"On this valuation. And so the other thing was is that he always seemed kind of crazy with the things that he was talking about. How he was going to run in Israel for office. And how he was going to turn this lifestyle and to work. They seem to live on a different planet. It was always like, what is he talking about when you listen to some of this stuff? And obviously some people believed it. But then it just felt like, okay, the market at some point said the emperor was wearing no clothes. And that's just kind of seems how it all fell apart around that. The other thing is so interesting that he's not down at the New York Stock Exchange yesterday. They don't want him there. I'm sure he wasn't invited to come up on the belt. This is like Travis kalanick, when Uber came out. And by the way, this guy makes Travis kalanick look pretty good. In retrospect. That's actually very interesting question. Travis, I wonder how history books will look at Travis because we all use ubers now. And depending on what happens to we work, right? Right. You'll look back and maybe. I don't know. It's just there's so much there. It's so interesting. Drama. It is. Next on squawk pod, the latest in the fight against COVID. Vaccines for kids vaccine boosters and the U.S. Surgeon General. Doctor Vivek Murthy. My general recommendation is for people to get the booster of their eligible, and here's why, because the point of the boosters is to extend and enhance the already good protection that people have been getting from the vaccine.

This morning, the CDC approved booster shots from Moderna and Johnson & Johnson's COVID vaccines. The agency recommended the Moderna booster for elderly people and at risk adults 6 months after they got their second shot, and the CDC endorsed J&J boosters for everyone 18 and older who received the initial shot at least two months ago. Those boosters could all be available as soon as today. Now, the big question we've all been asking, can we mix and match vaccines? The panel didn't specify which vaccine should be used as a booster and instead suggested doctors decide whether to mix and match the company's vaccines on a case by case basis. Also this morning, big news from Pfizer, the company submitted FDA briefing documents detailing results of its clinical trial for kids, as it turns out, Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine was more than 90% effective in kids age 5 to 11. Becky and Andrew spoke to the U.S. Surgeon General, doctor Vivek Murthy this morning. Here's Becky. Doctor, thank you for being here. Of course, it's good to be with you today. So there's been a lot of confusion around the booster shots. At this point, anybody anybody who's had a J&J vaccine is eligible for a booster shot. People over the age of 65 are eligible for it. And then there are a lot of other qualifications of people who are at heightened risk for that as well. I think the question is, is this they are eligible for this and can get it? Or are you saying they should? Well, that's a great question. So let's just review what the FDA and CDC are recommending. They're saying number one, if you are a Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipient. And if you're someone who got the vaccine two months ago or more, that you are now eligible for a booster shot. Second, they're saying if you got the Moderna Pfizer vaccine and you're more than 6 months out, you are eligible as well if you fall into one of three high risk categories, you over 65, you've got other medical conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure that puts you at higher risk or you live and work in a place where your risk of exposure COVID is greater. You know, in terms of whether you should get that or whether it's just a possibility or my general recommendation is for people to get the booster of their eligible. And here's why, because the point of the boosters is to extend and enhance the already good protection that people have been getting from the vaccine. We know that some vaccines many vaccines that we've looked at over time. Some of them do decrease in their efficacy over over time. It doesn't mean the vaccines don't work well. It just means sometimes they need a boost to keep the protection going. We have heard this week that in the UK, the numbers have increased pretty drastically to the point where it is concerned doctors and hospitals in that country. And they are now asking for some restrictions to be put back in, whether that be wearing face masks or other issues. Do you know why the case count is up there? Is it because the vaccines efficacy is worn off? Is it because there haven't been enough vaccinated people or something else? Well, there could be several factors accounting for the UK's rise in cases. But one of them that I'll point to is the fact that it's getting colder and when the weather gets colder, we know that people go indoors and indoor settings are a better setups for the spread of COVID-19 than outdoor settings. We also know that the virus in general is better transmitted in cold weather, which is why you see so many respiratory viruses spread during the winter months. Look, we had a big search last winter here in the United States. What's different now for us in the U.S. is we have 190 million people who are fully vaccinated. So it means there are about 65 million people who are eligible who are not fully vaccinated. And that's where we've got a lot of work to do because we want as many people as possible to protection that will help keep our numbers down as winter approaches. One group that has not been allowed to be vaccinated at this point are children, anybody under the age of 12, we're anticipating that that approval will come in the next couple of weeks, how confident are you in that approval? And then what concerns do you have on the news? We just heard from Pfizer saying that 90.9 .7% efficacy is there in these clinical trials for kids aged 5 to 11, but they also admit that the trial is not big enough to really determine if there's a detective if there's any potential risks of myocarditis. Well, look, this is a very important landmark that we are approaching, which is a possibility having a vaccine for kids under 12. I say that not just as Surgeon General and as a doctor, but as a dad of two kids who are under 12 who has been eagerly waiting this moment. The FDA is reviewing the data right now. And within the next few weeks, I anticipate we will hear a decision from them. Their advisory committee is meeting later this month, the CDC advisory committee's meeting in the first week of November and soon after that we should have recommendations from them on what to do. Here's also what's important to know about kids, though. The FDA is going to look very carefully at two parameters. One is this vaccine effective in our kids under 12. And number two is it safe. You know, as a parent, I want to know the answer to those two questions before I make a decision on getting my child vaccinated. I think millions of parents do as well. So they will not put forward a recommendation to get vaccinated if they don't feel confident about the safety. Now, finally, to your point about rare side effects, there are a reason that we continue to follow people after getting a vaccine, even after the trials and the authorization is given, because if they're rare side effects, really rare side effects, you may not see them. You know, until millions and millions of people have been vaccinated. Again, the point here is that there's going to be likely strong benefit to the getting vaccinated if the FDA chooses to authorize it because we know there's a lot of COVID around. We know COVID is not benign in children, hundreds of children have died from it. Thousands have been hospitalized. And many have struggled now with long COVID, which are the prolonged symptoms of COVID.

