tv   Don Lemon Tonight  CNN  July 23, 2021 7:00pm-8:00pm PDT

7:00 pm
i'm cautiously hopeful. >> you accidently gave us hope there. >> that's the last thing i would ever want to do. [ laughter ] ♪ ♪ thanks for joining us, everyone. this is "done lemon tonight." did you think this would happen? did you think we'd have miracle vaccines, the envy of the entire world and so many of us would refuse to just roll up our sleeves and get the shot? we have all vaccines that we could ever need, some states may actually need to start getting rid of unused doses because there is just not enough interest. the waste of human life and life saving doses. no other way to describe it. really sickening. literally. the cdc saying the daily average of people getting fully
7:01 pm
vaccinated is hitting another low. the lowest its been since the end of january and this is happening as the delta variant is fueling outbreaks across this country. more than 43,000 new covid cases every day. 43,000. more than 43,000 every single day. that's what vaccine he is take is doing to us. the biden administration health official telling cnn quote we're seeing the consequences of what we've been warning about for a month. it's serious and it's spreading faster than was anticipated. that's a quote. both biden and trump's surgeon's general came on cnn and said even vaccinated people might want to mask up. >> those are all circumstances where people may make the decision to actually go the extra mile, be cautious and wear masks especially in indoor s settings. >> if you're in a high prevalence area, consider masks up if you're vaccinated.
7:02 pm
if you're unvaccinated especially, mask it up. >> how often do you see that kind of agreement? right? "the new york times" reporting senior administration officials expect people who are, listen to this closely, people who are 65 and older or who have compromised immune systems, they will like ly need a booster sho from pfizer or moderna. 65 and older if you're immune compromised, pfizer and moderna, you might need to get a booster shot so pay close attention. but that's happening as more patients than before, 48%. the governor of my home state saying louisiana is in the fourth surge of covid infections with only 36% of the state fully vaccinated. louisiana now has the highest growth rate in cases per capita in the entire country.
7:03 pm
and the governor is calling for new measures including mask wearing indoors for everyone. >> this really is the perfect storm. and the conditions are right for catastrophic outcomes for far too many individuals and families. >> louisiana, a red state but not just democrats like the governor is a democrat. not just like a democratic governor edwards who sees the writing on the wall. now republicans are catching on with more and more red state governors speaking out. >> you've got to get vaccinated now, and so all i would say is this delta thing is coming. >> unvaccinated missouriens are the primary target of this new covid-19 strain. >> you need to turn up for the volume for this one because i want you to listen to alabama governor kay ivy.
7:04 pm
her state is 33.9% vaccinated. she's very blunt about who is to blame. >> the new cases in covid because of unvaccinated folks almost 100% of the new hospitalizations are with unvaccinated folks and the deaths certainly ocho consicon -- occurring with unvaccinated folks. these folks are choosing a horrible lifestyle of self-inflected pain. it is time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks, it's the unvaccinated folks letting us down. >> governor kay ivy. let's remember, a republican. red state. let's remember those unvaccinated people are not just the people who are vaccine hesitant or resistant who believe the misinformation. let's remember that children under 12 cannot get vaccinated yet. and it's up to the rest of us to
7:05 pm
protect them. and with all of this going on with that delta variant changing everything, the gop is split right down the middle. on one side you have governors like kay ivy, lawmakers like mitch mcconnell urging people to get vaccinated. on the other side, you have people like the -- i hate talking about her but she's spreading misinformation, the qanon congresswoman in the face of rising covid cases across the country still spreading lies claiming that democrats want panic so that they can control you. okay. whatever. this after she compared vaccination out reach efforts to nazi era brown brown shirts. she's an elected official. what the -- what? first misinformation and the divisionviolet rioters
7:06 pm
on the quite united states capi. i want you to listen to republican senator tom cotton who apparently thinks it's a bad thing for what he calls public health burocrats to consider what is the best interest of public health. >> if you turn these decisions over to public health bureaucrats, the only thing they will consider is what they think is in the best interest of public health. >> duh. yeah, because that's their job. [ laughter ] >> it's right there in the title. come on, tom cotton. and listen to the congressional republicans. most of them doctors turning a discussion of the delta variant into, wait for it, democrat bashing. >> this is an evil virus. it's killed over 600,000
7:07 pm
