7:01 am
the terrifying moment this woman takes a devastating fall right through a door in the sidewalk. she didn't even see it coming on her phone tumbling eight feet below. abc news exclusive, chelsea manning speaks out. the transgender soldier convicted for the largest leak of classified information in u.s. history one-on-one for her first tv interview since a release from military prison. >> i've accepted responsibility. anything i've done it's on me. >> why she did it and her life now. >> thank you. for giving me a chance. that's all i wanted. >> first on "gma" this morning. good morning, america. hope you're well this friday morning. what a dramatic transformation for chelsea manning. >> absolutely. you know, today is a big day. we've also got our biggest concert of the summer yet. take a live look at central
7:02 am
park. more than 2,000 people, they're already there and more are on the way for our sold out show with the chainsmokers and, george, i see you wearing your dancing shoes today. >> george is just laughing and saying nothing. we have a lot of news to get to. we'll have those stunning election results from great britain in a moment. here at home of course the president just fired back at james comey for the first time. sent out a tweet saying despite so many false statements and lie, total and complete vindication and, wow, comey is a leaker. there are a lot of questions right now after the fired fbi director's bombshell testimony. did the president pressure him to end the investigation. was it obstruction of justice? are there in fact tapes of the conversation trump had with comey, and is a special counsel now investigating president trump. let's start with our chief white house correspondent jon karl. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. comey's dramatic testimony has set up a new line of attack from
7:03 am
the white house, a battle between the president and the former fbi director over who is telling the truth. in his first public appearance since being fired by president trump, james comey accused the white house of lying about him and lying about the fbi. >> the administration then chose to defame me and, more importantly, the fbi by saying that the organization was in disarray, that it was poorly led, that the workforce had lost confidence in its leader. those were lies, plain and simple. >> reporter: and comey left no doubt about why he believes he was fired. >> it's my judgment that i was fired because of the russia investigation. i was fired in some way to change or the endeavor was to change the way the russia investigation was being conducted. that is a very big deal. >> reporter: comey's testimony left president trump uncharacteristically speechless. >> thank you all very much. thank you. >> mr. president, any reaction to comey's testimony? any reaction at all? >> thank you very much.
7:04 am
>> do you think he told the truth? >> reporter: the response instead came from trump's personal lawyer, marc kasowitz, who issued a direct challenge to comey, accusing comey of lying under oath. >> the president never suggested that mr. comey, quote, let flynn go, closed quote. the president likewise never pressured mr. comey. the president also never told mr. comey, quote, i need loyalty, i expect loyalty, closed quote. >> reporter: kasowitz keyed in on comey's acknowledgment that he asked a friend to leak the memos to the "new york times," describing his private conversations with the president. >> my judgment was i needed to get that out into the public square and so i asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter. didn't do it myself for a variety of reasons but asked him to because i thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. >> reporter: kasowitz suggested it could be comey who is in legal jeopardy.
7:05 am
>> we will leave it to the appropriate authorities to determine whether these leaks should be investigated along with all the others that are being investigated. >> reporter: but amidst a he said/he said, there's one thing on which comey and the who you agree. president trump was not under fbi investigation. >> i gather from all this that you're willing to say now that while you were director the president of the united states was not under investigation. is that a fair statement? >> that's correct. >> so that's a fact we can rely on? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: of course, that doesn't mean he's not under investigation now. the truth about the contested conversations may come down to tapes which trump tweeted may exist. tapes comey and many others in congress now say they'd like to hear. >> i've seen the tweet about tapes. lordy, i hope there are tapes. >> reporter: the white house still will not say whether or not those tapes or any recordings of the president's conversations with comey actually exist. but you can bet that the president and his team will be asked that question over and
7:06 am
over again until there is an answer. amy. >> all right, jon karl, thanks so much. and so comey's testimony raised and left many questions unanswered. for those investigating russia and the trump campaign our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas joins us now. pierre, comey certainly seemed like a man on a mission. what happens next? >> reporter: amy, good morning. with simmering but blistering focus, comey laid out his misgivings and deep concerns over what he felt was pressure when he came to believe was an attempt by president trump to alter the russian investigation by firing him. he never trusted trump. he was documenting each encounter with the president right after they talked and said yesterday that he's given those memos to special counsel bob mueller. bottom line, he wants mr. trump investigated and those close to trump face increasing scrutiny, the source telling abc news the senate intelligence committee is planning to interview jared kushner later this month. quite a showdown unfolding, amy. >> thanks so much, pierre. george. >> okay, amy, thanks.
