♪[ music ] good morning. it is thursday, april 13th, 2017. welcome to "cbs this morning." president trump flip-flops on russia, china, and nato. a sears of statements in one day, what he said and promised throughout a long campaign. >> we are inside north korea where overnight the country's dictator put on an elaborate display to try to show the world that sanctions aren't working. and ahead of easter sunday we visit a church where the pastor mixes beyonce with the bible to fill the pews. but we begin this morning with today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> we're not getting along with russia at all. we may be at an all-time low as it relates to russia.
it's been building for a long time. >> relations with russia ice over. >> there's a low level between our two countries. the world's two most nuclear powers cannot have this kind of relationship. >> the one thing you can be sure about the russians is they are never up to any good and they're not our friends. the u.s. needs friends and alleys. the united states gets the best allies. >> i said it was obsolete. it's no longer obsolete. more geopolitical trust between china and north korea. >> china is north korea's man ally and trump needs china's help to diffuse the situation. bullets fire and a little girl is almost caught in the cross fire. >> we're lucky she didn't get hurt worse.
comedian charlie murphy died of leukemia. he was best known for his appearances on the dave "chapelle's show." workers got traffic just in the nick of time. >> all that -- >> the cubs are showing off their world series claim. >> i feel like -- >> and all that matters. there's no job that will humble you like the white house press secretary. is there anything else that you've learned so far? >> they prepare as well as possible, you're focused as possible and you see what happens when you're not. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> we have the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you have ever seen and president xi was enjoying it. so what happens is i said we just launched 59 missiles heading to iraq. >> they were heading to syria. >> yes. >> wherever we bombed, the point is this was the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake. >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" is presented by toyota. let's go places.
welcome to "cbs this morning." faille is off so alex wagner is with us. >> good to be here, charlie. president trump is starting new policy positions that reverse some of his most campaign promises. in one day he said the decades-old alliance is no longer obsolete. >> the president spoke to reporters yet by nato's secretary-general. much of the back and forth focused on russia's support for syria. major garrett is at the white house where the change was made very clear. good morning. >> good morning. unlike the secretary of state president trump does not apologize. it is clear mr. trump is reassessing what he can make of the russian relationship. >> i think it's certainly
possible. i think it's probably unlikely. >> president trump sidestepped when asked if russia knew ahead of time if the syrian air force was going to drop nerve gas on civilians. mr. trump left that thorny question on the doorstep of the pentagon. >> i'd like to think they didn't know. they could have. they were there. we'll find out. >> with disagreements over syria, election hack, violence in ukraine and nato hacking, the white house has almost no common ground. >> right now we're not getting along with russia at all. we may be at an all-time low in terms of a relationship with russia. >> that was not what candidate trump thought was meant to be. >> we're going to have a great relationship with putin and russia. >> donald trump wants to, think of it, befriends with them. i was saying to myself, what's wrong with that. >> with russian relations on the
rocks, the president has interest in nato's new-found interest to project faith, something he famously doubted. >> here's the problem with nato. >> i said it was obsolete. it's no longer obsolete. >> and in an interview with "the wall street journal" he said, quote, they're not manipulation hitters. that promised a rally cry. >> i'm going to instruct my treasury secretary to label china a currency manipulator. >> china is a currency manipulator. >> they're like grand chess masters and we're like checker players but bad ones. >> he says the conspicuous reversal plays into china's pursuant on north's long-range possibilities. it is that foreign policy challenge, not syria, not russia, that is dominating
deliberations here, at the treasury department and the pentagon. syria's president calls last week chemical weapons attack a 100% fabrication. bashar al assad told a french news agency his army gave up all of its chemical weapons. russia vetoed a resolution yesterday that would have pushed assad to corporate with investigators. assad will he will only allow an impartial investigation. secretary of state rex tillerson left russia yesterday after a two hour meeting with vladimir putin. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. no cameras or press were allowed in, but we are told that secretary tillerson said the path to better we lasrelations the u.s. should start by recognizing that assad must go.
he argued that moscow should play a lead role in forming a new government to replace him, yet russia rejects the conclusion that bashar al assad carried out last week's sarin gas attack. you said you believed russia was either incompetent or complicit in these chemical weapons attacks. >> we no firm indication to believe there was any russian involvement in this attack. what we do know is that the plan was planned, carried out by the regime forces at the direction of bashar al assad. >> reporter: relations with the u.s. have been on edge because of the u.s. intelligence assessment that russia meddled in the 2016 election to benefit president trump. now, tillerson said the topic came up briefly, but he made clear that sanctions are a possibility if russia does that ever again.
