7:04 am
and, you know, want to work for him. or inappropriate stuff from women. and they know he's married. so -- >> you've seen that. >> oh, yes, of course, it was in front of me. >> in front of you? >> in front of me. and i said, like, why you need to give your number to my husband? i'm very strong. >> reporter: with melania describing women throwing themselves at trump, i asked him if he's taken advantage. have you crossed the line in the past with women ever? >> i don't think so. i have great respect for women. i have tremendous respect for women. these people come up maybe for a little fame or maybe some other reason. >> reporter: overnight donald trump amplifying his claims the election may be stolen from him, this time adding dead voters into the mix. >> more than 1.8 million deceased individuals right now are listed as voters. oh, that's wonderful.

7:06 am
>> reporter: as for the election voter fraud idea, it's incredibly rare. politifact is ranking donald trump's use of certain stats to show large-scale voter fraud as pants on fire false, their lowest ranking. robin? >> okay, tom, thank you. now to hillary clinton looking to gain momentum and expand into traditionally red states. her campaign dramatically ramping up efforts in arizona. but this morning, she's facing tough new questions about her e-mails. abc's cecilia vega is here with all of that. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. and this morning, allegations of a quid pro quo. the implication here that a top state department official was trying to protect hillary clinton from the political fallout of having classified information on her private server. the state department and the fbi say it never happened. but republicans say not so fast. the stars were out for a big hillary clinton fund-raiser overnight in new york. billy crystal, sarah jessica parker, barbra streisand, just to name a few, all raising at least $2 million. ♪ happy times happy times
7:07 am
>> reporter: but this morning, newly released notes from fbi interviews about clinton's private server, in them, what republicans are calling this bombshell. an fbi staffer accuses a top state department official of pressuring the bureau to declassify an e-mail found on that server. the fbi staffer telling investigators that the request amounted to a quote quid pro quo. adding in exchange for marking the e-mail unclassified, state would reciprocate by allowing the fbi to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden. the fbi and state department say the deal never happened. there was no quid pro quo and that the e-mail in question remained classified. >> there was no quid pro quo. >> reporter: donald trump pouncing. >> this shows corruption at the highest level. and we can't let it happen as american citizens. >> reporter: clinton's team still feeling confident about the election, expanding efforts in republican territory -- arizona, utah, and georgia.
7:08 am
and in arizona three big name surrogates, bernie sanders, chelsea clinton, and the heaviest hitter of all, michelle obama, all headed there this week. clinton herself still off the campaign trail, behind closed doors, george, she's practicing for tomorrow's debate. >> big event tomorrow night, cecilia, thanks very much. let's talk to matthew dowd about all of this. we know the clinton campaign now going big into arizona, making some kind of a play in indiana and missouri, as well. so the question, is this smart politics or overconfidence? >> well, i think it's a little bit of both. i think it's fairly smart to force your opponent -- she's now playing on her opponent's side of the field. and the clock is on her side. the clock is running out. she has a lead. but it is demonstrating a little bit of overconfidence. because she's not put away oy ohio. and has not fully put away north carolina. and she has not put away florida. so she has to protect those states, because she wants to win one of those states. but i think she has a real shot of carrying arizona. >> even though she doesn't need one of those three big states she wants it for security going for the 270.
7:09 am
meantime, let's look ahead to tomorrow night. the final presidential debate. let's talk a little bit about what each candidate has to do. donald trump, we have seen what he's doing. he's going to try to provoke a mistake from clinton. >> she has almost wrapped this race up. she's got a huge national lead. she has a lead in almost every state. he has to win but he can't just have a bare victory but a big victory. and he has to hope that for some reason, that debate, she does something that all of us are going to be talking about for the three days following. >> the danger for her would be sort of overcautiousness. >> well, i think she's going to go in and she knows that running out the clock is what she needs to do. if she goes in like she did in the first debate, like she did in the second debate, and does well, she's going to win this race. >> okay, matthew dowd, thanks very much. you can see the final presidential debate tomorrow night right here on abc. i'll be anchoring our live coverage with our whole political team starting at 9:00 eastern. >> all right, george. >> i'm going to stay up late. i'm going to stay up late to watch you, george. with everybody else out there.
