the mystery is over. "time" magazine's person of the year is german chancellor angela merkel. and victoria secret dawning their angel wings. donald trump says he loves harrison ford as a tough as nails president. >> donald, it was a movie. not like this in real life. >> on "cbs this morning" -- >> the customs agent was going to ask him or her his religion? >> they would say, are you muslim? >> if they said, they would not be allowed in the country. >> that's correct. >> this is a fool-proof plan. because isis' one weakness is they can't tell a lie. >> this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." donald trump is facing worldwide
7:03 am
condemnation for saying muslims should be temporarily banned from entering the united states. but trump is defiant and hitting back. the republican presidential frontrunner tweeted last night, quote, wow, what a day. so many foolish people that refuse to acknowledge the a tremendous danger and uncertainty of certain people coming into u.s. >> the people trump called foolish include his presidential opponents, leaders of both parties and the press. major garrett is in washington where republican leaders are dreading what comes next. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. for weeks the republican party thought donald trump running for the white house that would drum up a win in 2016? well, this draws withering criticism from the right, the left and around the world for suggesting america ban muslims. the gop has found that having trump in the party can be a
7:04 am
nightmare, too. donald trump defended what many in his party consider indefensib indefensible? >> do you regret your ban on muslims, which some people think is un-american? >> not at all. we have to do the right thing. somebody in this country has to say the right thing. >> are you a bigot? >> not at all. probably the least of anybody you've ever met. >> reporter: the top republicans in congress who studiosly refuse to comment on the campaign came down hard on donald trump. >> this was not conservativism. what was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for and more importantly it's not what this country stands for. >> this suggestion is completely and totally inconsistent with american values. >> reporter: ben carson and marco rubio joined the chorus. >> we do not discriminate on people based on religion. that's in the first amendment. >> this would violate the
7:05 am
constitution. >> reporter: ted cruz now surging in iowa refused to say if trump's plan violated the constitution. >> i disagree with the proposal, i like donald trump. a lot of our friends here have encouraged me to criticize and attack donald trump. i'm not interested in doing so. >> reporter: jeb bush was asked to promise not to back trump if he became the gop nominee. >> i can guarantee you donald trump is not going to be the nominee. >> reporter: white house press secretary josh earnest said trump and the gop are tied together unless trump's rivals refuse to support him as the nominee. the question now is about the rest of the republican party. and whether or not they're going to be dragging the dust and history with him. >> reporter: despite all this criticism, republicans in congress say they will still vote for trump if he becomes the gop nominee. in an interview with bloomberg, vice president joe biden called trump's ideas, quote, a dangerous brew and said if he is the republican nominee, hillary clinton wins in a walk. charlie? thank you, major.
7:06 am
john dickerson is with us along with our nancy cordes traveling the country covering the campaign. good morning. >> good morning. >> we'll start with you, john, does this simply deepen the people that will are sporting him, making him for fervent. or does it add more supporters in his campaign for the republican nomination. >> there's a core group of trump supporters we have seen unshakable. they support him and the more he gets involved in the controversy the tighter they cling to him, in part because the greatest thing they like about him is he says things others do not. he speaks the truth to them. sometimes he gets his facts wrong, that doesn't matter to them, to them he speaks a deeper truth. so he consolidates his support. we'll see if there's anything different in this case. it's going to wall him off in terms of his ability to get a larger share of the vote. he's got the trump voters but making himself that much more difficult to get any other kind of voter. >> nancy, can all the
7:07 am
republicans now in congress speaking out, can they stop donald trump. >> they can't. there's no war room somewhere where republican leaders or donors are hatching a plan to bring down donald trump. because everything they have tried has failed and they will say openly we are out of ideas. and this is a real problem for senate republicans. there are seven senate republicans who are up for re-elections in states that president obama won twice. and republicans really fear that if donald trump is the nominee, those seats are gone. >> is there any evidence so far it's hurting the republican party? >> yes. because republicans can't plan for running their re-election campaign. they know that if donald trump is at the top of the ticket, they're going to have to try in many ways to distance themselves from the nominee because he alienates hispanics and women. and so they are sort of in a holding pattern watching to see if he gets the nomination. and then they have to change-up their strategy. >> one data point that was not lost on donald trump was the new poll that 68% of his supporters would vote for him if he departed the gop and ran as an independent.
