7:02 am
the country. you didn't wear a jacket. >> i had a cozy sweater and got into a warm car so that might be why i didn't wear a jacket. right out to rob marciano who is in ellicottville, new york, where they are seeing a lot of snow this morning. good morning. >> not so warm here. snowing all night across western new york. the sidewalks and streets have been plowed several times already. about 10 inches falling here. 20 inches in some other spots. you know, it's been a pretty slow start to the snow season. a mild fall which has great lakes primed for a big snow event and this arctic blast is producing just that. overnight dangerous pileups across the great lakes as winter plows in with a vengeance. >> this is a skating rink. >> reporter: 70 vehicles slamming together on interstate 90 near eerie, pennsylvania. this is what it looked like stuck inside one of those tipped over vehicles. rescue crews racing to pull people out from the mess. >> we have some people trapped in vehicles.
7:03 am
>> reporter: slick roads causing this 50-car pileup in lake county, ohio. and this crash in lansing, michigan, where three people died. the blinding snowstorms coming in fast. catching some people off guard. >> driving conditions in these lake-effect snow bands can deteriorate in a hurry. just ten minutes ago there was barely any snow. the storms fueled by that arctic blast moving over the warm great lakes. >> we're going to spin. >> reporter: the instability so strong in created this waterspout over lake erie. >> we're looking at two, two inches an hour. once you plow you got to replow and keep salting and plow yourself back up. >> reporter: nonstop. >> it is nonstop. definitely nonstop. >> and they're going to have their hands full again today. the roads in and out of these towns, they are dicey for sure. this snow is pretty light. i'm not sure that's good or bad for clearing roads but it's going to keep coming down. we expect at least another foot. lake-effect snow warnings in effect through tomorrow and then a larger system coming on sunday
7:04 am
which means it may be snowing for the buffalo bills game against the steelers sunday afternoon. guys, back to you. >> thank you, rob. you and everybody else be safe on the roads. let's go to ginger. more snow and colder temperatures on the way. >> that next widespread system that rob was just alluding to already creating a mess in nevada so they're also seeing the slide-off, and pileups and that will regenerate east of the rockies and drop snow and i'm talking a half foot or more it looks like just chicago or north chicago to milwaukee. right through parts of michigan that will getting hit and into parts of new york and new england. this will take us through the end of the weekend and then arctic air is coming along with it, right? so many folks feeling like winter this morning, the feels like in dallas, 28, nashville, 16. the 20s here but for minneapolis, minot, 26 below and, you guys, i don't want to show this. the arctic express will settle in by next week. this is how ugly it's looking. >> did you just say settle in?
7:05 am
>> settle in, the pattern looks like december. >> oh. >> and below average. so sorry. >> i'm not sure we can thank you. but, mike, talking about that bills game, what was it like playing in the snow. >> i love it. you slide around and hit -- it's fun. >> you hit each other. >> it's more fun than cold rain. that's the worst. >> we'll move on now to the trump transition. president-elect held another thank you rally in iowa last night introduced their governor for ambassador to chain as we learn he plans to stay on as executive producer of "celebrity apprentice" while president. abc's tom llamas is in des moines with the story. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. from a very chilly iowa and that's right, it appears donald trump is going to keep a financial tie in show business while questions linger over his real estate business. this as president-elect trump extends an olive branch to china with a very important diplomatic pick.
