8:01 am
>> okay. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. the new hampshire primary is five days away. the republican field is smaller, but the two leaders are turning up the heat on each other. donald trump has said he was happy finishing second in iowa, but just a few hours later, he launched a twitter rant against ted cruz. >> he now claims that cruz stole the caucus vote and committed fraud. trump says that cruz manipulated voters telling them ben carson had dropped out of the race. cruz said that trump is, quote, losing it and said voters are not interested in what he called a trumper tantrum. bernie sanders leading new hampshire polls, hillary clinton is downplaying her chances. clinton who narrowly won in iowa says sanders has an advantage because he is from neighboring vermont. sanders said she won the primary eight years ago. after taking wall street

8:04 am
politics, because the nice thing is that people, you can feel the wave of public interests and what is going on in the election right now. sort of like the story is catching fire. the nice thing about presidential years is everybody in the country cares about the story, everybody pays attention. you don't have to explain your joke to anybody. you can just go to the punch line and it's a great story, because it affects everybody and there is no tragedy. >> no surprise and you got people like donald trump and bernie sanders. >> no, you don't have people like donald trump. trump. there is only donald trump. the only lie donald trump ever told was he is happy being second in iowa. now i don't believe him. everything in retrospect seems true compared to enormity of >> yesterday afternoon he said he would be more statesman-like. 90 minutes later, he was on what ted cruz is calling his twitter tantrum.
8:05 am
will only bomb the -- out of him. >> does he remind you anything of the man from the colbert report? >> yeah. donald trump feels like my old character who the old idea behind the colbert report was truthiness. if you just say it with enough conviction and emotion, it's truer than if it's factually correct and that is great politics because an audience wants to be emotionally moved and trump is great at moving an audience. plus he has $10 billion to back it up. the whole thing with citizens united is that money equals speech. he has a $10 billion dollar mouth. >> or so he says. >> well, i believe him. i believe him. >> but i think charlie is right, it's a gift that keeps on giving for you. i'm curious what you're going to do live after the super bowl. >> me, too! this is live right now, right? we are live right now? >> this is live! >> preview of football. >> there is no eight-second delay.

8:07 am
>> how much of it will be related to the game? >> a lot of it. depending on what people want to talk about. >> yes. >> you said what you learned from show business is to love the bomb. >> yeah. i had a teacher in chicago who said you got to learn to love the bomb, meaning not sort of -- if the show doesn't go well, really, improvisation. if it doesn't go well, you got to not just get the fact it didn't go well, you got to enjoy it and once you can enjoy that it sucked, then nothing can till you. i hope not to learn that again on sunday. >> i know! >> our problem is we have had too much show already. like our jokes about the super bowl were six minutes long at this point. we essentially do a morning show because after midnight, it's technical the next morning. can we have some of your monday morning show in case we go a little long? >> absolutely! >> are you a big super bowl guy? >> are you kidding?

8:11 am
dave was like the human side. we all wanted to throw things off the building. >> i have to get back to the super bowl. do you have a favorite? you're from south carolina, neighboring neighboring north carolina panthers. >> i like cam newton, you know? >> what do you think of cam newton's pants? >> not as good as charlie's pants. >> all right! charlie fills them out nicely! >> he does. have you heard about the new wedge jeans? irks >> oh, no no. >> levis is putting out a new wedge jean. if you don't have a butt, it gives you one. >> you made baller alert, charlie. >> who made that? >> it's a very popular black website for all of the cool black people and charlie rose made baller alert. it says when you're fine, you can wear anything. charlie rose looked the best. sorry, cam, but you tried. >> wow! >> that is big! you got street credit.

8:40 am

8:42 am
in my mind >> all right. >> reporter: well, whether it's the broncos or the panthers who come out on top on sunday, the real winning city will be right here in san francisco. it's proved a remarkable host and this place i'm proud to call home. >> reporter: that is so sweet and sounds like a great way to concede to carolina, john! >> reporter: oh, no, no, no! >> michelle, you did us proud! >> john, you did too! >> all for you! all for you. >> that was a great job. love that. >> if the game is as good as that piece, we are in good shape on sunday. >> there is our carolina man. >> all right. >> charlie, you got a nice house in north carolina? >> very fine place. and you're invited. >> will you be there? let me know so i won't be there alone! you're watching "cbs this morning".
