7:04 am
of those numbers. savannah and matt, many of the suspicions will aarise, if co-workers call in sick. >> if youet calls from your third cousins, you might be a winner. the republican candidates will square off in their first debate of 2016 tonight, and the stakes are high, with the iowa caucuses 18 days away. nbc national correspondent peter alexander is in north charleston, south carolina. good morning to you. >> matt, good morning to you. this is the sixth republican debate and perhaps, more importantly, the second to last before the first nominating contest in iowa february 1st. we've seen donald trump and ted cruz engage with increasingly fighting attacks on the campaign trail. will they shy away from that tonight, or will t ty keep it up? ted cruz faces new questions this morning about his finances. >> he's been really, really nice, other than the last couple of days, getting a little testy. >> reporter: donald trump still

7:06 am
with trump responding to the republican response to president obama. >> it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. >> repter: south carolina governor nikki haley calling out trump as angry. >> i iam. i'm angry. i hate what's happening to our country. i am angry. >> reporter: jeb bush admits he misjudged the intensity of anger among republicans, calling it dramatically different than in past elections. the debate stage shrmnk to seven. carly fiorina and rand paul cast out. hillary clinton's husband, talking about what it takes to be president, accidentally put his wife in the oval office. >> one of the things i'm proud of, when hillary was president, she did all that. >> of course, donald trump has been channelling voters'age ageeninger anger throughout the campaign.
7:07 am
he wouldn't want to be on the other side of that. >> i don't like this mic. whoever bought this mic system, [ bleep ] to put it in, i'll tell you. seriously. this mic is terrible. stupid mic keeping popping. hear that, george? don't pay them. >> there's your republican front runner heading into tonight's debate. >> peter alexander, thank you very much. mark is managing editor of bloom bloomburg politics. he interviewed trump last night. >> good morning. >> people are wondering whether the ted cruz story is a big deal or not. i'll ask about that in a second. first, let's play a little bit of your conversation with donald trump. >> well, i heard it's a big thing. i know nothing about it. i hope he solves it. i thihi he's a nice guy and hope he gets it solved. the reason is, i'm doing very well, and i can understand it.
7:08 am
respectful of my ideas, my whole being. he's been terrific. i just hope it's not a big problem for him. >> mark, ted cruz has already admitted he didn't properly file paperwork with the federal election commission. that is one issue. isn't the bigger issue though a bit of hypocrisy? a guy running as a darling of the tea party, railing against wall street and the big banks and, yet, what people didn't know was that he'd gone to one of the big banks, goldman sachs, where his wife worked, to get a personal loan? >> nothing matters more in presidential politics than defining yourself for the voters. ted cruz is being introduced to the public. donald trump has been in the public for decas. a lot of voters just tuning into the race, one of the first things they learn about ted cruz is he has a fincial relationship with goldman sachs, there's nothing worse for the populous.
7:09 am
tonight at the debate. >> we know cruz has somewhat drafted behind trump for mos of the campaign. we have seen a little bit of recently. do you think the debate is going to come to a head, the gloves are off, or will they play mr. nice guy? >> it's interestingng last night, donald trump, you saw in the clip there, was pretty restrained in this story. i don't think it rules out he'll be amped up more tonight. but he was restrained when we asked other aspects of cruz. i think donald trump is holding back, and i think he will wait to see tonight what ted cruz's posture is. there's no doubt, those two guys, first and second in iowa, first and second in most national polls, those who guys are going to be at the heart of the debate thisevening. while people like jeb bush, chris christie, marco rubio, john kasich, try to insert themselves into the story line to make it a three person race. now, it's a two person race.
