tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  July 12, 2021 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
>> joining me now is the medical director in springfield, missouri, dr. howard jarvis. dr. jarvis, we appreciate the work you're doing. we appreciate you being with us this morning. you've written and talked about your frustration and what you're seeing. the patients coming in with covid, what's the one common denominator they have? >> the common denominator that they're sick enough to be in the emergency department is that they're unvaccinated. if they're sick enough to be admitted to the hospital, they're unvaccinated. that is the absolute common denominator amongst those patients. >> the people you are see ing ae unvaccinated. do they regret? or what are they saying about their vaccination status? >> i can see the regret on their face. you know, we ask them, because we want to know, are you vaccinated? and it's very clear that a lot of them regret it. you feel terrible. i haven't had the disease
5:01 am
myself, but just watching how people are suffering with their breathing, how hard it is for them to breathe, how poorly they feel. they feel terrible with this. and you can see the regret on their face. they don't necessarily express it all the time. but it's clearly there. >> the patients who are being hospitalized, unvaccinated. and what else, generally speaking? what's the age range of patients you are seeing now? >> so it's kind of interesting, because earlier in the pandemic, and certainly before we had vaccinations, we were seeing a much older patient population in the emergency department and getting admitted to the hospital. in recent weeks, we've been seeing a much younger population. and really even quite a few people who don't have any underlying medical problems. so, the age skew is much younger. we're seeing people in their 30s, 40s, early 50s. we're seeing some teenager and
5:02 am
some pediatric patients as well. >> how sick are the patients you're seeing? >> honestly, they're quite ill. they are quite ill. and it seems as though this variant that we're experiencing, and that's a lot of the problem right now, the delta variant is very high in our region. so, we have patients who are very sick. honestly, they seem to be getting sicker earlier in the course of their illness thaen what i recall six months ago when we were seeing patients. but they are quite ill. >> you know the federal government, the biden administration, is trying to send people outdoor to dew door-to-door, to encourage people to get vaccinated. some governors are critical of it, saying it's not eventhive or
5:03 am
welcome. what's your reaction to that? >> my reaction is anything that we can do to encourage people to get vaccinated, we should do. you know, when you have a statistic that 99% of the deaths from covid in the united states over the last month were in unvaccinated patients, the data cannot be more clear than that. we really don't have great and effective, you know, therapies for covid-19. once you become ill and have to come into the hospital. i mean, there are things we can do. we think there's some benefit with them. what we really have is the ability to keep you from getting very sick with this and keep you from dying if you get vaccinated. so, i think whatever we can do to encourage people to get vaccinated, we should do. you know, i'm seeing some of
5:04 am
these very ill people that i'm admitting to the hospital, you know, i don't want to kick somebody when they're down, when they didn't get vaccinated. cl clearly, they regret it. i am asking some of them, at least, to consider reaching out to people that they know, family members, loved ones, friends, to encourage them to get vaccinated, because people that are that ill really recognize how severe this disease is. >> dr. howard jarvis, we appreciate the work you're doing. we appreciate the message you are sending. go get vaccinated if you haven't. thanks very much, doctor. >> thank you. all right. let's bring in the former republican governor of minnesota, tim pawlenty with us. thank you for being with us. you heard as john berman spell out governor parson of missouri has been critical of this door-to-door outfit. michelle baughman has as well. she said this. >> so, door-to-door, they're
5:05 am
coming. they've got syringes. i don't think this is going to go too well, michelle. what do you think? >> well, i'm glad that actually this is an issue. i want to urge all the viewers to go out and buy no trespassing signs. the government has zero business to do this, zero right. what they're wanting all of us to do is to check our bill of rights, our civil liberties at the door. >> what do you think about this, as we're seeing vaccination numbers not being where they should be, and you have outreach from the government, it is being described, characterized as the way bachmann is characterizing it. what do you say? >> we're hopefully in the final stages of a very serious pandemic and i hope reasonable steps to get people vaccinated are okay. we have people come to our homes to read water meters, to come to