7:10 am
absolutely. let's turn to some weather. where we're feeling the heat on the east coast. it's spreading across the country and we're enjoying some a/c inside. but ginger is outside. how long is this hot streak going to last? >> we have at least a couple of days. here we are in the middle of october in times square. it's 67 degrees at this hour. that's three degrees warmer than our average high should be. so you know this isn't normal. check it out. it is downright steamy. look at that map. record highs as of monday. dodge city, kansas. they've never hit 100 plus in the month of october until yesterday in recorded history, st. louis, missouri, had a record high. we could do it again with records possible from dallas, texas, through washington, d.c. and cincinnati, you could do it as well. that jet stream is buckled and it will stay that way at least for the next two to three days depending where you are and then we'll get back to reality, guys. >> thank you, ginger. >> i'm used to getting off the plane from california this time of the year with a jacket. i got off and i'm like, it's hot out here. >> even hotter today. >> we're not complaining at all. now overseas to the fight against isis, the u.s. is

7:13 am
times, before making his getaway in the patrol car of the wounded officer. abc's neal karlinsky is tracking the case. >> reporter: you're looking at fairbanks police officer allen brandt's dash cam, responding to a call of shots fired sunday morning. the first thing he sees is a man on the right walking towards him. then suddenly the same man rushes to the driver's side of the patrol car with a gun raised, shooting the 11-year veteran and family man four times in the lower part of his body and once in the chest. >> sergeant brandt was wearing body armor which protected his chest area. he sustained injuries to his legs and shrapnel in his left eye. he is awake, alert, and in stable condition. >> reporter: the suspect is seen one last time calmly walking away after stealing the patrol car and dumping it a few blocks later. this morning police say an urgent manhunt is on. the alleged attempt on police, one of several targeting officers in recent weeks. in vallejo, california, this

7:16 am
they called 911. he was covered in soot. there you see him. but it didn't stop him from giving one of the firefighters a big old hug right there. i just want to say locksmiths are an option. even maybe breaking a window might be better than getting stuck in a chimney. >> than coming down the chimney? >> just saying. >> the firefighter looked like he was actually receptive of that hug covered in soot. stay away from me, buddy. thank you, amy. here's something you don't see every day. indians pitcher trevor bauer forced to leave his playoff game early because his finger started bleeding. and kayna whitworth is here with that story. and kayna, this all started with an injury from a drone. >> reporter: michael, that is exactly right. trevor bauer says he sliced his finger fixes one of his drones. and it happened right before the biggest game of his life. and so his start was pushed back. but after just 21 pitches, his finger started bleeding so much, they had to pull him. >> he's got him! >> reporter: overnight the cleveland indians beating the toronto blue jays 4-2.
7:17 am
the indians now one game closer to the world series. but this morning, everyone is pointing fingers at indians pitcher trevor bauer who started the first inning off with a bloody mess. >> there's no way you can continue in this game with the blood gushing from your hand. >> reporter: the 25-year-old pulled from the mound in the first inning after facing just four batters. trevor's pinkie finger dripping blood. >> they were confident coming into today. >> reporter: bauer's injury not from the game, but from a drone propeller. >> one of those things that -- freak accident you can't really control to. and i was plugging the battery in and my finger happened to be right here. >> reporter: trevor, a huge drone enthusiast, nearly severed his finger friday, needing ten stitches. but just like there's no crying in baseball, there are no bandages either. major league baseball forbidding pitchers to attach anything to their hand, finger, or wrist. >> when i saw blood on the rubber, i kind of figured out it wasn't a real good sign. >> reporter: twitter having a field day with the incident, one
7:18 am
writing it's just a flesh wound. some drawing comparisons to curt schilling and his bloody sock in the 2004 playoffs. >> we don't have another starter right now. >> reporter: one thing is for sure, the indians keeping their fingers crossed bauer will make a quick recovery. so if the indians win tonight they will clinch the alcs and then will head to the world series. michael, i can hear my dad saying, wrap it up, get back in the game. they can't put anything on their hands. >> you know, pitchers, are -- they don't want any illegal substances. any advantage. that would be an advantage. a lot of people saying why is he messing with a drone and 25 -- maybe it's a relaxing thing for him because he's under a lot of pressure as a pitcher. maybe it's way to -- >> not so relaxing right now. >> does that sound relaxing to you? the most annoying thing ever. >> he wasn't holding it, at least i don't think he was. >> did i scare you again, george? >> now we know what you really think about drones. okay. back to ginger with wildfire concerns in the west. >> yes, we go to colorado where at least 15,000 acres are burning in southeastern colorado.

