tv New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar CNN July 30, 2021 2:59am-4:00am PDT
♪ good morning to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world, i'm john berman with brianna keilar. it is friday, july 30th. we have breaking news this morning. the war has changed. that is the chilling take away from an alarming new sbenl cdc document that states that the delta variant likely causes more severe disease than the earlier strains of covid. and, it's just as infectious as chickenpox. the cdc slide presentation obtained by "the washington post" and confirmed by cnn confirms the variants spread faster, easier than flu, the common cold, ebola, sars and contains unpublished data that says vaccinated people may spread the virus as easily as unvaccinated people when breakthrough infections occur.
>> this is the data behind cdc officials making the latest controversial decision on masks. the full data will be published today in the internal presentation tells us that the cdc has come to the conclusion it must revamp its public messaging to emphasize vaccinations. the president of access health international and a former professor at harvard medical school. if you could, there is a lot that we have learned from these slides and this washington post report, but if you would just give us your biggest take away from this cdc document. >> the biggest take away is we have to look at covid, not as an episodic fight but as a major change in our environment. it's pretty much like climate change. it doesn't help to fight one fire at a time or the weather change to prepare for one hurricane at a time. this is something that's going to come at us again and again.
it's changing. it's like the flu, but it's much more deadly. some of us had predicted that this will happen with the virus. we've underestimated it from the very beginning that it wouldn't come to our shores, our borders would be protective, that it would not really spread and go away, that our vaccines would be totally protective. we've underestimated this. and it's time to consider this as a very long haul. we can do it. vaccines will work to protect you from dying. they will work to protect many people from being infected. but we need multimodel approaches. a whole system approach and a global approach and we haven't got it yet. >> professor, i think you leaned into what is one of the most important take aways is this, the vaccines are more important than ever. herd -- this notion of herd immunity, where we are with covid right now and the delta variant dispels we can beat this
into submission. why does it make vaccines more important? >> because they protect your life. they provide a very good barrier, just like flu. we know you can die from flu if you don't get your vaccine. so we get our annual vaccines. but that doesn't mean that flu has gone away. we have to keep vigilant. i hope that this experience with us is going to change our overall approach to infectious disease, so we get ventilation for our schools. we get ventilation for our office buildings. it really makes a difference. that in the winter we begin to wear masks to stop colds and flu. we've got to up our game in terms of research. so we really have a series of drugs that when you're exposed you pop a pill. we have one of those for new now. we need those for many different diseases. we need an all-society approach. and i think the analysis is right. this is a different game. it's not a battle. it's a war. >> there's one cdc slide in here that was obtained by cnn that
says the delta variant vaccine breakthrough cases may be as transmissible as unvaccinated cases. i think a lot of people had been acting as if and the guidance quite frankly reflected that if you were vaccinated you couldn't spread this. but that is not the case here. >> there's two things that aren't the case, one, you can't spread it and two you're not going to get sick. some people have gotten very sick who have already been vaccinated. it's only a matter of time before some people die. what happens with the vaccines they give very good protection for a few months. then it begins to fade. and the viruses that are changing make that even worse. this isn't the same virus the vaccine was designed to fight, just like last year's flu vaccine isn't the vaccine that's designed to fight this year's flu. we have to keep up with this. it's a full-court press. it will be a lot longer struggle than many of us believed.
