studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. i'm savannah guthrie and we have carson daly in for matt. i wish i sounded as good as adele did on her technical issues. >> there was something for everybody. >> we'll talk politics, too. our top story is the weather. a wintry mix of snow, ice and heavy rain battering the east coast. the same system, responsible for tornadoes, as well, in the south. nbc's hallie jackson has it covered for us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. we're waking up after the winter weather advisory in 17 states, stretching some 1 rk,200 miles m georgia to maine. in a lot of spots, we expected the snow to turn to rain

hitting a high school during classes. >> we were all getting down and, like, praying. hoping we were being all right. >> reporter: meanwhile in the northeast, a plane headed from the dominican republic to new york city had to be diverted to a snowy manchester, new hampshire, overnight, because runways at jfk were even worse. >> delta 944, a diversion? >> we did, left holding at kennedy and came right up here. >> reporter: here in the washington, d.c. area, snow gave way to freezing rain and sleet. virginia state police responding to more than 500 crashes, as untreated roads and sidewalks became treacherous. with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, it has all the makings for a dangerous commute this morning. >> and we've seen that already here with really icy roads and sidewalks. while the temperatures are expected to climb throughout the day, with steady rain, the concern now is the ice, but the concern for tonight's rushou
>> lots of weather to talk about. thank you. >> mr. roker is here tracking it all. al? >> minutes ago, we got this video from i-81, north of scranton. icy roads causing a massive pile-up. you can see, in fact, a lot of the folks, including this videographer, ran up and got out of the way on the side of a hill. this trucker, stuck there, trying to make calls. they're clearing things out now, and i'm hearing i-81 north of scranton is open again. we've got a tornado watch down in southern florida right now. this is part of the trailing front that hallie was talking about. look how far it goes, all the way to the northeast, cleveland, buffalo, looking at snow. we have winter storm warnings, advisories and wind warnings. 50 million people at risk from north carolina to maine. look at the temperatures. buffalo, 28. syracuse, 34. new york city, 54. 56 in boston. heavy rain ps

brother, the former president, bush 43. george w. bush calling for vision. in a direct contrast to donald trump, praising his brother as thoughtful, trustworthy and measured. will any of it matter? >> reporter: donald trump in the lead. >> we've got a win on saturday. we've got a win. >> reporter: and on the attack, reignited his feud with ted cruz. >> ted is an unstable guy. i've never, ever met a person that lies more than ted cruz. >> reporter: threatening to sue the canadian-born senator over his eligibility. >> he doesn't have the right to serve as president or run as president. he was born in canada. i will bring the lawsuit if he doesn't apologize. >> reporter: cruz laughing it off, saying donald has lost it. >> we are not in grade school where you say, liar, liar, pants on fire and not respond to the subject. >> reporter: the front runner also went after
them of stacking debate audiences with special interests. seeming once again to not rule out a third-party run, going against the gop pledge. >> i signed a pledge. but it's a double-edge pledge. as far as i'm concerned, they're in default of their pledge. >> thanks to brother for giving us something to do today, something important. >> reporter: the last republican to hold the oval office, george w. bush, joined brother jeb on the campaign trail for the first time. the former president repeatedly dismissed the party's front runner without calling out donald trump by name. >> in my experience, the strongest person usually isn't the loudest one in the room. >> reporter: 43 arguing real strength is not empty rhetoric or bluster. >> we don't need someone in the oval office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration. we need someone who can fix the problems that cause our anger and frustration, and that's jeb bush. >> reporter:
attacked w. over the iraq war and 9/11. >> the world trade center came down during his reign. it was like, you know, he was the top. >> reporter: jeb had his big brother's back. >> he didn't know 9/11 would happen but he rolled up his sleeves, inspired us and kept us safe. >> our latest surveymonkey, n brks krrbc online poll, shows 56% of republicans nationally believe donald trump will be their party's nominee. that number is up 14 points in the last week. savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. let's bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning. t >> the road to the nomination goes through south carolina. it has a reputation for being a slugfest and it's not disappointing. what do you make of this latest back and forth between donald trump and ted cruz? trump suggesting he might sue cruz. even
third-party run, threatening the rnc. >> he is a little bit. i think what he's trying to do is keep cruz from getting any momentum. look, in south carolina, it appears to be a two-person race. the winner between trump or cruz, assuming they are battling for first, then the winner will have won 2 of the first 3 and will be the front runner and favorite going forward. that's why you see, basically, trump pulling out all the stops and cruz pulling out all the stops. the threat of the lawsuit, he does have some standing, trump. if he files against -- files with an election law clerk and says, hey, you shouldn't put cruz's name on the ballot, it's hurting me, that is a way for him to have standing with a lawsuit. by the way, the other part of the south carolina, there's two primaries. the second primary is the battle for third place between rubio and bush right now. >> let's talk about this, chuck. we haven't seen a lot of data or polling from south carolina since the debate on saturday. trump has the double digit lead. cruz in second. all eyes, maybe,
