good morning, america. breaking news as we come on the air, two attackers take hostages at a french church, kill a priest before police take them down. the french president, anti-terror squads now heading to the scene. massive wildfires scorch the west. 10,000 homes evacuated in california as firefighters battle the wall of flames on the ground and in the air. millions on alert as even hotter temperatures move in. first lady front and center, michelle obama steals the show as she launches a tough attack on donald trump at the convention. >> don't let anyone tell ever tell you that this country isn't great, that somehow we need to make it great again. >> the democrats' deep divisions still on display. as bernie sanders says he's with
hillary. >> hillary clinton must become the next president of the united states. >> in the wake of that e-mail scandal, the latest on the investigation. was all the chaos caused by russian hackers to sway an american election? >> announcer: live from philadelphia, pennsylvania, this is a special edition of "good morning america," "your voice, your vote," the democratic national convention. >> and we do say good morning, america. so many people talking about first lady michelle obama's moment on that stage last night here at the convention making the case for hillary clinton and taking on donald trump without mentioning his name one time. >> not even once. we also saw her tear up at the prospect of a woman president. no surprise president obama loved it. sent out a tweet, incredible speech by an incredible woman. couldn't be more proud and our country has been blessed to have her as flotus. i love you, michelle. also bernie's night, sanders getting nearly three full
minutes of applause when he walked out onto that stage but a lot of his supporters still not convinced that hillary is the one. a lot of anger still out there so democrats are working hard behind the scenes today to quiet any protests. >> we, of course, will have much more on that. first we want to get to the breaking news overseas. a deadly attack at a french church. two men taking hostages killing a priest before they were taken down. abc's lama hasan has the latest. good morning, lama. >> reporter: and good morning to you, robin. yeah, dramatic developments unfolding. here's what we know, two men armed with knives entered a church near rrouen taking five people hostage among them a priest and two nuns. police confirming to us the attackers killed a priest and critically injured another hostage. police rushed to the scene, reports of shots ringing out before the incident ended. with the two attackers killed, there is no claim of
responsibility and no motive yet. but the paris prosecutor's office has opened a terrorism investigation. the french president and interior minister are now at the scene of the attack. robin, george. >> heartbreaking. >> we'll move on to last night's drama at the democratic national convention. first lady michelle obama as we said wowed the crowd with her takedown of donald trump. then it was bernie sanders' turn to try to rally his angry supporters behind hillary clinton. cecilia vega was on the noor for all of it and joins us now. >> reporter: you know it. what a scene it was in here. bernie sanders bernie tried to pass the baton vowing to do whatever it takes to help her win but from many he faced open rebellion. >> reporter: the man at the center of a political revolution got a three-minute standing ovation. >> thank you. >> reporter: but overnight sanders' battle cry for hillary clinton -- >> hillary clinton must become the next president of the united
states. >> reporter: -- met with defiance, supporters in tears, the california delegation openly booing. on stage sanders trying to play mediator. >> it is no secret that hillary clinton and i disagree on a number of issues. that is what this campaign has been about. that is what democracy is about. >> reporter: while offstage he pleaded for calm after scenes like this. [ crowd chanting bernie ] >> reporter: delegates shouting at each minutes after the gavel kicked off the convention. even comedian sarah silverman lashing out. >> let me say to the bernie or bust people, you're being ridiculous. >> reporter: but it was michelle obama who stole the show. >> our motto is when they go low, we go high. >> reporter: taking on trump. >> don't let anyone ever tell you that this country isn't great. that somehow we need to make it great again.
