7:02 am
>> barbara bush is in failing health and will not seek further medical treatment. she will instead focus on comfort care. >> protesters are demanding justice at a starbucks following the arrest two black men. >> they didn't do anything. >> mother nature's blasting the country with deadly storms. packing a punch with heavy snow, high winds and even tornadoes. >> all that -- >> back in the gap, toward the wall, it's out of here. floorants ends it with a walk-off home run. >> country music returned to las vegas for the 2018 academy of country music awards hosted by reba mcentire. >> welcome to the acm awards and it's great to be back. >> on "cbs this morning." >> this year, i'm following some guys who have done such a great job as hosts, luke and dierks. and before that, luke and blake. i guess they finally figured out that it only takes one woman to do the job of two men.
7:03 am
>> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places. >> welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is on assignment so bianna golodryga is with us. you brought a lot of news. former fbi director james comey slams president trump in his first major interview since the president fired him 11 months ago. comey's new memoir details his brief working relationship with the president who suggested yesterday that comey should be in jail. >> in the interview that aired last night, comey claimed mr. trump does not have the moral fitness to be president. and said he might be susceptible to russian blackmail. paula reid is at the white house. paula, good morning. >> good morning. in this interview, the former fbi chief described the first time he met the president and his staff, saying they reminded him of mobsteres that he used to track as a young prosecutor.
7:04 am
and while he says that he does believe mr. trump is intelligent enough to be president, he does not believe that is enough to make you fit to lead. >> i think he's morally unfit to be president. >> reporter: former fbi director james comey took aim at president trump who fired him last may, unleashing a stream of attacks on the president's character. >> a person who sees moral equivalence, who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the american people believe it, that person's not fit to be president of the united states on moral grounds. >> are you thinking president trump's a liar? >> yes. >> reporter: the president tried to get ahead of the interview, tweeting sunday morning that comey was slippery and a slime ball that he hardly even knew. in his most explosive charge, comey said the president could have obstructed justice when he asked him to let go of the investigation into former national security adviser mike flynn. >> he's asking me to drop the criminal investigation of his
7:05 am
now former national security adviser. >> the president says he didn't say that. >> yes, well, what am i going to do? he did. >> was president trump obstructing justice? >> possibly. i mean, it's certainly some evidence of obstruction of justice. >> reporter: comey said his belief that hillary clinton would win the election played a role in how he handled the fbi investigation into her personal e-mail servers. >> as hillary clinton wrote in her book, i shived her. that sounds like i was trying to knife somebody, out to get her. an illustration of our polarization here that you've got the trump camp, which i guess thinks i was trying to save hillary clinton. >> reporter: if you knew that letter would elect donald trump, you'd still send it? >> i would. >> reporter: in their first meeting, comey briefed the president-elect on evidence showing russian interference in the 2016 election. >> president elect trump's first question was to confirm that it had no impact on the election. no one to my recollection asked, so what's coming next from the
7:06 am
russians, how might we stop it, what's the future look like? there was none of that. >> reporter: the former fbi director said he could not rule out the possibility that mr. trump has been compromised by the russians. >> it is stunning. i wish i wasn't saying it. but it's the truth. >> reporter: and comey didn't just attack the president's leadership. he also attacked him personally. his appearance, his marriage, even his ties. it's those kind of very personal attacks that bolstered the president's claim that there are many people in federal law enforcement who are out to get him. john. >> paula, the director comey is sounding the alarm bell now about president trump, but during the campaign, there has been an argument that he had a different standard for the two different candidates. how's he responding to that? >> reporter: certainly. he is saying that hillary clinton would be the inevitable candidate and he wanted to protect the integrity of her pez presidency and that's why he had to have that press conference, something that is really unprecedented, and that's why
7:07 am
he's saying there are new e-mails that have been discovered, even if he didn't know they were significant. at the time having covered this so closely, i never remember him actually raising any red flaggings about, now, president trump, and it did appear that he was very concerned about protecting the reputation and the integrity and appearance of the fbi in the context of the clinton investigation and not so much clinton herself. >> speaking of the integrity of the investigation, does this book get in the way of what special counsel mueller is trying to do? >> i don't think it has much impact on that investigation. because most of the claims that have come out, there's things mueller already knew or things foreshadowed in his congressional testimony. >> okay, paula, thanks. >> any bets on what the president watched last night? >> i don't think -- no, i don't think so. i think his reaction is based in -- you know, it's one thing -- we're talking about the investigation, there's a huge moral claim that james comey is making here. and anybody who wants to defend the president it seems to me is able to say he is morally and ethically fit to serve and he