5:06 am
my home to sell vacuum cleaners or whatever the product might be. as well as people coming to your home are acting reasonably -- of course, the homeowner has the opportunity to say i'm not interested. go away. if that person complies, it seems like a reasonable effort to get people vaccinated. they are the difference maker in fighting this pandemic and all reasonable efforts to get people vaccinated should be encouraged. >> there seems to be a litmus test for republicans. we're having governor christie nome who put into place no restrictions and has a high rate of deaths per capita. she's taken aim at republican governors who did follow science and take more safety measures. what do you make of that? >> well, i did read her comments from cpac. look, whether it's republican or democrat, you can do a matrix of the steps states took across this nation and look at ones that are more open or less open and the results are mixed in
5:07 am
t terms of what that meant in terms of human health. we'll have to take months or years to unsort who actually did what and when and what impact that had. and i think we're going to find it's a mixed story. but the bottom line is, vaccines were the difference maker and to the extent other measures helped, you know, being courteous to others, like wearing a mask, trying to be helpful as we live in community with each other, with things that are reasonable and not overburden some, those are okay. trying to lead and do the route thing in a pandemic that we're learning in real time. >> policy decisions about the vaccination have been very clear about the effect. so, where you do have republicans in some states emphasizing that there shouldn't be any pressure to get the
5:08 am
vaccine or not even advocating on behalf of the vaccine, we see what's happening. 99.2% of the people who are extremely ill or dying are unvaccinated. so, i mean, that's a measure where there is not a mixed bag and that tends to go along with the governors making more moderate policy decisions. >> as to vaccines, let me be clear, brianna, they are the difference maker and should absolutely be encouraged. but let me say this by way of background. we're at a point, sadly, in our country where with enough volume and enough repetition, can you convince so to 20% of the population of almost anything and the republican party certainly wants to be the party of liberty and free will exercise and all of that. we also have to be responsible and we have to be smart. and the evidence and the data is clear. these vaccines, relative to all other vaccines throughout history, are very safe. they're making a huge difference for human health and we should be encouraging them.
5:09 am
we need leaders who are informed, responsible and thoughtful setting the example with their words and actions in that regard. >> i do want to ask you, because i'm sure that you have an opinion on the matter. cpac, conservative conference over the weekend, which is always colorful, right? we know that. >> yes. >> according to our donnie o'sullivan, there were three percenters and proud boys just walking around at cpac. this is different. >> look, the grass roots level there's a lot of, shall we say, interesting people in politics, right and left. i want to encourage -- we can't have a dem kras without an informed citizenry. lea leaders, we have to elevate leaders who are responsible with the information they share, encourage and the example that they set. and we also have to make sure we're not empowering, right or left, leaders or groups that are
5:10 am
crazy or extreme. and it's not that difficult. it shouldn't be that hard for americans to say we're not going to elevate people who are obviously, you know, nutty and who are in leadership positions. we're not going to elevate or embrace groups that are militant and extreme or dangerous in their behaviors and that includes a bunch of groups on the left, too. >> but, i mean, what we're seeing is this particular conference, i don't think we're seeing something like this on the left. i'm talking about three percenters. >> we may not see it on the left. we may not have yet seen it at the left in conferences but certainly have seen it in the streets all across america. antif antifa's behavior in seattle, for example. >> this is a political conference. i mean, that is a difference. this is a conference that is supposed to be attracting the
5:11 am
base of the republican party and you have three percenters and proud boys walking around. >> let be candid, brianna, both parties have extreme elements that are just out of bounds in terms of a lot of behaviors, thoughts and proposals and it's incumbent upon the rest of us if we're efr going to get this pulled back together. >> these are folks, anti-government extremists, who feel welcome enough that they're attending a political conference. >> i bet if i went to any number of leftist gatherings, i could find a bunch of goofballs as well. >> do you know of any? >> do i know of militant leftist groups? >> do you have an actual example of that? i ask you, governor, because this is an actual example. do you know of an actual example on the left that basically says it's all the same, left and right, here? >> we have all kinds of examples
