from the moment he got in the race back in june, donald trump has dominated the campaign but for one night, the other candidates took center stage without him. >> before we get to the issues, let's address the elephant not in the room tonight. >> reporter: from the start of last night's debate the republican candidates took on that elephant not in the room. >> donald trump. >> donald trump. >> donald trump. >> donald. >> donald. >> reporter: they mentioned his time seven times in the first ten minutes with ted cruz mocking the donald's absence. >> i'm a maniac and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly and, ben, you're a terrible surgeon. now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way -- [ laughter ] >> reporter: but a debate without trump turned mostly tame, a showdown without the spectacle. the candidates instead dove into policy, the first real fireworks coming over immigration reform. >> because you used to support a
>> so did you. >> but you changed -- >> so did you, marco. >> throughout this campaign you've been willing to say or do anything in order to get votes. now you want to trump trump on immigration. >> the facts are simple. when i ran in texas i told the people of texas if you elect me i will lead the fight against amnesty. >> i feel like a need an english dictionary converter. ted can change his mind. marco can change his mind. >> reporter: hoping to rise in iowa before monday's first in the nation caucus, marco rubio talked tough on foreign policy and also took on the democrats. >> i think bernie sanders is a good candidate for president of sweden. >> reporter: cruz at center stage for the first time failed to take over the spotlight left open by trump's absence. his tangle with the moderators falling flat. >> chris, i would note the last four questions have been, rand, please attack ted, marco, please attack ted, chris, please attack
[ booing ] >> let me say in this --s if. >> it is a debate, sir. >> gosh, if you guys ask one more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> well, don't worry, i'm not leaving the stage no matter what you ask me. >> reporter: trump's presence or nonpresence was felt even after the debate was over, take a look at this photo i shot at almost midnight as i was leaving, these guys dressed as chickens with a milk carton with donald trump's name on it saying, where's donald. >> you took that picture, jon. >> reporter: yes, i did, yes. can't you tell? photography. jon, did the moderators have to be prepared just in case donald trump decided to show up during the debate? >> reporter: well, his event was only five minutes away so there was real uncertainty up until the last minute about whether or not he would come and make a surprise appearance. megyn kelly said that they had two alternative outlines for
gege final word that he was definitely not coming until 15 minutes before the debate >> all right. thank you, jon. conversations over the course of of fox news. he was just a few minutes away, donald trump, hired his own hall, had his own crowd along with mike huckabee a rick santorum. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. as you heard in jonathan's piece, trump wasn't there but he did take some fire on that stage and he said last night he actually considered showing up to the debate and that fox up to the last minute was trying to get him to go there. the show must go on, and thursday night it did. >> i didn't want to be here, i have to be honest. i wanted to be about five minutes away. >> reporter: trump claiming fox news apologized to him, but it wasn't enough to reconsider. >> fox has been extremely nice
[ laughter ] and they've wanted me and they said how about now? they called a few minutes ago. how about now, i said, hasn't it already started. >> reporter: in a statement fox news saying on thursday chairman roger ailes had three brief conversations with donald trump today about possibly appearing at the debate. and that trump offered to appear at the debate upon the condition that fox news contribute $5 million to his charities. we explained that was not possible and we could not engage in a quid pro quo nor could any money change hands for any reason. >> we raised over $5 million in one day. >> reporter: trump still claiming victory. telling his crowd they raised more than $5 million for veterara. >> isn't that bettete than this debate that's going on while everyone is sleeping? they're all sleeping. >> reporter: the gop front-runner even wrangling rick santorum and mike huckabee who debated on the undercard stage to join him. you respect for doing this event?
veterans. you know, his decision as to whether or not to go to the debate is a separate issue. >> reporter: trump's followers, some who braved freezing conditions in iowa to watch his speech on an outdoor monitor say it was the smart play. >> i thought it was a great idea. donald trump has a choice to do that. >> you know, when these people don't play fairly then why go. you know, let's go out and support the best. >> reporter: and trump personally donated $1 million. that's what he said to the event. last night he sent out this tweet. an unbelievable event in iowa with our great veterans. we raised $6 million while the politicians talked. now, trump says 22 vets organizations will get that money, many here in iowa and one of them spoke to abc news. they said they got a call from the trump campaign yesterday who said, quote, it will be better than winning the lottery. george. >> okay, tom, thanks very much. let's talk about this more with matthew dowd, our political analyst and cecilia vega covering the hillary campaign.
