morning to you. more than a dozen arrests in these latest demonstrations, the trump rallies turning into magnets for protesters who want to stop trump as the candidate is now shaking up the entertainment world. >> please welcome donald trump. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: overnight, donald trump bringing politics to hollywood. telling jimmy kimmel he'd be open to debating senator bernie sanders. >> if i debated him, we would have such high ratings. toward a charity, i would love to do that. >> reporter: sanders tweeting game on and that he's looking forward to debating trump. but musical guest the weeknd canceling their performances not wanting to share the stage with trump. a bit of showbiz drama in the middle of what's becoming a wild west coast trip. >> donald trump has to go. >> reporter: in anaheim anti-trump protesters clashing with police. officers in riot gear getting in between demonstrators and trump
supporters. scenes like this one here >> that's him. >> reporter: have police at trump's california stops gearing up for possible chaos. disruptions also inside his events. >> get him out. out, out, out, out. don't hurt him. i say that for the television cameras. >> reporter: where trump's trying to keep the pressure on hillary clinton. is there she's got bad judgment. she's got horribly bad judgment and that was stated by none other than crazy bernie. >> reporter: the presumptive gop nominee trying to make the case he's the candidate for female voters. >> bring some of them up. >> meeting with a woman's group and then bringing the women up on stage. >> they're women that love trump. i'm telling you women do like me. i'm telling you. >> reporter: but hillary clinton not convinced questioning trump's reputation with women suggesting he's sexist. >> i don't know whether it makes him feel good to insult people. he makes a habit of insulting
women. >> reporter: clinton painting trump's campaign as one big greedy ego trip. >> i think we have to keep reminding him this is not a reality tv show. >> reporter: and we've gotten a look into the trump playbook. the campaign accidentally meilesed a political reporter instead of a republican rnc researcher. the trump team asking for information on the clinton real estate scandal known as whitewater. >> thank you. now to that new report about hillary clinton's e-mails. the inspector general attack her use of a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state and this morning clinton is responding. abc's cecilia vega has the latest. she's with the clinton campaign there in california. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. this certainly does not come at a good time for hillary clinton as she struggles with those trust and favorability numbers trying to lock up this primary fight here in california and head into a general election. the report, 83 pages slamming hillary clinton for breaking state department e-mail rules.
overnight her first response to the report telling univision her e-mails won't be an issue >> it's the same story and it's not an issue that is going to affect either the campaign or my 3rez si. >> reporter: despite her confidence investigators say the former secretary of state never requested or obtained permission to conduct government business on her private server. even though they say she had an obligation to do so. and this, clinton has repeatedly promised to cooperate with the fbi investigation into those e-mails. >> i made it clear i'm more than ready to talk to anybody any time. i'm happy to answer any questions that anybody might have. >> any time you want to talk to me, here i am. >> reporter: but according to the inspector general clinton and her close aide huma abedin refused to talk to state department investigators and another revelation, clinton has said her private server was never hacked, but the report claims there was an attempted hack citing multiple staffers who sounded alarms, one trucking
the team not to e-mail clinton anything sensitive. and about those 55,000 pages of e-mails clinton handed over to investigators, that was apparently incomplete. the report says she failed to include e-mails from her first few months on the job. this morning the clinton campaign pointing to other findings that show another secretary of state used a private e-mail account too. the clinton spokesman tweeting her personal e-mail use was not unique at state department and clinton's likely republican opponent wasted no time going after her. >> she's as crooked as they come. the inspector general's report, not good. >> reporter: yeah, this new report is certainly giving her critics fresh ammunition. now while clinton would not cooperate with the state department investigation she says she is cooperating with the fbi investigation into these e-mails, george. campaign officials tell me no date for that interview has been set yet. >> okay, cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk about it more with jon karl and, jon, this is
a tough report from the inspector general calls many of secretary clinton's explanations into question and as cecilia points out the fbi investigation still looming. >> reporter: yeah, and this has had an effect on her campaign. this story first broke 452 days ago and yet we're still learning more about her e-mail practices and, george, it is the primary reason why you see in some polls 60% and more say they find hillary clinton not honest and trust worthy but the big question is the one raised by cecilia at the end which is what happens with the fbi investigation. clinton officials say that they are waiting by the phone expecting her to be called in for questioning in that investigation and hope it happens soon so they can finally put this to bed. >> meanwhile, jon, at his press conference talking about donald trump again saying world leaders he's talked to are surprised by the rise of donald trump and not sure how seriously to take him. let's look. >> they're rattled by him.
and for good reason. because a lot of the proposals that he's made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude or an interest in getting tweets and headlines. >> pretty clear, jon, the president won't hold back at all on taking on trump. >> reporter: when he's firing a missile like that from japan, you know that he is eager to get out there on the campaign trail. his legacy is on the line this fall. the president is waiting to get out on the campaign trail and is eager to do it. that extreme weather, 12 reported tornados from oklahoma to minnesota in the last 24 hours. this massive twister reportedly half a mile wide tearing through abilene, kansas, and look who is standing by there. will is ginger. she is back but first rob marciano is in kansas with the latest.
