empire state building as part of the annual macy's fireworks show. ♪ >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. >> welcome to "cbs this morning." normally we'd be talking about the fireworks because they were very beautiful, but we have to start today, guys, with talking about nick cordero. hour heart goes out to the family. you felt like i did when we got the news over the weekend. it was so -- it was very tough. very tough to hear because we were all pulling for him. even though i didn't know nick cordero, i felt we got to know him through his wife amanda. we just talked to her a week ago. she was so enthusiastic. it was so infectious pulling for him. when we got the news it was very difficult. >> so full of hope. i was left with hope from that interview, and now, as
lin-manuel miranda wrote on twitter, my whole heart is with her and the family right now. it's a shocking development. >> he was only 41, guys. that's what gets me. and after i heard the news, i went to youtube and listened to that song he wrote "live your life." it's devastating. >> i did, too. they have a little baby elvis who just turned 1 in june. we'll have more on this story later on in the newscast. we are thinking of you, amanda, and your family this morning. we begin with this. the frustration and fear from local officials across the country after a packed fourth of july weekend and surging cases of coronavirus and surging is the word. some americans observed social distancing, many others did not. including at beaches and waterparks. at this popular party spot in michigan, nobody in this crowd seemed to be wearing a mask. >> i don't see many. >> in florida, there are long lines at testing sites. the state topped 11,000 cases in a single day friday with more big numbers over the weekend.
the surge coming after governor ron desantis repeatedly downplayed the threat. our lead national correspondent david begnaud is in miami beach. how is the governor responding now? >> best we can tell, he's not responding. it's been a holiday weekend but he hasn't made any public statements. the governor in the past has been combative suggesting the media gets some kind of joy. those were his words. when the numbers spike. but that is not the case, as you obviously know from the media. this morning as we stand in front of this line, some have been here since 4:30 this morning. we were on miami beach over the weekend. it was very quiet. the local officials decided to close down the beaches. the governor wasn't closing anything down so the locals said we will do it. here's how things look around the rest of the country. >> you guys are amazing out there? >> reporter: july 4th celebrations looked pretty normal in certain parts of the country. despite the increased spread of the coronavirus and calls for
social distancing. people partied on the minnetonka lake in minnesota and packed on to beaches across san diego. >> humans aren't supposed to be locked in forever. it's a weekend to celebrate. here we are. >> reporter: beaches were closed as the state doubled its infection in just two weeks. florida now has 200,000 confirmed cases and more than 3700 deaths. another state seeing a spike in cases is arizona. the mayor of phoenix says the state opened way too early. >> we were one of the last states to go to stay-at-home and one of the first to re-emerge. we re-elermerged at 0 to 60. >> reporter: now hospital bed use in arizona is at an all-time high. austin mayor steve adler says theree may not be enough medica personnel to keep up with the spike in cases. >> our trajectory is rising geometrically and it's scary right now how quickly we're going to overwhelm our
hospitals. >> be careful. >> reporter: 88-year-old marie smith tested positive for the coronavirus while visiting her daughter andrea in arlington, texas. >> ms. smith, you beat the odds. >> yeah, i did. i did. it's a blessing. >> reporter: mrs. smith spent nearly two weeks in the hospital but she is now recovering. >> i'm glad to be home with my children. >> reporter: seven people in the family tested positive, including her son louis. >> no one wound up in the icu. we're fortunate and blessed that we have really good access to health care. >> she is doing exceptionally well. and we count it all as a blessing and a testimony that what -- of what happens when a family circles around another family member and prays together. >> reporter: andrea got tested in texas. her brother louis got tested in new york city and their stories were so different and they found it so interesting.
louis got his test results back almost right away. and the city of new york called him to say, hey, we have a place for you to stay if you need. we have food, mental health counseling. and they called him almost every day to check on him. andrea says it took eight days for her to get her results back, and they never called to offer her anything or really to check up on her. two different stories, vlad in two different states. >> troubling indeed. what makes it harder in florida, it's hard to contact trace some of those partygoers because florida doesn't make public information about clusters. david, thank you very much. president trump is being widely criticized for suggesting that 99% of coronavirus cases are totally harmless. that claim is not true. the mayor of austin, texas, where cases are surging called the remark dangerous. paula reid reports from the white house. >> now we have tested almost 40 million people. by so doing, we show cases.
