5:01 am
getting some pushback from hollywood. but we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> he's a bit of a norm breaker. he likes to break rules. now that he's out, he may very well become a fierce opponent of the white house from the outside. >> steve bannon moves on after being ousted from the white house. >> one of the most controversial figures in the trump white house is now vowing to intensify his fight back at breitbart news. >> how will he be different after now serving seven months in the white house. >> these experiences change you and make you understand how the protests actually work. what is steve going to do? now he knows who the enemies of the american people are. police in spain believe the driver of the van who plowed into pedestrians in barcelona could still be at large. >> last night crowds gathered to pay their respects to the victims. >> one officer has died in a shooting in kissimmee, florida.
5:02 am
they're investigating whether it was an ambush. >> officers will be on hand to keep the peace between speech ralliers and counterprotesters. >> they have the right to gather no matter how repugnant their views are. >> check out this huge waterspout. >> no one was injured but jaws dropped when they saw that pass nearby. >> excitement is building for the first solar eclipse visible since 1979. >> all that -- >> and called strike 3, and north carolina into the record books with a combined perfect game. anderson started it, mattias came in, hardy finished. no hits, ten strikeouts. >> and all that matters. >> since monday, eight ceos have resigned from trump's manufacturing council, including denise morrison of campbell's soup. i'm being told we have a statement from her spokesperson. >> nothing for you! >> on "cbs this morning saturday." >> it was the kick of a lifetime. jake suitor was told if he hits
5:03 am
this 53-yard field goal he would earn a scholarship for the season. it's perfect! it was 53 yards. >> now that's a pressure kick, huh? >> i think it's a little more than game pressure. >> welcome to the weekend, everyone. i'm anthony mason along with dana jacobson who's in for alex wagner. we begin this morning with our top story. yet another trump administration shakeup. steve bannon, the president's chief strategist, was ousted friday while the president was at camp david for national security meetings. bannon was the architect -- an architect of mr. trump's election victory, but as a far right nationalist he was also a contentious presence in the white house. >> after his meetings, the president returned to his golf course in bedminster, new
5:04 am
jersey, without any comment about bannon's departure. errol barnett has the latest. >> reporter: good morning. white house officials claim that steve bannon and chief of staff, general john kelly, mutually agreed that it was time for bannon to go, but sources tell cbs news that president trump has been frustrated by bannon's rising profile and by media coverage of bannon as the real mastermind behind president trump's campaign. president trump arrived in new jersey friday amid unanswered questions about his decision to fire chief strategist, steve bannon. >> we'll see what happens with mr. bannon. >> reporter: an explosive press conference earlier in the week, the president refused to express confidence in bannon and downplayed his role in the 2016 campaign. >> mr. bannon came on very late, you know that. i went through 17 senators, governors, and i won all the primaries. mr. bannon came on very much later than that. >> reporter: as one of mr.
5:05 am
trump's first white house hires, bannon arrived with a nationalist agenda, claiming shortly after the inauguration that he was ready to fight for a new political order. >> if you think they're going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken. every day, every day it is going to be a fight. >> reporter: bannon had been a consistent lightning rod for criticism, partly because of his work for breitbart news. but within hours of his firing, the outlet announced he would return as its executive chairman. and in an interview with "the weekly standard" bannon said his departure signals that the trump presidency his movement fought for is over, but returning to breitbart means he's got his hands back on his weapons and he vowed to crush the opposition. >> is steve bannon a leaker? >> i said he was. >> reporter: unafraid to feud with other white house officials, bannon had butted heads with several colleagues, including a recent clash with short-lived communications director anthony scaramucci.
