>> reporter: savannah, good morning. immediately after the debate donald trump himself may have put it best saying the bromance is over. with the days ticking down to ioio, no more mr. nice between between trump and cruz, the two guys engaging in a fierce back and forth. the clash in carolina. >> so you should go out, get a declaratory judgment, let the courts decide. now? why now, why are you raising this issue now? >> because now he's doing a little bit better. no, i didn't care before. it's true. >> reporter: dominated by a pair of bitter exchanges between donald trump and ted cruz, one over canada, the other about new york.. first on cruz's eligibility to be president. >> my friend donald said that he had his lawyers look at this from every which way, and there
there was nothing to do this birther issue. now w [ laughter ] since september, the constitution hasn't changed. [ laughter ] but the poll numbers have. >> and trump, with a powerful defense of what cruz criticized is his new york values. >> not a lot of conservatives come out of manhattan. i'm just saying. >> when the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than new york, and i have to tell you, that was a very insulting statement that ted made. >> cruz also fended off questions about the "new york times'" reporting that he failed to properly disclose a loan from goldman sachs in 2012. >> if that's the best hit that the "new york times" has got, they better go back to the well. >> reporter: cruz and marco rubio collided over immigration. >> you used to support people here legally and nowowou are saying you're against it. >> i appreciate you dumping your research folder on the debate stage but at least half of the things marco said are flatatut false. >> rubio and chris christie butting heads, both men trying to consolidate establishment
>> you had your chance, marco. you blew it. >> here in south carolina trump p embraced the state's governor nikki haley who days ago urged gop voters not to be tempted by the angriest voices. >> i'm v vy angry because our country is being run horribly, and i will gladly accept the mantle of anger. >> but once again the night's biggest target, barack obama and the democrats trying to succeeee him. >> on tuesday night i watched story time with barack obama, and i've got to tell you, it sounded like everything in the world was going amazing, you know. >> if she gets elected her first 100 days instead of setting an agenda, she might be going back and forth between the white house and the courthouse. >> we're going to win every state if bernie sanders is the nomimie. >> with just two and a half weeks till iowa the trailing candidates desperate to be heard. >> well, i'm very happy to get a question this early on. i was going to auk you to wake me up when the timimcame. >> reporter: main debate stage
candidates, but in that undercard debate carly fiorina camedout swinging. in her opening statetent with a personal swipe at hillary clinton. take a listen. >> the truth is i've had and been blessed with a lot of opportunities to do a lot of things in my life, and unlike another woman in this race, i actually love spending time with my husband. >> reporter: just t e more rereblican debate before the first nominating contest in iowa. savannah and carson. >> all right. peter, thank you so much. chuck todd, nbc's political director and mlderator of "meet the press" is up here, up late and early with us. >> that's what we all do now. >> this seems like more and more a trump and cruz race. >> it is, and i thought last night what was interesting, i'll throw rubio in there. i feel like those three they had the debate, and jeb bush and christie tried to get involved, but you can really feel the top tier there, because if you look at it, the three of them all had -- all had some moments.
in the first part, rubio really well in the last part of the debate but trump, not many people came after him other than cruz and he actual -- this was his best debate performance to date. i don't think you could say he won, but i might argue that because he was touched the least that he's overall going to get the most. >> he did get booed a couple of times. >> he did at f fst, it's interesting. if it wasn't for the crowd, i don't know if ted cruz would be seen to have done as well. >> they were for cruz. >> that was very pro cruz. that helped him early. he sort of fed off of it a little bit. trump i thouout it rattled him early and then he sort of got comfortable, okay, this crowd is not for me. >> cruz brings up the new york issue. pers are all over him today that. must have been a blow to him >> well, it is, i think, you know. look, it may not hurt him in iowa. my late father, he grew up in iowa and he who say oh, those
better than us. that can actually help cruz in a place like iowa, but i think having this intensity, and the way donald trump handled it, i have to say that was one of those, like this is a guy who is growing as a candidate. that answer on 9/11, and he did it without sort of an in your face aspect. >> taking the high road when given the opportunity to counterpunch on nikki haley. what about the eligibility for cruz? did cruz end it? is it still out there or is this going to float out there and be an issue for trump? >> there's reports that somebody actually filed the first lawsuit. it h h unnerved cruz. you saw him. what got him to attack trump, he avoided it for six months. this has now rattled him. we're now on day seven where every day he's had to answer questions about this, so, no, i don't think it's going away. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. all right. now w the frenzy over the three winning tickets sold in wednesday's record-shattering powerball jackpot. as we said, we have in our studio a couple who claims to ld one of those winning tickets from tennessee.
