>> sarah palin has praised both trump and ted cruz in the past and last summer she publicly embraced trump's candidacy writing "trump has tapped into america's great populist tradition by speaking to concerns of working class voters." no official word from palin's camp or truchlmp's campaign. >> to the democratic side of things, thousands turned out to hear bernie sanders speak last night and he had a lot to say about his rival hillary clinton. andrea mitchell, we'll go to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. with less than two weeks to go, hillary clinton and bernie sanders are turning up the heat, each hoping for a breakout victory in the caucuses. >> when we began, we were 50 points behind the inevitable,

from the road. a new online poll this morning shows if the primary or caucus were held today, 52% were vote for clinton, 36% for sanders. but both campaigns acknowledge the race is tightening in iowa and new hampshire. if clinton should lose both, south carolina democrats say sanders is developing a field operation to challenge her there. so both candidates are getting more combative. barn storming iowa this week. sanders today holding four different events, turning up the heat on clinton, who is desperate to avoid a replay of her disastrous third place finish in iowa in 2008. if sanders can win in the early states, he has plenty of money to prolong the nomination fight, something the clinton team had never anticipated when she larchedlarch launched her campaign last year. matt and savannah. >> andrea mitchell, thank you

7:08 am
it's pie in the sky and can't get it done. is that an inspiring message? >> well, it's not. i remember the beginning of the debate and her false surge. since 2008 she's been the party's head candidate and not the heart candidate. she has never been able to fix that. >> donald trump is promising a huge endorsement coming in iowa. everybody is speculating it could be sarah palin. what do you know? >> i don't know anything. i didn't know anything when i did work for her, but she is someone and i rarely say this about endorsements but she could tip the scales in his favor because the voters influenced by sarah palin is the very last voter still on the fence perhaps between cruz and his archrival now trump.
7:09 am
if she puts her finger on the scale for trump, it could be impactful for iowa. >> before i get to my next question, do you have any reporting on it? >> the trump campaign isn't saying. donald trump's political director used to be a top adviser to sarah palin. as nicole said, she's been very close to cruz. this is a psychological win for trump if he gets it. >> a couple of hosts unleashed a shot across the bow to trump. it's fine if you want to take on cruz but not on personal ground calling him nasty, taking on the birther issue. is trump likely to be swayed by that? >> it could be but this is a guy who has taken on fox news and establishment and anti-establishment. he does need to watch it because talk radio has been very good to him and he doesn't want to give

7:11 am
drop, which is significant. i don't have to tell you. i remember you talking to matt a couple of weeks ago and saying the fundamentals of our economy are strong, they can withstand what's going on in china, for example, but does this oil thing change the equation for you? >> i think if you both raise interest rates, which is what we're concerned about, multiple raises with the fed and if oil drops down to 25, we will have some companies that will have to lay off a lot of people and we'll have a very difficult time paying bills and that's why oil is something we have to watch and it's not going in the right direction right now. >> and we're seeing iran wanting to put more oil into the market as a result of this deal. jim cramer, i know you keep watching it for us. here live at the strange, thanks very much. >> we are hearing from the families from those americans released from captivity in iran. and we're learning a little bit more about what it took to secure that freedom.

