7:07 am
the use of that robot bearing the bomb was controversial. do you think it was warranted? >> i do believe it was warranted. it saved lives, it would have been a tragedy for more officers to lose their lives. >> reporter: now, authorities decided to go ahead and detonate that bomb despite the fact that they knew there were people inside that college at the time. they had apparently become trapped there when the school went on lockdown but all of them were evacuated unharmed. >> let's get more from our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas in washington and, pierre, the investigation has intensified. authorities still searching for any possible accomplices. >> reporter: good morning, george. authorities this weekend continued to look for any support johnson may have had especially from black supremacists and so far found no evidence to link others but the dallas police chief said he plans to leave no stone your honor turned. the suspect micah johnson embraced a radical form of afro trendicism and supported the new black
7:08 am
advocates violence against whites and jews. he was on radical websites and in one case liked a page that said kill everything blue that moves. and while such language is incredibly scary it may be just within the margins of free speech. it's a general call to harm people but not a direct threat but there are those in law enforcement who worry those preaching this might inspire violence the way isis radicals have been doing on social media. >> so much hate. thanks, pierre. robin. thank you, george. now to a texas mother being called a hero. mia taylor and her four sons were caught in a hail of bullets and joins us from gar land, mia, it is so good to see you. tell us how you are doing this morning as you continue to heal and recover from your wound. >> i'm just very thankful and

7:10 am
yelled out, you know, he's got a gun. he said, run or get down and then it just was a barrage of bullets that just almost sounded like they were coming from everywhere. my kids took off up the block and, of course, i'm making sure that they're ahead of me as much as possible and i'm running as well, but then i feel it hit me in the back of my leg and it slowed me down immediately and i guess my son andrew turned around to either see where i was or he might have heard what i said, i'm not entirely sure but he turned around and i'm like, oh, god, i just grabbed him and i just fell on him just kind of just through all my weight on him to get him down into the street and -- >> your motherly instincts just kicked in. you were there, you wanted to protect your children. >> absolut
7:11 am
>> and what did the police do when they knew that you were shot? the police around you? >> several -- a few officers had come up that block right where we were and they saw us laying there and one of them asked is anyone hit? my son said no because he was not aware at the time that i had been shot. i said yes but in a very low kind of tone as to not startle my son. and the officer asked again a little more aggressively is anybody hit? i said, yes, sir, i am, in my leg and i mean they went into action. they surrounded us. they did for me and my son what i did for my son and that was to protect us and they went into action, no hesitation whatsoever. >> they were doing their job. >> i'm just so grateful. >> doing their job to protect and to serve and you saw some police officers get shot
7:12 am
your eyes, mia. >> yes, ma'am. yes, ma'am, yes, ma'am, yes, i did. i saw two officers -- i saw two officers get shot. >> i'm so sorry. i mean, i know what you were saying and what people are trying to grapple with what's going on in this country, and in part the protests you said that you were there with your sons because of unity. you wanted to show dallas coming together. there were others that were there, though, as you know because they were upset with the two gentlemen that were killed earlier in the week and in minnesota and in louisiana. what do you say to people who are waking up or about to start a new week, mia, and last week is one that we all want to put behind us but we have to learn and move forward
7:13 am
>> we do. we absolutely do. as my son stated, you know, these are isolated incidences, unfortunately, it's frequent in the incidences but we have to -- we have to learn to love. we have to learn to understand that policemen and policewoman are not robots. they are human. we are all human and we all make mistakes. some are more permanent mistakes than others but we can all get over anything if we just come together, just communication. it all starts with communication if you ask me, i just -- we all have so much more in common than i think that we all want to
7:14 am
admit. and it starts with family. it starts with family. >> you know, you remind me a lot of my mom. she said, honey, we have more in common than not so why don't we focus on those similarities and a lot of it begins with family. >> exactly. >> mia taylor, thank you so much. >> exactly. we do. >> yeah, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> for your strength and courage and continue to know that the nation, the world, are thinking of you, your family, all the people there in dallas, as well as the families who lost loved ones last week in other places. thank you, mia taylor. you take care. >> yes, ma'am. thank you. thank you. >> so she was shot, she didn't want to startle her son so she whispered to the police officer that she had been hit. >> and you just see how much she is powered by love. so strong. >> message there for all of us. >> all these shootings front and center in the race for the white house right now as just one week before the republican convention in cleveland.
