>> the league gave the new england patriots quarterback tom brady. >> we are back in deflategate! >> i wasn't thinking oh, my god what have i done? >> if that expression means you're happy, then my wife was thrilled when i forgot her birthday! >> controversy over singer nina simone. >> coming under fire wearing a prosthetic nose and darkened skin. >> the speck that was hanging off ted cruz's lip for a while, people wondering what is that? >> he ran into something he didn't quite expect. suv that was pulling up, a thief ran into it. >> march madness is just getting started. >> that's going to do it. oh! >> and all that matters. >> donald trump is a phony. >> the man who carried the baton for the republicans is not passing it. he is hitting him over the head with it. >> he was begging for my endorsement. i could have said, mitt, drop to your knees, he would have dropped to his knees. he was begging shraj.
7:03 am
huge business success? he doesn't know what he is talking about. no, he isn't and no, he doesn't. >> true, trump has put his name on some terrible investments. for example, four years ago, he endorsed mitt romney for president! announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places! snowe . welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. soledad o'brien is with us. one of the most tumultuous days in republican party history ended with a bitter presidential debate. last night's tone was fiery, insulting, and at one point indecent. front-runner donald trump faced constant attacks from his main rivals and tough questions from the moderators. >> hanging over the debate was a scathing speech from mitt romney, the last gop nominee, who called trump a phony and a fraud. major garrett is outside the fox
7:04 am
covered last night's debate. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the atmosphere was tense and the confrontation was battle lines have never been more sharply drawn. donald trump and his populace movement and a gop establishment personified by mitt romney. stakes high and nomination and future of the republican party and from the beginning the fight was on. >> he referred to my hands of basketball. something else must be small. i guarantee you, there is no problem. i guarantee you. >> reporter: the 11th republican debate started with a lewd response from donald trump to a new low that foreshadowed the brawl to come. >> this little guy has lied so much about my record. >> here we go! here we go! >> so much. >> it's a minor civil case. >> donald, learn not to interrupt. it's not complicated. count to ten, donald, count to ten. >> i have a policy question for
7:05 am
>> let's see if he answers it. >> i will. don't worry about it, marco. don't worry about it, little marco! >> gentlemen! gentlemen! >> reporter: a defensive trump dismissed lawsuits alleged he had conned students to attend his now defunct trump university easement he conned those people like he conned these people in his university. >> reporter: trump hammered full positions. >> let's put up full screen number two. >> rolling out statistic after statistic. >> the rating from the business bureau was a d minus. the last publicly revealed rating. >> my plan for taxes and tax gutting is the best by far of everybody. >> but, mr. trump, mr. trump, your numbers don't add up. >> trump was also pressed to answer a scathing speech earlier in the day by 2012 nominee mitt romney. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as
7:06 am
>> he failed miserably and it was an embarrassment to everybody, including the republican party. >> reporter: rebels marco rubio and ted cruz attacked relentlessly and asked the record for trump's off-the-record meeting with "the new york times." >> if tonight you tell new york city to release the audio they will do it and we can see what your true views are on immigration. >> trump refused. >> i may have discussed something like that with "the new york times" but i would never release off-the-record conversations. >> reporter: the context, trump argued, was his willingness to achieve compromise. >> but i've never seen a successful person who wasn't flexible. >> reporter: cruz and rubio declared that proof that trump's conservative rhetoric won't match his presidential reality. >> donald, please, i know it's hard not to interrupt, but try. >> not what you said. >> breathe. >> lyin' ted. >> when they are done with the
7:07 am
>> i hope we don't see yoga on this stage. >> he is very flexible so you never know. >> even after that comaust exhausting and noisy jousting, they all said they would support the nominee even if that is donald trump. senator john mccain spoke out romney finished his speech yesterday. he called trump's national security positions, quote, uninformed and dangerous. after last night's debate, major garrett asked trump about the gop establishment pylon. >> different to you today to suddenly have romney and mccain coming after you? >> no, i didn't know mccain came after me. he better -- i'm sure -- >> reporter: ed he agreed with what romney did? >> oh, he did? well, that is not nice and he has to be very careful. >> reporter: why? >> i will -- he'll find out. but romney is a failed candidate. he made a fool out of himself. he should have beaten barack
7:08 am
the fact is mitt romney choked as bad as i've ever seen anybody choke other than marco rubio when he was grilled by chris christie, he choked. but i will tell you, mitt romney should have been president. he disappeared. he choked. something went wrong with him and i wasn't happy about it and neither are a lot of other people. >> reporter: does a conversation about trump university help you or hurt you? >> well, it's a small deal and they try and make this such a big deal. they don't talk about the buildings i've built overthe world. >> reporter: they are trying to make it appear something representative of your larger image. >> my larger image is buildings all over the world. we are working on hundreds of deals and doing tremendous work all over the world. big deals, much bigger than that. here is the thing. >> reporter: when you're talking about trump university, you're not talking about other things? >> i agree. they will take one deal or two deals and out of hundreds and hundreds of deals that you do and they will try to make you look bad. trump university, i'll end up winning that in court. as sure as you're standing
7:09 am
i could settle but i'm not a settler. >> john dickerson is in washington, moderator of "face the nation." you have the unleashing of all of these attacks against donald trump. will it, in fact, have a dent in his popularity or simply embolden his supporters deepen their own commitment? >> it's possible that it does both. it's possible it's both a turnout mechanism for all of those people who think or so disappointed with the establishment and it now looks like the establishment is trying to steal their candidate away from them. but it also might focus the mind of some republicans who have been kind of wondering or tuning it out. mitt romney tried to set the stakes for republican voters. >> john, what about the attacks on trump university? he called it a minor civil case but there are 5,000 workers suing him and it was not just a main topic in the debate last night and main part of rubio's attacks but now the main topic of super pac ads.
