hollywood's biggest show. the indy spirit awards could hold clues to tonight's event. "gma" sitting down with jimmy kimmel. his plans for the big night. >> maybe black paint applied to my head so people can't see my bald spot. >> from the fashion to the politics. all those redos. it's just hours away. >> live from abc news in new york. this "good morning america." >> you're right. >> debating movies. >> we're arguing about who is going to win tonight. >> happy oscar sunday. ace white house correspondent cecilia vega here with us on set this morning. >> good morning. >> she's here in large measure because paula faris is in hollywood on the red carpet at the dolby theater looking beautiful as always. >> we were debating your dress choice. you won. excellent choice. >> did you like this one? are you guys already bickering?
that's not a good sign. all in good fun. i didn't get the memo. it's still cold in l.a. it's only 10 degrees above freezing. i'm glad you like the dress, cecelia. there's this really consequential award show. some are calling this the oscars of our generation which adds to the level of pressure on jimmy kimmel who is hosting for the second straight year. i sat down with kimmel to see how he's going to strike the right tone and if he's going to get political. the stars were out at the independent spirit awards. cecelia, dan, ron and adrienne why are we interested? they're almost always a solid predictor. of what's going to happen oscar sunday. i'll see you guys in a little bit. can't wait to talk to you a little bit more. >> we'll be talking to you a lot this morning. you look gorgeous. much more from hollywood coming up. >> you look gorgeous too. >> thank you. love fest on "gma." >> bickering to love fest. >> we want to turn to our top story president trump drawing some laughs not to mention
raising a few eyebrows on everything from jared kushner to north korea. >> in a time of chaos in the white house even by trump's standards, the president tried a new tactic telling jokes in members of a group he loves to vilify. the news media. david wright has more. good morning. >> good morning dan and cecelia. think of this as donald in the li lion's den. the president and first lady dining with the people he said are fake news. jared kushner and ivanka trump were there too. for more than 100 years the gridiron dinner has been a right of passage for every president except for grover cleveland. last night it was trump. >> reporter: dressed in white tie and tails, president trump showed up for an evening of humor mostly at his own expense at the gridiron dinner. it was closed to cameras. he joked about himself, his rivals and the media. saying it was the most fun he's
had with them since watching their faces on election night. he took some swipes at some of his enemies saying he knows how to deal with a mad man like kim jong-un saying that's his problem, not mine. he called house democratic nancy pelosi crazy and said former vice president joe biden should not run for president because he says such outrageous things. trump pointedly said he offered to give jeff sessions a ride to the dinner, but sessions recused himself. earlier in the day trump auditioned some material at a mar-a-lago fund raiser. trump joked about china's president. he's now president for life trump said. maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day. last night trump made it back to the white house to catch the cold open of "snl." alec, baldwin again. >> i said i was going to run this country like a business. that business is a waffle house at 2:00 a.m. crazies everywhere. staff walking out in the middle
of their shift. managers taking money out of the cash register to pay off the russian mob. >> reporter: all this on the day the president escalated talk of a possible trade war. last week after trump threatened new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports canada and the european union threatened to retaliate. trump tweeted if the eu raises their tariffs, he'll slap a hefty tax on european cars. by all accounts, trump's trip to the gridiron was a success. the president showing some good humor. he apologized for being late joking that kushner had a tough time getting through security. >> i thought that was a good joke. >> i don't think jared liked it. >> he was right there too. david "the new york times" reported a new development in special counselor mueller's investigation. kushner could be facing some heat there. >> that's right. kushner's business ties are under scrutiny. mueller is talking with a lebanese business man who made
several trips to the white house. ahead of president trump's trip to the middle east. it's a sign the mueller probe may be expanding to look at influence peddling overseas. >> let's bring in george stephanopoulos who will be hosting "this week." >> good morning, guys. >> i want to go back to the trade war that president trump seems to be escalating talk of a trade war. >> it seems to have already started. >> there are people in his own party and his own administration who think this is a terrible idea. this week he has to make a decision. and roll out the tariffs if he's going to do it. do we think he's going to do it? >> the president surprised his own team. gary cohn is against it. steve mnuchin is against it. steve mnuchin is against it. the congressional leaders, paul ryan, speaker of the house and mitch mcconnell the leader in the senate are all against it. they are lobbying the president furiously to modify this announcement. before it formally made this week. you'll see a lot of pressure
from our allies in europe. the president doesn't appear to be baking down. this is the million dollar question. is he going to go forward this week? will he modify it at all? we'll be asking wilbur ross this morning. >> people in his own administration didn't know. >> ross is for it. >> definitely. >> given the turmoil and the craziness of the news, nra and guns seem like a long time ago. >> only wednesday. >> this was a huge headline. in that meeting at the white house, the president seemed to side with the democrats. then he brought the nra in and kind of did a flip flop. where does he stand? >> the president sided with the democrats. he said give me a comprehensive gun control bill that includes universal background checks. he talked about raising the minimum age for gun purchases. then he meets behind closed doors with the nra. they come out tweeting no new gun control. unless the president is behind
