7:01 am
shooting -- >> no justice. >> -- sparking protests near san diego. >> are you okay? and search for answers. >> i'm not allowing anybody to go in there. >> that deadly commuter train crash in new jersey. the ntsb tries to gather rns evidence, does this recorder hold the clue to what caused that accident? hey, good morning. happy saturday. welcome to october, everybody. a few quick bits of business. before we dive in. first, paula is off on this saturday morning. we're happy to have the amazing cecilia vega on the set. >> glad to be here. >> and two, you may have noticed that we're all wearing pink. in rachel's case, pinkish. >> or very pink. >> ron's case, electric pink. all to kick off a very serious breast cancer awareness month. which we'll be talking about coming up a little bit later in
7:02 am
>> definitely. and on a very serious front, we start with the breaking news. hurricane matthew now a powerful category 4 storm. heading toward jamaica. packing winds of more than 150 miles per hour. the possibility of up to 25 inches of rain. the big question right now, of course, will it hit the u.s.? >> rob and his team have been tracking the storm closely all night. rob is here with the latest. good morning, sir. >> good morning, dan. explosive development with this system. we have been watching this system for about a week. the has taken off. as it entered the caribbean sea. here's thursday morning. just a tropical storm. it starts to blossom here. yesterday morning, a category 2 storm. we saw it develop, drop 44 millibars and 80 miles per hour in 24 hours. only two other storms have done that, including wilma back in 2005. that is what we call rapid intensification. two times the rate that qualifies for that. let's talk about exactly
7:03 am
it's pretty low as well. the lowest category 5 on record. there's a tropical storm warning out for colombia. jamaica, a hurricane watch. i think on monday is when you'll feel the impacts of this. cuba on tuesday. into the bahamas wednesday and thursday. look at that. florida now in the cone of uncertainty. so we'll talk more about the potential impacts here in the u.s. here are the computer models. giving you an idea just how wide and varied they are. not in the gulf of mexico. but potential impacts for the eastern u.s. next week. dan and cecilia, back to >> all right, thank you, rob. you'll be tracking that all weekend. we turn to the race for the white house. a new fox poll showing hillary clinton with a post-debate bump. 61% of registered voters who watched the debate say clinton won. and now take a look at this. a slight edge for her among likely voters. 43% to 40% over donald trump. add a 3:00 a.m. twitter tirade and it must mean one thing. election day is near. 38 days to go.
7:04 am
from washington with the latest. mary, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the election may be around the corner. but this morning, the issue dominating the campaign is donald trump's growing fight with a former miss universe. clinton has been blasting trump all week for shaming alicia machado. and now, it seems to be keeping him up at night. >> i mean, really, who gets up at 3:00 in the morning to engage in a twitter attack? against a former miss universe. >> reporter: hillary clinton ripping in his latest twitter tirade. this time against former beauty queen alicia machado. >> really, why does he do things like that? >> reporter: trump spent friday's wee morning hours bashing machado. calling her disgusting. a con. his worst miss u. alleging she had a sex tape, all before 5:30 a.m. on instagram, machado fired back, calling trump's attacks cheap lies.
7:05 am
intimidate hear. their contentious relationship on kiss display in this 1997 interview. >> she gained a little weight right in the middle. >> i don't think so. >> she's probably right. >> i don't think so. >> reporter: clinton is painting trump as a misogynist. >> his latest twitter meltdown is unhinged even for him. it proves yet again he's temperamentally unfit to be president and commander in chief. >> reporter: trump later defended his early morning tweets, posting, at 3:00 in the morning, at least you know i'll be there, awake, to answer the call. clinton is not letting this one go. needling trump with her own early morning tweet. posting that 3:20 a.m. is as good a time as any to tweet about national service. one of her big issues. the longer trump's feud with machado drags on, the further it will keep him from the issues. >> we'll talk about that with matt dowd in a few minutes. there's another story this morning. trump's twitter spree is not his
7:06 am
there's this new video tape released despite protests from trump's attorneys. it shows the candidate testifying under oath in a lawsuit he filed against a celebrity chef. abc's devin dwyer is on that story from washington as well. devin, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. these are tapes that the trump campaign did not want you to see. they were released only after abc news appealed directly to the judge. they show a presidential candidate in a setting like we have never seen before. testifying under oath in the middle of this campaign. donald trump giving sworn testimony in a lawsuit he broug. >> i do. >> reporter: trump is suing celebrity chef geoffrey zakarian who backed out of a restaurant deal in trump's new d.c. hotel after trump insulted mexicans in his announcement speech. >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> did you plan in advance what you were going to say? >> yes. >> reporter: in the deposition, trump accuses zakarian of inflicting financial damages.
