7:03 am
david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, adrienne and dan. the huge crowds have now moved on and the question is, can this powerful moment become a movement? that's now up to the lawmakers and the voters in the midterms. this is what democracy looks like. [ chanting ] >> i shouldn't go to school and expect to be shot. >> the legislators obviously aren't doing anything. >> reporter: pennsylvania avenue, packed from the doorstep of the u.s. capitol almost to the doorstep of the white house.

[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: and there was this powerful moment. parkland survivor emma gonzalez silently demonstrating the amount of time it took the gunman to turn her world upside down. >> since the time that i came out here, it has been six minutes and 20 seconds. >> reporter: from l.a., dallas, boston and new york city. >> we're going to keep fighting until gun control happens. >> reporter: hope it's the start of a political movement, message to politicians, do something or else. many wore marco rubio price tags. the millions in campaign contributions senator rubio has accepted from the gun lobby divided by the millions of young people in florida. $1.05.
7:05 am
rubio issued a statement saying in part, i respect their views and recognize that many americans support certain gun bans, however, many other americans do not support a gun ban. some gun right supporters held counterprotests saturday. >> we know that one of the unsafest places in the world are gun-free zones. these school shootings continue to happen in gun-free zones over and over and over. >> reporter: but that's not how it seems to 17-year-old suzanna barna, a photographer for "the eagle eye," the stoneman douglas high school newspaper. what does it mean for you to be here today? >> it means everything. it's incredible to see this happen because of what happened to us, the tragedy and just like that good is coming out of it. >> reporter: you really did get the sense out here that this was a coming of age rally. a lot of the young people participating not even old enough to vote but that isn't
7:06 am
stopping them. in fact, you get the sense they're just getting started. the big question now, how is that likely to change the debate here on pennsylvania avenue? dan and adrienne. >> yeah, and it's important to remember this is only a month after that dreadful school shooting. david, thank you so much. >> and they will be able to vote soon. >> that's true. in a very short time. the young survivors were at the center of much of the attention but there were plenty of celebrities on hand lending their name, voices and checkbooks to the cause. >> stars from ariana grande to george clooney to paul mccartney getting involved and abc's kenneth moton is also in washington this morning covering that angle for us. kenneth, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan and adrienne. no doubt the stars of this movement are the students, but to keep this fight in the spotlight, to keep the momentum, they'll likely needed the support and financial backing of those famous voices. ♪ come together >> reporter: star power boosting

