7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking overnight -- hillary clinton cancels a campaign trip after her knees buckle at the 9/11 ceremony. hours later, waving and smiling. >> feeling great, feeling great. >> then, clinton reveals she has pneumonia. the latest on her health this morning. how will donald trump respond? also this morning, at least a dozen wildfires burning out west, forcing evacuations from california to washington. now more states facing fire watches and warnings. and winds up to 50 miles an hour threatening to spread the blaze. a ship with 150 people on board smashes into a pier. both engines consumed by fire. the captain rushes passengers off the deck, a police helicopter and firefighters on the scene. standing united. nfl players across the country protesting during the national
7:01 am
>> the message is very clear and you've heard us. and now we're asking you to listen to our message. >> as nfl commissioner roger goodell speaks out, and the player who started it all prepares to take the field tonight. and good morning, america. a big opening weekend for the nfl. you saw all the players echoing colin kaepernick's protest. that was before the games, and there was a big upset overnight. the patriots winning over the cardinals. >> that was without tom brady. four games suspended, and his backup, jimmy garoppolo stepping in. we'll talk to tom about what he was up to. michael was covering football over the weekend. he will be back tomorrow. he's on his way back. we begin with the race for the white house, and the latest on hillary clinton's health. after she was rushed out of a 9/11 memorial event caught on tape stumbling. her aides lifting her into a vehicle.
7:02 am
but there are more questions about her health. abc's cecilia vega has more on this. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. serious questions about her health and about why her campaign did not disclose this diagnosis sooner. hillary clinton's health was the subject of right-wing blogs and conspiracy theories. now it is a central issue in this campaign. the video shows hillary clinton leaving the 9/11 memorial early. as the van doors opens, she doesn't move. a team of aides and secret service agents rush to h one grabbing her by the waist. another by the arm. her head bobbing. as clinton tries to enter the van, she loses her footing and nearly collapses. it takes three people to help her. clinton nearly hits the ground as they put her in that van. which then drives to her daughter chelsea's apartment. about two hours later, clinton appears, smiling and waving. >> how are you feeling, secretary clinton? >> feeling great.
7:03 am
>> reporter: she greeted a young girl. but ignored questions about her health. >> what happened? what happened? >> it's a beautiful day in new york. >> what happened? >> what happened? >> reporter: initially, clinton's campaign said she felt overheated. during the ceremony. it wasn't until hours later on sunday evening that her team revealed she was sick. her doctor said she was diagnosed with pneumonia on friday. >> every time i think about trump, i get allergic. >> reporter: it came in an example of a recent cough clinton said was related to allergies. >> we have 63 days to go. >> reporter: the doctor says in a statement that the 68-year-old democratic nominee was put on anti-biotics and advised to rest and modify her schedule. adding that she became overheated and dehydrated at the memorial but she is now recovering nicely. clinton's health was also the
7:04 am
she suffered a concussion after fainting and hitting her head. at the time, aides downplayed the severity of the injury, but she later appeared wearing special glasses for double vision. she had a blood clot. it took her six months to make a full recovery. on the campaign trail, donald trump has turned clinton's health and stamina into an attack line. >> she doesn't have the strength or the stamina. and you know what? we can be nice and politically correct, and say -- we don't have the time anymore, fos. off the attacks as conspiracy theories. >> there are so many of them, i've lost track of them. >> reporter: this morning, she's back home in chappaqua following doctor's orders for rest. this morning, clinton had planned to leave on a campaign swing to california, and her trip to the west coast has been canceled. she's facing renewed calls to release her full medical records. so far, no word from the campaign on whether that will happen. donald trump has also not released his this campaign. >> that's right. thank you. we're going to bring in dr. richard besser, and martha
7:05 am
our own roundtable in the morning. >> yeah. >> you saw the video. what did you see? >> she's leaning on a post there. the door is open. she goes to get in, she's supported under her arms. her feet come up off the ground. you can see that she's not able to walk in on her own. when you see something like that, it could be caused by any number of things. what's reassuring to me as a doctor is the video 90 minutes later. she's outside the apartment. she is able to talk with people and greet,s and that, to me, is consistent with the story that we're hearing that she was dehydrated and got rehydrated and was feeling better at that time. >> the doctor is saying pneumonia. some people are wondering, could it be something more serious? >> you hear the word pneumonia. people wonder what that even is. pneumonia is a lung infection. it can be caused by bacteria, by viruses. by funguses.
