this morning on "world news now," the campaigns react to last night's second presi this morning on "world news now," the campaigns react to last night's second presidential debate. >> donald trump and hillary clinton wasting no time. clinton hitting trump for the video that sent the campaign into a tailspin over the weekend. so was trump able to recover? we're going to go live to the debate hall for full analysis. matthew moves on, but not would the deadly hurricane leaving a washed out path of destruction with deadly flooding in the carolinas forcing thousands to be rescued from homes and vehicles. tom brady lacing up and on the gridiron following deflate-gate suspension, the star opens up after the game about how rusty he felt in the big return. if that was rusty, man, the nfl is in trouble. we're doing some monday morning quarterbacking on this october 10th.
3:01 am
>> good morning, everybody, i'm kendis gibson. i'm not afraid to shake your hand. >> no? >> no, absolutely, yes. >> hopefully we'll be nicer to each other than the candidates were today. >> i'll lurk behind you for the entire show. >> i'm diane macedo. we have a lot to talk about this morning, end the rematch in st. louis. hillary clinton and donald trump unleashing a barrage of attacks in debate number two. >> as we mentioned, the tension was obvious from the very onset as both candidates opted out of the traditional handshake. donald trump tries now to recover from an explosive video that rocked his campaign just he appeared with three of bill clinton's accusers, and a rape victim whose attacker was represented by hillary clinton. karen travers is joining us from the debate hall in st. louis right now. karen, good morning. >> good morning, kendis and diane. if you expected fireworks last night, you got them. for days, donald trump laid out his debate playbook. he was making it very clear that he thought that bill clinton's
3:02 am
election conversation. well, the key question last night, then, was would he hold his fire like he did in the first debate? that answer came very quickly, and the personal attacks did not stop there. straight out of the gate, the tension was clear. no handshake between the two bitter rivals. donald trump under fire for that 2005 audio recording with his crude comments about women. >> this was locker room talk. i'm not proud of it. i apol i apologize to the american people. >> reporter: hillary clinton with days to prep her response saying trump is not fit to be president. >> i think it's clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is. >> reporter: and then 15 minutes in, trump goes nuclear, accusing former president bill clinton of sexual misconduct. >> if you look at bill clinton, far worse. mine are words. his was action.
3:03 am
willing to engage. >> i'm reminded of what my friend, michelle obama, advised us all. when they go low, you go high. >> reporter: the two candidates battled it out over clinton's e-mails and private server. >> it's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of donald trump is not in charge of the law in our country. >> because you'd be in jail. >> reporter: and trump defending himself against reports that he may have avoided federal taxes for nearly 18 years. >> did you use that $916 million loss to avoid paying personal federal income taxes? >> of course i do. of course i do. she complains that donald trump took advantage of the tax code. why not change it when you were senator? >> reporter: and it's back to the battlegrounds today. hillary clinton is campaigning in ohio. donald trump is just next door in pennsylvania. kendis and diane, you can be sure that last night's debate will loom very large over the campaign a trail today. >> absolutely.
3:04 am
anything seen before, what do pundits say, did he stop the bleeding? >> reporter: he did. that was what donald trump's goal was last night. it was an incredible weekend. you had many republicans saying he should drop out of the race, and many elected officials who gave him support withdrew that support, including john mccain who stood by trump in a very rocky period and despite strong personal attacks. do night, and he was not a disaster for those republicans, and in that sense, it's a win for him because tomorrow morning, this week, next couple days, you're not going to see this steady line, steady drum beat of republicans hammering donald trump like you saw over the weekend. >> and, karen, something unorthodox, before the debate started, donald trump held his own press conference with accusers of bill clinton.