5:06 am
>> is he going to be gone in a week? >> that's up to the president. >> what do you think? what does the mooch think? >> if it was up to me, he would be gone, but it's not up to me. >> reporter: now, "the weekly standard" interview was one of a series of really exit interviews for bannon that he gave this past week. in an earlier exchange he contradicted the president on north korea and called for a maniacal focus on china. bannon says he is jacked up and will likely continue the feuds that he began while he was in the white house. the white house has just announced that president trump will not participate in the kennedy center honors so as to not be a political distraction. >> errol barnett in new jersey, thank you. for more we turn to cbs news political director steve shagaris. mr. bannon went out with guns blazing, didn't he? >> oh, yes, not a surprise. this is a rough and tumble politics guy. people described him as a street
5:07 am
fighter, not a surprise. he was unhappy with some of the people in the white house, people like jared kushner and gary cohn. he felt these people did not have the same world view as him or the president. >> so what does it mean now for the white house agenda? >> that's a good question. i don't think you're going to see the president back off his america first ideas. i don't think you're going to see him backing off on immigration and trade. but the question is, is what happens now with his foreign policy, with military intervention. these are the kinds of things that steve bannon was pushing to sort of not expand. but now you have generals in charge, now you have people giving him all sorts of ideas about that, so we'll watch that very closely. >> bannon is returning to breitbart news and has said he's going to remain very vovinvolve here and very vocal. there were a lot of people that were worried at the white house, i think, about bannon back on the outside. >> that's the big question, how does bannon use his influence now? is he still going to talk to the president? the president called him a friend the other day when asked
5:08 am
about bannon. but he now has a megaphone that is looked at by conservatives and the white working class voters that voted for trump. does bannon use that against the president or is he just going to go after the people he doesn't like in the white house. we'll see how that turns out. >> some people have suggested that he could be more dangerous outside the white house. >> that's right, he could be stirring things up. again, is he going to be a thorn in the president's side or use this to be an ally for the president? we'll have to watch very closely what bannon does with breitbart because it's a very influential website. >> what do you make of this news that the president is not going center honors this year? >> it's interesting. watching the kennedy center honors last year and hearing what people were saying about president trump, you know, it is -- it is a political distraction, i think, to have this president with all these people being honored that don't agree with him whatsoever. you saw people they're either not going to attend the honors or not attend the white house reception beforehand so it has become a distraction already. the president is saying forget
5:09 am
all this. i don't think it's good for anybody for me to be involved. >> obviously we've seen so much fallout since charlottesville and his comments about that. we've heard democrats talk about censure but even members of his own party are rebuking him. what is that political fallout there? >> let's remember, this isn't the first time republicans have rebuked or condemned or criticized president for something that he's done for being very controversial. let's go back to when he attacked the gold star families, when he was criticizing the judge that was involved in the trump university suit, when he had his "access hollywood" tape come out. republicans are very, very critic critical. what's happening now is the first since president but i think you'll see republicans say, look, we don't like some of the things this president does. we're going to come out and protect ourselves and say we don't like some of the things he does, but at the same time, his success is important to their success. >> so the same thing as the election? >> the republicans need to keep their majority and get
5:10 am
re-elected in the mid-terms. how are you going to do that if you completely ignore the president and dump him overboard? i think they can come out and say we don't agree with what he says on these issues, but we still have to work with him on getting tax cuts done and getting his agenda done, because we have to show our voters we're getting things done in washington. >> but in the dialogue in the last week, a lot of that agenda has been completely eclipsed. >> yeah, it's been eclipsed pretty much this entire presidency. every week there is a distraction. the president is getting himself into trouble with whether it's firing james comey, whether it's charlottesville. he's constantly getting himself -- distracting himself from the agenda. that's what frustrates a lot of these republicans. are they going to focus on what we need to get done and show people we're accomplishing things. >> steve, thank you very much for the insight. coming up in the next hour, we'll talk with joshua green, the author of "devil's bargain" the best-selling book about the
5:11 am
trump-bannon relationship, and he landed the first interview with steve bannon since he was ousted from the white house. that's coming up. it was a dangerous night for police officers in two separate states. one officer was killed and another seriously injured. in kissimmee, florida, near orlando, the officers were checking people in an area of the city known for drug activity when they were shot. they were unable to fire back. three suspects were arrested. a fourth is being sought. >> it's getting tough. it's getting tough to do the job that we've all sworn to protect and uphold and maintain livable neighborhoods, keep people safe. you know, these senseless acts are going on. >> a few hours later in jacksonville, two police officers were shot and wounded. both officers are expected to survive. the suspect was killed. and two pennsylvania state troopers are recovering after they were shot. it happened at a convenience store about an hour south of
5:12 am
pittsburgh. police say the suspect was killed at the scene. an intensive manhunt is under way in spain following the attacks this week in barcelona and at a seaside resort that killed at least 14 people, including one american. more than 100 others were injured. the driver of the van that plowed into crowds in barcelona may still be at large. authorities say a more ambitious attack may have been in the works. spanish officials are raising the security level higher and reinforcing security at tourist hot spots. we have two reports, starting with seth doane in barcelona. seth, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. you can see how packed with pedestrians las ramblas can get on a busy day. being here makes you appreciate how unbelievable it was that that van went careening for seven blocks before coming to a stop. the driver is still on the run. spanish police say the deadly vehicle attacks were the work of a large terrorist cell which had
5:13 am
been plotting for a long time. they believe the driver of the van that rammed pedestrians on las ramblas is still at large and have not officially released any specifics on suspects. however, leaked photos reveal some of the baby-faced suspects of terror here in spain. the youngest just 17 years old. spanish media is reporting 22-year-old may have been the van's driver and is likely the main voc us of the video from a security camera in a museum on las ramblas briefly shows the ivanka recenting past the window, even slowed down it gives a sense of the speed that he was traveling but it was in alcanar, 100 miles from barcelona, where terrorists had been planning. sources tell cbs news that the terrorists were planning a larger attack, possibly a vehicle bomb using gas canisters. all being constructed in a house just down the street. the house exploded wednesday.
