7:02 am
making a pitch ahead of tomorrow's democratic caucus and the republican primary in south carolina. and as willie mentioned, this election has taken yet another strange twist with this back and forth between donald trump and the pope. we will talk to mr. trump live in a moment. but we want to begin our coverage this morning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. peter, good morning. >> reporter: hey, savannah, good morning to you. south carolina, of course, famous for a good spirited debate. the fighting has now gone from surprising to surreal. here's where things stand right now in the republican side. you can see the race is tightening. donald trump, according to the new nbc news "wall street journal" poll out just this morning, now up over five points over ted cruz. and marco rubio and jeb bush in a statistical tie for third. donald trump now diffusing what began as a holy war of words. >> i don't like fighting with the pope. and i think he's doing a very good job. the pope is a wonderful guy. >> reporter: the donald versus
7:03 am
the pope started hours earlier. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. >> reporter: pope francis shortly after praying on the mexican side of the u.s. border, responded to a question by challenging the republican front runner's proposal to build a wall. a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, his holiness told reporters, is not christian. trump, arguing the pope would be blessed to have him in the white house. >> if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, which as everyone knows is isis' ultimate trophy, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> reporter: a top trump aide defiantly tweeting this picture, showing vatican city surrounded by walls. >> he's got an awfully big wall at the vatican. >> reporter: trump is also facing new questions over a 2002 howard stern interview in which the billionaire said he
7:04 am
supported the war in iraq, despite recent claims he opposed it. >> are you for invading iraq. >> yeah, i guess so. you know, i wish it was -- i wish the first time it was done correctly. >> reporter: trump tried to clarify his remarks thursday night. >> it was probably the first time anybody asked me that question. when the war started, i was against the war. >> reporter: for all of this campaign season's nastiness, some emotional moments, too. >> i found hope and i found it in the lord and in my friends, and now i've found it in my presidential candidate that i support. and i would really appreciate one of those hugs you have been talking about. >> reporter: like john kasich comforting a supporter, struggling with personal hardship and depression. willie, a powerful and moving moment there, just 24 hours ago. no room for error for these candidates. all of them pulling out the stops, including jeb bush, whose mom, bar rah bush, 90 years old,
7:05 am
will be back on the trail today. >> peter, thank you so much. and donald trump is with us now on the phone. mr. trump, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's clear something up that has become an issue in south carolina. the question is whether or not you said that the bush administration lied to get us into the war in iraq. here is exactly what you said at the debate on saturday night. we will roll the tape. >> they lied. they said there were weapons of mass destruction, there were none. and they knew there were none. >> and here is what you said last night at a cnn town hall when asked by a voter who didn't like that sentiment, whether you would be willing to reconsider. we'll roll that tape. >> would you be willing to rethink that? >> well, a lot of people agree with what i said, and i'm not talking about lying. i'm not talking about that. >> which is it, mr. trump? it seems like you backed off that claim a little bit last night. are you still saying that the bush administration lied to get us into iraq? >> well, i'm not saying anything one way or the other. >> well, you did say that. you did.
