7:00 am
and sachs in one year. >> while republicans donald trump and ted cruz face new insults of their own we have the campaigns covered. breaking overnight, the three americans released in the prisoner swap in iran arrive in germany in a reunion with their family. the secret and controversial conversations to end their freedom. the east coast waking up to bitter cold temperatures this morning as much of the northeast is hit with the bitter snow of the season, we're tracking it all. and not sticking the landing. an unmanned rocket touches down and suddenly topples over exploding into pieces. what the team behind that mission is saying about it. today, monday, january 18th, 2016.
7:01 am
guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> good morning everyone. welcome to today on a monday morning. martin luther king day. we go back to that video of the rocket. you know, the space folks saying we got it, we got it, we don't got it. do you get half credit for something like that? >> an a for effort. let us start this morning with the top debate of the presidential campaign so far. hillary clinton clashing with bernie sanders on big issues in this race. starting with nbcs andrea mitchell. dpoorm to you. >> good morning, matt. it was a democratic contest a lot closer than anyone
7:02 am
the candidates have been getting combative and that produced a fiery debate just two weeks the fireworks exploded from the start first over guns. >> i have made it clear based on senator sander's own record that he has voted with the nra, with the gun lobby numerous times. >> secretary clinton knows what she said is very disingenious. i have a very d minus voting record from the nra. >> clinton accusing sanders trying to kill obama care by trying to propose new medicare for all things. >> there are things we can do to improve it. to tear it up and start over again pushing our country back into that kind of con ten, debate is the wrong direction. >> that is nonsense. what a medicare for all program does is finally provide in this country health care for every man, woman and child as a right.
7:03 am
clinton's ties to wall street. >> i don't think money from the banks, i don't get personal speaking fees. >> i can take that. he's criticized president obama for taking donations from wall street and president obama has led our country out of the great recession. >> you received over $600,000 in speaking fees in one year. >> you're the only one on this stage that voted to deregulate the financial market in 2000. >> as to what roll her husband would play if she won the white house. >> it will start at the kitchen table. we'll see how it goes from there. i'm going to ask for his ideas, his advice and use them as good will emissary to go around the
7:04 am
we've got. >> as whether he regrets having called bill clinton's past aggressions, he calls it old news. >> we've been through this. have i ever once said a word about that issue? no, i have not. >> sanders showed no reluctance to his own serge in iowa and new hampshire polls. >> when this campaign began she was 50 points ahead of me. we were all of 3%. guess what. in iowa, new hampshire, the race is very, very close. >> and in fact, after the debate, south carolina's leading democratic congressman told us that if bernie sanders wins big in iowa, it will redefine the race. he says he's got a much better organization here in south carolina than he realized and it could mean a replay of 2008 when hillary clinton lost to barack obama here. back to you, matt. >> andrea mitchell, thanks.
7:05 am
so, will what we heard from the candidates change the dynamic of the democratic race. chuck todd is nbcs political director and moderator of meet the press, good morning to you. did you see a winner last night? a clear winner? >> i don't know if it was a clear winner but this was the bernie sanders debate. if you were an alien and plopped down on the earth and didn't see anything and followed the race, you would assumed bernie sanders was the front runner because he was the focal point of most of the debate. not until you got to foreign policy was it clear that it was hillary clinton that had a lot more command and control in the issue set than bernie sanders. i think in many ways, this was bernie sanders big moment. whether he was able to earn new supporters, i think that's what we're going to find out in the next week. i think he did nothing last night to lose anybody. >> how do you like his tactic of tying secretary clinton to the big banks in wall street?
7:06 am
>> i think in democratic primary, it's very effective. in this political environment, i mean, matt, you have donald trump and bernie sanders both trashing wall street because what wall street also does when you say it, is it tells the voter, hey, they're part of the insider gang. wall street, washington, they've been con flated as far as the political environment is concerned and what the voter hears is insider rig game which doesn't benefit me. >> quickly, before i ask you to take a break and come back and talk about the republicans, if you're running the clinton campaign right now, are you beginning to figure out your talking points to the public on why your candidate might have lost iowa and new hampshire? >> well, i don't think they're there yet. it is to tell democrats hey, did you like president obama? did you love him?
7:07 am
takes to carry his legacy. bernie sanders wants a big revolution. he doesn't think barack obama was good enough. >> all right. chuck, as i mentioned, stick around. we'll talk about the republicans in just a moment. with front runners donald trump and ted cruz talking about their attacks on each other. peter alexander keeping an eye on that, good morning. >> matt, good morning. those warm and fuzzy feelings didn't last. donald trump and ted cruz neck and neck. they're unleashing a series of a attacks with trump's latest cruz missles not over policy. so much for playing nice. >> he's a nasty guy. nobody likes him. nobody in congress likes him. nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him. >> cruz is fighting back against trump and the new york tabloids. >> our friends in the media seems like they lit their hair on fire.
7:08 am
