tv   New Day with John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  April 19, 2021 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
i was driving out looking out onto the freeway. you have members of the national guard on overpasses as lookouts preparing for any event weight as this trial ends up wrapping up. we know also there are additional precautions taken here. the city's schools were moved to virtual learning on wednesday out of an abundance of caution. they don't want students and parents in and around the downtown area as these deliberations continue. finally, we know this isn't happening here in minneapolis. where countries are preparing for potential unrest, depending on how this verdict goes. including some cities, where police departments are canceling all leave, all vacations for their officers to ensure they have all hands-on deck. truly a remarkable scene around this country as all eyes are on this trial in the eventual verdict that will come in the trial of this former officer derek chauvin. >> it strikes me this is televised. people are watching this. this will be a televised event.
5:01 am
so that exact moment. do you have a sense of what that will look and feel like surrounding the courthouse and on the streets? >> reporter: absolutely. so when the jury starts their deliberation, they will be sequestered, so they will be cut off essentially from the outside world. the way that process works is that you have the deliberation in their private room, they can send questions to the judge, questions about process, questions about evidence, questions about the law and we are hearing that we will get an update, an advanced warning whenever those questions come in, so we can televise what the jury is asking. of course, we won't see their faces. once with eget to the moment where they have actually rendered a verdict and the judge is prepared to announce that we expect to get one to two hours notice. then that will be televised. we will see the moment when that is read is court. we will obviously get the reaction from the defendants, derek chauvin. the world will be watching as well, that is happening inside a lost of the processes in place
5:02 am
and outside as well, as security precautions are put in place, here around downtown and the area, finally worth noting, it's not just this trial this city is watching, also 10 miles from here. the recent killing of daunte wright has this area here on edge. so just a remarkable keep here, looking at the security precautions put in place as the city prepares for this major verdict. it could be coming at any time. we will certainly be watching. >> josh campbell, thank you very much being there for us. we appreciate your reporting. >> let's now bring in the mayor of st. paul, minnesota, melvin carter. thank you so much for being with us. will you just talk a little bit about how concerned you are about whether there will be violence if derek chauvin is not convicted? >> you know, my biggest concerns and thanks for having me on this morning. my biggest concerns are making sure that everyone in our community knows that there is justice in our justice system for them, that the value of
5:03 am
black and brown lives can be asserted and a point within our criminal justice system and that as members of our community are traumatized by again not just watching the video of george floyd's murder, not just all of the events of this trial, but the retraumatization that we've experienced in the last week with the killing of daunte wright that we have safe, healthy places and ways to process that trauma. we're seeing an enormous amount of protests and amazing, power. , peaceful protests of people who want to say, want to them the world, that those two men, in particular, should still be alive and we have to have a justice system that's capable of valuing their lives. we know there are also people like we saw last year, who are coming to our community for the purpose of going armed and law enforcement partners are working heavily to make sure they don't have an opportunity to do what so many of them did last year
5:04 am
for this to be a complex thing that we have to do all of those at once. >> you are bracing for this. what safety measures have you put in place? >> we are putting in place an enormous amount of safety measures. our st. paul police department is working closely with other law enforcement in the metropolitan area and state. we have engaged our minnesota national guard. we proactively are activating the minnesota national guard as we did during the insurrection activities around january 6th inauguration and we, like i said, are working very heavily to engage those community partners that are helping our residents, helping our students, helping our families process healthily in healthily ways all of the trauma that we are being inundated with right now. >> whatever the outcome of this trial, this is going to be an inflexion point, a clear one when it comes to this country's
5:05 am
reckoning with racial justice. what are you expecting? and how are you viewing this as a historical moment? >> you know, i'm dealing with this as more than a trial for derek chauvin. we are all eyewitnesses. we all know what we saw and nothing that happened in the trial changed any of that. so when the entire world gets to see it that clearly, at some point this trial also becomes a trial of our criminal justice system. a trial of our court system, a trial to determine if this legal system that delivered us separate but equal, that has delivered us so many horrific decisions throughout the course of history, if this system is capable yet of valuing black and brown lives, we're going to see that. and we fully expect that if the answer again is no, that people will be frustrated, they will channel that energy into ways that are constructive to help us
