7:02 am
good morning, america. i was going back between the cmas and the game, but i have to tell you it was a moment. 108 years in the making. ten years, ten innings until almost 1:00 in the morning. total, total team effort. >> i did the same thing as you, back and forth between the two, and the fans of chicago are so excited. there they are outside of wrigley field. i would say they called in sick to work and forgot they had jobs. so they are extremely happy out there. and it was a heartbreaking night for cleveland. >> yeah, too bad for them but they had the cavs this year and chicago has waited so long. take a look at this morning's "chicago tribune cover" "at last." president obama excited for chicago. he is a white sox fan, but he tweeted out in the middle of the night, he couldn't be happier, for the cubs. want to come to the white house before i leave?
7:03 am
>> i know. t.j. holmes was there for the big moments last night and he's joining us now from progressive field in cleveland. have you been to bed yet, t.j.? >> reporter: i have not been to bed in two days, in fact, robin, but who cares? after what we just saw i was in here for every single moment of that game last night and we could not believe what we were witnessing and why would we? we've never seen it before in our lifetimes. the guys with the "cs" on their jerseys and the little bear, they were the ones celebrating a world series victory. guys, they got it. they did it after 108 years of waiting, they actually had to wait a little longer last night. and had to wait through a rain delay, and extra innings and wait through a moment where it looked like that curse was coming for them once again. >> the cubs win the world series. >> reporter: it's finally over. >> makes the play. it's over. >> reporter: no more talk of curses or billy goats or lovable losers. the chicago cubs are world series champions ending their
7:04 am
century-long suffering and sending their city of chicago into an all-out frenzy. the cubs popped open champagne that had been sitting on ice for 108 years after they beat the cleveland indians, 8-7 at progressive field in a heart-stopping game seven that went nearly five hours and included a rain delay and extra innings. >> it is gone. >> reporter: after a leadoff home run, the cubs endured a few missteps, but were able to build pa 5-1 lead thanks to this bombbomb by javy baez. things tightened up after a jon lester pitch and their lights out closer on the mound, this happened. >> to left. at the wall. it's gone! >> reporter: a two-run homer that tied the game and drove cleveland fans like this one wild. >> lebron celebrating. >> reporter: world series mvp, cubs' second baseman, ben
7:05 am
so bris -- zobrist says, at that moment, the curse crept in. >> i got to be honest when they came back in eighth, it was on my mind a little bit. >> reporter: to add to the drama rain in eighth inning. the tarp came out, the players and the fans went in before play resumed 17 minutes later. the teams ended the ninth inning tie, but in the top of the tenth, a zobrist double, and a miguel montero single allows them to score and put up one run in the bottom of the tenth but down to their last out this routine grounder made for a final play on a long, hard journey. >> i cried. i cried like a little kid, you know, it's -- it hasn't been done in a century and some so, you know, to be a part of this is definitely a blessing. >> reporter: the cubs have their first title since 1908, and were playing in their first world series since that goat curse was put on them back in
7:06 am
1985. to come from 3-1 down to win the world series. >> the city of chicago, i love you, thank you. thanks for all the love. we're world champ, baby. yeah. >> reporter: cubs superfan, bill murray, got in on the celebration. emotional in the stands. honking a horn on the feel and enjoy the champagne in the locker room. it was very interesting to watch the chicago cubs fans, guys. many of them young, of course, so to watch a 30-year-old vent 108 years of frustration was very interesting to see. but they let it all out here last night and certainly the contrast to the indians fans who had been waiting for 68 years have to wait at least 69 now since their drought is going to continue, but i heard someone put it best. it was the "chicago sun-times," this wasn't the best thing since sliced bread, it's the best thing since 20 years before sliced bread with the cubs winning this thing. >> let's go see what it looks like in chicago right now. they were in the streets all night long, and the bars were
7:07 am
were full late at night, and did not close last night. the parties have been going on through the night. alex perez is there. >> we won! we win! >> reporter: hey, george, good morning. i don't know if you can hear me. i'm assuming you can. some of these fans have been here through the night. wrigley field like we've never seen it before. [ cheers and applause ] they've been here all night. the team expected to arrive here at wrigley field in just a short time. now, this city went crazy the moment the cubs won in cleveland last night. fans by the thousands took to the streets and they were doing everything they can to celebrate. hanging out of their cars, honking their horns, doing whatever they can to savor this moment that's been 108 years in the making. i want to show you this. check this out. this fresh off the presses. check this out. the brand-new championship shirts, and of course, there you go. look at the hat. there you go, the championship hat. there you go. they're ready to celebrate here. michael and robin, back to you.
