there was a memt moment today where the russian president was kept waiting. there he is waiting for the turkish president, about a minute and a half, i'm told, until, finally, the turkish president does, in fact, turn up. >> what is hilarious is the fact presidents plan these things. you're supposed to come out the exact same time so you don't look like the one is more powerful than the other. because if you win. you can tell putin was furious. because the turkish president made him wait. he was so mad, until he saw how big the guy was. i didn't know that guy was a giant. you can tell putin, how dare he make me wait.

7:35 am

7:38 am
almost half of it goes into our water body and definitely it goes to the bay and then to the beaches. >> reporter: and that is essentially like just flushing the toilet into the water? >> yes. >> reporter: in order to get the olympics, rio promised to install eight treatment plants on the polluted rivers entering guanabara bay. it built one. it promised sewage entering the water and is treating just about half. those broken promises may cost avi van ekker an olympic medal. >> she had fears. yesterday evening, she was emotional because she worked so very hard for it. >> reporter: rio olympic officials are calling this sailor's case an isolated incident. the state environmental department here in rio is testing the water quality every day. they say that it's good, even safe enough to swim in, but when
7:39 am
the games began. gayle? >> a little bit of a cliffhanger. >> i did a story this year on an olympian kayaker who was seriously not going because of the water conditions and in the end, she decided she is going to go. but i know it's been a big point of discussion for a lot of folks. >> it seems like same with zika. it's horrible that these athletes even have to weigh these two things, competing, the cream dream of in something called poop olympics. >> listen to this, a shark that can live up to 400 years old. wow. how scientists learn their age by looking deep into their eyes. if you're heading out the door, we get it, it's friday but don't leave us behind. watch us live through the cbs all-access app on your digital device because with we know you don't. want to miss a spectacular nighttime show from the grand canyon.

? new research has found that some greenland sharks may be older than the united states. scientists estimate that the sharks from greenland which live in the north atlantic can possibly live to about 400 years old. charlie d'agata is in london with how this revelation could help scientists learn about aging in us humans. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, spare a thought for a shark that had to to have sex and that happened around the time of the revolutionary war. the scientists knew they were long in the tooth and then they got a closer look. >> wow! >> reporter: they have been lurking in the depths for centuries. looking more like half blind weather-beaten rocks than killer sharks. in the ice cold waters of the arctic in north atlantic, they prey mostly on smaller fish,
7:45 am
the scientists say they determine the ages of the sharks by looking deep into their eyes. the lens is made up of proteins that build up over time, using radio carbon dating they were able to count them out like rings on a tree. they estimated the largest shark was most likely 392 years old, give or take 120 years. dr. david agus said they found one important time stamp. >> they could see carbon initially going to the when nuclear bombs were being tested off greenland and we could see the radiation in the eyes there and we can go deeper and estimate that it's 300 to 400 years when these sharks were actually born. >> reporter: that is before george washington was but a twinkle in his father's eye. in fact, around the same time the actual galileo started staring up at the stars. sure, the clam lived to 507 before scientists killed it,

morning he was just being sarcastic when he said that president obama and hillary clinton founded isis. trump blasted critics with a tweet a few hours ago saying, in part, quote, they don't get sarcasm? over the last two days, trump repeatedly called the president the founder of isis. conservative radio host hugh hewitt gave him a chance to clarify his comments. trump stressed he meant what he said. >> look. i know what you meant. you meant he create the vacuum and lost the isis. he is the most valuable player. i give him that award and her too. >> he is not sympathetic to them and hates them and trying to kill them. >> he is the founder. the way he got out of the iraq that was the founding of isis. >> trump argues that isis exploited the withdrawal of u.s. troops in iraq in 2011. he ignores the fact that president obama didn't set that date. in 2008 then president george w. bush negotiated a deal with iraq
8:03 am
president obama promised voters he would end the iraq war. in trump said in 2008 the u.s. should declare victory and leave. >> donald trump is not the only person on the campaign trail having trouble with facts. colon and trump are keeping fact checking people busy. all of the things you're about to hear are not true. >> hillary clinton wants to essentially abolish the >> we have the most dynamic productive work force in the world. far none. >> she actually said outloud we are going to raise taxes on the middle class. >> the thing that has amazed me is the depth of the trash talking of latinos, saying that all mexicans are rapists and going after latino immigrants. >> the obama-clinton war has

