7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking right now, state of emergency. florida bracing for its first hurricane in more than a decade as tropical storm hermine strengthens overnight. fears of flooding and tornadoes along the gulf coast. and another hurricane madeline lashes hawaii with flooding, powerful winds and massive waves. breaking overnight, tale of two trumps, a fiery speech on immigration. >> you can call it whatever the hell you want. they're gone. >> doubling down on his promise to build a wall and making mexico pay for it. >> they don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for it. >> a sharp cry from his meeting earlier with mexico's president. >> spectacular, spectacular hardworking people. >> the clinton camp calling it his darkest yet. cruising to jail.
7:01 am
on the trip of a lifetime, posting selfies on the beach, in the jungle and on the water but police now say they were smuggling cocaine the entire time. anthony weiner under fire. child services now investigating after he sent that lewd selfie showing his 4-year-old son in the background. the estranged husband of hillary clinton's top aide in trouble. could he lose custody of their son? good morning, america. a little rain on the lens there this thursday morning. and boy, what a day for donald trump yesterday. there you see the diplomat shaking hands with the mexican president, calling him a friend, praising his country. no talk about mexico paying for that wall until last night there in arizona. quite a different tone. he fired up the crowd with those familiar lines and we're going to get into all that this morning and hear from hillary clinton's running mate tim kaine live. but first, george, we want to get to that hurricane warning for florida. the weather set to ruin the
7:02 am
east coast as tropical storm hermine strengthens. it could become the first hurricane to make landfall in florida in more than a decade. the state already facing flooding and ginger is here tracking all the latest for us. what a radar picture there, ginger. >> exactly. the satellite this morning, tropical storm hermine escalated quickly. just talking about it as a tropical depression but now maximum sustained winds of 60 plus miles an hour, it's strengthening and will speed up toward the north and east. hurricane watch down to just north of tampa. the main threat here, of course, heavy rain, five to ten inches. some places could get locally 15 inches. the timing is tonight, overnight tonight into early friday. then it sticks with us. this is what i want you to watch. through south carolina up to the east coast, the impacts could be through our holiday weekend. the storm surge, the rain and that's why we have our rob marciano right there in tampa this morning. rob. >> ginger, the center about hermine about 200 miles that
7:03 am
the question is, how strong will it be. in the past 24 hours western has been chaotic. all of western florida really getting hampmered by the outer bands. this morning, tropical storm hermine accelerating towards the florida coast. the outer bands already flooding the sunshine state making some roadways impassable. >> still about 4 1/2 inches of water inside the house. >> reporter: over 9 inches of rain falling in pinellas county. families trying desperately to stop the water from overtaking these apartments in largo. >> it's ridiculous. >> it came through the ceiling. >> reporter: at least seven from one family narrowly escaping after this tree fell on their home. >> there's a tree like in every room of the house. >> reporter: it's all hands-on deck at the sandbagging depot. this is the only solution, got to stop the water? >> what else can i do? >> reporter: coastal residents have been evacuated and schools and colleges closed today and tomorrow.
7:04 am
but the ground is certainly saturated. more rain and wind coming and storm surge as the wind picks up. and tampa certainly susceptible to that. the waters will rise potentially as a hurricane. more than 4,000 days since a hurricane hit this state. another area that has had a hurricane-free streak is hawaii but they got slammed with tropical storm madeline and abc's neal karlinsky is there right now. neal. >> reporter: rob, good morning. that's right. the surf heris they feel like they've dodged a bullet on this one. you can see the waves come in, but madeline seems to be passing through as a rough tropical storm and not the hurricane they feared but over the last 12 hours the rains has been at times torrential coming down sideways. as a result many roads have been flooded. there have been occasional power outages as well, schools throughout the big island here have been shut down. the port closed. but they do feel like they have
7:05 am
things over the next several hours when the sun comes up, ginger. >> neal, madeline gone but, of course, lester on the way so i wanted to showcase the timing here. once the big island is now on tropical storm warning that is now for lester which is going to come through the weekend and other islands for hawaii have to brace for some impact. if not just that high surf and rip currents. a lot are there through the holiday weekend. george. >> thank you, ginger. the race for the white house and donald trump's immigration two-step fiery speech in arizona last night hours after his more statesmanlike trip to meet with the mexican president, gaining ground on hillary clinton in some national polls and jon karl has the latest in mexico city. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. if you were expecting donald trump to soften his position on immigration, you would have been dead wrong. after sounding diplomatic here in mexico he went on to present as hard a line on the issue as he ever has. >> you can call it whatever the hell you want, they're gone. >> reporter: no more waffling, donald trump is once again saying everyone who came into this country illegally may be
