the presidential candidates are making their final pitches ahead of tomorrow's democratic caucus in nevada, and the republican primary in south carolina. as willie mentioned, this election has taken another strange twist, with this back and forth between donald trump and the pope. we will talk to mr. trump live in a moment. we want to begin our decision 2016 coverage this morning with nbc national correspondent peter alexander. good morning. >> good morning to you. south carolina, of course, famous for a good spirited debate. the fighting has gone from surprising to surreal. here's where things stand on the republican side. you can see the race is tightening. donald trump, according to the new nbc news/wall street journal poll out this morning, up five points over ted cruz. down to a 16-point advantage he had one month ago. marco rubio and jeb bush in a statistical tie for third. >> reporter: donald trump now diffusing what began as a holy war of words. >> i don't like fighting with
i think he's doing a very good job. the pope is a wonderful guy. >> reporter: the donald versus the pope started hours earlier. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. >> reporter: pope francis after praying on the mexican side of the u.s. border responded by challenging the republican front runner's proposal to build a wall. a person who thinks only about building walls and not bridges, he 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 will have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> reporter: a top trump aide tweeting this picture, showing walls. vatican. >> reporter: trump is also
howard stern interview, in which he said he supported the war in iraq, despite the recent claims that he opposed it. >> are you for invading iraq? >> yeah, i guess so. um, you know, i wish it was -- i wish the first time, it was don't correctly. >> reporter: he tried to clarify his remarks. >> probably the first time anybody asked me that question. by the time the war started, i was against the war. >> reporter: for all the campaign season's nastiness, emotional moments, too. >> i would hope in the lord and in my friends, and now i found it in my presidential candidate that i support. i'd really appreciate one of those hugs you've been talking about. [ applause ] >> reporter: like john kasich, comforting a supporter struggling with hardship and depression. >> a powerful and moving moment there. 24 hours ago. no room for error for these candidates.
stops, including jeb bush, whose mom, barbara bush, 90 years old, will be back on the trail today. back to you. >> peter, thank you so much. donald trump is with us now on the phone. mr. trump, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's see if we can 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. >> here's what you said last night at a cnn town hall when asked by a voter, who didn't like the sentiment, whether you'd be willing to reconsider. we'll roll that tape. >> would you be willing to rethink that? >> a lot of people agree with what i said. i'm not talking about lying. i'm not talking about not lying. >> which is it, mr. trump? it seemed like you backed off night. are you still saying that the
>> i'm not saying anything one way or the other. >> you did. >> 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 de destabilization of the middle east and everything now. >> i'm sorry to interrupt but to this specific issue, there are voters in south carolina that are seizing on this. whether or not you accused the bush administration of lying. >> i think you're aseizing on it. i don't think the voters are seizing on it. i don't know if he lied or not. he could have. maybe he did and maybe he didn't. i guess you'd have to ask him. whatever, the decision to go into the middle east, iraq, was one of the worst decisions in the history of our country. we lost thousands of lives and we have wounded ware your eded warriors who i love all over the place.
iran is taking over iraq. we lost and have been humiliated there. if you go in, you go in to win. but the war in iraq was one of the worst decisions. why he made it, there were 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 that you had the wisdom to know it would be a bad idea to invade iraq. and 2004. last night, buzzfeed 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, is, are you exaggerating war?
the road that put you out there as someone who was against the road, but are you exaggerating how hard you were against it? >> no. 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. you see articles in 2003 -- don't forget, i wasn't a politician. nobody cared about my opinion. that was just a question asked of me. i was a civilian. i was an entrepreneur. >> at the time, did you think it was a good idea? >> to go into the war? >> in 2002. >> it was a disaster. because the question was asked in 2002, long before the war started. by the time the war started, i was against it and immediately after it started and for many years, identify've been against it. i said it'll destabilize the middle east and iran will take over the middle east. that's what happened. >> let's talk about the dust up with pope francis. we heard about what you had to
maybe pope francis didn't say something as initially harsh as you were told. you said yesterday no leader, especially a religious leader, should have a right to question another man's religious and faith. i was struck by that. 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. you have been questioning another person's faith. >> no, i'm not. ted cruz told many lies. he got caught. you'll be reporting on one in a while, what he did with marco rubio, with a false ad he put out. what he did to ben carson in iowa. >> you questioned his faith, whether or not the fact you say he's a liar makes him less of a christian. >> no, i didn't. >> how can he be an evangelical christian when he lies so much and is dishonest. >> i'm not questioning his faith. i say that ted cruz holds up the bible and then lies.