7:06 am
>> savannah, i'm saying that as far as i'm concerned, the decision to go into iraq was probably one of the worst decisions ever made in the history of our country. it led to the total destabilization of the militants middle east and everything we have now. >> i'm sorry to interrupt. but to this specific issue, this is what some voters in south carolina are really seizing on. whether or not you accused the bush administration of lying. are you still -- >> i'm not seizing on them. i don't think they're seizing. i don't think the voters are seizing on it. i don't know if he lied or not. he could have lied. maybe he did, maybe he didn't. i guess you would have to ask him. but whatever. the decision to go into the middle east, to go into iraq was one of the worst decisions in the history of our country. we have spent $2 trillion in iraq. we have lost thousands of lives. we've got wounded warriors who i love all over the place. and that was a decision that was made. and right now we have nothing. iran is taking over iraq. we've totally lost. we have been humiliated there. and we should have at least
7:07 am
gone -- if you're going to go in, you go in to win. the war in iraq was one of the worst decisions. why he made it there with no weapons of mass destruction. he said there were weapons of mass destruction. there were no weapons of mass destruction. it's been a horrible decision. maybe the worst decision ever made by the united states. >> mr. trump, it's willie geist. let's take up that question of iraq. you have said as one of the pillars of your foreign policy credentials you had the wisdom to know it was going to be a bad idea to invade iraq. it would be a disaster. you said that in 2003 and 2004. last night, as you heard in the piece there, buzz feed unearthed a clip of you talking to howard stern, september 11th, 2002, where you were asked, should we go into iraq and you said, "yeah, i guess so." i guess my question to you, mr. trump, are you exaggerating how strong you were against the war? i know you have said things down the road that put you out there as someone against the war. but are you exaggerating how
7:08 am
hard you were against it? >> no, it's the first time the question was ever asked of me. that was long before the war started. by the time the war started and you have documentation of this. by the time the war started, i was against it. and you see articles in 2003. don't forget, i wasn't a politician. nobody really cared about my opinion. that was just a question that was asked of me. i was a civilian. i was a -- an entrepreneur. >> but at the time, did you think it was a good idea? >> oh, to go into the war? >> in 2002. >> it was a disaster. to go into the war was a disaster. but the question was asked in 2002. quite a ways in front of the war. long before the war started. by the time the war started, i was against it. and immediately after the war started, for many years i've been against it. i said it will totally destabilize the middle east and iran will take over the middle east. and that's exactly what happened. >> mr. trump, let's talk about this dustup with pope francis. and we've heard what you had to say about that, and you feel like maybe pope francis was not misquoted, but maybe didn't say something as harsh as initially were told.
7:09 am
let me ask you a different question. you said yesterday, no leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man's religion or faith. and i was really struck by that. because over this last week, and even on friday, a week ago, you tweeted about ted cruz. how can ted cruz be an evangelical christian when he lies so much and is so dishonest. so it appears you have been questioning another person's faith. >> no, i'm not. ted cruz told many lies. he just got caught in one. you're going to be reporting on one in a little while, what he did to marco rubio with a false ad he put out. what he did to ben -- look what he did to ben carson in iowa. >> but you did question his faith. whether or not he's a liar makes him less of a christian. you said, how can he be an evangelical christian when he lies so much and is dishonest. >> i'm not questioning his faith. i just said ted cruz holds up the bible and lies. he's lied on many occasions and has been caught on almost all of them. he did on voter violation forms, which is fraud.
7:10 am
he did so many things that are so bad, i've never seen anything like it. marco rubio came out the other day and called him an absolute liar, he's never seen anything like it. and i've never seen a politician do that. ted cruz lies. everybody knows he lies. and it's disgraceful. and yet he goes around and says he's an evangelical christian. that's his -- i'm not -- i'm just saying -- he says it. >> all right, mr. trump. thank you so much. i think we cut out on the cell phone signal at the end there. but i think we got it. thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> thank you, mr. trump. things are getting tighter on the democratic side. take a look at our new nbc "wall street journal" poll. hillary clinton leads bernie sanders nationally, 53-42. but a month ago, secretary clinton was up 25 points. nbc's andrea mitchell is following that race. andrea, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, willie. within an hour, bernie sanders calling some of bill clinton's achievements disastrous. hillary clinton came out swinging against her rival at
7:11 am
the msnbc town hall. >> i don't know where all of this comes from. because maybe it's that senator sanders wasn't really a democrat until he decided to run for president. >> reporter: it was the first time hillary clinton so fiercely attacked bernie sanders for not being a real democrat. >> he doesn't even know -- you know, last year what democratic president did. well, you know, it's true. >> reporter: firing back at sanders for saying in 2011 that president obama should face the primary challenger. >> the idea that there can be a primary with different ideas get floated and debated, i don't think that is terrible. >> reporter: and for criticizing bill clinton. >> i happen to think bill clinton did a pretty good job as president. but let's be clear. i happen to think our trade agreements through nafta have been a disaster. >> reporter: many questions focusing on immigration reform. including one woman, a u.s. citizen, whose husband was deported. >> what would you do to bring my husband home? >> clearly those are not the
7:12 am
policies that i want to see, and i will change those policies. >> how long would it take to change those policies? because i've been waiting six years. >> well, i can't -- you know, we will use our executive office and power as much as we can. >> reporter: later, unprompted, clinton reached out to her. >> and i want to tell you, i will end the three and ten-year bar provision so that you do not have to face that ever again. >> reporter: both were asked if they would tackle immigration reform in their first 100 days. >> not a dictator here. it has to do with a little bit of -- from the congress. >> introduce my priority legislation and this is at the top of the list. >> reporter: and clinton came under fire for not releasing transcripts of her paid speeches. >> i'm happy to release anything i have when everybody else does the same. >> reporter: and with exit polls showing young women voting for sanders, he embraced his feminist side. >> i consider myself a strong feminist. and, in fact, gloria steinem.
