powerful winter storm that's hitting right know. >> let's look at the roads on i-90 in chicago. moving along pretty well right now, but the snow has caused a lot of problems for drivers. at times some accidents all across the midwest. >> a lot of frustrated people out there. airlines are trying to de-ice planes and get travelers home, but thousands of flights were canceled or delayed on the busiest travel day of the year. >> and this morning, hundreds of more flights are already cancelled or delayed. abc's alex perez is at o'hare airport in chicago with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it's been a long night for a lot of passengers here at the airport. the storm's timing could not be any worse. a rude awakening for millions of passengers who thought they were going to get home. this morning, the dangerous winter storm bringing heavy snow, pushing east. forcing airlines to cancel over 1200 flights, delaying more than 5,000 others on the busiest travel day of the year. >> oh, man. it's been hectic, bro. really bad, really terrible.
>> reporter: stranded passengers are spending the night in packed airports from chicago to charlotte. >> you're just stuck in here. everybody is in the same boat and you really cannot do anything about it. >> reporter: blizzard conditions shutting down parts of interstate 70. the governor of kansas declaring a state of disaster emergency. >> it's bad out here. the visibility is probably less than a couple of car lengths in front of us. >> reporter: whiteout conditions across the heartland from kansas to missouri and into the great lakes, making it nearly impossible to see. this tour bus trapped after a spinout, blocking the highway in iowa causing a backup for miles. along i-88 in illinois, multiple vehicles including a jackknifed semi sliding off the road blocking lanes. in kansas, the situation so bad at one point the governor there asked, warned residents not to go outside at all. this storm is moving out of the
area, but the residual problems will be felt here all day, cecilia. >> we can see those lines behind you, alex. okay, thank you. that storm system as alex said is heading east creating headaches on the road right now, but the real concern is tonight when millions head home from work. rob is tracking it all. hey, rob. >> hi, cecilia. wind and snow and rain. look at this snow. it's a good thing for ski resorts but not when it's blowing 80, 90 miles per hour. this is loveland pass, about 13,000 feet, and we have nine states reporting 50 mile-per-hour winds and a foot of snow. this is the first november blizzard in missouri and illinois since at least 1959. you're stilll getting it just outside of chicago, and this low will track just to the south of detroit. snow north and west of there, and heavy rain into the i-95 area right around rush hour and the heavy snow will pile up, 6 inches to 12 inches, northwest of i-95, but some seriously heavy rain here, philly and new york up through boston right through tomorrow morning. coastal flight impact.
we'll talk about that in a little bit. george. now to the rising tensions at the u.s. border with mexico. a port was shut down and migrants tried to breach a fence and border patrol used tear gas to try to stop them. this photo showed around the world shows the family running from the fumes. the border is open again now. our chief correspondent matt gutman is there with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, george, security is tighter here on the u.s. side of the border. the mexican government says it is going to deport the 500 or so migrants it says were involved in the clashes which shut down the busiest terminal on the planet. it began sunday when hundreds of central american migrants protested at the border south of san diego. at first clashing with mexican police in riot gear, and then some sprinting past them and skirting those pickup trucks and barriers into the maze of canals near the border terminal. many seen climbing over barricades and hopping onto
trains. behind those coils of wire, dozens of heavily armed u.s. border patrol firing tear gas and pepper balls from close range. many hundreds beating a frantic retreat. among those caught in the clouds of tear gas, mothers clutching children. the chaos engulfing the northbound lanes of the crossing, one of the busiest terminal crossings on the planet, ordered shut down completely for hours. they arrested 39 migrants and migrant groups say several people were hurt. u.s. customs and border patrol saying in a statement, in responding to some of the multiple incidents, cbp personnel were required to deploy crowd-disbursing devices to include pepper ball launching systems and cs can nicer thes. president trump says they will meet them with force to stop the
