and good morning, america. how good is it to be taylor crozier, that little 11-year-old boy right there? first shot and a brand-new tiger woods golf course. you saw it was a par 3. you can guess what happened. >> hole in one like that you could not have scripted it any better. another person having a great day is astronaut scott kelly. back here in the good old u.s. of a touching down in houston reuniting with family and friends. we'll have the latest on that just ahead. we do begin with that breaking news in the race for the white house. mitt romney set to launch a major new attack in the gop establishment's battle with donald trump as the candidates get ready for another crucial debate tonight. abc's tom llamas is on the scene in detroit where that debate will take place, good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning. and i have a copy of mitt romney's speech right here. he's going to deliver it in a few hours.
7:02 am
it is a blistering attack on donald trump. he calls trump a phony and a fraud and plays america for suckers and in one of the last lines of the speech, he says trump gets a free ride to the white house and all we get is a lousy hat. many people talked about a republican civil war when it comes to trump being the nominee. judging from the speech, that war is now under way. back in 2012, their relationship was in full bloom. donald trump endorsing mitt romney. >> i'm so honored and pleased to have his endorsement. >> reporter: but now romney thinks trump is toxic to the party and is set to make the case against him later in a major speech. romney calling for him to release his tax returns. >> i think we have good reason to believe that there is a bombshell in donald trump's taxes. >> reporter: but trump firing back, posting this clip on his facebook page, a greatest hits of mitt romney's least conservative moments. >> i will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose. >> i want universal coverage. i want everyone in massachusetts
7:03 am
and this country to have insurance. >> reporter: trump tweeting that romney's upcoming news conference is just another desperate move by the man who should have easily beaten barack obama. marco rubio tells me the battle for the conservative movement is why he's still fighting after winning only one state out of 15. >> i am willing to fight as long as it takes to ensure that we save the conservative movement in the republican party from a con artist like donald trump. >> reporter: senator cruz saying right now there are too many candidates to beat trump. >> if we are going to beat donald trump, the field can't remain fractured. >> reporter: the field is narrowing. dr. ben carson essentially ending his campaign on wednesday announcing there's no political path forward. >> and as trump racks up victories, confidence is spreading through the trump family. melania trump when asked making her case for first lady. >> would you be a good first lady, do you think? >> yes, of course. >> why? >> i -- i'm a perfectionist.
7:04 am
i like to do things perfect and i like to put myself 100% into it, into what i do. >> reporter: melania trump back to the establishment attacks on donald trump. this letter out this morning for more than 50 gop national security professionals making the same case. donald trump will keep us less safe, a point mitt romney will make and trump will lead us right to an economic recession, george. >> okay, tom, thanks. let's hear what donald trump has to say about it right now. mr. trump, thank you for joining us again this morning. i want to put up that excerpt up on the screen right now. he says, here's what i know, donald trump is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as a degree from trump university. he's playing the american public for suckers. he gets a free ride to the white house, all we get is a lousy hat. your response? >> well, look, mitt romney was a failed candidate, should have beaten barack obama easily. i've brought millions and millions of people and you know
7:05 am
this, george, because i saw your report on it into the republican party over the last very short period of time. it's the biggest story in politic, how many people are flocking into the republican party. they're leaving the democrats, they're leaving the independents, they're no longer independent. they're now going as republicans and they're with me 100%. i have rallies the other day in alabama, we had 35,000 people. 35,000, the biggest one of the season by anybody by far. we're having the biggest rallies. we get 20,000 and 15,000 routinely and there's great enthusiasm -- >> how about -- >> except by the establishment. >> how about the substance. he brings up trump university. you're facing ads in several states, several million dollars in ads where victims say they were scammed out of thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars. that's hitting you hard right in the middle of the campaign. >> george, it's a simple civil case. i could have settled and probably still could very, very easily but i don't want to settle it because, look, the people that took the course, 98%
7:06 am
of those people liked the school. we have report cards. every single person that is in a civil case -- >> that was before they took the courses. >> excuse me. every single person that has taken it practically, almost all, 98%, loved it. we have an "a" from the better business bureau. we got rated "a." it's a legal deal for lawyers to make money. >> sir, according to "the new york daily news" you got a "d" minus from the better business bureau. >> take a look at it. you're wrong. it's up there right now. >> i have it. >> it's posted as an "a" and i think they gave us a different mark before we gave them information. after they got the information they gave us an "a" so we have an "a." who is going to settle a lawsuit when everybody is suing. these are just people saying, oh, wow, if i can get my money back. i'm sued all the time and so is every other big business person. the difference -- this is why they say if you're successful you can't run for political office because everything you do you get sued on and it gets exposed.
