"candyman's" young director breaking records. >> a crowd started to form. >> is the film giving hollywood hope as audiences await "shang-chi." and after much delay 007 will finally fly into theaters. good morning, america. it's good to be with you on this busy wednesday as the nation battles two severe weather emergencies on both coasts. we will bring you the latest on ida and the wildfires out west. but first, we do want to begin with our top story this morning as we are learning more about the final u.s. troops leaving afghanistan. new images are coming in showing the taliban celebrating as they seize more control. >> the president forcefully defended his decision to end america's longest war and withdraw troops.
7:03 am
he took on critics, vowed again to get the americans left behind. chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz starts us off, good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. yes, president biden remains defiant, no apologies for the chaotic and deadly evacuation as afghans wake up today with the taliban in charge and those americans and afghan allies who still want to get out wondering how that will happen. this morning, it is the taliban that control the kabul airport and virtually all of afghanistan. but in washington, president biden doubling down on his decision to leave. >> i refuse to send another generation of america's sons and daughters to fight a war that should have ended long ago. >> reporter: just one day after u.s. military forces departed, the taliban releasing this video they say shows their fighters flying over the city of mazar-i-sharif in an afghan military helicopter.
7:04 am
taliban fighters entering a hangar at kabul airport previously controlled by u.s. forces. and holding a mock funeral, caskets draped with american and nato flags symbolizing their defeat. despite these images of the taliban in power, president biden calling the evacuation an extraordinary success and standing firm in his decision to pull all u.s. troops out. >> i was not going to extend this forever war and i was not extending a forever exit. >> reporter: biden did not apologize for the violent and chaotic evacuation. >> some say we should have started mass evacuations sooner and couldn't this have been done in a more orderly manner? i respectfully disagree. >> reporter: the president acknowledging there are up to 200 u.s. citizens still in afghanistan who want to leave and reaffirming his commitment to help them evacuate. >> for those remaining americans there is no deadline.
7:05 am
we remain committed to get them out if they want to come out. >> reporter: but without u.s. military forces in the country and no diplomatic presence escaping is more challenging than ever. michael, a teacher in afghanistan and green card holder from delaware, is now stuck there. he tried going to the airport before u.s. forces left but could not get through. >> i feel like, you know, all my life i've lived in the united states, the u.s. has turned their back on me and ignored me. >> reporter: and as first reported by "the wall street journal," an interpreter who said that in 2008 he helped then-senator biden during an afghan snowstorm is now the one who's trapped. he says his visa application got stuck and when he tried to escape at the airport, officials would only let him, not his wife or children through. he fears for his life and has this message for president biden.
7:06 am
>> please do not forget me and my family. please find a way and get me out. >> reporter: the administration says they have enormous economic leverage over the taliban to help get those who want to leave out. but that remains a dangerous and chaotic undertaking with no clear path on exactly how to do it, george. >> and there is enormous humanitarian need in that country as well. martha raddatz, thanks very much. michael. we're going to turn now to the wildfire emergency out west, the massive caldor fire closing in on lake tahoe. mandatory evacuation orders spreading to nevada. kayna whitworth is on the ground in south lake tahoe with the latest. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: michael, good morning. so right now, we have more than 30,000 structures that are being threatened by this fire and one official i spoke with said i never thought he'd find himself in a place where south lake tahoe is threatened but here we are and today is critical.
