7:01 am
>> the star-studded tributes from jennifer hudson, stevie wonder. ♪ and sheila e.'s showstopper. ♪ and good morning, america. i'll say it was a blow-out. how about those b.e.t. awards. >> great to have you back, george. >> good to be back. >> i think sheila e. is still drumming away. what -- i mean, just such powerful performances. sheila e. and the woman beside her, we showed her picture, that's prince's ex-wife mayte, and it was a powerful moment and much more on that coming up. that's the two of them right there. we'll begin with the fallout from the big brexit vote. britain's vote to break from europe. there you see secretary of state john kerry, he's heading to london for meetings today and here at the home the u.s. is focused on the financial markets. the dow is open.
7:02 am
rebecca jarvis with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, george. that's right, the sell-off is continuing today. the dow down now 200 points for the trading day, that turbulence not quite as bad as what happened on friday. when the markets sold off 2 dll trillion across global markets. one trader put it to me, friday was an earthquake, now we're experiencing the aftershocks. uncertainty remains whether other countries will follow in britain's footsteps. that's a key question on wall street's minds. could other countries in europe be next? the extent of the weakness in the global economy. goldman sachs said they expect uk to dip into recession as early as next year. that could have consequences next year and in your 401 ks.
7:03 am
>>. george to the fallout overseas. britain's historic decision to leave the ueu shaking up not just the markets but the whole political landscape. now, millions are signing a petition asking for another chance. abc's terry moran has the latest, joins us this morning again from london. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. well, people are in shock here. it's all anyone can talk about and they're worried about what happens next to their jobs, to their house prices, to their savings and as you point out, there are millions in britain who want another chance. they're clamoring for another vote. this morning in britain, buyers' remorse. millions of people looking for a do-over. >> people need to reconsider and i think it would be great to have another vote. >> reporter: more than 3 million people here have signed a petition demanding another referendum on whether britain should leave the european union. >> i think it's ludicrous to have another referendum. we can't just keep going, can
7:04 am
you? we have to move on. >> reporter: britain's political system is in chaos. there is no plan on how to get out of the eu and businesses are freezing investment and hiring plunging markets into turmoil. early this morning the uk finance minister trying to calm things down. >> it will not be plain sailing in the days ahead but let me be clear, you should not underestimate our resolve. we were prepared for the unexpected and we are equipped for whatever happens. >> reporter: and former london mayor boris johnson who wants to be the next prime minister also desperate to calm the waters. >> people's pensions are safe. the pound is stable. the markets are stable. >> reporter: but emotions are so intense here right now. listen to this voter on the bbc firing a question at a panel of politicians. >> after decades of ignoring the working class, how does it feel to be punched in the nose? [ applause ]
7:05 am
>> reporter: well, with all that emotion and turmoil there are real consequences for the u.s. britain's is america's closest ally in the world, especially in europe, so, on free trade, on terrorism, on standing up to russia that relationship is weakened. as one official said when vladimir putin is cheering, you know you've got a problem. george. >> yeah, a lot to sort through. okay, terry, thanks very much. and that brexit vote hit home in the race for the white house. both hillary clinton and donald trump using it to score political points as our new poll shows clinton with a double-digit lead over trump. that's a big change from last month's dead-heat. tom llamas has the latest on that. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump has been busy on twitter in the last 24 hours after quite the weekend in scotland. trump saying he predicted brexit correctly going after clinton who wanted britain to stay in the eu. this morning, donald trump who loves to brag about polls in his favor slamming a new one that shows him losing ground. trump tweeting the abc news/"washington post" poll that
7:06 am
shows him trailing hillary clinton by double digits is a "dirty" poll and that the poll sample is heavy on democrats. both news organizations standing by the poll. meanwhile, over the weekend trump was in scotland. >> we're going to go up to the 14th tee if anybody wants to see, they say, one of the great sights of the world. >> reporter: slamming clinton while inspecting his golf resorts. >> i'm lowering taxes. the difference is hillary is raising taxes. >> reporter: the presumptive republican nominee claiming clinton was hiding from the media because of brexit. >> she called brexit 100% wrong, hillary, and she's embarrassed to go in front of the camera. >> reporter: the clinton campaign seizing on the sights and sounds of trump's scotland trip while europe was in a brexit-induced economic tailspin. >> every president is tested by world events. but donald trump thinks about how his golf resort can profit from them. >> when the pound goes down, more people are coming to turnberry. brand-new sprinkler system, the
7:07 am
