our senior analyst is here with us with his expert insight on this tuesday, january 5th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." good morning, everybody. it's not monday anymore. it's tuesday. >> it is tuesday. >> i'm kayna whitworth. >> i'm kendis gibson. aren't you happy to be here on a "bachelor" post morning? >> i am so excited about that in particular. >> absolutely. >> yes. >> ben, our senior analyst is fired up about it. jack, is that just because there were twins involved? >> it's even better than the real thing. no doubt. >> we can't wait to get his expert analysis. >> what's in store for you. >> he's been watching it over and over in slow mo. >> i think he came in just for this. >> he had other stuff to do. be tuned in for it. let's get started though with a familiar face who is back on the stump. of course, we're talking about bill clinton making his first
solo appearances on behalf of his wife's presidential campaign. >> but the former president comes with his own baggage, too. abc's cecilia vega is covering the campaign. >> reporter: bill clinton kicking off 2016 in new hampshire. >> it's kind of scary this year. >> reporter: taking some not so4 subtle jabs at a certain republican front-runner. >> when there is discrimination against african-americans or hispanics or muslims, just because of who they are, i don't like that. >> reporter: but he didn't mention donald trump by name, or trump's tactic of dredging up the former president's past sex scandals. >> and the husband's one of the great abusers of the world? give me a break. >> reporter: so i asked about trump. donald trump says your past is fair game. i've got to ask you, you keep coming up on the trail with him, is it fair game? a long pause, and then an answer. >> the republicans have to decide who they want to nominate. i'm trying to tell -- now, the
democrats, and the country, why i think hillary would be the best president. and i think there's always attempts to take the election away from the people. >> reporter: trump not backing down. >> i think that, you know, hillary was an enabler and a lot of things happened that were, you know, obviously very seedy, i mean, he was impeached, for heaven's sake. >> reporter: but 15 years after leaving office, bill clinton's popularity numbers are sky high, much higher than his wife's. she calls bill her secret weapon, especially in new hampshire, where both clintons have enjoyed political comebacks. >> i listened to you, and in the process, i found my own voice. >> reporter: this year, new hampshire is pivotal once again. the only state where clinton trails vermont senator bernie sanders and where she needs that not so secret secret weapon more than ever. and the former president's event here in new hampshire was a packed house. and that is exactly what hillary
clinton's campaign wants to see an aide to the former president telling me that we can expect to see a lot more of bill clinton 8 on the road this campaign trail the next few weeks. donald trump's first tv campaign ad is stirring up some controversy. i want to show you an image. you can see people here scrambling like ants across a mountainous border. it is seen as the announcer is talking about building a wall along the mexican border. the deal is, that video was shot in morocco 5,000 miles away. the trump campaign is standing by it though. they're saying it illustrates the very real they're the that americans face. >> also this morning, ben carson is revealing a new story from hischildhood. carson says he tried to commit suicide in third grade because of trouble at school. he was looking for rat poison and that his older brother told him that drinking a lot of water would make him burst so he tried that instead. but after spending all his time in the bathroom, he gave up on the idea which is what his
brother had in mind. >> yea, 26 days till the caucuses in iowa. today president obama announces new restrictions on gun sales. his executive orders will extend the requirement for background checks to flea markets and internet sales. he acknowledges the new rules won't prevent every mass shooting. he's expected to speak about the changes later this morning, a speech that we will cover live here on abc. a police chase on one of southern california's busiest freeways ended up with the suspect dead. and ended with a crash right here on interstate 5 where the man had been driving the wrong direction. he fled on foot but was shot by police and later died. the man was wanted for murder and other violent crimes. and part of that major freeway through los angeles was closed for hours. >> and about 60 miles to the east, the victims of the san bernardino terror attack remembered at a memorial service. it was held a few hours after the office complex where the 14 people were killed by a
co-worker and his wife reopened for the first time since the massacre. there was tight security as employees reported to work. isis has a new english-speaking spokesman for its videos. in a new video, the new jihadi john, taunts the u.s. calling the british prime minister, as well quoting here an imbecile and participates in several executions. authorities think they may know who he is and so does abc news. here's brian ross. >> reporter: this is the new isis version of evil personified. his face hidden by a black mask, speaking with a british accent. >> we will continue to wage jihad, break borders and one day invade your land. >> reporter: u.s. and british officials are comparing the voice and physical characteristics to this well-known british radical, siddhartha dhar, who fled london to syria a year and a half ago after being arrested on charges of supporting terrorism. shortly before that, he talked with abc news.
>> the last hour will never come until a group of muslims rise and conquer the white house. >> reporter: dhar was interviewed by correspondent lama hasan in 2014 as he urged young muslim men in london to push for sharia law. >> i think that would be the beginning of the end of the united states of america, of britain, of europe and the entire world. >> reporter: authorities say he is now a leading suspect as the new isis executioner, which if it is the case, will put him on the same list that led to the drone strike against the previous jihadi john who oversaw the execution of four american hostages. brian ross, abc news, new york. >> the ntsb's release of those haunting images of the "el faro" are raising more questions than answers. the cargo ship went down in the bahamas during hurricane joaquin last october killing all 33 people on board. but as the images indicate, the twisted wreckage there, there is still no sign of the ship's crew or the ship's black box. after a month-long wait, a family in houston, texas, is
