that morning commute, but in other spots as you can see it's the rain that could be a problem. all of it part of a storm system that spawned tornadoes in the south and east. the national weather service confirming one of those tornadoes touching down near the rural town of century, florida, 45 mieps st 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. strong storms also blew through parts of central louisiana tearing up trees and power lines, high wind gusts causing the roof of this pizza hut to collapse. >> i seen it falling on my car and my car was shaking and my window busted. like i seen it like coming at me. it's scary. >> reporter: people across mississippi rocked by relentless twisters. >> this is 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 and hoping we were just going to be all right. >> reporter: in the northeast a plane headed from the balmy dominican republic to new york city had to be diverted to a snowy manchester, new hampshire because runways at jfk were evenly worse. >> we did, left holding at kennedy and came 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 and with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark it has all the makings for a dangerous commute this morning. and that's what we're dealing with here in the washington area. the concern this morning roads and sidewalks being really icy, but as temperatures continue to climb and this rain keeps on falling the real issue for the
evening rush hour commute will be a flood watch. >> that's a lot of weather to talk about. hallie. thank you. >> mr. roker is here track tg all. >> that's right. in fact, minutes ago we got this new video in from -- on i-81 north of scranton, icy roads causing a massive pile up and you can see, in fact, a lot of the folks having this videographer simon brewer ran up and got owl of the way up on a side of a hill, this trucker stuck there, they are just now clearing things out and i'm hearing i-81 north of scranton is open again. we have a tornado watch down in southern florida, this is part of that trailing front that hallie was talking about. look at how far it arcs into the northeast, cleveland, buffalo looking at snow. here is the problem, advisories and wind warnings. 50 million people at risk from north carolina to maine. temperatures buffalo 28, syracuse 34, new york city 54, 56 in boston.
so heavy rain pushes up by late this afternoon, that's where we will have the problems with flooding. it gets out of here by wednesday. so rainfall amounts we're looking some areas picking up upwards of an inch to 2 inches in about a six-hour period, that's going to make for some flooding and we have lake-effect snow from erie all the way up to watertown, another 8 to 12 inches of snow there. we have a lot going on. we have winter storm warnings, we've got flood watches and warnings. so it's going to finally calm down by tomorrow. >> all right. al, thanks very much. let's turn to politics and of course less than a week until south carolina's republican primary donald trump ratcheting up the rhetoric against ted cruz, even threatening to sue him. he has also set his sights on former president george w. bush who shared the stage with his brother jeb for the first time in this campaign. we have the race covered. we begin with nbc national correspondent peter alexander he is in south carolina this morning. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning from south carolina. this was by far the biggest crowd that jeb bush has seen all
campaign. 3,000 people in attendance to hear from his brother, the former president, george w. bush calling for tolerance and vision and in a direct contrast to donald trump praising his brother for being thoughtful, trustworthy and measured. the question this morning, will it matter? donald trump in the lead. >> we've got to win on saturday. we've got to win. >> reporter: and on the attack. reigniting his feud with rival ted cruz. >> i think ted is a very unstable guy. i have 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 even have the right to serve as president or even run as president. he was born in canada. i will bring that lawsuit if he dunned apologize. >> reporter: cruz laughing it off saying trump has lost it. >> this is the most rattled i have seen donald, this press conference today. we are not in great school where you just get to say liar, liar pants on fire and not respond to the substance. >> reporter: the front runner 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 that gop pledge. >> i signed a pledge, but it's a double-edged pledge and as far as i'm concerned they are in default of their pledge. >> thanks to brother for giving us something to do today, something important. >> reporter: meanwhile the last republican to hold the oval office, george w. bush joined brother jeb on the campaign trail for the first time. he repeated dismissed the front runner without ever calling out donald trump by name. >> and 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. >> we do not need someone in the oval office who mirrors and i'm flames our anger and frustration. we need someone who can fix the problems that cause their anger and frustration and that's jeb bush. >> reporter: hours before trump
attacked w. over the iraq war and 9/11. >> the world trade center came down during his reign. that was, you know, it's like he was the top. >> reporter: but jeb had his big brother's back. >> he didn't know that 9/11 was going to happen but he rolled up his sleeves and he inspired us and he kept us safe. >> reporter: new this morning our latest survey monkey nbc news online polls shows 56% of republicans nationally now believe that donald trump will be their party's nominee. that number is up 14 points in just the last week. savannah. >> all right. peter alexander, thank you. let's bring in chuck todd nbc's political director moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning into the road to the nomination goes through south carolina and it has a well earned reputation for being a slugfest and it is not disappointing. what do you make of this latest back and forth between donald trump and ted cruz? trump suggesting he might sue cruz and even dangling that
