executive order on travel and refugees coming into our country. >> reporter: the crowd erupting into boos. it was the second blow to a signature piece of the president's agenda, that temporary ban on travelers from six muslim majority countries. this time a federal judge in hawaii bringing it to a halt just hours before the new version was set to take effect. >> the order he blocked was a watered down version of the first order that was also blocked by another judge. and should have never been blocked to start with. >> reporter: but opponents argue the new ban just like the original one discriminates on the basis of nationality and religion and they say it would harm the state's universities and tourism. president trump calling the ruling judicial overreach and offering this promise. >> we're going to fight this terrible ruling. we're going to take our case as
far as it needs to go including all the way up to the supreme court. >> reporter: the travel ban not the only fight in the president's future. president trump now bracing for a showdown over health care. in an interview with fox news, he sounded far from confident about the future of his plan to repeal and replace obamacare. >> these are going to be negotiated. we've got to go to the senate. we'll see what happens in the senate. now, right now we have five or six senators that look like maybe they're -- i'm talking about republicans because we're not going to get one democrat to vote for it. >> reporter: with the growing number of republicans joining in the opposition, president trump says the plan that is already being called trumpcare is far from a done deal. >> if this bill were perfect, if it was the greatest thing for democrats and republicans we wouldn't get one democrat vote. they're going to vote against it because of selfish, because of stupidity, because it's politics, it's really bad forour country what's going on. >> reporter: as for that campaign promise of insurance for everyone -- >> we will take care of our
people or i'm not signing it. okay, just so you understand. >> reporter: now, about that travel ban, the justice department says it strongly disagrees with this ruling coming out of hawaii. it says that the president's executive order falls squarely within his lawful authority, george, and they are vowing to defend this in court. >> let's talk more with dan abrams right here. chief white house correspondent jonathan karl down in washington. dan, will et me begin with you. what the judge did in hawaii is go at what opponents of the travel ban think is the strongest remaining argument that it's a muslim ban by another name. >> looking at president trump and his aides' own words is the most interesting and going to be controversial part of this ruling. remember, we're not talking about ultimately is it constitutional today. we're talking about the temporary restraining order. what should happen immediately? and in evaluating that, the judge looked at donald trump's own words during the campaign and, by the way, he wasn't the only judge, a judge in maryland did the same thing, looking at
other campaign surrogates, trump surrogates, what exactly they've said about the reason for this and saying, look, even they themselves are effectively admitting that the purpose was to keep must lips out. now, that's going to be a controversial thing and we'll see whether that holes up on appeal. >> jon karl, we saw how angry the president was last night and his words last night may add more fuel to the fire. >> reporter: no question about that, george. the first travel ban which was also faced the temporary restraining order, the president wanted to fight for that one in court. the lawyers convinced him that it was better to start over, to have a new ban that would be tighter legally, but what happened in this is that the judge used the president's staff's own words against him in this way, stephen miller who helped draft that ban said that the second order was simply minor technical differences but the same basic policy, now you have the president of the united
states saying that this new order was just a watered down version of the first one, which means the same arguments can be used against the second one that were used against the first. >> dan, you still believe that the white house, the administration here is unfairly solid legal with the -- >> president trump is not helping it by describing it as watered down. we're not back up to the appellate court but still at the district court, the trial court level. this will go back up to the appellate court that heard the opinion before and probably other circuits around the country but when president trump says it's a weared down version the problem is if you want to take his words literally, he's effectively saying, yeah, the same purpose behind the first one exists and so the court is saying, well, we can now use that against you so he's not helping his case. >> jon, you have the president cited that opposition among republicans in the senate and undervalued that. you're also facing now major questions in the house as well over whether this bill can pass.
>> reporter: george, right now the votes simply aren't there in either the house or the senate. the white house is working with paul ryan to try to get the votes in the house. what they're doing is opening up the possibility of changes to appease the conservative members but the more you do that, george, you run into problems with the moderates so this is a really tough battle but i would not underestimate the ability of trump to get this done. as far as conservatives go, he is extremely popular in their districts. he has a lot of leverage and the white house knows if he loses on this, it puts in jeopardy the rest of his aanyone da. >> jon and dan, thanks. president trump addressing wiretapping claims last night as top leaders from his own party say there is no evidence. let's go to pierre thomas for more. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, amy. the president is holding on to the notion he's right, not backing away from those tweets. instead it looks like he's digging in preparing to fight.
