i got distracted. russia is banning fidget spinners and just like that there goes russia's reputation as a fun country. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. bianna golodryga of yahoo! news is with us. welcome again. >> good morning. senator john mccain is fighting one of the more dangerous forms of brain cancer. he revealed the diagnosis less than a week after surgery to remove a blood clot. >> the doctors also removed a tumor known as a glioblastoma. experts say this type of cancer is aggressive and tough to treat. >> president trump put out a statement of support saying senator john mccain has always been a fighter, get well soon. and former president barack obama who defeated mccain in the 2008 election called him an
7:04 am
american hero and tweeted, "give it hell, john." nancy cordes is on capitol hill with a show of solidarity for mccain's senate colleagues, everyone rooting for the maveri ncy. >> that's right. if you asked every senator up here who among them is the toughest, they would all say john mccain. but this is exactly what they had been dreading, that the clot that was removed on friday might be linked to something more serious. >> it's going to be a tough way forward but he says i've been through worse. >> reporter: gop senators were in a nighttime meeting about health care when they received news about mccain's health. >> it was very emotional. >> we're giving him our best thoughts and wishes. >> it kind of puts things in perspective. >> south carolina senator lindsey graham is john mccain's best friend in the senate. >> god knows how this end, not me. but i do know this -- this disease has never had a more worthy opponent. >> reporter: the diagnosis helps explain what graham noticed was some recent fatigue and forgetfulness.

>> in the case of mr. comey, you -- president comey -- case of president trump -- >> reporter: glioblastoma is the same type of brain cancer that felled another legend of the senate, ted kennedy, in 2009. and joe biden's son beau in 2015. former vice president joe biden tweeted, john and i have been friends for 40 years. he's gotten through so much difficulty with so much grace. he is strong and he will beat this. mccain has faced cancer scares before. he has had four melanomas or skin cancer lesions removed since 1993, the most recent in 2002. >> you're okay. the plastic surgery you had. >> yeah. just fine. absolutely. i go every three months to my determine tols. >> reporter: mccain's colleagues insisted he can weather this too. >> he's one tough guy. >> reporter: after all they say the 80-year-old former navy

7:07 am
our chief medical correspondent dr. john lapook is with us this morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> tell us about this particular cancer and the treatment options. >> as you mentioned it's a very deadly time of brain cancer and the statistics in the past have been grim. however, there are some new treatments. there is a standard first line which involves chemotherapy and radiation. as nancy said, the chemotherapy is a pill taken by mouth and generally tolerated pretty well. >> and treatment options other than that? >> well, that's the first line. there are a bunch of other things in development. remember scott pelley did a piece on "60 minutes" down at duke where they injected polio virus into a tumor to get some immune reaction to that. there's an electrical cap that people put on to create disrupting electrical fields. one of the things that cancer does which makes it so deadly is it hides itself from your immune system. it cloaks itself. a lot of these new therapies are
7:08 am
to strip that cloak away and say, oh, there it is, i'm going to go out and kill you -- kill it. >> the thing about glioblastoma is it makes finger-like projects through the brain and that's what makes it difficult to treat, right? >> that's right. they say they were able to remove anything that was visible. the problem with glioblastoma is by the time it's there, there are tiny microscopic ones that have spread elsewhere which is why you always need other treatment. >> he has been treated three times, believe, for malignant melanoma, but it was stage zero and noninvasive. could this be related? >> i don't think it is related. a few days ago on friday when they said we're sending the clotd out for pathology and wait on treatment options, i thought it's a benign little blood clot, if it's benign, why wait for the pathology report? i was thinking it could be ma anything lant melanol noanom metastasized to the brain. so did some neurologists i spoke
7:09 am
