this morning. first, the fallout from the president is not backing down as democrats prepare to vote to officially condemn his comments. we're covering all the angles this morning. cecilia vega starts us off at the white house. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: not only is the president not backing down he is re-upping his attacks to those four american congresswomen. his message is crystal clear -- if you don't like it here, leave. the four democratic congresswomen at the center of a political firestorm this morning are firing back. >> this is the agenda of white nationalists. whether it is happening in chat rooms or it's happening on national tv and now it's reached the white house garden. >> reporter: the group united against the president and his co back where they came from. >> sadly, this is not the first nor will it be the last time we hear disgusting bigoted language from the president. >> reporter: all all american citizens, three of them born in the united states.
7:03 am
congresswoman ilhan omar, a somali refugee, has lived in this country since she was 12 years old and in the wake of his attack, she turned it back on the president. >> it is time for us to stop allowing this president to make a mockery out of our constitution. it's time for us to impeach this president. >> reporter: but president trump is not backing down either. at the white house, he dug in. >> they hate our country. they hate it, i think, with a passion. as far as i'm concerned, if you hate our country, if you're not happy here, you can leave. that's what i said in a tweet which i guess some people think is controversial. a lot of people love it, by the way. a lot of people love it. >> reporter: among those who love it, white nationalists who are now praising the president's tweets, but president trump said he doesn't mind. >> does it concern you that many people saw that tweet as racist and that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point? >> it doesn't concern me because
7:04 am
many people agree with me. >> reporter: the congresswomen accusing the president of trying to distract from the issues facing the country. >> this is a distraction and we should not take the bait. >> reporter: congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez offering a stark message to the next generation. >> i want to tell children across this country that no matter what the president says, this country belongs to you, and it belongs to everyone. >> reporter: so this firestorm is not likely to die any time soon. the president heads to north carolina on wednesday for a campaign rally. he clearly plans to make this controversy part of his argument to say that democrats are attacking his base on this one and one campaign aide tells us that the president's strategy is to point out that many democrats say terrible things about this country and, george, we can very much expect this one to be part of this race for 2020.
7:05 am
>> yeah, the president wants us to keep on going and pretty distinct contrast to how the administration dealt with inside the president's comments after charlottesville. this time, it appears at least that the president's team seems to have embraced these racist remarks as an effective political tactic. >> reporter: well, here's what i can tell you. publicly or privately i'm not talking to anyone here in this white house in this administration who will offer a forceful defense of what the president said but no one is willing to go on the record and say that these are racist and that tells you a lot also. there was very much a sense here yesterday that the president wanted to get out in front of this one. you can see from this "washington post" picture his talking points that he brought with him out to the white house lawn. on those talking points, he said that this -- and i should say this was an event about made in america, the president came out there prepared to address these in these tweets, he wanted to stress that the women have a record of saying anti-semitic and anti-american things. you can see that there on that picture, george. >> okay, cecilia, thanks very much. let's bring in our senior congressional correspondent mary
7:06 am
bruce for more on this. mary, we know house speaker nancy pelosi going to put a resolution on the floor today to condemn the president's remarks. >> reporter: george, house democrats are trying to send a very clear message here. they do plan to vote tonight on this resolution that, quote, strongly condemns president trump's racist comments, saying they have, quote, legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new americans and people of color. now, this is largely a symbolic move and while republicans -- some say the democrats here are simply playing politics, democrats say they feel the need to send that strong message and they are trying to get republicans to go on the record here to force them to say where they stand on the president's remarks. >> republicans have not wanted to speak out on this at all. >> reporter: george, we have reached to every single republican in congress and so far the majority of them still are not commenting and those who are are offering a pretty muted response. just a handful of republicans here have been willing to condemn the president's remarks, even fewer are calling them racist. tim scott, the party's only african-american in the senate, called them unacceptable and racially offensive.
