tv   Good Morning America  ABC  April 15, 2016 7:00am-9:00am EDT

7:00 am
you see the sun rising up over flushing bay. right over the throggs neck and whitestone bridge going to be absolutely gorgeous today. just beautiful sunshine. and temperature gets to 63- degrees this afternoon. and we're going to be looking at just gorgeous sunny weather right on through into you know the weekend. we're looking at temperatures that will warm on up to 70 by the time we get to sunday. here's your accuweather seven day forecast. 76 to 80 on monday. nice. >> that's so nice. >> yeah. >> we'll take it. >> makes you smile. that will do it for us, i'm lori stokes. good morning, america. the democrats brawl in brooklyn. >> i love being in brooklyn. this is great. >> their most personal yet. hillary clinton and bernie sanders. >> i do question her junlt. >> i've been called a lot of things in my life. that was a first.
7:01 am
sanders promising to fight to the finish. protests erupt at a republican event overnight as donald trump faces a new fight and lands a big endorsement this morning. emergency landing. >> we have an emergency inbound. >> a jet full of passengers forced to land overnight when a bird strikes the cockpit cracking the windshield. the very latest on the terrifying midair incident. one of the killers behind the charles manson murders about to go free. leslie van houten recommended for parole 46 years after a brutal murder. the victim's family fighting back and speaking out this morning. hot pursuit on a high-wire. a chimp on the loose for hours after escaping from the zoo. the chase unfolding on live tv. how chacha broke free and zookeepers finally brought him down back safely. don't worry. chacha is fine. amy was concerned.
7:02 am
>> that's right. good morning, america, and, yes, the picture of the morning, the >> unbelievable. look at him. it's like curious george. >> kind of a big curious george. >> yeah, he is, okay. >> there was, as we said, a happy ending to that boy, not a lot of happiness on stage at the democratic debate last night. they were angry. crucial new york primary just four days away. polls show a healthy lead in new york for hillary. nationally though a dead heat. >> because a new national poll shows her just two points ahead of bernie sanders after holding a 13-point lead last month. abc's cecilia vega is here with more on that and the highlights from last night's debate. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. they have known each other for decades but if what happened on that stage last night is any indication, bernie sanders and hillary clinton are no longer friends. there was bickering, shouting, dirty looks, the mean streets of new york came to life on that stage.
7:03 am
royale. on their home turf. >> i love being in brooklyn. this is great. >> a statement -- excuse me. >> reporter: a brooklyn brawl. >> interesting comment but you didn't answer the question. >> i did. >> no, you didn't. i think i have the microphone -- >> reporter: from the stare-down yelling. >> i am sure a lot of people are very surprised to learn that you supported raising the minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour. >> you know, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait, wait, come on. i have stood on the debris stage times. thing. >> senator, please. >> reporter: the showdown starting just about as soon as they faced off. >> does secretary clinton have the experience and the intelligence to be a president, of course, she does, but i do question -- [ cheers ] but i do question her judgment.
7:04 am
i've been called a lot of things in my life. that was a first. the people of new york voted for me twice to be their senator from new york. [ cheers and applause ] and president obama trusted my judgment enough to ask me to be secretary of state. >> reporter: clinton also hammering down on sanders' plan to break up the big banks, questioning whether he has details. >> he could not explain how that would be done. he could not answer about afghanistan, about israel, about counterterrorism. i think you need to have the judgment on day one to be both president and commander in chief. >> reporter: and she was put on the hot seat herself refusing to commit to releasing those transcripts of her paid speeches to wall street firms. >> it is your democratic opponent and many democratic voters who want to see those transcripts. it's not about the republicans. >> everybody does it, okay, i
7:05 am
expect the same standard on tax returns. >> reporter: this was definitely a debate unlike any other. sanders needs a landslide victory here in new york to help his chances of winning the nomination and he's now taking some heat for heading to the vatican for a conference right after that debate ended. he landed there this morning. hillary clinton is leaving town too, robin. she is heading to california for a big weekend of fund-raisers with the clooneys. >> not a day off for any of the candidates, it seems. >> or us. >> that's true. >> or our political team. jon karl and matthew dowd here with me and, matthew, we got a lot of shouting. the candidates seem to be getting pretty tired of each other. the big question, did anything change after last night. >> what i recall is the last time there was that much shouting in brooklyn, ralph kramden and alice were involved in "the honeymooner." >> i was wondering which tv show you would go to. >> i think that debate highlighted bernie sanders' authenticity and it highlighted hillary clinton's competency and
7:06 am