americans, millions worldwide and yet, speaker pelosi refuses to hold a hearing on how this started. >> every american has been negatively impacted in someway by the covid-19 virus. the question is, why are democrats stone walling our efforts to uncover the origin of the covid virus. >> how many of the democrats are willing to say whether or not they've been vaccinated. >> it our patriotic duty to care for other people but also our patriotic duty to understand we have individual rights in this country. >> oh, boy. and then there's what's going on over at the fox propaganda network where steve hayes lit into what he called charlotte ton's and hawkers to the right. >> the only reason we're having this debate about potentially having to go back to masks is because you have irresponsible people who are pretending there is no difference between being vaccinated and between being unvaccinated. many of those are charlotte tons and hucksters on the right just
7:08 pm
asking questions mode pretending that there's really not much to know about being unvaccinated versus being vaccinated or that there's not real scientific evidence that being vaccinated provides an advantage, a significanted eadvantage to surviving and getting infected in the first place and surviving any covid infection you have. >> yeah, that didn't go well. that left a mark, i'm sure whoever he's talking to disagreed with the truth. so, you know, chuck ters on the right paging tucker charleston and laura ingraham. the fact is there are people over on that network in all honesty who have talked about the importance of getting vaccinated and some of them are taking covid seriously. we told you the other night that sean hannity said he believes in the science of vaccination, you know the vaccinations that could save your life but apparently, for some reason, he didn't like getting credit for that because
7:09 pm
now he is saying this. >> i never told anyone to get a vaccine. i've been very clear. i am simply not qualified. i am not a medical doctor. i know nothing about your medical history or your current medical condition. i think it inappropriate for me to do so. >> that's a cop occupant, sean. you know better than that. you know better than that. if you believe in the science, you just said it all but without saying it. it's always like a hesitation. i believe in the science but check with your doctor and all these caveats. it shameful. it shows you how crazy this has gotten when sean hannity feels like he has to backtrack after saying that it makes sense for many people, many americans to get vaccinated.
7:10 pm
backtracked from the truth that the base doesn't want to hear. the misinformation taking its toll on our health is just like the misinformation that took its toll on january 6th. that's when violent ryeioters stormed the united states capitol when they beat hero police officers trying to defend the seat of our democracy to within an inch of their lives. now the house select committee on january 6th is set to start hearings next week. that as democrats are at odds over the battle for voting rights, our most sacred rights as americans, rights generations of us have fought and died for just days ahead of a selma style march in texas where a restrictive bill was stalled when democratic lawmakers fled the state. civil rights leaders are urging the white house to do more to fight for black and brown voters. i'll talk tomarchers
7:11 pm
for beto o'rourke in a few minutes but listen to this exchange. this is an exchange i had with the president of the united states joe biden at our cnn town hall. >> this is important for people who look like me. my grandmother would sit around when i was a kid, fifth grade, at a fifth grade education. i learned that she couldn't read when i was doing my homework. she would tell me stories about people asking her to count the number of jelly beans in the jar or the soap and so why is protecting the filler buster, is that more important than protecting voting rights, especially for the people that fought and died for that? >> no, it's not. i want to see the united states congress, the united states senate pass s 1 and s 4 of the john lewis act and get it to my desk so i can sign it, but here is the deal, what i also what. to do, i want to make sure we bring alongto do, i want to
7:12 pm
bring alongto do, i want to make sure we bring alongto do, i want to make sure we bring along to do, i want to make sure we bring along democrats, also bring along republicans that know better than that and i don't want to get wrapped upright now in the argument whether or not this is all about the filibuster. >> the right for your vote to be counted in a free and fair election, that's what it's about. that's what those rioters at the capitol were trying to take away. it all comes back to this, the lies and misinformation took their toll on january 6th. now, those lies that misinformation taking their toll on our health. because you know that delta variant, it is spreading. vaccinations plummeting. communities across the country calling for vaccinated and unvaccinated people to wear masks. and you know what you wouldn't have to do this if people got vaccinated. that's the whole point. if you want freedom and liberty, get vaccinated and you have freedom and liberty and won't
7:13 pm
have to wear a mask. where is america headed in the fight against covid is the question? >> the covid-19 deaths and hospitalizations are today among the unvaccinated people and i know, i know this has gotten a bit politicized but i hope it started a change. it's not about red states or blue states or guys like that hollering, it's about life and it's about death. okay, imagine this... your mover, rob, he's on the scene and needs a plan with a mobile hotspot. we cut to downtown, your sales rep lisa has to send some files, asap! so basically i can pick the right plan for each employee... yeah i should've just led with that... with at&t business... you can pick the best plan for each employee and only pay for the features they need.