good morning, rob. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it was supposed to be a relatively quiet day, but look at this. tremendous tree damage, some roof damage to that brick home pretty sturdy but this side home built out of brick and se senderblock walls completely blown out. the supercell that popped up late afternoon dropped a tornado on the ground that was huge and on the ground for a terrifying amount of time. overnight, tornadoes taking aim at kansas for a second day. >> it's completely destroyed. >> reporter: officials describing this massive tornado ripping across the state as catastrophic. >> houses have been leveled. >> reporter: estimated to be a half a mile wide and tracking on the ground for nearly 90 minutes. >> absolute monster tornado about to cross i-70. >> reporter: cars pulling off the road as this enormous funnel approaches. >> so close. that's a barn sitting in the road, folks. >> reporter: up to 20 homes damaged or completely destroyed.
as the tornado went across the region. lightning igniting the sky. >> monster wedge tornado. >> reporter: more than 100 first responders working throughout the night checking homes for those who may be hurt. watch this extraordinary video. a camera left recording in the path of a wedge tornado. winds picking it up and whipping it around within the vortex as the violent tornado passes over. and after nightfall in oklahoma, lightning strikes revealing another funnel on the horizon. those search teams still working this morning. the recovery and cleanup efforts today will be shrouded by the angst of likely more severe weather, robin, this afternoon. >> we're going to talk about that, rob. thank you. we turn to ginger with more on where the severe weather is headed and as rob alluded to, even more threats today. >> exactly. it's happening this morning even, robin. some severe thunderstorms in parts of wisconsin, western illinois down into missouri,
some strong storms this morning. that will blow through and then we'll see a revamp of all of this, the trough digging in deep and the severe potential especially for parts of nebraska, kansas and then right here along the dry line down in parts of texas. large hail is one of the main threats but tornadoes, big today. the possibility especially from kearney to hastings, omaha, topeka, elevated today and wanted to show you, look at this video. it goes from the green grass to where you can see specifically how that tornado scoured the land. this happens often in tornadoes but we don't get to see that dichotomy too often where it looks like a lawn mower went through, blender of a tornado and that's what happened. the debris and all that wind. quickly a look at the risk. tomorrow it doesn't end so right in the heart of this severe weather season and it's going nowhere. i'll have much more coming up. >> great to have you back at the map. >> me too. to the tsa chief on capitol hill facing tough questions about those long airport lines
and details the changes the agency is already making and david kerley has the latest from regan national airport. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, george. this morning as airports and american pharoah airlines on the hill, 70,000 passengers have missed flights because of long lines. they follow the top man from the tsa who is in the hot seat. those long lines leading to pointed questions from congress still being asked this morning. >> administrator, the american people are angry and frustrated as we head into the busiest travel season of the year, starting this memorial day weekend. >> asking passengers to arrive three hours before as, can be t back to more of us flying, new security measures and not enough screeners. >> 768 we're hiring should be on board by june 15th. >> reporter: and other changes, he says, are shortening the lines. >> we're already seeing a dramatic improvement. >> reporter: after two hours in front of members of congress the
tsa administrator didn't want to stop when i asked. a couple of words, admiral or not? neffenger received praise from delta air lines for green-lighting this conveyer belt cutting red tape. passengers walk up to an open slot, put their belongings in a bin and push it on to a separate belt. no waiting for the person in front of you to empty their pockets. >> bags continue to flow through so the line never stops. >> reporter: tsa says if that system works in atlanta they'll roll it out across the country as quickly as possible. george, sign me up for that one. >> looks pretty slick. thanks very much. amy, you have more trouble at the airports. >> that's right. there is some alarming information about how many times people get past airport security fences and reach the tarmac. we learned overnight intruders breach perimeter gates about once every ten days. the a.p. found hundreds of breaches over the past 12 year, dozens of those went unreported
by airports, airport officials dispute the findings saying some incidents were not security breaches. well researchers have found an alarming link twine the great recession and cancer. they found that after the 2008 financial crisis, cancer deaths spiked more than 260,000 people died of cancer in wealthy countries without universal health care. the main reason people who were unemployed could not afford the proper care. well, in seattle they are still trying to figure out what caused a power outage that left 60% of downtown in the dark. people were trapped in elevators, traffic, as you might imagine came to a halt at intersections, even the power company itself lost electricity. well, finally we know the french make the absolute most of their leisure time so you would think 35-hour workweeks and six weeks of vacation would be enough. no. it is now illegal for companies with more than 50 employees to send work-related e-mails on weekends and holidays. it is part of the newly enacted
right to disconnect amendment which hopes to reduce burnout in the workplace. i'll volunteer for a transport to our paris bureau. >> we'll be right behind you. >> oui, oui. >> that would fly here. speaking of not working, take a look. reports this morning president obama will trade the white house in for this one after he leaves office, check that out. stunning, nine bedrooms, 8 1/2 baths. it is valued at more than $5 million. the four-story brick home is reportedly owned by former clinton white house press secretary joe lockhart. it features a marble foyer, gated courtyard. formal gardens and a wine cellar. obama would be the first president to remain in d.c. wince woodrow wilson. that's 96 years ago. the obamas want to stay in the capital until their baby girl, sasha, completes high school and i just learned from george that this is near all the embassies so not a bad neighborhood.