because this right now is the greatest country on earth. >> reporter: and bringing former president bill clinton to his feet with her endorsement of a previous first lady. >> and when i think about the kind of president that i want for my girls and all our children, that's what i want, someone who understands that the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters. when you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips and the military in your command, you can't make snap decisions. >> reporter: an emotional mrs. obama even choking back tears. >> i wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. and i watch my daughters, two
beautiful, intelligent black young women, playing with their dogs on the white house lawn. and because of hillary clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the united states. >> reporter: you could hear it there, those cheers were just deafening. we're told michelle obama was heavily involved in writing and editing that speech and also know the speech writer behind those words is the same person who wrote that speech that was borrowed by melania trump during last week's republican convention. i can tell you in here that moment when michelle obama was on that stage was that one moment that had prolonged, sustained unity in this convention hall last night. it was really amazing to be here in for that. >> that's right, cecilia. thank you. now to that bombshell e-mail hacking scandal targeting the dnc. the fbi investigating accusat n
accusations that vladimir putin and the russians were trying to sway the election. abc's brian ross is here right now, has all the latest. good morning, brian. >> good morning, robin. in what is being described as a rapidly expanding fbi investigation, u.s. law enforcement offs tell abc news the hack was almost certainly a russian intelligence operation designed to affect the american election. democratic party officials say the hackers' malware bug operated inside their computers for at least a year undetected. >> i'm very confident that the malware that we looked at were russian actors. >> reporter: investigators dissected the computer's code and said they found clear evidence pointing to russia including the use of a russian alphabet keyboard. >> the time zones that it was compiled in, the language that the keyboards were set to, this absolutely was not an amateur operation. ♪ >> reporter: and the timing as democrats arrived in philadelphia was clearly no accident either. one of the leaked e-mails reveals how supposedly neutral
dnc staffers considered planting stories that bernie sanders was an atheist. another that his campaign was a mess. >> there's got to be an effort to undermine the democratic party and try to undermine hillary clinton. >> reporter: democrats see a russia conspiracy by vladimir putin to help donald trump, something his campaign manager strongly denied to george on "this week." >> are there any ties between mr. trump, you or your campaign and putin and his regime? >> no, there are not. it's absurd and, you know, no basis to it. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: but putin has frequently praised trump as bright and talented and trump returns the favor. >> i think i'd get along very well with vladimir putin. i just think so. people say, what do you mean? i think i had a get along well with him. >> reporter: in his business dealings trump and his children regularly sought investments in projects an the world from russian billionaires and millionaires. >> thank you to -- >> reporter: including one who served as the host of trump
during the miss universe contest three years ago. democratic party officials say there are many, many more e-mails including some possibly from the clinton foundation that they know were stolen and have yet to be made and fear it will come during the course of the campaign. >> let's talk to robby mook. how about that concern there are more e-mails to come, maybe even some as some sources said from hillary clinton's personal server, some of those 33,000 e-mails she deleted? >> well, george, obviously this is a concerning situation. it's a concern that an aggressive regime like vladimir putin's could be trying to not just infiltrate the e-mail system of the democratic party but actually influence the outcome of the election. i think it's also very troubling that we heard donald trump not just praise vladimir putin, but
at their convention they removed aid for the ukraine, from their platform and we heard donald trump talk about how he would not necessarily defend our eastern european nato allies from russian aggression. >> how about last night and talk about the convention. you saw michelle obama certainly unify the crowd there but over the course of the night and day we still saw so much anger among bernie sanders and his supporters. are you concerned you'll see more today? >> well, george, it was a boisterous evening. i will definitely say that. but the contrast between our convention and the republicans could not be greater. you saw bernie sanders who had endorsed weeks before come out on the floor, give a rousing endorsement of secretary clinton again when ted cruz spoke at prime time at the republican convention, he didn't even endorse donald trump. the governor of ohio didn't even
show up. supporters of senator sanders spoke frequently throughout the evening. they endorsed secretary clinton, as well. the platform passed by acclimation, so the business of the party got done by acclimation and we're looking forward to the roll call vote this evening. >> you saw sarah silverman tell bernie or bust crowd they're being ridiculous. is she right? >> well, i think what senator sanders talked about is the choice in this election is now before us and that is a choice between hillary clinton and donald trump. hillary wants to earn the vote of everyone. she -- and she's working hard to earn everyone's vote and we are working hard to unify this party. you saw that unification in action last night and we look forward to building on that this evening. >> you know, you talk about the choice between hillary clinton and donald trump. how concerned are you by the fact that in the polls coming out after the republican convention, hillary clinton's unfavorables are now actually
