7:02 am
from studio 1a. >> good morning. i didn't get much sleep last night. it wasn't the excitement about duran duran. it was the political debate. >> and duran -- >> okay, a little bit about duran, duran. >> the question is how do voters feel who came out on top? >> we're going to talk to carly fiorina and break things down with nicole walls also a. >> first we'll get a blow by blow from peter alexander. >> donald trump called rand paul ugly and carly fiorina beautiful. a lot of republicans are thinking carly fiorina looks pretty good after another strong showing last night. right out of the gates and true to form, donald trump broke ronald reagan's 11th commandment, teeing off on a republican rival. >> first of all, rand paul shouldn't be on this stage. he's number 11. he's got 1% in the polls.
7:03 am
>> his visceral response to attack people on their appearance, short, tall, fat, ugly, my goodness, that happened in junior high. >> i never attacked him on his look and believe me, there's plenty of subject matter right there. >> for much of the night, his challengers struck back. >> we don't need an apprentice in the white house, we have one right now. >> and carly fiorina responding to trump's insult about her face. >> i think women all over this country heard very clearly what mr. trump said. >> i think she's got a beautiful face and i think she's a beautiful woman. >> jeb bush led the charge taking on trump. >> jeb, jeb -- i was a businessman, i got along with everybody. that was my job to get along with people. excuse me one second -- >> no. >> more energy tonight, i like that. >> later bush defended his family name.
7:04 am
>> as it relates to my brother, there's one thing i know for sure, he kept us safe. i don't know if you remember, donald. >> many reviews declared carly fiorina the declared winner. clear specifics about foreign affairs. >> having met vladimir putin, i wouldn't talk to him at all. >> and pointed critiques about hillary clinton. >> if you want to stump a democrat, ask them to name an accomplishment of mrs. clinton. >> reporter: for the gop field, a crucial attempt to defend themselves. >> if they get their news in spanish, i want them to hear that directly from me, not from a translator at univision. >> bush admitted smoking pot in high school. >> 40 years ago i smoked marijuana. i'm sure others may have done it and may not want to say it in front of 40 million people.
7:05 am
my mom's into the happy that i just did. >> and candidates playfully picking their secret service names. >> ever ready. it's very high energy, donald. [ cheers and applause ] >> mr. trump? >> humble. [ laughter ] >> and late last night after the debate, i spoke exclusively to governor jeb bush, who said that the difference between donald trump and ronald reagan is night and day. he said he was energized by his performance. he called the event more of a performance art than it is a debate. he said he would gladly debate donald trump one-on-one. we'll have part of our exclusive interview coming up at 8:00. he addressed his sagging poll numbers insisting it's still way early. back to you. >> peter alexander, thank you so much. carly fiorina is with us now. good morning to you and thank
7:06 am
you for waking up early. >> good morning, savannah, how are you? >> i'm well. let me see if i can get you to channel your inner donald trump. did you win the debate last night? >> well, i was very satisfied with the debate. when i went in, half the audience had never heard my name and they didn't know i was running for president and i think i successfully introduced myself to those who did not know me and demonstrated once again that i am the most qualified candidate on that stage to win this job and to do this job. >> a lot of viewers felt you put trump in his place last night for his comments about your looks, trump said he wasn't talking about your looks when he said look at that face. but he said last night you have a beautiful face and you're a beautiful woman. what do you think of his response? >> donald trump says many things and we all have to live with what we said. >> when you said that women in this country heard what he said
7:07 am
and knew what he meant, let me push you further. what do you think that women heard when drum onald trump sai that about you? >> i think that women are still kaerkt ka tured and scrutinized differently and i think it's only a woman who would be criticized for her appearance when running for the highest office in the land. so i think women deal with that and live with that every day and i think women understood. >> you may well be the republican nominee and hillary clinton may be the democratic nominee. >> i'm not running for president because i'm a woman. i've never been a token in my life. i am a woman. half the nation is women. we are half the potential of this nation. hillary clinton is going to have
7:08 am
to stand to account for her track record and her accomplishments or lack thereof. that's what this election should be about. >> you talk about the importance of a track record. i know you have gotten into the reasons for your dismissal from hewlett packard and i don't mean to delve into all of that with this question but let me ask you, republicans, if anything, want to win come next november. how can you assure them that you are a winner when your last major professional experience ended with this firing and your only run for office ended with a loss. how can you tell them i'm ready to go the distance? >> well, you know, when you lead, you challenge the status quo, which is what the american people want now. and you make enemies when you challenge the status quo and i made some on the h.p. board and have been very open about my firing from the day it happened. it's also true that the man who led my firing, tom perkins, has
7:09 am
since taken out an open letter in the "new york times" in which he said he was wrong, i was right, i was a terrific ceo and he said would i make a terrific president. >> let me push you on that. you know in politics if you're explaining, you're losing. is it a weakness that you are going to have to delve over and over again and defend your tenure since that is the primary experience on which you're running. >> no, i don't think it's a weakness at all. mr. clinton will have to defend hers, and hers is one of lies about benghazi, about her server, a lack of leadership. >> carly fiorina, thanks for joining us.
