trump on and what trump said does not count as sexual assault. >> he apologized to me and i expect -- i accept his apology. and we are moving on. >> reporter: melania trump not only defends her husband, she goes on the attack. is it fair for the media to bring up bill clinton's past or for donald trump to bring up bill clinton's past? >> if they bring my past, not? >> so they're asking for it. >> they're asking for it. they started. >> reporter: the woman typically known to keep a low profile is no longer shying away from entering the fray. >> oh, poor melania. don't feel sorry for me. don't feel sorry for me. i can handle everything. >> reporter: per stand by her man position is somewhat reminiscent of hillary clinton in 1998 when her husband was president and faced accusations
7:33 am
in 1998 when her husband was president and faced accusations of sexual misconduct. >> this vast right wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. >> it was left wing and left wing media. >> reporter: the couple first met at a fashion week party in 1998. she told "harper's bazaar" she refused to give trump her phone number. instead s soon after. in 2005 they were married and a year later melania gave birth to their son barron. she's mostly stayed off the campaign trail to raise him until her most maligned appearance at the republican convention this summer. >> the only limit to your achievements -- >> the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them. >> and your willingness to work for them. >> reporter: since speechgate
7:34 am
limelyght. last week her legal team demanded an apology from "people" magazine disputing reporter natasha stoynoff's claims that sometime after she says she was assaulted by donald trump she bumped into melania on the treat in 2005 and had a conversation with her. >> i was never friend with her. i would not recognize her. >> reporter: so as the campaign wipeds down, mrs. trump is hoping to land some punches before the final bell. >> people won't want to go against him but my husband is re he tells as it is. >> reporter: according to "the new york times," trump's aides urged melania to show her support for her husband by doing a sit-down interview with trump. melania reportedly did not like that idea. in her interview with fox news she is very clear she is her own woman and no one will make her do anything she doesn't want to do. robin and george. >> okay, linsey, thanks very much. let's bring had cokie roberts to talk more about it. cokie, as linsey pointed out in the piece right there, real echoes of hillary clinton both
7:35 am
is how effective was it? >> probably not terribly effective in the same way that hillary clinton wasn't terribly effective in those interviews. i think that it's keeping the story alive for one thing but another is that melania trump in some ways is not terribly recognizable to a lot of voters. during the republican convention i interviewed a number of republican female delegates who basically said that they couldn't relate to her. she was too beautiful, see her as an authentic person in the same way that people see michelle obama, for instance. >> she was very much going after the accusers. it seems like that was part of the strategy in having her come out and speak, cokie. >> well, in some ways i think that -- that in some ways was her most effective part because it was about her as opposed to being about her husband where they went after me so why not.
7:36 am
put out nude pictures of her which is not terribly helpful to the campaign. >> i think the other part you would say to be effective is see her publicly accepting her husband's apology. >> well, which, of course, she did in the statement and now she's done publicly, as well but, again, i don't think that that is something that people would expect her to do anything else but accept his apology. but, you know, look, looking at voters who basically say they partisan electorate right now, what i do think might be true is that it might have energized some of hillary clinton's voters to say we don't want this man. >> i know, because martha raddatz was here picking up on what you were just saying, cokie, martha raddatz was here, she spoke to voters who basically said, it doesn't matter. it doesn't matter what he did. so as a bigger deal being made out of it than it really is? >> well, i think that -- no, i really don't think so.
7:37 am
are very firmly set in their place that it has started a national conversation, robin. >> true, true. >> that women are feeling a little empowered by saying this is -- this is not okay and there's a whole twitter site not okay with thousands of women on it now telling their own stories, so i think this has a life even beyond this campaign. >> yeah, the reaction has been break it down. all right, cokie, thanks so much. >> good to be with you. >> coming up on the big board? >> a lot. up next what fellow republicans are saying about donald trump's claims the election is rigged. and also what one guy did to get himself banned from the tennis court. wait till you see the caught on camera meltdown. all that coming up in just two minutes and we have mr. mcenroe to talk about that. >> patrick mcenroe. >> there he is over there.
7:38 am
a giant wooden tiger. well, the answer is that a real one would maul me. i've crafted dr. whiskers here as a visual aid to show you that should you visit the lot, carmax associates will not pounce like tigers because people don't like that. come here to buy a car. dr. whiskers won't pounce. nobody will. ? ? ? life can be messy... but with crayola color wonder... it doesn't have to be. color wonder. find it in the crayola aisle. sets each sold separately. if your sneezes are a force to be reckoned with... you may be muddling through allergies. try zyrtec? for powerful allergy relief. and zyrtec? is different than claritin?. because it starts working faster on the first day you take it.
