tv   Fox News at Night With Shannon Bream  FOX News  March 25, 2021 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT

8:00 pm
supreme court. >> there are more asian-americans at these ivy leagues. >> laura: ted lieu, a deranged buffoon. before we go, i want you to know tomorrow night we will be hosting a special "the ingraham angle" town hall, we will have parents, doctors, education experts, and a lot more, all of these people hn now. it will be an eye-opening evening and will some of what you see will shock you. shannon bream in the "fox news @ night" team will take it all from here. shannon? >> shannon: i cannot wait to see that tomorrow night, laura. to thank you. we will be watching you. thank you. >> shannon: okay, thank you. former president trump speaking with laura, highlights from his response to president joe biden's first news conference in just minutes, but we start with this tonight, in the past, comments by promise emma kratz on immigration
8:01 pm
and a senate legislative filibuster. stop a majority backed legislation in its tracks. we moved to the senate and asked today if the 60 vote rush old to proceed on a bill is a legacy of racist jim crow, mr. biden said yes. 15 years ago, senator biden and barack obama both joined a failed filibuster attempt against the supreme court justice samuel alito. here's what mr. biden set up a time about the filibuster. >> it breaks the rule to change the rule. if we go down this path of nuclear option, if we go down this path of nuclear option, we will be left with a much different system from what our founders intended and from how the senate has functioned throughout its history. the senate has always been a place where the structure and rules permit fast-moving
8:02 pm
partisan agendas to be slowed down, where hotheads could cool, and where consensus was given a second chance, if not a third and a fourth. >> shannon: president biden has called that speech one of the most important he ever made in the senate. based on this next clip we are about to play, democrats have also moved very far from where they once were on immigration. listen to former democratic leader harry reid. this is 1993. >> we admit the equivalent of a major city without any assessment, whether these newcomers are likely be contribute and members of our society. only a tiny fraction of those admitted each year enter because they have skills and abilities that will benefit our country. immigration policies must be guided by a rational assessment of their national interests. not by emotion, not by nostalgia. >> shannon: clearly, political parties change with the times, but the democrats are the ones who use the filibuster during
8:03 pm
the trump administration. notably against african-american republican senator tim scott's police reform bill, and they didn't accuse themselves of being racist when they did it. republican state in both cases, immigration and the filibuster, democrats now see a way to cement their control long-term here in washington, d.c., despite what they have now, which is a current razor-thin edge in both the house and senate. hello, and welcome to "fox news @ night." i'm shannon bream in washington. white house correspondent kevin corke is here with the very latest comments from former president trump weighing in a short time ago. good evening, kevin. >> fantastic open to the show. good evening, shannon. former president trump, yes, was listening to mr. biden's remarks today, including when he falsely claimed the number of children apprehended at the border this year is basically on par when it comes to the trump administration. listen. >> the matter is, nothing has changed. as many people came, 28% increase in children at the border, in my administration. 31% in the last year, in 2019,
8:04 pm
before the pandemic, in the trump administration. it happens every single, solitary year. >> that is false, say our fact-checkers. there is a far, and i mean far bigger surge of unaccompanied minor children right now than there was two years ago. just as an example, january to february 2019, 31% surge in children stopped by cbp. from january to february in 2021, has been a 61% surge in those stops. numbers that obviously have not escaped the attention of the former president. >> we have the border, the most secure, they say in 20 years, but really, i think from the beginning, it has never been like this. what you are doing now and what you are seeing now is inhumane. these children and people -- tremendous number of children, by the way, but they are living on top of each other in squalor. this is squalor. that is why they won't allow the press to come in.