highest level. >> he's talking about his sprinkler system. >> reporter: on sunday, clinton firing back on camera criticizing trump's embrace of brexit. >> no one should be confused about america's commitment to europe, not an autocrat in the kremlin, not a presidential candidate on a scottish golf course. >> reporter: and today hillary clinton hitting the campaign trail with senator elizabeth warren for the first time, both women will be campaigning in the important battleground state of ohio. george. >> always the key. okay, tom, thanks very much. let's bring in our political analyst matthew dowd to talk more about this. matt, let's dig into the poll more and i want to put up another number from the poll right there. asked whether voters asked whether they think donald trump is qualified to be president. 64% say no, that is a new high. yesterday when i was speaking to the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell, he wouldn't even say outright that trump is qualified. that's the number trump has to turn around. >> yeah, that's absolutely the number he has to turn around in this poll. i think the other part of this
7:08 am
poll, george, that i think is important is the divisions that exist throughout this. throughout this election right now, it is white voters overwhelmingly for donald trump, nonwhite voters overwhelmingly for hillary clinton. older voters for donald trump. younger voters for hillary clinton. the educated voters for hillary clinton, high school voters for donald trump. it is an election that's totally driven by the divisions in the country and if donald trump is going to win this election and come back from being behind, he'll have to figure out a way to sort of lower the gaps. >> the question now is, how does he do it? he has the convention coming up in july but he has a huge money deficit, huge financial deficit versus the clinton campaign and their allied super pacs as well. so, the trump campaign just getting started, they say, but they have a huge job ahead. >> yeah, they do. i think one of the problems -- he is right to say is the poll -- is he behind double digits i don't think he is. i think he's probably seven or
7:09 am
eight points is where this race really stands when you look at the average of this but it's never a good strategy to attack polls. it's really never a good strategy to talk about polls at all. the next thing he's probably going to say is the only poll that matters is election day. usually that means a campaign is in disarray. if i were donald trump in this campaign i would figure out how to change the story line in the next few days. the best way to do that is start leaking out who you're talking to for the vp and who you're talking to as convention speakers. he needs to change the way this story is going because right now it's all in hillary clinton's direction. >> and that might help him as well. you talk about reaching out to minorities and other voters, but he still has a job to do unifying republicans in the poll, only 77% of republicans supporting trump. >> well, that's -- george, i think his biggest worry if the story sticks that he's double digits behind going into the convention. he has to figure out how to bring all the republicans together long before he gets to the independents bu s --
7:10 am
at a convention where there is a lot of delegates there who are reluctant to embrace him, he can't get in the position where it looks like he's going to lose to hillary clinton, that's why he's in such a concerted way trying to fight back against these polls. >> we'll see what he does this week. thanks very much. we move on now to that scary moment overnight for hundreds on board an overseas flight. itss wing and engine as you see bursting into flames after an emergency landing. firefighters racing to the scene. abc's david kerley has the latest, joins us at reagan national airport in d.c., good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. passengers knew something was wrong. they were turning back to the airport they left from. but as soon as they landed everything changed. suddenly and dramatically. this is what passengers looking out their window saw. overnight, the dramatic video of a singapore airlines wing on fire and extensive blaze after an emergency landing back in singapore. from a distance the flames and smoke were stunning. >> any pilot that looks at these videos would be stunned. this is a very dangerous situation. it's a fuel-fed fire. this could have been catastrophic.
7:11 am
>> reporter: the milan-bound boeing 777 was just two hours into its journey when the pilot reported a warning light. so the singapore pilots turned back. just after touching down, that right wing and the engine ablaze. one passenger describing the moments right after landing saying, quote, i just escaped death. huge fire was burning. it was a heart-wrenching five minutes. we were so close to death. that passenger says the hardest part was waiting for firefighters who were quickly on the scene to put out the fire with foam. >> sometimes these fuel leaks develop after the airplane is airborne and they can occur if there is a maintenance malpractice or perhaps something broke, perhaps a fuel line broke. >> reporter: none of the 240 on board was hurt but look at the wing. the melted metal. the signs of how intense that fire was on the jet's wing. so, why would this happen just after landing? well, if it was a fuel leak while the plane is flying, george, the fuel is being blown away. once it stops that fuel can drop on to hot pieces of metal and ignite into flames. >> boy, it could have been so much worse.
