security analyst who served at the defense department and political analyst was the communications director for the national security council. good morning to both of you. that answer from stephen miller to chuck on the confidence in michael flynn, did it sound like a straight arm to you? >> that was not a robust defense. if i were mike fire linelynn i worried about my standing at the white house. >> if he had this conversation with the russian ambassador prior to the inauguration and if they spoke about those sanctions from the obama administration, how serious a mistake was that? >> talking to the russian ambassador may not be that serious. the question is why did they try to conceal it and perhaps the answer is the conversation happened on december 29th, the day the sanctions were imposed. he was signaling when we come into office we'll do things

stake out a line in the sand again. with that said i think that was the smart approach actually because this is a provocation by the north koreans. the new administration has to get their hands around the challenge. i don't think that a hasty response is necessary. >> the white house created a statement for the president, but he didn't deliver it. he said i'm standing by japan. i think he should have gone further. >> thank you both very much. let's talk about last night's grammy awards. the biggest names were out in force, but one star sold the show, adele. natalie is in los angeles. good morning. >> reporter: we're talking about the performance. in a year where award shows are doubling as a platform for politics, the grammys was no exception. the result was one entertaining and unpredictable night. opening the showi
