captioning funded by cbs good morning. it is wednesday, august 16th, 2017. welcome to "cbs this morning." baltimore moves quickly overnight to remove them. they're working to remove the controversial cymbal. >> the defind president trump reverts to blaming both sides for the violence in charlottesville. this morning critics including senior republicans say there is no moral equivalency between racists and americans defying hate. >> plus thousands of people reportedly have evidence that their biological fathers were catholic priests. first on "cbs this morning," a
reporter who documented abuse by priests. and how small towns across america are preparing to host for eclipse watchers. some may need the national guard's help. >> but first your world in 90 seconds. >> what about the alt left? do they very in semblance of gift? >> what trump did today was a moral disgrace. >> what i just saw gave me the wrong kind of chills. >> i have too much eye makeup on to start crying. it's disgusting. >> the leaders will have to distance themselves from the president. the question is how do they get back together. >> you look at both sides. there's blame on both sides and i have no doubt about it and you don't have any doubt about it either. >> diplomacy seems to be winning out. >> whether they escalate or
de-escalate the rhetoric, the capability remains. >> rescue workers are still searching for victims who may be under the debris. >> the hope is to be able to find any one of them alive. >> in portugal a fatal accident. >> a tall tree falling into a crowd. >> he's issuing an apology over an auction selling >> and all that matters -- >> this press conference today, it's supposed to be about infrastructure. >> which is terrible. i think first thing you do is don't burn bridges. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> when the president was asked about his embattled strategist
steve bannon, he gave a vote about something. >> i like him. he's a good man. he's not a racist, i can tell you that. >> it's the third thing someone says about you unprompted is he's not a racist? you've got a problem. willielcome to "cbs this morning." >> crews in baltimore took down four monuments overnight including a prominent statue of generals robert e. lee and stonewall jackson. other cities around the country are removing their confederate memorials. julianna goldman is in baltimore. julianna, good morning. >> good morning. people have been driving by this morning honking and cheering. one other car passed by yelling
out the window. stinking communists. they passed a resolution on monday to strike down four confederate statues across the city. a number of people gathered at the robert e. lee and stonewall jackson statue behind me was lifted off its base. larry hogan said he would push to remove a former court justice. it appears another that was removed overnight was that statue. and in alabama they worked to cover the soldiers and sailors monument. and you have north carolina where the state's governor says he wants to bring down confederate monuments from around the state anything on public property and then in
lexington, kentucky, the county voted to move forward with a proposal to relocate two statues from the city. gayle, a recent cataloging from the southern poverty law center counted 718 confederate statues across the country. you can bring that number down to 714. >> thank you very much, julianna. president trump said he was right the first time about the protest in charlottesville. his review and criticism is drawing an avalanche of condemnation. he backed off monday's statement denouncing white supremacist groups. instead he repeated his original response from saturday and asked whether left wing counterdemonstrators have any amount of guilt. >> house speaker paul ryan wrote on twitter, we must be clear,
white supremacy is repulsive. >> marco rubio wrote. and john mccain wrote there is no normal -- >> but david duke thanked the president for his honesty and courage to tell the truth about charlottesville. margaret brennan is in studio 57. she was at trump tower yesterday trying to get a question to the president and he was lobbing one back at you. margaret, good morning. >> good morning. well, president trump's caught all the senior officials by surprise as he put himself in the politically complicated opinion of appearing to defend the alt-right, a coalition of conservative and fringe groups. >> i think there's blame on both sides. >> reporter: in a tense exchange with reporters a frustrated