"Over 90% effective for children, what's next with the U.S. Surgeon General, doctor Vivek Murthy? The FDA is going to look very carefully at two parameters. One is this vaccine effective in our kids under 12. Number two is it safe. Now as a parent, I want to know the answer to those two questions. And ready set suck it in. Or don't. We're talking to the founder of spanx, Sara blakely. This brand has so much global awareness and it'll be fun to be able to actually really start to deliver and provide products all around the world. Those stories plus snap has snapped its stock at least, and WeWork's first day of trading. It's Friday, October 22nd, 2021. Squawk pod begins right now. Stand Becky by in three, two, one, kill please. Good morning, everybody. Welcome to squawk box here on CNBC. We are live from the NASDAQ market site in Times Square. I'm Becky quick along with Andrew Ross Sorkin, Joe is out today. A lot of things happening. Snap shares, they're plunging. Do you reuse that? No, but our kids too. It is by far for teenagers. The most their most beloved network just because Instagram is for parents and told. Well, Instagram, they'll use once in a while for artsy pictures, but they're way of communicating with their friends is snap. So if they had to give up all but one of the social media snap would be the one that was interesting. Okay. Well, the company, despite all of that, that good news from quick family says that ad sales are being hurt by the privacy changes that Apple rolled out to iOS earlier this year. It's making it harder for companies to sell ads based on information they collect on users interests and locations now. Snap slump also impacting other major social media stocks, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest all down this morning as a result of it. This was, I think, to be expected, though they said they didn't expect it to be this bad. The online advertising players like trade desk magnite and liver ramp are also coming under a bit of pressure. But this is a lot of things that kind of are conspiring at this point. The New York Times had that story about Facebook, was it over the weekend? Right. Looking into it. And their concerns were that teen users weren't using as frequently. It had gone up to three to four hours during the pandemic, and maybe that is not going to not only continue to climb, but that's going to come back down by an hour or so a day because kids have other things that they're doing. And I think that must be impacting all of these social networks to some extent. My question to you, though, is when you get a new app on your phone, and it says allow you to track. No. You say no, I know. So you say no. I think most people probably say no. And so I do think this is probably a much harder business to be in if you are Facebook or a snap or somebody who relies on advertising. I think teenagers tend to not say no as much. Do you think because they like having their first of all, they like tracking where all of them are, and they keep track with each other and just do that and you can't do that if you don't turn it on on the phone. So I think teens are less likely to say those things. But it does show that these changes with the Apple privacy issues are going to be a much bigger impact that the market probably didn't really figure out. It's the weakness that you have for all of these apps is they're not collecting the first party data necessarily themselves. They were relying on Apple to do it and they can also say the other side. Which is I noticed the ads for me on Instagram are not as good as these to me. Oh, they work for me. I mean, you work for you. I bought this dress from an ad on Instagram. So they definitely captured me with some of the things, but I'm not the target audience by a long shot on anything. Oh no, you are. We all are. Well, anybody with money, I suppose is, but not for the ones that they're really caring about with the teens and going through. And the other thing about the millennial. That's hard. That. But what I will say is the other issue is there's not going to be as much advertising right now. The supply chain issues I kept thinking about that. If you are somebody like