♪ welcome back to "cbs this morning." some of the stories that are the "talk of the table." we have a special guest. comedian hasan minhaj, host of "patriot act." welcome. >> thank you. >> what we do here is this is where we pick a story we'd like this share with everybody. >> this story about 10, 15 years ago when i was deeply in debt. chase credit card holders in canada got a big surprise, the banks wiping out their outstanding debt. the deal is chase has gotten rid of having credit cards in canada. they said to their visa, marriott rewards, premier visa members, guess what? don't give us the money back. you're good. >> all is forgiven. >> the thought process is it would have cost them more to stay in canada, keep paying tax and try to collect that money. they said your debt is wiped
8:31 am
out. >> out of the goodness of their own hearts? >> i know. >> economic advantage. >> exactly, that's what i'm saying. >> the upshot is? >> no more debt. nothing else you have to pay off. anthony, what do you have? >> there was an emotional homecoming for an american hero at dallas love field yesterday. yesterday the remains of air force colonel roy knight jr. returned home 52 years after he was shot down during the vietnam war. he was welcomed with military honors. here is the cool part. the pile lot was his son, brian nato, who was a pilot for southwest airlines. it was the same airport he last saw his dad alive 52 years ago. he spoke about the long awaited return. take a look. >> it's a surreal experience because, you know, i accepted that i would never see that during my lifetime, that he would come home, that it was, you know, he was lost forever there. it's an amazing thing that now that he is coming back, you
8:32 am
know, for the family, that means a lot to us. it means a whole lot to us. >> yeah, it really does. there are still 1588 defense personnel who are unaccounted for from the vietnam war. >> so important that they got that closure. >> all right. what do you have? >> hard hitting news u guys. >> we like that, too. >> here we go. this is "cbs this morning." scientists may have found a way to prevent seagulls from stealing your food. you have to stare them down. a study by british researchers tested dozens of gulls in southwestern england. this is real. the birds took more time to steal a potato chip if the person was facing them. researchers also suggest moving away or waving your arms over your head to scare away the seagulls. >> could you show us what that would look like? >> i think put it above your head or act like a bird. they will get intimidated. this is a really good data point.
8:33 am
they tried to test 74 birds by placing potato chips in front of the experimenter. 27 of the gulls bit the bait. i feel bad for the person -- >> did anybody get denied? >> i am assuming one dude was testing and just 24 times, or 27 times he almost got bit. >> how many times did he get the potato chip? >> have you ever been attacked by any birds in new york city? >> i swear these pigeons are after me. they get so close. they are not scared. >> it's good luck if they leave an offering on your shoulder, i'm told. on that note, jurica, what do you have? >> an organization is challenging everyone around the globe to participate in the 5-year-old selfie challenge. you find a favorite photo of your younger self or something that reminds you of when you were younger. you type three positive things you would like to tell your younger self and tag three friends and then, of course,
8:34 am
make sure you tag the organization young minds uk. so i decided to do the challenge. >> i want to see this picture. >> pray when in doubt, keep smiling, and help others. look at that hair. >> how old were you there? >> i was 5. >> oh, it says 5. duh. >> anthony, that was you like five years ago? news really changes here. >> boy, it does. >> yes, i do. challenge accepted, jurica. now for the real reason that you're here, hasan minhaj. not related to nicki minaj. >> no. >> obviously, made a name for yourself by offering your comedic take on a wide range of stories for "patriot act." his work earned him two peabody awards and to spot on "time's" 100 most influential people of 2019. he often takes on heavy topics
8:35 am
like drug pricing, sensor chip ship in china. take a listen. >> because of fentanyl, overdose deaths have exploded. when i saw this graph i couldn't believe what i was looking at. it looks like the income of everyone in destiny's child. right? like you have michelle. you have kelly. then you're like, there's beyonce! >> hasan minhaj, good morning. you make a lot of difficult topics easy to laugh at. especially with a week like this one where we talked a lot about race. we've talked about politics. in your stand-up, the netflix stand-up that i took a look at, you said that trust is more important than truth these days. you also talk about being from a family that came from another country and just what you had to deal with. when you look at how we are talking about race in america, how important is it for you to be the person who help people
8:36 am
find some light at the end of the tunnel? >> yeah, i mean, well, comedy is a really great art form in the sense that it's about building pressure through a premise and then releasing it through a punch line. if there has ever been a tenser time for our country, you know, now is that time. so it is a really great time for comedy and our ability to be able to shed light on these issues. i think people come for the information on our show, but they stay because of the jokes. >> is it tricky to know when it's too soon to tell the joke? >> i think that it's really honestly a math equation. there are certain people that can pull it off. it's almost like evel knivel. can you pull off the stunt? so it is a challenge, but we have great writers, great researchers. it's a case-by-case scenario. >> how much of a balance is there -- because you talk about people coming for the information, but also the comedy. how do you strike that right balance? >> yeah, i mean, there is a lot of trial and error in rehearsal.
8:37 am
it is sort of a gut check thing. in rehearsal we put it up. we will feel it. we will be like, no, that's too soon. for example, what we're doing this weekend with fentanyl, i mean, just that beyonce joke was waiting to be made. >> that has a personal meaning for you? >> yeah. fentanyl is the third wave of the opioid epidemic. you know, we talk about oxy. but this is a whole new beast. i know people that have lost their lives to fentanyl. and so it was one of those things i really wanted to talk about it because we can't defeat this opioid epidemic until we get a grapple and a hold on fentanyl. >> you talk a lot about growing up as a kid of muslim-indian immigrants. with everything that's happening in the country right now are you surprised by the recent discourse? >> you know what's really disappointing is when you look
8:38 am
at what happened in ohio and el paso and you see these manifestos, to me it's a reminder, even though i'm an american citizen, i am a child of immigrants, it's a reminder of are you wearing a home jersey or are you perceived to be wearing an away jersey. these shootings reminded me of that. the new zealand shooting also remained me of that. hey, even if you are citizen, people look at you and etsee th away jersey. and i think oftentimes, when it comes to the discourse, we are so quick to ramp up and take action if it's someone wearing an away jersey executing these attacks. it is far more difficult to look at ourselves in the mirror during a home scrimmage and go, we have some stuff to talk about in our own country. >> when was your insfirtation? >> comedic or in general? >> when you think about going into comedy. you make a lot of jokes about, you know, you don't see a lot of people that look like you doing
8:39 am
stand-up comedy and getting netflix specials. who was your inspiration? >> i was a huge fan of rock, chappelle, pryor. their ability -- i'm kind of a nerd. i love speech and debate and forensics in high school. to me it was putting together an argument and making it funny. i didn't know it was an art form. when i got to college i was like, it's just funny speech and debate. >> let's give a shout out to the high school in davis, california. that's where people are watching you there. >> yeah, of course. >> thank you very much. >> thanks for having me. >> and you can watch "patriot act" on netflix on sundays. be sure to check it out. legos not just f