president trump is reportedly considering new sanctions against korea. north korea released statements showing dictator kim jong-un watching drills. president trump indicated he may confront the north without china's help. >> i said the way to make a good trade deal is help us with north korea. otherwise we'll just go it alone, and that will be all right too. but going it alone means with lots of other nations. >> kim jong-un made a rare appearance last night. north korea called the development more powerful than hundreds of nuclear bombs. he witnessed a high-profile spectacle. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. our north korean guides told us we could meet at 5:00 in the morning. we could not bring our cell phones and we could not say where we were going. by the time we got there, the message was clear.
on the ride we saw the north koreans preparing for the military parade and we saw people on either side of our bus. thousands of north koreans have flooded the streets for what appears to be some elaborately staged media event and security is quite tight. security was tight because north korean president kim jong-un showed up. the sea of people made it feel like the entire city was there. they at least appeared to be loving the spectacle as their leader cut the ribbon on what is called the street of the rising sun. it's an economic show of force in the capital. last year our cameras captured the unfinished building. it's now a massive building with additional high-rises some up to 70 stores tall. constructed he said in less than a year. the quality and the demand is unknown.
kim jong-un didn't speak at the event, but he didn't have to. he let the building talking. his message was your sanctions don't work. we will keep building our buildings and our missiles. a new watch dog group suggests the country is preparing to conduct a sixth nuclear test which could coincide with this week's celebration. president trump has sent a navy strike group steaming toward peninsula and warns all options are on the table. >> now president trump and president xi jinping have had one phone call. china appears to be losing its patience. >> ben tracy in north korea. interesting to see that. and, of course, it is one of the biggest concerns certainly for the outgoing a ministration, the obama administration and the trump team is worried about.
>> everyone is wondering how close are they. >> and everyone will be watching pyongyang this weekend to see what happens. dan senor was an adviser to mitt romney and paul ryan. what does it say about donald trump, that he's changed on these very important issues? >> first of all, there's no real world view when it comes to donald trump's foreign policy. whether it was president bush, president obama, you go back to every single president in the area, you can prescribe some predictability. there's not one here. what it seems the administration does is it looks to problems and says we've got to solve them and there's no real fill ossi. i think why there's a bipartisan consensus in the foreign policy, yo have the republicans celebrating and also democrats
who served in the obama administration who are praising what he's doing in syria. the reason he has this consensus is he seems to be taking a very hard line which is perplexing for politics, which is what to do about putin in russia and because he's doing that, a lot of folks are saying, you know, we don't care if he's totally upending what he said before or contradicting himself because he's doing the right thing. >> we're talking west wing whiplash on so many issues. janet yellen, now he respects her, wants to keep her. on china, no longer labeling them a currency manipulator, nato, no, they're no longer obsolete. does this suggest that the moderate wing of the white house, they call them globalist gary comb, goldman sachs, is winning out over to populist, steve bannon? >> i think that's part of the story there. the other part of the story is h.r. mcmaster and general
mattis. both mcmaster and mattis know the syrian conundrum very well. they've both worked in previous stints. they bjork worked on military plans. they had plans on the shelf during the obama administration, so their voice here is very, very important. from what i understand from folks working in the administration right now, president trump is very deferential to their expertise, particularly mattis and mcmaster. again, look at the flip on nato. why nato? nato is a tool. everybody knows putin is terrified of nato. he wants a weak nato. suddenly you view this through the lens of trump wants to take a harder stance toward putin, nato becomes a tool. if he wants to manipulate north korea, it becomes a tool. >> do you think they're in a
different place than president obama. >> right now. you're hearing noise that putin is wondering whether or not sticking by assad is in his interest if the u.s. is going to take a hard line against putin over that issue. suddenly it becomes a liability. assad during the entire obama years was not a liability for putin. now, suddenly it is. now, if trump is anything, he's unpredictable. who knows if he'll stick with this. right now it's becoming a headache for putin. >> let me ask you about other inrigue inside the white house. the "washington post" reporting on steve bannon, the man not long ago who shadowed the president is struggling to keep his job. according to 21 aides of trump spoke with. >> very thorough reporting. >> very thorough reporting. is there a shakeup coming? >> i don't think so. i think bannon has probably been weakened to some degree.
