7:00 am
good morning, america. breaking news, a massive blow overnight to the republican plan to repeal the affordable care act. senator john mccain casting the deciding vote to kill the new bill, as he crosses party lines. >> so now, mr. president, it's time to move on. >> the president fired up over the results, saying, let obamacare implode. open warfare in the white house. president trump presides over a west wing in chaos. his new communications director launches a profanity-laced tirade against the chief of staff. trump's inner circle now in turmoil. new details about that state fair tragedy. inspectors checking the ride just hours before this fatal accident. the investigation right now as rides like this shut down across the country.
7:01 am
now the 18-year-old victim's family speaking out, desperate for answers. and an abc news exclusive. the amazing mother of three who survived an encounter with a great white shark that left these teeth marks now telling her story for the first time. >> i felt it grab me and pulled me down. >> how she fought off the shark, poking its eye and fighting back for her life. and we do say good morning, america. a very busy friday morning and a late night in washington. the senate voting down the latest republican health care bill. >> and the senators were prepared for a long night last night. take a look. they rolled in mattresses. they weren't the only ones who were up late. the protesters were also up late outside of the capitol and that was the moment they found out the bill did not pass. >> what a huge effort this was. seven years the republicans tried to repeal obamacare.
7:02 am
they've been fighting it out for the last seven months. this was the last-ditch effort and called it skinny repeal. the deciding vote, senator john mccain, look at him right there, 21 minutes on the floor of the senate after 1:00 a.m. talking to vice president mike pence, pence could not prevail. mccain voted no after giving that emotional speech, remember earlier this week when he returned to the senate with brain cancer he admonished both parties in the senate to work together. now, there is a big question on the table. will they work together now? >> what is going to happen now? congressional correspondent mary bruce is following all the latest and joins us from capitol hill. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this was a massive blow to republicans, the president and their defining pledge to the american people. in the very early morning hours here, their latest push no overhaul obamacare came crashing down. >> the amendment is not agreed to. >> reporter: it is a devastating defeat for republicans' signature promise. overnight their latest effort to rewrite obamacare collapsing by just one vote. >> mr. mccain. >> reporter: the final blow delivered by senator john mccain.
7:03 am
on the floor, the vice president spotted huddling with the war hero once attacked by president trump on the campaign trail. seemingly trying to convince him. but it wasn't enough. at 1:30 in the morning mccain cast his decisive vote with a thumb's down. on the senate floor, gasps and applause. in a statement mccain defended the move saying the bill offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens. outside the capitol protesters cheered the bill's defeat. after seven years of promises and months of planning, it is an embarrassing blow for republican leader mitch mcconnell. >> we worked really hard. i think the american people are going to regret that we couldn't find a better way forward. >> reporter: the so-called skinny repeal bill would have eliminated just some parts of
7:04 am
obamacare, like the mandate that all americans have insurance. but that could have left 16 million more americans uninsured and cause premiums for some to jump by 20%. even some republicans who supported the bill didn't want it to become law. they argued it was just a place holder to buy more time to negotiate. this morning, democrats say it's time to move on. >> we are not celebrating. we are relieved that millions and millions of people who would have been so drastically hurt will at least retain their health care. >> reporter: leader chuck schumer emotional recalling mccain's dramatic return to the senate tuesday after being diagnosed with brain cancer. backing mccain's call for the parties to now work together. >> all of us were so inspired by the speech and the life of the senator from arizona. >> reporter: president trump
7:05 am
responded to the defeat overnight again calling to let obamacare implode and then make a deal. so what comes next? well, the senate today here is moving on to other business. leader mcconnell seems to be throwing in the towel on health care at least for now. if republicans want to tackle it they'll have to work with democrats and until the two parties can come together and find a new solution, obamacare will remain the law of the land. george. >> we will see if that can happen. ma mary, thanks very much. this defeat comes as he's dealing with open warfare inside his white house. take a look at this image. white house chief of staff reince priebus and the new communications director, anthony scaramucci there in the oval office staring each other down. it sure looks like only one can survive the showdown and "the new york post" captures it, on its front page this morning, "survivor," the reality show and jon karl tracking all the latest on this fast-moving story. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. it does look like all-out war in the west wing and for now at least the president isn't doing
7:06 am