which is a fraud. he did so many things so bad. i've never seen anything like it. marco rubio called him an absolute liar. it. ted cruz lies. everybody knows he lies. it's disgraceful and, yet, he says he's an evangelical christian. that's his -- i'm not -- i'm just saying he says it. >> mr. trump, thank you so much. i think we cut it out -- the cell phone signal cut out but i think we got it. thank you so much. >> thank you, mr. trump. things are getting tighter on the democratic side. look at our new poll. hillary clinton leads bernie sanders nationally. 53%/42%. a month ago, secretary clinton was up 25 points. andrea mitchell is following that race. good morning. >> good morning to you, willie. wb within hours of bernie sanders calling bill clinton's
clinton came out swinging against her rival at the msnbc town hall. >> i don't know where all 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 what the did. it's true. >> reporter: firing back at sanders for saying in 2011 that president obama should face a primary challenger. >> the idea that there can be a primary with different ideas get floated and debated, it's not terrible. >> reporter: and for criticizing bill clinton. >> i happen to think bill president. let's be clear, i happen to think our trade agreements from nafta, from tpp, have been a disaster. >> reporter: many questions focusing on immigration reform. including one woman, a u.s. deported.
>> clearly, those are not the policies that i want to see, and i will change those pollicypolicies. >> how long would it take to change the policies? i've been waiting six years. >> i can't -- we will use our executive office and power as much as we can. >> reporter: later, unprompted, clinton reached out to her. >> i will end the three and ten-year bar provision, so you don't have to face that ever again. >> reporter: both were asked if they'd tackle immigration reform in their first 100 days. >> not a dictator here. it has to do with cooperation from the congress. >> it's at the top of this list. >> reporter: clinton came under fire for not releasing transcripts of her paid speeches. >> i am happy to release anything i have, when everybody else does the same. >> reporter: with exit polls showing young women voting for sanders, he embraced his feminine side. >> i consider myself a strong
in fact, gloria steinem, everybody knows she's one of the leading feminists of america, made me an honorary woman many, many years ago. >> on thursday night, both candidates showed up at a union picket line with labor a key factor in the vote for the caucuses tomorrow. they have one day left before the caucuses. it is a critical test of hillary clinton's campaign. she was once far ahead and now it's neck and neck. >> senator sanders playing to the honorary woman vote in nevada. andrea, thank you. let's bring in chuck mod,todd, moderator of "meet the press" and moderator of last night's town hall. >> let's talk about the town hall and what's happening in the state of nevada. the polling there, i know you said before, polling is unreliable. we don't get a lot of it. 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? >> well, what was fascinating
both of them got booed at different points. it was a ruckus room a little bit. i think it tells you something about what's going on in 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 a week ago here, is big enough to hold for a surge that there's an expectation that sanders supporters are going to flood at the last minute, reregister and get there. >> let's talk about south carolina. february 27th for the democrats to vote there. we have a poll out of south carolina on both sides. where does that shake out? >> look, i think a lot depends on nevada. a sanders win, and i'd argue it's a must-win for sanders, but a sanders win in nevada then allows him to say, see, i can win in a place with a diverse elekctorate electorate.