7:06 am
what i would like the know is how was she examined? how did they make the diagnosis? did she have an x-ray? what kind of pneumonia? >> walking pneumonia. >> that used to refer to microplasma, and it was mild, and people might not know they had it until a doctor put a stethoscope on their chest. people could go about their day. certain types of pneumonia are contagious. some need antibiotics. other ones don't and there's a lot there as a doctor i would want to know of disclosure as well. she was diagnosed on friday. that statement comes out early in the day, and says overheated, but doesn't disclose. the pneumonia echoes of 2012 when she had the concussion. >> when she was secretary of state. as cecilia mentioned, early in december, december 9th, she basically called in sick to the state department. they said she's under the weather. what we didn't really know for about four or five days was that she had fallen. they kept saying she was not
7:07 am
they gave no details. she actually was diagnosed with a concussion on a thursday of that week and didn't come out until saturday. tell us about the concussion. then the blood clot later in the month. they basically said, she wants to get back to work, and she is making good progress. a month later, we see her with those glasses. and they did not disclose those glasses were for double vision. somebody caught it by looking at the photograph. >> they made a big point at the time that she wasn't hospitalized. >> they said she wasn't hospitalized, but what happens is they bring the hospital to her. they do tests there. they had 24-hour nursing care. but they never, ever said what exactly was going on. >> as a doctor right now, you're seeing a lot of op-eds by other doctors, about what obligation each candidate has to disclose. pretty extraordinary situation. donald trump, 70 years old, and hillary clinton, 68.
7:08 am
released something like 1,200 pages. >> some of the calls are for an independent panel to do a medical evaluation. you can't play professional football or baseball without having a medical clearance. without someone doing a thorough exam, who is independent. i don't think that's unreasonable for a president. as you hit your 70s, there are all kinds of problems that tend to come up that you see less in people who are young. and people want to know the health status of their candidates. doctors won't lie when they're talking. they also won't disclose things without the permission of a patient or a candidate. >> as we said, neither candidate -- neither candidate has released those medical records. after this and because of the age and what you're talking about, more pressure. >> and brings up those issues of mistrust again for hillary clinton. which is such a huge issue in this campaign. >> for both sides, yes. a lot of people are wondering about donald trump. all eyes on his campaign and their reaction to what happened. abc's tom llamas is at trump
7:09 am
what is the campaign saying about all of this? >> reporter: robin, good morning. minutes ago, donald trump weighed in on what has happened to hillary clinton. he says he hopes she feels better is, and he doesn't know what is going on. he said she had the coughing fit a week ago. he hopes to see her at the debate. the trump campaign is focused on something hillary clinton did over the weekend. speaking at a fundraiser on sunday night, she said half of trump's supporters are, quote, a basket of deplorables. this morning, the trump campaign is out with a new campaign ad making sure voters hear that statement. >> speaking to wealthy donors, hillary clinton called tens of millions of americans deplorable. >> you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. the racist, sexist, homophobic,
7:10 am
name it. >> people like you, you, and you, deplorable. >> reporter: now, the clinton campaign and clinton herself did apologize for that statement. the next day, she said, quote, last night, i was grossly generalistic. and that's never a good idea. i regret saying "half." that was wrong. now, robin, this is something the trump campaign is going to hone in on this week. trump has called this very insulting and saying this will affect clinton in the polls. >> the trump campaign is likening this to something that mitt romney said in 2012, right? >> reporter: that's right. donald trump is calling this you will remember, that's the big gaffe mitt romney had in the 2012 campaign, when he compared 47% of america, saying they were def dependent on government, and they all felt like victims. many people felt that comment possibly costed romney the election. >> let's bring in jon karl and get more. let's start with the deplorable comment. you heard what donald trump is doing.
