7:03 am
please, let me know where there's a service that models you a supermodel, championship ring, and $24 million a year. and welcome to the weekend. welcome to cbs this morning, saturday, i'm anthony mason along with alex wagner. the spring-like weather that a large part of the nation enjoyed just a few days ago, well, it's a distant memory. from nenld and the mid-atlantic states. many people are getting hit with an arctic blast. temperatures are not expected to make it out of the teens in some places. windchills well below zero. the big drop in temperature quickly froze what was left of a friday snowstorm here in new york. the city got about three inches, leaving kony island covered in snow rather than sand. at boston's logan international airport, the battle against the elements took a dangerous turn.
7:04 am
an airplane employee was deicing an alaska airlines plane when the ring of the 737 clipped the bucket the man was working in and knocked him out. passengers describe what happened next. >> and the hose got wrapped up in his legs and pulled him off the chair. >> it was a dude in the basket there, you know, he was dangling. >> a ten-year-old boy watching through his window was apparently the first to call for help. man is recovering this morning. >> that flight was one of dozens cancelled yesterday with hundreds of travelers in the northeast grounded because of the conditions. it's just a preview of what's in store in the next few days. meteorologist ed curran from our chicago station wbb mtv has more, ed, good morning. >> good morning, some very active weather through the next few days. let's start with today. we see snow on the radar. the jet stream running to the south and that brings snow into some areas to the south. north carolina, south carolina
7:05 am
seeing snow as we head into tonight and tomorrow morning. in fact, a winter storm warning up in parts of that area until sunday at 11:00 in the morning. then, up to the north here, winter storm watch, parts of minnesota and into ohio and wisconsin. winter storm watch from sunday afternoon into monday evening. snow comes in there, moves through the chicago area. continues to the east. merges with another system and as this develops could create a nor'easter with some disruptive snowfall for the northeast as we head into tuesday with some people seeing a foot of snow or more? that is a possibility. cold, as you talked about everywhere we look here with the jet diving to the south. new york, 31 degrees for a high today. your normal high this time of year, alex, is 48 degrees. >> oh, don't i know that. meteorologist ed curran of our chicago station wbbm tv, thanks ed. now to the fight over health care. in his latest address, president trump tried to rally support for
7:06 am
the house too. he planned to repeal and replace obamacare. the bill cleared two congressional committees this week. >> but the battle has just begun with conservative republicans wanting tougher, more sweeping changes in insurance requirements and medicaid. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, the president used the bully bull pit this week to promote the first major piece of legislation of his administration. reforming obamacare. this while his administration is still trying to field lingering questions about links between trump's associates and foreign entities. >> i want every american to know that action on obamacare is an urgent necessity. >> reporter: in his weekly address, president trump pressed congress to semihis new health care plan, repealing and replacing obamacare. >> we have some great results. we have tremendous spirit. and i think it's something that's just going to happen very
7:07 am
shortly. >> reporter: the president met with key republican house committee members at the white house friday. capping a week of full court press from the administration and gop leadership. >> i think we can all agree that obamacare has failed. >> reporter: vice president mike pence, health and human services secretary tom price, and house speaker paul ryan all made public pitches for the plan. in an effort to win over reluctant republicans. >> this is the closest we will ever get to repealing and replacing obamacare. >> reporter: meanwhile, democrats tried to shift the focus to questions surrounding investigations into the trump campaign and russia. fbi director james comey briefed the gang of eight on president trump's claim that president obama wiretapped his phones during the campaign. house minority leader nancy pelosi said she wants comey to share what he knows with the public. >> he should set the record straight. yes, i do think he should say that. publicly. >> reporter: on friday, the white house said president trump did not know until this week that former national security
7:08 am
advisor, michael flynn, had acted as foreign agent, representing turkey. white house press secretary sean spicer tried to down play the matter, saying the government does not advise employees on personal matters. >> i think we trust people to fill out the appropriate forms that they need to. >> reporter: now the flynn episode and still unsubstantiated claim that president obama bugged trump tower have damaged the president's credibility. this weekend, he is laying low while vice president pence will rally in kentucky to boost support for the president's health care plan. alex. >> thanks. almost four dozen obama administration federal prosecutors who stayed on after the presidential election have been asked to leave immediately. attorney general jeff sessions is seeking the resignations of the remaining 46 holdover u.s. attorneys. it has been customary for prosecutors to leave their positions when a new president takes office. many federal prosecutors
7:09 am
nominated by president obama have already left. let's talk politics. and for that, we turn to cbs news contributor and "new york times" magazine chief national correspondent mark good morning. let's talk about the the request for the resignation of the federal prosecutors, how unusual is this move? >> well, the move itself is not unusual. i mean, it is fairly customary for administrations, especially when there's a new president to come in and actually ask for the resignations of all the u.s. attorneys. usually though it happens in much more orderly process. staggered over several months and there were mixed messages about how this would go on and what would happen with continuing investigations. then suddenly to the surprise of everyone that really has been paying attention, we have this sort of sweeping order to have the resignations come in for all u.s. attorneys. it creates confusion, questions about what the ongoing