7:08 am
served by the same standards i use. that's a separate question of whether he tried to obstruct or didn't try to obstruct. there's this question of whether he needs to test for the moral leadership. >> he actually said he had higher than average equipment in his opinion. that's interesting. well, president trump's personal attorney michael cohen is due in court today following fbi raids at his home, his office and a hotel room. another lawyer for the president filed a letter late last night asking a judge to stop the review of material seized from cohen. the president's legal team argued attorney/client privilege is at stake. cohen's business practices have been under investigation for months. adult film star stormy daniels plans to attend today's hearing. some of the seized records relates to cohen's $130,000 payment to daniels so she wouldn't discuss an alleged sexual encounter with mr. trump in 2006. the trump administration is expected to unveil new sanctions against russia today. they would be the administration's third round of sanctions against russia in about a month. they're expected to target
7:09 am
russian companies that supplied equipment to syria. this follows weekend missile strikes by u.s., british and french forces on what the pentagon says were three chemical weapons facilities. seth doane is the only network correspondent inside syria. this morning, he visited the town of douma which was hit by the suspected syrian government attack. >> reporter: good morning from douma, the biggest city in eastern ghouta and a hard-fought battle for syrian forces. we have been invited here today, brought in by the syrian government to show that they are in control of this place. this was a very important significant battle for syrian forces because this is the biggest town in a suburb of damascus and controlling this place means controlling more of the capital city for president assad and his forces. just looking around, you can see what a hard battle this was.
7:10 am
completely destroyed buildings. buildingings where you're missing entire walls. you can see cars that have been on fire. you can see the effects of where artillery shells had hit. unbelievably, we're also seeing many civilians who have stayed here and are trying to pick up the pieces. president assad and his forces, since that missile strike, have gone out of their way apparently to show they are still in control. of course, the russians were vital in -- as an ally in this battle. we saw images from over the weekend of assad meeting with lawmakers, already looking forward to rebuilding his country, saying $400 billion would be needed to rebuild syria's economy. for "cbs this morning," i'm seth doane in douma. >> we are joined now by democratic senator tim kaine of virginia, member of both the
7:11 am
armsed services and foreign relations committee. senator kaine was hillary clinton's running mate in the 2016 elections. good morning. we have 2,000 troops in syria. the president sent a letter to congress yesterday saying he has the constitutional authority to do this. because it's a vital national security and foreign policy interest of the united states but he doesn't need congress' approval, true? >> no, the president's wrong. it's one that i would likely support if he brought it to congress. but we have a president, not a king. and the constitution says it's congress that gets to decollar war, not the president. what the president can do is defend the united states against imminent attack. if it's a matter of going on offense against the sovereign nation of syria, he's got to come to congress. especially since they've laid out that they've known for months about these chemical weapons attacks. >> asking for congress' approval though, you've raised a large qer, is where's the strategy, right? >> it's very important. a military action isn't an end,
7:12 am
it's a means to an end. after raqqah fell, our troops did a great job to battles is. now we're still in syria. what's the goal now? is it to prevent isis from reemerging? is it to topple assad, check iran, check russia, help turkey, what's the strategy? why are we there? that's how you know whether a military action makes sense or not. what the administration hasn't done is come and present to us. you saw the president said we're getting out of syria. and last friday night, we're dropping bombs on syria. we need to have that strategic discussion. >> president obama acted in libya and he acted in syria outside of the authorization of force after the attacks of 9/11. so this is kind of a presidential standard. it's not something -- >> it is true, and we're friends but when he went into libya without a congressional vote, house republicans criticized him and i did too. when he wanted to use missile strikes against syria for using
7:13 am
chemical weapons, i said he needed to come to congress and he did come to congress and he followed the rules on that one, on the foreign relations committee, we voted to allow missile strikes. >> it wasn't his argument about congress in that instance with syria that basically congress is not up to the task, that nobody wants to be out there making a claim and staking their reputations on these actions and therefore the president's got to act and in this case, the strategy is, look, they use chemical weapons. >> john, whether congress is up to the task doesn't change the constitution. i got a kid in the military, you know, why does it require a vote of congress? it's a judgment that if we're going to make our young men and women risk their lives, kill or be killed, it ought to be based on a congressional vote that this is in the national interest. if congress is afraid to have a vote, how dare we order people to go risk the lives and the lives of their colleagues. i mean, that's why you have the vote. the other reason you have a debate and vote is that's what educates the american public about what the stakes are. what's to stop the president from saying i need to bomb iran?
