7:02 am
trump, of course, firing back. >> that's right. >> absolutely. >> take a look at this. hillary clinton's campaign having a little fun during the debate. there they are tweeting out an image of three republican candidates arguing and a shot of clinton looking, well, slightly less than impressed. >> we are going to hear from senator rubio in just a moment but first let's get right to abc's tom llamas in detroit for more on last night's big debate. good morning, tom. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. you know, the debate went to a very weird place last night and donald trump forced to confront a pattern of flip-flops that was shown in a video at the debate. overnight, the republican debate starting with a low blow. >> he referred to my hands, if they're small, something he must be small. i guarantee you there's no problem. i guarantee you. >> reporter: the wild night even had a moment of zen. >> that is not what you said. >> i know it's hard not to interrupt but try. breathe, breathe. >> lying ted. >> when they're done with the
7:03 am
yoga can i answer the question. >> you cannot. i really hope that we don't see yoga on this stage. >> he's very flexible so you never know. >> reporter: when it was serious, trump's rivals focusing on his record as a businessman. >> he can start tonight by announcing all the donald trump clothing will no longer be made in china and mexico but here in the united states. >> this little guy has lied so much. >> here we go. >> they devalue their currencies and they make it impossible for clothing makers in this country to do clothing in this country. >> reporter: trump and co-moderator megyn kelly remaining civil after their epic battle in the first debate. >> mr. trump, hi. >> hello. >> how are you doing. >> nice to be with you, megyn. >> great to have you here. >> you're looking well. you're looking well. >> as are you. >> reporter: but later kelly putting trump university in the spotlight. the business now the subject of lawsuits over claims they defrauded students out of thousands of dollars promising to teach the secrets of real estate. >> the rating from the better business bureau was a "d" minus.
7:04 am
that's the last publicly available rating in 2010 and it was a result of the number of complaints. >> reporter: and trump forced to defend a montage of his flip-flops throughout the campaign. >> you change your tune on so many things and that has some people saying, what is his core? >> megyn, i have a very strong core. i have a very strong core. but i've never seen a successful person who wasn't flexible. >> reporter: the debate coming just hours after former republican presidential nominee mitt romney took on trump in a blistering speech. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. but you say, wait, wait, wait, isn't he a huge business success? doesn't he know what he's talking about? no, he isn't. and, no, he doesn't. >> reporter: trump responding to romney right at the top of the debate. >> he was a failed candidate. >> reporter: i asked trump if he was worried about the establishment working against him? the establishment is trying to wraesle this nomination away from you. what are you doing to make
7:05 am
schauer that doesn't happen. >> look, we have a lot of delegates and will have a lot more after this weekend. this i've run the country into hell. >> reporter: and that moment about trump's hands, melania trump telling me senator rubio is desperate in his attacks on her husband. >> well, it's just desperation. he's desperate and he's nowhere in the polls so that's why he's going in that low attack. >> reporter: now, senator rubio made the argument at the debate that so far two-thirds of voters have voted for somebody other than trump, that a majority of the republican voters don't want trump yet. that said and all that talk about a contested convention, all four nominees yesterday said they would support -- all four candidates said they would support the eventual nominee. >> tom, thanks. republican presidential candidate marco rubio joins us now. senator rubio, thanks for being here this morning. >> good morning. >> senator, i wanted to ask you first about the tenor of this campaign. parents watching, kids watching
7:06 am
too. you and donald trump have traded personal insults in recent days and trump responding to your comments about the size of his hands and without going any further, this is a morning show, you have young children. do you regret where this has gone. >> look, i regret the way the campaign has become, absolutely, because donald trump for the last year has made it one of the most vulgartacles in american history offending everyone running for president, ju journalists, the disabled -- >> but do you regret -- >> look, sometimes when someone is as offensive as he is repeatedly he needs to get a taste of his own medicine. nothing i have ever said comes anything close to what donald trump says regularly on a daily and routine basis. >> let me turn to some of the issues you brought up. you went after him raising concerns about trump university among other things. you said he's making promises he has no intention of keeping. he's trying to con people into
7:07 am
giving them their vote. he's trying to con the american voter. >> absolutely and he's done this in his business career. what he's done throughout his business career, look, i'm this successful businessman, i know how to get this done and i can do it for you. sign up with my brand. well, that's what he's doing except instead of money he's looking for votes. it's already clear last night he changed his position on immigration and at least on one key aspect of immigration. he has no answers on health care. we saw that last week. he had no serious response to foreign policy other than to attack me personally by name-calling. there is not a single issue he has ever given a thoughtful, serious answer on and he's asking to become the president of the united states. >> senator, you know -- >> i think that's evidence of someone -- >> you know there's been a lot of talk about this republican revolt from members of the republican establish many. mitt romney now leading the charge. romney saying if republicans choose trump as our nominee the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished. a safe future diminished.
