7:01 am
through florida's skies. the big mystery this morning. calls pouring in. what lit up the night sky? and they did it. >> laurie and val. [ cheers and applause ] laurie and val taking home the mirror ball trophy in one of the closest finales yet. now the final four couples are flying all night joining us for our biggest after-party ever. we're starting your holiday weekend right, only on "gma." >> all: good morning, america. and good morning, america. happy thanksgiving eve. happy birthday, robin. >> thank you for having a dance party in my honor. thank you, george.
7:02 am
busy travel day for millions but there they are, the champs right there, laurie and val. >> and the final four traveled all night to get here and just landed moments ago. and here they are pulling in right now, literally that is right now and we can't wait to hear from them when they come in. >> they're getting here. >> there they are. making their way here. >> that was them right now. off the plane. this is them right now in the minivan or whatever you want to call that. >> it's all good. it's all good, m you bring up traveling. well, take a look. already overnight a major traffic -- okay, let's stay. >> there's the champs. you got to marinate this. just for a minute. >> right. >> we paid a lot of money to get them here. >> right now they're rolling in. >> there's laurie. >> it's wonderful because there's been a big crowd out here since the wee hours and get out of the van and get right out there and greet everybody, and
7:03 am
people that they are. wonderful, wonderful. >> absolutely. all right. but we have to talk about what happened. a major traffic jam in los angeles. millions of americans are about to hit the roads. this is a live look at airport lines across the country. it is the busiest day of the holiday season. two winter storms are moving in. ginger is here with the details. what do we have here, ginger? >> we've got, yeah, two winter storms and this, happening overnight, fresh accidents, new snow and this is just in minneapolis. there is a large area of our nation that we'll watch from chicago to detroit down to houston this morning. >> reporter: fresh slideoffs and spinouts in minnesota as a menacing winter storm marches from the rockies to the plains. crippling white knuckle driving and a major headache just in time for the busiest travel week of the year. >> it is going to be tough. tonight is traditionally the most difficult time.
7:04 am
an expected 43.5 million people will drive more than 50 miles to reach their destination and we have already seen deadly accidents and major gridlock due to the extra cars and icy roads. the best time to venture out is before 11:00 a.m. this morning. if not you'll want to wait until after 7:00 p.m. tonight for better traffic. thanksgiving day and black friday will be two of the best days to hit the road and the worst, sunday, any time between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., experts are expecting a 240% increase in traffic jams and a 100% increase in accidents throughout the day. so we've got winter weather advisories also popping up in parts of the rockies, sierras, cascades and minnesota and wisconsin for the next 12 hours or so. along that cold front there are a couple of areas and roads i'd like you to be aware of. so any highway through chicago,
7:05 am
cincinnati, stopped at 7:00 p.m. if you're one of those people that will wait until after the rush those are two pockets and macy's looks dry to start and rain, snow in the upper elevations. guys, i have to mention, even though we've got the problems out west, if you're dry now and you're going to grandma's house and you have good weather, not going to be the case when you go back. i have the sunday forecast in just a couple of moments when everybody comes back from the holiday. >> the other end of the story, all right, ginger, thank you. airport officials are louisville, long lines after a power outage and in chicago, lines are growing there too. abc's alex perez is at o'hare airport in chicago with plenty of company there. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. that's right. we do have a lot of company with us already. you can see the crowds starting to grow here at terminal one already. the good news they are moving quickly so far. if it feels like the airports
7:06 am
that's because they actually are. 27.3 million will fly. 2.5% more than last year, 2.5 million passengers at airports today alone. now, in fact, airlines are adding 74,000 seats each day just to keep up with demand. now, the tsa since the summer has added about 1,400 a agents and has made many part-time agents full time. but even with all of that they are, of course, insisting that you show up early, give yourself extra time and say you should even give yourself add robin. >> that's true. all right. thank you. we'll move onto the trump transition. just learned the president-elect trump picked south carolina governor nikki haley to be u.n. ambassador. this news comes family settles in at their mar-a-lago estate to celebrate thanksgiving, and after that, "the new york times" interview
7:07 am
campaign, david wright has all the latest. >> reporter: that appointment of nikki haley as u.n. ambassador could well be a signal that trump is willing to work even with those who have opposed him in the past. and it comes as trump himself seems to be retreating from some of his biggest campaign pledges. the 44-year-old republican governor was a supporter of marco rubio in the primaries, but she has since come around. >> well, i won't pretend to have always been president-elect's biggest cheerleader. [ laughter ] i did vote for him and i was absolutely thrilled to see him win. >> reporter: haley is the daughter of indian immigrants who led the charge to remove the confederate flag from south carolina's capital, but it's not clear how much foreign policy experience she has. her appointment comes as the president-elect used a meeting with "the new york times" to backtrack on some of his biggest applause lines from the campaign trail. the crowd chanted "lock her up" at every trump rally in response to the candidate's vow to seek criminal charges against hillary clinton.
