7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." there is a man who understands pop culture. >> he's got good timing, too. >> very good, indeed. ted cruz is counting on tomorrow's indiana primary to keep donald trump from the republican nomination. the latest poll there shows trump leading cruz by 15 points. john kasich is far behind in third place. >> and kasich agreed ton -- not to campaign in indiana to give cruz a better chance to beat trump. cruz says he'll leave oregon and new mexico to kasich. there's no sign yet they can beat donald trump together or even separately. major garrett is in washington watching the gop race. good morning. >> reporer: good morning. while trump and cruz slugged it out in indiana, their campaigns competed this weekend for delegate slates at gop gatherings in several different states. for the first time, trump forced his beat cruz challenges in delaware and arkansas.
7:04 am
it's a sign that trump is figuring out the rules when he's used to scoring. >>yon what we're doing. >> reporter: campaigning across indiana yesterday, donald trump tried to bury ted cruz and all but end the race for the gop nomination. >> ted, lyin' ted cruz, is so hated. he's got such a rotten personality. he was born in canada, folks. >> reporter: john kasich stopped campaigning in indiana per the awkward pact between him and cruz to stop trump the deal appears to be come unglued. even if it held, almost 60% of indiana voters opposed the alliance to consolidate the anti-trump vote in indiana and elsewhere. >> our country is at the edge of a cliff. this is not a typical election. we risk losing everything. >> reporter: cruz must win indiana and claim most of his 57 delegates to slow trump's momentum and give his flagging campaign a spark. on "face the nation," cruz picked up on marco rubio's failed attack that trump is a con artist.
7:05 am
>> donald trump is attempting to perpetuate one of the greatest frauds in the history of modern elections which is he is trying to convince people that he's some sort of outsider. >> reporter: trump's convention manager, paul manafort, bit back -- >> ted cruz is the one who's been part of the mess in washington. and ted cruz is the one who has no friends in washington, wo't be able to do anything. >> reporter: manafort refused to say whether trump would put lobbyists out of business or greatly diminish their influence if trump became president. he also wouldn't rule out trump raising money from special interests to fund gop party committees in the general election. gayle? >> thank you. hillary clinton is already looking past the indiana primary. the democratic front-runner will campaign in kentucky and west virginia this afternoon, while bernie sanders makes three stops in indiana. clinton is also concentrating more on donald trump and the republicans. nancy cordes in washington looks at the new shift in focus and how clinton offended one group over the weekend. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:06 am
hillary clinton had been sort of dipping her toe in the general election pool. last night, she dove right in, warning that a win for trump would spell victory for what she called the voices of hatred in this country. >> we cannot let barack obama's legacy fall into donald trump's hands. >> reporter: at an naacp dinner in detroit, clinton told thousands of african-americans that trump was stoking racial tension and violence. >> the leading republican contender is the man who led the insidious birther movement to discredit the president's citizenship. >> reporter: on cnn, clinton described trump's rhetoric as an insult fest and said she planned to ignore some of his more inflammatory comments about her. >> i had a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation. >> that's a very demeaning remark to men in my opinion.
7:07 am
>> reporter: some in the native american community also took offense at her use of the term "off the reservation." clinton's national political director tweeted an apology saying, "divisive language has no place in our politics." a new poll shows bernie sanders within striking distance of clinton in indiana. he insisted sunday he could still win the nomination. >> the convention will be a contested contest. >> reporter: on "face the nation," he urgeded superdelegates to reconsider their support for clinton. >> our argument is take a look at which candidate is better suited to beat donald trump. every poll that i have seen, national and statewide, says that bernie sanders is the stronger candidate. >> reporter: president obama hinted at the long odds for sanders at the white house correspondents dinner. >> next year at this time, someone else will be standing here in this very spot, and it's anyone's guess who she will be.