7:08 am
do you agree with that. >> first, i would say it's not the republican establishment alone. there are plenty of constitutional conservative, people that believe strongly in the conservative principles who understand he is not a conservative and that could end the end of the modern conservative move many as we know it. the world is a dangerous place and some of the rhetoric that donald trump has and some of the policies to the extent he's even outlined a little bit are reckless and dangerous. >> but if you think he's going to make america less safe, you think he's conning the american voter, you did say last night that you would support donald trump if he's the nominee, how do you square the two? >> yeah, i mean that's the quandary we find ourselves in. that's what i'm trying to avoid. if it comes down to that which i don't believe it will then our choice is between hillary clinton which is just awful, you know, e-mail investigation that has her own fbi investigation, i think disqualified from being commander in chief because of benghazi and donald trump who is just disgust. i wish people would have a
7:09 am
better choice. >> you're aware of the primary in your home state donald trump leading. is it a must win for you. >> we're going to win florida and, you know, polling, i don't believe -- i know that poll is not accurate. i know for a fact. that said, you know, we were down 20 points in virginia and almost basically beat him, would have had there been less people on the ballot. very strong -- it'll be a tough and close race. listen, no, i've never categorized any state as must win but we'll win florida and i'm very confident of that. >> all right, senator rubio, we can hear your voice hoarse this morning. we hope you feel better. >> thank you. >> all right, david, thank you. for more on the republican debate and the impact of mitt romney's speech we bring in abc's matthew dowd, what a night, what a week, what a year it's been. how about last night, anything to change the momentum from donald trump. >> one would have thought the behavior as we went from a stage that had the size of a nascar race to a football team to a baseball team to a basketball team and now to a golf foursome
7:10 am
we certainly didn't have golf etiquette on the stage last night. i don't think it changes anything really because fundamentally many people are going -- are turned off by it so won't change their vote. it keeps doing this, it prevents donald trump, his behavior and not having really the answers he needs to have prevents him from expanding his lead he's able to coalesce the party which is why the party is in the state they're in. >> some things are not just personal. they are issue based, say trump university. anything like that stick? >> i don't think in the course of last night. people were sort of lost in the conversation last night. i think the only way that sticks is if the issue is framed in person, not by elected officials but by people impacted so if they have that, then they can stick to it. if it's elected officials it won't work. >> you have thoughts about mitt romney's speech yesterday. >> i think the problem with mitt romney's speech is that he's a flawed messenger. good guy, flawed messenger. if you took the dictionary and looked up establishment mitt romney's picture was there and that benefits donald trump.
7:11 am
>> all right, always, matt, thank you. thanks. now to a big headline this morning about north korea and reports that kim jong-un has ordered nuclear weapons to be made ready for use. the white house now responding this morning. so, let's get right to our white house correspondent jon karl live this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it's an alarming threat and comes just a day after the u.n. security council imposed the toughest sanctions yet against north korea. overnight on north korean television, a smiling tv anchor made a provocative announcement saying that north korea's dear leader, kim jong-un, has given the go-ahead for the use of the country's nuclear weapons. the u.s. state department tells abc news they are closely monitoring the situation, urging north korea to, quote, refrain from provocative actions and rhetoric that aggravate tensions. this comes after north korea claimed on state media to have successfully tested a hydrogen bomb in january and after
7:12 am
february tests of missile technology aimed at reaching the united states. that led the security council to impose tough, new sanctions on north korea. but overnight, north korean state tv praised kim jong-un for the quick development of the new long-range rocket system which they claim has the precision and capacity to hit key targets. u.s. and south korean officials have already met today to discuss the possibility of deploying an advance missile defense system there on the korean peninsula, but, robin, that is a move that china strongly opposes. >> all right, jon, thank you. now a health scare in wisconsin. the cdc warning residents abouten aoutbreak of something called elizabeth ckingia. abc's chief medical editor is here. you used to work at the cdc. what is going on? >> i talked to the cdc and until
7:13 am
