5:03 am
purchase of my rose i'll give you a preview of my hit single "rose," but you got to buy the album. what to you say after that? >> i don't know. it's an honor to work with chuck rose. welcome to the weekend everyone. i'm anthony mason along with dana jacobs. we begin this morning with a major staff shake-up at the white house. reince priebus is out as president trump's chief-of-staff after six months of infighting, chaos and little progress in advancing president trump's legislative agenda. >> priebus will be replaced by general john kelly. it comes less than a day after president trump's push to repeal
5:04 am
obamacare fails in the senate, in which the new white house communications chief anthony scaramucci warned that priebus's days in the administration were numbered. ar ol bar net. >> good morning. president trump has reshuffled his staff once again kicking out long time alley reince priebus with republican national committee alum sean spicer also on his way out soon. homeland security secretary, general john kelly replaces priebus but it remains to be scene if this action will get the white house back on track. returning from delivering a speech on immigration on a rainy friday in washington, president trump confirmed what he had just tweeted, that the white house chief-of-staff reince priebus was out and secretary kelly was in. >> reince is a good man. john kelly will do a fantastic job. general kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far,
5:05 am
respected by everybody. a great, great american. reince priebus a good man. >> reporter: his praise comes after a public power struggle between priebus and anthony scaramucci. earlier this week, scaramucci was quoted in the "the new yorker" calling priebus a paranoid exits frenic. >> this is i think good for the president. >> reporter: priebus the former chairman of the republican national committee has long clashed with washington outsiders within the administration and reportedly blocked scaramucci from joining the white house during the transition, but on cnn friday, priebus had only positive things to say about his exit. >> i will be working on a transition here for a couple of weeks together with general kelly starting on monday morning. this is not like a situation where there's a bunch of ill will feelings. >> reporter: this latest change follows a major blow to president trump's tough campaign promise to repeal and replace
5:06 am
obamacare. >> this is a disappointment. >> reporter: republican senators lisa murkowski, susan collins and john mccain voted down the so-called skinny repeal. the moment when senator mccain placed his thumbs down votes produced gasps in the senate chamber. president trump accused the three republicans and 48 democrats of letting the country down. >> you can't have everything, boy oh, boy. they've been working on that one for seven years, can you believe that? >> reporter: now congress did pass a sanctions bill against russia for its election interference with north korea and iran attached to it and it has enough support to override a presidential veto. after initially sending mixed singles the white house now says, president trump approves of the bill and intends to sign it. anthony? >> thank you. with more on all the turmoil in the trump administration, we're joined by ed o'keefe, he's
5:07 am
a reporter for the "the washington post." go morning. >> good morning. i'm still getting over the rose. >> we all are. i would like a little in my cup here. ed, what's essentially happening here? we've known reince priebus was kind of in trouble here for some time, and we've known that kelly was offered this job a while back. is it likely that kelly will get it with more authority in the west wing do we think? >> you would certainly want to do that especially given the ways things have gone the last few months where priebus didn't have much authority. the problem here is you have a president who likes to tweet, says things unpredictably. there were undoubtedly morning where priebus woke up to find out what the president said like we did and we'll see whether bringing in a military general
5:08 am
managerial experience actually helps. he doesn't know and doesn't have very many strong relationships on capitol hill, he has no experience moving through legislation. this is a guy who is responsible for military operations, which is a very important and notable part of his resume but isn't necessarily going to lend itself well to what is a very tricky political and management role. >> have we gotten any indication as to how he then handles things -- take anthony scaramucci who is new in his role too with big personalities, steve bannon as well? >> so many of these reports have direct reporting lines to the president. normally they'd go through the chief-of-staff then to the president so we wonder and we don't know yet whether there's been some new agreement. i would imagine that if they were attempting to do that we'd hear about it and some people would not be happy about it. we'll see. he starts monday, is expected to bring more military style discipline to the way things work and whether they're all willing to play along remains to
5:09 am
be seen. >> what does this say about the white house's relationship with the republican party, because priebus was the direct connection there. >> i had spoken with lawmakers who had expressed concern that this day would come because priebus is the one that they knew, is the one they could pick up the phone and talk to about political matters, kelly's a less known entity and a little more difficulty for now, especially at a time there's still no health care bill and only begin to talk about tax reform bill. >> you mentioned a couple of things, you look at missile launches, what's going on in russia with just diplomats being sent out. i guess with the white house seeming in such turmoil, can they handle these other things? do we have any indication of how well they can handle these other things while dealing with internal communications? >> it's hard to know. when it comes to responding to the north korea situation, they seem to issue pretty measured response and they're clearly aware of what's going on.
