7:02 am
>> we'll have much on that. first, we're going to begin with the calls for a peaceful transition of power from president obama. there he is touching down in greece just hours ago for his final international trip as president. back here at home anti-trump protests like this one at ohio state university escalating. abc's tom llamas is here with more on the reaction to donald trump's election and who will be joining his white house. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. the trump despite some controversy over his first hires. this as some of trump's closest allies are giving us a glimpse of what may be ahead. trump loyalist rudy giuliani may soon be joining president-elect donald trump in the white house. giuliani saying he won't be trump's attorney general but he may be secretary of state. both giuliani and former u.n. ambassador john bolton are contenders for the post. >> john would be a very good choice. >> is there anybody better? >> maybe me. i don't know.
7:03 am
trump's first decisions is coming under scrutiny. elevating his campaign ceo steve bannon to chief strategist and white house counselor. >> don't believe the main stream media. don't believe the establishment. do not believe the permanent political class. we are on the right side of history. >> reporter: bannon who ran breitbart led the charge to turn the conservative site into a platform for the alt-right. a movement many have accused of being racist and anti-semitic. from house m pelosi this blunt statement, there must be no sugar-coating the reality that a white nationalist has been named chief strategist for the trump administration. trump advisers slamming those descriptions of bannon. >> he's been the general of this campaign and, frankly, people should look at the full resume. he's got a harvard business degree. he's a naval officer. he has success in entertainment. i don't know if you're aware of that. >> reporter: in his first news conference since the election president obama revealing that during that oval office meeting
7:04 am
should reach out to the groups that opposed him and realize the importance of his post-election decisions. >> how he staffs, the first steps he takes, the first impressions he makes. the reset that can happen after an election. >> reporter: obama telling americans to give president-elect trump a chance and offered his successor this stern advice. >> there are going to be certain elements of his temperament that will not serve him well unless he recognizes them and corrects them. >> reporter: and before he wrapped up his news conference president obama also had some advice for his own party saying they have to spend the time in small towns and states like iowa to create political bases that deliver votes and victories on election day. george? >> okay, tom, thanks. joining me now fox news anchor megyn kelly out with a new book "settle for more." we're going to talk about that in a little bit. but let's first look at these
7:05 am
steve bannon, reince priebus, maybe rudy giuliani. to the victors go the spoils. >> absolutely right and trump is entitled to surround himself with the people he most trusts. bannon is really the only one so far that's caused a lot of controversy. sort of like a tale of two cities where you've got reince priebus who is more establishment which trump has been railing against and steve bannon who spent his entire career railing against the establishment. >> he says they are going to be equal partners but what does that mean inside the white house. this could set up kind of a civil war. >> it could be awkward but what i'm hearing is steve bannon will really be in charge. that he's the one. he's the trump whisperer. >> even though he's not the chief of staff? >> yeah, this is an unusual situation because normally, the chief of staff would be the one who is. we're being told steve bannon will have the ear of donald trump. i don't know what that means for reince priebus. maybe president-elect trump needs somebody to work the hill and staffing decisions. >> that would suggest perhaps president obama was wrong in his judgment when he said he doesn't think trump is ideological and thinks he's pragmatic. >> well, i think, both are true. i think both are true. he is not ideological and that
7:06 am
steve bannon though he is a controversial figure has advised donald trump very well. you remember trump's campaign was really flailing until bannon came in. a guy who doesn't run political campaigns but who completely understands these working class americans who have had it with washington and the so-called establishment. >> what do you say to those who say it's bringing a white supremacist into the white house? >> i don't know there's evidence of that. you know, i think people need to -- >> the breitbart headlines. >> the breitbart headline, his defenders, they're absolutely controversial. but what his defenders say is he's not responsible for every single headline that went up on breitbart while he was the executive chairman. and that that website is known for being provocative. and so they're looking for cliques. now it definitely appeals to a segment of the so-called alt-right, which does include some white supremacists. but i don't know that you could tar the entire team with
7:07 am
man is controversial. >> we'll talk more about your book coming up in the next half hour. you called 2016 your year of trump. and it really details all of your encounter, the tough encounters. what does that tell you about what kind of president he will be? and how can you put that all >> i have a year of doing it so now it's easy to cover him because we're out of that weird place that we were in. it definitely poses challenges when he was coming after me so relentlessly and causing security issues in my life and the life of my family but i did it. and it was a test of me as a person and a professional and i think my team and i at "the kelly file" managed to navigate it pretty well. what it tells me about what kind of president he will be? listen, no question he is thin-skinned and can be mean-spirited and vindictive but my own experience with him proves that he's able to let things go if he so chooses, right. he came after me like a dog with a bone for nine months. but finally, when i went to see him at trump tower.