testimony was consistent and i have told the american people. that there were decisions discussed and made to retroactively classify the e-mails. >> joining us is bill adair and a duke professor and joins us from charlie rose country in raleigh, north carolina. good to see you. >> good morning, gayle. put together of untruths. before we get into specifics, how does this season compare to political seasons in the past in terms of factually challenged statements, if you will? >> well, it's been crazy busy for us at politifact. the magnitude of the claims and the magnitude of the falsehoods is remarkable and i think it reflects how the media has changed and so many more ways
8:05 am
filter of the news media and that allows them to say things that often aren't true. >> donald trump says that he was being sarcastic with his latest comment. does that exempt him from the fact or fiction test? >> i'll tell you, we had originally rated his claim pants on fire, which is our lowest rating, the rating we use for falsehoods that are not just false, but ridiculously false. but, you know, it's really remarkable. here is a talking point that has been used for several days now. he doubled-down on it yesterday as you noted in the interview with hugh hewitt and now he claims he was being sarcastic. it's just truly remarkable. i think we need a new rating on our truth meter for this. >> you're talking about the claim that he had that barack obama and hillary clinton founded isis. our john dickerson says it's statements like that that trump
8:06 am
conversation going. is that what he is doing? >> well, i think it is remarkable that he wants to keep the conversation going, particularly when i can't imagine that any communications strategist would say it makes sense. i mean, he is getting fact checkers and other journalists to point out again and again that his statements are false, and it just makes no -- it doesn't make a lot of sense. definitely -- he like baiting everybody. >> but, bill, i mean, is there some point to the notion that the checking system need to be refined at all when somebody says the sky is not blue? i mean, is there a need to fact check that? >> well, we are selective in what we fact check at politifact. we will fact check claims where people wonder and, really, is that true?
8:07 am
it's legitimate -- you know, people hear that and say really, what role did that he play? we looked into it and we found that isis was actually founded in 2004, so four years before barack obama was elected, and those are the kind of things we fact check. it's not like we are social scientists. we are journalists and we are trying to satisfy our readers and viewers' curiosity. >> hillary clinton ino say that hillary clinton is dishonest. how does she stand up against the fact checking and that percentage as well? >> you know, it's interesting. her percentage of false and pants on fire ratings is about the same as other american politicians. i think it's 13%. by contrast, trump is at 55%. but i think what has happened
8:08 am
so the statement with comey that you played earlier, you know, there was one where she repeated something she had said before that the fact checkers had said was false and people remember those big moments. >> bill, good luck keeping up with them the next three months. >> you're going to be busy! >> we are. >> thank you for your time. the gold rush continues for the united states in rio. michael phelps earned gold in the 200-meter individual medley in rio y 16-year olympic career. simone manuel was considered a long shot but she shared gold in the 100-meter freestyle and the first black female swimmer to strike gold in an olympic swimming event. >> 19-year-old gymnast simone biles made her own headline and earned the gold medal in the individual all-around and earned the highest score on vault. there is one vault, even the
8:09 am
with details on the death defying stunt. good morning. >> sorry, guys. we are trying to keep it together out here this morning. it's not as impressive as those gymnasts. their skills pretty much all of them are amazing. but there is one move you were talking about called the vault of death that only a number of athletes have landed. vaulting begins with a sprint. then the launch. followed by fps simone biles may take the occasionally step, but from the start, she is a step ahead of the competition. seven-time olympic medalist shannon miller. >> i think simone, whether she wins five gold medals or what not, i think what makes her so
8:10 am
it's known as the vault of death. it was first landed in 1999. this egyptian gymnast tried it in 2014 and nearly avoided serious injures. in rio, two are expected to attempt it. indian gymnast car is only one of five women to successfully land it. pubata is another. a 41-year-old mom and two-time olympic uzbekistan. they launch themselves into two and a half somersaults forward and ideally landing on her feet. >> it's one of those skills you're either on or you're injured. if you're on or off. >> reporter: tyler watts was a member of the fierce five who won team gold in london.
8:11 am
height off the table. >> reporter: and in vaulting, when even one detail is off, it could mean disaster. >> you have to practice it every day and that could be so tolling on your body and that is where you risk injury. >> reporter: a french gymnast broke his leg last weekend in qualifying. or a gymnast flopped and crashed here. after the horse's height was set too low at the 2000 sydney game bundle of muscle with flip and twist and bend through the air and still stick a landing. >> it just gets better. >> reporter: sunday night's vault final is the first of four individual finals for the women. simone biles will compete in three of those. so at the end of next week, she could have five gold medals. gayle? >> oh, and we hope she gets all five of them! hold on to the umbrella! that is one of those videos you watch, where you go, ow! i don't want to go anything that

8:15 am
tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. my girl cindy bought this fridge from lowe's because of their worry-free 30-day satisfaction guarantee on appliances. that's what i'm talking about cindy. i like your style. now get 20% off appliances $396 or more, at lowe's. good is in every blue diamond almond. good is a catalyst, good is contagious. and once it gets going there is no stopping what you can do. get your good going. blue diamond almonds.