7:10 am
>> thanks for having me. >> savannah asked carly fiorina if she won the debate. if she didn't, who do? >> carly won that debate. >> you say nobody was tougher on donald trump. there was a moment in the debate, and savannah and i talked about this earlier where jake tapper, the moderator, tried to get a couple candidates to say whether they would trust the temperament of donald trump with the nuclear codes or a finger on the nuclear button, if you will, and they would not go there and say no. why? >> well, they wouldn't say yes either, which was interesting to me because the entire -- everyone on that stage has signed the loyalty oath, which means they'll support the nominee of our party. if the nominee of our party is donald trump and he becomes president, they have the nuclear code. so i thought they sort of let
7:11 am
them off on that. it's a yes or no question and nobody answered it, you're right. >> what kind of night did you think trump had? >> he was a train wreck and his supporters won't care. i suggest his supporters' numbers will go up a little bit. he had really no substance. i think he's grown as a candidate in interviews, i think he's grown as a candidate on the stump. his debate performance i thought was less than the first one. >> some of the candidates on that stage right now were bordering on the brink of distinction before the debate. who had a good enough performance to stave off disaster for a little while? >> chris christie introduced himself the most effective way of the night. when they came to chris christie he said take the camera off me, show the audience.
7:12 am
he said are you confident that your kid lives will be better than yours? nobody raised their hands. he did what every candidate needs to do, he made it about the people, not about himself. >> and jeb bush? >> i thought that jeb bush was very presidential. he stood up to trump and he stood up for his brother's record and for his wife's dignity. >> nicole wallace, nice to see you again. >> and hillary clinton was speaking out on the "tonight show." this was her first late night appearance since announcing her candidacy. >> i think he's going to go as long as he wants to go and more power to him. that is one of the great things about this country. if you're over 35, then you're eligible as an american citizen, you can actually run for president. so he's making the most out of it.
7:13 am
i'm having a good time watching it. i find it amazing. >> a little earlier in the show, clinton shared a phone conversation with donald trump himself, kind of. jimmy actually played the part. take a look. >> you want to win? here's what i got to do. first, yell. i yell all the time. in fact, this phone isn't even plugged in, i'm just yelling. next, pick three things everyone loves and say you hate them. watch. puppies. stupid. rain boston. total losers. fall foliage, tree puberty. >> i didn't even follow that. >> at one point mrs. clinton said let me get a pen to write all this down, reached up and came back with a glass of wine. natalie is here with some big
7:14 am
story overnight. an earthquake that caused a lot of concern even here at home. >> it's a big story overnight. more than 1 million people forced from their homes by the powerful earthquake off the coast of chile. and gabe is on the phone with us right now. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a magnitude 8.3, this was the strongest earthquake on the planet this year. right now at least 8 people are confirmed dead, though the full scope of the damage is still being assessed. parts of the coast saw 15-foot waves. the quake was centered off the coast nearly 140 miles from santiago, the capital. buildings were seen swaying. since the initial jolt, there
7:15 am
were several strong -- the largest one that ever happened happened here in 1960, a 9.5 magnitude. >> searchers are looking for a missing by swept away in flash floods along the utah-arizona border monday. he was in one of two vehicles, 16-year-old tyson. 12 people have been confirmed dead after a wall of water hit those vehicles. >> a big announcement today that may have an impact on your pocketbook. the federal reserve is scheduled to reveal whether it will raise short-term interest rate, that have hovered near zero for years. >> good morning, natalie. it's a big deal and not a big deal at the same time. the reason why i say that is it's been close to a decade since the american central bank raised interest rates. it's been a long time coming.