i don't know how much the debate will move that but i think the race is closing and i think sanders has an outside chance of winning the new york primary. >> it is a must win for bernie sanders. >> reporter: it absolutely as cecilia said he not only needs to win in new york, he needs to win in a landslide to catch up in the delegates but, look, bernie sanders last night looked and sounded like a candidate who really believes he can win this thing. going after hillary clinton in a way that was much more personal, almost contemptuous of her. the bottom line here for hillary clinton is she took some serious shots from bernie sanders and had to go back at him in a way that's going to make it harder for her to eventually get those sanders supporters if and when she gets the nomination. >> the question i want to bring to matthew dowd. we've seen that on the republican side. real acrimony. really saw it bubble up. how hard will it be for the democrats to come back together? >> there is a huge emotional rift but there's also a huge demographic rift with older
7:07 am
younger voters being on the other. i think the best healing balm for a party that's in a rift is the common enemy and i think that's their hope whether it's donald trump or ted cruz, that that common enemy will unite the party. >> which is why hillary clinton is running ads against trump in new york. thanks very much. to robin. >> all right, george, now to the republicans. all three presidential candidates under one roof last night speaking at a gop gala here in manhattan as hundreds of protesters gathered outside. there's a new national poll out showing donald trump with a double-digit lead. abc's tom llamas is at trump international with the latest. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, donald trump woke up this morning to some very good news. "the new york post" a newspaper which has had so much fun with him over the years now endorcing him for president. one of his hometown papers. you mentioned those high poll numbers but trump's rivals are not surrendering new york. this as trump is now dealing with another problem, what he's describing as a group of
7:08 am
this morning, a new fight for donald trump that's coming straight from the boardroom. >> come on, time is money. >> reporter: a group of "apprentice" alumni like kwame jackson and terra disavowing the front-runner who they once vowed to fight for. >> i do not think he's qualified or competent or knows the issues. >> the rhetoric we've heard is not only hateful but dangerous. >> reporter: trump responding saying total dishonesty and disloyalty. they should be careful or i'll play hours of footage individually praising me. ask how successful they've been since they left. six failing wanna-bes out of hundreds of contestants. so sad. in new york, trump helping raise money for local republicans while at the same time criticizing the national party for running a, quote, rigged system when it comes to delegates. >> i'm right now millions of
7:09 am
rival, millions of votes. you know, people don't talk about votes anymore. they talk delegates. by the way, i happen to be hundreds of delegates ahead too. >> reporter: senator ted cruz also in new york playing along on the late night circuit in that's a very generous offer, donald. i appreciate you being the bigger man. >> oh, i'm the bigger man with the bigger hands. >> reporter: the interview taking a turn when cruz was pressed about supporting trump if he becomes the nominee. >> i am working very, very hard not to have to answer that question. >> but you do, right? you have to? >> i agree i have to beat him in cleveland. >> reporter: now all three of the republican candidates have spent a lot of time here in new york city but today they're hitting the other corners of the state as they get ready for tuesday's new york primary. george. >> thanks, tom. more on this from the chair of the republican national committee reince priebus.
7:10 am
thanks for joining us. you heard donald trump complaining about the rigged rules on the republican side. he also has an op-ed in this morning's "wall street journal." here's what he says. what we are seeing now is not a proper use of the rues but a flag grant abuse of the rules. delegates are supposed to reflect the decisions of voters but the system is being rigged by party operatives with double agent delegates who reject the decision of voters. your response? >> well, look, the rules were put out there over a year ago. it's up to the campaigns to understand them, so in a vote system, depending on the outcome of the vote candidates receive delegates. those candidates must vote for that candidate, for that winner, so they're actually bound to vote for the winner, nothing is being taken away. and then when those elections happen for who those delegates are in those states, that's the process of the campaigns
7:11 am
wins those elections and who doesn't is up to the campaigns to make sure that those people win and that's what he's complaining about. >> mr. trump also writing that he wants to reform the system, wants to work with you to reform the system. do you think the system needs reform and have you spoken with mr. trump about it? >> well, i mean the system has been around for a long time. it was good enough for abraham lincoln. i think it's good enough for whoever our nominee is going to be. so, look, this is democracy in action. both political parties use a similar system. the other piece of this is that this is a convention and i think that we're losing sight of what the word convention actually means. it is a coming together of our party members to write rules of our party, to elect officers, that's what conventions are. >> you say it's a coming together. it sounds like it's going to be a breaking apart. >> no, you know what i mean. it's the coming together of
7:12 am
