became treacherous. with temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, it has all the makings for a dangerous commute this morning. >> and we've seen that already here with really icy roads and sidewalks. while the temperatures are expected to climb throughout the day, with steady rain, the concern now is the ice, but the concern for tonight's rush hour will be a flood watch. >> lots of weather to talk thank you. al? >> minutes ago, we got this video from i-81, north of scranton. icy roads causing a massive pile-up. you can see, in fact, a lot of the folks, including this videographer, ran up and got out of the way on the side of a hill. this trucker, stuck there, trying to make calls. they're clearing things out now, and i'm hearing i-81 north of scranton is open again. we've got a tornado watch down in southern florida right now. this is part of the trailing

rhetoric against ted cruz, threatening to sue him. he's also set his sights on former president george w. bush who shared the stage with his brother jeb bush for the first time in the campaign. we begin with peter alexander, in south carolina this morning. good morning to you. >> savannah, good morning to you. this was, by far, the biggest crowd jeb bush has seen. 3,000 people to hear from his brother, the former president, bush 43. george w. bush calling for vision. in a direct contrast to donald trump, praising his brother as thoughtful, trustworthy and measured. will any of it matter? >> reporter: donald trump in the lead. >> we've got a win on saturday. we've got a win. >> reporter: and on the attack., reignited his feud with ted cruz. >> ted is an unstable guy. i've never, ever met a person that lies more than ted cruz. >> reporter: threatening to sue the canadian-born senator over
>> he doesn't have the right to serve as president or run as president. he was born in canada. i will bring the lawsuit if he doesn't apologize. >> reporter: cruz laughing it off, saying donald has lost it. >> we are not in grade school where you say, liar, liar, pants on fire and not respond to the subject. >> reporter: the front runner also 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 the gop pledge. >> i signed a pledge. but it's a double-edge pledge. as far as i'm concerned, they're in default of their pledge. >> thanks to brother for giving us something to do today, something important. >> reporter: the last republican to hold the oval office, george w. bush, joined brother jeb on the campaign trail for the first time. the former president repeatedly dismissed the party's front runner without calling out donald trump by name. >> in my experience, the
the loudest one in the room. >> reporter: 43 arguing real strength is not empty rhetoric or bluster. >> we don't need someone in the oval office who mirrors and inflames our anger and frustration. we need someone who can fix the problems that cause our 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. it was like, you know, he was the top. >> reporter: jeb had his big brother's back. >> he didn't know 9/11 would happen but he rolled up his sleeves, inspired us and kept us safe. >> our latest surveymonkey, nbc brks krrksbc online poll, shows 56% of republicans nationally believe donald trump will be their party's nominee. that number is up 14 points in the last week. savannah? >> peter alexander, thank you.
moderator of "meet the press." good morning. >> good morning. the >> the road to the nomination goes through south carolina. it has a reputation for being a slugfest and it's not disappointing. what do you make of this latest back and forth between donald trump and ted cruz? trump suggesting he might sue cruz. even dangerling the notion of a third-party run, threatening the rnc. >> he is a little bit. i think what he's trying to do is keep cruz from getting any momentum. look, in south carolina, it appears to be a two-person race. the winner between trump or cruz, assuming they are battling for first, then the winner will have won 2 of the first 3 and will be the front runner and favorite going forward. that's why you see, basically, trump pulling out all the stops and cruz pulling 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
hurting me, that is a way for him to have standing with a lawsuit. by the way, the other part of the south carolina, there's two primaries. the second primary is the battle for third place between rubio and bush right now. >> let's talk about this, chuck. we haven't seen a lot of data or polling from south carolina since the debate on saturday. trump has the double digit lead. cruz in second. all eyes, maybe, on third. is that still where it stands now? >> i think it's where it stands. look, 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 hurt himself. if he did 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 t t predict the demise of donald trump. >> chuck todd, thanks. stick around for your take on the democrats in a moment. speaking of, hillary clinton will deliver a major speech on race in new york city today. bernie sanders heads to south carolina and georgia. for now, all eyes are on the
that's where we find chriskristinen welker welker. >> good morning. our latest nbc news surveymonkey online poll shows clinton maintaining her national lead over sanders, 50% to 40%. the race is tighter in states like nevada. she will be courting african-american voters today with the speech of race. it comes 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: it was this moment that got everyone's attention. >> and the dog, if it's not true, he's going to bark. >> reporter: when she recalled a decades-old political ad that featured a dog that barked when someone lied, arguing the same rules should apply to republicans. >> oh, the great recession was caused by too much regulation. bastion
>> reporter: this as chelsea stumped in ohio and bill clinton in florida. >> the republican party rewarded the tea party. just tell people what they want to hear. it's going on now in our party. >> reporter: sanders brushed aside clintons' criticisms. on monday, he ramped up his outreach to african-americans, a group he struggled to work over. >> it's working people standing up and fighting. what is the civil rights movement about? >> reporter: 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. >> clinton's address on race will take place in harlem. senator sanders will be courting
he'll be introduced at a prayer breakfast today by danny glover, who will also join him at a rally later tonight. >> thanks. chuck is still with us. let's talk about the democrats. nevada's caucus on saturday. caucuses, harder to predict for pollster pollsters. when you look at the race and the body language, who looks confident and who looks nervous? >> the clinton campaign seems nervous and the sanders campaign seems 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. here's why. there is this idea he can't win in states that are more diverse. nevada is baseically 60/40 white to non-white, at least the way the democratic kau kis iscaucus is going to turn out. a narrow loss and the clinton campaign can breathe a sigh of relief, knowing south carolina comes and they're likely to roll there, too. a sanders victory puts more
then the questions are, oh, maybe sanders can win minority votes. 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 hillary clinton is framing this race, with more of a contrast, going right after sanders recently? >> if you listen to bill clinton and chelsea clinton and hillary clinton, they're all trying to make this a referendum on sanders. they know if it's a referendum on hillary clinton, she won't do as well with democratic voters. put the focus on sanders. they think the more attention given to his ideas, his potential tax hikes, lack of foreign policy knowledge, suddenly, it'll give pause to democratic voters and help her. she's always been better when she gets to frame an alternative. that's what they're trying to do now. >> chuck, 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 so
>> they realize that it's a -- that losing agaiai and suddenly you could make an argument that essentially, sanders won the first three contests. the iowa victory, every day that goes by, there's questions about how big was that victory and did she really win, or did she luck out because of the way the counting process is? that's what i mean by that. they're very nervous. the idea of losing back to back. to lose the first state they faced off against each other that isn't an overly white state, that's what makes them so nervous. that's why, if they can win now, they put away a lot of questions with her. >> thanks so much. now to the nation's capital where the debate rages on over who should replace justice antonin scalia. andrea mitchell has more on that looming battle. good morning. >> good morning. the battle to replace antonin scalia is reshaping that 2016 campaign. with the republican presidential candidates taking a hard line
president obama nominates. no matter how moderate. >> repororr: it is the one issue on which all the republican candidates agree. no one nominated by barack obama should be considered for the salespeople court. >> the balance of the constitution is at stake. >> the republicans shouldn't allow it to happen. >> we're one justice away from a radical five-justice, left-wing majority. >> reporter: for ted cruz, it's personal. he clerked for the high court, argued before it and knew scalia well. within hours of the justice's 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. it's pure politics. the supreme court, of all places, should not be tied up in politics. >> reporter: the president in california hosting an asian summit, saying he is not backing down. >> those responsibilities described in the constitution are ironclad.
the constitution doesn't include exceptions for election years or the president's last term in office. >> reporter: 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 didn't have a parenthesis. that's not the wieay our system works. >> the presidede has a working list, including several candidates who have been supported unanimously for lower courts by republicans. if the republicans won't even consider moderate choices, the president could fire up his own democratic base, nominating a minority. >> a lot of political strategy going into this decision.
in other news, pope francis returned to mexico city last night after a day-long trip. thousands of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the pontiff in his white fiat. a touching moment early in the day. pope francis interrupted the event to come down and bless a child in the wheelchair. during prepared remarks, francis offered advice for creating happy families. saying, quote, do not end the day without making peace. >> it's a version of, never go to bed angry, right? >> great advice, actually. let's get the rest of the forecast. >> kids, i'm sorry about last night. anyway, 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 in the southwest, into southern california. we'll look at that more in the