president trump taking to the airwaves last night suggesting he can prove his twitter claims about being wiretapped. >> i mean, let's see whether or not i prove it. >> reporter: trump on fox news softening his claim but offering no evidence. >> wiretap covers a lot of different things. i think you'll find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks. >> reporter: but sharing for the first time in detail where he got his information. >> i've been reading about things, i read in i think it was january 20th a "new york times" article where they were talking about wiretapping. there was an article, i think they used that exact term. i read other things. i watched your friend, bret baier, the day previous where he was talking about certain very complex sets of things happening and wiretapping. i said, wait a minute. there's a lot of wiretapping being talked about. i've been seeing a lot of things. >> reporter: none of these reports support trump's claim that president obama personally
ordered that he be wiretapped. this as pressure continues to mount on fbi director james comey to publicly say what he knows. >> director comey, have you seen any evidence that obama tapped trump tower? >> reporter: when asked that same question the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee had this extraordinary assessment of trump's tweets. >> we don't have any evidence that that took place and, in fact, i don't believe in the last week of time the people we talked to i don't think there was an actual tap of trump tower. so now you have to decide as i mentioned last week are you going to take the tweets literally and if you are, then clearly the president was wrong. >> reporter: with the white house on defense this week as well. justifying those tweets using air quotes. >> he said very clearly, quote, wiretapping, in quotes. >> reporter: last night trump backed spicer's explanation. >> when i say wiretap those words were in quotes. that really covers because wiretapping is pretty old-fashioned stuff but that covers surveillance and many other things.
>> reporter: as for director comey three days and counting before he appears before congress before he faces questions about what mr. trump said. monday comey is back to the hill this time for an open hearing. amy. >> pierre, thanks so much. let's bring in martha raddatz for more. so, martha, what do you make of this latest trump comment? >> well, i think you have to go back to the beginning. those were very, very definitive tweets that the president put out. his staff later and all officials were trying to say, oh, well, if we prove this, but it wasn't an if. president trump said that obama tapped his phones. and right now what you have is even people in the republican party as pierre said are not really backing him on this. because their credibility is on the line. this is very, very different. donald trump may be doubling down but so far there's absolutely no evidence. >> right, we even heard from attorney general jeff sessions who says he has given president
trump no reason to believe this occurred. no one is backing up trump at this point. >> absolutely nothing and president trump can say certain things may come out in the next two weeks but unless it is what he said he's going to have a credibility problem. >> what could come out? what interesting items could he possibly be referring to. >> you heard kellyanne conway in the last couple of weeks talk about different kinds of surveillance, i think she even said a microwave oven or misspoke and said they can surveil you with that or your television and we have heard about that, the television but that has nothing to do with president obama wiretapping president trump. no evidence. >> all right, martha raddatz, we appreciate it. thanks so much. george. >> okay, guys, thanks. so much happening in washington including that blockbuster new budget from the trump administration just released overnight shows a major increase to defense spending paid with billions from the state department, domestic programs, for now medicare and social security untouched. does not reduce the deficit. a dramatic change in the way
washington does business. the white house budget director mick mulvaney. thanks so much for coming in today. i know you've had a busy morning already. so, you've got the state department and environmental protection agency being cut by almost a third each, 20% cut in the national institutes of health. key members of your own party on capitol hill already saying cuts this deep mean the budget is dead on arrival. >> sure, keep this mind, george, i used to be in congress and used to represent a district. if you're a senator you represent the whole state and a lot of special interested involved. the president isn't beholden to any of those and wrote a budget based on his campaign promises and that's what you see. we took his words and turned them into numbers. >> but, you know, you also are trying to turn into numbers the new funding to build the wall on the mexican border where republicans are getting cold feet. democrats are saying that's going to lead to a government shutdown if you try to pass that increase in april. >> yeah, but they always say that. again, we're talking about the 2018 budget. there will be work on the 2017
spending as well in the weird word world that works, in the middle of the 2017 fiscal budget and enough to pay for the government tilled end of april. he's only asking for 1.6, $1.5 billion for the rest of the year to start the wall, not that much in a discretionary budget so doesn't surprise me democrats are threatening that but in the greater scheme he promised -- >> he promised mexico would pay for it. >> i'm responsible for getting the money together to build the wall and that's what i'm doing. >> he promised to balance the budget and bring down the national debt. this doesn't reduce the deficit by a dime. >> sure, that's actually correct. this is a budget blueprint. it's really the spending part of the budget. the federal budget has a bunch of different pieces, as you know. tax revenues in there and longer term policies and manslaughter spending, all of that will be encapsulated in a budget released in may. this is the first piece it allow the spending process to start in congress. >> you talk about the president's promises. he said he's not going to touch