of which you speak? i would say in the rest of america, people know exactly what that means. >> cruz's strategy turning trump's words against him tweeting the billionaire's comments in 1999. pro-choice and open to gay marriage. >> i lived in new york city and manhattan all my life. my views are a little bit different than if i lived in iowa, perhaps. >> trump's arguments, cruz is a hypocrite. >> he wants to look like robin hood like he's the one protecting people from the banks and he's borrowing money and personally guaranteeing and not disclosing it which is illegal. >> a tax that may not sit well with a party's right wing. one influential commentator warning trump cut the crap or you'll lose lots and lots of conservatives like these tea party supporters voicing their disapproval in south carolina saturday. >> say whatever you want. he didn't report bank loans. that's okay.
7:09 am
not missing a chance to get back to his chief critic after getting stuck at an elevator. >> all right. who put donald trump in charge of the elevator? >> the friendship now goes to snl. >> i'm glad everybody is talking about my good friend cruz. >> with trump and cruz grabbing the headlines, the rivals are fighting to get in the fray as well. marco rubio bashing cruz for his campaign donationsations. jeb bush bashing trump for being too liberal. matt. >> peter, thank you very much. let's bring chuck back in. chuck, if you go on the campaign trail and you go to a donald trump event, the people in that room love to hear him secure others, other politicians, especially democrats. it seems there is a line when it comes to ted cruz. explain the line. >> well, look. ted cruz and donald trump share
7:10 am
establishment outside supporters. you saw what peter was talking about. it's the warning shot to trump. a radio talk show host. donald trump in his war against political correctness is really been very popular with the talk radio crowd. ted cruz, sort of more striden conservative in washington is popular with the talk radio crowd and they're more principaled conservative. if they had a choice they would probably vote cruz over trump. that's why this is a very prokars strategy for him. he could hurt himself as much as he helps himself going after cruz. >> chuck todd with us this morning. thank you very much. appreciate it. >> another major story. a prisoner swap with iran to secure the freedom of four americans. three of them arriving in germany overnight as they make their way home. we have two reports beginning
7:11 am
he's in germany. keir, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. three of the freed americans spent the night here. one of them a washington post reporter is in good spirits this morning we're told after a nail biting 48 hours, the climax of months of negotiations. released prisoner matt, the first to arrive home. met by his mom at logan airport and this was washington post reporters first taste of freedom met by u.s. officials. he's now one of the three at the u.s. medical facility in germany. >> it's spectacular news. can't wait to see him. >> in a flurry of activity, his editors arrived to meet him. >> what did he say? >> i feel a whole lot better than i did 48 hours ago. >> he seems in high spirits and indicated he wants human contact
7:12 am
>> former marine, his sister, was flying in for a reunion. >> we're looking forward to meeting him soon. >> while the pastor from boise, idaho has spent three years locked up. >> it's surreal. unbelievable. he's out of iranian soil and he's in germany and after some medical attention, i'm waiting to hear from him. >> an emotional 48 hours, the men emerging from an aircraft. >> they were united in welcoming home sons and husbands and brothers who in lonely prison cells have endured an absolute nightmare. >> a nuclear deal, sanctions lifted and events fuelled with suspicion by republicans and one american didn't come home. the iranians saved former fbi agent bob levinson is missing. the statement from his family
7:13 am
>> a mystery surrounds a fifth american who despite being freed not to leave iran. we don't know why he didn't want the attention. the three here could be here for days while they undergo a psychological evaluation. >> thank you so much. let's get more from richard angle, nbc's chief correspondent. richard, what is the move there today? >> well, this is an extraordinary time to be here. the mood is one of expectations and optimism. people are encouraged by the deal. they think they got the better half of the deal and they are looking forward to a better economy. the sanctions have been put in place now lifted and devastated the iranian economy and put a strangle hold on the economy. it was illegal for iranian people and businesses to move money in and out of the country. now banks can do that. iran couldn't legally trade its oil.
7:14 am
worth what it use to be and tens of billions of dollars have been unfrozen. the money hasn't hit the economy yet. it could soon. we were just in the bizarre area, right in the heart of iran, the commercial center of the city and people were already talking about stocking up their inventory and they're expecting more tourist to come. i was the only american i saw in the bizarre area and people came up to me and said we hope more americans come. we want to do business. >> you pointed out logical reasons why the people would be encouraged. what is the government telling its own people? >> well, the president gave a national address and he said that this was a victory for iran iran, a victory for the principals of iran canadian revolution. he said it was a win, win and all the countries around the
7:15 am
the exception of what he said was warmongers in the region, israel and what he called extremist in washington which many here interpreted as a reference to donald trump and some of the other republican candidates. >> richard, thank you some. >> and let us now move to iran's neighbor, iraq. iraqi forces are scrambling to find a group of americans who disappeared over the weekend in baghdad. iraqi o iraqi iraqi officials say the u.s. officials were kidnapped from their home. the americans were taken to sauter city where all communications and contact stopped stopped. the u.s. embassy has confirmed several americans gone missing in iraq and they're working to locate them. >> here at home, brutal call blanketing a large section of the east with more than 52 million americans under warnings and advisories. dylan is here with the details. we have a big crowd because it's a holiday but they're all bundled up.
7:16 am

