his power and now flexing his muscle at a world that's looking at north korea with real anxiety. >> it will take weeks to check this out, but there will be consequences for north korea. the u.n. meets later today. it may move toward tighter sanctions. kim jong-un, though, unlikely to be deterred by that. >> thank you. let us bring in nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. if the north koreans have now successfully tested their first hydrogen bomb, that is a very dangerous step forward. but if u.s. intelligence was
7:05 am
caught off-guard that's also dangerous, isn't it? >> absolutely. this was as bill was just saying a complete surprise. they knew something was up. they had seen tunnels, but no idea if this is -- this is a big if. we haven't confirmed it. it will be days or weeks before they absolutely confirm it. if it is true it's a major escalation. this is a much more powerful weapon. they've done three previous tests but they were lower yield plutonium devices. they have a uranium program. but no idea if this is indeed a hydrogen blast. >> andrea mitchell. stick around. we'll talk politics in a moment. turning to the presidential race. new attacks from republican frontrunner donald trump against his republican and democratic rivals. in a moment how hillary clinton is responding to trump. first to nbc national correspondent peter alexander in washington. hi, good morning, peter. >> good morning. those republicans, once curious about trump, are now increasingly committed.
7:06 am
a new reuters online poll today showing trump way out in front at 42% nationally. three times ted cruz's support. cruz polls best in iowa, the first caucus state. in the clearest sign yet that trump sees him as a real threat, he is talking up questions about cruz's eligibility to be president. >> the nation's best-known birther, donald trump, famously demanded to see president obama's birth certificate. now taking issue with texas senator ted cruz's birth place, canada. raising the topic on msnbc's "morning joe." >> it's a problem for him. let's assume he got a nomination and the democrats bring suit. the suit takes two to three years so how do you run. >> trump later puto the "washington post." some states are looking at it strongly, the fact that he was born in canada and has a double passport. ted cruz's response, the scene
7:07 am
from "happy days," the fonz jumping the shark, suggesting trump is getting desperate. most americans agree cruz qualifies as a natural-born citizen. >> do you think tred cruz is a natural born citizen eligible for presidency. >> yes. >> trump is not backing down from his confrontation with the clintons. >> it's fair game. >> the billionaire insisting he only brought up bill clinton's ex tra marital affairs after hillary clinton accused him of sexism first. >> when she said that, i said, well, your husband is campaigning. it's open season. if he wasn't campaigning it would be different. >> hours after president obama's emotional appeal for an end to gun violence the republicans remained unimpressed. trump, teeing off in new hampshire. >> they're not going to take your guns away, folks. >> ted cruz mocking the
7:08 am
president as a tyrant, tweeting, gun control is government control. >> new this morning, trump's wife is speaking out candidly. the supermodel telling harper's bizarre magazine that she has chosen to stay quiet but is, quote, very political in private life. she says she hasn't thought much about life in the white house but has been working with the couple's 9-year-old son baron to keep his life, in her words as normal as possible. >> thank you. on the democratic side, hillary clinton is responding to some of trump's rhetoric as she takes her campaign west. kristen welker has more than that. good morning. >> good morning to you, matt. secretary clinton will be campaigning in las vegas later today, a key western state. and it comes as the verbal attacks between clinton and trump are escalating. facing an increasingly competitive race in must-win iowa hillary clinton ignored trump's attacks late tuesday,
7:09 am
focusing instead on rallying her supporters here. >> i am excited about the organization we've been building here in the state. >> earlier in the day fireworks for trump. clinton saying his heated rhetoric makes him unfit to lead. >> we should not reward people who use inflammatory rhetoric, who use the kind of derogatory comments, whether it's about muslims or mexicans or women or people with disabilities. whoever it might be. >> in an exclusive interview with msnbc chris matthews, clinton warned -- >> that's a sign of showmanship, of desperation that should be rejected roundly by the american people. >> strong words. but clinton stopped there, refusing to engage trump on his personal attacks of her and her husband, who is back on the trail this week. for days trump has excoriated puerto ri bill clinton for the transgressions that nearly brought down his presidency. >> i will not respond --
7:10 am
>> what's it say about the republican -- >> let me try to phrase it. i feel like a lawyer now. >> he can say whatever he wants to say. i'll talk about what people talk to me about. >> clinton also had her eye a thousand miles away on the white house where an emotional president obama announced new actions on gun laws. >> every time i think about those kids it gets me mad. >> clinton making no mention of the president getting emotional, praised obama, while also taking a little credit. >> i was very proud that he made these recommendations, some of which i have been advocating in this campaign. >> secretary clinton has made gun control a key pillar of her campaign. it resonates with democratic primary voters. it's also one of the rare issues where she seems further to the left of vermont senator bernie sanders. sanders also praised the president's action yesterday. the two candidates will face off at a party dinner in las vegas tonight.
