good morning to the viewers in the west. it's thursday august 18th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more news ahead including trump's campaign leader. what the candidate needs to say to woman. first here is the eye opener at 8:00. firefighters have said that they have never seen a fire like this. ryan lochet got back to u.s. before they questioned him on the story. yesterday looks like a campaign session and then it was on the two new people.
8:01 am
clinton says that there's consequences and ended up losing. 40,000 homes were damage in this flood. it's clear that parts of southern louisiana will never be the same. this routine trip turned into a nightmare for passengers and crew when a fire broke out in the room. the american track and field team has not won a single gold here on the track in rio. on wednesday that all change in a very historic way. having a great time. she has not given a real press conference in eight months. that's 250 days. the last time she gave a press conference jeb bush's family was still proud of him. that's how long it's been. i'm charlie rhoids with gayle king. firefighters are battling a
8:02 am
massive and fast moving wild fire in southern california. crews in san bernardino county worked over night to try to stop the flames. more than 1,500 personnel are focussing on the fire. they're using 178 engines and ten air tankers. they say that it's unlike anything that they have seen. it's only four percent contained and covers 40 square miles. >> more than 82,000 people are under e vvacuations orders. the fire has destroyed several homes already, but there are not able to give an exact number on that. hillary clinton is telling the supporters not to let themselves be complacent because of the polls. the latest survey shows clinton leading in double digit in three battleground states, colorado, virginia and pennsylvania. trump holds an 11 point lead in
8:03 am
indiana. a new chief executive and campaign manager. clinton told a rally that the changes do not mean that there's a new donald trump. >> i think it's fair to say that donald trump has shown us who he is. he is hire and fire anybody that he wants from the campaign. they can make him read new words from a tell prompter, but he is still the same man who insults gold star families, demeans woman, mocks people with disabilities, and thinks he knows more about isis than the generals. >> donald trump's new campaign manager conway joining us at the table. >> thank you. >> so what are you going to be do? are you going to be doing what a campaign manager does or are you managing the candidate? >> a little bit of both. i think that it's important to
8:04 am
make sure that internally our structure is sound. people have the equipment and tools that they need. that includes charlie, the data folks. i am a big person on details politics. donald trump is a retail candidate. >> that is when he does not get in front of his own message. >> we have had a great message week. we started on monday with a speech on radical terrorism and what it is and why it matters. many feel that they have been at war for 15 years with a team we can not name. majority of americans feel safer and feel optimistic. we want to take a message directly to the american people and that's the goal. >> does the managing chair change in weeks how is this not trouble from the outside looking in? >> well, with 12 weeks to go and
8:05 am
less of that now -- who is counting. with just 12 weeks to go gayle we look at it as a busy time for the campaign:when it comes to personnel and senior level staff, more is more. more of the big minds and broad shoulders that we can get. paul manafort is there and has the title. >> now, you have three leader it appears. at some point somebody has to make the call and be in strong. who is that? >> well, i respect him tremendously. he is the candidate that i and i would not have the threat to do what he has. >> that's the poll and famously said. it has failed and the campaign
8:06 am
has been a referendum on donald trump. >> yeah, i agree with you. i made the remarks last month because i noticed that the democrats when asked when hillary clinton and the supporters are asked in interviews tell us what you're going to do about obama care. how do you explain the birth since 2013. they talk about donald trump. hillary clinton wants to talk about donald trump and we want to talk about the american people. >> you want to talk to woman in particular. donald trump said about mrs. clinton she lacks the physical and mental stamina for isis. she does not look presidential. how do you get him to stop saying things like that? >> well, it's a choice. i find it to be disappointing and coming for someone to be the
8:07 am
commander in chief. she is reading from something that someone else wrote. there's not a single job that gets created from that or getting health care from that. i will pledge this to you. the way to speak to woman and all americans is through issues. we have to get away from the content free campaign and on to the substance. talking to the people that are struggling and talking to the people that are doing well. dh how do they protect that and moving forward? >> do you feel that's the exact problem that's complicated. what you say that you want to redirect it from? >> well, i am confident that he is finding joy in the job this week. he is enjoying getting out there and doing the speeches and then in a rally where he can interact with the media. you do not see the meetings with the media and families and other folks. i am confident that he can stay
8:08 am
on message. the message has to be about issues. i would rather lose a campaign where we put it on the fields and people saw the difference of the issues on the day. this is about style, and he can go back to the apprentice. >> does the style and temperament matter? >> yes, sir it does. they want it to be about tone and temperament. it's about facts and figures. this is what you're seeing this week. >> speaking of facts and figures, he has received an intelligence report, does he believe it. >> i'm asking details did he believe the intelligence report that the cia prepared for him? >> yes, he did. when you say believe, he is taking it seriously and digesting it. nobody looks at something that complicated in one sitting. >> so he is not saying that i
8:09 am
don't believe what they're reporting because he does not believe what they're doing. >> no, he did not say that yesterday in my briefing or better. speaking of yesterday, we sat at a round table with generals, former congressman and congressman and other experts, and it was a greater young zion conversation where where i call it interactive. the questions are one that is wanting to be the commander in chief and wanting to do well by the armed forces and the allies abroad. i was happy to sit in because it's things that we do not see as voters. >> did that briefing change any of the views on any of the national security issue sns. >> i cannot comment on that. what that briefing did and proceeded it is that it's allowing us to continue the conversation and being informed. it's incredible important for him to remain important -- for
8:10 am
he and mrs. clinton remain in form that had the u.s. is a dangerous place. this changes everyday and there are things that you and i will never know that now secretary clinton and trump are learning. >> ted cruz obviously said what he had the say at the convention. what do you know about don that ted cruz does not know? >> that's he is very gracious. he promotes woman. i am told and i am the first female republican campaign manager in political history. that tells you a lot of stuff. i am there based on merit. it's systematic on what he is and promoting woman. the other thing about donald trump to learn that he does not look at things through a political lens.
8:11 am
senators and congressman tend to. they can not help themselves. this is the first campaign and it's very researching that donald trump speaks the way that many americans speak. it's not always the perfect word because it's not postered and in the area but at the same time he is enjoying conveying his thoughts in a way. once you take that case to the people. he is the guy charlie that's really putting political correctness on the campaign ballot this year. >> started out with 17 candidate zps now down to one. >> yeah. >> thank you. we're going to leave it there. >> thanks for having me. a new study on why sitting can kill you slowly even if you exercise. we're going to stand up for this one with a cardiologist that's in the toyota green

8:34 am
exercise, it's okay if i'm sitting 15 hours the rest of the day. some of the research has shown, in fact, if you do exercise you can attenuate some of the problems that come with sitting but this new statement really says that regardless of how much exercise you do, you cannot undo the harms of sitting and that we need to think about these as two distinct entities, sitting and exercise that work through two different mechanisms and have different health consequences. >> what did it mean? >> we can undo or limit a little bit. >> that is what it means? this surprises me. i exercise but i have one of these handy dandy underarm bandit says if i've been sitting too long and it says 60 minutes. what is bad if you're doing the exercise? what does it do for your body if you don't get up and walk around? >> in 1953 one of the first studies came out that said london bus drivers had a higher risk of coronary heart disease than conductors.
