7:04 am
similar evacuation at jfk. that scare provoked by loud noises from olympic celebrations. hundreds of people were able to push through doors and get onto the tarmac right next to planes. that's a normally restricted area and security risk and this morning they're investigating to find out where those noises came from. amy. >> what a frightening evening, kayna, thank you very much. now to those tropical threats, storms moving toward the atlantic and gulf coast and north carolina facing a tropical storm watch. ginger here with the latest. >> good morning to you. three areas of concern. we've got gaston out there that will stay out away from land but that, of course, is the first major hurricane of the season. but it is the tropical depressions both by the east coast there with the tropical storm watch in effect for parts of the outer banks and north carolina. that is for tuesday. so this is coming at us more imminently. you can see the path there, it turns back out to sea not without giving quite a bit of rain and wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour tuesday. then the timing goes wednesday
7:05 am
into thursday when we start to be concerned about tropical depression nine. again, these will race for names. we'll have to see which one develops first. it turns and makes its way toward florida. toward that big bend and just north of tampa at this point. how the computer models have it. it will be mostly a heavy rain and wind event. the race for the white house and donald trump announcing he will deliver a major speech on immigration this week. trying to clear up confusion after he and hsent conflicting messages last week. cecilia vega has the story. >> reporter: good morning. that speech will be in arizona and all eyes will be watching to see if donald trump clarifies what many now view to be a murky position on one of his signature policy issues. this morning, donald trump prepping for a major speech on immigration. the very speech he recently canceled during his campaign shake-up. now the candidate has a new

7:08 am
the foundation and a top clinton adviser. abc's david wright here with the latest on that. good morning. >> good morning, the trump campaign has been calling the clinton foundation a massive pay for play operation accusing them of selling access to the clinton state department. well, these e-mails don't prove that but they do show close ties between the foundation and clinton's inner circle. that woman leaving a campaign fund-raiser with hillary clinton last night is huma abedin, one of clinton's closest aides. this morning, new questions about whether aberdeen arranged special access for big contributors to the clinton foundation during clinton's tenure as secretary of state. e-mails released as part of a lawsuit by the conservative group citizens united reveal close ties between the two senior staffs. in one exchange, foundation executive doug band offers names for a state department lunch with chinese president sue jintao, three of them executives

7:10 am
out of nothing. and as if huma abedin didn't have enough on her plate today there is another scandal involving her husband anthony weiner, he resigned from congress in disgrace after a sexting scandal. he is back in the news today. "the new york post" redaling a whole new round of sordid sex messages. >> let's talk about it with matthew dowd and hillary clinton and those -- that news story as well. anthony wiener, a third time. this is going to get in the way of their message, also the continuing drip, drip, drip of these e-mails even as hillary clinton says and their contention is it shows no special action. >> it's an amazing situation that neither of these candidates, donald trump or hillary clinton, can seem to put away the other one because of their own problems that have developed in the course of this. i think we talk about the changes in donald trump's campaign. the best person that donald trump has going for him is julian assange who has the capacity to release a bunch more
tv-commercial
7:11 am
e-mails that could get hillary clinton into trouble. i think we'll see it for the next 70 days. >> you saw this morning that new ad that cecilia talked about. i'll play a little about it focused on the economy. >> in hillary clinton's america, the middle class gets crushed spending goes up, taxes go up. hundreds of thousands of jobs disappear. it's more of the same but worse. >> i think a lot of supporters say, hey, it's about time. there is an ad focused on the number one issue in the campaign and focused on what everybody wants, change. >> absolutely, that's the first time i think in 400 days we've actually seen a message that was pointed and that was right on. the economy is the number one issue. the people are upset with the status quo in the course of this and it's the first time we've seen an ad like that but that will not help unless donald trump stays on message. >> you have this speech coming up on wednesday, immigration, his signature issue, can he come up with a consistent position? >> well, he's changed positions so many times. we ouths to get ginger involved in forecasting where he will be next on this in the course of
7:12 am
this. he's got to figure it out at some point. he's not a nuanced politician and if he tries to be his supporters will wonder about him. >> matt dowd, thanks very much. >> all right, now on to the death of dwyane wade's cousin putting chicago gun violence in the spotlight. two suspects, brothers who were on parole for previous gun charges now in custody and abc's alex perez is in chicago with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, amy. dwyane wade has long spoken out against the violence here in chicago. his cousin was walking down the street with her newborn when she was killed. less than 24 hours after the three-time nba champion dwyane wade made this appeal to end gun violence. >> we can start a conversation. we can start the work today and hopefully eventually you know, we ccan stop it. >> reporter: his own cousin nykea aldridge gunned down on the south side. >> we got a female shooting suspect. >> reporter: now brothers, darwin and derren sorells are