7:14 pm
age-related macular degeneration may lead to severe vision loss.
7:15 pm
so the national eye institute did 20 years of clinical studies on a formula only found in preservision. if it were my vision, i'd ask my doctor about preservision. it's the most studied eye vitamin brand. if it were my vision, i'd look into preservision. only preservision areds2 contains the exact nutrient formula recommended by the nei to help reduce the risk of moderate to advanced amd progression. i have amd. it is my vision so my plan includes preservision. at philadelphia, we know what makes the perfect schmear of cream cheese. the recipe we invented over 145 years ago and me...the world's best, and possibly only, schmelier. philadelphia. schmear perfection.

icy hot. ice works fast. heat makes it last. feel the power of contrast therapy, so you can rise from pain.
7:17 pm
we're back, everyone. as the covid pandemic worsens with the rapid spread of the delta variant and the steep drop in vaccinations, there is growing divisions among republicans, gop governors for example are showing their frustration at the explosion of cases in their states while many of their residents who are refusing to get vaccinated are listening to misinformation from right wing media and politicians. let discuss now. mark is the former advisor to george w. bush and john mccain and also the executive producer of "the circus" on show time and anna navarro joins us, as well. we need to center anna up, i think you need to move your computer. yeah. okay. here we go.
7:18 pm
mark, so let's talk about this before we get to what the the governors are saying, you have a personal story in your own family, you want to share it to us? do you mind? >> sure, it's unfortunate but it's the sort of thing we need to share because this is something that nobody escapes. i think most american families had some interception with the disease and mine has now. my brother-in-law who is a strong anti-vaxxer, strong anti maxer, strong fox supporter, strong trump supporter who thought he was vulnerable is spending his eighth day in the hospital with covid and it pretty serious and we don't know w when he's getting out. this is prime example. we're seeing with governors you talked about and people who had been proactive about it at the very least are now discovering that this isn't inescapable. i think the cdc director said
7:19 pm
with this new variant, if you're not vaccinated, it's not a matter of if but when you're gel -- get it. >> the mayor of alabama kay ivy is saying the same. she's fed up. >> what is it going to take to get people shots in their arms? >> i don't know. you tell me. folks supposed to have common sense. but it's time for them to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. it's the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down. >> as the leader of the state, don't you think it's your responsibility to help get cont? >> i've done all i know how to do. i can encourage you to do something but can't make you take care of yourself. >> amen, governor. anna, you're in florida and have lots of vaccine resistance there. she wants people to get the vaccine there. her state is the least vaccinated state in the country.
