it is a cringeworthy scene there. we'll get to that. >> just thinking about it gives me chills. >> yeah, that story off of mexico. but here in the states it's good friday morning. it's a rough one in the political scene. we get started with both donald and melania trump fighting back this morning following a string of sexual assault allegations and taking direct aim at the accusers. >> donald trump is dismissing claims that he groped and kissed women without consent calling them outright lies and he claims he has evidence to refute them. >> tweeted a letter from her lawyer demanding a partial retraction from "people" magazine. mrs. trump is specifically denying she had an encounter with an accuser after the alleged assault but did not dispute the claims about her husband. abc's angelica spanos is here with the latest. angelica, what are we learning? good morning. >> reporter: well, kendis and diane, donald trump continues to say that the deck is stacked against him in this election. he's denying every single word spoken from his accusers, and now he's pointing the finger at

4:03 am
clinton is unfazed. she brought out one of her most powerful weapons, michelle obama. >> i can't believe that i'm saying that a candidate for president of the united states has bragged about sexually assaulting women. it has shaken me to my core in a way that i couldn't have predicted. >> reporter: clinton let the first lady take aim at trump while she sat down with talk show host ellen degeneres. >> i don't want anybody to think this election is over. for the next 3 1/2 weeks because who knows. >> reporter: clinton saying she felt like she was being stalked on the debate stage. >> he was really all wrought up. and you could just sense how much anger he had, and so he was really trying to dominate and then literally stalk me around the stage. >> reporter: and right now the clinton campaign is also still dealing with fallout from the wikileaks releases. the newest internal e-mails