7:15 am
latest from the campaign trail. >> reporter: with the country still reeling after the ambush in dallas and protests across the nation, donald trump is accusing the president of ignoring reality, trump tweeting "president obama thinks the nation is not as divided as people think. he is living in a world of the make believe." race now at the forefront of the campaign. one of trump's biggest supporters, former new york city mayor rudy giuliani with this advice to black children. >> if i were a black father and i was concerned about the safety of my child i would say be very respectful of the police. i'd also say be very careful of those kids in the neighbor and don't get involved with them because, son, there's a 99% chance they're going to kill you, not the police. >> reporter: and this blunt view of black lives matter. >> black lives matter, white lives matter, asian lives matter. hispanic lives matter. that
7:16 am
racist. >> reporter: a much different tone from hillary clinton. >> i'm going to be talking to white people, i think we're the ones who have to start listening to the legitimate cries that are coming from our african-american fellow citizens. >> reporter: trump supporter retired army general michael flynn who's being vetted to be trump's running mate strongly disagreeing with clinton's statement. >> and she talked about white people being to blame. i mean, that is so irresponsible. >> reporter: but flynn may have his own troubles gelling with trump. >> i think women have to choose. >> reporter: he is a registered democrat who unlike trump supports abortion rights. and a big week ahead. senator sanders expected to endorse hillary clinton at a rally tomorrow and we may learn who donald trump will pick to be his running mate before next week's convention. george. >> okay, tom, thanks. more on this from martha raddatz who joins us from dallas and our political analyst matthew dowd from san antonio.
7:17 am
there speaking with voters and now heading across the country to cleveland. this issue, of course, top of mind for everyone. >> reporter: it truly is, george. really everyone we've talked to has talked not only about a racial divide but the political divide and because we're in dallas and we've been around here obviously, everybody is talking about how you bridge that divide. some of the voters i talked to say they really haven't made a decision yet. that they're listening to donald trump, they're listening to hillary clinton, but keeping their children safe and somehow bringing this nation together is really paramount on their mind, george. >> matthew dowd, we saw in martha's interview with general flynn, he said he was basically pro-choice. difficult for republican vice presidential nominee but donald trump is zeroing in on this decision now, biggest decision as you said of his campaign, the biggest one he has control of. other contenders, chris christie, mike penns, the governor of in
7:18 am
>> well, i think this is a very important point in the time for donald trump. i mean for two reasons this decision matters to him a lot. one, he needs to dominate the conversation again, george, in the course of this and he's lost control somewhat of the conversation over the last month. it's important for that and, two, he needs somebody to be part of his tag team. he's been tag-teamed. he needs somebody to help him attack the other side and carry his message and he's not had that since he's gotten the nomination or come close to getting the nomination. >> okay, thanks very much. let's go to ginger. >> 19 wildfires burning from colorado to california. this from boulder kobe bryant is the cold springs fire. two out of state campers were arrested for setting that fire. we've got hundreds of folks even overnight that have been evacuated from their homes. santa clarita, california, the sage fire and then, of course, looking at 49% contained and 77% contained in this part of california. much more fire danger today. a whole lot more coming up

7:31 am
several days in front of dallas police headquarters as protests over the weekend here remain peaceful. the city getting ready to host president obama. he is arriving tomorrow to speak at a memorial service honoring those five officers killed in the ambush shooting here last thursday. former president george bush also expected to address the crowd. last night from los angeles, to memphis, thousands gathered in cities all over the united states to protest the treatment of black men by police. hundreds were arrested over the weekend in baton rouge and 21 officers injured during protests in st. paul, minnesota, coming up in the next hour we will hear more from that powerful town hall with an inspirational message of unity and peace, something this entire country needs. robin. >> all right, amy, thank you very much. we'll get back to you later. those protests sparked in part by the police shooting in minnesota that took the life of philando castile. the aftermath livestreamed on facebook by his brave girlfriend, diamond reynolds. she is here live with u
7:32 am
morning. and we'll bring you that exclusive interview coming up but first eva pilgrim has the latest on the investigation from st. paul, minnesota. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, robin. those officers involved in the shooting are on paid leave as this investigation rolls on. this morning we're hearing from one of the officers' attorneys who say there's more to the story than we've been told. >> i told him not to reach for it. i told him to get his hand off it. >> reporter: this morning new developments in the shooting of philando castile gunned down by police officer jeronimo yanez after being stopped for a broken taillight. >> you told him to get his i.d., sir. his driver's license. oh, my god. >> you don't kill a man for a taillight. that's ridiculous. >> reporter: the officer's attorney speaking out overnight. >> there was more than one reason to stop the car. there was more than the reason that the brake light was
