7:08 am
letting this happen to hillary clinton, her mentor. >> speaking of hilary clinton, she has a lunch today with president obama. you don't know what's on the menu food-wise or otherwise. >> food-wise or otherwise. they say this is just a catch up. they met three times since she left the cabinet but the timing is auspicious. it's the day when the middle east negotiators are arriving in washington. john kerry made six shuttle trips to the region and finally getting them here. it's the resumption of talks after three years. they'll talk about that and egypt blowing up and vladimir putin i suspect. maybe he wants her opinion about who to put in as the new fed chair. that's a big fight in washington. and you can't imagine this conversation taking place without the elephant in the room being addressed which is what to do about getting weiner out of the race. clinton doesn't want to -- what the hilary clinton supporters don't want to appear is she
7:09 am
tries to get him out of the race for herself and is disloyal to huma. that would be even worse for hillary clinton. >> never a shortage of topics. thank you very much. appreciate it. >> natalie is here following a deadly tour bus tragedy in italy. good morning. >> good morning. a tour bus plunged off a highway in southern italy killing at least 38 people. workers used a crane to lift the wreckage of the bus. as many as 49 people were onboard when it tore through a guard rail after hitting cars and heavy traffic. the plunged 100 feet off the highway into a ravine. more than 70 people were killed this weekend after violent clashes between egyptian security forces and supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi. we're joined with the latest. >> good morning. egypt is bracing itself for another rally organized by supporters of the ousted president, mohamed morsi.

7:19 am
in the last three months, three members allegedly broke out of prison. one of them just last week. some suspect this is a sign the gang is back. so who was that masked man? were there others? how on earth do they get away? if police know at this point, they're not saying. analysts say if police don't catch a thief like this in two hours, the jewels are cut down, reset, made untraceable. carson? >> fascinating. michelle kosinski, thank you. a briefcase, $53 million out of front door. it's almost the plot of a movie. >> that's right. inspector. >> who makes a getaway in cannes. cleveland kidnapping victim amanda berry makes her first public appearance as her captor prepares for sentencing this week. coming up, ariel castro's son speaks out. and can hackers actually

7:34 am
life. >> the prosecutors did consider the death penalty in this case. would you have been okay with that punishment? >> it would have been tough to accept just because death penalty cases are -- you end up in court a lot, and so they come back a lot more often. i think this way is a lot better because, you know, he has put himself away and he will be away for the rest of his life. >> would you ever visit him in jail? >> right now i can't see any scenario where i would go visit him. he's been lying to his family for the past s10, 11 years at every possible turn. i have no trust in him. i can't see myself going to visit him and giving him the opportunity to face me and lie to me again. >> let me take you back to that day in may when the world found out that he had been keeping these three women captive for a period of more than ten years. what was your initial reaction?
7:35 am
>> well, i first found out that the girls had been found. gina and amanda had been found. and it wasn't until a little bit later that details started to come in. so my first feeling was, you know, overwhelming joy because this was a case where it captivated our city for so long. and, you know, it was shortly thereafter where my father's name and picture started to come out and, you know, it really became real to me when the 911 call started to be played, and i heard amanda berry say his name and that was the toughest moment. that's when it became real. >> were you shocked? >> i was shocked because of the magnitude of such a crime. i don't think i could imagine anyone doing that, let alone to find out it was my own flesh and blood, my father.
7:36 am
however, i did grow up in a house with a lot of fear and a lot of violence. and so the fact that this was a violent case, no, it didn't surprise me. >> people have talked about that. growing up, you were abused. your mom was terribly abused according to you and your siblings. tell me about what it was like to live under his roof. >> incredibly strict. he had a temper. he wasn't, you know, a monster 24/7. but if you crossed him, there would be consequences and those more often than not would be physical consequences. i remember crying myself to sleep when i was a kid because i was, you know, my legs are covered in welts from belts, you know and seeing my mom getting beat up in our own home and no
7:37 am
one should ever have to see their mom crumpled up in a corner on the floor the way i did so many times. >> so many people have wondered whether anyone in the family could possibly have known. had you been inside that house on seymour avenue during the time period when we now know these three women were being held? >> yes, i had been there a few times. more often than not, on the outside only. but when i did go in the house, i would always enter through the back door. that's where my father would flag me in. and we'd talk in the kitchen. we would be there 15, 20 minutes. >> did you ever see any signs that in retrospect that you wonder about? did he have locks on the doors or that kind of thing? >> well, the locks on the doors weren't unusual. even when we lived there, there were locks on the basement door, the attic door. the garage was locked. windows were nailed shut. >> when you were a child there were places you just couldn't go? >> absolutely. >> when you think about what these women have gone through, does it haunt you?
7:38 am
>> it does. it's been about -- a little less than three months since we learned about all of this and it's been a three-month nightmare. obviously, nothing to compare to what the girls went through but, you know, this has been incredibly hard. >> do you think about the fact that this is your father, this is your flesh and blood, is it hard to handle being related to someone who is capable of such cruelty? >> absolutely. and what's horrifying is i have the same first and last name. i look in the mirror and i see the resemblance and i think about what he did and how horrible it was and i just can't help sometimes just being overcome with that. >> your mom would have turned 50 tomorrow. >> yes. >> in some ways, do you think about this as justice for her and what she went through?
7:39 am
the fact that he will now spend the rest of his life in prison? >> i do. i really do. i think that she will be there. the first morning he wakes up in prison, you know, and the sun shines down, that's going to be her justice. >> it wasn't easy for you to come out and speak publicly, to show your face. why did you want to? what message would you want to send? >> i really wanted to thank the people that were the closest to me and helped me through this. you know, my best friends and my coworkers have been incredibly understanding and have been there for me. and i really want to thank them for that and i also want to just express how happy i am that because of all of this my father will never be able to hurt anyone ever again. >> if you had anything to say to him, what would it be? >> i have nothing to say to him. >> anthony castro, thank you for being here this morning. we appreciate it.

