7:03 am
tens of thousands of expected on the streets of washington for the second full day of the pope's historic visit to the united states. pope francis is spending one last morning in the city. the outpouring of emotion from people in washington has been, in a word, extraordinary. >> the pope will travel to new york city this afternoon, but his day begins with a speech at the u.s. capitol. chip reid is there to begin our coverage. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. on wednesday, the leader of the world's 1.2 billion catholics identified himself as a child of immigrants and he confronted some controversial issues that are deeply embedded in american politics. >> reporter: the head of the roman catholic church pulled up to the people's house in that small fiat. francis, the 266th pope, only the third to visit the white house, was given an exhausted welcome. on the south lawn, 11,000
7:04 am
ticketed guests watched, three words brought president obama to his feet. >> god bless america. >> reporter: his first major speech in english and 78-year-old did not mince words. >> as the son of immigrants, i'm happy to be a guest in this country, which was lastly built by family. >> reporter: he railed against environmental devastation. >> climate change is a problem. we cannot long be left to our future generation. >> reporter: the first latin american pontiff said he came to the united states in name of all americans. while waving from an open-air
7:05 am
white house. security personnel brought some children to the pope, including sophie cruz, who wants her mexico-born parents to become american citizens. 280 bishops listened in st. matthews cathedral saying he would work to be sure that crimes were never repeated. 25,000 were on hand as the pope celebrated the first conferring of st. hood on u.s. soil at an outdoor mass. and during an unscheduled stop at their convent, one-by-one, nuns of the little sister of the poor kissed the hands of the holy father. the pope's visit to that convent is notable pause that convent is suing the president obama in the provision in the affordable care act. it's not known if the pope and
7:06 am
in the oval office because that private was meeting and off the record. norah o'donnell is also on capitol hill with a look at what to expect today. norah, good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: it is a glorious morning here and pope francis will be the first pope ever to address a joint meeting of congress. we are expecting as many as 15,000 people outside the capitol to hear the pope speak against in english which is not his native language. many will watch on the jumbotrons set up on national mall. he will arrive here 9:20 eastern time. he will go up on the west front of the capitol at 11:15 eastern the pope will visit catholic charities of the archdiocese of washington and dine with the poor and homeless people in d.c. at 4:00 this afternoon, he will leave nearby joint base andrews by plane and an hour later,
7:07 am
he'll arrive at john f. kennedy airport in new york city. from there, the pope will go to st. patrick's cathedral in manhattan to hold evening prayers. right now he is waking up again here in washington and that is where jan crawford is this morning. jan, good morning. will we see the pope with people there again this morning j. >> reporter: you can bet. he is waking up again on another beautiful day here at the vatican embassey and head up to new york later this afternoon. the pope's focus has been those kids. as i said, difference groups of kids have greeted him every time he has come and gone from the vatican embassy this 17-year-old received a blessing from the hole father something as you can imagine he told us he'll
7:08 am
the main characteristic of the day yesterday was joy. when do you ever have tens of thousands of people in washington, d.c. and they are all happy? norah? >> reporter: jan, that is a great point. thank you so much. like everything in washington the pope's statement are being put through a political filter. conservatives in congress need to be most concerned about what francis might say in his speech here today. nancy cordes is outside the capitol with a preview. >> reporter: good morning. even the speaker of the house john boehner who invited the pope to speak here said he was not given any advance notice on what the pope is going to say, but if yesterday is any indication, he is going to wade into some of the issues that no divide this place. on immigration, climate change, and aid to the poor, this pope's views lean decidedly to the left. he even lines up with democrats on a nuclear deal with iran.