7:08 am
conciliatory toward him, we got past it. i think he has a magnanimous piece of him. he has a charming piece to him as well. and while i think trump doesn't like it when he feels attacked, if he feels like you're open-minded or at least neutral toward him, he becomes a bit more open-minded. often the problem is he feels attacked when he's not. >> "settle for more" is out today. we'll talk about that. donald trump, roger ailes in our next half hour. robin? >> okay, george. now to new questions about the internet's possible effect onhe after fake news stories trended online, facebook and google are now reportedly taking steps to curb those sites. our chief business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here. so, rebecca, how are they responding? >> well, robin, they are responding big this morning and if you've spent any time on the internet and social media chances are you've seen these fake news stories but might not even know it. for example, we googled this morning, who won the popular vote?
7:09 am
search results, a fake story claiming donald trump did. now, votes are still coming in, but hillary clinton is ahead in the popular vote by a wide margin, then there's this on facebook, trump loses support of police union after saying tulsa shooting cop choked. that's not true either. well, now google and facebook are targeting how the creators of these fake news sites make money. that's advertising. google announcing overnight it will prevent websites that push phony news from using its ad sense advertising and facebook announcing it is updating steps on that, too. >> thank you. we move to that breaking news from missouri. an accused killer escaped from jail after a door was left open. our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas has the latest on the search, good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. that's right. a massive manhunt now under way for a convict that police believe is armed and dangerous. daniel campbell charged with first-degree murder and assault
7:10 am
he was wearing a jump suit and no shoes when he escaped through a door that was open while construction work was going on at the jail. they believe he stole a dodge pickup truck two hours later with a deer rifle inside. scary situation unfolding for the people in that area, george. >> okay, pierre, thanks very much. >> scary, indeed. now to that stunning verdict in that hot car trial in georgia. justin ross harris found guilty on all eight charges convicted of murdering his son by leaving him locked in a car for hours. abc's marietta, georgia, with more. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. this was a surprising result for many who have been following this case closely from the very beginning. jurors not only agreed this father was negligent but that he intended to kill his son. >> we find the defendant guilty. >> reporter: justin ross harris sat nearly stone-faced as jurors delivered blow after blow.
