allegations many months ago when they became aware of them. and whether the chief of staff was truthful in explaining how he handled the situation. major garrett is at the white house. major, good morning. >> good morning. president trump has been publicly supportive of his former top aide rob porter, though we are told in private the president has referred to porter as, quote, a sick puppy. there's now a concerted effort to shield chief of staff john kelly from the fallout by portraying porter as someone who deceived him and others. >> john kelly's doing an outstanding job. >> reporter: white house officials threw their support behind chief of staff john kelly sunday hoping to counter reports the president was considering replacing him. >> he has full confidence. >> reporter: budget director mick mulvaney answered charges the white house failed to take domestic abuse allegation seriously. >> i think what you saw happen this week was completely reasonable and normal. >> reporter: but the white house put our statements of support for porter several hours after

the photos of abuse surfaced. kelly was told by white house counsel don mcgahn in november that porter's security clearance was held up because of allegations from two ex-wives. mcgahn learned of the charges. friday night, a white house speechwriter david sorensen resigned after a news report detailed abuses alleged by his ex-wife. sorensen told cbs news he was the one who was abused. in a tweet on saturday, president trump seemed to side with the accused. people's lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. writing in "time" magazine, porter's second wife, jenny willoughby, said the president's words were, quote, meant to imply that i am a liar that abuse is something to be questioned and doubted. >> we certainly wish him well. >> reporter: mr. trump's defense of porter in the oval office last week brought this retort from joe biden. >> that's like saying that ax

your family. the lawsuit also claims weinstein's assistants had copies of a document known as the bible. which detailed how to arrange his sexual activity. some of weinstein's drivers were allegedly required to keep condoms and ewreck tooil dysfunction injections in the car at all times for him. weinstein's attorney released a statement sunday night saying many of the allegations against weinstein are without merit. the ag's office says it sued the weinstein company in part because the studio may soon be bought and the state wants to ensure that victims will be compensated and employees protected. the weinstein company board said it's disappointed the ag felt it necessary to file a complaint, adding many of the allegations relating to the board are inaccurate. norah. >> jericka, thank you. eyewitnesses of a deadly helicopter crash in the grand canyon believe strong winds may have been to blame. one witness hook it shortly after the chopper hit the ground. three british tourists were

7:11 am
that case. >> there are too many helicopters in too close of a confined space which is just a recipe for disaster. we've been thinking that grand canyon tours need to be closely regulated for a long time. >> reporter: again, it's still too early to determine what caused this crash. we did reach out to papillon about those other accidents. they did release a statement about saturday's crash. they say their top priority is the care and need of the passengers and their employees right now. they also said they're working very closely with the national transportation safety board and their investigation. >> those details are just heart wrenching. mireya, thank you. the flu epidemic is suspected of causing two more deathings. a 5-year-old in new york had flu-like symptoms before she died saturday. and 24-year-old jenna libidinsky from las vegas died from the flu last week. she reportedly visited doctors five times for help.

>> and we expect to learn new details today about the trump administration's proposal to privatize the international space station. the white house plan would reportedly end government funding for the station after 2024 and turn the operation over to the private sector. the plan is expected to face stiff opposition in congress. the u.s. has spent nearly 100 billion dollars to build and operate the space station. first on "cbs this morning," an olympic swimmer is speaking out about alleged abuse she suffered from a former team usa coach. ariana kukors told police sean hutchison sexually abused her and took thousands of nude photos of her when she was a minor. in an essay she alleges hutchison groom and manipulated her from age 13. she said the abusive relationship spanned nearly a decade. >> reporter: homeland security decades searched hutchison's home in seattle. they opened an investigation with washington state
7:33 am
authorities but he has not been charged with a crime. the former olympic coach recently stepped down as ceo of king aquatics club after kukors went public. he wrote, quote, i absolutely deny having any sexual or romantic relationship with her before she was old enough to legally make those decisions for herself. prior to that time i did nothing to groom her. ariana kukors and her attorney robert allard are here. good morning. >> good morning. >> thank you so much for being here. ariana, you said you would never share your story. why are you sharing it now? >> i never realized how important it was speaking my truth to my healing process. it really has been a journey in so many ways. i began therapy in october because i had reached a new -- a low point and i realized that while i have an amazing husband and amazing life and amazing
7:34 am