7:07 am
i'm here with corey lewandowski, former trump campaign manager, now an outside adviser to the white house and president trump. thanks for coming in this morning. you know, we saw the president's tweet. he said basically that james comey was lying yesterday, also said he had vindication. you said james comey is a liar all the time. the president could prove who's telling the truth by releasing the tapes of the conversations. will he? >> i don't know if there are tapes. you know how the system works. >> no, every president is different but you know president trump. >> i don't know if there is a tape inside. the president has said maybe there is, maybe there isn't. i don't know if there is or isn't. i don't work in the building. what i do know is this. not yesterday when james comey was testifying, but when he was the director of the fbi he made repeated misstatements that he had to go back and clarify afterwards and he made the same -- >> there's a difference between a misstatement and lie. hold on a second. >> when you don't tell the truth, it's called a lie. >> when you make a mistake, you
7:08 am
make a mistake. you're an adviser to the white house and spent hours in the white house. this is a major issue of contention, does the president have tapes. if you don't know, why not? >> look, i don't work for the white house. i worked for the campaign. i have no formal role in the building. i don't know what the process -- >> how do you know if the president is telling the truth? >> i don't know if there are tapes. what we know for sure what jim comey said yesterday the president has never been under investigation. it's the only thing. if you listen to what marco rubio said, it's the only piece of information which was not leaked from the fbi. >> you believe james comey when he said the president was not under investigation. you don't believe him when he says the president asked for a loyalty pledge. you don't believe james comey when he says that in a meeting in the oval office with the president the president asked had him to let the flynn investigation go. >> what i don't believe is jim comey who is the director of the fbi for the last five years says i was so afraid because the president asked me to do something, i didn't know what to do. i wasn't qualified basically he said to call the attorney general, to call the white house counsel to call the deputy attorney general. this is the director of the fbi. and he was so shell-shocked,
7:09 am
stunned, if you will that the president asked him to, hey, let it go potentially. i hope this goes away and what he said yesterday under congressional testimony was nobody has ever been tried or convicted of hoping for something. >> he swore under oath that was the truth. he told people at the time that was the story. he wrote contemporaneous notes. and he was actually asked yesterday why should we believe you and not president trump. here was his answer. you have to look at the whole testimony. >> you can't cherry-pick it and say i like these things he said but on this he's a dirty rotten liar. you got to take it all together and i've tried to be open and fair and transparent and accurate. a really significant fact to me is so why did he kick everybody out of the oval office? why would you kick the attorney general, the president, the chief of staff out to talk to me if it was about something else? and so that to me is -- as an investigator is a very fact. >> that is a pretty big question. why did the president kick
7:10 am
everyone out of the office? >> let me ask you this question -- jim comey at one -- >> answer this question first. answer that -- hold on a second. don't ask me another question. >> because jim comey opened the door on january 6th for a private one-on-one conversation with then president-elect trump. he said i'd like to brief you directly privately in trump tower. that was the normal course of business. why wouldn't the president have a personal private conversation with jim comey after jim comey originally asked for those private meetings? >> that was a private meeting back in january about the dossier because it was a sensitive personal matter. that was a separate meeting in february, february 14th, the attorney general was there, the vice president was there, jared kushner was there. the president asked them all to leave. why did he ask them to leave? >> maybe he wanted to have a conversation with jim comey directly. what i do know -- >> about michael flynn. >> jim comey testified yesterday under oath that he knew that jeff sessions was going to recuse himself. how did he know that? because he testified to -- >> he didn't say he knew that.
