7:00 am
the three americans released in a prisoner swap with iran arrived in germany for a reunion with their families. this morning the secret and controversial negotiations to win their freedom. brutal. 52 million americans from the midwest to the east coast waking up to bitter cold temperatures this morning as much of the northeast is hit with its first snow of the season. we're tracking it all. and not sticking the landing. an unmanned spacex rocket touches down and then suddenly topples over, exploding into pieces. what the team behind the ill-fated mission is saying about it, today, monday, january 18th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from
7:01 am
welcome to "today" on monday morning, martin luther king day. i'm matt lauer. alongside tomorrow ron hall for savannah guthrie who is taking the day off. can we go back to the rocket, the spacex folks saying we got it, we got it, we got, we don't got it. do you get half credit for that. >> you do because you're elon musk and he's tony stark. >> we'll have more on that but let us start with the top story, the most intense democratic debate so far of the presidential campaign so far. hillary clinton clashing with bernd on some big issues in this race. we have complete coverage starting with nbc's andrea mitchell who co-moderate that had debate. andrea, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. well, with the democratic contest a lot closer than anyone had predicted, the candidates have been getting increasingly combative and that produced a fiery debate just two weeks before the iowa caucuses.
7:02 am
from the start, first over guns. >> i have made it clear based on senator sanders' own record that he has voted with the nra, with the gun lobby numerous times. >> secretary clinton knows that what she says is very disingenuous. i have a d-minus voting record from the nra. >> and then health care, clinton accusing sanders of trying to kill obamacare by proposing a new medicare for all programs. >> now, there are things we can do to improve it, but to tear it up and start over again, pushing our country back into that kind of a contentious debate i think 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! >> firing back sanders blasted clinton's ties to wall street. >> i don't take money from big banks. i don't get personal speaking
7:03 am
>> i can take that, but he's criticized president obama for taking donations from wall street and president obama has led our country out of the great recession. >> you've received over $600,000 in speaking fees from goldman sachs in one year. >> you're the only one on this stage that voted to deregulate the financial market in 2000. >> reporter: as to what role her husband would play if she won the white house. >> well, it will start at the kitchen table. we'll see how it goes from there and i -- i'm going to ask for his ideas. i'm going to ask for his advice, and i'm going to use him as a goodwill emissary to go around the country to find the best ideas we've got. >> reporter: asked whether he regrets having recalled bill clinton's past transgressions disgraceful and unacceptable sanders called it old news.
7:04 am
you know that. we've been through this. yes, his behavior was deplorable. have i ever once said a word about that issue, no, i have not. >> reporter: but sanders showed no reluctance to trumpet his own surge in iowa and new hampshire polls. >> when this campaign began she was 50 points ahead of me. we were all of three percentage points. guess what in, iowa, new hampshire, the race is very, very close. >> reporter: and, in fact, after the debate, south carolina's leading democratic congressman james clyburn told us 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 cliburn had realized and that it could mean a replay of 2008 when hillary clinton lost to barack obama here. back to you, matt. >> andrea mitchell, and imia, thanks. nice job last night, by the way. so will what we heard from the candidates change the dynamic of the democratic race?
7:05 am
director and moderator of "meet the press." chuck, good morning to you. chuck. did you see a winner last night, a clear winner? >> reporter: well, i don't know if it was a clear winner but this was clearly the bernie sanders debate. if you were an alien and plopped down on the earth and didn't see any of the polls or follow the race would you have 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 of the issues set than bernie sanders so i think in many ways this was bernie sanders' big moment. now whether he was able to earn new supporters i think that's what we're going to find out in next week. i think he did nothing last night to lose anybody and if anything he fired up his base. >> how do you like his tactic of tying secretary clinton to the big banks and wall street? is it effective? >> reporter: i think in democratic primary it's very effective.