5:06 am
build a better future for our children and not in ways that are destructive. >> mayor, thank you so much for coming on at this important moment. we really appreciate it. >> thanks, for having me. >> obviously, this is a part of the largest crisis, of multiple fronts, to be clear, not all are new. they are threatening our way of life, mass shootings, at ap alarming grade, at least 50 since march 16th. racial injustice becoming more evident as protesters demand equality, long promise. those cries renewed in communities of color demanding justice. >> so the coronavirus pandemic, which only got worse in the face of the politicization of common sense health measures like masking and vaccinations. all of those fueled by the long-standing threat from disinformation and lies, both from foreign countries, trying to cause chaos in america. also from politicians like former president trump and his
5:07 am
supporters and allies. on top of that a gridlocked congress means the cries of a hurting nation aren't being heard. these lawmakers are not the once suffering from the inaction. every-day americans r. they are the ones paying the price. >> case in point, mayor buckley from indiana reveals his personal connection to one of the victims at the fed-ex shooting 19-year-old samarria blackwell. he says their families have been friends for decades. >> so i have, this is kind of tough for me. she is one of our bright, young citizens who has been called home. i'm never going to question why. but she was. now she is sitting at the right happened of god looking down to all of us. that is refreshing to me. i'm sorry. >> sara sidner has been reporting on that aftermath for
5:08 am
years now, speaking to feel who bear the brunt of so much tragedy, sarah, we heard you asking what i think is such a poignant question and it's dead on right here. you wonder if we have an empathy problem here in the united states. what do you mean and what would empathy fix? >> look, i think we do have an empathy problem in the united states. empathy is sort of the stronger sympathy. stronger than sympathy. it's putting yourself in someone else's shoes. it's feeling their feelings and understanding them on a deeper level and i think we just in this country are having a difficult time doing that. when you think an idea in your head is more important than human life, we have a problem. when you can't understand or you are a police officer that looks at black people, that looks at someone else as a criminal force, not a human being we have a problem.
5:09 am
if you think all police officers are rotten and you can't understand their stress, we have a problem. we keep going around in circles and we keep seeing people being killed for the reasons that are just, there is no reason for it. i think empathy is really at a loss in this country and something that we certainly have to work on especially with the next generation of children. >> it's a really good point. if you were to put yourself in other people's shoes, it's incredibly painful. there have been so many shootings. cnn is reporting 50 mass shootings sense march 16th. that is not including smaller shootings, where communities, of course, are still deeply affected. how do you think we as a country already handle it? >> look, i think what we are seeing play out here is a massive mental health issue. we all sat back and i know a lot of journalists and many others predicted that when coronavirus calm down and people started
5:10 am
going back to their daily lives and people were gathering en masse we were going to see this things are back when mass shootings are back. the combination of things tells you a lot about what is going on in this country. the mental health issues we see pop up in many of these mass shootings. also the proliferation of guns, there is more than one for each and every citizen in this country. if you look at the mental health issue and couple that with that fact, you are going to have a problem, a deadly problem. and we should also mention that in 2020, a lot of folks, we didn't see mass shootings. there weren't mass gatherings of people. there were shootings. it was one of the deadliest years in two decades, people don't realize that. so we have a problem in this country that we keep talking about. but it is not being addressed. it is not being fixed and
5:11 am
congress has to do something. if you talk to any family member who has gone through any kind of gun violence, whether it's street violence or violence by police, whether it's a mass shooting, you will hear them say, we must do something. but we have been hearing that for decades and not a dam thing has been done about it and people keep dying. >> so well put, sarah. thank you, sara sidner. that's really the question. something has to be done. you are hearing that from victim's families. nothing is done. what is the thing? something has to cause the tipping point. >> there was a friend that framed it around empathy. it struck a chord with me. my boys are reading "to kill a mockingbird." to hear her say to walk in someone else's shoes to understand that. sarah does that, she travels the country with empathy and reports with empathy and helps us understand these things that are going on from this country that
5:12 am
sometimes are hard to. >> i think that's one of the most frustrating things, especially when you think about it from sarah's point of view covering that, you can see where there could be a solution when you are looking at it through that lens. and, yet, here we are. >> you can say, just try. for god's sakes, try to find a solution. that's not what we are doing either. >>. up next, two lawmakers calling for a congresswoman's expulsion. plus former president george w. bush about people being surprised with his friendship with former first lady michelle obama.
