welcome to cbs "this morning." john heilemann is with us. hillary clinton hits the campaign trail in nebraska today with a new lead over donald trump. a cbs news poll out this morning shows clinton with a seven-point advantage over trump, 46% to 39%. that is a four-point bump for clinton. the candidates were tied after the republican convention. >> 36% of voters hold a favorable view of hillary clinton. that's up five points from last week. but 50% still have an unfavorable view of her. 52% view trump unfavorably. >> donald trump is facing strong criticism for his reaction to a speech of the father of an american muslim soldier killed in iraq. khizr khan challenged trump's knowledge of the constitution.
trump tweeted he was viciously attacked by mr. khan and asked, quote, am i not allowed to respond. major garrett is in washington. >> reporter: after the father of an american soldier killed fighting for his country called out donald trump, trump responded by questioning that father's religion and even his right to speak about sacrifice. this time, his quick reactions are deepening republican reservations about their standard bearer. >> who wrote that? did hillary's script writers write it. >> reporter: donald trump turned on khizr khan lashing out from this criticism. >> you have sacrificed nothing. and no one. >> reporter: when pressed on his own history of sacrifice, trump said this. >> i have created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs. built great structures. i've had tremendous success. i think --
>> those are sacrifices? >> oh, sure, i think they're sacrifices. >> reporter: trump even implied that khan may have silenced his wife for religious reasons. >> maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say. >> reporter: mrs. khan defended herself writing, without saying a thing, all the world felt my pain. in an interview, mr. khan questioned trump's character. >> i want his family to counsel him, teach him some empathy. he will be a better person if he could become, but he is a black soul. >> reporter: khan urged house speaker paul ryan and mitch mcconnell to denounce trump. both released statements sunday praising the khan family and repeating their objection to trump's proposed ban on muslims entering the country. trump also continues to face questions about his relationship with russian president vladimir putin. >> i spoke indirectly and
directly with president putin who could not have been nicer. >> reporter: now trump says he can't remember if he even met putin. >> i don't think i ever met him. >> reporter: trimp subsequently acknowledged khan's son was an american hero and says his disagreement with the khan family is about radical islamic terror and the inability of theist to stop it. mike pence last night said in a statement that trump policies will keep other american families from facing the enduring heartbreak of the khan family. >> thank you very much, major. hillary clinton is sharpening her attacks on donald trump today. they are crisscrossing the swing states of pennsylvania and ohio. pennsylvania and ohio are among 11 key states. in the latest battleground tracker, that poll shows that hillary clinton leads donald trump 43% to 41% across the
swing states. nancy cordes is in washington with more on that. >> reporter: it won't surprise you to hear that the khan controversy was a big topic for clinton this weekend, too. she argued trump has demeaned so many people at this point it's hard to know where the bottom is. >> donald trump is not a normal presidential candidate. somebody who attacks everybody has something missing. >> reporter: campaigning in pennsylvania and ohio, clinton said trump is so unfit for office, republicans should wake away. >> i think this is a time to pick country over party. >> reporter: their first joint bus tour took clinton and tim kaine through traditionally republican territory. they repeatedly called trump out f outsouring. >> why does he make suits in
mexico instead of ohio. he says he can't find any american workers. shame on you, donald trump. shame on you. >> does anybody here believe one word of what he says? not one word, folks. >> reporter: but the "washington post" had trouble believing clinton sunday for this answer on her e-mails. >> after a long investigation, james comey said none of those things that you told the american public were true. >> chris, that's not what i heard director comey said. he said that my answers were truthful and what i said is consistent with what i have told the american people. >> reporter: the post called that highly misleading because the fbi director only said that clinton's comments to his investigations were truthful while he acknowledged some of her public assertions were not. donald trump is raising objections about the
presidential debate schedule. the candidates are set to face j faceoff three times. trump's campaign is upset that two debates will take place on the same night as nationally televised nfl games. trump said he received a letter from the nfl about it, but the league denies sending him any letters. now the commission on presidential debates is pushing back. they said more than 18 months of planning have gone into the date saying, quote, it is impossible to avoid all sporting events. >> face the nation moderator john dickerson is with us. do we expect the question about khan and question about putin to have danimaging sustainable effect? >> you're right to be skeptical about the long-term. particularly the back and forth with mr. khan has the potential to be a problem if the following
happens which is that it atta attaches to an underlying issue about donald trump. there are these issues of whether he has the temperament for the job. with a certain set of voters they do worry about him. is he able to stop his impulses. in this case, he's a counter puncher. it's the issue that these are died in the service of this country. >> somebody once said when you're in a hole stop digging. >> that's right. the people who love him would look at this and say they're picking on him as they always did and this is a small deal. >> he has said, though, john, when somebody attacks me, i attack back. some people say what's wrong with that. >> not only what's wrong with that, that's what we need. they're looking at him and saying is that fighting back quality all that he's got, or does he have some restraint that's also required for the job.