7:11 am
defendant guiltily. >> reporter: guilty on all eight charges from murder to child cruelty and seconding with an underage girl which prosecutors say was happening while his son was dying outside his atlanta office in this silver suv. the jury of six women and six men decided that 22-month-old cooper harris was killed intentionally after being strapped into this rear-facing car seat by his father and left for more than seven hours in the parked car on a summer day in 2014. >> you had to accept that somebody is capable of this level of evil. it really affected everybody. >> reporter: harris failed to accident. that he simply forgot to drop his son off at day care on his way in to work that morning. his now ex-wife even took his side. >> if he was never checked in, then he must have forgot. >> reporter: during deliberations last week jurors asked again to look at a police station video where harris and the boy's mother are heard discussing the story he told authorities. >> did you say too much? >> all i did was tell them the
7:12 am
planning to appeal. >> from the moment we met ross harris, we've never once ever once wavered in our absolute belief that he's not guilty of what he's just been convicted of. >> reporter: harris is looking at life in prison. and he'll be sentenced in this courthouse behind me here in marietta, georgia, on december 5th. george? >> okay, steve, thanks very much. now to that smoke and fire tearing across the southeast. eight states battling flames right now and abc's north carolina, where firefighters have been working all through the night. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, george. you can see the fire coming down the mountain. we're staying across the street from it. firefighters telling us that trees could fall down here. this morning, there's no end in sight to the flames. flames crawling up and down mountains all across the southeast. thousands of firefighters from as far as way as alaska battling
7:13 am
states. authorities say many deliberately set. >> we do also ask for cooperation with anyone who has information on anyone who may have started any of these fires. we do believe most of these fires are man-made. >> reporter: in north carolina, the party rock fire around chimney rock forcing 1,000 people out of their homes. mandatory evacuations in place. the ongoing drought creating dry conditions fueling the fires. some burning for more than a month. and no rain in the forecast any time soon. for now you can see the fire is moving very slowly down the mountain, jumping over the roads, as it continues to move down. >> we could have these challenges through march. >> reporter: the widespread smoke prompting air quality warnings, code red in western north carolina, orange in parts of georgia, some residents wearing masks. >> just went in my lungs and i had to get out of here. >> reporter: another problem here, you can see there's still leaves on the trees, when those leaves fall, it can reignite the flames. michael?
7:14 am
let's turn to david kerley standing by reagan national airport where it sounds like there was a scary moment in the sky on monday, david. >> reporter: yeah, it was a very scary moment, michael. a couple of pilots took evasive action thinking they saw a drone and injured two of their own flight attendants. the investigation this morning into what the pilots of a plane with 54 passengers on board saw coming towards them, leading to their severe action. the pilots making a sharp two flight attendants thrown in the cabin and injured. once on the ground the pilots said they thought it was a drone coming towards them. >> they see a flash. they see something at an altitude where they would not expect another airplane or something to be flying. and sharp turn to get away from whatever it is.
7:15 am
attendants were treated and released in toronto. already this year, pilots' sightings of drones are up 40% compared to all of last year. >> we almost got hit by a drone. just to let you know. >> reporter: the worry what happens if it hits a passenger plane. i'm just hovering. there are several efforts like this one to come up with technology to counter drones. this government funded corporation can overpower a drone's signal, taking over control of the drone and flying it to safety. of course, an aircraft traveling at several hundred miles an hour, the pilots have split-second decision. and that ams what those canadian pilots did yesterday, robin, to get out of the way of what they thought was a drone. >> they make those quick decisions, you're right. amy with the other top stories including tourists trapped after the earth wake in new zealand. >> a u.s. warship arrived to help evacuate thousands of residents who are stranded in towns cut off by monday's powerful earthquake. a nine-story building in danger of collapsing at this hour. prompting evacuation orders there. damage right now estimated in
7:16 am
you yesterday stranded there on that hill after a landslide have now been rescued. well, some u.s. service members and cia operatives could face charges for the alleged torture of detainees in afghanistan. the international criminal court says there is evidence americans tortured more than 80 prisoners back in 2003 and 2004. a full investigation is possible which could lead to charges. and this morning, we want to take a moment to pay tribute to a pioneering journalist, gwen ifill. the role model for so many reporters, bh has died of cancer at the age of 61. >> good evening, i'm judy woodruff. >> and i'm gwen ifill. >> reporter: one-half of the first all-female anchor team on net work nightly news. >> how are you? >> hi, mr. president. >> reporter: gwen ifill once told "the new york times" that as a little girl watching the news, she would look up and not see anyone who looked like me in any way. >> that's why diversity matters. you're bringing a different life experience to your interpretation. >> reporter: the trailblazing
