7:02 am
this is the kind of morning you just wake up and want to stay under the covers with all the crummy weather. it is our top story this morning. snow and ice, bitter cold taking aim at the northeast after hammering the midwest over the weekend. we have it covered from the roads to the airports, and of course al's forecast. let's start with nbc's kristen dahlgren in burlington, vermont. >> reporter: good morning, matt. it is still coming down here. even in places like this where they are used to couldn't be worse. this storm has been an absolute travel nightmare. in the northeast, snow piling up overnight. coast to coast, snow and freezing rain impacting millions. in at least six midwest states, more than a foot of snow. in minnesota, icy roads resulted in hundreds of crashes and dozens of injuries. some truck drivers in oregon stuck in place for three days. their big rig surrounded by ice.
7:03 am
and this is one of the worst ice storms i've seen coming down the gorge. >> reporter: this tree in portland tumbling down leaving an entire neighborhood without power. in detroit's metro airport, a scary moment for passengers. >> delta 724, we just went into the grass. >> reporter: a plane evacuated after a plane skid off the runway. bad weather also forcing cancellations of thousands of flights sunday. a headache for travelers and likely only the temperatures expected to drop. some areas getting crushed with snow. some folks are taking it in stride. >> if i didn't like snow, i wouldn't live in cleveland. >> reporter: outside cleveland, nearly 33 inches recorded. >> normally we're teased by mother nature a little bit, few inches here and there. but 30-plus inches, i had to see it for myself. >> reporter: for anyone who is complaining this morning, just wait. we are talking about those temperatures plunging. we are talking about between 15
7:04 am
many places, guys. >> thank you very much. as we said, the snow and ice are causing big problems for travelers. thousands of flights canceled across the midwest. nbc's morgan radford is at chicago's o'hare airport. morgan, good morning. >> reporter: hoda, good morning. a messy monday morning for a lot of travelers. just shy of 200 flights all across the country canceled this morning. nearly half of them right here in chicago. but the reality is those numbers are relief for a lot of those than 2,000 flights canceled across the country because of that winter weather. the majority of those cancellations were here in the midwest. we saw them in chicago's midway airport, at o'hare and in detroit. a lot of those passengers this morning scrambling to get on new flights and telling me that process isn't easy and it isn't cheap. >> supposed to be here this morning at 6:00 and supposed to leave at 10:00. now i'm on a 2:55. both flights got canceled today. >> the airline i was originally
7:05 am
working to allow me to rebook and i couldn't sit on the phone any longer on hold waiting to do it. i just went to a different booked through them. >> reporter: how has this entire experience been? >> expensive. >> reporter: united airlines has agreed to waive any rebooking fees. american and delta have agreed for full refunds. that's for any significant delays above 60 or 90 minutes. but the reality is given that temperatures are expected to drop below zero in some parts of the current, we these winter delays to go anywhere any time soon. >> morgan, thank you so much. uh-oh. >> seems like we switched over. it was snowing here for a while. >> now we've got rain but a fair amount of our northeastern viewers are going to be looking at snow. you can see right now, upstate new york, on into new england, heavier showers and thunderstorms from washington, d.c. all the way back in to tennessee. but the snowfall depending on where the temperature is -- boston, you are right on the
7:06 am
degrees. 21 bangor. also burlington. albany, 32. over the rest of the day we'll probably see heaviest amounts in northern new england. now, the cold air. polar vortex. it is always up there, right? the word's coming back because it started to weaken. now it is sending cold air into first siberia, then down on into canada. north america, as well. now it is going to stay in the northern tier of states but look at these temperatures over the next several days. fargo. the morning low. 14 below on chicago, wednesday, thursday, friday -- well below zero. nashville iday, you're 33. new york city by friday, the coldestir gets here at 11 degrees. and -- there is another storm stem -- >> a very pregnant "and." >> i wanted to keep in touch with savannah. and with that -- there is a storm system that's going to cause some major misery possibly for the northern tier states into the northeast by next weekend. we could be looking at another big airport problem and road
7:07 am
