this man caught on camera screaming racial slurs. >> you think not eating for eight days is hard. [ bleep ] take a walk to africa. >> aimed at mizzou grad student jonathan butler who had mounted a hunger strike in protests of alleged racial intolerance. reports of the kkk on site circulating. at these two campus buildings thrown into lockdown mode including the black culture center. >> i'm getting a lot of messages about students feeling unsafe. >> reporter: several hours later officials giving the all-clear confirming there was no immediate threat. this incident comes just a day after racial tensions reached a boiling point. >> i'm resigning as president of the university of missouri system. >> reporter: president tim wolfe resigning monday over the handling of what students call institutional racism on campus. >> let this be a testament to all of the athletes across the country that you do have a power. >> reporter: and university offs say they are investigating those threats and working with law
keep the campus safe. robin, george. >> all right, alex, thank you very much. >> intense situation there. the other big story, the republican debate in wisconsin, the candidates facing off on the economy and immigration and abc's tom llamas was there for it all. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. the debate stage was smaller but there were still some big fights. no personal attacks this time. the disputes were over positions and it was a big night for senators cruz and rubio and jeb bush showing more energy. overnight, the republicans battling to be president making their case on the economy and national defense. a debate more policy -- >> marco, marco, how is it conservative -- >> reporter: but some pumps. >> how is it conservative to add a trillion dollars in military expenditures? >> we can't even have an economy if we're not safe. there are radical jihadists beheading people and crucifying christians.
a radical cleric trying to get a new weapon. taking over the south china sea, safer -- i don't believe, i know that the world is safer and better place when america is the strongest military power in the world. >> reporter: all of the irs. >> there are more words in the bible. and not a one of them is as >> reporter: and dr. ben carson, a leading candidate, slamming the news coverage of alleged discrepancies in his life story. vetted. what i do have a problem with is being lied about. >> reporter: on the economy, the retired neurosurgeon appearing to change his position on raising the minimum wage. >> i would not raise it. >> reporter: but back in may carson favored increasing it. i asked him about the change. so just to be clear are you in favor of raising the minimum wage or you're not in favor of it. >> i personally am not in favor of it but i'm in favor of having the discussion because i believe that the way you do something in a pluralistic society is you put
it out in the open so that everybody understands what's going on. >> reporter: donald trump at one point playing referee criticizing carly fiorina for cutting people off. >> why does she keep interrupting everybody? >> yeah. >> reporter: and fighting for jeb bush to get a chance to speak. >> governor -- >> you should let jeb speak. >> thank you, donald, for allowing me to speak at the debate. that's really nice of you. i really appreciate that. what a generous man you are. >> reporter: but later bush clashed with trump over immigration refusing to support mass deportation of undocumented immigrants. >> it's just not possible. and it's not embracing american values. and it would tear communities apart. and it would send a signal that we're not the kind of country that i know america is. >> reporter: what we didn't see last night, not a single candidate not even donald trump who was talking tough on the campaign trail going after dr. ben carson and so many people were talking about the bush/rubio rematch, that never happened.
the next debate five weeks away. george. >> thanks, tom and one of the candidates, senator marco rubio joins us now. some more good reviews for you, senator, last night. you stayed out of that debate between jeb bush, john kasich and donald trump over immigration and trump's mass deportation plan. kasich called it silly, not adult. is he right? >> well, first of all, pie position on it is well stated and that is we have to deal with immigration in three steps. we can't do it all at once. tried to in 2013 and the american people don't trust the federal government so we have to begin by proving to people that illegal immigration numbers are down significantly. the second step would be to modernize our legal immigration system so it's merit based and after those two things we have to responsibly but realistically deal with people here illegally and as i said if you're a criminal, haven't been here very long you can't stay. for everyone else you'd have to pass a background check, learn english, spay a fine and start paying taxes and you'll get a work permit for ten years.