a Mattel or another company that can't get enough of your product in for Christmas time, how much are you actually going to be paying attention? You don't need to spend on advertising if everything is selling out before you place a single dime on advertising. So I think all of these issues are kind of coming together. Coming together at one time, and this is after the stock has had a really big run up. So all of those factors kind of together. However, we are seeing a tale of two tech giants this morning. While apple's privacy changes are slamming social players, Google slash the fees that subscription based apps are charged for the Play Store that they have. And that's in a number of the stocks that kind of rely on that surging yesterday among them. You've had duolingo, which was up by 13%. Match group, up by 10%, bumble up by 8% and then Roblox up by 6%. It's in my global market news this morning, shares of ever grand, they're on the rise. This is what happened. Overseas trading after the Chinese property developer reportedly made a bond payment battle company reportedly made the roughly $83 million payment today after missing it though last month, that triggering a 30 day grace period, which was set to expire tomorrow. Of course, now the question is, has ever grant going to miss I'm sorry, it would have entered a default if it hadn't, but there are additional payments that are to come. So this story is not over yet. You know, it just said tale of two city with tales of technology. It's the same thing here. If you are a Chinese investor, you're much better off than if you are an overseas investor who's been relying on these things that it's the overseas investors who very likely, China doesn't care about that at this point. They are much more concerned about their own economy. And by the way, you took the risk on this. So it is concerned about the rule of law see what happens and investor beware at this point if you're coming from overseas. I think. I'm with you. Wait. We are watching shares of WeWork this morning. The stock popping more than 13% yesterday as the office sharing firm finally went public through a spac deal caps a long journey for a company that was once valued as high as about $47 billion, but its initial IPO plans imploded as you remember back in 2019, while the company's leaders were at the NYSE for the opening bell where we were, founder Adam Newman was holding his own little party of sorts with dozens of former employees and his cofounder yesterday morning at the bell. Thank you all so much for coming. Miguel and I couldn't be happier than to celebrate this with our original team. We're just so proud today and for this day. And we just want to congratulate the current WeWork team. Everyone congratulate Marcelo and Sandeep for executing on this team's vision. It's an interesting dynamic because here's a guy who did create something that's obviously now of value, $10 billion of value, not 47 billion dollars of value. Clearly made a lot of mistakes along the way. The company could have demonstrably imploded. And so how much credit do you give them or don't give him for what's happened? He clearly caught the right trend, but then made lots of mistakes. Are you recognized? I mean, because his public persona has never been one that seems to take on any sort of remorse for the implosion that took place. Granted, this did wonderfully yesterday. The IPO came out well. But that's because when you're looking at 10 billion, that's the 46 billion that they got. This is the part I always look. I think there were some conflicts of interest which we talked a lot about before in terms of at one point he was buying buildings and renting them to WeWork. There were the issues of plane and governance and how the company was used selling the trademarks back and forth. But then when you say to yourself about the valuation who created the valuation, I don't believe that the valuation was created by Adam Newman. And the valuation was created by bankers and investors and frankly folks like masa son at SoftBank who were willing to do that. Now, the flip side is, all of a sudden, you have this valuation, then you go out and hire new employees and say.