7:33 am
>> he's licensed to carry. >> reporter: while castile who was armed inside his vehicle is said to have had a valid permit to carry, yanez seen here in the city of falcon heights annual report tells abc news through his attorney that once the 32-year-old had been pulled over, he did not comply with officer's orders. >> this incident had nothing to do with race and everything to do with the presence of a gun. >> reporter: the officer's attorney says he has seen video and audio of the stop he thinks will prove their case. for now, the only video seen by the public, this one, castile's girlfriend calmly capturing the horrifying aftermath. >> you shot four bullets into him, sir. he was just getting his license and registration, sir. >> reporter: holding it together until she is placed in the back of a police car eventually breaking down. her 4-year-old daughter who witnessed the terrifying ordeal from the backseat comforts her. >> it's okay, i'm right here with you.
7:34 am
his attorney says he'll be able to speak more freely about what happened once the video and audio are released. for now he's waiting for investigators to do their job, george. >> okay, eva, thanks. we are joined now by diamond reynolds and her attorney larry rogers. thank you for coming in this morning. we are so sorry for what you've been through and we know how hard it has been just to see you watch that video one more time but you and your daughter have also been so strong throughout this. how are you doing? ? we're holding up. i mean, every day is challenging but with god and all the support of everyone around america i believe we can get through this. >> and i think all of america has been so struck by the kind of composure and strength you showed during that horrifying few minutes with the police officer. can you explain how you remained so calm and how you decided to shoot that video? >> i was able to remain
7:35 am
because i knew in the back of my mind if anything was to alarm that officer he possibly could have took me and maybe even my daughter and what made me record the live video was god telling me it's your word over theirs and i just wanted the justice. >> and, you know, you saw in that piece from eva the officer's attorney is now speaking out as well. he says this was all about the presence and display of a gun. that it wasn't about race and that he has audio and video that backs up that case. how do you respond to that? >> i'm appalled that they would even say that, you know. the officer didn't take proper procedures so the fact that they're stating that they had probable cause is absolutely incorrect. >> so what happened? did the gun ever come out? >> no.
7:36 am
he was never even asked was he armed or anything. we told him, he told him. >> so when you say the officer didn't follow proper procedure try and take us to those moments before you were able to pull out the video and explain what happened. what you saw, what the officer said, what was going on. >> well, she's done that largely in the video. the video depicts the immediate aftermath but it really describes the entirety of what happened because she describes the moments leading up to when she pulled out the phone and it's never denied, it's never refuted by the officer and she emphatically says you asked him for his license and registration and that's what he was getting at the time you shot him. >> so the gun as you said never came out. >> never. it never came out. it could never be a threat. he didn't ask about it. he didn't know it was on his person. he came to the car. he said it was a traffic stop for a taillight and that he asked for license and registration. that was it. that was all. >> as you saw the
7:37 am
taillight wasn't the only reason the car was stopped. did he ever mention -- >> he never mentioned anything other than a taillight in which we later discovered there was no broken taillight. >> and that's the concern we have here is that they will begin to add facts to the circumstances which is why her livestream video from facebook is so important. it's con temp andous with the events that occurred and emphatic about what is happening and complying with the officer. the man is still seat belted while he's shot and while a gain is still trained inside the car and she is there she knows after the events unfold she won't be believed. she won't be trusted and she like many people across america have to document things because people inherently trust the officers against the citizens so people are forced to -- >> in that moment -- >> i knew that people would choose sides and i knew that they wouldn't see me as being the p
7:38 am
the truth and because of that i chose to in that moment record the immediate aftermath because i wasn't able to record in the moment because i didn't want to pull put myself or my daughter in more danger but i knew by recording i would be able to have my side brought to the table. >> have you seen the audio and video that the officer's attorney is speaking abouty do you know what he could be referring to. >> i don't and what's important about that is that she didn't hide a video. she immediately displayed it to the public and to the world. so if they have evidence that they think refutes that, produce it right away. don't hide it, show it to us. we had's like to see the dash cam, every piece of evidence they have. we have demonstrated and shown what we have and the world has seen it. governor dayton you will kaed it as he saw it. this involved race. this involved issues that likely would not have occurred had they been white people driving through the area.