7:08 am
that's a real possibility. >> that core group that i'm talking about, very sticky voters. they stay with donald trump. and the challenge nancy was talking about with the senators running in the republican party and others was articulated in the memo leaked last week from the committee involved in trying to reelect the senators. own the within hand donald trump is a misguided missile and they worry about what is happening this week. he would say something outrageous and every republican has to say, do you agree we it or not. that was on the one hand. on the other hand, my gosh, he's tapping into an anger of a local of voter who is may not sign up with what he's saying but finally feel like here's something saying something with conviction. >> did he sign a pledge not to run as a third party? >> donald can get out of contracts. if you can get out of the constitution, you can get out of the contract you may have signed. >> republicans have lost five of the six presidential races in terms of the popular vote. we know you still get elected by electoral votes, but wasn't there an autopsy done by the republican national committee after the last election? and what did they find about what the next republican nominee
7:09 am
needs to do in order to win? >> well, they found that the next nominee needs to appeal to his panic voters. he needs to appeal to all minorities and create a bigger tent. they could not have anticipated that donald trump would wade into the race the way he did and sort of mess up their best laid plans. and the problem is it's driving all the contenders to the right because they are all going up against him. >> in the end, the thing would be for donald trump to lose the primary. >> which means they need an alternative. there are too many alternative candidates meaning the non-trump vote gets split. when you look at the alternatives, they have condemned him but nobody is coming out to speak loud and proud for the alternative world view. giving a long-strung speech that says here's why donald trump is wrong about american values, about the security situation. lindsey graham is the only one who has said more than a few condemning things, who articulates what the danger is of this. makes the alternative argument. you can't beat something with nothing. and there's no alternative out
7:10 am
there who is really being a strong advocate for their world view as donald trump is being a strong advocate for the world view. >> when it comes time to supporting the nominee, the question and answer seems to be question. >> the answer absolutely is yes no matter how many bad things they say they would support him as the nominee. thank you very much. a group of voters was brought to studio 57. we'll hear what they said and why so many people responded and how they respond to trump's ideas. that's ahead on "cbs this morning." investigators say there are no signs of san bernardino shooters belonging to a larger terror cell. loretta lynch revealed that new information this morning. the fbi is still tracking what syed farook and his wife were doing before the shooting that left 14 people dead. carter is outside in san
7:11 am
bernardino with more. >> reporter: the two may have been radicalized for some time and farook took out a large loan before the attack and the couple may have planned to use that money to take care of the daughter they left behind. before killing 14 people at a holiday party last week, syed farook received a loan from online lender prosper and investigators are now trying to follow the money. they are also questioning enrique marques, a long-time friend of farook's who purchased the rifles in the attack. he could face charges for his involvement. his family had no comment tuesday. >> can we talk with you a moment? >> reporter: it's also unclear if farook's mother knew about the pending attack. last week fbi agents seized several items after searching their black lexus found in front of the apartment shared by the couple. for the first time we're getting a look inside the room where the two shooters opened fire. this newly-released photo shows
7:12 am
julie swan faez receiving an award just before the attack. faez was shot twice in the pelvis but survived and now more than a dozen first responders are sharing their stories. >> i don't feel like a hero whatsoever. >> reporter: detective george lozano was captured on video leading the survivors to safety. >> there was a female there with a small child, maybe an 8-year-old little boy, that was just terrified. and i said what i said. i'll take a bullet before you, that's for damn sure. just be cool, okay? >> did you feel exposed? did you feel like when you open that door that shooter could be on the other end? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: nicholas was one of the two officers shot in the thigh in the final confrontation with the killers. he left his vehicle to pull another officer to safety. >> when i left the male was already down on the street. i didn't know who was in the back of the car shooting at us
7:13 am