7:13 am
everybody knows her as a leading feminist in america, made had he an honorary woman years and years ago. >> reporter: thursday night, both candidates showed up at a union picket line in getting out the vote for the caucuses tomorrow. one day left before the caucuses in a state that is a critical test of hillary clinton's campaign. she was once far ahead here. now it is neck and neck. willie and savannah. >> senator sanders playing the honorary woman vote in nevada. andrea mitchell, thank you. >> let's bring in chuck todd, moderator of "meet the press". good morning. >> we have chuck on a connection to atlanta outside the airport this morning. thanks for stopping to talk to us. let's talk about the town hall last night and the state of nevada, the polling there. i know you said before polling is unreliable, but it looks tight based on what we know. what was your sense of things in the room with secretary clinton and senator sanders last night? >> reporter: well, what was fascinating was -- by the way, both got booed at different points.
7:14 am
it was a very raucous room a little bit. and i think it tells you something about what's going on on the ground in nevada. the time i spent there. it's clear to me that both campaigns agree that sanders has the momentum and the question is, whether clinton's lead, which she had about a week ago here, is big enough to hold for a surge that there's an expectation that a bunch of sanders supporters are going to flood at the last minute, reregister and get there. how many of them show up. >> and now let's talk about south carolina. because it's february 27th the democrats vote there. i know we've got a new poll out of south carolina on both sides. where does that all shake out? >> reporter: well, look, a lot depends on nevada. a sanders win -- and i would argue it's actually a must-win for sanders. a sanders win in nevada then allows him to say, see, i can win in a place where the diverse electorate. i think that suddenly creates yet another week of negative headlines for clinton. and that could close the gap in south carolina. no one expects sanders to be able to win in south carolina.
7:15 am
but a win in nevada probably allows him to get enough momentum to make it a single digit race in south carolina. that's why saturday is so important for both candidates. >> chuck todd on his way home. thank you so much. >> thanks, chuck. it is an emotional day at the supreme court, where the body of justice antonin scalia will lie in repose. a public viewing ahead of funeral services tomorrow. nbc's justice correspondent, pete williams is with us. pete, good morning. >> reporter: willie, good morning. this is justice scalia's final return to the supreme court, a building where he was among the longest-serving justices in u.s. history, and it's a ceremony he knew well. accompanied by justice scalia's former law clerk, supreme court police officers brought the casket inside the court's magnificent great hall, where he will lie in repose all day. an honor last given to former chief justice william rehnquist, in 2005. back then, justice scalia escorted president and mrs. george w. bush as they paid their respects. today, president and mrs. obama
7:16 am
will come to the court to do the same for justice scalia. steven breyer in the first public appearance of a justice since scalia's death said his colleagues are all sad. >> he was a good friend and really a life force at the court. and it's going to be a grayer place without him. >> reporter: then tomorrow, the funeral at the massive basilica of the national shrine of the immaculate conception in washington, where his son, paul, a catholic priest, will celebrate mass. vice president biden will attend the funeral, but president obama will not, prompting ted cruz to describe mr. obama this way. >> a lawless and faithless president. who is eager to travel to cuba but unwilling to show up at the funeral of justice scalia. >> reporter: with republicans biden told rachel mad do yow th senate must act promptly to get back to nine justices. >> if we don't nominate someone
7:17 am
in the next month or so, start the hearing process, and i say nothing is going to happen from the next election, it won't be until next june or july before you have a supreme court justice. >> reporter: after a private ceremony here this morning with a prayer and a reading, the supreme court will be open to the public for those who want to say their final good-byes to antonin scalia. willie, savannah? >> pete williams outside the supreme court this morning. thanks. >> donald trump is not the only reason the pope is making news this morning. on his flight back to the vatican, the pope indicated that contraceptives could be used to prevent the spread of zika, despite the church's long-standing ban. let's go to nbc's anne thompson at vatican city with more. anne, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. as we have seen with his comments, pope francis can be blunt. even his closest observers were surprised by the exception he made yesterday to the church's opposition to artificial birth control.