higher than donald trump's? >> well, george, part of what we're doing this evening is at the convention is helping voters get a bigger, broader picture of all of hillary clinton's career. this is someone who has fought for decades on behalf of kids and families. that's going to be her mission moving forward as president and a lot of voters just aren't familiar with her accomplishments, with her work out of law school to make sure that disabled kids got access to public education. how she worked for -- to provide universal health care for all americans and when she lost that fight she kept at it in a republican congress got the children's health insurance program passed, her historic work to reduce nuclear stockpiles as secretary of state, the list goes on and on and what we're going to spend time on tonight and president clinton is going to talk about tonight is her lifelong motivation and commitment to those fights and to making a
real difference in people's lives. >> robby mook, thanks for joining us this morning. robin. >> all right, george. now to the republicans, donald trump on the attack trying to make the most of turmoil here at the convention. and addressing that speculation about russian hackers. abc's tom llamas is on the campaign trail with trump in charlotte, north carolina. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. donald trump calling those claims from the clinton campaign conspiracy theories and going after many of the speakers last night at the democratic convention except for one. >> what a mess they have going. >> reporter: overnight, donald trump seizing on the fallout from the hacking of the dnc and the ousting of former party chair debbie wasserman schultz. >> i've watched her for years and what she was is hillary clinton's flunkie. she was rigging the system for hillary. as soon as there's heat put on hillary's person, hillary says, you're fired. >> reporter: the clinton
campaign trying to tie trump to the hack possibly by russian agents. democrats point to trump's affinity for russian leader vladimir putin. >> i never met putin in all fairness but that putin likes trump and, therefore, he went in and he stole it and he wants trump to win, okay, now, i have to say this, number one, it was one of the weirdest conspiracy -- >> reporter: but the republican nominee signaling he would be a friend to russia. >> wouldn't it be nice if russia and us and a couple of others went out and knocked the hell out of isis? >> reporter: trump also calling out democratic presidential candidate senator bernie sanders for endorsing clinton. >> the sad thing is that if he didn't give up he really would have left a legacy. >> reporter: trump live tweeting the democratic national convention, posting bernie sanders totally sold out to crooked hillary clinton. all of that work, energy and money and nothing to show for it. and trump already looking past the democratic convention.
>> i would kill her in the debate, oh, by the way, am i looking forward to that debate. oh. >> reporter: and last night, donald trump pretty much going after every speaker in prime time at the democratic convention with the exception of one, first lady michelle obama. robin. >> that was noted. all right, tom, thank you very much. as george was just saying new polls show donald trump getting a boost after the republican convention last week. abc's jon karl joins us now to break them down and the race tighter than ever, right, jon. >> reporter: absolutely, robin. it's hard to measure a convention bounce at this point but it seems trump has clear momentum, especially on favorability and trust on voters. in fact, nate silver, our partners at five-:30tyeight put a chance of a trump victory at nearly 54% if the election was held there today and get there by looking at the state polls. let's take a look at our map, the red states are the states that republicans won in 2012, blue, democrats. right now they have trump ahead
in nevada, iowa, ohio, pennsylvania and florida and as you can see at the top, that gets them well beyond the 270 electoral votes he would need to win but i've got to caution, robin, this is a very fluid race and even in these states, the polling is all over the place. >> a lot of time between now and november. all right, thank you so much, jon. >> okay, robin, we move on to massive wildfires in the west. firefighters trying to battle the blaze and abc's kayna whitworth is on the scene in santa clarita with the late of the. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: good morning. we're at the sand fire, the biggest in california. more than 33,000iccers, 10% contained leaving behinds scenes like this. 20 homes have been destroyed and that includes the homes of firefighters themselves. this blaze has been explosive burning up to 10,000 acres a day but it is now pushing east into the angeles national forest and away from populated areas so because of that some people who were evacuated were allowed back
in their homes last night. of course, george, that is if they have anything to return to. >> boy, it is just devastating. okay, kayna, thanks very much. now back to new york and amy has the other top stories. >> good morning, we begin with the bombing outside the united nations offices in somalia. 13 killed including seven u.n. guards. a suicide bomber struck a somali security checkpoint. al shabaab has claimed responsibility. 19 people have died after a former employee went on a stabbing rampage at a home for the mentally disabled near tokyo. this is the worst mass killing in japan since world war ii. police say the man was angry over being fired and wrote to japanese lawmakers warning them of his attack plan but they did nothing. back here in this country dallas police are seeing a surge of people applying for law enforcement jobs since the ambush that killed five officers this month. just days after the attack, police chief david brown urged protesters to serve the community and join the force and
that they did. since then applications have soared by 344%. in florida, a mother and her young daughter survived an incredibly close call. take a look as they crashed into a fence, a metal pole impaled their minivan piercing the windshield and front seat coming within just about an inch from where 4-year-old khloe was sitting in the back in her car seat. she suffered just a scratch to her forehead and told police i didn't cry and i was brave. she certainly was, george and robin. >> i didn't cry. thank you, amy. now to ginger and severe storms and heat in the northeast. we've certainly felt it yesterday and last night in philly, ginger. >> you had the storms come through. stunning image of lightning hitting the empire state building. there have been 20 deaths related to lightning this year in the united states. 11 in just the last two weeks. so be extra careful when those storms come through. let's get to the tuesday trivia brought to you by brookdale senior living.

