7:03 am
welcome back to "cbs this morning." charlie and norah are both off but we are in good hands. anthony mason, can we call you mush bucka? >> and margaret brennan is here with us. glad to have you both here. run of four american swimmers accused of lying in rio de janeiro will have to pay up so he can leave the country. investigators say this surveillance video shows the men vajtsized a gas station and then made up a story to cover up their actions. two of the swimmers were allowed to fly out last night and have reportedly arrived in miami this morning. ryan lochte, who claimed they were held at gunpoint returned to the u.s. on tuesday. >> the head of the u.s. committee apologized saying the behavior of these athletes is not acceptable. we will further review the matter and any continuation consequences for the athletes when we return to the united states. ben tracy is at the scene in rio
7:04 am
with the potential fallout in and out of the pool. ben, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning from the most talked about gas station in the world. this is where ryan lochte said he and his fellow swimmers were robbed at gun point but also where the brazilian police show the men showed up drunk and acted like jerks and vandalized the bathroom back there. several security cameras captured what happened early sunday morning. lochte and his teammates disappear down this walkway leading to the bathrooms and then sear lingering behind a wall and pulling down what appears to be a poster and when they attempted to leave, security guards blocked their taxi. police say the swimmers were drunk and belligerent and vandalized this bathroom and left $50 to pay for the damage. >> stupid is the operative word. >> reporter: "usa today" sports columnist said lochte's subsequent actions only made things worse. >> you pay the damages and apologize for being the ugly
7:05 am
damages. >> reporter: lochte claim they were returning from a night of partying when they were robbed at gunpoint. >> he cocked and put it to my forehead. >> reporter: police say gas stuart guards were armed but called their actions appropriate. they can be seen escorting the swimmers from their cab and ordering them to sit on the ground. one of the americans has his hands up. >> lochte is coming back here. >> reporter: lochte, a six-time olympic gold medalist apparently returned to north carolina before rio police could requestion him. >> i would suspect there would be some kind of suspension involved. >> reporter: mark schubert was lochte's olympic team coach in 2008. >> united states swimming will take a tough stance because it's certainly embarrassing to the sport of swimming. >> reporter: on sunday after speaking with police a second day, conger and bentz fly back to the united states and feigen
7:06 am
revised his story. three sponsors said they are monitoring the investigation but did not say they were dropping lochte. >> there is short shelf life for olympic swimmers in particular because your careers are so sure. as marketers would say, he just fell off that shelf. >> reporter: ryan lochte's attorneys issued a statement last night and it says in part a gun was pointed at the swimmers and they were forced to get out of their cab and give up their money. no matter what happened at the gas station the swimmers were robbed by people with a gun appearing to be law enforcement. jimmy feigen is the only u.s. olympic swimmer left here in rio and his attorney says he'll pay a $10,000 fine that will likely go to charity and leave the country today. donald trump now says that some of his campaign rhetoric was a mistake. his statement to supporters last night was also a message to voters who were offended or hurt and it may indicate a change in
7:07 am
approach. after bringing on a new campaign manager and ceo. dean reynolds is in charlotte where he covered that trump rally. dean, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, there was an unquestionably softer tone to donald trump's remarks here in charlotte last night. there were kind words for the victims of the louisiana floods who he'll be visiting later on today. there was a promise never to lie to voters, and there was one more element to his remarks. it was almost startling. an expression of regret. >> in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words, or you say the wrong thing. i have done that. >> reporter: that statement maybe as close as donald trump has come to an apology. >> and i do regret it,
7:08 am
particularly where it may have caused personal pain. >> reporter: a sharp contrast to earlier trump assertions ridiculing the religious faith of gold star parents who had criticized him. >> no, i don't regret anything. >> reporter: or after minimizing the heroism of p.o.w. john mccain. the new tone may reflect the shake-up in the trump campaign. reading from a teleprompter to depart from verbal digression, truth styled himself as a truth teller as opposed to someone else. >> has hillary ever apologized for lying about her illegally mail server and deleting 33,000 e-mails? has she apologized for lying to the families who lost loved ones at benghazi? >> reporter: striking a notably more inclusive tone, trump made a direct appeal to
7:09 am
african-americans, who have long favored the democratic party. >> look how bad things are going under decades of democratic leadership. what do you have to lose by trying something new? i will fix it. watch. i will fix it. >> reporter: now, the clinton campaign was quick to dismiss the softer trump tone and his regrets. quote, until he tells us which of as many offensive bullying and divisive comments he regrets. anthony? >> dean, thanks. big changes would come to the clinton foundation if hillary clinton wins the white house. former president bill clinton told staff members yesterday that he would resign from the board if she is elected and the foundation would no longer accept foreign or corporate donations. they make up more than half of the top 24 contributors.
