tv   Cuomo Prime Time  CNN  July 12, 2021 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT

6:00 pm
say helped orchestrate to killing to become president himself. the man, a haitian national and doctor living in florida. that's it for us. want to hand it over to chris for "cuomo prime time". >> that does square with our intelligence agencies who believe this was a narco move on president to give him something he wasn't giving them. confidential informants. anderson, pleasure. let's start the week by clearing up some confusion, shall we? first we have fauci. he's just out of the biden administration's new briefing. so what is the deal with boosters? and how did we create more confusion where there should be none? how real is the variant for this fall, and on what basis of proof? and this new vaccine alert for the j&j vaccine -- the fda putting a warning that that single shot vaccine could raise the risk of a rare nerve
6:01 pm
complication. you look into it and everyone says, this is is very rare. then why put the warning? we'll get the straight talk. the investigating along with the cdc matters, but the government still stresses it is better to get vaccinated than to get covid. so, you see, it all confuses you. be worried. don't be worried. we need straight talk. we already know the big concern when it comes to covid sickness -- a lack of vaccinations. that's what's happening here. less than half the country is fully vaccinated. we knew. that's why they were talking about herd immunity. it's a little of a magical number. doesn't exist that way as a metric you could nail to a certain number, but when you don't have a fully vaccinated population, the pace is going to grow. vaccinations, the pace dropped peak in april, 84%. it's slowed down since then. so, what are cases doing? they're climbing. averaging nearly 20,000 a day.
6:02 pm
47% increase from last week. 47% from last week. why? these are gone. why do you know so many people getting sinus infections? how does he know? because i got one. we're getting back to life. we're getting sick. covid is going to keep spreading. this is what you said is okay. so, 36 states are trending in the wrong direction. most cases are attributed to the variant. the vaccine is said to be effective against it. how do they know, and how much? now, here's our big problem. the biggest part of the problem is something we absolutely know already -- there is no unknown. america is the only country that i know of where you can get the vaccine if you want it, but people are choosing not to. and they're doing so not out of legitimate fear but for bogus political reason. if there's any doubt what i'm saying is true, here's the proof. >> now they're sort of talking
6:03 pm
about going door to door to be able to take vaccines to the people. they begin to go door to door to take your guns, take your bible. >> don't come knocking on my door with our fauci ouchy. leave us alone! >> the government was hoping they could sucker 90% of the pop las vegas, and it isn't happening, right? there's -- younger people are -- >> now, you hear the cheers, right? if this isn't mindless political resistance, then help me understand this. they cheer for the united states falling short of its vaccine goal. that's what that guy was talking about, okay? then -- then this is what happens. then trump comes on and starts bragging about creating the vaccine. the thing that they are against and were just cheering, and this
6:04 pm
happens. >> we produced three vaccines to end the pandemic in record time. if we didn't have that, we would be -- we would be in a position like perhaps over 100 years ago. >> they were cheering. i don't know, it was a lousy edit. my point is this -- they cheer trump saying, hey, i got you the vaccine. thank me, because we'd be in rough shape without it. by the way, true. by the way, true. he did push it. he did push the funding. he did tell them, just do it. i don't want to hear why you can't do it. that's all good. he gave you the vaccine. that's good. but now you also think at the same time that it's good that you're not taking it to thwart the government trying to have a hand in your life? this doesn't make any sense. because it's not about reason. it's about animous. it's about resentment.
6:05 pm
shame on trump for not being the biggest booster of the vaccine. he was banking on it. why did he do so lit toll promote it? he got it. kept it quiet when he did. why? his family got it. why didn't he care enough to sell the legitimate need as much as the illegitimate crap he sold them? i still never get that. for all the bs that never made sense. let's bring in a man who's still in the game, dr. anthony fauci, chief medical adviser to president biden. it's good to have you back. >> thank you, chris. good to be with you. >> doctor, you just came out of the meeting. first things first -- the booster. my understanding is nothing has changed. this is about how pfizer is explaining its own phase three look at its own data. tell the audience, what's the
6:06 pm
deal with the booster after the meeting you just left? >> i think you said it correctly, chris, nothing has really changed. this was a courtesy briefing on the part of pfizer because they had come out a couple of days ago talking about data they had from the israeli study and talk about they would need a booster. the cdc and fda said based on the data we know right now, we don't need a booster. that doesn't mean we won't change. we might need, as a matter of fact, at some time to give boosters across the board or to certain select groups such as the elderly or those with underlying conditions. we don't know that now -- >> let's deal with the fact basis. >> what the meeting was -- >> with the meeting, tell us why we don't need it if they do need it in israel, and pfizer agrees we need it in israel. what's the difference?