could be looking at a white christmas. >> exactly! >> thank you, al. let us turn now to politics and some new controversies for president-elect trump as he fills out his cabinet. this as he also opens up a new rift with the cia over a course that russia tried to interfere with the election. kristen welker, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. president-elect trump will meet with two contenders for energy secretary at trump tower today. former texaser and conservative west virginia democrat senator joe manchin. meanwhile, his likely pick for secretary of state,tillson . this morning, president-elect donald trump poised for more cabinet related meetings at trump tower as he digs in blasting the u.s. intelligence community after "the washington post" reported the cia thinks
7:08 am
>> i think it is ridiculous. i think it is just another excuse. i don't believe it. >> reporter: mr. trump refusing to believe multiple agencies who have for months pointed the finger at russia for helping to hack top democrats during the 2016 race. >> they have no idea if it is russia or china or some body. it could be somebody sitting in a bed someplace. >> reporter: this echoed by his incoming chief of staff during a fiery exchange on "meet the press." >> does the president-elect believe that russia was the election in 2016? >> number one, you don't know it. i don't know it. and there's been no conclusive or specific report to say otherwise. >> reporter: but not all republicans are lining up. four top senators, including republicans john mccain and lindsey graham, calling for an investigation into the potential russian hacks. all of that highlighting an unprecedented rift between an incoming commander in chief and the intelligence agencies he's about to work with.
7:09 am
presidents receive. he's only had a handful. >> i don't have to be told -- you know be with i'm, like, a smart person. i don't have to be told the same words and same thing every single day for the next eight years. >> reporter: this all comes as mr. trump is on defense over his likely pick of secretary of state, rex tillerson, the ceo of exxon-mobil. tillerson has no diplomatic experience but has executed business deals around the world and has extensive ties to russia. >> he's much more than a business ut player. >> reporter: but tillerson could face a tough confirmation fight. republican senator marco rubio tweeting, being a friend of vladimir is not an attribute i am hoping for from a secretary of state. senator john mccain also weighing in on tillerson's ties to russia. >> is it a matter of concern? certainly it should be a matter of concern. >> reporter: also looming large, questions about how mr. trump will manage his vast business empire once in office. >> i'm going to have nothing to do with it.
7:10 am
care about it anymore. >> reporter: this week, mr. trump will hold his first press conference since becoming president-elect and will detail exactly how he plans to disentangle himself from his business dealings. he has indicated his adult children will maintain some control. just moments ago, president-elect trump officially announced he's nominating general john kelly as secretary of homeland security. matt? >> kristen, thanks very much. kellyanne conway served as mr. trump's campaign manager. is now a senior advisor for the transition. kellyanne, good to see you. does mr. trump think the intelligence community and cia in particular is lying about the russians' impact on the election? >> he's not said that. in fact, mr. trump has said that he respects the intelligence community. in the specific case that's being discussed recently though, we don't have credible and complete evidence that there is a direct nexus between anything that russia did and hillary clinton's loss in the election. that's what's "fuzzy" and -- >> isn't it enough to know that
7:11 am
reports -- and the intelligence agencies agree -- that the russians deployed hackers to have some involvement, some impact on the election, whether it resulted in a victory or loss for hillary clinton. >> first of all, we don't believe -- we don't want intelligence interfering in our politics. but we also don't want politics interfering with our intelligence. that's what's happening here. if you look at some of these articles that are being written, they want the reader db they want the viewer in fact, matt, to make that direct connection between interference and the of course, these are leaked, unsourced, non-sources, if you will. that's what hearings are for and that's what investigations are for. >> when you talked about leaked and unsourced, mr. trump had no problem during the campaign using that same leaked, unsourced information, negative information about the clinton campaign, against hillary clinton. now he doesn't even seem to care where its a he coming from. >> he cares very much about our intelligence community and any information that they may
7:12 am