7:07 am
mitt romney says they are deruivdaer mcconnl, the top republan in the senate, george, still has not said a word about the president's remarks. now, that is expected to change at his press conference here this afternoon. show how farhirepublican party has now lined up behthey >> it is his party. mary bruce, thanks very much. robin. george, as we heard, white nationalists are praising the president. chief justice correspondent pierre thomas has more on that. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: robin, good morning. today, there's evidence that sinister organizations are embracing the president's comments and trying to use them to energize their movement. the anti-defamation league tracks their movement and they have identified a number of leaders in these hate groups who were very animated on social media about the president telling these four women of color to leave the country. one such leader was thrilled by the president's tweet saying, quote, this is the kind of white nationalism we elected for.
7:08 am
all this as fbi officials tell us that since october there's been a 30% increase in terror cases involving people who advocate for the supremacy of the white race, robin. >> many keeping an eye on that. turning to immigration, we know that the trump administration is issuing a new rule that could -- in place that would effectively end asylum claims for a vast number of migrants arriving to the u.s. from mexico? >> reporter: that's right, it tells immigrants coming from central america that they must seek asylum in at least one country as they travel north before they can apply for asylum here in the u.s. expect another legal fight over this one, robin. >> thank you. amy. we're going to turn to that slow-moving storm, barry, causing problems as it heads north and this morning, we're also watching extreme heat on the way from the plains to the midwest to the east coast. ginger is tracking it all. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, amy. a lot to cover this morning. we begin with pictures out of louisiana. now we know that there's been almost two feet of rain that has fallen, more than 23 inches. you can see the result there,
7:09 am
just neighborhoods fully underwater. that's with the tail of this system. barry still moving north. the center now up in missouri and you can see the tail with a flash flood emergency. nashville, arkansas, has had eight inches of rain already. highways are covered in water this morning and we have flash flood warnings all the way up and watches up to illinois and even paducah, kentucky. keep an eye on the water there in the middle of the country but watch this. the jet stream is high and that's going to allow heat to build anywhere from los angeles where it's very hot to chicago where you could see your hottest stretch of 100 plus in seven years. look at the feels-like. 106 on thursday. kalamazoo, michigan, 100. 100, birmingham. washington, d.c., could see the hottest stretch they've had in three years, and we're going to keep it. look it, through saturday is when the core of this heat settles in, philadelphia, 106, new york city, on saturday could feel like 109 degrees. this after the blackout of last weekend, con ed is worried that this will be affecting a lot of people's air and electricity so please take it down a degree or
7:10 am
two, guys. >> will do. ginger, thank you. now to that massive fire sparking evacuations at a music festival overseas. 10,000 concertgoers forced to flee the flames in croatia at one of the most popular hip-hop shows in the world. diane macedo has those details for us. good morning, diane. >> reporter: robin, good morning. that fire broke out outside the fresh island festival in croatia. it's the biggest hip-hop beach festival in europe. cell phone video shows concertgoers running from the beach as flames light up the sky behind them. but getting all those people back to their hotels was extra hard because as the festival tweeted they had to shut down the road to town and wouldn't let the buses through. concertgoers instead were sent to a parking area but thankfully fire officials say that fire is now under control. the roads are open, everyone is safe and nobody was even injured, robin. >> great to hear that. but what about the festival? what happens now? >> the organizers tweeted that they'll update everyone as soon as possible.
7:11 am
tyga was among those set to perform yesterday. organizers are hoping that the show can go on. they want to make sure it's safe. the other big question is what caused this fire. officials don't know yet, but an investigation is under way. >> good to hear. diane, thank you. >> a scary scene. we move to that dramatic bail hearing for jeffrey epstein where he came face-to-face with two women accusing him of sex trafficking. they pleaded with the judge to deny bail, keep epstein behind bars and tom llamas has details. >> reporter: a judge says he will deliver his final decision on thursday whether jeffrey epstein gets bail but some stunning moments inside of court. two accusers, as you mentioned, facing off with epstein as prosecutors revealed new information, some of which rocked the courtroom. disgraced financier jeffrey epstein may be spending more time behind bars. his legal team arguing the multimillionaire who has pleaded not guilty is not a flight risk. but in court, prosecutors responding with a bombshell.