that's what this might highlight. >> did people say this might be like joseph welch moment. my question is whether over time the accumulation of these events as the undecided voters start to pay for attention whether it may take a toll on him. >> i think that's the thing to look for. the accumulation plus the republicans calling him out. paul ryan and mitch mcconnell are still 100% donald trump supporters in terms of their party loyalty. but they are -- they both made comments about this. you add the accumulation plus the sort of people from inside the republican party criticizing him and that might cause just what you're talking about. >> we have a bump for hillary clinton coming out of the dmocratic convention. will that even out? >> let's see where we are in a week. what's interesting as a smart political analyst mentioned on "face the nation" yesterday, look at the college -- the white college voter, white college educated voter. she has a big bump in our poll
in that group. republicans have always won that since 1952. that's a part of the republican coalition. hillary clinton is now up by five or six points in our poll with that group. that's important because she's basically reaching into the republican group and that's part of a -- >> -- soccer moms? >> is that group -- that is essentially the soccer mom group. but republicans have won that. and so for her to be grabbing that is -- and that's the group that we're talking about here that's nervous. republicans who traditionally would vote for a republican candidate who are nervous about the things we were just discussing. >> must have been a smart analyst. >> it was. >> wonder who that would have been. >> exactly. >> she's in pennsylvania. she's in the rust belt. she's trying to dive into what is expected to be possibility of support for him. >> you hear kaine talk about we care about workers. that's a group that donald trump's going to win. they just need to not have donald trump win by so much. >> thanks, john.
>> in the next hour, we'll talk to john about his new book. it contains some of the memorable stories in american presidential campaign history. >> john dickerson, he's something else. a little bit later on. downpours overnight moved northeast causing heavy floods in the northern new jersey area. this rainfall of devastating weekend floods west of baltimore that killed two people. around a half foot of rain led to flash flooding saturday night. the rushing water swept away the cars and destroyed homes and businesses. errol barnett is there. >> reporter: ellicott city is waking up today after being sucker punched by a powerful storm. 6 inches of rain fell within two hours on saturday. the historic flooding that followed killed at least two people and left much of historic main street behind me
devastated. all people here could do was try and keep each other safe. this dramatic cell phone video shows people in ellicott city linking arms to save a woman from her car as it was being washed away by the force of the flood. >> we all started yelling. >> reporter: david was recording the rain sweeping through the main street art gallery he owns with his wife. he came out and saw people taking refuge in their foyer. that's when they spotted the stranded driver. >> the water went from just above the curb to 20 inches higher in the street in just a couple minutes. >> i will never forget seeing that video of the human chain saving that person out of that car. i'll never forget that. >> oh, my god. >> reporter: scenes like this play throughout the small toin 60 miles west of baltimore. water rushed through the streets, turning roads into
rivers and sweeping away anything in its path. >> there's people in the water! >> reporter: diners at this restaurant watched cars, some with people holding onto them, float away. the aftermath was just as striking. in some cases, cars ended up stacked on one another, right next to destroyed homes, businesses, and streets. maryland governor larry hogan toured the devastation and declared a state of emergency for the county. >> we're going to provide as much assistance as we can. >> it's going to be a minimum of months until we can reach that point of anything like restoring the previous state of the community. >> reporter: all of this was just so unexpected. officials say at least 200 buildings were damaged, most of them significantly, and some of them completely destroyed. and consider this. 170 vehicles were swept up by this flood. john? >> thanks errol. we have new details this
morning on the hot air balloon disaster that killed 16 people in texas. the balloon crashed saturday after appearing to hit power lines. omar villafranca is in texas with how federal regulators tried to prevent this kind of tragedy. >> reporter: good morning, the hot air balloon hit some high tension power lined located just beyond those railroad tracks. there was fog in the area saturday morning, and investigators are now looking at pictures and videos posted to social media from inside and outside of the balloon to try to figure out what went wrong. jason shared this video of his sister and her daughter on board the hot air balloon on saturday. he fears they are among the 15 passengers killed in the crash. >> all the way until 7:35, she was posting video and pictures. and then it just stopped.