7:11 am
he actually said -- hold on. he said i believe that. he believed it would be inevitable based on information he received as fbi director. >> here's what we know, george. on march 1st, carol lee of the "wall street journal" wrote a story published and said there was fbi hand-wringing and no process for the attorney general to be recused from an investigation other than public pressure. >> how do you know what the president is saying is true? >> look, how do we know it is not true? here's what we know, two people are in the room, the director of the fbi and president of the united states. what we also know is that if the director of the fbi thought a crime was committed, meaning he was asked to obstruct justice by the president of the united states under 18 u.s. code section 4 he has an obligation, not only an obligation, a duty to report that to either the white house counsel, the attorney general, or the associated attorney general of the united states. he did none of those things and if he doesn't do that and knowingly conceals information of a crime, that is a felony punishable by three years in jail. >> james comey said that right now he has turned everything
7:12 am
over to the special counsel. >> did he turn over to the special counsel or the media? what he admitted he's the leaker. he is the deep state in washington that is everything that is wrong. he admitted under oath that he gave his contemporaneous notes to a law professor. if that what he has done and continues to do this, if this is his pattern as the fbi director he absolutely should have been fired and if he is the chronic leaker he should be prosecuted. >> you think that james comey should be prosecuted. a special counsel has been appointed. he now has the memos from those meetings with james comey so even though the president wasn't under investigation before he's very likely is under investigation now. >> he's absolutely not under investigation. james comey testified yesterday and he's only been removed from the fbi for less than two weeks, three weeks, that at that time candidate trump was never under investigation, president-elect trump was never under investigation. the president was never under investigation. is it possible under some strange scenario since he last
7:13 am
an investigation has started. it's possible. highly unlikely. >> isn't that why the president has a personal lawyer. >> no, that's what everybody does. that's what the clintons did. they brought in lanny davis to take care of all their problems, right? you were there. you remember it. >> i actually wasn't there at that time. final question, james comey answered these questions under oath. is the president prepared to answer these questions under oath as well? >> look, the president has no obligation to answer anything. what we do know he has said time and time again to reiterate the president has never been under fbi investigation and james comey testified to that yesterday. >> corey lewandowski, thanks very much. >> my pleasure. that was recorded just moments ago. i'm here now with our chief legal analyst dan abrams and our chief political analyst matthew dowd and you saw, dan, let me begin with you. corey lewandowski pretty much doubled down accusing james comey of perjury. the president used the word lies this morning as well. this is now almost certainly in the office of the special counsel. he'll be asking the questions now and big question is who will he find more credible and do the president's actions add up to obstruction of justice?
7:14 am
>> that was a heck of an interview but in the question of obstruction of justice, i think if you were to ask james comey, what do you think, he would say, that when i was directed to end part of the flynn investigation, i didn't think it was obstruction of justice at that point. even until the time i was fired, i didn't think it rose to that level. but i think if you were to ask james comey in a private moment what do you think now? i think he would say the fact that i was fired over the russia investigation in an effort, i think comey believes, to affect the russia investigation, that may then cross over into obstruction of justice according to james comey. i think that was clear from his testimony and it is clear from his testimony that he believes that mueller ought to be looking at that and i am confidence mueller will look at that. >> is it clear from these statements there are no tapes? >> i don't think there's any chance there were tapes. if there were tapes i think they could easily -- there's no ambiguity over whether tapes exist. they either exist or don't exist.
7:15 am
>> matt dowd, it's apretty clear from corey lewandowski from what we're seeing from the tweet that the white house strategy will be scorched earth against james comey. >> can i just say that the president of the united states declaring that he was totally vindicated and is a winner, i think he has his results from price waterhouse cooper because the last time a mistaken winner was declared when "la la land" was declared winner of the oscars. i think right now the senate gop members are going to just keep defending the castle but one thing they're unwilling to do is go out and be offensive. they're in a defensive crouch. >> thanks very much. much more sunday on "this week" right here on abc. amy. >> now to that breaking news from overseas, the results from britain's high-stakes election now in and abc's james longman is outside parliament with the latest. good morning, james. >> reporter: good morning, amy. yes, this is widely seen as a disaster for theresa may and the
7:16 am
conservative party. the labor party have had a good night but they don't have enough seats to form that government. this was a big risk for theresa may but she's seen to have a weak and unstable election campaign and of course those terrorist attacks in london and manchester did not help. she's been talking about a plan to form a coalition but with brexit just around the corner, this is a very unstable time. >> thanks so much. michael? >> thank you, amy. those explosive claims against reality winner, the 25-year-old government contractor accused of leaking top secret documents. brian ross is here this morning. good morning, brian. >> reporter: well, good morning, michael. some strange twists in the case this morning and some big questions about how someone like her had and kept a top secret clearance. until her arrest on espionage charges, 25-year-old reality winner was best known as a fitness enthusiast who posted
7:17 am
videos online of her exploits. >> yes. >> reporter: but in court thursday in augusta, georgia, federal prosecutors said winner harbored some very dark thoughts. they said fbi agents seized a handwritten note at her home that said, i want to burn down the white house. all this from someone who has a government contractor had access to the country's most closely guarded secrets. at this facility for the nsa, the national security agency. >> contractors typically have top secret security clearance but they're not subject to continuous monitoring by the agency. >> reporter: prosecutors say winner told her mother in a phone call, mom, i screwed up. they know about the documents. but told her family she would hide her real thoughts by playing the role of a pretty white cute girl who would braid her hair and cry. and prosecutors said she claimed to have actually coached her parents in the phone calls to play the sympathy card as in this interview with our station wsb. >> she offered up her life for this nation.
