gotten from people saying you're hurting the party and you're helping hillary clinton get elected. on the other hand, if you stick with donald trump too long and you finally break, people say you didn't break for reasons 1 through 19 and then on the other hand, you also then get all of the people supporting trump who support him intensely than raging against at you. so the people who are in this unfortunate position can't move. >> what is likely to happen? nothing? >> well, at the moment, yes. a lot of hand wringing. around saying, how do we fix this and how do we stop this? attempts to divert. attempts to break away from him and -- if you're a senate candidate in a vulnerable race you're trying to break away from donald trump. but then, ultimately, hoping somehow things get better without being able to do much to change that. >> there seem to be different levels of response to donald trump even within his own party? >> right. we should probably come up with like rings on a tree. you have the first group of people who are republicans who

olympic park will go dark after being used for just 17 days. so given the staggering costs of hosting the games, some economists are now advocating that you host the olympics in the same place every four years. for example you could do it in olympus, greece, build one olympic park and instead of starting from scratch every four years and leaving all of this behind. >> it's so smart, ben tracy. >> seems like you need basic infrastructure and basic health care and all of those things they are not getting. >> when with you see the problems you wonder if there is one city doing this so well that afs it was a great benefit to them? >> got to be a better way to do it than what they are doing. >> i know. i'm worried about the olympics, aren't you? >> i do too. i just want it to be safe. a baseball player got into a "foul" mood after a fan saw an opportunity. next, we will show you what the

? good morning. it is wednesday, august 3rd, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning.? there is more real news ahead, including new questions about donald trump's comments on workplace, sexual controversial explanation that he made right here on "cbs this morning." we are going to talk to jody cantor of "the new york times" and our legal expert rikki klieman. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> we don't know what caused this dramatic crash. >> it looks like the landing was hard enough to have actually snapped off the landing gear. >> among the first things investigators are going to look for, the plane's black box, similar to this one. they are kept in the tail. >> trump's campaign appears aimless as it makes republicans
8:01 am
questioning trump's fitness for office. >> the apparent position on trump's position on sexual harassment comes after eric trump made comments yesterday on "cbs this morning" that sparked a firestorm of criticism. >> are we reaching that point where the building of pressure causes him to come together and say we can't go any more. >> the problem who has endorsed donald trump has worry about doing anything to help get hillary clinton elected. >> they say the settlement with iran was prisoner release even though they happened at the same time. >> hosting the olympics is typically a pretty great advertisement for the host city, but 63% of brazilians think hosting the games here is actually doing more harm than good. donald trump tweeted a picture of himself on his plane last night, eating kentucky fried chicken, despite the fact that the bucket was clearly endorsing bernie sanders!
8:02 am
a passenger jet carrying 300 people including six americans crash landed this morning in dub dubai. all of the passengers and crew evacuated safely. video appears to show an explosion once the emirates airplane stopped on the runway at dubai in this airport. the plane flew in from southern indiana. passengers were reportedly evacuated within 45 seconds of the crash landing. wow. thicac the boeing 777 and pilot was said to have told passengers during the flight there was a problem with the landing gear. cbs news has been told the landing was hard enough to snap off the landing gear. the national transportation safety board will likely be involved in this investigation. two weeks after the party convention, donald trump says he is not ready to endorse house speaker paul ryan or arizona senator john mccain in their primary fights. trump told "the washington post"
8:03 am
these are horrible times for our country. we need very strong leadership. i'm just not quite there yet. ryan used almost actually the same words in may about getting behind trump. he said, quote, i'm just not ready to do that at this point. i'm not there right now. ryan and mccain have said they back trump but in recent days, both have criticized trump's feud with the family of a fallen soldier. trump declined against last night to decline to the khan's for attacking him. he says he has the right t about him. >> new york's richard hanna is the first republican congressman across party lines to say he will vote for donald trump's opponent hillary clinton. hanna, who plans to retire at the end of his term wrote in an op-ed yesterday, quote, for me, it is not enough to simply denounce his comments. he is unfit to serve our party and cannot lead this country. president obama voiced similar sentiments during a news pconfe prime minister yesterday. the president expressed his
