tv   Good Morning America  ABC  January 31, 2018 7:00am-9:00am PST

7:00 am
going to be issues at theve a ge good morning, america. president trump delivers his first state of the union overnight. >> this, in fact, is our new american moment. >> touting success with optimistic words and taunting democrats who sat on their hands. our political team breaks down the reaction and congressman joe kennedy who delivered the democratic response is here on "gma." bracing for an arctic blast. the rockies to the midwest and northeast on alert. snow causing these accidents on icy roads and major coastal flooding. now a new system moving in. abc news exclusive. scott baio responding to those sexual abuse allegations, his former "charles in charge" co-star, nicole eggert, saying it started when she was 14. now he's here live only on "gma." ♪ i see a bad moon arising
7:01 am
and rare moon rising. the event more than 150 years in the making. a super blue blood moon in the sky right now, we're live giving you a front row seat to this incredible sight. good morning, america. a lot to get to this morning. george is in washington, d.c., for that big moment for the president, his very first state of the union address. >> yeah, amy, and, yeah, a group of us had lunch with the president yesterday before the address. the president was saying he really hoped it would be a uniting moment. that's what he was going to try to do. but, boy, that speech he chose to give did not do the trick last night. it was about the iciest reception i have ever seen inside that house chamber. democrats and republicans as divided as ever. >> and, george, the president even made news walking out of the speech. a comment he made after his address about that secret gop
7:02 am
memo was caught on a hot mike. >> and a kennedy delivering the democratic response. live, for the first time over. we'll talk to joe kennedy in just a moment. george, fun being poked at him, the curse of having to give the state of the union response. it always seems to happen. this time the question was, was he wearing chapstick? >> was it chapstick? was it drool? we'll talk to the congressman about that coming up. but first, jon karl starts us off. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. the white house had promised an optimistic and unifying speech. much of the speech certainly was optimistic, but from my vantage point inside that chamber, this was not a speech that unified congress. for his first official state of the union address, it was an upbeat, positive president trump. >> the state of our union is strong because our people are strong. >> reporter: boasted about an american comeback. >> for many years companies and jobs were only leaving us.
7:03 am
but now they are roaring back, they're coming back. they want to be where the action is. they want to be in the united states of america. that's where they want to be. >> reporter: and he highlighted low unemployment numbers for minorities. >> african-american unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded. [ cheers and applause ] and hispanic american unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history. >> reporter: democrats just weren't buying it. they spent most of the night sitting silently even as the president called for bipartisanship and unity. >> we all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny and the same great american flag. we proudly stand for the
7:04 am
national anthem. >> reporter: the president laid out his priorities for the year. some clearly designed to appeal to democrats. >> i have directed my administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of my top priorities. i am asking both parties to come together to give us safe, fast, reliable and modern infrastructure. >> reporter: and making his pitch for his immigration proposal, the president highlighted the horrific plight of two families whose teenage daughters were killed by the criminal gang ms-13. >> many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as illegal, unaccompanied, alien minors. >> reporter: but the specifics of his plan to protect dreamers and tighten border security drew hisses and boos from democrats. >> under the current broken system, a single immigrant can
7:05 am
bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives. under our flag -- >> reporter: as congress debates the fate of the so-called dreamers, president trump had this message. >> my duty and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber is to defend americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the american dream because americans are dreamers too. >> reporter: the president took a hard line on north korea, highlighting the repressiveness of kim jong-un's regime with the story of this man, a north korean defector who was tortured and had his limbs amputated before he managed to escape the brutal regime. >> today he has a new leg, but i understand, seong-ho, you still keep those old crutches as a reminder of how far you've come.
