8:04 am
determined if manafort received any money. i have never received a single off the books cash payment as falsely reported by "the new york times" nor have i done work for the governments of ukraine or russia. the suggestion that i accepted cash payments is unfounded, shrill and nonsensical. >> donald trump has said repeatedly he has no investments in russia. we asked paul manafort last month if trump would release his tax returns to prove that. manafort said notnt is complete. >> nothing to do with russia. has nothing to do with any country other than the united states. and his normal tax auditing process. so, that issue will be dealt with when the audits are done. >> so to be clear, mr. trump has no financial relationships with any russian ol garks? >> that's what he said. that's what i said. that's obviously what our position is. >> this morning's new york times
8:05 am
media over the weekend focussing in on the times. >> the newspapers going to hell. they've got a couple of reporters in that newspaper who are so bad -- i mean, lack of talent. but it's going to hell. so i think maybe what we'll do -- maybe we'll start thinking about taking their press credentials away from them. >> editorial in this morning's "wall street journal" says, quote, mr. trump is right. to lose but then that was also true of george w. bush. george h.w. bush and ronald reagan. the difference is that mr. trump has made it so easy for the media and his opponents. he needs to stop blaming everyone else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be president or turn the nomination over to mike pence. >> wow. mark leibovich is cbs news political contributor, also
8:06 am
the new york times magazine. he joins us at the table. good morning. >> hey, charlie. >> what do you make of all of this? >> well, there is a classic republican play book aspect of this, which is republicans attacking the media, thinking that they are all against them. the thing about trump is it's not background noise. he is leading with this. he seemed to spend all day yesterweetday tg about how awful the media , very precisely going after our paper, whatever paper ticks him off. >> your parp also had a story on sunday how they try his people around him including his family are trying to get him to stay on message. >> yeah. >> never good when they use the word sullen to describe the candidate. >> sullen is a bad word. this is a story we've been hearing for several weeks, almost months now. the sort of nonexistent trump pivot has not really come to pass. and look, it does sort of fit a narrative of not loser dom but certainly a campaign that is spiraling. for someone whose brand has been so predicated on i'm winning, we
8:07 am
good look. >> you have an impression that the people around him know this and he agrees and then he goes off. >> yeah. it's unclear -- he doesn't have a lot of people around him. that's the thing. he has his family. he has sort of a core of enablers and seems like the people he listens to very closely are those who say, let's let trump be trump. corey lewandowski, his former campaign manager got a lot of mileage off of doing that. and trump believes that if he is just as unplugged as he can be all the time, there's audience for it. the problem is it's getting a little bit tired. not just for the party officials and people around him, but for people who are viewing this. because he is not really discharging a lot of new sort of information about himself that can help people learn that this is someone they can conceive as as their president. >> he has a big opportunity today. he has a big speech coming up in ohio. chance for him to pivot, they say. >> yeah. the speech is on foreign policy. i mean, he is going to reiterate some of his themes.
8:08 am
lot of people will be talking about any republicans that might defect this week. i mean, there has been this vicious cycle of distraction that you can almost count on it day to day. and, you know, one of the things you hear over and over again from republicans is he needs to focus on hillary clinton. he needs to talk about what he's going to do. you know, this noise just gets -- this noise just overtakes everything and it becomes it's own entity. >> well from some of the reporting we've seen on what mr. trump plans to talk about with lot of what we've already heard, but specifically focussing in on immigration and terrorism, mixing those two topics. but in some ways, has any of the reporting to this point spoken to his policies and backed them up? >> well, i mean, what he hasn't provided is a lot of specifics. i mean, we know that he -- he wants to build a wall. that he wants to -- i guess what his speech today from what we
8:09 am
it's going to be a crack down on immigration from countries that there is terrorism that we think might be going on. >> that already exists. >> that already exists. how is that going to work? again, it's -- the details aren't really there. >> what do you make of the manafort story? the webf intrigue around t of russia and trump's perhaps close ties to the kremlin. you know, it looks shady. any time you have $12.7 million -- >> do we think trump has close ties to the kremlin, which you >> close ties might be a little strong. i would say this, i think there is a lot of certainly fondness, lot of interest as his praise for vladimir putin, his top campaign aid having these relationship. it's all part of the thing that the clinton campaign can certainly make a lot of hay out of. >> as a split from the traditional republican position. >> absolutely. >> most of his fellow party mates on russia. >> the report --
8:10 am