caravans long before they get to the southern border. for weeks, the thousands of mostly hondurans marched peacefully, making the trek from southern mexico without incident. caravan organizers tell me those migrants are not going anywhere. right now, they say there are about 5,000 migrants on the tijuana side of the border. that number is expected to swell to 9,000. i'm told many will seek asylum status in mexico, but the bulk of them will try to get asylum here at the u.s. this border terminal which can only accommodate about 100 people a day and that means they could be processing these people here for months. george. >> thanks very much. let's bring in jon karl for more on this, and jon, all through the weekend talk of negotiations between the u.s. and mexico to keep those migrants in mexico, and now the president tweeting this morning
he may permanently shut down the border, or at least try. >> reporter: he is certainly making that threat, george, but the administration is trying to work out a deal with the incoming president of mexico. he takes office on saturday. an agreement that would keep those migrants on the mexican side of the border while they wait for those asym claims. there have been conflicting reports about the progress on negotiations. the incoming mexican interior minister said that no deal has been reached yet. meanwhile, the president is up this morning already tweeting about all of this saying that mexico should send those migrants back to their home countries saying, do it by plane. do it by bus. do it any way you want, but they are not coming into the u.s. we will close the border permanently if need be. >> jon, meantime, on the mueller investigation, status expected on paul manafort, whether or not he is cooperating with mueller today. the white house appears to be bracing from a tough report from mueller. i was talking to alan dershowitz who said it could be
devastating. >> reporter: absolutely, and it's a huge unknown. the white house and the president's legal team, they don't know when this report is coming, what in what form it is coming, but they are certainly bracing for bad news from robert mueller. the words from alan dershowitz, who has been a strong supporter of the president were stark, saying this will be devastating to the president. >> thank you very much. coming up, two of president trump's closest political confidantes, corey lewandowski and david bossie are here with their new book, "trump's enemy." cecilia. >> looking forward to that one, george. we want to turn to a tense battle over the senate seat in mississippi. president trump heads there today to campaign for the embattled republican candidate cindy hyde-smith who is facing accusations of racism and supporting voter suppression. our chief national affairs correspondent tom llamas is here with more. tom, those voters head to the polls tomorrow. >> reporter: that's right, cecilia, and good morning. you'll remember that it was around this time last year neighboring alabama elected its first democrat to the senate in decades. this is a much different race,
but president trump is now on a mission to mississippi to try and help the stumbling campaign of senator cindy hyde-smith. just one day before that runoff election in mississippi, and senator cindy hyde-smith trying to fend off an upset against mike espy. her recent comments, photos, and even her own personal history raising questions about where she stands on her state's racist past. "the jackson free press" reporting she went to high school at an all-white private school critics have called a segregation academy. that's her, third from the right, a cheerleader for the rebels. years later, the paper says she sent her daughter to a similar school. hyde-smith's campaign calls the allegations a new low, this after a photo from her own facebook page showed her wearing a confederate army cap at the home of jefferson davis, the president of the confederate states. the caption, mississippi history at its best. and this video of her joking with a supporter.
>> if he invited me to a public hanging, i'd be in the front row. >> reporter: she later apologized. >> there was no ill will, no intent whatsoever in my statement. >> reporter: her opponent, mike espy, is hoping to become the state's first black senator since reconstruction. >> i don't know what's in your heart but we all know what came out of your mouth. >> reporter: but espy's past as a lobbyist has also become an issue. >> have you ever been paid $750,000 from a foreign dictator charged with crimes against humanity? mike espy has. >> reporter: espy says he canceled his contract with the leader of ivory coast once he found out about those charges and passed on what he knew to the cia. now, several companies have asked for their donations back from the hyde-smith campaign including walmart and major league baseball. unclear if the campaign will do that. one of the reasons president trump will be hosting two rallies today in mississippi is that he is incredibly popular there, winning in 2016, guys, by 18 points. >> this is a state republicans do not want to lose.