6:07 pm
>> the difference is, chris, you're dealing with one small bit of data, which is an important piece of a much larger study, a much larger puzzle. the cdc themselves are following over 20 cohorts after people asking the exact same question. and when you want to have what would be a recommendation, a guideline from a regulatory organization like the cdc together with a -- i mean a public health organization like the cdc and a regulatory agency like the fda, you're going to have to get considerable amount of clinical trial, clinical data proof. and we will get that. and when we get that, then recommendations will be made. i think it was a very good meeting today. we heard their data. we made it clear their data is a part of a much larger puzzle, and we will be gathering data as the weeks go by, and if in fact there's a decision if and when
6:08 pm
to give boosters, then we'll hear about it but it will be based on a comprehensive study, not on the announcement of a pharmaceutical company, and i don't mean that in a derogatory way. of it was a very good meeting, very informative, we exchanged information, and i think it's an important step in the right direction. >> what does israel have wrong? >> i don't think israel necessarily has anything wrong, chris. just because they're looking at data they had in their cohort where it looks like they had a diminution, we need to look at the entire picture before you make a policy change for the united states. having said that, it may well be that when you look at all the data, that the recommendation will be that we will have to give a booster. based on the data we have now, the totality of the data, they're not ready to make that recommendation. >> so, on this issue you have a two-front battle. i understand one of it, and i think it's getting the better of
6:09 pm
you guys again. the other part we'll discuss afterwards. the first part is messaging. they're coming after you on the right because it's proof the vaccine wasn't as good as you say it is. >> no, no. >> say, this vaccine sucks. i knew it didn't work. they're forcing it on all of us, and now we need a booster. we're going to need another one. they don't know what they're doing. it's messaging. and are you concerned that the narrative is getting away from you? >> no -- well, let me state something pretty clearly, and i think it's a clear message, chris. first of all, the vaccine is extraordinarily effective in real world effectiveness. 99.5% of all the people who died from covid were unvaccinated. only 0.5% of the people who were vaccinated died from covid. the vaccinations and the vaccine
6:10 pm
work spectacularly well. what we're talking about is not necessarily how good they are, because they are unquestionably terrific. it's the durability of the response that's in question, which is a perfectly reasonable thing when you're dealing with a vaccine. you don't know how long that extraordinarily high degree of protection is going to last, and that's what we're talking about. idea to say, if you might ultimately need a booster that the vaccine isn't any good is like apples and oranges. it doesn't have one thing to do with the other. it's an excellent vaccine that may need a boost for the durability of the response. >> okay, so then the other front of the war is, okay, if you're so sure that it's so good and you have all these millions and millions of data points and all these months of watching it, why hasn't it been approved? because you have a lot of people out there -- yes, you have the political people who are not
6:11 pm
taking the vaccine because they think that means something about how earnest they are, about how they feel about government or trump or whatever. put them to the side. there are a lot of other people saying. i hasn't been approved. i'm not giving to it my kids if it's not approved. why isn't it? >> that's a good point you make, because that is the cause and source of concern for some people when they say it's not approved. that is merely a technical issue with the fda having to dot all the "i"s and across all the "t"s. they hear the word emergency use and think, maybe we're not so sure about it. chris, we are positive this vaccine is extremely effective in the real world, and relatively speaking when you talk about the risk benefit it's quite safe. the idea it hasn't been approved yet is a technicality the way
6:12 pm
the fda does business about having to dot all the "i"s and cross all the "t"s. if you look at all the data i would be astounded if it didn't get full approval. >> but it still took too long and created misgivings. this is a pandemic. you got it made in record time. you couldn't get it approved? let's look at the poll. i know you've seen this numbers, tony, but just so people understand. more likely to get covid vaccine if -- full fda approval, 49%. enter into $1 million lotly, 31%. mobile clinic came to neighborhood, 22%. you already went with the middle part. a lot of states are introducing gimmicks. that's fine. 49%. then something else i need to get your comment on, the j&j vaccine, it may make you vulnerable to a rare neurological disorder, significant enough they want to
6:13 pm
put a warning on the shot. how big a -- is that factoring into what people want to do? >> chris, of course, there's an indication of a signal of a rare neurological adverse event associates with the j&j vaccine. that's been looked at. it's been examined, and the judgment will be -- of course it's going to be looked at carefully, and it's going to be the risk of the disease, when you balance the risk of the disease versus the risk of this very rare adverse event overwhelmingly favors the fact that you should get the vaccine. you're always going to find some adverse event associated with vaks nation. when you vaccinate tens of millions of people, you will always find a rare event. you've got make a decision -- does the benefit outweigh the
6:14 pm
unusual risk of an adverse event? thus far with the vaccines it's always been decided that the benefit of the vaccine outweighs the risk of an adverse event. >> dr. anthony fauci, i appreciate you asking these questions. i know it's not a pat on the back, but people want to though, and i appreciate you being straight. >> good to be with you, chris. >> dr. anthony fauci, thank you. texas democrats did something radical tonight. did you hear about this? they went to d.c. lawmakers have fled their state in the middle of a special session, risking arrest to block the gop from pushing through new voting restrictions. why did they do this? why did they choose to go where they are? let's get both sides of this controversy. we have a democrat who made the run. looking like she's on the lam. can't let you know her true location, because they may arrest her.

