7:00 am
good morning, america. donald trump takes aim at hillary clinton. >> and the last person hillary clinton wants to face is me and i mean i know that for a fact. >> as he backs out of the next debate his chief rival says he's ducking him and the president prepares for an epic showdown over his supreme court nominee. breaking news, seaworld's stunning announcement, the end of the orca shows. the park now partnering with the humane society. the tides now shifting. is this the end of shamu? family first. a major league star drops a baseball bombshell walking away from his team and $13 million after management stopped him from taking his son to work. did the team go too far? a royal exclusive. prince harry one-on-one revealing the mission that's changing his life. >>
7:01 am
someone who should be dead run the 100 meters. you want a definition of inspiration, that's probably it. the moment he says almost broke him and why he's being called air legend this morning. and good morning, america. you really enjoyed your time with the prince, didn't you? >> i certainly did. was there last week, spent time with him at his childhood home which is also his current home kensington palace but why he's so passionate about the invictus games coming up. where are our manners. top of the morning to you. happy st. patrick's day and a great crowd with us decked out in green getting in the spirit. >> wow, they are not kidding around. a factoid americans are expected to spent $4.4 billion to celebrate. >> is that all in beer or -- >> that's a lot of green beer. >> exactly. >> corned beef, too. >> true. that is all coming up.
7:02 am
white house and donald trump focusing on hillary clinton. she's fighting back and abc's cecilia vega is here with the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. with hillary clinton and donald trump inching closer to those nominations this is starting to sound like a general election fight and the gloves are off. overnight, donald trump targeting the democrats, one in particular. >> the last person hillary clinton wants to face is me. and i mean i know that for a fact. >> reporter: trump releasing this video focusing on hillary clinton, mocking her as a weak leader in foreign affairs showing her barking like a dog. clinton hitting right back in a fund-raising e-mail sent to supporters overnight calling trump a fearmonger saying he would be a dangerous president. we can't risk it. this on the heels of trump refusing to participate in what was supposed to be the next gop debate next week in utah. that prompted ohio governor john kasich to bail too, fox news saying obviously there needs to be more
7:03 am
the salt lake city debate can canceled. >> he could have had a direct debate with me and yet donald apparently is ducking. he is afraid of being challenged. the closer we get to a one-on-one battle, the worst donald trump does. >> reporter: well, trump says, quote, we've had enough debates. he says he's going to give a major speech that day instead. hillary clinton not backing down either in that fund-raising e-mail she said after tuesday's big win, she's sure he is starting measuring the drapes in the white house hoping to take him on and hoping to raise cash off a potential donald trump nomination. >> thanks very much. all right, george, now to the other huge political showdown. president obama naming his choice for the supreme court nominating 63-year-old appeals judge merrick garland but republicans vowing not to take action. abc's terry moran is at the supreme court for us right now. good morning, terry good morning good morning. the stakes couldn't be higher politically. this is the showdown
7:04 am
it'll spill in the presidential campaign and here at the court they are he shorthanded right now and the fight to replace justice scalia could tip the balance of the court for decades. now the battle lines are clear. the president versus the senate republicans. >> i have fulfilled my constitutional duty. now it's time for the senate to do theirs. >> it's the senate's constitutional right to act as a check on a president and withhold its consent. >> reporter: late yesterday a few cracks in the gop wall. some senators say they will meet with judge garland but others as abc's mary bruce learned are adamant. >> any chance of changing your mind? >> none. >> are you any more open to -- >> reporter: merrick garland is 63 years old, one of the oldest nominees ever. a highly regarded judge for 18 years and before that a top federal prosecutor. garland was there in oklahoma city in 1995 as seen here in a ne
7:05 am
the prosecution of timothy mcveigh, a death penalty case. >> i have this deep feeling about the rule of law. >> reporter: meanwhile, the white house launched a massive pr effort led by this video with family photos and an emotional interview. >> and my father would be very proud. >> reporter: judges aren't supposed to campaign for the supreme court. it's bad form so merrick garland will have to walk a fine line but make no mistake, president obama and the democrats are going to pull out all the stops, put as much pressure on republicans to get him through. >> let's talk to jon karl about it and, jon, let's talk about the senate republicans first. mitch mcconnell hard line not even going to meet with merrick garland but as terry reported some republican senators will meet with him. does that indicate a sign that this could actually go to a hearing? >> i don't think so, george. you do have about ten republican senators who now say they're willing to at least have a face-to-face meeting with judge garland but they are doing that, they've made explicit, most of
7:06 am