what the 30,000 or 40,000 un undecided voters in iowa think but you got to say at first blush it looks like trump's bet paid off. >> i absolutely think it dfrment part of the reason why it did, as him as the brash starting quarterback doesn't show up for the game, the trash talking backup quarterback fumbled the first few steps which is ted cruz and i think donald trump benefited by what happened on that stage. >> it was the second one that fell flat. >> in the course of that debate you had a better picture of ted cruz and i don't think that did well for him. >> who did well. >> i think the interesting thing, others were able to shine and i think rand paul did very well in the course -- >> bush had a pretty good night. >> i think jeb bush had a good night and marco rubio in the first hour had a good night but in the end donald trump didn't show and won. >> hillary clinton came in for a lot of fire last night. >> she had a bunch of attacks. iihink we have one ready to go.
there you go, they say, she says trying not to throw my remote at the tv is what they were talking about. this plays into her narrative. she's even gone to the point where she called berninisanders my friend. she's not talking about him as much on the campaign trail right now going above the fray and looking at republicans and even looking past iowa, i think, into this general -- >> pretty tight race but most polls show she has a slight lead and she's moved into a different phase. what's the plan for the final three days? >> cautiously optimistic, she is bringing in the big guns. we'll see her on the trail for the very first time with bill and chelsea this week looking well past iowa. they know the race is tight and i do think they realize this could be a loss and not bracing for it yet but ready if it happens. >> what's the biggest unknown? >> i think the biggest unknown is turnout. we don't know. everything about bernie sanders' victory is dependent on new voters and so is donald trump's and dependidi if those show up
directions. >> thanks very much. we're going to have full coverage here at abc news this week on sunday morning, "gma" and "world news" both live in iowa and all the results live monday night and next saturday the r rublican debate at 8:00 eastern. robin. >> a lot coming up. we turn to that other big story we've been following, the zika virus, boston reporting its first case of the disease. now more than 30 detected in the u.s. and take a look at this map. you see the outbreak originating in south america and moving north. abc's dr. richard besser is at ground zero this morning in brazil to answer some important questions. good morning, rich. >> good morning, robin. you know, when you walk around the streets ofio you don't get any sense there's something going on here of such big health concern, but when you talk to pregnant women, you get a very different picture. we came to brazil, the center of the zika epidemic.
streets. we met fabiola already expecting when some said not to get pregnant. she tells me through a translator she knows zika is linked to babies with tiny heads and brains so she is spending her paychecks on insect repel apartment. >> the level of alarm is extremely high. the world health organization said it's pulling together an emergency response committee saying the zika virus is, quote, spreading explosively. so far in the u.s., there are more than 30 cases detected in 11 states in the district of columbia. all brought back from travel abroad. >> zika is a relatively inconsequential virus for the general population, but if you're a pregnant woman who gets exposed it's a big deal. >> so, rich, if somebody comes back to the u.s. with that virus, is there potential they could spread it to others? >> that's a big concern, robin, because if someone is infected and comes back to the united
that mosquito can bite other people and be infected so if you come back and have any symptoms, you need to be seen and definitely need to use repellant. >> a lot of concern about pregnant women and wanting to know how long does the virus stay in the system and could it possibly affect future % pregnancies. >> when they look at similar viruses similar to zika they find once a person has recovered and when their symptoms are gone, the virus is no longer in their body so they don't think future pregnancies will be at any risk at all. >> we heard a report there is a pregnant woman here in new york city with the virus. what precautions should she be taking? >> well, you know, thankfully there's no mosquito activity in new york city at this time so she shouldn't be putting other people at risk. but they're going to monitor her developing baby to see if the baby has been affected and once that baby is born they'll do
see if the baby was damaged. we don't know how big the risk is to that baby. >> we hope all goes well for mother and baby. be safe coming back from brazil. for full coverage you can go to goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! >> we move to that deadly shoot-out in oregon. the fbi released new video showing the roadside confrontation between an anti-government protester and law enforcement that left one of the group's leaders dead and abc's neal karlinsky has the latest. >> reporter: you're looking at video of the dramatic traffic stop taken by an fbi surveillance plane. investigators say that white truck is being driven by occupation spokesman lavoy finicum. as police stop the truck and another late tuesday afternoon occupation leaders are taken into custody. except finicum who doesn't surrender, instead after nearly four minutes sitting in his truck flanked by police takes off again. you can see him speeding down the rural road where police have set up a roadblock.
