7:03 am
insurance. >> that's really sweet. >> i like that. >> clearly cheering her on. always nice. welcome to "cbs this morning." >> we begin with clear signs that america's covid recovery is slipping away because of the delta variant and those who still refuse to get vaccinated. the u.s. recorded more than 194,000 new cases in a single day friday. the most since late january. missouri is among the hardest hit states, especially in areas with low vaccination rates. hospitalizations in the state have jumped 168% in the past two months. and behind those numbers are many people regretting their vaccine decisions. mireya villareal is in osage beach, missouri. good morning. >> good morning, anthony. the ozarks is a popular tourist destination. it's a hot spot. it brings in more than 5 million people a year. but it has also become a covid
7:04 am
hot spot. and even now as vaccines are becoming politicized, i spoke with a lot of health care workers and they are saying right now the biggest challenge they are facing is a lot of misinformation. >> love you. >> i love you. >> billy baker and her son brody have spent 17 days outside this missouri icu where his father daryl is battling covid and is unable to have visitors. the 31-year-old was originally given a 20% chance of survival and 10 of his relatives tested positive for the virus. >> i was strongly against getting the vaccine. we're a strong conservative family. but that little boy out there is a reason to have the vaccine. >> reporter: just over 40% of missourians are fully vaccinated. the state's daily death rate more than tripled in the past two weeks. at lake regional health system, the chief medical officer dr.
7:05 am
harbaksh sangha says they're fighting their fourth surge. what does that do to your staff? >> we're struggling. it's demoralizing to see that level of sickness and those many deaths. >> reporter: last week they tied their highest number of covid patients since november of 2020. roughly half of july's patients were under the age of 59, nearly all unvaccinated. around town, crowded venues are welcoming guests in droves. the area attracted scrutiny during the early surges of the pandemic for drawing large crowds of visitors with few masks in sight. and now a year later, many here resist getting vaccinated. >> wouldn't wish this on anyone. >> reporter: outside the hospital, natalie, who didn't want to share her last name, camps under a tent for more than eight hours a day. on one side of the window are messages of love and support. on the other side is her 71-year-old mother on a
7:06 am
ventilator. >> you just feel guilt. >> for what? >> that you didn't do more. didn't know more. i respect people's wishes about the vaccine and about wearing masks. i just ask you to give grace to people who disagree with you. >> when i asked natalie if she had gotten the vaccine, immediately she shut down. she wouldn't tell fuss her mother had been vaccinated either. that's how polarizing that question has become in this part of the country. not far from here in st. louis, one of the biggest health systems right now is also reporting a record number of cases. and also, a record number of deaths. gayle? >> mireya, thank you. it's a hot potato question no matter where you are in the question. florida is becoming the latest u.s. epicenter of the pandemic with a surge of new infections from the delta variant there. the state now leads the nation in per capita hospitalizations. more than 10,200 covid patients are now hospitalized. that's the most since this pandemic began and the state hit its highest single day total on
7:07 am
saturday. they had a reported 21,683 new cases. u.s. surgeon general dr. vivek murthy joins us now. despite those numbers in florida, the governor there, ron desantis, says there will be no new restrictions and he'll not mandate masks. when you hear that, does it concern you? >> well, gayle, good morning to you as well. and i am deeply concernrned abo what's hapappening in florida a certainly in many parts of our country with cases rising.g. and i think w what we have seen time and timee again with covid-19 is that it's going to throw curveballs at us. delta variant is the latest curveball. what we have to be ready to do is increase our vaccination rates while using mitigation measures, including wearing masks. that's one of the reasons the cdc revised its guidance last weekek to encourage more mask usage because we know it's a powerful w way to reduce the spread of the virus while
7:08 am
getting vaccination rates up. >> that's the problem when the cdc revised its masks. some think the cdc doesn't know what it's doing. the cdc is being accused of flip-flopping. i know what you all are saying, we're updating the information based on the science that we have. but you have to be very clear about why wearing a mask is so important. vaccinated or not vaccinated now. >> well, absosolutely. let's talk about that for a moment. the main message that the cdc's guidance lasast week was that regagardless off your vaccinati status, wearing masks in public indoor settings is helpful to reduce the spread o of covid, especially if you are living in an area that's got higher substantial transmission of virus. why is that mask help snfl because it not only prevents you from spreading infection to others if you happen to be infected, but it also protects you from getting infection if you happen to be exposed to somebody else. now the good news is that if you are fully vaccinateded, you aren much, much, much better shape. your risks of dying from covid
7:09 am
are dramatically lower. yourur risk of getting sick itsf is also very low. if you do happen to have a breakthrough infection, it's very likely it will be mild and even be symptomatic. what we learned from thehe investigation where there was an outbreak is that people who are -- have those breakthrough infections, a small f folks of vaccinated folks, they are still able to spread the virus just like someone who is unvaccinate chd is why the cdcc recommended that they also wear masks in indoor settings. for people like me who are parents and have unvaccinated children at home it's a basic step to protect those of white house have family members who are vulnerable. >> it's david begnaud. the cdc has said the delta variant is as transmissible as chicken pox. tell us more about that. >> well, it's a really important point and this is one of the features of delta which makes it so concerning and so delta.
