tv   Way Too Early With Kasie Hunt  MSNBC  April 27, 2021 2:00am-3:00am PDT

2:00 am
couldn't see the camera the whole time. but that's fine. it's going to do it for us tonight. keep an eye out tomorrow for the timing on president biden's announcement on covid guidance. we're expecting new cdc guidance on masks. but due to the pandemic, there is now a nationwide chicken wing short and joe biden's rating just dropped 3%. >> the wing shortage is not part of the agenda but we'll soon get ideas of what is. new census data is in, with a shifting u.s. population comes a shifting map. what does it mean for the 2022 midterms? >> and the split widens between
2:01 am
republican leaders. the question is, what's going to come of this? it is way too early for this. good morning and welcome to "way too early" i'm kasie hunt. the family of the north carolina man shot and killed by police last week were finally able to see some of the footage from the incident. family were only allowed to watch 20 seconds of video. even from that, it was clear brown posed no threat and both of his hands were on the hands of the steering wheel of the car. nbc news has not seen the video.
2:02 am
the county attorney sought redactions. >> it is like we are death all odds in this world. my dad got executed just by trying to save his own life. the officers were in no harm of him at all. it is just messed up how this happened. >> speaking with brown's neighbor in elizabeth city, north carolina where she witnessed the whole or deal. >> he pulled up in that driveway. or he lost control. he went in that driveway. >> she is related to the victim through marriage. they shot up the back window of his car. he lost control and he ended up across the street. he hit a tree. they crowded around his car.
2:03 am
they shot -- were shooting the front window of his car. >> from where you were standing, did it appear that his car speeding away could be perceived as a threat to the officers were they were standing? >> no. they were standing behind him. >> hours before family was allowed to watch the video, the mayor of elizabeth city declared a state of emergency and warned against focusing solely on the footage. >> this tragic incident was quick and over in less than 30 seconds and body cameras are shaky and sometimes hard to decipher. they only tell part of the story. >> brown was killed as deputies sought to serve a warrant for his arrest on felony drug charges. seven deputies have been put on administrative leave. the attorneys for brown's family are set to announce the results
2:04 am
of an independent autopsy today. as this has gone on, the justice department has launched an investigation into the louisville police practices. it comes a year after the police shot breonna taylor. no criminal charges were brought as a result of her death. >> the justice department is opening a civil investigation into the louisville, jefferson county metro government and the louisville metro police department to determine whether lmpd engages in a pattern or practice of violations of the constitution or federal law. the investigation will assess whether lmpd engages in a pattern or practice of using unreasonable force. it will determine whether lmpd
2:05 am
engages in unconstitutional stops, searches or seizures. >> louisville's mayor says the city will cooperate with the investigation. so president biden delivers his first address to a joint session of congress tomorrow and the white house says he is, quote, deeply involved in its development. the press secretary says the president will layout specific details of his american families plan that will address child care, elder care, education. we are told the president will not wear a mask during his speech but vice president harris and pelosi will be wearing masks. the latest monmoth
2:06 am
university poll finds widespread support. 68% support of infrastructure and jobs. the president's spending plan, 64% support health care, child care and college tuition assistance. when asked which plan is more important, the majority polls said both infrastructure and health care are equally important. 21% said health care and 19% said infrastructure. when it comes to paying for it, 64% support raising taxes on corporations and 65% support raising taxes on those who earn more per year. >> with us now, msnbc contributor. eugene, thank you for being up
2:07 am
early with us. i want to start with the police reform and investigation that doj is launching into the louisville police department. this is a pretty sweeping adjustment compared to the last administration is looking into these. as biden is set to address the nation. he does want to talk about domestic policy. frankly, we are still talking here about people who have been killed at the hands of police. >> and we are not going to stop. that is something you continue to see happening. you have advocates and activists with more power. you have a white house and administration that have promised to do something. that's what we are seeing with these pattern and practice. this administration came in and said we are going to fix police reform in congress.
2:08 am
that has yet to happen. it is also clear they are going to use the tool of these investigation. i think they are going to ramp up what we saw in the obama administration. i don't know if we watched the press conference with the police chief and mayor there. what is interesting is that they kept saying the same thing, we welcome this type of investigation. we want them to come here and look at what we are doing. the chief there says clarity and uniformity is what she wants, to create standards that if it happens in louisville and minneapolis, we all will understand how it should have been handled. >> and to be mindful that the amount of attention the police departments and cities get, they are not used to that. what we are starting to see is
2:09 am
vocal officials realizing that, hey, we can't handle everything that comes with one of these killings, so come in and look at what we are doing and fix it. i think that part of it is really fascinating there. >> it is a good point. let's turn to the speech, you've written about how the various factions of the democratic party have been vieing to get a mention in the president's speech. getting a sentence in the speech like this has been a huge win for people fighting for policy proposals. how do you think this will all play out especially on the question of health care? >> it is one of the funniest things to talk about. everyone trying to get that one sentence that is in almost every political show and drama on television. we haven't talked about health care in a while, actually when
2:10 am
i'm talking health care, i'm talking outside the pandemic. you have these things that existed before the primary and for all that want to see more investment. they want to look for public option. i don't know if we'll see all of that. the factions and the push and pull is something that the white house has been able to keep them happy. you guys have done stories that you are surprised that the quote/unquote moderate president is the guys that been able to keep them really happy. we'll see if he's able to do that with health care in this speech he's going to be giving.