7:06 am
mean, matt, you have donald trump and bernie sanders both trashing wall street because what wall street also does when you say it it tells the voter, hey, they are part of the insider game. wall street/washington. they have been conflated as far as the political environment is concerned and what the voter hears it's insider rigged game that doesn't benefit me. >> and quickly before i ask you to take a break and come back to 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? >> reporter: well, i don't think they are there yet. i thought the most fascinate being development last night was that hillary clinton basically wrapped herself in president obama. i think we know her strategy which is to tell democrats, hey, do you like president obama? did you love him? i'm the one who is going to do whatever it takes to carry his legacy. bernie sanders, he wants a big revolution. he doesn't think barack obama was -- was good enough. >> all right. channel 6, action news, as i
7:07 am
we'll talk about the republicans in just a moment with front-runners donald trump and ted cruz sharpening their attacks against each other. nbc national correspondent peter alexander keeping an eye on that. peter, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning. you had another one of those warm and fuzzy feelings wouldn't last. donald trump and ted cruz neck in neck in iowa just two weeks to the caucuses. they are unleashing a series of attacks with crump's latest crumbs, if you will, not over policy but personality. so much for playing nice for donald trump and ted cruz. >> he's a nasty guy. nobody likes him. nobody in congress likes him. nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him. >> reporter: cruz is fighting back against trump and the new york tabloids after they condemn condemned the senator's attacks on new york values. >> our friends in the media, seem like they lit their hair on fire. what are the new york values of which you speak? now, i would say in the rest of america people know exactly what that means. >> reporter: cruz's strategy,
7:08 am
him tweeting the billionaire's comments from "meet the press" in 1999. pro-choice and open to gay marriage. >> i lived in new york city and manhattan all my life, okay, so, you know, my views are a little bit different than if i lived in iowa perhaps. >> reporter: trump's argument. cruz is a hypocrite, privately raising money in new york and getting loans from its big banks. >> he wants to look like robinhood, that he's the one protecting the people from the banks. well, he's actually borrowing money and personally guaranteeing it and not disclosing it which is illegal. >> reporter: attacks that may not sit well with the party's right wing. one influential commentator warning trump either cut the crap or you'll lose lots and lots of conservatives. >> right? >> reporter: 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. >> reporter: under fire on the trail, cruz not missing a chance to get back at his chief critic, even after getting stuck in an elevator. >> all right.
7:09 am
charge of the elevator? >> reporter: friendship now for the record for "snl." >> i'm glad everyone is talking about my good friend rafael eduardo cruz. >> reporter: with trump and cruz crabbing all the headlines, the rivals, of course, are fighting to get in the fray as well. marco rubio bashing cruz for his campaign donations and jeb bush hitting trump for being too liberal and even john kasich getting a small boost with three new hampshire papers endorsing him as the best man for the job. 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 skewer others, other politicians, especially democrats, but it seems there is a line when it comes to ted cruz. explain the line. >> reporter: well, look. ted cruz and donald trump, they do share some of the same sort of anti-establishment outside supporters. you saw what peter was talking about.
7:10 am
to trump, a radio talk show host by the name of mark levin. donald trump in his wore against political correctness, it has really been very popular with the talk radio crowd, but ted cruz sort of more strident conferenceational conservative in washington, he's popular with the talk radio crowd and the talk radio crowd are more principled conservatives. if they had a choice they would probably vote ted cruz over trump and that's the warning shot to trump. that's why it's a precarious strategy to him. he could hurt himself as much as he helps himself by going after cruz. >> chuck todd this morning with us, chuck, thank you very much. appreciate this. another major story this morning, a prisoner swap with iran to secure the freedom of four americans. three of them arriving in germany overnight as they begin making their way home. we have two reports for you beginning with nbc's keir simmons in landstuhl, jerell any. keir, good morning. >> reporter: hey, tamron, good morning. one of the freed americans is
7:11 am
states. matt trevithick was met at logan airport and three more spent the night here, and we're told that they were in good spirits this morning. this was jason rezaian's first taste of freedom. the "washington post" reporter met by u.s. officials. he's now one of three at the u.s. medical facility in landstuhl, germany. >> that's spectacular news. we're just so happy. can't wait to see him. >> reporter: in a flurry of activity his editors arrived to meet him. what did he say? >> he said i feel a whole lot better than i did 48 hours ago which has to be the understatement of the weekend. >> sounds in high spirits and indicated that he wants human contact and wants to see other people. >> reporter: former marine amir hekmati's sister was flying in for a reunion. >> we've been on pins and needles dying to see him. we haven't seen him in four and