7:39 am
this morning. what would you say to him? >> i would just like to say that i'm very hurt that he would take my best friend away from myself and my daughter's role model away from her. it's just very unfortunate that things had to result like this and i just want justice to be served. >> you look over at your daughter several times here over just the last few minutes. what do you say to her when you hug her now? >> i just tell her to stay strong and we're going to be okay and we're going to get the justice that we deserve. >> and what does justice mean to you. >> justice to me means everyone being held accountable for their own actions. we're all human. no one is born into being doctors, no one is born into being lawyers, no one is born into being police,
7:40 am
so justice to me meaning someone meaning him has to be held accountable, not as an officer or a man with a badge or someone even protecting our people, but him within himself as a person how he was born into this world just with no titles, no labels, he needs to be held accountable. >> no special treatment for anyone. we all should be required to live by the rules the same set of rules and when you do an act that is unjustifiable you should be held accountable. >> you want justice and what do you hope for the country coming out of all of this unrest, all this violence we've seen over the last week? >> i am very baffled that people are resorting to violence with violence. violence is never the key. it's not acceptable. we have to be able to come together and lead by example. if we're not able to stand
7:41 am
emotions then how can we ever expect anyone else in the world to do so? >> and law enforcement has to stop closing ranks and stand up for what's right and what's just. we want an independent investigation by the department of justice. there is no faith in police policing police and investigating police. >> absolutely. >> thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having us. >> good to have diamond here and her attorney, larry rogers and little girl and sister here too so she has a lot of support around the country and here in the studio supporting her too with her family. coming up on our big board, more reports of sexual harassment complaints against roger ailes and a midair mystery. what made several passengers sick on a delta flight? and pokemon problems. a warning from police for people playing the popular new smartphone game. we'll be back in two minutes. i don't want to live with the uncertainties of hep c.

we welcome you back. time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by with more on this morning's top stories. t.j. holmes is here at the desk with us and we'll get to him in a moment but we'll start with new very manies in the legal drama surround fox news chairman roger ailes. "new york" magazine reporting six more women claimed ailes sexually harassed him years before he worked at fox news as others have come to his defense including maria bartiromo, greta van susteren and jeanine pirro. dan abrams, women are coming to his defense, supposedly these other accusers, how will it shake down with the case? >> let's separate out the court of public appeal from the court of law. the court of public opinion these high-profile women, some of them former prosecutors, are very helpful to roger ailes but in the court of law the more important question is going to be who are the accusers, what is the credibility? two of them on the record here with regard to the four other, i
7:45 am
at those. the reporter who reported this story has been going after fox news and roger ailes for years here. some of his reporting has been questioned but the bottom line if they're able to get people on the record making similar accusations to roger ailes that could be problematic for him. >> roger ailes' attorney on the record as well and read his statement. he is saying it's become obvious miss carlson and her lawyer are desperately attempting to litigate this in the press because they have no legal case to argue. the latest allegations all 30 to 50 years old are false." we want to move to steve ganyard. this air scare for passengers aboard a delta flight diverted to tulsa after several passengers reported feeling ill and according to the tulsa fire department some passengers showed signs of elevated carbon monoxide levels and, steve, you're our aviation contributor. this is really scary stuff. we all know that carbon monoxide can kill. >> that's true, george. i'm still not sure what caused these people to
7:46 am