7:08 am
[ laughter ] >> reporter: the president did joke that at 74, sanders is the hip new thing in washington, while clinton seems more like your aunt hillary trying to use facebook for the first time. clinton played along tweeting yesterday, "nice job, mr. president, and the hillary approves." at least five seattle police officers are injured this morning after violent street protests. [ shouting ] >> police! >> move! >> police in riot gear arrested nine people yesterday during the may day protests. one officer was bitten and another was struck with a molotov cocktail. the march began as a peaceful demonstration for the right of workers and immigrants. nick magert of our affiliate kiro shows how it turned violent. nick, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i want to show you we're right in downtown seattle. this is a starbucks. you see that boarded up window where they shattered the glass. through the door, that crumpled

7:14 am
station in a southern city killing dozens of people. the latest in a series of isis-orchestrated attacks as iraq sprierls into a deepening political crisis. saturday, hundreds of protesters tore down the wall surrounding the green zone, storming the parliament building and ransacking offices. they robbed the motorcade as politicians raced to get away. the demonstrators were acting on the orders of moqtada al sadr, the powerful shiite cleric responsible for launching a bloody insurgency against u.s. forces. tension had been mounting for months. public protests against what's seen as rampant corruption in the government run by prime minister haider al abadi. it came just 48 hours after the unannounced visit of vice president joe biden, not only to support the beleaguered prime minister now bolster the military fight against isis. now breaching the green zone is
7:15 am
unprecedented. anybody who's been there can tell you what a fortress it is, and it's home to the u.s. embassy. there is now a sense that it is no longer impregnable. if they did it once, they may be able to do it again. norah? >> frightening indeed. thank you very much. puerto rico this morning is headed for a massive debt payment default. the island's governor says it will not pay most of $422 million due today. puerto rico's total debt load is more than $70 billion. congress has been unable to pass a debt restructuring bill. puerto rico is not a state and cannot declare bankruptcy under federal law. a $2 billion payment is due in july. washington is going back to work this morning still talking about saturday's white house correspondents dinner. president obama made his farewell appearance as the guest of honor. he got some really huge laughs. comedian larry wilmore suddenly found himself campaigning to win back the room. we have more from the white house briefing room on two very different performances. julianna, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the annual event brings together
7:16 am
washington and hollywood, and it's affectionately known as nerd prom. you can always count on the president to take shots at everyone from the press to his political friends and foes. this year, for his eighth and final year, he showed no mercy. >> you all look great. the end of the republic has never looked better. [ laughter ] >> reporter: on his last night as comedian-in-chief, president obama spared no one, not even fellow democrats angling for his spot next year. >> i am hurt, though, that you've been distancing yourself a little from me. i mean, that's just not something that you do to your comrade. [ laughter ] if this material works well, i'm going to use it at goldman sachs next year. >> reporter: the president really sharpened his knives for the republican front-runner. >> you see, donald lacks the foreign policy experience to be
7:17 am
president. in fairness, he has spent years meeting with leaders from around the world -- miss sweden. [ laughter ] miss argentina. miss azerbaijan. and there's one area where donald's experience could be inavailable. that's closing -- invaluable. that's closing guantanamo because trump knows a thing or two about running waterfront properties into the ground. >> reporter: comedy central's larry wilmore had the unenviable task of following the president's roast. >> saw you hanging out with nba players like steph curry, golden state warriors. that was cool, yeah. it's got to make sense, too, because both of you like raining down bombs on people from long distances, right? true. what? >> reporter: at one point, he acknowledged some of his jokes missed the mark. >> you guys are tough, man. >> reporter: and later used the "n" word in what may be the most inflammatory remark of the evening. >> so mr. president, i'm going
7:18 am
to keep at 100, yo, barry, you did [ bleep ], did it. >> reporter: the night belonged to the president. and with unemployment less than a year away, he made a former foe a possible retirement buddy. >> look here. [ laughter ] >> reporter: and dropped the mike on eight years of laughs. >> obama out. [ laughter ] [ applause ] >> reporter: donald trump seemed to shake it off. he told fox news he thought the president did a nice job. but norah, he got a bit defensive. he made sure to point out that he has the best waterfront properties in the world. >> of course he did. thank you very much. >> he took the ribbing very well. i heard the interview. >> a final performance by the president. >> i thought the president was awesome. people are still talking about the larry wilmore comment. it will be interesting. we'll continue at 8:00. he said if he wanted to be provocative, he did that. and i'm curious, i don't think
7:19 am
it played so well in the room. i'm curious to see how it played outside of the room. i don't think it worked in the room. >> yeah. tough act to follow. >> very. very. malia obama's future will take her from the white house to the ivy league. ahead, why the first daughter will put harvard on hold f

prince's family heads to court to discuss his multimillion dollar estate. the music icon's sister said prince died without having a will. the value of his estate is estimated to be at least $300 million. cbs news legal expert rikk rikki klieman on how the fortune will likely be split. explain the difference between having a will and not having a will. >> if you would like the government to have half of your estate, don't make a will. that's exactly what's happened here. if you make a will, you have the ability, especially with things like this, to put things in trust so that the government is not going to get its hands on it. off the top here, 10% is going to go to probate expenses. he died without a will, we call that dying in test ate. the court will have all these costs by an administrator. then the government will take really about 50%. so what is left, understandably, a lot of money, is going to be
7:34 am
divided up perhaps equally amongst the heirs. who are the heirs? we have a sister. we have five half siblings. we may have a grand niece. if there is a grand niece who is then the granddaughter meaning from a brother who's deceased which get to be way too far away, she gets to step up in equal shares. >> and there are children coming out saying that they are -- that they are prince's children. >> well, i bet that we are going to hear from people who will say that they are in fact the love child of prince. now, if you are the love child of prince and you could prove it up -- which probably means dna, that you can show you really are flesh of his flesh, as they say, the winner takes it all. the child gets everything, and the other sibling, half siblings, are wiped out. >> how much money are we talking about? it seems that that is always
7:35 am
changing even after his death. it seems to be growing. >> that's one of the reasons you have an administrator and ultimately have an executor. the job of the administrator or executor is to gather all of the assets which are thought to be $300 million to $500 million, and than administrate them. what does that mean? you've got a vault that they drilled into. you've got catalogs. you have recordings. you have copyright. you have royalties. so what this estate is ultimately worth is going to take years to determine. >> he said he saved his best stuff for later. but he had such a sense of business, it seems. >> yes, he did. >> it seem -- he was advised by people smart about the law. how could he not have a will? >> it is shocking to everyone. there may still be a will. may show up somewhere, as we know in michael jackson's case it showed up later. >> people close to him say that if he had wanted a will, he would have had a will. to charlie's point, it still is
7:36 am
baffling to many people. >> many people do not like to face the fact that they are mortal. and there are lots of people who avoid making a will for whatever their outlook is, that says that they should live forever. not a good move. >> thank you. >> there are going to be beneficiaries, the irs and the lawyers, as a result of this. >> unfortunately that is always so if you do not put it in writing. >> always good to have you here. thank you very much. president obama isn't the only member of the first family thinking about life after the white house. malia obama will attend harvard university. the announcement comes after months of speculation. jan crawford is at the white house with how malia will be following a tradition while setting her own pace. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so, i don't think it's a huge surprise that malia's going to be going to the same college that her parents attended. it is a little surprising that she's taking a year off first. she won't be starting right away in the fall. now, everyone's wondering how is she going to spend it.