notion of a third party run kind of threatening the rnc. >> yeah, he is a little bit and i think what he's trying to do is to keep cruz from getting any momentum. look, south carolina appears to be a two-person race and the winner between trump or cruz assuming they are battling for first, well, then the winner will have won two of the first three and will be the front runner and the favorite going forward. that's why you see basically trump trying to pull out all the stops and cruz trying to pull 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 actually a way for him to have standing with a lawsuit. by the way, the other party, south carolina, there's two primaries, the second primary is the battle for third place right now between rubio and bush. >> let's talk about this, we haven't seen a lot of data or polling from south carolina since the debate on saturday, trump has got that double digit
lead, cruz in second, all eyes may be on third. is that still where it stands right now? >> i think where it stands. 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 heard himself, but if he hurt himself 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. >> we will get your take on the democrats in just a moment. speaking of, hillary clinton will deliver a major speech on race in new york city today while bernie sanders heads to south carolina and georgia, but for now all eyes are on the next caucus in nevada and that's where we find kristen welker. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. according tour latest nbc news survey monkey online poll secretary clinton is maintaining her national lead 50 to 40%, but it gets a lot closer in the states like here in nevada. today she will be courting african-american voters with that big speech on race 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: but it was this moment that got everyone a attention. >> and the dog if it's not true he's going to bark. >> reporter: when she recalled a decades old political ad featuring a dog that barked when someone lied arguing the same rule should apply to reaps. >> like, oh, you know, the great recession was caused by too much regulation. [ barking ] >> reporter: this as her family fanned out across other key states monday. chelsea stumpg in ohio, bill clinton in florida where he seemed to link sanders supporters to the tea party. >> the republican party rewarded the tea party. tell people what they want to hear. that's going on now in our party. >> reporter: sanders has brushed aside the clintons' criticism
and in michigan he ratcheted up his outreach to african-americans. >> it's working people standing up and fighting back. what do you think -- what was the civil rights movement about? >> reporter: and 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. >> reporter: secretary clinton's address on race dubbed breaking down barriers will take place in harlem a little bit later on today. meanwhile senator sanders will also be courting black voters, he will attend a prayer breakfast in columbia, south carolina, and then he will be joined by actor danny glover in atlanta tonight. >> all right. kristen welker, thanks. chuck still with us. let's talk about the democrats. nevada's caucus on saturday, caucuses even harder to predict for pollsters but when you look at thet the body language who looked confident, who looks nervous?
>> i can tell you this the clinton campaign seems nervous, the sanders campaign seems very 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 and here is why. there is this idea that he can't win in states that are more diverse. nevada is basically 60/40 white to nonwhite at least the way this democratic caucus is going to turn out. a narrow loss and the clinton campaign can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that south carolina is coming a week later and they are likely to roll there, too. a loss here, a sanders victory here, suddenly puts more pressure on clinton and then the questions are, oh, well maybe sanders can win minority votes and then the pressure on her to win south carolina is as great as it's been in any state so far. >> chuck, do you see a shift in the way that hillary clinton is framing this race with more of a contrast going right after sanders recently? >> i do. if you listen to bill clinton and listen to chelsea clinton and hillary clinton they are all
doing one thing, they're trying to make this a referendum on sanders. i think they know right now that if it's a referendum on hillary clinton she's not going to do as well with democratic voters, but put the focus on sanders, they think the more attention that's given to his ideas to his potential tax hikes, to his lack of foreign policy knowledge, then suddenly that will give pause to some democratic voters and help her. look, she has always been better when she gets to frame an alternative and that's what they're trying to do right now. >> just 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 too much seem in nevada? >> they realize losing again suddenly you could make an argument that essentially sanders won the first three contests that iowa victory every day that goes by there's questions about how -- how big was that victory and did she really win or did she sort of luck out because of the way the counting process is. look, that's what i mean by that. they're very nervous.