money was designated for paul manafort. he said very clearly he did not receive. >> that sounds parsey. who knows what that really means. >> the optics are tough on that one. >> it is. look, it's complicated. it's also a ctiodistra they don't need more distractions. >> thank you, mark leibovich. >> thank you, all. >> did you have a great vacation? >> i had a great vacation. >> welcome back. >> i'm trying to get off vacation little slow. >> welcome back. >> glad you came back to us. you sane bolt needed less than 10 seconds to make history. less than ten at the rio olympics last jamaican became the first olympian to win the 100 meter dash three times. simone biles won her third gold in rio with performance on that vault. she is the first u.s. gymnast to win three gold medals at a olympics. they won sabre bronze medal at the olympics. >> i feel like my ha jab is
8:11 am
i believe that it allows people to see me for my voice and not necessarily how i look. i hope that it will change a lot of the misconceptions that people have about muslim women specifically. >> it was great to hear those chants of usa after she was winning. >> it was. it was. anthony ervin is the oldest male swimmer to win an individual olympic medal in more than a century. the american talks about his historic and comeback. >> you're not going to retire? >> no. >> you're 35. >> yeah. how old are you? >> i love that. >> yeah, i'm 35. how old are you? >> but she was very quiet at that. as i would . ahead, why does swimming

8:35 am
>> i probably will read it. i think sitting in that audience might be a slight intense sort of experience but if it calms down at any point, i will. >> let's just say this movie, it was so frightening to me and you were so good add it. >> thank you very much. >> i think how you nailed the accents and mindset you had to get and looking at your background, seems nothing would prepare for you that. how did you nail it so as well? mike german who helped write the script along with our director. mike is a former fbi agent who was on the cover of -- about 10 years and so i was able to pick his brains why he went into that job which is something that is always scary and something i wouldn't do and what life is like. it's actually like where in films, we are sort of used to
8:36 am
you're the worst agent in the world. you have your intellect and your ability to sort of talk your way out of a situation is really all you have. >> and he is a good actor. >> charlie is right. it is called acting. a great scene in the movie where your group confronts an interracial couple and i was wondering how they would get out of that. what did you learn from mike german about that situation? >> what is your first priority as an undercover agent? what are you there to do? ed, no, actually, your main priority is not only should you not be involved in a crime about that, you have the responsibility to prevent that crime from taking place. despite the fact that that would, you know, sort of possibly -- >> what you're trying to do. >> exactly. so it's an incredibly just complex world and the amount of stuff -- like, when mike was doing this, it was early about the early '90s and technology

cassette player attached to his leg and had to flip the tape over every 90 minutes. it's an amazing world. >> white extremists aren't also classified as terrorists in the common perception here. why did you think this was an important thing to connect for people? >> i think that is really important. i know that terrorism -- my dad is northern irish and grew up there during the troubles so i always have that awareness it comes in all shapes and sizes. stigmatized a certain group of people about terrorists was awful for me. so the chance to make the film. this was around the time, i believe as well, when i was reading the script, dylann roof happened. >> the shooter in charleston. >> right. i think the high ups of official and to refer to that as terrorism when, obviously, to me which, obviously, it is. so that seemed to be one of the
8:38 am
was seemed a very good point to make. >> but you would call this terrorism? >> absolutely. any time you're hurting somebody with any sort of political ideology. i think you could use broader terms in terms of just like any act of violence toward somebody else is still terroring somebody but that is probably not what most people mean by it. >> was it a you? some of the clang language asom scenes you had to do. >> it's horrible to say those words. i found i would, like, run up to the people i was throwing these slurs at between takes and say, i'm so sorry, i'm so sorry. those words have power for a reason. yeah, they feel very bad to say. >> do you have a means of balancing film and theater? >> i think i just like to get my hands on as much as i possibly
8:39 am
i just closed a show in new york last night. >> last night? >> yes. >> whoa. >> which was great. and so i've been -- i think film is where i grew up and i'll always love being there and i think theater -- every time i'm in theater, i feel i come away and being a better actor for it and feel i learn something every time. whereoes "harry potter" sit with you? are you sick of people talking about "harry potter"? do you embrace him? >> i think people expect me to be sick of it but when people come out and say what a part of their childhood i am, and all that, to me, i was saying i love "simp "simpso "simpsons" growing up. >> you had voice work there? >> i have. that is when i made it. the fact i might occupy that space in somebody else's childhood is really special and, yeah, no by having a great time on the film so it's not like i'm asked to think about
8:40 am
international identity wherever you go, people think of "harry potter"? >> yes, i think that is probably fair to say. >> you're part of the world. >> it didn't reach, no. which is really impressive when you think about it. right. no, there is -- actually, probably new york is one of the calmer place for me. everyone ignores you. >> what voice on the simpsons" did you do? >> playing from twilight. >> let me hear it. >> no, it was my original voice. the second time i had not practiced my american accent in ages and i did it and it was probably really bad. >> you nailed that accent. >> thank you. >> welcome back. don't be a stranger. the movie opens this friday in theaterses. ahead, we will show you how one place filled has all of the answers.
