morning." gayle king is off and vinita nair is with us. a unique twist this morning in the 2015 republican presidential race. donald trump's critics are blasting him, not for what he said, but what he did not say. one of his supporters in new hampshire repeated a well-known lie about president obama's faith. the republican presidential front-runner did not challenge it. >> democratic candidate hillary clinton hammered trump his reaction. nancy cordes is in washington with another reminder on the campaign. >> reporter: one tends to forget well before trump was a presidential candidate, he was the poster child for the birther movement, repeatedly questioning whether the president was born here in the united states. so when that questioner at his town hall called the president a foreigner and a muslim, trump did nothing to correct him. >> it's called muslims. we know our current president is one. you know he is not even an american. >> we need this question -- this

7:07 am
he spoke with iran's president and the first interview with him since july's agreement. here is a preview of sunday's report. >> reporter: i'm sure you realize that it is difficult for many americans to get past the fact that president obama has signed an agreement with a country that says death to america, death is real. how do you explain this? what are they to make of it? are they to take it literally? is this for domestic internal iranian political consumption? what are americans to make of it, the language? [ speaking in foreign language ] >> reporter: this slogan that is chanted is not a slogan against the american people. our people respect the american people. the iranian people are not looking for war with any country but, at the same time, the policies of the united states have been against the national interests of iranian people.
7:08 am

7:09 am
saying which is still very hard line and rouhani are saying and much more moderates and i think they are both talking with their country. >> they are supporting the deal -- beyond the deal? >> absolutely. and believes -- and i think rouhani, the president said he believes he will approve and what is going on in the bitter debate is expected to be a pretty bitter debate in the parliament next week, regardless what happens, that the deal is going to go through and the hardliners will fall. >> what does this mean for the future of u.s./iranian relations? >> it's hard to say. i think the iranians want to be slowly. the ayatollah saying no future koomgs cooperation on anything other than this deal but some coordination is going on right now between the shiite muslims in iraq and u.s. air support.
7:10 am
there is probably a role for the united states and iran to discuss and i'm sure back channel negotiations are going on now to talk about what is going on in syria. >> do you think any opportunities for american investment in that region? >> i think the opportunities are there or will be there but it's interesting to see whether they are taken advantage of. president rouhani essentially rolled out the red carpet and said tourism. we would like to americans over here and like for iranians to go to america and we think that would help bolster the relationship. very, you know, remarkable change between rouhani and the past president. a lot has happened there in the past year.

tt2watx#`o4 p bt@q>v8 tt2watx#`o4 p "a@q.z\ tt2watx#`o4 p bm@q%qp tt4watx#`o4 r dztq yah tt4watx#`o4 r entq )e( tt4watx#`o4 r gzt& 0bp it is friday, september 18th, 2015. welcome to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including senator bernie sanders here in studio 57. we asked the presidential contender how he plans to take down the establishment candidate. but, first, here is a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> when that questioner at his town hall called the president a muslim and a foreigner, trump did nothing to correct hawaii im president obama has signed an agreement with a country that says that to america. >> ho do>> it will explain if military charges could send bergdahl to prison the rest of
7:58 am
>> buses are lined and and the refuges lined up as far as you can't see. the papal trip is packed with an event and making sure the pope gets to everything he wants safely is a huge challenge challenge. in the hole! >> i don't know about you. >> no. >> no? >> toss the candidates a nice softball asking them what woman they would like to see on the $10 bill. >> i would go with ronald reagan's partner margaret thatcher. >> congratulations to the dance on the 10 dollar bill, kim. i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and vinita nair. gayle king is off. donald trump usually makes news for what he does and says. this morning, he is getting hit for something he did not do or say. it happened at a town hall
7:59 am
trump failed to correct a man who said president obama is a muslim and, quote, not even an american. >> the problem in this country, it's called muslims. we know our current president is one. american. >> we need this question, this first question -- >> but any way! we have training camps rolling where they want to kill us. that's my question. when can we get rid of them? >> we are going to be looking at a lot of different things and a lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. we are going to be looking at that and plenty other things. >> the trump campaign responded to criticism with this statement from the candidate. quote, the media wants to make this issue about obama. the bigger issue is that obama is waging a war against christians in this country. their religious liberty is at stake. republican candidate chris christie was asked about the trump supporter this morning. christie said i wouldn't have
8:00 am
permitted that and democratic candidate hillary clinton tweeted that trump's inaction was disturbing and just plain wrong. >> hillary clinton's main democratic rival in the presidential race is currently bernie sanders. he is with us this morning. sanders is ahead of clinton in iowa and new hampshire. the vermont senator calls himself a democratic socialist. thousands attend his rallies and his platform calls for ending income inequality. he sees answers in universal health care and paid family leave. he is the cover of this week's "time" magazine and pleased to have him here in studio 57. welcome. you're doing something right obviously. >> yeah. >> people talk about socialists and democratic socialists. for you, what does it mean? >> what it means is we should take a hard look at countries like denmark, norway, finland, other countries around the world which achieved some middle gains for the middle class and working families of these countries.