7:10 am
investigations are, and so, i mean, i think people were taken aback by the suddenness of it. >> adding to a bit of this chaos, mark, let's talk about health care. the president thus far adopted sort of a good cop posture which is inacceptability vising members through white house dinners, bowling dates, et cetera, to get on board with this health care plan. how long is it before we see the president take a more punitive stance, if you will, as far as reluctant members who don't want to sign on to this though? >> well i think again, you don't really know what tools are in his tool box, as far as, you know, what kind of power he has to sort of enact some kind of punishment. whether it's threatening to campaign against members or to actually not invite them to the white house and so forth. donald trump is a salesman. there's no question about it. he can put a very, very happy and excited and optimistic face on something like this, but he also has never been known as a wonk. he's not going to dive into the
7:11 am
details of this. at some point the details of medicaid expansion, things like that effect people's lives in the states people are operating in is not going to be made up for by, you know, a bowling date in the white house. so it's, again, we'll sort of see how this evolves. >> on march 20th, mark, the house intelligence panel is set to hold it's first public hearing on russian meddling and the 2016 election. james comey, the fbi director, has been invited to testify, what can we expect in this hearing, do you think? >> i mean, the hearing, i mean, as far as comey's role in this keeps getting more and more interesting. obviously he was a central figure in the election. many people in the clinton campaign, you know, if not blame him for the defeat, certainly thinks that his decision to come public with a few days left before the election on hillary clinton being the reopening of the investigation is deciding factor. i mean, he is -- he obviously right now is a bit of a --
7:12 am
trying to be an honest broker. he has big allegations. i mean testimony in a case like this is very dicey because you have classified material, you have the justice department which is new and which they haven't worked in before, and an administration that they could be fighting against. so i guess that's part of the many questions that we'll be answering when that thing comes to light. >> mark, what does congress do about the president's allegations last weekend that president obama wiretapped the offices of trump tower? does the white house want this to go away or does this have legs? are we going to see more on this in the coming weeks? >> i think the democrats would like to keep this in the news. it was a baffling -- one week ago today. that's the thing about this administration, feels like it was three months ago, but only one week ago. it does seem like if not they have not backed off a little bit, they certainly have maybe walked this back a little bit. prumpl has not talked very much about it since then. and it's uncomfortable position because i mean, apparently the
7:13 am
fbi and james comey specifically has said there's nothing to this and he supposedly asked the justice department to sort of refute what the white house says which creates an awkward situation. i do think that the put up and shut up moment could be embarrassing for the white house. i think that's why democrats have pressed the issue. >> in washington, thank you very much for being us with. >> thanks, anthony. tomorrow morning on "face the nation" here on cbs, john dickerson's guest will feature paul ryan, senator rand paul, republican of kentucky, and vermont senator, bernie sanders. the u.s. economy posted solid job gains in the first full month of donald trump's presidency. the labor department said on friday, 235,000 jobs were added in february. that was enough to send the unemployment rate down by one tenth of a point to 4.7%. during the presidential campaign, president trump cast doubt calling the jobs data a >> don't believe those phony
7:14 am
numbers when you hear 4.9 and 5% unemployment. the numbers probably 28, 29, as high as 35 -- in fact, i even heard recently, 42%. >> kept going up that number. on friday, white house press secretary sean spicer said the president's view on the job's number have changed. >> i talked to the president prior to this, and he said to quote him very clearly, they may have been phony in the past, but it's very real now. >> they like them when the numbers make him look good. the unemployment report gave wall street a report, all made gains to end the week. positive jocks data supports expectations. the economy is strong enough for the federal reserve to raise key interest rates after it's meeting next week. mississippi woman facing deportation after a protest over president trump's policies has been freed. daniellela vargas spoke out
7:15 am
about mr. trump's deportations policies and was arrested. she was released on friday from a detention center in louisiana. her parents brought vargas to the country when she was seven years old under a visa waiver program that allows immigrants to enter the u.s. without a visa for 90 days, but it denies them a hearing in front of the judge if they oversfap. the criminal investigation into the online posting of nude photos of female service members is spreading beyond the marines. to all branches of the military. the pictures were posted without permission, and in a remarkable news conference, the top marine corps general says she will hold those accountable. here's david martin. >> reporter: the come don of the marine corps cancelled an overseas trip to deal with the photo scandal which he called a threat to the service. >> these allegations themselves, they undermine everything we stand for at the marine corps. and as marines.
