7:00 am
good morning, america. and breaking right now, donald trump surging in our brand-new poll, topping hillary clinton for the first time since may. as she battles back against that fbi investigation, defiant and demanding answers. >> i am sure they will reach the same conclusion they did when they looked at my e-mails. there is no case here. donald trump doubling down. >> the clinton crime spree ends. it's going to end on november 8th. >> both their campaign managers are here this morning with exactly one week until election day. breaking news for our viewers in the west. a deadly bus crash. at least six people killed when a school bus and commuter bus
7:01 am
collide. we have the latest. it's only november 1st but the black friday deals are already starting this morning earlier than ever. the big amazon savings coming your way. and dangerous dip. a couple's late night swim interrupted by a crocodile sliding into the pool, snapping and attacking. the race to get out. the whole terrifying encounter caught on camera. we'll get to that video. he got out of the pool, left her. but he came back for her. he came back for her. everybody is safe. good morning. good morning, america. we have a lot of news to get to. we hope everyone enjoyed halloween last night. >> i think everyone did. i don't think anybody had as much fun as the obamas who celebrated their last one in the white house. they there go. >> "thriller." >> kind of a dad dance there. >> we've seen him dance a little bit better than that. >> he did. but he was having a lot of fun last night.
7:02 am
and of course, we're just one week away from the election. a brand-new poll out. our new tracking poll shows donald trump ahead for the first time since may. it's a one-point lead right now, 46-45. very tight race. >> it comes after that bombshell announcement from fbi director james comey. the justice department is now fast-tracking their investigation into those e-mails that could be linked to hillary clinton's private server. clinton, as you can imagine, firing back. and cecilia vega is in westchester, new york, with her campaign. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning. the likelihood this investigation is complete before election day is low. but there is one thing that both hillary clinton and donald trump have in common. they're both using the investigation to rally their supporters to the polls. hillary clinton on her campaign plane overnight letting loose with staffers after spending her day on the trail trying to extinguish the political fire engulfing her campaign. >> i'm sure a lot of you may be asking what this new e-mail story is about. >> reporter: from cleveland.
7:03 am
>> there is no case here. and they said it wasn't even a close call. and i think most people have decided a long time ago what they think about all of this. >> reporter: to cincinnati, clinton putting on a defiant front. >> look, i've said repeatedly, um -- i -- i made a mistake. if they want to look at some more e-mails of one of my staffers, by all means, go ahead. look at them. and i know they will reach the same conclusion that they reached when they looked at my e-mails last year, right? >> reporter: that staffer, of course, huma abedin, hillary's top aide who hasn't been seen on the campaign trail since friday, when fbi director james comey announced that renewed investigation after new e-mails were discovered. those e-mails on anthony weiner's computer, abedin's estranged husband, part of a separate investigation accused of sexting with a minor. abedin's lawyer saying in a
7:04 am
statement her client only learned for the first time on friday from press reports of the possibility that a laptop belonging to mr. weiner could contain e-mails of hers. while the fbi has not contacted us about this, ms. abedin will continue to be as she always has been, forthcoming and cooperative. the white house staying on the sidelines. >> i'll defend nor criticize what director comey has decided to communicate to the public about this. the president doesn't believe that director comey is intentionally trying to influence the outcome of an election. >> reporter: but out on the campaign trail, donald trump sounding thankful for a pre-election day surprise. >> good job, huma. thank you, anthony weiner. >> reporter: hillary clinton's strategy seems to be to try to tackle this one head on. she's talked about this investigation repeatedly on the campaign trail. the big question this morning, how will this play out at the ballot box? nearly 25 million americans have already cast their ballots.
