"the wall street journal" reports his son-in-law jared kushner is being considered for a top level white house role and sources tell cbs news mr. trump is now offering key administration positions to some candidates. chip reid is watching the transition for us. good morning. >> good morning. president-elect trump's transition team is on a
conference call with reporters announcing their plan to institute a lobbying ban on any person who is part of the transition, or the new administration. which could pose a problem for some of the people going in and out of trump tower. the elevators of trump tower were kept busy as a stream of transition members, possible administration picks, and well wishers went up and down greeting president-elect donald trump. today he plans to meet with a group that includes former se kissinger, governor nikki haley and the current director of the nsa. cbs news has also learned that trump has five front-runners for key positions in the trump white house. former director of the defense intelligence agency mike flynn is the favorite for national security adviser. flynn was loyal to trump throughout the campaign, and claims that he was fired from his former post at the d.i.a. for strong views against radical islam. senator jeff sessions of alabama, a senior member of the
believed to be a favorite for attorney general. in a nod to his influence, sessions was the only nonfamily, noncampaign member in an hour-long meeting yesterday on supreme court nominees. >> you don't form a federal government overnight. >> reporter: the trump transition team continues to push back on stories of inner turmoil. >> president obama even didn't have his entire cabinet formed within the first week and we're going to make sure we get it right. >> reporter: in fact, president obama waited 20 days, making his first announcement on november december. trump is only on day eight of the transition. >> very, very well. >> reporter: vice president biden defended the incoming administration while welcoming mike pence to his future home. >> no administration is ready on day one. we weren't ready on day one. i've never met one that's ever been ready on day one. but i'm confident on day one everything will be in good hands. >> reporter: and vice president-elect pence continues his outreach here in washington
for meetings with republicans, including senate majority leader mitch mcconnell, and speaker of the house paul ryan. >> chip, thanks. kellyanne conway is a senior adviser to the trump transition team. she was campaign manager for the president-elect, and we're pleased to have you here. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> so i'm reading the papers this morning, a personal question. i see the name of kushner and bannon and sessions, and priebus and ryan and mcconnell, and pence, and the family. what is it that you might be doing in this new >> i appreciate you asking me. i just want to go from my highest and best use to serve president-elect. trump and vice president-elect pence, two men i admire greatly -- >> you have a special relationship. you came in at an important moment in the campaign. >> i have a special relationship with both of them and i'm thrilled that they'll be leading this country charlie. i am still sorting that out. i have four small children. i'm sure many of you can relate to that. i need to balance the personal considerations with the professional ones.
since he was elected. and i love the hive of activity that is trump tower and the transition down in washington where i was also this week. >> have you been asked to serve a role? >> i have. i was asked immediately what i would like to do. >> let me turn now to some of the business leaders who will be there and be coming including heads of state. the japanese prime minister. as you well know, the candidate said during the campaign that he might want to reconsider and have japan consider how much it is willing to prepare and to pay for its own defense. that today. i think it's a much more informal meeting than all of that. since we have a current president and commander in chief and president obama is still the president. so, we're sensitive to the fact that these early meetings with heads of state occur within that construct, that fact, charlie. but at the same time, we're very happy prime minister abe will be there to meet with president-elect trump and vice president-elect pence today. but, you know, president obama is on his last foreign trip in that capacity.
relationship between japan and the united states will have to wait until after the inauguration. >> the front page of "the wall street journal" is reporting that jared kushner will likely get a top white house post. what does he want to do? >> i spoke with jared last night and again this morning, actually. he has not put out a national security plan, he has not applied for any job. but he obviously is incredibly important to his father-in-law, president-elect trump, and was a big, big part of our election victory, frankly. jared has been intimately involved with campaign strategy from day one. and i'm sure that he and his wife and her brothers will continue to be very supportive. but time will tell in terms of the positions of different people. >> traditionally the president announces his national security staff first. but, south carolina governor nikki haley is heading to trump tower today. her lieutenant governor told local reporters that she is under considerations to be secretary of state. is she on the short list? >> well, we have long short lists at trump tower in terms of
on the list, norah, and some people would surprise you, the unexpected. but this is what president-elect trump is doing every day. meeting with advisers, having interviews with potential candidates for each of these positions. it's serious business. and i took a look yesterday at the time lines from past administrations, and we're basically right on target with respect to where other presidential administrations in formation have been, including president obama's. and i very much appreciated what vice president biden said yesterday after his meeting with vice president-elect pence. he basically obama' world did not have our administration formed in week one and they don't either. it would probably be irresponsible to go ahead and name all the people right at once. we're very happy that governor haley is coming to meet with president-elect trump. i'm sure they'll have a broad, wide ranging conversation and i think everybody shut be very heartened at the number of people who have come forward expressing interest in high level positions. >> does this mean that the president-elect is seeking out
raised during the campaign and he wants to make sure that when people in the administration -- >> the major qualification is can she do the job? major criteria is are you qualified to do this job. and then i think secondly, charlie, is do you support what president-elect trump has put forward as his first 100 day plan. it's very specific. it's out there for all to see. and any of these individuals who serve in his cabinet on the senior staff should be well aware that this is a man who intends to get things done he delivers, he produces. the excuse of divided government that has existed for probably six years, having two parties in power in washington, d.c., that's gone now. you have one party in power. and i think as the yoke is uplifted in terms of you can actually execute, deliver and produce. but it also takes away the excuse that i may many have been using in washington, d.c., to not get things done. >> is rudy giuliani, he's been very vocal about his desire to be secretary of state.