just a few minutes but first nbc's miguel almaguer has more on the search for the other two winners. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. here's what we know is fact. the 7-eleven behind me is three stores that sold perfect lottery tickets, the other one in florida and tennessee and so far this morning there's no official winner. just as vast as the frenzy, there was the farce. as soon as crowds rushed the store that sold the winning ticket, stories surfaced from those who clm they hit it big. >> i'm excited for them, and i don't even know who it is. >> reporter: in florida, reporters chasing rumors. one woman from her home forced to release a statement. i am not the powerball winner. on instagram, this ticket of a man with the winning numbers, dismissed as a phony, all photoshopped. >> reporter: and then overnight just miles from the store where someone's dream did come true. helicopter in the air and news
nursing home headlines claimeded a mothehe of seven in her 60s working the night shift won it all. >> if she did win, hey, that's what we want. >> reporter: the story read like a novel, a son calling his mom who said she had won when like everyone else she had just lost. >> she's like the sweetest person, and i don't know -- that would really be a terrible joke. >> reporter: a joke for some but not all. 73 tickets nearly hit the jackpot, good for $1 million in cash. one shared by a group of kentucky teachers, a lessosoin economics, a dose of good faith. >> this was actually the very first time i've ever bought a ticket. >> reporter: but this morning there is still that million dollar question. who won that billion dollar jackpot? lotto officials say they don't know who hit the jackpot, if they are couples@or if they were part of pools. they say they are checking surveillance tapes at stores
but only way they will have an official answer is when folks walk through their doors with an authorized ticket. savannah and carsoso back to you ys. >> miguel almaguer. >> that brings us to the lucky couple who say they are holding the ticket one held in munford, tennessee. they are here with their daughter tiffany and their attorney and his daughter. good morning, guys. >> can we see that ticket? you keepg it nice and close to your heart. >> it's not going very far. >> sleeping with it under your pillow. >> no, no, no, i didn't go that far. >> from the outset, guys, you haven't gone to the lottery officials yet ininennessee. >> no. >> so there's no way for us to officially verify that you are the winners. we have done a lot of work to verify your employment, where you live. you live right next to the grocery y ore, we've done a lolo and talked to lawyer and that's why we're bringing y y guys are claiming to be the winners.
wanted to get that out. why though did you decide not to go to the lottery officials yet and come to us first? >> well, actually it was his idea. >> your lawyer's idea. >> you didn't -- you were worried about going public right away. >> right, right. >> and what was your thought, joe. >> the american public w wts to hear from them are and even though they want to be private after this is over they want to, you know, let the public know that they are the winners. >> okay. >> a so -- we'll get back to the sty because it's kind of interestininhow you found us. we didn't fifi you. you found us, but, first, let's just talk about wednesday night, powerball fever. >> okay. >> it's almost 7:00. the deadline is in two hours. you decide to go to the grocery store. what happened? >> actually i was on my way home from work. >> okay. >> and she had called me and she said are you going to stop and get a couple lottery tickets? i said -- i really didn't feel like stopping that night. i was s ke, yeah, i'll stop and get them. so when i stopped and i buy my lottery tickets, i always buy four at a time because there's four members of my family and i always do a quick pick single ticket.
