trump is lashing out this morning at his own party. the nominee tweeted a short time ago despite winning the second debate in a landslide, every poll, it is hard to do well when paul ryan and others give zero support. the latest presidential poll shows hillary clinton leads trump 46% to 35% in a four-may matchup. the poll was taken after sunday's debate but after a video showing trump making sexual comments about women. >> and for the first time chris christie, a trump supporter said that trump's comments i think that he should have been more direct and much more focused on saying i'm sorry and only i'm sorry. house speaker paul ryan saying he will no longer defend or campaign with donald trump. yesterday, trump said his comments about women were inappropriate but they were, quote, locker room talk.
a new round of e-mails shows hillary clinton's press machine. wikileaks revealed will 2,000 e-mails taken from john podesta. clinton's communications director wrote in january, quote, i like nothing with bernie on wall street at a staff level for the purposes of muddying the waters and throwing them off their game a bit but i don't know that it is the most effective contrast for her. >> president obama's former speechwriter advised the campaign not to attack sanders' i dealism. he told them how it would back fire in the debate years earlier.

women, or a satisfying one?" she said it may end up owing some of the margin of her victory to outrage over mail ledgerry. jody is a cbs news contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> you know, as we were going into the debate on sunday night. that was one of the talks, the treatment of women has now become the centerpiece of the discussion in this campaign. >> yes, and in response to that, we say, i can't believe we're still having this conversation all these years later, do we still need to litigate the basic respect to which women are treated? but on the other hand, it seems like a really important national conversation based on the way people are responding. there's a unanimity to this conversation that seems almost unique, right. how many other national moments can you remember where basically edge has stood up and said this
is not over. >> and why is that? >> basically hillary clinton has been at the center of this for more years than anybody? >> well, granted, this is a very favorable position for her to be in politically. you have to wonder if some part of her getting ready for the debate this weekend said how many more national debates about male letchry could i get myself in the middle of. >> no woman wants to live that in the public eye. >> my colleague wrote lots of women have had to confront evidence of potential wrongdoing of affairs and whatnot. has anyone had to do it while trying to look presidential. >> and in part outrage of that male behavior, would you find that depressing or poetically satisfying? >> i think people are divided on
that. trump's long-threat nuclear option where he decided to confront bill clinton with allegations about his past, he tried to actually stage a confrontation between bill clinton and his accusers on sunday night went nowhere. it collapsed. the root seemed to have -- >> it did get everybody talking about it, though. that stunt caused people to talk about that stunt. rather than perhaps his performance. or more details about the case. >> that's true. but, you know, i think part of the reason it may not have been taken as seriously as he wanted is it was so clearly done in the spirit of trying to erase his own problems from the tape that came out friday night. but it didn't necessarily seem like an airing of such information. >> and can you espouse on why this is resonating what he's done? >> well, first of all, we need to look at the context, right.
which was for a lot of republicans they saw that the trump candidacy was going nowhere. it wasn't good. it was attractsing a lot of attention. for some way, this tape provided the perfect excuse for anyone who wanted to get offer the trump train. this is the last chance to get off. but also, some people think it was the specific language that was in that tape which was so incredibly offensive. the tone that suggested sexual assault. it seems to have finally been -- >> you and your colleagues, jodie, specifically it was about white women that got people upset? >> there's a very interesting piece in the "times" hypothesis that white woman in a position that cannot attack. but white women are

very. my source said just because it was fact really incorrect what was being stated. he felt the need first thing monday morning to set the record straight which is why he released a summary of his 2014 tax return which spelled out the facts and numbers and debunked any idea that he had taken a loss to not pay taxes. >> basically used the point that he had not used the carry-forward for his personal income taxes? >> correct. specifically, my source says he never has, in the 73 years he's been filing taxes. >> but the type of deduction that donald trump is being criticized for is call a net loss-carry forward. it's had bipartisan support in the past and many businesses and personal people you know, correct? >> totally legal. again, we don't know how many people have used it in this way.
but it's totally legal. so that is true. it's very simple. he took a big loss. and the loss says that you can use that loss to offset future income. so it's a very simple math. >> mellody, just a minute on that, why does that exist within the law? >> why does it exist? it basically goes back to tax code for a long, long time. it's basically a way for people to recoup losses they have had. >> for instance, someone who owns a lawn mowing company. if they had a year where there were floods and they lost all the money. then the next year they wouldn't have to pay taxes? >> as much in taxes, yet. >> we're getting very technical here, but that's true. lots of private companies where buffett is the ahead of a big public company where we have a lot more transparency. >> melody, here's something that's not so technical. warren buffett has called on
trump to release his tax returns. he said he can't do it under odd zit. >> yeah, he said he's under audit. he said you show me yours, i'll show you mine. we just need a very small section to understand his financial picture. his son has said he's not releases hig returns because their 25,000 pages long. this is what we need, page one it would tell us income and any laces. page two, it would tell us how much he pays in taxing and we could compute his tax rate. section "a," it include any charitable deductions. or any capital gains or losses he has had some asset sales. a building, stock. it's pretty simple. that's all we'd need. we'd have 80% to 90% of his financial picture just from that very limited amount of information. >> and mellody, he says that the financial disclosure forms he
filed with the ftc covers that, is that true? >> no, i actually went and looked at the filing. the tax return is spink. the financial filing talks in generalities and estimates. >> is warren buffett now saying, donald trump keep your my name out of your conversation. >> basically, that's what he's says. >> thank you very much, mellody. a man in a red sweater stole the spotlight at sunday's presidential debate. next, audience member, kenneth bone, talks about his instant celebrity status. and the wardrobe malfunction that led to his choice of this outfit. that's going viral. you're watching "cbs this morning." i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler

i tried to write about race multiple times in my career and i failed because i couldn't come at it from an authentic point. it's not my story to tell, in many ways. it was this lawsuit that happened in michigan that really changed things for me. a nurse with 20 years of experience on a labor and delivery ward who delivered a baby. then the father called in his supervisor and said i don't want her or anyone like her to touch my kid. push up the sleeve and revealed a swastika tattoo. she ended up getting a payout after suing this man. what if this nurse was the only one alone with the child when something went wrong. what if, as a result of that, she ended up on trial with a white public defender who like me or my friends would never say i'm a racist. to tell the point of view so that ever narrator had to
examine their blizzards about power and racism and power. >> i looked and said jodi picoult is still white, right? >> i had women with over 1$100 hours they share their successes and fears and failures. they vetted the voice of ruth in my book. i couldn't have written the book without them and i shouldn't are written the book without them. it comes from a quote that is attributed to martin luther king jr., he said if i can not do great things, i can do small things in a greats way. racism is big and messy and systemic and institutional it's both perpetuated and extended in this act. in the novel, as these two women, the public defender and nurse begin to build a
relationship. >> considering all that went into this book and considering all that's happened in society, how do we have a meaningful conversation about race that does more than than has been done in the past? >> i think one of the most important things that i personally learned is that racism isn't just prejudice. it's also about power. although it's very easy for 20us see the headwinds of racism the way a certain skin color can impede success in society. it's a little harder to tap into the tailwinds of racism which is the way people who have lighting color skin get advantages from that. i think if this novel can do anything, hopefully, it can provide a vocabulary that is a springboard. we need to talk about racism. i will make mistakes. it's better to make mistakes and move forward. and understand that we all have it. all of pus. >> how did you capture the voice of the skinheads? you said sometimes, you felt like you had to take a shower.