7:12 am
okay, david, thanks very much. we move on to that scary accident in an amusement park where a roller coaster jumped the tracks suddenly passengers plunging to the ground, injuring ten. abc's alex marquardt is on the scene in scotland with the latest on that. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, george, that's right. that's that roller coaster back there. the red and white one, it's called tsunami. neither the park or authorities said what caused the derailment that left this morning five in the hospital, including three children, who were seriously wounded. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: the horrifying moments right after the roller coaster went flying off the rails. the riders trapped upside down. other parkgoers rushing over to help followed by the paramedics. >> i turned around and all i could see was one of the carriages on top of one of the other rides. >> give them some space. >> reporter: in all ten were injured and taken to the hospital. eight of them children. as the coaster flew off the track, two people on the ground were hit. >> kids running back to their mums as i was going forward to look for my son.
7:13 am
>> reporter: the ride called tsunami can reach speeds of 40 miles per hour as the roller coaster rounded a turn all five of the feet-dangling coaster cars went crashing to the ground, plummeting nearly 20 feet. last summer four people were injured in this london amusement park after a car full of thrill seekers went slamming into an empty car stuck on the tracks. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: this video in texas showing a young girl being thrown from a ride. statistically park rides are very safe and in the united states the association of amusement parks says the chances of being injured are 1 in 24 million. but in scotland this morning, many questions remain as an investigation is launched into what caused this roller coaster to derail. this is not the first time that this park and this roller coaster in particular have faced a serious issue, back in 2011 riders were stuck on it for nine hours. this morning this park remains closed.
7:14 am
no word on when it will re-open. robin. >> alex, thank you. a violent showdown on the steps of california's state capital. police in riot gear were called in when a fight broke out between a white supremacist group and hundreds of protesters during a rally. some people in the crowd swinging bats, beating each other to the ground, ten people were injured, some of them stabbed. two people suffered life-threatening injuries. both sides blame each other for starting the fight. police did not report any arrests overnight. and more heavy rain is expected in west virginia today. at least 25 deaths are now blamed on the historic flooding in that state. crews are still searching for more victims. hundreds of homes destroyed. entire neighborhoods buried in mud and today's rain could trigger more flash floods, thousands have no power or running water despite the adversity one man who lost his home said his town is now coming together like never before. ginger's forecast is coming up in just a moment. but, lara has the other big story of the night. >> it was a night to remember from beyonce to prince, b.e.t.

7:19 am
>> good monday morning. i am meteorologist mike nicco with the bay area forecast. haiti alert today and tomorrow inland. hitting triple digits and clear and comfortable and cooling sea breeze by the weekend. today, 60s along the coast, and 70s and 80s an the bay, and 90s and 100s inland. for news check out the temperatures, 50s and low 60s. my seven-day outlook shows back to average but it will take each day until the welcome to unfortunately, we have more rain headed to that part of west virginia devastated, again, it will be 1 to 3 inches. it's not as much but anything on that saturated soil they don't need. >> are the purple shoes for prince? >> they're totally for prince.

7:21 am
decision, george, you're absolutely right. the biggest abortion decision in a quarter century. previously it was known in constitutional law that a woman has right to choose to terminate a pregnancy. an undue burden, texas tested that. they added two requirements abortion doctor must have admitting privileges at nearby hometown and where you perform an abortion the same facilities as a mini-hospital. that closed about half or more than half of the abortion providers in texas. and today the supreme court said that went too far, texas put an undue burden on a woman's right to choose. justice steven breyer taking that law one at a time. trying to protect woman's health wasn't enough. it simply prevented women from
7:22 am
choosing their constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy. in dissent, justice thomas and justice samuel alito, this was a 5-3 decision. justice antonin scalia, not in this case. this is a major victory for pro-choice advocates. the conservative effort in state after state to limit abortions through things like a woman must get a son gram or a conversation with a doctor about abortion before she chooses to have an abortion, that those are now under threat and the campaign to limit abortions through public health issues that has been dealt a serious blow in this case. >> okay, terry moran thanks. mary bruce is at the supreme court right now. mary, this certain to go right to the heart of the presidential campaign. we have already heard from
7:23 am
former secretary of state hillary clinton. >> absolutely, this ruling underscores what's at stake in this presidential campaign. first major case to be heard since the death of justice scalia. since they won't consider the vacancy of for that slot. hillary clinton saying on twitter said this fight isn't over. the next president has to protect woman's health. meanwhile the consequence of this decision is being felt in all of the emotion here. abortion rights advocate are celebrating. many of these people have been lining up to witness this in person. for all the jubilation there's profound disappointment from supporters of this all who felt this was necessary to protect women's health. >> i'm sure we'll be hearing from donald trump as well soon. we'll return now to regular
7:24 am
programming. for many of you that's "good morning america." get a full wrap up tonight on "world news." have a good day. >> announcer: this has been a now from abc 7 news. >> good morning. it is 7:24. i'm reggie aqui. an oakland police suv burst in to flames after it slammed in to another vehicle as they were doing a suspect pursuit. you see the crash there. it happened at 30th avenue. one officer with uz injured. the suspect was captured a short distance away. let's see what traffic looks like this morning. >> how's it going? >> pretty swell. traffic moving at 35 to 45 miles an hour on the san mateo bridge. we have a high wind advisory for the span as well.

