himself when the mob attacked. is that self-defense, or did he instigate the bloodshed? that is the question at the center of kyle rittenhouse's murder trial today we heard from kyle rittenhouse himself, as the now 18-year-old took the stand he sobbed as he recounted that deadly night in kenosha, wisconsin. unrest was sweeping the city after police shot jacob blake, a black man. rioters burned down buildings. rittenhouse said he drove to the city to help clean up graph fee tee, put out fires, and give medical aid. he shot three protesters, killed two. witness say he chased them and attacked him and he had no option to open fire. here's drone video shown during the trial of the first shooting that killed joseph rosenbaum it freezes after the first gunshot. you can see rosenbaum there run up behind rittenhouse.
4:03 am
rittenhouse wields around and fires. he shoots rosenbaum four times, according to court testimony prosecutors say the kill shot was in rosenbaum's back. rittenhouse insists rosenbaum was trying to grab his gun. >> i look over my shoulder and mr. rosenbaum, mr. rosenbaum was now running from my right side, and i was cornered there were people right there. >> take a deep breath, kyle. >> that's when i -- that's when i run -- >> the judge then took a break
4:04 am
rittenhouse says he had to shoot two more protesters who chased him down the street. one of whom had a pistol prosecutors pressed rittenhouse on why he would bring that ar-15 to the protest, and why he needed to use deadly force. >> everybody that you shot at that night, you intended to kill, correct? >> i didn't intend to kill them. i intended to stop the people who were attacking me. >> by killing them. >> i did what i had to do to stop the person who was attacking me. >> by killing them. >> two of them passed away, but i stopped the threat from attacking me. >> by using deadly force. >> i used deadly force. >> that you knew was going to kill. >> i didn't know if it was going to kill them, but i used deadly force to stop the threat from them attacking me. >> aside from rittenhouse's testimony, there were fireworks in the courtroom as the defense
4:05 am
pushed for a mistrial with prejudice and the judge yelled at the prosecutor. legal analysts in a moment. first, nbc's gabe gutierrez covering the trial in kenosha, wisconsin. gabe >> reporter: with the defendant crying, the judge yelling and the defense now asking for a mistrial, it was a wild day of testimony here at the courthouse behind me. and that defense is asking for a mistrial with prejudice, meaning, shep, if the request were granted, rittenhouse could not be retried the judge has yet to rule on that motion. but the judge did admonish the prosecution twice, once because the prosecutors questioning involved rittenhouse's post arrest silence, which, of course, was his right under the constitution. >> i was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant's post arrest silence. that's basic law it's been basic law in this country for 40 years, 50 years i have no idea why you would do something like that.
4:06 am
>> reporter: the judge also lashed out at the prosecution for another instance where the prosecution brought up a piece of evidence, a video that involved, kyle rittenhouse, talking about how he wished he had a weapon the judge had previously said that could not be talked about during the trial take a listen to his response when the prosecution tried to bring it up. >> you're an experienced trial attorney and you're telling me that when the judge says i'm excluding this, you just take it upon yourself to put it in because you think you found a way around it? come on! >> reporter: again, the judge has not ruled on the motion for a mistrial testimony here is expected to pick back up tomorrow with the defense calling several more witnesses to the stand closing arguments are expected potentially on monday, shep. >> gabe, thank you. legal analysis now, david henderson, civil rights attorney, cnbc contributor david, rittenhouse gav rememberable testimony today did it help him or hurt him?
4:07 am
>> shep, i think it hurt him more than it helped him. it was very emotional. my experience, having tried dozen of cases, you can't tell which jurors felt moved an which ones felt manipulated. he was effectively coached prosecution's examination was a slow burn but towards the second half, i think they scored a lot of points. >> a slow burn the defense today asked for a mistrial with prejudice. do they have a case? >> not for a mistrial with prejudice. i'm on the fence about whether or not they could get a mistrial shep, i think what the judge really wants is for them to sweat it all night long before they come back in. he's not going to declare with prejudice. it's hard for me to guess if he would declare mistrial. >> the prosecutor took a lot from this judge today from his line of questioning with the jury while the jury was out of the room how big of a problem is that for the prosecution for the rest of this trial you want a friend in the judge you don't want an enemy. >> you do, shep. i would say in general if you're never making a judge angry, you're probably not doing your job as a trial lawyer.