7:10 am
trump, ted cruz is using what sounds like a funny line, a punch line, but it's not meant to be one. he's calling donald trump a new yorker. he doesn't mean it in a good way. because he's playing to an audience in a certain region of the country, right? >> that's right. look, donald trump last night, the one thing he was defiant on, is this notion of new york values being a negative thing. donald trump invoked 9/11 and said, ted cruz f you want to criticize new york, come through me. the discussion about who is more elite, who is more new york, that could be a real fight. ted cruz went to princeton and harvard. he's got some northeastern ties, as well. that fight, defining the other guy, particularly defining cruz who remains undefined for some voters, that's at the heart of the republican nomination. fight? we'll see it in the debate tonight, for sure. >> let's talk about the democrats. we have a real race going on between sanders and clinton. do you think it's possible that she loses the first two states
7:11 am
and then goes on to the nomination, or would that be a crushing blow? >> she could still be the nominee if she loses iowa and new hampshire. the world will be a different place. bernie sanders, neck and neck in iowa, according to our iowa poll. sanders has the lead in new hampshire. you have to say right now, he has the momentum. she'll have to fight her way back. she's doing a lot of television interviews. sanders is showing a sure footing in this as a candidate than he has since the race began. this contest on the democratic side, which has been overshadowed by donald trump and the attention he gets, will be front and center. 18 days or so of extraordinary political drama for the republicans and the democrats. >> thanks very much. we have breaking news in indonesia. happened overnight, terrorists laying siege to the heart of jakarta, carrying out several attacks, including one at a starbucks. isis reportedly claiming
7:12 am
responsibility this morning. let's go to kelly cobiella. what are you hearing? >> good morning. a news agency linked to isis is claiming the terror group was behind this. according to jakarta's police chief, an indonesian isis fighter in syria had been planning it for a while, he says. a paris-style attack in the heart of the capital with guns and explosives. >> reporter: for hours this morning, downtown jakarta's shopping district was a battlefield, with at least two explosions. this one outside the starbucks. bullets flying between police and five gunmen. it started at 10:00 in the morning as people were heading to work. morning crowds were scattering in fear. this, close to the presidential palace, the u.s. embassy, and the united nation >> as i got out of the car with my colleague, the second bomb went off, which was another suicide bomb.
7:13 am
>> reporter: police said the attackers had guns, pregrenades and suicide belts. the blast at the starbucks shattered windows, but the company says only one customer was injured and allen employees are safe. it's been 13 years since indonesia's deadliest attack, which killed 200 in bali. seven are dead this morning, including the gunmen. isis is claiming responsibility, saying they were foreigners. >> the indonesian government says they were aware of a threat around the new year, and anti-terror police there made nine arrests. as for the numbers of dead and injured, they've been changing by the hour. police now say all five attackers are dead, along with two civilians and 23 others injured. savannah, the u.s. embassy telling us this morning, no americans are among the victims. savannah?

