7:03 am
oh yeah. welcome to "cbs this morning." presidential candidate mike huckabee is refusing to apologize for using a holocaust reference to criticize the nuclear deal with iran. some republican rivals say huckabee went to far but the former arkansas governor and tv host says he will not recant. president obama says it is part of a pattern that he calls ridiculous if it weren't so sad. >> israel's government says that huckabee should not have used those words. we go to washington with a look at the strong language republicans are using. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. now huckabee goes first, he said that the deal could lead to genocide and that president obama just doesn't like israel. former florida governor jeb bush found himself once again monday having to condemn a gop rival's

7:05 am
in modern history, they're trying desperately to boost their poll numbers in the advance of next week. only the top ten will be allowed to participate. in a radio interview monday former pennsylvania senator, rick santorum who stands at 1% in the polls eagerly endorsed huckabee's comments. >> the president is now basically going to be the greatest funder of terrorism in the world. >> reporter: by and large republicans have not come down as hard on him as they have on donald trump for some of his outbursts. that could be because they agree with huckabee's underlying point that congress should reject this deal with iran. according to a new poll a slight majority of all americans, 52%, feel the same way. >> thank you. donald trump's campaign is issuing a strong response this morning to a story about the candidate and his ex-wife the "daily beast" web site said

7:08 am
>> reporter: crews are using a similar tactic farther north. >> we have the increased temperatures coming. we really want to get ahead of this. >> reporter: fire officials say crews have responded to about 1,100 more fires than last year at this time but have been more effect of containing them cutting down the acreage burned by about a quarter. >> with conditions so dry, we're hitting it with everything we have. >> reporter: while some locals are sent packing, at least one is more concerned with alpacas, more than 100 of them. she puts them into the pen, away from the brush that could easily catch fire. >> they don't like change. they like things calm and quiet. >> reporter: the willow fire has now burned over 1,500 acres.
7:09 am

7:10 am
no matter what this was a bubble that was poised to burst. >> can the government stabilize it? >> they're pulling out all the stops. they say they're injecting $8.5 billion into the stock market relaxing the rules around financing. they're telling companies if you own stock in the company where you work you can't sell and they will punish anyone maliciously trying to be a short seller right now. >> so what does it mean for the u.s.? >> i don't think think it means very much. notwithstanding the fact that china is the world's biggest economy now. the u.s. economy is growing at a slow albeit steady pace corporate america is in great shape. our stock market let off a little steam but more or less corporate america is doing really well. >> i guess what i find interesting is beijing's efforts to stabilize their markets are
7:11 am
not working. >> that's the big question. at the end of the day, one thing about beijing, they do a lot to manipulate. you never really know what's going on because the government has such a strong hand in everything. so at the end of the day, stocks trade based upon fundamentals and that's what we'll have to see, are what are the fundamentals of those chinese businesses? >> if you have a economy as big as china's, will not the slowdown of that economy and the lessening of demand for worldwide products affect a lot of other economies that are connected? >> that's the big question. again, what's the real growth number? we hear it's 7%. you don't ever really know. we will know in terms of how it does show up in terms of demand and everyone's watching that very, very carefully. >> thank you. president obama in ethiopia this morning said he could win a third term if the constitution
7:12 am
allowed it. the president wrapped up his five-day visit to eastern africa. major garrett covered the trip. he's in addis ababa, ethiopia. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. air force i has just taken off from ethiopia. the president touched on a sore topic, leaders who stay clinging to power longer than they should. >> i love my work but under our constitution i cannot run again. i can't run again. i actually think i'm a pretty good president. i think if i ran, i could win. but i can't. >> reporter: this is a state dinner and before last night's event, the president inspected the ancient remains of lucy the name given to a partial skeleton found in ethiopia in 1974.
7:13 am
lucy is 3.2 million years old. the president touched a vertebrae of the remains, a privilege typically reserved only for visiting scientists. a tour guide explains the remains rarely leave the national museum here and were brought under very tight security. and the president toured a food processing facility where he met a farmer who has increased her corn output by three times using new techniques supported in part by u.s. food security aid and advice. it has allowed her to move to a new home and send her children to school. the president also said they must wean themselves from the corrupt corporate culture. >> hundreds attended services yesterday for the two women killed. 33-year-old jillian johnson was
7:14 am
known for her love of music and southern louisiana culture and 21-year-old marcy was looking forward to a new job and birth of her niece. her boyfriend was among the nine hurt when a gunman opened fire. >> james holmes will testify in court today. the defense called holmes to the stage yesterday in the sentencing stage of his trial. he choked up during the testimony. she described while growing up her brother had a hard time making friends. she described what happened when she went to visit him in jail. >> his eyes were a lot different and his presence was a lot different from when i had seen him. >> the judge asked the jurors if any of the coverage on the
7:15 am
shooting. all 12 said yes. the judge ruled they could still remain impartial. >> a search for two missing boys is focused to the north of jacksonville. vicente arenas has the story. >> reporter: good morning. the boys went missing and their boat was found on sunday. last night a prayer vigil lighting up the sky to show support for the boys. at the local beach, perry cohen's family was joined by joe namath. >> while it's terrifying to know that the boat capsized it's
7:16 am
also a great relief because it allows the coast guard to strictly focus on a specific area now. >> reporter: this coast guard video shows the 19-foot boat belonging to the to ands nearly 70 nautical miles out at sea. >> we just confirmed nobody's on board. they're trying to find any other gear. >> reporter: divers seen in the water confirmed the boat's registration number. one life jacket was found floating near the overturned vessel. it's unclear if there were more. >> our intention is to search aggressively. >> reporter: the boys were last seen at this fueling station. a friend received this text message as they were leaving, "peace out, jup," for jupiter, florida. the coast guard is now aided by the u.s. navy.
7:17 am
crews are focusing even further north from where the boat was discovered sunday morning slowly drifting along the gulfstream. >> each search pattern is calculated specifically on where we think the boat and now the boys may be. >> reporter: the coast guard says white caps on the water make it more difficult to spot the boys but there is one good thing working in their favor. temperatures in the water who have are in the-- hover in the mid 80s this time of year. >> the boy scouts ended to end their ban on gay scouts and employees. it will still allow church based groups to turn away leaders for religious reasons. the church said it is reevaluating its centuries long relationship with the scouts. >> plans under way for laguardia

