7:00 am
we begin this morning with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> whether people like me or not, there is enthusiasm, that i can tell you. get out and vote, vote, vote, vote! >> the candidates roar into super tuesday. >> i'm leading in the polls. i'm the smartest man that's ever lived. i'm the greatest person and everyone else is a loser. >> if donald trump is the nominee, hillary likely wins, which means we lose this country. >> reject the mean spiritedness, the bigotry, being pedaled by the republican candidate. >> i am not sure how you bring about change if your super pac collects millions of dollars from wall street. >> new york judge ruled the justice department cannot force apple to hack into an iphone for the fbi. sportscaster erin andrews broke down in a courtroom answering questions about being videoed taped nude inside her
7:01 am
>> it was all over the internet. i didn't know what it was. >> victims inside that vehicle. in california a suspect led police on a five-hour chase. >> this is not somebody anybody is taking lightly. at a trump rally in virginia, a photographer for "time" magazine slammed to the ground by a secret service agent. >> all that -- >> steve ballmer going off the mini tramp saying if he dunks, they all get a free pair of converse. >> he has small hands. are my hands small? i never heard that one. and all that matters. >> guys, we have never seen anything like this election. >> so this is how tough this election has gotten. it is says my boyfriend prefers trump. i'm single now. >> on "cbs this morning." i thought chris rock did an incredible job hosting. he was fantastic. >> in fact, his jokes about the all-white oscars were so good the academy has already decided they won't nominate any black people again next year.
7:02 am
is presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning," gayle king is off. we're happy to welcome soledad o'brien to the table. pleased to have you. >> thank you. >> today could be an historic super tuesday. it is the biggest day in the presidential race so far. people already are voting in some of the 12 states, holding primaries or caucuses. 595 republican delegates are at stake, polls show donald trump is favored to pick up most of them. >> in the democratic race, 859 delegates are up for grabs and hillary clinton is predicted to win a big majority. nancy cordes, peggy noonan, john dickerson and major garrett are covering every angle of the super tuesday contest. we begin with major at a polling station in valdosta, georgia, near the florida border. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're inside trinity
7:03 am
trickle in to determine if donald trump will emerge tonight as the likely republican presidential nominee for president. not so long ago, super tuesday looked tailor made for ted cruz. no more. cruz and marco rubio trail trump badly and after tonight they could lose 10, maybe 11 states, given trump in terms of delegates and momentum, elements of his campaign that could prove unstoppable. >> trump 49%. little lightweight marco rubio, 16%. lying ted cruz 15%. >> campaigning in georgia, donald trump sounded triumphant as the tone of the 2016 republican campaign turned uglier. >> there is no room in the republican party and there is no room in the conservative moment for the kkk or david duke or anyone who will not condemn them. >> both marco rubio and ted cruz tried to turn trump's initial
7:04 am
endorsement from former ku klux klan leader david duke into a disqualification for office. >> it is revealing of a willingness to traffic in some very ugly sentiment. >> reporter: his closest rivals also pounced on rumors that trump took a softer line on immigration during an off the record, therefore, unreleasable session with "the new york times" editorial board. >> apparently he told them his real feelings about immigration which apparently are different than what he says in his speeches but it was off the record. so "the new york times" won't release it. >> donald, if you're sitting in that there, telling "the new york times" you're lying to the voters, the voters have a right to note. >> reporter: "new york times" refused comment. trump said this last night. >> we had a board meeting, it was off the record. all of a sudden they leak it. >> it's negotiable on the law. >> it is negotiablible. things are negotiable. i'll be honest with you, i'll make the wall two feet shorter or something. >> reporter: his anti-media rhetoric goes far beyond "the
7:05 am
>> the political press is worst of all. >> reporter: a photographer trying to leave the media pen to cover black lives matter protesters monday was stopped by a secret service agent. angry words were exchanged and the agent threw the photographer, chris morris, to the ground. >> i stepped 18 inches out of the pen and he grabbed me by the neck. >> reporter: the secret service is investigating the incident but tension has been rising at trump rallies. now anxiety within the republican party itself is quite evident. freshman nebraska senator ben and mel martinez said if trump is the candidate, they will not support him. nancy cordes is at a polling place in alexandria, virginia, just outside of washington, d.c. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. virginians are early birds, the
7:06 am
even bernie sanders would not dispute that hillary clinton is going to win a majority of the super tuesday states today. the question is, how many? and will it leave him with a chance, even a small one, to catch up in later states? >> virginia is clinton country! >> reporter: clinton country could stretch from virginia to texas today. she's leading by 20 points or more in polls of all of the southern states holding primaries. one of those states is arkansas where clinton was first lady when her husband was governor. >> i think it would take a woman to straighten this mess out. >> i sure like bernie but what he's suggesting, i can't see any way it's financially possible. >> reporter: sanders looks strong in colorado, minnesota and oklahoma. plus his home state of vermont. but those states contain less than a third of the delegates up for grabs today. >> i look around this crowd tonight, i think we're going to win here tomorrow.