is that still where it stands now? >> i think it's where it stands. look, nobody is quite sure how much damage did trump do to himself with the attacks on george w. bush. he is pretty popular in south carolina. there's chatter that he hurt himself. if he did by a few points, he still had a lead. i think that, you know, all of us are not making a living this year trying to predict the demise of donald trump. >> chuck todd, thanks. stick around for your take on the democrats in a moment. speaking of, hillary clinton will deliver a major speech on race in new york city today. bernie sanders heads to south carolina and georgia. for now, all eyes are on the next caucus in nevada, and that's where we find chrkristie welk welker. >> good morning. our latest nbc news surveymonkey online poll shows clinton maintaining her national lead over sanders, 50% to 40%. the race is tighter in states like nevada. she will be courting african-american voters today with the speech
campaigning here in the reno area. >> i love being here. >> reporter: in nevada, hillary clinton is trying to avoid another upset. >> i want to break down all the barriers that stand in the way of americans succeeding. >> reporter: it was this moment that got everyone's attention. >> and the dog, if it's not true, he's going to bark. >> reporter: when she recalled a decades-old political ad that featured a dog that barked when someone lied, arguing the same rules should apply to republicans. >> oh, the great recession was caused by too much regulation. basti bark, bark, you know? >> reporter: this as chelsea stumped in ohio and bill clinton in florida. >> the republican party rewarded the tea party. just tell people what they want to hear. it's going on now in our party. >> reporter: sanders brushed aside clintons'
outreach to african-americans, a group he struggled to work over. >> it's working people standing up and fighting. what is the civil rights movement about? >> reporter: after meeting with the families impacted by the flint water crisis, sanders demanded change. >> if we can rebuild villages in iraq and afghanistan, we can damn well rebuild flint, michigan. >> clinton's address on race will take place in harlem. senator sanders will be courting black voters today. he'll be introduced at a prayer breakfast today by danny glover, who will also join him at a rally later tonight. >> thanks. chuck is still with us. let's talk about the democrats. nevada's caucus on saturday. caucuses, harder to predict for pollst pollsters. when you look at the race and the body language, who looks
>> the clinton campaign seems nervous and the sanders campaign seems confident at this point. this is clearly fairly close. they've both dumped a lot of money in here. this is actually though a must-win for sanders. here's why. there is this idea he can't win in states that are more diverse. nevada is basically 60/40 white to non-white, at least the way the democratic kau kis caucus i to turn out. a narrow loss and the clinton campaign can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing south carolina comes and they're likely to roll there, too. a sanders victory puts more pressure on clinton. then the questions are, oh, maybe sanders can win minority votes. then the pressure on her to win south carolina is as great as it's been in any state so far. >> chuck, do you see a shift in the way hillary clinton is framing this race, with more of a contrast, going right after sanders recently? >> if you listen to bill clinton and chelsea c
make this a referendum on sanders. they know if it's a referendum on hillary clinton, she won't do as well with democratic voters. put the focus on sanders. they think the more attention given to his ideas, his potential tax hikes, lack of foreign policy knowledge, suddenly, it'll give pause to democratic voters and help her. she's always been better when she gets to frame an alternative. that's what they're trying to do now. >> chuck, to put meat on the bones of your first answer, when you say the clinton campaign is acting nervous, what do you mean by that? by the fact they're spending so much time in nevada? >> they realize that it's a -- that losing again, and suddenly you could make an argument that essentially, sanders won the first three contests. the iowa victory, every day that goes by, there's questions about how big was that victory and did she really win, or did she luck out because of the way the counting process is? that's what i mean by that. they'rey
the idea of losing back to back. to lose the first state they faced off against each other that isn't an overly white state, that's what makes them so nervous. that's why, if they can win now, they put away a lot of questions with her. >> thanks so much. now to the nation's capital where the debate rages on over who should replace justice antonin scalia. andrea mitchell has more on that looming battle. good morning. >> good morning. the battle to replace antonin scalia is reshaping that 2016 campaign. with the republican presidential candidates taking a hard line against confirming anyone that president obama nominates. no matter how moderate. >> reporter: it is the one issue on which all the republican candidates agree. no one nominated by barack obama should be considered for the salespeople court. >> the balance of the constitution is at stake. >> the republicans shouldn't allow it to happen. >> we're one justice away from a
