7:01 am
d.c. this morning. security ramped up as demonstrators descend on the nation's capitol, just steps from the white house. under fire, one of the nation's biggest college football programs facing scrutiny after the death of a player. top staff members put on leave. the disturbing new allegations. and acing it. the player at the pga championship scoring a hole in one, and what he did next with the ball that has everyone talking. good sunday morning, everyone. dan is off. so happy to have whit johnson. you did a remarkable job anchoring last night. >> thank you. great to be back. >> great to have adrienne bankert by my side once again. >> wonderful to be here. >> i thought i was looking at whit johnson, the golf course, that hole in one at the pga championship. >> one time. >> do you golf?
7:02 am
>> in mini golf, mini golf. >> okay, that's a different game. >> went right through the clown mouth. >> we're still going to give you points though. >> okay, thank you. >> we want to give tiger woods some points. he's just four strokes back at the pga championship, in contention to win his first major in ten years. analysts are saying it feels like he's getting closer and closer. a lot of eyes on today's final round. >> he's been through so much, a lot of people cheering him on. we'll have more on that coming up. first though, severe weather hammering the northeast. it's never a good time for a storm but the timing couldn't be worse for this bride who had to be rescued from her car. >> man, but the flooding also caused some material damage. take a look at these cars in little falls, new jersey. they floated away from a car dealership. ouch. after heading down a river. >> it's like bumper cars. in the west thousands of people are without power from dust storms, and there are even more storms on the way so let's go to rob who's tracking it all on this very busy sunday. rob, good morning. >> hey, good morning, paula. yesterday morning across new york city it looked like midnight.
7:03 am
look at this time lapse as the clouds were rolling in, it went black, heavy storms, several rounds happening yesterday. look at some of these numbers for rainfall totals and record amount in central park, nearly three inches, over four inches in caldwell. long island seeing over four inches of rainfall as well. some of these areas seeing about half a foot of rain, above average so far this year, so in many cases it didn't take much to flood. >> reporter: overnight, a dramatic washout caught on camera as flash floods wreak havoc on parts of the northeast. >> oh, my god, those cars are completely underwater. >> reporter: in new jersey bystanders in shock, capturing the moment dozens of cars from this dealership float away, crashing into each other as they're pushed by rushing waters. strong storms slamming the region, this house going up in flames after being struck by lightning. this wall collapsing, displacing dozens of residents. and watch as police rescue this bride and her wedding party stuck in rising floodwaters. in new york, the storm rolling in, flooding this highway.
7:04 am
and more bad weather in the west. in las vegas overnight, heavy rain, wind and a dust storm warning causing thousands of power outages. this baseball game interrupted as the dust pours over the center field fence. players and onlookers quickly running for cover. a little bit dryer weather heading into the southwest. a little bit drier weather right now across the northeast. you see the heaviest rains offshore. we still have a flash flood watch out for parts of southern new england, coastal flood advisories for on-shore flow today. most of the action will be across the mid-atlantic with some sporadic storms during the day today. tomorrow it becomes more widespread so another round tomorrow and into tuesday. could see up to three inches or more additional rain over again, very saturated ground. we'll talk more about the southwest in just a moment. >> rob, thank you. now to new details about the airline employee who stole a plane from seattle tacoma airport and performed some high-flying stunts before dying in a fiery crash. >> he's been identified as
7:05 am
29-year-old richard russell. officials say he did not have a pilots a license, but he did have clearance to be in a secure area of the airport. the fbi leading the investigation and abc's clayton sandell is in seattle with what we're learning this morning. clayton, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, adrienne. good morning, paula. that's right, the fbi is in charge here this morning. agents will be taking a deep dive into this rogue pilot's background and motives trying to figure out how a member of the ground crew was able to pull this off. this morning, we're learning more about that rogue pilot and his joyride in a stolen airliner. >> oh, my god, oh, my god. is he okay? >> reporter: his alarming arrow aerobattics in an empty turbo prop. >> alaska airlines q-400, what the [bleep] is he doing over here? >> reporter: at the controls, 29-year-old horizon airlines employee richard russell, a member of the airline's ground crew, pursued by fighter jets ready to shoot him down as controllers try talking him
7:06 am
down. >> all right, rich, now let's turn and land that airplane safely and not hurt anybody on the ground. >> i don't know, man, i don't know! i don't want to. i was kind of hoping that was going to be it. >> reporter: the flight ended in a fiery crash. authorities say russell passed multiple background checks to work at horizon but did not have a pilot's license. >> commercial aircraft are complex machines, so i don't know how he achieved the experience that he did. >> reporter: russell was married. he worked for horizon 3 1/2 years, posting about his job on youtube. >> i'm a ground service agent. that means i lift a lot of bags. >> reporter: neighbor elizabeth jibson spoke to russell just hours before his fatal flight and says he seemed well adjusted. >> he wasn't a bad person. he's a loving, kind person, very nice. sad and shocking. >> reporter: but authorities say russell was suicidal. he told controllers he was a broken man. >> i've got a lot of people that care about me and it's going to
