7:00 am
good morning, america. national security showdown. hillary clinton and donald trump going at it overnight. >> we are not putting ground troops into iraq ever again. >> clashing over the military, isis and experience. >> the generals have been reduced to rubble. >> now questions about those classified intelligence briefings. did trump reveal too much? and hillary clinton defends herself over her e-mails. flash floods and funnel clouds, a massive storm hovers over arizona as remnants from hurricane newton fuel flooding from the dakotas to wisconsin. now, the midwest on alert for more rain as the east braces for a heat wave. temperatures that feel like 100 degrees. a stunning shoot-out caught on surveillance camera. a 71-year-old man shot while watering his lawn in chicago. the city facing the deadliest violence in decades.
7:01 am
the desperate search for those two suspects. our friend and colleague elizabeth vargas opens up about her long battle with alcoholism. >> the only thing that will make you feel better is more alcohol. >> the "20/20" anchor reveals what fueled her drinking, her darkest moments and how she took back control of her life. and good morning, america. boy, that interview, elizabeth vargas with diane sawyer, is so raw and so real but also a lot of hope in there. >> we are very proud of her. and this is a disease that affects millions of people. >> she came out and very forthcoming about it and i think it's going to help a lot of people. but first, we begin with the race for the white house. both donald trump and hillary clinton sitting down to answer questions about leadership and the military. their answers and attacks giving a preview to the upcoming debates. clinton's campaign manager robby mook is here. he'll talk to george live in
7:02 am
just a moment but first, abc's cecilia vega is on the campaign trail in charlotte, north carolina, with the latest. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. that first debate is now a little more than two weeks away, and this forum, overnight both sides facing off over what it takes to be commander-in-chief and the one thing that both of these candidates can agree on, neither side is ready for the job. it was the first time they shared a stage and though never on it at the same time, donald trump and hillary clinton went head-to-head on national security. the republican candidate blasting american military leaders. >> i think under the leadership of barack obama and hillary clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. >> reporter: and openly discussing the classified intelligence briefing he has received as a candidate. >> there was one thing that shocked me, what i did learn is that our leadership, barack obama, did not follow what our
7:03 am
experts and our truly when they call it intelligence, it's there for a reason, what our experts said to do. >> reporter: in the nbc forum overnight, clinton making this promise about america's role in the middle east. >> we are not putting ground troops into iraq ever again and we're not putting ground troops into syria. we're going to defeat isis without committing american ground troops. >> reporter: while trump would not reveal his plan. >> if i win, i don't want to broadcast to the enemy exactly what my plan is. >> reporter: what there was no shortage of, attacks. clinton saying her vote for the iraq war was a mistake while slamming trump's shifting position. >> the decision to go to war in iraq was a mistake. now, my opponent was for the war in iraq. he says he wasn't. you can go back and look at the record. >> i was against the war in iraq because i said it was going to totally destabilize the middle east. >> reporter: but that's not what trump said in an interview in 2002 with howard stern. >> are you for invading iraq?