7:08 am
my attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to look into her crimes. >> reporter: the president-elect trump told "the times" he's now having second thoughts about following through on that threat. i think it would be very, very divisive for the country, he said, adding, i don't want to hurt the clintons. i really don't. she went through a lot and suffered greatly. >> well, so much for locking her up, i guess. >> reporter: senator lindsey graham told fox news that's not good enough. >> that donald trump said about how crooked she was, that we just don't let it go without some serious effort to see if the law was violated. >> reporter: on climate change, another issue candidate trump hit hard -- >> we will also cancel billions in global warming payments to the united nations. >> reporter: president-elect trump is now more noncommittal,
7:09 am
open mind to it. and on torturing potential terror suspects. >> i would bring back waterboarding and i'd bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding. >> reporter: the president-elect indicated he'd changed his mind about that after his sit-down this weekend with retired general, james mattis, now a candidate for secretary of defense. he says mattis told him establishing trust was far more effective than torture. give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers, and i'll do yo answer. he reversed himself on "the new york times" which throughout the campaign he lambasted as a failing paper, and now he admits he reads it every day, although he joked that he might live 20 years longer if he didn't. >> you two in that "the new york times" interview donald trump was also pressed on possible conflicts of interest involving his business operations around the world. questions are also being raised about his foundation. our chief investigative correspondent, brian ross, is
7:10 am
good morning, brian. >> reporter: good morning. with the election safely behind him donald trump's foundation is admitting it was guilty of self-dealing. and he is defiantly maintaining that if he wanted to, he could run his country perfectly all at the same time. from his penthouse apartment trump has repeatedly used his new position to meet or talk with people would could help push his business interests overseas. some proudly posting pictures online, and n new york times," the law is on my side. the president can't have a conflict of interest. >> i think that we're only at the beginning on the cusp of potential controversy involving conflicts of interest. >> reporter: during the campaign trump and his surrogates denounced an investigation into the trump charitable foundation as political. >> are you confident that the trump foundation has followed all charitable rules and laws? >> well, i hope so. i mean my lawyers do it. >> reporter: but in a new filing, the trump foundation now
7:11 am
self-dealing, following reports by "the washington post," that trump used the charity to pay for a portrait of himself, to help settle lawsuit, even to buy a signed football helmet. and the new filing also reveals that the trump foundation last year just like the clinton foundation, accepted a huge donation, $150,000 in trump's case from a ukrainian billionaire, victor pinchuk, the kind that led to allegations by trump that the clintons and their foundation were corrupt. >> clinton donors got favorable treatment. >> there needs to be a ban on contributions to the trump foundation, and i think that children in particular should not be getting paid speaking fees, particularly overseas, because again, this is a common method that foreign oligarchs
7:12 am
political figures in the united states. >> reporter: and that's the man who wrote so critically about the clintons and their foundation, now a trump insider. peter schweitzer says he fears trump is already creating a climate in which people overseas will try to get to him through his foundation or his business or his children. george. >> okay, brian, thanks very much. more on that from dan abrams and jon karl. we'll come back to that in a minute. jon, let me begin with you and the appointment of nikki haley, had tough words for donald trump throughout the campaign. they appeared to patch it up. this is a real effort by the president-elect to reach out beyond his base. we also hear that ben carson has been offered hud secretary. >> reporter: absolutely, two people that trump sparred with mightily during the primaries and patched it u carson quite some time ago, but i'm also told there's very serious consideration being given to mitt romney as secretary of state. an effort by trump to show that he will reach out, that he will show flexibility, both in terms of who he is putting in his cabinet and also in terms of the positions he is taking. >> but a real dogfight for secretary of state. mitt romney and rudy giuliani, a loyalist there as well. some people saying senator bob corker could be in play, even
