problems in that area. so unfortunately britt a couple of alternates for you still slow going. you can avoid going down highway two and take i-76. another potential alternate is to take vas kwez which is slow as well. voluntary evacuations are over this morning as crews keep an eye of a yesterday saving this house. flames came just feet from the side of it and crews were spraying water on it. there was a large woodpile stacked near trees. this shed did not make it. the fire consumed it.

8:00 am
? ? it is thursday, august 18th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including the new leaders of donald trump's campaign. we'll ask his campaign manager first today's eye opener at 8:00. firefighters tell me they have never seen anything like this in their careers, a wildfire growing so fast. ryan lochte had already gotten back to the united states before the police requestioned him about his story. >> yesterday's meeting looked like a presidential campaign session. of course the spotlight was also on the two newest people. >> clinton has seen the voter
8:01 am
consequences. she was leading in michigan earlier this year but ended up losing. >> reporter: 40,000 homes damaged in the flood and it's clear parts of southern louisiana will never be the same. >> this routine trip turned into a nightmare for passengers and crew when a fire broke out in the engine room. >> the american track and field team had not won a single gold actually on the track here in rio, but on wednesday, that all changed in a very historic way. >> hillary clinton is having a great time. she's coasting. she she limits her interviews. she hasn't given a real press conference, realize this she hasn't given a real press conference in eight months. that's 250 days. the last time she gave a press conference jeb bush's family was still proud of him. that's how long it's been. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and margaret brennan.
8:02 am
southern california. crews in san bernardino county worked overnight to combat the flames. they're using 178 engine answer ten air tankers. firefighters say the wildfire is unlike any they have ever seen. right now the fire is only 4% contained. it covers 40 square miles. >> more than 82,000 people are under evacuation orders, flames threaten the town of roughly 45 northeast of los angeles. the fire destroyed several homes already but officials have not been able to give an exact number on that. hillary clinton is telling her supporters not to let themselves be complacent, just because of the polls. the latest surveys show clinton leading donald trump by double digits in three battleground states -- colorado, virginia, and pennsylvania. trump holds an 11-point lead in indiana. >> the trump ampaign yesterday
8:03 am
and new campaign manager, clinton told a rally in cleveland that the changes do not mean there is a new donald trump. >> i think it's fair to say that donald trump has shown us who he is. he can hire and fire anybody he wants from his campaign. they can make him read new words from a teleprompter, but he is still the same man who insults gold star women, mocks people with disabilities and thinks he knows more about isis than our generals. >> donald trump's new campaign manager kellyanne conway joins us at the table. welcome. >> thank you. >> what are you going to be doing, what a campaign manager does in terms of looking at the organization, what's happening in each state or are you going to be managing the candidate? >> a little bit of both. i think it's important to make
8:04 am
have the equipment, the tools they need. that also includes, charlie, our field operation, our data folks, our ground game. i'm a big believer in retail politics. i've seen it work many times and donald trump is a fantastic retail candidate. >> that is when he doesn't get in front of his own message. >> i think we've had a tremendous messaging week. we started monday with a very muscular speech about radical islamic terrorism, how to fight it, what it is, why it matters. many people in this country feel weee against an enemy we can't name but hardly see. the majority of americans feel less safe than they did several years ago. majority of americans feel that things can get better economically. so we'd like to take an uplifting, optimistic policy-centric message directly to the american people and that's our goal. >> it's the third management change in eight weeks. how is this not a campaign in trouble, from outsiders looking in? >> i see it, gayle, as a campaign that's expanding. with 12 weeks to g less than
8:05 am
>> 82 days. >> that's right, who is counting, right, with just 12 weeks to g gayle, we look at expansion as a critical and busy time for the campaign. when it comes to personnel and senior level staff, more is more. the more big minds and broad shoulders we can get inside the door, paul ma in a fort maintains his title and paul and steve and i yesterday were together. >> now you have three leaders it appears. at some point somebody has to make the call, somebody has to be in ch >> i'd say it's a combination of us and donald trump has made very clear who it is so i'm comfortable that. >> it's donald trump. >> well i respect him tremendously. he's the candidate. i would never have the fire in the belly charlie or the bile in the throat to do what he's done which is basically build a movement. most politicians build campaigns he's built a movement. >> paul manafort famously said if this campaign becomes a referendum on donald trump it has failed. this campaign has been a
8:06 am
similar remarks during the democratic convention last month because i noticed that the democrats when they're asked, i was at the convention in philadelphia and i noticed when hillary clinton and her supporters are asked in interviews, tell us what you're going to do about obama care, how would you fix the economy, how do you explain since 2013 they talk about donald trump. so hillary clinton wants to talk about donald trump, we want to talk directly to the american people. that's the difference. >> you want to talk to women in particular. >> yes. >> you were talking about having a good donald trump said about mrs. clinton, she lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on isis and all the many adversaries we face. he said she doesn't look presidential. do you get him to stop saying things like that? >> it's a choice in a contrast collection. >> that would alienate a lot of women because it seems to -- >> yesterday margaret i find to be disappointing and unbecoming for somebody who wants to be commander in chief of our own
