facebook and twitter and take a look at this. he picked up the most followers on twitter. hillary was a distant second but you know who picked up the most? donald trump. he had 60,000 new followers. >> why is that not shocking? >> he'll be here in a second. >> he will. our political team will break it down for us and begin with abc's cecilia vega who was there for all of the action in las vegas. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, what a night. good morning to you, george said it, hillary's team calling this the best day of the campaign so far. bernie sanders broke fund-raising records. those predictions that last night would be boring, they certainly fell short. >> please welcome the democratic candidates -- >> reporter: there were five candidates but this was the hillary versus bernie show. >> secretary clinton, is bernie sanders tough enough on guns? >> no, not at all. >> but i can tell secretary clinton that all the shouting in the world is not going to do what all of us i hope want, that is, keep guns out of the hands
of people that should not have those guns and end this horrible violence we are seeing. >> reporter: hillary clinton center stage but when it came to being on the hot seat over those e-mails. >> with all due respect it's a little hard -- isn't it hard for you to call this a partisan issue. >> i want to talk about what the american people want from the next president of the united states. >> senator sanders. >> reporter: have senator bernie sanders the opponent chipping away at her lead coming to her defense. >> let me say something that may not be great politics, but i think the secretary is right. and that is that the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> thank you. me too. me too. thank you. thank you. [ applause ] >> reporter: clinton tried to hold on to her front-runner status defending herself against
accusations of flip-flopping on trade and immigration. >> so i'm not taking a backseat to anybody on my values, my principles, and the results that i get. >> reporter: sanders trying to convince america that a self-described socialist can win the white house. >> i'm a progressive but i'm a progressive who likes to get things done. >> so we'll explain what democratic socialism is and what democratic socialism is about is saying that it is immoral and wrong that the top 0.1% in this country own almost 90%. >> reporter: jim webb, lincoln chafee and martin owe bhally on that stage too. >> i've been waiting for ten minutes. >> reporter: just waiting, hoping, trying to get noticed. >> first of all -- >> this discussion at some point -- >> yes, you'll be coming in next. >> i've been standing over here for ten minutes. >> reporter: getting a jump on the front-runners prove be to be tough. >> any time someone is running to be our leader and a world leader which the american president is credibility is an
issue. out there with the world and we have repair work to be done. i think we need someone that has the best in ethical standards as our next president. that's how i feel. >> secretary clinton, do you want to respond? >> no. >> governor. >> reporter: yeah, she just said no. but the most buzzworthy moment online last night was hillary clinton and bernie sanders actually agreeing about the most controversial issue in this entire campaign, those e-mails but take a look at this. i want to show you this too, bill clinton tweeting out this picture of him watching the debate on tv. he wasn't inside that debate hall. he said that he is proud of hillary clinton and her performance last night showed that she could be president. >> i think you'd expect him to say that. cecilia, thanks very much. from the republican front-runner, donald trump. he live tweeted the whole debate. here was one of them. said sorry there is no star on the stage tonight. he's on the phone with us right now. so no star on the stage, mr. trump. who won? >> well, she did what she had to do. she got through it. she got through it fine.
i thought the others were not strong. they were not going after her. it was a very kind debate, very gentle. and she got through the debate. she's got a substantial lead in the polls so they had to hit her hard and decided not to do that. i think bernie gave up for a good sound bite. it was a wonderful sound bite but you have an fbi investigation going on. he gave up the e-mail situation right then and there and i think that's a mistake. i think that he's losing quite a bit -- he's losing by so much that he really should not have done that, although it was a nice moment for him. >> yeah. >> and a nice moment for her. actually a much better moment for her. >> puts the issue away. you said it was a good move by bernie sanders. he also took on casino capitalist, brndz did, sounds like a preview of a possible attack on you. who wins between the casino capitalist and democratic socialist? >> we'll see. it is a race. i don't think he'll get there. his performance was okay but he had to be much better. had to come out the clear winner and he didn't. she came out not the winner but,
yeah, probably if you think about it, george, she came out the winner. she did what she had to do and they were extremely gentle. the other three, it's not going to happen. >> at the same time there is a new fox poll out that shows ben carson catching up with you, almost even with you, you're at 24. he's at 23. how do you explain that and are you ready to take him on? >> i can't explain it. i've been number one for a long time and i'm number one in every poll in most cases by very big numbers in double-digit numbers. this was one that came out yesterday of the he's been getting a lot of ink on the muslims and other things and i guess people look at that and they probably like it. some people thought they wouldn't like it but they probably do. it's interesting, but, you know, he's a good guy, a nice guy, we get along well. we'll see if that continues but as you see i'm still in the lead and -- and i've actually gone up a little and he's gone up and other people have gone down. so many of the others are way down it's really amazing.