8:05 pm
we let the press go in, and we had much smaller numbers, frankly, because people couldn't come up. >> couldn't come up due to the remaining mexico policy instituted by the trump administration. by the way, biden also repeated a misrepresentation floated by his homeland security secretary when he said this about returning illegal border crossers to their country of origin. >> if you take a look at the number of people who are coming, the vast majority, the overwhelming majority of people coming to the border and crossing are being sent back. >> again, that is simply not true. for the month of february, less than half of the nearly 20,000 apprehensions of family units were returned under title 42. again, that is cording to cbp data come about 41% for those of you doing the math at home. again, here is the former president. >> by the time we finish what we were doing, very few people were coming up because they knew they
8:06 pm
weren't going to get through. we stopped to catch and release. what they are doing now is outrageous. >> another biden exaggeration? this one on the filibuster. >> from between 1917 and 1971, the filibuster existed, there were a total of 58 motions to break a filibuster. that whole time. last year alone, there were five times that many. so it's being abused in a gigantic way. >> again, the facts say that is not the case. in 2020, the number of motions filed to end a senate debate, which is a proxy measure for the use of the filibuster, was actually about double, not five times the number from 1917 to 1971, which means i should probably be calling chad pergram right now to double check the math there. by the way, biden was also way off when he tried to criticize the 2017 trump tax cuts, which
8:07 pm
he said had 83% going to the top 1%. however, the 83% figure is actually a projection, shannon, of what might happen under certain circumstances in 2027. it's not a figure about what has happened. again, a lot of caveats there. he may or may not have known that. is his job to know that, which makes what he said completely n. shannon? >> shannon: and kevin, i'm glad you were the one doing the math because that is not my specialty. >> all good. >> shannon: not my strength. thanks for breaking it down. >> you're welcome. >> shannon: embattled new york governor andrew cuomo facing yet another allegation of misconduct. he allegedly arranged for what were at the time very hard to get coronavirus tests for family members, including his brother, cnn anchor chris cuomo, correspondent david miller has the story from new york. good evening, david. >> good evening, shannon. new york governor andrew cuomo tonight finds himself embroiled
8:08 pm
in yet another scandal. according to multiple reports, early on in the pandemic, relatives of cuomo and others close to the governor were able to get special treatment at a state lab to determine if they have the covid virus. >> there he is. with his hat, formal prime time. >> millions watched as governor andrew cuomo invited his brother cnn host chris cuomo to take part in one of his daily covid briefings. chris cuomo talked about his symptoms, but what he did not say that with the help of his brother, he got a covid test when many others could not. >> i'm doing really well, all things considered. this is very tough. >> a report published in elven east times union newspaper citing three sources said cuomo's administration prioritized covid tests were not only has brother chris but at least one of his sisters and his mother, matilda. vivian's they ask him whose own mother died of covid in a long-term care facility, was oud
8:09 pm
by the report. >> shocking. i had a matilda. i had a matilda that i would protect, that i watched over, that i was an advocate for. he protected his matilda and sacrificed mine. >> the alleged special treatment does not end there. according to "the washington post," so-called vips close to the governor got secret testing priority at a state lab. responding to the allegations, a senior cuomo advisor issued a statement, saying in part, "in the early days of this pandemic, when there was a heavy emphasis on contact tracing, we were absolutely going above and beyond to get people tested. among those we tested were members of the general public, including legislators, reporters, state workers, and their families." >> so, you still have -- do you have a fever today? >> i have a fever right this instant, governor. >> and the allegations for preferential treatment regarding covid testing have led to yet more calls for the governor to resign, for him to be impeached.
8:10 pm
his actions may have been a violation of new york state law. shannon? >> shannon: david lee miller, thank you so much, as we are just getting word from the new york attorney general, she calls it troubling, but says her office can't investigate. she does hope that the joint commission on public ethics in new york will look into these reports. we know you will follow it. we will, too. thank you. the long festering homelessness problem is front and center in los angeles tonight, after the city moved to clear an encampment at echo park, where police were met by residents and protesters who said they weren't going to leave. chief breaking news correspondent trace gallagher reporting live from our west coast newsroom in l.a. tonight, good evening, trace. >> shannon, good evening. just over an hour, the homeless at residents of echo park, and there are still a few, have to leave the area or be escorted away by police. the in cabin was supposed to be cleared last night, but a few hundred protesters showed up, io on hand tonight, opposing
8:11 pm