that manslaughter spending and not going to touch social security and not going to touch medicare. you can't get to balance unless you get to those. >> he keeps his promise. this just discretionary spending. it doesn't add to the budget looking at adding 54 billion to defense and adding to border enforcement and to law enforcement generally, you're increasing spending for health care, veterans and for school choice and doing all of that without adding to the budget. adding to the deficit, excuse me. >> health care, you are a member of congress and former members are saying they simply cannot support obamacare repeal as currently drafted by the president. so what kind of changes is it going to take to get this through the house? >> i think you'll learn more today. i think the budget will go -- excuse me, talking about budget again. health care will go through the budget committee, i believe, before the end of the day today and probably be brought to the floor after it goes to the rules committee next week so there's a chance to talk about changing the bill today. talk about changing the bill over the weekend and again the
rules. go back to the beginning. this bill was not precooked and did not do what the democrats did, prenegotiate it and force it down lawmakers' throats but introduced a framework. as much repeal we could get and as much replace we could get. if members of congress want to change that to make it better that's fine. that's their right. >> any changes in the house will make it harder to get through the senate. >> again, you deal with that essentially passes the house and do it to make it perhaps in the senate but, again, part of the legislative process. if people seem to think there is a magical bill that sails through that's not the way any good legislation works. >> mr. mulvaney, thanks for coming in. michael. a close call caught on camera. a kidnapping victim escaping from her trunk and eva pilgrim is here with more. eva, this is a terrifying story. >> incredible story. check out this incredible video of a woman's dramatic escape in birmingham, alabama. watch it again from a different
angle. the black car pulls away from the convenience store, all of a sudden the trunk opens and the woman jumps out. the woman now free. running inside. frantically pleading for help. police say the woman told them the driver tried to rob her but when she told him she didn't have any money she was forced into the trunk. police are still searching for the kidnapper and, michael, this is a good time to remind people that there's a safety latch inside your trunk and when you're in there, it glows in the dark so always remember to look for that. >> thank you. amy and i were saying, i remember they added the latch to cars now, you see wow. >> my heart is pounding just watching as she was walking to her apartment but anyway, such a good reminder having that ability to be able to do that and get out saved her life, i'm sure. let's go to ginger in philadelphia with the deep freeze spreading across the northeast, ginger. whoo. >> oh, it is so brutal out there and you know what else is brutal. this video. you guys have to see this from

say about that. we begin with new jersey carjacking case. a widow fakitaking the stand testifying about the night her husband was killed in a mall parking lot three years ago coming face-to-face with one of the suspects and pushing for better security and gio benitez is here with the heartbreaking story, gio, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. she describes every detail from that fateful day and may have to repeat those another three times as all four men stand trial. this is just the beginning. it was the holiday mall shooting that shocked the country. 30-year-old lawyer dustin frie friedland shot dead during a carjacking right in front of his wife jamie. >> i'm at the short hills mall parking lot. my husband has been shot. >> reporter: the first of four suspects accused on trial. >> what had been a good day became the worst day of jamie's life. and the last day of dustin fryed
land's life. >> reporter: just ten days before christmas they went to the upscale short hills mall in new jersey for shopping and dinner to celebrate their anniversary. when they got back to their range rover she says two men confronted dustin. >> i saw him put the gun to dustin's head and i heard bang, bang, and then the windows shattered of the car. >> reporter: jamie says she all but froze in the terrifying chaos. >> you don't know what to do in these situations and it was so fast and he opens the car door, he leans in, he points the gun at my head and he said get out of the [ bleep ] car. >> reporter: the carjackers flee but the horror is prolonged when she says it took an ambulance nearly 30 minutes to arrive after the first 911 call. >> we called an ambulance a half an hour ago. >> they're at the mall. they're trying to get to you, ma'am. >> reporter: i was skreechling stay with me. finally an ambulance showed up but not really because they couldn't get the ambulance into
the parking deck and he's literally bleeding out on the ground. >> reporter: dustin later died at the hospital. as the criminal case proceeds, jamie says she also wants the mall's owners held accountable. filing a civil suit claiming they didn't provide adequate security. >> if you invite the public to shop at your mall you better make sure it's safe. this mall didn't and they need to step up to the plate and take responsibility. >> reporter: and meanwhile, this morning all four suspects have pleaded not guilty. they're all facing murder charges and on that civil suit the mall's lawyer says he can't comment on pending litigation. >> all right, thank you, gio. let's bring in abc's news chief legal analyst dan abrams and we saw the victim's wife jamie friefriedland's testimony. >> it's important in this case to frame what it's all about meaning this isn't the person who pulled 9 trigger on trial. this is one of the four defendant, the other three will be tried separately so this is the person who was effectively an accomplice, the getaway
driver and i think in those kind of cases it's even more important to remind the jurors what a horrible case this is about, so maybe in their heads they don't start thinking, well, you know, he was just a getaway driver, he wasn't as culpable. prosecutors would say he's just as culpable as the other three. >> she also filed a civil case against the mall saying it didn't provide adequate security and does she have a strong case with that and what about her claims about the first responders not being there, took them over 30 minutes? a number of claims. first a claim against the mall which is both with regard to security at the mall and also the way that the mall was almost structured that they say made it really hard for the first responders to even get there once they arrived. to even get access to where they were at. and then there's the claim against the first responders. look, the claims are going to be about negligence, right. it's going to be a tougher claim probably against the first responders, i mean first responders sometimes aren't able to get there on time. so you'll have to be able to show that they didn't show a reasonable duty of care in a
