7:04 am
trump saying this to one demonstrator. >> are you from mexico? are you from mexico? right smack in the middle of my punch line. >> reporter: this just one day after trump dodged a question about getting support from david duke, a former kkk grand wizard. >> honestly i don't know david duke. i don't believe i've ever met him. >> reporter: but trump had disavowed him in the past. >> i disavow, okay. >> reporter: trump now trying to fend off attacks from all sides. senator marco rubio nearly losing his voice campaigning hard hitting trump even harder. >> and we are not going to allow a con artist to take control of the party of lincoln and reagan. >> reporter: and senator ted cruz looking for a big hometown victory in texas. >> super tuesday i believe is going to play an important part helping winnow the field and taking us more and more towards a two-man race. >> reporter: someone who plans on being there till the end, melania trump. >> i follow it from "a" to "z" and i know exactly what's going on.
7:05 am
race is getting nasty but has thick skin and her husband's late-night tweeting doesn't bother her. >> he's an adult. he knows the consequences. >> reporter: now melania says she doesn't always agree with her husband especially when it come to his language. >> the cnn interview continues to make waves. you have seen that tweet from mitt romney, he called your response disqualifying and disgusting. your response. >> first of all, mitt romney is a failed candidate, should have won the race and he failed miserably. he was a terrible candidate for the republicans. secondly, david duke was disavowed. i disavowed him on friday. i disavowed him right after that because i thought if there was any question and you take a look at twitter, almost immediately after, on twitter and facebook, they were disavowed again. i disavowed him every time i speak to somebody virtually and they just keep it going.
7:06 am
your twitter account. we never looked at facebook. i said take a look at facebook. it was totally disavowed. >> so, are you prepared right now to make a clear and unequivocal statement renouncing the support of all white supremacists? >> of course, i am. of course, i am. there's nobody that's done so much for equality as i have. you take a look at palm beach florida, i built a club, totally open to everybody that frankly sets a new standard in clubs and a new standard in palm beach and i've gotten great credit for it. that is totally open to everybody. so, of course, i am. >> how worried are you may split the party as you're doing better and better in the primaries, you have more and more republican voices say they won't support you and #nevertrump right now. prominent republicans like j.c. watts, mel martinez, the senator ben sass. are you worried you may make it harder to defeat the democrats in november? >> no, i think it's just the
7:07 am
i've had tremendous calls from tremendous establishment people and nonestablishment people and the party is going to get bigger. if you look at any one of the primaries that i won, whether you go to new hampshire or south carolina or nevada, you take a look at how many people have come out. we're just absolutely the numbers that double and triple years ago, we're getting we're getting independents we're getting a lot of people coming in and i will tell you as very well also. they are very worried about it. we have tremendous numbers of people coming in and the republican party is growing larger and if it didn't it has no chance. it'll be like mitt romney four years ago, it has no chance of winning. we're getting people into the party that never had before. >> let me interrupt you. that brand-new cnn poll shows hillary clinton defeating you relatively handily by eight points but losing to marco rubio and ted cruz. >> well, they're not going to get the nomination. i haven't even focused on hillary clinton yet and i can
7:08 am
hillary clinton doesn't want to run against is me and i have that on good knowledge. we have not focused -- i had one little skirmish with hillary three weeks ago and you saw what happened with that. i will defeat hillary and we're going to take a lot of democrats and a lot of independents away and we're going to possibly win places like michigan, new york, states that are not even in consideration and, by the way, these aren't things that have been taken advantage of in the poll. i will beat hillary clinton much more easily than anybody else. >> "the new york times" had a look inside the democrats' playbook this morning. it says the plan they're going major fronts. portray you as a heartless businessman, broadcast the degrading comments you made against women and highlight your brash and explosive temper. how will you respond? >> well, we'll respond the way we have to respond. again. our country has gotten soft and weak. by everybody, george, if you look at china, if you look at japan, if you look at mexico, if
7:09 am
country we do business with, we lose. we've become -- we've become a debtor nation. we owe $19 trillion. we are going to make america great again. that's what my whole campaign is. we're going to make great deals and strengthen the military and take care of our vets. we'll do it right, george. >> mr. trump, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. >> and, george, as you know super tuesday just as critical for the democratic race. hillary clinton and bernie sanders battling for crucial votes across the country. clinton looking for a sweep down south. abc's cecilia vega is in arlington, virginia, with the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, robin, good morning to you. just me and a few friends hanging out this morning, right? [ cheers and applause ] we're at a diner here some of these people have voted. most promised me they're heading to the polls right after this. we got a pretty mixed group and this is the most important day of this primary so far.
