7:02 am
happening in washington. president trump and the first family back from a weekend in bedminster, new jersey. on sunday, the president spoke with the leaders of china and japan about the ongoing tensions with north korea and this week, a big meeting, president trump is going to meet for the first time with the russian president vladimir putin at the g20 summit in europe and senate majority leader mitch mcconnell responding now to the president's call for obamacare to be repealed even without a replacement health care deal in place. mcconnell saying he will push forward with the current plan to repeal and replace simultaneously. and we begin this morning with the president pouncing on the media. president trump tweeting out this video over the weekend showing him in an old wwe clip, but in this version you can see he is body slamming cnn. abc's david kerley at the white house with much more on that. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this morning, the president is being roundly criticized in a bipartisan matter for that tweet and the video amping up his battle with the media and all this going on as his republican colleagues are trying to change health care and sell it back home. the official presidential tweet is an old wrestling video
7:03 am
takedown with businessman trump. doctored with the cnn logo covering the face of his victim. one face of the media pummeled in the world of fake wrestling. outrage even from republicans immediately. >> the president of the united states is inciting violence against the free press. >> reporter: but the president defended by his homeland security adviser who saw this for the first time on "this week." >> you're in charge of homeland security there. that seems like a threat. >> yeah, certainly not, though. i think that no one would perceive that as a threat. i hope they don't. >> reporter: elected republicans quickly denouncing the president's attack on journalists and the first amendment. >> this is the fourth of july weekend. the declaration of independence is pretty darn clear about this. >> that's ridiculous. everybody is flabbergasted. he ought to stop doing it. >> reporter: but hours earlier, mr. trump marking his first fourth of july as president escalated his war of words about those who write about him. >> the fake media tried to stop us from going to the white house, but i'm president and
7:04 am
they're not. >> reporter: the president in another tweet calling his comments modern day presidential. this just the latest. days ago calling cable news hosts joe scarborough and mika brzezinski crazy and dumb as a rock. >> he has once again shown the world that he can be played. he can be tweaked. >> reporter: cnn the subject of the altered video said in a statement the president is involved in, quote, juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. the president remains in new jersey this morning. he returns here to the white house this afternoon. he has not tweeted this morning and, dan, as we mentioned earlier, very big week. the president to travel to the big meeting to meet with vladimir putin. >> so many people going to be watching that very closely. david kerley at the white house, thank you very much. for much more on all of this, let's bring in abc's cokie roberts and matt dowd. good morning to both of you. >> good morning.
7:05 am
we're glad to see you there, dan and -- >> happy fourth. >> so let me start with you, cokie. some defenders of this video are saying, look, this was clearly a joke and self-important journalists are taking it too seriously, what is your take? >> you know, i'd prefer not to talk about the president's tweets at all. i think that he's trying to distract us with sort of bright, shiny objects from his failed programs. but the fact is that this one we really do have to talk about. it is appalling. first of all, i didn't know about the original wwe thing, which is pretty appalling in itself. but, you know, we are in a time when somebody goes to a ball field and shoots people just because they're republicans. not an individual as assassins normally did but just because they're republicans. we could easily be at a time where somebody decides to shoot people just because they're journalists and that's really scary. >> matt, aren't we watching a familiar ritual play out here? the president does or says something provocative, an establishment of media voices
7:06 am
outraged, and, meanwhile, the president's base either shrugs it off or cheers him on. is this any different to your mind? >> well, you're right. the president continues to do things that are very provocative and beneath the office. i mean, i think it has had a dramatic effect since inauguration day. if you think about the president, he got 46% of the vote. today his job approval rating is 37%, which means there's been a deterioration of people that support him but more importantly, for the president politically, more -- almost 50% of the country strongly disapproves now of this president and much of that rise has been his own self-inflicted wounds over the course of his presidency. >> cokie -- >> now, of course, a huge part of the country also disapproves of the media and he has been very successful in ginning that up. >> you said before it's a bright, shiny object to distract us. did you think -- you see a real strategy here? >> yes, i absolutely do.