7:16 am
again, we had a financial crisis and all of these things happening for our rates, it's really disadvantaged a large part of our population, the savers, the ones who use saving accounts, a lot of retirees and pensioners paying very close attention to what's happening. it's all going to happen at 11:00 a.m. pacific, 2:00 p.m. eastern time and we'll be all over it. >> thank you so much. >> and caught on camera, a train slamming into a school bus just minutes after the kid escaped. the driver didn't make a sharp enough turn apparently and he quickly evacuated all 60 students just in time because a couple of minutes later as you see there, the train plowed right into the bus. one train passenger suffered minor injuries, but fortunately the kid are okay.
7:17 am
but three people are now behind bars this morning following dramatic high-speed car chase in kansas city. officers caught up to the suspect at a gas station. but the suspect rammed the stolen vehicle into the police car. the suspect kept driving. the car finally spun out after hitting a spike trip. >> all summer long we've been showing you baseball fans catching balls in spectacular fan, some holding babies, some while hold willing their beer cups. now an example of what not to do. catching the ball with your face. that poor fan, his glasses shattered. but he recovered well. a few minutes later he was watching the game with a freshly taped up pair of specs.
7:18 am
>> nice he didn't share his misery with anyone. >> one more time for the rest of the world. one more time! >> what's going on with the weather? >> this is just northwest of minneapolis at husky stadium, st. cloud state university. the lightning was very vivid, the rain was coming in side ways, look at those bolts of lightning crash to the ground. luckily there were no reports of any damage or serious injury. actually practice, i'm told, still went on. we have more storms in the minneapolis area, stretching through des moines. these cloud will produce vivid ground lightning. and also hale through minneapolis and des moines. we could see large hail. can't rule out an isolated tornado. this is a very slow moving front but tomorrow from wichita up

7:36 am
thousands of miles away, we'll see higher wave heights than normal across california and across hawaii, too. we could end up with dangerous rip currents and a higher storm surge. some beaches are closed in california because of the threat of that tsunami. it just an advisory, just something to be mindful of, especially along the coast of california and hawaii, especially today around noontime when those high tides kick in. across the eastern half of our country, we're looking for temperatures to be on the warm side, still running about 10 to 15 degrees above average with highs remaining in the 90s but eventually the time we go into the weekend, a stronger cold front, the one triggering sortos through the midwest, best chance of stronger storms today, this

7:41 am
don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. we're back at 7:41 with the lone survivor of last month's horrific shooting that unfolded
7:42 am
on live television in virginia. vicky gardner is with us along with her husband, tim gardner. good morning to both of you. >> good morning, savannah. >> vicky, you spoke last night and you sounded good and now i can see you look good. the whole country wants to know how you're feeling, how you're doing this morning. >> it's a day-by-day recovery. it's hard to know what to expect as the day goes by. when you combine the physical and the mental, i feel like i'm the poster child for recovery. so i'm feeling good. >> you look like the poster child for recovery and resilience for sure. vicky, normally if i talk to somebody who has been through something like this, i think i can't imagine what it must have been like. unfortunately so many people in your case, including your husband, saw this unfold on television.
