7:03 am
coming more and more down to a two-man race, between me and donald trump. >> reporter: ted cruz in new hampshire no longer holding back. >> donald trump has said he thinks eminent domain is fantastic, and he supports using government power to seize private people's homes. >> reporter: trump getting personal with cruz. >> he's a nasty guy. nobody likes him. >> reporter: cruz dismissing that attack with a tweet featuring this janet jackson hit. >> donald the last couple of days has been a little rattled. his poll numbers went down, and he got a little upset. >> reporter: even conservative commentators are questioning trump's tactics. take rush limbaugh. >> whatever you want to say, cruz is not a nasty gay. when you get into criticism, it better be believable. >> reporter: under fire from being too liberal, trump is comparing himself to another former democrat. >> ronald reagan, when he was younger, was a very, you know,
7:04 am
became quite conservative. >> ronald reagan did not spend the first 60 years of his life supporting democratic politicians. >> reporter: on the trail, the tycoon is turning to his trump card, ivanka. >> this man will make america great again. >> reporter: at virginia's liberty university monday courting evangelical voters trump stumbled on scripture. >> 2 corinthians, 3:17 is the whole ball game. is that the one you like? >> it's second, not 2 corinthians. unfazed trump compared his best-seller to the word of god. who was read "the art of the deal" in this room. >> i always say a deep, deem second to the bible. the bible is the best, the bible blows it away. nothing like the bible. >> reporter: so now as for donald trump's special guest in iowa tonight the speculation is swirling on line that it could be of all people sarah palin, sarah palin has praised both trump and ted cruz in the past
7:05 am
hour still no confirmation from the campaign. matt and satchna. >> peter alexander, thank you. >> we'll talk about that speculation in a while. on the democratic side thousands turned out to hear bernie sanders speak at a rally in alabama last night while hillary clinton was busy campaigning in iowa where the two, as you know, are running neck and neck. nbc eandrea mitchell has more on that race. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. with less than two weeks to go before the first votes in iowa, hillary clinton and bernie sanders are turning up the heat, each hoping for a breakout victory in the iowa caucuses. >> when we began we were 50 points behind, 50 points behind the inevitable, inevitable democratic nominee. >> reporter: bernie sanders isn't letting up, putting pressure on hillary clinton in front of a massive alabama crowd monday night. >> that inevitable candidate
7:06 am
>> reporter: the vermont senator is also making a case about his electability in a general election. >> the last poll just came out yesterday, had us 15 points ahead of our very good friend donald trump. while and clinton is hitting republicans. >> i'll say one thing about the republicans, they may be wrong but they are consistent. >> reporter: speaking in iowa late monday about the economy, health care an education and calling into the rachel maddow show from the road. >> if you win the nomination, how do you win bernie sanders' supporters over? >> i have to keep working as hard as i can to convince as many people to support me as possible. >> reporter: a new nbc news survey monkey online poll this morning shows if the primary or caucus were held today 52% would vote for clinton, 36% for sanders. but both campaigns acknowledge the race is tightening in iowa
7:07 am
if clinton should lose both, south carolina democrats say sanders is developing a field operation to challenge her there, so both candidates are getting more combative, barnstorming iowa this week. sanders today holding four different events, turning up the heat on clinton who is desperate to avoid a replay of her disastrous third place finish in iowa in 2008. and if sanders can win in these early states, he has plenty of money to prolong the nomination fight, something the clinton team had never anticipated when she launched her campaign last year. matt and savannah. >> all right, andrea mitchell, andrea, thanks very much. mark halperin is managing editor of bloomberg politics and nicolle wallace is an msnbc political analyst an served as an adviser to the mccain/palin campaign. good morning to both of >> you good morning. >> neck in neck between sanders and clinton. she's gone after him on guns, electability, his stance on health care. nothing seems to be working. you know what her choice is now.