7:06 am
president-elect donald trump announcing how he's going to deal with the growing superpower. >> we have to improve is our relationship with china. >> reporter: in iowa trump telling the crowd he's fixing the problem by appointing their governor, terry branstad to be the ambassador to china. largely because branstad has had a long, friendly relationship with china's leader and the job won't be easy. trump has a lot of problems with china. >> you have the massive theft of intellectual property putting unfair taxes on our companies, not helping with the menace of north korea like they should. and the at will and massive devaluation of their currency and product dumping. other than that they've been wonderful. >> reporter: and announcing another high-profile hire. andrew puzder to be labor secretary. his company owns hardee's and
7:07 am
carl's jr. best known for these ads. >> the all natural burger. >> reporter: he is a critic of obamacare and has argued against substantially raising the minimum wage. the trump team, he is a proven job creator and abc learning the president-elect will be keeping another job besides commander in chief. >> you're fired. >> reporter: trump staying on as executive producer of "celebrity apprentice" now hosted by arnold schwarzenegger. >> everybody is saying i should run for president. let me ask you a question, meat loaf, should i run? >> absolutely. >> reporter: when he announced his candidacy he spoke about "the apprentice". >> i'm giving up a lot. you know "the apprentice" was renewed. >> are you going to do it. >> i can't do it because you're not allowed to do it if you do this. >> reporter: trump's spokeswoman says we'll get more details on this at a news conference next thursday when he talks about his business ties and i've just gotten off the phone with the top transition source who tells me this morning speaker paul ryan for the first time will
7:08 am
head to trump tower in manhattan to meet with the president-elect on trump's home turf. this is another sign that both these republican leaders are trying to mend fences. george. >> okay, tom, thanks very much. a lot to talk about with jon karl, down in washington. jon, let's begin with that news of "celebrity apprentice," again, something new with donald trump every single day. but it's only going to add to questions about his conflicts of interest in the white house. >> reporter: this is something else. in a way it's hardly a surprise. "the apprentice" is his pride and joy. if he could find a way to do it while president of the united states, he would still host the program but, george, it raises serious questions, conflicts of interest questions, we've never seen a president have an interest in a broadcast network and raise questions about the advertisers, who spend money on the program and will they try to curry favor with the president, serious questions, but not all that surprising. >> now we see his cabinet picks and have that new secretary of labor nominee, the new nominee for environmental protection agency opposed by environmentalist, the secretary
7:09 am
of labor nominee opposed by organized labor. no question you have a new sheriff in town. >> reporter: absolutely and a conservative cabinet emerging, one filled with business leaders and military leaders. one that conservatives can like but i'll tell you meeting with paul ryan as you heard tom say, this -- he is headed towards a potential real conflict with conservatives in congress as he puts out his agenda. he is readying things that they had like on tax cuts and deregulation, but also a very big infrastructure program that i can tell you that the trump inner circle is talking about how they may be fighting with the likes of paul ryan on and trying to create alliances with democrats, more consistent with what democrats would propose. >> depending on the details that could be a real clash. >> reporter: it could be a real clash. if you look at this you have a president that is not particularly identify on cal or republican. harry reid had an amazing comment about donald trump. he said, quote, i have to say he's not as bad as i thought he
7:10 am
would be." you may be looking at effectively the first independent president of the united states. >> meantime, at that ceremony with harry reid you saw hillary clinton back in the spotlight. let's take a look at something she said. >> the epidemic of fake news that flooded social media over the past year, it's now clear that so-called fake news can have real world consequences. this isn't is about politics or partisanship. lives are at risk. >> interesting choice there. she's not going away. >> reporter: absolutely not. you know, after that contentious 2000 campaign which al gore won the popular vote and basically disappeared after the election. that won't be the case with hillary clinton. she won a big popular vote victory. her people tell you she got more votes for president than any white male in america. she remains the most prominent voice in the democratic party. >> thanks very much. a lot more coming up this sunday on "this week."
7:11 am
michael. >> all right, thank you, george. now to some breaking olympics news. let's go right to linsey davis and, linsey doping investigators are making a big announcement about a thousand russian athletes. >> that's right, good morning to you, michael. this jaw-dropping report implicates eight russian medalist, four from sochi in 2014 and at least four from london in 2012 as being part of a state-sponsored doping program. more than a thousand russian athletes are implicated in the final part of this report which first exposed doping by russia earlier this year resulting in hundreds of russian athletes being banned from the rio games. the report says none of these athletes acted alone but were part of an institutional conspiracy involving russia's secret service. the report author, richard mclaren appointed by the world anti-doping agency says it took place on an unprecedented scale. according to the report the system was refined over the course of the olympic games in london and sochi as well as the