7:07 am
neck and neck in massachusetts, sanders made a late-night appeal to the states' voters. >> please come out to vote. please bring your friends, your family, your neighbors. >> reporter: and he insisted the race is still just getting under way. >> last i heard we have a lot more than 15 states in the united states of america. >> he has promoted free college for everybody. >> reporter: clinton does still mention sanders in every speech but she has amped up her criticism the gop candidates as she looks to portray herself as their most likely rival. >> the republicans, i have to give them credit, they are persistent. persistently wrong. at some point you can't just say whatever pops into your head if you want to be the president of the united states of america! >> reporter: last night on the eve of super tuesday, the state department released its final batch of clinton's 30,000 private e-mails.
7:08 am
those e-mails were deemed either partially or completely classified. the clinton campaign will be glad to get the drip, drip, drip of these e-mail releases behind them but the larger issue isn't behind them, the fbi is still investigating her use of a private server and a federal judge said last week that some of her top aides should testify about it. >> nancy, thank you. cbs news election director anthony salvonto is here. could this be a clean sweep for hillary clinton tonight? >> it looks like it could be a super tuesday for her. she starts with the delegate lead over bernie sanders and she's got the lead in the polls, big states in georgia, in virginia and in texas, thanks largely to strong support from african-american voters who are so crucial in those states. bernie sanders hasn't been able to make inroads there. with 859 delegates at stake in
7:09 am
>> could donald trump sweep the board? >> he certainly could. trump starts today with a delegate lead, 81-17 over cruz and rubio. this could be a make or break night for both cruz and rubio. we start with two big states, georgia and virginia where trump leads because voters think he's their best shot at winning back the white house in november. watch for whether rubio and cruz have been able to change minds about that. the big state in play, texas, 155 delegates at stake. even more important is the politics. it's cruz's home state. he needs to hold it. he's leading in the polls but if trump wins there, it could be a knockout blow to cruz. >> john dickerson is here along with pegny nygy noonan. >> good morning. >> what's happening behind the scenes within the republican party as they try to stop donald trump? >> there's a lot of panic.
7:10 am
republican veterans from campaigns and staffers on the hill, they're terrified about what it would be like to have donald trump as the party nominee. they would wake up every morning and members who are in their own races would have -- be asked do you agree with what donald trump says, do you stand behind this? what changed it, they were pretty darn worried. what changed it was donald trump's inability to come up with an answer when he was asked about the kkk and white supremacists. not just what he didn't say but what he did. what lawmakers are noticing is an almost excessive political correctness. when asked about white supremacist, he didn't want to offend and suggest anyone was being a bigot. that's what shocks lawmakers. he has an unpredictable instinct the. >> does it go so far as look for another candidate. >> the only two options are trying to beat him at the convention and that would only work if he didn't get the right number of delegates. the other thing people are talking about is launching a
7:11 am
running a third party candidate and giving conservatives a candidate to back that wasn't the republican nominee. >> even before the polls open today on super tuesday, 40% of the vote has been cast in early absentee balloting. >> yes. >> are these attacks by trump, by cruz, too little too late? >> the attacks by trump and cruz -- >> cruz and rubio. >> cruz and rubio against trump, you know, the republican consultant class and the republican party decided nine and six and even three months ago this whole thing is going to go away. we don't have to take it on. we don't have to attack. when they finally realized, oh, my god, trump and trumpism are real, he could win, they suddenly thought they had to adopt his style and go aggressive and be tough and pugilistic. my sense of it is, it doesn't make anybody look better. they also -- i always thought
7:12 am
at trump, having a conversation about policy as opposed to insulting each other. i'm all for consultants beating themselves up but i'm not even sure if they moved earlier it would have worked. >> the party is clearly in chaos. couldn't trump realistically bring down the gop? >> he could break it. you know, he could break it. imagine what would happen if he racks up a lot of delegates, they get pot convention, it looks like trump has won and is about to win and the party machinery finagles it away from him. trump supporters would bolt the republican party. at the same time, if trump waltzes to the nomination, wins, is crowned at the convention, there is a major sliver, maybe not just a sliver at the top of the party, that will start a republican party in exile. you can quite imagine that happening. we're seeing something big. >> and given that, if trump has a great night as is projected tonight and hillary clinton does