7:11 am
in several battleground states right now, and hillary clinton's apology, not really an apology. she regretted using the word "half," but reinforced the message she was sending friday night in the statement he sent out. i think she's at least betting on the fact that this will not be her 47% comment. >> yeah, that was one of the great nonapology apologies to say she regretted using the word "half." what is the percentage? is it a quarter? what was she saying? one of the ironclad rules of politics is you can mock your opponent. you can maybe get away with callinyo but you don't mock the voters. that's what she's done. and the danger for her is she's just given a big motivator to trump voters. right now, trump voters are more energized, more motivated than hillary clinton voters. also, independents don't like the name-calling either. >> our poll shows his supporters right now, much more enthusiastic than hers, and it shows -- martha mentioned this -- honest and trustworthy numbers.
7:12 am
35% for hillary clinton, 31% for donald trump. she didn't help herself yesterday. >> not at all, george. i mean this is her biggest vulnerability as a presidential candidate. that voters simply do not trust her. those are remarkable numbers for both candidates. you have roughly a third saying they trust her. two-thirds suggesting not. if you can't trust her about how she feels, what can you trust her about? this was not simply a lack of transparency yesterday. this was borderline deception. they said she was overheated. they said she was feeling fine, and you find out she was diagnosed with pneumonia. not a good day on the transparency part. >> what do you make of the argument that she's held to a double standard? she puts out much more information than donald trump. he has a four-paragraph letter. she puts out ten years of tax returns. he doesn't put out any, and the point they are making is, yes, this may be an issue, but you all are not covering the other side.
7:13 am
his doctor. a doctor that wasn't necessarily qualified to make the assessment, and it was frankly a joke of a letter. it said he would be the most healthy, robust president we have ever had. he's not submitted to this. he would be the oldest newly elected president in american history. he clearly has to do something here. but look, this is about her. what happened yesterday is about her. >> no question. thank you, jon karl. >> and thank you martha and rich. the battle against the zika virus making headlines. miami beach's mayor warns the threat is growing. residents say they are concerned about the chemicals being used to fight mosquitos. abc's gio benitez is on the scene there, miami beach. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, robin. good morning to you. i gotta tell you some residents are furious. they worry this spray is toxic. in fact, in parts of south florida, it's already started killing off those important honey bees, and now they want it to end.
7:14 am
expected after a weekend of fighting off zika mosquitos from the air. with 56 people already infected by local mosquitos in south florida. >> hey, hey, we don't want no spray. >> reporter: right now, some residents in miami beach are more concerned about the spraying than the actual virus. >> folks of miami beach did not consent to this. we were not consulted. >> reporter: the insecticide is instantly in flight. the cdc says naled is safe. it has been banned in europe since 2012. protesters starting an online petition. nearly reaching its 10,000-signature goal. but across south florida, other cou counties say they are using a less harmful insecticide. they say it's not harmful to humans, pets or aquatic habitats. >> it's found naturally in the ground. it's an organic material. it has been used in the florida keys for a number of years. >> reporter: as the fight against the disease intensifies,
7:15 am
needed to fight zika in florida and across the country is drying up. >> zika is spreading. by the end of this month, we'll be out of money to respond effectively. >> reporter: and here in miami beach, because of all the spraying, we're told that some parents actually kept their children home from school on friday. clearly, this is a huge issue here, george. >> boy, it sure is. thank you very much. now to the stunning recall of samsung's galaxy note 7. the company urge people with the smartphone to shut it off, return it immediately. linzie janis is here with the details. this comes after scary new reports of the battery exploding. >> reporter: that's right, george. good morning. samsung is stepping up its recall, asking owners of the note 7 to take immediate action to protect themselves. >> the all-new samsung galaxy note 7. >> reporter: this morning, an urgent new message from samsung. turn off your galaxy note 7s immediately to avoid something
7:16 am
