7:00 am
the weekend? dreaming about saturday and sunday? never too early. >> thank you for watching kpix5. the news continues all day. >> and cbs this morning coming up good morning to our viewers in the west and welcome to "cbs this morning." it is tuesday, april 13, 2021. i'm gayle king with tony dokoupil and anthony mason. we've got breaking news. the cdc and fda are recommending a pause in the johnson & johnson vaccine out of an abundance of caution. dr. david agus tells us about the issue under investigation. the police video shooting of daunte wright fuels outrage in minnesota. and the defense takes stage at the derek chauvin trial after 38 prosecution witnesses in 11 days. tearful testimony from george floyd's brother closed out the
7:01 am
prosecution's case. and in our school matters series, teachers tell us about the challenges they faced during the pandemic and passion required to deal with them. what they discovered about themselves and their students. first, here's today's "eye opener." it's your world in 90 seconds. >> oh, no! [ bleep ]! >> i just shot him. >> after police in a minneapolis suburb shot and killed a black man, daunte wright, during a traffic stop. >> the police chief said one of the officers pulled out her gun by mistake, thinking it was her taser. >> the medical examiner ruling wright's death a homicide. >> another day of testimony in the trial of derek chauvin. >> no reasonable officer would have believed that that was appropriate, acceptable or reasonable use of force. >> president biden said he's prepared to negotiate on the size of his infrastructure plan. >> i'm confident everything will work out perfectly.
7:02 am
>> the fda and cdc are calling for an immediate pause on the use of the johnson & johnson single-dose vaccine. >> all of that -- >> stephen curry just got himself a record on the all-time warriors scoring list. >> and all that matters. >> i would like to do a quick speed round. mitch mcconnell? >> stealth vader. >> previous president? >> oh, that former guy? >> yeah. >> a little crazy. >> ted cruz? >> lucifer in the flesh. >> on "cbs this morning." >> university of kentucky sent out a bunch of acceptance emails to incoming freshmen the other day. the only problem being the emails were sent out by mistake to 500,000 students. imagine never applying to the university of kentucky, getting accepted and then even worse, getting rejected. it is like you're walking down the street and somebody comes up
7:03 am
to you and says, i will not marry you! this morning's "eye opener" is presented by progressive, making it easier to bundle insurance. >> that's more than a mistake. hopefully you find that out before you get to the aisle and they go i don't want to marry you. as you wake up in the west, we have breaking news you need to know about, it's affecting the and tire coronavirus vaccination effort. the cdc and fda said this morning the johnson & johnson vaccine should be put on hold in this country. the single-dose vaccine hard already been given to 6.8 million americans. >> investigators are looking into six cases of blood clots in women, all under the age of 48 who received the vaccine. one of the women died from that dangerous condition. in a statement johnson & johnson says, no clear causal relationship has been established between the vaccine and the cases of blood clots. the cdc and fda are holding a news briefing right now. cbs news medical contributor dr.
7:04 am
david agus is with us. david, good morning. how significant of a setback is this? >> anthony, it's a punch in the gut. this is data that is remarkably rare but it is a condition we have to take notice of because a similar vaccine, adenovirus vaccine from oxford in europe saw similar blood clots. now there will be an advisory committee meeting it only to look at the catastrophes to determine if they're related to the vaccine and try to develop a plan to prevent them and treat them when they occur. >> as we mentioned, david, 6.8 million people in this country already received this vaccine. how concerned should they be? >> obviously, it will cause a panic in anybody who has it but it all happens in the two-week window, so day 6 to day 13 after the vaccine. if there's severe abdominal pain or headache, you should be evaluated by the doctor. but, again, it is remarkably rare. i have to say this occurs much
7:05 am
more frequently when you get the virus, this kind of blood clot, then when you get the vaccine. so this is something we're aware of and we will figure out a strategy to deal with but we have to keep the vaccine rollout going. >> i want to followup on what anthony just said. i've gotten the vaccine. if i go past, you said 13 days, i should be okay, is that what you're saying to people? >> yeah, you should be okay. >> so don't worry? >> again, it is very rare. i'm getting a lot of email already from people in the last two weeks who had the vaccine and are concerned. if you have severe abdominal pain or headache, get your doctor to evaluate and they can draw a blood test and look at your platelet count and there's an antibody test for the particular reaction here. this is very rare but it does happen. if it's treated early, it shouldn't be an issue. >> if you had no symptoms at all, david, you're okay with the j&j vaccine, correct? >> absolutely. so the majority of people, there's not an issue. >> and does it affect more women than men? >> yeah, we are seeing this