the olympics and simone biles is the one to watch. simone biles, the gymnast, took home her fourth straight u.s. championship overnight. will she go for gold in rio? i say you bet. we're going to break it down on the big board coming up. >> that gymnastics team is so strong in rio. but we'll begin with the latest on the so-called slender man case. a mother now speaking out after her daughter and another girl were charged with stabbing a friend 19 times to please a fictional character. arguing her daughter should be tried as a child not an adult. abc's linsey davis is here with more. good morning, linsey. >> good morning, robin. angie geyser says she's finally talking about this publicly two years after her daughter's arrest to show the world that her daughter is not a monster. and she still holds out hope for her daughter's future. >> she was just always such a gentle and kind person. >> reporter: this morning, angie geyser is speaking out for the first time since her daughter morgan was charged with attempted intentional homicide for allegedly stabbing her
7:32 am
friend 19 times, all to impress slender man, a fictional internet character. >> is there any bleeding going on? >> her clothing has got blood on it. >> reporter: morgan geyser and anissa weier were both just 12 when prosecutors say they lured their friend 12-year-old payton leutner into the woods in may of 2014 stabbing her with a kitchen knife and leaving her to die. payton survived and now geyser and weier are both being charged as adults. the teens are appealing that ruling which could send them to prison for up to 65 years. geyser is now fighting to get her daughter's case tried in juvenile court where her maximum sentence would be three years in a juvenile prison. >> you can't hold somebody responsible for the rest of their life for something they did when they were 12. >> reporter: while morgan was in custody she was diagnosed with early onset schizophrenia, a condition geyser says her husband suffers from. >> i don't think that there were any glaring, obvious clues that
7:33 am
she was ill. >> reporter: earlier this month morgan was moved from a wisconsin juvenile detention center to a state mental hospital where she's undergoing treatment. something her mother said has helped. >> with this lucidity that she's developed comes an awareness of the gravity of her situation so she misses home. she misses her family. >> reporter: weier meanwhile remains at that detention center on $500,000 bail. the leutner family tells abc news if tried as juveniles there's a likelihood that both assailants would already have been released with little to no supervision and their records expunged. their premeditated attack was with the hope of killing our daughter. we fully support the efforts of the district attorney in this case. a not guilty plea was entered on both of the girls' behalfs. geyser's attorney tells abc news he remains optimistic they will send to juvenile court which
7:34 am
would change the outcome of the case and the course of these girls' lives. robin. >> all right, linsey, and that's why we're going to talk to abc chief legal analyst dan abrams about this. the mom's plea, very impassioned wanting to transfer it to juvenile court. will the diagnosis make any difference? >> so, this is all about the appeals court and the problem for her is that the law is pretty clear. which is, if you're over the age of 10 in wisconsin and you commit this kind of crime, it is presumed to be in adult court. now, what she's arguing is, look, we can get her better treatment, mental health treatment, in a juvenile facility than in adult court, and they're also arguing there are other extenuating circumstance that should lead this appellate court to say let's send it to juvenile court but it's a tough argument but the most important one in this case. >> if it holds up and it does take place in adult court, will the diagnosis -- how will that play with the jury, do you think. >> see, this is where i think
7:35 am
her age could really help her which is she combines a mental health defense which would have to be insanity. she didn't understand what she was doing was wrong, in conjunction with her age, it makes it a more compelling argument. we talk about the insanity defense a lot and it's always such a long shot being able to demonstrate you literally didn't understand what you were doing was wrong. in a case like this, there's a real argument when you've got someone this young who has a diagnosis of mental health problems, i think, that an insanity defense could have a real shot. >> and her mom, no surprise that she's against somebody so young being in an adult court but there are others feel that same way. >> that's right, so, the question becomes state by state talk to your legislators which is if you think this law is wrong, which is that anyone over the age of 10 charged with a crime like murder, attempted murder should be sent to adult court, then you have to change the law. the judges only have limited ability once the law like this is on the books. >> thank you. we move on now to that