7:12 am
2013 world athletic championships in moscow. russia won 72 medals at the london games and 33 medals in sochi. the international olympic committee says they will certainly follow up with those mentioned in the report. michael. >> all right, thank you, linsey. that completely changes -- you didn't win a medal, maybe you move up. completely changes the olympics. now to a big travel alert about a change that could be coming to your flights. officials are now considering allowing wi-fi calls from planes. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with more on that. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. this is something we've been talking about for years. could you actually make a phone call on an airplane? what the transportation department is saying is they are considering allowing wi-fi calls on planes with one caveat. that you would be told when you buy your ticket you could actually -- somebody could be making a call on your plane. they're also considering an outright ban on it so up in the air but this is an opening from the government. could we have wi-fi calls on
7:13 am
planes. >> i like that, david, it's up in the air. for years by the way what's up with this? we were told it was dangerous to be on our phones in flight so what's changed. >> reporter: so we were talking about cell signals and whether cell signals would interfere with the aircraft. you already have wi-fi on the plane. you're doing texting or e-mailing now so as it's getting broader, more broadband aircraft could you use wi-fi, not cells to have a phone call. that is the difference here. >> okay. well, david, a lot of people present party included not so happy about this. >> yeah. >> do not want to hear all those calls. >> a chance to comment. >> i like the fact that people don't think you'll talk with them anyway. hours of peace. another alert. four major stores being accused of misleading shoppers with their sale prices and paula faris is tracking that and those big deals may not be as big as they look. >> reporter: are these advertisers ever selling that item for that original retail
7:14 am
price listed on the tag? the california city attorney who filed the suit believes four major retailers are engaged in deceptive advertising. he wants them fined and is seeking an injunction to prevent them from using this shady advertising tactic. this morning, just in time for the holiday shopping rush, the l.a. city attorney is suing four major retailers accusing them of making customers believe they're getting a better deal than they actually are. >> customers have the right to know the truth about the prices they are paying. >> reporter: macy's, jcpenney, sears and kohl's all allegedly using false reference pricing. the lawsuits claim in january, kohl's allegedly advertised the sale of belted cargo shorts for a sale price of $35.99 from an original price of $60. but the shorts the lawsuit cams were never sold for more than 35.99 and in april the complaint states, sears advertised a
7:15 am
kenmore washing machine with a regular price of $1,179.99 for a sale price of $999.99 even though sears allegedly never offered that item for more than $999.99. also according to this lawsuit, macy's prominently advertises that its false discounts are being offered for only a limited time in order to create a false sense of urgency and to mislead customers that they will miss out. >> a lawsuit like this sends a very strong mess ago to the retail market that if they are engaging in false advertising, that they'll think twice about those practices. >> reporter: jcpenney, sears and macy's tell abc news they do not comment on pending litigation. kohl's did not respond to a request for comment. and this lawsuit could have real effects across the country as well since nearly every state has laws similar to california in regards to deceptive advertising. it really sends a message for
7:16 am
them to stop false advertising. maybe it wasn't on sale to begin with. >> i'm a sucker for the line that goes through. yes, i'm getting a deal, right? >> i got it for 98% off. you and me both. >> we will celebrate a great american life. so many weighing in on john glenn. including president obama, he said that he was the last of america's first astronauts. he's left us but propelled by their example we know that our future here on earth compels us to keep reaching for the heavens. he died yesterday at the age of 95 after a life defined by adventure and duty from the battlefields of world war ii to the frontiers of space and the floor of the senate. fighter pilot, astronaut and statesman john glenn was a true american hero. >> as the astronaut prepares for spaceflight. >> reporter: one of the original seven mercury astronauts. >> zero g and i feel fine, capsule is turning around, oh, that view is tremendous. >> reporter: in 1962 the first american to orbit the earth. his friendship seven capsule
7:17 am
circled three types in seven hours hitting speeds of 17,500 miles an hour. >> i'd like to be cocky enough to think i did a good job on that flight which i did but i think whoever had done a good job on that flight would be a great comeback for america. i happened to be in the right place at the right height. >> reporter: a highly decorated marine pilot in two wars and after that spaceflight watched around the world the most famous of those original seven astronauts. >> welcome to washington, welcome back to this planet. >> reporter: he parlayed that to a career in politics winning an ohio splat seat in 1974. >> discovery with the crew of six astronaut heroes and one american legend. >> reporter: in 1998 while still in the senate, glenn returned to space at the age of 77. his nine-day mission aboard the shuttle "discovery" discovered weightlessness on aging. >> one thing i promised annie the day we were married in addition to our wedding vow, of course, i would do everything i could to keep life from being boring. >> reporter: in 2012 he received america's highest civilian honor, the medal of freedom.