case like that. but you've got a number of different civil lawsuits here and, again, you'll have to be able to show not just that this happened but that this was their fault. that it happened. that they didn't show the care that is typically expected both in terms of the mall and emergency responders. >> she mentioned not knowing what to do in a case of a carjacking. i don't think any of us may know what to do in the case of a carjacking. experts give tips? >> gio helped me out with these in terms of thinking about how you go about looking at a situation like this and every day it's about approaching the car from the front or the back so you can see all sides. it's about knowing your surroundings and staying off your cell phone. make sure you park in a well lit area. have the keys in your hand, all sort of basic tips but what they all come down to is think and know your surroundings. >> all right. thank you, dan. >> thank you, guys. coming up, raising trump. the president's first wife is writing a book about their kids

we are back now with a closer look at the trump family brand. business is booming for ivanka's company and jared kushner's family looking to sell several million dollar buildings to the chinese. whether they're wrongly profiting from the presidency and tom llamas here with the details. >> george, good morning to you. ivana trump taking advantage of that momentum. president trump maintains his family is truly his greatest as sed and come next fall trump fans will get an inside look into how the family works. >> my kid, my family have been so unbelievable and this is not easy for them. >> reporter: president trump loves to brag about how great his children turned out. especially don jr., ivanka and eric. but ex-wife ivana says she's the one who raised them and ready to tell all in a new book she's
writing called "raising trump." >> donald always had a great head on his shoulder. >> reporter: the book will detail her whirlwind romance with the future president which ended in a divorce that played out across the tabloids. >> she said i'm mar loo and i love your husband. do you? >> yes. >> what did you say? >> get lost. i love my husband very much. >> reporter: but beyond the divorce, the book will lay out the lessons she taught her children as they were growing up. ivana jumping on just as the trump family brand in some respects is again taking off. >> when you have the power and the imagine industry of the presidency at your back, it's very difficult for it not to benefit the brand. >> reporter: son eric telling "the new york times" last week about several upcoming golf championships taking place at trump courses. eric saying, the stars have aligned. i think our brand is the hottest it has ever been. and even ivanka trump whose
brand was the target of boycotting campaigns and dropped or fell out of favor by stores like nordstrom and t.j. maxx in the wake of a bruising political campaign is seeing an increase in sales. the company telling abc news february was one of their best performing months. >> trump supporters may have rallied around the brand. if we look ahead to the next 3 1/2 years or so, i would bet that we're going to see a number of ups and downs for the ivanka trump brand. >> reporter: but some ethical hiccups including this one from white house counselor kellyanne conway. >> go buy ivanka's stuff. >> reporter: have led to questions about whether the trump family is profiting from the white house. >> she's beautiful. she's powerful. she's complicit. >> reporter: "saturday night live" poking fun with a satirical look at an ivanka trump fragrance. >> complicit. >> reporter: now all jokes aside
ivanka trump formally resigned from her company but maintains a financial interest. the i voon that trump book set out to be in september "raising trump," the title. has a ring to it. may turn into a reality show. we'll see. >> i would not bet against that. tom, thanks very much. here now is our chief business correspondent, rebecca jarvis. let's talk about ivanka's company. she is working the white house and put her assets into a blind trust. does that mean she can or cannot profit from this business. >> she can still profit from the ivanka trump label but there's somebody else running it. the first employee of ivanka trump abigail clemm is the ceo and runs things and not using the ivanka trump face on any of their new advertising. their old advertising, anything that used to have her image can still stay but not using her face on anything going forward. >> her husband jared working in the white house also divested himself from his business but reports his family is negotiated a multibillion dollar deal for this office building in
manhattan with the chinese. >> it's a chinese company that denied at this point they're involved in the deal but we won't hear from them until the deal gets done whether or not they're involved but this is a company that has been doing major deals, trophy assets throughout the company and waldorf-astoria they bought and paid a huge premium, the most expensive hotel deal we have seen in this country up to that point. they are very interested, this company, in owning u.s. assets and there's a lot of questions about what happens when they own these assets. there was even a review when they bought the waldorf-astoria and you can expect to see that out of china this round. the question is are you going to see it out of the united states. >> and whether they are buying good will or trying to buy good will from the white house. thank you. coming up on our big board an alarming new study, could ibuprofen put you at risk of cardiac arrest? plus, the moose on the loose. what causes animals to lose its cool? we'll come back and talk about

we are back now with our big board and dr. besser is at the table and let's start with that new study raising a big alarm about ibuprofen. the common over-the-counter painkiller found in so many of our medicine cabinets. danish researchers are calling for restricts on sales after linking it to a 31% increased risk of cardiac arrest. dr. besser that is certainly alarming. i just took three advil this morning because i had a headache. >> a large study out of denmark and looked at everyone who had a cardiac arrest outside the hospital over a ten-year period and compared them to people who hadn't had a cardiac arrest and found that people who had cardiac arrest were 30% to 50% more likely to have recently taken a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. these are the medications. those were prescription but advil, motrin, aleve.
