confirming his nominee for attorney general senator jeff sessions who was said to replace sally yates. and it was her refusal that led mr. trump to fire her. >> we had a monday night massacre. >> reporter: during a late-night floor seat, senate minority leader chuck schumer framed the firing of acting attorney general sally yates of another sign of an impulse oive administration. >> we can not have a president say oh, this sound goods but not think the consequences through. >> reporter: the white house said yates had betrayed the department of justice by refusing to enforce his travel ban. yates said she was not convinced it was lawful. congress has still to approve trump's nominee attorney jeff sessions who is more likely to agree with the policy. ted cruz called on senate
democrats to confirm sessions immediately writing, yates to the list of obama-appointed brazen partisan interests officer fidelity to law. during her confirmation hearing in 2015, it was senator sessions who grilled yates on her ability to be impartial. >> so if you want to execute or unlawful, should be attorney general or deputy attorney general say no? >> senator, i believe that the attorney general or the deputy attorney general has an obligation to follow the law and the constitution. and to give their independent legal advice to the president. >> reporter: president trump tried to focus monday on cutting costly business regulations. but travel ban fallout followed him. >> i actually had a very good day yesterday in terms of homeland security. >> reporter: in a leaked memo, dozens of diplomats at the state department dissented yesterday. arguing that the ban, quote,
runs counter to core american values to nondiscrimination. and will not achieve its aim at making our country safer. white house press secretary sean spicer put them on notice. >> i think they ought to get with the program or they can go. >> and in the past 24 hours, american diplomats in qatar, sudan, the uae and indonesia have all sent cables seen by cbs news warning that jihadists will use this travel ban as a propaganda tool. >> all right, margaret. thank you so much. we'll likely see more protests against the travel and refugee bans. democratic lawmakers joined the demonstration on the supreme court steps last night. 33 senators co-sponsored a bill to remove the executive order. opponents filed at least two more lawsuits to block it. opponents of the ban also received a boost from former president obama. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the protests taking center stage. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, and democrats
took their message to the streets because it is clear that they're not going to get anywhere in the republican-controlled congress. even though about four dozen gop lawmakers have now expressed either their opposition to the ban or support. >> reporter: on the steps of the u.s. supreme court, thousands joined congressional democrats in a boisterous rally against the travel ban. >> do we let love despair or let love be beaten by hate? >> reporter: it came an hour after it was blocked by senate republicans. >> this is not a ban. it's a movement by seven countries. >> reporter: as more protests swept across the country, former president barack obama broke his silence. in a statement, his spokesman says, the president fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion. on monday, separate lawsuits were filed by the council for
american-islamic relations and the attorney general of washington state. >> president trump may have his alternative facts. but alternative facts do not work in a courtroom. >> reporter: two brothers from yemen who arrived saturday at dulles airport were plaintiffs in another lawsuit. the men were allegedly hand cuffed and forced to sign papers revoking their visas to visit their father, a u.s. citizen. they were then put on a flight to ethiopia. in south carolina, supporters rallied for an industrial engineer who was not allowed to return to her family. >> a princeton university graduate. she's paying taxes. and she has a visa that will allow her to work here. and i'll find a way to fix this problem. >> some republican opposition to this executive order has softened now that the white
house has made it clear that green card holders won't be kept out. but it is still so controversial here, gayle, that the congressional staffers, the white house said, helped to draft it are reluctant to acknowledge it publicly. >> all right, nancy, thank you. president trump plans to announce his nomination to the supreme court tonight in a prime time address in the white house. sources tell cbs news the president is now deciding between two federal appeals court jumps. they are neil gorsuch from colorado and thomas hardiman from pennsylvania. the supreme court first to identify the judges on the president's short list, jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, down to two judges whose background could not be any more different but they have one thing in mon, both are considered solid conservatives. >> i think you will be very impressed with this person. >> reporter: with president trump just hours away from announcing the supreme court
nominee. one is straight out of central casting with degrees from halve vast and oxford, established credibles, jump neil gorsuch had the philosophy modeled after the justice he replaced. >> people talk about the profession. i often have a difficult time understanding the analyses. not just with justice scalia. >> reporter: a conservative that sided with religious believerers. with the obamacare contraceptive mandates, he argues for the sanctity of life. >> our nominee today is thomas michael hardiman. >> reporter: also on the short list, judge thomas hardiman of pennsylvania, his nomination in the fall of 2006 to the federal appeals court was so controversial just one senator attended the hearing. >> our role as judges is to interpret the law. >> reporter: hardiman is considered a law and order judge and favors gun rights.
