7:13 am
bipartisan manner? just prove that you're clean on the question of ties to russia. when it gets easier to make the case for getting to the bottom of it than against, i think the white house is in trouble. >> sean spicer, the white house press secretary, according to an article in politico, is conducting a leak investigation, trying to figure out who in my press office is talking to reporters in a way that is not authorized? first of all, if true, is that significant? is this white house any leakier than the average white house? >> it is leakier. but leaks are in any organization, not just in a white house. leaks are a symptom. they're not a cause. and in this case, it's a symptom of a lack of any central leadership and a symptom of the way their boss hears from them. he hears from them by reading his own clips. not by a strong central management system at the white house. >> sean spicer said according to that report, he's doing spot-checks on staffers' cell phones to find out. can i see your cell phone, please? >> you'll find a lot of
7:14 am orders. >> thanks very much. coming up, former president george w. bush will give us his take on all things washington in an exclusive live interview. and he's going to introduce us to veterans he's brought along with him. and tomorrow, live on capitol hill ahead of president trump's first address to congress. house speaker paul ryan will be our guest exclusively. and will take you on a tour live of the capitol. also this morning, new information on a terrifying crash at a mardi gras parade that happened over the weekend. the driver was highly intoxicated when he slammed into a crowd is facing several charges. gabe gutierrez with the latest. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. 20 people were taken to this and other hospitals. incredibly, no one was kill eed. but now, we're finding out what

the driver did after that crash. this morning, neilson risuto is being held on bail, charged with multiple crimes. police say his pickup truck plowed into a crowd of bistanders. among them new orleans police sergeant, michelle woodfor, in stable condition. >> how she wasn't killed is a miracle. >> reporter: he saw the horror unfold and ran to help. >> when he sped up, people were bouncing off of the hood of his car like bowling pins. >> reporter: he says a police officer tried to open the driver's side door but it was jammed. so, he ran to the passenger side. >> he was curled up in a fetal position, facing the driver's side. i reached him and grabbed him by the collar and yanked him out. he flew on to the ground. and the thought crossed my mind was he realized what he did and he was so scared that he was just like a scared little child.
7:16 am
>> this could be a mass casualty incident. >> reporter: his blood alcohol content was 0.23, three times over the legal limit. >> it's hard to talk to somebody that is intoxicated that runs into a crowd. >> reporter: but some say the street should have been closed. >> this sends a clear message this has to be done. >> reporter: do you believe that street should have been closed off? >> that street, 100%, should be closed off. if they don't close it off for next year, there's a problem. >> reporter: also among the injured, a 1-year-old child. matt and savannah, authorities say more charges are possible as this investigation continues. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you. just before the oscars last night, movie fans were stunned to learn of the sudden death of bill paxton. in a statement, his family says he died due to complications

[ cheers and applause ] welcome back to "today" on a monday morning. much of george w. bush's post-presidency work has been dedicated to issues that veterans face after returning home. with a growing number suffering traumatic injuries and post-traumatic stress, president bush is working on programs that ease them back into civilian life. "p "portraits of courage," he uses
8:11 am
his painted to highlight the sacrifice and courage of the military veterans. we'll talk to them in a moment. thanks for joining us. >> it's been a while. >> it has been a while. let me get caught up on some things. you took office in 2001, after a contentious election. controversial. and the supreme court decided it. the nation was incredibly divided. how would you compare the divisions we faced then, to what we're living through right now? >> it's hard to compare times. one thing is for certain, the job is a tough job. everybody looks at the presidency when they campaign one way. then, they get in office and find out there's a reality to the job. and you know, there's been times when we've been divided. i remember growing up as a kid. i got out of college, we were really divided. and it's -- you know, it requires a lot of people coming together to try to make us united. >> but there's enormous division right now. and although president trump
8:12 am
says he hopes to unify the country, have you in the first month, seen him do or say anything that in your opinion would be an attempt to heal the wounds of the election? >> first of all, there's only with been one month in office. secondly, i they you have to take the man for his word that he wants to unify the country. we'll see if he's able to do so. it's hard to unify the country with the news media being so split up. when i was president you mattered a lot more because there were three of you. and now, there's all kinds of information being bombarded out. and people can say things anonymously. and it's just a different world. >> you bring me to an interesting point because you were a guy that faced praise and criticism from the media during your time in office. even at the times when you were dealing with the worst criticism, where it must have been very difficult to hear and read some of the things that were being said by the pressure in this country, did you ever consider the media to be the
8:13 am
enemy of the american people? >> i considered the media to be indispensable to democracy. that we need an independent media to hold people like me to account. i mean, power can be very addictive. and it can be corrosive. and it's important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power. whether it be here or elsewhere. one of the things i spent a lot of time doing, trying to convince a personal like vladimir putin, for example, to accept the notion of an independent press. >> right. >> and it's kind of hard to tell others to have an independent, free press and we're not willing to have one ourself. >> you mentioned vladimir putin. so many questions about the contacts between trump associates during the campaign and the russian government. as a former president, would you like to see a special prosecutor appointed to look into this for once and for all and give the american team answers? >> i think we all need answers. whether or not the special