8:07 am
something somebody else wrote well they can get him to read different words from a teleprompter. there's not a single job or uninsured american who gets health care from that nastiness and i'll pledge this to you because i'm with you, the way to speak to women and all americans is through issues. we've got to get away from this conte content-free campaign and on to the substance and talk to people who are struggling, even people doing well. how do they protect and feel secure. >> are you confident you can keep your campaign it's that problem that has complicated what you say you want to redirect it toward which is substance. zbl >> i'm confident he's finding joy on the job and relishes being out there with the crowds giving speeches partly on teleprompter but in the case of tuesday gayle at a rally he's able to interact with the individuals and what you don't see on the camera is the local media interviews, the meetings with families and other folks. so yes, i am confident that he could stay on message, but also
8:08 am
issues. i'd rather lose a campaign where we put it all on the field substantively where people saw the difference on the major issues of the day than win a campaign baseded on style. if this is about style he can go back to "the apprentice." that was fun and successful each lucrative. >> does style matter? >> yes. >> people want it to be about tone and temperament. it also needs to be about facts and figures. that's what you're seeing this week facts and figures. >> he has received an intelligence report. >> yes. >> i can't disclose that. i can tell you he took it seriously and -- >> you can't disclose whether he believed it or not? >> no about the details. >> i'm not asking details. did he believe the intelligence report that the cia prepared for him? >> yes, he did. >> he did? >> when you say believe he certainly is taking it seriously and digesting it. nobody looks at something that complicated in one sitting. so this will be an ongoing -- >> donald trump is not saying i
8:09 am
doing, he's not saying that? >> no he did not say that yesterday in my presence before or after the briefing and also yesterday speaking of national security and foreign policy we sat at a roundtable with generals, current congressmen, former congressmen and other notable national security experts, it was a great conversation where i also recall very interactive, his questions are one of somebody who wants to be commander in chief and wants to do well by our armed forces, by the american people, byur sit in that roundtable because it's symptomatic of the types of events we don't see as voters. did that briefing change any of the candidates views on the national security issues? >> i can't comment on that. i think what that briefing did and the roundtable that preceded it margaret, was it's allowing us to continue the conversation and equipping ourselves being informed. it's incredibly important for
8:10 am
for he and mrs. clinton to remain informed. even though she's been secretary of state the fact is that this changes every day and there are things that you and i will never know that now secretary clinton and mr. trump are learning and i think we should applaud that in a nonpartisan way. >> you were formerly with the ted cruz campaign and superpack. >> yes. >> ted cruz said what he had to say at the convention. what did you know about donald trump that ted cruz doesn't he promotes women. i'm told, i'm the first female republican campaign manager in presidential political history and that tells you a lot about donald trump, it also tells you a great deal about him that he never said that to me. hey we'd like a woman, are you available? i'm there based on merit but i think it's symptomatic of who donald trump is, in his own corporation elevating and promoting women. the other thing about donald trump to learn is that he doesn't look at things through a political lens. i think senators and congressmen and governors tend to.
8:11 am
it's very refreshing that donald trump speaks the way many americans speak. it's not always the perfect word because it hasn't been focused group and the pollster is not in his ear telling him what to say, how to think and who to be. at the same time he's enjoying conveying his thoughts in a way and wants to take that case to the people. he's also the guy who put political correctness on the campaign ballot this year. >> started out with 17 candidates, it's now down to one veter veterans. >> thank you very much, kellyanne. >> thank you for having me. a new study why sitting could kill you slowly even if you exercise. we're going to stand up to are this one with dr. tara narula, a cardiologist, is in our toyota green room to look at the

day. some of the research has shown, in fact, if you do exercise you can attenuate some of the problems that come with sitting but this new statement really says that regardless of how much exercise you do, you cannot undo the harms of sitting and that we need to think about these as two distinct entities, sitting and exercise that work through two different mechanisms and have different health consequences. >> what did it mean? >> we can undo or limit a little bit. >> that is what this surprises me. i exercise but i have one of these handy dandy underarm bandit says if i've been sitting too long and it says 60 minutes. what is bad if you're doing the exercise? what does it do for your body if you don't get up and walk around? >> in 1953 one of the first studies came out that said london bus drivers had a higher risk of coronary heart disease than conductors.