it looks like a two-man race. >> right now you guys are at the top. will you have to take him on and take the gloves off? >> probably at some point, yes. which i actually look forward to doing. i can't do it, though. he's been so nice to me, george. i can't do it. >> what's the number one issue for you to take him on? >> i think there's a lot of issues but one of them would be experience. i mean, ben is a doctor and he's -- that's what he's been doing and the question is, is he capable of negotiating with china and russia and iran and all of the things you have to do and, you know, there will be a lot of things but i think at this moment i won't go into them but there will be a lot of things having to do with capacity and experience. >> donald trump, thanks for joining us again this morning. >> thank you very much, george. >> we're joined now by jon karl and matthew dowd so you just heard donald trump right there. hillary won. >> this was the best day of the campaign for her. she was confident. she was forceful. she was prepared without seeming overly prepared, even seemed authentic. the most striking thing we were all wondering was hillary clinton going to come under
attack. instead she came on the attack and went right at bernie sanders. >> well, i think she had a very good night. i think she was very competent in her answers but debates are about how do you solve liabilities you have. she came in with the two big liability, authenticity and likability. i think she comes away still with those two liabilities. i thought the most disciplined person was bernie sanders from the get-go from the sound at the beginning to the very end knew exactly where he stood and can repeat exactly where he stands and i think bernie sanders gets a bump from this. >> yeah, a lot of the focus groups coming out show he did quite well. did he put the e-mail issue away at least for the primaries? >> i think he did. i don't think it existed in the primary. i think that he did that. i actually think it benefited him more than her and made him look strong and made him look like even those he is against her but likes her. >> this was never going to be an issue in the democratic primary. one week from now on tuesday she will go before the special benghazi committee and face,
george, ten hours of questioning. it'll be a much different tone. >> one name that did not come up surprising joe biden, what does this do to his calculations. >> you know, on one hand biden had to look at this and go, wow, the competition for hillary clinton is weak. i mean she doesn't have a forceful competitor on there outside of bernie sanders. he must have seen an opening there. but, you know, he didn't come up at all. there is a sense his moment has passed. she was forceful. she did not look vulnerable. >> it brings him into the race, i think. bernie sanders gets a bump because he was the most disciplined. he watches that and goes we can't nominate a socialist in the democratic party and brings him in and probably fairly quickly. >> clear difference between the two. >> it will have to be quick one way or the other. >> let's go to robin. that breaking news. the delta jet forced to abort takeoff at l.a.x. when a car drove onto the runway. kayna whitworth has all the details. good morning. >> reporter: yeah, robin, good morning. it was a close call at l.a.x. we have reports now coming in
from the "l.a. times" an airport worker in an official airport vehicle that took a wrong turn and they were on the runway headed straight for a jet that was getting ready to take off. as you mentioned, robin, it was a delta connection flight. had 78 passengers on board plus the crew. they had to abort their takeoff. now, this all happening just before noon and it was at the same time that air traffic control was getting requests from two airlines for emergency landings. now, spokesperson saying they can't remember the last time something like this happened. they're saying it's a very rare event. everyone on board is okay, but, robin, certainly, it's frightening to think about what could have happened. we'll keep you updated on this throughout the morning. >> as details come in. kayna, thank you. now to a major lawsuit that could have big implications for gun control. jurors finding a store liable for the sale of a weapon that was later used in the shooting of two milwaukee police officers. abc's pierre thomas has that
story. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the gun store owners get to appeal the case but this verdict could have far-reaching implications putting gun dealers across the nation on notice they may have to be more careful about who they sell to. you're watching an illegal gun sale. that man at the counter is actually buying the gun for this suspect, julius bergeronen who at the time was 18, too young to make the purchase. roughly a month later julius gets into an altercation with two police officers, it's caught on tape. he shoots them in the face. scarring them for life physically and mentally. >> felt like i didn't deserve to live anymore. actually considered committing suicide. >> reporter: the officers sued the gun store claiming it was a rogue dealer looking the other way while criminals illegally bought weapons. the lawsuit claims badger guns approved the sale despite a number of irregularities including that the man filling out the form first noted that the gun was not even for him.