>> right. >> thanks, tom. now we're going to go to that outrage that is growing over a fatal police shooting in alabama. officers now say they targeted the wrong man when they responded to shots fired at a mall. this morning, the family of that gentleman right there, 21-year-old e.j. bradford, demanding to see the bodycam video. abc's steve osunsami has the story. >> reporter: the grieving family of 21-year-old e.j. bradford jr. is demanding answers this morning. he was shot and killed by police during the confusion of a thanksgiving day shooting at this mall south of birmingham. >> it hurts me to the core. my son is gone. i can't get him back. >> reporter: during a family news conference, it was too much for his grandmother who fainted. >> everybody out. out now. >> reporter: shoppers were dodging bullets thursday after a fight at the mall turned into a gunfight. when police arrived, they initially believed that bradford was the shooter. the young man seen here in uniform who briefly trained in the army was holding a gun. >> we've got officers on the
scene. there have been shots fired. >> reporter: bradford was shot and killed by a responding officer and then blamed for the shooting. two people had to be hospitalized, but this morning, police have changed the story, saying that he was not the shooter and that the real suspect is still on the run. >> they just went and rushed to judgment on national tv. my son's name, got my son looking like he is a killer. >> reporter: in a statement, the hoover police department is explaining, saying that the 21-year-old brandished a gun during the seconds following the gunshots, which instantly heightened the threat to approaching police officers. >> a black life was taken away. a black man literally gave his life for this country for them to take it away from him. >> reporter: his family says he was probably trying to help and that he was legally carrying the gun. >> we definitely will get justice for our child so no other parent should have to go through this. >> reporter: in the gun deba, there is often that argument about the good guy with the gun,
and the family of the victim killed here says that's what he was, a good guy with the gun, and they believe he is dead this morning because he's black. the officer who shot him remains on administrative leave. >> tragic beyond words. >> certainly is. we'll move overseas now to a dangerous confrontation between russia and ukraine. the ukrainian navy says the russians blocked three ships near the black sea, and the u.n. scheduled an emergency council meeting for the standoff, and martha raddatz is tracking the latest from washington. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. a critical u.s. strategic partner, already simmering, but this could bring things to a boil. the ukrainians say russia prevented its ships from transiting a key waterway. video released this morning shows a russian vessel ramming a ukrainian tugboat, and they say they then opened fire injuring several sailors and seizing several of its vessels. russia says it had warned the
ships to stop. russia scrambled military helicopters and warplanes during the standoff and ukraine's president is asking that martial law be imposed. to mobilize its armed forces. nato is calling for restraint on both sides as the u.n. security council prepares to meet just hours from now, george. >> and that martial law could mean postponing elections as well. martha raddatz, thanks very much. cecilia? we turn to a mission to mars. the spacecraft named the insight lander is expected to touch down on the red planet this afternoon. abc's clayton sandell is right there at mission control at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory in pasadena, california, where scientists are nervous about what they could find today. clayton, hey. >> reporter: right here behind me is a mock-up of that, and as you said, they are nervous because getting to mars is hard, and they are -- more than half of all mars' missions actually have failed and the problem is that the insight mission will also have to survive seven minutes of terror.
that's when the lander hits the mars atmosphere at 13,000 miles an hour, heating to almost 3,000 degrees and that is hot enough to melt steel. everything on board from the heat shield to the parachute, to the landing rockets, have to work perfectly and automatically in order to slow insight to landing around 5 miles an hour. if it sticks the landing, it will be the first mission to probe deep inside the interior of mars and hopefully unlocks mysteries about how mars, the earth and some of the other planets in the solar system formed, cecilia. >> but that seven minutes of terror will feel like a lifetime to those scientists. when will we see what they see? will there be pictures? >> reporter: there will be pictures, hopefully soon. the lander is programmed to take pictures just a few minutes after it lands and they tell us they may be able to get those pictures back to earth within 10 to 20 minutes after landing. >> all right, clayton. thank you. over to you, robin. today, cecilia, is also cyber monday. saw a huge jump in spending on black friday, up 24%, and today's sales are expected to