president trump lashed out, doubling down on his initial ee kwiv cal statement that both sides were to blame for charlottesville violence. >> you had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that. >> reporter: growing increasingly combat ichb we the press, mr. trump appeared to defend the group that organized the white rally. >> i've condemned neo-nazis. i've condemned a lot of groups. but not all of those groups were neo-nazi, believe me. not all of them were supremacists. this week it's robert e. lee. i wonder is it president jefferson next week? >> he asked for a call to denounce attacks on the white
house staff. >> you mean senator mccain who voted against us getting good health care. >> and he went on to say those on the far left and the alt-right are ee dually at fault. >> senator mccain defined them -- >> what about the old left -- excuse me. what about the alt-left that came charging at the alt-right. do they have any semblance of guilt? >> as the president spoke, his new chief of staff john kelly stood to the side with his head down. the limits to kelly's ability to keep the president on message were laid bare as mr. trump defended his original statement on the rally. >> i brought it. i brought it. >> reporter: which avoided condemning the white supremacists that spoke his name. >> the first statement is a fine statement, but you don't make statements that direct unless you know the facts. >> he condemned the driver who rammed his car into protesters
and kill third degree 2-year-old heather heyer. >> you can call it terrorism, call it murder, you can call it whatever you want. the drive bhiernld the car is a murderer, and what he did is a horrible, horrible inexcusive thing. >> the white house is asking allies to help defend mr. trump, and we've seen the talking points. they urge supporters to say the president is a voice for unity and calm and to say that counterprotesters were equally as violent as the armed white nationalists. >> margaret, this press conference or q and a was completely unexpected. but i want to discuss yo about this. standing by his side were gary cohen and steve mnuchin, his treasury secretary who are both jewish. does his statement perhaps put pressure on some of the aides about their future inside the white house? >> well, this is as you say people of great stature, reputation with long careers,
and you can see particularly in fwar cohen's face as he looked out at our faces to see what we were doing as he had a sense of what was happening in that room because you could feel how frustrated and how angry the president was. everyone was really sort of taken aback by that. but what was also amazing was this quick turnaround. right after that, the president got in the elevator, and elaine chao and the press secretary came town and tried to answer questions about infrastructure. this is what it's supposed to be about. he took it totally off script and put them in an odd position having to answer questionsing neo-nazis. they were there to answer questions about roads and bridges. >> he said, jews will not replace us in very loud tones and then to come out and support them was very upsetting to a lot
of people watching that. >> it's something we're so not used to. but as you say, this particular set of issues is just so inflammatory that to go off script carries a lot of danger with it. >> thanks margaret. >> thank you, margaret. >> we want to fact-check the president's statement that both sides are responsible for the violence in charlottesville. video shows them fighting with each other. the white supremacist side seemed to be more prepared. good morning. >> good morning. the rally had. even started whelp clashes broke out in the parking lot. it's clear elements of both sides showed up for a fight. >> not all of those people were neo-nazis, believe me.
>> saturday's rally in charlottesville was one o the largest gathering of white supremacists in more than a decade. they were armed with guns and batons and racist symbols. the counter-protesters were overwhelmingly unarmed but there were those who used shields and sticks and clashed with white supremacists, but they were largelied you numbered that you had a frup on the other side who came in charging without a permit, and they were very, very violent. >> james fields jr. who traveled from ohio to join the neo-nazis was behind the wheel when counter-protester heather heyer was run over and killed. and a man received several
stitches. they warned of the persistent threat of lethal violence from white supremacists who were responsible for 49 homicides, more than any other extremist movement. yesterday the president insisted the pictures didn't tell the whole story. >> they looked leak they had rough bad people. neo-nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. i will tell you this. there are two sides of the story. >> for comparison t last white supremacists rally had a few dozen kkk members and a thousand protesters. charlie? >> chief analyst john dickerson