7:04 am
>> yeah, i guess so. i wish the first time it was done correctly. >> reporter: another mistake clinton admitted to, those e-mails. >> it was a mistake to have a personal account. i would certainly not do it again. i make no excuses. >> reporter: while trump defended a controversial tweet about sexual assaults in the military. in 2013 trump writing, "only 238 convictions. what did these geniuses expect when they put men and women together?" asked about it overnight, trump wouldn't back down. >> well, it is -- it is a correct tweet and by the way, since then it's gotten worse. no, not to kick them out. something has to happen. right now, part of the problem is nobody gets prosecuted. >> reporter: and this morning, president obama is weighing in from overseas saying trump is not ready for the oval office. >> i don't think the guy's qualified to be president of the united states. and every time he speaks, that
7:05 am
opinion is confirmed. >> reporter: you heard it there. the president is in laos and he is really blasting the republican candidate. he said the republican candidate has, quote, either contradictory or uninformed or outright wacky ideas. george. >> not holding back at all, cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk to hillary clinton's campaign manager robby mook right now. robby, thanks for joining us this morning. were you happy with how the forum went last night? >> absolutely. this was an opportunity for voters to see the difference between these two candidates and what they saw was that hillary clinton both has a real command of the issues but also the experience and the judgment to be our commander-in-chief and what we saw from donald trump was that he is simply unfit for the job. he insults at our generals. he said that men and women were not capable of serving together in our military. he showered praise again on vladimir putin, despite matt lauer walking through all of the -- all of the regrettable things that he's done. so i think voters really saw
7:06 am
that difference and they saw that only one candidate was prepared to be commander-in-chief and that's hillary clinton. >> here's what reince priebus the chair of the rnc saw. he said, hillary clinton, was angry, defensive, no smile, uncomfortable. upset that she was caught sending our secrets. >> george, this is what is so incredible and challenging for the republicans, the fact that the only criticism they could have for hillary clinton is that she didn't smile enough at a very serious forum on our veterans, on our national security and on the job of commander-in-chief. just tells you everything you need to know. donald trump simply didn't come prepared and he's not going to be prepared to serve as president and that was abundantly clear last night. >> hillary clinton lost the coin toss last night so she went first and donald trump went second. let me give you a chance to respond to a couple of things. he said that the intelligence briefings he's gotten so far showed barack obama did not
7:07 am
follow what his experts told him to do and he could tell from the body language they were not happy. your response? >> well, first of all, it's concerning that donald trump was, you know, was potentially sharing information that he learned in his briefing. i mean, but what was really scary, george, was he keeps talking about the secret plan that he has to defeat isis. what was clear last night was, there's really no plan at all, and that's what's scary is, first of all, he doesn't seem to have the judgment or temperament to make good decisions as commander-in-chief but he doesn't have any plans and he certainly didn't have command of the issues or the questions that he was being asked. >> hillary clinton said last night she would never again put ground troops in iraq but there are ground troops in iraq. >> well, i think what she was referring to there specifically was the volume of troops that had been there before. but, again, hillary clinton is actually released a plan, a detailed plan on how to defeat isis. donald trump has said he has one, he's keeping it secret.
7:08 am
but, again, last night it was clear there just isn't a plan and he's trying to hide from that and he lashed out at our nation's generals when he was asked for details. so, again, there's no plan there. and donald trump has shown us yet again he is unfit to serve. >> robby mook, thanks for joining us today. >> thanks so much. all right, george, let's bring in jon karl on this discussion about the forum last night. it's evident how the president, what he feels about what he saw last night. >> yeah. >> did we learn anything new about the candidates, where they stand on certain positions. >> well, look, the first thing is this was a rough night for hillary clinton, robin. i mean, 13 minutes of questioning was on her e-mails. and despite what robby mook said there, you could tell she was irritated by this. she was legalistic, she was defensive. donald trump got off relatively easily, he seemed confident. he seemed at ease, but he was let off relatively easy, although i think he will have
7:09 am
things to pay for because of this debate. he praised putin again in pretty glowing terms and, you know, he went on to attack the generals, the senior officers in the military. >> not only did he do that, how unprecedented is it for a candidate to share classified information from an intelligence briefing? >> that was bizarre. >> did he reveal too much? >> look, i've been covering presidential elections for a long time. i've never seen a presidential candidate talk about one of those briefings. he didn't reveal any classified information but implied that they were on his side. it was strange. >> that's the thing. these intelligence briefings are done by intelligence professional, not political people at all, not policy people at all. they don't weigh in on policy. that's why it was sort of surprising to hear him characterize what they were saying in that way. >> yeah, they can't defend themselves, so he implies they were basically on his side and they can't speak about this at all. >> big difference here from a debate. they did go back-to-back. each -- it will be more interesting to see, i guess it's coming up on september 26th, which issues each of them chooses to pick up on.
