halftime show, the falcons were firmly in control. so was the singer, leaping off the roof of nrg stadium, then performing with hundreds of singers, dancers, and yes, drones. >> we had 300 drones that were powered there from intel, that shot was pretaped by the way. patriots fans back home, in the meantime, at the end of all of this, taking to the streets of boston. celebrating at nrg stadium with the crew, booing roger goodell as he took to the stage. he really is a nemesis. you can see they're all dressed up including that guy with the jacket. and this was the scene in many parts of boston. people singing, dancing. police thanked them for good behavior saying they acted like champions. they acted as if they'd been there before, and they have, four previous times. the on-field champions also celebrating. >> you know, our team showed great mental toughness throughout the game. just never really flinched even
though the score was so against us for so long. >> yeah, i couldn't believe it. one of the greatest catches. we've been on the other end of a few of those catches. you know, tonight -- you know, we came up with it. so it was a pretty spectacular catch. he had a hell of a game. >> had a good feel on it. i didn't know if maybe a piece of the ball was touching. i knew that -- i don't know what the dang rule is, no one knows what the rule for a catch is. i was like, i think i got it. i'm pretty sure i got it. tip your hat to atlanta. they played a really good football game. they're a really good team. thankfully we were able to make more plays at the end. >> i wasn't thinking much, you know. i was thinking, we've just got to score. then we scored the touchdown. it was 9. then we got a turnover. there was a lot of [ bleep ] that happened tonight. i got hit pretty hard. >> i love it, keeping it real. >> absolutely. we're going to bring this sucker home! new yorkers aren't necessarily
fans of the patriots. >> it's no secret. >> it's no secret, in fact, the new york giants were -- this was a touching moment there. gisele with her husband. >> and the kids. >> happy wife. >> happy life. >> so i think it works out there. the new york tabloids, the "new york post" this morning i think capturing the way a lot of new yorkers feel. "cheat your heart out." they couldn't even be nice about it. >> not even for a second. >> not for a second. congratulations, patriots nation. more on this throughout the morning as well. and of course turning to our other top story, the immigration showdown pitting president trump against a federal appeals court. >> so the president is attacking a judge who initially issued the temporary restraining order suspending that travel ban over the weekend, as he warns homeland security to check people very carefully at the nation's airports. abc's david wright with the latest. >> reporter: this is the scene playing out at airports across the country.
families torn apart by the trump administration's targeted travel ban reuniting with hugs and tears. with the ban now on hold pending appeals, it's a race against time for visa holders to get into the u.s. >> i didn't know how long it's going to take me to see my mother. >> happy that i'm here now. >> reporter: an anxious moment for many families. >> i really hope that everything is okay. >> reporter: officials canceled this woman's visa in the initial confusion. now she's back in syria. her husband in virginia. it's unclear how long the doors will remain open. the federal appeals court rejected the trump administration's bid to immediately restore the travel ban, which denies entry to people from seven predominantly muslim countries. the legal review of trump's executive order now almost certain to make its way to the u.s. supreme court. vice president mike pence is defending his boss.
>> i think the early days of this administration are going to be described in the history books as days of action. >> reporter: the president is spending the weekend at his florida resort. but an interview he taped friday with fox's bill o'reilly is raising eyebrows. in it, trump admits he admires russian president vladimir putin. >> putin's a killer. >> a lot of killers, we got a lot of killers, you think our country's so innocent? >> reporter: that comparison does not sit well with lawmakers including trump's fellow republicans. >> there is no moral equivalency between the united states of america, the greatest freedom-loving nation in the history of the world, and the murderous thugs that are in putin's defense of his cronyism. >> reporter: david wright, abc news, palm beach. in the meantime, the vice president taking to the airwaves to defend president trump's decision to preserve president obama's 2014 executive order protecting lgbt employees of federal contractors from discrimination. >> he appeared on abc's "this week." he told george stephanopoulos
president trump's decision was in line with his message to the lgbt community on the campaign trail. >> throughout the campaign president trump made it clear that discrimination would have no place in our administration. i mean, he was the very first republican nominee to mention the lgbtq community at a republican national convention and was applauded for it. and i was there applauding with him. >> still, pence reaffirmed president trump's stated plan to "destroy the johnson amendment" which prohibits churches and other tax-exempt organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates. the explosive developments over the weekend in what had been a cold case in new york. dna evidence apparently has led to an arrest in a high-profile murder of a new york city jogger. karina vetrano's body was found in the weeds in a park not far from her queens home. prosecutors say a 20-year-old
man, chanel lewis, has admitted to killing vetrano. the suspect's father says he doesn't believe it. >> he's a wonderful young man, wonderful young man. >> do you believe he could have committed this crime? >> no, he would not have. he would not have. >> and in addition to the confession, prosecutors say lewis' dna was found at the scene and on the victim's body. there is a new winter storm gaining strength and taking aim on the west coast, packing snow, heavy rain, and flash floods. it's triggering weather alerts from california to colorado. right behind another storm taking shape in the midwest. here's abc's senior meteorologist rob marciano. >> been a rough winter for portland and seattle. they're getting another storm right now where snow levels are nearing sea level. we've looked for a high-impact event the next 12 to 18 hours. 2 to 6 inches of snow potentially in the metro areas. 1 to 2 feet in some of the