7:16 am
discipline, honor, professionalism, and respect and trust amongst each other. >> reporter: general robert neler said so far fewer than ten women have identified themselves as victims of the photo sharing. and he pleaded for more to come forward. >> i know it's a stretch for me to ask them at this time, but i want to believe that they believe that we're going to do all we can to get to the bottom of this, and i need their help. >> reporter: another is thomas brennan, former marine turned journalist who exposed marines united and is now the subject of death threats as well as a $500 reward for nude pictures of his wife. >> he's been threatened, which i find as disgusting and as sick as some of this other stuff. >> reporter: although marines united has been shut down, other sites like marines united 2.0 keep popping up. vowing to continue the photo sharing. >> we've been fighting for 15 years. you know, men and women, side by
7:17 am
side. so what do you got to do to get in? what do you got to do to get in? i mean, come on, guys. >> reporter: david martin, cbs news, the pentagon. iraqi troops led by u.s.-led coalition forces are pushing deeper into mosul in their offensive to drive out isis from iraq's second largest city. soldiers from iraq's emergency response division are reportedly close to storming the city's old border. observers say this could lead to an isis counteroffensive. iraqi forces pushed isis in january. iraqi state tv says about half of western mosul has been taken. the iraqi push to retake mosul comes as some isis fighters are having second thoughts about what they're fighting for. holly williams has that part of the story. >> reporter: the so-called islamic state is crumbling. iraqi forces are now on the edge of mosul's historic old town. one of the extremists last
7:18 am
strongholds. isis fighters are being killed and rounded up as prisoners. booichb as they lose on the battlefield, they're still waging an online propaganda war, painting themselves as a band of holy warriors. this isis defector who we met in turkey shows just how powerful that propaganda can be. he told us he served in the military in jordan and then joined isis in late 2014. believing they created a just islamic state. but said he quickly realized he'd made a mistake. they kill anyone who argues with them, he told us. he was surprised to discover their brutality. yet, joined the extremists even after he'd watched some of their vicious execution videos, including the beheadings of two american journalists. why would you still join when you had seen them committing
7:19 am
atrocities like that? they said they were cia agents, not journalists he told us. and they slipped a verse from the koran into the video to justify the killings. no muslim could object or say this is wrong. there are many people who came to isis like me, he said, tens of thousands, if they'd known the truth, they wouldn't have joined. for cbs this morning saturday, holly williams, northern iraq. time to show you some of this morning's headlines. the boston globe reports a gay veteran's group that was barred from marching in boston's st. patrick's day parade has now accepted an invitation to join. the change came this friday when a south boston veteran's council under growing public pressure, reversed course and voted unanimously to welcome the so-called outvets. no restrictions will be placed on the group's display of the rainbow banner and logo.