7:10 am
the 42nd president claims the decision is not due to outside pressure but questions over possible conflict of interest continue to follow the campaign. the clinton global initiative holds its final meeting next month and an arm of the foundation with many corporate sponsors. "face the nation" moderator and cbs news political director, that is john dickerson, he joins us from chicago. john, good morning. let's start with donald trump. definitely a change in tone. is it a change in strategy too, do you think? and is this part of the kellyanne conway effect? >> it's certainly a change in tone. a very noticeable one and change in strategy. like his other changes in tone and strategy in the campaign, the real question is how long will it last? >> and how much time do you think he has to turn things around, john, given the high negatives he now has, particular among women? >> the central question whether this is a change and whether it sustains long enough the people
7:11 am
who have doubts about donald trump and his judgment and temperament in office, which is, right now, the thing that is controlling the movement in the polls. hillary clinton has lots of weaknesses. but right now, voters are more worried about donald trump and his temperament and this change in tone is, obviously, an attempt to try to fix that, to suggest that the inner trump is something different than what people have come to believe about it. does he have enough time? the clock is ticking. early voting starts at the end of september and those doubts are set. it's always hard to undo doubts once they have been set in voters' minds. >> donald trump knows reality tv but his campaign has first campaign ad and faced on immigration and crossing of the border. is this something he really need and what do you think of the ad, itself? >> the ad is a wolf at the door and dark and dangerous world and hillary clinton will make it more so and donald trump will protect people. that message is really aimed towards his core base, the
7:12 am
people who love donald trump and see the world as he does. his challenge really is to expand his base, to reach into different groups of voters, even traditional groups of republican voters that he's been losing. does that message get across? i'm not sure. i think it's bigger hurdle is temperament and judgment question which can't be fixed with an ad. >> it also appears he is trying to look presidential with this visit to baton rouge to tour the louisiana flood zone, something that president obama has been criticized for not doing since he is still on vacation. i mean, does that contrast do anything for him? >> to the extent he has to overcome this can he inhabit the presidency and can people see him, the reality show person in the actual job of the presidency? to the extent his trip mimics that presidents do visit ravaged areas and he exhibits that role individually that goes to some
7:13 am
way to answer those questions but he has to do do that over a sustained period of time to try to help with those doubts that voters have. >> before you go, john, any idea on exactly what he regrets? because he didn't spell that out. >> no. i think he is not going to play that game, because that becomes a relitigation of all the things that he might regret and then exactly what did he regret about those things? it was a very vague statement. politicians try to get the benefit of having saying they regret things but don't want to get into the nitty-gritty of it and i doubt that he he wants to either. >> john dickerson, thank you. see you on sunday morning on "face the nation." i watch the show. >> you'll be sleeping a little late, is that it? >> no, i will be watching "face the nation." john will be talking to republican senator jeff sessions from alabama plus the authors of a new book called "trump revealed with michael kranish
7:14 am
and marc fisher and they will also join us on sunday on cbs. donald trump plans to visit the area devastated by historic flooding in louisiana. more than 86,000 people have registered with fema and 20 parishes declared disaster areas and more 4,000 people are staying in shelters. president obama is faced with criticism for not cutting short his vacation from martha's vineyard to visit the disaster zone. manuel bojorquez is in louisiana. >> reporter: despite calls for president obama to come here to louisiana to this area and survey the damage for himself, he is unlikely to cut short his new england vacation to see all these floodwaters affecting communities like this one. he is getting some support in that regard from the governor of louisiana, as people here work to rebuild. >> we washed the floors and bleached the house. >> reporter: family and
7:15 am
neighbors have been helping janice harold clean up. her home was filled with flood water just days ago. harold is an insurance agent so she had coverage for her house and belongings but said she could still use help from the government. >> i haven't seen anybody. >> the federal government is here. we have been here. we will be here as long as it takes. >> reporter: homeland security secretary jeh johnson toured the area on thursday and said fema is working to help those in need and he also addressed questions about president obama's absence. >> so the president is closely monitoring the situation through his cabinet, through his fema administrator and is very much on top of it. >> reporter: on wednesday, a baton rouge newspaper published an editorial calling for the president to cut his vacation short, saying it's time for president barack obama to visit the most anguished state in the union. the paper reminded reared of the criticism former president
7:16 am
george w. bush faced in 2005 when he flew over the aftermath of katrina but did not visit the region. bush toured the region two days later. >> i am not complaining in any way about our federal partnership. >> reporter: governor john bel edwards says he has been in constant touch with white house official and adding a presidential visit would require pulling police and first responders from recovery efforts to provide security. >> i would just as soon he give us another week or two and then he can visit. >> reporter: fema administrator craig fugate visited louisiana on tuesday. they will send teams in shelters and communities like this one to assess the needs of flood victims and implement a long-term plan. gayle? >> thank you. some victims of the devastating bluecut wildfire in southern california are getting their first look at the widespread damage there. the fire in san bernardino county is entering into its fourth day. it has burned nearly 36,000 acres and is now 22% contained.