7:32 am
trump on. and that what trump said does not count as sexual assault. >> he apologized to me and i expect -- i accept his apology. and we are moving on. >> reporter: melania trump not only defends her husband, she goes on the attack. >> is it fair for the media to bring up bill clinton's past? or for donald trump to bring up bill clinton's past? >> if they bring my past, why not? >> so they're asking for it. >> they're asking for it. they started. >> reporter: the woman typically known to keep a low profile is no longer shying away from entering the fray. >> oh, poor melania. don't feel sorry for me. don't feel sorry for me. i -- i can handle everything. >> reporter: her stand by her man position is somewhat reminiscent of hillary clinton in 1998 when her husband was president and faced accusations of sexual misconduct. >> this vast right wing conspiracy that has been
7:33 am
conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. >> it was left wing and left wing media. yeah. >> reporter: the couple first met at a fashion week party in 1998. she told "harper's bazaar" she refused to give trump her phone number. instead, the slovenian model asked him for his. they went on their first date soon after. in 2005, they were married. and a year later, melania gave birth to their son, barron. she's mostly stayed off the campaign trail to raise him until her most maligned appearance at the republican convention this summer. >> the only limit to your achievements -- >> the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work hard for them. >> and your willingness to work for them. >> reporter: since speechgate melania has stayed out of the limelight. just last week, her legal team demanded an apology from "people" magazine disputing
7:34 am
reporter natasha stoynoff's claims that sometime after she says she was assaulted by donald trump she bumped into melania on the treat in 2005 and had a conversation with her. >> i was never friend with her. i would not recognize her. >> reporter: so as the campaign winds down, hoping to land some punches before the final bell. >> people won't want to go against him but my husband is real. he's raw. he tells as it is. >> reporter: according to "the new york times," trump's aides urged melania to show her support for her husband by doing a sit-down interview with trump. melania reportedly did not like that idea. in her interview with fox news she is very clear she is her own woman and no one will make her do anything she doesn't want to do. robin and george. >> okay, linsey, thanks very much. let's bring in cokie roberts to talk more about this. cokie, as linsey pointed out in the piece right there, real echoes of hillary clinton both in 1998 and 1992, question today is how effective was it? >> probably not terribly effective, in the same way that hillary clinton wasn't terribly effective in those interviews. i think that it's keeping the
7:35 am
story alive, for one thing. but another is that melania trump is, in some ways, not terribly recognizable to a lot of voters. during the republican convention i interviewed a number of republican female delegates who basically said that they couldn't relate to her. she was too beautiful, she was too rich. and that they didn't see her as an authentic person. in the same way that people see michelle obama, for instance. >> she was very much going after the accusers. it seems like that was part of the strategy in having her come out and speak, cokie. >> well, in some ways i think that -- that in some ways was her most effective part because it was about her as opposed to being about her husband where she said they went after me so why not? but, again, that brings up her past. and gives people excuses to put out nude pictures of her, which is not terribly helpful to the campaign. >> i think the other part you
7:36 am
would say to be effective is see her publicly accepting her husband's apology. >> well, which, of course, she did in the statement and now she's done publicly, as well. but, again, i don't think that that is something that people would expect her to do anything else but accept his apology. but, you know, look, looking at voters who basically say they don't care. we've got -- we've got a very partisan electorate right now, what i do think might be true is that it might have energized some of hillary clinton's voters to say we don't want this man. >> i know, because martha raddatz was here picking up on what you were just saying, cokie, martha raddatz was here, she spoke to voters who basically said, it doesn't matter. it doesn't matter what he did. so is a bigger deal being made out of it than it really is? >> well, i think that -- no, i really don't think so. i think even if it doesn't matter to a lot of voters who are very firmly set in their place, that it has started a national conversation, robin. >> true, true. >> that women are feeling a
7:37 am