6:19 pm
democrats in texas say they're exercising their only option to start a new voter suppression bill. they left the state. most of them are in d.c. they landed about an hour ago. why did they walk out? texas in the legislature doesn't have enough attendance for there to be a vote. let's get after it with representatives from both parties tonight, because the issue matters. this is about how voting rights are being handled at the state level. we're going to begin with democratic state rep claudia ordaz. look at you on the street, on the run. >> we literally just landed about an hour ago. we're here, ready to work, ready
6:20 pm
to fight. it's been a long session, and as you know, the governor called another special session, but there's nothing special about it. it's a voter suppression session is what we're calling it. >> so, let's do this -- deal with the criticism and then you tell me how you think it's constructive. the criticism is you want to go to work, get back to texas. this is a publicity stunt. you ran to d.c. because you can't do the job back home. >> absolutely not. we're using the tools we have in our toolbox to ensure that we're going to protect the rights of not only texans but americans for the right to vote, their freedom to vote. this is happening all over the country. this isn't happening just in texas. the trump administration was not happy with the results so you're seeing states from all across the country that are taking these contdrastic measures and trying to suppress the vote. we're here to lobby our democrat colleagues, republican
6:21 pm
colleagues here in congress, the biden administration, that we need help. we can't do this alone. this is the second time we've done this. as you mentioned, we're risking arrest. we're risking a whole lot to be here. but we all know, we've come unified, this is that important. >> what are you hoping to achieve in washington, d.c.? are you really going to stay for the month while they finish their session? whatever it takes, chris. we're here to fight, here to work. like i said, we used all the tools we could. we fought. it have a depressing session. we worked so hard to even get amendments on the bill to not make it a -- it was a bad bill, and it was still -- we still worked so hard to get these amendments to make it somewhat tolerable, but it was still a bad bill, and all of those were stripped. they just rammed this through. it was a 24-hour hearing. over 400 people testified against this harmful piece of
6:22 pm
legislation and they just rammed it through. there's just no other choice but for us to be here to fight, and we're hoping and urging our colleagues in congress to take up that fight. >> there is an interesting -- help me understand the mind of democrat here on this level. you're going to washington to basically tell the democrats in the senate, listen, forget the filibuster. you got to blow it up and pass this because it's too important. and yet you're kind of availing yourself of the same remedy on the state level. you're a minority, and you are gumming up the works because you are afraid of what will happen if you go there and the votes p predominate. so aren't you asking on the federal level to take away the exact kind of tool you are using right now to stop something from happening in texas? >> i mean, what options are we left with here? i mean, we're -- there's folks that are upset that we left.
6:23 pm
they quote/unquote say we're abandoning our ships and we're going opposite. we're exhausted. like i said, it was a terrible, terrible session, and we know the power rests at the end of the day with this administration, with congress to help us. we shouldn't have a piecemeal system with different voting legislation. it should be across the board, but we need that help. >> state representative claudia ordaz perez, i don't want to you stay in one place too long. that's how they find you. just kidding. i'm going ask you the questions about the tactics but i understand, and we'll see how it turns out. thank you and good luck. we'll switch to the other side of this. the republicans. they got the votes. okay, because they had an election, they're in the majority and they will make the rules. but why do they need to make these rules? especially after an election that gop officials called smooth
6:24 pm
and secure? that's the quote. republican james white is a texas state representative. >> thanks for having me, chris. good to be on. >> democrats had to run away because it is the only way to stop you from restricting the rights of people to vote in texas. do you accept the criticism that those are the stakes? >> no, i do not accept that criticism, and first, let me just say, i don't want to cast any unnecessary aspersions or assertions on my democrat colleagues. we have not gavelled in yet, so we do not know if we will have a corum or not. i'm hearing reports in the media. i guess i'll see when we gavel in. >> the numbers are there or not.