7:17 am
graduated from simmons college recalling her first news internship at "the boston herald american" on the pbs series "makers." >> i call myself the lonely only, because there were no other black women really in that situation at that time. but that didn't stop me. >> reporter: and nothing could stop her. >> is it fair for americans who fear government to fear you? >> reporter: ifill covering politics for three decades. a fixture behind the moderators' desk. >> was this the worst of washington or the best of washington that we saw play ou >> reporter: the reporter and author's legacy shining bright for those future journalists also watching the news every night. >> as long as i remember there's someone on the other side of the piece of equipment, the camera, i have to take what i do seriously every single day. >> and i love what gwen said so many times. she wanted to bring light, not heat, to issues and i also loved your beautiful tribute to gwen on facebook. i saw that and it really was remarkable. you all had such a relationship. >> yes, she reached out when she
7:18 am
and i think about what stuart scott said. you don't lose your battle to cancer. and you know this, amy. you don't lose your battle to cancer. you beat cancer by how you live and the manner in which you live and she was a shining example of that. wonderful the things president obama said about her. >> i was on both sides of the table from her and first covered the clinton campaign, the clinton courthouse, she was fierce and fearless, a very, very tough reporter but then when the day was done, a warm and caring and really joyful human being. >> she'll be missed. >> she sure will. let's go to rob with the weather. >> he we have got a raw and rainy day ahead of us. normally we wouldn't celebrate this but we need it in new york and boston. heavier bands rotating in. severe drought in much of the northeast. a game-changer coming into the west. this is going to drop snow in the intermountain west. and plains. and much colder air behind this and lake-effect know this weekend and the cold will get all the way down into the deep

7:20 am
allegations against her former fox news boss roger ailes. that is only on "gma." a new twist in that "making a murderer" case. why a judge is now ordering one of the convicted killers featured in that netflix docu-series, the judge is saying he should be set free. we'll talk about that and much more. come on back. r. roller derby. ? now give up half of 'em. this is a tough financial choice we could face when we retire. but, if we start saving even just 1% more of our annual income... we could keep doing all the things we love.

7:22 am
's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured. be sure to ask your doctor to get tested for hep c. for us it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.

alive" issue. >> david beckham graced the cover last year. we are moments away from out who graces the cover. michael, what is it like? >> they only put me in there because of my son. you have to ask him. >> we have a lot more coming up. first more from megyn kelly, her new book "settle for more" is out today and a quick look back at her rocky relationships with donald trump and her former boss roger ailes. >> you've called women like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. >> the feud began with that first question. >> what i say is what i say and honestly, megyn, if you don't like it, i'm sorry. i've been very nice to you although i probably could not be based on the way you've treated me but i wouldn't do that. >> reporter: a torrent of insults followed calling her a bimbo, unprofessional and crazy. >> you could see there was blood
7:32 am
coming out of her wherever. >> i was referring to nose, ears, and only a deviant would think of that. >> i became the story. you never want to be the story when you're a news person. >> reporter: now in her new book "settle for more" -- >> it's a personal book. roo he vrieling and under an embargo. they would have to hurt you if you found it. >> reporter: "the kelly file" anchor says her interview with donald trump began six months before he announced his claimed he tried to charm her and offer her trips and gifts clearly meant to slip coverage. >> i had a meeting with donald trump. >> reporter: she found herself part of the story after gretchen carlson filed a sexual harassment suit against roger ailes. after carlson spoke out kelly told her bosses that at the start of her career, ailes made unwanted advances against her too. shortly after ailes was fired from fox. and megyn kelly is back right now. thanks for coming back. let's start right there.
7:33 am
co-chairman lackland murdoch. what did you tell him? >> well, i mean, listen, i wrestled with what to do. i wasn't sure what the truth was about roger. >> you knew what he did to you. >> exactly. and that's one of the bizarre things. i knew my own experience but he and i had gone on to have nine years of a healthy working relationship and so in my mind i had attributed it to he was interested in me, that he was having a marital difficulty, perhaps he was just interested in h affair. and i didn't -- >> he was explicit about that? as explicit as you could be. i mean it was very on the nose and then it culminated in a physical attempt to be with me which i rejected in his office and then i -- >> he touched you. >> he tried to kiss me three times. >> so i rejected that and when i rejected that he asked me when my contract was up. as soon as i left his office i called a lawyer and i did bring the matter to a supervisor at fox news.