99% of which are totally harmless. >> president trump made that unsubstantiated claim on july 4th. but even his own fda commissioner, dr. steven hahn struggled to support it. >> is the president wrong? >> so i'm not going to get into who is right and who is wrong. what i'm going to say is what i said before is that it's a serious problem that we have. >> reporter: houston's mayor sylvester turner is battling a record spike in infections. he refuted the president's statement. >> the number of people who are getting sick and going to the hospitals as exponentially increased. the number of people in our icu beds has increased. >> reporter: the mayor of miami-dade insisted the president was wrong. >> if it were harmless, i wouldn't be taking the steps we're taking in miami-dade. >> reporter: the president contradicted his health experts for a timeline on the vaccine. >> and we'll likely have a therapeutic and/or vaccine solution long before the end of
the year. >> i can't predict when a vaccine will be available. >> reporter: former trump homeland security adviser thomas bossert issued this warning. >> we have to start at the basics and level with people suggesting it's not dangerous is in itself a dangerous message. >> reporter: the trump campaign has announced an outdoor rally this saturday at the airport in portsmouth, new hampshire, but a recent campaign rally resulted in dozens of secret service agents and campaign staffers having to quarantine after several tested positive. in portsmouth, attend'sees wille provided with masks and encouraged to wear them. gayle? >> thank you, paula. we can't stress that enough. wear the mask. we're joined by former cdc director tom frieden. he's the president and ceo of resolve to save lives which works to prevent epidemics. good morning to you, dr. frieden. i want to start with president trump's remarks that 99% of the
cases are harmless. that's hard to take today especially following the death of nick cordero who is 41, walked into the emergency room. they were thinking it was pneumonia. he did not make it out. what did you think when you heard that? >> thanks for asking. thanks for covering this. part of the challenge here is that we have lost the nuance. some people are saying this is a hoax. it's fake. it's not serious. other people may be saying it's the worst thing in the world. it's a zombie apocalypse. it's neither. this is a terrible pandemic. it has killed 130,000 americans. it has sickened many, many more. and we don't yet know what the long-term complications of some of that illness is. but it is true that 99% of people who get it will survive. we need a more nuanced approach. right now the virus has the upper hand throughout much of america. most of america. we can regain the upper hand if we work together. if we work together, we can get our kids back to school in the
fall. we can restart our economy. and we can prevent deaths. but we'll only do that by coming together to stop the virus. it's not going to stop on its own. we have to stop it. and we do that through the three ws. wear a mask, wash your hands. watch your distance. and by strategic testing. this focus on the number of tests is totally misguided. what we need to be asking -- >> yeah, that's what i want to get into. that's what i want to get into. >> -- and the right things being done. yes, gayle. >> the testing. the president is blaming the surge on the increase in testing. does he have a point? >> although it's true we're testing more, we're finding a whole lot more. and so it is absolutely clear this is a real increase. you don't have to tell the doctors in the emergency rooms who are dealing with tons of patients right now throughout the south and southeast, southwest of the u.s. that this is real.
it's real. now the fact is, we're also seeing this more in younger adults. the 20 to 40-year-olds. it was a mistake to open bars early. and we're paying for that mistake. but there are things everyone can do to quiet this down. if you are a young adult you don't want the death of severe illness of an older adult. anyone within six feet of each other need to wear a mask. there's a lot of things we can do and no one perfect answer. it's a comprehensive all of society response. you know, gayle, we are an outlier. countries all over the world in africa and asia and europe are controlling the virus. it's not easy but we're not. we can. >> but there's another interesting development. it's being reported that scientists are asking the world health organization to update the virus, updatoe us on how th virus is spread.
is there new information on that about how the virus is spread? >> we're still not sure of some of the details. and that's one of the reasons we need to do the detailed investigations of every case. a great epidemic response learns constantly. what the debate is among scientists is how common is what's call aerosol transmission? and that means that fine particles stay in the air for an hour or two. we know it happens some. it happens in health care facilities when you do certain procedures. it happens when choirs sing. it spews particles out there that can infect a lot of people. it also is true that there is spread from contaminated surfaces. but from all of those things, wearing a mask can make a really big difference. that's why everyone needs to wear a mask when they're within six feet of other people. >> all right. i just wish people would listen to the scientists. you're right. most people recover from this covid-19, but if you are one of the rare people that don't
recover, that's little consolation when you see the figures. thank you, dr. thomas frieden. we appreciate your time. vlad? >> the fourth of july weekend was marred by deadly gun violence. children were caught in the crossfire. in chicago, 77 people were shot and at least 13 died over the weekend. 7-year-old natalia wallace was playing with other kids when she was killed by gunfire. in atlanta, 24 people were shot on saturday night. at least 5 of them died including secoriea turner. someone in a group of people opened fire. it made atlanta's mayor furious. >> so we're fighting the enemy within when we are shooting each other up on our streets in this city. and you've shot and killed a baby. and it wasn't one shooter. there were at least two shooters. an 8-year-old baby.