hardiman is blue collar. he's the first member of his family to graduate from college. notre dame with honors. he put himself through georgetown law driving a taxi. he would be the only justice outside of an ivy league. >> i think we should have people from other law schools. it's all harvard and yale. >> now, mr. trump said yesterday, he's already made up his mind, but whichever judge he's chosen, democrats are ready for a fight. they are vowing to block this nominee, just like republicans blocked president obama's nominee of merrick garland. charlie. >> "face the nation's" john dickerson is here. john, how is it with the development of the immigration ban even within the trump admnistration? >> well, dangerous and risky, i don't know. the danger would come from overseas. for example, john mccain said
that the ban was propaganda for isis. in margaret's report you have state department officials agreeing with that. so that's where the danger comes in. in the sense this steps up a religious fight between a christian united states and muslims. but in terms of internally inside of the administration, donald trump gets to fire his attorney general if the acting attorney general won't enact or carry out the laws. that's not -- that's significant, though, because even though it's within his rights to do that, it is a central question of the new actions he's taking. what is he owed because he's the president, and what do people who believe what he's doing goes against their values. >> but beyond the comparison total saturday night massacre in 1973 and the firing of the acting attorney general what we were talking about this morning, you have reports now that department of homeland security john kelly left out of the loop. general mattis incensed over
this. rex tillerson the incoming secretary of state was upset about this. the turmoil was inside his own cabinets. >> that's different. but you're right. what we have is a policy-making process in which chaos may be a perfectly fine by-product for an administration that has come in and wants to thoroughly disrupt things but the bottom line, people have to look over their shoulders. there are reports that work was done, republicans on the hill, without republican staffers telling their bosses. it's it creates a culture where everybody thinks they're going to be countermanned. or if you read in the papers, with various quotes from administration officials people have to worry about being thrown under the bus for unpopular opinions. so everybody is suspicious. and that makes it hard to get work done. >> and it looks
>> having improvisation may be a feature and not a bug. that's what we're learning about the trump administration. certainly, donald trump has thrived in chaos throughout his career. so thriving in chaos may not be something that he personally is that upset about. but it does create a nervousness and frustration in other parts of washington. >> what do you make of president obama speaking up? he had said before he would not speak up unless he thought core values were at stake and now ten days later he speaks. >> on a scale of 1 to 10, i talked to one is who said when asked how nervous are you about what the trump administration is doing, they said 12. but if the trump administration wants to make this a political fight not the question of values but left versus right, they're
happy to have the president in the fight. >> with the two nominations of the supreme court, will meet with satisfaction, not only among the present core supporters but also the republican party? >> absolutely. and that's why if you see any split between the president and republicans on this question of the travel ban, that would be back together by the fact that they would be supportive of his supreme court pick. >> thank you, john. for tonight, the president announces his choice for supreme court. it begins 8:00 eastern, 7:00 central here on cbs. we're learning more about the french-canadian university student accused of killing worshippers inside of a morph. canada's prime minister trudeau joins mourners.