7:20 am
a point of attention when they initially did not accept them. robert james waller who wrote the best selled novel "the bridges of madison county" has died. it was later made into a movie. written in about 11 days. critics panned the book calling it sappy and cliche written. but it sold 12 million copies in 40 languages. it was on the best seller list for three years. robert james waller was 77 years old. the washington post reports that first year doctors throughout the country will now be allowed to work 24 hour shifts, starting in july. the controversial ruling from a medical educational council ends the 16 hour cap in a move to improve patient's safety by reducing the number of doctor to doctor handoffs. supervisors are ordered to keep close watch amid concerns of how sleep deprivation could affect the work and i hope they keep a
7:21 am
close eye on them. >> does make you wonder. the oklahoman says police have released dash cam video of university of oklahoma quarterback baker mayfield's arrest last month. >> oh my god. [ bleep ]. >> i'm done. >> police say mayfield resisted arrest and needed to be tackled to the ground in order to be placed in custody. mayfield is facing public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges among other offenses. he apologized to oklahoma fans shortly after the arrest. baker mayfield finished in the top five of the heisman trophy voting in the last two years. and the bbc reports that the professor whose live tv interview was interrupted by his children was apparently given a choice before the video became a worldwide sensation. he was speaking with the news when his two children burst into
7:22 am
his home office. moments later, the wife struggles to drag the kids out of the room. the video has been viewed or shared tens of millions of times in less than a day. but the bbc producer tweeted kelly, asking if that clip of that appearance could be shared. kelly replied, what would they mean? wondering, quote, is this the kind of thing that goes viral and gets weird? just maybe, sir, it is. >> got really weird. but it's just the best. >> for anybody whose ever done a home meeting on skype, you know that feeling. >> worst nightmare. >> cat, child, whatever. >> yes, put them in the room. it's about 22 after the hour now, here's a look -- oh wait a minute, don't shoot the messenger. set your clocks ahead one hour for daylight

live in philadelphia. this is cbs-3 "eyewitness news." good morning, everyone, i'm jan carabeo, well, we are just about a week away from spring, but not by the looks of this forecast, meteorologist, justin drabick, joins us to break it down. >> morning, jan, looks great looking outside your window, you see sunshine, looks nice, but as soon as you step outside it hits you hard, talking mid winter conditions sticking around for the rest of the weekends even through much of next week, full sunshine this morning, see few fair weather clouds pop up. right now at the airport, 21 degrees, at this hour. west wind at 12. does make it feel like 9 degrees, nasty windchills outside right now, a lot of locations still feeling like single digits, that will be the trends through the morning, getting little better during the afternoon, but you will still need the heavier coat. not much happening on radar,
7:28 am
satellite. pretty quiet over the mid-atlantic, one system passes by to the south, maybe bring in few clouds tomorrow. look at the high temperatures today, seeing right around 50, not even close to 32 for philadelphia, low 30's at the shore, only near 20's up in the poconos. make sure to turn the clocks ahead one hour tonight, daylight saving time begins sunday, and stuck in the positive's, nor'easter on monday. thank you, next update is at 7:57. see you then, have a great day.

7:31 am
throughout his campaign and has recently questioned whether it has been the source of ongoing leaks. here to discuss the state of the agency and what it means for america's security, is cbs news senior security contributor, michael morel. he is also, of course, a former deputy director of the cia. michael, good morning, thanks for joining us. >> good morning, alex. >> let's first get to the wikileaks information that is revealed that microphones on smart tvs and phones can be turned into listening devices, internet-connected cars can be hacked and controlled remotely and crashed. to what degree to ordinary average americans need worry about this? >> they don't need to worry at all, alex. the cia focuses it's activities overseas. it focuses it's activities on foreign nationals. the cia is not permitted by law to target americans. so, americans should not worry about this. just the opposite. they should actually be proud
7:32 am
that their intelligence agency has developed these capabilities to collect intelligence on our adversaries who are trying to undermine our security and to in some cases, kill americans. so i think that's how the average american should think about it. >> michael, wikileaks says it's willing to help tech companies like apple and google secure some of these vulnerabilities that were revealed this week. what problems could arise from that? >> wikileaks has the computer code or says it has the computer code for many of these tools that have been revealed. that computer code itself is quite valuable to our adversaries if they could get their hands on it. because if you can get your hands on a computer code, you can search your own networks and see if the cia has been in your network. that computer code is valuable, and i hope wikileaks does not release it to anyone. >> michael, after the leaks, the white house is saying the cia's systems need to be updated.