milwaukee authorities say that between 2006 and 2009, more than 1800 firearms from badger guns were used in crimes. >> got a store with a bad track record, you got victims who are police officers, and you have a phony sale, if that can't win, nothing will win. >> reporter: but during trial gun store officials argued they never intentionally sold to criminals. >> the last thing we want to do is put a gun in somebody's hands that has -- that's going to commit a crime. >> reporter: the jury did not buy it awarding the officers $5 million in damages. after deliberating just nine hour, robin. >> pierre, as you know, many are asking is this going to have any sort of impact on gun purchases moving forward? >> reporter: a lot depends on what happens on appeal, robin. a legal scholar told me yesterday holding a gun store liable was a rare event and virtually everyone in the gun control debate was watching so this could have broad implications.
robin. >> we'll wait and see. pierre, thanks. millions of americans getting an early taste of winter. cold blast across much of the country. what is going on? >> frost, freeze and flakes. they're all in my forecast from the great lakes to the northeast. this morning reasonably cool, 40s in the great lakes, 50s along the east coast but that was just cold front number one. number two will push through this weekend and drop everyone in the northern plains, great lakes into the 20s and then look at the 20s up in parts of the poconos even. a few snowflakes mixing in as it comes through saturday night, sunday morning. 1 degree above freezing in washington, d.c. by sunday morning. >> hanks very much. to amy with the morning's other top stories. small plane crash in florida. >> dramatic video showing the moments after a small plane crashed into this mobile home park in south florida. you see the flames shooting into the air. witnesses say the plane just fell suddenly out of the sky. three bodies have been found in that wreckage. overseas, israel's military is enforcing strict new security measures to prevent more attacks

"gma on the lookout" putting two new iphone cases through a series of tests with the new iphone 6s inside. the otterbox defender for 49.95 and anker for 9.99. the companies making similar claims among other safeguards protection against dropping and dust. mallory and jeremy from digital trends here to help us with our experiment to see if the cases hold up against even more. >> usually when we test case we go through a couple of different things you might encounter in real life. >> reporter: first up, dirt. the otter box -- >> got a ton of dirt in the speaker part which could be
really bad. >> reporter: and ankercovered in dirt. with lots of dirt in the speakers. but none ending up in the phone. we used new cases for each category of testing. now on to the gravel test. iphone phones everywhere are screaming right now. looks like it's definitely dusty but no scratches rat all. looks like this is perfectly protected. >> reporter: bring in the keys. >> a realtor tur test. my keys, incredibly crazy set of keys. the case hasn't even been scratched. this looks like a success to me. >> reporter: the drop test, once again with new case, remember, both companies claim protection against drops, we didn't see a mention on their websites of how far it could fall and still be protected. first eight feet. on a new york city rooftop and i'm going just a little bit higher. it's painful to drop an iphone. here we go, eight feet. both phones undamaged. now we take the phones even higher. here's the death defying climb. let's see what happens.
