good morning, america. new overnight, donald trump fighting back. tossing the teleprompter and lashing out as more women accuse him of sexual misconduct. >> he then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me. >> trump says none of it is true. >> i am a victim. plus, the latest on hillary clinton's e-mail saga. the questions she was forced to answer. extreme weather. several rare tornadoes tearing through coastal oregon. >> whoa. >> blowing up transformers. over 100 homes damaged. >> it's just like a bomb went off. >> now, seattle is in the bull's-eye bracing for a once in a decade storm. flight plan. the department of transportation taking action, no samsung galaxy note 7s allowed on planes.
8:01 am
now considered forbidden hazardous material for fears they could explode. the stiff fines you will face if you do not cooperate. and dramatic rescue. >> you gotta come out. >> bystanders plunging into a pond to save a woman who's trapped in her sinking car. the race against time as the car is submerged. >> there she is. >> helping her swim to shore. one of the heroes speaking out this morning. good saturday morning. i want to thank you for joining us. we want to get right to our top story, donald trump firing back at his accusers criticizing the women alleging sexual misconduct for their looks as well as their motives. >> there is overnight from charlotte, north carolina, surrounded by female supporters who took the stage to defend their candidate. >> but trump as we know is quite capable and comfortable with defending himself. he's now blaming a conspiracy which involves the clinton campaign, the media, as well as foreign executives for this
8:02 am
growing scandal. >> the scandal is most certainly growing. as we come on the air this morning, two more women have come forward to allege that trump made unwanted sexual advances. we're going to kick things off with abc's mary bruce who is in our washington bureau. mary, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. well, donald trump this morning says he is the victim here. he's denouncing his accusers, blasting the media for reporting the allegations and saying this may poison the minds of the american voter. >> i actually like my speech better without teleprompters. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump is off prompter. >> it doesn't work. that means the company doing the teleprompter is in the back. that means they didn't do a good job, so i won't pay them. >> reporter: and in full attack mode. >> it's a total setup. >> reporter: trump stepping up his denial of sexual misconduct allegations. >> i am a victim of one of the great political smear campaigns in the history of our country. >> reporter: he's questioning
8:03 am
his accusers' motives. >> for personal fame, who knows, maybe for financial reasons, political purposes. >> reporter: and going after their looks. >> you take a look, look at her, believe me, she would not be my first choice, that i can tell you. man. >> reporter: this as two more women come forward, kristin anderson tells "the washington post" in the '90s she was sitting on a couch at a trendy new york nightclub when -- >> the person on my right, who unbeknownst to me at that time was donald trump pus their hand up my skirt. >> reporter: she says trump did to her what he bragged about on that 2005 tape. >> grab them by the [ bleep ]. you can do anything. >> that explains it. that's explain what happened to me. >> reporter: but trump said it never happened. calling the allegations totally ridiculous. >> one came out recently where i was sitting alone in some club. i really don't sit alone that much. i was sitting alone by myself
8:04 am
like this. and then i went, wah. >> reporter: also accusing trump, summer zervos, a former contestant on "apprentice." >> he then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast. >> reporter: this a statement trump said, "i vaguely remember ms. zervos. to be clear i never met her at a show told or greeted her inappropriately a decade ago." late last night the trump campaign issued a statement from john barry who they say is zervos' cousin. in the statement johnbarry says ever since she was on "the apprentice" she said nothing but glowing things about mr. trump. abc did not reach mr. barry to confirm his statements. >> trump's running mate mike pence went on tv saying the campaign would present evidence within hours to disprove these mounting claims. have we seen anything? >> reporter: well, this morning we are still waiting for that evidence.