7:33 am
is that fair? >> absolutely. i think there's a lot of -- there's a lot of questions here about how did this happen? was this a cia staff employee or was this a contractor? how did they get their access to all of this data? how did they download it on to a thumb drive? how did they get it out of the building? were there red flags that were raised that were missed? were there any red flags on this system at all? so there's a lot of tough questions here that the senior cia leadership should be asking and that congress should be asking about how did this happen? >> but is it clear to you, michael, that this was an inside job? >> anthony, absolutely. this data not shared outside cia. it's only inside cia. it's on cia's top secret network, which is not connected to any other network. so, this has to be an inside job. >> michael, what about the
7:34 am
adversarial relationship between this white house and the intelligence agencies? what are the implications of a president who has been so openly critical of the agency? >> so there's an impact -- there's an impact on moral, alex. when your most important customer is publicly criticizing you, it takes a toll. but i think a bit of that is behind us now. this was primarily before the inauguration. there hasn't been a lot of criticism of the work of the agency since, there's been some criticism of leaks, but not of the works. i hope that's behind us. >> michael morel, thank you so much for being with us this morning from washington, thanks. >> your welcome. still ahead this morning, america in disrepair. from roads to railways to water systems and new report details the sorry state of the nation's infrastructure. and just what's needed to

7:39 am
and one of the most common medical conditions around, arthritis. it impacts the daily lives of millions. this week the cdc published a vital signs report highlighting the growing incidents of arthritis, using health data from 2013 to 2015, the cdc estimated that about 54 million adults in the country have arthritis. that equates to about one in every four adults. the cdc also found that nearly 60% are of working age. how does that impact the working lives, daily lives. >> it really creates a picture of arthritis as being disabling and affecting quality of life. for about 24 million americans, it affects every day activities. things we take for granted like picking up our coffee cup, bending over, walking a couple city blocks. picking up your grocery bags. so it's a big issue for lots of americans with, and in addition, it impacts people who have other diseases, like heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, it makes
7:40 am
it more difficult to manage those diseases. people who have arthritis are twice as likely to suffer an injury-related to a fall. and not surprisingly, it impacts mental health. so about 30% of those over 45 have anxiety and depression. >> wow. >> any sign this is decreasing at all? >> no, it's going up. it's going from 54 million to 75 million estimated in 20 years because we're going to get older. i have to echo what tara said, this is something we take your granted, my entire life, you know, i thought it was a miracle that i could say, go up to my wrist, go down, it doesn't hurt. you know, you have to appreciate that. and it's not until you start to have pain that you realize, this is a big deal. it's serious. >> tara, if adults have arthritis, what can be done? physical activity. and to remain physically active whether it's walking, swimming, cycling, that's been shown to reduce pain and to reduce symptoms by about 40%, in addition, maintain a healthy
7:41 am
diet, discuss medications with their doctors and there are disease management education programings. and those can really help patients learn thousand build their confidence and skills about managing their disease and it's been shown to also decrease pain, fatigue, and depression. all right next up. advances in science and technology are helping us find new ways to fight back against cancer. including immune no therapy. technique harnesses the body's immune system to find and destroy cancer cells. in this clip from tomorrow's cbs sunday morning, the doctor takes a look that the evolving science. >> reporter: what happened to her seems like a miracle. back when she was just nine, feeling weak and dizzy, she was taken to a hospital on long island. where doctors gave her a diagnosis she barely understood. leukemia. 98% of children with this form of cancer respond well to chemotherapy, so her doctor started there, but after four
7:42 am
brutal rounds, the cancer was getting worse. >> and natural reaction is to think, why me? >> uh-huh. yeah, i was like, what did i do badded so that god could give me this punishment? >> reporter: desperate and out of options, she had one last chance. she was enrolled in a clinical trial for an experimental treatment. how's everything? how are you feeling today? >> reporter: after six weeks, the paid yachtic oncologist who treats her couldn't find a single leukemia cell. not one. >> you know, it is a very exciting technique. think about a blood hound. giving the scent to a blood hound. it's like giving the scent of cancer to your own immune system and having it go after the cancer cells, but at the same time, it's a careful delicate line you have to walk when you talk about cancer. at the same time, there are all these exciting new possibilities. there are people out there watching this right now who have cancer, and they are or their
7:43 am
loved ones are really in big trouble. and tomorrow on sunday morning, cbs sunday morning, we're going to talk about the whole water front about treatment, overdiagnosis, about new ways of treating it with other modal distance and also going to be a tear jerker or too two, there's a beautiful piece about a little boy. >> you can catch the full story and more tomorrow as john said on the special edition of cbs sunday morning beyond cancer hosted by john. finally an innovation in stroke treatment. in 204, the cleveland clinic started using mobile stroke units, ambulance specifically designed to improvement treatment times for people who suffer strokes. they also have telemedicine capabilities, a neurologists is able to remotely evaluate a patient as he or she makes his or her way to the hospital. we examined the benefits, the doctor has a look at the results. >> all of the sudden, i had a
7:44 am

president trump right now is working to drum up some support from republicans for the obama carrey placement. they've been working on. so tonight he invited 100 of them to come bowling at the white house. for real. it's a pizza and bowling night. >> white house bowling got started back in 1947, when two lanes were built in what's now known as the situation room, as a birthday gift to harry s. truman. the 33rd president was not a bowling fan. but he did knock down seven of ten pins on the inaugural roll. in 1955, president dwight d. eisenhower moved the lanes across the street to the basement of the old executive office building. richard nixon was the ultimate bowler in chief. he built a state of the art alley located underneath the driveway, leading up to the north port co. both allies are still in use today. and president's george h.w.
