washington for gun control. the president feeling the pressure. and our chief white house correspondent jon karl has the latest joining us from washington. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the president had praised law enforcement for its response to the parkland shooting. but over the weekend, he unleashed a stunning new allegation, suggesting that the fbi failed to stop the shooter because it was too busy with the russia investigation. just days after he visited victims of the shooting, the president tweeted over the weekend -- very sad that the fbi missed all of the many signals sent out by the florida school shooter. this is not acceptable. they are spending too much time trying to prove russian collusion with the trump campaign. there is no collusion. president trump's tweet linking one of the worst school shootings in american history with the russian investigation overseen by his justice department drew sharp criticism. including from republicans. >> the president should be staying out of law enforcement business. >> reporter: arizona congressman ruben gallego blasted the
7:03 am
president on twitter. children are being buried today. could you please act presidential at least on their behalf? you really have no shame. the president is apparently fixated on friday's indictment of 13 russians behind an alleged scheme to meddle in american politics starting in 2014. he even went after his own national security adviser, h.r. mcmaster. after he said that evidence of russian hacking was, quote, incontrovertible. the president tweeting, general mcmaster forgot to say the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the russians. he later tweeted again, if it was the goal of the russians to create discord, disruption, and chaos in the u.s., then with all the committee hearings, investigations, and party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. they are laughing their expletives off in moscow. get smart america. the president also took aim at
7:04 am
oprah winfrey, after she appeared on "60 minutes" talking to michigan voters. the president tweeting, just watched a very insecure oprah winfrey who, at one point, i knew very well, interview a panel of people on "60 minutes." the questions were biased and slanted, the facts incorrect. hope oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated, just like all the others. the white house says the president will focus on the parkland shooting with several events here at the white house this week, including what officials are calling a listening session with high school students and teachers on wednesday. robin? >> jon, is there any indication at all that the president could change his stance concerning gun control laws? >> reporter: well, we'll see. we know that officials have told us the president said we need to quote do something in response to this shooting. "the washington post" reported the president was actually surveying people in mar-a-lago over the weekend, asking whether or not he should change his
7:05 am
stance on gun control. but robin, since the shooting, the president has barely uttered the word gun or guns at all. >> yeah, and much less gun control. we haven't heard that from him. thank you very much. cecilia, you spend a lot of time in that briefing room at the white house. what do you think? >> well, this one seems different from the resounding call for change from the kids in florida. we haven't heard the president say it's too soon to talk about gun control as he has before. but i gotta say, you know, this is a republican-controlled congress. it doesn't feel like there's momentum to make a big change right now on capitol hill. >> those kids are not going away. >> they have a loud call there. as we saw, the teen survivors of the florida school shooting are demanding change and calling for action on gun control. announcing a march on washington next month, called a march for our lives. abc's adrienne bankert is in parkland with more. good morning, adrienne. >> reporter: good morning to you, too, cecilia.
7:06 am
yes, they are some of the best and brightest here in parkland. and after facing tragedy, losing friends and teachers, they have become the faces of this new movement. using their heartache and taking action. still recovering. broward county sheriff scott israel came to the bedside of an injured teen. being hailed a hero this morning. 15-year-old anthony borges shot four times while trying to lock a classroom door. placing his body between the bullets and his classmates who all survived uninjured. as those who witnessed the violence are still reeling. this morning, the students at marjory stoneman douglas high are demanding their voices be heard. >> my innocence. our innocence has been taken from us. >> reporter: speaking at gun control rallies on saturday and sunday, sparking the movement, never again. >> adults have failed us, honestly, and kids are dying because of it. change needs to happen so no more lives are lost.
7:07 am
>> reporter: this morning, they say gun reform must become a reality. >> we are going to be the kids that you read about in textbooks. not because we're going to be another statistic about mass shootings in america. we're going to change the law. >> reporter: on tuesday, students meet with state lawmakers in tallahassee. and from there, prepare for rallies this week in parkland, florida, and across the country next month, including a march on washington. >> people are saying that it's not time to talk about gun control. and, we can respect that. here's the time. march 24th, in every single city. we're going to be marching together as students, begging for our lives. >> reporter: and you know, just like this memorial behind us, the never again organizers are hoping to send message that will not be ignored. they're asking for global support. michael? >> thank you, adrienne. and we're also learning more about the missed warning signs.

