from abc's tom llamas in las vegas, good morning, tom. >> reporter: good morning. in vegas they say the trend is your friend. right now the trend is favoring donald trump 3-3 in the primary calender and winning big last night. more than 40% of caucus-goers chose trump. he won by a huge margin that he was already on the victory stage hours before they could figure out second or third place. >> thank you. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump winning the nevada caucuses and heading into super tuesday with real momentum. >> we won the evangelicals. we won with young. we won with old. we won with highly educated. we won with poorly educated. i love the poorly educated. >> reporter: trump rallying his supporters late into the night. >> grab, grab, grab. you know, i get greedy. i want money, money. i'll tell you what we're going to do, right. we get greedy, right.
now we're going to get greedy for the united states. we're going to grab and grab and grab. >> reporter: predicting the nomination soon to be husband. >> it's going to be an amazing two months. we might not even need the two months folks to be honest. all right. >> reporter: overnight senator cruz thanking his supporters. >> is that the only campaign that has beaten donald trump and the only campaign that can beat donald trump is this campaign. >> reporter: trump taking his final shots before the caucuses at senator cruz. >> he's like a baby compared to some of the people i have to -- he is like a little baby. soft, weak little baby by comparison but for lying he's the best i've ever seen. he's the best. >> reporter: cruz firing back. all day tuesday making the case it's unclear what trump even stands for.
the truth of the matter is donald became president nobody knows what the heck he would do. he doesn't know what the heck he would do. >> reporter: this as senator marco rubio continues to win endorsements but acknowledging the field is too splintered. >> you have a majority of republicans that dog not want donald trump as the nominee. as long as they're being divided up for three or four people, it's good for donald. that's not going to continue. >> reporter: they'll drop out then. >> i think voters will take care of that. you already saw that. >> trump predicting a rubio/trump rumble could be coming. >> yeah, rubio. who, by the way, i've been very nice to. i've been very nice -- people say why are you so nice, because he hasn't hit me. when he does, he will -- you'll see what happens. >> reporter: now, one good sign for senator marco rubio is that he ran strongest among caucus goers who made up their mind in the last week after he received high profile endorsement from party leaders. there could be a sign enough time for rubio to catch up to trump to make the argument he's the nominee.
he has one more debate before super tuesday george. >> okay, tom, thanks very much. let's bring it to donald trump. mr. trump, congratulations on your victory. nevada last night, third in a row. the drudge report, want to show it to everyone. it says you are the nominee right now. are they right? >> well, i hope so. we certainly have an advantage, george. it was a great night. it was a great day and we were looking pretty good, i think, by any standard. >> you know, you're winning despite the fact you have taken many positions at odds with the republican party, supported democrats in the past, even more you're winning -- it's remarkable winning against a united front of elected officials. want to show this chart from fivethirtyate. marco rubio has the endorsement of senators, governors, members of congress. you have zero. what does that tell you about the republican party today and will it make it harder to unite the party? >> i have many endorsements but i don't go out and seek them. now as of yesterday people were calling and a lot of people were calling and i'll have many
endorsements but it's not something i want to work for to be honest with you because it's a waste of time. endorsements mean very little. we have as you know, we have some excellent endorsements and something i'm very proud of but it's a lot of work. you know, they want me to go to certain area, have a big news conference, i would rather be with the people and rather work with the people and get the kind of numbers we got yesterday because those numbers are amazing. we won with every single group, every single group. men, women, evangelicals, we won with all sorts of education, if you talk about education at the highest level to a lower level we won with everything, george. >> it was a pretty sweeping victory last night. you also heard ted cruz in that piece from tom llamas. marco rubio making the same point with robin coming up that nobody knows what you would do, how you would actually accomplish your goals as president. they're saying you haven't laid out the details. can you tell us right now what are the first three things you would do on day one in a trump white house?
>> well, the first thing i'd do is knock out some of the executive orders signed by our president. especially the one on the border where people are allowed to come in and just pour into our country like swiss cheese. i'll work out immediately to knock out obamacare and start taking care of our vets and military. >> you haven't said how you'll replace it. >> our vets have been absolutely treated horribly and we're going to take care of our vets. that's been a very, very big part of my campaign, the vets. >> making the point you haven't laid out specifically how you're going to achieve those goals. how you'll build the wall or replace obamacare. >> i've been specific in terms of the wall and in terms of obamacare, what i'm doing is very specific, whether we use health care savings accounts and that could happen because a lot of people are liking it a lot, obamacare is falling out under its own weight dead by 2017. people are not signing up for it.