7:17 am
carter evans is in phelan as the flames still threaten more than 42,000 buildings. carter, good morning. >> reporter: this is one of the many homes devastated in the fire and the firefighters haven't been able to get a full tally yet but some owners have returned to find their property reduced to ashes. another night of worry for people living near the hugely destructive blue cut fire which continues to grow, despite improved weather conditions in the efforts of nearly 1,600 firefighters and workers. right now it seems like you guys got a pretty good handle on this, but the wind contains. >> in a very moment's notice. i've seen erratic fire behavior but the fire we saw on day one when we first arrived here was nothing less than amazing. >> reporter: and scary, too? >> yeah. it was quite scary. >> reporter: for many living here, their greatest fears were realized as they realized their homes and businesses were caught in the fire's path including a

killed at least 13 people. trump surprised people with a change of tone last night in charlotte, where he talked about mistakes on the campaign trail. >> sometimes, in the heat of debate, and speaking on rah multitude of issues, you don't choose the right words, or you say the wrong thing. i have done that. and, believe it or not, i regret it. and i do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. >> trump did not give specifics, but it's a change from other statements saying that he has no regrets. >> the clinton campaign has responded with this. we learned tonight that donald trump's speechwriter and teleprompter knows he has much
8:04 am
for which he should apologize, but that apology is simply a well-written phrase until he tells us which of his many offenses, bullying and divisive comments he regrets and changes his tune altogether. for the past eight years, "the washington post" fact checker column has rated the truth of campaign rhetoric and it uses pinocchios to measure falsehoods and some change of the facts get you one pinocchio and the whoppers get four. both donald trump and bill clinton earned pinocchios this week. >> to defeat crime and defeat radical islam in our country and make trade, you need physical strength and stamina. hillary clinton doesn't have that strength or stamina. believe me. and you know it and they know it and everybody knows it. >> first of all, the fbi director said, when he testified before congress, he had to amend
8:05 am
his previous day's statement that she had never received any e-mails marked classified. they saw two little notes with a "c" on it. this is the biggest load of -- i've ever heard that it was about telephone calls she needed to make and the state department puts a little "c" on it to discourage people from discussing it in the public and the secretary of state or whoever it is doesn't make a telephone call. does that sound threatening to the national security? >> kent kessler runs the "the washington post" fast check department. have you a l you have a lot to keep up with this campaign. let's start with trump's stamina, it was an innuendo there rather than a direct charge. you looked into this and what did you find? >> what we found is, you know, trump is referring to a variety of things that have appeared on right leaning websites or
8:06 am
conservative news, tv shows, that sort of thing, that look at supposed heal of hillary clinton and none of those things stood up with hillary clinton that she was wearing a defibrillator or had a brain freeze. we went to each of those pieces of innuendo and determined they were based on nothing and given trump four pinocchios because she never has said anything that she lacked physical stamina. the burden of proof is on the speaker. if you can't provide evidence, you get a pinocchio. >> reporter: let's go to bill clinton. your team has done a fact checks related to hillary clinton and you gave bill clinton three pinocchios for the comments he made. why does that stand out to you? >> what is happening there is the clinton campaign is often focused on very technical things. you heard him talk about the little "c's" and i view that as
8:07 am
kind of a political equivalent of three card monte where you distract people from what core is the problem, which is the problem. she had a private e-mail server, which she shouldn't have had, and even if things are not marked classified, the fbi found out there were classified discussions going on. it doesn't have to be marked classified. so they are trying to distract you with the minutia and take away from the big picture. >> the state department said, yesterday, for the first time, that that payment of $400 million cash and the release of four american pretty muchers from iran, are, in fact, linked and something they denied up to this point. donald trump bit on that and linked hillary clinton to it. any truth to that linkage? >> well, i covered the state department for nine years. and this is an interesting example of how -- is this worthy of pinocchios? but you can't fact-check opinion. from a diplomatic standpoint,
8:08 am
you often use leverage to accomplish your goals. and you can make a case that this was leveraged. there were two separate diplomatic tracks that came together at the same time. on the other hand, you can say, come on. we are giving them money even if it's money that was owed to them? giving it to them virtually as the same moment the plane is taking off? >> that is on the ransom. but this is to hillary clinton and not john kerry? >> hillary clinton had nothing to do with this transaction. if you're blaming hillary clinton, that might be worthy of a pinocchio. >> do they complain when you give them pinocchios? >> sometimes they plea bargain. >> how does that work? >> they say this isn't really a three. it's more like a two! >> how does this campaign season stand up to other campaigns in terms of the pinocchios that you've handed out? >> the big difference this time is donald trump. there has never been a candidate i've covered like donald trump, because most campaigns, you
8:09 am
know, if you give them four pinocchios, they will say, that's not good and they will drop the -- >> i'm going to correct it. >> might address the language. and, also, they engage with the fact-checkers to make their case. the trump campaign almost never responds to fact-checking inquiries. donald trump will repeatedly say things over and over again that have been demonstrated as false such as saying he was against the war in iraq when he clearly was in favor of the war in iraq, so that is really different. the result he has 65% of his ratings are four pinocchios which is off the charts. you know, a typical politician is 15% to 20%. >> glenn kessler, thank you. >> she may stand 4'8" but gymnast simone biles towered over hur field in her record breaking performance i