support system, i hadn't fully faced what had happened to me. for so long writing what i wrote on friday and publishing it was a huge step in my healing processing, being able to put words to what had happened to me and i don't think i realized until i published it friday how important it was to spread that message. not only for myself to finally stand up and speak my truth and say what happened to me, but the outpouring of messages i've received the last few days have been so impactful and i never thought that i would be here, sitting at this table. >> ariana, let's talk about that. when did this abuse start? how old were you? >> when he began grooming me, he started coaching me when i was 13 years old. i would say the grooming began immediately. there's so many definitions. how i understand it is the process that a predator takes to first psychologically take over control over you and then perhaps it turns into a physical
7:35 am
relationship. >> how did he do that? >> in many ways. i said this in my essay. every single day we had to shake his hand. it seems like a simple nice gesture, but it's getting contact with that person. shaking their hand and looking in their eyes. asking about things not only from your swimming career, but what's life like with your family, what are you doing at school? what are you doing this weekend? it's creating this relationship where you rely on this person for everything and you go to him for everything. so as he guided me through this relationship of manipulation and control, he fully had control over me and prepared me for each step. >> swimming is a one-on-one sport. the better you do, you're rising together. talk about that relationship. this isn't a team thing. this is just the two of you. >> yes. swimming is known to be an individual sport and you spend so much time. so when there were private meetings going on behind a closed hotel room door, you know, someone might look at that and think, oh, they're discussing race tactic it is or
7:36 am
strategy or how to get better. that is inappropriate and those kinds of conversations should not be taking place behind closed doors. >> how is it he took thousands of nude photos of crow? >> the pictures i sent some to him as well. he took pictures of me in the locker room. >> were you a minor then? >> yes. and the pictures went on over a decade. >> you told us a story in 2009 you set the world record. >> yes. >> and that kind of grooming and that relationship that goes on, why that continues. >> well, i think one of the hardest pieces maybe for someone to understand is how this took place for so long. this process of gaining control over somebody. i've talked to so many parents and i've heard from so many parents in the last few days. we have conversations with children about don't talk to strangers. your privates are your own. they should not be touched by other people. the conversation i hope they
7:37 am
have is what happens when there's a person that your parents see as a voice of authority, that your family trusts, your community is praising, what happens when that person using that power and takes advantage of you? that's an important conversation and dialogue that i hope we can have. i feel the most vulnerable i've ever felt in my life this moment but i'm lifted up because of the messages i've received in the last few days for parents to say thank you for creating this dialogue between me and my kids. because of you i can go home and understand what this looks like and how to talk about this with your partner. >> ariana, in talking to yourself, you said you didn't recognize yourself who you were. imagine another girl in that position. what should she hear from you? >> the message i want to send is it doesn't matter what your abuse is. there are so many people who said my story is not as bad.
7:38 am
there's no such story as bad or less bad. if you're being abused or somebody is taking advantage of you, no matter how you choose to find your voice, you will be heard. there are so many amazing things that are happening in this world today that are open and receptive to these conversations. i want these people to know that they are amazing, that they don't have to rely on these predators, these people who take advantage of young people and abuse a relationship so horrifically. >> you found yourself in this position today because of your love for swimming. >> mm-hmm. >> do you still love the sport? do you still swim? >> yes, i love the sport in every way that you can imagine. i've received so many messages from teammates and coaches and friends an people who grew up watching my career. i said this in my story. that black line, that space that you talk to and eventually that line starts talking back. i love swimming and i'm not here to necessarily share my story. what i'm here is to prevent this from happening to the next person who is trying to chase their dreams, who's trying to
7:39 am
show up as their best self every single day, because you don't have to rely on a man, another human being who wants to take responsibility for your success, who wants to be there every step of the way. and one of the biggest, biggest things that these predators do is they isolate you. they single you out. the things he told me constantly was you're the most impressive person i've ever met. i see things in you that your sisters don't see and your parents don't see. because of that isolation they put you on a pedestal. they put you there so nobody can help you. you don't have to. surround yourself. my tribe of people, my husband who i'm bringing through this with me, he has been my rock and he has showed up for me every single day because he believes in this message. he believes that it's important not only for the family that we hope to create, but for the next family, for every single person
7:40 am
who has the opportunity to do this to somebody else. >> well, ariana, it will make a difference. abuse fosters in silence and you're breaking that silence. thank you so much for being here and sharing your story. rob, thank you for being here alongside her. thank you. >> i appreciate it. >> we have more news this morning. the newly revealed royal wedding plans. you're watching "cbs this morning." let's go. bye, mom. thanks for breakfast, mom. you look fantastic today, honey. with quality ingredients like roasted hazelnuts and cocoa, nutella is sure to bring a smile to breakfast time. nutella, spread the happy.