negative headlines for clinton and it can close the gap in south carolina. a win in nevada would allow him 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 ralservices tomorrow. pete williams is at the court for us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. this will be justice scalia's final return to the supreme court. a building where he was among the longest serving justices in u.s. history. today's ceremony is one he knew well. >> reporter: inside the supreme court's magnificent great hall, justice scalia's casket will lie in repose, an honor last given to former chief justice rehnquist in 2005. back then, justice scalia escorted president and mrs. george w. bush as they paid their respects. today, president and mrs. obama
same for justice scalia. stephen breyer, in the first public appearance of a justice since scalia's death, said friends were sad. >> he was a life force of the court and it'll be a grayer place without him. decent man who has made an enormous impression. >> reporter: tomorrow, the funeral at the basilica of the national shrine of the i immaculate conception, where his son will celebrate mass. vice president biden will attend the funeral but president obama will not, prompting ted cruz to describe mr. obama this way. >> 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 saying the next president should appoint scalia's successor, biden told rachel maddow the senate must act promptly on
get the court back to nine justice is. >> if we don't nominate someone in the next month or so, start the hearing process, they say nothing is going to happen until the next election, it won't be until next june or july before you have a supreme court justice. >> after a private ceremony 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. >> pete williams outside the supreme court, thanks. pope francis' back and forth with donald trump is not the only reason the pope is making news this morning. on his flight back to the vatican, he indicated that contraceptives could be used to prevent the spread of zika, despite the church's long-standing ban. ann thampe thompson is at vatican city with more. >> good morning. as we've seen with his comments on donald trump's border wall, pope francis can be blunt. even his closest observers were surprised by the exception he
opposition to artificial birth control. >> reporter: in pope francis' native latin america, the zika virus carried by mosquitos, is being linked to babies born with abnormally small heads. women are urged to avoid getting pregnant in the region of the world that is enormously catholic. the pope said contraception to prevent zika is the lesser of two evils compared to abortion. he said abortion is a crime, absolute evil, and likened it to what the mafia does. his decision is not the first in church history. in the '60s, the pope allowed nuns in danger of rape to use birth control. in that case as in the zika epidemic now, 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
>> this is not a blanket statement to apply to all forms of contraception at any moment, but this is dealing with a disease that's wreaking havoc in people's lives. >> now, pope francis also talked about the latest gossip here at the vatican concerning a close friendship st. john paul ii had with a female american philosopher. pope francis said friendship with a woman is not a sin. popes can have holy and healthy friendships with women, and popes need their input. without it, he said, men are missing something. >> quite the newsy trip back to the vatican. appreciate it. let's get a first check of the weather from dylan in for al. >> not a week ago, we were talking about record cold. now, we're talking about record warm temperatures across almost the entire country. look at this ridge in the jet stream that's allowing temperatures to warm up. we saw several record highs

also this morning, we're learning more about a terrifying crash caught on camera in hawaii. a helicopter carrying a family of four, plunging into pearl harbor. nbc national correspondent miguel almaguer has more on this one. good morning. >> the national transportation safety board, ntsb, will be on site later today to start their investigation. they already have what could be a critical piece of evidence. video of the last moments the chopper was airborne. >> reporter: the sightseeing helicopter was losing altitude quickly. witnesses say smoke was coming from the tail as it closed in on a crowd gathered along the shore. then it happened. slamming into the water with five people aboard. the chopper began to sink immediately. scott witnessed the crash and sprang into action to help the victims. >> it was sputtering and came down. he put it right off the shore,
as soon as people saw what was happening, they started running. >> reporter: as quickly as the helicopter went down, many plunged into the water. >> i swam in to the aircraft and the kid in the backseat was entangled in the seat belt. >> reporter: some passengers able to swim ashore, but a everyone rushed to the hospital. >> i pray the kid is okay. i guess he's still in critical condition. >> reporter: the navy says the chopper is owned by genesis aviation, registered to jeffrey. this photo taken from his facebook page. the sightseeing company tours pearl harbor, offering stunning views of the u.s.s. arizona memorial, where the aircraft went down 20 feet offshore, directly next to a visitors' center. >> seen the helicopter sputter about 500 feet. the pilot did what i would say was an amazing job. >> reporter: the investigation begun.