3:05 am
that and having the women there, and was hillary's response, they go low, we go high, was that enough? >> reporter: yeah, diane, i don't think he gained anything out of it. like we said, donald trump had indicated for days that he was going to go after bill clinton, so this was not a surprise to the clinton campaign. she was prepared. she knew how to answer the questions last night, but that facebook live appearance was a surprise. and it just popped up out of nowhere. donald trump standing last night with three women who accused bill clinton of sexual misconduct. but what were they hoping to get out of it? they certainly got a burst of activity on the cable networks before the debate, but once the debate started, it was ultimately about donald trump's answer to that audio recording from 2005, and then his own attacks against bill clinton. now, as for hillary clinton's answer, i think it was successful. she didn't answer the question at all. she clearly didn't want to go there. you know, if you're going to avoid an answer, why not bring
3:06 am
approval ratings, a good buddy to turn to for assist. >> a surprising moment at the end of the debate? >> reporter: there was. the debate ended on somewhat a positive note like a pallet cleanser after 90 minutes of a lot of intense perm attacks. very interesting question of say something nice about the guy next to you. here's what they said. >> i respect his children. his children are incredibly able and devoted, and i think that says a lot about donald. >> but she does fight hard and she doesn't quit and she doesn't give up, and i consider that to be a very good trait. >> reporter: some very nice words, but notably, both of them answered about themselves and how great they were. so yeah, he's okay, she's okay, but let's talk about me, too. >> add that in, right? >> that's really giving her respect by saying she's a fighter.
3:07 am
you. moving on now, and hillary clinton said she felt great about the debate, but added she was surprised by, quote, the absolute avalanche of falsehoods. mike pence tweeted that it was a big debate win for trump and said that he was proud to stand with him. for more, let's go to abc chief political analyst matthew dowd. >> in this debate, trump was behind falling in the polls. he didn't improve himself. he needs a win and he needed a win. i think when you look at points in the debate, over the course of the debate, donald trump did fine at moments. she did fine in moments. there were lows on both sides. but basically, get out slight points to her winning the debate, but makes no difference in the polls. she walks out of the debate with a solid lead that she came into the debate with, and donald trump has one opportunity left, the next debate that changes dynamics. >> and that third and final debate takes place on wednesday, the 19th in one of the crucial swing states of nevada. joins live for that and stay
3:08 am
more on the debate, and more on "america this morning," and "gma." we move on to the aftermath of hurricane matthew. the main concern this morning is dangerous flooding, particularly in parts of north carolina. the area around fayetteville, north carolina, received more than three months of rain in just a matter of 14 hours over the weekend. look at those scenes. rescuers pulled more than a thousand people from the fast moving water. the death toll from the storm is remain missing. the cost of the storm won't be known for some time but expected to be the nation's costliest storm since sandy four years ago. and the hurricane devastated haiti. the first shrimps of united nations food aid are arriving in hard hit areas. reports now indicate at least 900 people killed in the storm that whipped haiti with 145 miles per hour winds. the numbers will likely rise. there are concerns now about the spread of illness across areas
3:09 am
complete. now to california where we're learning some new details about the man suspected of killing two palm springs police officers. 26-year-old john felix expected to be charged with first degree murder this week. authorities say it started saturday when felix's mother called police to say her son was causing a disturbance. shortly after four officers responded, felix allegedly opened fire. the fallen officers identified as veteran officer jose gilbert vega, and officer lesley zerebny. who had been with the department just 18 months. federal investigators are trying to figure out how two trains side swiped each other on new york's long island railroad this weekend. 33 people were hurt when a train doing maintenance caused a commuter train to derail. it came ten days after a train in jersey crashed into a terminal, killing one and injuring more than 100. more than a dozen people were injured after a climbing obstacle collapsed during a race in louisiana.
3:10 am
event. 5,500 people were running the obstacle course saturday. there were 20 to 30 people on the wooden structure when it first began to lean left and then collapse. four of those people remain hospitalized this morning. >> scary stuff. i've actually done that exact race. >> yeah? >> grateful it didn't happen at that time, and hopefully everyone recovers fully there. on to some lighter news, though. >> okay. >> forget getting a reservation this week in ann arbor, michigan, at the ruth's steakhouse bass it's booked solid through thursday because on of a football game and a wager, you could say. >> not because it's restaurant week. >> discounting food by however much michigan beat rutgers. 1% for every point. >> a great idea -- >> but. >> the wolverines demolished them, 78-0. the discount was capped at 50%. the manager joked said maybe the steakhouse should have waited
3:11 am
the promotion. >> breathing a big sigh of relief, i bet, for that 50% tab. >> can you imagine what that manager was thinking as the game kept going and going and going? >> all right. go rutgers. better luck next time. when we come back, long awaited return of a superstar. >> tom brady on the field for the first time since last season. were they able to shake off the deflate-gate cobwebs? also, more ahead from last night's presidential debate. after a weekend dominated by trump's transgressions, our deputy political director weighs in next. join the discussion on facebook, wnnfans.com, and twitter @abcwnn. you're watching "world news now." bcwnn.