snowbank to miss them nearly hitting an fbi agent. moments later he can be seen getting out with his hands raised then critically reaching at least twice with ace right hand towards a pocket on the left side of his jacket. we won't show the moment police fire, but that's when finicum is shot by oregon state troopers and killed. investigators say a loaded 9 millimeter handgun was found inside the very pocket finicum appears to reach for. >> you know there are various versions of what happened, most of them inaccurate and some of them inflammatory. we want to give the public as much information as possible as to what happened that day. >> reporter: as for the standoff the count is now down to four. just four armed protesters left inside. negotiators are speaking with them and hope to wrap all of this up soon, robin. >> we all hope that. neal, thank you. ethan couch, back on u.s. soil this morning behind bars in texas after he dropped his fight to remain in mexico. he will be back in front of a
abc's matt gutman has the latest on the case. >> reporter: this morning ethan couch is waking up in his nightmare scenario, the tarrant county jail. >> i don't think anyone would be happy to be in the circumstance he's in. >> reporter: a day the sheriff's been waiting for. >> i said all along i will breathe a sigh of relief when both of them are back. >> reporter: the millionaire's son after nearly two months bundled back to texas thursday dropping his legal battle against depore trace to the u.s. and then whisked away in this truck. the sheriff waiting to book him at the jail. what was he like? >> meek and mild. he wasn't defiant. he didn't raise his voice. >> reporter: but the sheriff claims not repentant. >> his only mind-set is how do i get out of trouble and not be held accountable. >> reporter: in 2013 the 16-year-old pleaded guilty to killing four people in a drunk driving wreck. the judge giving him only ten years' probation but police say he and his mother made off to
allegedly showing him at a boozy party. raising questions of violating that probation. couch will be in court today for his detention hearing, a judge deciding whether he'll get bail, remain in this juvenile facility or -- >> he can be ordered to be taken into custody by our office and taken to the adult jail. >> reporter: of course, all of that will be determineddin just a couple of hours. to much media fanfare but one person who will not be here, ethan couch's traveling buddy to mexico, his mother, tanya, still under house arrest, awaiting her trial for allegedly helping him escape to mexico. she faces up to ten years in prison. robin. >> all right, matt, thanks for the latest. amy with the other morning's top stories starting with breaking news about another incident with iran. >> that's right. a new provocation from iran this morning. iran state tv has aired video that it claims is from an iranian drone tracking an american aircraft carrier.
comment but the "uss harry truman" is known to be deployed there. they captured ten u.s. sailors earlier but released then the next day. a massive sinkhole opened up in southern oregon and taken out a huge chunk of a busy highway, highway 101 near the borderrnd from the care you can see a side road completely washed away. it just grew after a storm dumped nearly an inch and a half of rain. well, a giant of the '60s music scene has died. paul kantner co-founded jefferson airplane behind classics like "white rabbit" and "somebody to love." he died of multiple organ failure. he was 74 years old. and finally two suspected burglars have learned a valuablee lesson. they should have measured first. take a look at this picture. it's fairly priceless. there they tried to shove this giant safe into a small vehicle. police arrived within a minute after this guy's alarm went off
find the two trying to squeeze that huge safe into the backseat. didn't work out so well. so now they're safe behind bars. >> a new entry in your dumb criminal file. >> yes, yes, it was never going to fit, guys. >> you've been off that for awhile. >> we just found one, thank you. >> thank you, amy. to rob right now. a little snow coming back to the northeast. >> professional movers could have got that thing into that car. you got to hire the pros to do that. winter weather advisories for parts of the appalachians. this is mostly dry, maybe a couple of snow showers across the northeast and turning blustery this afternoon. watching several storms for the west coast this weekend. it is friday.

