now to donald trump in that fiery speech we saw him take on clinton as he also defended that tweet causing him trouble as he campaigned in the key state of ohio with vp short lister newt gingrich. abc's david wright on the trail with trump in cincinnati, good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. they call this state the cradle of presidents, ohio, a critical battleground come november. one big reason the republicans scheduled their national convention this summer for cleveland, but ohio is also one state donald trump did not win in the primaries. >> i love ohio. you know, i worked in ohio for a long time. >> reporter: trying to win over the buckeye state donald trump trotted out one possible running mate former house speaker newt gingrich who'd have no trouble being in an attack dog. >> is there a single person here who believes that if you had done what hillary clinton had done that you would not be prosecuted? >> all: no! >> reporter: trump says he has
ten names on his short list. minus two, it would seem. senator bob corker now says the job is not for him and senator joni ernst who caused such a stir with this campaign ad -- >> i grew up castrating hogs on an iowa farm. >> reporter: she told politico she has more work to do in the senate saying it's unlikely she'll join the ticket. trump is defiant. defending that controversial tweet showing hillary clinton next to what many say was a star of david on top of a pile of campaign cash. trump says it was a mistake to delete the image. >> i would have rather defended it just leave it up and say, no, that's not a star of david. that's just a star. i have a son-in-law who is jewish, who is a great guy. my daughter is jewish. i have grandchildren that are jewish, okay. and i love them. i love them. >> reporter: trump's son-in-law jared kushner, the grandson of holocaust survivors was put in the awkward position of defending the billionaire
insisting my father-in-law is not an anti-semite. he says the donald trump he knows is inassistancively pro-jewish and pro-lovelace adding the worse thing his detractors can fairly say about him is that he has been careless in retweeting imagery that can be interpreted as offensive. he heads to washington, d.c. meeting with republican lawmakers. some of them critical of him for not taking full scan of hillary clinton's e-mail troubles. instead he veered so far off message that at one point he even heaped praise on saddam hussein, george. >> david write, thanks very much. let's talk about it with matt dowd our political analyst and both trying to get beyond their troubles. hillary clinton trying to get beyond the e-mails but she has the republican party to face up to in congress today with that hearing for the fbi director and donald trump just can't let this tweet go. >> no, he absolutely can't let this go. i think that this is the dynamic
of the campaign, george. it is donald trump is he a successful businessman and does he retain that through the course of this campaign? his vulnerability and hillary clinton, can she be trusted in the course of this? and i think that is the battle that we'll see over the next 130 days on both those realms or each of them. >> meantime, let's look at the vp hunt for donald trump right now. two names coming off the list, bob corker and joni ernst coming off the list. newt gingrich had his tryout last night. this is the next critical big move for trump and he needs to do it pretty soon. >> yeah, it's the biggest move he has left that he totally controls in the course of this and as you know it's one of the moves that can actually impact the race and change the poll numbers. i think he's going to be able to find somebody. if you think about this race, he's got a better chance than bob dole did in 1996 of winning the presidency and he's got a better chance of the walter mondale did in 1984 winning the presidency, both of them were able to find vp nominees in the course of this. he will settle on somebody but
it is a case of musical chairs. >> okay, matt dowd, thanks very much. george now to the tragic death of a young navy s.e.a.l. ruled a homicide. 21-year-old james lovelace died during a training exercise in a pool. the death now raising questions about whether some training is too extreme. abc's martha raddatz has more and joins us from washington. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the san diego medical examiner now saying that the actions and inactions of the instructors and other individuals involved were excessive and directly contributed to the death of the young trainee. this morning, stunning new details in the drowning death of navy s.e.a.l. trainee james derek lovelace. the 21-year-old died in his first week of elite navy s.e.a.l. training. it is the most rigorous training in the u.s. military. but this time according to the san diego medical examiner, the training went too far.