8:14 am
prosecutor is the way to go, you're talking to the wrong guy. i have great faith in richard burr. he's the head of the intelligence community. and independent thinker. if he recommended a special prosecutor, i would -- it would have credibility with me. but i'm really -- i've never been a lawyer. i'm not sure the right avenue to take. i am sure, though, that that question needs to be answered. >> it was only eight or nine months after you took office that the attacks of 9/11 occurred. the worst terrorist attack on american soil. and just after those attacks, you gave a speech and you said this -- i want to speak tonight to muslims throughout the world. we respect your faith. it's practiced by millions of americans and by millions more in countries that america counts as friends. its teachings are good and peaceful. that's very different talk than what we're hearing today about a muslim ban. do you think the president's position on this has been well
8:15 am
thoughtout? >> i think it's very important for all of us to recognize one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to or not worship at all. the bedrock of our freedom, a bedrock of our freedom, is the right to worship freely. and i -- you see, i understood right off the bat, matt this, is an ideological conflict. and people who murder the innocent are not religious people. they want to advance an ideology. and we've faced those in the past. >> but banning people from seven muslim countries from this country, do we make it easier or harder to fight the war on terrorism? >> i think it's hard to fight the war on terrorism if we're in retreat. and i think we learned that lesson. if the united states decides to pull out before a free society emerges, it's going to be hard to defeat them. the enemy is very good about
8:16 am
exploiting weakness. it's going to be important. if that's the goal, to defeat isis, which i believe it should be, that we project strength. now, whether or not the domestic politics plays helps them or not. >> you for or against the ban? >> i'm for an immigration policy that's welcoming and upholds the law. >> you sat at the inauguration. you listened to president trump's inaugural address. and he talked about carnage and so much has gone wrong in this country and so much is wrong. is that the america you see when you travel around this country? >> the america i see often is the america these vets represent, people willing to sacrifice for the greater good to put their lye lives on the l and make america a great place to live. that's why i'm here. i'm selling this book because i want america to realize how fortunate we are to have people in our midst and help them
8:17 am
transition from being a vet to a civilian. >> and you transitioned me perfectly. you're going to stick around. let me tell people, we want to talk about "portraits of courage" and meet some of the military veterans that the president is honoring. first, though, a few of the stories behind the paintings you'll see. >> my name is alexander glen-camden. >> i was a staff sergeant in the united states infantry. >> i was a medic in the army. >> our country is blessed to have people who are willing to sacrifice for something greater than themselves. >> at a young age, i realized how lucky we were to live here an i wanted to give back. >> it was the best decision i ever made. and i would do it again in a ha heartbeat if given the opportunity to. >> not only do the vets have physical injuries. but they are also dealing with pts and tbi. >> we do a good job of hiding it, we don't get the help we need. >> i found i was in my room a
8:18 am
lot of times. >> i knew i had to change something about my life. i was actually dying. >> i wanted to draw attention, not only to their courage, but to the fact that they've contributed once and they need to know they can contribute again. >> i've done more in my life with one leg than i probably ever would have done with two. and i feel lucky and fortunate. >> there's a lot of veterans that die by suicide. get them out of the house and doing things and back together with other veterans, has been huge. >> blacksmithing is my form of expression. it's become my therapy. it's become what i do. it's my healing. >> wow. look at there. that's me. wow. that's amazing. >> i guess it does kind of resemble brad pitt, you know? >> that's pretty cool. i love that hat. >> that's really cool that the president actually thought of
8:19 am
painting me. >> each one of these paintings was painted with a lot of respect and affection. i know each person i painted, i was thinking about their backgrounds, their service, their injuries and their recovery. and so, there's a lot of compassion and a lot of energy in each one of these paintings. >> we're happy to have savannah joining us along with some of the veterans featured in "portraits in courage." chris self, melissa stockwell. michael rodriguez. and air force master sergeant, israel del toro. we call him d.t. good morning to all of you. >> i wish everybody could see how all of you interact when the cameras aren't on. these are true friendships among all of you, which made your job, i would think, all the harder. here you are, they're portraitist. you have to capture the essence of them. what was going through your mind? how did you feel? first of all, i want to sell a lot of books to raise money for
8:20 am
helping our vets. that's where the proceeds go. secondly, i got to know all four of them pretty well. and i felt great pride. and people asking me, do you miss being president? not really. but i miss saluting people who volunteer to wear the uniform. and all four of them did. >> you said to people over the years as all presidents do, the most sobering responsibility of a commander in chief, is making the decision to put americans into harm's way. getting to know these people and especially in your postpresidential years, do you have a new view of that? >> no. it's still hard. hard decision to make. my view is this -- how can we help these great americans transition from the military to civilian life? they've got visible wounds. invisible wounds. but all four of these vets are willing to stand up and say, i had an issue. and i want to help somebody else. and so, we have done a lot of work on this issue. it's peer-to-peer the counseling helps a lot.
