>> and all those tv hits of our childhood, so many of that for us. here at the "q" last night, the trump kids in the stoplight put their father over the top. then don junior and tiffany both took the stage to make the case for their dad. >> and their dad donald trump was not there in person but he did appear via video screen and you know he enjoys being on twitter so he tweeted this just moments ago. congratulations to my children, don and tiffany, on having done a fantastic job last night. i am very proud of you! >> the whole trump family stars of this convention so far and eric trump is going to be here. he speaks tonight along with the vp candidate mike pence, they're center stage. right now tom llamas starts of us with highlights from last night. >> reporter: electric moments out here on the convention floor last night. tonight, former rivals senator ted cruz and newt gingrich will speak. this, as donald trump makes his way back to cleveland for running mate, indiana governor mike pence's big address. >> it is my honor to throw
donald trump over the top with the delegate count tonight with 89 delegates and another 6 delegates for john kasich. congratulations, dad, we love you. >> reporter: overnight, the republican party officially nominating donald trump to be their candidate for president. >> today has been a very, very special day. watching my children put me over the top. >> reporter: his son don junior proclaiming the new york vote count pushing trump over the top. ♪ >> reporter: i asked trump's eldest son about the moment. >> i tell you other than maybe the birth of my children it was the coolest thing i've ever done. i mean, it's surreal, totally intense. >> reporter: later in the night, don junior would take the stage. >> when people told him it was impossible for a boy from queens
to go to manhattan and take on developers in the big city rather than give up, he changed the skyline of new york. >> reporter: a son telling his father's story and promoting the idea only a businessman understands how to solve the country's problems. >> that president can only be my mentor, my best friend, my father, donald trump. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: new jersey governor chris christie, a close friend and adviser to trump, also giving a rousing speech symbolically prosecuting a case against hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton, the charge of putting herself ahead of america, guilty or not guilty. >> all: guilty! >> reporter: christie working the crowd into a frenzy, chants of "lock her up" breaking out. >> all: lock her up! >> reporter: our terry moran asking christie about the chapter on the convention floor. >> do you think that's a good thing for american politics when political disagreements result in basically a crowd becoming a mob saying lock her up?
>> come on, now. you know, this is such an overstatement on your part. yeah, i think conventions are supposed to be fun. we're having a good time tonight but it's based on her conduct, like i said. >> reporter: there were some tender moments, donald trump's daughter tiffany delivering a heartfelt speech, her mother marla maples watching from backstage. >> my dad is a natural born encourager. in person my father is so friendly, so considerate, so funny and so real. >> reporter: but some sibling rivalry at play. eric trump's wife telling me her husband will have the best speech. how is your speech coming? >> it's great. >> are you nervous? >> he has the best speech. >> i'm excited. she's a little impartial. >> a little biased. >> reporter: so, the buildup is on for eric trump's speech. one more note about last night, there was a brief social media frenzy when a line from donald trump jr.'s speech was shown to have appeared in "american conservative" article earlier.