it is now being labeled a homicide. according to the medical examiner report, surveillance video from the combat swimming exercise shows lovelace struggling in the water. witnesses say his face was purple. his lips blue. the report says an instructor in the water approaches him and against regulations dunks lovelace, not once but at least twice, at one point someone else in the water pulls lovelace up. away from the instructor who eventually pulls him out still breathing but moments later he's unresponsive. >> if you kill somebody in training, you're doing the enemy's job for them. >> reporter: according to the navy s.e.a.l. foundation, between 2013 and 2015, eight s.e.a.l.s lost their lives in training. that's more than the number of s.e.a.l.s who died from combat or service-related wounds during that same period. and despite labeling this a
homicide which in this case means death at the hands of another, the navy says it is not inherently a crime but we are told charges are possible and that the instructor has been put on administrative duty during this active and open investigation, robin. >> investigation continues, martha. thank you. now to amy with today's other top stories starting with new concerns about the zika virus. >> that's right. authorities are now reporting a jump in the number of cases of zika virus, up to 50 pregnant whimper day are becoming infected in puerto rico alone. the cdc is urging officials on the island to begin aerial spraying to kill mosquitoes. meanwhile, health officials in florida have confirmed 11 new travel-related zika infections in that state yesterday alone. well, an urgent manhunt is under way for the man responsible for a series of vicious attacks on homeless men in the street. two were killed. two others are in critical condition. police have released surveillance video of the suspect they say his motive is unclear. well, a former executive at
a wall street investment bank admits he defrauded investors out of $38 million to fund his gambling addiction. prosecutors say andrew caspersen tried to raise nearly $150 million even cheating his own family and friends, he could face now more than a decade in prison. well, a major scare in the sky for an experienced hang glider. a camera was rolling as his glider snaps in two. look at that over norway. the crowd below watched in horror as he plunged to the ground. despite this malfunction he managed to pull his emergency chute and eventually landed in a lake where he was rescued by boaters. remarkably he suffered just minor injuries. and finally there's nothing like going home, even when you're a superstar athlete, especially when you're a superstar athlete. how about that. dwyane wade leaving the miami heat after 13 years to play for his hometown chicago bulls. in a letter to fans he said when growing up near chicago he never dreamed one day he would wear a buts jersey, well, now he will.
no place like home. >> good for him. >> a lot of moving around. >> kind of following his teammate lebron james went back home to cleveland. it worked for him. something that's working for all of us that excitement at wimbledon, serena and venus williams playing today in the semifinals and if they both win, it will be a real sister act and, lara is on the scene in england covering every shot. good morning, lara. >> good morning to you, michael, from wimbledon. it is a beautiful day here at the all england lawn and tennis club. i'm having my voice down all part of the etiquette which is hard for me because i want to jump over this fence right on to the grass court, alas, though, it is all about those williams sisters as the semifinals are under way. just almost up, serena, then venus will play angelique kerber both looking for that shot in the finals. it's been seven years since the most successful sisters in american sports history have
both made it this far at the all england club. but in this tournament the two have taken very different paths to get here. serena on a rougher more slippery road. >> serena slips. >> reporter: in the first week of play, serena fined $10,000 for slamming her racket. >> right at the cameraman. >> reporter: but the six-time wimbledon winner has been all business ever since. >> she's in the zone. she's in the zone. >> reporter: if serena can serve up a win here she'll have 22 grand slam wins under her belt. tied with steffi graf for the most singles victories of all time. meanwhile, big sis venus is the talk of the turnberry. the oldest player in the women's draw at 36, she has beaten two players nearly half her age. it hasn't been easy though. in 2011 she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that causes fatigue. many wrote her off but she has defied the doubters and now back on centre court for her ninth wimbledon semifinal. >> she is a real fighter. like i always says it's super