7:43 am
i know you decided to watch that video. why was that important to you? >> well, you know, your mind can conjure up all sorts of things. i wanted to make sure what my mind is thinking and reality kind of match up. this is really important, it's not something you can suppress. you have to face it and piece together the pieces of the puzzle. >> i know you remember every single thing about those moments. take my back to that time. what was going through your mind? how did you survive? >> well, i will say, let me start real quickly of saying in preparing for this, the whole idea was a great big celebration, it was the 50th anniversary of smith mountain lake and what can we do to showcase this, and we had ideas galore. when alli san and adam and i got
7:44 am
together and we began sharing all of these things and saying how can we put it all into three segments of a live show, we had a great time in doing that. and so, you know, it unfolded as meeting with them and showing them all of our materials and how can we best portray. adam was such a pro at finding the best angles and working off of allison and how can we say this in the very best way? so we did the very first segment there at the visitor center and then in the second segment, it was, you know, which was probably 30 minutes later, we had another person, a marketing person, jerry hale, who came in to help us out with that and skri yet and so he did just a
7:45 am
remarkable job. thankfully jerry stepped away and said i've got a lot of other meetings and so itch thank goodness that he left. the third segment was to be done outside as the sun was coming up overlooking smith mountain lake. the office and visitor center is right there on the water. so what a perfect setting for us to go ahead and do this third section. and so we set up, we were trying to create everything, trying to be focused on the camera, focused on allison standing next to me and then probably the part that everybody has heard over and over again but it really was surreal is that we saw movement behind us, i saw movement behind us of somebody coming up, not knowing what their purpose was, not knowing if it was a maintenance person looking for answers, not -- just not understanding.
7:46 am
i saw somebody that looked a little boxy and which of course the full armor gear explained that. and then of course everything just was rapid, it unfolded from there, his arm went up and so unexpected, a mind can't conjure up what reality, even though you're living it and so he was shooting and we did, you know, you've heard it, you've seen many things that transpired. adam went down, all of the fire happened to be at face level. allison had moved off in a different direction and i just felt the very best thing was just to drop just to pretend as though i had been hit and just drop and go into fetal position, of which of course it was
7:47 am
somewhat quiet, he did whatever it was that he did that i couldn't see because my position and then he came back just i guess to be sure and shot me in the back. and then, you know, from that point there was a lot of things, a lot more than i can explain at this point. but rescue came in, you know, everything that anybody could possibly do to take this tragedy and turn it into the very best scenario that they could they did, what with our rescue team, with our police, with everyone. >> well, vicky, as you said at the beginning, you are the absolute picture of resalience and recovery. you managed to survive in an unthinkable situation. you spoke to him in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. we're so happy to see you and see what good condition you're in. i know how much you feel passion
7:48 am
for that community. you're the best advertisement of that town for smith mountain lake. thank you for your time this morning, we really appreciate it. >> if i can just say one last thing, i want to say this community, what i want to showcase is what a community does right when a tragedy happens. we hear a lot of communities that just don't know how to deal with it. this community did it right. they pulled together, they continue to be respectful and honor everything that is happening in such a great way. >> well, they certainly have. and we're so happy to see you both. thank you so much for your time this morning. >> and just ahead on "where are they now," we'll talk to former prisoner of war jessica lynch more than a decade after her capture in iraq. first, these messages. ♪ ooh... ♪ whatever this world... at petsmart, we know that pet adoption changes lives.

8:23 am
though i came out and i told the truth and i tried to do my best to set the record straight and make sure that the ones that were in my unit such as sergeant patrick miller that actually did a lot of the killing, i want to make sure that the people that deserve the credit gets the credit. and not me, who was knocked unconscious and didn't even get to fire off a shot. it's just kind of amazing that even 12 years later, those stories that were created, those fabricated stories, are still, you know, being targeted at me like you know, somehow i had something to do with those stories, that i created them, that i, you know, and i'm like no, no, i was just a soldier in the same unit with all these other -- i'm just hoping to survive. >> i think when people see you, see how well you're doing and hear your story once again, i think they will be really touched. jessica, it's great to catch up with you. thank you so much.

