good morning, it's friday, january 12th, 2018. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump tweets about his language on immigration after critics blast him for a profane description of some countries. ahead, the one and only bob scheiffer looked at what he calls the president's unforced errors. plus, oprah winfrey talks with leading women from hollywood's time's up campaign. there is a globe condemnation on president trump this morning. >> the president's remarks caused a political backlash here in washington and a diplomatic incident overseas. >> the
8:01 am
until the face of all accepted behavior and practice. >> this is the so-called bad deal behind president trump's latest controversial tweet. the over $1 billion embassy. >> the backside shows it turnings to sleet and rain and snow, as well. >> looking at all this destruction here, it's hard to imagine that anyone could have survived this. >> governor greitens is now accused of slapping the woman with whom he had the extra marital affairs and he is now in damage control as an investigation gets under way. >> with the hotel company in finland to create a "game of thrones" themed hotel that's made entirely out of ice. take a look. look at that. that's one of the bedrooms. yeah, that should make for a good night's sleep. curled up on a slab of ice with a white walker staring down at you.
8:02 am
good morning. penal president trump tweeted again this morning. he wrote on twitter, quote, the language using by me at the daca meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. what was really tough was the outlanding proposal made, a big set back for daca. >> the president is referring to a proposal from democrat dick durbin. one person briefed on the meeting tells cbs news, the president responded why do we want all these people from this expletive hole cups here. we should bring in people from more places like norway. >> lawmakers quickly condemned that language. republican tim scott says our strength lies in our diversity, including those who came here from africa, the caribbean and over other corner of the world. to deny these facts would be to
8:03 am
ignore the brightest part of our history. republican mia love says this, her parents are from haiti. the comments were unkind, devisive, elitist and fly in the fashion of our nation's values. >> the new year is 12 days out and the white house is in damage control. there is also the charges in michael wolff's tell-all book, "fire and fury." the cbs news political contributor bob scheiffer has covered nine presidents over here career. bob, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> it's great to see you. >> get along with just one face. >> no, we can't. >> there is just one face the nation host and i'm glad to ask him a question. bob, let's start with these comments about immigration. take it away. >> well, they did not remind me of george washingtonr
8:04 am
his other predecessors. i can't imagine -- i mean, look, anybody that's been a control room at a television studio when something goes wrong, you learn a lot of new words. but to say this in the white house during a discussion, this is a new low. and i think he ought to be ashamed of himself. do i understand he's now saying he didn't say it as a renewed tweet this morning? >> that's what he is saying. and the white house didn't deny it. they tried to turn it into some kind of a view about his toughness on immigration. they didn't deny he said it. >> but what about the fact that he called them expletive hole countries when he was referring to countries that have a predominantly black population. >> and he said why couldn't we get people here from norway, which 99% while. >> and all who report they're happy in
8:05 am
there was a report the other day on how happy they are in norway. this is -- >> is it racist? >> yeah. yeah. how can you take it any other way? and when i say that, i don't say that lightly. but i mean, how else could one read this? >> and you know what, bob? this should not be a bipartisan issue. the fact that it was so unhurtful and so unkind and so demeaning to so many people, are you surprised that more republicans aren't really speaking up and condemning those words? >> i am in some ways. but, i mean, you know, that's their business. i have my opinions and they have theirs, but i don't see how this helps them or anyone else. and i don't know where this goes. i mean, this was the most unusual campaign we've ever experienced. certainly in my lifetime. this year with the coming of the wolff book, the chaos rolls on. >> did you learn anything in that book that you dn'
8:06 am
that book? >> you know, i think he really nailed the chaos in the white house. and i think he was right on. now, you know, you can question some of his sources and methods and all of that. but people always have asked me over the years, what's your favorite beat? the white house, i guess? and i say yeah, that was fun. but, you know, everybody in the white house, they all worker for the same guy. it's on capitol hill where you really find news because there are all these factions and all these different independent contractors and that's what's fun for a reporter. but that's really not amped any more. as the wolff book underlined, there is many factions in the white house now as there are up on capitol hill and we've never had anything like that before. and i thought he really gave you a guide. i mean, you had the spicer and the priebus wing over here. kind of speaking for establishment republicans. you had bannon who is this
8:07 am
new force into himself over here. you have the kushner family, they have their own spokesman. they have their own agenda. and then you have the boys, the trump boys over here. and all of these people. there's no question about it. they're all leaking, they're all having their own agendas. we've never had anything like that. >> i wonder if i can get your historical perspective on the mental fitness of the president. >> you know, i don't know. i'm going to -- i'm going to say i'm not a doctor and i don't know what it is, but i do say i keep wondering why does he say these things? why does he step on his own story when you're in the middle of the tax reform and all of that? and he has the little good news and he manages to get something else, some stuff involved in it. i don't know why he does what he does. >> and his most recent comments come into context. he started his campaign saying mexicans are rapists. what do you think the effect will be for republicans
8:08 am
in 2018? >> you know, i think the most underreported story right now and the reason we haven't reported on it is simply because you have all of these disasters that we're going through with the climate at the same time this continuing ongoing chaos in the white house. i am beginning to think, for the first time, that there is a -- i think that the democrats may actually take the house this time. you've had 29 republics now that have decided they're not going to run. they only need 24 seats, the democrats, to take the house. i'm not saying it's going to happen, but i think it's now possible. i wouldn't say it's probable, but i think it's possible and i think that's the big story. we haven't had talk to talk about it. >> and we're out of time to talk now, bob. we'll have you back to talk about it. sunday on "face the nation," we'll talk to senator corey gardner and senator joe
8:09 am
>> when it was announced you were coming on yesterday, i said what is he sdesing? somebody said, does it matter? it's good to have him at the table. absolutely right. >> i remember my last appearance. right after scaramucci. key follow-ups. >> we do remember. we are moving right along. a baltimore hospital is apologizing after video surfaced showing a patient being dumped outside in dangerously cold weather. >> go ahead and sit down. >> cell phone video taken by a concerned witness shows this 22-year-old woman at a bus stop wearing only a thgown and socksn freezing cold weather. the hospital failed to show basic huen manty and compassion but he calls this an isolated incident. >> we feel comfortable in the statement that what you saw in that video is not a process that would occur with any frequency at all.

