"gma." ♪ out on the verge of the -- on the verge of greatness. steph curry's golden state warriors going for a history making win as another legend, kobe bryant, prepares to say good-bye to the game. the end of one era, the beginning of another right now. ♪ good morning, america. happy wednesday. what a night ahead in the nba. >> just minutes after kobe made his announcement that this was going to be his last game, you know, when he did this months ago, well, just minutes after that sold out. ticket prices for tonight's game shot up becoming some of the most expensive for a regular season game in sports history. >> yes, as george said history could be made tonight. steph curry and the warriors also have a chance to do it, to beat the record of michael jordan's chicago bulls team for the most wins in a regular season. >> what a season they are having. >> i'm going to go on record
7:02 am
i'll be tired tomorrow morning because i'll be up late so when you see the red eyes, got it. thank you, all. we'll begin, though, with the race for the white house and the battle for new york. a new poll showing donald trump with a huge lead. up more than 40 points. the primary now just six days away and trump's family making headlines in a town hall overnight. abc's jon karl is in syracuse, new york, with the latest. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. as he attempts to close the deal on the republican nomination, donald trump is moving closer to an all-out war with his own party. he has a huge lead in new york but bitterly complaining about republican primary rules accusing his own party of trying to tank his nomination. >> this is a dirty trick and i'll tell you why, the rnc, the republican national committee, they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this kind of crap to happen.
7:03 am
i can tell you that. >> reporter: he's upset about what happened last week in colorado especially which held a convention instead of an open election and awarded all of its delegates to ted cruz. we talked to trump about it backstage before his rally in rome, new york. you saw what chairman priebus said. these rules were set last year, nothing mysterious, nothing new. >> it's totally mysterious. in fact, the people running it don't know about it. no, it's a rigged system. >> reporter: there are rules. were you unprepared for this? you're not a professional politician. >> no, i'm not. i was ready for a democratic race meaning, you know, democracy and this is not democracy. this is not democracy at its finest i can tell you because i'm leading by millions of votes. >> reporter: in a cnn town hall meeting with his family, trump said straight up, the party leaders don't want him to get the nomination. >> you're saying you don't think the rnc wants you to get the nomination. >> no, i don't. i really don't. >> reporter: ted cruz says trump is just trying to bully the party and the delegates.
7:04 am
>> donald needs to stop threatening the voters. he needs to stop threatening the delegates. he is not a mobster. >> reporter: at the family town hall, trump's adult children and his wife melania tried to show the softer side of the gop front-runner. >> now you see this side and it's something we love doing because we love the man to death. >> whenever my father puts his heart and soul into something he goes full force. >> reporter: even his own family says he needs to act more presidential. >> how would you like him to be different? >> just to use nice language. >> better language. >> sometimes better language. >> he sometimes tell him to withhold some of that sort of fire. i also understand it and i think it's instinct. >> i'm capable of doing it. it's easy to do it. easier to do it than the way i behave right now. i have two more people i have to take out and -- >> reporter: republican party chairman reince priebus fired back overnight at trump with a
7:05 am
tweet saying, quote, nomination process known for a year and beyond. it's the responsibility of the campaigns to understand it. complaints now? give us all a break. george, i have never seen anything like it. a war of words between the party chairman and the person that is the front-runner right now for that party's nomination. >> yeah and reince priebus, it really is and priebus has been talking to trump a lot. he seems pretty fed up in that tweet right there. let's talk to matthew dowd right now. our political analyst. matthew, this war of words between the rnc chair and donald trump. at the same time you saw some of trump's best assets out there in that town hall meeting last night. >> well, yeah, as jon said it's unprecedented he's in a fight with the people he wants the nomination of. i actually thought last night was his best moment. in the campaign with his wife and his family there. they put on a great face and a great interview in the course of that and one of the things i've learned the last 20 years is people now don't just vote for
7:06 am
one person they vote for a family in the white house and they want to see the family as a unit and i think that showed very well for donald trump last night. >> he is going to have to pull his delegate campaign together to do a better job of getting these people on board. >> well, he has never in this process put together a real professional campaign that we have seen, ever seen before that it's not even close to what we've seen in the past before. i think donald trump understands that he probably gets to probably 1100 delegates, maybe 1200. how does he get the last 100? through a mechanism of mechanics and a real campaign and he's in a hurry to put that together. >> big news from the speaker of the house paul ryan making calls to draft him at the convention. he finally put it to rest. >> i do not want, nor will i accept the nomination for our party. if no candidate has a majority on the first ballot, i believe that you should only choose from a person who is actually participated in the primary.