you sort out what's going on and solve the outbreak, it's worry sing. elizabethkingia, a newly recognized species of bacteria that can cause bloodstream infections, meningitis. this is the first outbreak they've seen. typically there are five to ten cases per state per year, so it's very worrisome what's happening here. they're not sure why in the elder di and -- >> what is the symptoms. >> what you can see, shortness of breath, fever and neck pain. cdc has sent a team up there. this is what public health does. the cdc has sent five disease detectives up there and have a team in atlanta that's working looking for any clues that connect them. medical records and testing of water supplies, they will interview the patients to see what is going on here that may have caused this outbreak. in the meantime, doctors will be on the alert so that patients will be treated with the right antibiotics. >> the cdc is on it full force. >> yeah, this one we got to pay attention to. >> all right, rich, thank you. >> thanks, robin and rich. now to dangerous weather
7:14 am
making its way up the east coast this morning. eight states on alert. snowy messy commute and indra petersons, good morning. >> good morning, david. it may be march but it is clearly still winter here in richmond, virginia. this morning temperatures feel like they are in the 20s, we have fresh snow on the ground, and behind me is i-95. this could not be coming at a worse time, the morning commute. we've been watching cars slipping and sliding all over the highway this morning. and this is a story all up and down the eastern seaboard. let's take a look at some pictures outside of d.c. and delaware they've already seen 5 inches of novell this morning and that know is still falling. now, even out towards d.c. itself you're seeing actual snow on your car. what does that mean? it means you're scraping ice before you head into work this good morning even out towards jersey flurries falling. look at the map. we are talking about a massive system moving up the mid-atlantic, we're talking about eight states here affected. that means millions of people affected this morning commute.
7:15 am
david, it's an ugly mess. >> all right, indra, thanks. robin, you came prepared. you're warm this morning. it is freezing out in new york. a reminder winter is not over yet. >> not yet. >> over to amy. the other top developing stories and the new turn in flint, michigan. >> good morning, guys. the mother who claims her house is ground zero in the flint water crisis is now taking her fight to court. leann waters testified about the crisis last month. now she is suing city and sit officials claiming they are responsible are to the lead in the water that caused brain injuries and other health problems suffered by her children. meanwhile, a $200 million federal aid package for flint is now stalled in the senate. well, an autopsy shows a man fatally shot by police in raleigh, north carolina, this week was hit by four bullets. in a new statement thursday police say akhil den kins pulled a gun from his waistband and was reaching toward the officer's gun when he was shot. a witness claims denkins was shot in the back. in southern california a man is in custody accused of deliberately dashing into the
7:16 am
federal building there in orange county. a pedestrian who worked in the building was hit. no word on his condition, but the "l.a. times" reports he may have had a grudge against the government. in washington state police say a driver likely fell asleep at the wheel before crashing into this gas pump igniting a fire. it took him almost a minute to realize what was going on. he then ran away. finally, the video that is making us all feel a lot better on this friday, bruce springsteen called a special fan onto the stage to dance with him at his concert in minnesota earlier this week. you're looking at jean heint teechlt, 91 years old attended more than 100 springsteen concerts with her daughter. she was holding up a sign that read all i want to do is dance with the boss and she certainly got her wish, indeed. >> she's the boss. >> wonderful. that is great. >> happy friday. happy friday.
7:17 am
>> we have new developments in the deflategate scandal. lawyers for tom brady meeting in court as the nfl tries to reinstate brady's four-game suspension. both sides facing tough questions and we have the latest. >> reporter: this morning, tom brady's playing status on the line. >> touchdown. >> reporter: the deflategate case in the hands of three appellate court judges. the judges grilling both sides during the hour-long hearing quizzing nfl lawyers about goodell's use of power calling the commissioner, judge juror and the enforcer but the most pointed questions seemingly saved for brady's side. judge denny chin saying the evidence of ball tampering is compelling if not overwhelming and zeroing in on brady's destruction of his cell phone during the case. players association lawyer jeffrey kessler claiming for the first time privacy and stalking issues were among the reasons for brady's actions. brady repeatedly denying any involvement in the alleged scheme. >> i didn't alter the ball in
7:18 am
any way. >> reporter: each side leaving feeling good about the hearing. >> the second circuit was very well prepared for this case and heard the arguments from both sides. >> we're very happy with the proceedings. >> reporter: and goodell telling our robin robs last month it's not just about brady but enforcing their rights. >> this is an issue of what are our rights in the collective bargaining agreement. we followed them to a tee and we believe that the district court got that wrong. >> reporter: but now another waiting game. the judges aren't expected to issue a ruling for several months. some fantasy football experts are saying you should draft brady's backup. judges asked tough questions but there is a chance we could see a decision by the beginning of the season. >> millions. rob marciano is in -- you're in vail, colorado. >> what? >> that winter storm hitting the northeast. beautiful, rob. >> good morning, robin. yeah, welcome to vail, colorado, the finest snowboarders are be