terrifying encounter for "top gun" star kelly mcgillis. she came face-to-face with a stalker at home and had to fight to break free and it was caught on a 911 call. abc's gio benitez has the story. >> it's too fast. it's a little bit too aggressive. >> reporter: she's the actress best known for wooing tom cruise in the movie "top gun," but this morning kelly mcgillis is recovering from a real-life drama. >> help me! >> reporter: that's mcgillis calling 911 while fighting off an alleged attacker inside her own home. >> what's going on there ma'am? >> i have somebody in my house. >> what is your address? >> she's beating me up! >> what is your address? >> please help me! >> what is your address? >> reporter: mcgillis says she found 38-year-old laurence dorn hiding in her north carolina home just a few days ago and says the woman started scratching and hitting her, accusing the actress of stalking her on twitter. >> we fought for awhile and i was screaming at the top of my
7:37 am
lungs, what have i done to deserve this? what have i done? >> reporter: what's more, mcgillis says dorn wasn't alone. that she brought her young daughter to the star's home. >> the thing that i feel really, really angry and sad about is the fact that she had a 6-year-old girl with her who had to be a part of all that. it's horrible. i can't even think -- i can't even wrap my mind around that. >> reporter: the 58-year-old finally breaking free escaping from the home and flagging down a nearby driver. >> a woman has just pulled me over and she said that someone has broken in her house. >> reporter: this morning the actress left scratched, bruised and traumatized. her alleged attacker is out on a $65,000 bond. >> i've never seen her. i hate to use that word celebrity stalker because i'm not really a celebrity. i live a very quiet, low-key life in a log cabin in north carolina.
7:38 am
>> reporter: and dorn is now facing charges of burglary, assault and stalking. she has not responded to our request for comment. meanwhile, mcgillis tells us she has since deleted all of her social media accounts. >> makes sense. gio, thanks very much. let's go over to lara. >> thank you, george. coming up on our big board, how will brexit affect the presidential campaign in the u.s. and kanye west pushing the envelope. does his new video go too far? and michael phelps' attempt to go for gold again and make olympic history. we'll be back with the big board in two minutes. be back with the big board in two minutes. process wreaks havoc on your clothes thrashing them 3,000 times every wash. crushing them with 60 times the g-force of a rocket launch and baking them in a dryer that can get hot enough... ...to cook ribs. detergent alone is not enough. add downy fabric conditioner...

it's time for our "big board" here with our team of insiders to take on today's top stories. we'll begin with all the fallout from that big vote in britain to leave the european union. bombshell vote there on thursday being felt all over the world and we want to talk about it with matthew dowd. he's back as well and saw hillary clinton, matt, put out a
7:41 am
new campaign ad taking on donald trump's response from that golf course in scotland and then trump tweeted his response saying, clinton is trying to wash away her bad judgment call on brexit with big dollar ads. disgraceful. trump is hoping that same kind of anger you saw in england over immigration, over political elites, will be to his benefit here in the united states. >> well, yes, george, i think what this is -- brexit isn't the cause of the problem but brexit is a symptom of what's going on around the world which is a sense there is a large group of people in the world that have felt left out of the globalization and are frustrated and angry in the course of this. it's absolutely fascinating to me. we thought we'd be talking about iraq or syria exit strategy and we're talking about a brexit strategy in the course of this and i think it's going to unfold all the way to election day. >> so, matt, i want to ask you, how effective is using brexit for clinton and for trump? does this help or hurt either one of them? >> well, i think there's a