>> reporter: following what was scheduled to be a 6:49 a.m. departure time, this video shows the balloon taking off from the air park after a delay of as much as 20 minutes. at about 7:15 a.m., a witness took this photo of the balloon and later posted it to facebook writing, you could tell there were a lot of people on it. 27 minutes later, the local utility company reported a power line trip immediately followed by a call to 911. >> there's physical evidence to ka indicate that the balloon or some component of the balloon hit the wires themselves and not the tower. >> reporter: the basket was discovered about 8 miles north of the air park and the balloon about three-quarters of a mile beyond that. >> when i got to right about where that red vehicle is over there, that's when the thing just went up. >> reporter: 49-year-old skip
nichols was the balloon's pilot. steve bridniak flew with him two months ago. >> he was constantly looking around. he was definitely checking for power lines. >> reporter: two years ago, the faa urged the aviation administration to look at balloon measures. the faa rejected those recommendations saying they would not result in significantly higher level of operational safety. >> the full board has classified their response as an unacceptable response. >> reporter: three cameras were found at the scene and investigators are going to try to recover those photos and look for any clues. the ntsb also planned to talk to one of the members of the ground crew who was following the balloon and in contact with the pilot during the flight. gayle? >> a lot of questions there. fast-moving wildfire in montana forced hundreds of

from floods to fires to olympians being robbed. also coming up, former director of the cia and nsa, general michael hayden is in studio 57. we'll ask him about donald trump's response to questions about vladimir putin and aggressions in ukraine. it is time to show you some of this morning's headlines. "time" reports on the campus carry law today in texas. it allows people to carry into public university buildings. the law goes into effect on the 50th anniversary of the clock tower shooting at the university of texas. the "new york times" profiled a patient with hodgkin's lymphoma whose cancer spread despite chemotherapy. the treatment uses the body's immune system to attack the tumors. however, he suffered recent relapses. the "washington post" reports on conservative
billionaire charles koch meeting with his network of donors over his refusal to endorse donald trump. koch defended his decision, he wants to focus on senate races instead. but some want to concentrate on defeating hillary clinton. the group would feature clinton in senate campaign ads. and flying debris at a demolition derby in northern utah that hurt three people. two women and a little boy were injured saturday when part of a truck broke off and flew into the crowd. there is little or no protective netting to keep the spectators safe. officials will now determine whether extra safety measures are needed. donald trump faces new questions about his approach to american foreign policy. trump said if he were president, russian leader vladimir putin would not invade ukraine. >> he's not going into ukraine. just so you understand. he's not going to go into ukraine. you can mark it down.
