a double standard emerged. we met up with one that recalled his very different experience this past summer. navy veteran, cesean mcdonald, considers himself a patriot and for the last five years, he's called the nation's capitol his own. so, when millions rallied against racial injustice nationwide, after the death of george floyd, the 40-year-old went to lafayette park june 1st, to protest in front of the white house. as they chanted with no clear

going to get more challenging than better. the resentment is still there, the misinformation is still there and the potential for violence is very real and still there. so, those are things we have to grapple with. >> and kishon mcdonnell agrees. >> i think people have to look themselves in the mirror and say why is this issue still going on? >> there's more ahead on "the >> there's more ahead on "the overnight i give to shriners hospitals for children because i want to be a part of something amazing. - i know my gift to shriners hospitals for children makes a difference in the lives of children. - our support gives kids a bright future. - i give because when i see a child smile, i smile. - when you support shriners hospitals for children, you're joining thousands of other caring people like you who have helped kids like me and over 1.4 million other kids do amazing things. - will you call the number on your screen right now and give $19 a month, just 63 cents a day?

and only he could fix it. his reign mirrored his own chaotic life. he lurched from one crisis to another. from financial windfalls to bankruptcies too, tabloid scandals to oaudacious lies. he introduced us to a bizarre cast of characters from porn stars to those that inherit the dark fringes of american politics. some, like rudy giuliani, seemed to melt before our eyes, as his hair dye trickled down his cheek during a news conference. most he touched were diminished by his experience. others wound up inside. he played down the pandemic and found kind words for vladimir putin and kim jong-un, but seemed determn to drive a wedge between america and our
traditional allies. yes, the stock market went up but the nation's deficit and national debt ballooned to record levels. as we saw in those awful scenes unfolding in the capitol, we came to understand that the man, who had a manic desire for power, had no real understanding of the power he possessed or what happens when it is misused. he will be gone soon but he showed us america was not broken. he was. >> bob shaffer, who's seen it all. and that's the "overnight news" for this monday. for some of you the news continues and for others, follow us on cbs.com. from new york city, i'm jarinka, duncan.