It did not go notice in the washington post yesterday carrying a piece with top business leader in the houston area. Houston more blue than the rest of the state. But basically saying this is giving some businesses. And i'm paraphrasing here. Businesses some cover. We haven't had the phone ringing off the hook. The white house took notice of that right. They think that this is. This is giving the ability to give some private businesses a little bit of cover and say well. Our hands are tied. Osias making us do this so they are optimistic about it. That said chuck the numbers that you just showed. Tell the whole story. This was politicized from listen april. Twenty twenty right may of two thousand twenty when there was a different president in office. Who is taking a very different attitude towards mask wearing right.

That's not working because reggie hasn't been working now maybe there's enough maybe there's nothing he could do with this current crew of unvaccinated people. Yeah i think that there is a percentage of people who no matter what happened. And they're not only going to get vaccinated but they're going to push against this in politicize it any way that they can. But we have seen just to halley's point some of the businesses that have already taken upon themselves delta airlines others to impose vaccine mandates. What happened a portion of their employees. Who hadn't been vaccinated got vaccinated. We saw it moving the needle. And i think that the president made that calculation. There's going to be pushed back. Certainly once you have the federal government coming in with a mandate You know however restraint we it's rooted in the constitution which i believe that it is statutorily and constitutionally people don't like that they're going to be people who that's one of the reasons that they pushed against the federal the vaccine is because of a federal mandate but he had to balance that against what is actually going to work. What is actually going to get vaccines in arms. What is actually going to help. Businesses move forward and the economy move forward but thorson. George you guys look at this through decades of history this is gonna work or is this going to backfire to take the staff and you had to make sure that has the possibility look. Mandates have been part of our history for so long. Go back to old. George washington you know he mandated that his soldiers get inoculated against smallpox. And he made a great comment that i think appears today he said necessity not only authorizes. What i'm doing. It compels me to do this. Because if the virus at the smallpox rages it'll be worse than the sort of the enemy. I mean that's where we're at right now. I think for bind to reestablish himself as the leader of the country he had to respond to this crisis and more muscular way he was losing ground because the states were taking so much authority and talking about what they didn't want to do. And and you have to in a crisis show that you're mobilizing every national resource that you're giving direction to the country. And you're making the country feel that they are a whole that their collective individual liberty has to be balanced against public. And i think those are the decisions. He finally made short shorts. The other george. George this works or do you think it will backfire. It will work in the sense that it will encourage people to get vaccinated. And that's a good thing but the president's impatience is understandable as exasperation but constitutional government on the rule of law requires patients. Remember barack obama said twenty times. He could not unilaterally do what eventually he unilaterally did regarding immigration because he was out of patience and the same thing is happening here with mr biden courts however look askance at executive agencies that extract suddenly fast indeed unlimited new powers from old statutes. Well osha though has had some success sick at having those having those authorities Reinforced centers for disease control. Found out that when it decided to could have an eviction moratorium in the name of containing appendix. The statute would not permit that. This is either unconstitutional. If indeed congress has delegated essentially legislative powers to these executive agencies that would violate the non delegation doctrine which alas has been dormant for a long time in the court. However it's illegal if they are reading the statute and finding no mandate for this behavior. It's kind of a court battle right now. I going in the white house. And they're ready for it right the ducks in a row and by right..