7:08 am
what are the risks for her? >> well, she needs to have a positive message and a negative message and still hasn't defined her positive message. on the negative message she hasn't chosen it. what does she want to say about bernie sanders, he's not electable, and she has to pick something, her indecisiveness about what's in her heart she really wants to say about bernie sanders to try to beat him and stop his momentum which she's not done yet. >> certain irony because on the democratic side they are facing something similar to what the republicans are facing is all the passion in the party is on the polls, the poles, on the sides and he wants to do this, that and the other pie in the sky dreams that he can't get done and is that inspiring as a message? >> it's not and i remember the morning. first debate we sort of marked the beginning of her fall surge and going back to 2008 she's losing the head candidates, not
7:09 am
she's never been able to fix that structural problem she has running in the democratic primary. >> let me stick with you for a second and let's move to the republicans. donald trump is promising today a big endorsement. >> huge. >> huge, sorry. i'll use his word. huge endorsement coming in iowa. everybody is speculating that it could be sarah palin. what do you know? >> i don't know anything. i didn't know anything when i did work for her, but she is someone, and i rarely say this about endorsements, but she could actually tip the scales in his favor because the voter that is influenced by sarah palin is the very last voter who is still on the fence perhaps between cruz and his arch rival now trump, so she has praised both of them. they are both her kind of republicans, and if she puts her finger on the scale for trump, it could be impactful in iowa. >> before i get to my next question, do you have any reporting on it? >> two republicans have told me it's palin, but the trump campaign isn't saying. donald trump's political director used to be a top adviser to sarah palin.
7:10 am
acting about it i betcha it might be sarah palin. >> got some swagger. >> as nicole said, she's been very close to ted cruz and in a trump-cruz looking for every advantage, this is a psychological and big win for trump if he gets this. >> real quick, conservative talk radio, a couple of big hosts kind of unleashed what i considered to be a shout across the bow to trump, nine to take on cruz, don't call him naflty and raising birther issue. is trump likely to be swayed by that? does it matter, should it? >> a little bit of danger, a guy who has taken on fox news and plenty of establishment and anti-establishment parts of the party, so i don't think he needs to worry about it, but he does need to watch it because talk radio has been very good to him and doesn't want to give up that advantage. >> all right, guys. thanks very much, and you betcha we'll be watching what happens in iowa a little later this afternoon. by the way, we're taking the show on the road to iowa. we'll be live in des moines on the morning of the caucuses talking to candidates and voters alike. >> all right. now to the tense mood on wall
7:11 am
off to the worst start to a year ever, investors are bracing for another wild week. let's go to jim cramer, host of "mad money" on cnbc. he's at the new york stock exchange this morning. jim, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> the dow has lost 8% of its value in the two weeks since trading began. that is not good. are you looking at this as potentially a technical correction, or is this just a blip? should we be worried about broad signs in the economy? >> well, i think the economy is slowing, so we have to accept the fact that stock prices could correct another 3%, 4%, but things are so crazy out there, savannah. we're looking up 2%, 3% today. i do not think that's sustainable and i want to caution people. don't get too excited. we're not out. woods. >> overnight the markets did okay overseas so you think we might have an okay day today. >> well, i think we'll have an okay morning. we've not been able to sustain anything positive for a full day. i know that it seems like it's ridiculous that the federal reserve just raised rates last
7:12 am
slowing, but it is slowing, and it's slowing worldwide. >> and let's talk about why. i know you and a lot of analysts say it's oil. the price of oil is plummeting, and it's right at this place that you consider to be a threshold. if it gets to $25 a barrel, you say we've got a real problem. >> yes. i mean, look, there's ten states involved in the production of oil, but they will be hurt. more importantly we will see bankruptcies. the oil companies cannot handle below $25. they will be losing a lot of money, and unless world growth picks up, particularly chinese growth and that's what's exciting to people today, that maybe china will stimulate, you'll see bankruptcies and a slowdown that's out of sync with the federal reserve that wants to raise rates perhaps four times in 2016. >> we'll be watching the price of oil and at the moment that iran is looking to add more oil to the market, the world market. jim cramer at the stock exchange, we'll keep in touch. thank you. >> thank you. let's take a look at some other news this morning and we're hearing from the families of those americans who were released from captivity in iran

7:16 am
get you worked up just yet. the energy for the system is still off the pacific coast and then has to make its way in. but the way we look -- what we're looking at right now, by thursday the system makes its way into the central and southern plains. snow from memphis to tone "k." again, maybe 3 to 4 inches of snow, but known friday it sets up along the eastern seaboard. a wide swath of snow is possible, but heavy snow in the appalachians, and as we get friday into saturday, depending on the model, we could see heavy snow from boston all the way back to washington, d.c. again, we're not going to give you any accumulations, but the potential is there for a decent amount of snow. measured possibly in a foot or more and then sunday it moves off the coast. the other differentiating factor here is the cold air. feels like 13 below in chicago and 1 in washington and 2 in new york city and over the next three days while these temperatures moderate they are

