4:01 am
it is a cringeworthy scene there. we'll get to that. >> just thinking about it gives me chills. >> yeah, that story off of mexico. but here in the states it's good friday morning. it's a rough one in the political scene. we get started with both donald and melania trump fighting back this morning following a string of sexual assault allegations and taking direct aim at the accusers. >> donald trump is dismissing claims that he groped and kissed women without consent calling them outright lies and he claims he has evidence to refute them. >> trump's wife melania tweeted a letter from her lawyer demanding a partial retraction from "people" magazine. mrs. trump is specifically denying she had an encounter with an accuser after the alleged assault but did not dispute the claims about her husband. abc's angelica spanos is here with the latest. angelica, what are we learning? good morning. >> reporter: well, kendis and diane, donald trump continues to say that the deck is stacked against him in this election. he's denying every single word spoken from his accusers, and now he's pointing the finger at the media, the clintons and says his campaign will show
4:02 am
substantial evidence that the allegations are all false. preposterous and ludicrous, the words donald trump used to defend himself against allegations of inappropriately touching women. >> these people are horrible people. they're horrible, horrible liars. >> reporter: one of those accusers, jessica leeds, who first told "the new york times" trump groped her on an airplane back in the '80s recalled more details of the encounter to cnn. >> did he actually kiss you? >> yeah, yeah. >> on the face or on the lips? >> all -- wherever he could find a landing spot, yes. >> these false attacks are absolutely hurtful. to be lied about, to be slandered, to be smeared so publicly and before your family that you love is very painful. >> reporter: his campaign now planning an all-out assault on bill clinton and his past misconduct. >> they will lie, lie, lie. the clintons are criminals. >> but on the trail hillary
4:03 am
clinton is unfazed. she brought out one of her most powerful weapons, michelle obama. >> i can't believe that i'm saying that a candidate for president of the united states has bragged about sexually assaulting women. it has shaken me to my core in a way that i couldn't have predicted. >> reporter: clinton let the first lady take aim at trump while she sat down with talk show host ellen degeneres. >> i don't want anybody to think this election is over. we've got to work really hard for the next 3 1/2 weeks because who knows. >> reporter: clinton saying she felt like she was being stalked on the debate stage. >> he was really all wrought up. and you could just sense how much anger he had, and so he was really trying to dominate and then literally stalk me around the stage. >> reporter: and right now the clinton campaign is also still dealing with fallout from the wikileaks releases. the newest internal e-mails show clinton's advisers
4:04 am
persuading her to apologize for using a private e-mail server. kendis, diane, back to you. >> yeah, and the clinton campaign has yet to verify whether those latest e-mails are real. angelica, thank you. as trump's accusers continue to speak out, ivanka hit the campaign trail for him. ivanka made a rare solo campaign swing through pennsylvania taking part in two events attended mostly by women. she refused, though, to address the sexual assault allegations against her father, just talking about politics in general and calling it bizarre and vicious. >> i felt like that i had, you know, sort of cut my teeth in new york real estate and, you know, could take some punches, but this is a rough sport, politics. >> ivanka talked about her father's child care plan and she depicted him as a mentor saying she wanted to emulate him as a parent. in other news now there is a lot of cleaning up to do on the island of bermuda in the aftermath of hurricane nicole. one guy stood outside in the storm as nicole's
4:05 am
115-mile-an-hour winds roared across the island. you saw him there in the middle of the screen. the powerful storm knocked out to power to just about everyone and so far it's been restored to very few. what's left of nicole is spinning further into the atlantic. >> the northwest is now in the midst of a series of severe storms. high surf, strong winds and heavy rain are hitting the region, forecasters say some wind gusts could reach hurricane strength. some coastal areas could also see more than a foot of rain and this is just the beginning. storms are lining up in the pacific. a second storm rolls through tomorrow afternoon. it could bring widespread damage with wind gusts of over 80 miles per pour, flash flooding and possible mudslides. and we have some new drone video from north carolina showing the flooding emergency there is nowhere near over. that's the tar river still well out of its banks. north carolina's governor says parts of one town are still under up to 12 feet of water. all of it left behind by hurricane matthew, and the death toll continues to rise.

4:07 am
pittsburgh, the president announced $300 million in grants and also played with some new gadgets including using a simulator to dock a spacecraft at the international space station. now this isn't the first time that the president has shown how much he loves technology. >> i confessed, i am a science geek. i'm a nerd, and i don't make any apologies for it. [ applause ] i don't make any apologies for it. it's cool stuff. >> the president also took a picture with a little science fan. >> ah. >> 10-month-old rowan wright in a nasa shirt. >> that rowan will be going to mars for us someday. still ahead, another airline is dealing with computer issues causing delays overnight all across the country. and something new on board. how other airlines are now taking extra steps to prevent a disaster from overheating smartphones. plus, not in his courtroom. a judge rips off his robe when a defendant gets aggressive.
