7:06 am
>> reporter: primetime seeming to go off without a hitch, but earlier, chaos. [ chanting ] >> point of order. point of order. >> reporter: it started when delegates were denied an opportunity to vote on the rules. some saw it as their last chance to take the nomination from trump. >> you are ignoring delegates who have been elected to this convention. >> reporter: but their call rejected. >> all those in favor, please signify by saying aye. opposed? nay. the ayes have it. >> reporter: the anti-trump forces failed. but the protests a sign some in the gop refuse to unify behind trump. now, back to that melania trump speech. she says she wrote most of the speech and overnight the campaign putting out this statement saying in writing her beautiful speech melania's team of writers took notes on her life's inspirations and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking.
7:07 am
melania's immigrant experience and love for america shone through in her speech which made it such a success. as george mentioned at the top, paul manafort, the chairman of the trump campaign, is denying that melania trump stole any section of her speech last night. robin and george? >> okay, tom. thanks very much. let's talk about this now with matthew dowd and donna brazile. let me begin with you, matt. you've seen the response from the trump campaign. i spoke with a couple of their advisers overnight. they say, listen, this was 7% to 8% of the speech. it will blow over. she was a big hit last night. how big a deal is it? is someone going to have to take the fall? >> it's interesting. she said in last night's speech, with any trump atear ffairaffai contest, there is excitement and drama. she added to it in the course and the aftermath of this. look, this will be problematic and make it look like the convention is already beginning to be mismanaged in the course of this. when donald trump needs to have a moment where he actually gets a bump from this convention it's going to be problematic to get a bump from the convention. though i think something else is going to happen tonight that we'll probably be talking about tomorrow morning.
7:08 am
in the course of this it is a big problem. >> something will definitely probably happen. what do you think the democrats' response will be to melania's speech, donna? >> first of all we want to applaud her. after all, michelle obama is adorable. she's phenomenal. and the fact that melania would, you know, take many of her words, some passages 22 out of the 26 words in at least two, you know what, that's great. lift up -- lift the country up. i thought it was great. it was a positive speech. >> how much irony is in your voice right now? >> a lot. but -- >> it's the highest form of flattery, isn't it? >> it was a positive speech and she looked great. she sounded great. and the fact that she was inspired by michelle obama's example of 2008. you know what? donald trump may be inspired by president obama of 2008 and take some of his words, lift them up. why not?
7:09 am
>> the hope is right. you think basically they'll be able to move beyond it, at some point, something else is going to come up. but break down overall what we saw during the course of the day yesterday. did they do what they needed to? >> the thing we talked about coming into this is can they be disciplined enough in the course of this week to get through one big message that the american public feels? right now, after day one, they haven't been disciplined enough to do that in the course of this. i think it looks a bit mismanaged. and the thing that i was struck by more than anything last night is their number one only real rising republican star at the convention ended up speaking to a basically an empty hall, joni ernst, the senator, and to -- not -- out of primetime. that was a big problem. >> so that was yesterday. day two, today, what do you expect? >> a lot more acrimony, a lot of perhaps disgruntled delegates who will probably try to express themselves one more time when mr. trump's name is placed into nomination. a lot of red meat, more red meat than outback steakhouse. and who knows? we might get some, i don't know, some joy out of this. >> you know what i think for sure is happening today is that
7:10 am
they are scrubbing donald jr.'s speech and tiffany trump's speech to make sure there's not a single word in there that somebody thinks could be plagiarized. >> you two, we'll hear from you. >> a lot of joy here. >> donna brazile. >> i love michelle obama. now i love melania trump also. >> we move on to hillary clinton's bold move addressing the naacp calling out donald trump. as the republicans, of course, hold their convention right down the road. a time when opposing candidates usually tone down their attacks. cecilia vega is on the trail there in cincinnati. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: yeah, they usually tone down the attacks, robin, good morning to you. they often sit this week out. not this year, not hillary clinton. the republicans may be center stage, but hillary clinton isn't giving up the spotlight. >> donald trump demeans women. donald trump wants to ban an entire religion from entering our country. >> reporter: not far from cleveland, clinton campaigning in cincinnati at the naacp convention blasting donald trump for skipping the annual
7:11 am