even from 15 feet, both phones, fine. bottom line, both cases pass the series of tests, so the only difference, the price. otter box tells us it provides premium durable protection and you get what you pay for. the true test is time because drops and dings aren't just a one-time occurrence. and anker says its case is designed and engineered for those who demand serious protection for their iphone without sacrificing the iphone's slim and lightweight feel. so, really the choice is yours. both cases held up really well, again, the only difference right now we saw in the test is one costs nearly 50 bucks and the other nearly 10 and, amy, what's this? >> well, it's a pretty one. i bought it because i liked how it looked. it didn't protect, though. >> i did the same thing. i have a pretty case but my phone is wrecked. i've had to replace three or four screens. where were you at before?

actress hayden panettiere, the star of abc's "nashville" suffering from postpartum depression and has checked herself into a treatment center. abc's juju chang is here with her story. good morning, juju. >> reporter: good morning, robin. you know the former child star is a talented actress and singer and model with a picture perfect engagement to a champion heavyweight boxer but hayden has been so candid, so open about her struggles with depression after her baby was born she's a stark reminder that postpartum issues can affect anyone. >> this damn baby. >> reporter: it may be a case of life imitating art. "nashville" star hayden panettiere's rep telling abc news tuesday that the actress has voluntarily seeking professional help at a treatment center as she is currently battling postpartum depression. >> help me get my life back. >> reporter: panettiere whose character juliette has struggled
with postpartum depression opening up with the anguish she shares with her counterpart on "live." >> you don't realize how broad of a spectrum you can experience that on. it's painful and it's really scary. >> reporter: the first time mom to 10-month-old daughter kaia is 1 of 600,000 moms across the country diagnosed with this form of depression each year with common simms like difficulty sleeping, high anxiety and frequent crying. the condition can easily take a toll on what is supposedly one of the happiest types in a woman's life. >> and, no, i don't have that postpartum whatever the hell you call it. >> reporter: she acknowledged the physical changes that come with motherhood mosting this photo with the caption, feeling like i'm finally coming back into my own body. this morning panettiere in treatment facing the condition head on and addressing the shame and stigma usually attached to it. >> a lot of people think it's not real.
women need a lot of support. >> reporter: and, you know, there is still a lot of misunderstanding about postpartum which can be deeply hurtful. oh, it's just hormones or a matter of will power and hayden said it best herself. it is so painful, so scary and people do need that support. >> juju, thank you. joining us senior medical contributor dr. jennifer ashton. i saw you watching that piece, jen. juju touched upon the symptoms, elaborate for us. >> you know, after delivering over a thousand babies i've seen my share of moms dealing with this and all i can tell you is it is not subtle. these women are desperate. they feel disconnected. they feel completely overwhelmed. there is profound sadness and fear. and that social stigma on top of it. and we do hear the things that juju mentioned. we hear people saying, you're just tired. you know, you're just adjusting. you just need some rest. this is way beyond this.
this is a medical emergency and in extreme cases when that woman feels like she might hurt herself or possibly her baby she needs in-hospital treatment. this is a medical emergency. >> get help right away. >> absolutely. >> so causes, risk factors here? >> well, you know, what we know some risk factor, obviously a woman who has had depression or suffered with postpartum depression is at increased risk and in terms of why women experience this, we don't totally understand. yes, there are profound hormonal changes in the brain that occur in pregnancy and postpartum but this is also biochemical and i really encourage people think of this like blood pressure. if you had high blood pressure, you would treat it. this is no different. this requires aggressive treatment. >> talk about the treatments. what are the treatments? >> look, the mainstay in a situation like this is psychotropic medication or antidepressant medication. there is exciting research that is in its infancy with hormonal
therapy. psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy. a range of complementary therapies, acupuncture, light theory, dietary supplements but to be clear you need all hands on deck here. we need social support. we need medical support. because, remember, there are two lives at stake in obstetrics always, there's a mom and a baby and they both need to get better. >> i can see how this is impacting you. >> big deal. we have to give her props. this is a situation where she would like her privacy but she's helping so many women with this awareness. >> discussion is so important. get the help and dr. ashton will be online. she'll be on twitter any questions that you have, please reach out to her. michael. >> all right, thank you, robin. and next in "heat index," you have probably heard of co-sleeping when a child sleeps in the same bed with their parents. >> we just heard of that. >> but what is co-sleeping? >> but there's one texas family that's taking it to the extreme. they've got mom, dad and five kids all in the same bed.