7:20 pm
do you think hearing from her can make a difference with hesitant or people unwilling in alabama? >> look, i think it helps to create a momentum. i think the more they hear it from the most amount of people, the better. and this didn't happen in one day. this poll iticalization of covi and vaccines has been happening for a year now. first the masks. then it was demonizin i izing f. the republican congress people refusing to wear masks and paying the fine because they didn't compile with nancy p pelosi's mandate. governors banning mass mandates governors like in my state selling campaign swag demonizing fauci and banning cruise lines for asking for proof of vaccination. it's been a steady stream of things that have happened that have led to the poll lititicalin
7:21 pm
and i don't think they were counting on the delta variant. i hear republicans say it not just republicans. african-americans and latinos also have hesitancy and low vaccination rates, let me tell you the difference. i am yet to hear one african-american elected leader or one la t latino elected lead out there and bang the drums on people not getting vaccinated. people are doing everything they can to try to get our communities, which have their own issues to get vaccinated but instead on the republican side, you have people saying at cpac they're not going to get vaccinated and getting a round of applause. come on, folks. assume responsibility for what is happening and i'm glad you're changing your tune finally. >> to add to that, a big part of the problem is all the noise from right wing media, you know that. sean hannity earlier this week told his viewers to take covid seriously and he believed in the
7:22 pm
science to clarify last night he never told anyone to get the vaccine. he doesn't want credit for that. is the gop -- is that hurting us and our chances of defeating this deadly virus? answer my question yes, it's hurting us. what do you do? >> it's not hurting us. it's killing us. we made death political now. the virus and masking and vaccination, they have become the ultimate political weapon and we can start with donald trump and take it to fox and hannity and everybody else that promoted the notion it was no big deal and you didn't need a mask and you didn't need to get vaccinated. our loved ones are being killed and sick in the hospitals and finally, it's taken that to get some of the rest of my family to take vaccinations so it's only when it affects a loved one and it's really sad and unfortunate that it's gotten to that point where we're losing loved ones or loved ones are sick in hospitals across this country and this
7:23 pm
delta variant, if it doesn't get you now, it will if you don't get vaccinated. >> you're an adult, do what you want to do. i encourage everyone to get vaccinated but if you're an adult with kids in your home and children and you're not getting vaccinated, i don't -- i really don't know what to say to you. >> but don -- >> yeah? >> i think it's important we recognize -- >> no -- >> i think it's em por importan recognize the republicans that have done this right. people like the governor of arkansas, west virginia governor and mike in ohio. governors that put their constituents above politics, of course, they're not running for president. they're not seeking the republican nomination in 2024 and not capitalizing and ex exploiting this issue for political purposes but it's enough. they are keeping us from reaching herd immunity and instead, we reached herd stupidity and it needs to stop. >> mark, you were saying?
7:24 pm
>> well, just that this has been so politicized now, don, it's taken losing loved ones or loved ones getting in the hospital and getting sick. the good news, at least from my point of view is the rest of some of my family who are not getting vaccinated are rushing out to get vaccinated. it taken something that's really been a crisis in our family for this to happen but i hope that the word is getting out now and that it gets across to other people unvaccinated. >> mark, before we go, how much -- we've been on television for almost -- well, it's a year and a half, right? a little bit longer. how much evidence do they need when they saw the hundreds of thousands of people dying from covid in the height of it. >> don, this is my point. i couldn't love my brother-in-law more than i do, but he is -- he's a smart guy but it became completely
7:25 pm
political for him. he's smart enough to know about what vaccines do. he worked in science all his life but became a statement. like democrats, this is good for democrats if, you know, covid was bad for donald trump and it's good for democrats. it got that black and white. and so that if he acknowledged that covid was a problem and got the vaccination, he was saying maybe the democrats are right and that's why he refused, i guess. i still haven't gotten a clear answer. >> boy, oh, boy, all right. >> don, listen, republicans are so good at creating issues of outrage that drive people to the poll. and they chose this as one of those issues to create outrage and drive people to the poll under -- >> but anna -- >> but the hypocrisy is that so many of those republicans that are banging the drums against vaccination are vaccinated themselves. >> yes, and anna -- >> including trump. >> including donald trump, including, you know, now steve
7:26 pm
scalise and all those people. here is the thing. i got to run but, you know, i've heard over the last couple of days that, you know, you shouldn't be -- don't say bad things about people who don't get the vaccine because then they'll feel like you're attacking them or whatever but how much more -- you got to call it what it is. if behavior is idiot and nonsensical, you have to tell people their behavior is idiot tick and nonsensical. how many people have to die for adults and why are adults believing people on the internet instead of science and experts? why are they believing donald trump who lies more than he tells the truth on any given day of the week?
7:27 pm
thank you both. and i hope that your brother-in-law and you know how much i love your wife, it's her brother. tell annie, we're thinking about her and thinking about him and i hope he gets better. >> thank you. >> thank you, mark, thank you, anna. good luck, mark. >> thanks. tension within the democratic party and activity e -- activists pushing president biden to take more action now than ever. stay with us. pushing president more action now than ever. stay with us.

