7:03 am
>> here is how cruz was greeted by this morning's new york "daily news" for you nonnew yorkers. the if [ bleep ] train is a prominent line here in new york city. we frequently tell out of towners to take it. it only has one stop -- your mother's house! announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places! welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. vinita nair is with us. bernie sanders admits in a cbs news interview that hillary clinton has a sterling resume. this comes after a day of attacks on her qualifications to be president. sanders says he only challenged clinton because she attacked him first. and he would still rather talk about the issues.
7:04 am
he says it should nontt be what he called at this timetit for tat. >> reporter: the charges she wasn't qualified was startling from the beginning because the clinton camp considers her credentials to be one of her strongest assets. bernie sanders sat down for a interview and said he is trying to send a message to the clinton camp not to push him around. >> she has years of experience. she is extremely intelligent. >> what should she say? >> i have some experience too. >> reporter: pressed by charlie rose, bernie sanders admitted that democratic front-runner hillary clinton is qualified to run. >> secretary clinton, if she is the nominee, i certainly will support her. >> reporter: it was a shift from earlier in the day when a devriant sanders wouldn't say if he would back her in november. if you think she snolt qualifiedis not qualified will you support her if she is the nominee.
7:05 am
being qualified, i will respond. >> reporter: tensions are high ahead of the caucus in new york. clinton needs 635 delegates to lock up the nomination. she reminded new york voters of her hometown credentials thursday with a ride on the subway, traveling nine blocks on the 4 train in the bronx. things got heated in philadelphia where former president bill clinton was campaigning for her. [ inaudible question ] >> oh! >> reporter: he took on two demonstrators who were protesting his wife's comments in a 1996 speech about gang members. >> i don't know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hooked up on crack and sent them out onto the street to murder other african-american children! maybe you thought they were good citizens!
7:06 am
she didn't! you are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter! tell the truth! >> reporter: hillary clinton has apologized for using the term "super predator," but still a sticking point for some african-americans who believe the 1990s crime bill she was defending committed to mass incarcerations. both she and others are made major changes to the national criminal system. >> we asked senator sanders why clinton should apologize to the millions killed in the iraq war. the tenor of this campaign has changed when you're questioning the qualification of a person to be president. whether questioning your qualifications say they haven't. >> all i'm saying. >> are you questioning their qualifications? >> you're right, okay? but what i want to say is when i see the headlines, clinton questions whether sanders is qualified to be president, you
7:07 am
>> but don't you owe it to yourself and those people who may vote for you to know more than simply look at a headline? you looked at a headline and then responded questioning her qualifications. >> oh, charlie, it's not a question of a headline. here, something else. i mean, after we won in wisconsin, i think the clinton campaign -- that was our sixth victory in seven states. i think what they have said publicly is the tenor is going to change. they are going to go much more negative on us and they have. that's the fact. >> take a listen to this. this is what you said. you said that clinton should apologize for iraq war deaths. do you really -- >> for what? >> for iraqi war deats. >> this is after i was asked to apologize for the tragedy in sandy hook. you know, put these things in the context. >> but it's tit for tat. >> it is tit for tat but i'm responding to attacks being made against me. >> i'm asking where the tenor of this campaign is going and is that going too far to say she
7:08 am
war deaths? >> why bear responsibility for the tragedy for the horrors of sandy hook? let's get off that. of course, she didn't bear responsibility. she voted for the war in iraq. that was a very bad vote in my view. do i hold her accountable? no. >> wow. >> he didn't really answer the question. >> which question? >> well, he answered the question with a question. it seems like had he very defensive response for all of the actions of late. >> he really suggested several times that, you know, that they started it and he is talking about surrogates. and that he has to respond because that is the way politics- is today in his own words. >> good interview. >> very good. new york will be a key state. donald trump faces troubling new poll numbers this morning. a national survey found 69% of americans have an unfavorable view of trump, that includes nearly half of republican voters. the gop front-runner is still a heavy favorite in this month's new york primary. but his rivals are trying to close the gap.
