tv   Good Morning America  ABC  September 13, 2016 7:00am-9:00am MST

7:00 am
good morning, america. hillary clinton breaking her silence about her health. >> well, i just didn't think it was going to be that big a deal. >> promising to release more detailed medical records after that stumble in public. as bill clinton weighs in on his wife's condition, saying it's happened before. >> violence erupts overnight as donald trump takes aim at hillary clinton for calling his supporters deplorable. >> never in history has a major party presidential candidate so viciously demonized the american voter. >> we'll have what he's saying now about his own health. bursting into flames. a school bus catching fire. 20 children on board.
7:01 am
driver rushes to evacuate them. staying calm, saving their lives. drama on the dance floor. >> excuse me. hey, back off! >> two men rush the stage after olympian ryan lochte's first dance. security jumps in, taking them down just in time. the exclusive video you haven't seen. and new details from the ballroom. tom bergeron joins us live. and good morning, america. wow, you never know what you'll see on "dancing with the stars." looked like a football game out on that floor. >> live tv. anything can happen. >> i was watching that. it was really scary. i mean, really scary and judge carrie ann inaba, she was noticeably shaken. she couldn't get her words together afterwards. later she posted this photo on instagram. and she was thanking the security team and the dancing staff for keeping everybody safe. and just goes to show, anything can happen on live tv.
7:02 am
had to go to commercial and everybody settled down. >> tom will join us later on "good morning america." first we begin with the race for the white house. exactly eight weeks, that's 56 days, until election day. and the focus right now, hillary clinton and her health. she spoke out in an interview with cnn overnight. and here's what she had to say. >> well, i just didn't think it was going to be that big a deal. i felt dizzy and i did lose my balance for a minute. once i got in, once i could sit down, once i could cool off, once i had some water, i immediately started feeling better. so, i felt fine, but i'm now taking my doctor's advice which was given to me on friday that i ignored -- to just take some time to get over pneumonia completely. i was supposed to rest five days, that's what they told me
7:03 am
wise advice. so i just want to get this over and done with and get back on the trail as soon as possible. we're going to be releasing more information. and i think it's fair to say we've already met the standard of disclosure of past presidential candidates like mitt romney and president obama. we'll add more information, but i've already released information about my health in this campaign, as well as nearly 40 years of tax returns. >> hillary clinton late last night, of course, it did turn out to be a big deal. let's bring in cecilia vega who has been tracking these developments in the clinn all through the day and night. we also had the most extensive comments from bill clinton. >> reporter: we sure did, george. good morning to you. he's speaking out, saying there is nothing more to know about his wife's illness. hillary clinton's campaign says it's just pneumonia, no other undisclosed medical conditions. and they are now promising to release more detailed information about her health. hillary clinton is off the campaign trail this morning and at home in chappaqua resting following her doctor's orders.
7:04 am
>> she's doing fine. she -- she was even better last night before she went to sleep. she had a good night's sleep. she just got dehydrated. >> reporter: he did concede this is not the first time. in 2012, hillary clinton fainted at home and hit her head. suffering a concussion and a blood clot and having to wear special glasses for double vision. >> rarely but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing has happened to her when she just got severely dehydrated. and she's worked like a demon, as you know, as secretary of state and as a senator and in the years since. >> reporter: overnight, clinton said it doesn't happen often. >> i think really only twice that i can recall, you know, it is something that has occurred a few times over the course of my life. you know, i'm aware of it and usually can avoid it.
7:05 am
that video emerged that her campaign revealed clinton had pneumonia and she had been diagnosed two days earlier. this morning, her campaign is under fire for not immediately revealing her illness. and now, a mea culpa. >> in retrospect i think we should have provided more information more quickly. >> reporter: asked why the secrecy, clinton said she just wanted to keep working. >> it's just the kind of thing that if it happens to you, and you're a busy, active person you keep moving forward. she will be back out on the campaign trail later this week. she did cancel a trip to california and nevada. her husband is there on her behalf. she is -- while she is home recovering today president obama will also be out there on her behalf. he's in philadelphia today, guys. >> thank you, cecilia. let's bring in dr. richard besser for more on this topic. and, dr. besser, we heard both hillary and bill clinton speak about her health. but did we learn anything new and what don't we know?