bring in nearly $8 billion. our consumer correspondent, becky worley, is at the walmart distribution center in pennsylvania. becky, shopping and shipping in full swing. good morning. >> reporter: oh, boy, is it in full swing, robin. there are 21 football fields under roof here, 12 miles of conveyer belts and all that shopping is fueled by the deals. so let's get to it. just to give you some examples from walmart, these lego classics, 30% off. this doc mcstuffins push cart, great for toddlers, that's 60% off and then the toy for the big kids, this laptop, is $799 today. parents are really thinking about those toy purchases, those all at walmart, robin. >> okay, that's one "t." now the second one, tech. >> reporter: oh, yeah, let's do rapid-fire tech deals. i found an external hard drive good for all of those photos and videos, four terabytes for $80

yelling at the tribe member for shooting me. chau says he then fled, swimming back to his boat where he left the journal, but later returned to that island despite knowing the dangers. he writes, this is not a pointless thing. the eternal lives of this tribe is at hand. you guys might think i'm crazy in all this, but i think it's worth it to declare jesus to these people. chau's friends say he wanted to go to north sentinel island for years. it's home to sentinelese, one of the most isolated tribes in the world. >> this was his life mission. this is what god has called him to do, which is to go and share the love of god with these people. >> reporter: contact with the sentinelese people is illegal because it could expose them to our diseases which could prove deadly. unable to communicate with outsiders, the tribe is known to be hostile. after the 2004 tsunami, this tribe member was seen firing
arrows at a helicopter sent to check on their well-being. chau seeming to acknowledge those potential dangers his actions could bring, writing, quote, i think i could be more useful alive, but to you, god, i give all the glory to whatever happens. forgive any of the people on this island who try to kill me, especially if they succeed. now, local indian officials believe they know where the american missionary is buried, but that it may not be possible to retrieve his remains without endangering more lives. as for the fishermen who helped him get to the island, they have been charged with culpable homicide. >> do we have any idea the number of isolated tribes like this that are out there? >> there are about 100 uncontacted tribes around the world, and as we mentioned in the piece, this is serious because it could expose them to disease. they don't have the immune

best advocates on the outside and we want him to succeed. we want america to succeed, and that's what this book is trying to do. show people. >> it often creates tension, and you wrote that at one point it got physical between you and general kelly. is that what happened? >> look, i don't want to talk about what may or may not have happened with john kelly, what i can tell you we have had very candid conversations about the way that we think that this president should be out talking with the people. i believe, and we wrote this in our first book, "let trump be trump." the president is at his best when he is on the road seeing the american people and there is a mindset inside the white house when the new chief of staff came in to limit the access to people and to keep him at bay from everybody else, and i thought that was a fundamental mistake. so i let john and others know about that. >> the president seems unhappy with just about everybody around him right now. maybe you guys are excluded since you're not inside the white house. he has talked about secretary nielsen and steve mnuchin. he talks about general mattis being a democrat.
if he is surrounded by so many people he is unhappy with, why not clean house? >> well, i think you're going to see changes after, you know, with the midterms happening and now behind us, you're going to see some natural changes in the white house staff, in the cabinet. i would assume, but if you look at -- look, morale in a white house goes up and down. we have all seen that through many presidents and i would posit that reince priebus' tenure was as good or better than right now. >> you were not happy with that. >> reince was not set up in the first seven months for success, and he did an admirable job and got policy successes. >> let's talk about robert mueller who is hanging over this entire white house right now. i was talking to alan dershowitz yesterday who has been an ally of the president and he says
this report from robert mueller will be devastating to the president. do you agree and what should the president do about it? >> george, we sat down for the president with this book and we asked him about the mueller investigation and talked about what his answer is. he says a couple of things, you know, number one. i was there during a significant portion of the campaign. there was no collusion or cooperation between us and anybody from some foreign entity to impact the outcome of the election. >> what if robert mueller shows that then? >> i think people deserve to see the full mueller report when it comes out and i know it's up to the department of justice to release that investigation, but the millions of dollars that have gone in, we want the right to see what mueller is going to say either did or didn't transpire. we know that anybody who has been caught in this mueller investigation, whether it's george papadopoulos, people, had things that had nothing to do with the campaign. george papadopoulos who reports to prison today, was accused and been convicted of lying to the fbi.