the police suite. last night, and gathering to a few crashes, and at one point, police got into riot gear after they began throwing bottles and other objects. the homeless also joined in the chanting. watch. [chanting "chanting as a human right, fight, fight, fight"] >> we are back to fighting for our right just to exist. that is all we want, just like you, to live our lives. >> overall, i think that is the best way to put it. especially as i have seen it grow and grow and grow, as corona increased. >> the unofficial tally had the encampment at nearly 110ths, but while the protesters were allowed, the number of homeless has also drawn the ire of those who live in and around echo par. people demanding the cleanup the public spaces and furious their village green is rife with
8:12 pm
trash, drugs, and crime. as to where the echo park homeless residents will go now, city leaders have agreed to move those who wish into hotels temporarily. meantime, work crews protected by police are in the process of putting fences around the park encampment so it can be cleaned and restored. listen. >> when we reopen the park after several weeks, sometime in the late spring, it will reopen safely and securely, long-term and definitely where everyone can enjoy the park during park hours. >> although authorities do expect a few dozen homeless people to continue trying to use the park as an encampment, and as the homeless problem becomes more pervasive in california, consider this. in january 2020, the number of homeless in california was above 161,000. that was up 7% from the previous year, and that was prepandemic. experts say the number now
8:13 pm
dramatically higher. the solutions remain very scarce. shannon? >> shannon: trace gallagher out west for us, thank you very much, trace. as protesters gathered in georgia, governor bryan kemp signed into law legislation tightening up state election laws, including that would add restrictions on voting by mail and give the legislature greater control of how elections are run, as a constitution provided for states. the democrats and voting rights groups complained the legislation will disproportionately disenfranchise and suppress voters of color. and tonight, new york attorney general letitia james since she is studying legal means to challenge the georgia law. now to our top story, former president trump's response to president biden tonight on the filibuster, immigration, and more. let's bring a tights panel to debate. kevin walling, former white house strategic communications director mercedes schlapp, and "the hill"
8:14 pm
media political columnist, fox news contributor joe concha. welcome to all of you tonight. >> hey, shannon. >> good evening. >> shannon: a lot of discussion today about the filibuster. it has been an ongoing conversation, but the president asked directly today if it is racist and part of the jim crow law era. he said yes without hesitation. so, i want to read something, blurt out first if you know who said this. about getting rid of the filibuster. "what they don't expect is for one party, republican or democrat, to change the rules in the middle of the game so that they can make all the decisions while the other party is told to sit down and keep quiet." any ideas who it was? >> i had my hand up first. >> president obama. >> shannon: okay, mercedes, we will start with you. i heard you say president obama. that is correct. so, ari fleischer asked today, it is amazing biden could say the filibuster is racist, not a single white house reporter followed up and asked if it was racist when biden and obama filibustered. mercedes? >> i think president obama makes
8:15 pm
a lot of sense when it comes to the filibuster. you do want to come up with solutions that are bipartisan, and when you end the filibuster, that really gives tremendous amount of power to the majority in the senate, and so, i think that you would hope that biden would be listening to former president obama, but what you are seeing more and more are that the democrats are effectively organizing, they are focused on marketing, ending the filibuster across the nation, to say this is the direction we need to get to to pass these far left agenda items that president biden and the democrat party are pushing. so, i think the republicans need to be ready for this fight, because it is coming. it is coming, and it is going to be hard to stop if these republicans don't push back hard, as we have seen with what mitch mcconnell was able to say on the senate floor just recently. >> shannon: so, beckett adams of the "washington examiner" said this. "unsurprisingly, the useless
8:16 pm
questions came mostly from the same people who build themselves during the trump era as no-nonsense seekers of truth, go figure." kevin, what did you make of the questioning today? >> yeah, shannon, i was kind of disappointed with the questioning. the number one issue for americans is covid, and secondly, the economy. zero questions focused on either of those things, especially with the president's speech at the outset saying we are going to put 200 shots -- 200 million shots in the arms of americans by the first hundred days. zero questions about covid, questions about whether he was going to run again, whether kamala harris is going to run again, with him on that ticket, questions about the border which is important, but again, there was no diversity in terms of the kind of questioning, with so much of a focus on both immigration and the filibuster. we should have covered a lot more ground, and it is a disappointment to see a lot of the reporters just focus on a few key issues. >> shannon: one of the items that seemed to inspire the most passion with president biden today was the issue of voting rights. there is this massive bill
8:17 pm
