this morning on "world news this morning on "world news now," political bombshell. just moments into last night's republican debate, the jaw-dropping admission from front-runner donald trump. we're live in cleveland with extended coverage. confusion and frustration as more debrees, possibly from malaysia airlines flight 370, washes up on shore. the difficult news for passengers' families. driving distracted. the disturbing, new study about who may be pressuring teen drivers to text while behind the wheel. the safety alert. and later in "the skinny," saying good-bye to jon stewart on "the daily show." the unforgettable moments from his final broadcast. it's friday, august 7th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now" with t.j. holmes and reena ninan.
2:01 am
oh, they've got to get back out on the campaign trail. the republican presidential candidates, all 17 of them now, after last night's big debate. >> most of the focus was on the man at the top of the polls in the middle of the stage, donald trump, who is getting slammed about his comments about women. abc's dan harris has more. >> reporter: right from the jump, donald trump made waves. >> is there anyone on stage, and can i see hands, who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the republican party and pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person? mr. trump? >> i cannot say i can totally make that pledge if i'm the nominee. i will pledge i will not run as an independent. >> reporter: a few other candidates said a few other things, and then 21 minutes in, it was back to trump for another doozy. >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.
2:02 am
your twitter account -- >> only rosie o'donnell. i think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. >> moments later, rosie herself weighed in on twitter, "try explaining that to your kids." the testiest moment of the night didn't involve trump, but instead, new jersey governor chris christie and kentucky senator rand paul. it was over the nsa's bulk data collection, which christie supports and paul does not. >> i want to collect more records from terrorists but less records from innocent americans. >> when you're sitting in a subcommittee just blowing hot air about this, you can say things like that. >> you fundamentally misunderstand the bill of rights. >> reporter: to be sure there was plenty of hillary clinton bashing -- >> if hillary is the candidate, which i doubt, that would be a dream come true. >> if i'm our nominee, how is hillary clinton going to lecture me about living paycheck to paycheck? >> everywhere in the world that hillary clinton touched is more messed up today than before she
2:03 am
and -- >> we have more questions to come. >> reporter: here in the same arena in cleveland where the republican party will hold its national convention next year. but perhaps the most bizarre riff on hillary came from the donald, who talked about why he contributed to her in the past. >> with hillary clinton, i said be at my wedding, and she came to my wedding. you know why? she had no choice! >> reporter: dan harris, abc news, new york. >> what a night. >> that was -- >> looking forward to that for a long time. >> hillary, by the way, the only thing she tweeted back was about jon stewart leaving, saying she was sorry that he's going. >> so, she didn't engage. but i give fox news credit for building this thing up over weeks and even months. >> yes, they did their homework, didn't they? >> you know what? it was like we were all waiting for march madness, the selection show. who is going to make the cut to be on stage. they built up so much excitement. i give them credit for this excitement. our karen travers is there in cleveland, continues our coverage now. we heard what he had to say on the stage before the debate now.
2:04 am
he was trying to downplay expectations. so, after the debate now, what was trump saying? >> reporter: t.j., some hurt feelings for donald trump. a little surprising afterwards. he was in the spin room saying he felt that fox was too hard on him. in particular, he said megan kelly's questions for him were just tougher than she was on any of the other candidates. of course, donald trump being donald trump, he said everybody's telling me this, that i had the toughest time tonight. but you know, donald trump says he didn't prep for this. he says he's not a debater. he's prepared for anything. one republican tweeting tonight, saying, you know, if donald trump says he can take on china, he should be able to take on three moderators from fox news. >> oh, interesting. a lot of people say you've really got to the prepare to have vision in mind. i want to talk about number two and number three in the polls, jeb bush and scott walker. how did they deliver tonight? >> reporter: they really didn't do much to set themselves apart.
2:05 am
you call it a draw, really. jeb bush second or third in the polls, scott walker the same. they were right next to donald trump. and that's a tough position to be in, reena, because if you're going to get it from donald trump, you're also going to get it from the other side. and i think that was one thing that was interesting last night, the candidates did not seem to want to give donald trump attention, so they turned on the other front-runners that they wanted to bring down, and that meant that they were getting a lot of attention. but just not really a format for both of them to shine not their best night. >> well, karen, thank you so much, reporting live for us from cleveland. thanks for staying up with us, karen. >> reporter: thanks. >> stay with abc news for more reaction to the republican debate. look for more coverage on "america this morning" and in-depth analysis on abcnews.com. turning now to the malaysian airlines passenger jet. confusion and frustration this morning over more debris washing ashore on the same french island where that wing flap was found.
