>> $1.5 bilion. good morning. breaking news. those ten navy sailors detained by iran released this morning. the navy now investigating how their patrol boats drifted into iranian waters. we're live at the pentagon. return to hope and change. >> that's why i stand heree as confident as i have ever been that the state of our union is strong. >> president obama uses his last state of the union address to tout his accomplishments, set some lofty goals and take a veiled shot at donald trump. >> we need to reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion. >> that sentiment echoed in a surprising republican response nikki healy. >> during anxious times it can
7:01 am
call of the angriest voices. we must resist that temptation. >> this morning show's with us live, and democratic front-runner hillary clinton joins us as well. best seat in the house. new speaker paul ryan talks about the job he took reluctantly. you've been in the job a little more than two months now. what's surprised you the most? >> that i like it. >> and how he has to practice his poker face for last night's state of the union, and tonight's the night the powerball jackpot at an unthinkakae sum of $1.5 billion, the largest ever. are you in it to win it? make sure you check the numbers right. >> 63, yes! >> one mistake that had this group of co-workers thinking they had won big today, wednesday, january 13th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer
7:02 am
studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. our dreams of staying and living at the white house squashed. we're back in new york. >> not that i don't like this desk, but can we agree the white house balcony was a little bit better than the spot we are this morning. of course, the state of the union was last night. we'll have all the latest on that and the republican response as well. >> let us start with our top story, iran's release of that group of u.s. navy sailors after holding them overnight. the incident adding a new layer of tension in the relationship between our two countries. nbc's jim miklaszewski at the pentagon. what can you tell us. >> reporter: good morning. the navy sailors are back at their base in bahrain this morning in good condition. u.s. military officials say there's no evidence they were harmed during their captivity. now, photographs released by iran show the ten sailors, the nine men and one woman, in fairly stark conditions, but in
7:03 am
now, the ten sailors were in two riverine boats headed to bahrain yesterday when the boats apparently experienced some kind of navigational problems, drifted into territorial warts of a farsi island, were quickly captured by the iranian coast guard and taken ashore and handed over to the revolutionary guard. now the rev guard initially accused the americans of snooping, but today said their investigation found no evidence of espionage. what's more likely to have happened here, matt, is that iranian leadership in tehran ordered the rev guard to release the americans. secretary of state john kerry was on the phone with tehran yesterday and no doubt told them that if those americans were not released iran stood to lose billions of dollars in that nuclear deal with the u.s. which is set to be implemented by the end of this week. a satisfied -- a satisfying ending to this but a reminder to
7:04 am
least, that the iranians still cannot be trusted. matt? >> jim miklaszewski at the pentagon, thanks very much. president obama did not mention that incident with iran during his final state of the union address. it was a speech that was, as promised, big on his visions of the future of ameriri with a lot of focus on the race to succeed him at white house. we'll talk about all of it with south carolina govovnor nikki haley who delivered the republican response and democratic presidential hopeful hillary clinton in just a moment, but first to nbc national correspondent peter alexander at white house with the latest on the speech. peter, good morning. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. i stuck around when you guys left. this was the first of many lasts for president obama, and he really sounded liberated last night. for months more than 20 presidential candidates have framed his time in office. last night it was the esident's turn. it sounded a lot like a campaign speech, attacking the politics of pessimism and carving out what he views as the path forward for democrats. leading off his last state of the union a presidential pledge
7:05 am
>> i'm going to try to make it a little shorter. i know some of you are antsy to >> reporter: less than three weeks before the first contest to pick his replacement to without naming names president obama repetedly rejected the republican campaign rhetoric. >> when politicians insult muslims, whether abroad or our fellow citizens, that doesn't make us safer. that's not telling -- telling it like it is. it's just wrong. all the talk of america's economic decline is political hot air, and our answer needs to be more than tough talk or calls to carpet bomb civilians. >> reporter: seven years andnd plenty of gray hair removed for his calls for hope and change, the president highlight the his greatest hits and offered optimistic goals, included putting joe biden in cool of cure cancer. >> i'm putting joe in charge of mission control.