7:13 am
chances that we will see mike bloomberg enter the race, that we will see another republican, whether it's mitt romney or someone else enter on a third party ticket? >> the think the second option is more likely. people i'm talking to are trying to find a way to stop trump. we're talking about running a third party republican. >> someone like mitt romney. >> paul ryan seems to be the default choice in republican politics. if you have a problem, go to ryan and get him to solve it. >> is it possible trump has appealed to reagan democrats? >> the reagan democrats who are firmly in the republican party he does. >> we'll learn that tonight from the massachusetts results? >> in massachusetts you have to be a republican already. reagan picked up democrats in texas in 1976 against ford. that is where it all started. these were people who had been democrats their whole lives and they were jumping over. >> kind of a populist. >> yes. >> we're going to know something about the answer to that question from turnout.
7:14 am
be huge on the republican side. has that disaffected republicans that haven't been voting in a few cycles coming back or is it in some places independents and democrats joining in? and are they actually generations past, we're talking about the grandchildren of the reagan democrats. >> thank you, peggy. thank you. >> thank you. >> norah and i will join our entire political team to bring you super tuesday results tonight in prime time special. coverage begins at 10:00, 9:00 central on cbs and cbsn will have continuous super tuesday coverage throughout the day. tune in on roku, apple tv, amazon fire tv and other supported devices. >> i wish i had all those tvs. >> i confess i do. >> how do i get those? fbi director james comey and the top lawyer for apple are set to testify today about digital encryption before the house judiciary committee.
7:15 am
big win. he ruled the government cannot force april toll provide investigators access to a locked iphone in a drug case. the judge rejected the heart of the government's case, relying on the 1789 all writs act. the decision could affect apple's standoff with the fbi over the san bernardino gunman's iphone. supreme court justice clarence thomas has broken his decade-long silence from the bench. thomas peppered a government lawyer with questions yesterday in a gun rights case. he last spoke at length in february, 2006 and his questions drew gasps from the audience. this is the court's second week of arguments since the death of justice antonin scalia. president obama hosts senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and judiciary committee chuck grassley today for a discussion at the white house about replacing scalia. republicans have vowed to block any nomination until after the president leaves office. sports caster erin andrews faces another emotional day in court. testimony resumed this morning in her case against a tennessee
7:16 am
she is suing its owner, operator and the stalker after she was secretly filmed in her room in 2008. the online video has been seen nearly 17 million times. anna werner shows us why andrews says the ordeal left her depressed and anxious. >> erin andrews is expected to return to the witness stand this morning. on monday she left a nashville courtroom as the jury watched a video deposition of the man convicted of stalking her. michael barrett said he tracked andrews down in three cities, including nashville, where he secretly recorded video that would change her life forever. >> i thought for a few seconds and i was like, oh, my god. >> reporter: erin andrews sobbed monday as she described the moment she saw a naked video of herself online and called her parents in a panic. >> i'm just like, dad, i'm naked all over the internet. i don't know what it is.
7:17 am
>> i heard her say "naked. i am naked." what about my career? what about my life? she was hysterical. >> reporter: the 37-year-old tv sportscaster is suing the owner and operator of this nashville marriott, claiming the hotel failed to protect her privacy. >> national marriott could have called me and said we're putting this man that requested to be next to you, is this okay? i would have called the cops. >> reporter: in a recorded deposition, her stalker michael barrett described how he secretly filmed andrews in 2008, choosing her because she was trending online. he said he used a house phone in the hotel restaurant and asked to be connected to her room. >> they connected me. the house phone, concierge phone shows the room number. i knew what room she was in. >> reporter: he requested the room next door and rigged up peepholes sew could take andrews with a cell phone.