7:06 am
predominantly younger, premenopausal women, so age 18 to 48 in the united states. again in europe with astrazeneca, predominantly younger women. >> dr. agus, we're talking about one of the three vaccines approved for emergency use here in the united states, losing it at least on a temporary basis. what could that mean for the broader effort to vaccine everyone? >> well, there is no wore kwlier with the pfizer and moderna vaccine, make that clear. this next couple of weeks, there was a low supply of j&j vaccine because of a manufacturing issue. so the key is over the next several weeks we develop a strategy in the nation to use the supply of j&j safely rolling out. whether that be restricting it to men or developing a preventive strategy for this particular side effect will be critical but we have to keep vaccinating the country. again, this kind of condition is much more common with the virus than the vaccine. we have to protect people. >> dr. david agus, thank you very much. and this morning's announcement caught state health
7:07 am
officials off guard and also pushed the biden administration into action. one state official tells cbs news this could add to vaccine hesitancy and make it harder to vaccine the maximum number of adults by the summer. nancy cordes is at the white house for us. nancy, good morning to you. july 4th was the target for some return to normalcy we heard from the white house just a month what are officials saying there now? >> tony, they're saying they're not sure what this means because they don't know how long this pause and use of the j&j vaccine is going to last. this is one of the things that the fda is going to be taking a look at and what administration official told me this morning, the fda is an independent, scientific body. it's not coordinating with the white house. so among the questions that white house officials and covid task force now have is, what action, if any, will the fda end up taking? is it going to restrict the use of this vaccine to certain
7:08 am
groups? is it going to simply advise doctors keep an eye out for this very rare side effect so doctors know what to do when they see it? or will the fda ultimately do nothing at all? will the fda only issue this pause for a couple of days or will it last weeks? those are all unanswered questions right now. you pointed out that state officials were caught off guard. there were some state officials who learned of this pause in the j&j vaccine from reporters this morning and part of the reason for that is administration officials, we're told, were only informed within the past 12 hours or so. for example, hhs secretary xavier becerra was informed last night. and so they're still working through what all of this means this morning. >> independence is good in some areas but sometimes you want coordination and sharing of information. we can't say for certain noemt wh ty at the moment what this means for vaccinations, but what might
7:09 am
contingency will the white ouse follow in the days ahead? >> the white house just put out a statement a short time ago, tony, and this is what they're saying. they're arguing this news will not affect overall vaccine supply of the three vaccines very much because the j&j vaccine currently only makes up of 5% of recorded shots in arms to date. part of the reason for that is the supply of the j&j vaccine had been dwindling in recent weeks. that's one of the things that's going to be discussed in a white house call with governors today. one of the things we've been hearing that's of great concern to state officials, governors around the country is how this is going to contribute to vaccine hesitancy, even if the j&j vaccine is ultimately proven to be perfectly safe. we know from polls that about 20% of american adults are worried about getting the vaccine. one southern official told us this morning, i can't overstate how bad this is going to be when it comes to convincing people to get not just the j&j vaccine but
7:10 am
any vaccine. that is going to be a big issue going forward. >> we should remind people, the other two approved vaccines have had no issues reported. as our dr. david agus pointed out this morning, the complications tied to the virus are still more frequent than the ones tied -- or at least reported, with the johnson & johnson vaccine, important to note. nancy, thank you very much. >> we need to keep reminding people of that. and now to the growing outrage this morning over the death of daunte wright in brooklyn center, minnesota. outrage is the word here. two nights in a row there are clashes between police and protesters demanding justice for daunte wright who was shot and killed by a police officer during a traffic stop. newly released body cam footage shows what unfolded. of officials say the officer involved meant to reach for her taser and they're calling it an accident. omar villafranca is in brooklyn center right now. omar, what is it like there this morning? last night was very tense.