is with us this morning. good morning, john. >> god morning, charlie. >> what do you think about the message from the president and the challenges? >> the message from the president the last few days is the racist rallies were wrong but at the same time he talked about the counter-protesters. the thing people are left with is the president's reputation and bluntness and the powerful force he speaks about big truth but doesn't spend so much time on the facts didn't seem to be so worked about up the big truth that you had neo-nazi and white supremacists protesting. this a lack of proportion when the ideas are a direct threat and on session to the founding
fathers of the principles to which he leads. >> you have republicans coming out criticizing the president for seeming to not denounce david duke's support. what do you make of the implications of that, john? >> for republicans in particular they have to distance themselves from the president and the question is whether this issing in that can be repaired because the has now spoken twice on this issue and has not met the moment. and you have particularly for republicans, they will always be faced with being asked about this. anybody who makes remarks that can be received improvingly by imperial wizard of the kkk david duke is just somebody that republicans can't embrace. and so how do you work on infrastructu infrastructure, for example? democrats are not going to be able to vote on anything supported by the president who seemed ready to keep fight about
this to the exclusion of all else. >> john, do we expect people working for the president at the highest level say this has gone too far, i cannot stand for this, and i have to leave the administrati administration? >> it is a new challenge for those people because it's both the specifics of the case which is the lack of a blunt and clear message about thoroughly objectionable ideas, but then it's also about chaos and lack of control in a white house and whether you want to continue being toward that. it's in siege moment, and so it's not going to get much better. >> john dickerson, thank you for joining us this morning. secretary of state rex tillerson said the u.s. is still interested in a dialogue with north korea, but it's um to kim jong-un to make that happen. thousands of people took to the streets. they demanded a peaceful solution to north korea. ben tracy is there with people
who want president trump to tone down his rhetoric. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. people in seoul are used to dealing with a north korean threat but they're increasingly worried about this sparring match and that it could actually lead to an actual war and they could pay the price, but now it looks like both sides are treeing to find a way to speak a bit more constructively. if north korea ended seemingly endless barrage of missile tests, washington says it's willing to negotiate with pyongyang, especially after kim jong-un decided to withhold setting off missiles. >> we'd like to hold talks with them when they're serious. serious toward denuclearization. we haven't seen that yet. >> all sides seem to be obvious. >> this is the border between
south and north korea. just over there, north korea has thousands of pieces of artillery pointed at the south. it's estimated if they were to release those, 64,000 people would die in south korea on the first day. the u.s. said they would have to abon don their weapons entirely before they would begin talks. >> there was some effort, i think, to recognize north korea's security curbs and sort of meet them halfway. >> reporter: john delury is a professor of international studi studies. >> they'll take that. i think things like a summit with donald trump and the selfie between these two zoord figures is the kind of thing they'd be
>> reporter: we're in an area known as the dead zone, an area where life can't exist. the biggest zone in the u.s. is in the gulf of mexico and this year it's big than ever. what that means for the future, coming up on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" responsible soared by new emergen-c edge plus. emerge and see. spark the energy within you every day. emergen-c energy+. emerge and see. wabout type 2 diabetes. you have type 2 diabetes, right?

good morning. i'm rahel solomon. mayor kenney says it is time to talk about the frank rizzo statue across from city hall. a large sign with a message was taped to the front of the statue last night. two eggs were also thrown at it. people say rizzo treated the african-american community unfairly. of course the statue does have supporters. katie, it feels hot and muggy out there. >> yes. for starters we've got that low level moisture stuck around from yesterday and that's allowed this fog to form. that's our initial issue just getting you out the door right now. you've definitely got poor visibility in more spots than others.

