1:01 am
couple of rough gaffe-filled weeks. cnn's sara murray traveling with the trump campaign, she has the latest from north carolina. >> reporter: good morning. this is supposed to be the week where donald trump was sticking to the script, but instead, he set up yet another political firestorm with his comment. >> hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the second amendment, by the way, if she gets to pick -- if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. although the second amendment people, maybe there is, i don't know. >> reporter: now, the clinton campaign can seize on that remark, as an apparent threat against hillary clinton saying that donald trump is inciting violence. this is the kind of support that
1:02 am
donald trump needs. he is lagging behind hillary clinton in key battleground states in polls but it's offhand comments like that that has given some voters including republicans pause as to whether or not they can support the gop nominee. as to whether or not he heads to two battleground states, virginia, florida which show him neck and neck with the sunshine state. and the national rifle association quickly weighing in on second amendment controversy tweeting its support for trump. the nra also launching a new ad against hillary clinton painting her as an out of touch elitist who would leave gun owners defenseless. clinton focusing on her own message, not commenting on trudge's remark. and nra expanding staff particularly in red states like georgia where they see trump
1:03 am
lagging in the polls. >> reporter: ryan and alison, hillary clinton heading to iowa for the first time since the iowa caucuses in february. she's running close to donald trump there. a new poll shows she's ahead in points after what donald trump said at a rally in north carolina on tuesday. now, she has not commented at all about the second amendment charges that he made, saying reporters at the second amendment rally may rally against her. but tim kaine said this. >> nobody seeking a leadership position, especially. trying to broaden her appeal to
1:04 am
republicans who have been turned off by donald trump. she'll be doing that today in iowa and thursday when she delivers her own economic message in detroit. today marks 90 days exactly before election day in november. ryan and alison. >> jeff, thank you. this morning, a blizzard of reaction to donald trump second amendment comment. the new york daily news proclaiming this isn't a joke any more. declaring that trump must end his campaign for the white house. connecticut democratic senator chris murphy who backs tightened gun control, quote, don't treat this as a political misstep. it is an assassination threat. seriously upping the possibility of a national tragedy and acrisis. and then there's the former cia chief, general michael hayden one who signed a letter condemning trump's candidacy. >> when i heard that for the first time, that was more than a speed bump, all right?
1:05 am
that's actually a very arresting comment. if someone else would have said that outside the hall, he'd be in the back of a police wagon with the secret service questioning him. >> listen to the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani slam the clinton campaign and the media for buying its claims. >> they spin out that what he meant by that was that it was a joke. and that what he meant by that was that they would kill her. now, okay, now, to buy that, you have to be corrupt. because if you said that to me, i would say to you, are you out of your mind? i saw it. i heard it, i know what it meant. >> nobody in that room thought
1:06 am
anything other than what you just said. this is a political movement. this is a strong powerful movement, the second amendment. you know, hillary wants to take your guns away. she wants to leave you unprotected in your home. this is a tremendous political movement. the nra, as you know, endorse me, wayne and chris and all of the people over there. by the way, i just saw, they tweeted out basically they agree 100% with what i said. and there can be no other interpretation. even reporters have told me, i mean, give me a break. >> meantime, house speaker paul ryan that second amendment remarks sound like a joke on "bad" and hope they clear things up fast. in the home state of wisconsin, we're affirming his support for the trump/pence ticket. he made clear endorsement is not a blank check and called for the end of divisiveness without mentioning trump by name. >> in times as uncertain as these, it's easy to resort to
1:07 am
division. it's simple to prey on people's fears. that stuff sells, but it doesn't stick. it doesn't last. most of all, it doesn't work. >> despite trump's much publicized he e ed he is sa ta trump to win we get more from manu raju. >> reporter: paul ryan in a race in wisconsin that was never expected to be close but only got national attention after donald trump said he would not endorse paul ryan. and suddenly, paul nehlen who is not known, a political novice, seized on that division between the party areas nominee and the house speaker. but it really amounted to much of nothing. trump later endorsed paul ryan and paul ryan won handedly. one reason why he won handedly,
1:08 am
donald trump is not popular in this division. but ted cruz won overwhelmingly in the april primary. that's one reason why paul ryan is not afraid to criticize donald trump. i asked paul ryan at his press conference after the primary, what he thinks about donald trump comments about second amendment enthusiasts possibly taking matters into their own hands, and this is what he had to say. >> i heard about the sec amendment quote. it sounds like a joke gone bad. i hope he clears it up. >> reporter: today showcases the strength, the party establishment over the tea party insurcgents seeing it happen rae after race. and tim feels kamp last week. and the senate majority leader defeated the candidate. he did not want to run in that race as well. showed that the party leadership
1:09 am
knows how to win on the congressional level. but when it comes to the presidential level, that's a whole different problem, ryan and alison. >> hillary clinton is ready to give a big speech on her jobs plan today in iowa. she's likely to be talking about spending on infrastructure and hiking the minimum wage to $15 an hour while criticizing the economic plan that donald trump outlines later this week. a study from my moody's analytics shows that if clinton wins in november, the economy would add 10.4 million jobs over four years. that's a big jump from the 7.2 under current law. gdp would rise 2.7% over an estimate of 2.3%. moody's is a leading group but the leader of that group is mark sandy who donated to the clinton campaign last year and a former adviser to john mccain.