7:09 am
traditional deli in the bronx, while ted cruz looked for voters while making food in brooklyn. this is what he called new york values. >> i have no regrets for standing up for the people of new york who have suffered under the failed policies of liberal democratic politicians. >> while cruz tries to sell himself to new yorkers, the new issue of "time" magazine asks it is he likeable to beat trump to the nomination? lindsey graham says cruz is the best choice. graham did not always believe that. >> if you now make trump and cruz, i think you get the same outcome. you know? whether it's death by being shot or poisoning, does it really matter? ted cruz at his core is an opportunist when it comes to his political career. >> if you killed ted cruz on the floor of the senate, and the trial was in the senate, nobody
7:10 am
we may be in a position we have to rally around ted cruz the only way to stop donald trump so i'm not sure that would work. >> you'd recommend that in order to stop donald trump, rally behind ted cruz? >> i can't believe i would say yes, but yes. >> what turns you on about cruz? >> that he is not trump. >> senator lindsey graham is with us right here in studio 57. welcome. >> well, i hate tape! we are in the process of six putting in the republican primary. just bear with us! >> so why did you change your in mind? >> number one, the field has narrowed. i think trump is a disaster for the country and the party. i got back from middle east and no one asked me about cruz. i think president obama's foreign policy is failing but the idea we are going to withdraw from nato, that we should ban all muslims has made it very hard to partner with people in the middle east who we need partners in the region.
7:11 am
policy on the trump side is jibberish. >> you hope everybody will rally behind ted cruz in order to stop donald trump? >> yeah. >> can do you it? >> yeah, i hope so. >> how will you do it? >> number one, if i can do it, anybody can do it. ted cruz is republican and smart and won a very effective campaign. we have a lot in common but also have some real differences. he is a real republican from the more ideological spectrum than i am but not destroy our party. >> can he beat hillary clinton if he is the nominee. >> yes, i think so. >> why cruz and not kasich? >> because john kasich is probably more electable, but ted cruz has run a campaign that he has become the primary amountive to representative to trump. when you add up the votes, 65% of republicans are wanting someone outside the system. ted is in it but he is also an outsider. let me say this to my republican friends. if you parachute somebody in
7:12 am
is a good guy and doesn't want to be put in this position. i'm trying to get us the most viable nominee for 2016 that could win without destroying the party. i think trump destroys the party. if you parachute somebody in and try to ignore millions of those you are destroying this party so we are back to ted. >> if donald trump wins more than 50% of the vote in new york and will get almost delegates here in new york and that would mean ted cruz would so vto win about 90% of the remaining delegates in order to win. it's not going to happen. >> a lot better than winning 140% what kasich said. i think he can stop trump at 1237. i think trump is going to fall short. >> if you had to place the bets on a contested convention, what is the likelihood that is going to happen? >> 4-1. >> the likelihood the party leaders are going to try, in your words, parachute someone else in? >> that would be a disaster. trump is a disaster. one, i don't believe he is a republican. his policies are really bad for the country. >> even though you think it's a
7:13 am
do want to see like three or four ballots and go to paul ryan. >> the same republicans who ignored trump. take my advice -- >> why would paul ryan be a bad candidate? >> paul ryan would be a great candidate. you should run. >> don't choose someone who run in the primaries? >> the nominee should come from one of the three. the bottom line millions of people have gone to the polls and cast our ballot. if 2,000 of us take that choice away, then i think you destroy the republican party forever. >> you mentioned you were coming dak black and blue. >> forever. because the ted cruz people leave. the trump people will leave no matter what. ted cruz is a part of my party. donald trump is an interlooper. i don't think he is a liable republican. he has given money to every liberal democrat in the world. whatever you say about ted cruz he is smart, conservative, he represents the philosophy that he and i agree on more than donald trump. >> "time" magazine you said he is likeable enough?