4:08 am
now with that in mind, the reason it hurts the prosecution is because the one advantage you have as a prosecutor is you're perceived as being a person of integrity. you're the only lawyer that people actually want to believe, and so now do you not only have the judge yelling at you, where i have never been in a courthouse where they're yelling in court, you don't hear that in the jury room. yesterday you have a accusation of trying to change his statement and looks like fifth amendment violation today, not following the rules, that's not good when you're going into closing arguments when you're the prosecutor >> the first count, the fourth shot against the first victim is one thing and then the next victim is there one -- i should say one who was shot, is there one along the way in your estimation where the prosecution might have a better case than the others? >> you know, i think they have the best case on the first shooting, of rosenbaum however, i also have to note that some of the arguments the defense is making appeal to people who carry guns. for example, saying i think he
4:09 am
might grab my gun, and if he does, even though the gun is strapped to my body, i think he may take it and use it against me is not lethal force but people who carry guns tend to see it that way, and that will carry the day with the jury more so than technical legal arguments will >> deadly force, you knew he was going to die they pressed that over and over. effective? >> i think that was effective, shep i thought they should have scrapped the entire first half of the cross-examination and jumped straight to that point. because one thing rittenhouse does demonstrate is he has a high level of skill with that raffle he aimed at his targets the way he was shooting at them. he was forced to admit, yes, he knew he was aiming and he knew those blows would be lethal and that's exactly what they were. >> the trial continues tomorrow. we'll have coverage. david, thank you. americans are feeling the pain of rising prices and a new report out just today shows they are not dropping any time soon the consumer price index measures what people pay for goods and services the labor department result reports it jumped by more than 6% from a year ago

4:12 am
>> there's just no roadmap for reopening a $20 trillion economy, let alone a globa economy, all at once but at different times, which has caused the supply chain bottlenecks we've seen out there. >> reporter: not even toys are spared nerf maker hasbro and barbie maker mattel are increasing prices. just as consumers start checking off those holly shopping lists >> the holidays will be different because the cost of everything is higher so i'm going to have to buy less presents >> reporter: consumers are bearing the brunt of higher prices for now. >> i think we'll see some slowdown in inflation as we get into the second half of 2022, even the spring of 2022. the bottom line is inflation is not going to cool enough, not to burn. >> reporter: with consumer spending two-thirds of our country's economy, if it weakens, so, too, will our economic recovery. shep >> thanks. cnbc white house correspondent kayla tausche now. there's real pressure on the white house now to do something about this.
