7:02 am
which we'll be talking about coming up a little bit later in the show. definitely. and on a very serious front, we start with the breaking news. hurricane matthew now a powerful category 4 storm. heading toward jamaica. packing winds of 150 miles an hour. the possibility of up to 25 inches of rain. the big question right now, of course, will it hit the u.s.? >> rob and his team have been tracking the storm closely all night. rob is here with the latest. good morning, sir. >> good is morning, dan. explosive development with t system for about a week. the past two days, this thing has taken off. as it entered the caribbean sea. just a tropical storm thursday. it starts to blossom here. yesterday morning, a category 2 storm. we saw it develop, drop 44 millibars and 80 miles per hour in 24 hours. only two other storms have done that, includiing wilma back in 2005.
7:03 am
two times the rate that qualifies for that. who is in the threat for this? it's pretty low as well. the lowest category 5 on record. there's a tropical storm warning out for colombia. jamaica, a hurricane watch. i think on monday is when you'll feel the impacts of this. cuba on tuesday. into the bahamas wednesday and thursday. look at that. florida now in the cone of uncertainty. so we'll talk more about the potential impacts here in the u.s. here are the computer models. giving you an not in the gulf of mexico. but potential impacts for the eastern u.s. next week. dan and cecilia, back to you. >> you'll be tracking that all weekend. we turn to the race for the white house. a new fox poll showing hillary clinton with a post-debate bump. 61% of registered voters who watched said clinton won. a slight edge for her among likely voters. 43% to 40% over donald trump. add a 3:00 a.m. twitter tirade and it must mean one thing.
7:04 am
washington with the latest. mary, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the election may be around the corner. but this morning, the issue dominating the campaign is donald trump's growing fight with a former miss universe. clinton has been blasting trump all week for shaming alicia machado. and now, seem -- it seems to be keeping him up at night. >> i mean, really, who gets up at 3:00 in the morning to engage in a twitter attack? against a former miss universe. >> reporter: hillary clinton ripping into donald trump over his latest twitter tirade. this time against former beauty queen alicia machado. >> really, why does he do things like that? >> reporter: trump spent friday's wee morning hours bashing machado. calling her disgusting. a con. his worst miss u. alleging she had a sex tape, all before 5:30 a.m. she fired back and called his attacks cheep lies.
7:05 am
intimidate hear. their contentious relationship on display in this old interview. >> she gained a little weight right in the middle. >> i don't think so. >> she's probably right. >> i don't think so. >> reporter: clinton is painting trump as a misogynist. >> his latest twitter meltdown is unhinged even for him. it proves yet again he's temperamentally unfit to be president and commander in chief. defended his early morning tweets, posting, at 3:00 in the morning, at least you know i'll be there, awake, to answer the call. clinton is not letting this one go. needling trump with her own early morning tweet. posting that 3:20 a.m. is as good a time as any to tweet about national service. one of her big issues. the longer trump's feud with machado drags on, the longer it will keep him from the issues. >> we'll talk about that with matt dowd in a few minutes. there's another story this
7:06 am
only challenge. there's this new video tape released despite protests from trump's attorneys. it shows the candidate testifying under oath in a lawsuit he filed against a celebrity chef. abc's devin dwyer is on that story from washington as well. devin, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. these are tapes that the trump campaign did not want you to see. they were released only after abc news appealed directly to the judge. they show a presidential candidate in a setting like we have never seen before. te this morning, a rare look at donald trump giving sworn testimony in a lawsuit he brought. >> i do. >> reporter: trump is suing celebrity chef geoffrey zakarian who backed out of a restaurant deal in trump's new d.c. hotel after trump insulting mexicans in his announcement speech. >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime.
