7:03 am
this new pfizer covid pill is a potential game changer. to be clear, this is not a substitute for the vaccine. this would come after someone tests positive for covid. a series of pills prescribed by a doctor to help keep people out of the hospital and save lives. following pfizer's worldwide rollout of its covid vaccine, this morning another potential breakthrough in the fight against the pandemic. pfizer saying early trial results of its antiviral covid pill show it reduced the risk of hospitalization or death by 89%. more than 1,200 people included in the study were considered high risk and started taking the pills within three days of developing covid symptoms. the drug now on track for potential authorization in early 2022, not far behind another covid pill developed by merck. this as new battle lines are drawn over vaccine mandates. after weeks of protesting against local requirements, the biden administration's new federal deadline is now sparking
7:04 am
potential legal action from 26 states where republican leaders are vowing to fight. >> it is unbelievable that the federal government would issue such an unlawful order. >> reporter: the vaccine requirement covering two-thirds of the american workforce, healthcare workers and businesses with 100 or more employees and enforcement begins january 4th. in michigan, this man who owns 18 restaurants fears the mandate could worsen the worker shortage. >> i might lose 20% of my workforce. we'd have to further reduce hours. some of my locations might close. >> reporter: at a hearing on capitol hill on thursday, dr. fauci defending the mandates. >> we know vaccines save lives and we know that mandates work. >> reporter: back to the covid pill pfizer plans to start sharing data with the fda as soon as possible. again, setting up potential authorization by early 2022.
7:05 am
but regulators will begin reviewing that other covid pill by merck on november 30th meaning it could get the green light later this year. george. >> a lot of treatments in the pipeline. okay, whit, thanks very much. we turn to the deadly attack near a resort in cancun, mexico. two were shot dead in a confrontation between rival gangs sending tourists running from the beach to escape. marcus moore is live in cancun with the latest. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: good morning. this happened in the middle of the afternoon as vacationers, were enjoying the beach. many of them americans, were enjoying the beach. investigators say as many as 15 armed men arrived on boats just before that shootout erupted. this morning, cell phone video capturing panic and chaos at this beach resort. employees and guests rushing to cover as shots rang out on the beach nearby. four american tourists were injured in the confrontation. one of those americans is in critical condition this morning hit by a stray bullet.

>> i heard a bunch of popping noises and someone yells out shooter. >> reporter: hyatt ziva riviera cancun resort guests and staff hiding. some hiding in rooms and barricading the doors. military personnel seen walking around the property. james and his friend hid under pool chairs as the shots broke out. he recalls seeing a man with a gun walk past him. >> i just thought i don't want to die underneath a patio chair. >> this was the pool i was in when we heard the gunshots. >> reporter: jim was in the pool next to his room on the first floor when he heard the shots. >> all of a sudden we started seeing people running from the main pool and we didn't bother to find out why they were running. we just ran into our rooms, which were only 30 feet away, and just kind of hung out and could see from our windows people were still running for quite some time. >> reporter: the attorney general's office say two rival gangs were engaged in a shootout. two of them killed and armed suspects escaped in a stolen motorboat. in a statement to abc news, a state department spokesperson
7:07 am
says, all hotel guests determined safe. they have to update their social media and speak to families immediately. >> we were all safe at this time. >> it's very sad this has to happen anywhere in the world and especially if you're on vacation. >> reporter: this morning, investigators are trying to figure out if a third person who was injured and taken to the hospital was a tourist. they don't know because they haven't been able to interview that person but this is the latest incident in which gang violence has caught tourists in the middle here in this country, cecilia. >> just so disturbing. okay, marcus, thank you. we're going to turn to washington now and high-stakes vote expected to take place this morning on president biden's massive social spending plan and that infrastructure bill. our congressional correspondent rachel scott is right there on capitol hill following this every step of the way. rachel, good morning. party leaders met late into the night. so big question, do they have the votes? >> reporter: cecilia, good morning. this is a sign that democratic leaders believe they have the votes to get this passed. the party appears to be on the verge of a breakthrough. after weeks of negotiations, missed deadlines and two trips
7:08 am
by the president to capitol hill, the house is expected to vote on the president's economic agenda. that includes a vote on the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package. it would provide $110 billion for roads and bridges, $39 billion for public transit and $65 billion to expand broadband internet. i'm told the president was working the phones to get this deal across the finish line. if it does get across today, it would head to his desk for his signature. there are still challenges for the rest of the economic agenda. the house is expected to vote on that much larger social spending bill funding for universal pre-k and for child care, but it could take weeks before it passes the senate. moderates over in the senate are concerned about the overall size and scope of the bill as well as democratic priorities like paid family leave. it's already been taken out of the bill once. house democrats forced it back in, but some things could end up
