8:00 am
saturday morning. good morning, america. campaign countdown just weeks before the first voting and the gloves are officially off. apology over that new york values comment. >> i apologize to the millions of new yorkers who have been let down by liberal politicians in that state. >> will this dust-up help or hurt him at the polls? meanwhile, donald trump's pizza stop and getting some surprising support from hillary clinton. we break it all down for you this morning. market meltdown. stocks sink again. a nearly 400-point dow dive. the worst start to a new year ever, so what's behind it and what should you be doing right now? air scare. the nightmare at 34,000 feet. >> i was crying. that's how crazy it was.
8:01 am
her back with a broken nose. the severe turbulence to blame inside a terrifying journey. and we have a winner. the couple living the powerball dream. >> we just wanted a little piece of the pie. now i'm real grateful we got the big piece of the pie. >> caught on camera. the moment they are handed that magic ticket. what they plan to do come monday morning. would you do the same? and what about the other winners? who are they? a lotto mystery. hey, good morning. america. paula is off this morning. very happy to have cecilia vega on board. good morning to you and you're here on a morning when there is a lot of news including an al qaeda attack on a hotel popular with westerners overseas. we'll have the latest on that. and look at this. this is the front page of "the wall street journal" this morning. u.s. stocks slide in global rout. >> rough, rough morning.
8:02 am
this is the backdrop as the race for the white house heats up and this weekend is key in the campaign. we are now only about two weeks away from the very first votes in iowa. on both sides right now, tight races and tension, in particular that showdown right there between one-time friends donald trump and ted cruz, and just a few minutes ago, trump upping the ante on twitter. abc's mary bruce leading us off from south carolina. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, cecilia. good morning. well, they are neck and neck in no question, that bromance between trump and cruz is over. trump is still hammering cruz about his birth questioning his eligibility to be president and cruz isn't just hitting trump in return he's also now in a war of words >> i apologize. >> reporter: this morning, ted cruz is saying sorry, not sorry. >> you're right, donald trump, hillary clinton and andrew cuomo and bill de blasio have all
8:03 am
happy to to apologize. i apologize to the millions of new yorkers who have been let down by liberal politicians in that state. >> reporter: new yorkers are outraged after the republican candidate questioned the city's values. >> i am disgusted at the insult that ted cruz threw at this city. >> reporter: even lady liberty is giving him the finger. the feud escalated after cruz lashed out at new york while taking a shot at donald trump. >> but everyone understands that the values in new york city are socially liberal or pro-abortion or pro-gay marriage, focused around money and the media. >> reporter: but trump got the last word. >> when the world trade center came down, i saw something that no place on earth could have handled more beautifully, more humanely than new york. >> reporter: those comments spurred hillary clinton to do the impossible, agree with trump.
8:04 am
new yorkers value hard work, diversity, tolerance, resilience and building better lives for our families." and another first, trump at a pizza ranch. the must stop rite of passage for presidential candidates in iowa. >> i like the pizza. >> reporter: pizza but no more hits against cruz for now. >> i think i've already done that. >> reporter: but those hits will likely keep on coming today as trump and cruz appear at the same tea party convention here in south carolina. dan. >> mary, thank you so much. to talk about here, so let's go abt news political analyst matt, good morning. when donald trump says lawsuits have been filed as he just said in a tweet, do we know what that even means and is this issue of canadian citizenship or american citizenship a genuine vulnerability for cruz? >> well, donald trump obviously woke up today on whatever side of the bed and started moving on the tweets this morning and i actually think this is a real vul jeshlt for ted cruz.
8:05 am
everybody sort of looked at this and said it's unsettled whether for or against ted. i think it's a question. any time people walk into a voting booth and there's a question mark, they'll go for some other alternative so i think ted will have to deal with this and donald will keep pushing this over the course of this campaign. >> but just to clarify he's not the one filing lawsuits here. >> no, there's a trial lawyer in houston that filed a lawsuit yesterday, i think, but syria alluded in this his this morning that others would come. i think he's just raising the question there is a question over ted and so people will have a question when they go to vote. >> all right. what about this new york values dust-up. does that help or hurt cruz? >> well, obviously ted -- it's a dog whistle sort of godless, heathen "dex and the city" new yorkers and trying to appeal to new hampshire. i don't think it's effective and i think there could be hypocrisy blowback. here's a guy whose wife worked for goldman sachs who had health insurance from goldman sachs who went to princeton and who raises money i think
8:06 am
hypocrisy will be a problem. this race has come from best friends forever though to "gangs of new york" and now. well put, matt dowd. don't forget the democrats are still running and they've got a big debate tomorrow night. we'll talk about that as this programming note. "this week with george stephanopoulos" tomorrow morning, george is going to go one-on-one with donald trump himself. matt, thank you very much and, cecilia, over to you. >> okay. ride on wall street. about their 401(k)s this morning. abc news chief business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here to break it all down. they're calling this the worst start to a new year ever. what's behind this all? >> it's looking really bad, cecilia, and a lot of people who are looking at the markets are seeing another big hit. the market fell another 400 points on friday ahead of a long weekend for wall street. that is a loss of more than 8% so far for this year. now, part of the blame here is oil.
