snarl bear international barriers that much and more on "cbs this morning saturday" saturday, july 20th, 2013. captioning funded by cbs hello, everyone. welcome to "cbs this morning saturday." lots of news. in addition we've got great tips for you. >> one of the world's most influential and creative chefs is here. here's how he went from jewelry design tore running one of the most famous kitchens in the country. and here with songs from the latest album "heartthrob." but we begin with a remarkable moment at the white house, having waited nearly a week after the shooting death of george zimmerman and trayvon martin, president obama speaks out. jeff pegues has more. >> reporter: good morning, vinita. it was one of those occasions where the president weighs on
5:02 am
race one of the topics he's been criticized about not talking about enough. >> trayvon martin could have been me 35 years ago. >> reporter: in a surprise appearance in the white house briefing room, nearly a week after a jury found george zimmerman not guilty, president obama weighed on the verdict. >> i think it's important to realize that america is looking at this as a set of experiences and history that doesn't go away. >> reporter: six jurors acquitted george zimmerman in the shooting death of trayvon martin. the verdict drew criticism from african-american leaders and prompted protests in some cities. >> there are very few african-american men who doesn't have the experience of being followed shopping in a department store. that includes me. there are very few african-american men who haven't had the experience of walking
5:03 am
across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. that happens to me, at least before i was a senator. >> reporter: while the president waited to tackle the issue of race attorney general eric holder didn't hold back. addressing the naacp on tuesday, he talked about how this issue hit close to home. >> trayvon's death last spring caused knee sit down to have a conversation with my own 15-year-old son. like my dad did with me. as a father who loves his son and who is more knowing in the ways of the world, i had to do this to protect my boy. >> reporter: in a statement on friday, trayvon's parents applauded the president. and said they were grateful he took the time to speak about their son. zimmerman's defense team also released a statement. quote, while we acknowledge the racial context of the case we hope that the president was not suggesting that this case fit the pattern of racial disparity. because we strongly contend it
5:04 am
does not. the president asked that the public respect the jury's decision but he as called for a closer investigation of the stand your ground laws. for a closer look at this significance, we're joined by douglas brinkley. he joins us from poughkeepsie new york. doug good morning to you. >> good morning. >> it's significant for a president to make remarks like this. could we call it historic? >> it certainly was historic. you have the first african-american president weighing in on a case that took part in florida. i think it elevated trayvon martin's story to the annals of history. in many ways this president has been a constant grief counselor. we flash back to newtown or tucson or aurora he always seems to be hand holding. at this particular moment he
5:05 am
used the term "black folk" he was speaking to the rest of america how it is seen in florida. >> this was a speech in that he got very personal and said this could have been me 35 years ago. there's some talk is he choosing sides? you're a historian, how will history remember the speech? >> well i think he split it down the middle in the sense that he kind of let the judge and the jury off the hook from getting any heat. i think the aim now is on the florida law, and, you know this notion that you can carry a weapon around like this and stand your ground. so you may see in the upcoming midterm elections, democrats of saying no more stand your ground laws. we've got to get rid of this. this is a pro of governor scott of florida. it's a product of right wing extremism. so this is a political statement at the very end of the line. it comes at you as a personal sentiment.
5:06 am
and barack obama had to comment on this. imagine what history would say if he did stay quiet. there was a drumbeat for him to come out. i think you will see larger numbers at the digital 100 going around america because it's not that presidential opinion >> talk about this to say that any other predecessor to talk about race in america doug people are waiting for him to to come forward, more so than say, president clinton or president bush even president reagan >> you know i spent a little time with president obama talking about history. and he wants to make sure that he does the right thing for the african-american community. meaning when he gets criticized by jesse jackson or somebody it stings particularly strongly for this president. but he's been able to keep about 85% of the african-american population. it's a group struggling in the economy. they're behind their man barack
5:07 am
obama because he knows how to talk to that community at the right moment. that speech was first and foremost i think aimed at keeps his base happy. look, this is a man speaking from the heart. he just really is bothered by trayvon martin. i think we have to feel it's emotional for all americans, particularly, for all americans, that verdict in florida. >> thank you for your comments. during his remark the president sha the nation shouldaid that we should evaluate the way we protect our neighborhoods. and now to the extreme and persistent heat wave in much of the eastern united states. and the storms now moving in behind it. for the past week millions of americans have sweltered under a blanket of heat and humidity all the way from the western great lakes to the northeast. >> it's really been unbearable. amtrak in fact had to slow some of its trains because heat expanded the rails threatening
5:08 am
the stability of the track. gushing fire hydrants provided the only relief available to overheated kids in chicago. and coney island the big apple, set a record for electricity usage as folks cranked up the a.c. but things may be changing. let's get more on the heat wave and what is coming in next in meteorologist jeff ghirardelli. jeff, it can only get better. >> you and millions of americans feeling some relief. and certainly more tomorrow. it's been oppressive heat wave. tomorrow, day seven of temperatures 90-plus and heat indices. feels like temperatures 100 to 115. one more day of oppressive heat from philadelphia, to boston to washington, d.c. where heat warnings are in effect. temperatures will exceed 90 degrees along that i-90
5:09 am
corridor. it's going to stay hot for the next few days in the plain states but look at the relief. some relief temperatures drop to get 80s. those will move to the northeast during the date tomorrow. speaking of moving to the east, the strong line of showers and thunderstorms moving into ohio and pennsylvania right now. that's going to cool it off later on today, but with the cool weather there is a threat of severe weather from columbus to new york city late in the day to boston. we're probably going to see strong gusty winds and the potential for hail. when all said and done tomorrow, instead of temperatures in the 100s, it will be near the 80s. >> jeff, thank you. thunderstorms hit las vegas friday creating flash flooding and trapping tourists inside of casinos. wildfires are burning across several western states this

