7:03 am
conservative moments. >> i will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose. >> i want universal coverage. i want everyone in massachusetts and this country to have insurance. >> reporter: trump tweeting that romney's upcoming news conference is just another desperate move by the man who should have easily beaten barack obama. marco rubio tells me the battle are to the conservative movement is while he's still fighting after winning only one state out of 15. >> i am willing to fight as long as it takes to ensure that we save the conservative movement in the republican party from a con artist like donald trump. >> reporter: senator cruz saying right now there are too many candidates to beat trump. >> 23 we are going to beat donald trump, the field can't remain fractured. >> reporter: the field is narrowing. dr. ben carson essentially ending his campaign on wednesday announcing there's no political path forward. and as frump raquets up victories, confidence is spreading through the trump family. melania trump when asked making her case for first lady.
7:04 am
lady, do you think? >> yes, of course. >> why? >> i -- i'm a perfectionist. i like to do things perfect and i like to put myself 100% into it, into what i do. >> reporter: now back to those establishment attacks on donald trump, this morning there is also this letter signed by more than 50 gop national security experts, all making the same point that donald trump will not keep us safe. it is a point that mitt romney makes in his speech and, george, mitt romney also says donald trump will lead this country right into an economic recession. george. >> okay, tom, thanks. let's hear what donald trump has to say about it right now. mr. trump, thank you for joining us again this morning. i want to put up that excerpt up on the screen right now. he says, here's what i know, donald trump is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as a degree from trump university. for suckers. he gets a free ride to the white hat. your response?
7:05 am
failed candidate, should have beaten barack obama easily. i've brought millions and millions of people and you know this, george, because i saw your report on it into the republican party over the last very short period of time. it's the biggest story in politic, how many people are flocking into the republican party. they're leaving the democrats, they're leaving the independents, they're no longer independent. they're now going as republicans and they're with me 100%. i have rallies the other day in alabama, we had 35,000 people. 35,000, the biggest one of the season by anybody by far. we're having the biggest rallies. we get 20,000 and 15,000 routinely and there's great enthusiasm -- >> how about -- >> except by the establishment. >> how about the substance. he brings up trump university. you're facing ads in several states, several million dollars in ads where victims say they were scammed out of thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars. that's hitting you hard right in the middle of the campaign. >> george, it's a simple civil case.
7:06 am
probably still could very, very easily but i don't want to settle it because, look, the people that took the course, 98% of those people liked the school. we have report cards. every single person that is in a civil case -- >> that was before they took the courses. >> excuse me. every single person that has taken it practically, almost all, 98%, loved it. we have an "a" from the better business bureau. we got rated "a." it's a legal deal for lawyers to make -- >> sir, according to "the new york daily news" you got a "d" minus from the better business bureau. >> take a look at it. you're wrong. >> i have it. >> it's posted as an "a" and i think they gave us a different mark before we gave them information. after they got the information they gave us an "a" so we have an "a." who is going to settle a lawsuit when everybody is suing. these are just people saying, oh, wow, if i can get my money back. i'm sued all the time and so is every other big business person.
7:07 am
they say if you're successful you can't run for political office because everything you do you get sued on and it gets exposed. we will win that case very easily. i just don't want to settle. >> how about the foreign policy attacks from these 50 foreign policy experts? they say your advocacy for trade wars is a recipe for economic disaster in a globally connected war. his embrace of the expansive use of torture is inexcusable. it is said the military will refuse to act if you order torture because they're not required to follow orders that violate international law. how would president trump respond if the military refused to follow your orders? >> i'll tell you how good our military is doing under michael hayden and people such as this. we've been fighting wars in the middle east for 15 years, 18 years, we're in debt $4 trillion or $5 trillion. we are arming enemies -- arming people that we want on our side.