7:07 am
overnight, firefighters battling out of control flames desperate to keep the caldor fire from taking over south lake tahoe. officials working day and night to save the community. >> i did see some damage to structures, the fire burned through there extremely fast, extremely hot. >> reporter: evacuation orders expanding into nevada as the relentless fire barrels through the dry terrain. burning nearly 200,000 acres and just 18% contained. to give you an idea of the kind of terrain these firefighters are dealing with, you see that incredibly steep hillside there and all of those trees sort of clustered together on fire at the same time. those fire damaged trees falling over is a huge concern for firefighters. the governor calling the caldor fire the state's number one priority as 100-foot flames are burning within miles of the city center. >> i would just need to make sure our firefighters stay safe, still do their jobs but at no time will you be in front of this thing because you will not stop it. >> reporter: richard geraghty
7:08 am
recovering after suffering burns over 20% of his body. these firefighters have been on this fire for nearly three weeks now and doing it in tough conditions, cecilia, i have our air quality meter out here, and it's reading at 500. extremely hazardous. the good news the warnings will expire at the end of the day but as you know, this firefight is still far from over. >> it certainly is, kanya, you and the team stay safe. we turn to ida, the storm targeting the northeast bringing severe weather. possible tornadoes and major flash flood threats more tharin 64 million people. rob marciano is tracking it all. hey, rob. >> reporter: hi, cecilia. the rain has arrived here in the northeast and flooding rain is what we're seeing already across parts of the northeast and midsouth. here's video out of maryland, rescues there. they got about nearly half a foot of rain in nearly two to three hours so that out there on their boats first responders trying to get people out of high water and out of harm's way and the rain just keeps coming down
7:09 am
so we have that component to this storm but we also have a history of tornadoes with this storm. we had three yesterday. this is one of the three yesterday, two were in the south and one in blacksburg, virginia. doing some damage. these tornadoes are typically pretty small but they do do damage and we'll have that threat with that remnant low pushing off -- look at that rain shield. my goodness. that is dense, heavy rain and we're already saturated across the northeast. it's been an extremely wet summer so the soil can't take it anymore and looking at the possibility for tornadoes. this is pretty rare too. that area has a 10% chance of seeing tornadoes in d.c., baltimore, philadelphia, especially later on this afternoon. 6 to 8 inches of rainfall in the hot zone there and that's going to cause certainly some flooding overnight tonight into tomorrow morning. michael. >> all right, rob. we know ida is leaving the gulf to pick up the pieces. louisiana waking up in the dark again, residents desperate for fuel to fill up their cars and
7:10 am
generators. matt gutman is in st. charles parish with more on the critical situation. good morning, matt. >> reporter: michael, good morning, there's destruction you do see. house after house crushed. that storm surge bringing in this sludge. a walker, someone left in haste to evacuate. then there's what you don't see, thousands of square miles without power, that means hundreds of thousands of people have no means to power their air-conditioners, their refrigerators for food, their medical devices. this morning, as new orleans wakes up in this swampy dark for the third straight day, power company entergy hope to restore some power focusing on critical infrastructure like hospitals and nursing homes. but new orleans could be an island meaning hundreds of thousands of other customers would continue living in the dark. there is no power and families have become desperate trying to fill up their vehicles but also cans for their generators.
7:11 am
now, there are so few gas stations open here that this line is over an hour long. it stretches beyond the interstate. it's even backing up traffic on the off-ramp. jeremy says he's been siphoning gas from his boat, but now everything is on empty. >> can't find it. it's gold. it's gold right now. >> how long have you been searching for an open gas station? >> two days. >> reporter: after an hour he finally filled the cans. for millions no power means no clean running water, air-conditioning, food in the fridge or lights. the governor warning those who have evacuated not to return home because this part of louisiana is unlivable. >> the schools are not open, the businesses are not open. the hospitals are slammed. there's not water in your home and there's not going to be electricity. >> reporter: late yesterday, we climbed in with the coast guard for an aerial survey, seeing that hurricane ida and its 150-mile-per-hour winds was a roof destroyer. so many of these homes have had their roofs sheared right off by the wind.