if you want people to take us seriously, and you want -- you don't want us to lose this movement, then we can't lose each other. >> new york city and philadelphia also reported dozens of shooting s and at leat 14 deaths. turning to politics -- president trump used divisive language over the fourth of july weekend to link americans who are demonstrating peacefully with extremists and vandals. >> angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. we are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the marxists, the anarchists, the agita agitateors, the looters and people who in many instances have absolutely no clue what they are doing. >> speaking at mt. rushmore on
friday, the president claimed a new, quote, far left fascism is threatening american values. the next day at the white house, he said no to taking down controversial statues saying, quote, our past is not a burden to cast away. the tone echoed his inaugural address focusing on what he called then american carnage. chief washington correspondent major garrett joins us. these were largely scripted remarks by the president which means they were a choice. why did he take this tone? >> well, tony, let's talk a little bit about american carnage in the inauguration address and this fourth of july. a lot of people have drawn a straight line. i don't think there is a straight line. in one sense those are unifying moments and you expect uplifting rhetoric, not american carnage or liberal fascism. yet there are very distinct and different in the arc of donald trump. the inaugural address, american carnage was him addressing what he regarded as, in washington, a
bipartisan ka ball of elitists who let america go to waste, particularly in the industrial heartland. he came there as the anti-establishment force to topple all of that. here, with his july 4th rhetoric, he's essentially becoming the establishment figure protecting everything that america's ever known about itself without one wisp of curiosity about things unknown. and when i talk about things unknown, let's talk about things the trump campaign has recently learned. greenwood in tulsa, for example. what does it mean when you say when the looting starts, the shooting starts. all those things the trump campaign apparently didn't know about yet have hess nanresonanc american history. the president is establishing himself as the arbiter of american establishment protecting all the history as known with no curiosity about unknown or how we might progress. that's a substantial and important distinction. >> we should remind our viewers,

welcome back to "cbs this morning." the tributes, they are pouring in this morning for nick cordero. the broadway star who lost a three-month battle with the coronavirus. he died over the weekend. he was just 41 when he died yesterday at a los angeles hospital. his wife, amanda kloots, wrote on instagram this -- "he was surrounded in love by his family, singing and praying as he gently left this earth." on twitter, "hamilton" creator lin-manuel miranda called the news devastating. cordero's former broadway co-star, zac braff, wrote, "i can honestly tell you i have never met a kinder human being." ♪ i don't keep running
nick cordero was known for his soulful baritone. ♪ and versatile vocals. ♪ the 41-year-old made his broadway debut back in 2012 and later went on to originate the role of mob boss sonny in a stage production of "a bronx tale." in 2014, he was nominated for a tony award for playing the menacing gangster cheech in "bullets over broadway." ♪ if i could slack my lover and leave her for another ♪ he and his wife amanda kloots first met as cast mates and later had a son elvis. >> nick's body is extremely weak. muscles have atrophied -- >> reporter: i spoke to amanda last monday about her husband's condition. what have you been told about the effects of the body of a
long intubation? >> gosh, it's hard. i mean, the longer you're in the icu, the longer you're on a ventilator, your body's more susceptible to infection. and that is what we're seeing with nick. he is in and out of infections in his lungs, in his blood. >> reporter: the 41-year-old broadway actor was placed in a medically induced coma three months ago. >> we really need nick to wake up and start healing. >> as the public rallied around him and his recovery. cordero woke up from that coma but suffered setback after setback. in april, doctors amputated his right leg due to coronavirus complications. to fully recover, kloots told us he'd need an even more significant surgery. >> our ultimate, ultimate goal would be to get him to be a candidate for a double lung transplant. >> reporter: nick ultimately lost his battle with the coronavirus after 95 long days in the hospital. i was wondering if you've ever gone there, have doctors told
you, amanda, it's time to let him go? have they said that to you? >> i believe, gayle, that god is the only person that's going to decide when and if my husband goes. so i -- i will never try to play that role. >> to his fans, his friends, and his family, he will always be a bright light that can never be put out. it's so hard, guys, looking at that interview just one week ago. we sat down and talked with her. she told us at that time she had been told four different times that this was it, to get ready. she said he kept rallying and rallying. she said as long as he was fighting, she was going to fight, too. i can't say enough how much i admire her and how much i care about her. her enthusiasm was so infectious. she gave us such faith and hope. it's hard to believe that this battle is over. it's really, really tough to take that in. >> you know, when i see the video of him singing and dancing, so full of life, that
is what is so hard to watch. the one thing i'm heartened by is that little elvis will know how much his father was loved. the people who sang his music, former cast mates, the #wakeupnick, he will know that as he grows older. >> yes, you know what else, yes, little elvis will also know because she's got video of how much his father loved him, too. elvis turned one june 10th. think about that for a second. nick was 6'5", the picture of health. when i asked in the first interview how do you think he got it, she doesn't know. she said they had spent every moment together. the only time they were separated is when they took two different flights from coast to coast. that's the only thing they could think of that he must have gotten it on an airplane. nobody really knows. to hear that, you know, this is a harmless disease is just not true. it can strike you -- he was the picture of health. the picture of health. no underlying conditions. so you just never know how it
can affect you. you just don't. >> you are absolutely right. that's a takeaway from me, as well. it's a beautiful remembrance. thank you very much. still ahead, the case against ghislaine maxwell who's atuesdayed of conspiring with jeffrey epstein. we'll tell you how the charges could spell legal troubles for others who were in epstein's orbit. plus, a reminder -- you can always get the morning's news by subscribing to the "cbs this morning" podcast. less than 20 minutes.tories in we'll be right back. this is ava. these are ava's shoulders. they square off. and bear it all. but now ava's shoulders are stronger than ever. this is what medicare from blue cross blue shield does for ava. and with plans that fit your life and budget, you can count on us when it matters most. this is medicare from blue cross blue shield. this is the benefit of blue.

