5:31 am
captioning sponsored by rose communications >> rose: and so you began how? >> with fresh eyes. >> rose: is it luck at all or is it something else? >> we depend on that trust. >> rose: what's the object it casts such a long shadow. >> rose: tell me the significance of the moment. this was week the state department inspector general found fault with hillary clinton's private e-mail server. president obama continued his pivot to asia with a trip to vietnam and japan. and the film "i, daniel plac" by director ken loache, took the pomdor, at the cannes film festival. >> the associated press reporting that human remains retrieved from the egyptair flight point to an explosion. >> president obama makes an historic visit to hiroshima. >> we come to ponder a terrible force unleashed in a
5:32 am
not-so-distant past. >> rose: protesters clash with police at a trump rally. >> protesters actually got through some police barricade where's donald trump was speaking. >> rose: investigators find fault with hillary clinton's e-mails. >> this was a very scathing report. this was very highly sensitive material. >> it is not an issue that is going to affect either the campaign or my presidency. >> the u.s. has discovered its first known human case of a superbug. >> it's a wake-up call for all of us to question whether we need antibiotics. >> rose: a baltimore officer is acquitted in the freddie gray case. >> the charges against him were comparatively minor compared to some of the defendants we're going to see later on. >> rose: bill cosby is ordered to stand trial. >> we want to seek the truth. >> rose: the u.s. targets a taliban leader. >> a u.s. airstrike targeted mulla monsour. >> ken loach won his second pomdorat the cannes film festival. >> i hope they were touched by
5:33 am
it. >> the security chief of the t.s.a. has been fired. he's been told to expect long lines at the unemployment line. ( laughter ) ♪ everybody take it off >> i gotta admit, it is a little distracting standing up here looking at them. >> at the clinton rally a few men took off their clothes just a few feet away from the candidate. >> as long as they don't take anything else off. >> rose: we began the week with politics. hillary clinton's private e-mail server is back in the news. there have been more incidents of violence at donald trump rallies, and there may be one more debate before the california primaries but it's not one that everybody expected. mike allen is here with that and more. he is the chief white house correspondent for politico and the editor of the playbook blog. as always, we'll thrilled to have him here, welcome. >> charlie, thank you for having me at the table. >> rose: we know donald trump
5:34 am
has reached enough delegates-- >> pick trump. >> rose: yes, indeed. when will hillary clinton reach the same point? >> well, charlie, this is the amazing reversal of fortune. remember when this process started? we thought that there was one viable democrat and 17 republicans-- three, four, five, six, viable ones. and now she's having to go until the very end, bernie sanders pushing her, bernie sanders looking stronger, getting more coverage. >> rose: what's wrong with the clinton campaign? is it the candidate? >> the clinton campaign needs excitement. and there's such an excitement deficit between trump and her. and the dilemma for secretary clinton is steadiness, seriousness, cautiousness is her brand. and you would assume that in these times that's what people want. >> rose: perfect anecdote to donald trump. >> yes. but it's not.
5:35 am
so you can remember me saying this fall to you when-- we had the summer of trump and then the fall of trump. and i used to say, you know, at any moment, something could happen in the world that would remind people this is a real job. and then we had the attack in paris, and trump went up. and so people want, or at least a large number of voters who amazingly now, the two of them are tied in national polls, something that none of us saw coming. and interestingly enough, charlie, the white house didn't see it coming. so what the clinton people hope is that donald trump is going to do a lot of their job for them, that if you want to talk about-- if we were to do a report card for young donald trump, we would say donald is showing a failure to grow. so all these republicans who hold that donald trump would suddenly become more presidential now that he is nominee have been disappointed this week.