7:12 am
they say when federal agents safe piles of cash, dozens of diamonds and an expired foreign passport with epstein's picture but a different name and a stated residence in saudi arabia. the defense pressing on, stating epstein's wealth is not a reason to keep him locked up, citing ponzi king bernie madoff and former enron ceo jeff skillings as high-profile megarich defendants getting bail. but the judge pointed out this case is different, allowing two of epstein's alleged victims to testify in court. courtney wild saying she was sexually abused when she was 14 and that he's, quote, a scary person to have walking the streets. >> it's about your voice being heard, it's about people being held accountable for their actions, you know, justice being served and doing it for yourself. >> reporter: annork.
7:13 am
he then paid for her to travel to new mexico where on his sprawling esta >> these were girls who were procured, transported across state lines. this was as commercial a sex trafficking operation as you can imagine. >> reporter: now, one of epstein's biggest clients for years was the ceo of elle brands which owns victoria's secret, and bath and body works, billionaire les wexner sent this internal memo to employees, quote, when mr. epstein was my personal money manager, he was involved in many aspects of my financial life. but let me assure you that i was never aware of the illegal activity charged in the indictment. >> we learn more about mr. epstein's personal life. he was not a billionaire but a wealthy man. >> this was sealed -- this was unsealed yesterday so we're getting a closer look at how much he's worth but this financial form was described as cursory because it lacked so much detail. interesting points, he's worth
7:14 am
more than $500 million. this according to him. some points of reference, he has more than $56 million cash on hand. nearly 200 million invested with hedge funds and one of his islands -- remember, he has two, but one of his islands, little saint james, has a value of $63 million. >> what a dramatic moment in the courtroom when that passport is revealed. hard to imagine he's getting bail after you see that. >> the courtroom and the overflow courtroom were both stunned. you could hear like, whoa, like nobody could believe when prosecutors revealed that. it also shows prosecutors have a couple aces up their sleeves that they have not revealed yet. >> more to come. tom llamas, thanks very much. amy? now to protests erupting in puerto rico. thousands taking to the streets calling for their embattled governor to resign as he faces accusations of corruption. police firing tear gas and pepper spray at the crowd. the protest came hours after hundreds of pages of a private chat were leaked showing the governor making profane and sexist comments. this also comes amid growing frustration over the government's handling of hurricane maria. the governor, however, says he will not resign.
7:15 am
>> very tense times there. going to turn now to a big morning for entertainment. the emmy nominations are today and the final season of "game of thrones" expected to get plenty of nods. already has amy's nod. chris connelly is in l.a. with a preview for us. good morning, chris. >> reporter: good morning, robin. you know, the sheer volume of shows in this era of peak tv means that standing out is harder than ever. still, look for a flock of buzzed about newcomers to join those familiar performers and shows when the emmy nominations are announced today. its end of season storytelling swerve didn't delight everyone, but even so, past winner "game of thrones" should rack up a best drama series nomination for its blood-drenched farewell with peter dinklage, emilia clarke and kit harington among those in the mix for acting nods. peabody award winner "pose" could earn its first nomination. >> we're about to go mainstream.
