presidential election just was not the same without jon stewart. he left "the daily show" last summer, just as the campaign was heating up. turns out he spent the past few months writing a book about his 16 years on comedy central. charlie rose sat down with him >> we just went through an election. >> what? >> yes. your reaction to this election? surprised? >> surprised -- >> fear? >> it all ties together. well, fear. you know, here's what i would honestly say. i don't believe we are a fundamentally different country today than we were two weeks ago.
grace and flaws and volatility and insecurity and strength and resilience exists today as existed two weeks ago. the same country that elected donald trump elected barack obama. i feel badly for the people for whom this election will mean more uncertainty and insecurity. but i also feel like this fight has never been easy and 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 -- >> drain the swamp. >> but they're not draining the swamp. mcconnell and ryan, those guys are the swamp. and what they decided to do was i'm going to make sure government doesn't work and then
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 cynicism and all of their -- i will guarantee you republicans are going to come to jesus now about the power of government. i think i would rather have this conversation openly and honestly than in dog whistles. somebody was saying there might be an anti-semite that's working in the white house. and i'm like have you listened to the nixon tapes? forget about advising the president. the president. like have you read lbj? 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.
neighborhood like 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 of blacks, they're afraid of their insurance premiums. in the legal community you hate this idea of creating people as a monolith. don't look at muslims as a monolith. they are individuals. it would be ignorance. but everybodo trump is a monolith, is a racist. that hypocrisy is also real in our country. and so this is the fight that we wage against ourselves and each other because america's not natural. natural is tribal. we're fighting against thousands of years of human behavior and history to create something that no one's ever -- that's what's exceptional about america, and that's what's -- like this ain't easy. it's an incredible thing. >> well, words of wisdom from jon stewart.

? and heaven knows ? >> it might not be everybody's cup of tea, the smiths, which i understand, and i'm actually quite okay with. it was unique and it was well played. >> mm-hmm. why are you okay with it not being some people's cup of tea? >> because then you just turn into kind of one of those vanilla bands then. >> and you don't want to be -- >> not really, no. it's nice to be one of those bands that polarize opinion. you know, all my favorite bands, you kind of love them or hate them. >> reporter: but by 1986 marr began to hate the drama in his own band. he was drinking heavily. then came the crash. literally. >> i got out of the car and had to check that i was alive. >> did it clear your head in some way? >> the car crash cleared my head massively because before that i was staying up late, drinking too much, doing drugs.
yeah. ? i know it's over ? >> reporter: a year later he quit the smiths and the group disbanded. was that painful? >> yeah, it was really painful. it was super painful. >> reporter: but marr moved on, playing with the pretenders, the the, and with new order's bernard sumner in electronic. ? i love you more than you love me ? >> i got to get partners who were really strong mentally. and had a strong enough sense of thse that they were harboring a smith. which was -- >> reporter: harboring a smith. that's a great expression. >> in the british music press it was tantamount to treason. >> reporter: marr scored his first number one album in america in 2007. ? when he joined the band modest mouse. but fans still root for a reunion of the smiths.
