7:05 am
we move on to that bombshell involving hillary clinton's closest aide, huma abedin announcing she's separating from her husband, anthony weiner, amid reports of another sexting scandal, the third one for weiner who is forced to resign from congress five years ago when the first ones became public. cecilia vega is here with the story. good morning. >> reporter: sources tell me hillary clinton's closest aide has been with her family and her boss in the hamptons where clinton has been fund-raising. her son right there with her. this announcement of the separation did not come as a surprise to people clo t as you said this is the third time in five years anthony weiner finds himself at the center of some very embarrassing headlines. just about as soon as this tabloid cover hit newsstands huma abedin hit send on a statement announcing her split from anthony weiner, saying, "after long and consideration and work on my marriage, i have made the decision to separate from my husband."
7:06 am
while his young son was next to him in bed. it comes after a sexting scandal in 2011 that forced him to resign from office. weiner heckled as he made the announcement. >> i'm announcing my resignation from congress. >> yay! pervert! >> reporter: then two years later, another sexting scandal. it doomed his bid for mayor. >> let me just reiterate to my wife how sorry i am. >> reporter: behind the scenes -- >> can you leave the room for a second? filming all the cringe-worthy moments of that tumultuous time. >> it's like having a nightmare. >> reporter: but in front of the cameras abedin stood by her man. >> i love him. i have forgiven him. i believe in him. >> reporter: sources tell abc news the couple has been estranged for months. their last known public outing in may on the red carpet at the met gala. abedin, hillary clinton's closest aide, has been in the clinton's inner circle for two decades.
7:07 am
donald trump turning the separation into a political attack. >> he's a pervert and just a very sick guy and she's married to him. >> reporter: calling it an issue of national security. >> huma abedin has access to classified information. it's very likely that much of this information anthony weiner would know about. >> reporter: well, you heard donald trump there. he is not holding back so is the clinton campaign worried that this will be a d them? they don't seem to be, george, one source telling me huma has to do what's best for her and her family. >> let's talk about it with political analyst matthew dowd. the clinton campaign, a personal issue, painful for huma abedin but you saw donald trump pouncing on it there. how deep does this cut in the campaign? >> there are so many things to say about this and to quote gene wilder as willy wonka there is no earthy way of knowing which direction this campaign is going. >> wow, you almost sang that.
7:08 am
>> i mean it's hard to fault huma once you married to quagmire from "the family guy," it's hard to fault her personally in this. it is a problem for the hillary clinton campaign because in the course of the whole thing, voters look at this, not hillary supporters and trump supporters aren't going to like it but sort of independents look at it and say do we really want to go back to all this again? >> it's trouble. >> but we really have to draw a line around her private life, and this is her husband. it has nothing to do with the campaign. >> meantime, donald trump continues to be bedeviled about issues about race. you saw david duke out there, former klan member, talking about supporting trump and running for senator in indiana. and trump disavowed that and has a pastor tweeting hillary clinton in black face, yet, we've seen from some of the recent polls he appears to at least stop the bleeding. >> when you take a look at the average of the polls, he's almost where he was preconvention when he took a hit after the convention and the mistakes that were made in this race. he's back to where it was. this is a race equilibrium, four
7:09 am
the debates. >> you have reports of russian involvement in the elections. this could create a real crisis of confidence in whatever the outcome is. >> when we reflect back on what happened in 2000 when there was a sense that there wasn't a legitimate president elected because of what happened in florida, we're back in that same case again. if people feel russia is involved many will look at the aftermath of this election and not accept it. >> thanks very much. now to two close calls on planes. a passenger trying to open a door in midair and another flight greeted by emergency crews after a suspicious item was spotted on board that plane. abc's david kerley is at reagan national airport with those details. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. in that first incident the calmness of an alaska flight attendant is being cited in a situation that was happening at more than 30,000 feet in the air. new video this morning of the man taken off an alaska airlines jet after he reportedly tried to open a door during a flight. >> he said he needed to cancel his flight and get off the plane and just was speaking gibberish.