7:14 am
bernie and hillary? yes. if we are electing a president on the like ability we need to start over. >> what are the allies in the middle east saying? both of those candidates -- >> what is going on in america? first thing out of the mouth from the prime minister of israeli, saudi arabia, turkey, egypt was -- what is this with trump? >> what do you tell them? >> i said it's the silly season that he's not going to be nominee of my party, that he doesn't represent traditional mainstream republican foreign policy. he's america -- america is angry and they are responding to the anger but this guy will not be the president of the united states and he doesn't represent the republican party that i love when it comes to domestic and foreign policy. they are unnerveed but i tried to be reassuring. i said the congress is there no matter who is the president. >> senator graham, thank you. breaking news from the vatican. a new document on sex, marriage
7:15 am
the pope tells catholics to let their conscience show them how to behave and not priest rules and tells the priests not to judge. seth doane is here with more. >> reporter: good morning. there are no bombshells, no major changes in church doctrine. the church, for instance, reconfirmed its position on birth control. but in these 200 plus pages, we see a pragmatic pope, a pope that seems to understand the pressures of modern families and relationships. it's the pope's guide to love, sex, and marriage. father thomas rosica from the holy press office says it's some of the most beautiful language he has ever seen in a papal document. >> this is not a manual of answers to all of the great problems. it's, rather, an honest attempt to raise all of the great questions that families are facing today. [ speaking in foreign language ] >> reporter: francis famously said who am i to judge when
7:16 am
not stop him on a judgment of same-sex marriage in this paper. it says there are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions. he calls divorce evil. but he has left the door open for people who are remarried without an annulment to take communion. accept our humanity as it was created but that is not exactly the acceptance the transgender community was looking for. perhaps most surprising is the way francis acknowledges the pressures of modern relationships. moss is a professor of theology at the university of notre dame. >> he tackled some marriage counselors wouldn't address. like being attracted to people outside of your marriage and diminishing attraction to one another as people age. >> while this document may not usher in radical change, this pope did recognize the great diversity among the world's 1.2
7:17 am
the pope left room for discretion among catholics in different regions. at times, was quite practical, even offering a bit of marital advice to young couples, suggesting that they have a morning kiss or take trips together, or, for instance, share the chores. >> that doesn't sound so bad. seth doane in rome, thank you. a spring storm could bring a blast of winter to the middle east and northeast. the nasty mix of snow and rain is targeting several states today and into the weekend. green bay, detroit, and pittsburgh are among the places that could see up as to 4 inches of snow. severe weather slammed the mid-atlantic yesterday and ripped off roofs and damaged cars near bought and a possible tornado barreled through southern florida. more than a dozen homes and businesses were damaged. a car chase in l.a. looked like showbiz and l.a. police said chef neverthey have never seen anything like it. carter evans shows us the joy

audience. >> top down on the convertible! that is kind of nuts but a funny kind of nuts. what this guy is doing -- whoa! whoa! >> reporter: in los angeles, car chases have become a familiar sight. they seem to happen all the time. but for these two men running from the police turned into a bizarre scene right out of a hollywood movie. >> whoa! you know, i don't know if this guy is showboating or what he is trying to do right there. very dangerous situation. >> reporter: the robbery suspects took police on a tour of some of the city's busiest and most iconic roadways. >> their 15 minutes of fame might come to a sudden stop here. >> reporter: their blue mustang doing doughnuts on hollywood boulevard. speeding through intersections in laurel canyon. >> tmz! look at the tour bus! the tour bus is trying to get out of the way. >> and sneaking in and out of
7:19 am
>> high speeds and wet roads car with the top down and these guise are, obviously, having a good time out here. >> reporter: in restaurants and bars, people couldn't turn away. >> whoa, got spike strips. >> reporter: after hitting spike strips and getting a flat tire, they kept going. eventually these things do come to an end and this time it was in south l.a. >> these two guys, their moment to shine. >> reporter: not before the suspects nonchalantly posed for a few selfies and some high five's. fortunately for police, the two surrendered without resisting an with no reported injuries. for "cbs this morning," carter evans, los angeles. >> was it worth it? >> i think they were already going to jail because of the robbery so they went out -- you know, whatever. >> he got some good pictures prosecute from that one.