7:08 am
when they take over a country they're worse than the people they depose. give me a break and as far as the economics are concerned we're going to lose $500 billion this year with china. we're losing with japan. we're losing with mexico. at the border and at trade. don't tell me about these people that sit around. the american worker is making less money now than they made 12 years ago, george. and that's why they're banking on me. but now they're spending the establishment is spending $100 million on phony ads against me and who knows what that does. >> but the question -- >> but i will tell you this, the republicans, it's dynamic what's happening. millions of people are joining the republican party because of me. and you know what, the rerepublican establishment will probably give it right back and go back to the ole days of mitt romney that couldn't win. >> back to the question, if you order torture and the military refuses to carry out your
7:09 am
>> i don't think that would happen. i'm a leader. i don't think that would happen. they're cutting off heads in the middle east. they're chopping off people's heads in the middle east and we're afraid to waterboard. give me a break, george. general douglas macarthur and general patton are in their graves right now spinning in their graves, they don't believe what they're seeing. we don't know how to win anymore. we can't win a war. we can't win economically and this is why this is happening. remember, we're losing $500 billion in terms of trade deficit with china. we have to change things around. we can't go on like this, george. >> ready for megyn kelly tonight? >> i'm ready. i'm absolutely ready. >> mr. trump, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. >> we invited marco rubio and ted cruz on this morning. they both declined. >> now to the democratic race, hillary clinton celebrating her super tuesday victories at a star-studded bash overnight as there's breaking news in her e-mail scandal. abc's cecilia vega is here with the latest on that, good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning to you.
7:10 am
morning that the fbi could seek to question hillary clinton herself in the coming weeks and the justice department has reportedly granted immunity to an aide who worked on her private e-mail server. this as clinton moves closer to securing this nomination. overnight in full celebration mode at a star-studded radio city music hall fund-raiser. you're going to hear me roar >> reporter: a hollywood who's who of supporters there for the ballerina >> reporter: from elton john. >> this is a very important year for america and she's the only hope you have. >> reporter: to katy perry. >> the election feels very personal to me. >> reporter: julianne moore and jamie foxx. >> hillary. >> reporter: and the entire clinton family but the clintons are not the only ones packing in the crowds. >> thank you, bernie. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: bernie sanders now
7:11 am
rival's delegate lead but he is still drawing big support from maine to michigan. >> a great nation is judged not by how many millionaires and billionaires it has, but by how it treats the weakest and most vulnerable amongst us. >> reporter: this crowd overnight reaching 10,000 strong and while clinton still has the vermont senator to contend with, she now seems laser focused on a different man standing in her way. >> so, we've got work to do, my friends. but not to make america great again, america never stopped being great. [ cheers and applause ] >> we have to make america whole. >> reporter: now, on those e-mails clinton's aides insist this is not cause for concern. they say the possibility of an fbi interview is a sign the investigation could be concluded soon. guys, still, this is not the headline this team wants to deal
7:12 am
>> especially at this point right now. all right, cecilia, thank you. joining us from washington abc's jon karl picking up on what cecilia was talking about with the e-mail controversy. in your opinion what does this mean for her campaign, hillary clinton? >> this is the cloud that just won't go away. the latest reports are an indication this remains very much an active fbi investigation and although there's absolutely no indication that clinton herself is a target, it is very likely that she will be asked to testify or at least come in and take questions from the fbi in the coming weeks. now, the campaign says she is happy to do that but trust me, that is not the way a candidate working to wrap up her party's nomination and as cecilia said take her campaign national wants to be spending her time. >> not at all. let's talk about the gop big debate tonight on fox. you heard that donald trump just talking with george, what do the other candidates have to did to tonight? >> reporter: well, trump's rivals are almost out of time and this debate is one last
7:13 am
to take him down. there will be only four candidates on the stage, that means more time to put trump on the spot and he will be facing as you pointed out not just the rivals, but also megyn kelly who has shown maybe more than just about anybody that she can really get under trump's skin. >> we'll see what happens tonight, jon. thank you. a massive manhunt for a band of robbers. they captured three of the suspects seen in this video. it shows ten thieves swarming a gun shop making off with dozens of guns. abc's phillip mena has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, after a two-day manhunt, police say they have captured three of these ten brazen gun store bandits who were caught on five different security cameras raiding a houston shop in this newly released surveillance video. watch as the hooded and masked suspects use a chain attached to a pickup truck to rip the steel clad front door right off its hinges.
