7:00 am
good morning, america. hillary clinton makes history. >> i can't believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet. >> the first woman nominated for president. as bill clinton makes a passionate and powerful case for his wife. >> in the spring of 1971, i met a girl. >> calling her a devoted mother and fighter. >> she is still the best darn change maker i have ever known. >> bernie sanders buries the hatchet puts clinton over the top. >> i move that hillary clinton be selected as the nominee of the democratic party. >> and this morning my one-on-one with vice president biden calling on democrats to
7:01 am
unite against donald trump. new details overnight in that terror attack in france. isis now claiming responsibility for killing a priest as the hostages speak out overnight detailing those terrifying motors. now new clues emerge about one of the teens behind the attack. a dramatic rescue caught on a deputy's body camera. gunfire rings out. the officer jumps in. >> i got you, i got you. >> pulling a mother to safety. then the hero goes back to help save her children. >> come here, buddy. come here. and we do say good morning, america. and this was the moment, the democratic convention floor erupting in cheers for hillary clinton becoming the nominee. herself celebrating with a
7:02 am
single word tweet, here it is, history. >> that moment of history united that hall, robin. it was electric in this hall yesterday and bernie sanders helped make it happen and you can see him tear up there when his name was put in nomination by his brother, there's his brother larry sanders talking about their parents, a lot of emotion here yesterday. we have a lot coming up this morning including my interview with vice president biden. he is calling out vladimir putin and donald trump making his case to the bernie sanders true believers, of course, biden will take the stage tonight along with president obama. but last night belonged to bill clinton. his tenth and most personal convention speech intimate conversation ambling through his love story with the woman he called the real hillary, much of it so familiar after all these years on the national stage but, of course, it was another first, never before has a former president made the case for his wife on that stage. abc's cecilia vega was right there on the floor for all the big moments. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george, good morning to you. a 42-minute speech from bill
7:03 am
clinton. this wasn't as we've seen him so many times at past conventions bill clinton addressing this convention hall as the former president, this time this was bill clinton the husband. it was a surprise appearance by hillary clinton as she crashed through the glass ceiling of american politics and officially clinched the democratic nomination. >> what an incredible honor that you have given me and i can't believe we just put the biggest crack in that glass ceiling yet. >> reporte and if there are any little girls out there who stayed up to watch, let me just say, i may become the first woman president, but one of you is next. thank you all. i can't wait to join you in philadelphia. thank you. >> reporter: just before that bill clinton in his tenth convention speech, this time not there as a former president but as a husband. >> in the spring of 1971, i met
7:04 am
a girl. >> reporter: with daughter chelsea looking on clinton sounding like a man telling a long family story, giving a play-by-play of their lives. >> i said, i really want you to marry me but you shouldn't do it. she smiled and looked at me like what is this boy up to? she said, that is not a very good sales pitch. >> reporter: a speech that was deeply personal and deeply political. >> and she is still the best darn change maker i have ever known. >> reporter: clinton also taking aim at a certain republican rival. >> what's the difference in what i told you and what they said? how do you square it? you can't. one is real. the other is made up. you just have to decide which is
7:05 am
which, my fellow americans. >> reporter: earlier in the day, the big decision on the convention floor as state by state roll call vote. >> for the next president of the united states. >> hillary rodham clinton. >> reporter: that delivered her the nomination. and the man who helped get her there, the very rival who once threatened to take it from her. >> and i move that hillary clinton be selected as the nominee of the democratic party for president of the united states. >> reporter: now here on the stage behind me bill clinton never actually mentioned the name donald trump but we don't expect that to be the case tonight as you guys said, president obama, vice president joe biden will take the stage tonight. they will be talking about national security and the qualifications that they believe it takes to be commander in chief, guys. you can bet they will be trying to draw a stark contrast between donald trump and hillary clinton. >> i'm sure that will be the case, cecilia, thank you very much. and as you said, george, this
7:06 am