7:10 am
>> well, it goes at his professionalism and his brand is in the middle of that so it might work a little bit better rather than some of these more childish attacks. it goes at competency and it goes to this thing of sort of saying one thing and doing another. marco rubio's argument this is a template what he will do for the voters but it gets in the weeds pretty quickly so i'm not sure it has a big impact. >> john, there was arguments after argument against trump's candidacy and then at the end of the night all of the folks on the stage said they would support him if, in fact, he were a nominee and seemed to undercut an entire day they were trying to work against that exact point. >> i think that is right and i think it swallows the attack they are making. if they are saying he is going to ruin the country and ruin the republican party, then they sort of stepped back from that if they say, well, but i'll endorse him any way. so it doesn't seem to be that effective. but this is politics. >> how does it look for march
7:11 am
>> well, we are a little bit a ways away. march 15th is the day everybody is focusing on because if the establishment is going to stop donald trump, they are going to have to do it in florida and ohio which vote on those days, winner take all contests. the strategy is a bit of a long shot at the moment is to have rubio win in florida and to have kasich win in ohio. that would deny trump the delegates or start to deny him the delegates to get to cleveland in the convention and then hopefully they would be able to work it out there. but right now, it looks like trump is still in pretty good shape in those two states. >> is there one person behind the scenes running all of these attacks against donald trump? >> no. >> thank you, john. >> multipronged attack in this part of the game. down. >> john speaks with ted cruz this sunday on "face the nation" on cbs. new jersey governor chris christie is defending his endorsement of donald trump. he has come under fire from establishment republicans for
7:12 am
he was mocked on social media for appearing distant during a trump victory speech on tuesday night. well, christie answered his critics yesterday. >> no, i wasn't being held hostage. no, i wasn't sitting up there thinking, oh, my god, what have i done? i was sitting -- standing up there supporting the person who i believe is the best person to beat hillary clinton of the remaining republican candidates and it's why i endorsed him. >> christie dropped out of the republican race last month after a poor showing in new hampshire. apple and its fight with the fbi, google, amazon, microsoft among dozens of companies on thursday that filed friend of the court briefs. they argue the court order to help unlock the san bernardino gunman's iphone threatens product security and consumer privacy. relatives of six attack victims and law enforcement groups filed their own brief opposing apple.
7:13 am
damascus could threaten the partially cease-fire in sea. the week-old truce does not include isis. rebels backed by the united states are making gains against isis and holly williams just visited a town on the front lines in northeast syria. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. no truce here in northeastern syria. where the syrian democratic forces who are backed by the u.s. have just launched a new campaign against isis. algae al jidadi was liberated from syria last week. buildings still standing are donned with isis slogans but now that group is under the control of the syrian democratic forces and arab kurdish alliance backed by the u.s. this was the isis police station, the islamic police station. this commander kabani told us
7:14 am
extremists. but some paid a terrible price for the victory. this woman's son baz was just 20 when he was killed in al jadadi. if needed we will all fight against isis and take revenge on them for the lives of these young martyrs. the syrian democratic forces are a little more than a rag tag army but they have captured territory from isis and the group is now america's most effective partner on the ground in syria. colonel taylor solo told us his fighters have been given a hundred tons of ammunition by the u.s.-led coalition the last six months and he said they have also asked for anti-tank missiles and machine guns. has the u.s. given you any of the weapons that you asked for?