anything to stop it. the president offered his embattled chief of staff a quick acknowledgement in the east room of the white house but he isn't coming to his defense as newly minted communications director anthony scaramucci unleashes a scathing personal attack. scaramucci in a shockingly blunt interview with "the new yorker" called priebus a bleeping paranoid schizophrenic. the interview was done by "the new yorker's" ryan lizza. >> the white house was deeply factionalized. it was like putting scaramucci in that job was throwing a grenade into an ongoing civil war in the white house. >> reporter: in that interview, scaramucci directed a crude insult at white house chief strategist steve bannon and threatened to fire essentially the entire white house communications staff over leaks to the press, saying, they'll all be fired by me. i fired one guy the other day. i have three to four people i'll fire tomorrow. he also hinted he has information on white house aides
7:07 am
telling "the new yorker" i nailed these guys. i've got digital fingerprints on everything they've done through the fbi and the bleeping department of justice. they're going to get prosecuted. scaramucci even suggested it was priebus doing the leaking in a late night tweet wednesday that he later deleted. insisting he wasn't blaming the chief of staff but when pressed by reporters, he issued a challenge to priebus on live television. >> they're all making the assumption it's him because journalists know who the leakers are so if reince wants to explain he's not a leaker, let him do that. >> reporter: after the explosive interview was published the new communications director tweeted a statement saying, i sometimes use colorful language. i will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for donald trump's agenda. according to the new white house press secretary, the president doesn't mind the in-fighting among his top aides. >> i think the president as always enjoys healthy
7:08 am
competition and conversation and he sees that as such. >> reporter: does the president have confidence in his chief of staff? >> if the president doesn't then he'll make that decision. we all serve at the pleasure of the president and if he gets to a place where that isn't the case he'll let you know. >> reporter: all this comes after the public humiliation of another senior official, attorney general jeff sessions, who is now speaking out in an interview on fox news after a week of criticism from the president himself, saying, quote, it's kind of hurtful, but, george, sessions added in that interview that he stands by his decision to recuse himself from the russia investigation, that was the decision that has the president so upset with him. >> yeah, not backing down on that at all. jon, stand by. i want mary bruce to stand by as we bring in john avalon from the "daily beast." you mentioned, jon, jeff sessions still out there. big criticism from the president all week long. you also heard the president
7:09 am
getting criticized after announcing that transgender ban by his joint chiefs of staff saying they're not going to implement that bill until they get more direct guidance from the president, of course the senate and the house passing russian sanctions to the president over some objections that he's had previously. now that's on his desk as well and john, you broaden out this week and look at the last seven months heading into the august recess and running out of adjectives to describe what's going on here. we've never seen anything like it before. >> we haven't. this is a level of chaos that we have just not seen in any modern white house and can't imagine being in the past. there's been no significant legislative achievements. last night's high drama moment with john mccain was decisive for the republicans' core campaign promise to repeal obamacare because they never could agree on what they would replace it with. but these internal feuds, internal wounds festering and exploding into the public shows that tone comes from the top and president trump has failed to unite his white house let alone the nation. >> jon karl, on that point right there, as i said at the
7:10 am
beginni beginning, it's hard to see how anthony scaramucci and reince priebus survive after this open warfare playing out on the front pages of papers all across the country. >> reporter: yeah, i talked to a senior adviser to this president, both inside and outside the white house since this all broke. some of those advisers to the president say that really reince priebus needs to say fire scaramucci or i'm gone but i've also talked to officials who believe that they could both stay. one actually invoking "the lord of the flies" here to describe what's going on in the west wing. >> that's not the only tension, the president has tensions with his national security adviser over afghanistan, with general mattis, the head of the pentagon over this transgender ban and with his own secretary of state. >> reporter: yeah, secretary of state tillerson actually had to come out and deny reports that he was on the verge of resigning. tensions with most of the senior people advising this president, the one exception, the real bright exception to that is john kelly over at the homeland security department and, george, i am told he is high on the list
7:11 am
of possible replacements for reince priebus as chief of staff. >> meantime, mary bruce on capitol hill, one of the other things we saw, not only that decisive vote by john mccain to stop the obamacare repeal effort but the republicans becoming more outspoken this week in their criticism of president trump. >> reporter: yeah, george, especially when it comes to jeff sessions. republicans up here are taking sides. many top republicans, in fact, drawing a red line. senator lindsey graham came out swinging yesterday saying that if trump does fire sessions, there would be holy hell to pay. he said if he goes even further and tries to meddle in the investigation with bob mueller, he says that would be the beginning of the end of the trump presidency. even if the president does move to fire sessions or if sessions steps down, you have republicans up here saying that they simply don't have enough bandwidth to give the president a new attorney general. chairman grassley saying no way they would have a new attorney general any time soon. >> john avlon, that investigation still at the heart of president trump's anger. >> absolutely.
