good morning, america. dead heat. donald trump takes a lead in a new poll this morning as he battles clinton in a fight for ohio. both candidates in cleveland, ramping up their campaigns in the swing state. clinton suffering a coughing fit on the stump. but still taking a swing at trump. >> every time i think about trump i get allergic. >> his campaign immediately hitting back. >> i don't joke. she jokes. look at the deal she's made. >> david muir sits down with both candidates and their running mates right here this morning. >> good morning, america. back to school health alert. the cdc and pediatricians out with a major headline about flu vaccines and nasal sprays. dr. ashton joins us live. an abc news exclusive. chris brown speaks out this
morning about his arrest. >> i cannot wait till the truth comes to light about this. >> accused of threatening a former beauty queen with a gun. what really happened behind the scenes of that hours-long police standoff at his home. new details only on "gma." serena "the superstar" williams does it again. >> game. >> what a serving display. >> making history at the u.s. open, winning more grand slam matches than any player, man or woman ever. now the greatest of all time has a new record in sight. and good morning, america. how about that, serena williams and how about that voice we just heard. welcome back, michael. >> thank you, george. thank you. >> come on now. hey, hey. >> no, be quiet. no, no, no, no. >> it is great to have you full time with us. it does feel like the first day
of school around here, doesn't it? >> only thing i'm missing is my spider-man lunch box. it does feel like that though. >> you did have that, didn't you? >> i did and the kiss one too. >> we'll meet your mini michael coming up. we're going to start out with politics. the labor day has passed and the presidential race, 63 days before the final vote and both bearing down on the big battleground states. you see their planes sharing a tarmac in cleveland yesterday. we'll have those exclusively interviews with david muir in just a moment. let's start with cecilia vega who has all the latest from a busy labor day. >> george, busy is right. good morning to you. no holiday for these candidates. traditionally the campaigns kick into high gear until after labor day but nothing about this is traditional. this is the final sprint. >> reporter: a political traffic jam hitting this ohio tarmac. hillary clinton and donald trump landing just steps from one another before hitting the
trail. >> welcome to our big plane. it's so exciting. >> reporter: 275 days without a press conference and clinton broke in her new plane by answering reporters' questions and going after donald trump. >> he's temperamentally unfit to be president and commander in chief. but if you look at his behavior toward putin and russia, that is a serious indication of how unfit he is. >> reporter: but her inaugural ride on hill force one interrupted by a coughing fit. >> can i get some water? >> reporter: this after a two-minute coughing fit earlier on the campaign trail. >> every time i think about trump, i get allergic. boy, we have 363 days to go. >> reporter: trump's campaign manager responding immediately
tweeting, must be allergic to media. finally spent a minute with them. trump also racing to the finish line in ohio. the republican nominee now saying he will do all three debates. the only reason he wouldn't? >> hurricanes, natural disaster. no, i expect to do all three. >> reporter: you heard it. he says he'll do all three. hillary clinton brought out her allies. they were out in force spanning the map. even bernie sanders hit the trail for the very first time on his own. we now know next week first lady michelle obama will campaign for hillary clinton for the first time in this race. clinton, robin, is taking no chances right now. >> both were in ohio and both sat down with one person, "world news tonight" anchor david muir. hillary clinton and tim kaine you have taking aim, fighting back about questions about her
stamina. >> michael, great to see you. 63 days but we're here longer than that. all four saying yes sitting down with us. we first met up with hillary clinton and tim kaine moments after touching down on clinton's new plane dubbed hill force one. they have a new book but they also have that brand new poll this morning. this race is tightening dramatically and here's your first look. labor day is here. >> labor day is here. >> i hear you just landed in ohio and i understand you flew hill force one. >> we did. >> did you notice out the window the trump/pence plane, too? >> we did. >> is that a sign it's game on? >> i think it might be. >> 63 days to go until election day and you mentioned donald trump in this country, secretary clinton. and people know he wants to build a wall. tough on immigration. i'm curious, when a voter is asked what hillary clinton stands for with 63 days to go, what do you hope they'll say? >> i hope they'll say i stand for the kind of future that will help them and their families. we want to get the economy to work for everyone, not just those at the top.