7:14 am
premises using hammers to smash the display cases snatching dozens of weapons. this thief jumping over a counter to rip an assault rifle off a wall display and this hooded burglar bagging at least 18 handguns in just 30 seconds. >> what it potentially means you have that many people now distributing fireairports on the streets of houston. >> reporter: the crooks making several trips back to their escape vehicles to unload the loot. one suspect nearly falling as he races back into the store. others dropping a few guns as they rush to escape before police arrive. police say it took the thieves less than two minutes to get away with more than 50 weapons while authorities say some of these stolen guns have just been recovered, they're still concerned over the possible crimes that might be committed with the stolen guns still at large. >> you got another criminal element that needs firearms to commit their crimes, sometimes associated with the drug trade or robberies. >> reporter: police say the
7:15 am
vehicles about a block away. this morning authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to their arrests. george, robin. >> that is alarming video. >> it really is. now to a caught on camera encounter between an officer and teen triggering outrage at a baltimore public school. this morning the footage shows the officer slapping and kicking a student, abc's mary bruce has the details and joins us from baltimore. good morning, mary. >> reporter: hi, robin. good morning. what happened here is hard to watch. the video is just a few seconds long but it has already sparked what the school system is calling a vigorous investigation. this morning, baltimore prosecutors launching a criminal investigation into this brutal attack caught on tape. the video just four seconds long going viral. watch as an armed school police officer at baltimore's reach partnership school slaps this 16-year-old boy three times before kicking him. look closely, a second officer standing next to him doesn't
7:16 am
the video sending shock waves through the community. >> as a parent of a baltimore city school student, i was appalled by what i saw, that behavior that was demonstrated on the -- the video is certainly something you never want to see. >> reporter: this morning school officials telling abc news the two officers have been placed on administrative leave. >> this incident is not indicative. this is unacceptable. it's not behavior that will ever be tolerated by any city school employee but this is an isolated incident. >> reporter: words of little comfort for this teen whose lawyer says suffered injuries to his rib and face. his family asking to keep his identity private. >> this isn't the wild, wild west. even if, in fact, that client had done something to provoke the incident it's not an eye for an eye. that's not how police are trained. >> reporter: now his lawyer says
7:17 am
officials say he is not and that his presence here on these grounds is now under investigation. george and robin. >> wow. there. >> that's true. >> very unfortunate. >> a higher note. >> a little better feel-good story from tiger woods who was in texas yesterday for the opening of hi a new golf course he designed but i bet you he didn't see this coming. walking to the green, 11-year-old junior player crozier hit the first shot an a par 3. his it, it trickles down, gets a hole in one -- >> the first shot. >> tiger steps up and says, now i have to follow that? are you kidding me right now? but it was such a good thing. tiger later on signed the score card and the card shows that taylor and his friend beat tiger by three strokes. >> a hole in one. >> taylor has the chance to play with tiger because he had
7:18 am
this is a pretty good excuse to skip a day when he goes back, everybody knows why. >> a sweet swing. >> sweet swing. he could beat me a you george, we've played together. >> he sure does. thank you, michael. on to rob. you have this winter storm moving east. >> not a great day to be playing golf. you made it way too easy. he'll have to buy everybody a round of milk. generally speaking 1 to 3 inches but a winter storm watch posted for richmond where we see the heaviest snow. tomorrow from d.c. to new york just enough to make for a bit of a messy commute and boston, here you go, widespread 1 to 3

7:32 am
headed into the ring but into a courtroom. the wchl we star suing the gossip site for $100 million for posting a video of him having sex with heather clem, the then wife of his former best friend. florida radio deejay bubba the love sponge. >> this was an incredible. it was taken without his knowledge and/or consent. >> reporter: now hogan tweeting before court tuesday, "time for the real main event. i am going to slam another giant." but gawker arguing the tape and hogan's affair were newsworthy. >> months before gawker in the news. >> reporter: the company telling abc news, "we are defending the fight amendment against hulk hogan's effort to create a world where celebrities can promote themselves around any topic, in
7:33 am
the media covers their lives. hulk hogan bragged about his sex life for years and denied this particular sexual encounter." hogan maintains the leaked tape has damaged both his personal and professional life. he was wiped from the wwe hall of fame in july after the national enquirer released a previously unheard audiotape from the sex tape. hogan heard making racial slurs. >> can we stop for a second? >> reporter: telling amy robach rock bottom. >> i was at the lowest point of my life to the point where i wanted to kill myself. >> you were suicidal. >> yes, i was. >> reporter: opening arguments are set to begin monday and the trial is expected to take three weeks, hogan is expected to take the witness stand. robin. >> linzie, thank you. we bring in abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams for this. a high-profile case like this seating a jury, how difficult is that? what are both sides looking for.
