welcome to "cbs this morning." the republican party is sharply divided over its presumptive nominee for president, donald trump. the billionaire businessman knocked out 16 opponents and is the last candidate standing. of the republicans, many aries are tating to rally around him. the last gop presidents say they have no plans to endorse trump. george h. w. bush and george w. bush intend to sit out this election. >> nebraska senator ben sasse is still against trump. so is senator lindsey graham. and governor charlie baker of massachusetts told reporters the things trump said about women and about muslims and about religious freedom, i just can't support. >> other republicans like new hampshire senator kelly ayotte say they'll support the nominee but will not endorse him. major garrett has covered the gop race since it began a year ago. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump began the general election conversation with some of his biggest headline-grabbers from a primary. a temporary ban on muslim
7:04 am
immigration and deportation of up to 11 million undocumented immigrants. democrats seized on both. where republicans debated what to do about their new leader, trump tried to mend party fences. >> as i suspend my campaign today, i have renewed faith, deeper faith that the lord will show me the way forward. >> reporter: after only one primary victory, john kasich ended his long-shot candidacy saying the politics of anger overcame his positive message. >> it wasn't sexy. it wasn't a great sound bite. >> reporter: earlier john kasich mocked kasich. >> i see him -- oh. i don't get it. i've never seen a man make so many news conferences while he's eating. he's always eating. >> reporter: now with party unity on his mind, the presumptive nominee said wednesday kasich could be his running mate. >> i would be interested in vetting john. i like john. whether he's vice president or
7:05 am
not, i think he'll be very helpful with ohio. >> reporter: there is no formal vetting process yet, but trump is already in general election mode, promising he will remain unpredictable and combative. >> i am who i am. i don't like to change. i don't like it really change. i feel i'm a presidential person. >> reporter: both trump and hillary clinton, his likely democratic opponent, are unpopular with voters. while a recent national survey shows more than half of voters report negative feelings about clinton, more than 60% have unfavorable impressions of trump. still, former rnc chairman haley barbour says clinton's poor standing gives trump a chance. >> he's got the most negative rating of any front-runner for either party's presidential nomination in the history of polling. the only saving grace is that hillary clinton has the second worst. >> reporter: senate majority leader mitch mcconnell yesterday endorsed trump but said the burden is on troump unify the -- on trump to unify the party. trump said he will raise money for the general election and set a goal of $1 billion, some from
7:06 am
him and some from gop donors with, in all probability, ties to special interests. norah? >> thank you very much. the general election is still six months away. but if it was held today, a recent poll shows hillary clinton would beat donald trump 54%-41%. clinton has 92% of the delegates she needs to clinch the democratic nomination. bernie sanders says he's staying in the race. nancy cordes with what we might see between now and november. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. clinton and trump are grappling with how aggressive to get now with six months to go before election day. trump made his first move to the middle yesterday saying he is now open to raising the minimum wage, while clinton focused on national security arguing he's too dangerous to lead. >> you've seen i'm a counterpuncher more than anything else. i don't like hitting first. >> reporter: he's known for his killer left hook. donald trump insisted wednesday he'll let hillary clinton set the tone of the race. >> it depends on where she's coming from.