gathering which past republicans have attended. >> donald trump cannot become president of the united states. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: on day one of the republican convention, clinton made two stops in ohio. >> we're going to hear a lot about taking our country backwards because that's really what they mean. >> reporter: her army of supporters taunting trump too, clinton aides in their own counterconvention camped out near the convention center launching rapid-fire responses to republican attacks. a pro-clinton superpac targeting cleveland with these ads. linking trump to former kkk leader david duke and her campaign releasing at least five anti-trump videos in just one day, using everyone from children -- >> that means we stand against you. >> reporter: -- to the chaos on the convention floor. >> the podium has been abandoned. i've never seen anything like this. >> reporter: -- in their counterpunch. and just this morning the
7:12 am
campaign released another video this one slamming donald trump on the economy. and that is the theme of today's rnc. hillary clinton's team has two dozen staffers there, on the ground, right there next to you guys in cleveland, george. all of this for this big counterconvention that they're launching on their own. >> no question about that. i'm sure we will see republicans from philadelphia as well. let's get more from jon karl. i want to begin on picking up what donna was talking about. we saw that uproar on the floor yesterday. that chaos created in part by those never trump forces. you told me you think they are completely killed after being shut down yesterday. but they're likely to try to come back today. and there still is some unifying to be done at this convention. >> reporter: oh, absolutely, george. that was a loud and raucous rebellion on the floor. and you saw the colorado delegation at one point, actually get up and walk out. i've never seen that at a republican convention.
7:13 am
they got up and they walked out. they did, of course, come back by the time primetime was happening. they will try to make noise. they will try to make their voices heard. there is clearly a minority, a loud minority but it's a minority on the floor that is simply not happy with donald trump as their nominee. >> as we enter the second day we know in our own polling, we show about a four-point hillary clinton lead coming into the convention. but let's take a look at the electoral map. and a sense of what donald trump needs to do if he's going to start to catch up. >> reporter: george, at abc what we have done a ratings of all of the states. if you look at the map now, the states that are in red are those solidly donald trump or leaning donald trump. states in blue, hillary clinton or leaning hillary clinton, we list right now at this point only six pure toss-up states. so to give you an idea of how tough the map is for donald trump, he could win the big ones -- he could win florida, he could win virginia, he could win ohio. and he'd still come up short. he would still need to win somewhere else, perhaps iowa and new hampshire, so this is a map that at the very beginning of
7:14 am
the race goes solidly against donald trump. hillary clinton, all she would have to do is win the state of florida. >> yeah, very little margin -- room for error for donald trump right there. jon karl, thanks very much. george, we turn to the latest on the ambush in baton rouge that left three police officers dead. investigators now say there is no question that the officers were targeted. abc's steve osunsami has the latest. >> reporter: the images police are sharing this morning from surveillance video show 29-year-old gavin long dressed in all black and a face mask carrying one of the semi-automatic rifles police recovered as he guns down cops. >> these officers were intentionally targeted. >> reporter: police say he used the rifle and a pistol to ambush police at a spot where officers from different agencies fuel up and wash their cars. they found the third rifle in his rented white chevy. >> when he came back around these two baton rouge police officers were right here standing, he shot both of them. >> reporter: investigators say he ignored civilians as he searched for officers. >> i'm hit.
7:15 am
i'm by the car wash. i'm hit. left arm. >> reporter: police say deputy brad garafola died a hero after running to help a wounded officer caught in the gunfire. both were killed. this morning 41-year-old baton rouge corporal nicholas tulier is in the icu fighting for his life. ♪ children out there hurting >> reporter: at vigils overnight families mourned the three officers who were killed. investigators say long posted this video online praising the dallas shooter who killed five police. >> with the brother killing the police, you get what i'm saying, that's -- it's justice. >> reporter: in a touching moment, the father of one of the fallen police officers shared a hug with the aunt of alton sterling, whose death at the hands of police lit the match. she tells us her family is calling for peace. >> i don't condone what happened with those -- with what happened with those officers. i think that's a horrible thing and my condolences go out to the families. we want to keep the peace. >> reporter: this is the gas station where the bullets were flying.