two-edge sword, and each are falling on the side they think will benefit them. for donald trump it's basically i was for this. i saw this coming and, therefore, elect me because hillary clinton is out of touch and doesn't see these things coming. that's his message, and to adopt also the populist part of the brexit strategy. hillary clinton wants to say, listen, we're in troubling times, there's an international thing going on. this could damage our economy and we can't put somebody in charge which in her mind is not temperamentally ready to be president and i think that's the fight over this message and whoever wins that argument will have a leg going up into november. >> thank you so much. want to get now to kanye west's controversial new music video. if you haven't seen it yet, it is something. it's what he's calling art visual. it's a song "famous" depicting 12 celebrities lying naked together in a bed. we have joe levy from "rolling stone" contributing editor joining us right now. joe, why is there so much brouhaha over this art? >> why is there so much brouhaha over this video? this is the song in which he
7:43 am
claims that he made taylor swift famous in and uses the "b" word when referring to her and when referring to her and you're talking about 12 naked celebrities. controversial celebrities -- bill cosby, george w. bush, donald trump, rihanna lying next to chris brown. this is deliberately provocative and it's enough to make anybody squeamish. >> ultimate click bait. you could name anybody in that bed, joe, so the question is what more is kanye trying to say? we know he knows how to get attention. >> he sure does know how to get attention and he's getting it here but i think that this video is an art statement. he sees it as more of a painting, a living painting than a video. it's a comment on celebrities and a comment on media, the old saying is celebrities put on their pants one leg at a time. here the idea is they take them off one leg at a time too. this is -- it's really up to you how you see it but it's really about our own fascination with these people. >> and we prove it by going on
7:44 am
and watching it and talking about it. okay, joe, thanks very much. we're going to move on now to michael phelps, world's most decorated olympian going for gold once again, the trials under way in nebraska right now. he is a virtual lock to make the team. we're going to talk to summer sanders who's yahoo!'s olympic contributor and this is going to be a record fifth olympics for michael phelps. what kind of impact do you expect from him in rio? >> well, like you said, george, first he has to make the team. and that quest begins on tuesday with the 200 butterfly in omaha but any time michael phelps is on the pool deck the level of the game is raised and honestly i think the rest of the world wants to say that they beat michael phelps and this may be their last chance and that fuels his fire. so he absolutely could win gold. everybody will be bringing their "a" game but he loves to race in that position. >> absolutely. summer, it's lara. as you just said he loves to win, he's 31 years old which i guess is old in swimming standards, sounds pretty good to me but, you know, he has a brand-new baby. do you think as a swimmer, as an
7:45 am
olympic athlete that that helps him focus or does it become a distraction? >> you know, i've known michael phelps since 2000 and in 2000 he was just a young kid, right? this little pipsqueak at his first games, i've never seen him so happy and happiness is quite powerful especially when you translate that into the pool. so, you know, it's funny to say that i think he's swimming with incredible confidence because here's a guy who's won more medals than anybody else but that's really a special time for him so i do see happy michael phelps and a very powerful michael phelps. somebody i have not seen in a long time. >> not a pipsqueak anymore. >> no. >> i know, right. >> you're settled in the rest of your life and you're swimming or doing whatever it is you're doing because it makes you happy, not because you feel you have to. i love that. >> that's real. i think the dad strength is real -- he's swimming for other people now which is pressure off his shoulders. there's a bigger purpose. >> it's going to be so much fun to watch him and also this next
7:46 am
young lady, summer, got to ask you about simone biles, the one to watch in terms of gymnastics on a team that is so deep, apparently the u.s. team is just incredible. she's just won her fourth consecutive u.s. championship, what is your take on this rising star? >> i know, so, 1984, my first olympics to witness, i wanted to be mary lou retton, lara. >> me too. >> right. this is like gymnastics is beautiful and we see these new stars every four years but she really is special and even from the other gymnasts on the team they say she is in a league all her own, she won her fourth u.s. nationals, that's not been time four times in a row since 1974 and the second place finisher, aly raisman, was nearly four points behind her which is a huge, huge margin. i think the possibilities are endless for simone. it's just how much does simone want it and how big of a moment does she want to have? >> and can she handle the heat in rio? >> seems like she can. >> no kidding.