7:07 am
i can handle the low road if i have to do it. we've had some low roads over the last few months. >> reporter: really? >> we'll find out whether we have to go that direction. >> reporter: clinton wasted no time labeling trump as risky and erratic. >> i don't think we can take a risk on a loose cannon. he was a loose cannon. i think he is a loose cannon, and loose cannons tend to misfire. >> reporter: she has at the outset a distinct advantage. a recent poll finds 61% of female voters back clinton. 35% back trump. >> i think it will change rapidly because women want security. women want strong military. they want to know that they're secure in our nation. >> reporter: clinton argued this is one of his biggest weaknesses. >> donald trump said it's okay for other countries to get nuclear weapons. i think that's just downright dangerous. >> reporter: for now, she's the one fighting on two fronts. >> i think we have a path toward victory. i admit that it is a narrow path. >> reporter: unlike trump's primary tonight -- primary
7:08 am
opponents, clinton's is staying put. >> do we have your word in this interview that you're not going to drop out before the democratic convention? >> absolutely. we have made that commitment. i'm going to be in it until the last vote is cast. >> reporter: to catch clinton, sanders would need to win 85% of the pledge delegates in the remaining primary states, plus he'd have to convince superdelegates to swing his way. he's been making the case to them for weeks and hasn't made much headway. >> thanks. mark leibovich, chief correspondent for "the new york times" magazine is in washington and has covered several candidates on the campaign trail including donald trump. good morning. >> hi. good to be here. >> how does trump handle the fact that he's not going to be able to get the endorsement of some people that generally a republican nominee would have? >> i think you do it in pure trump fashion. you're dismissive of it. you ignore it. and you say, look, i'm running a different kind of campaign. i'm a different kind of candidate. i wouldn't expect the
7:09 am
traditional figures to get behind me. having said that, look, this is the general election, a time to consolidate your support within the party. and this is not going to be helpful in that regard. >> donald trump says that he will pivot, that he will change his tone as we head to the general election. your article seems to indicate that you do not seem convinced of that. >> first of all, he's talked about pivoting maybe eight or nine times in the last two months. it generally holds less than 48 hours if that. so his recent history is not very good. it's holding a pivot. look, i mean, there is this sort of --not a blank slate, but certainly a rethinking that goes on generally in this season once you have too ii presumptive nominees. the question is, has trump just done too much damage and defined himself so deeply that it's really a no turning back situation for him. >> what message does it send that president hw bush and w bush will not endorse donald trump? do you expect to hear the same from mitt romney? >> i do expect that there will
7:10 am
be more than that. there will be a mitt romney, probably a few senators and governors along the way. i think it sends a huge message. i mean, it's easy to dismiss the bushes as yesterday's politics, as yesterday's republican party. there's a lot of suburban republicans, a lot of mainstream republicans who -- i don't know if they revere them, but they respect them a great deal and will follow the lead. i think it's a very big statement. >> a lot of people who would support trump say so what, i don't care if the bushes support him or not. does it matter maybe more in fund-raising? the money that trump wants to raise? >> i think it matters more in a general election. i think a lot of people who support trump within a republican primary counts for 20%, 25% of the overall electorate. this is a different population that he is trying to appeal to. it involves, again, mainstream republicans, people who wouldn't have supported him in the primaries. also swing voters. so again, i think that's an important -- an important move. i think that it will -- especially right out of the gate, it's a big statement.
7:11 am
>> i hear from political reporters that the clinton campaign has a war room and a lot of negative stuff ready to go. what exactly is it that they have that hasn't been said? >> there's probably a lot. there's been a lot of books written about donald trump. there's a lot of information out that i assume they have or other news organizations will have. this is a strange election in that both candidates are so thorughly defined. probably two of the biggest celebrities that have ever run for president. i think new information is not the kind of thing that will move this. the negative impressions are solidified. it's a question of how they can reverse that at the margins and whether it can get close enough for trump to get over the line. >> certainly will be interesting to watch. thank you very much, mark leibovich joining us from washington, d.c. firefighters are struggling to contain the monster canadian wildfire that triggered a massive evacuation. >> you could feel the heat.
7:12 am
>> the huge flames forcing nearly 90,000 people to flee. it's destroyed an area estimated to be the size of manhattan. the province of alberta is under a state of emergency. we have more from conklin, alberta, south of the fire's epicenter. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is now the largest evacuation in canada's history. a lot of these folks fleeing their homes are running out of gas on the road trying to find shelter. these folks are giving out free fuel, free water to the people of ft. mcmurray who have already lost almost everything. >> i can feel the heat here. this is insane. >> reporter: towering walls of flames surrounded thousands of drivers trying to evacuate ft. mcmurray on wednesday. >> oh, my god! the house is going to burn down! >> reporter: entire neighborhoods are now piles of ash and charred metal. 16,000 homes and buildings have been destroyed. >> didn't even let us take our
7:13 am
things. we lost everything. we only have what we have on our backs. >> reporter: the city's only major highway quickly became gridlocked as drivers headed toward evacuation centers north and south of the city. >> once i looked up, and basically it's raining ash. and your eyes are burning. you know it's time to pack up and leave. >> reporter: a webcam showed the flames overtaking ft. mcmurray national airport where all commercial flights have been canceled. >> let's go! let's go! >> reporter: people were ordered aboard buses for the five-hour trip south to edmonton. >> i'm very scared. very nervous. i don't know if i'll have a home to come back to. i have my dog and my family. that's all i need. >> reporter: drivers have lined up for hours waiting for fuel. at many stations, it's run out. canada's prime minister, justin trudeau, pledged his government's total support.