violence of the film and the brutality of the world. >> you see it through her eyes. >> yeah. >> you really can't be typecast. i was thinking about your body of work. musicals, dramas, comedies, then this. do you go out of your way to make sure each project is distinct and you're not doing the same role over and over again? >> oh, yeah. i try not to be derivative of something i've done. i think i've been allowed to keep it a mixed bag so far, so i think that's what i love about the job, really. >> you recently became an american citizen. >> i did. >> what was that like, to stand there and take the oath and go through that? >> it's meaningful. my two favorite people in the world are american. my husband and my daughter. it was kind of a special day, yeah. it was great. >> you made a joke the other day, saying you watched the republican debate and joked, what was i thinking? some people took that the wrong way. >> right. >> you wanted to say your piece about it. >> it was so not the intention, to hurt anybody or cause any
8:43 am
offense. i really apologize to those that i caused offense. it was an offhand joke. i'll probably leave the political jokes to late night or something. >> i think you probably have better knowledge of our country than a lot of middle schoolers right now. >> yeah. there was a lot i learned about the constitution and american history. i know more about american history than british history, which is interesting. >> how is the little girl, hazel? >> so great. >> she's big. talking? >> she is. words and sentences are slowly forming. >> i have to leave you with this, you told your producer, in your next role, you're a booze bag. >> i know i'm going from hardened fbi agent to a blackout drunk in the next one. >> i'm sold. emily blunt, come back and tell us about it. this project opens in select theaters tomorrow, worldwide oktd october 2nd. coming up next, come down with me, emily, duran duran is

9:42 am
makes them believe it's all about them. >> let's get to your tips to combat this. let's start with what's to expect more. >> our kids are more capable than we give them credit for. we need to expect them to -- toddlers to teens to contribute every day. family contributions that they are responsible for, and expect them to take on more responsibility down the road. they'll learn life skills and be happier for it. when kids tribute, they're happy about that. >> you say that means doing chores and adding to whatever it is that needs to be done around the house. >> absolutely. those are all really important. then one of the other strategies we have to think about is giving up on giving in. so often, parents say yes when they really should say no. we do that because we don't want the battle. we need to stop that and have the courage to say no. we'll have to put up with pouting and disappointment in the short term, but in the long term, it'll teach the kids they don't get what they want because they whine enough. >> handing over the reigns.
9:43 am
>> every time we rescue our kids or we intervene on their behalf, we rob them of the opportunity to take responsibility for themselves. figure things out, maybe face a scary situation. little by little, they stop trying. we need to hand over the reigns and let our kids be responsible. it's their job to remember their homework. we want to role play, how they can have a conversation with a teacher about a grade or with the coach about more playing time. we'll be there to support, but it's their responsibility. >> i love this next one. you say it's time for parents to shut down the atm. what is the best way? i've wondered about this. setting up an allowance for your kid. i pay my son $1 a day if he makes his bed and does everything i want him to do. >> the thing we want to stay away from is handing over $5 and $10 every time they ask. a weekly allowance is important. we want to make sure they have a list of expenses they're responsible for. little kids cover toys and treats when they go to the store. older kids budget their

allowance for school lunches, clothing, entertainment, but that allowance and expenses formula is key so that they learn how to manage money. so when they have a real paycheck and bigger expenses, they'll be prepared. >> you do the point system in your house. >> earn or lose points, and it's building up to a goal. >> sure. >> the last one, uncenter their universe. this was about gratitude. >> kids think it's all about them, so we have to focus that to the world around them. we can do it by implementing daily gratitude rituals at night or meal time. random acts of kindness, serving others throughout the year, not just over the holidays and, most importantly, to be the example we want our kids to be. >> so important. thanks so much, amy mccreadyccr. head to up next, one of the biggest bands of all time. bands of all time. they're when you're preparing for game time...
