in this country. an estimated crowd of around 1 million people. the pope really addresses the public in english but did so sunday even as he offered a final blessing. >> may god bless you all, god bless america. >> reporter: pope francis ended on a high note as his last day here in the united states began with some of his strongest comments yet about church sex abuse. >> god weeps. >> reporter: speaking two to three hundred bishops this morning the pontiff went off-script for nearly three minutes and acknowledged some clergy members caused "grievous harm." >> translator: and i commit to a careful oversight to ensure that youth are protected and that all
responsible will be held accountable. >> reporter: those remarks came after meeting privately with five sexual abuse victims inside st. charles borneo seminary. barbara blaine from chicago is the president of the survivors network of those abused by priests. >> what i'm looking for is that the pope and church officials to take action that will prevent some other child from having to have his or cher innocence shattered. the pope just isn't doing that. >> reporter: at a news conference this afternoon vatican spokesperson father federico lombardi talked about the overall success of the pope's visit. >> pope francis focused on the family here in philadelphia but was very careful not to specifically mention his view of the family which starts, according to him, with one man and one woman. why didn't he have more to say about that this weekend?
>> he has avoided, i think, particular p particular polemics or discussion because he comes for a positive message. >> reporter: the pope concluded his trip with a mass for faithful families who say the sacrifices they made to be here were worth it. the two-hour-long mass came to an end with a thunderous applause. jeff, the vatican announced the next world meeting of families will be in dublin, ireland in 2018. >> thank you very much. before heading back home, pope francis had traveled more than 7,000 miles in nine days. impressive but not quite as fast as the family from his home country who made an epic road trip to see him. ♪ they left argentina in a vw bus named francesca. they set off from buenos aires
for a 13,000-mile pilgrimage. mom and dad quit their jobs and used savings to fund the trip through the americas, crossing 12 borders and staying with dozens of host families. on the way they saw the sights, even the white house. francesca, the bus, had its share of breakdowns but the family pressed on. finally in philadelphia their dream came true. all six were granted audience with pope francis. the pope asked, are you the family who traveled from buenos aires? you are crazy. there were hugs. then he said, i need your prayers. the vatican spokesman father lombardi made a note of the visit. >> the experience of this family has touched him very much. >> the family is now trying to raise money for their return trip. the mode of transportation to be determined. outgoing house speaker john boehner had his first exit interview today as he discussed his surprise resignation on "face the nation." >> i've got another 30 days to be speaker.
i'm going to make the same decisions the the same way i have over the last four and a half years. to make sure that we're passing conservative legislation that is good for the country. >> reporter: appearing on "face the nation," house speaker john boehner said he'll have a busy final month and promised there won't be a government shutdown next week. >> i expect it might have a little more cooperation from some around town to try to get as much finished as possible. i don't want to leave my successor a dirty barn. >> reporter: that cooperation is expected from democrats and not the far-right members of his party, whose rebellion led boehner to make his surprise announcement. must-do items include long-term spending bills and an extension of the debt limit. failure to complete them before the inspection speaker takes over raises the risk of fiscal standoff and shutdown in december as conservatives demand congress defund planned parenthood. >> really? this is the part that i really
don't understand. you know, our founders gave us the system of government, the majority in the house, you need 60 votes in the senate. if the house and senate can agree, the president gets to decide. our founders didn't want some parliamentary system where if you want a majority you've got to do whatever you wanted. they wanted to long, slow process. so change comes slowly. and obviously too slowly for some. >> are they unrealistic about what can be done in government? that's the -- >> absolutely they're unrealistic. i mean, this whole idea that we're going to shut down the government to get rid of obamacare in 2013? it plain never had a chance. over the course of the all recess in 2013 and the course of september, you know, a lot of them, my republican colleague hot knew it was a fool's errand, really are getting all this pressure from home to do this. so we've got groups here in town, members, the house and senate here in town, who whip people into a frenzy believing they can accomplish things that
they know, they know, are never going to happen. >> reporter: boehner called the conservative faction of his party false prophets and had this to say about one presidential candidate. >> is ted cruz a false prophet? >> you can pick a lot of names out, i'll let you choose them. >> reporter: this latest congressional drama is unfolding in the shadow of the 2016 campaign. a new poll shows donald trump and ben carson virtually tied, highlighting the appeal of outsider candidates who have surged promising to fight the gop establishment. former republican congressman tom davis says those forces put even more pressure on the next speaker. >> doesn't matter hot person is. it could be superman. these outside forces are still focusing and are polarizing forces within the conference with a republican grass roots that doesn't want any compromise with washington somebody to pick up the brick and throw it through the plate glass window. >> reporter: in a nod to conservatives boehner said there would be a special committee to investigate planned parenthood.