7:39 am
7:40 am
patrick mcenroe. we're talking about the '91 u.s. open, go figure. >> thanks for the memories. >> welcome back. time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's top stories as we said, patrick mcenroe is here at the table. we'll get to mac in just a moment. let's start with donald trump. ramping up those allegations that the presidential election is rigged. overnight at a rally in green bay, wisconsin, again hammering home the claim. >> they even want the election at the polling booths and believe me, there's a lot going on. did you ever hear of these people. they say there's nothing going on. people that have died ten years ago are still voting. illegal immigrants are voting. i mean, where are the street smarts of some of these politicians? >> and we got jon karl joining us now from the battleground state of florida which was the e epicenter of the last presidential election controversy. and don't have to tell you,
7:41 am
>> oh, he is up obsessed with this everywhere he is talking about this. this morning he is still tweeting about it and this is a bedrock principle of american democracy, the peaceful transition of power, the integrity of our election systems. he is saying that they don't have integrity, so i asked one of the republican leaders he's talking about last night, i moderated a debate here in florida last night between the senate candidates and asked marco rubio about this. listen to his response. >> question about the legitimacy of this election. donald trump has said this election is absolutely being rigged. >> this election is not being rigged and i'll explain to you why it's not in florida and why i hope he stops saying that. why he should stop saying that. we have 67 counties in this state. each of which conduct their own elections. i promise you there is not a 67-county conspiracy to rig this election. >> well, and that -- >> here's noerz thing, robin,
7:42 am
election officials in much of the country are republicans, fact, in the two biggest battleground states, ohio and florida, the two top election officials are republicans. >> but, jon, what do they do to ensure the elections are fair and because of what donald trump is saying do you think this year they're extra careful? >> reporter: oh, yes, i think there will be an eagle eye on all of the election largely because of what donald trump is saying but really this was the case before donald trump uttered the word the florida recount in 2000, believe me, after that process, people did a big scrub of the election process, teams of lawyers for both parties, this is something that has been looked at very carefully for a long time. >> good point there, jon. >> all right. well, thank you, jon. now to outrage over a 911 dispatcher accused of hanging up on more than 800 emergency calls. she's now facing two misdemeanor
7:43 am
come legal analyst areva martin joining us now. investigators say she may have hung up on even more callers than the 800 they know about including one that ended in a fatality, but have you ever heard of anything like this? >> no, michael. this is an outrageous case. this woman crenshanda williams may have hung up on thousands of callers and as you said two really serious cases, one involving an armed robbery where there was a fatal shooting and became unconscious. her husband's calling 911 talking to miss williams trying to administer cpr and she hangs up on him. now, fortunately for this woman, she's revived and she has survived this ordeal. but these are very serious accusations against someone who was entrusted with a very serious job of providing emergency assistance and she just said she didn't have time for the callers.
7:44 am
two misdemeanor charges. what do you make of that? >> well, i think the law that's being used to prosecute miss williams wasn't really designed for someone in her situation. it wasn't designed for a dispatcher whose job was to provide assistance. but at least she is facing some jail time. possibly up to a year and her supervisors are also being disciplined. >> boy, that's the last thing you expect when you call 911. >> areva, thank you. we move on to the controversy surround a top ranked it australia's nick kyrgios banned the rest of the season when he seemingly just quit during a match. take a look. doesn't even try for it. so, patrick mcenroe, let's talk -- >> horrendous. >> you played at the top level. sport if thank you for saying
7:45 am
okay. >> not at all. when you see something like that -- >> well, your first reaction is one of disgust and disdain, okay, but then when you take a step back i think you have to realize that this really in a lot of ways from kyrgios was a cry for help. i mean to hit a serve like this, to literally tap the serve as he did is basically telling everyone that i don't care. i don't want to be here. i want no part of competing in this match. this guy has a history of doing things like this. let's also say that he's a very talented player. he's got some personality. he could be a grand slam champion if he gets his act together so i think the atp tour did the right thing, they banned him for the rest of this year but gave him an option that if he goes to see a sports psychologist and gets some help which i believe he needs that he could get the ban reduced and be ready to play at the australian open start of next year. i think that was the right decision by the tour. >> maybe that will take him to the next level. >> it should. it could and i think for him he's got to look in the mirror
7:46 am
has said in some facebook comments and some twitter comments that he realizes he made a big mistake because initially he was yelling at people in the crowd. people were saying you be a professional out there. he yelled at the people in the crowd. he yelled at the chair umpires and said get me out of here as quickly as i can. i mean, michael, can you imagine you letting a running back just go -- just right past you. >> no. >> no, i don't think so. >> not on purpose. >> that's what this guy did, did it on purpose. >> you think it's a bigger issue here. >> there's a bigger issue that he has and i think we need -- he needs to understand that there are consequences for his actions but he also needs to understand -- we need to understand in the tennis world this guy needs some help and we should give him some help. >> hopefully he'll heed the advice and can end up being a great player you said he could be. now, thank you, pat, areva and jon, thank you all so much.

diabetes and exercise and why when you work out really matters. abc's chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser joining us now with that and let's say we're talking about type 2 diabetes. >> exactly, exactly. >> you got nearly 10% of americans have this and one this three are sort of so-called prediabetics so that's a lot of people right there. how much exercise do people need to reduce this risk. >> so this is really interesting. they looked at 28 studies that followed thousands of people over many years to try to address that and wha five times a week which is recommended, it greatly reduces the amount -- your risk of getting type 2 diabetes. if you do more than that your risk goes down even further but what really grabbed me was that if you do less, if you do only ten minutes a day you get some benefit compared to people who do nothing so every bit helps. you shouldn't be put off by the fact i don't have enough time. >> more is more and timing was also very important in the study, correct?
8:15 am
diabetes. you got your 30 minute, do it as one block or break it up. so they had people for one period of time do it in one block of 30 minutes and the other they did ten minutes right after eating a meal and when they found if you do the ten minutes just go for a ten-minute walk after you eat your meal it greatly reduces blood sugar, 22% lower blood sugar with just a ten-minute walk. >> the science behind common sense. >> is that just because your engine so t and processing food better. >> walking helps you digest but it's controlled by ins wlin and when you exercise it helps our cells use the insulin and also causes our muscles to burn up that sugar so, you know, there's good reasons for why that bounces out your sugar and a great thing to do. >> in addition to exercise what else can people do. >> we talk about it all the time. if you can maintain a healthy weight or if you're overweight losing just 5% of your body
8:16 am
having type 2 diabetes. it's hard to do but it's really worth that effort. >> all of it doable too. >> it is. >> even a little bit of exercise. even a little bit of weight. >> getting a partner for both of those is a great way to get started. it really helps your chances of succeeding. >> good information. thanks. coming up we'll hear from maks. he's joining us live. he's off the ballroom getting