7:12 am
>> reporter: while a pastor, saeed abedini has been four years locked up. >> it's unbelievable. out of iranian soil and in germany and after some medical attention i'm waiting to hear from him. >> reporter: an emotional and momentous 48 hours, the men emerging from an aircraft. >> we're united in welcoming home sons and husbands and brothers who in lonely prison cells have endured an absolute nightmare. >> reporter: simultaneously america releasing iranian prisoners, sanctions lifted and events viewed by republicans and one said one american didn't come home. former fbi agent bob levenson is missing, promising to help find him a statement from his family says we are devastated. a mystery surrounds a fifth american who was freed but chose not to leave iran. we don't know why. perhaps he didn't want the attention because, tamron, we're told that the others were
7:13 am
day, and it may be days before they can leave here while they undergo psychological evaluation. tamron. >> keir simmons thanks so much, let's get more on this from rich engel in tehran. richard, what's the mood there time >> reporter: well, this is an extraordinary time to be here in tehran. the mood is one of expectation and optimism. people are encourageled by the deal. they think they got the better half of the deal, and they are looking forward to a better economy. the sanctions that had been put in place now lifted devastated the iranian economy and put a stranglehold on the economy. it is a 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. now iran can, although oil clearly is not worth what it used to be, and tens of billions of dollars have been unfrozen. that money hasn't hit the economy he had, but it could
7:14 am
we were just in the bazaar area, right in the heart of iran, the commercial center of therefore city, and people were already talking about stocking up their inventory. they are expecting more tourists to come. i was probably the only american. i was certainly the only american i saw in the bazaar area. people came up to me and said we hope more americans come. we want to do business, so definitely a mood of hope. >> richard, you point out logical reasons why the people there would be encouraged, but what is the government telling its own people? >> reporter: well, the president rouhani gave a national address and he said that this was a victory for iran, a victory for revolution. he said it was also a win-win and that all the countries around the world supported this deal with the exception of what he said were warmongers in the region, israel, and what he
7:15 am
which many here interpreted as a reference to donald trump and some of the other republican candidates. >> richard, thank you so much. >> and let us now move to iran's neighbor iraq. right now iraqi forces are scrambling to find a group of americans who disappeared over the weekend in baghdad. iraqi officials say the u.s. nationals were kidnapped from their interpreter's home, that according to the associated press. the americans were apparently taken to sadr city where all communications and contacts stopped. the u.s. embassy confirms that several americans have gone missing in iraq and the say they are working to locate them. here at home. brutal cold is blanketing a large section of the east with more than 52 million americans under warnings and advisories. dylan is here with the details. we still have a big crowd because it's a holiday, but they are all bundled up obviously. >> objectionly, and i think they were happy to see a little bit of snow. it hasn't been cold enough in new york for snow. >> it's win thor. >> it's winter and finally feels like it.

7:17 am
successfully launching a climate monitoring satellite, the rocket landed on a floating barge in the pacific but a support leg broke and the rocket toppled over and exploded. musk wrote in his instagram post that ice buildup may have been to blame. he even joked at least the pieces were big they are time, that's because the company's two previous ocean landing attempts in 2015 were also unsuccessful. two people were killed after severe weather swept through florida on sunday. there were reports of at least two tornadoes on the gulf coast. you can see the roofs were completely torn off buildings there and downed power lines left thousand of resident in the dark. there was damage on florida's east coast as well as in cocoa beach, the icon inbeach wave surf shop sign snapped in half. somehow look closely, the shark remained unscathed, sharknado. >> i know a little bit about that, thanks.

closet and you're good to go. stick your hands out. hold these. you're going to go inside. see the elbow to elbow. >> this is mystifying. >> now slip this elbow and put these inside of that one. i do feel like a magician. >> there's no way. this is what i do. >> lastly, i love to use these labeled canvas boxes especially for things that are out of season like bathing suits. you throw those in. and things that you're not using frequently you put up on the top shelf like bathing suits. and put the things you're using more frequently like hats and gloves and switch it out. i'm going to have you work on this. i promise you there's going to be a day when you can do this. >> thank you so much.