7:08 am
>> looks like a lot of fun. i'm kind of jealous of you right now, alex. thank you. joining us from cleveland espn's jessica mendoza and, jessica, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. are you kidding me? it's crazy what has happened in the last 24 hours. >> you were there. you were there in the middle of it all last night, the rain delays, extra innings, all the drama that you only read about in a game seven of a book. and how was it for you to be there last night in person to witness history? >> reporter: you know, honestly to have the entire season, and we had the cubs on espn more than any other team. so kind of walking through the process of, you know, just -- the pressure. they were the best team in baseball. you think of all the teams, games they had won and again in in the postseason, you see them down, 3-1, and talking to the guys, feeling the stress. but all of a sudden, got into the game last night and there was something magical about the entire game.
7:09 am
first of all, the unexpected, right? andrew miller and aroldis chapman get hit, we have javier baez, the defensive specialist the entire season. he had a couple of errors. rajai davis for the indians ties it up with a two-run home run. this guy wasn't even in the starting lineup a couple of nights ago. who would have thought it would be carl edwards jr. and mike montgomery to close out the game for the cubs? so you think about not only the emotion, but also the way both of these teams had the unexpected guys come up in a huge way. >> it was a true team effort all the way around, can it was magical indeed. you know, the cubs jump out to that big lead and eighth inning it gets all tied up. what was the key moment do you think in the game last night? >> reporter: ben zobrist. and honestly, ben combined with kyle schwarber and when you think, robin, about just the story of kyle schwarber. are you kidding me? >> yeah. >> reporter: the guy hasn't played since april. we talked about it. he had three hits last night and i know zobrist got the big hit. that was the turning point obviously and you saw the
7:10 am
emotion from a guy by the way that won a world series last year with the royals, huge off-season acquisition to get zobrist and have him on the team but kyle schwarber, robin, i played the game, i can't emphasize enough this guy did not see a live pitch for 5 1/2 months. and his first game was in the world series. and for him to get seven hits in just four games and to be able to get the rally starter in that huge, huge inning to take the lead in the tenth, i mean, i can't emphasize enough both schwarber and zobrist. >> amazing, remarkable. get some sleep there, jessica. thanks so much for joining us. we're going to have more from chicago and cleveland and our friends from espn in our next half hour. >> that is coming up. we'll move on to the race for the white house just five days to go. both campaigns planned all the stops. melania trump has her first solo stop in pennsylvania. president obama pushing hard for hillary in florida. our tom llamas is on the scene in miami. good morning, tom. morning.
7:11 am
to give you an idea of how tight this race is, both campaigns both ran three campaign ads during that world series, and the only thing comparable to the big money on both sides, the big effort to get out the vote. overnight, in the florida panhandle, donald trump jubilant with five days to go. fireworks, and trump even revealing his strategy for the final stretch in what sounded like an inner monologue. >> it's feeling like it already, isn't it? just -- we have got to be nice and cool. nice and cool. right? stay on point, donald. stay on point. [ laughter ] no sidetracks, donald. nice and easy. >> reporter: trump also out with new instructions for his supporters. >> okay. ready? we're going to pretend we're down. pretend we're down. pretend. right? we'll pretend we're down. now we got to win. we got to win big and we got to beat her. >> reporter: hillary clinton out west making her pitch for undecided voters.