8:21 am
there's groups like the langdone center here and the vet centers around the country that are able to help vets. it starts with, and these are what vets are important. vets saying, i got a problem. in other words, there's a lot of denial because there's a stigma. and our message is, it's courageous to talk about it. and seek help. >> first, i have to say, did he get the portraits right? did he capture you guys? >> i think so. >> chris, you said he made you better looking. talk about it. you talked about the invisible injury. the injury that you can't see. what's your message to people? what do you want them to understand about this transition to civilian life? >> i think the message is that first, don't keep it to yourself because, like the president said, the peer-to-peer counseling, peer-to-peer mentorship, through the hard times, are the best way to come out with it. and you know, find someone you can trust. you can talk to. and make sure you're discussing the feelings for those wounds
8:22 am
that people can't see. >> by the way this, guy was in combat twice on one leg. >> yeah. the stories of actual perseverance are unbelievable. melissa, you lost a leg when your convoy hit an ied in iraq. what has transition to civilian life been like for you? >> i feel fortunate to have the mentorship, the camaraderie of the military. and being backed by the president, i can't tell you enough about going to the president's ranch on the w-100 and riding a mountain bike with other wounded soldiers and showing there is life after disability. i've done more in my life with one leg than i would have done with two. i feel like a lucky girl. >> you were rememberable to the president, other than a rock star, the only one wearing sunglasses when you first met. and can you talk about why and the significance of that. >> it was one of the traumatic brain injuries i had. i was sensitive to light. i would hide my double vision a
8:23 am
lot. i was always winking. after a visit to the boss' ranch, i saw the connection he had with us. and when you have sunglasses on, you lose that connection with someone. and i used to use it to hide behind. i was hiding what i was dealing with. when i saw he reached out and he opened his heart and home to us, and the caring way that president bush does, it inspired me to try to connect with people, as well. >> yeah. it was nice to take the glasses off. it was awesome to paint his eye. >> d.t., you are -- talk to me, first, about the injuries you sustained. and i want to mention as you do, you're still active duty, aren't you? >> i am. i'm still active duty. the first 100% disabled airman to re-enlist in the air force. i'm pretty happy that i'm still able to serve because it's hard to find a job, a job that you truly love. and i love being in the military.
8:24 am
i love being with these guys. did i think of myself as be this person that people look up to me? i just -- no. this is never going to be my ideal job. i was going to be an operator. do my job. call in air strikes. but my injuries, 80% of my body has third-degree burns. i was almost -- i almost died three times. they told me i'll never walk again. i'll be on a respirator for the rest of my life. and i would still be in the hospital another year and a half when i woke up from four months in a coma. and two months after they told me that, i walked and breathe on my own out of the hospital. >> well, your spirit is undeniable. all of you. i'm not going to put you on the couch, president bush. i know you wouldn't like that. you know what rod said. he thinks this painting of portraits is as therapeutic and beneficial for you. >> no question about it. it's beneficial. it keeps me active so i'm not on the couch chewing potato chips. two, it's one of the great
8:25 am
learning experiences. and it keeps me in touch with our vets in a unique way. when i was president, i said i'm going to have your back in a minute. and the post-presidency, i vowed that i'm going to help our vets as much as i possibly can for the remainder of my life. >> we have 45 seconds left. what don't americans get? what don't we get about transitioning back to civilian life for a lot of you folks? >> i don't think they get the fact that when veterans transition back to civilian life, they don't need a handout or favors. they want opportunities. i have the privilege of helping veterans in my postmilitary job and helping them find employment. from employers, we want to hire vets. we can't find them. that sounds like an excuse to me. they're out there, give them the opportunity. they'll excel in your business. >> i'll tell you one thing. these vets don't want self-pity. they don't want to be pitied. they want to be helped.