7:06 am
>> anyone who has entered the united states illegally is subject to deportation. there will be no amnesty. >> reporter: once again, he talked about creating a deportation force. he even joked about deporting his opponent. >> i am going to create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in america who have evaded justice, just like hillary clinton has evaded justice, okay. >> reporter: and trump made it clear where he stands on one of the central promises of his campaign. >> mexico will pay for the wall. remember. >> reporter: it was a far cry from what we saw from trump earlier in the day when he made a surprise trip to mexico city and stood side by side with mexico's president enrique pena
7:07 am
>> it's been a tremendous honor and i call you a friend, thank you. >> reporter: what about that sticky issue of paying for the wall. and the wall, is it a nonstarter? is there any chance mexico pays for the wall? >> we did discuss the wall. we didn't discuss payment of the wall. that will be for a later date. this was a very preliminary meeting. >> reporter: here in mexico city, trump was measured and downright diplomatic. he even praised mexican immigrants. >> spectacular, spectacular hardworking people. >> reporter: but just five hours later, a different donald trump. >> zero tolerance for criminal aliens, zero, zero. >> reporter: a few hours after their meeting and after trump left mexico, mexico's president came out and said that he told trump directly that there's no way mexico will pay for the wall. but, george, i asked mexico's
7:08 am
he said nothing and he didn't disagree with him saying the issue didn't come up in their meeting. >> and he is facing a backlash in mexico over that. meanwhile, donald trump back on twitter again overnight and this morning talking about mexico. also talking about hillary clinton and hitting her a bit for her not going to mexico. >> reporter: hillary clinton didn't go to louisiana or mexico, she doesn't have the drive or stamina to make america great again. the clinton campaign is brushing this off saying you don't do away with a year's worth of insults by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. more now on hillary clinton and her campaign calling donald trump's speech in arizona his darkest yet. as clinton bashes trump for his trip to mexico saying it takes more than a photo-op to build relationships, her running mate tim kaine is standing by, but first abc's cecilia vega is on the campaign trail in columbus, ohio, with all the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning, amy, you're right.
7:09 am
back overnight, she tweeted donald trump just failed his first foreign test. diplomacy isn't as easy as it looks. hillary clinton's response to donald trump's big trip to mexico -- >> it's more than a photo-op. it takes consistency and reliability. >> reporter: clinton unleashing on him in ohio. >> it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours and then flying home again. >> reporter: and going after trump with this video on twitter. >> i'll use the word anchor baby. this is a country where we speak english. >> reporter: her supporters pouncing too. >> it reminded hispanics about how much resentment and fear and hostility he's created in this country over the past year. >> reporter: her campaign chairman saying trump didn't just choke, he got beat in the room and lied about it. writing, he doesn't have the courage to advocate for his
7:10 am
clinton back out on the campaign trail after a lucrative trip in the posh hamptons, where she raised more than $12 million. at parties filled with superstars like bon jovi and paul mccartney. and now, she's about to get an assist from some political powerhouses. president obama will be out campaigning for her at least a dozen times before election day in battleground states and vice president joe biden will be out there, too, twice a week starting today in ohio. >> okay, cecilia, thanks. let's hear now from her political partner, senator tim kaine. senator kaine, thanks for joining us again. >> you bet, george. >> let's start out with donald trump's day. we heard those comments from john podesta, the campaign chair for hillary clinton, but didn't donald trump gain some stature by appearing side by side with the mexican president? >> you know, george, i don't think so. i think it was kind of a diplomatic embarrassment. we'll get to his speech later
7:11 am
about we're going to build a wall and mexico will pay for it and he sits down and goes eyeball to eyeball with the president of mexico and what he forgets suddenly to bring it up, or he's too afraid to bring it up, or he chokes in the meeting, it's just kind of an indication that the guy talks out of both sides of his mouth and when he is given an opportunity to address his -- the central rationale of his entire campaign he doesn't do it. and that's not the kind of st who is going to be conducting bilateral discussions with the leaders of any nation. >> you say he's talking out of both sides of his mouth. yesterday, the republican party put out a video talking about hillary clinton's flip-flops on immigration. let's take a look. >> hillary clinton is pandering for political gain. hypocrisy at its worst. hillary clinton, you just can't trust her. >> and over the years she has moved towards more liberal positions on issues like the wall, on deportation, on benefits for undocumented