7:18 am
some how, look closely, their shark remains unskaiffed. >> let's talk about a college basketball player in trouble for what he did during a game on sunday. beaver's forward strips the ball away from the utah player and falls to the ground. watch what happens next. he sticks out his foot and trips the referee running up the court. reid was mad there was no call made on the play. he was rejected from the game and they're reviewing the incident. utah went on to win 59-53. you don't do that with a referee referee. >> you don't do that to anyone, yet alone the person who can control your destiny on the court. >> that's right. you don't stay on the court long when you do that. dylan back with a check on the local weather. >> we have a bit of snow falling through eastern massachusetts. making it a little bit slippery

7:22 am
no one speed... no one way of driving on each and every road. but there is one car that can conquer them all. the mercedes-benz c-class. five driving modes let you customize the steering, shift points, and suspension to fit the mood you're in... and the road you're on. the 2016 c-class. lease the c300 for $399 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking.
7:23 am
eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. are you powered by protein? we are. milk has 8 grams to help give you energy to unleash your potential. start every day with

7:26 am
the biggest duals coming between hillary clinton and bernie sanders over the nation's health care system. >> there are things we can do to improve it. to tear it up and start over again pushing our country back into that kind of debate, i think is the wrong direction. >> we're not going to tear up the affordable care act. i helped write it. we are going to move atype of that to a dedicated. >> in the new nbc news wall street journal poll clinton holds a 25 point lead over sanders nationally but they are neck and neck in iowa and new hampshire. >> three americans released as part of a prisoner swap in iran are in germany resting and receiving medical evaluations. one of them reported for the washington post had been detained in iran for 18 months. another, a pastor in idaho had been jailed for three years.

7:29 am
that was had, he in several ways wanted to be on the record. >> penn also changed the suggestion that his secret interview led mexican authorities to el chapo. >> nobody found him before they did. we're not smarter than the dea or mexican intelligence. >> meanwhile, this picture was posted on social media this weekend with the caption do you really think i'm stressed? it was later deleted. many wonder if he could escape the prison for the third time. the mexican prison system told me they've learned from their mistakes. today we have four times more cameras and 24-hour guards and
7:30 am
cells repeatedly. americans are hostile to mexicans. their evidence. >> they're not sending their best. >> republican presidential candidate donald trump. >> el chapo has four attorneys registered with the prison behind me and they continue to meet with their client. this is as we now know president obama and mexican president spoke on the phone congratulating each other over the el chapo recapture and the possibility he may finally face justice. matt. >> thank you very much. interesting this new policy in the prison where they keep moving these prisoners to different cells. if you want to try and tunnel in, you risk the possibility and come up in somebody else's cell. >> absolutely. it's beyond embarrassment if this happens again and it's likely not going to happen. now to the investigation being launched into an investigation into the stands between tony stewart and a spectator. confrontation all caught on