7:07 am
disappoint them that i did this. i would like to apologize to each and every one of them. i'm just a broken guy, got a few screws loose i guess. >> reporter: the ones who cared about him the most, his family, now heartbroken, issuing this statement overnight. >> we are stunned and heartbroken. he was a warm, compassionate man. he was a faithful husband, a loving son, and a good friend. >> reporter: airline officials say of course russell was allowed to be around planes as part of his job, but they say will be taking a look at whether security procedures need to be changed. whit. >> all right, clayton sandell in seattle for us, thank you so much. >> we want to bring in retired marine corps colonel and abc news contributor steve ganyard, a former fighter pilot. colonel, thanks so much for joining us. we are learning a lot about this employee. he had clearance, he had access to that plane, but could the airlines add additional layers of security to prevent an amateur like this from pushing all the buttons, starting the aircraft, and taking off?
7:08 am
>> whit, obviously alaska and horizon and i think all airlines are going to have to go back and look at the people who have access to their airplanes and access to their cockpit. but in this case, you heard that he was a good guy. he was a great employee. there were no signs that would tip anybody off that he would do something like this. i think another thing that's remarkable is in the past, you would have had to have gone and taken flaying lessons, and have been in a simulator. you can go out and buy for $60 online a very high fidelity simulator for your home computer. if you look at some of those maneuvers, this guy had never flown an airplane and he was actually making some really nice, safe, very professional looking kinds of aerobatic maneuvers. it's quite remarkable. >> it really is, until of course the crash in the end there. no red flags though. officials did call him suicidal. what can you tell us about the mental health screening that these employees go through, and since they're granted this kind of access to the planes, should that screening be more rigorous?
7:09 am
>> it's hard to think about at what level do you ask people to go through mental screening. this guy was a ground handler. he threw bags on airplanes. he took care of airplanes. he towed them around. he's not the kind of person that you would think would need that kind of scrutiny for their mental health. look at the pilots. the pilots every year go through a physical, a flight physical, and they are asked about their mental status. if they want to hide it, if they want to hide suicidal thoughts, they can do it. we've seen at least four instances in the past four years, mozambique, indonesia. malaysia flight 370. you remember that german wings airplane that flew into the side of a cliff in the alps. these were all pilots who kept their demons internal and carried out their suicide plots, very hard to stop if you don't know about it. >> thankfully nobody else killed in this crash. steve ganyard in washington, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> i don't know about you two but for me i can't get this story out of my head. it is so searing to think about
7:10 am
what he was going through to get inside of a plane, knowing it was a suicide mission. >> and he was able to pull it off, and the tricks and stunts he was able to do in the air too before it all came to a fiery finish. we'll definitely stay on top of that. in the meantime, we want to turn to the other major story today, concerns this morning about dueling protests just hours away in washington marking one year since violent clashes erupted between white nationalists and counter-protesters in charlottesville. >> overnight tense moments between students, activists and police in riot gear on the university of virginia campus where last year white nationalists were carrying torches. those white nationalists were confronted. abc's david wright is also in washington where the largest protests are expected some time this afternoon and where security is very tight. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, adrienne and whit. this is where it will all go down later today, lafayette park right across the street from the white house. security, as you say, is very tight here today. d.c. authorities do not want a race riot right on the
7:11 am
president's doorstep. as the demonstrators descend on the nation's capitol, multiple law enforcement agencies are determined to keep things calm and to keep the two groups separate. white nationalists on one side of the park, counter-protesters on the other. authorities here don't want a repeat of charlottesville where white nationalists and neo-nazis clashed violently with counter-protesters. the melee turning deadly when a car driving at high speed mowed down counter-protesters and killed 32-year-old heather heyer. in charlottesville this weekend, a peaceful memorial. abc's eva pilgrim caught up with heyer's mother. >> are you worried this weekend? >> no. what will be will be and we'll move forward from there. >> reporter: the same group that organized last year's rally in charlottesville, unite the right, is behind today's rally in washington. >> i liken what i'm doing to the civil rights movement in the
7:12 am
