[ cheers and applause ] good morning, everyone. and we are talking about that
8:02 am
final conclusive game, right? the stage is set. >> it's all right, though. the stage is set for tomorrow's college basketball championship game. it is -- >> 'nova/unc. >> that's right and there was so much anticipation for this weekend's final four matchup. one turned out to be a record blow-out. we'll have more on that in a moment. but we do begin this morning with the weather. >> yeah, for millions of americans this april morning feels more like february. look at this video out of grand rapids, michigan. it is, let me remind you, the second week of spring, and they are dealing with what looks like blizzard conditions. >> here's the map. a clipper system is moving across the northern part of the country bringing snow and high winds to major cities. >> yes, as one of our weather staff said this morning, the winds of change and then behind this clipper system another clipper system, which is going to bring temperatures down into the teens in many spots so out to rob who is covering the story from pittsburgh, p.a. hey, rob. >> hey, dan. what a turn of events for the northeastern third of the country. just two days ago temperatures
8:03 am
near 80 degrees. now below freezing. it is cold. there is some snow, but it's the wind that's the big story. this morning, the midwest and northeast getting a high wind assault. look at what a 71-mile-per-hour wind gust did to this chipotle sign in indiana taking down this metal sign and all the bricks with it. >> the sign fell onto his honda accord smashing it to bits. >> reporter: in new jersey, wind blowing out windows, sucking a tv right outside. >> i just looked through my window and i run out of the room. >> reporter: take a look in chicago as this american flag flapped heavily in 66-mile-per-hour winds and snow. connecticut, loud hail pounding the ground covering this homeowner's deck almost completely. >> get inside. >> reporter: over 90,000 people in the dark from the midwest to the mid-atlantic including 25,000 in maryland, 20,000 in central indiana and
8:04 am
7,000 in louisville. and then there's the snow, over 7 inches of snow falling in michigan making for a dicey drive. and there is snow falling now across upstate new york across central new england, certainly cold enough for that, and we'll get to the windchills in a second. take a look at this radar. this low swirling, a very dynamic system. the southeast side, that's the warm side but it's really the winds cranking. high wind watches for the next system out in the midwest. this is what we expect this morning, still gusting 40 to 50 miles an hour. still enough to do damage as it exits through this afternoon and then the winds die down and the next system brings in more winds across the midwest beginning tonight in through tomorrow morning. similar, not quite as potent but enough to do damage and the cold, temperatures feeling like they're in the teens this morning and another blast of cold air coming in with the next system to make it feel even colder. unbelievably cold for that matter. today is opening day for major league baseball. we are inside pnc park. there is some snow on the infield. who would have thought, dan,
8:05 am
and more on that in just a few minutes. >> i do not approve of this april. i want my money back. rob, thank you. we're going to switch gears to the race to the white house. t-minus two days till a pivotal primary in wisconsin. donald trump out on the turns this weekend trying to right the ship after a very rough week. ted cruz is hoping for a win, which might set the party up for a contested convention. that would be historic. abc's devin dwyer is out on the campaign trail in milwaukee. devin, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. after an at times ugly week in the race, the candidates sparring over their wives, tabloid rumors, physical violence, a possible turning here in wisconsin as ted cruz holds the lead and donald trump expresses a regret. >> raise your hands, kids. i promise, donald j. trump. >> reporter: as he courts wisconsin conservatives. >> that i will never take drugs. >> reporter: donald trump is delivering a pledge. >> and you know what else, no cigarettes, right? >> all: no cigarettes. >> all right, kids. come here. come here. they're beautiful kids.
8:06 am
>> reporter: trump promoting morale as he now tells "the new york times" he has a regret, calling it a mistake for retweeting an unflattering photo of ted cruz's wife, heidi. if i had to do it again, i wouldn't have sent it, trump said. >> it's gotten to the point where i could not care less about donald trump. [ cheers and applause ] if he says it's a mistake, that's fine. >> reporter: but for the second time in a week trump stirring up angst among social conservatives over abortion. in an interview with "face the nation" trump seems to suggest abortion will remain the law of the land. >> at this moment the laws are set, and i think we have to leave it that way. >> reporter: his campaign clarifying that trump wants new laws to protect the unborn but that current policy must remain that way now until he is president. later trump said he stands by his original answer. >> what i said was so good, it was so perfect. >> reporter: overnight "snl" mercilessly mocking trumps treatment of women. >> when i say women, you say suck. women. >> all: suck. >> women. >> all: suck.