follow through. i'm dx with norah o'donnell and bianna doll la gre ga. staff secretary rob porter who quit last week after his ex-wives accused him of abusing them. senior officials said yesterday that kelly responded appropriately to the allegations against porter. they say kelly's job is safe. a close ally of the president tells cbs news mr. trump was blindsided by the allegations and called porter a sick puppy. >> those comments are at odds with mr. trump's remarks over the weekend and his other statements about men accused of misconduct against women. the president said on friday it's important to remember that porter says he's innocent. and he tweeted on saturday, quote, people's lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. is there no suching that i any longer as due process. in november the president defended alabama senate candidate roy moore who rejected allegations of pursuing teenage girls when he was in his 30s.
8:03 am
>> roy moore denies it. that's all i can say. he denies it. by the way he totally denies it. >> the president also backed former fox news host bill o'reilly in april following a "new york times" report that five women received settlements after claiming o'reilly harassed them. mr. trump told the "times" quote he is a good person and i don't think bill would do anything wrong. o'reilly calls allegations of harassment unfounded. the president defended o'reilly's old boss roger ailes from sexual harassment accusations in july of 2016. >> all of a sudden they say these horrible things about him, it's very sad. he's a very good person. >> ailes resigned from fox news though he denied the allegations until his death a year later. in the middle of this uproar the white house is unveiling a 2019 budget proposal today. the $4 trillion plan projects about a $1 trillion deficit.

it asks for $200 billion in federal funds for infrastructure spending. the president wants nearly $17 billion to fight the opioid epidemic and $23 billion for border security including $18 billion for a wall along the mexico border. congress is shifting focus to immigration reform starting with the procedural vote in the senate today. the president spelled out three priorities over the weekend, securing the border, ending so-called chain migration, within families, and stopping the visa lottery. the president did not mention daca, programs he intends to phase out. it protected young immigrants brought to the u.s. illegally as children. ed o'keefe is a congressional reporter for "the washington post." good morning ed. >> good morning. >> happy monday. >> happy monday. >> we're glad to have you here. what's happening in the senate with this immigration bill? >> they're going back to the future. they will do things the way they're supposed dond the way they used to do it years ago. mitch mcconnell snatched a bill off the shelf last week, something random that would pass
8:05 am
if they brought it up on its own and said we will use it as the shell and you can change this bill with immigration proposals so long as it gets at least 60 votes of support because you have to clear those cloture rules, and at this point, we're expecting democrats, republicans, separately, democrats and republicans together, to bring forward a bunch of proposals and see what, if anything, can get 60 votes in the senate. >> like the old days because the senate is doing its job figuring out what the legislation is, not just precooking something from the white house. >> exactly. >> if something gets 60 votes in the house could it get a majority of republican votes in the house. >> that is the big question and bedevilling members this week as they sort this out. paul ryan has said we'll hold a vote in the house so long as it's on something president trump supports. we know he has those four things he would like to do, 1.8 million dreamers legalized, border security money, changes to family based migration and ending the lottery. republicans have proposed that.
