flight minutes before takeoff, now facing murder charges for three people. abc news exclusive, the first look inside notre dame cathedral nearly a month after that devastating fire, and david muir is here with the stunning images first on "gma." one-on-one with howard stern like you've never seen him before. what he's revealing about his relationship with donald trump. >> do you feel in some way you helped make him president? >> what he wishes he could ask hillary clinton. plus the one interview he regrets the most and the health scare that changed everything. >> i was freaking out. i go, this can't be. >> only on "gma" this morning. ♪ jump around the incredible buzzer beater. the four nail-biting bounces, the raptors putting away the sixers and now the showdown cooking between steph curry and his brother seth. ♪ everybody jump
7:02 am
bouncers, bounces. there were four of them. >> whatever it takes. >> good morning, america. great to have you with us on this monday morning. what a finish in that sixers game. the raptors with the win. >> and i couldn't believe -- it is the first time ever, game seven has been won by a buzzer beater. >> i'm surprised. >> first time it's ever happened but a great game and i can't wait. i tell you, george, i cannot wait for your interview with howard stern. >> it was so much fun. we sat down and had a long, long conversation. he has a brand-new book. it's called "howard stern comes again." we had a little bet. he thought i wouldn't say that on the air. it is howard stern. he turned the tables on me a couple of times. the book is fantastic and i think it will surprise a lot of people. we'll have a that later, but first, we begin with that attack overseas on saudi ships and oil tankers. one about to head to the u.s.
7:03 am
this comes in the wake of that warning about threats from iran. our chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz starts us off with the very latest. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this comes at an extremely tense time in the region with the u.s. warning that just days ago that iran or its proxies could be targeting maritime traffic in the oil rich persian gulf region. although we do not know who carried out this morning's attack on these ships, we know four ships were sabotaged off the coast of the united arab emirates in the persian gulf and it caused significant structural damage to two saudi oil tankers. one of the saudi ships was on its way to pick up saudi oil for delivery to the u.s. last week the u.s. urgently dispatched a carrier strike group, b-52 bombers and patriot missile battery to the region after it said there were unspecified threats to american forces in the region. iran's news agency this morning saying the dispatch of the warships was to exaggerate the
7:04 am
shadow of war and frighten the iranian people, but this is a very dangerous development. michael? >> all right, thank you, martha. increased tensions there. now we go to here at home to that nor'easter moving in on the heels of that severe weather in the south. more than a foot of rain in some areas leading to water rescues. ginger is here with the very latest. good morning, ginger. >> reporter: michael, it was a cold drenching mother's day here in the northeast. but you go to the deep south, it was downright dangerous and that's where states of emergency are in place right now. dozens of rivers under flood warning. >> look at that. >> reporter: at least two reported tornadoes. and torrential rain made for a super soaker of a mother's day weekend. poplarville, mississippi just one of the towns swallowed by water. >> it's just amazing what water can do. the damage is insane. >> reporter: up to 15 inches of rain fell in southern misleading to a flash flood emergency. >> lost everything. >> reporter: first responders in
7:05 am
harrison county using boats to search for those stranded. a man comforting his young daughter. this woman carried to safety. huge sections of this road collapsing from so much saturation cutting off exit routes. more than two dozen train cars in hillsboro, mississippi crashing after the tracks were washed out. miraculously no one injured there. in alabama winds topping 60 miles per hour tearing through this parking lot. louisiana declaring a state of emergency. in new orleans, the streets overflowing. and that likely tornado near lynchburg, virginia. so watch this low pressure system as it rides up the coast. we'll see more rain here in new york city up to connecticut. we have coastal flood advisories up because the winds will start pushing the water right up along the coast and squeezed together with that other low means more heavy rain and even, yes, some mountain snow. that's how cold and wet this is. it'll eventually all dry out by
7:06 am
