7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking news as we come on the air. crash landing. a huge explosion and smoke engulfing this boeing 777 at one of the world's busiest airports. passengers rushing down emergency chutes. the latest on these terrifying moments on the tarmac. 24 hours of trouble. donald trump starts a new war with his own party refusing to endorse paul ryan and john mccain as he faces backlash over a purple heart, his comments on sexual harassment and what he said about a baby. >> i think she really believed me that i love having a baby crying while i'm speaking. >> the president calls trump unfit for office and challenges republicans to walk away from their candidate. teen murder mystery. two beloved high school students found shot to death murdered behind a grocery store in the suburbs. investigators poring over surveillance video trying to
7:01 am
find the killer on the loose. new concerns about what's being called unlivable and unsanitary conditions at the olympic village in rio where the world's greatest athletes will be staying. the conditions are forcing some on team usa to jump ship. we do say good morning, america. are you ready to go to rio? >> i'll be on a plane to rio this time tomorrow. >> bring some water. >> all eyes are on the olympics opening up in a couple of days and the opening ceremony, well, there is a lot of concern about how the conditions are shaping up there. we'll have -- >> except yours. >> you know what, i survived sochi. i can survive rio. we'll figure it out. >> another word for you -- airbnb. >> that is coming up. but first breaking news. crash landing at one of the world's busiest airports in dubai. you can see the jetliner
7:02 am
there engulfed in smoke. 300 people evacuated. and our aviation correspondent david kerley is tracking all the latest. good morning, david. >> good morning, george. this was a troubled landing. something went terribly gone. part of the plane explodes. caught in dramatic moments. just after it crash landed on a runway at dubai international airport. whatten explosion. this is a dubai international airport. the fire, smoke and explosion leading to emergency chutes being deployed. the explosion coming right after the jet came to rest on the runway. it appears to be sitting on its belly. the airplane has not said if there was an issue with its landing gear. everything sounded normal. >> hello, emirates 521.
7:03 am
>> 521, good afternoon. >> reporter: the largest carrier in the middle east was flying from india to dubai and the flight path appears completely normal. so the question this morning -- what happened in those final seconds and on the runway that led to this horrifying explosion. remarkably emirates is saying this morning, no one was hurt. it's remarkable after that explosion. crews are trained to evacuate aircraft as quickly as possible to get away from the remaining fuel on board. now to the race for the white house. and that new trouble for donald trump. the republican nominee going head-to-head with top members of his own party as president obama calls him, quote, unfit for the presidency.
7:04 am
abc's cecilia vega has the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. what happened in the last 24 hours for donald trump reads like a checklist of political don'ts. he's managed to anger party leaders, anger vets, even moms with babies, yes, babies. donald trump may be the republican nominee but this morning he is at war with his own party, not just refusing to endorse two of the gop's highest ranking members in their state primaries, house speaker paul ryan and senator john mccain. >> you know, never been a big fan of john mccain and i just hate the way our veterans have been treated by john and other people. >> reporter: trump also coming under fire for this move at a virginia rally. >> a man came up to me and he handed me his purple heart. >> reporter: trump who never served in the military then said -- >> i always wanted to get the purple heart. this was much easier. >> reporter: he even raised eyebrows for booting out a crying baby. at first saying --
7:05 am
>> don't worry about that baby. i love babies. i love babies. i hear that baby crying, i like it. >> reporter: but then -- >> actually i was only kidding. you can get the baby out of here. that's all right. don't worry. i think she really believed me that i love having a baby crying while i'm speaking. that's okay. >> reporter: this morning, two high-profile republican supporters announcing they will not vote for trump. hewlett-packard ceo meg whitman and new york congressman richard hanna both saying they will break ranks and support hillary clinton. overnight, ivanka trump forced to defend her father's comments on sexual harassment after he said if his own daughter faced harassment she would find another job. >> i think sexual harassment is inexcusable in any setting. >> reporter: president obama also piling on with his strongest attack yet. >> he's woefully unprepared to do this job.
