7:02 am
abc's alex marquardt is on the front lines. alex, what's happening right now? >> reporter: good morning, we've been watching this battle for mosul play out in the valley with the forces up here in the hills and the coalition jets above, pummeling those isis militants below on the first day of this battle that will determine the future of isis. the battle for mosul beginning. an estimated 30,000 kurdish and iraqi troops fightin stronghold. those kurdish fighters zeroing in their mortars on isis targets below. targets selected and observed by american forces, including these soldiers from the 101st airborne division. a critical role played by some of the around thousand u.s. troops in iraq. that was one of the rockets heading out into the plains around the city of mosul. the sun has come up, the pace of fighting has picked up, as well. we've been able to see and hear
7:03 am
for the first time, we're hearing gunfire as well, meaning the two sides are now closely engaging each other. the view of the fighting increasingly obscured by a thick, black haze. likely from oil and tire fires is the by isis to provide cover. if isis loses mosul, they lose their last foothold in iraq and their biggest prize to date. it would deal a devastating blow to the group. for morngs the u.s. and scale plans to retake mosul from isis, hoping to demoralize their enemy and energize resistance in this city. it's unclear if they will amount a full defense of the city or cross into syria where there is more territory. they're expecting 1 million people to flee the fighting. could be one of the biggest humanitarian crises this year. george. >> thank you, alex.
7:04 am
for more on this right now. and martha, we have seen the public buildup to this battle for months. as alex pointed out, this is so critical because mosul is the last stronghold for isis in iraq. >> exactly right, george. >> reporter: but the u.s. feels confident that the iraqis will succeed although this will not be fast. this will be a huge step toward defeating isis governing and stabilizing that area will be a challenge. isis in syria is a much more complicated problem. you don't have a unified fighting force there. and very few u.s. forces to help them. this will be the challenge for the next president, george. >> martha raddatz, thank you very much. now to the race for the white house and the attack on a republican office in north carolina. the local headquarters fire-bombed. and a nearby building spray-painted.
7:05 am
raleigh, north carolina as authorities search for who is responsible. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. authorities are here this morning trying to figure out who did this. there are all sorts of suggestions. the good thing is no one was hurt. police believe someone threw a bottle with flammable material through this front window of the orange county republican party headquarters sometime between saturday night and sunday morning. the fire inside burned furniture and caused smoke damage but went out on its own. much larger. >> this is a horrific, horrific act of political terrorism. >> reporter: this is, of course, a key swing state in the presidential election where polls show the race is tight. republican presidential candidate, donald trump, responded on twitter immediately, saying, animals representing hillary clinton and dems in north carolina, just fire-bombed our office in orange county
7:06 am
represented the democratic nominee, who condemned the attack. they called it horrific and unacceptable and she is grateful that everybody is safe. >> we have a lot of cleanup to do. >> reporter: they're cleaning up graffiti that was next door. orb else. >> or else what? because we're not going anywhere. >> reporter: the graffiti was sprayed on the other side of the building. not the front for some reason. the democrats here are condemning the attacks a raising money for the workers here. in a few short hours, they have raised $13,000 online. jovrn? george? >> the latest now from donald trump. he's fighting hard from behind. bashing hillary clinton, the media, even "saturday night live" as he doubles down on claims the election is rigged. abc's tom llamas is tracking it all from trump tower. good morning, tom. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. donald trump has yet to provide any evidence the election will be rigged in november.