7:08 am
standing with hundreds of thousands of marchers, george clooney and his wife humanitarian lawyer amal clooney. the couple donating a half a million dollars to the cause. and in new york, paul mccartney honoring john lennon. >> one of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here. >> reporter: stars also flooded social media to show their support like many of the activists who took the stage. celebrities also called on young marchers who will soon be 18 to get involved and vote. dan and adrienne. >> paul mccartney making a poignant reference to his friend john lennon who was shot in central park right near that march. kenneth moton, thank you very much. we appreciate it. we're going to turn now to the next story that is likely to dominate our political discussion in the era of trump, stormy daniels. >> tonight's the night for her big interview with "60 minutes" in which she will apparently discuss her alleged affair with trump. but speaking publicly may violate the terms of her nondiclosure agreement. abc news white house correspondent tara palmeri is in
7:09 am
west palm beach with the story. tara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan and adrienne. that's right. it's the first time president trump isn't punching back on twitter and interest in this interview could eclipse any major announcements or staff shake-ups coming out of the white house. adult film actress stormy daniels threatening the trump presidency in her quest to tell her story about their alleged affair. in a prime time interview, daniels breaking her silence about the alleged affair she claims started 12 years ago, just months after melania had given birth to barron. it's less about the sordid details of a relationship. it's the alleged cover-up. >> it is time to come clean. >> reporter: president trump's personal lawyer michael cohen acknowledges forming a delaware-based shell company to pay daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence. cohen says he was acting as a concerned friend. the money, he says, personal funds from a home equity line. daniels signed the deal just days before the election. the white house has denied the president has any connection to the agreement. >> it's impossible to know where it ends up but certainly there is precedent for a sitting u.s. president to become embroiled in litigation. >> reporter: daniels sued trump
7:10 am
alleging the agreement was void because then candidate trump never signed it. cohen and the president fired back in federal court claiming daniels has breached the agreement more than 20 times and that they'll be seeking at least $20 million in damages. bracing for backlash from trump and his legal team daniels' attorney michael avenatti tweeted out a picture of a dvd in a safe with a cryptic message, a picture is worth a thousand words. >> how should people know if ing there's anything on that dvd? >> if people think i'm bluffing, they should ask the opponents in countless cases i've had over the last 15 years if i'm generally a guy that bluffs. >> reporter: this just days after former "playboy" model karen mcdougal told anderson cooper about her months long affair with trump. >> were you in love with him? >> yes. >> and do you think he was in love with you? >> he was, yeah. >> reporter: according to the white house president trump and the first lady will not be together when the interview airs. president trump leaves for washington this afternoon and melania will stay behind with
7:11 am
their son barron. the first lady's office told abc news it's part of their spring break tradition. dan, adrienne. >> all right. tara, thank you very much. let's bring in abc's martha raddatz who is in washington where she's going to be hosting "this week" later this morning. martha, good morning to you. let's set aside whatever personal peril this creates for the president and his relationship. how much political peril, if any, does this interview pose for the president? >> well, dan and adrienne, as you know, a lot of people watched that karen mcdougal interview, and a lot more will probably watch the stormy daniels interview tonight. but i think we all have to remember that after that "access hollywood" tape, really nothing happened. he was elected president. people put that aside so tonight when they watch it, i think a lot depends on how much detail she gives. can the detail be proven in any way and, of course, what president trump's response is to that. >> good points, martha. you were at the march as well
7:12 am
yesterday. the images and speeches moving, but in a country that is deeply divided over gun rights, is this movement genuinely poised to make any concrete progress? >> well, you know, i have to say you really felt that yesterday. the pennsylvania avenue, as it is, david said, was absolutely packed. i talked to a lot of people. there was such a passion there and a lot of those kids talked about moving forward, they talked about the elections and they talked about the midterm elections. so that's where they're really concentrating their power on political change. you certainly get the feeling there will be change and we haven't really seen an anti-gun rally like that in this country that large. so you feel they have the momentum but we've heard that before. but they are determined to keep this going. >> yeah, we heard things like this after newtown, so we're really going to have to see, but interestingly and i know you'll talk about this on the show this morning, you also spent time this week in arizona with young people who are gun enthusiasts. how do they view these marches? >> yeah, you know, i think we
7:13 am
all have to remember that there is another part of america, a big part of america, that is very pro-gun, and in these communities, they shoot guns, they shoot trap. they hold on to their weapons and they will explain that they don't want anything to change, that they give the argument that it's the person who is shooting the gun, not the gun itself. so those are the people that those young people at that rally yesterday will have to change, will have to convince, will have to compromise. we had a wonderful conversation with both sides of that debate on these young people who all said i think we can compromise, so maybe there will be change, but we have to remember that there's another part of america, there's a big part of america that doesn't want that change. >> as we keep saying huge divisions in this country on this issue. martha, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> and i want to remind everybody martha has a big show this morning with complete analysis of the march for our
7:14 am
lives. she will go one-on-one with mark kelly, the co-founder of giffords: courage to fight gun violence. plus former joint chiefs chairman mike mullen and bush national security adviser stephen hadley discuss john bolton's appointment as national security adviser. that's coming up on "this week" right here on abc. right now let's get to ron and the rest of the day's headlines. good morning. >> hey there, adrienne, good morning to you and dan, kayna, sam, good morning to you. not in addition but my friend sam here and good morning, everyone. we are going to begin in texas with new details about the recorded confession of austin serial bomber mark conditt. congressman michael mccaul saying that the 23-year-old called himself a psychopath and said he felt no remorse, this in a video confession that was left behind, conditt is accused of killing two people and wounding several others in a series of package bombs. he died himself by blowing himself up in a car as police were closing in. and breaking news in italy. the italian news says they received a warning of a ter

♪ time for the "download." today we all know the importance of exercise, but does it really make a difference when you do it? i spoke recently to dan pink, author of the new book "when: the scientific secrets of perfect timing." he says the answer is yes. first quickly explain why timing matters. >> well, because we know from a rich body of science that our bodies and our brains do not stay the same throughout the day. our performance changes in very predictable sometimes dramatic ways over the course of a day both our cognitive performance and physical performance. >> really it's about what your goals are. when you know your goals you can pick when. what goals are best achieved by morning exercise? >> morning exercise is best if you want to lose weight. we burn off more calories during morning exercise than later in the day. morning exercise also seems to be better for habit formation. we're more likely to stick to a routine when we're exercising in

the morning. the final reason, which i think is a really good reason for morning exercise, cardio gives you a very significant mood boost and it lasts a pretty long time so if you exercise later in the day, you sleep away some of that mood boost. >> i've actually really noticed that. so what's the case for exercising in the afternoon? >> it's a different case but it's a good case. exercising in the late afternoon and early evening is better if you want to avoid injury because body temperature is higher and we are literally more warmed up. the same reason many people report that afternoon and evening exercise is more enjoyable. it's less effortful and that makes you more likely to keep doing it. and the final reason, which is really interesting, is you perform better later in the day. our hand/eye coordination is better. our lung function is better. our speed is better, in fact, there's a disproportionate number of world records that were set between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., especially in speed events. >> i do both which is why i have such huge muscles. dan, thank you very much. if you want to hear more of my conversation with dan pink, check out the 10% happier podcast available wherever you
