and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. abe, abe, abe. abe vigoda has died. 94 years old. amazing actor in movies like that, the "godfather." on television, shows like "barney miller." that face, who could forget that face and that sense of humor? >> what about that big heart? so many times he came to stud joe guests. you don't kiss anyone on the head, matt. we'll look back shortly. our top story, one protester in oregon shot dead, eight others arrested at the fbi and police look to end the siege at a wildlife refuge. >> good morning. 25 days into this occupation, authorities decided it was time
turned violent. the confrontation turned out not at the wildlife refuge but a highway 50 miles away. some members of the anti-government group were driving to a community meeting. >> reporter: along a rural highway, the fbi and oregon state police stopped the occupying vehicles to arrest members of the group when authorities say shots were fired. though they would not elaborate on two fire ed who fired. lavoy finicum was shot, who was a spokesperson. >> there are things more important than your life, and freedom is one of them. >> reporter: nbc spoke by phone with finicum's daughter. >> i want to know why. i know my dad. he would never put someone's life in jeopardy. he would only defend his life. >> reporter: another was injured, treated at the hospital and turned over to the fbi. in all, eight anti-government occupiers are behind bars,
bundy and his brother. 59-year-old cox was also arrested. we saw her making soup shortly after the occupation began. >> we are setting ourselves up to help them reclaim their land back. >> i have to go again. >> reporter: another arrest happened in arizona, where john had returned home. he posted a video on facebook, hugging his kids before turning himself in. the armed protesters took control of the wildlife refuge on january 2nd. they're calling for local control of the federal land and demanding freedom for two oregon ranchers convicted of lighting fires on government land. many county residents wanted the group to leave, but authorities made no forceful attempt to stop the occupation until now. >> some armed militants remain at the refuge. the occupation isn't over,
those arrested face felony charges of conspiracy to impede officers. >> thank you. another major story this morning. donald trump's decision to pull out of tomorrow night's republican presidential debate, which comes just days before the iowa caucuses. we have complete coverage, beginning with nba national correspondent peter alexander. good morning. >> matt, good morning. we're live this morning from iowa. barely 100 hours out from caucus day. this, of course, is farm country, which is fitting given the fact that donald trump is locked in a high stakes game of chicken with both fox news and ted cruz. >> reporter: taking a page out of his art of the deal play book, donald trump is walking away from the table. abruptly announcing he'll skip tomorrow night's republican debate. >> let's see how much money fox is going to make on the debate without me, okay? let's see. >> reporter: a trump aide telling nbc news it's not under consideration is and his word is bond. rival ted cruz immediately
one, 90-minute debate dual, and hit the billionaire for backing out. >> donald is a fragile soul. if someone did that, didn't show up at the interview, you know what you'd say? you're fired. >> reporter: trump's latest fox news feud escalated after the network criticized trump and he again slammed megyn kelly for being unfair. their dispute dating back to the last debate when they went head to head on her questions about women. kelly responded to the air last night. >> trump has repeatedly brought up that exchange as evidence as alleged bias. it was a tough but fair question, and we agreed to disagree. >> reporter: the network fired back overnight, with a statement charging trump's campaign manager with threatening kelly. we can't give into ter ter ter terrorizations with any employees.
touting the endorsement, with another evangelical packing cruz. iowans are urged to vote for anyone but trump. trump's past comments on "meet the press." >> i'm pro choice. >> in 1999, you said you were pro choice in all respects. >> what did i say? read the full statement. >> are you a trustworthy. >> very trustworthy. more than you because you didn't read the question. >> i'm pro-choice. i hate the -- >> why didn't you say, when you asked the question before, that i hate the concept of abortion? do you apologize? >> i -- >> do you apologize? >> do i apologize for reading your words? >> for not reading my words. >> i'm very pro choice. >> do you apologize for not reading my words? >> of course, we never apologized.