assume you've been offered gazillions of dollars to get back together and they can't believe you won't take it. >> we have been offered gazillions of dollars to get back together. >> reporter: and nearly did. marr writes in his book that he reunited with morrissey at a pub in 2008 and then "suddenly we were talking about the band reforming." but after a few days there was radio silence. >> i was just enjoying having a kind of catch-up with someone i used to be really clos a long time. >> reporter: you don't think it's going to happen? >>, i don't think it's going to happen, no. >> reporter: johnny marr may have jumped between bands throughout his career but one thing has remained constant, his partnership with his wife angie. you've been with angie since you were -- >> 15. >> reporter: how have you done that? >> yeah. it's the smartest thing -- see, the one real evidence of intelligence. yeah, very, very unusual and

his neverending tour. in a rare interview in 2004 he told "60 minutes" correspondent ed bradley why. >> it goes back to the destiny thing. i made a bargain with it, you know, a long time ago and i'm holding up my end. >> what was your bargain? >> to get where i am now. >> he told ed bradley that he knew that destiny was looking right at him. >> he says that in his book, destiny was looking right at him and nobody else. ? young ? >> reporter: vladimir duthier, new york. ? forever young ? ? may you stay ? and that's the overnight news for this friday. for some of you the news continues and for others we hope you'll check back with us a little later for the morning news and of course "cbs this

>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." good evening. scott is off. i'm john dickerson. this is our overnight edition. america has an addiction problem. and in the first report of its kind surgeon general vivek murthy called for a major shift in the way we treat this. his report says nearly 21 million suffer from substance abuse. it affects more americans than cancer. yet 90% are not getting treatment. the economic impact is more tha $440 billion. cbs news medical correspondent dr. tara narula joins us now. tara, do we really know how to define addiction? >> the report does a great job of telling us this is a spectrum that ranges from substance misuse all the way to the more severe form of the disorder, addiction. it's a call to action for a public health crisis that affects individuals, families, society. the number of americans affected by substance use disorders is as many americans as affected by
cancer, and yet we accept a treatment rate of 10% for those diseases? probably not. the hope is that this will catalyze change as did the surgeon general report in the 1960s when it came to tobacco. >> so tara, where do we go from here if this is to be treated as a disease? >> one of the best things this report did is tell us that we need to change our attitude about substance misuse and addiction. we need to have understanding and compassion that this is not a moral failure, this is not a character flaw, not something to be ashamed of. this is something that is a chronic disease of the brain and we need to treat it like a chronic condition. the faces of this disease, our family members, our colleagues, these people need to feel comfortable coming forward and telling us that they need help. and he with need to approach this with a public health approach like we would treat any other chronic condition, which means mobilizing doctors, policy makers, educators, parents to really have a multifaceted attack. and the idea is that hopefully with that we understand the science, we know that prevention and treatment work, that recovery is possible, that we
>> dr. tara narula. thanks, tara. one photo that's seared into our memories showed two family members in ohio overdosed in their car with a 4-year-old in the back seat. don dahler has more on this epidemic of opioid abuse. >> hey, girl, what's up? >> reporter: 20-year-old nick ryan's heroin high was captured on his mother's cell phone. she videotaped nick and his father, tim ryan, during a drug binge hoping when she to them later it would shock them into getting help. his father is now in recovery, but nick died from an overdose two years ago. tim can never forgive himself. >> all that lady wanted was a good husband, some kids, and i took all that away. and then i set the path for my son. >> reporter: the chicago area saw more than 600 opioid-related deaths last year, with ems crews responding to nearly 3,000 overdose calls.
average of 14 cases a day. e.r. doctor steven aks. >> for me when i learned that overdose deaths exceeded car accident deaths, i mean, to me that was shocking. >> reporter: this epidemic knows no state boundaries, no age limits. it is color blind, and attracts men and women with equality. this is a 2-year-old in lawrence, massachusetts trying to revive her overdosed mother in the aisle of a store. anti-overdose drugs like narcan have become a lifeline. in 2011, 4,600 prescriptions were given out. so far this year more than 87,000. and with heroin being laced with powerful painkillers, it often takes multiple doses to save lives. >> i think that the average viewer may not understand that it's completely out of the control of the individual once they're in it, and that they really need significant help.