7:10 am
a super tuesday win. all of you. >> reporter: clinton swinging through this swing state feeling confident. tuesday prediction? >> just happy to be in virginia. every single vote. >> reporter: in the final hours before voting begins she's taking on one opponent after the >> america is and always has been great. [ cheers and applause ] what we need to do together is make america whole again. >> reporter: her husband piling on too. >> so they say all we need to do is build a lot of walls. she said, no, we don't. what we need to do is tear down barriers and build ladders of opportunity that everybody can climb. >> reporter: sanders hoping a northern push is his path to victory. >> your state led the american
7:11 am
[ cheers and applause ] and now it's time for massachusetts to lead the political revolution! [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: taking on not just hillary but his rival across the aisle. >> bing, bing, bing. >> reporter: who he hopes to survive long enough to face come november. >> we will defeat donald trump because we know that love trumps all. >> reporter: bernie sanders has raised some serious cash, more than $42 million in february alone for perspective that was more than hillary clinton raised in the entire month of jbio has raised so far this entire election, robin. a couple of bernie sanders supporters here in the crowd with me this morning. >> we have some out in times square, as well. after all the ad, all the rallies, still a lot of undecided voters out there, right, cecilia? >> reporter: there are, robin, about 30% nationally and a number of people here in this diner with me are undecided including this entire table right here.
7:12 am
you were telling me you're split between two candidates right now, who are they? >> hillary clinton and john kasich. >> reporter: two different parties. that shows you what we're looking at today. >> this is interesting. we have asked this question in the last few weeks and every time we ask an undecided voter those are the two names that come up like that. it's interesting. all right, cecilia, thank you very much. george. >> i'm here with our political team -- matthew dowd, donna brazile and jon karl. a lot to talk about. you'll be here tonight as well. you heard donald trump confident about the nomination and said ted cruz and marco rubio not going to get it and their back is really up against the wall. >> no question. the danger for them super tuesday becomes trump tuesday. if he sweeps tonight, he goes from becoming the likely or the front-runner to becoming the likely republican nominee. what cruz and rubio have to do is find somewhere to beat him tonight and in the states he wins, he's going to win most of enough to keep getting delegates. >> and, of course, ted cruz still ahead in texas. matt dowd, you saw mr. trump dismiss the idea of dividing the republican party but the voices
7:13 am
getting louder and louder. some for him but many against him as well. >> well, there's a huge argument going on within the establishment should they endorse or coalesce but the real division is between the leaders of the party and voters of the party. the voters are going one direction and the leaders want to go another. another thing that's interesting about tonight, bernie sanders will win more states than marco rubio, ted cruz and john kasich combined tonight. >> is this threat of a third party, a conservative party, a break from the republican party real? >> i think it's real. for the last month or a month and a half ago i said plan a is not working. after tonight it's certainly not working so have to go to plan b and the only thing plan b is conservative or republican party that runs not as the current gop. >> meanwhile, donna, democrats are drawing up their battle plans as well, "the new york times" article laying out the case against donald trump. the first time democrats seem to be taking it seriously. how worried are they? >> look, democrats are worried about enthusiasm. they are worried about making
7:14 am
their voters. there is no question that we have to focus on the fall election but right now today is a big day for hillary clinton. she has to bank on the fact that a quarter of the delegates will be people of color. beyond that, can she break into bernie's stronghold in the northeast, massachusetts, that's the key today for her. >> okay, donna brazile, jon karl, matthew dowd, we'll see you tonight. abc news will be out in force all throughout the super tuesday. i'll be here with our whole political team usa for a prime time special at 10:00 eastern plus special editions of "world news tonight" and "gma" tomorrow morning. >> going to be a long day for you, thank you. new trouble for the "anthem of the seas" cruise ship. a powerful storm is cutting its trip short as passengers onboard blattle a norovirus outbreak. abc's gio benitez is here with the latest. here we go again, gio. >> reporter: just weeks ago the ship was tossed around like a toy in the water. the cruise line now hoping to prevent a repeat. this morning, the "anthem of the