7:09 am
and so, like everything on capitol hill, the pope's address has taken on some political overtone. senator dan coach is a republican from indiana. is that going to be uncomfortable for republicans? >> i hope it has a spiritual content. i think we need that more than the political, but let's give him a chance to speak his heart. >> reporter: no one wants the speech to turn into a version of the state of the union where one party applauds and the other sits on his hands. there are issues like abortion and gay marriage that, for decades, have put democrats at odds with the church. but those are not the issues that animate pope francis. >> the pope believes in global warming. you do know that, right. >> reporter: his views are have even become a focus for gop candidates, six of whom are candidates. >> i don't get economic policy from my bishops or cardinals or my pope. >> i happen to disagree with the pope on this one.
7:10 am
paul gosar will sit out today's speech because i don't need to be lectured by the pope about climate change but what if the pope comes with a lecture for both sides? >> he may tell them, get over your partisanship! sit down and talk to one another! at that point, the american people will jump up and applaud. >> reporter: nearly a third of congress is catholic so there is a lot of excitement about this speech on the right and the left. so much, that a letter has actually gone out to members of congress asking them to refrain from handshakes and conversations along and down the center aisle. leaders are worried that members will try to get as close to the pope as they can, perhaps get a blessing, or even a selfie as he walks to the podium. norah? >> reporter: i love that detail in that reporting. nancy, thank you so much. charlie and gayle, that is right. 31% of the lawmakers in congress are catholic. that is much larger than the jen
7:11 am
catholic so he'll get quite a reception today. >> 166 members of the 535 members of the house and senate are roman catholic. they include speaker boehner and house minority leaders nancy pelosi. six of the nine supreme court justices are catholic and they include the following. john jaengsenkins is joining us. father, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> reporter: let me begin with this. you called and said that this has the possibility for the country of being a moment of grace. what did you mean? >> you know, i wish to communicate that. i wish i could communicate with your visitors the wonderful feeling that was present here in washington yesterday and is present today. a joyfulness, a spirit of celebration, a warmth, a sense of community.
7:12 am
this city, but in the wider population there is a real warmth and a sense that this pope brings us altogether and calls us to something higher and if we could capture that, if we can embrace that, it's a real moment of transformation, i think, for us. i really believe that. >> do you that i is intentional on the part of the pope that is what he really wants to accomplish, a moment of grace or a spiritual awakening? >> i think that is absolutely what he wants to accomplish. he is a pastoral leader. he is the pope. he is not trying to be a politician. he is not trying to help this side or that side. he is trying to call us to something higher, to a moral plain that is higher and bring us together. absolutely that is what he is trying to accomplish. >> father, is there anything in particular that you are hoping to hear him say and what does this mean to you personally to be there today? >> well, i think one of the things i think many of us are discouraged by is acrimony in
7:13 am
the political life and discussion of our country. i believe the pope is a figure of moral and spiritual figure that can draw us out of that, those divisions and that acrimony to really something higher. we, in america, are great when we are our best selves, our most noble selves. what i think the pope can do is to call us to that. for me personally, it is a call to me to be a better pastor, a better person, whenever i see the pope, i walk away committed to do a better job, and i hope we, as a nation, can walk away with that same feeling. >> he does not fail to make his point, even this fthey are political. he visited, as you know, the little sisters of the poor, a sign of support for their fight against the federal government and obamacare? >> he does. i think he is clear about his views, but they come from a place of a kind of moral and
7:14 am