5:12 am
of people who are encouraging violence or behaviors that we would otherwise accept outside the norm throughout the country. >> but a political conference where a former president is speaking? >> what difference does it make if it's in a hotel ballroom or street corner? >> i think it speaks to whether they feel welcome to the a particular event. i ask because you're aware that the u.s. government has made clear about how big of a threat anti-government extremism is, that this is a huge threat to national security. >> and i would put antifa and other groups on the left in the same category. >> but they -- i will say, i hear what you're saying about that. we have seen some violence. the federal government does not put them in the same category, just to be clear. and i'm just wondering, you said you would find goofballs on the left. i don't see, actually, the
5:13 am
example on the left at a political conference where you have anti-government extremists showing up. and i'm just asking you if you do. you said if you look, you would find them. >> i think if you and i sent a cnn crew that wasn't otherwise obvious and evident to a left gathering, not the democratic party's national convention but some ancillary group, their version of cpa krc and went aro with a camera, notepad or otherwise just observed you would find people who are problematic, from the normal or typical population's perspective. your point is proud boys or whatever extremist groups are milling around cpac is uncomfortable and shouldn't be embraced by the republican party. that's a fair point. but let's also agree, in fairness, that this is not just a problem of the right.
5:14 am
there's also extremist militant elements on the left and we should call that out as well. >> is it more than uncomfortable? >> well, the republican party does not want to become the party of, you know, extremist folks who have conspiracy theories and are militant. the same is true on the left. so, again, it's a disservice to the debate to say there's only crazy militant people on the right. there's also crazy, militant people on the left. and the rest of us in a democracy have to be united enough and have enough common sense to say we're not embracing any of that right or left in who we choose as leaders. >> i certainly think that last point has merit to it. i do think it's very clear where extremists feel welcome in attend ing a certain event.
5:15 am
>> well, cpac -- as you said, there's all sorts of gatherings all over the country. cpac is one of them. if you want to be fair about it, do some coverage of the other extremist groups. >> i want to be fair about it and i'm asking you to name one, and you can't. we can continue to this conversation. >> antifa would be one of them. antifa would be one of them. >> i mean, that certainly is a group. certainly. but i'm talking about being welcomed at an event. we'll continue to have this discussion. i really do want to get to the bottom of it. i appreciate you -- >> i don't think the writ cause of what's going on in our democracy is who is welcome at a political hotel room. it's much broader and deeper and more nuanced than that. so, i understand your point. which is this was cpac. but the idea that that is somehow the measure of what's going on underneath the hood of our democracy is just touching the surface, i'm afraid. >> i do think it's part of it.
5:16 am
i will say that. i do think it's part of it. governor pawlenty, thank you for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. >> john? >> terrific conversation about the divisions in the country. we talked about coronavirus and how case rates are rising and how that's a concern. but there is an interesting element in some of the polling we've seen the last few days, which is if you ask people how they are doing, how their lives are, by some measurements they say great, like historically fantastic. here to discuss, cnn's senior data reporter, harry eton. good news. >> something completely different. how about that for a change? look at this. gallup poll. look at this number in june of 2021. 59%. that is the highest that gallop has ever asked it. the previous high was 57% in september 2017. we are beating that.
5:17 am
look at that jump we've seen since the coronavirus pandemic was beginning in march and april of 2020. we're up 13 points. americans are thriving. they like the way things are going for themselves. >> if you ask people sort of the negative version of that, have things been bad over the last week, what do you see? >> right. look at this from the axios poll. has your mental health decreas ed worsened in the last week? only 9%. people are feeling better about themselves. fewer think their mental health are getting worse. >> is there a partisan divide in that? >> no. that's what's great. everything has a partisan divide. this doesn't. just 8% of republicans, 8% of democrats, 11% of independents.
