tv Good Morning America Weekend Edition ABC February 7, 2016 7:00am-8:01am PST
good morning, america. it was fight night in new hampshire. the gloves came off in the latest debate. >> if you noticed, he didn't answer your question. >> candidates on the attack. the big target of the night, marco rubio. >> he doesn't have the experience to be president of the united states. >> rubio fighting back. >> your state got hit by a massive snowstorm two weeks ago, you didn't want to go back. they had to shame you into going back. >> but who pressed repeat? >> he knows exactly what he's doing. he knows what he's doing. >> there it is, the memorized 25-second speech. >> donald trump, shushing jeb bush. >> be quiet. a lot of the time -- a lot of the time. >> and attacking the audience. >> that's all of his donors and special interests. that's what it is. >> the on-stage apology. >> ben, i'm sorry. >> not accepted.
>> we can see what happened. everybody can see what happened. >> we've got all the highlights of this fiery night. plus, that traffic jam on stage. meanwhile, bernie sanders takes late night center stage. >> democratic socialism. >> what's the difference? >> huge difference. >> your complete political wrapup right here on "gma." hey, good morning, everybody. the debate, of course, dominating the news. but there is of course, another big story. i hear something called super bowl 50 is just hours away. >> yes, it's a huge story, right? an epic matchup of two great teams and two fantastic quarterbacks. we're talking the broncos versus the panthers. peyton manning against cam newton. manning, the future hall of famer, up against the league's up and comer, 13 years his junior. we have pregame analysis. we'll take you inside the hottest, most star-studded pregame parties. all coming up on "gma."
>> full coverage of super bowl sunday coming up. we'll start with the republican debate, which aired right here on abc overnight. plenty of fireworks. perhaps serious consequences for some of the candidates with the new hampshire primary just two days away. >> we have team coverage. we'll start with jon karl right there in the debate hall. hi, jon. >> reporter: good morning, paula. it was a raucous night. it was a good night for the three governors on the stage. they had been stuck on the back of the pack. each of them broke through in a do or die debate for all of them. back at center stage, donald trump responded to questions from his rivals of whether he has the temperament to be the commander in chief. >> i actually think i have the best temperament. i'm not the one with the quick trigger. other people up here would be much faster. >> reporter: ted cruz said this week trump was so intemperate he might nuke denmark. asked about that, he backed off.
>> you said he doesn't have the temperament to be commander in chief do you stand by those words? >> i think that is an assessment the voters are going to make. >> if you noticed, he didn't answer your question. >> reporter: cruz apologized to ben carson, after his campaign wrongly claimed that the doctor was going drop out right before the iowa caucuses. >> when this transpired, apologized to him then. and i do so now. ben, i'm sorry. >> we can see what happened. everybody can see what happened. you can make your own judgment. >> dr. carson, thank you. >> reporter: the biggest target of the night was marco rubio. he's been on a roll in new hampshire. he ran into a buzz saw named chris christie. >> you have not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable. you just simply haven't. >> i think the experience is not just what you did but how it worked out. this country already has a debt problem. we don't need to election someone that has experience of running up and destroying the credit rating of a state. >> when you're a governor of the state, the president of the united states, the memorized 30-second speech doesn't solve
one problem. and when the worst natural disaster in your state's history hits you, they expect you to rebuild their state. that's what i've done. none of that happens on the floor of the united states senate. it's a fine job. i'm glad you ran for it. but it doesn't prepare you for president of the united states. >> reporter: perhaps the real story of the night was the governors, christie, kasich, and bush. dominated much of the debate. >> we have to solve problems in america by coming together, republicans and democrats. americans first. party and ideology second in the second backseat of this country. that's what we need to do. >> reporter: jeb bush went after trump on the issue of imminent domain. until trump shushed him. >> let me talk. quiet. a lot of times -- a lot of times -- [ crowd booing ] >> reporter: trump backing in the boos did something never seen before in a presidential debate. he attacked the audience. >> that's all of his donors and special interests out there. [ crowd booing ] so -- that's what it is. >> reporter: i have never seen
that before. a candidate on the stage attacking the debate audience. with just two days to go until the new hampshire primary, the candidates are hitting the trail hard. i count 15 events today, that's all before the super bowl. >> and how many times have you said i have never seen that before on the campaign trail in season? too many to count. >> it's been the theme of this campaign. >> thank you, jon. it was uncomfortable at times for marco rubio. he was the biggest target of the night. he had all the momentum going into the debate. the other candidates did everything they could to derail him. david wright joins us from the debate hall with much more. hi, david. >> reporter: hi, paula. this was a lost opportunity at best for marco rubio after a strong showing in iowa. his big moment to shine. many would say that he choked. it all started with david muir's first question to chris christie. >> i do want to ask governor christie. you said fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.