from what i'm hearing, there's so much going on right now. we rattled off all the issues. the world is a mess and they realize there's a big vacuum in it. if they don't fill it, other bad actors will. i think last thing the president wants is massive radical personnel changes. i don't see that happening soon. >> but he cannot like the idea that steve bannon had been portrayed as the genius at the white house. >> no. there's lots o reporting that this made him crazy. he's star of the show. >> dan senor, always good to have you here. thank you. former trump campaign manager paul manafort has been talked to. he lobbied in ukraine when the country was led by pro-russian party. the new report shows manafort received at least $1.2 million in cash payments, something he previously denied. the developments come amid
revelations that the fbi looked into with carter page. nancy cordes is in washington. good morning. >> good morning. they provided enough evidence with a secret monitoring of page starting last july and now page himself is pushing back. >> i have nothing i want to hide. and the more that the truth comes out, the better. >> carter page said he didn't know why fbi investigators would have suspected him of being a foreign agent. >> it's just such a joke it's beyond words. >> but obtaining a fisa warrant to follow a citizen is no joke as james comey explained. >> those applications is as huge as my wrist or thicker. it's a huge pain in neck to get permission. >> the fbi has been aware of page since 2013 when two russian
agents were recorded as trying to pay page, page isn't the only former trump associate fending off questions about russia. former campaign chairman jer paul manafort has repeatedly denied he received cash payments from the ukraine's former backed regime. but the "associated press" reported wednesday it has confirmed two payouts to manafort's consulting firm that matches lines in the ukrainian ledger. the payments total $1.2 million. he said it's totally misleading. >> the government of ukraine said it was a falsified document and the bureau there that is dealing with corruption said they were never investigating. >> early reports about the
so-called black ledger prompted manafort's departure from the trump campaign last august and the white house downplayed his involvement. >> paul manafort who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time. >> registering would put manafort in compliance with a 1938 law that places americans on the list who are serving in the powers. he would follow in the footsteps of another trump member michael flynn who resigned and then signed on with the foreign ledger due to his work. wisconsin scott walker will not release his schedule to the public while the armed suspect who threatened officials is still on the run. joseph jakubowski mailed a 161-page manifesto to president trump. he stole 18 guns from a local store. 11 hours later he said he wanted
the weapons to protect himself and his family. more than 150 officers are involved in the manhunt. surveillance video showing a terrifying moment when a 4-year-old girl narrowly escaped two bullets. when she sat down, two blasts blasted through on either side of her. it narrowly missed her head. fortunately she was only in injured by flying glass. the gunfight followed a fight next door. ahead, how lawyers for the man dragged off the plane are preparing for a possible lawsuit against the carrier. but first it's 7:19. ,,

♪,,,,,,, good morning to our viewers in the west. it's thursday, april 13th, 2017. welcome back to "cbs this morning." our ben tracy is in north korea's capital for a rare look inside that closed off country. the ruling regime held a giant ribbon cutting ceremony overnight to show off pyongyang to reporters. but first, here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> it is clear president trump is reassessing what he can make of the russian relationship. secretary tillerson said better relations with the u.s. should start by recognizing that assad must go. he let the buildings do the talking and the sanctions don't work. look at the flip on nato.
everybody knows putin is terrified of nato. loosening on china on the currency manipulator issue, if china would be helpful on north korea, becomes a tool. these all become tools. surveillance video in arizona shows the terrifying moments when a 4-year-old girl narrowly escaped two stray bullets. united air lines passenger pulled off a plane is filing a lawsuit. >> the ceo says they need to empower the employees u.s. to common sense. russell westbrook was honored for breaking the record of triple doubles in an nba season. >> i think what he has done has been historic in nature. i have one more thing to say -- mvp! i'm i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and alex wagner. president trump is changing course on foreign policy and it
sounds very different from what he promised a as a candidate. the president confirms that the american/russian relationship has grown increasingly tense. one of the main issues of the kremlin's -- is kremlin's continuing support of bashar al assad after last week's attack. >> rex tillerson met for two hours with president vladimir putin yesterday. no cameras or press were allowed. tillerson left moscow without an agreement on syria or telling reporters what they discussed. in a news conference with foreign minister lavrov tillerson said that the two countries have a low level of trust, but talks had been productive and they addressed ways to improve the communications. president trump spoke about russia after white house meeting with nato's secretary-general. >> it would be wonderful as we were discussing just a little while ago if nato and our country could get along with russia. right now we're not getting along with russia at all. we may be at an all time low in terms of relationship with
russia. >> the president also shifted his stance on nato saying quote, i said it was obsolete. it's no longer obsolete. during the campaign the president promised to label china a currency manipulator. it was the third action to protect workers promised in the contract with the american voter. but in an interview with "the wall street journal," mr. trump is backing off that threat against china. he said, quote, they're not currency manipulators. back in january, mr. trump did tell "the wall street journal" he would talk to china first before labelling them manipulators. >> last week, mr. trump offered china a bert trade deal if they rein in the nuclear testing by north korea. a message was sent not to conduct any missile test this weekend or face stronger sanctions and president trump is considering additional sanctions. ben tracy is inside north korea this morning.