7:12 am
>> imagine with me what it would be like to have donald trump sitting in the oval office come next january. [ crowd boos ] >> hell no! >> someone who demeans women, mocks the disabled, insults latinos and african-americans. >> reporter: both campaigns bringing out the battleground big guns for the final days. for team clinton, former president, bill clinton in nevada. chelsea clinton in wisconsin. bernie sanders in north carolina and ohio and president obama in florida. in north carolina, the president issued a stern message to black voters. >> if you don't vote, then you've done the work of those who would suppress your vote. >> reporter: for team trump it's a family affair. >> he's going to do well here because he wants to infuse common sense back into the equation. >> reporter: today don jr. in pennsylvania. ivanka in michigan and new hampshire. eric trump in wisconsin, his wife, lara trump, in ohio, and
7:13 am
melania trump's first speech of the general election campaign, just hours away in pennsylvania. sources tell abc news that melania's speech will be a very personal one. talking about her family and journey to america. and of course, her husband. her goal is to show more of donald trump's heart. george? >> okay, tom, thanks very much. all hands on deck, and all kinds of information pouring in about where the vote stands in these final days. our poll has a two-point lead for hillary clinton right now. you see it right there, 47/45. cbs has a three-point lead for hillary clinton. lots to sort through and we'll do that with jon karl and you look at the states, and there's contradictory information coming in from some places especially that small state of nevada. >> this is a state that looked like it was trending for hillary clinton. but we have a new poll out in nevada that looks like a donald trump lead and a pretty significant one, six points, but, george, remember, in nevada a half a million people have already voted, and if you look at have the voting is done, who
7:14 am
has voted, democrats have a significant advantage over republicans in terms of who is actually -- >> tracking almost exactly where they were in 2012 when president obama won that state by six points. real focus right now on these key states of north carolina and florida. we saw president obama there yesterday because the democrats know if they can take either one of these from donald trump, they win. >> we've had a slew of polls there, two new ones. first if you take a look down in florida, you have a slight hillary clinton lead, but this is within the margin of error, george. this is a statistical tie, north carolina, north carolina, but the same thing you see in florida, again, 46-45. that is statistically tied, and those states look like true tossups there. >> they'll go down to the wire. a lot of early voting there and in the meantime, donald trump trying to get blue states looking at michigan and wisconsin, pennsylvania. i hear he's going to be in new hampshire today. >> yeah. it's unbelievable. if you look at it, he got some news that was good for him in terms of those blue states, solidly blue states. pennsylvania is one republicans haven't carried since the 1980s and hillary clinton's had a lead
7:15 am
but look at this, 48/44. that is statistically tied. similar result in wisconsin. slightly outside the margin of error, but very close for comfort if you are a democrat. >> see if he can take one of those bricks out of the wall. thank you so much, jon karl. matt dowd here and we're coming out of the home stretch and have had races in the past where the race breaks decisively one way or the other in those final days. expect it to happen this year? >> i don't expect it to happen. because if you take a look at the last eight months, there's a solid level of support for hillary clinton, and a solid level of support for donald trump, and we have been trading narrow bounds. two to seven points over the course of this. the one thing we don't know is what happened last week with the comey announcement was something could happen. it's happened before in previous elections. i was involved in an election where it broke the same day 16 years ago. today. so anything could happen in that regard. >> see if big news comes out. at the same time, we have both campaigns focused more than anything else on mobilizing their core voters and organizations. edge for the democrats here. >> yeah, they have a better organization.