you can put it down. >> he's already there, isn't he? >> he's there in a certain way. but i'm not there yet. obama is there. frankly, that whole part of the world is a mess under obama. with all the strength you're talking about and all the power of nato and ail of this. in the meantime, he takes crimea. >> hillary clinton's campaign said in a statement, quote, this is scary stuff, and yet more proof why donald trump is unfit and totally unqualified to be commander and chief. general michael hayden, good morning. >> good morning. >> do you agree with hillary clinton? >> well, it certainly was a fact-free description of what's going on in the ukraine. >> do you agree with what she said? totally unfit and unqualified to be commander in chief -- >> that would add to a wbody of evidence that would dra one towards that conclusion. there is a chance to recover. right now, that statement there again, devoid of facts and divorced from traditional
european policy. i mean, that was the violent change of a european border with the annexation of crimea which he says he might be fine with at some point in the future. beyond just what's happening in the ukraine, can you actually live with a europe in which you can change borders based upon popular sovereignty? how much more violent would the continent become? >> what do you make of the overall picture here? vladimir putin saying nice things about donald trump. donald trump saying nice things about vladimir putin. what's the big takeaway here? >> we have developed elements of strategy within the trump campaign. one of those elements is a far more cooperative relationship with the russian federation than we have had since the invasion of georgia in 2008. it also appears to be a fairly cost-free engagement for the russians with the americans
forgiving previous russian sins and allowing certain forms of russian behavior in return for russian cooperation on other joint problems. now, look, i like the part about the russian cooperation, but i do think actions have consequences. the occupation of crimea, the continued occupation of portions of the ukraine, the threat to the baltics, the unacceptable behavior, the cyber attacks which we're pretty certain that the russians are carrying out. you can't have this accommodation while that kind of behavior continues. >> three questions about the russian cyber attack. number one, are we convinced they did it? is everybody in the intelligence community convinced they did it? did they do it because they want to manipulate the election? three, how do we retaliate. >> i think they did it. you saw jim clapper cutely say only a limited number who could do this. i think the consensus is they
did do this. in the cyber domain, sometimes you can't get to that court of law beyond no reasonable doubt. i think the rab russians did it. the stealing of the data, that's generally accepted state espionage. stealing that stuff is what big nations, including our own do to other big nations. they did something else, though. they weaponized the information. they used the information to at a minimum play with our heads. i really don't think he's got the wisdom, the cleverness, to use the data to affect the outcome of the campaign. putin. i think he's just playing with our heads. he thinks we do this to him all the time. he thinks we did the orange revolution. he thinks we did the rose revolution. he's trying to give us a taste of our own medicine. with regard to retaliation, you don't need to pull the trigger,
so to speak, in the cyber domain. this becomes part of that broad package of russian behavior requiring a broader -- to my view, tougher american response. >> i'm sorry. >> okay. there are reports that there are going to be daily briefings for donald trump and hillary clinton, security briefings. what exactly does that mean and do you think this is a good idea for both candidates? >> it's a necessary idea. it's not quite what the constitution requires. it's not written down, but it is our protocol. you get the nomination of one or both of those parties, you are titled to some classified information. >> it was suggested that donald trump get fake briefings. >> yeah, you can't -- >> harry reid. >> the cities president has to treat both candidates perfectly equally. they're not going to get daily briefings. they're too busy. i suspect we may have a few. and it's just a few seminar-like discussions. this is going to look like one of those thinktank seminars on
steroids. this isn't going to be let me show you the covert actions. they're busy, all right? but even candidates less talkative than mr. trump are frightened about trying to sort out in their minds when they get the unexpected question from folks like yourself, did i learn that in the briefing or did i read that in the paper. and they want to keep those challenges to a minimum until election day. >> you have some intelligence officials who have suggested and been reported that they are concerned about donald trump having these briefings. you have paul ryan suggesting that he's concerned about hillary clinton having these briefings. what's your level of concern about each of them having these briefings? >> saying those things is unprecedented. this should be normal. this is just routine run of the american electoral process. you have candidates that have done and said things that make serious people question their
suitability, but they're going to get it. >> do you think they're going to tell these candidates everything they tell the president of the united states? >> the briefings between now and the election will be very vanilla. that will be classified light. somebody after the first tuesday, first monday is getting the president's daily brief. you take ohio, you take florida, you take pennsylvania, that's all you need to get the secrets. >> coming back to ukraine one more time. there was story that paul manafort had a relationship with a woman. but is there anything here we should look at? >> the circumstantial evidence really does suggest an interest plot line. but charlie, to my mind, that's all you have to date. that would be just one hypothesis. this could very well be the candidate's own view that he likes to side l up to the stuff
guy, the guy who makes decisions, and i can deal with the tough guy. now, that can be fed by the relationships that other members of his campaign team have had before. >> he said said maybe if russia can help defeat isis, why wouldn't that be a good idea to form a partnership with them. >> exactly right. that's the point. that's not just trump's campaign plan it's actually the current administration's plan at the moment. >> general, always good to have you here. >> from flooding to terrorism, the rush to keep the rio olympics from being a complete washout. and if you're heading out the door we hope you don't do it right now. you can watch us live on the app. we know you don't want to miss actor david oyelowo. he'll be in studio 57 to discuss. we'll be right back. ning the ov! yeah, i'm cleaning the gutters! washing the dog! washing the cat! well i'm learning snapchamp! chat. chat!