elect officers. and that's what we're doing. >> but meantime, the democrats are making hay of this. the chair debbie wasserman shults saying they are in a civil war food fight. at the end of their convention the republican party will not be the republican party of today and will likely blow themselves to smithereens. aren't you worried about a convention where no no one ishappy. >> debbie doesn't have any room to talk. they're gouging each other's eyes out and the director of the fbi is reviewing a possible indictment of hillary clinton. so, i mean, i don't think she's got anywhere to talk but, no, it isn't easy. i'm not trying to claim it isn't and there is drama but that's what our party needs to do, come together, pick a nominee, come together and put our eye on the prize which is the white house but we're having a conversation who that person will be and it hasn't happened potentially since 1940. we'll see. >> mr. chairman, thanks for
7:13 am
>> boy, you know, this long fight taking a toll on all sides. >> it really is, george. now to that scary moment in the air. a plane forced to make an emergency landing after a bird hit the windshield. abc's linzie janis joins us now with the latest. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the majority of bird strikes happen on takeoff or landing, but this one apparently hitting midflight forcing the pilot to take immediate action. >> we have an emergency inbound. >> reporter: a heart-stopping moment for the 57 passengers aboard a delta flight from laguardia to nashville. >> emergency is a cracked windshield. >> reporter: the plane forced to make an emergency landing after a bird struck the aircraft cracking the windshield. >> birds and aircraft, you know, share the same airspace so these things are bound to happen. get your heart beating fast. >> reporter: bird strikes on aircraft are a growing problem as bird populations soar.
7:14 am
at heathrow airport with 71 passengers, this egypt air boeing 737 damaged its nose when a flock flew into it. >> there was a huge bang, a boom sound on the left side. >> reporter: and a bird caused an engine fire on this jetblue flight from san juan to jfk. the takeoff suddenly aborted. >> flight 704 left engine. >> reporter: all 186 passengers and crew deplaning out the slide. fortunately no injuries to anyone on board that delta flight but thanks to those soaring bird populations, bird strikes are now three times more likely than they were 30 years ago. george. >> wow, i didn't know that. okay, thanks very much. there are new questions for the nba as the league's owners meet to consider moving next year's all-star game from charlotte, north carolina. calls for a boycott after a law which critics say discriminates

cutting off power and water to thousands of people and the violent shaking lasted nearly 30 seconds forcing i'm to duck for cover including noel vincent a american teacher living in japan. >> suddenly we felt the floor drop beneath us. my first reaction was to protect my friends. we linked arms then we tried to stay clear of the ceiling because things had begun to fall. >> reporter: so far nearly 50,000 people have been evacuated around the area. and new tensions with china this morning as defense second ash carter visits a u.s. aircraft carrier in the disputed south china sea. this follows the announcement that the u.s. is sending fighter jets to the philippines and boosting its alliance with that country conducting joint patrols. the move sparked a protest from beijing. a legal victory for families of the children killed in the newtown, connecticut, school shooting. a judge ruled their lawsuit against the company that made the rifle used in the attack can

7:31 am
four days away. clinton has a big lead but nationally a dead heat and this morning a massive rescue earthquake hit. at least nine people killed. mo are delay thousand injured. the search for survivors right now. there is a guy that tried to paddle from florida to bermuda. he called himself captain bubble. it again. journey coming up. >> didn't work out so well for him the last time. all right. first, the latest on a woman convicted in the charles manson murders who could soon be going free. leslie van houten was the youngest of the manson followers convicted in the 1969 killings and now a california review board is recommending her for parole. abc's matt gutman is in los angeles with more. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. leslie van houten was a 19-year-old homecoming queen when she met charles manson. she's been behind bars for the last 4 1/2 decades after
7:32 am
killing of a couple here in los angeles, but this morning, she's one major step closer to freedom. overnight charles manson follower leslie van houten recommended for parole. for years van houten was locked behind bars for her participation in the murders of leno and rosemary labianca and her attorney arguing that she's been a model prisoner and poses no threat to the public. >> they called her an e.xemplary inmate and earned her masters degree in the last two years. >> she's now 66 years old but in the 1960s just a teenager. a homecoming queen who sang at her church choir before she linked up with manson. >> and when you first saw him? >> i felt that i had met someone that by being around him would have a positive change. >> reporter: decades after the
7:33 am
with abc's diane sawyer about the night that she and several other manson followers savagely attacked and murdered the labiancas in their california home in 1969. >> and then tex turned me around and handed me the knife and he said, do something and i stabbed mrs. labianca in the lower back about 16 times. >> what kind of punishment do you deserve? what is enough? >> i don't know when enough punishment will be enough for me. >> reporter: that sentiment shared by many including the l.a. district attorney and the couple's daughter, telling abc news overnight we do not think anybody who commits the kind of crimes that she and the others did should ever be paroled. van houten's parole has been denied 19 times over the past 45 years but on thursday, she said, i don't let myself off the hook. i don't find parts of any of in that make me feel the slightest bit good about myself.