president obama arrived in new york for the start of the u.n. general assembly and high-stakes meetings this week with vladimir putin and raul castro. we're joined by cbs news foreign affairs correspondent, what can we expect this. >> this is the first time vladimir putin and president obama have met in more than a year. since president obama very publicly froze out putin following that military intervention in ukraine. so putin has really managed to turn that u.s. strategy of isolating him on its head and he is forcing the president to deal with him due to another military buildup, this time in syria. so despite u.s. calls to stop satellite images show that russia has sent in troops, war
planes, sophisticated military equipment, and today we learned of another complication. the iraqis who the work u.s.s with in the fight against isis announced they're going to coordinate with the russians plus syria and iran. so all this really caught the white house by surprise. so tomorrow president obama's going to walk into that meeting and try to figure out, is putin doing what he says he's going to, do fight isis? or is this to buttress his own position and that of his ally, bashar al ashaud? >> not what the white house would like to talk about right now. >> not at all. the white house want toth talk about iran and the nuclear accord and cuba and reopening relevances. president obama will be meeting with cuban president raul castro who's going to take the world stage for the very first time at the u.n. this week. he doesn't have a plan to meet with the president of iran, that would be politically difficult considering there are still americans being held prisoner there. when president obama takes the stage he's going to talk about international alliances to have
peacekeeping, to deal with the refugee crisis, and protect the environment. >> margaret, good to see you here in new york. there was a frightening moment today for republican presidential candidate carly fiorina. she was on stage in san antonio, texas, when the curtains suddenly collapsed on her. no one was hurt. typhoon dujuan is bearing down on taiwan. around 3,000 have been evacuated from islands to the country's east. the storm with winds as high as 140 miles an hour is expected to make landfall within hours. at least nine people were injured at a concert in tempe, arizona, last night after a chaotic rush towards the stage. maria villarreal has details. >> three feet, just get back a couple feet here -- >> reporter: tens of thousands of conterritorygoers hit tempe beach park for the summer ends festival when a surge of people rushed the stage. phoenix and tempe fire departments say they treated 40
people last night for dehydration and alcohol-related issues. but nine fans were treated for injuries directly related to the rush, including one serious head injury. by 7:00 p.m., the concert was stopped as paramedics and first responders tried to get to people in need. witnesses described the scene as the band revolution took the station. >> everybody is pushing back and forth. i saw this one girl go down. she started having a seizure. like chaos. one of the paramedics pulled me out. people started lifting me up, trying to get me out. i did, thankfully. >> reporter: concert organizers addressed the crowd asking for calm. >> can all the people who need help to get out of there, need water, air conditioning -- >> reporter: people took to social media. it was an experience, a bad one, but considering we were literally like sixth row and dead center of the chaos, i'm glad we're safe." the concert was stopped for about 45 minutes but started back up again, finishing the night's performances.
phoenix fire says in preparation for tonight's kanye west performance, they worked on strategies to reduce alcohol-related issues and minimize dehydration. maria villarreal, cbs news, los angeles. a death in jail following a traffic violation. what happened? and the high school football player who dwarfs the competition. when the "cbs evening news" continues. today you can do everything in just one click, even keep your toilet clean and fresh. introducing lysol click gel. click it in to enjoy clean freshness with every flush. lysol.