mountains above 1,000 feet san francisco to los angeles. you're looking at heavy rain as well. parts of this energy getting to the plains. we're going to wind up the storm monday. gusty winds, strong storms likely across the plains and across the midsouth as well. look at all the rain getting into the northeast. mixed precipitation across northern new england. most of the cities will be mostly rain. but this is what we're worried about tuesday, the threat for severe weather, damaging winds, large hail, potentially tornados midweek. rob marciano, abc news, new york. this was pretty cool and has people wondering could this be the future of political campaigning? take a look at this, a candidate in france managed to appear in two places at once by using a hologram. look at it. so supporters said the image was so lifelike, they forgot for a moment the candidate wasn't actually there. so the french are heading to the polls to pick their new president in april, and with runoffs in may, that will be one way they'll be able to canvass all of the country. >> it's really fascinating. hard to tell.
in yesterday's other big sports championship, it was fluff over ruff. we're talking about puppy bowl xiii, team fluff blew out team ruff 93-38. fluff was led by a 17-week-old poodle mix named rory, who had three touchdowns in the third quarter. >> rory was named most valuable pup. the team set a new record for scoring. and unlike the falcons, fluff never got -- combed out. and was able to sink its teeth into the lombarki trophy. >> get it? >> barki trophy. >> cute, cute. >> wow. >> they're all actually rescued dogs which -- >> yeah. all up for adoption as well. preparations under way in england as the queen makes history today. plus royal race. william, kate and harry in a

upon hearing it was at a spa, the coach writes, not quite as bad. in another exchange after a player is arrested for assault, coach briles texted the athletic director, the player said waco p.d. was there, said they were going to keep it quiet. those texts released nearly nine months after internal investigation found the school mishandled and in some cases silenced sexual assault claims. stephanie muntank taking her alleged sexual assault to then university president ken starr. >> i wish they would have done more to help. if someone really believed i was sitting in class next to my rapist, more should have been done about it. >> reporter: starr eventually stepping down, briles fired. since then briles supporters have demanded more details some hoped would exonerate the coach. >> these text messages reinforce, in many ways confirm, the allegations that women have made about a cover-up. >> reporter: briles also filed a libel suit against the university but dropped it just

the presidential race. >> that's right. in a presuper bowl interview on fox news the president said vice president pence will head a special commission to investigate voter fraud. >> let me just tell you, it doesn't have to do with the vote, although that's the end result. has to do with the registration. when you look at the registration and you see dead people that have voted. when you see people that are registered in two states that voted in two states. when you see other things. when you see illegals, people that are not citizens, and they're on the registration rolls. look, bill, we can be babies. but you take a look at the registration, you have illegals, dead people, you have this -- it's really a bad situation. it's really bad. >> president trump did not directly answer a question about whether he has evidence of voter fraud, only suggesting that he's seen voter registration records suggesting widespread voter fraud. election officials in both parties say they've seen no such evidence. >> he spent the weekend criticizing that federal appeals
court judge who issued the temporary restraining order on his travel ban. >> he said that judge is putting the country "in peril." it comes as the president tweeted out to followers, enjoy the super bowl and then we continue make america great again. but not all americans are feeling great. here's abc's david wright. >> reporter: a legal showdown with tearful repercussions. >> i didn't know how long it's going to take me to see my mother. >> reporter: families torn apart by trump's abrupt targeted travel ban racing to reunite, not sure how long the door will remain open. trump warned, i have instructed homeland security to check people coming into our country very carefully. the courts are making the job very difficult." the fate of trump's controversial policy shutting the doors to visa holders from seven predominantly muslim countries now in the hands of the ninth circuit court of appeals. the appeals court rejected the administration's plea for an emergency ruling that would have
reinstated the executive order. but a three-judge panel is set to review the issue. the department of justice argues the federal judge in washington who lifted the ban improperly second-guessed the president's national security determinations, overstepping his judicial authority. democrats are pushing back on that. >> the president is not a dictator. the framers of our constitution wanted a strong congress for the very reason that most of these kinds of things should be done within the scope of lawmaking. >> reporter: trump appears to see it differently. tweeting, "just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. if something happens, blame him and court system. people pouring in. bad." even some republicans are expressing discomfort about the tone the president has set. especially with that tweet disparaging this so-called judge. >> i'll be honest, i don't

hoping for a few hours' break from it all. he told o'reilly he'll be rooting for tom brady. >> so i'll say the patriots will win. >> by how many points? >> by 8 points. >> reporter: trump says he likes both teams but brady's his friend and he said, you've got to stick up for your friends. the pitched legal battle over the travel ban could have fallout for trump's supreme court pick. democrats have already signaled they'll have some tough questions for judge neil gorsuch. they want to know, does he believe in checks and balances? does he believe in an independent judiciary? in the context of this issue, that could put him at odds with the president. david wright, abc news, palm beach. >> our thanks to abc's david wright reporting. turning now to the weather and what's being called a high-impact event bearing down on the west coast. a major system likely to start out as rain and turn to snow later today is triggering weather alerts from california to colorado. meantime, another storm system packing gusty winds is raking across the midwest and the plains, driving a