the idea of losing back to back to lose the first state that they face off against each other that isn't an overly white state, that's what makes them so nervous and that's why if they can win now they put away a lot of questions about her. >> chuck todd, thanks so much. >> now to our nation's capital where the heated debate rages on over who should replace supreme court justice antonin scalia. andrea mitchell has more on that looming battle. andrea, good morning. >> good morning, savannah. the battle to replace anthony scalia is reshaping that 2016 campaign with the republican presidential candidates taking a hard line against confirming anyone that president obama nominates. 3 f2 suprema.
mayoría radical en la corte. >> reporter: for ted cruz it's personal, he clerked for the high courts, has argued before it and knew scalia well. within hours of the justices 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, pure politics and the supreme court of all places should not be tied up in politics. >> the president in california hosting an asian summit signaling through aids he is not backing down. >> those responsibilities described in the constitution are ironclad, there are no caveats, the constitution does not include exemptions for election years or for the president's last term in office. >> and hillary clinton weighing in unleashing a flurry of tweets overnight aimed at 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 did not have a parentheses. the president nominates, parentheses, except in an election year. that's not the way our system works. >> the president has a working list including several candidates who have been supported unanimously for lower courts by republicans but if the republicans refuse to even consider moderate choices the president could then decide to fire up his own democratic base nominating a minority candidate or another woman, a liberal and in a deliberate contrast to the majority of republicans who are opposing this in the senate. >> a lot of political strategy going into this decision. andrea, thank you very much. in other news pope francis returned to mexico city after a day long trip to the southern state of chiapas. thousands lined the streets to catch a glimpse. pope francis interrupted the event to come down from the alter to bless a child into the wheelchair.
during prepared remarks princess offered advice for creating happy families saying, quote, do not end the day without making peace. >> that's kind of the version of never go to bed angry, right? >> that's great advice, actually. >> let's get the rest of why you are forecast. >> kids, i'm sorry about last night, okay? anyway, let's show you what's going on. 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 into southern california. we will look at at that in more detail in the next half hour. we will get to your local forecast in the next 50 seconds. don't you want that kind of brain? a degree is a degree. you're gonna want someone like me.

regularly taking the medications had a 44% increased chance of dementia. >> there are patients who are kept on this indefinitely. what we may see is a trend more for use in the short term when necessary and stopping afterwards. >> reporter: in a statement to nbc news, two of the drug makers stood behind their products. astrazeneca saying, patient safety is an important priority and we believe all of our medications are used effectively when taken as the label suggests. and p&g says it is important to read and follow all label directions. dr. azar is an nbc medical news contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> 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
plausibility. how do you go from this medicine that affects your stomach to affecting your brain. what we know, they can cross the blood/brain barriers. 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. they saw a correlation between 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 medication 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, where lifestyle changes don't make a difference. such as losing weight and not smoking and elevating the bed. it's something to keep in mind. >> dr. azar, thank you so much, as always. coming up, you've heard of the clapper. now, imagine the clapper for your office. all the chairs, with the clap of a hand.