1960s. >> reporter: organizer jason kessler insists he's not a racist. he sees himself as a civil rights advocate for white america. >> i think that white people are in a different situation than they've ever been before. right now white people are about to become a minority in both the united states and europe. i think we are facing epidemic levels of anti-white discrimination. >> reporter: a big difference this year in charlottesville and in washington, the counter-protesters may well outnumber the white nationalists. >> i think the point of the demonstration is to demonstrate to the world and to the city of d.c. that these people are a minority. >> reporter: the city of d.c. and the multiple law enforcement agencies securing this area have a good deal of experience with crowd control and protests. they're going to do their best to keep these marchers separate. behind me here you can see the counter-protesters will be on
7:13 am
this side of andrew jackson. the white nationalists on the other side. hopefully they won't even come together at all. while this is all on the president's doorstep, he's not even here. he's on his last day of vacation up in bedminster. guys. >> he's been calling it a working vacation. david wright, thank you for your reporting from d.c. president trump breaking his silence on the anniversary of those violent protests and he did so on twitter. >> it's become par for the course. we have a lot of news out of washington in what some are calling a stark contrast to his initial response to charlottesville. the president is now condemning all racism and acts of violence. abc's whout white house correspondent tara palmeri is in berkeley heights, new jersey near the president's golf club with the latest. tara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, guys. president trump invited the press to his golf club yesterday for an event with supporters, but instead of further condemning the rally, he called his former staffer a low life. this morning, president trump
7:14 am
calling for unity, as demonstrators prepare to gather near the white house. the president tweeting saturday he's fighting for all races, saying, the riots in charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. we must come together as a nation. i condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. this, a sharper tone from last year when many criticized him for not calling out violent white nationalists in clashes with counter-protesters saying -- >> i do think there's blame, yes, i think there's blame on both sides. >> reporter: the president keeping his distance from today's rallies, spending the weekend hundreds of miles away with his supporters at his bedminster resort in new jersey. >> we want to thank you for being here. >> reporter: where he also responded directly for the first time to his former adviser, omarosa manigault-newman, who calls him a racist in her new book. >> low life, she's a low life. >> reporter: the former reality show villain --
7:15 am
>> she has to be fired. >> reporter: -- rose up to be the highest ranking african-american in the white house only to be fired late last year. asked by tmz if the president's actions are causing tensions in the black community -- >> if he wants to start a race war, he's succeeding. >> is it fair to say the president is a racist? >> absolutely. >> reporter: according to "the washington post" who has an advance copy of her book "unhinged" manigault-newman claims the president is a, quote, racist, bigot and misogynist. the white house bashing her book, calling it riddled with lies and false accusations. we may not see the president this weekend as he has no more events on his public schedule. tomorrow he heads to ft. drumm in upstate new york tomorrow to sign the defense bill this year, named after senator john mccain. paula? >> tara, thank you. for more on this let's bring in abc's chief white house correspondent jon karl who's hosting "this week" a little later this morning. we're expecting a march in d.c. where you are. the president is taking a much different tone tweeting that he condoms all types of racism, and
7:16 am
quote, we must come together as a nation. so what is this role in this actually happening? >> reporter: in terms of coming together as a nation, it's not a successful one at this point. we had a recent poll by the quinnipiac organization saying just about a third of the country approves of the president's approach towards race relations. paula, among african-americans, only 3% approve of the president's actions. >> can we talk about omarosa who the president just called a low life. considering she's already changed her story, jon, how damaging could this book be, or do you expect people to presume that she's just a disgruntled employee with an axe to grind? >> reporter: she has serious credibility problems. i mean, she told us just last december that the president is absolutely not a racist, that she wouldn't have worked for a racist. so she's not exactly the most president's most high profile, prominent, senior african-american on his white house staff, and for that reason she can't be ignored. >> you've got michael avenatti
7:17 am
on the show who's become an unlikely hero on the left. this week he was doing the rounds as he's considering a presidential run. jon, you heard him say, quote, when they go low, he hit harder. do democrats really feel that he could be their guy? could we see a trump-avenatti joust? >> you mean a candidate with no political experience and a checkered past? >> yeah, that, exactly that. >> come on, that sounds crazy. he had quite a reception in iowa. he had a fiery speech. it was quite a beginning. he is the most unconventional candidate we've seen since, well, i guess since about four years ago. >> cannot wait to hear what he has to say on the show. jon, thank you. a reminder, everyone, jon has a big show this morning. he's going to go one-on-one with counsellor to the president kellyanne conway. plus as he just said, avenatti discusses that potential 2020 white house run. that's coming up on "this week" right here on abc. of course, the former first lady said, when they two low, we go high. michael avenatti says that's not working.