to. but it's a different type of tumor. it hasn't spread from somewhere else to the brain. it started in the brain. >> let me ask this. they probably weren't looking for this? they were trying to find out what was behind the blood clot? >> we don't know a lot of the details about the symptoms. they did a routine scan, they found a clot there and said let's find out what it is. what's interesting is you remember during the testimony with james comey there was a moment or two where we sort of had some confusion, difficulty getting words out. you think about the frontal lobe where the clot is and the tumor is, the front of the brain is involved with communication, language, so you can imagine if there's a problem there, that could have given him those symptoms. >> lindsey graham said he had been feeling tired too. >> that's one of the symptoms. any part of the brain that's affected it can cause a headache, cause weakness, it can cause little tiny seizures. all sorts of problems. i'm going to tell you something. he's a strong guy and he's going to be putting up his dukes. >> he is a fighter. i said this online, "faith in my

7:11 am
of the united states. >> reporter: candidate donald trump was captivated by jeff sessions' early campaign endorsement and after victory -- >> i, jeff sessions -- >> -- rewarded him with the slot of attorney general. >> i have now decided to recuse myself. >> reporter: but when sessions recused himself from the russian investigation, sources say the president saw weakness and divided loyalties. those sentiments boiled over into interviews with "the new york times." >> sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recue himself, he should have told me before he took the job and i would have picked somebody else. it's extremely unfair, and that's a mild word, to the president. >> i did not have communications with the russians. >> reporter: mr. trump also criticized sessions for giving, quote, bad answers during the the senate confirmation hearings. sessions testified he had not met with any russians even though he had met at least twice with russian ambassador sergey kisly kislyak. they should have been simple answers, but they weren't, mr. trump said.

7:16 am
he also needs to show what are his plans for the future. they don't let them out willy nilly. where are you going to live? how are you going to support yourself? who's going to be there for you? and he has the ability to do that with the person who is coming to say he'll live with him and his family. >> plus, he's ban model prisoner, they say. >> model prisoner indeed. there is a graph. this is done by status and by dynamic factors. there are 11 factors a board considers. it's a grid. and by all estimation, the lower your score, the lower your risk. any person in his situation, the percentages are that 82% of people in nevada will get paroled toward their minimum sentence -- his is a minimum of 9 to a maximum of 33 -- were they were in his situation. >> how long will it take a decision? >> very fast. they'll have a hearing, recess very briefly, and come back with a decision.

>> good morning it's thursday july 20th, 2017. welcome to cbs this morning. senator john mccain faces a battle with brain cancer. ahead we consult with one of america's top cancer specialists plus our series a more perfect union. meet a musician that helps the homeless by playing and talking with them. but first here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> senator john mccain is fighting one of the most dangerous forms of brain cancer. he revealed the diagnosis after surgery. >> if you asked every senator who among them was the toughest they would all say mccain but this is what they had been dreading. >> it can cause headache.
8:01 am
it can cause weakness but he's a strong guy and i'm sure he'll be putting up his dukes. >> the white house has tried relent leslie to turn attention from the russia investigation but president trump's criticism of his own attorney general deeps story alive. >> o.j. simpson will appear via video conference from inside this prison to ask for his freedom. >> what does he need to demonstrate to the parole board? >> firefighters are trying to stop a wildfire in california. two days this fire doubled in size. it also forced the evacuation of thousands. >> steven colbert sits down with a russian billionaire as russia week continues on the late show. >> more like the brooklyn nets right. top up. don't leave me hanging, come on. >> this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is sponsored by blue
8:02 am
buffalo. >> i'm with nora mcdonald. gail is off. republican and democrats are showing support this morning to their long time colleague john mccain. >> the 80-year-old senator has an aggressive form of brain cancer. doctors discovered the glioblastoma during mccain's surgery for a blood clot last week and he is recovering at home in arizona. he tweeted tough diagnosis for a tougher man. senate minority leader chuck schumer called him a true fighter and his close friend senator lindsey graham said this disease has never had a more worthy opponent. >> david someone of the country's top oncologists. he leads the university of southern california west side cancer center and joins us from los angeles. good morning. >> good morning. >> help us understand this brain cancer. >> it's the most aggressive form of brain cancer.