7:05 am
george? >> thanks, cecilia. we are joined by hillary clinton's campaign manager robby mook. robby, thanks for joining us. i take cecilia's last point about a lot of early votes already in the bank but our new poll shows donald trump ahead for the first time since may. pretty dramatic drop over the last ten days. are you worried this race may slip away from you? >> i'm not, george. but what we are focused on right now is making sure every single one of our supporters understands how important it is that they turn out and vote. you know, the polls are going to go up and down and have done that the whole time on this race. we have a week to go. we're running like we're 20 points behind. >> there is some evidence you have taken a hit since that announcement from director comey. you are now accusing him of a double standard. hillary clinton accusing him of bowing to partisan pressure. are you worried at all that will come back to haunt you? >> i don't think so, george. you know, director comey has been criticized from both sides on this now. you have a former attorney general under president obama,
7:06 am
former attorney general under george w. bush both saying it was a mistake. you've had former justice department officials saying it was a mistake. and then we've come to learn from anonymous leaks that are coming out that director comey's own superiors at justice warned him not to do this. this is a break in protocol. then just yesterday we found out it was director comey who was privately trying to prevent the report that the russians were the ones who stole e-mails from the dnc and from our campaign staff. >> "the new york times" is reporting this morning that fbi investigators have found no conclusive evidence of a direct link between trump and the russian government. do you accept that? >> well, what we are told they're investigating -- again, director comey said what he's doing with hillary clinton. he won't say what he's doing with donald trump. but what we're hearing from anonymous leaks is that they're investigating donald trump's ex-campaign manager over his connections to the russians. they're investigating carter
7:07 am
page, a gentleman who donald trump said was one of his foreign policy advisers. >> this is a preliminary ing wirry, not an investigation, to clarify the term. >> i'd like director comey to clarify that. he had no problem having a long press conference and editorializing about investigations into secretary clinton. i don't see why he can't come out and explain what's going on with donald trump. and it is particularly odd that he was the -- that he was the one who was privately trying to prevent the announcement that it was the russians, when 17 security agencies said it was the russians that were stealing our e-mails, he was the one trying to prevent that from being released. >> another report in "the new york times" suggesting donald trump may have avoided hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes by failing to report forgiven debt as income. now we are going to ask david bossie about that. but it sure appears mr. trump is going to avoid releasing his tax returns before the election. >> you know, george, this is unprecedented. for 40 years, people have gone to the polls having seen the
7:08 am
candidates' tax returns. early voting has already started. this is the first time in decades and what's particularly astounding about this recent report is that donald trump was writing off other people's losses. so not only did he not pay taxes for 20 years, he was writing off other people's losses. some of the loopholes he was using are now against the law. >> one week to go. are you going to win? >> we are going to win this election. but it's important that every one of our supporters turns out. >> robby mook, thank you very much. >> thanks, george. >> let's talk to david bossie, deputy campaign manager for donald trump. thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. >> david, you just heard robby mook say he's going to win. you're ahead in our newest poll but the electoral college is stacked against you. >> it is but we're in great shape. we're on offense everywhere. hillary clinton, robby mook is understands what is going on. there is an enthusiasm gap for their voters. we're showing mr. trump is having 10,000, 20,000 people show up at rally. they're having a hard time getting people. >> walk us through your path.
7:09 am
it is so narrow in that electoral college. >> you know what, it's narrow every four years. for us as the demographics have changed in these states. we're going to win. we're winning in florida right now. we're winning in north carolina right now. we're going to win ohio and iowa and that's the basis of our path to victory. >> public polls show her ahead in north carolina right now. but even if you win every state you just laid out, you still have to win other states that are solidly blue right now, like new hampshire. nevada or someplace like pennsylvania, michigan or wisconsin. >> and we're going to. we're going to pick off something. we're competing right now heavily in pennsylvania, in new hampshire, michigan, wisconsin. new mexico. nevada. we're going to -- >> you concede you're behind in all those states right now. >> we concede it's within the margin of error. we're not conceding we're behind. our enthusiasm. we have closed this gap as you pointed out dramatically over the last week, and we're going to continue to expand. mr. trump's message of hope, growth, and opportunity that he's bringing to every american
7:10 am
