the sri lankan government believes two domestic islamist groups were response imfor the blast. it is admitted that security services here have received foreign intelligence warnings that terrorists might attack churches, but the prime minister and the cabinet weren't told due to a political power struggle with sri lanka's president. today the country is in mourning and shopkeepers closed their stores and hung white banners as a mark of respect. with sri lanka's history of interreligious violence shariq told us it is ongoing. >> it is not going to end. >> reporter: what do you mean by that? >> we are at the moment we are in a mad crisis. >> we saw it ourselves yesterday. when a mom battled police near one of the churches trying to get their hands on a man they summarily decided was a

tst a minute. remely to talk to you about something that's extremely important. you are a former lawyer. wi the supreme court decided if it will decide if the civil rights act of 1964 garch teas protections in workplace discrimination to gay and transgender people. tos will be a big deal. should it be legal to fire someone if they are gay or transgender. isthe question before the court is of statutory construction in tha than interpretation. exualhave held sex in that context includes sexual orientation and gender identity. that's why we have a supreme court. this is one of the things that thutinely triggers the supreme court to grant with you. it reviews a small segment and concluded this one needed review because lower courts decided it differently. >> got it. it be nee question i asked you, should it be legal to fire someone who ould have transgender? >> i think most americans would have a hard time with an
simoyer deciding to fire someone simply on the basis of their sexual orientation. for that reason, most states, onarly every state has some type of prohibition against that. >> you think the supreme court -- the trump administration is saying ofentially yes, legally, that title vii of the civil rights act should not include protection for gay or transgender people. >> the argument that they're leking is that the language in title vii of the civil rights theof 1964 doesn't extend that n't. at the time, they didn't have this in mind, the fact they didn't have it in mind doesn't close the question as to whether ac the language they actually use is sufficiently broad to cover this. >> should congress tighten that up? call >> i suppose congress will be called upon to tighten up the language, depending on how the supreme court decides this case. one can imagine a number of erfferent versions of that legislation, some of which could
garner support. others wouldn't. >> there are intense discussions right now within the democratic wety to impeach or not impeach. you're on record saying no, we should not impeach because -- other than the fact that you're republican, why do you say no to impeachment. >> impeachment power is one that ery often instinctively feel to theimpeaching party like the theaching party is gaining something, gaining something at the expense of the executive branch. pposite ways history has taught in the opposite can be true. in the absence of something that is truly unacceptable where you body to get rid of somebody and when you ckly. unwi you impeach, you often end up unwittingly strengthening the executive branch and strengthening the executive in office at the time. ex some of that october kufrd with president clinton about two decades ago. believe some of that would be icee this time around, if the democrats made the unfortunate ink th to initiate impeachment
proceedings here. >> do you think the mueller so.rt will hurt republicans in 2020? >> i don't think so. a recent poll i became aware of yesterday, i think done by russ dministr, that most american's pinions of this president, the trump administration has not changed and is unlikely to change as a result -- > we don't generally use thatssen in our polling. repoe is a new polling out from lowtico that after the mueller nce it, his approval rating is thelow as it was following the violence in charlottesville. t has hurt his approval rating. t some of the reports him.unding it might have a short-term impact on how they feel about him. but they're not expected to change how they view the big picture. >> it didn't alarm you at all by reading the mueller report. exame were so many, but let's take one for example, that the president's efforts to influence most he investigation were mostly unsuccessful.
dat is largely because the persons surrounding the president decided not to carry out the orders or accede his request. particularly white house .ounsel, don mcgahn. u have a any time you have a president, nded byesident is going to be he wasded by staff. in this case he was surrounded by very good staff. from time to time public of fivls, president of the united states or otherwise, will have ideas that on further reflection tare not good ideas. these ideas were not good ideas. ndaff worked appropriately to walk him off the ledge. we're dealing with things that never fully culminated to doing the sorts of things that could >>ve been more troubling. >> let me ask you about your book. you've worked hard to keep the founders in the conversation, espect ofndard that they created. here with respect to the declaration, summer of 1787, ndat do you think about the mueller report and the 55 men who met that summer in does t philadelphia. does the behavior of the meet thet in the mueller report meet the standard those men
presifor in the presidency of the united states? m i'll tell you what i think doesn't meet the standard of what the founders had in mind when they set up our system of government. it doesn't meet the standard of keeping power sufficiently divided and accountable to the people. that's why i wrote this book. i point out that things like the boston tea party occurred as a result of a large distant, heavily bureaucratic government making decisions for people that ended up harming poor and middle class people. ownizens ended up taking matters into their own hands because their government had become oppressive. theyink what would be most stunning to the founders, if they looked at our system of government today, they would see this creeping administrative stat state, deep state as some have alled it, that deep state is not accountable to the people who vote presidents into office. lot understand. but they thought a lot about the , thedent. that's why they made general didn'gton the president of the becauseon.