it's a disaster. the rates and premiums going up by 35%, 45%, 55% and we'll have it at a fraction of the cost and i'm very specific on it, george. i'm a very specific person, believe me. >> finally, mr. trump, have you given any thought to who your vice president nominee might be if, indeed, you are the nominee and whether it would be an elected official or a more outside the box candidate. >> well, i haven't given thought. because i want to get over the line. we're still not over the line as well as i'm doing. i think we'll do fantastic and amazing what you're looking at and some states where already i'm very close in texas and, you know, you have a senator from texas, i'm leading in -- this will be the following week but florida is looking fantastically, ohio is looking great. you look at the different numbers and the different states, we just got numbers in on georgia. doing fantastically well, arkansas, so we're looking very, very strong, i think, george and we look forward to it. it's going to be an interesting week.
working, many of the states and it's going to be an interesting week. >> we got to go. can you give me one name? >> of a vice president? >> uh-huh. >> too early, george. you'll be one of the first to know. maybe not the first but you'll be one of the first to know. >> mr. trump, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you very much. >> as you alluded to earlier this morning i spoke with senator marco rubio and i began by asking him about his second place finish in nevada. >> we always want to do better. i lived there 25 years ago, 30 years ago and it was a great experience. obviously the city and state has changed a lot. we love coming back. we have a lot of family members there but always want to do better. we feel good about our second place finish. of course, you always want to be first but this is an unusual year and the nevada caucus is different than any other vote we'll see around the country, new experience and a lot of people turned out. a lot happened there. i congratulate donald. he had a good showing. we picked up significant number of delegates there and we move on to the other states. we have a big week next tuesday.
>> it was another big victory for donald trump and he said that many are wondering why you haven't gone after him. even he has said that you haven't hit him and we know that the next debate is coming up. do you expect to be -- are you going to change your tactics and be more aggressive towards donald trump. >> yeah, i don't understand this. i know there's a craving in the media for people to attack each other but i've never been a campaign that attacks people. now if i've been attacked i responded and we set the record straight about policy differences. i pointed out the things donald is for that i don't agree with. but we'll have a debate tomorrow night and if there are policy differences we'll talk about those. if he says something i don't agree with like he did in the last debate about george bush being responsible for 9/11 i'll correct him on it. >> you did say the other day that it seems like voters are gravitating toward the one who is the angriest. you didn't mention any names but many people assumed that you were referring to donald trump. were you? >> well, sure, his rhetoric is one that taps into that anger?
i share in that anger. it's one of the reasons why i ran for the senate five years ago. i was really upset about the direction of our country and inability of the republican party to do anything about it but anger alone won't solve our problems. you also have to know what you're going to do about it. running for president voters need to know what you're going to do and donald hasn't outlined exactly what he'll do. he'll tell us what the result will be but refuses to explain how it's going to happen. >> there have been four contests so far across the state. various parts of the country. and you have yet to come out on top. with super tuesday coming out, what do you need to do. >> i think what people need to understand about these contests between now and march 15th, all are places that award delegates which is how the nomination is decided. it's not decided by how many states you win but how many delegates you have and awarding them proportionately. march 15th, you're in ohio and florida that award them all at once. that's where you have to start winning states and we feel very confident about where we'll be come march 15th.
>> you picked up five delegates yesterday. and you really picked up many more key endorsements from the establishment. but we've seen with both republicans and democrats that voters aren't really embracing the establishment, politics as usual. are you concerned that being that type of backing may actually work against you and your campaign? >> in order for the republican nominee to become the president of the united states, it has to be someone that can bring the republican party together and then grow it, as well. and what we're showing is the ability to bring it together, to bring together all kinds of people within the republican party including some for whom i wasn't the first choice. >> thank you so much, sir. >> thank you. thanks so much. >> and it should be another lively debate tomorrow night. >> super tuesday coming up. right now donald trump ahead in all those states with the possible exception of texas. >> that's it. we move on to those severe storms slamming the south. at least 27 tornadoes reported and linzie janis is on the scene in pensacola, florida. good morning, linzie.