facing yet another problem, less than a month after being caught in hurricane-force winds, royal caribbean's one-year-old cruise ship cutting its trip from the eastern caribbean two days short and heading back to new jersey, the company says hoping to beat a severe storm friday. the company also revealing the crew is battling the norovirus. ten guests per day reporting symptoms. >> you actually had to walk by the medical facility to get off the boat and the medical facility was jam-packed standing room only literally just full of people. and that's when we kind of went, whoa, this is not good. >> reporter: the company tweeting monday the norovirus cases didn't affect the decision to return. >> three people that i'm traveling with have shown some symptoms, so it's definitely going around. >> reporter: just three weeks ago the same ship was hit with massive 30-foot waves and 120-mile-per-hour winds. 4500 passengers onboard during the weather crisis. and in this latest case royal caribbean says the norovirus is affecting a small percentage of
7:16 am
that is not why it's ending the cruise early but no doubt passengers are still worried. >> no doubt about that. thank you. now amy is joining us with other top stories and a legal victory for apple. >> that's right, robin. a federal judge in new york ruled the fbi cannot force apple to unlock an iphone at the center of a drug case. the judge saying it would betray our constitutional heritage. but the ruling has no affect on apple's battle with the government over the san bernardino shooter's iphone. government officials are warning utility companies that the nation's power grid could be vulnerable to a sophisticated cyberattack like the one that caused a recent blackout in ukraine. u.s. investigators have now confirmed hackers compromised the system six months about of that outage. the malware was so destructive operations are still not back to normal. an ohio teenager is due in court today facing attempted murder charges. investigators say the 14-year-old opened fire in the cafeteria at madison high school hitting two students, police
7:17 am
motive. and some dramatic video of a tornado hitting this hardware store in louisiana last week. a fedex driver tried to take shelter inside. the door was locked so she hid behind a soda machine. it fell over. look at that. my goodness, when the tornado destroyed the entire store, incredibly she was not injured. she walked away without a scratch. and finally, an explanation for your constant craving for junk food. you're not getting enough sleep. scientific evidence now shows there is a link between lack of sleep and the munchies. it's because of a chemical in your brain which builds up when you don't get enough rest. that chemical makes your body crave rewards. for most of us that's fatty or salty foods. by the way, it is the same chemical in the brain that makes marijuana smokers get the munchies. >> that's a nice little twist. >> for your tuesday. >> munchies. you had us at munchies. >> yesterday morning.
7:18 am
sleep. >> thank you, amy. let's go over to rob right now. the severe weather today could affect the voting. >> that's true, pass the bacon but because of the lack of sleep. look at this. just southwest of oklahoma city. they don't call it the thunder for nothing. this is inside oklahoma city where hail and wind driving some severe weather there and that batch of severe weather is going to be rolling across some states that are in the hunt here as far as primary and super tuesdays. arkansas in through tennessee, alabama and northern parts of georgia, strong winds, maybe even a tornado as this front, little cluster of thunderstorms gets into more heated action. it's not quite as severe as what we saw last week but till going to be disruptive. a three-hour to five-hour period where you'll have to keep an eye on the weather if you're heading to the polls or maybe plan your day around that. getting snow from chicago south of -- parts of michigan. another two to, say, four inches

7:32 am
abc's eva pilgrim has the latest. joins us from nashville. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this morning erin andrews returns to the stand for more questioning. her side expected to rest after she finishes. erin andrews breaking down in court. >> you know your body. when i saw it for two seconds and i was like, oh, my god and i shut it down. >> reporter: reliving the moment she first saw a naked video of herself online. >> dad, i'm naked all over the internet and i don't know what it is. >> reporter: the popular sports caster and co-host of "dancing with the stars" suing the man who secretly recorded that video michael david barrett as well as the owners and managers of this nashville marriott for $75 million. claiming the hotel made it easy for him to film her in the nude. the hotel maintains barrett is a criminal who tricked them into gaining access. on monday barrett's testimony was played in court.