7:34 am
me. and that person vouched for roger's character, assured me he was a good man, he was likely just smitten and that i should try to avoid him which is what i did. >> as you know roger ailes put out a statement through his attorney that says, i deny the allegations megyn makes about me. i worked tirelessly to promote her career. as megyn admitted to charlie rose, watch that interview and decide for your several. this is what he was referring to on charlie rose. >> i really care about and he's been nothing but good to me and he's been very loyal and he's had my back. >> so how do you square that when what you're writing now. >> both things can be true. ray woman can be harassed and go on to have a good working relationship with the man harassing her and that is what happened in my case. i avoided roger for six months after my supervisor suggested that was the proper course to pursue and sure enough, he stopped. and i was down in the d.c.
7:35 am
he was up in new york. this is all laid out in the book in great detail. but he stopped and we went on to have a healthy working relationship and what he said about promoing me and having my back is true. and it was one of the reasons why even i found it hard to believe that he was a serial harasser, george, when the lawsuit broke and then women started coming forward anonymously but it soon became clear upon reading the allegations that at least an investigation was necessary. >> so did any part of you think come out earlier publicly? >> listen, it's hard to say to to that because i know now the number of women targeted and it's disturbing, but realistically and this is one reason i wrote about it in the book, realistically that would have been a suicide mission for me and my career because i had been there 12 months, not the megyn kelly of today. i had no power and he was on the cover of industry magazines as
7:36 am
there was no one to go to. if i had gone to the general counsel of the company it would have been me first year person -- >> leads to a tough question for fox news as well. if gretchen carlson hadn't sued, would roger ailes still be the chairman of fox news? >> i think so. i think so. i mean because we all have arbitration clauses which prevented us from filing public lawsuits which her filing publicly was a big step in this whole process. i'll tell you, what i wanted was for it to investigation into him. that's all i really wanted because i didn't know whether it was just me, just gretchen, who -- is this a serial problem or not and that's why i called lackland murdoch to tell me, it didn't bring me any joy but to tell him it did happen to me ten years earlier and that they needed to take a hard look at who they had running the company and within days they had announced they had hired paul weiss and i cooperated with that investigation and i think it wound up as it should have have
7:37 am
trump. take us inside that meeting where you basically tried to bury the hatchet. what did you say and do? >> so the actual meeting was off the record so i don't want to get into the specific content. i went over there. i walked in. and he gave me a nice greeting. he hugged me. >> he hugged you. >> yes, which i -- >> how did you accept that. >> well, i talk about it in the book that it was bizarre, right, to be hugging this man who had tried to torment me for nine months and who had security and all sorts of things that are detailed in the book. but i accepted it for the gesture it was which i think was a goodwill gesture to try to say if not i'm sorry, then let's move on. which is what i was doing there. so i neither apologized to him nor did he apologize to me and after the meeting we discussed the state of the race, we did not discuss his nine-month campaign against me. we tabled that but was a reset of sorts that worked for us. >> you had a tough conversation
7:38 am
daughter yeardley. she said she was afraid of him. >> so she's a recurring character in this book as are all three of my children but yeardley is amazing and i talk about how a year ago after i went to the fortune most powerful women's conference she said, what is that? i said it's a gathering of really strong women who celebrate their accomplishments and i was taking yeardley down there with me and she said, are we two of them? and then a year not quite a year presidential debate in detroit and that's when she told me she was afraid of donald trump. i had never revealed to her any of the things trump had done. president-elect trump had done. but she is 5 and she hears things in this world and one of the lowest points was when she came home and asked me what a bimbo was and i just thought, you know, the same girl who thought she was being honored at the most powerful women's conference had learned a new word which was one of the low points of the year.
