i almost did a danceable for it. clemson's defensive lineman, christian wilkins, he summed up how i feel about being back on the show. check this out last night. this is a defensive lineman, over 300 pounds, with the splits. that's called happy and celebrating. congratulations to those guys. >> he's got the moves. oh, no, he didn't. >> oh. once again. oh, and the team so excited. quarterback deshaun watson telling his team with two minutes to go, i love this, he said, let's be legendary, let's go be great, and they were and a lot of people bereft. did you guys see the gun show? >> you loved this. >> he was trending all night long. >> i want his workout program. >> a lot of people do. we'll talk to him. jesse is live in tampa coming up. it's going to be a very busy day on capitol hill. >> a look live at capitol hill. it'll be busy there. first confirmation hearings for president-elect trump's cabinet nominees. they start this morning. alabama senator jeff sessions for attorney general. retired general john kelly for homeland security up first.
abc's congressional correspondent mary bruce on capitol hill for all of it. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george. this is a big moment for the new administration and the start of these marathon confirmations, over the next three days, ten hearings with eight nominees. first up as you mentioned senator jeff sessions for attorney general. you can expect him to be grilled on immigration and civil rights to take center stage. already we've seen some protestors in that hearing room. it was 31 years ago sessions appeared before a panel and he was rejected for a federal judgeship over concerns he made racist remarks. those are charges he has passionately denied. now sessions will have his fellow senators testifying on his behalf. but in an unprecedented move, democratic lawmakers will be testifying against him. despite concerns, they don't have the power to block them and the president is adamant they will all be confirmed.
>> they're going great. confirmations are going great. >> there's some concern about jeff sessions in particular. >> no, i think he's going to do great. high quality man. >> reporter: also here on capitol hill today, fbi director james comey is facing questions for the first time since his bombshell announcement about his investigation into clinton's e-mails right before the election. today he'll be testifying on russia's intelligence activity just four days after he briefed the president-elect on russia's interference in the u.s. election. george? >> he will get a lot of tough questions. thanks very much. let's go over to robin. >> donald trump also announcing a big role for his son-in-law naming his daughter ivanka's husband as a senior white house adviser. abc's cecilia vega is here with the details. never a dull moment. >> no, and i think it's going to go this way for probably four more years i think you could say. so look, this news is coming on jared kushner's 36th birthday. this was a close confidante for
donald trump behind the scenes and in the campaign and now he's going in as the senior advisor to the president. he'll be there in the west wing. we do know that he won't be taking a salary when in there. it's not the first time the white house has turned into a family affair. jfk, of course, we know appointed his brother as attorney general. we remember hillary clinton on those health care panels, she was there during her husband's administration. this time ethics experts are really split on whether this kushner appointment might be violating some federal anti-nepotism laws. there are also questions about potential conflicts of interest. he runs part of his family's real estate empire. he'll be stepping down from that and he's also the owner of the ""new york observer"", he will be stepping down from that as well. and also we're told be divesting substantial assets but, you know, democrats right now are calling on at least some of them, the d.o.j., to investigate his new role in the white house. >> they will take a look but we have seen something similar like this before so not surprising in that regard. and ivanka has pretty much been very firm that she does not want a role with the white house, ivanka. >> a lot thought she would go into the white house given her
role as a confidante for her father. sources are telling us at this point she will not immediately have a formal role in the white house, that she's instead going to be concentrating her family on settling into d.c., that they have that big move coming up. >> and big inauguration coming up and donald trump feeling it could very well be a record setter. but he went so far as to say that dresses are sold out there in d.c.. >> some people are scratching their heads saying you're being sworn in in a couple of days and you're talking about the stock of inaugural ball gowns in the nation's capitol. i know you were curious. we called around. a lot of dress stores, there is no shortage of ball gowns in the nation's capital so, ladies, you're good to go. >> thank you for that. george. >> okay, let's talk to jon karl and martha raddatz. jon karl with me and let's begin with jared kushner, this appointment of jared kushner. going to be in the white house. not taking the salary. what you've got now, though, are four very powerful people around donald trump with equivalent roles, jared kushner, you have kellyanne conway, steve bannon as chief strategist, reince priebus as chief of staff. >> you have a team of rivals basically right outside the oval office door.