is that a brand new device is going to burn down my car, my house. >> reporter: the world's largest smart phone manufacturer urging customers to exchange their note 7s for a new model after announcing a voluntary recall of 2.5 million devices earlier this month. the devices' lithium ion batteries exploding or igniting, the company says, sparking as many as 35 reported fires. >> the smoke was unbearable. black, thick smoke. our whole house was full of sm >> reporter: this illinois woman says her note 7 exploded on her nightstand, spraying parts of her melted phone on her bed and even on her dog. >> i call it exploding. it did shoot pieces of whatever, it was inside the phone out. >> reporter: over the weekend, a 6-year-old boy in new york was rushed to the hospital with burns after his family says one of the recalled devices exploded in his hands while he was watching a video. and those faulty batteries now
7:17 am
warning across the country. coming straight from the faa. >> samsung galaxy note 7 phones are not to be charged or powered on during this flight. >> if one phone gets trapped in a seat, crushed, is on fire. the whole seat is on fire. what you may or may not have is the ability to fight that fire. >> reporter: there could be more trouble ahead for samsung. the company is being sued by a man who says he was badly burned after a different samsung model, the galaxy s-7 edge blew up in his pocket. we have some photos of his burnt out phone to show you. samsung tells us it is aware of the lawsuit but won't comment on pending litigation. >> what about the customers who want to turn it in for a safer model? >> reporter: they may have to wait a while, and the new note 7 devices will be made available after they're approved by the consumer product safety commission. they are not giving us a time line for how long that will be. >> can't come soon enough. thanks, linzie. how about the fires that we're seeing out west. >> right. 12 large wildfires burning now.
7:18 am
the willard fire. there are mandatary evacuations. 1,000 acres burned. look at this video out of washington state. east of the cascade mountains, we're seeing that 230-yard fire. at 500 acres, they have some schools closed. fire alerts are up for parts of the west and nevada. utah, colorado, washington, and oregon, along with califo country, cold air pushing in. huge temperature difference. you could see severe storms and damaging winds in parts of kansas all the way into iowa. your local weather in 30 seconds. first though, the select cities

kids don't know how to act fake. i like your face. so we're learning to be more like them. removing artificial flavors and colors from general mills cereal. i like his face. people say, let's just get a sandwich or something. "or something"? you don't just graduate from medical school, "or something." and we don't just pull smoked chicken, bake fresh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it. when i was diagnosed with pneumococcal pneumonia, it was huge for everybody. she just started to decline rapidly. i was rushed to the hospital. my symptoms were devastating. the doctor said, "pam! if you'd waited two more days, you would've died." pneumococcal pneumonia almost took me from them. if i had known that a vaccine could have helped

7:31 am
gets well. and take a look at this. watch as a ship with 50 people on board. watch this. ooh. the london pier. the captain telling people to move inside. the police helicopter and firefighters on the scene. thankfully, everyone safely evacuated. no one was seriously injured. >> thank goodness. a lot of traffic in new york this week. it's fashion week. we have tim gunn from "project runway." he's taking a stand. blasting designers and calling the industry a disgrace, saying it's not creating clothes for al he is going to join us live coming up. >> how fashionable is this? somebody outside during the commercial break -- from hawaii. isn't it gorgeous? i got lei'd. couldn't resist. couldn't resist. >> happy monday. >> happy monday, everybody. we begin with patriotism and protests across the nfl. the first sunday of the football season coming on the 15th anniversary of 9/11. not stopping some players from take a knee, raising a fist
7:32 am
abc's kayna whitworth is in santa clara where the 49ers and colin kaepernick will take the field tonight. that's where it started. kayna? >> reporter: robin, good morning. the 49ers host the rams here tonight. we saw players across the league show their support for colin kaepernick's call to end racial inequality. on a solemn anniversary, we saw some teams handle this moment. overnight, a wave of nfl members joining colin kaepernick's protests against racism and police brutality. coast to coast, players supporting the movement. entire teams, making the unified decision to stand, by linking arms in solidarity during the national anthem. ? o say can you see ? >> reporter: on the seattle sideline, it wasn't just players, but coaches, employees, fans following suit. >> hopefully, it will unify our country. to where there's a message that
7:33 am