the best i can tell is donald trump is for building a big wall which we now know after his unfortunate trip to mexico, the mexicans have said they're not paying for it. >> you talk about the trip to mexico. donald trump said they did not discuss who would pay for that wall. the mexican president afterwards said they did discuss it and that mexico would not pay for it. your campaign said, quote, it turns out trump didn't just choke, he got beat in the room and lied about it. is that what you believe? >> that's what it sounded like because what happened is what we call a diplomatic incident, because he came out saying one thing and the mexican president contradicted him almost immediately. so, it is clear that he went down with a mission, it's been the mission of his whole campaign from the very first day to demonize immigrants, to call mexicans rapists and criminals, to do everything he could to
stir up all kinds of bad feelings about hard working people. he didn't raise it so he did choke. >> on those trips, those recent trips donald trump tweeted hillary clinton didn't go to louisiana, she didn't go to mexico, she doesn't have the drive or stamina to make america great again. he goes on to say does she look presidential, fellas? give me a break. >> can i just -- does she look presidential, fellas? that's an idiotic comment. from donald trump. i got added to this ticket about 11, 12 weeks, 100 days from the election. this great public servant has been on the field for 17 or 18 months, it's hard to keep up with her. the day he tweeted out hillary didn't come to mexico, does she have the energy, she was here in ohio talking to the american legion. >> we do press hillary clinton on the fbi revealing their investigation into her e-mails. what she said she didn't recall and an aide breaking her blackberries with a hammer, we learned about that in the investigation and we'll get into that. >> how does she explain the
polls are tightening? >> she said she fully expected these polls to tighten but a lot people have looked at these weeks and said donald trump is out there a lot more than she was and spent more time with donors. i asked has she been outcampaigned by him and she said no. we'll get into that. >> we're looking forward to the debates. what does she expect from trump? >> she said trump said after every one of those republican debates i won. she said that is not lost on her. she takes that into this preparation and takes it seriously. you can tell she is already prepping. >> you had a busy day. you raced across the state and spoke with both of them. >> we didn't get a speeding ticket but it was close. we headed to the county fair where donald trump was, a huge crowd gathered outside for donald trump and his running mate. he pointed to those crowds but he also pointed to the polls, saying he is on the rise. what does he mean when he talks about hillary clinton's stamina, we asked and about what she said, did he choke? isn't it divide and conquer? 63 days to go. >> it is.
very rarely will we be together like maybe once every two weeks. we like it because we like each other but the fact is it's better when mike goes someplace and i go someplace. >> you often talked about hillary clinton's stamina and said she didn't look presidential. >> i really do believe that if what do you mean by that? >> i don't think she has a presidential look and you need a presidential look. you have to get the job done. i think if she went to mexico she would have had a total failure. we had a big success. >> when you talk about her not looking presidential, are you talking about aesthetics here? >> i'm talking about general -- by the way, she says things about me that are horrible. the single greatest asset i have according to those who know me, is my temperament, but she came up with this madison avenue line let's talk about his temperament. it's the single greatest asset i have is my temperament. >> reporter: trump knows his
opponent is here too. hillary clinton who is also here in ohio as you know told us a short time ago you choked, that the idea of mexico paying for this wall has been central to your campaign. did you choke? >> so, let me just tell you about joking. i don't joke. she jokes. look at the deals she's made. she's responsible for so many bad things that happened to our country including the signing by her husband of nafta which has drained our country of its jobs. i've been given a plus including by you people but i've been a pluses for the job i did in mexico and the fact that mexico will pay for the wall. it was discussed that it wouldn't be discussed but they know my stance and i know their stance. >> did the mexican president break his word in talking about it? >> we had ground rules and that's okay. see who winds in the end. we'll win 100% they'll pay for the wall. >> governor pence, you're making news in revealing you'll release your tax returns. >> sure. pretty quick read. >> pretty quick read. >> i'm curious. do you think the american voter has the right to see the tax returns of donald trump before they vote on election day? >> you know, i'm very pleased to provide our tax returns.