but could hear rifle fire coming out of the car. >> reporter: so now you know that was taj firing at you. >> i do now. >> reporter: this shows the attacker's suv at a local shopping mall the day before the attack. it's unclear what they were planning to do there. as for the inland regional center behind me, two of the buildings are going to stay closed at least until the end of the year. the building where the attack happened could remain closed indefinitely. >> thanks, carter. republicans and democrats on capitol hill are backing new limits for america's visa waiver program. this allows travelers from 38 countries to enter the united states without a visa. they can only stay for 90 days or less. the house voted overwhelmingly on tuesday to deny a waiver to anyone who has traveled to iraq or syria in the previous five years. those travelers can enter the united states but they need a visa. lawmakers say it closes a loophole in the law. the senate has not yet scheduled a vote. this morning french police have identified the blast of the terror suspects who murdered 89
7:14 am
people at a paris concert hall. french news organizations are showing a picture of fouad mohamed-aggad killed during the bataclan attacks. he was a french syrian. two other suspects are unidentified nearly a month later. one is still at large. new video shows russia's first ever cruise missile strikes in syria from a submarine. russia's military released the video showing the launches from the mediterranean and says the barrage destroyed targets in raqqah. they are hitting much more syrian groups than isis. more powerful storms in oregon and washington caused mudslides and forced the evacuations. a falling tree killed a woman inside her portland home. the rain is expected to intensify this week. ben tracy is in kalama, washington, near portland. ben, good morning.
7:15 am

7:16 am
sinkhole in gresham and wind gusts as strong as 40 miles per hour toppled trees. >> all of a sudden i heard a big whoosh come down and next thing i know we have a tree down. i'm just waiting for more to go tonight. >> reporter: even in a part of the country used to seeing rain, the amount of wet weather drenching portland this week has set records. and it's likely to get worse in the coming days. we found these homeowners filling sandbags preparing for the next round of storms. what do you make of so much rain in so little time? >> i was saying yesterday it's probably a 100-year rain event, maybe longer than that. >> reporter: the storms are being caused by what is called an atmospheric river where the jet dream parks its over one area and hits it with storm after storm after storm and there is more rain in the forecast today. >> ben, thank you so much. record rainfall in south florida shut down one of the region's biggest attractions. zoo miami has been closed since saturday. storms flooded many motes used

7:18 am
showed up by the dozens at a campus health center this week to say they were sick. that included several members of the men's basketball team who said they, too, had eaten at the popular chipotle near campus. >> you never think about it, you just go and want to get food on the weekend with your friends. >> reporter: this 18-year-old freshman ate there saturday and began to feel ill a day later. she'll be tested today. >> i've been having stomach problems, but like it's not that bad. and i just want to be safe. >> reporter: college health officials say students suffered symptoms including vomiting and diarrhea. the boston public health commission says early lab results indicate norovirus as the cause. the highly-contagious virus is contracted by up to 21 million americans each year. city health inspectors visited the chipotle location on monday and closed it temporarily citing it with three violences, including one for an employee who came to work sick which is against company policy. the news comes six weeks after an e. coli outbreak at the
7:19 am
restaurant chain. chipotle temporarily closed 43 of its restaurants in the pacific northwest. as of december 2nd, the cdc reported 52 chipotle-linked cases of e. coli in nine states. the chain says the instant in boston is unrelated. the company said there are no confirmed cases of e. coli connected to chipotle in massachusetts. chipotle said before this restaurant reopens, all the employees will be tested for the norovirus and this restaurant has passed previous inspections but say the recent results are not up to their standards. >> thank you so much, anna. rock star scott wiland's tragic battle with addiction needs a call to action,,

death of a cofounder of the north face. douglas tompkins was with five others when their kayak cap-sized yesterday in chile. he died at the hospital of high owe therm ya. tompkins was 72. politicians outraged over the idea of keeping muslims from entering the u.s. does not tell the full story. many of donald trump's supporters say his proposal is worth a try and conservatives on talk radio agree. that debate continued last night in studio 57. republican strategy and cbs news contributor frank luntz is here. what did you learn the last three or four days? >> not surprising. group we assembled consisted of 23 people. half men, half women. some democrats and some republicans. none of them are muslims but some had family members who are. here are excerpts of that
7:34 am
conversation. how many of you agree with donald trump that you would not allow another muslim into this country until they have a way of tracking who these people are? who agrees with him? and who disagrees with him? so, to me, it sound like discrimination. >> it used to be when people would immigrate to america, they wanted the american dream and wanted to come here and speak english and assimilate. now we have people coming here who want to kill us. >> unfortunately, trump says the rhetoric with something that is irrelevant and it's irrelevant it's unconstitutional and against the law and unlawful. you cannot discriminate against somebody's religion. >> we can't trust him, bottom line, it's 2015. >> you can't trust who? >> the muslims coming in. we don't know who they are. >> you're picking out a specific religion? >> i am, because we can't trust them. >> this whole mentality and this whole attitude, you know, it to me proves the fact these acts of terror do try to get this kind of reaction and the stronger the