7:33 am
and i called the operator and asked can i have erin andrews' room. they connected me so then i knew what room she was in. >> reporter: saying he was having money problems when he came up with a plan, record video of andrews naked in her hotel room on his cell phone through a peephole and sell it for money. >> waited until the shower was turned off. pulled the plug out and waited for the opportunity. >> reporter: barrett pleaded guilty to stalking in 2010 and was sentenced to 30 months in prison. his video has been viewed nearly 17 million times. >> i feel so ashamed. i'm so embarrassed. >> reporter: andrews' mother paula described consoling her daughter. >> it's not your fault. you're a victim. you've been -- you've been assaulted. there was no calming her down. >> reporter: andrews admitting that her life now is far from normal saying she's filled with anxiety, grief, humiliation and horror.
7:34 am
this could have been stopped. the nashville marriott could have just called me. it could have stopped. >> reporter: now erin andrews wasn't the only woman michael barrett recorded in a hotel and posted at least ten more videos online. robin. >> at least ten more. eva, thank you very much. joining us now abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams in the studio with us and from atlanta, nancy grace, host of "nancy grace" on hln. let's discuss e rchlt r erin's how will that play with the jury, do you think? >> well, i believe the jury is going to empathize with her. i don't believe that they're going to buy into a theory that she's some opportunist peddling a naked video as many people have thought that she was in on this. i disagree with that. there are seven women on this jury.
7:35 am
genuine and the fact that her parents are there in court, i think, is a secret weapon for the plaintiff. i think that the jury will side with her and if they don't believe her, they'll definitely believe her mother. >> i don't think anyone is claiming now that she was out peddling this video. i mean, that had been a concern of hers early on, people were speculating about it. >> that's right. >> no one in that courtroom is now saying that she was out there peddling the video. the question here and why her testimony is so powerful and important goes to damages, right, because she hasn't really suffered professionally. when you're talking about damages in the case like this, typically you'll see someone say, look, i haven't been able to get another job. i've lost all of these opportunities. in this case she can't argue that really because her career has continued to soar and so what she has to say is these are emotional damages. look at how much i have suffered as a result of what he did to me and that's incredibly powerful. >> and the man is behind bars
7:36 am
we saw him, the video, nancy grace, grace, in the courtroom. he walked up to the front desk and asked for her is what some thought. he went to a house phone. how will his testimony -- how will that perhaps help the defense? >> well, i think that what they're trying to argue, the defense will ultimately argue is that the hotel really had nothing to do with it. that it's his fault. a criminal intraconvenienting ing ing that they wouldn't know anything about but his testimony via videotape and she left for that is very powerful. it shows anyone could get in. he would get in and go to a house phone and say, hey, i want to get in this room but he actually specific asked apparently to be near erin andrews. that is against all hotel protocol. >> here's the key to what may be the negligence. he goes into the restaurant, he asks for erin andrews' room.
