christian wilkins summed up how i feel about being back on the show. check this out last night. a defensive lineman over 300 pounds with the splits. that's called happy and celebrating. congratulations to those guys. >> oh, no, he didn't. >> oh. once again. oh, and the team so excited. quarterback deshaun watson telling his team with two minutes to go, i love this, let's be legendary, let's go be great and they were and a lot of people bereft. did you see the gun show? >> you loved this. >> he was trending all night long. >> i want his workout program. >> a lot of people do. we'll talk to him. >> jesse live in tampa. busy day on capitol hill. >> a look live at capitol hill. it'll be busy there. first confirmation hearings for president-elect trump's cabinet nominees. they start this morning. alabama senator jeff sessions for attorney general. retired general john kelly up first and mary bruce on capitol hill for all of it.
7:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, george. this is a big moment for the new administration and the start of these marathon confirmations, ten hearings over just three days with eight nominees. first up as you mentioned senator jeff sessions for attorney general. you can expect his record on immigration and civil rights to take center stage. 31 years ago before the same panel sessions was rejected for a federal judgeship over concerns he made racist remarks charges he has passionately denied and now sessions will have his fellow senators testifying on his behalf. but in an unprecedented move, democratic lawmakers will be testifying against him. senator cory booker says he has to speak out because sessions' comments are a call to conscience but despite democrats' concerns they don't have the power to block any of trump's nominees and the president-elect is confident they will all be confirmed. >> they're going great. confirmations are going great. >> there's some concern about jeff sessions in particular. >> i tnk
7:04 am
high quality man. thank you. >> reporter: also today for the first time fbi director james comey will be here on the hill answering questions for the first time since that bombshell announcement about his investigation into clinton's e-mails right before the election. comey will be testifying before lawmakers about russian intelligence activities just four days after he briefed the president-elect on russia's interference in the u.s. election. george. >> he will get a lot of tough questions. thanks very much. let's go over to robin. >> donald trump also announcing a big role for his son-in-law naming his daughter ivanka's husband as a senior white house adviser. abc's cecilia vega is here with the details and never a dull moment. >> no, and i think it's going to go this way for probably four more years so, look, this news is coming on jared kushner's 36th birthday. this was a close confidant for donald trump. behind the scenes in the campaign and now he's going in as the senior adviser to the president there in the west wing. he won't be taking a salary when in there.
7:05 am
white house has turned into a family affair. jfk, of course, we know appointed his brother as attorney general. we remember hillary clinton on those health care panels, she was there during her husband's administration. this time ethics experts are split on whether this kushner appointment might be violating federal anti-nepotism laws. there are also questions about potential conflicts of interest. he runs his family's part of his family's real estate empire. he'll be stepping down from that and he's also the owner of the new york observer, he will be stepping down from that as well and also we're told be divesting substantial assets but, you know, democrats are calling on at least some of them the doj to investigate his new role in the white house. >> they will take a look but we have seen something similar like this before so not surprising in that regard and it's pretty much been very firm about she does not want a role with the white house, ivanka. >> a lot thought she would go into the white house given her role as a confidante for her father. sources are telling us
7:06 am
point she will not immediately have a formal role in the white house. that he's instead going to be concentrating on settling her family into d.c., they have that big move coming up. >> and big inauguration coming up and donald trump feeling it could very well be a record setter. but he went so far as to say dresses are sold out there. >> some are saying you're being sworn in and you're talking about the stock of inaugural ball gowns. what are you doing? i know you were curious. we called around. a lot of dress stores, there is no shortage of ball gowns in the nation's capital so, ladies, you're good to go. >> thank you for that. george. >> okay, let's talk to jon karl and martha raddatz. jon karl with me and let's begin with this jared kushner, the appointment of jared kushner. going to be in the white house. not taking the salary. what you've got now, though, are four very powerful people around donald trump with equivalent roles, jared kushner, you have kellyanne conway, steve ban none as chief strategist, reince priebus as chief of staff. >> you have a team of rivals basically right outside the oval office
7:07 am
reince priebus is the chief of staff but steven ban none is the chief strategist a role we haven't seen before and jared kushner is more powerful than all of those and also the one he can't fire so, but, look, this will be an interesting thing because their views are different. i mean priebus is an establishment republican, chairman of the party. stephen bannon led the rebellion against the party leaders and if you look at jared kushner's background he was known as a new york city liberal democrat. >> except it appears he struck an alliance with bannon during the campaign. >> he did. this will test that alliance. >> to martha raddatz right now. you have hearings beginning today, martha. the attorney general but the big ones begin on national security, general james mattis. rex tillerson, theead of exxonmobil, former head of exxonmobil and let's talk about that first. he had good meetings with senators but will face real questions not only about russia but what
7:08 am