7:12 am
and it is the highest stakes investigation we've seen. every step of the way president trump gives every indication of trying to shut it down one way or another but what the senate is saying if you fire jeff sessions we won't confirm a replacement. that is a strong signal that they recognize that mueller's investigation cannot be derailed and these are as high stakes poker as you get right now. >> no question about that. thank you all very much. much more sunday on "this week." robin. >> let me ask you this. many people feel this chaos at the white house, it's kind of like, look over here, look over here so you don't look here at the major issues facing the american people. >> i don't think it's distraction, i don't think it's strategy. i think it's impulsion. i think it's personality of the president. i think he tolerates this to some degree, one thing we're seeing play out. the question is how long can a white house go on with open warfare like this. >> i know you'll talk about it sunday on "this week." thank you very much. also there are flash flood warnings all the way from
7:13 am
alabama to new jersey. a major storm is moving in for the weekend and ginger, of course, is tracking it all. good morning, ginger. >> robin, this morning i'm concerned that scenes like this could be seen in the mid-atlantic later today. so this is actually kansas city, missouri, the indian creek rose 17 feet in just five hours, water rescues performed. four to eight inches of rain. then we've got pictures coming from oklahoma of up to nearly 90-mile-per-hour wind, thousands without power there. the low pressure system that is going to sit over and bring us lots of potential for flash flooding, washington, d.c., delaware, that's also going to go into the ocean creating waves up to ten feet. there are advisories. if you have plans at the beach italy stick up to seaside heights, martha's vineyard, you'll want to pay attention to this. rainfall totals in a couple of moments. michael. now new details about that tragic accident at the ohio state fair. the victim's family speaking out as concerns grow override safety this morning. abc's alex perez is on the scene in columbus, ohio, with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael.
7:14 am
investigators are going through every inch of the accident site searching for any clues that might help them figure out what went wrong here. >> the fireball at the ride at the ohio state fair broke and people went flying. >> reporter: this morning new details about the ride behind that fatal amusement park accident. >> it busted and people went flying. >> reporter: documents obtained by abc news showed the fireball passed state inspection by four different inspectors just hours before the deadly accident killed one and injured seven riders. the documents from the ohio department of agriculture say the ride, which earlier this month was used without incident at a state fair in new jersey passed more than 35 inspection criteria on wednesday checking off items like no visible unsecured items and motors, clutches and controls functioning. but this morning, questions about what exactly went wrong. >> i saw their face before death like they knew they were hitting the ground. they knew they were about to die. >> reporter: the ride's

7:16 am
if it was supposed to be safe and everything was supposed to be inspected by everyone before the tragedy happened, then it should have never happened to begin with. >> reporter: and authorities say it could be days or weeks before the investigation here is complete. as for the other rides, officials say they will remain shut down until they can all be reinspected. michael. >> all right, thank you very much, alex, for that. amy, the morning's other top headlines. >> that's right, good morning, everyone. we begin with more than 50 people who were injured when a commuter train crashed into a barrier while entering a station in barcelona, spain. one passenger reported hearing a loud noise as the train was breaking, most of the other injuries thankfully were minor. there are new diplomatic tensions between the united states and russia. the russian government has seized two u.s. diplomatic compounds and ordered the embassy in moscow to reduce its staff. that order is in retaliation for new economic sanctions approved by congress. president trump has not yet signed off on those sanctions. about 10,000 tourists in

that health care defeat overnight for the republican party. their effort went down after seven years of trying and until senator mccain was the deciding vote. they called it skinny repeal. it still would have cut 16 million off health care and our congressional correspondent mary bruce is on capitol hill with the latest. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george. well, overnight republicans' seven-year quest to overhaul obamacare came crashing down. this was a devastating defeat for republicans and for the president. the final blow was delivered by senator john mccain and this came down to the wire. the vice president was spotted on the floor huddling with mccain presumably trying to get him on board but it was not enough, mccain cast his no vote and gave a thumb's down. what was on the table was being called a skinny repeal, a bill that would have rolled back just parts of obamacare so the question now, where does this all go from here? republicans seem to have pretty much exhausted all of their legislative options so now if they want to tackle this issue they're going to have to work with democrats to find a solution together. robin. >> all right, mary, the other big story in our morning rundown, the war in the west wing. president trump's new