7:06 am
>> reporter: suggesting gop leaders should withdraw their endorsement of trump. >> there has to be a point at which you say, this is not somebody i can support for president of the united states. there has to come a point at which you say enough. >> reporter: well, so far none of the gop leadership is defecting as a result of that call from president obama, but we do now know that overnight rnc chairman reince priebus called donald trump to express frustration with how his campaign is handling its messaging and now the clinton campaign is pouncing making a concentrated effort to target republicans and pick up some of these votes, george. >> so much going on there, cecilia. let's talk about it now with our political analysts jon karl and matthew dowd and let me begin with you. we say this a lot. we've never seen anything like this. but you have panic at the top ranks of the republican party. trump seems to be at war with the entire party establishment. right now, and you're reporting something startling. senior officials inside the republican party actually exploring what to do if trump drops out. >> this is absolutely
7:07 am
unprecedented. first of all, i am told that rnc chairman reince priebus is furious, that he has had multiple discussions with trump telling him he needs to drastically change course. but here's the news, i am told that senior officials at the party are actively exploring what would happen if trump dropped out. how to replace him on the ballot. the answer, george, is they can't force him out. he would have to go out voluntarily, and then it would be the 168 members of the rnc through a complicated process that would pick a new candidate. it would have to happen by early september. >> but they think that's a real possibility? >> he is so unpredictable right now. he is so -- they are so unable to control his message that they just don't know and they clearly think it is a possibility which is why they're looking at these rules. >> so, matthew dowd, let's look at the calculation for these other republican leaders. so far paul ryan, even though he's not endorsed by donald trump, john mccain meeting with mike pence overnight, the vice presidential candidate, but not rescinding his endorsement either. at what point do the
7:08 am
calculations change? >> well, i think that's a really good question, george. i think first of all there is a question of principle. is this the candidate they want to stand by in the course of this as a principled stand and they seem to have answered that already, which is yes. i think, at some point if he deteriorates, let's keep in mind he's still within shouting distance of hillary clinton after all of this. we haven't seen the results of the last 24 hours, but, george, donald trump reminds me of the movie "tin cup" where the kevin costner character keeps dropping the ball and hitting it in the lake and he ends up with a 13 on the hole where the crowd is watching. we are watching this unfold in a way we've never seen before. >> one of the reasons, jon karl, some of the republicans still standing by trump, it appears that he still has some ability to raise some money for them. >> he does and, george, i have to say the frustration is especially deep because they believe that hillary clinton looks vulnerable, exactly as matthew said, she's actually had a bad few days, the dnc has gone through a whole shake-up.
7:09 am
she misstated what the fbi director said about her e-mails. one top official told me if trump had gone on vacation for the past two weeks, he would be in the lead. but, yes, he can still raise money and he still has support among the republican rank and file. >> this does appear to be masking hillary clinton's weaknesses, matt. >> it does. you have two flawed characters, two candidates in the course of this with the highest unfavorability rating we've seen in a presidential contest and an environment that actually helps donald trump. i think that's what most frustrates republicans in this. they think this is the perfect time to capture the white house and they have somebody that keeps committing pilot error in the course of this day in and day out. >> okay, matthew dowd, jon karl, thanks very much. let's go to robin. >> all right, george, now to the monsoon in the southwest. flash floods sparking hundreds of evacuations and water rescues. ginger, of course, is here with all the latest on that. >> hey, good morning, robin. phoenix, arizona, averages about an inch of rain in the entire month of august. yesterday, spots around phoenix did that in two hours and
7:10 am
doubled it so, that's why you have pictures just like that. the tropical moisture fueling that monsoon and the threat still there today. flash floods shutting down i-17 in phoenix, arizona. up to 2 inches of rain in an hour stranding cars. water rescues and muddy mayhem as people try to drive through. >> it happened so fast. you really don't have time to make a lot of decisions. >> reporter: more than 200 students evacuating this school, water filling the hallways. so we are on flash flood watch from las vegas to albuquerque today. parts of southwestern colorado as that moisture pulls up you could see another 2 to 3 inches fall very quickly in isolated spots. >> ginger, thanks. we're going to get the latest now on the battle against zika. another locally transmitted case has been discovered in florida. this time outside the containment zone and authorities are now using planes to battle the mosquitoes. abc's eva pilgrim is on the scene in miami. good morning, eva.