inspiring for me. >> we try to i guess find that balance of supporting each other but not brainwashing each other. >> and in case you missed it on the men's side unfortunately american sam querrey's magic run is over. however, andy murray and roger federer both squeaked it out to make it into the semifinals. it wasn't easy for either of them coming up we'll talk to patrick mcenroe about that and, of course, the williams sisters, for now, though back to you, michael, in the studio. >> she's happy. >> she's so happy there. she's at home right now. we're happy she's going to be there and she'll cover more from wimbledon in our next hour and chance to see that -- if you're dwyane wade maybe you can escape the heat but none of us can estate the heat. >> that was really good. >> the heat here and severe storms we have to get straight to it over to the radar thinks what is happening at this hour severe thunder storm watch includes saint lou thinks morning damaging wind, flash flooding, just north of nashville here's what you have

woman suit? yeah, that's coming up in our big board. we'll discuss that. >> that is coming up. but we begin with sexual harassment allegations against one of the most powerful men in television news. gretchen carlson filed a lawsuit against roger ailes claiming she was fired because she refused his advances. abc's ryan smith is at fox news headquarters with the latest, good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, george. for 11 years gretchen carlson was a stalwart at fox news known for speaking her mind now she's speaking out against her former boss claiming he subjected her to severe and pervasive sexual harassment and sabotaged her career. >> i'm gretchen carlson. >> this morning, award winning journalist gretchen carlson taking on fox news chairman and ceo roger ailes filing a sexual harassment lawsuit claiming her refusal of his unwanted sexual advances cost her her job. >> thanks so much for being part of the real story. >> reporter: in the suit carlson claims the media mogul subjected her to severe and pervasive
sexual harassment at fox news. alleging ailes injected sexual and/or sexist comments into their conversations. even asking her to turn around so he could view her posterior. carlson alleges when she met with ailes to discuss how she was being treated, ailes told her, you and i should have had a sexual relationship a long time ago. and then you'd be and better and i'd be good and better. carlson only naming ailes as a defendant but in her complaint the married mother of two also claiming her former "fox & friends" co-anchor steve doocy. >> got a fox news alert. >> treated her in a sexist and condescending manner and when ailes learned of her complaints about doocy's behavior ailes responded by calling carlson a man hater and taken off the popular morning show in 2013 and given her own afternoon show but on her final ""fox & friends"" appearance she only had positive things to say about roger ailes.
>> thanks for roger ailes for believing in me. >> she claims that move along with a salary cut and ailes' refusal to renew her contract last month were all in retaliation for her complaints of harassment and discrimination and because she rejected his sexual advances. the 76-year-old ailes, one of the most powerful men in cable news. >> we discovered secret niche in broadcasting half the american people. >> reporter: tells abc news carlson's allegations are false. this is a retaliatory suit for the network's decision not to renew her contract, which was due to the fact that her disappointingly low ratings were dragging down the afternoon lineup. ailes has faced allegation of sexism in the past. this 2014 unauthorized biography claims he wanted his female anchors to show off hair legs. fox news fought back at the author saying he was never given direct access to ailes and the
book was never fact-checked with hem. on wednesday the former miss america tweeting out this blog she wrote last year recounting her experience with sexual harassment as a young reporter. something she's addressed on air. >> i knew over time that the newsroom would start abuzz like oh here comes a former miss america. she must be a bimbo. >> reporter: carlson saying the lawsuit was a difficult step to take but adding, i had to stand up for myself and speak out for all women. carlson is seeking unspecified damages. ailes and fox news claims that the lawsuit is defamatory and offensive and promising to defend it vigorously and the parent company twentieth century fox saying while they have full confidence in ailes and doocy they take the allegations seriously and are conducting an internal review of the matter. >> let's talk about it with dan abrams and sunny hostin. dan, she's claiming sexual harassment in the workplace but the lawsuit against ailes personally not against fox news.