i don't think he is trying to tip it this way or that way on narrow political issues. his agenda is even more radical and more ambitious. >> thank you for being with us. a special report on the pope's address to congress. that will start around 10:00 eastern. we are following breaking news in saudi arabia where at least 310 people died today in a stampede at the annual pilgrimage. 450 others were hurt outside the muslim holy city of mecca. 200 million faithful around the year are tag part in this year's pilgrimage and it began on tuesday and the stampede is the worst disaster at the haj since 2006. putin addressed the general assembly on monday for the first time in more than a decade. this morning, the kremlin said it is too early to say whether he will meet president obama. we looked at what putin thinks of america and how the world
7:15 am
that took place just days ago outside moscow. here is a preview of sunday's report for "60 minutes." >> you are much talked about in america. there is much conversation, more so than -- >> translator: maybe they have nothing in america to do but talk about me. >> no, no, no. or maybe they are curious people or maybe you're an interesting character. maybe that is what it is. as you know, some have called you bizarre. >> translator: so what? you know, people call me different names. >> reporter: does the name fit? >> translator: no, it does not fit me. it's not important how i'm called. these are well-wishers, friends or political opponents. it's important what you think about you, what you must do for the interest of the country which has entrusted you with the
7:16 am
state. >> reporter: are you curious about america? more than simply another nation that you have to deal with? >> translator: of course, we are curious about what is going on. america exerts enormous influence on the situation in the world as a whole. >> reporter: what do you admire most about america? >> translator: i like the creativity. >> reporter: creativity? >> translator: creativity when it comes to your tackling problems. their openness. openness and open-mindedness, because it allows them to un unleash the interpotential of their people and, thanks to that, america has attained such amazing results in developing their country. >> you can see our interview with the president on the season premiere of "60 minutes." that is sunday here on cbs. >> interesting answer
7:17 am
creativity. does that surprise you? >> no, it's not that he feels that because i think a lot of people admire that about america and one of the things they hope to emulate. >> interesting to see the dynamic between the two of you. i will be watching on sunday. new poll numbers show that donald trump is still in the lead among the republican candidates but down three points since last month. ben carson in second at 17% and followed by carly fiorina and jeb bush and marco rubio. donald trump is boycotting fox news now because he says he is not being treated fairly there. he cancelled his appearance tonight. major garrett is in washington. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. certainly not an average day on the campaign trail. donald trump threatens to boycott fox news and fox, in turn, called trump stale and boring and hillary clinton denied setting in motion the so-called birther allegations questioning president obama's religion and american roots. >> i've had great relationships with the people at fox, but i
7:18 am
haven't thought that they are treating me fairly. >> reporter: early wednesday, fox cancelled a taped trump appearance on the o'reilly factor saying he is banning fox for the foreseeable future. fox said trump engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. he doesn't seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country. trump also accused hillary clinton of questioning then senator barack obama's religion and citizenship during the hard-fought 2008 campaign. >> he was the original birther! she is the one that started that whole thing! hillary clinton is a birther! >> reporter: in 2007 mark penn wrote senator obama was unelectable because he lacked american roots and was not fundamentally american in his thinking and values. >> thank you so much! >> reporter: clinton never
7:19 am
but campaign allies did. here is what she told "60 minutes." >> you don't believe that he is -- >> no, no, i realize -- no there is nothing to base that on. as far as i know. >> reporter: clinton faced the so-called birther question on on the tom joyner radio show. >> this is such a bad example of what's wrong with, you know, instantaneous reactions and americans getting all worked up and people feeding prejudice and paranoia like donald trump. >> reporter: questions about obama's biography did circulate among democrats during that 2008 and eventually died down. the birther controversy was by -- amplification by none other than donald trump. >> thank you very much, major. donald trump is feeling some heat off the campaign trail too.