did you know a lot about each one of these topics before you starteded? >> well, i thought i knew a little bit about certain topics and i thought i knew about racism and you delve into it and then you find out how little you are and how embarrassed you and how embarrassed people in country, people associate racism with really like dumb, you know, people from the south who aren't educated. >> ignorant racism. >> but i met with a lot of educated intellectual racists which i found amazing so i wanted to illustrate that. >> you've got drugs and silicon valley and marriage as we just saw. for the marriage, you went on blind dates. what was that like? >> it was awful. >> i mean, like chardonnay in the afternoon. it was terrible. >> ever been on blind dates before this documentary? >> been on a couple of blind dates, never that sober, and, you know, once or twice in your 20s and once you're in your 30s you're like i'm not ever going to do that again so i hired real document aryans that would make
8:32 am
comfort zone. had to meet up with my first serious boyfriend. >> didn't you interview your ex-boyfriend? did that get uncomfortable. >> >> everything about it was awful and they said would i have to meet up to one of my ex-boyfriends and i'm like none of them are sneaking with me. >> why did he agree with that? >> enough time had passed. >> it had been 20 years. >> didn't want to get back together? >> thinking he wanted to do something. you know, when you have those moments, like i broke up with him and i'm going to wait -- he cheated on me or did something. wait until he sees me in ten years, i'm going to be rich and famous and then you get that moment and you're just like i don't want to have section with you anymore anyway. >> you went to peru to do hallucinogenic drugs, was that for the show or the weekend. >> >> the great thing about netflix they will fund my personal life and put it on camera. >> tell me about that trip. >> i said i wanted to do one on drugs, obviously i have a very close relationship with drugs and i've experienced so many and
8:33 am
camera look, you know, bad or not flattering because nobody in this business nobody really likes to do that and i have no problem with it so i did a lot of drugs on camera that were supervised, mixing sleeping pills with alcohol, just to illustrate with people what you look like when you're doing that. >> scare? >> not scary, but it's not pretty, not attractive, and then i said to netflix, i also want to go to peru and do iowsaka. >> being? >> the drug, yeah. >> doing another talk show for netflix. >> going to be like "chelsea lately." >> nothing like "chelsea lately." i'm using the documentaries as a bridge to show people tonally where i'm going. i wouldn't want people to think i'm becoming barbara walters because i wouldn't want to become her, no one can. >> better to just let that go. chelsea, good to see you. congratulations, don't make it so long next time.
8:34 am
>> "chelsea does" will be available on netflix starting this saturday. up next, the right way to decipher those beauty product labels that can sometimes be a bit confusing.
8:35 am
morning, this is "today" on nbc. we're back at 8:47. reading food labels and understanding the ingredients but what about skin care and cosmetics. editor is here about thinking why you may want to think twice about the products you're using. good morning, good to see you. >> good morning, savannah. >> a lot of people think the beauty products we see have to be approved by the fda before they can be on shelf. is that true? >> false, completely false. products are not approved by the fda before they hit store shelves. it doesn't mean the product is helpful but it's up to the consumer to be responsible. >> which means we want to get
8:36 am
>> does fda have the ability to recall a product? >> they cannot. they can only ask a company to israel the product and help them do so. >> what are some of the watch words as far as we're concerned when you're looking hat labels? >> very easy to be confused about this because products will use as a marketing strategy, natural or green, synthetic-free. these are not official terms so don't be fooled by that. realize also that even if something is natural, poison ivy is natural and that's harmful to humans. >> sounds good, might be green labeling, but you really need to look closely. >> need to turn the bottle around. >> which brings us to our next monitor here. when you do pull that bottle around there's words like -- i don't think i can profouns that, phthalates and parabens. >> it's considered a trade secret so companies do not have to disclose what the fragrance is made of, if you have allergies or sensitive skin, something to look out for. >> may mean some other chemicals that they don't have to list.
8:37 am
>> what about these two mouthfuls? >> parabens are used as a preservative and help products last longer and phthalates make you feel silky and smooth and they are considered endocrine disrirpts which may alter hormones, scientific organizations say. >> i've seen labels that say paraben free. some people want to avoid these and look at them >> exactly. we did reach out to the personal care products council for a statement and said their products are one of the safest most regulated by the fda. the fda as well told us that they are not -- they don't have the information to show that these chemicals are harmful, but if you are trying to limit your chemical exposure these are two to look how the for. >> great. let's turn around. little jar with a number. what does the number mean? >> beauty products do expire, just like food, so if you see this little jar, the number inside of it is actually the number of months after you open it you should toss it. >> i have stuff in my counter that's been in there since like the '70s. >> we all do. >> good to look out for it.
8:38 am
little "e." i've never known what this meant. >> meant it's up to the european union standards and will see it on some products in the u.s. the eu bans more than 1,300 ingredients. the usa bans only 11. it doesn't mean their products are safer but if you're trying to be watchful, something to watch for. >> maybe a little bit of a shortcut. >> these are products you like. tell me about them. >> you'll see some major brands, knew the jena has their own natural line, cleansers, moisturizers, everything you use every day. they avoid phthalates, parabens, things we were talking about earlier. >> what's in? >> mid-priced option and partnered with gwyneth paltrow to launch a cosmetics line, get the same colors, lips, all the makeup you use. >> and i've been hearing about tata harper. >> her rerecipes are amazing, all-natural things can be luxurious.
8:39 am

