7:01 am
and the battle at bristol. the famous motor speedway transformed into a massive college football stadium ready to host a record crowd. it's tennessee versus virginia tech. we're live at the track for a great gridiron pit stop. and good saturday morning, everyone. we want to thank you for joining us this weekend as there is our own rob marciano -- hey, rob -- surrounded by fans at the bristol motor speedway in bristol, tennessee. they're expecting the largest college football crowd ever and can i say maybe a record in beer consumption. they have purchased over 500,000 -- a half million beers for this particular game. >> a half million beers. >> a half million beers. >> i'm not sure that should be legal. >> well, you know, it's tennessee, everybody, but the raceway is going to be
7:02 am
field as tennessee takes on virginia tech. it's going to be an epic game in more ways than one. >> we can guarantee rob marciano will consume zero of those. >> he's on the clock. >> much more to come from bristol. but we're going to start here with the danger and deep inconvenience facing hundreds of thousands who own cell phones owned and made by samsung. >> specifically the galaxy note 7 phone. the federal government is now saying that if you own one of these phones, you should turn it off immediately and trade it in because it can burst into flames. >> yeah, and as you can imagine, this is an especially precarious situation if your battery catches fire while you're on a plane as this simulation video from the faa demonstrates quite vividly, so abc's gloria rivera has more now from reagan national airport in d.c. hey, gloria, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. that's right. our own abc aviation expert calling this potentially a worst case devastating scenario if one of these devices
7:03 am
as many as 2.5 million of these devices already out there. they all need to come back in this massive global recall. this morning, technology giant samsung planning a massive recall. this after an unprecedented warning from the federal government urging customers to power down their galaxy note 7s and exchange them now. this is the latest in what has been a nightmare week for the world's largest smartphone manufacturer. earlier this week this jeep engulfed in flames reportedly >> it was very surprising to me how quick the dash caught on fire. >> reporter: the cpsc urging anyone who currently owns one of the devices to power them down and stop charging or using the device. that alert going even further than the faa's statement asking any note 7 users to keep their phones completely powered off during flight. lithium ion cells are a massive concern for aviation officials due to potential explosion and fire like these tests.
7:04 am
i mean, lithium ion batteries power our lives and as the technology keeps going, sometimes you get manufacturers that just aren't up to speed. >> reporter: samsung says it has confirmed 35 cases so far of its batteries failing leading to burned phones and flames. >> consumers should stop using >> reporter: consumers say there is more headache here and inconvenience while samsung is promising to replace the devices, customers say that process has been difficult, far from straightforward and makes live difficult for so many who say they just can't get day for the work without their phone, dan. >> yeah, massive inconvenience, gloria, thank you. the presidential race and a new comment from hillary clinton overnight getting a lot of attention, maybe not the kind of attention she wants. speaking to wealthy donors at a fund-raising featuring barbra streisand clinton flat out
7:05 am
trump, meanwhile, is defending his repeated praise of russian president vladimir putin and abc's devin dwyer is covering it all from washington, d.c. good morning. >> reporter: the rhetoric from both candidates now getting more extreme. donald trump saying overnight hillary clinton can murder someone in broad daylight and get away with it while clinton calling half of trump's supporters deplorables. overnight at a new york fund-raiser, hillary clinton lashing out at trump supporters. basket of deplorables. they're racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, islamaphobic, you name it. >> reporter: the trump campaign calling the comment deplorable as he defended his affection for russia's vladimir putin. >> oh, donald trump likes putin. and putin likes trump.