7:15 am
so far, all we have had are promises. one of the reasons the u.s. may be reluctant to give weapons to the syrian democratic forces is that they are accused of coordinating with russia and a longstanding truce with the syrian regime. but they fought courageously against isis and remain america's most important partner inside syria. norah? >> great reporting from inside syria, holly williams. thank you so much. the u.s. navy this morning is reportedly failing a carrier strike group in disputed waters in southeast asia. the "uss john c. stennis" is in the south china sea. they had their smallest increase in military spending in six years. seth doane was a part of that meeting. good morning, seth. >> reporter: good morning. almost 3,000 delegates are gathering here in beijing for the annual meeting of china's
7:16 am
you might imagine, there is a fair share of pageantry so everything is carefully choreographed. in the opaque world of chinese politics, issues raised to the national peoples congress offer a peek at what china's leaders have in store. >> chinese lawmakers will begin their annual session. >> reporter: and it gets plenty of coverage. this is the long line of journalists waiting to get into the press conference. the chinese government leaves very little up to chance ahead of this press conference. we were asked to submit question topic areas, then received this e-mail from the government which said that we should attend the press conference and raise the question about the south china sea. they added, we hope you'll stick to the question and make it precise and short. recent satellite images show military installations on china's man-made islands in disputed waters of the south china sea.
7:17 am
president it had no intention to military ize militarize. last summer we hired a small boat to try to see those small islands firsthand. it almost looks like a city in the middle of the sea. the u.s. has been patrolling the area as tensions have escalated. today, despite hundreds of journalists gathered, we had little doubt they would call on us. china had pledged not to militarize its islands in the south china sea, so why has china deployed surface-to-air missile batteries and why is it constructing military-grade airfields on those islands? [ speaking in foreign language ] >> reporter: take a look at the planes and vessels coming in and out of the south china sea, they are mostly americans, this parliament spokeswoman says. the u.s. deployed our navy to the region. isn't that militarization? china is just pointing its finger right back at america.
7:18 am
able to ask questions at that level of government. we went to four separate meetings ahead of today's press conference just to be able to ask that question. soledad? >> seth doane in beijing, thank you. president obama has given us a hint of his family's plan once the next president's take office. his oldest daughter malia will head to college in the fall high school and the president said this is a main factor of deciding what to do next year. >> we have to stay in d.c. a couple of years because sasha, transferring something in the middle of high school is tough. >> president obama is in rare company. the last president to stay in washington after finishing his term was woodrow wilson back in 1921. >> it would be very hard to move sasha in the midst of high school. hard for anybody.
7:19 am
navigate the waters of washington, having two presidents in the same city. >> oh, yeah. >> really interesting indeed. >> a father doing what is best for his daughter. >> indeed. an actor will portray a black singer in upcoming movie and why they call the casting choice insulting and sacrilegious >> good morning. on this friday. starting with sunshine across central florida after early morning rain as predict, it is out of here. mix of sun and clouds this morning. 61 from the downtown advantageage point, the amway center. warming in spots, 60's, 50's in marion county, 54. we get up to 79 by 4:00. announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota.

7:38 am
>> reporter: but are you saying there is no risk or do you acknowledge that there is still a risk? >> every time a tourist or an immigrant or a refuge shows up in another country, there's a security risk, and i am more than comfortable that doing what we have done, accepting in 25,000 syrian refuges, does right by both the safety of canadians and by the values that define us as a nation. >> reporter: would you be just as comfortable if there was a terrorist attack carried out by someone who came through as a refuge? >> ultimately, being open and respectful towards each other is much more powerful as a way to defuse hatred and anger, than, you know, layering on, you know,

7:44 am
chip reid has respond. we sat down with two major donors who are demanding accountability. >> reporter: with two sons serving in iraq, raising money for wounded warrior project was more than a cause for fred and diane caine kane, it was a calling. since 2009 the two's charity tee off for a cause raised money for the wounded warrior project through golf tournaments in carolina. they honored fred kane with an award for being a vip donor. that is a big deal. >> yes. >> reporter: you were proud of that? >> i was very proud of it. >> reporter: but learning that only half of donations came to help wounded vets came as a blow. >> then hearing there was this waste of money in donor dollars that should have been going to the service men and women that
7:45 am
