7:03 am
we're waking up after the winter weather advisory in 17 states, stretching some 1 rksz ,200 miles from georgia to maine. in a lot of spots, we expected the snow to turn to rain overnight. rush hour is still dangerously icy in locations. all of it, part of the storm system that spawned tornadoes in the south and the east. >> reporter: the national weather service confirming one of those tornadoes touching down near the rural town of century, florida, about 45 miles north of pensacola. at least ten homes were damaged. first responders and volunteers forming a human chain to pull a 94-year-old woman from the debris. >> hallelujah. >> reporter: strong storms blew through central louisiana, tearing up trees and power lines. high wind gusts causing the roof of this pizza hut collapse. >> it fell on my car. the car was shaking, my window busted.
7:04 am
it was scary. >> reporter: people across mississippi rocked by relentless twisters. >> jackson, mississippi, tornado, i don't want to get too far ahead of it. >> reporter: the severe weather hitting a high school during classes. >> we were all getting down and, like, praying. hoping we were being all right. >> reporter: meanwhile in the northeast, a plane headed from the dominican republic to new york city had to be diverted to a snowy manchester, new hampshire, overnight, because runways at jfk were even worse. >> delta 944, a diversion? >> we did, left holding at kennedy and came right up here. >> reporter: here in the washington, d.c. area, snow gave way to freezing rain and sleet. virginia state police responding to more than 500 crashes, as untreated roads and sidewalks became treacherous. with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, it has all the makings for a dangerous
7:05 am
>> and we've seen that already here with really icy roads and sidewalks. while the temperatures are expected to climb throughout the day, with steady rain, the concern now is the ice, but the concern for tonight's rush hour will be a flood watch. >> lots of weather to talk about. thank you. >> mr. roker is here tracking it all. al? >> minutes ago, we got this video from i-81, north of scranton. icy roads causing a massive pile-up. you can see, in fact, a lot of the folks, including this videographer, ran up and got out of the way on the side of a hill. this trucker, stuck there, trying to make calls. they're clearing things out now, and i'm hearing i-81 north of scranton is open again. we've got a tornado watch down in southern florida right now. this is part of the trailing front that hallie was talking about. look how far it goes, all the way to the northeast, cleveland,
7:06 am
we have winter storm warnings, advisories and wind warnings. 50 million people at risk from north carolina to maine. look at the temperatures. buffalo, 28. syracuse, 34. new york city, 54. 56 in boston. heavy rain pushes up by late this afternoon. that's where we're going to have the problems with flooding. it gets out of here by wednesday. rainfall amounts, we're looking in some areas, upwards of an inch to two inches. it'll make for flooding. lake-effect snow from erie to watertown. another 8 to 12 inches of snow there. we've got a lot going on. we have winter storm warnings. we have flood watchings and warnings. it's going to finally calm down by tomorrow. >> al, thanks very much. let's turn to politics. of course, less than a week until south carolina's republican primary. donald trump ratcheting up the rhetoric against ted cruz, threatening to sue him. he's also set his sights on former president george w. bush
7:07 am
brother jeb bush for the first time in the campaign. we begin with peter alexander, in south carolina this morning. good morning to you. >> savannah, good morning to you. this was, by far, the biggest crowd jeb bush has seen. 3,000 people to hear from his brother, the former president, bush 43. george w. bush calling for vision. in a direct contrast to donald trump, praising his brother as thoughtful, trustworthy and measured. will any of it matter? >> reporter: donald trump in the lead. >> we've got a win on saturday. we've got a win. >> reporter: and on the attack. , reignited his feud with ted cruz. >> ted is an unstable guy. i've never, ever met a person that lies more than ted cruz. >> reporter: threatening to sue the canadian-born senator over his eligibility. >> he doesn't have the right to serve as president or run as president. he was born in canada.