carbon monoxide in the cabin doesn't make sense. perhaps there was something where the engine exhaust got mixed but i still think that what caused this is a bit of a mystery. we also saw that some of the passengers panicked so perhaps there was some sympathetic symptoms going on here but delta will get to the bottom of this and the faa will look over their shoulder to make sure they do. >> we need to have the answers. you're right about that. thank you. now a new pokemon game that could be putting people at risk. pokemon go is an app that lets people see the characters through their phones as if they exist in the real world. the goal to catch them by going to these spots like the one we have one outside the abc studio, right? >> that's idea. the most popular app in the world right now. >> what's the deal. >> you're looking at your phone. if you see a pokemon you're triering to catch or says 44th and broadway to get it i need to physically go outside. it keeps up with you via gps, you see the problem now, people can keep up with you so now police in missouri say
7:47 am
had an instance where people are using this app to lure people, other players in the game to specific locations that are kind of secluded so, again, folks, they can tell exactly where you are and get you to a specific location. >> so you're playing against mebody who draws you to an area. >> they can draw you to it by different versions essentially say you can make a lot is going on in this area and stay there and wait for somebody to show up exactly where you are because the game is so hot and addictive people are lured to these areas. i got to go get this pokemon and they will come to the area. this is the real deal and they are putting out warnings now that -- >> what are they doing about this. >> they're trying to tell people, just play with people you know or friends if you're going to new areas and look up, people are using this thing right now walking down the treat looking down, where is this thing and going into unknown areas and, boom. >> a difference in times square than going down a dark alley. >> that's exactly right. >> we'll be right back. hi mom.

8:05 am
e-cigarettes. the new study suggests the habit is leading to a level of nicotine use among teenagers not seen since the 1990s. researchers say cigarette smoking rates remain steady even as vaping became more popular. it turns out one thing parents do not have to worry about so much is thumbshuckers. thu thumbsuckers are far less likely to develop allergies and the same for kids who bite their nails. those habits expose them to more germs and boosts their immune system. and finally it is clear why some people are meant to play baseball and others should probably just stick to watching the game. as for playing check out san francisco giants catcher buster posey throw the ball to his pitcher who was arguing that a call -- he was arguing a call and wasn't looking but apparently that doesn't even matter. the ball falls -- look at that -- right into his glove and then there's this. giants fan disastrous attempt to catch a foul. she's using her food tray, yeah,

8:16 am
morehouse men have to say. janet, so many emotion, over the weekend gathered with friends and there's anger and there's fear and tell us, janet, the difference between those two emotions and how they affect us, anger and fear. >> so fear is an instinct and, you know our brains are constantly working to see if we're safe or we need to look for something to survive so that fear in terms of feeling threatened it's a normal reaction but it's largely unconscious but the anger is a secondary emotion and it's reaction to what is going on so emotions are normal. i think, you know, we are so used to looking for happiness which is important and joy but sometimes we have to be rooted in pain so that we can work through it and before we can get to love and healing, we have to look at ourselves in terms of our own lineage, our own belief, what's been told to us about other people and challenge that so we can break that because the suffering that we feel right now is a suffering that we feel i think as black people over the last 300 years. and that suffering

8:18 am
>> well, you know, this past weekend, my -- i have children, i have four children and one of my children expressed to me that she was scared. she was scared for her dad. she was scared for her brothers and she said, you know, mommy, if you do all the right things, i mean, if you still do all the right things and then they still shoot you and as a parent that's frustrating, frustrating because i didn't have an answer for her. i didn't know how to respond and i know a lot of parents are hurting. i know a lot of people are angry but, you know, how do you turn all of that into something constructive? how do i prepare my kids for these possibilities? you know, unfortunately, i don't -- i don't want to face them. you know, but i don't know what else to tell my children. how do i talk to my children? >> thank you for that, kimmy. ma marc, you want to take that.