7:14 am
i need to bomb north korea. if he thinks he can do this without congress, then he believes he can do anything -- >> norah mentioned the 2,000 troops there. there was some confusion about how long they would stay there over the weekend. french president macron said he was able to convince president trump to keep the troops there longer. the white house has been walking that back. what are your views on how long troops should be there? >> i think it really begins with the strategic discussion. what are we trying to accomplish? okay, then we will know what the right role for the troops are. the president said he'd be out. then we heard over the weekend that maybe we'll be out in four to six months. but then i heard administration officials walk that back. so i actually don't know what the answer is. but this is the month, april and may, where on the armed services committee we write the bill and there's an opportunity to pin the administration down on this. >> presidenow comey, clinton sa shived her.
7:15 am
how are we supposed to take that revelation? >> i don't think he was trying to effect the outcome of the election. i think he made a blunder by violating the two rules the fbi had with respect to hillary clinton and following the two rules with donald trump. don't talk about impending investigations. don't put controversial material right before the public, right before the election. he did that with respect to hillary clinton. he didn't do it with respect to trump. i think it was more about protecting his own reputation than it was about trying to effect the outcome of the race. >> he said he had to speak out in order to make sure there was integrity for her presidency. is that part of the job? >> no, but if he was going to do that, why wouldn't he have spoken out about the trump investigation? there was a clear double standard, but, look, i believe he was not trying to impact the outcome of the election. i think he was trying to protect his own reputation. >> do you think it did impact the election? >> there were a lot of things that did. i suspect it had some impact. but i walk back into my senate office five days after i
7:16 am
introduced hillary here in new york for her concession speech. and when i crossed the mantle into my office, i realized this job just got much more important than it was before the election. and so i'm focused on things like syria, trying to rein in an executive that wants to wage war, you know, without congress. that's what i focus on. >> senator kaine, thank you. former first lady barbara bush's family says she's receiving only comfort care for her failing health. a family spokesman says the wife of the 41st president and mother of 43rd president has decided to stop further medical treatment. david begnaud is outside the bushes home in houston. >> reporter: we're right outside the gate which leads into the community where the bushes live here in houston. it's quiet this morning and has been for the last 24 hours since we got this notice. we're told there may not be another public update about the health of mrs. bush until she is, quote, heaven bound. barbara bush, the 92-year-old

"usa today" washington bureau chief susan page is writing a biography about mrs. bush that is scheduled to be published next year. >> i started going to houston to interview her for this biography last october and she was not afraid of dying. but she was still living a life. >> reporter: barbara bush is the second woman in history to be both a wife and a mother of a u.s. president. her husband of 73 years, george h.w. bush, has also been battling health problems. in 2016, mrs. bush spoke about her family with norah o'donnell.
7:18 am
>> what do you want the bush legacy to be? >> the children and the grandchildren. they all do something for others. they do public service. they do something for others. >> reporter: in 1990, mrs. bush offered this advice to the graduates of wellesley college. >> at the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. you will regret time not spent with a husband, a child, a friend or a parent. >> reporter: and so this morning by her side is her husband, the former president, as well as her children, neil, marvin and dorothy. george w. bush and jeb bush are not here in houston but we're told they're calling a lot. barbara bush told her college newspaper recently, i'm still old and i'm still in love with the man i married 72 years ago. a family spokesman told us all they do now is hold hands. >> the two are inseparable. they're still beloved in

reports with john goglia. now retired, goglia remains a respected figure in the aviation industry and occasionally testifies as an expert witness on safety issues. >> here's another one. engine fire. >> reporter: we wanted to know what he thought of the 60 unscheduled landings and 46 in-flight emergencies. >> is that common for an airline of this size? >> very, very high. i hate to make comparisons, but we receive that before with airlines that are no longer with us that have experienced a number of accidents and killed a bunch of people. i don't want to repeat that, so i try to push on allegiant to clean up their operation. >> what do those reports say about allegiant? >> just the service difficulty reports say somebody's not paying attention.