in michigan, a 32-year-old man was sentenced to 30 days in jail for a traffic violation. 17 days later, he was dead. the question, was it an accident? or neglect? >> reporter: the jail surveillance video is disturbing. it shows the steady deterioration and eventual death of a human being. in june of last year, david sejefski was serving 30 days in jail for failure to pay a $730 fine for careless driving. his family says he was being treated with drug addiction with methadone, xanax and klonopin. robert erie is the family's attorney. >> he was receiving treatment
that was wholly inadequate. if he was receiving at all. it was minimal. >> reporter: the man was stripped of all clothing according to jail protocol for his own protection and placed in a special unit. he began to demonstrate withdrawal symptoms, including convulsions. cellmates can be seen eating his food. he eventually lost 50 pounds. denied his medication, his behavior became erratic. at one point he fought with a fellow inmate. afterwards he had the cell all to himself. but on the jail video, his declining mental and physical state became even more pronounced. the 32-year-old would often hide under the bed. >> it is an example of a larger problem that exists nationally with respect to the proper treating and handle and maintaining of young people who go into local jails and state prisons with health and addiction problems. >> reporter: a little over two weeks into his sentence, he laid
down on a thin mat on the concrete floor. he can be seen twitching. his breathing labored. eventually jail employees entered the cell and began cpr. he was pronounced dead at the hospital. the family has filed a lawsuit even though the cell was under 24-hour surveillance the family alleges no one came to help despite him being on the floor and not eating. the sheriff's department is not commenting on the case. up next, a base recall between teammates. spectacle in the sky. a total lunar eclipse and super
moon on the same night. for the first time since 1982. it won't happen again until 2033. peak viewing started a little after 7:00 pacific and goes for an hour-plus. a violent fight between major league baseball teammates. outfielder bryce harper and pitcher jonathan papelbon exchanging word in the dugout when papelbon lunges and grabs harper by the throat. harper left the game after this. it is not clear exactly what led to that fight. today's st. louis rams/pittsburgh steelers football game, there was drama before the contest. a stray pyrotechnic during team introductions set the turf on fire, at least part of it. the game had to be delayed 30 minutes while crews cleaned up the mess. a high school football player in california is towering above the competition these days, literally. senior lineman john krahn from riverside is 7 feet tall and 440 pounds. taller than any player in the nfl.
it's an advantage on the field, less so off the field, according to his mom cindy. >> he can't go to disneyland because he can't sit in any of the rides. >> krahn is looking at college in montana for next year. he says if football doesn't work out he'd like to be a police officer. still ahead, the most memorable moments of an historic visit. pope francis has finished his first-ever u.s. visit and on his way back to the vatican tonight. cbs news foreign correspondent ellie has been with the pope, sometimes very close. the entire way all week.
he filed this reporters neat book. >> reporter: from the moment pope francis took his first steps on this trip there were events that stood out and at times bemoussed. who else but cuban president raul castro could make a welcoming speech that equated a socialist revolution with the ideals and aims of the catholic church in ordinary cubans had only one thing on their minds. would the pope's efforts mean an end to the u.s. trade embargo? his arrival in the u.s. was classic francis. welcomed at the steps of the plane by the president, then climbing into a fiat. what better way to show americans what they were about to see and hear something exceptional. the rapturous reception when he hit the streets was familiar. >> there's the fiat! right down there! did you see him? >> reporter: this reporter wasn't prepared for the rapture of a fellow correspondent. >> and i think he was waving directly at you. >> well, i -- did you hear my excitement? i was like a little girl again.