7:39 am
what's next for you? publicly, everyone knows your contract is up next year. can you stay at fox after all this? >> oh, sure, i mean, i can easily stay at fox. i can go hopefully anywhere i want. i don't think anything happened in that the past year that limited that. i think trump and i are -- president-elect trump. we're all getting used to that are on better terms and i'm grateful fox news has given me the 12 years i've had there and want me to stay a opinion the murdochs who are running it are honorable men would want to do what's right and -- is there do you want to stay. >> i'm figuring that out. it's not really appropriate to discuss with you, george, i'm on "good morning america" but i'm figuring that out. as much as i love my job i love those three little lives that my husband and i brought into the world. this is my philosophy i need to settle for more and that's the name of the book. >> thanks for coming in. our big board that "making a

back here, time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's top stories. we've got our legal team with us, we got sunny, sunny is here, dan is here. so we'll talk about legal issues. all right, so let's start with that new twist in the "making a murderer" case. a federal judge i brendan dassey be released from prison after he and his uncle steven avery were found guilty of murder nearly a decade ago. now, this has taken some time for this. why is he being released now? >> his conviction was overturned in august basically the judge at the time said i'll effectively give 90 days because the prosecution can still appeal this ruling. the prosecution did appeal. but at this point the judge is basically saying, look, i'm not
7:43 am
forever considering the ruling that i issued. now, prosecutors are now effectively saying, well wooshgs ale's go file an emergency appeal to try to make sure he stays behind bars. i think it's unlikely that they're going to get that. and as a result i think it's likely that dassey will be released in the next couple of weeks but sounds like prosec prosecutors are also going to retry him so it's possible that he could get convicted again although i think that's unlikely based on the lack of evidence. >> with the possibility of dassey getting out, what is the latest on his uncle's case? >> totally separate case, right. the case against brendan dassey in my view was always weak. the case against steven avery is a totally different story. from the defense's perspective they want to retest the blood to see if maybe it was planted. they want to be able to do a type of testing called carbon testing which can maybe date the blood. i don't think that's going to make much of a difference. their lawyer thinks it will. their lawyer has been saying
7:44 am
avery's lawyer is saying again and again he will eventually be exonerated. i think it will be very difficult. >> before we weigh in on your case, what do you think on this, sunny. >> i think it's interesting we're even talking about this case because of the documentary and so it leads to that notion of transparency. we don't have cameras in a lot of courtrooms, not even inside the supreme court and i think this case sort of highlights the fact that we need those cameras in courtrooms and need those in the supreme court because i think it uncovers a lot of things. i mean look at the confession in this case. this confession was beyond the pale but we only know about it because of the cameras >> that's it. good point. >> i love having our legal team here. tag team. >> this is awesome. why don't we do this every day. >> i love when i don't need advice. all right. now up next we need you both for this too. they say diamonds are forever but maybe not for this one manhattan couple. "the new york post" reports a man is suing his ex-fiancee over
7:45 am
their wedding was canceled at the last minute and, sunny, oh, man. >> that's a lot of money. >> neither one will comment on the case but could the court make her return the ring? >> the court could, michael. you know what's interesting. this is the question that i get the most from our viewers, i get this question almost every week. who gets the ring? most states don't want to be involved in matters of the heart so most states say, you know what, i don't care who is at fault bottom line is if the ring back. those states are new york, pennsylvania, iowa, kansas, new jersey, new mexico and wisconsin. but there are a couple of states that say, i do want to get involved. those states are california, texas, they say, you know what, if you are the dumper, the dumpee gets to keep the ring. >> the dumpee. >> how do people protect themselves when engaged? >> you know what i'll tell my son, robin, i'll say give her my ring, because family heirlooms
7:46 am
she breaks that engagement off you get the ring back. the other thing i'll advise him, dent propose on a holiday. if you propose on christmas or hanukkah, many courts say that was a gift that wasn't part of the engagement and you get to keep it. >> that's a lot of work, sunny. >> sorry. >> a question of whether it's a conditional gift or not. is it conditioned upon us getting married as opposed to on a holiday where you basically said it could have been a christmas gift. >> this is a question for everybody. we know wha but what about just social etiquette. do you give the ring back? >> you know what, you dump me, i'm not giving the ring back. but look at mariah carey. mariah carey gets to keep her ring. >> it's only damages. basically to me the only reason you keep it is damages to say, you know what, i was so wronged and i'd be entitled to x amount of dollars. instead i'll take this bling and i'll go home. >> sunny went to the what would mariah do defense.