5:14 am
it was leveled. it may have been the sort of bomb-making factory and shook this neighbor a block away. the force of the explosion was strong enough that one of the explosions knocked out the glass. >> yes, yes. the glass and my hearing. >> reporter: it also hurt your hearing? she still cannot believe terrorists were just down the street. the working theory, police say, is that deprived of their bomb-making material, terrorists went to plan b, the vehicle attacks, which spanish police say were rudimentary. but they were also deadly and effective. police say the explosion at that house likely prevented the terrorists from carrying out a far deadlier attack. anthony? >> seth doane reporting from barcelona, thanks. among those killed in thursday's attack was jared tucker. he was from the san francisco bay area. debra patta is in barcelona with
5:15 am
more on the victims of the terror attacks. debra, good morning. ore on the victims of the terror attacks. >> reporter: good morning. a second day of national mourning here in spain as families around the world struggle to come to terms with the loss of their loved ones. there are still many more victims lying seriously injured in hospital. the victims of the barcelona attack provide a snapshot of the global popularity of the sun-kissed tourist destination. citizens from 34 nations were killed or injured when a terrorist rammed his van into crowds of people ambling along las ramblas. amongst the dead, jared tucker, who was celebrating his wedding anniversary with his wife, heidi. this was their long-awaited honeymoon. when the attack happened, tucker's father, dan, was anxiously waiting for news back home in san francisco after seeing footage of the carnage. >> there was a person kneeling
5:16 am
with him, so we were encouraged to feel that if it was an injury as opposed to anything serious. but he wasn't moving. >> reporter: now, he is battling to come to terms with the fact that he will never see his son alive again. >> we have a fishing trip planned on the 30th, a wedding to go to on the 2nd of september, and it's just hard to understand that that's never going to happen. >> reporter: so many families have been ripped apart by this tragedy. italian bruno galotta died when he courageously threw himself between his children and the moving van. the youngest victim was a 3-year-old spanish girl. amongst the oldest, an 80-year-old italian woman. nations from around the world united in grief as they mourn the dead and pray for the injured. a number of those killed here in barcelona have still not been
5:17 am
accounted for. the families of some of those missing are making the agonizing trip to this city in the hope that they will be reunited with their loved ones. >> debora patta, thank you. this morning police in finland say the man suspected in a deadly knife attack is an 18-year-old from morocco. two were killed and six injured friday. security was tightened across the country afterward. police shot the suspect in the leg during his capture. four other people have reportedly been detained. the stabbings are being investigated as a terrorist act. in virginia, the man accused of driving his car into a crowd during the charlottesville demonstrations last weekend faces additional charges. five malicious wounding felonies were filed yesterday against james alex fields jr. he was already charged with second-degree murder in the death of a counterprotester, heather heyer. police say some of the 19 people
5:18 am
hurt suffered permanent injuries. rumors of a ku klux klan rally prompted a major counterprotest in durham, north carolina. hundreds of demonstrators gathered friday at the site where a confederate statue was toppled on monday. the klan event never happened, to the relief of many residents. police say the counterprotest was largely peaceful. organizers of a free speech rally today in boston are distancing themselves from the racist groups that demonstrated in charlottesville. counterdemonstrators are expected to attend. hundreds of police officers will be deployed to deter violence. the rally will be held at the nation's oldest city park, boston common. dimarco morgan is there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, anthony. the so-called free speech rally starts at noon not far from where we are standing and thousands of protesters are expected to atejd. you mentioned that officers are ready and are prepared. they have designated areas for both groups.
5:19 am
the alt-right and counterprotesters will be in one area. boston's police commissioner has deployed hundreds of security cameras and have a list of prohibited items. pretty much any and everything that could be used as a weapon. there are planned speakers for today's event that are sure to promote one crowd of protesters and provoke the other. we had a chance to speak with the organizer of today's event, john medler, a 23-year-old student at pittsburg state college. he understands that white supremacist groups are planning to attend today's event and rally behind his organization, but he told us he will not tolerate hate speech. >> reasonable people on both sides who are tolerant enough to not resort to violence when they hear something they disagree with. reasonabl people who are willing to actually listen to each other need to come together and start promoting that instead of letting all of these fringe
5:20 am
groups on the left and the right determine what we can and cannot say. >> reporter: you can tell that the roads are pretty much open right here behind me, but they will be closed off when the rally starts, or i should say an hour before the rally starts in an effort, again, to prevent what happened in charlottesville. the rally starts today at 12:00 noon. we'll send things back to you. >> demarco, thank you. a wildfire in central oregon has forced the evacuation of about 600 people. the fire closed access to part of a wilderness area and also foer forced the closing of a regional highway in the so-called zone of totality for monday's solar eclipse. that's where the moon completely blocks out the sun. it stretches more than 2400 miles from the pacific northwest to the southeast. about 12 million people live in these areas and about 10 million more are expected to visit on monday. visitors already started arriving in oregon days in advance. the influx of star gazers has left some rural roadways jam
5:21 am
packed. the city of carbondale, illinois, has spent years getting ready for the celestial show. the totality of the eclipse will be longer in carbondale than nearly anywhere else. the football stadium at southern illinois university will host about 15,000 people on monday. meteorologist ed curran of our chicago station wbbm tv is there with a look at your eclipse forecast and severe weather threats around the country. ed, good morning. >> well, good morning, anthony. it couldn't be a nicer morning here in carbondale. it's just gorgeous outside. we'll start with a look at our weather around the nation as far as any severe weather is concerned. as you can see we have a couple of areas where we're concerned with severe. the slight chance for severe weather, scattered storms centered in nebraska and the main threat with all these areas of severe today for damaging thunderstorm, winds and for hail. now let's take a look at temperatures across the nation. as you can see, st. louis at 92
5:22 am
degrees. south of there, everybody looks like they'll be enjoying some very warm august temperatures for today. now, that eclipse forecast. taking a look at the nation, you want to see green in your area. and as you can see around detroit and cincinnati, we have concerns for cloud cover there at the time of the ellipclipsee. up in the northeast and southeast as well. along the path of totality, the main concern for clouds is on the west coast and oregon. the rest of the path looks great. that's good news for you. if you're along the green path there, as we are standing here in carbondale outsiede saluki stadium. >> i know anthony will be there. >> we'll see you in carbondale. >> i'm very excited about this. >> i'll stop by and say hello. it is very exciting. this is a lifetime dream to see a total eclipse. it looks like the weather will cooperate here in carbondale.