7:07 am
we will win that case very easily. i just don't want to settle. i can settle it's easily. i just don't want to settle. >> how about the foreign policy attacks from these 50 foreign policy experts? they say your advocacy for trade wars is a recipe for economic disaster in a globally connected world. his embrace of the expansive use of torture is inexcusable. the former head of the cia has said the military will refuse to act if you order torture because they're not required to follow orders that violate international law. how would president trump respond if the military refused to follow your orders? >> i'll tell you how good our military is doing under michael hayden and people such as this. we've been fighting wars in the middle east for 15 years, 18 years, we're in debt $4 trillion or $5 trillion. we don't know what we're doing or who we're fighting. we are arming enemies -- arming people that we want on our side. we don't even know who they are. when they take over a country they're worse than the people they depose. give me a break and as far as
7:08 am
the economics are concerned we're going to lose $500 billion this year with china. we're losing with japan. we're losing with mexico. at the border and at trade. don't tell me about these people that sit around. the american worker is making less money now than they made 12 years ago, george. and that's why they're banking on me. but now they're spending the establishment is spending $100 million on phony ads against me and who knows what that does. >> but the question -- >> but i will tell you this, the republicans, it's dynamic what's happening. millions of people are joining the republican party because of me. and you know what, the republican establishment will probably give it right back and go back to the ole days of mitt romney that couldn't win. >> back to the question, if you order torture and the military refuses to carry out your orders, how will you respond? >> i don't think that would happen. i'm a leader. i don't think that would happen. they're cutting off heads in the middle east.
7:09 am
they're chopping off people's heads in the middle east and we're afraid to waterboard. give me a break, george. general douglas macarthur and general patton are in their graves right now spinning in their graves, they don't believe what they're seeing. we don't know how to win anymore. we can't win a war. we can't win economically and this is why this is happening. remember, we're losing $500 billion in terms of trade deficit with china. we have to change things around. we can't go on like this, george. >> ready for megyn kelly tonight? >> i'm ready. i'm absolutely ready. >> mr. trump, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. >> we invited marco rubio and ted cruz on this morning. they both declined. >> now to the democratic race, hillary clinton celebrating her super tuesday victories at a star-studded bash overnight as there's breaking news in her e-mail scandal. abc's cecilia vega is here with the latest on that, good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning to you. there are new reports this morning that the fbi could seek to question hillary clinton herself in the coming weeks and
7:10 am
the justice department has reportedly granted immunity to an aide who worked on her private e-mail server. this as clinton moves closer to securing this nomination. overnight in full celebration mode at a star-studded radio city music hall fund-raiser. ♪ you're going to hear me roar >> reporter: a hollywood who's who of supporters there for the big show. ♪ ballerina >> reporter: from elton john. >> this is a very important year for america and she's the only hope you have. >> reporter: to katy perry. >> the election feels very personal to me. >> reporter: julianne moore and jamie foxx. >> hillary. >> reporter: and the entire clinton family but the clintons are not the only ones packing in the crowds. >> thank you, bernie. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: bernie sanders now struggling to keep up with his rival's delegate lead but he is still drawing big support from maine to michigan.