this press conference went on a on and on. i felt sorry for the lady standing next to president trump. she was there to talk about roads. she got caught listening. take look. >> was george washington a slave owner? are we going to take down -- excuse me. >> now, that's elaine chao, right? she's trump's secretary of transportation, which is good, because she's looking for the fattest possible way to transport herself out of there. >> when you look at it, it does
look a little uncomfortable. afterward as margaret pointed out they tried to come down and talk about the infrastructure. >> she had a poker face. the others to not. you saw others with their head bowed. gary cohen was sharing eye contact with other reporters. so there was definitely a sense of uncomfortableness. >> some say they look like they wanted to crawl into the pink marble of the lobby. welcome back to "cbs this morning.." members of a council resigned because of mr. trump's prere response. mr. trumka is the latest to step down. he said this, quote, cannot sit on a council for a president who tolerates bigotry and domestic
terrorism. >> he joins a growing list. it also includes ceos of merck, intel, and under armour along with four members of manufacturing. in the next half hour richard trumka will join us to explain his decision to quit. that that a look at headlines around the globe. "the new york times" says the threat to end subsidies would send premiums and deficits higher. the subsidies reimbursed for reduce deductibles and out-of-pocket costs. the ceo says if mr. trumpcares out his threat, premium for the most popular health insurance plans would increase by next year. it would increase by $194 billion in coming decade. >> "the wall street journal" reports that apple is making a
commitment to hollywood programming. it plans to introduce as many as 10 original shows. they can be streamed or shown on a video service. and boston globe.com investigates the children of catholic priests. the paper reports there are thousands of people who have strong evidence they're sons or daughters of clergy members p they say they're often neglected or shamed into silence. "boston globe's" team reporter michael rezendes is here. >> reporter: geoghan is accused of molesting dozens of children. in 2002 "the boston globe" ran more than 600 reports revealing the scandal within the catholic chur. hundreds of priests had sexually abused thousands of children over the decades and church
leaders covered it up. >> the wreck ig nation of the most prominent member in the catholic church. >> they knew and they let it happen. two kids, okay? >> the reporters became the story in the 2015 move "spotlight." >> and the oscar goes to -- >> it won two oscars including best picture. they unveil a new report which in they call it worldwide. priests fathering illegitimate children. >> i was blaming myself like i was his mistake. by him having a child, i was his mistake. >> we reached out to vatican officials regarding this the now reporting from bostonglobe.com and they refused to comment. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is incredible reporting. i know you spent so much time on
it. first, how many children of priests might there be? >> there's many more than people assume. probably in the thousands. just recently about two years ago a sop of a priest in ireland set up a website and he's heard scores of people from around the world who say they're sons and daughters of catholic priests. >> where did you first hear of the story? >> jim graham. he spent many years. i was impressed with what he suffered, the pain he entoured, app the detective work. but it was still one person. and then vince doyle called me and gave me information from his website. >> systemic is the word. the church would like you to believe it's very rare exceptions. >> yes, correct. i think it's the same as with
sex abuse. whenever there was a scandal, the church asked you to relate to it as an exemption. >> when you play it out, it would make sense. you write in the article many of them suffer in silence, in secrecy. how does it affect them growing up? >> i think they suffer emotionally, financially, spiritually by not having a loving father and very often by not having a loving father who provi provides child support. >> what do you do now? >> these people are coming together. they would like the church, the vatican, to put policies in place and give guidance when a priest has fathered a child because right now they have no
guidance. >> cardinal saep oh masean o'ma has. he gave this statement to us at th cbs news. said if a priest father as child he has a moral obligation to step aside from ministry and provide for the care and needs of the mother and the child. in such a moment, their welfare is the highest priority. >> i think cardinal o'malley's statement is important because more often than not, the first reaction of the priest is to cover up the fact he's become a parent and what cardinal o'malley is saying and i think this is in line. the pope says, no. if you father a child, your responsibility is no locker to the church. it's to the child. >> you say this is not isolated.
celibacy means a priest does not get married but it does not mean he cannot have children. does that make sense? >> yes. i think in certain parts of the world some priests have different views of what celibacy means. >> the cardinal is in australia defending himself that yes. cardinal pell. >> a very powerful cardinal. >> he's the third highest ranking. he's been criminally charged in australia as you said. it's a very, very significant development because after all these years of having to confront the problem the vatican has still not come up with a set of policies for dealing with clergygy sexual abuse. >> are most of these children born from abuse or consensual relationships? >> i think very often they're from consensual relationships. i think the mothers never filed for child support because they
still love the father of their children, often they're devout catholics and they know not only did he father a child but they're a man of god. >> and many are told they're going to get out of the priesthood. >> yes, many with imhave been strung along. part 2 will be publishnd on sunday on "boston globe".com. a dead zone is in the gulf of mexico. ahead, we'll take you under the water that's causing the water to suffocate fish or cause them to leave. we'll be right back with this. but now it's our turn to take control with stelara® stelara® works differently for adults with moderately to severely active crohn's disease. studies showed relief and remission, with dosing every 8 weeks. stelara® may lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections and may increase your risk