7:34 am
find a jury pretty easily. there's been a lot higher profile cases where they have. but it is critical. why? they're not fighting over the facts, they kind of agree as to what happened. it's a question of how do you interpret the law and so which jurors you get and what mind-set they come in with is absolutely critical. so hogan's team will want people simply offended that gawker published this at all while gawker's team will want people more willing to focus on sort of constitutional principles but it will be an interesting case to be a juror on because to one was killed here. you got some sort of obnoxious high-profile person against an obnoxious high-profile media entity, kind of a fun case to preside over. >> that's one way of looking at it. >> yeah. >> gawker's stance is that first amendment. >> that's right and it's hard -- some people will say, it's a sex tape. how could there be a first amendment claim? what gawker is basically saying is the minute hulk hogan starts
7:35 am
life and specifically talking about not having sex with the person he's having sex with on the tape, that that becomes newsworthy. they say, look, we only used a little over a minute of the tape. we didn't play the whole thing. we were using it just as much as was necessary to be newsworthy. >> won't it be tricky with the jury. >> absolutely. it's going to be a hard argument for a jury. it's the sort of argument better in an appel yacht late coururt. key question did they need to use the tape. it's a fascinating case. three students claimed they were attacked because of their race but now facing charges because this surveillance video tells a different story. abc's gio benitez is on the seen >> reporter: good morning. police say they've enhanced that video and talked to witnesses and now they firmly believe that
7:36 am

7:37 am
release of this surveillance video from inside the bus that night. witnesses on board telling police, it wasn't the men but the women who were the aggressors. >> it definitely looks like it wasn't what the girls said happened and looks the opposite. >> reporter: the girls maintain they are the victims. this week all three girls in court pleading not guilty to charges of third degree assault. civil rights activists now concerned about what this case crimes. >> when there's another incident or similar incident, will the community believe them and that's troubling for many people. >> reporter: and two of the girls have also been charged with falsely reporting an incident. by the way we should tell you the video does not make clear exactly what happened. a jury may have to decide. rob and george. >> thank you. coming up teacher says she was forced to resign after a student stole private photos from her phone. she's speaking out about it next.

8:14 am
>> thank you, jesse. time now to turn back time with something called the insta-lift. a new fda cleared procedure that claims to give you some of the results of a more expensive face-lift for less money and you don't have to undergo the knife. abc's deborah roberts is here with the details. good morning, deb. >> hey, robin. european women have been using it for years. just like those popular fillers, it's a quick lunchtime procedure. no surgery and those who have had it say it lasts twice as long. not much bothers phyllis cunningham except lately looking at herself in the mirror. >> i don't like the look of my face. it needs a little pumping up or pulling back or just to give me a lift. >> reporter: the new jersey grandmom is about to turn 60 and wants to look as young as she feels. but she doesn't want to have a surgical face-lift. >> if i went under the knife i'd have to go under generally anesthesia. >> reporter: so when phyllis
8:15 am
nonsurgical face-lift popular in europe was not available in the states, she scheduled an appointment with chicago based cosmetic surgeon julius fu. the insta lift is an in and out office procedure with no general anesthesia for incisions. >> so you get to see the effect right away but without the recovery time. >> reporter: we watch as dr. few numbs her face. inserting a series of tiny threaded biodegradable cones in and around her cheeks and jaw line. made of the same material as medical stitches that tightly ens the skin. are you feeling it. >> no, i'm numb. >> reporter: less than half an hour later she gets to see her new face. >> oh, my god. oh, my god. >> you already notice a difference. >> oh, yeah. it's not hanging here. >> yeah. >> reporter: here's phyllis before the procedure and after. >> just starting to show the
8:16 am
>> reporter: 57-year-old victoria was similar think thrilled with the result of her 30-minute face-lift. >> wow. to look at myself in the mirror i feel like i got ten years back. >> the insta lift has potential side effects including swelling, nerve damage and a lopsided face. the cost of the procedure about $3,000, a fraction of surgical face-lifts which can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. and dr. few says the results last about 18 months. now phyllis says she loves looking at herself in the mirror. >> i look gorgeous. and i love it. >> she's pretty happy. since we saw her about three weeks ago phyllis says her jaw line is smoother and more toned and is thrilled. it is early so we'll have to see how she progresses. remember, it's a fairly new procedure here in the states. only a hand full of doctors trained to do it. here's what the fuss is all about.