you're going to find out my family is a middle class family and there will be pretty clear evidence we haven't profited from our 16 years in and around public life. >> but, governor, i'm asking about donald trump and every presidential candidate going back 40 years -- >> look, i'm releasing my tax returns. donald trump will release his. i'll give mine to y'all this week and he'll provide his after a routine audit is done is there as far as mine are concerned the only one that cares is the press. it's no the a big deal. >> you don't think there are any voters. >> i think people don't care. >> i'm not sure about that. we've heard from a lot of voters saying they want to see his tax return and he is the only one in recent history not to release. >> we'll press him further and we also ask him about immigration, his speech in phoenix, and where he's going with undocumented immigrants. he does leave the door open in this interview for undocumented immigrants to stay had this country. you'll see how he answers that and the debate we asked about the debate too. anyone playing hillary, we asked. he said i'm not preparing in a traditional way.
we'll think about it. not even holding mock debates. >> everything has been untraditional. >> why should it change now? i think you have more to say about this and you will tonight, more of your interview on "world news tonight" with this guy, david muir. >> thanks, guys. back to school here. >> i know. it is. >> back to matthew dowd. >> i brought the pencil. >> our chief political analyst and martha raddatz will join us. let's talk about the new poll from cnn, shows donald trump among likely voters pulling ahead two-point lead within the margin of error. hillary clinton still leading among registered voters. interesting contrast. >> i think this poll is significant, probably the most significant piece of data we've sign in the entire general election and demonstrates among the people most excited, most engaged donald trump has a lead and that should concern the hillary clinton campaign. the other thing that i think should concern the clinton campaign coming out of the poll is that donald trump has now blown through his cap. he used to be capped at 42 or 43 now up to 45. he's at his personal best.
if hillary clinton thought she could coast in the home stretch of this thing she better tighten up her track shoes and buy a bigger box of cough drops and be prepared for a very, very close race. >> looks like a close race right now. and most of the candidates now are spending most of their time in about 12 of those battleground states where she does still hold a lead. >> she still does. if you take a look at the panoply of battleground states she leads almost every single one but one thing to keep in mind is the battle ground states are lagging indicators of where this race is. as the race changes nationally then the battleground states change. i would expect in the next week many of those battleground states blue now will go to purple. >> there hasn't been recent polling on that. let's bring in martha rad rats. martha, congratulations, you'll moderate that debate on october 9th and spending time in those states talking to voters in the key state of pennsylvania. >> exactly, george. you know, we talked to voters who reflect what poll numbers say about unfavorability. and the people we talked to who are clinton supporters have
serious trust issues with her. i heard that again and again. some of it is because of old controversies but a lot of people are absorbing the message that trump is putting out there that she's not telling the truth. as for trump the voters who are still trying to decide, especially there in pennsylvania, do worry about temperament issues despite what he told david muir. >> martha, matt, thanks very much. from an ongoing political storm to two tropical systems on the satellite, hermine spinning off the coast of new england as another storm, hurricane newton, makes landfall in cabo this morning and, of course, ginger is tracking it all. >> good morning. yes, cabo san lucas on attack there looking impressive, 90 plus-mile-per-hour winds, cat 1 and makes its way into the southwest. potential flash flooding but that's from nantucket where the wind is blowing and trees and power lines down. that's that same system we've been following for weeks.
you can see the track there. you know it made landfall in florida and went through the southeast. then this weekend people were going, ah, what about that hurricane we heard about? well, it became a post-tropical cyclone and kept going east leaving us drier. we are still under tropical storm warning up in parts of southern new england along the coast. michael? >> thank you, ginger. now to a big headline this morning about the flu vaccine in your children. and abc's dr. jennifer ashton joins us now with the details. good morning, doctor. >> good morning michael. >> just straight to it. what do parents need to know? >> for some historical perspective a few months ago the cdc evaluated the last three years of flu seasons, flu vaccines and found that the nasal flu vaccine, that nasal mist largely given to children really did not work. this morning the american academy of pediatrics came out with their recommendation, no surprise here, they echoed what the cdc said and saying the flu vaccine in the nasal mist form
should not be given to children. to be crystal clear here, they are recommending that every child above the age of 6 months gets the injectable flu vaccine. >> a lot would do that because the injectable is not comfortable for children. >> or adults. >> what do you tell patients about the importance of flu vaccine, there are a lot of people who don't take them. >> 100%. i take this seriously. i have been diagnosed with influenza twice, both times i thought i was going to die. i took care of a pregnant teenager who did die of complications of influenza. about 80% of the kids who die of flu were not vaccinated. take this seriously. talk to your child's pediatrician. >> you know what, thank you for your advice. i hope everybody heeds and accepts it. let's go to amy for today's other top stories, starting with more problems at the airport. >> unfortunately, michael. good morning, everyone. another computer outage is affecting a major airline, this time it is british airways having trouble checking in passengers just weeks after similar glitches at delta and southwest. in this case about a third of british airways' flights were delayed.