7:41 am
the modern house, less than three. what's being done about it? the furniture industry group telling nbc news, it supports a federal flammability standard for upholstered furniturur but only if product changes are safe, effective and affordable. until then, experts say, there's no time too waste. >> that's why when your smoke alarm goes off, youon't have time to look around to get your wedding pictures. >> get out. >> get out as quickly as you can, jeff. >> there is some good news here. the national association of home builders telling nbc news that building codes make the actual houses safer these days. fire experts say the bottom line, you need to have an escape plan for your family. if you don't know how to create one -- i didn't in my house -- it's not a problem. the rededross has an easy worksheet online. i have a link on my facebook page right now. reports. i urge everybody to go there. we all need a plan. >> and praice it. make sure your kids understand it.

films at the oscars with our host, chris rock. see you then. [ applause ] >> there you have it. we're back with dave, our expert. watching this with you is like watching a football game. >> i get excited. >> i want to say one thing. adrian! sylvester stallone got the nomination. >> you heard the crowd erupt, even in the academy, pr people. everyone is excited for him. he could win. that was the only nomination for "creed." by my crude count here, i think the "revenant" did the best, not 12. i also counted 10 for "mad max." overall, i think it's predictable. i think people were hoping "star wars" would get best picture. it got a couple for visual effects but not best picture.
8:37 am
>> actor, it's predictable. cranston, dicaprioaddydicaprio, fassbender, redmayne redmayne. the actresses were good. the best director, i thought ridley scott could win this year, and he wast nominated. >> thanks, as always. coming up next, low fat, high favor. katie lee is here to lighten up a comfort food favorite.
8:38 am
nbc. we're back now at 8:48. all week on "today" food, we're lightening up your faf ritvorite dishes. hardy food made thin by katie lee. she's the co-host of food network's "the kitchen." we have an issue. you were going to make chicken parm. >> mm-hmm. >> my thought is, you eat light on the days surrounding chicken
8:39 am
parm, but you make real chicken parm. >> sometimes, you have to get your fix. if it's a week night and you want it and want to eat healthy and still, you know, have an easy meal, this is for you. >> there aren't many ingredients. let't' look at our food board over here. you're going to make this lighter in a couple of different ways. >> yeah. by not breading and frying the chicken, it's going to cut down on the fat. isn't it all about the melted cheese anyway? >> no, it's all about the fried bread crumb taste and flavor. >> that gets soggy in the sauce anyway. >> how do we start? >> we have an easyauce going. i started with grated onions and somearlic and olive oil. bring that up to temperature together. don't put it in a hot pan because it'll bornurn quickly. i'll add crushed red pepper and -- not yet. >> sorry. >> tomatoes. this is a quick sauce, so use really good quality toe naymatoes and
8:40 am
>> sure. >> simmer for 20 minutes then add the fresh basil. you can freeze this ahead of time. >> should we pretend? >> go ahead and put it? >> now the chicken. i put it between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound it. >> you like it thin, right? >> yeah, it spreads it out to cook evenly. it tenderizes the chicken and makes me feel like i'm eating more if it's big. kind of fools me. to season it, i use salt, garlic powder and pepper. >> again, this is the big change. at this part of the recipe, normally, we'd get the bread crumbs on here. >> normally, we'd be putting it in flour, eggs and bread crumbs. that adds a lot of calories to it. this way, we're cutting it down. i've got it in some olive oil here. brown it on each side. just a couple minutes. it's going to fininh cooking in the oven. you don't have to cook it completely right now.
8:41 am
you see how fast this is to put together, too. it's a quick recipe. the sauce goes right on top. you want to use an oven-proof skill letet so it can go in your oven to finish cooking. ladle on the sauce. you can serve with extra sauce. >> here's where you lighten it up again. >> i'm using part skim mozzarella. >> you're breaking my heart but it's okay. >> you'll love it. i promise. you're never going to even know it's lighter. >> this is poured on top. how long do you put it in the oven? >> with harmparmesan cheese. >> about five minutes. >> if you'll grab the oven door? >> let's check in witit our tasters downstairs. guys? >> we're busy eating. >> what do you think? >> really good. >> it'sthe spaghetti squash adds the feel of spaghetti. >> the breaded thing, you don't miss it? >> nope.
8:42 am
>> the crunchy bread crumbs tt have been fried? >> she's right, it gets soggy. the cheese is crunchy. >> it's all about the melted cheese for me. that's what i love. >> okay. >> you taste it. usually, serve this with spaghetti. i'mmsing spaghetti squash, a great alternative. >> natalie liked that. >> i love it. it only has about 42 calories in a cup so you can go to town on that. >> good. >> what do you think, matt? >> we are going to town. >> amazing. flavors are really good. >> for a week night when you're watching it, it's a good way to make a cut. >> any idea how many calories we saved there? >> a lot. >> katie lee, thank you. >> thank you. >> appreciate it. >> for more of thihi kind of recipe, these lightened up dishes, head to

8:51 am
it was manlgic. >> doesn't get better than that. >> it doesn't. >> people were saying before the globes you were the favorite, but it doesn't mean it still wasn't a shock and surprise and joy to hear your name called. what would it mean to you now at the oscars to hear your name called and come up on that stage? >> oh, gosh. i mean, it's theiggest honor you can receive in my field. it would mean a lot. just the nomination alone is incredible because it is -- the nomination comes from your peers voting. to have this happen, from actors i respect and hear so much about, that's inspired me over the years, it's so cool. i feel like i'm getting -- i get to join this cool club with people i love. i don't know. i've been taking it day by day and having no expectations, just feeling extremely grateful every day. each day, there is a new, exciting opportunity. just taking it from there. i mean, i'm 26 and life is long. we'll see how it all goes. >> i'm rious, you said you're

8:56 am
kind of like sundance, where it's gotten better and better. you know, we got best picture, as well. just the best thing, brilliant. >> what i love about the film is you said, it wasn't maybe big hollywood production, but it is the story that pretty much everybody has, i think, at least if they are an immigrant family. for you, it was something you really wanted to play, a truly irish role, right? >> yeah. it was really, really important for me to find the right irish role to play. i'm so proud of where i come from and, you know, it was important that the first irish role i played capture edd the lifestyle had growing up. but even what you were saying about it being a story of immigration, like basically,
8:57 am
