7:07 am
correspondent cecilia vega tracking it all. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning. the closer we get to midterms the more false claims there seem to be but on a major one that there are so-called middle easterners traveling in that caravan through mexico, president trump now concedes he doesn't have any evidence to back that up. hoping to rally his conservative base ahead of the crucial midterms, president trump is now embracing a label most presidents would shun. >> you know what i am, i'm a nationalist, okay. i'm a nationalist. [ applause ] i'm a nationalist. nationalist. use that word. >> reporter: a word often tied to racist movements. in the oval office the president was asked if he's trying to appeal to white nationalists. >> i've never even heard that. i cannot imagine that. you mean i say i'm a nationalist -- no, i never heard that theory about being a nationalist, i've heard them all but i'm somebody that loves our country. >> reporter: the president is also raising eyebrows by spreading an increasing number
7:08 am
of false claims. after this promise of a pre-midterm tax cut -- >> we'll be putting in a 10% tax cut for middle income families. it's going to be put in next week. >> reporter: now he says he'll introduce a resolution before voting starts, but any tax cut has to be approved by congress and they're not even in washington next week. the president also sounding the alarm with this claim. >> i don't think we like sanctuary cities up here. by the way, a lot of people in california don't want them either. they're rioting now. >> reporter: but no such riots ever happened. >> you said californians were rioting over the sanctuary city issue. where? >> you shouldn't have -- take a look. they want to get out of sanctuary cities. many places in california want to get out of sanctuary cities. >> but they're not rioting. >> it is rioting in some case. >> where are the riots? >> reporter: on that caravan of migrants traveling through mexico, he's threatening to send the military to the border.
7:09 am
>> we can't have people coming into our country illegally. it's not fair. >> what really could the military do at the border? >> they can do a lot. they're the military. right, fellas? they're the military. they can do a lot. >> reporter: but actually the military is limited in what they could do. domestically, they're barred from performing most law enforcement functions like arresting people. to do anything more, the president would have to get congress to approve, a long bureaucratic process. the chances of it concluding by the time the migrants reach the border, slim to none, and as for this unfounded claim -- >> you're going to find middle eastern, you're going to find everything. >> reporter: now the president conceding he doesn't actually have the proof. >> but no proof that they're in the caravan now? >> they could very well be. >> but there's no proof? >> there's no proof of anything there's no proof of anything but they very well could be. >> reporter: on top of that mexican authorities are saying there's zero evidence of any so-called middle easterners
7:10 am
being in this caravan traveling through their country. another false suggestion from the president that perhaps democrats have paid for this caravan. well, here's a new twist, the vice president right here in the oval office yesterday said that the president of honduras tells him that venezuelan leftist groups are backing the caravan now, george, so a real head scratcher. >> yeah, they're scrambling with all those explanations. meantime, as the turkish president called out saudi arabia for the killing of that "washington post" columnist, the president is ramping up his rhetoric there. >> reporter: yeah, he had been criticized for not responding more forcefully but yesterday here in the oval the president's tone shifted again. he is now calling this, quote, one of the worst cover-ups ever. secretary of state mike pompeo says that the administration will be revoking the visas of some of the saudis implicated in this death of jamal khashoggi. he's calling this, george, the first step. breaking us in. >> good morning to you, george. breaking news for our viewers in the west. secret service has intercepted
7:11 am
suspicious packages former president barack obama and former secretary of state hillary clinton. it's believed that this device was found near her home just outside of new york city some time after 1:00 this morning. similar to pipe bomb discovered two days ago in the mailbox of billionaire george soros' home. he's prominent supporter of democratic candidates. authorities said the device could have killed or seriously injured someone. a criminal investigation is now under way. so far no parties have claimed responsibility for any of the three devices we have reported so far. for now, let's send things back to you, michael. now, to that deadly virus outbreak killing at least six children.