7:06 am
these episodes of dehydration in the past. we also learned that her doctor said on friday that she should rest for five days. and like many patients, she did not follow that advice. there are a few things we still don't know. we don't know how the pneumonia was diagnosed. did she have a chest x-ray? we don't know the cause of the pneumonia. but for most patients who have a pneumonia, they don't do that kind of testing. they'll treat with an antibiotic and if they get better, they won't do any addit >> and, rich, we heard her say she's going to release more medical records. she's already released some. she's going to release more. get more into detail. what would you look for as a doctor? >> we heard she's going to release some and donald trump will have a physical and those results are going to be released. to be fair, in a general physical exam, there's not that much that you learn. you'll know their blood pressure, cholesterol, general things. but unless there is a glaring problem, it's not going to show up there.
7:07 am
records of some of the events she's had over the course of her life. i don't expect either candidate to do what john mccain did, release over a thousand pages of results. but there his health was a focus. his age, the fact that he had cancer, had been a prisoner of war, those were overriding questions. and so there were teams of doctors who were allowed to pore over all of those records. neither candidate is talking about that. they're saying they'll release additional records but i expect it to be focused. >> how important is it to interview the doctor? >> well, you know, that's a very good question. there's information that patients have that is personal but is probably not relevant to them being president. but there's information that may be relevant. and what you would need to see is a patient release that doctor from their hipaa requirement of not sharing information to say you're open to answer questions. if that were to happen, we would be able to get maybe some unscreened, unfiltered information. >> but you learn so much with someone's medical history, the
7:08 am
>> the whole body of history in my mind is much more relevant than what you're going to get out of one physical exam. a lot of people feel an annual physical doesn't show very much. >> we're talking a lot about it but you know who is not, donald trump. donald trump is showing restraint regarding clinton's health, saying he hopes she gets well. but not holding back on her comments about his supporters, accusing her of demonizing millions of americans. abc's tom llas in asheville, north carolina, where things got heated at a trump rally on monday. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning. donald trump is fighting hard for this battleground state but last night he came to an area of north carolina where he encountered some resistance. this as new questions are emerging this morning about how much money he's actually donated to charity throughout his life. >> look at that horrible sign. >> reporter: overnight, an ugly scene breaking out at a trump rally in asheville, north carolina. >> but the good news is the cameras follow it.
7:09 am
supporter grabbing a protester, slapping him. grabbing another by the head then shoving a female protester in the face. >> is there any place in america more fun to be than a trump rally? right? >> reporter: it was one of several incidents that broke out during trump's speech. >> don't tell me my business. hey, you're going to go [ bleep ]. you hear me? >> reporter: an anti-trump pac putting out this video which shows guards screaming and cursing at an apparent demonstrator. the republican nominee not endorsing any violence but saying his supporters have a right to shout down the demonstrators. >> when are we going to get smart? you know what the truth is, that's why we have a movement. that is why we have a movement because we're not going to take it anymore. >> reporter: trump reserving his firepower for hillary clinton. >> anybody xenophobic? i don't think so. >> reporter: trump reminding his
7:10 am
half of them, quote, a basket of deplorables. >> she was attacking millions of moms and dads. >> reporter: this, as trump's running mate, mike pence, refused on cnn to call former kkk grand wizard david duke deplorable. >> we don't want his support and we don't want the support of people who think like that. >> so you would call him a deplorable? >> i'm not in the name-calling business. >> reporter: hil tweeting -- if you won't say the kkk is deplorable, you have no business running the country. >> reporter: for now trump is not knocking clinton for her recent health issues and announced he had a physical last week and will release the findings sometime this week, possibly during an appearance on "the dr. oz show." now, on that david duke matter, pence said both he and trump had denounced duke on several occasions. now, this morning, there's a story if the washington post about trump's charitable donations. the campaign claims he's donated
7:11 am
throughout his life. the post says they've failed to provide proof to justify that figure. george? >> okay, tom llamas, thanks very much. let's bring in matt dowd our political analyst and start out with hillary clinton. this health scare dominating the news the last few days. there seems to be a big debate going on among strategists in the democratic and republican camps. one side says, you know, this isn't going to matter much at all, because views of both sides are so backed in. others saying it could hurt hillary clinton, even if it doesn't help trump, some of her support could bleed away and go to some of the third and fourth party candidates. undecided voters in the last 48 hours. and there's two dominant senses of undecided voters. one is they have great compassion for hillary clinton. they watch that video. they show that. they know these candidates work hard and have a lot of compassion for that and sense of leave her alone, let her recover. the other part they have is they wish she would be more transparent. they know she has trust issues and wish she would be more transparent in this. i think it's a good conversation to have. voters expect candidates to have some zone of privacy around them. but they want a sense of openness and that they'll share