8:19 am
>> that's what my students are facing. we do things the right way. opening eyes that you can't behave your way out of institutional racism. we have to fight so part of what this does is we or went our kids to be realistic about what the world is and what it can be and orient them to turn that pain into power. that means they have a responsibility to not only behave properly but to also help fight the structures and build the structures, that means to organize and change the way we engage ourselves and do community watch, you know, tonight at vh-1 honors we have our artist community coming out to talk about what artists can do to be involved in the community. every secretary of our lives has to be involved with this. there's no easy answers even for our children and that's what hurts so much. >> we feed to bring in elizabeth. she has family members in law enforcement and she has a question, as well. on skype. go ahead. >> sure. good morning. thanks for having me. i have two toddlers and like
8:20 am
friends in law enforcement so, you know, i think as you were talking about anger and fear when we come from a side that we understand better our gut reaction is to want to protect that or to get defensive. and i'm trying really hard to have this conversation with young children and say that, you know, everybody -- all families are dealing with loss right now. we're losing husbands and wives and people who have six kids or recently became grandparents or whatever the situation might be and have to remember these people as individuals and try not to label and box them into stereotypes and things like that so how do you keep a constructive conversation, a positive conversation going when you're obviously very tied to one side of the conversation? >> okay, elizabeth, thank you. >> well, you tell the

"credit karma. give yourself some credit." ♪ all we are saying is give peace a chance ♪ ♪ all we are saying >> some hopeful images people trying to come together after this devastation of the last week and honor those lives lost in the recent shootings. >> you're listening to the young praise children's choir joining us from dallas singing "giver peace a chance" bringing light and hope and we'll have more from those beautiful young voices coming up. >> looking forward to hearing more from them in a little bit. now it's time to hear from serena williams. she made a lot of history at wimbledon. her seventh win, 22nd grand slam title and lara spoke to her moments after that tremendous victory. >> so how do you like the sound
8:31 am
of wimbledon champion seventh time? >> it's a great sound. seven wimbledons? it's pretty -- it's cool. >> what is it about this place, centre court? you seem very at home. >> i have to say i was. i felt really comfortable out there. i felt really cool and calm and collected. >> the whole time. >> yeah, pretty much. >> when you won, describe the moment where you drop to the ground. you're laying on the grass, what did that feel like? what was going through your mind. >> it tell so good. every time you win wimbledon it's such a great feeling, you know. >> yeah, i will imagine. >> you know how it is. >> oh, yeah, i totally know what it feels like to win wimbledon. i love the moment when you looked up and you went 2-2. how great to not only win wimbledon but also to tie that elusive open era record set by steffi graf. >> it was awesome. i mean i still really can't believe it. i have 22 titles. wow! i still get a little lost for words when i think about it. >> i'm so proud of you. >> thank you.
8:32 am
>> you have the greatest attitude >> thank you. >> no loss for words at all and sheekss with her racket. now over to robin. >> yes, it was a magnificent final. we're here now with tony robbins and joe berlinger. tony has inspired so many, 50 million people and counting, including bill clinton, serena, who he said he called after that big victory, oprah, as well to tap into their inner power. now he's the subject of joe's new documentary, "tony robbins: i am not your guru." please welcome tony robbins. and joe. nice to have you both here with us. >> thank you, robin. >> always when i'm in your presence and we were here primarily to talk about the documentary and it's really kind of appropriate because what's going on in the country right now, the world right now, there's all these different emotions and you have shown year after year at your events you're able to bring people from all walks of life together in that camaraderie which you really need to feel, tony.