6:25 pm
let's get to the substance, though. the governor came forward and said, look, we don't know about any fraud in this state. the elections happen. we've heard some concerns but i have no reason to believe anything went wrong. he never offered any proof subsequent to that, but now you guys believe the most pressing concern is for you to make it harder to vote. what are you fixing? >> yes, thank you for that, chris. look, i have been in the legislature now six sessions. roughly 200 or so bills are filed every session in the elections committee, and they have addressed issues like fraud, mail balloting, ballot harvesting, making sure veterans in combat zones have to access to the ballot. so, these bills are filed every session on these issues, and i don't really see any difference
6:26 pm
in what we're doing this session. >> well, here's a couple differences. >> okay. >> everything you just named there about access and expansion. that's not what you're doing with this bill. most notably -- i'll tell you which one bothers me. we'll limit it to that for time. why would you ever reduce the legal standard for state officials to overturn an election? why would you go from clear and convincing to preponderance? look, for most people that doesn't matter, but why would you lower the level? why make it easier? >> yeah, thank you for that question, chris. that was probably some language in an earlier version of the bill during a regular session. right now we're in the special session. i sit on the committee for constitutional rights that heard this bill for 24 hours over the last weekend. that language is not in this bill. >> so you took it out?
6:27 pm
>> yes, that language is not in this version of the bill. the bill i'm reading in some instances increases hours for early voting, actually asks more of our counties to offer more time for folks to early vote. so, look, that language was probably in some earlier versions weeks ago, but that language is not in the house -- >> are you sure? because i'm being told it's in hb-3 and s-1. >> i don't know about sb-1. i'm not in the senate. >> but is it in hb-3? >> no. >> are you sure of that? >> i am confident. >> that's makes -- because you're laying the judiciary to take an election. and we all know that we really don't want politicians or even courts deciding our elections.
6:28 pm
we want people deciding them. but even the other things that are in this bill -- there is obviously an eye toward making it harder. bills that would give poll workers access to the ballots. okay. prohibits them from being removed for breaking the law. increases penalties for any election worker who intentionally or knowingly accepts a poll worker. these are not like the bills you named originally about giving more access to this, more access to that. it's making it easier to check, easier to chill, and easier to question the count. those are not expansive, representative, are they? >> could i address those? >> please. last word to you. >> yes, sir. chris, poll watchers have been in our election code for some time. the language that you're saying is that the election judge has
6:29 pm
to be able to -- the election judge or one of the election workers has to be able to see the illegal action in order to have to poll worker removed. also in the bill there's direct language that directs the election judge to call law enforcement if they see the need to remove poll watchers. poll watchers, their role is very, very narrow at the polling place as well. they're only there to watch. they're not there to get in the way of the voter, not to interfere with the voter. >> i understand that. i'm just saying the idea that it's expansive. it would ban drive-through voting and expand hours during early voting. harris county, 10,000, 15,000
6:30 pm
votes during overnight locations. go ahead. >> drive-through voting is not expressly in the statute now. drivup voting is for seniors and those who are ill, that's in the statute now. 24-hour voting is not expresley in statute now, so what i'm talking about is the expansion of voting hours from current statute to what's proposed. >> right, but it would be less than what it was during the pandemic. >> well, again, drive-through voting and 24-hour voting is not expressly -- >> i know, but they were done without incident, without major reports of fraud. >> let's do this. you guys haven't gavelled in yet. gavel in. you're invited back here to talk about what's in the final papers you vote on. >> i hope so. >> no need to hope. it's a given.
6:31 pm
if i say it's going to happen, it's going to happen. state representative james white, thank you for taking the opportunity. >> thank you, sir. we'll keep covering it. i don't see how it expands. he's right, it's not in the letter of law now. they changed the law because of the pandemic and it wound up expanding voting. why would you now want to create a law that does less of what worked? ask yourself that. okay, in the middline of wh happened at cpac, you've got trump all in on the big lie, but he did have a moment of truth. >> if it's bad, i say it, it's fake. if it's good, i say that's the most accurate poll perhaps ever. >> why doesn't this work for everybody? honestly. why can't the rest of us admit that we only like what's good for us, and we will tell you
6:32 pm
anything we don't like is fake and wrong and you will laugh and enjoy it? you know why it works for him? me either. but we're going to discuss it. now, if you look at one of the reasons it works for him, it's because he has dedicated outlets that do nothing but won't tell you the bad and emphasize the good. fox, state tv, hate tv, has to run a disclaimer over part of trump's speech to counter his lies. you want to know why? i'll tell you, next.