7:37 am
shows up on the screen, he then goes up because he now knows what the room number is, sees that the room next door is being made up. goes back downstairs and asks for that room. so, he doesn't go and say, i hey, i want to be next to erin andrews but the negligence as the case may be may be in the fact that the hotel had this system where you could literally call from the restaurant, call to ask for anyone's room and the person's room number shows up on the screen. >> archaic phone system. >> you know what else, dan, it's really interesting, apparently was out in the hallway for almost five minutes and unscrewed the peephole and basically held a cell phone up and looked in and being in the room next to her he could hear the shower and he knew when she was getting out of the shower naked. thing off. >> she was the victim. the question is just going to be >> and how much. >> and who should pay. much. i appreciate it. coming up here, johnny manziel, you see him caught on camera partying in a new video

8:12 am
someone like me. but only if you have a brain. we are back with an abc news exclusive. "modern family" star ariel winter is opening up about the procedure that changed her life and the troubling childhood she overcame. i sat down with her and she spoke candidly about having breast reduction surgery, her legal battle with her mom and
8:13 am
>> i'm not, but that's okay. i'm the smart one. >> reporter: we fell in love with her as alex dunphy. >> yes, i'll an an amazonian carnivorous fish. >> reporter: on "modern family." >> he's beating me in words with friends. how is that possible? >> reporter: over seven season s s we've watched ariel winter grow up on screen from an 11-year-old girl to an 18-year-old woman. you were thrust into the limelight at a very young age. were you prepared for what came with that? >> i don't think anyone is prepared to be so young and having everybody's eyes on you especially now, you know, as i've gone through some of my really -- some really big moments in my life being in front of the spotlight has been pretty difficult because you have everybody's opinions and so i think it was a little shocking for me in the beginning. >> reporter: part of that shock was from the public scrutiny, she experienced. >> walking down the red carpet and seeing the photos afterward and having every headline be
8:14 am
my talent, not about what i was really there for or anything i wanted to be put out there and i thought that was really disappointing. >> reporter: and just last year she decided to undergo breast reduction surgery going from a 32f to a 32d. why did you decide ultimately to get breast reduction surgery? >> i had wanted to get a breast reduction since i developed because i was in excruciating pain and i couldn't sit up straight. it was always super uncomfortable to sleep, uncomfortable to sit, it was uncomfortable to walk and i dressing rooms because i couldn't find a bathing suit would fit me. did it for myself. it was the best change i ever made in my life. >> and you wore a stunning gown to the s.a.g. awards and you were not afraid to show your scars. >> i'm not. it really astounded me when people said to put my i think that's just so
8:15 am
>> scars are cool. i have them too. >> we have stories from them. >> reporter: she's hoping her experience will help other girls and wishes for a day where women in hollywood are no longer scrutinized for their looks. but despite her success as an actress, she said it's a path she might never have chosen. >> i think that when i was born, it was kind of already decided what i was expected to be, and so i was kind of pushed into the industry. that's not to say i don't love it and it's not my passion now. i do love it, but i don't know if i hadn't had my own run to be able to decide what i wanted to do, if i would have. >> did you have what most people would say is a stage mom? >> she most definitely was. this is what she wanted me to do and pushed very hard for that and kind of put that in the forefront of her mind instead of what i wanted and needed and that was definitely hard but i don't think that was the only issue. >> reporter: winter went through several years of legal battles with her mom over allegations she emotionally and physically abused her and ultimately became emancipated from her mother.
8:16 am
your mom at this point? >> i don't. we haven't spoken in 3 1/2 years. it's really hard to have that kind of drama in your life and to be going through that court situation and have an open court case and have everybody look at it because it's already hard enough for abuse victims but it's harder in the public eye when everybody has an opinion. >> you refer to yourself as an abuse victim. what happened to you? >> well, the thing is it's really hard to talk about and the reason i haven't talked about it thus far is because it was really painful for me to watch my mom go on news outlets and go on "dr. phil" and kind of spread things everywhere when it's really just private family business, but at the end of the day i feel like for me i probably should take the high road and do something that i would have wished she would have done for me. >> reporter: and for now she's closing that chapter and doing normal 18-year-old things. she's applying to colleges with plans to become a social justice lawyer. >> i've had a lot of life
8:17 am