7:32 am
david. after seven days of testimony, later today, a jury will begin to weigh the evidence to decide who is at fault and how much each side is to blame for a naked video of erin andrews a stalker posted online. this morning a jury will get the chance to decide who is to blame for a naked video of erin andrews that went viral on the internet. jesse palmer, espn analyst and now a "good morning america" contributor in's deposition testifying about andrews' demeanor after the incident. he was her espn colleague at the time saying, andrews was quiet and more reserved after the video came out. >> i remember thinking with amazement really at the performance she was giving. >> reporter: suing her stalker michael barrett as well as the owners and managers of that marriott for $75 million claiming the hotel made it easy for barrett to shoot the nude video. >> this could have been stopped. the nashville marriott could
7:33 am
have just called me. >> reporter: michael barrett says he was having money problems when he came up with a plan, record video of andrews naked in her hotel room on his cell phone through a peephole and sell it for money. >> waited until the shower was turned off. pulled the plug out and waited for the opportunity. >> reporter: barrett pled guilty to stalking in 2010 and was sentenced to 30 months in prison. the hotel claims barrett was a criminal who tricked them into gaining access. attorneys for the marriott hotel arguing that the nude recordings have not had a negative impact on her career. >> you also got an endorsement for reebok. >> yes. >> reporter: andrews maintaining this incident has caused lasting emotional scars. >> i instantly cover the peephole. and then i do a check of the room. i look everywhere. >> reporter: the video which is still online today has been seen nearly 17 million times. at court her family by her side, her father saying almost eight years later his daughter still
7:34 am
isn't the same. >> she's not the girl that we used to know. >> reporter: the jury will likely get this case sometime after lunch today. david. >> all right, eva, thanks so much. great reporting on this every step of the way. we've got abc's chief legal analyst dan abrams with us with more. take us into the jury room. we heard that grueling cross-examination ask erin andrews did this really hurt your career. what do these jurors have to decide. >> the first question is liability. meaning who is responsible for this and are they responsible? there's no question that barrett is responsible. he's admitted that he did this, that he altered the peephole. he's going to be found responsible then the question is should the hotel and the management group be found responsible meaning were they negligent? assuming the answer to all of those questions is, yes, then it's damages. how much should this be worth to erin andrews. >> we've heard the figure 75 million. obviously the stalker doesn't have $75 million.
7:35 am
>> if the jury comes back with a huge award, a lot of it is going to be against him and then probably some of it might be against the hotel and the management group. but the management group is where the money is, right? so, the question is going to be can andrews' team get them to pay all of barrett's damages? tennessee law has kind of restricted that ability for a plaintiff like erin andrews. the key is going to be can they show in effect that they were in this together? did they work in concert, not an easy argument for erin andrews' team so if in the end, they can't get the hotel management group and owners to pay for barrett's damages that could reduce the amount that she ultimately gets. >> has to convince them they were in it together. the challenge for the defense would be? >> the challenge is throughout for the defense. they've had to be so careful because, you know, there's no question that she was a victim here. so, this has been a tough case for the defense particularly on
7:36 am
cross-examination as you point out. >> thanks. now to the scare in the air. investigators are looking into a report that a drone narrowly missed a passenger plane in paris coming within about 15 feet of the aircraft's wing. abc's david kerley has the latest. this is quite disturbing, david, good morning. >> reporter: it is, good morning, robin. they are calling it the authorities, a grave incident. this was an airbus a320 and can carry 150 people on final approach to charles de gaulle airport when the co-pilot sees at 5,000 feet 15 feet below his wing and takes evasive action. once they get clear of the drone they put the autopilot back on and landed safely. this report just out from french authorities from this incident a month ago, very concerning, robin and david, for these kind of drones to get so close to aircraft. >> what about back in the u.s.? what is the danger of the drones with the u.s. planes?
7:37 am
>> reporter: well, these kind of reports are alarming for u.s. officials. every week there are about a dozen sightings by pilots of drones in their airspace and the worry is what happens the day one of these drones hits an aircraft, hits the engine, what happens to that aircraft and everybody on board, robin. >> we don't want to find that out. david, thank you. coming up u.s. soccer legend brandi chastain with a big announcement. what's she's doing for science to protect young athletes from brain injury. a big health headline about aspirin and how it could help reduce your risk of cancer. what doctors are saying this morning. important headline coming up.