5:13 am
how great is it that we get to tell everybody how liberty mutual customizes your car insurance so you only pay for what you need? i mean it... uh-oh, sorry... oh... what? i'm an emu! no, buddy! only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty, liberty, liberty, liberty. ♪

5:16 am
house minority leader kevin mccarthy is calling for action against democrat maxine waters. he's accusing her of inciting violence for remarks she made on saturday night when asked what protesters should do if derek chauvin is not convicted for murdering george floyd. >> we got to get more access, more -- we've got to make sure that they know that we mean business. >> joining us now chief strategist for the bush-cheney 2004 presidential campaign and the founder of country over party mathew dowd is with us. mathew, thank you so much for lending your perspective here. maxine waters should answer when everyone is on edge.
5:17 am
but the irony here is just so the stench of it. republicans like kevin mccarthy, who has repeatedly given cover to other republican who's have called in such explicit terms for violence. i'm thinking marriagery taylor green. i'm thinking donald trump. the irony here is sick. >> it's incredibly thick and so is the hypocrisy on this, the least to mention january 6th and what happened on january 6th and the number of republicans that their words incited that. i just listened to maxine waters. we all have to be cog fizant of what we say. i don't think what she said in anyway should, we should criticize her for. of course, we should be more confrontational. that doesn't mean we should be more violent. but i was thinking about this as i was listening, is emmett till was killed in 1955, an all white jury found the people that did
5:18 am
it innocent. then jimmy lee jackson, so many of these folks that were guilty of killings and civil rights were then let off. and the only thing that led to the civil rights legislation to finally pass in 1965 was non-violent protests and so i think that's where we're going to end up today. the republicans seem to me on the complete wrong side of history of this. >> mathew, marriagery taylor green, the aforementioned with other people have apparently pulled their plans to launch this america first caucus, this caucus which in the planning explicitly called for touting angelo saxon values. i actually couldn't believe this story when i first read it. you talk about saying the quiet part out loud. this was laying it all out there. this is who we are, see the whole world. now it's time to see.
5:19 am
what did you think when you first saw this? >> well, when i first saw it, i thought give them credit for being honest and transparent and in all seriousness, that is a huge base of the republican party today. i wouldn't say it's a segment. it is a majority of the republican party today. they said it out loud or they proposed to say it out loud, obviously, got wholesale criticism because you can't say those things out loud even though we might believe those things in quiet. i think, john, the fundamental problem today in the republican party today is there is a large segment of the republican base that fundamentally does not believe that all men and women are created equal. they do not fundamentally believe that. and because they don't believe that, then they can practice all these things, say all these things in the course of this. and the other problem with marjorie taylor green and that other nut from colorado is, there are no longer any guardrails to prevent this kind of thing from happening. there used to be some guard
5:20 am
rails if some crazy person surfaced with outlandish ideas, they would not be allowed into the tent. they would be excluded or they would be isolated. we don't have those guard rails in a portion of the media, which repeats lies, repeats a lot of these things, i'm thinking of tucker karlsson in this. without those guard rails, this is becoming out in the wide opened and it's a huge, tremendous problem for our democracy today if we have one political party that is captive to this interest. >> president george w. bush almost you know feels like a relic of the republican party at this point has made headlines for his average, and friendship with former first lady michelle obama. this is what he had to say yesterday on "cbs news". >> and it shocked me, we got in the car and i think barb or jenna said, hey, you're trending. the american people were so surprised that michelle obama.