7:35 am
reaction we have against people the more they are going to feel zot isolated and get recrude. >> if they are hell bent on relying that the muslims is causing this can we at least single out the countries that are honorabloring isis that we know of? >> show me a country on the planet where mass muslim immigration has led to peace and prosperity. not france, not england, not sweden. >> i think why people are behind trump with that comment is because they are not -- they do not trust this administration or the federal law enforcement to do what they need to do, which is vet everybody. check everybody out. and that is why trump can say that and he has support still. >> i also was listening to the audience applauding trump when he talked about this yesterday. >> how did that make you feel? >> well, i started to think, i hope this isn't inappropriate, but i started to think that maybe part of the deal is the mind come of this century and especially if he continues. >> he has an opinion. what is wrong with someone
7:36 am
expressing their opinion? even though you might not agree with it, he has an opinion. he might not be right, he might be wrong. but he's giving people a choice these days. people in washington have been afraid to say. >> this man is insane. >> pilgrims came here for freedom of religion. our country was founded on people. that's why they came here. it's a hard one. i like trump but that is a hard oe to swallow. >> he didn't say ban all muslims from practicing faith. he said ban new ones from coming in. that's a big distinction. >> the reason he is resonating he is because he acknowledges there is a problem. he is the only one acknowledge there is a serious problem that needs to be analyzed. >> it has to be fixed and how is it fixed if you don't direct the problem and fix it. >> you can't forget what happened in boston as well. and san bernardino. you know? he is bringing to life stuff that is trying to be like pushed under the rug. >> yes. >> all of a sudden, there were -- there was an outcry from all muslim countries, individuals that were decrying what he said.
7:37 am
and it was a very, very long list. i was starting to read it. my question was -- where were they last week decrying the act that took place in san bernardino? >> i read an article -- san jose mercury news muslims heard donald trump's comments and went out in the public in the malls to show people who they were and show people they are not associated with that. if his comments make people realize that's not me. >> that's a good thing? >> that's a good thing. >> we are actually talking about this issue. he is toxic. his comments offenderd me but t me the sentiment we have to talk about this. >> it's polarizing. on many levels, it seems to me resonating. >> yes. what i found was that they actually want to find common ground, but trump, who they appreciate for raising the issues, they resent the way that he communicates those issues. they feel he pulls it apart. that is a problem with politics right now. the public is expecting their
7:38 am
elected officials to find a way to get things done but the politicians themselves don't respond because they are more interested in getting elected than they seem to be getting success. >> why didn't you have muslims in the group? it seems like they would be an important part of that particular conversation. >> they would be but with 23 people statistically, i actually should not have recruited one but we have two participants who had muslims as immediate family members. and they took all sides of this issue and it surprised me. some of the african-american members who participated were less critical of trump. some of the working class white voters who are supposed to be pro-trump were against him. >> how many people in that group of that 23 do you think support what trump is recommending, a ban on muslims temporarily? >> i'd say about 40%. >> 40%? >> yes. >> you see it in the population overall. what we try to do in these focus groups is bring out what people
7:39 am
are actually thinking. not what they might say to you on national television. they forget the cameras are there and people come up to me and thank me at the end because they lost their fear of speaking out. charlie, the critical point here is that this election cycle can bring out an awful lot of issues that we are divided on and i do believe the american people have the capability in discussion to resolve them. the problem is that the politicians stoke the anger and stoke the fear, rather than try to bring -- >> the politicians or one politician? >> some of the politicians? >> let's face it, donald trump does it more than anybody else. >> frank luntz, thank you. >> thank you. coming up a revealing look inside a rock star's troubled family life. scott weiland's ex-wife opens up about the personal demons and makes a plea to his fans. if you're heading out the door set your dvr so you can watch "cbs this morning" any time.