tide. number one rated. it's got to be tide here in "the mix," of course it's going to be about the super bowl, in particular the halftime show which is really whether you like lady gaga or not -- >> spectacle. >> absolute spectacle. the thing many people were talking about was this leap of faith she kind of took from the top of nrg stadium there in houston. >> there she goes. >> a lot of people were like, how did that happen? >> i thought it was live. >> no, that part was prerecorded. i don't mean to bust the bubble. still impressive. it spawned a lot of memes including this one where lady gaga as a wrestler. one person doing the same gif saying, that's me jumping into a relationship. it was a rough night for atlanta fans. >> a rough night. particularly for a fan who bet
$1.1 million. the payout would have been worth it because he would have won $1 million, he or she. they had to have been spending that money early on riding high thinking, we got a win here. right? until the very end. and they lost $1.1 million. >> if you have $1.1 million to bet on a game, i think you can afford -- >> probably. let us hope. but you should have bet. you apparently are a soothsayer. i didn't realize it sitting next to you on friday -- >> so last friday, you know how we do our signs. we just kind of make up different things. i knew what would happen. so take a look. you'll see. that was my prediction. 34-28.
>> and that was the final score. >> nailed it. i knew it would be a comeback victory as well. i'm going to play the lotto today. so of course it is no laughing matter for many of the folks in atlanta. in fact, a lot of them are crying. you've seen the poster for the tv show "atlanta" on fx. there's the losing with the crying -- >> i think it's too soon. too soon for the atlanta fans, yes. >> the crying jordans. they had a good season. >> there's always next year. if you're curious i will let you know who will win next year's super bowl as well. it was a fun, amazing -- even if you're a falcons fan you had to have at least appreciated that. >> especially that one catch that came late in the fourth quarter, right, where he caught the ball in between the legs of the falcons player. >> yes, it was an amazing play, absolutely. i hope that atlanta at least will have a parade for their

shaq, simone, making for a perfect picture at the super bowl. it's monday, february 6th. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." >> that picture is hard to believe. it looks like something photoshopped. >> it really does look photoshopped. >> she has heels on. >> did she, wow. we're going to talk about that photo and what went into that, what went into the making of lady gaga's halftime show, and then some. but really, we're still -- >> can't stop talking about it. >> -- marveling at what the patriots pulled off at the super bowl. the new england patriots' historic win, tom brady leading the pats to four previous come from behind super bowl victories but none like this. the first overtime game in super bowl history. >> it was the biggest comeback in super bowl history. brady was the game's mvp for a record fourth time, and he has more super bowl rings than any other quarterback in nfl history and better believe this one
meant a lot to him. >> everyone back in boston, new england, we love you. you've been with us all year. we're bringing this sucker home! >> he's going to have a chance to bring that sucker home on tuesday to the fans, the trophy will be there during the big parade in boston. overnight fans filled the city landmarks, the boston common and copley square to celebrate, you can see them there in the dark, they streamed into the streets to celebrate the victory, their fifth super bowl win in less than a decade. >> if you're a patriots fan you had to get out there, you had to get out there and be a part of this history tonight. now this might have been a bit of an awkward moment, when nfl commissioner roger goodell congratulated brady after the game. brady missed the first four games of the season after goodell suspended the
quarterback for playing with underinflated footballs, or who can forget deflategate. many fans still haven't forgiven goodell, but it appears there were no hard feelings. >> well -- it was a little awkward of a handshake. >> awkward! >> it was really weird when goodell was on the podium -- >> people were booing him. >> he couldn't wait to get off the stage. >> among the super bowl spectators amazed by incredible new england comeback was abc's own t.j. holmes down on the field after the game. >> well, linsey and kendis, can you believe what we just saw? we just saw tom brady become the first quarterback to win five super bowl titles. we just saw the first overtime ever in super bowl history. we just saw the greatest comeback ever in super bowl history. it's almost too much to take. this game started off all falcons all the time. they got up 28-3. not until the second half, late in the third quarter, did the patriots start to make a move and you could get a sense in this building, in this stadium,
that here comes the brady magic. and sure enough, they tie it in the closing minutes, go into overtime. and tom brady, because of these overtime rules in the nfl, he doesn't even give the falcons a chance to touch the ball. he gets them down the field, touchdown, they score, and that's number five. this was an unbelievable game, an unbelievable night. people were shocked, thought it was unbelievable at the beginning, because the falcons were up so much. what, the patriots about to get blown out? not to be so. this was an incredible night that no one could have predicted, but history made once again by tom brady and the patriots picking up his fifth ring, the first quarterback to ever do it. guys, i just said a lot, but trust me, a lot of us are speechless after that. >> losing his voice too. >> yeah, i believe t.j. is a falcons fan. he spent some time in atlanta. you can understand why he's losing his voice, man. >> all the excitement for him.