7:56 am
bush, bill clinton, george w. bush, and barack obama have all tried their hands at knocking down the official white house pins. >> the real takeaway, design a presidential bowling shirt. >> brilliant. >> nice to have your own alley. >> interesting that president trump is not that interested in camp david, but he is interested in the bowling alley. >> richard nixon bowled at 232 one time. impressive. of course when you're president no one challenges your score. >> that's true. still ahead, very small school with big impact on the game of basketball. new jersey's famed st. anthony's high has sent scores of students to division one schools and seven players to the nba, but the legendary program and the school itself may not survive. some of you your local news is next. the rest, stick around, you're watching cbs this morning

welcome to cbs this morning saturday, i'm anthony mason. >> and i'm alex wagner. coming up this hour, the president tries to rally all the republicans to support a house gop plan on health care. but his work is cut out for him. we'll talk with the man who knows that battle well. then as we get ready for selection sunday, one legendary basketball program has it's own march madness. why this high school that created hundreds of star college athletes may have to shut down. and was ernest hemmingway a spy for both russia and the u.s.? we'll talk with the author of a book that looks at hemmingway's espionage work. but first our top story this hour, president trump's attempts
8:01 am
to replace the affordable care act also known as obamacare. this morning in his weekly address, mr. trump continued to push for a health care plan offered by house republicans. it was cleared by two congressional committees this week. president trump said yesterday that action on obamacare needs to be taken immediately. >> 17 would be a disaster for obamacare. that's the year it was meant to explode. because obama won't be here. that was when it was supposed to be. it'll get worse. as bad as it is now, it'll get worse. >> some conservative republicans say the house plan falls short. they want bigger changes on repealing medicaid expansion and on insurance requirements. for more on the republican push to repeal and replace the affordable care act, we turn to michael feldman, former democratic staffer, strategist, and vet of past health care battles on capitol hill. good morning. >> good morning. >> it sounds like this bill is moviing through the house.