7:07 am
the president tweets and we talk about it. instead of talking about the fact that health care can't get through, the tax reform isn't happening and that the president is going off to this g20 summit where he is going to meet with vladimir putin and what about russia and russia's influence on our election? we're not talking about those things. we're talking about the president's tweets. >> well, let's talk about that, matt. this meeting with putin coming up in just days. what are the stakes here for president trump, given all of the ongoing investigations and given the fact as we pointed out over the weekend here on "gma," that he said tough things about many of the world's leaders but not about putin? >> i don't remember the president putting out a wwe video related to vladimir putin or attacking vladimir putin in the course of this. he's attacked the press and it's unbelievable over the fourth of july more than he's attacked
7:08 am
russia and vladimir putin in this. i'll disagree with cokie which i hesitate to do on one thing. i think -- i think this is a distraction, but just like if somebody swims naked in the river in my backyard, it's a distraction but it doesn't mean it's a strategy. yes, he's distracting this and there's big issues to face but this is a guy who has impulse control problems and not somebody that is strategic about this. he does these things then everybody else has to clean up the mess. >> so somebody has clearly been swimming naked in your backyard, matt, because i don't know where else you would have pulled that metaphor out of. thank you very much, cokie, matt, really appreciate it. thank you very much. we do have one other political note this morning. there are pictures making waves on social media right now. here they are. new jersey governor chris christie, a prominent trump ally, seemed to enjoy a beach he had just closed to the public. a budget standoff has forced the shutdown of state beaches during the holiday weekend. the governor is seen with his family and friends. nobody else is there. later he was asked if he had
7:09 am
gotten any sun and he said no, then these pictures came out and the spokesman said he was on the beach but he didn't get any sun because he was wearing a hat. amy. >> all right, well, weather is also making news speaking of sunshine and wearing hats and we have severe weather that's actually affecting so many people. some dangerous wildfires and many are still not contained at this hour. ginger has the latest on that. ginger, good morning. >> amy, i want to start with the impressive pictures from maine over the weekend. can you see this waterspout forming over a lake and then becoming one of four tornadoes that they saw in maine. that doubles their annual average number of tornadoes. i want to show you what else happened. the damage there, up to 80-mile-per-hour winds in oklahoma. today more severe weather threat. you can see along that cold front, ohio, western pennsylvania, but the bulk of it and the most severe would happen in western oklahoma and kansas. then those wildfires, at least 30 of them burning across the west, many of them in arizona, one of them forcing evacuations this morning. just east of tucson, tucson had
7:10 am
its hottest june on record and look at this. as i was flying back from new zealand that picture of the brian head fire, more than 60,000 acres burned in utah. dan. >> ginger, thank you. she had a big trip to new zealand, excited to hear more about that. we're going to move now to iraq, where u.s.-backed iraqi forces are winning the battle to retake the major city of mosul from isis in what would be a major blow to that terrorist group and abc's ian pannell who has spent years reporting from war zones around the world, joins "gma" for the first time from the front lines. ian. >> reporter: dan, as you can probably see the battle for this city is still raging. but that hasn't stopped iraqi troops from holding a victory parade this morning. they say they'll recapture the city in just 48 hours. but winning the battle for mosul and defeating isis are two very different things. three years since isis took over the city, the center of its power in iraq now finally victory is at hand. just 100 or so isis fighters
7:11 am
left pinned down in the old city. but fighting to the death. the people of mosul didn't choose this war and they've paid a heavy price for it. hundreds possibly thousands killed. countless wounded. and made homeless. we watched dozens escape from isis limping to safety. and an uncertain future. even so, iraqi troops held a victory parade today. the government's planning a week of celebrations. and the president's also touting victory saying there's new urgency in the fight. >> but i want to tell you isis, a whole different ball game, folks. they're going fast. >> reporter: however, once the militants are driven out of here, the united states and its allies still face potential threats from isis. don't forget the militants have created franchises in other countries and they've managed to agitate and recruit online. inspiring the kind of attacks we've seen from san bernardino to london. amy. >> all right, ian, thank you.
7:12 am
and now to that fatal road rage incident that happened in pennsylvania. it left a teenage girl dead and the suspect is now behind bars after turning himself in. abc's diane macedo is here with those details. good morning, diane. >> reporter: amy, good morning. bianca roberson's family was in tears as prosecutors announced the man accused of killing her is behind bars. now, roberson was preparing for her freshman year at college when police say she was gunned down over a traffic merge and prosecutors now say this was calculated. the alleged road rage killer accused of gunning down a teenager on a highway outside philadelphia is behind bars. >> this is the story of a savage and senseless murder. >> reporter: a massive three-day manhunt for 18-year-old bianca roberson's killer came to an end early sunday morning when authorities say 28-year-old david desper turned himself in and was charged with first degree murder. >> somebody didn't want her to merge into a lane of traffic and because of that a young woman is dead today.