now listen to us. >> reporter: the kansas city chiefs doing the same. but their cornerback grabbing headlines after raising his fist in the air. two patriots players also raising a fist. this, as over the weekend, roger goodell spoke out. about kaepernick's movement. >> i support our players speaking out about issues they think need to be changed in our society. what i do believe, though, is the respect for our country. >> reporter: making a statement has come at a cost for some players, like brandon marsha the air academy federal credit union dropping the player saying while we respect brandon's right of expression, his actions are not a representation of our organization and membership. but for some, kaepernick's movement is opening a dialogue. this former player, also a green beret, says while he was initially angered by the stance, over the last two weeks, his feelings have evolved. >> i thought what the seahawks ended up doing was powerful. not only because they were all
7:34 am
intermixed and a lot of people in the stands were doing it, too. that's what it's supposed to be all about. bringing people together. trying to be part of the answers. instead of protesting in some way and expecting everybody else to fix the problem. >> reporter: he says it's not inspiring unless kaepernick and the other players become agents of change. he's encouraging colin kaepernick and the other players to communities. not just financially, but by donating their time, as well. robin? >> thank you. for more, we bring in stephen a. smith. so much happening on sunday in week one of the nfl. first of all, your reaction? that was quite a moment when you saw players, coaches, fans, all joining arms like that. linking arms. >> oh, definitely, especially in seattle. everybody was locking arms together. and they were just basically reminding the country of who we are, who we're supposed to be. if you recall, obviously, the 15th anniversary of 9/11. think about that day, how tragic it was for all of us as
7:35 am
together. because on that fateful day, the bottom line was, it wasn't black or white. we were all americans and standing as one with somebody elsewhere attacking us as a nation. the seattle seahawks in particular, i had spoken to that team, that team in particular wanted to remind the world that we're all one. we're all supposed to be about being together. it's about -- it's supposed to be about togetherness. and that was the kind of message th particularly on a day like yesterday, and i thought they succeeded. >> a lot of what you saw at the football stadiums across the country, oh gosh. it was quite a moment. that one in particular linking arms, standing together. what about the protests, though, the kneeling, the raising of the fists? your reaction to that? >> when you think about it, don't just think about the star spangled banner, but think about the pledge of allegiance. i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america. and to the republic for which it stands.
7:36 am
under got, indivisible. for liberty and justice for all. you see colin kaepernick and others stepping up, kneeling, raising a fist. when he took a knee, et cetera. what they're saying is that, you know, it's supposed to be about justice for all. and that simply is not the case when it comes to a lot of african-americans in this country. history shows that. it's undeniable. they're saying that in spite of everything that's going on and in spite of our willingness to all be together, this flagrant ineptitude, and, you know, unfairness taking place in this nation, it has to be addressed. that can't be forgotten in the throes of all this that's going on. we live in the greatest country in the world, and there are things to come with it that are beneficial to all of us, bus at the same time, there are issues that need to be addressed and it cannot be forgotten. that's the message the athletes want to make sure is hit home. which is why they talked about violence against unarmed african-americans and others.
7:37 am
>> there have been consequences as we heard in kayna's report. brandon marshall losing one of his sponsors. and you say, that is sending the wrong message. you believe that? >> i absolutely believe that. i think it reeks of hypocrisy. because if america is about everybody, and the land of the free and home for the brave, about freedom of speech, which is in the first amendment of our constitution, how are you going to punish a guy for expressing himself? he didn't harm anybody. he didn't impede anything going on. the games were still played et cetera. it shows that when they say, you have freedoms, once again, you don't necessarily have that. you lost an endorsement deal. that's somebody saying, we don't want you to be a part of us. it's unamerican as far as i'm concerned. you're asking him to quell his speech, his rights as a u.s. citizen. that's really something we have to work on as well. i thought it reeked of hypocrisy. >> before you go. jesse is sitting here as well. the patriots. tom brady's backup comes in. i don't want to talk about the saints by the way. that breaks my heart. >> i wouldn't do that to you.