as well as the people that are above her. now the question for all of us is who is above her? >> reporter: a department of justice says that prince andrew has repeatedly declined to speak to federal authorities in the united states. cbs news has reached out to the prince's team for comment, and they say they are, quote, bewildered because they've reached out to the doj twice, and they say as of last week they haven't heard back. gayle? >> well, many people want to hear what ghislaine maxwell has to say. we'll see if she talks. thank you very much, mola. ahead, vlad will look at the stories we t

fireworks, folks. here are a few stories we think you'll be talking about today. first on "cbs this morning," a black mother says a white hotel employee called the police on her and her kids for using the pool. shy recorded part of the alleged incident on facebook live. >> she said to me, had oh, because it's always people like you using the pool unauthorized. who's people like me? >> anita wright says an employee at the hampton inn in williamsston, north carolina, asked her to prove she was staying there. she says she offered her room key but not the room number because she was unsure of the woman's authority. she also says two white people nearby were not confronted. all that was before wright says she started recording. when police arrived, they checked her license plate and confirmed she was a guest at the hotel. wright told us the incident had a profound effect on her kids. >> when my son and daughter are traumatized, you can hear them saying don't go to the car. then i asked my son later, why did you say that? he said, because when you went
to the car, i didn't want -- when you got in the car, i didn't want the police to take you. >> the hotel says it has a zero tolerance for racism and is changing its practice and will only call police if there's, quote, illegal activity or a threat. the employee has resigned and now longer works at the hotel. the police department has begun an internal investigation. the town's mayor claims the children were unattended and wright refused to give her name. she said, quote, after watching the video at least ten times, i fail to see any disrespect, misconduct on the part of the police officers. benjamin crump says he and wright plan to meet with hotel management. i keep thinking about the children. wright says her kids are traumatized. >> me, too. you know why, it's embarrassing and it's humiliating. it happens in front of everybody. reminds me of the song that
everybody's singing, "my people don't deserve no trouble. god protect me." stories like that. death of nick cordero. not a great way to start a monday. here we are. you also have a story -- we've lost another great name in the music movie world. we may not know the name -- >> indeed, italian composer ennio morricone. his name may not sound familiar, but you know his music. ♪ >> everybody is looking at their tv and going, oh, yes! he was best known for the 1966 western "the good, the bad, and the ugly." he wrote for more than 500 movies and tv shows over five decades. he died early this morning at the age of 91 after breaking his leg in a fall. it wasn't just the westerns.
he was known for "the untouchables," great film, tarantino, yes, indeed. >> his score for the 86 "the mission" was noted as best of all time. and fun fact, spaghetti western, what the critics called those old eastwood films and others like them -- >> didn't like it -- >> didn't like it. they were called spaghetti westerns because so many italians -- get it, spaghetti -- were making them. he did not appreciate it. what else you got? >> all right. >> i see why he didn't like that. >> yeah. it wasn't a good look. all right. i've got a wonderful story to end today, guys. a pregnant woman in texas beat the coronavirus and then gave birth to healthy triplets weeks later. here's maggie salero holding her three little newborns. the new mom learned she was infected during a routine checkup when she was 28 weeks pregnant. fortunately, she was strong enough to overcome the illness. isabella, nathaniel, and adriel
were born two minutes apart on june 4th. >> that's beautiful. yeah, if there's any saving grace to the virus is kids do not seem to be as harshly affected as older adults and pregnant women in particular, seem to be able to make it. this is a great example of that. >> indeed. >> yeah. all right, miami-dade broke a record for the number of new coronavirus cases in a single day. ahead, we're going to be talking to miami's mayor, some questions for him about the restrictions already in place. and what more may be coming if the virus isn't pulled into tremfya® helps adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis uncover clearer skin that can last. in fact, tremfya® was proven superior to humira® in providing significantly clearer skin. tremfya® may increase your risk of infections and lower your ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms or if you had a vaccine or plan to. serious allergic reactions may occur. tremfya®. uncover clearer skin that can last.

it's monday.iday july 6th, 2020. welcome to show thoe. i'm gayle king with tony dokoupil. anthony mason is off today. holiday hot spots. after many i peered to ignore social distancing over the weekend. >> sharing the grief. the partners of rashad brooks and george floyd talk to us. how the world'serer taj sites are reopening. >> first, here's today's eye
opener at 8:00. frustration and fears after a packed 4th of july weekend and surging cases of coronavirus. >> florida topped 11,000 cases in a single day with more big numbers over the weekend. local officials decided to shut down the beaches. the governor said he wasn't closing anything down. the locals said we will. >> right now the virus has the upper hand throughout much of america. most of america. we could regain the upper hand if we work together. >> president trump used divisive language over the 4th of july weekend to link americans demonstrating peacefully with extremists and vandals. >> he is establishing himself as the arbiter of american establishment, protecting all the history as known. >> all eyes on joey chestnut. the nation looks to its hero. >> the annual hot dog eating contest went on without any spectators and joey chestnut won
the competition. >> the rock on which he stands is not a rock. it's the united states of america. joey chestnut. >> oh, boy. >> welcome back. was that his happy face? i don't get it. tony, i know you're talking about it later. i don't get it. >> i thought they were going to announce my name after my weekend, but no luck. >> i don't know. we're going to begin with this coronavirus. despite the soaring cases of the kr coronavirus, many americans packed beaches some without following the safety guidelines. you can see what appears to be hundreds without a mask at this 4th of july party. this was in michigan. this drone video shows an endless line of tents and umbrellas on a florida beach.