this for a comprehensive plan, it's not going to happen. the chances of anything major getting through now has diminished significantly. now you never know if the president will change again. right now it looks like nothing is going to happen, nothing significant at least. >> we talked about the chaos in the west wing. look at the "washington post." pure madness dark days in the white house when trump shocks and rages. is there a sense when trump feels besieged and isolated, when he's like this, it impacts policy? >> of course it does. you saw it on guns and trade. a lot of reports from inside the white house that actually the reason he decided to go forward with this trade announcement was to show everybody i'm in charge after all these questions about what's going on. no question about that. that pure madness quote comes from a trump ally. this is what's happening right now. what you're seeing in the "washington post" story every
single day a lot of people inside the white house worried the president is isolated. worried he's on his own right now with cascading consequences. >> love our sunday mornings with george. thank you very much. >> thanks guys. >> big show this morning. former chief of staff reince preibus and chris christie will weigh in on the week in the white house. >> and democratic senator chris murphy, debates and the power house round table. obviously. >> you're there too. >> yeah. >> not power house unless vega is on. thank you, george. >> see you guys. we'll move on to the massive clean up after the nor'easter. flooded homes downed power lines and made a mess on the roads and at the airport. >> eva pilgrim has more on the clean up and ongoing travel mess. >> reporter: this morning millions of americans in the northeast waking up to catastrophic scenes like this. >> the wind was scary.
>> reporter: major cities stretching from maryland to maine trees split in half, roads collapsed, power lines out. leaving more than a million in the dark. >> it was so devastating. >> reporter: the massive nor'easter turning deadly killing at least eight. all by falling trees. outside boston this tree slamming through a car's windshield and those gusting winds completely uprooting trees in washington, d.c. look at this scene in massachusetts. the tides rising extremely high. those wind gusts causing major flooding. drivers pushing through. others forced to flee their homes. >> i was trying to get out before it's too late. >> i've never seen it this bad. >> reporter: the biggest concern right now for officials -- >> the whole cleanup aspect is troubling. >> reporter: a major push to get piles of debris off the roads. officials deploying the national guard to assist. >> the roads have been slippery. >> reporter: this as the roads, rails and runways desperately try to bounce back.
this morning amtrak announcing it will run most of its full regular schedule. this morning flights appear to be getting back to normal as well. just in time for that next nor'easter heading this way. airlines telling abc news they are already monitoring that storm. guys. >> eva, thank you. sam and i will be braving the travel mess today. we want to start with ron and the headlines. >> good morning to you. >> still working on those headlines. >> right up to the minute. >> you looked surprised. >> i was ready. >> good morning, dan and adrienne and everyone. we'll begin in florida with a surprise reversal in the state in a special saturday session to deal with gun control legislation. law makers agree in a voice vote for a two-year ban on the sale of ar-15 assault rifles, but minutes later in a roll call
vote it was defeated 20-17. the legislation includes school safety proposals and raising the legal age to buy guns goes to a vote on monday. in michigan the undergrad charged with shooting his parents to death when they came to take him home for spring break. investigators says james eric davis used his father's gun. his father was an illinois police officer but it's unclear if the gun that was used was his service weapon. in west virginia teachers are saying no money, no school. they're refusing to return to work for an eighth day. causing all public schools in the state to be closed. some 20,000 remaining on strike after the senate voted to reduce a proposed 5% pay hike that the teacher's union negotiated with the governor of that state. actor david ogden stiers has died. known for his work on the tv series "mash." he played major charles winchester iii.
he voice animated cogsworth the clock in beauty and the beast. he was 75 years of age. in england "the times" said meghan markle will be baptized before her wedding to prince harry in may. it's not required, but the paper said markle is converting out of respect for the queen. queen elizabeth is the head of the church of england. it's the first time her father will meet prince harry. >> not someone you want to have on your bad side. >> that's a deep moment. >> yes. finally in upstate new york a wild win in high school championship basketball game. check this out. the panthers down by 2 points to the dutchman. check this out. he throws it 70 feet. >> come on. >> steals the ball and makes that shot. they win 52-51.
take the division championship. check this out. that guy who made the winning shot about 75, 80 feet he missed two free throws. >> what? >> with four seconds left in the game. >> hail mary. >> he redeemed himself. everybody is happy. >> i'm flashing forward to every argument he has with his wife for the rest of his life. that shot i made. >> 50 years ago. >> he made history. >> that's amazing. >> it will fade with time. there will be ups and downs. >> let's not talk about the down. let's talk about that shot from 75 feet. >> something else amazing here the rescue of a snow boarder buried alive in a california avalanche. >> this man is lucky to be alive. he's talking about what it was like to see an eight-foot wall of snow heading for him. sam champion, tell us more. >> reporter: this morning the man buried alive by this terrifying avalanche speaks out.