7:16 am
local police come here to fill up. there is a police officer here right now. the fbi is now working with investigators and this city is planning the police funerals. robin? >> all right, steve, thank you very much. we'll go back to new york now. amy, say good morning to amy, michael, and lara. and amy, i know you have the morning's other top headlines. good morning, all. >> that's right, good morning, guys. we know that isis has now claimed responsibility for an attack on a train in southern germany. police say a 17-year-old afghan refugee armed with an ax and a knife injured five people including a family of four, yelling god is great before he was eventually shot and killed by police. investigators say they found an isis flag in the attacker's room and a note indicating he may have been self-radicalized. the victims survived. but two of them are in critical condition this morning. turkey is formally asking the u.s. to hand over a muslim cleric it blames for organizing friday's coup attempt. fethullah gulen lives in pennsylvania. the u.s. has requested information about turkey's

time now for our "big board." our team of insiders standing by with more on today's top stories. first up -- the olympics bombshell. russia rocked by a doping scandal. the world anti-doping agency releasing a report confirming allegations of widespread state-sponsored doping of russian athletes across 28 olympic sports. pressure now growing to discipline russia ahead of the rio games. and summer sanders, former olympic swimmer and yahoo! olympics contributor joins us now. summer, after this report was released the ioc said they will, quote, not hesitate to take the toughest sanctions against any individual or organization implicated. this is condemning allegations, strong condemnation. what's in that report? >> i know. well, i have to admit this is the first report i've ever read about doping. but i did consult a guy who's read a few, travis tygart, the head of the u.s. anti-doping agency.
7:42 am
and we agree that the two alarming parts of this report were the fact that it went up so high. it went up to the deputy sports minister and fsb, russia's security service. those are like the cabinet member and secret service involved in such an incredible doping scandal. and the word he uses often is that this is mind-blowing. and i agree. >> it seems to be and also, summer, russian president vladimir putin, he responded. he said "doping has no place in sport. we will thoroughly root out this evil" while implying that the u.s. is behind this report. now, in your opinion do you think that russia should be banned from the games in rio? >> you know, michael, i am glad i don't have to make this decision. and i should add that the ioc is supposed to make their decision today. so we will all learn, but as an olympic athlete who fully believes in the power of that spirit and those rings, our priority is to keep our athletes safe and to have a clean and fair level of play. and to do that, you have to send a message. so i think they should be banned. but my heart goes out to those few that are playing by the rules and are clean.
7:43 am
and i'm hoping that they have an opportunity to -- for their voice to be heard and for them to fight for their spot in the olympics. >> a fair statement of you because they not only have forensic evidence but interviews where people are admitting it, they have e-mails. i mean, there's a lot of evidence against russia. >> a lot. we'll keep our eye open to see what comes out of it later today. thank you, summer. and now to that new report from the american academy of pediatrics getting backlash urging doctors to avoid taking an abstinence-only approach when speaking to teen patients about sex. the recommendation is coming under fire by parenting groups who say it's not a pediatrician's place to discuss such matters. and we brought in our guy to discuss it with us, dr. richard besser. dr. besser, i have one question for you. the aap is stepping up and this is tricky territory here because you have parents who say i don't want you to have that conversation. but then you're being told to have that conversation as a doctor.