when it comes to electing a first-term senator. >> reporter: after that, governor chris christie came out swinging hard after marco rubio. >> first, let's remember something, every morning when a united states senator gets up, they think about what kind of speech can they give. every morning when i get up, i think what kind of problem do i need to solve for the people who actually elected me? >> reporter: shot after shot. >> that's not leadership, that's truancy. >> reporter: christie pummeled rubio for more than seven straight minutes. >> wait a second. is that one of the skills you get as a united states senator esp also? because i don't think it is. >> reporter: rubio punched back. >> chris -- chris, your state got hit by a massive snowstorm two weeks ago. you didn't want to go back. they had to shame you into going back. >> reporter: that's when rubio got tangled up in his talking points. >> let's dispel this fiction that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing. >> reporter: christie caught rubio putting that line on instant replay. >> this notion that barack obama doesn't know what he's doing is just not true. >> there it is. there it is.
the memorized 25-second speech. there it is, everybody. >> reporter: even rubio's fellow floridian seemed to jump in on governor chris christie's side. >> you learn this. you learn this by doing it. not to say. let's be clear, marco rubio is a gifted, gifted politician. >> reporter: rubio, clearly rocked by the blows, moved on. jumping back in with ted cruz after martha asked about attacking north korean missiles before they launch. >> it's standard procedure for the united states to shoot town those missiles once launched if they pose a danger to civilians -- >> i'm talking about a preemptive strike on the launch pad. >> but it's important to note. that it is and senator cruz, i think, was alluding to this as well. >> reporter: should i go now? this is where one of the other big moments happened. dr. ben carson missing his entrance cue. and creating a bit of a log jam as the other candidates kind of awkwardly went around him.
as he stood waiting in the wings. donald trump kept him company for a little while. apparently, it was very hard for them to hear with all of the applause. david and martha were facing this way. they didn't see what was going on. in the end, governor chris christie offered to introduce governor kasich. it was a comedy of errors, shall we say. >> david, it's always your big moment. i think it's fair to say that all of us who have worked in live television have had moments. as a reminder, it's live, folks, anything can happen. >> anything can happen. david wright, thank you for your reporting. we appreciate it. let's do some sunday morning quarterbacking with matt dowd, also in the debate hall there in manchester. matt, good morning. let's start with rubio. was he seriously damaged by what happened on stage last night? >> since we're going to stay with the football analogies, i think what happened last night to marco rubio was that the young quarterback who had completed a bunch of passes got sacked by the experienced linemen. now the question is, does he have a knee injury, an arm injury, or is he out of the game?
i think what it does is two things. first, it takes away any momentum that he had coming out of iowa and into new hampshire. that's for sure. he's lost the momentum. can he still finish second? i think he can. the other thing more importantly is, is this now, is this criticism now in the water table? it was something a lot of people thought about. is he ready? is he experienced? is he just a great speech or is there more to him? that's the thing that could be a bigger problem for him in the long term. >> can he recover? chris christie went hard at him. i think we were all reminded that chris christie is a former federal prosecutor. does that help christie or perhaps somebody else on the stage? >> i think it might help christie a little bit. right now, here in new hampshire, he's at six or seven in the polls in the single digits. even if he gets a bump of two or three, it won't help much. i think it could help others on the stage who came in watching marco rubio's momentum rise. now that was stopped by chris christie. >> let's talk about the guy
leading in the polls, donald trump. do you think he did anything that will impact his front runner status? in particular, what jon karl said he had never seen before, particularly a candidate attacking members of the audience? >> well, first, i think he'll benefit from that. a lot of people say, yeah, the party is taken over by contributors. big special interests. donald trump took them on in the audience. that's i think a benefit to him. i think donald trump, i wouldn't say he won the debate. i would say he won the night. he walked in here with a double-digit lead. he comes out with a double-digit lead. the main person that was competing to beat him in new hampshire, marco rubio's momentum was stopped. i think donald trump is probably very happy about the night last night. >> so there are eight gop candidates right now. the governors, kasich, bush, and christie had a strong night. especially christie. seemed to push all his chips on the table. do you have a sense that if they don't do well in new hampshire, any of them will drop out?
>> i would guess that -- there's three governors still competing in this race. two of them or maybe one of them are only going to go on from here. i think you'll see one or two of the governors after tuesday seriously consider and drop out. they may take a little while. i think you'll only see one, at most two governors come out of new hampshire tuesday night. >> so high these stakes. matt dowd, we always love having you on and getting your analysis. we appreciate it. let's not forget the democrats. hillary clinton and bernie sanders locked in a fight. clinton tweeted her response to the debate and sanders getting national tv exposure on "saturday night live" and hillary clinton live-tweeting. cecilia vega has the story. she's also in new hampshire this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, dan, good morning to you. the two sides duking it out for votes here in new hampshire. a fight to the finish. but they also went head to head for laughs last night. hillary clinton on twitter. and then there was bernie sanders. will the real bernie sanders please stand up?
