we do say good morning, america. i hope everybody had a fantastic weekend. you know what, the artists are fans themselves. did you see celine dion dancing to cher backstage? >> i love that moment. >> what a great show. cher was amazing. >> she was terrific. big day for president trump. he has just arrived in israel. as you can imagine there is massive security there. this is the first time a president's ever gone to israel in his first foreign trip. >> as you know when you go on these trips there are a lot of rules in these big events. even world leaders seem to have a little confusion about where to stand. take a look at what the cameras caught this morning. >> they have all this protocol. we never know what it is. >> what is the protocol? >> who knows. >> had the same issue with obama. at the inaugural. he has a packed schedule including a meeting with israel's president reuven rivlin and of course, a meeting with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. >> later he heads to europe where he will meet with the pope
and other world leaders. jon karl is in jerusalem and has the latest details. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. president trump made history the moment his plane touched down here in israel. it is the very first time that air force one has gone directly to israel from saudi arabia, a country that is both the birthplace of islam, and one that has absolutely no relations whatsoever with israel and no direct flights. the president arrived in israel in pursuit of what he calls the ultimate deal. middle east peace. >> i have come to this sacred and ancient land to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the united states and the state of israel. >> reporter: no american president has visited israel so early in his presidency. but president trump started his trip in saudi arabia. the heart of the islamic world.
there in the birthplace of islam, an image that not long ago would have been impossible to imagine. donald trump offering a message of unity to the world's muslim leaders. >> terrorists do not worship god. they worship death. this is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilizations. this is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people all in the name of religion. >> reporter: in the audience the leaders of more than 50 different muslim nations. >> i stand before you as a representative of the american people to deliver a message of friendship and hope and love. that is why i chose to make my first foreign visit a trip to
the heart of the muslim world. >> reporter: the president's words and his tone dramatically different from the campaign when he proposed banning all muslims from entering the u.s. and portrayed islam as the enemy. >> i think islam hates us. there's something -- there's something there that is a tremendous hatred there. >> reporter: this time, talk of partnership and cooperation in the war on terror, but he did challenge these leaders to take the lead in defeating the terrorists in their midst. >> a better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists. drive them out. drive them out. >> reporter: and before he left saudi arabia, there was this incredible image, the president and the king hands on a glowing orb. what were they doing? opening up a new center in saudi
arabia to counter extremists online. the president will be meeting here with israeli prime minister bibi netanyahu, and palestinian leader, mahmoud abbas. these will be separate meetings for the talk of a peace deal by president trump, the two sides at this point aren't even talking to each other about it yet. george. >> okay, jon. thanks very much. let's bring in our chief global affairs correspondent, martha raddatz, to talk more about this right now as jon said. we know the meeting with the israeli prime minister will be today and he's got a good relationship with bibi netanyahu. but it's trickier now because of the revelation that the president shared highly classified israeli intelligence with the russians. >> you know, you may see these magnificent ceremonies and unshakable bond in public but there is a whole lot going on in israeli intelligence community behind the scenes. it's hard to imagine that the president and prime minister netanyahu will spend any time talking about it. it will be done in the intelligence communities,
security communities but make no mistake. this was a major issue and infuriated israeli intelligence. you're talking about putting the lives of spies at risk and israel will think twice about sharing that kind of intelligence, george. >> the president there with the israeli president reuven rivlin right now, and martha, the president is personally getting invested in this whole issue of middle east peace trying to drive a peace deal between the two. many of his predecessors have tried and failed. >> reporter: it's one of the most complicated issues on the planet. i watched this process for decades and just when you think you have made progress, it comes to a screeching halt. it's always good to be optimistic, but analysts i have spoken to don't see anything that president trump's team has done that gives them any great hope. there will be middle east peace, in fact, i think they are less optimistic that it will happen under this administration, george. >> the president will try to prove them wrong. martha raddatz, thanks very much. now to the latest on the
russia investigation. new questions this morning about president trump's meeting with russian officials and what he said about former fbi director james comey. our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas has more and joins us with those details. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: robin, good morning. allegations of name-calling from president trump only likely to fuel the war of words with the former fbi director who is set to testify before congress in the coming weeks. even as the president travels overseas, questions about russia and the firing of the fbi director remain front and center. >> these questions need to be answered. >> reporter: new reports say federal investigators are looking into whether there were ties between the trump campaign and russia are interested in a white house staffer. the staffer has not been identified, and it's unclear what the investigators want. >> i don't know where this is going to go. again, we have got to step back and let the investigators and the fbi and the others do their job. >> reporter: newly appointed special counsel bob mueller is gearing up for an investigation and many who know him say it will be broad and aggressive.