>> on paul manafort and whether he is cooperating with this investigation. you guys call him a rat. >> we say a lot of things about a lot of people in "trump's enemies." but, look, we want to make sure that this mueller report, whatever it's going to entail talks about jim comey and what he did, talks about whether or not barac obama knew about the spying operation, whether those folks, strzok and page. we've seen the texts. whether barack obama was informed of those activities because there are allegations he did know, and one of the things we think is important is the mainstream media, being used by those in the fbi. the strzoks and pages and mccabes, comey's leaks. >> those leaks never came out before the election. >> not before the elections, but what they did was put stories out and used them to go after people. that is what's very important, using a badge once you place the media stories, not the way to do law enforcement.

and a half of heartbreak, he is finally coming home to his family. when sinatra disappeared from his home in brooklyn 18 months ago, his family was devastated, fearing he was lost for good. little did they know, 1200 miles away a miracle was under way. >> at my bus stop, and i saw this dog coming down the road. >> reporter: no one knows how he did it, but somehow the 5-year-old blue-eyed brown and white husky made the journey south all the way to seffner, florida and into the arms of rose verrill. >> i immediately checked with my mother and my sister, and my sister ran out and got him. >> reporter: rose and mom, denise, used sinatra's chip to locate the owner, but the phone number was off by one digit so they turned to social media and found sinatra's owners, the willis family at their home in brooklyn. >> then she described him and i was just elated that it was possibly him. >> reporter: what made this all the more painful for the willis family, sinatra ran off shortly
after 16-year-old zion willis tragically passed away from a tragic gun accident. >> they loved each other. there's no other way to describe it. >> reporter: now a reunion is in the works for later today. >> sinatra. >> he was really a great guest to have. >> i want to say thank you so much from myself and my family. we're elated beyond measure. >> so rose and her mom did it their way. never giving up. sinatra left florida last night, you guys. i have chills, driving through the night to maryland. he'll be back with his owners here in new york by tonight. >> oh, goodness. i know. he was supposed to come yesterday, but the travel with all the weather happening. >> he too got stuck in turkey traffic. sinatra will be home. >> yeah. >> and the connection that sinatra's dad, because of zion's loss, very important.

intends to deport up to 500 migrants that were involved in those clashes. it began sunday when hundreds of central american migrants protested at the border south of san diego. at first, clashing with mexican police in riot gear and some sprinting past them and skirting those pickup trucks and barriers into the maze of canals near the san ysidro border terminal. many seen climbing over barricades and hopping onto trains. behind those coils of wire, dozens of heavily armed u.s. border patrol firing tear gas and pepper balls at close range. many of them in a frantic retreat. among those caught in the clouds of tear gas, mothers clutching children. the chaos engulfing the northbound lanes of the san ysidro crossing at one of the busiest terminals on the planet, ordered shut down completely for hours. mexican authorities say they arrested 39 migrants and migrant groups say several people were hurt. u.s. customs and border protection saying in a

[ cheers and applause ] thank you x robin. missed you. good morning to you guys and to you. we're going to begin with movie news and "ralph" breaks the box office. the animated sequel "ralph breaks the internet" raking in a massive $56 million for the weekend, $90 million over the five-day holiday period, making it the second best thanksgiving debut ever behind only "frozen." >> wow. >> that wasn't the only sequel bringing home the bacon over turkey day. michael b. jordan's "creed ii" was also a knockout coming in at number two. >> strong. >> yeah. this was the biggest thanksgiving ever at the movies. >> was it really? >> i was surprised too.
that's why i wanted to put it at the top. big year at the movies. >> chilly outside. >> i guess that is the case. we also have some royal news. a royal shakeup. it seems that the sussexes are moving on up. or at least out to windsor. in a brief statement released over the weekend, kensington palace announcing that meghan and harry will move to frogmore cottage on the grounds of windsor castle. royal watchers had assumed they would stay close to william and kate, but the sussexes are doing things their own way. windsor they say is a very special place for their royal highnesses and while meghan is in london planning the move for early in the new year, harry has just landed in zambia for an official visit. there he is moments ago touching down. >> they call it a cottage? >> mm-hmm. >> ten bedrooms. >> when we say cottage, we don't mean cottage.