7:34 am

up next, the right way to decipher those beauty product labels that can sometimes be a bit confusing. but, first, on a tuesday
8:40 am
we're back at 8:47. consumers have become savvy with reading food labels and understanding the ingredients but what about skin care and cosmetics. today.com/style editor is here about thinking why you may want to think twice about the products you're using. good morning, good to see you. >> good morning, savannah. >> a lot of people think the beauty products we see have to be approved by the fda before they can be on shelf. is that true? >> false, completely false. products are not approved by the fda before they hit store shelves. it doesn't mean the product is helpful but it's up to the consumer to be responsible. >> which means we want to get educated? >> absolutely. >> does fda have the ability to
8:41 am
>> they cannot. they can only ask a company to do so. >> what are some of the watch words as far as we're concerned when you're looking hat labels? >> very easy to be confused about this because products will use as a marketing strategy, natural or green, synthetic-free. these are not official terms so don't be fooled by that. realize also that even if something is natural, poison ivy humans. >> sounds good, might be green labeling, but you really need to look closely. around. >> which brings us to our next monitor here. when you do pull that bottle around there's words like -- i don't think i can profouns that, phthalates and parabens. >> it's considered a trade secret so companies do not have to disclose what the fragrance is made of, if you have allergies or sensitive skin, something to look out for. >> may mean some other chemicals that they don't have to list. >> exactly.
8:42 am
>> parabens are used as a preservative and help products last longer and phthalates make you feel silky and smooth and they are considered endocrine disrirpts which may alter hormones, scientific organizations say. >> i've seen labels that say paraben free. some people want to avoid these and look at them >> exactly. we did reach out to the personal care products council for a statement and said their products are one of the safest most regulated by the fda. the fda as well told us that they are not -- they don't have the information to show that these chemicals are harmful, but if you are trying to limit your chemical exposure these are two to look how the for. >> great. let's turn around. little jar with a number. what does the number mean? >> beauty products do expire, just like food, so if you see this little jar, the number inside of it is actually the number of months after you open it you should toss it. >> i have stuff in my counter that's been in there since like the '70s. >> we all do. >> good to look out for it. >> another label if you see the
8:43 am
i've never known what this meant. >> meant it's up to the european union standards and will see it on some products in the u.s. the eu bans more than 1,300 ingredients. the usa bans only 11. it doesn't mean their products are safer but if you're trying to be watchful, something to watch for. >> maybe a little bit of a shortcut. >> these are products you like. tell me about them. >> you'll see some major brands, knew the jena has their own natural line, cleansers, moisturizers, everything you use every day. they avoid phthalates, parabens, things we were talking about earlier. >> what's in? >> mid-priced option and partnered with gwyneth paltrow to launch a cosmetics line, get the same colors, lips, all the makeup you use. >> and i've been hearing about tata harper. >> her rerecipes are amazing, all-natural things can be luxurious. she has her own skin care farm in vermont.

8:46 am
caramelization before we go into the slow cooker. otherwise it won't be as attractive. it will lock in all the juices and that's what we want. >> let's get start with your maiden voyage here. >> no, no, no, i've been testing recipes. >> okay. >> so i know the way of the slow cooker now, but before i didn't know. i was a virgin. slow cooker virgin, that's what i was, matt. >> let's just get to the ingredients. >> we'll mix this together and added our flour and what's that going to do, because we did it with a tomato paste it will make sure we don't have any lumps, we'll also add some beef broth, a little bit of red wine which is fantastic and now we're going to whisk all this together. >> can i mention we've got our tasters downstairs and i have a feeling they are already digging in on this. >> awesome good. >> fabulous root vegetables. got our onions and our shallots, carrots and celery. we'll fought in. what i want you to do is start working on this rosemary. >> sfripg it.

>> al, how are these ribs? >> fantastic. >> amazing. >> you don't even need a knife. don't need a knife. >> yeah. why don't we do this. >> how long are these going to sit in here? >> they have to be covered in the liquid. >> >> absolutely. >> make sure we're covering. more liquid to it. >> that's going to go four hours on high, eight hours on low and then we have our beautiful cheese grits. >> ingredient panel, take a look at what goes into this. >> this is like a grits souffle. we have eggs that will lighten them up. we have worcestershire and hot sauce and sherry. if you don't want to put alcohol in you don't have to. substitute a little vegetable broth maybe. here we are, we're going to mix this, mix and mix and mix. it's going to go into a casserole, greased casserole and then into the oven for about one hour. while that's happening, now our short ribs are fantastic.