7:11 am
>> gayle, it is quiet right now as you can see behind me but the national guard is still here after another night of protests and around 40 people were arrested. we now know the name of the officer who shot wright, kim potter. 26-year veteran of the department. the police chief said she meant to grab her taser but instead grabbed her gun. >> my heart is literally broken and i could never get that back. back. >> and i can never say good-bye to him. >> reporter: as darkness fell on brooklyn center, clashes between
7:12 am
protests and police continued outside their headquarters. >> you're in violation of the curfew. >> reporter: the unrest followed the release of body cam video showing the moments leading up to wright's death. after pulling wright over for an expired registration tag, officers learned he had an outstanding warrant stemming from two misdemeanor charges. when the officers tried to handcuff wright, he struggled to get back in his car. that's officer kim potter yelling she will tase wright, but instead she's holding her gun, which she then fires. >> i just shot him. >> reporter: wright traveled a few more blocks before hitting another car and died at the scene. police chief jim gannon -- >> from what i viewed from the officer's distress and immediately after this was an accidental discharge that resulted in the tragic death of mr. wright. i need to be transparent and forth wright. >> reporter: oiv potter has been placed on administrative leave
7:13 am
but some people are calling for her badge, including mayor mike elliott. >> we cannot afford to make mistakes that lead to the loss of life of other people in our profession. >> reporter: president biden chimed in yesterday calling this whole event tragic and urging protesters to remain calm and peaceful. keep in mind, this is happening a few miles away from the trial of former officer derek chauvin, who is charged in the murder of george floyd. incidentally, there will be a press conference with the wright and floyd family later on this afternoon. gayle? >> omar, there's never a good time for this kind of thing but it couldn't be worse timing right now. you mentioned officer kim potter is a veteran of the force 26 years, which makes it even harder to understand how you get a gun and taser mixed up. what else can you tell us about her? >> 26 years on the force is something we've learned, "the star tribune" is reporting she was a union head and training
7:14 am
officer who was training an officer the day of the incident, which brings back the question. if she's on the force 26 years and charged with training younger officers, how can she confuse a heavy handgun with much lighter taser, we don't know. >> are the other officers saying anything at this time? >> most of the time they're behind the barriers in full riot gear so as far as communication, it's slim to none. >> omar villafranca, thank you. we will talk to you a little bit later on. as omar alluded to, just ten miles from where daunte wright was killed, the derek chauvin trial continues today with the defense set to present its arguments. yesterday chauvin's attorney raised concerns over how the brooklyn center unrest could affect the jury. jamie yuccas is outside the courthouse in minneapolis. jamie, good morning. >> good morning, anthony. after more than two weeks, the prosecution is expected to rest its case today. yesterday prosecutors focused on appealing to the jurors emotions and put george floyd's younger brother on the stand.
7:15 am
>> he showed us how to treat our mom and how to respect our mom. he loved her so dearly. i miss both of them. >> reporter: jurors listened as he described growing up with his big brother and the joy he brought their family. >> he was so much of a leader to us, he used to make the best banana mayonnaise sandwiches and syrup sandwiches because joyce couldn't cook. >> reporter: cbs news legal analyst rikki klieman says the younger floyd was used as what's called a spark-of-life witness, meant to show the jury how much george floyd's life influenced others. >> this was obviously very, very painful for him and his family
7:16 am
and jurors are people, they can feel that kind of pain. >> reporter: earlier on the stand, cardiologist jonathan rich echoed previous testimony and said george floyd's heart sopped because of low oxygen levels caused by ex-officer derek chauvin's actions. before the trial resumed monday, the defense asked to sequester the jury because of the fatal police shooting of daunte wright. >> i think brings it to the forefront of the jury's mindset that a verdict in this case is going to have consequences. >> reporter: but the judge denied the motion, a move rikki klieman disagrees with. >> they can't get away from it when they go to the courthouse and can't get away from it when they go home. it seems the only reasonable thing to do would have been to sequester them on monday. >> reporter: the defense is expected to begin its part of the case today. it's not clear how many people they'll call to testify or if chauvin himself will take the stand. the judge told the jury it should expect closing arguments
7:17 am
this coming monday and jurors will be sequestered once dl deliberation begins. >> jamie, thank you. will derek chauvin take the stand? >> in the beginning experts said no way he will take the stand but after the last 2 1/2 weeks and testimony we heard that has been -- many say very damning to derek chauvin -- >> from many cases his fellow police officers. big difference. >> good point. people say he may have no choice but to take the stand. it will be interesting to see what happens. a police shooting inside a knoxville tennessee high school left students, staff and parents badly shaken yesterday. police say officers responded to reports of someone possibly with a gun at austin east magnet high school, as they tried to arrest the student in a rest room. they say he shot an officer in the leg. police opened fire and killed the student. the school went on lockdown and parents rushed to the scene to meet their children. police are investigating why the student allegedly brought a gun
7:18 am
to school. >> scary stuff. ahead -- the worsening covid crisis in brazil. we're in the country's largest city where the poor are suffering because of a local variant that's starting to spread in this country too. right now it is now 17 minutes after the hour. it's almost 18 minutes after the

manuel bojorquez is in brazil's city sao paulo. >> reporter: one of the reasons they're so concerned here in brazil, the more it spreads, the more contagious.