he was there when dictator kim jong un made a rare public appearance overnight. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. with talk of more sanctions on north korea, there was something the government here really wanted us to see. so they told us to meet them at 5:00 in the morning, we could not bring cell phones and they wouldn't tell us where we were going. they told us to the center of pyongyang where tens of thousands of people were assembled and then the leader, kim john unshowed up. he cut the ribber on a huge new cluster of high rises as a way to tout that their economy is strong, despite the sanctions. but poverty here is still pervasive and unclear what demand there is for all of these new housing units. meanwhile, new satellite images examined by a north korea watchdog group suggests that the country will conduct a sixth nuclear test which could be timed to coincide with the celebration of north korean founder kim il-sung.
if north korea does go ahead with the test it can try the relationship with china which appears to be losing its patience with north korea's actions. norah? >> all right. very scary stuff. it's interesting to see ben there. rare reporting to be inside north korea. >> absolutely. at this pivotal time. >> and with this anniversary coming up, i mean, you worry about what they might want to signal. >> what they want to do. especially with the young leader who is keen on proving himself on the world. >> equal of his predecessors. >> exactly. of his stature. more than 150 years after the civil war there's a new push across the south to take down confederate monuments. they say they celebrate slavery and secession. the memorials honor the southern heritage. and some have voted to remove the statues. new orleans is about to do the same. jan crawford has the fight over a monument to a famous general.
good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. so this statue of robert e. lee was put up nearly a hundred years ago but here and other cities across the south, these confederate symbols are at the center of the bitter debate as we move forward as a nation. they're relics of a painful past. memorials to a war. generals whose names are etched in history. stone wall jackson. robert e. lee. >> lee must go! >> reporter: but now new battle grounds from charlottesville to new orleans. confederate monuments have been vandalized and some cities have voted to remove them. all part of a public debate over whether these statues memorialize racism. >> the symbolism matters. >> when you say symbolism matters that's a symbol of what? >> in i my personal opinion,
white supremacy and we didn't have it in the middle of our city. >> reporter: council member wes velamy has led the fight to remove the statue of lee. but others argue that the statue symbolizes something else. >> these war memorials exist for one purpose -- to honor the men who fought. it's not to promote a cause of the war. not to glorify war. it's to honor the men who fought. >> reporter: weber points to a virginia law similar to others across the south that blocks cities and towns from removing war memorials. this statue could never be moved, it has to stay here? >> yes. >> forever? >> yes. >> even though many people find this terribly offensive. >> offensive is the -- is a way to stop a conversation about the meaning of the statue. all right? not a way to start the conversation. >> reporter: university of south carolina professor thomas brown studies confederate symbols. >> there are hundreds of these
across the landscape of the south. the controversies over removal of the monuments are partly over, well, who's going to decide exactly what that public space is going to endorse? >> reporter: for years these fights focussed on the confederate flag which has largely disappeared from public places a reflection of changing attitudes. and a position to change runs deep and can turn personal. >> i have been told i should be taken behind the watershed. >> reporter: in charlottesville, there were crude tweets written about him as a young man, but he feels the fight is justified. >> we have seen there's still a lot of issues in regards to race here in this community and the only way to move forward is to deal with them head on. >> reporter: now, while this legal fight continues, city officials here in charlottesville will review a plan next week with recommendations on where to put this 28 foot statue if it's ever allowed to be moved. a problem that other cities
across the south are likely to have to face. norah? >> jan, thank you. it's an important story. it will spark a lot of debate. >> from the flag to statues. >> changing history. our cash and checks are about to become obsolete? the paypal ceo is in our greenroom with how new financial technology can transform the way we a,,

paypal is one of the most popular online payment systems in the world. it has nearly 200 million active users who spent $354 billion on the platform in 2016. paypal is in more than 200 markets, but it faces growing competition from other u.s. companies looking to get into the financial technology market like apple and amazon. dan schulman is ceo and president of paypal. dan, good morning. so great to have you here. >> thank you, norah. great to be here. >> is the future going to be for all of us where cash is irrelevant. we pay through paypal or something? >> there's been a lot of predictions about the demise of cash and they've all been wrong. i don't think you're going to see cash disappear, but i do think there are a couple of
mehta trends that are going on right now that certainly auger for the explosion of digital payments of some form. first of all cash is ding advertising, so you're writing less and less checks, you're paying it more and more electronically, and really the number one reason why you're moving toward digital payments is the explosion of the smartphone. so you've got a smartphone everywhere now, and for consumers in many ways, you have all the power of a bank branch in the palm of your hand. and for retailers, everybody is shopping through their mobile phones, so that's redefining the face of retail, and those two trends are going to create an explosion of digital payments. >> what's interesting to me with what's going on is the explosion of mobile phones. >> absolutely.