8:48 am
in order to get our sauce even better. >> yeah. >> we're going to go ahead and press all of these vegetables that are now so unbelievably tender. see how that's coming out. >> i want to review on the grits downstairs. >> perfect combination. >> yeah. >> so light. >> light. >> they are calling grits light. >> i said it's like a souffle. >> which is just fancy, fancy, fancy. we love a souffle. >> anyway, we're going to go ahead and take that. >> i've got to actually say we're going to pretend that we've done all that. elizabeth with a mouthful i'm

8:52 am
awards and sold more albums than any american band in history. individuals, elvis, michael jackson, people have done better, but no band in american history has sold more albums. glenn frey also, by the way, came up a little later saying "the heat is on." when i first dialed in and worked backward. >> "beverly hills cop." >> right. >> a great soundtrack. >> and the mtv time for us. >> exactly. >> we were lyrics okay, the world is bigger than my neighborhood and he was a part of the world through mtv. >> "miami vice". >> had a little recurring role. >> and the egles is what he'll be remembered for along with don henley and they were american music in the 1970s so we're very sad to report his passing. >> you came up a couple of years after us. >> yes. >> a couple. >> just a couple. >> but "hotel california" takes me back to when i was living in spain and hanging out with my friends at a club. >> and that music was so much. it was radio music. >> yeah.
8:53 am
"desperado." that sing-along kind of music. >> that's the great part of the eagles and his career. for you it's radio music, for us it's mtv. over the holidays my nephew isaiah who is 19, we were sitting around just the two of us, and we started playing, you know, the best of the eagles, and i'm explaining to him and before i knew it "hotel california ""blasting because you can't listen to it low. way too low and you just escape. >> "peaceful's feeling." >> and they had such legs with their popularity. they were asked to get back together for a reunion tour in the '90s and they said who is going to come see a bunch of old guys play and they say they walked out, after they were convinced, first showers, and there were 75,000 people and i guess there's another generation who want to hear our music. year. >> they had to postpone. supposed to be in the kennedy center honors and unfortunately because of glenn frey's health.
8:54 am
also missed, actors of color who were nominated for an academy award this year. none, so here are all the nominees, okay. there you go. for best actor, supporting actor, supporting actress and day after last week's nominations oscar host chris rock tweeting the oscars oscars -- #oscars, the white b.e.t. awards. since then two a-listers have said they were not going to go to the event, of course, jada pinkett smith one of them. posted this video on youtube talking about her friend, host chris rock. >> begging for acknowledgement or even asking diminishes dignity and diminishes power. hey, chris, i will not be at the academy awards and i won't be watching, but i can't think of a better man to do the job at hand this year than you, my friend. good luck. >> it's interesting because a
8:55 am
pressure on chris rock to boycott, which i don't think he should do. >> to drop out of hosting. >> to drop out from hosting because i think he'll address those issues. >> neil patrick harris address it had the last time around, and now chris rock will likely obviously do the same thing. the question is will this always be addressed as the joke in the monologue because i know people keep saying chris rock will make them listen. enhas did it as well and trevor noah, i love his show, had the funniest joke, "straight out of compton," a hip-hop movie and the two best people nominate were white and "creed," black director, black lead, black supporting actress and the one person nominated is white, sill vestier stallone and brilliant in that, and i think those movies aside this is a conventional wisdom,
8:56 am
indress alba, a lot of people pointed out, maybe a 70-year-old white guy may not get "straight out of compton," it should be because that's what you do for a person. you are a movie person but like a performance that stops you in your tracks with a brilliant story, brilliant cinematography i think people are really honing in and asking why. >> they will have to change the think -- problem. problem, absolutely. those are the people who vote, and i think sheryl -- president cheryl boone isaacs responded and says she's heartbroken and frustrated. as many of you know we've implemented changes to diversify our membership. change is not coming as fast as you like and we need to do more better and quickly. >> i worry about that because that implies that if the art looks like you that's the only art you're understanding and they are saying 60-year-old white guys but these are people who work in that industry. it's not as if they went to the
8:57 am