7:09 am
on the chopping block. >> we will see if that stays in there. thank you. michael? thank you. now to the ahmaud arbery murder case. the trial of three white men charged in his killing is set to get under way but opening statements this morning amid questions of the nearly all white jury. steve osunsami is at the courthouse in brunswick, georgia. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, michael. there's so much at the heart of this trial that is happening here today, whether a black man in america is required to stop when white men tell him tor, or whether an old citizen's arrest law justifies the killing. today both sides will offer their take on the cell phone video of what happened. [ crowd chanting ] >> reporter: it is their day in court. the three white men accused of murdering ahmaud arbery in south georgia will now fight for their freedom in this glynn county courthouse. across the country alarms started ringing after the jurors were seated. only one of them is african-american in a county where a nearly third of the
7:10 am
people here are black. the judge went on the record accusing defense lawyers of bigotry. >> this court has found that there appears to be intentional discrimination but that doesn't mean that the court has the authority to receipt. >> reporter: lawyers for the three accused tried to get the judge to let them share a toxicology report on the victim that showed traces of thc in his system, the active drug in marijuana but the judge refused. outside the courthouse, demonstrators told us they expect that lawyers will try to demonize the victim. ahmaud arbery was killed last february after he was stopped by gregory mcmichael, his son travis mcmichael and their neighbor william "roddie" bryan. the young man's family says he was out jogging, but attorneys for the mcmichaels say arbery is the same person seen walking around in these surveillance videos from a home under construction down the street from travis mcmichael's home, and that they were making a
7:11 am
citizen's arrest under then-georgia law. >> while i do feel like we're getting closer to justice for ahmaud day by day and justice for ahmaud looks like having all three individuals charged and sentenced to life in prison. >> reporter: because of covid concerns, this will be quite a different courtroom experience. this courtroom is really small, and they are going to keep the jury separated in different locations, socially distanced. there will be very few family members allowed in the courtroom, and only a couple of members of the press allowed a seat. michael? >> all right, thank you so much, steve. let's bring in our chief legal analyst dan abrams and, dan, the trial is already raised major issues. we heard what the judge said when it comes to makeup of the jury. ahmaud arbery's family says it's just another injustice. what do you make of that? >> look, you can understand why they're upset. anyone who says that this is not a case about race, i think, is living in a fantasy world. as a legal matter, when you're talking about the jury here,
7:12 am
issue number one, the defense is allowed to strike prospective jurors for almost any reason they want except race. so what happened is, they went forward and explained various reasons why they dismissed all these people, which were not racially based. the judge basically saying, i don't really believe that, but maybe it doesn't cross that legal line. number two is, that the jury pd to reflect the exact percentage of jurors who are of that particular race in a community and the third thing is, and i think this is something not being discussed enough, there were a good number of black prospective jurors who were honest in the jury selection process and said, you know what, i've seen that video. i can't be fair. i can't honestly tell you that i can be objective here and that immediately eliminated a number of prospective jurors as well. >> you raise a really good point, because so many people have seen that video. it was so disturbing, so what's
7:13 am
the defense strategy going to be given that video was out there? >> it's the two prongs, number one, this old law where they're going to say if they had reasonable suspicion to believe that a crime had occurred, reasonable suspicion, doesn't mean they have to have been right, that's within their immediate knowledge, they're allowed to go and detain said person. that law is no longer on the books as a result of this case. that's number one. number two, i expect them to argue a self-defense is to say that when they went forward to try and do this, that he was the attacker and that they were defending themselves. >> how about the prosecution? >> well, they have a much easier position here. that position is going to be look at the video. they'll largely rely on the video which is kind of amazing. remember, this video came out in the first place because one of the attorneys for now one of the defendants put it out saying we think it helps the defense. so i think the prosecution is going to focus on the video and say, look, let your eyes speak for themselves. >> all right, dan abrams, thank you as always. abc newslive will have extensive
7:14 am
daily coverage of the trial beginning this morning at 9:00 a.m. george. now to honoring colin powell. the american statesman and military leader who died last month at the age of 84. his funeral service in washington, our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz is on the scene at the national cathedral. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. colin powell had such a distinguished and trailblazing career. he was the first black secretary of state, the first black chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and today here honoring him will be president biden, former president obama and former president bush, all will be here as well as hillary clinton. colin pow will be eulogized by the former secretary of state, and the current chairman and defense secretary will be here.
