7:35 am
identified? >> well, that, of course, is the ultimate question. we have to look, charlie, at what this motion really says as opposed to how it may have been reported in the news. the motion is looking for three things. the motion is looking for a gag order, and that's really what the defense lawyers are really mad about. what they say is they were sabotaged. now, what happened is the plaintiff's lawyer filed a complaint. they had not even gotten a copy of it. a media barrage. and what they want is to get the plaintiff's lawyer to stop talking. well, if they had just filed that motion it probably would have been successful. unfortunately, for the defense, they combined it with this idea of saying, look, we'll let you

7:37 am
>> it could be precedent-setting. the reason from could be precedent-setting here and cause a terrible chilling effect on women who are likely to come forward who are under age or who have been sexual assault victims is that this case is so infamous. the entire press corps that went there was not only national, it was international. so, we don't want women to feel, young or old, that they could not go forward in a civil because their names will be made public. however, they could have dealt with the thought of making her name public at trial a year or two years from now. the fact that they've done it now when they're at school. and school is supposed to be a place that nurtures their students, that's that's really why they have endured so much bad publicity here. >> do you think it's back firing more on the school? >> i think the backfiring now.

with someone who does have access to the nuclear code. >> joined some pretty exclusive company here in rio on monday. but she didn't do it quite the way she wanted. >> the reason it could be precedent setting here and cause a terrible chilling effect on women who would like to come forward is that this case is so infamous. >> the cost of the epipen is surging putting a cramp on families. >> "the wall street journal" called on donald trump to get serious or turn the nomination over to mike pence. >> there are some rumors that actually sound pretty serious about this and put pence in his place. >> i'll do it, okay. today, i'm out of work, so i'll do it. i'll do it. i'm down. i got the suit. i'm ready. i'll build a wall. i'll build one on canada. two walls. let's do it. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and margaret brennan.

8:03 am
i call it extreme vetting. >> trump's speech did not include specifics on combat or how u.s. troops would be involved. >> bob woodward is associate editor of "the washington post," he joins us now from washington. good morning. >> good morning. >> so assess his speech on foreign policy and isis for us. >> well, it's a hodgepodge. to trump's credit he's trying to seriously assess and come up wiom but if you step back after 9/11 terrorism has defined so much of the world's history, america's history, trump is trying to frame it somewhat as a border security problem, which it's not. it is an intelligence and military problem, which the obama administration really is
8:04 am
effective but not perfect way. >> yet bloomberg politics poll says that trump polls higher than she does on the question of who is best prepared to combat terrorism. >> well, you know, he sounds tough. and there is a tough component in all of this, but is the fact-checker, glenn kessler, at speech and there are a lot of things he said just are not true. and you can't take the isis problem, the islamic state problem and dump it all on obama and hillary clinton. it's got a long history going back to the bush administration. >> go ahead, margaret. >> well, we keep hearing about this idea of id loeological tes going back to a cold war type era screening. what does that mean? is the idea here terrorists
8:05 am
america? >> well, it's a good question. this notion of extreme vetting, i don't think it's practical at all. i mean, as you say, what would you do, stand there at the airports and have somebody say do you believe in the constitution, do you believe in american values? it just wouldn't work. and, again, it's a misfocus of >> it's been reported, bob, that congress is soon going to receive the notes from hillary clinton's e-mails. what should we be looking for there? >> you know, god knows. i mean, there are thousands of e-mails the fbi said that they uncovered that were not turned over. i mean, take anyone's e-mails, thousands of them. there could be something there. maybe not.
8:06 am
i guess it depends of course on what they find. but do you see this as being a serious issue? >> very serious issue. so many unanswered questions. you know, let's face it, hillary clinton just has not come totally clean on this. and she would serve herself well if she would do that. >> bob, why do you think she hasn't? >> habit of secrecy, the whole idea of the private server was so no and it's a very bad habit. you really -- i mean, i think people say if she became president, are we going to have some kind of transparency? is there going to be a culture of straight talk rather than a culture of concealment? >> she has not had many press conferences either. should the press be demanding more access?
8:07 am
press conferences. it should be -- she should certainly have them. but she should do serious interviews with serious people who really want to look at all of this. you can't do it on the fly. and she's trying to do it on the fly. and it is a giant mistake. look, the people -- the average voter is asking not just what but who they are. and who she is is her past. and she needs to kind of just sit down and say, look, on the e-mail thing i made a serious mistake. and kind of let it roll out. >> but on the other hand -- >> she said she made a mistake. >> right. on the other hand you have donald trump who has had many dealings with the press who's now blaming the press for some of his stumblings. he's not the first politician to blame the press for things --
8:08 am
effective for him? >> well, i mean, i want to hear more answers from him about what he might do as president. i mean, somebody was saying to hillary clinton said she made a mistake. she did, but it's a kind of like, you know, i slipped when i was coming off the stage. this is a serious issue. these thousands of e-mails that we don't know about, what do they have? you know, people are going to want to see. and as you get closer to the october surprise era. >> yeah. >> something could come out that could get -- be significant or get overblown. >> like tax returns. thank you, bob. >> bob, thank you. good deep dive on iraq there and her record there in "the washington post," bob's paper. meanwhile, historic flooding in louisiana has claimed more than seven lives. more than 11,000 people are staying in shelters this morning.