8:01 am
we are the only major country on earth that doesn't guarantee health care to all of our people. the only other major country that doesn't have sick time to our workers and family medical leave and paid vacation time. many countries around the world make sure their young people can get free public college and free tuition at public colleges and universities. we have far more income and wealth disparity that most major countries on earth. what we have seen in recent years, proliferation of millionaires and billionaires, we continue to have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on earth. these are some of the areas that i think we have got to focus on. >> does it mean a lot more involvement of the government in our lives? >> what it does mean is that we are going to ask the wealthiest people in this country doing well and large corporations making billions of dollars in profits and not paying a nickel in taxes to start paying their fair share of taxes so we do not continue to see the disappearance of the middle
8:02 am
class, do not continue to see 45 million people living in poverty and bring us a little bit more equality in the country than we kurmt have currently have. >> would that mean taxing the wealthiest americans at 90%? >> i don't think you have to go up to 90% but you can remember that on the people like dwight david eisenhower, under him, we had taxes far more progressive than it was today. >> which was around 90%. >> we will come up with some very specific ideas. >> how can do you that? you're promising free health care for everybody, college for everybody, paid leave and you haven't yet said how you're going to pay for it and suggested you would tax the wealthiest americans at a rate of about 90%. >> i did not suggest that. >> what would you tax the wealthiest americans? how would you pay for this plan? >> this is what we would do on. if you want tuition-free public colleges and universities, which i believe we will have a tax on wall street speculation, which will more than pay for that.
8:03 am
we will end the fact that profitable corporations, in some cases, in america today, pays zero in federal taxes because they stash their money in the cayman islands and bermuda. >> you want to raise the corporate taxes? >> yes. >> how much would you raise the corporate tax? >> you're seeing estimates and people see the estimates "wall street journal" is -- >> the "wall street journal" what they said and we responded to it, that included 15 billion dollars for national health care program. what they forgot to say is that you would not be paying and businesses would not be paying for private health insurance. so, in other words, right now if you're paying $12,000 a year for blue cross/blue shield would you not pay that. every study in the case we would lower that goal. >> you're calling for a single payer health care system but
8:04 am
that in 2011 and the democratic governor said we can't afford it and rolled it back. your own state can't carry that. how is america? >> every other country in the world does it. >> how did vermont figure it out? >> i'm not the governor of the state of vermont but you can ask the conservative of -- you can ask every other major country on earth how they guarantee health care to all of their people with far per cost per capita in the united states. you can ask how it is that we pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs 1 out of 5 americans can't afford the cost of prescription drugs in this country and fill the prescription. >> there is no disputing what you're talking about. i think what your own democratic governor and you're running as a democrat encountered in vermont is that while it was an ideal to give everyone health care for all, the ability for actually paying for it became the real problem and he didn't want to bust the budget in vermont. >> what we are talking about --
8:05 am
we spend far more per cap to on health care than any other country. 30% have zero health insurance and millions more are underinsured. no one debates that fact. how can you create universal health care for every man, woman and child and do it in an effective way? other countries do it. the united states of america can do it. i know the private insurance companies don't like this idea. we will put them out of business and the drug companies that are ripping off the american people and charging us the highest prices in the world don't like the idea. tough luck. >> two things. one, is it time to sort of lay out the specifics that you have in terms of spending priorities, as well as tax reform. >> sure. >> in terms of what level you'll be taxing and what the recommendations you'll recommend will be eliminated and all of that? >> the answer is yes. four and a half months and i haven't been able -- we have more information out there, more specifics than i think most other candidates. about money. let's talk about your recent fund-raising.