and it's time now for our big board. our team of insiders standing by for more on today's top stories. matt dowd right here with us and let's talk about the first story right now, bill clinton tonight here at the democratic convention. he's got kind of a mixed record at conventions. debuted in 19 8, bombed. many of course, did well in 1992 and last year, four years ago for president obama, really effective speech but tonight it's very tricky for him trying
to get there on behalf of his wife without overshadowing her. >> he's on an historic streak. his tenth convention in a row he's speaking at. longer than anybody has. he is the cal ripken of political convention in the course of this. i think he would be smart to break the ice on this and say i've put hillary clinton -- i put my wife through a lot. she's gone through a lot. she's fought through a lot and i put her through a lot and here's who she is. i think that would be a good move. i don't know if he'll do it but it would be a great move. >> thinking back to '88 and '92, the crowd that he faced then and the crowd he's going to face tonight, the democratic party is different. how will he get his message across. >> different and the environment is different. that was a time when the republicans won three straight terps and the democrats really wanted to win and went to somebody that was a more moderate democrat from the dlc, democratic leadership council. that's not this democratic party today and that's not the country today. it's a much more progressive party. it's a party that doesn't really like the compromises of conservatives and liberal --
they want a much more progressive agenda and it will be interesting to see how he is received here. he is still well liked but -- >> yeah, but how he will handle possible protests. we seen him at states of the union ad lib go off and engage the protesters. will he do that tonight? >> he is aggressively handled protesters over the past year or so. that's not going to be a good thing at this because you don't want the former president to get booed but one things the democrat have that the republicans don't is a former president speaking at their convention. >> we'll see what happens tonight. also, you know, gas prices, they're on the way down. did you hear about this. >> yes. >> we want to talk to dave ramsey about that. aaa just came out, the new national average is down to $2.15 nationwide. why is this happening an how low will it go? >> whoo-hoo. isn't it wonderful? i love it when i fill up my car it doesn't cost so much. it's happening because opec is
opening the spigot. oil is a supply/demand price thing so they flooded the market with extra oil and it's driven the prices down. how long they will continue to do that, who knows but, boy, we're going to enjoy it while we can and, hey, it's under $2 in some places. it's awesome. >> you talk about enjoying it, dave but a lot of people go out and spend it. how do they save it? >> well, you don't want to spend it, obviously. it's a chance for you to do some good things with your money and that always starts with the "b" word, the dreaded budget where you give every dollar a name and make those extra dollars that you have behave. we have a free online budget tool called every dollar. you can get it at everydollar.com and it lays out a full plan for you and you give every one of those dollars a name. a couple things you can do with them, with you, get out of debt. that would be awesome because if you didn't have payments you'd have more money to give and be generous with and more to build wealth with. we teach a thing called the debt snowball and helped 10 million people get out of debt using that. that's where you list your debt,
smallest to largest and pay them off in that order very aggressively and grandma's rainy day fund, common sense, we need an emergency fund. why? because sometimes there's an emergency. sometimes folks say, dave, you should be positive. well, i'm positive sometimes it's going to rain and you need a rainy day fund. >> you know, this is like the good old days with you, dave. i remember you on "gma" giving us this good, solid advice like that about grandma and what to do with your money. always good to see you, dave ram. >> i good to have you back. delivery by drone. looks like it could become close to reality. 7-eleven releasing a new video of an order arriving to a customer's home in reno, nevada, got a chicken sandwich, hot coffee and, of course, a slurpee and becky worley is here with more. is it getting real. >> i am so ready for slurpees delivered by drone but alas, it's not here yet. this test is a sign that it's closer. the experiment here, the package traveled less than a mile, total air time including the winching

majority forward is responsible for the content of this advertising. welcome back to "gma." we are live in philadelphia for day two of the democratic convention. it is bill clinton's night tonight. he will take the stage to make the case for his wife hillary and, robin, america is going to meet the moms you spoke with yesterday. >> all seven of them will take the stage tonight, the mothers of the move many. we introduced you to them earlier this morning. they're speaking about tonight's theme, a lifetime of fighting for children and families and pushing for justice for police reform and gun violence prevention in their communities and around the country after the deaths of their children. >> we might be the seven that are sitting here but it's so much bigger than us. >> reporter: seven mothers with a powerful battle cry to end gun violence and excessive police force. including sybrina fulton, mother of trayvon martin, the unarmed
