7:01 am
>> the emergency workers speaking out this morning. and the battle at bristol. the famous motor speedway transformed into a massive college football stadium ready to host a record crowd. it's tennessee versus virginia tech. we're live at the track for a great gridiron pit stop. and good saturday morning, everyone. we want to thank you for j us this weekend as there is our own rob marciano surrounded by fans at the bristol motor speedway in bristol, tennessee -- they're expecting the largest college football crowd ever and can i say maybe a record in beer consumption. they have purchased over 500,000 -- a half million beers for this game. >> a half million beers. >> a half million beers. >> i'm not sure that should be legal. >> you know, it's tennessee but the raceway will be transformed
7:02 am
tennessee takes on virginia tech. it'll be an epic game in more ways than one. >> we can guarantee rob marciano will consume zero of those. >> he's on the clock. >> much more to come from bristol. starting with the danger and deep inconvenience with hundreds of thousands who own cell phones owned and made by samsung. >> specifically the galaxy note 7. the federal government is saying if you own one of these phones, you should turn it off immediately and trade it in us flames. >> yeah, as you can imagine this is an especially precarious situation if your battery catches fire while you're on a plane as this simulation video from the faa demonstrates quite vivid ly so abc's gloria rivera has more. >> reporter: our own abc aviation expert calling this a worst case devastating scenario if one of these devices were to blow up on an airplane.
7:03 am
devices already out there. they all need to come back in this massive global recall. this morning, technology giant samsung planning a massive recall. this after an unprecedented warning from the federal government urging customers to power down their galaxy note 7s and exchange them now. this is the latest in what has been a nightmare week for the world's largest smartphone manufacturer. earlier this week this jeep >> very surprising to me how quick the dash caught on fire. >> reporter: the cpsc urging anyone who owns one to power them down and stop charging or using the device. that alert going even further than the faa's statement asking any note 7 users to keep their phones completely powered off during flight. lithium ion cells are a massive concern for aviation officials
7:04 am
fire like these tests. >> i don't think there's ever been a product like this. lithium ion batteries power our lives and as the technology keeps going sometimes you get manufacturers who aren't up to speed. >> reporter: samsung confirmed 35 cases so far of its batteries failing leading to your honor about the phones and flames. >> a big employee to samsung. consumers should stop using them if they have these phones. >> reporter: consumers say there is more headache here and inconvenience while devices, customers say that process has been difficult, far from straightforward and makes live difficult for so many who say they just can't get day for the work without their family, dan. >> yeah, massive inconvenience, gloria, thank you. the presidential race and a new comment from hillary clinton overnight getting a lot of attention, maybe not the kind of attention she wants. speaking to wealthy donors at a fund-raising featuring barbra
7:05 am
supporters racists. trump is defending his repeated praise of russian president vladimir putin and abc's devin dwyer is covering it all from d.c. good morning. >> reporter: the rhetoric from both candidates now getting more extreme. donald trump saying overnight hillary clinton can murder someone in broad daylight and get away with it while clinton calling half of trump's supporters deplorables. overnight at a new york fund-raiser hillary clinton lashing out at trump supporters. >> supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. the racist, sexist, homo phonetic, xenophobic, islam phobic, you name it. >> reporter: the trump campaign calling the comment deplorable as he defended his affection for russia's vladimir putin. >> oh, donald trump likes putin. and putin likes trump. honestly i don't know the
7:06 am
he's been nice to me. if the difference between me and my opponent on vladimir putin and in all negotiations is that i negotiate by creating leverage. >> reporter: but scrutiny of trump's embrace of the authoritarian regime is getting more intense after first praising him. >> he is very much of a leader. far more than our president has been a leader. >> reporter: trump defending russia against explosive allegations that h into dnc computers. >> it's probably unlikely. i think maybe -- maybe the democrats are putting that out [ speaking a foreign language ] >> reporter: that interview airing on state run russian tv contradicting top u.s. intelligence officials who say russian involvement in the hack is all but certain. after meeting for nearly two hours with national security experts, hillary clinton appeared flabbergasted. >> every day that goes by, this just becomes more and more of a
7:07 am
show. it's not -- it's not a serious presidential campaign. >> reporter: now the clinton campaign this morning trying to clarify that deplorables comment saying clearly not everyone supporting trump is hateful but a spokesman say they appear to make up half his crowd when you observe the tone of his events. dan and paula. >> devin dwyer, we want to thank you and joining us from austin, texas, abc news political analyst matthew dowd. matthew, good morning to you. thanks for joining us. not long ago said the last thing we need is a president with more name calling but calls half his supporters in a basket of deplorables. do you think this will haunt her. >> when i first heard that it reminded something you'd hear in a "despicable me" movie when gru can't find his minions he calls dr. nefario and says get me the basket of deplorables.
