7:01 am
and loads of laughter. what happens when two of the funniest people on earth join us in studio 1a? you're about to find out because amy poehler and jim carrey are here, "today," tuesday, october 28th, 2014. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. i'm matt lauer, along with hoda kotb, al roker and josh elliott. >> who? >> hey, now! >> we'll have more on that in a second. savannah continues on maternity leave with baby vale. natalie is on assignment. we have amy poehler and jim carrey. all i'm going to say is last time he was here, i rode him like a pony. enough of that. >> and that wasn't even on the show. >> absolutely. >> your turn, young man.
7:02 am
>> i brought my own saddle. >> good to have you here. >> a man out taking a walk in midtown predawn and sees the lights, next thing you know, here i am. >> good to have you here. let's stop on a tuesday morning with our top story. the mounting questions and concerns over what to do with people returning from the front lines of the fight against ebola. this, in the wake of the controversial quarantine of a nurse in new jersey. we'll talk to that state's governor, chris christie, in an exclusive live interview in a moment. first, national correspondent kate snow has the latest. kate, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. after arriving back in her home state of maine, there's now disagreement about whether or how long the nurse has to remain in isolation in her home in that state. what should happen when health care workers return from africa, after treating ebola patients? should they be quarantined in a hospital if they arrive at a u.s. airport with a fever? she found herself dueling with governor chris christie over this national debate.
7:03 am
>> she comes back to the united states and they treat her as if she's a criminal. >> my job is not to represent her. it's to represent the people of new jersey. >> reporter: hitchcock did register a fever but says she was just flustered. she was released monday after 24 hours symptom free. >> to the extent governor christie made this a political act so that he could show he was in charge in protecting the people of new jersey, i think he picked the wrong individual with kaci hickox. >> no one likes being in the hospital. no one likes being in the hospital. the fact is this woman presented, after directly in contact with folks having ebola. >> reporter: on monday with so many states doing their own thing, the centers for disease cell issued new guidelines, suggesting four categories for people entering the u.s. from ebola outbreak countries, those with high risk would stay home and stay in contact with health
7:04 am
departments. the states are trying to sort all this out by themselves. what took so long? why did the federal government not give anybody guidance? >> the whole evolution of this ebola epidemic in africa and now the importation here is really an evolving, moving target in which you have to rely on new experiences. >> don't take anything off. >> reporter: hospitals across the country, like the mayo clinic, are doing drills, trying to make sure they're ready if someone comes in with ebola. as for u.s. military personnel serving in west africa, the government said monday all soldiers will be quarantined on a military base in italy for 2 21 days before returning home. soldiers will be restricted to a complex with barracks, dining facility and gym. the head of the nih told me it was easier to make a blanket rule for the military because they're used to being on a base or confined to barracks. the bigger challenge has been how to handle civilians. matt, a little bit of good news. the nurse, amber vinson from dallas, treated at emory university in atlanta, is
7:05 am
expected to be released today. >> that is good news. thanks, kate. new jersey's governor chris christie is here with us exclusively. good morning, governor. how are you? >> i'm well, matt. thank you. along comes kaci hickox. she complained loudly about the treatment she received. did you get more than you bargained for with miss hickox? >> matt, i can't imagine that anyone would find it an experience they were looking for, to have to spend three days in a hospital. i understand that. but the fact is, matt, that she presented at the airport as someone who had contact, direct contact with folks infected with the ebola virus and then she became symptomatic. the fact is that person has to go to the hospital, has to be treated. cdc ordered her to be tested for the ebola virus based upon her symptoms. when she was no longer symptomatic and the tests came back negative, she was released to continue her quarantine at home.
7:06 am
>> let me make sure i understand that. was she september back to maine because she no longer had a fever, any symptoms or was she sent back to maine because she went out and hired a talented lawyer like norm siegel and was throat threatening legal action against the state? >> you used the word talented, matt, not me. and no, that's been the policy all along. if she never presented with any symptoms, our policy would have been to send her back to maine and ask her to quarantine at home in maine. it's because she presented with symptoms and was tested, and that testing was ordered with the cdc in conjunction with the state of new jersey. >> the policy remains in effect, right? i want to read to you what the doctor from nih said yesterday. he called the mappedtory quarantine of all health care workers who come in contact with ebola patients in west africa and then return draconian, that you and governor cuomo got it wrong. the doctor said this. quote, christie and cuomo are both really smart guys, yet they've decided to ignore
7:07 am
science, evidence and decades of careful observations made by those brave enough to have gone to africa to assist in the control of these epidemics. how do you respond to that? >> well, i'll respond to it this way, matt. first off, now six other states have joined us as well, both republican and democratic governors, as has the united states military. as has dr. bruce bugler, who is a nobel prize winning physician who says he favors our policy. the fact is that the cdc has been incremental. this newest guidance, from my perspective, is incredibly confusing. by the way, what's the difference when someone is considered to be high risk? you don't want them on public transportation, you don't want them at public gatherings and you want them to work from home. that sounds like quarantine to me, matt and, listen -- >> is it possible that you're on the wrong side of science here but the right side of public opinion? >> no, i'm going to be on the right side of both, ultimately, matt. i understand that the cdc has been behind on this. folks got infected in texas
7:08 am
because they were behind and we're not going to have folks being infected in new jersey and other states in this country. governors ultimately have the responsibility to protect the public health and public safety of the people within their borders when folks come in with this problem. let's be clear, matt. all we're talking about is folks who have been directly in contact, as health care workers, with folks who are actively infected with the virus. not all travelers -- the reporting has been very sloppy on this, matt. >> and yet a lot of people i've talked to, health care experts, say this. the best way to prevent new cases from ebola from coming to the united states is to stop the outbreak in west africa. you start attaching 21 days to the commitment of any health care worker who wants to go there and help the crisis there, isn't that going to have a chilling effect? >> no, it's not, matt. these folks go over there because they want to help and make a difference. and we applaud them. but by the same token, when they're in direct contact with people actively with the ebola
7:09 am
virus, asking them to quarantine at home for 21 days, unless they're symptomatic, i don't think, is draconian and i think the doctor is responding, unfortunately, as are many people from the cdc, in a hyperbolic way because they've been wrong before and now are incrementally taking steps to the policy we put in effect in new jersey and six other states have put in effect and the joint chiefs of staff have put in effect. we're all wrong and they're right, matt? we're trying to be careful here. this is common sense. the members of the american public believe it is common sense and we are not moving an inch. our policy hasn't changed and our policy will not change. >> real, real quickly, all this takes place about a week from the mid term elections. a lot of people would like to infuse this situation with politics. will you say to me right now that there is no political blame to be assessed for what has happened with ebola in this country at this point? >> matt, i'm not here to discuss political blame. and when you look at what has happened here in the different states that have adopted this,
7:10 am
you've had both republican and democratic governors adopting this. governor dayton in minnesota, governor cuomo in new york with me in new jersey, governor scott, a republican in florida. democratic governors in virginia and maryland where i'm sitting this morning. the fact is you've got more democratic governors doing this than republican governors. this is a nonpartisan issue, matt. here is the bottom line as governor. my first responsibility is to protect the public health and safety of the people of new jersey. and i will not submit to any political pressure in doing anything less than i believe is necessary. we're now backed up by the american military and a nobel prize-winning doctor. so, i understand there's all kind of protestations from the cdc but we want stricter things than what they have been willing to impose and now they're incrementally, matt, moving toward our position. what's the difference of telling someone who has been a health care worker at high risk that they can't go in public places, public transportation and we want them to work from home, what's the difference between that and a quarantine?
7:11 am
they don't want to admit that we're right and they were wrong. i'm sorry about that. >> questions that will continue to be asked. governor, i really appreciate your time this morning. thank you so much. >> matt, thank you very much. >> all right. imagine this. imagine knowing your home was going to be destroyed and all you could do was watch it happen. that's what dozens of homeowners in hawaii are going through this morning as the lava flow slowly advances. nbc's hallie jackson has the latest on that. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, hoda. the local elementary school here will be closed indefinitely, starting tomorrow, because it's in the path of this lava flow. as are a number of homes, some of them on the street behind me. officials say they will let the people watch the lava burn their home, if they want, part of what they call the grieving process here. you can hear it burning, crackling. methane explosions on the lava's leading edge, shaking the ground underneath, red hot river wider
7:12 am
than a football field, moving in on the town of pahoa, melting hundreds of yards over the last 24 hours. >> up until now there's always been hope that it would stop, change direction. the minute it affects the first structure or home, this is real. >> reporter: the lees know it's real. their home could be next. where is the lava flow from here? >> right over there. >> reporter: that's where we went. the lava just past the tree line near property that's been in this family five generations. in the backyard, a bulldozer building a berm. what's it for? >> to help maybe divert the lava around and go downhill. >> reporter: you think it will work? >> it might. we're hoping. >> reporter: for weeks this flow has been making its way toward pahoa after a volcanic eruption in june. it crossed a local road and then a cemetery on the edge of town, reality check for people here. some already packing up and
7:13 am
leaving. >> it could eventually get the whole town of pahoa. >> you deal with so much different types of stress, you know, with this whole lava situation, yeah. and, first of all, it's now coming to take your home that you worked so hard for all these years. we don't know what we're going to do but we just take it day by day. >> reporter: day by day and, really, hour by hour at this point. officials say it's tricky to predict when this lava flow, this river of lava might cross the main highway here because it's speeding up and slowing down depending on terrain. people here say they're ready. >> hallie jackson, thank you. matt, you know about that area. >> we have experience with kilauea and her lava flow. back in had 2000 we did the show from that lava flow. we wept out ant out and didrogr and by the time we went back to get our cars and our trucks and the lava flow had cut off the road and we
7:14 am
had to walk an extra mile around to get back to our vehicle. it's very unpredictable. >> then the lava flow stole your cars. >> right. she's a mean volcano, kilauea. as we mentioned, josh elliott is in for natalie this morning. we're happy about that. but you start with troubling news. >> we do. isis has gained access to chemical weapons and is using them against kurdish fighters in syria. u.s. secretary of state john kerry says the reports are now under investigation. meantime, isis on monday released another propaganda video, featuring british hostage john cantley, photographer kidnapped in 2012. in the video, cantley indicates that isis controls large sectors of that border town of kobani. u.s. counterterrorism officials say that assertion is false. and the rob ford era is over in toronto. john it tori, a moderate conservative, was elected as