2:32 am
what led to that attack. >> joining us now from punch bowl news. jake, you've been in orlando covering this. at the risk of repeating chris wallace's question to kevin mccarthy. whenever any of these people that were in that building on that day down played the significance of what happened on january 6, i sort of sit there in disbelief. are you going to defend your own house or not? because mccarthy seems to think that the issue or what occurred that day isn't something, as put it is unique in our history or deserves its own investigation? >> good morning. excuse the background. i'm in a hotel room in orlando. it was difficult to down play it
2:33 am
because they were in a secure room with armed officers and we were not. >> a lot of them were on the floor and had to be ushered out. >> getting to that room was no picnic. there is a woman who died in the process of that. >> no. that's true. it was a seering incident for everybody. but cheney is taking a completely different tact than mccarthy. in addition to all of this, cheney was asked if the department of justice should prosecute donald trump for his role on january 6. she saids that up to the department of justice. so leaving open the idea that trump should be prosecuted and all the things agreeing on, it

2:47 am
people are losing loved ones, brothers, sisters, parents and we realized we were in a full-blown crisis when we started seeing the numbers come through, specifically a million cases in india in three days. we have to figure out how to get these materials over this is very personal where i have the largest concentration of indian-americans. i've been communicating with embassy officials and doing everything we can including joining in in prayer. >> so congresswoman, how underscore to americans that us, sending vaccines is morning them
2:48 am
is an important thing to do. it seems that we have enough here in the u.s. should we be trying to explain more aggressively to people that, hey, it is going to benefit you if we help others? do you think that is a message we are are sending strongly enough? >> sure. we all remember at the start of this very new administration where we are marking almost 100 days in office where president biden moved quickly to make sure it had access to vaccines to vaccinate every single american. here in michigan, we are doing very well. we have almost 50% of the entire state 16 and up with that first dose. we are continuing to get people in, making those appointments accessible. they just want to be able to go into the pharmacy and get the
2:49 am
shot. we have ford field vaccinating hundreds of thousands. this is a moment, one, of u.s. leadership particularly with an allied nation, india, to make sure we are supporting a country that is experiencing a crisis. this is about supply chain recovery and on. i think we can do both. this is obviously the moment for that. and any time there is a spike like this in the world, it is a threat to us all. we've been encouraging them to get the doses, the raw materials, oxygen, masks, ventilators over to india to prevent this crisis. >> you mentioned the vaccination rates in michigan. you have had a bit of a spike against younger michiganders.
2:50 am
what can you do? >> michigan is a warning sign to other places about what happens when you flout social distancing and other health guidelines, particularly mask wearing. when you get a little too comfortable, the reality of what happens when the variant comes in, which is exactly what happened here in our state. and we have seen a very unfortunate spread among young people. and tragically, that's who's in our hospitals here in michigan right now. now, we're on a 31% decline in new covid cases from last week. that's good news. but our numbers are still too high and we're still communicating and i am, as an elected official, that we have got to wear our masks, social distance, and make sure that we stop the spread of this virus. and with that also comes the
2:51 am
need for the vaccinations, as well. but it's certainly been a whirlwind here in michigan, as it pertains to this recent outbreak in covid cases. you know, we still had 3,000 day over day who are getting it. >> all right. congressman haley stevens, thank you so much for being up early with us. we really appreciate you being here. earlier on in the show, we asked all of you, why are you awake? darla writes, i am enjoying day two of vacation, but can't miss "way too early." that looks beautiful. and i really appreciate you spending part of your vacation with us. ben is a big rig driver who says, i'm listening to msnbc on sirius xm looking to find a parking place at a truck stop or rest area. they tend to fill up quickly, so hopefully this shortage will be addressed in the new infrastructure bill. stay safe out there, bill. and another viewer says, i get up way too early to watch the lobster votes leave for the day.