you want to make this a black thing? well, i'm not black. i'm o.j. >> cuba gooding jr. starring as o.j. simpson in a new tv series. that one is about to come out and o.j. making a lot of headlines again right now. a famous doctor featured in "concussion" says his time on the football field may be linked to his bad behavior. >> that is dr. bennet omalu. he does not hold back in his feelings. also right now trump as you know a big no-show at the debate last night. and this morning, bill and chelsea clinton set to join hillary in iowa. the three appearing for the first time together on the campaign trail since hillary announced her campaign. new concerns about the mosquito-borne virus, zika. this morning, more than 30 cases now reported in the u.s. and authorities revealing one person diagnosed in new york city is pregnant and rich talked about that. >> a lot of anxiety out there. lara, you got a new warning for car owners you. >> may think it's a good idea cold weather to warm up your car while getting ready leaving the
a lot of us have done it. this morning police say please don't. we will tell you why coming up. >> not a good idea. we begin this half hour, though, with that startling new theory about o.j. simpson from the groundbreaking doctor featured in the movie "concussion" and he is convinced his years on the field field may have given had i'm a brain disease. abc's ryan smith is here with that story. have you our attention, ryan. >> reporter: good morning, robin. a few names in sports more polarizing than o.j. simpson turning him from a football star to a pariah but dr. bennet omalu thinks he has vtsz from thousands of hits on the football field and should serve as a cautionary tale. >> if it doesn't fit you must acquit. >> are you having a problem putting that on your hand? >> reporter: he's the most infamous football player in sports history acquitted of double murder, o.j. simpson's trial for the brutal killings of nicole brown simpson and ron
series "the people versus o.j. simpson." >> you want to make this a black thing? i'm not black. i'm o.j. >> reporter: this morning 21 years after the so far-called trial of the century, an intriguing new claim about the man at the center of it all. >> o.j. simpson is more likely than not suffering from cte. >> reporter: dr. bennet omalu, the doctor responsible for discovering chronic traumatic encephalopathy or cte in nfl players from repeated blows to the head believes simpson is a victim of the disease. >> the truth. >> reporter: portrayed by will smith in the film "concussion" the world renowned forensic path pathologist hasn't examined him personally and can only be diagnosed after death but he can identify the telltale signs of cte behavioral symptoms, he says. >> explosive impulsive behavior, impaired judgment, criminality,
>> reporter: but the strongest evidence o.j. may have cte, he says, his college and 11-year pro playing careers. >> he was exposed to thousands of blows to his head. >> reporter: it's an assertion simpson himself once reportedly made using concussions as part of a legal strategy after his 2008 conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping in las vegas. >> i'm sorry. >> reporter: according to espn during an appeal of his 33-year maximum sentence, simpson's attorney reportedly filed a sworn statement that he suffered numerous blows to the head and/or landed on my head violently while playing football. though he never relied on that concussion defense for his appeal, aew trial was denied. while dr. omalu stresses that cte doesn't excuse the criminal behavior that landed o.j. behind bars, he does want the case to serve as a reminder of the life-altering damage the sport can cause.
to examine a retired player that don't have cte and that in his opinion athletes playing football to the pro level have a 90% to 100% of getting it. all the more reason he says to talk to kids or talk to parents about whether kids should be exposed to all those hits on the field. >> we'll look at the legal ramifications with dan abrams who covered both of the simpson trials very extensively. ryan alluded to this. could this have been anything he used in either of his cases. >> not as a defense, per se, meaning he couldn't have said, look, i've got this and, therefe, i'm not guilty. he might have been
able to argue, you should be able to give me a lesser sentence, because look at what i've been suffering called a mitigating factor in sentencing. but when it comes to guilty or not guilty, saying something like i have a brain disease isn't enough. that's why we talk about the insanity defense because the criminal law is so black and
>> do you think now -- not just pro players talking college players, high school players, that if they get in trouble with the law that they could use this defense? >>
i think we're actually going to see it a lot, particularly when it comes to sentencing. because you're going to see someone convicted of a crime, someone who is going to allege that, you know, they got hit a ton in high schooll or college,e, that's what led them to become more violent, et cetera, and, you know we'll see if judges accept it as a mitigating factor but again really important to distinguish between guilt and innocence where this won't be particularly useful and the sentencing phase where someone could say, i should get a reduced sentence because of what i'm suffering from. >> this is bringing a lot of attention to this, but not sure o.j. is the right spokesperson. >> he is the last person you want as the spokesperson for this, right? i mean, no one wants to sympathize with o.j. simpson, so whether he has it or doesn't have it, it's probably not going to be particularly useful for the cause. >> got it, thanks, dan.