very concerning numbers. the absolute risk was small but it was elevated. >> and the professor who led this study doesn't think these drugs should be sold in grocery stores or gas stations. what does the fda say? >> i don't agree with that professor. you know, we've been using these drugs safely for a long timing. the fda, you know, they've already recognized that these drugs increase your risk of a heart attack and a stroke by a small amount so there's warnings on those labels and we know that the risk for heart attack and stroke starts with your first dose and the more you take the longer you take it the greatest the risk but it's still small. >> the consumer products safety association told us it's supported by decades of scientific study and real-world use. that sounds similar to what you said. what should the average person do weighing risks when taking it an the benefits are supreme. my headache is gone. >> and i wouldn't diminish that. whenever you're taking your drug
you want to weigh risk and benefit and not casually take a drug. here you want to know what your heart risk is, you'll pay more attention and use the smallest dose necessary to get your relief. use it for a shorter period of time as you need to and if you have someone with arthritis or long-term chronic pain talk to your doctor about other approaches for pain manage many. have you tried things like meditation and acupuncture. do you need the drug? and bottom line these are life saving so this is small and have to keep it it in perspective. >> i feel better. >> i'm glad you don't have a headache. it would have been a different segment. >> i'm probably the cause of that headache. >> no. that moose on the loose at an alaskan resort. skiers swerving around the animal when it suddenly charges at people waiting in the lift line and prompted authorities
and ron magill is here. what is going on here? >> michael, i'm sure i've heard the term hangry. they've eaten nothing but twigs and wood chips and hungry, they're a little testy and what's happening is they're looking for food. so when people get too close and they feel like they're challenged they're going to get angry and come at them. the spring comes along, unfortunately, that one moose had to be euthanized. as food becomes available this will become less and less frequent. >> in colorado it looked like the running of the bulls. a snowboarder going down the mountain. you can see that moose charging alongside him. i can't imagine how terrified they must have been but these are rare instances, correct? mostly these are docile animals, correct. >> correct. the moose is the largest type of deer in the wore. if you look at that moose running down the ski slope he's not running after anybody but getting out of the way,
confused, upset and trying to run to get out of the way. it is an anomaly. thousands and thousands of moose in the northwest. you get a good video and people pay attention to it. spring comes in, those new leaves and flowers come out, they'll calm down. >> it's bear, as well. a new jersey man found a family of bears in his backyard and woke up from hibernation early. what should people be aware of this time of the year? >> well, exactly. you know, animals are coming out of their winter sleep. during that they haven't been eating and living off their fat so they're coming up and waking up hungry. you know what it's like when you don't have breakfast in the morning. people need to understand these are wild animals. just because it's in your backyard does not make it a pet. keep your distance, observe the animal but don't get too close. if you respect wildlife, keep your distance, you won't be in a position to be hurt. >> i have a healthy fear of wild animals. good to remember. ron -- >> and i get hangry. >> don't we all.

[ applause ] he's going to talk about his new movie "life" and talk about his
life with his wife blake lively and look there, his adorable daughters, two girls. >> i have such a crush on her. her. i do. >> i have a crush on him. >> that's good. there, we see i had, america. he is, of course, one of hollywood's favorite dads and has a unique take on fatherhood. see his hilarious twitter feed and should be required reading for parents everywhere. >> we have to get news from tom llamas with the morning rundown. a lot of news to get to. the big story this morning is breaking news, an explosion in france, a country that remains in a state of emergency from recent terror attacks. a letter bomb went off inside paris inside the french office of the imf, the international monetary fund. one person was injured in the small blast and this comes a day after a package containing explosives was found at the german finance ministry in
berlin. it is a no go for the president's travel ban. two judges, one in hawaii, one in maryland temporarily blocked the revised ban set to take effect today saying it amounts to religious discrimination. now, the president lashed out and is vowing to fight this all the way to the supreme court. meanwhile, the president is standing by his claim that the obama administration wiretapped him last year saying he'll be submitting proof, quote, very soon leading republicans are joining democrats to say they haven't seen any evidence and today the president lays out his first budget plan. it features a $54 billion increase for the military. financed in part by deep cuts in some domestic programs. breaking overnight an intense manhunt in detroit after the police -- after the police shooting of two police officers. one officer was shot in the neck and the other in the ankle after exchanging gunfire with the suspect. both are expected to be okay. that's the good news. the suspect was taken into custody. and some sports news here,
the u.s. women's hockey team is stunning the sports world with an unprecedented stand. the reigning world champions, get this, have decided not to defend their title and are boycotting the games. over pay. in the past the women have earned $1,000 a month, talks have stalled. the u.s. has won the past three world championships. a new alert for this morning for summer travelers. experts have crunched the numbers and have come up with the single most expensive day to fly. it is july 9th in case you're wondering, that's the sunday after july 4th. cheapair.com says fares on that sunday will be $100 above average. fares in july are among the most expensive of the year behind christmas and thanksgiving. and finally, how accurate are those self-serving fast food kiosks? a mcdonald's customer in england decided to test out his theory. could he successfully order a single slice of cheese? so he clicked on a cheeseburger minus pickle, onion, ketchup,
bun and beef patty, voila, he gets a single slice of chief but because the kiosk has no soul he was charged the full cheese burger price. i just want to know about this guy? does this guy have a life? >> that would have been my first one. >> should have charged him double just for that. >> so lonely there. >> i'm flat we can order just a piece of cheese. i can sleep tonight. >> you have done a public service. thank you. you got "pop news." [ cheers and applause ] >> i better deliver now. great crowd we have here in the studio.