7:10 am
from jfk when the man began yelling he needed to get off the plane. the pilots quickly diverting to minneapolis with a bit of wit on the radio. >> we're going to end up dropping off one of our passengers early. this customer having a difficult time working and playing well with others. >> reporter: they escorted him off the aircraft. >> the air marshals were there quick and the flight attendants sort of surrounded him. >> reporter: that man is currently in a minneapolis hospital. some other tense moments for a southw passengers and 5 crew taxiing for takeoff in albuquerque, new mexico, a suspicious item was spotted in the cabin. emergency crews surrounded the boeing 737, alarmed passengers immediately evacuated onto the tarmac. the plane was taken to a remote part of the airport grounds and searched. and nothing was found in that search. nothing suspicious. so the passengers were rescreened. they were on their way in about four hours but, george, this gives you a sense of the tension

7:12 am
>> even as objectable as we find his perspective, he certainly is entitled to express them. >> reporter: while the nfl does not require its players to stand for the anthem, kaepernick says he won't actively recruit his teammates to follow suit and in what could be seen as a truce, team leaders at the 49ers have agreed not to openly criticize him. the same can't be said for former teammates like alex boone whose brother is a marine. >> you have to show respect. especially in this position that wee game for a living. it's shameful. >> reporter: kaepernick said he could continue to sit through the star spangled banner for the rest of the season but given his injuries and analysts say recent sub-par play, it's possible that his season might not last very long. he could even be cut over the next couple of weeks. amy? >> matt, thank you. now to a search for answers after a murder on cornell university's ivy league campus. a student from a nearby college

7:33 am
and, you know, i'm not one to make excuses but i mean i was still intoxicated. i was still going through the emotions of, you know, having a gun pulled on me and -- i mean, i just -- i'm human. i made a mistake and that's something that i'm going to have to live with. >> you never technically filed a police report. they actually came to you. >> yes. >> would you still characterize what happened that night as a robbery? >> i don't know if i would consider it as a robbery or extortion or us just paying for the fine for just paying up for the poster being ripped. >> do you acknowledge that you ripped up the poster? >> i did. yes. walking back through but -- and then, you know, "usa today" and other people have been finding out, investigating it and there
7:34 am
>> you say you never even entered the bathroom. >> i never entered the bathroom. it was locked so we couldn't go in there at all so the story about me vandalizing the bathroom is absurd and never happened. >> so what was the lie? what was the thing you told that wasn't true? >> the thing that i told that wasn't true was having the gun pointed to my forehead and cocked. that was -- that was overexaggerated. >> but a gun was pulled but not pointed at your head. >> yes. >> how will you respond to the charges recently filed by the brazilian government? will you go back to brazil and face those charges? >> you know, i definitely have a great team and they're dealing with it. all the legal issues. and we're just trying to get this over with. i mean, it's been dragged out
7:35 am
to a whole new level and i just want to put this behind me and move on and move forward and i think, you know, the rest of the world wants that too. i mean we've been talking about this way too long and there's other bigger issues that this world is facing. >> your teammate james feigan settled with authorities and paid more than $10,000. have you thought about paying him back since you took the lead on the lie and do you plan on paying anything to the brazilian government? >> like i said, my legal team, they're dealing with it and whatever happens happens. and i reached out to jimmy saying i know you had to pay that fine. you know, it is my fault. i'm taking full responsibility for this and i will pay that back if he will let me. so -- >> what have you said to your other teammates? have you reached out to them? >> i reached out to everyone.
7:36 am
that -- that was the most like important thing that i did because they mean so much to me. and when i found out that they were pulled off the plane and everything that's been happening to them in the media like that hurt me because i wasn't there and i wanted to be there and i wanted to help. i left on my own time. i didn't leave -- i didn't leave them for dry or anything like that leave for my flight. the authorities, they cooperated with me like, everything was perfect. they said, congratulations on your gold medal and i left. they didn't say you have to stay here or anything like that. so it just -- i've been really trying to be supportive and be positive for them being like i'm really sorry. i mean, that's all i can do right now.
7:37 am
you mom also got dragged into this. >> yes. i mean, not much i can say. i mean it's my mom. no matter what she's going to stick by my side. >> did you apologize to her? >> oh, i definitely did. everything that she's done in my entire life, she's been there through thick and thin and especially this. i just hate how this has affected my entire family and, like, the people around the world. i can't repay her for what's happened, but i mean, we're a family. we have to stick together. >> what do you say to people who say you've embarrassed your country? have you? >> i mean, i -- i think it's -- it's everyone is blowing this way out of proportion. i think that's what happened and, you know, like i said, i did lie about that one part and i take full responsibility.