patrick henry didn't even go the use he was so worried about the presidency. back to the question, do you think the current president meets the standard for the ,ffice they created in that summer, they created this mazing new thing. does the sitting president meet the standard they had hoped for residentoffice? ng i think president trump has mone a lot of things to help put ine the kind of system of government that was put in place by our founding generation. he has reigned in the federal bureaucra oesn'tcracy, making the federal government more responsive to the citizens, to make it more e is ad, so it doesn't have so much discretion to do bad things. that doesn't mean he's an angel. the founding fathers would find ange's not the case. nou don't put someone into power to make them a king. that was the very system we had rebelled against when we drafted the declaration of independence. the fact that there are things e the mueller report, maybe unflattering at times, shouldn't surprise us. presin find unflattering things with regard to every president
declaratistory. the reason the declaration is so important and the reason i've chosen to write a book about it, is to reveal the more things change, the more they stay the same. mistakesave people who make ou want tin office. if you want to teach your son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter about american history, let them know more fort america's founding and the principles behind the declaration of independence, it would make a great book for sother's day, father's day. >> graduation week. >> thomas jefferson worked very hard

harry and meghan markle. it's unlikely the new addition to the royal family will ever rule the uk, but he or she will be seventh in line to the throne. we've got more on this story. good morning. any news? >> not yet. it has to be said that for centuries royal births have been the source of palace and international intrigue. so when harry and meghan decided to ditch with decades of tradition, it did raise a few eyebrows, but it should be said that this isn't the first time that we've seen traditions defied ahead of a royal birth. >> reporter: at 93 years young, queen elizabeth the second, the longest serving monarch in british history celebrated her birthday in style on sunday, topped off with a 41-gun salute. princess elizabeth, as she was known when she was born back in
1926 was part of the push to end an awkward, ancient royal birthing protocol. her own home birth had to be witnessed by a government miniter for fears any potential heir to the throne could be swapped out for an imposter. >> the first picture of his royal highness prince charles. >> reporter: firstborn son was born by cesarean at buckingham pala palace. sisters and brothers worn there, too. their children would usher in hospital births, prince william, the first direct hair to the british throne to be born in a medical ward, introduced to the world on the hospital's front steps. >> actually diana found it very stressful. then they drove away and the car went around the corner and she burst into tears. >> reporter: two years later she faced photographers again after the birth of prince harry. a couple of decades later, prince william and kate, the
duchess of cambridge introduced their first child george on the very same steps. now the rules of succession have changed, allowing princess charlotte, the next child, to maintain her position ahead of her younger brother, prince louis born a few years later. harry and meghan are choosing to have a much more private birth closer to their home in windsor where they married last year. the first we'll see of their little ones won't be hours, but more likely days after their arrival. >> it's sad for royal followers, because we all want to enjoy this baby with them. i think everybody completely understands their decision. >> reporter: one tradition harry and meghan are keeping is we can expect to see the royal easel placed outside the gates of buckingham palace announcing the birth of their firstborn, but something else that might happen more in like with our modern times is we can also expect a
simultaneous instagram post as well. gayle. >> you're right. i know it's their decision. i hope they don't make us wait too long. there was news from the uk. it was announced that president trump has accepted an invitation from the queen for a state visit in june. what do you think we should expect from that? >> reporter: that's right. president trump announced he's accepted this invitation from the queen for a state visit. it should be said that he was first invited by the prime minister theresa may shortly after he was elected in 2016 for a state visit. he did come here last year, and i think his visit last year which was described as a working visit is going to be pretty reflective of what he can expect this time around which is prote protests, in fact, tens of thousands of people took to the streets to protest his visit and he can expect the same. >> lot of news coming from across the pond. thank you. ahead, how the traditional white house easter egg roll

drugs. >> he got a hug when the president signed the bill into law. he ran up and down the lawn. he is able to run because of the treatments they fought for. glad to see he had a nice time. glad to see him running. welcome back to "cbs this morning." you know who else is running, brene brown. she is doing a ted talk and one of the most popular ever, with 39 million views. she discusses why we struggle with being vulnerable. she is a best selling author with two decades of experience researching pain and empathy. she hopes to spread the message about vulnerabilities. brene brown. >> the research is fitting in. that's the opposite. fitting in is assessing and acclimating. here is what i should say. here is what i shouldn't say. here is what i should avoid
talking about and dressing like. that's fitting in. belonging is belonging to yourself, first. speaking your truth, telling your story and never betraying yourself for other people. true belonging doesn't require you to change who you are. it requires you to be who you are. that's vulnerable. >> brene brown joins us first on "cbs this morning" to discuss. we were talking about you in the make-up room. see what you miss in the make-up room while we are getting our hair done. >> my hair takes so much longer, i am in a special room. >> we watch it, we watch it. we love. you said vulnerable is not a weakness. i don't know anybody that wants anybody to know they are feeling vulnerable or it's an asset to what's going on in life. you say what? >> there's a lot of mythology about vulnerability. the big one is, it's weakness.
