7:07 am
critical time for the democratic agenda in a 50/50 senate. rachel scott has the latest. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: george, good morning. this really did come as a shock to so many senators here on capitol hill. democratic senator ben ray lujan of new mexico was feeling dizzy last week. he checked himself into a hospital. he found out that he suffered a stroke and had to undergo surgery to help with the swelling. his office tells us that he is expected to make a full recovery but at this point, it's unclear just how long he will be gone from capitol hill. democrats hold a razor-thin majority in the senate and it comes as president biden is trying to narrow down his short list for who he will nominate to the supreme court. to get his pick confirmed without any republican support, he will need the vote of every single democratic senator. it could be weeks before president biden announces his choice but democrats have already had to reshuffle their plans, pushing off votes for other key nominees. one democratic senator telling me that this is just a reminder that in a senate that is split 50/50, any unexpected development could serve as a challenge to democrats and their

agenda, but, of course, they are wishing senator lujan well. george? >> we all are. rachel scott, thank you very much. robin? >> we are, george. thank you. now to the latest on russia and ukraine. russian president vladimir putin speaking for the first time in weeks about the crisis and placing the blame on the u.s. and its allies. our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell is there on the scene for us in ukraine. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, robin. we're in one of these many frontline towns between ukrainian forces and russian-backed rebels. there used to be 800 people living here. today there are only 90 left. with the world watching and worrying about the troops at the border, vladimir putin speaking out criticizing america and the west for, quote, ignoring our concerns. he thinks that nato's broken promises by expanding into eastern europe, which he sees as a threat. quote, as the people say they played us. of course the u.s. rejecting that saying russia is the aggressor by invading ukraine and gathering these troops at the border.
7:09 am
meanwhile, american fighter jets taking part in preplanned military exercises in estonia. no diplomatic breakthroughs yet but the good news is that both sides are agreeing to continue talking. the bad is that the differences between the two still remain and the greatest danger is right here. one small misstep between ukraine and these rebel forces could potentially ignite a much greater conflict. michael? >> hopefully they can talk their way through it. ian, thank you so much. now, we're going to turn to that blistering lawsuit against the nfl. former miami dolphins head coach brian flores is suing the league and three teams for alleged racial discrimination and calling for the nfl to make some major changes. trevor ault has more for us this morning. good morning, trevor. >> reporter: good morning, michael. brian flores was thought to be on the short list for some of the most high-profile jobs in football and now he's taking on the nfl himself. this is a wide-ranging lawsuit about his own treatment and about black coaches in general. it named several teams. it includes text messages from patriots head coach bill
7:10 am
belichick and goes as far as to accuse the league of being managed like a plantation. this morning, former miami dolphins coach brian flores is speaking out for the first time after accusing the nfl of racial discrimination. >> we need change. i know very capable black coaches. if given an opportunity or when given an opportunity will do a great job in the opportunity. >> reporter: in a proposed class action lawsuit filed monday., flores says the league remains rife with racism particularly when it comes to the hiring and retention of black head coaches, coordinators and general managers. in the last month flores was fired after back-to-back winning seasons in miami and then passed over for the top job with the new york giants. in his lawsuit flores says just last week the giants invited him to interview for its head coaching vacancy but flores, who spent ten years under bill belichick with the patriots, says days before that meeting,
7:11 am
his former boss mistakenly sent him these text messages saying the job had already gone to brian dabol, a white coach, and he alleges in 2019 when the broncos interviewed him the team executives were disheveled, adding it was obvious they were drinking heavily the night before, accusations the team says are blatantly false and they too later hired a white coach. flores is now calling both meetings sham interviews. he believes they were only granted to satisfy the league's 20-year-old rooney rule which mandates teams interview at least one minority candidate for top positions. but the giants say they are confident with the process that resulted in the hiring of brian dabol. the nfl responding to the allegations in a statement saying diversity is core to everything we do and there are few issues on which our clubs and our internal leadership team spend more time. we will defend against these claims, which are without merit. now there are still five vacancies but as of right now there is only one black head
7:12 am