2:06 am
we get the latest from abc's david wright. >> reporter: bits and pieces found on reunion island. could this be the frame of an airplane window? malaysia's transport minister thinks so. >> all these need to be very fine. >> reporter: french investigators would have to determine if it could be a boeing 777 part. >> once you find the first piece, you start finding others. >> reporter: one former ntsb investigator says after a year and a half in an ocean-sized washing machine, debris could turn up in mauritius, mozambique and madagascar, too. >> these parts have had 500 days to move around. pieces move around at different rates depending how much is exposed to winds and whatever. >> reporter: the families crave a straight answer. >> the whole 17 months has been horrible. it's been handled appallingly and continues to be handled appallingly. >> reporter: in beijing, frustrations boiled over outside malaysian airlines' office. the right answers are in
2:07 am
everyone's interest. the french military will deploy a search plane, a helicopter and boats around reunion island, hoping to spot more debris. it is hard to put together a jigsaw puzzle when you have only one piece. david wright, abc news, paris. russian hackers are thought to be behind a cyber attack on the joint chiefs of staff. the hack affected about 2,500 people on the pentagon's joint staff, including war planners and decision-makers. pentagon officials say it was sophisticated yet simple. it was a phishing attack, meaning the hackers dummied up either an e-mail or a login that looked so real that a member of the staff was fooled. taiwan bracing for what's expected to be a direct hit from a powerful typhoon over next day. the storm will bring damaging wind, flooding rain and powerful surf to the island before moving to china. the obama administration is sending federal aid to the already hard-hit island of

saipan. it's a commonwealth declared a disaster area. there's no power or running water there since the storm hit sunday. in northern california, firings are facing a new challenge now that red flag warnings are in effect. governor jerry brown visited crews on the front lines. he warned this is only the beginning for the drought-ravaged state, noting historically that august and september are much worse than july during fire season. we look at the friday forecast, and in addition to the windy weather in northern california, showers and storms hit the rockies in the afternoon. heat warnings posted in dallas, little rock and oklahoma city. showers in the western great lakes. heavy rain in washington, d.c. and richmond. >> 70s in l.a., boston and salt lake city, 80s in chicago, new york and seattle. 90s denver, kansas city and memphis and triple digits in phoenix and dallas. an investigation into the crash of a plane flown by actor harrison ford revealed the engine failed because of a carburetor problem. ford reported engine failure about 1,100 feet, then struck a tree on his way to landing on a california golf course. the ntsb's report on the march
2:09 am
accident found an improperly installed shoulder harness contributed to ford's injuries. the airlines always get harsh criticism about all the fees they charge. in a new report issued on capitol hill, it urges that the transportation department crack down on carriers charging unfair or hidden fees for checked bags, seat assignments and ticket changes. whoo-hoo, says, that's the voice of the passenger. and it accuses the industry of having no justification for bag fees, other than to increase profits. it recommends those bag fees be tied to costs that actually are incurred by the airlines. a lot of people frustrated by that one. >> yeah. let's go to chicago. chicago river? >> yeah. >> known for a lot of things. it serves as a backdrop. runners cross it is several times each october in the marathon there. then of course, it's dyed green for st. patrick's day. >> then there's this. the annual rubber ducky derby, the yellow. more than 57,000 yellow rubber duckies dumped in the river

>> t.j., what was your favorite moment? >> you know what, that was one of my least favorite moments right there. >> really? >> because they got nasty, they got a little personal. >> it did get personal. >> and that's a serious debate people have issues about. it's so funny, those two are like two blocks away from each other on the stage. but the exact opposite thing happened with john kasich, the governor of ohio, home field advantage, if you will. he was asked a question that was kind of meant to put him in a box, if you will, asked about what would you say to your children, how would you explain your position on same-sex marriage, if one of your children were gay. and this is how he came back. >> because somebody doesn't think the way i do doesn't mean that i can't care about them or can't love them. >> we need to remember that in this country. that's how our debates -- they don't take on that tone too often. we disagree, so we have to hate each other. i thought that was just a perfect way to handle that answer. >> it doesn't have to be vicious. even though you don't agree, it didn't have to be vicious. >> he wants to be a different kind of republican, and