7:14 am
>> certainly in ft. mcmurray the difficult times they're going through now is something that we're going to unite around across the country. >> reporter: the canadian armed forces are helping more than 250 firefighters, helicopters, and air tankers battle the raging flames. darby allen is ft. mcmurray's fire chief. >> it's been the worst day of my career. it will be devastating. this is going to go on. this is going to take a while to come back from. >> reporter: as for the weather today, there's good news and bad news. the good news is the temperature has dropped dramatically. the bad news is the winds are still expected to be strong. and that really is what is fueling this fire. >> ben tracy in alberta, canada. dramatic new battlefield video appears to show the intense fire-fight with isis that killed an american navy s.e.a.l. in iraq. [ gunfire ] >> the deadly fire-fight took
7:15 am
place north of mosul. holly williams is in istanbul, turkey. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this new video appears to show part of the intense battle around the iraqi town of te tete tel asqof after it was attacked by more than 100 isis fighters including suicide bombers. the video shows a convoy of vehicles coming under fire. u.s. troops and the kurdish fighters they're supporting apparently running for cover. we also see what appears to be a u.s. black hawk helicopter bearing medical insignia. as we know, petty officer first class charles keating was shot during that battle. he was medivaced out by helicopter but later died. the third u.s. compat death in iraq since the fight against isis began. there are over 5,000 service members in iraq, mostly working as military advisers. the u.s. says that this is not a combat mission. this video seems to clearly show that at least some of those
7:16 am
american troops are involved in combat. norah? >> an important distinction. thank you very much, holly williams in istanbul. a new revelation points to prescription painkillers being the focus of the investigation to prince's death. "the minneapolis star-tribune" reports that percocet was found in the music icon's system. the paper cites a source familiar with the investigation who says it's not yet clear if the powerful painkiller contributed to prince's death. jamie yuccas is outside his famous paisley park compound in chanhassen, minnesota, with new details about efforts to save prince. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah. we now know the dea and u.s. attorney's office are involved in prince's death investigation. at the same time, we've learned that prince's people reached out to a california doctor to help the singer with painkiller addiction less than 24 hours before he died. >> that mission was to get prince to a doctor in minnesota
7:17 am
on thursday morning. >> reporter: attorney william mauzy says dr. howard kornfeld, who runs an addiction facility in california, could not immediately clear his schedule. instead, his son, andrew kornfeld, took a redeye flight to meet with the singer. andrew wanted to convince prince to check into his father's recovery without walls facility in california after he was evaluated in minnesota. when andrew arrived at prince's paisley park estate, it was already too late. >> andrew heard the screams and went to the elevator where he saw that prince was unconscious. >> reporter: mauzy says andrew kornfeld made the call to 911. in the transcript of that call, kornfeld tells the dispatcher, "we're at prince's house. the person is dead here, and the people are just distraught." his attorney says kornfeld had a supply of a medication used to treat pain management and addiction. >> those pills were to be delivered to the minnesota doctor. >> reporter: prince was notoriously private. friends and people who worked with the singer over the years
7:18 am
told us they never saw any addiction to pain pills. however, cbs news confirmed that prescription painkillers were found inside his home. officials have not released a cause of death. we're told that autopsy results as well as cox psychology not expected -- toxicology are not expected back for a couple of weeks. when mauzy was asked about carnes feld transporting -- kornfeld transporting the medications to health insurance's house, he declined comment. the federal government could sue north carolina over a controversial new law. the justice department sent a warning to governor mccrory. it said that the law limiting protections to lgbt people violates the civil rights act. backlash began in march when a law required transgender people to use bathrooms that match the sex of their birth certificates. north carolina faces losing hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding. more than 30 airline passengers are hurt after their flight hit severe and unexpected