majority. >> reporter: for ted cruz, it's personal. he clerked for the high court, argued before it and knew scalia well. within hours of the justice's death, the battle lines were drawn. republican senate leaders saying they won't confirm any obama nominee to the high court. democrats firing back. >> it's unprecedented. it's pure politics. the supreme court, of all places, should not be tied up in politics. >> reporter: the president in california hosting an asian summit, saying he is not backing down. >> those responsibilities described in the constitution are ironclad. there are no caveats. the constitution doesn't include exceptions for election years or the president's last term in office. >> reporter: hillary clinton weighing in, unleashing a flurry of tweets overnight, aimed at gop senators. hillary tweeting, fill this vacancy. potus will do his job. do yours. the scalia succession fight now also a campaign issue for the democrats. >> last time i looked, t
parenthesis. that's not the way our system works. >> the president has a working list, including several candidates who have been supported unanimously for lower courts by republicans. if the republicans won't even consider moderate choices, the president could fire up his own democratic base, nominating a minority. >> a lot of political strategy going into this decision. andrea, thank you very much. in other news, pope francis returned to mexico city last night after a day-long trip. thousands of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the pontiff in his white fiat. a touching moment early in the day. pope francis interrupted the event to come down and bless a child in the
offered advice for creating happy families. saying, quote, do not end the day without making peace. >> it's a version of, never go to bed angry, right? >> great advice, actually. let's get the rest of the forecast. >> kids, i'm sorry about last night. anyway, we're looking at a snowy mess throughout the great lakes. icy conditions here in the northeast. especially north and west of new york city and pockets of the appalachians. also looking at a beautiful day in the southwest, into southern california. we'll look at that more in the next half hour. so my kids don't have to forage, got two jobs to pay a mortgage, and i've also got a brain. life's short, talk is cheap. i'll be working while you sleep. still don't think i've got a brain? you think a resume's enough? who'll step up when things get tough? don't you want that kind of brain? a degree is a degree.

morning, this area was completely iced over. residential neighborhoods, side streets, even major roads had problems due to the freezing rain overnight. but look at what we are starting to see happen as the rain continues to come down and the temperatures are above freezing, expected to continue to rise maybe to the mid-40s. chuck bell will fill us in on those details. but it seems to be improving in terms of the ice melting. roads are still slick, folks. take your time and be careful before you head out this morning. that is the latest, live from leesburg, molette green, news4. >> thank you, molette. tom kierein is in the storm team 4 x 4. >> reporter: what a dramatic
difference in centreville in just the last half hour. rain has changed the roads from slush and ice to just wet, a dramatic change in the last hour or two, around 7:00 this morning everything was ice-covered and slushy. now it is wet. most of the side streets and sidewalks are melting as temperatures are getting quickly above freezing. we're just getting onto route it's about probably moderate rain. we are a little bit farther to the west. we're on braddock road, this was about a half hour ago, the rain was coming down even harder than this. that heavier rain is just beginning to move into the dulles area, as we're just now getting on 28. what's happening on the roads elsewhere, melissa? a live look at the top of the beltway, pretty wet there. we do have a problem, inner loop between connecticut and georgia

a weather alert day for you as we watch for dangerous conditions on the roads around here. storm team 4 x 4 has been out all morning long tracking trouble spots. good morning, everyone, i'm aaron gilchrist. we're expecting conditions to change rapidly over the next few hours. storm team 4 meteorologist chuck bell with what's in store for your neighborhood. hey, chuck. >> aaron, travel trouble still having major issues especially on the shenandoah valley with icy roads, won't get better until after 1 or 2:00 today. heavy rain moving in with possibility of flooding. stay away from fast moving water. winter storm warnings condition in the shenandoah valley and the blue ridge. look how much warmer it is around metro area, temperatures in the low 50s already, still in the 30s
valley. pockets of freezing rain coming in. it will be a big rapid meltdown today, then dry weather to finish the week into the weekend, aaron. >> chuck, thank you. we've team coverage of the conditions outside including news4's derrick ward. we'll begin, though, with molette green in greensburg. hey, molette. >> reporter: good morning. steady rain and lots of it. vdot has two reports of high water in a couple of areas where the drainage feeds into northern virginia, in the charlestown pike area. road crews are headed there right now to plug that. the trucks are still out all over, looking for icy spots. and they've been sanding in subdivisions throughout the night. we are here along east market where traffic is