7:18 am
front page of "the new york post" post", like they put bars over my body parts. my girlfriend said she was running around new york city throwing coffee on all the papers because she felt so bad. >> reporter: barrett pled guilty in 2010 and was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison. >> i never thut thisought this would happen. i never thought a hotel would let somebody next to me without telling me. >> reporter: lawyers for the marriott maintain there's no evidence showing the hotel deliberately placed barrett into that room and that he tricked his way in. he testified that he posted at least ten more videos of other women online. norah? >> disgusting. terrible. anna, thank you so much. donald trump's campaign thrived after being declared

7:59 am
good morning to our viewers in the west. it is tuesday, march 1st, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including super tuesday voting in 12 states. we'll ask new york daily news columnist mike lupica if anything can stop donald trump. here's "eye opener at 8." even bernie sanders would not dispute hillary clinton is going to win a majority of the states. the question is, how many? >> she starts today with the delegate lead over bernie sanders and she's got the lead
8:00 am
>> cruz and marco rubio trail trump badly and after tonight, they could lose 10, maybe 11 states. >> what's happening behind the scenes within the republican party? >> they're terrified about what it would be like to have donald trump as the party nominee. >> the party is clearly in chaos. couldn't trump realistically bring down the gop? >> he could break it. >> if you told anyone a year ago that donald trump on super tuesday was going to be the republican front-runner, i mean, people would have laughed at you. >> we're going to win, win be with with, win, win. >> coverage begins at 10:00. tune in on roku, apple tv ab am score fire tv and all other supported devices. >> i wish i had all those tvs. how do i get those? the long-awaited primary event super tuesday is tomorrow, yeah, well, so is "ncis" yelled jeb bush.
8:01 am
on tuesday! >> i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and soledad o'brien. gayle is off. americans are voting right now in super tuesday states across the country. bernie sanders went to the polls in his home state of vermont earlier this morning. he looked strongest in colorado, minnesota and oklahoma. those states have less than one huff third of today's delegates. hillary clinton is poised to pick up most of the 859 delegates up for grabs. polls show her leading by 20 points or more in all the southern states holding primaries. clinton's campaign speechers are starting to focus more on the republicans than sanders. >> you get two americans together and they start talking politics, you know there's going to be differences. but that's part of our great democracy. what we can't let happen is the scapegoating, the blaming, the fingerpointing that is going on on the republican side.
8:02 am
tonight as the super tuesday results come in. florida's primary is two weeks from today. republicans are handing out 595 delegates in 12 states, donald trump is expected to win most of them. and the gop establishment is getting more nervous that trump will win the nomination. former senator and republican party chairman mel martinez told "the wall street journal," quote, if there is any, any, any other choice, a living, breathing person with a pulse, i would be there. tell us how you really feel, senator. >> 2012 nominee mitt romney hit trump for missing a chance to disavow support from white supremacist. on twitter romney called it, quote, disqualifying and disgusting response by donald trump to the kkk. that was ek code bychoed by south carolina governor nikki haley. >> the kkk came to south carolina from out-of-state to
8:03 am
grounds. we saw and looked at true hate in the eyes last year in charleston. i will not stop until we fight a man that chooses not to disavow the kkk, that is not a part of our party, that's not who we want as president. we will not allow that! >> trump was asked again this morning if he's ready to renounce all white supremacist support, he said, of course i am. mike lupica, syndicated columnist for "the new york daily news." is covering the presidential race. good morning. welcome back. >> good morning. >> the republican party, is it splitting apart in front of our very own eyes? >> i don't even think he's running as a republican. i think he's running from the party of trump. i wasn't aware in presidential politics you could use the dog ate my ear piece defense when you said something.