7:12 am
you can see a thunderstorm coming. town after town after town, battered and swamped. >> minor destruction from up here is probably devastating for the folks who live there. >> reporter: the hardest hit, grand isle. not only is it swamped a couple of feet of water down there but every single house is damaged. officials saying the barrier island is uninhabitable. >> 100% of the structures are damaged. 40% of the structures they estimate are either completely destroyed or maybe just a wall standing up. >> reporter: we touched down on an island that's expected to be cut off from the rest of the world for weeks. the coast guard just dropped us off in grand isle. they're actually waiting over there. there is a truck that got stuck apparently in the sand here. we haven't seen anybody else on this island. >> reporter: but across the state many still holding on. >> i know what waking up the next day and having nothing is like. >> reporter: shelly huff decided to stay even though she lost everything in katrina. her community helping her stay afloat. >> we've all been banding together and sharing food,
7:13 am
sharing drinks and an old neighbor brought us a generator. >> reporter: as we come back out to our drone shot, there are some buildings physically left standing but it's unclear if they'll be able to survive financially for 30 more days without power. there are cooling stations set up in new orleans, some power will come on in new orleans today but for hundreds of thousands of people there will be no power and that means they're going to suffer in this heat index of 100 degrees and that's dangerous for the elderly and the young. george? >> matt gutman, thanks very much. we turn to the breaking news out of texas. the state's controversial law banning most abortions has now taken effect after the supreme court took no action, at least not yet, to hold it off and rachel scott is tracking the story. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. this is one of the strictest bans on abortion in the country and it goes into effect in the state of texas, starting todckn
7:14 am
abbott signed this measure into law, it bans abortions as early as six weeks into pregnancy. that is before most women even know that they are pregnant. the supreme court had until midnight to respond to an emergency request to block this before it went into effect but they have not yet taken any action. in the state of texas, 85% to 90% of women get abortions within their first six weeks of pregnancy and so without any further action this will ban nearly all of the abortions in the state, george. >> rachel, after months of a standoff the texas legislature passed this law putting new restrictions on voting. >> reporter: yes, george, critics say this makes it harder to vote. this now heads to texas governor greg abbott's desk, he's promised to sign it and bans drive-through voting and also adds new i.d. requirements for mail-in voting. democrats had been fighting this for months, they walked out twice and fled the state of texas but republicans have the majority. they were able to push this
7:15 am
through and they insist that this protects election integrity. texas now joins 17 other states that have moved to tighten voting rules this year, george. >> rachel scott, thanks very much. now to the coronavirus emergency, an alarming rise in hospitalizations across the country and now a number of children getting sick has dctors especially concerned this morning. erielle reshef has the latest on this. good morning, erielle. >> reporter: good morning to you, cecilia. this is what has health experts so concerned. more than 101,000 people are hospitalized with covid-19 across this country right now. that puts us on pace to surpass our january peak of 125,000 people hospitalized at one time and raising concern as well, 300 children are now being admitted to the hospital with covid every single day and, of course, as hospitalizations increase, so is the death toll. 900 people are losing their lives to covid-19 every single day in this country. that's up 370% over the past seven weeks, but there is some good news on the vaccine front.
7:16 am
since the full fda authorization of the pfizer vaccine just one week ago, 470,000 people are getting their first shot every day. that's up 17% from the week prior. cecilia. >> that is good news, we love hearing that, but we are now seeing this debate over requirements heat up. especially on college campuses. >> that's right. colleges are taking more and more action against students who fail to comply with their vaccination policies. the latest, virginia tech has unenrolled 134 students who either did not provide proof of vaccination or proof that they have a religious or medical exemption, this follows the university of virginia just several days ago which took a similar move against 200 students who did not comply with their vaccination policies. cecilia. >> okay, erielk u so you guys, take a look at this big league honor for the winners of the little league world series. the detroit tigers honored the young championship team from taylor north before the major
7:17 am
league game, they got a chance to hang out at batting practice and then they enjoyed the game with their families. something nice after you go through all that stress and to be celebrated by your home team. >> pretty great. following a lot on "gma" this morning, including the nfl covid controversy. did the patriots cut cam newton over his vaccination status? and new "jeopardy!" fallout. mike richards fired from his role as the game show's executive producer after stepping aside from hosting duties but first let's head back over to rob. hey, good morning again. guys, boy, be nice if we could take this rain and just dump it on the wildfires that are burning in the west. no such luck. we're going to have treacherous wildfire-fighting conditions today. here's some video out of state line, nevada, just across the border from heavenly ski resort. you can see, just anything, just to rinse out the atmosphere here. air quality horrific and flames getting very, very close to lake tahoe. red flag warnings are posted for
7:18 am
that area. we've got gusty winds up to 45 miles an hour, low levels of humidity and also, flash flood watches across six states. this is remnants of hurricane ora which came ashore. arizona which had a tremendous amount of rain in the past month is going to get some rain and to highlight what's happening in new orleans, with all the ac and power out, heat advisory remain up and will feel like 100 degrees. time now for your rainy cities sponsored by verizon.
7:19 am
all right, guys, bring out the hat, the rain gear, the galoshes, all day rain event not just for us, everybody in the northeast. try to stay dry and safe. guys, back over to you. >> we're good. >> you get inside, rob. >> coming up, we have "dancing with the stars" judge derek hough will join us live. we'll be right back.