and the icy spots are now turning to just slush here where there was snow and ice covering the snow. vdot telling me their crews, as the temperatures continue to rise, will start to decrease in numbers because things are improving. but they are watching for flooding possibilities out in this area in loudoun county. that's the latest. molette green. back to you. >> molette, thank you. ice covering the sidewalks and still some of those side streets throughout the county. new news4's derrick ward joins us live from chillum. derrick? >> reporter: the streets are pretty much clear, they're wet, so you have to take those usual precautions. you may run into some slushy spots and some place where the plow pushed some snow and the rain is beating it down. it may cause some issues with your traction. again, as we've been saying all
sidewalks are the issue. because now that ice that was there hasn't melted yet and it is indeed wet. that's what you've got to watch out for if you are venturing out now that the rain is falling. of course, it is warm, you might say almost balmy compared to how it's been the last couple of days. good to see something falling from the sky that isn't white and sticking and making things nasty. derrick ward, news4, back to you. >> couldn't agree more, derrick, thank you. we're tracking your commute. tom kierein and

so things are going to be quickly improving. then we'll be dealing with some flooding problems. watch out for high water in some low-lying areas, some creation and streams may
be coming out of their banks. that will be later this morning as we get the heavier rain moving on in. back to you. >> tom, thank you. we'll have another update in 20 minutes. for harlem. while former president bill clinton is in south carolina. sanders also campaigns in south carolina one day after he met

regularly taking the medications had a 44% increased chance of dementia. >> there are patients who are kept on this indefinitely. what we may see is a trend more for use in the short term when necessary and stopping afterwards. >> reporter: in a statement to nbc news, two of the drug makers stood behind their products. saying, patient safety is an important priority and we believe all of our medications are used effectively when taken as the label suggests. dr. azar is an nbc medical news contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is disturbing because a lot of people take the over the counter medicines. i don't get the link. why would heart burn medication potentially affect the mind and cause dementia? >> right. so this is all, at this point, hypothal
would call biological flauzabiliflau plausibility. how do you go from this medicine that affects your stomach to affecting your brain. theoretically, they could affect the brain chemistry. from animal models, we know they could affect the abnormal protein levels found in alzheimer's disease. the other thing i think is probably most important, in human data, we know that the medicines can cause b12 deficiency. b12 is definitely linked to dementia. >> to underscore, it's not necessarily causation. they saw a correlation between dementia and overusing these drugs, right? >> absolutely, absolutely. it's very important to reiterate that. this nearly was an association. certainly, does not prove causation. the study authors themselves would suggestt
methodology of the next study that would show something like this, to do something called a randomized trial, but this was a study that looked at linking diagnoses with use. >> it raises a good conversation, which is, you should ask yourself, do you need to be on these heart burn medications. >> right. i think one thing that we always like to reiterate, especially as physicians are taking care of patients, is when you're going through a medication list and keep on refilling medications automatically without really understanding, is there an indication for continuing this medication long term. for some people, it might actually be the case. are there alternative medicines? are there other things, such as lifestyle changes? i understand there are people with significant heart burn, where lifestyle changes don't make a difference. such as losing weight and not smoking and elevating the bed. it's something to keep in mind. >> dr. azar, thank you so much, as always. coming up, you've heard of the clapper. now, imagine the clapper for

i thought it was cleaned every time you run the dishwasher. >> anything that gets water running through it, you want to clean frequently. water is a bacteria dish. you're like, heat and water. just because you're washing the dishes doesn't mean your dishwasher is actually cleaning. what you want to do is you want to take white vinegar. it is like the wonder cleaner. i say it all the time on this show. put it in a cup, like a dishwasher safe cup. put it in the top, close it, run it through a full hot cycle. you're going to open it and take baking soda, spread it in the bottom. >> sprinkle it in the bottom? >> it'll deodorize it. run it through half a cycle. when it's dry, leave the door open and let it air dry. >> you use that much baking soda, or sprinkle a little bit. >> no, a little bit. similar tips for the coffeemaker. white vinegar, run it through. the calcium builds up. this cleans your machine. you can find all the tips
today.com. >> you'd put the vinegar in where you'd put the water. >> run it through a cycle. you want to run it two times after that, as well. >> lesson learned. let's hobble over here. how about the bathroom? >> number one thing you might be forgetting to clean is your toothbrush holder. clean it every single week. basically, you can take it out. i'll do it. you take it out, rinse it with water. also, change your toothbrushes. rinse it with hot water. then pour some -- well, it's easier to open. >> looks like mouthwash. >> pour that in and let it sit and rinse it out. that'll also deodorize and desanitize it. >> can i put that in the dishwasher? >> you can. if you're in your bathroom and want to do it, everything is there. >> the laundry room. >> now, your iron, you might notice, like i have a friend who said to me the other night, she turned it on and went to put the steam on and gross stuff came out.