7:38 am
what about what we saw with tom brady and his beautiful wife, gisele? he is keeping busy. during this four-game suspe suspension. what do you make of that? >> first of all, he has his wife at home with him. she's there. she's his ultimate supporter, and kudos to her. we all know what is coming. tom brady will come back after the fourth game. he is going to come back with major attitude, and he is going to wreak havoc upon everybody because he is peeved he is not playing. and the fact he plays in the afc east helps and because he wasn't there, the patriots were the only team within the division that actually won. it's a prelude to what is to come. the new england patriots will win the division yet again. they will get to the playoffs. >> you have some chuckles here from george. >> wreak havoc. >> life is good for tom brady. beautiful wife. throwing on the lawn. you can't get tackled on the lawn, and your team is winning
7:39 am
>> but remember, didn't he fill in for drew bledsoe? >> yeah, and won a super bowl. that's not going to happen. tom brady. >> we're not starting a controversy. he's just fine. >> i want to see the pictures some more. coming up on the big board, greta van susteren is speaking out. could she be the next to file a lawsuit? an alarming report about parents' medical mistakes with their kids. our insiders join us in two minutes at the big board. minutes at the big board.
7:40 am
when are they leaving? grilled cheese and campbell's tomato soup go together like grandchildren and chaos. made for real, real life. you know how it is, someone does something nice for you and you feel obligated to do something nice back. maybe your aunt sent you a crocheted scarf, you sent a thank you note... and the crochet just kept on coming. well, at carmax, you don't have to return the favor. they'll buy your car even if you don't buy a car from them. because feeling obligated is uncomfortable. in places it shouldn't be. carmax won't make you feel that way. lucky you.
7:41 am
back now with the big board. our team of insiders is here live. dan abrams here with the first one. it deals with fox news and greta van susteren. she left the network earlier this month, and she's taking on her former bosses saying they failed to check roger ailes' sexual harassment allegations. this is something about the turnabout for greta. she has been defending ailes.
7:42 am
and also went after gretchen carson in multiple interviews, calling her a disgruntled employee, saying her allegations were wrong. for greta to now come forward and say, you know what, i didn't mean to defend him. i regret it, et cetera. that's a part of it. what about the part where you were attacking gretchen carlson? i think a more full and complete apology is really needed to turn the tides here. >> she said on facebook, i regret roger ailes was not supervised by those in a public corporation who had the duty to supervise him. will these comments affect ongoing litigation? >> look. i think she may end up having litigation. that feels like a copout. greta is a friend of mine. i have enormous respect for her. >> i do, too. >> the bottom line is to suggest she didn't know roger ailes had almost complete autonomy at fox news feels like a cop-out.
7:43 am
do what he wanted there. and she made comment after comment after comment supporting him, not just saying something like, you know what, i worked with him. he was always professional. i never saw anything like that. she went much further than that in her comments. it's a little bit tough for her to have it both ways. if she does end up in litigation with fox, a lot of the old statements will come back to haunt her. >> isn't her husband a lawyer? >> he is. a prominent lawyer. i think he's probably leading the charge on the legal front. >> we'll see what happens. thanks, dan. now to the concerning new report about parents' medical mistakes. the american academy of pediatrics, putting 2,100 parents to the test. finding more than 80% of them made at least one dosing error when measuring liquid medication defended for children. dr. jennifer ashton is going to talk about this. jen, when you see these numbers, 68%. researchers discover 68% of the
7:44 am
led to an overdose. this is startling information. >> absolutely, robin. and here's the actual study. it occurred in the premier journal of pediatrics. and some context here. we have heard there have been issues with dosing, particularly liquid medications for kids because they come mostly in that liquid form. so this study really sought to further define the labeling and the dosing. and to some extent literacy. do we need labels in spanish? do parents really understand decimal points and milliliters? that can be hard to understand. and the results as you mentioned, almost 85% made one or more errors, and 68% made overdosing errors. this is a wakeup call. we have to do better. this could be a life or death situation. >> what can parents do to get it right? >> i think the first thing, ask, ask, ask, ask your pediatrician. ask the pharmacist. make sure you understand what the correct dose for your child is. and ask to see it.