and finally, a new study confirms what robin, myself and a lot of others have known, a dog may just be the be all end all secret to a great night's sleep. this study, george, i'm not leaving you out, was geared at women only. scientists found nearly 1,000 women and they have determined that dogs, i'm sorry, george, were less disruptive to sleep than our human counterparts and they are associated with strong feelings of comfort, security and even helped end or stop nightmares altogether in the study. i'm just saying in conclusion a few paw marks on the comforter seems like a small price to pay. >> for a great night's sleep. >> the third person in the bed doesn't get a good night's sleep. >> all the dogs in the bed? >> they are back in the bed. we had conquered that for awhile. >> they are back? >> they are back. >> lara, thank you so much. rescue dog. now to our "gma" cover story, those claims overnight that the world's first genetically edited babies have been born. of course, there is a lot of
controversy around this claim. now, this kind of gene surgery is banned in so many countries, the scientist behind the procedure says it was intended to protect the babies from future hiv infection. dr. ashton is standing by with more. but first, erielle reshef, you have our attention. good morning. >> this is a big story, robin. good morning to you. this chinese doctor championing this achievement as a breakthrough saying his goal was to create resistance to hiv. if the claims are proven true, it would be a profound and highly controversial leap in science and in ethics. >> reporter: overnight, an astonishing and dubious claim. a scientist in china saying he created the world's first genetically engineered babies. >> two beautiful little chinese girls, lulu and nana, came crying into the world as healthy as any other babies. >> reporter: the team of geneticists and fertility specialists announcing the so-called breakthrough on youtube. according to those researchers,
they used a controversial gene-editing technology to manipulate the twins' data. the purpose, not to cure or prevent an inherited disease, but something else entirely, supposedly giving these twin girls the ability to resist hiv infection. >> the gene surgery worked safely. no gene was changed except the one to prevent hiv infection. >> reporter: seven couples were involved in the fertility treatments. all the potential fathers have hiv. the potential mothers did not. the scientist says the intention was not to prevent transmission, but instead to protect the child from being infected with hiv in the future. this morning in hong kong, at the conference where the international community is gathering to discuss the implications of genetic editing, dr. jennifer doudna telling us this. >> i think it's a break from what was recommended by the report released by the national academy of sciences last year in 2017 that encouraged and opened a transparent approach to any clinical use of human embryo
editing that would involve careful establishment of a process, and following guidelines that were put in place by an international consortium of scientists and i don't think that that appears to have been done in this case. >> reporter: and there has been no independent confirmation of the doctor's claim but this announcement has already been widely condemned by scientists who say it was a dangerous precedent. this experimentation is illegal here in the u.s. and most other countries. >> we're keeping that in mind, erielle. thank you so much. dr. ashton is here now do tell. >> first of all, robin, this is not a new technology, and with this story it's not a question of whether this could be done at all. it's a question of if, when, why and how? let me tell you about this technology. it's called a crisper gene editing. you take a strand of dna which codes for genes and this crisper acts like scissors, removes the gene and this dna heals itself.
whatever this gene codes for, a disease, a condition in theory, maybe even other things like hair color, is now gone. >> what are the possible benefits of this usage? >> well, the excitement about this, robin, is that it can be used to treatment deadly diseases that are inherited so it's being studied for cystic fibrosis, even for cataracts. the question here is whether you can use it for other things and what those things will be. it's actually being studied intensively for use in food and agriculture to make certain products less susceptible to viruses and that kind of thing. >> so, let's talk about the risks and the ethical debate. >> the risks, when you talk about this, you have to understand this is not perfect. there can be inaccuracy. it can miss the target. if you take a gene out, future generations can be affected and then you could wind up with a situation where you have a lot of people with a disability or not a disability and is there a result in stigma? and then, if you really take this gene out on a widespread basis, will there be major
inequalities that are now more emphasized? there are a lot of risks here, and when you talk about this done for optional reasons -- i want dark eyes, i want blonde hair, then you get into a slippery slope and that's why for cosmetic reasons or nonlife threatening indications, this is not even being discussed. >> there is so much controversy surrounding this, especially about the gene research. >> exactly, and so here is historical context. in 2017 the national academy of sciences put out massive widespread recommendations for this and guidelines which there was global agreement. they said this should not be done for something that there is already a treatment for like hiv reducing risk of that. it should only be done in life or death situations and caution should be used when doing this for human embryos. they didn't give it a green light. they gave it a yellow light, and i think when you put that into context here, that's why you are seeing so much major uproar.