5:23 am
>> meteorologist ed curran, thanks, ed. it's about 22 after the hour. now here's a look at the weather for your weekend. they have programs the smallest carbon footprint, but they're affected the most by climate change. we'll take you to one pacific island nation that's on the verge of disappearing into the ocean. and later, get those glasses ready. the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse in almost a century is just two days away. we'll see where people are gathering for the best view, and what you'll see if you aren't right in the path of the spectacle. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." hi. i'
5:24 am
5:25 am
it sounds like a deal that's too good to be true, unlimited movie tickets for the price of one.
5:26 am
we'll look at some who are trying to stop it.
5:27 am
all screen activities are linked to less happiness and all nonscreen activities are linked to more happiness. that's the research? >> yeah. so if you look at these big national surveys of teens that ask them what they do with their time, so things like homework, sports, reading, getting together with their friends, all of those nonscreen things, they're all correlated with greater happiness. you think about anything that's done with a screen. texting, social media, tv, online computer games, all of those are correlated with lower happiness. >> you talk to so many people around the country and one of the reasons you say it's important to do this is to talk to the group that's the same age so you can get it from them.
5:28 am
what was your overall takeaway when you talked to the different groups and compared them to the millennials? >> i drew on data collected from the '60s, '70s and in-depth surveys. really the smartphone is one of the keys in explaining why they are so different from millennials. for example, their mental health has really trended downwards, starting around 2012. >> should they have smartphones? >> well, that's the question, right? if you look at that link between smartphones and unhappiness or suicide risk factors or depression, what they suggest is it doesn't really harm them to spend up to an hour or even an hour and a half a day with a screen, but two hours and beyond, that's when you start to see the link to these mental health issues.
5:29 am
5:30 am
called strike three. north carolina in the record books with a combined perfect game. >> three pitchers left their teammates with little to do during a first-round game of the little league world series but they couldn't be happier about it. the trio didn't allow a single base runner yesterday as north carolina beat a south dakota team in williamsport, pennsylvania, the first perfect game in the tournament since 2008. >> congratulations. welcome back to "cbs this morning" saturday. still ahead, a history making photo is about to be snapped up at auction. but maybe the oldest existing image of an american president. we'll put the focus on the remarkable story behind it.
5:31 am
and as millions get ready to witness the solar eclipse across the country, you'll meet an amateur astronomer who spent the last year on a mission to share the stars with everyone he meets. time to though you some of this morning's headlines. "the washington post" reports that the pastor of a megachurch quit president trump's evangelical advisory council. he said he felt a, quote, conflict of values with the administration. his announcement followed the president's remarks tuesday about the charlottesville violence. bernard brooklyn's church claims to have 37,000 members. "the los angeles times" reports that a judge refused to set aside the 40-year-old sexual assault case against roman polanski. the victim in that case recently asked the judge to drop it. the court ruled that the charges can be resolved only if the film director returns to california. polanski fled the u.s. in 1978 after pleading guilty too having sex with a minor.