7:13 am
>> reporter: i'm told that there are two schools of thought within the trump campaign. really almost warring factions on this issue. there are strong advocates for mitt romney for the symbol that would send to the wired republican party into the foreign policy establishment but those like newt gingrich who came out to say mitt romney would be a big mistake. he'd be concerned mitt romney as secretary of state would be more about mitt romney than about donald trump. >> okay, jon. let's talk about these the president-elect really drew a hard line in that "the new york times" interview yesterday. saying the president can't have a conflict of interest. >> as a legal matter the federal statute that applies to conflicts of are federal employees doesn't apply to the president. he's right on that. there is another provision in the constitution which basically says that a foreign government can't give a gift. that one probably does apply to the president. but as a practical matter, the thing that i would be most
7:14 am
possibility that if he stays involved in any way, he is then subject to lawsuits as well. and so that's the real concern i would have as a legal matter. >> the real questions what kind of fire wall he could set up if the kids are running the business, run every possible transaction by the white house counsel's office. >> in theory, yeah. the ultimate thing would be to sell everything to the kids. that's also very unlikely to happen. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. now to new developments in that school bus crash in tenn went wrong and the driver is facing multiple charges. abc's david kerley has the latest. >> reporter: two pictures this morning, the wreckage of the school bus and the wreckage of families. 9-year-old cordayja jones and zyaira mateen. among the five lost children. whose mother says she complained about the driver before the crash. >> i have been calling the school since the first day.
7:15 am
24-year-old driver only received his commercial license in april, and just two months ago, had an accident in his bus hitting a car. these two boys survived the horrific crash. >> he started turing real fast around the corner. >> it feel like the world was turning upside down. >> he hit a mailbox and garbage can and that's when the tree went through the bus. >> reporter: hearts turned out to remember the young lives lost. the newest statistics, each year on average, five students are killed in school bus but in an instant, five were lost here in chattanooga, renewing the call for seat belts. the cost of 2,000 to $5,000 per bus would mean millions for school districts federal safety officials say it is time. >> we got to quit identifying the barriers why it can't get done and talk about how we get a three-point seat belt on every school bus. >> reporter: only six states require seat belts on school busses, and i have to tell you, this is a shaken community. i talked to a first responder, a veteran firefighter yesterday. he had to stop watching the
7:16 am
robin. >> can only imagine, thanks for being there for us. amy is back from there with the morning's other top stories, starting with a big headline about overtime pay. >> good morning, guys. 4 million americans will now not be getting that increase in overtime pay they may have been expecting. a federal judge blocked a new obama administration rule set to take effect next week. it would have made overtime pay available to salaried wor workers, earning up to $47,000 a year. business groups challenged overstepping its authority. well, police say a person of interest is in custody after the shooting of a police officer at wayne state university in detroit. officer colin rose was shot in the head while investigating car break-ins. he is out of surgery, but is in critical condition. in philadelphia, police are trying to figure out who placed an explosive device inside a package left at a man's door. they say the man opened it thinking it was medication and was then seriously injured.