this as fired fbi director james comey preparing to testify before the senate intelligence committee. "the new york times" reporting president trump allegedly called him a nut job in the oval office during that meeting with top russian officials. reportedly adding that firing comey took great pressure off him. >> is that what the president said? >> well, i don't remember exactly what the president said, the gist of the conversation was that the president feels as if he's hamstrung. >> reporter: the investigation into russia is not going anywhere, and with the testimony of comey on the horizon, more dramatic moments surely to come, george. >> okay, pierre, thanks very much. as those continue on capitol hill this week congress is going to get its first look at president trump's full budget and he promises to balance the budget in ten years with big cuts in medicaid and mary bruce has the details. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning. we're getting a new glimpse at the president's spending priorities and one of his top targets entitlements. his budget which will be released tomorrow will slash the
safety nets by $1.7 trillion including massive cuts to medicaid, food stamps and other anti-poverty programs. now, as the president promised on the campaign trail he is not touching social security or medicare. now the president has also called for a big boost in military spending. $54 billion coupled with cuts to foreign aid and other domestic programs, but already the president's plan is being met with a bit of a cold shoulder by members of both parties, but as always the president's budget just a jumping off point for negotiations up on capitol hill. >> just the beginning, thanks very much. let's talk about it more with our chief political analyst, matthew dowd, and you look at the description that mary just gave. this is the president doubling down on what we saw on the house plan to repeal and replace obamacare and that's not popular. >> well, no, and i think this plan is based on a couple of premises i think assumptions won't go right. one is on the house plan passing in the senate which looks like it met a buzz saw and the other thing is these series of tax
cuts that are baked into in that will somehow grow the economy and that will fix the budget. i think the problem donald trump has in order to do something this dramatic and draconian in many ways requires a lot of political capital and he doesn't have a full gas tank. he doesn't even have half a gas tank. he has a third of a gas tank so tough to get it through. >> he does appear to be getting a break from the controversies at home on this first trip overseas. >> yeah, i think his first trip so far, i mean, one of the lessons you would think he would learn is giving set speeches on a teleprompter usually gets you applause, and usually gets you people so, so far, no errors. i don't know how many runs are scored. when you look at these foreign trips i recall a lot of presidential foreign trips that didn't do anything within the country. richard nixon made a dramatic trip in 1974, and didn't change the public view and bill clinton made a middle eastern trip ten days before election day and was applauded and came back and dramatically lost elections. >> got wiped out. >> got wiped out. >> thanks very much. we move from politics to the tragedy at the university of maryland.
the fbi is now investigating a 22-year-old student for a possible hate crime after he allegedly stabbed another young student. abc's adrienne bankert is on the scene for us there in college park, maryland. good morning, adrienne. >> reporter: good morning to you, too, robin. the violence happening right behind us here at this bus stop on the edge of campus. there are a couple of candles still burning in memory of robert collins iii. while many in the college community are still grieving, investigators say they might be closer to a motive. a student behind bars this morning for a stabbing, and now the fbi is investigating whether 22-year-old university of maryland student sean christopher urbanski committed a hate crime. identified by witnesses and taken into custody sunday, urbanski is charged with the first degree murder of richard collins iii, a bowie university state senior. >> we came upon information within the last 12 hours that concerns us quite a bit with
regard to motive. >> reporter: investigators suspect the brutal killing was motivated by prejudice after police found urbanski belongs to facebook group alt-reich: nation. >> it shows extreme bias against women, latinos, members of the jewish faith and especially, african-americans. >> reporter: at around 3:00 a.m. saturday, responding university officers discovered collins on a sidewalk suffering from serious injuries. collins' two friends say they were waiting for an uber at this bus stop at the edge of campus when urbanski approached and stabbed collins in his chest. he was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. now, witnesses including collins' friends say there were reports that urbanski could be heard screaming at collins saying step left if you know what's good for you and when collins looked at him puzzled and said no, that's when reportedly, urbanski stabbed him in the chest but still waiting for more details about their interaction leading up to that attack.