8:04 am
>> there have been republican presidents with whom i disagreed with, but i didn't have a doubt that they could function as president. i think i was right in mitt romney and john mccain were wrong on certain policy issues but i never thought that they couldn't do the job. but that's not the situation here. and that is not just my opinion. that is the opinion of many prominent republicans. which you say, enough. >> well, donald trump said the president does not know what he is doing. new york city police commissioner bill bratton is one of the best known names in law enforcement. if not the best. after more than 45 years of police work, he announced his resignation yesterday. bratton will step down next month as head of the nation's largest police force to join a consulting firm. we are pleased to welcome
8:05 am
>> i want to talk about your record but, first, you've been the top cop in boston and los angeles and twice here in new york city. you know a lot about leadership. do you agree with the president that trump is unfit? >> mr. trump scares me. scares the hell out of me, to be quite frank with you and personal opinion. i just don't get it in terms of the support for him. as a veteran, a vietnam veteran, i'm amazed that veteran groups are so the hot metal incident was appalling. >> why? >> the demeaning, in some respects of that most significant award to be wounded in combat while protecting your country and i've always wanted one of these. amazing. no recognition of the significance of that medal or the meaning of it. no sensitivity there. >> that is one thing.
8:06 am
>> the lack of depth on issues that the "shoot from the hip". i just watched this whole campaign and i just shake my head. again, a personal opinion. i've been in public life and public policy, law enforcement for 45 years, 48 if you include my three years in the army. and i just don't get it. >> not then to be president says bill bratton? >> that is my belief. that is my belief. >> do you know him, commissioner? odd years. not close. but the apartment interactive with him at different times and i know many people who are strongly supportive of them, although they have questions. but, again, it's troubling. >> it's a habit when people strike out at him, he strikes back. so -- >> a tough guy. but i don't know if he's taken a
8:07 am
i'm always amazed by people who are betrayed as tough guys or portrayed themselves as being tough. it is easy to be tough. it really is easy to be tough. it's a lot tougher being soft and understanding when you need to do soft. like the joapolicy gee to the family. what about taking something bad about you if they had that? isn't that the issue? there is no compassion there. strange times. >> may i turn to you? >> i'd rather talk about me. >> this is a big moment. >> all of the reasons that norah cited at the beginning in terms of your experience and what you brought to policing, it somehow seems there must be some other reason you're leaving this job. because you love it. you have said you love police
8:08 am
say it's a career opportunity. you have a responsibility to yourself, but also you have earned the respect of people who feel like they need you here in challenging times. how did you make this decision and what is behind it? >> it's the right time for me personally. i'm 68 years of age and it's the right time for me professionally. the nypd and is moving very forcefully to address all of the issues of the day, issues of race, issues of terrorism, issues of crime and dealing with all of them successfully, although it will take years on the issue of race. it's not a new york issue, it's a national issue. and so for me, i'm able to leave the department in very good shape, as referenced in all of the newspaper coverage today. clearly the right time when you go out with that type of coverage.
8:09 am
extraordinary leader, jimmy o'neill, my successor. i've worked with him the last two and a half years and known him for 25 years. similar to los angeles when i left at los angeles, i was very comfortable with the line of succession was secure. and an individual who believes like i do that policing need to change and he is the right guy to continue that change. >> you came in with john miller. john miller leaving with you? >> i think you guys have to get a big net and try to pull it john, i think, after much criticism from the media when he took the job of counterterrorism chief two and a half years ago has proven himself to be one of the most extraordinary individuals in that area and has held his strength in the defenses of new york city and by doing that, the strength in the national defense. he does an extraordinary well job. john, in terms of making a decision when to come back to the media, hopefully, to you guys is a personal decision for him also.