>> reporter: the commentary made it clear how privileged we who travel with the pope actually are. to get to shake his hand. look him in the eye. and feel the warmth that emanates from the man. >> we are living at a critical moment of history -- >> reporter: francis' speech at the white house was the first i'd ever heard him deliver in english. unlike his homilies in italian or spanish he barely deviated by a word. the deliberate delivery, diction, and emphasis drove home his message in a way no translation ever could. >> god bless america. >> reporter: and then there was the extraordinary security. never was so much carbon emitted to protect a man who concerned about global warming or who in the words of his press spokesman is happiest when there's no security at all. the classic moment was when this little girl breached the lines and francis had her brought over for a blessing. >> do unto others as you will
have them do unto you. >> reporter: as for the pope's breaches of the barriers of politics, you didn't have to be a policy womp to figure out who stood where on controversial points like climate change and immigration laws. but it was the enthusiasm of ordinary people which stood out above all. one was left with the overall impression the reaction to francis and his messages will linger. and the politician s ignore at their pearl. peril. >> "overnight news" will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
we close tonight off the coast of san diego where this weekend there was a first-ever international competition for disabled surfers. carter evans has the story. >> reporter: for these competitors the biggest hurdle is just getting out to sea. >> physically it's difficult for me. to get through the sand, to get out there. but once i'm out there, it's just pure freedom. >> reporter: elena nichols, paralyzed from the waist down, is a top paralympian. she's one of 90 athletes from 17 countries taking part in the world adaptive surfing championship. >> people with disabilities don't have the same opportunities as our able-bodied counterparts. so we just want to feel like any other person getting out there. and honestly, when we're out on the water, our disabilities completely disappear. >> reporter: as they have for
mike kunz from hawaii, who lost his right foot to a sharp when he was 16. >> i want to be a competitive body boarder. >> you were so young, your whole future ahead of you. >> i was. i thought i'd never compete in a heat again in my life. it feels absolutely incredible. it's something dreams are made of. >> reporter: they're also made from pure desire to do the incredible. 15-year-old lucas of chile was born totally blind. a spotter helps him find a wave. he does the rest. when lucas came ashore the hugs from coach and his father said it all. >> there was an emotional moment when you came back to shore. what was behind that? >> the future to surf is waiting this moment. he's had a dream and it's coming true. >> out of all the disabilities who do you think has the most challenge as far as surfing? >> i would say probably the blind surfer. he must be incredibly in tune with the ocean on a whole
different level that we can't even comprehend. >> reporter: nichols says the same drive that got them this far fuels the desire to compete. >> it doesn't matter if you're somebody that's missing all four lips. i still want to beat you. and the person next to me doesn't compare how paralyzed i am. we just want to compete. that really helps us feel like ourselves. like normal. >> reporter: wheelchair or not, that's about as normal as it gets. >> right on! >> reporter: carter evans, cbs news, la jolla, california. >> that is the "cbs overnight news" for this monday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." fr .
this is the "cbs overnight news." >> welcome to the "overnight news." we begin with house speaker john boehner, house speaker for now. the ohio republican stunned washington late last week when he announced he was giving up not only his leadership position but his position in congress entirely. he discussed it with john dickerson, moderator of "face the nation." >> as i said on friday, i was planning on leaving at the end of last year. when my friend eric cantor lost his primary election in july of last year, it was clear to me that i couldn't leave, that i had to provide a transition for the next leaders. so i planned on serving through this year. and on november 17th i was going to make an announcement.
and on -- thursday evening and friday morning i looked up and went, why do i want to put my colleagues through this when i'm going to make the same announcement six weeks from now? why do i want to put the institution through this? and so it was the right decision. frankly, i thought we handled it the right way. >> when you talk about the decision that they were going to have to go through, it was going to be a pretty messy -- >> a motion to vacate the chair. >> kick you out of your job, sorry, to help people at home understand what vacating the chair is. >> listen, winning that vote was never an issue. i was going to get the overwhelming number -- 400 votes, probably. but why do i want to make my members, republican members, walk the plank? because they're going to get criticized at home by some who were -- think we ought to be more aggressive. we've accomplished a lot over the four and a half years that i was speaker. whether it was the largest
deficit reduction deal in the history of the country, saving $2.1 trillion, protecting 99% of the american people from an increase in our taxes, or the first major entitlement reforms in 20 years, all done over the last four and a half years with a democrat president and all voted against by my most conservative members because it wasn't good enough. really? this is the part that i really don't understand. you know, our founders gave us this system of government. a majority in the house, you need 60 votes in the senate. if the house and senate can agree, the president gets to decide. our founders didn't want some parliamentary system where if you won a majority you got to do whatever you wanted. they wanted to long, slow process. and so change comes slowly. and obviously too slowly for some. >> are they unrealistic about what can be done in government? that's the -- >> absolutely they're
unrealistic. but you know, the bible says beware of false prophets are and there are people out there, you know, spread iing noise about h much can get done. i mean, this whole idea that we're going to shut down the government to get rid of obamacare in 2013? this plan never had a chance. but over the course of the august recess in 2013 and the course of september, you know, a lot of them, my republican colleague hot knew it was a fool's errand, really they were etting all this pressure from e home to do this. and so we got groups here in town, members of the house and senate here in town, who whipped people into a frenzy believing they can accomplish things that they know, they know, are never going to happen. it's just -- but listen, i've had 25 great years here in washington. i've had great staff. i've had great colleagues. i'm very thankful to my family and to my constituents for giving me the honor to do this.