>> reporter: good morning. the devastation is incredible. a tornado tearing through this apartment complex throwing debris on these cars and look at this. the entire second floor of this building ripped off. you can see right into people's living rooms. >> look up. look up. >> reporter: more than two dozen reported tornados tearing through parts of the gulf states. overnight pensacola, florida, taking a direct hit as lightning illuminates the sky, you can see this massive funnel cloud moving in before cutting a two-mile path of destruction. >> the tornado just touched down within 30 seconds two buildings are completely collapsed. >> reporter: how did the tornado come through? this morning the sheriff showing me these apartment buildings destroyed. >> this is where we lean heavily upon state and federal agencies and, of course, thank god for the red cross. >> reporter: and in st. james parish, louisiana. >> oh, my goodness. holy cow. >> reporter: watch as this enormous tornado completely
obliterates this rv park. winds tossing nearly 200 rvs, ashley east stepping outside her camper as soon as it was safe. >> i just immediately took off running to help people. >> reporter: two people killed and dozens injured. first responders searching for those who may still be trapped in the mangled mess. >> we're hoping we can get down into those debris piles and try to find people. >> reporter: nearby another twister tearing into this gym filled with people. ripping the wall right off the side of the building. >> i started screaming everybody get down. everybody get down. take cover. >> reporter: a reported tornado plowing through assumption parish, louisiana, too, winds picking up this parked pickup and slamming it to the ground. this tractor trailer turned over. and check out these three tornadic waterspouts over lake pontchartrain just outside new orleans. authorities are working to secure this site so that residents can come back and try to salvage some belongings. miraculously, no one died and no
one was even seriously injured here. >> thank you for that. more now on those dangerous storms and new warnings are out this morning, right, sam? >> absolutely, robin. our hearts are with those people in pensacola. incredible damage and in louisiana, as well. where are those storms this morning? they're already alive and kicking and tornado watch out for a good part of florida and watch this into south georgia. now south georgia, i want to tell you that we've seen some tornado warnings out in the last hour in that line of storms. please pay particular attention to this and watch this. as that squall line continues to move east, some areas will see strong winds and even some hail. possible tornados. raleigh-durham, all the way into southern virginia. i want you to watch that today. these storms are still strong as they move in at 6:00 p.m., d.c., philly, you're in line for that squall line. only good news, jersey, new york city into new york state and connecticut and also western massachusetts, these storms weaken a little bit as they get to you by 10:00 p.m. but strong enough to make travel a nightmare.
there are already delayed flights at many airports along the east coast and there will be today. robin, george, lara. >> all right. a lot for sam to track today. we move on to new developments in that michigan murder getting our first look at surveillance video from the gun shop that uber driver visited before going on a rampage that killed six people, injured two others. abc's alex perez has the latest from kalamazoo. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, george. this morning we're learning a lot more about what the suspect was doing and the hours before the shootings and just how close some people came to getting into his uber. this morning our first glimpse at what's believed to be shooting suspect jason dalton in the hours before the deadly shootings. surveillance cameras capturing dalton checking out firearms at this kalamazoo gun shop. the owner says dalton didn't buy a gun but did buy a tactical jacket like this one. >> the person in here was friendly, talked to us, was smiling, joking around. >> reporter: less than three hours later prosecutors say the uber driver unleashed a rampage killing six.
14-year-old abigail kopf shot and injured in the parking lot of this restaurant, doctors say at one point her heart stopped. but she's now fighting for her life. >> actually she squeezed my hand. it was a miracle on its own. >> reporter: richard smith and his 17-year-old son tyler were killed in this car dealership parking lot. we've now learned tyler's teenage girlfriend was also there and hid in the family car calling 911. mallory lemieux and tory curtis were almost the 45-year-old driver's passengers that night until mallory's dad sent this text, multiple shootings with people dead. get home please. he also warned them police were looking for a suspect in a chevy. when the college student called an uber to go home her assigned driver was in a chevy. panicking, she canceled three times hoping for another vehicle. but they kept getting the same driver. jason, the last cancellation just four minutes before police arrested him. >> definitely just makes us feel
really lucky that we followed our instincts and didn't get in that car. >> reporter: both of those young ladies saying it will take them some time for the shock of this to wear off. dalton who's been appointed a public defender is due back in court next week. robin, george. >> so good they were so aware. >> thank you, alex, for that. sam, we heard about the wind, now the snow. >> because behind the storm we showed you on the east coast we got some snow this morning. poplar bluff, missouri, you're in line for some of this. st. louis, just started for you now. watch this, springfield, gary. remember yesterday we told you south of the lake. so gary, indiana very much in play to get some big snow all the way to lancing and flint, as well. look at the shades of pink. 6 to 12 inches. right there in northern indiana, gary near you, we're talking could be 10 inches of snow.