7:12 am
>> you know, george, that's not the way i look at it. there was an immigration reform effort done when hillary was a senator in 2006 when george bush was president. she was a strong supporter of comprehensive immigration reform in 2006. you remember that came up in the primaries as a key point of difference between her and bernie sanders and, as i've campaigned all across the country, especially in the latino community, they understand that hillary has been trying to do comprehensive immigration reform f years. this is not a new thing for her. there is a consistency to her position. and that's why she said, look, in the first 100 days we need to 30 years after the last reform, you know, build a comprehensive package that includes basically support for dreamers and include support for employers and a path for hardworking people to earn the ability to stay here as
7:13 am
those are the key pillars of the plan keeping families together, it's very different from the division and deportation nation strategy of donald trump. >> meanwhile, trump appears to be closing the gap in some of these national polls tightening. in our new poll shows secretary clinton is now as unpopular as donald trump. you see her at 59% unfavorable. he's at 60% unfavorable. how do you explain that and how do you fix it? >> well, look, this is going to be a tough race and i didn't have any illusions about it and hillary clinton does we have felt from the beginning that this would be tough. we -- going into the convention it was pretty much a dead heat seen since both conventions but it was pretty much a dead heat and we like what we've seen since both conventions but it's not a big lead and that means we've got to make our case every day. hillary, while donald was doing his high-profile talking messages on the border, she was at the american legion in ohio
7:14 am
veterans organization and we're going to have to make our case about the economy that works for everybody and that we're stronger as a nation if we build alliances rather than tear up alliances and build walls. >> finally, on a different subject, colin kaepernick, who has been having that protest, refusing to stand for the national anthem, expected to do it again tonight at a game that's supposed to be honoring military veterans as well. you're the father of a marine. what is your reaction to colin kaepernick? >> respect people's ability to act according to their conscience. i mean, i'd do it differently. i think if you really thought about issues, and about this country, you'd do it differently and when i heard him explain his rationale. it didn't really make that much sense to me but you have to respect people so i wouldn't presume to tell him what to do. >> senator kaine, thanks for joining us this morning. >> all right, thanks, george. >> amy. now to a major breakthrough in the battle against
7:15 am
the brain of toxic plaque buildup could slow the progression of the disease and give much needed hope to patients. our senior medical contributor dr. jen ashton joins us with more. explain just how this drug does what it's said to do. >> this is a type of immune therapy that goes on a seek and destroy mission to those amyloid plaques, those tangles in the brain that interfere with brain function. let me show you what i mean. take a look at this scan. i'm going to walk you through it. if you look at the top. p.e.t. scans of patients with alzheimer's. the left column is baseline, the right column is one year later, the red plaques represent the amyloid. increasing doses of this medication, you see the red disappears or dramatically goes down. here are the caveats with the study now. it's small. we need much bigger numbers. it was funded by the drugmaker
7:16 am
and most interestingly, there is controversy in the field of neurology, not every expert is convinced that these amyloid plaques are the main culprit in alzheimer's but cautious optimism. >> yeah, and certainly those images studying how soon could this be available? >> a couple years and come from a hefty price tag and it could cost patients thousands of dollars a year. >> thank you. >> thanks. we move on now to a new lead in the jogging murder mystery in new york. the nypd has released a sketch officials believe he could be a witness and could help them find the killer of karina vetrano. abc's eva pilgrim has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, police releasing this sketch of a man they believe may help them find the killer of 30-year-old new york jogger karina vetrano. karina went for a run on this familiar path in howard beach on august 2nd but never came home. her father eventually finding her body. >> we need to find this predator. >> reporter: police now releasing this sketch of a man spotted in the area by utility
7:17 am
investigators don't think he's the killer. despite a $300,000 reward, multiple dead-ends so far no arrests. officials hoping the possible witness and dna evidence found at the scene can give them some answers. >> we also have touched dna from her neck and as you know she was strangled and we also have dna from her fingernails, probably the strongest, we have from the same person. >> it is wrong to kill an innocent young woman. >> reporter: this morning, karina's family left with pictures and memories has a message for the person who took their loving daughter away. >> the world is against him. i'm coming for him. >> reporter: police say the man that they're looking to talk to should have stood out to anyone who saw him in this area that day. he was wearing a dark wool cap on what would have been a warm august day. amy. >> we hope they get answers soon. eva pilgrim, thank you.