and recruited the 70-year-old cook there. these are individuals who work in that industry that's seen as the most liberal bastion of our country. i'm asking. >> are they diverse, and obviously not enough and so they have to start, the industry itself, has to start bringing in more diversity, i mean, all kinds of diversity to that industry so that they have a bigger pool to pick from. >> well, clearly it's such an important issue, and it is -- it has divided the academy and its members so they have to do something about it and they are addressing it. >> it would be nice to see a few non-african-american on non-color actors speak out, jessica chastain did a great speech last year where she did a great speech as well. >> absolutely. >> on the chris rock question, think about the impact. what has a bigger impact, him staying at home or on a stage in front of 100 million people around the world for ten minutes and making a commentary and also coming from him, a guy who has
8:58 am
race in america. that's the thrust of what he talks about. >> he's perfect person to be front and center on the issue and to be able to talk about it. february 28. harvey. >> gave you a little preview yesterday and more now today. he sat down with miss columbia to talk about the mistake that made world headlines, as you know, when he incorrectly named her miss universe last month and i asked steve about the night before the pageant. there were suggestions you were out drinking and gambling in vegas the night before. >> i've never been drunk a day in my life. do i gamble in vegas i? gamble in vegas all the time but i was as rehearsal. did a full run-through with everybody, perfectly. >> what was it that was hardest for new all that have. >> with all the support that i intense. >> you said you had death threats. >> oh, man.

treatment and new information about peloton zika virus. big medical headlines and here with that is what you need to know to protect your health with medical contributor dr. natalie azar. new information about ivf and how it relates to test tube babies, some calling this a real breakthrough. tell us what it is and how significant. >> traditionally you have the egg and sperm are fertilized in a dish and then the embryo is implanted into the womb. >> right. >> in this technique what the british researchers have done is actually insert the egg and sperm and put it into a tiny capsule an put the capsule in the womb and allow fertilization to occur there, the idea being the capsule has little tiny holes in it so there's some symbiotic exchange of fluid between, you know, the embryo and the mother and then the capsule is taken out and the researchers then select the healthiest embryos and reimplant those -- reinsert for implantation. they have done this in around 250 women internationally. they can't yet say whether or
9:07 am
less than traditional ivf but, again, the idea here is there might be some advantage to mother and baby to have the early exchange of fluids, that's the idea behind it. >> potential good news. the next development on the zika virus. for people who don't know what it is, the zika virus and what's the news in. >> the zika virus has been making headlines lately and the cdc has issued a travel warning for women who are either pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant to travel to -- as of saturday 17 latin american that this virus, which is rather -- i don't want to say benign, but rather innocuous in normal healthy individuals, that it doesn't really cause sickness in the majority of people and when it does it's usually a viral syndrome but there's a concern that came out of brazil in the last couple of months that the zika virus could be associated with this condition called microceph ha ly code for small brain or brain damage, especially in the first trimester, exposure to zika virus in the mother could expose a risk to the developing child
9:08 am
formation that really has had adverse outcomes for the child. >> a mosquito-borne illness. there was a case in hawaii recently as well. >> importantly the case reported over the weekend from hawaii was the first case of a child born in this country with microceph ha ly, with documentation that the mother had probably contracted zika virus, but, importantly, the virus was acquired abroad and imported into a had a. this was not a locally acquired infection and that's important. we still don't have any evidence of that occurring in the continental united states. >> and quickly, natalie, before we go. ct scans, reports says more people are getting them. why is that significant? >> right. the numbers are actually quite staggering, i think twice as many cat scans are being perform in the last ten years. the main significant issue here is radiation. radiation and cost. modalities. they give a lot of information about the inside of the body, particularly bone. are there other tests that can
9:09 am
that do not pose that radiation risk, yes, there are, mris, for example but in an emergency room or urgent care setting when you need information very quickly they prove incredibly useful. they are expensive and insurance needs to approve it and the issue is radiation. if the doctor says would i like to perform a cat scan is request number one is it necessary and, number two, is there an alternative diagnostic test that could be used in lew of a cat scan? sometimes the cat scan is the right test but not always. >> great summary on all the health issues. azar. >> come up, got to star alongside robert de niro and got to chris zach if you're looking to save money on your medicare part d prescriptions, walgreens says, carpe med diem. seize the day to get more out of life and medicare part d. just switch to walgreens for savings