5:21 am
>> your friendship. >> could be friends. i think it's a problem that americans are so polarized in their thinking that they can't imagine a george w. bush and a michelle obama being friends. >> why do you think that americans are shocked by their friendship? >> well, i think we've come to a place that is incredibly tribalized. george w. bush as your lead in says i worked for both elections in the course of this george w. bush is a relic. if he showed at a meeting of the iron sea or cpac would be booed today. he probably wouldn't be invited. i would hesitate to guess ronald reagan would be booed at those meetings, dwight eisenhower would be booed. we are at a time when the litmus test if you don't buy into crazy things of voter fraud or donald trump is the greatest president in history or whatever else that
5:22 am
has become the elemental part of this, then you are isolated and you are put into cast doubt in this. we, the republican party today is in no, way, shape or form what it looked like 10, 12, 15 years ago. it's not the republican party anymore. >> i had to say, alberto gonzalez, the former attorney general, who you worked with helped get george w. bush elected. he thinks george w. bush could win a republican primary in texas now. is it a shocking thing to think of given where we are and what texas has been over the last many years? mathew, per share osborne has been the host of the show "the talk." she was pushed out over controversial comments about race and the way that meghan markle and prince harry's interview with oprah. she had this to say in her first tv appearance since leaving the show. >> i'm a fighter. i'm doing just fine. what about the people cut from
5:23 am
the knees down and they can't afford to go get lessons on what's politically correct and how to talk to people? what happens to them? >> who is sharon osbourne standing up for there, mathew? what is your reaction to that? >> i have no patience for sharon osborne in this in this whole idea of can sell culture, it's as if you have to be taught to treat everybody with dignity and respect. so the idea that you might be criticized if you don't treat somebody with dignity and respect is some sort of can sell culture, i would have thought sharon osborne or anyone else in our country as you and me and brianna have been, we were raised you treat all people with respect and dignity. the idea that that is some woke culture thing is amazing to me. people ought to go back to the fundamental also they learned as children, which is again treat people with compassion and care and empathy.
5:24 am
for some reason sharon osborne thinks that's problematic in today's culture. >> mathew dowd, great having you with us. great getting up early. i appreciate it. >> my pleasure. michigan congresswoman dlib calls america intentionally racist and beyond reform. the police chief responds live next.

michigan congresswoman rashida tlieb calling for militarization in the wake of daunte wright's fatal encounter with police in minnesota. those include senator bernie sanders and president biden. joining me now is detroit police chief james craig. chief, you describe her comments as reckless and disgusting. why? >> absolutely. they are reckless and disgusting. particularly in this time of day, there has been an assault on new women served across this country as recent as just early
5:29 am
this morning, unprovoked the individual came into a crime scene and began shooting at our officers and so while we can't defensively say those comments are the reason, but the anti-police role is just too much. even we think about representative waters. when she makes statements, get more confrontational. what does that moon? but as it relates directly to rashida tlieb. this is putting attention to herself. that's what it's designed to do. it's not productive. she doesn't speak for the majority of detroiters. the majority of detroiters support this police department. they want effective and constitutional policing and to make statements like about policing certainly is counterproductive. >> she clarified her remarks some after that initial statement on twitter. let me read you what she went on to say. we continue to see death after
5:30 am
death at the hands of police officers with no meaningful accountability. i understand many are concerned about public safety. it's clear more investment in police incarceration will not deliver that safety. instead, we should be investing more resource to tackle poverty, education and equities and increase job opportunities. we should be expanding mental health and social work professionals to respond to disputes before they escalate. your take on that clarification. >> the clarification is spot on. we don't disagree with you know increasing support for mental health just as our prior guest correspondent sarah, we have a massive mental health issue in our country today and in large part fueled by the pandemic. we get it. we understand it. what she is doing now is pedaling back because she got so much pushback on her reckless comments. so it doesn't surprise me, she is now trying to take a softer approach. >> keith, what are europe
5:31 am