8:17 am
teeny teeny thread with little teeny bits of cones in here. they thread it under the skin. this is what the doctors say plumps up the skin and actually gives it, they say, a little bit more volume and makes it smoother. and this is what happens and it lasts and eventually breaks down because it's biodegradable. >> so it'll eventually break down. you bring in dr. jen ashton and see that. see the results. it looks very good. what is the traditional face-lift, how do you compare the two. >> surgical face-lift is the gold standard but it might not be right for every woman or man because men are undergoing both, as well. so to compare them, let's look at them, you know, on a couple of parameters head-to-head. first of all, cost as deb said, this is a fraction of the cost, but it's not cheap. this is going to vary based on location and who does it. $3,000 and potentially something you might have to repeat every 18 months you can rapidly get up
8:18 am
recovery time we heard. slim to none with this. you know, several weeks for surgery and then the time that it will last, this is not apples toales. this is apples to oranges. you know, this might be right for one person. it's all about selecting the right patient candidate. >> but isn't this fall under what is old is new again. weren't we talking about this in the '90s. >> we saw -- we did. we heard about this years ago, the threading technique. what's new here are the knots. what this is is this is called mono filament. like fishing line, the i uds are made out of this and cones or knots in this material are thought to stimulate an inflammatory response which then triggers collagen production so if you've ever had stitches or surgery where you have a scar, if you feel that scar several weeks after surgery how it feels hard, that's basically what's going on in the face. >> what are the side effects here. >> well, listen, any time you
8:19 am
you can have a small risk of infection, there are major nerves and blood vessels in the face. if you hit one of those you could have damage or bleeding. and with any cosmetic procedure you can have an unsat if i cost cosmetic response and say, not really thrilled with how it looks but most people are generally satisfy ied. if your expectations are appropriate going in >> that's the key. your expectations have to be sort of like level here when you're looking at this. >> so many people tuning in and who we do a lot of segments on you're getting older. you feel good but you want to look good. >> you want to match how you feel. >> what are some of your suggestions. >> you know, if you talk about collagen pre oduction, there are all kinds of laser treatments and techniques available which will stimulate collagen production. when you talk about aging of the skin it's superficial. it's collagen and it's about
8:20 am
it's not going to replace as much of the lost volume as things like filler does. >> it's something that's short term. some of the celebrities before the red carpet. >> yeah. >> if you have a wedding or something special that you want to do. >> that's where it's becoming popular for people who want to do that kind of thing. we'll see. very new here in the states. we'll see what happens. >> you don't need it and, robin, you looked stunning on the red carpet so you definitely don't need it. >> notice i gave you time to say that. >> thank you. >> wrapping but i was like -- let's get outside to rob. thanks. rob. >> hey, robin, nobody out here needs a face-lift. 15 degrees. random couple from houston. there you go. hang out when you get home. where it's a lot warmer, 26 is what it feels like d.c. and 19 in columbia us. 1 to 3 inches widespread and richmond south of d.c. more

8:22 am
you know, it's a very un unforgiving thing, the camera is. >> not for everybody, george. the former sexiest man alive agreeing that the problem is worse for women on camera, even though he says he is not looking forward to growing gray on the silver screen, clooney says he does plan to stay in the industry directing films, he says that is more fun and infinitely more creative. >> i hope he keeps acting. remember paul newman. he was so good. good looking younger but as he aged, he was so good. scloon is so great. >> i absolutely agree. he says as you age on screen you're looking for roles that are appropriate and those roles are less and less. he says he feels for women in the industry and it does affect men as well. >> 55 is young. >> yes, yes, it is. >> agreed, george. all right, george. >> two 55-year-olds. >> oh, i like to say perfect
8:23 am
>> you're on a roll, roberts. they say one man's trash is another man's treasure and one family has hit the garbage to gazillionaire jackport. the family was cleaning out the house and they almost threw away a brown paper bag that was strewn on the floor. thankfully they looked inside. there was a pile of postcards going through it, seven very rare ty cobb baseball cards. >> those are priceless. >> played -- exactly -- for the detroit tigers in the early 1900s. many consider him to be a better player than even babe ruth. discuss amongst yourselves, please, do not send your notes to me on that one. just last month there were thought to be only 15 ty cobb cards left in the world so to find seven in one bag according to an authenticator, his name is joe orlando in california, is truly a grand slam.