7:13 am
>> reporter: this picture from a highway traffic camera shows bianca roberson's car and a red pickup truck jockeying for position as they merged in traffic. that's when police say desper took out his handgun and shot the recent high school graduate in the head. investigators released video surveillance collected from homes and businesses nearby. it shows a red truck driving away from the scene. police say they located that truck after desper surrendered and they also searched the suspect's home where they discovered the handgun allegedly used to kill roberson. now, police say this is not a hate crime, simply an act of road rage. desper is now being held out -- without bail. as for the family, dan, they say the arrest hasn't eased their pain. bianca was just days away from attending her college orientation. >> what a disaster for that family. thank you very much. we're going to turn now to colorado, where a flight landing at denver's airport erupted in flames and all the passengers
7:14 am
got out safely but now, of course, there are questions about what caused this fire and abc's gio benitez is right here with the story. gio, good morning to you. >> reporter: the fire starting just as this commercial jet landed on the tarmac causing chaos and panic and when you see this video, it's simply incredible that nobody was hurt. take a look at this frightening video. flames shooting out of a commercial jet's engine sunday. >> it's 5869. we're observing flames from here. >> tower, i see 4751. they've got a crj on fire. >> oh, my god. there is actually a fire. >> reporter: ryon, 1 of the 59 passengers forced to file onto the tarmac. >> they were urging others to move quickly, keep moving. >> reporter: the united express flight operated by skywest from aspen had just landed in denver when the engine seen here caught fire. >> it's not a brake fire at all. he's dumping fire out of the apu compartment of the engine. >> reporter: one woman snapping this photo moments after being evacuated with her young family. the five dozen passengers gazing at the scene as firefighters rush in dousing the flames.
7:15 am
and skywest telling us this morning all of those passengers deplaned safely thank goodness but no doubt the investigation is just beginning into what caused that fire in the first place. dan, amy. >> not what you want when you take a trip. gio, thank you very much. >> thanks, gio. now to those bear attacks in alaska. six of them in just the past two weeks, including one where this young boy single-handedly saved his family from a charging bear. abc's matt gutman has nose -- those details for us. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, amy. two of those attacks you just mentioned have been deadly. that boy just 12 years old may have saved his family and himself from adding to that statistic as the brown bear barreled through two of elliott clark's family members. elliott was faced to snout with the bear but the kid stopped the bear with his shotgun. this morning, 12-year-old elliott clark is being called a hero for rescuing his family from a heart-stopping attack by an enormous brown bear. clark and his family were on a fishing trip outside juneau two weeks ago when the massive beast
7:16 am
charged slamming into his uncle and grandfather. the preteen's fight or flight instincts kicking in, firing his shotgun at the animal wounding it, he and his uncle then killing it. and last week in anchorage, another young boy got a rude and terrifying awakening. >> it sound like a cannon burst through and hit straight past my ear. >> reporter: a black bear crashing through this 11-year-old's window in the middle of the night. >> i shot up, i screamed. i turned on my light and run. >> reporter: his mom said sleeping below the shattered window zach survived without a scratch, though the wild intruder did leave behind these deep gouges in his bedroom wall. these clashes with nature part of what appears to be a spike in bear encounters across alaska. six just in the past two weeks, two of those attacks deadly. including one in which a 16-year-old boy was killed by a bear while running in a popular race. >> he said there's a bear and from the sounds on the phone it appeared that an attack was
7:17 am
taking place right then. >> reporter: now, two fatalities in two weeks is incredibly unusual. there have been only six fatalities in the previous 130 years, so what's going on? wildlife officials say it could be a combination of increasing human outdoor activity in alaska, higher population in alaska, coupled with mild winters there which have apparently increased the bear population. so more bears, more people. unfortunately equals more interactions. amy. >> thanks so much. i just got back from alaska and that's what everyone was talking about. we did a couple of excursions in the woods and everybody had bear spray with them and strict instructions to follow -- just to avoid any possible conflict but it's scary out there sometimes. >> it's beautiful there but you have to be careful. let's get it over to ginger yet again and take a look at the national forecast. >> yeah, we thought why not. a lot of people still traveling and especially if you're hitting
7:18 am

7:31 am
evacuations and that intense heat keeps hitting the southwest with triple digits in the forecast and hundreds of severe storm warnings, from the plains to the northeast meanwhile, so it's a busy weather weekend. >> it is indeed, but we begin this half hour, with the disappearance of that young scholar studying at the university of illinois. a former student from that same university is now in custody and due in court today and abc's alex perez is in chicago with all of the latest on that. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, amy. investigators say it was a forensic search of the suspect's cell phone that helped them crack this case. this morning, brendt christensen, a former university of illinois grad student set to appear in federal court charged with the kidnapping of 26-year-old yingying zhang, a visiting scholar from china. the surveillance video from june 9th capturing the last time zhang was seen alive, apparently getting into christensen's car whom she did not know. investigators believe she accepted the ride because she was running late for an appointment and had just missed the city bus. according to a criminal
7:32 am
complaint, after first saying he did not recall his whereabouts on the day zhang disappeared, the fbi says christensen later told them he offered her a ride but let her out after she became panicked when he said he made a wrong turn. >> everybody is stunned. i've gotten many, many e-mails from graduate students and faculty expressing disbelief and complete surprise. >> reporter: law enforcement say after searching christensen's phone they discovered he had recently visited a web forum called abduction 101 containing the subthreads perfect abduction fantasy and planning a kidnapping. the fbi allegedly capturing him on audio surveillance explaining how he kidnapped zhang, brought her back to his apartment, and otherwise held her against her will. >> the entire family is very, very devastated. >> reporter: investigators have not yet found the graduate student's body. her family and friends distraught. >> very devastating just because
7:33 am
everyone was really trying to spread awareness of what happened and trying to get her found. >> reporter: and the local newspaper is reporting the suspect even attended a vigil for zhang after she was reported missing. investigators are now following up on this case and trying to get whatever information possible. we're going to send it back to you, amy. >> incredibly disturbing and so sad, alex. let's bring in former fbi former agent and abc news consultant brad garrett for more. we just heard alex reporting there that there are reports the suspect may have attended a vigil for the victim. how unusual is that? >> not unusual at all, amy. in fact, suspects attend funerals, they actually go on searches of people they have killed, and so the idea that he would go to a wake memorial gathering of hers just does not surprise me. >> and brad, not surprising at all, i mean police moved very quickly in this and they were able to get their suspect extremely quick. >> lucky because he was driving the car that there's a low volume type car in his particular community.