5:10 am
as for responding to it, that's -- that remains to be seen but when it comes to all the other crisis, the government continues to run itself through the professionals that are there, but clearly at the top it's been quite chaotic and i think we're entering now the august recess period where lawmakers go home and they'll hear much more from constituents. usually in the first seven months of a presidency, something significant is accomplished with congress. the only thing this president really has is a new supreme court justice which is a lot like the old if not more conservative and they just passed this week a sanctions bill that he's going to sign but is not very happy about. so there's really not much to show for the first -- >> is health care dead? we had this dramatic vote in the early hours of the morning. his vote obviously decided. >> you remember that seen in the mon ty python and he says not
5:11 am
dead yet, they're going to try again, they're going to try at least with democrats in the senate. there are resistance among certain republicans to make sure this doesn't become too moderate or watered down deal but you couldn't even get a watered down deal out of the senate because of john mccain. it's something they'll keep trying but they're running out of the time on the floor of congress to get things done when they have all these must pass things they got to do come the fall. >> thank you. tomorrow morning on face the nation here on cbs john's guests will include dianne feinstein and senator jeff flake republican of arizona. president trump says he wants to get members of the brutal ms 13 hispanic street gang out of the u.s. mr. trump was in brentwood, new york, on friday, one of the communities ravaged by gang violence. there have been 17 gang related murders on long island since last year. the trump administration blames
5:12 am
the existence of the gang on laxed law enforcement on illegal immigration from central america. mr. trump seemed to endorse rough treatment of criminal suspects. >> please don't be too nice, like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand, like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head. i said you can take the hand away, okay? >> after remarks the police department released a statement saying, quote, as a department, we do not and will not tolerate roughing up prisoners. north korea kim jong-un said this morning his country's latest successful test of intercontinental ballistic missile proves his country can strike the u.s. mainland. the missile was launched friday night from north korea. it comes less than a month after the north conducted its first icbm test.
5:13 am
>> the missile traveled at least 45 minutes at an elevation of more than 2,300 miles before landing in the sea of japan. a pentagon spokesman said the missile did not pose a threat to north america but analysts say the test firing shows a possibility north korean missiles could reach los angeles, chicago or new york. a stern warning for the united states that it would not be safe from destruction if it tries to attack north korea, the u.s. and south korea conducted joint military actions in response. the u.s. will take all necessary steps to secure the security of the american homeland and protect our allies in the region. >> north korea takes on the world, gordon, go morning. >> good morning. are we in range? is that simple? >> we probably are and if we're not we will be in range.
5:14 am
this was a two stage missiles. they've got a three stage missile, the kno 8 which they probably will test pretty soon. we're on a timeline which is accelerated. the north koreans are testing as an unbelievably fast pace. we got to be concerned. >> the other issue seems to be whether or not they have that capability to have a nuclear warhead on these missiles. do we know where they stand with that? >> they have a war head for their low range missile. this high arc that they fired on this is the third test of healed shielding and heat shielding is really the last technical hurdle that they had. they had two successful heat shieldings tests, this one was probably successful as well and again if they don't have it today they'll have it in a few months down the road. president trump has been leaning on china to intervene here. where is china on this right now? >> they've been supporting the north koreans so for instance, this missile that they fired on july 4th and the one yesterday, that was brought to the launch
5:15 am
site by a chinese transporter launcher, a crucial piece of equipment. also there's some indication that north korea's most advance missiles and the one fired yesterday was not the most advanced that the most advanced missiles are derived from chinese versions, so we need to have a conversation with the chinese in public asking them why chinese looking missiles and equipment are in the north korean inventory. we haven't had that conversation yet. >> we heard from president trump after the launch on july 4th and he said that he was considering some pretty severe things regarding north korea in response. does that mean military action, is that possibly what we see next? >> that's down the road. there are a lot of things we can do well before that, so for instance, on june 29th, for money lawnering, big chinese banks have also been money laundering, we haven't gone after them yet. the most important thing for president trump to do is get behind the microphone, tell the chinese, look, you can support north korea, you can do business with the united states, but not
5:16 am
both. if they believe him, then we are well on the world to a solution. >> thank you, we appreciate it. >> millions of americans are on the path of some powerful storms this weekend. the systems are currently heading along the east coast and through the colorado rockies. yesterday a storm in satellite beach on the florida east coast turned deadly. one man was killed, another is recovering after being struck by lightning. to the north, flash flooding was the problem in the washington subperpendiculars. high water seeping into some cars there. for more on the weather story we turn to ed occur rein. >> we're taking a look at rain continuing in the mid-atlantic flash flood watches and warnings have been up as this low continues to bring rain. flash flood watches also out here centered in colorado till sunday morning and down here to the south in the mississippi area i heat advisories are up
5:17 am

5:18 am
medical and legal saga that began shortly after he was born with a rare genetic disease that left him unable to move and breathe on his own. doctors treating him in london said he could not be cured and in march argued in court he should be taken off life support. his parents wanted to take the baby to the u.s. for experimental treatment, but after five months of bitter legal wrangling, u.s. doctors agreed with the london hospital. charlie could not be saved. >> his body, heart and soul may soon be gone but his spirit will live on for eternity. >> reporter: in his short life he received international support from the vatican to the white house. pope francis tweeted, i entrust little charlie to the father and pray for his parents and vice president mike pence offer his condolences. saddened to hear of the passing of charlie gard. the legal fight had continued until the very end.