some were even cancelled. things are slowly returning to normal now. president obama has become the first sitting u.s. president to visit laos. he announced the u.s. will double the funding available to clear unexploded bombs from the vietnam war. meanwhile, the president of the philippines expressing regret for using a vulgar term to describe president obama. the white house canceled their meeting. well, conservative activist phyllis schlafly has died. she helped defeat the equal rights amendment in the '70s. she was an outspoken critic of the abortion and she was '92. fox news has settled the suit by gretchen karlsson. roger ailes who resigned from the company denied the allegations. other women have since come forward with even more accusations.
finally, serena williams is making history. she has won her 308th career grand slam match breaking roger federer's record while advancing to the u.s. open quarterfinals. now she will try to break the record for the most u.s. open titles ever. did you see who was in the audience? this guy and his lovely daughters. i loved your caption, michael. watching the williams sisters with these little sisters. a good time was had by all? >> the williams sisters may be nicer to each other than those two. >> oh, come on. >> i saw you at dinner. sweet as can be. >> when you're there. but they're great girls. >> great to have you back. i know you were out and about. you noticed something. >> i did and i'm going to have to tell you about it later. looks like we ran out of time. got to get to your local weather in 30 seconds.

face those assault charges. cosby has pleaded not guilty. look at this. 6-month-old making a splash. he can't crawl yet but his dad says he is now the youngest water skier ever. we're going to find out how he's doing it. is it too much too soon? >> mom staying close there. >> he's a strong kid for six months. that's all i can say. >> sure is. >> but i'm worried about the safety factor. >> just had to post it. just had to post that video. >> they are proud, i guess. we start out with the latest from chris brown speaking out about the intense standoff at his home with police. the singer's legal team insists it was a setup and matt has the rest. >> reporter: they provided us with what they say is the smoking gun, a text message from his accuser which they say shows the former beauty queen framed him adding that if any charges are going to be pressed, it's against her for providing false testimony to police. >> i cannot wait till the truth comes to light about this incident. >> reporter: this morning chris
brown hinting that nine-hour showdown with the lapd at his mansion was a setup. >> because, you know, my character has been defaced and who i am as a person and integrity. >> reporter: brown seen here in this video clip provided exclusively to abc news maintaining his innocence after being arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. >> i'm glad all my real supporters know me and the truth and they'll see it. >> reporter: authorities have been trying to piece together what really happened at the $4 million mansion after receiving this call at 3:00 a.m. last tuesday morning. >> two females, unknown, crying and asking for help. >> reporter: the former beauty queen had been in brown's home along with a dozen other visitors and told abc news she was looking at a box of expensive diamond jewelry. >> that's when chris came in and said, i'm so sick of all of you people. took the gun out like this, put it in my face and said get the "f" out. >> reporter: the singer remained inside blasting out angry
messages on social message. >> when you get the warrant you can walk up right in here and see nothing. you idiots. >> reporter: but abc news has now learned chris brown's defense team led by famed attorney mark geragos believed the r & b singer was set up by the accuser herself. his defense team sharing with abc news a text message purportedly sent by baylee to a friend just minutes before the 911 call was made. the text message reading, this freak, chris brown, is kicking me out of his house because i called his friend's jewelry fake. i'm going to set him up and call the cops and say that he tried to shoot me and that will teach him a lesson. i'm going to set his -- expletive -- up. >> were there any guns in the house at the time? >> there was a search that was done. they went in and said that they had a description of a piece of jewelry, that jewelry was not found in the house. they went in and she said that there was a gun. as far as i know the gun was not found in the house. >> reporter: also at the heart of the investigation the surveillance cameras on brown's