a 578 -- $75 billion courtroom battle against a stalker and a tennessee marriott claiming the hotel made it easy for him to film her in the nude. >> this is so humiliating to her and it continues and it's never going to stop. >> reporter: the tv star fighting back tears in a nashville court tuesday as her lawyers describe how michael david barrett found her room number, telling the jury barrett called the marriott of vanderbilt university with a strange request. >> i'm michael barrett. i want a room next to erin andrews. that's my request. >> reporter: and the hotel did nothing to prevent him from finding the room number. then failed to notice he removed and altered the peephole on her door to do it. >> he stands there for 4 1/2 minutes and videos her. >> reporter: but the hotel's lawyers saying barrett pulled a fast one on them. >> he deceived. he connived, he stalked. >> reporter: claiming his criminal behavior was his responsibility, not theirs adding he tried to film andrews in three different hotels over nine months in 2008, always with
the same m.o. >> picks up the phone, calls the hotel here, this is jeff, scott and erin andrews, i need to confirm our reservation. >> reporter: barrett later posting them online eventually pleading guilty to stalking in 2010 sentenced to 30 months in prison. for andrews the ordeal shaking her to the core revealing as a "gma" contributor her difficulty in coping. >> i would go through putting my head down because i felt like everywhere i looked everybody was looking even if they -- nobody was looking at me at all. >> reporter: but emerging to be a key advocate in strengthening anti-stalking legislation even telling congress in 2010 -- >> i had no idea just how serious this crime was until it affected my life. >> reporter: michael barrett isn't represented but is expected to testify in the trial. the hotel's franchise owner tells us they look forward to showing that nashville marriott acted reasonably and appropriately and andrews'
attorneys could call witnesses to talk about the emotional distress that she suffered. the trial is expected to last nearly two week, robin. >> all right, ryan, thank you. we bring in abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams. we know the stalker already convicted in criminal court. how strong is this civil suit? >> it's a very strong civil suit against him but he doesn't have money so the question is going to be, how strong a case is it against the franchise owner, against the management company, et cetera. that's where you're talking about the potential for deep pockets and the potential of a payout. this is really a case where we're going to talk about how much and who pays it more than was there any wrongdoing. >> when we say how much, she's asking for $75 million. >> $75 million. she had been asking for 10 million and increased it to $75 million. keep in mind for context here on average most wrongful death cases in civil court pay out $3 million to $5 million so when you're asking for $75 million in a case like this, it's an enormous number.
and certainly i would think more than she's going to get but, again, the question is going to be who has to pay it and do they have to all pay it together even though there's no question that he, the stalker is the person who is primarily responsible. >> which the hotel said this is terrible what happened. put it all on him. what is their defense? >> the question is was it negligent? did they do something? the defense says, look, he fooled us. he was an insurance executive. he knew how to play the game and ask the right room. her position is going to be, no, no, no, they should never have allowed had him to be in that room next to me and they should have found that peephole a lot earlier. >> as ryan said a couple more weeks and -- >> absolutely. >> thank you, dan. we move on to that florida woman behind bars for hiring a hit man to kill her husband. dalia dippolito is serving 20 years for the crime but now she's back in court taking the stand for the first time in a new bid for freedom. abc's linsey davis is tracking the case. good morning, linsey.
>> reporter: good morning, george. dippolito claims she was not trying to kill her husband. she says she was simply caught on tape discussing it because she was trying to get an acting job. her lawyer claims she was set up and the police department only cared about being on the reality tv show "cops." dalia dippolito is taking a stand for the first time facing a retrial for hiring a hit man to kill her husband of six months. >> i was afraid. >> reporter: her 2011 guilty verdict was overturned due to a tainted jury pool. >> he threatened me. he threatened to hurt me. he threatened to hurt my family. >> you know, he gets two in the head. >> i'm positive like 5,000% sure. >> reporter: dalia says she was acting during this video from a script that dalia, her then husband michael dippolito and former lover mohamed shihadeh had written for an acting project they planned to post on social media. >> this is something to be something you guys are going to put on line -- >> on social media, right, so we can try to get an acting job from it. >> so this is acting? >> yes. >> reporter: but prosecutors say
that was no act and alleged she paid an under undercover cop posing as a hit man $3,000 to kill her husband. >> is your husband michael? >> reporter: the real act investigators say was dippolito's reaction to these south florida police officers telling her this lie. >> i'm sorry to tell you, ma'am, he's been killed. >> no. >> reporter: but her lawyer claims the police were setting her up for an appearance on the reality show "cops." >> whether you like dalia dippolito or not, she's entitled to the same constitutional rights as you and i and this case is about a police department that tossed her under the bus for purposes of getting fame on a "cops" tv show. >> reporter: the boynton police say we are confident we have given the state attorney's office sufficient evidence to meet the state's burden and playing off the line dippolito said in that undercover video her ex-husband told police that he is 5,000% sure she was trying to kill him but she's sticking

between apple and the fbi over whether to unlock the phone of one of the san bernardino killers. apple is expected to tell a federal judge this week that congress, not the courts, should decide this case. apple will also argue that the government is improperly using an 18th century law to enforce -- to force, rather, the company to cooperate. and some startling video to show you from minnesota where this driver ignores the flashing lights at this railroad crossing and the train slams into the truck dragging it a quarter mile down those tracks, but the driver miraculously walked away without serious injuries. and it's being called the most life-like robot ever created. we want you to take a look at the newest creation from boston dynamics. the company's first robot that walks on two legs. here's the great equalizer. put it out in the snow, right. among its many talents, it can pick up ten-pound boxes with ease. and if it falls down -- i don't know if that's falling down. i think that's actually getting knocked down, it gets back up.