including a new video, first obtained by wplg, allegedly showing cruz in a fight at school in 2016. abc's victor oquendo is in park job -- parkland with new details. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, michael. we're getting a much closer look at the alleged shooter. in that video, first obtained by affiliate wplg. take a look. it shows nikolas cruz in an all-out fight with classmates. that is apparently cruz in the white shirt. the big question many are asking this morning is how did he slip through the cracks when there were so many red flags? from the dozen-plus times police were called to his home, to the florida department of children investigation. after cruz filmed a video cutting himself on snapchat. the reports there said he suffered from depression and wanted to by a weapon but in the end, they found no science of neglect and ended the investigation. the fbi admitted they got a detailed warning about him before the shooting. but that information was not
7:09 am
passed on to the appropriate agents. he's being charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and is now being held without bond. he's invoked his right to remain silent. being held in solitary confinement and on suicide watch. michael. >> victor, is there any word on when the school will reopen? >> reporter: michael, as of right now, the school is closed through at least wednesday. officials now saying that the building where most of the carnage took place may eventually be torn down. michael? >> thank you so much, victor. in our next half hour, we'll speak to the parents who took cruz in after his mother died. that's right here only on "gma." robin. now to that deadly flu epidemic. the cdc out with a new update saying at least 84 children have died from the virus this season. it's now widespread across most states. and abc's linsey davis is here with that latest information. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, robin. that new report from the cdc says 22 children died across the country from the flu in just the last week. the most since the epidemic began in the fall. overnight, the superintendent of
7:10 am
schools in elizabeth, new jersey, announced a child diagnosed with influenza passed away. if confirmed by health officials, it would mark the third flu death of a child in new jersey this year. but according to the cdc, there could be hope on the horizon. the percentage of doctor visits for the flu has leveled off over the last week. the fact that that number didn't increase is seen as a hopeful sign that we could be looking at the end of the flu season. robin? >> wael take it, any hope. thank you. now to a new winter storm warning. 24 states from california to vermont facing alerts this morning for flooding, ice, and heavy snow. one town in west virginia, completely under water. rob marciano is tracking the whole thing for us. hey, rob. >> the ohio river over its banks in mason, west virginia. downtown flooded. pomeroy, ohio, the highest river level since 2004. the cold side of this, rapid city, back through cheyenne, winter storm watches.

salt lake city, down to santa fe and the warm side of this, will be a lot of rain coming your way in chicago, detroit, cincinnati, as well. two waves of it coming through. late wednesday, we get clear skies. rain, three to five inches. that's going to be enough to flood all the way back down through dallas. out ahead of this, very warm for the east. near record-breaking temperatures. we'll talk more about that in just a few minutes. michael? >> thank you, rob. we're going to shift gears now to the olympic winter games. team usa hoping to grab more medals tonight. three ice skating pairs are in striking distance. and the women's hockey team, they won their big semifinal match overnight. 5-0. yes, they did. they're going for the gold. amy is in south korea with all the action. good morning, amy. >> that's right. mm-hmm is right. good morning to you, michael and cecilia, as well. the u.s. women's hockey team, yes, now looking to win their second gold medal after shutting out finland in the semifinals, 5-0.
7:12 am
they'll face either the olympic athletes from russia or canada. fyi, canada has won the last four olympic titles. one tradition the women's team continued to do despite officials asking them not to, shaking hands. officials are urging hockey players to fist-bump instead to slow the spread of the norovirus. the athletes say it's worth the risk to uphold the post game ritual. to each their own guys. team usa is looking strong. in ice dancing competition. the battle to the podium for ice dancing includes three american couples. skating their way straight into the finals leading in third place for the americans, zachary donahue and madison hubbell. then in fourth the shibutani sibs, alex and maia shibutani. and then rounding it out for team usa, evan bates and madison chock. the couples perform again to see who will take home a medal. also on the ice, a wardrobe malfunction. french ice dancer gabriella papadakis' costume becoming

7:14 am
five of them gold. norway, crushing it. they're in first place with 28 medals. nine of them gold. michael, guys, back to you. >> thank you so much, amy. you're not going anywhere because we have much more with you coming up. >> we're looking forward to that. we're going to turn now to lebron james' battle off the court. king james, a war of words with a conservative talk show host who told him to shut up and dribble instead of weighing in on politics. lebron had something to say at the all-star game and t.j. holmes has more. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: good morning robin. lebron has never been shy about giving his opinion. the fox host is questioning whether or not he's qualified to have one. >> here's lebron! >> reporter: lebron james was at the center of the nba and political worlds this weekend. >> taking flight here. >> reporter: competing in the nba all-star game, while also going head to head with fox news' laura ingraham who, on her show, told james to shut up. >> must they run their mouths
7:15 am
like that? unfortunately, a lot of kids and some adults take the ignorant comments seriously. so keep the political commentary to yourself. or as someone once said, shut up and dribble. >> reporter: ingraham was responding to comments james made in a recent interview about president trump. >> the number one job in america, the point of person who is someone who doesn't understand the people. and really don't give a [ bleep ] about the people. >> reporter: ingraham's "shut up and dribble" comment met rebukes from a number of pro athletes and a number of people online claimed her comments were racist after she called james unintelligible and ungrammatical. >> this is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the nba. >> we will definitely not shut up and dribble. i will definitely not do that. >> reporter: he was also asked about ingraham's comments at an all-star media session in l.a. seeming to appreciate the attention. >> i get to sit up here and talk about social injustice, equality, and why a woman on a
7:16 am
certain network decided to tell me to shut up and dribble. so, thank you, whatever her name is. >> reporter: on her show, ingraham addressed the controversy and insisted race had nothing to do with her criticism. fox news released this statement saying, if pro athletes and entertainers want to freelance as political pundits, then they should not be surprised when they're called out for insulting politicians. there was no racial intent in my remarks. muhammad ali, john carlos. tommy smith, althea gibson. you can keep going. jackie robinson. a longstanding tradition. he said, i am more than an athlete. that was his first response to it. >> one of the most charitable professional athletes there is in the country. >> and a savvy businessman, as well. >> lebron has brought a lot of attention to it. more people will listen. thank you so much t.j. lebron james, he let his play do the talking at the all-star game last night, leading his team to victory. and of course, the man took home his third mvp award from the all-star game. >> but, but, but -- >> but, robin, it is fergie's