3:07 am
that came across tonight. >> i loved his answer. >> okay. >> i have to say for me, it was probably the moment when they asked donald trump, when did you become a republican? >> when did you actually become a republican? >> i hate the concept of abortion. i hate the concept of abortion. and then since then, i've very much evolved. >> he didn't answer the question. >> he dodged that one. >> right. >> and that's sort of the thing. he may be the front-runner right now in the polls, but is he going to have the momentum to where republicans across america would support him right now? >> well, we have to remember, it's still early and celebrity and name recognition is a big part of this right now. >> but he didn't hurt himself tonight, a lot of people would tell you. >> i think so. >> moving on, what is the takeaway going to be? is there going to be a moment that people remember? we had no game-changer tonight, necessarily. >> i think that people will remember that first question that he's not going to support the republican party. it was the gop debate. >> shushannah, abc news deputy political director shushannah walshe. always good. it's been a while. >> it has. >> a new mom, so welcome back! >> thank you.

this morning on "world news now," political bombshell. just moments into last night's republican debate, the jaw-dropping admission from front-runner donald trump. we're live in cleveland with extended coverage. confusion and frustration as more debris, possibly from malaysia airlines flight 370, washes up on shore. the difficult news for passengers' families. driving distracted. the disturbing, new study about who may be pressuring teen drivers to text while behind the wheel. the safety alert. and later in "the skinny," saying good-bye to jon stewart on "the daily show." the unforgettable moments from his final broadcast. it's friday, august 7th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now" with t.j. holmes and reena ninan. oh, they've got to get back
3:31 am
out on the campaign trail, the republican presidential candidates, all 17 of them now, after last night's big debate. >> most of the focus was on the man at the top of the polls in the middle of the stage, donald trump, who is getting slammed for his comments about women. abc's dan harris has more. >> reporter: right from the jump, donald trump made waves. >> is there anyone on stage, and can i see hands, who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the republican party and pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person? mr. trump? >> i cannot say i can totally make that pledge. if i'm the nominee, i will pledge i will not run as an independent. >> reporter: a few other candidates said a few other things, and then 21 minutes in, it was back to trump for another doozy. >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and
3:32 am
disgusting animals. your twitter account -- >> only rosie o'donnell. i think the big oblem this country has is being politically correct. >> moments later, rosie herself weighed in on twitter, "try explaining that to your kids." the testiest moment of the night didn't involve trump, but instead, new jersey governor chris christie and kentucky senator rand paul. it was over the nsa's bulk data collection, which christie supports and paul does not. >> i want to collect more records from terrorists but less records from innocent americans. >> when you're sitting in a subcommittee just blowing hot air about this, you can say things like that. >> you fundamentally misunderstand the bill of rights. >> reporter: to be sure there was plenty of hillary clinton bashing -- >> if hillary is the candidate, which i doubt, that would be a dream come true. >> if i'm our nominee, how is hillary clinton going to lecture me about living paycheck to paycheck? >> everywhere in the world that hillary clinton touched is more messed up today than before she and -- >> we have more questions to come. >> reporter: here in the same
3:33 am
arena in cleveland where the republican party will hold its national convention next year. but perhaps the most bizarre riff on hillary came from the donald, who talked about why he contributed to her in the past. >> with hillary clinton, i said be at my wedding, and she came to my wedding. you know why? she had no choice! >> reporter: dan harris, abc news, new york. >> ooh. >> what a night. >> that was -- >> been looking forward to that for a long time. >> hillary, by the way, the only thing she tweeted back was about jon stewart leaving, saying she was sorry that he's going. >> so, she didn't engage. but i give fox news credit for building this thing up over weeks and even months. >> yes, they did their homework, didn't they? >> you know what? it was like we were all waiting for march madness, the selection show. who is it that's going to make the cut to be on stage. and they just built up so much excitement. so, i give them credit for this excitement. our karen travers is there in cleveland, continues our coverage now. we heard what he had to say on the stage before the debate now.
