7:00 am
breaking news. north korea claiming it successfully tested its first hydrogen bomb overnight. the tremor of the size of a moderate earthquake. the reaction in countries around the world, swift and intense, but was it really an h-bomb, and if so, what didn't u.s. intelligence know it was coming? cruz in the crosshairs. donald trump questions ted cruz's eligibility, much like he did president obama's of. is trump feeling the heat as his republican rival surges in iowa while other republicans question the sincerity of the president's emotional news conference. >> every time i think about those kids it gets me mad. too much, a father outraged over this nearly two-minute
7:01 am
daughter by a tsa agenting? did it go on too long? did it get too personal? what the tsa has to say about it this morning. and gigantic jackpot. tonight's powerball now up to $450 million. one of the ever and the frenzy to buy more tickets could make it even bigger when those six numbers are drawn today, wednesday, january 6th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a wednesday morning. if al roker were sitting here he would say $450 million. >> i know, and it could get higher, could be half a billion dollars. i got powerball fever. >> that's a big jackpot. we're going to talk more about that. by the way, speaking of things that are exciting. as you know, we're going to head to the golden globes come up this weekend. after that we're not coming back
7:02 am
it's a morning show first, and we'll tell you about it coming up. . >> yeah, the whole show is head somewhere. more on that in a minute. first let's get right to our breaking news. north korea claiming it has detonated its first ever hydrogen bomb. if true, it would mark a significant and dangerous advance for north korea's military and a disturbing threat to the region. let's get right to nbc's chief global correspondent bill neely. bill, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. no question this was a surprise and an unpleasant one, especially for north korea's neighbors. the world's most closed country announcing what would be a dramatic escalation in its nuclear capability if that is is to be believed there was a test but was it really a hydrogen bomb? a north korean tv announcer claims the country's first hydrogen bomb test and calls it a success. we won't stop our nuclear program, she says, because of
7:03 am
they cheered in north korea's capital. they have seen three previous tests announced but never of an h-bomb, a far more powerful weapon. . the u.s. is waiting to invade our country, this man says, so it's the right thing to do. the hydrogen bomb, he says, is a reliable way of defending ourselves. the tremors from the underground explosions were felt in china pand in south korea where officials say it's a provocation. north korea's leader kim jong-un knows that and signed the test order anyway. japan, too, is alarmed. military planes taking off to test air samples. the u.s. ambassador meeting to reassure a government that says the test is a serious threat. >> we stand with japan and our partners and allies in solidarity with this north korea provocation. >> reporter: north korea has an aggressive nuclear weapons program showing off hardware three months ago.
7:04 am
latest test is that a hydrogen bomb can be smaller, lighter and easier to deliver on a missile warhead. north korea's leader kim jong-un is still consolidating his power and now flexing his muscles at a world that's looking at north korea are real anxiety. and it may take weeks to work out if this was a hydrogen bomb, and if it was successful and a viable device, but anything that can produce a seismic shock of 5.1 is dangerous, and there will be consequences for north korea. the u.n. will meet later and may move towards tighter sanctions, but kim jong-un is unlikely to be deterred by that. matt, savannah. >> bill neely in london, thank you. >> let us quickly bring in nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. andrea, if the north koreans have now successfully tested their first hydrogen bomb, that's a very dangerous first step forward, but if u.s. intelligence was caught off guard, that's also dangerous, isn't it?
