7:06 am
paid for with a tax hike on the healthiest americans that just about everyone says cannot pass this congress. why is he going this route? >> look, what the president is saying is that the middle-class economics that we pursued since 2009 have gotten us to where we are. you heard peter just talk about it that more and more americans are satisfied and feeling better about the economy. there's still work yet to be done and that's what he wants to talk about tonight and we all want a series of middle class tax cuts and by the way -- >> dennis, it can't pass and nobody says it can pass. people say it's dead on arrival. isn't it a political man ufeuvermaneuver, to get republicans in a bad spot as the 2016 election approaches? >> matt, the president's run his last campaign. what the president is saying that any tax reform ought to make sure that it benefits the middle class. we ought not avoid the working families of this country who have seen over the course of the

last three decades not only are costs going up, college costs and everything else, but their wages are stagnant. so the president has a proposal, very concrete to invest in the education anng that middle class families need to see those wages grow. you could do one of three thing, matt. you could either not do those policies and that may be the republicans goal or do the policies and not pay for them and add to the deficit. we've reduced the deficit by two-thirds since we took office. or three, you could do those things and pay for them in a responsible way and that's what the president is proposing. if the republicans have other ideas to focus on the middle class, let's do that. we haven't heard them, but we welcome that debate. >> there is a report in the new york times that says the administration may be subtly shifting its policy in syria given frustration of isis that the administration may no longer

7:09 am
in the streets of paris and our president was not there? >> you know, matt, we said we regret we didn't send someone more senior than our ambassador. that rests on me. that's my job. i regret it in particular because the melee that ensued after that has covered up and obfuscated the very good progress that our intelligence agencies, our law enforcement, fbi and doj and all of the cooperation they're undertaking not only with our french counterparts, but with our european allies across the board to confront this threat. that's what we ought to be focused on. unfortunately, the decisions i made obfuscated that effort. we'll continue to make sure that we're focused on that and working with our friends to make sure something like this does not happen again. >> dennis, thank you for your time this morning. i appreciate it. we'll all be watching the speech tonight. >> you can see the state of the union address at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific time right here on nbc. an investigation is under

7:11 am
eight acres outside annapolis, maryland. neighbors were stunned. >> we heard two thuses and the shot of flame went shooting high in the sky, and we thought, my god, what's that? >> reporter: 85 firefighters battled the blaze for several hours. at daylight the home was still smoldering, complicating their efforts there was no fire hydrant in the area so fire official his to shuttle in water. >> initially that was accomplished by using tankers and draft sites and then we transitioned to using a fire which was sitting out in the creek. >> the house was owned by don pyle, a philanthropist and chief operating officer of a technology company called sciencelogic. in a statement they confirmed the fire at pyle's home saying the case is under investigation. we have no further comment as this community waits for answers, neighbors say pyle and his wife are thoughtful people who enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren. >> really, really nice people. outstanding.

>> reporter: underscoring just how tragic this all is, there are still christmas decorations up at this home. fire officials resuming their investigation today. they couldn't access the home yesterday because it was just too dangerous. there were too many hot spots. they say this fire does not appear to be suspicious, but the investigation could take days, if not longer. savannah, back to you. >> kristen walker, thank you. natalie is here with a construction accident out in ohio. >> that's right. a highway overpass collapsed in cincinnati killing one person and injuring another. the southbound lanes of interstate 75 are expected to remain closed until at least wednesday night. police say crews were taking down the old bridge when something went terribly wrong. a construction worker was killed and a truck driver was injured. police say he is lucky because in a matter of seconds they say his fate would have probably been different. >> after several delays the man accused in the 2012 shooting spree at a colorado movie