7:10 am
when the opponent goes and whether they decide to jump in. >> well, i think that what it showed is both of them have a lot of prepwork to do before the next debate. i mean, hillary clinton needs to be able to handle these tough -- she still doesn't have a good answer on her e-mails and donald trump will not get off so easily in the next debris. because hillary clinton will be able to jump in. >> do you think with hillary clinton because she hasn't had any press conferences or that time -- >> huge. huge. for two reason, robin, first of all, it's less practice, less back and forth. she went 270 days without a press conference. not a lot of tough interviews. if she had been doing that the questions would have already been asked, matt lauer would have maybe felt less of a need to hammer over and over again on e-mails and she would be more at ease with the questions. >> jon karl, thank you. >> lesson, do more press conferences. >> yes. >> of course, that's going to be your lesson. >> practice, practice, practice. that's what they need to do. now to that flooding in the midwest. we'll turn it over to ginger who
7:11 am
is going to tell us what's left of the former tropical storm newton and it's messing up the south and ginger is here with that this morning. >> this morning, we are learning that tucson had almost a month's worth of rain in just one day as the remnants of what was newton passed over. so, it didn't make history as that tropical storm but some places got up to a half foot and the moisture fueling that ongoing flash flooding. that's from milwaukee, wisconsin, a lot of people picking up anywhere from 3, 4, 5 inches quickly and this morning you can see it on the satellite image as that pools up. chicago back to kansas city really raucous morning. that moisture is going to pool and, again, that's why we see flood watches just south of davenport, just east of wichita. the next story is right here. if -- in the northeast, new york city, philadelphia, dover, we're all in a heat advisory. it'll feel close to 100. look at some of those heat indices this afternoon, george, 106 in dover. >> that is hot. okay, ginger, thanks.
7:12 am
we're going to turn now to a shooting sparking outrage in chicago where surveillance video shows a gunman attacking a 71-year-old man there watering his lawn. abc's alex perez is in chicago with the latest. this comes after chicago's deadliest month in decades. >> reporter: that's right, george. good morning to you. authorities have working, trying to solve all these cases. what we're learning from investigators on this case, the 71-year-old was minding his own business when suddenly he was fighting for his life. this morning, chicago police on the hunt for the brazen suspects that took down this senior citizen and then shot him. the entire ordeal captured on tape by a neighbor's surveillance camera. watch as 71-year-old frederico laguardia was out watering his front lawn tuesday when two men ride past him on bicycles and moments later one of those men returns, wrestling him to the ground, shooting him in the abdomen, then rifling through his pockets and stealing his wallet. >> this is absolutely ridiculous. you're not even safe in your own
7:13 am
yard. >> reporter: injured laguardia then gets himself to a neighbor's front door and calls for help. the unbelievable video another sign of the record-breaking violence plaguing some parts of chicago. in 2016, nearly 3,000 shootings so far, more than 500 murders. more than new york and los angeles combined. >> it's not a police issue. it's a society issue. you know, impoverished neighborhoods, people without hope do these kind of things. you show me a man who doesn't have hope and i'll show one who's willing to pick up a gun and ready to do anything with it. >> reporter: they're hoping this video leads to an arrest. >> if you can identify your child on there, do the right thing before you get the knock on the door. >> reporter: no arrests. good news here is laguardia is doing better and his wife says he's in fair condition. >> alex, thank you very much. george, you spent time with nba star dwyane wade.
7:14 am
his cousin was gunned down recently. >> taking her kids to school. >> right there on the street. and he says, he's going to do what he needs to do and others need to do to take back their community. >> he is going back home and he says it reminds him of what it was like growing up back in the '90s when there was a lot of violence of as well. the most important thing needs, -- he thinks they need to have mentors. there are gang wars going on. they have to find a way to get a handle on it. >> for the young men and women. they need those mentors. >> they need hope. amy is here with the rest of today's top headlines, starting with a highway shooting in arizona. yeah, this is a tough story. breaking news overnight, a woman has died after being shot while just driving down the highway in phoenix. police say she called 911 to say she was being chased by a truck, dispatchers then heard three shots, no arrests have been made yet. police say there is no apparent link to a serial shooter in that area blamed for seven recent killings. and some disturbing video from southern california. a police officer was seen using his baton to repeatedly hit a suspect on the ground.