7:18 am
and to see her treated so violent is an insult to every person who ever wore a uniform. >> reporter: winner pleaded not guilty and remains behind bars but she's getting prominent support from fellow leaker edward snowden and comedian rosie o'donnell who gave her go fund me page $1,000 and called her a brave, young patriot. michael. >> thank you, brian. we're going to make a turn now to some scary video, a big scare for a woman in new jersey, and here she is. she's walking while texting. all of a sudden she falls right through that cellar door. firefighters were there within minutes but it took a while to get her out. the woman is in the hospital. she's in stable condition and expected to be okay. more than 1,000 people a year get hurt like this. >> that is so frightening, a wakeup call.

get ready to feel the heat. first major heat wave will scorch the northeast this weekend. temperatures nearing 100 degrees. we begin this half hour with bill cosby's words heard in court for the first time in his sexual assault trial excerpts from past interviews and depositions were read to the jurors and abc's linsey davis is at the courthouse in norristown, pennsylvania, with all of those details for us, good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, amy. we've heard the she said. now we're starting to hear the he said. bill cosby's version of events. one thing the jurors heard yesterday when a portion of the deposition was read aloud in court yesterday was cosby saying that when andrea and her mother started questioning him about what kind of pills he gave to andrea he says he never ended up telling them because he was starting to feel attacked. for the first time jurors are hearing bill cosby's side of the story. but not from him directly. excerpts from a 2005 police interview transcript were read to them by a pennsylvania police sergeant.
7:32 am
cosby's responses to questions about his relationship with andrea constand drastically differ from her account of their interactions. just one day earlier she detailed being drugged and sexually assaulted by the comedian at his home back in 2004 but cosby told police in order to relax her, he gave constand 1 1/2 pills of benadryl not the three blue pills she described. the sergeant read aloud this q & a about the night of the alleged assault. did she tell you to stop? no. did she push you away? no. why did the petting stop? >> i never intended to have sexual intercourse with andrea constand. we were petting. i enjoyed it. we stopped and then i went up to bed. while she told jurors she considered cosby a mentor, cosby told police they had engaged in petting at least four times in his home and that she only asked him to stop once and he did. victoria valentino, one of
7:33 am
cosby's accusers, spoke outside of court. >> i'm one of his victims and i know better. he uses that as an excuse. he has a pattern of behavior that is consistent throughout all of us 60 women. >> reporter: jurors also listened intently as a detective started reading graphic excerpts from the deposition cosby gave in 2005 where he explained why he gave andrea pills. the reason i gave them to andrea is that she was talking about stress. i wanted her to be comfortable and to go to sleep after we had our necking session. with regard to the one night he says constand stopped him cosby said she doesn't say to me don't ever do that again. i think i'm a pretty good reader of people in these romantic situations. one headline that has dogged bill cosby since the start of this trial is the absence of his wife of 53 years camille cosby. abc news has learned that mrs. cosby does plan to attend this trial and that she certainly supports her husband. amy. >> all right, linsey, thanks so much. veteran felony prosecutor
7:34 am
nancy grace joins us now from atlanta with more. nancy, we just heard that reporting from linsey. does it impact whether camille cosby is sitting in that courtroom or not? >> oh, it absolutely will impact the jury. i have tried felony cases both ways, with and without the victim's family or friends or supporters present in the courtroom. it means a lot the jury to turn around and look out in that courtroom and see who is or who is not supporting the defendant. it would give the impression that camille cosby does not believe her husband and that she's angry over this felony prosecution. i have always suspected that she will show up during the defense case. to make her not the center of attention as the state is unfolding a very, very difficult case for her to hear. >> let's talk about the state's case. we heard from cosby in past interviews and depositions. we know he's not going to take the stand himself but talk about what the impact was, how the
7:35 am
prosecution did with those excerpts? >> they did really well and, of course, the defense camp, i believe, has leaked rumblings that cosby may take the stand. he's not going to take the stand. he would be sliced up like a thanksgiving turkey on a silver platter on cross-examination. i imagine if they did leak that, it would be to throw off the state so they'd have to scurry the night before to prepare a cross-examination for cosby instead of focusing and honing in on what they've got to do. now, the jury has heard his story, not by him, of course, he's not taking the stand but through prior statements about constand. but today i predict they are going to hear his 2005 deposition on his practice of giving prescriptions of quaaludes, quaaludes and giving them to other women to then take advantage of them, have sex with them. you know, here's the crux of it.