really helped me grow into the person i am today, and i think it's something that needed to happen for me to see what i needed to do in my future, and it kind of shaped what i wanted to be in my future. >> and as for ariel's relationship with her dad, she says it was, quote, turbulent in her younger years but she adds that he's been nothing but supportive and loving and she's grateful. what a wise, wonderful, open 18-year-old. see the wisdom she's gained. >> she's so grounded and so talented. >> absolutely. i'm so happy for her and happy she has her dad. >> yes and her sister too. her sister's been a huge help to her. robin, over to you. >> thank you for that. now to a health alert about the new pill promising to jump-start women's love lives, if you will. a new report is calling it a fail, and some doctors say, well, it virtually is ineffective and potentially dangerous. abc news jen ashton is here. i love it when you're here. i can just see you
8:18 am
>> thank you, robin. >> this particular pill, relatively new on the market. what does the report say? >> any time there is a study about women and sex you know people are going to be talking about it. this was a study that came out in jama, one of the most reputable journals that really wanted to look at all the available evidence on flibanserin or addyi, this medication. they asked did these studies use good quality methods and did the benefits outweigh the risks of this medication? that's always important. what they found benefitswise, women taking this medication every single day had 0.5 more satisfying sexual encounters per month. they had a significantly higher rate of side effects and overall the studies produced were found to be of low quality evidence. >> what about the side effects? >> this pill is not for everyone. can it help some women, yes, but side effects versus placebo or sugar pill, significant. dizziness four times greater, sleepiness, nausea, fatigue. there is an interaction with alcohol and hold on to
8:19 am
looking at this medication and how it interacts with alcohol, most of them done in men. >> what? >> right, right. >> okay. >> we have a lot of work to do. you know there are a lot of women that are watching us this morning and they are sexual desire. what are your recommendations? well-being and health so i would say doctors need to be asking about it. it, please have the courage to bring it up and speak with your doctor about it. look for possible physical, psychological or hormonal causes and, if possible, talk to a marriage counselor or a sex therapist. these professionals are well underutilized in my opinion. >> back to this particular pill because there was a lot of hope from women and thought, okay, maybe this is it. >> right. >> what is your bottom line about this? >> this is an example of gender discrimination. we shouldn't just be talking about a treatment for female low libido almost 20 years after viagra was brought to market. so, is it a right step, yes.
8:20 am
it needs to be looked at in gay women, in postmenopausal women. they deserve good sex too and i think the person who finds the cure to the low libido in women will probably win the nobel prize in medicine. >> especially and women who have gone through treatment and i hear from women all the time who have gone through various types of breast cancer treatment and other types of diseases and things like that. >> very important. >> we did hear from the maker of addyi, and they said in part, "in all three phase trials a significant increase was seen in the number of sexually satisfying events in premenopausal women." they added that the analysis omits context and downplays the importance of increased sexually satisfying events. i'm glad that we can have this kind of conversation. >> so important, robin. >> jen, thank you. >> george. >> thanks, guys. we switch to "the bachelor." ben usual leashed a bombschellas night saying he's in love with not one but two women. >> and engaged.
8:21 am
that story has a lot of reaction and the woman he sent home is speaking out and kayna whitworth has the story. >> reporter: bachelor ben is bending the rules. >> i've known i'm in love with you for awhile as well. >> i love you too. >> reporter: surprising everyone with his venture in uncharted territory. >> what? >> i do. >> reporter: ben admit ing ting to not one but two women that he's head over heels in love. >> do not tell two women at the same time you love them. it's not going to end well. >> no. "the bachelor" studios in los angeles unable to contain their surprise. oh, what did we just see? everyone, everyone in this room just freaked out. >> he just told lauren that he loves her. >> reporter: but one woman sent home heartbroken. >> i am in love with two women here. >> uh-huh. >> and i just couldn't say it back to you. >> reporter: 24-year-old caila opening up during their date in paradise. >> i'm in love with you. tells her it's over.
8:22 am
>> that sounds like a line. >> reporter: caila telling us about that heart-wrenching good-bye. do you have any regrets from all of this? >> i have no regrets whatsoever. i fell in love, and it really does hurt me that he didn't. but i can't help that. >> reporter: when i sat down with bachelor ben, he had big news. >> i am engaged. >> you're engaged. >> i can say that. i haven't said that in an interview yet. >> reporter: revealing to "good morning america" first he and his fiancee are happier than ever. >> you don't know how much stress and weight to carry for so long because -- >> i'm glad you can share that with "good morning america." >> "good morning america," i am engaged, yes, finally. >> reporter: for "good morning america," kayna whitworth, abc news, los angeles. >> we just don't know to whom. with two women. engaged to one. >> we'll find out. >> that equals good tv.