8:25 am
>> grandma, uh, they're not using great as an adjective. time to get specific, kids. >> how great could i be? >> well, it's not great like the adjective. >> like when your grandkids have a kid. you're their kids' great-grandmother. >> so you're going to be a great-grandmother. >> like if jackie is pregnant. >> oh! are you kidding me? >> third time is the charm. just wanted to say congratulations, grandma and nice effort, kids. and we wanted to thank america's funniest home video for that video. sunday, 7:00, 6:00 central. coming up, angelina jolie's doctor joins us with important information about a rare type of breast cancer. what you should know.

if i go crazy i love this music today. welcome back to "gma." both batman and superman are featured in "ew" mag featuring their own cover. ben affleck, henry cavill, all the stars on "gma." looking forward to that movie. superman or batman? >> i go with batman. >> i can't choose yet. >> political. >> superman. >> batman. >> there we go. >> marciano. >> anything to wear tights. >> set the trap. you guys jumped right in. >> every time. it's so awesome. the other big movie we're looking forward to this weekend is "zootopia" starring shakira as a singing gazelle talking
8:31 am
and will tell us how her 3-year-old son reacted to her song. >> i bet well. >> over to robin. >> you didn't ask but i'll go with batman because of robin. hey, that was easy. i'm on a roll. we have an important health headline. there are many different types of breast cancer as you know. one is called triple negative breast cancer. you may never have heard of it unless you or someone you know was diagnosed with it. i had never heard of it until i was diagnosed in 2007 but today is triple negative breast cancer awareness day. we are shining a light on it dr. kristi funk, angelina jolie's surgeon and the co-founder of the pink lotus breast center and joins us this morning from los angeles. always great to see you, dr. for this. as we said there are many cancer. this affects about 10%, 20%. can you just tell us exactly what triple negative is. >> sure, there are three
8:32 am
for on a cancer cell, about 75% have estrogen and pro-guess story rhone receptors, they hit receptor and fuel the cancer to multiple fly and divide. the third is a growth factor. found in 25%. but if your tumor lacks all three of these receptors we term it triple negative. >> it's like you check, check, check, none -- you can't check of the boxes so that is triple negative. who is most at risk for this particular type of breast cancer? >> the most prevalent population is a brca-1 mutation carrier and african-american, latinas and women under 40. >> and why is it important to you, dr. funk, to bring attention to this and as we said today is triple negative breast cancer awareness day. why is that so important? >> well, it's important because triple negatives when taken as a group have the worst survival rates of any other subtype of breast cancer. they have the highest recurrence rates and the worst survival

at 2.8 years after diagnosis. >> yes, when you hear things like that and it's -- the recurrence, so what is the treatment? what is available right now? >> well, for the cancer in your breast we treat that with surgery and radiation. but what about that rogue cell that might be flying around in your bloodstream? that's the real trigger that causes recurrence in an organ like liver or lung you cannot live without so if you had a receptor for estrogen we could target that recep ter with tamoxifen. her 2, we have a drug for that. with triple negative it's like this naked cell flying around with no target on its back at all so our only recourse to seek and destroy it is chemotherapy and once that's done a triple negative cancer patient just sort of, there's no pill to take. we just sort of sit back and hope and wait it doesn't recur. >> it's really tricky those first five years in particular, right, dr. funk? >> it's tricky but if you make it your fifth year anniversary

8:35 am
predict a recurrence 8 1/2 months prior to it being detectable like a p.e.t. or ct and have a window for patients and doctors to strategize and maybe get at a cure before a deadly recurrence. >> oh, that is so key and what do you want to say to those that are waking up this morning and they are concerned about their health and they have been just diagnosed with this. what is your message to them? >> well, i'd love for you to contact us. just e-mail study @pink and get you in touch with the people running this study and hopefully we can stave off that recurrence. >> i hope so. always a pleasure, dr. funk. thanks for your tireless efforts in the work you're doing. keep in touch. thank you. outside to rob. >> hey, robin, we are trying to warm up here. got a good crowd out here. hey, happy birthday to you. >> thank you. >> mom, daughter.