their having a good time. it's a real disappointment. >> reporter:out rage outrage j ged outraged, kane cancelled this year's golf tournament and thought steven nardizzi should be firped ed. >> i said where is this guy? they told us he really needs to not be involved. you lead from the front, good or bad. i said, you don't hide. i don't understand how an organization that has many veterans who value, honor, and service and the chain of command can be led by a guy like that. >> reporter: cbs news be has learned kane is one of several major donors who are ending their support. should the board of directors have been keeping a closer watch? >> well, absolutely. i don't think there is any doubt. >> reporter: sources with direct knowledge of the charity's operations said the board signs
7:46 am
major spending, including expensive staff retreats. those sources also told us the board has spent donor dollars on its own meetings at five-star hotels, including the beverly wilshire hotel in los angeles. and when they question spending decisions and executive salaries their concerns were ignored. we tried to speak with each board member in person, but they declined. >> i believe that these will be a forensic audit, not just some whitewash call-in, somebody we are paying and have them kind of put a rubber stamp on it. >> reporter: are you done with wounded warrior project? >> yes, except for my new mission of trying to see change there. >> reporter: the board says it's ordered a review by independent auditors and that it would be inappropriate to answer questions until all of the facts are known. full disclosure? a cbs news corporate executive serves on that board. the board won't tell us if its review will be made public or
7:47 am
under review as well. the board has also hired legal counsel. >> chip, thank you. i think it's incredibly important that that review be transparent and made public. >> doesn't sound like it necessarily will be, though. how do they not have a full-time cfo for an organization of that size? it seems very odd. >> i know the wounded warrior projects have done a lot of good things for our veterans. i've done stories over the years but this is a time when they should tighten the screws how they spend the money. out earth's >> good morning. on this friday. we finally made it. look at the beautiful view in daytona beach, bike week kicks off today. we are good and dry. the rain from this morning, over with. 59 in daytona beach. 61 in orlando. cooler in ocala, 54.

8:01 am
stakes are high. the nominates of the presidency and the future of the republican party. and from the beginning, the fight was on. >> hold on, senator! >> i'm talking! >> hold on! >> i see hillary clinton in -- >> hold on! hold on! hold on! >> at the end of the night all of the folks on the stage said they would support him if he were the nominee. >> i think it swallows the attack they are making! >> there is no truce here in northeastern syrian. the syrian democratic forces have just launched a new campaign. >> almost 3,000 delegates are gathering here in beijing. so everything is carefully choreographed. >> the charity's ceo steven nardizzi has yet to comment publicly on the charges he has seen overexcessive spending at wounded warrior project. >> the film nina opens next month. zoe saldana and the production company are under fire since she was cast. >> monday, charlie will join us from cuba from his weekend with diplo.

8:03 am
>> within one day, you reversed -- on the syrian refuges. >> you're right. let me explain. the first time the question had been put to me was early on and my campaign had just started. i was very much like, okay. by the time i went back and studied it and they were talking about bringing thousands and thousands, i changed my tune. so i'm a very, very big supporter of the second amendment. >> in 2000 you wrote in your book i generally oppose gun control but support the ban on assault weapons. >> i do not support the ban on assault. in terms of immigration and almost anything else, there always has to be some, you know, tug and pull and deal. you have to be able to have some flexibility, some negotiation. i may have discussed something like that with "the new york times" but i would never release off-the-record conversations. i don't think it's fair, frankly, to do that to anybody. >> how flexible are you on this issue? >> not very flexible.
8:04 am
this day, argues that more visas for highly skilled workers would, quote, decimate american workers. however, at the cnbc debate you spoke enthusiastically in favor much these visas. which is it? >> i'm changing. i'm changing. we need highly skilled people in this country. >> you are abandoning the position on your website? >> i'm changing it and -- the position because we have to have talented people in this country. >> you're not releasing the discussion with "the new york times" behind closed doors? >> that is correct. >> which have some asking on your immigration policies you're really just playing to people's fantasy. >> no, i'm not. >> which a tactic you praised in your book "or the art of the deal." >> i'm not. >> after the debate trump said it was not the one he was asked about last night. before the debate, the last two gop nominees denounced this year's front-runner. mitt romney said trump is a phony and a fraud. and, in a statement, senator
8:05 am
dangerous. major garrett asked trump about those attacks. >> reporter: still different for you today to do romney and mccain coming after you suddenly? >> i never knew mccain came after me. >> reporter: he said he agreed with what romney did? >> he did? that is not nice and he has to be very careful. >> reporter: why? >> i will -- he'll find out. >> with us is rick davis, political contributor for our digital network cbsn and campaign's political campaign manager in 2008. we asked john dickerson the same we. . last night a full assault on donald trump from mitt romney and john mccain and others. at the end of the debate last night, they all said they support the nominee. if trump is the nominee, he is our guy. >> talk about letting the air out of the tire. big day and very vicious attacks. on the former nominee which almost never happens.