it's just awfully good someone with the temperament of donald trump is not in charge of law in our country. >> because you'd be in jail. >> that was one of the many tense exchanges from last night's second presidential debate. >> it was tense, indeed. abc's deputy political director shushannah walshe joins us with her take on the night's big moments. with no love loss between the two, no handshake, clinton had hate in her heart, calling her the devil several times and that trump doesn't have the discipline according to clinton. how effective was the
3:16 am
>> reporter: good morning, kendis. good morning, diane. i think not that effective if your goal is to get more voters over to your campaign, and, of course, win the election. why? because these voters here in the united states have made it clear they do not want to get down in the gutter with these candidates anymore. and, tonight, we saw them get in the gutter more than we've seen before starting at the very beginning. as you said, no handshake, but then also donald trump's signaling a new strategy in the campaign bringing in the bill clinton accusers from decades ago, sitting them in the audience, and so it's a real new low from an already pretty low campaign. >> and trump did offer an apology from that 2005 recording of him talking about women. do you think he did enough to put that issue behind him? >> reporter: i think with some voters, it definitely won't be enough. he, again, blamed it on that
3:17 am
and that won't be enough for a lot of voters who are undecided. and, of course, we know a lot of female voters we know in the last abc news/washington post poll, donald trump with a 19-point gender gap with women. i think this is a question that will keep on getting asked over the next month. >> no doubt. plenty of remarkable moments, but one interesting one is when trump split with his running mate, mike pence, about the policy in syria. how significant was that? >> reporter: it was significant, it was a stunning moment. it was also the most talked about moment on facebook. and it was incredible because not only did donald trump disagree with his running mate on syria policy, but he said he had not spoken to him about it. this is a time where, of course, the trump campaign is going through crisis, but the larger party is going through a crisis. it's not a time for the actual ticket to look like they are not united either. >> any predictions for the week ahead? >> reporter: i think it's going to continue to see a pretty
3:18 am
i think that tonight saw a new strategy from the trump campaign to bring up these old accusers of bill clinton. we've seen donald trump say he's going to bring these women up, but we've also seen forces in the campaign tell him not to. kellyanne conway, his campaign manager, and his daughter didn't want donald trump to bring up bill clinton in this way. but, of course, others in the campaign won out. we'll continue to see this scorched strategy until november 8th. >> our abc political director, thank you. in the next half hour, new trouble for samsung. a growing number of replacement phones for the galaxy note 7 are now catching fire, including one that belonged to a 13-year-old girl who says hers ignited right in her hands. breaking news this morning how samsung is now responding. but first, the other face-off in cleveland. how patriots' quarterback, tom

donald trump's vulgar remarks caught by an open microphone in 2005. >> this was locker room talk. i'm not proud of it. i apologize to my family. i apologize to the american people. certainly, i'm not proud of it. but this is locker room talk. >> reporter: clinton's accusers sitting in the audience did not take long to deflect to the former president. >> if you like at bill clinton, far worse. mine are words, his actions. >> reporter: hillary clinton did not take the bait, but blasted trump er >> what we all saw and heard on friday was donald talking about women, what he thinks about women, what he does to women, and he has said that the video doesn't represent who he is, but i think it's clear to anyone who heard it it represents exactly who he is. but i think it's clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is. >> reporter: trump wasting no time pouncing on her e-mails,

3:36 am
buzz online about mike pence possibly dropping off the trump ticket. what's the latest on that front? >> reporter: well, mike pence seemed to put the nail in the coffin on that. last night, he spoke to donald trump after the debate. we were told it was a very positive conversation, and pence congratulated trump on the debate, and he actually tweeted, too, so publicly tweeted that donald trump had a big win last night, and that he is looking forward to working with him to make america great again, so, a very public sign of support from mike pence, certainly, going to put to rest some of the talk, but that was really something over the last couple of days, the idea that as more republicans were jumping ship, that his running mate would be one of them. >> so questionable whether he'll attend events scheduled for later today. we'll see. >> and, karen, in addition to some standout moments in terms