. good morning. i'm jan carabeo. rallies are set for today in our area in response to last weekend's violence in charlottesville. philadelphia responded immediately after what happened in virginia. tonight there will be a peace rally in north broad street in center city. there's also a vigil planned in montgomery county. now to the weather forecast with katie fehlinger. >> hey there, jan. fog has been an issue especially folks in the outlying counties towards the shore and especially in the farmland and the countryside to the west of philadelphia. we do still have a fog advisory
but it will technically go out of effect at 8:00 a.m. i'm still finding pretty poor visibilities out there. quick check on that 7-day showing that we do break for sunshine and it's hot today. warm for stormy and steamy weather by friday. >> we're still seeing a little bit of fog in some of the camera shots most of which are looking okay. we have an accident here, schuykill eastbound. plus survey operations 95 southbound between cottman and betsy ross. >> our next update is at 8:25. and coming up on cbs this morning the president
council is separate, quite frankly, from the symbolism of being soules yated with it. the council itself is totally ineffective. it's never meant as a subterfuge to be able to deregulate industry. that's totally separate. but it's the symbolism of being associated with it that we rejected it yesterday. >> you say the american manufacturing council never met or done anything? >> no. it's never met. >> are you hoping other leaders will step down, richard? >> i think they have to have their conscience and follow
their conscience. we believe it's unacceptable to aid and abet or even tolerate any group that's founded on racism and bigotry. we should be fighting against that and eliminating that. and we decide thad we wanted to get off of that, but here's the second question they ought to ask themselves. okay. so now they get off the council. but will they accept all the benefits of that council after it confers them? >> here's my question. >> if you're really standing by your convictions, you would do both. >> here's my question for you. after there's a sense of creating more jobs and you had met with him, are you now urging all labor members to with draw their support to this president because of the views he reflected this that press conference yesterday? >> look. we didn't support the president in the election, but after the election, we thought we had an
obligation for the country and to workers and to my members to try to come together where we could. and we identified a couple of places. it was infrastructure, it was manufacturing, it was trade where we could actually come together and do some good. if we can in the -- in the future if we can work together to get things done there, we will continue to do that. but we will reject and continue to reject any motion of legitimacy for groups like the white nationalistsings the ku klux klan, and other like-minded groups because we don't see any legitimacy to a group that their founding principle is racism and bigotry. >> but is it a stain on this president to say what he said on saturday and then to reinforce it yesterday? >> it was shocking to me. i think what it did was it gives
them a legitimacy that they're not entitled to. >> richard, he also said this. that by giving people more jobs, that would help end racism. what did you make of that? >> i think he's confusing issues because jobs are create bud people are excluded because of how they look, who they worship, who they love and they're eliminated, then those jobs are beyond their reach. we're all about creating jobs and opportunities for everybody so no matter what you look like, where you came from, who you love, you have the ability to let them take you anywhere you can. his statements were shocking. if anything, i thought, i'll pray for you because you really need to be prayed for when you
make those kind of statements. >> richard, there are dozens of other well respected executives that sit on these councils. are you also urging them to step down? >> i think they have to follow their own conscience. we did what we thought was right. they should do what they think is right. we believe that the symbolism of being associated with that spirited defense of racism and bigotry was just unacceptable. >> all right. richard trumka, we thank you very much for joining me. >> thanks for having me on. i really appreciate it. >> we do too. more than a million live in the path of the total ee clipgs but more than 10 million will converge. what

welcome back to "cbs this morning." if you're regular watchers, we usually check headlines. given the last few days we want to take the time to share something we think is very, very special. >> violent protesters in charlottesville have prompted many americans to wonder how we move forward as a nation. hate cannot drive out hate. only love can do that. john lewis is the one who affirms that. he encouraged people to speak up, speak out, and participate in the democratic process. decades before his service on capitol hill, he risked his life
fighting for equal rights. this year congressman lewis wrote a letter to his younger self. he reflects on his journey and his push to bring people together in our ongoing series "note to self." >> young john lewis, you're so full of passion. in your lifetime you will be arrested 45 times, and your mission, to have redeemed the soul of america. in 1956 when you were only 16 years old, you and some of your brothers and sisters and first cousins went down to the public library trying to get library cards, trying to check out some books. and you were told by the librarian that the library is for whites only, not for
coloreds. i say to you now when you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have a moral obligation to continue to speak up, to speak out. >> i can no longer go along with an evil system. >> you became inspired by martin luther king and rosa parks. something touched you and suggested that you write a letter to dr. king. you didn't tell your teachers or your mother or your father. dr. king wrote you back and invited you to come to montgomery. in the meantime you have been admitted to a little school in nashville, tennessee.
