our next two presidents side-by-side like that. it's remarkable and historic! announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by toyota. let's go places. ? welcome to "cbs this morning." gayle king is off. alex wagner, co-host of "cbs this morning: saturday" is with us. a new humanitarian crisis is unfolding in the sia aleppo as a day-old cease-fire fell apart. they are on the verge of retaking the whole city and attacking each other with gun firing and shelling and united nations warns of a complete meltdown of humidianity. >> the rebels are holed up around thousands. syrian government buses waited this morning to transport tens of thousands of civilians and rebels. this was part of the cease-fire deal. look at this.
completely empty. prize, but it's come at a horrifying cost. it's hard to believe this is happening in the 21st century. million people. a center of ancient civilization. now bludgeoned by a barbaric war. its people pounded by bombs. after four years of fighting in the city, the syrian regime has won back aleppo from the country's rebels, except for one tiny pocket. but it's done it with total disregard for civilian life.
indiscriminately killed its own people and syria has won this victory with the backing of russia and iran, who america's ambassador to the u.n. addressed yesterday. >> are you truly incapable of shame? is there literally nothing that can shame you? is there no active bar barrism against civilization and no ut under your skin that creeps you out a little bit? >> reporter: as regime forces tightened the noose some of those still living in rebel-held areas have been posting desperate videos on the
n the handful of neighborhoods still held by the rebels. >> a tragic of epic proportions. holly williams, thank you. president-elect trump will hold a summit today with some of the tech industry's most important names. the guess list includes sheryl sandberg and tim cook and jeff bes os bezos and elon musk and most of them wanted hillary clinton to be president. >> nancy cordes is covering the trump transition. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. mr. trump called rex tillerson one of the greatest global business leaders of our time. and he also buried the hatchet at that rally with the man who will be the second most powerful republican in washington, the house speaker. >> honestly, i've never seen a resume like this before.
president-elect defended his choice of rex tillerson for secretary of state. >> rex is friendly with many of the leaders in the world that we don't get along with, and some people don't like that. they don't want him to be friendly. that's why i'm doing the deal with rex, because i like what this is thereabout. >> reporter: mr. trump is the first republican nominee to win wisconsin since 1984. in an effort to smooth over a rocky relationship, he thanked a native son, house speaker paul y every day goes by, i get to appreciate his genius more and more. >> reporter: earlier in the day, the president-elect met with a series of the rich and famous, including "vogue" editor in chief and former football stars jim brown and ray lewis and microsoft founder bill gates and
and he is mr. trump's pick for secretary of the interior. he is a former s.e.a.l. team six commander and western congressman sits on the house natural resources committee and has opposed legislation to sell federal lands to states. >> we need a president who understands that agriculture makes thisry g countat. >> reporter: an early trump backer, the congressman questioned the effects of america should first strive for energy independence. >> the issue is it's not a hoax. but it's not proven science either. but you don't dismantle america's power in energy on a maybe. >> reporter: the interior department is responsible for conserving federal land and natural resources, and nearly one-third of montana's land, the state where zinke is the sole
state or the federal government. >> the trump transition team says rex tillerson is already a diplomat. it's part of his job as ceo of a huge global corporation like exxonmobil. tillerson has strong ties to more than 50 countries. margaret brennan is at the white house how critics are focused on russia. margaret, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, as chief of america's largest oil company, rex tillerson has made access to energy and profits his top priorities. the question now of state, will he approach high stakes foreign policy challenges as a deal-maker or a diplomat? >> rex will be a fierce advocate for america's interests around the world. >> reporter: the president-elect defended rex tillerson's business ties with russia's vladimir putin and other countries with poor human rights records. but members of the senate foreign relations committee who will be judging his nomination, worry that tillerson's business
judgment. democrat chris kuhn sits othe committee. >> as secretary of state he has to fight for free press, human o. senators marco rubio and john mccain exxon is facing at least three lawsuits on pollution and climate change. but tillerson has said that climate change is real, something mr. trump has denied. >> is there no question climate is changing and we have never -- that's never been up for debate. >> reporter: another sticking point will be his plans to imply with federal conflict of interest laws that require tillerson to separate from his significant business interests. including well over $200 million
