7:02 am
we want to get right to that latest on the government shutdown. absolute stalemate right now. president trump is going to head to the border to make his case. want to show you the scene in mcallen, texas, where the president is going to tour this afternoon. >> the president is headed there as the government shutdown enters day 20, which is one day away from matching the longest shutdown on record. >> yeah, and what happens next could depend on a very small group of republicans and whether they decide to go against the president. our senior national correspondent mary bruce has more on that from capitol hill. mary, despite the president's insistence that his party is unified over the shutdown this morning, there are some cracks in the ranks? >> reporter: the president is ed a nant he has his party's support but this morning there are signs of the gop support is splintering, at least four moderate republicans are uneasy suggesting they want to re-open the government with or without the funding for the president's wall and brought some of their concerns to the president but it is clear the
7:03 am
president isn't budging. white house adviser jared kushner to see if they can come up with some kind of compromise to get bipartisan support. the senate mitch mcconnell is insisting he will not bring up any measure to fund the government unless he is certain the president is on board. >> democrats ramping up the pressure on mcconnell. there seems to be no end in sight and the president, it seems, is leaning closer to declaring this national emergency now. >> reporter: there is one more card the president could play. gress and uslare that national n e em military funds to build his border wall. cecilia, we know that the white house is looking into this and the legal ramifications of this. here on the hill this is highly divisive idea. even some of the president's top allies they're not even certain it's legal. and it would almost certainly be challenged in the courts but, cecilia, it is a way that the
7:04 am
president would claim a political win while coming up with a way to re-open the government. >> division in the administration as well. okay, mary, thanks. >> let's bring that to jon karl, our chief white house correspondent. there is opposition in republican ranks to this idea of declaring a national emergency but the president clearly considering it. one of the big questions is, what kind of a precedent it would set? >> reporter: george, good morning. some conservatives worried about this. i'm told white house lawyers have been looking at this for months. before this current impasse. meanwhile, the president is heading to the mexican border where he hopes to make a dramatic appeal for his border wall. with talks broken down he is making a trip to the mexican border, the first trip there since he surveyed prototypes of his promised wall nearly a year ago. the president's trip follows a dramatic scene at the white house where he walked out on talks with democratic
7:05 am
leaders unwilling to give him any taxpayer money for his border wall. the president's meeting with congressional leaders lasted just 15 minutes. >> he sort of slammed the table and when leader pelosi said she didn't agree with the wall, he just walked out and said we have nothing to discuss. >> reporter: the president on twitter called it a total waste of time. >> i think the president made his position very clear today, that there will be no deal without a wall. >> reporter: meanwhile, some 800,000 federal workers are caught in the cross fire. most of them to go without the paycheck they're due to receive tomorrow. we asked the president whether he'd consider signing bills to d ith nd w democrats over border security. >> jon, you think i should just sign? >> i'm saying that if you sign that these workers can start getting paid. the government can start -- >> you would do that if you were in my position? you would do that? >> i'm not in your position. i'm asking you -- >> i'm asking you, would you do that if you were in my position?
7:06 am
if you would do that, you should never be in this position because you'd never get anything done. good-bye, everybody. thank you very much. thank you. >> thank you, mr. president. >> reporter: the president will be briefed by border patrol agents not far from the rio grande river. meanwhile, there are no further talks scheduled here in washington between the president and democrats. >> yeah, complete breakdown but we are glad you're in your position, jon. thank you. and president trump will be in mcallen, texas, this afternoon minutes from the busiest area for border crossings. matt gutman has been on the ground there speaking with those officers who patrol that border but, matt, not everyone there wants this wall. >> reporter: that's right, cecilia. we spent the day with the border patrol chief who will brief the president today. he took us to what he said is the busiest spot along the entirety of the u.s./mexican
7:07 am
border, a spot where he says hundreds of migrants and asylum seekers pour in every day, a process that seemed routine on both sides. >> we make sure they're seen by medical professionals and give them some dry clothes, give them a meal, if they need to bathe. >> reporter: with u.s. agencies overwhelmed here in the rio grande valley that means these migrants will likely be released into the u.s. with a notice to appear in court at some point in the future. >> is that what the president calls catch and release? >> if there was detention space for a mother and a child at a family residential center, we will make that call first but if there's not a detention space, they will put on an ankle bracelet or some sort of monitoring device and they will ultimately be released. >> reporter: raul ortiz is the acting chief of the rio grande sector. he's the man who will brief the president today. the smugglers delivering migrants in raft after raft. carrying that raft back up. the border patrol helping these women and children up the steep embankment. so many surrendering themselves, we struggled to keep up.
