>> reporter: a change in venue for the president this weekend but not a change in tone when it comes to the press. trump tweeting the fake news media is not my enemy. it is the enemy of the american people. it comes after he ripped into reporters earlier this week. >> quiet, quiet, quiet. >> reporter: focusing on the press over policy. >> the news is fake, it's all fake news. this is fake news. the press should be ashamed of themselves. >> reporter: meanwhile, vice president pence turns his attention to security. in his first trip overseas pence talking tough as questions mount about the administration's possible ties to russia. >> the united states will continue to hold russia accountable. even as we search for new common ground which as you know president trump believes can be found. >> reporter: hours before, senator john mccain at the same security conference in germany suggesting there's a long road ahead. >> and many respects this administration is in

do. >> reporter: the president is hoping to change the conversation with these events. this is now the third weekend in a row that he has spent here at his mar-a-lago estate, dan and paula. >> mary, thank you. let's bring in amy holmes, a conservative political analyst who works for rasmussen reports. good morning. >> good morning. >> i know you like the conversation on -- >> i did. i like the emphasis. >> you schooled me before so everybody knows. let's start with today's rally. remarkable as we said he's holding a campaign rally organized by his 2020 re-election campaign just a month in. why is he doing this. >> because we're covering it and it's his way to reach the american people through the media. he doesn't have to bring the camera. we're bringing the camera. we're going to be broadcasting it. if you turn on cable news i'm sure it will be full of donald trump delivering his message and as he said in his thursday press conference he said i'm making my case to the american people and the press get to be
7:06 am
seems to be this battle brewing between the press andp. i want to talk about that tweet yesterday, he called the media, quote, the enemy of the american people. do you think this is a blatant undermining of the media and freedom of the press, the first amendment md? >> those are two very separate questions. i do think that it is a tactic on the part of the president to undermine the press and blunt their impact on his administration, all of the negative stories coming out many of which i would say i think are a little half baked. a lot of insinuation, light on fact, very heavy on accusation and donald trump is saying to the american people don't believe everything you read. and you -- guess what, at rasmussen reports we found out a majority of americans say they don't trust the media and think the media is biased against donald trump. your second question, is this an attack on the first amendment and four estate?
7:07 am
an attack on the truth, well, that's up to us toporting it. >> let me ask you about something that's going to be interesting to watch unfold, congress is on break. members going back to their home districts and many holding town halls, a lot of left wing activists are vowing to show up and make noise. not dissimilar to the tea party. are we seeing the beginning of a tea party on the left and is likely to be powerful. >> i think we are and one of the interests reports i saw is that the progressive left is thinking about challenging democrats in primaries. remember, that's what the tea party did to republicans. fielded their own candidates to put republican feet to the fire. you know, this energy that we're seeing the post-election, post-inauguration coming from the progressive left with all the marches and rallies, at first it looked very diffuse like what is the cause. now it's starting to gain focus and if they can field these candidates to challenge democratsou
7:08 am
new tea party in the making. >> perhaps for many years to come. amy holmes from rasmussen, thanks. >> come back. why want to move to our big story, southern california is being slammed about i a major storm. look at this airport in santa barbara. that's an airport where flooding has completely shut down the runway. up to 9 inches of water just one of the many startling images we're seeing and rob is in pacific palisades with more. rob, good morning to you. >> good morning, what a remarkable turnaround from the drought but we've gone way too far in the other direction. one of the worst storms this area has seen in the last decade. over 8 inches falling in santa barbara county and wind gusting and this surf continues to pound the coastline. it is moving down to the south and east, some thunderstorms possible today as the larger storm lumbers onshore and flash
7:09 am
effect at the higher elevations some warnings in the way of snow. as it times out the core into the desert southwest but another storm is lining up sunday night into monday. this one looks potent as well and pointed at central and northern california but it'll have wind and tremendous amount of rain. also could see a half a foot of rain there where we have obviously some infrastructure structures in the oroville dam. flash flooding causing a dangerous commute even some landslides and sinkholes and we find our marci gonzalez near one of those in studio city this morning. good morning, marci. >> reporter: good morning, rob. massive sinkhole more than ten feet deep. so deep it swallowed a van and car and crews busy pulling one of those vehicles out. also, a woman told rescuers she thought she was going to die. the gigantic hole opening
7:10 am
finding the woman standing on her hupside down car as a river of water surrounds her and -- >> there it goes. >> i turned around and the second car fell into the sinkhole. >> reporter: that second driver able to get out of the car before it fell in. the powerful storm also eroding freeways leaving this fire truck dangling off the edge of interstate 15. the firefighters inside escaping before the roadway gave out. around los angeles, other roadways overwhelmed by the floodwaters. forcing drivers to abandon their cars. >> 14a commute from hell. >> reporter: this mountainside giving way threatening homes below. >> there goes the trees. >> oh, the whole -- >> reporter: huge interstates of interstate 138 turning into a muddy swamp. struggling to free stranded
7:11 am
the driver in this car unable to get out before the floodwaters rushed in. a driver in front of them had to be rescued. another man electrocuted by downed power lines. damaging winds ripping the metal off this trailer. massive trees crushing cars. this man barely escaping in time. in huntington beach this man fighting against the heavy winds and rain trying to walk along the pier. during the height of the storm 78,000 customers lost power in los angeles county alone. fortunately the power is on here and they are putting it to good use. you can see still working to pull those vehicles out. incredibly, the woman who was rescued from this hole is expected to be okay. she was taken to a hospital and was last listed in fair condition. >> harrowing. marci, thank you very much for your reporting this morning. we'll turn to the twist in the assassination of the half brother of the north korean leader kim jo
7:12 am

7:13 am
woman, an indonesian living in malaysia told police she thought she was part of a hidden camera tv show spraying kim jong-nam along with several others in the face for laughs. with no knowledge of the possible dangerous chemicals inside. south korea, however, is calling kim jong-nam's death an assassination by north korean agents. >> the public shouldn't assume that this is a prank. there's every indication based on north korea's history that this was a targeted kill. >> reporter: and overnight a fourth suspect carrying a north korean i.d. was arrested by malaysian police. this morning malaysian authorities are requesting a matching dna sample from family before releasing the body of kim jong-nam and that's unlikely to come from the highly secretistic dynasty. dan and paula in head scratching details for sure. jennifer eccleston, thank you. back at home in