7:05 am
this was, as bill was just saying, a complete surprise. they knew that something was up. they had seen some tunnels but no idea if this is, and this is a big if, we haven't confirmed it. it will be days if not weeks before they can absolutely confirm it, but it is this is true, a major escalation, a much more powerful weapon. they had done three previous tests, but they were lower yield plutonium devices. they also have a uranium program but no idea that they were this advanced if this is indeed a hydrogen blast. >> all right. andrea mitchell, andrea, stick around. we'll talk about poll nicks just a moment. >> yeah. let's turn to the presidential race now. new attacks from republican front-runner donald trump against both his republican and democratic rivals. in a moment, how hillary clinton is responding to trump, but, first, let's go to nbc national correspondent peter alexander in washington for the late on the republican side. peter, hi, good morning. >> reporter: hi, savannah. good morning. those republicans once just curious about trump arereow increasingly committed. here you go. a new reuters online poll today
7:06 am
42% nationally, t teeimes ted cruz's support. still, cruz polled best in iowa. the first caucus state and in a clearer sign yet that trump sees him as a real theat he's talking up questions about cruz's eligibility to be president. the nation's best known birther donald trump famously demanded to see president barack obama's birth certificate and now taking issue with texas senator ted cruz's birthplace, canada. raising the topic on msnbc's "morning joe." >> it's a problem for him. let's assume he got the nomination, and the democrats bring suit. the suit takes two to three years to solve so how do you run? >> reporter: trump later pinktating his point to "the washington post." a lot of people are talking about it, and i know that even some states are looking tat very strongly, he said. the fact that he was born in canada and he's had a double passport. cruz tweeting his response, this unforgettable seen from "happy days" with the fonz literally jumping the shark, suggesting
7:07 am
most legal experts agree he's the son of an american mother citizen. nbc's casey hunt asked jeb bush about it tuesday night. do you think that ted cruz is a natural born citizen and is eligible for the presidency? >> yeah, i do. >> reporter: trump isn't backing down from his confrontation with the clintons either. >> it's fair game when they attack me. i'm going to attack them >> reporter: billionaire insisting he only brought up bill clinton's extra marital affairs after hillary clinton accused him of sexism first. >> when she said that, well, your husband is now campaigning, it's open season. now if he wasn't campaigning, maybe it would be different, and if he weren't a past president it would be totally different. >> reporter: and hours after president obama's emotional appeal for an end to gun violence, the republicans remained unimpressed. trump teeing off from new hampshire. >> they are not going to take your guns away, folks. >> reporter: ted cruz mocking the president as a tyrant tweeting gun control is government control.
7:08 am
wife milania is speaking out candidly, the supermodel telling "hereby's bazaar" magazine that she's chosen to stay quiet but is, quote, very political in private life. sheization she hasn't thought much about life in the white house but has been working with the couple's 9-year-old son baron to keep his life in her words as normal as possible. matt and savannah. >> all right, peter, thank you. >> on the democratic side, front-runner hillary clinton is responding to some of trump's rhetoric as she tak her campaign west today. nbc's kristen welker has more on that. hi, kristen, good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. that's right. secretary clinton will be campaigning in las vegas later today. of course, nevada is a key western state, and it comes as the verbal attacks between clinton and trump are escalating. facing an increasingly competitive race in must-win iowa hillary clinton ignored donald trump's attacks late tuesday focusing instead on rallying her supporters here.
7:09 am
the organization we've been building here in the state. >> reporter: but earlier in the day, fireworks for trump. clinton saying his heated rhetoric makes him unfit to lead. >> we should not reward people who use inflammatory rhetoric, who use the kind of derogatory comments whether it's about muslims or mexicans or women or people with disabilities, whoever it might be. >> reporter: in an exclusive interview with msnbc's chris matthews clinton warned -- >> that's a sign of, you know, showmanship, of desperation that should be rejected roundly by the american people. >> reporter: strong words, but clinton stopped there, refusing to engage trump on his personal attacks of her and her husband week. for days trump has excoriated president bill clinton for the transgressions that nearly brought down his presidency. >> is this sexism, i i this what sns. >> i will not respond to his -- >> how can i rephrase --
7:10 am