7:14 am
it appeared to another another car on the highway. fortunately no one was seriously hurt. nine people were killed on icy highways this holiday weekend. so scary seeing that video. and you've got to see this. a dunk to remember, but for all the wrong reasons. it happened during the chinese basketball association's dunk contest. a player attempting to leap over five young men. he came up short, slamming into them, instead crashing to the floor and even was okay and perhaps next time different shoes and perhaps less guys. >> something we never have to worry about. getting involved in dunk competitions. >> unless it has to do with cookies or doughnuts. >> all right. let's show you what we've got going on right now. a couple of clippers coming across speaking of basketball. [ laughter ] that was pretty weak, actually.
7:15 am
you can see cleveland right now, no big problems although you will see snow showers and one to three inches out of these clippers and very fast moving as they zip through and another one coming back behind it early tomorrow morning on through tomorrow afternoon bringing light snow into the new york city. i mean, we're talking maybe one to three inches. there could be locally up to five inches in some spots, but for the most part it will be a quick hitter and then out. we'll get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 secondses. 3.66 percent and a 15 year fixed rate is at 2.98 percent. >> so the question is is it time to buy or refinances or will waiting it out make a more reward? we have nbc personal corr p respondent and then mike. good morning to the both of you. >> good morning. >> so break it down. what do you mean that the market

7:17 am
colts this weekend. the nfl isn't saying very much. it's saying simply, we're looking into it. >> we're on to seattle. >> before the new england patriots tackled the seattle seahawks in the super bowl they're being grilled this morning about deflategate, whether they tampeled with footballs to make them easier to throw and catch. star quarterback tom brady laughed at the suggestion. [ laughter ] >> would you care to weigh in on that? >> i think i heard it all at this point. >> wide receiver julian eddelman? >> did you feel any difference in the balls you're playing with? >> i don't even know anything about this. >> coach bill belichick considered a football genius by many is no stranger to controversy. in 2005 he was fined $500,000 for videotaping an opponent's signals during a game. spygate, as it's become known. an allowable formation he used over the baltimore ravens raised eyebrows. >> so how could game balls be
7:18 am
altered? according to league rules, both teams give a dozen balls to the referee who inspects them before the game. the balls are then given to runners on each side line. there's no clear answer on who has answers to the ball once there. >> bill belichick is always looking for that little bit of edge. no one knows the rules better than him. that said, there's nothing that's been proven at this point. belichick down played deflate deflategate in a conference with reporters. >> that was the first i heard this morning. >> whatever we need, we'll do. >> one analyst believes this scandal could have staying power. >> it's something that will be difficult for them to escape whether it's in these next two weeks before the super bowl or long after that. >> now if these allegations are proven, the nfl could fine anyone held responsible $25,000. it could also take away a draft pick with the patriots which it did in the way of spygate. back to you. >> ron, thank you very much.
7:19 am
what do we think? >> a lot of people are saying don't they all use the same balls. we were just talking about that. >> ron was showing they can have different balls on different side lines. >> and it was a very close game so i could see how -- >> it made a difference. >> brady had his hands on the ball. >> without social media the story is what it is, and now with social media people are having so much fun with it and it was hugely talked about in the way of memes. come into the orange room and we'll tell you about. the #deflategate trending most of the day on monday. here are a couple of our favorites and jim rome put this up. this is what the patriots are playing for. notice the lombardi trophy. deflated on top. how about the cereal, cheaties. the breakfast of chumps, it says there, al. >> nice. >> even michelin getting in on them. inflation matters. >> the patriots warning gronking may cause deflation.
7:20 am
players are laughing it off. you see tom brady laughing at it and gronk doing the same. >> we'll keep an eye on this as it goes along, guys. back to you. >> it is a lot. >> he doesn't like it either. >> thanks, carson. coming up, is it pro or anti-war? the battle over the oscar-nominated film "american sniper" which is now dominating at the box office. >> also a coyote problem in a very unexpected place. why their numbers are on the rise in downtown chicago, but first this is "today" on nbc.