8:06 am
it probably won't pass. at that point they have to sit there and go, well what can we take away or add to it to get the 60 and then hope that the president likes it and then hope that the house will vote on it? >> what on the substance does the house not like? >> in the trump proposal? they like the trump -- republicans like the trump proposal. the problem is democrats don't and there may be a fair number of republicans who don't want to vote for it because they have concerns with the chain migration issues. you know, it's just one of those tricky ones we don't know how it's going to end. >> they're running up against the march 5th deadline and arbitrary deadline set by the president. ne plans on possibly extending that? >> so the white house has said repeatedly the deadline is march 5th. but courts are still thinking about this and what exactly should be the scope of the program. so homeland security still has to accept visa renewals and still protecting it. it's conveevble the program could continue through the summer. rob porter and the sexual abuse domestic violence
8:07 am
allegations that have been leveled there, what oversight are some of those in congress saying they want? especially when it comes to the security clearance process? >> democrats last week it was like every hour there was another democrat calling for some kind of an investigation or questions to be answered. the problem is the white house sends sends most to the delete folder. >> you have a dozen aides who don't have permanent security clearances, one of which the president's son-in-law who might be reading the presidential daily brief every day. >> yeah. and republicans so far have refused to really take up the issue at all, saying that, you know, this is something for the fbi to deal with, they go with the argument that folks in the administration made over the weekend that there's a with backlog and they're dealing with it but at this point, given that you have somebody who is accused of domestic violence, handling the sensitive information -- >> they're going to keep from one republican on the senate intelligence committee about that? >> not publicly. we know privately they have concerns with this, absolutely. the question is, you know, what are they going to do and stop him? they say look, these people work at the pleasure of the president, if he wants them to
8:08 am
work for him, there's very little we can do to stop him. >> infrastructure bill dead on arrival? >> yes. about as stalled as the traffic out on the street. >> not going anywhere. >> thank you so much. great to see you. the war in syria is spilling beyond its borders and raising tensions between israel and iran. an israeli fighter jet went down in israel this week after coming under anti-aircraft fire. the plane was involved in air strikes on iranian targets inside syria. seth doane is in israel at the site of the crash. seth, good morning. >> good morning. this is where that israeli f-16 crashed. the pilots ejected and survived but the first time an israeli military jet had been shot out of the sky since the early 1980s. shockingly, it was struck down inside israeli air space by a syrian anti-aircraft missile. a military intelligence chief we spoke with today said he worries this could be the start of a new phase in this war that has
8:09 am
ground on for seven years in syria where we see a direct confrontation between iran and israel. over the weekend, israel saw what has long worried about iran allegedly using a base from inside syria to launch a drone into israeli territory. israelis shot the drone out of the sky once it entered israel's territory and then launched f-16s in retaliation to target both syrian and iranian positions inside syrian. then it appears russian president vladimir putin stepped in to try to calm things down. the russians would like to see this war come to a close and not enter a new phase and kaes late. john? >> seth doane in northern israel, thanks. a minnesota family is rooting for two different hockey teams in the winter olympics. dana jacobson shows us the sibling rivalry. >> two sisters sharing a unique version of the olympic dream. one plays hockey for team usa the other for south korea. coming up on cbs this morning, we'll take you on their

8:18 am
on the new industry and now it' >> was that willful blissfulness or did they just not know that it could be abused by not only fake news but people who could become adiked to it. >> it's super complicated. the more it grows, the more money they make. but also a lot of the problems come because it is at its core a democratic forum. it isn't for malice. it's because they set it for everyone to look the same. down the line that has a huge effect on society. >> talk about some of the things you were able to uncover. first of all the topics surrounding facebook? >> what happened is there was a story that ran that said trending topics is biased against republicans and so facebook reacted very strongly to that. they said, no, we can't have that out there. first they said the story is
8:19 am
false. then they invited all of these republicans to come out to men low park to meet. but what lots and lots of people told us is that after that moment they became really worried about any action that could be seen as against republicans or against trump and that is partly why fake news which mostly favored truck and the russian operations which favored trump went unnoticed that. was one of our biggest takeaways. >> you talked about the meeting with republicans an they have strategized to bore them as much as they could to get them off topic or get away from the tougher questions they were asking. you say they found no systemic bay y bias. what did they do? >> they had people who helped plan the meeting. they not only wanted to bore the republicans who came in. they wanted to get republicans in from different categories and not make a unified front.
8:20 am
after that meeting happened they started to look in and they started to look into their news feed. they started to look at some of the biggest questions. does facebook drag us apart, look more partisan, favor outreach. ultimately they began those investigations. they didn't pursue it very hard an then they started to look more closely at what the algorithms were doing. >> in the piece you describe mark zuckerberg as not sleeping at night, remorseful and truly as having been altered. >> yeah. >> how has he been altered? >> if you look at his answers for the past three months, he would say if there's a problem with society, people will use facebook. that was his answer. now he says people need to look at facebook as time well spent. we need to help local news. he's really turning around all these issues. >> nick thompson, congratulations on all of your

year's winter olimb pilks woke up late for the day's event but red gerard woke up. he reportedly fell asliev watching netflix friday and didn't wake up when he was supposed to at 6:00 a.m. his roommate, good for him, woke him up at 6:20. he had to borough his roommate's jacket when he couldn't find his own. he still managed to get it all together. >> that's what happens when you're 17 years old. this morning we take a look at the city of stockton as part of our ongoing series "american voices." in 2012 stockton filed for bankruptcy and was one of forbes' most miserable cities in america. stockton is now ranked second healthiest but more than one-fourth lives below the poverty line.