it's disrupting one industry after another. and i think, charlie, in the next five years, you ear going to see more change in the financial services industry than you've seen in the to enable to what i call democratize financial services. if you think about it in the financial services industry, there's a saying that's very true there which is it's expensive to be poor. >> yeah. >> and many of the things that we take for granted around the table like cashing a check or just paying a bill or sending money to somebody you love is very time-consuming. you can stand in line for 30 minutes, 45 minutes just to cash a check. and then it can cost you anywhere between 2% and 5% of that check just to get cash back in your hands. >> think about all the remittances of people working in
the united states sending money to people elsewhere. >> it's pa of the gdp. very expensive. they take 8% to 9% of the total amount because of all the middle men in that. so i think technology can cut through that completely. that it should make payments faster, more secure, and importantly less expensive because the typical person that's underserved at financial institutions today, and that's 2 billion people in the world, over $70 million many the u.s. they spend 10% of their it is posal income on unnecessary fees and interest. if we can change that. imagine. >> it would be revolutionary. >> it would be revolutionary. >> you mention the word secure. >> yep. >> we talk every day, every week about hacking. how secure is this fraur? >> i think we should all be concerned. it's one of the pressing issues
of our day. think about it. when you're in the elevator, dams that hold our water, power grid, it's all software-based. the key to protection right now is not necessarily just building firewalls which are like these, you know, higher turrets and deep remotes. >> right. >> it's basically using data and information to spot behavior that is abnormal. so even if you sign in to paypal with your username and password, that is only one of many, many a tributes we look at to define whether it's really you. >> you're confident here. >> we're confident but there are bad guys. the key is data. to norah's point, we have $350
billion-plus come through our network, over 6 billion tractions. we look at every piece of that data and look at it and spot behavior. >> that is a lot of toivt be looking at and more in the future. dan schulman. >> thati didn't know extend moe part of paypal. that's awesome. >> it's exploding. >> quickly moving the storm front there. thank you. a baptist preacher in virginia says jesus and jay z are both important. ahead, the church that is attracting old and young with an upbeat message of faith, and we will remember charlie murphy who built a comedy career bind behind his famous brother eddie. his most famt moments on the "chapelle's show." you're watching "cbs this morning."

as holy week nears an end, many people this morning are looking forward to the holiest day on the christian calendar, easter sunday. more than 77% of americans identify as a christian but less than a third practices regularly. jamgs brown is at a baptist church in virginia where pastors and its members defy those odds. j.b., what's happening? >> hello, charlie. good to hear your voice. as you can tell, i'm in the sanctuary of the baptist church in alexandria, virginia. as you mentioned, this 214-year-old church has absolute no problem with its attendance due in large part to the hiring of the young pastor. since then, the congregation has nearly tripled. it's 6:00 on a saturday night and the baptist church is packed. this is one of four services
that the reverend howard john officiates every weekend. he said the church is strong because it understands it's calling. >> we're taught to by traditional baptists with highlight rahcy for those who want to receive an intellectual and spirtdual worship service can do so in a timely manner. >> this congregation has grown to how much? >> around 2,500 and now we're to 8,000 in four years. >> reporter: it's attracting young people while maintaining the older membership. he believes his age, 44, and his lineage as a fourth generation preacher are keys to his effectiveness. >> i'm raised in the era of hip-hop. i respect hip-hop. i know '90s language. within language i can use analogy and metaphors that address all generations. >> in the worlds of my favorite
poet shawn carter, for those over 45, that's jay z, shawn carter arguing that a couple dollars shut up our holler. >> his style and substance has certainly attracted this 15-year-old. >> that's something i really do like and find great about pastor wesley. >> his most well received sermons mix contemporary topics with biblical language. >> in one sense i'm outraged. >> he wore a hoodie when he addressed the trayvon martin shooting. >> when you're hurt and you're scared, it's hard to hear the voice of god.