coach in the nfl. brian flores says he's risking his chances of ever getting hired again with this lawsuit but said it had to be done to enact change. george? >> trevor ault, thanks very much. now to that breaking news overnight. "the view" co-host whoopi goldberg suspended for two weeks for her comments about the holocaust. erielle reshef has the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. though goldberg apologized, it created a firestorm. this morning, abc news suspending whoopi goldberg for two weeks in response to her inflammatory remarks about the holocaust. abc news president kim godwin saying in a statement, effective immediately, i am suspending whoopi goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments. while whoopi has apologized, i've asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments. the entire abc news organization stands in solidarity with our jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities. >> if you're going to do this, then let's be truthful about it because the holocaust isn't
7:13 am
about race. >> reporter: on monday's show, the host of abc's "the view" inaccurately claimed the holocaust was not related to race. >> it's not about race. it's not about race. >> what is it about? >> it's about man's inhumanity to man. that's what it's about. >> whoopi goldberg. >> reporter: goldberg appearing to double down on "the colbert show" that night. >> the american experience tends to be based on skin. >> yes, and so that is what race means to me. when you talk about being a racist, i was saying you can't call this racism. this was evil. this wasn't -- this wasn't based on the skin. you couldn't tell who was jewish. they had to delve deeply to figure it out. >> reporter: then tweeting an apology saying in part, the jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. i'm sorry for the hurt i have caused and the next day opening "the view" with this. >> i said that the holocaust wasn't about race and it was instead about man's inhumanity
7:14 am
to man. but it is indeed about race because hitler and the nazis considered jews to be an inferior race. now words matter and mine are no exception. i regret my comments, as i said, and i stand corrected. i also stand with the jewish people as they know and y'all know because i've always done that. >> reporter: by the end of the holocaust just 77 years ago, 6 million jews had been murdered. >> that might not fit exactly or feel different than the way we think about race in 21st century america where it's primarily about people of color, but throughout the jewish people's history they have been marginalized, they have been persecuted, they have been slaughtered in large part because many felt they were not just a different religion, but indeed a different race. [ crowd chanting ] >> reporter: the head of the anti-defamation league warning anti-semitism is still a real and present danger. >> we need people of good faith
7:15 am
on the left and the right to call it out forcefully, fully without hesitation. >> studies show an alarming decline in knowledge about the holocaust at a time when anti-semitism has surged to unprecedented levels. the fbi saying jews are the most targeted for religious-based hate crimes in this country and george, as you heard there, goldberg saying she regrets her comments and any hurt they may have caused. >> yes, she did. erielle, thanks very much. robin? now to the tragedy at a college in virginia. two officers shot and killed during an active shooting situation. president biden tweeting, quote, another senseless shooting has taken the lives of two brave officers. gun violence against law enforcement officers is sickening and it must end. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas has the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: robin, good morning. tragedy came to bridgewater college, a small liberal arts school of only 1,500 students about two hours southwest of washington, d.c. just after 1:00 p.m.

7:40 am
>> there's high praise there for you. you really, when you decided to retire, you had made calls, you had made, you know, relationships and that's what brady seems to have done like taken the time to think about the next. >> i think tom's one of these guys who frames his life in different ways. football was a part of his life. it's not his entire life. so you see all the businesses and other things that he has going, he's going to just transition over and he will miss it. when i'm asked that question, i know he will miss football. i missed it but after about three or four months and watching guys get hit like that, i was like, i'm good and he will appreciate it more. his body will appreciate it. >> well, i can say, nfl's loss is our gain having you with us. >> thank you. >> that's the truth. coming up next, never before seen video of the waffle house hero. such a brave man. come on back. trelegy for copd. ♪ birds flyin' high ♪ ♪ you know how i feel ♪ (coughing) ♪ breeze driftin' on by ♪ ♪ you know how i feel ♪ copd may have gotten you here, but you decide what's next. start a new day with trelegy.

8:32 am
>> tell us why that emily look has really taken off. >> look at it. it's so fun. it's over the top. it's again like you were saying that more is more couture. not very wearable or translatable into our everyday wear but i'm going to show you exactly how you can do it on a budget you can afford. >> you are the best at doing that, our friend. so we have four wonderful "gma" staffers that are modeling more emily looks this morning. starting with cynthia, she's wearing a take on emily's heart dress under $50, melissa. >> yes. so how cute is this valentine's day right around the corner. emily loves prints. this is a fun kitschy print dress we see. not easy to wear. i wanted to sort of translate it into a way we could wear it. this awesome two-piece matching set. this is from just fab like you were saying, robin, under $50, super comfortable. really wearable and then, of course, we paired it with a great accessory, this wide headband so parisian from amazon. making this comfortable and really inexpensive.
