it is friday, february 12th. coming up on "early today," life threatening wind chills a polar vortex is hitting the northeast while the west coast faces the exact opposite. riding high after new hampshire. bernie sanders took a few punches in the former first lady on debate night. the kind of criticism that we've heard from senator sanders about our president i expect from republicans. i do not expect for someone running for the democratic nomination to succeed president obama. >> that is -- [ applause ] madam secretary, that is a low blow. >> and the fbi is looking into a deadly machete attack at a columbus restaurant as a possible terror attack.
plus, dozens killed in a massive riot at a mexican prison. >> rethinking the olympics. is it really worth risking the zika infection? and plenty to keep you entertained during this frozen valentine's day weekend. somebody call the room because things are about to get hot. >> "early today" starts right now. good morning, everyone. a polar vortex is making its way to the east coast bringing bone-chilling weather down to florida. experiencing winter's bite with whiteout conditions. in scranton, a water main break made for a real mess as ice coated nearby homes, sidewalks, power lines and trees.
joining us with more on the brutal cold, sounds like we need to hibernate? >> that's right. outside doors it won'ting nice. enjoy the indoors. out here across the west, it's pleasant. temperatures in the 80s to the 90s. it's almost like memorial day weekend, not presidents day weekend. 32 below zero, current windchill in international falling. the contrast between the west and the east. if you are in the west and traveling east this weekend, i advise you to pack heavily your winter wardrobe. look at these temperatures in the big cities. 2 degrees. we're going to challenge a 100-year record in new york city by sunday morning, and it looks like temperatures all across the northeast will be well below zero. dangerous cold. people need to take it really seriously. >> and stay indoors as well. stephen, thank you so much.
up next, politics. the two presidential candidates faced off in milwaukee, from attacking president obama to sparring over immigration, civil rights, even henry kissinger. >> she talked about getting the approval, support or mentoring of henry kissinger. now, i find it rather amazing. because i happen to believe that henry kissinger was one of the most destructive secretaries of state in the modern history of this country. i am proud to say that hengry kissinger is not my friend. i will not take advice from henry kissinger. >> i know journalists have asked who you do listen to on foreign policy and we have yet to know who it is. >> well, it ain't henry kissinger. that's for sure. >> one of the biggest back and forth came when clinton jabbed sanders for not supporting president obama. >> today senator sanders said president obama failed the presidential leadership test and
this is not the first time that he has criticized president obama. in the past he's called him weak. he's called him a disappointment. and i couldn't disagree more. >> the kind of criticism that we've heard from senator sanders about our president i expect from republicans. i do not expect from someone running for the democratic nomination to succeed president obama. >> that is -- madam secretary that is a low blow. i have work would president with president obama for the last seven years, but you know what? last i heard we lived in a democratic society. last i heard, a united states senator had the right to disagree with a president, including a president who's done such an extraordinary job. so i have voiced criticisms. you're right. maybe you haven't. i have. >> later, sanders hit back on critics saying only clinton's campaign is historic and that he was thwarting history.
>> well, you know from a historical point of view, somebody with my background, somebody with my views, somebody who has spent his entire life taking on the big money interests, i think a sanders victory would be of some historical accomplishment as well. the share of the twitter discussion was a dead tie. although sanders keeping with recent tradition got more followers, and while sanders dominated on facebook, clinton was able to narrow the gap from the start of the debate to the end. to the republican race now -- and donald trump who is hitting hard all groups, he took time to sport a mohawk baby, rocking a pacifier prp it wasn't all fun and games. much of the day trump was in a heated back and forth with nemesis ted cruz after cruz