anxious state where the only fix is the phone. >> so if you're constantly connected, you're going to feel anxiety and the more people feel anxiety that can lead to other things like mental health and physical ailments. >> reporter: so how much phone anxiety are we experiencing? cheever runs an experiment that measures sweat and heart rate increases, essentially anxiety, when your phone rings or pings. to see it in action we enlist two teenagers and me. >> it's going to be fun, right? >> reporter: there's a catch. to try to throw us off researchers don't tell us what's really going on. instead we're asked to watch a video as part of an experiment on test anxiety. they put electrodes on my fingers and what happens next -- >> i'll put your phones back here because they might interfere with the equipment. >> reporter: -- is the key. why? with the phones out of reach cheever's team is able to track changes in our heart rate and measure perspiration as she calls our phones and sends us text messages that we're not able to look at.
8:24 am
>> about 4 billion -- >> physiological arousal spikes quite a bit right after he hears the text come in. >> reporter: cheever says most people have an emotional response that floods our body with stress hormones when we hear our phones. the question is, how much does it affect us? you can see immediately he started sweating quite a bit. he's anxious about his phone. >> reporter: during the five types she texts and two times she calls i start to sweat. what does that tell you about me from what you just observed? >> it tells me that when you hear a notification, you become anxious. yeah. >> you're the one that took my phone from me. if you let it sit there -- >> reporter: now for the teens. first up kiki. >> i'll go ahead and text her. >> reporter: -- whose biggest response is four times higher than mine. >> she's really reacting. >> yeah. and it keeps going up here. >> my goodness. >> reporter: then gabby has the highest stress response of all of us.
8:25 am
psychotherapist nancy colier author of "the power of off." >> how much damage is being done to a child who is putting themselves through that level of anxiety? >> let's meet in 30 years and we'll know the answer to that. >> you think we're in trouble down the road. >> i do. >> now that you have seen the results what do you think now? >> i should probably turn it off for sometimes during the day? >> reporter: i'm not convinced it will be that easy. >> you sound like you can't function without your phone. >> the way we're living doesn't actually serve our deeper well-being. all of this attention to technology and the mind and thoughts is coming at a great expense to what human beings need to feel well. >> okay, so there could be some consequences down the road that generation we have now are the guinea pigs. we've never gone through this before. we could see maybe higher levels of depression and loneliness because we're so caught up in this device they might be missing the world around them. >> as an adult you need to realize your kids learn from you
8:26 am
too and i had to learn to personally turn my phone off at night. try not to pay attention to it when you're with your family and kind of have downtime. >> just like everything else we are setting the example for them. if they see us and there's so much importance in this versus cooking dinner or having a conversation with them they'll pick up on that behavior. we asked our audience can you go without your phone for five minutes? hopefully so, right, but 85% did respond and say, yes, they could go 85%. >> 85% said yes. >> five minutes. >> can you go without your phone for five minutes? >> yes. >> okay, give it to me. i'll give it back to you five minutes from now. do a little test here but everybody, coming up, kevin hart and imagine dragons, they are live here in central park and the people are excited. ♪ central park and the people are excited. ♪

good morning. i'm jessica castro from "abc7 mornings." and making news headlines this morning, a suspect is in custody after a standoff in san jose. the fire department first responded to reports of a building on fire in welch park. and as you see here, when they arrived around 11:30 last night, they found the man accused of setting the fire on the roof. smoke was rising from the building. the suspect demanded to speak with his kids before turning himself in. luckily, no one was hurt. now let's check our traffic. hi, alexis! >> hey, good morning. i want to take you into lafayette on our traffic maps. we do still have this crash on westbound 24 before happy valley. that's blocking one lane and that has spilled over on to 680 through walnut creek. so, hopefully, that will clear soon. just minor injuries with that one. and we have the metering lights on still for the bay bridge toll plaza, but overall, lighter than
8:28 am
average. jessica? >> alexis, thank you.
