♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it's thursday, july 18th, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." with millions of americans in the grip of dangerous heat, we'll look at the warning signs of heat exhaustion and heatstroke. plus, we'll talk to major garrett about president trump's rally where his supporter chanted send her back about a democratic congresswoman. and meet the 88-year-old congressional aide who proved civility can still be found in washington. first, here is today's "eye opener" coming at you at 8:00. more than half of the country will be hit by a dangerous and record-breaking heat wave over the next 24
8:01 am
hours. >> roughly 660 people die each and every year from heat-related illness. >> i'm on shirt number three today. >> the worst is probably heading our way on saturday. feels-like temperatures to at least 115 degrees. >> this rally was a chance to test out how this controversial approach is resonating with his supporters and it appeared they are with him all the way. >> protesters said how can he look at what we're doing and not reconsider? this was the front line of the protests. >> we reached out to expectationspacey's attorney. he is not out of legal jeopardy completely. he is reportedly still facing sexual assault allegations in great britain. elon mausk has plans to connect your thoughts to your computer. wibrain. olves planting tiny >> having computers in our brain is not going to end well. can we agree on this? think how many times you hit reply all by mistake.
8:02 am
imagine you could reply with your brain. your co-worker the next day is like, yesterday you said yesterday, you sent that to the entire office. toyota. let's go places. that reply all is the worst. have you ever done that? >> that's a very scary idea there, the chip in your brain. >> elon musk has a lot of plans, a lot of ideas. maybe table this one. >> big elon musk fan. i'm gayle king with anthony mason and tony dokoupil. officials are warning tens of millions of americans to take extra precautions as a dangerous heat wave hits two-thirds of this country. the heat is already proving deadly. maryland officials say two people suffered heat-related deaths this week. jeff berardelli is here. jeff, the question now, how long can we expect these sweltering temperatures to last? >> the worst of it, gayle, is through about sunday or so.
8:03 am
then a major relief is on the way for the northeast especially. so just hold on for a few days. things will get be, dus oppress heat is on the way. you have heard the term it's not the heat, it's the humidity. it's never been more twru than the next few days. dew point measures how much moisture in the atmosphere. in miami the highest dew points are in the low 80s. we are going to see that all the way up to iowa and minnesota, and places like omaha, nebraska. so even though high temperatures will only be around 90, 92, 93 degrees, feels-like temperatures will be as high as 115 to 120 degrees. on saturday that heat shifts to the east. look at washington, d.c., new york, and raleigh. we are talking heat indices again up to around 110, maybe as high as 115. limit your time outdoors. there is a direct connection between more extreme heat and climate change. in fact, it's the most direct connection when you talk about
8:04 am
climate change. a new study from the union of concerned scientists. that is a serious science organization. this is what they fund. by 2050 we will see 105 heat index temperatures triple. triple the amount of heat index days above 105. by leightonstery tate -- we maye end of the scale. by 2100, boston may have as many extreme heat days as columbia, south carolina. so it's going to get worse unless we stop our emissions. >> all right. jeff, thank you very much. the nation's capitol is among the places bracing for triple-digit heat. temperature in washington, d.c. will be 113 degrees, rivaling death valley in california. this could cause dangerous problems for drivers. kris van cleave is in washington. what are the richkss? >> good morning. i have been sitting this car for the last 15 minutes or so.