7:08 am
doesn't apologize. >> reporter: cruz laughing it off, saying donald has lost it. >> we are not in grade school where you say, liar, liar, pants on fire and not respond to the subject. >> reporter: the front runner also went after the republican national committee, accusing them of stacking debate audiences with special interests. seeming once again to not rule out a third-party run, going against the gop pledge. >> i signed a pledge. but it's a double-edge pledge. as far as i'm concerned, they're in default of their pledge. >> thanks to brother for giving us something to do today, something important. >> reporter: the last republican to hold the oval office, george w. bush, joined brother jeb on the campaign trail for the first time. the former president repeatedly dismissed the party's front runner without calling out donald trump by name. >> in my experience, the strongest person usually isn't the loudest one in the room. >> reporter: 43 arguing real strength is not empty rhetoric or bluster.
7:09 am
oval office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration. we need someone who can fix the problems that cause our anger bush. >> reporter: hours before trump attacked w. over the iraq war and 9/11. >> the world trade center came down during his reign. it was like, you know, he was the top. >> reporter: jeb had his big brother's back. >> he didn't know 9/11 would happen but he rolled up his safe. >> our latest surveymonkey, nbc brks krrks bc online poll, shows 56% of republicans nationally believe donald trump will be their party's nominee. that number is up 14 points in the last week. savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you. let's bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning. the >> the road to the nomination
7:10 am
it has a reputation for being a slugfest and it's not disappointing. what do you make of this latest back and forth between donald trump and ted cruz? trump suggesting he might sue cruz. even danger ling the notion of a third-party run, threatening the rnc. >> he is a little bit. i think what he's trying to do is keep cruz from getting any momentum. look, in south carolina, it appears to be a two-person race. the winner between trump or cruz, assuming they are battling for first, then the winner will have won 2 of the first 3 and will be the front runner and favorite going forward. that's why you see, basically, trump pulling out all the stops and cruz pulling out all the stops. the threat of the lawsuit, he does have some standing, trump. if he files against -- files with an election law clerk and says, hey, you shouldn't put cruz's name on the ballot, it's hurting me, that is a way for him to have standing with a lawsuit. by the way, the other part of
7:11 am
the second primary is the battle for third place between rubio and bush right now. >> let's talk about this, chuck. we haven't seen a lot of data or polling from south carolina since the debate on saturday. trump has the double digit lead. cruz in second. all eyes, maybe, on third. is that still where it stands now? >> i think it's where it stands. look, nobody is quite sure how much damage did trump do to himself with the attacks on george w. bush. he is pretty popular in south carolina. there's chatter that he hurt himself. if he did by a few points, he still had a lead. i think that, you know, all of us are not making a living this year trying to predict the demise of donald trump. >> chuck todd, thanks. stick around for your take on the democrats in a moment. speaking of, hillary clinton will deliver a major speech on race in new york city today. bernie sanders heads to south carolina and georgia. for now, all eyes are on the next caucus in nevada, and that's where we find chris kristin en welker welker. >> good morning.
7:12 am
online poll shows clinton maintaining her national lead over sanders, 50% to 40%. the race is tighter in states like nevada. she will be courting african-american voters today with the speech of race. it comes after a busy day of campaigning here in the reno area. >> i love being here. >> reporter: in nevada, hillary clinton is trying to avoid another upset. >> i want to break down all the barriers that stand in the way of americans succeeding. >> reporter: it was this moment that got everyone's attention. >> and the dog, if it's not true, he's going to bark. >> reporter: when she recalled a decades-old political ad that featured a dog that barked when someone lied, arguing the same rules should apply to republicans. >> oh, the great recession was caused by too much regulation. bastion bark, bark, you know? >> reporter: this as chelsea stumped in ohio and bill clinton in florida.