lawsuit seeking class-action status. it says at least one chain is deliberately misleading consumers with multiple cases where the wines on the shelf are different from the bottles in stock. carter evans looks into the charges. red blend 2013 for $17.95. bottle says it's 2012. >> reporter: bottle after bottle after bottle. cbs went to five bev locations in northern california and discovered mismatches between the highly rated design described on the signs and what's on the shelves. >> what's the better bottle? >> reporter: it's not just bevmo and not just california. we found similar discrepancies at three liquor stores in new jersey. bevmo is the only retailer targeted in this lawsuit seeking class-action status. claims consumers are being misled even though there's a disclaimer printed on each shelf
7:44 am
tag. >> we're suing bevmo because bevmo is engaging in an intentional bait and switch fraud. >> reporter: not just in the store. we're going to order four wines. we ordered four bottles of highly rated wine on bevmo's website for in-store pickup. we even clicked the option that says we didn't want vintage substitutes. when we showed up, we got wines from four different years. three with lower ratings. the bevmo clerk offered an explanation. he said we could get a refunds if we didn't like the wine. internal emails obtained by cbs news confirm bevmo has been aware of the issue since at least 2010. one reads, "this is a corporate problem. we all have heard this complaint about vintages many times." we asked los angeles sommelier
7:45 am
what she thought. >> i don't think it matters. >> reporter: how much does vintage matter? >> when you're talking about vintage wines, it matters. >> reporter: $25 and under? >> in that price range, it doesn't make a difference. >> reporter: still, wine sellers have an ethical obligation to tell the truth. >> there should be a level of trust between the consumer and wine merchants. >> reporter: in a statement to cbs news, bevmo said, "meeting our customers' needs and expectations is our number-one priority. while we cannot comment on pending litigation, we take this very seriously. we are confident our policies and practices fully comply with the law." >> if we look at their disclaimer, it's down here. and the reason you can't read it or even see it is because the way their advertisements are designed, you can't read it. >> reporter: the lawsuit has been in legal limbo since 2014, but a hearing is set for next week. for "cbs this morning," carter

evans, los angeles. >> interesting. >> yeah. >> i was going to say something about politics, not about that very good piece about wine. >> yeah. >> what were you going to say about politics? >> would you like to hear that? >> yes, i would. >> it's interesting to me that in america we thought long and hard about somebody emerging as a presidential candidate who comes not from politics but from business or from some other institution, the military. >> right. >> then we get one, and it's so controversial. >> and to hear that he just became a registered republican in 2012. i did not know that until "the new york times" piece yesterday. we'll be there every step of the way. >> do you know what else was fun to watch yesterday? >> what? >> gwen stefani. >> that's a perfect segue, norah o'donnell. gwen stefani, how about that, helps james corden. the girl's good. >> also a couple of other people in the back seat. >> yeah. some familiar faces back seat, too. roll tape, please. >> thank you very much for

8:00 am
top of the morning to you. thursday, may 5th, 2016, cinco de mayo. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there's more real news ahead including republicans who still cannot support donald trump. can a divided party get behind him? we'll ask bob schieffer how he thinks it could play out. first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. trump has said he will raise money for the general election. some from him and gop donors with, in all probability, ties to special interests. >> clinton and trump are grappling with how aggressive it could get now with six months to go before election day. >> there is a rethinking that goes on once you have two presumptive nominees. the question is, has trump done too much damage? the largest evacuation in canada's history. a lot of folks threeing their
8:01 am
homes are run -- folks fleeing their homes are running out of gas on the road. these folks are giving out free fuel, free water. the intense battle around the iraqi town. as we know, petsy officer first class charles keating was shot during the battle. >> when we're not shooting, we spend a lot of time at this hotel when we're not allowed to leave without a government guide. trump told "the new york times" he'll announce his choice for vice presidential candidate in early july. it's not sure who is on his list, but he's giving hints. >> now that donald trump is the nominee, some are saying they'll vote for hillary clinton. republicans are saying they will vote for hillary clinton. hillary's gotten so confident, said, who wants to talk benghazi? ask me anything! i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell.