7:32 am
in the country's most densely populated areas social distancing is practically impossible. this is sao paulo's second largest favela, the name giving to sprawling low-income neighborhoods in the shadows. life was tough here before the pandemic. but the virus has amplified the poverty. a crippled economy means food insecurity affects more than half of brazil's population. antonio told me if he didn't accept the community meals. he did this meaning robbing people would be the other option. because there's no opportunity. >> no. >> reporter: in this worst moment, i tried to give him the best of myself to other people. marcus desantis works for the nonprofit that delivers about 3,000 lunches here every day. >> it is the responsibility of

overwhelmed the health care system. so even people who can get treatment for heart disease may not get it, and unfortunately, end up becoming another death. it is pain compounded by fear that things won't soon get better. brazil is also facing troubles on the vaccine front. this month, the health ministry cut its expectations for v icken exposure to toxic burn pits overseas. we'll be right back. ♪ everybody deserves ♪

♪ lawmakers from both parties will join veterans today to announce a new effort in congress to help service members who say that toxic burn pits made them sick. more than 3 million u.s. veterans may have come into contact with dangerous fumes while serving the overseas bases, where waste ignited by jet fuel was burned in those giant pits, former "the daily show" host jon stewart is doing more. kris van cleave is on capitol hill. kris, this is a big story. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, gayle, think of these burn pits as basically giant dumpster fires spewing toxic fumes.

"the talk" is live again and the panel wasted no time diving into the race-related drama that led to sharon osbourne's sudden departure. the cbs show was on hiatus after osborne got into a heated debate with our colleagues. she was defending piers morgan over his criticism of meghan, the duchess of sussex. osborne later apologized to viewers said that she had, quote, panicked got blind sided and offensive. yesterday she discussed the incident and would talk about her reaction to the comment. >> i knew i had to be an example for others to follow, because i didn't want to be perceived as the angry black woman.
7:50 am
and that really scared me. i didn't want to be that. and i wanted to remain calm and remain focused. and it's difficult to go back to that day because i just feel the trauma. >> underwood said she hasn't spoken to osborne since the incident. although she confirmed osborne has reached out to her. co-host elaine welteroth talked about why the backlash against meghan was so impactful. >> i think a lot of women see themselves in meghan markle. when you deny a woman, woman of color their truth and their experiences you're not just denying them, you're denying them, every woman, woman of color who sees themselves in this person's story. >> so, what do you think? >> well, i thought it was tough yesterday, to be honest with you. listen, sharon as bosbourne was to that show's success. she played a key role in that show's success. i don't think we should forget

that. i understand underwood's position that, wait a minute, you can't talk to me like that. and i understand sharon osbourne's stance that she felt blind sided. they both called themselves friends. they both said we're friends and it exploded on the air and now it's over. that just made me sad but the show was successful and she played a big part of that. i was sorry to see it. i was glad they had the conversation. >> the conversation needed to be had. i thought elaine's comments -- i wanted to play that, a lot of people wondered why it became so controversial, elaine centered that. a lot of people saw themselves in that attack. >> she did. can i talk about this dog? >> please. >> we neat something a little light. >> this chihuahua you're about to meet pretty much despises everyone, that's not me saying that, that's his foster mom.