7:07 am
what you were going to say? >> yes. >> reporter: in the deposition, trump accuses zakarian of inflicting damages. >> if they would have gotten out quietly, it would have been a better deal for everyone. they made such a big deal out of it. and they didn't have to make a big deal out of it. >> reporter: he claims his controversial candidacy would have helped business as zakarian's restaurant. >> it's possible i could have helped him. >> help who? >> if he had the restaurant, it would be helped as opposed to hurt. >> why do you think that? >> i mean, i've tapped into something. i've tapped into illegal immigration and other things also. why did the campaign not want these tapes released? >> reporter: well, dan, the optics of this, of any deposition clearly are not great. trump is the most litigious presidential candidate in history. involved in more than 3500 legal actions over the past 30 years by one count. his campaign worried that these videos could be used against him in tv attack ads. dan? >> devin, thank you. for more on the state of the
7:08 am
aforementioned political analyst matthew dowd, who joins us from austin, texas. good morning. >> good morning. >> let me start with one of the headlines. donald trump, it says opens up new line of attack on hillary clinton. her marriage. trump now says he may bring up bill clinton's sexual indiscretions in the next debate. to you think that will actually happen? if he does it, will it be an effective line of attack? >> um, let me pause for a second. no. careful in this. i have always remembered about the glass house philosophy, which is you don't throw stones when you live in a glass house in the case of this. and i was thinking today. it's bonnie parker's birthday today. this is a little bit like clyde barrow saying i'm not as big of a thief as bonnie parker. i think it's a bad strategy. >> don't throw stones. a lot of people saying don't tweet at 3:00 a.m. proof that hillary clinton got
7:09 am
is he shooting himself in the foot with this fight here? >> well, i mean, since monday, since the debate, it's been a downhill slide for donald trump, mainly of his own volition. one thing we all learned when we were younger, don't communicate when you're angry, and nothing good happens after midnight. and in both those cases, donald trump violated both of those. he keeps this story going. he could have ended the story and moved on if he just engaged in it. clinton up by three. essentially, a dead heat. as you look over the latest polling, including the polling from the battleground states, what is your view on the state of the race right now? >> it's a fascinating thing, dan. the equilibrium of the race seems to be a hillary clinton three to four-point lead. every time it closes to even and then it expands and settle there is. and with the electoral college, slight advantage for hillary clinton.
7:10 am
hillary clinton did not change the perceptions of herself. there's a majority of people that still don't like her. a majority of people still don't trust her. people got more unsettled in the aftermath of that debate than donald trump. the race trended back to that three or four-point hillary clinton lead. donald trump has to figure out a way to get this thing from the red zone into the end zone. he has not taken a lead in this race yet. the only way he can do that is probably with the next debate. >> thank you, matt dowd. appreciate your analysis as always. 38 days to go, but who's counting? the next debate just eight days away. it will air live here on abc. our own rock star martha raddatz is co-moderating. and the vice presidential candidates face off on tuesday. george and the entire team will be covering that. i'll be right there. live at 9:00 eastern right here on abc also. >> a lot to look forward to. if you're a political junkie. we move on now though to the female police officer in tulsa

charges in the fatal shooting of an unarmed african-american man. lawyers for betty shelby now say she suffered temporary hearing loss during the incident, which is just one of many shootings setting off protests in recent weeks. clayton sandell has more. clayton, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the tulsa police officer accused of killing terence crutcher has entered her plea. her legal team is hinting as an unusual defense. of pleading not guilty to manslaughter. in the fatal shooting of terence crutcher. >> we have all the confidence that when everything is out there officer shelby will be going home to her family. >> shots fired. >> reporter: shelby's lawyer, scott wood, says the stress of the situation caused the officer to experience a type of deafness, claiming she never heard a fellow cop say he was ready with a less lethal taser
7:12 am
true. but the real question is can that actually be a defense? >> reporter: officer shelby says crutcher was refusing commands. she fired when she thought he was reaching for a weapon. his family accuses shelby of pulling the trigger even though his hands were up and crutcher was unarmed. >> today was the first step towards the justice that we want for terence and his family. >> reporter: this as p shooting near san diego. protesters gathering on the streets for alfred olango. his sister says she called police to help her brother. but when they arrived, they say he refuses commands. then points something at the officers. they fire. killing him. that turned out to be this cigarette device. >> you killed my brother in front of me! >> reporter: now, those protests sneer san diego overnight were