7:11 am
>> a great nation is judged not by how many millionaires and billionaires it has, but by how it treats the weakest and most vulnerable amongst us. >> reporter: this crowd overnight reaching 10,000 strong and while clinton still has the vermont senator to contend with, she now seems laser focused on a different man standing in her way. >> so, we've got work to do, my friends. but not to make america great again, america never stopped being great. [ cheers and applause ] >> we have to make america whole. >> reporter: now, on those e-mails clinton's aides insist this is not cause for concern. they say the possibility of an fbi interview is a sign the investigation could be concluded soon. guys, still, this is not the headline this team wants to deal with as she says it's time to take her campaign national. >> especially at this point right now. all right, cecilia, thank you. joining us from washington abc's
7:12 am
jon karl picking up on what cecilia was talking about with the e-mail controversy. in your opinion what does this mean for her campaign, hillary clinton? >> this is the cloud that just won't go away. the latest reports are an indication this remains very much an active fbi investigation and although there's absolutely no indication that clinton herself is a target, it is very likely that she will be asked to testify or at least come in and take questions from the fbi in the coming weeks. now, the campaign says she is happy to do that but trust me, that is not the way a candidate working to wrap up her party's nomination and as cecilia said take her campaign national wants to be spending her time. >> not at all. let's talk about the gop big debate tonight on fox. you heard that donald trump just talking with george, what do the other candidates have to do to effectively take on trump tonight? >> reporter: well, trump's rivals are almost out of time and this debate is one last golden opportunity to find a way to take him down. there will be only four candidates on the stage, that means more time to put trump on
7:13 am
the spot and he will be facing as you pointed out not just the rivals, but also megyn kelly who has shown maybe more than just about anybody that she can really get under trump's skin. >> we'll see what happens tonight, jon. thank you. a massive manhunt for a band of robbers. they captured three of the suspects seen in this video. it shows ten thieves swarming a gun shop making off with dozens of guns. abc's phillip mena has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, after a two-day manhunt, police say they have captured three of these ten brazen gun store bandits who were caught on five different security cameras raiding a houston shop in this newly released surveillance video. watch as the hooded and masked suspects use a chain attached to a pickup truck to rip the steel clad front door right off its hinges. they burst inside ransacking the premises using hammers to smash the display cases snatching dozens of weapons.
7:14 am
this thief jumping over a counter to rip an assault rifle off a wall display and this hooded burglar bagging at least 18 handguns in just 30 seconds. >> what it potentially means you have that many people now distributing firearms on the streets of houston. >> reporter: the crooks making several trips back to their escape vehicles to unload the loot. one suspect nearly falling as he races back into the store. others dropping a few guns as they rush to escape before police arrive. police say it took the thieves less than two minutes to get away with more than 50 weapons while authorities say some of these stolen guns have just been recovered, they're still concerned over the possible crimes that might be committed with the stolen guns still at large. >> you got another criminal element that needs firearms to commit their crimes, sometimes associated with the drug trade or robberies. >> reporter: police say the suspects changed getaway vehicles about a block away. this morning authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to their
7:15 am
arrests. george, robin. >> that is alarming video. >> it really is. now to a caught on camera encounter between an officer and teen triggering outrage at a baltimore public school. this morning the footage shows the officer slapping and kicking a student, abc's mary bruce has the details and joins us from baltimore. good morning, mary. >> reporter: hi, robin. good morning. what happened here is hard to watch. the video is just a few seconds long but it has already sparked what the school system is calling a vigorous investigation. this morning, baltimore prosecutors launching a criminal investigation into this brutal attack caught on tape. the video just four seconds long going viral. watch as an armed school police officer at baltimore's reach partnership school slaps this 16-year-old boy three times before kicking him. look closely, a second officer standing next to him doesn't flinch or react. the video sending shock waves through the community. >> as a parent of a baltimore
7:16 am
city school student, i was appalled by what i saw, that behavior that was demonstrated on the -- the video is certainly something you never want to see. >> reporter: this morning school officials telling abc news the two officers have been placed on administrative leave. >> this incident is not indicative. this is unacceptable. it's not behavior that will ever be tolerated by any city school employee but this is an isolated incident. >> reporter: words of little comfort for this teen whose lawyer says suffered injuries to his rib and face. his family asking to keep his identity private. >> this isn't the wild, wild west. even if, in fact, that client had done something to provoke the incident it's not an eye for an eye. that's not how police are trained. >> reporter: now his lawyer says the teen is a student here but officials say he is not and that his presence here on these grounds is now under investigation. george and robin. >> wow.