i sound like a lawyer. >> he can say whatever he wants to say. i'll talk about what i wanted to talk about and thousands of miles away at the white house president obama announced new actions on gun laws. >> every time i think about those kids it gets me mad. >> clinton making no m mtion of the president getting emotional, praised obama while also taking a little credit. >> i was very proud that he made these recommendations, some of which i have been advocating in this campaign for. >> reporter: now, clinton has made gun control a key pillar of her campaign t.resonates with democratic primary voters and also one of the rare issues that she's seen as being to the left of vermont senator bernie sanders. sanders also praised president obama's actions on guns yesterday. the two democratic candidates will face off at a party dinner in las vegas tonight. matt, savannah, back now. >> all right. kristen welker, thanks very much. let's focus in on the state of
7:11 am
weeks to go from the iowa calkouses with chuck todd and amitchell and here in the studio nicolle wallace and mark halperin and managing editor of bloomberg politics and msnbc commentator steve kornacki. >> segment is over with all of yours resumes. ted cruz has launched a missive -- excuse me, trump has launched a missive on ted cruz's eligibility to run for president. do you think this is s sething that will have appeal with conservative voters, or does this have the feel of kind of throwing everything at the wall? >> i think it's a distraction. i think, you know, watch today when -- when thehealk radio circuit who has been very supportive of ted cruz, and any time there's been a split between cruz and trump they have sided with krumptz i suspect unless they somehow turn on cruz on this issue, i don't think this is going to be an issue at all with conservative voters. >> nicole, let me turn to you. where's myth romney. when is he going to endorse a candidate in this ration, and
7:12 am
>> i think he's wise to stay quiet because the age. arbiter or the referee in republican politics is long gone. john mccains another figure in the republican party. he used to be able to throw a flag and call this or that in bounds or out of bounds. the reason i think people like that have stayed kwai set that the republican base is so disdainful of the whole notion of any sort of establishment figure coming in and giving them any sort of guidance. >> if he were to jump behind chris christie or marco rubio you don't thihi it would make any difference? >> not only do i think it would not only help them, i think there's possibility it could hurt them. >> that leads me to the question with steve kornacki which is where is this vaunted republican establishment that used to be the heavyweights and could call balls and strikesing? where are they? is this campaign going tonight end what have we call -- >> if it rears its head it will be in new hampshire. it won't in iowa, and the biggest problem the establishment has in new hampshire slight now is you've
7:13 am
rubio, kasich and bush, running 10%, 12% and all eating up the so-called establishment vote and letting people run away so if one can consolidate they can give trump a run for the >> unon rare occasions when the discussion includes anyone other than donald trump and hillary clinton you hear more and more people saying chris christie is heating up. he's on the move. he may be peaking at the right time and yet if you look at his national polling numbers you don't really see that. why are people suddenly going behind chris christie? >> because to win you've got to win a state or do really well in a state and chris christie in new hampshire, to take the old line, perfect together. it's a good state for him. donald trump, based on his resources and his message and poll stand, he'll be a finalist. ted cruz, resources, poll standing, finalist. mitt romney, paul ryan won't create another finalist. you've got to create it if you're jeb bush or chris christie or marco rubio. christie looks like a guy who can create this for himself
7:14 am
message and he's swaggering. >> you agree? >> in new hampshire, can i see him emerge there. >> i think he's making more moves outside of new hampshire that's been detected on a wide scale. made some good moves in iowa. drove over the holidays from o'hea to iowa. national security voters in iowa who care a lot about fighting terrorism. the world is on fire. >> he could finish third in iowa and then mitt romney and others will say this is our one guy from our establishment lane, we're going to get behind him but i agree with nicole, may not help him. >> i want to get andrea into this conversation. let's talk about the bill clinton factor, andrea. obviously incredibly popular with democratic voters and yet we've seen this w wnd open up that donald trump has driven right through in terms of the negatives of bill clinton. is he a net positive or net negative when you factor all that in? >> ilthink given his overwhelming popularity in every poll, especially with the general electorate, i think it's a net positive. he's obviously a lightning rod
7:15 am