1:16 am
nemesis le clos, he retired back in 2012. he had had a turbulent time away from the pool but he was almost at his best last night, took his 20th gold medal. he put his finger in the air and said i am number one. and there was a touching moment where he went over and touched his newborn baby boomer on the cheek. before returning to the pool to do the same for the men on the 200 meter to take his 21st gold medal and it really was a sight to behold. we saw kati ledecky taking the 200 meter freestyle against the tough competition. i'll tell you, almost middle of out on it towards the end. she's the first to win the 200 and 300 meter freestyle, the first since 1972. but i just want to bring you a quick update in what's happening

in women's football last night. we saw the world cup winning team go through to the quarterfinals, but it wasn't quite in the way that they wanted. they finished 2-2 to colombia who took the first of the competition. and they stumbled early on. a very embarrassing miss that keeper hope solo with the ball between the legs. and they were actually leading 2-1 and let that slip away to finish 2-2. looking to defend their gold medal in the week to come. not a good day if you're world number one serena williams she crashed out of the tournament 0 world number 20. and i'll tell you what, is this not what we're accustomed to seeing from serena williams. she hit five double faults in one game. says that lady that won 22 grand slams. she looked to be clutching her

1:46 am
waved his finger in the air and said i am number one before a touching moment going over and kissing his son boomer. getting back in the pool and doing it all over again with the men's 200 meter stealing the 24th gold medal. and in those golds was a kati ledecky, she won the third medal of the tournament. the second gold yesterday in the 200 meter freestyle. these now the first to win the 200 and 400 meter freestyle in the same olympics since 1972. now, i just want to bring you a brief update on the women's football. some good news, but it was a mixed night for the ladies. they are through now to the quarterfinals of the women's competition. but not in the way they planned. they drew 2-2 against colombia. colombia taking their first point ever in the olympic games. they stumbled earlier, an
1:47 am
embarrassing goal led by keeper hope solo. they finished 2-2. they are through looking to defend their 2012 olympic gold medal. so a good night in swimming and gymnastics but not in the tennis. serena williams, the world number one crashed out yesterday against the word number 20 elena svitolina. this wasn't the williams that we know. she had 34 unforced errors, five double fault, if you believe in one game. now what was wrong? well, she was clutching her shoulder and mouthing somebody something gone wrong there. the champion out of the competition is the men's number one novak djokovic. now, you may have seen it floating around on social media a couple of pictures of the diving pool at the olympic games turning completely green. there it is. on monday, it was blue. on tuesday, it was green. the competitors in the pool said it was so bad under the water that they actually couldn't see
1:48 am
one another. the organizers came out, they tested the water. they said that there was no risk at all that it was completely clean. but still, no one quite knows what contributed to the green mess you can see in front of us. before i go, i just want to bring your attention to one picture we've seen in the past few hours. it is of the two standout stars in the swimming pool. kati ledecky and michael phelps. taken ten years ago. michael phelps signing an autograph for kati ledecky, just 9 years ago old. and now topping the united states in the swimming pool. >> gold all around for them. thanks so much, christina macfarlane. chaos erupting last night in ferguson, missouri, on the second anniversary of michael brown's death. shots ringing out after a protester was hit by a car. according to police, that protester was trying to block traffic. the driver of the vehicle is

1:55 am
dangerous loophole. a child is in intensive care in johnson city, tennessee, and a county fair is being forced to shut down all of its rides, this just one day after a 10-year-old boy died from a neck injury after riding a 120-foot tall water slide in kansas city, kansas. it's the second water park accident in just two days. the concern now, there's no set standards for safety regulations at these parks. there are more than 400 amusement parks in the united states with more than 330 million visitors per year. no federal agency is responsible for oversight. it's up to the states to regulate, but some are more thick than others. the trade group that represents amusement parks tells cnn serious incidents are extremely rare. the most recent data from 2014 shows of the millions of people who visited amusement parks in the united states, there were more than 1100 reported injured. but that number does not account