7:07 am
multiple groups are out to get him. donald trump's now peddling a new conspiracy theory. to explain his rigged election prediction. >> the election is being rigged by corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect hillary clinton president. >> reporter: over the weekend, in less than 48 hours, trump mentioning the election being rigged more than 20 times. >> the process is rigged. it's a rigged election. it's a rigged system, and they take these lies and put them on front pages. >> reporter: trump, referring to the growing number of women accusing him of sexual misconduct.the growing number o accusing him of sexual misconduct. the republican nominee seeming to attack the looks of jessica leads, who says trump groped her on a flight in the '80s. >> believe me, she would not be my first choice, that i can tell you. >> reporter: trump also suggesting some of the polling
7:08 am
system working against him. tweeting, the election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media, pushed by crooked hillary. not all republicans are on board. a spokeswoman for speaker paul ryan saying our democracy relies on confidence in election results, and the speaker is fully confident the states will carry out this election with integrity. even the vice presidential candidate taking a different approach from his running mate. >> we' r >> reporter: as pence tries to soften the tone, trump is growing wilder in his accusations. now questioning if hillary clinton was on drugs during the last debate. >> we should take a drug test prior, because i don't know what is going on with her. but at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning. >> reporter: this morning, hillary clinton's campaign is out with a new ad. it's called america's bully.
7:09 am
time, including biff from "back to the future" and the members of cobra kai from "the karate kid." the clinton campaign says trump has insulted 274 people out on the campaign trail. trump has said he's not a bully, he's a counterpuncher. robin. >> tom, thank you. as hillary clinton stepped out of the spotlight this weekend, wikileaks released another batch of e-mails thought to be from her top aides. abc's cecilia vega joins us now with all those details for us. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: the clinton campaign calling this a crime reminiscent of watergate, but worse. 1,900 e-mails were released this weekend. we're talking about a slow leak. every day a new batch. and the clinton campaign knows this could be a problem for them every day until election day. this morning, thousands more e-mails appearing to show the inner workings of hillary clinton's campaign. wikileaks releasing the newest
7:10 am
campaign chairman john podesta's hacked e-mails. one showing just how much clinton's team struggled to get her to apologize over the private server controversy. a top adviser writing, her inability to just do a national interview and communicate genuine feelings of remorse and regret is now, i fear, becoming a character problem. more so than honesty, i see no downside why her actually just saying, look, i'm sorry. i think it will take so much air out of this. podesta agreeing, saying, trying to figure out how to get her there and best way to execute. ultimately, clinton did apologize. >> as i look back at it now, though it was allowed, i should have used two accounts. one for personal. one for work-related e-mails. that was a mistake. i'm sorry about that. i take responsibility. >> reporter: abc news has not independently verified the e-mails.
7:11 am
responding to individual documents. instead, accusing the russians of orchestrating the hack to help donald trump win. >> i don't give credence to the dumped documents because i don't know if they're accurate. >> reporter: a slow drip that has not let up. 12,000 e-mails so far. everything from when clinton should laugh during debates. >> whoo, okay. >> reporter: to her private speeches to wall street that seem to contradict her public positions. even this one, claiming clinton told a private trade union gathering that extreme environmentalists need to, quote, get a life. and donald trump has questioned whether the russians were behind the hacks. he has even questioned whether there was a hack at all, but his running mate, mike pence, seemed to take a different stand saying there's no question, george, that evidence suggests russia's involvement.