7:06 am
topic of gun violence at home, the president also forcefully rebutted criticisms that he's been weak abroad. >> in you doubt america's commitment or mine to see that justice is done, just ask osama bin laden. >> reporter: and, again, defended his strategy against isis. >> over the top claims that this is world war iii just play into their hands. >> reporter: punctuating his speech, a call to fix our politics and a concession. >> it's one of the few regrets of my presidency, that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better. >> reporter: in his final address a soaring conclusion. i believe in change because i believe in you. the american people, and that's why i stand here as confident as i have ever been that the state of our union is strong. >> still, the republicans were unimpressed. ted cruz. >> sadly i think it was less a state of the union than it was a
7:07 am
>> reporter: and donald trump, this time blasting the president as low energy dismissing the speech as boring, slow hand lethargic. uth carolina repeplican governor nikki haley tasked with responding to the president made news for also taking aim at her party's front-runner. >> during anxious times it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angryiest vovoes. we must resist that temptation. >> reporter: republican party right now trying to re-brand itself as new, young and diverse and what was really striking is that contrast on display bween the party of nikki haley and paul ryan and the party of donald trump, already haley though is getting significant backsh from some conservative members within her own partz. matt? >> peter alexander, thanks very much. we are joined now by south carolina governor nikki haley. governor, good morning. >> good morning, matt. let talk about the reviews. they are@in. prominent democrat david axelrod tweeted, really effective speech by nikki haley, avoided the
7:08 am
paul ryan, jeb bush, both said you hit it out of the park, but as peter just mentioned some very conservative voices in your party were not so happy. anne coulter tweeted donald trump should deport you, laura ingraham said the country is lit up with a populist fever and the gop responds by digging in on the candidates dominating the polls. >> look, i respect all of those people and understand their opinion but, you know, i disagree. i think a lot of what we're trying to do is saying the angriest voices are not helpful. if we have citizens who are law-abiding, who love our traditions and do everything to be productive citizens in america, they should feel welcome in this country. i am not saying that i believe in illegal immigration. i dodot. i've always sailed that, but i do want us to be more inclusive and understand the reason that this country is so great is because of the fabric of america is made by immigrants.
7:09 am
the loudest ices, those angriest voices, in that context,ere you referring to donald trump, correct? >> he was one of them, yes. he was one. there's other people in the media. there's people in my state. i think we're seeing it across the country, but, yes, mr. trump has definitely contributed to what i think is just irresponsible talk. >> some people on the far right of your party wanted you to deliver a full-scale partisan political atta. you didn't see that as your mission, did you? >> that wasn't me. that's not me. i think that it's important for us tc look in the mirror. i think republicans need to understand that they, tow, are responsible for the status of where we are in the country. look, president obama has divided our country in ways we've never seen before. we're seeing disastrous things with health care, education, the economy, the national security. >> right. >> but republicans need to understand that there are things that we could do bet their would help strength err own country, and i think it's important that republicans look in the mirror and realize we're also to blame.
7:10 am
in the wake of this speech is making you or cementing your place as a leading candidate for vice president in your party. on a scale of 1 do 10, governor, how interested are you? 10 being the most? >> i really haven't thought about it, and i know that people in the media don't believe that, but i was given an opportunity to say what i think and i appreciate that from speaker ryan and senator mcconnell. >> you mention speaker ryan. speaker ryan didn't really want the job as speaker, but for the good offis party he took it. you're saying you really haven't thought about the position of vice president. for the good of your party would u accept it? >> if a candidate wanted to sit down and talk, i w wld sit down and talk. i think that that's a big decision. it's a family decision. it's a state decision. it's something i'd have to think about, but i absolutely would sit down and talk with anyone. >> when will you endorse a candidate in the race? >> i don't know. you know, right now'm trying to roll out my budget for friday. i've got my state of the state address nexttweek. we're dealing with the debate.
7:11 am
of timeline yet, but we'll see. >> south carolina governor nikki haley. governor, thanks for spending time wh us this morning. >> thanks so much, matt. >> okay. savannah. >> with the iowa calkuses fast approaching what we heard last night is sure to take center stage in the presidential election and things are getting interesting in the 2ke789ic side of the race. according to a new national poll just out this morning hillary clinton's lead is now just seven points over bernie sanders. it was 20 points just one month @ ago, and sanders actually leads clinton in two key battleground states, according to some polls. 49% to 44% in iowa and 53% to 39% in new hampshire, results that have the vermont senator sanders feeling confident. >> as we have gained momentum, i think it's fair to say that the clinton campaign has become very nervous. >> and secretary hillary clinton joins us now. secretary, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. >> are you nervous?
