7:04 am
seven-foot-long alligator struck. last night we spoke with orange county sheriff jerry demmings. >> the father was nearby when the alligator attacked the child. the father went into the water and tried to wrestle the small child from the grip of the alligator. obviously he was not successful in that effort. >> reporter: within minutes, the tranquil shore turned into a frantic police search zone. >> we have units that are out on the water in boats. we have our aviation unit and helicopters up assisting in the search. we have a dive team that is standing by. >> reporter: the family of four who were on vacation from nebraska were on the beach at disney's grand floridian resort and spa. the 2-year-old had entered the shallows of the secretary of seas -- the seven seas lagoon on the property despite do not swim signs. >> they dialed 911. there was a lifeguard that was
7:05 am
nearby who attempted to assist them. by that time, the alligator had taken the child under water. >> reporter: more than 50 police officers closed off part of the resort, searching both in the water and from the air, but with no success. >> still a search and rescue operation. we are hopeful. we are hoping for the best. sometimes you get the worst, but we're certainly hoping for the best. >> reporter: search teams have brought in sonar to help look into the lake. a disney spokesman said the company is devastated by this. another tough moment for the city still trying to heal. charlie? >> mark, thanks. joining us is nick watt, executive director of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission. good morning. can you tell us how close you are, where you are in finding the 2-year-old? >> we searched throughout the night, and we didn't have any success. i believe as day breaks and we get sunlight we'll have more opportunity to find him.

7:14 am
presmptive republican nominee for president of the united states to bar all muslims from emigrating to america. we hear language that singles out immigrants and suggests entire religious communities are complicit in violence. where does this stop? are we going to start treating all muslim americans differently? are we going to start subjecting them to special surveillance? are we going to start discriminating against them because of their faith? we've heard these suggestions during the course of the campaign. it makes muslim americans feel like their government is betraying them. >> the president also said our government has acted out of fear before and gone on to regret it. a cbs news poll finds 25% of americans approve of donald trump's response to the orlando attacks while 36% approve of
7:15 am
hillary clinton's response. a new poll from bloomberg politics shows that clinton is leading trump by 12 points, 49-37%, in the presidential race. chip reid is in greensboro, north carolina, where trump attacked clinton and said that the president was more angry at him than he was at the orlando shooter. we have a radical islamic terrorism problem, folks. we can say we don't, we can pretend like obama that we don't -- >> reporter: at a rally here last night, donald trump painted an ominous picture of the terror threat facing the u.s. >> we can't continue to live this way. people are going to be afraid to go out -- they already are. >> reporter: arguing we're less safe now than before president obama took office, trump promised he would protect the country better than hillary clinton. >> we're going to go to the movie theater, we're going to go airplanes, we're going to lead our lives like we're supposed to lead our lives. >> reporter: trump all continued to hammer both clinton and the president for avoiding the term
7:16 am
radical islam. >> political correctness is deadly. they don't want to talk about the problem. >> reporter: an argument both mr. obama and secretary clinton countered in their speeches. >> not once has an adviser of mine said, man, if we really use that phrase, we're going to turn this whole thing around. not once. >> is donald trump suggesting that there are magic words that once uttered will stop terrorists from coming after us? >> reporter: trump has another rally today in atlanta where he's expected to continue to hammer president obama's and hillary clinton's terrorism policies as weak and ineffective. norah? >> thank you very much. dan senior was an adviser during the 2012 campaign. thanks for joining us. after trump's comments, you have the top republicans, paul ryan and mitch mcconnell, agreeing with obama and hillary clinton about his comments on muslims.
7:17 am
>> right. . it's a religious test for entering the country, it's unconstitutional, abhorrent, everything about it is reprehensible. as a political matter, this is the point at which donald trump should be unifying the party. you have two events going on. event number one is a bunch of polls, the cbs and bloomberg poll in particular, showing that the gap is widening between hillary and trump. secondly, you have crazy inflammatory, divisive things he's saying that is giving republican leaders pause about unifying. bad polls and inflammatory rhetoric is a bad way to unify your party on the eve of a convention. >> and giving republican candidates for the senate and governor pause, too. >> right. they are very concerned -- obviously in principle they're against what he's saying, and the collateral damage to senate and house races right down the ballot. they're more and more -- more and more leaders saying we could lose eight or nine senate seat. our house majority could be shrunk to a hair.
