people that i represent right. >> let me ask you a question about this question of taxes. you're being audited. you said you won't release your returns. what about releasing a summary? that's what candidates will do, it will show your deductions, your tax rate, will you do that? >> of' already released my financials, which are massive, and by the way, we've shown a tremendous company. it's over 10 billion in net worth that i've built with a small starter loan years ago. that's down and filed in the federal elections office. and if they want to see it they can see it, and obviously, all of your cohorts have gone through it in great detail. you don't learn very much from tax, hey, john, you don't learn very much from tax returns, let me tell you right now. but when you're under audit, you don't give your papers. i've been under audit for so many years. every year i get audited for i
3:44 am
i've been audited. and i think i'm being singled out, and it's not a fair situation. i have friends that are very wealthy, and i say, you get audited? they don't know what i'm talking about. it's very unfair. >> let me ask you, it's also been raised about foreign workers in florida. the "new york times" said there were people who wanted the job. you said basically you could only find foreign workers because there weren't americans who wanted the jobs. but the "new york times" said there were beam people who did want the jobs. >> d's very hard to hire qualified people. and a lot of people didn't want the job because it's a three or four month job, it's just during the season. we call it the hot season, the high season. it's hard to get people. everybody is working. and then during the offseason, it's easy, but we don't have the people during the offseason, because the club closes during
3:45 am
so a rot of people don't lot of people don't want a part-time job. >> are' saying companies should come babb here, build their products here, have american workers. why wouldn't they say a version of what you're saying? they can't find workers. >> they're full-time jobs. when you're talking about that kind of thing you're talking about full-time jobs. a lot of the people we've made offers to, when they hear it's part-time job or a four month or five-month job, i understand this, they're not interested. they're american people, they're not interested. what you don't hear about is the thousands of people that i do hire. i have thousands and thousands of people on my payroll. over the years, i have had tens of thousands of people who work for me. are' picking out one club that has a high season, and it's very, very hard to get people in palm beach during the season, the social season. >> michael hayden said that if you ordered u.s. forces to kill
3:46 am
which you've suggested and also to use water boarding as you've also suggested, that they would refuse you. what's your response to that? >> i don't know what he means by refuse. i can only tell you there's a lot of bad things going on. they're chopping off heads in syria and all over the middle east. isis is doing a number and plenty of others beyond isis are doing it now. and all i know is that when they start chopping off heads, we have to be very firm. we have to be very strong. we have to be very vigilant. i heard his statement and we have to be very strong. can you imagine these people that chop off heads of christians and plenty of other people and they do did routinely and drown people in big steel metal cages. they drown them. they leave it in for a half hour and pull it up and everybody's dead. when they talk about us with water boarding, they have to give me a break. if we're not going to be tougher, we're never going to win this war. the cbs

say, have you seen all the amazing technology in geico's mobile app? mobile app? look. electronic id cards, emergency roadside service, i can even submit a claim. wow... yep, geico's mobile app works like a charm. geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. sometimes we use k-y ultragel to enhance my body's natural moisture so i can get into it a bit quicker. and when i know she's into it, i get into it and... feel the difference with k-y ultragel. degree motionsense. the world's first antiperspirant with unique microcapsules activated by movement, that release bursts of freshness all day. motionsense. protection to keep you moving. degree. it won't let you down. enough pressure in here for ya? i'm gonna take mucinex sinus-max. too late, we're about to take off. these dissolve fast.

3:49 am
bernie sanders insist his lop-sided loss to hillary clinton in south carolina will not be repeated. in virginia, battleground trackers shows sanders trailing
3:50 am
in georgia, he is down by 28 points. >> it was a disappointing loss. there's georgia, virginia, texas. when analysts look at that map, they say there's not a plausible path for to you the nomination. what's your response? >> my response is that i'm in minnesota. i think we're going to win in minnesota, colorado, oklahoma, massachusetts and vermont. and i think we have a number of states coming up that we're going to do well, possibly winning in california and new york state. so i think we do have a path to victory. now i won't tell you that we didn't get beaten and beaten very badly yesterday in south carolina. i congratulate secretary clinton on her victory, but for us, that is about as bad as it's going to get. >> when you look at the progress you've made, which surpasses all analysts who would have looked at your campaign from the beginning, even given the
3:51 am
you've made, is there enough time left? isn't time kind of running out? >> well, no, i don't think so. on tuesday we're going to have 800 delegates selected. i think we're going to win a very good share of those. we have major states coming up. and the important point is that people throughout this country are resonating to our message, and the message is that super pacs and a corrupt campaign finance system are destroying american democracy. we're proud that we have received 4 million individual contributions, more than any candidate in american history at this point, and i think, john, people understand that the economy is rigged. they're working longer hours for low wages, all the income and wealth, almost all, is going to the people on top. even in south carolina, as badly as we did, and we did very badly, we won the votes of
3:52 am
the future of the democratic party, the future of this country is involving young people in the political process, getting them to stand up for their rights, dealing with student debt, which i got to tell you is just crushing people all over this country. making public colleges and universities tuition free, those are the ideas we are bringing out, demanding the wealthy and large corporations start paying their fair share of taxes. this is what younger people, working class people want. that is the future of the democratic party. >> but in order to create the kind of movement you've been suggesting and that you want, you're going to need to attract african-american voters, and your economic justice message just didn't siege eem to hit home in south carolina and other places. isn't that kind of a fatal flaw? >> well, no question. let me be very clear. we did really, really badly with older african-american voters.
3:53 am
on the other hand, if you look at the younger people, african-american younger people, and whites, we did much better. so, again, i think our message, the clinton campaign was very strong, remember, this is their fourth campaign in south carolina. two for bill clinton, two for hillary clinton. they had it well organized. they did well and i congratulate them. we came into that state something like 7%, 8% in the poll. it was a tough row for us to hoe. but i want to thank all of our supporters, the members of the south carolina state legislature who stuck with us. >> let me ask -- >> but we are confident in the future. >> our polls show that one bright spot for you is that a big majority think that you are more honest and trustworthy than hillary clinton. what does it say to you, though, that voters three believe that, clinton? >> well, i think people cast their votes for a number of reasons.
3:54 am
polls, you'll probably find that many, many people think that our views are closer to what they believe the future of america should be. our views are closer on economic issues. a lot of those polls come down to demographics, to age, to how much money you are making. look, at the bottom line is we started their is campaign, john, 3% in the polls in the last few weeks we've been in the lead or reasonably close to secretary clinton. in texas, would you have seen 10,000 people out in austin, 8,000 people out in dallas. we had a wonderful turnout in ro-chesser, minnesota last night. i think we have a lot of momentum.