bissonnette was a student. he appeared in court yesterday and was charged with six counts of first degree murder. >> charges that have been laid were those disclosed by the evidence so far. it's an ongoing investigation. >> reporter: law enforcement sources tell cbs news they believe bissonnette is a right wing extremist. on facebook, he liked the political organization generation nationale who rejects natural culturism. >> make no mistake, this was a terrorist attack. >> reporter: prime minister trudeau welcomes those. >> 36 million hearts are breaking with yours. know that we value you. >> reporter: one of the victims was 57-year-old story owner. >> he's a friend, we didn't
expect to have this come up. >> now, white house spokesman sean spicer told reporters yesterday that this attack was an example of why president trump is taking steps to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to national security. but, of course, norah, this attack was not from islamic terrorists from overseas. but from a homegrown suspect, police say, here in quebec. >> that is what has officials worried. homegrown, yes. anna werner, thank you in quebec city. >> the pentagon has identified the american commando. 36-year-old william "ryan" owens was a decorated member of the navy s.e.a.l.s. he was killed in a raid. three others were wounded. a fourth was injured when a supporting mission made a hard landing. the $72 million aircraft was intentionally destroyed because it couldn't fly. the pentagon estimated the raid

stones enroll right now. if you want health care, go out and buy it on the exchanges today. i talked to health insurance about this. they say this is how it works, even if the law is repealed they have essentially entered a contract with you when you sign up for a plan. you agree to pay this amount of money and they agree to provide this level of service. as long as you're paying for your policy through 2017, they will offer you that coverage. as it's laid out for you and agreed to when you sign up for coverage today. >> but if it's repealed this year, how long will it last? >> so, of course, yes, if you like your plan, you might not be able to keep it because we don't know what's going to happen. through 2017, you're okay but going into 2018, that's the question. and what republicans are talking about in congress right now, they haven't really reached agreement on whether they are going to replay the law and repeal it at the same time. what they're going to replace it with. come 2018, then it's up in the
air about what you'll replace it with. >> republicans are saying they're waiting for tom price to be confirmed so he can come over and shape this legislation. is that the missing ingredient from the replacement standpoint? >> so, republicans had a big gathering last week in philadelphia where they were hoping to get more clarity on what the plan was going to look like. once they get tom price in there they'll have an advocate in hhs but but they still got to get something past congress and signed by the president. there's still a lot of divided factions within the republican party about what this plan should include. and there's a sense they're probably going to need some democratic help for the plan. there's still question how do they get democrats on boards while meeting all of the things that republicans want to see in the new replacement plan. >> is there some sense there's some good things here they ought to protect? >> well, one is expanded
coverage. we have a lot more people with health insurance than we can several years ago. that's one thing everyone would leicht to protect, is the level of coverage. republicans definitely don't want to be the ones blamed for millions losing their health insurance in 2018 if they can't come up with a plan. >> it's interesting to note that the approval rate for the obamacare plan is higher than it's ever been. more people have signed up for it this year than last year. what impact will that have on congress that wants to start from scratch? >> yeah, well, it just means that there's more people that they're going to have to find a solution for that they're going to have to cover. and it also shows there's more people benefitting from this law. we've already seen a ground swell. not from the level before obamacare was passed but a ground swell, hundreds showing up at town hall meetings to make sure it's protected. shannon pettypiece, thank you.