>> reporter: in 2016 the subject was beyonce's winning album lemonade. >> i didn't come to preach beyonce. i came to preach bible. and you can't get out of the first book of the bible without being introduced to a brother who's got a phd in lemonade. his name is joseph. >> we knew the preaching was good. at that time we didn't know how good his teaching was. >> they led the committee that hired dr. wesley eight years ago. >> and how many applicants did you get? >> we had 108. >> you had 108 applicants. >> yes. >> but hiring pastor wesley wasn't without challenges. at first he turned down the job, but after realizing he made a mistake, he came to alfred street to personally ask the congregation to reconsider him. >> the pulpit committee had given me a list of questions of things that they thought the congregation was going to ask,
and after getting up in humility and saying i made a mistake, none of those questions were asked. not one. i think that that transparency along with that vulnerability is what attracts people to be part of the church. >> whatever you do, i'll still be strong. >> alfred street and pastor wesley have grown together. in 2015 the church toe nated $1 million to the new african-american museum in washington, d.c. in the last two years it's become the church of choice for the former first family on easter. >> what are you preparing for this easter? >> i welcome the president at all times, but i also want to welcome that homeless man off the street who maybe on easter sunday is looking just for a family of faith to put their arms around. >> so, charlie, with all the multiple services that are being
held here, on the drawing board is a new building, which is a welcome relief to dr. wesley. as a matter of fact, he commented to my producer alvin patrick when he said, you're a young man, you can handle it and pastor wesley joked back, hey, i walkts to be an old man. by the way, alex and norah, on the guest preaching list is one with north carolina roots by the name of charlie rose. >> that's a hit maker right there. what a wonderful story. >> a read from the book of lemonade. who knew. >> when we did our show from the national african-american history museum, i had heard about this church that got a million dollars in contribution. it shows how strong that community is. thank you so much for that ,,,,,
this morning at a homeless encamp good morning, it's 8:55. i'm kenny choi. a fire broke out this morning at a homeless encampment in oakland. it happened about 2 hours ago near 23rd avenue and i-880. it is affecting traffic in that area. gianna will have more on that in just a few minutes. crews say that five tents were destroyed. no people were hurt but a dog died. flames were under control in 15 minutes. bart is going to cut costs. starting weekday service an hour later, reduce fare discounts and a 50-cent surcharge on paper tickets are proposed. the board of directors will discuss the budget later today. and you may soon pay more for water in marin. the water district is proposing a 14% rate increase. they are also considering changing bills to every month
welcome back. let's go straight to 880 right now and show you a live look northbound past the coliseum. there is a fire. the fire is out but we might be still dealing with smoke there causing limited visibility and a lot of cars to take it slower as you work your way through there plus slick surfaces out there this morning so busy northbound 880, 238 to the maze
that's about a 32 minutes of driving past the coliseum. you can take 580 or 13 but looking at the map here, looks like it's very busy, as well. you're probably not the only one trying to find and alternate. use mass transit. that's probably your best bet out the door instead of taking 880, use bart. roberta? >> thanks, g. morning, everybody. our live hi-def doppler radar still picking up plenty of rain showers around our bay area. this with the passage of the front that's now providing snow again in the greater lake tahoe area with a winter weather advisory in effect there. now, that's a cluster of moderate rainfall from berkeley along 13 past oakland into orinda and towards moraga. beautiful view of the golden gate bridge. we have picked up .2" of rain in san francisco. temperatures are in the 50s right now. climbing to the 60s. hey, the rain will taper off this afternoon. partly cloudy friday, full sunshine saturday, rain by easter sunday night. ,,,,,,