was his most personal convention speech yet. >> in so many ways a book end to the 1992 speech he gave on behalf of himself. in both speeches they used the -- the clintons used biography to beat back controversy. i was struck by the language, you know, had first line in the thing of 1971 i met a girl. back in 1992 he had the stark line i never met my father, he was killed in a car wreck on a rainy road three months before i was born. so he had the same kind of themes telling the personal story as a way and said it to get to know the real bill clinton then, the real hillary clinton this year. >> very similar. all right, george, now to the republicans, donald trump wasting no time reacting to bill clinton's speech last night tweeting about it before clinton even took the stage. abc's tom llamas is on the campaign trail with trump in miami. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. that's right. trump actually tweeting the speech was highly overrated and then later tweeting this, many of bernie's supporters have left
7:07 am
the arena. did bernie go home and go to sleep? robin. >> all right, tom, thank you very much. and tell us a little about what trump will be doing today. there's the ask me anything i believe. >> reporter: that's right, it'll be indoors unlike outdoors where it's raining pretty hard. donald trump will take to the internet and he'll be tweeting and ask me anything on reddit. we'll see what his answers say. >> it'll be interesting to see the questions he receives, as well. >> that will be something. we move on to my interview with joe biden. he's weighing in on why russia and vladimir putin might have hacked democratic paste to hurt hillary clinton as he calls for democrats to unite against donald trump. we started out with his message for the bernie or bust crowd. what do you say to one of those bernie delegates says, i'm not going for hillary, i'm standing by my principles. >> i know you're going to go for hillary. i know you're --
7:08 am
>> how do you know. >> i just know because you're as moral as you say you are, i know you can't vote for trump. i know. >> one of the things they're angry about is leaked mayes. do you think russia is behind it. >> i don't know about this particular dump of e-mails, but we do know that this is the mod modus operandi of russia. >> what does it say if they were trying to influence our election. >> totally consistent with who putin. >> do you think he wants trump to win. >> i think he doesn't want hillary to win. i've traveled over the world over the last 7 1/2 years and haven't found a single leader that said it's great. maybe we'll get a trump presidency. >> i think putin doesn't want a united nato. i think he doesn't want a united eu. i can see where a lot of our adversaries would think it's better to have swung who doesn't have any idea what they're doing or somebody as tough as hillary. >> your reputation is the working class guy. why are so many of them going for donald trump?
7:09 am
>> well, i think there's two reasons. one, i think he has been very successful in playing on their fears, and there's not been enough focus on playing on their hopes, appealing to their better angels so, look, i don't know anybody rich or poor or well, you know, off or not who isn't concerned about isis. >> but you talked about that fear of isis. mike pence is extraordinary to think that 61 speakers came to the podium and not one named isis by name. this man, donald trump, will name our enemies without apology and he will defeat them. >> how is he going to denote -- we have the single most significant homeland security of any country in the world and what are they doing, pence and trump, what they're doing is they're breaking up our alliances. these guys don't know what they're talking about. >> of course, he's going to be up on the stage tonight, tim kaine, vice presidential candidate on the stage and president obama so another packed night, you can see more of my interview with vice
7:10 am
president biden on "this week" on sunday. let's bring in matt dowd. let's go back to bill clinton's speech and talking about this last night. he went through so much of their history, pretty glaring omiss n omission, 1998, the monica lewinsky scandal. you think it was a mistake to omit that. >> he's a great storyteller. to me he left a big chunk that actually has impacted her life and her public life much more than most anything else has and everything else that caused her pain. i thought while a great -- good speech it could have been a much more powerful speech if he had basically said and in this i've caused a lot of pain. that she's also had to work through besides all the political stuff. >> still it was well received, his speech last night. bernie sanders, we saw him getting emotional when his brother announced him and there was some protest, let's say there were some protest, still some bernie sanders supporters who are upset but seeing bernie sanders be the one to put hillary over the top and to see bill clinton is the party at least a little more unified do
7:11 am