7:18 am
the republican party could get wiped out. >> that's when he talked about a muslim ban as you suggested. when he says, as you said, that there is a radical islamic terrorism problem in the united states, is that what is -- what is the republican party's response it that use of language by donald trump? >> the idea that political leaders in the moment of this crisis, a terrorist crisis, should be more precise about identifying the threat that we're dealing with, specifically a radical islamic terrorist threat -- people, americans across the political spectrum i don't think sympathize with that. they think that's a legitimate point. they cannot be the sole basis of your critique of the president's response to orlando. there's got to be something more comprehensive. the only piece he adds to his set of prescriptions is this muslim ban which republican leaders are against. >> let me ask a straight political question. you have the judge curiel's decision, the response to orlando, and saying soldiers in
7:19 am
iraq stole. my sense is that republican leaders are more pessimistic about trump's prospects than they've ever been s. there a renewed push to dump him at the convention? >> there are two tracks being discussed. one track continues to be a potential independent candidacy, which is very hard and narrow at this point. the other thing being talked about is whether or not some rules could be amended to actually force a real convention fight to replace him. it's a long shot. i don't know if it will happen. more and more you hear republicans saying that the system, the establishment, the system, the whole machine supporting the republican ticket can't sustain another couple weeks like these last couple of weeks. >> dan, great to see you. ahead, scott pelley talks with a man trapped by the orlando shooter as he lost his best friend in the

7:44 am
a letter from a juror who served under judge persky on turner's case. in theler he says he was -- the letter he says he was shocked and appalled by the minimal sentence. the unnamed sentence called persky's sentence ridiculously lenient. he says it makes a mockery of the whole trial. brock turner's sentence, which could amount to as little as three months in county jail with good behavior, left one juror so angry he wrote to the judge. in a letter obtained by the "palo alto weekly," he writes, "you choose to disregard the jury's findings and believe the defendant's self-serving version of events." in a newly released sentencing document, judge persky pointed to turner's age, lack of criminal history, intoxication, and character letters on his behalf as factors in his decision. he said, "a prison sentence would have a severe impact on him." the juror wrote, "isn't that the point?
7:45 am

it is wednesday, june 15th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including the latest on the alligator that attacked a 2-year-old at disney world. first, here is today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> reporter: this gator attack was a family's nightmare. a disney spokesman said the company is devastated by this. >> we searched throughout the night, and we didn't have any success, but we're going to keep searching until we do. investigators believe he was in the area for several hours before launching the attack at about 2:00 a.m. >> patience carter overheard him say that he wanted america to stop bombing his country. another rally today he's
8:01 am
expected to continue to hammer president obama and clinton's terrorism policy. >> they are very concerned -- obviously in principle they're against what he's saying, and the collateral damage to senate and house races down the ballot -- the republican party could get wiped out. >> these two men went there as a last-minute decision just before last call. >> we never even got that drink. he said he was shocked and appalled by turner's minimal sentence, saying it makes a mockery of the whole trial. hillary clinton and bernie sanders met privately this evening. so privately even bernie didn't know. [ laughter ] it's over, bernie. bye-bye. i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and john heilemann, managing editor of bloomberg politics. gayle is off. searchers in florida this morning are still looking for a 2-year-old boy dragged away from his family by an alligator.