8:05 am
mike pence says there will be proof coming out to refute these women's claims and back up trump's denial. so stay tuned. paula. >> all right, mary, thank you. also overnight, hillary clinton weighed in on what she calls trump's mistreatment of women. all of this as her campaign is facing a fresh batch of hacked e-mails dropped by wikileaks and abc's devin dwyer joins us from our washington bureau with more. good morning, devin. >> reporter: good morning, paula. hillary clinton said overnight she gets no satisfaction from the controversy surrounding donald trump, but as she prepares now for the third debate, her team says she won't shy away from those accusations of sexual assault. this morning, hillary clinton taking donald trump to task over those sordid headlines prompted by as many women accusers. >> the whole world has heard how donald trump brags about mistreating women and the disturbing stories keep coming. if we do our job in 25 days,
8:06 am
donald trump will stop being on the news every single day. >> reporter: at a seattle fund-raiser clinton lashing out at trump and his new strategy of scorched earth attacks. clinton getting some help from her top surrogate, president obama. on the road in ohio friday, he unleashed on trump. >> and he figures that if he makes our politics, just toxic then maybe you'll just figure out you got no good choices and you just get discouraged and you just don't vote. >> reporter: the president laying out the stakes in stark terms. >> equality is on the ballot. kindness is on the ballot. democracy itself is on the ballot right thought. >> reporter: meanwhile, clinton answering new questions under oath about her private e-mail server. her team submitting written answers in a lawsuit filed by the conservative group judicial watch. asked about details of her decision to use private e-mail, clinton answered 20 different
8:07 am
times with a variation of do not recall. >> the thing that you should be apologizing for are the 33,000 e-mails that you deleted. >> all right, devin, i want to ask you, wikileaks has claimed they have 50,000 e-mails from the clinton campaign. so far they've released roughly 11,000 so when will they be releasing more and what can we expect? >> reporter: paula, wikileaks says they plan to release thousands of pages of these e-mails every day up till the election. now, keep in mind these are e-mails from clinton campaign manager john podesta's hacked account. so far no bombshell in here, but they do reveal some insensitive language towards catholics and latinos. some reveal the calculated, highly calculated inner workings of the campaign. the clinton team is not confirming the authenticity but claim russia is behind them to help donald trump. paula and dan. >> 24 more days of this, devin, thank you. and for analysis we want to bring in abc news political contributor kristen soltis anderson who joins us from washington this morning.
8:08 am
good morning, kristen. >> good morning. >> so first and foremost trump is saying this is all a conspiracy, a coordinated effort between the media, the clinton campaign, as well as foreign governments. but is that even possible? >> donald trump is certainly choosing to call out a number of different groups that voters really don't trust, whether it's the media, whether it's foreign corporations or governments and whether it's the clinton campaign, it's easy for donald trump to kind of pit himself against these things that people don't like. whether it's coordination, i think it's much more likely that this is what in campaign world we know as an oppo dump, off opposition research, where one campaign digs up dirt on the opponent and then feeds it strategically to different media outlets so on wednesday night when these allegations really began to come out in full, you saw media outlets across the country print and online and tv, you saw folks in local markets that are key to this election all running with the story, it's not necessarily a conspiracy, but it certainly is well coordinated by the clinton campaign. >> in a normal world where
8:09 am
donald trump's alleged sexual misconduct wasn't dominating the news, these wikileaks e-mail dumps from hillary clinton's campaign chief would be the top story. so, i'm just -- as a pollster in the current environment, are these leaks even making a dent in your mind? >> the reason these wouldn't make a dent is because already they're confirming what many voters believe about hillary clinton. we've seen in polls for the last over a year that people don't necessarily trust her, that they think that she holds different positions behind closed doors. the things in here that might be the most damaging are the sort of insulting comments about catholics, about latinos, things like that, groups that the clinton campaign would like to hang on to in this election but for the most part when it comes to behind-the-scenes e-mails versus allegations of sexual misconduct, one certainly is going to get more attention than the other so i suspect this is unlikely to make a big headline unless we see something that really changes people's perception of hillary clinton. >> and, kristen, as a pollster we know that those "access hollywood" tapes were really
8:10 am
damaging, but any sense of the consequences so far of these sexual assault allegations on trump? >> before all of this came out donald trump tended to be at about 42% in most polling averages. if he was going up or down, against hillary clinton it was mostly because hillary clinton's numbers were moving. we've now in the last couple of days seen at least two major national polls come out with donald trump only at 38% of the vote meaning it's not just that he's losing these independents or swing voters but he's also bleeding from his own core base of supporters. that's going to make it much hard story put together the 270 electoral votes to become president. >> excellent insight. thanks for joining us. 24 more days until the election but four more until the final presidential debate and that's wednesday night. abc's chief anchor george stephanopoulos will be leading our live coverage starting at 9:00 eastern. >> that's twice you mentioned 24 days. somebody may be ready for this thing to be over. we're going to move on now, though, to the other developing story this morning.