now, it turns out that the writer of that article actually helped out don junior with his speech. robin. >> all right, tom, thank you very much. and now to the controversy that still surrounds melania trump's convention speech and those accusations that she plagiarized michelle obama's words in 2008. abc's jonathan karl has the latest for us. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. while two of the trump children sang their father's praises last night, the trump campaign is still dealing with fallout from those remarks by melania trump. the moment melania trump finished her primetime speech monday night, it was all smiles on stage. but within hours, her strong performance was overshadowed by reports that portions of her 15-minute speech bore striking similarities to first lady michelle obama's 2008 convention speech. several phrases echoed almost word for word. >> both: you work hard for what you want in life. >> that your word is your bond, that you do what you say you're
going to do? >> that your word is your bond and you do what you say. >> the only limits to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them. >> the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them. >> reporter: on the convention floor some delegates said heads should roll. it's a pretty big mistake? >> it's a huge mistake and it's an embarrassment for mrs. trump. it's an embarrassment for the campaign. >> reporter: trump's recently fired campaign manager agreed. >> whoever wrote this speech should be held accountable, should be fired. >> reporter: the trump campaign insists the speech's similarities were not signs of plagiarism, just similar themes. >> comfortable that the words that she used are words that were personal to her. >> reporter: overnight, the late-night comics had a field day. >> was melania trump, she gave this -- she gave the speech of michele obama's life last night. >> reporter: and the
#famousmelaniatrumpquotes, trended online, joking about melania making up other famous phrases like you can't handle the truth. luke, i am your father and i have a dream. the white house refused to say whether or not the speech was plagiarized but did encourage reporters to look into how it was written. >> as relates to mrs. trump's speech i'll let all of you weigh in on that, try to learn more about how exactly it was written. >> reporter: the trump campaign says that nobody is going to get fired over this controversy. and i am told that it was a family friend that helped write those controversial passages which may help explain why nobody is going to get fired. as for michelle obama she has had no comment on any of this. george. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. i'm here with the chair of the trump campaign, paul manafort. thanks for joining us again this morning. you're probably sick about talking about this melania trump
speech but, as jon karl said it's probably done by a family friend and that's why no one whether be held accountable. >> we really don't know who it was done by. as far as we're concerned the speech was melania's speech. we're talking about 50 words out of 1,400 and the thoughts are part of the speech but the speech itself talks about her immigrant status, her love of country, her love of husband, these are her stories. these are her messages. what she communicated to the american people monday night is a genuine message from her heart and as far as we're concerned that's the end of it. >> that's the end of it. don junior's speech, one of the speechwriters wrote that but have you figured out how to get a program to prevent this from happening again. >> we have a program. that's why every other word i use is blanked out. >> we saw the tweet from donald trump, he was happy with how it went? >> he was very happy with how it went. it was one of the highest rated speeches of the convention so far. what we're very happy about is the speeches that we put onto the program that we wanted to
score points on communicating to the american people all have scored very highly. melaina's speech. rudy giuliani's speech, several of the speeches on the first night from some of the americans whose lives have been affected by policies of the obama/clinton administration, and then last night, donald trump jr.'s speech and chris christie's speech. >> let's talk about chris christie's speech. because you saw the crowd go to their feet with that chant "lock her up." is that what the delegates here think, that hillary clinton should be in jail? >> yeah. >> is that what you think? >> i think what the people in this hall feel is that she should be prosecuted for alleged crimes that the fbi director sort of listed her clearly and then chose -- >> chose not to prosecute her but they believe she should be in jail. >> yes, there's a whole -- when you start with the secret meeting on the tarmac two days before an investigation in the fbi, two days before a whitewash of it, and then one day before the justice department says, okay, we don't even have to look into this matter.
it creates a pattern. >> do you think bill clinton affected this investigation? >> we feel that that was not just a happening -- meeting to talk about golf and grandchildren, no. >> and that influenced the decision of the fbi director? >> i think that that probably communicated information that was going to be helpful to her in her testimony saturday. >> that's quite a charge. >> that's how we feel. >> in the speeches so far of this campaign what we haven't heard too much of is what we heard from mr. trump throughout the primaries -- nothing about the muslim ban, nothing about a wall paid by mexico, nothing about scrapping trade agreements. are we going to hear those issues from donald trump tomorrow night? >> look, the purpose of this convention is to do some things that haven't been done during the course of the campaign. i mean, in the campaign primaries he was competing against 16 other republicans and his goal was to separate his vision from theirs and clearly he was very successful at doing that. at the convention this week, we're trying to show other parts of his personality, like, some of which you heard in the speeches of his wife and his daughter and son and we'll hear more of tonight. we feel that the american people don't know all of donald trump.