7:11 am
matt and savannah. let's focus in on the state of the race. less than four weeks to go to the iowa caucuses. chuck todd and andrea mitchell and here in the studio. mark halperin. political correspondent steve kornacki. good morning to all of you. >> full house. [ laughter ] >> chuck, starting with you. ted cruz has now launched this missive -- excuse me. trump has launched a missive against ted cruz on this issue of eligibility to run for president. do you think this is something that will have appeal with conservative voters or is it kind of throwing everything at the wall? >> it's a distraction. i think you'll watch today when the talk radio circuit, who has been very supportive of ted cruz and anytime there has been a split between cr and trump they side with cruz. i suspect, unless they somehow turn on cruz on this issue, i don't think it will be an issue at all with conservative voters. >> where is mitt romney?
7:12 am
when is he going to endorse a candidate in this race, and how important would that endorsement be? >> i actually think he is wise to stay quiet. because the age of the arbiter or referee in republican politics is long gone. john mccain is another figure in the republican party who used to throw a flag. the republican base is so disdainful of the whole notion of any sort of establishment figure coming in and giving them any sort of guidance. >> if he were to jump behind chris christie or marco rubio you don't think it would make' difference? >> i also think there is the possibility it could hurt them. >> that leads me to the question for steve kornacki. where is the vaunted republican establishment that used to be the heavyweight and could call balls and strikes? [ laughter ] >> if it reared its head, i think it will be in new hampshire. it won't be in iowa. the biggest problem the establishment has in new
7:13 am
hampshire right now is that you have four candidates, christie, rubio, kasich and bush. all eating up the so-called establishment vote and letting donald trump run away with it. if one to consolidate it they could give trump a run for his money. >> on the occasions when the discussions include anyone other than donald trump and hillary clinton you hear more people saying chris christie is heating up. he is on the move. he may be peaking at the right time. yet, if you look at his national polling numbers, you don't see that. why are people suddenly going behind chris christie? >> because to win you have to win a state or do really well in a state. chris christie in new hampshire has -- to take the old line -- perfect together. it's a good state for him. donald trump, based on resources, message, poll standings, will be a finalist. ted cruz, resources, poll standing, message, finalist. mitt romney and paul ryan won't create another finalist. you have to create it yourself if you're jeb bush or chris christie or marco rubio.
7:14 am
christie looks like a guy who can create it for himself right now. he has a message and he has swagger. >> you agree. >> new hampshire. >> i think he's making more moves outside of new hampshire than have been detected on a wide scale. good moves in iowa. he drove over the holidays. there are national security voters in iowa who care a lot about toughness. >> he could finish third in iowa. then you could see people like mitt romney and others saying this is our one guy from our establishment lane. we're getting behind him. i agree with nicolle. it may not help him. >> andrea, let's talk about the bill clinton factor. popular with democratic voters yet we've seen the wound open up that donald trump drove through in terms of the negatives of bill clinton. is he a net positive or net negative when you factor it all in? >> i think given his
7:15 am
overwhelming popularity it's a net positive. he is obviously a lightning rod in republican primaries. that's why you are hearing donald trump and the others going after him. so it's a great issue in republican primaries. in the general election i think he is a net positive as long as he goes along with the guidance. when we were with him the other day in new hampshire, he really, really wanted to respond to trump but bit his tongue and pulled back. there is going to be a moment when he might go off the program. >> mark, that was one of your questions. will he take the bait at some point from trump. >> the clintons have a choice to make. do they want to spend january fighting with trump or not. they say, if he goes after other americans that they will engage him. they'll hold him accountable. they don't want to engage on the personal stuff. let's see if they can stay disciplined. fighting with trump is hard, as we've learned. >> chuck and andrea and everyone. thank you so much. new developments in another
7:16 am
story this morning. the investigation in the san bernardino attack. authorities looking for the public's help in accounting for every moment of the killers' whereabouts on that day. there is an 18-minute gap in the time line between the massacre that left 14 dead and the shootout where both gunmen were killed. the fbi says they want to know if syed farook and tashfeen malik stopped at any residence or business that they don't already know about. now to the situation still unfolding in oregon. armed anti-government protesters have taken over a federal refugee. crew's leader says the group has a plan to help ranchers in the community, quote, defend themselves against the federal government. he provided few details, though. one of the other activists said tuesday that he needs to get back to his nevada ranch saying, quote, i have cows that are scattered and lost. >> perfect segue. mr. roker is here. >> don't even go there.