it doesn't mean that we give up. it means we fight harder and we get to where we want to be. and we all participate. >> no. i think it shows how much more important the fight really is, that the vaccines are the key to keeping people healthy and safe. i do understand that breakthrough infections happen, but it's still small number, right? talking about 35,000 -- >> that is really not -- >> hang, professor. because i understand they're measuring 35,000 symptomatic infections. there are probably far more than that. far more that aren't being measured and maybe they should be counted right now. but the story still is that that's, you know, that's not the majority of cases here. it is a small percentage of cases that are causing symptomatic infections and, yes, some of the vulnerable, some of the immuno suppressed may fall even if they are vaccinated but the story is how important the vaccines still are. >> john, i don't want to change that story. that is the ultimate story that
without that nothing. vaccines are absolutely critical. but we have to add other components to the fight. with respect to how well vaccines protect you. it's a matter of both how long you've been vaccinated, because it fades over time and it fades faster for older people. and what variant is out there. it's not an absolute. so, we've got to keep our eye on the ball. that's what is happening. we're learning more and more about what's going on. it isn't the stories that's changing. it's a situation that's changing. and we have to adapt. vaccines, again, as you have said are absolutely critical. but that isn't enough. one thing i said is we need to start getting profill lactic drugs. so if you're exposed you can be contact traced and everybody who has been in contact with somebody infected pop a pill. drugs exist today for flu. we need to have such drugs to add to what i call multimodel
covid control. vaccines, drugs and good public health behavior, as well as a global cooperation because this is a global fight. just like climate change. >> yeah. i think we're seeing the areas where there is a -- it's essential that we improve in many of these areas as country and really just across the world we're seeing that. professor, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> you're welcome. thank you. new york city mayor bill de blasio says new guidance on indoor mask use in new york city will come as soon as monday. it was only back in may that new yorkers were allowed to go mask free indoors after a year of restrictions and lockdowns. hit businesses hard. the prospect of indoor masking is not sitting well with eli kline, new york city art gallery owner. he tweeted out a mask mandate is a slow down for all indoor entertainment venues, stadiums, gyms, theaters, concerts, clubs,
malls, stores, et cetera. people don't want to do these things if they have to cover their face. and eli kline joins me here now in studio. very nice to see you. >> thanks for having me, john. >> thank you for being willing to speak out what you're willing to see and feeling and come on and talk about it now. you really don't want to go back to mask indoors in your gallery. >> well, it's not just about my gallery, it's about new york city generally. if we are subject to sweeping mask mandates now in the summer, you know, let's be honest, we don't know when covid levels will ever be lower than they are now in new york city. and that could put us on a slippery slope to all kinds of the same restrictions that we were subject to last year. i mean, things like micro cluster targeting and capacity limits and business shutdowns. it's not just the mask. i think none of us have a problem just putting on a mask. it's really much more than that.
it's a blueprint for indefinite government restrictions in new york which we've had vaccines available for everyone 12 plus for many months. and there has to be an end game. there has to be an off ramp. >> we'll talk about vaccines in just a second. i want to know because you've been listening, here for the beginning of the show, you heard the news about the delta variant, how much more contagious it could be and the fact it could make people even sicker. does that have any impact on your view? >> no. obviously it's catastrophic news. and it's something we should all take very seriously. we've been taking covid very seriously since the beginning. and it doesn't impact my view with respect to reimplementing restrictions. the fact of the matter is that these vaccines are widely available. they're extraordinarily effective. and you know, it's a matter of obviously there's issues with personal risk tolerance and
whatnot, but it doesn't change the fact that reimplementing mask mandates in new york city would stunt our recovery, would diminish tourism and many aspects of life. it would crush businesses that have already been crushed. >> okay. so you don't like the idea of mask mandates. what about vaccine mandates? >> vaccine mandates is a different question. i think the main problem that i have in new york city, for example, is the discriminatory aspect of it to be honest. what happened in new york is we really -- these lockdowns pushed the burden to essential workers and to minorities who are -- >> but vaccines are available to everybody. >> but they were infected disprop disproportionately, vaccine hesitant disproportionately, over 60% of blacks in new york city aren't vaccinated, but they have higher level of natural immunity, of infection conferred immunity that isn't considered
vaccinated by the cdc when the data is clear it should be. >> why not hang a sign on your gallery that says you can come in here unmasked if you're vaccinated or if you test negative for covid? >> well, i mean, i think people know the rules. >> no. would that -- would you be okay with the situation where you can come in unmasked, you don't have to wear a mask if you're unvaccinated? >> there's no government guidelines right that are forcing me to do that, so -- >> but you could. >> i could do anything. we could always do things to be more safer. >> but if your concern is that people don't want to come in to your gallery, which i hear is wonderful, by the way. >> thank you. >> masked, well then have them unmaxed but vaccinated. >> i just want to be clear my concern isn't selfish. it's not based on people coming into my gallery. my concern is i'm a lifelong new yorker. born and raised in greenwich village. my concern is for new york in general and reimplementing these restrictions. >> mask restrictions.