7:06 am
your great sacrifice is an inspiration to us all. >> reporter: as the president sketched out his immigrant -- immigration proposal, there was one campaign promise that was noticeably absent, no mention whatsoever of the second half of his most repeated campaign promise that mexico would be paying for the wall. george. >> thanks, jon. we are joined now by the congressman who gave the democratic response, joe kennedy of massachusetts. congressman, thanks for joining us this morning. you know -- >> glad to be with you. >> watching and the president last night it seemed like you were speaking to two very different countries, any common ground? >> i think absolutely common ground. and, look, i think part of what i was trying to articulate last night was that there's a whole, wide series of issues and values that unite americans, the second half of my speech was trying to target. let's focus on that idea of
7:07 am
those values, that vision, and that runs -- that runs through all americans. that's not a democrat or republican idea. >> what is your pitch to everyone out there who says the president's got a point, the economy is healthy, it's very, very strong, my 401(k) is doing pretty well and i'll start feeling a tax cut next month. >> it's clearly you're not going to be able to deny the fact that the stock market has gone up under president trump and obviously that's a good thing. i'd point out 50% of americans don't own a single stock and 80% of all stocks are basically controlled by 10% of american families so, if we're using the stock market as a barometer for economic success for the entire american country, then i'm not so sure that's the right metric -- >> not just the stock market, though. low unemployment, wages starting to go up. the tax cut will come to many working class americans. >> this tax cut, some parts of that tax cut are going to come to many working class americans perhaps, which are also seeing a cut to the ability to states and localities to make some of the investments there i think
7:08 am
americans have come to expect, and you're seeing a massive increase in our debt, which is going to, one, potentially lead to massive cuts to our social safety net including, remember, we spent much of the past year trying to destroy medicaid, which is another bedrock fundamental program that many americans depend on in order to get health care so press pause, understand that we are at a time of robust economic growth, fine, but let's try to find a way to make sure we leverage that for the benefit of all americans and not just wholly weighted towards those at the top. >> you spoke directly to the dreamers last night in spanish. the president spoke about that issue as well. laid out what he calls his compromise plan. are we going to get a deal before next thursday's deadline? >> look, so we better get a deal. this is something that i feel passionately about and i think the vast majority of americans do.
7:09 am
the vast majority of members of congress, democrat and republican, want to solve. we have two big problems, one, up until a couple days ago, no one knew where the president was on this because he kept saying different things to different people. now we've got a plan that he has articulated. that plan as he knows is a nonstarter on capitol hill so i would urge the president and his administration to -- if they really want a deal to sit down and start hashing out to make one rather than throwing bombs and then saying, hey, it's take it or leave it. that's not how a deal is made. >> you're the first -- you're the first member of the kennedy family to give a live response to the state of the union. how did it feel? >> that i didn't know. look, i had fun last night. it was an extraordinary honor for me. it was a privilege to be able to do it and particularly to be in a community like fall river at a school like diamond with the students there that are -- it's a pretty special place so i was honored to be there and hope that it's a message that will resonate. >> it is a special place. the city where i was born. one final question, you know, you couldn't completely escape the curse of the state of the union response. twitter had a field day with
7:10 am
your shiny lips so, did you bring your chapstick this morning? >> oddly enough, i decided to go a little bit light on the chapstick this morning. more on the coffee, light on the chapstick, which is probably a wise choice. >> congressman, thanks for joining us this morning. >> george, thank you. >> so, amy, he followed all the rules perfectly. he got made fun of giving the speech like everybody does and he made fun of himself the next morning. >> well done, george. thank you. we're going to move on now to new developments in the russia investigation. president trump caught on that hot mike speaking about that classified gop memo targeting the fbi. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas has those details from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: amy, good morning. it certainly looks like that controversial house intelligence report will soon be coming out but there's also new evidence that the special counsel is locked in and won't be distracted. abc news learning that the fbi director and deputy attorney general were both at the white house pleading with the white
7:11 am
house chief of staff john kelly to prevent the release of the republican house intelligence report before they had a chance to make sure it does not compromise classified information. those pleas apparently ignored as the president's mind appeared made up at the state of the union. >> must release the memo. >> don't worry. 100%. >> reporter: but for now, the memo still waiting to be reviewed as new evidence emerges that the special counsel continues to aggressively look into possible obstruction of justice. >> good afternoon, everyone. >> reporter: sources tell abc news the special counsel's office in recent days has contacted the former spokesman for the trump legal team, mark corallo, apparently wanting to know why he quit after only three months. corallo left, sources say, in part because he was concerned that some in president trump's camp were looking to unearth negative information about bob mueller and mueller's apparently interested in explosive accusations in michael wolff's