reince priebus is the chief of staff but stephen bannon is the chief strategist, a role we haven't seen before and i would argue that jared kushner is more powerful than all of them. >> first among equals? >> first among equals and also the one he can't fire. but look, this will be an interesting thing because their views are different. i mean priebus is an establishment republican, chairman of the party. stephen bannon led the rebellion against the party leaders and if you look at jared kushner's background he was known as a new york city liberal democrat. >> except it appears he struck an alliance with bannon during the campaign. >> he did. this will test that alliance. >> let's go to martha raddatz right now. you have hearings beginning today, martha. the attorney general today but tomorrow the big ones begin on national security, general james mattis for defense secretary. rex tillerson, of course the head of exxonmobil for secretary of state. let's talk about that first.
he had good meetings with senators but will face real questions not only about russia but what exxon did in iraq and subsidiary dealings with iran. >> reporter: that's exactly right, george. i think that's where the questions will be toughest. he was considered a good friend of vladimir putin, rex tillerson. of course he was in the role of ceo of exxon and i think that's the kind of case he will try to make. it was a very different deal there when he was a businessman. now america's chief diplomat. of course those dealings with iran as well. there were sanctions in place at the time. again, i think he'll make the case that he was a businessman then. >> meanwhile, general james mattis defense secretary, kelly homeland security, michael flynn former general as national security advisor who is outranked by the two generals in the cabinet. >> reporter: this is all very unusual, george, but picking generals gives you instant credibility. the american people hold them in high regard and so does donald
trump despite some of his campaign rhetoric. he said last month, i like generals. i think generals are terrific. they go through schools and sort of end up at the top of the pyramid. they pass the test of life. that is true. they have enormous experience and they know how to lead. they know the price of war and they have in one way or another stared down the enemy. what will be interesting to watch is how the interaction with the president trump will play out. >> meantime, jon, more pressure building in the congress in the senate to delay this repeal of obamacare. >> this is the big thing for the republican congress. this was to be agenda item number one, repeal obamacare and spend much of the rest of the year trying to figure out how to replace it. now you have five republican senators signing on to a measure that would say, let's push this vote off for about another month or so until we can figure out what we want to replace obamacare with. this was not the plan for house republicans. what's interesting, this seems to be exactly what president-elect donald trump wants. he wants to be sure there's
something to replace it before we have full-blown repeal. >> see if he gets his way, jon karl, martha raddatz, thanks very much. lots of big events coming up. abc news covers it all and i'll be anchoring our live coverage of president obama's farewell address tonight at 9:00 eastern and president-elect trump's first press conference tomorrow morning. check out these pictures of the horrible flooding out west and rob marciano is in the middle of it all in san jose, california. good morning, rob. what's going on out there? >> reporter: hey, michael. we had about a 12-hour break but now the rain picked up again and the river here in san jose, one of many creeks and rivers that rise and fall with each one of these water-packed storms that rolls off the pacific. overnight, homes and businesses underwater in sonoma county, california. this building used to house a mini golf and arcade. heavy rains here causing the russian river to crest up to 35 feet. >> really the last time that
there was significant floods like this were more than a decade ago. >> reporter: at least 3,000 evacuated. >> the water gets in the house. that's about it. that's all i'm worried about. >> reporter: up in the hills of guerneville a mudslide 50 feet wide crashing through this man's home. >> we're right at the edge and we're holding out until it takes us over. >> reporter: in santa cruz, a dangerous slide, trapped and injured, a photographer from our san francisco station, kgo, inside his news van. partially crushing the vehicle. surrounding him with live wires and debris. another slide, this one in napa county, and it hasn't even rained that much today. you've got rugged terrain and this sandstone which is brittle stuff. plus a foot of rain, it's going to come crashing down. in gardena, a dramatic rescue. two women pulled from the surging san gabriel river. after they were swept from the river bank into the water. and in colorado heavy winds causing dangerous driving conditions. dust and debris blowing across the highway causing near blackout conditions. semi truck after semi truck falling over like dominos.