7:18 am
headline about your smartphones. samsung delaying shipments amid reports of exploding batteries and that announcement sending their stock plummeting. abc's rebecca jarvis is here with the latest. >> good morning, amy. multiple consumers have now complained of explosions of their galaxy note 7 devices. take a look at this. some are sharing these pictures of their burnt-ut phones online and samsung said shipments are being delayed due to additional tests being conducted for product quality. there's no word on what caused the problems, but some say it could be an issue with using old usb cords to charge the devices. the news has wiped out about $7 billion of samsung's stock value and it comes at a time when we're about to hear about that new iphone from apple. so bad timing for them. >> sure is. big hit. okay, rebecca, thanks very much. let's go back to ginger. >> so important to note with hermine, tampa, florida, all this area, not the only ones included. the watches go all the way to north carolina. you could get more than a half

welcome back to "gma." you are looking at tropical storm hermine growing in the gulf. a state of emergency declared as florida now braces for what could be its first hurricane to make landfall in more than a decade. that storm will then track up the east coast bringing a washout for millions on this holiday weekend. >> oh, boy. also right now, donald trump making headlines again with that fiery speech on immigration overnight, doubling down on his promise to build a wall and make mexico pay for it just hours after meeting with mexico's president where he struck a more diplomatic tone. and gold medalist gabby douglas giving a health update. she is now out of the hospital after that scare saying she was suffering a complication from a mouth injury. and she's doing much better right now. >> we are glad to hear it. and this morning, as
7:31 am
for travel for the holiday, american airlines is out with a new ad. it is raising some eyebrows. basically saying that travelers may be to blame for problems when you're flying all those travel headaches not the airlines. we're going to have more on that. we'll see how it works out for them. but we begin with anthony weiner and more trouble for him. child services now investigating the former congressman after his latest round of sectixting. it included a photo showing his young son in the background and abc's mara schiavocampo is here with the latest. this, of course, is not the first time weiner has been caught texting inappropriate photos but it may be the most serious because it involves his child. now, just days after his wife announced their separation, an official investigation into his parenting. this morning, abc news has confirmed that new york city's administration for children's services is investigating anthony weiner's care for his 4-year-old son jared after this photo became public.
7:32 am
partners and also showing the former congressman's son. weiner allegedly even referring to the boy in a text message accompanying the picture writing, someone just climbed into my bed. in another series of texts, weiner allegedly describing his son as a, quote, chick magnet. this is the third time weiner's sexting has gone public. in 2011, the brash congressman was forced to resign after accidentally posting a lewd photo to his twitter account. >> i'm deeply sorry. >> reporter: he was caught again in 2013 during a new york city mayoral bid. the scandal unfolding in front of a documentary crew filming his comeback campaign. >> act like a normal campaign candidate's wife. >> i'm going to leave, leave a few minutes after i leave before you leave. >> don't worry. >> someone might think you're married to me. >> don't worry. >> reporter: now, weiner's wife
7:33 am
top aide, has announced her separation from her husband. now, a source close to weiner and abedin tells abc news that in their experience weiner is an excellent father. as for that investigation, acs does not comment on ongog investigations in order to protect the privacy of the children involved which, of course, is paramount. george. >> sure is. mara, thanks very much. let's talk to our senior legal consultant, sunny hostin here with us right now. i think we see that picture of the little boy. i think it's disgusting. doesn't meet the standard of neglect. >> i don't think it meets the standard of neglect yet, but certainly shows such a stunning lack of judgment that if cps did not begin an investigation and something else happened that was neglectful we would be pointing the finger at them. i think they're going to be investigating the home. they're going to be investigating his relationship with the child and they're looking for evidence of child abuse, child porn, maltreatment, neglect, and i think that is the right thing to do in this case because aren't we all shocked that he would have that kind of judgment to include his child in a sexting picture? this is someone for the same
7:34 am
seat in 2011, lost his mayoral bid and now has lost his marriage from the same behavior. there's a real problem here. >> could he lose his son over this? >> i think it's very, very possible. we don't know what the result of the investigation can be or will be, but the bottom line is, any judge looking at a custody decision is going to consider this kind of behavior. rightfully so. what is most important in these cases, what is most paramount as mara said is what is in the best interest of the child. is it in the best interest of a child to be in a sexting photo with their father? absolutely not. that's not even a close call. >> criminal charges? >> i don't think so. i don't think -- i think that's a stretch but, again, we don't know what the result of the investigation would be. >> okay, we'll be watching. sunny hostin, thanks very much. now to those two globe-trotting women accused of smuggling more than $20 million worth of cocaine aboard a luxury cruise ship, the pair posting
7:35 am
vacation on social media before getting busted in australia. abc's gio benitez is here with all the details. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning. this was a massive international law enforcement operation, even the u.s. department of homeland security was tracking this ship. all to catch these women on board. from tahiti to bermuda, to peru, the globetrotting bikini glad clad beauties seemed to be on the vacation of a lifetime, at they posted on instagram. with breathtaking backdrop, a tattoo in french polynesia and a quick jungle selfie, but police say hidden off instagram, in the luggage aboard their cruise ship, 209 pounds of cocaine worth a staggering $22 million. and now, 22-year-old melina roberge and 28-year-old isabelle lagace are behind bars in an australian jail charged with importing a commercial quantity of cocaine. >> this is the biggest seizure of narcotics through a passenger stream.
