8:02 am
nine olympic gold medals and some. >> good math. i didn't need a calculator. >> i had an abacus. and for the women, it was redemption for the women's 4x100 relay team granted a do-over in thursday's preliminary heat but they went on to take the gold overnight. an amazing accomplishment. >> lots of good stuff but we'll start with a decidedly less uplifting olympic story, the new apology from swimming star ryan lochte after that raucous night in rio. >> some of it was caught on video. lochte and his teammates initially sai at gunpoint at this gas station, but authorities and witnesses now say the athletes were not actually victims, but vandals. abc's matt gutman is in rio reco covering all the latest twists in this developing story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. those four swimmers are now out of rio and for the first week of this, they all stuck together in silence, but now one of them is speaking out for the first time. the youngest one, gunnar bentz who is pointing the finger at
8:03 am
he who pulled down that poster at that gas station and then mouthed off to those armed security guards. >> anything you'd like to say? >> reporter: this morning jimmy feigen, the last of the four olympic swimmers caught on camera allegedly vandalizing a rio gas station has left brazil. that as the swimmers who brazil accused of providing false statements to police now break their silence. overnight gunnar bentz, the youngest of the swimmers saying second most decorated male olympian ever, who vandalized the station after they had been partying. in this video you can see a man tear down a poster, then you see armed security guards detain them. at this point bentz says ryan stood up and began to yell at the guards. after jack and i both tugged at him in an attempt to get him to sit back down. eventually a good samaritan translated and the swimmers gave the guards about $50 for the damage. bentz's statement follows
8:04 am
instagram. writing "i should have been much more responsible in how i handled myself and for that i am sorry to my teammates, my fans, my fellow competitors, my sponsors and the hosts of this great event. initially lochte denied anything happened then he told nbc -- >> these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing, just a police badge, they pulled us over. >> reporter: lochte's lawyer insisting his client's apology should not be viewed as an admission of guilt. bentz, conger and feigen were briefly detained by authorities before being allowed to return home. more than the other swimmers there is big money on the line for lochte who has deals with speedo and ralph lauren worth a reported million dollars. where does this leave the other swimmers? jimmy feigen had to pay $11,000 to a charity just to get his passport back and there may be more fallout even if they don't
8:05 am
statement falling on its sword apologizing to rio and brazil for what happened and saying that it will thoroughly review the incident. dan, cecilia. >> matt, thank you for your reporting. lease pick up on that question of consequences with espn reporter julie foudy who is also in rio. julie, good morning. i wonder how damaging is this going to be for the careers and the endorsement deals of ryan lochte and these other swimmers? >> dan, when you know and you see sally jenkins with "the washington post" in her lead line in her story dumbest bell that ever rang, you know it's going to be damaging and really when you think about it on the pool it's going to be damaging to the brand but in the pool, the suspension, whatever usa swimming does, is largely going to be irrelevant. they're not going to suspend him for another four years through the next olympics. they maybe give him six months and he has to skip worlds. but the damage is with the united states olympic committee, trying to convince the world
8:06 am
games and that's what we're going to see is how will this play out with the ioc and the usoc for 2024. >> julie, you also wonder if there's damage being done to all these other olympians who are coming home, they should be celebrating and being celebrated. is this overshadowing everything they achieved there? >> absolutely, and that is really the saddest part of all because thursday night, for example, ashton eaton wins the decathlon, back-to-back olympic this incredibly historic moment and what is everyone talking about, ryan lochte. and the swimmers or even if you go to usa swimming, they won 33 medals at this game, and they can't change that narrative now. they can't get back in the pool so i think that is the saddest part of this whole story. these great role models and olympians not getting the coverage they should be getting. >> it is sad, julie. thank you. we do, though, want to move on to that extreme weather in kansas overnight. heavy rains causing widespread flooding, cars submerged in
8:07 am
louisiana, that catastrophic flooding is now being called the worst natural disaster since hurricane sandy. rob is back from covering it all. hey, rob, good morning. >> good morning, cecilia. we'll start with the larger system that's really encompassing the entire u.s. down to mexico. these storms had a lot of moisture with a lot of flood potential in them and we certainly saw that last night in wichita. overnight, dangerous flash flooding in kansas. streets becoming rivers as residents there wade through waist deep water overcome by 5 to 7 inches in a few hours and water reaching the doorsteps of homes and swallowing cars. these kansas floods coming in the wake of the devastation in east baton rouge that killed at least 13 people. new drone video capturing the catastrophic damage left behind. authorities now saying 58% of
