abortion rights protest roe is a motivating factors for voters. it's not just abortion on the ballot you will have the economy, inflation, other factors coming into play. so, yes, this is a critical data point but also, you know, not a straight line from now until november. >> good perspective. hallie jackson there in d.c. thank you. we turn now to house speaker nancy pelosi's controversial and high stakes trip to taiwan wrapping up overnight. she is the highest ranking u.s. official to visit taiwan in 25 years. in that visit, it's met with condemnation and stern warnings from china this morning. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell are with more on that. good morning. >> good morning. well, speaker nancy pelosi had a whirlwind visit in taiwan leaving just a few hours ago after meeting with top officials and human rights advocates her presence stirring up a strong reaction from beijing continuing an historic and controversial trip the speaker meeting with taiwan's democratically elected president.
>> we are grateful for the delegation's visit under such challenging circumstances. >> our delegation came here to send an unequivocal message. america stands with taiwan >> reporter: and in a deliberate contrast to china's harsh practices, nancy pelosi taking a few questions from reporters. >> how do you see how the china welcome you with military milie an exercise and sanctions against taiwan >> i think that whatever china was going to do, they will do in their own good time. it's really important for the message to be clear that in the congress, house and senate democrats and republicans are committed to the security of taiwan in order to have taiwan be able to most effectively defend themselves. >> reporter: from the moment she touched down in her military jet pelosi receiving a big reception from the welcome sign written in
english to crowds along the way as she met with members of parliament. >> we come in friendship. >> reporter: china reacted with fury announcing more live-fire exercises, fighting jets and according to taiwan hitting hair president's office with a cyberattack. that's because china views taiwan as its territory and president xi jinping is trying to cement control with a third term this fall only last week warning president biden in a marathon call that on taiwan those who play with fire will perish from it. the speaker also responding to critics saying that other members of congress, all men, have visited taiwan. >> they made a big fuss because i am speaker, guess. i don't know if that was a reason or excuse because they didn't say anything when the men came >> pelosi has had strong support from an unlikely source. mitch mcconnell. half of the republican senators. today a strong editorial saying,
bravo, nancy pelosi, from rupert murdoch's "new york post." she has left taiwan, the confrontation with china may be beginning. beijing saying they will step up military drills around taiwan starting tomorrow. >> andrea mitchell, thank you. we are learning more this morning about the u.s. drone strike in afghanistan's capital that killed the leader of al qaeda. a mission while successful is fueling new concern over that country's ability to avoid becoming a safe haven for terrorists nearly a year after the u.s. withdrawal. peter alexander has that story peter, good morning. >> reporter: the death of ayman al zawahiri marked a major victory for president biden but it's sparking new questions about whether his decision to withdraw american troops from afghanistan created a safe haven for terrorists u.s. officials say it left pakistan for afghanistan's capital city months after the
americans departed, essentially hiding there in plain sight. this morning our first look at the apartment balcony where an unmanned u.s. drone killed al qaeda leader ayman al zawahiri these photos taken after last week's streak where zawahiri was hit with a pair of hellfire missiles president biden briefed on the cia operation in early july when he was shown a model of the safe house before giving the green light last week. >> if you are a threat to our people, the united states will find you and take you out. >> reporter: still the fact that zawahiri was living with his family in an upscale neighborhood in the heart of kabul and the taliban knew it is a clear indication the taliban was deifying its agreement with the u.s. not to harbor terrorists including al qaeda. >> we have made it clear to the taliban that we know what they did and we know who they harbored and know some of the steps they tried to take after
the strike to cover up the evidence of it. >> reporter: the white house has not said how it might hold the taliban accountable. but republicans while prizing the successful operation are fiercely criticizing the administration for the vacuum created by last years withdrawal of american troops from afghanistan. >> that precipitous decision to withdraw a year ago produced the return of the conditions that were there before 9/11. >> reporter: president biden's national security advisor pushed back when pressed by savannah yesterday. >> does this signal to you that afghanistan has once again become a safe harbor for terrorists >> well, i think it's strange to call it a safe harbor when we just took out the leader of al qaeda sitting on his balcony. >> brett eagle son lost his father on 9/11 while zawahiri's death brings some relief, he says he fears it won't stop al qaeda from future attacks.
>> we can't continue in this game of tit-for-tat. another leader will rise up, somebody that could be potentially more dangerous. >> reporter: one of the president's top national security advisors tells me that there are still some al qaeda fighters in afghanistan but emphasizes it that the group has spread beyond that regional and the u.s. is focused on counterterrorism threats, too, no matter where they come from. >> thank you. much more to get to as we welcome in jacob soboroff. >> good to see you. good morning. you talked about it at the top of the show. a sad day for so many baseball fans waking up to the news of vin scully's passing. he was an icon of the game and an artful storyteller, a career highlighted by 67 seasons as the voice of the los angeles dodgers. nbc's miguel almaguer is at dodger stadium with a look back and the tributes pouring in. >> reporter: good morning.

a number easy for people to remember is a third or half of your body weight in ounces is kind of the ballpark but if you are sweating and exercising you need to drink more some people need less. >> can i ask a basic thing if your urine is clear, it means you are hydrated >> if it's super, super orange, it's not good, really bright yellow, it could indicate that you are dehydrated but it's not the best indicator. don't rely on just that. >> let's talk about foods. i never imagine eating oatmeal would keep my hydrated. >> this is amazing when you consume oats they expand and they absorb the milk or water that they are being cooked in. they are actually really hydrating. you could do the overnight oats that are cold. we added some fruit here these berries are also very hydrating. >> okay. oatmeal is the way to go i would think is it any liquid
good you have milk on the list. >> any liquid is good. believe it or not, scientists have studied if milk is a better hydrator than water and numerous studies -- i didn't really actually know this so my son is a runner and they encourage the boys to drink chocolate milk or milk after a run. i thought that was interesting think about it if you just drink water there is not much to absorb so you kind of pee it out quickly, right milk has protein, salt, sugar. it stays with you and you absorb it more slowly it's an amazing hydrator. >> i know that fruits seemed to be packed with water, like watermelon and berries and stuff. >> yes here we have a smoothie. water gets boring, right you want to hydrate, do it with some good stuff. you have yogurt which can be slightly hydrating obviously, most fruits are hydrating. strawberries and berries have
some of the most water content of course, watermelon. to me it's like water that looks pink, right? so much water in watermelon. >> how many servings should you have >> for a lot of people it's not a meal substitute, but you could have as many as you want >> okay. so veggies in the hydration department, what do you have >> if you want to do a smoothie that's not with vegetables and yogurt, all lettuce contains 94% water. really, really, really good in water content. bell peppers, tomatoes, celery, huge water content summer salads and making fruit smoothies is amazing for hydration. finally -- >> yeah, tea >> we put this out here because a lot of people are concerned maybe about caffeine, right? and they think, well, if i drink coffee i am going to urinate a lot, it's a diuretic the truth is, we have seen a lot of these
i am a doctor. okay i could say it so we have a decaffeinated tea here love tea you can also drink coffee. it has a ton of water. don't overdo, like, a lot of, you know, shots of espresso. that is a lot of caffeine and could be a little bit of a diuretic drink a normal amount of coffee a day and you won't get dehydrated to those people with ventis and stuff like that, enjoy. >> all right dr. azar, thank you. this big group came out. the legacy 2022 of dance [ cheers and applause >> they are here from richmond, virginia we wish you the best of luck a lot more ahead in the third and fourth hours, including jenna and i setting sail we have a surprise voyage, competitive around new york harbor thank you so much.