7:17 am
>> with a check of the weather. >> our friends in california not doing so good. take a look. watch this. there is a lamborghini going to try to get through this in san diego. he actually made it, believe it or not. yes, he did. then he got out and got on the paddleboard. no! this guy had to go get his car. this is rough stuff. and we've got more heavy rain coming again for today. look at what's happening. another storm system pushing in. the first system now moving into arizona. this second one coming into central and northern california, eventually makes its way down into southern california. we have flash flood watches from california and oakland. 19 million people. a winter storm watch as well. four million people in pacific northwest and southwest. more snow in the sierra. the last round of the heavy rain. we'll watch the totals. snow fall amounts, looking at a

good morning to you. it is 7:26. i'm laura garcia-cannon. a live look at downtown san jose. our micro climate weather alert is still in effect this morning. the heaviest part of this latest storm has mostly moved through. it's causing residual problems though. in san francisco, rain and wind brought down a large tree on busy mission and 4th street. just moments ago, muni told us the tree is cleared and the lanes are open. they worked pretty fast on that one. the rain did bring concerns to drivers on highway 17. yesterday storm brought down a tree that created pretty lengthy backups. this morning's drive remained mostly problem free other than ponding making driving conditions treacherous. let's check the forecast with
7:27 am
kari. >> we are still seeing heavy rain moving across san francisco now crossing the bay. that's where we'll have some problems once again as you head up 880. the rain is pouring pretty much all up and down the corridor. as we go into the next few minutes, that will be approaching the tri-valley. rain will still continue with a few more breaks as we go into the afternoon, but look at the timing as we go through the day. we still see a lot of green here and adding more to the water that we already have on the roads. let's see how the roads are looking now with mike. >> very wet, as you said, kari. palo alto getting hit with rain heading toward the south bay. traffic moving relatively well. in the south bay, north 880 still jam friday 17 and campbell up toward bascom. a car has been removed mfrom th side of the road.
7:28 am
we'll look at the san mateo bridge, soupy conditions, tough visibility across the bay. be careful. back to the "today" show.
7:29 am
7:30 am
we're back at 7:30. we promised a big announcement. here it is. you see the white house there. next tuesday in morning show first, we are going to broadcast our entire show there. this is unprecedented. this is the day of president obama's very last state of the union address. we will have unique access inside the white house for the entirety of our show. we're going to have some rooms that are rarely seen by the public walking through them. of course, we'll sit down with the president as well, talk about some of the issues facing his presidency in its final year. >> that is "today at the white house." we're going to call it "today takes over the white house," because the secret service had a problem with that. >> that's not going to work. >> next tuesday morning right here on "today." as savannah mentioned, we're all going. >> pending background checks,
7:31 am
carson daly. >> why you looking at me? i'm good. >> we are looking forward to that. now it's time to take a look at the stories making news this morning. >> breaking news out of north korea, claims of a successful hydrogen bomb test resulting in an earthquake and an emergency meeting of the united nations security council. >> the north korean regime is essentially a rogue state. we have no reason to think they will behave responsibly. president obama outlined his new gun-control executive order. >> unable to hold back tears. as he remembered 20 children murdered at sandy hook elementary. >> every time i think about those kids, it gets me mad. >> conservatives are hitting back. >> they're not going to take your guns away, folks. donald trump taking issue with ted cruz's birthplace, canada. >> it's a problem for him, and it's a problem obviously for the republicans. >> trump isn't backing down from his confrontation with the clintons either. >> it's fair game when they
7:32 am
attack me. >> that's a sign of showmanship, of desperation. extreme weather slamming into the west. >> none of us are going to escape the wrath of el nino. >> relentless rain, cars and roads submerged, rock slides and flooding. >> this storm is real and it's coming. a quick look at the headlines. and here's another big headline of the morning. powerball fever sweeping the nation with tonight's jackpot now at that staggering $450 million. that makes it one of the largest ever. nbc's kerry sanders is in miami where people are busy buying tickets. kerry, good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning, sa va that. there's a little bit of a lull. there's been a line on and off this morning as people are lining up in 44 states, in puerto rico and virgin islands all hoping to get what will be the fourth largest jackpot in u.s. history. now, the chances of winning this are 1 in 292,201,338.