president biden tonight slamming republicans accusing them of walking away from democratic principles -- minimizing what happened on january 6th. >> as democrats we have to show we do understand and delivering from them and keeping our promises. we just have to keep making the case just as the republican party today offers nothing but fear and lies and broken promises. listen. think about it. turn on the television every day and see a replay what happened on january 6th and saying i was told there were a lot of peaceful wonderful people. god, no, i really mean it. think about it. it is a bizarre. >> that as the president faces pressure over the battle for voting rights and whether to ditch the filibuster.
7:33 pm
some civil rights leaders with former democratic congressman beto o'rourke are planning to hold a march in texas. next week they will be marching 27 miles over four days starting wednesday from georgetown, texas to the state capitol in austin. beto o'rourke joins me now with reverend frederick haynes. gentlemen, thank you so much. this is very important. i'm glad you're here to discuss this. congressman, you know, i press the president, president biden about voting rights and the filibuster at this week's cnn town hall. watch this and then we'll talk about it. >> what i also want to do, i want to make sure we bring along not just all the democrats, we bring along republicans i now know better. they know better than this and what i don't want to do is get wrapped upright now in the argument whether or not this is all about the filler buster or -- look, the american public
7:34 pm
you can't stop them from voting. you tried last time. more people voted last time than any time in american history in the middle of the worst pandemic in american history. more people did. and they showed up. they're going to show up again. they're going to do it again. but what i want to do as i'm trying to bring the country together and i don't want the debate to only be about whether or not we have a filler must er or not we have a filler or not we have a filler must er or not we have a fil filibuster going back to the way the filibuster had to be used before. >> isn't that the only way to get it done now? >> no. >> if you agree with the former president, you call him your old bass it a relics of jim crow. >> it is. >> if it's a relics of jim crow, it's been used to fight against civil rights legislation historically, why protect it? >> no reason to protect it other than you'll throw the entire congress into chaos and nothing at all will get done and there
7:35 pm
is a lot out stake. >> congressman, what do you think about what he's saying and doing? >> you know, i think he's been so good and so outspoken on the threat that our democracy faces. that speech in philadelphia, he said this is the greatest attack on american democracy since the civil war. but we need him to take that next step, which i think you gave him the opportunity to take in that interview to say it will take political courage on the part of democrats to change the rules of this vesting of jim crow. we made exceptions for fast track trade deals, for supreme court justices, federal judges, budget reckononciliation, make fifth exception for voting rights. that's all we're talking about. he says he doesn't want this to be about democrats or republicans, we agree. we want every democrat and republican that's eligible to vote register, have it counted and ensure their voice is heard
7:36 pm
but we need his leadership on this and need it all the way or we're not going to get it done. >> all right. one more for you congressman before i get to the reverend, president biden also told me that he believes that he can bring along republicans who know better. you heard him there. do you think he understands what he's dealing with in terms of opposition and how far they've already been willing to go to suppress voting rights? i would think that he is but maybe he is trying to bring some folks along, maybe the cinemas and the mansions of the world so he can't really say publicly? i don't know. but i agree it going to take political courage to get it done so what do you think? >> i think his desire and drive to bring this country together including our political parties is the right one and we should support him in it but we must also recognize that senate republicans could not even muster ten votes to investigate the insurrection attempt on the
7:37 pm
6th of january that killed five people including a capitol police officer. if you can't find ten votes for that, i don't think you'll find ten votes to reauthorize the voting rights act or move forward on the for the people act. >> i asked that same thing. i said the folks in washington can't come together to investigate the worst attack on the capitol in 200 years, what makes you think they'll come together to do anything? so let me bring in the reverend now. reverend, you know, communities of color helped president biden get elected and this gop push against voting rights is going to hurt black and brown people the most. do you think the white house is doing enough to protect their rights, our rights to vote? >> i don't doubt the heart of joe biden. biden said when he was e llecte the black community always had his black and he said he's going to have our back. i think we have to define for
7:38 pm