7:36 am
when you don't know a horse, look at his track record. we don't know exactly what happened that night with andrea constand, but by his own admission, we know his track record, right? >> yeah, you're hearing it from the horse's mouth literally. >> yes, exactly. and there's no two ways to interpret it because he is saying it and you know another thing about prior victims, all these alleged 60 plus victims of cosby's, we're not going to hear from them but we did hear from one, kelly johnson, and it brought to mind the dichotomy of rape victims. i've had them on the stand just break down sobbing, bending over where they couldn't even speak, and then the other nightmare for a prosecutor where they freeze up and they can't say anything. we've had kind of a mix of the two of those and the jair has seen all of this. >> well, some very dramatic testimony today in the case. we appreciate your time, nancy grace, thanks so much.

hero to many. but critics say she betrayed her country plain and simple. she would argue in the fog of war, it's much more complicated than that. so many people call you a traitor. many call you a hero. >> right. >> who is chelsea manning? >> so, i'm just me. it's as simple as that. >> reporter: yet the story she's sharing this morning for the first time is far more complex. the world first heard about her as bradley manning in 2010 when the army intelligence analyst was charged with leaking the largest trove of government secrets in u.s. history. do you feel as though you owe the american public an apology? >> i've accepted responsibility. no one told me to do this. nobody directed me to do this. this is me. it's on me. >> reporter: it was images like this that manning says compelled her to go to wikileaks. american soldiers carrying out an aerial attack on what ended being unarmed civilians including children, among the dead two reuters journalists. >> oh, yeah, look at that, right through the windshield.
7:41 am
>> ha, ha. >> getting all this information, death, destruction, mayhem and eventually you stop -- i stopped seeing just statistics and information and i started seeing people. counter insurgency warfare is not a simple thing. it's not as simple as good guys versus bad guys. it is a mess. >> reporter: she leaked over 700,000 documents in total saying she wanted to spark public debate. so you didn't think any of it was going to threaten national security? >> no. >> there are those who say you may have been motivated to get the information into the public's sphere but you might have also given it to our enemies. >> right, but i have a responsibility to the public, you know, it's not just about -- we all have responsibility. >> reporter: manning was acquitted of the most serious charge of aiding the enemy. but pled guilty to others and was sentenced to the longest prison term for any american leaker, 35 years. within days she made another life-changing decision. what made you decide to come out as trans after being sentenced? >> i had to be who i am.
7:42 am
>> reporter: but the military denied her request for hormones, fighting for her right to transition so daunting she says she tried to commit suicide twice which led to time in solitary confinement. >> why was it so important to you to fight for hormone treatments while you were behind bars? >> it literally keeps me alive, keeps me from feeling like i'm in the wrong body, and like -- i get these horrible -- used to get niece horrible feelings like i want to rip my body apart. >> reporter: the army ultimately granted her request and five months ago after seven years in prison a gift from a parting president. clemency. >> i feel very comfortable that justice has been served. >> reporter: you haven't spoken to president obama. what would you say to him if you could? >> thank you for giving me a chance. that's all i wanted. >> wanted a chance. >> that's all i asked for was a chance, that's it. and this is my chance.
7:43 am
>> reporter: even though president obama commuted manning's sentence it was not a pardon and yet the seven years she served was already longer than any other leaker in u.s. history. but her fight is not over. she is appealing her case with lawyers from the aclu and support from amnesty international who object to her months in solitary confinement saying she has more than paid. >> that's the point president obama made. you did a lot of interviews for this story. the intelligence community is still pretty upset. >> absolutely and the portrait that emerges is a very complex character. she is a millennial who likes fashion. she has hundreds of thousands of fans on social media but she has those detractors in the intelligence community who say the bottom line even if she was trying to expose wrongdoing she should have gone up the chain of command because there's no way of knowing the long-term impact of those leaks. >> we know about the solitary confinement but what did she say about the seven years behind bars, what it was really like for her? >> i think she said before she got hormone treatment it was despair.