chaos is not something that he's upset about but it does create a nervousness and frustration. >> u.s. authorities did not have bissonnette on their radar. police here have not yet identified a motive. the nfl has reportedly asked mr. bush to make the ceremonial coin toss. >> barbara was saying come on, we've got to get out of here for the super bowl. the judges two backgrounds that co-not be any more different. they have one thing in common, both are conservatives. announcing it at 8:00 p.m. live from the white house it will be the most exciting supreme court announcement since the justice burst through a banner at the super bowl halftime show. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. president donald trump has fired the acting attorney general who refused to defend his executive
order on immigration. sally yates from the obama administration, she said she was not convinced that the president's order was lawful. in a statement, the white house said, quote, yates betrayed the department of justice. >> dana boente was sworn in last night. he will enforce the president's order. yates was only going to stay with the new administration until the president's nominee for the attorney general senator jeff sessions is confirmed. white house press secretary sean spicer said yesterday that the travel ban was not issued because of any specific threats. >> getting ahead of threats is the key. not waiting until they happen. not saying, hey, once it happens, how do we react so it doesn't happen again. i think what i want to be clear about, is that since becoming president he's continued to take steps with executive order and otherwise, to make sure that this country is as safe as it can be and we're ahead of any
threats. american diplomats in qatar, sudan and uea and indonesia have sent statements warning that jihadists will use this as a propaganda tool. no one from sudan has carried out a deadly attack in the united states since 2001. countries that have are saudi arabia that are not on the list. most of the 9/11 hijackers came from that country. senate republicans are blocking an effort by democrats to overturn the president's order. dianne feinstein introduced the bill co-sponsored by over 30 democrats. one of them is amy klobuchar. she's is with us this morning. good morning. >> the president's pick tour attorney general jeff sessions will that be complicated by this
news? >> i think it will be. this is something where you have, the acting attorney general has now been fired. senator sessions, i don't believe, was involved in this executive order. but he's been nominated to take over a justice department, where you want to make sure that politics are not involved. and you have an order that has affected hundreds of thousands of people, all over the world. law abiding people, people that followed the rules by no review by the agencies involved, law enforcement that enforced the law. and i think you see chaos across the country because of this. so, of course, that is going to be one of the major topics discussed as the senators announce their votes. i think there will be very thorough discussion. because of that factor as well as senator sessions has opposition to the voting rights, reauthorizations and other issues. >> senator, i know you've got a number of democrats on board to try to overturn the ban. but there are also republican
senators on record, why haven't they signed on to co-sponsor this bill? >> well, let's give this time. when you hear people like john mccain who was held prisoner for five years serving our country saying this was actually a self-inflicted wound on the war against terror. lindsey graham joining in on that. rob cortland saying that the vettivet ing rule wasn't conducted. and you have people saying my kid is on a student visa in canada can't come back. >> is this is a in which two people did what they should do, sally yates should have said i can't enforce the law, i view it as unconstitutional. and the president should have said without having an attorney
general who doesn't follow. >> well, there's two things, first of all if she would have been consulted in the first place, secondly, when he did fire her, he vilifies her. this is a pattern that we're seeing saying that a woman who has served our country in nonpartisan roles has betrayed the justice department. those are the words they use. i know sally yates. i worked with her. she's someone who prosecuted the bomber. she went to school in georgia. went to lawsuit down there. with the u.s. attorney, and she herself is not an activist. she is a lawyer and a prosecutor. and she came to the decision that this could well be unlawful. but more than that it's a disruption that it causes, something that she didn't believe could be an order she could enforce. >> you're a former prosecutor as well. do you think that this order is
unconstitutional? >> i would want to defer to the courts here, but i think there are some major problems, as you see from the initial ruling from the judge in new york. who said that this -- that the people who have simply come in, following the rules, including iraqi who had helped our own army should not be detained. should not be held. so i think that there are some constitutional issues. but beyond that, you have the fact that this was implemented in a way that just caused chaos. and governing is different than campaigning. in campaigning, you can make pronouncements and send out tweets but this is actual governing. and it means working with law enforcement of and citizens and businesses to do the right thing. >> there will be a nominee from the president tonight. do you expect a rough fight over confirmation for the next supreme court justice? >> this is a solemn obligation of the u.s. senate by consent for the president's nominee for