in every blue state is resonating with people. and that's why they want change. they want someone -- they don't want four more years of clinton investigations which i've lived through. >> you talk about clinton investigations. but we do have this story in "the new york times" this morning about donald trump and his taxes, suggesting that he wrote off hundreds of millions of dollars in other people's losses, even though his tax advisers said it was a dubious plan. and here's what they say. the tax experts say the maneuver trampled a core tenet or american tax policy by conferring enormous tax benefits on mr. trump or losing vast amounts of other's people money. don't the american people have a right to know what mr. trump did there? >> sure, you know, i'm not familiar with that quote but mr. trump's under audit. mr. trump is going to release his -- >> but this isn't under audit. this was in the early 1990s. >> he's been under audit every year for 15 years. this is a guy who lives under a constant microscope. >> those cases are closed. >> i understand that. so i'm not familiar with that exact whose quote that is in "the new york times" which obviously had a big problem with mr. trump. has been incredibly unfair to us. >> he's not going to release the
7:11 am
tax returns before the election? >> he's going to release them when his audit is complete. >> even though there are several returns not under audit? >> he's going to release them when he's not under audit. >> same question i asked robby mook. a week to go. are you going to win? >> we are going to win. our enthusiasm and ground game what the rnc, what reince priebus has built is tremendous over the last four years. we have an incredible team that we are working well together. >> david bossie, thanks very much. >> thank you. >> all right, george, thank you. we heard from the campaigns about their own paths to winning the election. but let's bring in jon karl to break down the strategies. let's begin, jon, with donald trump. >> well, good morning, robin. if you look at the polls you have seen some tightening like we've seen in the national polls in the states. but there's still a long way to go for donald trump. let's take a look at three of the most recent ones. in florida, trump is on the move. up 2. that's within the margin of error in the latest poll. but if you look at north carolina, another one of those must-win states for him, the most recent poll gives hillary
7:12 am
clinton an advantage with four. and then new hampshire, up seven in the latest poll. and we haven't seen a poll in new hampshire with a trump lead for a long, long time. so if you look at the map overall, this is the abc news race ratings. red states advantage trump, blue states, advantage hillary clinton. she still has a big advantage. to win, robin, what he needs to do is win every single one of the states that we classify as a toss-up. utah and arizona, traditionally republican out west. florida, north carolina, ohio. and even if he wins all of those states, even if he runs the table, he still is short of the 270 votes he would need to get elected to president and needs to flip a blue state. david bossie mentioned the state of pennsylvania. if he can win pennsylvania, a state republicans haven't won in 16 years, he does get to more than 270 and he would have enough to win. the bottom line here, robin, is that donald trump needs to run the table. needs to win every single one of
7:13 am
those toss-up states and even that will not be enough. >> let's go back for a moment, jon, to the new tracking poll, abc news tracking poll because people will wake up and see for the first time since may that donald trump is in the lead. >> yeah, so more than any single factor, what is driving that is enthusiasm. if you go back a week ago, trump had an advantage. his supporters were more enthusiastic about him than hillary clinton's supporters were about her. that has now flipped. so, you know, hillary clinton had -- i did it the wrong way. i'm sorry. hillary clinton had the advantage a week ago. now trump has the advantage. >> you know, we're in a place right now where it's possible that on either side, you could have one candidate win the popular vote and one win the electoral college. >> well, right now, if you look at our poll, and you take it literally, and it's within the margin of error, that is exactly what would happen. we've seen that happen before. >> we have seen it happen before. >> and we'll know exactly one week from today. we're going to have full team coverage for you starting tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. eastern. george will be anchoring with
7:14 am
our entire political team. you can also download the abc news app for breaking updates and live-streams. one week from today. we're going to turn to the breaking news for the viewers in theest. a deadly bus crash in baltimore. mary bruce is on the scene. >> reporter: police are describing this scene as catastrophic. saying it looked like a bomb went off when a school bus came driving down this road, slamming into this mustang and then careening head-on into a commuter bus. this morning, police investigating a deadly bus collision in baltimore. it's the dark early morning hours. 6:30 a.m., when a yellow school bus and a commuter bus slam into each other. >> i seen -- um -- that the school bus inside of the mta bus. it was hard to look at. it was very hard to look at. you know, seeing people removed from -- it's just a mangled mess. >> reporter: at least six people killed. the front of the school bus
7:15 am
completely crumpled. the side of the commuter bus ripped to shreds. the horrific scene two blocks from the local high school. but police saying no students were aboard the school bus. additional extensive injuries are reported. now, ten people have been transported to local hospitals with injuries ranging from minor to critical. in all, six people killed here this morning. including the driver of that school bus. what caused the bus to crash into this mustang is still under investigation? michael? and now, amy, you have the morn's other top stories. what do you got? >> that's right. thousands of commuters in philadelphia are now looking for a different way to get to work now that transit workers have gone on strike shutting down bus and subway service. the main contract issue is over pensions. the two sides are said to be far apart. and there are concerns a prolonged strike could keep some voters from getting to the polls next week. gas prices could rise following an explosion that has shut down one of the largest fuel pipelines in the country.