7:12 am
and sickening a dozen at a medical center in new jersey. health officials are rushing to try to stop the spread. abc's whit johnson is outside the center in haskell, new jersey. good morning, whit. >> reporter: michael, good morning to you. new jersey department of health has just said a seventh child has died. health officials are calling it a severe outbreak of the adenovirus. they've been instructed to not admit any new patients during the investigation. this medical center treats children who require long-term care and many with all already-compromised immune systems. health officials say this particular strain of the virus together with the fragile population here made the outbreak even more severe and that they discovered minor handwashing deficiencies during
7:13 am
their initial inspections. it continues to fully co-operat with the agencies and has sought out their medical guidance with respect to the virus. at this time, no indication that the outbreak has spread beyond the walls of this facility. but state health officials are already on site implementing changes. >> the local nurses union claiming there was shortage at the medical facility. >> reporter: that's right. they have brought this up in the past, claiming about shortage of nurses at this facility. they say that can lead to poor infection control practices that ultimately puts the entire patient population at risk. michael? >> all right, thank you, whit. now to that dramatic scene in southern california. where a vintage plane crashed
7:14 am
into a busy highway. abc's kayna whitworth is in los angeles and, kayna, that pilot one lucky man. >> reporter: i know, george. good morning, california highway patrol calling it really the best case scenario if you have to land a plane on a highway. the pilot essentially walked away after he says the engine failed mid-flight. a dramatic plane crash on one of california's busiest freeways in the middle of the day. frightening video from inside a driver's car as they captured the unbelievable moment when this plane barrels toward the highway. unaware drivers passing underneath. the plane hitting the ground bouncing twice. the wing kicking up dust from the hill before crashing into the center divider. ultimately erupting in flames. drivers can't believe what they're seeing. >> it's terrible. we're moving about one or two car lengths every five minutes. it took us about one hour to go one mile. so it's pretty bad. >> reporter: 90 gallons of fuel spilling out, closing the road for hours creating a traffic nightmare, cars backed up for miles. the vintage world war ii airplane destroyed but miraculously nobody was hurt.
7:15 am
the pilot who says he was on a test flight walking out of the wreckage unharmed. despite the chaos, remaining calm. >> i picked a spot on the freeway where i knew there was a big section of cars that weren't there but the engine completely failed and i was able to fortunately not hurt anybody other than the airplane. >> so the ntsb was on scene quickly and they'll do the rest of their investigation at a nearby hangar so the highway could be re-opened. you guys, i've seen a lot of things in l.a. traffic. i think this takes the cake. >> that was a wild one. thanks, kayna. >> amazing. now to the red sox big win boston beating the dodgers 8-4 in game one of the world series. t.j. holmes was there for all the action there at fenway and he joins us from the field this morning. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. we had some drama and action before the game even started and that was related to the weather. we had a downpour here and we had a band of thunderstorms come through as you can see in some of this video.
7:16 am
but it actually caused them -- they cleared the field, the the players got off the field and told the fans to get out of the stands for a short time while this thunder and lightning went by and finally the game got started and, guys, this was a cold one. game one last year was in l.a. it was 103 degrees. it was 53 last night and we wonder if it had some impact on the game. this was supposed to be this big pitching duel between clayton kershaw of the dodgers and chris sale of the red sox. it just never developed. these two guys didn't really have a big impact on the game. kershaw even got lit up in the first inning giving up two runs. it still stayed a close game throughout even into the seventh inning. it was 5-4, but then a late three-run home run gives the red sox the victory here at home but, again, it was a question of whether the weather affected the beach boys of l.a. guys, that wind was whipping. it was cold here in fenway last night but kershaw said, hey, i just didn't pitch well.