them, as a courtesy and indicated there is no chance that they would change their mind on this. the republicans i have spoken to and i've spoken to several republican senator, say that garland would alter the balance of the supreme court. they do not believe and will not agree to even a hearing before the election. >> one of the big questions now, how much of a campaign issue this becomes both in the presidential election, also in these key senate elections. >> reporter: the white house is doing an all-out campaign. you'll sigh a war room here to try to put pressure on republicans that are up for re-election facing tough races and there are several of them, george. they want to either at least pressure them to give garland a hearing or to make them pay a price for denying him. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. >> interesting days and weeks ahead. now to the latest on that american student behind bars in north korea after attempting to steal a political poster. the 21-year-old breaking down in court after a judge sentenced him to 15 years of hard labor. abc's bob woodruff is following the story and joins us from beijing, good morning,
7:07 am
robin. yes, this was a brutal sentence, 15 years in prison just for removing a propaganda poster from a hotel and almost any other country, this would be no more than a minor misdemeanor. but with this conviction, his fate is unclear. this morning, 21-year-old otto warmbier is behind bars in north korea sentenced to 15 years in a north korean prison with hard labor. a visibly shaken warmbier paraded before cameras speaking at his trial wednesday which only lasted one hour. >> i would used and manipulated. plea please. please save my life. >> reporter: warmbier was found guilty of what the government calls subversion, part of the u.s. hostile policy towards north korea. in court they showed this video accusing warmbier of trying to steal a political banner from an area off-limits to foreigners. at the hotel where he was
7:08 am
staying with with a tour group. two weeks ago warmbier tearfully spoke at a government arranged press conference. >> i have made the worst mistake of my life. >> reporter: his family enlisting the help of former governor bill richardson, the veteran diplomat, meeting face-to-face with north korean diplomats tuesday. >> he did a college prank, a mistake. but 15 years to be sentenced, that's crazy. hopefully now after this sentencing it'll mean negotiations can start on his release on humanitarian grounds. >> reporter: now those kinds of negotiations have borked in the past. about a dozen american tourists have been arrested there since 2009. all of them eventually released. hopefully that will happen again soon. robin, george. >> yes, hopefully that will happen. >> you see the agony in his face. >> we move on to the big breaking news about seaworld. the marine park is partnering with the humane society to end their killer whale shows sayin
7:09 am
their orcas are the last they'll keep in captivity. we have the story from ryan. >> a dramatic shift breaking this morning. seaworld's ceo announcing to orca breeding and shows. swimming in criticism for the last several years following the death of one of their whale trainers and the release of the documentary "blackfish." >> when you look into their eyes you know somebody is home. >> reporter: but this morning, seaworld's ceo announcing a change in the tides saying all of its signature orca shows will be coming to an end. >> current orcas under our care will be the last generation at seaworld and phase out our theatrical shows. we're ending breeding as of today. >> reporter: and now working with an unlikely ally, the humane society. previously one of seaworld's loudest critics. >> this is something that every animal advocate i
7:10 am
>> reporter: last year the 51-year-old company announcing it was shutting down their one ocean show in san diego. now other similar acts will follow suit by 2018 including in orlando where trainer dawn brancheau was killed in 2010 by the popular orca tilikum. you think they were the natural result of what happened in 2010? >> it's a lot of things that have happened. that was a very horrific moment for our company. dawn's death is something none of us will ever get over. >> reporter: the 29 killer whales in seaworlds will remain in captivity for their own safety. >> the best place for them is at seaworld. no whale born under human care has been released successfully. >> it's impossible to unring that bell. >> reporter: acknowledging "bla "blackfish" did have an effect. >> society has changed and i think we have to change with
7:11 am
this is the first step in a long partnership to help the whales. >> it's not perfect. we do have disagreements, but don't want the perfect to be the enemy of the good. >> we love them. we're trying to do the right thing for them. >> reporter: now, seaworld will now develop, quote, more natural orca encounters using technology to show how whales live and adding cons conservation messaging and they're hoping to become the largest rescue operation in the world. >> what a significant change. >> they needed to change with the times, they said. >> ryan, thanks very much. another change coming up. a major safety announcement. leading carmakers are saying automatic brake systems will become standard features in nearly all cars within the next several years. they added -- the added technology could potentially prevent thousands of crashes and save lives and david kerley is in virginia with the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we're at a ford dealership and like all new
7:12 am
20 of these cars have that technology today blue we learned the government will announce later today that within six years, nearly every one of the brand-new cars will have that new technology. one-third of all crashes is one of these, a rear ender. this morning the government will announce it hopes to cut those accidents dramatically with new technology. it's called auto braking. >> all right, i'm going to play the distracted driving. something we tried on a test track. so i'm getting really close to this obstacle and it just takes over everything. at least carmakers have committed to make auto breakers standard equipment on all cars in six years. in fact, some are already advertising their systems. >> auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection. >> reporter: the insurance institute says that auto braking on all vehicles could cut rear end collisions by 40% and front end crashes by 23%.