5:19 am
on thursday his parents were back in court to ask a judge to release the baby from the hospital so he could die at home. on friday, charlie was removed from life support and admitted into hospice care where he died a few hours later, just one week short of his first birthday. for "cbs this morning" saturday, london. >> very sad story. >> just heartbreaking, no parent should have to put their child -- >> no. we want to check in on some of the rest of this morning's headlines. the american statesman of austin, texas reports ford motor company will pay to repair the carbon monoxide leaks found in its interceptor suvs used by the austin police department. in a statement released last night, some police department add radios and other equipment to the suvs and the holes drilled for wiring may not be sealed allowing exhaust fumes to seep in the car. austin police are taking 400 of

5:37 am
most vulnerable face and possible ways to address the disparities in care. here now with more on the report is dr. narula. what does this report seek to address? >> it's trying to address how do we get our kids to reach their fullest potential and a lot of these health disparities have the foundation are rooted in early childhood, those first eight years are critical for setting the stage for what kind of success a child has, what kind of health a child has, how they're learning will develop, so stressors in early life can affect children neurologically, metabolically. we're talking about things like poverty, things like instability in their home life. lack of quality education and that can really create a trajectory for a child so they become at risk or vulnerable and so we know for example, that socio economic status is associated with language development as early as 18 months, that vocabulary in a 3 year will predict how well they read in third grade which will
5:38 am
go on to predict if they graduate from high school, so kids who don't graduate from high school tend to have more chronic diseases like diabetes. all of these things are very important and something that we need to start early with. >> did the report identify ways to sort of address these vulnerable children? >> they talked about trying to pick this up early so we can refer kids early for intervention. and they talked about screening for health disparities, socially as well, they talked about identifying kids who may have hearing issues, developmental issues, motor issues and trying to get them, again, initiated into treatment early on. and then they also talked about this idea that just because you identify that a child is vulnerable doesn't mean they will get into a program because a lot of the programs have strict eligibility criteria. so what we need is more programs like for example, what they reference, a program called help me grow where there's a one information line that parents can call and really help their child get matched with the right
5:39 am
program. >> did the study look at what doctors specifically -- this report is obviously about children but it affects parents as well of course? >> it did. it placed a big role on doctors for early identification in particular they also talked about behavioral issues and mental health. we know in this country about only 20% of kids with behavioral issues are getting help, mental health help and so that needs to be addressed. and then they talked about a two generation approach, basically means we're not just targeting the child, we have to target the parents, we have to look at the whole family. screening and treating for things like maternal depression, teaching parents about self-care for themselves, teaching parenting strategies. if you treat the whole family, you'll do a better job at helping the child down the world. >> our next topic, the ongoing battle against multiple sclerosis. it's debilitating disease that impacts an estimated 400,000 americans. and there's currently no cure. >> the new research at

5:41 am
this study is testing where a dietary intervention can reprogram the immune system to slow down the assault on itself. >> this right here is a very typical looking spot for ms. >> reporter: the other patients enrolled in the trial are following a strict mediterranean style diet, no processed food, dairy or meat but lots of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. >> why did you choose that type of diet? >> we think those are avenue and they're neuro protective. >> reporter: symptoms like fatigue, difficulty watching and cognitive changes can be severe and disables. >> it can take a very heavy toll on patients. >> i was really fearful because i have a family and my children and husband and i felt like as if my life would just be over. >> reporter: with the help of medication, she is still able to work nights as an oncology nurse four years after her diagnosis. >> have a pleasant day. >> reporter: for her sticking to the diet is a small sacrifice for better health.