7:17 am
the weather had nothing to do with it but some people have questions. i'm calling them the beach boys but this was the coldest game that the dodgers played their entire season. >> we can hear how cold it is. >> yeah, exactly. >> there was incentive to steal a base last night, too, right, t.j.? >> reporter: yes, yes, somebody won a billion dollars last night in the jackpot but we all won tacos, hey. taco bell does its promotion. they do the promotion every year that if somebody steals a base in the world series everybody gets a free taco. just one inning in, mookie betts, outfielder for the red sox, stole second. everybody gets a free taco. you can claim it on november 1st from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. at your story. we're all winners. >> if you can remember to claim it on november 1st. >> between 2:00 and 6:00. >> t.j., thank you for braving the elements. those are the biggest gloves i think i've ever seen on your hands but i know it's cold out there. thank you, t.j.
7:18 am
>> still no hat, robin. >> i know. don't make me go out there and put a hat on you. >> thank you, t.j. now back to ginger with stormy weather in the northeast, ginger. >> it's all about the weather, right? t.j. said it and in sagamore beach, massachusetts, they actually had a water spout come on shore. that was not the only rotation happening in the northeast. there was a confirmed tornado in lincoln. now the nor'easter that will come through, friday it'll be here in the mid-atlantic and then the northeast here through saturday.

so go in there and that helps to cancel out any redness and makes your eyes pop wide open and using a good light reflecting concealer. >> oh, yes, concealer. >> concealer is key. >> you know. >> we love a good light reflecting one. this is an "allure" best of beauty award winner for this year. we got our model here. >> this alaina george. she's my makeup artist. >> the eyes really -- >> this is what she uses as well. >> the eyes really show a lot of fatigue. if you use a color one shade lighter than your skin tone it helps to brighten everything up. >> you don't feel cakey or anything like that. >> not at all. >> okay, i didn't wake up like this just so you know. all right. and now the hair. >> we love this. i've actually done it a little bit today too. typically when we're tired gravity tends to pull everything down. think going up. it's going to pull your eye up and also i love this trick because it's basically like doing a little hair face-lift and you want to just think high ponytail or big top knot.

time here, michelle, tell us about when it's fall and the skin that you're going through and little things you can do. >> oh, yeah, fall is really tricky because the weather is changing and the humidity is changing. i'm a big fan of serums and a really great moisturizer and also just because it's not hot and summertime outside make sure you wear spf every single day. >> that's right. do you have a tip, alaina? >> this helps broaden out your face also, it brightens it. >> all right. >> thank you all very much. and the november issue.

8:31 am
you use in certain recipes. >> well, yes, are you baking them, serving them raw, want something crisp, sweet? there's literally thousands of types of apples out there. you go to the grocery store and you see them all. >> that's true. >> you're like, which ones do i buy? one thing i would say is buy one of each, see what you like, all right? >> thank you. >> i can say, i can say gala, all these names, pink lady, until you taste them you don't know. >> gala apple was my mom's favorite. every time she would come to visit from mississippi, it was, it was. so you're saying these are some of your suggestions. >> yes. >> so we have this beautiful studio audience that will take -- jessica, aren't you close to my hometown? >> yes. >> where are you from? >> long beach. >> long beach bearcats. okay. so you all are going to choose what you think is the best apple for a particular recipe. for applesauce, jessica, what do you think would be the best apple? >> red. >> eh!
8:32 am
wrong. now if that were a macintosh you would have been right but this is a golden delicious. what you want for applesauce is something sweet, something relatively soft texture. you're going to cook it and bake it down basically. >> okay. >> to make applesauce you just cut it, take out the core if you want with the little corer sort of thing, 35, 40 minutes, cinnamon, mm-mm. you got to do that and this is a food mill. ever use a food mill? >> no, i haven't. >> your mom never used a food mill, old school? put it through there and can do it with the skins on and it comes through and you get it nice and smooth but a little bit of chunky. now if you do a food processor, that's okay. don't overdo it. you want applesauce not apple juice. >> okay. you all knew this was coming. >> what a kind audience. >> they're very kind. so with the applesauce, pork chops and applesauce. pork chops and applesauce, "brady bunch." who do we have here that's going to help us out? ida? >> yeah. >> because it's a nice apple to pair with the pork chop.