7:15 am
eulogies will be delivered by madeleine albright and colin powell's deputy, richard armitage as well as two of his children, michael and linda, linda is an actress. michael is the former chairman of the fcc. of course, colin powell died of complications from covid, but he was also suffering from a rare blood cancer and parkinson's disease. he was vaccinated. his career was tarnished by his support of the iraq war using faulty evidence to back it up. he said that was a mistake. but i think what everyone remembers colin powell for are his rules to live by. he had 13 of them. here are a few of them. check small things, share credit, remain calm, have a vision and be kind and, george, he lived by all of those. >> he sure did, martha raddatz, thanks very much. the ceremony honoring colin powell will be broadcast live on abc starting at noon eastern. cecilia? we'll turn to that supply chain crisis driving up the cost of so many goods. this morning, another popular store ikea is warning of higher prices to come. our chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis joins us from an ikea in new york. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, cecilia, or should i say, hey. if you're in the market for a
7:16 am
new easy-to-assemble dining room table or a futon for the dorm room, you want to listen up, the prices inside of ikea are getting more expensive. ikea says that just keeping stores like this one and warehouses stocked is getting harder to do. it's becoming an even bigger challenge and the popular furnituremaker telling abc news, we have and we will put a lot of effort into keeping prices as stable as we possibly can, but like so many other retailers right now, they are under that pressure from the supply chain, and we're starting to see it ripple into new areas. in fact, overnight the maker of oreos, toblerone chocolates and sour patch kids say they plan to hike prices in january by 6% to 7%. that snack attack, cecilia, is going to cost you more next year. >> these are my three food groups. you're making me nervous, rebecca. all of this, of course, as seriously as we are heading into the holiday season, i know you're talking to experts, is there any relief in sight?
7:17 am
>> reporter: well, the way ikea sees this and the way most of the experts see it is this will last well into next year. you look at the supply chain crisis from the ports which still have these gigantic backlogs, the warehouses now surrounding many of the u.s. ports are so full that they're struggling to take even more merchandise in and then you have additional ports in places like texas, just yesterday saying come here, bring your ships here, we can take them. the issue is, it's not just that simple to reroute the whole supply chain. cecilia, think about getting used furniture, shop used. you don't have to build it and it's more readily available. >> good advice and you had me at oreos, so thank you, rebecca. michael. we're going to turn now to parade day in atlanta as the city celebrates the champion braves who won their first world series since 1995, defeating the houston astros in six games. the festivities will include a ceremony and a concert performance by atlanta native ludacris.
7:18 am
i love that. one of my favorites. a lot more coming up here on "gma," including the nba owner under investigation over allegations of racism and misogyny after current and former employees described a toxic workplace. and the latest on this air scare. the heart-stopping moment a plane with skydivers stalled and the skydivers jumped and the plane was spinning out of control right next to them. we're learning more from the people on that plane this morning, but first let's head over to ginger. hey, ginger. chilly this morning. dropped into the upper 20s, but we are not alone. redfield, new york where they got those 9 plus inches of snow, and looking like a winter wonderland, and freeze watches up to south carolina, up into southern new jersey. we'll show you that in a bit, but first let's get the weekend forecast sponsored by macy's.

we will look out for that but now we turn to the owner of the phoenix suns who is under fire for allegations of racism and misogyny after an espn report says that more than 70 current and former employees describe a toxic and sometimes hostile workplace. the accusations rocking the nba and the league is now launching a formal investigation. will reeve has the latest. >> reporter: last season the suns were a feel-good story and made a cinderella run to the finals after years of struggle. so publicly things were great. but as one employee told espn in that damning new report, if nba commissioner adam silver took a look at what was going on in phoenix, he would be appalled. now silver and the nba are opening an investigation into robert sarver. the nba launching an investigation into phoenix suns owner robert sarver, after an explosive espn story described several incidents of his alleged racist, sexist and misogynistic behavior.