7:16 am
one worker was killed. several injured by the explosion during maintenance work in rural alabama. the same pipeline was shut down for 12 days back in september because of a leak that led to gas shortages across the south. well, we are now hearing the 911 calls made by the orlando nightclub shooter as the siege was under way back in june. police already knew about the shooting inside the pulse nightclub when their negotiator got on the phone with omar mateen, who was in the bathroom where he had taken hostages. >> hello. >> hello there. hi there. this is orlando police. whom am i speaking with please? >> you're speaking with the person who pledged his allegiance to the islamic state. >> can you tell me where you are right now? so i can get you some help? >> no. because you have to tell america to stop bombing syria and iraq. they're killing a lot of innocent people. you get what i'm saying? >> i do. i completely get what you're saying. >> police later busted through the wall, freeing those hostages.

bargains from now through december 22nd so get ready for the shopping. get ready for the contact sport. >> come on! >> it is a contact sport. >> sure is. not for me. >> scary. >> not for you? >> huh-uh. we move on to that dramatic testimony in the hot car trial. it's from the mother of the young boy killed when he was left in a hot suv by her ex-husband. steve osunsami has more. on the emotional moments in the courtroom. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. she was the star witness. and she agrees that just because this man was a bad husband doesn't mean he's a killer. it's the most compelling testimony jurors have heard so far. agreeing with justin ross harris and his lawyers, his now ex-wife and mother of the child he's accused of intentionally killing is coming to his defense. >> did ross love this little boy? >> yes, he did. very much. >> reporter: leanna taylor was brought to tears remembering the moment she learned her son cooper had died after he was left in this hot suv outside her
7:32 am
husband's atlanta office. >> cooper was the sweetest little boy. >> reporter: the boy's mother walked jurors through family photos and home videos showing harris to be a dedicated father. harris cried with her. he's charged with murder and is pleading not guilty, saying he simply forgot to drop the boy off at this day care. he and his 22-month-old son are seen here in surveillance video from a chick-fil-a restaurant that morning. earlier this year harris and taylor divorced. but she still told jurors harris was a good dad and that her son's death was an accident. >> it was the only thing that clicked in my mind as even a remote possibility, he was never checked in. if he was never checked in then he must have forgot. >> reporter: while she's no longer a suspect, police say they investigated taylor after she was overheard asking harris if he said too much to the authorities. taylor explained in court that at the time she didn't understand why harris was being
7:33 am
charged and thought maybe this was why. >> he talks a lot, even if he doesn't have anything to say. >> reporter: prosecutors argue that harris killed his son because he really wanted a child-free life. while his son was dying in this suv parked outside, harris was inside his office sexting with other women. taylor agreed they had marriage problems, but she told the court he was still a good father. >> he wanted to be with him enjoying every second he could with him. >> reporter: one other point to add. there were a number of accusations that harris looked up websites about hot car deaths before his son died. but that was knocked down pretty hard in court. hard for many to believe but there may be plenty of room for reasonable doubt in the case. george? >> let's bring that to our legal analysts, dan abrams and nancy grace, author of the new book, "murder in the courthouse." there it is right there. dan, let me begin with you. i want to pick up where steve left off. you've been following this case very closely.