8:33 am
what do you think would be the best apple for that? >> granny smith. >> wrong again. >> all right. i'm -- listen, i'll give you something. you could have used granny smith on this. in this case we're using pink lady. what you want, we're doing an apple endive salad with some -- you cook the pork chop in the pan, then you take it out and all that nice porky bits and throw in hazelnuts and shallot, saute that and pour it over the salad. >> date night. >> date night pork chops. what you want here because you're serving the apples raw, you want them literally and figuratively crisp. you want them to hold their shape and them a little acidic to play off the bitterness of the endive and fattiness of the pork chop. >> i love you. >> my gosh. >> the way you describe it is -- >> that's my job. >> all right. now we got to have -- >> if you don't get this one right -- you literally have to get this one right. >> eric, which apple do you think is best for the apple pie? >> the granny smith. >> yes! [ applause ]
8:34 am
>> whoo. >> although you picked up a golden delicious. >> it's hard to tell. >> i know, it's hard. what you want -- when you're baking apple pie you want, a, an apple that will hole its shape when it's baked. you don't want applesauce in your apple pie. you want an apple that's relatively high in acidity, kind of tart to play off all that butter and cheese in the crust. >> oh. >> uh-huh and maybe a little vanilla. ice cream or cream, whatever you got going with it. what do you have with apple pie? >> cheese? >> a lot of people like to serve cheese -- anyone ever do the cheese on top of the apple pie and heat it up? i think it's more of a midwest thing. you heat it so the cheese melts on top of the pie. >> a la mode. >> what about fresh whipped cream? [ applause ] >> oh, wow, look at that. you're like, i want my ice cream. >> why not all three.
8:35 am
>> why not. you know what we can do, the hybrid. i get the ice cream, you get the whipped cream. >> as long as i get the pork chops and applesauce. also, thank you. you bring it to life. your zest for life and bringing it to us and every time i leave here after being with you, i just cannot wait to get in the kitchen. >> i know, thank you. you have like a three-course meal right here. >> that's it. >> enjoy. >> thank you, thank you, thank you. you can get this month's "bon appetit" on newsstands now. he always has the best shoes. >> i got my kicks on. coming up we got jonah hill. he's here live. coming up we got jonah hill. coming up we got jonah hill. he's here live. proposition 11 solves two issues. first, it continues to pay paramedics while we're on break. second, it ensures the closest ambulance can respond if you call 9-1-1. vote yes on 11.

[ applause ] >> what's up, man? >> good to see you. >> good. >> have a seat. [ applause ] >> how is it going? [ applause ] >> you are one talented fella. you're one talented fella. we love you in the movies but
8:39 am
also "gq," they just said you are a style icon and so how does that make you feel? "gq" magazine said you are a style icon. how do you feel about that? >> it's cool. i don't know. i think clothing is a form of personal expression. i think, you know, we all wear stuff either you don't give a crap or you do and i was about to say the "s" word but i realized we're on so early in the morning and people are still waking up. no, i take -- i enjoy it. it's like another form of personal expression. it's just another form of how you express yourself. >> you're casual cool. so much in fact this summer it wasn't the first but the second jonah hill day where all these people who are fans of yours and fans of your style actually get together, and you actually went this year. >> they throw an annual day and then the first time i didn't go because i wasn't quite sure what
8:40 am
it was and then i realized it was like these people celebrating and so i went and it was pretty surreal to be honest. i went and it was actually really fun. >> you say celebrate. they were celebrating you which is really cool. >> i mean, that's really actually pretty cool. yeah, it's cool. [ applause ] >> and now we're going to celebrate you and your new movie "mid90s." >> yeah. >> this is a coming of age story about a preteen skateboarder who finds his friends, they're older, more experienced skaters and this is in the '90s. >> yeah. >> you said your personal experience helped with you the story. how was that? >> in the sense that it's, you know, i can relate to the loneliness of growing up and finding a community outside of my home and a group of friends outside my home and the star of our film, sunny suljic, is right here -- right in the middle. i don't know if they can show him on tv. >> there he is, sunny. >> that's my dude. this guy is an amazing actor. he's -- that's my brother.