the president hitting the reset button, let's try something different. i don't think that's a bad thing at all and i think general kelly, given the tools, making sure that he's the chief-of-staff and he's in charge, he's in charge of hiring, firing, everyone reports to general kelly, i think it's a good formula, that's how -- >> that was outgoing white house chief-of-staff reince priebus speaking about the man who will replace him in that job former homeland security general john kelly. the chief-of-staff is unelected and not subject to confirmation but it is one of washington's most powerful positions. >> for his best selling book the
5:48 am
gate keepers, how the white house chief-of-staff define every president, he interviewed all 17 living chiefs and he's joining us this morning. welcome back. >> thanks for having me. >> what went wrong for reince priebus? >> almost everything. arguably the first thing that went wrong is that donald trump did not understand as all of his predecessors eventually find out, you cannot govern without empowering a white house chief-of-staff is first among equals to execute your agenda and to tell you what you don't want to hear. priebus made rookie mistake after rookie mistake and it's a west wing full of enablers and quite frankly priebus was the chief sycophant. you cannot govern affect actively whout a chief-of-staff who will come in and close the door and come in and tell you what don't want to do. >> and general john kelly seems to have the experience to do
5:49 am
that but will he have the power? >> that's the central question and everything depends on the answer to that question. it's -- it's ronald reagan understood something that this president has not figured out and that is that an outsider president needs a consummate insider to get things done on capitol hill. now kelly doesn't really know the hill. generals have not done well in this position, the last one was alexander hague, he lasted a little over a month. gerald ford had a model that he called the spokes of the wheels, senior aids all coming and going p it was a disaster and that's very much like the trump model we're seeing right now. >> presidents tilly have go through multiple chief-of-staff, it seems like there's always a learning process on this? >> this is true. it took jimmy carter two and a
5:50 am
half years to figure out that he needed to give the title of white house chief and the job to hamilton who at that point just de facto chief. it took bill clinton a year and a half to realize that he had to really empower a white house chief to bring discipline to the white house and he found that person in leon panetta who was in my mind belonged with james a. baker the third, problem one of the two best chiefs in history. >> you said panetta really had to be persuaded to take the job. >> takes great story that i tell in the book. panetta was very happy, thank you very much, as omb director and he was -- they basically flew him to camp david and locked him in a cabin. he said i found myself -- i found myself in a cabin with bill and hillary clinton, al gore and tipper gore and knew this wasn't going to be a fair fight. >> in this first maybe week,
5:51 am
month for general kelly going ahead, what are the first things he has to do to have success in this position? >> i'm curious about whether he set any conditions because if he didn't then he's really in trouble and so the trump white house. the first condition in my mind would be based on the history of what is happened to white house chiefs. he's got to be first among equals and everybody needs to report through kelly. if scaramucci continues to report directly to donald trump, this will be disaster. you can't have a loose cannon like scaramucci rolling around on the deck firing shots all over the place and expect to have have a functioning white house. >> thank you. there are some of the rarest and most beautiful creatures around. up next, we'll take you to the asian mountain kingdom for some spectacular new images of bengal

security secretary elaine duke will act as acting secretary. president trump said he's not giving up on trying to overhaul the affordable care act after the senate went down in defeat on friday. mr. trump said health care will be fixed, but not right away. >> boy, oh, boy. they've been working on that one for seven years. can you believe that? the swamp. but we'll get it done. we're going to get it done. you know, i said from the beginning, let obamacare implode and then do it. i turned out to be right. let obamacare implode. >> mr. trump made getting rid of obamacare a major point of his campaign, and while he's not outlined new policies since its defeat in the senate, h has threatened to halt federal payments to insurers to speed up
6:03 am
the implodement of obamacare. >> jamal is in our washington boou. good morning. >> good morning. >> reince priebus was seen as a bridge, a member of the republican party and a bridge to capitol hill for the president. what does that mean for the ledge legislation going forward now that it means he's no longer with the white house? >> i think it's complicated the white house's efforts to get legislation through congress. reince was a link to the rbs on the hill as was sean spicer. it seems that the white house is pushing out people who had those ties to the kind of official republican partying and without them, when you bring in the treatment of attorney general jeff sessions as well, you begin to get the impression that the white house is burning its links and burning its bridges with the republicans on the hill. so president trump obviously has an agenda he wants to get through congress, but when you're letting go the kinds of people who want to make the connections, build the relationships necessary to move
6:04 am