this was outside of tampa. >> and florida reported another 10,000 new cases on the 4th of july. that follows the state's daily record on friday. more than 11,400 cases. and we're getting a new look at how be pandemic effects minorities in america. the new york types obtained data showing black and latino people are about three times more likely to get the virus. there's more front line jobs preventing them from working in home, living in cramped apartments and relying on public transportation. >> florida one of the hardest hit states and miami one of the hardest hit cities. we're joined by the miami mayor. m mayor, good morning. you have a major outbreak. you said it's partially tied to reopening too soon. might you soon say stay home?
>> that's an option we've never taken off the table. some would like for us too. you have to look at hospitalization rates, where they're at. we have to monitor the death rate continually. our hospitalization rates are up. our new case numbers hit a record high this weekend. saturday, friday, and the day before wednesday. we had three days where we had over 2000 cases per day. that's four times greater than the lockdown in march. >> what's your timetable for making a decision about a stay at home order. i ask because a big study came out showing if new york issued the order two weeks earlier thousands of lives may have been saved. every day you wait could cost lives. what's your timetable? >> it's an incredibly delicate balance. understanding that the stay at home order is effective.
we were increasing about 35 cases a day before the stay at home order. after that we decreased by about 14 cases a day. we're increasing as of last thursday at a rate of 90 cases a day. almost three times faster than we were when we had a stay at home order. we're analyzing it every day. i have a call with the department of health, my usual 9:00 a.m. morning call with the department of health. then we make decisions after that. >> the governor of florida said he will not roll back the opening of business in the state. you're prepared to break with him on that issue? >> i don't look at it as political. for me miami is unique. we're the densest city in florida. we were the last one to open. i got some criticism for that, but from my perspective, i'm looking at the science and data.
we're making what we think are the best decisions for our residents. i try to stay away from the national political landscape or partnersh partisanship. this is about saving lives and making decisions for the benefit of my residents. >> your residents hear from you but also national and state figures. the governor has resisted a state-wide call for face masks. one of the decisions you've made is a mandatory face covering rule in miami. would you like to see it statewide? >> i think it should have statewide. i don't see the downside in making it mandatory statewide. to me it's no different than forcing people to wear a seat belt. when you wear a seat belt it's a precaution. you're not guaranteed to live when there's a car accident but you have a much higher chance. so when you're wearing face masks, the studies i've seen demonstrate that face masks will
reduce the chance of getting the coronavirus by about 85%. for me, it's sort of a no brainer. >> the question is should it be federal as well. we heard the president say 99% of coronavirus cases in his view are totally harmless. does that line up with what you're seeing in miami? >> no. that doesn't line up. 99% are not totally harmless. i think there are a percentage, and maybe even large percentage that don't require hospitalization, but they're not problematic or not dangerous, i wouldn't go that far. i think unfortunately we're seeing more and more people be hospitalized and younger people. we lost a very young person, a young boy this week and a 40-year-old this week. we have to be very careful and monitor this closely every single day. >> we'll continue to do it as well. mayor, thank you very much.
they share their thoughts about the men who died at the hands of police. >> we take it day by day. >> hardest part? >> the questions that my daughter asks. >> like? >> can she go to heaven? when is she going to be able to see her daddy again? >> next our exclusive interview with both women. you're watching "cbs this morning." watching "cbs this morning." , who've got their eczema under control. with less eczema, you can show more skin. so roll up those sleeves. and help heal your skin from within with dupixent. dupixent is the first treatment of its kind that continuously treats moderate-to-severe eczema, or atopic dermatitis, even between flare ups. dupixent is a biologic, and not a cream or steroid. many people taking dupixent saw clear or almost clear skin, and, had significantly less itch. don't use if you're allergic to dupixent.