they don't know the personal side of him. they don't know -- really they know he is a businessman but they don't understand in business he's used his abilities not to just create great empires but to treat people who have never had chances in life to opportunities. >> so none of those signature issues tomorrow night? >> i didn't say none of those signature issues tomorrow night. as you know in a speech to accept the convention nomination you lay out your vision for the campaign. by the time he lays out his vision for the campaign we hope we've laid a picture of the candidate who's broader than just a candidate for president -- he's a father, a compassionate human being, a successful businessman, so all those pieces will wrap together and then he summarizes it all in his vision. >> two nights to go. thanks for coming in this morning. >> thanks, george. good to be here. >> all right, gentlemen, thank you very much. let's bring in our political team, matt dowd and donna brazile waiting to weigh in. let's pick up on day two. it seemed to be more anti-clinton than pro-trump. they were talking about chris
christie's speech really got the crowd going. was it an effective strategy? >> well, i think the second night was a much more effective program than the first night because the second night was actually on time and things were delivered in the moments they wanted to deliver them. i think the difficulty with this convention, and i think the democratic convention coming up, but especially this one, is donald trump is a very defined figure and it's going to be hard to redefine him in any real way so i think the campaign decided that the only way they can win this race is to talk about hillary clinton. >> but you saw just there you heard from mr. manafort, donna, that they are going to be trying to redefine him over the next couple of days. will democrats let him do it? >> well, they've tried to pivot, george, as you well know for two months, and donald trump has been unable to pivot with a teleprompter or without a teleprompter. last night what we had, i believe, was a night where they threw the kitchen sink at hillary clinton. they still haven't built what i believe to be a bigger tent for donald trump to grow his campaign, expand his reach to the american people. but last night i think will go down in history as the night
that an unconventional anti-establishment candidate took over one of the major political parties. >> amazing situation to me. this is -- and it also feels in this hall like an arranged marriage. it feels like there is a whole bunch part of the establishment. garry marshall passed away and took a play from hollywood to the tv series called "the odd couple." you feel that way here. you feel like this is an odd couple that's been matched up and they have to figure out how to bind it together. >> we'll be talking to eric trump coming up in our next half hour. you speak about garry marshall. we are celebrating him, passing away overnight after an amazing career famous for making america laugh. abc's chris connelly has a look at his impact on hollywood and the world. >> reporter: as a writer, director and producer, in tv and the movies for over half a century, garry marshall made actors funnier and made audiences laugh. ♪ sunday monday happy days >> hey, observe. whoa.
♪ schlameal schlamazel hazzen pfeffer incorporated ♪ >> the hardest person i ever talked with most is my sister penny on "laverne and shirley," you know. okay, well, look at that tomorrow but penny used to come to my house at night and say, i got to fix the second act. >> you would have to hide from our own sister. >> yes, for eight years for "laverne and shirley." >> there's only one fair way to settle this. >> fine by me. >> aaagh! ♪ >> hey, don't take away my gusto. ah, help me, i'm melting. i'm melting. >> reporter: by the '80s and '90s, marshall was flourishing as a film director. >> i don't want you to get too excited. it's only a loan. >> oh!
>> i love you. i'll never leave you again. >> i'll never let you go. you're my annie and you always will be. >> man overboard is kissing woman overboard. >> we are gathered here today. >> no. >> where is she going? >> don't. >> lock the doors. >> reporter: his ability to assemble those star-filled casts an example of the respect and affection so many in hollywood felt for him. garry marshall died tuesday at the age of 81. for "good morning america," chris connelly, abc news, new york. >> it just goes on and on and people at home, oh, that's right, he did that one, he did that one. >> the ones you forget about, "dick van dyke." "i love lucy." just incredible. >> thanks for the laughs. amy has more on the other top headlines. good morning, everyone. >> good morning, guys. yes, he will be so, so missed but we begin with the headlines this morning and another city mourning the loss of a police officer killed in the line of duty.