7:13 am
agree that by 2022 they'll make auto braking standard on car and midsize suvs and on large suvs and pickups by 2025. the head of auto safety for the government says it could be a game changer. >> 94% of the time humans are the problem. that's why technology is so exciting. it could save their life and the people around them. >> reporter: the government and carmakers agreeing to this, a deal avoids the federal rule-making process. this could add cost to the car you buy six years down the road and beyond but, george and robin, think about it. this is another one of those systems being added to cars that's getting us a step closer to those autonomous drivers. >> i knew that's -- >> people will forget how to drive. >> thanks very much. going to move on to amy with the other big headlines. we cannot forget about the crisis in flint, michigan. >> and michigan's governor is testifying before congress today about the water crisis there in flint. according to prere
7:14 am
governor rick snyder will claim that a state agency misled him about lead levels in the water and that he didn't learn about the contamination until 18 months after the city switched water supplies. the head of the epa is also testifying today blaming local leaders for the crisis. authorities in paris say they have foiled an imminent terror attack after arresting three men and a woman. the suspects had been under surveillance because of their alleged links to extremists. a rifle and computer equipment were seized. well, the washington, d.c. subway is back open after a 29-hour shutdown for emergency safety inspections which uncovered dozens of frayed or damaged power cables including three that officials say posed a major fire risk. well, new video shows an explosion at this medical marijuana dispensary in new mexico. two workers struggled to escape. the dispensary has been fined $13,000 for safety violations. well, this morning music fans are mourning the sudden death of frank sinatra jr. ♪
7:15 am
his family says sinatra died of a heart attack while on tour in florida. as a teen sinatra followed his father's footsteps into the business becoming his father's musical director and conductor. he was just 72. and finally the owner of a german shepherd named luna had given up hope and presumed his beloved dog was lost at sea after falling overboard during a fishing trip off california back in february. he spent days looking for luna but no luck and then the unthinkable. workers at the navy base on san clemente island off san diego saw a dog on the side of the road wagging her tail and guess what, it was luna! in remarkably good shape considering her ordeal. apparently she is a very strong swimmer. that dog paddle works every time. >> it really does. wow. thank you, amy. >> and that island, beautiful to visit. so hopefully she had a good final and i'm glad she's okay. >> glad to have you back.
7:16 am
happy to be here and good morning to you. we do have news on a newly released video of a dramatic prison break. two inmates escaping clinging to a rope as they hang hovering from a helicopter trying to fly away to freedom and abc's linsey davis has the story. >> reporter: while it resembles a slapstick comedy routine this is an actual prison break. watch as these two inmates struggle to freedom via a rope and helicopter hijacked by armed men posing as tourists. a brazen made for the movies escape. not quite as expertly as executed as in this scene in "the matrix." >> got you. >> reporter: the real life events in this video of a 2013 quebec prison break play out more like a comedy of errors, watch as one inmate almost makes it to the top, even gets a hand from a partner in crime only to fall. about a minute later, the chopper tries to take off, but fails. all the while unarmed guards are
7:17 am
prevented by prison policy from intervening in an escape where guns may be involved. after more failed attempts to get onto the roof and nearly six minutes in, they take off again. this time with the inmates in tow. >> highly unlikely you would ever have an external aerial escape in the united states because we have so many safeguards against it. >> reporter: incredibly almost 15 months after this incident with no additional security measures implemented it happened again. this time three inmates used a helicopter to break out of another prison near quebec city. those fugitives were caught two weeks later. as for these two, their freedom was short-lived. after just a few hours they were captured. for "good morning america," linsey davis, abc news, new york. >> thank you. >> why are we not surprised? >> cannot make this stuff up. >> over to ginger. new york, look at that. >> one world trade being struck by lightning.

