7:02 am
large tornado has turned deadly with multiple fatalities reported and, rob, what more can you tell us this morning? >> paula, one if not several large damaging tornadoes rolling across mississippi and now into alabama. take a look at some of the video coming out of forest county where those fatalities occurred and you can see the damage done by that twister overnight. early in the morning with roofs ripped off and people trapped, rescues and searches still ongoing and one of the universities there also reporting injuries and damage too. all right, we have a tornado watch up for southern alabama and much of the florida panhandle until 11:00 central time as these strong in some cases rotating cells continue to make their way to the east and maybe resurging across parts of the mississippi later in the day, but this is the focus point for severe weather today and then tomorrow this is a two-day event and stretch it into georgia, the carolinas and northern florida and gets into the northeast on monday. more on that in a sec. >> this is not over, rob will be back for more.
7:03 am
let's get more on this tornado, though, from someone who was right there. aaron rigsby is a storm chaser. and he joins us on the phone from hattiesburg. aaron, good morning. thanks for doing this. what's the situation right now from your vantage point? >> right now things are still a little chaotic as this situation is still unfolding. the emergency services are overwhelmed right now. it looks like the hardest hit areas that i could find was just off highway 49 at south pines drive on the south side of hattiesburg where there was multiple injuries, multiple houses damaged and even vehicles thrown off of the highway right there. >> aaron, can you tell us a little bit more about the injuries? we just heard rob say multiple injuries, but there are people trapped in homes. what do you know? >> correct, yeah, when i was parked on highway 49 when the tornado crossed directly in front of me, it crossed in front of us only about 100 yards and after everything calmed down,
7:04 am
there was just a bunch of people shouting help me, help me, we need help. so, i quickly went over to that side street i was talking about earlier and there was a group of people, there was probably eight or nine people that came up to me saying that they need help, they need an ambulance, and the four people i transported to the hospital, one of them appeared to have broken ribs and was breathing fairly heavily almost like he was going into shock and then there was two other people that had reported possible back injuries, and we could do nothing for them except just wait for the ambulance to get there, and like you were saying, there was a couple of people also trapped in their homes in that area as well. >> a hectic and scary morning for you and the people in hattiesburg. aaron rigsby, thank you very much for your time this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> thanks again, aaron. we're going to be covering this story throughout the day on abc and on but we're going to move back now to the history being made in washington where america has a new president. overnight we saw donald trump occupying his new office, the oval office. we also saw him and first lady melania trump dancing at the inaugural balls. we have team coverage this morning, and we're going to
7:05 am
start with abc's chief white house correspondent jon karl. jon, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. this morning the trumps are waking up right over there in the white house for the first time, and as you can see, the lights were already on early this morning waking up after an inauguration day that was vintage trump. hours after his swearing in, donald trump made his first trip to the oval office as president. the presidential office is already partially redecorated with signature trump flourishes including gold curtains and a new rug. >> next is an executive order minimizing the economic burden of the patient protection and affordable care act pending repeal. >> reporter: sitting behind the famous resolute desk, he signed an order on obamacare. >> i, donald john trump, do solemnly swear. >> reporter: hours earlier just before noon, donald j. trump took the oath of office officially becoming the nation's 45th president. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> reporter: but in his
7:06 am
inaugural address to the nation, president trump said the day wasn't about him. >> january 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. >> reporter: as former presidents and his former rival looked on, the new president painted at times a dark vision of the country, saying once again that he'll be the one to fix it. >> mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape, this american carnage stops right here and stops right now. >> reporter: shortly after, president trump and the new first lady joined the obamas before they boarded their
7:07 am
helicopter flight out of washington. at a luncheon in the capitol trump shook hands with hillary clinton for the first time since the campaign, and he offered a few words of graciousness. >> because i was very honored, very, very honored when i heard that president bill clinton and secretary hillary clinton was coming today. >> reporter: it was a day filled with the pomp and pageantry of inaugurations past. outside the white house, i asked the new leader of the free world about the day. mr. president, how are you feeling? >> really great, thank you. >> reporter: the trumps plan to attend the national prayer service later today at washington national cathedral. and although he's already issued a few executive actions, the first full day of work, the president says, will be on monday, and right at the top of the list, paula, is getting his cabinet confirmed. the senate has only confirmed two cabinet secretaries, defense secretary mattis, homeland security secretary kelly, about 20 more to go.