7:18 am
>> we go harder. >> we go lower almost to a degree. let's talk about going way up with rob marciano. let's talk about weather, rob. >> let's move away from my checkered past and get into what's happening across parts of the west. this video again out of las vegas. we had a big dust storm go through there yesterday with 60-mile-an-hour winds and 60,000 people at one point without power, so not a good situation there along the strip, boulder city, henderson as well. dry air is going to continue getting down into the teens as far as rh goes and that means bad news for the fires across much of the northern plains. looking at triple digit heat we saw a number of records broken yester
7:19 am
who's psyched for the pga who's psyched for the pga championship? >> i am. >> i am. >> now that we're all psyched, it's time for something else. to ron for the other headlines. >> good morning to you, all of you. ensemble. >> there are a lot of us. >> we're going to begin in baltimore, maryland where a police officer has been suspended after a video surfaced online showing him repeatedly punching a man on the street. the cell phone video shows the officer beating the man saturday and shoving him onto some steps until the man falls to the ground. the police interim commissioner there in baltimore says he is deeply disturbed by that video. the suspended officer's partner was placed on administrative leave. new york republican congressman chris collins who was indicted on insider trading charges earlier this week is ending his re-election campaign,
7:20 am
saying, it's in the best interest of his constituents, his party and president trump's agenda to suspend his bid for a fourth term. he had been favored to win in this heavily republican western new york district. in san leandro, california, the pilot of a small plane had to make an emergency landing when his aircraft's fuel line snapped and he started to lose pressure. the drama caught on video. check it out. >> i told you that guy was low. >> oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh, oh, my gosh. >> the plane landed right on interstate 580 leaving drivers, all of them, stunned. the two people on board that aircraft, they were uninjured. people on the ground also uninjured. at the pga championship outside of st. louis, rob, on saturday, check this out. >> get in the hole! >> british golfer matt wallace nailing a hole in one from 232 yards out on the 16th hole, a par 3. the 28-year-old saying, quote, a >>robably? >> there's still time. >> leave a little room. >> he then took the ball and threw it out from the hole into the cheering crowd.
7:21 am
he enters today's final round tied for 21st, five under par. tiger woods, what is he, paula? >> he's four back. can we hear rob say that again? >> i'm that guy. get in the hole! finally, there was another heated competition taking place on saturday. this one in aspen, colorado. thousands of yellow plastic ducks competing in this year's ducky derby. you see them there making their way down the roaring fork river. >> it's a thing. it's a thing. >> it's a thing. >> how do you know which one's which? >> the ducks can be adopted -- don't ask these things. it's for charity. >> that's mine right there, the one on the left. >> the one to the finish line gets 10,000 ducks -- i mean bucks. the rest of the money raised goes to local youth groups. >> that's great. >> i hope they fish all those rubber duckies out. >> they'll use them next year. thanks, ron. coming up on this sunday morning, maryland's head football coach is placed on administrative leave after arog scrutiny.