t.j. is on the loose and he is. he is around here so that's ahead. let's go back to new york. all right, thank you, robin, and, you know, "ghostbusters" star leslie jones, so viciously attacked on twitter, did this site do enough to protect her? we'll get into that. and guys, get ready for this. it's donald trump versus queen. the band is upset he used their song when he walked out with it earlier this week and they're curious. see if he can do it again tomorrow night. that's coming up in our big board. >> how will he top it? >> big discussion about that. so, back to you, george and robin. >> and we'll see how he comes out tomorrow night. but right now that fox news bombshell, chief roger ailes negotiating an exit from the network after those sexual harassment allegations and now reports that anchor megyn kelly told investigators that ailes made unwanted advances toward her too. abc's rebecca jarvis outside fox news headquarters in new york. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, george. and this morning, two newspapers
owned by the same company as fox reporting that a roger ailes exit is imminent amid those allegations coming out reportedly from megyn kelly that she too was sexually harassed. this report from "the new york post." what the fox, dramatic shake-up at top news network. this morning, reports that roger ailes, the head of fox news and one of the most powerful men in television may soon be out of a job. according to a newly released article in "new york" magazine, megyn kelly, one of the network's biggest stars. >> welcome to "the kelly file," everyone. i'm megyn kelly. >> reporter: told investigators that ailes made unwanted sexual advances toward her about ten years ago when she was a correspondent. >> for her to level these allegations is devastating against ailes. >> reporter: attorneys for ailes firing back overnight, telling abc news the 76-year-old has never sexually harassed megyn kelly. 21st century fox denying ailes
has been fired tweeting "roger is at work. the review is ongoing." the possibility of an ailes departure comes on the heels of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by gretchen carlson. the former "fox & friends" anchor claiming ailes sabotaged her career because she refused his sexual advances, allegations he has vigorously denied. carlson posting this video online tuesday. >> hi, everyone, i want to support all women who have been victims of sexual harassment. >> reporter: following carlson's allegations, more than a dozen fox news personalities have come forward publicly defending ailes, leaving some wondering if ailes leaves, will the network's biggest stars follow suit? >> roger ailes orchestrated a pr campaign and that's another thing that rupert murdoch's lawyers are looking at perhaps that was meant to silence and pressure women not to come forward. >> reporter: an attorney for ailes telling me overnight there have been lots of proposals, lots of discussions going back and forth, but there is no deal at this point for an exit
agreement regarding roger ailes. george. >> okay, rebecca, thanks very much. let's bring in our chief legal analyst dan abrams for more on this right now. maybe no deal but this suit was just filed two weeks ago, already negotiating an exit. that didn't take long. >> no, and, look, a source close to the investigation tells me that part of the reason for that is that megyn kelly's alleged to these investigators multiple incidents of harassment and it's not just about -- >> multiple? >> -- megyn kelly. because the source tells me that multiple fox news talent, women both current and/or former have come forward to allege possible harassment by roger ailes, and that's why this is moving so quickly is, because it's so clear to the owners now that something needs to be done. >> but if that's true, if there are multiple allegations from megyn kelly, multiple allegations from other correspondents, how could he get, i don't know, $40 million in severance and a consulting
contract? >> that's a business decision, right? that's a decision by twentieth century fox that they'll have to fight him legally so, if they were to fire him and say you're not going to get anything, he would sue, as he said publicly he said i didn't harass these women. i didn't harass gretchen carlson. i didn't harass megyn kelly, and then there would be a fight with him, so, for them, this isn't going to end up being sort of principal decision. it's going to be a business decision and if in the end they decide it is easier and cleaner for them to settle this, then they will. they may take the position, look, we're not going to make a judgment here about whether we think roger ailes harassed anyone. what we are going to do is try to end this by reaching some sort of settlement. >> real quickly, dan, what does this mean for gretchen carlson's suit? >> well, look, even if they settle with gretchen carlson, she sued roger ailes personally, and so that lawsuit will likely continue and the more women who she can get to potentially come forward, potentially the
stronger her lawsuit could become. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. all right, and standing by patiently through all this, joining us now exclusively is ahead of his big speech tonight, donald trump's son eric, a close adviser to his father. >> good being here, robin. >> thank you for getting up here and sitting with us like that. what was that moment like last night? you're there with your siblings, it becomes official that your father is the republican nominee for president of the united states. >> we were i think pinching ourselves. listen, we've worked so hard on this and my father put so much passion into it and he became a politician 12 months ago and here we are last night throwing him over the top. we are such a close family and it was an amazing special moment. it was actually very emotional but amazing, very special moment for us. >> i remember when george and i talked to your brother in iowa. it seemed like two years ago, the beginning of the year? >> five years ago. >> that was where the process began. what has this journey been like and do you have any mixed feelings about what your family