7:12 am
with the general public. i think this incident on its own isn't going to matter. but if there's other things that happen, it could be very problematic. >> meantime, donald trump really on offense coming out of it. clearly his team thinks he'll have gains to make especially in the battleground states. and you also see it block out those stories of his foundation. yesterday he gave an interview where he called elizabeth warren pocahontas and questioned the integrity of janet yellen the fed chair. is the public and maybe the press become numb to donal trump and these statements? >> well, i think there's been -- because there's been so many outrageous statements, there's a discounting over time of this. and i think we've set the bar and many of -- i think donald trump's campaign has set the bar on honesty and truthfulness and transparency way too low. it's almost as if they're a track star and we're using a calendar instead of a stop watch to measure their time. and i think at some point, they're going to have to address
7:13 am
but right now, donald trump does not seem to care whether or not politifact says 70% of his statements are false. >> okay, matthew dowd, thanks very much. we move on from politics to that fire at the florida mosque orlando gunman omar mateen attended. authorities believe it was deliberately set. gio benitez is outside the islamic center in ft. pierce with a newly released surveillance video. good morning, gio. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. make no mistake about it, federal authorities are investigating this as a hate crime. crime but the exact motive still a mystery. this morning, the search is on for the mystery man seen in this video running from a florida mosque. >> he was holding a bottle of some sort of fluid. >> reporter: police believe he's the arsonist who started this massive blaze. >> flames are just going up like crazy. >> reporter: 911 calls pouring in. >> oh, there goes the roof. >> okay, don't go anywhere near it. okay? >> reporter: the fire igniting on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. >> lots of smoke. oh, my gosh.
7:14 am
>> reporter: and the beginning of one of islam's holiest holidays, eid al adha. but right now, authorities are also looking at the connection to omar mateen, the orlando nightclub shooter who killed 49 people often prayed here. his father, too. other members reportedly harassed since the shooting. >> started with hate calls develop and now somebody committing arson. >> reporter: and that person in the surveillance video is now under the fbi's microscope. look closely. he pulls up on a motorcycle and minutes later he's running from the scene. the flames creating this bright light. >> while the male was leaving, the male was shaking his hand. it is possible that the male sustained burns on that hand. >> reporter: and members here say they won't give up on this mosque. they won't go away. in fact, they fully intend to open it back up, even if it takes a little time, michael. >> all right, well, thank you,
7:15 am
and there's new fallout this morning over the samsung galaxy note 7 after reports of batteries exploding. and david kerley is in washington where authorities are pushing for an official recall. david, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, michael. samsung still not declaring that official government recall avoiding several triggers which experts say would protect consumers. instead, the company appears to be rushing out a replacement phone. after reports of samsung phones exploding on nightstands -- >> i call it exploding because this did shoot pieces of whatever -- it was inside the phone -- out. >> reporter: -- in cars. >> the last thought in my head is that a brand-new device is going to burn down my car or my house. >> reporter: and worry that one could explode in a jet. as we have seen in tests, the lithium batters -- batteries do burn quickly. consumer watchdogs say enough is enough. >> what samsung did, it's like the wild, wild west. >> reporter: criticism from advocates that the south korean electronics giant hasn't issued a u.s. government sanctioned
7:16 am
>> the all-new samsung galaxy note 7. >> reporter: instead, for now, samsung is offering exchanges. advocates say that leaves consumers exposed. >> we've left consumers in a situation where they're totally confused, they don't know was there a recall? was there not a recall? what am i supposed to do with my phone? >> reporter: with no official recall, the faa can't ban the phones from planes. >> samsung galaxy note 7 phones are not to be charged or powered on during this flight. >> reporter: and retail stores or individ be selling the potentially dangerous device. this morning samsung says it was a manufacturing detect and it's quickly replacing batteries. the consumer product safety commission says it will be independently evaluating the new battery to ensure that the consumer will not be harmed. now, samsung is being quoted out of south korea this morning that it will start distributing phones with new batteries next week. no word yet on what u.s. regulators think about that. robin?