it's uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. i had a life changing moment standing in front of special forlss, u.s. military. i asked a question. can anyone give me an example of courage. in your life or someone else's life that didn't have discomfort. a guy said three tours, there's no courage without vulnerability. we don't understand that as a rule vulnerability is the birth blase of trust, belonging, courage. >> ucyou have to have vulnerability. you tick tok examples of it, like -- >> we asked thousands of people, what is vulnerability, everything from saying, i love you first. the first date after a divorce.
trying to get pregnant after a miscarriage. firing someone. starting a business. as a parent, one that killed me, i remember sitting across from a participant, sending my son to orchestra pack tis today or tryouts, knowing how bad he wanlts to make first chair and knowing he probably won't make it at all. there is no courage without being all in. like, if you can do something and not feel vulnerable, it's probably not that brave. >> one of the hardest things being vulnerable that leads to creativity and success, as you say. the hardest part in taking that first step is fear of failure and fear of the critics. i want to play part of this from your special. it really speaks to why many people never take that first step. listen. >> there are millions of cheap seats in the world today filled with people who will never once step foot in that arena, never once put themselves out there. they will make it a full-time
job to hurdle criticism and judgment and really hateful things toward us. we have got to get out of the habit of catching them and die secting and holding them close to our hearts. we have to let them drop on the floor. don't grab that hurtful stuff from the cheap seats and pull it close. don't pull it anywhere near your hearts. >> easier said than done. don't take criticism and feedback from people not being brave with their lives. >> we knlt. here is the thing. here is what i discovered. if you um up the research, everyone wants to be brave. no one wants to be vulnerable. that is the rut. that is what will reconcile our entire lives. how will i be brave with my work, my partner, my kids and stay safe and armored? the answer is, you don't. 22 years of doing this work, i have never seen the cheap seats like they are today.
>> yes. >> twitter is filled up. >> you call them cheap seats, i call them haters. >> there's no part of bravery that doesn't contain vulnerability. when you talk ability three tours and the people who are champion to their bravery, some component of it is they were fearful, vulnerable, they succeeded. that is their no part of bravery that contains putting away your vulnerability. >> i think it depends on how you define it. if it's uncertainty, risk and exposure. we have asked 10,000 people that question. the week after i was with the service people, i was doing work with the seattle seahawks, i asked them that question. they said, no, every day on the field is vulnerable. we can get used to be vulnerable a little bit. maybe in that way, bravery becomes a practice and feels less scary.
but i think, i know for myself, every time i'm being brave, i feel scared. >> sure. it's a common -- performers talk before they go on stage to do a part they have done a million times, they feel like they are about to die. >> yeah. >> it's there. i guess the question is, for some people, if they turn inward to vulnerability, they can get stuck in it. >> sure. >> what is the distinction between obsessing over it and recognizing it and being able to leap it in order to be successful? >> you know what i think it is? it's a learned practice of discomfort. i have learned how to manage my discomfort, physically. the physiology is real. >> it's a side car to success. >> i had a question last night that someone asked me in the audience. she was shaking and crying. i have a book coming out. i'm scared to death. i don't know what to do, this is how i feel. i said congratulations, this is what courage looks like.
>> vulnerability is what you show when you don't know the outcome. choosing to be brave, you are going to get your beep kicked, you are going to fail and know heart break. why would we want to make that choice? >> who wants heart break? >> it's a good question. here is the problem. hard things are born of vulnerability, heart break, fear, grief, disappointment. love, joy, belonging, intimacy, trust, creating, innovation are born. when we armor up to block the hard stuff, that armor keeps all the experiences that bring meaning to our lives as well. >> i may be quoting you, but not taking a risk is a risk itself. >> can you imagine? this is how i end the special. getting to the end of our lives and having to ask, what if i would have shown up? what if i would have said yes. to me, that's more terrifying than putting myself out there.