>> wow. >> and they designed the bed themselves so they must have really wanted it. melissa rycroft has the story. >> reporter: meet the family from plane know texas. they have a lot in common, a love video game, the outdoors and their bed? that's right. parents tom and elizabeth turn to co-sleeping with five of their kids, ages 1 to 11 when bedtime became less about wining down and more of an uphill battle. you said this came because you guys always traveled together. >> i mean we've been on the road and so we're in one hotel room for one camper and so it's been a matter of everybody just sleeping in the same room so we come home and there are blankets and pillows all over my floor every single night and tripping over kids waking them up. >> reporter: to make the new situation work elizabeth came up with the ultimate bed hatch. >> kind of feel silly because it's so simple. i mean i basically took the ikea
kura beds and made sure each kid had some space of their own so hung little curtains and did little mood lighting and, you know, made it fun. >> reporter: they say since they started co-sleeping about six months ago the family has gone from zero to 40 winks in no time and sleep experts say co-sleeping can work as long as everybody is catching enough shut-eye each night. >> i do think it's important for a family who's co-sleeping to have a reassessment every couple of months to make sure that it's really still working for you. to make sure everybody is sleeping well. that you're getting your couple connect time. >> reporter: for those wondering -- now, i have to ask don't want to get too personal, mom and dad time is really important. >> yes. >> private time, quiet time. obviously when you have five children in your bed, you lose a lot of that. >> so we just say there's always plenty of other rooms. >> reporter: elizabeth and tom say they're flexible and if it stops working they'll make a change. >> i honestly don't see it lasting that long which is
partly why i assembled it the way i did because i wanted to be able to break the bed as part. >> reporter: for now they've got it figured out from "a" to zs. >> they can come and go any time they want as long as they're getting the sleep they need we're not going to change it. >> reporter: for "good morning america," melissa rycroft, plano, texas. >> that looks like the opposite of heaven. i tell you, i guess you're getting your kids ready for college. >> no judgment zone. >> to each their own. >> they were able to still have five children. >> yes. >> i mean -- >> i didn't think we were going to go there. >> they made it work. >> to each their own. >> going to go from co-parenting to "modern parenting," our series and today we'll have a look at how kids handle failure. turns out the girls take it harder than boys. >> no, i don't. >> now, that is something we have to address as parents when they're so young, lara. abc's mara schiavocampo has the
story. >> reporter: failure. it can hit kids especially hard. >> i know i missed one. i'm not an a -- >> some experts say girls can be affected most of all having a harder time coping with failure than their male classmates. why? we sat down with a group of 12-year-olds to find out. one thing they all noticed, the boys seem to simply brush it off. what do you see from boys had they fail? how do they react to it? >> i think boys just shrug it off and think it's fine. >> guys just don't really care as much as girls do with some things. >> reporter: next up, they say girls tend to be more emotional. >> i think girls are a little more dramatic about things. >> reporter: and then there's the social aspect. one study finding 74% of girls surveyed felt they were under pressure to please everyone. >> once you start overachieving people expect things from you. >> reporter: that can make public failures especially
difficult. >> i felt more embarrassed and like self-conscious. >> i felt disappointed and actually felt judged by other people. >> reporter: and judged how? >> in their minds, oh, she can't do anything. >> reporter: the silver lining, social circles can also be a great source of comfort. >> it can be supportive to you and if someone else tells you that they feel disappointed this themselves or something you should be okay. >> reporter: girls helping each other up after one of life's inevitable many falls. for "good morning america," mara schiavocampo, abc news, new york. >> let's talk about this with our friend rachel simmons "aautr of "odd girl out." such a big problem for them. >> it really is and starts at a young age. they get the message from society be liked by everyone. please others so that's going to make failure so much harder because it's not just that they're messing up they're worrying what do people think of me? do people not like me anymore.