8:05 am
you can see i have started to sweat. while it's a relatively comfortable 81 degrees outside, inside the car we are closer to 90. that's going to continue to climb. that can make things particularly dangerous for drivers. already this year at least 21 kids who have been left in that hot car have died. there was a case on tuesday. a baby girl in richmond, virginia, died after she was apparently left in a car when the temperature was in the low 90s. a car's temperature will increase up to 40 degrees in an hour, particularly in the hot sun. 80% of that increase comes in the first 30 minutes. so if it's 95 degrees outside like it will be here tomorrow, within ten minutes it's 114 in the car. within 30 it's 129 degrees. now, aaa warns it can drain your car battery. it can also contribute to damage to your vehicle. they recommend drivers make sure vehicles are in good working order, topping off fluids and
8:06 am
having properly inflated tires. they recommend drivers keep an emergency kit with things like first-aid and water. they say it's a good idea to have extra water in your vehicle during this really hot period. really what first responders are saying is it's vitally important that you double-check the car. don't leave kids or pets inside the vehicle. gayle. >> all right. thank you very much. keep that ac running, kris. the cdc says 600 people die in the u.s. every year from extreme heat. our dr. tara narula joins us at the table with more on that. there are three stages to heat emergency. what are the warning signs in the body and what are the precautions people can take to protect themselves? >> right. what happens is your body's temperature control systems is overwhelmed. we have in our brain an area that keeps it within 98.6 degrees plus or minus 2 degrees. over 104, you become at risk for heatstroke. so heatstroke is when your core
8:07 am
temperature is 104 or higher and you start to have central nervous system dysfunction. your cells start to break down. your gut is lucky. you risk muscle damage, kidney, liver, heart damage. the mechanisms of the body is that we dilate the blood vessels in our skin so we shunt blood to the skin to aradiate off the het and we sweat. the sweat evaporates and that cools us. when the temperature is so high, it doesn't work, that mechanism. when the humidity is high we can't evaporate the sweat off. >> sometimes you don't know how bad it is until it's too late. >> right. muscle cramping or heat cramping is the beginning stages. then heat exhaustion and heatstroke. warnings signs are things like a faster heart rate, feeling nausea or vomiting, having aita
8:08 am
consciousness. this is a real medical emergency. if you see someone suffering call 911 and cool them any way you can. get them into a cool bath, cool sponges or cool blankets on t s them, get their temperature down to 101 or 102. this for you, gayle. this is my from daughter. it's an accessory bracelet for you. i know you love accessories. >> she knows about my hot flashes. >> yes. >> thank you. it's portable, too. >> that's fabulous, although you might need a bigger fan. president trump is using attacks on the female congresswomen known as the squad to fire up his supporters. he called out the four lawmakers of color by name at a campaign rally last night in north carolina. that drew raucous applause from the crowd and a chant based on the president's racist tweet. >> tonight i have a suggestion for the hate-filled extremists who are constantly trying to
8:09 am
tear our country down. they never have anything good to say. that's why i say, hey, if they don't like it, let them leave. let them leave. omar has a history of launching vicious anti-semitic skreeds. [ crowd chanting ] >> you can hear the crowd chanting "send her back." we're talking about congresswoman ilhan omar. she was born in somalia. she is an american citizen, lived here since she was a young teenager. she responded on twitter with a picture of her. she wrote i am where i belong at the people's house and you are just going to have to deal with it. major garrett joins us from washington. major, you have seen plenty of these trump rallies. did the scene last night surprise you? >> with you and tony and anthony yesterday on the set in new york, what did i say? the president is looking for a replacement for hillary clinton. i didn't know when i said that, hours later there would be a
8:10 am
chant coming from a trump rally reminiscent of the 2016 hillary clinton clant, "lock her up," which was "send her back." this is consistent with the sense among some trump supporters, and it's worth pointing out you see in the video not every trump supporter is chanting that, but some believe there is a dividing line in america and the president is on the love america patriotic side and those who vehemently disagree with him are not. i have been to nearly 80 trump rallies. i talk to trump supporters at every one of them. i spent an an hour and a half with them in orlando. individually they present as patriotic, earnest, love the president, love the country, believe these chants are somewhat in jest and are surprised people are fearful about them. that is a dividing line in perception and the way politics plays out. and trump supporters don't think they are doing anything wrong even when they chant like this. they believe critics of the president are too sensitive and they are the ones who are
8:11 am
unhinged. it is the biggest dividing line in american politics. >> when you are watching it, i think for a lot of people this is very frightening. i just want to help -- i would like you to help us understand why you can't just disagree with the president without being called unamerican. i just met the squad the other day. i don't know them. i never talked to any of them before that interview. i only spent 30 minutes. not one of them ever said i hate america. not one of them ever said i don't want to be here. in fact, i would say they love this country so much, they spoke with such pride about being in congress. they pointed out where they sat in the room and the bills that they have passed and the passion that they have for this country and their people and their constituents. so for him to say with a big microphone they hate this country, that just is simply not true. it scares me he is putting that narrative out there. >> he is putting that narrative out there. and for the republica become thp
8:12 am
party, when the president says you disagree with me, he is iotrue american patriots, oftentimes election emails sent to trump supporters will say true american patriots. this is one of the things that's at stake in 2020. what is our definition nationally, collectively of what patriotism is or isn't? is dissent unpatriotic? is that the essential core of the trump message? some trump supporters believe that. others are not exactly sure of that. it is one of the central, i would argue, primal questions in american politics in the 2020 election. what is our definition of ourself? what are we comfortable with? what are we willing to live with? >> indeed, who are we? that is the question. >> what do

8:31 am
>> yes. a fever, almost. >> yeah, these pictures are evidence, people. >> beautiful but terrifying. mine is about as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the walk on the moon, according to a recent survey, kids today would much rather be stars than see stars. they did a survey of 3,000 kids between the age of 8 and 12, if you had a choice, what would you want to be? the number one thing is a youtube star. that came in first. followed by a teacher, a musician, the astronaut came in last place. >> wow. >> which i think is so iconic. when i was growing up and they said what do you want to be, most little boys would say astronaut, police officer, firefighter. now it's youtube. in china, the majority of them said astronaut, which i think is interesting. >> very revealing. >> i once visited my son's class and talked about my job.