the police killings of george floyd in minneapolis and rayshard brooks in atlanta have shaken up millions, but no one feels the impact more than the two women in their lives. rayshard brooks' widow, tomika miller, and george floyd's partner, that's roxie washington. we invited them to speak with us together. they talked exclusively with mark strassmann about their loss and the legacy of both men.
good morning to you, mark. i'm thinking they must have had a whole lot to say to each other. >> reporter: no question, gayle. here's why -- both women belong to a club that no one wants to be a member of, and the reason is the initiation fee. it is unthinkable. a black man dies violently in this country, his relatives grieve, and no one understands their stab of pai like another family who has gone through the same thing. roxie washington and tomika miller had never met. >> i really, really hope you get through it -- >> i will get through it -- >> right. >> reporter: they relate to each other's anguish like best friends. >> don't stop -- >> i ain't never going to stop. retirement washington's partner was george floyd. on may 25th, he died on a minneapolis street, a cop's knee pressed on his neck for more than eight minutes. 18 days later, an atlanta cop suspected rayshard brooks of dui. when brooks ran, officer garrett
rolfe shot him in the back. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: brooks was tomika miller' husband. father of four children. >> we take it day by day. >> reporter: hardest part? >> is the questions that my daughter asks. >> reporter: like? >> can she go to heaven. when is she going to be able to see her daddy again. >> reporter: the two of you, what was it like to meet for the first time? >> when i saw you and the babies, i was like i got to get them. >> reporter: like millions, miller watched george floyd die. did you and rayshard talk about it? >> we actually did. my husband was in disbelief. he was heartbroken. he actually cried. >> reporter: it must have surreal when it came back -- >> when it happened to me, i couldn't believe it. i never thought it could happen. >> reporter: millions also watched the shooting of rayshard brooks including roxie washington. >> when i saw it, i was like, not again. not again.
>> reporter: neither will watch the video of the man in her life dying. but both were fascinated by the protests that followed. >> it made me feel good to know that his name will be remembered until the end -- >> reporter: about someone they had never met before. >> but they loved him. >> reporter: what did the protests mean to you? >> that it brought all different colors and races together. it means so much to me. it means so much. >> reporter: 6-year-old gianna is the daughter of george floyd and roxie washington. >> she's like, daddy changed the world. down the line, we were going somewhere, she said, "mommy, i believe that there are some good cops and there are some bad c s cops." >> reporter: one officer involved in each death was charged with murder. derek chauvin sits behind bars for floyd's death, awaiting trial. garrett rolfe is free after
posting a $500,000 bond. >> i don't even want to speak about him. >> reporter: then came this moment -- >> i'm sorry. >> okay. >> reporter: washington slid over to comfort miller. she understood. derek chauvin has yet to enter a plea. his representatives did not respond to our request for comment. garrett rolfe's lawyers intend to fight the charges. they argue this his shooting was justified. why? because brooks fired a taser at rolfe. both women we spoke to, of course, want justice. to washington, justice is for both officers to spend the rest their lives behind bars. but miller told me at this point, she doesn't know what justice is. gayle? >> a lot of people are asking that question. there was a tender moment between the two of them because we were all saying "not again, not again" when we saw the death of rayshard brooks. i get the sense, did you get the sense in the room with them that it must have helped them both to
be able to talk to each other? they are, as you said, in a club on nobody wants to belong to. now i bet they're bonded for life. >> reporter: to talk to each other and to commiserate with many of the challenges since the shooting. i'll give an example -- something that touched me as a parent. both women having to explain what happened to their young children. take little gianna. her mother tried to make sure that gianna never saw the video of her father dying on television. but someone accidentally left the wrong channel on. the little girl saw it, and all of a sudden gianna had more questions. >> i keep thinking about those young children, too, and gianna's words, "my daddy changed the world." i don't know if she knows what she's saying, what it really means. she's right. he really did change the world. i think about those young kids. thank you, mark. good to see the two of them together. ahead, a possible name change for the washington redskins. why is this happening now is the question, and the nickname that
the team's quarterback is rooting for. you're watching "cbs this morning." well many people have such a misunderstanding as to how a reverse mortgage works. people think that the bank takes your home, but that is not true. that's absolutely 100% wrong. the home is ours. we can sell it if we want to at any time. i like the flexibility of not having a payment, but i can make the payment if i want to. you're responsible for keeping up your property taxes and you're responsible for paying your insurance on the property. for us, it was a security blanket.
the value of our house, was to fund our long-term health care. for years, reverse mortgage funding has been helping customers like these use the equity from their homes to finance their lives. they know the importance of having financial security. make an appointment so they can tell you how it works. it's a good thing. access your equity. stay in your home. have peace of mind.
one of the oldest nfl teams could be, could be on the brink of changing its name after decades of criticism. washington redskins head coach ron rivera says, quote, this issue is of personal importance to him. he's working with owner dan snyder on possible replacement flick names to redskins. quarterback drawayne haskins li the red tails to honor the us it keith -- us it keeley airmen. now there is pressure from some of the sponsors that pay the team's bills. chip reid with more from washington. >> reporter: since the 1930s, the washington redskins have ruled over football in the nation's capital. now the famous moniker looks to be on the out ths. the team will undergo a thorough review of the team's name.