you think today. >> you felt that last night. again, a first step was michelle obama i think you feel it in the audience and i think bill clinton actually helped do that and i thought the end with the video with all of the presidents which all one thing in common which was a man and then she comes in at the end, i think this convention is ready to move forward and my guess is after this convention, 90, 92% of democrats will be with her. >> a lot of that on president obama. what does he need to do tonight. >> i think he's going to be probably 9 most -- one of the most powerful speeches at the convention. to me the 76ers play here. he's the dr. jay who goes above the rim, the best public speaker and i think he's going to book end what bill clinton did with michele and barack obama. >> 76ers. you're dating yourself a little bit. >> a little bit. >> there you go. know your audience. that's right, thank you, matt. we move on to that terror attack overseas. a catholic priest killed during mass in france after two
7:12 am
attackers stormed in, took hostages. isis is now claiming responsibility and this morning, we're learning more about the killers and the survivors. alex marquardt is in normandy with the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is the small church where this brutal attack took place, that 86-year-old priest killed and this morning one of his parishioners in critical condition and we now know that one of the attackers was well known to the authorities having been arrested and jailed for trying to go fight in syria. new details this morning about the two attackers who burst into this 16th century normandy church holding six people hostage before brutally slaying the 86-year-old priest. the authorities now say one of the men was adel kermiche, just 19 years old, arrested twice for trying to go to syria. at the time of the attack he was under house arrest with a tracking bracelet only allowed out a few hours a day. the second attacker has not yet been identified. this nun managed to escape and alerted authorities saying the killers forced father jacques
7:13 am
hamel to his knees and recorded a kind of sermon in arabic and also said, you christians, you are killing us before executing the priest. as the attackers emerged from the church the police shot them dead. on them were two fake explosives and a kitchen timer wrapped in aluminum foil along with three knives and a handgun. shortly after isis claimed that the killers were followers. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: we die for going to see fireworks and going to a concert, now we die for going to mass near the church this girl told us. it will never end. it will never end. that is certainly the feeling by many here in france and across europe after four attacks in just two weeks, france's president has warned that this will be a long war but vowed it's one they will win. george. >> that state of emergency not going away. alex, thank you. we move on to a dramatic rescue caught on body camera. a florida police officer running right into a gun battle to save a woman who had been shot then helping her kids to safety. abc's linzie janis has the

under my skirt. so i think we'll see real change in georgia very, very quickly. >> all right, so, good, so our legal system is doing something to keep up with technology, sunny? >> it's trying. i mean, the wheels of justice sometimes turn a little slowly and it's very difficult to catch up with the fast pace of technology, but we are getting there. we've gotten there in washington. we're gotten there in hawaii. we've gotten there in florida. like i said in new york it's a felony to do this kind of behavior so certainly georgia is going to catch up and a lot of other states will catch up too. >> all right. those whees need to turn a little faster in this country. >> big wheels keep on turning. all right. >> that's a little crazy. >> sunny, thank you very much. now to the amazon hack attack. this texas woman reporting to amazon a hacker broke into her account, draining it of $1700. she then changed her password and the hacker broke in again. how does this happen? we're asking robert herjavec, star of "shark tank" and author of "you don't have to be a
7:42 am
shark." he's joining us now and, robert, i know you head a cybersecurity firm and this hacker sent her threatening notes to stop canceling her fraudulent orders. here's what she said. >> canceling my orders. he was using everything, this is my account now. your account has been hacked. these are my purchases. this is my 1.6k balance. and amazon will take care of you, just let it be. >> wow. >> amazon did refund her money but, robert, how vulnerable are we to hackers? >> well, today being online is like modern dating. you need protection. spyware, key loggers, malware. everybody is at risk. look at the democrats. they got nailed. the average consumer is at an all-time risk. >> i'm surprised that the arrogance of the hacker. robert, we reached out to amazon for a comment. they said if a customer
7:43 am
experiences any issue with their account our team will work directly with the customer to resolve the matter. how can you protect yourself and your amazon account or any other accounts you have out there without depending on that company? >> well, amazon is great and a lot of companies will help you but you got to help yourself. always say number one, use two factor awe tent indication. a good password and p.i.n., change it often and clear your cache. you can go into your browser and clear all the stuff that's on there from before. everybody should do that. >> all right. everybody needs protection. >> good advice. >> thanks, robert. >> i need another password. all right, thanks, robert. to the u.s. men's basketball team playing exhibition game against china. they're gearing up for the rio olympics but nba superstars lebron james and steph curry will not be a part of the u.s. olympic team but three-time nba champion bruce bowen joins us with more. bruce, good question. without steph, without lebron, without chris paul, without