7:12 am
i'm working hard, and i intend to keep working as hard as i can until the last vote or caucus goer expresses an opinion. i'm excited about where we are. >> you've called this as recently as yesterday the get real season in politics, and i wonder there's a lot of passion on the democratic side for bernie sanders. are you telling those voters to get real, he can't be elected or to get real, he can't do the things he sayay he canan do. what does get real mean to you? >> well, i think we're in that stage of a campaign where we've each been introducing ourselves. we've been talking about our particular views on issues, and now it's time to draw some contrasts. now, lookok the contrasts on substantive issues between m hand senator senators pale in comparison to, you know, between us andhe republicans, but there are substantive differences, and i think it's only fair that voters know what those differences are. one of the big ones, as you're aware, is on gun safety where senator senators has been a
7:13 am
lobby, and i have been standing against them for a long time, voted against them when i was a senator, so these are the kinds of differences that people deserve to know about as they make up their minds. >> you've gotten pretty tough on sanders, as you said, in the recent days. bringing up contrasts, as you put it, on a variety of issues. did you underestimate him? why are you only going on the attack now? >> no, not at all. i had a very different sense of the rhythm of this campaign. there was a lot for me to do to go around and meet with people, listen to them, put out my ideas. i've been laying out, you know, very specific policies for months now and telling people how i would pay for them. i'm asking that senator sanders does the same thing. we need to move now from generalization to specifics so people can see what the differences are. that's what i always planned to do and that is what i'm doing. >> you said recently that you -- you wish we could elect a democratic president who could wave a magic wand and say we
7:14 am
that. that ain't the real world we're living in, and there it is again, that word real. are you suggesting that bernie sanders is out there promoting a fantasy that can't come true? >> no. i'm goingo let him speak for himself, but, for example, we have a difference on health care. i want to build on the affordable care act. we've got to make some changes because we have to improve it. he's been talking very generally about a single-payer system. he's introduced legislation nine times that have laid out a very specific plan to take everybody's health care and roll it will into great big bundle and hand it to the states, but my view is we shouldn't be ripping up obamacare and starting over. we should be building on it. >> you called bill clinton your not so secret weapon, but donald trump recently went on the attack saying because you accused him of sexism you opened e door to allegations about president clinton's past misbehavior. was that a tactical mistake on your end? did you open the door to those attacks?
7:15 am
run his campaign any way he wants. what i've been pointing out is that a lot of the policies he's proposing would hurt working americans, and he doesn't seem to believe that americans need a raise. that's at the centerpiece of my campaign. >> but he's saying that you played the so-called woman card and that you called him essentially sexist and when you did that you opened the door to these attacks about bill clinton's past misconduct. >> oh, you know, i'm -- i'm not going to engage with him on these matters. the voters can make up their minds. i am going to continue to point out what his proposed policies would mean to our country and to hard working middle class families across our country and he has been very dismissive about equal pay for equal work, about raising the minimum wage which has two-thirds of minimum wage workers being women and some of the other, you know, changes and kinds of policies
7:16 am
to let him answer for himself. i'm not going to respond to his personal attacks. if that's what he wants to engage in, that's what he can spend his time doing. >> in a word does he dercut the effectiveness of bill clinton as a surrogate for you? >> oh, i am so proud my husband is out on the campan trail. in fact, in new hampshire and iowa in the last week where he has now been to both states, people are asking me when was he coming back, when could they see more of him, so he carries a message of peace and prosperity under his presidency, and i think a lot of americans would like to get back to those days. >> hillary clinton,hank you for your time this morning. we really appreciate it. >> thanks hey lot, savannah. >> polls are tightening and getting to be a very interesting race on both sides. >> no question about it. looking back at the state of the union for a second, the man sitting behind the president last night, not vice president joe biden but next to him, the new speaker of the house paul ryan, and we're going to sit down and talk to paul ryan, speaker of the house, coming up in our next half hour.