7:17 am
that victim was targeted and it is not a terror-related case. new video of a fireball seen over the sky in florida there. look at that. that happened monday night. astronomers say this was likely a meteor the size of a baseball. that's it. wow. burning up as it entered the atmosphere. finally speaking of wow, a man who inherited a house from one of his relatives in france got the surprise of a lifetime when he went to visit to sell some of the furniture. take a look at what he found. >> oh, >> 5,000 pieces of gold. they were hidden under chairs like in boxes, in the bathroom beneath linens, in a whiskey bottle. 220 pounds of gold worth $3.7 million. >> wow. >> that's a nice inheritance. >> that is. >> thank you very much. wow. >> that's incredible. >> lucky fella, i guess. all right. thank you, amy.
7:18 am
it's done by some of the brightest and best stars. you can see lights flashing, people are blinking. they're all over the place but this happened on tuesday at president obama's medal of freedom ceremony. >> it's pretty good. >> george, if you really break it down -- if you really break it down, it's a little bit of movement going on there. >> wow. >> you're tough. >> i'm very tough. i got to -- i'll post mine lat on. i'm really still, people. i'm not moving at all. the sweetest moment, ellen degeneres was moved to tears when she received her medal. the president praised her, and praised her for her courage, in coming out 20 years ago, on her sitcom, and it was really amazing. really inspiring. >> a lot of great moments. >> the stars were honored. >> that's it. >> ginger, what do you have? we have a lot of great moments, but for now, we have to

7:39 am
becky is going to join us. becky worley is joining us with more. let's start with these recalled toys, because so many of them are still available online, and there's a new report out about this. tell us about it, becky. >> yeah. it found you really have to pay attention to the toys you're buying, robin, especially toys for toddler talking anything that has small parts, magnets. older, anything with a battery. since january of 2015 there have been over 40 recalls of toys and children's products. 35 million units we're talking about, some of which are still for sale through third party online sellers. let's go through that. these are the examples. a truck from the dollar store with edges sharp enough to cut skin. a remote control copter that has overheating problems. all the companies voluntary recalled the products, but that doesn't mean they still aren't for sale out there, especially on the internet, robin. >> but, becky, more than discuss
7:40 am
>> exactly right. we saw yesterday a big press conference. homeland security and immigration control talking about counterfeit items, the dangers they pose, especially with batteries. we've seen a lawsuit over a counterfeit hoverboard that burned a house to the ground. u.s. customs in georgia seizing $70,000 in counterfeit toys. listen, if you guys are buying electronics with batteries, you need to be sure you're buying from a reputable manufacturer. even if it's not electronics, toys need extra scrutiny. they could have high lead level, parts and pieces. they aren't tested so we don't know. if the price seems too good to be true and don't know the reseller, don't take the chance. >> all good things to keep in mind. >> a good deal is not always a good deal. >> that's right. >> thank you, becky. and up next, before you cook those thanksgiving birds, a growing number of people plan to deep fry their turkeys this year. a trend that is dangerous, and
7:41 am
an idea. >> the key is you drop it nice and gentle like. oh, no! oh, god! >> not far off. >> we're laughing about this. it's very funny, of course, but there's a real serious concern when a lot of people are trying to deep fry turkeys. >> i've covered so many of these fires. they're terrible. we're talking about five deaths every year. 900 homes destroyed. so we've got tips from turkey fryer experts. you want to keep that fryer at least 10 feet away from your home on a stable surface. you want to monitor those fluid levels. you don't want it to overflow. you want to fully thaw that turkey. you don't want that frozen turkey to be going into the fryer, and you want to monitor the temperature. you want to avoid the oil smoke point. that's what gets very dangerous but you know what, we found a little video of another little tip. maybe we can show this. that's a drone dropping. if you could stay away from it.
7:42 am
>> that's a little turkey. that's a personal turkey right there. >> i think it's just a leg. i don't know what that is. >> have you ever had deep-fried turkey? it is delicious. >> i have it every year but i have somebody else make it. have somebody else cook it. then i take it. >> of course, you do. smart man. are there other dangers we should be aware of on thanksgiving? >> this is surprising. the usda, 68% of people actually wash the turkey before they eat it before they cook it. the usda says don't wash it. just use it, jus and you will be fine because bacteria then won't spread all over the table. that's what you do. >> same thing with chicken. do not wash it. you feel like you're doing something good. thank you. now if you are nostalgic for that flip phone, you may be in luck because apple has been grabbed a new patent for a foldable device sparking curiosity that the flip phone may be back. what is old could be new again, nick?