7:33 am
in a statement, the league calling the allegations extremely serious. retaining outside counsel to examine sarver's alleged racist comments over a number of years including an alleged frequent use of an anti-black racial slur referring to players. graphic descriptions made in the workplace of sexual encounters with his wife and fostering of a toxic workplace culture in his 17 years as owner. >> i read every word of that story and i got sick to my stomach. >> reporter: overnight, sarver releasing a statement strenuously denying the allegations saying, the "n" word is not part of the vocabulary. i have never referred to anyone or any group of people by that word. >> if it is true, then get him out of here. >> reporter: sarver, who made his fortune in real estate and in 2009 paid $2.7 million federal fine to settle a fair housing act alleging racial discrimination in housing units he owned, attempted to preempt the espn report last month by
7:34 am
releasing a statement denying what at the time were unprinted allegations saying, eyewitness accounts directly contradict the reporter's accusations and we are preparing our response to his questions. in the published espn story, sarver again denied the allegations through his legal team. in the espn report, suns president and ceo jason riley and general manager james jones who is black supported sarver saying the story did not represent the sarver they know. suns head coach monty williams addressed the controversy before the team's game against the houston rockets on thursday night. >> these allegations are, you know, sensitive is an understatement. as someone who is a caretaker of the program i find all of these things that are being said serious but all of it happened before i was here. if any of that stuff happened while i was here i wouldn't be in this seat. >> reporter: in response to the espn story, sarver and the suns say they vehemently reject the claims and they welcome any investigation by the league to review and respond to these false accusations.
7:35 am
now, there's no time frame on the league investigation and no certain outcome, but in a comparable situation in adam silver's first year as nba commissioner he banned l.a. clippers then-owner donald sterling for life after he was recorded making a variety of racially disparaging comments and sterling was forced to sell the team. george. >> okay, will reeve, thanks very much. now to the dramatic video of formation skydivers set to jump when their plane stalled, spun out of control with more skydivers inside the plane. gio benitez has the details on how they made a safe landing, good morning, gio. >> reporter: you know i love a good survival story and the video from this one is just heart stopping. skydivers are supposed to see the plane flying above them after they fall. well, this time they saw it below them and it was going down. a routine skydive turned into a harrow it all began 16,000 feet up in the air when these skydivers
7:36 am
opened their jump door preparing to make the ultimate leap. but suddenly the plane starts to stall just as the first group lets go of the aircraft. it begins descending quickly towards the ground. one other jumper scrambles to get out leaving four jumpers still inside with a pilot. missing the first group of wly - jumpers. one of those jumpers was bernard von rensburg, who took the death-defying video and later wrote, the moment was surreal and i could not believe what i was seeing. everything happened in slow motion and i remember thinking, am i really seeing the plane spinning nose down next to us? the video shows him scrambling to get his bearings in the air looking for his team finding them practicing their preplanned formations. miraculously the plane made a safe landing and no one was hurt. just an incredible pilot right there. able to get this plane flying again as it fell and, guys, i don't know about you but everyone is always telling me i
7:37 am
need to skydive, the transportation correspondent, of course, he's got to jump. let me tell you something, did you see that video right there? are we good now? we're good? >> you haven't done a skydive? >> reporter: i have not. i have not and, george, after this it's not going to happen. >> you did this to yourself. >> gio, you could look at it another way, if you did sky dive that's one way to get you out of the plane. >> reporter: well, if it's falling i want to sky dive. i'm out. >> exactly. that's how to get you out. it looked like a tom cruise movie. it looked like "mission: impossible." >> we are going to see gio tomorrow on "gma" weekend with juju chang and whit johnson. >> great segue there. coming up, the countdown to thanksgiving. it is on. the ceo of butterball is joining us and trevor ault, he's right there at a turkey farm. look. >> reporter: good morning. we have found the turkeys here at double brook farm in new

in filipino: you'll always be in my heart. all right, we are back and we are talking turkey, the countdown to thanksgiving is officially under way and companies are warning some turkeys and all those trimmings could be harder to find this year. trevor ault is right there at a turkey farm in new jersey with more on this. hey, trevor.
