7:01 am
it's one, two, three strikes he's out at the old ball game and what the team did to help him. >> come on, guys. it's not as easy as it looks. >> apparently not. >> kind of a helpless yankee fan there, bam! oh, well. >> oh. >> oops. oh. >> oh. >> right in the glasses. oh, my goodness, it's a busy wednesday morning. in just a minute kim davis on that secret meeting with the pope. you see her right there and it is a wet day here in new york with a lot more to come. >> right to the weather. we begin with that massive storm churning in the atlantic. joaquin picking up strength as it moves towards the east coast as a hurricane warning is issued this morning for the bahamas. ginger following its path and this one could be a big problem. >> now we have got hurricane
7:02 am
joaquin. 75 miles per hour moving southwest at six miles. lots of warm water. we got hurricane watching and warnings for central and northern bahamas and rip current and advisories from kousle south carolina. it's very slow and moves slowly and could go up to category 2 hurricane. plenty of warm water and the cone of uncertainty takes it to the midatlantic. lots of possibilities. that's why we put on the spaghetti computer plots here. timing is sunday into monday. it's just too soon to say if any impact to the united states. george. >> which means you will have a busy week in the next few days. >> thanks very much. to that secret meeting between kim davis and pope francis. the kentucky county clerk who refuses to license same-sex marriage says the meeting happened in washington last week and this morning she's talking about it for the first time. abc's paula faris here with that story. >> good morning.
7:03 am
you know, kim davis told me this was always about her religious liberty and conscience and apparently has pope francis in her corner. we're told the vatican reached out to her and arranged this secret meeting with her and until now they've kept it under wraps. with enthusiastic crowds lining the streets from new york to d.c., the pope seemed to strike just the right note with americans on his visit. but now this morning reports of a secret meeting with kim davis, the county clerk in kentucky who defied a court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. >> but it was really very humbling to even think that he would want to, you know, meet me or know me. >> reporter: she and her husband met the pope during the washington leg of his trip after receiving a surprise phone call from a vatican official. >> i put my hand out and he reached and he grabbed it and i hugged him and he hugged me and he said thank you for your courage. >> reporter: after being jailed
7:04 am
for six days, davis is now back at work but still not issuing any marriage licenses, a stance pope francis voiced his support for during a press conference on his flight back to rome. >> do you support those kinds of claims of religious liberty? >> reporter: telling abc's terry moran. conscientious objection is a human right even for government officials. >> before he left he said, stay strong. that was a great encouragement just knowing that the pope is on track, you know, with what we're doing and agreeing, you know, kind of validates everything. >> reporter: according to davis and her lawyer vatican officials stayed mum on the meeting because they didn't want the pope's visit to be focused on kim davis. davis saying the pope left her with a rosary and a renewed commitment to her cause. >> i've weighed the cost and i'm prepared to do whatever it takes. >> reporter: and kim davis plans on giving that rosary to her parents who are catholic, of course, she is not. at this point the vatican is not confirming nor denying it took
7:05 am
place but kim's counsel told us we can expect to see photos of it at some point. this pope is not shying away from controversy, this is the clearest example yet. >> thank you so much. turning now to the war against isis and the crisis in syria. russia making a big announcement this morning that could prolong the conflict. and an alarming new report high lighting the threat of foreign fighters including americans joining the brutal terror group. abc's martha raddatz is in washington with the very latest. martha, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, lara. this is a very troubling step this morning by vladimir putin to get more involved in the conflict in syria. for the first time today. launching air strikes in syria which the russians claim are targeting isis and which will help prop up the government of syria's president assad. the u.s. of course wants assad out but he could get more help from russia. overnight putin got approval from his parliament to use
7:06 am
military force the exact kind of approval he received before going into ukraine in early 2014 this also comes on the heels of a new report showing 250 americans have travelled to iraq or syria to join isis or other extremist groups. the bipartisan report concluding that americans are being radicalized at an unprecedented rate and law enforcement just can't keep up with it. lara. >> so troubling. thank you, martha raddatz. the race for president now, "your voice, your vote." and this morning bill clinton takes on donald trump, the former president firing back after trump's attacks on hillary clinton as trump takes a new tact with fox news. tom llamas covering it all. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. a busy day here in new hampshire. donald trump, jeb bush and dr. ben carson all campaigning in the granite state and trump saying he is working on his likability since his
7:07 am
unfavorables have been so high in poll after poll, this coming as a fresh round of attacks are facing donald trump including one from a former president. >> heck, it's a crazy season. >> reporter: he's back. former president bill clinton making the rounds and the case why his wife should be president defending hillary from one of her harshest critics, donald trump. >> he asked her to come to his wedding when he found out we were going to be in florida. i don't know how many times he told me what a wonderful job she did in new york as a senator. >> reporter: firing back after trump's attacks on hillary's time as secretary of state. >> you shouldn't be able to insult your way to the white house. >> reporter: and hillary clinton who has seen her lead in the latest national poll nearly evaporate using trump's own words to rally donors. >> you know the word shrill, she's become shrill. >> reporter: in an e-mail to supporters the clinton campaign painting the remark as sexist saying is the woman who asks for the raise she deserves shrill?