curl power on today is brought to you by dove hair. we're kicking off something new, curl power. four years it's been a debate over straight versus curly hair. well dove hair has a new campaign focusing on moms daughters, and their curly tresss. >> so do you like your hair? >> no. >> i want my hair to be straight because when you have your hair straight it's really smooth. >> do you think that's more beautiful? >> yeah. >> i sat down with some of the
8:47 am
women and their daughters who participated in the dove hair campaign to find out more about their hair struggles. >> it gets in my face a lot. >> it's curly. it's bouncy. it's puffy. >> i would have to sort of dampen it and brush through it. >> even at an early age, their curls are a hot topic. sisters jewel and asia ages 11 and 12 and carina age 6, are already very aware of their curly hair. >> i at least touch it and pull it like this and do this. >> unck it looks better straight? >> i just feel it's easier to do and looks better. >> it's a love/hate relationship their moms are well aware of. >> she's pulling they are hair down like i want it straight. it's too poofy. >> she used to give me such a
8:48 am
hard time letting me leave her hair in mousse. she didn't like it. >> both moms and their daughters took part in a new dove hair campaign all about curly hair. we were with them when they watched the campaign for the first time. >> so do you like your hair? >> no. >> you don't like your hair? >> i want my hair to be straight because when you have your hair straight it's really smooth. >> do you think that's more beautiful? >> yeah. >> it doesn't really feel good to have curly hair. i try to make it straight but it doesn't work. i try to do this but it doesn't work. >> sometimes i just wish i could just rip it out, but i'm not going to do that. >> i think about my hair that i don't want it anymore. >> what did you think, claudia, when you saw that? >> sad. upsetting of course to see that. >> there's so many girls out there, and even women, that feel
8:49 am
less confident with their curly hair. >> but both elizabeth and claudia realize they set the tone for how their own daughters feel about themselves and their hair. >> before i did this the majority of time i would wear it straight. because i did this film and it was an eye-opening experience for both of us i think, i wear it mostly curly now. i realize i'm her number one role model. what we portray as mothers can carry on to our daughters. >> they hope to be part of the solution encouraging girls to love their hair and themselves. >> what do you tell your girls about their hair? >> i think they're beautiful. they look beautiful. and i want them to be confident with their curls. >> her hair is gorgeous. it's shiny. it's beautiful. it's curly. i love it. >> if you look at yourself now, what do you say? >> it's still puffy but it's still pretty. >> the curls are really, really curly. >> love it. it's yours. so be you.
8:50 am
>> so why does it seem so many women and young girls are so focused on their curls? child psychologist jenna hart hartstein is here. you see the gorgeous girls in the campaign. to think they have problems with with their hair. they're so perfect and beautiful. where does this come from? >> we know the image of beauty comes from mothers, parents of daughters, the media. there is an image we're trying to project is straight and sleek is what seen as normal that gets passed down and girls get stuck there. >> straight hair is the standard of beauty. >> is it though? >> yes. there would not be a campaign like this if it doesn't necessary. there wouldn't be web sites like mine if it wasn't necessary in
8:51 am
2015. our hair is not looked at as appropriate in its natural state. this is crazy. this is needed totally needed. >> you were one of those young girls growing up not loving your hair. what changed for you? >> i went to a college far away from my hometown. i had no access to hair care. i had to do all on my own. i hated my hair. the moment i got away from the curling iron and flat iron i didn't know what to do. my boyfriend, now husband, pushed me in the direction like hey, you're a psychology major. you're going to need to look at this. this is not healthy. so i started exploring and eventually embraced my curls. and i started a website to help other women along their journey to make it easier to if i was a platform. to come together and inspire each other. we need that. >> it is about the role models whether you're a mom or not a mom. it's the women in life giving you the messages. >> it's not just women.
8:52 am
it's anybody in your life. we know the more people moms dads, aunts, uncles anybody who are saying hey, embrace this unique and cool part of you. we know that curls are seven times more likely to embrace that part of themselves which builds their self-confidence. it's important to think of all the people in their lives. >> i wanted blue eyes and blonde hair growing up. embrace the difference. >> for a lot of women it is the grass is always greener. for women like myself brown women with highly textured hair there's more psychology. just the social stigma that is there that we have to fight through, which is why this is necessary. >> thank you both. we do want you to celebrate your curly locks. share with #curlpower. first this is "today" on nbc. #curlpower. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