7:59 am
school children gathered at the residence where the pope stays overnight. people lined constitution avenue outside the white house and filled the seats at an outdoor mass. we saw francis shake hands and kiss and touch as many people as he could. >> norah o'donnell is feeling the excitement firsthand down in washington. she is in the middle of it all. norah, good morning. >> reporter: that's right. good morning. i am on the east front of the capitol and that excitement is just as high today as you can see all around me. there is security and crowds already gathered on the west front up of the capitol. in fact, up to 50,000 people are expected to hear and watch the pope's address in english. on big screen tvs are set up along the washington mall. then after his speech, the pope plans a brief appearance from the speaker's balcony where he'll get a good glimpse of all of washington. around 11:15 eastern time francis will visit st. patrick's church and the archdiocese of washington and serve lunch to
8:00 am
the poor and homeless there that are served by that facility. then this afternoon, he heads to new york where he will say evening prayers at st. patrick's cathedral. can you see it's a busy day again for the pope! now we know that the pope' visit to the capitol is being called the hottest ticket in washington and members of congress are each allowed to bring one guest to the house chamber to see the pope speak. lawmakers are using lotteries, they have been looking essay contests or family ties to the side. who gets to go? i feel like it's the golden ticket on willie wonka. chipped chip reid has more. >> reporter: the people started arriving here at about 5:00 a.m. when the gates open and they are still flowing in. there are 50,000 lucky people who have tickets to watch the speech on those big jumbotrons you see behind me from right here on the capitol lawn but there is a much smaller and much luckier group who actually have

8:02 am
to her daughter. >> she called me first and say i go to church every sunday so can ticket? i said of course. >> i feel like a scalper at a taylor swift concert. >> reporter: she said it was reason enough to give her he ticket to a 22-year-old staffer. were you surprised when you asked and she said yes? >> yes, i was. i was very surprised. >> he sets the right message for young people that a 22-year-old would be interested in sitting through the address of the pope. >> reporter: outside the gallery, the pope's address is expected to draw a crowd similar to a presidential inauguration. >> this area will be filled with people who have come to see the pope. >> reporter: former senate historian don ritchie says this fan fare is unusual for a joint meeting in congress, an occasion usually reserved to receive foreign dignitaryies but the pope's role of religious leader and head of state makes it an
8:03 am
is it fair to call it a ticket frenzy? >> i think so. it's it's like a hot rock star coming to town and everybody wants to be at the concert. >> reporter: norah, here is a fascinating factoid. this is the first pope to address a joint meeting of congress but he is the second religious leader. the first was queen elizabeth in 1991 because she is attacktechnically the head of the church of new england. >> look at you, chip, with all of those facts! i bet everybody is excited who has one of those tickets today. if not, watch it here on cbs because we are going to bring you a cbs news special report on the pope's address to congress. live coverage of his speech begins at 10:00 a.m. eastern, 9:00 central. let's go back to the studio 57 and charlie and gayle. >> vladimir putin will be in new york next week to address the united nations. this will be his physician speech at the general assembly

8:10 am
kids who i might be saving for college, and also think about this. if you're the primary wage earner and you're putting away for retirement you have to get enough coverage to cover your survivor's retirement so these are important pieces of your financial puzzle. >> how much is enough? >> great question. there are calculators and rules of thumb. the rule of thumb eight to ten times your annual salary. >> you know what? it's so much easier now to figure out what you need. you can go to life an easy to use calculator and it plugs in here is my income and what i want to save for college and this is what i have saved already. what is important to know not everyone needs life insurance. maybe you got a boat-load of money saved. you don't -- your death would result in no one suffering. maybe you don't need life insurance. but many people do and we want to encourage them to get that coverage. >> what is the age bracket you're talking about? i know you mentioned dependents and survivors but is there a certain age you say this is
8:11 am
thinking about? >> i think it depends on your circumstance. sure if you're a young parent then you got a survivor all of a sudden you never had before. let's say you were a working couple and both of you were putting money away and maybe one of you were to die the other wouldn't suffer financially. maybe you don't need it. now you have kids, you probably need it. the other group on to consider is for estate planning. i know it's a very small number of americans but, you know, we have an estate tax levy at the federal and the state level and some people who are purchasing life insurance to cover their needs. that is very important, especially in states with low levels of exclusions. >> short answer, is there a kind of insurance? >> term insurance is good when you're young and you're healthy. permanent insurance is good if you need it for rest of your life for estate purposes. check it out. talk to somebody. and be sure to run the numbers. >> that is a short answer. thank you, jill! thank you very much! the football dynasty that does not forget its roots. we are going to follow the manning brothers home to new orleans. they are celebrating their high