state has an election, it's
3:57 am
winter, but one very special duck just gets under the covers. steve hartman found this hart heartwarming story on the road. a lot of kids go to the park to see ducks, but kylie takes her duck to see the park. snowflake comes here to swim around the pond and then returns when called, because snowflake truly believes that kylie is his mother. and the duck is not alone in this delusion. >> i'm his mom. >> reporter: you're not really his mom. >> yep, i'm his mom. >> reporter: how did you first find out? >> that he was a duck? >> reporter: no, that -- kylie is unbearably cute, and since i never did recover to ask that question again, let he just tell you that kylie first noticed snowflake's attachment the day the browns brought her home last summer. >> look, look, look, he follows her.
3:58 am
reason, the duck imprinted on kylie and just had to be by her side, no matter what the hour. when snowflake refused to stay in the back yard, kylie's parents, ashley and mike, say they had choice but to give him a diaper and make him a house duck. >> he goes everywhere the ducks are allowed and almost everywhere they're not allowed. i don't know if you've had a 2-year-old or 5-year-old that wouldn't leave home without their plan key? she would not leave without her duck. and nothing's negotiable. >> reporter: snowflake goes to the beach in summer, and on the sled in winter. he even went trick or treating as olaf, the snowman from "frozen". and over time, snowflake and kylie have formed a bond like most of us will never know. >> it's special, even at 5 years old, that i know that that's the type of person she's going to be.

4:02 am
massachusetts, john kasich says trump has some explaining to do. >> donald trump refused to disassociate himself and condemn white supremacists. we don't have any room for white supremacists in the united states of america. >> reporter: ted cruz took to twitter. in virginia, marco rubio called trum's position unbelievable. >> we cannot be a party that nominates someone who refuses to condemn white supremacists and the cue ku klux klan. >> the republican party is not treating me right, and they're not treating the people that i represent right. >> reporter: and there's some evidence to support trump's claim. a new battleground poll found that more than half of republicans in three super tuesday states, georgia, texas,
4:03 am
party does not represent them well. the poll also showed voters in those states think trump offers the most optimistic message. trump picked up the endorsement of jeff sessions. >> major garrett, thank you very much. hillary clinton expanded her lead over bernie sanders with a prime air r ir airary victory. >> tuesday primary, thank you. >> reporter: hillary clinton stormed into arkansas and tennessee on sunday, setting her sights on the handful of southern states that vote on super tuesday and trying to capitalize on her momentum with black voters who propelled her landslide victory in south carolina. nearly 90% of african-american voters backed clinton yesterday, breaking the record set by then senator obama in 2008, that spells trouble for bernie
4:04 am
clinton's momentum heading into states where the democratic primary electorate is more diverse. >> we did really, really badly with older african-american voters. i mean, we got decimated. >> reporter: the vermont senator has racked up delegates in iowa, new hampshire and nevada mainly with white, younger voters, but as he goes south, he is visiting states where the demographics play to his favor, like in oklahoma where he campaigned today. >> now i'm going to need your tuesday. i'm going to need your help to [cheers and applause] and i'm going to need, i'm going to need your help to win the general election. clinton meanwhile, is turning her focus away from sanders and pivoting to her next

donald trump, even if like earlier today in a memphis church she's not mentioning his name. >> i said last night america's
4:06 am
get behind one candidate. voters don't seem to be listening to that message. >> when voters hear establishment, they view that as a bad word. they are less likely to any candidate who is too tied to the establishment. >> but they're not just siding with trump because they think he's anti-establishment, they also think he can win in november. >> they also think he's in the best position to win in november.

the announcement was triggered by an independent study that linked lead poisoning in children to the river water. one thing we keep hearing is that the governor is not involved or is detached. this would be good to show that he's there and he cares. and if we don't announce until he's there, we can avoid the protests and still get the optics. the protests have continued. the fallout was eerily predicted in an e-mail sent more than a year ago when the governor's special prongs projects manager wrote, this is a public reasons crisis waiting to explode nationally, friday the government admitted he should have been more directly involved back when his aides first e-mailed about the problem. >> that's where i'm kicking myself every day. i wish i would have asked more questions. i wish i wouldn't have accepted answers.