9:02 am
savannah. >> what did you think of the sentence your father got? did they get what he deserved? >> i think it's the best possible sentence. if he can't control his impulses and doesn't have any value for human life the way this case has shown then behind bars is where he belongs the rest of his life. have the same first and last name. i look in the mirror and i see the resemblance and i think about what he did and how horrible it was and i just can't help sometimes just being overcome with that. >> what an amazing interview. and such courage because i mean, he talked with savannah about how the last three months have been an nightmare for his family. just sad to see, he is such a nice young man and having to deal with the fact that, you know, he forever will live with that, what he father did to the three women. >> i like what he said about looking in the mirror, a lot of
9:03 am
people would feel guilty by association but him saying i have to look at myself in the mirror. that's my dna and that part of it is hard for me. >> when savannah asked him what do you have to say to your father? >> have nothing to say to my father. >> that's it. amazing. >> well, a little change of pace, carson, you had a busy weekend. >> yeah, we had the television critics association. >> you were there for the voice and everybody was talking about how saw many kristina looks. >> i have known her since she was 15 or 16. i have known her a long time. this is a photo from this weekend for those of you keeping track. it was almost like a time machine. it was 1999 all over again. listen, she takes a lot of hits in the public about her weight and has and deflected a lot but something happened in the last six months with christina. she really found herself. in the time she took off the show. she spent time with her son. they went to asia.
9:04 am

9:05 am
or investment banker. >> too funny. get him out of here. >> you're funny but you're also rich. women's use a man's ability to make them laugh as a way to judge his fitness as a partner and potential dad. she once asked why did you date my dad and she said well he made me laugh. he was funny and courtney said you think he's funny? >> every man is much more attack tif when they are funny. >> all chicks say that but they don't live up to that. >> it's true. >> you hear that a lot but at the bar it's remember i was making you laugh all night there. i want to get your number. you have to have it. we have a flight in from l.a. we had kids and we were delayed and there's times at that whole better for worse if you can just rely on that laughter with your mate it's a difference maker. >> just look in the media. the guys who make women laugh are not necessarily the best

9:07 am
>> yeah, women have never known about that. guys can have issues. and this one i don't get. >> i love this idea. >> what is it? >> when you struggle to scrape out the last traces of peanut butter from the jar. well, look at this promotional video for a new project that went nuts online over the weekend. >> the peanut butter jar is messy, inefficient and wasteful. it's impossible to avoid peanut butter knuckles when extracting the substance from a nearly empty jar. jar with a twist solves all of these problems. it's designed like a deoderant jar. >> wow, that's attractive. >> it's not a real product yet. >> how about when you've got your knuckles down there it's just time to buy more peanut

9:09 am
that sandwich. >> this is like a shark tank product. >> or a waste of time. >> did we just ruin this guys. >> now you have your hand all the way up -- it's like you're doing a peanut butter puppet. >> okay. al, let's get a little check of the weather. >> that's going to spill by the way. >> i know. i was getting ready. i have jelly all over my hands. >> see, it's much better than a conventional jar. let's see, we have tropical storm flossie. 50 miles per hour, moving west. not going to do much. maybe showers and high winds and high waves but that's the worst that's going to happen. that blows through early tuesday morning and rest of the country we are looking at strong storms from kansas into oklahoma. >> i have jelly all over my hands now.