the midweek but ugly up until then. george? >> we can feel it this morning. okay, thank you, ginger. we go to the white house now and president trump's escalating trade war with china. financial markets on edge this morning after the president imposes new tariffs, threatens more with both sides far from a possible deal. our senior national correspondent terry moran is tracking it all. terry, after the president imposed those tariffs, some candid concessions from his top economic adviser. >> reporter: that's right. donald trump's top economic adviser larry kudlow is contradicting the president. donald trump once said trade wars are easy to win and claims china is the only one paying in this one, but kudlow saying yesterday that the american consumers now caught in the crossfire. prices on consumer goods like televisions and cars and even some food items, beauty products, they're going to go up and the president says it's all worth it. he like other presidents has been targeting china's unfair trade practices. he's using the tariffs but he wants to tell people there's no pain. he's wrong. there will be. >> there will be pain. meantime, terry, he's up and he's tweeting about it again
7:07 am
this morning and it's unclear when and whether these new negotiations will take place, whether they can be successful. >> reporter: that's right. these two sides, china and the united states, the two largest economies at loggerheads. they were close to a deal, but that's fallen apart. they're scheduled to talk next month but this is a long way from being done. >> terry, on another front also a great deal of uncertainty now about whether the special counsel robert mueller is going to testify to congress. it was first scheduled or at least asked for this week. >> reporter: that's probably not going to happen, george. even democrats on the house judiciary committee who want to hear from robert mueller acknowledge that he's probably not going to show up. the attorney general has said he's got no problem -- bill barr says he's got no problem with robert mueller showing up and testifying before congress. donald trump who is the boss ultimately may have other ideas. george? >> he certainly does. so a lot of uncertainty there. terry, thanks very much. now to that dramatic hostage rescue and the mystery of the american woman who was saved. u.s. officials say they weren't
7:08 am
aware she was kidnapped along with three others held in burkina faso. james longman has the latest. good morning, james. >> reporter: good morning, michael. yeah, we're learning more about that american woman who was among four hostages freed after a daring rescue operation in west africa. the raid which was conducted by 20 members of france's special forces saved two french nationals, one south korean and the american whose identity is still publicly unknown. sources say, though, she's in her 60s and a private citizen not working for any u.s. government agency but was held captive for 28 days. american officials confirm that no one was aware until the rescue that she was even among those hostages. abc news has learned she is being debriefed by u.s. authorities. they want to uncover how she became a hostage and why no one knew about it. two french special forces soldiers were killed in the raid, which left the four kidnappers dead. the group was saved just in time as it was feared their kidnappers were planning to hand
7:09 am
them over to an islamist group over in mali. george? >> james longman, thank you very much. now to new developments in the college admissions cheating scandal. felicity huffman is headed to a boston courtroom this afternoon to file a guilty plea for paying $15,000 to boost h daughter's s.a.t. scores. abc's linsey davis is at the courthouse with the latest. good morning to you, linsey. >> reporter: good morning to you, michael. of course, it's the day after mother's day and here we are talking about a mother who was willing to go to extraordinary lengths, even illegal measures to help her child succeed. as you mentioned, actress felicity huffman will appear inside this boston courtroom. this afternoon, once again, this time to enter a plea of guilty. the "desperate housewives" star is 1 of 33 stars caught up in the scandal. she signed a plea deal back in april admitting to paying $15,000 to have an s.a.t. proctor correct the answers on her daughter's exam improving her score by 400 points. huffman later expressed deep regret and shame.
7:10 am
she said, my daughter knew nothing about any actions. my desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty. the investigation is continuing. prosecutors are suggesting they still may charge more parents, coaches and even potentially students, michael. >> huffman is expected to get four to ten months behind bars. >> reporter: yeah, that's most likely along with a $20,000 fine but it is in the realm of possibilities that the judge could just give her probation and then she would have no prison time at all but that's just a possibility, michael. >> all right, thank you so much, linsey. a lot of eyes on this case. >> yes, indeedy. we have breaking news. let's go amy robach. >> we have breaking news for our viewers in the west. doris day has died at 90 years old. her smile and sweet voice lighting up the screen in the 1950s and '60s. her work with the animal foundation helping so many, and her presence already missed.