subsidiaries dealings with iran. >> reporter: that's exactly right, george. i think that's where the questions will be toughest. he was considered a good friend of vladimir putin, rex tillerson, of course, he was in the role of ceo of exxon and i think that's the kind of case he will try to make. it was a very different deal there when he was a businessman. now america's chief diplomat he will be and dealings with iran, as well. there were sanctions in place at the time again i think he'll make the case that he was a businessman then. >> meanwhile, general james mattis defense secretary, kelly homeland security, michael flynn as national security adviser who is outranked by the two generals in the cabinet. >> reporter: this is all very unusual, george but picking generals gives you instant creditability and the american people hold them in high regard despite some of his
7:09 am
rhetoric. he said last month, i like generals. i think they're terrific. they go through schools and sort of end up at the top of the pyramid and pass the test of life. that is true. they have enormous experience and now how to lead and the price of war and have in one way or another stared down the enemy, what will be interesting to watch is how the interaction with the president trump will play out. >> meantime, jon, more pressure building in the congress in the senate to delay this repeal of obamacare. >> this is the big thing for the republican congress. this was to be an agenda item number one, repeal obamacare and spend much of the rest of the year trying to figure out how to replace it. now you have five republican senators signing on to a measure that would say, let's push this vote off for about another month or so until we can figure out what we want to replace obamacare with. this was not the plan for house republicans. what's interesting, this seems to be exactly what president-elect donald trump wants. he wants to be sure there's
7:10 am
we have full-blown repeal. >> see if he gets his way, thanks very much. lots of big events coming up. abc news covers it all and president obama's farewell address at 9:00 eastern and president-elect trump's first press conference tomorrow. check out these pictures of the horrible flooding out west and rob marciano is in the middle of it all in san jose, california. rob, what's going on out there? >> hey, michael. we had about a 12-hour break but now the rain picked up again and river in san jose, one of many creeks and rivers that rise and fall with each one of these water-packed storms that rolls off the pacific. overnight, homes and businesses underwater in sonoma county, california. this building used to house a mini golf and arcade. heavy rains causing the russian river to crest up to 35 feet. >> the last time there was significant floods like this were more than a
7:11 am
>> reporter: at least 3,000 evacuated. >> the water gets in the house. that's about it. >> reporter: up in the hills of guerneville a mudslide 50 feet wide crashing through this man's home. >> right at the edge and holding out until it takes us over. >> reporter: in santa cruz this trapped and injured a photographer from kgo inside his news van. parkly crushing the vehicle. surrounding him with live wires and debris. another slide, this one in and hasn't even rained that much today. rugged terrain and this sandstone which is brittle stuff plus a foot of rain, it's going to come crashing down. in gardena, two women pulled from the surging san gabriel river. and in colorado heavy winds causing dangerous driving conditions. dust and debris blowing across the highway causing near blackout conditions. semi truck after semi truck falling over like dominos.
7:12 am
lifting right off the road. these storms are certainly packing a punch with the wind as well but most concerned about the water now we have two more that are rolling in and ginger zee is tracking all that back in studio. good morning, ginger. >> thank you very much for showing us all that. those storms, the first from the weekend made its way into the midwest and great lakes moving through with winter weather but the storm that's coming in this afternoon and evening, for the west coast is the next one we're most concerned about, the high sierra and wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and flood watches up to half a foot of rain on what has fallen so see the russian river in the heart of sonoma county could go to 37 1/2 feet. mudslide, flooding and right here in the northeast, we're going to warm up so no more skiing on the beach, all right. this is not happening as of the midweek. i'll tell you in just a couple of moments. to a manhunt in florida for the alleged killer of

7:18 am
champions for the first time since 1981. the team rushing the field celebrating with cartwheel, splits and some tears. giving coach dabo swinney a gatorade shower. >> indescribable. i mean, i mean, you can't make it up. i said tonight we're going to win it because we love each other, man, just so thankful and blessed and just doesn't even seem real to me. >> and it goes without saying the clemson tigers so excited. we'll hear from some of the winners plus the surprise star on the field that wasn't even one of the players, guys. >> what are you talking about? what could you be referring to? you were hoping for a penalty because then you could see it. >> what a great game. thank you, jesse and let's go back to ginger. what you got? >> i like that, robin. hold. rrr. so watching that 50-degree line and makes its way up into new

belong at awards shows, that it's liberal hollywood doing what they do, but by engaging it's trump who risks coming across as petty. in 2015 "the hollywood reporter" asked donald trump his favorite actresses he named julia roberts and guess who, meryl streep. >> meryl streep. okay, david wright, thanks very much. joining us larry hackett former editor of "people" magazine and abc news political contributor kristen soltis anderson. larry, let me begin with you. donald trump kind of has a hate/love relationship with hollywood. did seem like this one got to him. >> it did. first of all, i want to say it was riveting television. the idea people don't want to see this kind of thick, i think that's debatable. i don't think people want to hear speeches thanking their agent and family so i think it was great stuff. i think he derives energy from this, right? he knows the entire nation is watching. he engages in debate now. now we're still talking about it. he derives kind of political energy from these kind of things and let me point out, back in june, meryl streep appeared at
7:35 am