7:16 am
>> reporter: last year's winner, "the marvelous mrs. maisel," likely to get another bite of the apple along with the final season of "veep." star phoebe waller-bridge likely to stand alongside moms allison janney and emmy o.g. julia louis-dreyfus as best comedy actress. >> the chinese are ready to fix this whole damn election. >> reporter: best comedy actor, returning champ bill hader from "barry" may vie against don cheadle from "black monday" and anthony anderson of "black-ish." >> i'm proud of you and your new summer job as a twitter nerd. >> reporter: can sandra oh from "killing eve" win best actress? laura linney from "ozark" wasn't mentioned. here's a knife fight with haunting "chernobyl." ava duvernay's instant sensation "when they see us" and the dazzling "fosse verdon" all eligible. one name that no one has heard yet, that of a host for the
7:17 am
emmys, leading to speculation the television academy may take a page from the oscar script and just do without. and remember that "the handmaid's tale," "stranger things" and "big little lies" not eligible for series nominations this year, because they each debuted their new seasons after the end of may. a few guest performances from "handmaid's tale" could grab a nom or two. >> which categories which we may see new faces do you think? >> i think the drama categories are wide open. you have all those shows that aren't up this year, "the crown," the americans" and that opens it up for shows like "pose" or "succession." we'll see what happens. it should be fun. >> it always is. it always is with you, chris. we're following a lot of stories this morning. coming up next, this mother who went missing while hiking was lost in the wilderness for days. she will tell her story on "gma" saying she escaped a man with a knife and also tells us how her dog helped keep her alive. and the search for the gator
7:18 am
that's putting chicago on edge. first let's go back to ginger. >> seems wrong, doesn't it? okay, so let's go ahead and start with something that is so normal for this time of year in minnesota, and that would be severe weather. there was actually a tornado reported and then this damage in belle plaine, minnesota. that was likely from winds but they're going to do the survey today. you can look for more of that action out in the plains, anywhere from rapid city to pierre, scott's bluff included today for damaging wind. just wanted to note before the heat comes what's left of barry and a front, a lot of rain, two to four inches in connecticut, rhode island and, of course, new york. your local weather in 30 seconds. thanks for starting your

7:31 am
we're following. house democrats calling for a vote today on a resolution to condemn president trump's racist comments directed at members of congress telling them to go back to their countries. the president is not backing down saying many people agree with him. and a major heat wave is moving in from the plains to the midwest and the northeast. 13 states from texas to new jersey are under heat watches and advisories right now. temperatures could top 100 degrees. and take a look at this wild sight in the water. wow. a huge pod of dolphins spotted gliding through the waves off the coast of southern california. i love this. the person who shot the video said they seemed, quote, super happy and you could feel the energy. on this tuesday. >> that was a cali person saying that, totally. totes. we're going to move on now to that remarkable survival story. sheryl powell was found alive in a ravine. amy is going to speak to her in a moment. but first, let's go to will carr who is on the scene where she went missing in bishop, california. good morning, will. >> reporter: and good morning, george.
7:32 am
this morning you can still see that missing persons poster with sheryl powell's name on it but she is back with her family and she's grateful to be alive. you're looking at four bright smiles after four desperate days searching for a california mother lost in the mountains. we were there when sheryl powell's family got the good news. >> they found her? >> they found her alive. >> they found sheryl alive? oh, my god. >> reporter: that moment can only be described as pure joy. >> this is a miracle. i can't imagine this. this is a miracle of miracles. >> reporter: powell and her dog vanished from a remote camp site on friday in california's eastern sierras. her husband went to move their car. when he got back, powell was gone. her family says a man with a knife threatened her. so she ran for safety and got lost. for days powell, an experienced hiker, and her dog survived in the rugged terrain without any
7:33 am
supplies. >> she found water and she ate a cactus, you know, the inner fruit of it. >> reporter: using thermal imaging from the air and dogs on the ground search crews combed the dangerous terrain. on monday rescuers first found miley, then a short time later they found sheryl. back together this morning, the powell family is embracing what they say is the happiest day of their lives. i have to say it is so uplifting inspiring to see a story with a positive outcome with that family reuniting. as for the suspect, authorities say this is still an open investigation. amy. >> will, thank you. sheryl, her husband joseph and her children, farrah and greg join us now. thanks for being with us. i want to say we're so happy you're alive and well. tell us how you're doing this morning. >> doing really well. just thankful to be alive and back with my family. >> oh, i'm sure they are very thankful to have you with them