7:44 am
she attempted suicide twice because she was fighting for hormone treatments for her right to transition, her right to exist, she said, but once that happened she started getting all sorts of support. hundreds of letters every week from trans children she said often, people who would write the letter, put on the stamp and started getting flooded with social media messages and wrote an op-ed for "the guardian." she was very vocal and she found her voice. >> what will she do now? >> she'll take her time. i think that's one of the wisest things. i keep pressing her about which issues will you be the poster child for. she said, i'm going to take a deep breath and try to figure it out. >> you can see all of it with chelsea manning. it'll air next week on a special edition of "nightline," declassified, the chelsea manning story. michael? our big board, the final countdown. steph curry and lebron james about to go face-to-face for the last time this year as they try to make nba history. we're going to find out as the warriors try to make nba history. will they win it all? we'll talk about that when we come back in two minutes.

back back now with amy robach, my girl, and a special nba finals edition of our big board. espn's bruce bowen is joining us and t.j. holmes is where it's all about to go down at quicken loans arena in cleveland and this series is the most watched finals since michael jordan's championship in 1998 and tonight the golden state warriors, well, they're knocking on the door of nba history, one win away from winning it all in a perfect 16-0 playoff run. never been done before and the warriors have a commanding three-game lead against the cavs after kevin durant's last-minute three-pointer wednesday night sealed the deal leaving cleveland and you see lebron james right there all cleveland fans and lebron all stunned and welcome, welcome, you guys. hey, t.j., how are you doing, man? the cavs on the brink of elimination trying to avoid -- sorry, trying to avoid the sweep. you're in there.
7:48 am
you're in the thick of it. what's the mood in cleveland right now? >> well, i would say it's more so of resignation than resolve. cleveland rocks and these are some of the best sport fans you will find. but i would not call them delusional. they know that they have a hole now that no one has ever dug out from. i spent a lot of time around town here yesterday talking to people the other day, just yesterday, and no one here is talking about winning a championship. they are talking about winning a game and trying to keep the warriors from celebrating the championship on their floor here tonight but after watching game three they were just gutted after that effort and everything that the q was just on fire and electric but still people have to say we might not have enough talent to keep up with these warriors and maybe not enough gas in the tank. lebron has had to play so many minutes and looked gassed at the end of that game, so strahan, a lot of people starting to come face-to-face with reality. >> bruce, i got to ask you. do you think the warriors will sweep it tonight? >> oh, absolutely. we talk about it. >> no question.
7:49 am
>> coming together, kevin durant, look at what steph curry was able to do. steph wasn't playing this way in the finals last year. this has been the year of redemption, this has been a year of some getback as james brown would say, ain't that right, michael? when we say these things, it's because of what transpired last year. draymond green had issues. they were up 3-1. he no longer plays in the game and it all changed. right now you have three talented individuals as far as kevin durant, klay thompson and steph curry taking the selfless route so they can go to the common goal of winning a championship. >> and, t.j., i have a big question for you. a lot of rumors lebron james on the move again after the season. what's going on with that? >> yeah, here we go with this. are we really talking about this? remember lebron first left cleveland to go to miami and now they're taking about him leaving cleveland again to go to miami.
7:50 am
it sounds like he's chasing nice weather. but the story is out with sources talking about rumors and rumblings that he would leave after next season which he can, leave cleveland again and go to l.a. and possibly play with the clippers or the lakers, just rumors at this point. but we have learned now this might be something to some of these rumors because we didn't think he would leave in the first place. >> bruce doesn't buy it. look at his face. >> stop it. stop it. that man is not going to l.a. to play in those towns or in that city. come on. it's about what lebron james has been able to do in the great state of ohio. what did he say after that championship, michael? cleveland, this is for you! >> we got to go. stop that, bruce. stop that, as you told us. we got to go, man. thank you to bruce, thank you, t.j. i'm glad you two are not in the same place. this would be a fight going on. you know, everybody stay right there. we'll be right back. oh, boy. >> i love his face. coming up, "gma's" summer concert series presented by king's hawaiian. irresistible since 1950. irresistible since 1950. lot on. my 30-year marriage... 3-month old business...

plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots.