7:11 am
>> reporter: george, this is the front line in the fight against zika. now, even though the county is spraying, people are hiring private contractors like mosquito joe that you see behind me to get these mosquitoes before they bite. this morning, the fight against zika in south florida also a battle with mother nature. high winds and heavy rains grounding the planned aerial assault that was supposed to start this morning. the county needing optimal conditions to drop pesticides from the sky over a ten-square-mile zone north of downtown miami. >> mosquitoes are just tough. >> mosquitoes are tough. man has been battling mosquitoes for over 100,000 years. >> reporter: mosquito control also beefing up their ground effort, tripling the number of inspectors going door to door, so far, 15 people contracting zika from infected mosquitoes in south florida. this clinic in the hot zone now expanding who they are testing for the virus. >> we're testing every pregnant woman that comes through my desk.
7:12 am
>> they're all getting the blood test. >> whether they have symptoms or no symptoms at all. >> reporter: melissa welcher is due to give birth later this month and she's taking every precaution wearing long sleeves and pants. >> i just had an ultrasound that was definitely a big relief knowing that the baby is okay. >> reporter: this morning, concerns zika could rattle the sunshine state's tourism industry, a major fuel to its economy. some airlines, jetblue, delta and southwest, aren't charging fees for customers changing their plans. for those making the flight, they're taking every precaution. >> i was kind of scared to come here. i was trying to switch my flight >> we'll be using a lot of bug repellent and that's the best we can do right now. >> reporter: the normal daily downpours are causing these puddles you see here. this is prime mosquito breeding ground and that's also making the fight against these mosquitoes harder and having to be constant, robin. >> yeah, all that standing water.
7:13 am
eva, thank you. now to a troubling development out of north korea. seoul and tokyo officials say the north fired a ballistic missile into the sea that landed near japan's territorial waters making it one of the longest launches for the north korean test. abc's bob woodruff is there in north korea with the latest. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, robin. yes, u.s. strategic command says that, in fact, two missiles were launched southwest of here, one of them exploding just after launch. the other flying about 600 miles into the sea off of japan. today, one of north korea's top officials gave us their first, their very first u.s. tv interview in more than a decade claiming that these rocket launches were self-defense against the nuclear threat, accusing the united states of what he called nuclear blackmail. we traveled down to the border with south korea home to 28,000 american troops, north korea says it now considers itself at war with the united states after washington imposed sanctions on
7:14 am
its leadership including kim jong-un for civil rights abuses. robin. >> i know you'll stay on top of this. amy has the other top stories, starting with a big cash payout to iran. yeah, this is a bombshell report this morning that claims the obama administration secretly sent $400 million in cash to iran just as the iranians freed four american prisoners back in january. the state department denies it was ransom and says that cash was all part of a settlement stemming from a failed arms deal from 1979. officials tell "the wall street journal" iranian negotiators wanted the cash as a sign of good faith. well, yet another dangerous wildfire has erupted in california. this time near wine country. the fire exploding to nearly 2,000 acres overnight prompting evacuations near the city of winters. meanwhile, an illegal campfire is now blamed for sparking that deadly fire near big sur which has destroyed 57 homes.
7:15 am
well, new details about this charter bus crash near fresno, tuesday. five people were killed. dozens injured when a bus hit a sign pole which sliced through the cabin. a passenger claims just before the crash another driver refused to let the bus merge into the passing lane essentially running it off the road. well, a rare moment in the major leagues last night in philadelphia. the umpire angry over a heckler in the stands took the unusual step of ejecting that fan from the game. he had been apparently yelling sexual references so you know what, the crowd cheered that decision and the ump said something quite funny. it's not every day that the home crowd applauds his decisions. and finally, an olympic gymnast is flipping out over his phone bill all because of pokemon go. kohei uchimura of japan has been playing pokemon since arriving in rio but, see, he didn't realize he was racking up huge roaming charges to the tune of $4,954. teammates say he looked like he
7:16 am