redskins owner dan snyder has been slow to embrace a name change. in fact, in an interview seven years ago, he famously said, "we'll never change the name. it's that simple. never. you can use caps." he also said this in an interview with espn in 2014 -- >> i understand where the name came from. i understand that it means and obviously when we sing "hail to the redskins, braves on the war path," it means honor, it means respect, it means impeachment trial -- it means pride. >> reporter: pressure from sponsors may force his hand. >> this is a great day in terms of progress. >> reporter: the principal chief of cherokee nation -- >> it still hurts when depictions of native americans or slurs are used in a commercial sense or are reduced to mascots or caricatures. >> reporter: the national congress of american indians also weighed in writing "this moment has been 87 years in the
making. indian country deserves nothing less. the time to change it now." >> the tide is shifting so -- so vigorously. >> reporter: rhoden is a columnist with espn's "the undefeated." he says the team names like the washington redskins have no place in sports. >> the history of the name, there's nothing nice about it. it was never intended to be nice. it was a bloody nickname. it still is a bloody nickname. i think most people say we've got to move on. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," chip reid, washington. >> boy, you know, sometims the hardest part with a thing like this is coming up with the next name that sounds as natural. the washington red tails rolls right off the tongue, vlad. >> the vent that bill rhoden gave is apropos, indeed. film critics say the new documentary "june lewis," is a must see. the editor and chief of zora, a publication for and by women of
color, will tell us why the film is at the top of her list. they worked to cover the mural with black paint and police are calling the couple's decision an act of vandalism and the mural has since been restored: today beaches in pacifica and half-moon bay are back open. they've been closed since friday to prevent the spread of
the virus over the fourth of july weekend. the close uros applied to visitors and locals. we take a look at the roadways right now. if you're headed out of the door and plan on taking the san mateo bridge eastbound, we have a traffic alert due to an accident and delays dipping down to about 21 miles per hour. stick with the dun barton bridge and slowing due to spectators and the rest of the bay area bridge is quiet and bay bridge looking good and metering lights are off. mary. gianna, we're cooler and breezy for today. i'm tracking the return of our ocean breeze kicking in for us. temperatures will be about 5 to 10 degrees cooler compared to yesterday. so we are looking at those temps in the mid 60s in san francisco, 87 in concord and 80
welcome back to "cbs this morning." it is time to bring you some of the stories that are the "talk of the table" this morning. this is where we all pick a story we'd like to share with each other and all of you. so tony, you're kicking us off. what have you got? >> i'm going to bring us back to the hot dog-eating contest that we showed briefly at the top of the show. i've got a lot to say. bear with me. i know the pictures are hard. this is one of new york city's 4th of july traditions. the nathan's famous hot dog eating contest took place indoors. i can't look at the picture. because of the memorial, there was no crowd. reigning champ joey chestnuts said he missed the crowd but he had 75 hot dogs and buns in ten
minutes. mickey soto finished 48 to take her second context sieve women's title. they took home $10,000 and i presume a terrible stomachache. this raises the question -- >> why -- >> it raises the question in my mind of why we overeat in the first place. seems that we are hardwired for it in some way. in the olden days, we didn't know when the next hot dog was going to get here. what do you think? >> you know, it's -- i love hot dogs. so don't get me wrong. it's the soggy bun, it's the soggy bread that just sort of grosses me out every time i look at it. listen, bravo to the both of them. $10,000 richer after the weekend. that's not too bad. i wonder how their tumets feel today. they -- tummies feel today. they keep coming back. mine is in the sunday "new york times." one of my favorite things on sunday to read the paper. i like the wedding section. this featured the wedding of
78-year-old -- 78-year-old -- carol ryan and 79-year-old cliff peterson. they started with a survey last year. she filled out a survey for the college of new jersey, a 50th anniversary celebration. he was on the event committee. look at these two. cliff said that every one of carol's answers just blew him away, and he was one of my favorite words, enchanted by her writing. three months after they met, they got engaged. they tied the knot in may in a small ceremony. he said they got a lot of response the, and he liked all of them. but there was something about every single thing that she wrote he liked. he called her up and invited her to the celebration and said, you know, maybe we could go for a walk on campus when you're there. of course they did that. i'm smitten because it says to me, and i believe this, i love a good love story, it's never too late to fall in love. i like these two. cheering them on. you look at their faces, and they look so happy. i like that. >> i like that, too. the idea of love always.
i can get behind that, gayle. vlad duthiers, engaged, just saying. >> that's my point. >> waiting for a date. me and marian still waiting for a date. >> better set a date. don't wait until you're 79. no need. >> we'll have to do one of those zoom weddings soon. >> i'm team marian. team marian. the question -- no pressure, vlad. no pressure. >> all right. >> he goes, tee hee. >> this should be the "talk of the table." when i'm getting married. you know that i'm a huge "star wars" fan, huge comic book fan, right. another fan is getting attention from disney after he made this very cool tiktok video. check it out. julian base is a theater major at georgia state university. carries this light cyber. he made a video -- bam -- then turns into spider-man. his video has been viewed more

eight appear on "the new york times" nonfiction list, and four appear on both amazon and barnes and noble's top-ten lists. vanessa de luca joins us with her recommendations when it comes to what to read, what to watch, what to listen. editor-in-chief of "zora," the online publication by and for women of color. good morning. i was so looking forward to talking to you. i'm glad to see you in person even though it's only virtually. here you go -- -- >> good morning. >> so the book's about -- good morning to you. the book's about race and anti-racism. certainly climbing the charts. number one, i happen to think that's a good thing. what do you attribute it to? >> i think it's a matter of people wanting to inform themselves, to become more knowledgeable about what's going on in the world, what the period is, time period that we're dealing with right now in this moment. and to get a better understanding of current events.