i have a quote for you, robin, because this is coming from all over the world including researchers and scientists in china. one professor from london is quoted as saying, this report of genome editing human embryos for hiv is premature, dangerous and irresponsible. we have not heard the end of this story. it is going to cause massive uproar in the scientific and medical community. >> thank you. thank you for that. >> you bet. >> appreciate it. let's go to rob. >> we have been talking about this winter storm and blizzard here in november. i know it's tough to embrace it this early but just take a cue from our boy archer here. our "gma" moment out of st. louis. this is an earlier snow flurry or two in the middle of november. he said, yeah, i'll try to catch these with my tongue and i'm just going to run around like a mad dog in the lawn because we love snow. dogs love snow, and i think people should -- yeah, get up there, archer. now there's a coding gene even more exciting. cover up that grass soon and you'll be rolling up your own snowman. hope you stay safe

of fun, but, you know, he would give the microphone to the audience to sing a lot so we joked with him and started calling him the rambler instead of the gambler because he would talk a lot in between. i don't know, george. what do you do? no. what do you do? you set the stage for the christmas half of the show. so he would sing all his great standards, you know, and then it would be time to put the christmas trees and everything, and we were doing the stuff as elves and they kept adding stuff for the elves to do, like, setting the lights up and then, like, the cords and we were, like, you know, we're not really elves. we're human beings dressed as elves. >> do you bring that same enthusiasm home for the holidays when you do -- >> sure, if there is enough alcohol, yeah. no. yeah, no. i take my husband, scott, and he is right there in the front row. >> hello, scott. [ applause ] >> he is not allowed to speak or
look up here. no. we have a great time at the holidays. we started our own tradition and we have a big brunch on christmas day and it's really fun. exactly what i wanted. >> tell us about "plum." >> it's a book that i wrote, and it's how the sugar plum fairy got her wings. what we have in common is a creati creativeness, a love for music. he does the music for "will & grace," and cnn and all those things. when i was a kid, i used to listen to "the nutcracker" on a record over and over, and that was a vinyl thing. i knew every song in the ballet, and i was obsessed with it, and he was too, and i was, like, this is an insane story. so trippy like there is a mouse king. so we thought, let's do an origin story for all the
characters, but we started with plum because that's the most popular one. [ applause ] >> what is it like working together on a project like this? >> it was great. >> that's exactly right. we have a good time. >> we're both creative types and we have our opinions, but i think we find respectful ground and we come to something that hopefully is a good end product. >> i say you have to fall in respect with somebody, not in love. if you fall in respect with them, everything else will fall in place. >> a little wisdom for today. >> yeah. >> fall in respect. i like that. >> that's interesting. you wrote it in spanish. >> so anything like that? >> well, there is always a little bit of probably an actor who does a character. there is parts to of him that are in it, and sean's humor and so forth is rampant inside of jack mcfarland. that's what comes home is a lot of just the fun and humor, but
certainly not nearly the antics. >> oh. that would be such fun. >> it comes out in our videos i think. >> yeah. >> we understand you do other projects today. tell us about this lip syncing business that is happening. >> when we had down time, scott said, do you want to make a video, like, a -- i was, like, what kind of video? he was, like, a lip sync video, and there is one. we literally -- that was our first one. that was the first one we did, and it was just, like, i took the dogs for a walk around the block and i men reimorized that part by iggy azalea, and i figured for us and a couple of friends and, like, 40 million people, and it was nuts. we were onto something so, we made tons of them. >> one of them is barbara streisand's rendition of "jingle bel bells." why that one? >> it's one of the funniest
sopgs in the world because she since it like she is on cocaine, right? sorry, no. and so -- and so -- look. that's the background of universal. we totally crashed it. but anyway. we don't have the rights. we don't have the rights for you guys. >> darn it. >> i found that out before the show. you can pay for it, but we couldn't obviously make, like, a family-friendly video. >> this just in. we paid for it. [ applause ] >> did we pay for it? we're cheap. did we pay for it? >> i guess i don't get paid today then. >> yeah. ♪ oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse sleigh ♪ ♪ jingle jingle bells oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh ♪ ♪ [ cheers and applause ]

