7:06 am
>> in this country we cannot criminalize political differences. >> reporter: without having seen the mueller report, mr. trump acted if he had nothing to fear, even though the report runs more than 300 pages. democrats, he said, had overplayed their hands and may not recover. >> and this group of major losers, they're on artificial respirators right now. they're getting mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. >> reporter: a recent cbs news poll shows 77% of americans want the special counsel report released. >> no, thank you, mr. attorney general. we do not need your interpretation. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi dismissed attorney general william barr's four-pam sujry as mueller's report as condescending. >> show us the report and we can draw our own conclusions. >> reporter: in michigan mueller wasn't the only topic on the president's mind. >> we have a chance of killing obamacare. we almost did it.

7:09 am
but i don't think it's okay. i think it's immoral, i think it's unethical, i think it's unpatriotic, and, yes, i think it's corrupt. evidenthey believe the deta mueller's report will be bad for the president and going to do everything in their power to get the report released. but there's little members of the minority party can do to oust the chairman of the majority party. schiff has no plans to resign and still enjoys the support of house democrats, including house speaker nancy pelosi. >> and adding to the intrigue on capitol hill, jared kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser was spotted there. what's that about? >> we don't know all of the details but we know he met behind doors with the senate intelligence committee. it's a reminder there are eight different committees, house and senate, investigating the
7:10 am
president, his businesses and russia's interference in our elections. and more than anything, kushner's appearance is a reminder the investigations will continue even after the mueller report's conclusion. that's likely to come florida ka complicate the president's ability to work with democrats on anything else. >> ed, thank you. we wish you a slow news day. >> and we're glad you're not calling people pencil necks, too. president trump said his administration will not cut special olympics funding from next year's budget after days of criticism. >> i have been to the special olympics. i think it's incredible, and i just authorized a funding. i heard about it this morning. i have overridden my people. >> education secretary betsy devos defended the $17.6 million budget cut this week. she told congress that special olympics should be funded through private donations. after the president spoke yesterday, devos said she was grateful. the statement says this, this is funding i have fought for behind the scenes over the last several years.

7:31 am
the "wall street journal" reports crash investigators reached a preliminary conclusion that the suspect flight control feature was activated just before the plane nose dived into the ground. boeing outlined fixes to the system earlier this week. and twitter is considering a new feature that would label offensive tweets by public figures. very interesting. the company says it's exploring ways to give users more context to tweets that actually violate the platform's rules but are deemed newsworthy and in the public interest. the tech giant, however, does draw the line at direct violent threats against individuals. this move is part of twitter's effort to curb hate speech and offensive content. and seven of music's biggest legends will be inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame. it includes janet jackson, def leppard, and stevie nicks. ♪ sings a song

>> how do you exercise? >> and how do you go to the bathroom by going flat. i want to know that. >> maybe you don't. >> okay. moving right along. i am curious. "time" reports on why pope francis who not let his worshippers kiss his rick in a viral video saying he was concerned about spreading germs. some say the pope's behavior reflected his humble approach to the papacy. others noted that he had let more than three dozen people kiss his ring without protest. francis says he's happy to receive the ring kiss in small groups as he did on wednesday where the spread of germs is contained. i just think if i finally get to the line and go to kiss the pope's ring and he pulls back his hand i would be a little hurt. >> a little disappointed. >> i want to kiss the ring. wow air's sudden shutdown stranded thousands of passengers in north america and europe the iceland-based airline is one of at least eight budget airlines in seven months to seese operations. many wild travellers were already at the airport when they learned their airline was no longer flying, yikes.
8:34 am
>> we rushed the airport and now we're trying to figure out how to get home. >> i don't think that they went bankrupt overnight. i believe this had to be a time coming so you knew that it was a possibility when i flew over here a few days ago that you might not be able to take my return trip. >> they put me in a hotel and then the hotel kicked me how the. >> i was boarding my flight and said your connecting flight is cancelled. we're very sorry and i couldn't believe it. >> hopefully i get my money back. i'm hoping at least. i don't really want to waste $700 for nothing. >> i'll say. brian kelly is the founder and ceo of you know him the points guy, a website and media brand that offers advice on air travel. he joins us at the table. hey, ryan. >> thanks for having me. >> we're glad you're here n.january there was an article that said that wow has outwowed itself. $49 from the u.s. to five european cities. you think -- it's what your mom and dad used to say. if it's too good to be true it is. >> yes, unfortunately. wow came into the market several years ago. even $99 fares to europe really
8:35 am
opened up the market for a lot of people. >> and they were doing okay for a long time. >> for a long time. >> how were they doing okay, the introductory rate and then prices go up. >> kind of like how startups are worth billions of dollars and lose money every year. the same with airlines. trying to build critical mass with people trusting the airline. everything is about psychology with airlines, and they were trying to break into a market, take customers away from the main carriers. the problem, is you know, once your credit runs up in the airline business you need a lot of cash to run airlines, so if you don't have, you know, that line of credit, which happened this week, i mean, they started taking the planes away right away. >> the point that the woman made who got stranded and she said they probably knew it was going to happen. why did they let me fly? >> well, you know, everything -- you know, they had a prayer that more funding would come in. it was about to. a u.s. hedge fund was about to invest which would have kept things going. it just at the very last minute didn't and now thousand of people are stranded. >> what do you do? >> the first thing you do. >> i'm now in paris with no way
8:36 am
home. >> so a lot of airlines are offering rescue fares. the problem with the rescue fares is all the flights out of, especially reykjavik are full for the next six days and you have to pay out of your own pocket. the sail no longer. they are not paying for anything. >> can you call your credit card company? >> the very best tip i have is your shed card should be able to assist. several cards give you trip interruption and cancellation insurance. why you buy airfare use a credit card that offers that. some that have no annual feels will cover up to $10,000 so you'll get your ticket price back and it will cover your hotel for five nights so people who book use the right card can buy a new ticket out and rim burst it later on. >> i like the guy who said i showed up for my flight, not the flight but airline was cancelled, and we heard about quite a few cancellations of budget airlines in recent months. >> yeah. >> where do you stand on them going forward? would you buy a budget ticket? >> you know, i -- i would -- you
8:37 am
know, there's none right now -- >> i'm 6'7" so i don't generally fly because i don't fit in the seats. >> for people who are not 6'7"? >> i would but use a credit card that offers protection and if you don't have a credit card that offers protection buy trip insurance because you are takin% a risk. >> not from the airline. >> the airlines offer trip protection and whenever they make it easy to tack on the end, that's not the best policy. get an independent policy backed by an insurer that gives you peace of mind. if you're going cheap, make sure you've got the protection. >> or buy two seats and you can stretch out even if you're 6'7". >> with $99 seats. brian, thank you very much. appreciate it. monarch butterflies may in trouble. ahead, we'll take to you a remote forest in central mexico for one of nature's