8:33 am
>> we work witheo countries and it's important to remember that everyone in america is hurting, if anybody that we care about, anybody in your family feels unsafe you'd want to do everything you possibly could to support them and i think the black lives matter movement is not about white lives don't matter it's about the fact that blacks in this country, there are situations that have occurred for so many years that have produced a lack of trust and fear. when you see anger, where is coming from? it's hurt and i think the only good news about this is we're hitting a threshold. it takes a threshold for people to finally make real change and we'll have to look at how we make this shift. >> sometimes you have to feel more pain than good to bring about change. >> that's totally true. >> big fan of your work. >> thank you. >> and this documentary is -- you said primarily the reason you wanted to do it is because -- >> well, you know, tony and i met socially. he invited me to do a seminar. i'm not a seminar guy or so i thought. i went, i had an amazingly transformational experience and
8:34 am
said this film. he didn't want to do it for two years so i chased him, you know and eventually he relented and it was just -- i just wanted to share with people the amazing experience i had. you know, we live in very divisive times and i've never seen in a room 2500 people, the boundaries between people just melt and people get along and i think in there's more connection that we all feel in life, there would be less problems, you know. >> and joe by his own description told me i'm the most skeptical human being in the world. i study the underbelly of humanity. >> did it change your mind? was it different than you thought? was the event different than you thought it would be? >> i just, you know, you can change your life if you want to. tony gives you those tools. anyone can pursue whatever life they want and tony just helps guide you, make -- guide you into making these decisions and it was incredibly transformative. >> did you learn something about yourself watching it and do you
8:35 am
feel it captures the tru essence? >> i was skeptical you could possibly take six-day program for 12 hours a day and convert it into less than two hours but that's why this guy has seven emmys and two academy award nominations. i was blown away by joe's ability to capture really what the essence of that's about in such a short time. >> i was a little worried coming back a second type as a filmmaker would peeking inside the sausage factory so to speak change my enchantment with my first experience and coming back a second time going behind the scenes, having a full access to everything just tripled my enthusiasm about tony. i mean this guy is just killing it for that event, 12 hours a day, for a solid 6 days, it was just amazing to witness. >> i love the title of it because you do not want to be called a guru, motivational speaker because as joe said you give us the tools because i've known you for many years and
8:36 am
have used some of the things, success clues but you don't want to give people the ability to be able to heal themselves. >> yeah, i don't tell people what to believe. i don't tell people how to live but figure out what they value most to make sure they live that because lots of people, you know, think they know what they want. but very few people are acting on it so what blocks us, of course, is fear. what blocks is all the stories. we have all the people we blame, all the situations we blame including blaming ourself. what i'm good at is cutting through that to truth. i think the one thing joe and i had in common that bond us we're so alike. >> yes. >> in every way. >> but what -- >> including our height. >> what blew me away we're both seekers of truth and want to bring the truth to people as corny as it sounds, the truth sets people and it frees your soul and family your business, frees your life. he spent his whole life doing that and in one medium and i've done it another and we've partnered and i'm touched about it. >> it's perfect, the matchup but having seen it, what, joe,
8:37 am
you've done these types of films. watching it will get out of it. >> it's not that i want him to sign up for tony robbins' seminars, but if they do, that would be awesome but spend the two hours to do something we don't take time to do to think about the direction of our own lives, to think about personal fulfillment. how to be connected with one another because i think if there were more connections between people and people felt more satisfied in their lives, there would be less problems in the world. i really do. >> most people, you know, are letting life take them. most people are not designing their lives, they're making a living and taking just a few minutes to actually think about what you want to do for the next three, four, five, ten years of your life and find out what's stopping you and changing it is incredible freedom and joy for people. >> it's incredible to be in your presence. you just want to bring out the best -- >> so sweet. >> it comes out on netflix friday and it'll be 190 countries translated so friday is the about ig day. we're excited for people to see
8:38 am
it? we because also part of your event sometimes is the coal walking and recently there were some people who got injured. can you comment on that. >> here's the truth, no one was injured. i've done it for 35 years. this is no different than any one i've done before. on average we have less than half a percent that gets hot spots or blisters. it's not going to stop you if you run a marathon and facing fire and changing your tay and getting over fears and take action is transformational but it's one hour of a four-day process and it's beautiful. but the only difference is somebody came by, didn't know what we're doing, didn't understand the process, saw people and called and said bring four ambulances, this happened about five years ago in san jose and all that was retracted. nobody was hospitalized and people came back the next day so it's really if you want to change your life, no one is forced to do this. we have medical professional
8:39 am
there is to take care of them. it's aloe anything and we'll continue to do it. >> i appreciate you not shy ago way from it and change the way you think in order the way you feel. change your state. tony, joe, all the best to you. thank you very much for this. part of this conversation, got those big paws. big paws. all right. tony robbins, "i am not your guru" is available as he said on netflix friday. let's go over now to ginger. >> oh, thank you, robin. ladies from iowa. my new friends from north carolina. what are your names? >> hi. >> wanted to yell hi. love it. all right, so let's check. it's beautiful here but you go south of that stationary front and it's going to trap a lot of moisture, storms throughout the southeast. that's for your monday and look what happens here, we call it a summer delight. what you have -- beautiful weather.