little bit empowered by. that they're saying, this is -- this is not okay. and there's a whole twitter site, not okay, with thousands of women on it now telling their own stories. so i think this has a life even beyond this campaign. >> yeah, the reaction has been extraordinary when you really break it down. all right, cokie, thanks so much. >> good to be with you. >> coming up on the big board? >> a lot. up next what fellow republicans are saying about donald trump's claims the election is rigged. and also, what one guy did to get himself banned from the tennis court. wait till you see the caught on camera meltdown. all that coming up in just two minutes and we have mr. mcenroe here to talk about that. >> patrick mcenroe. >> there he is over there. that was invigorating! you're probably wondering why i've just carved a giant wooden tiger. well, the answer is that a real one would maul me. i've crafted dr. whiskers here as a visual aid

just talking smack here with patrick mcenroe. we're talking about the '91 u.s. open, go figure. >> thanks for the memories. >> welcome back. time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's
7:40 am
top stories. as we said, patrick mcenroe is here at the table. we'll get to mac in just a moment. but let's start with republican nominee donald trump. ramping up those allegations that the presidential election is rigged. overnight at a rally in green bay, wisconsin, again hammering home the claim. >> they even want to try to rig the election at the polling booths. and believe me, there's a lot going on. did you ever hear these people, they say, there's nothing going on? people that have died ten years ago are still voting. illegal immigrants are voting. i mean, where are the street smarts of some of these politicians? >> and we got jon karl joining us now from the battleground state of florida which was the epicenter of the last presidential election controversy. and i don't have to tell you, trump is not letting this one go, jon. >> oh, he is up obsessed with this.
7:41 am
everywhere he's talking about this. this morning he is still tweeting about it and this is a bedrock principle of american democracy, the peaceful transition of power, the integrity of our election systems. he is saying that they don't have integrity, so i asked one of the republican leaders he's talking about last night, i moderated a debate here in florida last night between the senate candidates. and i asked marco rubio about this. listen to his response. there's been a lot of question about the legitimacy of this election. donald trump has said this election is absolutely being rigged. >> this election is not being rigged. and i'll explain to you why it's not being rigged in florida. and why i hope he stops saying that. why he should stop saying that. we have 67 counties in this state. each of which conduct their own elections. i promise you there is not a 67-county conspiracy to rig this election. >> well, and that -- >> here's another thing, robin, when you talk about this, local election officials in much of the country are republicans. in fact, in the two biggest battleground states, ohio and florida, the two top election
7:42 am
officials are republicans. >> but, jon, what do they do to ensure the elections are fair and because of what donald trump is saying, do you think this year they're extra careful? >> reporter: oh, yes, i think there will be an eagle eye on all of the election largely because of what donald trump is saying. but really, this was the case before donald trump uttered the word rigged. i mean, i was down here covering the florida recount in 2000, believe me, after that process, people did a big scrub of the election process, teams of lawyers for both parties, this is something that has been looked at very carefully for a long time. >> good point there, jon. >> all right. well, thank you, jon. now to outrage over a 911 dispatcher accused of hanging up on more than 800 emergency calls. she's now facing two misdemeanor counts with potentially more to come. legal analyst areva martin joining us now. investigators say she may have hung up on even more callers
7:43 am
than the 800 that they e know about, including one that ended in a fatality. but have you ever heard of anything like this? >> no, michael. this is an outrageous case. this woman crenshanda williams may have hung up on thousands of callers, and as you said, two really serious cases. one involving an armed robbery where there was a fatal shooting. and a second one involving a woman who became unconscious. her husband's calling 911 talking to miss williams trying to administer cpr and she hangs up on him. now, fortunately for this woman, she's revived and she has survived this ordeal. but these are very serious accusations against someone who was entrusted with a very serious job of providing emergency assistance. and she just said she didn't have time for the callers. >> accusations, areva and also charges. two misdemeanor charges. what do you make of that? >> well, i think the law that's being used to prosecute miss williams wasn't really designed for someone in her situation.