7:17 am
thank goodness the camera was there. >> that's true. >> very unfortunate. >> a higher note. >> a little better feel-good story from tiger woods who was in texas yesterday for the opening of a new golf course he designed but i bet you he didn't see this coming. check this out. there they are walking to the green, 11-year-old junior player crozier hit the first shot an a par 3. his it, it trickles down, gets a hole in one -- right in front -- >> the first shot. >> tiger steps up and says, now i have to follow that? are you kidding me right now? but it was such a good thing. tiger later on signed the score card and the card shows that taylor and his friend beat tiger by three strokes. >> a hole in one. >> taylor has the chance to play with tiger because he had perfect attendance at school. this is a pretty good excuse to skip a day when he goes back, everybody knows why. >> a sweet swing.
7:18 am
>> sweet swing. he could beat me and you george, we've played together. i think he got both of us. >> he sure does. thank you, michael. on to rob. you have this winter storm moving east. >> not a great day to be playing golf. you made it way too easy. he'll have to buy everybody a round of milk. snow across the midwest today. generally speaking 1 to 3 inches but a winter storm watch posted for richmond where we see the heaviest snow. snow in chicago this morning. tomorrow from d.c. to new york just enough to make for a bit of a messy commute and boston, here you go, widespread 1 to 3 inches.

7:31 am
on everyone from leo to lady gaga for what they said during the biggest night in hollywood. we'll tell you why coming up. >> she did not -- >> she didn't hold back. >> not at all, michael. we begin with that legal battle between hulk hogan and the website gawker. the former pro wrestler is fighting it out in court this time suing the site for $100 million for posting a portion of his private tape. abc's linzie janis is here with the latest. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. after nearly four years of legal wrangling the trial is finally here with jury selection under way and this is significant because it is the first celebrity sex tape case to ever go to trial. this morning, hulk hogan is preparing for the battle of a lifetime. but this time the hulkster whose real name is terry bollea isn't headed into the ring but into a courtroom. the wwe star suing the gossip
7:32 am
site for $100 million for posting a video of him having sex with heather clem, the then wife of his former best friend. florida radio deejay bubba the love sponge. >> this was incredible. invasion of his privacy. it was taken without his knowledge and/or consent. >> reporter: now hogan tweeting before court tuesday, "time for the real main event. i am going to slam another giant." but gawker arguing the tape and hogan's affair were newsworthy. >> months before gawker published this was a giant story in the news. >> reporter: the company telling abc news, "we are defending the first amendment against hulk hogan's effort to create a world where celebrities can promote themselves around any topic, in this case sex, and then veto how the media covers their lives. hulk hogan bragged about his sex life for years and denied this
7:33 am
particular sexual encounter." hogan maintains the leaked tape has damaged both his personal and professional life. he was wiped from the wwe hall of fame in july after the national enquirer released a previously unheard audiotape from the sex tape. hogan heard making racial slurs. >> can we stop for a second? >> reporter: telling amy robach after the audio's release he hit rock bottom. >> i was at the lowest point of my life to the point where i wanted to kill myself. >> you were suicidal. >> yes, i was. >> reporter: opening arguments are set to begin monday and the trial is expected to take three weeks, hogan is expected to take the witness stand. robin. >> linzie, thank you. we bring in abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams for this. a high-profile case like this seating a jury, how difficult is that? what are both sides looking for? >> i think you'll be able to find a jury pretty easily. there's been a lot higher profile cases where they have. but it is critical.