any number of positions. he's incredibly loyal to donald trump. he was very important during the campaign. >> are you concerned about his business connections that have been raised? >> no -- no, i'm not. and i understand that people want to vet things publicly. but again we have a process that should be respected. and gayle, i just can't help but feel whether it's the protesters, or whether it's some of the unfortunate and frankly inaccurate headlines about some of the senior team and would-be cabinet members floating through the press -- >> what is steve bannon head line? >> pretty much everything. the man is brilliant, and he treats everyone kindly and the same, and i think people are cherry picking some headlines, and maybe even some projects that he was not -- he was not involved with. he has the ear and the trust of the president-elect. and rudy giuliani would be -- if he was our secretary of state, he would command a certain presence worldwide. but i think he's qualified for many different positions. >> thank you for being here.
me. hillary clinton spoke in washington last night. one week after conceding the presidential election. she received a very warm reception from supporters of the children's defense fund. the nonprofit advocacy group where she worked as a young lawyer. clinton told the crowd not to lose heart and to believe in the country and its path forward. nancy cordes looks at clinton's first extended remarks since her concession speech. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. clinton made a commitment before the election to deliver this speech, and s keep her promise. the remarks at times were very personal. her former boss called her the people's president, and then clinton shed some light on what the last week has been like for her. clinton was greeted with a standing ovation. and a kiss on the cheek from marianne wright edelman the woman who hired clinton right out of yale law school in the 1970s. >> i will admit coming here tonight wasn't the easiest thing for me.
past week when all i wanted to do is just to curl up with a good book or our dogs and never leave the house again. i know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election. i am too. more than i can ever express. >> reporter: she's been largely out of sight since her return to private life, except for this photo, captured during a hike in the woods near her chappaqua, new york, home last week. >> i urge you, please, don't lose heart. don't give up on the values we share. >> reporter: democrats are trying to figure out how to promote those values now that republicans will control both the white house, and congress. the new senate minority leader, new york's chuck schumer, created new leadership roles for vermont's bernie sanders, and wisconsin's tammy baldwin as the party tries to reach out to both progressives, and midwesterners. clinton acknowledged that the base is still reeling. >> i know that over the past
themselves, whether america is the country we thought it was. the divisions laid bare by this election run deep. but please, listen to me when i say this, america is worth it. >> reporter: clinton spoke for about 20 minutes. and she didn't give any hints about what might come next for her. though she did say that she wishes she could go back in time and tell her mother that her daughter would go on to win the majority of votes, a million of them, in the race for president. >> nancy, thanks. an investigation this morning is trying to determine the cause of a deadly gas explosion in central, illinois. the massive blast rocked downtown canton, and heavily damaged several buildings. one person was killed, and 11 others were hurt. don dahler is in canton where the explosion was felt across a wide area. don, good morning. >> good morning. . there used to be a building near
now there's just a pile of rubble and debris and glass scattered around the streets through this whole area. there were 17 local agencies that took part in the rescue operation. but residents here say even though there was one person dead, could have been far worse. there used to be a building right there, guys. >> reporter: video captured shortly after the blast shows just how powerful the explosion really was. >> i'd say this was pretty damn serious. there's where the building used to be. >> reporter: officials say a apart this building, killing one man. reports say he was a utility worker investigating a leak. 11 others were injured. >> there was just glass and stuff blown everywhere. just scared me. >> reporter: debris from damaged buildings littered the streets while emergency workers scrambled to help any off the injured. this surveillance video taken from inside a nearby local business, displayed the strength of the explosion.