8:41 am
we want to make sure we get that gorgeous, gorgeous caramelization before we go into the slow cooker. otherwise it won't be as attractive. it will lock in all the juices and that's what we want. >> let's get start with your maiden voyage here. >> no, no, no, i've been testing recipes. >> okay. >> so i know the way of the slow cooker now, but before i didn't know. i was a virgin. slow cooker virgin, that's what i was, matt. >> let's just get to the ingredients. >> we'll mix this together and added our flour and what's that going to do, because we did it with a tomato paste it will make sure we don't have any lumps, we'll also add some beef broth, a little bit of red wine which is fantastic and now we're going to whisk all this together. >> can i mention we've got our tasters downstairs and i have a feeling they are already digging in on this. >> awesome good. >> fabulous root vegetables. got our onions and our shallots, carrots and celery. we'll fought in. what i want you to do is start
8:42 am
>> not my first rodeo here. >> i got it. >> al, how are these ribs? >> fantastic. >> amazing. >> you don't even need a knife. don't need a knife. >> these over here. >> yeah. why don't we do this. >> how long are these going to sit in here? >> they have to be covered in the liquid. >> >> absolutely. >> make sure we're covering. it not covered go ahead and add more liquid to it. >> that's going to go four hours on high, eight hours on low and then we have our beautiful cheese grits. >> ingredient panel, take a look at what goes into this. >> this is like a grits souffle. we have eggs that will lighten them up. we have worcestershire and hot sauce and sherry. if you don't want to put alcohol in you don't have to. substitute a little vegetable broth maybe. here we are, we're going to mix this, mix and mix and mix. it's going to go into a casserole, greased casserole and then into the oven for about one hour.
8:43 am
short ribs are fantastic. they are completely done. in order to get our sauce even better. >> yeah. >> we're going to go ahead and press all of these vegetables that are now so unbelievably tender. see how that's coming out. >> i want to review on the grits downstairs. >> perfect combination. >> yeah. >> so light. >> light. >> they are calling grits light. >> i said it's like a souffle. fancy. we love a souffle. >> anyway, we're going to go ahead and take that. >> i've got to actually say we're going to pretend that we've done all that.

8:47 am
six grammys, five american music awards and sold more aums than any american band in history. individuals, elvis, michael jackson, people have done better, but no band in american history has sold more albums. glenn frey also, by the way, came up a little later saying "the heat is on." when i first dialed in and worked backward. >> "beverly hills cop." >> right. >> a great soundtrack. >> and the mtv time for us. >> exactly. >> we were lyrics okay, the world is bigger than my neighborhood and he was a part of the world through mtv. >> "miami vice". >> had a little recurring role. >> and the egles is what he'll be remembered for along with don henley and they were american music in the 1970s so we're very sad to report his passing. >> you came up a couple of years after us. >> yes. >> a couple. >> just a couple. >> but "hotel california" takes me back to when i was living in spain and hanging out with my friends at a club. >> and that music was so much.
8:48 am
>> you listened to that in your car driving, you know, "desperado." that sing-along kind of music. >> that's the great part of the eagles and his career. for you it's radio music, for us it's mtv. over the holidays my nephew isaiah who is 19, we were sitting around just the two of us, and we started playing, you know, the best of the eagles, and i'm explaining to him and before i knew it "hotel california ""blasting because you can't listen to it low. way too low and you just escape. >> "peaceful's feeling." >> and they had such legs with their popularity. they were asked to get back together for a reunion tour in the '90s and they said who is going to come see a bunch of old guys play and they say they walked out, after they were convinced, first showers, and there were 75,000 people and i guess there's another generation who want to hear our music. >> tour upped to july of last year. >> they had to postpone. supposed to be in the kennedy center honors and unfortunately
8:49 am
he'll certainly be missed. also missed, actors of color who were nominated for an academy award this year. none, so here are all the nominees, okay. there you go. for best actor, supporting actor, supporting actress and day after last week's nominations oscar host chris rock tweeting the oscars oscars -- #oscars, the white b.e.t. awards. since then two a-listers have said they were not going to go to the event, of course, jada pinkett smith one of them. posted this video on youtube talking about her friend, host chris rock. >> begging for acknowledgement or even asking diminishes dignity and diminishes power. hey, chris, i will not be at the academy awards and i won't be watching, but i can't think of a better man to do the job at hand this year than you, my friend. good luck.
8:50 am
lot of people, there's been some pressure on chris rock to boycott, which i don't think he should do. >> to drop out of hosting. >> to drop out from hosting because i think he'll address those issues. >> neil patrick harris address it had the last time around, and now chris rock will likely obviously do the same thing. the question is will this always be addressed as the joke in the monologue because i know people keep saying chris rock will make them listen. enhas did it as well and trevor noah, i love his show, had the funniest joke, "straight out of compton," a hip-hop movie and the two best people nominate were white and "creed," black director, black lead, black supporting actress and the one person nominated is white, sill vestier stallone and brilliant in that, and i think those movies aside this is a
8:51 am
conventional conversation that indress alba, a lot of people pointed out, maybe a 70-year-old white guy may not get "straight out of compton," it should be because that's what you do for a living, you are a theater person. you are a movie person but like a performance that stops you in your tracks with a brilliant story, brilliant cinematography i think people are really honing in and asking why. >> they will have to change the makeup of the academy, and i think -- >> do you think that's the problem. >> >> i do think that's the problem, absolutely. those are the people who vote, and i think sheryl -- president cheryl boone isaacs responded and says she's heartbroken and frustrated. as many of you know we've implemented changes to diversify our membership. change is not coming as fast as you like and we need to do more better and quickly. >> i worry about that because that implies that if the art looks like you that's the only art you're understanding and they are saying 60-year-old white guys but these are people who work in that industry.
8:52 am
waffle house in burleson, texas and recruited the 70-year-old cook there. these are individuals who work in that industry that's seen as country. i'm asking. >> are they diverse, and obviously not enough and so they have to start, the industry itself, has to start bringing in more diversity, i mean, all kinds of diversity to that industry so that they have a bigger pool to pick from. >> well, clearly it's such an important issue, and it is -- it has divided the academy and its members so they have to do something about it and they are addressing it. >> it would be nice to see a few non-african-american on non-color actors speak out, jessica chastain did a great speech last year where she did a great speech as well. >> absolutely. >> on the chris rock question, think about the impact. what has a bigger impact, him staying at home or on a stage in front of 100 million people around the world for ten minutes and making a commentary and also
8:53 am
got a lifetime behind him of commentary about justice and race in america. that's the thrust of what he talks about. >> he's perfect person to be front and center on the issue and to be able to talk about it. february 28. >> front and center with steve harvey. >> gave you a little preview yesterday and more now today. he sat down with miss columbia to talk about the mistake that made world headlines, as you know, when he incorrectly named her miss universe last month and i asked steve about the night before the pageant. there were suggestions you were out drinking and gambling in vegas the night before. >> i've never been drunk a day in my life. do i gamble in vegas i? gamble in vegas all the time but i was as rehearsal. did a full run-through with everybody, perfectly. >> what was it that was hardest for new all that have. >> with all the support that i got, the hate was pretty intense. >> you said you had death
8:54 am