debate, you decide if it's a bluff or mistake. donald trump isn't letting up. again this morning on twitter, calling megyn kelly a lightweight reporter. he plans to hold a simultaneous event on thursday to support veterans and wounded ware ed ed warriors. >> thank you, peter. let's turn to michael, who is in des moines this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> it's always been an article of faith in republican campaigns that you tiptoe around fox news or don't antagonize fox news. that's the republican electorate. is donald trump smart or will he live to regret this one? >> i think he's on track to dominate the news. we've moved from the silly season here to tension city. days to go before the voting. fox news put out a very provocative, confrontational statement. they showed donald trump one finger, and donald trump showed them one finger and then punched
he has thrown the debate into chaos in the closing days in iowa. he is showing strength, which is his brand, and he's got some endorsements and other tricks up his sleeve to do what he's done the whole campaign, dominate. >> let's talk about this. you talked about the punch and counter punch. this seems to have set trump off. a fox news spokeswoman gave this statement, we learned from a back channel the ayatollah and putin plan to treat donald trump unfairly when he becomes president, and trump has his own secret plan to replace the cabinet with twitter followers to see if he should even go to the meetings. what was the strategy there? was that smart of fox, to spoke the bear? >> no. journalistically and tactically, it wasn't a good move. a news organization sponsoring a debate should treat all participants with respect and itself. fox decided to continue to go
they have a right to have megyn kelly be a moderator. trump can decide whether to participate. but putting out that provocative statement, they gave him not just an excuse but, i think, a genuine rational to say, i'm not going to show up by an organization that's taunting me. >> ted cruz wasted no time. he jumped in and said, look, i'll challenge you, donald, to a one on one debate with no moderator, seemingly taking away the obstacles. how can trump duck that? >> well, it's going to be an interesting question, to see whether cruz keeps that up and if it becomes an issue. ted cruz must win iowa more than donald trump. the stakes are higher for him. trump leads in the other 49 states effectively. trump, i don't think, will do a one on one debate with cruz. make no mistake, right now, trump has a lot of momentum going on in iowa.
trump is trying hard to win. cruz has to stop him. i'm not sure fighting about debate it is the way to stop donald trump. >> mark in des moines, thank you. for the democrats, bernie sanders heads to the white house today for a sit down with president obama. the president remained neutral for months but this week in an interview, he heaped praise on hillary clinton, saying she was, quote, more experienced than any non-vice president has ever been seeking the office. we will be live next monday for complete coverage of the caucuses. dangerous situation in california. we showed you this video on tuesday. costal erosion leaving several apartment buildings teetering on the edge of a cliff. incredibly, some residents are fighting to stay in their homes. nbc's gabe gutierrez is there. good morning. >> matt, good morning. city officials plan to be out here twice a day to inspect this land. there are 20 apartment units
are refusing to budge. >> reporter: it's the cliff cliff-hanger that's drawn worldwide attention. this morning, residents insist it's safe. >> where else can you live along the coast for $1500 a month? it's a poor man's malibu. >> reporter: mark isn't ready to say good-bye to the view, so he filed an appeal, challenging the evacuation order. >> if you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space. >> reporter: michelle has lived in pacifica five years. >> i love it here. i'm not willing to leave. >> reporter: she's among the few still spending the night here, ignoring the yellow signs. >> to say, oh, we have to get out, why? if it falls, it's not going to fall in ten seconds. plenty of time to get out the front door. >> reporter: the erosion blamed on a ferocious el nino. strong storms pacifica has battled before. city council members approved an emergency declaration, allowing
residents are allowed in the units to pack during the day, but police say there's no deadline for them to finish moving out. >> do you feel safe here? >> at this point right now, yes, i do. >> reporter: still, he says he's complying with the evacvation evacuation order. packing up his closet and figuring out what's next for him and his dog. >> things happen for a reason, but i think they're making more out of that than they need to be. >> this area has dealt with this before. two other apartment buildings nearby were evacuated in 2010 and sat unoccupied since then. more rain is expected here later this week. matt? >> gabe gutierrez, thank you very much. there are new developments flint, michigan. the mayor says it could cost $1.5 billion to fix the lead-contaminated water system there. nbc news learned from water officials there are currently no lead pipes being replaced.

immediately made the announcement, you felt >> yes. >> i was surprised to hear you say shame and guilt. why would you feel shame? >> it sounds crazy, but when i think, you know -- when you hold a secret, the feelings just come along with that, especially when you hold a secret as long as i did. you know, with something like ms, you know, you lose control over things that you once had. you. it can chip away at your self-worth, and you can feel lessened. a lot of negative feelings. you have to ask for help sometimes, which is something i'm not good at doing. but you have to be able to reach out. when you have a good support system, like i have, i think it helps a lot. it took me this long to be able to do this. >> your diagnosis came 15 years ago. your symptoms at the time were what? >> at the time, were minimal. it was heaviness, tingling in my

i wanted to be an example of strength and show him that despite what i have or my limitations, that everyone is deserving of opportunity and love and respect. you know, sometimes we have to work a little bit harder for it, but maybe it'll be a good example for him. >> you released a couple of tweets on that day, and you said, this is a hard but liberating day for me, and i hope together, we can help others and fight on. you said, i'm overwhelmed with all of you today. thank you from the bottom of my heart. i don't feel so alone. >> i was so overwhelmed with -- i didn't anticipate the level of responsibility that i now feel, of representing a group of people that suffer in silence. maybe don't feel represented. ms is different for everyone. it looks different in everyone. it's a hard thing to diagnosis. it's a hard pill to swallow. it's a frustrating disease and, you know, i know there's a lot of people that are better off