7:08 am
trump saying the comment wasn't sexist. >> i'm back. >> reporter: the billionaire ending his self-declared boycott of fox news and defending his tax plan which one conservative tax group said would add more than $10 trillion to the deficit. trump saying he'd also save money by cutting waste. >> department of education, tremendous cuts. department of environmental protection where they're actually going around and causing damage as opposed to saving damage. >> reporter: this as senator marco rubio keeps hammering trump that he's unfit for the presidency. >> the presidency is a tough job. you're going to be criticized and you can't flip out every time somebody says something about you. >> reporter: money is so important at this point in the race and this morning, news that one of the three super packs supporting rand paul is no longer raising money for him. this as ted cruz is out with a video, senator ted cruz showing paul supporters in iowa, new hampshire now supporting cruz. he's clearly going after that libertarian vote and finally this morning, donald trump on yet another cover. this is the cover of "people"
7:09 am
magazine this week. you can see donald trump there with his wife melania and their son barron inside his life right now. >> let's talk to matt dowd about this. president clinton, he caused some trouble for hillary clinton's campaign last time but also gave a big boost to president obama's re-election so how does he play now? >> mariano rivera was a popular relief pitcher and he's retired but bringing him in giving up a lot of runs, i don't know how helpful it will be. bill is popular but hillary will have to do this on her own now in a great tussle with donald trump. we'll see how that unfolds. >> trump has the new tax plan, playing nice with fox. this new phase of the campaign, a real test for him. >> yeah, it is and i think he really needs a second act. the first part of the summer has been great. he needs an act where basically he adds substance and adds real gravitas to the presidency. i don't know if he can do that but that's what he needs to do. >> matt dowd thanks very much.
7:10 am
to a serious health alert. new questions about calcium supplements taken by millions who think they're strengthening their bones. two new studies find the supplement may actually do more harm than good. abc's dr. richard besser here to explain. what are the conclusions of this study? turns it on its ear. >> this is very important news. millions take these supplements to try and reduce the risk they're going to have fractures. now two studies in an important journal reviewed all the work that's been done on this and found except for elderly women in nursing homes where there is some benefit the slight benefit you might find is outweighed by the risks. >> the risks are serious. >> they are. you can experience mild things like constipation, abdominal pain but increased risk of kidney stones, even a slight increased risk of heart attack here. we reached out to the industry trade group and they challenged the findings and say that calcium supplements are safe and effective. but if you want to continue taking these, you really should talk to your doctor. >> you need to know about those risks. so many of us take them every
7:11 am
day thinking we're doing good for our body. you have tips for us online. >> i will have them on twitter right after this. >> thank you. rich. >> okay, lara, thanks. the showdown over planned parenthood. its ceo cecile richards on the hot seat in congress facing questions about those undercover videos overspending, even her salary as some conservatives threaten to shut down the government if the organization's federal funding is not cut off. abc's jon karl covered the fireworks. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. through hours of intense questioning, republicans made it perfectly clear they now consider planned parenthood target number one. the head of planned parenthood faced a barrage of questions and criticism from republicans. the hearing lasted five hours. >> do you profit or make money on abortion services? >> why do you need federal dollars? you're making a ton of dough. >> i don't get -- we don't make any profit off of federal money. >> reporter: republicans want to strip planned parenthood of all its public funding in the wake of a series of controversial
7:12 am