7:44 am
james harden, can this team still win the gold? do they have enough talent? >> absolutely, they have enough talent. come on, michael. this team played china twice and held them to 57 points. so one game they win by 49. next game they win by 50. come on, you got to give them credit. this is a young team, but it's a team that still has stars of the game today. have you carmelo anthony going tore a third gold medal. you have kevin durant who is an mvp and a leading scorer in the nba. then you have champions in draymond green and klay thompson as well as kyrie irving who understands the value of playing that high level basketball at the highest level in the nba. >> i am with you, bruce. >> going yes. >> i really like kyrie. so, remember '92, michael jordan, magic johnson, larry bird. how does this team stack up. >> it does not stack up to that team. those are greats. those are guys that are part of
7:45 am
the 50 greatest players in the nba. now, we'll have other greats in the nba. but we're going to say, this group, some of those players will be on the next 50, so you can't compare these two teams, because when you do that, it's a disservice to the current team. we must support our current team. we must do the dance. we must believe. i believe, i believe. i believe that we will win. i believe that we will win. >> bruce, i tell you, when you talk, it's like listening to muhammad ali sometimes, you get fired up ready to fight. sunny and robert, what do you think? gold medal in basketball, the olympics? >> no question about it. usa is going to get the gold. >> hang on, hang on. team usa looks great. >> who said hang on? >> why are we not talking about team croatia? one of the best basketball teams -- >> you ruined the whole moment. >> because we don't live in croatia. we live in the great u.s. of a. >> what? >> bruce, i'm with you. >> bring on the champ, bruce.

between conventions, meeting voters, having conversations and we're going to talk to him about all that live coming up, but first we've got a health alert about some vitamin supplements. "consumer reports" is out with a new warning about certain dietary aids, they looked at a wide variety and found some can pose possible health risks. millions of health conscious americans take daily supplements, hoping to reap health benefits from weight loss and energy boost to lower cholesterol and memory enhancement but according to a new analysis by "consumer reports" some supplements may be doing more harm than good to your body. >> supplements are not regulated by the fda as a drug. they're regulated as a food and as a result, they have far less stringent regulations applied to them. they do not have to be proven to be safe and don't have to be proven to be effective to end up on store shelves. >> reporter: according to "consumer reports," some supplements may give consumers more than they bargained for.
8:16 am
some found come tamed in heavy metals. other contain prescription or experimental or illegal drugs which could lead to serious organ damage, cancer or cardiac arrest. >> what we really want is for there to be laws enacted that ensure that the safety of supplements have been proven before they end up on store shelves. >> reporter: some could cause harmful side effects and make some prescription medications less effective. >> supplements have labels that don't necessarily tell you what they're good for, how they're going to work, whether they will work. and you can't trust that they're going to work or that they're going to be safe by looking at the label. >> reporter: all right, joining us now our senior medical contributor dr. jen ashton who recently got her masters in nutrition, so congratulations on that. >> thank you, sir. >> welcome to the show as usual. "consumer reports" found that more than half of american dulls believe these companies test their products to make sure they're safe. but what is your take on the benefits and risks of
8:17 am
supplements. >> you know, it's a complex issue and it's not a yes or no question or answer. you are know, on the one hand i used to tell patients if they're healthy and eat well and don't have a chronic illness that supplements are unnecessary. but the reality is and i see this every day in my practice, a lot of people don't eat well or can't get these nutrients from food and they do have chronic conditions or on medications that make it difficult so it doesn't mean all good or all bad, it just means how to do it safely because this is an industry that has much looser regulations than prescription medication. >> but are there any supplements out there that are particularly bad and that you should avoid? >> 100%. so first of all you should avoid anything that promises or claims to be the fountain of youth or anything that says it's going to prevent or treat or cure a condition. then there are these big categories and they include you mentioned some of them in the piece, weight loss, muscle building, sexual enhance many, depression or mood disorders. these are kind of the red flags.