an agenda through congress, when you're getting rid of those people, it becomes difficult to see how one accomplishes that agenda. >> and on that agenda back to health care and the effort to repeal and replace obamacare, i mean is there life left in the republicans' effort to do that at this point? >> it's difficult to say. the thing that we've seen over this entire six-month health care saga is that for as much as the republican party had a slogan over the last several years, rew peel and replace obamacare, there was no real consensus on what that meant in practicing did they want go back to the previous obamacare status quo, keep parts of it and get rid of others and what did they want go through? it's clear from the repeated missteps that there's no consensus here. and so you can kind of imagine republicans making another go at
6:05 am
it, trying to advance another bill, but it's not clear there's a lowest common denominator here that everyone can agree to. so this -- all the health care bills and the various iterations have died and come back to life, good and come back to life. so i'm hesitant to say the effort is dead. but it is increasingly clear that unless republicans are going to sit down and really hash out what they want from health care reform, they're going to run into problems. >> what about the idea of bipartisan support? we heard from schumer and mccain, the idea of working together. that just impossible here? >> i think one of the problems is republicans and democrats have basically fundamentally different goals. i think if republicans came to democrats and said here are the problems with these exchanges, the subsidy changes to insurers, they're a subsidy gap for
6:06 am
consumers such that if you make a little too much money, things are phased out for you. we can fix these problems an make these exchanges more stable. and this would go toward making law more stable in the long run. i think democrats would accept that. the problem is republicans aren't interested in that in the long run. and broadly if they're not interested in the democratic goal, because the goal is just fundamental divides here, i'm not sure there can be the crime of bipartisy partisanship peopl. the parties are on two separate patterns here. >> jamal buoy, thank you very much for being here. >> thank you for having me. north korea's missile test is raising new concerns that they could hit deep into the mainland u.s. the north conducted its second icbm test this month. it traveled 400 miles before coming down in the sea of japan.

>> analysts say it could put los angeles, chicago, and new york within range. north korean dictator kim jong-un described the test as a stern warning to the u.s. in response the united states and south korea conducted joint military exercises. >> a terrifying ordeal for an ohio woman who was attacked by a boa constrictor who attacked her. she called 911 when the boa constrictor wrapped itself around her and it's stuck to her face. >> a what? >> a boa constrictor. >> is that a house or an apartment? >> a house. >> you're outside with a boa constrictor stuck to your face. >> yes. >> they had to kill it to get it off her. she told the 911 dispatcher she had ten other snakes.
6:08 am
>> my jaw has dropped. >> first if i was answering i don't think i would go, how old are you. >> are you crazy? why did you pick up the boa constrictor? >> it's eight after the hour. here's a look at the weather for your weekend. . it's a timely challenge for computer hackers meeting in las vegas, breaking into voting machines similar to those used in last year's presidential election. just ahead, the challenge and what we may learn from it. you a watching "cbs this morning: saturday." i needed something more to help control my type 2 diabetes. my a1c wasn't were it needed to be.
6:09 am
so i liked when my doctor told me that i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's suppose to do, release its own insulin. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. trulicity is not insulin. it should not be the first medicine to treat diabetes, or for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take trulicity if you or a family member has had medullary thyroid cancer, if you've had multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to trulicity. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have a lump or swelling in your neck, severe pain in your stomach, or symptoms such as itching, rash, or trouble breathing.
6:10 am
serious side effects may include pancreatitis, which can be fatal. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin, increases your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite and indigestion. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may make existing kidney problems worse. once-weekly trulicity may help me reach my blood sugar goals. with trulicity, i click to activate what's within me. if you want help improving your a1c and blood sugar, activate your within. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity. one laugh, and hello sensitring a bell? then you have to try always discreet. i didn't think protection this thin could work. but the super absorbent core turns liquid to gel. for incredible protection... snap! so it's out of sight... ...and out of mind. always discreet. for bladder leaks. i've discovered incredible bladder leak underwear

6:13 am
a challenge to try to break into voting machines. is that legal? >> it is actually legal. so they're used to be a challenge against it, according to the dmca, which is a -- it's against intellect alproperty hacking. they found in 2015 that if you do if for a good cause, for research specifically you're allowed to do it. >> these are hackers and want to make them all look bad, not all of them are great guys. so why trust them to do that? sorry for the hackers out there. >> you know, you've goat a bunch -- let's admit it. i've gone there a couple of times and i identify as a nerd. you've got a bunch of in other words trying to do a bunch of cool stuff. >> nernd do cool stuff. >> so there's black hat hackers, whoort hat hackers. you're not sitting in some darkened room trying to hack into a bank. you're basically working for a bank and you're wanting to learn