asked his wife if he wanted to speak. >> she said you know my condition. when i see my son's picture, i cannot hold myself together. for this candidate for presidency to not be aware of the respect of a gold star mother standing there and he had to take that shot at her, this is height of ignorance. >> during his convention speech, khan also said that trump had sacrificed nothing and no one. in response, donald trump said his sacrifices came in the form of jobs he created. >> an investigation into donald trump's hiring practices shows he recently filed visa applications to bring in foreign workers. he filed applications this month claiming he couldn't find enough americans to do that work and is seeking temporary visas to bring in 65 workers. trump responded in an interview taped friday, but aired sunday.

>> they are local mosquitos because there are no evidence at all that these individuals did not travel identify the continental united states. there's no evidence they've had any kind of contact with other people who have zika. the obvious conclusion of this that this is local spread through mosquitos which was not at all unexpected given the number of travel-related cases that we know are in the united states, many of which are concentrated in florida. >> do you expect to find additional local cases? >> i think there will be no doubt that we're going to see additional cases. this is something that was expected. it was predicted. the critical issue now is to prevent these locally acquired cases from becoming sustained and disseminated. there's a lot of activity going on locally by the local health authorities of very aggressive mosquito abatement control in order to prevent this spread beyond that area in the dade
county area. >> how do you do that? >> you can actually eliminate standing water which mosquitos very vigorously pro create there. they lay their eggs in water, get larvae and get adults. when i say standing water, even small little bottle caps. that's one way. the other way is by killing the larvae. spraying either with backpack type spraying or aerial spraying. they're putting a full court press on that right now. >> the white house asked for a big funding, $1.9 billion back in february. congress is now in recess. how big a problem is it that that money is not available to fight this disease? >> it fundamentally is a big problem to begin with. as we're getting now into august, the beginning of august, we have had -- i mean the cdc and nih and others, have had to borrow money from other areas of
things that we do to get our effort going. we are going to very soon relation out of money to do that. it really is unfortunate that that money has not been appropriated. >> should they come back early from break, as is being suggested? >> i don't know what the mechanism is, gayle, by something needs to be done. >>ty for joining us this morning. it could take months for a small maryland town to recover from devastating weekend flooding. surging water killed two people in ellicott city west of baltimore. many residents helped each other to survive. dramatic video shows people linking arms to save a woman from her car. other cars were swept away. >> pictures tell the story there. flash flooding destroyed several homes and businesses. cars ended up stacked on top of one another like toy cars. the governor declared a state of emergency for the county. flash flood watches this mork are posted in parts of

>> do you agree that everybody has to come up with something? >> at this point, everyone does need to have plan and be more proactive about it. but you also can't go too far. it's how people get news and information, have this robust back and forth conversation. how do you do that and not turn it into a safe bubble where you don't hear any news or opinions that you're not comfortable with. how do you make it robust -- >> without sanitizing it. >> that's right. without making it too scary for people and keeping people from feeling free to participate. >> is instagram now the preferred medium for celebrities? >> yeah. a lot of brands, a lot of celebrities. less news right now, especially because they moved to a format that's in a weighted feed where twitter is still very realtime. >> including donald trump. >> that's right, apparently. and he's making a lot of news on it. >> there's got to be some way to

between the trump movement and the wallace campaign. you go into detail in the book. >> one of the reasons i go for these stories, is to take a look at what's happening now and clues as to what might be happening next. wallace, nobody takes him seriously. lyndon johnson got him to run to take votes away from the republican. wallace runs on law and order. we're hearing that again. he gets a lot of support in the north. they studied at the time, the communities that liked wallace were the wins right next to the heavily african-american communities. a lot of people were worried. >> chicago as well as the north. >> right. exactly. and wallace also perfected the dog whistles of the kind we now hear about in politics. you're talking about one thing -- >> didn't nixon use that same theme in 2erterms of lay and or? >> he did, but he was chasing