>> mask restriction leads to every restriction. we know that. we've seen it. >> do you consider vaccine requirements to be a restriction? >> are they technically a restriction, i suppose so, if someone is checking vaccine status upon entry it is. my biggest problem with that is that that effectively bans 60% of black people in new york from my gallery, for example. and am i prepared to ban the majority of black people from visiting my gallery, absolutely not, john. >> well, let's hope we get more people vaccinated. >> i agree with you completely. >> eli, thank you for being with us. really appreciate the discussion. it's an important discussion to be having. >> i appreciate you having me. thank you so much. breaking news, right now the first group of afghan interpreters who helped americans arriving in the u.s. as they face execution back home. we are there live. plus, does congressman mo brooks admitting he wore body armor on january 6th impact his defense in the lawsuit filed

i want to read to you a line from his statement this morning saying, quote, most of all i want to thank these brave afghans for standing with the united states and today i'm proud to say to them, welcome home. but frankly this is a tr treacherous journey many have gone through because of the threats they're facing at home from the taliban. we spoke with a few of them this week who underscored just how urgent it is that they get out of afghanistan. listen. >> if i don't go out of afghanistan, i am counting down my end of life. >> need to get out of the country, they are looking after us. >> our future will be dark. they will cut our heads, too. my family hides me and tell them i've gone somewhere. then they search our house and i was hide inside the oven in my
yard. all our materials burned by them. >> they burned your house? >> yeah. they burned my house. >> reporter: now, there are about 20,000 afghan interpreters who applied for these special immigrant visas to the united states. the 200 of those and their families members arriving today are in the final stages of that application process. so, all that they have to do here at ft. lee is to go through medical screenings and then they will be relocated to cities across the united states. but there are still thousands and thousands that are waiting in afghanistan. the biden administration still working effortlessly to try and find a plan to relocate them while they go through the final stages of their visa process. >> all right, kylie. big day at ft. lee. thank you so much for that report. simone biles posting a new video overnight showing she's still suffering from what is known as the twisties.

♪ simone biles says she still has the twisties in a now deleted series of instagram posts she shows how scary it can be. the big question is will she compete in the four individual events starting sunday? coy wire live for us in tokyo this morning. those videos may have given us a hint, coy, because she says they're affecting all of the different moves, not just a couple of them as they have affected her before. >> yeah, that's right, brianna. these posts remind us just how dangerous and scary gymnastics can be especially if the mentals aren't there. she said it's petrifying and mind and body aren't in synch. she posted these videos at this
morning's practice session saying, quote, literally cannot tell up from down. it's the craziest feeling ever. not having an inch of control over your body. what's scary is since i have no idea where i am in the air i have no idea how i'm going to land or what i'm going to land on, head, hands, feet, back, unquote. the 24-year-old added when she's had the twisties in the past, it's taken two weeks or more, brianna, for them to go away. now, biles was watching the women's all around gymnastics from the stands on thursday. barely sitting still at times and cheering on her teammate and new individual all around champ suni lee, stepping up huge on the sports biggest stage, extending a run of five golds for the u.s. in this event. lee grew up in st. paul, minnesota, trained in the backyard on a wooden beam her dad built for her. she missed two months in 2020 with a broken bone in her foot. two months with achilles injury. dad was paralyzed from the chest down and lost an aunt and uncle due to covid last year, brianna.