it was me, candice and -- candace and andrea. we looked at the screen on the couch and went, oh, my, we're back on this couch, in this set, doing this again. >> everybody is talking about the couch being smaller. >> it's smaller. >> we got bigger. >> we understand. >> we never left each other. bob, jeff, the cast. this feels like, you know, we've been here. we never left. >> everybody looks amazing. >> they all look the same. even the couch looks good. >> the kids have grown up a bit. >> we'll show you more of his exclusive visit with the cast next week. do you ever clean your dishwasher or your toothbrush holder? apparently, there are all kinds of things in your house we should be cleaning that are extremely germy. elizabeth will tell us what to do and how to do it. first, this is "today" on nbc.
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 light switches. 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. >> you use that much baking 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. if you're in your bathroom and want to do it, everything is 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? >> as needed. 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 swhat are reforget irefowe
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? >> it'll aerate them. 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. first, this is "today" on nbc.
we're back at 8:44. with the new film "race," it tells the inspiring story of jesse owens and his astonishing four gold medal wins at the berlin olympics. >> the relationship between the 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 out before it explodes into 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. for whatever reason, even trying 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 cshows 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 outrageous, sort of extroverted racism at the time. it was 1936. in the states, and worst situation going on in berlin, 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 was, is the statement. >> is it fun to be on the court though? >> it was fun. to have refs and mess around. kevin hart did a nice job for us as our coach. saturday was amazing. saturday was the best. the dunk contest, the three-point contest. >> you got to see that?
>> i had front row seats that the 14-year-old me would be going nuts over. >> those were great when we were growing up, dominique and jordan. then they were bad for a while. then you saw that the dunk contest is amazing again. >> it was up there with the '88. even the three-point contest. down between steph curry and klay thompson. the '88 in chicago was the all-time greatest. two nights ago was one for the books. >> have to ask, how is the little one? 22 months now, right? >> yeah. >> what's he doing? >> a lot of boom bops. loves the drums. he loves hoops. took him to a game, saw the clippers in l.a. recently. you know, and beyonce. it's like elmo, nemo and beyonce, his three favorite things. >> her fans start younger every year. >> they do. he may have come out of the womb that way. >> obviousl liobviously, "all t
ladies," one of his favorites. >> yeah. >> we were talking about olivia's series. >> unbelievable. >> the juggling, the parent and the work, how are you dealing with that? >> family helps. both the families we're born into and the ones we surround ourselves with. everybody is excited to see him. >> need that. >> it's great. >> are you wishing you were on "snl" just for the political campaign? it's so rich. so much good stuff. >> yeah, i mean, it's fun to watch, as a fan. you start out as a fan. growing up with it and now, i mean -- >> you could bring biden back. >> if biden brought his own biden back -- >> were you hoping he'd get in there and run? >> for no other reason than, as an american, to have more time with him in television and interviews. selfishly, yes, i met him over the summer and i was like, sir, you don't have to tell everybody else -- this is before he
announced -- you can just tell me. my career is in the palm of your hands. >> hey, you know, that's right, i do. exactly as outgoing and genuine as you'd expect, i guess, from the vp. >> jason, thank you so much. good to catch up with you. >> nice to see you guys. >> "race" is a great film. opens nationwide this friday. up next, can fondue really be a model's go-to? we'll find out from roby robyn lawley, heating up the kitchen. first, this is

>> 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. >> the song is called "famous." i love it, maybe she was talking about something else. he has not responded to this. the last tweet said, i'm in a positive space.

"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. he had a total of five grammys, including rap album. he was just the -- the medley was incredible. he's a poet, an artist.
we have a clip. ♪ everything i know, every time they hit me ♪ >> i think it was salon.com that said kendrick left the grammys in ashes. it plays into your favorite moment. there was a lot of concern that hip hop would not be represented. in a big way, your favorite moment, it came up again. >> you had it in this, hip hop and broadway, right on the stage at the grammys. the musical "hamilton," the run away, explosive hit on broadway. they performed live from their theater on stage in new york city. a beautiful performance that the world got to see what people coming to broadway have been seeing for the last year. moments later, "hamilton" won best musical theater album. of course, rapped free style his acceptance speech. >> right hand man, the hispanic, the best idea goes in the pot.