property. >> so there's no chris brown waving a gun? >> no >> no baylee looking at a box of jewelry. >> nothing. >> reporter: geragos a constant figure beside brown over the past decade again by his client's side while brown posted a $250,000 bail. a nearly identical scene to that standoff is expected to air in the upcoming abc drama series "notorious" based on geragos' life as a high profile attorney. >> you do exactly what i say. >> reporter: in your show "notorious" the character that plays you arrives to diffuse a situation very much like what you experienced -- >> so, yes, there is a little bit life imitating art. as i was walking through it i was thinking the same thing. >> reporter: brown who has not been charged will be arraigned in two weeks. now, baylee curran's people say she stands by her claims and they question the authenticity of that text message and told me if she had written a text so
explicitly incriminating herself, why would she have given her phone to police investigators. they clearly have plenty of work left to do. guys. >> matt, thanks very much. let's talk to dan abrams about that. matt hits on the big question. if this is real, this text is real sure seems leak a smoking gun. >> if this text is real and no other context out there, this case is over. i mean, this is it. sure, maybe there's an explanation somehow. maybe there is another text. maybe there is surveillance footage or other witnesses but if those words were said by her at that time, i don't see how prosecutors move forward. >> you say the case is over, they can't move forward against chris brown. what about charges against her? >> it's possible. if they become convinced she filed a false police report and they have to be convinced of that, she could face charges. that's what chris brown's team is now saying is that she's the one who should be facing charges here. not him. but i think it is fair to call this a smoking gun if it's authentic.
>> i think a lot of people would say even if he was set up, chris brown could have handled it better. >> he behaved terribly. look, this may not have been a standoff, right? mark geragos is upset it was called a standoff because geragos's position is i told him wait there, i'll be there eventually. i'll get there. when they get a warrant, et cetera, we'll let them in, no problem in brown did say that. >> you can argue against that. >> the media coverage of this was a little overstated, calling it a standoff, but for chris brown to go on instagram and rail against the police, it wasn't the police who decided to go to his house. they got a call from this woman alleging that chris brown pointed a gun at her. that's not their fault. >> they have to respond. >> they have to respond. >> so, look, chris brown can have other beefs with the police but at that time that was not a smart move in your goal is not to get arrested and not to get prosecuted, but, again, if this text is real, i don't think
there's going to be any prosecution. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. over to michael. what's up on the big board. >> thank you. coming up on our big board, dale earnhardt jr. putting the brakes on racing after a concussion. will he ever get behind the wheel again? we're going to find out about that. a woman accused of body shaming a perfect stranger on snapchat. will she face jail time? our insiders are going to be here in two minutes. there they are, looking good. robin will join me so stay right there. go anywhere. like on your commute.
or at the office. ahh! where'd he go? i'm in the break room. enjoy the bold taste of ocean spray any time or place. who know it wasn't a day at the beach...rough it. i'm in the break room. unless someone got buried. to the fullbacks... gearheads... and those with green thumbs. to the sticky... the stinky... even those who get a little icky. to all the beautiful mess makers, keep it up... with delta in2ition plus h2okinetic, you can. see what delta can do. the search for relief often leads here.s, introducing drug-free aleve direct therapy. a high intensity tens device that uses technology once only in doctors' offices. for deep penetrating relief at the source. new aleve direct therapy.
you should h you should have been with us during the commercial break. we got it all set out on the big board. it is time for our big board and team of insiders standing by live for more on the morning's top stories. sunny hostin here at the table. we'll talk to her in a minute. first let's start with the latest on dale earnhardt jr. the nascar fan favorite stepping away from the wheel for the season, saying he's suffering from concussion complications after that accident this summer. it's the fourth documented concussion of his career.