>> you're a former of the ntsb. would you fly on an allegiant plane? >> i've encouraged my family, my friends, and myself not to fly on allegiant. >> reporter: we wanted to ask allegiant's ceo maurice gallagher on all of this. what they gave us instead was a message from their vice president of operations. it says in part all of us at allegiant are proud of our strong record. safety is at the forefront of our minds and the core of our operations. >> steve kroft is here. good morning. >> good morning, john. >> i want to pick up on that faa point. you talked to somebody with the faa for the piece. why were you stunned by the lack of information they had? >> because we had given them a huge amount of information going into the interview. they knew what we were going to ask. they knew we were able to identify more than 100 incidents. but they didn't give a response
7:36 am
or gave no indication to recognize anything was out of the ordinary for allegiant. >> not even the ceo maurice gallagher responded to cbs's "60 minutes." what do you make of that? >> i wurnt surprised. they tried to block our access to some really critical information so we could compare their performance and safety with other airlines. i thought they would again -- we gave them bullet points on everything we were going to report, and there was not one they responded to. >> and the number of mechanical failures is startling and yet we should note in recent months the incidents have gone down. what do you attribute it to? >> it's hard to tell. one possible explanation is that they've started going down the exact same month that we started requesting information and documents from them. another is the fact that they brought ten new plants, ten new
7:37 am
airbuses into their fleet and phased out ten of their old mcdonald douglas airport. they still make up 10% of the fleet. >> do you think there might be any chance that the faa or allegiant may pick up the pace now that you're talking about it? >> i think they eat pick up the pace. there may not be any response from the faa, but i would be surprised if we didn't hear from other people in washington. >> perhaps we'll hear if the ceo as well. thank you. starbucks is being accuse of racism over the arrests of two black men at a philadelphia store. >> what did they do? >> they didn't do anything. i saw them the entire time. >> ahead, how an eyewitness who helped bling attention to the incident said she wanted to send a message. and we invite you to our "cbs this morning" podcast. you'll get the news of the day, extended interviews, and podcast

8:01 am
>> brought in by the syrian government to show that they are in control of this place. >> just looking around, you can see what a hard battle this was. >> the president saying he has the constitutional authority to do this. >> this is an illegal military act. it's one that i would likely support if he brought it to congress, but we have a president, not a king. it's quiet this morning and has been for the last 24 hours. we're told there may not be another public update about the health of mrs. bush until she is, quote, heaven bound. ♪ coachella. queen bey becoming the first black woman to headline the coachella music festival. ♪ ♪ got to love bey.
8:02 am
>> queen bey. >> i'm norah o'donnell. gayle is on assignment and will be back tomorrow. in fired fbi director james comey is blasting president trump in a new interview with "usa today" just released this morning. that follows the president's prediction yesterday that comey, quote, will go down as the worst fbi director in history. in an earlier interview that aired last night, comey said he thinks mr. trump is morally unfit to be president but does not think he should be impeached. >> i think impeaching and removing donald trump from office would let the american people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that i believe they are duty bound to do directly. people in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values. and so impeachment in a way would short circuit that. >> comey also said it's possible the russians have compromising information on president trump. in that new interview, published this morning, comey told "usa today" mr. trump was reluctant to criticize russian president
8:03 am
vladimir putin, even in private. >> even in a meet with three people in the oval office, he is arguing that he gave a good answer when he said essentially we are the same kind of killers that putin's thugs are. and that struck me because i can understand why a president might want to. it's important to have a good relationship, even with adversaries. why a president might not want to criticize publicly another leader. but privately, sitting with the person in charge of countering the russia threat in the united states? privately not being willing to do that? that always struck me. >> comey said he never thought he'd suggest a president could be compromised by a foreign power. press secretary sarah sanders is criticizing comey's explanation of why he reopened the hillary clinton e-mail investigation before the election. comey admits he thought clinton was expected to win and he feared she would be an illegitimate president if he didn't act. sanders accused comey of making
8:04 am
decisions based on politics. >> the guy knew exactly what he was doing. he thought hillary clinton would win. and he thought this would give him some cover. he thought he made these decisions based on the political landscape and not on the facts of the case. and when the person that is supposed to lead the highest law enforcement agency in our country starts making decisions based on political environments instead of on what is right and what is wrong, it's a really dangerous position. >> sanders said there was huge bipartisan consensus that comey had lost his credibility and did not deserve to lead the fbi. the white house says the u.s. mission in syria has not changed, and president trump wants u.s. troops to come home quickly. yesterday french president emmanuel macron said he convinced president trump to keep u.s. troops in syria but walked back that claim this morning. over the weekend, the u.s., france and britain launched more than 100 missiles at syria's chemical weapons program. satellite images show the damage to facilities after the air strikes.