7:18 am
in pope francis' native latin america, the zika virus, carried by mosquitoes, is wreaking havoc, linked to baebls born with abnormally small heads. public health officials have urged women to avoid getting pregnant in a region of the world that is overwhelmingly catholic. at his in-flight press conference, the pope said contraception to prevent zika is the lesser of two evils, compared to abortion. abortion, he said, is a crime, an absolute evil. and likened it to what the mafia does. while surprising francis decision is not a first in church history. in the '60s, pope paul vi allowed nuns to use birth control. francis said it was a clear exception. that exception has some people in latin america hailing francis as a modern pope who finds solutions. but experts insist, this is not a change in church doctrine. >> this is not a blanket statement to apply to all forms
7:19 am
of contraception at any moment. but this is dealing with a disease that's wreaking havoc in people's lives. >> reporter: now pope francis also talked about the latest gossip here at the vatican concerning a close friendship st. paul john ii had with an american female philosopher. was it a sin? pope francis says friendship with a woman is not a sin. he said popes can have holy and healthy friendships with women. and popes need their input. without it, he said, men are missing something. savannah? >> all right, anne. quite the newsy trip back to the vatican. thank you so much. appreciate it. >> let's get a first check of the weather from dylan in this morning for al. >> hello, good morning, guys. not even a week ago, we were talking about record cold and now record warm temperatures across almost the entire country. look at this ridge in the jet stream allowing temperatures to warm up. we saw several record highs back through the plains, through texas, back through the midwest yesterday. and today we are going to see a few scattered highs across the

7:37 am
to the spread of wildfires. it's very dry. humidity is down around 15%. and it's also very windy. look at all of these high-wind warnings and high-wind advisories. 55 million people could see very gusty winds today. perhaps in excess of 65 miles per hour. especially across the northern plains. so as we go through the day today, we'll see these winds start to spread into the midwest. we'll see gusts as high as 35 to 45. again, with isolated higher gusts. and that combined with temperatures well up into the 60s and 70s does create conditions for fires to spread. it's ahead of this cold front and back behind it where we are looking at very gusty conditions. up and down the east coast, not a lot going on. temperatures should be above average, topping out in the mid some of us as you head out the door and also a light jacket needed as we're only now at 48 degrees in the south bay and peninsula and looking at lower 50s in san francisco and we'll continue to see the clouds and then some rain develop for

7:44 am
cases. there are different indicators the cdc uses to try to determine the severity of the season. while they have some, they don't have all of the indicators. again, the people we reached out to have said they've seen, and the cdc is confirming, we're seeing a range of severity, from mild to severe. importantly, there have been cases, again in the young adults we generally think are the not so vulnerable group, who have gotten severe illness that has required intensive care. i always want to point that out. we know that the most vulnerable groups are the people over the age of 65 and kids under the age of 2, as well as people with chronic illnesses. if you're not vaccinated and otherwise a healthy, middle-aged adult, you could still get a severe illness if you get the flu. >> does that map and the late surge tell us something about this year's flu vaccine? i know this year, it wasn't very effective. >> the major trastrain h1n1 is

covered by this year's vaccine. a lot of people last year were saying, why should i bother getting vaccinated? >> is it too late to get vaccinated now? >> absolutely not. we see flu season go well into early may. it takes about two weeks to develop antibodies after you get vaccinated. really, now that we're seeing -- we're in the early stages of this surge of cases. it is not too late. we recommend vaccinations for evybody over the age of six months. a lot of anti-viral treatment, as well, if you're a candidate for it. speak to your health care provider if you think you're infected. >> good information. dr. azar, thank you so much. >> i got my flu shot from you and feel terrific. >> great. it went so well. just ahead on pop start, adele teams up with ellen to pull off the ultimate hidden camera prank. and photoshop fail. the battle over this image that's raging from the campaign trail to social media.