will face going forward? >> it's been a wild journey. certainly a journey i never appreciated as kind of a traditional civilian being a politician. it's been wild. it's been fun. it's been energetic. i mean, we've literally seen every single corner of this country as we've gone through. and that's a beautiful process i mean, it teaches the candidate and teaches the family so much about the political process, so much about the problems that this nation actually faces, and it's actually a beautiful process. it's a lot more complicated than i ever thought it would be. i always thought -- i was the guy that said, listen, why don't they simplify this process. have people vote via e-mail but honestly it's such a beautiful thing to see every corner of this nation. >> you say you're not a politician. your brother sounded like one. >> he did a great job, honestly he did an amazing job and tiffany did an amazing job. i'm so proud of her. she's 22, she's never done this before and she came out and nailed it. >> bar is pretty high. >> the bar is high. the bar is high. >> sibling rivalry. >> we're a competitive family. we can take it. you know, we can take it. >> how will yours be different? >> you know, i really focused on the why because i think it's
such an important question. why is my father doing it? why does he care this much? why now? i really focus on the why and it's interesting, here's a guy who is kind of in the apex of his career, right, he does not need to be doing this. i hear from his friends all the time, you know, i would never do something like that. i mean the scrutiny, the this, the that, the time commitment, the stress, the aggravation. you know, why? for somebody who's become so successful, who could live a beautiful, cushy life at home, play golf all the time, run a nice business and sit back and my father cares deeply about this country. >> did any part of you -- did any part of you want to tell him don't do it? >> listen, i think he always knew that he was going to be right in the path of the fire and, you know, but my father has never run from it. i mean, he's always run toward the fire and away from -- versus away from the fire. i think that's what has made him successful his entire career. when he becomes passionate about something he sets his mind to it and he does it and you see that as you sit in this arena. i mean, this incredible arena with this incredible passion and i'm proud of him. i am just proud of the man. he's done such an unbelievable job. >> and what about yourself.
i mean, we were talking about your brother. it was very powerful, it was personal, political, very strong on policy. going forward, if your father should become president, you've been a close adviser to him. will you have some sort of role in a trump white house? >> probably not. i mean, first of all, if you ever made the call i'd be there in two seconds. the same goes for ivanka and the same thing goes for don and we are very close. i would never not go to one of his debates. i will always stand by his side. that's the kind of family we are. but, no, i'll probably very much be in new york running the hotels and golf courses and our other properties and, again, if he needed something i'd be there in three seconds flat. i think when he wins this i think he'll go down to washington and i think we'll be staying in new york continuing his legacy, but we'll always be there for him. >> ivanka jokingly said to lara that she was terrified about the speech she's going to give tomorrow night. what about you? >> certainly interesting. i mean, you see the size of this room.
you see how it's telecast to 28 million people or whatever the number is around the country. it's amazing, all eyes are on, but, you know, i also took immense pride and wrote every single word. >> no speechwriters helped you with that. >> zero. when you write from the heart and i'll certainly deliver it from the heart. the product will be what it'll be but certainly sincere and full of love and full of emotion and, you know, that's how it's supposed to be. >> you'll enjoy it. >> i'll enjoy it. trying to live this crazy wild moment. >> well, i know it's going to be -- we know it's going to be a long day for you. really appreciate you joining us live this morning. >> thank you. let's go back now to new york and michael is going to tell us what's on the big board, or as your father would say, huge board. >> huge board. all right, thank you, robin. coming up on our big board, aka huge board, "ghostbusters" star leslie jones takes a stand quitting twitter after vicious attacks. how the site is responding to that this morning. then trump versus the band queen. the battle brewing over their hit song "we are the champions." plus, we get an exclusive look behind the scenes of the
republican convention from t.j. holmes. he's going to take us all inside and behind the scenes. we'll see that live in just two minutes. we'll talk about that. here they are on the big board. look at them, they look pretty. you can go ahead and stick with that complicated credit card that limits where you earn bonus cash back. or... you can get the quicksilver card from capital one. quicksilver earns you unlimited 1.5% cash back on ev-e-ry purchase, ev-e-ry-where. i shouldn't have to ask. what's in your wallet? moms know their kids need love, encouragement and milk. with 8 grams of protein, and 8 other nutrients. 9 out of 10 u.s. olympians grew up drinking milk. moms know kids grow strong when they milk life.