9:01 am
possible breakthrough in ivf treatment and new information about peloton zika virus. big medical headlines and here with that is what you need to know to protect your health with azar. new information about ivf and how it relates to test tube breakthrough. significant. >> traditionally you have the egg and sperm are fertilized in a dish and then the embryo is implanted into the womb. >> right. >> in this technique what the british researchers have done is actually insert the egg and sperm and put it into a tiny capsule an put the capsule in the womb and allow fertilization to occur there, the idea being the capsule has little tiny holes in it so there's some symbiotic exchange of fluid between, you know, the embryo and the mother and then the capsule is taken out and the researchers then select the healthiest embryos and reimplant those -- reinsert for implantation. they have done this in around 250 women internationally.
9:02 am
not the f-cassy is greater or less than traditional ivf but, again, the idea here is there might be some advantage to mother and baby to have the early exchange of fluids, that's the idea behind it. >> potential good news. the next development on the zika virus. for people who don't know what it is, the zika virus and what's the news in. >> the zika virus has been making headlines lately and the cdc has issued a travel warning for women who are either pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant to travel to -- as of saturday 17 latin american countries because it's a concern that this virus, which is rather -- i don't want to say benign, but rather innocuous in normal healthy individuals, that it doesn't really cause sickness in the majority of people and when it does it's usually a viral syndrome but there's a concern that came out of brazil in the last couple of months that the zika virus could be associated with this condition called microceph ha ly code for small brain or brain damage, especially in the first trimester, exposure to zika virus in the mother could expose a risk to the developing child
9:03 am
formation that really has had adverse outcomes for the child. >> a mosquito-borne illness. there was a case in hawaii recently as well. >> importantly the case reported over the weekend from hawaii was the first case of a child born in this country with microceph ha ly, with documentation that the mother had probably contracted zika virus, but, importantly, the virus was acquired abroad and imported into a had a. this was not a locally acquired infection and that's important. we still don't have any evidence continental united states. we go. ct scans, reports says more people are getting them. why is that significant? >> right. the numbers are actually quite staggering, i think twice as many cat scans are being perform in the last ten years. the main significant issue here is radiation. radiation and cost. modalities. they give a lot of information about the inside of the body, particularly bone.
9:04 am
be run in lieu of a cat scan that do not pose that radiation risk, yes, there are, mris, for example but in an emergency room or urgent care setting when you need information very quickly they prove incredibly useful. they are expensive and insurance needs to approve it and the issue is radiation. if the doctor says would i like to perform a cat scan is request number one is it necessary and, number two, is there an alternative diagnostic test that could be used in lew of a cat scan? sometimes the cat scan is the right test but not always. >> great summary on all the health issues. thanks so much, dr. natalie azar. >> come up, got to star alongside robert de niro and got to chris zach if you're looking to save money on your medicare part d prescriptions, walgreens says, carpe med diem.