8:29 am
hey, there. thanks for sticking around. we'll start with your current conditions where we're starting to see more sunshine, temperatures in the 50s to 70s already. here's my accuweather seven-day forecast. we're going to be in the 60s along the coast in san francisco, upper 70s and mid-80s around the bay. you'll see 90s inland, jessica. >> mike, thank you. we'll have another update in 30 minutes and always on our news
8:30 am
app and abc7news.com. join reggie, natasha, mike, alexis ♪lexis welcome back to "gma," everybody. and we are so happy to be here in central park with everybody. thank you, guys, for joining us in the park. >> wonderful crowd and have one of our favorite guests joining us. he's one of the funniest men on the planet. it is kevin hart. give it up for mr. hart. >> yes, yes, yes, thank you. >> i want to go on record. in the commercial break, you two were talking hair. i wasn't talking hair. you two -- >> we were talking -- i was telling him i'm letting my grays pop right now. i'm not going to dye my hair. i don't want anybody judging me. i want to see how bad it get so right now i look like a skunk. it's just one stripe. >> you actually said i want to see what happens. kevin, i can tell you what is going to happen. >> i don't know if it's going to be a full head of gray.
8:31 am
i just want to see what happens. i'm not afraid. i'll let fate do what fate does. >> all right. >> yes, that's what i'm going to do. >> i thought it was refreshing the two men were talking about hair. >> i got one in my beard. >> no, you got more than one, man. >> i'm not going to do this. if you're going to judge me, we're not going to do this. >> you've got it going on and first of all, congratulations, baby number three. are you ready? are you ready? >> on the way, baby number three. >> before you said you were ready. >> you know what, i wasn't at first but, you know, after -- as me and my wife had some conversations and i really looked around and i said, you know what, this last name needs to live on, you know, my son is a hart and now having another son to carry that last name on, you know, is a big deal. i definitely didn't want another girl so the fact -- >> what? >> yeah, i don't want another girl. >> what? >> my daughter is too much. she got me wrapped her around my hand. i don't want another boss. >> i want to share a text she
8:32 am
sent. the mrs. is a boss. >> one-year anniversary. married for one year now. time flies. >> congratulations. >> yeah. literally like i don't even know where the time went and i got to do something special. i don't know what i'm going to do yet but she's pregnant and i know she expecting something big. i don't know what i'm going to do. >> you kind of set the bar high because, you know, i saw you on instagram. you set the bar up. you got to step up. >> i'm a romantic guy, you know. i'm a prince charming is what i am. if you really look me in my eyes, you'll get lost. >> okay with that being said i'll look forward to asking you the next question. what you do set for your kids and everybody that follows you set a healthy example. you are a workout warrior. i've seen you work out with your kids. how important is that to you? >> for me it's everything. i think health and wellness have definitely changed my life, you know. i put a heavy demand on myself and in order for my body to respond i got to take care of it so the reason why i'm such a health nut is because i want to
8:33 am
give myself the best chance to win and this one life that i have i'm trying to live it to the fullest. i can't expect myself to do things at the highest level if i'm not giving myself the chances that i deserve so that's where health and wellness comes in from eating good to fitness to working out. it's a priority. >> it allows you to keep the schedule you keep. you and your buddy the rock are the hardest -- >> it's not me and my buddy the rock. it's me. it's just me. he's nowhere near where i am. he's not even close to where i am. no, he's definitely a hard worker but you know what, what i love about him, we motivate each other. that guy literally gives it 100% every day and he's the same. he's a health nut as well but we want it all and i think when you have that attitude of i want it all, i want to do it all, i want to be around to literally get the rewards and benefits from working as hard as i work. that's why i have to take care of myself, man, i don't want to