7:43 am

7:49 am
clearly state referees' decisions are final. the athletic association refused to overturn the outcome. even after acknowledging and apologizing for the error. plainfield district officials say they empathize with fenwick and they should be proud however however plainfield north is preparing for the state championship game on saturday. in other words, sucks for you. look, look here, the state athletic association said we can't do anything because the rules state we can't change it but now lawyers have found a case from 2009 where they did overturn a game, a soccer game, but similar situation, so it is possible. >> but is it timing? it has to happen before the game, saturday? >> yeah, the championship game is saturday afternoon. >> are they practicing leading up just in case. >> everybody is practicing just in case, but the game is on this saturday. >> did soccer have the same rules about the decisions are final by the refs? >> applies to all sports. it has to be final because then you could go back in the second quarter and say this ref messed

[ cheers and applause ] a little "pop news" and do you guys remember we told you all about a story earlier this month involving bruce springsteen. you may recall this image of some motorcycle riding veterans came to his down. that motorcycle was built for the boss by billy joel, it turns out. who would have thunk. joel reportedly told the crowd at his concert monday night, new york's madison square garden bruce borrowed his custom and this is a bike sacred cow bobber and loved that bobber so much billy had one made for him. they have been dear friends for a long time. billy owns a motorcycle shop on long island, i also did not know that.

8:11 am
people say, let's just get a sandwich or something. "or something"? you don't just graduate from medical school, "or something." and we don't just pull smoked chicken, bake fresh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it. as soon as i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot, i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl.
8:12 am
but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding.
8:13 am
if switching to eliquis is right for you. we invited women to a spa to test a new body wash. dish soap. you may not feel it, but some body washes can contain cleansers found in dish soap. dove body wash is different. it has only the gentlest cleansers. this is dove. know what makes rushing out for black friday sales worth it? diamonds. and the zales black friday sale has lots and lots of diamonds. shop now through black friday for 35 percent off an amazing selection storewide. only at zales, the diamond store. ? eat up, buddy. you'll get it this time. yeah ok not too quick don't let go until i say so. i got you...

[ applause ] >> the judges called you the miracle man of season 23. but was it hard to kind of go back to that crash? >> you know, in a lot of ways it was but at the same time there was some of this gap in my story as we talked about and i was so lucky that sharna was able to create something for me that filled that void and almost
8:26 am
was almost closure on the whole thing and in a lot of ways i come away -- it's a very rich experience for me to be honest. >> i'll bet it was. >> i'll bet it was and just brilliant. >> say this every time you all are here, love the stars the way you come out. but your partners, these professional dancers really -- [ cheers and applause ] >> before we go let's picture of this baby girl. what do you want to say to her this morning. >> i cannot wait to see her. i love you so much, baby girl. >> we'll be right back.

[ cheers and applause ] that's what the judges said and i think part of it is we knew that you didn't have any prior dance experience. you said you didn't even dance with your girlfriend before. >> i want to make it clear i
8:34 am
for the coach and the teacher that i had because i came in with zero experience. i don't think i ever danced sober before i got on the show and to go from that to where we ended up and having a compliment like that from julianne speaks volumes for this woman sitting next to me and everything she does as a coach. >> sharna, you were injured, came back, all the way to second future i hope you'll stay. >> absolutely. i'm not going anywhere. incredible season for me and i love that i got to come back and be able to share those last two weeks with james. it was an amazing, amazing finale. >> fun to watch. >> absolutely. and calvin, you were at the top of your game. you know, pro football hall of famer soon in my opinion, but you gave it all up to spend more time with your 2-year-old son so we saw him on the show last night, man. he must be so -- he must be proud of you. >> oh, man, he is.