7:34 am
why? they're not fighting over the facts, they kind of agree as to what happened. it's a question of how do you interpret the law and so which jurors you get and what mind-set they come in with is absolutely critical. so hogan's team will want people simply offended that gawker published this at all while gawker's team will want people more willing to focus on sort of constitutional principles but it will be an interesting case to be a juror on because no one was killed here. you got some sort of obnoxious high-profile person against an obnoxious high-profile media entity, kind of a fun case to preside over. >> that's one way of looking at it. >> yeah. >> gawker's stance is that first amendment. >> that's right and it's hard -- some people will say, it's a sex tape. how could there be a first amendment claim? what gawker is basically saying is the minute hulk hogan starts always talking about his sex life and specifically talking about not having sex with the person he's having sex with on
7:35 am
the tape, that that becomes newsworthy. they say, look, we only used a little over a minute of the tape. we didn't play the whole thing. we were using it just as much as was necessary to be newsworthy. >> won't it be tricky with the jury. >> absolutely. it's going to be a hard argument for a jury. it's the sort of argument better in an appellate court. key question did they need to use the tape. >> you think it's fun. i don't know if the two sides think it is. >> i think it's a fascinating case. >> the bus brawl caught on camera. three college students claimed they were attacked because of their race but now facing charges because this surveillance video tells a different story. abc's gio benitez is on the scene in albany, new york. >> reporter: good morning. police say they've enhanced that video and talked to witnesses and now they firmly believe that the girls are lying. this morning three college students under fire for what's seen in the surveillance video. >> hi, i'd like to report the
7:36 am
fact that me and my friends were just jumped on a bus for being black. >> reporter: just after 1 a.m. on january 30th ariel agudio, alexis briggs and asha burwell all 20-year-old college students at the university at albany claiming they were the only black students on a city bus when they were called racial slurs and hit by several white males. they say they were surrounded by students and felt threatened. they fought back. two of the girls called 911. >> it was a racially fueled crime. we were three black girls jumped by like 20 white people. >> reporter: university staff and students immediately rallying behind the girls. but within hours of that rally, an instagram video posted online showing what looks like the girls approaching the men first. the university and city immediately launching an investigation. >> i ask all of us to not rush to judgment. >> reporter: leading to the release of this surveillance video from inside the bus that night.
7:37 am
witnesses on board telling police, it wasn't the men but the women who were the aggressors. >> it definitely looks like it wasn't what the girls said happened and looks the opposite. >> reporter: the girls maintain they are the victims. this week all three girls in court pleading not guilty to charges of third degree assault. civil rights activists now concerned about what this case could mean for future racial crimes. >> when there's another incident or similar incident, will the community believe them and that's troubling for many people. >> reporter: and two of the girls have also been charged with falsely reporting an incident. by the way we should tell you the video does not make clear exactly what happened. a jury may have to decide. rob and george. >> thank you. coming up teacher says she was forced to resign after a student stole private photos from her phone. she's speaking out about it next. and george clooney drops a hollywood bombshell. why the superstar says he may soon end his acting career and what he plans to do next. come on back.