we are back now with the big board. our team of insiders standing by with more on today's top stories and we'll get right to the first one, "ghostbusters" star leslie jones taking a stand after being attacked on twitter, a slew of online trolls tweeting the most horrific comments. jones responding saying she is leaving twitter with, quote, tears and a very sad heart as fans of the star and other celebrities are speaking out supporting her. becky worley our tech expert is here at the table with this story. becky, this is bullying in the first order. >> the worst of the internet, you guys. misogyny, racism, mean people. she's funny, she made a movie. what with the trolling. >> let's give people the back story here. she's tweeting, she's minding her own business using twitter
the way many of us do. what happened? >> this is somebody going after her in a racist and misogynistic way and twitter not able to handle those kind of abusive comments. you can report abuse on twitter but it can take months to resolve. in this specific case the person who was -- this very high-profile case, she reported it directly to jack dorsey who was the head of twitter. >> leslie did? >> yes, he reached out to her. the person -- the ringleader on this attack banned permanently, but twitter saying, people think that we don't do a good enough job on abuse and we agree, they say that they are working on their policies and they told us last night that they are really going to try to take the onus off the person being abused. >> because it's a mob mentality. one person starts and they get other people to join and that's what happened here. but are they developing any kind of technology to help? >> yeah, the good news here, michael, is that you can harness the mob for good. periscope, which is the video streaming service that's owned by twitter, they're experimenting with something where people who are watching
the stream, they see an abusive comment they can vote on whether they think it's abusive and if they do, that person's voted. we need more innovation here, you guys. >> i like it. >> yes, absolutely. >> i like it. bullying is not okay. >> it is not. >> thank you. >> thank you, becky. now the queen versus trump saga and not her majesty. >> no, we're talking the band. >> yeah, donald trump using the band's signature song "we are the champions" for his entrance at the republican convention and queen tweeting out, it was an unauthorized use, and now the rnc communications director sean spicer is firing back, he said that the song was, in fact, licensed and "rolling stone's" contributing editor joe levy joins us with more. >> how are you? >> great. >> it didn't stop here. they did stop there. sony music released a statement late yesterday saying queen doesn't want trump to use the song at all, and if he didn't have approval, they said he did, how did it happen? >> well, it happens all the time and it's happened for a long time.
when the rnc says he had approval what they mean there's approval in the arena through copyright law there is a blanket license that allows people to play those songs and the artists to be paid. so, when the cleveland cavaliers come out on the floor and they actually are the champions, they don't have to get queen's permission either, that license has been given to the arena already. >> feels like a loophole somehow to me, joe. do you think he'll use the same song again on thursday night for his big moment? >> well, i think knowing the trump campaign, that's a decision that will be made about 30 seconds before he walks on stage, maybe he'll be carrying an ipad and change his mind while he's walking on stage and we'll hear two songs, what we know queen's asked him not to. he believes he has the legal right and we know that when you say please, mr. trump, he doesn't always listen to please. >> all right. >> that's the truth. >> joe, we thank you so much. we move it on to topic number three. t.j. holmes, where are you, cleveland, of course, with just one day to go before donald trump gives his big speech as we
just talked about, and t.j. has an exclusive never before seen look behind the scenes. where are you right now, teej? >> hey, guys, i'm in the digital vault here backstage. and every single speaker ends up coming through here. i'll give you exclusive access backstage and show you what the speakers have to go through as i get ready to address the nation from the rnc here on "good morning america."