7:34 am
there as well. can you tell us what happened, sheryl? i know you said you saw a man with a knife and took a quick break with your dog. tell us what happened. >> so i really hadn't planned to be gone for more than a few minutes. i told my husband i'd be back in ten. he was parking the car, getting us set up -- getting ready to set us up for the camping trip that we were going to take and hadn't been real familiar with the area that we were camping in. i thought, i wanted to take a look around with my dog and miley, my dog and i went off together and never quite made it back as soon as i thought i was going to. >> no one can even really imagine what that must have been like for those four days but you were afraid for your life at a moment with that man and the knife. can you tell me what you saw? i know that police are investigating what you told them. but can you give us a sense of what that moment was like? >> all of a sudden some guy pops out from behind a tree or something. he had been observing me and it was scary. i just was really very nervous
7:35 am
about the fact that he was threatening to do my dog harm and, you know, just if we made noise, if we yelled out that he was going to use it on us and i tried to be compliant until i had the chance to run and i took off with my dog and we just ran in a different direction than i knew my husband was because the guy was between me and my husband so i went the other way. >> and then you realized you were lost. >> exactly. so i had gone really very fast for me, i don't usually hike that fast but i do hike a lot and so i didn't feel like my legs weren't steady but i just realized i wasn't sure where i was because i had been running out of fear. when i did realize that i was in another canyon, i ended up in a completely other canyon than my family was, i knew how horrible it must be for them. >> joseph, i know that you went immediately searching for sheryl for your wife when you realized she wasn't nearby.
7:36 am
tell me what that search was like and how you were feeling as you eventually had to call in police. >> i started yelling for her. it would be atypical for her not to be there when i'm pulling in the spot. i wasn't too concerned right away and then i started screaming her name and after about five or ten minutes i realized something was seriously wrong. i didn't think she had been attempted for a sexual assault. i didn't know that had gone on at this point but i was thinking something must have happened. she fell somewhere nearby so i started crisscrossing the wilderness behind the camp area making die y-- diagonals. i spent roughly about 45 minutes thoroughly searching that time where she could have gist appeared to. finally after 45 minutes i realized i was in a complete panic and knew i had to essentially summon emergency services so it was absolutely terrifying. it was no way to describe this -- drop your wife off, five minutes later she's completely gone and no words to describe
7:37 am
the horror i went through looking for her for those 45 minutes. >> and then that turned into four days and i want to ask your children, sheryl, because i know that they were worried about their mom the entire time, and farrah, i know that your mom is an experienced hiker and you knew that she was a tough woman, i'm sure, but how concerned were you about her safety? >> i mean, i was really concerned. every day that went on got harder and harder. initially we were like my mom is going to be okay. she is really experienced. the longer that search and rescue and the dogs and we weren't finding anything, the more we felt like there was foul play involved and the more concerned we got. >> greg, tell me about the moment when you found out your mom had survived and she was being rescued. >> so, just before that we had found out about miley and then so it was just a glimmer of hope right there. it had already been like four days almost fully without any clues so that was the first moment and then less than two hours later we heard that news
7:38 am
and we all just, you know, just jumped in a circle screaming together it was just amazing. >> how is miley doing? >> she's doing great. i mean she really helped keep me going. i had someone else to care for, somebody who needed me and so my focus left me. it was to take care of her and to get back to them. so i was, you know, cut up and scratched up a bit but, you know, it was to keep her warm, to keep her safe and she helped me warm. >> also in a strange twist of fate miley actually potentially saved her life. because at one point, when my wife could no longer take care of her, somehow miley escaped the restraint which we have no idea and she was found and if she wasn't found, they would not look in that area more for my wife, so it's strange and beautiful how that worked out that miley was potentially the savior here. >> search and rescue heard miley barking. >> miley is the hero.