8:08 am
>> we understand that you want to know about longer term housing options, as well. and we're in the process of working diligently and around the clock to assess those options. >> reporter: over 110,000 homes valued at over $20 billion are in the flood-affected zones and that includes jim jobe's house. he's been through 11 floods but this time he says there's no way to rebuild. >> my house was as nice as it's ever been. i'm losing it, and i'm sorry. >> your heart just goes out to those people. a long, painful recovery ahead. today shouldn't have a tremendous amount of rain in louisiana. this front is going to stay mostly north. texas, you'll see a lot of rain, a lot in the next couple of days especially austin to san antonio. could see 3 or 5 or more inches of rain. flash flood watches out for that part of texas through sunday. and also some severe weather potentially across parts of northern michigan, chicago, i think you'll see some showers. this has very fall-like air behind it so it'll start to feel good across parts of the country. we'll talk more about that in
8:09 am
dan. >> rob, thank you so much. so much pain on the ground in louisiana, and donald trump is now leaping into the fray touching down in the disaster zone and taking aim at president obama, this as the candidate deals with another campaign shake-up. chairman paul manafort is out and abc's mary bruce is on the story from our l.a. bureau. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning ch. well, dan, trump's never exactly fit the mold of a traditional campaigbu he's left without a single top adviser who has ever run a presidential campaign after this latest makeover. this morning trump's campaign chairman is out. paul manafort resigning amid a massive campaign shake-up tanking polls and controversy about his ties to russia. >> i think my father didn't want to be distracted by whatever things that paul was dealing with. >> reporter: that distraction coming as trump makes a major campaign reset including that rare mea culpa. >> sometimes you say the wrong
8:10 am
i have done that, and believe it or not, i regret it. >> reporter: but he's still not calling it an apology. when pressed by abc's tom llamas -- >> was that an apology? >> well, they have to take it as they see it. >> reporter: making a presidential-like visit to flood-ravaged louisiana handing out provisions showcasing his compassionate side. >> you're going to rebuild. >> i just got back from a tour of the devastation in louisiana. perhaps you can tell by the way i'm dressed. >> reporter: and slamming the president for not visiting too. >> obama ought to get off the golf course and get down there. >> reporter: speaking to a mostly white crowd in michigan trump urged african-american voters to give him a chance. >> you're living in poverty. your schools are no good. you have no jobs. what the hell do you have to lose? >> reporter: clinton responding tweeting, this is so ignorant, it's staggering. now, the white house has announced the president will visit louisiana on tuesday.
8:11 am
not going sooner. especially given the amount of devastation. but the white house says he didn't want his presence to distract from the ongoing recovery efforts. clinton has given a similar reason for not visiting. >> obama perhaps not helped by those images of him on the golf course. mary, thank you. let's bring in abc news political analyst matthew dowd who is in austin, texas. let's talk about the trump campaign. two-part question here. will the exit of paul manafort right the ship and i guess sticking with the nautical metaphors, who is actually captaining the ship right now? >> well, it's never a good sign within the last six months you have two reorganizations and we're 80 days out from this campaign and obviously they want to have an organization that's efficient but who is in charge? to me it deminds me of "iron man."
8:12 am
know who is in charge, tony stark. donald trump is in charge of this campaign to matter who he has at the helm of it. >> with apologies to pepper potts. >> we can always count on you. >> gwyneth paltrow, we have to give something to gwyneth paltrow. >> okay, let's look at this shift that happened. trump on teleprompter, a conciliatory donald trump. is this the right strategy that he needs to take to reverse these poll numbers? we are just 11 weeks out from voting. >> well, i think he needs to be authentic to who he is but also he needs to be disciplined which he hasn't been in the course of this. it reminds me a little bit of the wild west here in texas back years ago, you checked your guns at the city limits so basically when you walked in the saloon you didn't shoot yourself. donald trump has to figure out a way not to shoot himself. that's what i think it's about. keep in mind, cecilia, that if -- whoever this campaign is about is losing. donald trump wants to make it about hillary. hillary wants to make it about donald trump, so donald trump needs to be disciplined enough that this campaign becomes about hillary clinton. >> matthew dowd with the texas talk this morning. thank you, matt. we want to turn