she says she felt like quitting at times but persevered through it all and all came down to the floor routine and she crushed it. suni strong, an emotional win after going through all that she's been through. this is her moment and she says she's embracing every bit of it. >> with covid and my family and everything else, this medal definitely means a lot to me because there was a point in time where i wanted to quit. i didn't think i would ever get here, including injuries and stuff. so there are definitely a lot of emotions, but i'm super proud of myself for sticking with it and believing in myself. >> 18 years old, brianna. favorite book is harry potter. favorite movie "finding nemo" she wanted pizza and got her pepperoni. you deserve it. awesome, awesome stuff. >> oh, he is so does. she's been known for her uneven bars and turns out she's got it all. she's the whole package, coy.
it's amazing to watch. thank you so much for live for us from tokyo. >> you got it. so when suni lee was in tokyo clinching the gold medal, her family and friends were gathered thousands of miles away in minnesota. [ cheers and applause ]. the 18-year-old beat a packed field to become only the sixth american field to reach that peak. joining us now and one of the screamers there, her sister shyann lee. it's so nice to meet you. i have to admit when i found out that your sister won the gold, i screamed. and i never met her. what was it like for you at tha. and we were just in awe. we are so proud of her. we didn't expect gold. that's just something that she's been dreaming about forever. and it was just unreal. >> what did your parents think?
we had your parents on earlier this week to talk about your sister ahead of winning gold in the all arounds. your dad, he is kind of the suni whisperer, right? he must be so incredibly proud. tell us about your mom and dad. >> oh my god, they're both super proud. they've been living the gymnastics life forever, too. and just seeing suni along this entire journey and her living her dreams, they're just super proud. and i know that everything they've done for suni to get here was well worth it. >> you know, coy wire ran through it moments ago. it's been a heck of a few years for the united states, right, and this country and the world. it's been a really challenging year or so for you and your family. and among other things, i heard that with all the violence against the asian-american community in the united states, your father at one point told you guys not to go outside alone. i just wonder if you can talk about all the emotions that
you've been feeling. >> it's a lot. of course with all the stuff going down here in minnesota, especially, there's a lot of protesting of the asian-americans, which i'm totally rooting for. but it's also dangerous as well. and you know, my dad just wants all of us to stay safe, not get too involved in like arguments. just trying to be more in than out because you never know what's out there. >> it's sad that you have to think about that shyann. it's sad that your sister and your siblings have to think about that. it's clear talking to you the range of emotions that you've experienced here just in the last several months. so this is amazing that you are experiencing this huge high as you watch your sister.
i know that she facetimed with you after she won. what did she tell you? >> if i'm being honest, i can't really remember. it was so much adrenaline going around. but i think she was saying how i wish you guys were here and i was just telling her to breathe because i can watch her, she holds in her breath and she can't breathe. so i was like, girl, you did it. now is your time to breathe. now she's seeing how proud i am of her. but it was a really good moment. >> what kind of a sister is she? spill the beans here. >> suni? >> yeah. >> she's an amazing sister. i'm so grateful for her. she's always here for me and i'm always here for her. and we just have a click like no other. >> unbelievable. 12 days apart you are, right? just 12 days apart. >> yeah. a week and a half.