7:12 am
community. thank you very much. let's bring in matthew dowd. and martha raddatz for more. three weeks and a day before the election. our polls show a four-point lead for hillary clinton. no question, donald trump behind right now. he needs major shift to get back in the race. >> when you looked at the race a month or so ago, i said it was about a field goal. today, we're in the final less than 22 days of the course of the race, it's as if he's behind by four or five runs in the ninth inning. it's a much different thing. can he come it will take a big debate. right now this race falls in about a six-point hillary clinton lead. it looks like it's headed towards an obama 2008 win than an obama 2012 win. >> martha, you spent time with voters in a key state of pennsylvania. one of the surprises i think you found is that that "access hollywood" tape didn't turn out for at least these voters to you spoke with to be a real game-changer. game-changer. >> what the voters said backed up our abc poll. they may not like what he said. may not think his apology was
7:13 am
but many of the voters i talked to said, that it would not affect their decision. these were men and women, and one man telling me he was not surprised by the tape, and one woman saying she thought it was? funny. another saying she's heard that talk before from men and women. there were voters who were disturbed by the tape, but seemed to fall into the one-third in the poll who would not likely have voted for him anyway. >> matthew, pretty clear from our poll as enthusiasm for donald trump is down. he's lashing out at, the media. clinton. but claiming the whole election is rigged. >> that's what i think is important to focus on in this race, george. it's fundamentally not the undecided voters. what's hillary clinton's fundamentally it's change. and the tape is her enthusiasm level is up to what donald trump's supporters level is. that's a major change. it has caused a two-point lead
7:14 am
watch the enthusiasm number. >> he's trying to rile up the base. >> they're both in the final 22 days of this, and they will be focused on their base and not undecided voters. >> thank you both. final presidential debate is wednesday on abc. i'll be anchoring our live coverage starting at 9:00 p.m. eastern. also this morning, now to new backlash from those recent clown scares across the country. we're two weeks away from halloween. target is announcing their pulling some of their clown costumes. abc's t.j. holmes is here with that story. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: get this, on target's website, you can still get, as an adult, a michael myers outfit with a fake butcher knife, but not a creepy clown costume. in this season where you're supposed to have scary fun, this creepy clown phenomena is causing some people and retailers to adjust.
7:15 am
gone international. bizarre bozo sightings caught on camera are lighting up social media feeds around the world. back home, this video on live leak apparently showing a knife-wielding clown approaching a texas home. this clown on the back of a detroit bus. with halloween just two weeks ago, these encounters are helping the scary clown masks are flying off the shelves. national costume retailer halloween express says its clown costume sales are up 239% this year. retailers, target tells abc news it's removing clown masks from its stores and scaling back inventory online. saying this decision was made out of sensitivity to the issue at hand. real or not, it's a creepy time to be a clown. >> look at this clown. >> reporter: even ronald mcdonald is keeping a low profile. with creepy clowns reported in at least 40 states.
7:16 am
>> hey, you the clown that was scaring those kids back there? >> reporter: as far as ronald mcdonald goes, they're scaling back the appearances. saying, hey, just being sensitive. and again overwhelmingly, police say these are pranksters doing all these things. social media causes it to spread like crazy. >> this close to halloween. all right, t.j., thank you. to amy for the morning's other top stories. starting with the police shooting suspect on the run. >> that's right. and an urgent search is under way for the man accused of shooting a fa fairbanks, alaska then stealing his police car. walking to the officer's side of the car with a gun drawn before opening fire. the sergeant is in stable condition. new video shows the aftermath of a horrifying crash in san diego. a truck plunged 60 feet off a bridge to a park below killing four people. the driver, a navy sailor is charged with drunk driving and vehicular homicide.

7:35 am
i think our comedy evolved. i really hope xheed cans can turn back into a punchline and make america laugh again at trump. that's part of the problem. donald trump not liking being laughed at. lashing out. now "snl." >> he used to be in on the joke. had fun with it. we have seen him turn on comedians in the past.
7:36 am
you can see him folding it into what he's trying to say. >> he may not win new votes. his base is probably going to love it. >> i wrote an article about how ridiculous this was and his supporters are fighting me on twitter saying he's right. the aun fair show. even sarah palin. no one criticize more. laughed at it, rolled with the punches. that's what you should do. america, we have a rich tradition of political come did i. it's so important, this is shortening my life expectancy, this campaign. >> politicians have, in the past, used comedy to help them and broaden the base. >> absolutely. we saw hillary clinton go on

7:40 am
the controversy. 49ers quarterback off the bench, getting his first start since he began the national anthem protest. his team lost, 45-16. stephen a. smith joins us. kaepernick showed up. he had a muhammad ali t-shirt. he knelt down. other teammates did as well. let's take a listen to how he was received when he stepped on the fiel [ crowd booing ] >> i don't think many are surprised by that reaction on the road, you're usually booed any way. then what he's been doing. explain the environment around the game. >> it was very divisive, obviously, robin. you have some people believing that he's just un-american. that he is not what america is all about. they believe that he's disrespecting the flag, disrespecting the national
7:41 am
disrespecting what america supposedly stands for. as a result, they have a lot of vitriol for him. another segment of the populus want to applaud him, thank him for his bravery, courageousness. they wanted to take selfies with him after the game. talk to him. it's one of those situations where, it just heightens and illuminates that we're a divided nation right now. it's incredibly polarizing times. we all know it. we watch not the his situation, essentially, epitomizes that. i wasn't surprised at all by what i saw from the fans in buffalo. they just felt the way they felt. others feel otherwise. >> he seems pretty unfazed by the criticism. >> those are rare occurrences right now, i think people realize the impact of what's going on. like i said from the beginning, i knew the consequences of what could come with this.