>> typically you would file a lawsuit against the entity that depockets it. it makes it feels like it's personal. she's not suing fox in this context and so the question is going to become, what corroborating evidence does she have to avoid making this he said/she said are there audiotapes. are there e-mails? are there other witnesses, are there contemporaneous notes she took immediately after some of these comments were made? these are the sorts of questions you have to ask in any kind of lawsuit. >> then the other -- >> add to that. i think when you look at this you're right, dan, people typically sue the parent company because they're going for the money. i think the fact that she made this personal and clear her grievance is only with roger ailes and not with fox news or its parent company gives her more credibility because it's personal and sexual harassment generally is so the fact that she's done it this way, i think, shows she's very brave and i think she gives fox news and its parent company a pass, so to speak. >> but also seems to suggest she's not alone here suggesting
that others at fox news were promoted because they didn't rebuff. >> saying she is alone in the sense that she rebuffed it, right? she's making a very, very salacious allegation here which is that other women at fox news effectively got promoted because they did not rebuff roger ailes' sexual advances and so one of the big questions is going to be, what other people are going to come forward in the context of this case? they'll try to drag in all the fox news people on both sides of this. >> i think what's also important in this sexual harassment case, testimony of other victims becomes relevant and is relevant and is admissible. her lawyer indicated that ten other women since the filing of the lawsuit have come forward. so you're right in a he said -- >> who they haven't vetted. >> but the bottom line he said/she said case kind of difficult to prove. >> but let me say on the other side of that, fox news has a
reputation as being credincredi loyal so you will likely see a lot coming to roger ailes' defense rightly or wrongly but the bottom line that's the kind of case, an ugly case. >> yet you got parallel investigations going on because you have the parent company investigating this while the lawsuit is proceeding and perhaps taking depositions. >> investigative internally. that's sort of a cya thing. you want to cover yourself if you're the parent company. once you're put on notice sexual harassment may have occurred at your place of business you have to make sure that you have all the things in place to make sure that it didn't happen or it doesn't happen again. >> okay, sunny hostin and dan abrams, thanks very much. to michael? thank you, george. coming up on our big board, those self-driving cars are under fire. a second crash now under investigation. plus, the battle over vaccines. parents suing over new laws and marvel's surprising new superhero. you won't believe who is going to be wearing that iconic iron

unfortunately it seems to have more of a toy where people like to put up youtube video to see look what my car can do and sometimes there are problems. >> and, the new bombshell article in "fortune" magazine which tesla's ceo elon musk responded to and said there was a huge stock sell-off after the first accident. what do you know about this? >> well, you're right, michael. this is very interesting because when the accident happened on may 8th and there was a death no one said anything. so he -- we don't know if he disclosed but it doesn't seem like he disclosed to the potential investors who raised $1.46 billion for tesla so i would guess that elon musk would try to protect himself and say, oh, yeah, they already knew. we don't know that and i have a feeling the s.e.c. might want to get involved because there's already a probe over that and other accidents that happened post that. >> people watching that.
>> opened up a can of worms. >> even if it's autopile, i'm going to keep my hands on the wheel. >> be a little weird to go without my hands on the wheel. lauren, thank you. now to the battle over immunization. the new law in california requiring up public schoolkids to be vaccinated but now some parents are fighting back and filing a lawsuit and joining us now is dr. richard besser and, doc, what's going on? >> so we do have a battle brewing, all states require vaccination for children entering kindergarten to protect them and other kids in the classroom but there are some outs. if a child has a medical condition that makes vaccination dangerous, they don't have to get vaccinated and then in most states if you have a religious reason, you can get out from a religious exemption and almost 20 states have a personal belief exemption. if you don't believe in vaccines you don't need to get your child vaccinated. california passed a new law that says only children who have a medical condition have an out from vaccination, everyone else has to get vaccinated so there is a group of parents suing