>> you start to see these sign, what do you do? one of the first things you do work with your daughter on not personalizing failure. you don't want her to see failing as a sign that people don't like me anymore. so you say, look, this is the job that you did, don't worry about what other people are thinking of you. when you focus on your performance you can bounce back so much easier. >> and you have to let them fail. >> you really do. failure is a muscle. it's a skill and the only way your daughter will learn how to do it if you let her struggle so you've got to back off. you've got to just let them fall and they're going to look to you for support after that. that's when you step in. >> you heard about something called the stereotype threat. >> when girls believe that the stereotype that they're bad at math or science is true that's going to make failure even harder because when a girl fails at math and thinks, oh, girls are terrible at math they're not going to think they can fix it. they'll just think, oh, my ability is what needs to be changed and i can't. >> they give up. >> they totally give up and done for them. >> rachel simmons, thanks very much.

"the simpsons." >> oh, yes. >> by the way, you know the funny thing, that show came on in december of 1989 so it had one month to make it to the '80s and still on the air today and, of course, it was the cult favorite number one. now, we have a number six to do because we have one of the stars of that show with us, so, whoopi, i want to give you the honors. >> "star trek: the next generation" where i played ginan in my own bar? you were the civilian lounge hostess. who could forget that. look at whoopi. i love that. whoopi we'll be talking to you in a second. we want to know what you think about all this. i have to say i was upset "dallas." >> "laverne and shirley."
"alf." america, what are you thinking? >> what about "love boat." >> "fantasy island." >> can you tell we're children of the '80s. tell us your top five. in the meantime, back inside to whoopi and robin. >> thank you, amy. we love her on the big screen, the stage and, of course, on abc's "the view" but now whoopi is dishing out some relationship advice opening up about her own love life and her new book, it's really funny. got to pick it up. "if someone says 'you complete me, run!" great line in a movie but run. >> yeah. >> hey, whoop. what's going on. >> just trying to keep up with you. >> living the dream. >> that's it. that's it. >> love how you dedicate the book to your brother clyde and you said he was so cool, that his personal soundtrack would be the theme from "shaft." what inspired you to dedicate it to him. >> well, you know, he passed very suddenly earlier this year and he and i used to have
conversations about relationships because neither one of us could actually figure out why we couldn't get it together and then i actually did figure out why i couldn't do it. and so, you know, he and i had many, many conversations late into the night. >> oh. >> so, you know, he didn't get to see the book finish but he heard a lot of the themes in it. >> because you, you do not -- you're known for this. you don't mince words. you get right to it. you said you have to know what you want. >> well, i just -- you know, i listen to people talk about relationships in life and, you know, you have to know where your line of demarcation is. we all see the red flags. you see the red flag with the person you're with and say, no, no, no, it is a red flag. if you see it and it's like this, it's a red flag so maybe paying attention to it is a smarter way to go if you want longevity in your relationship. >> sometimes others see the red flag. you talk about your mom, one 6
yo your weddings. >> you know you don't want to do this. i have the keys to the car. let's go and my excuse was, i don't want to embarrass this person because, you know, we sent all these invitations out and you don't want to leave them looking bad but perhaps before you get to that place, maybe you want to say, do i actually want to do this? for me i came to understand that, you know, relationships require a day-to-day, a minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, day-to-day give and take. i'm not interested in that. i don't want to do it. and so i can't be in a relationship because unless you're going to do that, it's really you have to do the work and i don't want to. i have a cat. i'll do it with him. >> you have a cat and you got a hit show too. you got "the view" that you're busy with right now. >> yeah. >> and you're never short on hot topics. >> apparently not. >> what do you look forward to most when you see something