coming up including on how the hit movie "candyman" made history. >> thank you, cecilia. now to new questions regarding the nfl and the covid vaccine this morning. all eyes on cam newton's sudden release from the new england patriots and whether the shot played a role and will reeve joins us with more. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning, michael. cam newton won the heisman trophy in college. he was the 2015 nfl mvp and when tom brady left the patriots last year cam newton was brought in to take over and did have a rough year even missing time due to covid. he had a fresh start this year but then suddenly yesterday he was cut with some speculating his vaccination status is part of the reason why. >> newton with time, fires it over the middle and the pass is intercepted -- >> reporter: he started the first three preseason games but this morning, cam newton is no longer a new england patriot. the team releasing him after bill belichick said he was heading in the right direction.
7:33 am
newton missed three days of practice last week because of what the team called a misunderstanding related to covid-19 protocols. last season he was forced to miss a game after testing positive. in training camp, newton would not confirm if he received the covid vaccine saying only it was too personal to discuss. meanwhile, the jacksonville jaguars' urban meyer became the first nfl head coach to publicly admit his team takes vaccination status into account when selecting their final roster. >> can you share with us whether a vaccinated versus unvaccinated player had an impact on a roster decision? >> everyone was considered, that was part of the production, which is, let's start talking about this, and then also is he vaccinated or not. can i say that that was a decision maker was certainly in consideration. >> reporter: the nfl players association responding quickly saying over texts, these comments have led us to open an investigation. the nfl does not require players to be vaccinated but unvaccinated players face strict regulations including daily testing, wearing masks and social distancing.
7:34 am
they can be fined $15,000 for each break in protocol. now, if an unvaccinated player tests positive, he has to miss ten days automatically, or if he is deemed a high risk close contact with an infected person, he has to miss five days even if he tests negative. the nfl sent out a memo to all of its teams this summer saying that if a game cannot be rescheduled, and it had to be canceled in the first place due to an outbreak caused by an unvaccinated player, the team could forfeit a game. so that is the environment the teams are living in as they try to construct their rosters for this nfl season. guys? >> only 17 games, every game is very important so, if you have with two separable skills, i'm not sure they take that into account. >> thank you. we turn to that new "jeopardy!" fallout. mike richards now out as executive producer of that show as well as "wheel of fortune." this is just weeks after he was

7:36 am
fans and it's just an example of how poorly this entire process was handled. >> reporter: over the past few months, "jeopardy!" featuring a rotation of guest hosts before naming richards as permanent host and former "big bang theory" star and real-life neuroscientist mayim bialik as host of primetime series. but just nine days after landing the coveted role, richards stepped down as host when sexist and offensive comments he made on a podcast series years ago resurfaced. in a note sent to "jeopardy!" staff, richards writing, it became clear that moving forward as host would be too much of a distraction for our fans and not the right move for the show. but he plans to stay on as head producer of both "jeopardy!" and "wheel of fortune." "jeopardy!" alum arthur chu who had an 11-game winning streak in 2014 saying, recent events behind the scenes have taken away from what makes the show special on screen.
7:37 am
>> this scandal has obviously taken focus off the contestants. we really should be talking about the current "jeopardy!" champion, but it's all taking a back burner to this scandal with mike richards. >> reporter: this morning, the search for a new permanent host continues. >> now, they need to find a host that fans and the internet will agree on and that's the next step but they don't need to rush into it. >> and we've learned that this was sony's decision to let mike go. it wasn't what he wanted but the company felt it was the right decision and michael davies will be filling in temporarily until a new ep is announced. >> you said it, janai, what is a mess. thank you so much. coming up later, the magic number of hours of sleep you need to help your brain. dr. jen ashton breaks it down for us. and how "candyman" is giving hope to hollywood this fall.