7:11 am
♪ once i had a secret love >> reporter: she was measurinam sweetheart in the 1950s with her bubbly personality. >> arrest this man. he's taking me to his apartment. >> reporter: this was her favorite role, in "love me or leave me." >> and you'll never see me again. >> why? >> that makes me a tramp and i'm not a tramp no matter what you think. >> reporter: and she was fierce in "calamity jane." her voice soothed souls and won awards. ♪ ♪ whatever will be will be >> reporter: that became her signature song. it was also her theme for life. >> i say it all the time because it's really what life is, suspect it? >> reporter: years later when she was honored for her work on screen, she told the audience,

it's been a wonderful life. >> that's all i wanted to know. >> according to the a.p., she died after contracting a serious case of pneumonia. her last moments were spent surrounded by close friends and loved ones. robin? now to an abc news exclusive. the first american anchor allowed inside notre dame cathedral nearly a month after that disastrous fire shocked the world. "world news tonight" anchor david muir is just back from paris, extraordinary reporting. >> wow, robin, george, michael, great to be with you. it was haunting, but it was equal parts hopeful when you get inside that cathedral and you're about to see why. the first chance for anyone so see what's left, the spire still sitting in the middle of the cathedral. the organ didn't survive, and to see it up close in this monumental effort to bring notre

dame back. here's what we found. take a look. >> reporter: it was nearly one month ago the flames leaping from notre dame cathedral. the spire engulfed and then the moment it came down. the spire collapsed along with the hearts of the people of paris and the world. we traveled to paris to see what remains. we pull up to the flashing lights. there are still police keeping everyone away. but we have been invited by the retired general put in charge by the french president to rebuild notre dame. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: this is the first time he has invited anyone in. you have been tasked with some would say the impossible. >> nothing is impossible to a french general. >> reporter: the workers here wear protective suits and masks. 400 tons of lead were lost in that fire. he takes us in. >> this is the wood of the top part of the spire. >> this is the top of the spire right here. >> yes. >> reporter: right beside us, the spire, the world watched it pierce that roof. >> that was the moment the world
7:14 am
gasped in horror. >> yes, that was the moment. when everybody, people, ah. >> reporter: we stand in the shadow of one of the giant holes in the cathedral's roof. the rain coming right through. this is just remarkable that this was saved. the giant rose windows survived, 42 feet across. and there was another question so many asked, what about the organ? through this small doorway we climb the stairs to the upper level of the cathedral. wow. much of it untouched. >> this is it. it survived. the gray organ, 8,000 pipes, it's believed a small number of them even date back to the 13th century. they're going to be examining each of the pipes of this great organ to make sure that they haven't been permanently damaged but just to give you an idea, you can't help but notice the ash and likely lead in here as well that remains. the soot all over the cathedral.
7:15 am
part of the restoration that lies ahead. and back down stairs we go in search for that early symbol of hope. wow. we now stand at the front of the cathedral. general, this is the cross that the world saw. >> yes, the entire cross of god shining despite the fire. >> there was so much hope that next morning when people saw the cross, the smoke still rising in the cathedral, but that it was still intact. >> they see the cross. >> still intact. the cross still standing there. the organ with the sheet music from holy week still sitting on it, the last time it was played. and there was something else there that has so many people talking, the statue of the virgin mary once sat atop the pillar at the altar at the front of the church. they took me to see the virgin mary. as we were looking at the statue, they told me there is something happening here in this moment that hasn't happened since the 14th century. it took our breath away and
7:16 am
we'll explain what that was all about. >> you can't do that. >> oh! >> we're sitting here like this. >> he's got a show tonight, come on. >> listen, i'll tell you this, it's been atop that pillar for 14 centuries. nobody has been able to look at it at eye level. we'll take you through that moment. >> dude, that's a tease. that is a tease. >> it's going to feel like 14 centuries waiting for that. >> 6:30. >> 6:30. exclusive report inside notre dame on "world news tonight." thanks for coming in this morning.

"howard stern comes again." he's trying to answer questions about his most memorable moments and personal journey on air. we have to talk about donald trump. he is a big character in the book because -- >> big character on my show. >> that's what i was going to say. you say one of your best guests ever. >> donald trump hands down whenever you put him on the air, now this, is before he was running for president, he was an open book. he would say anything. and, you know, oddly enough during the campaign and even now people quote these interviews that i did. >> big time. >> big time. i was quite surprised when they dragged out every single donald trump interview i had done and
7:33 am
in some ways i felt it was unfair to trump because, like, for example, they were fond of quoting that donald trump had something -- said something to the effect that stds were his personal vietnam. but really it was in a very joking scenario. he was not comparing his life to a vietnam vet. it was ha, ha, ha and this and that, but when journalists took it was a little unfair.i thought having said that, though, donald trump would come on my show and this is why he was great there was no filter, i'd go, donald, angelina jolie, one of the most beautiful actresses -- ah, she's a 6, you know. now, who says that? you know? most people if they're having that thought keep that pretty guarded. not donald. he was right into it. ivanka trump. >> you know who's one of the great beauties of the world according to everybody, and i helped create her?