8:02 am
trump has outrun all of his presidential rivals but is left with a sharply divided party. many republicans say they need more time to decide if they can support him. and already some big names are saying no thanks. >> president george w bush and hw bush say they iran endorsing trump. some are falling in line behind trump, and others are sticking to their vows never to support him. bob schieffer, our former chief washington correspondent and moderator of "face the nation, "cbs news tribute contributor. hello. both former bushes say we're not going to endorse him. others saying, john kasich said to norah never would he consider running as a vice presidential candidate. what does this say to you, and how important are the endorsements? >> i think it's been a long time since we've had somebody wrap up the nomination for either party and get the kind of reactions
8:03 am
we're seeing to donald trump. i mean, the two most recent republican presidents say thanks, no thanks, we'll be sitting out this year's election. i think one of the most telling statements this morning was in the "washington post." fred malik, a fundraiser of all fundraisers among republicans, he has been chairman of the republican conventions in the past. he was john mccain's campaign manager. this morning he's quoted as saying in the post, "i don't see any way they can raise the money to be competitive." he's talking about donald trump. you also have here a former member of the bush administration, elliott cohen, in an op-ed page this morning say, "we need to form a third party." and on the other side of the republican party, you have ben sasse, the republican tea party
8:04 am
senator from out in nebraska, saying we need to form a third party. i am not sure, and i mean this, i'm not sure that the republican party as we now know it is going survive this election. this is going to be something unlike anything we have seen. >> if it doesn't survive the election, what happens to it? you mean it splinters into multiple parties? >> i don't know what happens. i mean, it managed to come back together in 1964 after barrie goldwater led the -- barry goldwater led the party to at that point a historic landslide defeat. we may see two kind of parties, maybe a center right party, something closer to the middle, or you may see these tea party folks go off on their own. i mean, this is -- you know, usually when somebody wraps up the nomination, you see party leaders the next day saying, thank goodness, now we can
8:05 am
unify. what people are saying this morning is oh, my god, what have we done here? we just never had anything like this. >> you know, sometimes in a political campaign people say, well, i said things in the heat of the moment, but now's time to buckle down because we do not want hillary clinton to be the next president. do you think donald trump can unify the party? he says that he can. >> well, i think the one unifying thing they have is opposition to hillary, who as we saw during the indiana primary, barely half of democratic voters in indiana said that they considered her trustworthy. she's not the strongest democrat the democrats have ever put out there. and if there is one thing that will unify republicans, it will probably be hillary clinton. i mean, look at the "wall street journal's" late editorial this morning. it basically said we're going to
8:06 am
examine both candidates, but it's not much of a choice. i think -- i think if the republicans are to have a chance, i think that's what it will be. but by the same token, i think you're going to see a lot of democrats who are just lukewarm maybe about hillary clinton who are saying woo cannot let donald trump -- saying we cannot let donald trump be president. i guess what i think the bottom line in all of this is is we are about to see the nastiest general election campaign in modern history. i just don't see any other way this thing will go. people keep talking about let's go back to the issues. donald trump says if they're happy to go the low road, i'll go the low road. i've done it before. i think we'll see a lot of low road traffic on this. >> have you talked to anybody in washington who sees a way for donald trump to win?
8:07 am
>> yeah. for all of the reasons i talked about. that he is going to bring new people into the campaign. people who maybe haven't voted before. what is so difficult, what's going to be so difficult here for him is -- i've said this times, ronald reagan got a smaller percentage of the white vote when he was elected in 1980 than mitt romney got the last time out. the demographics are very much against donald trump. he's run a campaign that, you know, his core support is white people. and you would have to have a turnout of white people unlike anything we've seen for him to win. he's not going to get much on the north side. >> excellent point. >> thanks. >> good to see you, bob. take care.
8:08 am
>> thank you. >> gayle's wearing purple for you. donald trump used unorthodox tactics to become the republican nominee. theyed whiched tough language, identifying many of the 16 opponents the way he wanted voters to see them. julianna goldman looks at how donald trump could ride his marketing skills to the white house. >> reporter: in the business, donald trump was known as a master brander and won the nomination by bringing those tactics to politics, zeroing in on vulnerabilities and turning them into labels his opponents could not shake. until now, hillary clinton has been watching from afar. >> lyin' ted cruz. we know lyin' ted, satellite [ applause ] >> little marco. we have low-energy jeb bush. you have to brand people a certain way when they're your opponents. >> reporter: donald trump has made good on his word by branding rivals. >> he lies like nobody can lie. lyin' ted cruz. lyin', lyin' ted. >> reporter: relentlessly repeating catchy, demeaning nicknames. >> little marco. little marco.