7:47 am
someone you got to suck it up. >> $125,000 damages clause. basically said you break up with me that's how much this is costing you. >> no mas. coming up in two minutes finally time. we'll reveal the one and only "people" magazine sexiest man alive. ean better than a manual. he said sure, but don't just get any one. get one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head! go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque and oral-b crossaction delivers a clinically proven superior clean vs. sonicare diamondclean. my mouth feels super clean! oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean.

we've been through a lot of trauma no matter what color we are, no matter what uniform we got on. you guys are my family. nothing more important than family today. it's good to be together. lets enjoy. ? as soon as i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot, i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to.
7:52 am
or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. our special today is the seared ahi tuna. don't you hate that? when they don't tell you how much something costs and you have to ask? maybe that's why i always make sure to...

8:03 am
but my own experience with him proves that he's able to let things go if he so chooses. >> reporter: meanwhile, anti-trump protests expanding with students walking out of schools from california to maryland. a student at ohio state university was arrested for tack tackling an anti-trump protester. president obama arrived in greece on his final overseas trip as president trying to's assure european leaders about a trump presidency saying the u.s. will reafill its relationship with nato. this man punched the other right in the face. order was restored but a moment later they were at it again arguing about russia. well, back here in this country new details about the police shooting in cart that led to days of protests in september. an autopsy reveals keith scott was shot three types including once in the back. an anti-anxiety medication and a

it's a tangle of multiple symptoms. ? ? trintellix (vortioxetine) is a prescription medicine for depression. trintellix may start to untangle or help improve the multiple symptoms of depression. for me, trintellix made a difference. tell your healthcare professional right away if your depression worsens, or you have unusual changes in mood, antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. trintellix has not been studied in children. do not take with maois. tell your healthcare professional about your medications, including migraine, psychiatric and depression medications to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. increased risk of bleeding or bruising may occur especially if taken with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners. manic episodes or vision problems may occur in some people. may cause low sodium levels. the most common side effects are nausea,
8:12 am
trintellix did not have significant impact on weight. ask your healthcare professional if trintellix could make a difference for you.

8:13 am
back here on "gma" we're cracking the kid code looking at kids and technology and the big debate over whether you should monitor your kids' cell phone. t.j. sat down with a mother says yes. >> robin, let me be perfectly clear here. we are talking about flat out spying on your child. there are some apps out there that will allow a parent to see everything their child is doing on the phone even deleted techs, some parents might be itching to run out and get that app but others, it brings up this heated question, does a child's right to privacy, is it actually trumped by a parent's desire to protect?
8:14 am
many adults will never know but there's one who does. >> you can't hide from me. >> reporter: christine presti, mom of isabella and michael was so anxious to know what they are kids were doing than air phones she secretly installed spyware to watch them and can see anything. it's legal to monitor your kids but a controversy lurks. do teens deserve privacy? or is secretly monitoring for safety sake more important? >> at 11 and 13, we should know what's goingn >> what's the problem with letting you see your phone. >> i like some privacy. >> reporter: last summer christine says isabella suddenly became more secretive. >> i immediately think that something is going on. >> reporter: so she downloads spy software on both kids' phone sflsz were you torn? >> nope. >> you were not. >> not one bit. they are my kids an i needed to protect them. >> reporter: experts say secret monitoring may hurt your children and your relationship with them in the long run.