sensor on. it's purely based on wireless signals deflected off your body and coming back to the device. >> reporter: what was the inception for this? >> like, we work on wireless networks. the question is can you use wireless networks or wi-fi for purposes other than communications? can you sense the environment with it? the low frequency wireless signals only predict chin's movements in the floor. >> do you want to see the red dot fall. >> reporter: yes. researchers hope this can better protect seniors at a risk of falling. 2.5 million elderly americans are at a hospital each year at a cost of $34 billion. >> if it detects a fall, it sends it to the caregiver. >> reporter: that is scratching the surface of emerald's capability. when he is seated they zero in on his signals.

♪ mandy patinkin plays a cia division chief on "homeland". the series airs on showtime, a division of cbs. when mandy recently joined us here at the table he shared the remarkable true story of his own personal rescue mission when took him to greece last month. he helped rescues get ashore on an island. we asked him how that changed his world. >> i'm not a politician. i'm an actor. i trover myself as a human dunn -- humantician. what i want for myself and my children and all people all over the world is to be less afraid. i had been in berlin since june 1st shooting the first season of homeland." our job if we are doing it well, in my humble opinion, is to create a poetic version of the
8:46 am
real world that is spinning, burning, falling apart around us. so it was early on in the summer when everything exploded out of proportion in greece and the refuge crisis which was no surprise to anyone. and i was wanting to go there to see if i could do anything. i went to greece because i needed to reconnect with reality. i needed to meet a family that was struggling in this real crisis. i wanted to hold the baby in my arms. so we went to lesbos. 5,000 people are come through that since the crisis began. these first two days that i was there, there wasn't a single boat that arrived. the final day, we were going to the airport and people said, the boats are coming! so we ran! we had about four or five blocks to run down the beach! and we got there just as the boat was arriving! and packed with all of these people. they came right on the beach and the people just started flying out of the boat!
8:47 am
i get to the boat. i walk right up to the boat and held the rope to hold the boat and a father puts this child in my arms and she had a face mask on. there you go. how are you? i lowered the face mask and she wasn't moving and her eyes were closed. i thought, oh, my god, she's not alive. and my mouth said she is sleeping. but i remember thinking she was not alive. and then the father started to lose it. he came up and he choked back for a minute. i was trying to find a pulse but i couldn't. and then i put my hand, my finger, my baby finger in her hand and i swear it moved. and i thought, oh, god, she's alive. then he just whisked the family away with the crowd and they were gone. i got this information as i landed in athens, the protection team followed up with dad and daughter and they were taken by ambulance to the hospital.
8:48 am
the child was born with a breathing disorder and suffers from epileptic episodes. at the center they gave her medications she needed and the team coordinated an exercise regime for the family and the family was reunited and i was reliev relieved. why are you from? >> afghanistan. >> afghanistan? it's a risk if we don't help these people. it's a moral crisis. that's what is at risk. welcome to the rest of the world. fear is the poison of our lives. we are all afraid of so many things. anybody who doesn't understand that and have some empathy toward fear that people have all over the world isn't being kind. fear is very real. but there is nothing to be afraid of here, nothing at all.
8:49 am
you're welcome. our humanity is at risk if we don't take care of these people. our right to exist is at risk. if you don't help these people, when you are in need, there will be no one, i guarantee you, there will be no one to help you. >> important to hear about that. >> sort of echoes that headlines in the daily news today. i didn't speak up, i didn't speak up and when it was my turn, no one would speak up for me. i like what he says fear is a poison of our lives and our humanity is at risk. mandy took us there. >> do unto others as you would do unto them. >> you're watching "cbs th,,