city of new york in terms of his stepping away from that position, as well as to the country. he is widely respected by everybody on the national and international scene relative to terrorism. >> commissioner bratton, hopefully this wents on't be tht time we see you at the table. >> hopefully, not. i'm the opening act for your next guest. >> you know our next guest and you might have seen her this morning. >> looked pretty good when i saw the house. >> she is actually married to the commissioner. we have seen rikki klieman in all of her natural beauty. there she is. rikki klieman is here along with jodi cantor of "the new york times." we will take ahead this morning

8:16 am
she won't allow herself be objected to it and you should take it up with human resources and i think she would as a strong person. at the same time, i don't think she would allow herself to be subject to to that. >> the republican presidential nominee responded this week to a question about how his daughter ivanka would react to sexual harassment at work. ed, quote, i would like to think she would find another career or another mp case. donald and eric trump's comments sparked a national debate. cbs news contributor and "the new york times" correspondent jodi cantor is here along with rikki klieman, also known as mrs. bratton. jodi, talk about your comments to both of the trump men and what you think it says about the broader perception of sexual harassment at the workplace. >> i've interviewed different women in the industry over the
8:17 am
sexually harassed in the workplace. i've never interviewed one who said she was able to brush it off yaels easily. the pattern is general lower level women are afraid to speak out because they don't have another power in the organization and higher level women feel they have a great deal to lose by speaking out. the roger ailes departure from fox news is many is exceptional. this is not people usually stay silent and threat of a lawsuit is settled out of the public domain. >> are you worried about the comments that eric said ivanka would not let that happen to her. >> women feel to push back. >> a strong woman i think wouldn't allow herself to be sexually harassed.
8:18 am
carlson who sued roger ailes who is a mighty strong woman. look at megyn kelly in the investigation said she was also subjected to inappropriate comments which constitute sexual harassment. we know under the law, sexual harassment affects every person, not only women as jodi has written eloquently about but it could be sexual harassment woman on woman and man on man and woman on man. strong or weak. >> i guess the question, too, what donald trump said in this interview, too, that ivanka would find another career or find another company. the suggestion that it's the woman's responsibility on her own to remove herself from a situation where was she is being sexually harassed is that the right way to look at it? >> of course, it's the wrong way to look at it completely because although ivanka trump or other women who are fortunate enough
8:19 am
find another job. but most of the world cannot. >> then what advice do you have for a whom is sexually harassed? >> i think the sexual harassment advice that any good lawyer would give are the following. first of all, if you feel safe, you should confront your harasser. you should say, what are you saying to me, what are you doing, i don't like. and i don't want you to do it again. putting the harasser on notice which many times you can't feel safe and you can't do that. you should go on, make a pers r you should absolutely go to human resources or a superior. you should look at what your company's policy is, complain promptly. if you wind up at the eeoc, going to the equal opportunity employment group, that what you must do is you got to get there within 180 days and you must, must, must be specific. you can't say he is making me feel awkward. you've got to know exactly what he did and when he did it.
8:20 am
news story is a correspondent reported the sexual harassment and then was retaliated against for reporting it to human resources and up the chain of command. >> that is absolutely the fear. i've never seen a sexual harassment lawsuit play out the way the ailes one has so far. i think it's safe to say, i wonder if you would agree, this is the most consequential sexual harassment suit we have been se ripple effect and hasn't hit the courtroom yet and yet more and more women are coming forward. >> is that two parts? one, because there were repeated snan instances but more importantly it was haneleddled by an indepet law firm which meant people feel more comfortable to come and talk to them? >> it asks the question what is going on in the american workplace. how could this have per sissed so long for fox and where else
8:21 am
>> run lawone lawyer said to me fact that paul weiss acted so quickly two weeks after gretchen carlson filed this suit that is a good sign how corporate america is reacting? >> i think it's a great sign because i think that the roger ailes' lawsuit is one that will really be educational and may prevent more of this. >> thank you both here. and crunchy bites tender s ended up together. that's just what happens when cats call the shots. new friskies tender and crunchy combo. friskies. for cats. by cats. ? if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months, with reduced redness, thickness,