7:12 am
new book, which portrays corallo as concerned about the president's role in helping write a misleading statement aboard air force one about the nature of that infamous trump tower meeting between campaign officials and a group of russians. wolff wrote, corallo seeing no good outcome believed the meeting on air force one represented a likely obstruction of justice. >> in retrospect, i probably would have done things differently. >> reporter: the president's son said initially it was about russian adoptions but it was actually set up for the trump campaign to receive dirt on hillary clinton. dirt allegedly developed by vladimir putin. white house officials say the trump tower meeting provided no meaningful exchange but a critical question, what exactly did the president know about the trump tower meeting at the time? did the president know the real reason the trump tower meeting was being set up when he helped write that misleading statement? george. >> many more questions. thanks very much. let's get some analysis now from mary bruce, also our chief
7:13 am
political analyst matthew dowd and, mary, let me begin with you. the president ending that mystery, nunes memo incredibly controversial. looks like it's going to come out and will explode on capitol hill in part because they won't release the democratic rebuttal. >> yes, this is incredibly divisive. democrats have their own memo they want released. republicans say they need more time to vet that so they won't be coming out at the same time. overall republicans say that this memo, those republicans who want this out, say that it shows political bias that may have undermined the beginning of this investigation, may have called into question the integrity of the investigation. democrats say it's nothing more than a political hit job. while the president says he wants that out, remember, just hours before the speech last night, the white house told us the president had not seen it and had not reviewed it yet. >> he said it's 100%. let's talk about the speech more. matthew dowd, you were back in the oval office yesterday, of course, you used to work for president george w. bush, but you met with president trump yesterday and he said something to you similar to what he was telling network anchors, he hoped this would be a unifying speech. >> yeah, he related in the course of the conversation how he thought he was going to compromise on immigration and the democrats would meet him and
7:14 am
obviously reading that speech you didn't get any sense there was any room for compromise in that. i was thinking as we were leading in about this is the big -- the bad blood moon that's out -- the blue blood moon, the last time it was visible was in the 1860s and i think we are as divided now as we were then back when that rose the last time in the united states. i think the president and even i think the democrats would be -- it would be smart of them to look at what lincoln said in 1862, his first joint session speech where he said the dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate for the stormy present. the pile of difficulties we must all meet at this occasion. i think both parties need to get out of the trench warfare and figure out a way to come together and solve these problems. >> boy, it doesn't feel like it will happen any time soon, and mary, last night on immigration, sure doesn't look like a deal is possible before that deadline next week. >> no, certainly not a deal,
7:15 am
tied up with a bow. they may get closer. you heard the president say what he put on the table is a fair compromise. that's not how democrats see it. that's not even how many republicans see it. you have this looming deadline coming. they don't really seem to be any closer to finally getting this done and, george, you have to think about all those dreamers that were in the audience last night listening to the president concerned about their fate, whether they could be facing deportation. >> and the president said that could happen as soon as march 5th. thank you very much. back to michael. >> thank you. in his address president trump mentioned the stock market surged during his first year in office but wall street is opening this morning riding its worst slump since mid-2016 and rebecca jarvis is here and, rebecca, good morning to you. what is behind it? >> good morning. yeah, so amazon teaming up with jpmorgan and berkshire hathway had an impact on health care companies and insurance providers because these company,
7:16 am
amazon leading the way are teaming up to create their own independent health care company and, michael, whenever amazon introduces itself getting into a new category, there's a lot of fear in the market of what that could do to the pre-existing companies. we saw it in the book space when amazon got in there and crushed the competition. always the fear they'll do it again. >> afraid they'll take it over. what is the big picture impact of this drop the last two days? >> you look at these last 24 hour, it's a drop in the bucket compared to what's happened over the last year. the dow up 31% over the last year. worldwide stock markets have surged over the last year and if you look at that typical 401(k), over the last year, michael, it is up almost $25,000. >> pretty good. good money. >> for anybody who has money in the market. >> that helps them. there's another big headline, apple. >> yes. >> under investigation slowing down the iphone. >> yes, so we spoke to tim cook about this a few weeks ago when i spoke with him. the company has been facing backlash over this question of slowing down their phones in order to help with battery issues. now, the doj and s.e.c. are reportedly looking into it. when i spoke with tim cook he apologized and reiterated that apology from the company.