oh, no. did he just say i'll be right back? with the i'll be right back finger? >> he threw four bats out of the dugout. >> wow, a rager. >> then he also threw a bucket of balls. here comes the bucket of balls. a little big for him, but he managed to tip it over. >> there you go. >> is this little kid acting or is he just -- >> you think he's a real coach? >> no, i don't think he's a real coach, but i don't think it's funny if he's not acting. >> all we know about coach drake is -- >> i like how he walks. >> the hunched shoulders. >> i like how he walks. >> all we know about coach drake is he's 6 years old and apparently he has a bad temper. the team did say, this is, by the way, a summer college league that he's employed by. the team did say he's likely to be fined for his tirade. and his fine will be garnished from his allowance. >> i'm not going to disparage little children, but i'm just saying, if that's supposed to be all in fun, okay.
8:34 am
>> i think it is. >> you have seen highlight videos of tommy lasorda and the like. >> he's proven extremely hilarious. >> every thursday we highlight stories affecting consumers. these days, everything from makeup to meals can be delivered to your door. more and more people are signing up for subscription services like meal pkits, cl a 2018 surv found americans spend an average of $237.33 on subscriptions each month, including cell phone service. that's 197% higher than what people surveyed originally estimated. "wall street journal" personal technology columnist joanna stern makes the case to stop wasting money on unnecessary monthly subscriptions. >> i'm here to save you all money. >> thank you. why is this subscription economy taking off? >> in it tech world, there's
8:35 am
something called software as a service, or sas, not a bad word, but sorta. it idea that everything has become a service. we used to buy a piece of desktop software and we would buy it for one time and then we buy it again. but now, now we alw pay f atas with everything from netflix to amazon prime or any other really tech service, but also it's made its way to everything else we have. >> meditation apps like head space where you get an automatic renewal all the time. >> if you have an app on your phone, there's a good chance there's a subscription tied to it. you're paying with advertising. or you're paying with your own money. and low longer are we in these days of paying for that 99 cents app. we're paying more in subscriptions, a monthly recurring fees to the companies. >> pay attention to when you get these automatic payments. make shuure you're absolutely
8:36 am
using them. i have so many apps i haven't used in years and there's still there. >> my advice is every year, we all sit down and do an audit of our subskrpshzs. we go through our credit bills or emails, wherever we see them pop up. make a list, do it on a spreadsheet, put it on paper, and look at the list. do you use these things. >> did you do it yourself? >> i did. that's why i'm here. >> what happened? >> i'm here to tell my personal story. i did. i made this list, and i realized that three or four of the services i had, i had just not used in years. one of them being an e-fax service. am i on national television saying i had a fax service. $15 a month, and i had gotten it, it was on some credit card i don't use that often, and maybe i used it once or twice a year to send something to my accountant. >> $1,000 fax. >> you know, the promise of streaming services was you get rid of a big old cable bill, and then you pay these little
8:37 am
slices. are we at a point where it might be cheaper just to have cable for entertainment? >> i just did this math, and it is for me because i went through, and i would want to subscribe to a lot of these premium channels. showtime, hbo, now we're adding in things like if you pay for amazon, you might want some of the amazon shows. disney is going to have shows. >> netflix just raised its price. >> we're going to soon have new services from hbo and other types of services. so you have to look at what you pay for cable, what are the things you get, what are the shows you get that you actually watch. then compare, if i cut the cord, what other streaming services would i want to get those services on. >> i am told by my millennial friend, millennials don't use cable. >> it's true. >> is it true? >> you don't have cable boxes? >> i think millennials or younger people might be more selective about what they watch. so they may pick and choose. and they may cancel or start saying i'm going to watch this show on hulu, but then i'm going
8:38 am
to cancel it after i watched it. they pick and choose, and also, they're using streaming boxes. that's the main difference of what's going to ppen, wt's the box we get this from. >> businesses love this because they get a guaranteed monthly income that keeps recurring, obviously. is it a good deal for consumers? >> it depends. it's like an all you can eat buffet. if you go to the buffet and eat a lot, that's great for consumers. >> you have to pay attention to your monthly bill. >> pay attention to your monthly bill and use those services. >> like the buffet, you can't eat all that much. a $30 buffet and you're not that hungry, you're going to be uncomfortable. >> if you go to the buffet and get something from the fruit bar, it doesn't make sense. it just doesn't. >> i don't know. >> you're saying do an audit, people. >> do an audit. do it every month. >> every month? >> not every month, every year. if you want to do it every month and have a lot of time on your hand. make sure, also be careful. all of these services are doing the 30 free .>>hat's how they g.