8:18 am
we have to remember supplements more does not mean better and natural does not mean safer. >> and, you know, but the vitamin, supplement sales are up so a lot are buying into this. what supplements do you think may be medically warranted. >> for some peep, not a whole list but pregnant women, we know they can benefit from supplements. people who are on certain medications, especially like proton pump inhibitors that have had weight loss surgery are those who have documented or diagnosed medical conditions or deficiencies, b12 and d very commonly described and recommended to elderly people and look for that usp seal, an indication that it has been tested and is relatively safe. >> make sure you look for that seal. you're not done and you'll keep helping us because dr. ashton will tweet out a full list of supplement suggestions. next it's workout wednesday. our fitness expert is sharing her best moves out there until times square. we have that coming up next and look at ginger zee go making it

sparking action around the globe, shifting the focus from me to we. we know we need that to help other, of course, so many of your favorite stars joining in, charlize thee ron, selena go negomez. right here on abc, can't wait to see all of them together, lara. >> ginger, thank you very much. hey, "pop news," we said that this was the last season of "scandal." shonda has weighed in. she just tweeted and she said that we made her spit out her coffee. my apology. she has an ending in mind but that ending is not happening this next season so, ah, thank you, shonda. >> you can breathe. >> we can all breathe because as you know it is my absolute favorite show so correction, ending in mind but when that ending is happening we don't know. so to be continued on the "scandal" scandal. >> more "scandal." >> more "scandal."
8:37 am
so shonda, sorry i made you spit out your coffee. all right, "gma on the lookout." summertime and lots of homeowners using power washers to clean anythings outside their house but there could be a hidden danger. mara schiavocampo is in north caldwell, new jersey, with more. good morning, mara. >> reporter: lara, good morning. power washers like these are very popular in the summer. used on everything from concrete to even your barbecue grill but experts warn that they are much more powerful than your typical garden hose and they could lead to serious injury. pressure washers can blast through many summer cleaning projects but with all that power can come danger. >> almost the whole top part of my knuckle off. >> reporter: ben skydell makes a living working with outdoor tools. >> pressure washers can cause a lot of damage. >> reporter: so much damage 6,000 people went to the emergency room in 2014 with pressure washer related injuries. a portion of those attributed to
8:38 am
powerful spray. most consumer pressure washers come with different noddles for increased water pressure depending on the job. this nozzle is 40 degrees. this is 25. and this red one is the most powerful at 0 degrees. the red nozzle so potentially dangerous, "consumer reports" issuing a safety alert. >> we don't think power washer manufacturers should even be including a zero degree nozzle and we are asking that the industry actually take them out. >> reporter: "consumer reports" showing "gma on the lookout" how in a matter of seconds these red nozzles can cut through a carrot. >> if that's your hand what kind of injury is that going to cause? >> this will definitely slice through your skin. >> reporter: and even if you're wearing shoes. so if your feet were in there, would not be good. >> reporter: manufacturers warn consumers when you buy a new pressure washer, but what happens when you rent one? we went undercover to three tool rental stores in new jersey to
8:39 am
see if they come with that red nozzle and if we're warned about the potential danger. all three stores gave us a quick demo. they all came with the ability to spray zero degrees and only one warned us about the potential danger. >> don't use the red one. the red one is too strong. >> reporter: two are warnings that said they could cause severe injury. we reached out to all three businesses and said their paperwork warns customers of potential dangers. the cleaning equipment trade association tells us the wand lengths make it difficult to direct the discharge stream at yourself and the warning instructions state to wear eye protection, hold spray gun with both hands and do not direct discharge stream at people along with other warnings. all right, so you see i have my stylish safety goggles on and important to wear sturdy shoes and we'll show you exactly why. yon is here from underwriters laboratories. he is going to show us what this can do to a flip-flop.