him. the senior congressional correspondent for "the daily beast" is with us from washington. tim, good morning. >> good morning. >> why did you decide to look into these allegations? >> i think it was important to look into, especially since donald trump launched his presidential campaign, making insults about mexico immigrants saying that they were quote, rapists. so it was a little bit relevant to look into his past and see exactly what might have been said about him on that topic in his personal life. >> how did mr. trump's lawyer respond when you asked these questions? >> i think it started off a little bit -- they were trying to say the allegation was not made in a criminal sense like
7:34 am
you mentioned. then it ended in insults and threats and threats of lawsuits and telling me to tread lightly and to say whatever lawsuit that they might file against me would be disgusting. it evolved pretty quickly. >> at what point did it take a turn? tim, you reached out to the campaign and you heard back from a lawyer. did that surprise you? >> yeah, that surprised me a lot. i've dealt with a lot of campaigns. very rarely does it get this acrimonious and so quickly. i've never reached out to a campaign looking for a story and heard back from the lawyer. >> cbs reached trump's lawyer for a comments and have not heard back. a source said nobody speaks for mr. trump but mr. trump. do they have a point? should trump be held accountable for people who may or may not spoke for him? >> i think trump should be held accountable for this allegation. he should be asked pretty directly what he thinks of it and how he would like to
7:35 am
respond. i think also that trump's lawyer has represented him on a number of occasions in front of the news media, so it's very obvious that trump has had no problem with michael cohen, his special counsel, speaking on his behalf in the past. >> missouri senator claire mccaskill tweeted most shocking part of it trump's lawyer think it's okay to rape your spouse. how do you think this gets played out in the campaign? >> the it's very interesting. their response to an allegation made in the '90s about an incident described as rape was that hey this is not criminal not least because it's not illegal to rape your spouse. there is no such thing. that has not been true in the state of new york for 30 years. over 30 years. very strange. especially coming from someone who is supposed to be knowledgeable about legal affairs is your lawyer. >> when confronted, donald trump
7:36 am
and his mo in the past seem to attack back. how concerned are you about it coming your way? >> i think trump needs to be held accountable and asked direct questions. i'm not at all concerned what might be coming my way. i think he should be asked a few hard questions whether he agrees with his lawyer's interpretation of law which is wrong, that spousal rape exists and it's not illegal. >> tim mac, thank you very much. >> thank you. this morning, we have a fascinating look inside the business of treasure hunting. a family found $1 million in gold and other artifacts off the florida coast. the treasure is from a fleet of ships that sank 300 years ago this week. vladimir shows us the historic find. vaed, good morning. >> good morning. the schmitts family says gps technology helped them track the area they evacuate under the water but it took hard work to

7:38 am
>> reporter: this is how they do it. on board, schmitt launches what is called a cross watch deflector and large aluminum tubes are over the propeller. the crew foscuses on an area 1,000 feet off shore and launched into ten to 15 feet of water and clearing away five to ten feet of sand to reveal what is under neath. >> things are untouched. you find things the way they were 300 years ago while going down. >> reporter: while combing the floor of the atlanta he finds gold at his fingertips. >> the more we do this the bigger the finds you make. i less believe in luck and more believe in our on hard work. >> reporter: if you're thinking treasure hunting and a million dollar haul sounds lucrative. there a little bit of red tape. the state of florida gets 20% of