7:17 am

7:19 am
most of our ride -- you get stuck in the lake-effect snow bands and you're in near whiteout conditions and the roads become snow-covered, visibility ver poor and this is the type of situation we'll see today. what indiana saw yesterday. they had several multi-car pileups involving several tractor trailers in south central indiana yesterday. it closed a three-mile stretch oj the road. just to the north of that on i-70 there were nine tractor trailers involved in an accident along with four cars. there were no life-threatening injuries, but you do run into very -- this will continue in western new york today and tomorrow. >> we've had a little bit of problems there. you can literally have what we call snow fades when it's snowing so hard you can't get that signal through, but dylan, as you can see, driving through a lot of that activity.

7:37 am
of opioid withdrawal. common side effects include stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, gas, vomiting, and headache. tell your doctor about any side effects and about medicines you take as movantik may interact with them causing side effects. so, go on, talk to your doctor about opioid-induced constipation. and ask if once-daily movantik is right for you. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. erin: dear freshpet, when i first got max, my main goal was to feed him a quality diet. i dededed to give freshpet a try. dexter: there's real chunks of vegetables and chicken in it. raul: and, if the food is in the fridge, you know it has to be fresh. patrick: he's a happy guy when he has his freshpet. welcome aboard my starship. ahoy, mateys! it's full of things i love... and free of things i don't. just like chex cereal. it's full of stuff we pirates need. no artificial flavors, and it's gluten-free. eat up, me hearties! keep it down!

>> last week we had chloe cleanse. this week we have get fit frank. >> there's frank. >> so he got a little bit of a late start, wasn't really ready to dive in january 1st but he is ready now, and i'm going to take him through a transformation with my three tips and you're going to be amazed at how he totally transforms inside and out, so the first thing i'm starting with is a household staple, white rice. when it comes to while rice, if you eat one cup cooked, that's about 220 calories. now, of course, you want to go for the whole grain varieties like brown rice and wild rice, so much better for you, but they also will cost you about 220 calories, so i have a really clever trick for people at home. you can make cauliflower rice for just 35 calories. >> you just great it. >> break it into florets and on the largest hole grate or pop in the food processor gently pulse
8:18 am
the in a skillet and add whatever seasonings you want, have unbelievable starchy feeling rice. if you do that this week at the end of the year you'll save more than 29,000 callries. this is the calorie equivalent of 20 loaves o bread. >> is that bread or bricks. >> it's bread. >> actually not sliced, but it would be 440 polices, and our get fet frank has done this and he's lost eight pounds so with a subtle change, he mobilized belly face, no more acid reflux and no more sleep apnea. well worth it. >> what's the next idea. >> now we're going to tackle a breakfast favorite, careeria. people are notorious, myself included, when you pour frorothe box you wind up with two to three times the serving size within your both. the easiest trick is to stash a one-cup measuring scooper right in the box for dry cereal and
8:19 am
because when you open it up you will be reminded that this is the amount that you pour in. also, you can take a sharpie you want, inexpensive bowl a make a line in your morning breakfa cereal bowl. if you do this most morning during the week you'll save 52,000 calories at the end of the year. >> wow. >> wits equivalent of literally a bathtub filled with cereal! >> wow. >> this is 390 cups. i'm going to puthe scooper in here just in case. >> just so we can see. >> can we get some milk, please. that's amazing. what happed to frank then? >> frank now has lost an additional 15 pounds hand now down a total of 23. his cholesterol is going down, his blood pressure is going down. he feels and looks amazing. >> i can't get over the bathtub with rasin bran, amazing. what's our final tip. so finally when it comes to mexican food, swap out your burrito@for a bowl because when you do this, you'll
8:20 am
calories from the oversized tortilla wrap and ask them fill it with all of your favorite goodies, the beans, the cheese, the salsa, the gawk, and go easy on rice so you're minimizing the rice and also losing the tortilla tortilla. >> did you put any dressing on that salad. >> there's salsa and gawk. >> whatever you put inside. >> i don't think you're going to find cauliflower rice on the menu. >> fair enough. >> but if you did this a few times each week with l lch or dinner when you order a burrito, go bowling, you'll save yourself at the end of the year 72,000 calories which is saving yourself the equivalent of, are you red for this, 440 standard tacos. >> wow. >> just from this one simple swap. >> i can't stop looking hat those tacos, that's amazing. >> and how does it work with frank? >> he's now lost a total of 43
8:21 am