4:13 am
>> reporter: shep, good evening. the white house has said reversing this trend is a top priority it's studying every option available. and today at the port of baltimore, president biden talked up that bipartisan infrastructure deal he'll sign on monday and the broader package still being negotiated as the fix >> along with other plans i'm advancing, this bill is going to reduce the cost of goods to consumers, businesses and get people back to work. >> reporter: senator joe manchin, a critical vote for mr. biden's agenda and nominees, issuing a broadside on twitter, saying inflation is not transitory, an attack on the favored term of the chair of the federal reserve, which fights inflation. lambasting the inflation tax from the grocery store to the gas pump senator dan sullivan, republican from energy-rich alaska, says the biden administration's climate agenda is making it worse. >> it makes no sense and it's really hurting working families. we are seeing prices 60% higher
4:14 am
at the pump, and we're actually importing twice as much oil from russia. >> reporter: the white house, as soon as this week, may unveil some temporary measures to tap the country's emergency oil reserves ahead of the travel-heavy thanksgiving holiday. cnbc learned the white house is considering moving up a preplanned sale of oil from the reserve or coordinating a tandem release with allies in europe and asia to get more oil to market and to drive prices lower. a senior administration official telling me the white house is optimistic about estimates showing prices falling on their own by early next year but by then, the messaging war may already have been lost today on twitter, biden-flation was with trending. >> kayla tausche, thank you. the largest ports in america are still facing a major cargo crisis a logjam of container ships piling up off the coast of los angeles and long beach last month 58 ships were waiting to anchor in san pedro's bay

4:25 am
over dozens of wars and social revolutions. it is a testament to time itself but time may be running out. >> when we have extreme rainfall events that we haven't seen in our time, our lifetime or recorded history, then we're not actually even sure what might happen to some of these buildings. >> reporter: just this past july, a freak storm dumped more than a month's worth of rain on scotland in barely a day, doing serious damage to edinburgh castle. >> that had quite a significant effect in terms of damage to the floor surfaces and the interiors. so we have been working really hard to remedy that. but we also need to start thinking about how we react in the future to an event like that, given those events are becoming more frequent. >> reporter: scotland's ten warmest years have all been in the last three decades, at least since they began tracking this in 1884. warmer temperatures caused heavier rains and intensity of daily extreme rainfall events over edinburgh are expected to increase
4:26 am
this could cause three to four times the annual normal damage to the area's historic castle. blackness castle stands on the edge of the sea, on the front lines of coastal erosion like the castle, the historic society is fixing outer walls to protect it, becaus while castles are part of scotland's identity, they're also invaluable to its economy. >> over a thursday of the tourists who come to scotland say they come specifically to see heritage sites and obviously that generates millions and billions of pounds for scotland's economy. >> reporter: the scotts do love their castles and want to do anything they can protect them from climate change. but for some of the castles, at least, there's an argument to be made protecting the relics of the past may not be the best thing for scotland's future. because restoration is costly and some argue the money could be put to better use in making the city itself greener and more resilient to climate change >> the culture is dynamic, it's
4:27 am
part of who we are, it's part of our community. we change as a society and sometimes we lose things but it's also about understanding that it's okay to lose things. >> reporter: for the news, i'm diana olick in edinburgh, scotland. thousands of our military members fought and died in america's longest war. now their friends and family are fighting for them, and a place to remember their sacrifice. but is it a losing battle? vaccinating young kids today the white house releasing new numbers. but is it enough to start doing away with mask wearing that's next, as we approach the bottom of the hour, and the top of the news from cnbc.

4:32 am
the cdc authorized pfizer's shot for 5 to 11-year-olds last week. nationwide, 28 million kids in that age group are now eligible for their first dose studies show many parents sa they're eager to get their children vaccinated, especially ahead of the holidays. but some experts warn demand could start to drop off in the coming weeks dr. vin gupta now, lung doctor, nbc news contributor and faculty member of the university of washington doctor, thank you. for months many have said this age group, 5 to 11, is key to ending the pandemic. well, that's happening so are we almost there at the end? >> good evening, shep. great to see you we're not there quite yet. 10,000 of our fellow citizens, shep, week over week, well into these coming winter months, are going to still die, we suspect, based on forecasts from the university of washington, from this virus so how we define the end of the pandemic probably is going to be in terms of daily and weekly
4:33 am
death tolls. we're not there yet. i suspect to all of your viewers out there, end of march 2022, once we're past cold and flu season and once hopefully we're past the worst of covid, that's truly the light at the end of the tunnel >> some school districts are starting to roll back the mask requirement. medically, is that the right move >> i think it's too early to start rolling it back at this moment and yet we need an off-ramp away from masks that's what people are craving, normalcy so we need a science-based way to think about that. when you look dispassionately at the data, shep, here's what it says, it clearly shows if you're without serious medical conditions, less than 65, and you get a breakthrough illness, you're that rare individual, you might not have a lot of ulness it's not a big deal. and some research out of netherlands say if you test positive, the risk of transmission to an unvaccinated child at home is also extremely low. so that's what normalcy looks like, getting more of us vaccinated so vaccine breakthrough illness is not a big deal
4:34 am
that's what the end of this looks like we're headed there we're not quite there yet. >> we have researchers watching the data every place around the country every day, and what they're seeing in california is a bit concerning when you see what's happening there, what's your take to all of the rest of us? >> you know, this is what i will say, shep, there are spots where cases are climbing and yet there's no specific spot here where hospitals are overwhelmed at this moment i will say, 10,000 weekly deaths, week over week, across the country, we're still very much in this pandemic for the next three to four months. that's why we still need to remain vigilant, get the unvaccinated vaccinated and, shep, to your point earlier, for us as public health officials as messengers to remain credible with the american people, we need to be clear about what an off-ramp looks like. when can we start dawning off masks? when can we regain normalcy truly?