7:42 am
>> bigger issue for him now as player is the play of himself and his team. >> there's no question about it. the 49ers stink. let's be clear about that. listen, he didn't play miserably. at the same time, 13 for 29 for 187 yards is not that impressive, though he made some plays with his feet. the 49ers don't have playmakers on offense pip don't know if they have players on defense. they looked like a franchise right now. they are the worse he plays, he'll get more attention. >> stephen a. smith unplugged. let's move on to the flight ban for samsung phones. u.s. air safety officials are issuing an emergency order that prohibits people from taking the galaxy note 7 on planes. gio benitez has the story. passengers trying to fly with
7:43 am
penalties. >> we're talking veer potential punishments. up to $180,000 if fins. up to ten years in prison. that's if you sneak these phones sboonon to these planes. even if you get them on the checked baggage, they don't want them. we're learning new information about the batteries. the troubled batteries that are causing the problems. "the wall street journal" is saying samsung was using self-testing. doing their own testing instead of using third party testing like other phones. no doubt, a lot of people will >> no doubt. also, let's be realistic, if you own one of these phones, you're traveling, what are you going to do? are there suggestions? >> we're learning right now, samsung, robin, is going to be at some of the busiest airports. probably here at laguardia. samsung reps will be here. they'll exchange it. but samsung is sending boxes to
7:44 am
boxes. pop the phone in, send it back. they don't want it here. if tsa sees it, they'll send you home. now the a breakfast staple in jeopardy. o.j., orange juice? once the morning's beverage of choice for so many is plunging in popularity. american consumption is down 13%. what's up with o.j.? >> o.j. is going the way of spam, at least i zbloe, yeah. >> something you used to enjoy for breakfast, now, not so much. the primary reason is health. for years, orange jus was marketed as part of a complete breakfast. recent years, evidence suggests it's not as healthy as we thought. it's high in fructose. a lot of carbs. and the poor citrus farmers have the trifecta. people are not as interested in
7:45 am

>> well, my message is really that, you know, law enforcement officers are human beings. and that they can come to us and they can trust us. and so, i engage with them and i want them to to understand that, you know, there's a journey to success. and so, we talk about that. talk about making positive choices. >> and, we thank you for that, because so many times, when we're in the media and showing stories that's going on, you know what's going on around the country, it's wonderful to how do we bring this -- how do we bridge this gap between some in the community and what's going on with police officers? >> well, it's really just stepping out and showing that we're human. and engaging with the community. and so here, the stafford county sheriff's office, we focus on community policing. part of that zbegt out and dancing with the kids and engaging in ways they wouldn't expect.

8:44 am
i believe that what i have to say snow when i speak around the country is a better message than it was before. >> for you guys, going splik, i really don't think you had a choice. it's kind of a no mf brainer from a public health perspective to go public. you absolutely both saved countless lives. i decided to do it because i, as a result of having this panic attack, found meditation, which was useful to me. i felt that, too, was a public health message. medita when you have become distracted and start again and again and again. and anybody can do that. >> thank you for making your mess your message. and for sharing your something. with us. ? so remember to always be kind ? >> that is a perfect way for me to tend first season and full disclosure, elizabeth was supposed to join us. duty called at the last second.