7:17 am
>> all right. thank you, rebecca. appreciate it. amy. all right, we move on now to the super bowl and the most closely watched gloved hand since michael jackson's. >> hee-hee. >> nice one there. patriots quarterback tom brady still covering that injured right hand just four days before the big game and t.j. holmes is in balmy minneapolis with more on that. hey, t.j. >> hey, good morning. i'm in training camp this morning, right? well, it's a mock one but this is a spot called the super bowl experience. a million fans expected to come through here over the next few days to test their skills as nfl players. but, yes, as you all say the talk of minneapolis continues to be -- i don't know how to put this -- tom brady's body part. he showed up wearing two gloves. yesterday one glove on that hand injured in practice a few weeks ago and had to get several stitches but still able to lead his team to the afc championship. he's wearing a special glove made by under armour, one of his
7:18 am
sponsors, and the recovery continues. he's making fashion statements at this point. he will play in all likelihood play well. >> t.j., if it's not brady's hand it's gronkowski's head with the concussion. what do they expect by him? he'll be out there, of course, i suspect? >> yeah, you expect, right. but it's not up to him. he was asked specifically about it yesterday and everybody got excited. he said, yes. you remember that hit. that hard hit he took in the afc championship. he's in concussion protocol and he was asked specifically you expect to play. he said, yes, but, remember, guys, it's not up to him. he has to pass tests and get out of the protocol. no matter how he feels he has to be cleared to play and that hasn't happened officially yet, guys. >> all right, t.j., thanks. we know you'll keep us up to date. zblmpbt let's head over to jirpg. >> we go straight to the cold cities brought to you by venture card.

7:32 am
a closer look at the story. this morning, nicole eggert and scott baio both speaking out about allegations of sexual abuse. >> nobody likes to be told what to do. >> reporter: eggert doubling down on her claims her "charles in charge" co-star molested her while the two worked together on the '80s sitcom telling megyn kelly the abuse started when she was 14 and continued quite often through the age of 16. >> the issue with him is that he was our boss and, you know, he also was telling me, you know, you can't tell anybody. this is illegal. i'll go to jail. the show will be over. everybody will be sued. you know, you'll be out of a job and, you know, you'll ruin everybody's life and it's scary. that's intimidating especially when you're that young. >> reporter: the allegations initially playing out on social media with eggert tweeting over the weekend, ask scott baio what happened in his garage at his house when i was a minor. creep. >> i'm going to knock down these false claims against me. >> reporter: baio's refuting all her allegations in this post presenting past letters from his
7:33 am
attorneys denying similar claims and citing eggert's past interviews about him as what he calls proof there was no misconduct. but baio did admit to one consensual encounter he says happened after she turned 18. >> i remember her calling me and asking to come over and coming in my house one time and seducing me. >> reporter: but eggert saying that's not what happened. she says it happened at her house when she was 17 and "charles in charge" was still in production. >> did you initiate it or did he initiate it? >> he initiated it. >> any doubt in your mind you were under the age of 18? >> no doubt in my mind. >> scott baio joins us live now with his publicist. scott zyou just heard nicole. she says she has no doubt she was under 18 when the two of you had sex. you say she was 18 and you also say you have proof. >> i do. i do have proof.
7:34 am
"charles in charge" ended in the fall of 1990 and she said in the nik ritchie interview, the dirty.com that we had sex when she was 17 and she said we had sex long after "charles in charge" was done. nicole eggert was born in january of 1972. "charles in charge" ended in the fall of 1990, so that would have made her an adult, 18-plus, and she said that it happened long after "charles in charge" was done. those are her words. >> correct, and that was a radio interview with nik ritchie you bring up. now she says it did happen when the show was filming. that she lied at the time to protect the show because that's what she thought she needed to do. >> she lied at the time to -- so i'm trying to figure out which time she's lying and which time she's not lying because the story seems to change quite a bit. so and i can't keep up with her quite honestly.