life. former white house chef, sam kass, says it all starts with how your space is arranged. good to see you, my friend. will you take everything i love out of the pantry and fridge? >> no, but we're going to rearrange a lot of it. >> where do we begin? >> nutrition and diet is the number one cause of preventable disease in our country by a lot. a lot of it starts with how we set our kitchens up. we're trying to eat healthier, doing everything we can, but we're doing battle in our kitchens. we come home and put out our favorite treats on the counter. we end up eating more of this. a good friend of mine has done research that shows if a woman has chips or crackers, they're likely to weigh nine pounds more than average. cereal, 20 pounds more than average. soda, 30 pounds more. it's just out for us to eat. >> we don't have to get rid of it all together, you want to conceal it a little bit? >> i would try to get rid of some of it. the things you really love, we're going to put them up here
8:47 am
on the top shelf, where we can't see them. that means what ends up happening is you're only going to eat them when you really want it. >> work to get it. >> not when you see it. that's step one. you eat what you see. >> by the way, this where everybody leaves them. when i get home from work, i go to the chips and cookies. >> that's step one. you have to get it out of sight. the things you want to eat, we want to put in sight. first thing, take fruit and put it on the counter. the average person who had this on their counter, seven pounds less. >> really? >> yeah. >> the other thing you can do, put out dry fruits and nuts. healthy snacks that you enjoy. your kids will enjoy. you make it so they'll running through the kitchen, instead of seeing the cookie that was just there, they're going to grab raisins, whatever it is. >> you're still having the cookies and chips, just less frequently? >> you'll eat them still.
8:48 am
fine, cookies are great. you just want to only have them occasionally. it's a great way to do it. >> let's move to the fridge, sam. what am i doing wrong in here? >> the fridge is the same issue. we have most of our vegetables and fruits in the bottom. then ty go bad and we waste the food. >> forget they're there. >> bring it out of the shadows. let's put it where we can see it. actually, the evidence shows that you're three times more likely to eat something if it's in eye line. >> okay. >> the staples are easily cut up, fruits and vegetables here. you have avocadoes, which are also a great snack. eggs are important for health. plen of fruit. herbs are also something that will make any dishes. >> i like non-fat greek yogurt, too. put your own fruit in it. >> it's rich and creamy but has no fat. the other great thing to have is water ready available. water pitches increases how much water we drink.
8:49 am
>> what do i have to take out of the fridge? >> the things i look for to take out are things are sugar. one of the top couple ingredients. or lots of words you don't understand. if you don't know what that is, you probably don't want to be eating it. >> sam, real quick, show us a good snack to make as we go to break here so people can make this weekend. it'll be good for them. >> all your vegetables you need something to do with it. hummus is one of the best things to do. olive oil, lemon, garlic. >> right in with the chick peas. >> a quick blend and you're good to go. >> you use the vegetables you have in your eye line in the fridge and dip them? >> exactly right. >> sam kass, great to see you, my friend. >> yeah. >> a little bit of a buzz kill on my cookies but i'll work through it. >> put them on the today. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.

9:02 am
christian. that's the pope responding to trump's proposition for a wall. donald trump arguing the pope would be blessed to have donald trump as president. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, which as everyone knows, is isis' ultimate trophy, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> a top trump aide tweeted a picture showing the vatican city surrounded by walls. saying the pope benefits from having walls around where he lives. why shouldn't america? donald trump said he was at a town hall last night on cnn and other appearances where he said, i don't want to get into this. this is the media, after he heard the comments, saying the media put this on the pope. i like him. walking away from a battle with the pope. >> i don't know that you want to

9:09 am
of the show. >> i don't like maple syrup. i like the aunt jamima. >> my husband is like, it's not good for you. >> neither are the pancakes. >> they say don't use this like regular flour. just add a small amount to the regular flour in the recipe. don't substitute for regular flour. could be dangerous. >> that could be a lot, yeah. >> it is a little bitter. >> i'm into it. >> it's good. >> got a kick. i got a kick. >> do you want to do the weather or no? >> you poured maple syrup on it and ruined it. we have warm temperatures to talk about. all weekend long, especially through the middle of the country with a ridge in the jet stream, high temperatures will be above average, by 15 to 35 degrees above average in some areas. we broke a lot of records yesterday. we'll see a smattering of records broken today. dallas should hit the 70s

9:41 am
increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. yeah?cell phone vibrates.