8:34 am
not give my kids a father or heighten the chances of me not being around but make sure my kids enjoy what i'm enjoying. >> you're here for the rally health fest and you're a spokesperson. >> i'm an ambassador. >> you're an ambassador. >> and all the things you do what piece of advice can you give? >> you know what people try to do that i found out, man, everybody wants to do it all in one day. everybody wants to go to the gym and do everything that one day. everybody wants to do these cleanses and, you know, starve themselves for one day and expect to see a response. i will tell people to take baby steps, man, you know, it's not something that happens overnight. it's a lifestyle that you have to adapt to so my one piece of advice would be give yourself a chance. by me saying give yourself a chance, in other words, give yourself a month. if you say i'll change my diet and eat healthy for a month and you know what, i'll throw some activity within that month, twice a week, three days a week,
8:35 am
you don't have to go seven days or six days, start off small and as you adjust to it you'll see results and you'll fall in love with those results. be in love with seeing yourself become a better version of yourself and i think that's what people don't give themselves a chance to do. >> well said. >> very well said. >> dag gone right it's well said because i'm a well spoken individual, mike. >> you went there. hey, i hear yoga. >> yeah. >> you have adopted to. >> i'm loving yoga right now. i'm switching it up. >> zen. >> not zen. me doing something different. i said i'm going to do it because i'm not flexible. i wasn't flexible at all and i was waking up aching. ah, ah and i couldn't touch my toes and asking my trainer, what else should i do? he said why don't we switch it up and do yoga. we did some hip-hop yoga. music while you hurt pretty much but i like it. i'm into doing different things and i'm into literally challenging myself. >> you have a favorite pose or
8:36 am
anything. >> i don't know the names of all of them. my favorite now is where you put your hands in the air and knees forward and you go back but you -- >> warrior pose. >> i will show you now. >> is that what it's called. thank you, man, for helping me out. don't correct me again. you let me figure it out. you let me get there, okay. but thank you but don't do it again. [ laughter ] yes, the warrior pose, thank you for helping me out. i will show you now but my jeans are way too tight to do it. >> hey. >> these are some 29/29s, mike, i went down a size since working out, these are 29 slims on the bottom. i'm a petite young man, okay. don't judge me. >> you were talking about your daughter earlier. she sent out a tweet or sent you a message in saying, you know, very proud of you and all that you're doing but that she said that you're doing too much. >> oh, yes. >> she said dad, this is not a joke. you need your rest and if your boss says you can't rest let me talk to him then you will get your rest what if this gets
8:37 am
worse i need to learn when to stop. >> she wrote it in all caps. that's on snapchat. my daughter snapchats me as if i'm not her father. call me and say what you got to say. why are you snapchatting, heaven? she'll send messages and snapchat like video messages like, hey, dad, thinking about you. gir, if you don't pick up the phone, i just called you two seconds ago. sorry, dad, snap me. she's at that cool age right now but i'm so in love with the young lady that she's becoming and i love the fact that she not only understands who her dad is and what i do but she sprays it. she doesn't care. i'm just dad and that message came because i had a cold and she was like you're getting sick. your body is shutting down, you need to sit down and i popped her because i said you don't talk to meo like that, okay. i'm dad and she popped me back and she said i'm the daughter. you give whatever you want. i'm going to sit down. >> you set a great example.