the back wheels of this one lifting right off the road. these storms are certainly packing a punch with the wind as well but we're most concerned about the water. now we have two more that are rolling in and ginger zee is tracking all that back in the studio. good morning, ginger. >> rob, thank you so much, for showing us all that. you have to see these storms, the first one from the weekend made its way into the midwest and great lakes moving through with winter weather but the storm that's coming in this afternoon and evening for the west coast is the next one we're most concerned about, the high sierra and wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and flood watches for up to a half foot of rain on what has fallen so see the russian river in the heart of sonoma county could go to 37 1/2 feet. quick look at how much rain will fall. mudslides, flooding, and right here in the northeast, we're going to warm up so no more skiing on the beach, all right. this is not happening as of the midweek. i'll tell you in just a couple of moments. >> all right, ginger, thank you. now to a manhunt in florida for the alleged killer of an
orlando police sergeant. a 17-year veteran and mother who was patrolling a walmart when she was shot. officials are now searching for this man considered armed and dangerous. abc's eva pilgrim has more. >> reporter: this morning, a massive manhunt. police searching for this man they say gunned down an orlando officer. >> we have one officer shot en route to ormc. >> reporter: a shopper alerting sergeant debra clayton, a 17-year veteran on duty outside this walmart, that a wanted murder suspect was in the store. >> he had a security vest on and he just walked right by me and i came out and next -- i'm walking right past the officer and heard her tell him to stop or whatever and he shot her. he shot her down and took off running. >> reporter: sergeant clayton dying at the hospital. the suspect getting away, firing at one deputy's car, carjacking another. dozens of schools locked down. s.w.a.t. teams swarming an apartment complex going door to door looking for lloyd. two deputies searching for the shooter in motorcycle crashes.
one deputy, norm lewis, known as a gentle giant, was killed. the 41-year-old already a wanted man, his pregnant girlfriend shot at her front door last month, a warrant issued for his arrest. >> going to get me some more muscles, man. >> reporter: investigators scouring lloyd's facebook page for clues. lloyd posting this two weeks ago "goals, to be on 'america's most wanted.'" >> i can tell you that it doesn't matter where he is, we will track him down to the ends of the earth, trust me on that. >> we are bringing this dirtbag to justice. >> reporter: police want to get this guy off the street. they're offering a $60,000 reward for information that leads to his arrest. robin. >> hopefully they will find him soon. all right, eva, thank you. >> amy has the morning's other top stories starting with a u.s. raid in syria. >> that's correct. good morning, everyone. a u.s. special operations force conducted a ground raid in syria. targeting isis leadership. the pentagon is refuting claims by a syrian human rights group
that 25 firefighters died. a man described as a midlevel isis leader was reportedly killed in the firefight. new details about a chairlift crash at a colorado ski resort. kelly huber was killed and her two daughters injured when their chair slammed into a support tower throwing them to the ground. investigators blame a mechanical problem with the electric drive control which they say caused that ski lift to jolt forward. police in oklahoma city have released images of the moment a boy was nearly abducted at a wrestling tournament, searching for the man in these pictures. they say he picked unthe 8-year-old but then let go when the boy started kicking and screaming. and finally, a driver in michigan got a ticket from police without ever leaving his driveway. he was warming up his car, went back into the house for a couple of minutes, he said seven minutes. that ticket now cost him $128. it isn't a state law in michigan but it's his town that passed the law against leaving a car running with the keys in the ignition even if it's in your own driveway.