7:08 am
>> he's getting ready to work. it's going to be a very busy -- you're going to be busy because we're going to check in with you a little bit later in the show, jon. >> sounds good. >> you're going to tell us what's next for the former first family. thanks, jon. and the other big story of the inauguration, the protests, many turning violent. i actually captured this video that you're going to see on my phone. our news crew witnessed some of the looting, the broken windows, the destruction of property. businesses were locking their doors. we tried to go outside and capture this, but we were ordered to stay inside. these particular protesters, they also set vehicles on fire, and matt gutman joins us from d.c. right now. and, matt, you were covering the protesters all day and we're hearing that more protests and marches are planned today. >> reporter: good morning, paula. that's right, and the biggest protest of all is set to start right here. you can see them setting the soundstage behind me. already hundreds of people out here for the women's march on washington. hundreds of thousands of others expected. but with its a-list celebrities and peaceful message, it'll be a
7:09 am
far different sight than those running street battles we saw over the past 12 hours. overnight in washington, d.c., protesters crashing one of the night's glamorous inaugural balls pushing their way into the freedom ball linking arms to try to prevent guests from coming in. once pushed back, the protesters began tossing water on partygoers. earlier blocks from the pageantry of the inaugural parade rioters smashing this limo then setting it on fire. the smoke clogging the street. rioters then vandalizing this starbucks and a mcdonald's. >> move back. >> reporter: riot police moving in. a wall of them pushing protesters back blasting them with pepper spray and stun grenades. peaceful demonstrators scrambling for cover as bursts of rapid-fire rubber bullets rang out. nearby while being interviewed by another network -- >> are you the version --
7:10 am
>> reporter: white nationalist richard spencer sucker punched by a passing protester. more than 200 arrested in the nation's capital. at the university of washington, a shooting at a protest left one hospitalized with possible life-threatening injuries. but as in washington, the majority of the protests in california, new york, chicago, missouri and other places were peaceful. [ chanting "he's our president ] >> reporter: meanwhile, trump supporters standing by the president. >> you know, when you're angry and you're yelling and screaming and you're destroying things, it takes away from your message. >> reporter: later this morning that massive women's march taking to the streets of washington, d.c. with sister marches extending across the country, over 600 of these marches in all, more than 2 million people expected to turn out. thousands in those pink beanies already in downtown washington. a plane full of women arriving in baltimore cheering after the flight attendant said this -- >> let's have a round of applause for all the nasty women
7:11 am
on board. >> reporter: local authorities say they expect up to 400,000 protesters but organizers overnight told me they expect even more than that but what they hope happens today is this launches a national movement warning against the loss of women's rights in a trump administration. paula, dan. >> matt gutman, thank you. president trump's message in his inaugural address was loud and clear, america first. "time" magazine devoting much of its latest issue to the new president with this image on the cover, and joining us now to talk about all of this, cokie roberts and kristen soltis-anderson. cokie, let me start with you. let's talk about this women's march on washington this morning. do you imagine the message of the marchers is likely to have a real impact on president trump? >> well, it's not entirely clear what the message is, and i think that's a problem. obviously there are a lot of women, hundreds of thousands of them, who want to say we're disturbed, we're angry, we're unhappy, but there's not a goal going forward.