>> right. shyenne lee, congratulations to your entire family. we appreciate you being with us this morning. we're so happy for your happiness. >> thank you, guys. i'm so happy for her. she deserves it so much. >> it's amazing. you know, john, i get goose bumps watching, just watching suni perform, so i can't imagine what it's like to be her family, but i think one of the things i also appreciate about her story is that of course she's amazing and you watch what she achieves, but then you see what it takes and you hear the story of her family and you hear about her dad and what everyone has gone through and you talk to shyenne and so incredibly supportive and you see this village it takes to push someone to that level. >> look, when you watch the reaction of that family and friends have pure unadulterated joy. wonderful to see. countries across europe rolling out vaccination health

♪ countries across europe rolling out so-called health passes for admission to public venues as the delta variant spreads. etople have to prove their fully vaccinated, recently tested negative for the virus or recently recovered from the virus. fred pleitgen joins us from berlin. we're watching this here and wondering could this ever work in the united states. tell us how it's working there. >> reporter: well, it certainly seems to be working here. one of the interesting things, john, we have seen over the past couple months is after a really slow start with the vaccinations, most of these european countries have now caught up with the u.s. as far
as the vaccination rates are concerned. although, the amount of vaccinations is sort of starting to lag here as well because, of course, we have summer holidays and also right now there's less coronavirus going around as well. one of the reasons why politicians are so sure that the public is going to accept these measures is that in the public in many european countries a lot of people are fed up with people who don't want to get vaccinated. and that's why politicians are pushing this through despite some very public and sometimes aggressive backlash. have a look. unrest on the streets of paris. the crowd protesting new vaccine mandates put in place in an effort to stop a surge in coronavirus infections. but despite the mayhem, france's president says he won't budge and that he's had it with people refusing vaccination. >> translator: what is your freedom worth if you say to me i don't want to be vaccinated but if tomorrow you infect your
father, your mother or me, he says? france just passed a law mandating so-called virus passes or green passes for visits to restaurants and for domestic travel. one reason why the government remains steadfast in the face of often violent protests, the vast majority in france endorses this stricter measures experts say. >> these people speak only in their own private name. they don't taking collectively. the fact that protecting one self is also protecting the whole society. >> reporter: as the delta variant of the coronavirus spreads fast, countries across europe are turning to green passes and in some cases vaccination mandates to get people protected. starting in early august, italy will require green passes for all indoor hospitality. the passes provide proof that people have either been vaccinated, have recovered from covid-19 or have a negative pcr test no older than 48 hours.
germany, austria, denmark, portugal and others are using varying forms of green passes for access to dining and other aspects of public life. here in germany, for instance, we have what's called the digital vaccination certificate. it looks like this. and people who have been fully vaccinated or who have recovered from a covid-19 infection, just have a lot less hassle getting into bars and restaurants and even traveling around europe. more and more countries are turning to green passes and while thousands recently protested against vaccination requirements outside the greek parliament in athens, at restaurants nearby, diners were enjoying dinner but only for those who are fully vaccinated. as you can see, john, the infrastructure is very much in place here with those digital vaccination passes. everybody in europe really can get. however, one of the things that the governments here in europe are saying is they really understand that they need to
prepare for the fall when they believe could be another wave of covid going around here and the continent as well. not everything is rosy. one of the things we learned this morning here in germany is that several states have actually given vaccines back to the central government because they simply couldn't find enough people to take them, john. >> i will say those vaccine passes i would feel a lot better in places where i know everyone else is vaccinated. thank you so much for that report, fred. i appreciate it. as coronavirus cases surge, sources tell cnn that president biden feels he struck a brick wall trying to convince unvaccinated americans to get the shot. my next guest was one of the millions of americans who had been hesitant about the vaccine, but she recently changed her mind. she's with us now to talk about this. an assistant professor of mathematics at tallahassee community college in florida. thank you so much for talking to us about this. it's such an important thing for us to understand. so tell us a little bit about why you were hesitant at first