camera that everyone was lucky to survive. >> siting privacy concerns, we know one person was listed in critical condition. the other injuries are believed to be minor, considering the force of this crash. we did reach out to the owner of the helicopter company. our calls have not yet been returned. >> that video takes your breath away. thanks so much. there are new develops in apple's fight against the federal government on an order to hack into the phone of a san bernardino shooter. it's something the tech giant has done in the past. >> reporter: federal agents thursday taking evidence from the home of a relative of san bernardino shooter syed farook. >> can i talk to you real quick about the raid this morning? excuse me, can i talk to you? >> reporter: what the feds really want is access inside farook's iphone, sparking a the government. more tech giants are backing apple, including facebook and twitter.
for his leadership. the judge is ordering the company to create new software to unlock farook's phone. >> to deny government access under court order, that creates safe havens for all different kinds of bad guys. >> reporter: major tech companies get thousands of requests from law enforcement data. in many cases, faced with valid subpoenas or search warrants, the companies comply. in a court case last year in new york, prosecutors noted apple has repeatedly assisted law enforcement officers in federal criminal cases by extracting data from passcode-locked iphones. saying apple complied with at least 70 court orders since 2008. for apple, the san bernardino case is very different. apple can extract data from phones with older operating systems. ios 7 and earlier. farook's phone is running on ios
extract data from those devices because they're encrypted. the company would have to build a so-called back door to get inside. steve wozniak says back doors are a bad idea. recognition and value and profits is largely based on an item called trust and trust means you believe somebody. you believe you're buying a phone with encryption. we shouldn't have hidden back doors. >> reporter: apple has another week to respond to the court order in this battle over impressive si privacy and security. joe fryer, nbc news, los angeles. let's turn back to dylan who is in for al. >> we have cool video. fire nato in missouri. the definition is a spinning vortex of flame. it didn't cause any damage, but it was part of a wildfire. sometimes these wildfires are so huge, they create their own wind. it's windy in the area anyway, and it helped to spread the fire.
it's more a brush that caught fire. we are still looking at conditions today that could lead to the spread of wildfires. it's very dry. humidity is around 15%. it's also very windy. look at all these high wind warnings and advisories. 55 million people could see very gusty winds today, perhaps in excess of 65 miles per hour. especially across the northern plains. as we go through the day today, we'll see the winds start to spread into the midwest. we'll see justs s gusts as high as 35 to 45 with isolated higher erer gusts. it creates the conditions for fires to spread. it's ahead of the cold front and behind it, we are looking at gusty conditions. up and down the east coast, not a lot going on. temperatures should be toppi.saturday...partl in the mid 60s. .sunday...mostly the upper 60s with a chance of around .tuesday...rain likely. highs in chance of rain 70 percent. .wednesday...rain around 50. chance of rain 70 percent. .thursday...sunny . highs in the

we're back at 7:43. this morning, hospitals are reporting a dramatic rise in flu cases. >> nbc medical contributor dr. natalie azar is here on what you need to know when it comes to protecting your family. good to see you. >> morning. >> let's take a look at cdc's latest map. we're seeing the flu is starting to pick up. >> yeah. >> how do you account for this? >> it's a little late in the season, generally speaking, but not too late. we always say that the flu season is going to start in the fall and go through may. one thing i want to point out about the map though is that it is last week's map. the cdc comes out with their weekly surveillance toward the late morning. in a couple hours we'll have a new map. importantly, when we reached out to doctors and hospitals across the country, they have valueidated that we are seeing an uptick in

kitchen fixing that can lead to 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.
we're going to put them up here 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
>> you'll eat them still. 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 they go bads 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. plenty 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 pitches increases how much water we drink. >> 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. >> ayeah. >> a little bit of a buzz kill on my cookies but i'll work through it. >> put them on the today.