♪ welcome back to "cbs this morning." it's that time again. time to bring you some of the stories that are the talk of the table this morning and tony is taking the lead toda ceo pay. that's my punch line. it's been going on for a long time, people did expect with 2020, with the pandemic, hiring freezes and pay freezes there was a possibility it would go down. however, anthony, as you anticipated, "the wall street journal" has done analysis and found that ceo pay is headed for another record in 2020. >> yeah.
8:31 am
>> up by nearly $1 million. the median pay, that's the 50 percentile. the bigger picture, 948% increase in ceo pay. the typical worker, meanwhile, seeing only an 11% increase in their pay. >> how do they explain that? >> companies have approved packages. >> they don't have to explain it, that's part of the problem. >> companies are deciding this is okay. >> yeah. >> meanwhile, republicans and democrats in huge majorities, more than 80%, think this is out of whack. >> it doesn't make any sense. >> upward it goes. >> they're doing okay. my story is about a maryland woman who had to cancel her wedding reception because of the pandemic. that happened to a lot of people. she had a small wedding she got to wear her wedding dress, very few people saw it, she said i want people to see my reception gown, too. this is what she did, she got
8:32 am
her covid vaccine, she showed up at the university of maryland medical center in the dress. she said i wanted a chance to celebrate. i didn't get a chance to see that many people. she said this is the most people i've seen in a long time. her name is sarah. she said she had no idea the joy it would bring to people but it did. and sarah, it's a very pretty dress. >> it is. >> thank you for that. >> makes me feel embarrassed. i worry a t-shirt to get my vaccine. >> but it was an important vaccine. >> yeah, it was, no, she looks great. vlad talked earlier this is kind of a heavy day on the show. >> yeah. >> on heavy days, you know what i need, penguins? >> puppies? >> puppies, too, but i got penguins. this is the special march of penguins going down to the sea.
8:33 am
12 penguins going back to the coast in argentina. they suffered from malnutrition and anemia. they lost feathers, enough that they couldn't survive in the cold and water. they had to be given a new diet, nursed back to health. i love what the reuters writer wrote the boot high penguins swept down a sandy beach paused for boaters with onlooking beachgoers before taking the plunge. >> did you notice tony has done a couple penguin stories? >> listen. it would have been sharks every time. i'll be here. >> yeah, something about them. >> enough frivolity, let's go back. >> unfortunately, right. turning back to the death of daunte wright in brooklyn center, minnesota. tragedy with too many parallels. it was six-year-old that freddie
8:34 am
gray was fatally hit. he told an officer i can't breathe just as eric garner had done the year before and just as george floyd in the last moments alive in 2020. >> in the book "5 days, the fiery reckoning of america. wes moore wrote a book with erica green. now is the time to ask how much have we learned he's ceo of robinhood foundation, one of the nation's largest nonprofit organizations. wes, good morning to you. your day job at robinhood foundation and your job as author they actually intersect. poverty and racism are related. i want to get to that. what have we learned in the year since freddie gray? i'd love for to you answer it. >> well, the honest answer is not enough.