8:09 am
>> reporter: from debate stages to twitter storms until those names stuck. >> donald trump is the best marketer that we've ever had in american politics. >> reporter: republican strategist frank runn said trump brought his reality star persona to presidential politics. >> the reason it's so effective is that so many americans are so angry with politics that they're willing to listen to these attacks and willing to believe it because they hate professional politicians. >> reporter: from former texas governor rick perry -- >> he put glasses on so people will think he's smart. >> reporter: to long-time senator lindsey came from. >> lindsey graham. a total lightweight. >> he doesn't really see natural boundaries. >> reporter: darby fox is a behavioral therapist. she says we gravitate to leaders, real or perceived. >> we want to believe that there's somebody out there bigger than we are that can take care of us. >> reporter: one by one, trump's mind games brought down the rest of the republican field. >> i am sick and tired of him going after may family --
8:10 am
>> reporter: first there was low-energy jeb bush. marco rubio initially tried to take the high road and ignore trump's barbs, but eventually he couldn't resist attacks of his own. >> you know what they say about men with small hands. you can't trust them. >> reporter: which led to this moment in campaign history -- >> look at those hands r. they small hands? and he referred to my hands. if they're small, something else must be small. i guarantee you there's no problem. >> reporter: with the goff field eliminated, trump has zeroed in on his next opponent. >> an election between crooked hillary and wonderful donald. >> reporter: if there's a lesson clinton can take from the republican primary -- >> i have yet to see a single candidate who's been successful by trying to out-trump trump. >> reporter: clinton says she's been in the arena for 25 years and everything that can be thrown at someone in politics has come her way. gayle, trump has shown himself ready and willing to go where no

what about revenue? >> it's to make money. >> no, if you show revenue, people will ask how much, and it will never be enough. the company that was the 100 x or 1,000 x becomes the 2 x dog. if you have no revenue, you can say you're potential pure play. it's not about how much you earn, it's about what your
8:17 am
worth. who's worth the most? companies that lose many. >> hbo silicon valley saying revenue is not equal. can ping pong determine if a tech sbubl bubble is pop? one hole saler says the sales of tables rise and fall with startups that rise and fall. this year, sales plunged 50%. nicholas thompson is with us to sort it out. hello, nick thompson. so ping pong sales are anecdotable. what does that say to you? about a tech sfwhubl. >> i think it's -- bubble? >> i think it's one of most interesting data points. when people are no longer enthusiastic about the future, they stop buyi ing ping pong dabls. it shows there's a little bit of dampening of enthusiasm. >> as the clip showed, the valuation of a company is not
8:18 am
always tied to revenue especially in silicon valley. the "wall street journal" tallied at least 145 companies valued over a billion dollars. >> yeah. >> what does that tell us? >> the way silicon valley works is very different from the rest of the world. typically with the startup company, the first step is you get a profit. the second step is you get users. that's when you get funded. the third step is you make money. you get money from venture capitalists and set valuation before you actually know whether you can make money. we can say, that's ridiculous, that shouldn't happen. that's how google got big. that's how facebook got big. >> how amazon got big. >> right. but sometimes it doesn't work as well. with twitter -- twitter got a huge number of users and couldn't figure out how to make money. it's having troubles. creates a lot of the confusion in the markets. it's not necessarily a completely bad thing. >> and it's not necessarily revenue. it's how much money goes to the bottom line and how much of that money is reinvested in the business model. >> right. you can get a lot of revenue if you spend money to get money. i have a business, i'll say i'll
8:19 am
give you $10 if you give me $5, i can get revenue but will lose money in the long run. that's what happened the last time there was hyper enthusiasm in silicon valley in about 2000. >> what are your venture capital friends saying to you? >> there's little concern now because so many people are putting money into venture capital funds. there's still excitement that this is where the money is made in silicon valley. the venture capitalists don't have as many places to invest it. either all this money will go to a small number of trumpians which could cause problems, or the venture capital people saying we might give money back. we may shut down a fund or two. there's too much venture capital and not enough startups now. >> can you compare to the dotcom bubble of the '90s? >> yeah. in business generally, there's about, say, this much malarkey. in silicon valley now, there's maybe this much malarkey. in silicon valley in the late '90s, there was this much malarkey. we're in a different period now. >> amazon is interesting, for
8:20 am
years they didn't make money. they were getting revenues by investing in things. as of this season, amazon has reported the best profits of any of them. >> the model is absolutely working at amazon now. >> yep. >> thank you, nick thompson. good to see you. next, your first look at team usa getting ready for the america's cup. we're on the hudson river as new york celebrates something that has not happened in nearly a century. you're watching "cbs this morning." and i'm doing just fine. claritin provides 24-hour relief of symptoms that can be triggered by over 200 allergens. yeah, over 200 allergens! with claritin my allergies don't come between me and victory. live claritin clear. i smbut ended up nowhere.a lot now i use this. the nicoderm cq patch with unique extended release technology