7:33 am
basically you're more likely to be struck by lightning, become president of the united states, get bitten by a shark or die from an asteroid. hitting you in the head. now, if you are going to play this game, just remember, it's a $2 bet. it's not like you increase your odds by buying more tickets. so don't go play the whole paycheck here while you're trying to win. if you buy a $2 ticket or buy five tickets, your odds are about the same. that's the way statistics work according to the statisticians. now, if you are lucky enough to walk away with this jackpot alone, you will still have to pay some taxes. so your winnings will be $275.4 million, which you can take as a lump sum, or you can take it out over 30 years. and those federal taxes, they'll take about 25%, and then, of course, you have state taxes unless you happen to be in one
7:34 am
of those states like florida where you don't have to pay income taxes because there aren't any. we found this lucky dollar on the sidewalk today. so we're going to take these two. we're going to play those. and we're going to do a quick pick here and hopefully, among the many people playing, there will be a winner because if there is not a winner, this will roll over, and they haven't quite calculated how big it will be, but it will be likely the largest jackpot ever. so guys, there's my numbers. what do you think? >> hey, kerry, if it rolls over, there's a 100% chance you'll be doing that live shot again next week. >> that's right. >> meanwhile, kerry, powerball fever -- >> reporter: and if you don't see me here tomorrow, you'll know why. >> yes. >> powerball fever at that store is about 98.6. it's not exactly trending up there, kerry. thank you very much. by the way, guys -- >> oh, come on. >> you get a ticket. you get a ticket. and you get a ticket. >> what if i win? >> i get 75% of it.
7:35 am
>> i'll take that deal. >> the odds are the same if you bought 1 or 500 tickets? >> yes. >> according to kerry. that didn't make any sense to me. >> what a guy. >> okay. >> all right. we're going to change gears and talk about one father's outrage over what he sees as an overaggressive tsa pat-down of his 10-year-old daughter. it dragged on nearly two minutes. natalie you have more. >> kevin payne said he's normally a big advocate of security, but he said that pat-down at the airport in raleigh, north carolina, made his 10-year-old daughter feel very uncomfortable, and he says it crossed the line. >> reporter: using his cell phone camera, an upset father recorded his daughter receiving what he believed to be an unnecessary and invasive tsa pat-down. >> she just had a completely blank stare on her face. i could tell it was very uncomfortable for her. >> reporter: the video shows the agent slowly and meticulously frisking the 10-year-old for nearly two minutes. >> what was going through my mind is this is annoying.
7:36 am
i don't like this. i want to run out the door. >> reporter: payne was screened after a capri sun juice packet was found in her carry-on. according to her father, a swab from her bag came back with a false positive reading. >> it seemed to be the go-to option for them, and i think they could have done a better scrutiny of what they were looking for prior to putting their hands all over my 10-year-old daughter. >> reporter: the issue over whether children should receive pat-downs is controversial. according to tsa protocols, officers will work with parents to resolve any aclarm aclarms a checkpoint and has modified screening procedures for children 12 and under. in a statement to nbc news, the tsa says tsa screening procedures allow for the pat-down of a child under certain circumstances. the process by which the child was patted down followed approved procedures. the tsa also points out that the
7:37 am
process was observed by the child's parent, and there was a cell phone with an alarm going off in the child's bag. requiring additional resolution procedures. as for the paynes, they understand the importance of airline security but feel when it comes to kids, there has to be a better way. >> maybe they need retraining. maybe they did everything by the book. i don't really know. but it was, you know, an uncomfortable situation. >> and payne says he contacted his u.s. congressman about the incident, and they will be filing a formal complaint. obviously tsa doing their jobs but i think we all have to question on a 10-year-old, is it excessive? with children, it's always a difficult barometer. >> you can understand how a father would feel. >> absolutely. >> mr. roker. let's show you what we've got going on right now. another area of moisture affecting the folks who got flooded out last weekend. we've got gulf moisture coming up out of the south. and it will be combining with that storm system that brought all the heavy rain to
7:38 am
california. so rain's going to be already going over saturated ground. rivers are still rising from earlier rain to the north we've got a wintry mix, going to make travel trouble with lice and low visibility. so right now as far as flooding, 181 river gauges nationwide above flood stage. 21 locations at major flood stage. the good news is the lighter rain will fall right over the mississippi. so that's good news. we're looking snowfallwise out of this between today and tomorrow about two to four inches as you get into the upper we are under a micro climate weather alert because of some heavy rain and rounds of it have been moving through this morning. the third of the storm systems we've had this week, and this one has been the strongest with heavier downpours. as we take a closer look at the heavy rain moving through parts of the east bay, affecting the commute as you go up toward 880 between san leandro and fremont,
7:39 am
that's where we do have some downpours and also in san jose changer that could be coming to the tter ed. >> but first the president moved to tears and what happens when politicians show their emotions right after this. weight watchers has changed. our all-new beyond the scale program puts the focus on you and not just the number on the scale. lose weight while eating healthier, with all new smartpoints. and move more by including fitness in ways that work for you. see how good you'll feel with the new weight watchers beyond the scale program! join for free now and lose 10 pounds on us. the citi double cash® card comes in very handy with cash back twice on purchases. earn once when you buy, and again as you pay. that's cash back now, and cash back again later.

7:43 am