>> okay, so tom brady this morning is probably boston's favorite son. and edelman and many others. houston's favorite son was there for the super bowl coin flip. beautiful moment. >> really nice. >> president george h.w. bush did the honors with his wife barbara right behind him. >> it was the first public appearance since their dual hospitalizations a few weeks ago. they got a standing ovation at houston stadium and twitterverse went wild too. twitter also went wild for lady gaga's halftime show. with many celebrities applauding the spectacle. it began with her dive from the roof of nrg stadium where dozens of singers and dancers were waiting to accompany her. she was also backed by 300 lit-up drones, and never stopped moving. ♪
♪ >> so she largely stayed clear of any political statements. as promised, there was a message of inclusion in the show. one of the hits that she sang "born this way" about acceptance for all kinds of people there. >> i was kind of surprised she was able to resist making a political statement. although her music does it in and of itself, really, i guess. >> this was a really cool time lapse. the b-writer for the cincinnati bengals shot this for the sky booth. look how quickly all of that came together and went away, right there in the heart of the stadium. less than 20 minutes, all of that. so pretty cool. >> one patriots fan may just be kicking himself this morning for apparently giving up on his team just a little too prematurely. >> yeah, president trump was watching the game at a party at the trump international golf
club in west palm beach, florida. 8:57 p.m., pats trailing 28-3, he decided he'd had enough as the presidential motorcade pulled away. >> we all know what happened next. the president did later tweet his congratulations. "what an amazing comeback and win by the patriots. tom brady, bob kraft, and coach b. are total winners, wow." >> those are all friends of his. i'm sure he looks forward to welcoming them at the white house. the president firing back at a federal judge in seattle, threatening to deprive the state of california from federal funding if it passes legislation that would provide statewide sanctuary status for immigrants in the country illegally. >> i think it's ridiculous, sanctuary cities, as you know, i'm very much opposed to sanctuary cities, they breed crime, there's a lot of problems. if we have to, we'll defund. we give tremendous amounts of money to california. california in many ways is out of control as you know. obviously the voters agree,
otherwise they wouldn't have voted for me. >> defunding is your weapon of choice -- >> it's a weapon. i don't want to defund the state -- >> you're willing to do it? >> the university of california system could be hit hard by a federal funds ban. the system receives at least $9 billion every year for grants, financial aid and research, nearly one-third of its entire budget. the u.s. senate resumes debate on billionaire gop donor betsy devos as education secretary. vice president pence fully expects devos to be confirmed with his tie-breaking vote. devos faced fierce criticism from teachers unions over her backing of school choice and accusations that she wants to dismantle public education. new details of the attack outside the louvre in paris. police say the suspect, a 29-year-old egyptian national, is refusing to speak with investigators. he was shot in the stomach lunging at soldiers with two machetes. his father, a retired police general, is accusing soldiers of using brute force, insisting his
son is not a terrorist. we're going to switch gears into what was a wonderful moment in an oklahoma high school gym for a special needs student. we're talking about laney frederickson, called into the game at the last second. making the winning basket. the crowd erupting into celebration. >> even players and fans on the other team joined in the appreciation, and of course that video is going viral. there are times when sports transcend just being about a player game, and this is one. look at the crowd, and her, her excitement, love it. coming up in "the skinny," more on lady gaga. she shares behind the scenes videos from the super bowl. and a daring rescue, a group of hikers slide down an icy mountain, the wrong move that led to a 300-foot-fall. plus making a run for it. an escaped steer chased for nearly two hours. we'll tell you what happened next. first take a run at the forecast.