3:34 am
he was trying to downplay expectations. so, after the debate now, what was trump saying? >> reporter: t.j., some hurt feelings for donald trump. a little surprising afterwards. he was in the spin room saying that he felt that fox was too hard on him. in particular, he said megyn kelly's questions for him were just tougher than she was on any of the other candidates. of course, donald trump being donald trump, he said everybody's telling me this, that i had the toughest time tonight. but you know, donald trump says he didn't prep for this. he says he's not a debater. he's prepared for anything. one republican tweeting tonight, saying, you know, if donald trump says he can take on china, he should be able to take on three moderators from fox news. >> oh, interesting. a lot of people say you've really got to the prepare to have vision in mind. but i want to talk to you about number two and number three in the polls, jeb bush and scott walker. how did they deliver tonight? >> reporter: they really didn't do much to set themselves apart.
3:35 am
you call it a draw, really. jeb bush second or third in the polls, scott walker the same. they were right next to donald trump. and that's a tough position to be in, reena, because if you're going to get it from donald trump, you're also going to get it from the other sides. and i think that was one thing that was interesting last night, the candidates did not seem to want to give donald trump attention, so they turned on the other front-runners that they wanted to bring down, and that meant that they were getting a lot of attention. but you know, just not really a format for both of them to shine. not their best night. >> well, karen, thank you so much, reporting live for us from cleveland. thanks for staying up with us, karen. >> reporter: thanks. >> stay with abc news for more reaction to the republican debate. look for more coverage on "america this morning" and in-depth analysis on abcnews.com. turning now to the malaysian airlines passenger jet. confusion and frustration this morning over more debris washing ashore on the same french island where that wing flap was found. we get the latest from abc's david wright.
3:36 am
>> reporter: bits and pieces found on reunion island. could this be the frame of an airplane window? malaysia's transport minister thinks so. >> all these need to be very fine. >> reporter: french investigators would have to determine if it could be a boeing 777 part. >> once you find the first piece, you start finding others. >> reporter: one former ntsb investigator says after a year and a half in an ocean-sized washing machine, debris could turn up in mauritius, mozambique and madagascar, too. >> these parts have had 500 days to move around. pieces move around at different rates depending how much is exposed to winds and whatever. >> reporter: the families crave a straight answer. >> the whole 17 months has been horrible. it's been handled appallingly and continues to be handled appallingly. >> reporter: in beijing, frustrations boiled over outside malaysian airlines' office. the right answers are in everyone's interest. the french military will deploy
3:37 am
a search plane, a helicopter and boats around reunion island, hoping to spot more debris. it is hard to put together a jigsaw puzzle when you have only one piece. david wright, abc news, paris. russian hackers are thought to be behind a cyber attack on the joint chiefs of staff. the hack affected about 2,500 people on the pentagon's joint staff, including war planners and decision-makers. pentagon officials say it was sophisticated yet simple. it was a phishing attack, meaning the hackers dummied up either an e-mail or a login that looked so real that a member of the staff was fooled. taiwan bracing for what's expected to be a direct hit from a powerful typhoon over next day. the storm will bring damaging wind, flooding rain and powerful surf to the island before moving toward china. the obama administration is sending federal aid to the already hard-hit island of saipan. it's a u.s. commonwealth declared a disaster area. there's no power or running water there since the storm hit

3:39 am
installed shoulder harness contributed to ford's injuries. the airlines always get harsh criticism about all the fees they charge. in a new report issued on capitol hill, it urges that the transportation department crack down on carriers charging unfair or hidden fees for checked bags, seat assignments and ticket changes. whoo-hoo, says, that's the voice of the passenger. and it accuses the industry of having no justification for bag fees, other than to increase profits. it recommends those bag fees be tied to costs that actually are incurred by the airlines. a lot of people frustrated by that one. >> yeah. let's go to chicago. chicago river? >> yeah. >> known for a lot of things. it serves as a backdrop. runners cross it is several times each october in the marathon there. then of course, it's dyed green for st. patrick's day. >> then there's this. the annual rubber ducky derby, what you see there, the yellow, more than 57,000 yellow rubber duckies dumped in the river yesterday to compete in the event. >> all of them were adopted by