5:32 am
"the seattle times" reports that some seahawks players are supporting their teammates' national anthem protest. for the second consecutive game defensive end michael bennett sat out the anthem last night. but this time center justin britt stood with him. bennett asked for a white teamate to join his protest. bennett is the latest athlete to protest against racial injustice. the protest was started last season by colin kaepernick. >> colin still looking for a job right now in the nfl. "the boston globe" tracks the epic trip by two men on the area's rapid transit system. they visited every station in the sprawling t system yesterday in just under 7 1/2 hours. they think they set an all-time record. they're sending proof to "guinness book of world records" to have it verified. >> our portland affiliate says a golden retriever is being honored for sniffing out heroin. 18-month-old kenyan was digging earlier this month in his
5:33 am
family's backyard. he turned up 15 ounces of heroin worth $85,000. police awarded a ribbon to the pup and deputized him for life as a narcotics hero. deputized him for life. some people in the south pacific could become the world's first climate change refugees because of rising sea levels. about 100,000 people live in the low-lying island nation of kirobati. it's in the south pacific. >> the impending danger is the next focus of the cbsn on assignment report. seth doane learned the ocean is gradually overtaking the land. >> reporter: they have been here for centuries. 100,000 residents who occupy stretches of land as narrow as a basketball court. so narrow that waves from one side can roll straight on through to the other. half of the population is under the age of 25, and some
5:34 am
scenarios show that within their lifetimes, their home island could become unin habitable, engulfed by the rising ocean. >> it seems like paradise. >> it is a paradise, but it is a paradise that we are losing. >> reporter: this woman co-founded the first ngo in the country. >> the most serious thing is the rising of the sea. if you look around you now, you see sea walls. the tide just keep on coming and taking away our lands. >> the sea walls back here didn't seem to work. >> they don't work. they just continue to be destroyed. the sea wall is broken. >> there was a sea wall here? >> yes. >> and now it's just flooded with water. >> yes, flooded with water. >> where was your home? >> my home, right in the middle of the water. >> your home was there? >> yes. >> it's just been washed away? >> yes, washed away.
5:35 am
>> so you would have been walking through people's homes right now? >> yes, yes. >> who do you blame? >> i know they are going to hate me. >> that's okay. >> america. united states. >> you can see all of seth doane's report on the latest edition of "cbsn: on assignment." it airs monday night. for movie goers, it's just the ticket. a month worth of films for about the cost of a single admission. ahead we'll look at what's the deal and who's against it. first,he's a look at the weather for your weekend.

coming to terms with alzheimer's disease. up next in our "morning rounds" medical news, a doctor on how the simple act of communication can go a long way toward helping patients and caregivers. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." why do people put why does your tummy go "grumbily, grumbily, grumbily"? no more questions for you! ouph, that milk in your cereal was messing with you, wasn't it? try lactaid, it's real milk without that annoying lactose. good, right? -mmm, yeah. lactaid. the milk that doesn't mess with you.

tso when we had him, we bought one of those he washing machines

5:39 am
time now for "morning rounds," our look at the medical news of the week. this morning we'll be talking about a disease, the impact of which is felt around the country. >> according to the alzheimer's association, more than 5 million americans are living with the disease. that's one in ten adults aged 65 and older. and it's the sixth leading cause of death in the country. we're joined by dr. devi, a neurologist and the director of the new york memory and health aging services to discuss some of the challenges behind communicating with alzheimer's patients. good morning. >> good morning. >> this is not just about the patient, it's everyone surrounding them that's
5:40 am
affected. what are some of the things that people can keep in mind? >> you know, i always think of alzheimer's as an illness of the family and of the community, so it's not -- it's very much an illness that impacts everyone around the patient, including the patient themselves. so the communication has to be something that's thought about. patients have to always not -- they should not feel patronized. so the common thinking so the common thinking that, well, treat the person like you treat a child totally doesn't apply. they're adults. they're very capable people and in some areas still exceptionally functional. so you want to be able to address those issues. you want to always maintain a sense of compassion but at the same time be able to direct them in the right way. >> so when you're in a situation, for example, when a patient says something that's not right, how -- do you correct them? what do you do?
5:41 am
>> i've been working with alzheimer's since 1994 and there's hardly ever a time when not correcting the patient caused dangerous consequence. so usually allow them the considerate comfort of their error, so let them just think whatever it is that they're thinking, unless there's a real reason to correct. because when you're correcting, what the patient may hear is something along the lines of you're stupid. that's not your intent, but because they have a sense perhaps of reduced confidence, anything that you do that may sound even vaguely critical, even though that's not what you want it to be, can be taken in a negative way. >> when you look at being independent and ensuring that they're safe, to how do you balance that? >> again, and, you know, it's -- even though we hear stories of patients with alzheimer's who are lost, for the most part patients are able to find their way home.