5:36 am
this week we had him out on stage calling senator warren, to make fun of her claim about -- >> pocahantus. >> yes! and calling her goofy. and a week ago, he said, "who cares if there's a trade war?" and that's not what republicans are looking for. and i can tell you someone that this is hurting donald trump with is paul ryan. speaker ryan, okay, seemed to be headed -- >> towards an endorsement. >> yeah, and i think he'll still get there. but i think what we can say from this week is donald trump didn't make it any easier. >> rose: there is also this, the e-mail crisis. is it significant? does it have an impact? does it play into the sort of unease people had about her? >> here's the problem with the e-mail revelations is that they then put out-- the clinton campaign put out a statement that said, "well, this just vindicates what we've been saying." >> rose: no, it doesn't. >> no, it didn't. >> rose: and everybody knew that. >> someone said to me, "that's
5:37 am
why people hate you." >> rose: exactly. >> and so this report made it clear it's going to be difficult for her to put behind her. >> rose: there's also this, bernie sanders and donald trump may have a debate in california and the money would go to char et. >> i think they're going to do it, and i think it's going to be one of the best rated debates in the history of television. that's going to be an awesome debate. here's the thing, charlie, they both have incentive to do it. bernie sanders wants to keep this going as long as he can. and donald trump wants to make mischief. >> rose: president obama's returning from his week-long trip to asia and the final g-7 summit meeting of his presidency. david sanger is also back from asia. he is the chief political correspondent for the "new york
5:38 am
times." i think you just got off a plane as we taped this hours before. thank you for coming by. >> always good to be with you. >> rose: give me an overview of this trip. put it in context. part of it is legacy building. part of it is reminding americans he is talking about the importance of asia. >> that's right, charlie. i think the two big parts of this trip are the vietnam side, which is what he did the beginning part of the week. which was the first time he had gone to vietnam and was important because he is trying to wrap vietnam into the overall strategy of the asian pivot, and to try to get vietnam, the philippines, others in the region to all participate in this effort to jointly contain the chinese without making the chinese view it as containment. and it's not an easy-- it's not an easy trick, as you can imagine. because, on the one hand, he's trying to engage the chinese,
5:39 am
saying we understand we need to work as partners and so north. and yet, he is using the fact that the chinese have been so aggressive in the south china sea to help draw in asian nations that have not been traditional allies, that have been very reluctant partners at times, back into the american fold. and so if you just look around the region, he is negotiating with the philippines about getting access to bases that we were thrown out of 20, 25 years ago when i was a correspondent in asia. and that we never thought we'd have access to again. he's already got a deal with the australians to have some access to darwin. and that means that what he's hoping to do is keep american forces engaged in and in new places around the south cheena sea where they're constantly going to be in china's face. >> rose: it's fair to say that vietnam and some of these
5:40 am
countries welcomed this because they're very wary of chinese intentions over the long run. >> that's right. and so, the trick here is to try to draw-- use the chinese aggressiveness to play off of the insecurities of these countries and make sure that they recognize that it's the united states with whom they've got the best long-term possibilities. now,s what's running against this, of course, is the domestic politics here. they see donald trump up talking about how relationships in the region, including the american troop presence, should be based on whether or not these countries are financially contributing. but certainly, what's missing from the trump argument right now is the case that the u.s. itself has an interest in the region, and for its own reasons, may well want to have a presence. so these countries are
5:41 am
extraordinarily nervous that the asian pivot that the president has talked so much about may go away on january 20, 2017. >> rose: a new production of tennessee william's "a streetcar named desire "has been playing to critical acclaim. it stars gillian anderson son as blanch, and vanessa kirby as stella. >> i suppose it's about actively forgetting that it was marked by kazzan, it was marked by brando. it cast such a long shadow. benedict andrews, our director, said he wanted to explore the material in an out-of-time and was much more interested in the returning soldier aspect. >> rose: right. >> and that seemed like a new
5:42 am
door we could unpack. >> it was a role you jumped at? >> i hadn't seen the film. i hadn't seen the play, at least in-- at least 15 years. by re-reading it. it's daunting on paper. it's daunting-- the history is daunting. but upon reading it and talking with benedict, i felt like we could find a new way in. >> rose: is blanch daunting? >> i don't know about daunting. exciting, i think. i had wanted to do this for 30 years. and it seems like it took that long to-- to realize the production. and i trusted ben dect enough from the things that i had seen him direct in the past to leave everything at the door and walk in completely with freshize and