8:03 am
most people live about 14.5 months but for the first time there's actually new optimism with targeted therapy and immunotherapy but senator mccain's initial therapy would be standard therapy i think which is a combination of oral chemotherapy for six months and then a month off and then six more months of oral chemotherapy. >> explain the physiology. why is it so difficult to treat? >> he had surgery above his left eye where the tumor was taken out and the margins were clear and that means there was no visible tumor left. the problem is there's little projections there. almost like tree branches growing so no matter how good the surgery there's always cancer left behind and this cancer recurs in almost all patients. >> he's said to be recovering well this morning but what are the odds we'll see him back at work in washington during his treatment. >> the treatment is tolerable. he's 80 years old and he is
8:04 am
tough as nails so cancer has certainly a worthy opponent in this one and he's going to take it on but i would imagine his treatment can be in the washington d.c. area and he could be part of the senate during his treatment. >> what's on the front tier for trying to treat this kind of brain cancer? what might we expect in the future? >> well, molecularly targeted therapy. they're identifying what are the on switches and there's drugs that could turn them off but some of the major excitement comes from a study at duke university where the polio virus was used to turn on the immune system to attack this form of cancer and some of the patients in the study survived many years with this form of treatment so it's in clinical trials now but certainly very exciting. >> so i mean, how do you have access to that and is it effective 100% of the time? >> so this is in clinical trials initially at duke but now
8:05 am
spreading across the country. major cancer centers are opening this trial for patient with glioblastoma. unfortunately in our business nothing works all the time and we don't have a crystal ball but as much as possible we try to put patients on experimental therapy when standard treatments have worked and really for the first time there's hope in this disease that we can achieve a long-term benefit to patients with some of these newer treatments. >> we're all routing for the senator and wishing him the best. >> thank you. p>> many republican senators learned of john mccain's diagnosis during a meeting on health care that lasted well into the evening. earlier president trump told senators to keep working to repeal and replace obamacare. he said they must not leave for their august recess without taking action. majority leader mitch mcconnell said there will be a health care vote next week. republicans may repeal obamacare without having a replacement ready. a new cbo report says that approach would lead 32 million
8:06 am
more without coverage by 2026. and the average price of individual policies could double. >> with us now from capitol hill is south dakota senator, chairman of the senate republican conference that makes him the third ranking republican in the senate. senator, always good to see you. thank you for joining us this morning. >> good morning, good to be with you. >> let's begin first with your colleague, senator john mccain. how is the news of his brain cancer effecting everyone in the senate? >> the diagnosis made this an incredibly sad day on capitol hill. john mccain is beloved on both sides of the aisle. he's a hero to me and our colleagues and millions of americans and people all over the world so we're all hoping and praying for him and for cindy and his family. >> he says he's going to be back at work. you don't doubt him right? >> i have travelled, you know, outside of the united states a number of times with him and i have seen him work guys half his
8:07 am
age into the ground. he is a remarkable individual. >> it is remarkable also howell she spoken of in the senate in terms of his ability as a warrior as you have said. return to health care and where we stand today. >> right. well at the moment we are trying to get to 50 votes in the senate on something that will repeal and replace obamacare. we know that the markets are collapsing. prices have been skyrocketing for people in this country and something has to be done and it's -- i think that among our members and i think one of the fundamental flaws in obamacare for the entire country and i think what we're hearing from our members is every state is different. every state has different populations. governors have different ideas and i think anything that's effective and ultimately passes in the senate is going to have to distribute and shift authority and power and flexibility back in his face.