this weather report is sponsored by blue buffalo. >> right there, rob. thank you. thank you, thank you, thank you. i am here and i just told this man backstage how proud i am of him. he is talented. he is brian tyree henry. we love him on the hit show, "atlanta." >> thank you. >> he was nominated for both a tony and an emmy this year, and now oscar buzz. how are you? >> i'm still kind of in shock that i'm sitting in front of you. you are one of my -- >> oh, bless your heart. >> i'm incredibly honored to sit here with you. you have no idea how much i adore you and love you and thank
you very much. >> you're very welcome. [ applause ] >> trying not to cry. i'm trying to hold it together. but thank you. thank you. >> as i said, extremely, extremely proud of you and how you carry yourself. the work that you are doing, but first since we're in the holiday spirit and we had sean and scott, you know, doing their thing -- >> oh my goodness. >> we're going to call it a monday memory. you as a child. >> oh my gosh. >> in your christmas sweater. come on. are you going to rock that again? >> yes. no. what's really sad is i still make that face right now, like, i wasn't having it then and i'm not having it now. >> same thing. >> i actually ordered this one piece, like, i got this polyester jump suit that's all christmas inspired because i like to spend it with my sisters being as obnoxious as possible so i tried to wear the most obnoxious clothes for christmas and they have no idea what i have in store. >> they're equally proud of you. the tony, the emmy nomination,
and what i really respect is that, you know, when people try to say, this is your moment. you're, like, no, no, no. it's a movement. >> it brings a little -- gives little bit because i don't want it to be a moment. it's gone in a flash and it's, like, a whisper in time and i would like to solidify myself in this industry as somebody who has longevity and will continue to do the characters and the work that matters to them and continue to reach far and wide. >> well, this movie is an indication of that. >> thank you. [ applause ] >> of course, we know you from "moonlight." what was it like working with this extraordinary writer/director? >> on top of the writers, i'm still pinching myself a little bit 37 he is one of the most prolific writers and directors and human beings i have ever met, and this story is so important and nuanced and just
necessary. he just is one of the best people to work with. he was really great in his direction, his relationship to the characters. it filmed literally a few blocks from my home. i live in harlem and we were right around the corner from my house which i was, like, yes. >> short commute. >> short commute, but it was -- it's -- there was nothing like seeing a love story on screen, but for this especially, there was nothing like seeing a black love story on screen. i don't think we realize how rare it is to see that, and to see it in that time and era that we set it in, in the '60s, late '50s, but these characters are so rich and amazing and barry is unlike anything, and the fact i got to work with this man is still, like, it's still -- >> let's play a little bit "if beale street could talk." >> i'm lucky i have got two years because when you are in there, they can do with you
whatever they want. you hear me? whatever they want. >> it is powerful, it is meaningful. these stories need to be told. >> yes, i agree. >> i am so glad that you are apart of something like this and telling the story. this is a depth to you. >> i have got more, robin. >> you have got more? >> i have got more. >> we have to have you back, when we have more time.

openness to creativity. >> reporter: so many of corey's students are participants in the david matthews composition school, with a mission of sharing the gift of music. >> you have people that grow up in orchestras. they are classically trained and then you have guys like myself. we learned to play by ear. this program is unique because it brings two different worlds together that normally don't come together. >> i don't think i have ever heard of the word viola. i was teaching everything to myself. when i got to this program, my whole world just opened up. ♪ >> reporter: the ultimate goal, the teens work to compose a score performed by the erie phil harmonic. >> watching them perform something that me and the other students created, it was life-changing. >> reporter: it's just one of the many programs making an impact in the community here and
