>> i think "can't feel my face" the weekend. so many hits. >> i was going to said weekend. >> i'm going to go with "uptown funk." that song is incredible. >> i just feel like "the weekend" is new and different. >> what's the criteria? is it the most reesenent our mind or the best? >> i think that's the best. >> the best. >> the arrangement of "uptown funk," that the was killer. >> i don't know how you pick with that. >> how about weekend. >> sompingt year nominations. >> "all right" kendrick lamar.

color" by alabama shake, to "pimp a butterfly" and "traveler" by chris stapleton, "1989" by taylor swift and kind of hard to beat that and "beauty weekend. >> got to win something. >> her album though, i have to say from top to bottom. >> every single one. >> you don't have to skip a song and you don't see that often. we're so conditioned. year. >> sometimes they go darkiors. shake? >> someone not on every say. >> alabama shake would be that? >> or chris stapleton, cleaned up at the cmas. >> and clearly his star is beginning to rise right now. awards show, by the way, on february 15th. >> when you go to itunes and download all of it. >> if you haven't already got these songs. >> and important to point out, if you had the reaction i did which said "hello," adele.
year's grammys. >> next year will be the year of adele. >> she will sweep it clean. >> came out two months after the deadline. >> and let's talk a little politics here and national security and everything else president obama addressed last night in primetime. he made an address from the oval office, only third time he's done that as p.this in the wake of last week's mass shooting in sbeerndio and a few weeks after paris. country. >> this was an act of terrorism designed to kill innocent people. now, here at home we have to work together to address the challenge. there are several steps that congress should take right away. to begin with, congress should act to make sure no one on a no fly list is able to buy a gun. what could possibly be the argument for allowing a terror
it's a matter of national security? >> he began his speech by laying out what his plan to defeat isis is because the criticism of shim there is no plan or if there is one it's not working so he went point by point. obviously not going to satisfy everyone but he wanted to explain he says that there is a plan in place and that he believes at least it's working and then as you saw there he wanted to detail a couple of things that could be done in this country to shop mass shootings and stop terrorism here. >> didn't announce a new plan but did to your plan also mention intensifying was already in pce and that's been a part of some of the response from the gop regarding if this strategy is not working what else can be done and the president's i guess improvement of the plan is the strikes and what's happening? >> certainly a lot of people this morning, the gop candidates, saying, you know, we need to hear more than just tough words. i mean what, realtiy is taking place here? donald trump, if you were watching any of his twitter feed
the entire speech saying is that all there is? we need a new president, fast. ted cruz tweeting if i'm elected department i'll direct the department of defense to destroy isis and marco rubio told fox news people are scared not just because of the attacks but because of the growing sense that we have a president completely overwhelmed by them. i think overall though people listening to this speech just felt like obviously a speech isn't going to do it, you know. you need to have more than, that and i think, you know, even though there's an action plan in place a lot of people are saying that's been in place so what more is happening? >> and they also expect when you take to the oval office which is a huge deal that there will be something new introduced or something monumental, sort of a laying out of the status quo for >> interesting. >> also interesting, the cover of the "new york times," the editorial page, anyway for the first time since 1920 "the times" focused on the call for
country, so in part they put it this way. it is a moral outrage and a national disgrace that people can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill with brutal speed and efficiency. opponents of gun control are saying that determined killers obtained weapons, illegally in places like france, england and norway that have strict gun laws. yes, they did, but at least those countries are trying. the united states is not. and this morning "daily news" printed a cover he have we cynicism, you might say, but by the numbers this is an interesting eric erickson, he is a conservative blogger. >> right. >> red state. we're showing you what he did. he actually took the editorial and fired his weapon, and you can see the bullet holes in the paper and he called on his supporters, his readers of "red state" to do the very same. that one response to the "times" editorial and there is it is. following sandy hook by the numbers, that happened in tweefshlgs okay.
apparently the record was broken for firearm background checks. that's the first stable in the purchase, of course, for a firearm. that is the record that still stands. a similar thing happened after san bernardino, so what they are saying here by the numbers is that after these incidents, yes, you have part of the country who has the gun debate and have others who feel the response is to arm up. >> right. >> and the thing that stephanie gosk went to a gun shop near where the san bernardino massacre happened and the guy was like basically, the manufacturers or whatever are going to be happy with his sales because his store was pretty much sold out. one in three americans already own guns, and they are somewhere around 310 million guns i think, states. >> yeah. >> it's interesting to see after an incident like san bernardino, people have different points of view on it. for some people it's terrorism
control and for some people the answer is mental health. the answer is probably a combination of all things. people go to their corner and you are going to arm up and feel a sense that isis is coming for you. >> and some of the numbers though with the gun purchases. people fearing that perhaps because there may be some legislation there they better buy everything now before the laws change. >> load up, literally. you know what's so interesting and this is a stat that i feel is ignored so often is that even members of the nra when they are polled would like to see what is often referred to as common sense gun reform, some kind of tightening of background checks. that is poll that came out after new town, and it's been cited as well, so when people instantly assume that if you're a member of the nra that you're
that's not true according to the polls. >> right. now that maybe true to the case of politicians who often pander on both sides to what they think constituents want to hear. >> yes. >> but the polling shows there is an appetite even for those who are members of the nra to make some common sense changes. >> i think when you take a look at some of the weapons in this case that were used, assault rifles and you think about, you know, secondality amendment was at a time when people were using very slow gunpowder guns, i mean, regular guns. we're not talking assault rifles, it's a very different kind of gun that we're dealing with these days so people often ask that question like why are we -- why do you need to arm yourself with the teeth with those kinds of weapons necessarily? >> because they would say it's their constitutional trying do so. >> but others who say the second amendment was applying to militias, that the whole gamut of the conversation is not applicable to your point about
of protection of the second amendment. >> the yeah. >> all right. let's head over to dylan who is in this morning with al with a look at weather. hey, dylan. >> good morning, guys. we've got a classic el nino setup. storm after storm coming in off of the pacific ocean here and a jet stream way high up in the atmosphere running 200 miles per hour and the storms get caught up and come right onshore and every single day we'll see some very heavy rain somewhere in the pacific north west. today it's mainly across the west coast of oregon and tomorrow it moves up into washington. 5 to 9 inches of rain possible with very >> jeremy: good morning. another mild day with >> good morning. another mild day with a mix of clouds and sunshine. very little wind out there as well. temps between 53 and 58. boston, 54. south coast middle numbers. cooler tomorrow, with temperatures only in the lower 40s. boston tomorrow, 42, and plymouth, 45. and that's where we should be