7:17 am
also making headlines this morning, the ncaa announcing they are pulling all championship events from north carolina. that's in the wake of that controversial bathroom bill. linzie janis is here to explain to us what this means. >> good morning, robin. there's no question how much north carolina loves its college basketball. it has hosted more march madness games than any other state. but it won't be hosting any this year. that is because the ncaa has decided to relocate all of its championship tournament games in north carolina for 2017. laws which curbs protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. >> of course, as you said, north carolina very popular, basketball is huge in that state. how many games are we talking about here that are going to be canceled? >> six. they were scheduled to host six first and second round games next march. and this announcement follows the nba's decision to move that 2017 all-star game out of charlotte. >> yeah, from charlotte to new orleans. >> big blow for north carolina. >> yeah, that's a lot of money
7:18 am
all right, linzie. thank you very much. so to ginger and the latest what's going on out west? >> northern california, the willard fire, now 2,500 acres has blown up and wind speeds are decreasing a little. you can see in the video here. mandatory evacuations are still in place. they are working so hard, 10% contained. and we're also keeping our eye on the pacific because this super typhoon, man, is going toward thursday into china. this is very strong. now it is the strongest as far as wind speeds on the planet thus far this year. we're watching the timing and it will create flooding in china

? my foolish alibi ? welcome back to "gma." it was all so calm. ryan lochte foxtrotting with cheryl burke. just before the drama on the dance floor. >> you're a liar! >> there it is, protesters come on to the stage, grabbed by security. security takes him down right there. everybody seemed shocked. we have exclusive video of the incident. and tom bergeron is going to join us live in just a moment. >> good of tom to get up and talk to us more about that. hillary clinton breaking her silence about her health, saying she wants to get back on the trail as soon as possible. and will release more detailed medical records soon. as president obama is set to campaign for her today. and this morning a bus driver in maryland being hailed a hero evacuating 20 children from -- as flames were about to consume her school bus before emergency crews arrived.
7:31 am
each of the students off one by one, ran back into the burning bus to make sure everyone was out, thankfully nobody was hurt. she says she has two children. and i've often told you my first job was a bus driver, school bus driver. there is an enormous sense of responsibility. and these people, what they do. but that woman right there? oh. >> that was special. >> going back to make sure everybody was okay. and also this morning, one of my worst fears, underwater scare. we've all seen "jaws." what would you do if you came face to face with a great white? we have one college student who did. and he lived to tell about it. that's coming up. >> michael, you're new here. you just made a big, big mistake. >> i'm not going to -- >> no, you said it was one of your worst fears. everybody upstairs heard. we're going to put michael in the water. >> you know what, the thing is -- >> i couldn't -- we are so here. i thought the same thing. >> let me look at you, america. who is going to put me in the water? there's going to be a fight.
7:32 am
he's working on the promo. >> i'm not going easy. >> the promo writes itself. >> i can teach you a lot about how to say no. we'll move on right now and begin with that drama on "dancing with the stars." we saw those two protesters rush the stage, heading for ryan lochte right after his dance. abc's matt gutman is in l.a. with new video and details from the incident. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george. it caught everybody off guard, those protesters managed to come clear across the dance floor, almost right up to ryan lochte and cheryl burke who were standing right here. now those men were yelling, liar, liar at ryan lochte over that episode in rio. they were finally brought down by a whole group of security guards right around here. ? >> reporter: after foxtrotting his way onto the "dancing with the stars" premiere -- >> i really do feel that you brought your best to this ballroom. >> reporter: -- ryan lochte receiving his critique when suddenly -- >> excuse me. hey, back off!
7:33 am
>> excuse me. >> whoa. >> reporter: the show staying in split screen. host tom bergeron abruptly breaking to commercial. >> all right. we're going to -- we'll take a break and get the rest of the judges' comments, take a deep breath. we'll be right back. >> reporter: this is what you didn't see at home. >> oh, oh. excuse me. >> wow. >> reporter: two protesters wearing anti-lochte shirts storming the stage. >> excuse me. >> reporter: in this "gma" exclusive, you can see a high angle as security quickly tackles one of the protesters, before handcuffing him. he's then escorted from the ball loom. and there were other protesters in the gallery. watch "dancing" pro derek hough pull the curtain on these audience members sporting those anti-lochte shirts. >> get out of here, come on. get out. this is a good show. a positive show. >> reporter: when the show returned bergeron gamely tried to laugh it off. >> we had a little incident.