wallace. the police chief in san francisco said all these candidates sound like they're running for sheriff because they were talking about law and order so much. talking about law and order which appealed to voters worried about the african-americans in the cities and also the riots having -- the marches having to do with the vietnam war and the general deisn't gration of the american culture. >> the name of the book is "whistlestop." there's a post to your book where you want to be on the couch and watch the sun come down. >> dedicated to ann, rice, and nan. >> i'm going to give it a kiss on camera. >> your mom would be so proud of you. >> great book. >> it goes on sale tomorrow. david oyelowo is joining us next. he's in studio 57 to explain why he's drawn to stories that don't

>> oh, she just didn't. >> look how that turned out. >> that wasn't my fault. >> no? >> no. >> i saw how she came back from here. that was you. >> boy, david oyelowo welcome back to the table. >> thank you. >> you're a producer on this movie, too? >> i am, i am. i really wanted to see this one made. >> because? >> i think -- well, it's a universal theme. we're ail whether we like it or not, are going to have to deal with bereavement at some point in our lives. it's something as a society we shy away from. when i read the script, its was a beautiful treatment of thing we all go through. >> was it a learning experience? >> it was a learning experience. what drew me to it was also the thing that made me scared of it. i'm married to a very wonderful lady myself. when you're an actor, you have to pit yourself in the position of what you're playing. the idea of having to entertain the loss of her was something i
didn't want to do. >> that scene was very powerful. i wondered if you were thinking about her at that moment and what that would do to you, when you get the news that she has died. >> if you're playing someone like dr. king, you're able to put yourself in their shoes and their experiences. something like this, you have to feel what it would be like for you. that's not a pleasant thing, but you have to go through, which is something i chose to subject myself to for the sake of the story. >> do you feel like you walked away with lessons about grief and bereavement? >> i walked away feeling very blessed that my wife is alive. that's not an easy thing for anyone who has suffered that to go through. what we try to do with the film between myself and diane who plays the mother of my wife in the film is to show how people can heal. >> and you wanted her for this role, as a producer. >> who wouldn't? two-time oscar winner. >> did you think you would get
her? >> no. no. but thankfully the strength of the script was enough. >> you've worked for four female directors. >> yeah, more actually. i actually had the opportunity to work with foyer female directors in a row. i have three films coming out. i did a film i've got coming out later this year called "a united kingdom". >> do women direct differently? >> i would say women do direct differently than men. one of the reasons "five nights in maine" has the emotional impact it has is due to the fact it was directed by a woman. films i've been in directed by women are, i've found that even "selma," she went for the familial side of things over
what a male director would gravitate towards. i think there needs to be a balance. that's why i'm a big champion for female directors. >> yoiu've spoken out about diversity in hollywood. have they gone far enough and what else needed to happen in order to solve that problem? >> i think in terms of the diversity and inclusion issue, we need to go past talking about it and actually just do it. i think the academy is doing that. for me, i actively look for projects that showcase people of color. that to me is doing it. to actively look for female directors as opposed to talking about it. i think if we ail decide to just do it, the change will come. >> you and your lovely wife became u.s. citizens two weeks ago. >> we did. >> so you'll be voting this year. >> i will be voting. that was a big reason to do it. also we've made a very real life here. we thought let's go all in.
you also can't play dr. martin luther king in a film about voting rights and not be able to vote. we felt we needed to do it. >> are you looking forward to voting this year? sg >> i am. >> what are your thoughts about -- we're kind of asking you to share. >> for me, it's a pivotal time in america's history. i think the decision made in november is going to have huge ramifications. rather than complain about it, you want to be part -- >> don't mean to cut you off. we got to go. "five nights in maine" opens in select cities