he'll now have to divest that according to a former councilman. >> congress and the american people need to judge, can we trust mr. tillerson not to have the appearance of a conflict? >> reporter: well, exxon's board is meeting soon to plan how to unwide his financial stake. taking the job of secretary of state will come at some financial costs to rex tillerson. >> thank you, marg. advir to mitt romney and paul ryan in the 2012 presidential campaign. good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: so what are you hearing from republicans in the senate about rex tillerson? >> a lot of questions. so with other nominees you will see statements being issued that basically say we are green lighting this. they actually have to go through the process but it's going to be the kind of know where they are going to wind up. one where enough republicans, only takes three republicans, assuming all democrats vote against tillerson's nomination,
raising serious qutions. on the one hand, they say, look. he has an impeccable resume and ran one of the ten largest companies in the world and an organization whose staff is comparable in size to the sprawling state department. he has the support of key figures in the republican foreign policy establishment, baker, gates, rice, hadly. the president should have his prerogative in picking advisers but a question what he has done with russia and iran and other countries reflect pure intis intere business interests or world news. >> assad has won in aleppo. >> is that about rex tillerson or barack obama and the administration in power and had an opportunity to do so? >> you look what happened. 2011 the assault on civilians began and president obama did nothing and 2013 red line issued
and 2015, russia intervention, which took the human catastrophe down to a whole other level, i mean, and this was russia complicit. i think many republicans believe over the years, you've had president george w. bush, you've had president barack obama and secretary clinton who all approached putin with a bear hug and they don't want another president and secretary of state to do the same thing. >> do we expect tillerson to bear hug or be able to talk tough to you knows him, because he has some credible with him? >> that is the key question. i spoke to one republican senator over the weekend who said when tillerson does his meetings before his confirmation process depends what he says in the meetings. does he say, you guys, come on. i know how to deal with this guy and i'll make the u.s. does not get rolled. i was doing business deals with him and now the interest of the united states at heart and that will be my focus in dealing with putin and i know how to deal with him and they will give him a pass. if he says, no, no, no.
and russia reflect my world view, we need to back off and reduce sanctions and take pressure off putin that is a problem in the confirmation process. >> do you think this matters in trump's position as far as the cia is concerned in russian hacks and make his confirmation rocky. >> the timing is not great. one of his great attributes of being touted as he is a quote of vladimir, tillerson is. i'm not sure that is the headline you want given the headlines we are dealing with right now. in our next hour, only on "cbs this morning," former secretary of state james baker will join us. ahead, why he recommended rex tillerson to be america's top
snow and that is 30 degrees colder than this date last year. with the cold risk of frostbite. whiteout conditions added to the bitter air. >> this is brutal. this is more than brutal. >> reporter: and dangerous. in minnesota, good samaritans pulled a woman from her car when she slid off the road onto thin ice. nearly 150 miles away in duluth,
degrees, a cargo ship encased in ice arrived. for millions of americans, the subfreezing temperatures are unavoidable. the bureau of labor statistics says 47% of u.s. jobs require outdoor work. that's about 64 million people. >> it's like being in a freezer. >> these contractors in minneapolis are spending up to ten hours a day outside in single digit temperatures. >> it's cool on the cheeks. cool on the lips. we're dressed in layers out here. the windchill dropped to negative 8 overnight, crews lit tracks on fire to keep them from in 5-degree freezing over. same temperature 20-mile-per-hour winds result in
for a high and thursday and thursday and friday could be even colder as this arctic air heads east. >> stay warm. thank you. this morning, we are remembering the life and the career of actor alan thicke. the 69 year old worked on more than 100 tv shows and movies. josh elliott of our streaming accomplishments on and off the camera. josh, always great to see you. >> you too, alex. good morning to you. >> reporter: alan thicke wasn't just a memorable tv actor of his time.

on a number of sitcoms and as he might have once taught us, for alan thicke, family was everything. >> i look at my kids or spend some time with them and see what they accomplished and generally i feel that i must have done some of it right. >> robin thicke is alan's son. one of his three children. them. when i look at them, i pat myself on the back. >> now early this morning robin thicke posted a brief note to instagram in memory of his dad saying "my father passed away today. he was the best man i ever knew. the best friend i ever had. thank you for your love. love, your grateful son." >> i had no idea he wrote "the facts of life" and those other jingles. >> he was a talent.