7:42 am
>> reporter: good morning, cecilia. from everybody. look, if your thanksgiving dinner is going to look like this turkey farm here, double brook farms in new jersey, crowded, a lot of people shouting over each other, you can find a big thanksgiving turkey this year probably no problem. but most americans again are opting for a smaller thanksgiving dinner and a smaller bird may be harder to find. it's arguably the most anticipated meal of the year, thanksgiving dinner, but this year, like charlie brown's thanksgiving, you may have to trim your list of trimmings. >> what kind of a thanksgiving dinner is this? where's the turkey, chuck? >> reporter: top turkey seller butterball says it doesn't expect an overall gobbler shortage but, if you're hunting to are a smaller bird, they could be tough to find and it's not just the main dish at risk of running afoul. for your cranberry sides ocean spray tells abc, it's committed to meeting customer demand but experienced a variety of supply chain challenges like aluminum can shortages, transportation and other factors.
7:43 am
that's a trend playing out in every supermarket aisle. >> every time i go food shopping my food bill every week is up like $30 to $40. from what it used to be. >> reporter: according to "the wall street journal," some supermarkets starting placing orders in february to meet november demand, but even so, market research company iri says some staples might be hard to come by and even if you can find them, with food prices increasing nearly 4% this year, it could cost you more than ever to keep your family stuffed. >> the bakery pies, liquid gravy, these are products that are a little less than ideal in terms of in stock positions. many of the thanksgiving items are also running around 5% to 10% higher than what they were last year. >> reporter: so, what's the best way to avoid winging it this thanksgiving? the store's advice is simple. >> get there early. it's going to be some shortages. >> reporter: now, the food
7:44 am
industry association says 53% of shoppers are concerned about these rising prices. it might be a good idea to look for local farms like double brook here in new jersey that have their own markets and don't have to worry about the supply chain although marvin here says he's lobbying the biden administration for a pardon so he might be unavailable for your thanksgiving, cecilia. >> trevor, thank you and thank you for taking one for the team. we're going to turn with a big interview with more on what to expect this thanksgiving is butterball's ceo and president jay jandrain. jay, good morning. thank you so much for being with us. you have said that you don't expect an overall shortage of turkeys but that smaller turkeys might be harder to find. why is that and what size are we talking about? >> that's right. we recommend that if you're looking for a smaller bird that you get out early. we are already seeing some pretty big sales at the retail level and particularly with regard to the smaller turkeys but really it's brought about because of the challenges that we've all experienced with covid and the labor shortages that we've had that many industries
7:45 am
have experienced and as a result the turkeys weren't able to be processed as quickly as we'd like so they grew a little bit larger, so we've got a little bit larger turkeys in the stores now. >> help me figure out for folks about to head out to the store and buy those turkeys, what size defines a smaller turkey that will be harder to find right now? >> typically a 10 to 12 pound up to 14 pounds will be more difficult. over 16 pounds, 18 pounds, they'll be certainly more readily available. >> so, is it suppliers predicted people would host bigger gatherings this year and felt like we were headed back to normal and delta happened. is that what you mean? >> no, it was due to covid just because we didn't have as many people in the facilities to process the turkeys so as a result the turkeys were at the farms longer than they normally would have been and grew larger so that's really the reason we're seeing larger birds this year. we're expecting the size of the celebrations to be about the same as they were last year, a lot of smaller gatherings to begin with. some folks are still a little hesitant to get out and get into
7:46 am
big groups, so that's primarily the reason we're seeing more larger birds out this year than in the past. >> it's been said we could look at the most expensive thanksgiving ever. all the prices are going up. does that include the cost of turkeys this year? >> not a whole lot, and we're expecting probably there will be some increases though we don't set the retail at stores. our customers do that, but you got to remember the turkey is the most economical part of the meal quite frankly. on average it's around a dollar a pound. it's hard to find a protein store so it's still an at your- incredible value and the good news, if you have a larger turkey, you have more leftovers. who doesn't love leftovers the next day. >> we all do love the leftovers. thank you so much for your time this morning. michael. coming up, we have our "play of the day" for this friday morning. we'll be right back. this morning. michael. coming up, we have our "play of the day" for this friday morning. we'll be right back.