concerns in this week, america is on edge with the derek chauvin murder trial, a verdict expected sooner this week. how concerned are you and what are you doing in detroit to prepare? >> it's like i always say, john, we are in a constant state of readiness, this is not my first time. i spent my lion's share in los angeles. i had a front seat to rodney king and the acquittal of the officers and the subsequent unrest in l.a. so, things are very different today. we've seen the large scale protests across our country. we support peaceful protesting. but we also saw a lot of violence, the rioting, the looting, the burning. so all of us who sit in this seat are concerned and i got to tell you, john, candidly, whichever way the outcome of this trial goes, i don't think it's going to make a difference. i truly believe that if he's
5:32 am
acquitted or he is charged, it will still be in some places along our country because we will see violence. i believe it. >> well, i think you and i both hoped you were wrong. we always appreciate your insight. thank you for coming on this morning. we look forward to speaking with you again. >> thank you, appreciate you and brianna, have a great day. will your boss make you get a coronavirus shot before you can come back to the office? is this going to be a requirement? where the debate stands right now next. plus, starting today, young adults can get their shot. the question is, are they going to
5:33 am

5:36 am
to? half of all adults in the u.s. have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine. those figures are coming from the cdc. polls consistently show roughly 20% of americans don't plan to get vaccinated. now some companies are debating requiring workers to get vaccinated before allowing them to come back to the office. joining us is laura jarrett, our
5:37 am
correspondent and anchor of "early start." so many companies are questioning. >> so many grappling. can they make their employees get vaccinated? legally the answer is probably yes. the nfl is already doing this for many employees, whereas companies like amtrak are trying incentives like extra pay to nudge people along. it's a complicated issue. you have to look at federal law, state law and already we see lawsuits filed across the country. let's start on the federal side. there is nothing currently on the books prohibiting a mandate for workers and other to get things in the past like smallposition or influenza, they say that's fine. what does the company do in the context of covid-19? the eeoc, equal opportunity agency. they put out guidance late last year reminding employers if you
5:38 am
are trying to follow other non-discrimination laws, you need to provide exemptions for two groups. one those with religious objections to the vaccine and two people who might have a medical condition that can make taking the vaccine dangerous. but if you are someone in one of those two categories doesn't mean you are coming into the office. the eeoc says this quote it would be lawful for the employer to exclude the employee from the workplace. however, this does not mean the employer may automatically terminate the worker. the employee may be entitled to accommodations, such as performing the current position remotely. bottom line here, this is messy. this will be a little of a negotiation i think. >> does this guidance cover both state and federal laws? >> no, all we are talking about is the federal side. state law, though, is where the action is at right now. here's the big wrinkle. remember, the three vaccines available in the u.s. right now
5:39 am
only have what's known as emergency use authorization. these drugs do not actually have full fda approval, some workers have already filed suit against their employers for trying to mandate the vaccine. the argument is look the risk of these drugs aren't fully known yet. yes, they have been tested. is it fair to make workers get a shot. there is no federal law saying that is legal. a handful of states are debating legislation to prohibit employees actually companies rather from firing their workers based on their immunization status. so if those laws get passed, companies would, of course, have to follow that state lawsuit. this is one to watch. >> there will be a lot developing here. thank you so much for breaking it down so thoroughly. >> thank you. >> now we're like neighbors even though we're an hour apart. >> that's right. in michigan, dozens of parents and community members are demanding their school boards make masks optional in a state wide surge in coronavirus
5:40 am
cases. you are looking at the footage here. this shows parents banging on the doors of the hudson board of education meeting chanting let us in there after they were reportedly locked out due to indoor capacity limitations. michigan currently leads the nation in coronavirus infections with young people playing a significant rule in the search. >> another question we should be asking, do some younger americans even want to get vaccinated. i'll go through the numbers with the senior political writer and analyst, great to see you here. thank you for coming on, on this new "new day. request itself. >> it's a new day. >> we keep hearing from doctors the people getting sick from coronavirus, they're younger. what does that mean? >> so what does it mean exactly?