this morning, many walmart employees are looking forward to pay raises, but others are being laid off. the retail giant announced yesterday it will increase starting wages to $11 an hour. it's expanding maternity leave and adding parental lead. many employees are eligible for bonuses up to $1,000. walmart says more than a million hourly workers will benefit. >> that sounds like a good
8:17 am
announcing the pay raises, the company announced the closing of 63 sam's club stores. up to 12 will become fulfillment centers for online orders. walmart did not say how many workers would lose their jobs, but thousands could be affected. lee gallagher join us at the table to discuss. welcome back. >> good morning. >> so two big announcements here. is the timing important here? >> the timing is -- it was confusing to a lot of people. many pr experts might say you do the bad news first and then you do the good news. but they were two big pieces of news, as well from the number one company on the fortune 500. >> so it sounded good at first, but then you hear about the layoffs. >> the first news, the news that walmart is raising minimum wage is part of a bigger transformation walmart has been undergoing. under the news, not so new as of 2014. it's raised it
8:18 am
now 10 to 11. it's rethinking how it treats its employ es. the benefits are significant including benefits for adoption for the first time and increasing the leave. so that's all good. yes, it's pegged for this tax plan as so many other companies have come out and said we are going to, you know, give everyone more money, this is wonderful. but b, you know, it is bigger than that. and then the closings are another story. sam's club, which is the company's warehouse division or membership club retailer division, has been struggling for a while now. it has been losing ground to costco. and, look, retail is really tough right now. this company is in retail warfare. so that is part of what's happening there, which is operate. >> the other promise of that tax bill is this would create job. walmart is a big employer. how does this affect it? >> walmart sort of sets the tone in terms of what it does with its wages. not so long ago, it was not g
8:19 am
this does send a message, also on the benefits side of things. it's not just about wages. the other argument is we're in a tight labor market now. all companies are under pressure to raise wages from a competitive standpoint. but walmart is the number one private company employer, 2.3 million employees. 1.5 million in the u.s. alone. and this, for that reason, is significant. >> walmart says they hope to place some of these employees at the sam's club at other stores. what's the likelihood that that can happen? >> that could happen. it is a big company. it could absorb those employees. it's taking maybe 10, up to 12 of those sam's clubs and repurposing them as did i say distribution fulfill many centers for e-commerce. people are buying online. they're trying desperately to make it possible for you to get your products as fast as you can. fulfillment centers are a big part of the public there. those fulfillment centersl
8:20 am
it's unclear how many people will be impacted by the sam's club news. >> leigh gallagher, good to have you here. thank you very much. >> great to be here. oprah winfrey sat down with organizers of the times up movement after her powerful speech at the golden globe. ahead, in a preview, reese witherspoon reveals what helped her share her story about sexual harassment. you're watching "cbs this morning."