8:33 am
>> all right, oh, look, she's going in for a close-up. cynthia coming in for the close-up. all right. so next is caroline wearing a look inspired by emily's holiday dress at a much more affordable price, right, melissa? >> yes, so how fun is this? it's really beautiful blue. this is actually the pantone color of the year. of course, it's expensive. we don't want to pay a ton of money. her shoes themselves in this shot here are about $500. the dress about 700. but i'll show you here as you can see the dress we found is like almost an exact replica but this one is under $100 and has that same deep "v," the ruffled detail, the beautiful maxi length so gorgeous and then we are paired it with a fun rainbow metallic shoe from macy's and it pulls together for $130. >> i love how caroline is working it, the kick up of the foot. it is beautiful. next up, ro rocking another look

sweater for under 20 bucks, melissa. >> yes, i love that. a gorgeous layered look. you know, in the show she wore this with a valentino belt which is over a thousand dollars itself so we know it was really expensive, the entire look. here we found this great white blazer from boohoo, $17, the sweater vest she has on was about $8 and the skirt was only $10 shein and took accessories from macy's and i think it looks like the original for so much less. >> it does. way to go, nicole. thank you to our amazing "gma" staffers and always for you, melissa, thank you so much. have a great day, everyone. >> thanks, robin. >> you got it. coming up, lynn richardson with advice on financial

back now here on "gma" as we celebrate black history month, we're going to be taking a look at some of the important issues facing black americans. this morning we're talking finances. it's so important for families to plan for the future and protect what they have. according to only 27% of black americans have a will in place and many have no idea how to get started. it's a storyline captured in the final series
8:39 am
the hit show "insecure." >> i just don't like seeing how little i have to leave my family. i mean i worked 50 years and it feels like i got nothing to show for it. >> reporter: for many families planning finances for the future can be uncomfortable particularly for black families. according to a recent study, more than 70% of black americans have not started the essential estate planning process. >> my grandparents are in their golden years. we wanted to make sure that they were protected. >> reporter: meet cousins malcolm and tia taking the leap creating an estate plan on behalf of their grandparents. >> we wanted to make sure that all of their wishes was granted. >> reporter: after recently losing close loved ones, the importance of getting affairs in order took on a new meaning. >> my dad was diagnosed with a form of dementia. he was not in a state of mind mentally where he was able to do any estate planning once he became ill. our family does want to make sure this doesn't happen to anybody else. >> what happens to everything that you've built after you're gone? how does it get to the people that you care about? it's your legacy. > reporter: we caught up with the cousins and their estate planner coach portia wood. >> malcolm, tia, how are you?
8:40 am
>> hey, portia. what's going on? great to see you. >> we decided on a trust-based plan structure for you and one of the goals was sort of intergenerational wealth. >> reporter: portia set malcolm and tia up with a trust-based plan. it centers around three parts, your goals, assets and family structure. >> one it was about the goals. the goals your grandparents set out for why they had accumulated all these assets and how they wanted them to be used to continue to support the family. do you feel confident in your role as successor trustees in this plan? >> absolutely. >> we just want to thank you so much for being a great consultant. >> it has truly been an honor. >> we deserve it, right? we as black people deserve to be able to have what we've earned work for us and to work for our families into perpetuity. >> managing family finances we know can be challenging so we have an expert joining us with some advice on how to get the ball rolling. lynn richardson is a financial coach and also the author of
8:41 am
"estate planning made simple." okay, you're going to make it simple for us, lynn. there are so many people -- good to see you. so many people, so many familes, estate planning is daunting and a lot of people feel, oh, if you're wealthy, that is not the case and so when should people get started? >> oh, thank you so much, robin. let me say this. everybody has an estate planned. it is not just for the wealthy. your clothing, your furniture, your jewelry, your real estate, automobiles, electronics, your bank accounts, all of that is a part of your estate plan and with proper planning, we can ensure that our loved ones can live the lives that we see for them even when we are not here. let me say this. i was on food stamps in this century but even when i was on food stamps, i had enough life insurance and estate plan to ensure that my children would live the lives that i saw for
8:42 am
them even if i did not make it. so it's so important for each and every one of us to understand that the time is now. time is of the essence. and every single one of us has the ability to create an estate plan for ourselves and our loved ones so we can have peace at night when we go to sleep. >> you say start as young as 18. >> yes, absolutely. well, first of all, everyone needs appropriate life insurance and so many things have happened during this pandemic and what i want everyone to understand is this, gofundme is not a substitute for life insurance. so as early as the age of 18, if you have enough life insurance, you can then put that life insurance into an annuity. that annuity can then pay your heirs a trust for the rest of their lives and then that income can pass on to their children and so on and so forth. so it's very important for us to think about those things.