7:08 am
ideas there is a chapter on attacking voters at a fund-raiser. obama did it in 2008 when they cling to their guns, when mitt romney talked about the 47%. it's never a good idea to go after voters even if you believe a segment of voters is that way in this. i think this will be a bad few days for her. it will ultimately pass over. but the campaign, i know, doesn't want their candidate going after voters. >> okay, so let's talk, though, about donald trump's repeated praise of vladimir putin. this is where the clinton focused notwithstanding the basket of deplorables. for the standard-bearer of the party of reagan to be praising a russian autocrat because he's nice to him, how big a deal is that and is it going to matter in the end with swing voters? >> well, dan, amazing situation. we've had so many firsts in this campaign. but actually going on russian television and praising an autocratic dictator of the
7:09 am
you remember jane fonda attacked the united states in northern vietnam and was not heard of for ten years in 15 years of that. i think it's problematic but in the end i don't think donald trump's voters really care. they're probably shrugging their shoulders and say it's great putin likes trump and trump likes putin, move on. i think ultimately this will have to be answered. both these things, the basket of deplorables and this will have to be answered in the first debate. >> you are anything but deplle we love you. >> thank you. that's good. that's a high bar. >> thanks, matt. we want to move to the new concerns about zika here in the u.s. miami beach is spraying for mosquitoes this weekend as the number of pregnant women infected with the virus rises. and the cdc now saying that the money to fight zika is all but gone. abc's eva pilgrim joins us in studio with the latest. eva, good morning. >> good morning. concerns and questions this morning about the safety of an insecticide now being used to
7:10 am
initially those in charge said aerial spraying wouldn't be effective in miami beach because of the wind and tall buildings. but now as more infected mosquitoes are found, the cdc and state recommending it. it's a full-on aerial assault, the battle to wipe out zika in miami beach ramping up but it's what's being used to kill the mosquitoes that could be carrying the virus that this morning has residents upset. >> it could be extremely effective in killing not only the target but the whole ecosystem. >> reporter: residents taking to the streets with signs. >> we don't want no spray. >> reporter: protesting the newest weapon in the fight against zika in miami beach. aerial spraying. this as there are 56 non-travel related cases in florida. 84 pregnant women have been infected with the zika virus and now the city finding a fourth mosquito pool testing positive for infected mosquitoes. >> we are concerned that it has
7:11 am
creating the problems that we're trying to avert. >> reporter: now designed to attack mosquitoes in flight killing them on contact. while u.s. health officials say it's safe naled has been banned in europe since 2012. health officials here in the u.s. say naled is only toxic in high doses pointing out that an ultra low doughs being used in the aerial sprayings but that is not easing the minds of thousands of concerned residents who want to know more about what's being sprayed over them and their about side effects of those chemicals. >> reporter: the spraying comes as the head of the cdc warns that they are essentially out of money in the fight against the virus. this as congress looks to end the gridlock over a zika funding bill that may get another vote next week. for now the aerial sprayings continue. the next scheduled to happen early tomorrow morning. >> i can see why people are worried about that. eva, thank you. to a big twist this morning