we know there are unconfirmed reports there could be a bond hearing scheduled today. robin. >> so tragic. thank you so much. >> sickening story right there. the latest on bill cosby's sexual assault trial. he's been accused by 60 women. this case centers on one, and jury selection set so start this morning in pittsburgh. abc's linsey davis is outside the courthouse with the story. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, george. here we are 300 miles away from montgomery county where the actual trial will take place. that's because cosby's attorneys were successful at arguing the point that residents there are too tainted. but the question now is can you find an unbiased jury anywhere in this country capable of determining the fate of bill cosby? the famed comedian is being tried on charges that he drugged and sexually assaulted former temple university employee andrea constand in his bah home in 2004. constand is 1 of more than 50 women that came forward, accusing the 79-year-old one time known as america's favorite
dad, of assault or harassment. the jurors will be sequestered during the two-week trial. cosby is not expected to take the witness stand. in addition to constand, the judge says he will allow testimony from one other accuser. now, cosby has all along maintained his innocence. if he is found to be guilty, he faces up to ten years in prison, george. >> linsey davis, thanks very much. amy here with today's other top stories starting with a sad one from mt. everest. >> an american doctor is among four climbers who died trying to scale the mountain. dr. roland yearwood was trying to climb the tallest peaks. on all seven continents. this was his second attempt to climb everest. he escaped an avalanche triggered by an earthquake the first time. well, overnight, north korea claimed it's ready to mass produce the missile it tested on sunday. it's harder to detect than those using liquid fuel, and south korea says it throws cold water
on peace efforts. vice president mike pence faced protesters as he gave the commencement address at notre dame. before the speech, dozens of students walked out before the speech and he spoke about the suppression of free speech on college campuses. and some good news about the michigan firefighter seen in this dramatic video as part of a gas station collapsed all around him. look at that. he was trapped for two minutes until he was rescued. he has now been released from the hospital after being treated for burns. incredible. a management shake-up at ford. the automaker replacing its ceo hoping to boost its stock price days after announcing layoffs. jim hackett who has led ford's efforts for self-driving cars is now expected to take over. and finally, a big stunner in the nba playoffs. >> woo! >> woo, says robin. the celtics hit a last-second three-pointer to beat the cavaliers. there it goes. 111-108. they were trailing by 21 points
in the third quarter but managed to hold lebron james scoreless in the fourth quarter. their rally especially remarkable considering they were blown out by a record 44 points on friday and they played without their star as we heard about on friday, isaiah thomas. woo. game four is tomorrow. >> cavs' first loss of the postseason. series on. >> series on. it's going to be a good one. still a long way before it's over. we'll see. we're going to go now to that big good-bye to the big top. after 146 years, ringling brothers and barnum & bailey circus packed up its tents and trapeze forever this past weekend, and the producers of the event known as the greatest show on earth say low ticket sales and pressure from animal rights groups made them force to close and the show's emotional final moments ringmaster jonathan lee iverson closed this goodbye to the audience. >> keep the circus alive inside you, and thank you very much! >> the circus had 500, you know, staff and personnel.
100 animals and the elephants were retired to its sanctuary in florida not long ago. >> to keep it alive in all of us. >> absolutely. okay. we have been watching these pictures. ginger is on assignment. a special assignment, a scary one in the bahamas. ginger, ginger. >> oh, i don't know if this is scary. i'm having breakfast with my newest friends. you see the reef sharks swarming there. we are two miles off the southwest coast of new providence island. the one with nassau on it and we'll tell you a lot more about why i am going in with them in just moments but first let's get some of that weather. laredo, texas, a wild weekend up to 70-mile-per-hour winds, flash flooding across the gulf coast, even 8 inches of rain. seeing some of the really heavy rain in birmingham. water rescues there. more to come, you guys of all that this week. select cities now brought to you by liberty mutual insurance.