passed by the house, heading to the senate, that would give a lot more federal control over elections. that comes in contrast to what we are seeing at the state level, we just talked about in georgia where they are trying to tighten up security measures and things they think are necessary for voting and keeping it clean there. here's what president biden said today about the state laws that a number of states are passing, they say to tighten things up. here is his take on them. >> sick. deciding, in some states, but you cannot bring water to people standing in line? waiting to vote? deciding that you are going to end voting at 5:00 when working people are just getting off work? deciding that there will be no absentee ballots, under the most rigid circumstances? >> shannon: joe, i know today you thought there were a lot of things he mischaracterized, some folks point to that and say that is not an accurate description. what did you make of what you heard from him today? >> well, just that one quote,
8:18 pm
can anyone here name one state that closes voting on election night at 5:00? no, right, because not exist. >> shannon: none that i know -- he said they are trying to do that, i don't even know of proposals for that, either. >> early voting. >> right, but you know the point, right, no, it's not like, oh, i can't get off work and time to vote, it's 5:00. i think he is playing on the fact that he thinks people aren't paying attention from a fact-checking perspective, but you know, shannon, some of the questions during this, their actual advocacy, activism and action, pbs, okay, your tax dollars at work, she had the second question. it was patently embarrassing to the profession. she made the argument that the surge at the border is only happening because "president biden is a moral and decent man." she didn't bother to actually quote biden back in terms of what he said as a candidate
8:19 pm
where he said literally that folks from central america should surge the border if they feel like they are oppressed, and look, mexico's president said that the president's rhetoric, while he was a candidate, is a reason why we are seeing this surge now. when you talk to migrants in television interviews that they have done, same thing, that yes, president biden, then-candidate biden's words, is what enfolded us to come here. she come again, this reporter, pressed biden to back the filibuster in the name of civil rights and said that republicans were suppressing voter rights. this was bias in broad daylight. it was activism playing out on national television, and that is what we saw. a lot of reporters seemed to be abdicating, blowing up the filibuster, instead of asking questions about covid. very good point, not a lot of questions around that, not a lot of questions around reopening schools. your cdc director says it is safe, even if teachers aren't vaccinated. why are you not putting kids back in school full-time? i am a parent, trust me, i would
8:20 pm
love to see this, instead of bowing to the teachers union. what is your message to parents when your covid-19 bill that has billions of dollars being spent in terms of reopening schools, it's not going to be spent until 2022 when the pandemic is over, what do you say to parents that want to reopen now, sir, specific questions and follow-ups were not asked. instead, they allowed, ironically, the president to filibuster answers when he answered for minutes at a time with their interruptions, which is a stark contrast from what we saw during the trump campaign -- i'm sorry, during the trump administration. >> joe should have been in the room -- >> that is a filibuster right there. >> shannon: all three of you would have been in there with questions of your own. >> amen. >> shannon: joe, mercedes, and kevin, thank you all very much. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: president biden says the current crisis at the border is seasonal and it is the trump administration's false. we are going to check the scams that fact-checkers say is

8:26 pm
>> thank you for having me. >> shannon: i want to play something from the president today talking about children being left to starve at the border by the trump administration. here is what he said. >> the idea that i'm going to say, which i would never do, if an online company child ends up at the border, we are just when to let them starve to death and stay on the other side. no previous administration did that, either, except trump. i'm not going to do it. >> shannon: i would imagine you have a response to that. quite an accusation. >> shannon, that statement is a complete fallacy. that never happened. at hhs, the children in our care always received excellent treatment. it was one of our highest priorities, and we were very, very transparent about that. we allowed in hundreds of congressional visits, hundreds of media opportunities, and we
8:27 pm
would never dream of informing the press that they could not see the facilities that hired immigrant children. >> shannon: do you find, listen, it happens to president and both parties, that there is a lot they can talk about on the campaign trail but once they get in there and deal with the realities of what is going on, it can often be a very different picture for them. it leads them with a situation like this where we have these facilities way overcapacity. that is not being denied. we know those numbers are true, yet what we are being told is that it is a completely different situation, in the way these children are being processed and handled and treated, versus how the trump administration was processing and handling and treating these children. what is the same, what is different, as far as you can tell? as you said, we are still waiting for access. i will give reporters credit today who push on that. >> well, the reality is that once children are in the care of the office of refugee resettlement under hhs, they are going to receive very good care.