5:18 am
folks across the political spectrum think that they're mental health is not get ting worse. that's a good thing. >> your enthusiasm may be part of it, harry. how do people feel about coronavirus? >> this is why people are feeling so much happier with their lives, their mental health improving, just 8% in june of 2021, according to gallup. you have to go back to before march of 2020 to get a lower percentage that say the coronavirus is the most important problem. >> in terms of people's concerns about getting back to life as normal. >> yeah. i think this sort of sums it all up for you folks. this is pretty clear. returning to your prepandemic normal life, percentage who say it's a larger, moderate risk. down to 28%. that's a nearly drop in half
5:19 am
from april 2021 when it was 55%. just 28% say that now. look where we were pretty much throughout all of last year, 2020. you see this drop here, 72, 71, 73. 55 down to 28% now. people feel like they can get back to normal lives. when they really can, who can say? but people certainly feel that way. they feel much better about their lives and themselves. >> correct me if i'm wrong, harry, this seems like good news here. >> this is good news if you can't tell by my enthusiasm. there's a lot of bad news out there, so let celebrate some good news. >> thank you. >> thank you, sir. >> cuba, largest demonstrations in decades. the regime blaming the u.s. >> three soccer players are targeted by ugly social media racist attacks after losing this big game. we're going to fact check

5:23 am
in cuba, thousands are protesting across the nation. cuba is in the mid of an economic crisis and these anti-government protests are the largest we've seen in decades.
5:24 am
patrick ottman is live for us in havana, cuba, with more. it's hard to overstate how significant this is, what we're seeing. and we wonder, of course, if it's going to continue, patrick. all right. i think we're having a little problem there. patrick, can you hear me? >> reporter: yeah, i hear you now. can you hear me? >> yes. patrick, tell us a little bit about what you're seeing. >> reporter: i'll just go ahead. yeah, and so everyone is aware, there have been massive problems since these protests with the internet, not surprisingly. something happens here often, the government slowing the internet or cutting the internet when there's civil disturbance. these protests are rare. they're actually unprecedented. never been in the nine years i've lived in cuba and the 20 years i've come here have we seen so many places just spontaneously where people come out to protest. this isn't one city.
5:25 am
it is dozens of cities. sometimes even in small towns. and it began kind of a rolling protest across the country yesterday. people watching these protests all unfold on social media, online. and people who have nothing left to lose, nothing left to fear, took to the streets. the government, as you said, are blaming the united states, saying u.s. sanctions have caused halvoc here. many people we've spoken to say they've heard that for years and they're tired of it. their life has become intolerable during the pandemic. people have been leaving this island by rafts and yesterday we saw something again i've never seen before, i don't think anyone alive in cuba has seen before, which is thousands of people across this island, not just in havana, the capital, but in small towns, taking to the streets to protest and say that they want change. so far, no indications from the government that any change --
5:26 am
>> no indication from the government that any changes will be coming, i think you were going to say, patrick. thank you. john? francis suarez, mayor, thank you for being with us. you're imploring the u.s. government to take action. what do you want to see? >> first of all we would love to see the white house and president make a statement, supporting the cuban people, in solidarity with the cuban people. in addition to that, the international community is now seeing, as your correspondent said, the reality of what's happened in cuba. there has to be an international coalition on the cuban island. the people there are starving, yearning for freedom and people have absolutely no medicine and are getting devastated by covid. there has to be some level of intervention. obviously there's a lot of
5:27 am
people in miami that would love to see military intervention. >> mayor suarez, i think we may have lost your microphone. mayor suarez? all right. we're going to get him back after a break. we'll be right back.