he's not scared to go up against the criminal justice system. he's not scared. that's why i'm for bernie. i'm bernie sanders and i approve this message. it's not about the money money money money it is friday, april 8th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead, including the debate of whether large banks should be broken up. one of the biggest names in
8:01 am
lagarde, is in studio 57 to talk about that and much more. first, here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. sander sat down with cbs news and said that he had been trying to send a message to the clinton camp, not to push him around. >> all i am saying to the people, if they are going to attack us, as has been the case time and time again, we are going to respond. >> if donald trump wins new york, wins more than 50% of the vote that means ted cruz has to win the remaining 90% of the delegates in order to win. it's not going to win. >> it's a lot better than having to win 140% when kasich has to do. >> if these 200 plus pages we saw a more pragmatic pope. >> the car chase is coming to an end. they are sitting on the car. >> last night's show gave anyone who loved it in the past, a chance to rekindle the relationship before saying good-bye. >> i've had that kind of experience with a sand trap.
8:02 am
hole! >> we are in the process of six-putting in the republican primary. just bear bus. >> you want ted cruz to get the republican nomination? >> at this point, there is no choice. >> at this point, there is no choice. that kind of passion that inspired the new campaign slogan, ted cruz abandon all hope! announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by nationwide. i'm charlie rose with norah o'donnell and vinita nair. gayle is off. in a cbs news interview, bernie sanders says hillary clinton is extremely intelligent and has years of experience, and sander said he called her unqualified to be president because she attacked him first. the clinton camp insists she never said he was unqualified. >> clinton did say sanders had not, quote, done his homework when talking with the new york "daily news" editorial board. charlie asked sanders about that last night.
8:03 am
about your interview with the daily news here in new york and talking about breaking up banks and talking about what is necessary to do if a financial firm is too big to fail. >> right, right. >> they say you don't have a plan for that. >> really? >> that you have these ideas but no plan. >> well, okay. >> to lay it out. >> then go to my website, charlie. my senate website. and you'll find legislation that i've introduced which is pretty specific about how we break up the banks. and what that legislation requires is that the secretary of the treasury will determine which banks are endangering the fiscal health of america and which banks might be, quote/unquote, too big to fail and bring down a significant part of the economy. >> how would you break them up? >> how would you break them up? >> yeah. >> you would determine which banks are too big to fail. that can destroy the economy. >> how would you determine that? >> that's not very hard. that's what -- that's what
8:04 am
if a bank has a great deal of size and the bank is unstable financially, and if that bank were to go under and bring down a significant part of the economy, that bank should not exist. if it's too big to fail, it is too big to exist. >> sanders campaign said he would use current laws to break up those banks within a year if he becomes president. christine lagarde is one of the most powerful leaders in global finance and she is managing director of the international monetary fund, the imf. she pushes for world cooperation, despite fears of economic insecurity and terrorism and we are pleased to have her here in studio 57. welcome. >> thank you. >> we have many questions for you about the global economy and china and all of that. first, what we said to senator sanders about financial institutions being too big. does the global economy need for banks to be broken up?
8:05 am
concerned about the nonbank financial institutions at the moment. so i know there is a lot of focus on banks and how they should be broken up. i think a lot of work has already been done into being able to resolve them if they fail to deliver. but there is a lot of financial transactions happening outside - the banks. >> shadow banking? >> yes, absolutely. and there is good shadow banking and there is bad shadow banking. i think what matters is the shadow banking sector has to be supervised and regulated so that the trust that most people have in the banking institutions, in the financial sector in general, be protected. >> let's talk about the health of the global economy. i know you said in a speech this week that it's facing increased risk and uncertainty and that we are on alert. what worries you? >> what worries me is that too
8:06 am
chinese slowing down. third, you have financial tidaling caused by the different monetary policies that are being used around the world between the fetedd and the bank of japan and that is tightening of currencies which are hurting. the combination of the three are exposing a fragile growth at the moment. >> are you worried about the chinese growth? >> i'm not worried about it because i believe that 6.5% is nothing to be ashamedive. >> which is part of the five-year plan? >> it is lower than what we have experienced with china over the years. so it is slowing down. it is moving from manufacturing a certain kind of manufacturing to more services, moving from exports to more domestic markets and changing in terms of monetary policy and exchange currency regime.