building bridge it is not a 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.
the pope. >> i don't know that you want to take on the pope. >> if anybody would, he could. >> i feel there are bigger powers that come into play when you're on the pope's bad side. >> it's amazing when you think about this election, you think it can't escalate anymore or go to a different place -- >> nothing is too sacred. >> the pope. it's unbelievable. >> when i heard the comments yesterday, i was like, you've got to be kidding me. >> it's what we say every day. >> i know. >> we get some votes tomorrow in south carolina. it'll be a huge day in the campaign. we'll see if any of this affected donald trump. >> probably not. >> not at all. some incredible video, and kind of a sad story around this. this is a helicopter that crash landed. it was all caught on camera. the helicopter had just taken off outside of pearl harbor in honolulu, near the u.s.s. arizona memorial. it sputtered out of control. it had gotten about 500 feet up into the air or so. the pilot and a family of four on board.
a person is said to be in critical condition. unclear why the helicopter -- what happened on board that it started sputtering. the national transportation safety board is going to be on site today to start the investigation. you can imagine, the family going off to do sightseeing, see beautiful hawaii, and then this happens. so tragic. we hope and pray for the person who is in critical condition, that they come out of it. >> have you done those in hawaii? they'll hover above a waterfall. >> stunning. >> best way to take in the scenery. >> i've never done it but i hope to someday. >> we're thinking about that family today. >> also the pilot being credited for bringing it down into water, off land, where there were people. nearby enough that witnesses and people could get to them and try to help them. >> rescue as quick as possible. on a lighter note, we saw this earlier today. adele and ellen have joined forces. they pulled off this amazing
adele is wearing an ear piece and ellen is feeding her lines. it's hilarious. >> am i seeing wheat grass there? >> yeah, wheat grass. >> take out scissors from your purse. in your purse is scissors. i would like -- and start chopping some. >> can i chop some up? thank you. >> dump out the purse. where is my money? i need to pay for this, right? dump it out on the counter, all of this. let's see what i have here. >> let's see what i have here. >> you have knives and twizzlers. >> what else do i have? >> symone, you're supposed to carry those. >> how do i pay for this?
>> do i pay or not? i'm a celebrity. do i have to pay? >> the accent makes it more funny. >> i'm surprised the people behind the counter -- i would have been like, don't pay. fst it's yours. take it. >> she was gnawing on the wheat grass and when they gave up the gig, she was like, this is awful. another funny clip during "wheel of fortune." sometimes the hardest part is solving the puzzle. they solved it no problem. it's what happens after. it was a pat sajak following up question. >> read it. >> gondola ride through venice. >> yeah. [ applause ] let's check your geography knowledge. what country do you think we're
>> paris. france. >> do we still get it? >> you get the trip but also an atlas. >> that's hard though. granted, venice is probably not the hardest one. i mean, if you are put on the spot like that -- >> you're so caught up in the moment. al said when he was on "wheel of fortune," he was like the epic fail. he was with his mom, the pressure. >> sayhe was throwing curve balls. >> they got the trip. venice, france, is where he'll be visiting. >> or paris. >> we have something we want to try here achlt. apparent think apparently, a scientist created coffee flour. it's made of coffee beans. you add it to your recipes, not to be used as a subty tystitute for flour, of course. just a little bit. apparently, it gives you a little caffeine kick.
>> i don't think so. >> we'll find out. >> doesn't smell like coffee. >> i'll try it. >> i'm always the first to dig? >> go for it. >> thank you. >> my experience, caffeine makes things bitter tasting. we'll see. i'll do it without the sir upyrup. each serving of pancakes has 6 grams. >> don't try it with the syrup. >> not bad. i don't really taste the coffee, to be honest with you. >> i taste bitterness. >> there's a little -- when you breathe out, you can taste -- >> each serving has 145 milligrams of calf fee,caffeine, the equivalent of one cup of coffee. >> you're not a coffee drinker so this could be a substitute if you needed a kick or boost in the morning. >> gives you a little pick me up. >> there are people who like to add a little something to give them the extra boost. it's not commercially available yet. we should point out. it's something still in
let's see how we feel by the end 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

>> we dissect their words so much, but you're going to clue us into their body language. there are some tells there, as well, as to what kind of leader they'd be, right? >> absolutely. we actually will look at body language more often than words. i'm a keynote speaker for big corporations. i'll say, they'll all have to hold hands. the hula hoops are in the middle of their hands. go in a circle, the hula hoops have to make their way. i do this with my body. what do you think the executives do? they climb through the hula hoops. they're in the three inch high heels. it's because of the gesture. they'll pay attention more to the gesture than the words. >> let's start with hillary clinton. play the sound. >> i've always been somebody who believed and raised in my family and faith, and i with my blessings, had an opportunity and obligation to help others. president. >> you might not have seen it. it's a shoulder shrug.