the manhunt for those three inmates who escaped. a woman who teaches at the jail has been arrested in connection with that escape. officials believe she provided them with the information they needed to make their break. abc's kayna whitworth has the details. >> reporter: this morning the woman who police say helped these convicts escape sitting in other own cell. >> reporter: they made a significant arrest. >> reporter: 44-year-old nooshafarin ravaghi arrested in the escape of these three inmates teaching english as a second language. the alleged mastermind behind the jailbreak, hossein nayeri reportedly taking one of her classes at the time. officials now say she allegedly provided them with google maps and other information essential to their escape. steve gomez says the maps may
specific address or provided better understanding of the surrounding buildings and the jail roof. inmates are allowed three hours of outdoor recreation time a week. here at this jail it's done on the roof. >> reporter: ravaghi denies providing anything beyond the maps. according to police, escapees who are still at large may be living out of this white van which was stolen saturday in south los angeles. for "good morning america," kayna whitworth, abc news, los angeles. >> thanks to kayna for that. coming up here, the latest on barbie's new look making headlines this morning. up next on "gma," the mistake you may make that could cost you your car and clayton sandell, you have that coming up? >> good morning, robin. you know, in the u.s. a car is stolen about once every 44 seconds and for about half of

back now with "gma on the lookout" and winter warning for drivers leaving your keys in a running car to warm it up might make you feel more comfortable when you get in it but not if you get outside and the car is gone altogether. seems pretty obvious but cops say it does happen all too often. abc's clayton sandell has the details. he joins us now from highlands ranch, colorado. good morning to you, clayton. >> reporter: and good morning, lara. yeah, it seems innocent. it's a cold morning. you want to start your car up and warm it up but maybe you go into the store to grab a cup of coffee. it only takes a minute but that's exactly what car thieves are looking for. watch these car thieves roll up on an idling car in denverrnd seeing it's empty moments later steal it. this guy scouts a car, parks, approaches and darts to open the door but it's locked. the homeowner sees what's going on and scares the steve away. here in this parking lot a thief casually walks then speeds up to get in a car.
stop him but it's too late. cars left running to warm up on cold mornings, cops call them puffers, bad guys call them a golden opportunity and police departments around the country are warning drivers to not leave their running cars unattended. >> came out, started up the car. less than 60 seconds. >> reporter: that's all it took to steal gregory carroll's car but they got away with the keys to his second car, later that night they came back to steal that one too. >> give me back my car. >> reporter: some people may not realize in many states it's illegal to leave a car idling with the keys inside and depending on your state and county that could even mean in your own driveway but more people seem to be doing it. nearly 45,000 cars stolen in 2014 had the keys inn the ignition. >> we got people leaving the cars running everywhere. >> in lakewood, colorado, we hit the streets with sergeant dave hoover. within minutes his officers spot dozens of puffers idling in 18
>> you know why i'm bothering you. >> no. >> the car is left running un unattended while you're inside the store. you can't do that. >> reporter: this driver hit with a $57 ticket. >> i wanted to sit in a warm car on the way to work. >> reporter: rick boyer's puffer car has just been stolen. >> pulled out. windows are frosty, go back inside and in there maybe four minutes, come outside. car is gone. >> reporter: it cause a crime ripple effect beyond just the owners. >> seen them used in drive-by shootings, burglaries and a series of bank robberies where they were stealing puffers as a way to get to and from the robbery scene. >> reporter: on a cold morning a little shivering is better than a lot of stealing. >> that's when what they made gloves for. >> now, one police chief in colorado tells me iff he could keep people from leaving their puff he cars on the street he could actually cut car theft in his city by 20%. lara.

according to the complaint, mackinnon claims she sold tens of thousands of her inserts to the company from 2011 to 2012 until victoria's secret decided to terminate tear agreement and began making lower quality knockoffs. >> this specific case is a classic david and goliath story where you have an entrepreneur and a large u.s. conglomerate corporation. >> reporter: we're joined by rebecca and we also have "shark tank's" daymond john in orlando on tour for his new book "the power of broke" which by the way just hit "the new york times" best-seller's list. >> well deserved. >> thank you. >> daymond, we want to know what could deborah have done to protect herself. >> she should have had a non nondisclosure agreement when she goes and shops it to all these brands and that procures or saves the fact she's not going to be able to get knocked off because they signed an agreement and should have walked in there

because i'm already making money from all of their pop songs i'm writing so i can afford to experiment with my own stuff. >> i think the experiment paid off. >> nice work. >> number one. and, again, we all -- you have such an iconic look. why so important to shield your face? >> oh, i mean it's just -- it's for fun and for privacy. like i've been working around new york this whole time. i don't need security detail. i don't need anything special. i just walk around. and i can do that and that's a real luxury when you're in my industry. >> yeah, no kidding. >> yeah, so that's why. >> that won't change. this look isn't just a look for this year. you're going to keep it. >> as long as it works. if it stops working then obviously -- >> you need someone to hold your hand. >> can you see. i was like, can i hold your hand. >> i'm sure you have many volunteers. will you please come back to "gma." >> congratulations. >> thanks, again, the name of the album is "this is acting" and it is big. we thanknkou and we thank you guys.