7:47 am
no kidding. all right, i want to say thank you to summer, great yo see you, thank you to joe, thank you to matt, and we have so much more coming up in two minutes. it's our hot shot, george. this is the day that you always look forward to. we want you all to meet the world's ugliest dog, a victor, if you will. sweepee rambo is live next on "gma." ♪ i'm on the right path baby 'm on the right path baby ♪

8:31 am
mad libs with a special road trip to find america's favorite adjective and we happen to be on the first stop so fans can write their favorite words right here on the special mad libs car. fill in the blanks and so what should we put? it's always a what morning. fantastic. fantastic morning, robin. it always is. we're kicking off shark week with two resilient shark survivors who had counters with them, hunter treschl and motivational speaker paul de gelder are jumping back in the water for "sharks among us." gentlemen, great to see you both. let me get this straight, hunter, so you had this encounter with the shark. you're handling it really well but six months later you get a call saying, hey, you know those sharks that you had an encounter with, do you want to get in the water with them? how did that conversation go? >> yeah, so initially it was, you know, something i wasn't too keen on because as you said it was like six months later, but as i began to think about it i thought -- i started thinking
8:32 am
about it this is not so much getting back in the water with the shark that bit my arm off but more so it's like this great experience that not everybody gets to have so that's just kind of how i viewed the whole thing. >> and paul got you in on it. i think you were on the program and you just like that said, hey, hunter, go on a dive with me. how did his mom handle it? >> mom was not a huge fan of it. yeah, she was a little bit nervous about it but when they came out to the bahamas we sat down and had dinner and i explained the whole process and how safe it would be and she came around enough to let him jump in the cage and he was in like that. >> how was it being in the water, hunter? >> it was great. it was a bit kind of scary at first. i mean as you'd expect. but that was like maybe the first two or three minutes and after that i really began to appreciate like, wow, these are some really cool animals and getting to see them up close is really awesome. >> that was the purpose behind this, paul. craig o'connell, people know him if you know sharks you know this guy and so he's working on something to help repel the
8:33 am
sharks in a nonharmful way. >> he's created this amazing barrier and works in two ways as a physical barrier and it's not hugely strong, it's not hugely protective just some pvc pipes anchored to the bottom of the ocean and doesn't look that strong but there's a second means to deter the sharks from going through it. uses super powerful magnets which react to the gel sacks in them and they react against each other and repel them away and have this physical barrier to stop the sharks and then you have the electromagnetic repulsion system of the magnets as well. really ingenious. >> the way you explain it so well. i'm mesmerized but that is important so because you both are quick to point out you don't use the word attack. you say that you had an encounter with the sharks because as you said it, paul, you're in their backyard so to speak. >> exactly right. you know, my life was inherently dangerous. i know hunter didn't ask for this but i accepted the risks of
8:34 am
my life, motorcycles, bombs, helicopters, guns, sharks, so i don't blame the shark. having had the experience to work with amazing people like craig you learn so much about the important role they play in the oceans and you learn to appreciate them more and more so i'm all for protecting the sharks. >> and that's what shark week is about. how has it been for you, hunter? i know you used to use your left hand, you were a lefty, and you said that has been a bit of a transition having to earn to use your right hand. >> yeah, it was slow at first especially with writing. but, you know, i'm sure you've tried writing with our off hand, once you're no longer given that option, it becomes sort of an oh, i have to do this now and it gets easier. you don't have that mental block anymore in you've been so uplifting and, paul, i know you're a motivational speaker. we won't show the pictures because word on the street is 43 people have fainted seeing your pictures when you first got to the hospital after your encounter. >> i've been doing it for a couple of years and over the
8:35 am
past few years i've had 43 people pass out, 39 men, and even though i give them fair warning and i make very lighthearted of the situation, yeah, they still pass out occasionally. i had six people once pass out at a microsoft 10 launch. they said it was the best conference they ever had. >> the best one. >> once they woke up again. >> exactly. paul and hunter, great to see you both and thank you for the awareness you're bringing about and the manner in which you're doing it. really appreciate it. >> you can see "sharks among us" tonight and shark week all week on the discovery channel. back out to lara. >> thank you very much. "the bfg" is one of the most beloved children's books of all time and now it is getting the big screen treatment from none other than steven spielberg. abc's abbie boudreau got the inside scoop from academy award winner mark rylance who plays the title role. >> you think because i'm a giant that i'm a man gobbling cannibal. >> reporter: he's a big, friendly giant with an oversize

heart that will captivate yours. >> it's a fiz wizard. >> reporter: and the man behind the big ears is the much smaller but equally gentle mark rylance. you're not a giant. >> no, i'm not. >> your ears are normal size. >> i wish i had big ears. a whole category in training class, ear acting. >> reporter: i can actually move my ears. >> oh, you can move them. that's very good. i can't even see your jaw moving. >> reporter: maybe not my calling but acting certainly is his. a theater actor for years and his first hollywood role he snagged an oscar. >> means the world to me the stories i'm telling are making people laugh or moving people or even just distracting them from the troubles of the world for a day and giving them a bit of strength to carry on. >> reporter: and that's the message of "the bfg," strength to overcome your differences, the tale of two unlikely friends and a special language. >> hippo dumplings and crocodile dillies.