7:32 am
hulk hogan wasn't the only one her husband recorded. in a taped deposition, heather cole testifying she and hulk hogan whose real name is terry bollea did not know they were being filmed by her husband at the time, radio shock jock bubba clem. >> to the best of your knowledge mr. bollea had no idea that there was a camera in the room at the time of the sexual encounter, is that correct? >> yes. >> reporter: cole saying she slept with hogan at the request of clem. >> you eventually had sexual relations with mr. bollea? >> yes. >> do you recall the number of encounters that you had with him? >> to the best of my knowledge i think three times that i remember. >> reporter: weeks later clem revealing he'd recorded one of their encounters. i do remember being very upset she said but she said they had an
7:33 am
he'd done it before. >> were any of your sexual encounters with other men recorded during the time that you were married to bubba? >> yes. >> reporter: also wednesday the judge refusing to allow gawker to call clem as a witness before the jury saying he had a credibility problem and citing his plan to plead the fifth. instead, allowing the site's lawyers to read out their questions for clem for the court record. >> mr. clem's meeting with the fbi, including to confirm whether he told the fbi that he, ms. cole and plaintiff all knew plaintiff's sexual encounter with ms. cole was being recorded. >> reporter: a reference to a 2012 fbi investigation related to the tape. sealed by the judge. >> it's white noise. the whole purpose is to distract from why we're here. we're here to recover damages for what they did to mr. bollea. >> reporter: and a dramatic moment when an appeal court ordered the judge to unseal a host ofoc
7:34 am
this case including possibly that fbi report. we do expect closing arguments to begin today. george. >> okay, linzie, thanks. let's talk about it with dan abrams and nancy grace. nancy, what did you make of heather's testimony? pretty emotional but did seem to contradict hulk hogan in places. >> i can tell you this. i think she came across as sympathetic and kept going back to she was being embarrassed it was released and hurt by certain things that hulk hogan said in later interviews, even though she seems sympathetic and seemed genuine, it kind of defies logic that if she knew her husband was recording other sexual trysts with other men, what made hulk different? why didn't she know about that? that is a problem for me. >> pretty good point. >> yeah, except the key to me in her testimony is how does it relate to hulk hogan, right? because this is a case largely about
7:35 am
true as hulk hogan claims that i was trying to pressure him into having sex, in fact, i was the one being pressured by my husband to do it. if this jury believes that hulk hogan is lying about how this happened, i think that could impact damages because i've said again and again if this jury doesn't like gawker it could -- >> how about the decision of her ex-husband bubba to take the fifth? >> well, that's a critical loss for gawker. for gawker, gawker wants to be able to show, has been wanting to show that hulk hogan knew he was being recorded, because that would be critical when it comes to invasion of privacy if he knows he's being recorded it's different than being recorded without your knowledge. bubba took the video and said on the radio at one point that hulk did know that he was being recorded then he said he didn't know. by him not testifying, gawker doesn't get to cross-examine him, doesn't get to address that
7:36 am
>> well, i do. in a sense but when somebody takes the fifth amendment you can't force them up on the stand. he's claiming and this is bubba the love sponge clem that if he testifies he could open himself up to incriminating himself and possible criminal charges, so he's not going to take the stand and i'll tell you this, every trial lawyer knows this, sometimes both sides, they want the person on the stand but that person is so volatile nobody will touch him with a ten-foot pole because you don't know what they're going to do on cross-examination and another thing that dan abrams just said, i agree with, and i've said from the get-go, they have to believe hulk hogan because if they decide they don't like hulk or they don't believe him his entire case is right down the toilet. everything. >> gawker wanted him to literally get up there and invoke his fifth amendment self-incrimination in front of the jury.
7:37 am

7:43 am
do kids in the workplace distract you from keeping your eye on the ball. >> every day is too much. i don't care if you're a dad and work at a bank or a newsroom or at the rock quarry, i don't care where it is, every day is too much. it's a workplace. to the a day care. >> it's not about the kid's behavior but just talking to strahan, it's tradition in sports. these guys bring their kids to the locker rooms. >> but every day. >> you saw he had a locker and the guys have to change their behavior in that workplace if a kid is there. >> because it's like wilbon, bringing him every single day. >> they say he might have a change of heart. maybe this was an impulse thing, he got upset and signed the papers to retire. the white sox haven't handed them in yet. >> i hope it works out. >> all right, coming up, everybody, erin andrews is speaking out for the first time since that huge court