see three times the national average of overdose victims. but john, some communities are beginning to focus on treatment. just last year illinois passed a law that requires medicaid and private insurers to cover substance abuse like they cover other medical conditions. >> don dahler. thank you, don. now to the transition. top officials in the obama administration are beginning to make way for the trump team. today we learned the director of clapper, submitted his resignation effective at the end of mr. obama's term. as for the incoming administration, it is becoming clear that president-elect trump intends to lean heavily on his son-in-law, jared kushner. but can he give kushner a white house job? anna werner takes a look. >> reporter: is it nepotism, favoring his relatives, if the president-elect employs his son-in-law in his
appointments suggests it is, but house speaker paul ryan said today he doesn't know. >> he's obviously a brilliant young man who donald trump trusts. so i'll leave it up to the trump transition team as to decide what role he plays. >> reporter: there are also concerns kushner might be given presidential daily briefings. in a letter yesterday to vice president-elect mike pence house democrat elijah cummings said, "if these reports are true, mr. trump's actions demonstrate an astonishingly cavalier attitude toward our nation's most sensitive secrets. >> jared is a very successful real estate person but i actually think he likes politics more than he likes real estate. i'm excited. >> reporter: much of the country knows little about the 35-year-old harvard graduate other than that he's married to ivanka trump, seen with her here in an instagram video. >> i always tell ivanka don't worry about the things you can't
kushner was key to trump's winning campaign. "esquire" contributor vicky ward has covered kushner for over a decade. >> he really believed that his father-in-law had a message that resonated with middle america, and he also realized that all his social and professional friends didn't get it. >> reporter: and ward says a steadying influence on his father-in-law. >> he knows not to always take him literally. he knows how to handle him. i think that gives power. because it means that he can get through to his father-in-law when perhaps a lot of other people cannot. >> reporter: kushner was thrust into the spotlight at age 24 when his father, charles, was convicted some years back of illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering. john, the prosecutor was a young chris christie, who was ousted recently as trump's transition

trump tower, including south carolina governor nikki haley, who is rumored to be in the running for secretary of state despite once calling mr. trump an embarrassment. in fact, campaign sources have begun floating a number of former detractors for top roles including texas senator ted cruz and even former gop nominee mitt romney. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. >> reporter: whose low opinion of mr. trump during the campaign >> because i don't like romney. i don't like him. he thinks he's hot stuff. i hate people that think they're hot stuff and they're nothing. okay? nothing. >> reporter: cbs news has learned the two will sit down on saturday. trump loyalist and alabama senator jeff sessions. >> well, i think it's good that the president-elect is meeting with people like mr. romney. he's meeting with a lot of talented people. >> reporter: and it would be tough to fill the top ranks of government without tapping at
one trump ally took himself out of the running for a cabinet position today, scott. newt gingrich said he wants to be free to plan strategically at all levels of government. >> nancy cordes. thanks so much, nancy. tonight a new and sinister picture is emerging in the shooting deaths of three american soldiers this month in jordan. an important u.s. ally in the middle east. david martin is following this. >> reporter: as army sergeant james moriarty's body came home, the incident in which he and two other american soldiers were killed appears to show a deliberate terrorist attack, not as was first believed a tragic accident. the three soldiers were all green berets working for the cia in jordan, training syrian rebels. u.s. officials say security camera video shows several american vehicles stopped in broad daylight at the entrance to the jordanian airfield where the green berets were based.
through the gate, but then a guard suddenly opened fire on the second vehicle, killing both americans inside. the americans in the third and fourth vehicles jumped out and started returning fire. the jordanian guard shot and killed one of them before he was wounded by the other. jordanian officials originally blamed the americans for failing to stop at gate. but the u.s. embassy in jordan said in a statement, "there is absolutely no credible evidence they did not follow proper procedures." the fbi is leadihe investigation, but so far has been unable to question the shooter because he is in a medically induced coma. john? >> david martin at the pentagon. thank you, david. in morocco today nearly 200 countries reaffirmed their support for the global climate agreement reached in paris last year. many are worried president-elect trump will pull out of the deal. further south in africa climate change is taking a toll own dajd
mark phillips has more in his ongoing series "the climate diaries." >> reporter: there's a population up there on the slopes of these volcanic peaks in central africa that knows nothing of arguments in washington about climate change. but the famous gorillas in the mist do know something is going on. they know the bamboo chutes that make up a major part of their diet and which used to sprout like clockwork are now less predictable. the rains that were a month late this year. the gorillas have had to adapt their roaming and foraging path patterns because the old seasonal rhythms of food production have altered. their world is changing. these guys are the 800-pound gorillas in the room except of course they really weigh in at about 400 pounds and they're not in control of event, they're the potential victims of them.