8:04 am
did disavow sounds like a sublanguage. no. i find him repugnant. he got asked three times the other day. i wish every time i said something stupid on television could just, you know, blame it on the ear piece. >> blame it on the ear piece. what about this idea that the attacks started too late from ted cruz and marco rubio? >> you know, think about where we are, norah, with this campaign. what you're hearing now is that rubio should have gone after trump on things like spray tans and size of hands and which one of them sweats more before this. what sort of way is this to decide the leader of the free world? i always wonder what people outside this country are looking at now. >> we heard nikki haley, one of the other aing to she made yesterday, whether it was trump vodka or trump university, that all of these had been failures, that we're not a project the republican party, this is a race for president. the idea that some of the support behind trump is that people think he's a great businessman, and that he will
8:05 am
>> yes, but this information has been out there all along. i look at all of this outrage now and think, wait a minute, now, we're getting religion a little late in the church service. and now we're at super tuesday and you're wondering, can anything happen tonight that will change the narrative? because eventually it's not about truth or beauty or these real housewives fights. it becomes simple math. if they don't stop them tonight or in the next couple weeks, you can't stop them. >> why do you think nothing sticks? even the kkk to business dealings to the pope to john mccain, the wlislist goes on and on and on. >> i asked the basketball chuck shaquille o'neal? big action heroes. he turned himself into the great here's the thing. i don't know if he thought the wall thing would resonate. he talks about a ban on muslims
8:06 am
into effect and they scream again. as long as he keeps carried by the roar of the crowd, why would he stop doing what he's doing? >> so the fault is with the voters and fault is with us? >> yes, i think a little bit. we can talk about how dumb the campaign has become. i mean, i remember an old story in "psychology today," where did my iq points go? i know where they went. they got sucked into the republican race over the last three or four days. if people go for this, i do believe we always get the kind of leadership in this country that we deserve. >> i do, too. >> so now we're going to find out what happens if it's ever mr. trump and mrs. clinton on the stage. >> we have been fascinated by the spectacle and not the assault? >> charlie, it's a show. he has mastered the show. he has gained the system here. he has figured out that this is a great big, unfortunately, reality show in which he's
8:07 am
gotten enough people to go along with it. the other day when he was asked that question three times about david duke, okay? i don't think he misspoke. i don't think he misunderstood the question. you could see him calibrating whether or not he was beginning to hurt himself with a large part of his base by what he said next. >> his first response was i don't know him, i don't know him. >> how can you not know david duke. >> the republicans i talked to say this is an student for us to remake our party. is this overstating it, that we may be witnessing something like 1856 where the republican party conservative party or something party? are we making of the conservative movement? thing has become. at the start of it, everybody was paranoid that trump would run as a third party candidate. now the republicans are wondering if they have to run their own third party candidate. oh, wait a minute, out of their
8:08 am
>> great to have you, mike. >> thank you very much. >> can we point out the cover of the "new york daily news"? >> the apocalypse is here. >> we will see tonight. we'll see tonight. thank you. norah and i and our entire political team will have coverage of super tuesday beginning at 10:00, 9:00 central here on cbs. we'll have super tuesday results throughout the day on our digital network, cbsn. watch on roku, apple tv, amazon fire and other supported devices. >> how many of those devices do you have? >> i was going to say, i didn't hear mike's phone in any of them. >> you can get it right on your phone, that's exactly right. only on "cbs this morning" we reveal the "forbes" billionaire list. the young billionaire who has

", be increasingly defined, dominated, and controlled by women. he's here. you don't mind being controlled by women do, you, charlie? >> i don't want to be controlled by anybody. >> he's here at the table along with jodi kanter. she's written extensively about gender and workplace issues. good morning to both of you. jack, good morning. >> good morning. >> how did you come to that conclusion.
8:35 am
statistically young men are defying gender norms. they're underit indicated, they're being outlearned by women, being outeducated, economically outperformed by women, the jobs that are being created now in the workplace are requiring college ed indication, only 40% of college degrees are going to men versus 60% going to women, which is a flup of where we were in the 1970s. economically under 30, single unmarried women are outearning single unmarried childless men under 30 by almost 20%. >> so how does that -- >> it's a generational flip. >> right. how d us that change our concept of masculinity? >> these young men are not their fathers or grand faers. young men who are growing up more and more in fatherless home, growing up in homes where the woman is outearning her husband where they're both
8:36 am
they're not just defying traditional gender norms, they're not learning traditional gender norm, but yet when they come into the work-force, their adult years, these traditional gender norms are kind of being imposed on them. >> jodi, what do you see? >> really we see the gender rolls o r converging more in society, whether you look at women taking combat positions in the military or fathers staying home. almost nobody is living out the gender script or marriage script that their parents did and we find a lot of social confusion. i once interviewed a stay-at-home dad whose wife made a lot of money. he confessed to me, i'd like to buy my wife a piece of jewelry but i can't figure out to spend because she's the one who makes the money. people are trying to figure out this new money. >> and that stay-at-home dad when he goes to the party or an events with his wife, the first question asked is what do you do
8:37 am
because they're not being supported. they don't have the support group, the 60 years of support that the women's movement has had. we're starting a whole new generation that doesn't get the kind of support they need to help them as we're moving into this new world as they're moving into a world where two-thirds of all the -- >> isn't that how women have felt for so long, that we haven't gotten the support we need? >> women have had three periods of women's movements. you back 60 years and you have support groups being formed. almost every corporation has a women's group, there are no men's groups. churches, local organizations, community groups, they're not supporting men the way they're supporting women and men are not supporting men the way women are supporting women. >> the numbers, women are in
8:38 am
if you look at the top ceo list, politics, men are doing just fine. >> until you get into the under 30. what i focus on in the book is our sons and the trends that we're seeing and the patterns we're seeing and what our sons are coming into in terms of the opportunity they have. they're not -- they're underis indicated. they're more likely boys in high school. they're -- 50% more likely to be failing math, science, and reading. they're less likely to get into the colleges because economically a college degree doesn't mean as much to them. they only earn 10% more in a lifetime with a college degree. >> so, jodi, we're hearing more and more how women are becoming an important force. how does society sort all this out?