fbi and cia don't even agree on what the conclusion is here. that's very clear in the "washington post" article, very clear in the "newsek" article from last night. in the case of thoseils, we saw right in front of us what they said. but -- look. i do think theres somhing going on he where,er it's the recount, it's jim comey's fault, it is russian interference, it is a group of people we've never met. >> and the two things may be mutually exclusive. bof cares very deeply about this intelligence. he said it could be russia, it could be china, it could be some guy in new jersey. that doesn't seem to give me the sense he has the gravity. >> indeed he does. he also understands the gravity and consequences of not having a greet relationship with russia now. we just simply don't. that's why some of his secretary of state picks are people who are already involved in russia. the ultimate decision rests with
7:13 am
will make that announcement perhaps this week. rex tillerson as head of exxon has dealt with russia over a number of years. i think oversees 70,000 employees, $300 billion. that's important because we just can't have somebody go in there with no relation -- >> it adds to the perspective. i'm glad you bring mr. tillerson up. on top of these questions about the russians' impact on the election and mr. trump's own words in the past about vladimir putin and thinking he is a strong leader and liking his praise and now we have rex tillerson who h moscow, been honored by them, was against sanctions against russia. is he perhaps the right guy but at the wrong time, kellyanne? >> it's the right job description. we want somebody who is already accustomed to negotiating. because he is an oil man he's been in yemen, china and in russia and in the developing world and the middle east, certainly, matt. it is not like vladimir putin and rex tillerson are pounding
7:14 am
through business interests. most importantly, anybody in president trump's cabinet, particularly the secretary of state, that person will advance the interests of the u.s. everywhere and that person will advance the agenda of mr. trump. >> when will we know? >> perhaps this week. i think everybody should appreciate how much time and deliberation and reflection that he has spent on this very important pick, who secretary of state. the world is a dangerous place. we don't have great relationship everywhere. picking someone who will advance u.s. interests and the trump doctrine, incredibly important. not to be rushed. >> thanks, kellyanne. the man who fatally shot former saints player william smith has been convicted of manslaughter. he was found guilty in the april 9th shooting that killed will smith and wounded the player's
7:15 am
mcallister, says he knows there are still hard times ahead for smith's family. >> just because there was a guilty and not guilty verdict doesn't mean that everything starts over know. she'll get up in the morning and her husband is not there. kids will get up in the morning and their father is not there. >> hayes could face up to 40 years in prison. his sentencing is scheduled for february 17th. private vigil was held overnight at the pulse nightclub in orlando to mark six months since the deadliest mass shooting in u.s. histor at 2:02 a.m., the exact time that omar mateen started shooting. meantime, new surveillance video shows the horror before, during and after the rampage. camera shows mateen parking his car under a canopy shortly before 2:00 a.m. police arrived minutes later after first reports of shots. patrons run for their lives. the standoff lasted three hours before mateen was finally killed by police.

buying them from someone who is selling them for almost three times what they're worth. remember tickle me elmo? or the furby craze? remember all these beanie baseballs? that's nothing compared to this year's hatchimals which is a souped-up version of all those toys with an egg that hatches. most retail stores sell them for about have been predicting a low supply will lead to a huge shortage. a la arnold schwarzenegger's search in "jingle all the way." some might see it as an opportunity to cash in. some people online thought author sara gruen was doing a few weeks ago. >> i had absolutely no idea that emotions would run so high. i had no idea how desperate people were to get these for

8:18 am
>> that's your latest weather. now to something new we are calling "joy to the world." this week, "today" nutritionist joy bauer is helping you navigate all those holiday treats that can go waistline. up first, a healthier spin on a classic that feeds a crowd. >> i'm lightening up a holiday family favorite -- cheesy delicious lasagna. and there's no noodle boiling needed, thanks to a trick i learned from my mom. christmas lasagna. brown turkey and marinara sauce in water. mix ricotta cheese. add egg white, garlic powder, pepper, basil and oregano.