7:08 am
>> chief, so, in the last maybe six minutes that we've been here, i don't know how many you counted but it's like, what, 15? >> about 15 individuals. >> they don't come with anything. these people don't have bags. >> the smugglers will take everything from them. >> reporter: nearly 700 asylum seekers come through this area every day. a record 25,000 families crossed from mexico just last month, something the president is calling a humanitarian crisis. it took little crystal and her mother a month to get here from honduras 1500 miles away. she tells me she got to bring only one thing. that barbie. these people have been traveling for months to get here. >> we get our border security mission and then you got the humanitarian mission which this would fall into that humanitarian mission category. >> reporter: cecilia, the border patrol told us it's going to ask for steel fencing in the rio grande, somethingt local
7:09 am
politicians here have told us they don't want and don't actually need. now, it's important to note that that border patrol chief and all border patrol agents are now not being paid. in fact, the border patrol union is now suing the federal government. cecilia. >> they indeed are. thank you, matt. michael. >> thank you, cecilia. now to that winter weather that is on the move. snow causing spinouts and temperatures plunging in the midwest. well, now, the northeast is also bracing for a deep freeze. ginger is tracking it all. good morning, ginger. >> good morning to you, michael. check this out. you can barely see on some of the roads in northeastern ohio. and right here in western new york we're up to and already six plus inches of snow has fallen in some of the lake-effect snow bands so there's still warnings and advisories up for that. still some wind gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour in parts of the appalachians and mid-atlantic, but you see the winter storm watch back for st. louis? that's the new storm everybody is talking about for the weekend. it really gets going tomorrow in the plains and then really fills in for kansas city to st. louis, central illinois and central indiana on saturday. you could end up with 3 inches to 6 inches of snow especially
7:10 am
closer to that rain/know line and then sunday it settles in for the mid-atlantic. northern virginia through maryland, george, a sure bet. >> yeah, it's going to be some weekend. thank you, ginger. we're going to move on now to fallout for r. kelly from those sexual misconduct allegations. there you see him overnight at a club in chicago and now lady gaga is taking a stand, pulling the song they sang together from streaming platforms. linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: lady gaga says while she can't take back the decision to work with kelly, she can go forward and continue to support victims of sexual assault. she says she is now vowing to never work with him again and describes her own sexual assault unrelated to kelly twisting her thinking. overnight, lady gaga, the latest star to speak out against r&b star r. kelly, saying in a statement posted on her twitter account, i stand behind these women 1,000%, believe them, know they are suffering and in pain and feel strongly that their voices should be heard and taken seriously, adding an apology for working with kelly on their hit collaboration "do what you want
7:11 am
with my body." ♪ do what you want with my body ♪ >> reporter: gaga also announcing that she intends to remove the 2013 song from itunes and other streaming sites, all sparked by the explosive lifetime documentary series "surviving r. kelly." which showcases several women claiming sexual assault by the singer, allegations he has consistently denied. >> no matter how demeaning it felt or seemed you had to always just play along with it. >> reporter: new calls pouring into law enforcement after an illinois prosecutor asked for come forward >> ouroo a you. i can't guarantee outcomes but i also can't guarantee that we can
7:12 am
do an investigation without that >> reporter: editorials calling for radio stations to mute r. kelly. a hashtag that's been posted more than 30,000 times in the last seven days. according to "the chicago sun-times," just in the last 24 hours, at least two women have brought new allegations of inappropriate conduct to illinois authorities, and more potential legal woes as a management team for r. kelly's ex-wife tells us kelly failed to show up in child support court yesterday and now owes more than $120,000, claiming he has not paid child support since june when andrea kelly started speaking out about his alleged abuse. >> a lot more to come. okay, linsey, thanks very much. we turn to the new developments in the urgent search for a missing baby in texas. the fbi is now joining the case of what police are calling a staged kidnapping caught on surveillance camera. marcus moore is in san antonio with the latest. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: good morning. this is just a bizarre case. san antonio police are urging the public to help them find 8-month-old king jay davila
7:13 am
who's been missing since friday and this morning san antonio police say they are investigating an alleged cover-up. watch closely and you will see what san antonio, texas, police are calling a staged kidnapping. a woman casually walking up to a car left running and unattended at a gas station. she gets in and drives off. this morning, the fbi and police are desperately searching for 8-month-old king jay davila. investigators say they believe the baby's father, 34-year-old christopher davila, may have set the whole thing up. the baby's mother jasmine gonzalez was on the phone with davila last friday when she says he started yelling his car had been stolen. >> he freaked out. he was panicking. i was like, you know what, hang up and call the cops. i'm going to call the cops, too, so i can push the issue and they can find my son. they said they sent two policemen there. >> reporter: but this morning, authorities say this case is not what it seems. and police do not believe the child was even in the car and adding to the mystery, police say davila's cousin is the woman in the video and is seen in another piece of footage walking