7:44 am
does it put the doctor against the parent? >> well, you know, i hope not. what they're saying is that pediatricians should be talking about sex in a way that's age and developmentally appropriate. 1 in 3 teens say their doctors aren't talking to them about sex at all. and when they say we should talk about sex it's not just abstinence. we know from school-based programs that abstinence-only education does not delay the age at which kids start to have sex. we have to talk about abstinence. but we have to talk about also contraception and sexual responsibility and gender and sexual consent. you know, when you look at what kids are learning in school, fewer than half require sex education and fewer than that require that the information is medically accurate. >> and 88% of teen pregnancies are unplanned. those are the cold facts right there. dr. besser, thanks for being with us. and up next we have kanye west and kim kardashian in hot water potentially facing some charges after posting video of a phone conversation between taylor swift and kanye on snapchat. swift is accusing them of
7:45 am
character assassination and sunny hostin joins us live. sunny, thanks for being with us. i want to first take a look at this snapchat that's stirring up all this controversy. >> go with whatever line you think is better. it's obviously really tongue in cheek either way. and i really appreciate you telling me about it. it's really nice. >> oh, yeah i just had a responsibility to you as a friend. >> all right, so taylor is upset that kanye used a derogatory term when referring to her in one of his lyrics. but he says she gave him consent and the video is proof of that. but you know what? kanye may be in trouble for taping this whole thing. explain why. >> that's right because in california -- california is a two-consent state. a two-party consent state. that's what we call it and that means, it's illegal to tape someone without their knowledge or consent. it's so illegal that you could spend up to a year in jail or even pay a fine for it. >> well, i'm curious, sunny, what would have to happen for charges to be filed? and if so, what could they be facing? a mean, a year in jail and is
7:46 am
there anything else? >> well, it's interesting. yesterday taylor tweeted that kanye secretly recorded their call implying she didn't provide her consent. and tmz is reporting that she's considering filing a police report. and so if she does that, a prosecutor certainly could take that case and it's pretty winnable in california. but if i'm her lawyer, michael, i tell her to shake it off. >> shake it off. well, you heard kanye say, you know what, i have a responsibility as a friend. i don't think they're friends anymore. all right, thank you, sunny. dr. besser, thank you and summer, thank you so much, as well. >> all right. coming up in two minutes the stars taking over the republican convention, stay with us.

course, on that huge speech this thursday night. robin and george, back to you in cleveland. >> all right, thank you for that conversation, lara. back now with us, matt dowd and donna brazile, so let's get your take on what we've heard from ivanka trump. i mean a very impressive young woman. >> she is a rock star. i mean, i haven't seen this much talent in a father-daughter since miley cyrus and billy ray cyrus. i would put my chips on her. not only the present but the future. she's not a republican. she's a registered independent. i can see -- >> she couldn't vote for her dad in the primary. >> no, she couldn't vote for her dad. i can see her running for office in new york as an independent sometime in the future. she's that kind of star. >> you actually have experience in this. donna brazile, as well, george w. bush worked for his father back in the '80s and gave him a lot of training, as well. but is there a danger here, donna, you bring your family in so close and you give them so much responsibility and there's no one to blame when something goes wrong. >> well, you know, when you have kids like donald trump, and i've gotten to know three of his kids, i think they are good
8:19 am
people. they're a natural. they are warm, they are genuine and they are authentic. in many ways they are kids that when you look at their dad, you're like, really, because they are inclusive. she's working very hard with district officials to rebuild the old post office in d.c. i think her job this week is to give us those stories that we won't hear, you know, the bond, i mean, i bonded with my dad over church and the new orleans saints. >> right. >> what makes this man such a great father? i think she's going to be incredible. >> we're talking about the father but we're not talking about the mothers here. >> i think you have to give a lot of credit to donald trump in the course of this to have such wonderfully successful kids and sometimes we forget about the mom. ivana in the course of this who obviously helped raise and did in large part raise the kids and a testament to donald trump and ivana how they turned out. >> we'll see don jr. from the podium tonight.

>> yeah. >> we'll be right back. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients... ...who've had no prior treatment. it transformed treatment as the first cure that's... ...one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients... ...can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. harvoni is a simple treatment regimen that's been prescribed to more than a quarter of a million patients. tell your doctor if you've had a liver transplant, other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or any other medical conditions, and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you.