7:18 am
>> john glenn became a hero in every sense of the word. >> reporter: glenn once told ohio state graduates that we're more fulfilled when we're involved in something bigger than ourselves. >> i guess i've looked at my whole life as being sort of service to my country. >> reporter: and for this trailblazing space traveler -- >> godspeed, john glenn. >> reporter: -- it was an amazing ride. and there you see the capitol, the flags flying at half-mast today at the u.s. capital. john glenn searchinged in the senate in ohio for more than 20 years and call him an american hero, he looked the part, lived the part, he mentioned his wife annie, married for 73 years. >> she survives him? >> yes. >> so our thoughts and prayers go out to her. ginger and now a lot of weather. >> we are just barely missing that freezing line in savannahh but freeze warnings go through houston and austin, the numbers are local weather in 30 secretary of defense, first the weekend

7:31 am
president-elect trump holding another thank you rally in iowa as we learn he will stay on as executive producer of "celebrity apprentice." the show is now hosted by arnold schwarzenegger. our very own nick watt is standing by with some big news about cheerleaders and the olympics. there he is literally standing by with cheerleaders. all the details coming up on our big board. there you go, nick. >> shake those pom-poms. >> a lot of changes could be coming to the olympics. we will begin with that violent encounter where a student was shot by a officer for wielding knives. matt gutman has the story from reno. >> reporter: good morning. that father saying the officer should not have pulled the trigger. he says his son may lose a lung, may suffer brain damage. that as we're learning this morning that the officer who pulled his gun had multiple n nonlethal options at his disposal. >> responding to hug high school for an officer involved shooting with one student down.
7:32 am
>> reporter: this morning, mounting scrutiny of this school police officer shooting of a knife-wielding teen. >> he just shot the kid. >> reporter: the 14-year-old's family saying he wasn't a lone wolf attacker. >> this is clearly a situation where you had a very mentally unhinged student attempting to keep people away from him by swinging knives in the air. >> reporter: lawyer david houston tells abc news the boy is a troubled child with special needs. crying out for help. >> if that's worthy of execution then i guess i'm standing on a different platform than those people that think it appropriate to shoot a child. >> reporter: his father posting on facebook that his son brought the knives to school in order to defend himself against a gang of bullies. and while we're not showing his face, in the video his mouth and nose seem to be bloodied. as some students film, he slashes at the air. lunging at others. >> back up, back up. >> reporter: seconds later that officer arrives. he fires that single shot.
7:33 am
>> all units, dbw with shots fired with a student down at hug high school. >> reporter: that officer then renders first aid. the boy is now in the hospital in critical condition. the officer on routine paid administrative life. the school superintendent commended the response of emergency personnel and that officer. >> each has a response team trained to react in a split second. yesterday at hug high school both of those plans worked flawlessly. >> reporter: but the school district police chief offering a more qualified response. >> please remember that these accounts don't tell the complete story. this is an ongoing investigation and as such we will not be able to release any details. >> reporter: now, reno pd tells me there is no hard and fast rule about the use of lethal force. only that it be proportionate to the threat and that's what they'll investigate here. yesterday we spoke to some students who said their parents were outraged asking what if that officer's bullet had missed
7:34 am
and hit another child. george. >> one of the big questions. okay, matt gutman, thanks very much. let's talk to dan abrams about this. always so difficult to second-guess these decisions, split-second decisions by police officers but as the father pointed out other options were available. >> right, any time there is an officer-related shooting there will be an investigation and there's going to be a very serious one here and the question is going to be exactly what else did this officer have, for example, a taser, if he did, why couldn't he have used the taser instead of firing his weapon. and i think that the point that matt made at the very end will be really relevant. it's not just going to be family of this kid who are going to be asking these questions but the family of other kids that were there that can certainly end up leading to some sort of civil lawsuit down the road. >> how relevant this young man may have been bullied. >> look, now let's switch focus to the investigation of him. right. kids swinging knife there, number one, self-defense, right. which is if he was bloodied and
7:35 am
he had been attacked and he's effectively responding, that could be a self-defense claim but most importantly if anyone was thinking about charging this kid because, you know, he is waving a knife there, if he had been bullied i think that will very much weigh into the decision of prosecutors to decide whether to prosecute at all if so, what to prosecute him with. look, if he was bullied and he had just come out of a fight i don't care what you think about what he did and it may have been the wrong way to handle it, but what a horribly sad situation that if this kid was bullied, that he responds this way. he ends up getting shot. you know, it's just so heartbreaking all aspects of it and i think prosecutors and lulu will take that into consideration if that's the case. >> so many kids with phones. we're likely to see other pieces of video as well. >> right, that will be part of 9 investigation, right? they'll want to see more than just this one to see how did this start? what led him to do that?