8:56 am

. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is today's take live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome to today on a tuesday morning. it's januy 5th 2015, state of the union day. why are we holding these balls you ask? inflate gate? >> this is one of the lamest scandals of all time. 40 points. they won by 40 points. >> they are saying it still doesn't give them a right to
9:01 am
cheat. they didn't cheat for gosh sake. oh, please. >> patriots beat the you know what out of the colts 45-7. the claim here is that the patriots provide 12 balls for the game deflated them ever so slightly to give an advantage to tom brady on the ballot weather conditions. it's easier to grip and throw when it's wet if the ball is defleeted. we don't know yet, but there is an information as they go to the super bowl. >> that would not change the out come of the game. they would be fined or lose a draft pick if it's proven to be true. >> bill belichick and there is history there. >> the coach of the ravens accused them are a bizarre substitution. they have tricks with a lot of
9:02 am
teams. >> one assumes they have the ball at some point. >> cindy born writes for the sports blog and said they are particular and superstitious about the balls and each brings their. >> don't the rest check the ball for that? >> yeah. >> they make the argument that there was a pin that deflated it. it hadn't been checked. >> here's tom brady when asked about it. >> would you care to weigh in. >> i think i've heard it all at this point. >> that's it. >> go long, jerry.
9:03 am
>> nice. >> that's good with the count. >> bill belichick. belichick said first he heard. >> none of it's on camera. >> it was marked. >> now you're up to speed with all the things happening in the world on deflate gate. >> okay. belichick saying of course, they're going to cooperate. >> fantastic. >> all right. >> super bowl. >> all right. well there is some controversy over what was a number one box office movie this weekend, american sniper. michael moore tweeted out a series of tweets. my uncle killed by sniper in world war ii. we were taught snipers are cowards, will shoot you in the back. snipers aren't heroes. moore then wrote that he never actually tweeted the word
9:04 am
"american sniper". >> so he was coincidentally tweeting about snipers. >> he went on his facebook page. he praised bradley cooper's performance and seth rogin adding to the controversy with his tweet saying "american sniper" reminds me on the movie throwing in the third act "inglorious bastards." nazi propaganda film. i think as "the new yorker" put it it's a -- you can look at it both ways. it's pro war, anti-war film. the reality is it's more about the legacy of all of the troops when they come home from war and having to readjust and what they're dealing with to assimilate back to their normal lives now being not in a normal frame of mind.
9:05 am
>> i've seen the movie twice. it says to me it's hell with when you're there, it's hell when you're home. >> he has to decide whether to shoot a young boy. this is not what i signed up for. clint eastwood he said -- he's very anti-war. he said look this is a love story. this is about a family and what war does to families. >> i think it's a testament to the movie. it plays down the middle. whatever you want to take from it you will. >> and this man's funeral, people lined the streets in the rape and cold to salute him and thank him for his service to this country. chris kyle, his wife they've sacrificed so much and she continues to sacrifice. going out and doing these interviews and having to describe it. can you imagine what that is like for her? yes, it's capturing his life and what he did. she has to live this on her own
9:06 am
as a widow. michael moore, this whole notion of tweeting things and then -- >> backing off. >> -- pretending offer whatever you want to call it because, i mean you know what you said it own it kind of people and you deal with it you know every action has a consequence. to say, wait a minute whoa i wasn't talking about that. >> of course you were. >> michael moore, whether you like him or not, smart guy. brilliant filmmaker in many ways. exposed a lot of what was happening in the auto industry early on in his career. you can't take that from him. no, i just randomly -- what is that. >> stop it. >> thank you. stop it. knock it off. >> all right. toothless tiger. >> i'm all fired up. go to transition. i'll knock some teeth out after that conversation. tiger woods, yesterday we saw this picture of tiger woods. >> yeah. >> i thought it was a shadow. >> me too. >> well that wasn't the picture. >> then he was in disguise. then suddenly we saw this picture. i thought maybe he had licorice
9:07 am
chocolate will color out your tooth. no it turns out tiger woods lost a tooth. a photographer they were in italy to see his girlfriend, lindsey vonn and a scrum of photographers rushed the scene and someone knocked out tiger's tooth. >> the camera knocked out his tooth. >> what i love about this, he didn't leave. he was there for lindsey, tooth missing and all. would you two -- what would -- >> we were talking about that. >> went all that way to see her. >> absolutely. >> you wouldn't be on the ground panicking? >> is that a cap or is it -- because if your tooth gets knocked out, you are in pain. >> bleeding. >> shooting pain. >> it's exposed to the cold. >> you know if you read the stories though he had a security detail as he does. they took him around on a snowmobile. they didn't see that happen at any point. doesn't mean it happened. >> didn't it bleed? >> there was no big brouhaha scrum happened. it very well may have happened.
9:08 am
i believe him that it did. it was sort of a mysterious moment. he pulled that scarf down which lindsey said he keeps wearing that stupid scarf. >> do you think it was a cap and then the cap fell out? not like an actual root to tooth kind of thing, root to gum? >> i don't know. >> tiger, call us. let us know. >> that's right. the mystery of the tooth. >> yeah okay. this is dedicated to our dear friend tamron who because sometimes in the middle of our program she'll go i'm feeling hungry. >> is that how i sound? >> you do. it's a combination of angry and hungry. we've got a new app called hangry that offers a solution. >> the reason i get hangry is because i have breakfast at 4:00 a.m. and so by the time we start our show together i'm blind with hunger. >> exactly. >> as are all of us. >> you have cooking segments between 7:00 and 9:00 and often we don't get anything. the other day when martha stewart was on. >> right. nor on "morning joe" either.
9:09 am
>> this wasn't an accusation. >> no? >> no no seriously. >> we're hangry. >> i've always loved the word. >> what does the app do? >> the app says here according to research i can put in how many people that i'm having lunch, dinner breakfast. >> that are hangry with you. >> then within about 60 minutes my food our food -- >> so you can -- >> and you can determine what kind of food you're hangry for. >> i don't want thai this early. i love thai but i don't want it this early. there's a surprise. >> oh. let's see the surprise. >> pizza. >> chinese. >> not bad. so the vote is surprise? >> yeah surprise. >> surprise me. >> everybody likes surprise. >> i love the hangry is pulsating. here we go. >> do we get fed? >> i'm going to order -- it's ordering pesto pasta.