missing, we're going to tell you why and then michael phelps finally reveals the song that inspired his famous phelps face. there it is during the rio olympics. that is all coming up. but we are going to begin with that heated debate stirred up by colin kaepernick, the 49ers quarterback refusing to stand for the national anthem before the game. fans protesting his jersey burring it, you see some of that right there and now he's speaking out to defend his actions. abc's ryan smith is here with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, george, amy. colin kaepernick is speaking out and not backing down with fans by the thousands attacking him for refusing to stand up and some burning his jersey. he says he is by sitting down issen stag up for what he thinks needs to change. >> here's my salute to you. >> reporter: colin kaepernick under fire from fans and fellow players after his refusal to stand up for the national anthem doubling down overnight. >> i'm going to continue to stand with the people oppressed. when there's significant change and feel like that flag
7:32 am
represents who it's supposed to represent i'll stand. >> reporter: kaepernick to the runner. >> reporter: the 49ers dual threat quarterback with the rocket arm and lightning quick feet staying seated during the national anthem at friday's presales game telling the nfl network i'm not going to stand up and show pride in a fashion for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. >> i have experienced this. people close to me have experienced this. so it's something that needs to be addressed. >> reporter: kaepernick clarifying sunday that refusing to honor the flag doesn't mean he's disrespecting the military. >> people are dying in vain because this country isn't holding their end of the bargain up as far as, you know, giving freedom and justice and liberty to everybody. >> reporter: the 28-year-old frequently outspoken on civil rights issues online seemingly began his protest weeks earlier sitting during the anthem for the team's previous two preseason games. though few seemed to notice but after friday's game, outrage, thousands flooding his twitter page with comments. giants receiver victor cruz
7:33 am
saying sitting down isn't the right way to stand up. >> you have to stand up there with your team and understand that it's just a game and what's going on around the country is bigger than you. >> reporter: others defending him. mark cuban weighing in, he didn't throw a bomb, fire a shot, start a riot, throw a punch. he just sat there quietly. kaepernick says the vitriol he's now face something worth it to make a point. >> i've had a lot of people come up to me and say, you know, i really respect you for what you're doing and what you're standing for. >> reporter: the nfl telling abc news in a statement players are encouraged but not required to stand during the national anthem. but when asked if this will get him cut, the quarterback says he doesn't know adding that if he's cut, he feels he did what he feels is right and he can live with that at the end of the day, george. >> okay, ryan, thanks. let's bring in espn's stephen a. smith for more. you've done a lot on this whole issue of violence and have had special shows on it. what's your take on what he is doing. >> i understand it and i respect it.
7:34 am
i respectfully disagree with how he went about doing it because it's certainly not something i would have done but at the same time we also have to understand that the first amendment to our constitution is freedom of speech, freedom of expression and that's one of the things he exercised here. he wanted to make a point and as mark cuban pointed out he didn't, you know, didn't plant a bomb, didn't shoot anybody. he didn't do anything. he made a silent protest. he's an unabashed supporter of black lives matter. he addressed the issue of police brutality as insensitive to why he took the position he took. we understand it and, you know, a lot of people within the black community i can tell you for a fact absolutely agree with him. a lot of people don't agree with how he went about doing it. >> let's get into that. what about the criticism about how he went about doing it. some saying it's a distraction from his job. >> well, you could -- that's a valid point in some people's eyes but people take stances all the time. if you remember when trayvon martin transpired and other things happened as it pertained to the actions against
7:35 am
african-americans you had nba players putting on t-shirts and some thought that was a distraction and obvious they beg to differ. you see silent protests taking place in recent memory. people who are against the positions that these athletes take will always find an excuse to say that it is a distraction. but what they have to understand particularly when it's emanating from the black community in particular a black athlete the mere fact that it's being debated or people are questioning whether or not it's a distraction, what you're saying to yourself is to not supposed to be a distraction. we're trying to bring attention to an issue. colin kaepernick felt that way and even though some disagree there are other was would stand by him and say they don't have a problem with what he's doing. >> what will this mean for his job? >> well, it depends. if he can still play, it won't mean much. it'll mean a lot in terms of endorsements. he's definitely going to feel the pinch there and i think he spoke to the fact that he certainly knows that's coming. as it pertains to him having a job in the nfl i don't think
7:36 am
this is an issue. i think the fact that he looks subpar and coming off a season where he was a bit subpar, only through six touchdown, five interacceptses, he doesn't look that impressive and there's rumors as to whether or not he's going to get cut. in the end if you can play, there will be somebody who will give you a job because their primary obligation is to try to win football days. if you cannot play they will find an excuse to get rid of you. it is that simple. this won't determine his future as a quarterback in the nfl. his play will. >> okay, stephen a. smith, thanks very much. >> no problem. now to the latest twist in the mysterious murder of a florida professor, abc news obtaining dramatic video showing the moment police told his ex-wife about the shooting, two men are now under arrest but police are investigating the possibility his ex-wife or her family were involved. abc's matt gutman has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, abc news has obtained video showing the moment wendi adelson learns from police her former husband
7:37 am
dan markel has been shot at his home. >> your ex-husband, he's not going to survive. >> my god. when did this happen? >> in july 2014 the florida state university law professor was shot in the head in the garage of his tallahassee home in what police say was a targeted killing. >> scared for the kids. >> reporter: later in her five-hour-long interview with police adelson relays a curious comment she says her brother charlie made on the morning of the murder about hi tv set he bought for her. >> he knew danny treated me badly and there was always this joke, i looked into hiring a hit man and it was cheaper to get you this tv. >> reporter: if it's a joke it may be an eye opening one because police believe charlie adelson has a link to one of the two suspected hit men arrested this may for markel's killing. both of whom have pleaded not guilty. police allege that after a bitter divorce, the adelson family had a desperate desire to
7:38 am
relocate wendi and the children to south florida. a move that markel fought successfully in court. no one from the adelson family has been charged and they deny they have any connection to the murder. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, new york. >> our thanks to matt for that. the aadahl sons' lawyer says an extensive investigation has not tied any of them to that murder. coming up, outrage growing to comments the maine governor made about race. what his response to some saying he should resign. then some mounting frustration over high epipen costs. breaking news go a generic version next. a surprising new report about children and sports. should your kids play more than one at a time. our insiders join us in two minutes.