happen during the day and you're like, oh, we're going to talk about this in the morning. >> well, you know, because there are 45 of us now on the panel, we have to -- everybody has something that happens during the day. so it's really hoping that it's meritous enough we will be able to talk about it and that someone else is not coming in with something even more interesting. sometimes, again, in a relationship because i talk about this in the book too, you have give and take and have to give and take in a relationship so sometimes you have to say, that's actually better than what i wanted to do so let's do that. >> there are all types of relationships. that's what you deal with in the book but you find time, the new movie that you have out with ashley judd. >> "big stone gap." sweet, wonderful, adrianna who wrote it, took her about 15 years to get the money and she, you know, people always say, yeah, yeah, i wrote this for you. you will's be able to do it and realize, oh, they went on to
somebody else. she never wavered. she waited -- we got to make it and it's a lovely movie. >> one of our viewers asks this when it comes to movies from renee. would you ever think about doing a "sister act 3"? >> well, you know, the hardest thing about doing a "sister act 3" is so many of the nuns are not with us, it would be hard to do without mary wicks because we'd have to -- anything is possible, anything is doable and, you know, it was a good and wonderful film and we had fun. >> it was just on cable again. it's one of those movies wherever it is you sit down and you watch it. >> it's playing always somewhere in the world. it's kind of freaky. >> why don't we have a couch for you. we have a special guest. your beautiful daughter alex is with you. yes, come on in, alex. you're working on a documentary. you learned some things about her and her relationship and her hub -- her husband. >> my husband. >> and she's married the same man three times. >> three times.
>> we hung at the super bowl. >> he loves you. >> and so, you know, saying what's the deal? how does that work and realizing that people, you know, you have to pay attention. you have to pay attention from the beginning. so they were smart enough to realize that it is the two of them which i love. >> and i appreciate that you share that but you also have a documentary. tell us about it. >> yeah, new reality show
and it will feel like fall and beyond as we freeze this weekend. actually freeze from green bay to parts of chicago just outside the city. going to be cold. that's the building picture. let's go ahead and get a check closer home. >> you could see some frost this weekend around here in some areas anyway. dry for now. chilly this morning. temperatures in the 50's. this afternoon 69 breezy and cooler. 65 with sun tomorrow. 66 with a shower friday. and highs in the 50's. ginger. time for "gma's" real money and a new study showing that women are more unsure and anxious about retirement than men. our economics correspondent rebecca jarvis has some ideas to jump start your savings. >> reporter: nancy camerota says not much scares her, not much except retirement. >> what scares me the most about
retirement is did i financially plan enough? do i have enough saved. >> reporter: the 54-year-old single mom says retirement has taken a backseat to her top priority, her daughter. >> i would give up anything to make sure that she has the best. so could i save more money? i think i've done a decent job. i'm worried that a decent job isn't enough anymore. >> reporter: nancy is hardly alone. according to a study conducted by research firm gfk women are more pessimistic about retirement than men with 60% reporting they feel unsure or lacking in financial confidence. fortunately we knew just who to call. financial expert and author nicole lapin. first order of business, for nancy, says nicole, start focusing less on her daughter's future and more on hers. nancy says she wants to finance her daughter's college education which she expects to cost around $250,000 but nicole says considering asking nancy's daughter to take out more
student loans. >> the last thing you want to do is show up at your child's door when you can't pay for your own retierlt so like they say on an airplane put your oxygen mask on first before helping others. >> reporter: second, take advantage of roth i.r.a.s, the advantages of a roth i.r.a. are that your contributions grow tax-free and that you can generally make withdrawals tax and penalty-free after you reach age 59 1/2. >> don't panic. it's never too late to start saving for retirement. >> reporter: it's never too late but the very best time to start is right now, today. and here's why. we want to say if you start adding $1,000 a year at age 25 to a roth i.r.a., by the time you are 65, you will have put $40,000 into that account but thanks to compounding, the account will be worth $213,000, now, if you wait to start putting money into that very same account until you're 45, you put the same amount in, your investment will only be worth