8:11 am
the once in a decade storm pounding the pacific northwest spawning at least two tornadoes in oregon damaging more than 100 homes, and it could get even worse today. rob is all over the story this morning. rob, good morning to you. >> good morning. surreal video watching that waterspout come onshore in oregon, ef-2. with winds to potentially 130 miles an hour. only four times since 1950 has the state of oregon seen a tornado greater than an ef-1. and this is the damage it did. the mayor of manzanita declaring a state of emergency and several homes and businesses completely destroyed and as you mentioned over 1 00 homes seeing some sort of damage. also over 100,000 people at one point without power as seattle got hit with this thing as well plowing into british columbia and the intermountain west and storm number two, an old typhoon, but it's going to regenerate and starting to strengthen now and the track of this is key is to how strong the winds get but pretty confident that the coast will at least see 80 mile plus winds and then from portland to seattle we could very well see damaging winds in excess of 50
8:12 am
or 60 miles an hour and another 12 inches on top of the rainfall, the record rainfall that they saw during the day yesterday. a number of watches and warnings out including a hurricane-force wind warning, the east coast still reeling from hurricane matthew a week ago and some spots, the hardest spot in north carolina with the inland flooding the waters are still rising there today. phillip mena is live for us in kinston, north carolina. good morning, phillip. >> reporter: rob, good morning. hard to believe but parts of this area were actually dry yesterday. all of this floodwater from matthew rushing in from all directions and it's quickly turning the heart of this town into an island. this morning, part of north carolina preparing for the worst. new floodwaters now forcing kinston residents to evacuate homes and businesses one week after matthew hit. several waterways now converging on the neuse river rising to record levels in a matter of hours. in nearby princeville over 80% of the town now also submerged.
8:13 am
>> down here. >> all the way down there. >> uh-huh. >> reporter: kim kilpatrick can only watch helplessly as her home of 18 years is nearly swallowed by the river, now 20 feet higher than normal. >> i guess i'm trying to numb myself. i don't have any more tears. >> reporter: the rising waters fueled in part by the over 18 inches of rain dumped by matthew. the storm's death toll now rising to 45 in the u.s. 24 in north carolina. residents hoping they don't lose everything. >> i'm praying that we will be able to come back home because this is our family home. this is where my father and mother raised their children. >> reporter: this is one of the poorest areas of the country. the mayor here telling me that it took them a decade to recover from hurricane floyd and, unfortunately, paula, the flooding this time is even worse. >> that resident saying she had no more tears. such a heartbreaking story,
8:14 am

8:15 am
smoking samsung galaxy note 7 on a baltimore bound southwest flight last week. this is the latest headline in what is the largest recall in cell phone history and some flyers are feeling uneasy. >> my first time on a plane, i'm panicking freaking out. >> reporter: meanwhile, federal authorities enforcing an emergency order banning samsung galaxy note 7s on board aircraft and passengers caught with the phone, they'll be denied boarding. >> this is a small price to pay for safety. we cannot have these phones bursting into flames on flights. >> reporter: the department of transportation issuing a stern statement saying passengers who attempt to evade the ban by packing their phone in checked luggage are increasing the risk of a catastrophic incident. the question is, how difficult will enforcing the new ban be? >> this is a safety factor and really we don't have any choice. >> reporter: those failing to cooperate with the new rules could be criminally prosecuted and face fines of nearly $180,000. now, a lot of those airlines already had those bright red
8:16 am