"dr vivek murthy" Discussed on NBC Meet the Press

"Raised. Should it be shorter than should be almost five months that guidance continues to be eight months that has not changed and joining me now the. Us surgeon general. Dr vic murthy dr murphy. Welcome back to meet the press. Thank you joe. Good to see you. I wanna start with a basically before. He even took the oath of office. President biden Was very skeptical. Said there wouldn't be a mandate said. He didn't think the federal government would get involved in mandates there shouldn't be mandates etc Now he's changed his mind why we'll check from the beginning The president and all of us have said we've got to us every level we have in order to fight this pandemic. And that's what you see happening right now over the last several months. We've been working hard to get vaccines out to the public. Partnering with the private sector using every power the government has and now in the face of delta. We've got to move to the next phase of that response that involves focusing not just an expanding the vaccination effort through a combination of mandates and access but it also involves focusing on increasing testing capacity shoring up our healthcare systems which are really struggling in the face of this delta variant so. There was a lot in the plan that the president announced. Because we've got to bring everything to bear at this moment to fight. The pandemic is this an acknowledgement though that that this is i mean when you do a mandate that he's describing for private businesses. That feels like the last tool in the toolbox. If this doesn't work then what what you know what i would say. Let's just step back for moment. If you look at how far we've come We've gotten over two hundred million people one shot vaccine that seventy five percent of all eligible americans who've gotten a shot and have some degree of protection but we're not done yet because what we see is that because millions of more people are not infected. They're susceptible at moments like this with the delta variant the requirements that the president spoke about will help eighty million people the private sector seventeen million health workers and over three point five million federal workers and contractors to move closer to vaccination and. Here's the interesting thing. chuck that i think. A lot of people don't recognize many businesses have actually been looking forward to this. The business roundtable has said that this is the right move. The american medical association certainly in the health side said this is the right move. I think it will help. Workplaces do what they wanna do which is make workplaces safer so that people can feel more secure coming back to work and we can keep our economy strong given where what you had to do this week with this sort of reset Or next phase of of battling covert it really now puts. The decision may to change the masking guidance. On the vaccination. It really looks like that was a major mistake Y that seems like the one moment where politics got in the way of science because the delta variant was going through india very rapidly the. Who at that time was saying. It was a very enough concern and we seem to be acting acting at that time. As if the variant wasn't gonna come here. How did we miss this so badly in. May we'll check if you talk to the cdc about this what. They'll tell us that they were doing what they've always time. Which is to make sure that they are looking closely at the science and the date and using that to guide their decision making what they saw in may with the pre delta Version of kobe nineteen. Was that the people who were vaccinated. When they got breakthrough infections That they had a very very low likelihood of transmitting which is one of the reasons they feel comfortable pulling back on mask mandates but then things changed the delta variant came and the delta variants seem to indicate that vaccinated people who had breakthrough infections would be more likely to spread than those with The alpha variant or prior variance. And that's why. They shifted their guidance. Once again one of the things that we have to be able to do chuck in a public health. Pandemic like this. We've got to be able to look at data in real time to adjust our approach accordingly and then communicate that clearly to the public. We've got to prepare be prepared to keep doing that in the future when you were part of the campaign during twenty twenty. You were part of a team that emphasize a full response here. It's not just a vaccination approach. We've gotta get testing a contact. Tracing going it does feel as if the approach in the last eight months has been it's vaccines or bust Now you're there's a new effort to enhance testing. But where where was this the first eight or nine months because it does feel as if everything was focused on the vaccine and i get it. It's the simplest way out but it's not the only one and we've got a mass divide in this country. It's only gotten worse. Well we'll check your. You're absolutely right. That there has to be a multipronged strategy to address this pandemic. And we've actually been talking about that from the beginning. Vaccines certainly the backbone of that effort. But we know that. Other mitigation measures like masking. Distancing are important we know that testing is a critical part of the response infrastructure. And we know that shoring up and strengthening our healthcare system so we can take care of those who are. Sick is essential to Union addition to those being the areas of focus the president's announcement this week and actually been focusing on those over the last many months the billions of dollars in the aarp that were put toward testing to help. Schools for example have testing in place. So they could be ready for. The fall were a reflection of their broader set of priorities. That focus unmasking Has also been a piece of the recent announcement Actually that the president made that we are going to be sending tests millions of tests to food banks and to community health center so that people can access them free also part of that effort so yes it is true that in the in the news you see a significant focus on vaccines But let them not You know convince or conveyed anyone That they reproach here has not been brought. It has been. I've been part of the discussions. We're focusing and taking that broad approach part of the community conversations but we're to people about the variety of steps. We've got to take to get through this a practical herd immunity and in however you that wants to be defined. Let me define it this way. An uptick of ten percentage points over the next three months plus the delta variants sadly ripping through the unvaccinated are we going to be at herd immunity by the end of this calendar year because of with the combination of what i just described moore delta sadly ripping through the unvaccinated and slight uptick in vaccinations. We'll chuck how quickly we get To to a level where cases are low and stay low really depends on what we do collectively not just the government but each of us as private citizens and what universities and schools and businesses do if we work quickly to get people vaccinated That we will get there faster But we got to come together. Chuck let me tell you this. One of the things that we cannot afford to do during this pandemic is allow The covy nineteen experience to turn us against each other. Our enemy is the virus. It is not each other and i was reflecting yesterday. Chalk on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven but what we learned from the terrible tragedy. One of the things that sticks with me is that in that moment of crisis. We responded by coming together. I saw neighbors helping one another get through this crisis. I saw people turn to strangers who are suffering and offer them support..

Dr those pfizer and medina booster shots will become available the week of september twentieth. Walk us through. What americans should know about that and what to do well. Thanks martha eat. There are several things that americans should know about the booster announcement. We recently made number one. Is that the vaccines are continuing to work. Remarkably well for preventing people from ending up in the hospital and they're saving lives. So that's the reason we are not recommending boosters today but we are seeing is a decline in the protection against mild to moderate disease. And we're anticipating there may be an erosion in that important protection that we're seeing today down the line and that's why they stay ahead of this virus were recommending. The people start to get boosters. A week of september twenty they will start with people on their eight month anniversary following their second shot and by necessity that will end up prioritizing.