7:34 am
our security team for staying in shape. >> reporter: but it wasn't a joke for the lapd which arrested sam sododeh, and barzeen soroudi. >> we were sitting in our seats and we walked out and said, he's a liar. >> reporter: police say neither man touched anyone at the taping. >> i had a front row seat. my instinct was to go. i literally got up out of my chair. but then i stopped myself because i went, is this part of the show? focusing on a boozy incident during the rio games in which ryan lochte was caught lying about what happened at this gas station. he's now facing a ten-month ban from usa swimming. >> my biggest regret is letting other people down. this is my second chance. and i don't want to blow it. >> reporter: now we caught up with those men outside here. they were handcuffed. they said they had been protesting lochte because of that fiasco in rio. they said it endangered americans.
7:35 am
feel disgusted with what ryan lochte said and did in rio, what happened here seemed to turn the tide at least on social media and in this room, where he got a standing ovation. guys? >> okay, matt, thanks very much. let's bring in tom bergeron. tom, let me say right from the start, boy, you are a pro. all that is going on on live tv. >> thanks, buddy. >> you kept your cool. >> thank you. >> cut to commercial. but tell us what you were thinking when this all unfolded. >> well, look, it's not uncommon for there to be a here. a lot of cheering, a lot of jeering when people don't like the judges' comments. it wasn't really until i saw carrie ann's expression change that i got the sense something more was going on. and i turned, and honestly, by the time i saw the two guys coming with their t-shirts, our security team had -- had them sucking floor. and so it all happened very quickly. and then my main concern was
7:36 am
and to try to get some control of the show so we could move forward once i knew that that had been taken care of. >> you told everybody to take a deep breath. what was the audience reaction like, what was the feeling in the room afterwards? >> well, i think, much like ours. it was just -- we were shocked. and we have a very good security system here. there are metal detectors, bags are checked, et cetera, but, you know, i think our security did a great job in not assuming that just because these people wanted might not get physical, as well. but i think all of us needed that couple of minutes to just kind of take a deep breath and you correctly cite that the mood in the room was definitely in ryan's corner after these guys were escorted out. >> hi, tom. this is robin. were you aware, we saw -- >> hi, robin. >> hey. i echo what george has said. you are a pro's pro in how you handled everything. were you aware -- >> oh, stop.
7:37 am
>> stop it some more. were you aware of the other protests going on? we heard derek up in the balcony, you know, trying to shout down some protesters. were you aware of what was going on? >> derek ran right over to them. not immediately. then i heard carrie ann going, there are more. there are more. and i turned to see derek, you know, yelling for them to get out. and more security went up there. and then my concern shifted to make sure derek didn't get hurt. you know, because he leapt in defense of the show, which i love him for. and it was really -- it was really, you know, times of crisis, if you will, certainly bring people together. in -- in this case, that certainly was true. >> and, tom, this is michael. one quick question. the seats that those guys were in that have access -- good morning, to the floor like that, were those, like, vip seats? were those family and friend seats?
7:38 am
proved they weren't vip seats. but, no, it's just -- they were just, you know, part of our typical audience. and they went through a screening process like anybody else. and i think they had dressed appropriately for the show and then, you know, tore those away to reveal those t-shirts. >> as you can imagine, a lot of skeptics out there. what would you say to some skeptics? you heard alfonso say it might have been part of show, who say it's a stunt that was cooked up for the show? >> alfonso said he thought it >> no, that was his first thought. and then he -- in his mind, he realized it wasn't. >> oh, that was his first thought? i heard the audience members saying they didn't know what to do because they -- they weren't sure if it was part of the show. look. there are always skeptics about everything. we were kidding before i came on the air that oliver stone's doing a movie about last night. but, look, it wasn't -- it wasn't a bit. it was really unnerving and, again, i applaud our security
7:39 am
>> and you did a great job as we said as well, tom, thanks for joining us this morning. >> glad everybody's okay, tom. see you soon. >> thank you. all right, everybody. coming up on our big board, wells fargo is under fire for reportedly giving a huge, $124 million payday to a top executive. why it has so many people outraged. plus, the end of internet bullying? instagram's new tool that can help block online abuse. our insiders join us in two minutes to discuss those topics so stay right there. nutes to dit

bank with $124 million. rebecca jarvis joins us now and to be clear, this isn't a payout. this is her cashing in on her stocks options. but still, she oversaw this division. 5,000 employees had to be fired. and she walks away with all this money. it's very frustrating for a lot of people, rebecca. >> customers are outraged naturally, robin. they're frustrated by the idea that, "a," this could happen and, "b," that it seems to have worked out for the woman who was running the division where all of the problems started. 2 million fake accounts created over the course of five years, as you said 5,300 employees let go of their jobs because of the scandal that took place. now, wells fargo says that they put their customers first. that 100% of the time they are putting their customers first. they tell me that they've done an independent review. they've had someone come in and look at their practices, that every customer going forward will be taken care of.