7:34 am
every in and out. and your view shifted a little bit. >> after watching the prosecution's case and watching her testimony, not only do i think the case is weak i think he may be innocent of the murder charge. remember this claim about the child-free site he was on. turns out somebody sent him a link. what did he write back? grossness. remember the claim that he was trying to get a vacation without his child. well, turns out the night before his child died he reached out to a travel agent about a vacation with his child. you also have even some of these women with whom he was having an affair saying he said he would leave his wife except for the fact that he loved his child. he didn't want to leave his child. now you've got his ex-wife, ex-wife's testimony which is so powerful in his defense. and i'm starting to think this really, really could have been a horrible accident. >> reasonable doubt, nancy? >> well, i don't see the reasonable doubt. although, many of the things dan just said are true.
7:35 am
but you can't get around -- i mean, the hookers, the other women, the sexting, all of that is just the icing on the cake. you don't need it. the logistics of that day alone support the state's case. i went to the scene. i drove the distance he drove. the monitors in chick-fil-a that the jury is seeing showed the baby alive, alert, well, laughing. i've looked at them. i drove the distance. what, he forgot his child was in the backseat in two minutes? before he went into work he had to reach in the backseat to get his bag. he forgot his child? he goes inside. he sits there all day and doesn't remember. he even stages a trip to the car at lunchtime and foes goes in tr with the baby in the car. >> let's talk about that. which is one of these claims that was one of the most horrible claims. this idea that he goes back to the car at lunch time, a sort of staged effort to make sure that the child may be dead or something. it turns out he claims he needed lightbulbs. he threw lightbulbs into the
7:36 am

7:40 am
walk away. oh, caught us there. welcome back. time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's top stories and jon karl is back here, back by demand here at the table. we'll start with hillary clinton. hitting the trail on monday in the key swing state of ohio and, of course, this comes after that fbi e-mail bombshell. but how much do october surprises like this one actually affect the polls? you've been doing a little research. this is not the first time we've had something like this happen. >> at least now it's november so we don't usually have november surprises but, look, we've seen a bunch of these. here are a couple. one, i don't know if you remember 2000, five days before the election, news comes out
7:41 am
that george w. bush had been arrested for drunk driving years earlier in maine. i'll never forget when the news broke. i was covering al gore with him in new mexico. that clearly had an impact on the race. you looked at the polling before the race, bush had a comfortable lead. the polls closed and as you remember we had virtually a tie on election day. but then if you look, there are some others that people thought at the time would have an impact and didn't. october 29th of 2004, osama bin laden releases a tape and everybody thinks this is going to help george w. bush and plays up terrorism. it had virtually no impact on the race. another one, kind of echoes this one. i'll give you one more, 1992, the other george bush, cap weinberger secretary of defense for reagan is indicted on october 30th. indicted, a second indictment. this brings up the iran-contra thing. this looks really bad for bush. bush was down when the news came out. he actually if you look at the polling might have come up a little bit and then, of course, he lost anyway. it didn't have much of an impact. >> those were things in the past.
7:42 am
how is this october surprise going to affect this election? >> you got october surprises on both sides. >> we've had so many october surprises. i mean, my god, the whole campaign has been a surprise. i think this one has clearly already had an impact. we talked earlier in the show about the enthusiasm for hillary is down and for trump it's up. clearly had an impact. i don't think it will have a decisive impact on the race. but it's definitely had an impact. >> because it seems like, at this point, people have pretty much made up their mind. >> not a lot of undecided voters out there. should i vote for hillary, should i vote for trump? do either one of you ever do uber or lyft? >> yeah, sure. uh huh. >> here's something for both of you. next up we have an alarming new study about uber and lyft. they found evidence of racial discrimination and sexism by some drivers. and becky worley is joining us now. and becky, i use the service. as you see, everybody here does. what is the study telling us? >> well, michael, ubering while
7:43 am
black or female is harder than it is for white men. let's get the numbers. researchers conducted experiments on the three big ride-sharing services. we're talking lyft, uber, and flywheel. for riders with black-sounding names, more rides were canceled by the drivers. and for those same riders in seattle, wait times 29 pk longer. for women, the rides took 6% longer and so they cost more. the authors explain that as a combination of profiteering and flirting to a captive audience, the takeaway when user profiles indicate race and male drivers have women passengers in the car there is a quantifiable difference in service. >> how are the companies responding to this research, becky? >> you know, the folks at lyft saying their service did better than uber in the study and added lyft has had a positive impact
7:44 am
on communities of color. they go on, because of lyft, people living in underserved areas, which tax sis have historically ignored, now are able to find rides. and they told us they don't tolerate discrimination in any form. uber says taxis were problematic and they acknowledge the issue. they say studies like this one are helpful in thinking about how they can do even more. so we'll see. >> all right. >> maybe coming up with a way not to show your name. >> that would be a way of going about it. all right, becky. thank you very much. well, maybe, they're taking uber and lyft to the game tonight. because up next, that big game. the cleveland indians back at home. and one game away, as you know, from winning it all. but the cubs are putting up a fight. espn's eduardo perez is on the indians field right now. good for you to get up and join us. okay, just tell us, what do you think is going to happen tonight? >> well, i think the cleveland indians are going to win and one of the biggest reasons is because they play really well at home. now, this is the problem.