>> is ted cruz a false prophet? >> it was a name, you can pick a lot of names out, i'll let you choose them. >> you don't debate that assertion? >> i'm refer you to my remark at a fund-raiser made in august in colorado. no, i was a rebel. and it wasn't about shaking up republican leadership, it was shaking up the house. the house was run as one democrat chairman called it the last plantation in america. and whether it was the house bank scandal, the restaurant scandal, the post office scandal, i've sent my share of members to jail action over improper activities in the house. but out of that we began to question how the house itself was being run. the floor of the house. helped us write the contract with america, helped us get into the majority. and it's been a great run. >> hem ask you about the -- by
the way, you called -- i believe the word you used was jackass, referring to -- >> i've referred to that. >> we've buttoned that up for the american people. pope francis, switching to a much bigger topic here, what was a bigger accomplishment for you? becoming named speaker or having the pope come as your guest? >> a kid that grew up as an altar boy, having poie ining th was a big deal. i've tried the last three popes to get them to come and address a joint session of congress. the first time i did this in 1995 or '96, somehow showed up in the press as my mother called me. still alive then. my mother never called me. so i answer the phone. john, it's your mother. now listen, i see you're inviting the pope. if he comes, i'm there. you got it? yes, mom, i got it. >> she was with you this time?
>> well. looking from above. >> yes, that's what i mean. tell me about that day. the impression it left on you. it's a big deal having you come. then you're in his presence. >> yes, yes. so we had a nice greeting when he came to the capitol. once the cameras were gone and the pope sat down i said, your holy father, you're on boehner time. he looked at me kind of funny. i said, that means you're on time or you're early, and you're early. but we had a wonderful, wonderful chat. and father -- cardinal whorl and myself got into a conversation with the pope about our commitment to kids and education. and then the meeting broke up. and my family came in. and my 6-week-old grandson allistair was blessed by the pope. very nice.
>> and then you told another story about what the pope said to you about prayer. >> we had left the balcony where the pope had addressed all the people in the west front of the capitol. we came through my office. the pope went down the first floor on my elevator and i took the british steps down to the first floor. and in what we now call freedom foyer, i was standing there with the pope. the cardinals and the rest of his entourage were all moving out to their vehicles. and the pope takes his left arm and grabs my left arm. pulls me near him. and saying really nice words. i would repeat them except it would really cause me to cry. and then he put his arm around me. and pulled me right into him and said, "please pray for me."
well. you can imagine. i was a mess. ♪ dry spray? i've never used one of these before. ♪ that's fun. that is fun. ♪ it's already dry! it dried right away. it doesn't feel wet at all right now. no wait time. this is great. ♪ my skin feels loved. it's very soft. there's no white stuff. it does the moisturizing for me. it's everything i love about dove. can i keep it? ♪ all the care of dove. now in a dry antiperspirant spray.