fund-raiser for the public theater in new york. not a lot of people wearing it wearing a fat suit and wig about donald trump. i think that is part of the reason -- >> might have remembered that, as well. >> kristen soltis anderson, larry is correct. that the president-elect gets some energy from all this. clearly had that energy yesterday when he was tweeting but digs himself somewhat of a hole when he reminds everybody of that moment where he was mocking "the new york times" reporter. of course, he denies it but gives everybody an opportunity to show the tape again. >> sure, in meryl streep's speech she sort of implies that part of donald trump's appeal was when he does things like insults reporters, mocks other people. i don't think that's why most people voted for donald trump. i think in some cases they voted for him in spite of the fact he had done those things. but certainly donald trump was able to survive the whole campaign with those kind of criticisms coming his way so it's unlikely that meryl streep in her speech to the folks at the golden globes was changing a lot of mights about donald trump. >> i don't think she was trying to change minds but my question is, is donald trump helping himself when he gets up
7:36 am
>> well, he loves a good conflict. he loves fighting against any sort of elite establishment that he feels he hasn't been sufficiently allowed to be a part of, whether that's the media, whether that's hollywood. he -- i agree that he derives a lot of energy and that he's never lost, i think, in picking these sorts of fights because it energizes people that like him and puts him on the side of a debate where most americans tend to not pick the big elite, tend to not pick hollywood or the media. if it's donald trump and football versus meryl streep and hollywood, i think i know which side is probably going to win that argument. >> it's interesting, a paradox. i think by making that streep meryl streep was saying let's not normalize his behavior. trump tweets again and we become inured to the idea he tweets about these things and that normalizes that behavior. >> larry hackett and kristen soltis anderson, thanks so much. michael. >> we have a big board coming up in two major medical headlines. huge debate raging about mammograms and a big, new question about h

but started enrollment in 1980 when the technology from it was not what it is today but talks about the concept does every cancer need treatment and that is going to be a hard pill to swallow for doctors and patients to tell a woman, you have cancer, but we're not going to treat it because it's never going to kill you. that's the dcis realm which is called that stage zero. >> you know, when you talk about treating all cancers, you have to talk about the downside of that, as well. what this study found was that by doing screening, they looked at half the country started screaming and half didn't, the screening program didn't cut down on the number of women who ended up having aggressive breast cancer and the reason that matters is that if a lot of these cancers that are being picked up never would have caused a problem, then you have all of these women who are suffering the side effects of treatment which could be future cancers, which is not a small thing, the side effects of damage of chemotherapy and other things to the body and the goal of
7:41 am
up early and make a difference and save lives. if you're not saving lives then you have to say, what are we doing here in putting all of these women through this treatment. >> there's so much controversy here and i can feel the passion coming from you two. what needs to be done to fick the screening issues? >> i think there's a couple of things. first thing we need better screening tests. you need a screening test that will be able to say to a person we found this lump here. but this one we can tell isn't going to cause any problems and we're not there yet then we have to be able to say, okay, who are the right women to screen at what ages? are there certain things we can tell based on their genetics and family history, you need to screen starting at age 40, you can wait till 50. >> i agree with most of that. the controversy and what gets me hot under the collar is that media and the medical community alike always boils these studies down to one line, mammograms don't work. mammograms are bad. mammograms don't save l
7:42 am
"a," i disagree with that as a woman's health specialist. "b," until we provide an alternative to bash them is tant mount to a war on women. that is what gets me upset. >> i remember where there was a debate about self-exams. hello, that's how i found my lump by self-exam. a mammogram did not detect the tumor. an ultrasound did. it's not one size fits all. >> no. >> i don't see this as a war on women. i think what the goal here is to make sure that women aren't getting overtreated and i think, you know, men are getting overtreated with -- for prostate cancer and there are a lot of women getting overtreated. we need to do more to make it work for them. >> with an alternative. >> we have another medical question for you two even though -- >> bring it on. >> how about this, botox for millennials. there's a new book out called "botox nation" saying younger women are aggressively targeted in hopes they'll be lifetime customers of the botox -- >> rich, don't you think it should start in the delivery
7:43 am
why wait? >> as a pediatrician. >> baby botox. >> it's a strategy and why go after people who don't even have wrinkles. >> it's one word, money. it is about money. it is about changing the perception of what's normal and you're talking -- you know, let's start with women in their 20s so that they won't go on to develop wrinkles. i like my wrinkles. i smile a lot. i get a lot of wrinkles here. i don't want to lose them. when i'm watching an actor on tv i want to know are they happy or are they sad? look at the faces and it's like, i have no clue. >> don't you think we have more pressing problems in medicine than to talk about botox and is someone getting it and are they not getting it? >> do people understand botox, thoughy. >> i think they're judgmental about it. look, anything in moderation, i think could be fine. for example, i'm actually 94 years old but i've had good botox and i think i look remarkably well preserved. i mean, look, i agree with rich. if you can't show facial expression, my kids can't tell i'm cowing at them,
7:44 am
going to be a problem. >> i think it changes the social norm. if who people are seeing on tv, everyone is botoxed then there's pressure that i'm not going to do well in the workplace unless i have botox. for a lot of money it's 300 bucks out of pocket. it's not -- >> male/female double standard too. >> huge, huge. we got to do this again, michael. >> i like this. i'm just, you know -- >> i know. coming up in two minutes we'll hear from that ref, the internet could not get enough of him. that guy right there. please call a penalty. please call a penalty. >> he did curls before the game. >> come on back.