"the new york times" national security correspondent david sanger is in studio 57 how a low-key fbi response apparently
accused of taking $20 million in kickbacks by abusing military benefits. just ahead, how that may be the tip of the iceberg in an alleged health care fraud uncovered by cbs news. time to show you some of the morning's headlines from around the globe. "usa today" says millions of americans could be drinking toxic water and would never know it. an investigation found about 4 million americans get water from small operators who skip required safety tests or did not conduct tests properly. drinking water from utilities that discovered high lead but failed to treat it.
a cargo ship as it sank in a hurricane. a newly released transcript shows one sailor cried, "i'm a goner! !" as the el faro went down last year in the atlantic. the captain refused to change course and that angers the wife of a crew man who died. >> i would have thrown the captain overboard and tried to save myself and the ship, if it were me. but it's just devastating that >> all 33 people on board the el faro died. "the washington post" reports scientists are % frantically coping climate data because they fear the trump administration may tamper with it. in recent weeks, the president-elect has nominated growing list of cabinet members who question the evidence around global warming. scientists are now archiving reams of climate data on independent servers to keep the information safe.
investigates how the kremlin hacked and then leaked tens of thousands of e-mails from the democratic national committee and hillary clinton's campaign chair. the times says an early fumbling encounter between the dnc and fbi, quote, meant the best chance to halt the russian intrusion was lost. the failure to grasp the attacks. the white house reluctance meant the russians have not paid a heavy price for vladimir putin turned, quote, two institutions the core of american democracy and political campaigns and independent media to his own ends. "cbs this morning" asked for a comment overnight from the white house and fbi and dnc and democratic national committee and the trump transition and we did not immediate get a response. "the new york times" national security correspondent david sanger co-wrote the article and we are pleased to have you here. you compare this to the
>> that is the amazing thing. you go down in the basement of the dnc's headquarters and there they have, we have it in the photograph that is on the front page, their old file cabinet that was propped open during the watergate break-in 44 years ago and next to it, a thin little dell server that is about the size of a laptop. >> incredible. >> that the russians got into and it got far more data.
he does nothing basically for seven months. during that time period, the fbi doesn't raise the alarm. this is the time period when john podesta's e-mail is hacked that resulted in those e-mails that we saw later on. so there were just a series of people asleep at the wheel and then you get to the point where the white house was very slow to react and an effective deterrence plan. >> the white house knew about this in june. how do you grade that response knowing all the facts? >> pretty slow. if you compare it to the sony hack two years ago, which we spent a lot of time talking abou and charlie and i have, in that time period they got in a few weeks they got the attribution to north korea, the president came down in the press room accused the north korean leadership and imposed sanctions.
sanctions that you can use in cyber cases. they still haven't used them against the russians. partly for very good reasons. they did not want to appear to be acting in a partisan way on behalf of hillary clinton. partly because they were concerned about the escalation ladder because they thought if they acted before the election, the russians might come in and actually hack the election system. >> this is just an incredible read and just incredible reporting to all of you just to read this to key approach as you call it by the russians resulted in this massive breakthrough. the republican national committee has said that they were not hacked. what does your reporting suggest? >> our reporting suggests they were but not in the committee itself. like most organizations they take their data and send it off to some vendors and guess what? u.s. intelligence found republican data as well. now, they may be narrowly
servers right in the rnc but to say that they weren't hacked would be to say that the office of personnel management wasn't. >> was the goal to influence the outcome of the election in favor of donald trump? you quote the head of the commander of the u.s. cyber command. what did he say? >> he said it was a very deliberate effort here to influence the election. he did not say on whose behalf. and i think while there are a lot of arguments right now abouh russians was. i think you have to think of this as a rolling intent. they started to disrupt and they may have ended up in the last stages when they thought that mr. trump was a viable candidate going in his path. >> one of the points made is if they did hack the rnc and the dnc as well, they only gave to wikipedia the russians what they found from the democrats and not the republicans. >> wikileaks only got the material from the democrats.
they were putting their finger on the scale or because what they got out of the republicans wasn't terribly interesting. >> do we know whether they did anything to have access to the e-mails on hillary clinton's server? >> i have never found anybody with any evidence that they got onto hillary clinton's server. on the other hand, i would have to say that knowing that they had gotten into the state department, the white house and the joint chiefs of staff, it seems remarkable to me that they wouldn't have at least tried to get into hillary clinton's >> cyberattacks are cheap. what does the trump administrationeed to know about and think about going forward? >> they turned out a cyber plan before theresident-elect got elected. i don't think they understand yet -- and i don't think any of us really do the degree to which this weapon has become the weapon of choice.
without prompting a military response. david, incredible piece of journalism. >> thank you very much. >> thank you very much. a nationwide fraud the justice department $20 million st we invite you to subscribe to our "cbs this morning" podcast. you'll get the news of the day and extended interviews and podcast originals. find them all on itunes and apple's podcast app.