7:45 am
the chicago cubs have two big guys going for them in game six, jake arrieta and potentially game seven with kyle hendricks which is the favorite to win the cy young. two cy young award winners if hendricks wins it. this is very big for the cubs. the cubs need to keep it on the ground in order to win the game. this is the other issue, cleveland doesn't believe that the cubs are going to win. so much so that the cavaliers moved their game next door to 6:00 instead of 7:00 start to see if their fans will then watch the game here or just jump on over, with the cavs, and get a suite and watch the cleveland indians get the championship. >> looking out for the celebration they're thinking. okay. >> but another reason you think they'll win is because you predicted they would win in six. so you need your prediction to come true. what do they have to do to make your prediction come true? >> well, one thing that they'll
7:46 am
have to do is get josh tomlin the starter, if he can throw at least four solid innings you can get the ball to andrew miller. he's been lights-out all post season. he's been phenomenal with that sweeping slider. guys have been swinging and missing through it. getting the ball to allen. all you have to do for terry francona is get to the bull pen. miller did not throw for the last two days. he's fresh, ready to go. and if they score runs it could be all over for the cubs. >> all right, so we know what you feel. becky, what is your call? what is your call? >> i'm rooting for football. >> what? >> sorry. i'm out. i got nothing. >> the biggest thing is i'm rooting for game seven. this has to go to game seven and i want the cubs to win in game seven, on the road, just like the cavs won on the road. >> give me something. we got to break that curse. >> what about you? >> i'm with jon. i want it to go seven. the cubs have been -- >> i don't know if george will let us go back and sit with him at the desk after this. >> oh, you know, it's a win/win.
7:47 am

a virus that's serious, like hiv, but it hasn't been talked about much. a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured. be sure to ask your doctor to get tested for hep c. for us it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.

8:34 am
glory and we all know they get the interviews and commercials and everything but when you don't get that, how does it affect the rest of your life? i went back and looked at starting with super bowl iii. the coals getting up set by the jets and looked at the '86 world series, michael jordan, dan jansen at the olympics. the super bowl when the patriots had the perfect season, your giants upset them. but we talked to people on losing end to find out how they bounce back from that adversity or attempted to. because i think there's life lessons for all of us. every day won't go perfect. we'll have hathings to overcome. what lessons can we get? >> what are some that you learned in sharing stories. >> i think one of the things pete carroll was really instrumental in doing this and talked about having lost the super bowl two years ago down to the goal line. >> why didn't he make that call? >> people are still asking that question. you no he, because they were on the verge of doing back-to-back. he believed in the process of
8:35 am
that's what they were going to do. he and his team examined right away why they lost that game and took responsibility for it. that's the only way you have to move forward. that's what i learned. i look at his example about trying to rebound immediately and being honest and truthful with yourself as to why it happened and somebody like calvin by recall di and everybody blames big buckner but he blew a one-run lead and two-run lead in the tenth. >> everybody talks about that. >> nobody talks about him yet 30 years later his wife said we're getting a divorce because he put up all these walls to protect himself. he only pitched in the majors four more years and said it was because of the adversity and the way people treated him after that. >> overreaction when you said that. that's so startling to hear something like that. isn't it? >> he retreated and 0 years later his wife said you're not the guy that i met, that i married. he started therapy in 2013 and i juxtapose him not addressing the problems that he had right away
8:36 am
and it affected his life and marriage and pete carroll said let's deal with this. >> great transferable life lessons to any scenario. i did not know that story. that is remarkable. >> you know what, let's go from books to dogs. >> i love this stovry. >> i got two rescue dog, abby, a 5-year-old lab. and toby who's just over a year old and runs the house, a corgi french bulldog. >> did you say toby? >> there's yours. >> oh, yeah. >> we have somebody that we really -- >> that's toby right there. >> get ready to meet our toby. this is a 10-year-old beagle looking for a new home. toby, come on out here. >> toby. >> you can have three. >> put him on the table. >> he's a senior so he's a little set in his ways. >> we wanted you to meet toby.