8:35 am
because we look at the fact that this book is coming out now. and people say, well, isn't it timely that a paper back of "5 days" is coming out now. and the honest answer is, name a time when it wouldn't be timely. that's the issue. we keep on seeing these things that are happening. so this really is both about how are we addressing the immediate incidents that we continue to see. the death of mr. wright is not just unfortunate, it is inhuman main and it needs to be dealt with and allowing the incidents to happen and just new names being placed afterno hash tags. >> wes, what happens next, what do we do for that underlying system that you talk about in the book? >> well, i think we need to have a coordinated coordination and action plan that includes community and law enforcement that includes changing policies
8:36 am
and laws. we look at in my home state of maryla whend we just actually had a police reform bill that was actually vetoed by our republican governor but overturned by 70% of the legislature which puts together common sense laws such as making body cameras mandatory for police. and a police officer who has multiple infractions is getting moved to departments, those departments should know about them. they have to be dealt with not just dealing with improper interaction between policing and community, but actually really fostering a better relationship between police and community as well. >> when you talk about improper interaction, keep thinking about daunte wright. we've been talking about it all morning. it started as a traffic stop because of expired tags allegedly. they found out he had a misdemeanor outstanding warrants and it escalated from there. and from there, the police
8:37 am
officer said she had a taser instead of a gun. you're a military guy, wes. when you hear that, what do you think? >> i'm baffled, honestly, because if -- i have so much training in this, that if someone hands me a weapon, i can tell whether it's loaded or unloaded. i can tell a caliber. that's how much training i have in marksmanship and arms because they knew that they were trusting me to go out and make life or death decisions every single day. there's something in military where we call muscle memory. basically, we want you to do things enough in high-stress situations there isn't a question, you just know properly how to respond. and the idea that you cannot tell a difference or could not make a quick reaction difference between eye firearm or taser, meaning there was not enough training or preparation for to you handle either of those devices. that's what hurts us. >> she's a training officer. she was training a rookie that day. that's what i find so
8:38 am
mind-boggling. but let's talk about freddie gray. we all remember this case. freddie gray is from baltimore. you're from baltimore. you said freddie gray is the first funeral you went to for someone you didn't know that we should really pay attention to freddie gray's life. why did you go to his funeral? and what is it about him that you want us to know? >> i went to freddie gray's funeral because this is a story i have a local connection with. this was a really big deal in baltimore and around the globe. but it also did strike me, gayle, the fact i was sitting here at a funeral of someone i didn't know in life. that was part of the problem. most of the people inside the church that day did not ever have a single conversation with freddie. when you look at freddie's life, if you look at the fact that this was a young man who was born premature and underweight. it was a young man born in deep poverty. his mother lived in deep poverty
8:39 am
her whole life. she also battled addiction for much of her life. when freddie was born, he was already exposed to heroin. when he gained enough weight to go out of the hospital, they moved to baltimore, that home were cited in a lawsuit because of levels of lead inside that home. freddie gray was born underwater, premature, exposed to heroin. born in deep poverty and lead poisoned. and by that time in his life, he's 2 years old. if you look at why he was even arrested that day, he was arrested for making eye contact with police. in a high-poverty area which only in some areas of this country is a crime. and that's the issue. >> and that is the intersection of poverty and race. you say that each of these circumstances increases the probability that he's in that place at that time. but at one point, in one of the
8:40 am
most powerful sentences in the book, you make the point that the system in some communities is its own kind of choke hold. but while we have you, because you're a veteran and because we've been reacting to that video out of virginia with the lieutenant in the vehicle and pepper sprayed, what was your react, what's going through your mind as you watch that? >> horror. absolute horror. and it's horror in the fact that everything i was taught and told. everything that i know. i have a 7-year-old son. and i will express to him, if you happen to have an interaction with police, you know, keep your hands in clear sight. don't make quick movements. call them sir. you know, you show that all of these things to include what car you're driving. your cv, your resume. the uniform you're wearing, it did not matter. in fact, every time he tried to say i don't understand -- or his response, i'm afraid to leave the vehicle. the officer's response back to
8:41 am
him was, you should be. >> it's that the thing. >> that alone -- >> exactly. >> that alone is an intolerable and fireable offense. >> it certainly did strike me, wes, every black parent of color, i don't care if you have $2 or $2 million has had the conversation with their sons this is what you do if you're stopped by the police. >> that's right. >> he did everything correctly and still ended up that way. i'm so glad he's alive. but i can't imagine the trauma that the lieutenant is feeling today. it's heartbreaking to me. before we go, i have to ask you this when do we start calling you, i don't want to stumble on this, gubernatorial candidate wes moore? when should we start doing that? >> well, i'm very seriously exploring the governor's race in maryland right now as i'm getting ready to exit 4 1/2, really proud successful years ago at robin hood. the reality is we're at a turning point. and there are big crucial issues
8:42 am
that we have to discuss. so, as i'm really going through and thinking about what are the big solutions, our ability to think big on these issues i think is now. so, it's something that i am very seriously exploring as i'm getting ready to step away from my role as ceo. >> wes moore, we'll be watching. when you're ready to announce, you know you have a place with tony dokoupil, anthony mason and gayle king. we thank you v
8:43 am
you buckle up, start the car, put it in gear and take off. next thing you know, the phone is in your hand. stop! you should be holding the wheel, not holding the phone. it's a busy world out there, and we're all in it together. go safely, california.