8:33 am
he's back to discuss this new memorial. this is probably one of the taboo subjects that nobody wants to discuss. then to say let's put it in e memorial, what's your thinking here? >> i don't think we have done a good job of recognizing this history. i think we have been compromised by that. . when you go to south africa, you are confronted with apartheid. in rwanda they make sure they understand what genocide did. germany you can't go many places without e seeing the stones that have been placed at the homes of jewish families that were abducted during the holocaust. the germans want you go to auschwitz to confront that legacy. this country -- >> why is this so difficult? >> it's important because when you do that, you change your identity. you change your relationship to these histories of mass atrocity and violence. when you don't do that, things linger. the small created by the history
8:34 am
to compromise our health. in this country, we haven't done that about slavery or lynching. there's no place where you can go and have an honest experience with history. >> do you think it's because it's too painful. >> it's because we have created a narrative of denial. we created a narrative that says we're not going to talk about the mistakes we make. we do the olympics great. we do success great. we do pride great. but we don't do mistake very well in this we don't do error very well. we have become a punitive society. e we think if we own up to our mistakes, something bad is going to happen. i'm not doing these projects because i want to punish america. i want us to be liberated from the chains that this history has created. and it would be different if we didn't want to talk about the past. that's not our dynamic here. in the south, the landscape is littered with the confederacy.
8:35 am
history. in montgomery there are 59 markers to the confederacy. the two largest high schools are jefferson davis high. confederate days a state holiday. it's martin luther king day. we are preoccupied with the history, but we won't talk about slavery. and that creates a problem. so this project is aimed at trying to change that. we have to resurrect this history and talk about the challenges created by slave. we h challenges created by lynching. people don't understand that was terrorism. we menaced and traumatized millions of african-americans in this country. at the beginning of the 20th century, the black population lived in the south. they fled by the millions. the black people in milwaukee and chicago and new york and los angeles didn't come to those communities as immigrants looking for economic opportunities. they came as refugees and
8:36 am
history, we're not going to understand the challenges that have been created and so we want to give name to this history. we want to name the victims of lynching. we want to talk about people like elizabeth lawrence who was lynched because she scolded children for throwing stones at her. we want to talk about people who were bumped accidentally into white people. we want to talk about all of the devastation and the fact these lynchings took place in the square with thousands of people cheering them >> 1877 and 1950. there's continued violence, obviously, until this very day. there was a hanging. e we make a distinction. it's the acts of violence done with complete impunity where there was no risk of it. 1877 is and 1950, by the 1940s and '50s we started moving lynchings indoors.
8:37 am
>> we have to recognize what is the legacy of slavery in america and only then can we begin to appreciate racial violence in 2016. >> that's exactly right. until we own up to this history, we're going to be compromised by an identity that doesn't allow us to talk freely about these problems. >> thank you for coming. >> you're very welcome. >> good to see you. fascinating work. you can read about his new museum in the new yorker. first on bone appetite's hot ten new restaurants and the 6,000 mile journey to find them. >> so far today i have had a biscuit with country ham, corn dog, fried chicken and hot dog, grilled tongue, and i still have two more dinners. >> next we take youleft from th. ................. thankfully, the winds calmed

8:42 am
journey. >> the hot ten is my list that appears in bon bonn appetite. there's no secret formula. it's a subjective list and i want people to argue, but at the end of the day shs the list is something that i can defend compassionately defend. the way i find the place l i go to is just like any newspaper reporter. you have sources in each city. they can't tell me where to go or not to go, but if i hear mixed reviews, i pop in and check it out for myself. that's why i don't do this job for new york. toif go to the cities and try it for myself. otherwise i could read whatever and fake it.
8:43 am
sometimes this job takes its toll. there's times i'm sitting in the hotel room just kind of with my hands in my head like what am i doing? i'm just like my stomach is on fire. >> so far today i have had a biscuit with country ham. >> i know i have to go to another place. >> four pieces of pizza with sausage. >> you go from being hungry to i >> grilled tongue. i did have a a salad. >> that's what i feel like every single day and every single m meal. >> i still have two more dinners. >> in my line of work, such and such a chef who already has two restaurants is opening another place. i want to find those ones that are mom and pop or run by some
8:44 am
i want to prop them up. it can really make or break a restaurant. that means a lot. that's why i take my job so seriously. that's why i eat serve meals in a day because i don't want to miss something. >> here's what all that research led to. coming in at number three on the hot ten list is lord stanley in san francisco. second place goes to bad saint in washington, d.c. and the winner, staple house in atlanta. andrew is here. >> again. >> i'm so excited about washington, d.c. being your stand out city. first of all, that surprises a lot of people. secondly, i live there. >> i grew up there. i'm like, d.c.? seriously? >> this was not the case. that was about it. >> what's the new renaissance there? >> when you go to these cities, it's something that's palpable
8:45 am
on in d.c. that i didn't see within the other city. really neighborhood restaurants and colombia heights where bad saint is. so it's this energy that you saw in san francisco a few years ago and we have in new york. but d.c. unexpected. >> it's cool now. you put a phil pea know restaurant in the number two spot. >> that's the washington, d.c. place. it's not -- you're not going to understand philippine food. it's three friends interpretation of the food that they grew up with and making it new for a whole new audience. it's an introduction. i think it's exciting to discover new cuisines that challenge you. that's the point of eating out. >> i was excited that a barbecue place in north carolina made the list. barbecue has never made the list before. >> this fried chicken on this
8:46 am
>> everyone loves barbecue. for some reason it's always not considered a real restaurant. it's not a restaurant. but why is this one? >> the chef there is not using commodity pork. he's used heritage raised pork. and whole hog smokes it overnight, they work the graveyard shift. the funny thing about buckston hall is the barbecue might not be the best thing. it might be the fried chicken sandwich, which we also gave best fried chicken of the yea and it's all these restaurants on our list have community involved. . they feel like you're going into some of these dining room and a family. there's a lot of bad news out there right now. all these restaurants for us were kind of escapism, going into a whole new world for an hour and a half where you felt a part of a scene. >> is fried chicken bad? >> fried chicken sandwich, we didn't do best burger. the fried chicken sandwich is the new burger.
8:47 am