7:34 am
hasn't had a serious rule violation in 46 years. the same can't be said of manson who is now 81 years old. he and others involved in the killings are still behind bars. but van houten's release isn't a done deal. she still has to go before the governor and another parole board who could decide to keep her in prison. robin. >> all right, matt. thank you. we'll talk to abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams about that very thing that matt was allowing to because bruce davis who was an associate with manson was denied parole even though he was recommended for parole governor brown rejected that. what are the chances he'll do that here? >> close, close case here. she's got a better argument than even bruce davis meaning she was younger, has done more in prison. taken more responsibility for what she did. so if you think that people should ever be paroled for murder and parole was part of her sentence, the possibility for parole then she's done everything right.
7:35 am
she hasn't had problems and helped other prisoners, everything on the list to parole someone leslie van houten can check off and, yet, as a political matter, how could it help the governor to release a manson follower? so it's a very tough situation here and i think in the end a close call for him. >> 19 times we heard in that report she's been denied and get it this time. what's the next step here. >> the next step first of all there is a legal review board that's first going to have to go through it. assuming that they sign off, which we expect they would it ends up on the governor's desk. one of the things the governor could do is not review it at all and just say i'm not going to take any action, as a result that means she does get parole. >> we have to remember the victims' families. >> and they feel very strongly none of them should be released. >> thank you, dan. we move on to the last-ditch effort to save johnny manziel. with the football star in a downward spiral his high-powered agent is cutting him off saying he'll reconsider if he gets
7:36 am
seems like everyone close to manziel is hoping tough love will work. >> they are, indeed. unfortunately, this is just the latest bad headline for him who was released by the browns last month and has since been seen partying across the country. this morning embattled quarterback johnny manziel fired by his second agent in less than three months. nfl super agent drew rosenhaus terminating his contract with the former qb this week saying he will take manziel back only in the 23-year-old enters treatment in the next five days. >> at this point i don't have a choice because this situation is spiraling downward and i'm doing the last-ditch effort that i can think of right now to help him. i'm not going to be a part of a young man destroying his life. it's just not going to happen on my watch. >> reporter: the former heisman winner who spent ten weeks in rehab after his rookie nfl season has been seen partying and drinking in various videos

7:38 am
him, begged him to do this. >> and manziel had no comment on this story. his agent says that if the former star could get control of his life, he still has a brilliant future ahead of him. >> but as you said even his family extremely concerned. >> yeah. thanks. coming up, look at this chimp. great escape. swings from power lines and how officials finally got chacha to safety. a parenting alert after this video of a principal paddling a child goes viral. the investigation this morning. or wonder whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. because today there's harvoni. a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who've had no prior treatment.

8:13 am
the magazine, i got picked on a lot for being pale when i was younger and that really shook me up and reveals that loving her body wasn't always easy saying, for a good six years i wore sweat pants and sweatshirts even on vacation in 90-degree weather. i was hiding. i want to hug that girl. i want to tell her you're okay. last february she sat down with abc's dan harris and revealed it was her hit single -- i'm all about that bass >> reporter: "all about that bass" that helped her do that. >> this is what i felt like. all about the bass and all about my curves. this is not how i feel. >> reporter: now the 22-year-old pop star isn't shying away from her curves. >> the one thing about my body i love are my curves. they loom bomb on tv. >> reporter: deciding to no longer wear corsets to her photo shoots. she says my body's bomb. it was nice to finally be like, no thanks.