7:38 am
a very big mistake and it's something that i learned from and i know that that will never happen again. >> "dancing with the stars," you actually agreed to be a part of the show before this incident happened. but now that you've dealt with the incident and you're still dealing with the backlash, do you still feel like it's a good idea to put yourself out on a reality tv s still legally dealing with this, financially dealing with this and emotionally dealing with this? >> the emotional part is the hardest thing. the past two weeks have been like the lowest point of my life and it's been really hard but like the fans, my family, my friends, they've all been really positive, keeping me going and that's what i want to do and this is perfect with the show because i want to put that behind me. i'm never the one to dwell on the past. i just want to move forward and i want the whole world to move
7:39 am
i don't want this -- i mean everyone's got to be sick and tired of hearing about this. i know i am. i just want to move forward and -- >> put on your dancing shoes. >> put on my dancing shoes or at least try to. >> all right, ryan lochte, we're going to have much more with you in our next hour talking about "dancing with the stars." thank you for joining us. >> yes, thank you. >> george? >> coming up on our big board, this video getting a lot of reaction. look at that. it shows a 4-year-old thrown from a bridge in a river. his mom right there. is now under investigation. then amazon trying something new, a 30-hour workweek for many of its employees. we'll get into whether that's a good idea. could music at the office make you a better team player? our insiders join us in two minutes. better team player? our insiders join us in two minutes. when i put on a great pair of pants... i can move, be myself

7:41 am
welcome back. time now for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's
7:42 am
sunny hostin here at the table for our first story and it's a doozy. the disturbing video that is getting hundreds of thousands of views online. you can see why. it shows a 4-year-old boy tossed off a bridge as his mother watches from a river below. take a look. [ screaming ] >> oh! >> you can actually hear the boy screaming as he plunges 27 feet into that water. the boy's mother reportedly is also heard there cheering as an acquaintance throws her son from the bridge and later playing it off as fun. thankfully the little boy is okay and, sunny, we know that he was shaken up but authorities are investigating and we can all see why. what do you think should happen? >> i'm looking at george. >> he could have been killed. this is crazy. >> horrific. >> it's horrific. the bottom line is he has to be taken out of the home at this point. a full-scale investigation by child protective services. i think his mother should be charged with child endangerment, certainly child abuse.
7:43 am
society now has to step in and take care of this little boy because his mother doesn't know how to do it. >> the investigation still going on. amy and i were talking before and remember the story, last week we had the story of two kids, their mom left them alone for 45 minutes and charged with a misdemeanor. a lot of give and take of these laws that vary state by state. >> especially when it comes to parents. i think the parents should be held to a higher standard. if we saw a baby-sitter tossing this 4-year-old boy off a bridge or a stranger, that person would be sitting in jail right now but now that we're talking about his mother, she is just free sort of walking around. i think the rule of thumb when it comes to parenting is what you can't do to an adult, you can't do to a child. you can't beat an adult. you can't throw a kid -- an adult off of a bridge. you can't do it to a kid. >> it's a great rule. just stunning, stunning video. thank you, sunny, very much. we move on now to that big headline from amazon.
7:44 am
for employees, full benefit, 75% of a 40-hour worker's pay and rebecca jarvis is here to talk about it. we know some european countries adopted shorter workweeks. why is amazon taking this on now? >> because it sounds great, george. that's why. this makes the company -- it's a great, great bit of news for the company and makes them sound more competitive. it also makes them more attractive to mothers. these companies, the amazons of the world, are trying to attract a different group of employees. also, some out there are speculating maybe this is in reaction to the story from "the new york times" last year that criticized the work environment at amazon, maybe that's the case but amazon says this is a pilot program. they're trying it out with a small group and maybe if it works out with a small group they'll expand it into the rest of the company. >> sounds good, rebecca. thank you so much. now to a fascinating new study about music at work. take a listen to this. ? i'm walking on sunshine ? whoa ? >> we're all dances here except

"the new york post" publishing this lewd photo of weiner with his 5-year-old son beside him. his wife, huma abedin, announcing she's had enough. "i have made the decision to separate from my husband." >> when he dragged her child into this, i think that was when her motherly instinct said it's time. i'm done. >> reporter: the couple's marriage has been under the microscope since then congressman weiner accidentally posted a graphic photo on his twitter account in 2011.