7:43 am
want to know how it happened. >> exactly. and regardless of the independent review, elizabeth warren is calling for them to answer a lot of questions on capitol hill. and a lot of questions to be answered. do you think that's going to happen? >> i think it is, michael. in fact, the senate banking committee just said overnight that they will be seeing wells fargo and asking multiple questions coming up next week. the question is, what happens as a result of those questions? do consumers see better banking practices going forward? that's the hope. >> we all hope so and thank you, rebecca. now to what could be the beginning of the end for internet trolls. at least i hope it is. yes, thank you. instagram introducing a new tool that could help users filter out abusive comments. becky worley joining us live. becky, is this possible? can we finally have the end of trolling? >> mm. >> wouldn't it be great if the internet were civil? this is a start. instagram rolling out a new way to block comments that are perceived of as abusive. it's going to be automatic so that the victims don't have to
7:44 am
they're associated with abusive comments, and if those words show up, the comment is blocked. the commenter doesn't know they've been blocked. and the person never sees that comment. you have to turn this on, but it's a great start. >> and you have to put in the words that you find -- >> you can do that. you can customize it if you want. >> the problem is i might lose half my friends. >> come on now. nothing but love for you, michael. nothing but love for you. ariel winter said this addressing the hatred writing, "i love my fans, i love my bullies for what they truly need is love. take the high road. there is less traffic." >> she's right. >> is this really going to do anything? >> she's like the mother teresa of social media. most people, you can't unsee the negative things that you see. chrissy teigen taking the opposite approach and already customizing her filter with a list of words that would make george carlin blush. you really realize how much hate is there. but this is a good start. >> yeah, it is. >> at least it's a start.
7:45 am
>> that's it. let's hope so. now to a heated debate over a grade school tradition, recess. yes, while many educators have been cutting back, a school district in long island is doubling its recess times believing it may be the key to the whole child development. educator ron clark joins us. you've got thumbs up here at the desk about this. not everybody is crazy about it. where do you fall on it, ron? >> i think it's awesome. all over america kids are bored to death, they're sitting in class for eight hours straight and staring. there's no passion. kids can't move. can't get their endorphins flowing, so i think it's wonderful. the only advice i would give the school instead of doing recess 40 minutes a day, get the kids moving during the class time, as well. at our school in atlanta, we had our teachers remove our desks from the classrooms. we said we will not work out at l.a. fitness. let teaching be our workout.
7:46 am
rap our lessons. there's passion. the blood is flowing so kids are excited and our test scores have gone through the roof because of it. >> it's exciting to watch you. you're working out as you're doing it. we found out this particular school they offer yoga. they do have gym in addition to doubling it so, yeah, the school in long island so they are doing something. what was your favorite in recess? mine was kickball. what was yours, ron? what did you like in recess? >> yeah, in the country, ain't nothing like kickball. it's a good day with great weather. loved it. i agree. >> how about you, rebecca. we got to go. what was yours? >> football. >> football? >> i love playing touch football. >> marbles. marbles. >> marbles. >> got to play marbles on the recess. >> we made up games. that's what i love. you had to be creative. that's the great thing. i know a lot of kids are begging to move into your school district. that's all i'm saying. ron, thank you. becky, thank you and rebecca, thank you, as well. coming up in two minutes a college student's incredible, incredible close encounter with a great white shark. we got the whole thing on tape. and we'll find out how he managed to escape. better him than me, that's all i know. >> ooh, tether ball.