>> the last several years have been tough on homeowners. doorgd trulia, the housing market is 75% back to normal levels. mortgage rates have hit the lowest levels since 2013. the going rate for a 30-year mortgage was 3.66%. >> the question is is this the time to buy or refinance? we are waiting it out. here with a real estate quiz, we have senior personal finance correspondent sharon epperson and mike aubrey. good morning to both of you. before we get back to this, get to this quiz, break it down. what do you mean that the market is 75% back to normal and when does it get to 100%? >> if you look at peak levels from 2005, that's what you are
9:16 am
referring to. we are most of the way back but not there yet. when is that going to happen? if i knew the answer, i would be sitting on a beach drinking something fruit we an umbrella in it. we are at least a year out from peak levels. 2015 will be pretty flat. >> why are rates as low as they are. are they going even lower? >> the falling stock prices and oil prices, a lot of them have you worried about global growth. this caused a lot of people to get into bonds. bond yields have fallen and they are tied to mortgage rates. we have seen them fall over the last several weeks. we have more reports that make us worried about the health of the economy. lots of people think we could see rates fall either further, but how low will they go? no one knows and it's hard to pick the bottom. they are low and attractive to a lot of people.
9:17 am
>> sitting on the beach. you got this quiz for us. >> yes. the first question is if you are in the market to buy a house, should you lock your rate now or later? >> you said they are going down. >> you should do it now because you don't know how much they are going to fall. lock in the rate right now. you are still -- think about last year when you were at 4.5%. we are further ahead of the game right now. >> that's like being under the bridge trying to catch a falling knife. the out come is not going to be good. >> what town are you from? next question, mr. danger. >> if you are thinking about selling your home, should you do it now or later? >> agreed. 100%. inventory is very, very low. i think if you want to sell your house get it on the market now
9:18 am
and you are likely going to get more later as inventory starts to go up. >> you want to make sure you can get at least 20% of the equity or more so you can buy another home so you don't have to pay the mortgage insurance. if you are a renter trying to become a first time homeowner should you buy now or later? >> this is why i say that. rates are great. most people who want to be a first time home buyer don't realize how much goes into it and how much they need to afford. it's much more than just mortgage rates. i say later just so that you have time to do your homework. rates are great and if you know you can afford the down payment and your housing costs will be less than 25 to 30% of your income. if you haven't done that wait.
9:19 am
>> to qualify, later. >> we will have to point that out. >> you are thinking about refinancing. now or later? >> absolutely. i agree. 100%. we are in a market place where -- sharon said it. i think that we don't know where the 10-year bond will go, but we are seeing money at a 52-week low right now and i don't see it going a lot lower unless people give it away for free. >> if you bought your house in the last couple of years and lower your rate by one percentage point and recoup the cost it will incur to refinance in the next year or two it makes sense. otherwise you may want to crunch the numbers unless you will be in your house for a long time to recoup. >> it's a tie. >> up next, it could be much worse for your health than you thought. >> we will catch up with nick