8:07 am
incredible shift to, you know, organize and manage and for people to anticipate, so we are not worried. we don't think there will be any hard landing, as has been sometimes feared. but, equally, it's a big, big change. >> what about influence. >> what recommendations do you have for the u.s. economy? >> we recommend for many countries, u.s. included, what we call a three-pronged approach. it means taking structural measures, adopting a sound growth friendly fiscal policy and using monetary policy to support the other two. so this is what we recommend. to give you an example, in the united states, for instance, we believe that minimum wage would be a very good idea. it's -- >> increasing the minimum wage? >> yes. >> to, what, $15 an hour? >> i don't know exactly what the right threshold would be. i think there are differences between states and there are,
8:08 am
within the jurisdiction of the state authorities. but it's pretty concerning when you see that 50 million american people live in poverty and that is in that 50 million, 40% >> speak to the issue of trade, because in the political debate, both parties have problems with trade. >> and you're really sounding the alarm bills about protectionism saying if even if the average man is worried, that basically the cards are stacked against them, they should avoid this knee-jerk reaction to say let's avoid other countries. >> history has told us time and again that building barriers, moving to protectionism, thinking that you can just deal with international interconnected issues such as -- such as terrorism, such as refuges, behind border is an illusion and is very conducive to extremely disruptive situations. we have seen that in europe. we have seen that in many parts
8:09 am
walls don't actually change the situation for the better. >> donald trump has proposed a 45% tariff on china. what would that do to the global economy? >> i think it would be massively disruptive. i also think that all countries are part of the big club called the two which tariff and nontariff barriers be discussed and many eliminated in order to facilitate trade. i would very much hope that the united states continue to be a leader in the world economy and a good player of a game that it has determined the rules of. >> finally, what would happen if britain leaves the european union? >> we are in the process of assessing the economic outcome of such a decision, but we believe that it's not -- it would not be a positive and we --

8:17 am
>> reporter: garnett had surgery at 9month-old to insert a feeding tube. >> they were hopeful, within time, he wouldn't have so much problems eating. >> reporter: however, lacy says, garnett continued to have feeding issues. so she took him to more doctors. through the years, some doctors had concerned about the cause of garnett's medical ailments. one noted, in a letter obtained by "48 hours" that lacy might suffer from munchasen. >> reporter: that is faking an illness and mostly to seek attention. >> reporter: in 2014, 5-year-old garnett was taken again to a hospital. he was admitted with seizure seizure-like symptoms. later, during that hospital stay, garnett is in distress,
8:18 am
showed and eerily familiar condition. high levels of sodium that caused his brain to swell. >> this is my 5-year-old son on life support. >> reporter: two days later, garnett is officially declared dead. doctors could not figure out garnett's sodium level had gotten so high, unless someone had given him salt. five months after garnett's death, lacy spears was charged with murder. >> i didn't kill my son. i never poisoned him with salt. >> reporter: then why is the sodium level so high? >> you would have to ask the hospital that. >> troy roberts is with us now. it's so hard bautsecause it's a mother and a son. >> 5-year-old boy, so sweet. >> i don't think any of us would think salt could do this. >> me either. when i first got this story, i was like, what? i didn't know you could kill someone by giving them toxic levels of salt but it leads to the brain to swell and lead to
8:19 am
>> does the state have other evidence against her? >> yes. they went to lacy spears' apartment and recovered two feeding bags. inside the bags, lab results showed there were toxic levels of sodium, the equivalent of 69 small salt packs you get to a fad fast foot restaurant. it would be half of a shaker from a restaurant. that was covered from the bags. the custody was lost a day or so but that was found in the bags. i asked her, how do you explain that? she goes, i don't know. >> what about a psychological analysis of the mother? >> it's very difficult. she claims she doesn't have this disorder but you have to go back years and you have to review their history. lacy took this little boy, norah, to 25 hospitals at the very least. and the weeks leading up to his death, she was researching the harmful effects of sodium on the