trump says there was love in the air on january 6th that, they were peaceful people, great people. it's a lie. and you, mr. trump, and your minions will never rewrite history. you'll never change reality. this was the reality, and we'll always show it. trump lying like my dog having gas. bothers me every time, but i'm not surprised and he never lets on he's the one fouling the air. but here is what's interesting. fox put this on the screen when trump was lying in an earlier speech about voting fraud. the voting system companies
6:37 pm
denied the various allegations made by president trump and his counsel regarding the 2020 election. well, at least they're doing the right thing, fox, moral move. no, no, no, they're trying to stay out of legal trouble. they're getting sued for reckless disregard for truth, meaning they know that what they're allowing to be spread without being checked, and fanned by all their people, they know it's not true. and they can say -- you know, at nighttime it's opinion. it's not news. and they can say in open court, you know, carlson, he should not be taken seriously. but that's not enough when you keep doing bad things, and you know it's wrong. donie o'sullivan is in dallas talking to people who attended cpac. donie, what are you hearing? >> reporter: we spoke to probably 20 or 30 people here at cpac about inside and outside the event this weekend, and
6:38 pm
look, pretty much everybody believes the election was stolen. they falsely believe the election was stolen. that's a pretty sad thing. they're losing faith in american democracy. on the other sort of far end of the conspiracy theory spectrum, there's a conspiracy theory that the department of justice is very worried about, this idea that trump could be reinstated, that in some way the election eight months ago could be overturned. have a listen to this one woman. what are you hoping to hear from trump? >> that he is going to regain his rightful seat as president. >> in 2024? >> no. >> when? >> as soon as the election is overturned for the election fraud. >> people are thinking the wrong thing, but you have some people thinking about what to do about it if it doesn't happen, and if that takes the shape of violence. what have you heard about that?
6:39 pm
>> reporter: absolutely. this is the dangerous thing, right? to be fair, most trump supporters we talked to, even though they believed the election was stolen, they haven't bought into the idea he's going to be reinstated. but for the people who have bought into that idea it's very, very real for them. i spoke to a trump supporter two weeks in ohio and he mentioned there could be a civil war if trump's not reinstated. that's the rhetoric we were hearing in the leadup to january 6th. but alas in all of this at cpac this weekend, i want to play sound from one republican who has a grasp on reality. have a listen. so, you are one of the very few people i am likely to meet here this weekend who will tell me that biden won the election fairly. >> that's unfortunate. i got to -- i got to have the evidence. i got to see it. if you tell me you're going to release the kraken.

show me the kraken. show me a piece. show me something, and don't tell me to go to mr. pillowman's website to get the information. >> reporter: so there you have it, one guy that we met this weekend who has a grasp on reality. look, i mean, i laugh, but it is a very serious thing. it's a pretty sad thing, chris. a lot of folks that we have met, they truly, truly have bought into these conspiracy theories, and they truly believe american democracy is a joke and they're talking about they might not ever trust an election again because they bought into this big lie. >> i tell you what, that guy's living up to the ethos of being a biker. he had that harley, that head band on. that's what those guys are about. they're independent people, you make the case, and they're not going to believe anything just because it's said. that's part of the biker

a amok. the problems aren't up there, they're down here. use the money for that. >> we can do both, right? we can take care of problems down here but also use this space experience to help solve those problems that we have on earth. that's what we have been doing for decades, so i don't know what he is different. i guess the only thing that's different about this is it's a private sector trying to build these crafts that are going to be taking tourists everywhere. i think it's a great thing because, one, it helps the economy, and i guess one way we can really tax our rich. >> that's an interesting spin. you get them to put up the money to fuel the exploration, and then the rest of the society can kind of, you know, get a piece of any of the benefits. so, this new wave of opportunity, what does this mean for you? >> hmm, well for me personally, i don't know if i'll ever make it into space. i wish i could. i'm certified and ready to go,

and it was way more than four months of training, by the way. >> oh, i'm sorry, correct me on it. >> it was six months of training, and it was a condensed -- it takes years to train, but they condensed it because i had a little time line to be on. but it was crazy. the training was very insane. but i was going on a mission to the iss and lived there for seven days and had experiments and all that, so it's completely different from the space tourism now where it's just a fun roller coaster to go up and experience zero g for a couple of minutes. but i had a few things i really wanted to do up there. >> let me get your take on something else while i have you. you came up with britney spears. you understand the ups and downs. we have been covering it on the show, not so much from a britney angle as a this doesn't make sense angle. can you help us understand any part of the dynamic?
6:49 pm