7:13 am
the tea party. just tell people what they want to hear. it's going on now in our party. >> reporter: sanders brushed aside clintons' criticisms. on monday, he ramped up his outreach to african-americans, a group he struggled to work over. >> it's working people standing up and fighting. what is the civil rights movement about? >> reporter: after meeting with the families impacted by the flint water crisis, sanders demanded change. >> if we can rebuild villages in iraq and afghanistan, we can damn well rebuild flint, michigan. >> clinton's address on race will take place in harlem. senator sanders will be courting black voters today. he'll be introduced at a prayer breakfast today by danny glover, who will also join him at a
7:14 am
>> thanks. chuck is still with us. let's talk about the democrats. nevada's caucus on saturday. caucuses, harder to predict for pollster pollsters. when you look at the race and the body language, who looks confident and who looks nervous? >> the clinton campaign seems nervous and the sanders campaign seems confident at this point. this is clearly fairly close. they've both dumped a lot of money in here. this is actually though a must-win for sanders. here's why. there is this idea he can't win in states that are more diverse. nevada is base ically 60/40 white to non-white, at least the way the democratic kau kis is caucus is going to turn out. a narrow loss and the clinton campaign can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing south carolina comes and they're likely to roll there, too. a sanders victory puts more pressure on clinton. then the questions are, oh, maybe sanders can win minority votes. then the pressure on her to win
7:15 am
it's been in any state so far. >> chuck, do you see a shift in the way hillary clinton is framing this race, with more of a contrast, going right after sanders recently? >> if you listen to bill clinton and chelsea clinton and hillary clinton, they're all trying to make this a referendum on sanders. they know if it's a referendum on hillary clinton, she won't do as well with democratic voters. put the focus on sanders. they think the more attention given to his ideas, his potential tax hikes, lack of foreign policy knowledge, suddenly, it'll give pause to democratic voters and help her. she's always been better when she gets to frame an alternative. that's what they're trying to do now. >> chuck, to put meat on the bones of your first answer, when you say the clinton campaign is acting nervous, what do you mean by that? by the fact they're spending so much time in nevada? >> they realize that it's a -- that losing again, and suddenly you could make an argument that essentially, sanders won the
7:16 am
the iowa victory, every day that goes by, there's questions about how big was that victory and did she really win, or did she luck out because of the way the counting process is? that's what i mean by that. they're very nervous. the idea of losing back to back. to lose the first state they faced off against each other that isn't an overly white state, that's what makes them so nervous. that's why, if they can win now, they put away a lot of questions with her. >> thanks so much. now to the nation's capital where the debate rages on over who should replace justice antonin scalia. andrea mitchell has more on that looming battle. good morning. >> good morning. the battle to replace antonin scalia is reshaping that 2016 campaign. with the republican presidential candidates taking a hard line against confirming anyone that president obama nominates. no matter how moderate. >> reporter: it is the one issue
7:17 am
candidates agree. no one nominated by barack obama should be considered for the salespeople court. >> the balance of the constitution is at stake. >> the republicans shouldn't allow it to happen. >> we're one justice away from a radical five-justice, left-wing majority. >> reporter: for ted cruz, it's personal. he clerked for the high court, argued before it and knew scalia well. within hours of the justice's death, the battle lines were drawn. republican senate leaders saying they won't confirm any obama nominee to the high court. democrats firing back. >> it's unprecedented. it's pure politics. the supreme court, of all places, should not be tied up in politics. >> reporter: the president in california hosting an asian summit, saying he is not backing down. >> those responsibilities described in the constitution are ironclad. there are no caveats. the constitution doesn't include exceptions for election years or the president's last term in office. >> reporter: hillary clinton weighing in, unleashing a flurry
7:18 am
gop senators. hillary tweeting, fill this vacancy. potus will do his job. do yours. the scalia succession fight now also a campaign issue for the democrats. >> last time i looked, the constitution didn't have a parenthesis. that's not the wie ay our system works. >> the president has a working list, including several candidates who have been supported unanimously for lower courts by republicans. if the republicans won't even consider moderate choices, the president could fire up his own democratic base, nominating a minority. >> a lot of political strategy going into this decision. andrea, thank you very much. in other news, pope francis returned to mexico city last night after a day-long trip. thousands of people lined the
7:19 am
the pontiff in his white fiat. a touching moment early in the day. pope francis interrupted the event to come down and bless a child in the wheelchair. during prepared remarks, francis offered advice for creating happy families. saying, quote, do not end the day without making peace. >> it's a version of, never go to bed angry, right? >> great advice, actually. let's get the rest of the forecast. >> kids, i'm sorry about last night. anyway, we're looking at a snowy mess throughout the great lakes. icy conditions here in the northeast. especially north and west of new york city and pockets of the appalachians. also looking at a beautiful day in the southwest, into southern california. we'll look at that more in the next half hour. so my kids don't have to forage, got two jobs to pay a mortgage, and i've also got a brain. life's short, talk is cheap. i'll be working while you sleep. still don't think

8:05 am
>> this is disturbing because a lot of people take the over the counter medicines. i don't get the link. why would heart burn medication potentially affect the mind and cause dementia? >> right. so this is all, at this point, hypothetical, savannah. the idea here is something we would call biological flauzability flauz plausibility. how do you go from this medicine that affects your stomach to affecting your brain. theoretically, they could affect the brain chemistry. from animal models, we know they could affect the abnormal protein levels found in alzheimer's disease. the other thing i think is probably most important, in human data, we know that the medicines can cause b12 deficiency. b12 is definitely linked to dementia. >> to underscore, it's not necessarily causation.