8:07 am
that is the lowest level for oil prices in 12 years. now, from a consumer standpoint you're benefiting from it because you're paying less at the pump but the issue is all the energy companies in this country. their profits are getting eaten into because of prices this low and for people who have jobs in the oil and gas industry right now, this is a big concern because their jobs are now looking like they are at risk. some of them have even been lost already. there is also china. china's markets are causing big fears here because their markets are down 20% from the december highs. they have been getting hit time and time begin, cecilia, and what we've seen over and over again this year when china's markets tank, ours do too. >> hits us here at home. concern and fear the words you mentioned. what is happening with people's 401(k)s, so many people looking at their portfolio saying what do i do? >> a lot of white knuckle days for those retirees especially. the average 401(k) of $92,000 has already lost about $7500 in
8:08 am
now, the unsatisfying answer is the accurate answer. it's the one people hear time and time again in these environments of down market days. unfortunately, riding it out tends to be the best option and historically speaking, if you rode out the great recession, if you didn't sell on those terrible down market days, your portfolio is up, in fact, the stock market in the last five years has returned massive amounts to investors, so in a larger context, cecilia, it's looking a lot better over time. >> long term, don't panic, but not easy to do. >> hard to do but that's the answer. having a cushion set aside is important too especially if you're a retiree. you do not want all of your money in the stock market. you want that cushion set aside. >> good to see you this morning, rebecca. thanks a lot. >> great advice, possibly a buying opportunity, rebecca, thank you. we do have weather news including a tornado in florida and meteorologist indra petersons is tracking it all. good morning, indra. >> good morning, dan. doesn't it feel like deja vu from last weekend when we talked about an ef2 tornado right
8:09 am
struck the exact same region. look at these winds ripping. about 100 miles per hour around ft. myers, florida, we're talking about downed trees and here we go again. let's take a look at the map. you'll see another system is out there again this morning. so here we go, we have already some light showers in the region but we're going to watch for that risk of severe weather. so starting around the gulf right around texas, right in through florida today, still looking at that exact same threat. we're looking at just a slight risk out there but nonetheless that's all it takes, again, to see similar damage and even that threat for a tornado out there. as far as rain, that means more rain. 1 to 2 already seen. we're doubling down another 1 to 2 possible which means the threat for flooding. cecilia. >> bad weather is to blame for a rough ride for some miami bound passengers. the turbulence so bad people on board hit their heads. a flight attendant had to be rushed to the hospital. abc's eva pilgrim has the story from laguardia airport here in new york. >> reporter: coming off on a stretcher,

8:11 am
>> you got to get a left before the weather. 12:00 american. >> it was bad. it was bad. >> we through out of our seats and grabbed each other's hands. we were freaking out. >> i was crying. that's how crazy it was. >> reporter: now, passengers on flight 1410 tell us american airlines is giving them a $150 credit. as for if they'll fly again, many don't have a choice saying they have to get back home. dan. >> got to get back on the horse, eva, thank you. we're going to turn now to the powerball mystery. two out of the three winning tickets from wednesday's historic jackpot are unclaimed this morning. we did, however, just meet the winners from tennessee. they showed up to collect their check with their dog in tow. abc's steve osunsami on their sweet and surprising plans for what to do next. >> reporter: good morning to you, dan. so far lottery officials here at the tennessee state headquarters

[ laughter ] >> reporter: this morning john and lisa robinson will have to pinch themselves because it's not a dream. >> i was running down the hallway screaming and crying and i said, you got to check the numbers. >> reporter: numbers her husband says he almost didn't even buy. >> i told her, i said i really don't feel like picking them up but i said i will a stop at the store. >> reporter: he's seen here on a grocery store security camera buying the ticket the day before asking for four tickets and telling the cashier to print them individually. the third ticket was the winner. >> reporter: why separate tickets as opposed to -- >> that's just the way i do it. >> reporter: they came to collect the cash with their dog abby and their daughter tiffany. lisa cried when she explained what she's do to help her children. >> what are you going to do? what's the first thing on the list? >> well, our daughter had some -- >> student loans that they're going to help me pay. >> reporter: they say they're