7:16 am
much better organization in this and we've seen it show up in the early voting in this, but the interesting thing to me as we take a look at the huge world series win from the cubs last night, both candidates have an argument to make from it interestingly enough. donald trump could make the argument he had the same odds that the chicago cubs did of coming back in that series. he can make that argument and says i'll do that and hillary clinton can make the argument she could end the longest drought in political history. >> in the meantime, president obama running like it's his campaign. >> absolutely, and he is so strategic going right at african-american voters and young voters at the university of north carolina. he is trying to re-energize the coalition that elected him twice. >> they've been lagging so far. jon karl, and matt dowd. thank you so much. five days until the final votes and we'll be right here when the polls close tuesday night. i'll be anchoring news all night starting at 7:00 eastern. now to amy with the other top stories. you have some breaking news from afghanistan overnight. >> we do, george. thank you. two u.s. service members have been killed fighting taliban forces in northern
7:17 am
afghanistan's kunduz province. two other americans were wounded. military officials say they were assisting local troops when they came under fire. and a new message from the leader of isis after months of silence. in an audio recording abu bakr al baghdadi urges his followers to decimate iraqi forces who are now closing in on the isis stronghold of mosul. u.s. military analysts believe al baghdadi may be holed up in that city. and a protest outside a senate debate in louisiana started after form kkk leader, david duke, entered an event at dillard university. police used pepper spray and tasers. tried to push their way into the debate hall. to to six people were arrested. well, facebook is reporting a staggering profit. the company made $2.3 billion in just the last three months. but its stock fell overnight because of concern about future growth. finally if you get annoyed by other drivers overusing their high beams and blinding you on the road at night, you're going to love this.
7:18 am
apparently it's a huge problem in china, so they are giving out tickets, and then, look at this. they are forcing offenders to sit and stare in their high beams for 60 seconds. some people are calling it a bright idea, but i must say -- you get that? there has been mixed reactions online. some say it's a human rights violation. some say, am i the only one that thought a minute was too short? >> they're not the ones staring into that light. that's why they -- >> it will teach you. >> thank you, amy. to ginger with weather. the record high wasn't just the history being made in baseball, but history made. cleveland went to 78, a record daily high temperature. all to have those high temperatures that were across the nation this week, and you know it's going to end. i'll have more coming up. i asked michael earlier. why don't they do dances in baseball? chicago should just do a little shimmy. right? your local weather brought to you in 30 seconds, but your warm weather brought to you by macy's.

course, we witnessed something we have never seen before or thought we would see. the chicago cubs were in charge from the start, and they led the way until the eighth inning, where they were up go, and the indians tie this thing up, and every fan in here was thinking, curse. it felt like a cubs' game to be honest with you because they had so many fans and they were loud, but there was a hush in this crowd, and they got nervous. you know a lot of names and a lot are responsible for winning this thing. a lot of them you might not know, one that is theo epstein. he was with the red sox in 2004 and broke their curse. now he is head of operations here for the cubs, and broke their curse. listen to him now after the game. >> what makes a great organization is a thousand
7:33 am
little sacrifices that people make when no one is looking and that's been happening here for at least five years and probably longer, but i've gotten the privilege to see it for five years and that's what makes it so rewarding to see this happen tonight and just the effect on so many people, and generations. bringing families together, thinking of people who couldn't make it, thinking of ernie, and ronnie, billy williams. celebrating with us and the '69 team, you know, the '84 team, the 2003 team, all these teams that were great and could have gotten it done but just didn't have the bounces on their side. well, now we got it done and now everyone is going to sleep happy tonight. >> reporter: so theo epstein, they are calling him the exorci exorcist. keep this in mind. it was such a feat for them to do. it was a big deal after 108 years but keep in mind they were the best team in baseball this year. won more games than anybody, 103. they have a young roster and they are good and will be good for years to come so look out. >> uh-huh. we certainly will. all right, t.j., thanks very much. and as theo was saying about people are going to sleep well

7:35 am
targeted just blocks from each other, and the shootings just 20 minutes apart. both sitting in their patrol car, dozens of bullet holes left behind. investigators say the man who attacked them, 46-year-old scott michael greene has a history of racially charged behavior and prior confrontations with police. >> he's just somebody that was known to law enforcement. >> reporter: just hours before the rampage, greene was in court for abusing his mother by physically hitting and financially exploiting her. the court ordering him to move out of her home and pay her back $10,000. and authorities this morning investigating this video they say greene posted on youtube two weeks ago filmed near where the first ambush took place. police kicking him out of a high school football game after complaints he was flying a confederate flag in the stands. >> when you fly a confederate flag standing in front of several african-american people, that's going to cause a disturbance. i'm not saying -- i never said it wasn't your right. >> that's my constitutional right.