7:36 am
boarded the extravagant cruise ship "the sea princess" two months ago, starting in the uk and visiting 11 countries, many in south america including colombia and ecuador, until its final destination in sydney, australia, where police arrested the two and a 63-year-old man. >> the seizure of these drugs has disrupted the supply of cocaine to the streets of sydney and beyond. >> reporter: their parents and co-workers telling local canadian media, they're in shock. lagace's father reportedly saying she never mentioned a man would be joining them. but australian police suggesting they were not as shocked. somehow figuring out that a massive amount of cocaine was about to run aground. and police haven't revealed how they knew the drugs were on board or when they were boarded. the cruise liner telling us it is cooperating with authorities and it has launched an internal investigation, of course, the two women will remain in jail until they face an australian judge in october. and if convicted, they face life
7:37 am
>> wow. >> what a wild story. >> incredible. >> gio, thank you. >> thank you, gio. coming up on our big board, that series of bizarre clown sightings. that have a community on edge. big warning for parents this morning. and google is getting into the carpool business. how could it change your morning commute? plus, the end of valedictorians. that's the question on the table right now. one school district considering getting rid of the title and our insiders join us in two minutes to talk about it all. insiders join us in two minutes to talk about it all. e alzheimer's association is going to make it happen by funding scientific breakthroughs, advancing public policy, and providing local support to those living with the disease and their caregivers. but we won't get there without you.

at a boarding school he used to run. widespread cases of physical and sexual abuse. students were also stripped down and forced to wear nothing but a sheet. indisputable evidence that congressional candidate supported the abusive practices and even bragged about them. they're there for a reason. because they're hopeless. because they're hopeless. a long history of abuse, the students may never recover. dccc is responsible for the content of this advertising. welcome back. it's time now for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's top stories. t.j. holmes at the table. we'll talk to him in just a bit. but first, let's begin with the story right out of the stephen king novel, another in a series of alleged clown sightings in south carolina. witnesses describing two people dressed in costumes at an apartment's complex playground chased away by a concerned resident.
7:40 am
just ten days. former fbi agent brad garrett is joining us. and, brad, full disclosure here. i am completely and totally creeped out by clowns, always have been, always will be, and the reports that the clowns are standing under street lamps waving and trying to lure people away with money. have you seen anything like this before? >> well, i have seen situations where people try to lure kids at playgrounds, sex offenders attracted to kids, for example, however, keep in mind i have a 6-year-old. i watch cartoons with him. there are clowns in a very positive light so there might be an angle for them as far as luring kids. >> it wouldn't have worked with me, i'm just saying. >> there have been sightings like this in other parts of the country, and sometimes the residents want to take matters into their own hands but how does the fbi get a handle on something like this and how seriously do they take it? >> very serious. keep in mind that you're going to track these guys probably through other clowns in the community.
7:41 am
also, who sells makeup, wigs and the outfits for clowns? it's got to be small so my guess is, those are two viable leads. >> two viable leads and the clown community feels targeted. okay, brad garrett, thanks very much. >> sorry to all the good clowns out there, sorry. we're going to move on now to a move from google that could transform rides to work. according to a report in "the wall street journal" says it will introduce car pool service on their waze app and becky worley has heading in the same direction, the riders pay a much lower fare. >> what if finding a carpool was as easy as getting an uber. that's what this trial program in san francisco is trying to do. first, the commuter with a car, they punch their route into waze, that's the app from google that helps with mapping and traffic, and then carpoolers are alerted and can ask to join them. what's cool, waze even handles sharing the cost of gas, they let riders pay about 50 cents a
7:42 am
>> i know this is a different business model than uber. but are we still looking at a google versus uber competition here? >> amy, i think everybody wants a piece of uber's business and this might snag a few riders but i talked to sources really deep inside waze and they say it's not what it's about. at least right now. for one, the rate is too cheap to incentivize drivers, $10 for a 20-mile ride. nobody is making a living off that and the folks at waze say this is about making commutes easier. there's some altruism here. i think we all despise traffic, anything at all to make it better, i am so in. >> i know this is just starting. hard to think it's going to work in realtime. you know, the drivers out there on the road detours to pick somebody up. >> safety issues. are these drivers vetted? i think there are a lot of questions still. >> this is a beta program. both of those are excellent questions that will no doubt be answered as they sort of iterate and get this program ready to market.