came crashing down at one time. >> reporter: overnight, community members wasted no time picking up the pieces, boarding up broken windows and cleaning up affected businesses. jeff hawk owns a local shop in downtown canton that was also devastated by the blast. >> there's been reports that the people have felt all the way on the other side of the lake, which is like five miles from the downtown away. >> reporter: city officials moved quickly to shut down all of the gas lines throughout the area. they've now brought in a team of structural engineers to take a look at all these other buildings around here to make sure they weren't compromised, as well. >> all right, don, thank you so much. a minnesota police officer set to appear in court tomorrow for the deadly shooting of a black man during a traffic spot. police officer jeronimo yanez was charged yesterday with
philando castile in july. castile's girlfriend live streamed the aftermath on facebook. jamie yuccas is in st. paul. >> good morning not only does officer yanez face a charge of manslaughter he faces two counts of intentional discharge of a dangerous weapon. prosecutors say the entire incident was caught on dash cam video but they're not releasing that tape because this is an ongoing investigation. >> oh, my god, please don't tell me he's dead. >> reporter: diamond reynolds and her 4-year-old daughter were passengers in philando castile's car when he was pulled over by police. >> i saw my best friend, my confidant, take his last breath for no reason. >> reporter: ramsey county prosecutor john choi says police dash cam video shows philando castile was shot seven times, by officer jeronimo yanez within 60
officer yanez was not jufd. >> reporter: belted into his seat, castile had first provided his insurance card to officer yanez. >> castile then calmly informed officer yanez, sir, i have to tell you that i do have a firearm on me. >> reporter: according to the criminal complaint, officer yanez responded, okay. but then pulled his own gun, and reached inside the driver's side out. castile responded, i'm not pulling it out. moments later, officer yanez started firing. >> i told him to get his hands up. >> no reasonable officer would have used deadly force under these circumstances. >> reporter: minnesota's police and peace officer's association says the police community is disappointed in the charges. to which yanez is expected to plead not guilty.
>> god wants us all to forgive. definitely. i can forgive anyone. but will i forget? will i not be hurting? absolutely not. i'm always going to hurt. >> castile did have a permit to carry his handgun. and minnesota is an open carry state. there have been 150 police involved deaths in minnesota since the year 2000. officer yanez is the first officer to be charged. he could face 20 years in prison. >> all right, jamie. that video is still so tough to see. thank you very much. did fake news influence the outcome of the presidential election ahead the new report showing how many people were fooled, during this cawinds wil day... and that will make these cooler temps feeling even cooler. ........... temps are in the 40s and low 50s... but winds chills feel like the 30s when those north winds are up around 15 to 20 mph. ........... nice sunshine will stay with us,

welcome back to "cbs this morning.? coming up in this half hour, jon stewart. remember him? yeah, you do. he is keeping a close eye on politics after the election. the former "daily show" host has some critical comments, but he tells charlie repeat, not giving up on the united states of america. plus, your right to be suspicious about some articles posted on facebook. a new report looks at how many americans were hooked by fake news during the election. ahead, why social networks face challenges fixing the problem. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. "the new york times" reports a tax by russian and syrian war planes on rebel-held areas of syria are intensifying.
medical facilities and hospitals have been bombed in the past 48 hours. aleppo's main blood bank was hit. attacks killed more than 50 people in rebel-held areas of northern syria. "the dallas morning news" reports on the discovery of the largest continuous oil field in the united states. geologists conducted a new assessment of the wolf camp shale in west texas and contains 20 billion barrels of oil and worth 900il current prices. >> ow is right. >> geologist ons, it says. >> the new jersey star ledger reports that the engineer in the deadly train cash in hoboken had undiagnosed sleep apnea. the commuter train slammed into a station in september killing a woman. the engineer was diagnosed with sleep apnea after the crash. the union representative did not
his family. the whistle-blower tyler schultz is a grandson of a theranos official. they rarely see or speak each other now. tyler schultz and his parents it's cost them more than 400,000. the blood company lab has shut its doors and is now under investigation. much of the presidential campaign went on without jon stewart's satirical point of view. i to discuss about the more than 16 years he spent at the comedy central program. he was quick to give his post-election analysis. we just went through an election. >> what? >> reporter: yes! your reaction to this election? >> uh. >> reporter: surprise? >> surprise? surprise? it all ties together. >> reporter: fear? >> well, fear, you know, here is
i don't believe we are a fundamentally different country today than we were two weeks ago. the same country with all its grace and flaws and volatility and strength and resilience exists today as existed two weeks ago. the same country that elected donald trump, elected barack obama. i feel whom this election will mean more uncertainty and insecurity. but i also feel like this fight has never been easy. the ultimate irony of this election is the cynical strategy of the republicans which is our position is government doesn't work. we are going to make sure that it doesn't but they are not