>> just say yes. after watching it, i texted so many teem, couples that are friends of mine. i texted so many people. you did a great job. >> thank you so much. >> really exciting. what is great is samantha bee, when they walked in, they said i love you, i love you, too. i just watched your special, it's so good. i love it when girls come together and say you are good. >> cheering you on. >> brene brown, thank you. "the call to courage" on netflix. you can get it after "cbs this morning." for the first time in years, the annual white house correspondent's dinner this saturday will not have a comedian as the featured speaker. comedian samantha bee has an idea. she's calling it the not the white house correspondent's
we want you all to have a great time. i know it looks like we have a cash bar tonight. as i promised you in the invitation, i will get mexico to pay for all your drinks. >> that is comedian samantha bee. hosting the not the white house correspondent's dinner for the first time. it was her alternative to the
official event honoring political reporters. the real white house correspondent's dinner is saturday in washington. once again, president trump will not attend. instead of a comedian, his torn will be the featured speaker. so, for the second time, the host of "full frontal," samantha bee will host her own dinner at the same time. >> thank you for having me. >> you said i'm not going to do this again. >> i didn't think it would be necessary. but, it turns out, now that we are not having a comedian at the dinner, it felt like it was time to -- >> you are answering a national cal. >> it's a national call, really. doing the lord's work here. yes. >> so, what can we expect? a long list of celebrities. >> a long list of special guests. we are doing great music. ultimately, we are honoring journalists. journalism is under siege for
sure. we want to highlight that and have a fun night. we want to provide an alternative event that is joyful and secelebratery and ridiculou. >> we need fun, too. the country is so divided and so nasty. so, how do you navigate those waters? how do you know how far you can go to the line without crossing it? >> as you know, gayle, big believer in the grand old first amendment. we push limits on our show, for sure. but, we work our way through very difficult material. we try to highlight things that are important to us. we bring humor to it, too. i feel like it's a way for people to get to understand or process the things that are happening right now, which can be very devastating. i think, through the lens of humor is a way for people too. >> how long have you been doing political humor? >> for so long. >> it says in the notes 16
years. >> yeah. >> how do you think it's changed in that time that you have done it and how has it changed under this president? >> a lot under this president. the volume of news we are handling is, it feels unsurmountable. >> like sipping water from a fire hos. >> it is like a fire hose of news. we are not spending the amount of time we used to when i worked at the day lily show, we proces stories. >> we are missing the depth. >> it's difficult to when things keep coming at you. >> is the challenge creating good comedy, not swinging at every single pitch. >> you can't. we are only on once a week, so we get to sit back and process, take it all in. >> take the best pitches. >> the best pitches and do, sit back and do a little more analysis. i feel lucky to not have to do it every day. sorry, guys. >> how about the mueller report, samantha bee?
how did dwryou do that? >> it's difficult. i feel like -- it's a difficult one. i'm not sure that people -- i mean, people have been groomed. people are being groomed in this administration to not take things seriously and not let stories sit with them and not let things stick. i find that very distressing. it's incredibly distressing. >> people want to know about it. then people are tired of it, too. >> tired of it, too. i don't know how you knanavigat it. we have to keep presenting it to people and hoping they will -- >> there are 20 democrats running for president. a new one may have been announced since i started this sentence. >> most likely. >> is that a gift? >> it will be a very interesting year and a half. it's already so exhausting. i feel like people should want
to be president if they want to run. i feel like we have an accidental president, somewhat. i think if you are going to run for it, you should want to do the job, not just sell a book. that's my standard. >> you have senator warren saying they should take steps toward potentially impeaching the president. >> yep. >> speaker pelosi took a step back. what do you think of the divide within the democratic party? >> there's always a divide. that's what we are good at. people need to take the report seriously and sit with the implications of it. i'm not sure we are capable of doing it these days. >> do you think this mueller report or anything else is too serious to joke about? >> of course. there are definitely things that are too serious to joke about. we don't joke about them. we find the line as we get to it. we don't have an agenda that feels off topic. we take every story that feels important to us and figure out if there's a past to it that we
can make on the show. if there is no path, we leave it to our line. >> you will never run out of material. >> literally never -- >> you will always have a job. >> a democratic president, republican president, we never run out of material. >> unfortunately, our path has come to its end. >> no. no. >> we have to watch on saturday. >> the path is closed here. it will continue on saturday. >> thank you so much. >> not the white house correspondence diner. secretary of state, john kerry explains why climate change is a matter of national security. the mayor of georgetown, texas went from how they went from using coal to renewable energy. listen wherever you get your podcast. we'll be right back.