was dead when he got the bill at dinner. well, you know what, there is a happy ending, though. somehow he convinced the phone company to cut the bill to $30 a day. it might have helped that he is the reigning gold medalist in the men's all-around competition. a local newspaper saying, uchimura will not get any pokemon but he certainly will get gold. >> he won't have any. >> and speaking of the olympics -- speaking of the olympics, all eyes are on rio. the opening ceremony kicking off in just two days and athletes say accommodations less than ideal. now some competitors are even forgoing olympic village altogether. abc's t.j. holmes is here with the latest. good morning, teej. >> hey, good morning there, lara. these athletes for months have been warned about zika. they've been warned about security in rio and they've been warned about filthy water and now, oh, by the way, your toilets are clogged. this is an embarrassment for rio right now. athletes are showing up expecting the competition to be brutal, not the living quarters. olympic athletes headed to rio
7:17 am
bring your "a" game and possibly your own shower curtain. as athletes and journalists start to move in, stories and pictures are coming out about what some describe as unsanitary, unlivable and incomplete accommodations at the olympic village. >> it really looks like construction site where things are almost done but not quite. the u.s. olympic committee did quietly bring in a cleanup crew, a fix-it crew to deal with some of the issues. we've heard about with other nations. >> reporter: nba star andrew bogut playing for his native australia in rio tweeted this photo of him in his room putting together a shower curtain so we can shower and not flood the place. one journalist gave a tour of his room highlighting the shower describing it as a hole in the wall where water comes out. >> you can still have a shower but it's far from ideal. >> reporter: while others have highlighted exposed wiring, leaky pipes and clogged toilets. to make matters worse, security is also a concern after the australian team was robbed during a fire. >> the games are an extraordinary undertaking and
7:18 am
there are still questions about if rio is up to the task. >> reporter: but the usa men's basketball team made up of millionaire superstars like kevin durant and carmelo anthony, well, this is where they'll be, a charting a luxury cruise ship complete with a wraparound deck, a pool and even a cigar lounge. now, to be fair it's only one cigar lounge. i mean, three weeks, one cigar lounge. >> t.j., do you have any connections? >> actually, i'm going to be putting in some calls, but to be fair the women's basketball team is staying there, as well. don't put it just on the men for taking this spot. >> no one is giving them a problem. it's a great idea. you're heading -- >> yes, i'm heading there and actually i'm going to be handing my hotel room off to t.j., i think, we'll tag team. >> at the airport we'll high-five it. please tell me you got a good hotel. >> our "a" team is there. all right. >> thank you, guys. let's go back to ginger. >> at least when you get there the weather will be okay. won't be any worse than this. montego bay, jamaica.

we welcome you back to "gma" and you're looking at a scary moment on one of the busiest runways in the world. the flight was approximately 300 on board crash landing in dubai this morning. smoke enveloping the plane. thankfully everyone on board was safely evacuated. >> and a real mystery over what went wrong. also right now, war erupting in the republican party. donald trump is refusing to endorse leaders paul ryan and john mccain as president obama says trump is unfit for office. also right now, the southwest facing that monsoon and flash flooding, prompting evacuations and water rescues as tropical storm earl strengthens, on the verge of becoming a hurricane in the caribbean. and we have a parenting alert. we know how much our kids love bounce houses. but could they pose a huge danger?
7:31 am
especially in the summer, a major new headline coming up in our big board. >> that is just ahead. but we begin with that murder mystery in georgia. communities are in shock and mourning holding a candlelight vigil after two teenagers were found dead behind a suburban grocery store. abc's steve osunsami is in roswell, georgia, with the latest. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. we're at the high school of one of the murdered teens and as students here return to classes here, investigators struggle with what to tell them. this morning, families in suburban atlanta are worried for their children with police now saying that the two 17-year-olds found dead behind a grocery store were murdered. >> well, it's very scary. you want to think that your kids are safe at all times, but you just don't ever know. >> reporter: police say a delivery driver found the bodies of natalie henderson and carter davis near two vehicles early monday morning. investigators are now looking at video from surveillance cameras aimed at the parking lot where they were found hoping for clues. >> it is obvious that both
7:32 am