7:07 am
quietly, it would have been a lot better for everyone. they made such a big deal out of it. and they didn't have to make a big deal out of it. >> reporter: he claims his controversial candidacy would have helped business at zakarian's restaurant. >> it's possible i could have helped him. as opposed to hurting him. >> help who? >> if he had the restaurant, it would be helped as opposed to hurt. >> why do you think that? >> i mean, i've tapped into something. i've tapped into illegal immigration. i've tapped into other thing >> back now with devin. why did the campaign not want these tapes released? >> reporter: well, dan, the optics of this, of any deposition clearly are not great. trump is the most litigious presidential candidate in history. involved in more than 3500 legal actions over the past 30 years by one count. his campaign worried that these videos could be used against him in tv attack ads. dan? >> devin, thank you. for more on the state of the race, let's bring in the aforementioned political analyst matthew dowd, who joins us from
7:08 am
matthew, good morning. >> good morning. >> let me start with one of the headlines in "the new york times" this morning. donald trump, it says opens up new line of attack on hillary clinton. her marriage. trump now says he may bring up bill clinton's sexual indiscretions in the next debate. do you think that will actually happen? if he does it, will it be an effective line of attack? >> um, let me pause for a second. no. i mean, it's absolutely ridiculous. i think donald trump has to be careful in this. i have always remembered about which is you don't throw stones when you live in a glass house in the case of this. and i was thinking today. it's bonnie parker's birthday today. this is a little bit like clyde barrow saying i'm not as big of a thief as bonnie parker. i think it's a bad strategy. >> don't throw stones. a lot of people saying don't tweet at 3:00 a.m. let's talk about this twitter tirade about alicia machado. proof that hillary clinton got under his skin? and then numbers with women are
7:09 am
is he shooting himself in the foot with this fight here? >> well, i mean, since monday, since the debate, it's been a downhill slide for donald trump, mainly of his own volition. one thing we all learned when we were younger, don't communicate when you're angry, and nothing good happens after midnight. and in both those cases, donald trump violated both of those. he keeps this story going. he could have ended the story and moved on if he just engaged in it. he can't seem to let it go. >> as cecilia mentioned a few moments ago, the latest fox news poll has clinton up by three. it's essentially a dead heat. as you look over the latest polling, including the polling from the battleground states, what is your view on the state of the race right now? >> it's a fascinating thing, dan. the equilibrium of the race seems to be a hillary clinton three to four-point lead. every time it closes to even and then it expands and settles there. for most of the last 100 days,
7:10 am
and with the electoral college, slight advantage for hillary clinton. one thing to keep in mind when you look at the polls after the debate. hillary clinton did not change the perceptions of herself. there's a majority of people that still don't like her. a majority of people still don't trust her. what happened was is people got more unsettled in the aftermath of that debate than donald trump. the race trended back to that three or four-point hillary clinton lead. donald trump has to figure out a way to get this thing from the red zone into the end zone. he has not taken a lead in this race yet. the only way he can do that is probably with the next debate. >> thank you, matt dowd. appreciate your analysis as always. 38 days to go, b counting? the next presidential debate before that, just eight days away. it will air live here on abc. our own rock star martha raddatz is co-moderating. and the vice presidential candidates face off on tuesday. george and the entire team will be covering that. i'll be right there. live at 9:00 eastern right here on abc also. >> a lot to look forward to. if you're a political junkie. we move on now though to the female police officer in tulsa who is facing manslaughter
7:11 am
an unarmed african-amerielby noy she suffered temporary hearing loss during the incident, which is just one of many shootings setting off protests in recent weeks. clayton sandell has more. clayton, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, dan. the tulsa police officer accused of killing terence crutcher has now entered her plea. and now, her legal team is hinting at an unusual defense. officer betty shelby is out of jail on bond this morning, pleading not guilty to manslaughter. in the fatal shooting of terence crutcher. >> we have all the confidence that when everything is out there officer shelby will be going home to her family. >> shots fired! >> reporter: shelby's lawyer, scott wood, says the stress of the situation caused the officer to experience a type of deafness, claiming she never heard a fellow cop say he was ready with a less lethal taser gun.