7:07 am
count me out. i should not be considered, period, end of story. >> now, that seems about as shermanesque as you can get, matt. >> that's pretty direct statement. i think he figured out, you know, george, i'd like to go see the pope and visit with the pope but i'm not going to get an invitation. paul ryan wasn't going to get an invitation. to be the nominee. a better chance kobe will play next year than he will be the nominee. >> thank you, matthew dowd. over to robin. >> that's our matt, george. now to that massive storm battering the south. baseball-size hail and flooding and more violent weather is on the way. ginger is back and has the latest. good morning, ging. >> happening this morning and look at this large hail this time in san antonio, texas, the hand shredding people's blind from the inside to outside and look at this. brand-new out of jackson, mississippi, from the heavy rains that moved through. record rainfall near 5 inches. the roof collapses at that school, the water rushing in, rushing outside.
7:08 am
fortunately no one hurt there. flood watches this morning, still san antonio, texas, having some big issues, but from pensacola back through parts of mississippi, southern alabama watching the rainfall. i have more on that robin coming up on how much rainfall along the gulf coast in a couple minutes. >> all right, ginger, thank you. now to the big health alert about the zika virus. the house now taking a big step passing a bill to speed up zika drug research as health officials say americans and at least 30 states could potentially be at risk. joining us now from bethesda, maryland, dr. anthony fauci, the director of the national institute for allergy and infectious disease at the national institutes of health. thank you very much for your time this morning. i know you spoke recently at that white house briefing where the cdc announced that the zika virus could be scarier than first thought. what does that exactly mean, sir? >> well, there's several things. one, it's obviously spreading, you know, rather rapidly. we're seeing cases that are
7:09 am
travel related cases coming to the united states. we haven't seen local cases yet. but when you look at the ability of this virus to destroy tissue of the brain and neurological tissue, that its ability to cause damage to the neurological system is really getting rather concerning, even more so than we thought originally. >> sir, does it go beyond pregnant women here and how close is there to finding a treatment? >> i think when we talk about treatment, that's something that is probably in the distance, in the sense of it's an acute viral infection. we really need to think about prevention, and one of the ways you can prevent obviously it is to develop a vaccine and that's something we have on very much of a fast track to try and begin some studies, early studies of vaccine candidates that we have lined up. the other is mosquito control. not only controlling mosquitoes, killing mosquitoes, preventing their breeding but also protecting pregnant women with
7:10 am
things like making sure we can avoid mosquito contact. you know we have the cdc recommendation that people in the united states who are pregnant thinking of becoming pregnant going to these areas should really not travel to the involved areas. >> the president asked for $1.9 billion in funding last february as we were reporting the house is now finally acting upon it. what do you need, doctor, to be able to properly face this? >> we need the money to begin and continue the programs we've already started with the programs now. we can't delay, but the money that was asked for is really absolutely necessary for us to get the job done. >> all right. dr. fauci, thank you very much for your tireless efforts. we appreciate it very much. >> good to be with you. of course, adding to the growing concerns summer will be here before we know it. >> it's real eye opening to see that red spread across the u.s. map. there are new developments this morning in the shooting death of will smith. the super bowl champ gunned down

7:12 am
instagram, i witnessed a close friend shot to death over an expletive fender bender. hayes' defense attorney saying his client wasn't the aggressor. will smith's father speaking out for the first time since his son's death to our affiliate wtvd. >> he shot him in the back and then he walked up on him and shot him again and then when his wife started screaming we have babies, he shot her. please tell me where that was not murder. >> reporter: smith's father, attempting to forgive his son's killer. >> do i forgive the gentleman that shot my son? yes, i do. am i going to forget him, hell no. >> reporter: hayes has been charged with second degree murder. he has not yet entered a plea but another charge for shooting racquel smith is pending and a further investigation recovering from nonlife-threatening injuries. >> thanks very much. what a story. >> it really is, george. now to an incredible survival story. a 72-year-old woman stranded for nine days in the arizona

7:14 am
together for body warmth. >> reporter: for nine days search teams come up empty. a few days later searchers spot queenie and then this a help signal made from rocks and sticks. >> the ground searchers found my note, please, please help. i need it now. >> reporter: finally a helicopter finds rodgers, remarkably not just alive after nine days but able to walk to the chopper all on her own. >> age does not necessarily mean inability. it can mean wisdom. >> reporter: for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> what she said i love. now to amy with the morning's other top stories starting with some news about the fbi. >> that's right. we have new details now about how the fbi was able to break into the cell phone that belonged to the san bernardino shooter.