8:37 am
this is one of the many, hundreds of dogs we are working to find forever homes in this mon and we've gotten some great numbers for you which i cannot wait to share with you but toby's story was really -- he was a bit of a heartbreak story and stole our hearts at our livestream event in philadelphia. the story with toby is he found his home as an adult two years ago with two owners that absolutely loved him and loved saving beagles. sadly the mom owner passed away and then shortly thereafter the dad passed away so toby found himself back in the shelter. he thought he was in his forever home. so happy and i guess the message for us is don't just consider puppies and small dogs. i've adopted a full grown dog. they're already trained and they're so grateful. their demeanors are set and get a real idea of who they are before you bring them home and toby is just one of those many examples. >> he likes you. he's staring at you. >> oh, hi, toby. >> uh-oh. somebody is going home with another dog.
8:38 am

8:44 am
>> it's the room that people see first when they come to the white house so i think it should be a pretty room. >> reporter: people have been eager for a glimpse of the private quarters of 1600 pennsylvania avenue and how each presidential family makes them their own. >> i think the obama family has made their biggest mark on the personal quarters through artwork. it has a slightly more modern contemporary -- maybe a slightly edgier feel. >> reporter: working with designer michael smith, michelle obama chose works from contemporary artists like robert roushenberg and alma thomas, the first african-american female artist to be featured in the white house. >> we know mrs. obama has gone to great efforts with her own wardrobe and the statement that makes and i think the artwork is a piece of that, is a continuation of making a statement of inclusiveness. >> reporter: in some cases they also kept things the same. a mirror, mantel and sideboard from george bush's administration, still in the same spot for the family that followed. a link in the long tradition of very private rooms for a very
8:45 am
public family. >> i hope they'll be an inspiration to the next inhabitants. >> pretty cool stuff, huh? >> really nice style. >> michelle and her designer leaned heavily on history reading the letters of previous first ladies and speaking to jackie kennedy's sister lee radziwill. it will hit newsstands soon. >> no flea marketing there. coming up here though, is there a doctor in the house?

done and it just melds the real with the unreal in a seamless way. it's probably stunning to watch. >> you know what i appreciate as well, the humor. >> yeah. >> the humor. >> that's such a great sort of part of marvel and there's definitely -- you need a little bit of that when you're playing a surgeon who turns into a sorcerer. it's not your everyday character. >> exactly. >> it was great, great fun to do and thank goodness for scott derrickson's sense of humor. if he was funny, then i knew it would carry. >> well, the cast and everyone, the direction and all that. what was it like for to you play dr. strange? >> it was just incredible. you know, this job first and foremost was an acting gig. he's this extraordinary neurosurgeon, and he's kind of built a gilded cage without knowing it and goes from there to a place of utter selflessness where by the end of the film you're looking at him on his own choosing a path that's about other people and you think, yeah, okay, you are now an avenger and i believe you'll join them. >> and it is the whole part of the marvel process and it keeps growing and growing like that. but we get to see you doing all