hinting at his suicide. florida judge ultimately, in fact, declared him dead. last december, he was captured very much alive in a routine traffic stop. take a look at this, pickup truck plows through a neighborhood cavern, all caught on a police dash cam. it happened near cleveland late last week. police just released the video. you can see it there. they say the truck was stolen. officers put down stop sticks in the road that worked to a degree. the suspect ran over them, veering left, taking out the bar. 12 people inside the tavern were hurt, none serious, as is the driver who now faces a lengthy list of charges. and a very costly celebration for a table tennis champion. j.k. zheng pulls off an upset, winning the 2014 men's cup in germany. instead of a conventional celebration or really any celebration whatsoever, he goes
7:17 am
for the big sweeping kick to the advertisement board because something is their fault and into the crowd goes the jersey. none of that apparently was okay. officials would later fine him $45,000, which just so happens to be the same amount he just earned for pulling the upset and winning that championship. >> hello. >> congratulations, question mark. >> $44,000 for taking the shirt o off. $1,000 for wrecking the advertising sign. >> you squeaked a little sports in. there you go. >> i tried my best. >> mr. roker is here. look at all the yellow and red in the middle of the country. >> it is a rough one all along a frontal system that will be bringing temperature changes. meantime it is bringing showers and thunderstorms, especially right now to indianapolis. you can see the rain on the camera. and it's going to finally clear up by the afternoon. high of about 61 degrees. meantime, we have a risk of strong storms as this system