interested in me before and now outside the gate and ready to go but once we settled and got to connect, there was a powerful moment. my now 16-year-old daughter called me and she was in tears. and she was upset, and i said, mary, it's going to be okay. you know, don't worry. and she said, no, why were you laughing at things that he was saying on that bus? why were you playing along, dad? it wasn't funny. i said, mary, i am sorry, and there is no good answer for that. >> wow. had to be the hardest part. >> it's one thing for total strangers or someone on twitter or social media but for your teenage daughter to say why? >> he has three daughters. right? >> he has three daughters, right. that was the middle daughter. and it was truly remorseful -- you know, truly -- makes no, no excuses whatsoever, explains
that moment, again, that was 11 years ago when the tape surfaced and he really was very open about discussing anything and everything and where he is now. >> look forward to seeing the full story tomorrow. >> see if he has talked with donald trump since the release of the tape so the full interview tomorrow here on "gma." right now we'll move on to president trump's first trip overseas. first lady and ivanka trump taking the stage as they travel across the middle east. our senior white house correspondent, cecilia vega, is traveling with the first family in jerusalem. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. two days in saudi arabia and president trump never once publicly mentioned the issue of human rights. his aides say he pressed leaders privately behind the scenes. speaking to that room packed with muslim leaders, president trump made his message clear. >> we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be or how to worship. >> reporter: it was melania
trump who sent a different kind of message, stepping off air force one without a head scarf. in this religiously conservative country where it can be seen as a sign of disrespect, the saudis welcomed her with open arms, a far cry from first lady michelle obama whose bare head sparked controversy in 2015. among her critics at the time, donald trump who tweeted, we have enough enemies. both the first lady and first daughter met with local women during their trip. ivanka trump telling a group of leaders their country's progress is encouraging but there's still a lot of work to be done. at an all women business center melania trump was asked about work/life balance. her response, you need to balance and find the time. but outside in the capital of riyadh we saw the harsh reality. day, as a woman in saudi arabia i wouldn't be allowed to go into this door at a mcdonald's. i would have to go through this side that says family section. completely segregated. there is a wall that keeps the women separate from the men. and night.
one of the basic rights that women don't have, they're not legally allowed to drive. most rely on a driver or even uber. even if president trump didn't publicly address the plight of women in saudi arabia, it was part of his visit anyway. country star toby keith held a free concert. american flags lined the stage but in the audience men only. women not allowed. and this photo of a sea of men at a technology event the president attended sparked controversy online. a saudi official fired back with a photo of his own saying the center does have women here on the second floor. yeah, women on the second floor there in that building. so, again, the president and his senior advisers tell us that the strategy for him was to press these issues very directly behind the scenes, george. they say his approach is to raise these issues quietly and to expect results. >> okay, cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk now to anita mcbride
who served as chief of staff to first lady laura bush, thanks for joining us this morning. you prepared for trips like this in the past but this one really unique, a high high-profile role for the first lady and first daughter. >> yes, and isn't the president lucky to have them as added surrogates and advocates for him on this trip? it is an important trip and to start in saudi arabia, we know, of course, it's the most gender segregated country in the world but they are making reforms and they're doing it on their own timetable and i remember king abdullah saying that to mrs. bush in a private meeting that he had with her, this has to be done according to their norms and culture. and the diversification of their economy moving away from oil has allowed women to enter the workplace and to contribute to their economy and that helps to give them a seat at the table incrementally and i think that's one thing the first lady and both ivanka trump alluded to in
their visits yesterday. >> right, they did speak out about women's empowerment but some critics say they didn't go far enough. >> you know what, i think there was one point cecilia said in her piece. the president was not there to lecture, and americans really shouldn't be there to lecture, but to push the point on human rights and women's rights. if it's done quietly, that is appropriate, george. again, it takes time for these changes to happen and they are and you heard the president of the world bank mention yesterday too that even this women's economic empowerment fund is taking off even a lot faster than he predicted and that is something that will help and contribute to women in saudi arabia. >> we did see the president trump criticize first lady michelle obama for not wearing a head scarf. >> right. he shouldn't have done that. he shouldn't have done that, again, he was not steeped in the issues of protocol. he is not a politician and not a diplomat and he's learning and clearly, this is a great example
of that, and robin knows because she traveled with us in 2007 with mrs. bush. none of us wore head scarfs and we were talking about issues that were very edgy at the time, breast cancer, no saudi woman or man mentioned that word in public so, again, these steps are moving slowly. >> i remember being at the hotel with mrs. bush and i went to work out and i didn't know that there was a workout for the women. i went to the big gym. >> uh-oh. they came and got me and said, no, you have to go to another one and part of me wanted to speak out and part of me was i'm there with mrs. bush. i know what you're talking about but i did as myself go and talk to people but i could not do as much as i wanted to. because of circumstances. >> right. as a western women we get back up on that but, again, i think even in the time since we were there, robin, the steps are coming slowly. women are able to vote in local elections. king abdullah who you had met
with us and mrs. bush really was committed to reforms but a timetable of their choosing, not ours. >> i remember that. >> anita mcbride, thanks very much. coming up in two minutes, a terrifying moment caught on camera. a sea lion grabbing a young girl pulling her into the water. she is okay. we'll tell you what happened next. next. . for millions of baby boomers there's a serious virus out there that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it.