8:24 am
when you prepare them at home my version, i'm calling this the joy version, is only 416 calories for a hearty portion and here's how you make them. you start with lean pork tenderlines and slice it is into thin strips and skewer it, these are our bones, right and you'll marinade it in your favorite barbecue sauce just five to six minutes on the grill, that's it. so huge savings. if you were to do this once a week, at the end of the year you would save yourself more than 40,000 categories which is the equivalent of 82 pounds of pork tenderloin which we're going to be donating throughout new york city to soup banks and to -- soup kitchens and food banks. >> and if we make this swap how does it help sally, what's the imsnakt. >> she's going to drop 12 pound. more energy to play with her kids, feeling real inspired and motivated. >> now toburgers. >> again, most people love burgers.
8:25 am
burger, what are you consuming? >> about 600 calories because the majority of time you're making it with fatty ground chuck. instead, you're going to elevate your burger by using a combination of lean ground poultry, either chicken or turkey combined with black beans. this is one of the coolest strategies. you increase your plant-based protein and lower the call gris from 600 to 275, and can you follow any recipe. >> do you this all year, maybe once a week. what do you save? >> more than 50,000 calories which is the equivalent of 120 cans of beans. pretty cool, and, again, being donated right after that. i love this. >> let's go back to sally. >> she's doing two tips now. now loses another 15 pounds so she is down a total of 27 pounds from two simple tips. you like fried chicken? >> these are two of my favorite things, ribs and fried chicken. all right. what do we do -- first of all, how much is that costing me in
8:26 am
>> 680 calories from a piece of fried breast and a fried thigh, . here's how you make unfried chicken in a snap. you take skin less thighs or breasts and you dunk them in some egg, coat them with whole grain bread crumbs seasoned up. and you put them in a very hot oerch oven, 450 for about 15 minutes and you have crispy unfried chicken. this works for fish as well. you save 54,000 calories. the equivalent of 100 pounds soft chicken. of chicken. are you ready for sally? a total of 43 pounds lost. let's look at her before and after together. this is pretty amazing.
8:27 am

8:30 am
i've always been a very open book. we try to deal with on the show the same issues that families are dealing with in their work, in their personal lives. it's funny, it's heart felt. hopefully you will be entertained. >> it is entertaining. you talk about the juggle of home and business, which is a big part of who you are. >> i think we all deal with that, though. you deal with that and every other person i talk to tried to find that perfect balance. i don't think we ever quite find it. it's all about the comedy of errors that occur as we struggle to do that. >> how many years were you on biggest loser? >> ten maybe. >> did people walk up to you on the street and add for advice about losing weight? >> they absolutely do. you see a little bit of that on the show. i love that. that's a real honor to feel like you were a part of someone's
8:31 am
i wouldn't change that for the world. >> you're still willing to give great advice on how to conquer lose weight and getting healthy. >> i try. should i give a tip? listen to joy. that was a good tip. don't eat that stuff. >> one of the things i think is nice about this new show is i think people are used to seeing the hard driving, tougher side of you and i think on the show you're going to see the softer side of you. >> you see all sides. we all love a box and a lane and putting someone in a category. the reality is as human beings we're multifaceted. we make mistakes. we grow, we evolve. we can be soft, we can be hard. there's definitely some intense moments when it comes to my work that you see my business partner come in as the cleaning crew.

8:34 am
>> i told you i just did my closet. how is your closet at home? >> my closet is organized. but it does take upkeep. every few months i go through and get rid of the things i'm not wearing. first, you've got to get rid of the wire hangers. they don't keep the shape of your clothes that well. and the plastic keeps in all of the chemicals they use at the dry cleaners. get rid of those and invest in good hangers. go to a place like the container store. i do love the huggable hanger. it's very thin. it's amazing how you will maximize your storage space. plus the velvet grips the clothes. you want to put clothes like jackets and blazers on a nice wooden hanger. and if you have a long storage space, the best way to store pants is from the cuff. it keeps the crease.