no human assistance required. i feel like this is a lesson in posture for all of us, though, how to pick up a ten-pound box, just a little reminder, up and down and when you get that, just follow the robot. >> well done. >> very lifelike. >> i actually am a robot. i bring the news to you. >> all right. >> that robot was pushed, robin. our investigation. >> that was pretty amazing. >> to be able to get up. hey, we have a major verdict that we want to tell you about, a big health battle. a st. louis jury awarding $72 million in damages to a woman's family after she claimed using talcum powder contributed to her development of ovarian cancer. abc's deborah roberts has the latest. >> reporter: it's a stunning judgment. the jury blaming giant johnson & johnson for a 62-year-old missouri mom's ovarian cancer. >> johnson & johnson spent a lot of time keeping this information from the public, and so this verdict allows other women to
make informed choices about the products that they buy. >> reporter: in court documents jackie fox said for over 35 years she used the company's shower to shower powder, which contains talcum, for her personal hygiene. the lawsuit linking it to her cancer. fox didn't live to claim her legal victory. she died last october after a 2 1/2-year battle with the disease. her son marvin salter stepped in as plaintiff. >> continuing with this trial was, indeed, you know, painful. but at the end of the day, it is, you know, it was what she wanted. >> reporter: in a statement to abc news, johnson & johnson said "the verdict goes against decades of sound science proving the safety of talc as a cosmetic ingredient in multiple products." the company plans to appeal the verdict while facing 1,200 similar lawsuits around the country. for "good morning america," deborah roberts, abc news, new york. >> and dr. jen ashton can't wait to weigh in. it's getting a lot of attention.
i was just seeing lara's reaction to this. what has been known in medical literature about the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer? >> so, robin, some historical context, in the year 2000 i was an intern. in the gyn world we knew that there were studies that showed a link between the genital use of talc powder and an increased risk of ovarian cancer. now, the data is all over the place, kind of inconclusive. some show a doubling of the risk, some show 20% increased risk, and some show no link. the theory is the pathway goes up into the uterus to the fallopian tubes and to the ovaries and causes damage there. and we don't really know. is it talc or is it another chemical in the powder that's doing this? >> is there anything -- you told us about how that happens. anything to do to reduce your risk? >> look, ovarian cancer, there are some things that we know are associated with a reduced risk. number one, women who take birth control pills, being on the pill conclusively known to drop the risk of ovarian cancer, having had children, breast-feeding,
also tying the fallopian tubes, getting a tubal ligation known to decrease the risk. all the buzz in the gyn cancer world is about the fact that the majority of ovarian cancer is now known to actually start in the fallopian tubes. >> so, you have got the attention of a lot of people at home right now who are listening to you, and are there symptoms? i mean, you know, a lot of people are going to be thinking it could possibly be something with them. >> you can control, because about 1 in 70 will get diagnosed with ovarian cancer, symptoms, bloating, pelvic pain and pressure, increase in urination, these are vague and common symptoms that affect a lot of women. if you notice a difference and you feel those symptoms every day for two weeks, call your gynecologist. >> i think people are going to be shocked this has been known for some time. >> suspected, yes. >> but not in the mainstream people knowing it but they do know now. >> let's get over to michael. thank you, robin. here's a look at what's coming up on the "gma morning menu." a parenting alert.
how social media could hurt your teenage girls, and i need to pay attention to that myself. and our oscars red carpet challenge is under way right now. rachel at samsung's 837 building with our beauty dream team. we can't wait to see the transformations that she's going to come with. i'm here with "fuller house" stars, candace cameron bure and jodie sweetin, but we're missing somebody. >> hola, michaelreno. >> i like how she said that. we got all that coming up live on "gma" here in times square. we got a real full house, it's fuller than it used to be.