8:40 am

8:41 am
counting on me ♪ i know i can't wait to see it. so tell us about "elena of avalor." >> she's 16 years old and my math is off but she's in her 50s but she's still under age so she's not yet ready to rule and so she just has a challenge of taking care of her family and this huge kingdom and have this awesome responsibility. >> your mother is puerto rican. your father is -- >> the other way around. it must mean so much to play the first latino princess. >> it means absolutely everything because, you know, i grew up with disney, this has been my family for a long time and see my own culture represented is really special and i hope it will be for everybody watching. >> how do you hope because i know it will but how do you hope that elena will inspire others. >> she's her own hero. there's no prince charming so i hope people watching will be
8:42 am
inspired by her sense of self and confidence and leadership. and we'll watch all of that coming up but all of you can watch "elena of avalor," the one-hour premiere sunday, july 22nd on disney channel. thank you for being here. robin, we'll watch it, "elena of avalor." >> we certainly are and coming up, kristen stewart is here. there she is. she's here live.

8:44 am
8:45 am
going to talk with jesse. he's a giant and he's a giant and every time these two giants get together. >> i did not stop laughing. >> and then this week what are they up to? >> hey, everybody. >> well, trust us, it'll be one giant fun surprise on abc's -- >> good morning, america. >> and it's great to have kristen stewart here. she stars as vonnie, a movie studio secretary in woody allen's latest film "cafe society" and she puts jesse eisenberg's character into the friend zone. take a look. >> i'm seeing someone. >> oh. what is he like? >> doug is a journalist. >> oh. i just thought since you had so much free time on your hands -- >> he travels a lot. and i really like spending my
8:46 am
time with you. you know, you're very sweet. have you heard that before? you have this deer in the headlights quality. >> thank you. >> and, of course, i can relate to jesse eisenberg. i've been put in the friend zone a handful of times. so great to have you. congratulations on all of your success. we watched you throughout your career in these dramatic roles and in this movie you're taking this audrey hepburn-like movie studio second and killing it. how much did this role push you and take you out of your comfort zone? >> oh, yeah, i play somebody who really needs to facilitate this like impulsive really guiltless kind of unconventional romance so the only way that would work because if her energy was just light and inviting and buoyant all the time, and i had to audition for the part because i tend to have a -- you know, i can be light and buoyant but i tend to have a slightly more
8:47 am
weighted energy and so like, as long as you don't walk like a sailor and like so i auditioned for it and apparently did okay. >> did such a great job. we saw that clip with jesse eisenberg, the third time you've worked in a movie with him. what do you love about working with jesse so much. >> he's -- he's like just stupidly smart. it's honestly -- >> most jesses are. >> uh-huh. instead of it being intimidating, it's incredibly like i want to keep up with him. i'm not embarrassed around him ever. he's a really, really like open, warm person. he's a good actor. i've known him for years so to play somebody so outside of myself was easy with him because i could do anything and not ever feel silly. >> your character is in a love triangle with jesse eisenberg's and steve carell plays your boss. what point in this movie? how does vonnie decide, hey, this is the guy for me? >> yeah, it's kind of one of
8:48 am
those bittersweet stories where you -- you the end of their lives think about all the hypotheticals that could have been and there's nothing uncontent about their lives now but it's like who knows what could have happened if you just made a few different decisions and to be able to value and hold those and not feel like they didn't come to fruition, therefore, they were worthless, it's like you can appreciate intermittent things in life and not have them be like true to perfect form, you know, like, yeah. >> it got announced you will be directing your first short film. that's awesome. what can we expect? >> it's a -- it doesn't stick -- the cool thing about short films you don't have to abide by any standard. it's super impressionistic and very close to me and we shoot in
8:49 am
three weeks and everything is like we're about to down. >> it's so cool. your parent dis a little directing yourselves so you few it was something you wanted to do at a young age. >> i grew up going to movie sets. so i love the process. i'm obsessed with it. i've wanted to do it since i was 9 years old? thank you very much for being with us and waking up early.