the collapse of a cease-fire in syrian has led to a humanitarian crisis in aleppo. the u.n. describes it as a complete meltdown of humanity. thousands of civilians are trapped among rebel fighters in a tiny section in the east of the city. >> the u.n. says there is evidence pro-government forces massacred 82 civilians, including 11 women and 13 children. at an emergency security council meeting, american ambassador samantha power directly criticized russia, iran, and the assad gime. >> three member states of the u.n. contributing to a noose around civilians. it should shame you. instead, by all appearances, it is emboldening you. you are plotting your next assault.
can shame you? >> russia and syria denied committing atrocities. president-elect trump's nominee for secretary of state exxonmobil ceo rex tillerson will need to address the syrian crisis. at a thank you rally in wisconsin last night, mr. trump called tillerson, quote, one of the greatest and most skilled global business leaders of our time. tillerson has spent decade negotiating multibillion dollar oil deals that benefited exxonmobil and russia. members ofh relationships. >> james baker served as secretary of state in the first bush white house ding the first gulf war. the fall of the berlin wall and the collapse of the soviet union. he joins us from houston for a interview you can only see on "cbs this morning." secretary baker good morning.
>> let me begin with syria and this humanitarian crisis. we are now talking about rex tillerson as secretary of state. you know this man well. he's from your home state. what would he do? what would he be recommending? what is his world view about syria? >> well, i don't know that i know his world view about syria, but i know this, he's an excellent choice to be secretary of state and he has the opportunity to be an extraordinarily effective one. because he has the management skills. he's got txp and he's got the negotiating skills to do the job and to do a very good job. >> are you worried about his closeness with vladimir putin? >> well, i'm not worried about that, charlie, because he was doing -- in getting close to vladimir putin, he was doing
and that is make good deals, good agreements with foreign powers, whether they were authoritarian or not, that added to the bottom line for the shareholders of exxonmobil. you know we used to have a saying in washington when i was up there that where you stand is a function of where you sit. and he was sitting in the ceo's chair of exxonmobil. now he is going to be sitting in the secretary of state state on the seventh floor of the state department and i guarantee you he is going to have a different outlook. he is going to be looking at formulating and implementi basis of the principles and values of this country and in the national interests of this country. >> explain the difference from being a ceo of exxonmobil and cutting a deal with russia, a transactional relationship. how is that different, though, from what needs to be done as a diplomat and secretary of state? >> well, i'm not sure, because
>> yes. >> but i have -- i have cut a lot of deals for the united states and i did so as treasury secretary and i did so as secretary of state and some of them were probably good and some of them, maybe not so good. but i don't think there is a heck of a lot of difference. i think, you know, you know what your country's interest, national interest is and what our principles and values are, and you cut a deal that supports all of that and you don't give those away just because you have a relationship with a person on the other side of the so i -- go ahead. >> i'm sorry, mr. secretary. you're partner in a law firm that represents exxonmobil and some of the russian gas companies that do business with exxonmobil. >> that's right. >> i ask you a two-part question. do you have any experience of working with rex tillerson and do you think that at all complicates your support for him? >> well, i've never done anything for the company that -- in which rex was directly involved. i know him.