saying this interferes with their personal beliefs and interferes with their legal right to get their children an education supported by the state. >> rich, you're a daddy sitting by two daddies right here and you know how passionate some parents are about this subject matter and when they hear something like this, is this kind of paint them in a corner in it may. we'll have to see what the judge says but in california things were getting bad and had outbreaks of measles. in some schools one in four children were not getting vaccinated and that's an outbreak waiting to happen so we'll have to see what the judge comes down. i'll be surprised if they throw out the vaccine law. for those parents who have a strong belief, their only option may be homeschooling. >> this is a conversation that is far from over. >> or you have to move. >> one or the other like that. okay, rich, thanks so much. and a shake-up in the marvel universe. tony stark is stepping out of the iron man suit. in had is place a new character,

spider-man and part of marvel's idea to diversify and broaden its fan base and this is just another step in that and then, you know, the purists. you can't make everybody happy. some peep upset. there is a new minority character but it was written by a white guy. even that criticism is out there. >> always something to find. >> times are changing but the writer also talked about when he was at a signing and how much it meant to him when a young woman said, hey, thank you. i'm now being represented. it means a lot. >> that broadens the base. some people never into comic book characters a little black girl never was into comics now has a character she can look up to and a lot of people it's not surprising. something that strahan and i have known since the moment we were born and is that black women are superheroes. >> absolutely. >> so this is not a big thing to us. >> why, thank you. >> yes, and, mama, i agree. that is the truth. you no are we going to see riri in any movies. >> the plans aren't in place yet but you can bet they are going to be thinking about it and somewhere down the line -- >> we haven't heard the last of

we are back with that bombshell lawsuit raising big questions about sexual harassment in the workplace. former fox news host gretchen carlson getting a lot of reaction after those charges against her former boss roger ailes. abc's rebecca jarvis has more. >> reporter: she's a former miss america turned hawaii powered fox news anchor. >> welcome back. >> reporter: gretchen carlson who just weeks after her contract wasn't renewed now suing her former boss, roger ailes, for sexual harassment. >> and time now for my take. >> reporter: on her website carlson asking her fans to
#standwithgretchen. a 'stache tag that took off on certainly media. thousands weighing in with words like inexcusable and women deserve to live without harassment. carlson's allegations not unfamiliar to women. studies showing that one in four women in the u.s. face workplace harassment. one poll showing 70% of cases go unreported. ailes denies carlson's claims calling them wholly without merit. and, rebecca, here with us along with tory johnson, "gma's" workplace contributor and we have a lot to talk about. rebecca, there's obviously a difference between playful banter among co-workers and sexual harassment. what's the distinction? the law is specific about this, amy. it specifically defines sexual harassment in the workplace as unwelcome sexual advances or conduct that interferes with job performance and creates an intimidating hostile or offensive work environment. the difficulty here is proving those things when these cases actually go to court. >> all right. tory, if you recognize this
behavior, here's the million dollar question what do you do about it? >> so every situation is different and you really have to analyze the environment you're in, the people that you're dealing with, but there are three specific things that you can do. first is call it out immediately. we live in a culture where people feel entitled to say and do almost anything. you just look at social media and see the way people talk without regard to whether it's appropriate or even legal. and so sometimes people cross that line. so if it is inappropriate to you, you call somebody on it immediately. >> so you say that's offensive? that's offensive. this bothers me. i'm uncomfortable and you do it as clearly and confidently as possible. you also want to document the specifics. any time you're going to make some kind of claim that is as serious and as loaded as sexual harassment you better be prepared for your credibility to be questioned and for people to come after you so when you have a realtime record. you don't leave it up to memory to chance but rather you keep a journal in a safe place not on
your work computer. not on your desk at work where you can document specific dates, times, comments, what somebody was wearing, what witnesses were around. in he sort of specifics like that are going to become the evidence you'll need when somebody questions this seriousness of this, then finally report it and this is different depending on where you work, who you work with and who you are alleging this -- >> when it's the boss it's more difficult. >> it's very, very difficult so maybe go to a trusted colleague. rebecca and i were talking about that. sometimes it's a trusted colleague that you can go to for help and reassurance about how to nip this. sometimes it's a boss, it's hr, if you don't feel like you're getting any kind of satisfaction at work you can file a claim with the eeoc, the equal employment opportunity commission and have 180 days to do that. you don't need a lawyer to do it. you can do it yourself and also seeking legal advice is another option. >> rebecca, in your piece we heard just a fraction of what some women and men say they