7:10 am
the delta variant seems to be the most transmissible version of covid-19 that we have seen to date. it's why it's rapidly become more than 80% of cases. it's why it's driving our case loads up so high. even though we've got 164 million people in our country who are fully vaccinated.d. they are in really good shape and most of them are doing fine. it's those unvaccinated who are struggling and they are primarily the ones g getting infected. but the data about transmission that can take place in that small portion off folks who hav breakthrough infections was also a key part of what the cdc learned and changed guidance. this is what covid does. it throwows curveballs. we've got to be ablee to r resp and change our behavior, our guidance as the science, the data changes. but we have the m most importan tool to get through this pandemic and that iss the vaccine. it's saving lives. and it can save more lives if we can just accelerate our vaccination rates which is already happening, which is good news. we just have to keep going.
7:11 am
>> is the biden administration going to ask more businesses and schools to mandate vaccinations? >> right now what the administration is doing is not telling peoplele what to do but it's certaininly taking action its own backyard so to speak. so the president recently announced that there will be requirementsts now for federal employees to attest to whether or not they are vaccinated. and if they are not vaccinated or do not want to attest onene y or the other, then they'll be required to wear masks in indoor settings. they'll be required to test on a regular basis and they may a al not be ablble to travel f for federal purposes because of the potential increased risk of transmission. so those are measures the federal government is taking as the largest employer in the country. i think what you are going to see are more businesssses, more schools and certainly more health care systems that are putting vaccine requirements in place of their own accord because they're realizing it's one of the most powerfuful thin they can do to make the
7:12 am
workplace safe for their employees as well as for their clients. >> dr. vivek murthy, thank you. >> thank you so much. take care. senators say a long-awaited bill to help rebuild america's infrastructure could pass by the end of this week. supporters from both parties revealed the details of that compromise plan yesterday. in a rare sunday session after weeks of negotiations and setbacks. kris van cleave is on capitol hill. kris, this bill is 2,700 pages long. what's in it? >> good morning. the fact that we even have text in a way is a bit of a win for bipartisanship, at least the idea that here in washington, lawmakers and their staff spent the weekend working to get the language hammered out. the roughly $1 trillion bipartisan package includes money for roads, bridges, railways, broadband and water, traditional infrastructure projects, hard infrastructure projects, if you will. some republicans have criticized the price tag but to gain gop support, there is not an effort
7:13 am
here to raise taxes to pay for, at least raise taxes on the wealthy. the spending is largely paid for by reclaiming past covid aid. getting the bill to the president's desk could still be a bumpy road. it has to get through the senate and then to the house of representatives. the speaker and progressive democrats are insisting on tying the infrastructure bill to the larger human infrastructure bill. that's that $3.5 trillion reconciliation package you've heard people talking about that includes money for everything from child care to climate change. there is no republican support for that larger measure. anthony? >> kris, a moratorium on evictions expired over the weekend. that's going to put millions of renters in jeopardy. what can you tell us about that? >> sure. the cdc put this in place last september. the supreme court in june said in order for it to be extended, passed this weekend, congress would have to act. it didn't happen. it's expired. and now you have the finger pointing on both sides.