that's my position. it's been well stated for a long time and i think it's the only way forward on immigration at this point. >> a lot think ted cruz could be your toughest opposition. he seemed to send a shot across your bow taking on the issue of sugar subsidies of the you's gotten a lot of money from them in the past. that's drawn criticism. rubio and big sure. your sugar high is a new low a betrayal of conservative principles. how do you respond gentleman. >> i'm prepared to get rid of the sugar program. every country in the world that has one has a subsidy and when they get rid of their, i'm prepared to get rid of theirs. >> you know that's not going to happen, though. >> but i'm not going to wipe out an american industry that happens to have a lot of workers in florida by unilaterally disarming them. it has to be fair. they have huge advantages. they don't have an epa or labor
we could just even the field, if they -- if other countries that we're competing against get rid of their programs i'll be the first one working to get rid of ours but i'm not going to destroy an american industry that employs people in my state. >> there was a moment off mike during one of the commercial breaks, you headed over to governor bush, jeb bush and just seemed to ice you. what happened there? >> oh, someone showed moo he that video last night. we were fine. look, we're running for president of the united states and so -- but i don't take any of it personal. there was nothing behind it. i know it makes for an interesting vine video but it wasn't anything of meaning. >> senator rubio, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. thanks very much. all right, george, thank you. abc's chief business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis, you can see is here fact checking a couple of big moments from the two front-runners and, rebecca ex at one point rand paul called out donald trump about a big trade deal. who is right?
>> this was a really important question last night. robin, it was about why donald trump is opposed to the tpp trade deal and listen to what he says about china and how the other candidates respond. >> almost everybody takes advantage of the united states, china in particular because they're so good. it's the number one abuser of this country. we are losing jobs like nobody's ever lost jobs before. i want to bring jobs back into this country. >> hey, gerard, we might want to point out china is not part of this deal. >> true. it's true. >> that's right. >> that's right. >> so you have kasich and paul, they're correct on this. china is not part of the trade deal. 12 countries are including japan and australia as well as the united states and what's interesting here, military strategists actually think what's vital to this deal is the part that economically speaking china is not a part of the deal and actually think the fact that china is out is it a big reason for the deal's success. >> we see all the countries that are. >> all of them right here. not china.
>> not china. the debate began talking about minimum wage. they had protesters outside there in milwaukee and the candidates were asked about that and ben carson had something interesting to say about minimum wage. >> every time we raise the mimg wage, the number of jobless people increases. >> so is he right? >> so i talked to a number of economists on this. they're deeply divided on this question. not all of the time is there job loss when there are wage hike, however, there can be job loss associated with wage hikes and the university of chicago did a study of the 42 top economists in the country, they asked what would happen if the wages were increased, the minimum wage to 15. 40% undied. between the remaining 60%, they were totally split. >> so between the remaining 60%. >> totally split yes and no. >> rebecca, thank you very much. george. >> thank you, guys, let's brake it down with jon karl, matthew dowd, are here. jon, a lot of substance. not too many fireworks. did it change anything.
>> not really. rubio seemed to be the winner, not a huge win for him. had an assist from rand paul when challenged on foreign policy. good for ted cruz. jeb bush had his best bedate so far but not enough cho thank the dynamic. overall it doesn't change the dynamic. you still have trump and carson doing nothing to move them from their front-runner status. george, we are almost at halftime when it comes to debates. four debates. four debates where donald trump has been the front-runner. he has not been significantly challenged. he has not stumbled and that means another win ultimately for donald trump. >> five-week gap until the next debate. >> i actually think this is starting to come into line like the college football playoffs where we're basically coming down to four candidates that are left in the race, trump, carson, rubio and cruz and i think if we had another debate where rubio and cruz did very well, if these were stocks, after this debate if these folks were stocks i'd put a hold on carson and trump because i think there's still some things missing there and put a buy on cruz and rubio and i'd pull a sell on jeb bush.