7:35 am
>> i want to also bring up nik ritchie. he issued a statement. this is the man she was talking to and we should point out that he and eggert both share a manager but he now says nicole was distraught after that interview. she told me it was much worse than she described on air. she said he molested me as a child and i didn't know any better. i can vividly remember that statement. it's not one you would forget. what happened with you and nicole when she was 14, 15, 16? >> absolutely nothing. and i find it interesting, amy, that the moment that her first allegation that we had sex when she was 17 which is not true, as soon as that was proven to be 100% false, she comes up with a new story where something happened once a week for years. now, i don't know if you've ever been on a sitcom set but on any given day on every day, and especially "charles in charge," which was like a picnic every day, one of my favorite jobs
7:36 am
i've ever done there's teachers, parents, family, crew, producers, my dad. so, how any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible and i find it -- i don't know how anybody can believe what she's saying when her first allegation of having sex when we were 17 had been proven to be 100% false and her story keeps changing. it comes up -- she makes up new things. by the way, i'm not the first person she's done this to. >> okay. she got very specific about you. she says eggert said you had sexual contact with her touching her inappropriately when she was 14. she says, and you mentioned this, that it was not a one-time incident that that happened like once a week. how would you describe your relationship with eggert on the set? was it strictly professional? was it flirtatious? >> no, it was great. >> amy, i can tell you and i
7:37 am
mean this sincerely one of the most fun things i've ever done. talented girl. we had a great time on the set. everybody liked each other. everybody got along. >> nothing inappropriate? >> it was impossible because when a child is on a set, they're either in school or they're on the set with a teacher and their parents. >> so, you never alone with her. >> no, unless i was in a scene alone with her and directors and producers and crew guys are watching. never. never. it's impossible. and the amount of time that we spent on the show was -- >> you never saw her off the set? >> off the set? i saw her in the studio a lot. yeah, off the set. >> she mentioned your garage in one of her tweets. >> i have no idea what that means. i have no idea. so you can't just keep making up different things. >> i want to ask you about this. adam who played nicole's brother on the show, reportedly said he witnessed inappropriate cuddling between you and nicole on the set and
7:38 am

these light frivolous things. they didn't like that at all. >> absolutely. >> you also say that parents, you're the role model for your kids. we all are but at a certain age, you hear the parents say they want to hang out with their friends. >> peers. >> how do you balance that? it's a difficult change to see them move away from you toward peers. how do you support that and still be supportive of that without losing yourself? >> this is the toughest part for any parent. the beginning of this age range, you know, kids are really listening to their parents but near the end they start listening a lot to their peers and that's with we don't want it to be a push/pull dynamic but follow the kids' lead and meet them where they're at and get to know their social world so as they get older they keep the lines of open communication and make sure that as they confront sex or drugs or alcohol parents can openly communicate with their kids about it. >> so they're not just talking to peers but parents a little bit too. not as much but a little bit. >> rough with 13-year-old girls.
8:24 am
>> you two have really helped. but i'm stop panicking. >> it's going to be okay, michael. >> we're not done and have more coming up. i love what the young lady said, nobody is perfect. for her to realize that between 7 and 10 is pretty powerful. dr. anderson, thank you. deborah. >> watch out for the lice. >> thank you so much. going to go over to ginger. >> thank you, michael. it's time for your "gma" moment. this one has to do with james dean. not the james dean you're thinking about but the dog named james dean, watch what this dog can do. it is really impressive. okay, we sped it up a little bit but either way, he loves to help on the construction sites and goes up to these rooftops and loves to see tucson from that angle. james dean, you are just as cool as the original. i got to say. please do send your "gma" moment good morning, i'm abc 7 meteorologist mike nicco here is a look at at accuweather highlights, the highs remain mild, the clouds keeping us

weekday morning from 4:30 to ♪ i really need you tonight forever is going to start tonight ♪ welcome back to "gma." and been quite a sight this morning, the moment of peak totality for this morning's super blue blood moment that happened moments ago. >> that is beautiful? >> really pretty. we have correspondents across the country covering this event so let's check in first with nick watt at the griffith observatory in los angeles and, nick, i know you have a huge crowd there with you. >> reporter: i mean i think it's the best seat in the house. there is about a thousand people who got up stupid early this morning to watch this here in los angeles. of course, all the way up the coast and in hawaii as well, and i'm joined by two young fans of this deep, dark moon, priscilla and hank. guys, how excited are you?