8:05 am
but the pentagon acknowledged this isn't the end of syria's chemical weapons program. the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley says the response was not meant to start a wider war. and she warned the u.s. remains, quote, locked and loaded if the syrian regime uses chemical weapons again. california congressman adam schiff is the ranking democrat on the house intelligence committee. good morning. >> morning. >> before we get to james comey, this attack on syria, how do we know the intelligence was right? >> well, i had a chance to speak to the director about syria and what kind of attack it was and i'm confident that we know it was a chemical weapons attack. and that the regime carried it out. so i'm fully confident in that. look, i think the president did a couple things right and one big thing wrong. i think he was right to have strikes on these chemical facilities as a deterrent to bashar al assad to try to re-establish this norm against the use of chemical weapons and he was right to pick targets
8:06 am
that would not risk russian lives and embroil us in a broader war. using sanctions against the russians which they're apparently going to employ is the right approach rather than bombing russian targets. but on the negative side of the led ledger, this should have been brought to congress for a vote. morally justified but probably unconstitutional. >> you said after james comey's decision to reinitiate the investigation into hillary clinton's e-mail, this was a very serious error in judgment. the republicans were using that now. so if he is capable of that kind of a serious error in judgment, why should people listen to him now? >> i've always found him to be very credible. honest. i think he's explaining why he made the decisions he did, as flawed in my judgment as they were. but i never had a reason to question his either his intelligence or his honesty. i think he's giving us what he thought at the time, why he did what he did. i think his recollections of his conversations with the president, which he memorialized, are spot on.
8:07 am
and unfortunately, resonate all too much, particularly when he concludes that this is a president who is morally unfit for the office. >> your committee is investigating russian interference so you know -- you're familiar with what comey has said in the past. what did you learn new from his interview? >> you know, i didn't learn all that much new. probably what struck me the most was his description of the president and those around him like a mob family. that was a new insight. and, frankly, it resonates with what we've seen of the president. i think it makes a lot of sense. and the fact that so many around him are willing to propagate his falsehoods. that is mob kind of behavior. anything in the service of the boss. so that struck me. but in terms of actual facts, i've had a chance to read his memos, hear his testimony, interact with him. i, obviously, was there as part of the gang of eight when we were first learning about what the russians were doing and his interviews seem consistent with that. >> comey said and continues to
8:08 am
say one of his number one goals was to appear unbiased. he says he did not vote for that reason. he didn't like being alone with presidents for that reason. given that, what do you make of some of the criticism that he's receiving now by talking about things like the size of the president's hands and whether his hair is real and whether he goes to a tanning bed? some say that plays into the president's argument that he is in fact, biased? >> i think those kind of observations add color to the book. i don't particularly put a lot of weight in them. i think the real graphament of what he's writing about is the danger the country is in when we can't trust our country to do the right thing or even to say what is factually true. that's a terrible indictment of any president. the fact that he can't say and we can't say that the russians, the foreign nation adversary doesn't have something over the president of the united states. this ought to concern all americans. it's why, you know, i'm so
8:09 am
determined to make sure that mueller can do his work. that the president stay out of his way because the congress and the country need to get answers and make sure the president is acting in our interest, not in his own personal interest. >> something the former fbi director did is he hinted at the possibility that the russians have something that could blackmail president trump. but he offered no evidence based on everything you've seen, what is your take? >> well, i think i'm very much in the position of james comey which is the investigation still has more work to do. one of the issues that concerns me the most, congress is not investigating. and i don't know if bob mueller is investigating, were the russians laundering money through the trump organization? there are a number of credible allegations along these lines. that, to me, would be far more compromising than any salacious video after stormy daniels, how compromising could a salacious video be? >> laundering how? >> laundering it by russians who needed to unload lots of money.
8:10 am
a trump organization that's in trouble financially, can't borrow money from banks. the only bank that seems to lend them money is deutsche bank which had to pay hundreds in millions in fines for laundering russian money. this may be a red line of the president's for a reason but he's not entitled to draw red lines. >> it looks like mueller is looking into all of that. >> we don't know. "the new york times" piece recently said he contemplated firing mueller until he was assured that mueller was not subpoenaing deutsche bank. i'd hope that mueller is subpoenaing deutsche bank. we should be doing that in congress. we should find out and be able to tell the american people, there's no truth to these allegations. or there's all too much truth to these allegations. >> congressman schiff, thanks for joining us here. we appreciate it. country's biggest stars came together in las vegas. more than six months after the deadly music festival shooting. ♪ you made me who i want to be ♪ ♪ you make it easy

[drumming] one time, in new orleans, well, before it was even founded, a french teenager, bienville, scared away a british warship with just a story. and great stories kept coming. like when the military came and built the boats to win the war. [warplane] some are tales told around crowded tables.... [streetcar rumble] and others are performances fit for the stage. stella! cause for three hundred years, great stories have started the same way. one time, in new orleans.