with something called the insta-lift. it's a new fda cleared procedure that claims to give you some of the results of a more expensive face-lift for less money, and you don't have to undergo the knife. abc's deborah roberts is here with the details. good morning, deb. >> hey, robin. european women have been using this for years. it's called the silhouette insta-lift and just like those popular fillers, it's a quick lunchtime procedure, no surgery, and those who have had it say it lasts twice as long. not much bothers phyllis cunningham except lately looking at herself in the mirror. >> i don't like the look of my face. it needs a little pumping up or pulling back or just to give me a lift. >> reporter: the new jersey grandmom is about to turn 60 and wants to look as young as she feels, but she doesn't want a surgical face-lift. >> if i went under the knife, i'd have to go under general
8:15 am
anesthesia. >> reporter: so when phyllis heard a new long lasting nonsurgical face-lift popular in europe was not available in the states, she scheduled an appointment with chicago based cosmetic surgeon julius few. the insta-lift is an in and out office procedure with no general anesthesia for incisions. >> so you get to see the effect right away but without the recovery time. >> reporter: we watch as dr. few numbs phyllis' face inserting a series of tiny threaded biodegradable cones in and around her cheeks and jaw line made of the same material as medical stitches. the cones gently tighten the skin. how are you feeling? are you noticing it? are you feeling it? >> no, i'm numb. >> you really don't feel it? >> nope. >> reporter: less than half an hour later, phyllis gets to see her face. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. >> you already notice a difference? >> oh, yeah. there's nothing hanging here. >> yeah. >> reporter: here's phyllis before the procedure and after. >> just starting to show the signs of aging change. >> reporter: 57-year-old victoria frederick was similarly
8:16 am
thrilled with the result of her 30-minute face-lift. >> wow. to look at myself in the mirror i feel like i got ten years back. >> reporter: the insta-lift has potential side effects including swelling, nerve damage and a lopsided face. the cost of the procedure, about $3,000, a fraction of surgical face-lifts, which can run into the tens of thousands of dollars, and dr. few says the results last about 18 months. now phyllis says she loves looking at herself in the mirror. >> i look gorgeous. and i love it. >> she's pretty happy. since we saw her about three weeks ago, phyllis says her jaw line is smoother and she's more toned and she's thrilled. but, of course, it is early so we'll have to see how she progresses. remember, it's a fairly new procedure here in the states. only a handful of doctors trained to do it. and here's what the fuss is all about, robin, and, jen, you probably already know.
8:17 am
it's a teeny, tiny thread with little teeny bits of cones in here. they thread it under the skin. this is what the doctors say plumps up the skin and actually gives it, they say, a little bit more volume and makes it smoother. and this is what happens, and it lasts and eventually it breaks down because it's biodegradable. >> so it'll eventually break down. okay, deb. well, you bring in dr. jen ashton and you see that. you see the results. it looks very good. but what is the traditional face-lift? how do you compare the two? >> so, surgical face-lift is the gold standard but it might not be right for every woman or man because men are undergoing both, as well. so to compare them, let's look at them, you know, on a couple of parameters head-to-head. first of all, cost as deb said, this is a fraction of the cost, but it's not cheap. this is going to vary based on location and who does it. but $3,000 and potentially something that you might have to repeat every 18 months, you can rapidly get up to similar costs to a surgical face-lift. recovery time we heard. slim to none with this.
8:18 am
you know, several weeks for surgery, and then the time that it will last, this is not apples to apples. this is apples to oranges. you know, this might be right for one person. it's all about selecting the right patient candidate. >> but doesn't this fall under what is old is new again? weren't we talking about this in the '90s. >> so, we saw -- we did. we heard about this years ago, the threading technique. and as deb showed us, what's new here are these knots. now, what this is is this is called monofilament like fishing line, the iuds are made out of this and cones or knots in this material are thought to stimulate an inflammatory response, which then triggers collagen production, so if you've ever had stitches in your skin or surgery where you have a scar, if you feel that scar several weeks after surgery, how it feels hard, that's basically what's going on in the face. >> what are the side effects here? >> well, listen, any time you put a needle through the skin, you can have a small risk of infection. there are major nerves and blood
8:19 am
vessels in the face. if you hit one of those, you could have damage or bleeding. and with any cosmetic procedure, you can have an unsatisfactory cosmetic response and look in the mirror and say, not really thrilled with how it looks but most people are generally satisfied if your expectations are appropriate going in. >> and that's the key. your expectations have to be sort of like level here when you're looking at this. >> there are so many people tuning in and who we do a lot of segments on you're getting older. you feel good but you want to look good. >> you want to match how you feel. >> yeah. what are some of your suggestions? >> you know, if you talk about collagen production, prescription retinoid creams are easy to go and are effective. there are all kinds of laser treatments and techniques available which will stimulate collagen production. but, remember, when you talk about aging of the skin, it's superficial. it's collagen, and it's about volume, and this will firm, but it's not going to replace as much of the lost volume as things like filler does.