7:44 am
it wasn't designed for a dispatcher whose job was to provide assistance. but at least she is facing some jail time. possibly up to a year. and her supervisors are also being disciplined. >> boy, that's the last thing you expect when you call 911. >> areva, thank you. we move on to the controversy surround a top ranked tennis player. australia's nick kyrgios banned the rest of the season when he seemingly just quit during a match. take a look. [ crowd booing ] doesn't even try for it. so, patrick mcenroe, let's talk -- i mean, when you're wamping this, you -- >> horrendous. >> you played at the top level. of the sport. >> thank you for saying that. >> you have. >> that's up for debate, but, okay. >> not at all. when you see something like that -- >> well, your first reaction is one of disgust and disdain, okay, but then when you take a
7:45 am
step back, i think you have to realize that this really in a lot of ways from kyrgios was a cry for help. i mean to hit a serve like this, to literally tap the serve as he did is basically telling everyone that i don't care. i don't want to be here. i want no part of competing in this match. this guy has a history of doing things like this. let's also say that he's a very talented player. he's got some swagger. he's got some personality. he could be a grand slam champion if he gets his act together. so i think the atp tour did the right thing. they banned him for the rest of this year. but they gave him an option, that if he goes to see a sports psychologist and gets some help, which i believe he needs, that he could get the ban reduced and be ready to play at the australian open start of next year. i think that was the right decision by the tour. >> maybe that will take him to the next level. >> it should. it could and i think for him he's got to look in the mirror and realize that he's got a problem. i think he realizes that and he has said in some facebook comments and some twitter comments that he realizes he
7:46 am
made a big mistake. because initially, he was very combative. he was yelling at people in the crowd. people were saying you be a professional out there. he yelled at the people in the crowd. he yelled at the chair umpires and said get me out of here as quickly as i can. i mean, michael, can you imagine you letting a running back just go -- just right past you. >> no. >> no, i don't think so. >> not on purpose. >> not on purpose. >> i've been blocked, though. >> that's what this guy did, did it on purpose. that's what makes it so crazy. >> you think it's a bigger issue here. >> there's a bigger issue that he has and i think we need -- he needs to understand that there are consequences for his actions but he also needs to understand -- we need to understand in the tennis world that this guy needs some help. and we should give him some help. >> that's good of you. >> hopefully he'll heed the advice and can end up being a great player you said he could be. now, thank you, pat, areva and jon, thank you all so much. we appreciate you all. coming up in just two minutes "the price is right" is making history, the moment that had these contestants jumping for joy is coming up next. that brings back a lot of childhood memories to me. >> come over here.

♪ ♪ i want it all that tango got jana kramer a perfect score last night on "dancing with the stars." it was latin night. of course, one couple did have to come home. and we're going to talk to maks in just a little bit. >> first, though, we've got that new health headline about diabetes and exercise and why when you work out really matters. abc's chief health and medical editor dr. richard besser joining us now with that and let's say right up we're talking about type 2 diabetes.
8:14 am
>> exactly, exactly. >> and you've got nearly 10% of americans have this. an 1 in 3 are sort of so-called prediabetic. so that's a lot of people right there. how much exercise do people need to reduce this risk? >> so this is really interesting. they looked at 28 studies that followed thousands of people over many years to try to address that. and what they found was if you do the 30 minutes five times awea week which is recommended, it greatly reduces the amount -- your risk of getting type 2 diabetes. if you do more than that, your risk goes down even further but what really grabbed me was that if you do less, if you do only ten minutes a day, you get some benefit compared to people who do nothing so every bit helps. you shouldn't be put off by the fact i don't have enough time. >> right, but more is more and timing was also very important in the study, correct? >> so, a separate study looked at people who had type 2 diabetes and said, okay, you've got your 30 minutes to do, do you do it as one block or do you break it up? so they had people for one period of time do it in one block of 30 minutes and the
8:15 am
other period of time, they did ten minutes right after eating a meal. and what they found is, if you do the ten minutes, just go for a ten-minute walk after you eat your meal, it greatly reduces blood sugar. 22% lower blood sugar with just a ten-minute walk. >> the science behind common sense. >> yes, exactly, exactly. >> is that just because your engines, so to speak, are working and processing food better. >> it was always like, well, walking helps you digest but it's controlled by a hormone called insulin and when you exercise, it helps our cells use the insulin and also causes our muscles to burn up that sugar. so, you know, there's good reasons for why that balances out your sugar and it's a great thing to do. >> in addition to exercise what else can people do? >> we talk about it all the time. if you can maintain a healthy weight or if you're overweight losing just 5% of your body weight, that's enough to dramatically reduce your risk of having type 2 diabetes. it's hard to do but it's really worth that effort. >> all of it doable, too. >> it is. >> even a little bit of exercise. even a little bit of weight.