7:12 am
i mean, if they said something like, let's elect 100 women by 2020 and then tomorrow morning wake up and go out and start working on that, that's one thing. this is a little more amorphous than that. >> and, kristen, you know, there were moments of outreach during the president's speech yesterday, but it was largely tough, uncompromising, a lot of populist undertones. do you think he should have done more to unify? >> i think it's going to take more than words to unify. i think it's going to take action. his speech sounded in many ways like a slightly more professionalized version of a campaign rally speech, very populist in tone focused on going after those elites in washington. i think he's going to have to make sure that when he in the future says he wants to be a president for all americans, that he has actions, that those who when they hear donald trump say all americans, they don't really think they count in his definition of all. they're going to need to see action from him to feel like
7:13 am
they're really a part of that. >> cokie, what about the democrats? they're locked out of power largely in washington right now. what -- is there any way that they can find to work constructively with this new president? >> well, i don't think they want to work constructively with the president, and yesterday the symbolism of a boycott by many democratic members of congress really underlines that. the republicans through the obama administration acted like a traditional party in opposition, and i think the democrats are likely to act the same way with president trump. the problem with that, of course, is that it means nothing gets done and that frustration about washington and the washington elites, quote/unquote, remains and that then becomes trump's problem. >> cokie and kristen, thank you very much for your analysis on this historic morning. the inauguration is a time for americans to take stock, to look forward and also to debate our values, but it is also, let's not forget, a party complete with galas and gowns and abc's mary bruce has more on
7:14 am
that. [ playing "hail to the chief" ] >> reporter: president trump and first lady melania hitting the party circuit in their new new hometown, showstopping at three inaugural balls. >> we knew we were going to win and we won. >> reporter: after brief remarks from the president, it was time for that much anticipated moment. >> so now it's a tremendous honor to have the first dance with melania. >> reporter: for the president who rose to power doing things his way, a fitting first song. trump singing along to frank sinatra's "my way." ♪ i did it my way >> reporter: the trump family, vice president mike pence and wife karen pence joining them on stage. the balls filled with entertainment from the rockettes to the lord of the dance and the piano guys performing a familiar fight song. ♪ the anthem of hillary clinton's campaign. at the final ball of the night,
7:15 am
melania trump making her first remarks as first lady. >> i'm honored to be our first lady. >> reporter: capping off the historic evening, the president and first lady each dancing with members of the military. now as for that little political oops with the clinton campaign song, the band says it had nothing to do with politics but the artist rachel platten tweeted that while she respects the office of the president, they did not have her permission and she did not endorse their decision to play her song. dan and paula. >> thank you, mary. appreciate that. i know we're going to be talking fashion later, but quickly, what did you think of the dress, melania's dress? >> i think melania just knocked it out -- i think all of the ladies in the trump family knocked it out of the park all day. i know that was really the analysis that you were going for dan. that was the first order of business. we're going to be talking about the fashion a little later in the show. >> yeah, yeah, i was digging -- >> melissa rivers. >> -- barron trump's skinny tie. >> i thought he rocked it well. >> how about barron trump, 10 years old, the way he handled himself. >> absolutely, to be in the sight of the global attention
7:16 am
all day long. he handled it really well. >> just like you would have done as a 10-year-old or i would have done as a 10-year-old. >> no, absolutely not. >> let's turn back to the weather, though, because, as we said at the top of the show, there's some breaking news. rob tracking that severe weather moving through the south. hey, rob, good morning. >> hey, good morning again, guys. circumstan circling back, the threat is up until noon eastern time for the florida panhandle and the southern parts of alabama but this line will progress off to the east, not just today but tomorrow as well and by noon or 2:00 p.m. afternoon, birmingham to atlanta as the bulk of this front purrs across the southeast so a two-day event then it rolls into the carolinas and kind of develops into a coastal low. look for heavy rain and wind across the cape and the delmarva there and looking for winds that could exceed 50 or 60 miles an hour during the day tomorrow and monday and then monday night and this includes the jersey shore, long island, eastern parts of new england, as well, so coastal flooding, big waves and maybe some power outages too and

7:18 am