>> there we go right there. >> i feel that. >> you know what -- while you were doing that i saw george writing down those hashtags. >> i'll send you the video first. [ laughter ] >> i won't hold my breath. >> also in "pop news" this morning, if you've ever watched the movie "titanic" and wondered what would it be like to see that time capsule? a london based tour operator plans to take you down to the steamship's watery grave in an underwater adventure called blue marble private and announced to bring groups of nine people on tours of the massive ship that sank in the north atlantic in 1912 after colliding with an iceberg. the trips will start spring 2018. this is real. it is happening. participants will view the wreckage on an eight-day journey 1300 feet under the sea starting off the coast of newfoundland in
canada. newfoundland, i should say. not cheap, $105,000 per guest. which ironically we did the math taking inflation into account is the equivalent of what a first class passenger would have paid to board the "titanic" before it went down. >> really. >> isn't that strange? >> yes. >> $105,000. >> i ask you guys would you do it? >> i wouldn't pay a dollar. >> you just heard no from everybody. $105,000. >> watery grave. i don't know. >> very claustrophobic. >> submarine. >> i'll let somebody else go first. >> it is fascinating to see it but i think being down there would be very eerie. quiet and spooky. well, there you go. on a positive note -- [ applause ] a new study says those hazy nights after maybe one too many
vodka sodas or chardonnays may not be too hazy after all especially if a crime is involved. a study shows when alcohol is consumed after doing wrongdoing it can protect your memory from relaying information that is wrong. they showed a staged theft on video. the drinkers were able to recall exactly what happened with much more accuracy than the nondrinkers, believe it or not. and scientists believe it is because their brains are so pickled. they can't have new information coming in. including misinformation. >> i've had many hazy nights but i've never witnessed a crime. that i know of. >> you know how many people are going to be like i told you the reason i drink so much. i'm trying to help crime. >> i'm like a drunk superhero.
>> that's not even a "pop news" investigation. >> that is real. that is my life, george. >> psycho. >> psycho pharmacology institute. drunk studies. thank you. >> we'll be back with another study, thank you, lara. this one is about diabetes and if you can reverse it. dr. besser will be here with that. plus, tory johnson, "deals & steals." when you buy a used car you should feel confident. that's why carmax has over 40,000 cars to choose from nationwide. with prices clearly marked, the same online as they are in the stores. that should give you some car-buying confidence. the type of confidence you need to wear white after labor day. the type of confidence to suddenly switch to an english accent for no reason whatsoever. yep... . at carmax, it's all about confidence. nothing but net.

three years or less whether they could reverse that and took one group and gave them routine diabetic care and other had intensive care and three medications for diabetes, a nutritionist to help them lose weight and an exercise trainer to get them out there at least 30 minutes a day with tough activity. and so after eight weeks in one group and 12 weeks in another group what they found was they took people off medications. those in the intensive group, 50% to 70% no longer had high blood sugar. that was the good news. over the course of about a year they all kind of slid back and had to come back on medications but, you know, it was a small study to see if it could be feasible. >> because they didn't keep up with the changes. >> they stopped with the physical therapy -- with the athletic trainer and nutritionist. maybe if you had that the full time you would still see benefits but gives you some hope that maybe you can reverse diabetes in some people. >> soy, people would have dealing with diabetes right now, how can they limit the complications. >> i think there are lessons from this and other studies.