suffered head trauma. >> reporter: the medical examiner says each of them died from a single gunshot wound to the head. for now police say it wasn't drugs or suicide but calling it a relationship-based killing. natalie henderson was about to start her senior year at roswell high where she's here on the field performing with the color guard. ♪ her mother gave us these senior class photos that she sat for just last week and says her daughter was our beautiful shining girl, a free spirit with a gorgeous smile that could make your day or your week. davis was also starting his senior year at river ridge high school in a neighboring county where he played lacrosse. classes began on monday. >> it's devastating when you're so excited about all of your kids coming back to school and then you find out on the first day that something like this happens. don't quite understand it because he was a great kid. >> he always funny, always smiling. >> reporter: friends of the two students held a vigil tuesday night. >> he was such a kid that was full of life, there was no
7:33 am
reason for him to be gone. >> reporter: this should be an exciting time for students at the beginning of the school year but instead we're told there will be grief counselors available at both high schools this morning. robin. >> incredibly tragic, steve, thank you. joining us now, former fbi special agent and abc news consultant brad garrett. brad, why would the police assume, suspect that this is relationship-based crime? >> think about location and that they had to be drawn to that particular place behind the grocery store, robin. so it appears to me this is a setup to bring them there and that they know the person or persons in some form or fashion. >> and we heard in steve's report that both of the teens were shot once in the head killing them. what does that tell you about this crime? >> that the killer wanted them dead, probably knows them or has some relationship with them, so i think that's clearly the purpose of this and perhaps there's a revenge and/or send a message factor to this. >> and the surveillance video
7:34 am
that they're poring over, hopefully that will give them some sort of idea of who did this. >> robin, it should give them actually the moving parts. when the vehicles showed up how the shooter approached them, or shooters, and give them maybe a little bit more of a ticktock as to what went down behind this grocery store. >> hopefully they'll get some answers very soon. this is just incredibly tragic. all right, brad, thanks so much. >> shocking. >> it is. moving on now to a new development after the death of "star trek" actor anton yelchin. his parents filing a wrongful death lawsuit against fiat chrysler, claiming a flaw in their jeep cherokee caused it to roll backwards and kill their son. abc's linsey davis has more on the story. >> reporter: drivers have complained they had trouble telling if the car was in park. many reported the vehicles rolled off after the driver exited. yelchin first received a safety recall notice in may and then
7:35 am
another one that the company had a fix just days after his death in june. >> may i have your attention, please. >> reporter: grieving parents of 27-year-old "star trek" actor anton yelchin are taking action filing a wrongful death lawsuit against fiat chrysler, the maker of the 2015 jeep grand cherokee that killed the young actor. >> we decided to come here to prevent other family for the same tragedy. >> reporter: just six weeks ago yelchin was crushed against a gate in his own driveway when his jeep rolled backwards trapping him. on tuesday, his distraught mother fought back tears as she remembered her only son. >> always proud of him being greatest human being. not being a star. >> reporter: in may fiat chrysler sent out this letter to jeep owners warning your vehicle may roll away striking and injuring you. if the vehicle's engine is left running the parking brake is not engaged and the vehicle is not in the park position before exiting the vehicle. you can see here how the lever can cause confusion.
7:36 am
no matter what gear you're in, it springs back to the center. one week after the "star trek beyond" actor was killed, fiat chrysler sent out a letter announcing a fix for the defect recalling 1.1 million vehicles. >> the safety recall was way too little and way too late. we hope this lawsuit will teach them a lesson. >> reporter: fiat chrysler also released a statement tuesday night extending its sympathies to the yelchin family for their tragic loss. the company has not been served with a lawsuit and cannot comment further at this time. it's not clear just how much yelchin's parents are seeking in damages. a government investigation into the gearshifters found 68 people were injured in 266 crashes as of june. you can see that it is really confusing potentially with that gearshift and your heart just breaks when you hear the mother talking about her only son. >> okay, linsey, thanks very much. let's over to lara.
7:37 am
>> thanks so much, george. coming up on our big board the backlash over donald trump's comments about sexual harassment. and then a parenting alert about bounce houses. could they be a health hazard for your kids? and then why dentists are saying, not so fast about that new report about flossing, that it doesn't matter. our insider is joining us live in just two minutes. time now for our big board.