7:34 am
they identified the car, went to him. he actually gave them consent to search and did a voluntary interview initially. and then they captured this video that alex talked about where he apparently admitted abducting her so, the real key is where is she and hopefully they're on the trail to finding her. >> certainly the family hoping for that answer, indeed. a lot of evidence as you mentioned, the surveillance video, and this audio that describes him holding her against her will. >> think about the websites that he was going to, amy, about fantasy abductions, kidnappings. this kid must have been into some real bizarre fetish stuff i would assume based on the website he went to so who knows where this is going to lead as far as what was his real motivation. >> again, an incredibly disturbing story. we hope her family gets the answers that they need to know at this point in time. brad garrett, thanks for joining us. dan. >> thank you.

>> yes, on friday screen legend olivia de havilland hitting production with a lawsuit over her portrayal by oscar winner catherine zeta-jones claiming it paints her in a false light. take a look. >> the 1963 oscars, i have to say that's when things took such an ugly turn. not that everything was sunshine and lollipops up until then, but it was the academy awards that year when it became the point of no return for both bette and joan. >> all right, so, let's bring in insiders, "complex" magazine's alex gale is here at the table. good morning. alex. also joining us is legal analyst areva martin in los angeles. let me start with you. olivia de havilland is a two-time oscar winner. she's famous for movies like "gone with the wind." what can you tell us about this lawsuit? >> first of all, she says that scene that we just watched never happened. and that other scenes in the
7:48 am
series never happened and that she's painted in a negative light as a gossiper. she's suing fx and ryan murphy saying they violated her right to publicity that they used her name, her likeness and her image without her consent for commercial purposes and she wants damages. >> all right and, alex, "feud," by the way, i loved it. i watched the entire series. this is just the latest in a string of series that have faced lawsuits. will this affect anything going forward? >> it might, but definitely all of these biopics. there's been a surge in demand. "nwa film "straight outta compton" and the o.j. series and there are so many stakeholders you have to check off, family members, estates and fans and they all have a huge platform on social media. you saw with the tupac film "all eyes on me," was slammed by jada pinkett smith about her portrayal. so i think you're going to see this continue to happen but it's just, you know, part of the

game. >> yeah, and the demand is so high that people want to see these movies. that nwa movie was amazing. lawyers for olivia de havilland are pushing for a speedy trial here because of her age. but is it hard when you're a public figure to take people to task when they use your likeness? >> it can be challenging, dan. a couple of things in this lawsuit. one, she's likely to get that preferential treatment because she is over 70 and california law allows her to proceed to trial more quickly, but to the merits of her case, the "straight outta compton" case is a good example. jerry heller sued claiming that the depiction of him by paul giamatti painted him in a negative light and the court ruled that the public interest offense that's rooted in the first amendment allowed the producers to move forward with that movie without suffering any kind of claims because the matter was in the public arena and i think ms. de havilland

8:43 am
>> a good question. >> such a good question. >> i'm sure you've used many. >> we've used many. this is one of the big controversies in our office because honestly at any given point we all have about five different favorites so i will say though in the summertime it's really important to use a waterproof mascara and on days where we're going to have a wedding proposal, so waterproof is going to be really great because in the humidity it will help your makeup stay on. one brand we lover is covergirl. two formulas in waterproof of course, the super sizer and last blast are great in the drugstore brands. >> confusing when you look and have all of these options, i never know which one to pick. >> the thing too is lashes are so individual that for what i want because i have straight lashes might not be what everybody else wants so there is an element of having to try a couple to see what you like. >> we are glad you tried them all for us. >> under 20 bucks. michelle, thanks so much. for more "allure" summer favorites head to our website. coming up next we have singer, songwriter zz ward here to perform. don't go anywhere.