7:45 am
that is key. the visual on those syringes is important. and then account for that spitting up. kids will often spit up the m medication, and keep a med record. that can be very helpful. >> thank you, jen. move to a big week for uber. looks like they're set to debut self-driving cars in pittsburgh. this will be the first time the technology has been available to the general public. becky worley is here with more. people saying it's way too soon. >> robots are coming, ah! uh, yeah. the idea of an autonomous driving car freaking people out a little bit. let's break this down. three weeks ago, uber announcing self-driving cars would be coming to pittsburgh. "the times" now reporting that the rollout is imminent. any day now. the idea of 100 autonomous vehicles cruising the streets of steel city. residents are worried. why?
7:46 am
and no route notifications. and the mayor, bill peduto, saying, yeah, and? his direct quote saying, you can put up red tape or roll out the red carpet. i think this is worth hitting the brakes. this is not 100 robotic cars roaming pittsburgh. every car will have a driver in it, ready to take over as needed. not autonomous. >> who thinks this is a good idea? >> not for me. >> i mean, i have had -- >> you have to, becky. you're our tech person. >> for some of them, i'm perfectly happy to have no driver at all. >> i'm too much of a control freak. there is no way. >> i would get behind the wheel. >> most of them have been good. >> your rating just went down. >> exactly. >> thanks to all of our insiders, and coming up. there she is. miss america. arkansas' savvy shield. the thing that has everyone talking. the judges. we'll tell you why in just two minutes. come on back. come on back. just two minutes. come on back. pro golfer. , my psoriatic arthritis caused joint pain.

because when you're growing up, my mother and father were big on education. always reading books. there are a lot of kids that are in underserved communities and they don't have access to books. they don't have access to libraries. there is this amazing program by jetblue. they have vending machines for the kids in underserved communities like this one right here. jetblue. and, my friend, carrington, where is carrington? where is carrington? where is carrington? come on in here. yeah. [ cheers and applause ] all right. show me how it works. what do you do? >> first, you push this button. >> mm-hmm. >> then have you used a vending machine before? >> i have. >> okay, so then you push yes. >> okay. >> so then, you look down here. what's your age group? well -- older than that. we'll just say -- 10 to 14. 10 to 14. we'll say 10 to 14.
8:37 am
>> then you just pick one of these right here. >> oh, gosh. ooh. how about "on a clear day." >> and then you push select. >> and just like that? >> mm-hmm. >> oh, my gosh. carrington, can you get it for me? wow. so what do you like about this? >> oh, there's another one. >> there's another one. step into reading. what is it you like about this? >> it can help kids in need that can't get books from their school or something. >> you like to read? >> mm-hmm. >> well, you can have these two books. how about that? >> thank you. [ applause ] >> and where is -- come on. come up here. she's from jetblue. social responsibility. i feel like a giant already. here i am on the riser, even taller. come up here. come up here. so tell us how this program got started. >> we wanted to find a way to make a social impact and make a change. we surveyed our customers and crew members. we found out that education and
8:38 am
difference. and we decided to come up with a creative program. and soar with reading was born. and then, a few years ago, we decided to take it up a notch and we came up with the vending machines. so we put them where there's book deserts, where people can't buy books. >> your mom or someone is telling you to smile. she keeps going like this. is there a book battle you want to tell us about? >> it ended on the 31st of august. we allowed people to get on and vote for the next city to get the next 100,000 books. >> and where is that? >> we're excited about ft. lauderdale. >> ft. lauderdale. wow. and how many books? how many books have you all, do you think, that you have put into the hands of some kids? >> we have given out this year alone, we gave out 50,000 books in detroit, just through the vending machines. another 50,000 through our charity partners. we'll do another 100,000 in ft.
8:39 am
and what is it? what was it about the vending machine? why that kind of way of doing it? >> it gives kids the power of choice. no adult is telling them what book they have to take. they just go and take the book that they want to take. it allows the children really to take as many books as they want. it gives them the opportunity to share books and swap books with each other. >> i love that idea. >> some of the girls in detroit started a book club. >> did they real >> it was really cool. >> we'll have to have them on. this was my book. you pick what you want. how old are you? how do you like that?