former nascar driver ricky craven is going to join us and talk about that as well. good to see you here. i know you went through this, as well and had some concussions during your racing days. tell us the experience you went through and what junior might be going through. >> good morning, robin. it's very uncomfortable, it's awkward, a little clumsy and may be paralyzing because you do not prepare for becoming compromised or injured. just like you don't prepare for getting into a wreck. you're dominated by winning races. and if you look at this 41 car tumbling through the air that's not something you prepare for. you react to it. so dale earnhardt jr.'s circumstance is this, he spent most of his life pushing the limits on how fast he can go in a car. what will that car give him and what will that racetrack allow him? what will his talent provide him. and then when you get hurt, you have to surrender. you're depending on the people around you, the doctors, your team. and that's not typical of an athlete. they want control. >> you talk about what the car will allow to you do.
it's really, at this point, what his body will allow him to do. he's not considering -- ricky, he said he's not thinking about retirement, he told his fans that but considering the circumstances, should he think about that? >> so we know this, he's having trouble with his vision. he's having trouble with balance and gotten out of a race car twice because of these concussions and i'm sure you can relate, michael, you don't always get to vote on this. number one, you got to become healthy again, right? that's the first hurdle you have to clear. number two, even after becoming healthy, you're 42 years old. you're about to get married. you're exposed to other things in life that are a lot of fun. do you want to take the risk associated with being a race car driver again? >> he has so many fans, so many fans. >> he has so many fans but then you got to weigh it and life after work. >> how do you do that? playing in the nfl having injuries and that, what ricky was talking about, how do you -- >> i think one of the hardest
things is not racing or not playing the sport is learning when to stop. i said, hey, the risk/reward is not worth it. my body has gone through enough. i have a long life to live after the game is over. >> and the reward, "gma." >> the reward of "gma," here every day. this is my reward for retiring, yeah. hey, ricky, thank you. thank you so much. now to possible jail time over body shaming. "playboy" model dani mathers came under fire after snapchatting this photo of a nude woman at the gym with the caption, if i can't unsee this then you can't either. the lapd has found the victim and charges against mathers could be coming and, sunny, you're here with more. >> you both spent some time in locker rooms isn't it a violation of girl code and guy code -- you're not supposed to even look at someone but take pictures. it's a violation of california
law. you can't take photographs of someone in a private setting without their consent when there's this reasonable expectation of privacy. . >> absolutely. we all think that the locker room that at a gym is a sacred place trying to become a better version and body shaming a 70-year-old who is at the gym. >> for what she posted what could she be faceing? >> six months in jail and a thousand dollar fine forde central nating these photos and taking them without the victim's concept. six months. >> she did post an apology. she said -- i know, i know because some people said she's apologizing for getting caught for doing what she did. how will that play possibly? >> i think the prosecutors are in the business of seeking truth and justice but also in the business of sending a message to society that says this we will not tolerate so maybe during a plea deal or maybe at sentencing the judge may look at this, you know, act of contrition but i think she's going to face charges, although i will tell you this, my 14-year-old son said it is possible to accidentally
snapchat a group and you think you're doing it just with one person. >> you don't have that kind of caption. >> there was a caption. >> she said she meant to sent it to just one friend, not the group. does that make it better? >> it doesn't for me. i felt violated for the woman. >> absolutely. >> and your son still schooling you on things. >> on technology. >> now to a summer of extremes at the box office that has hollywood scratching its head. for every blockbuster hit like "finding dory" and "bad moms," oh, that was so good, there were even more super size misses. i thought "ben-hur" would do better and "the bfg." just two disappointments that have studios concerned. larry hackett will weigh in. what's going on? >> basically you had sequel pileup. you had 14 sequels out this summertime. for most of us there's only ten weeks or so of the summer so somebody is going to fail there. you had very little choice. the fact of the matter if sequels, comic book movie, horror movies and no romantic comedies. a lot stayed away because there