8:20 am
thing we have to do is we have to reduce that by recycling more and recycling better. this isn't about just keeping stuff out of the landfill but it's about reducing greenhouse gases produced when we make fresh plastic, metal and glass, but here's the thing, to keep these facilities humming, we have to recycle right. ♪ sometimes recycling can feel like a guessing game. what about this plastic bag? it seems like it could be recycled. it's called wish-cycling. when you have the best intentions to recycle but you get it wrong. >> we get garden hoses, christmas lights, propane tanks, plastic bags, all items that don't belong in a curbside bin. >> reporter: brent is the vice president of recycling for waste management, and he says about 20% of the material they collect curbside is not recyclable. some of their biggest culprits, athletic equipment like weirdly bowling balls. other things you can't recycle, aerosol cans, dishes, paper towels, hard cover books and
8:21 am
mirrors so how can you figure out if something is recyclable. all recycleables have a number code on the bottom in that triangle. the lower the number, 1 or 2, the more recyclable it is and if you're not sure if you can recycle something give it the poke test. if you can push your finger through it, you can't recycle it, we're talking about milk jugs or detergent bottles, these all have high recycling value but a big caveat, you have to wash out the plastics, food waste and oils can ruin an entire cycling load. now, moving on to reducing and reusing, i want to talk about clothing. many of us here at "gma," lara and ginger, are huge fans of consignment and secondhand stuff. more than half of what i wear is secondhand. that's mostly because i'm frugal, cecilia, but it's great
8:22 am

8:31 am
>> i know this movie is based on a 1929 novel but you also have a personal connection to it. >> i do, yes. my -- my grandfather on my mother's side from detroit, michigan, and he was african-american and he passed white for pretty much all of his life actually. >> wow. >> i mean he wasn't born -- he was born into a black family. he was raised as black but at a certain point he chose to live his life -- >> is that what drew you to this novel? >> it was handed to me by a friend at a moment when i was making more inquiries into it. i mean, the truth is, if you come from a family that has a history of passing that history is obscured and necessarily disappeared in a way. so, you know, if you're in that
8:32 am
family you hear snippets of information and it wasn't even clear to my mother and reading this book was kind of an eye opener for me because i remember looking at the title and thinking, passing, what does and it wasof like jigsaw read it puzzle piece of, of course, this is what my grandfather does and why my mother doesn't know her grandfather's name, for example, and didn't know many of her relatives so the book sparks off a journey of discovery for me and also a way of thinking and talking about my own racial identity and also honestly identity at large because the book does expand beyond that in many ways. >> i imagine this must have been somewhat of a journey for your mom too as well then. >> yes. >> has she seen the movie? >> yes. she has seen the movie, yes. she was incredible moved by it and incredibly proud and just said to me, very moving. she just said to me i think you have -- this is something akin to a liberation for me, the thing that felt that there were no words to talk about this. you have liberated my father by
8:33 am
talking about it. >> wow. let's take a look at a clip. >> lots of people pass all the time. >> it's easy for a negro to pass for white. i'm not sure it would be so simple for a white person to pass for colored. >> never thought of that. >> no, why should you? >> sometimes i think you could. >> yes. >> and in a way if you can why wouldn't you? >> you read this book 13 years ago. you adapted the script right away. then you put it in a drawer. what made you keep coming back to it? >> yeah, i wrote the first draft of the screenplay in ten days actually. it was a bit of a whirlwind. i couldn't stop. i couldn't get the images out of my head and couldn't stop thinking about the movie in black and white and this specific aspect but all these things, i think for my
8:34 am
25-year-old self, the idea has felt a little big. it was a little overwhelming. it was almost too much. the film felt too complete which is ironic. if you're going to make a movie it should feel complete in your head but i think it took me some growing up to get to the place of confidence where i could get it out of the drawer and start showing it to people but then as i was showing it to people it was seven years of trying to get the money for it so it's been a long road. whatever way you cut whether me or everyone else. >> yeah, seven years to get the money for it. ten years total in the making. i was reading -- we've got you in front of the camera, we've now got you behind the camera for the first time. what's next? >> i hope more of this. i've never -- i don't know. i've always been interested in many, many different things, i paint, i play music. my mother is obviously a musician. i've never felt like all of my interests are more harnessed into one area than when i was directing this. >> what is the biggest thing you had to learn in directing? >> i mean, i don't know how to
8:35 am
answer that question in a straightforward way because before i made this movie i wasn't a director or even a screenwriter and now i am both so what haven't i learned? >> it all seems very overwhelming when you think about it. >> i don't know. i think there's too many places to start but i think i've always wanted to be a filmmaker. i've always thought about the frame and how editing and how everything is cut together so that was an enjoyable learning process for me. >> we can all see it now. thank you for coming in.