5:42 am
so a big area of independence is being able to leave home when you want to leave home, to meet with people when you want to meet with them, and to d what you want to do when you want to do it. sometimes that can be a problem, for example, if the person -- yes, wakes up in middle of night and gets dressed because they think it's time to go to work. in a situation like that, don't tell them you retired from work ten years ago. don't tell them it's the middle of the night. say today's a national holiday. there's no -- you don't have to get dressed today so why don't you go back to bed? >> sounds like it can be stressful for the caregivers. >> very stressful, and women bear the brunt of care giving burden around the world. and particularly with alzheimer's disease. and spouses are particularly affected, depressed and isolated, so what i usually tell family members who are involved in this is not criticize
5:43 am

more changes at the white house as president trump fires steve bannon. word that the white house chief strategist was forced out came as the president attended national security meetings at camp david. this morning the president tweeted a message thanking bannon for his role in the campaign. he also includes a dig at hillary clinton. >> reporter: the news of steve bannon's ouster was quickly followed by the announcement he would be returning to brit bart, a site he himself described as a platform for the alt-right. the white house says the decision was a mutual one between bannon and the president's chief of staff, general john kelly. kelly has been tasked with bringing order to the chaotic administration and cbs news has learned president trump was increasingly irritated by media coverage of bannon as the mastermind of the oval office. the final nail in the coffin for bannon, though, was likely a series of on the record comments he made this past week in which
6:02 am
he contradicted the president by saying there is no military solution to north korea. he also openly relished undermining his administration colleagues with whom he disagrees. bannon now says he is jacked up and will fight for the president from the outside. apparently taking on corporate e loots, the media, and those on capitol hill. anthony? >> errol barnett, thanks. for more, we're pleased to welcome joshua green, the author of the best-selling book "devil's bargain" about the inner workings of the trump campaign, and he's also a national correspondent for bloomberg business week. late friday he conducted the first interview with steve bannon since his white house departure. in that interview, bannon said he's going to war for mr. trump. joshua, good morning. >> good morning. >> what exactly did he say? >> the big question about bannon's exit was would he turn on president trump and go after him. a lot of kefbs including some in the white house were worried about that. bannon said he's going to war for trump, not against trump,
6:03 am
against his enemies on capitol hill, in the mainstream media, and in the business world, in corporate america. >> along those lines, who has the most to lose now that steve bannon is out of the white house? >> i think the people that bannon deriseively refers to as the white house democrats. gary cohn, steve mnuchin and jared kushner, with whom bannon carried on a very bitter struggle throughout his time in the white house. i think bannon from the outside is going back to breitbart news, the website he ran before he joined trump, and will resume his attacks on republicans that he feels aren't faithful enough to the agenda that trump got elected on. >> how did he characterize his ouster? >> he characterized it as amicable. he said that his one-year anniversary working for trump was just a couple of days ago, that he never planned on staying for long. that this had been discussed with chief of staff john kelly,
6:04 am
with the president. it was going to happen a week earlier but the charlottesville tragedy cropped up. they decided to wait. but now everyone agreed that it was time for him to leave. other people said he had been fired and pushed out, but bannon denied that. >> there was an interesting quote from "the weekly standard," he told them the trump presidency that was pot f -- fought for is over. what do you make of that? >> i think what he was saying, and he and i didn't discuss this directly, was that he had great plans for trump in the white house when they won and thought that he was going to set off a political realignment, that the government in the country would be remade in the image that trump talked about on the campaign, and trump as president has consistently failed to carry that off. so i think bannon views his departure as a way of getting trump's agenda back on track and trying to fight these same fights from the outside rather than from the inside. >> "the washington post" and some others in their reporting on bannon's exit have said your
6:05 am
book may have played a role in his ouster, that the president in effect didn't like the credit that bannon was given for the campaign victory. >> well, i say in the book that i don't think that donald trump would be president today without steve bannon because bannon was really the guy to pioneered this brand of nationalist populism that got trump elected, and bannon also spent years working behind the scenes to tear down hillary clinton, even before he joined trump's campaign. if there's one thing we know about donald trump, it's that he doesn't like to share credit with other people. i had a white house official tell me last week the fact that bannon's name appears on my book cover before trump's name was something that deeply upset the president. >> it would come as little surprise i think to anybody that has seen some of the reactions we've seen from the president before. >> yeah. and sometimes it's on twitter, sometimes it's at a press conference, but he can get very unhappy. >> joshua green, thank you. >> thanks for having me. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" on cbs, tim scott

6:14 am
all we have to do is look up. >> do you think the time is right to be united? >> i hope so. i think we need all the good news we can get. >> reporter: to make sure people experience this unifying moment safely, gary has been handing out eclipse glasses like these. now, he's given away already 7,000 of them. it's important to have them on as the moon crosses over the sun forming a krcresent. but once it passes, you can take them off and take it all in. >> to look at what the eclipse will look like for millions of americans, we turn to lonnie quinn from wcbs tv. >> well, this is going to be one of the great mother nature events. as we get closer to the eclipse, we have set up our own little model solar system right here in studio 57 to explain what a solar eclipse is. we know that the earth revolves around the sun and the moon revolves around the earth. but twice a year they fall into
6:15 am
alignment and you're going to get some kinds of eclipse when this happens, be it a lunar eclipse or solar eclipse. but the solar eclipse is the big show. this little moon will block out the light from the sun. even though the sun is 400 times larger to the moon, the moon is 400 times closer to the earth. as a result, the sun and the moon look like they're about the same size when you look up at the sky. now, when the sun hits the moon and casts its shadow on the earth, you get two different types of shadows. most will see the penumbra where a portion of the sun will still be visible, but a select few of you will get the umbra and that's where the moon completely blocks out the light from the sun. it is called totality and the area where it hits is known is the path of totality. if you are in that path, you will literally see daytime turn into nighttime. the temperatures will drop, stars will even be visible in
6:16 am
the daytime hours. this will last anywhere from a minute and a half to three minutes. it's the only time that you do not need the protective glasses. now in this medium gray-shaded area, this is an area where 90% of the sun will be covered by the moon. it includes cities like seattle, denver, atlanta, and then north and south of this line is an area where say three-quarters of the sun will be covered and that includes places like san francisco and philadelphia. it is one of the solar systems greatest sights. get out there and enjoy it. back to you, anthony and dana. >> lonnie, thank you. so cool. we'll have special coverage of the eclipse this monday afternoon starting at 1:00 eastern, 12:00 central right here on cbs. from the stand-up stage to "saturday night live" and most recently broadway. emmy award-winning writer and comedian john melany has no shortage of outlets from his brand of off-beat comedy.