were no offerings they wanted to see. >> "the new york times" says a lot of casual moviegoers aren't going to the movies. what do you think is keeping them away? >> think about what's happened to all kinds of media, television, magazines, newspapers. you have choice and you can stay home and binge-watch "narcos" instead of $18 in new york or los angeles to pay for a movie. you have lots of choices. unless it's something you really want to see, you'll go. the idea of turning up in a movie theatre and saying what's on is just fading. it's too much other things to do. >> everybody here, sunny, larry, ricky, do you go to the movies less because there's such great tv out there? >> sure do. >> no. >> you still go? >> movie night is friday night my husband. we do margarita and a movie. i have seen all of them. i haven't seen a blockbuster i don't love. i love them. >> margarita and movie. >> how about you two? >> i definitely go less. no question about it. >> ricky? >> i love movies but not as much
as i love "sportscenter" and "star wars". >> a man after our own heart. >> comfy chair wins out at all time. >> i like margarita and movie night. >> every friday. >> thanks to larry, sunny and ricky. that little boy, did you see this, can't even crawl but he's already waterskiing. >> unbelievable. >> the story behind the video next. come on back. next. come on back. don't let dust and allergens get between you and life's beautiful moments. by choosing flonase, you're choosing more complete allergy relief and all the enjoyment that comes along with it. when we breathe in allergens, our bodies react by overproducing 6 key inflammatory substances. most allergy pills only control 1. flonase controls 6. and six is greater than one. with flonase, more complete relief means enjoyment of every beautiful moment. flonase, six is greater than one, changes everything. ♪

with a benign brain tumor. after retiring from soccer last year, the 28-year-old mom-to-be is eight months pregnant with her first child with husband and nba player jrue holiday. he's announced he will sit out the start of the season with the new orleans pelicans because family comes first. >> they met at ucla. both standout athletes. the common ground for this relationship was not a classroom, it was the playing field. >> reporter: lawyer and jrue married in 2013. the couple sharing a love of sports, coaching and inspiring younger generations at this camp. >> for me this would be like my dream camp when i was a kid. jrue and i are both, our passion is giving back. >> reporter: according to "the new orleans picayune,"
the tumor is benign, operable and not a threat to their unborn daughter. it will have to wait until after the baby is born seeking solace in their faith lauren saying thank you for your thoughts and prayers as we navigate a difficult time. jrue telling the paper the pelicans haven't pressured him to come back but agreeing he should become a husband first. >> great organization there. that's in new orleans. dr. jen is back with us. a lot of good news here about it being benign, she's pregnant. what complications and they still have to operate? >> so when you talk about a tumor like this, even if it's benign and space occupying lesion as we say in medicine, it can grow to a point where it will compress or press on vital structures and cause symptoms. in pregnancy we do have to deal with pregnant women who have tumors, unfortunately, more often than you might think and it comes down to timing. the mother's health is always primary, and so it's a waiting game. so much of obstetrics is about the race against that clock. >> jrue was saying exactly the same thing, my wife comes first. that kind of support is crucial. >> it's vital. when talking about the support around a pregnant woman, it's her spouse or partner, it's her family, her friends, it's her community and in this case the
sports community and, in fact, the world at large. that is so important. it allows that pregnant woman to focus on her baby and let her circle focus on helping her. it's critical. >> can i give you a little shoutout? we had a minor family crisis with a baby and reached right out to dr. jen. thank you. you know what, dr. ashton will take your questions throughout the morning on twitter and facebook. really appreciate that. >> you bet. >> michael. >> thank you, robin. i see how ginger feels when she's out here in the rain. when we come back, lara is joining us. we'll find out how she's doing after hip surgery and we've got creative new ways to organize your summer photos. you don't want to miss it. so stay right there. n.

uprising. responsibly sourced material and it's under $20. this whole thing is $17.99. take a look. that's the "gma" summer. what's neat about this, i don't know about you, i'm not the most tech savvy in the world so putting things into a drop box and doing a layout takes time and effort. minimal effort. you can pull it off instagram. >> those are a lot more work. >> those are a lot of work. >> you don't have to go on a computer. >> you can do everything from your phone, there's no uploading, no dragging, no putting into a dropbox. 17.99. >> now you have no excuse not have to one of these. >> that's right, that's right. >> okay. what are some of the other creative options? there are a lot of other things you can do with the photos. >> there are. we thought about going beyond just sticking a picture in a picture frame so we did art. we did large scale from wemontage.com. removable photo wallpaper so it's huge and put it on a wall, take it down, move it around or from minted if you want something one of a kind, a little more artsy. i love location frames so i think we did one of you with your daughters in texas which is