8:39 am
>> watch out for that. if you sign up for the 30 free days, put it on your calendar. say, okay, the end of this is 29 days. i'm going to cancel it. >> put it on your calendar right now. >> more than 80% of people underestimate what they're paying every month. joanna stern, thanks. one of the longest serving aides in congress has a well earned reputation for bipartisanship. ahead in our more perfect union good thursday morning. a gray start with the clouds and areas of fog even patchy drizzle along the coast and parts of the bay, all because of the stronger onshore flow kicking in and with it heading to the ternooperatureare cool. 81 a concord. 83 for san jose. 69 in oakland and 63 for san francisco. with the clearing, the cloud

in our series, a more perfect union, we aim to show that what units us as americans is far greater than what divides us. despite the partisan divisions in washington, we found one guy working in congress who has support of republicans and democrats. it's because he's had a lot of practice. bertie bowman is the name. he started working on capitol hill in world war ii and he's still on the job as the senate senior staffer. nancy cordes is on the hill where she learned this 88-year-old guy has no plans to slow down. nancy, good morning. can't wait to meet him. >> he is a great guy. and just to put his longevity the to perspective, the longest serving current senator has been here on capitol hill for 44 years. bertie bowman has been working re for three quarters of a

century. and along the way, he has become a confidante to giants of the right and the left. >> i'm going to have to start at that end. >> on the senate foreign relations committee, there are junior senators, there are senior senators, and then -- >> bertie. >> there's bertie bowman. >> he outranks me by a long, long ways. >> it isn't just about his age. 88 and going strong. it's that he started running this hearing room in 1966. >> bertie bowman, the former clerk of this committee for 500 years. >> at every key hearing, he's the one you see in the corner of the frame. escorting witnesses, fixing the mikes. >> his name is bertie bowman. >> and keeping the powerful in check. >> mr. bowman, he has outlasted all of us on this committee. rigorous time keeper. >> bertie came to capitol hill when he was 13ears old.
8:45 am
he ran away from his south carolina home after a chance meeting with his senator, burnett maybank. >> before he could get in his car, i was pulling on his coat tail, if i come to washington, can i stop by and see you? he said yes. >> what did you think you were going to do when you got to washington? >> i didn't know. it was a future that i was headed for somewhere, but where i was headed, i didn't know. i was just bored. >> so he hopped a train and headed straight to maybank pufs office on capitol hill. >> he gave me a job sleep sweeping the capitol steps at that time and paid me out of his pocket. >> $2 a week. that was 1944. he went on to do stints as a capitol janitor, a cook, and shining shoes. >> lyndon johnson used to love to get dressy. how are my boots? u n see you face better
8:46 am
than i can. >> by the time he got to the foreign relations committee, he seemed to know about congress more than the senators. >> he made senators look good. >> senators like that. >> we don't mind it. >> former senator chuck hagel is a republican. democrat tim kaine is still on the committee. >> he reminds us of something very important that we have lost, civility. >> every new senator gets a crash course from bertie. >> i tell them, you know, you have to kind of, when you walk out the door, look left or right, and say hello, how are you this morning. >> a lot of staffers would be intimidated to tell a senator something like that. >> i can't be intimidated where i was taught how to treat people. i treat them too good. >> one of those people was a young messenger who sent us this video. >> he was exactly the kind of person you would want to take you under his wing if you're a in your first job in washington. >> we want you to have this. >> now, washington is returning the favor. >> we're just honored to name
8:47 am
this new building after you. >> putting bertie's name atop the new headquarters of the senate federal building. >> i didn't believe it at first. i was really shocked and honored. isn't that great? >> amazing. >> i feel so honored. i'm the happiest guy in the world. >> at 88, bertie bowman has no plans to retire. he says his doctor has told him to slow down, but he told me that he knows he is still the best at his job, which is the kind of confidence that is hard earned after 75 years of experience. >> nancy, i love that story. >> i do, too. what a treasure bertie bowman is. >> congratulations on having a building named after him. >> well deserved. glad he's not slowing down. he's needed there. that word, civility, very important on capitol hill. h k t n "cbs this morning"