5:41 am
here we have a percentage of all population. 20-to-39-year-olds, 35% of all cases, just 27% of the population. you see that same difference right here in the 40-to-59, your age bracket. 29%. 25% of the population so when we say younger people, we mean younger adults, generation z, jen x. not those under the age of 20. >> when this number is bigger than this number, it's disproportionate number of cases with people 20-to-60? >> that is exactly right the young adults are making up much more of the cases than the population. >> so the other thing about these people is we know they are less likely to get vaccinated, correct? >> exactly right. covid-19 have gone or we'll get it as soon as possible. look at this, 46% of those 18-to-39-year-olds will get it as soon as possible. that jumps up slightly to the
5:42 am
40-to-59-year-olds. it's 52%. it's significantly less than that 60 plus year age bracket. so those younger adults are lagging on the vaccination. obviously, there were some rules in place that said they couldn't get it. they are still well behind on it. >> another thing about this age group, they're the ones misbehaving, right? >> so it would be one thing right if you were willing to socially distant. have not socially distanced in the last week, according to an axios insos poll in march. 18-to-39-year-olds, 36% said they have not socially distanced in the last week. that's greater than the 40-to-59-year-old ige bracket and the age 60-plus age bracket. we are seeing the younger folks are less likely to get vaccinated and socially distance. so it's not a surprise the case totals is significantly higher
5:43 am
than those older adults. >> just to reiterate, the people getting sick now are the people not getting vaccinated and the people who aren't doing what they should in terms of social distancing, disproportionately they're 18 to 60-years-old. now in terms of consequences, getting sick, getting this virus is bad in and of itself. you have long-term lasting consequences. when you talk about the ultimate consequence, which would be death, what do we know? >> sure. so preliminary data from april suggests those older adults are doing everything right. the 65-year-old's plus. they are social distancing. unfortunately, they're still making up the large share of those who are passing away, right? the 18 to 39-year-olds are 2%. they are a much lower of those passing away of the case total, which is unfortunate that they can be a vector into the community. they may hang out with grandparents and get them sick. the older folks are the ones
5:44 am
sharing the ultimate price. one thing i should point out is this percentage has dropped. this percentage has risen a little bit. those older folks still paying the ultimate price. >> i appreciate it. we talk about it so much. to see the numbers is super important. great to have you. >> thanks, for having me. >> so now that donald trump is out of office, will republicans even remember how to speak out against russia? a reality check next. plus, trump predicted the stockmarket would tank under president biden. how did that turn out? christine romans breaking it down for us next.

5:49 am
russia check. >> reporter: russia is on the border while a dissident is unjustly in pressen. these headlines could have been ripped from the soviet union, which ronald reagan called an evil empire. now the dissident is ukraine and alexei navalny. the republicans were the soviet hawks accusing democrats of being soft on communism. no one could have predicted the role reversal. president trump was silent and he essentially condoned the annexation of crimea, all a part of a pattern refusing to confront russia. the right wing were too happy for his talking points. skip to ukraine that issue interfered in our elections as confirmed by a bipartisan senate intel committee. it was all lies, literally all of it.
5:50 am
even the core claims about hacking that formed the basis of the entire story and the investigation that followed. all lies. well, the russia hoax became a deflectionion of attacking the democrats about an orgy. if that sounds overstated, fox news aired the phrase russia hoax at least 877 times since 2077 according to transcripts and they're still invoking him 78 times so far this year. why are we bringing this up now? because a drum beat of disinformation, you might have missed some very big news. the biden treasury department confirming a russian agent constantine kilimnik, a long-time friend paul manafort passed on information from the trump campaign to the kremlin. it closes the loop on the question of collusion as well as coordination. not only that we know that ukrainian politician andre
5:51 am
dirkosh was a russian agent all along despite being lauded by trump's lawyers and loyalists. that's in addition trump repeating and retweeting russian information designed to help him reelect. it didn't work. it was exacerbated by the big lie. putin's goal was selling the seeds of distrust between fellow citizens and ignoring fact and fiction. well, it may feel strange to go about trump's what about-ism calling putin a killer. we see the party's roles reversed. now america will need to defer the deterred putin's latest moves on ukraine and punish the kremlin if navalny dies in prison and we will see if they remember to stand up to russian dictators or continue to take dictation from the deeply compromised donald trump. that your reality check. >> i have to say i feel after an
5:52 am