7:12 am
true. but the real question is can that actually be a defense? >> reporter: officer shelby says crutcher was refusing commands. she fired when she thought he was reaching for a weapon. his family accuses shelby of pulling the trigger even though his hands were up and crutcher was unarmed. >> today was the first step towards the justice that we want for terence and his family. >> reporter: this as investigators release video in yet another deadly police shooting neasa protesters gathering on the streets for alfred olango. >> no justice. >> all: no peace! >> reporter: his sister says she called police to help her brother. but when they arrived, they say he refuses commands. then points something at the officers. they fire. killing him. that object turned out to be this electronic cigarette device. >> you killed my brother in front of me! >> reporter: now, those protests
7:13 am
overall pretty peaceful. officials have not decided if the officers in that case will face charges. to the deadly train crash in new jersey. one data recorder recovered so far. the damage from the crash is so severe, it's still not safe to access a second recorder in the front car. abc's eva pilgrim is outside the train station in hoboken. eva, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. investigators, this morning, still waiting to get access to the worst of this accident and that crucial evidence inside. >> are you okay? >> reporter: this morning, the damage to this train station slowing down investigators in their search for answers as to why a new jersey transit train came crashing into the platform, killing one person, injuring 114 others. >> because of the asbestos, the unsettled structures that we're not sure about, i'm not allowing anybody to go in there. >> reporter: trapped in that damage, key evidence. the event recorder.
7:14 am
the other end of the train. the info on one other event recorder now being downloaded at the manufacturer. investigators try to figure out how fast the train was going and if the brakes were used before it made that disastrous stop. >> we have multiple walking wounded. >> reporter: officials have not said how fast the train was going when it crashed into the hoboken train station. witnesses say the train was going three times faster than normal. the train hit with such violent force, part of the station's ceiling collapsed. debris raining down on hundreds of people waiting for trains. >> our objective is as always to but why it happened. so we can prevent it from happening again. >> reporter: investigators are planning to speak to the engineer, identified as 48-year-old thomas gallagher. preliminary drug and alcohol tests from him have come back negative. the ntsb is doing further tests. the ntsb confirming there are several videos of the accident. investigators are looking through the videos at this time. dan? cecilia? >> eva, thank you. a lot of other news

carolina shooting rampage. he was charged with murder in the death of his father and three counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting a teacher and two students in elementary school. one of the students is now on life support. and in italy, anti-mafia invest combat -- investigators found two paintings that were painted by vincent van gogh. they were found wrapped inside of a cloth inside of a farmhouse near naples. they were taken in a brazen heist in 2002. and a disgruntled customer went through an apple store in dijon, france, slamming and smashing iphones and ipads with a metal ball in his hand. the man was apparently infuriated. that's "en couleur" in french. because he had been denied a refund. he's now under arrest. estimates of damage upwards of $50,000. >> i've had moments like that over battery life. >> i got more for you.
7:17 am
finally, we all know what it's like when you're ready to board your flight or bus and you're all set to leave. you're traveling with someone else and they just can't keep up. check this out. >> that's president obama, of course. you recognize him standing at the door of air force one. after attending services for the late beckoning, shall we say, to his travel companion. bill clinton. famously climbing the stairs. off they went. we had a lip reader check that video. he went on to say, i said, get on the plane, man, or i'm leaving you. >> for real? >> yeah. no. >> he's notoriously tardy. >> he did not say that. >> he's always late, they say. >> i love the news with ron claiborne. partially factual. >> and bilingual. >> 99% is factual. >> including the fact that you
7:18 am
>> exactly. >> ph.d.. take you to maryland -- am i next? >> yeah, you're next. >> you're next, go for it. >> to maryland. the home of john hopkins where they pump out ph.d.s for real. this is ocean city. one of many spots that have gotten flooding in the past couple of days. six inches or more of rain there. really putting a strain on some of the infrastructure in maryland. but also in north carolina, all the way back through the ohio river valley and the great lakes. this is a system that's been sitting and we're still seeing that today. we have warnings for the coast. and especially for the chesapeake there. high tide, 1 to 3 feet. more rain today. drizzly conditions up and down the i-95 corridor. what you have had the past couple of days is what you're going to get today. maybe a little bit heavier across parts of the carolinas. meanwhile, out west, a strong system coming in. that pumps up the winds, not offshore, but on shore with this low. that increases the fire danger i think here especially across eastern parts of so cal and las vegas.
7:19 am
an hour. this will bring cooler air. this may bring snow to the sierras and cascades. >> it is saturday. in october. that means college football. we'll talk about that and recap our top story, hurricane matthew in the caribbean in about ten minutes. >> thank you, sir. now shall we turn to the great white north in the final days of the royals' canadian road trip.