>> this one is clean. the way to clean that, this is the thing you have to do when you need to do it. it's not a regular maintenance thing. take white vinegar and baking soda, again. you make a paste and rub it over the front of the machine. then you're going to wipe it clean with another cloth. then take cotton swabs with distilled water. you're going to clean all the vents. then you're going to take the distilled water, pour it into the thing, run it through a few times. >> squirt it out or whatever? >> do it for five minutes on the cloth. that'll clean it. >> as needed, you have to do that? >> as needed. you don't necessarily have to run out and buy a new one. you can clean the one you have. >> over here in the bedroom, you wash the sheets, due swhat are
forgetting? >> pillows. one thing you can get are pillow protecters. it's another layer. you should wash your pillows two to four times a year. this is not good for foam. you can't wash foam pillows but you can wash like a poly and a feather. if you grab the pillow, put them in the washing machine and wash them on the hottest cycle. use a liquid detergent -- >> i'm elegant walking over here. >> use liquid, not powder. powder leaves a residue. once washed in the hot cycle, put them in the dryer. >> okay. >> you put it into the dryer and throw in tennis balls. >> why? >> it'll aerate them. it bounces around and keeps the pillows fluffy. dry it about two hours. make sure they're really dry. take them out periodically, fluff them up and put them back in. you have fresh, clean
make sure the tennis balls are clean, right? >> yeah. >> we did a survey. how often do you wash your bed pillows? 60% said never. i feel better. >> now, i hope it's more. >> i hope so, too. i learned a lot in this. thank you very much. if you want the tips or more information, go to today.com/home. coming up next, we catch up with jason sudeikis. first, this is "today" on nbc.

but also as a man who didn't -- race didn't concern him. >> accidental non-racist. >> jesse referred to him in an autobiography as an accidental non-racist. color blind would be the common term for it now. back then, he was like, no, i don't care. i don't care. as long as you work hard and do what i ask, then i don't care what color you are, what race, doesn't matter. let's go. >> jesse needed that. >> you were playing a little basketball over the weekend in toronto. you played the celebrity tournament. >> we lost to canada. >> but you were great. 11 points at halftime. >> i did all right for an old man who doesn't play much anymore. >> you played ball. >> i did. the older i get, the better i was, is the statement. >> is it fun to be on the court though? >> it was fun. to have refs and mess around. kevin hart did a nice job for us as our coach. saturday was amazing. saturday was the best. the dunk contest, the
>> you got to see that? >> i had front row seats that the 14-year-old me would be going nuts over. >> those were great when we were growing up, dominique and jordan. then they were bad for a while. then you saw that the dunk contest is amazing again. >> it was up there with the '88. even the three-point contest. down between steph curry and klay thompson. the '88 in chicago was the all-time greatest. two nights ago was one for the books. >> have to ask, how is the little one? 22 months now, right? >> yeah. >> what's he doing? >> a lot of boom bops. loves the drums. he loves hoops. took him to a game, saw the clippers in l.a. recently. you know, and beyonce. it's like elmo, nemo and beyonce, his three favorite things. >> her fans start younger every year. >> they do. he may have come out of the womb that way. >> obviousl liobvisl