republican presidential front-runner donald trump has had a testy relationship with many fellow gop conned dates and some members of the press. scott pelley sat down with trump for "60 minutes." >> now you've got everybody's attention. >> i do have their attention. >> revolution is easy. governing is hard. and what i'd like to get at is how you intend to govern the country if you're elected president. what's your tax plan? >> substantial reduction for the middle-income people. our admit class is being absolutely december mated. it will be a corporate also reduction. i think it will be a great incentive for corporations. >> who are you going to raise taxes on? >> if you look at actual raise, some very wealthy are going to be raised. some people that are getting unfair deductions are going to be raised. but overall it's going to be a tremendous incentive to grow the
economy and we're going to take in the same or more money and i think we're going to have something that's going to be spectacular. >> republicans don't raise taxes. >> we're not raising taxes. >> what kind of republican are you? >> the only -- well, i'm a pretty good republican but i will tell you this, i do have some differences. i don't want to have certain people on wall street get away with paying no tax. >> you say you're going to lower taxes on the middle chas. what are we talking about? >> we're talking about numbers that will be announced over the next two days and they'll be significant for the middle class. >> you know what the numbers are? >> i know them right now. >> why don't you tell me? this is "60 minutes." it's time to tell the folks at home the details -- >> i will say this, there will be a large segment of our country that will have a zero rate. zero rate. that's something i haven't told anybody. >> you're talking about? >> people in the low-income brackets that are supposed to be paying taxes, many of them don't anyway. >> you're talking about making part of the population exempt from income tax? >> that is correct.
>> you're talking about cutting corporate taxes? >> that is correct. >> $19 trillion debt, you can't afford to do those things. >> if the economy grows the way it should grow, if i bring jobs back from china, japan, mexico, so many countries. everybody's taking our jobs. >> how do you get them back? $20 an hour jobs that this country was built on. >> right, exactly. you get them back by taking them away from other countries. if you look at china -- >> how does the president do that? >> by not allowing places like china to devaluate -- they devalue their currency so such an extent that it's impossible for our companies to compete. every time they do that, they suck the blood right out of our country. >> you're not running for president of china. >> no, i'm not, no. >> you're not going to be able to prevent the devaluation of their currency -- >> sure you are. they don't respect our president, they don't respect our country. they will respect me, they won't be doing it. if they don't come to the table they're going to have a tax when they put their products into this country.
and they're going to be behave. >> you would tax their products coming into the united states? you're talking about a trade war. >> i'm talking about a fair war. i'm talking about also, i have the smartest people on wall street lined up already. they're going to represent us on japan, on mexico. mexico by the way is taking our jobs. i love the mexican people. they're great people. but the leadership is too smart for our country. ford motor company moving a $2.5 billion plant to mexico. >> there's nothing you can do about that as president. >> sure there is. >> how do you keep them from exporting american jobs to mexico? >> let's say ford moves to mexico. they want to sell that car in the united states, they pay a tax. here's what's going to happen. they're not going to build their plant there, they're going to build in the ups. >> but there is a north american free trade agreement. >> there shouldn't be it's a disaster. >> but it's there, if you're president you're going to have to live with it. >> we'll renegotiate it or break it. every agreement has an end. >> you can't just break the law. >> excuse me, every agreement
has an end. every agreement has to be fair. every agreement has a defraud -- we're being defrauded by these countries. >> it's called tree trade and it is a plank of the republican platform. >> we need fair trade. not free trade. we need fair trade. it's got to be fair. >> trump's differences with republicans and democrats have him rising on a mood of national frustration. in our cbs news poll nearly half of republicans in the early primary states say they're not dissatisfied with washington, they're angry. they tell us that business know-how matters much more than a political resume. >> hello, sir. >> reporter: when they see the multi-billionaire in his private 757, 80% of republicans say they see a strong leader. >> so i want to build our country. our country's been decimated. we have spent so much money in the middle east and other places. we are -- our roads are falling apart, our bridges are falling
apart, everything's falling apart. we have to rebuild our country. >> this sounds great. how are you going to pay for it? >> we're going to absolutely be able to pay for it. my economy will expand so rapidly, we're going to take jobs back from other countries and we will be able to pay for it. >> are you serious about deporting 12 million illegal immigrants? >> nobody knows the number. but the answer is, you just said it, they're illegal immigrants. they're here illegally. first of all, i have to start a little differently. we're going to build a wall and create a border. it's going to be a great wall and it's not going to be expensive and it's going to be peanuts compared to the kind of numbers -- >> how are you going to build a wall that is cheap and impenetrable? >> it will be a real wall, a wall that works. it will be a about wall that will look good, believe on it are not. what they have now is a joke. they're ugly, little, and don't work. >> let's assume your wall has gone up. >> good. >> 11 million, 12 million illegal immigrants still -- >> whatever the number is. >> -- still in the country. what do you do? >> if they've done well, they're