8:02 am
the encounter happened last night at a lake in disney world. recovery crews searched throughout the night but have not found the gator or the boy. >> they did pull four alligators from the lake near disney's grand floridian resort and spa. that's where the boy and his family are staying on vacation. the 2-year-old was in shallow water on the seven seas lagoon. "do not swim" signs are posted in the area. we spoke earlier about the tragedy with nick wiley, executive director of the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission. >> what do we know about what happened here? >> we know that the family was near the water on a sandy beach area. and -- and kind of just out of nowhere, the young boy was grabbed. the father tried to get down and fought valiantly to try to save his son. it's a heartbreaking story, and we just -- our hearts go out to this family and our prayers. and we're going to stay here with them and work with them through this. >> nick, why would a gator do
8:03 am
this? what would prompt an alligator to go after a small child like this? >> well, alligators are not very sophisticated when they're searching for food. and more often than not if they attack a human, they're mistaken. they think it's something else like a raccoon or a dog or something. so normally an alligator does not want to go after a human. so it's usually something -- they're confused and not sure what they're after. >> law enforcement officials describe this more as a recovery effort than a rescue operation. for the first time we're seeing video of the gunman who killed 49 people at a gay nightclub in orlando. a 2012 documentary shows omar mateen working as a secured guard during the cleanup of the bp oil spill. a spokesman for his employer, g4d confirms it is mateen. >> investigators believe mateen was in the general area of pulse for several hours before the shooting. a local tv producer says during the attack mateen called him and pledged his alethal injection --
8:04 am
allegiance to facebook. he did the same to 911. a law enforcement source says mateen's wife, noor zahi salman, said she tried to stop him from committing the attack. she said the two had been to the club at least once before. salman could face criminal charges. survivors have been sharing their stories of history or. patience carter was one of the victims trapped in the bathroom. she was trapped with friends tiara parker and akyra murray. carter shared a poem she wrote the night before that she said shows how she's feeling. >> the guilt of feeling grateful to be alive is heavy. wanting to smile about surviving but not sure if the people around you are ready. as the world mourns the victims killed and viciously slain, i
8:05 am
feel guilty about screaming about my legs and pain because i could feel nothing. like the other 49 who weren't so lucky to feel this pain of mine. i never thought in a million years that this could happen. i never thought in a million years that my eyes could witness something so tragic. looking at the souls leaving the bodies of individuals, looking at the killer's machine gun throughout my right peripheral, looking at the blood and debris covered on everyone's faces, looking at the gunman's feet under the stall as he paces. the guilt of feeling lucky to be alive is heavy. it's like the weight of the ocean's walls crushing uncontrolled by levies. it's like being drug through the grass with a shattered leg and
8:06 am
thrown on the back of a chevy. it's like being rushed to the hospital and told you're going to make it when you laid beside individuals whose lives are brutally taken. the guilt of being alive is heavy. >> carter said this is part of her healing process. jamie yuccas who was at the press conference sent a note saying there wasn't a delay eye in the room after hearing her describe her ordeal. >> you can imagine the feeling, how did i survive. >> yeah. >> why me when my friends died. >> survivor's guilt is a concept that everyone's familiar with. in situations, you imagine it's deeper and longer lasting given the scale of the horror. >> she's young, 20 years old. after the shooting, donald trump repeated that muslims should temporarily be stopped from entering the united states. a bloomberg poll shows 66% of voters are bothered by trump's
8:07 am
proposed ban. and 61% disagree with his suggestion that president obama has been soft on terror because he sides with muslims. >> the orlando attack has renewed the gun control debate on capitol hill. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says he would be open to serious suggestion business stopping terrorists from getting guns. the party do not appear close to a compromise. a receipt report reveals how -- a recent report reveals how 91% of people on the terrorist watch list who tried to buy a gun were able to do so. now nancy cordes shows how the debate is returning to the presidential race. >> reporter: it is one of the most contentious issues on capitol hill and now the presidential race. hillary clinton weighed in tuesday accusing donald trump of "bizarre rants" on the topic and batting back his unfounded claim that she wants to abolish the right to bear arms. >> he said i'll abolish the second amendment. well, that's wrong. >> reporter: speaking in pittsburgh, clinton said she favors a return to the ban on assault weapons and restrictions