7:36 am
>> reporter: greene has not been charged yet. this is the first time in about 40 years that an officer has been killed in the line of duty in des moines. the first time ever here in urbandale, george. >> okay, eva, thanks very much. over to michael. thank you, george. coming up on our big board. what can we expect from melania's big speech today? we'll talk about that and a $43 million mistake. the woman who thought she scored a giant jackpot, but got a steak dinner instead. why didn't the casino pay out? we're back in two minutes to talk about that.

it's time for the big board. our team of insiders are standing by live for more on today's stop stories. sunny hostin here at the table, and we'll be back with you in a bit. heartbreaking story that you'll have. we'll begin with the campaign home stretch first for melania trump going solo on the campaign trail in pennsylvania. this is her first speech since the convention. cokie roberts here to talk about that. and cokie, melania caught flak after the convention. of course, had passages from michelle obama's speech and she seemed pretty startled in my interview last week when donald trump said she would be doing this, but it's all hands on deck now. >> it is and she's going to the philadelphia suburbs where republican women have been peeling away from donald trump and this is an attempt to get them back, but there are surrogates all over the place.
7:40 am
hillary clinton's husband, bill clinton, has been out there, and one of his successors, barack obama, very effective on the trail. but probably the most effective, his wife, michelle obama, so husbands and wives all over the place. >> cokie, we see donald trump jr. is out there. ivanka trump, chelsea clinton all out there hitting the road. have you ever seen kids so active in the surrogate role? >> mitt romney's sons were very active and the truth is, michael, whenever they're old enough to be active they're out there. when they're little kids like chelsea clinton was and the obama kids were, they are not there, but the big problem donald trump has is he doesn't have anybody else really. he doesn't have any big name republicans to campaign for him. so his kids are the best surrogates he's got but they speak well for him. >> people like speaker paul ryan campaigning for members of congress, but not campaigning for donald trump. >> right. >> all right. >> well, thank you, cokie. we appreciate that.

up next, can any of us here imagine you walk into a casino, you win a $43 million lottery jackpot, then you have it taken away from you? well, that's what happened to a queens, new york, woman, the casino said the slot machine malfunctioned and, sunny, please help us understand this. this is not the first case like this, though. >> no, it's not the first time a dollar and dream turned into a dollar and a nightmare for so many people. i mean if you think about it, this woman, she thinks she won $43 million and then she gets the ticket printed out -- it's really $2.25. >> the screen said one thing, the ticket says another. >> in denver, same thing happened. you've got a $42 million screen, a $20.18 little ticket and then in washington state, you have an $8.5 million screen, and then you get 80 bucks. so it happens often. you know what they have in common? display malfunction. >> so she seems pretty upset. talking about maybe suing. does she have any legal recourse?
7:42 am
>> she doesn't. if you go to the casinos and look at the bottom they've been lawyered up. all these disclaimers, one says malfunction of the machine voids all pays and plays so there's a lot of precedent that you just don't get the money. you get maybe a free steak dinner, maybe it's if i filet mignon. maybe it's a porterhouse. >> they could have done better than a steak dinner. >> she was buying dream cars and vacation homes in her mind but she's only going to get a steak dinner. >> can she bring somebody or is it a one-person steak dinner? >> i think it's a one-person steak dinner? >> i'm curious. that's a shame. if any of us, cokie, if you -- if this happened to you, what would you do? >> i guess i'd try to make a deal. i'd say to the guy behind the cage, you know, come on now, can't we split the difference here? >> that's not bad. >> try to work it out. >> sunny? >> i'm suing.
