Trump's proposal

Less than 24 hours after President Obama went on national television to urge Americans to reject a war between America and Islam, Donald Trump took a step in the opposite direction and called for the "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States." But does he have a legal leg to stand on?


Conservative politicians, including some of the Republican Party's leaders in key election states, took to the airwaves and social media to blast Donald Trump's suggestion that he'd ban Muslims from entering the United States as unconstitutional and against the grain of American history and society. One party veteran even seemed perplexed by Trump's popularity in light of his rhetoric.

Real bravery

Shannon Johnson, who later died of his own injuries, has been hailed as a hero for comforting a co-worker during the San Bernardino attack. His girlfriend tells CBS News about the relationship cut short by the massacre, and how she learned of Shannon's death -- and his bravery right up until the final moments of his life.

San Bernardino

The terrorist attack on San Bernardino is the latest -- and cruelest -- blow for a metropolis still reeling from a 2012 move to declare bankruptcy. As residents wrestle with their grief, we look at how the city is coping with its economic woes.

Red alert

As an international climate conference continues in Paris, for the first time ever, Beijing raised its pollution warning system to the highest level, issuing a "red alert" that prompted the shutdown of schools and forced many cars off the road. With their kids coughing and wheezing, parents in the Chinese capital city are worried, but what do they think of their leaders' response?

Yoga pants

Chip Wilson made yoga pants a wardrobe staple with the launch of his brand Lululemon, but his comments about women have stretched the limits of some customers' patience, and he was demonized for them. Now, Wilson opens up to "CBS This Morning" about the controversy, and how his family is trying to move forward.