7:14 am
down a street carrying a car seat. >> we can say now without a doubt that this was not a car theft. this was not a kidnapping. this was a staged event. >> reporter: if investigators are right, the question now is, why and more importantly, where is little king jay? and police have searched davila's home and the neighborhood searching for any evidence and they have used dogs to search for any trace of this little boy who has been missing for nearly a week. cecilia. >> we certainly hope he is okay. marcus, thank you. two frightening close calls. first, take a look at this. dash cam video, a very lucky driver thankfully safe after a massive highway sign comes crashing down on her car. that's in melbourne, australia, completely demolished that car. yikes. amazingly the woman escaped with only minor injuries. an investigation is under way into how that sign collapsed. and that other close call we want to tell you about. a high-speed chase in hollywood overnight, a driver stealing a van and leading police on a dangerous run
7:15 am
knocking over traffic lights, barreling through intersections, crashing into other vehicles and narrowly missing pedestrians. our los angeles station kabc ught it om the chopper. the chase finally ends when the driver loses control of the van slamming into more parked cars before a man gets out the passenger side. he turns out to be the driver and is now in police custody. we turn to that major change coming for the oscars. looking like hollywood's biggest night will go without a solo host after kevin hart told michael right here on "gma" that he won't reconsider his decision to drop out. t.j. holmes here with the latest. >> good morning. this is one of hollywood's favorite annual guessing games, who will host the academy awards, and with the show coming up just next month, we finally may have an answer and the answer is not a name. the answer, george, is nobody. just over a month before the oscars and the academy still hasn't found a host. >> and now, please welcome your host --
7:16 am
>> reporter: but this morning it appears they stopped looking. "variety" reports the academy has decided to forgo filling one of the most high-profile gigs in show business. >> no a-lister wants to host the oscars at this point. there's nothing in it for them. >> reporter: kevin hart was set to follow in the footsteps of bob hope, billy crystal and ellen degeneres, but bowed out following controversy over years-old anti-gay tweets. in recent days it seemed like he could be brought back but he put and end to that speculation here on "gma." >> with all this being said and all this controversy and all the ways you addressed it, is there hope you would host the oscars this year? >> no. >> absolute no? >> yes, i'm not hosting the oscars this year. >> reporter: what would a host-free oscars look like? it hasn't happened in three decades. >> the last time there wasn't a host on the oscars was in 1989 and that show is remembered as
7:17 am
one of the biggest debacles in oscar history as it opened with a huge musical number including infamously rob lowe singing a song with snow white. >> oh, mr. lowe, i'm such a fan. ♪ >> reporter: now 30 years later, the search for a host is becoming fodder for other award shows. >> we are going to have some fun, give out some awards and one lucky audience member -- >> both: will host the oscars! >> let's go back just a couple years. oscars so white, last year was the lowest ratings in the history of the show. you go back now to the kevin hart debacle. remember, they announced the wrong winner for best picture. they announced the award for best popular movie and had to take it back. it's been a rough stretch for this show. they're still struggling. >> it's like being in a relationship. why are you bringing up all the old -- >> it's relevant if we're going to move forward, stra. i've been trying to go for years. this might be my year. >> whoopi said she would step in and save the day.

8:17 am
little world until monica turned to an older colleague, linda tripp, who tape recorded her without her knowledge and on those tapes, which you hear extensively tonight, it's chilling, in monica's own words is their story. love, heartbreak, betrayal and a constitutional crisis. >> monica had been sent to the pentagon with the president's promise that after the re-election she would return to the white house. the elections come and go, but monica lewinsky is not brought back. she becomes distraught and even a little frantic. >> it's too hard. >> i know. but if it's any consolation -- >> you have no idea how hurt i am that i'm not going back. >> i know. >> you have no idea. >> it's the worst. i the worst. i know that. >> you listen to these tapes, it is hard not to feel for her. you know, she's insecure. she doesn't understand the relationship. how could she?

extraordinary to me. i was full of idealism about washington, d.c. and here was the presidency, the congress, the supreme court, in fact, at the impeachment trial getting wrapped up in this story between bill clinton and monica lewinsky. and i remember coming onto the white house grounds which you do all the time, go through the gates, it's very impressive, i thought, you know what would be an appropriate punishment for bill clinton is, if we walked on to the white house grounds, the second floor window where the president lives were open and hillary was throwing all of his stuff out onto the lawn and he had to move out. i think the american people would have said, fine. we won't have an impeachment trial. >> we're looking forward to your special definitely.