[ applause ] yeah, so, you know. >> here's some advice for all of you. go read his twitter feed. especially if you are parents, it is so, so funny. i want to read a couple of the gems. >> oh, no. >> right here. >> police are waiting. >> i watched "frozen" without my 2-year-old this morning. despair reveals itself in many forms. >> that is true. >> i'm teaching my daughter the sun goes down each night because it's mad at her. probably gonna write a book on parenting at some point. >> yeah. working on that right now. >> my daughter is only 6 months ole already drawing, i'd hang it on the fridge but honestly it's absolute garbage. >> that's true. yeah. >> you're an honest parent. >> she even barely hit the pavement with that. it's garbage. yeah, i'm going to hell. we've sort of circled back to. >> you say what people think,
it's funny. >> i've always had empathy for parents especially like flying and that sort of thing. i remember before i had kids i was always like, god, that's hard. you know, because you can see they're sweating and nervous because their kids are yelling and everyone is mad at them and you're just like -- oh, i know and i'm the same way. i would -- i would rather drink a piping hot bowl of liquid rabies than get on a plane with my two children. >> i also hear by the way -- [ applause ] >> it's like -- [ applause ] well, at 2 years old they juice have to like rip all their clothes and introduce themselves to everyone on the plane. please, can we land in a farmer's field. >> congratulations on the new film. >> thank you. >> by the way -- that film "life" i saw it last night, oh, my gosh. by the way, i let my daughters watch it. was i wrong? it's so good. >> you're asking him for parenting advice. >> yeah, don't ask me for parenting advice. >> i knew he'd told me it was okay. >> let's all watch "the
exorcist." >> we have. >> you need to start a twitter handle. >> we were on the edge of our seat screaming. it was pretty intense. you were very intense. >> yes, yes. >> there's a surprising moment with you. >> there are some surprising moments. it's an amazing cast and amazing story and not that farfetched. that's what i love about life. i read this incredible script from "the deadpool" brighters and this story where they bring aboard this organism they found in space and they hooked it and brought it on to the iss. >> it grows rapidly. >> it isn't like this nefarious evil creature. it's just designed to survive and what is scarier than bawaki up to a bunch of human faces staring at you. it's a pretty intense ride. >> let's take a look. >> miranda. >> nothing in that lab can malfunction. >> it's on me. >> yeah, it's on you. >> you know, five guys back home
can do my job. nobody can do yours except you. we don't know what it is. you're playing around with it like it's your buddy. i'm your buddy. >> this will never be a controlled experiment so agree we made our first and last mistake. [ cheers and applause ] >> that is the tip of the iceberg. this movie takes you an a journey. jake gyllenhaal. >> amazing. >> is with you in the film. how did you guys do together? i hear you've become real-life friends. >> we did -- i've done almost 50 movies in 24 years and every time you work with people you're like, i'm going to hang out with this guy all the time and you never see them again. but jake is one of those guys -- i think he's one of the easily the most interesting actor working in hollywood today. definitely one of my favorites and at the same time one of the kindest guys i ever met so suddenly i found myself we're hanging out all the time. we live near each other. it's great. it's cool.
>> you live in tburbs. >> my wife blake is good at cooking and jake might just be a little bit better. >> really? >> he can throw down. it gets very competitive. >> i tell you right now, you probably should have saved that one. >> i'm moving out at the end of the month. i'm moving out right now at this guessing already making plans. >> a lot of people, this movie "life" and idea debtpool" they're connected and both written by the same writers. >> right. >> you're not sick of these guys yet. >> no. i love these guys. yeah, they're -- we've been partners for eight, nine years now so, yeah. >> you released a little clip of idea deadpool 2," man. everybody is excited. >> it's not actually "deadpool 2." it's just a short. >> not really "deadpool" 2" but a short. over 23 million watched this thing. is "deadpool 2" coming. >> oh, yeah, definitely. >> what is one thing you have to put in the movie?
one thing you definitely wanted. >> there's a lot of stuff we were trying to get in the first one we just had to cut for time that we may try to see if we can sneak in somewhere else. we had in "deadpool 1" are he sings "the gambler." kenny rogers' "gambler" while kicking people's butts. so i wish that was in there so maybe who knows that will see the light of day. >> a great tease. >> something to be said about letting everything else go and doing a new movie too so we'll figure it out. >> a while away. we have to be patient. >> going into production now. >> okay, good. >> real soon. >> we're excised, man. we're extra excited too. you got to make sure to check out "life" first and that hits theaters nationwide on march 24th. make sure you go see ryan reynolds. >> hi, blake. we love you. tell her i said hi please. >> i definitely will.