it indicates uncertainty. >> family and my faith. >> watch here. one shrug already. two shrugs here. a third. there we go. the hat trick of shoulder shrugs. it's uncertainty. when you're saying a addydee fi -- difinitive answer, it cancels out your certainty. we don't know what the catalyst is here for hillary, but it'll hurt her message. >> you think voters pick up on the cues subconsciously. >> they do. this i say peanut butter and jelly on my socks, please, your brain says, i don't understand that. >> sign of humility maybe? >> no, it's always uncertainty. in the united states of america, what do you want for lunch? i don't know. she's imploding here. >> let's look at donald trump. of course, again, we heard a lot
you read the body language. >> people are buying it. you know it's happening. >> watch his hands. rewind it. >> uses the hands a lot. >> he does this move a bit. let's rewind and watch donald trump's hands. >> turned out to be a disaster. you know what's happening. >> i always think of the monkey with the tambourine there, the cymbals. i'm not saying it to disrespect donald trump. this move here that he does constantly, remember you wind up the toy and the monkey is like ding, ding? he does the banging of his hands in the air. >> what does it tell you? >> it's connected with people who think outside of the box. creative thinking. that's why you get someone that is from the real estate industry running for president. he'll be on the front lines talking to the people coming into our border. border patrol. he's going to think outside the box. creative thinking. if you want someone that has that strategy with creativity.
>> he's a chopper. >> let's go back to the democrats and look at bernie sanders. you say to keep an eye on his finger. >> when i talk about democratic socialism, i'm not looking at venezuela or cuba. i'm looking at denmark and sweden. you know what goes on in those countries? >> see the wagging of the finger? let's rewind the clip again. he wags his finger a lot. >> i'm looking at cuba, denmark and sweden. you know what goes on? >> wagging the finger, judgment lingers. when we wave our finger, it's judgment wavering. police do thrks onis, on the ground! you may feel judged by him. but is he saying something he has judgment to?
someone could be like, is he the right person for president? >> or reprimanding what he's talking about. >> we don't know what the catalyst is. >> or a big bang. >> have you come to a class at the body institute? speaker. >> we've had you here enough. let's look at marco rubio. facial expression. >> i do. >> you have to clear it up. if you don't, people say, it must be true. he didn't refute it. we saw what he did to dr. carson in iowa, which was wrong. >> here it comes. >> trey gowdy came up with a statement, saying he was no longer endorsing me. >> watch his face. it's disgust. his upper lip coming up, eyes and nose wrinkles. >> we saw what he did to dr. carson. >> he's disgusting. look at the brow. it's like he's dropping a non-verbal f bomb. we don't know what the catalyst is. we can assume, and most people
rumor that's not true that we can verify within minutes? we see this disgust. >> for the photoshoped photo. >> we talked about hillary early. she were doing a shrug. he's congruent. i don't like that it happened and we see concongruency. >> i met joe biden one time and i say, let's throw him back in the mix. he's the guy that keeps it real. >> the way this race is going, he might be in the mix in a couple weeks. always good to see you. thank you so much. coming up, from "america's got talent" to our studio. oz pearlman (baseball on tv in background) with heart failure, danger is always on the rise. symptoms worsen because your heart isn't pumping well.

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 . sfx: cell phone vibrates. yeah?