8:28 pm
now this surge is different. it is not a process of normal migration. this is a direct policy -- direct result of the failed policy of this administration. when the president took title 42 and exempted children, it's important to understand, title 42 was put in place at the height of the coven pandemic to protect americans from covid coming in through illegal immigration. the president exempted children from this policy, and he did so in an illegal way, and that is being challenged in court, led by former hhs chief of staff brian harrison, my colleague. and i'm glad that he is doing that because that one policy change signaled to our friends in mexico and throughout the southern hemisphere that if they can get their children here, they can stay here. that is the directories and we have 17,000 children in our custody, shannon, and what the american people need to understand is once they are here, they are going to get
8:29 pm
excellent care, and they should. we agree in a bipartisan fashion at all children should be treated humanely and be given great care, and we do that because it is consistent with our character as americans. but we also have to understand that there is a cost that is associated with this. every child that crosses the border illegally is now costing us, in temporary facilities, between $900.1300 a day. they are in our care and average of 40 days. that is $40,000 for each unaccompanied minor. we have 17,000 of them now. and this would be juxtaposed with an american family getting a $1400 check the covid relief package, and it shows you just how radical this agenda is. >> shannon: well, yeah, the numbers are staggering, of children, of dollars, and for folks who missed it today, there was a reporter who has just been down there and talked about a

little boy sent from honduras alone, nine years old, and his mother said it was because she knew that was the only way he could get in is if she chant him on that trip by himself. it is heartbreaking. matt, thank you for weighing in. good to see you. >> thank you. >> shannon: a series of dangerous destructive tornadoes ripping through alabama tonight. this outbreak of severe storms has turned deadly, killing at least five people. the twisters also causing moderate to severe damage to hundreds of homes and leaving thousands without power there. the father of slain boulder police officer eric talley says he wants the left to stop politicizing his son's death. will they listen? that is next. this is los angeles right now outside echo park. trace just told us about this, the homeless encampment where there is a standoff between police and protesters. here is how it looks tonight. e of doing what's right, not what's easy. so when a hailstorm hit, usaa reached out before he could even inspect the damage.

intervening in a bizarre incident involving a gun belonging to president biden son hunter. now all of this starts back in 2018 when hunter's gun being tossed in a trash can behind a grocery store by his girlfriend at the time, hallie biden, who was also his brother's widow. when she went back for the gun, it was missing. the police got involved and then the secret service reportedly try to track down paperwork for the sale of the gun come up the gun store owner refused to hand it over. the gun was eventually returned by an older man who found it rummaging through a trash can where he would collect recyclables. no charges or arrests were ever made, the white house not commenting. according to information obtained by "politico," hunter may have lied about his drug use on a firearms transaction record he used to purchase a gun in 2018. michigan attorney general dana nessel asking congress for federal funding to help fight what she calls a growing threat of domestic terrorism. the request comes amid talks on capitol hill about how to handle the issue and the threats following the deadly january 6th

8:37 pm
good to have you. >> good to be here. >> shannon: i want to play something vice president harris said -- because so many people come forward and are saying, gun rights advocates, none of the laws that have been passed, nothing that is being proposed would have stopped this particular shooter. here is what the vice president says about that idea. >> every time there is a slaughter, a mass shooting, someone who does not want to be accountable for what we need to do says, well, that wouldn't have prevented this thing. it is time for congress to act, and stop with the false choices. this is not about getting rid of the second amendment. >> shannon: salena, your reaction to the vice president's comments? >> well, you know, she is having this sort of political reaction to the horrible events that happened in boulder. this is exactly what the police
8:38 pm
officer's family is saying, please don't do that. this is what happens anytime there is a tragic event with a gun shooting. the gun becomes the symbol of something that needs to be regulated. or changed, and that has to be done through congress, or through an executive order. and americans attitudes towards guns, second amendment rights, have changed very drastically in the past year. americans have bought more guns. there are new -- more new gun owners, we broke records three times so far in the past 12 months. first six months of 2020, more new gun owners than ever. that was followed by the next six months of more new gun owners ever. and followed by february and january, of once again hitting record numbers. and these are a large amount of new gun owners that are female or minority. and so people are viewing their
8:39 pm