7:15 am
police say moments earlier that suspect tried to grab the officer's gun inside a store in marietta and an investigation is under way. an dsurveillance video showing the moment a murder suspect in las vegas twisted and broke through his handcuffs after being left alone in a police interrogation room just last week, he then climbed through the ceiling to escape. it took police 25 minutes to realize he was gone and he was finally captured on tuesday. well, an asteroid the size of a school bus passed by earth. the space rock buzzed the planet wednesday at 18,000 miles an hour and scientists discovered it only two days earlier. this comes as nasa launches a rocket today sending a robot to another asteroid to collect dust in hopes of finding clues to the origins of life. and soccer star megan rapinoe did not get a chance to protest the national anthem at last night's game. the owner of the washington spirit changed the pregame ceremonies and played the anthem
7:16 am
while the players were still in their locker rooms. rapinoe took a knee during a recent game to join nfl quarterback colin kaepernick's protest for minority rights. and it was a messy morning commute around wilmington, delaware, after this truck overturned spilling thousands of pennies onto interstate 95. the truck was headed to the u.s. mint in philadelphia when it overturned. and finally, trying to sell an office building shaped like a giant picnic basket apparently is no picnic. take a look. yep, that's an actual building. these are the headquarters of surprisingly a basket company in ohio. it cost $32 million to build this back in the '90s but the company is so desperate to sell it they've lowered the sale price to just $5 million but still no takers and it's been on the market for over a year. maybe if they took the handles off. >> that might help. i'm thinking the same thing. >> maybe. >> the land's got to be worth 5 million. >> maybe a little bit longer. all right, guys. now to the latest on ryan lochte and reports this morning
7:17 am
that the embattled olympian will be suspended for ten months following what happened in rio. abc's ryan smith joins us now with the latest. good morning, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the suspension means the 32-year-old swimmer is out for next year's world championships the other three teammates are also facing bans of several months, as well. but officials from the usoc, united states olympic committee, and usa swimming, have yet to publicly comment but an announcement is believed to be coming later this afternoon. the 12-time medalist apologizing for exaggerating a story that he was robbed at gunpoint creating an international incident. now, if lochte wants to continue competing on the international stage, his next eligible world championship, 2019 when he is 35 years old. that's going to be a tough one to do, robin. >> we'll have to wait to see if that happens. ryan, thank you very much. everyone kind of suspected something like this -- >> had to happen. ginger, what's going on in arizona? >> we just talked about that
7:18 am
flooding rain, and then you see the funnel cloud that happened in parts of arizona, near flagstaff, of course, so that circulating energy in the atmosphere now has moved of course and strong storms and a new low coming at you in the dakotas. it will slide by and anyone from des moines back through kansas city, even wichita along i-35 will look out for damaging wind. this is for tomorrow so a heads-up right now, hail and even an isolated tornado.

"20/20" anchor elizabeth vargas sat down with diane sawyer to talk about her long battle with alcoholism. her story is now a memoir.
7:32 am
"between breaths" and in it she reveals some of her darkest moments and her road back to joy. >> good evening, we're taking you on -- >> reporter: on television she's the picture of calm. >> i'm elizabeth vargas in baghdad. >> reporter: traveling the world as an anchor and reporter. >> return here to jerusalem. >> reporter: a familiar face in the morning. >> and today we're looking at jeans. >> reporter: but for some of those years elizabeth vargas was living a secret double life as an alcoholic. >> thanks, elizabeth, very much. >> there are days when you wake up and you feel so horrible that the only thing that will make you feel better is more alcohol. and that's when you're in the death spin, you know. that's when you're -- that's when people die. that's when people die. >> how close did you come to dying? >> i on one occasion had a lethal level of alcohol in my blood system and even that didn't scare me in stopping.
7:33 am
can you believe it? even that. >> reporter: haunted by crushing insecurity and anxiety that began as a child vargas said a glass or two of wine helped smooth frayed nerves, over the years, social drinking fueled by that anxiety became a dangerous addiction, a startling statistic, more than 60% of women who have a problem with alcohol also struggle with anxiety. >> good evening, we begin tonight with two rest -- >> reporter: to watch elizabeth anchor live tv you'd have no idea she was forcing herself to suppress deep anxiety. >> i mean i remember anchoring the evening news and every single night when michelle, and i love michelle, the floor manager, when she would count down, i hated it. >> two minutes. >> two minutes. >> and, you know, my heart would start pounding. >> one minute. >> now i'm like hyperventilating. >> 30 seconds. >> 30 seconds. and literally the studio, the edges of my vision would start to swim a little.