7:21 am
it stayed up several days after people noted it online. i'm not going to ask you to tell us what you think. because i believe 99% of you are going, what are you thinking? you can join the conversation, #orange room. i'll make the case. why don't they just say halloween costumes and lose the plus? adult costumes. why do you have to differentiate in size? we know our size. you can click on it. >> how do they get on the website? >> is this a case of sabotage? did someone do this -- >> no, no, this has happened before, guys. a lot of the retailers will say third party post. walmart has not said they've been hacked, sabotaged, anything like that. if they do, i will update you. right now that's not what's being said. >> fat boy costumes would be good, too. coming up, mile high mystery, where is a father who vanished at a denver stadium during the middle of the game? his family is speaking out.

better things than the pain, stiffness, and joint damage of moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. before you and your rheumatologist decide on a biologic, ask if xeljanz is right for you. xeljanz (tofacitinib) is a small pill, not an injection or infusion, for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well. xeljanz can relieve ra symptoms, and help stop further joint damage. xeljanz can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers have happened in patients taking xeljanz. don't start xeljanz if you have any infection, unless ok with your doctor. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened. your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz and routinely check certain liver tests. tell your doctor if you have been to a region where fungal infections are common, and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take.

8:03 am
from dallas infected after treating thomas eric duncan weeks ago. she is now ebola-free and heading home later today. she will be speaking to reporters. and the centers for disease control monday issuing new guidelines to try and tell the states what to do with medical workers returning to the u.s. from the front lines of ebola in west africa. that move coming after at least seven states had already enacted some kind of quarantine. nurse kaci hickox, who you mentioned was put in quarantine in that tent in new jersey for three days, well, she's now back in her home state of maine this morning, and her lawyer says they're now debating with maine officials about how long she needs to stay isolated at home. she, of course, had complained loudly about being mistreated and said the quarantine was unnecessary, josh. >> to that end, kate, earlier on today, new jersey governor chris christie defended his state's quarantine policy, which goes beyond the guidelines set by the centers for disease control. >> i understand that the cdc is behind on this. folks got infected in texas because they were behind, and we're not going to have folks

easy until he is caught. and josh, in many towns here, they've actually canceled halloween for this week, just too concerned about having kids running around near these woods. >> certainly understandable. kristen dahlgren, thank you for that. and finally, what if you never had to argue again over who gets a window seat on an airplane? a question perhaps no longer rhetorical. this is the new design from the center for process innovation. it envisions, as you can see, a cabin that just has one long window on each side. the remaining walls would then serve as video displays for cameras mounted outside the aircraft. the overall effect, roughly akin to floating on air, which seems a bit redundant, since that's, in fact, what you're doing. i would prefer to just preserve the illusion as we defy physics and gravity and logic. it is now about 8:06 here. let's get another check of the weather with you, al. it's almost like flying in

(vo) theraflu starts to get to work in your body in just 5 minutes. (vo) theraflu breaks you free from your worst cold and flu symptoms. (vo) theraflu. serious power. that's the way i look at life. looking for something better. especially now that i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but wondered if i kept digging, could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve
9:48 am
or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. yoplait light is now better than ever. it still melts in your mouth. with 90 calories. and is now aspartame free. yoplait light. it is so good; it's better than ever. >> announcer: the toyota concert series on "today" brought to you by toyota. >> british singer/songwriter