florida teen shot and killed by a neighborhood watchman in 2012. >> there's something that has been placed inside us that says, listen. you can't help your son or daughters but you certainly can help other children. >> reporter: cleopatra's daughter hadiya dying as a result of gun violence in her chicago community is it we have to bring back community. we say we want these young people to focus on something different or, you know, not be violent but an idle mind is a dangerous mind so if they have no community centers or programs that can reach them there's no employment, you're going to fall into the negativity. >> miss gwen, we saw the video of your son and heard those 11 times saying i can't breathe and i know you were tired from that. is it important to say this is my life's mission at this point. >> i never thought that i would
be in this position. i was thrown into it, i never wanted this. i would rather have my son today that i could talk to him on the phone or visit him. >> yes. >> we must bring awareness and tell the people don't wait till tragedy knock on your door. >> and your daughter was jailed for a traffic stop. >> yes, yes, and i think that what we have to address here, it wasn't that she was jailed for a traffic stop. she was jailed because she was profiled. >> her daughter, sandra bland later found dead at her jail cell. >> we know there is nobody in the world of my family who believes that sandy killed herself. it hurts and then you feel like you have to get up and fight. >> and so they are. these women and other mothers who have lost children invited to voice their concerns privately with hillary clinton. >> this is not only wrong, it is unacceptab
unacceptable. >> what did you say to her. >> we talked about the injustices that we continue to see happen within our communities again and again and again. >> she endorsed all of us. she contacts us. she still calls us. we still get letters when we're not traveling with her. >> when you had the two killings of black men, and then the killing of police officers, it was like one day, second day, third day. >> right. >> how do you all handle this unrest? >> well, let me -- >> that we see. >> let me take that one and i couldn't watch the tv. i couldn't watch any of it because it was too much for me. >> you know that police officers' families have also lost lives. >> yes. >> what is your feeling when you see how police officers feel that they have been targeted recently. >> what they feel is what we've been talking about. those are the issues that people have been living every day. >> yes. >> now the conversation is a little louder because the police
have become victims. >> right, i'm not saying the assaults on law enforcement are right at all. >> no. >> you know, killing someone with a gun is just -- it never a life should be taken. >> that's right. >> and so what you see happening to the police now why they're being targeted is because of all the root of the systemic racism and the poverty and the way there's no relationship between the communities and the police and law enforcement, that is the root and so what you see now is that, you know, there's a bursting of the seams here. >> this is a bad time to be a good cop in this country. >> yes, it is. >> we need to remember they have lives too. let's stop asking the officer to do all of these things and then we're not willing to do what we need to do. we need to do self-check. you can't say they are the bad guy but i'll bet you what, break into my home, i'm calling
mr. officer. oh, yes, i am. absolutely and we have to remember that. >> we don't hate police officers. >> not at all. >> absolutely we don't hate police officers. >> a lot of people get call up on the uniform but under that uniform is somebody that belongs to somebody who really loves them. >> i'm glad that you said that because it's so true because i look at you as veries even though you're a group and see you as individual, same thing with police officers. what is it that you want and there's just no room for negotiation, has to change in your opinion? >> our leaders need to be accountable. >> legislation, keeping guns out of the hands of people who should not have guns. the easiest things that you can do to start protecting community, not just minority communities, but the communities at large. >> their shared pain now transformed into a lifelong bond and a powerful message. >> we all have gone through tragedies and just to be around people who know what we are
going through, unless you have lost a child, you don't know this side. so, you know, i know her heart. i know her heart. you know, it's just like i know them. it's like i know the pain because i live the pain every day. >> we're very protective of each other. >> i see that. >> so much so. >> such a bond that you see between all of them and it's a club none of them wanted to join and the reason that they're joined together is to help other families so it doesn't happen to them and they help one another because yesterday geneva, that's sandra bland's mother, it was a year ago yesterday that they buried her daughter and it was very difficult but they were there for each other, laughter, tears but a real connection they have. >> what a powerful message she had, bad time to be a good cop reaching out to that side. >> they're not anti-police. they're not -- like she said she'll be the first ones to call the police if there's trouble.