7:34 am
>> who? >> ivanka. >> most beautiful girl in the world. i would marry her. these types of things, certainly politicians don't say. >> did you feel in some way you helped make him president? >> absolutely. because donald would come on my show. i mean, look -- >> does it make you feel bad or good? >> well, look, i did not vote for donald trump. i go into great lengths in this book and i think people will be interested in this. hillary clinton, you know, like in "moby dick" i was chasing her. she was my obsession. i wanted to see hillary clinton win, and i thought if she had come on the show -- the way i helped donald was i let him come on and be a personality. whether you liked him or not, people related to him as a human being. i wanted to do that for hillary. the big knock against hillary, especially with some of the male audience was, eh, we don't le her. >> you could feel that on the air. >> i absolutely could feel it on the air. >> all during that time you do write about this, you're trying
7:35 am
to get hillary clinton on your show as you said, she's afraid of you. >> hillary clinton is afraid of me and justifiably. look, she's got a big campaign. she doesn't know about i'm in therapy and doesn't know that what i really wanted to do -- i didn't want to ask her about her sex life. i didn't want to ask her about bill clinton and his affairs. the woman has devoted her life to public service. why? what is it about public service? what is it that drives her? what was it like when she saw her -- when her husband became president. was there envy there? what was her climb? i thought that perhaps if she came on my show, we could have stripped away some of e pomp and circumstance or the tightness that comes with running for president and like donald she could have been seen in a different light. >> you believe if she had done that she'd be president? >> that's an arrogant statement and, you know, to sit here and
7:36 am
cavalierly say, yeah, she would have been president. no, but look at the electoral college and look at that. it came down to a couple of states and it was -- >> 70,000 votes. >> 70,000 votes. on sirius xm we have 33 million subscribers and we calculate that at a minimum per subscription there are two people listening per family. let's say there's 66 million people, they tell me 60% of sirius' audience listening to me. out of that audience if hillary had come on in the same way that lady gaga came on or gwyneth paltrow or rosie o'donnell and guys call me afterward, man, i never liked lady gaga. but i just heard her talking, i'm going to her concert. these are hard-core dudes who don't get sometimes -- they're too caught up in she is a woman or i look like a wuss if i'm listening to this. if hillary could have come in and maybe persuaded 70,000 people out of those millions of
7:37 am
people that listened and come off in such a way, maybe we would be looking at a different scenario. >> reporter: now stern and trump not as close as they used to be. >> the turning point in my relationship with donald was he did ask me to speak at the convention. and i had to say no. and -- >> were you tempted at all? >> well, since i was a hillary supporter, for a minute i thought, well, i'll go up and endorse hillary, which would have been a great moment. >> you wish you would have done that now? >> no, i wouldn't do that to donald. you know, it's a weird relationship. donald was at my wedding. i remember having very warm feelings for donald and i do. i mean, he was always very nice to me. i have had dinner at mar-a-lago many times, and that's why i couldn't even believe donald wanted this all to work out for him. if you go to mar-a-lago, it's like a piece of heaven. it's a beautiful place. and i'd go there to eat dinner with my wife. and by the way i was never
7:38 am
comped. i paid. so we weren't that good of friends and i remember thinking why would a guy want to leave this? he plays golf every day. >> you don't want him to be president but you can't help like him? >> well, i have a real problem as you can tell, if i was a hillary clinton supporter you can tell i have a real problem with what's going on so i'm very conflicted now. the guy i knew doesn't -- i didn't know this was him. i don't believe his stance on abortion, for example. the donald i know i think he'd probably get a few people abortions. i don't know what he's doing. the stance, the women don't have a right to choose what -- you don't have to get an abortion. but if you want the right -- i remember the days of women in the back alleys with coat hangers, that's not acceptable and you know who used to be able to get abortions? rich people. they could get them, and so, you know, let's face it. it is really unthinkable to me about what's going on in the country right now. >> howard doesn't like to think

about his previous books either. the new one inspired by a health scare he kept secret from his listeners. >> i had been diagnosed with kidney cancer and i had to go in for surgery and i was freaking out. i go, this can't be and they had told me it was 95% chance it was cancer. it turned out not to be cancer. it was a miracle. >> when it passes did you have that winston churchill feeling of nothing being more exhilarated than being shot at and missed? >> well, that's why i think i also wrote this book. all of a sudden it brought me to some kind of reality, you're not going to live forever and what am i most proud of? what do i want my children to see? what do i -- and these interviews and what i've written here represents to me the best of me. >> the best but he does not shy away from the worst of himself either. like i said, he talked about his past books and said he can't even look at them anymore, and he also opens up about what he considered his worst interview ever and that is revealing as well. we'll talk about that in our

7:41 am
and how many patients saw clear or almost clear skin in just 4 months - the kind of clearance that can last. humira targets and blocks a specific source of inflammation that contributes to symptoms. numbers are great. and seeing clearer skin is pretty awesome, too. that's what i call a body of proof. humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections, including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. want more proof? ask your dermatologist about humira. this is my body of proof. summer is heating up at pier 1.