police say the law is aimed at reducing car thefts which have been driving up insurance rates. >> even if it's freezing? >> even if it's freezing. they say you can do the remote start because the vehicle is locked but you cannot leave your keys in the car unlocked with it running. >> didn't we do a story on this a few weeks ago? >> we did. we said you might get ticketed but $128 is pretty steep. >> that's true. >> but $128 is cheaper than losing your car. >> there you go. >> it's all relative. >> that's what it's about. last night, everybody is a little tired because it was a game and what a game it was. yes, the clemson tigers waking up happy this morning. big smiles on their faces after beating alabama in a dramatic championship rematch. our own jesse palmer was there for all that at raymond james stadium. hey jesse, good morning, man. >> hey, michael, good morning, brother. i'm here at the winning team's hotel, clemson's hotel. it was crazy last night at raymond james stadium. the clemson tigers and alabama crimson tide squaring off for the second year in a row for the national championship and it all came down to those final
seconds. >> clemson tigers, new kings of college football. >> reporter: overnight, the making of a college football classic. number two clemson ending number one alabama's perfect season in a showdown for the history books. >> it's finally coming home, baby! it's coming home! >> reporter: the tigers clawing back, beating the crimson tide 35-31. >> touchdown! >> reporter: heisman trophy winner runner-up deshaun watson connecting with hunter renfroe with just one second left on the clock for the game-winning, come-from-behind touchdown. >> i kind of just threw the ball and made sure he caught it. that's what he did. something we worked on all year long. it was the perfect time to call it. >> reporter: for much of the game it was a different story. >> all the way to the end zone, touchdown, 'bama. >> reporter: the crimson tide dominating from the beginning rolling into the end zone for a 14-0 lead early on and showing off its tough defense. >> no one to throw to and he'll be sacked. >> reporter: but it wasn't enough.
the tigers came roaring back, making clemson the national champions for the first time since 1981. the team rushing the field celebrating with cartwheels, splits and some tears, giving coach dabo swinney a gatorade shower. >> it's indescribable. i mean, you can't make it up. i said tonight we're going to win it because we love each other. man, just so thankful and blessed. it just doesn't even seem real to me. >> and it goes without saying the clemson tigers so excited. coming up, we're going to hear from some of the winners, plus the surprise star on the field that wasn't even one of the players. guys? >> what are you talking about? what could you be referring to? you were hoping for a penalty because then you could see it. >> what a great game. thank you, jesse. let's go back to ginger. what you got? >> i like that, robin. hold. arrr. so we're really watching that

>> it broke my heart when i saw it and i still can't get it out of my head because it wasn't a movie. it was real life. >> you have perhaps the most highly regarded actress of her generation making an outright plea to people in hollywood to remain vigilant and to defy. >> reporter: donald trump may dismiss streep now as one of the most overrated actresses in hollywood, but just two years ago he called her work excellent. it's only prompted her fans to make this hashtag trend. things trump thinks are overrated. emmy rossum tweeted, tax, audio recordings, factual information, spelling. another listed, "hamilton," jon stewart, jerry seinfeld, megyn kelly. >> this week tweeted the best tweet, wow, what a great, smart tweet. >> reporter: he's called "snl" unwatchable and yet he can't seem to stop watching. ♪ trump even took to task the new star of his old show, mocking
arnold's ratings the first week on "apprentice." schwarzenegger tweeted back i hope you'll work for all the american people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings. trump is almost a member of this elite hollywood club. he once did a song and dance number at the emmy awards. ♪ green acres is the place to be ♪ >> reporter: he's done dozens of cameos over the years from "fresh prince of bel-air." >> throw in another 50 grand and i'll cut the grass for you every saturday. >> reporter: to "home alone 2." >> down the hall to the left. >> reporter: even as he's about to take the most powerful job celebs don't seem to be all that intimidated for now. the same may not be true of their bosses. >> the hollywood studios have a lot to lose under a president trump. i think that's why you're seeing the studio heads quiet on this issue or even coming out and being a little bit more gracious towards the new administration. >> reporter: plenty of folks say
political speeches just don't belong at awards shows, that it's liberal hollywood doing what they do, but by engaging it's trump who risks coming across as petty. in 2015 "the hollywood reporter" asked donald trump his favorite actresses. he named julia roberts and guess who, meryl streep. >> meryl streep. okay, david wright, thanks very much. joining us larry hackett former editor of "people" magazine and abc news political contributor kristen soltis anderson. let me begin with you, larry. donald trump kind of has a hate/love relationship with hollywood. it did seem like this one got to him. >> it really did. first of all, i want to say it was riveting television. the idea people don't want to see this kind of thing, i think that's debatable. i don't think people want to hear speeches thanking their agent and family so i think it was great stuff. i think he derives energy from this, right? he knows the entire nation is watching. he engages in debate now. now here we are a day and a half later talking about it. i think he really derives