8:19 am
cover bottom of the pan with meat sauce, half spinach mixture, more noodles. layer again. to cook noodles, pour water around the edges. tip -- spray the foil and the cheese won't stick. bake covered. bake uncovered. decorate and serve. typical lasagna is about 960 calories per serving. mine -- just 260. that's a savings of calories. happy holidays! mwua! >> by the way, that's crazy how many calories you've cut. >> it is delicious! we're going to feast on it right afterwards. i also want to mention that as easy as it is to make the tree, if you from init horizontally you can make the hanukah menorah as well. >> look at you always thinking! going to holiday parties. three things we should do. >> first thing, follow the rule of one. what that means is when you get
8:20 am
delicious looking hors d'oeuvre, fill one plate of food with whatever you want and one alcoholic beverage and one dessert or a sliver of two. >> you blacked out when you said one. >> everything's negotiable. you also want to focus on the people. catch up with friends and family, versus focusing on food and pigging out. lastly, sneak in extra exercise because the more you burn the more wiggle room you have for all the holiday stuff. >> the three don'ts. >> first up those seasonable cocktails because they are calorie bombs. count them as dessert. >> eggnog is one of those. >> we'll talk about eggnog in a minute. you also don't want to waste your calories on the year-round regular stuff like chocolate chip cookies and chips. instead, save is for things like aunt grace's killer fudge. those things are worth it. the last is you don't want to eat your way through the month. we have to keep reminding ourselves it is called a
8:21 am
>> look at appetizers now. this is bruschetta. three pieces versus three mini quiches. what are you going to pick? >> i would pick the bruschetta because it doesn't have all the crust and stuff. >> you are exactly right. bruschetta wins. this is the lighter choice. it is only 20alories a piece. 60 calories for all three. and, plus you get the vitamin c packed tomatoes. they a helps reduce the risk of certain cancers. the quiche, 1 00 calories each. a little more, actually. 310 for three. >> sometimes when you stroll around a party, you take one off a place, you're not thinking. be conscience of it. >> if you're faced with holiday rum punch, eggnog or a gingerbread martini, which do
8:22 am
>> i would pick the gingerbread? >> the holiday punch is the lightest at 240 calories. next in line is the eggnog for 350. the gingerbread martini is like a milkshake. it's 500 calories. >> that's horrifying. >> 500. here's a great trick for people that love eggnog. if you fill it up half-way, then you top it off with any kind of milk, ideally skim milk or maybe like an unsweetened almond you dilute is a little bit -- >> that's not really eggnog. >> main courses. >> are you going to pick the glazed baked ham or are you going to pick the prime rib? >> i'd do the ham. it looks thinner. >> you are exactly right. ham is actually pretty darn lean. five ounces is 240 calories. prime rib is the most marbled, fattiest meat. this is over 600 calories.
8:23 am
creamed spinach or mashed potatoes and gravy? >> i would just pick the mashed potatoes for many reasons. >> although they both have a lot of fatty mix-ins, mashed potatoes, that's made with whole milk and butter and of course cream in the cream spinach. spinach is always going to prevail because it is a superstar vegetable and it is also so much lighter compared to spuds. 250 for this one, 350 for tha one. all right. >> the last. sweet treats. >> two holiday cookies versus two pieces of peppermint bark. >> i love peppermint bark. i'm going with this one. >> you would be right. each cookie is about 100 calories. two for 200 is a pretty good bargain. peppermint bark is loaded. >> don't tell me!
8:24 am
then you tel me. >> 4 run calories for the two pieces. can you imagine? one piece is double what one cookie is. sometimes it is worth it. i get it. >> all right. joy, all great. all great tips. you can get joy's lasagna recipe at 2 datcome. tomorrow joy is going to show you how to undo the damage if you do overdo it. >> i got jim buffett and the guys getting us in the holiday spirit. take it away, guys. ??