undercover videos shot by anti-abortion activists, planned parenthood president cecile richards said the group does not sell fetal tissue. >> the outrageous accusations leveled against planned parenthood based on heavily doctored videos are offensive and categorically untrue. >> reporter: republican presidential candidates have made defunding planned parenthood a central campaign issue. just look at the last debate. >> these planned parenthood videos are horrifying. >> i don't believe planned parenthood should get a penny from the federal government. >> this is about the character of our nation. >> reporter: at the hearing republicans also condemned planned parenthood's spending, demanding to know why richards is paid more than $500,000 a year. the line of questioning that democrats found sexist. >> i first would like to register my opposition and my objection to the chairman beating up on a woman on our witness today for making a good salary. >> i can assure you i've seen many male witnesses treated much tougher than you've been treated
7:13 am
here today. surely you don't expect us to be easier on you because you're a woman. >> absolutely not. that's not how my momma raised me. >> planned parenthood gets more than $500 million a year in government funding. by law, none of that money can go to abortion but republicans now say they want to take away all of the funding, some of them even if that means shutting down the government. lara. >> all right, jon karl in washington, thank you. now to the execution of the georgia mother on death row. the first woman put to death in that state in 70 years. and even a flurry of last-minute appeals could not persuade authorities to spare her life. abc's david wright has the story. >> reporter: despite a flurry of last-minute appeals, 47-year-old kelly renee gissendaner was put to death this morning by lethal injection. her last breath coming at 12:21 a.m. the mother of three, the first woman to be put to death in georgia in 70 years wanted her children to know she left the
7:14 am
world singing "amazing grace" according to her lawyer. gissendaner was convicted of murder in 1997 after her husband was stabbed to death by her then boyfriend. the boyfriend copped a plea and testified against her, receiving a lighter sentence. gissendaner was a model inmate graduating from a prison theology program in 2011 and winning her children's forgiveness. they pleaded for her life. >> my brothers and i really want my mom to live. she is all that we have left. >> reporter: so did pope francis who believes the death penalty is immoral. the pope asked officials in georgia to commute the sentence to one that would better express both justice and mercy. >> every life is sacred. >> reporter: this is an unusual case. it is rare for someone to be put to death who did not actually pull the trigger in a murder. today a lot of people are going to be questioning whether this was fair, especially given the fact that her children forgave her, lara. >> all right, thank you very much, david. amy now with the important's other top stories starting with more u.s. air strikes in afghanistan.
7:15 am
>> that's right, the u.s. military launched three more air strikes on taliban positions around the afghan city of konduz. that is the city seized by the taliban this week in a stunning attack. fierce fighting for control of the airport raged through the night and now the taliban has also attacked government facilities in a neighboring province. well back here in this country a frightening scene in texas. the wing of this regional jet hit the runway while landing at mcallen airport near the mexico border. pilots quickly righted the plane. mesa airlines which was operating this flight is now investigating what happened. and a manhunt under way for a convicted killer mistakenly released. from a louisiana prison. benjuiel johnson was serving a 40-year sentence. it took them five days to find the mistake. and they're blaming missing paperwork. another win for tom brady, the nfl's appeal in the deflategate case will not be heard until february. that means brady is free to play the entire season. take a look at a guy who
7:16 am
will be getting a lot of grief at the office today. sorry. he was at the yankees game last night. right there in the blue shirt. ah, he tried to catch his first fly ball. then the second one, boom. and then finally in a last-ditch effort. what you didn't see, in an effort to restore his dignity the team's ball boy actually tossed him that ball like, hey, here you go, guy. we knew you couldn't catch the first two. he couldn't catch that either. the lesson is if you're going to have a seat like that in the front row bring a baseball glove. it's really helpful. >> got to have a mitt. >> he looks like he's in pretty good shape too. >> maybe no hand/eye coordination. >> maybe time for a new -- now for his eye doctor. >> could be. the question of the morning. will future cars drive themself? you'll see the car in just 30 seconds.