$87,000, that's because you don't give it the same amount of time to grow so anybody out there who is young thinking i can't start saving today, $25 goes a long way. >> that compound interest is almost magical. >> it does the trick. >> it does, rebecca, thanks very much. and coming up a musical open, mike internet superstar who can impersonate almost anyone. ♪ born in the usa >> he's going to perform next. ♪ i think i found myself a cheerleader ♪ "gma's" "real money" brought to you y

knick." it is brilliant and it's about a brilliant but tortured sushlgen and the chaotic new york city scene of 1900. welcome back to "gma." >> thank you. >> i love this combination, you and steven soderbergh and both said about each other, you are fearless and that's what this show feels like. it's a look back. it's a period drama but it's not nostalgic at all. >> no, i think that's one of the things that steven said at the beginning of making it. he didn't want anyone to feel nostalgic about living in new york in 1900. >> your character is tough. when we last left your doctor he was suffering from a little bit of an addiction problem. >> yep. >> as season two opens, quite shocking that he's treating a cocaine addiction with heroin. >> which apparently they did, yeah. i mean at the time cocaine was legal and took seven or eight years to realize there were problems associated with it and treatment for people who developed this thing called cocaine frenzy was to give them heroin to calm them down, yeah. >> why do you love this show?
>> i think it's the most original brilliant look at a period drama really, you know, we're looking at the world of medicine but a brilliant overview of what was happening in new york at the time and it sort of feels very kind of edgy and visceral and unlike any other period thing i've ever seen. >> i agree. i watched it and the binge-watch is a real thing. it's a real problem. it's fantastic. if you haven't seen it, it is so good. in the meantime, you're also very busy making your broadway debut. >> i am. >> congratulations. >> oh, yeah. >> harold pin they're old times. what made you decide that would be the play. >> i mean, i did a lot of theater when i was young. i haven't done a play for 14 years and i've been thinking about it and then this came along and i loved the play and love the part and decided this was the right thing. >> one review that i read said you're very sexy, that there's a lot of chemistry. do you feel that? >> it's what the play is about. it's about memory but it's very
much about sexual jealousy, as well, yeah. >> so what's more fun, shooting "the knick" or being a broadway star here in new york city. >> i love doing it all. >> life is good and when you're not doing that you're playing tennis. >> i do. we were just talking about that. >> i love that. >> listen, we love having you. best of luck. everybody, see clive on broadway. also "the knick," season two premieres on friday on cinemax and thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. how do you start the day brighter? make the ride smoother? and finish with a smile? you've got this. you've got t.j.maxx. better brands, at prices that help you maxx life! okay. so everyone is saying, "hey! you gotta get fios!"

route just cleared a minute ago. traffic is moving a little better westbound. this is near the conshohocken curve. you can see that eastbound traffic at this point particularly heavy if the blue route to belmont and again from the boulevard to girard. we're looking at a 24 minute ride in either direction between the blue route and the vine on the schuylkill expressway. looking at the boulevard we've been pretty heavy all morning on the boulevard and southbound traffic really jammed at this point from fifth street to the schuylkill so traveling on the boulevard southbound you're not alone. problems at the fox chase line. having equipment issues. we're seeing up to 30 minute delays watch for that on mass transit. that accident still out there at aramingo and wheatsheaf road. a motorcycle off to the side. slow speeds on i-95 still at this point, tam. >> okay, thank you karen. now let's find out about your accuweather. looks like not such a bad day, david. >> not too bad. starting out with plenty of sunshine tam on the terrace it's a little cool 59 degrees in philadelphia and still the lower 50's up in allentown. your exclusive accuweather 7-day shows a high today of 69. not quite as mild as yesterday