orencia works differently by targeting a source of ra early in the inflammation process. for many, orencia provides long-term relief of ra symptoms. it's helped new ra patients and those not helped enough by other treatments. do not take orencia with another biologic medicine for ra due to an increased risk of serious infection. serious side effects can occur including fatal infections. cases of lymphoma have been reported. tell your doctor if you're prone to or have any infection like an open sore, the flu, or a history of copd, a chronic lung disease. orencia may worsen your copd. if you're not getting the relief you need... ask your doctor about orencia. orencia. see your ra in a different way. it's a taste so bold, yet so smooth, it could only be called, black silk, from folgers. a taste you could enjoy, fresh brewed, or one cup at a time. black silk, from folgers.

nexium. the drug called proton pump inhibitors or ppis are used by 15 million americans to treat gastrointestinal issues. researchers in germany suggest erusing the drugs may increase dementia among the elderly. people 75 years and older 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. saying, patient safety is an important priority and we
are used effectively when taken as the label suggests. 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 flauzabilityflauz plausibility. how do you go from this medicine that affects your stomach to affecting your brain. 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
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 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 ann indication for continuing this medication long term. for some people, it might
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. instagram me. the most popular photos from music's biggest night. we venture to the ends of the earth, searching for the secrets to living longer. we'll show you wha rootmetrics, in the nation's largest independent study, tested wireless performance across the country.

