tomorrow. it's wednesday, december 16th and coming up on "early today," fight night in las vegas, the insults were flying. we have the must see moments as the republicans ss battle over isis. meanwhile, hillary clinton takes donald trump to task as she lays out her own plan. hundreds of thousands of kids return to school today after a major scare. and brazen thieves caught on tape but still on the loose. and a brush with death. and a simple act of kindness. "early today" starts right now. and good morning everybody. i'm shannon mulaire. just 12 words into last night's debate and we got to its two biggest topics, terrorism and trump.
candidates will go after each other like we haven't seen yet. and a feisty jeb bush going after frontrunner donald trump. >> donald is great at the one liners. but he's a chaos candidate. and he'd be a chaos president. he would not be the commander and chief we need. >> he does not really believe i'm unhinged. it's because he's failed in this campaign. nobody cares and frankly i'm the most solid person up here and all i want to do is make america great again. >> but those two weren't the stage. senator rubio and cruz went head-to-head on immigration. and how would the truce between

>> i really am. i really am. i feel very honored to be the frontrunner and i think i'll do very well if i'm chosen. >> would you indorse or support whoever wins on your side? >> yes, i would. with enthusiasm. i've gotten to know most of them pretty well. i like a lot of them. i can't say i love everybody. but i like a lot of them and i respect a few of them. >> twitter released its top moments. >> what i like even better is getting our smartest and best to infiltrate their internet, so we know exactly where they're going and where they're going to be. i like that better. [ crowd booing]
kill us, folks and you're objecting to us infiltrating their conversations. i don't think so. jeb is a very nice person. but we need tough people. we need intelligence and tough. jeb said when they come across the southern border, they come as an act of love. >> you said on september 30th that isis was not a factor. >> are you talking or am i talking? >> i'm talking right now. >> have you apologized yet? no. am i allowed to finish. >> go ahead, mr. trump. >> again -- >> governor bush -- one at a time. >> the simple fact is if you think is tough and you're not being treated fairly imagine dealing with president putin or the islamic terrorism that exists. this is a tough business. >> and you're a tough guy, jeb.