7:43 am
i'm not going to win, but i'm going to sue because it will make me feel better. >> you say you don't have a case. >> but i'm going to sue and i'm going to try to get at least i think the amount that the jackpot is capped at because in the queens case the jackpot is capped at $6,500. so why not get $6,500? >> you are smarter than that. you know it's going to cost you all this money to sue and you won't win a penny. >> i can sue for free. i can sue for free. i can represent myself, exactly. >> what about you? >> i always spend the lottery tickets in my head but i don't know if i'd sit in front of a slot machine anyway so that's a tougher part. >> i thought about this, and i said, after i called my boss and apologized for what i said to him when i thought i won, got my job back, and i just get up and go to work. and keep it moving. unfortunate for that poor lady there. thank you, sunny, thank you for sitting with us. appreciate it and cokie, thank

i've never liked marijuana. but i'm voting yes on prop 64 to legalize marijuana for adults 21 and over. it has important safeguards for families, like strict product labeling and child-proof packaging of all marijuana products. and banning edibles that would appeal to a child. raising a teenager, that regulated system makes a lot more sense than what we have now. plus, 64 taxes marijuana to fund priorities like after-school programs. personally,
8:43 am
marijuana's not for me. but my mind's made up. i'm voting yes on 64. back here on "gma." all you zap scandal fan, gladiators, we have the exclusive world premiere trailer for the upcoming season. >> thursday, january 19th, you've waited long enough. >> this is it. turn up the tv. >> "scandal" is back.

"braveheart," "passion." he was able to accomplish so much and put himself in harm's way for his brothers in a.r.m.s, so it's just an amazing story. i couldn't even believe it when it came across my desk and the drill sergeant, your job to bring them together as a unit and his choice is bring some particular challenges to that so it was really on the page to have a lot of the humor and stuff and then as well as a lot of the drama and things that play out as well. >> mell was here earlier and spoke so highly of you but working with mel gibson, anything you learned from that
8:47 am
experience. >> so much. i mean, he's such a master storyteller. when you see the film and you see all of his films, there's some really -- the love story with teresa palmer is incredible. such a great, innocent love. you kind of feel in a visceral in that relationship and that juxtaposes when you go to war. that some of the most realistic battle scenes i've seen in a movie. it's just unbelievable the way that he's able to with performance and camera and just everything put together a movie that on all cylinders really fires. >> the movie is more than just a movie about war and battles. like you said it's a love story as well and whenever you're on a set with a serious movie ike that there has to be some kind of -- something to relieve probably some of the stress of that. i hear mel is a legendary trafficster. >> he is. >> did he do anythingy. >> me and myself and mel and andrew garfield who is also incredible in the movie as desmond doss would hang out and on halloween, we went out on halloween and i bought some silly masks for kind of fun and
8:48 am
mel had this done by a professional makeup -- looks like a real person. he looked a little like nick nolte. looked like a nick nolte mask so he wore that but it didn't look like he had a mask on so we went to a restaurant and somebody would be talking, oh, i'm talking to a gentleman who looks slightly like nick nolte until he would grab and peel his face off and underneath obviously was mel and people's reactions were so shocked that someone was taking their face off and it was mel gibson so has a great sense of humor. a lot of fun to be around. >> you know what, we mentioned your big cubs fan and saw you singing "take me out to the ball game." great voice. you carried it. what did you do last night? you weren't at the game. >> i wasn't so i watched it with luke brace cia from the movie and we all watched it together. it was unbelievable. you couldn't ask for a more dramatic game. you said you ended up staying later than you thought.