8:02 am
how much in the senate and among senate roms? >> significant. the battle you see playing out in the house, the lines that have been drawn among factions right now are even more difficult in the senate. and of course in the senate, just the way the rules work, there are more places for opposition in the senate. what the republicans are trying to do is pass this through a process called reconciliation. which then allows them to try to get this bill passed with a 50 vote threshold. it's going to be difficult. >> how key a moment is this for administration? when it has it's first major piece of legislation. the president sort of deal making prowess which has been much celebrated is kind of going to be tested here, isn't it? if this deal fails to go through, what does that say about this administration? >> it is a big deal. you only have so much political capital, the fact that they chose this as the first major legislative push is a big deal. look, there are political consequences if he fails, and by
8:03 am
the way, there are political consequences if he succeeds. so it's very tricky first the legislative initiative. >> talk about the consequences. michael, the "new york times" reports that some of the voters, some of the people that may be most adversely affected by the gop's health care plan are in fact trump supporters. 59% of those who would be most adversely affected voted for donald trump in 2016 over hillary clinton by 36%. >> look, health care is very tricky. and history is littered with the corpses of people who tried -- political corpses of people that tried -- >> both sides of the aisle. >> even when you win, sometimes you lose. potentially tense of millions much people who are impacted fwi. some studies say up to 10 or 15 million people could lose the coverage result of this. and to a point, alex. a lot of them are older, they're less affluent, and disproportionate a number of them voted for trump. the political consequences are huge. >> the best. >> you have breitbart coming out and saying it could hurt not
8:04 am
just trump's own voters, but it could hand the white house back to the democrats. when you've got that and you've got hospitals and doctors coming out against this plan, how much does the white house want to push against that? particularly this white house? >> well, two phases. so right now, i would say everybody is positioning. >> yeah. >> democrats are adjusting to their new role as an opposition party. the house and the senate are trying to govern. it's much easier by the way to oppose something than it is to actually propose and posz something -- >> i apologize. >> and the president is learning how to be a deal maker in a very tricky environment. >> and there's a question, the democratic playbook. do they stand out of way or something they should be doing? >> step out of the way while republicans are fighting amongst themselves and remind people about what's at stake. >> michael feldman, good to see you, lots happening on the hill. after a brief taste of spring across much of the nation, winter weather is striking back. this morning, millions of americans are waking up to very cold temperatures and snow. arctic blast is rolling through
8:05 am
from the great lakes to new england and the mid-atlantic states. temperatures are not expected to make it out of the teens in some places with windchills well below zero. one musher in this year's iditarod had to fight up freezing temperatures and sleep. he nodded off while on the sled and only woke up when his face hit the ground. he tried to come up with a better story, but no luck. >> i had i had a great story about how a moose attacked me, i fell asleep. >> the dogs crossed the check point an hour before he did. still ahead this morning, he's one of the most successful

8:11 am
>> reporter: hurley has been a part of 28 state championships in 50 years on the sidelines. he's racked up more than 1,000 victories. >> what are you doing? >> reporter: with several undefeated seasons. >> one, two, three. i think it's eight now. yeah. a lot lately which is good as you're getting older. undefeated last year, and then in '08, '11, and' 12, we've been well vant in the last decade. see you tomorrow. >> reporter: a small catholic school in jersey city, st. anthony's has been a god send to thousands of inner city kids, but it's million dollar debt to the arch diocese could force the school to close it's doors for good at the end of the year. and hearing from board of trustees, st. anthony's wouldn't still be here without you and the fundraising efforts that you've led. >> i will do whatever i can, accept the ask, but if i ask something, i have to give you back twice what i would ask. so, i try to paint the best
8:12 am
possible picture i can about the school without wanting to ask for help. >> reporter: what hurley did agree to do is let show time, division of cbs, follow the team this season. highlighting the program and what it means to it's players. >> it's a story that's been close to me for a really long time. i grew up around the program. my father grew up and played basketball, i coached with him in the '70s. zblrl he's family. >> he is family. >> reporter: brian daley pitched the series after hearing about st. anthony's dire financial situation from his dad. >> the diocese had kind of stepped in and said question no longer help. so you guys need to figure this out fast or it's over. >> reporter: and when you heard that, what did you think? >> two things. one, if this indeed the end, it's going to be a compelling story and it needs to be held.