his first wife ivana trump and second wife, marla maples. >> are we getting married? >> and if so, when? >> who said we're not? >> reporter: the actress recently competed in season 22 of "dancing with the stars" where she opened up about her marriage to the now republican nominee. >> i met tiffany's dad when i was 20 years old. at that time he wasn't a world-known name. i met him through a friend and thought he was, wow, what an interesting person. >> reporter: but their six-year marriage wasn't without its share of drama. the two began dating while trump was still married to ivanka. -- ivana. the czech born socialite told barbara walters about meeting maples for the first time. >> she said i'm marla, and i love your husband, do you? >> yes. >> what did you say? >> get lost. i love my husband very much. >> reporter: ivana is the mother of trump's three oldest children, donald jr., ivanka and eric, all top executives at the trump organization and ivana did mend fences with her ex after her famous appearance in the movie "the first wives club."
>> don't get mad, get everything. >> in april ivana famously told "the new york post" donald is not anti-immigration saying, and i quote, as long as you come here legally, we need immigrants. who is going to vacuum our living rooms and clean up after us, end quote. robin and george. >> all right there, linsey. joining us now, abc's cokie roberts is here. now all is right in the world. always good to see you, cokie, especially in this environment and you spent a lot of time with the female delegates here. what are they telling you they need to hear from trump's family? >> well, they're thrilled his family is here and they really don't want to hear much from anybody else but they feel that his family might convince them, particularly the social conservatives, the people who are pro-life and anti-gay marriage that maybe that the family will convince them that he's not far out there somehow. that he really is a family man. but you know linsey talking
about the former wives, they could do him huge damage and the fact that they're not doing that is a big plus for him. >> is there any danger of overplaying the family card? >> sure, there is, because at some point isn't there anybody else? and how many things can you say about how great my dad is, which is why donald trump jr.'s speech last night was good because he didn't just do that. but, you know, you have to remember when ivana trump and donald trump got divorced, it was a huge thing, you know, everybody was taking sides about the prenup and the deal she got and all that, and she said that he wanted to run for president earlier and that the american women were siding with her against him, and that's why he didn't run then. but she's now come around and decided that she's not going to go after him anymore, and that is huge. >> that's a big deal. and ivanka, you know, his daughter, tomorrow night going to be introducing him. >> it's so interesting, isn't it?
i mean, his wife gave the keynote speech and now his daughter introducing him. it is a family affair here and ivanka, though, everyone has been very impressed by and, of course, the truth is they are his chief campaign advisers, that family is a close corporation, and they are really the people doing the deciding here, and so, therefore, the delegates on the floor want to know, you know, more about him. >> and they are. they're learning. >> they sure are. >> all right, cokie, always good to see you. all right, coming up, diet sabotage, don't you love the segue? almond milk. is it really as healthy as you think, cokie? is it? we're going to find out here. >> i never tasted it. >> on "good morning america." e going to find out here. >> i never tasted it. >> on "good morning america."

how do you feel about dodgeball? who loves it? yeah. who hates it? >> i was always on that afraid of dodgeball. >> no, come on. >> i know i ran into people for a living at some point but, yeah, i was going to hit somebody really hard or get really hard. >> right, right. >> it's upsetting so they are books sort of based on what i experienced as a kid growing up and it's nice for me now, it's nice to think about what is happening in kids' lives, what's important to them, you know, and this one is very much about going back to school, right. we have a while before we go back to school, right, guys, like a month or two. >> are you excited to go back to school? >> all: yeah. >> are voices louder on the playground or in class? >> all: playground. >> playground. yeah, yeah, so this book starts when they're all on the playground and everyone is sort of making a lot noise but then it sort of -- then they go to school, and they have different kinds of voices, right. >> i tell you what, they already obviously know this book. you've inspired a lot of well -- these are well-behaved kids, by the way. >> we have some great kids.

the great thing about reading, it leads you -- you find -- you always think as a kid when you read something, how do they know that about me? and that's where you learn about the universality of experience. so that's why i think books are important because it's a way for a kid to find themselves. >> i tell you right now, you're helping them with this, "freckleface strawberry and the really big voice." i'm glad you wrote it and kids love it. a great example for my kid, as well. so "freckleface strawberry and the really big voice" is available now. julianne moore, everybody, and thank you so much again. up next, it is workout wednesday. yeah, i'm taking these kids outside with julianne and we're going to work out with tracy anderson and all that is live right there in times square. >> that would be funny, right?
