time to talk some sports
4:19 am
highlights. lets begin with a little controversy on the track. it was at the womens 400 meter final. american "allyson felix" hoping to get the gold. but "shaunae miller" of the bahamas managed to beat her... with a dive. the two were neck-and-neck right before the end... but as they got to the finish line miller ?dove foward and beat felix's time by less than a ?tenth of a second. so felix settles for silver. social media not happyit ?cheated. but it's actually legal. runners are measured by when their ?torso crosses the finish line... so miller's mid-section still crossed before felix. observers also noted that if ?felix dived at the finish line too... she probably would have won. and some more disappointment for americans... this time in gymnastics. golden girl "simone biles" competing in the beam final monday, along with teammate laurie hernandez. biles was hoping for her ?fourth gold in
4:20 am
didnt get ?any medal. her left food landed on the edge of the beam... and thats apparently a big no-no. biles still gets a bronze medal, and teammate hernandez gets the silver. sanne wevers of the netherlands takes the gold. biles was on her way to becoming the first gymnast in history to win five golds... in the same olympics. but she already has the u-s record for most medals for an american gymnast. her final event is today... the floor routine. and here's a look at the updated olympic medal count. the u-s has a ?huge lead on the competition. 75 total medals... including 26 golds. china is in second place with 46 medals... and great britain is in third place right now with 41 medals. back here at home: the rays bats ?still on fire... two games in a row. and they got another solid start from pitcher "drew smyly." his fifth ?straight quality start. the rays hosting the padres last night. bottom of the 2nd... logan forsythe....
4:21 am
shot... that puts the rays ahead 3-1. drew smyly gave up an early home run, but that's pretty much it. that was his only hit... and he struck out four in 7 innings pitched. bottom of the 8th... logan morrison... returning from the d-l... rips it down the 1st baseline... a r-b-i double for him... 4-1 rays lead. later that inning... kevin kiermaier... with two on... sends it deep right... a 3-run shot.... part of a 5-run 8th inning.... rays take of the series ... 8-2 the final. when we come back, lindsay will have another check on your tuesday forecast. plus: donald trump is opening a new campaign office in florida. but it's already getting protests. especially from people affected by the pulse nightclub attack. we'll explain why, when good day

opening today in orlando: a new office for the donald trump campaign. and... you can't have a trump story... without some controversy. it's all because of the ?location of that campaign office. fox's "dana jay" shows us why it's not getting much of a warm welcome. this is the site of a tragedy--- it is also a place for people to come togethera&and remember the 49 lives lost in the pulse nightclub shooting. ((cheryl 14:11:45 it's really brought the community closer. 14:11:51)) so in the middle of a divisive presidential campaign-((show trump here)) news that a controversial candidate will open an office just steps away.. is unwelcome ((cheryl bellardini/orlando 14:10:02 probably not the best place for him to be. 14:10:05 it's just kind of disturbing actually))((john krieg/orlando 13:44:48 i don't know what to say. he gets people incited just by himself, without having to open something across the way. )) randy ross is the campaign's chairperson in orange county. he says the office was never meant to distract from what happened at the nightclub. ((randy ross/trump campaign 12:56:00 that would never have been our intention because we recognized that that act of radical islamic terrorism that took place there is a big issue for our community. 12:56:07)) pulse was a gay club.many of the people who are memorialized here are hispanic. even though the campaign struggles with those demographics-ross said the location of the office had nothing to do with reaching out to those groups.and it's not meant as an insult either. ((randy ross/trump campaign chairman 12:56:12 i'm an openly gay man. i'm chairing this campaign. there was no strategy in that. as a matter of fact it probably would have been better-based on some