experience actually get reported. what are companies doing to combat that and give people a way to report. >> most goes unreported and by the way you bring up a good point. it happens to men and women in the workplace and a lot of companies now have their own code of conduct. their own code of ethics. for example, apple is now saying not only does this work inside of our workplace, not only do we have a no tolerance policy here we won't work with companies that don't have those policies. >> so things are changing perhaps for the good. rebecca, tory, thanks so much. coming up next on "gma" your sunscreen reality check, does yours really protect you in the water when we come back. the ford freedom sales event is on! with our best offers of the year! ♪ i'm free to do what i want... and 0% financing is back! on a huge selection of ford cars, trucks and suvs. plus get an extra $1000 smart bonus on specially tagged vehicles. that's freedom from interest... and freedom to choose with ford. america's best selling brand. ♪ i'm free, baby! now get 0% financing

we're back now with the new sunscreen study out of northwestern university raising by questions. researchers say four out of ten sunscreens they looked at are not doing the job they're supposed to. >> so joining us now to break it down to help us understand had did dr. whitney bowe, a certified dermatologist. >> so tell us the significance of these studies. >> you got to take this study with a grain of salt. you know, these researchers only looked at 65 of the most popular sunscreens on amazon.com so they included like a hodgepodge of different products and included
sunscreens for the beach but also included moisturizers, tinted lotions, you know, products that are marketed as beauty products so what you'd expect from a beauty product they are using as part of your makeup routine in the morning is completely different from what you'd expect from a sunscreen using on your family. if you're walking from your car to your office, it's perfectly acceptable to use a moisturizer with sunscreen than may not be water resistant, if you're sweating and swimming, then you want to make sure those sunscreens are meeting all of the criteria. >> makes sense. >> if you're sweating and swimming, i talked about my girls, you have to reapply. >> yes, you do. so really the take home message from this study, michael, thinking about how water impacts sunscreen so the number one reason the products in this study failed they weren't water resistant so you got to look for water resistant but you also have to take necessary precautions so first you want to apply the sunscreen, 15 minutes before the skin gets wet. so you don't know how many types i see people right by the swimming pool rubbing sunscreen
and spraying down their kids and jump right in the pool. it's like that is sliding off your skin and wait 15 minutes. second, you are to reapply once an hour if your skin is wet. reapply every two hours, that's dry skin. if you're sweating, if you're getting wet you got to reapply every single hour and then last when you reapply you really want to reapply ideally to dry skin. get everybody out of the water, towel dry, then reapply, and then wait those 15 minutes again before you go back in. >> great information. i had not heard that what you were saying about waiting 15 minutes. more you can do. sunscreen is great. >> you can't rely just on sunscreen so sunglasses, broad him hats and sun protective clothing but be careful if you're near a body of water. if you're near water you're getting hit from the uv rays from above and also reflecting off of the water below so a double whammy. your sunscreen is doing double duty and be careful near water. >> i was at nevis this weekend
in the west indies and women empowerment conference and they talked about sunscreen protection and this wonderful guy harry from croates, natural -- >> it's amazing and good even for skin of color. >> especially. >> all right. >> thank you. >> i'm glad we're inside having this conversation. thank you. let's go outside to ginger. and, some say from the way, we are celebrating their ninth anniversary so happy anniversary it is a little sweaty out here this morning as heat index is already 87 in new york city but look what is happening close to nashville tennessee water rescues going on six to even 8 inches of rain, falling quickly in the last couple of hours so this is happening right now with those flash flood warnings in parts of the kentucky and tennessee, and you will see rain later on, along with the heat, if you are out, you know, lets take a look at your local news. ginger, in rain around here, we're feeling good, and take a look outside we have hazy sunshine build ago cross

back now with all the excitement at wimbledon and let's go back across the pond to england where the world's best tennis players are competing and lara is on the scene with all the action. how are you doing out there, lara? >> i'm great, michael. i wish you were here but i am very happy to be with patrick mcenroe and serena is on centre court right now playing her semifinal match against elena