>> so i went and got my lottery tickets at the grocery store and came home and i wasn't feeling good and i handed the tickets to her. i said i'm going to go lay down. >> take us from there, lisa. you're watching the powerball and the numbers are coming out, you're holding your ticket and walk us through that. >> i wrote them down because i had other tickets -- his other three to look at, so i was like, i'm going to write them down. i wrote the numbers down and i got to looking and i saw it and i was -- i looked again. there's the same, and the third time i went running down the hallway, john, john, you've go to check these numbers and i startled him because he was asleep on the couch. >> what did you think when you first woke up. >> did you believe it. >> she said check these numbers and i said okay i looked at them and i said, yeah, they look like they are the numbers so i checked them -- actually four times and i said i'll believe it when%the news comes on in the morning and, hey, there's a winnerern mumford.
>> well, we were up all night. we didn't get any sleep. he didn't feel too good anyway. >> that story is verified. sure enough. >> we don't leave our house. >> well, we started seeing the news -- the lolol news networks there hanging out in mumford. they already knew that it was in mumford. >> and the media was at every store but the store. >> where i bought the ticket. >> what have the last 48 hours been like e r you and your famimi? i mean, are you sitting there dreaming about what we're going to do? are you excited? are you scared? are you elated? are you nervous? how do you feel? >> actually a little scared because i didn't know exactly what to dodo i knkn that i wanted to gegean accountant. i knew that i wanted to get a lawyer and -- and try to follow the -- the procedures. you know, that they tell you t t follow. >> my eyes can't go off your right hand, john. you're holding a ticket that

in the caribbeaea central and south america. in adults it's usually nothing more serious than a short lived headache, joint pain and fever, but in unborn children, researchers believe the zika virus can lead to microcephaly which in many children is fatal. among the world experts, dr. peter hotez at baylor college of medicine. >> babies having a very small head and also having lots of neurological complications. this is a very serious birth defect, and what's so impressive is that there's been hundreds, perhaps thousands of these birth defects across latin america but particularly in northeastern brazil where it's been most heavily concentrated. >> reporter: w, oxford university researcrs have mapped out where the virus c cld spread if left unchecked. eventually into southern coastal

nbc news exclusive. amal clooney, the smart, savvy and stylish lawyer and, , s, wife of george clooney is speaking out. >> she sat down with nbc's cynthia mcfadden who joins us now. cynthia, good morning. >> good morning. well, she's been practicing law atathe highest levels for the past 15 years and last year, of course, she married one of the most famous bachelors on the planet, but amal clooney had never sat down for a network interview until now. this week in washington she let us sit down with her and watch her at work as she pushes for action on a case she hopes she n get all of us to care about. when hollywood's favorite bachelor fell in love, the press couldn't get enough. >> amal, whatever alchemy it is that brought us together, i couldn't be more proud to be your husband. >> it clearly wasn't just her looks and style that grabbed george clooney's attention. >> amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the enron case, was an adviser to kofi annan regarding syria and was selected for a three-person u.n. commission investigating rules
strip. so tonight her husband is getting a lifetime achievement award. >> oxford educated, she is a member of an elite group of top flight international human rights lawyers working often for free under some of the most challenging of circumstances. like her trip to the maldives in september to meet with her client, mohammed nashid, the country's former president, now a prisoner, sentenced to 13 ars for a terrorism conviction the u.n. says was bogus. >> so before you went, your co-counsel was stabbed in the head. do you worry about your safety? >> iean, it wasn't the most comfortable position to be in, but, you know, i was determined to go. it meant a lot to me to meet nashid who i had read about and considereded hero, and i was inspired by his leadership on climate justice, his leadership on human rights. >> if we do not act now, my island nation wille submerged by the rising sea.