5:43 am
really glad that i started with a clean slate, because we immediately just started from word one, punctuation one, to dig into it, in a really forensic way. >> so much of this is about trauma and post-traumatic stress, whether an event happens or not happens, it's how we cope. and this play feels so much about unpacking the ideas of how we've been hurt and how we deal with those hurts and then how do we push those wounds into each other. blanch is coming from a war, it seems. stanley's coming from salerno, and these wounded warriors are meeting in a living room air, bedroom. >> the inability to talk about or express the pain or the trauma, you know. and the repression and the-- from all three of them in different capacities, you know. i think it is-- and the running away from it i think is what the play-- you know, it's like a tsunami that catches up with you
5:44 am
and then comes over you. you can't-- you can't run,un, and that's sort of what the play is looking at. >> rose: does every good play affect you in some sense that somehow gives you insight about life that perhaps you didn't have. >> oh, yeah. >> yeah. >> it's a privilege to have an allotted time to meditate on a set of material or practice it or exploring exploer it. hearing these words every night, it feels like a prayer. the way someone may go up on a mounttop or sit in a cabin or out in the wilderness. we go in a dark room every night and we consider these words in a tactile, visceral way. we may know each others' lines but in a way we try to forget them to hear them anew. >> rose: penelope cruz became the first and only spanish-born actress to receive an academy award in 2009. now, she is starring in "mama,"
5:45 am
director julio madem's new film about a mother coming to terms with breast cancer. >> in the beginning of the movie she's-- her husband leaves, and she's a single mother that is looking for a job as a teacher. and everything is chaos. and then they tell her, well, on top of that you do have cancer and you're going to start treatment tomorrow. and she says, "but wait a second, tomorrow. what do i do with my son? and i have a hair amount. should i keep it or should i cancel it?" >> rose: then she's pregnant. she gets cured and then the cancer comes back, and in the middle of that she's starting this new relationship way man that is also going thiew a recovery of a huge tragedy in his life. and they -- >> lost his wife and cheeld. >> yes, and they need each other. they recognize something in each other, and they start this relationship. and she becomes-- she gets pregnant in the middle of that. and she's creating life, her body is creating life.
5:46 am
she has two hearts beating inside her, but at the same time, she has this cloud on her, this monster that is trying to take her away from this world. and then she decides to try to create these family for her son, who is 10, and she has nobody else in the world. and she-- we're not going to say what happens fshe is going to make it or not. but she does great, huge things for this kid. and she creates a family for him. >> rose: how have children changed your life? >> in every single way, from the first second, i always said it's like a huge, internal revolution. everything seems different. you are reviewing your own childhood again, and kids become your own masters, too. you are teach, but they are teaching you constantly. they keep you really present. you're really there. and it's amazing how you-- the the way you look at things again like christmas or looking-- you sit down in the park and look at the way an ant is picking food and taking it to their home, and
5:47 am
things they never did for so many years, since evidence a kid. >> rose: your mother had a hair salon, right? >> yes. >> rose: when i saw. >> of course,y remember. and you saw the street, my grandmother's house. >> rose: and people would look in the wendos and they would all say, "penelope." >> i have great memories from that walk you and i took in madrid. >> rose: if you had to, could you cut someone's hair well today, you? >> yes. >> rose: yes, you could, couldn't you? >> yes. i've cut selma hayek's hair -- >> also with candlelight, too, wasn't it? >> it was true. she had to go to a premiere, and she had no light in her house, and she let me do everything. the ones that really trust me-- i don't know how to do everything in the hair salon of my mother. that could be my other job, if things don't go well. and i love it because, i told you, that her salon for me was
5:48 am
really my first acting school. >> rose: exactly. >> because to see all these women the way they behaved with my mother, how they told her all their secrets about their relationships and all the different personalities, or the ones that were pretending to be something they were not. i was there behind my book pretending to study, but i was really studying human behavior. >> rose: this week, vice president joe biden delivered the commencement address to the graduating cadets at west point. he also recorded this note to his 12-year-old self. it was produced by page cendig, and jena gibson for "cbs this morning." ♪ ♪ >> dear joe, you're only 12. your stutter is debilitating. it embarrasses you, and the bullies are vicious.