>> well, i mean i think that there's a lot of reasons why. you know, i can't get into all of those. we don't have enough time here right, robin? but, i think, for me, the reason i wrote the book is i really want to help people. i know that for me i was ashamed of it for a long time. that's why i wasn't capable of getting help. my family, like they're a little bit stressed that i've like uncovered this news. they're upset because i was in so much pain and they didn't really even know because i kept it private for so long. so this is like my call to people out there to to ask for help. i think it could help people, i really do. >> i know it can help people. and you really didn't intend to go there. >> no. >> you said it was the dui in april that really opened your eyes, and you said you had to come clean. you said it was one of the best things that ever happened to you. >> yeah, i mean i think for me whenever -- when i agreed to do this book, this was not a part of the plan, right. i was going to write this book about my soccer legacy and talk about that, but once i got the
8:22 am
part of the story. and now i have to actually really tell it. and to be unashamed about something and to feel like you can actually help people through your story, with whatever they may be going through, i think it's a story that needs to be told. >> and people want to know, it's a tough question to ask you because you've been a friend for a long time, were you ever under the influence at all during a game, an important game of any sort? the world cup or -- >> that's a great question. i'm so glad you ask and the answer is a complete no. this is something that happened obviously after games and during mostly off periods like off-seasons and whatnot. >> the chill abby. >> the chill abby, for sure. >> you're a gemini and you write about that in the book. >> yeah, yeah, absolutely, and i think that for me, you know, i'm so glad that you asked that question because like abuse for years, like the prescription stuff didn't happen until late in my career. and alcohol has, you know, i've been drinking alcohol since i was 21 years old, so that was
8:23 am
over the time of my career. >> you have a lot of love from your family. you've got six siblings. your teammates. and one of them, alex morgan, has a little shoutout for you. >> no way. >> yeah, here it is. >> hi, abs, first of all, i just want to say that i freaking miss seeing your face every single day. and i miss my partner in crime on the field. but most of all why i'm filming this is i want to congratulate you on such a courageous book. honestly, abby, i'm so proud of you and i'm really happy for you. you deserve it so enjoy this moment. love you. >> oh. >> she goes from abs like that. and i got to tell you, it is very brave. you go there and there is a theme you go back to again and again, and i want to quote you from your book. you said, "if i play well, my mother might forgive me for being who i am." that was a theme that you kept repeating. what did you mean by that? >> well, i think that, you know, i came from a fairly conservative -- my family is irish catholic.
8:24 am
whole life, and, you know, being gay and then having some of these demons that i felt like i had to numb away and some of the pain that i had throughout my career, i was -- it was part of who i am, and so i really -- you know, this is kind of one of those things that being inside my own skin and being scared and being in pain, i just really wanted to feel love, you k and i know my mom loves me. god, mom, i love you so much. you're the best. i know my family loves me. just sometimes for really deep feeling people, it's hard to actually feel that. >> yeah, and i love after one of your games and you were so down and she just hugged you and she said i love you. >> and i cried. i remember, i cried as hard as i've ever cried maybe in that moment. >> we're very sorry to hear about your divorcing sarah. people remember the kiss that went viral like that and it's just one of those things.
8:25 am
>> right. >> even then that you all were struggling. are you okay? >> yeah, i mean sarah and i, we've had an amazing relationship. i have nothing but love for her and obviously that moment was so iconic and something that i'm very, very proud of. and i know that this was not easy for her. you know, this whole struggle that i went through, she saw firsthand. she was literally on the front lines of this and was, you know, my biggest advocate, my biggest champion and was there for me in times when i didn't even know i could so, for me, this is definitely really hard -- obviously, going through any divorce is difficult, but nothing but love for sarah. >> yeah, and nothing but love for you, respect, thank you for sharing as you have and thank you for how you're fighting for pay equality. >> yeah. >> and you guys need that. i mean here you are. no one has scored more goals than you, but, bless you. >> love you, girl. >> i love you back. "forward," you got to pick it up, people. it is out today. [ cheers and applause ]

8:30 am
welcome back to "gma." live from times square. ? i love this new studio. i love having the audience here with us. we welcome you back to "gma." a great crowd, as always and you are a great crowd. [ applause ] nobody puts baby in the corner. nobody puts baby in the corner. >> you know, i told the crowd they better be careful. they're all on tv and if they're supposed to be at work or school, that they're in trouble. uh-oh. >> this is what i'm bringing to the table. a few weeks ago kanye west dropped his new video and this is about as much of the video as we can show you on morning tv so --
8:31 am
? hold up hold up ? ? i feel it ? >> but you know what, that video was insanely viral but looks like she has a little competition from somebody that we all know. take a look at this. ? ? i fade away ? >> come on, shaq. ? hold up hold up ? >> look. >> he's not done ye he's not done. >> going to drop like it's hot. >> up close and personal. >> oh. >> he dives into camera. the man is not holding back. that's what you do i guess when you are an nba hall of famer, congratulations for shaq. >> yeah. [ applause ] and you had a big celebration last night downtown to celebrate him going into the nba hall of fame and i went down and i saw him and i said, hey, i saw the video and you know what he says to me. you want to challenge me? >> do we have that video?