7:39 am

life, love and loss." thanks for being with us. it's hard to believe it's been 20 years since that fateful day. why do you think people are still so fascinated with john f. kennedy jr.'s life? >> well, i think there are two reason, one, obviously because it was cut short, you know, so soon and i think that there's always been the hope of what could have been. >> so speaking to that, i mean you knew him so well. what do you think he would have wanted his legacy to be? >> i think his legacy was "george" magazine. he really believed in, you know, the nonpartisan aspect of it and as we look today, there is a perception that there really isn't a nonpartisan way to get information about politics. >> information about politics, a out h td aboutrge" was a for governor. he didn't go much beyond that but he did say that how many mayors become presidents,
8:25 am
though. i guess it was in the back of his mind definitely. >> that makes a lot of sense and, you know, how do you hope people remember him most? i mean obviously there's his family, there's "george" magazine but what do you want people to know about him. >> i think the thing that people should know, remember about him and know about him is that he had this tremendous amount of charisma and power and he carried himself with such grace and such dignity and he never abused the power that he had. >> and speaking to today's political climate and the place we're in, you know, i'm sure it's painful but in a way almost hopeful to imagine what he could have contributed. have you thought about that? >>. yeah, and we actually talk amongst ourselves on the staff about bringing some form of "george" back to life in some way, whether it be a podcast or digitally to keep his legacy going. >> what did he want for this country? >> oh, he wanted great things for this country, but john saw
8:26 am
america idealism of america as a thing but as the people in it. >> and what do you think, what do you think he would say the way -- was he a sage? de have advice? did he have passion nall feelings about we should or shouldn't be doing. >> he did but john was very much in the moment. his motto was nothing is as good or as bad as it seems in the moment and this too shall pass so john was, you know, an optimist but a realist and he lived in the moment. >> well, that's something certainly to think about on this day. rosemarie terenzio, thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you. thanks for having me. and we'll be right back.

8:42 am
tips but they're tailored to people who have declining vision and so --ll a pop. >> let's not do anything ugly this morning. of course. >> a pop of color really helps people living with amd. >> one thing that's important is contrast and color and everybody has seen it a million times. the idea you don't want to have a bunch of neutrals floating in a space. if you have somebody suffering from declining vision or know somebody who is, add contrast and color to the space because it helps them to find where things are. >> absolutely. >> so that is definitely number one. >> thumb two, i love this tip too also about texture. tips you give in normal design. >> universal design tips but actually super helpful and i noted that you put down this contra contrasting -- >> yes. >> again, really easy to do.
8:43 am
but you want people to know where things end and things begin so tape on the border of a rug, tape on stairs is really great. you can get kind of crazy with it and do like fun colors if you want to. i've even taped like the edges of lamp 145ids so when trying to find the button on a lamp your hand knows where to go. >> speaking of lighting yet another way. >> so this is, again, like lara, another design principle. but in old sort of traditional design what was considered good manners was that anyone who had a seat in the room had their own light source so if they wanted to read a book they had a little -- so this creates symmetry, a pair of floor lamps blanketing a sofa and great for people with declining vision. >> i love that. [ applause ] last tip and again, universal design, organization is everything. >> i'm like a crazy virgo. so i like the idea -- i don't think anyone's house should be
8:44 am
messy ever but if you have someone with declining vision, look what this looked like before. that makes me crazy. that makes me want to wash my hair. so this -- what it should look like is this and, you know, keep like things with like. [ applause ] especially -- i don't want to search for anything anyway in a drawer in a linen closet but for people with declining vision, again, with what amd, it's also really important that they know exactly where to find the battery for their remote if their remote runs out. >> simple containers. >> totally. all these tips are actually on my home and sight kit.com so people can go on, classic design tips but ways people can make their lives easier or make their loved one's lives easier. >> whether you're living with amd or someone you know or you just want to have great design like nate berkus then check out that website. tell us one more time. >> i'm sorry.