8:41 am
he's a great guy and amazing actor. but it's a time of your life when it's you and your friends versus the world and when your friends mean more than your family and i happened to choose growing up skateboarding in l.a. as the backdrop for it but it's really just this amazing group of people that find one another and, yeah, and it celebrates a lot of the things that i see disrespected on screen a lot that i tried to do a good job, you know. one of them is skateboarding which is always shown like cowabunga, dude, as opposed to something that changed a lot of people's lives and continues to change and hip-hop music which a big reason why i made the film was to show that like tribe or mob deep to me was like what the beatles or the rolling stones were to my parents and not just like some move in a movie by playing a song. that is the music that for -- i'll speak for myself just was life changing and was the music i grew up on so i wanted to see it shown in a way in a film that
8:42 am
just shows like this is what the music of this generation was and it was the best music of this generation and 100 years from now, you know, deejay premiere will be mozart and q-tip will be john lennon and that's important to me. [ applause ] >> we'll take a look at a clip. this is sunny's character, stevie, who is racing home after a day of skating with -- >> sunny suljic! what up! [ applause ] ♪ >> i'm so sorry i'm late. it won't ever happen again. >> it's only 7:30. >> oh. okay. [ applause ] >> lost track of time hanging out with his new friends. you know what i found interesting, sunny was hanging out at a skate park. you showed up and he ended up
8:43 am
getting a job and you said this was your first time directing. but you had to direct a bunch of skaters you had to teach how to act, not a bunch of actors you had to teach how to skate. was that a big challenge for you? >> i would say challenge is one way of putting it, and joy is the real way of putting it which is like, you know, i've been acting for 16 years. i've worked with a lot of amazing actors, as great as they could get. to me it was so special to work with a group of people who were new to the filmmaking process, you know, and a friend of ours, mikey who owns a legal sif, he brought in all the young skateboarders in los angeles and when i got to meet these young people, it was really interesting because -- i sound like i'm 150 years old, when i got to meet these young people. but when i grew up in l.a. skating it was like really -- it was just in the '90s, oh, it's just like you're over
8:44 am
everything. it's so -- it's not cool to try. it's mad corny to try anything and like what i loved about this generation and this group of people that is in the film, they're all pro skaters, rappers, painters, artists, now actors like and they don't limit themselves and to watch this group of people attack acting for the first time with such ferocity to become great actors and artists, it was the most amazing part of the whole experience. >> one quick question for my man sunny sitting in the front row. sunny, jonah took away everybody's cell phone on set to make it feel like the '90s. how did you survive? >> i mean, i didn't really like -- i didn't need my phone in the first place because i mean it just would have been disrespectful. it's a good scene and my phone just rang so i didn't really want to be that guy. [ applause ] >> in sunny's audition his
8:45 am
phone rang and it was annoying t.j. >> oh yeah. >> it said annoying t.j. >> the contact list is annoying t.j. >> i guess it went off in the audition. he's like, it's not going to happen on set. >> no, this guy is -- i'm 34 and been acting for 16 years. he was 11 when i shot and i never had to carry a movie like he carries this movie and he's brilliant in it and everybody is brilliant in it. the only reason i set it in the '90s was because we didn't have cell phones or instagram or anything so people actually connected with one another. and that's what the film is ultimately about. >> the thing is, we're so happy you're here and i know it took you three years write this. 20 scripts to get it right and you got it right and you're so talented. >> thank you. >> always good to see you. >> appreciate it, man. and i'll say to the audience at home, this is a good man. every time i see this guy. >> it's "mid90s" in select theaters right now and it's out nationwide on friday. make sure you go check it out, everybody.