the supreme court. and the decisions that the court makes affect people in their daily lives. we don't know who he is going to nominate for the job. but i can tell you as a member of the judiciary committee that we'll be thoroughly vetting this person. at a hearing there's going to be questions about their views, issues, and precedent and their respect for precedent. sky think it will be with any nominee a very thorough investigation. and let's add to that, it's a 60-vote session, charlie. it's not 51 like the other nominees that are before us now. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> cbs news will air a special report tonight when president trump announces his supreme court pick. you can watch at 8:00 eastern, 7:00 central right here on cbs. as people around the country talk about the travel ban, the controversy is looming over the super bowl. tom brady and the new england patriots arrived yesterday in houston. and they are ready to face the atlanta falcons sunday in super

to eat? >> timing is everything. it's important when you fall in love and get your first job. >> wait, wait when you fall in love, when's your best time? >> so, we're learning that it's important when it comes to eating. that a calorie in the morning may not be the same as a calorie as in the evening. eat like a king in the morning, a prince at noon and a peasant at night. it makes sense. >> why? >> well, we're learning because of the body's internal clock. the clock dictated by light and dark. that controls our cycles and our body temperature. what's more fascinating each of our individual tissues and organs have their own clock. and those are turned on or off by feeding or fasting. and these genes essentially control how we process blood sugar. so what we've been doing for the last years in terms of snacking and eating throughout the day is causing our clock to become
dissynchronized. >> i read it's better to eat small meals throughout the day. this study says, no, not so. >> well, this study says there's not enough evidence to point one way or the other. this idea of grazing. it may be for blood pressure and others but weight, the science is not there to tell us about that. intermittent fasting was actually shown to reduce blood pressure and potentially short-term weight gain. >> meaning one day a week -- >> meaning alternate days or a couple days a week. short term. >> eating nothing, just water? >> eating nothing, yes. >> limiting your calories. >> yes. >> we know people who have done that. >> don't like that. >> what's the link between a big breakfast and a healthy heart? >> right. we've been telling our kids to eat breakfast. >> when we were talking in the
green room today, norah said we heard that since high school. but my mom was telling me that for years. >> 20% to 30% of americans skip breakfast. this looked at breakfast eaters versus the breck fast skippers. the eaters had better weight and decreased cardiovascular problems. eating breakfast sets a healthy pattern for rest of the day. you get nutrients and minerals like fiber and calcium that you need at that meal. also you need to spread out how your body processes blood sugar. you sort of help the ince ssuli work better. >> in terms of how you eat, i eat as much sugar as i want to but i eat it in the morning. >> no, we need to attract this
mindfulness and be intentional. that we pay attention to what we're eatinging. that we sit down for our meals. that we don't multitask unless you're watching "cbs this morning." >> and moderation in everything is a very good thing? >> yes. >> is that what you said? >> you learned that right? >> if you don't believe it -- >> moderation on everything? >> no -- >> oh, boy. >> that's a dangerous territory. >> hold on! doctor, don't leave the table. residents said they enjoyed million dollar views. and california apartment residents could not wait any longer. we'll explain, you're watching "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs "morning rounds" sponsored by eamericaen-c. emerge and see. plus more vitamin c than 10 oranges.

i think recently with the immigration reform, they're also trying to put a bit of distance, because it's wildly unpopular in california among their employees. >> with tim cook, i know he's speaking out. what impact can they can because they represent so much of the economy of the united states? >> well, it depends on if the administration is listening or even cares what the tech world says. clearly, the tech companies have played a role in changing the tide of public opinion. >> they're having issues right now, some people say, look, travis saw a business opportunity and took it. what is wrong with that? >> well, it's complicated. there's not, frankly, a lot of rationality behind the uber campaign. it partly has to do with the fact that he's on this business council and people just don't like it. and partly over the year, people didn't find a lot of reasons to love uber's package, and that is now coming back. >> and it hasn't been all
success. he did not win that china? >> well, he told his business to a local competitor and he got a 17% stake, so he did okay but he's just not the global network that he hoped for. >> it's very open. charlie, the host is a great guy. >> i used it for the first time. i had a great experience. >> the upstarts is available now. a skier's flip took him to new flights. how people