8:06 am
tiny donation. what is it appealing to the small like $31 is the average? >> $31.21 but who is counting? >> these small donations are very different from the front-runner which is hillary clinton. >> well, look. i don't want one. i don't represent the corporate agenda and i don't represent billionaires. i don't want their money. but what we are trying to do is to see whether millions of people are prepared to make modest contributions, $31 to say that you know what? maybe we will create a government that works for ordinary americans and not just for the wealthiest people in this country who, today, clearly dom what goes on in congress. we have a campaign finance system through citizens united which is corrupt and it's undermining-- >> supreme court decision? >> yes. 5-4 decision said that billionaires like the koch brothers can buy the united
8:07 am
states government and i want to overturn that and be dependent on small contributors. >> how do you defeat hillary clinton on march 1st super tuesday and some of those southern states? you have a plan to do that. how do you plan to do it? >> we do. again, only in this campaign in this four and a half months and initial put a lot of our resources into new hampshire and iowa and south carolina we are doing more. we think on super tuesday a lot of states out there we have a very good chance to win and we have enough money to put together a strong grassroots organization. we are going to, obviously, be doing tv and radio but we are also going to be having a whole lot of folks knocking on doors one-to-one, talking to people about who i am and what our program is. i think our program about raising the minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour, about creating millions of jobs and rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, dealing with climate change in a significant way will resonate with people all over this country. >> we are pleased to have you back to talk about that. >> we would love to have you back.
8:08 am
>> still got months ahead, right. >>? >> we do. senator bernie sanders, thank you for being here.

a double-double with fries animal style in you know what that means, you're probably a fan of in-n-out burger. many are loyal to the chain that began six decades ago in california and own on "cbs this morning," ben tracy brings u.s. a rare visit with the company's president to find the secret sauce of in-n-out's success. >> reporter: when in-n-out opened a new store in medford, oregon, this month, it brought his burgers to the pacific northwest for the first time! and that brought a long line of devoted fans. >> if there was a new wendy's or a new mcdonald's opening up at medford, would you wait in line? >> no. >> she drove three hours and
8:12 am
stayed overnight in a hotel and showed up at 7:00 a.m. to get in line. why are people to devoted to this? >> you sound like someone who has never had an in-n-out burger! >> reporter: celebrities have been seen downing double-doubles on oscar niedght. julia child said it was one of her favorite burgers and what keeps most people coming back is a simple menu that basically hasn't changed since harry truman was president, burger, fries, sodas and shakes. >> it's about the quality, the friendliness and cleanliness and we keep it simple. the one thing you've used throughout the years is reclusive. you guys don't talk a lot about in-n-out or do interviews. why is that? >> we back away. we don't want to be in the
8:13 am
lot of attention and we want to do what we do best, and that is serve good burgers to our customers. >> reporter: this got its start in 1948 when lynsi's grandparents opened a burger stand in baldwin park, california. they had a two-way speaker and created the first drive-thru burger join in california. down the road the mcdonald brothers were also selling hamburgers but the two companies took divergent paths. mcdonald's became a franchise and by 1976 had 4,000 u.s. stores. in-n-out had 18. today, mcdonald's has more than 14,000 u.s. stores, in-n-out, just opened number 304. every one still owned by the snyder family. what do you think your grandparents would think of seeing 304 stores and people packed in here? >> well, i think they would be amazed because they had no idea we would end up here.