that's why you're hearing donald trump and all the others going after him. so it's a great issue in the republican primaries, but in the general election i think he's a net positive as long as he goes along with the guide action. you can see when we were with him the other day in nashua, in new hampshire, he really wanted to respond to trump and bit his tongue and pulled back but there will be a moment when he might go off the program. >> mark, that was one of your questions. will he take the bait at some point? >> the clintons have a big choice to make, do they want to spend january fighting with trump? they say if he goes after other americans that they will engage him, that they will hold him accountable. they don't want to engage on the personal stuff. let's see if they can be disciplined. fighting with trump, everyone we learned this year and last year is hard. >> thank you all so much. >> thank you. new developments this morning in another story. the investigation into last month's terror attack in san bernardino, california. federal authorities are looking for the public's help in

now, watch this. there's a lamborghini going to try to get through this. >> oh, whoa. >> in san diego. he actually made, it believe it or not. yes, he did, but then he got out and got out on that paddle board, no, and then this guy had to go get his car. this is rough stuff, and we've got more heavy rain coming again for today. look at what's happening. another storm system pushing on in. that first system now moving into arizona. the second one coming into central and northern california and eventually makes its way down to southern california. with we've got flash flood watch eds stretching from oakland all the way down no san diego. 19 million people in effect on this and also a winter storm watch up for 4 million people in the pacific northwest and southwest. more snow in the sierra. here it comes. more heavy rain. this is the last round of the heaviest stuff. rain and snow will be added to the previous totals so we'll be watching that as well. snowfall amounts. we are look amount a lot of rain

7:30 am
are 1 in 292 2292,201,338. you're more likely to get struck by lightning, become president of the united states, get bitten by a shark or die from an asteroid hitting you in the head. now, if you are going to play this game just remember it's a $2 bet. it's not likeou increase your odds by buying more tickets, so don't go play the whole paycheck here while you're trying to win. if you buy a $2 ticket or buy five tickets your odds are about the same. that's the way statistics work according to the statisticians. now, if you are lucky enough to walk away with this jackpot alone, you'll still have to pay some taxes, so your winning will be $275.4 million that you can take as a lump sum, or can you take it out over 30 years, and those federal taxes, they will take about 25% and then, of course, you have state taxes unless you happen to be in one of those states like florida where you don't have to pay
7:31 am
aren't any. we found this lucky dollar on the sidewalk today, so we're going to take these two and we're going to play those and we're going to do a quick pick here and hopefully among the many people playing there will be a winner, because if there is not a winner, this will roll over, and haven't quite calculated how big it will be, but it will be likely the largest jackpot ever. so, guys, there's my numbers, what do you think? >> kerry, if it rolls over, there's a 100% chance you'll be doing that live shot again next week. >> kerry, powerball fever. >> reporter: and if you don't see me here tomorrow you'll know why. >> powerball fever at that store is 98.6. not exactly burning up there, guys. by the way, guys. >> oh, come on. >> really. >> what if i win, then what happens? >> i get 75% of it. >> make that deal.
7:32 am
one ticket or bought 500 tickets. >> according to kerry. that doesn't make anyny sense to me. >> remember who bought you those tickets. >> when a guy. >> okay. we're going to change gears and talk about one father's outrage over what he seess as an overaggressive tsa pat-down of his 10-year-old daughter. it dragged on for nearly two minutes and you have more on in. >> kevin pace is normally an advocate of security, but he says that the pat-down at airport in raleigh, north carolina, made his 10-year-old daughter feel very uncomfortable, and he says it crossed the line. using his cell phone camera a shockeke and upset father record his daughter receiving what he believed to be an unnecessary and invasive tsa pat-down. >> she just had a completely blank stare on her face. i could tell it was very uncomfortable for her. >> the video shows the agent slowly and meticulously frisking the 10-year-old for nearly two full minutes. >> what was going through my mind is this is annoying.

7:34 am
cell phone with an alarm going off in the child's bag requiring additional resolution procedures. as for the paces, they understand the importance of airline security, but when it comes to kids, there has to be a better way. >> maybe they need retraining. maybe they did everything by the book. i don't really know, but it was, you know, an uncomfortable situation. >> and pace says he has contacted his u.s. congressman about the incident, and they will be filing a formal complaint. obviously tsa doing their jobs, but i think we all have to question on a 10-year-old, is it excessive? with children it's always a difficult baroroter. >ou can understand how a father would feel. >> absolutely. >> mr. roker. >> all right. let's show you what we've got going on right now. another area of moisture affecting the folks who got flooded out last weekend. here we go. we've got gulf moisture coming up out of south, and it will be combining with that storm system that brought all the heavy rain to california, so rain will be
