republicans over health care. he tweeted, the world is watching. rew e peel and replace. republican jeff blake believes the world no longer conservative. he writes, quote, never has a party so quickly or easily abandoned its core principles as my party did in the course of the 2016 campaign. we ee leveraged from a tranquilized elephant to an incoherent and often untrue mesh of the backs of envelope popular slogans. mr. flake is her. welcome. >> thanks if having me on. >> let me read this. -- like mr. trump's attacks, the vulgar tirade by his communications chief and the collapse of a conservative backed health care legislation soechl what's happened? why is this happening? >> you know, being a conservative doesn't just mean that you adhere to conservative
8:04 am
limits government, economic freedom. it means your conservative in comportment as well. your demeanor. in important policy. a conservative is nothing if it's not sober and measured and that matters in the white house. it matters in congress as well. and i think we've lost that. >> you write unmattered behavior is the opposite of conservatives. >> that's right. during the nixon era he had what was called the madmen theory. he wanted our adversaries to think he was a little off-kilter. that might provide some strategic advantage. but there has to be some underlying strategy beneath that and i don't sense that we have that now. and if you just have, you know, erratic behavior unmoored from principle, that's not a good combinati combination. >> is donald trump a republican? >> yes.
8:05 am
saying his behavior does not match with the principle os the republican party that you carry. >> i do think that he has some -- some things he has done has been conservative. i think he appointed a great supreme court justice. regulatory policy that his hae embraced is conservative. his instincts on tax policy are conservative. but some things are profoundly unconservative. protectionist attitude, trying to get out of multi-national free grade agreements. isolationism. >> we were not the first. >> exactly. we need desperately to play the game of addition, not subtraction, and i think this campaign, the 2016 campaign was all about drilling town on a base and not adding to numbers. >> let's talk about this book. you kept it a secret from your staff while you were writing it. why? >> this was tough to write. you never want to,
8:06 am
particularly in an election year for me or election period -- you never want to upset the apple cart or talk about unpleasant things. so it was difficult to write. i didn't want to be talked out of it though. this is too important. we have a crisis of principle and we need to get back to what conservative really means and i think that's a combination for the future. did keep it quiet until a couple of weeks ago, but now i hope everyone reads it. i hope everyone in the white house. >> to you expect to have president trump in your re-election bid? >> that's up to him. obviously there are only 52 senators. we have a small majority. we've reached the limit of what we can do with our small majority. we have to start reaching across the aisle. the problem that bothers me the most, whether it's for pol

the looming debt deficit, $22 trillion again will be soon aegd a trillion dollar as year in true deficit, you can only do that if parties sit down and share the risk. that's not going to happen when you refer to the other parties as enemies or losers or clowns. you can't sit down together. >> if, in fact, the president had tried to negotiate in terms of infrastructure and then moved to health care, would he have had a better job of fashioning a health care bill than repealing it? >> i do think so. i think we should have started with something else. keep in mind i'm from arizona. it's ground zero for the failure of the exchange. we have people paying skpord tant premiums. 200,000 air zonians will wake up today with no health care. most of them used to have it but it's gone now. it's too high and they can't buy
8:08 am
so we definitely neat reforms there. >> the president has talked about changing the voting rules, changing the filibuster. is that in the process of happening? >> no. that would be a big miss stachlkt we work our best when we work across the aisle. u think with obamacare, many of the problems it has because it was pushed through by one party by the same token we found it difficult as one party to repeal it. so i don't want to lure p back every couple of years from one extreme to the other. the genius of the senate is the saucer that cools the milk as george washington said at one point. those rules are there for a reason. they're good. they force us to work across the aisle. they invite us to work across the aisle, and we're better when they do that. >> your dedication is to that girl i met

one of the top ten nominated animated movies was led by a woman. the u.s. study examines a quality in the film industry. researchers looked at 900 movies and more than 39,000 characters over the past decade to measure the changes in diversity. first on "cbs this morning," professor stacy smith, a coresearchers of the study is with us. pgood morning, professor. it's good to see you. >> good to be here, thank you. >> break this down for snus we look at 100 of the top films, every character who utters one wrd to the protagonist. we'll get a variety of genders. >> you've been doing these studies since 2007. what have you found when you look at those numbers in terms of diversity? >> that's a great kwerquestion,
8:35 am
it clocks in a gender ratio of 2 37b9 males to every one female. we also soo an epidemic of intersectional invisibility. we look at how many films of the top 100 last year are missing different groups. over 45 don't mistle a single female black speaking character on screen. 66 completely devoid. 72 don't feature one talking latina and over 90 completely erase the lgbt group. we don't have a diversity but an inclusion process on screen and behind the scenes. >> what if there were more executives with more diversity in offices in hollywood? >> we've examined that. our federal card study in 2016 sees few women are at the upper echelons of power. what we have is
8:36 am
female directors in the chair with short films and independent features, you see more females on the screen. we need more female directors to be calling the shots behind the camera. >> you see reekse witherspoon directing mievs and bringing women in. >> patty jenkins and wonder woman or kathryn bigelow coming up with "detroit." >> what's inhibits the studios from this this exclusion in. >> there's exclusionary hiring practices. last year 4.9%. 1.2% feature women, we really see that there's exclusion when it comes to who's getting to call the shots.
8:37 am
only three. our findings condemn a pretty condemning exclusion. >> why is that? the question is why are they not hiring if in fact they were hiring? what factors would cause them to do more? more successful films of a certain kind or what? >> absolutely. there's an argument and often they lead to the gender of the character with the lead director. if only 34 films feature a colleague, it gives females fewer opportunitieses out of the top 100 last year. women aren't on the consideration list. we asked 59 executives how many top of mind directors could they think of. the mode was zero. the average was three. people aren't recalling female directors to consider them across the range of these top directing jobs. >> is there also just a shortage of good scripts and opportunities? there'
8:38 am
direction rather than opportunity. >> that's a great question. there are amazing stories to be told and the female prowess. it's the lack of decision-making and green leaning of who says these stories can move through. >> do you think the film's success will make a difference? >> it should but often it doesn't. 900 films, year in and year out. >> even with a film like wonder woman, patty jenkins, making so much money, doesn't it always come down to particulars and sense? >> it should when ha of the box office is women. 49% is women of color. you would think, why are we leaving money on the table.