different kind of political story starts out in may and their governor, paul lepage, under fire after leaving a voice mail full of profanities for a political -- >> this is governor paul richard lepage. i would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you [ bleep ]. i've spent my life helping black people and you little son of a [ bleep ], socialist [ bleep ]. i am after you. >> we cut out a few of the beeps. not the first time it's happened with this governor, though. >> he might want to acknowledge some tourette's syndrome in that. i mean here's a guy that describes himself as donald trump before donald trump was cool. he's done this throughout his career, throughout his life. this actually just took it one step over the edge. >> during a press conference governor lepage apologized for the expletives in that voice mail but then went on in that same press conference to again cast maine's drug problem in racial terms, let's take a look.
7:42 am

jarvis joins us. tell us about the new developments just in. >> just in this morning. good morning to you. so the epipen price now for a generic version is going to be half the price of the original. the epipen maker this morning mylan announced there will be the new generic version available in several weeks that will cost $300 for a two-pack, half the price of the original so the prices, they're moving in the right direction. they're moving lower. there's also for people out there who are a little bit confused about this. there's also another different alternative to the epipen. it's called the adrena-click available at a lower price than the epipen, you can get it with a good rx coupon for $140. some co-pays will get you there lower but you have to talk to your doctor because it's so important you get the prescription from your doctor for the one you want. >> rebecca, you talked about alternatives. some have been turning to expired epipens in order to save some money is that ever a good idea. >> this is not a good idea.

7:45 am
don't know who they are. so this is a huge push now in youth sports about diversifying and we need to know some numbers here about 70% of kids who participate in youth sports drop out by age 13. and reality check, only about 3% to 11% will make it to play at the college level. if that is your goal or your child's goal you better understand college coaches, yes, they want great hockey players, want great soccer players but more than that they want great athletes and that means being rell rounded. >> what do you do, jen, if you buy into this as a parent but your child really just wants to play that one sport? >> well, this is my life, you guys, because you know i have a 16-year-old daughter who plays ice hockey. she's been playing for 11 years and forced her to take three months off a year and we forced her kind of to pick up a sport which she's done reluctantly. coaches and parents need to take the lead of organizations like usa hockey who has been on the forefront of this.