so much going on. this structure was built in the nether land and brought here. it is the first time this is displayed. you can see so many ways of learning about moss it takes in the exhaust an cuts down on the stuff that we breathe. for now let's get a check of the local weather. >> reporter: thanks, ginger, so nice to have you here, so many great reasons to go to the flower show. if you do it today, bundle up. windchill 14 we're heading to 37 that's better than yesterday. sunshine and cold, tomorrow, sunshine fades behind clouds. w. because the whole theme is holland, of course, i'm a dutch girl. all right. let's head on back to you in the studio. >> ginger, the shoes fit. it looks good on you. we are here now with hollywood
legend jessica lange. she has two oscars, five golden globes and a tony now playing another legend joan crawford in "feud," bette and joan. take a look. ♪ >> ow! >> cut, cut, cut. >> you okay? >> she did that on purpose. >> i barely touched her. >> are you just going to stand there? >> did you get it? [ cheers and applause ] >> now, in the movie, in the original, she was supposed to pretend to kick her. >> yeah. >> and she actually did kick her in real life. >> that's what they say. there are conflicting reports. >> did susan try to relive that moment and kick you? >> no, actually it was very well choreographed. there was no problem with that. >> and, you know, joan, joan
crawford and bette davis, two hollywood legends. you said you think they would have been friends instead of enemies if hollywood didn't pit them against each other. >> i think naturally there was a lot of competition between them and then when they ended up doing this film together, which is only a small part of our series, you know, they were for publicity, for marketing, for all those thing, they were kind of set upon each other. and it was more than i think, you know, it could have been or should have been. but, yeah. >> you and susan bring these characters to life and do you think joan crawford would be happy with how you portrayed her? >> well, i think who can say? i mean i don't know, i mean i never met her, you know, i tried to do something as honest, i mean, from my point of view, you
know, with all the research that i did and everything and everything i learned about her, so, i don't hopefully i don't know. >> if it you ever played me in a movie i'd be very happy. >> that would be a nice stretch. >> slightly. tell us about working with susan sarandon and this is your first time working together. how is that possible? >> well, no, i mean, you know, there are a lot of actresses of my generation that i haven't had a chance to work with yet that i'd love to but suing and i got along great. it was a long shoot but it was really -- it was interesting work, yeah, we had a good time. we've worked very -- in a very similar manner so there was none of the tension that comes between actors when they're coming at it. >> i'm glad you two did work together in this because it definitely is worth the weight.
one of our favorite movies is 35 years old "tootsie." you won an oscar. you won an oscar for that role so what would you tell yourself 35 years ago before you wonn an oscar for that. >> i almost didn't do it. i turned it down time -- i had just finished a film called "frances" which was this huge dramatic role and, you know, when sydney pollack and dustin came to me about doing "tootsie" i thought it's so lightweight and i don't want -- i would say just get over it, girl. just do it. don't make them ask for months and months, but, yeah, it was one of the best digs i ended up ever making because it's a classic film. >> you did it. you did it well. you won an oscar and that is a great decision. >> yeah, that was a good one. [ applause ] >> jessica, thank you. thank you so much. really appreciate you coming. and "feud," bette and joan airs
so we're back now with our new series best by. it's all about decoding expiration dates and this morning we're going into the medicine cabinet. abc's mara schiavocampo is here with more on that. good morning to you, mara. >> good morning, lara. the big question when can you throw things outy there are some telltale signs, for example, if your medicine changed color or consistency, time to toss it. it's not always so clear-cut. a lot has to do with whether you're storing it in the right place and guess what, chances are you're not. the bosshart family has no shortage of medicine. two fully stocked medicine cabinets with a mix of over the counter and prescription drugs for pretty much whatever ails them. >> anti-inflammatory, pain relievers, muscle relaxers. >> reporter: like so many of us mom emily wonders when it's time
to toss these and replace them. joined by our chief medical and health editor dr. richard besser we joined them in knowledge. >> hi. >> reporter: first stop, the medicine cabinet. >> whoa, a lot of medication. >> turns out nearly half of the family's medicine is expired. >> asthma medicine, expired 2011. epipen for severe allergic reaction, expired five years ago. >> 2018. this one is good. so, does the expiration date mean it's time to toss them. for critical life-saving prescriptions like epipen, heart drug, blood pressure and asthma med, yes. it is imperative to stick to the dates marked to ensure full potency. >> this is something that you don't want to be counting your life on. >> reporter: same for antibiotics, those should be immediately tossed when done. but what about over-the-counter drugs, many experts say using expired over-the-counter headache and other medication in pill form may be fine.
>> something is expired it won't hurt you but won't help the way it's supposed to. >> for most things that's true. you're not certain they'll work and a lot depends where are you storing it. >> reporter: the best place for storage, a cool and dry spot like a linen closet, not your bathroom. >> the heat, the humidity in the bathroom, that's going to lead to a breakdown in drugs faster than it otherwise would. any drug that smells funny, the color's changed, it doesn't look li right, you don't want to use it. >> never buy expired medication. we tagged along as the consumer department of affairs did this. finding four bottles of expired motrin in one shop and expired children's medicine in another. keeping an eye on expiration date the prescription for a healthy medicine cabinet. okay, so just how often should you go through your medicines. twice a year is fine and one easy way to remember, when you
change your clocks go through your medicine cabinet and make sure everything is good. >> a lot of great tips and dr. b. is back. you have revealed sometimes you do use expired over-the-counter medicines. >> that's right. i'll use fever medicine, pain medicine, allergy medicine. depends on your level of comfort because the companies only test them to that expiration date but if you're storing them properly they should be fine and won't be dangerous. >> cool, dry place like a linen closet, not it in a bathroom where there is moisture. how do you get rid of expired medication. >> very important. don't want anyone to get into those and don't want the drugs to get into the water supply. here's what you do, open up a ziploc bag and take your medications and you dump them into the ziploc bag. there you go. easily, easily. you don't dump them on the floor because little kids will get into them. >> then you have a happy puppy. >> then you take some used coffee groups or kitty litter and put that in there to make it