♪ it's a sign of the ages >> and it was there that you got involved in a sit-in. you'd be sitting there in an oralerly peaceful nonviolent fashion, and somebody willnd spt cigarette down your back or pour hot water or hot coffee on you. you got arrested the first time, and you felt so free. you felt liberated. you felt like you had crossed over. >> free at last, free at latest, thank got almighty we are free at last. >> you probably would never believe it, but the boy from troy as dr. king used to call you would become the embodiment
of nonviolence in the world. >> we must wake up, wake up. we cannot stop and we will not and cannot be patient. >> two years after you speak at the march on washington, you will see the face of death leading the marriage across t march across the bridge. >> we dramatize to our nation and to the world our determination to win first-class s citizenship. you were beaten on that bridge. we thought you were going to die. but you would make it. you would live to see your mother and father cast their
first votes. >> the change we need doesn't come from washington. change comes to washington. >> you'll also live to see the segregated nation you live in and an african-american president and his family to the white house. and guess what? guess what young john by some divine providence will live to send a message down to the ages. that man will be nominated on the 45th anniversary of the march on washington. all of those signs you saw as a little child that said white men, colored men, white women, colored women, those signs are gone, and the only place kwlous
see those signs today will be in a book, in a museum, on a john, thank you for going to the library with your brothers, your sisters, that kind of thing. you were denied a library card. you were saddam sad, but one dade you wrote a book called "walking with the wind," and the same library invited you to come back for a book signing where black and white citizens showed up and after the book signing, they gave you a library card. and believe as dr. king and
randolph taught you, it doesn't matter whether we're white, black, latin america, america, that maybe our foremothers and forefathers all came here on different ships, but we're all in the same boat now. john, you understood the words that dr. king when you said we must learn to live together as brothers and sisters. if not, we will perish as fools. >> as he read that and as we watched that, that was total silence in the studio, suggesting the power of one man's experience and the power of his words. >> it's a powerful reminder even the second time around it to see it and it seems so appropriate to play during these times
because the history of this country is very rich and sometimes we need a reminder to see where we've come from. there are a lot of jokes going around, but it's not funny. i think it's great we can be reminded where we've come from and what we've accomplished in this country. >> he talks about moral obligations and the values and what the actions of what one man can do and john embodies that in the most valuable way. >> and to have the courage as he said to be committed to speak out against judgement and racism. >> in his 20s, early 20s. >> beautifully, beautifully done. thank you. very time already for today. >> thank you, john lewis. >> we've got more coming up on "cbs this morning,"
his taste in lawyers, only the very best with just the right amount of dirty. that's a joke. that's a joke. >> with just the right amount of dirty. that's award-winning bob odenkirk. he's on the show "better call saul." it's earned nine prime-time emmy nominations. this season follows odenkirk's character jimmy mcgill as he maintains his law practice while turning into a shady attorney. >> what are you doing? >> i like her. >> don't you think we should wait. she's our first interview. we haven't even checked her resume. >> you're taking forever. >> i haven't found the right
fit. >> you're searching for adequate. >> you'rer is ping for more? >> she worked for the dmv, it's like the fifth circle of hell. >> welcome back. >> that was the great racy kim. she's beautiful and amazing talent. e i'm surrounded by excellence on this show. >> the two of you together is fun to watch. i love your carrick tell. and he's annoying at the same time. recently described as a pitch perfect deviousness, down on your luck hopelessfullefullesho. is he hard to play? >> he's a skroi to play. i like playing jimmy mcfwil. he's going to become saul. he's sort of trading out his humanity as the show progresses.