7:14 am
in fact, you have progressive democrats up here on the capitol hill that are blaming their own party's leadership for this happening. in fact, some camped out on the capitol steps over the weekend in protest. late last week president biden called on congress to come up with a last-minute solution. there didn't appear to be the votes to pass it and maybe not the time to get it done. nancy pelosi pushed back last night asking the administration to extend the moratorium until october 18th. and this sort of back and forth hot potatoing of who is to blame here is an effort to avoid being the person at fault when it comes to voters coming to the polls here in as soon as about a year for folks up here on the house. democrats on both sides of pennsylvania avenue are calling on states and local governments to push out billions in aid that's already been sent earlier this year to aid renters and landlords. >> all that finger pointing not help anything of those renters in trouble. let's talk sports. we enter the second full week of the tokyo olympics. there will be no gold medal for team usa in women's soccer.
7:15 am
the world cup champions lost to canada this morning, 1-0, in the semifinals. the u.s. team will play for bronze on thursday. gymnastics superstar simone biles will have one more chance to win a medal in tokyo after withdrawing from most of her events over mental health concerns. jamie yuccas is in tokyo covering the olympics. good morning to you. what's the latest on biles? >> good morning, david. she wasn't able to defend her titles in vault or floor this time around. dashing her hopes of becoming the most decorated female olympian of all-time here in tokyo. but overnight, usa gymnastics confirmed biles will be competing in the one event left for the olympian, the beam. however, tonight all eyes were on the floor event. jade carey was the sole american competing on the floor. and she nailed it. her gold medal win followed a setback for usa gymnastics over the weekend when simone biles decided not to compete in the
7:16 am
event after experiencing the twisties. a mental block hurting gymnasts' awareness of their body's position in the air during flips. performance consultant rob irt andrews worked with biles for nearly four years through the rio olympic games. >> what would you advise her to do? >> only interact with people that love and support you. minimize your time with the media. she's told her story. everybody knows what's going on now. she doesn't have to validate or explain it anymore. i wouldld just say, calm it dow. back out quite a bit. >> the four-time gold medalist also withdrew from the final vault event sunday. she was replaced by team usa's mykayla skinner. whose shaky landing but strong overall showing led the 24-year-old to a silver medal. it was an unlikely ending to an incredible career for skinner after going to rio as an alternate in 2016. the olympian fell behind biles and teammate carey in tokyo
7:17 am
qualifiers leaving her out of the competition. she was prepared to get on a plane home when biles dropped out. skinner got a text saying she was back in the olympics. meanwhile, in the pool this weekend, team usa was unstoppable. caeleb dressel and bobby finke won gold in individual events while the men's relay, anchored by dressel, took home gold. in shot put sunday, american raven saunders snagged a silver medal, making an x with her arms on the podium. she said it was a way to speak out about oppressed people. olympics officials are considering penalties against her for a political display at the ceremony. "new york times" sports reporter tariq panja. >> she may be in a bit of trouble, hot water because the ioc say the podium is a place where it must be clean, where none of these types of protests should be made. >> this morning, another big moment in olympic history. weight lifter laurel hubbard becomes the first openly transgender athlete to compete in the olympic sport. her participation in the games
7:18 am
has become a source of controversy, though, with some hailing the sport's inclusivity. others, however, arguing that hubbard has an unfair advantage having competed in men's tournaments friar transitioning. it it's been a talker. >> certainly a lot to talk about in the tokyo olympics. very exciting news about simone biles. >> i'm glad she feels good enough to do that last event. >> her teammates always said that when she was ready, she'd make the decision, which is good to see her back. looking ford that. >> i just love that she came out early and said, listen, i'm having some sort of mental health issues and i'm going to deal with it. take that stigma away. no shame in that game of admitting it and move on p. i like what robert andrew says. you don't have to explain yourself anymore. only surround yourself with people who wish you well. leave all the toxic people over there. >> very good to have the calm to do that in the middle of the olympics, though. a political standoff at the tokyo games. a sprinter says her country tried to send her home after she

some local spca animal welfare groups are criticizing the national aspca for not sharing enough of its fundraising bounty. >> i don't know how they can put their head on a pillow at night knowing that there are so many animals out here that that money could be used for for other things. >> ahead an investigation into spending by the nation's oldest animal welfare charity raises questions about how donor dollars are used. you're watching "cbs this morning." this may l look like a regulalar movie ninight. but if y you're a kikid with d diabetes, i it's mor. it's t the simple e act ofof enjoying g time with h fr, knowining you undederstand your glucocose levels.s. ♪ from prom m dresses to w workouts and d new adventnt res you hopepe the more e you ge the lessss they'llll miss.