7:43 am
now to what could be the beginning of the end for a longstanding high school tradition naming that class valedictorian. an indiana school district considering a proposal that would remove the honorary title and replacing it with a more inclusive system of student recognition. abc's t.j. holmes is here. so -- >> like this? >> no, i don't. i think people should be rewarded for being incredible. why does this high school want to stop this. the everybody gets a trophy mentality? >> some say it puts undo pressure on them and kids are not making decisions based on future and college but trying to get the gpa up and they'll vote on the school board next week. if it's the case they will do away with valedictorians but, before we give them too much of a hard time, this has been a growing trend around the country. >> is it really? >> a lot of schools are getting rid of the valedictorians. >> i'm kind of with amy. i do understand the idea if kids are manipulating their
7:44 am
classes, and not themselves in any way kind of defeats the purpose. >> it's not just about the easy classes but proliferation of ap and honor courses and can inflate your gpa. if we're in the same senior class, that would have been fun, right? senior class and i get all as, she gets all as, and she manipulated the system and she has a 4.7, i have a 4.0. why is her achievement any better than mine? >> the classes were harder. >> all these kids are smart. >> isn't competition healthy, i don't know, what do you guys think, becky, brad? >> well. i bet they're saying -- >> i didn't want to hear what they had to say anyway. so, let me continue, a school last year, a high school with 30 valedictorians in california. 117 valedictorians in one graduating class because they just said forget the system, anybody with a 4.0 and above you're a valedictorian. >> 117 4.0s, good for that class. >> but that waters down the system.
7:45 am
you're shooting for and that one valedictorian. >> do we have the mikes up for becky and brad? >> hello. can anyone hear us, america i think celebrating winners makes other people want to be winners, i'm sticking with it. >> agreed. brad? >> absolutely. we need competition. it's a healthy thing and i think kids today don't get enough of it. >> we are all old school. >> but we're not running school boards. >> all right, t.j., becky, brad, thanks to all of you. and coming up next, that new ad putting the blame for bad passengers. does it go too far? we're back in two minutes. far? back in two minutes. americans are buying more and more of everything online. and so many businesses rely on the united states postal service to get it there. because when you ship with us, your business becomes our business. that's why we make more ecommerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country.

7:48 am
airlines. they're the ones who pack us like sardines and they're the ones that sell us soggy tuna sandwiches. if that sounds like you, this might make you mad. long tsa lines, short tempers. >> if there's no flight, just say there's no flight. >> reporter: shrinking legroom, expanding baggage fees. >> don't give me this [ bleep ]. >> reporter: but now, in this brand spanking new ad american airlines is telling us what ke walk faster in airports and they know their mood contributes to the mood of the flight. they pack like they're doing a jigsaw. are they blaming us for the pain we feel when flying? buck up, cupcake, it's you, not us. comments under the ad on youtube include americans' marketing team needs to be fired. this is so backwards. it's kind of "plane, trains, automobiles." >> look, i've had just about of you. now, take your seat.
7:49 am
>> reporter: for the record, american airlines ranks lowest in the country for on-time arrivals and only average and climbing for customer satisfaction. there is a lot of videos of passengers gone wild that does kind of back the american airlines' plea for passengers to always ask before they raise or lower the window shade. i mean, this guy had to be duct taped to his seat. but still, remember, next time you hear a baby scream, apparently you're just a bad passenger because you don't always bring noise-cancelling headphones. now, american says they're not trying to tell us how to behave they're trying to start a conversation. okay, so, a couple of weeks ago, middle seat, my video monitor was broken, i was next to the bathroom, the toilet overflowed. am i bad passenger? maybe that's just payback for my poor armrest etiquette. american also says that apparently you're supposed to give the person in the middle both armrests. that's the law, george and amy.

8:15 am
>> it's motivating and it holds you accountable. how much more success are we talking about? >> some of them 60% to 0% or more success compared to the standard approaches, so in person counseling, that kind of thing, i know -- >> it's in your hand all the time and it reminds you what you should and should not be doing. >> my steps at the end of the day, i go, that's all i walked and so it does that, accountability, the information, the ability to give feedback in realtime. this is not just the future, it'she any health or wellness provider who is not incorporating technology way behind the eight ball. >> all apps not created equal. what should you be looking for when choosing an app? >> first, look for the -- >> mine is free. >> some are free. some are expensive. try to research the reviews. because, again, there's a lot of customer and user reviews on there and ask yourself is it easy to use. if it's not i don't care how great it's not going to be successful.
8:16 am
that is the key. >> and is it annoying because i actually turn my settings off because i don't want it to remind me too many times. >> my voice on the phone will be annoying, amy, keep running. >> have you run today? dr. ashton will be taking your questions throughout the morning on facebook and twitter. thank you very much. coming up next, "gma investigates" wedding edition, how much do you really feed to spend to keep your gown clean. we have a big experiment next.