8:24 am
and neutrality helps the oppressors, not the oppressed. and there's moments that you have to evaluate whether silence is going to be your only option and certain times that was our only option. but now is not that time. >> wow. >> you can see more of oprah's conversation this weekend on sunday morning right here on cbs. what a timely thing to do. >> and they put it together on thursday, norah, so just think about that. they were trying to make it work for saturday and it didn't and then they had it -- as it turns out, monday was a better time after the golden globes. and to have all those key people who were involved in the movement, you're right, i can't wait to see the conversation. >> yeah. >> nobody does a better conversation than oprah, yeah. >> she does know how to talk to people. president trump will get his first physical today since taking the oath of office. ahead, what the public has a right to know. we hear from a

8:31 am
appearance as the guest on the debut of david letterman's new show. >> let me just say this. if it were not for the constitution, there would be michelle. no, no, no, no. you guys are misunderstanding me. what i'm saying is i am prevented from running again by the constitution. but even if it were not for that amendment, michelle would leave me. and. >> reporter: oh, well, okay. >> my next guest needs no introduction. the two men discuss a range of topics, including races in america, their kids, their careers and aging. i thought one of the interesting things, too, the president said is that michelle taught him the presidency sometimes is more about shaping attitudes, shaping culture, increasing awareness.
8:32 am
president that matters so much. >> i get that point. and "people" looks at a photo on twitter showing what it calls a sexy kangaroo walking the path to a public bathroom in australia. what does a sexy gang radio look like? just like that. >> that's hilarious. >> it's like the bert reynolds photo. >> that is very funny. the tourist gave up trying to get in and snapped the photo of the kangaroo, strike a pose. >> cute. and britain's reports on saudi arabia's first women only car show. coming just months after saudi arabia granted women the right to drive. the showroom featured fuel efficient cars and a team of sales women. president trump today will get his first physical exam since taking office. cbs news has learned the president will fly to walter reed national militaryic

8:34 am
looking at that or anything else is impacting his health. >> there will be a complete head to toe physical exam. >> dr. william lang is the former director of the white house medical unit. >> is there any rule or precedent about ip forming the public how much the public has a right to know? clearly, there is no legal requirement for any disclosure. from a medical ethical standpoint, there is no requirement for any disclosure until there is the remote case that the physician thought he was a danger to himself or others. >> the release of medical information by the president is something that began in the 1970s. >> it is not mandated. there is no constitutional obligation or no legal law that requires it. >> rose has studied presidential illnesses. >> a lot of presidents have been really sick men. a lot of that information has been hidden from the public. >> woodrow wilson had a stroke

8:36 am
include things like cholesterol, glucose and kidney function. an evaluation usually takes 2 to 4 hours and specialists standing by. >> i was wondering if there is cognitive testing, but you seemed to indicate no, there will be none of that. >> not here. >> so what if there's the need for additional testing, the doctors see something. is he required to administer that or reveal that? >> dr. lang explained to me that this is not a test for fitness. it's more an executive physical that gives the president an idea of how he can be healthy. so while normally he would discuss his recommendation and a accepts of what might be, you know, a recommendation to do, he's not mandated to do it. these days, we talk more about share decision making. >> right. >> so he would say, look, you might set of urgent to do this because i have a sense that something is up, but at the en