but, again, it comes back to they said accountability on all fronts and that people in -- certain people in communities have to change their view of how police work and police have to change their view and so it is an ongoing conversation but what they're hoping for and all people are hoping for is like it's great to have dialogue, great to have a conversation, it's not playing the race card if you talk about it. but it's about the solutions and they're going to take that stage tonight and talk about the solutions that they hope to see. >> we will be here, of course, for all of that and we'll be here all week long. 10:00 every night in prime time. 10:00 eastern and "gma," "world news" and "nightline" all live from philadelphia. here for the democratic convention. let's go back to ginger. >> when do you sleep, george? >> a couple hours. >> okay. ginger. >> i can't hear you very well. you are missing a party out in times square. great story robin we loved hearing about it. what he we want to do is check in -- you saw the storms in
philadelphia. look at the pictures from brooklyn. flash flooding. the rainfall stays to the south. heavier stuff in virginia and parts of the coastal north carolina. that's the big picture. let's go ahead and get a check now a little closer to home. >> ginger heavy storms are gone from last night still warm and humid this morning. exclusive accuweather 7-day shows less humid conditions building in this afternoon. it's still going to be hot. 95 and 93 tomorrow. y target. let's go ahead and get inside to lara. >> thank you very much. we turn to our magical "harry potter" exclusive. so much excitement for the new story and abc's juju chang has all the details. >> reporter: we begin at the ending of "harry potter and the deathly hallows." it's 18 years since voldemort's death and our hero is sending his sons off to hog wart's. p potterheads everywhere dying to know what happens next. >> i don't know, sir.
>> reporter: clearly hermione knows but she's not going to tell us. so we hounded j.k. rowling's long time u.s. editor to get the scoop. only way to travel for a "harry potter" story, magically. time to evaporate. who exactly is the cursed child? >> i'm not going to tell you. >> arthur a. levine is the muggle responsible for bringing one of the most successful book franchises to america including the latest story "harry potter and the cursed child." >> the biggest difference is that this is a script, so it's really all in the dialogue and the stage directions. >> reporter: in a popular london stage play soon to be released in script form, harry has a day job, hunting down dark wizards for the ministry of magic. and yet is he having a mid-life crisis? is there some danger looming? >> you know, you can only imagine. >> reporter: so can you give me the secret ending? >> no. >> can you give me the surprise plot twists. >> no. >> does voldemort return?
you'd make an excellent spy. levine gave me a tour of some of scholastic's "harry potter" artifacts. that's one big trunk. this trunk carried the first signed copy of the sixth book to america. in what way is this story true to its roots? >> it's really about the question of how do you be a true friend? how do you be a good parent? you know, these are larger things that everyone can relate to and you don't really have to be a "harry potter" fan. >> reporter: for "good morning america," juju chang, abc news, new york. >> i'm in. >> i'm in. >> going to be so good. and the script for "harry potter and the cursed child" is available this sunday. coming up, mara schiavocampo and her sister sharing their body proud secrets. stay with us.
pia schiavocampo seem like complete opposites. mara is a health and fitness enthusiast who wrote the book "thinspired." pia is a body acceptance activist. >> beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. >> reporter: who runs mixed fat chick. even in the kitchen, their approach to cooking is different. >> i'm doing mine with bacon, hello, can you say bacon? she's doing hers with spaghetti squash. >> reporter: but the pair say underneath it all their goes are the same. >> what we're seeking is freedom. peace of mind, acceptance, confidence, self-love. >> you just sort of get to a place where you're like, you know what, i'm enough. it's okay to be in this body and it's okay to love myself. this is me. you got to love it or leave it. >> love me or leave me alone. >> or leave me alone. i love it. >> i love it too. >> i love it. >> reporter: joining us now are mara and pia and six other women who have all taken similar journeys. thank you for being with us. i want to ask, you all have different stories but what do
you think about each other's messages? >> you know, it's interesting, the day i realized we really did have quite a big difference was the day my diet book came out she wrote a blog about how much she hates diet books so i thought, okay, we have this difference but what i've come 20 realize we really are much more similar. i have seen so much of her journey up close and personal and vice versa and so happy to see her in a good place and inspired. >> pia, you love mara's diet book, don't you. >> this is the thing, her book was so open and honest about where she came from and that was what was really important. it wasn't this like, oh, i'm a thin happy person, i have struggles and i think the end game is all about being healthy and healthy. that's how she got to her place so that's fantastic. >> i can see how you two are related. all right. teresa, i want to bring you into the conversation because you got fans out here. you've been struggling with weight your whole life and you relate to more -- sorry, essie, your experience is more like pia's, correct. >> correct.