about the vaccine. >> thank you for having me. i was hesitant to get the vaccine due to just like every other -- a lot of americans, conspiracy theories, the fact that it came out so quickly and was it going to have any backlash once you have taken it? so i had some really big concerns about it and some fears about it. and so, it took me a while. i just wanted to wait to see what was going to happen after several persons had taken it. i just wanted to see because once you take the vaccine, you can't take it back. so, that's why i kind of waited. since i was teaching from home, i felt more protected. i could control my environment a little better. and who i was coming in contact with. but once i started thinking about it and praying about it, my family members were getting
vaccinated, my mother and immediate family members, that kind of started to change my perspective on it. >> what about your family and friends who maybe weren't on board with getting it who are telling you don't get it? what happened there? >> they were still telling me not to get it and we were kind of on the same page at first. and then as my mind started to change, we kind of change our minds together. we kind of knew that we were going to get vaccinated. we zwjust have to do it in our n time. i have to do it when i'm comfortable and you have to do it when you're comfortable. we weren't stopping each other from doing it. we knew it was going to be in our own time, yes. >> yeah. we spoke with another woman yesterday who said that she had to pray on it to figure this
out. and i know that that was -- you went to a revival at your church, a tent revival, and that was the turning point for you. you know, what do you say to people, give us your pitch to people about why you think they should be thinking about this maybe in a different way or searching for answers in a different way about this? >> yes. i was -- i'm a part of bethel missionary baptist church. i was singing. when i heard my pastor who was at the forefront pushing everyone to encourage them to get the shot, i thought, you know, i was going to go ahead and get it but you know go ahead and get it now. why am i waiting. i knew i was going to get it because i'm in education. and once i found out that i was going to be in the classroom again, around -- in a tight environment with other persons,
i wanted to have some protection better than no protection. so, right there after i had said my prayer right there at the tent to go ahead and make sure hopefully that it didn't affect me in a negative way since i had some of the pre-existing conditions, i wanted to make sure that the nurses there were very, very attentive, making sure that everything went well and so it made me more comfortable to just go ahead and get it. and i actually felt so much better after i did. a little more relief that i would at least have some protection. although i know i would still be possible carrier of the disease and could still pass it along. i wanted to make sure that at least i'm doing my part for protecting not only myself but those persons that i come in contact with. whether it's my family, friends or strangers on the street. >> i know that feeling of
relief. i thank you so much for taking the time today to talk to us about it. >> thank you. thank you for having me. coming up, we'll take you inside a louisiana hospital where a coronavirus patient says she's furious with herself for not getting vaccinated. plus, who is likely to get subpoenaed first as the house investigation into the january 6th insurrection moves forward? e with university of phoenix, we support you with career coaching, including resume building, interview prep, personal branding and more, for your entire career. so if you commit to earning a degree with us, we commit to standing by you until the day you retire. that's career services for life. find out more about our commitment at phoenix.edu. you're strong. you power through chronic migraine

d'agostino helps hamblin back up. are you okay? -yeah. ♪ so a source tells cnn that in just a matter of hours the house committee investigating the january 6th insurrection is planning to dmeet to discuss strategy going forward. joining us now is elie honig. the big question is will they issue subpoenas and for whom.
>> john, there's a huge legal battle brewing right now on capitol hill. and there will be subpoenas. first of all, the chair of the january 6th select committee, representative benny thompson, told us anybody who had a conversation with the white house and officials in the white house while the invasion of the capitol was going on is directly in the investigative sights of the committee and i have no reluctance whatsoever in issuing subpoenas for information. so, who could be receiving these perhaps unwanted subpoenas? well, if you want to know what happened in the white house on january 6th, the logical place to start is this guy, the former president, donald trump. will congress want the political circus that goes along with subpoenaing donald trump? we shall see. i think you're also going to want to subpoena mark meadows, chief of staff. jared kushner, senior adviser. we know they were in contact with trump throughout january 6th. also, interestingly, a member of the house himself, a powerful member, kevin mccarthy. we know he had a crucial conversation during january 6th when he asked donald trump to call them off and donald trump