we are back wi we are back with one of our favorite guests who always brings us something delicious. she is an incredible chef and the host of food network's "holiday baking championship" and now this lady has written a children's book called "carla and the christmas cornbread." we're so glad to have you here. >> i am so excited. i can't believe i have a children's book. >> it's amazing and i love the story. we're going to talk about it. but you're going to walk us through some actual cornbread. you came not only to talk about the book but you have three must do top baking tips and i always get this one wrong. i never prep ahead of time to leave the ingredients out so walk me through. what has to be room temp and what should be cold?
8:39 am
>> when you do cookies and biscuits and pie crust that butter has to be cold. when you're doing cakes where the butter has to be creamed that needs to be room temperature and room temperature means your butter is bending and soft. >> pop it in the microwave, it's not total liquid. >> don't do that. but if it's last minute and you want to still do your butter, grate your butter because this will actually help your butter come to room temperature so much faster. >> this is blowing my mind? this is a life-changing hack. look at this. this is why you're here. this is amazing. >> this is why i'm here. >> do you have to sift the flour? >> you need to sift your flour before you measure it. a lot of times -- it's a must do because if you don't sift your flour it settles. you will have one or two tablespoons more of flour than you need. the balance -- the ratio of dry to wet will be off and your cookies don't work and you blame me for the recipe and it's you. [ laughter ] i'm just saying it's you. so if your eggs are also cold put them in warm water to make them room temperature. >> for how long roughly. >> until they actually feel --
8:40 am
>> to touch. prepping the pans, a tip on this. >> prepping the pans, just butter on the bottom parchment paper, just cut that circle out and then butter and flour so it will pop out but adds a little flavor and color. >> the parchment paper to get it out of the pan. >> to get it out of the pan, yeah. you don't -- how many times you made a cake -- have you made a cake? >> it ends up stuck on the bottom, then i try to cover it and cover it with the frosting and it's just a big old disaster. we'll make as we go and talk about the book, "carla and the christmas cornbread." i love it. i love it. i love it all. does it hit close to home? is this a family recipe we're talking about? >> it hits close to home because i loved my grandmother's cornbread. she would never make it until we were on the inside of the door, even if we told her we're coming in 20 minutes, great, llt rnea caa, tre, and it's at christmastime and they end up
8:41 am
making cornbread for santa. >> this is the cornbread you grew up eating and is this the cornbread we're making now. >> yes. >> you want to show me. >> you'll do all of the wet ingredients. you have eggs, oil, and cream corn and buttermilk. >> so you use oil not butter? >> yes, especially oil is going to make your cakes and cornbread moist. >> really? >> yes. when you think about the room temperature version of your fat like look at this. if this goes room temperature, what happens? it's cold. that's going to be like not so moist. >> and this is buttermilk? >> that's buttermilk, yes. >> that's another pro tip. >> if you can't find buttermilk, sour cream and full fat milk. >> ooh. >> you're welcome, people. >> look at all these tips here. >> just falling out of me. >> i can't even so this is -- we've got this. >> i'll add -- you come to me actually. you come to me, all in. >>eally d about
8:42 am
cornbread foodiday season >> there's no flour. >> no flour. >> so what does that mean? >> why is that? >> you don't need it. it has all this fat. it's gluten-free. it is naturally gluten-free. i didn't make it for the gluten-free people but -- >> it happens to be gluten-free. >> yes. >> wow. >> you heat your pans up. >> so you say -- you know, i'm used to seeing cornbread often in kind of a pyrex or cake dish like that you say you can do them smaller too. >> yes, you can do them in a big skillet or a smaller skillet, or do them in muffin tins. >> what is this amazingness right here? >> this is cinnamon butter. just need butter, cinnamon, powdered sugar. here, there you go and then a little bit of almond extract or vanilla extract. >> come on, come on. cinnamon butter. come on. congratulations. thank you for this. you guys need to make this. it's wonderful. you can get this recipe on carla's new book, "carla and the christmas cornbread" in honor to

8:47 am
and switched to fewer medicines with dovato. dovato is for some adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment or replacing their current hiv-1 regimen. with just 2 medicines in 1 pill, dovato is as effective as a 3-drug regimen... to help you reach and stay undetectable. research shows people who take hiv treatment as prescribed and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. taking dovato with dofetilide can cause serious or life-threatening side effects. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while on dovato. don't stop dovato without talking to your doctor, as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening. serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. dovato may harm your unborn baby.