30 years old. i was just talking to my mom the other week. i found out when i was 10, veronica was 13. >> it was his one-hour comedy central special "new in town" that cemented his status as a stand-up comic. the performance helped him earn his own tv show on fox. though the self-titled mulaney was cancelled after just 13 episodes. >> ultimately i think the best thing that came from it was i was able to say i thought i wanted that and i don't want that. but it helped me recalibrate what i wanted to do. sometimes big ole complicated failures take a while to unpack. >> the unpacking included hitting the road, starting a tour that became the basis of a netflix special, fittingly titled "the comeback kid." >> no, really, and i don't like confrontation because i've never been in a fight before, though maybe you could tell that from the first moment i walked out on stage. >> then he reunited with friend
6:25 am
and mentor, nick kroll, to develop "oh hello" playing rumpled new yorkers. first a sketch, it then made the unlikely transition from viral video to broadway. >> it has a wonderful aroma too. >> oh, yes. >> well, what we do is it's mayonnaise and ton tuna fish. we prepare it and put it under the lights at 5:00 p.m. >> you were a week into previews when we spoke. you really weren't sure how it was going to be received at the time. >> no, no, we weren't. by the time we got to "oh hello" we both entered it saying we enjoy this so much. we want people to live it but we don't really care that much what they say. if someone had written a review saying "oh hello" is stupid, we would have said, yeah, it is. you're absolutely is. that people liked it was extremely cool. >> what's next, john? what do you want to do after
6:26 am
this tour is done? >> i don't make plans anymore. so i'm not living minute to minute. a professor here at georgetown once said that. we were in a scene study workshop and someone said i think my character is just living day by day. and he said well, that's interesting, you know, mulaney lives minute to minute. i always liked that. >> his current tour will end next year with three nights at radio city music hall in new york where he will be filming his next one-hour special. if you missed "oh hello" on broadway, it's on netflix and is very funny. >> it's hysterical. i watched it with my son and cannot stop laughing. >> those characters hit a little too close to home. >> we see them all the time here. >> i'll come for the tuna fish sandwich. thank you. super bowl winning athlete martellus bennett, inspiring kids on the field isn't enough. we'll go behind the scenes as the head of a multimedia company
6:27 am
aimed at empowering young people. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday." were you a fan of r ray donovan before? >> yeah. i loved the way it was filmed. it was so twisted and all the actors are so good. they have really assembled a group of really strong, strong actors. so, yeah, i was a fan. >> you don't have a tv, but tv has changed everything, right? shows like this? >> there are so many platforms. certainly for women there seemed to be so many better roles. there always have been soap operas where women were in command of the world, but i think that there's more shows that have these kind of platforms, don't have to appeal to this massive demographic that your old-time shows had to so they can be a little riskier. you saw how many times i'm bleeped just in this tiny little -- so that's changed.
6:28 am
>> that's good, right? >> also people can watch things that they save up and then they binge on watching them altogether. you have more control. i don't know, i hadn't watched tv in a long time and then i saw something that just blew my mind and i was like, oh, i've missed. >> you missed a lot actually. >> so much has been happening, who knew. >> but think about you, you seem to have started, look at thelma and louise, people identified you with a whole sense of i'm susan and i know who i am and i'm uncompromising, both in your politics and your lifestyle. has that simply gotten even more so as you've gone from decade to decade? >> i think that i've always had a need for justice that was inexplicable that started back in the days, the late '60s and '70s when you actually saw on television what was going on with vietnam.