8:37 am

8:38 am
places that had so much rain, remember, 25 people dead is the updated number with those flash flood watches you could get another 1 to 3 inches which is nothing compared to last week but the soil is so saturated. >> hello, i am meteorologist mike nicco with the highs today, 70s in san francisco, and 80s to 100s for the rest of us, it will take all week but if you look for cooler weather this weekend is going to be average. >> this weather brought to you by nationwide. and just in time for summer there is a new teen horror series about a camp called "dead of summer." this scares me so much already. one of the stars elizabeth mitchell here with me to tell us about it. "dead of summer." what is it like filming something like that because to me that's a nightmare. >> it's really fun. we have a lot of fun. we laughed. it's really quite joyful sadly. >> it's a joyful scary.
8:39 am
>> it's joyful scary. it was joyful to film it. it's kind of creepy to watch. >> someone watching it what should they expect. >> you have a lot of, oh, but there's kind of romance and coming of age and sweetness. >> that makes me a little bit happier. did you go to camp and was it anything like this in i did go to camp and, yeah. without the really terrifying part. >> we can't wait to see it. i'm telling you even looking right there, i can handle that part. that's not the scary part. >> you can handle that. >> if all of you would like to watch and be slightly scared, "dead of summer" premieres tuesday, at 9:00, 8:00 central on freeform. you can see an exclusive clip of it on our website, goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! thank you very much for being here with us. >> happy to be here. >> we can't wait to get scared. coming up we want you to go ahead and get your grills ready. look at this. yeah, how to grill the perfect steak all coming up here on "good morning america."

and we are back now with the secret. guy, let's cook the steaks before you eat it all right now. chef michael vignola here from striphouse steak house in new
8:43 am
york. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> it all begins with getting the right meat. >> you got to know your butcher. it starts off with great product. just get a really great steak. striphouse really believes in that. i like to do a thick steak. >> you prefer the thick ones. >> you get a nice char on it and you can cook it for a group and slice it up. more communal, more fun. >> you always go back and forth on this. do you want the fresh meat or dry aged. >> there's no such thing as fresh meat. all has some sort of age to it. it's if you want dry age versus wet aged. i prefer dry aging, it gives you that taste. >> what are you going to do with it? >> first we'll start with a little bit of blended oil, 80% canola oil, 20% olive oil. >> you let it sit out for awhile. >> yeah, then we'll take our
8:44 am
black peppercorn, want to mix this up for us. >> yeah. >> take our black peppercorns and toasted red peppercorns and a little coriander seed, juniper berries and sumatra coffee -- >> what does the coffee do? >> coffee picks up that fat in the beef and gives you more smokiness and gets you going in the morning. >> yeah. >> a little more salt. >> we'll start with kosher salt and really season it liberally. don't be shy to salt. some will fall off and want to permeate that thick steak in >> and then we just -- >> get it on there, crust it on there. >> all right, turn it over. >> flip her over, do the same thing. there. >> that's all right. >> okay. then we'll put it on. >> we'll go right to the grill right here. >> how much each side? >> so for a steak this size about an inch to 2 1/2 inches, eight minutes on each side and make sure you let it rest.
8:45 am
and you want to be careful -- when you're grilling you are might get flare-up, a little baking soda and water puts that flame out. >> and this is on a medium heat. >> talk about letting it rest. a lot of people forget to do that. >> between a pro and amateur. when you were a kid your mother cut it, it bled all over. let it rest five to seven minutes. that will give you that beautiful tender color all throughout. >> this has been resting a little while longer. >> that one's been sleeping. >> a little more done than you would normally do. >> yes, some of the cuts i love are rib eye here. >> beautiful. >> has that beautiful marbling and filet mignon, nice center cut. >> what is that? >> fourth of july around the corner, it's our long bone rib eye. >> i love that one too. >> of course, the porterhouse, the best of both worlds, our strip and filet. >> what do you guys think? >> i love it. >> yabba-dabba doo. >> yabba-dabba doo.
8:46 am
excellent. >> tell us about the salads. >> it's summertime. want to eat a little lighter with our steaks, a beautiful three bean salad, shaved radishes, horseradish vinaigrette and then a fun take is our heirloom tomatoes simply dressed with sea salt and a sweet and tango barbecue sauce and fresh basil. >> how many layers are in this cake? >> no meal would be complete without our 24-layer chocolate cake. >> wow. >> i'd go for that first. >> that's pretty good. michael, thanks a lot for coming. you can get his top grilling tips. on our website goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! coming up, the chainsmokers are here to perform. ♪ >> g