7:31 am
spending. jim, what did you find? >> reporter: good morning. headquartered in new york, the aspca employs more than 1,000 people to provide lifesaving programs and services across the country. we found money is not going where many people might think, distributed to local spcas which are unaffiliated with the group and is going where people might not think -- into fundraising. ♪ i will be the answer ♪ the heartbreaking commercials are almost impossible to ignore. sarah mclachlan singing to images of suffering animals and making an urgent appeal for donations to the aspca. >> will you be an angel -- > reporter: after debuting more than ape decade ago, the aspca's revenues tripled, and its staff doubled making the aspca one of the nation's leading animal charities. >> in our minds, the more money we could raise the more animals we could help. so we were happy. >> reporer: jo sullivan was an
7:32 am
executive vice president at the aspca when those commercials came out and was part of the team that created them. now she works for the spca in houston. >> it is frustrating on this side of the table to realize that a bulk of our time and our staff time is spent trying to explain the difference between national and local. we need our donors and the people in our community to know where their money is going. >> reporter: gary rogers can tell you where donations to the aspca are not going. >> i don't know how they can put their head on the pillow at night knowing that there are so many animals out here that that money could be used for for other things. we save thereof lives. >> reporter: president of the nassau charity that fosters animals, investigates abuse, and rescues animals in danger. >> one of the major problems that most spcas have is that the aspca does not fund these agencies. >> reporter: wait, the aspca doesn't fund you at all? >> no. we receive no money at all. >> reporter: we spoke to more than two dozen local spcas
7:33 am
across the country. a few had received grants worth a few thousand dollars from the aspca which they had to apply for. most, like sullivan and houston, and rogers in nassau county, had received nothing. >> no spca across the country is part of the aspca. >> reporter: i would think a lot of animal lovers, pet lovers would assume the aspca is some sort of umbrella organization. >> no, they're not. they're absolutely not even close to it. >> reporter: in 2019, the aspca took in nearly $280 million. the aspca says 77 cents of every dollar goes toward supporting the charity's mission. >> they say, hey, 77 cents out of every dollar goes to program expenses. >> the devil is in the details when one looks at spending. >> reporter: brian mittendorf teaches nonprofit accounting at the ohio state university. he says about 40% of the aspca's operating expenses went toward hands-on help with animals. >> i guess the big question is is there a disconnect between
7:34 am
what donors are putting money into and what that money's being invested in. >> your $19 monthly gift could mean the difference between life and death -- >> reporter: we decided to look at how that $19 donation is being spent. according to the organization's tax forms, we found nearly $8 of each $19 donation went toward hands-on help with animals. nearly $7 went toward mission-related public education and policy which includes telemarketing and direct mailings. another $3.50 went toward other fundraising. the rest toward management. in 2019, the aspca's ceoeo mada morere than $84040,000. that's morore than thehe ceo of amererican red cross, a nonpro ten times bigger than the aspca. >> we urgently need 3,000 new donors so we can rescue more animals. >> reporter: outside of new york and three other citiess w where offers localal services, the asa
7:35 am
has to deploloy its animamal re unit to directly help abused animals. something it did seveven times 202019 to six ststates. the aspca provideded grants to some local animal welfare groups across the country. of the $2 billion it raised since 2008, the aspca gave $147,000 or 7% of the total money raised to those groups. >> sign up for just 63 cents -- >> reporter: during that same time period, we found it spent nearly three times that. at least $421 million on fundraising. >> as an animal lover, you have to make sure and ask yourself do did the animals in my community get my donor dollars or my volunteer time or my donations, and is it going to change what i want it to change in my community. >> reporter: the aspca declined our request for an interview but said in its own 2017 survey that