8:06 am
dementia and overusing these drugs, right? >> absolutely, absolutely. it's very important to reiterate that. this nearly was an association. certainly, does not prove causation. the study authors themselves would suggest that not only would they need to improve the methodology of the next study that would show something like this, to do something called a randomized trial, but this was a study that looked at linking diagnoses with use. >> it raises a good conversation, which is, you should ask yourself, do you need to be on these heart burn medications. >> right. i think one thing that we always like to reiterate, especially as physicians are taking care of patients, is when you're going through a medication list and keep on refilling medications automatically without really understanding, is there an indication for continuing this medication long term. for some people, it might actually be the case. are there alternative medicines? are there other things, such as lifestyle changes? i understand there are people with significant heart burn,

we're back at 8:36. time to talk dirty, people. we all know to clean the sink, mop the floors and wipe the counters. even the most conscientious of cleaners may overlook household items, allowing germs to spread. today contributor elizabeth joins us to reveal the most common mistakes. it's about to get real. i learned a lot from reading about that. there's three things we should wipe down that we never do. >> doorknobs. you want to wipe down the refrigerator door handle. think about all the times you touch that. and you always want to wipe down
8:35 am
another one, the toilet paper holder. it's near the toilet. every time you're flushing -- >> everything is swimming around. let's start in the kitchen. i never thought about cleaning the dishwasher. i thought it was cleaned every time you run the dishwasher. >> anything that gets water running through it, you want to clean frequently. water is a bacteria dish. you're like, heat and water. just because you're washing the dishes doesn't mean your dishwasher is actually cleaning. what you want to do is you want to take white vinegar. it is like the wonder cleaner. i say it all the time on this show. put it in a cup, like a dishwasher safe cup. put it in the top, close it, run it through a full hot cycle. you're going to open it and take baking soda, spread it in the bottom. >> sprinkle it in the bottom? >> it'll deodorize it. run it through half a cycle. when it's dry, leave the door open and let it air dry.
8:36 am
soda, or sprinkle a little bit. >> no, a little bit. similar tips for the coffeemaker. white vinegar, run it through. the calcium builds up. this cleans your machine. you can find all the tips on today.com. >> you'd put the vinegar in where you'd put the water. >> run it through a cycle. you want to run it two times after that, as well. >> lesson learned. let's hobble over here. how about the bathroom? >> number one thing you might be forgetting to clean is your toothbrush holder. clean it every single week. basically, you can take it out. i'll do it. you take it out, rinse it with water. also, change your toothbrushes. rinse it with hot water. then pour some -- well, it's easier to open. >> looks like mouthwash. >> pour that in and let it sit and rinse it out. that'll also deodorize and desanitize it. >> can i put that in the dishwasher? >> you can.
8:37 am
there. >> the laundry room. >> now, your iron, you might notice, like i have a friend who said to me the other night, she turned it on and went to put the steam on and gross stuff came out. >> or it can get brown. >> this one is clean. the way to clean that, this is the thing you have to do when you need to do it. it's not a regular maintenance thing. take white vinegar and baking soda, again. you make a paste and rub it over the front of the machine. then you're going to wipe it clean with another cloth. then take cotton swabs with distilled water. you're going to clean all the vents. then you're going to take the distilled water, pour it into the thing, run it through a few times. >> squirt it out or whatever? >> do it for five minutes on the cloth. that'll clean it. >> as needed, you have to do that?