8:31 am
>> super excited. >> hank even wore his nasa sweatshirt for the occasion. what do you think, hank? it's a good night, isn't it? it's a good night. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> reporter: there's also some superstition that surrounds this. some think it's the moon and sun fighting and we on earth must come together as a good example. other people say that it's a sign of things are going to change on earth and buddhists believe that whatever you do during this moon will be magnified tenfold so, guys, be good. be good. >> wow. all right. that is good advice, indeed. >> did you see the little girl, like, yes? >> ginger is going thank goodness i'm not having my baby on the full moon. i'd have ten more. >> i've been having some feelings this morning already. >> you know what they say about the full moon and labor. >> and we will see. in a little bit. >> the morning just got better. yes, it did. [ applause ] well, we're going to get more on the science behind -- we're going to get more on the science
8:32 am
behind this lunar phenomenon. astrophysicist hakeem oluseyi is here. thanks for joining us. and hakeem, what makes a lunar eclipse so special? >> so, today, we're experiencing a third in a series of supermoons and it's also the second full moon of the month which makes it a blue moon and because the earth is passing into the -- the moon is passing into the earth's shadow that it makes it a total lunar eclipse. >> tell us what means to have a supermoon and also what's happening during an eclipse? >> yeah, so what makes the moon super, it is bigger and brighter and the reason why it's bigger and brighter is because it's closer to earth. the moon isn't always the same distance as it orbits the earth sometimes it's closer, sometimes it's farther away. the closest we call perigee. when there is a full moon then it's a supermoon and, yeah -- [ applause ]
8:33 am
and also, when the moon passes into the earth's shadow that's what happens during a total lunar eclipse so you might ask, why isn't the moon completely blacked out? why is it red? the reason why is because the same reason why we have a blue sky and we have red sunsets. the earth's atmosphere bends the light around the earth to make it fall on the moon and the blue light gets scattered out going in all directions and the red light makes it through so the moon appears red. >> i tell you what, he's like dancing around. you're a super astrophysicist. hakeem, thank you so much. we appreciate that. audience, we all learned a little something, and we're going to go to kayna whitworth in san francisco bay and we hear people have spent the night on board waiting for the eclipse. >> reporter: michael, that's right. this is so cool. so i am on board this aircraft carrier and people actually stayed the night here and they slept in the barracks to wake up with the crew and view the super blue blood moon.
8:34 am
this family spent the whole night here. i actually heard you telling your boys you're sitting on a runway right now which is absolutely true. you thought the barracks were a little uncomfortable. >> yeah, just a little bit. >> yeah, a little uncomfortable, he said. what did you think? >> i couldn't sleep. >> he couldn't sleep. but they loved this super blue blood moon and your favorite part of it? >> it was -- when it started turning red. >> when it started turning red, but you kind of like the eclipse part the best? oh, that's so fun. and this woman right here says she hasn't been up this early in 40 years since she had her son so, ginger, we're all thinking about you out here, i have to say. it is absolutely a spectacular experience, though, michael. >> all right. kayna, thank you so much. looked like everybody is up early. got the lawn chairs out. >> i'm over here checking on ginger. >> i know. >> my best friend said anecdotally in her two decades of practicing that more babies are born around a full moon. >> i gave birth on a full moon. >> you did? >> get a room in a hospital.
8:35 am
because they said everybody was going -- we'll be watching ginger closely. in the meantime, let's go out to clayton sandell at bluff lake nature center in denver, colorado, and clayton, tell us what's happening there. >> reporter: hey, guys, it's about 34 degrees but we still have hundreds of hard-core astronomy fans out here. the moon is behind a cloud but hoping it comes back out watching it all morning and i have phil plate with me. the astronomer on twitter from sci-fi.com. why is the moon red? what accounts for that? >> well, if you're standing on the moon, what you're seeing is the earth blocking the sun and the sunlight is coming through the earth's atmosphere and it's turing red just like the sun turns red at sunset so the only the red light is getting through. so, if you're standing on the moon you see the sunrises and all the sunsets on the earth happening at the same time. >> reporter: and unlike a solar eclipse, a lot can see a lunar eclipse. >> that's right, a solar eclipse is when the moon blocks the sun the shadows on the earth, and you have to be in the right place at the right time.