trending today. >> nice. >> we'll start with a health question a lot of people ask. if you're trying to lose weight, which is more important, to go on a diet or to exercise more? a lot of experts stress balancing the two, but g g this, bob harper, famed trainer, says it is not even close. we know him from "the biggest loser." he knows what he's talking about. here's the definitive, straight answer. he said, diet is more important than exercise if you want to lose weight. he said, look, it's 80% your nutrition and 20% fitness. >> yeah. >> don't you feel like when you are really good on your workout regimen regiments, it allows you to open your menu selection? >> when i exercise more, i eat more, 100%. >> trying to make up for it. you worked out so i deserve this. then your deserve starts stacking up.
i think it is. >> if you're just -- if losing weight is all you care about, diet is more important, say the experts. >> great news for people waking up today. it's easier to focus on what you order rather than doubling downn at the gym. >> it comes down to calorie in and calorie out. if you're working out, you're going to lose the calories. but the idea is, if you want to lose weight, not to replenish with the calories. >> 80/20 is a big split. >> according to bob, which we love bob. >> guy is in great shape. >> we've all heard of manspreading. guys take up too much space with sitting with their legs apart. in new york city, there is a campaign called, stop the spread. now, winter spreading. it happens when we take off all the layers of clothes, the coats, hats, gloves, sweaters, and spread them out around us, maybe to the nearby tables and chairs.
driving them nuts, taking up too much room. >> the smaller restaurants, maybe there's a coat rack through everybody has a coat. >> it's frustrating trying to find your coat when it's underneath seven other ones. >> they need better coat racks. >> if everybody puts their coat on one section, the coats all have a seat. >> you're at your apartment, get into a car, uber, ride, get to a bar, restaurant, maybe we overdress. unless you're bar hopping and walking around in the winter, do you need so many layers? >> what if you get stuck? what if you can't get a cab? we're not as manly as you, carson. we're cold. >> here's technology that takes a hands-on approach to cleaning up at work. this video is from nissan. somebody claps, and all the office chairs snap back into place and go back to their desks.

>> gaga's david bowie. it was a technological marvel, the way they made her look like the ziggy stardust moment. it was phenomenal. she danced her way and sang her way through nine songs in 6:30. it was impressive. only she could pull it off. >> what a great musician she is. >> it was like a robotic piano, too. >> contrast, lately. she's gichven up a lot of the costumes. she brought it back in honor. her hair. the moment may be coming back. the lady mullet may make a return. >> tamron, will you do it? >> kakcarson? >> i loved the stripped down version of the duo. to me, this was picture perfect and sounded great. it was a standout moment for me.

88 in l.a. today >> that is your latest weather. savannah? >> al, thanks. now to our special series, living longer, living better. >> we're looking at longevity in island,i iceland. keir simmons traveled to the island to find out what has people living well long into their golden years. >> reporter: just below the arctic circle on the edge of the inhabitable world, iceland has an almost magical feel about it. with one of the most raw and stunning landscapes on the planet, covered with glaciers, volcanoes and geothermal energy. the 300,000 that inhabit this small island nation today are, no doubt, a hardy crew. despite the harsh conditions, the people here have one of the highest life expectancies in the world. at 83 years.
is it the water? the fresh air? the food? some icelanders credit their longevity to bathing in geothermal pools. >> will this make me live longer? >> a lot longer. >> reporter: tough assignment, this is. >> how come people from iceland live longer than everybody else? >> because of the swimming pools. >> reporter: there they be truth to that. meet stephen, who turns 100 years old in august, yet swims here every morning in this outdoor pool he himself built in 1943. i recently spent a day with this young man. >> you do this every day? >> every day. even christmas. >> even christmas day? >> yeah. >> reporter: at 11:00 a.m., it's on to what he calls exercise for old people. where a group of town elders
keep their muscles moving. >> wow. >> reporter: lunch, today we're eating traditional icelandic fare. >> this is sour sheep testicles. [ laughter ]. >> you like this? >> yes. >> reporter: first, some sheep privates. >> will this help me live longer, eating this part of the sheep? >> yeah. >> okay. maybe it's worth it. >> reporter: then some rotten shark. >> that's gisdisgusting. oh, gosh, come on. >> reporter: but the real clue to icelandic longevity may exist in the country's dna. c
collect dna from every person in iceland. >> why do some people live longer in iceland? >> i think it's the environment they live in. we live in unheated houses for 1,100 years and my guess is there was a selection for certain people. >> it's not the food, not the water, it's not the clean air? >> i'm not saying that we shouldn't lead a healthy lifestyle. we in iceland, we behave recklessly like any other nation. i think the reason we live a little bit longer is that we come from a relatively good genetic background. >> i'm going home to watch television, drink beer and eat ice cream. >> if that's what you want to do. >> reporter: while 99-year-old stephen puts a priority on maintaining his health, even he shares that belief. >> stephen? >> yeah? >> what's the secret? >> i don't know. >> you don't know? >> i don't know.

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.
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?
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
that'll also deodorize and desanitize it. >> can i put that in the dishwasher? >> you can. if you're in your bathroom and want tooo 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.
>> 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 saywhat are reforget ingreforwe 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.
>> 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
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, impressive. how hard is that transition? >> doesn't feel hard going in. there are people who would make