>> so what goes into your -- your decisionmaking process as to who makes your list? what do you look for? >> i look for just smart, informative, thoughtful, thought provoking, informative pieces from movies to tv to podcasts, to books, you name it. >> i like for movies to tv because one of the movies i love, love, love was "waiting to exhale." first i read the book by terry mcmillan. i loved the book. was excited when it became a movie. the soundtrack is still one of the best i think ever done. but you're recommending this for teenage readers. and that surprised me. i thought that that would be a little too advanced for them. why do you think this is a good book for teenagers? >> well, it's part of our "zora"
created a literary cbooks by women. we felt it focuses friendship, on solidarity, what it means to be a true friend to one another and to support one another through good times and bad. and that's why i thought that this would be a good read. >> okay. i get that. i get that. it definitely is about supporting each other. when the men go crazy and don't act right. you're right. that's a really good recommendation when you look at it that way. what about adult readers? >> oh, for adult readers, there's so much out there. one book that i think is critical to read is so you want to talk about race. this is by agiom aluo, a good starting point for anyone who wants to have a conversation about race with their friends, with their family, even with your colleagues. it answers such questions as
what are microgressions or what does it mean to check your white privilege. there's so many other questions that it answers. it really is a great starting point. then there's also "assada." >> i saw -- yeah? >> oh, yes. andre leon tally -- >> he was on -- >> in the trenches. yes. that's a wonderful book. it's a memoir, but you learn so much about him. you learn about his humble beginnings. you learn about his soaring to the top, upper echelon of high fashion world in ways that you may not have imagined the things that he struggled with. but he actually not only survived a lot of the racism that he encountered in career, but he also thrived. >> yeah. we had him on the show. you're absolutely right. one more thing. i like this because it's a viacomcbs show, "the good
fight." why did you pick that? >> i absolutely adored dellroy lindo. i think he is one of the most underrated actors out here in the universe today. i think that he's just, you know, just smart, his portrayal on "the good fight," is fantastic. it's just -- i think it's one of those if you're looking for a good binge watch, there is definitely the one that you want to indulge in. >> all right. vanessa de luca, thank you very much. you've got a good list, good variety. we thank you for your time this morning. very nice to meet you. on today's "cbs this morning" podcast, you will hear filmmaker don porter -- dawn porter talking about her documentary idea john lewis: good trouble." coming up next, the world for home. we're going to take you to one of italy's most historic cities. how the country hit hard by the coronavirus is making big, big changes to reopen museums and
get your passports ready. in "the world from home," we're bringing you the world since travel is so limited this summer. today the louvre museum in paris will reopen to visitors for the first time since it was shut down because of the virus. ancient landmarks and museums are also starting to reopen in
italy, one of the countries hit hardest by the pandemic. visiting these historic sites will be very different this year. chris livesay gives us an inside look at how things have changed in the city of florence. >> reporter: it's been caused a treasure chest of the renaissance. now after nearly three months of coronavirus shutdown, the museum in florence has been unlocked. visitors get a thermal scan and new rules of the road -- about where to walk and stand. >> standing six feet apart like we're doing right now. >> reporter: director ika schmidt said the pandemic might have changed museums forever. in some ways for the better. >> it means that people won't just need to look whether coming close to a master work like "the birth of venus," they bump into somebody else or somebody else's selfie, but they can really concentrate on the work of art. >> reporter: so you think botticelli would approve?
>> he srncertainly would. >> reporter: at the cathedral, social distancing necklaces are all the buzz. in the revenue cans, it was the dome that was cutting edge. today it's these. but it does allow you to enjoy the art safely, says that keitheral director timothy burden. after this traumatic experience, people need to return not only to normalcy but to the nourishment that beauty and history can give. that said, obviously it would be a cruel joke that the monuments and the museum became in turn places of contagion. >> reporter: a contagion that's killed half a million people worldwide and halted tourism here. a gut punch that's feared will cost the italian economy 13% of gdp. even as sites reopen, international flights remain largely grounded meaning few can
get here. the coliseum used to count an average of 16,000 visitors daily. today, only 600, mostly locals. and the museum, over 2,000 people came on the first sunday it reopened compared to 8,000 on many sundays before the pandemic. social distancing may have its advantages, but for italy's bottom line, it's anything but springtime. now the museum may be reopening, but it's still monumentally difficult just to get to italy. so the museum has done something for the very first time and launched its own tiktok account, posting playful videos of the artwork set to music. the director at the museum tells me in difficult times like these it's important to remember to smile. for "cbs this morning," chris livesay, florence. >> if you can't go, at least now you can watch. chris, thank you very much. before we go, working from home can be a major challenge with many summer camps closed. we'll show how families can