8:36 am
here everybody can see this. >> the sun is starting to rise and the moon setting soon. a few more minutes to enjoy it. back to you. >> all right, enjoy it. i want to say thanks to clayton, kayna and nick for bringing us that. [ applause ] yes, and you'll get another chance to see a super blue blood moon. >> that's the first time you slipped up. i'm going to give you that. >> i was thinking about taylor swift, bad blood, all that. you can see in the united states but it's going to be exactly 19 years from today, okay. the next one happens january 31st, 2037. >> so you're marking your calendar. >> your child will be 19 years old. >> well, there we go. born today. all right, everybody, coming up so many of us are glued to our phones but could it be giving you wrinkles. >> yes. >> all right. and it's a beautiful morning down at secrets resort. everyone there is celebrating a big surprise that we have for you coming up just ahead on "good morning america."
8:37 am
8:38 am
8:39 am
we are back now with the everyday things that could be aging you without you even realizing it. we have board certified dermatologist dr. whitney bowe to help us navigate this and i'm going to begin with this. technology is making us age faster? >> right. so don't shoot the messenger, but new studies are showing that bluelight emitted from these screens, things like your
8:40 am
smartphone, your computer screen, even certain indoor bulbs are actually prematurely aging our skin by generating what are called free radicals. they're like tiny little missiles that actually target our dna and damage our skin cells. >> so working in television is not good for my skin. >> well, other people watching you should wear their sunscreen. >> all right. and then also it's wintertime, so we've got a lot of heat on. how does heat affect our skin? >> it depends on the source of the heat but, if you're being exposed to infrared heat, it cannot only cause wrinkles but brown spots, as well. so we think about infrared heat, most of us think about it coming from the sun. it's invisible but you feel it on your skin, it's what warms your skin but we're actually exposed to infrared heat all winter long in the form of space heaters, food warmers, hair dryers, actually for those of you who take hot yoga classes most of the time they're using an infrared heating device. >> oh, my gosh. >> i was thinking about that. amy is not going to want to hear that.
8:41 am
>> what do we do? how do we reverse these? >> this is how you to take care of it. it all comes down to neutralizing or quenching those free radicals before they can damage your skin. >> okay. >> so the first thing you want to do -- there is a solution. you can continue to do your hot yoga. you want to look for a cream that's got powerful anti-inflammatory properties so this is my favorite called metagerm. heal and prevent cream on metagerm.com. solid science that can dial down inflammation and get your antioxidants through diet, matcha powder. i add a scoop to high smoothly. from the inside out. >> that helps you not get burned when you're in the sun. >> yes, you noticed that? >> yes, i have. okay, so i have to say this, we move on to something that we might be doing every night to age ourselves. how many of you in the audience i say this because i had -- i had sheet marks on my cheek when i got in this morning. how many sleep on your side?
8:42 am
>> yes. >> i do too. i actually said, oh, my gosh, you can see my sheets on my skin. what can we do to prevent that? >> side sleepers are prone to creases or sleep lines on their cheeks, on their chest as well. silk satin pillowcases can be very helpful and also they make these silicone pads you can wear them on your chest on your decolletage to help smooth out lines at night while sleeping. >> sunscreen a must. >> sunscreen, most important thing to do but now new studies are showing probiotic supplements can also protect your skin from the sun. >> all right. thank you so much, dr. bowe. much appreciated. we're going to head over now to ginger. >> all right and we're talking rare events al good morning i'm "abc 7 news" meteorologist mike nicco. fog is going to start lifting high clouds replacing it and

infinity pools and gourmet dining. i even tried my hand at making a breakfast crepe. right in the middle. pineapple. >> pretty. >> that is a crepe. as far as this particular resort, what separates it from some of the other ones that you run? >> i think that the location, within the development, it's not just quality o f the beach but it's right next to the golf course, the fact that it's gated and so private and very relaxing. >> the activities here endless. first up, yoga in the sand. later, some beach soccer. >> yes. >> reporter: and then i hit the turquoise blue water. >> all inclusive and believe one step above in experience. >> five minutes away is a place called scape park where we'll have ourselves an outdoor adventure. i meet up with my tour guide, angel, and new friends for a