and i have great confidence in his ability. i want to tell you something, though. this story that somehow i was out there pushing rex early on is not correct. when the transition people for the trump -- for president-elect trump called me, i gave him really high marks. that call came in monday, the day re you've seen on that, that somehow i was pushing him because of my firm's representation of exxonmobil, that's not true. but i do think he will be an excellent secretary of state. >> so who was your first choice? >> well, you know, i don't know that i want to get into all of that, charlie. but i will tell you -- i will tell you this. i will tell you this. i think that there were three people under consideration by the president-elect that i thought would do an extraordinarily good job as
one of them was senator bob corker who is chairman of the foreign relations committee in the senate and another was former governor mitt romney and the next one was rex tillerson, but not necessarily in that order. >> what marks would you give donald trump in terms of who he is appointing to his administration? >> in my judgment, he is doing very well, particularly given all of the questions and concerns that were -- that were out there originally. yes. i think he is appointing some extraordinarily capable people but you're going to have to wait and see how it all plays out. i'll tell you -- i was thinking you were going to ask me a question, what is it that rex tillerson does to -- what does he need to do be a good secretary. >> yes. >> and i was going to tell you take the most important thing that he needs to do is to establish a seamless relationship with his president.
of state unless you have that kind of relationship and, fortunately, i had that kind of relationship with george w. bush. >> but it went way back to the time you both were young men in texas and worked for each other. >> no, we didn't work for each other. >> no, but you supported his campaigns when he supported your ambition. >> it went back 40 years because we had been friends for 40 years. yes it did that. i didn't have as difficult of a job establishing a seamless relationship with my president. but that is the important th >> mr. secretary, i know we want to talk about something that is close to your heart which is the struggle, the plight of elephants around the world and you've called for a worldwide ban on ivory and you say elephants are our collective responsibility as global citizens. what needs to be done? >> the global ban on ivory trade. when i was secretary of state in 1989 and 1990 i pushed for that
endangered species and over the years, the ban began to erode a little bit and exceptions were made here and there. progress was made, by the way, in restoring elephant populations while that ban was in effect. as it eroded, that progress was lost. we run the risk, norah, of waking up here one day with elephants in dire strait, in dire possibility of extinction. i don't want my children and great grandchildren that grow newspaper a world that doesn't have elephants and we have a risk of that today. >> that is an admirable concern. some of the people in the trump administration believe too fee people who have a strong view to protect the planet. and who have strong views about the dangers of global warming.
everybody in the administration. i certainly can't because i don't know what their views are. i do know this. rex tillerson was one of the people -- one of the corporate leaders in the united states who first came out and acknowledged the problem of climate change, and so -- but i can't answer for people who have been appointed to positions like epa and so forth. i don't know the answer to that. >> thank you. >> secretary baker, thanks for taking time this morning. >> thank you for having me. just ahead, what could be a clash of the titans. when some of silicon valley's most powerful ceos visit trump first, it's time to check

"the new york times" reports the government now believes fracking has contaminated drinking water. that is a major change in the study first released last year by the environmental protection agency. current federal rules cover only fracking wells on public land. about 10% of the total. prp has vowed to expand fracking and roll back related rules. >> cbs news national affiliate wtvf reports that murfreesboro, tennessee, were evacuated after dangerous hazardous chemical spill. two semis crashis were reportedly hospitalized with unknown injuries.

john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, here in pacifica, we are right on the western edge of the continent. this apartment building is empty and condemned because it could slide into the pacific ocean because of cliff erosion. over here now, a popular hiking path down to the beach is closed because part of it has disappeared into a huge sinkhole. at 15-foot section of the trail just dropped away into the ocean. the trail is now off mi crews pump concrete and sand into the massive sinkhole. this is only the latest effort to stop erosion of the cliff here that has been falling away for decades. >> we have seen waves up pretty high every year but this is the worst i've seen. >> reporter: the company that owns the land told "cbs this morning," an underground pipe separated and caused leaking water to saturate the ground below. as crews work to stabilize the area, powerful tides are moving in. >> sand just, you know, washed
big cavity. >> reporter: the cliffs here are more than a hundred feet tall and when the base is pounded by high surf, the bluff is undermined. >> when you get the big breakers and ground swells coming in, that really takes a beating on these things. >> reporter: rick gillaza grew up in this area and watched waves erode the pacifica coastline for years. >> i have memories when i was a child out here and i take my wife out here now and try and find the places where my dad and i fished years ago. they are gone. once here are gone too. when major el nino storms hit california in 1998 the bluffs eroded so quickly, residents fled before one home tumbled into the ocean. other houses were knocked down before they, too, fell off the cliff. earlier this year, two apartment buildings were demolished as the bluff beneath themtinued to drop away and a third ocean view apartment complex was condeed