8:14 am
regret. i apologize to my wife and our families. >> reporter: in 2013 the couple re-emerged during weiner's new york city mayoral bid. the documentary "weiner" gives a behind-the-scenes look at the couple's private life during the campaign. >> but i don't have any prep. >> on what? >> on what to say. >> to whom? >> is the press going to be there? >> i'll give you some prep. i'll give you some prep. >> you don't know anything. >> no, i would say you act like a normal campaign candidate's wife. i think anthony is doing an amazing job. >> reporter: as weiner vied for a second chance, he got caught up in another sexting scandal. abedin remained by his side. >> i made the decision that it was worth staying in this marriage. >> reporter: but now abedin is done playing the role of the supportive wife. for "good morning america," mara schiavocampo, abc news, new york. >> and joining us now relationship expert dr. logan
8:15 am
as we know, there was no physical contact between weiner and this other woman, but betrayal takes many forms, yes? >> betrayal takes many forms. i think it's first important to remember that we are not in this relationship. we're not in any of these public relationships, so it's really hard for us to judge. i think it's helpful and certainly kinder if we talk about what we might do differently as opposed to judging someone else, but, yes, betrayal can be physical, sexual, emotional and technological. >> right, and speaking of the technological aspect, i mean, happening in your spouse's phone. is it ever okay as a spouse or a girlfriend or boyfriend to look at the other's phone if you're suspicious? >> in a healthy, high functioning relationship, we should not be snooping at all. i think there has to be assumed trust built into a relationship. however, in a case where someone has betrayed a partner before, then that trust needs to be earned back, so while i don't recommend snooping, a spouse or partner has to be willing to
8:16 am
i'm doing and i want to prove to you i'm making a change. >> i've always been curious. i always felt like if you felt the need to look that perhaps there is another issue you need to address. >> relationship success or failure is not really just about one partner but about both and it's about talking about expectations and really communicating. we're not mind readers and sometimes we assume that. >> i know that this has been a very public battle for this couple over the last five years and we saw huma stand by her man the two times before. do you ever have any advice for couples or for women, men to say when enough is enough? is there a breaking point? >> it looks like when family members, when children are involved, that's when all bets are off. there are a lot of things we can handle as adults and there are a lot of sacrifices that we make for our family but when certain people come into the mix, when our kids are thrown into this, that's usually the time where people cut the cord and say, enough is enough. >> that makes a lot of sense. dr. logan levkoff, thank you so much for joining us.

princeton consumer testing labs where this man has 20 years in the deodorant business. >> i sniff under people's armpits. >> reporter: you heard it correctly. >> you hold your arms up. i would apply the sniffer here and then -- oh, lord. >> wow. >> reporter: did that just happen? okay, poor barry has possibly the worst job in america. but -- does an something different than less expensive brands? >> people think that and pay a lot more for a product it's going to be so much better, that is just not the case at all. >> reporter: barrie explains they don't prevent you from sweating but absorb odor and masks it. what you're paying for is that scent like a high-end perfume. so with these deodorants -- >> you will still sweat but the smell will be controlled. >> reporter: if you want to preveepts sweat in the first

odor forget deodorant and try an anti-percent pi rant. >> it clogs the pores that produce the sweat. >> reporter: he points to drugstore anti-percespirant bras that contain aluminum. some people pay more for great smelling deodorant, the expert's advice to preventing odor in the first place, anti-perspirant. >> go to the box and pay $5 to $10. >> reporter: the nose knows. >> wow. he went right in there, becky. here with products. >> oh, my gosh. >> wow, that has to be one of the worst jobs in america. i have to imagine. >> listen -- >> no quantitative scientific test for smelling. you have to subjectively smell. >> this is not smell-o-vision. the expensive ones and drugstore brands. >> take a sniff.
8:40 am
>> listen, deodorant is about scent so if you're spending $400 bucks for three ounces of tom ford's cologne you're probably going to shell out another 50 to keep the smell going. >> if i'm going to be $50, it better cook dinner for me too. work it, though. >> one of the things that's interesting is deodorants are generally all in the same classification is that they mask odor. anti-perspirants prevent sweating and that also if you add in a deodorant also in addition will help to mask so what barrie said anti-perspirants are more effective. they have aluminum. they have different time release sort of methodologies and so you might want to try different brands to see which one works for you. >> mix it up. make sure this natural brand says whatever you get, make sure that it is an elite assassin of odor. that's what you're looking for everyone. >> critical. >> assassinate that ode dore.