8:08 am
for those on the no-fly list. >> people being watched by the fbi for suspect ed terrorist links can buy a gun with no questions asked. that is absurd. >> reporter: democrats on capitol hill chimed in, pointing to a new federal report that shows in the last year alone people on the terrorist watch list were able to pass federal background checks and buy a gun in 223 cases out of 244 attempts. >> let our republican colleagues contemplate that. they want to fight terrorism, but they say they're going to continue a situation where 91% of suspected terrorists can get a begin. >> reporter: republicans have their own bill they say would do the same thing while making sure those denied a gun have a right to appeal it. an assault weapons ban they say would be unconstitutional. >> do you think that the founders anticipated assault weapons that could very quickly kill 50 people? >> right now, our democratic friends seem to be more
8:09 am
interested in opportunistically using this tragedy to advance their agenda rather than looking to work with us to solve problems. >> the amendment is not agreed to. >> reporter: republicans noted that the last time an assault weapons ban came up for a vote in 2013, 16 senate democrats voted against it including west virginia's joe mansion. >> reporter: where do you stand? >> i know with the ar-15 that they're talking about, the type of weapon and what it's used for, the people that go hunting -- we don't use that type of gun -- but there's an awful lot of people who do collect and go sport shooting. they use it for very legitimate, very legal way. >> reporter: the senator did co-author legislation to close loopholes in background checks after the sandy hook massacre, and it waseen a the bestthen. it also failed. he's hoping this tragedy could give it new life.

thoughts on orlando? >> wow, you know, i did a piece for the "new yorker" in the fall talking about school shootings and how contagious they are. you can't understand one shooting in isolation. i hate to use the word, but almost a tradition that develops and grows over time. i think we shouldn't think about orlando in isolation. this is what happens when you've had 20 years of steadily building examples of this behavior. and this shooter, i am quite sure is, feeding off -- i'm going to bet right now, he was obsessed with columbine. >> i was reading your piece in "the new yorker" that you wrote. you talk about the sociologist ralph larkin that argues that harris and klebold laid down the cultural script for many shooters after that. many referencing the columbine shooters. >> this guy is combining the
8:33 am
scripts that come from islamic fundamentalism and isis with the homegrown scripts about expressing this sort of bizarre fantasy. it's a -- we're seeing an evolution, weird evolution of this particular pathology. >> if managss shootings are contagious, it's an epidemic, 140 so far and it's only june. what's the cure? a lot of democrats think it's gun control. i don't think you do. >> i think it's a lot more complicated than that. what's going on now, when you have these subcultures that are feeding off each other, they are referencing nearly that's -- they're watching youtube videos, they're, in the case i wrote about the kid was immersing himself in these obscure website being columbine and watching videos about how to build bombs and comparing himself to previous shooters. it's hard for the rest of society to penetrate that world.
8:34 am
i think gun control has a place, but let's not kid ourselves that if we pass the strictest gun control in the world that we would end this particular behavior. >> let's talk about your podcast series. you're calling it revisionist history. why? >> the idea for the show is that every week for ten weeks, we pick an event, a person, or a -- one case a song, a painting, that happened at some point in the past. and we tell the story and say, you may have remembered this, but maybe you didn't -- let's go back and ask the question did you -- did you remember it correctly? is the truth a little different? is there something we can learn about that story today? >> what's an example? >> one story, the opening episode which airs on thursday is about a painting that was -- in the 1870s was most famous painting in england. it was painted by a woman. one of the first prominent female painters in england.
8:35 am
the story is all about what happens to the painter, this woman, after the painting becomes famous. it's a story about what does it mean to be the first woman to penetrate an all-male world. that's where i want to lead the listener to. >> that's elizabeth thompson, the painter. in the podcast you talk about the australian prime minister gillard. >> the first female, if you look at previous examples of women who become the first head of state in their country, the examples are really a little bit sobering. it's not easy to be the first woman to take that. if hillary wins, my prediction is she's going to be in for a tough time in a way that i don't think people appreciate because there's a kind of -- what happened to gillard is interesting. she's elected, people say, wow, we final elected a woman. there's a backlash.
8:36 am