because it can hide in your body for years without symptoms, and it's not tested for in routine blood work. the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested. if you have hep c, it can be cured. for us it's time to get tested. ask your healthcare provider for the simple blood test. it's the only way to know for sure. i'm not a customer, but i'm calling about that credit scorecard. give it. sure! it's free for everyone. oh! well that's nice! and checking your score won't hurt your credit. oh! i'm so proud of you. well thank you. free at at discover.com/creditscorecard, even if you're not a customer. euven andwe're now with that in

we are back now with that important health alert for parents. before you reach for the juice this morning the american academy of pediatrics is out with new recommendations on how much they should drink and babies shouldn't have it at all and our senior medical contributor, dr. jennifer ashton, is here. a nutritionist as well. what's behind this? >> any time you see doctors weighing in on diet, food, nutrition, it's usually because there is a pretty conclusive association between a food or beverage and a health or disease outcome. that's what we see going on right now. we have the country's top pediatricians weighing in on fruit juice for babies, kids and teens, and while some 100% fruit juice can be okay, in general it doesn't pack the nutritional punch that a lot of parents think it does. >> tell us more why they're making these recommendations. >> first of all, from a nutritional standpoint, too much
fruit juice in kids has been associated with poor nutrition, and increased risk of tooth decay. we know that it's not good for the teeth. that dentists know about that and increased risk of g.i. juices and unpasteurized juices can contain harmful bacteria and potential for drug/juice interactions. we heard with grapefruit juice. kids who take medication need to keep that in mind. >> should not rely solely on the juice? >> if you put the fruit juice version head-to-head with the whole fruit version as we have here, if you look at just eight ounces of apple juice you see about 114 calories, 24 grams of sugar which is a lot and zero dietary fiber. when you compare that the apple the big difference is in the fiber. you're getting four grams of fiber in the whole fruit and that is really important for g.i. issues so you always want to reach for the whole fruit versus the juice. >> how much juice is okay? >> if you take a look at this
chart, this is pretty important. babies to 1 year of age really none unless recommended by a pediatrician which sometimes does happen. when you're talking about toddlers 1 to 3 years of age, 4 ounces a day. no more. four to 6-year-old, easy to remember, 4 to 6 ounces and 7 to 18, 8 ounces per day, no more. this is really important. you want to go for the whole fruit version. >> i can sense them putting down the juice at home. >> step away from the juice. >> thank you very much. >> michael. all right, thank you, robin. coming up, we have new details just coming out this morning on pippa middleton's wedding. and, of course, we are live from atlantis in the bahamas where ginger is swimming with the sharks. and i have it right here. you can go to our facebook page and see every angle just by swiping around. look at that. i'm going up, down. sharks. there we go. look up at that.