>> pretty low right now. >> i would get out as soon as you can because his 6% or 7% is not going up after the debate. he did better but not good enough to leap over. >> matthew dowd, jon karl, thanks very much. later i'll head to washington for an exclusive interview with president obama and we'll bring you that on friday. to you to that fiery plane crash in ohio. a small jet going down in a residential area killing at least two people on board. abc's david kerley is on the scene for us in akron this morning. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this morning crash investigators and may mass casualty team will be here where that small jet crashed. we have con fired that two have been killed but authorities are unable to confirm what the jet's owner and family members are saying that there were nine people on board this small jet. >> there's some sort of explosion on mogadore road. >> reporter: this is what they found. two homes ablaze and the remnants of a business jet.
than answers as to why a plane plunged into a residential neighborhood. >> we have a plane into a house. heavy fire. we have a lot of wires down. >> reporter: the small jet a hawker 25 can carry up to ten passengers, it was en route from dayton to akron but just more than a mile from its destination the jet goes down, authorities have not confirmed how many were flying on the aircraft. they do say they don't expect to find any survivors. at least two confirmed dead. the pilot and co-pilot. witnesses say the jet appeared to be having trouble before crashing. >> have you found the plane? >> yeah, i believe the plane -- it's in the brush. >> reporter: the shock and horror of the crash captured in this woman's face who says she was video chatting at the time. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: you don't think a plane would drop in a residential area like this. this is crazy. >> reporter: beth montgomery is one of the residents. these anormally home every day but on tuesdays she has lunch
>> if i don't meet my son on tuesdays, i would have been there. >> reporter: despite the devastation, she's counting her blessings. >> i have my life and that is most important. >> reporter: this morning, a new jersey woman who is driven to ohio says her sister was one of the passengers on board. >> between the siblings we started doing some detective work and made some calls and checked some flight plans and kind of put two and two together that it was her. learned there was no mayday call. there was no distress call. and there are only questions this morning, what actually happened to this jet less than two miles from the airport. why did it go down? robin and george. >> a lot of questions still coming. thanks. we turn to the first blizzard of the season hitting the mountains hard. snow falling in denver right now and the storm is on the move. ginger is tracking it all. >> this veterans day storm has now moved from the mountains into the foothills so denver, 3 to 6 inches. it is going to be a wreck of a commute to matter where you are
just east of denver especially because we're going to see blizzard conditions in eastern colorado, parts of nebraska and kansas. there are wind advisories and warnings from new mexico to new york. a wide-spanning fast-moving storm that will pummel the midwest this average with severe weather. i think anywhere from des moines to mepeoria sees the best shot at damaging wind and an isolated tornado. chicago to shreveport, you're in it too later this evening and behind it it is windy and cold, serious introduction to winter. >> windy and cold here today too. thank you. those daily fantasy sports betting sites take a big hit.
seconds. >> amy has the morning's other top stories starting with that crackdown on fantasy sports sites. >> that's right. new trouble, big trouble for daily fantasy sports sites, fanduel and draftkings. new york's attorney general say they amount to illegal gambling and ordered them to stop accepting bets from new york residents or face criminal charges. the companies insist they are running games of skill, not chance. and therefore shouldn't be subject to gambling regulations. new york's decision could pave the way, though, for more states to take action. well, more than 100 bikers have now been indicted in connection with this shoot-out between motorcycle gangs and police at a texas restaurant back in may. nine people were killed. the bikers are charged with organized criminal activity. and in virginia, three men are accused of plotting to

throwing their gum there and the idea discuss stuck. >> i knew that was coming. >> i did ha for you. i'm here for you, amy. thank you. . more ahead on this veterans day and an abc exclusive, the skier seen plumbing 1600 feet down a mountain now speaking out. we'll talk about the air bag that helped save his life. also ahead, a murder mystery, a mcdonald's mogul's wife found dead in her home. we'll have the search for the killer right now right here on "gma." we also have a big live challenge. it's begun. hundreds of dollars worth of brand-new phones taking the plunge. will they survive?