8:08 am
>> president trump said you're very close to getting something done. is that how you characterize it? >> i'd say we're going to need a little longer runway. we're getting close. we are. but we still have some issues that we have to resolve and we have some members that aren't quite there yet. we don't have the 50 votes we're going to need to get this across the finish line just yet but eventually we will. >> the president publicly pressuring you not to go on your vacation. one day he's saying to repeal it. the other day he's saying to repeal and replace it. one of your colleagues in the senate said the president share skairs no one in the senate. not even the pages. what is your reaction to that? >> well, look, i think that the president has an important role to play. particularly he has the pulpit and the roles of the american people and engaging them in the conversation about why it's important that we fix this. i think senators up here obviously look to him for leadership in that respect. and his team has been very involved in the day-to-day conversations that we're having about this but ultimately it's a
8:09 am
function of congress. we have to get this done. the senate how has the responsibility to act and i think nern people will and should hold us accountable. >> you are aware of this new york times interview with the president obviously. does this make it difficult for your former colleague, jeff sessions from alabama now the attorney general to continue when the president says what he says? >> i guess what i would say to that charlie is we all admire and respect him and his abilities. if i were him i would do his job and do his job well and ignore the daily news cycle come uting out of the white house. i don't think that's going to change. he has an important job to do. one we can confirm him for here and he has the confidence of people here on capitol hill and folks at the justice department and that's what is most important. >> do you have concerns about the meetings that president trump has had with russian president vladimir putin? the first meeting which went longer than expected two hours
8:10 am
where there was no note taker only the secretary of state in that room to provide a read out and then the second meeting and conversation that happened at a dinner, do you think that's appropriate should there be others who helped record those conversations? >> i think it's probably always good for the president to have his top advisers and foreign policy, national security people in the room for a meeting like that. i don't think it's unusual for a president to have conversations and i think people expect that but obviously there's a lot of attention being paid to that relationship with russia and the president has to be sensitive to that but i certainly would expect that he would have people in the meetings that would be critical to shaping america's foreign policy with respect to russia and other places around the world. >> there's reports of concerns within his inner circle and administration about his relationship with vladimir putin. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you senator. >> o.j. simpson will make his
8:11 am
case today for release from a nevada prison. a parole board will hear testimony and decide whether to free the former football star. simpson has served nearly nine years of his 33 year sentence for armed robbery and other charges. the 70-year-old's last parole hearing was in 2013. to minimize the media frenzy the parole board is expected to issue today's ruling within minutes rather than days and we'll bring you live coverage of the parole hearing scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. pacific. you can watch it here or download the cbs news app to watch it on our streaming network. nice plug for the app there. in the next half hour we talk to carl douglas one of the defense attorneys from the 1995 murder trial. why douglas says the simpson case still

surfaced on twitter. some people compared the face to lindsay lohan's. and they say the skin is way too light. the image provoked a storm of online criticism of madam tu sads. >> and britain's guardian reports voted to name a train trainee mctrain face. it got 49% of the votes to name a popular research vessel boaty mcboat face. as we reported earlier o.j. simpson could soon walk free from a nevada prison. simpson was convicted in 2008 of armed robbery, kidnapping, and other charges after attempting to retrieve sports memorabilia at a las vegas hotel. he'll ask for a release from a patrol board. it was the 1995 murder trial that guarantees simpson's place in american history. the football phenom turned movie star was accused of murdering ex-wife nicole simpson and ron
8:34 am
goldman. the "washington post" writes, quote, o.j. simpson's story represents one of the most dramatic falls from grace in the history of american pop culture. attorney karl douglas was part of the dream team defense during the 1995 murder trial. he's joining us live from los angeles. let me ask you, first, do you think we're going to hear a release today from the parole hearing? >> i think so, really. he had a parole hearing in 2013, and he was granted parole on seven of the 12 charges. since then, he had been a model prisoner. there are been no write ups. there's no reason to think he won't be paroled today, as well. >> why do you think this case -- what, in particular, made it so striking to the american public who became obsessed with it? >> this is really been the perfect storm of all things that fascinate americans. first, it was a crime drama.