was my age, so i thought i could trust him. >> reporter: but after ending the friendship she says the boy and one of his friends began writing hurtful things. >> i started getting messages from his friends and they were saying these things like you're ugly and cursing me out. >> reporter: her mom decided to do something about it. >> i spoke to this woman and i said, you know, your daughter is cyberbullying my child. she was shocked, embarrassed, made her own child get on the phone and apologize profusely. >> reporter: sales says it's having a major impact on how teenage girls socialize. >> something about the technology, though, does make it easier to relinquish responsibility for another person's feelings and the lives of girls, this is incredibly damaging and challenging sometimes. >> reporter: for "good morning america," katie couric in los angeles. >> real eye opening. >> yeah. >> we've had a conversation with this a lot with our girls. all the girls know you're not
supposed to go on kik. >> stay off it. >> stay off it. >> so telling they feel like if they're not on social media they don't have a life. that's the big part. it is, it is. another topic people are talking about, oscar sunday and our big "gma" after-party show is on monday and this morning, we've got secrets to getting red carpet ready. sam loves this. abc's rachel smith is at samsung 837 right now. before we get to her here's a look at the dream team that's helping real women get red carpet glam. >> reporter: it's hollywood's red hot oscar runway. >> beautiful. >> reporter: we assembled a red carpet dream team to make over three women with this season's award-winning beauty trends. charlotte tilbury is the makeup artist to stars like pierre knell pierre cruz, demi moore and alicia vikander. >> no difference in a celebrity and the rest of us. we're all just as gorgeous. >> reporter: glam squad's creative director giovanni vaccaro is the pro at recreating celeb hairstyles.

house" phenomenal. >> it's been 21 years since we said good-bye to one of america's all-time tv favorite family, the tanners from "full house," well, they're back and this time the women are in charge. look out, folks. the tanners are back. >> again? >> yes, again. >> reporter: we first met the "full house" gang in 1987 when they moved into friday nights with three kids. >> how rude. >> you've got it, dude. >> reporter: and three dudes. dad danny. >> i'd like to get the girls to bed before "good morning america." >> reporter: uncle jesse. and who doesn't love joey. so many growing up with d.j., stephanie and michelle. it may have gone off the air in 1995 but lived on in ever so popular reruns. now fast forward two decades. the tanner girls and that pestering next-door neighbor.
>> home, sweet home. >> reporter: are all grown up. >> talk to the hand, loser. oh, snap. you go, girl. >> reporter: set to bring down the house, this time around in the netflix sequel, "fuller house." >> we all still look good. so many great memories. my family and i used to watch this all the time. there is still so much laughter ahead and lara and sam, they're with the stars right now. >> so excited. we have goose bumps sitting in this set with three of the stars, candace, jodie, andrea for our exclusive reunion. guy, welcome back. >> thank you. >> how does it feel to be back together on camera. >> so awesome. >> we're loving it. >> asked you before. did we get this right? is this very similar to home? >> it is. very similar color scheme. the couch is a little bit bigger. >> too big. >> the couch is too big because the "fuller house" couch which is the original "full house" couch, it's been in storage for 20 years, it's actually a love seat. so how you fit four adults on
that thing i have no idea. >> was it always this small? then we realized we've grown. >> yes. >> smaller in those day. >> we dug this up. we found video, john stamos posted. do we have it? can we roll this video john posted. look at that. total throwback of the twins when they were very, very little. mary-kate and ashley. so what was it like for you guys? we love john stamos. he's always so fun when he comes. what is it like to work with uncle jesse? >> he's great. he's uncle j. to us. >> yeah. >> and he's -- you know, he's the executive producer on the show. >> oh, is that weird to see him boss man? >> he doesn't really act like a bossman. >> no. >> he's like family so i don't think we'd have that -- >> he loves to eat the craft service. >> who doesn't. >> i got to ask you this, we were talking about this as we were getting out of the car. forsome reason we were in a car this morning.