definitely through social media, so popular now, i felt the pressure to be a little smaller. a little thinner but with the power of social media and the body positive community i celebrate my size with confidence. definitely made me feel better about myself so i know you've definitely dealt with social media. how do you feel about the pressure? >> social media has been the thing that has made me kind of come to this happy place. because i surround myself and my feed is filled with women who look like you and elise and that makes me feel good about myself. my favorite #iamenough. no matter what size or color or 5b89, you are enough as you are. that's important to me. >> i know you've been struggling as well. tell me about your experience. >> yes, i struggled with my weight my entire life. i know i'll never be a size 2 or a 4 but i'm on my way to self-acceptance. when did that come to you. >> i found that i didn't start accepting and loving myself more when i started losing weight, i
started losing weight when i started loving and accepting myself more. because when i took the food out, i had to replace it with something and what i replaced it with that was effective was self-care. resting when you're tired. drinking when you're thirsty, giving yourself nourishing food and really loving yourself. that for me was the key. >> we're walking over to the yoga mats. but, brittany, you're struggling with your weight but worried about your healthy food choices. >> being a thin woman is a misconception that we don't have to eat healthy or exercise and it's a health concern so i just -- mara, how do you feel about eating right. >> for me i've always said i don't think exercise is that important for weight loss. you can lose weight without exercise. for me it's all about what's up here and what's in here. exercise is about mind/body. >> mind/body. >> leave it all on the math. my favorite pose, i like balance poses so i love tree and probably will fall over on national tv but i hike to feel balanced and centered and that to me helps mind/body and gets me through the day.

southwest philadelphia. this is i-95 northbound by the exit for the platt bridge and the schuylkill. you see the police check point they're scanning the vehicles that look more than 5 tons. they're not allowing them to continue on i-95 because of the dnc and you can see how jammed we are on i-95 northbound. now from past 420 to at this point the exit for the platt and the schuylkill. moving now 20 miles an hour, a little bit better. we have a check point right here on i-95 southbound near the vine and you're crawling about nine, 10 miles an hour at this point from past the betsy ross bridge and you can see that's actually better than it was yesterday but that only speaks to how bad it was yesterday so still crawling along in the single digits. other problems, here's route 100 northbound at state street in upper pottsgrove township. a new accident there matt. >> thank you karen. can't shake these 90's at least not yet. let's go to dave murphy. >> yeah, matt right now it's warm. we have climbed into the 80's. it's 82 degrees currently and you might feel that humidity still hanging around for a bit this morning although as we go through the day it should get less humid. still going to be hot though. a high of 95 this afternoon so
cool drinks still important if you're going to be out and about but again there humidity far less as we go into the afternoon and way below the oppressive levels we felt yesterday. sunny and hot on wednesday, 93. humidity behaving itself. and then on thursday we start to get sticky again. in the afternoon and evening some strong thunderstorms are possible, still in the 90's matt but 80's by friday. >> thanks, david. a former president speaks tonight and the party is due to officially choose its nominee. take you back to live at the dnc at noon. the pa attorney general prepares for her perjury trial in montgomery county. live with kelly is next here on 6abc. allen coming is the guest host. i'm matt o'donnell. have a great tuesday.
fios is not cable. we're wired differently. so we wired the wagner's house with 100 meg internet. which means that in the time it takes mr. wagner to pour a 20 oz. cup of coffee, tommy can download 30 songs, and jan can upload 120 photos. 12 seconds. that's the power of fiber optics. and right now you can get 100 meg internet with equal upload and dowloads speeds, tv and phone for just $69.99 per month online. cable can't offer internet speeds this fast at a price this good. only fios can.