vesnina. when she's done venus williams takes the court so could we see an all williams final? patrick, i'll ask first about serena. she is on fire out there. playing an unseeded player. who is actually gotten a couple games off serena. >> she's gotten a couple games but only two in the opening set. serena came out today absolutely on fire, lara. that's the way she's been playing the last couple of matches here. she's gunning for number 22. trying to tie steffi graf. hasn't been able to do it. win a major since last year at wimbledon. as i said from the beginning, i'm loving her chances this year. >> all right, so that's looking great. let's talk about venus who is also on fire and you know what, this is her first time making a semi in seven years. how has she been able to do it. >> i'm telling you this is one of the all-time stories to me in women's tennis because venus williams has gone through so much in the last five, six years with her sjogren's syndrome having to handle that, having to deal with that. obviously she's getting a bit older. she's 36 so this is to me one of the most remarkable stories in women's tennis, i love the
competitiveness she's showing. these aplaying with more consistency and has a very tough act -- >> angelique kerber, though, considered one of the favors here. do you think she can do it. >> i think she can, lara, but i think it's going to be tough because kerber beat serena, you remember, in the australian open final this year. she's very feisty. she hits the ball very flat and early and she is an excellent counterpuncher. i would put kerber as the slight favorite but if venus can come big, big serves and big returns no doubt we could have an all williams sisters final. >> i'm rooting for that so big and i'm wondering if we see an all williams will we get full serena or do you think it's tough for her to play the way she can against big sis. >> i think it's tough for both of them and played in so many big matches. as they've both gotten older they handle it better. certainly the last few years it's serena that's been the huge story and she's been the big favorite and she looks up to her older sister so much. she says she set the path for me
to do it. so i think it'll be a good match if they do play, remember, they played at the u.s. open last year. it went three sets. but you just -- it's hard for me to imagine anybody beating serena the way she looks. >> by the way you guys, i don't know if you know then after they each play their semifinal today the williams sisters are playing together tonight in doubles. that is a long day. >> i'm telling you, they are so amazing that they continue to -- trust me when they go out to play doubles they're not looking to practice and get some swings in, they're going to win. i think they should play mixed doubles too and i think that the only person they should play with would be michael strahan. >> i love that. >> that's the guy. >> you know who works almost as hard as the williams sisters is your brother who not only is commentating for espn, bbc but also coaching raonic who is playing federer. is he able to wear all the hats. >> somehow he manages to do it. the man is a genius, he's awesome. great to be in the booth with
him. could be interesting. he'll be commentating, raonic/federer and coaching but somehow he will figure it all out. >> we want to hear about the guys tomorrow. right now we are rooting for those williams sisters big time and you guys should stick around too. we'll be watching wimbledon. you guys have maxwell performing coming up on "good morning america." bye for now from wimbledon. ♪
i survived breast cancer. if the doctors hadn't caught it early i might not be
sitting here. so i'm outraged that pat toomey voted to defund planned parenthood... ...which thousands of pennsylvania women depend on for cancer screenings. pat toomey was even willing to shut down the federal government to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. shut down the government over planned parenthood? i think we ought to shut down pat toomey. women vote is responsible for the content of this advertising.

i think morning has been just as rough if not worst than the last couple. we have seen lots of delays, in fact, on the the paoli thorndale line inbound they are now saying 40 minute delays on all trains, because of the equipment problems. i don't though to what extent that has to do with the heat but i think that is a possibility. other trains have been so overcrowded they have been bypassing stations, close to the city, once again, we have seen that on a number of trains as well. we have seen a huge delay here on i-95 southbound side, still over an hour, from woodhaven into the vine, is there still a crash southbound girard in the right lane. would i think alternates like southbound boulevard and this is schuylkill by the boulevard, is there a crash off to the shoulder there just beyond, the overpass. a rough morning. you mentioned the heat. the lets go to meteorologist david murphy for more. >> way worse than yesterday, matt. we are up to 82 degrees but dew points in the city and every where highlighted in it or range are in the 70's. that is oppressive humidity. this afternoon 95 is your
high. it will feel more like 100. we have that excessive heat warning today and tomorrow. today there could be a an afternoon then are storm, tomorrow, there will be some strong storms potentially in some spots late in the day or tomorrow night, and then on saturday, it is still hot with a high of 92 but math the math, humidity will drop and we won't be as oppressive saturday. >> thanks, david. bill cosby heads to court in another case criminal a section call the thrown out against him. that story on "action news" at noon. plus outrage in minnesota over another police involved killing. powe protesters call iteration profiling. aftermath was broadcast on facebook live. gain wade is a guest host with live with kelly, that is up next.