[ laughter ] this works out perfectly. >> we have a big surprise for you because -- >> there's more. >> in honor of your amazing career, the giants are retiring your jersey as you knew that. no one will ever wear 92 on the giants again. s that's happening right there. metlife stadium. home of the giants we are announcing the giants are officially retiring your jersey on november 28th, big blue faces the philadelphia eagles. >> mark your calendars. >> a good week. wow. >> jon runyan is going to be there, i think. >> surprised that none of you gave it up. i saw jesse at jim's golf tournament. you didn't say a word. [ laughter ] >> michael. >> this morning. >> i gotth deyo ave s
8:33 am
in the hall of fame, you're a super bowl winner. explain why it means so much to have your jersey retired. >> i mean that is like the ultimate respect from your team. it's like you did so much in that number, what you represented, not just on the field but off the field and the community for the team that we want to honor you by making sure not that no one else ever wears that number. that's not the important thing but that number is significant and attached to you and what you have done in new york so i'm honored by it. i'm really stunned and i know a lot of people are thinking, he must have known. i had no idea so i'm a little stunned but i'm just -- i'm thankful to have guys like this who have always been there for me who have taken time out of their busy lives and schedules to be here to surprise me with this and actually i know wearing
8:34 am
that number 92 -- enjoy. kind of looks good on you. >> talked about significance and giants fans will now the significance of having your jersey rear tired during an eagles game. we should point out, you sacked eagles quarterbacks more than anyone on any other team. special moment. they're not here this morning because they might still be recovering. you like how they did that. >> that was the one team i think all of us -- probably the biggest rivalry we had and it's special. if i had my number retired and we were playing in philly -- [ laughter ] it would be a lot of beeping going on as to what's being said to me. significant with the eagles being the opponent and a lot of respect. the reason i had success against them they challenged me to be the best player i could be and eli said jon runyan may be there
8:35 am
but that guy made me a much better player which is why i beat up on him so bad. >> we don't see the trash-talking michael on set but you're already bringing it out. >> this one here is who you don't see -- >> this guy, he was the best. and, you know, i knew the name mayim before i came to the giants and now about him and i walked in that locker room. definitely heard him before i saw him. he was talking and chirping all the time. what i appreciated is he brought it to the practice field and no one practiced harder, no one worked harder. for a young guy coming in see aing a guy in his 12th year bringing it every single day saying i got to match his intensity, you saw why he had success on the field because of the way he prepared, the way he practiced. the way his mind set was to get better every single day and know that's why he's had success in everything he does because of his work ethic. [ applause ]
8:36 am
>> nicest thing you've ever said to me. >> it's on tape. jesse, michael schools me in football almost every day but he has never told me the story that i heard coming into work this morning that you used to talk to his socks before the games. is this true? >> well, you know, michael did a lot of things, you know. [ laughter ] i called him mean me, you know. >> what? >> that's his name. you know, one thing about him, a great player but on top of that the nfl implemented a new rule for timing. never had to worry about him doing that because he runs away from the play and says, look at me. [ laughter ] >> i will say jessie is the most instinctual football player i ever played with. amazing, firecracker. got me out of a rut when i was and he's the only one that could have gotten me out of that rut and one thing i will say, the
8:37 am
biggest thing i learned about jessie, there is no "i" in team but there is m-e. >> you've said that you treated michael like an old fart. but you did have an emotional talk after super bowl 42. tell bus that. >> well, you know, the whole old fart thing started because me and one of my teammates osi. one day before practice i said like, i'm just going to kick michael out of the league because eli said this guy would always -- he prepared better than any -- you would think after being a player this long he would take a break and give the younger guys opportunity on the field. stra would never let me get any reps in practice. i made up in my own mild we were going to kick strahan out of the league so literally our narrative -- he has you fooled by the way. you see him all buttoned up in these suits but this guy is the
8:38 am
most competitive trash-talking person i've ever been around in my life so you got to learn how to give it back to him so my thing was i'm going to kick him out of the league. that's the only way i'll get an opportunity to play but after the super bowl we gave him a hard time. he gave it back. after that we had a moment of just appreciation. appreciation get an opportunity to watch this craftsman, you know, teach us how to be better pro, better donald trump players and a lot -- we all can have stories about how our success after he left was predicated on what we learned from him while he was there and till this day he is still one of these people we watch and everything he's doing outside of football and we try to do that in our lives, as well. >> that's beautiful. >> they used to call me old man. not only they say we kick you out of the league, old man. we gonna kick you out of the league old man but what they didn't realize i had to be that competitive just not necessarily
8:39 am
with them but to myself. i'm watching young guys, bigger, stronger, faster and wanted to keep up and not be a disappointment to them and i knew coming in being what, 13, 14, 15 years in the league i never wanted them to look back and say, i remember when you were still good and i'm still sitting there. i wanted them to be professionals and carried the torch and wonder woman a super bowl four years after i left and have more rings than i do. these guys are phenomenal human beings. [ applause ] >> congratulations to you. what an honor to have your jersey retired. >> you got me. somebody will pay for this. >> we will watch sunday, november 28th and we'll be right back.