7:36 am
84% of aspca donors also donated to a local animal charity. what that survey didn't ask was if people understand that local organizations with spca in their name are not in any way affiliated with the national aspca. >> wow. >> a big surprise to me to learn that. i just assumed -- >> so did i -- >> you know what they say about assume. i did assume that they were connected. >> i think that's the question for all donors is your expectation of where you think your money is going, is that where it's actually going. >> what kind of ratings does the aspca get with charity watchdogs? >> charity navigator, one of the watchdogs, said fine in some areas, three out of four stars. but only two out of four on their actual financials. in other words, how they're spending the money. >> do the local spcas like the one you talk about in houston, are they spending more directly on animal care? >> what they're doing is the people donating to those organizations are getting the
7:37 am

this morning the tokyo olympics have been rocked by a political showdown behind the old iron curtain. a sprinter from the former republic of belarus said officials tried to send her home for criticizing them on social media and says her life is at risk. japanese police have blocked her from leaving, and the international olympic committee says she's safe and secure now. jamie yuccas with more from tokyo. >> reporter: belarussian sprinter christina samanaskaya walked into poland's embassy in tokyo where she is seeking asylum. on sunday, she refused to board a plane back to belarus. she says members of the belarussian olympic team tried to remove her from tokyo after she publicly criesed coaches for making her run a relay despite never having raced the event before. she posted this video on social media saying they're trying to get me out of the country without my permission, and asking the international olympic committee for help. in coordination with the ioc,

she was taken under the protection of japanese authorities who refused to send her back to belarus. her supporters say her life would be in danger if she was sent back to belarus where dissent has been stifled under the authoritarian rule of president lukashenko. both lukashenko and his son the head of the belarussian olympic committee were banned from tokyo 2020 and accused of targeting athletes who supported the opposition. >> free speech and dissent is not something that is allowed, is commonplace in belarus. you see how much fear athletes would have, and you could see under though circumstances this athlete had -- just had enough. >> reporter: last year, protests against lukashenko's disputed election win were met with a violent crackdown. in may, the belarussian military forced the diversion of a plane to take custody of opposition

studio. we'll share his love of food. >> i love him, but first here's today's "eye-opener" at 8:00. america is saying the biggest challenge they are facing is a lot of misinformation. >> what we have to be ready to do is increase our vaccination rates while we're using our mitigation metrics, including wearing masks. the fact we even have this is for hard infrastructure projects, if you will. she wasn't able to defend her title this time around, but usa gymnastics confirms that biles will be competing in the one event left for the olympian. >> i guess they had decided
8:02 am
vlad guerrero is out of the lineup, too much of a nuisance. they taped him to the bench. >> sit right here and enjoy the game. >> clearly they have a sense of humor. >> he was moving even when he was taped. we begin this hour with a very disturbing trend in the pandemic, setting up what could become a devastating fall season. on friday the u.s. recorded 194,000 new cases. now, we haven't seen a number that high since winter. think about that for just one second. covid hospitalizations are up threefold from last month, and now internal cdc documents suggest this, that the delta variant is as contagious as the chicken pox. >> the delta variant now accounts for 82% of all u.s.