7:39 am
time now for our time now for our big board. team of insiders standing by with more of today's top stories. nick watt here at our table. we'll get to your story in just a little bit. but let's start out with that headline from the trump family. talked about it the first half hour, sexual harassment, and our workplace expert tory johnson is here to talk about it and, tory, we showed ivanka trump there at the beginning of the broadcast saying any sexual harassment is inexcusable. what's causing the controversy here is what her father said and what her brother said. her father first telling "usa today" that he would hope ivanka would find a new career or company if she were sexually harassed and eric followed up
7:40 am
on cbs, saying ivanka is strong and wouldn't allow herself to be subjected to it. some would say that this puts the focus in the wrong place, on the victim, not the harasser. >> absolutely right, and there was a firestorm of outrage we heard pretty immediately from the women on fox news. gretchen carlson who filed that sexual harassment lawsuit against former fox news chairman roger ailes said, sad in 2016 we're still victim blaming women. trust me, i'm strong. and we also heard from fox news anchor megyn kelly, who responded with a one-word tweet, sigh. and that anger was definitely widespread when donald trump says a woman could find another career, a woman who is a victim of sexual harassment, that is definitely not the voice of a champion of working women and people took note. >> yeah, absolutely. hey, tory, a lot of us have been given the advice, go to hr if there's a problem but you say that doesn't always work. why? >> it doesn't always work so hr doesn't work for you. hr is there for the protection of the company and you have to remember that. and so, while hr is -- should be charged and often is charged with enforcing zero tolerance
7:41 am
policies around sexual harassment many times a woman who complains is suddenly pegged a problem and she faces consequences for that, so just keep that in mind. i think some of the immediate things that you can do first and foremost call it out immediately, many times people sort of think these days that they can say and do anything they please. they don't even realize what they're doing is wrong so, if you are subjected to that, call it out as strongly as you feel comfortable doing. document the specifics. if you're going to file a claim ultimately of harassment your credibility will come into question and so you want to make sure that you've got all your facts in writing lined up and, of course, you can and should report it and that could mean going to a trusted colleague for help. it could mean your supervisor or potentially hr if you don't get the help you need internally, you can file a complaint with the eeoc. you don't even need a lawyer to do that. you can do it yourself. and, of course, if you have the resources, consult an attorney about your rights and your recourse. >> wow, lots of great

information. tory, thank you so very much. want to move on now to a parenting alert about bounce houses. these are a birthday party staple but new research reveals the large and inflatable castles and other shapes may pose major dangers for children, especially in the hot sun. dr. jen ashton is joining us live. what does this study say about heat-related problems with these? >> so, this is basically looking at the microclimate. think of a parked car in the summertime and found that the temperature difference inside these bouncy houses can be 4 degrees to 7 degrees higher than ambient or temperature outside and the heat index in this study went as high as 117 degrees so, when you think about the fact that kids can spend a decent amount of time in these, they really do open themselves up for the potential heat-related illness like heatstroke so it's something to be aware of. >> what should parents do about it? >> the awareness is key, number one. we've heard a lot about safety of these bounce houses recently. you want to make sure they're tethered so they don't fly away.
7:43 am
we've seen horrible stories of that and you want to make sure that the kids inside are roughly the same size and age as your child. you want to make sure it's clean and, again, if it's too hot for you to touch, it's too hot for the kids. that was an official statement from the consumer product safety commission so commonsense stuff. >> okay, jen, stick around for our next story. this is one we first brought yesterday, flossing. and the question is what is the deal with it? now, the federal government is questioning the benefits of flossing and the american dental association is weighing in with a little response, i guess, dentists want to stick by their advice. >> well, listen, george, the ada has been advocating flossing since 1908 and they are sticking to their guns. they tweeted, which i think we have this tweet, they say, cleaning between your teeth is an essential part of taking care of your teeth and gums, exclamation point. they mean business and they have a link also to a video instructing you how to do it.
7:44 am
listen, no one is saying that flossing is bad for you. they're just saying there is no evidence to say -- >> that's true, right? no real research. >> there's no research. my own research before i moved to this country i never flossed my teeth once. dental hygiene where i'm from is not a big deal. i might have crooked teeth but i have no cavities. for whatever that's worth. >> so that's your own personal research. >> yeah. >> but in terms of hygiene how are we going to get these people back? twitter went nuts and one viewer writes, "i finally have been vindicated. ha." another one says, "nine out of ten dentists are bald-faced liars." how will we get them back? >> i think people will get back once the joke is over. people are talking about floss like big oil, big tobacco, it's a bit of a joke and flossing is one of those fundamentals of american life like eat your vegetables. don't wear white shoes after labor day. if that's not true, what else is not true? people are freaking out. also, if you followed the rules in your 30s you've spent 15 days of your life flossing your teeth
7:45 am
and people are saying, hang on a second. you've stolen my time with duff information. i want my time back. >> jen, you have a big smile on your face. >> yeah, because, george, lara, listen, i don't think we need a federal government study to tell us that if you have a big chunk of food in your gum, it's probably not good for your oral health. now, i'm a very type a person but i've gotten an "f" in flossing and i'm still going to work on it. i say keep it. >> i like the way it feels too. >> i hate the way it feels. awful. i did it once, not for me, but in general it's a good thing. >> there is a lot of sharing. >> sharing is caring. george. thank you to tory and dr. jen for that visual. thank you to nick for sharing so much. coming up in our hot shot fan interference, a cincinnati reds star going for a foul ball when his own fan tries to grab it. the tense confrontation, how they made up. we'll have the story for you in two minutes. >> this guy is not even realizing it now. this guy is not even realizing it now.

