7:00 am
but let's get to the top story. donald trump getting kicked out of the red state gathering after shocking comments made about fox's megyn kelly. we have nbc's kelly o'donnell with this story. >> reporter: good morning, craig. if you thought you heard it all about donald trump's brash style and unedited mouth getting him in truth, there is more. he was supposed to be a star attraction at the event, but the organizer has yanked his invitation in developments happening overnight. donald trump. nowhere to be found this morning at a key conservative convention in atlanta. the annual red state gathering. the billionaire and gop presidential frontrunner was abruptly told he was no longer welcome here. after trump made new, crude comments about the questioning style of debate moderator megyn kelly last night on cnn. >> you could see blood coming out of her eyes. wherever.
7:01 am
>> reporter: event organizer eric erick erickson released this statement. >> i have rescinded his invitation. he said i am just not willing to give up being a decent person for trump. erickson wanted to have him here as a legitimate candidate. no one would suggest a female asking questions is doing it because she is hormonal. a spokesperson for trump fired back after midnight. this is just another example of weakness of being politically correct. for all of the people who were looking forward to mr. trump coming, we will miss you. trump was taking heat from rivals earlier in the day before his comments because of trump's language toward women. governor chris christie.
7:02 am
>> i have a really strong, capable tough wife who would not minutes. >> reporter: i caught up with carly fiorina back stage. >> that is not helpful. >> reporter: and carly fiorina responded more specifically on twitter. saying mr. trump, there is no ex- kelly. and erickson says he will play the tape to give them context about why trump will not be here. he knows trump was part of the draw for people who paid a fee to participate. straight. donald trump will be a no show. craig. >> kelly, thank you. the republican national convention communications director joins us this morning. sean, good morning. >> good morning, erica. >> do you agree with the comments that megyn kelly was
7:03 am
asking tough questions and was hormonal? >> i think megyn kelly was asking tough questions because she is megyn kelly. she is a tough questioner. people understand that. the comments made as the package last night, i think mr. trump, part of the reason he gets the popularity that he has is because he's not by his own words politically correct. what goes with that is he has to be careful with his words. there is no question, he needs to clarify that comment. >> do you renounce those comments then? >> look, i know my job is not to renounce comments or not. if he stands by them, that is inappropriate. i hope mr. trump, because he does speak off the cuff and he doesn't subscribe to politically correctness and in a way that was not thought out.
7:04 am
he needs to clarify that this morning. >> at what point do these comments become damaging to the party as a whole. specifically to women and minorities. two voting blocks that republicans have been work are hard to recruit. >> we have done very well reaching out to young women and african-americans and hispanic going into the community. putting a lot of money and manpower into reaching out to communities round the around the country. it is something that chairman priebus has put at the top of his list and something we will continue to do as we go through the next cycle. from the party perspective. it is an area we are concerned with. it is an area we are continuing to do better and better every cycle with. that's going to propel us to victory in 2016. >> you are the communications director for the rnc. at what point do you reach out to mr. trump? >> we have private conversations with all of the candidates and
7:05 am
staff on an ongoing basis. those conversations will continue. i think you noted before that chairman priebus has talked to mr. trump about his tone. mr. trump's style is that he speaks off the cuff. he is not someone that has run for office before. that may be part of his popularity. he is seeking the office of the united states now and words do matter. some folks have a problem with subscribing to total politically correctness, but every word you say is being scrutinized at this point and we need to be careful in how it comes across to different demographics. >> sean spicer, thank you for your time. >> you bet. an outpouring of emotion after the colorado movie theater killer has been spared of the death penalty.
7:06 am

7:07 am
>> the death of a seriously mentally ill man is not justice no matter how tragic the case is. >> reporter: but the evidence was damning. video of the crime scene horrific. most chilling of all, journal entries by holmes himself detailed his plan force calculated violence. only nine jurors wanted execution and two undecided. the only juror to speak out so far to explain why she would not be swayed. >> i believe it was the mental illness issue. that was it. >> reporter: and after a 65 day trial with more than 300 witnesses, the prosecutor of the case apologized to the victims. >> i asked them to trust me and to follow me and i will try to get them to a place i thought was justice. i came up short. >> reporter: families whose only hope now is to never see this man's face or hear his name again.
7:08 am

7:09 am
instructed to do. >> tell me about that one juror that would not be swayed. what was her reasoning? >> she didn't give her exact reasoning. she felt that life was swayed. >> she didn't say she was penalty? she didn't say she had lingering concerns about his mental state? she just said no? >> she just said she couldn't do it. >> how emotional was it in trying to get her to change her mind? >> at that point, we had gone over several times how firmly we stood in our position and she was at the maximum point of her position. so we at that point decided to
7:10 am
end the deliberations because we were firmly entrenched in our positions for the most part other than the two still on the fence. >> what was it like looking into the faces of the victims and their families as that decision was announced yesterday? >> well, i can't speak for everyone, but for me it was definitely painful. they will suffer for the rest of their lives. those that are living and the families of those that are deceased will be suffering also forever. after we're long gone, they will continue to suffer. we just -- i personally hope and pray that life will be as good as possible for them but knowing that will be very difficult. >> juror 17, thank you so much for your time this morning.

7:44 am
tr aend. a lot of patients are traveling overseas for plastic surgery. the reason for that is they are looking for a procedure that's as cheap as possible. i think that's a big problem because what you are trying to do especially going overseas is there are so many unknowns. what's the facility? what is the doctor like? are the materials fda approved? i am treating a patient with that problem. she had an implant that was put in that wasn't approved. >> you need to figure out if you are doing this for the right reasons, but also how do you know if you are healthy enough to be a candidate? >> that is a two-part question. mental health is the number one thing you are looking for with this patient. obviously, we will check ekg and blood work and things like that. ar le they having it done for right reasons? are they doing it or someone else having it done? >> and part of the reason in the
7:45 am
poll, if there was no down time and all of these other things. we have the down time and what you have to figure in for the popular procedures. breast augmentation is less than a week. i found some surprising. years, it has shortened up because some procedures are more elegant. these can be done and within a week you are back to work. a lot of them are non surgical. >> did your readers ask you about these? >> you need to be realistic with what you are going to have, pre-and post treatment. you need to be clear of what you are doing for plastic surgery. everyone will have a different recovery time. breast augmentation, if you go underneath the muscle as opposed to over the muscle, you will have different down time. you need to talk to your doctor. >> glad to have you here to start the conversation. dr. davis and sara, thank you.