5:12 am
they go in they give they go up, they drop. they land. they refuel. they go, they dip. >> most of it is accessible by aircraft. they're basically what's saving a lot of the areas and communities from just being inundated completely. >> the fire is still only 15% contained. and for now, the crews are holding the flames to a line that is just a couple miles outside of this mountain town. i can tell you, along with the cooler temperatures the problem is we could start to get the threat of isolated thunderstorms and with them erratic wednesdays which is certainly what firefighters are. mike vinita. one year ago today, shortly after midnight a gunman entered a packed movie theater in aurora and started shooting. in less than ten minutes, a dozen people were dead or dying and dozens more wounded.

5:14 am
>> your life and everybody's life connected to this tragedy has changed so dramatically. let's start at the beginning here. what brought you to colorado in the first place? it was kind of by chance that you ended up in this particular theater, right? >> that's right. i'm originally from connecticut. right next to newtown, actually. and i was in the middle of a cross country bike trip with my best friend. we were visiting someone we knew in aurora innocently decided to take her out to the movies. that's when our lives were turned upside down. > all three of you, the other people you were hit, you were all in this movie theater? >> just the friend we were visiting. thankfully the friend i was traveling with he was not hit. >> your life has so dramatically changed. in fact for you it's become empowering, hasn't it? >> oh absolutely. when i was recovering from my wounds, i started reading more. and learning more about gun violence.
5:15 am
and kind of the more i learned, you know, the fact that thousands of people every single year in this country, are murdered with guns. and that there are loopholes in our laws that allow guns to get in the hands of criminals. the more i learned about these horrifying facts, the more compelled i felt to get involved and seek it out, about gun violence and how we can butter prevent the sort of tragedies that i had to bear with other people. >> given what you've been through, it's easy to see how you've become an activist steven. i'm curious you mentioned that bike ride. what are the plans for that? will you be continuing it? >> we really hope so. our plans are up in the air. at the end of this summer, we really planned to. it was a life-changing experience all on its own. we met such amazing people. and really saw the best that our country had to offer, you know before we ended up seeing the worst our country has to offer in that theater. >> steven barton thanks for

5:17 am

5:20 am
that well, we're not going to verify people's income when they come to the exchanges? why? because they can't. >> you can, of course see all of bob schieffer's interview with speaker boehner on "face the nation." israel has agreed to a longstanding palestinian demand to denounce peace talks there. secretary of state kerry said friday that the two have laid its groundwork to resume talks as early as next week after a three-year stalemate. he said the deal to revise peace talks is not final and requires more diplomacy. well perhaps, you've been wondering why hasn't the royal baby arrived yet? i know you have. you have lots of company. the world media is wondering, too. one who is watching even more closely than most is royal commentator ryoya mika.

5:28 am

5:33 am
drawn as many as 40 people. >> i think people are concerned about crime in the city and want to do something about it. >> reporter: unlike c.o.p. gilmore's organization will not patrol the streets. he doesn't worry about any negative stigma about this group. >> neighborhood watch say proven very successful program. to really prevent crime in any city, you really need to get the community involved. and that's what neighborhood watch does. >> and in order for neighborhood watch groups to be considered official, the organizers must be in contact with the local police. the law enforcement says that collaboration is key to a successful program. major league baseball is preparing to suspend more than a dozen players, including some of the biggest names in the game over performance-enhancing drugs. former mvp alex rodriguez of the new york yanks and ryan braun. good morning, sean.