7:37 am

7:39 am
family. i think it's great that she's taking a year off. when we went to school -- >> went right from high school to college. >> no discussion. >> i think it's great. whether it's for service or a learning experience, do something between high school -- >> historic. i think to be around your parents while they have their final months in office. >> i do, too. congratulations. >> yes. jan, thank you. wild animals discover freedom for the first time after years of abuse. ahead, the grueling and unprecedented effort to reunite the lions in africa after circus raids an ocean away. if you're heading out the door, you can watch us live through the cbs all-access app on your digital device. we know you don't want to miss the first interview with kenneth bay. an american who spent two years in a north korean labor camp. he said it made him better for it. we'll be right back. ahh? yeah, ahh? ahh? ahh? you probably say it a million times a day. ahh? ahh? ahh. but at cigna,

8:05 am
wilmore. and major garrett joins us from washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> from your vantage point, how did the president do? >> reporter: the president cares a great deal about the speech and the comedy routine. he has what many comedians i've talked to at it dinner in the past regard as superb comedic timing, and he cares a great deal about his delivery and how well the jokes went over. and for another night at this correspondents dinner, he really did well. one thing i want to point out, though, the correspondents association is about access to the white house on a regular basis. putting questions to the president. we had a great moment that night, not only the award but the "washington post" announced all of the award winners. one year ago at the dinner, i wore a "free jason" pin. i said to the president, let's try get him home. that's country well remembers, i asked the president about that entire situation. jason had coffee with me the morning of the correspondents dinner to personally thank me for that question. at the dinner he gave me a nine said "jason is freed." all of it came together that
8:06 am
night. it was an incredibly memorable experience for me. >> great honor. >> and we heard from the former house speaker, john boehner. that was a surprise to everyone. he made a cameo giving president obama advice on life after politics. let's watch a bit of the clip. >> so have you got advice for me? >> now you want me advice? first, stop sending me all these linkedin requests. second, here's the beauty of this -- you've got all the time in the world to figure this out. you can just be you for a while. if you know how to do that again. >> so i can just be me? >> so great. >> good. >> his expression, the president's expressions were really priceless. at one point when john boehner offered him a cigarette, he looked at it like, do i, do i, should i, should i? classic. that was my favorite part of the clip. >> yeah. major, what do you think about that? the fact that they were able to get boehner to sit side by side with the president after his presidency was characterized by tough relations with
8:07 am
republicans. >> reporter: sure. i think the white house probably has a different grade on the level of extremism in politics now in the trump era than it did looking at john boehner as speaker of the house. that they might accept him as a more acceptable republican, feeling he was a capitalist faction. maybe they don't think that anymore. and john boehner who still wants to be in the mix, who wouldn't want to be in the mix? it came together. was light. it had great tempo, and it was funny. >> to president the president is to follow a big-deal act in terms of someone who knows how to deliver with the timing. how did larry wilmore do? >> reporter: i talked to him about that before the bid. he said every comedian is nervous going up after the president. he said i was at this dinner a year ago. i was sizing up the room. sizing up the moment. he said to me, before he went up, i'm just going to pretend i'm killing it with every single joke and bury on through, which is exactly what he did. >> i'm not sure it played in the
8:08 am
room. he had a great windup leading to the -- the black man in the country where you couldn't have a black quarterback to the president of the united states. to end with the "n" word left a lot of people with their bob over. i was with bob schieffer on one side, valerie jarrett on the other, and we audibly gasped. i think some thought it was disrespectful and inappropriate because it is a president of the united states. others said bravo to larry wi willmore for keeping it 100% real. for many, they felt it was too real for the room. or anyone, to be honest with you. >> reporter: i detected a slight wince in the eye of the president over that. larry wilmore wanted to do what he did. he did the act exactly the way he wanted to. he was playing to a different audience. not just that room, but everyone watching on tv. >> everybody's talking about it for today. for his comedy writes, they say that's a win for us. we'll see. we'll see. thank you very much, major. >> reporter: sure. a popular circus retires its elephants amid concerns about their welfare.