40 plus years of working with sharks. he's going to feed the sharks in the right way, only feeding them grouper and what is natural to their diet so you'll get to see them feed. you'll get to see their gills move and, of course, you'll get to see us right here on our virtual reality camera if you go to "good morning america's" facebook page. some of these sharks have names, the joker shark i see coming right now and they actually look you in the eye. they are so almost friendly. is that strange for me to say they're friendly? >> no, it's great. >> yeah and liz is going to actually do something for us here. this is fascinating. she's going to go ahead and try to do something that's very difficult but it's immobility and a natural thing that happens to sharks to other fish and different parts of the sea. what she's going to do here is try to tickle kind of the snout of a shark and it will put it in a temporary hypnosis. that temporary hypnosis could help researchers to explain a little bit more about what's going on within the shark it's a
very difficult thing to do. we thought, why not try it live? you know, maybe we get it because i can then touch the shark without any incident. she obviously has chainmeal on her arms and stuart has it on his hands. but the swarm is getting very excited. she's trying right now. tonic immobility is very difficult, but, guys, it is so fascinating down here and it's actually at this point mating season so a lot of these sharks are pregnant and i asked before i came down, i hope that a lot of these sharks are not as cranky as i was when -- there she goes is there she's got a hold of one right there. [ applause ] >> look at his eyes look like they're rolling back in his head. >> walk us through all the safety measures you took, ginger. >> erc o. the safety measures are immense. you have to have your flippers, you have to be covered head to toe and then on top of it you obviously have to have your dive
certification and these guys have so many years with shark, they know how they work. they know what they're looking for and what they won't react to. they also have a very, you know, they've done research with teams from different universities and here she's got one, guys, oh, he got away. she got away. most of these are also female sharks. here in the bahamas they have a high population of female sharks which are typically a little less aggressive and bigger than males. >> and, ginger, can liz hear us as well? >> liz, can hear you as well. >> hey, liz, i have a question. how important for everybody out there is shark conservation to our ecosystem? i know there's been a loss in population of sharks. >> shark conservation is super important to the ecology of the underwater marine life anywhere in the world, the bahamas the government made the bahamas one
of the world's largest shark sanctuaries so sharks are protected throughout the country. there is no buying or selling of any shark products, the apex predator in the ocean and super important to keep this natural circle of life going so that it balances out the ecosystem. >> they get so close to us, michael, i can't even tell you. >> yeah. hey, keep those hands tucked in, ginger. >> ginger. >> they're in. >> half a million people are watching right now. over 500,000 on our facebook page. can you describe to them, they feel like they're there with you just describe to them what it's like to be where you are right now. >> the only thing you aren't feeling is when the shark actually looks you right in the eye and then touches you. i have been right now grazed by right now there's a tail hitting me because i believe liz has this shark in tonic immobility. guys, we did it. it's happening right now so i'll
touch the shark's tail if that's okay, liz. >> if you did that to me i think i would do the same thing. >> it works on my dog. >> so beautiful. oh, my goodness. oh, look at that. >> this is what you can't feel in virtual reality. >> so what's happened to the shark there? what happened actually? >> taking a nap. >> it happened right here and i'm telling you, i have his fin in my hand, guys. it's so soft and gorgeous and like so strong. you can feel the strength because every single part of a shark is working and you can feel the muscle and the cartilage and all of their body is cartilage except for their jaw and teeth so that they can whip around in the ocean so quickly. wow, this is amazing. oh. >> ginger. >> tell me when i shouldn't do this anymore, liz. >> ginger, how long will that shark stay in a catatonic state? >> it can stay in tonic immobility for 15 minutes.
that's the average. oh, there he goes. there she goes. >> up to 15 minutes so we got it. i'm not supposed to put my land out. >> all right. way to listen up, ginger, linger, liz, thank you both very much. what an experience. we're not done yet. we've got more with ginger just ahead and jesse palmer, he's not too far away. he's at atlantis resort in the bahamas this morning and having the time of his life. look at this guy. but he's also with the dolphins and
[ applause ] just saying this is so cute. i love that. >> thank you. >> international sensation priyanka chopra, she is the star of abc's hit show, we love her, "quantico" and hugely popular, both here and back in india and now she's making her hollywood big screen debut. i watched it last night, "baywatch." she plays a villain. she makes like it difficult for dwayne "the rock" johnson and his team of lifeguards. >> how many girls can say that? >> all of you, we're having an open house, meet the neighbors thing and, look, i know that the club is kind of fancy and probably not your scene, but you have a standing invitation. >> thank you. keep that in mind. >> whoop. >> whoa. easy.