a unique and incredibly damaging way of getting attention by bullying people even when there was no connection with the public interest. he put a plan in place of secretly funding cases in hopes of crippling the website. saying it's less about revenge and more about specific deterrence. explaining why he decided to help, they usually attack less prominent, far less wealthy people that simply can't defend themselves, even someone like terry bow laila who is a millionaire and famous and a successful person didn't quite have the resources to do this alone. >> well, they picked the wrong guy this time. >> reporter: hogan spoke about his invasion of privacy lawsuit and huge win with linzie janis in march. >> i knew we were doing what was right and even if we would have lost, it would have been good because everybody would have known what gawker was all about. because i exposed them and what they do and how they look at the world which to me have very, very scary. >> reporter: overnight a florida judge denying gawker's request
for a retrial as it fights to reverse that $140 million reward for hogan in a statement nick denton the gawker founder who was personally named in the hogan suit told "the new york times," just because peter theil is a silicon valley billionaire his opinion does not trump our millions of readers. robin. >> rebecca, thank you. we turn to abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams, you talked about this some time ago. we didn't know who the person was. >> yeah. >> this is something we'll see more of, do you think? >> i don't think we'll see a lot of it meaning you're talking about someone who is so rich going after an independent publisher, right, so those are the key factors here. that is sort of unprecedented. meaning you got these businesses that invest in lawsuits, right. they're basically betting on the outcome. they're saying i'm going to bet x amount of dollars because i think the verdict will be that much more. this is totally different because this is personal. he's doing this because he wants to bring gawker down. on the one hand there's nothing wrong or illegal with that, per se, yet on the other hand, i
will ahe tell you someone who owns a series of websites, it's scary to have this idea that someone could be determined to bring you down. >> but as rebecca said in her report, this in some ways levels the playing field. a lot of people want to bring a suit and have -- and it didn't affect the outcome. i mean the fact that he paid for his legal fees didn't affect the outcome of it. >> it didn't affect the jury's verdict, per se, but if the report is true, it did impact some of their legal strategy. meaning their legal strategy to remove one of the counts against gawker so their insurance company wouldn't defend them, right? that's actually changing the legal strategy based on the fact that they've got someone who is bankrolling the whole thing so it doesn't really matter how much money they're going to get out of it as long as they inflict enough pain on gawker. >> that's something different. >> that is one way it did impact the legal strategy here. fascinating, fascinating case. >> still in the appeals process. >> oh, the appeals process could
cost millions and millions of dollars. >> the fact we now know about theil is not going to -- >> not going to change the outcome but it will make us think about it. >> all right, dan, thank you. >> thanks. we move on to new reports about johnny depp and amber heard calling it quits after 15 months of marriage, the two, of course, made headlines for their battle with australia over their dogs and abc's david wright has the latest on this new trouble. >> reporter: this morning the hollywood couple who fought so hard to save their yorkshire terriers pistol and boo. >> australia is a wonderful island with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people. >> it has to be protected. >> reporter: johnny depp and amber heard are now splitting up. citing irreconcilable differences. >> want a little bet. >> reporter: they set on "the rum diary" back in 2009 eloping in 2012. >> there were rumors basically from the day that they got married that they were getting divorced. >> reporter: now the big question who will get custody of

sending photos and then the unthinkable. she says the explicit photos were e-mailed to her family and friends. >> i was getting nominations for homecoming queen and i had friends inquire and once everything went out i had no friends. >> reporter: police say bethany was actually tormented by a fellow student at her high school. the suspect, chris hirtzel in jail facing six felonies including distribution of child pornography. he has not yet entered a plea. >> when a parent allows a child to go online unsign advised it's basically dropping them on one of the most dangerous corners in the city. >> reporter: as for bethany, her biggest piece of advice, speak out. >> tell their parents. they're not going to be mad at you. whatever you do, don't send those pictures because they can come back and haunt you. >> important there. don't be afraid to tell your parents. t.j. is back along with callahan walsh from the national scenter

the kids don't come forward, what kind of warning signs can parents look for. >> we've talked to many parents and some of the things they've seen, but some of the things this i've seen is a withdrawal from social interaction and social situations and a decrease in energy levels as well. we had one victim required to send over 60 images a night to her predator. >> 60? >> 60 a night so if they're staying up late at night you could see that affect them in the morning. it does vary from case to case. >> if parents do discover this is happening to their kids, the kids come forward, what can they do? >> they need to report it. either to the cybertip line at the national center for missing & exploited children and to local authorities, as well. although sometimes with local police they don't have the resources or the expertise that the national center does but all important to report it. >> how do they contact you. >> missingkids.org/cybertip, cybertip line. >> important stuff here. outside to ginger. >> and we've got a birthday.