7:06 am
gentleman, but you know what, he's been nice to me. the difference between me and my opponent on vladimir putin and in all negotiations is that i negotiate by creating leverage. >> reporter: but scrutiny of trump's embrace of the authoritarian regime is getting more intense after first praising putin this week -- >> he is very much of a leader, far more than our president has been a leader. >> reporter: -- trump then defending russia against explosive allegations that hackers broke into dnc computers. >> it's probably unlikely. i think maybe -- maybe the democrats are putting that out. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: that interview running on state run russian tv contradicting top u.s. intelligence officials who say russian involvement in the hack is all but certain. after meeting for nearly two hours with national security experts, hillary clinton appeared flabbergasted. >> every day that goes by, this
7:07 am
reality television show. it's not a serious presidential campaign. >> reporter: now the clinton campaign this morning trying to clarify that deplorables comment saying clearly not everyone supporting trump is hateful but a spokesman tweeting that they, quote, appear to make up half his crowd when you observe the tone of his events. dan and paula. >> all right. devin dwyer, we want to thank you and joining us now from austin, texas, is abc news political analyst matthew dowd. matthew, good morning to you. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> so, not long ago hillary clinton said the last d.c. and yet yesterday she calls half of trump's supporters in a basket of deplorables. do you think this will haunt her? >> well, first i have to say when i first heard basket of deplorables, it reminded something you'd hear in a "despicable me" movie when like gru can't find his minions he calls dr. nefario and says get me the basket of deplorables. i think in the book of bad campaign ideas, there is a
7:08 am
know -- obama did this in 2008 when he said they cling to their guns, when mitt romney talked about the 47%. it's never a good idea to go after voters even if you believe a segment of voters is that way in this. i think this will be a bad few days for her. it will ultimately pass over, but the campaign, i know, doesn't want their candidate going after voters. >> okay, so let's talk, though, about donald trump's repeated praise of vladimir putin. this is where the clinton campaign really wants us to be focused right now notwithstanding the basket of deplorables. that said, though, for the standard-bearer of the party of reagan to be praising a russian autocrat because he's nice to him, how big a deal is that, and is it going to matter in the end with swing voters? >> well, dan, amazing situation. we've had so many firsts in this campaign, but actually going on russian television and praising an autocratic dictator of the country and criticizing the president of the united states
7:09 am
you remember jane fonda attacked the united states in northern vietnam and was not heard of for 10 years, 150 years of that. i think it's problematic, but in the end i don't think donald trump's voters really care. they're probably shrugging their shoulders and say it's great that putin likes trump and trump likes putin. move on. i think ultimately this will have to be answered. both of these things, the basket of deplorables and this, will have to be answered in the first debate. >> well, matt dowd, you are anything but deplorable. we love you. >> thank you. this morning. >> that's good. that's a high bar. >> thanks, matt. we want to move now to the new concerns about zika here in the u.s. miami beach is spraying for mosquitoes this weekend as the number of pregnant women infected with the virus rises, and the cdc now saying that the money to fight zika is all but gone. abc's eva pilgrim joins us in studio with the very latest. eva, good morning. >> good morning, paula. concerns and questions this morning about the safety of an insecticide now being used to fight zika in miami beach.
7:10 am
aerial spraying wouldn't be effective in miami beach because of the wind and tall buildings. but now as more infected mosquitoes are found, the cdc and state recommending it. it's a full-on aerial assault, the battle to wipe out zika in miami beach ramping up, but it's what's being used to kill the mosquitoes that could be carrying the virus that this morning has residents upset. >> it could be extremely effective in killing not only the mosquitoes, the intended ecosystem there. >> reporter: residents taking to the streets with signs. >> we don't want no spray. >> reporter: protesting the newest weapon in the fight against zika in miami beach, aerial spraying. this as there are 56 nontravel-related cases in florida. 84 pregnant women have been infected with the zika virus and now the city finding a fourth mosquito pool testing positive for infected mosquitoes. >> we are concerned that the naled has actually more
7:11 am
to avert. >> reporter: naled is designed to attack mosquitoes in flight killing them on contact. while u.s. health officials say it's safe, naled has been banned in europe since 2012. health officials here in the u.s. say naled is only toxic in high doses pointing out that an ultra low dose is being used in the aerial sprayings but that is not easing the minds of thousands of concerned residents who want to know more about what's being sprayed over them and their loved ones. >> i just want to know more chemicals. >> reporter: the spraying comes as the head of the cdc warns that they are essentially out of money in the fight against the virus, this as congress looks to end the gridlock over a zika funding bill that may get another vote next week. for now the aerial sprayings continue. the next one scheduled to happen early tomorrow morning. >> i can see why people are worried about that. eva, thank you. we're going to turn now to a big twist this morning in a case made famous by the netflix