are the swamp and what they decided to do was i'm going to make sure government doesn't work and then i'm going to use its lack of working as evidence of it. donald trump is a reaction not just to democrats, but to republicans. he's not a republican. he's a repudiation of republicans but they will reap the benefit of his victory in all of their sinnicynicism. i guarantee you people are coming to jesus a of government. one of the things that struck me odd about this election and maybe i missed it, but nobody asked donald trump what makes america great. and that was the part that i -- >> reporter: he wants to make america great again but nobody said to him what is it that makes america great? >> correct. >> reporter: what is it you want to do that we are not doing now? >> what are the metrics? because it seems like, from listening to him, the metrics are that it's a competition and
what makes us great is america is a homily in the world. there are a lot of people, and i think his candidacy has animated that thought that a multiethnic democracy, a multicultural democracy is impossible. and that is what america, by its founding and constitutionally is. >> reporter: and become more and more, year by year. >> correct, correct. >> reporter: but do you think it's healthy that we havehi now, that, in fact, this real sense of finding out who we are and whether we have gone off track in some way? >> absolute. you know, i think you -- i would rather have this conversation openly and honestly than in dog years. somebody say there might be an anti-semite working in the white house and have you listened to the nixon tapes? forgot about advising the president. the president.
do you know our history? you know? this is -- and we also have to caution ourselves to the complexity of that history. i thought donald trump disqualified himself at numerous points, but there is now this idea that anyone who voted for him is -- has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric. like there are guys in my neighborhood that i love, that i respect, that i think have incredible qualities who are not afraid of mexicans and not afraid of muslims and not afraid they are afraid of their insurance premiums. in the liberal community you hate this idea of creating people as a mondomonolith. they are individuals and it would be ignorance. but everybody who voted for trump is a monolith, is a racist. that hypocrisy is real in our country. this is the fight we wage against ourselves and each other. america is not natural.
thousands of years of human behavior and history to create something that no one has ever -- that is what is exceptional about america and that is what is -- like, this ain't easy. it's an incredible thing. >> incredible thing. it's so nice to hear from him, charlie, about this. >> he is very reflective about the country and the election. he does not miss being at comedy central but has a lot to say and you know how much his voice was missed when you heard him. >> yes. >> i like it. >> very interesting points. >> i like how he, rather than dismissing trump or those who voted for him, tried to explain and understand why they voted for him and not -- don't paint them as a monolith. >> about all of the things the people are talking about in terms of muslims and that, they are worried about insurance premiums. >> shows you how people jump to conclusions and jon stewart is basically saying, calm down. everybody think. america is going to be okay. >> he is fatiscinating but he ao talks about "the daily show" and
>> did you say he doesn't miss it? >> i believe he has moved to another state. >> i do too. >> we will bring you more of our conversation with jon stewart and author chris smith next week. their new become reveals the behind the scenes history of "the daily show" with jon stewart at the helm. some of the popular news on facebook never really happened. ahead the numbers that show millions of americans were fooled by fake stories in the last weeks of the campaign! subscribe to our "cbs this morning" podcast and get extended interviews and news of the day and podcast originals and find them all on itunes and apples podcast app. we will be right back. ?

site. but at a tech conference last week, facebook ceo mark zuckerb zuckerberg dismissed the issue. >> i think the idea that in a fake news on facebook influenced the flex in any way is a pretty crazy idea. >> reporter: a few days later in a post he acknowledgeded that facebook has begun to look into ways for the online community to flag hoaxes and fake news. st p and google could face legal hurdles in addressing the problem. >> there is legislation in this country that says if you are a platform, you are not liable for what people publish on you. however, if you start to edit what people publish on your platform then your local obligations increase. >> reporter: experts say it's difficult to filter out fake news in real-time but facebook and google have each announced new plans to prevent fake stories from spreading by

the most common side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump warmth or bruising at the injection site and headache. it's important to talk to your doctor about what situations you may need to avoid since zostavax contains a weakened chickenpox virus. remember one in three people get shingles in their lifetime, . will it be you? talk you to your doctor or pharmacist about me, single shot zostavax. you've got a shot against shingles. thinning of the teeth and leading to being extremely yellow. would probably gross me out! my dentist recommended pronamel. it can help protect enamel from acid erosion. pronamel is all about your enamel. ? so basically we have two production options... hey guys, i gotta call you back.