lashed out at mccarthy and we learned this week jim jordan also had a conversation with donald trump on january 6th. any or all of these folks could receive subpoenas. i have a gut instinct they won't be super happy about it. >> well, they may be even less than unhappy about it, or more unhappy than just being unhappy. they may not comply. >> exactly. >> what happens then? >> congress really has three options. first of all, they can vote to hold somebody in contempt.t yea a tisk, tisk, slap on the wrist. we have seen william barr, wilbur ross both held in contempt in 2019. going back, attorney general eric holder. nothing further happened. doj theoretically could investigate but really contempt has just been a symbolic thing. historically, congress had its own inherent enforcement power. send out the old sergent of arms throw them in the prison near the capitol. that hasn't happened in over 80 years. the realistic option here, john, is they can go to the courts,
they can file a lawsuit to force these people to testify and then if they don't you could have a real criminal issue. don mcgahn is a case in point of what should not happen. it took over two years of legal battles, jerry nadler took four months to go to court, fought it, dragged out forever. the house needs to do better and move more quickly and our courts need to move more quickly if we get this battle. >> the department of justice in the past hasn't been involved in the contempt sigcitations but t could. merrick garland could get involved. >> it's their choice. the people held in contempt barr and holder is in charge of doj. >> mo brooks, a lot made of the fact that mo brooks said that he was wearing body armor. mo brooks was at the baseball ot up and scalise got injured. says he has worn body armor in public some since then because of threats on his life. but there are those who look at
this and say, a, if he was wearing body armor, that may somehow impact his legal defense in the swalwell case. what gives? >> he could get a subpoena as well. i think one question for him is what led you to wear body armor in this case? how often did you do it? did you have specific information about what was going to happen this day that led you to wear body armor? also importantly, the justice department decided this week they will not be representing mo brooks in the lawsuit, meaning in doj's opinion, he was not acting within his role as a member of congress on that day. >> counselor elie honig, always a pleasure. thank you for being here. so just how contagious the delta variant, more than ebola, common cold and flu, details from an alarming new report next. one atlanta school has quarantined 100 students and it's only the first week of school. t frequent heartburn waking her up.

♪ so from the united kingdom an international outrage. it took place at the unveiling of a statue for fallen police officers, a noble cause and no one is questioning that. what is scandalous, though, is what happened with prime minister boris johnson during the event. i want to play the unedited video in its entirety. now, i should warn you, you might be shocked by this. i should also warn you, apparently it's raining. >> any moment now we'll be celebrating with the flight past of the national police air service, so we'll just wait a moment on them .
okay. there's a lot to digest there, so i want to break it down into parts. first, the prime minister notices it's raining. he also notices he has an umbrella, which he tries to deploy. now i say try because this is a tortured process of self discovery for the prime minister who seems to be familiarizing himself with this advanced technology for the very first time. now, it is here where one could point out that rain is not some unicorn event there, rain is the official national weather of the united kingdom. it rains there pretty much always, yet as the british papers point out, johnson has trouble taking evasive action. this came the day after making headlines in the british papers for other rain issues. the evening standard wrote, quote, the prime minister was mocked for getting drenched even though he was holding an umbrella. that was an actual article.
forget the insurrection, this is a scandal. damp shoulders, a literal watergate. forgive me. back to the play by play. johnson gets the umbrella proudly, so proudly he opens it to home secretary. her response, not on your life. not just no, but talk to the hand no. a combination of pity and disdain as if to say, you're not dragging me into this. one umbrella scandal per cabinet is enough. and then johnson basically says hold my beer. right? the ultimate in umbrella comedy, if the brits were actually known for comedy. now, what most people found -- this is what most people found to be the grand finale, but no. the real outrage comes next. because this is when prince charles, who was there, chuckles
or chortles. i'm not proper decorum he laughs to say commoner. he laughs in a manner of a person who has inherited all his umbrellas, his royal highness, the prince of wales, the duke, his umbrella prowess a genetic gift. now, i do know he has other issues. i've seen every season of the "the crown" but not judging by this an umbrella issue. why not help the other guy out? yes, the prime minister is bad at umbrellas. maybe even incompetition, but at least it is elected incompetence. and that is something to be proud of. i guess. by the way, the forecast for london rain. >> that was so funny, but why are you so anti-british comedy? i mean, we're watching t play out right there like a mr. bean episode. >> i'm not anti-. they're not known for thei