of rain and wind there, significant storms and we'll talk more about that in ten minutes because i know you care. >> i do. >> speaking of ron, let's hand the baton to you. >> thank you. live thank you very much. good morning. that's not a baton. it's a pen but good morning to you, paula and dan, diane, good morning and robert, good morning to you. good morning, everyone. we're going to begin with a school shooting near columbus, ohio, that left one student critically wounded but police say it could have been much worse. the 17-year-old student is accused of opening fire in the hallway of west liberty high school. this was early friday morning in what police say appears to have been a random shooting. staff members rushed in and pinned the suspect down till police arrived. this morning those staff members being hailed as heroes. and lawyers for army sergeant bowe bergdahl have filed a new motion to dismiss the army's desertion case against him. they're saying that donald trump's harsh words about bergdahl on the campaign trail prevent him from getting a fair trial. trump called bergdahl, quote, a dirty, rotten traitor. bergdahl had been hoping for a presidential pardon before president obama left office. that was not granted. and in orlando, florida, the

acra gold dress on thursday night, you know, so covered up but still unbelievably sexy. and then last night just hitting it out of the park in that beautiful cream gown with the red detailing. and in between, i mean for me, that blue ralph lauren was everything. >> it felt like she was channeling jackie o. right there. >> you know, and a lot of people are saying that, and, yes, she was, but you're talking about two young women when they sort of received the mantle of first lady who went for classic modern looks. so i don't even think it's necessarily a nod to jackie o., but it's a beautiful update on classic, yet totally modern. >> all right. i want to talk about kellyanne conway in just a moment, but real quick, how did ivanka do? >> oh, ivanka did great. she toggled between oscar de la renta and carolina herrera for the whole week. she wore the beautiful carolina herrera gown last night but so many are talking about again the modern take on the pants suit by

"good morning america" is brought to you by pfizer. time for "pop news." diane is here. what's going on? >> i have an inaugurational edition of "pop news" for you this morning starting with the big question, what is in the box? that is what everyone wants to know this morning after melania trump gave a gift to michelle obama in a tiffany box before the ceremonies yesterday. the whole thing led to a bit of an awkward moment as ms. obama seemed unsure what to do with the box. >> give it to the marine. >> mr. obama finally took it from her and then handed it off to a white house staffer. but that, of course, means we never got to see what was inside. so many on the internet are now guessing. some say it's a perfect shape for a tiffany picture frame. my favorite suggestion it's a boxed set of "the apprentice." any -- >> they'll have plenty of time
7:54 am
to watch it now. >> it wasn't his inauguration day, but president george w. bush actually stole the show at one point, so as president trump started giving remarks, a light rain started to fall so like many others in the audience, mr. bush reached for his plastic poncho, but as you can tell, things didn't go quite as planned. he just could not get the darned thing to cooperate but as usual he had no trouble finding humor in the whole situation. he was a very good sport and laughed it off. up next, malia obama is going from the white house to hollywood. the former first daughter landed a big-time internship working for producer harvey weinstein. the 18-year-old is set to attend harvard university in the fall after taking a gap year but she seems to have an affinity for show business. she's already interned for hbo's "girls" and worked as a production assistant on the now canceled drama "extant." so, i'm thinking maybe malia obama's star on hollywood boulevard. >> how is she getting these plum jobs? does she have a connection? >> she might have a connect. >> she has a few connections. >> a little bit. >> you know who my dad is and my mom.
7:55 am
>> she took a gap year. i too a gap year but i was still in school so -- >> you weren't interning for harvey weinstein? >> rob had a robust minor in keg stands. >> isn't that called flunking? >> no, build your shoulders. >> build your shoulders. >> and finally inauguration day also brought us a sneak peek at tv's commander in chief. "house of cards" released an ominous teaser for the show's may 30th season five premiere. take a look. >> all: one nation, under god, indivisible. >> oh. >> all: with liberty and justice for all. >> ooh. >> kind of spooky. kind of eerie. children reciting "the pledge of allegiance" to an upside down american flag, and you might remember series four ended with kevin spacey's character frank underwood promising not to submit to terror but to make the terror so now people are wondering did he deliver on that promise and is that what we're seeing. >> we had a discussion a couple minutes ago about where things were left. >> it was a very dark final episode. >> yeah. >> i love that show.
7:56 am
>> you need to get a proper recap before watching season -- >> i'm going to clear out the end of may to sit on my couch for an extended period of time. see you back here tomorrow morning, thanks for watching, everybody. skiers and snowboarders enjoying fresh powder in the mountains this weekend. they've seen more than four feet of snow in the last four days. the sierra is expecting at least two more feet during this weekend's storm. chains are required on interstate 80 from gold run and