8:43 am
the other thing is this, if you own real estate, if your real estate is left to someone in your will, it can be contested and it can be tied up in probate but if you put that real estate in a trust fund, it will carry on to your beneficiaries without any hiccups. so it's really important for all of us to understand not only that we all have one, but how easy it is if we get the right coaching. >> how different these different plans you're talking about, different ways of approaching it. let me ask you this, lynn, why is it such a difficult conversation for families to have, estate planning? >> oh, my goodness. it is so difficult because nobody wants to talk about dying. and more than that, nobody wants to talk about money. we'll talk about everything else. we'll talk about sex and drugs and so on and so forth but no one wants to talk about money. i often say to family, speak to your children at a very young age about the estate plan. help them understand what you've put in place for them.
8:44 am
as they get older, and you no longer have to deal with minor care and so on and so forth and you adjust the plan continue to speak to them. and if your family members do not want to talk about estate planning say this to them, say, do you want me to take care of you when i am no longer here? if the answer is yes, have the discussion. >> you always -- you break it down. you make it simple for us. lynn, thank you. always good to see you. appreciate it so very, very much. >> thank you so much. >> you take care. let's get back now to ginger. ginger? >> reporter: robin, we have tiny little dendrites, the snowflakes small here but on the other side, indianapolis, look at this morning, still rain. they will transition later and get into some of the freezing stuff. i have to show you there is a flood watch that goes from hazard, kentucky, down into alabama, birmingham is included. chattanooga certainly in there. a lot of people could see three to four inches happening quickly so some of the rivers and creeks could rise. watch for that. that's the

8:48 am
>> probably my bathtub. i'm a big fan of a nice relaxing bath at the end of the day. definitely my kettle because i drink so much tea and also in the show actually the character jane is not allowed to bring any books into the house and i don't think i could live without books either. >> three good choices right there. you have a doppelganger in the show. jessica plummer plays the girl before, and she looks so much like you, even her own daughter couldn't tell you apart. >> i know. i mean it's hilarious. it's part of the story as you say that we have a resemblance and when her daughter was watching the trailer, jessica told me that she was going, momma, when it was me, so, yeah, we pulled it off well, i think. >> definitely you did if you're fooling the kid. let's take -- we'll take a look at a clip and you're trying to persuade the architect of your dream house to let you live
8:49 am
let's check it out. >> we need to find the right fit but perhaps we found it. >> look, i'm not going to give you some long gushy spiel about why i want to live there, just that you've built a house with integrity and i'll try to live there with integrity too. >> hmm. and you not only acted in thisst time as a producer. so what was that like? >> oh, it was an amazing experience, i have to say, coming on as associate producer of the show being able to be part of the development of the scripts. when i came on board, there were just two scripts and obviously it's based on this best-selling book. so i was able to read the book and, you know, contribute to the development of the script process and then, of course, the casting process which was really fun because, you know, once david oyelowo was mentioned as an idea, he is an actor i worked with in the past and a good
8:50 am
friend, so it was really fun to be able to call him up and tell him about the project. >> yeah, that's nice to call your friends if they're david oyelowo and say, hey, i want you in my project. we're celebrating black history month and you painted -- we saw an incredible portrait of one of your heros, bishop desmond tutu taught your father. so did that inspire your painting? >> it absolutely did. you know, my father grew up in apartheid south africa and, you know, before bishop tutu joined the church he was a schoolteacher and my dad would always tell me since being a young girl about how charismatic and amazing tutu was as a teacher when they studied oliver twist at school in africa and he was such a great storyteller. such a joyful, exuberant man. so when he passed over the holidays i was with my dad and wanted a chance to honor him in a painting. >> a great painting. very, very talented in all aspects of your life. before you go, another character
