5:07 am
it was earlier in the week when trump said this of russian president vladimir putin. >> if he says great things about me, i'm going to say great things about him. i've already said he is very much a leader. >> reporter: and gave clinton more ammunition. >> i'm not sure anything surprises us any more but i certainly was disappointed. >> reporter: trump stood by the comments last night. >> then she talks about me, oh, donald trump likes putin. and putin likes trump. if we got along with russia, that wouldn't be so bad, would it? >> reporter: now both vice presidential candidates democrat senator tim kaine and republican governor mike pence, received their first intelligence briefings this week as well. kaine didn't comment on the highly classified meeting but pence said afterwards he hopes the world knows that donald trump will be ready on day one to be commander in chief. >> errol barnett in washington, thank you. joining us with more is carlos watson. he has been covering the campaign for the online news magazine he founded, ozzie

5:09 am
swing states. we know ohio and florida but where else? we got to think about iowa as an example and may think about a place like wisconsin. we may think about nevada but could be tough because of a large latino population. but then he need one to tip the balance and we are talking about pennsylvania or michigan. today those polls don't look good but a big debate coming. >> talk to us about the new ad in light of the numbers. hillary clinton they say has been in a negative place and now a positive ad, i think most would agree. >> i think she wants to make an affirmative case particularly to the gary johnson voters. he has 10%, 11%, depending on the polls. i think she is clear that there is only so much you can do with the never trump population and the very strongly pro hillary population so i think she is looking to gain some ground there and also with undecided so you've heard her talk about education in different ways and she has gone back to a calling card good for her husband's two successful campaigns which is the economy and the belief she can create many new job.
5:10 am
>> how much damage do you think gary johnson did to himself this week when he couldn't answer the question about aleppo and didn't know where it was? >> it felt like a rick perry moment. remember that in 2014, the oops? i think one of those moments if you remember admiral stockdale back in the day and ross perot's running mate. less than five seconds, meaningful undercut his campaign. >> it has brought this region to front and center. people are now talking about it. >> very much so. one of the tough things about the syrian case there is so many angles to it. as we saw earlier this week, again, john kerry and his russian counterpart trying to find road forward, not only for the refuges but fighting isis and islamic militants. >> you've produced a documentary with pbs called 16 for 16 and examines the most influential presidential campaigns and we look forward to that. carlos watson, thank you for being with us. >> thank you.

♪7 it is time for "morning rounds." joining us is dr. jon lapook and cbs news contributor dr. tara narula. the fight for zika. for the first time aerial praying on miami beach area used naled insecticide and deemed safe but people have concerns. why the new concerns, jon? >> they are spraying something that kills mosquitoes and the natural question is what can it do to me, especially if i'm pregnant. i've spoken to the epa and the cdc and they explained to me it's a matter of dosage.
5:38 am
so at the low dosage that they are using, which by the way, is two tablespoons for the equivalent of a football field, it is neurotoxic to mosquitoes. it kills mosquitoes. if that dosage, they are saying it's safe for humans. it's been used for more than 50 years. you can understand people's concern and this is a classic thing of risk benefit and the public health officials are saying, look, the risk of the zika virus outweighs the possible risk of the spray. >> if you have concerns, other precaution you can take? >> according to the epa no special precautions people need to take and don't need to leave the area while the spraying is occurring. but it's a good idea to avoid unnecessary exposure to pesticides and insecticides. stay indoors and close your windows. if you're outside and get exposed to the spray, wash your skin or eyes with water. bring into your house any pet toys or children's toys and
5:39 am
cover your furniture or grill. bring your vegetables or fruits inside and wash them. if you are concerned, call poison control or call your doctor. >> why do they have to do both aerial spraying and ground? why not be more targeted? >> you remember fact that these mosquitoes can breathe a lot in just a little thimble of water? think about what happens when it rains. in the trees you have nooks and cranny an mosquitoes could be breeding up there and you need aerial spraying for that. >> an estimated 24 million americans currently suffer from asthma, chronic lung disease, including 7 million journal. a journal reports there might be an effective weapon against it. one we all know about. vitamin d often called the sunshine vitamin. tell us about this study. >> this looked at this idea of something as simple as vitamin d which is the vitamin that your skin makes when exposed to
5:40 am
sunshine or when you ingest with food or supplements could decrease asthma symptoms or exacerbations. they did find that vitamin d would drese the number of reactions. it decreased the number of people visiting the hospital or emergency rooms. there was no severe diverse effects with vitamin d but vitamin d did not change lung function. >> if you have asthma, take it or not? >> the authors were very careful to point out in the discussion this is preliminary data and it's relatively few people. they specifically said there is really not very much information on kid. so i think for now, you heard about how you could get it naturally or get it with supplements with eating fish that is oily. i think it's time when you talk to your doctor about, you know, maybe getting a vitamin d level

trintellix may start to untangle or help improve the multiple symptoms of depression. for me, trintellix made a difference. tell your healthcare professional right away if your depression worsens, or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. trintellix has not been studied in children. do not take with maois. tell your healthcare professional about your medications, including migraine, psychiatric and depression medications to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. increased risk of bleeding or bruising may occur especially if taken with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners. manic episodes or vision problems may occur in some people. may cause low sodium levels. the most common side effects are nausea, constipation and vomiting. trintellix did not have significant impact on weight. ask your healthcare professional if trintellix could make a difference for you. because my teeth are yellow. these photos? why don't you use a whitening toothpaste? i'm afraid it's bad for my teeth. try crest 3d white.
