donald trump is lashing out. he tweeted despite winning every poll, it is hard to do so when paul ryan and others give no support. clinton leads in a four way match-up. the poll was taken before sunday's debate, but after the relee of a 2005 video showing trump making aggressive sexual comments about women. for the first time chris christie says that i think he should have been more direct and focused on saying just i'm sorry and only i'm sorry. christie says he's disappointed, but he's still supporting donald trump. that follows paul ryan saying he will no longer defend or campaign with donald trump. yesterday donald trump said his comments were inappropriate but, quote, locker room talk.

it was attracting a lot of attention. for some way, this tape provided the perfect excuse for anyone who wanted to get off the trump train. this is the last chance to get off. but also, some people think it was the specific language that was in that tape which was so incredibly offensive. the tone that suggested sexual assault. >> you and your colleagues, jodie, specifically it was about white women that got people upset? >> there's a very interesting piece in the "times" hypothesis that white woman in a position that cannot attack. but white women are fundamentally at some level an

8:16 am
>> he was very annoyed. very. my source said just because it was fact really incorrect what was being stated. he felt the need first thing monday morning to set the record straight which is why he released a summary of his 2014 tax return which spelled out the facts and numbers and debunked any idea that he had taken a loss to not pay taxes. >> basically used the point that he had not used the carry-forward for his personal income taxes? >> correct. never has, in the 73 years he's been filing taxes. >> but the type of deduction that donald trump is being criticized for is called a net loss-carry forward. it's had bipartisan support in the past and many businesses and personal people you know, correct? >> totally legal. again, we don't know how many people have used it in this way.
8:17 am
so that is true. it's very simple. he took a big loss. and the loss says that you can use that loss to offset future income. so it's a very simple math. >> mellody, just a minute on that, why does that exist within the law? >> why does it exist? it basically goes back to tax code for a long, long time. it's basically a way for people to recoup losses they have had. >> for instance, someone who owns a lawn mowing company. if they had a year where there were floods and they lost all the money. then the next year they wouldn't have to pay taxes? >> as much in taxes, yet. >> we're getting very technical here, but that's true. lots of private companies where buffett is the ahead of a big public company where we have a lot more transparency. >> melody, here's something that's not so technical. warren buffett has called on
8:18 am
he said he can't do it under audit. >> yeah, he said he's under audit. he said you show me yours, i'll show you mine. we just need a very small section to understand his financial picture. his son has said he's not releasing returns because their 25,000 pages long. this is what we need, page one it would tell us income and any losses. page two, it would tell us how much he pays in taxing and we could compute his tax rate. section "a," it includes any charitable deductions. or any capital gains or losses he has had some asset sales. a building, stock. it's pretty simple. that's all we'd need. we'd have 80% to 90% of his financial picture just from that very limited amount of information. >> and mellody, he says that the financial disclosure forms he filed with the ftc covers that, is that true?
8:19 am
the tax return is specific. the financial filing talks in generalities and estimates. >> is warren buffett now saying, donald trump keep my name out of your conversation. >> basically, that's what he's says. >> thank you very much, mellody. a man in a red sweater stole the spotlight at sunday's presidential debate. next, audience member, kenneth bone, talks about his instant celebrity status. and the wardrobe malfunction that led to his choice of this outfit. that's going viral. you're watching "cbs this morning." this outfit. that's going viral. you're watching "cbs this morning." i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid.

8:45 am
best-selling author jodi picoult has never shied away from controversial topics and inspiration. some tackle subjects like cancer, sexual abuse and the holocaust. the newest novel called "small great things" takes on the issue of racism partly inspired by a 2012 discrimination lawsuit in michigan. back to the table. >> thank you. >> this book i thought was so interesting and so timely, i look at you, white woman of privilege, how do you write a book about racism? i thought you captured you said it was one of the hardest books you write because -- >> because racism is hard to talk about. we often choose not to talk about it at all. that in itself is a privilege.
8:46 am
i tried to write about race multiple times in my career and i failed because i couldn't come at it from an authentic point. it's not my story to tell, in many ways. it was this lawsuit that happened in michigan that really changed things for me. a nurse with 20 years of experience on a labor and delivery ward who delivered a baby. then the father called in his supervisor and said i don't want her or anyone like her to touch my kid. push up the sleeve and revealed a swastika tattoo. she ended up getting a payout after suing this man. what if this nurse was the only one alone with the child when something went wrong. what if, as a result of that, she ended up on trial with a white public defender who like me or my friends would never say i'm a racist. to tell the point of view so
8:47 am
power and racism and power. >> i looked and said jodi picoult is still white, right? >> i had women with over 1$100 hours they share their successes and fears and failures. they vetted the voice of ruth in my book. i couldn't have written the book written the book without them. it comes from a quote that is attributed to martin luther king jr., he said if i can not do great things, i can do small things in a greats way. racism is big and messy and systemic and institutional it's both perpetuated and extended in this act. in the novel, as these two women, the public defender and
8:48 am
relationship. >> considering all that went into this book and considering all that's happened in society, how do we have a meaningful conversation about race that does more than than has been done in the past? >> i think one of the most important things that i personally learned is that racism isn't just prejudice. it's also about power. although it's very easy for 20us see the headwinds of racism the way a certain skin color can impede success in society. the tailwinds of racism which is the way people who have lighting color skin get advantages from that. i think if this novel can do anything, hopefully, it can provide a vocabulary that is a springboard. we need to talk about racism. i will make mistakes. it's better to make mistakes and move forward. and understand that we all have it. all of pus. >> how did you capture the voice of the skinheads?
8:49 am
like you had to take a shower. he was quite a character. >> yeah. i actually met with two men who were former skinheads who taught me why they went into a life of hate and how they got out of a life of hate. who had made very significant changes in their life. one is married to a jewish woman. >> that's a change. that stands to reason that the >> and the book has a twist at the end. >> and bryan cranston did your tease. >> from here, it's all downhill. >> great way to start the day.
