up those questions from reporters. >> denise: donald trump hasn't given a news conference in more than two months but he is unleashing more controversial tweets at all hours of the night i might add. ryan nobles live in d.c. with details on this. how about it, ryan. this is bizarre >> reporter: you always wonder why we look so tired we can't sleep during this campaign anymore. donald trump making a lot of news last night while most of us werend former miss universe supporting hillary clinton and went after the media and attacked the newspaper editorial boards who decided they will not support his campaign. >> in a presidential campaign making the unconventional, conventional, even this is out of the ordinary. the g.o.p. nominee for president firing off a series of controversial tweets in the middle of the night. wow, crooked hillary was duped
without checking her past which is terrible. trump tweeted twice more about alicia alleging she appeared in a sex tape for which there is no evidence and also suggesting without evidence clinton helped her become a u.s. citizen. machado who clinton spoke about at monday's debate says trump was critical of her weight gain and called her miss piggy and miss housekeeping and trump supporters believe he deserves a right to respond. >> will counterattack and that's exactly what's happened here. hillary clinton and loot in the media are coming after him and he will respond >> reporter: the tenor, timing and type of response trump chose could play directly into hillary clinton's hands. she responded on twitter asking what kind of man stays up all night to smear a woman with lies and conspiracy theories. >> i mean, his latest twitter
>> reporter: instead of clinton talking about trump's record or foundation the story once again is about trump and his past. a tough position for the republican nominee as polls show the race close and with him still behind >> reporter: he wasn't just talking about alicia machado he went after the dallas news in u.s. "today." a big group of papers that normally endorse republicans for president that either endorsed hillary clinton or gary the libertarian nominee and "usa today" which never courses any candidate for president and is suggesting to readers this time around they vote for anyone other than donald trump and that tweet storm trump suggested this move by the papers will lead to a decreased circulation. chris and denise? >> chris: amazing how social media is a viable battle front in this campaign. one thing, ryan, donald trump
the microphones was about his, wasn't working correctly during the don't. new information tonight. what can you tell us about that? >> yeah. this is one we can score for donald trump. he was mocked a little bit the day after the debate when he complained about the sound coming from his microphone. hillary clinton suggesting if he is complaining about the microphone that's suggesting he had a bad debate but the commission on presidential debates putting o backing donald trump up. it was a one-sentence statement that said yes there was a problem with the audio in donald trump's mike only in the debate hall. that's important to point out. 88 million people watched this debate. all of them heard no problem with trump's mike. if you were in the debate hall you might have heard a problem and that may have thrown trump off his game as a result. no word how it will impact this
there was some substance by the complaint. and the next will be in st. louis a town hall format, different what he is accustomed to >> denise: we knew it would take a few days for the polls to come out post debate what are the latest polls in the battle ground states showing? >> reporter: it is all good news for hillary clinton at this point, denise. you look at florida, perhaps donald trump's biggest challenge and most important state mason-dixon poll showing hillary clinton with a 4 point lead and a state touch hoping for and detroit news poll shows clinton up 42-35%. in new hampshire, a state touch loves, the first state trump won in the primaries hillary clinton leading there 42-35. of course ohio remains an important battle ground, trump is pulling strong in ohio now and really when you look at the
vital for trump. if he can't win florida, there are not too many other paths for victory for trump which is one of the reasons you will probably see him spend ago lot of time there in the next couple of days >> denise: all right, ryan have a good weekend. thank you. stay with cleveland 19 news for continuing coverage of campaign 2016. can you always find updates on cleveland19.com, on our facebook page or twitter. >> chris: time to check in with jeff. it is rainy, on and off >> denise: will it be a washout, buddy? >> jeff: not a washout but risk of showers especially in the afternoon. you have been seeing that trend with daytime heating going. will you see more waves of rain here tonight. although when you look at the latest models, we could be fairly dry early this evening for the friday night games. i do expect around a quarter inch of rain throughout the night. wet roads, muddy fields and the
the rain is beginning to die down in cleveland. it is just a light rain right now. this is where we still have a thunderstorm over north perry in lake county. heavier rain moving through painesville and it is lifting north now and the worst cleared north perry and here is the area with steadier rain in trumbull county, bloomfield, bristol. this is tracking to the northwest. we still have showers o and everybody else is mainly dry getting west and south of cleveland. and once this wave moves through we might get that break before the next wave of rain later this evening. >> and first alert weather app and hourly updates for your neighborhood 7:00, 63 or so. and risk of more rain and thunder throughout the night. we will not move much in temperature right around 60.