8:21 am
$1,000. janet fraidy, a fabric expert says the cost of specialty cleaning catches brides unaware. >> they're totally attached to the emotion of how it looks for that day. >> reporter: meanwhile, local cleaners can charge as little as $200 for a gown. with so many price points how is a bride to choose? we brought three identical gowns and had janet create similar stains, first makeup. >> if i saw that on my wedding dress, i'd cry. then red grass. looking like our bride slid into second base. then chocolate. oh, it hurts. we took one dress to a high-end cleaner, $900. we shipped one dress to an online cleaner, there are a few options, we chose heritage gowns, they charged 300, and we took another to a local franchise that charged 250. once the dresses were cleaned we took them back to janet not telling her which dress went to which cleaner.
8:22 am
stains all gone but the makeup stain was another story. the dress we sent to the expensive cleaner had a residual stain. on the local dry clean dress -- >> that wasn't even a stain we put on there. >> we didn't have a blue stain. >> of our three which came out cleanest -- >> "c." no evidence of makeup or any of the other stains. >> "c" is the one we sent to the $300 online cleaner. that's the expensive dress, a little residue. that's the chain dress, quite a the online $300 cleaning, it looks really good. the national cleaners association says experience matters and they add we advise searching online reviews and calling cleaners to ask about their methods, training and experience. the high-end cleaner says their price reflects environmental-friendly cleaning methods and hand wash and press each item. will she say yes to a clean dress? as for debra she sent her dress
8:23 am
okay, you can look. >> oh, yes, looks as good as when i bought it. >> i am wearing a wedding dress for a reason and it has to do with dress preservation. high-end dry cleaners will provide nice perks. we got gloves and a fancy muslin bag and they'll also offer preservation at a premium. sometimes hundreds of dollars. you can buy an acid-free box and acid-free tissue paper online and you can preserve it yourself. i got these for around $50 which brings me back to the dress. we have a little game. >> we do. okay, we have an audience here and they are here for a reason. we're going to play a little game. we want you to try and guess how old the dress is that becky is wearing, is it 10 years old, 20 years old or 75 years old? so you all go stand under the graphic you think it is. >> that was quick. >> oh, this is what you thought. okay.
8:24 am
turn around for the answer. the dress is -- yes! yes. this dress -- there's a story. this is my wedding dress, my grandmother wore this dress in 1939. we have a picture of it. my mother wore it in 1967. i could not even get my forearm into the sleeve so the sleeves came off. i had to take some of the train off to me make it bigger but it's beautiful. 75 years. this was just hanging on a hanger in the back of my mom's closet. no preservation at all. >> wow. >> so no dry cleaning bag, but, you know, just the air can sometimes -- >> sentimental value. and the beauty. it's all in one. speaking of wedding anniversary, can we -- >> yep. >> oh. >> jerry and sherry are having their 50th wedding anniversary today. congratulations.
8:25 am
>> do you still have your dress? >> yes. >> ah, she does! ah. the cutest. congratulations, guys. >> congratulations and you look beautiful as always, becky. outside to ginger. >> happy 50th anniversary. we wanted to say a very good morning to grandma evelyn, right. evan, where does she live? >> racine. >> racine, wisconsin. >> yes. >> you did it. >> hi, grandma. >> just as loud as inside. >> yeah. >> so let's check the forecast. an update an tropical storm hermine. it has started to strengthen, 65-mile-per-hour max sustained wins on hurricane watch and warning right there in the bend of florida so, again, those winds will really kick up late tonight into early tomorrow is when it's expected to make
8:26 am
>> back in to you. >> coming up next, it is the makeup trend taking over the runway and the red carpet. no makeup, of course, there really is makeup so we'll tell you how to make it work for you.
8:27 am
good morning, everybody. i'm dan spindle. people we spoke with outside the donald trump event spoke for and against them. they said his speech did not change their minds. there was some shouting back and forth, a little bit of pushing as you can see outside the convention center after the speech. overall it was peaceful. a supporter. >> is there anything trump could say tonight that would turn you into a supporter? >> no. >> you walk in as a supporter and walking out as a supporter? >> yes. that would be true. >> please had to step in between some protesters when things got heated. no word on any arrests. during his meeting with the mexican president, trump hitched an idea of joint collaboration tween mexico and
8:28 am
enforcement. that is being practiced as a dps director frank milstead said the foundation is there. they are working actively with mexican authorities, helping them with training and sharing information on stolen cars and wanted fugitives. he hopes that one day there will be a position to work together on sensitive intelligence. >> in a perfect world one day i would like to have somebody from sonora in my counterterrorism center and we would have somebody there that is trusted and that information. >> the director added the communities in mexico are just as concerned about guns and ammunition humming from the u.s. as the u.s. is worried about the drugs. we've seen clouds moving into the valley. a slight chance of a shower for the morning commute but storm chances go up this afternoon. it will stay elevated as we head into this evening and overnight he will feel that monsoon moisture when you step outside.