>> to look cool. >> 18 million people have just watched the trailer. this has got to be a sure sign that this show is already a hit, so how does that feel? >> oh, goodness, i'm like don't -- >> the couch, that was -- 18 million people watched a couch. so excited about it like i mean i don't think that any of us have ever seen anything like this for any television show let alone something that we're involved in and it's been such a huge part of our life. it's an incredible compliment and testament to the loyalty of "full house" fans. >> and what george said is so true also for my kids, what do you think about this show that we loved it growing up, now our kids have found it in reruns? i mean, is it your chemistry? is the premise? >> it's a combination. the chemistry is real, obviously, if you can't tell how close we are and how much we love each other, i mean it's all true and real and i think the show is classic and timeless in
the sense that it's about family and it's about love and those stories carry through to any and every generation. >> yeah, well said. so, should we binge-watch or should we watch it like a normal -- because now you guys have taken a classic and modernized it for the new audience. can you stream the whole season. >> well, you know, i think there's some fun stuff we were able to go like with carlying through some story lines that didn't have to be neatly tied up within 28 minutes like the old show so you can kind of watch a few episodes at a time but parents are also talking about that they're going to dole it out. you finish your homework and do your chores you can watch an episode of "fuller house." >> can we mention this guy. you're traveling with a big furry dog. there was a big furry dog in the show. the dog is plow everywhere. same dog, different dog, i just got to know. >> well, could it not be the same dog. time has passed. >> he's aged even better than john tame moss. >> all right.
i don't mean to bring everybody down. let's go to the clip. >> we planned this whole night for you. you have to go out and have some fun. >> i have fun. >> yeah, just last night i stuck my tongue out at tommy and he stuck his ton out at me. it was hilarious. >> come on, deej, let yourself have adult fun. i'm officially naming the three of us the she wolfpack. ow! >> don't ever do that in public. >> ow! >> first time i did that it scared the little baby in the scene. they had to take it off the set. >> make her cry. we have a surprise for you guys. >> okay. >> do you recognize this voice. hello, are you out there. >> hello, caller. >> yes, i am. it's very early where i am. >> hey. >> hi. >> you're a good man, bob saget.
thanks for skyping in with us. >> he's skyping. >> my pleasure. i love skyping. i'm in a bunker in northern california. >> location unknown. >> just because you can, of course, bob, just because you can. so, really -- what's the feeling like on the set. this feels like family here to us. did it feel that way when you guys all got back together? >> yeah, we all have said this in the press. we've never really spent time apart. it'll be a year maybe that goes by at the most over the past 25 years. we go to dinner. we see each other and we're good friends. we all help each other. god knows they've helped me over the years. >> that's so nice. bob, what's the biggest difference on the set, obviously the age but tell me about what it feels like, just give us a sampling of what it's like, a day in the life. >> well, i have the same acting method that i used to have on "full house" which is candace and jodie and andrea help me with my lines. >> that's true. >> what does that mean? you forget them and they help
you. >> he hides scripts. >> you walk in a room and say what's going on, sometimes you can't remember that -- i would write it down on a pencil. you know, anywhere. i'd write it on a note. >> sometimes we just say, bob, just stand here. stand here. this is where you are. >> i love it. >> they're always there for you. >> my spot walking over there. come back here. >> i'm going to look for that from now on because he's reading it off the plate. that's something i'll look for. >> not anymore. i did a couple episodes and i think i got my act back as danny tanner. trying to get back into that character. i took a departure from that kind of pious man. he's a good man. >> he is -- >> he is a good man. >> he is. >> you are too, bob. >> we love you. >> ah, the girls love you. >> so do we, bob saget. we have viewer questions too. listen to this, ladies. do you think that your characters turned out the way you thought they would when "full house" ended >> that's good actually.
>> yes, i think mine has. d.j. is the oldest daughter so always responsible and nurturing and she's kind of the head of this family and she's a veterinarian and i think that was a cool job for her. so, yeah. >> kimmy gibbler is just as zany as she was back in the '90s. she he's matured a little and i think her wardrobe has improved. >> i love the skirt -- i don't know if it's a dress but love it. you look great today. >> yeah, stephanie is still kind of fun and wild and edgy hasn't lost her really sharp wit and, you know, comedic timing so she's a lot of fun to play all these years later. >> so what's great about that older fans will recognize all of you and think this is appropriate when they see the show. all right, so katrina on twitter asks what is your favorite thing about actually being back on the set? >> it's just showing up to work. >> yeah. >> the three of us, andrea had us all made -- had coffee cups made for us that had our
character names on them so we walk around with deej, stephanie and kimmy gibbler, coffee cups and such a pleasure i can't even express to work with your best friends every day is unbelievable. >> we truly know that. >> ah. we feel it. you're right. it's a joy that so many people don't get a chance to talk about. so when you talk about it and it feels real everybody knows it. ladies, thank you very much for being here. >> thank you. >> this girl has to get to work. >> i got to go to "the view." >> watch her on "the view." great to see you. we'll be watching. please come back to "gma" any time in thank you. >> hang on. we'll do a little weather. i actually feel like we might start out west and do a little san francisco weather. why not. so hang out and jump in if you want. >> read this. very important. >> thanks to pour our sponsor netflix we were able to replicate the living room. it premieres this friday. >> whoo. >> how did i do on a cold read?

