7:15 am
i thank you for listening mother to mother on this new years week. my best to you. apparently, they met at a restaurant not far from our studios. to have been a fly on the wall. >> i guess she was referring to the jewish new year. we're here with kellyanne conway. democrats putting out videos and ads saying that, mike pence missed an opportunity to defend donaldmp >> we totally disagree. i understand why they're desperate to clean up tim kaine's performance. he interrupted 72 times. when he wasn't interrupting the female moderator, he was ignoring her pleading with him to stop and answer the question. we're happy with governor pence's performance. it was spectacular. the fact that he's proudly on the ticket tells you all you need to know about donald trump.
7:16 am

7:17 am
questions as they were asked. mrs. clintden was trying to get out the five or six zingers she had rehearsed for a number of days. this time, i think donald trump in a town hall format, it's one he's very comfortable. you have seen him, because abc has covered some of his town hall formats. he's the one out there at the rallies and smaller settings. every single day. he just had a west coast tour where basically, there were more people outside trying to get i thousands and thousands of people there to hear his message. it's a comfortable format. think donald trump got no credit for being gracious to secretary clinton, asking her should i call you secretary clinton when she was calling him donald. at the end pulling his punches about bill clint and the women and how she treated the women in the 1990s. he got no credit for being gracious and restrained. i thought he made a lot of great

7:40 am
ross harris. the defense is saying, wait, we want the first police report to come in. et cetera. so far, the judge saying, that's for krcross-examination. not going grant it. >> when the officer testified, he said this guy was really hysterical. now he's saying he didn't buy it? >> correct. that's the key question. one of the most important questions. that's the human response, right? everyone plays sort of if this had just happened to my child? how would i have reacted? the defense is saying, he was hysterical. he was crying. the prosecutors are saying, no, he wasn't. e wasn't acting the way a nor mall parent would act. >> is the case going well for the defense so far? >> they've presented a lot of things we didn't know about before. and posed a lot of questions about whether justin ross harris
7:41 am
case for the defense. the facts are hard for them. remember, even in this jury thinks he didn't do it on purpose. they think he was reckless or negligent in the way he was handling it, he could still be con vicked of murder. >> watch it on law >> with a "z." >> with a "z." now to black friday backlash. the mall of america is anountsing it will c bucking the trend of black friday deals starting earlier and earlier every year. rebecca jarvis joins us live. every year, these sales kick off earlier and earlier. right after thanksgiving, the sales start again. so is this a big deal for the mall of america to step in and say, we're not opening on thanksgiving? >> it's a huge deal, michael. the employees, they cheered. and some of them hugged.
7:42 am
mall of america, the biggest mall in the country, would stay closed. you see the pictures there. i mean, every year we get these pictures of thanksgiving rushes, black friday rushes. if anybody wants to be a prt of that, they're in luck. the mall of america will open on black friday. and as somebody who sment spept many of her formative years hanging out at the mall of america, folding sweaters at the mall of america, as a job, i am proud of them. i say bravo on this one. >> >> i think there could be others. all of the retailers the last couple of years that opened up on thanksgiving have traded some of their later holiday sales for the thanksgiving sales. they have to pay employees more. it's a long holiday season. they want their employees to be happy right up until christmas time. so they sell another sweater, a watch, a tv. probably others will follow. this giving them cover. >> when she said they were hugging, we sthoed video, i thought those were the employees.
7:43 am
>> they were hugging on the floor. they're very loving there. >> okay, rebecca, thanks. let's take a deeper look at the big debate sunday night. it will be a different kind. a town hall format. as we said, martha raddatz will be one of the mod rarts. jon karl will be on the scene as well. you sea he talking to kellyanne conway. she says donald trump is great at this format. him. >> i think this could be a good format for donald trump. for a couple of reasons. one, he has done a fair amount of these. i've been with him at town hall meetings in iowa and new hampshire. he feeds off the crowd. the other reason this could be good for trump, it will be hard for him to go personal. all this talk about him going after bill clinton's infidelities. i think that's very hard to do in an intimate setting where the
7:44 am
be -- >> that's good for trump. that would be a terrible decision for him to do, yes. >> what are the keys to success for the candidates in a town hall? >> i got a couple of rules for you. first of all, one thing about this format, you're not tied to the podium. you can wander around the stage. so my first rule is stay in your zone. remember, when george w. bush debated al gore and al gore walked over to him, got into his personal space during one of the questions. take bush basically dismissed him with this look like what are you doing? i think that one look actually helped bush win that debate. >> i think you're right about that. you say stay in your zone. the exception could be approaching a citizen questioner. bill clinton did that in 1992 while the older bush was looking at his watch. that worked for him. >> that gets to my second rule.
7:45 am
audience. empathize. george h.w. bush look at his watch before that question. the key moment was when he got irritated about a question. bill clinton walked over and felt that questioner's pain. he didn't say those words. but that was the feeling. you remember in 2008 when john mccain seemed to be pacing throughout the debate when he wasn't talking. and you know, he was all over the place. one point walking in front of one of the jon stewart had great time with that moment. take a look at this. >> how you folks doing? as anybody seen my dog? has anyone seen my little mr. puddles. just the little guy? fits right in your hand? no? mr. puddles! mr. puddles zblchlt i have snausages. >> wow. >> obama looks so young. >> so the key words, stay in
7:46 am
don't get in front of the other person. >> thank you, jon, rebecca, and dan. coming up. the big comeback off the field. the pitcher hit in the head by the 105-mile-per-hour line drive. he's now speaking out exclusively on "gma." see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that... ...i won't stop until i find what works. a different kind of medicine for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. proven to help the majority of people find clear or almost clear skin. 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance at 3 months. while the majority saw 90% clearance. do not use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting, you should be tested for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur... ...tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms... ...such as fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough.