you okay? >> yeah. i'll see you there. >> see you then. >> just so happens, ah. >> oh. oh. >> oh, okay. >> and he fell for it too. >> exactly. so this is your first hollywood film. >> yes. >> it must have been exciting for you. you've been in 50 films. >> "baywatch" happens to be my 51st film. but it is my first american movie and i'm very excited about it because, you know, after playing alex who is such a positive character in "quantico" i think to go completely in the other direction was a lot of fun. >> you do -- she does go completely in the other direction. it's delicious and had you watched "baywatch" as a child? >> i was 6 or 7 or something like that. >> okay, so -- thank you. >> but, yes, the answer to the question is yes and i used to love the show. it was one of my mom's favorite shows and when the music starts in the beginning, the da, da, da, da, dish. that sound and i remember that
used to be like our cue to jump to the couch and be like, oh, my god, it's starting. i believe that's what america looked like for the longest time. >> they were all back lit and running in slow motion. >> nobody had jobs. everybody would hang out at the beach, everyone is blond and in great shape and i landed in new york city at 12. not so much. >> not here in new york. we're proud. we're proud of new york and not hike that but we're proud. >> i'm glad people have jobs and everyone is not blond, you know. >> did you have so much fun playing the villain, though, because that's a little different for you. usually you play the good guy. >> i played a negative character in my indian films sometimes but i think what was cool here was victoria, my character was written for a guy initially. it was called victor leeds. victoria is so much better. >> oh, yes, yes. >> if i may say so. [ applause ] so that was cool to, you know, be offered a part which was
initially written of and thought of for a guy and secondly she's such a proud feminist and strong character that, you know, like i mean -- one of my favorite scenes she's talking to one of her henchman and her heel is inside his foot the whole time and she's like, you listen to me and it was things like that which was so absurd that there were so much fun. >> another role that is always played by men, james bond. i can see you because, you know -- [ applause ] come on, now. in the movie you have a line about you're not a bond villain yet. enough about the bond villain. play james bond. >> i said that in a few interviews before but why not? i hope in my lifetime whether i play it or not someone like there's a female james bond, it would be so cool to see women take on iconic characters in entertain many. i would love that to happen. >> that would be great. we love you here at abc. thank you, "quantico" third season. >> third season. [ applause ]
>> when you first came on you were a little nervous if the show would take off. you have to be excited. >> i love playing alex and being back for a third season will be great. >> thank you, priyanka chopra, please. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> thank you. >> and she does sort of have a dance scene because you foe for -- does sort of have a dance scene. you got -- "baywatch" hits theaters may 25th. >> ginger. do you see what she's been doing? >> she's my new hero. >> she could play james bond. >> priyanka, so glad i get to say hi to you, priyanka. under the sea. here we are. we're actually at our safety stop so kind of on our way back up with all the fish and wildlife below us. that "ray of hope" was hit by hurricane matthew as was most of the bahamas, the first time a
major hurricane hit the bahamas, nassau and new providence island, since 1929. that's right. i was going to get some weather info here from even under the water. for now i'm going to start heading up and have to get a check a little closer to home.>. i'm abc 7 news meteorologist mike nicco. another hot day away from the coast and a spare the air day, poor air quality possible. my >> i'm not the only one here in the bahamas. jesse palmer is at the atlantis resort and he is rocking out with the junkanoo band, right, jess. >> "gma" must love us. they sent us to the bahamas. i'm just feeding dolphins. another typical monday. having such a great time in the bahamas. there's really no place like atlantis. even before you go into the crystal clear water, there's so much beauty, so much culture here.
then once you get underwater it's a totally different world full of so majestic creatures like rescue dolphins you see right here you can find at dolphin key and have an amazing story. you have to check it out. it's a beautiful sight. a dolphin and her healthy calf. but this mother and son are nothing short of a miracle. back in august of 2005 hurricane katrina devastated this aquarium. the dolphins violently washed out to sea. >> the giant dolphin rescue under way. >> reporter: unable to survive in the wild they kept returning to their broken pen looking for food. >> some of the animals were out for three weeks. they had lost amount of weight. the whole industry came together to assist in rescuing these animals and atlantis stepped in. >> reporter: the group was separated placed in temporary sanctuaries around the country until they were transported to the bahamas on a specially outfitted charter flight. beside them the trainers and veterinarians they knew making them feel safe.
and keeping them alive. >> we were able to reunite all the trainer dolphins and now one big happy family. >> reporter: one year later that miracle baby we told you about was born and a new generation became the legacy of the katrina rescue dolphins. today, the dolphins are thriving including 3-year-old dolphin kalik named after a local beer. he is the first of a third generation of katrina dolphins, 1 of 43 residing peacefully a dolphin key. you know, it's really amazing, all of the work that atlantis is doing to help rescue these dolphins. we're talking about seven connected pools. there's over 6 million gallons of bahamian seawater. think about it. more than ten times required by u.s. regulations. i want to thank ryan for helping me out. >> not a problem. >> you got my dream job. i might be missing my flight back to new york city. let's go back to you. >> you know what i love ginger is swimming with the sharks and big bad football player is hanging out with the dolphins, come on, man.