8:31 am
earth approach. amanda seyfried, jessica alba kerry washington, all hitting up the red carpet sans the red lipstick. from the red carpet to the runway, faces are fresh using makeup subtly to get that radiant glow. joining me "allure" magazine editor in chief michelle lee. welcome. >> thank you, good morning. >> i'm a big fan of this look but why is it such a trend right now. >> well, to be honest with we're all in the crazy time of the year where we're all running around trying to get our kids ready for back to school so when we're doing that the time for primping tends to go way downhill so it's nice to find a routine incredibly fast. but if you're like me and really terrified of going fully bare faced, we'll learn how to do the no makeup makeup look. >> give us tips. >> yes, of course, key thing is starting with a good foundation so you have to have a nicely well hydrated face. >> you mean moisturizer.
8:32 am
start with a couple drops of face oil and put that under a moisturizer, extra brownie points if it has sunscreen in it which we should be doing it every single day and smooth it out on a clean face. >> skin care first. >> skin care first, absolutely, because the whole key in this look, you want it to have your fresh skin glowing through so a lot of people think let me go to foundation next, i say go to a primer. what a good primer will do -- >> i always wondered when you use your primer and primer at this point, so what it's going to do, help absorb some of that extra oil and helps to blur out those large pores, so when you do put foundation on, you put on less. >> okay, but then the foundation. >> well, not quite yet. >> okay. >> so what i like to do for this, actually use blush under foundation so what this does, is actually will give you a nice natural flush that looks like you got off a treadmill as opposed to -- >> getting on the treadmill and having to do that. >> exactly. so after do you that then put on your foundation. >> blush first.

we're not going to put foundation on all over the face because we want to go for a natural look so we're going to use our foundation as a concealer as you can see with our model here. >> under the eye. >> under the eyes, normally around the nostrils, anywhere you have a little bit of redness and the key here is that foundation tends to be a little more sheerer than concealer so you really won't look like you have a full face of makeup on. >> okay, so it isn't that much work. >> it's not that much work. really, really fast. >> what about that sponge? i heard this is like a m >> this is a genius trick. if you want a little more coverage in certain places, take a damp makeup sponge, that's the key, it has to be damp and dab it on the certain places where you want more coverage. so the key with the makeup sponge is that it's going to help with the pigments and take off some of the express makeup too so have you that fresh look without it looking totally overdone. >> you can use any sponge. the important part it's damp. >> it should be damp. we're big fans of this beauty blender. >> okay, i've seen that one with makeup artists.
8:34 am
alexandra has the last look. the last touches -- >> finishing touches are, go for a couple sweeps of a really good lightweight mascara that will help to open up your eyes. with the lips, what we want to do is enhance that natural lip color so we went with a pinkish-nude to pinkish-brown mixed with lip balm and final touch doing your brows so we took a really nice tinted brow gel and just kind of sweep that along the brows especially concentrating the color on the arch area where your plow brows tend to be a little more dark. >> you look beautiful. i love this, back to what she had. just enhanced it. >> she looks great and she's ready to go. >> that wasn't too much work. i like it. and the september issue of "allure" is on newsstands now and back out to ginger. >> oh, let's do it, sara. look at this. birthday corner over here. this guy is 50. this woman is 50. and this young lady is 13. what's your name? >> sarah. >> she wants to be on "gma" someday so we have to watch out for her. she's coming.

8:37 am
i could say that i went off and sort of tried to run a lighthouse for awhile, but -- >> do you like being alone? >> do i like being alone? i spend a lot of time alone. i guess, you know, the nature of my job means many hours at home by myself, so, yes, well -- >> i hate eating alone. >> i do a lot of that as well, and i'm the weird dude at the table by himself. >> reporter: early in the movie tom meets and falls madly in love with the lovely lively isabelle played by fassbender's real-life girlfriend alicia vikander. >> she's such a fierce performer. she's not afraid to bring ugly personality traits to the forefront in characters, so, yeah, i was just really impressed by her immediately. >> i know you're private about this, but is it true you melt and fell in love on set? >> yeah, we fell in love and sort of have been seeing each other since. >> life imitating art. >> well, possibly. >> it happens. >> yeah. >> it's her mother. >> as an actor you do not shy away from dark roles. >> how much?