8:33 am
>> mayor tubs wbs was elected a age 26. he's the first african-american mayor. mayor tubbs is addressing his town's poverty with an innovative and controversial program to give stockton residents $500 a month to fight economic hardship. he's with us now. good morning. >> good morning and thanks so much for having me. >> i know your city has struggled with income inequality and basic necessities. >>. >> doctor king before he passed, even richard knicks p. the idea is especially in california, one in two cannot afford emergencies. people are working harder and harder only to fall further behind. so a group called economic security project was looking for funding. given the challenges and also given the resilience, i thought it would be a good fit for us. >> you know the first stop of the krit simple is give people money and they won't work. it doesn't innocent fies them.
8:34 am
it's a welfare program. >> the research says something different. there was a study done that found $4,000 to $6,000 a year did good things. education rose, drug use went down and there was no labor market impact. so we're hoping to see something similar in stockton. >> there's a wide span of supporters from bernie sanders to branson. it started in august? >> august. we have a director who will work with the community, working out the kinks, and hopefully by the time school starts, we're starting. >> what are some of the criteria it will have if you get the basic income. what are some of the thing kbrouts in the program to avoid the criticism? >> the idea is to do it. the second tenent will be no strings attached.
8:35 am
we trust they'll make the best decision understanding everyone's not going to do it right, i guess. >> is there a penalty if you don't do it right? >> no. it's $500, no strings attached. the idea is to have a conversation about the economic system of the country but i like stories on how much $500 can do whether it's a difference for a mother who can pay for child support to get back into the worse force or for an artist. it's about stories. >> stockton is not far from silicon valley. why hasn't it reaped some of the benefits and that huge amount of wealth in that area? >> we're working on it. oftentimes we've been so tunnel vision because we're close. we're also worlds away. the diversity, income. just this month we announced a $20 million score arship
8:36 am
program. >> you've had quite the economic recovery in 2012 when you just graduated from college. let me ask you because the president has been touting a lot of his initiatives over the past year. have you seen that come to fruition in your city? have you seen your citizens reap the benefits of what the president said he's been doing over the past year? >> we're hoping to reap the benefits from the opportunities program. but honestly a lot of time has been spent quelling fears especially around immigration. for your the past year we've been having a conversation about values. a majority of our population are immigrants or children of immigrants. so when we're talking about taking away from families, it cause as huge ripple effect in the community. we've been feeling those. we're a precede diversity. >> what has been the reaction from the attorney general, jeff sessions to threaten to punish stockton for your immigration policy? >> which is interesting. the letter talked about jails
8:37 am
and the city doesn't operate jails. the county does. swenlt a letter back nicely and said we're a city of immigrants. we're not going to stop and frisk someone based on immigration status. if you want, you can talk to the sheriff who's in charge of the jails in the city of stockton. we respond when needed. >> talk about the ripple effects in terms of what the president is saying to this immigrant community. >> it cause as lot of feefrmt then we see children aren't going to school, for example or students reporting crimes or people not engaging with government in a way. for that to happen in stockton is bad. a majority of our population are either foreign born or their parents are, meaning that that is our community and if they're not a part of it, we don't have the civic life we need. >> let me ask you another question. some people are calling it cash for criminals, which is a program that pays a stipend to young people who aren't involved in crime.
8:38 am
>> advanced peace. the idea is that in most urban cities, a small percentage of people commit the most violent crimes and while the cops will still do their things and jails exist, i think we owe it to invest in them. it's a private fellowship and if they meet certain criterion, they're eligible based on stipend work. it goes on the ethos of earning your keep and we're making sure we do everything we can to help earn in the community. >> is it correct -- i read that only 17.4% of stockton residents have bachelor degrees. >> that's absolutely correct. we're working hard to change that. we're working on letting young people see how it's attainable. that's going to be a long-term key. >> you're quite successful yourself, a 26-year-old mayor, stanford grad. what made you decide you were
8:39 am
ready to be mayor of stockton? >> i spent four years on the council in the community i grew up in. we're small but we're huge. we closed down problem liquor stores, opened up health clinics. people would come to the council meetings saying you onto care about south stockton. at first i thought i was doing my job. then i thought they were saying the rest of the city could use leadership. then i thought i would run for 2016. it's been a nice long fun journey. >> you've brought a lot of innovation. thank you for joining us. olympic hockey is an affair for

the winter olymps the winter olympics are taking place in freezing cold the relationship between north and south korea appears to be thawing. for the first time the two countries feel that a joint hockey team for the game. players from the north joined the south's national team. this sharing of the ice isn't limited to nations, however. sisters from one american family are both competing, but with an unusual twist. here's the improbable story.