7:36 am
and just as importantly what led the police officer to take that shot >> a lot of layers to the story, dan abrams, thanks very much. now to the latest on that twin murder mystery, a woman charged with intentionally killing her sister by driving their car off a cliff. well, she is being extra indicted as her sister's ex-boyfriend speaks out and abc's mara schiavocampo is here with more on that. good morning, mara. >> reporter: good morning that man, the ex-boyfriend telling abc news the sisters had an extremely volatile relationship. at times they were best friends. other times getting into intense physical fights adding he thinks this is all just a tragic accident. >> warrior one and two are similar. >> reporter: this morning alexandria duval preparing to fight for her freedom. the 38-year-old who has been indicted on second degree murder charges this morning is being extradited from new york to hawaii where police say she intentionally drove her car off

you better believe the martha stewart brand will have a problem with it. >> her name isn't khloe, kim or kourtney. it's angela, so i don't understand why she can't do that. why is it such a big deal, her name? it's her official maim? what's in a name? i think shakespeare said it best, right? >> set you up for that. >> that for a rose we call by any other name we call it swiet. a name is a trademark and there is real value in that. check this out. elvis presley's name in 2013 was worth $125 million. just his name. in 2009 michael jackson's name was worth $434 million. and in 2015, michael jordan's name worth $480 million. >> what? >> with nike. just for the name. and so we're just talking about kardashian. last name. >> it's the last name. >> i'm worth about 18 bucks.
7:43 am
glad you didn't do mine. sunny, thank you. next up bust out the pom-poms. the international olympic committee announcing it's giving the sport provisional recognition which means we could soon see cheerleading at the olympic gameses and nick watt joins us live from los angeles this morning, and, nick, what is the thinking behind the move, i. ioc thinking about it. >> clearly the ioc is trying to appeal to a younger crowd. we've got surfing, skateboarding, debuting and tokyo in 2020. maybe the dressage, like the horse dancing thing and the archery and modern biathlons don't really appeal to the younger crowd so provisional recognition means that in three years they might get full recognition and then they can apply to be in the olympics. cheerleading could get gold
7:44 am
medals. but there's another sport that's just been given this provisional recognition, muay thai, it's a kind of kick boxing thing so there will be competition, it's not definite, but cheerleading has a shot, guys. cheerleading has a shot >> i'm cheering that decision. i for two years did that i was a gymnast before that. it takes real athleticism to do what these young women do and young men, as well. cheerleading is a nongender sport but is there any blowback, any criticism of this particular decision. you're shaking your head yes. >> reporter: well, straight off the bat i got to tell you the net bull crowd is furious. every small sport wants to get into the olympics. the other criticism, it's a bit american. it was invented here, do any other countries do it? well, in fact, they do. there is a an international cheer union with 100 nations involved. i would still say the usa would be -- i would bet my house if
7:45 am
this makes the olympics the usa will win the gold medal, so that is a good thing but you know what, also, there are sports like golf and tennis in the olympics and the olympics is not the pinnacle for that sport. the olympics would be the pinnacle for cheerleading. would it not? yes! so, therefore, i say go for it. bring it on, get cheerleading in the games. i'm into it. >> yeah. >> we're into it, too, nick, just like those young ladies behind you. we're aall into it. >> no offense to curling but if curling is an olympic sport, so can cheerleading. >> it does require a lot of athleticism. >> only thing we're missing at the desk is pom-poms. thank you, sunny, thank you, nick. coming up in two minutes it's feel good friday, everybody. the two sets of twins, successfully separated. and then we have exclusive new details about president-elect trump's inauguration plans. stay with us. give underwear to this holiday.

8:15 am
becky, you're a runner, i'm a runner. this is really fascinating. >> it is and it all sparks from a runner's world unscientific survey that says 43% of women get some form of harassment when they run compared to 4% of men so we took that idea and road tested it. you're running. it's your time but then -- >> where ya going. >> somebody, almost always a guys whistles or yells. >> where ya going. >> i don't even know what that guy just said to me but i just could tell it was weird and creepy and off. ew. to see what would happen on our own runs we went to four city as cross america. my producer suzanne has a gopro on the back of her hat. we'll run together and i have this microphone that will pick up ambient noise. we'll see what happens. on the east coast runs provoke a lot of comments.

8:18 am
and it just kind of makes you not aware of what people are saying and makes it easier to focus on the exercise. >> i appreciate that we did this story just to let it be known, hey, you know what, just good job, or nothing. >> or nothing. >> i think nothing. >> do you report them or do you just want to get out of there. >> the flashing, i did end up reporting one of the guys and waited at the trail head and wrote down his license plate and had him arrested. the rest of the time you got to keep running. >> all right, becky, thank you. fantastic. coming up next we're talking about the revolutionary model trending everywhere for these photos and she is joining us live. stay with us.