having lost her 2020 campaign for president. she said it's the first time that she's ever really got lost to losing anything. but she also looks ahead to president biden's administration. and she says, even though she lost and even though joe biden as a candidate didn't look like a progressive firebrand, he won of the most aggressive and progressive campaigns that for the economy, for racial justice, and a lot of other progressive ideals. so she calls it a pivotal moment in history. she says that, you know, he won with 7 million votes, more than any other president in history and also did that while running against an incumbent and kind of applauds that moment. and she says that even though she lost her campaign, she's still smiling and she's shelving some of her key campaign ideals and frameworks for a future -- a potential future campaigns, but also to help other presidents. >> so, alayna, one other thing

that i know you've been reporting on and looking at is the census maps and we could very easily nerd out on this. but there are some interesting trends. this could be a threat, the way the population is changing and as we head into a redistricting season into the very, very, very narrow democratic majority in the house. it was already going to be hard for them to hang on to it. it may have just gotten a little bit harder. why? >> 100%. and it's fascinating, because, you know, this only happens every ten years, it's a massive deal. and we saw changes in key states across the country. and you're right, the democratic majority is something that could really be affected by this. and i spoke with dave wasserman, who works for the cook political report. he has some of the best insights on this data and he made a good point that, yes, reapportionment is a huge deal. and what we saw from this data that came out yesterday afternoon, will kind of lead the way for a lot of these states to

redistrict. but the redistricting fight that we're going to come in the coming months after september after more data from the census bureau comes in will be the key thing here. and how states redraw these lines and republicans really have the upper hand, they have the power to control the redistricting. and the democratic majority right now is very slim. they have six more seats than republicans in the house and so any changes really could make a huge difference here. i also think noting the timing, september 30th is when that new data comes out. and then we'll start to see some of the more redrawing of these maps. that's only a little over a year from the 2022 midterm elections. and so a very short timeline. i spoke with some of my sources on capitol hill and they said they're worried that giving this timeline, it could potentially create lawsuits that would delay some primaries, and especially primaries in key races. so it's something that i know a
2:59 am
lot of people will be looking for as we head into the 2022 cycle more earnestly. >> axios' alayna treene, thank you very much for being here with us. i really appreciate it. and i have to say, as we wrap up this morning, i'm thinking about what liz cheney and kevin mccarthy were talking about and their split on what exactly should be investigated in this january 6th commission. and kevin mccarthy essentially is saying, we want to add additional things to this investigation. we want to look at other protests, other political violence. and my question is, if you're not willing to defend your own house, yourself, what are you willing to defend? thank you all for getting up way too early with us on this tuesday morning. don't go anywhere.