8:03 am
cases, and while the cdc says vaccinated people can spread it, there is overwhelming evidence the vaccine works against it. here's the data. nearly 165 million americans have been fully vaccinated. of that number, only about .1% or 165,000 people have tested positive for the virus. and of those positive cases, only about 6,000 have been hospitalized. and from that total, about 1,000 patients have died. so for anyone doubting the effectiveness of the vaccine, that's the hard data. here's how dr. anthony fauci explained it on "face the nation." >> if you're vaccinated, you're much, much more protected against getting infected than an unvaccinated who is completely vulnerable. you have a degree of protection against infection. but the credit thing is, john,
8:04 am
if you do get infected, the likelihood of you getting severe cut oupl of the infection is very low. it is much more likely that you will be either without symptoms or minimally symptomatic. so the vaccine is doing what you wanted it to do. it's protecting people from getting sick. >> you know, the evidence cited byby dr. faucici is one momore that bususinesses arare startin require e proof of v vaccinatio from s staff and c customers.. thosose businesseses include d meyeyers' union n square hosospy group.p. he's the c company's founder an ceo. they run iconic restaurants like union city cafe, gramercy tavern and others elsewhere. the group of vaccination policy will go into effect next month. it includes all employees. children under the age of 18 and so are people who eat outside. he also owns shakes shack, but the policy does not apply to
8:05 am
th them. danny meyers joins us now at the table. welcome. >> thank you. good morning. >> how do you verify that somebody is vaccinated? what kind of proof do you want, and how do you confirm that the proof they're giving you is legit? >> there are definitely cards the cdc has provided to show proof of vaccination, and there is also digital proof as well. clear has a wonderful app called health pass, which anybody can get for free. in new york state we have excelsior pass, and we'll take a look at all of those. >> you intend to police this very carefully, checking ids to see that the card actually belongs to that person? >> the most important thing to check is our staff. we care so deeply. we have a pretty sacred responsibility to make sure it's safe to work in our restaurants. keep in mind when you dine in a restaurant, you cannot wear a mask while you're eating and drinking. and our staff members don't have a choice but to serve you. so if our staff members are with you for two, two and a half hours, i want to make sure, first of all, that they're safe, and we're going to do everything we can, obviously, to make sure those people when choose to eat with us are also safe.
8:06 am
>> you're getting a lot of applause, danny, for doing this. many people hope businesses will follow suit and follow your lead, but it also comes with some heat, too. are you concerned about the backlash? was this a tough decision for you to reach? >> it's an easy decision if the question is what's the right thing to do. it's only a tough decision if you're trying to take the easy path. i would say that most people have told us this makes me happier to work here because i know i'm going to be safe. >> makes me happier to go there, yeah. >> thank you. >> no, no, but finish. sorry. >> no, i just want to say i understand there's great reluctance on the part of some people to get the vaccine. i don't understand it personally, but, you know what, if that is who you are, you will probably choose to dine somewhere else, and we have to accept that. >> and trying to do it without judgment, too. i'm really working very hard on not judging people who don't get the vaccine. you're not instituting it right away. why not? >> we wanted to give both our staff the opportunity to be
8:07 am
informed as much as possible, and we wanted to give ourselves the opportunity to do the same thing. look, we don't want to lose one staff member due to this new policy, so we're bringing people into our restaurants on a weekly basis to provide access to vaccinations. we've set aside a spot in our restaurant for that, and we're also bringing in counselors to help people who either have been afraid or who have been misinformed. here's what i'm most excited about. everyone who works for us also has family members. and if we can impact even their families by welcoming their family members in to get vaccinations as well and/or, as we saw last week when we started this program, we had many, many members of our staff come and get the vaccination after they got information, and they go back and tell their families. we could have a good ripple effect here. >> i know you call it a policy rather than a mandate, but i found this interesting. i read before smoking was banned in businesses here in new york
8:08 am
city, you banned in your restaurants like a decade before the city did, right? must have been controversial then. you must have had people up in arms going, what are you doing? >> my mom didn't like it. i will tell you that. >> what did you learn from banning smoking and how might that apply to saying, you can't come in unless you have a vaccination card? >> i think when you have something that is a personal right, like smoking, or at this point like not getting a vaccination, you also have to say, okay, how does that personal right impact other people and what do i choose for my business? one of the great things about business in america is we are not government. we are free enterprise, and we have the right to make the kind of choices we think are right for the people who work for us and the people who dine with us. and americans are free. americans do not have to dine in restaurants that don't welcome non-vaccinated people if they choose not to. >> to the small guy in louisiana whose got a staff of five and a
8:09 am
budget not anywhere as big as yours, he might look at this and go, yeah, sounds great, you're in new york city and it will kill my business, what do you say to him? >> then he won't do it. >> danny, more than 110,000 restaurants closed last year in the pandemic. how is the industry doing now? >> you raise such an interesting point, because what i haven't shared this morning is our organization was on its knees in the last year and a half. in my business we laid off 95% of our staff at the end of march of last year. i don't want to go back, and i know what will happen if we do not make our own restaurants safe and the rates start to tick up. that's when government is going to step in and they're going to impose the closures, the capacity limits. we do not want to go back to that, and that's why this is so important as well. >> i hope other business leaders are listening to you, danny. i'm very biased about this particular topic, because it's scary. you have the vaccine, and it affects other people. if you don't want to get vaccinated, fine, but now you're affecting other people. that matters.