8:20 am
>> and it's something that's short term. i know that some of the celebrities before the red carpet. >> exactly. >> yeah. >> if you have a wedding or something special that you want to do. >> that's where it's becoming popular too for people who want to do that kind of thing. we'll see. it's very new here in the states so we'll see what happens. >> you don't need it, and, robin, you looked stunning on the red carpet so you definitely don't need it. >> you don't either. >> notice i gave you time to say that. >> thank you. >> they were wrapping but i was like -- let's get outside to rob in the meantime. thanks. rob. >> hey, robin, nobody out here needs a face-lift. 15 degrees. random couple from houston. random friends from houston. there you go. hang out when you get home where it's a lot warmer, 26 is what it feels like d.c. and 19 in columbus. going to be coal enough for snow with this little clipper copping through and could some accumulate, 1 po 3 inches widespread and richmond south of d.c. more si >> good morning, i am meteorologist mike nicco with the bay area forecast.

good morning. i'm abc7 news morning anchor natasha zouves. right now workers are still showing up -- shoring up a building in walnut creek and you could see why. there is a giant hole left behind after a high-speed chase. it ended with a car flying off interstate 680 and crashing upside down into this yoga studio. two people inside of that car now have major injuries. good morning, it is bunched up out there. the drive from tracy to dublin, 25 minutes. i think the 580 express lane is doing its thing. into concord looking good and 101 through san rafael into san francisco not bad at all. slow and go past the s.a.p. center with a slow drive from the 85 to 101.
8:28 am
8:29 am
welcome back. here is a look from the tut row tower cam. drizzle but dry by 9:00. isolated and scattered showered by 4:00 and drive by 7:00. saturday's storm a doozie. three on the scale and strong with heavy rain and gusty winds. natasha. >> thank you, mike. we'll have another update in just about 30 minutes and always on the news app and
8:30 am
abc7news.com. join, reggie, mike, sue and me week days from 4:30 to 7:00 ♪ if i go crazy :30 to 7:00 oh, i love this music today. welcome back to "gma." both batman and superman are featured in "ew" mag this week. the two superheroes each featuring their own cover. ben affleck, henry cavill, all the stars will be on "gma." looking forward to that movie. so, superman or batman? >> i go with batman. >> i can't choose yet. >> you can't choose? political. >> superman. >> batman. >> there we go. >> marciano. >> dressing up in costume. >> anything to wear tights. >> set the trap. you guys jumped right in. >> every time. it's so awesome. the other big movie we're looking forward comes out this weekend is "zootopia" starring
8:31 am
shakira as a singing gazelle. we're talking about that in just a little bit and will tell us how her 3-year-old son reacted to her song. >> i bet well. >> over to robin. >> you didn't ask but i'll go with batman because of robin. hey, that was easy. i'm on a roll. we have an important health headline. there are many different types of breast cancer, as you know. one is called triple negative breast cancer. you may never have heard of it unless you or someone you know was diagnosed with it. i had never heard of it until i was diagnosed in 2007, but today is triple negative breast cancer awareness day. we are shining a light on it with the help of our good friend, dr. kristi funk, angelina jolie's surgeon and the co-founder of the pink lotus breast center, and she joins us this morning from los angeles. always great to see you, dr. funk, and thank you so very much for this. as we said, there are many different types of breast cancer. this affects about 10%, 20%. can you just tell us exactly what triple negative is? >> sure. well, there are three receptors like antennas we look for on a
8:32 am