forced him from office nashid was eventually dragged into court where he wasn't allowed to call even a single witness. >> it's very cleararhat this was just a sham trial designed to get him out of the political scene and in prison. >> and while the list of world leaders now calling for nashid's release is impressive. it is one of his lawyers, a reluctant celebrity, who may be getting the most traction. >> many years ago angelina jolie said to me that she understood that she was going to get attention and if she couldldse all of that light and energy that was coming towards her and turn it around, i mean, is that how you feel about the celebrity? >> i think it's wonderful that celebrities would choose to spend their time or energy or, you know, spotlight that they have to -- to raise awareness about these causes. i don't really see myself in the same way because i'm still doing the same job thahai used to do before. if there's more attention paid for whatever reason to -- to that, then -- >> oh, you know the reason. >> then i think that's good.

you get this all rubbed in there, and then it's all about building flavor in a healthy way and spices is a great way to do it. not a lot of salt on here. really amping up the flavorr with spices. >> all righgh got the team downstairs eating, by
the way. >> hello. >> i know, they are loving it. >> and you were eating, first. >> i like being right here. i want to make this at home. you brown this and you get a nice sear on there, and that's already down there, and basically you brown it. >> you seer it and turn it over and seerr that side, today. >> make sure it's brown on both sides. you want it the to stick to the pan because you're going to use all the flavor in the sauce. >> that's not the total cooking processor the brisket. >> you just seer it. >> that's the start. brisket is like had a long cooking meat. get it brown and cook it for two, three hours which is why it's perfect to make ahead. do this on a sunday and can you freeze it or fridge rate it and then i have more flavor. sauce, mustard, again, thinking
i have ginger, garlic, a little bit of soy sauce, some sesame oil. so this is really a blend of kind of western spices. it's called my east-west brisket, okay. a little oil. so you've got some tomato paste and there's going to be onions in there, too, which is maybe a more european flavor profile, but then i also do -- add thesese wondndful asian flavors. >> you're preparing that sauce while this is searing. >> yes. that gets seared. >> guys, a lot of flavors up here. >> amazing. really unbelievable. >> melts in your mouth. >> once you sear that off. did you do that in a slow cooker? >> you totally can do it in a slow cooker. i'm doing it on the stove. also canan do inn oven and absolutely do it in a slow cooker. i have sesame >> okay. >> vinegar, a little bit of water. >> so it has that kind of east-west flavor profile.
later or is this what you're going to cook it in? >> this is the seared one already. i already have one prepared here. that's also a ton of flavor. i put that in with the sae. if you want to pour that water in with the water. >> all of it? >> yes. now this is how it becomes super tender. this just cooks low and slow. >> let that go. set it and forget it. >> exactly. about two and a half, three hours. you pull it out, you slice it. wow,w, look at that. >> i like to slice it thin. >> it really looked lean. >> it's super lean. when you slice it thin, you can have a reasonable portion of meat. >> right. >> but it's spread out and you feel like you're getting a lot. >> more for sandwiches the next day. what do you serve it with? >> this is a great asian slaw
it's this whole make-ahead thing, even when life is crazy busy. >> this is that healthy portion we were talking about? >> no, that is for a few people. this is a healthy portion. >> i'm going to try it. >> great. that east-west. >> yeah. >> oh, it's delicious. >> this is amazing. >> still falls apart in your mouth. thank you sosomuch. you can get these recipes and more at today.com/food. we're back in a moment. but first, this is "today" on

public good, he'll also do awful things in the name of doing right.t% >> do people see these large in life characters in this, and they think that the story's just about them. so much of what's great about "billions" is the nuance and reactions and how the workings reallyly affects the family. >> it is about the
family. two really powerful women in this story i think whoave real marriages. it almost plays against type in some ways. we think about business and finance and money as these -- about numbers. it's about people and about their families. the big decisions that get madee happen oftentimes at home. it's about the nuances that i think we often miss. >> got a real heavy-hitting cast. you can catch the premiere this sunday on shotime. we're back with much more on a friday morning.