4:35 am
in my view, that's probably march of 2022. but if we say we're going to lead with the science, we need to provide that off-ramp so people feel like they can trust us. >> one more thing, in the deep south, vaccination numbers are low. we all know that there's a different way of handling it down there different people handle this different ways but down south, it's going to be cold in another month or so and people are going to be indoors, vaccination rates are low. how worried are you about mississippi, louisiana and some others >> extremely worried, shep 80% of the deaths i keep citing that we're going to accrue over the next four months will be happening in stating lik mississippi, alabama, georgia, states that have counties where vaccine rates, full vaccination rates are less than 50%. those are going to be the states that will get hard hit yet again. they got hard hit in july and august it will happen again december, january, february. >> talk to your doctor do what's right. dr. gupta, thank you you may have heard the nfl fined quarterback aaron rodgers and the green bay packers for
4:36 am
violating the league's covid safety rules the league investigated the packers after aaron rodgers tested positive for covid last week the nfl fined aaron rodgers and wide receiver -- and a wide receiver nearly $15,000 each the investigation found the teammates attended a halloween party, which violates protocol for unvaccinated players. the league also fined the packers $300,000 for not disciplining the players after that party the team also did not require rodgers to wear a mask when speaking with reporters. that is a clear safety violation. in a statement, the packers president wrote -- we respect the league's findings and we recognize the importance of adherence to the covid protocols to keep our team and organization safe and healthy. the penalties come less than a week after aaron rodgers made misleading comments about his vaccination status and said he was taking an unproven treatment for covid.

died on that set is suing the film's producers and alec baldwin. police say helene hutchins died after alec baldwin shot her with a gun during a rehearsal they say the film's assistant director announced cold gun before handing him the weapon. but the gun had a real bullet in it today the film's director of lighting, sergei svetnov, filed the first known lawsuit over that shooting. he alleged the bullet narrowly missed him, spraying fragments on his face. >> and just feeling something from my face but also, this was so loud, the sound. is loud. i never heard this sound on a movie set. >> his lawyer said his client was close friends with hutchins. he said they worked on nine films together, and that svetnoy only decided to work on the
4:38 am
"rust" shoot because she asked him to do it in the lawsuit, he described setting up lighting about six or seven feet from alec baldwin after the bullet hit hutchins, he knelt with her and held her while she died he said he tried to save her, but he couldn't. today his lawyers said he's suing for damages to make sure it doesn't happen again. he said live ammo should never be allowed on a film set. >> for what purpose would it be there for when you have guns, real guns, and live ammunition, what is likely to happen someone's going to get killed. and when that happens, it's not acceptable for the producers and safety people to say, gee, we didn't know that could happen. we didn't know that would happen. >> the lawsuit also names the woman in charge of weapons on the "rust" set her lawyers say they believe somebody was sabotaging and framing her. svetnoy's lawyer called that unbelievable alec balding has said the