him what having our back looks like and having our back in this moment looks like protecting not just black and brown communities, we're talking about democracy. what is going on in this nation right now is nol less than a wa on democracy and sadly, on the front lines of that war that will serve as the initial casualties will be of course, black, brown, and poor communities and so we're sayiin mr. president, it's time to have our back in a way we define and we are saying when you have our back, you have america's back and when you have our back, you recognize the ugly history in this country of denying access to the ballot box especially to black people and especially as we move toward august 6th where we talk about the anniversary of the passage of the voting rights act and as a consequence of that, it lets you know that we
7:39 pm
have been fighting for years to ensure the infranchisement of plaque black and brown people but sadly, since 1965 there is a constant battle to undermine that very powerful and wonderful bill so mr. president, have our back by ending the filibuster and doing everything in your power to pass both the for the people act and the john lewis voting rights act. >> listen, i haven't heard anybody put it the way you put it. p bravo for you. we need to define for the president what it means having black americans back. congressman, can you tell us about your march. what you're doing and what is going on, please? >> i'll be following dr. frederick haynes, bishop william barber and hundreds of other civil rights, voting rights, economic justice leaders from across the state of texas from georgetown to austin. it's about 30 miles and it will
7:40 pm
take place over the course of a few days from the 28th to the 30th of july. the 3 1st, this next saturday we will end that march at the state capitol in austin where we hope every texan of good conscious will come together and stand up to be counted for the right to vote. the right to ensure this democracy does not parish from the earth and that all of us can be counted, all of our voices can be heard and all of us have a say in the course and die direction our state and country takes. that's what america is and we want to preserve it, defend it, expand it and do everything within our power at this moment to come through. so that's how important this march is and we hope the people of texas will join us on the 31st of july at the state capitol in austin. >> that march next week is being built as a salma style march.
7:41 pm
thank you very much. appreciate joining us this evening. >> thank you. >> by the way, congressman, i channelled your outfit today but decided to wear a jacket instead. same shirt. i say this is my beto outfit. appreciate it. cases up, vaccines down and there is now talk among officials about whether people need a third shot. stay with us. ♪ (vo) the subaru crosstrek. dog tested. dog approved.

7:45 pm
welcome back. joining me now dr. jonathan reiner. doctor, good evening to you. "the new york times" is reporting the biden administration health officials are thinking people who are 65 or older who or who have compromised immune systems will need a third shot from pfizer or moderna. this is a shift from a few weeks ago. what do you think about this? what is going on? >> there is data coming from
7:46 pm
places like israel that suggest after a period of six to eight months, the efficacy of the mrna vaccines, particularly the pfizer vaccine may start to wayne and that's unclear if it maybe lower levels of neutralizing antibodies or whether it's just that we have the prevalence of these more chance tran missble aggressive strains like delta. we always expected at some point we needed to boost and i expect we'll start doing that with the folks that are most vulnerable who are holder or immune compromised in someway. probably, eventually, everybody in this country will need a booster in the next several months. that doesn't surprise me. >> let me give the numbers from what you said because you said this follows what we're learning out of israel and the data suggesting the pfizer's vaccinefectiveness against the coronavirus has fallen and the numbers says 39% last month it was 64%.
7:47 pm
to be clear, doctor, right, it's still protecting people, right? it protects against a severe disease of over 90% but does that drop concern for you? >> i'm not sure what the real number is because we have data, recent data that comes out of the united kingdom showing a sustained efficacy of 88% for the pfizer vaccine. so i'm not sure how to reconcile the differences between the two studies, what is very clear is that this vaccine in particular, the pfizer vaccine and moderna vaccines, very robust protection against serious illness and death. to give you an example, there have been about 3700 hospitalizations in the united states of fully vaccinated people. that sounds like a big number except the denominator is 170 million. so there are 170 million americans who have been vaccinated, 3700 hospitalized.
7:48 pm
and almost no deaths. so 3700 divided by 170 million is .002%. >> there you go, yeah. >> so the risk of hospitalization is incredibly small if you've been vaccinated. these vaccines work and work very well. >> i want to put this up for the viewers. i'll explain. this is a map and there are lighter green parts there. lighter green states are the least vaccinated, okay? and then we keep hearing how it is now a pandemic of the unvaccinated but kids under 12 really don't have a choice in this. they're at risk because the people who are choosing -- because of the people who are choosing not to get the vaccine. the president and president biden and trump's surgeon again reals, surgeons agaigeneral i sd say both told cnn just tonight even vaccinated people might want to start masking up indoors. where is this rheaded?
7:49 pm