8:44 am
dana, good morning. >> good morning. siblings competing in the same winter olympics in the same sport is nothing new, but siblings doing that for two different countries is rare. in fact, it's only happened a handful of times. at this winter olympics, that's exactly what hannah and marissa branch are doing. sharing their unique version of the olympic dream. >> we're so claes in age, so everything we did we did together. whether it was sports or korean culture camp. we were in it all together. >> reporter: marissa and hannah have teamed up all their lives, but in pyeongchang the zsisters are taking the ice for two different teams. hannah, for team usa. >> my mom told me that at one point i would watch one of the olympics, and i was, like, mom, i want to be out there one day. >> getting the call was something i couldn't say no to. i found myself saying yes right away, and then the opportunity to be in the olympics just happened, and i really can't
8:45 am
believe we are here now. >> being able to represent my birth country is just amazing. it's just something i never could have dreamed. . >> born in south korea, marissa was just 4 months old when she was adopted by greg and robin brant. her new home, 6,000 miles away in a picturesque suburb of st. paul, minnesota. younger sister, hannah, is one of the best young hockey talents on a u.s. roster packed full of expectations. >> it's a dream come true to be there, and to be there with my sister too and just i want to enjoy every second of it. >> while hannah and marissa are now competitors on the ice, that wasn't always the case. >> to be able to play on the same team pretty much every year growing up, and just spent a lot of extra time together that we might not normally have been able to. >> sounds like guys created an incredible bond with that. >> yeah, definitely. i think hockey brought us closer together. >> connected by their love of the game, that bond lasted while each played college hockey for
8:46 am
different schools. >> now -- >> now for different countries. both sisters get to play in the olympics. what does that mean? >> it's kind of like fate for it to work out the way it has. i don't think either of us could have ever dreamed of it. i think from my parents, they're just so proud of both of us and excited for the journey that's ahead. >> what is it like knowing you have two daughters going to the olympics? >> it's going to be busy. it's going to be busy because we have a game every day. >> i don't think we ever imaged it. >> can you explain the pride you must feel? >> one for the u.s., that's so prideful in that, and then -- >> marissa representing the home country of korea, her birth country. just unbelievable. >> and for both of you it's a chance to go to a country that brought you your daughter. >> well, we have always hoped we would be able to go as a family, but with all the hockey and everything we've done just never happened that we got to go
8:47 am
together. it's really special to get to go over now and go to the olympics and see where marissa came from and we're going to spend some time with her, and she's going so show us around. it's really unbelievable. >> i think that name isn't very common in korea. maybe my birth mom will come forward and maybe read my story and kind of put two and two together and maybe say something. >> if you could say something to your birth mother, what would you say? >> i don't know. it's going to make me cry. maybe that i'm just thankful that she put me up for adoption and kind of wanted a better life
8:48 am
for me. it's something i'm thankful for. yeah, just thankful to grow up here and have the parents that i do. yeah. >> not to mention her sister, hannah. >> if there was a brant sisters goal, what would that be at the olympics? >> i guess just to enjoy every second of it and embrace all the little moments that happen at the olympics. >> i think it would be fun to play each other. you know, it's not impossible, but a lot would have to happen to do that. i think just for us it's just to have fun, represent your country well. there are not many women, korean hockey players, so for me just to be a role model to them and i'm sure that's the same with my sist sister. >> a lot would twrul have to happen for hannah marissa to face off it would only happen in the gold medal round, and south korea is a very long shot for
8:49 am
that. the sister connection is going strong here in pyeongchang. the u.s. team actually has a set of twins on it. the swiss team has two sets of sisters. john. >> thanks. >> what a story. i hope that her mother sees her and what an incredible athletes they are. >> sisters and amazing parents. >> yeah. >> and you can hear more of cbs this morning on our podcast on itunes and apple's podcast app. clinical psychologist daphne shares her new book "the rough patch, marriage and the art of living together." you're watching cbs this morning. you're watching "cbs this morning." you're watching "cbs this morning." did you know, there's a world of miracles inside our bodies. for example, your eyes can see 10 million shades of color.