second amendment rights through a very different prism, and you compound that with a year of being under a lot of government rules and a lot of liberties being taken away, and all of a sudden, people look at the second amendment rights with clear eyes. they have more clarity as to how important it is to protect those rights. >> shannon: and i know you have talked to folks over the last year who felt like with the d funds the police measures and cutting police forces, that people felt like they needed to have their own ability to defend themselves, but there are those who were very critical of this. senator mark kelly, obviously we all remember his wife, who was shot, tragically, and a mass shooting at cost many lives. she has survived and is in recovery, but he says is a gun owner, someone who really supports the second amendment and cares about this issue, there are some common sense things we could do. most americans think common sense background checks for most

gun sales makes a lot of sense. is there something that is now being proposed? we know two more bills on the hill had passed, that if common ground and people can agree on. because no one wants to see someone troubled like this, or the guy in atlanta, have easy access to guns. nobody wants that. quickly. >> completely understand. and sandra kelly obviously from a very emotional point of view. as in any family member when they are searching for ways. so i do think there could be common sense measures, but we are at such an all-time low in terms of how we view government and our trust in government that i'm not quite sure that this is the time that something could pass. it's going to pass in the house. the democrats have a slim majority, but the senate, i don't think it's going to get

athletic victories, in fact, it is steeped in bigotry and exclusionary fundamentalism. these folks say the school should not be part of the tournament because it does not line up with ncaa values. >> [laughs] well, look, this is march madness that we are witnessing with all of this, and you know, when you think about it, for this so-called inclusion editor of "usa today," to call for the exclusion of a basketball team or a school because of their religious beliefs, i mean, that is the height of hypocrisy. and it proves the adage that many times, those who cry loudest tolerance are the most intolerant people when it comes to ideas they disagree with. and look, shannon, people may not agree with oru's belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, but that is hardly an extreme or fanatical belief. for 3,000 years, that has been the teaching of judaism, for 2,000 years the teaching of christianity, and if you allow this kind of cancel culture to

exist, where do you stop it? what about catholic universities, like notre dame or gonzaga? that are part of the catholic church that opposes abortion, or women's reproductive rights, as it's called. should they be excluded, as well? i think it's time for this irrational intolerance of people of faith by the left, especially people of the conservative christian faith. it's time for that to end, and it needs to end now. >> shannon: well, there is a piece in rebuttal in the "usa today," talking about, salvation army, this baker in colorado, jack phillips, who will be on with us tomorrow, we have to decide if we want to run everett out to go with a biblically-based ideas. maybe let the really just college students play basketball. do you think there is base for people to disagree about these are hot button issues, that they don't have to endorse each other's view of the issue, can we find that space?
8:48 pm
>> well, i hope we can. but again, it is not right to try to force beliefs on people. are you is not trying to force their beliefs on anyone. the fact is, though students are there because they volunteered to be there. and i think there is a lot of confusion, shannon, because people say, well, the supreme court has legalized gay marriage, it's legalized abortion. the supreme court has the authority to decide what is constitutional, but it has absolutely no moral authority to decide what is right or wrong, and neither does the ncaa, neither does "usa today." that is something for the purview of faith. >> shannon: okay, we're just about out of time. i want to say thank you to you and your team at first baptist dallas, huge contribution to my new book coming out next week, "the women of the bible speak," both can check it out at i tell folks all the time, you answer theological questions, you help me with thorny issues,s

8:54 pm
good evening, doctor. >> shannon, unaccompanied children entering the united states across our southern border is more than just a political crisis, it's also a humanitarian one. a high-level source at trump's hhs told me today that shelter beds were expanded back in 2019, from 10,000 to 16,000, with a 72 hour digital interface instituted between custom and border protection and the hhs facilities. but the problem of overcrowding and covid risk remains. according to hhs, since march 24th, 2020, close to 40,000 covid-19 tests were conducted for unaccompanied children entering facilities, with close to 3,000 positives. currently, there are over 300 unaccompanied children's in medical isolation due to covid, out of a total number of 11,500 kids in hhs shelters, according to axios. after crossing the border, unaccompanied minors are first
8:55 pm
placed in border patrol station for processing. custom and border protection does not test migrants while in their custody for covid, relying instead on local public health agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and hhs. minors are only legally supposed to be held for a maximum of 72 hours in the border stations, but due to back logs in hhs system of shelters, thousands have been recently held much longer than that. many border facilities are far beyond their pandemic capacity, and photos first reported by axios reveal crowded, makeshift conditions in at least one temporary overflow shelter, and probably much more. a set up for rapid covert spread. >> what we are doing is we are providing for the space, again, to be able to get these kids out of the border patrol facilities. >> a key statement by the president today is that he has not yet ready to allow journalists, medical or otherwise, into the overcrowded shelters. now this lack of transparency by