8:40 am
how it's going to slice right through it. if you wear open toe shoes like that, definitely not a good thing. "consumer reports" is actually asking manufacturers to remove those red nozzles altogether and point out you can still get the same cleaning job done without them. it'll just take a little more time but it will be much safer, lara. >> wow, that visual tells a story. thank you very much. coming up here, we have michael's powerful exclusive interview with former nfl star steve fwleegs. you do not want to miss it.
8:41 am
it's a pretty simple question: is pat toomey's agenda your agenda? toomey voted seven times to defund planned parenthood. he even tried to shut down the federal government in order to eliminate funding for planned parenthood. and toomey's against a woman's right to choose and supports overturning roe v. wade which would allow states to criminalize abortion. pat toomey: he's focused on his own agenda, not us.

all right, back now with my exclusive interview with football hero steve gleason and a personal hero of mine, his wife michel turning heartbreak into inspiration. steve was diagnosed with als in 2011, just weeks before his wife learned she was pregnant. what they decided to do next will blow you away. september 2006, the new orleans saints back in the superdome for the first time since hurricane katrina ravaged their city. early in the game, defensive back steve gleason blocks a punt for his team. reigniting the fire within so
8:44 am
many who lost so much. >> look out. breakthrough. caught by steve gleason. >> reporter: gleason, a hero then and a hero now but for a different reason. >> i've been diagnosed with am joe trophic lateral sclerosis which can a disease in the motor neurons and this disease is almost always fatal. >> reporter: within a few years, the once forceful football player loses his ability to move, to talk and eventually to breathe. today he relies on a computer to speak and a ventilator to stay alive. one second you walk out onto the feel and you're seen as a hero. and then you can't control your simple body functions. so how do yyou deal with that dichotomy. >> here's my thinking. my life ain't easy but it's awesome. i had some incredible moments on the football field. but i've had even more uplifting
8:45 am
moments off the field. since diagnosis. >> reporter: six weeks after the diagnosis, his wife michel finds out she's pregnant. the young couple's new mission, to record hundreds of videos for their unborn son named rivers. while steve still has the chance. >> hey, how are you? how are you now. >> when we learned about rivers it made sense to me to share with rivers as much of myself as possible. >> boo. >> reporter: 1300 hours of video becoming a documentary called "gleason." why did you decide to share this -- these moments? i mean you're so open, but you're sharing this to the world in this movie? what made you decide to do it. >> we could have made a movie that glosses over the hard parts and just showed the hero part and the easy parts, we wanted to show the truth if we're going to do this we'll go all out and show the truth of our lives. >> how is it raising a son when you have als. >> i'm relentlessly pursuing
8:46 am
ways to be a better dad. i pick up rivers every day from school. i'm at all of his practices. i get to help get him ready for bed at night. i love being rivers' daddy. >> reporter: throughout the film, there is some moments of incredible humor. how do you keep that going? >> you got to do something and we're both funny. we're both funny people, i think, so laughing has been one of the best solutions to get through this because otherwise like what else are you going to do? you know. you get funnier after diagnosis. >> humor in the face of adversity is an excellent weapon. i like to say i'm a naturally funny dude but in reality i think i just have no choice. humor is definitely healing. so i think we've tried to use it that way. >> i mean it was amazing to sit
8:47 am
there with steve and his wife michel and, you know, one thing about all the people with als including steve is although he's lost his ability to move, to talk and all those things his brain works perfectly. >> he's got a great sense of humor. >> he has a great sense of humor. >> he's smart as a whip. the first thing he did was give me a hard time when i walked in the room because i pronounced when i was commentating on fox he remembered something i did in 2011 where -- or 2 thou -- yeah, '11, i messed up the name of scott fujita and called him scott fajita and he buffed me on it and teased me on it. we had to give him his questions in advance since it takes him longer to respond through his computer and as you see, inspirational and his wife michel is amazing, as well. this documentary is a movie, "gleason" and opens in select theaters friday. you can see more of my interview with steve and michel gleason on "nightline" on friday, as well. >> unbelievable. >> thank you for sharing. coming up next, pentatonix. they're here performing live.