8:07 am
>> reporter: trump tells "the new york times" in an interview he can turn around his ratings among women by being h himself and highlighting the women in his life, his wife melania will campaign here for the first time tomorrow. paula. >> well, "snl" certainly not doing him any favors, devin, thank you. democrats hillary clinton, bernie sanders are not only running neck and neck in wisconsin, they are at each other's throats. they're now debating about debates ahead of the delegate rich new york primary later this month. abc's david wright is focused on that part. of the race for us this morning. hi, david. >> reporter: hi, paula. bernie sanders is on a bit of a roll right now. he has won six out of the last seven contests narrowing the delegate gap with clinton and yet clinton still has an almost insurmountable lead with the so-called superdelegates who overwhelmingly favor her. can he overcome that? in eau claire, wisconsin, saturday, hillary clinton tried to make the case that
8:08 am
bernie sanders just isn't democrat enough. >> that's kind of important if we're selecting somebody to be the democratic nominee. >> reporter: and yet sanders, the democratic socialist, is having none of it. >> it is just too late for the same old, same old establishment politics. >> reporter: he's been convincing voters of that beating clinton by huge margins in state after state, and that's helped him to close the gap among pledge delegates, the delegates earned by victories in primaries and caucuses. but the fix is in for clinton when you count the so-called superdelegates, the party insiders who have overwhelmingly pledged support for her. >> the superdelegates are going to have to make a very difficult decision. >> reporter: democrats came up with superdelegates after 1980 when ted kennedy challenged the incumbent president jimmy carter and hurt him at the convention. >> i think i have to plead guilty to being at least one of the creator of unpledged add-on delegates. >> reporter: that's tad devine speaking in 2008.
8:09 am
devine is now chief strategist for the bernie sanders campaign now hoping to convince those superdelegates to abandon clinton and side with his candidate, the insurgent. there is a precedent for that. it happened eight years ago when hillary clinton was the early front-runner and a guy named barack obama came out of nowhere. bernie sanders not there yet, but you got to figure that the republicans are probably wishing they had a superdelegate system because it might solve some of their problems. >> yes, david. >> i'm kind of wishing i could go back to college and take another political science class. and brush up on this. thank you very much. >> thanks, david. for more on all this let's bring in a guy who understands it quite well, abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos getting ready to host "this week" later this morning. hey, george, good morning. so, what do you think of sanders' chances in wisconsin and if he keeps winning states can he convince these superdelegates to switch? their allegiance? >> he's ared right now. we'll see what happens tuesday. i think the big state to watch for, though, is new york on april 17th. wisconsin alone isn't going to
8:10 am
make that big of a difference for bernie sanders. likely to basically split the delegates with hillary clinton but if he can beat her in her home state, she's served as senator from new york, big delegate cash there, that could start to shake this race up and maybe start to convince some superdelegates that hillary clinton is not as strong a choice as they believed. >> over on the republican side for so long we've been talking about the contested convention, a long shot but it's looking more and more like a reality and how ugly could things get if that -- >> a lot depends on what happens in wisconsin as well. if ted cruz does win in wisconsin he is now ahead in the polls by some polls by double digits. that dramatically increases the chance of it, making it more difficult for donald trump to get to the 1,237 he needs. kasich, that's his only hope. lots of fun. i'll talk to him on "this week." at the same time, you have an ally of donald trump, roger stone, saying, calling for days of rage protests at the convention if, indeed, donald trump goes into
8:11 am
the convention with a lead but doesn't get the nomination. it could get ugly. we've seen contested conventions before, not for a long time but this one is completely unpredictable. >> and now trump is saying won't promise to support the nominee if it's not him. >> all the candidates, yeah. >> so, it could get extremely ugly. george, thank you. and i want to remind everybody george has a big show in morning. he's going to go one-on-one with candidates john kasich as he just mentioned and bernie sanders. that's coming up later on "this week" right here on abc. george, thanks again. >> okay, guys. >> thanks, dan. turning now to horror on a california highway. a small plane lost control north of san diego then plowed into the back of a car which had pulled over on the side of the road. this morning one person is dead. several others seriously injured and abc's lauren lyster has more for us from los angeles. >> report of a plane down, an airplane down on the freeway. >> reporter: four victims in this plane ride turned tragedy in the hospital this morning battling their injuries. that small two-seater aircraft running into trouble at around 9:00 a.m. saturday morning.
8:12 am
>> you could hear him coming real slow, sputtering a little bit. >> reporter: plowing into the back of a sedan on the side of this california highway. dying in the wreck, 38-year-old antoinette isabella of san diego seen here competing with her roller derby league. three other members riding with her in that car. the dramatic rescue caught on cell phone video. bystanders and first responders smashing the windows prying open the door. motorists rushing to help. >> he and two other people are trying to get the doors of the plane open to get the pilot out. >> reporter: the 60-year-old man now facing life-threatening injuries. his female passenger in surgery saturday. >> this aircraft was a home built aircraft. it was built from a kit by somebody in their garage or at an airport. so these kinds of airplanes generally have a much worse safety record than, say, a corporate jet or an airliner would. >> reporter: just before the collision that morning, that car's driver pulling over to connect his cell phone. >> they did everything right. they did it, pulled over and stopped.
