forward is to do it to gather. that is our approach from the beginning throughout the country. >> isn't that what the defend the police movement wants? fewer officers? is and this play into their hands? >> stakeholders pushing that, stakeholders out there want to work with us. we have seen this in washington state where we worked with community partners on a balanced approach, it is all over the country. if we are not going to go that route it will hurt us more and divide us instead of unite us. we are for police reform. we see evolutions of policing spread throughout history. we have to do with the right way working together with everybody coming by. jillian: how with the

>> the cdc pulled an expert often advisory committee after he disagreed with the path of the johnson & johnson vaccine which the agency and uplifting four days later. doctor, thank you for being here. why did you decide to speak publicly about this? >> we are in the middle a pandemic and these things are incredibly important to save life and older americans mortality from covid so it is important to have as many vaccines as possible, for former
a bowl less affluent people for two doses. it is especially important for them. >> have you ever spoken publicly when it comes to your opinions? >> yes but not on a particular issue. ashley: do you think the pauses warranted? >> only for those under 50. all the cases were 48 years old and this is more common among younger people but for older people there was no indication of problems and evidence that it was not a problem. jillian: you got this email from doctor amanda cohen, it has been brought to cdc, recent public statements regarding policy opinions that appear to be predetermined prior to complete
review of data. we expect members to be objective and avoid appearance of bias. cdc is in the your membership effective today. did you anticipate this happening? >> know, i am an expert on seeing information as quickly as possible to determine if it is a problem or not. and there was not a problem. ashley: what was your thought? >> out of philadelphia, 4000 pfizer doses were set to expire yesterday. as of yesterday there were 900 doses at risk of having to be
thrown away because some people don't want to get the vaccine and other people have to be talked into getting the vaccine. none had to be wasted but when we have a situation where we are up against doses that have to be thrown away and then you have a positive you see as partially unwarranted for certain age groups what message does that send to america? >> if you do a pause unwarranted it reduces trust and confidence it is very important but i worked for many decades to improve confidence and this reduces the confidence not only for vaccines but vaccines in general. we have to quickly determine the problem. when there's not a problem, should not scare people when there's no reason to scare people.
jillian: you have full trust in the vaccines. is that your opinion? >> we always have to monitor the safety of vaccines. jillian: i'm in the covid 19 vaccines that are out there right now. >> older people should have confidence in the j and j vaccine but if you're below 50 especially if you are a woman you should take the pfizer or moderna. jillian: your opinion on whether or not you think children should be masked outdoors especially during activities this summer. this has been a hot button conversation particularly with doctor fauci. >> know they should not. that messaging is reducing trust in public health. there is little transmission outdoors. no reason for children to wear masks. jillian: thank you for joining us, keep us updated if anything

>> reporter: record number of executive orders in his first 100 days some signed by president biden within minutes of taking the oath, many direct reversals of donald trump's policies and nowhere was that more apparent than immigration, biden and doing trump's expansion of immigration enforcement, stopping construction of the border wall, ending the remain in mexico policy and reversing the travel ban, the country facing a crisis at the southern border. another was the cancellation of the keystone pipeline. >> hard to make plans when you have an administration that is trying to crush your future. >> reporter: 11,000 jobs gone with the stroke of a pen and rejoining the paris climate agreement, part of his climate change agenda. another early target, guns. >> no amendment to the constitution is absolute. from the begin you couldn't own any weapon you wanted to own. from the beginning the second amendment existed certain people weren't allowed to have weapons. >> reporter: the president's
actions trying to stop ghost guns and exploring red flag laws to prevent someone from buying a gun. perhaps the biggest impact creating a commission to look at changing the makeup of the supreme court. to questioning lifetime appointments. what to know about the highest court in the land could be radically transformed, depending on what the commission finds and how far president biden goes without republican support. we will have some deep state. let's bring in opinion editor for the foundation of economic education and democrat analyst, i want to start with you. president biden has mentioned unity a lot. .2 examples where actions matched his words. >> let's first establish it is normal for presidents to enter executive orders when they enter office.
trump had 220 executive orders and when biden entered office he had to reverse those laws that were codified by the trump administration which supported divisiveness such as the muslim band and separation of families at the border. the unfortunate part is republicans are using unity as a tool when they don't get their way but that is not the definition of unity. unity is bringing together everyone as a whole. when there is a subset of the population that feels unwelcome these executive actions are necessary to make sure you bring the country together and do that. todd: what is your response? >> i completely disagree. the first 100 days of the biden administration belie the promise
of unity, compromise, when pushing executive orders. $6 trillion in proposed spending? it is $3,000 per us household. that would make obama or fdr, overstep the mandates. he has done it on party lines like the covid bill that doesn't work with republicans that totally issued the bipartisan approach for partyline pass. that is not unifying or moderate. todd: let's take a listen. >> i would like to meet those who have ideas that are different. i welcome those ideas but the rest of the world is not waiting for us. doing nothing is not an option. >> reporter: no matter which side of the aisle your and 42
executive orders, 220 executive orders, for the first 100 days biden definitely 32-33. why is this executive order more crucial in this administration than the previous administrations. >> it is what i said. when biden came into office, it is divisive on its face. he ended the presidency when there is a pandemic going on. we could do so quickly. in the face of the pandemic. todd: how vital was that to giving president biden is supposed mandate to do executive orders they have done so far?
>> people elected joe biden to handle the coronavirus but taken the covid response as an excuse to ram through a partisan agenda. even political fact found biden's covid bill, only 10% of spending is directed to mitigating covid 19. it was a partisan wish list tram through emergency relief and that is emblematic of his approach to the crisis. he used it as an opportunity and that is not unifying but political and politicians at their worst. todd: not a lot of agreement between the two, we will have you back to talk about that. thank you very much.
>> missing california mother turns 40 tomorrow. her birthday approaching with no sign of the missing mother of 3, disappeared without a trace four months ago. she made an appointment with the attorney the day before she disappeared. divorcing her husband. police do not consider have a suspect despite is not cooperating with the investigation. stay tuned to join us with the latest developments. reality tv star josh tucker is behind bars, he was arrested yesterday, charges are unclear. in 2019 the dealership was rated by homeland security in connection with ongoing federal investigation. his arrest is connected. his family has not commented. five suspects arrested and charged in connection to the dog napping in lady gaga's two dogs, charges include attempted murder