building at cliff's edge. you must have come along here, seen those apartments often. could you ever have imagined that it would be like it is today? hanging off the edge? >> well, gosh. coming out here every do. i mean, there is just nothing stopping this water. >> reporter: now once the sun rise, the view from here is spectacular, which is why there are apartment buildings all along this bluff. the nearest apartment building to here was ocean air and that is perhaps because its previous name conjured up a now too precarious image. it used to be called land's end! >> how about that? john, thank you so much. parents of teenagers might be surprised to learn what their kids really think about having them around. "the new york times" looks into the issue in an online article called "what do teenagers want? potted plant parents." psychologist lisa demoore
here is a complaint one might not expect. they wish their parents were around more often. lisa demoore is a cbs news contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> when i first heard the phrase potted plant, i thought negative. but you take it a different direction? >> i do. what i've learned from teenagers is they like to have their parents around but that doesn't mean they want to interact with their parents. so i think a potted plant makes a good metaphor for that. >> yes. >> what the teenagers are asking for. what we see is the data on the e of the teenager's preference to have the parents there. one of the really interesting thing in the data they separate
connectiveness in the families and even when the warmth and connectiveness is not strong the presents in and of itself is available for teenagers. >> what about the working parents that can't be around as much as perhaps they would like to be? >> absolutely. families with big jobs or who are spread thin. so they can't always be present in the ways they want. so the good news is that teens are resilient, kids are resilient. kids thif under all sorts of conditions. what we see in one of the studies i cite in the article looked att and fly out parents in australia. there is a large sector of parents who work away from home for two to three weeks at a time on oil rigs or mines. they studied those families. their teens were more stressed as you might expect but they were doing just absolutely just fine. i think the point here is families do the best they can with the option they have got, but mostly what we want to do is reassure parents that you just being around is enough. i think often we feel like we
have a conversation. that is not necessarily what the data show. >> i've always been curious about this question. what is it about the teenage to rebel against their parents? >> that terrible side effect of puberty. their job to become independent. i think a normal development a teen's job to push away and a parents' job to pull back. the other reason honestly they get wise to us. you know? at 14, >> bored? >> yes. they realize you're older and noon what dodd all the time. >> i think a pull of being with your friends and they are developing friends and contact and they want to be where they are and doing their thing. >> absolutely. that is their job. what we want to do in that context is for home to be a secure base. you know, that they can explore the world and move away and come back and know that parents are available, if needed. i think one of the challenges with teenagers is needs arise quickly.
one minute and completely not fine the next. for teenagers, i think they feel let's pretend you're not there but don't go anywhere. i might need you. >> what is a world example of being a potted plant parents? >> sure. i collected these from my friends as i was writing them. one just folds laundry every night in a room where her teenagers watch tv. she is around and there is no pressure, no expectation. >> interesting. >> and another one of my friends, his daughter will ask him to sit in the room where she es does his work there quietly. i think that we can just underestimate the value of just being available without an agenda. you know, so many adults, when they are with teenagers, they are bringing an agenda. it's a coach or a teacher or parent. >> i wonder fountain inverse is too. we played that clip from amy poehler and "means girls." does that have a deleterious effect on a relationship? >> not necessarily.
thing. i think what i want to reassure parents is that just because you're not having a deep conversation, just because your teenager is not coming wito you with questions doesn't mean you just being there in the kitchen doing your thing, available if they need you, that is still valuable. >> so could i move into your office? because if you were there, i would just have more fun. >> you want me to be there around you more? >> yes. >> i can do that. >> i could get more done. >> beautiful. you guys are on to something. >> i'll be i don't think you want me as a potted plant, though. you want more than that. >> a beautiful potted plant. >> when two harvard grads couldn't find the right color nude for their skin tones, they turned to technology. ahead, how their breakthrough won the support of nearly a

that are close enough? >> we do offer products that are close enough, because there's still a gap in the market for nude products. >> reporter: we examined that gap. when we went to the websites of ten major retailers, we found few options for women of color. >> the current definition of nude, the beige tones, do not match 84% of the global population. so the opportunity is big to fix this. >> reporter: julie wills is a fashion and beauty editor for "essence" magazine and says it's not a move, btrend, but a movem >> i feel trends are fleeting and i don't want this to be a fleety thing. >> reporter: wem pooem apeople about it on social media. >> i think social media is really the reason why this is all happening. it's really kin of energized people to be more vocal about