7:34 am

7:35 am
>> reporter: and as the mother of two young boys, a punishing reality. >> i was drinking and sleeping, and i do vividly remember like one afternoon sam standing by that -- my head in the bed saying, mommy, when are you going to get up? and i remember i could smell the sunscreen and i could feel the heat from his little body because he just had come in from the beach and i would die for my children, diane. i wouldn't give a nanosecond's worth of thought to die for my children, to kill for my children but i would die for my children but i couldn't stop drinking for my children. i don't know if i will ever forgive myself for hurting them with my drinking ever. >> so vulnerable, so honest, so brave, and, of course, it is her children that help her continue that fight against this disease
7:36 am
each and every day. guys. >> so raw, all right, amy. thank you. and dr. richard besser is here and going to talk more about this. because we don't often talk about alcohol abuse and women and it seems that it is -- there's signs it's a growing problem. >> yeah, i mean it's so important that elizabeth is sharing her story. it helps deal with the stigma and it's hard to get good numbers. one thing we know more common in men but arrests for driving under the influence for men is going down and for women going up. >> she said she never drove when she drank but heavy drinking is actually more dangerous for women. >> yes, it is. it's riskier. when you compare women to men, women are more likely to have liver disease, heart disease, brain disease and it increases the risk for breast cancer and it puts them at risk of being victims of sexual abuse. >> and she also writes in the book that it took her -- multiple trips to rehab over a period of months before she was able to quit drinking for good.
7:37 am
but how common is it for people to struggle with relapses? >> that's the story you keep hearing. it's a disease and each time you have to struggle and finally admit you have a problem, then you can start to ask for help and you go through that cycle every time. >> it's so good she was honest about that and multiple times for her to do that and for people to know that and to know that it is a disease. okay, so, rich, you know there are some people that are women especially watching this morning and saying, okay, do i have a problem? are there questions we can ask ourselves? >> yeah, so, there are four simple questions and if you answer yes to these, it doesn't necessarily mean you have a drinking problem, it may miss some people but it means you should ask for some help. so, first one, have you ever felt that you should cut down on your drinking? second, have people annoyed you by criticizing the amount that you're drinking? have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking and have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady the nerves or to fight a hangover? if you answered yes to any of those questions, it's a good sign that you should ask for some help. >> all right, rich, thank you. those are good questions we should ask ourselves and elizabeth will share much more of her story in a diane sawyer special edition of "20/20"
7:38 am

7:44 am
if you are a boss, there is i think two options, offer better training, coaching, if that doesn't work termination should be a very viable option that's on the table. many people think results at any cost and bosses should know that cost is very real. if you are an employee and you are dealing with somebody who is a bully, a gossip, they just lack civility, set boundaries, refuse to engage and speak up to that person and let them know what is specifically offensive and of course speak support from compassionate colleagues, from higher-ups, from hr and let them know about the specific incidents and the impact and ask for help. >> okay, tory, thanks very much. let's bring in patrick mcenroe and talk about the u.s. open and growing controversy, happened in a first round of the women's match. russia versus switzerland. there was an unusual betting

7:46 am
>> another big story coming out of the u.s. open, serena williams chasing history, won her quarterfinals match last night, the first time she lost a set. is she feeling the strain? there's a lot of pressure on her to win this tournament. >> there's even more pressure, i think, last year when she was chasing the calendar grand slam. of course, there's always pressure on serena, as she says every time i go out there i'm the favorite, but her opponent simona halep played a great match and serena raised her match. best on the women's tournament. locked in, number 23 is coming. >> the set she lost they went back and forth. i was watching that. i had to go to bed because they were making me anxious. patrick, tory, becky, thank you. coming up in two minutes -- the new guy trying to fill the shoes of the most interesting man in the world and spoiler alert, i'm so upset it's not george. >> not even close. >> not even close. not george. >> not even close.