5:28 am
5:29 am
5:30 am
back with me now is the mayor of miami. francis suarez. the unprecedented demonstrations we saw all over cuba in the last 24 hours. mayor, you mentioned you wanted to see a statement from the biden administration. national security adviser jake sullivan did tweet last night. he said the u.s. supports freedom of expression and assembly across cuba and would strongly condemn violence or targeting against protesters who are demonstrating their universal rights. what do you think happens next on the island, mayor? >> it remains to be seen. we've already seen the kind of violence that the national security adviser is warning against. the cuban government, i think,
5:31 am
was shocked frankly and your correspondent said the impressiveness and they didn't know how to react. >> all right. mayor francis suarez, i do appreciate the effort. we thank you for joining us this morning. i know you were expressing your solidarity with the people on the streets of cuba right now. developing overnight, prince william and the mayor of london condemning the racial abuse on social media that targeted some of england's players following their crushing loss to italy in the euro finals. cnn sports contributor darren lewis joins me from wembley stadium. daily columnist for "the mirror." american sports fans or americans in general who don't know what happened, england lost in a penalty shootout. it was heartbreaking and crushing from a sports perspective. what we saw after was repug nant
5:32 am
from a human perspective where three black english players who missed their penalty kicks were attacked in racist terms overnight on social media. what's your take on this? >> john, it would be the equivalent of players from the nba or nfl, black players being singled out for racist abuse or the national side, women's side, men's side, three black players who people felt on the outside were culpable for a defeat, being targeted with racist abuse. and it's kind of symptomatic, john, of the problem with this country, england, britain, has been mired in racist abuse for quite some time. it's been a divisive nation. i'm sure you will note for many years with brexit and all the other things that have pushed a wedge between different sides of the country. there are lots of good people, white people who call out
5:33 am
abuses, being very vocal since george floyd last year and before that. then you have the other people empowered by the division, empowered by the rhetoric, the politicians who run the country, who have no compunction about being disparaging about the black and brown people who are just trying to exist in this country at the moment. it's a set of circumstances overnight that really has sparked a lot of anger and emotion, because these are young black men just trying to go about their business, but they are symptomatic of the many black people in this country who find themselves subjected to r racist abuse with no one able to defend them or do something about it. >> english soccer players have been take ing the knee before games all year long. all through the european championships as well. in some cases, they were getting booed for it. the italian team, i should note,
5:34 am
before the game yesterday took the knee as well. some of these players have been getting booed for doing this. this is why. what we saw overnight is why, da darren, they've been kneeling before games. >> you hit the nail right on the head, john. here is the thing. at the start of the tournament, as you rightly say, players were kneeling to highlight racial injustice and the issues around racist abuse. and fans were, indeed, booing. then when the team started to win and they were playing well and within sight of a first major tournament final in 55 years, and a first major trophy since 1966, everyone got behind them. they were everyone's team. they were the people's team. everyone hailed their diversity. they were all very positive about it. then they lost. then we went right back to the way we were before. and that's the problem with this country. we are black and we are brown. when the country is winning, doing well. when things are going badly, we
5:35 am
are the reason for the problems. and i think the debate will continue. what happens happened in the last 18 months or so, i would say, on both sides of the atlantic, is that people are more empowered, more vocal, whether you are black, white. if you are seeing this kind of thing, you are calling it out. as i said before, there was a huge amount of anger, some of it directed at the prime minister, who saw fit to come out and condemn the racists when he has been racially offensive himself. there's been documentary evidence on a number of oaks where he has referred to muslim women in a disparaging way. it comes from the top. it needs to come from the top if we're to address it as a country. >> darren lewis, i appreciate you being with us this morning. >> thank you, john. thanks for having me. just ahead, a dozen dangerous lies about the insurrection. we will fact check the former president. billionaire richard branson reaching the edge of space.

5:40 am
at the conservative cpac convention this weekend, an eruption of lies that made it sound like a bedtime story rather than an attack that shook the foundation of democracy, literally. reading through court documents involving every suspect in the capitol attack pointed out 1 lies that the former president told on his fox news interview sunday, of course, enabled by the host. here is lie number one. >> they asked me to be invited to speak. i did. it was a very mild-mannered speech. >> a speech to push his election lie, which he teased and promoted, which was anything but mild. >> we fight. we fight like hell. and if you don't fight like hell you're not going to have a country anymore. >> and then lie number two.