8:14 am
fast, but the company's growth is purpose entry so. in-n-out can be found in a few dozen counties in six states and each must be within miles of their distribution centers where their burger patties is made because at in-n-out, nothing is frozen or microwaved. store managers can make six figures. that could explain the service with an actual smile. i can tell you're excited about this. you really like this? >> oh, definitely! i love it! >> reporter: doing things their own way is why in-n-out has repeatedly turned down wall street. unlike its competitors which have raised hundreds of millions of dollars by going public. >> what can i get you today, sir? >> reporter: in-n-out is now estimated at an $1 billion but along with success there has also been tragedy. >> the flame hit the ground. >> reporter: lynsi's uncle ran
8:15 am
the company nearly 17 years but he died in a plane crash in 1993. >> here we are at the grand opening of store number 96. >> reporter: her father guy took over but died of an overdose of painkillers six years later. eventually lnysi was the only heir left and she gains full control of the company when she turns 35. could you ever see a time where you go public or where you franchise or where you sell? >> no way. >> reporter: never? >> never. the only reason you would do that is for the money and i wouldn't do it. my heart is totally connected to this company because of my family and the fact that they are not here, you know, i have a strong tie to keep this the way they would want it. >> reporter: for nearly 70 years, that's meant selling burgers without selling out. for "cbs this morning," ben tracy, medford, oregon. >> our thanks to ben tracy for making us all hungry this early
8:16 am

8:22 am
have a great day. welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour from co-starring in fargo to playing a new father, colin hanks in our green room. we will get a new sneak of his piece "life in pieces" ahead. time to show you this morning's headlines. st. george, utah, reports on a student sent home on school because of his mohawk haircut. school officials say the haircut was too distracting and it is common among a seneca national tribe. he was able to return to school after a letter was written to school officials. new photos from pluto from nasa's news spacecraft. they released the images that
8:23 am
were taken 15 minutes after the spacecraft's closest approach to the dwarfed planet. it shows thick mountains and thick haze floating through the sky. we want to bring you more of our conversation this morning with presidential candidate bernie sanders. during a commercial break, we asked about republican front-runner donald trump, not correcting a supporter who called president obama a muslim who is, quote, not even an american. >> i think it's a disgrace to, again, question whether or not the president of the united states was born in this country i thought we were beyond that. it's an outrage. >> you saw how senator mccain acted much differently when he years ago. >> right. and to continue this mythology and this ugliness to suggest that the president of the united states was not born an american, we all remember trump was one of year ago. i thought maybe he had learned something from that.
8:24 am
this is not what american politics should be -- >> the other interesting thing about this is whether there is this mood in the country of which you're getting support from and he is also getting support from for very different reasons, but also for one principle reason that there is a feeling in america that something is dramatically wrong. >> something is dramatically wrong when the rich get richer and everybody else gets poorer, but that has nothing to do with whether or not president obama was born in america or whether he is a christian. >> and what about trump on immigration? >> well, i think he is dead wrong. i think clearly what we need is comprehensive immigration reform and we need a path towards citizenship for the 11 million people who are undocumented. >> it's interesting to see bernie sanders react in that way. >> indeed. >> i think there is universal criticism of that, even from republicans this morning. >> i look forward to him laying out his plan, as we talked about in the primary interview, in terms of exactly what he wants
8:25 am
to do to achieve the goals he suggested. >> how it affects taxes as well. that is one big question. >> taxes, big thing. >> we will continue to cover that. we are exciting here at cbs because of new program on our show. colin hanks began his career as an extra in the 1996 movie "that thing you do." he earned an emmy nomination in his role of gus grimly in "fargo." he stars in gnaw comedy on cbs. he plays a first-time father dealing with the sfrestress of being a new parent. >> i'm so happy! >> it's incredible! >> who is letting us leave the hospital? >> no. i mean, they could lose their license. i never even held a baby until yesterday! slow down! >> colin hanks, welcome to the table and to the cbs family. >> thank you very much. pleasure. >> i love that seen.
8:26 am
many first-time parents can remember that and it was based on a personal experience you had, right? >> yeah. before we shot the pilot, we had meeting so i could meet zoe who plays my wife and we were sort of talking with the director and the writer and i just told the story about when i took my -- when my wife and i took our first-born from the hospital and we were crying tears of joy. the next thing i know, it's in the script and we shot it and they shot a whole other seen and plouffed that one in. i've learned now to keep the family secret. mum. i don't want the writers putting everything in. >> we mentioned "fargo" you also did "dexter." you've played a lot of dark roles and this is so fun. which is more enjoyable for you to play as an actor? >> the variety. spice of life i think a wise person once said. i want to try and do something different. when you wait for a really great show like "fargo," you spend seven years waiting for something great, and then in that seven years, they go and create an anthology series which means you only get to be on it once so you got to find
8:27 am
something else. "life in pieces." the way it was written so funny, the structure of the show is different with the four short stories every week and telling this family's greater story and it was engaging and funny and the chance to laugh at work i will never turn that down. >> was it inevitable that you become an actor? >> not necessarily. you know? for whatever reason, wearing makeup and playing pretend seemed like a good idea. whether someone else in the family was doing it or not, i mean, i was, obviously, around for all of that, but i don't know. it just came naturally to me and something i always enjoyed. >> did he encourage you? >> he encouraged me to have as much fun as i possibly could have and do whatever it is i wanted to do but it needed to be what i wanted to do. and i was really -- >> more oversee to persuade you? was this like this is a really hard life? >> no. he said if this is what you want to do, great. but you have to want to do it
8:28 am