>> wait a second! [ cheers and applause ] i am so sick of the 1% getting this preferential treatment. >> reporter: sanders and comedian larry david side by side on "snl" overnight. >> sounds like socialism to me. >> democratic socialism. >> what's the difference? >> huge difference. >> reporter: david showing off his bernie best. >> people love me, okay. i have more individual donations than any candidate in history. and i don't take from millionaires and billionaires. >> i feel like a rock 'n' roll star. >> reporter: earlier in the day, sanders rallying supporters in new hampshire. >> we went to iowa, 40 or 50 points down in the polls. we end up getting a virtual tie. >> reporter: and hillary clinton trying hard to close the gap. going door to door in the granite state. >> a beautiful day in manchester.
>> reporter: trailing double-digits here, clinton now laying it all on the line. >> there's a much greater burden on women running for political office. there is still a huge double standard. >> reporter: clinton under fire in last night's republican debate. >> i'm the last person she wants to run against. >> reporter: she fired right back on twitter with this reaction, saying, bring it on. sanders jumping in the fray, too, tweeting this head shake saying, not good enough. and as you said, clinton down in the polls in new hampshire. she leaves the state and heads to flint, michigan, where they're dealing with the water crisis. here in her place, her not-so-secret secret weapon, bill clinton. >> bill clinton. cecilia, thank you for your reporting this morning. and we should mention, fresh off the debate, abc news chief anchor george stephanopoulos has a huge show coming up. he's going to be speaking with senator marco rubio, donald trump, and hillary clinton, in a special edition of "this week" later this morning on abc.
and north korea was a topic of debate. after the country launched a long-range rocket. this morning, the united nations security council will hold a meeting. to figure out how to handle this latest development there are fears this could be part of a banned test that could make north korea capable of directing a nuclear missile at the united states. now, the north korean government is responding by saying what they launched is an earth observation satellite as part of what they call a peaceful space program. just last month, they claimed to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb. something we'll be keeping our eyes on. meanwhile, here at home, massive security in advance of super bowl 50. bomb detection experts. undercover agents. s.w.a.t. teams deployed in the san francisco area where the game will be played. plenty of fun and excitement. as we countdown to kickoff now just hours away. ryan smith is in san francisco, covering it all. ryan, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan.
100,000 people are expected to flood levi's stadium later today, rooting for the broncos or panthers. peyton manning or cam newton. two very different sides of the superstar coin. peyton manning, the best quarterback in his generation, possibly playing in his last game. and cam newton hoping for the first super bowl win of his young career. it's finally here. super bowl 50 just hours away. with a supermatchup on tap. quarterback cam newton, inviting the nfl's new dual-threat version of a superstar. dangerous with his hands. deadly with his feet. crowned the league's mvp last night. >> i also would like to thank every person that has doubted me. because you made me better. dab. >> reporter: versus peyton manning, a more old school quarterback. a pure passer. an expert at playing mind games on the field. wreaking havoc on defenses with his game preparation and his arm for 18 nfl seasons.
the five-time mvp, one of the greatest of all time. >> it's a special week. it's an exciting week. it makes you very grateful for the opportunity. >> reporter: and their teams. a study in contrasts. carolina's number one ranked offense versus denver's top ranked defense. the nfl equivalent of "clash of the titans." >> i wouldn't say it's hard to get to him. it's hard to take him down. >> reporter: so 100,000 expected on hand for game day at levi's stadium. putting security on high alert. we're standing here in a security operation center for the super bowl. there are multiple ones so they can back each other up. what are they looking for? on the streets, the stadium, the air space to make sure super bowl sunday is a safe one. all those crowds of screaming football fans hoping for a game to remember. there is a lot riding on this game. and i mean literally. it's predicted that $4.2 billion will be wagered on today's game.
peyton manning win, it will mean his second super bowl ring. a cam newton win means the first player in history to win the national championship, the heisman, the mvp, and a super bowl. and dan and paula, he's just 26 years old. >> and a bright future in front of him. paula and i, by the way, have a big bet on who can ingest more calories. i think i'm going to win. >> there's no way. >> i'm voting on dan. >> you're not taking me? >> have you seen what this guy can shovel back? >> i'm consistently a caloric monster. ryan, thank you. i am. we should say, it's supposed to be in the 70s and beautiful for super bowl 50. not the case on the east coast, right, indra petersons? >> no, i'm starting eating now. have you seen the array around the set? i'm starting really early. action on the east coast in a different form. showers. winter all starts here. look at florida. you're looking at some showers already today. let's track it. it's going to form a low. right now, into the southeast, already looking at showers into
the carolinas. by tomorrow, it will get ugly, guys. d.c., new york city, a mix of rain and snow. never good when you're right in between there. watching that carefully. keep following the low. notice what happens for the primaries in through new hampshire. monday in through tuesday. commuting in could be trouble. tuesday talking about snow. that's one system. there is another one out there. watch this guy. notice staying offshore. if this moves even a little bit closer to the coastline we could be talking about heavier amounts of snow. something we'll be watching carefully. new hampshire, the primaries, two to four inches.