phones to try it out. we've got motorola standing by right now to watch it happen so here we go. on the count of three, guys, we'll drop it from five feet. three, two, one. ah. >> ouch. >> what do we got? >> it worked. it's still good. >> adrienne from motorola right here smiling feeling good. feeling optimistic. >> i never had a doubt. >> you're not coming down yet, are you? >> i'm not. let's go higher, guys. let's go up. we'll go up. motorola does not guarantee this. it only says the screen is shatterproof for drops up to five feet. we're going to go up to ten feet now, so let's get the audience to put on those safety goggles just in case. here we go. we're going to drop -- count with me. three, two, one. oh. >> here we go. what do we got? we have a perfectly good phone, everybody. that's what we got. >> wow! >> it works. how about that?
were you a little nervous. >> no, not at all. >> when you test it do you take it to greater heights? sfwle we put it through a lot of extreme testing and there's five layers of screen technology in there that is guaranteed not to shatter. >> i'm going to tell you right now you need to get a phone like this. i've seen your phone. it's a mess. it truly is a mess. >> it's not actually glass. >> no. no. it's not. it's actually a flexible display. >> like a plexiglas. >> well, it's -- >> top secret technology but it's really truly flexible so michael could fumble this and -- >> i never fumble. great job, gio. thank you. you passed the test and now we're going to take it back inside to amy. >> we have another test here in our series. "gma" body proud with model and body activist ashley graham. this morning we are challenging the notion of what it means to be healthy by putting two models to a health test. they're the same age, almost exactly the same height but with one important twist.
they are top models who behind every day in photos and on the catwalk. but we want to know is the size 2 as healthy as a size 14? we'll find out by putting them through fitness tests. first up ashley graham, age 28. stands tall at 5'9" and wears a size. 14. no history of diabetes or heart disease and exercises regularly. >> i do all kinds of cardio and weight lifting. i do classes. >> reporter: and abeba davis, size 5'10" and is a size 2. has diabetes in her family and exercise, not so much. >> i walk my dog a lot. >> walking counts. >> the two start their exam with our own dr. jennifer ashton. >> we'll do some basic height, weight, check some basic blood work that's kind of like the barometer of overall health.
diabetes screen, a nonfasting cholesterol panel and then just kind of see where you are. >> good. perfect. >> questions? >> no, take my blood. >> okay. >> next up, abeba. do you think you're in good shape. >> no. >> i think physically i've been blessed genetically. >> don't be nervous. >> but that's not all. our models head to crunch for a fitness test. >> i heard you're going to put me through hard core regimen. >> yes, we'll get an assessment as well as a fit test on the treadmill. let's go. >> we'll get you five minutes of max. we're going to go ahead and do an overhead squat assessment. i want you to perform a series of 15 squats. >> okay. >> and abbeba.
>> okay. >> you're going to have both feet facing directly towards me and airports are going to be nice and long overhead. >> so which model is a picture of health? find out live right now. >> that's right and we have ashley with us and dr. jennifer ashton as well so dr. ashton why don't you tell us the results. >> the molt of truth. so first thing we did, we checked blood pressure. head-to-head, both in the normal range. ashley's is a little better than abeba and nonfasting diabetes test called the hemoglobin a1. c. both normal. you did a little better than abeba. cholesterol, ldl. both normal. this is where abeba did a little better than ashley. we want to thank quest diagnostics for running these and put you on the treadmill and did a fitness test both passed pretty well. you are 28 but i want to be clear. weight is relevant.