>> it doesn't matter. open, actually. >> look forward to it. >> anne hathaway and nancy meyer. hello! i love this movie. a funny thing he said we did it in two minutes. he has an appointment to see your character and says, jules, be prompt because it's over at 4:00 meaning you have five minutes for that interview. your movies focus on relationships and this is not a typical boy/girl love story. when you think of intern you don't think of robert dahe niro. >> i thought it would be funny to have -- would you like to be an intern anywhere? >> yes, for her! >> for her! >> very bored. >> there is something about retired, a retired person who
8:27 am
imagine is going to happen to me and maybe going back into something brand new, start-up. >> you focus on so many people don't focus on what -- they think old people can't do as opposed to focusing on what they can do. >> they are not older so when you're older, you think what -- you still feel the same. >> it's true. >> as we saw when we were looking back at some of your work, i think you're the woman people look to for these wonderful stories about relationships and we still feel that in "the intern." what was the impetus for this particular movie and a what drew you to the role of jules? i heard you say you related to her, especially about having so many public moments in the spotlight? >> yes. do you want to answer for her? >> well, i've written, you know, sort of my share of romantic movies and i just -- >> true statement. >> yes, true statement. and, you know, i just wanted to write something else completely different but, you know, i was always going to stay in the world of people and relationships.
8:28 am
so a friendship movie -- i have great friends, great friends, and a new friendship so you see me like you would in a romantic comedy but it's never romantic. >> the story is always the point, the script and the story? >> yes. and for me, the characters are the story. >> here you have nicholson and >> i like movie stars because they are the best actor. >> good reason. >> working with dahe niro and hathaway, what is the demand from the director? >> maybe you should ask her that. >> what does intermperative mean? >> what does a actor have to do to bring out the best in good arks actors? >> inspire and trust. you asked me what drew me to this. i want to be in a nancy meyer movie for as long as i wanted to
8:29 am
be an actress. >> i don't think this is true. >> e-mails. >> three times. >> i missed third time auditioning for nancy and i finally got the part. initially, we didn't see perfectly eye-to-eye on the character about every last detail. and we were both people who care about detail. >> how did you do it? >> well, i -- i thought perhaps there should be more outward and obvious expression of jules, address, possibly making her a little bit more more unpleasant and a little bit more unlikable. nancy showed me the strength she is leading from her heart and not always making the best decision and messing up public but it comes from a good place and a reason like people like working there and i saw that. at a certain point, i thought i'm going to trust your vision with this character which is very different for me and i'm going to be guided by you through this performance, a
8:30 am
performance i'm really proud of and happy i made that decision. >> i love how you you said you're working with robert de niro, your words. >> i think he is awesome too. he is playing your intern. >> yes. >> i think the dynamic of that was great fun to watch between the two of you. >> fun to play. he is a quiet man but very affable one. you know, once i learned how to breathe in front of him, i don't know. i just started to feel great affection and warmth for him. i don't know if that translated on screen. >> it does. >> it made it easy -- you made it easy for both of us really. >> that was my point, how do you direct robert de niro? >> well, you know, having worked with jack and merle and annie and bob, they are formidable people. i learned they are all open and they want to be good in your movie. they want to make the same movie as you you want to make and they want to succeed in it. when you walk over to them, you
8:31 am
can tell right away, they lean in to you and say, okay, okay. that he make it easy for me really. >> when i thought about this movie as a whole, it seemed like so many layers and commentary on dot com and work life balance if it exists and commentary how men perceive high-powered women. what did you both want people to walk away with? what was the central message? >> well, i'm, frankly, tired of seeing movies where the woman, who is the boss, is evil or up tight or just not like a natural, normal -- i mean, the women i know that have great jobs are wonderful, they are great people, they have big jobs and it doesn't make them a bad person. so we talked about a lot, even in her wardrobe if something was too sharp, audience comes in and expecting a movie where you are supposed to be a b itch. can i say that? >> you just did. >> okay, we have to counter that because that is an expectation.