political energy from these kind of things. and let me point out, back in june, meryl streep appeared at a fund-raiser for the public theater in new york. not a lot of people wearing it wearing a fat suit and wig about donald trump. i think that is part of the reason -- >> might have remembered that, as well. >> kristen soltis anderson, larry is correct that the president-elect gets some energy from all this. clearly had that energy yesterday when he was tweeting but digs himself somewhat of a hole when he reminds everybody of that moment where he was mocking "the new york times" reporter. of course, he denies it but it gives everyone an opportunity to show the tape again. >> sure, in meryl streep's speech she sort of implies that part of donald trump's appeal was when he does things like insults reporters, mocks other people. i don't think that's why most people voted for donald trump. i think in some cases they voted for him in spite of the fact he had done those things. but certainly donald trump was able to survive the whole campaign with those kind of criticisms coming his way so it's unlikely that meryl streep in her speech to the folks at the golden globes was changing a lot of minds about donald trump. >> i don't think she was trying to change minds but my question
is, is donald trump helping himself when he gets up in the morning and tweets about it? >> well, he loves a good conflict. he loves fighting against any sort of elite establishment that he feels he hasn't been sufficiently allowed to be a part of, whether that's the media, whether that's hollywood. he -- i agree that he derives a lot of energy and that he's never lost, i think, in picking these sorts of fights because it energizes people that like him and puts him on the side of a debate where most americans tend to not pick the big elite, tend to not pick hollywood or the media. if it's donald trump and football versus meryl streep and hollywood, i think i know which side is probably going to win that argument. >> it's interesting, a paradox. i think by making that streep meryl streep was saying let's not normalize his behavior. trump tweets again and we become inured to the idea he tweets about these things and that ends up normal liesing that kind of behavior. >> larry hackett and kristen soltis anderson, thanks so much. michael. >> we have a big board coming up in two major medical headlines. huge debate raging about

to remember is to save lives. this study did not look at lives saved. it also started enrollment in 1980 when the technology from mammography was not what it is today. but it talks about the concept does every cancer need treatment and that is going to be a hard pill to swallow for doctors and patients to tell a woman, you have cancer, but we're not going to treat it because it's never going to kill you. that's the dcis realm which is called that stage zero. >> you know, when you talk about treating all cancers, you have to talk about the downside of that, as well. what this study found was that by doing screening, they looked at half the country started scene screening and half didn't. the screening program didn't cut down on the number of women who ended up having aggressive breast cancer and the reason that matters is that if a lot of these cancers that are being picked up never would have caused a problem, then you have all of these women who are suffering the side effects of treatment which could be future cancers, which is not a small thing, the side effects of damage of chemotherapy and other
things to the body. the goal of a screening program is to pick something up early and make a difference and save lives. if you're not saving lives then you have to say, what are we doing here in putting all of these women through this treatment. >> there's so much controversy here and i can feel the passion coming from you two. but what do you think needs to be done to fix the screening issues? >> i think there's a couple of things. first thing we need better screening tests. you need a screening test that will be able to say to a person we found this lump here. but this one we can tell isn't going to cause any problems and we're not there yet. and we have to be able to say, okay, who are the right women to screen at what ages? are there certain things we can tell based on their genetics and family history, you need to screen starting at age 40, you can wait till 50. >> i agree with most of that. the controversy and what gets me hot under the collar is that media and the medical community alike always boils these studies down to one line, mammograms don't work. mammograms are bad.
mammograms don't save lives and, "a," i disagree with that as a woman's health specialist. "b," until we provide an alternative, i think to bash mammograms is tantamount to a war on women and that's what gets me upset. >> i remember where there was a debate about self-exams. hello, that's how i found my lump by self-exam. a mammogram did not detect the tumor. an ultrasound did. it's not one size fits all. >> no. >> i don't see this as a war on women. i think what the goal here is to make sure that women aren't getting overtreated and i think, you know, men are getting overtreated with -- for prostate cancer and there are a lot of women who i think are getting overtreated. we need to do more to make it work for them. >> with an alternative. >> we have another medical question for you two even though -- >> bring it on. >> how about this, botox for millennials. there's a new book out called "botox nation" saying younger women are aggressively targeted in hopes they'll be lifetime customers of the botox -- >> rich, don't you think it should start in the delivery room?