8:14 am
her body a little bit more. she says she likes tight dresses that really show off her curves and she's really owning who these. you need to let it go >> reporter: and no longer holding back. telling the world, i want to show off what i got. no no no >> reporter: she says part of her newfound confidence comes from saying positive things about herself and her body out loud and while she was writing "all about thats about" it was out of a desire to hear a song about her own insecurities and she has helped countless others embracing their bass. >> thank you. over to robin. all right, george, now to that medical warning making headlines this morning for the millions of americans who take heartburn medication. a new study links some to serious kidney damage when taken long term. dr. jennifer ashton joins us from l.a. with more on this. good to see you, jen and people want to know about this but what kind of heartburn medications
8:15 am
type of damage can they do? >> well, robin, this is really a story and a study about striking that fine balance between risks and benefits. now, there are two classes of heartburn medication, one is called h2 blockers, the other is called ppi or proton pump inhibitors. that's what this study the latest of which was really about. it found that people taking ppis, poe ton pump inhibitors for a long period of time, it was associated with an increase risk of chronic kidney disease, in some cases even kidney failure. so this doesn't mean those medications can't be safe and effective, it just means awareness because over 15 million americans are on those medications and they are available over the counter as well as by prescription. >> and, jen, as you know, these medications have been out there for a very long time. so why are we just hearing about this now and could it potentially cause other damage? >> well, you know, robin, i really think this is a blessing
8:16 am
and science, we should always be reassessing data. they have been out for a long time and in general this class of medication is considered safe and effective. but that doesn't mean we don't always reask questions, look at data and re-evaluate things. that's what medicine and science is about. now, when you talk about risks of this class of medication, there have been associated findings that show they're associated with vitamin deficiencies, a b12 deficiency, in some cases magazinenesium deficiency, anemia, heart issues, bone fractures or osteoporosis but there are benefits and they are safe and effective but talking about heartbun or g.i. reflux, it's very uncomfortable. i've had it myself and if untreated, that acid can actually cause some serious damage to the lower esophagus causing a precancerous or even cancerous condition of the esophagus so it's about finding that balance.
8:17 am
you're hearing this and you're like, you know what, i'm going to stop taking these medications, what are some things you can do when it comes to heartburn? >> again, this is another blessing from this story is people are put on medications, i see this all the time and then they stay on them indefinitely or forever when that might not be clinically or medically necessary. if you're on this class of medication even if it's over the counter you want to talk to the doctor or the health care professional that suggested you are on it and never stop a that physician. >> and if you don't want to take the medication but you want to do some other things to combat heartburn? >> quick and easy lifestyle things, eat smaller meals in some cases weight loss can help. avoiding alcohol or your trigger foods, that can always be helpful. >> you have a good time there in los angeles. >> thank you, robin. thank you. >> let's get to amy now. robin, now to the royal road trip, kate and will hiking this morning after a glamorous double date with the king and queen of
8:18 am
up about their trip and how much they miss george and charlotte. abc's lama hasan has all the details from london now. good morning, lama. >> reporter: and good morning to you, amy. you know, yes, after that private dinner with the king and queen of bhutan there was no rest for william and kate. oh, no, they were up at the crack of dawn to go on that grueling six-hour hike to see a stunning buddhist monastery. this morning, william and kate taking a romantic royal hike up this glorious mountain on the trail to see the ancient tiger's nest monastery built into the side of a cliff 10,000 feet above sea level. kate donning knee high boots and leather vest, william wiping sweat from his brow, not kate, she appeared unfazed by the intense trek. soaking in the stunning scenery instead. but a week-long trip without their two little ones in tow is beginning to take its toll. >> i'm looking forward to seeing them but they're in good hands.
8:19 am
duchess of cambridge stepping out for a private dinner with the king and queen of but tanner. kate wearing a beautifully embroidered tory burch dress retailing at just over $1400. and, boy, did she wear it well. the royals making the most of their trip to bhutan jumping in and trying a game of archery, kate firing her arrow and misses the target. william wasn't much better at it either. throughout their whirlwind tour of india and bhutan the royal duo have been dazzling their hosts and wowing the crowd at every event, not putting a foot wrong and perhaps the most anticipated moment will be at the majestic taj mahal where william's late mother princess diana was famously photographed in 1992. >> you didn't need to hear any words to get the message that she was alone, she was unhappy. but that she still looked like a
8:20 am
taj mahal. >> i think what he and kate really want to do is to create their own memory, to create new memories. >> reporter: so the question everybody wants to know the answer to is will william and kate sit on that iconic bench just as diana did 24 years ago? well, the jury is still out but we all are learning some new information this morning. reportedly what the bute tanneries women were singing to prince william during that archery contest to distract their rival, they were apparently singing to him "you're bold, you're a baldie, your nose is really big" as well as other obscenities and kate being stunned by this but in the end taking it pretty well. >> my jaw dropped when that information came across the wires. what was their reaction and by the way, who had to deliver that news to them, the translation? >> reporter: well, i think kate
8:21 am
given this verse and, of course, there was a still of her looking really shocked but in the end she said it was all for a laugh and that's what they traditionally do, amy. >> all right, handling it with grace once again, lama, thanks so much. probably better than i would have handled it. you can see more of the best moments from the royal trip on our website, on yahoo! >> can you imagine, amy? >> oh, my gosh. >> i didn't know that i would have handled -- all right. let's go outside to ginger. >> oh, amy, you know i always come out here and canvass the crowd for the best energy.