8:32 am
i just know it. i know that is what people think. also know from other they think she is that tough. she is not tough. she is working hard. >> she is tough in her own way and what she needs to be but that is not her go to state for everything. she is very amicable person and very passionate about what she does and she is not getting it totally right yet. there is a mixture of confidence and inexperience that she is navigating right now. i don't know. i found that very relatable. >> there is a twist in the middle, i'll just say. >> without spoiling it, right? >> without spoiling it. >> thank you, anne and nancy. >> "the intern" opens nationwide tomorrow. a new week of "thursday night football" is here on cbs. we will take you to metlife stadium where jim nantz will
8:33 am
giants/redskin caring about the things that make each of our clients unique...
8:34 am
"thursday night football" continues tonight on cbs. the new york giants will try to avoid an 0-3 start for the second time in three years. they host the washington redskins. cbs sports nfl lead announcer jim nantz is outside metlife stadium and he will call tonight's game.
8:35 am
hello, friend! >> reporter: hello, friend! i got to the stadium a little bit early, guys. we are about, what? twelve hours from kickoff or so. looking forward to it. it will be exciting tonight. >> quickly give us your assessment of the nfl season so far and we will preview this game tonight. >> well, to me the early season story is some of these real quality teams that are 0-2. >> yeah. >> they are facing a little bit of a desperate situation. you got seattle who won the nfc last year, they are 0-2. i'm going to see them on sunday when we have the bears in seattle and the national afternoon window. and indianapolis is 0-2. there is a lot of really good teams out there that have struggled at the start. >> i tell you who is not the afl's new england patriots. >> the patriots have not missed a beat. affiliate talk in the off-season about thedeflategate we all got fatigued with that story. here they come out and they have had two impressive wins and they
8:36 am
look like the team to beat again. >> tonight, how much pressure do you think eli manning is feeling, jim nantz? >> i like that question. i think that he -- i think this whole team knows that you have to be really careful not to let a season slip away from you. i heard charlie reference at the start the giants are trying to avoid 0-3 for the second time in three years. one time they started 0-6. they should be better than that. they had the cowboys with the opener. they had the clock management issue at the end of the game. then managed to somehow lose that one down in dallas. then this past sunday, they had a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter against atlanta and, again, poor execution down the stretch. gave up big plays. this team should be undefeated right now. here they are 0-2 against the washington team that is much better than anyone thought coming into the year. >> let's talk about that team. kirk cousins is the quarterback. i mean, is it now his job to
8:37 am
lose? >> well, the coach, jay gruden, said, you are my quarterback for all 16 games. this was kind of hanging over this washington squad for the last couple of years. what are they going to do with rg3, robert griffin, iii the former heisman trophy winner and winner of the rookie player. he has not been the same player. every player we talked to it's an albatross for them, they couldn't get away from this story. when jay gruden took head coaching job, he said kirk cousin is my quarterback and that is it. they have gone out and played two pretty good games and lost the opener against miami and had a great chance to win that and beat the rams last week. i think they are going to surprise a lot of people this year. >> let's talk about coach tom coughlin. we mentioned he could be 0-3 and right now 0-2. should that happen do you think all eyes are on him, his coaching staff and who will people be looking to blame? >> tom coughlin has lived
8:38 am
through this kind of questioning and scrutiny really since he came here. all he has done is win a couple of super bowl titles. one day there is going to be a bust of tom coughlin in canton, ohio. he will gg into the hall of fame one day. he has been around a long time and doesn't bother him at all. i know what bothers him the fact when his team doesn't execute down the stretch like has been the case in the first two games of the season. so i don't think he hears all that static, all of that noise. and his team, tonight, is determined to come back here and try to right the ship. they are in the division that has really been hit by some big injuries and some strange circumstances. philadelphia is 0-2. dallas has lost row know and dez bryant. >> we have to go, jim. please ask them to leave the logo up on the billboard, the one behind you! >> it will be there tonight! we will.