8:35 am
there probably are more crime networks and crime shows on than any other type of show. second, it was celebrity. and we americans have always been fascinated by celebrity. and then you have to throw in, as well, the energizer of race. when those three components were thrown together, clearly it struck a chord with many americans. >> do you think that o.j. simpson will speak to what happened? >> i'm not sure he'll speak to what happened in 1994. but he may well talk about things that were going on from his most recent in nevada. people want to hear his version of -- >> i don't think he'll ever really give a sit down concerning that. he was kuwaited acquitted of th charges. that's a part of his past. there's a fascination about that, i don't think i would ever see him sitting down and
8:36 am
discussing that even now. >> simpson received a maximum sentence of 33 years in connection with the las vegas hotel robbery. in some say it was payback for his acquittal in the 1994 double murder case. do you agree with that? >> i do. i'm one of those that think certainly there was connection all though the judge would deny it from the sentence that was given as well as what happened in los angeles. you got to understand the verdict in that case was 13 years to the day, october 3rd, that was the verdict in the los angeles trial. the 33 year sentence mirrored $33 and a half million that was against him in the civil trial. i don't think it was a coincidence. i think it was a tragedy that he was punished for what happened in los angeles. >> do you still talk to o.j. simpson? >> i haven't had a chance to talk with him for more than ten years. the last time i saw o.j. was at
8:37 am
johnny cochran's funeral in april 2005. one of the figures there had asked anybody who had ever been represented by johnny to stand up. i looked to the church to my right and there was o.j. simpson and a few rows away was michael jackson standing, as well. it was a scene to remember. >> do you think at the time of the trial there was much written and said, you know, about how different communities african-american community or other communities saw him? is there a difference today how different communities see o.j. simpson? >> you know, i think, charlie, that the distinction between the opinions of the white community and the black community are far closer today 22 years later than they were in 1995. i dare say i would suspect that probably a majority of african-americans would probably
8:38 am
believe that o.j. simpson was responsible for the two deaths though those numbers were far smaller back 22 years ago. >> we were speaking with ricky collieman earlier. a legal analyst and he said that o.j. simpson still has plenty of money. he has a huge pension. >> my understanding is, yes, he gets $25,000 a month from his pension with the nfl. and i think there is another pension, as well, he gets from the screen actor's guild. i hope he has used and saved that money well. and he won't be strapped for cash when he's released in october, if he's granted parole today. >> she said it's a pension that could be worth about $25 million. that's protected from the goldmans. >> yes, it is. those pensions are protected under florida law so they cannot be attached for paying back the proceeds of the verdict against him. >> what do you expect he'll do with his life as a free man, if he's released? he's 70 years old. >> he's 70 years old now. i think o.j., the first thing he
8:39 am
wants to do, if he's able to be paroled to florida, which was his home, he is first, i'm sure, going to reconnect with his family. he's the father of four children. i suspect he'll seek a little female attention and he'll return to his greatest passion, which is golf. at 70 years an i'm not sure if his body will portray him, but i think for sure he's going to want to be an active role in golf. >> after all these years, is there one question you wish you could answer about o.j. simpson? >> you know, i probably have all the answers, charlie, to all the questions i've had over 22 years. i've had more than enough time to rack my brain and there's not really one question that i haven't ask of o.j. that i want to ask him today. >> all right. >> all of them? >> for sure. >> all right. karl douglas, thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me.

8:48 am
you hear that? she called me sir. >> what do you encourage them to do? >> say hello. to say . >> you would be shocked at what you learn. >> that simple. >> that simple. >> because the money comes in the form of tips on the street, he doesn't know how much money he's actually raised. he say it's probably more than $20,000. >> wow. >> reminds me of the humans of new york project. >> yeah. >> just want someone to talk to. >> yeah. >> and sometimes those stories just -- you have no idea how they may impact you. i think that's truly his message. >> michelle, thanks. a canadian man built his own resort in his own backyard. what it took to build the massive pool and how it serves a different purpose in the winter. you can hear more of "cbs this morning" on our pod cast on itunes and apple's pod cast app. you can hear the entire interview with the iron foreian