8:48 am
use effective birth control while on dovato. do not breastfeed while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato-i did. ♪ ♪ ♪ welcome back. grammy winner singer/songwriter darius rucker is ending our week on a high note, of course, as he gears up for his tour next year. before we get to the music we're going to chat with the man himself, darius rucker. good morning, my friend. how are you doing? >> hey, michael, how you doing,

8:56 am
he earned the respect of presidents and leaders from both parties. you'll seen many of them. president biden and first lady dr. jill biden, talking with former president barack obama. they have described him in recent days with extraordinary language and words, the president calling him a dear friend. former president george w. bush remembering him as a great public servant. he's there as well. with former first lady laura bush. colin powell was one of the most highly rarted diplomats you can see former secretary of state hillary clinton has arrived there, she and bill clinton the former president in recent days saying colin powell was a courageous soldier, a skilled commander, a dedicated diplomat and a good and decent man. much has been said about colin
8:57 am
powell. he acknowledged what he called a blot on his record, that's what he told barbara walters years ago about that moment before the world, but it was trademark general powell, acknowledging that there would be something that he would carry with him the rest of his life. a life dedicated to this country, over four decades of public service. he died last month at the age of 84, suffering complications from covid while also battling a form of blood cancer and early parkinson's, he was fully vaccinated. then fell ill. treated at walter reed. his wife battling covid, she recovered at home and she's at the service today. joining me is martha raddatz, no question that general powell broke barriers, he broke barriers as the first black
8:58 am
national security adviser, first black chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. first black secretary of state. but he led as example. he didn't talk about those barriers he broke. >> reporter: he did not david and what an extraordinary career, he joined the army in 1958, just ten years after it had been desegregated, he was a soldier in vietnam and rose through the ranks rapidly to be a four-star general, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and then wouldn't into the diplomatic world, i traveled with him numerous times while he was secretary of state and it was right after 9/11 when he truly did bring the world together, brought the world together to go after osama bin laden, but colin powell was always grateful, i love hearing that voice at the beginning, about how grateful he was, about how blessed he was, he always wanted to be called general, even after he was second of
8:59 am
state. and he wanted to be called general because he was a soldier at heart and really truly good soldier at heart. i think that's really who colin powell was, he was a good man, a grateful man and a man as you said, david, who would admitted mistakes and how extraordinary that was, he knew standing before the u.n. and realizing later there was faulty intelligence that he made a mistake and he sat down and he told people that and he accepted that mistake and carried on to do very good things in his life. >> an appreciation, from the american people, for that acknowledgment. he talked about his years of service. colin powell spoke about what it was like as a young man to first put on that uniform. he said it felt right. >> he did, he said it felt right. just, he fit in there and you know the army was way ahead of the nation in terms of
9:00 am
segregation. so colin powell said he felt comfortable there. but that's where he comfortable and that's what he did not want to run for president. he made that very clear, and using those words, he felt right in that uniform. he said he never felt right when they thought about running for president, as much as he was admired in this country. >> as we watch the service begin. this was uniquely an american life. born to jamaican parents, he grew up in south bronx. he went to school, found rotc, and ablazed his own path. >> david, colin powell's story is as authentic and inspiring as any story in history. his parents were factory workers, parents who believed there was nothing, no