bill gates is on a mission, the microsoft co-founder turned philanthropist is speaking out about the fbi's encryption battle against apple saying he believes a solution is all about striking a balance between civil liberties and governmental safeguards but when bill and his wife melinda stopped by earlier
this week, they had something else on their minds and had a chance to speak with them about their foundation's annual letter and the issues they care deeply about. a delight to have you both with us. thank you. [ applause ] and there's no applause sign. that came from the heart. so appreciate the letter that you all put out every year and, bill, you decided to do something different this year to direct it to teens like we have here in the studio with us right now. what was the purpose behind that. >> well, the initial inspiration came from high school newspaper where they interviewed us and asked us what superpower would we like to have? and we were kind of surprised when melinda talked about time and i talked about energy, that those really do relate to the inequity that we've got to solve in the world, and so it's the young generation that's got the innovation and perspective that
will help drive what probably will take a generation or more to fully achieve? that's the purpose of having these teens here the next generation, more energy. your superpower, more time as it applies to women around the world. >> if you poll young teens today, they think that women are going to be different in the home 15 years from now, different than their grandmother's generation but it's actually not true especially when you look at this unpaid work that women do at home. >> and that disparity in time impacts all of us, doesn't it? >> it absolutely does. and when i talk about unpaid work, it's some of the caring things we want to do at home like care for our children and the elderly but things like chores and if you are spending your time particularly in the developing world carrying water, chopping wood or even in the u.s. doing laundry or chores it means you don't reach your potential. >> we want to get some of the solutions you are suggesting but first, bill, more energy. tells why that is your superpower you want. >> well, energy is probably more
fundamental than people realize. life started really improving a few hundred years ago when we got energy and so the idea that you can just flip that light switch, that's pretty magical. we all take that for granted and yet there's several billion people who don't have it. >> for you both let's lay out some ideas and solutions especially as the next generation is here in front and happening on every single word that you're saying, so when it comes to more time, what are some of the things you're proposing. >> well, first of all recognize the amount of time women are paying on unpaid work then reduce it and redistribute it inside of the household. if we do those three things both at a policy level and directly in our homes, it fundamentally trance fors society because you open up women's potential. >> so where is gabe? okay, gabe, what's your question. >> i have a question for bill. so, we all know about wind and solar technologies. but i'm wondering, what other technologies are you excited
about that are less well known. >> well, it's a very good question. wind and solar, if we could bring the price down even more dramatically and be able to store that energy because it's intermittent that's one path to a solution, another path is instead of taking the sun and making electricity which is hard to store, to directly make gasoline, so it may come in a form that we don't recognize as one of our key sources right now. >> as i'm a citizen of a developing country, pakistan, i've seen girls go through a lot of obstacles this their careers so i wanted to ask how do you suggest them to overcome this problem of energy and how do you think that would help them succeed? >> first, recognizing this is a problem and using your voice and political participation. i would say in terms of reducing this inequity, go into stem fields whether it's science, math, technology.
innovations that help women spend less time cooking or less time gathering water or washing machine that works more efficiently and lastly, i would say redistribute the workload in your own home. you need to talk with your partner even before you're married about whose roles and responsibilities, what are the hidden expectations of this work. >> you saw her husband was looking at her as she was responding, nodding. >> we've had that conversation. >> thank you very much for your question. nolan, you'll have the final question. >> so how can the simple act of turning off the faucet or even the lights greatly affect how we save our energy on a larger scale? >> well, i think it's important we're aware that americans use twice as much energy per person than even the other well-to-do countries and so if you get that mind-set of how do we conserve it you help with the local water shortage. you save money, so awareness is where it all begins and conservation is a piece of what we need to do.
>> oh, well, bill and melinda gates, thank you very much. thank you all. the students were just, i mean, leaning in. >> great conversation. >> had a very good conversation like that and it's just, boy, what would your superpower be? just think about it. you can read bill and melinda gates' full letter at our website, hey pal? you ready? can you pick me up at 6:30? ah...