5:41 am
>> they just came out with a report in congress, and they didn't mention my name literally. >> wrong. the report references tweets and other statements from the then president, including the entire transcript of the speech from that day, plus senate republicans voted against an independent investigation into the snerks and its ori origins. >> you had over a million people there, which the press doesn't like to report at all because it shows too much activity. too much spirit and faith, and love. there was such love at that r rally. you had over a million people there. >> that one is a whopper. final count is hard to come by but organizers permitted the event for 30,000, far fewer than 1 million. and lie number four. >> they were peaceful people. these were great people. the crowd was unbelievable.
5:42 am
>> peaceful except for all of the violence, the blood, the assaults, the beatings and the destr destruction. >> not peaceful. not even close. lie number five, involving speaker nancy pelosi. >> i had suggested to the secretary of state of defense perhaps we should have 10,000 national guardsmen standing by. and he reported that, as you know. but we should have. and he was turned down. i said it's subject to congress. they run it. nancy pelosi runs it. >> so she does not control the d.c. guard. that would be the president and secretary of defense.
5:43 am
lie number six. >> there were no guns whatsoever. and yet they have people still in jail. there were no guns. there were no guns. >> there were guns, along with other weapons from bear spray to baseball bats to tasers. and it's impossible to know how many rioters were armed since most were allowed to walk away from the scene unchecked and unsearched. lie number seven. >> by the way, while you're at it, who shot ashley b aabbitt? why are they keeping that secret? who is the person who shot an innocent, wonderful, incredible woman? >> again, marshall cohen re, wh pours through all these court documents says while tragic, ashley babbit was committing a crime when she was killed. and also that democrats are responsible. lie number eight. >> who is the person that shot
5:44 am
an innocent, wonderful, incredible woman, military woman, right in the head? and there's no repercussions. >> to be clear here, babbit was shot in the left shoulder, not in the head. lie number nine. >> frankly, the doors were open. >> frankly, a lot of doors and even windows were forsd open after a stream of insurrectionists battled police officers officers. >> and speaking of, lie number ten. >> there was also a love fest
5:45 am
between the police, the capitol police and the people that walked down to the capitol. >> so this is the love fest of which he is speaking. >> lie number 11 involves the evidence that we are seeing. >> they have hundreds of hours of tape. and they're not releasing the tape. they ought to release the tape to see what really happened. >> first of all, the tapes are hardly an exoneration of his supporters. in fact, they're at the center of the cases against them. also, a major reason we're seeing the tapes, slowly but surely, is because cnn and the rest of the media are demanding it from the courts. and finally, lie number 12. >> they have people who walked with no guns, with no nothing.
5:46 am
they're currently incarcerated and there's large numbers of them, and it's not right. and they're military people. and they're police officers and they're construction workers. and they're tremendous, in many cases, tremendous people. tremendous people. >> regardless of what their occupations are, hundreds of suspects are free. the ones who are not are charged with violent crimes. and one of the central reasons that some of them remain behind bars is because judges point to trump's continued lies and rhetoric for why they're dangerous to society. richard branson's space voyage what it means for the future of space tourism. plus we'll fact check the colorado congresswoman who says repub republicans don't want government benefits. this may look like a regular movie night. but if you're a kid with diabetes, it's more. it's the simple act of enjoying time with friends,

supersonic space plane with wings and takes off and lands on the runway. branson launch took about 90 minutes in total. jeff bezos' flight only going to take about 11 minutes but it will go much higher than what we saw virgin galactic's space plane do. it will reach the carmen line, internationally recognized boundary of space. the u.s. says richard branson reached it yesterday, 50 miles above the earth's surface and he is now an astronaut. >> how often, kris tin, will we be seeing these flights? is this just going to become normal? >> i think so. i mean, it hasn't happened quite yet, obviously. we're still very much in the test flight stage. think about this. you have between 600 and 700 people who put down deposits to get a ride on virgin galactic spaceship two. they put those deposits down, some of them, years ago, willing to pay $200,000, $250,000.