8:39 am
for instance when i interviewed younger men, some have been grateful and happy to have the expectation of having a spouse who will learn. when you look at the fact that a private school college education costs $250,000 now, there are a lot of younger men who don't want to assume the burden of providing solely. but i think soledad is right to point out that ta barriers for women are especially stub board in many cases and so we've got this sort of complex duo situation but it often ends up feeling less like men are dominant or women are dominant but that people are sharing the anxiety of earning money and raising a family more easily than ever before. >> is the flip side of anxiety the opportunity to spend time with your children? you look at someone like mark zucker berd who takes a paternity leave. i don't know that there's a lot of bhoen do that. >> i do acknowledge in my book
8:40 am
working, women and even where the woman is outearning the men in 50% of the homes women are still doing more housework and doing more child carry. that's changing with younger generations, but we really need to support the men and create a better dynamic and a better narrative, especially in media and advertising which portrays men often acid yachts and buffoons. we really in advertising often portray men as not able to change the baby's diaper or pick out their own analgesic. we need to change the nair tish around young men and we need to create a better sense of a man's role in the relationship and help him understand. 85% of all heterosexual relations that end are ended by the woman. >> jack myers, jodi cantor, thank you very much. the book's called "the future of men." it goes on sale today.
8:41 am
kidneys to a stranger after seeing a facebook post. >> why did you up want to do it? >> it literally boils down to the fact that it's the right thing to do and this is the
8:42 am
8:43 am
8:44 am
8:45 am
a social media campaign could have good results. the campaign caught the eye of a generous stranger who volunteered to be her donor. you'll see their meeting, their first meeting only on "cbs this morning." senior contributor is outside maine medical center in portland where the surgery is taking place. dana, good morn ging. >> reporter: good morning, soledad. 14 months ago linda deming was more than one of 100,000 people on the kidney transplant list. unwilling to wait she took matters into her own hands and at this very moment she's going a healthy kidney who until last night she mefr met. for over a year linda deming has hated her routine. three days a week she gets up before dawn and drives 20 mijtss
8:46 am
it's a four-hour process and it leaves her exhausted. on monday as she left the center one last time the 63-year-old grandmother was overcome with relief. hours later she met her donor for the first time in person. deming searched 14 mornlts ago when her kidneys stopped functioning. >> it crashed rail bad. with don't know why all of a sudden they changed so much, but they did. that's when i had to sign up for dialysis. >> doctors told dem sheg needed a kidney transplant to survive. >> we asked our friends, our families, and we got six people to step forward to be tested. none of them tested well. >> she was put on a transplant list but was determined to find a living donor on her own, putting up road signs. printed posters, even making
8:47 am
volunteers to get tested but it was a facebook page called a kidney for linda that caught her attention. >> i was sitting down going through this news feed and the page popped up. to this day i don't know why. i had no affiliation with it. >> moved by deming's story, the 37-year-old mother of four volunteered to qualify, keeping in touch with deming throughout the process. >> every time i called her i was like, o', harks i tested. oh, hay, the cross match went through. >> you're getting emotional. >> i cried every time she called. i jumped up and down. i still doan know what to say to her. i can say thank you but that doesn't cover it. she's giving me my life. >> why did you want to do this. >> it literally boils down that it's the right thing to do from the moment that i knew i was a match, i knew this would happen. >> how about a toast. >> yes. >> for deming, it's a chance to experience life on her own terms.
8:48 am