8:32 am
>> i -- no, no, no. >> he wants to challenge me here. >> oh. >> and? and? and? [ applause ] >> and -- >> michael, do you know -- >> i develop my own moves, lara. but all i can -- >> if you do it you get to stay out of the shark tank. >> i'm not scared, shaq. right here on this -- we'll have a dance-off. >> you know, right now -- do you know what's happening behind that door right now. bookers are like -- shaq, line 4. we want that so badly. >> yes. >> congrats to him. >> absolutely. all right, so here's what i bring to the table. when we were growing up you know the magic words all our moms taught us, please. thank you. usually worked like a charm but now one professor in the uk is
8:33 am
magic word out there that might be even more influential. i want to ask you guys to write down what could a new magic word be. >> just one word. >> one of our audience members said abracadabra. that is not the answer. you know what it's not? you can be contrarian. >> in your opinion what would -- >> when you ask for something what is the magic word. >> please, thank you and now -- >> one magic word. >> oh, yeah. >> oh, wow, michael. >> i'm ready. >> go ahead, michael. >> now! especially when you have a face like that. >> robin. robin, you're will close. >> will. >> and george, my least favorite word in the english language. whatever. >> the opposite, that's indifference. the word is willing. it's willing and they have done massive testing. this professor says that if you
8:34 am
a request the person says, no go. try doing it again including the word willing. would you be willing to do this. that makes them think about, well, what they're capable of and what are their parameters in life. >> it also helps put it off for a little while instead of saying yes or no. >> it paraphrases so a little food for thought as you start your workday or school day or trying to get out of homework, mom, would you be willing to let me out of homework? >> i'm willing but not able. no. >> wow be willing to give me a glass of water now? >> that'll do it. [ applause ] [ all talking at once] >> i love it all comes together. have you all seen -- it's gone viral. a wonderful story. unfortunate that somebody and
8:35 am
people going through cancer so there was a man who is going through that and 450 students at a faculty at a high school in the nashville area, they decide to go to his home and to sing to him. take a look at this. ? you are welcome here ? ? come flood this place and we'll be there ? ? your glory, god, is what our hearts come for ? ? presence, oh ? >> you got tears there. how moved we all are. we did get a chance to catch up with mr. ellis. here's what he had to say. >> it overwhelmed me that god would fill that many students with that much love and that moment i felt like i was not alone. >> not alone. >> you are not alone. >> he is really loved.
8:36 am
christ academy. nate mar roe and teacher's daughter, betsey ellis joining us right now and, nate, tell us how this whole idea came about. >> well, ben is a man who loves like jesus loves, first of all. he loves larishly, he loves intentionally and he has taught us all how to love better so through this fight worship has been a place of peace for him, a place he's found joy in worshiping and praising in community soas some hard news about his treatment options and our high school principal parker altman called and said, nate, i want to take the high school to ben's house and worship with him and do it now. can we and i simply said let's go and it was a moment, we got to all be a part of love and action that was probably one of the greatest lessons that i know i and i think all of us will have learned and it didn't happen in a classroom.
8:37 am
oftentimes those in high school are accused of only thinking about themselves. but this was so selfless and that had to, i know, meant so much to mr. ellis and to others there to see them not think of themselves. but of him. >> yeah, absolutely. i mean, i think that was just a reflection back to ben what he's meant to us. he is a guy who in the hallway and the classroom, everywhere he goes he pursues people and never thinks of himself and i think that was just a could love him back. >> betsey, how was it for you to see all your friends and classmates behind you right there serenade your dad? >> it was so special and it was amazing because we didn't necessarily serenade him. we got to worship with him and especially because of how important worship has been for my dad and my family through this whole journey, it was just so amazing and special to get to worship with him again and i
8:38 am
who are walking beside me and who love me and it was just a beautiful picture of the body of christ for me. >> betsey, do your friends behind you, do they have a message for your dad this morning? >> we do. we do. students -- >> we love you, mr. ellis. >> love you, dad. [ applause ] >> give -- betsey, give your father our love. blessings to you all. thank you so much? thank you. >> outside to ginger. >> ah, you got me tearing up out here. a fresh and beautiful morning