8:15 am
of "how to raise an adult." >> every moment is effectively saying, i do not trust you in the slightest. >> how do you tell them you trust them when you spy on them? >> wow, i hope they just know that i do trust them and that i'm doing this just to protect them. >> reporter: using the app christine discovers isabella is texting someone she thinks is a teenager. but when christine calls the number, she gets a it's an adult. >> she thought she was talking to a friend and it turned out that it wasn't. >> reporter: christine blocked the caller. still it was a scary moment. >> went through every scenario. meeting somebody. kidnapping. >> reporter: christine knew she had to confront her daughter which meant confessing about the spyware but isabella came clean first. >> she came down the stairs and was like, i need to talk to you. >> she beat you to it. >> she beat me to it. >> isabella told her about the
8:16 am
also saw the other side. >> i had a lot of different emotions like why is she doing this but was happy because i knew she was protecting me. >> your momma loves you. 2 for 2, the piece today and the one today. our chief medical editor dr. richard besser is here and callahan walsh, friend of the program is hire, nice to see you, cal. dr. besser, let me start with you. should you monitor your child's cell phone? >> i don't think so. pediatrician, i know that what concerns us most is our children's safety. but in order to ensure that there's all kinds of dangers, i think you need to develop a relationship in which you show you trust your child show they can trust you to come to you with anything and i think this can torpedo everything. >> we believe parents should monitor their youngest children
8:17 am
waters but for the older kids we want parents to have ongoing empowered conversations to make sure those kids can make those safe and smart decisions on their owns. parents can go blue in their face monitoring them all day but they're not always going to be there. >> i also believe, you got two sons. >> t.j. has a young daughter. you have a little time. >> some of this even from the parps is not just a matter of making sure the kid is safe but for the parent's peace of mind to break trust, the parent just needs that comfort to know i got an eye on everything. >> you bring up trust and now i want to ask you both about that. as a pediatrician do you feel that that could damage the trust between -- >> well, i think it could. you know, if -- as a parent, the idea of bubble wrapping your child and protecting them until they're dulls and releasing them is comforting but if your child doesn't trust you as they hit the teen years facing decisions
8:18 am
i worry that if they don't feel there's trust, those tough issues they're not going to come to you and could be riskier. >> aren't there some times you know your child and know something is not right here and want to weigh in. >> again, we want parents to empower their kids. this may be an option the parents need to take. that phone is often bought by the parent, paid for by the parent and that's the responsibility till they turn now. i bought this phone. >> i'll take you out. >> this is a serious conversation to have and i know one that parents struggle with. it's about spying. i know we're running out of time. is spying a bad thing? what if you let your kid know we're going to keep an eye -- >> i think you need to set up rules up front as to what's allowable and if you see a behavior or something different that you're going to sit down and go over it together because that's not acceptable. >> work together. >> technology, set ground rules
8:19 am
about your kids about safety. >> you're the best. >> dr. besser. t.j., you too. >> coming up, the booted couple is here live, terra and sasha. ? beautiful just the way you are ? you know how it is,

8:25 am
>> terra has been a dream come true to work with and the second that i met terra i was like how is this going to work? terra is the first little person on the show and within the first hour of rehearsal she inspired me so much and definitely wouldn't be here if it wasn't for terra and she's been the best partner i've ever had and she's just amazing and i feel like this journey end the and i have a friend for life. >> and what did you learn about dancing, about teaching, because of this journey? >> terra has definit me to push myself and it was challenging but she has proven to me there is no challenge that we can't do. >> well, talking about pushing yourself you really pushed yourself. you came out three weeks after having grayson your son, started rehearsing and your husband said last night you are the best mom and the best wife. you are wonderful. >> yeah. it was quite hard that those first few weeks actually just having my c-section and then
8:26 am
as the weeks progressed it got easier, i may have accumulated some hernias because of it. but i mean you just keep pushing because this competition is such a unique opportunity and a life-changing experience that you never want to give up on. >> well, you never gave up and congratulations. we loved watching you. do you want to get to ginger real quick. ging, you were there. you've seen it all. who did you believe is going to take it all the way? >> oh, i think i go with james for a second and then i'm going laurie first. i really think laurie and val will pull it out. so much feeling that came into that young woman last night that so many people saw but james got that place erupting, so -- >> you can see it monday night.