8:22 am
has certainly raised. >> you're sweating over here. >> it's about core but, again, it's about getting your body limber and ready to work out. need that modification you can't jump -- >> a lot of our viewers are asking about a lesser version without jumping. >> just get the knee as high as you can and touch under. >> what makes your workout different? >> it's not about -- it's not about being different. it's about -- i like to go back to the basics. i think that we get so caught up in the hype nowadays of finding this new workout method that will get us fit quick. it's about being really good at the basics and being a master of those basic movements and i know you're going to get stronger from that. so it's almost like a paleo workout. talk about paleo. this is a regression. this is, all right, let's get really good at moving our body again and i know we'll get stronger without the hype. >> what is ginger now doing? >> the squat -- we're doing the combat squat. >> i can't do this. i have a bum hip. >> this is the full version. you squat -- if you don't squat and have a bad lower back, don't take it as low. you can hit the four punches and bring it up as high as you can. work within your range of
8:23 am
motion. work within your body's limitation. >> are we squeezing the core at all times? all times. ginger, you look like you're working your core. >> the most important thing about any movement is keeping your back protected. keeping what's called your spinal integrity in check so we want to keep our core engaged and don't want to get lax and keep a lot of tension in our body when we work out when we lift weights or do calisthenics. >> give us those three moves that you say can really make a difference, even if you do it one day a week. >> we did the squat jacks, you can do those for 30-second sets. 30-second sets. >> how many sets? >> we'll do this whole thing about three to four sets. so just again for beginners, as you start to progress you do more. 30 seconds of those jacks then 30 seconds of those squats with the rotation. we're going 30 seconds right here, those combat squats. then the last move, this is a boot camp classic, it's how we do burpees in here. we're going to show them the combat burpees. >> you seem way too happy. >> i love a good burpee.
8:24 am
>> the burpees are a great way to hit our body from head to toe. efficiency but practical. i'll show you the regression. don't get caught up in the hype. throw four punches and hit one push-up and we're going to jump up. so i'll do it full time then i'll slow it down for you that might need modification. one, two, three, four, hit the push-up then jump up. i'm flinging sweat all over. if you need that modification again, take it a little bit slower, get that punch form, take it low, step your feet back. >> then take a nap. >> step your feet back into the plank position and either go down to your knees for the pushup or forego the pushup if your upper body isn't there and step it forward making sure you're standing up with your legs, not your lower back and reach up. >> that's great. >> two different layers for two different styles. no reason we can't all get moving. >> ginger zee. >> yes. >> great workout.
8:25 am
>> any time you do a burpee, you'll sweat immediately. >> do you feel like doing the weather. >> of course. weather and sweating. my thing. macy. thank you so much. ainsley has the mike. the kids are in -- where are you from? >> virginia. >> from virginia. visiting. summer is not almost over. let's enjoy it but not so much the heat has caused more in the way of fire. napa valley, exploding overnight and red flag warnings in place, parts of wyoming, montana and right there into the western dakotas. i'll leave with you a look. not bad, right, lara? >> good morning, i am meteorologist mike nicco, we will check out our highlights. today, afternoon sunshine, and seasonal temperatures. drizzle more likely as the extended cooling trend begins tomorrow and lasts through the weekend. 60s language coast and the bay, and 70s and 80s for the bay to our north and south bay neighborhoods. stems in the 50s and tomorrow afternoon, 6-12 degrees cooler.