7:17 am
thanks to google, driving in the future may mean telling the car where to go and sitting back and enjoying the ride. neal karlinsky took a test ride. >> reporter: this little round bubble of a car just might be the future. you could hear it humming. we were invited to the normally secret google x facility to be among the first outsiders to ride in their self-driving car prototype. >> there is no steering wheel in here. there is just -- >> car coming up. >> whoa. there's a car, we're dodging the car. we seem to be going slowly and trailing behind it. now, here's a guy with a bicycle. >> reporter: with a top speed of 25 miles per hour we were on a closed course for a four-minute ride filled with obstacles meant to simulate the real world.
7:18 am
it's pretty spacious in here. there's two of us and there's just a go button and a stop button and that's all there is. one test car stopped suddenly midway but the rest went smoothly. it's no gimmick. google believes self-driving cars will be a reality a lot sooner than you think. >> we've been driving on public roads for, what, 1.2 million miles at this point so it's about 90 years of kind of normal human driving experience so it's getting really quite good. >> reporter: this is what the car sees through a series of camera, radars and lasers. it identifies people, other cars, everything. apple is reportedly working on its own prototype car. others too. but at google the secret is out. they're letting the car do the talking and the driving. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, mountain view, california. >> that would take a lot of getting used to. not to have that wheel. >> i like the concept but it would be scary. >> yeah. >> let go of the wheel. all right, so much more coming up on "good morning america." an abc news exclusive.

imagine walking a mile in someone else's headline. >> now nearly 20 years later lewinsky re-emerging speaking out all over the world asking us to click with compassion. her newest job as a strategic adviser to bystander revolution working with student youth ambassadors to help victims of bullying. and i sat down with monica lewinsky to discuss her new mission in life, the presidential race and what it's like being monica lewinsky. there was something very powerful that happened that i read pushed you back into the public spotlight. there was a tragedy, a young boy, tyler clementi. here was this young man betrayed by someone, put on display for the public and he ended his life. something you thought about and your mother was afraid you would do and this was a real call to action for you. >> it was. you know, having this experience with my mom. she kept saying tyler's poor parents. i realized afterwards that she

8:20 am
you know. they want to impress the girls and they want to be all on par with each other. >> reporter: and for that they're turning to protein but the recommended dietary allowance is only 52 grams per day, even less for teen girls. now, megan does cite instances where protein powders can be helpful as a portion of a high calorie diet like for extreme athletes. but -- >> too much protein can be harmful on the body. you know, it can be hard on your kidneys especially, the liver, and it can be dehydrating. >> reporter: instead of powders and supplements, she recommends real food like this shake, walnuts, greek yogurt, some juice and berries. i try it out on my little muscle man. the verdict, thumbs up and a milk mustache. wow, no protein powder needed here. he's a little young for that, but, hey, you got to start somewhere. now that shake that my little athlete consumed so happily, it had 20 grams of protein. you combine this with egg salad
8:21 am
for lunch and chicken for dinner and a teen boy could easily hit that 50-gram mark, but one note, the protein number will grow as they do, so a rough guide, take half of what a boy weighs and that's the protein he needs, so, for example, as he gets bigger, 140-pound teen would need more like 70 grams of protein, but, george, i can't really imagine my 7-year-old ever hitting that size. >> no, but he's pretty strong. he looks good right there. so, when do the supplements make sense? >> yeah, i mean the thing is is that a shake with protein powder every once in a while is no problem. so what you want to do is pick one that has very few ingredients, not a massive list of other vitamins or added sugars, but the issue with teenagers, they want results fast, and they can go to extremes, and that may not be healthy in the long run. >> right, that's what you want to avoid. okay, becky, good advice. thanks very much. let's go outside to ginger. >> hey, george, let's go ahead