cancer cell. about 75% have estrogen and progesterone receptors, they hit the receptor and fuel the cancer to multiple fly and divide. the third is a growth factor found in 25%. but if your tumor lacks all three of these receptors, we term it triple negative. >> it's like you check, check, check, none of -- you can't check of the boxes so that is triple negative. who is most at risk for this particular type of breast cancer? >> the most prevalent population is a brca1 mutation carrier and african-american, latinas and women under 40. >> and why is it important to you, dr. funk, to bring attention to this, and, as we said, today is triple negative breast cancer awareness day. why is that so important? >> well, it's important because triple negatives when taken as a group have the worst survival rates of any other subtype of breast cancer. they have the highest recurrence rates and the worst survival rates with the mean recurrence at 2.8 years after diagnosis. >> yes, when you hear things
8:33 am
like that, and it's -- the recurrence, so what is the treatment? what is available right now? >> well, for the cancer in your breast, we treat that with surgery and radiation. but what about that rogue cell that might be flying around in your bloodstream? that's the real trigger that causes recurrence in an organ like liver or lung that you cannot live without so if you had a receptor, say, for estrogen we could target that receptor with tamoxifen. if you had a her-2, we have a drug for that but with triple negatives, it's like this naked cell flying around with no target on its back at all so our only recourse to sort of seek and destroy it is chemotherapy and once that's done, a triple negative cancer patient just sort of -- there's no pill to take. we just sort of sit back and hope and wait it doesn't recur. >> and it's really tricky, those first five years in particular, right, dr. funk? >> well, it's tricky, but if you make it to your fifth year anniversary with no sign of recurrence, there are high, high
8:34 am
hopes for the robin roberts in this world because it is a rare event for triple negatives to occur after five years. in fact, they now become the group of cancers that do the best with the longest survival. >> that is extremely encouraging and part of the reason why you wanted to join us. there's some work you've been doing, clinical research and just tell us the good news on this front. >> there's exciting news, so the pink lotus breast center in los angeles is launching the triple negative breast cancer trial today and it's soon to be nationwide. this is a test, a simple blood test aiming to detect recurrence easily and early at a point where we can intervene and still cure you. the blood test is one of two things. we look at nk view which is natural killer cells, they're a sign of immune function and the other one is called clear i.d. it looks at circulating tumor an early trial in london with just 55 patients showed when your natural killer cells drop and tumor cells go up, this will predict a recurrence 8 1/2
8:35 am
months prior to it being detectable by imaging like window for patients and doctors to strategize and maybe get at a cure before a deadly recurrence. >> oh, that is so key, and what do you want to say to those that are waking up this morning and they are concerned about their health, and they have been just diagnosed with this? what is your message to them? >> well, i'd love for you to contact us. just e-mail study @pinklotusbreastcenter.com and we will get you in touch with the people running this study and hopefully we can stave off that recurrence. >> i hope so. dr. funk, always a pleasure. thanks for your tireless efforts and the work that you're doing. >> thanks, robin. >> keep in touch. thank you. all right. let's get outside to rob. >> hey, robin, we are trying to warm up here. got a good crowd out here. hey, happy birthday to you. >> thank you. >> mom, daughter. what's on the plan today? >> our plan, just wanted to see robin. >> oh, robin. come outside and say happy birthday.
8:36 am
>> hi, robin. >> all right. well, happy birthday. and -- >> briyanka. >> bianca -- happy birthday to briyanka. all right, check it out, briyanka and gang, san francisco looking at rain, atmospheric river will bump it up. the hose is on. they need it. could see some flooding, though. 3 to 5 inches or more locally and some of this will eventually get down into southern good morning. i'm meteorologist mike nicco. scattered light showers today and tomorrow with temperatures in the low to mid-60s. now let's focus on the weekend because saturday storm is strong with flooding rain possible. >> this weathercast brought to you by your home stores. texas, we got seattle in the northwest. three sisters from seattle. sounds like a movie.