6:29 am
6:30 am
as the nfl season gets ready to kick off, yes, it's almost time, one of the league's top stars continues to inspire kids far off the playing field. last season tight end martellus bennett helped lead the new england patriots to that incredible super bowl victory. now he's suiting up with the green bay packers. >> and at the same time, he's rolling out a football-themed comic book, just part of his ongoing effort to spark creativity in kids. jan crawford has the story. >> for martellus bennett, and it is a touchdown! >> reporter: over nine seasons, martellus bennett has established himself as one of the top tight ends in the nfl. >> reaching for the end zone is martellus bennett. >> reporter: and when the
6:31 am

6:32 am
where he believes it's needed. >> basically i'm the black walt disney. >> reporter: this summer he visited with kids from chicago's south side, where more than 400 people have been killed so far this year, a place not too different from the houston neighborhood where bennett grew up. >> where we come from, they roll you a basketball, give you a football and say good luck. they don't want to see more black ceos or coming up with tech ideas. >> reporter: bennett told the group football was actually his plan b and while many of his classmates were getting in trouble, he was focusing on the future. >> when i look at those kids, i see myself. i see my friends that i grew up with. i see the crowd that was at my school. hopefully when they look at me, they see themselves and what they can become as well. >> reporter: the imagination agency has already come out with one animated movie and is now working on turning bennett's first book, "hey, a.j., it's saturday" based on his daughter into a cartoon series. a second book in the a.j. a second book in the series
6:33 am
comes out later this year. there's also line of children's shoes in the works in collaboration with the chicago-based company bucket feet. proceeds will go to help build a playground for bennett's hometown of houston. >> people expect me to be good at football. i of been good at football since i was a kid. they expect that. people don't expect you to write a children's book or ache man app or a movie where kids can relate and it's really good. the great thing about football is it gives you an impact where you can stand on. some guys shout from it, some whisper. >> he's using his platform to make a statement about what matter, long after he leaves the field. for ""cbs this morning" saturday," jan crawford. >> i've heard so many athlete, they told me, i want to use my platform, they don't all get to do it. i love to see what he's doing. >> now here's a look at the weather for your weekend.

6:38 am
>> people started calling at midnight. >> you're getting people from where? >> everywhere, all over the world, all over the country. >> all over the world? >> mm-hmm. >> does that seem bizarre to you? >> yeah. it's making kind of no sense to me. >> so what happened? >> i think that i found who i was supposed to be. >> i'd like an eggplant and summer squash relish. >> her famous multi-course meals which change every night and look like a supper club an hour south of bangor, maine, usually last three to four hours. on the night we visited, the meal included a selection of cheeses, pea soup with crab salad and smoked ricotta, an elevated wedge salad with bacon and buttermilk, hake as the main course and frozen custard with berries to finish. >> it was divine. >> this is sandy stream?
6:39 am
>> yes. this is where i used to play and ice skate. >> at first erin french grew up with far different plans. >> i grew up here in freedom and ran away with big dreams of becoming a doctor. it didn't work out. i became pregnant unexpectedly and -- >> in college. >> in college, yeah. dropped out. which was really terrifying. i was supposed to be like the perfect child. i was supposed to be a model student and life took me in a different direction. came home as a single mom and started working in my dad's diner again because i had those skills. i started working there when i was younger. and started to hone my visions of food and figure out what i was supposed to do with my life. >> french got married, but as the marriage fell apart, so did she. >> i found challenges of anxiety and depression just through the struggles of the marriage. and while trying to raise my son, between alcohol and
6:40 am
prescription drugs i checked into rehab bause i was dying. i mean my body was literally falling apart, i could feel it. i could feel that i wasn't going to survive. >> for a time after, she traveled around maine and cooked out of an old air stream trailer. she opened this lost kitchen in freedom in 2014, in a hydropowered mill. there is one room with 40 seats. >> oysters with cucumber and dill. >> it's not just about the food, it's about the way that we make people feel when they're here. the only way i know how to serve meals and to create a space is to make it feel like it's my home. i think people are starving to feel loved and to feel cared for really well, and that's what we do when they come here. >> food is still pretty important, though. >> always is. has to be. >> how would you classify your cooking? >> you know, it's very special. it's ingredient focused.
6:41 am
i never write a menu and try to confuse you with foods. i just tell you what the ingredients are, because that's stars. and i feel like it's my job not to manipulate them and not to overdo them, but just to make them the best version of whatever those ingredients are. >> old school is a term that gets used too much and becomes a cliche, but you're old school. >> i think so. all our reservations are done by pencil and paper. we just got a website a few months ago and it's always been really simple. i look at the world in a simple way. >> the lost kitchen is not on open table. >> no. if i did that, it would take away someone's job here who's making a living being here in this community. we thought about that. a lot of people do think they have a lot of ideas of how i should do things. >> what else do they say? >> i should be open more days. i should be open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, go longer in the year. i should charge more. >> but you know with this attention it's going to get, there's going to be even more
6:42 am
people saying this is how you should do things. >> yeah, it's terrifying. >> for now, the lost kitchen is mostly a family affair. sometimes french gets her son to pitch in, but it's her mom who really helps keep the place humming, helping in the dining room and the wine shop downstairs. her dad, the one who taught her cooking basics all those years ago, sold his diner in 2006. >> my dad didn't understand why i was trying -- why was i trying to make it my own? why couldn't i just make it the way he taught me to make it. make it this way. you can make money making clam rolls this way. >> make a burger, pancakes, whatever. >> yeah. he didn't understand that. he's like why are you doing this? people don't care. they just wanti to be fed. take their money and move on. >> did he ever understand that? >> no. but i think he's getting it right now. >> this is the greatest joy, i have to tell you. >> for "cbs this morning