as we meet him, he's younger and wants to prove himself to his brother chuck. >> but does he have to do that? >> oh, yeah. this season, episode 7, he really took a big step toward being saul goodman. he played a prank or whatever. he manipulated the situation. o hurt somebody who he really liked, a character irene landry played by jean efron, a great actress.un the show. i said does he have to to this? does he have to be so bad? they said, hey, bob, that's the show. >> bob, do you remember "breaking bad?" on?remember that show you i said, you're right. i felt terrible that he made this choice because i do love
this guy. i love this guy jimmy mcfwil. and saul is a guy i don't like so much. he's very mercenary, selfless, art of the deal kind of guy who wants to use the people around him. he doesn't care how it affects them. jimmy is a guy who does care if he's hurt anyone. >> we're starting to see the turn. >> just like "breaking bad," great characters. but also great writing. perfection is the enemy of perfectly adequate. >> so many funny lines. they slip these funny lines into the show, and i -- that are -- there's a scene in this last season where he's crying. he's emotional crying, and he's trying to get his trouble with this insurance executive. he's crying and says, my brother has also these problems and he's
breaking up on the stands and i say, it's in the transcripts. crying and saying these little details is so funny. i come from comedy so when i get to do those comic moments, it's enjoyable for me. this season had michael mckeen as an outstanding performance. >> but your comedic chuck comes handy in the drama. >> thank you. i enjoy it. it's a wonderful thing to read a script and on page 5 there's a commercial he's making and a swindle and on page 10 there's an emotional heartbreaking scene between family members. >> you're also in steven spielberg's "pentagon papers. y ". >> yes. it's called "papers." it's about the pentagon papers. he got them from daniel ellsb g
ellsberg. he actually figured out who might have them. >> when does that come out? >> it comes out at christmas. tom hanks and meryl streep. >> plays? >>. >> katherine graham. you said you're in town because your daughter is making college tours and you said you all watched the news conference yesterday. you had a conversation yesterday. >> we had a difficult conversation. i was very emotional. you know, for kids that age, she's 16 1/2, and my son is 18. this is the world -- you kind of accept the world more. you're discovering it. it's a -- it makes me feel terrible that this is the world that they are stepping into. these are things that for us, you know, it's hard to -- beyond being -- i try to get past being flabbergasted by it. but i guess we all have to and ask ourselves what can we do to
get things to change back into a better place. >> lots of conversations going on between parents and children. >> yes. >> bob odenkirk. >> thanks for having me. tomorrow the growing crisis facing coral reefs in hawaii. carter evans takes a look from the sky. >> reporter: we're on the coast line of the big i land of hawaii. while it looks like a tropical paradise from the air, there is a hid p crisis under water. scientists now believe sunscreen could be part of the problem. we'll take you under water and show you coming up tomorrow on "cbs this morning."
good morning everyone. i'm jan carabeo. philadelphia mayor jim kenney says the city should begin to discuss the future of the frank rizzo statue across from city hall. a large sign with the message shame on president trump was taped to the statue last night. two eggs were also thrown at it. rizzo's son says his father treated everyone the same regardless of race. critics say rizzo treated philadelphia's african-american community unfairly. katie fehlinger. >> it ends up being all in all not a bad day. we started off with quite a bit of fog on cross the region. you see the little hint of green that shows up, no rain
whatsoever. we did have fog issues and we're still finding them in the far western suburbs. dense fog advisory continues into central pa but it has gotten progressively better throughout the course of the morning everywhere else. mild start to the day, the dew points are up there however so it will be a little on the muggy side. not too oppressive, but certainly a little haze to that sunshine. by tomorrow year still in the sun and friday brings about some storms but the weekend is looking up. >> thanks so much katie and a good morning to all of you. happy wednesday. two disabled vehicles here. left lanes on both of these cameras. construction here blue route northbound the left lane obviously clearly blocked until 3:00 p.m. and the accident here, 95 northbound near 141 bumper to