why wait? >> as a pediatrician. >> baby botox. >> what do you think about that? it's a strategy and why go after people who don't even have wrinkles. >> it's one word, money. it is about money. it is about changing the perception of what's normal and you're talking -- you know, let's start with women in their 20s so that they won't go on to develop wrinkles. i like my wrinkles. i smile a lot. i get a lot of wrinkles here. i don't want to lose them. when i'm watching an actor on tv i want to know are they happy or are they sad? look at the faces and it's like, i have no clue. >> don't you think we have more pressing problems in medicine than to talk about botox and is someone getting it and are they not getting it? >> do people understand botox, though? >> i think they're judgmental about it. look, anything in moderation, i think could be fine. for example, i'm actually 94 years old but i've had good botox and i think i look remarkably well preserved. i mean, look, i agree with rich. if you can't show facial
expression, if my kids can't tell that i'm scowling at them, there's going to be a problem. >> i think it changes the social norm. if who people are seeing on tv, everyone is botoxed then there's pressure that i'm not going to do well in the workplace unless i have botox. for a lot of money it's 300 bucks out of pocket. it's not the right thing to do. >> male/female double standard too. >> huge, huge. we got to do this again, michael. >> i like this. i'm just, you know -- >> i know. coming up in two minutes we'll hear from that ref, the internet could not get enough of him. that guy right there. please call a penalty. please call a penalty. >> he did curls before the game. >> come on back. game. >> come on back.

like i would be on a lot of, you know, bad things if i didn't get my stress release from -- >> but is exercise like walking, is that considered -- >> it could be walking vigorously and, by the way, you don't have to get all that time in in one session like you mentioned. you can get it in in various parts of the day or week but, look, i'll temper the good news with this here because in my medical opinion, just, again, mind and body, more is better. >> yeah. >> i really do believe that. i always say your body needs three things every day, it needs fuel, it needs rest, and it needs to move and that newton's law a body in rest stays in rest and a body in motion stays in motion. we want to stay in motion. >> but the hardest thing to do for a lot of people is get started. do you agree with that? it's one of the hardest things to do. do you have any suggestions? >> here's my tip. okay, number one, you have to like it, right? if you don't like it, it's never going to be sustainable. so, find something you actually like doing. if it involves any kind of movement, you're going to be
getting some benefit. and then group fitness classes, they're so hot right now for a reason. misery loves company. so you're all suffering together. it tends to go by faster. >> i tell you what, when we get done you and i will walk around the studio to get exercise. coming up -- thank you, doc. we have an exclusive with one of our favorite bachelorettes, emily maynard. we'll find out what her life is like now.

meat so, therefore, it's very important to have this animal sourced protein, beef, chicken, eggs, fish with -- in the case of cats and ideally about 70% of the protein should come from these animal sources. >> all right. >> another thing, good food is good but too much could lead to obesity, so, of course, be careful. >> just like humans so we're debunking some common myths and we're going to get our audience involved. we have lots of pet lovers in the audience. and we asked you guys to hold up some paddles for us. true or false, human food is bad for your pet. is that true or false? >> i love the fact that we have both because there is -- first of all, it's very difficult when you think of the 40 plus nutrients that go into a balanced diet, to make that at home is very tough. plus, there are certain things here i just have to show, raw onions and garlic potentially toxic, grapes and raisins, toxic, avocados too much fat and also peanut butter especially in it's sugarless peanut butter used a natural
sweetener that's called xylitol that is very dangerous so avoid xylitol. >> peanut butter -- >> a little bit if you want to use to help give a pill but sugarless peanut butter, anything with xylitol, sugarless mints or gum are dangerous for our pets. >> treats quickly. >> february is pet dental health month, so we have to be very careful. ideally the best way to control is brush pets' teeth. doesn't always happen, trust me, it doesn't. i have a lot of them. i don't even do it, so look for treats like dentastix or the greenies, things like that. cat treats, as well. iams has one for cats and their dental health. >> dental treats for our pets. these are available at the humane society of new york. and we'll be right back.