8:06 am
campaigns after they have been the nominee especially if they have lost. it was extraordinary. the debate, attack, attack, attack on trump. he was on defense all night. then the key moment where they said are you prepared to support donald trump if he is the nominee? everyone cavaliered and said, oh, yeah, sure. what is the problem? >> you know politics. has trump wrapped this up already? >> yeah, it's wrapped up. last night, someone needed to land a knockout punch and it didn't even look like they came to box. >> chris christie has said that the real risks, if you alienate the voters and tell them your choice is just wrong, isn't that why at the ends of the night they wrap it up and say we support what the voters do? >> i think you got to start with the real risk is nominating donald trump, right? because he is the least likely person to win this election but we have seen throughout the course of all of this election voters don't care about elect ability and want to throw a brick at a glass wall in washington. i think there is something to that. and i think that is what the
8:07 am
party has to start getting used to the idea that donald trump is going to be their nominee. >> you talked about a knockout punch. in the past, if a candidate said i'm changing my position, i'm softening my position that usually would have been enough. >> yeah, but donald trump, his entire candidacy is not based on idealology or issue position. everybody on the stage was basically the establishment and people coming after donald trump and they gave him nine months to solidify his base. he has the most intense supporters in this entire election. when you look at the numbers, his people aren't going anywhere. >> does your party deserve this candidate? >> i think it's exactly what we created. when you spend years, you know, saying that the institutions that you have built, the republican party, the congress, the white house are all corrupt and even within your own party when you throw people under the bus constantly, what do you think the voters are going to get the message on? >> i want to show you this.
8:08 am
repeatedly last night was about his elect ability and his ability to defeat hillary clinton. he claimed multiple times the polls show he would beat hillary clinton. if you take a look at real clear politics average, in fact, he is the only one on that stage who would not defeat hillary clinton if the election were held today. >> yeah. he is the least likely candidate to do well and i think that is the panic that the establishment has is that we could actually drop an election that is in a very good year for republicans, a third term of barack obama is not an attractive concept. and she has taken that as part of her campaign. >> just to be clear. donald trump said that is one poll. this is the ae, right? when you look at the exit polls from these primaries, it's maybe 12, 15% of the voters think elect ability is the number one issue. >> what is interesting about this it seems from john mccain and from mitt romney and other republicans, they just don't think he is qualified to be president. they seem to be saying we genuinely worry about the future of the country if donald trump
8:09 am
>> i think their concerns are well-founded and concerns are legitimate. they come at this with an open mind. they know politics didn't bean bagging and you don't get the candidate you want. this candidate particularly raises concerns about whether or not he could really administrator the nation. >> secondly, will he destroy the party? >> i think the party is in the process how to do that to themselves, right? i wonted i wouldn't blame donald trump. they let him grow. ted cruz stood next to donald trump for nine debates and never attacked him one single time. now he is complaining that, you know, he doesn't get enough time to beat him up. >> as norah said, you have nobody to blame but yourself. >> i didn't say that. no, i didn't say that. >> not me! >> no, i said is this the candidate that the party deserved? i asked the question. yeah. okay. rick davis, thank you. >> my pleasure. the boston marathon bombing claims part of a ballroom dancer's leg but three years later, she is about to run the

ago watching runners as they crossed the finish line. adrian would not be able to walk away. can i ask you about that day. >> yes. >> reporter: on april 15th? where were you when the blast occurred? >> so i had taken a right on to boylston street and the finish line was behind me, and i heard a loud blast behind me, and i buried my head and put my fingers in my ears and knew -- i still, to this day, don't know how i knew, but i knew that it was a terrorist attack and knew another one was going to hit. and the next thing i knew, i was on the ground. and i thought, well, i don't have any experience in this, but there is no way you can live through something like this. >> reporter: after her lower leg was amputated, adrian began a long and difficult recovery. >> i feel like i could stay as positive as possible, but it doesn't mean that the outside world isn't going to hurt me. >> reporter: painful as it was,
8:18 am
whole thing. >> uh-huh. scary looking? >> not at all. >> i was that have gone it was as raw as it was and i captured those raw moments. ow! i wanted to be as emotionally honest as possible. >> there is your foot. >> oh! >> reporter: what was it like to stand on your own for the first time? >> gosh. that moment was amazing. >> so stand up for me. >> i remember standing up and just, as anyone would, you adjust your shirt at the bottom and i had both hands where you could see the emotion build up and i put my hands in front of my face and i lost it! >> reporter: adrian's difficult days, mixed with milestones. >> reporter: the professional dancer made her way back on stage, but with success came hardship. it affected your marriage? >> it did, yeah. it did. but that's -- yeah.