he served as the personal chef to the obama family and senior adviser for nutrition equality during the obama administration. he led first lady's michelle obama's let's move campaign and set forth standards for lunches. >> it persuade walmart to lower the price of its fruits and vegetables and lower the sugar in its drinks. kass rights about small changes and improving our health. we should note you're married to alex wagner. >> that's the real headline. >> it's such a beautiful cookbook. you say eat a little better. what do you mean by that? >> i think we're told there's this perfect diet, the right way to eat, it's very aspirational. the reality is most people don't eat that way. even people who are espousing
8:43 am
these perfect diets that are you toe pick. we need to focus on making progress and things that can have a big impact on their family's health and the environment. if you get too big, go for the stars. most fail and get dees moralized. >> as someone who repeatedly fails, what steps do you take? help me. i'm in the market. >> the first thing people can do is set themselves up for success. right now we buy a bunch of food. we surround it in our homes and when end up making bad choices. you eat what you see. you want to put things on your counter, in your fridge, that you're trying to eat and put the treats on the top shelf. but when you want it, you get it. >> that's what happened with the obamas. when you first met michelle obama, you helped clean out their pantry. >> it makes a huge difference. the kids are running through the
8:44 am
kitchen and instead of yabing for a bag of chips, they're reaching for grabs. >> i can attest john's in the market. he talks about it every morning. >> do you make house calls? >> you talk about kids and the influence we mention thad you had in school systems in the country about making food healthier. t we've seen the trump administration turn it around and say it's costly or the healthier foods are being thrown away. if you could turn around the initial plan you had, what would it be in. >> it's important to know the vast majority of what we did around nutrition and health in schools is still intact. there's still tweak around the edges but the majority of it is there. the fact of the matter is moms and families and parents, that i
8:45 am
want good food for their clevelands. i think the schools need more money, first and foremost. what's concerned is proposals from the gop to roll back snap, the school assistance program, kicking millions of honorable americans after the system. but it's the foundation of a thriving economy and health care system. if we don't, we're going to continue to see costs continue to skyrocket. >> you're a new father. how has that helped change how you see your food and feet your kid. when they're hungry, you just want them to'd something. >> it's been one of the great joys of my laich. it really brings it close to home. you see feeding your kid is going to shape what they like for they're whole lives and if they're getting sweet foods from the outset, that's what they're going to want. getting kids off to the right
8:46 am
start is the most important thing we can do as a society. >> is there a way -- mine are a little bit older than they were. is there a food you can sneak by them that they can tolerate? i remember the days of fries and white bread. >> getting kids involved in planting a garden or deciding what to buy, that opened them up to new things that. is the best strategy. kids like all kiensd of foods even if you make it halfway good. >> i made a tomato sauce last night and i sneak in the carrots and the red pepper and my son who doesn't like vegetables loves it and he eats it all up. the first chapter, grill and eat mer vegetables. i think people are scared how to
8:47 am
cook vegetablings. >> there's nothing that taste as better than a grill. it couldn't be easier. add olive oil and salt and pepper. what i try to do a lot of is focus on the how. the vast majority of americans ar trying to eat better but they're failing and they're failing because we don't actually give strategies to implement this in our daily lives. even falls short and ends up throwing their hands up. not only can we transform our own health. food and agriculture, the number two driver of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. if we can solve some of these fundamental problems into what we're eating, we'll have a huge impact. >> not many people have an impact on the president and first family the way you have. you write the secret service got
8:48 am
used to you running the white house because you had to have dinner on table by 6:30. what was it like? >> first, it's the greatest honor of my life and i think will always be. it was intense, you know, because of all the policy move and "let's move" and the first lady. i felt like a single parent, oh, my gosh, i have to get dinner on the table, i have 30 minutes. the thing that struck me most, no matter where he was or she was, they had dipper as a family unless he was overseas or in california. they had dinner every night and he left everything at the door. >> sam kass, we have to go. it goes on sale tomorrow. ahead, the rock and roll hall of fame. and you can