>> i feel incredibly lucky. super stoked to be alive. >> reporter: evan huck at the squaw valley ski resort. >> i heard somebody yell and looked back and saw an eight-foot wall of snow. >> my husband is missing. >> we started to hear a woman scream for her husband. that's when your heart starts racing. >> just keep digging around him. >> reporter: covered in six minutes over 100 rescuers miraculously freeing the snow boarder without injury. just one day later a second avalanche partially burying people at mammoth mountain with no injuries report. closing the resort until sunday. >> one guy was buried to his chest area. that was completely before the avalanche. the snow was very deep. >> reporter: rescue crews searching for six hours. to free everyone. a scary reminder about the
dangers of mountain sports. most avalanche happens after a fresh hit of snow. that's what we saw. we got about five feet of snow in a couple days. still a lot of avalanche condition. i'll tell you the one thing i remember, the equipment buy it. if it's a beacon and you're going skiing. they have beacons that can find you. do that. when you find yourself falling, try to bring your hands up to your face. when you're buried in snow that allows you to beat the snow away from your face and allows you to create a little air pocket and eventually start to give way so you can dig yourself out of the snow if you're lucky. trying to fall with your hands like this is a survival tactic. let's look at the next system. we have fire alerts. i'm concerned about the amount of weather we have to cover here. look at this from new mexico to texas all the way to nebraska. watch this move into the middle of the country. that's snow for the northern parts of midwest and heavy rains for the parts flooding. the mississippi river valley and ohio river valley, more rain.
you don't need it. that low creates this towards minneapolis and duluth. then we'll call it a nor'easter as it exits the east coast on wednesday. we have a lot to talk about. >> in the next half hour w >> in the next half hour we'll cover what will probably be a nor'easter on wednesday. we'll give you all the full details. >> yesterday you were smiling that we were having a nor'easter and you were heading to miami. >> he's leaving.
>> he's smiling. >> how did this happen? >> the germans have a word for it. take pleasure in other people's suffering. we'll talk more about that in the next half hour. some, we love you. >> more german lessons. the oscars are just a few hours away. this is why cecelia wore green today. >> i forgot it was oscar sunday. >> lime green. >> host jimmy kimmel will be talking about a lot of stuff. we all want to know what that may be. >> paula, save us. >> save me. >> i'm just going to ask you to save us, paula. >> i'll save you guys. jimmy kimmel has his work cut out for him. i don't think anybody has a tougher job than him trying to navigate through a tricky political landscape as well as me too and times up. when it comes to me too and times up, i wouldn't expect kimmel to go there. that will most likely be addressed by ashley judd. and salma hayek.
two of the harvey weinstein accusers. they are presenting. as for getting political, take a look at what kimmel says. >> reporter: the finishing touches in gold. the red carpet rolled out. hollywood's biggest night just hours away. jimmy kimmel is taking on hosting duties for the second year in a row with the current political climate along with the me too and times up movement, it will be a balancing act for the comic. >> are you nervous at all you'll strike the right tone? >> i do worry about that. i have a tendency to not strike the right tone in my life. so, you know, i think about that. >> you got very political over the last year. is it safe to say you'll get political at the oscars? >> i don't know if i will. i look at it like this, if i feel like i have something that hasn't been said or i can deliver more effectively, than someone else, i will say it. >> what do you say to your
critics that say who are you to speak out on these issues? >> i'm an american. that's who i am. it's interesting. people are going with this line of reasoning where they say people in show business shouldn't speak out about politics and, yet, they elected donald trump the president of the united states. i think that argument is pretty well jumped out the window. >> after months of preparing and kimmel is ready, admitting last year he didn't even get nervous. what are you going to be doing? >> i'll probably have a group of people -- i bet my parents will come by, my kids will stop by to wish me well. i'll probably be looking at my script.heo le't alot >> i didn't even know you had one. >> that's because i'm painted.

>> for some people it's not what you want in the middle of the week. let's walk you through the next storm. the next nor'easter on the east coast works. tomorrow we have the big snow maker in the northern plains and heavy rain down the middle of the country. the mississippi river. those two lows move east and then hand off their energy to a coastal low off the delmarva peninsula. where that goes is everything. how close it is to the coast, how far away it moves, it's whether we get snow or rain. right now the forecast models saying it's a significant plowable kind of snow. here's the difference between this low and remember friday's low. this one is weaker. it's faster, but it's colder. what this means is not as much coastal flooding, not as much wind damage. although there's wind there. this will move. it will cause a little bit of both of those things. big mix of snow and rain. bi