8:38 am
you don't necessarily have to run out and buy a new one. you can clean the one you have. >> over here in the bedroom, you wash the sheets, due say reforget ing refor we forgetting? >> pillows. one thing you can get are pillow protecters. it's another layer. you should wash your pillows two to four times a year. this is not good for foam. you can't wash foam pillows but you can wash like a poly and a feather. if you grab the pillow, put them in the washing machine and wash them on the hottest cycle. use a liquid detergent -- >> i'm elegant walking over here. >> use liquid, not powder. powder leaves a residue. once washed in the hot cycle, put them in the dryer. >> okay. >> you put it into the dryer and throw in tennis balls. >> why?
8:39 am
it bounces around and keeps the pillows fluffy. dry it about two hours. make sure they're really dry. take them out periodically, fluff them up and put them back in. you have fresh, clean pillows. >> i love it. make sure the tennis balls are clean, right? >> yeah. >> we did a survey. how often do you wash your bed pillows? 60% said never. i feel better. >> now, i hope it's more. >> i hope so, too. i learned a lot in this. thank you very much. if you want the tips or more information, go to today.com/home. coming up next, we catch up with jason sudeikis.

8:42 am
olympian and his college coach, played by jason sudeikis. >> airplane gets people excited the same way they come out and watch a man race. what they really want, what really gets them worked up, is to see you crash. to see you fold up that biplane like a piece of paper. watch the ground crew drag you flames. that's exciting. >> jason sudeikis with us now. good to see you. >> nice to see you. >> one of the directors you worked with said you were a young jack lemmon. so great comedically and, dramatically, equally impressive. how hard is that transition? >> doesn't feel hard going in. there are people who would make the argument i wasn't funny in the comedy. i think it's a matter of the poster, right? no, it feels the same way coming out as, you know, it does doing anything.
8:43 am
to kill bosses, trying to smuggle drugs across the border, trying to make that as believable as possible. no different here, believe it or not. >> were you thinking, i've done so much comedy, i'd like to try the dramatic role and flex those muscles? >> not consciously, no. it shows up when it can shows up. the script, when i read it, i said, this is cool. this reminds me of something i would have -- my dad and i would have went to see when i was a kid. like gene hackman and the hoosiers or something. cool coach role, hold a hat and a stopwatch and support stephan james. it's like, i knew him when. >> larry was his coach at ohio state. famed track star himself. >> yeah. >> what was his relationship like with jesse when they met? >> i mean, tense but mostly because of the, you know -- the
8:44 am
racism at the time. it was 1936. in the states, and worst arguably. yet, larry was this amazing guy who was ahead of his time, both in his innovations as a coach but also as a man who didn't -- race didn't concern him. >> accidental non-racist. >> jesse referred to him in an autobiography as an accidental non-racist. color blind would be the common term for it now. back then, he was like, no, i don't care. i don't care. as long as you work hard and do what i ask, then i don't care what color you are, what race, doesn't matter. let's go. >> jesse needed that. >> you were playing a little basketball over the weekend in toronto. you played the celebrity tournament. >> we lost to canada. >> but you were great. 11 points at halftime. >> i did all right for an old man who doesn't play much anymore. >> you played ball. >> i did. the older i get, the better i

8:59 am
woods," and won album of the year for "1989," becoming the first woman to women that that category twice. her acceptance speech, one aimed directly, if not mentioned by name, at kanye west, has everyone talking. >> i want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. but if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people side track you, someday when you get where you're going, you're look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. and that will be the greatest feeling in the world. >> friendly reminder, kanye west recently said he should get credit for taylor swift's fame. >> he made her career, as he says.

9:02 am
argument that an amazing number of people passed away. i think there was a, i was disappointed they didn't do more for natalie cole. the segment ended with a clip of her and her dad singing "unforgettable." but her twin sister -- or her sister told the new york post before last night's ceremony, she didn't think it was enough. she said it was bittersweet. family was hoping there would be an actual tribute. she had 21 grammy nominations and won 9 times. first african-american female to win best new artist. we reached out to the grammy producers for comment and didn't hear back yet. >> it was a lot of backlash. a lot of controversy about this, for sure. >> any favorites, tamron? >> you know, the highlight for me was kendrick lamar. music is supposed to not only be, i guess, the soundtrack of our lives, but it's supposed to speak about society. he shut it down.