it's one thing that we look at. we want to assess that today. you both did great and also want to assess it down the road in the few fracture. that's why living a healthy lifestyle is so important. >> what do you make of those? >> i'm not surprised. it's clear this is a very healthy woman right here. >> i love it. >> yes, you are. >> you started at the very beginning of your day, what do you do each and every morning. >> i hike to start with hot water and lemon and do -- it's alkalines my body but i have agreen juice. i swear a green juice a day keeps the doctor away. >> like a serving of vegetables. >> spinach, kale, apple, lemon, ginger. >> about 2 1/2 cups of vegetables per day and get that in a nice juice in the morning. try to use the pulp so you get the 2350iber. >> a little sweet. >> it's great. >> you guys, you're already done. >> then in terms of keeping your body fit. you are fit. you proved that today. what do you do? >> thank you, girl. >> squats, arms, i am always
traveling, i never settle down. i don't know where i'm going to be. so -- >> just have my juice while you work out. >> arms are really important and i always like to go this way and then, doctor, sorry, i'll come forward and i like to go out and like to do it with a squat and make sure -- >> full body work ute. >> make sure that your butt is out like you're going to sit down and knees cannot go over your toes. >> anyone who follows you on instagram knows you're doing these every day. >> women to did weights. they need to do resistance training. as important as cardio and your form is on point. >> you keep working out. i'll keep drinking and ginger, i'll see you.
let's get some "pop." >> we begin with this. remember word problems in math class. i don't know about you, kind of my worst nightmare. here's the story of one girl who completely schooled her teacher on an exam that included a word problem in which four groups of couples swapped dates for four different school events. students were supposed to determine which girl ended up with which boy at the next event. but fourth grader maddy douglas' answer is classic. she wrote on this paper, you can't read it, i can't answer this problem because my mom says according to girl code, you shouldn't date a friend's ex-boyfriend. >> that is great. >> i love it. >> she didn't get credit for the answer but her teacher did admit she made a very good point. >> also in "pop news" this morning, i don't know about you guys how you felt getting up this morning. this otter's reaction, my

what i saw you did exactly that. at points i said, is that julia roberts? >> when you've been in the business this long and people feel they know you as well as they do, you want them to go and enjoy a movie and not think about who you are. >> did it help to have your husband the cinematographer on the film. did it help to have him there when you got out of a heavy scene. >> it helped in a couple of ways because, first of all, i try to impress him so much that really as much as i try to impress my director, i just think, is he -- okay. >> are you really trying to impress your husband. >> he's looking. >> oh. >> really. >> of course. he's my person. >> i love that. >> he's my person. and part of it is we would spend the whole day together. by the time we're home we're not talking about work, it's just all about the kids which was amazing. >> you have any parenting tips for me? >> my daughter said to me last year we were talking about school, and she was having some frustration and she said, mommy,
you just don't know what it's like and i said to her, guess what i'm going to do today, i'm going to sit in the back of your classroom all day today and understand what it's like. by the time the bell rang to go home, this is what i know, no child wants to get in the car and have their parents say, how was your day? >> because you sat there. >> the relentless pursuit of knowledge and then you get in the car with this new safe moment, how was your day? what did you do? tell me the whole thing. it's like, no. >> and there's something i hear you play at the dinner table called family dinner game in family dinner game. >> where you ask questions around the table. >> uh-huh. >> do you have questions. >> i have a few questions. >> i have questions. what's your middle name. >> anthony. hmm what is the first thing you look at when you see somebody. >> i guess, you know, your eye,

stuffing sandwich than anything else. >> easy on the wallet. >> we have to have dessert, mike. >> two favorite desserts into one, chocolate pumpkin pie. and the tip here is because it is a loose custardy base and you can make the pie crist the day before you could make the custard the day before, it's just pumpkin, melted chocolate, a little cream, eggs, brown sugar and then the spice, clove, ginger, nutmeg and then you just take this, you bake the crust at 425 the day ahead of time. you take that beautiful custard and pour it in. >> soits >> it's so good. >> bake it at 350 for an hour. >> how do you transport it to grandma's house. >> i get a good box and bring it on over. >> all right. i thought there was a towel or something involved is there all on our website.