it was disorganized. it was difficult and challenging to find good opportunities out there. >> yeah. you sure handled it really well. you've already -- since you've been home, one of the first things you did was went to the statue of dukamanahopu who helped popularize the sport. a native hawaiian like yourself. why did you make a trip to the statue? >> we -- surfing wouldn't be in the olympics if it wasn't for his dream over a century ago. and surfing wouldn't be where it is today without him and all the people that have come before us. so i just thought it was very important to go there and honor him, share my leis with him. and he's a huge inspiration for me, not only, you know, he was an olympic champion, but i felt that he's one of the best humans ever to face this earth. he's the ambassador of aloha, always true, always kind, genuine, and unconditional with his love. >> you passed that statue almost
8:19 am
every day on your trip to the beach when you were learning surfing even with your dad? >> yes. when i first started surfing, i would -- i learned in waikiki and would pass the statue almost every day. >> carissa, you are really beautiful to watch. i mean, out there you look invincible to me. so since i'll never know what that feels like, what does it feel like when you're out there? and what does this moment mean to you? you are going to go down in the history books, carissa moore, for what you've accomplished. i'm just so happy and so excited for you. so tell me what it feels like when you're out there and what it means to you. >> it is one of the best feelings in the world. and i hope you do get the chance -- >> nope -- >> to one day -- >> nope. nope -- you know how i'll go -- if you give me a piggyback, and i weigh 169 pounds, then i'd go. i'd go with you. >> hey -- if you come to hawaii, i would be happy to take you someday. that would be fun. no, it's something about riding a wave, there's this beautiful
8:20 am
sense of freedom and spontaneity. and you never know what's going to happen because every wave is different. and you know, being in the ocean you have to be completely present. in this world today, i think everything's moving so fast, it's very refreshing to be in a place where you have to be present because otherwise mother nature's going to slap you in the face. >> i've heard you saying about on the ocean is your happy place. so what does it mean to you to have this big accomplishment now? >> oh, it's huge. i'm very -- it's been an emotional last couple of -- last week really. it was a really special, overwhelming moment. you know, it was something so special to represent the united states of america, to surf, and my home in hawaii, to surf for something bigger than myself. i think it was an amazing moment for surfing. i think all the athletes did a tremendous job displaying our sport. >> i think of you as a baby girl with your dad at 5 years old learning to surf. what do you tell baby girls who are watching and want to be just
8:21 am
like you? >> you guys can do anything with hard work and passion and with heart. you can do anything you dream of. so i just want to encourage those girls to dream big. sky's the limit. and have fun doing it, and share it with people. >> i got a kick out of hearing about your husband. he was so nervous he watched you on the phone in the car and was screaming so loud they could hear him screaming outside the car. i'll bet that was fun to get back to him. clearly a big victory -- >> yeah. so great to be back with him and the dogs. it was definitely different competing without him by my side. i'm happy to be here with him. it's kind of our good luck thing whenever we're not together, he watches by himself. and all my family got together to watch. so he's like -- i wasn't catching any waves in the final, and when he went to the car, things started going my way. >> cheering you on. you got another big thing coming up in nine days in mexico. we're cheering you on. >> carissa moore, as gayle said, we are rooting for you. congratulations. >> thank y you so much.