8:13 am
on the other end of that, hopefully we catch something that is a happy ending. and we're able to help them in saving the school. >> what are you doing? >> reporter: the uncertain future hasn't caused coach hurley to go easy on his play percent. >> wow. you have no basketball iq, what is he doing? why are you coming up the lane? good luck playing after high school. oh my god. look at this group. put your big boy pants on, you can't fall down. you should quit basketball and get a part-time job. answer me. >> reporter: what did you think when you saw yourself? >> i -- it is what it is. i look at myself and i say, i need to be -- i need to be a little more sensitive. catch it. i don't know whether i shoot it. but i'm sensitive when i need to be sensitive. and i care about the kids. but when it comes time for doing things that they should be able to do, i don't lower the bar. >> reporter: hurley got his
8:14 am
start as an assistant coach in st. anthony's when he was just 19 years old. >> i became a probation officer as i became a varsity coach. because i got involved in that stuff, guys started to tell me stories and all the stories were back until they were 12, 13, 14 years old, and they start making bad decisions. and once they get off course, whatever the life potential was, was gone. >> reporter: tough love to the hard court. >> over the course of time, you decided, we had to enter into a contract. now i guess we're up to about 20 things. and it comes to everything. refrain from use of alcohol, tobacco, drugs of any kind. tattoos, get one after you're finished playing. clean cut appearances. no mohawks, facial hair, cell phone in school. you're suspended from the team. so that at the end of your four years, tough love has gotten you to a place where you can go to college. we take away some of your individualism when you don't know what to do with it. and we let you save it when you

two of them, we said, oh, you can stay at st. anthony's, this is good. back two. got to cover that baseline right now. >> reporter: hurley, now president of the st. anthony's has taken a salary in years. so you're giving your time already, so much time, and money on top of it. >> but you know, if you could sit in my seat and then just think back as my wife and i do regularly, how blessed we are. it goes to the backstop -- maybe financially, i could have done better. how many people do you know in your life that have a lot of money and nowhere near as happy as i am? you can slip it, this guy's already going out. you teach the kids to compete all the time. every day to compete. never lower the bar. pay attention to detail. all these things related to sports relate to life. at the end of this thing, the effort will have been made to sustain it because the kids in the building are well worth it. >> reporter: if you can't save st. anthony's, will you have

failed? >> no. i think our athletic success over the years has been against the odds. you know, the amount of championships we've won, the success to kids have had it when they've left here and gone on to college. everything about it defies the odds. and if this ends and we just -- it just ends, wow. 50 years. >> reporter: the school did suffer setback on wednesday, they lost in the new jersey state tournament. with the season over now, hurley's focus undoubtedly turns full-time to raising at least another $500,000 to keep st. anthony's operating next year. the plan is to buy some time to pay back the additional $1 million debt to the arch diocese. >> what an amazing legacy this school has though. i love this philosophy there at the end. >> he's woven the school. he's woven the school into the fabric of community no matter where you go. and he even says nationwide. april 5th will be the meeting where they'll find out if they can raise that $500,000, can

from action on the battlefield to the runs of the bulls. the works of ernest hemmingway take us on amazing adventures. his own life was full of adventure too. including a little known chapter when he was a player in the world of international espionage. a new book details hemmingway's suspected undercover work for both the u.s. and the russians. >> reporter: in late 1940, as ernest hemmingway's new novel "for whom the bell tolls" was a literary phenomenon. he was meeting with a soviet agent to sign up as a spy. when you found this, how did you
8:31 am
react? >> physically ill. >> reporter: nicholas reynolds, a hemmingway fan since he was a boy spent more than a decade as an officer with the central intelligence agency. >> the idea of ernest hemmingway having done anything from the soviets, especially having recruited by the soviets, was really difficult for me to absorb. >> reporter: in his new book, "writers, sailor, soldier, spy" reynolds tracks hemmingway's courtship with soviet intelligence. >> what i found was the record of hemmingway having agreed to a recruitment by the nkbd. which is the predecessor to the kgb. that's a pivotal moment in the spy business. it's like a sail le to a realto. >> reporter: excerpts smuggled out of russia show he was given the code name argo and was recruited by jacob golos, a top agent in the nkbd office in new
8:32 am
york. when did that deal get sealed and how? >> the deal got sealed here in new york somewhere in the lower east side. we don't know exactly. we know he gave a set of stamps. and hemmingway said well, in case i have to meet an unknown, you take these stamps and then when that unknown comes to see me, he can authenticate himself by showing me the stamps. >> reporter: during the '40s, hemmingway had several meetings with soviet contacts. throughout this period, his soviet file reads, argo did not give us any political information, though he repeatedly expressed his willingness and desire to help us. when world war ii broke out, hemmingway would sign up with the office of strategic services, the predecessor to the cia. performing several missions. >> the most colorful was chasing german u boats in the caribbean,
8:33 am
and he took his cabin crews and outfitted that with the office of naval intelligence. >> reporter: ernest hemmingway committed suicide in 1961. reynolds believes his later letters reveal the writer was haunted by his soviet connections. >> he says, you know, i did confidential things for the soviets, and if that came out now, i'd be candidate for the gallows. >> reporter: you think that worry was weighing on him? >> i'm sure it was on the last night of his life, he looks over at the next table and he says those two guys over there having dinner, they're from the fbi. >> wow. >> he first came to the attention when he was covering the spanish war and became thick to the antifascist there. he didn't do much work for the soviets at all. reynolds think he got buyer's remorse. >>