8:13 am
this never really happens, and it's amazing that there weren't even more injuries. >> reporter: the three other people in the car were taken to the hospital with injuries. the driver posting on facebook he wishes that day could start over saying he's just working to process it all. meanwhile, we're still waiting to learn exactly what caused that plane's crash landing. dan. >> more questions. lauren, thank you. new video this morning of the moment when a judge made a decision from the bench that has landed him in some serious legal trouble. take a look. he orders his bailiff to deliver an electric shock to a defendant. abc's eva pilgrim has this just released video and the sentence the judge is now facing. eva, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. a maryland judge finding himself on the other side of the bench being charged and punished for what happened in his courtroom this morning. his victim is speaking out. we want to warn you this video is hard to watch. a shocking moment in court. >> aaagh. >> reporter: ending with the
8:14 am
judge taking a plea deal. >> i regret that it ended this way. >> reporter: maryland circuit court judge robert nalley now sentenced to one-year probation for ordering a deputy to deliver a stun gun on then delvon king who was in his court representing himself on a gun charge he later took a deal on. >> it felt like fire went through my back. >> reporter: you can see in this newly released courtroom video from july 2014 judge nalley is running short on patience. >> i didn't ask you what your name was. i asked how you wish to be addressed. >> reporter: king says he was trying to make a legal argument. judge nalley eventually ordered him to quit talking. >> stop, stop. >> reporter: when he refused, judge nalley takes action. >> mr. sheriff, do it. use it. >> reporter: it being a stun cuff. an electronic ankle bracelet that administers a 50,000-volt shock. >> aaagh. >> all right. i'm going to take five. >> reporter: judge robert nalley now taking a permanent break. banned from the bench fined
8:15 am
$5,000 and ordered to take anger management classes. and this wasn't the judge's first run-in with the law. in 2009 he pled guilty to slashing the tires of someone who parked in what he considered be his spot at the courthouse. >> anger management classes. interesting. >> 50,000 volts. >> yeah. >> that's pretty incomprehensible. >> yeah, it sounded really painful, eva, thank you. >> thanks, pimp. let's look at the other top stories and for that we get it over to dr. ron claiborne. good morning, sir. >> good morning, dan and paula. good morning, everyone. we begin with nearly two weeks since the terror attacks at a brussels airport. it is now re-opened with tightened security, as you can imagine. three brussels airlines flights heading to european cities are scheduled to depart from the airport today. airport officials expect to be at 20% flight capacity by tomorrow and back to full service by june but delta air lines says it will not resume flights between atlanta and brussels until march of 2017.
8:16 am
and still in brussels, more than 100 people arrested on saturday for staging a demonstration against islamophobia in defiance of a ban on all rallies, those events prohibited out of concern about violence which happened last sunday a week ago when police had to use a water cannon to break up a rowdy crowd there. and a security scare at one of manhattan's busiest tourists site, new york city's times square, not far from here normally jammed on a saturday night, evacuated when counterterrorism officers spotted a suspicious truck left unattended, the engine running and some wires exposed. it turned out to be a false alarm, though. the driver left the vehicle running while making a delivery. and after successfully hacking into that iphone belonging to one of the san bernardino killers, the fbi is now getting flooded with calls by local law enforcement agencies from across the country asking them to unlock iphones that they have sized in criminal cases. prosecutors in arkansas, in fact, say the fbi has agreed to help them get into a murder suspect's iphone and ipod.
8:17 am
the fbi would not confirm that and the agency did send a letter saying, quote, it will consider any tool that might be helpful to our partners. apple expressed concerned about users' privacy. and finally, who says losing weight cannot be fun? take a look at these moves. this 9-year-old boy in china took up salsa dancing and samba to shed some pounds when he discovered a true talent. some moves that rachel is saying there making him a viral sensation. the kid says he has not lost any weight but he gets to meet a lot of hot girls. >> there you go. >> i guess it's working. >> did he really say that or did you just fabricate -- >> it was in chinese and my mandarin is a little rusty. he said -- he either said that or i love dancing. >> right. if he had said it in szechuan, you would have gotten that. >> i would have gotten that. >> the mandarin part got you. >> a little rough. >> i love that kid. great story. okay, all right. let's send things back to rob in pittsburgh. rob, where it's feeling a little more like football weather than baseball weather. >> it is and, ron, once again