"Entire states like california and as of last week the entire federal government have said if you get your paycheck from us. Vaccines are an optional.

And i direct the law in health care program at the university of maryland carey school of law for we talk about what businesses are doing or what states and cities are. Doing let's start big picture. Really big picture like why can't the us just order. Every american get vaccinated after all. That's what indonesia. Or even the landlocked nation of turkmenistan hoffmann says the constitution wants to have a word so under our federalism system. The federal government is limited on the tenth amendment because the powers that are not enumerated to the federal government fall within the states so historically the states have had be authority to govern and regulate public health and just healthcare in general mostly often adds that while the federal government lacks the power to outright mandate vaccines. It does have to tools. That also happen to come from the constitution that it can use to increase vaccinations. The spending clause and the commerce clause under the spending clause. They could give grants to states and condition. Those grants on the states having mandatory vaccines. So maybe they'd be giving grants for subsidizing people who can't afford vaccines or vaccine education programs by the states and they say great well will only give you these sponges. If you have a vaccine mandate the spending clause hasn't been used to push vaccines just yet. But it's not out of the question and neither is using the commerce clause. The federal government has the authority to regulate interstate commerce. So if a had a rationale that we need back seen mandates to prevent the transmission of the virus from state to stay. And you could see that. That could be a reasonable argument. Then they could conceivably implement a vacc- mandate so for.

That's a whopping one hundred forty. Three percent increase over the past.

The county was averaging two hundred new cases every day. We've been on something of a roller coaster here with the numbers in check a month ago. La county lifted virtually all restrictions with capacity limits and social distancing bars and restaurants. They have been packed with massless people but now a sharp reversal bringing back. The mask mandate for inside public places. Regardless of your vaccination status and ten counties in california are also following suit with their own guidance.

Murphy thank you so much for joining pod. Save america really appreciate the time and hope you come back soon. Cobbled think he's alive so it was really good to be with you one last thing. I just share town my mind a lot. Is we talk about nearly as much with this. Pandemic is is really the cost to our mental health and wellbeing You know this has been incredibly difficult year and almost year and a half now for everyone in the country it does matter you You know a richer poor if you're living in urban or rural area issue. Are you end up getting cooler.

How do we really address. Mental health country talk about really honestly provide investment prevention. That works actually made an investment. Had we provide real treatment accessible high-quality treatment of people who've been struggling for too long the second thing without a lot of conversation about what we want our close pandemic look if we don't do anything differently But just keep moving forward. We will snap back to twenty nineteen how lived our life before the pandemic. But if you're like me. I unlike many out there. You probably had moments for you. During the pandemic maybe hispanic about how wanna live my life differently. Maybe something that you realize about spend more time with your family or maybe it's something you'd realize about. Maybe wanting to move closer to france Those you love or maybe realizing union more purpose meaning like in your job for the go back to school for that degree that you've been thinking about a pursue avi whatever it may be there are realizations. We've all had your this amick that we can incorporate into our thinking about what life looks like. We don't have those conversations. We don't explore what life could look like endemic. I worry that we will lose a lot of the potential civilized. Means of this pandemic lessons as you will independence. That's a conversation. I'm excited to certainly think about my own life but also excited to support in our country. It's something that our office will be working on how to support a larger series of conversations around the post pandemic life and if we approach typing in an open helping on sway. My hope is that we can build the lights. That is more fulfilling. Fear in certainly happier for many of us in the life even before i agree. That's such an incredibly important conversation to have about about mental health and wellbeing. And i do think like. I think that one small step we can all take as sort of give each other a break. Extend some some kindness and grace to everyone else. Because i've been thinking this throughout the pandemic is everyone is always going through something that you may not know right and they and however you've dealt with the pandemic you can't know for sure what someone else has gone through the last year and so it's a it's a good opportunity to to show some kindness and that doesn't fix everything but it's a it's one small step at the beginning a long way and he. It's beautifully powerful is one of the most our resources a healing that we have that as doctors written prescriptions for many medicines that intended to heal over the years. I've been struck time and time again. Adds missing concessions really go a long way and if we learned one thing from this pandemic john extent. We need each other city as much as we able to do on our own. We can't get through difficult times. Like pandemics the arches solely on our own. And in fact when we step up to help one another you not only extend assistance and lift someone else we. We remind ourselves that we have to bring to the world now. There are a lot of people. Walking around who feel like their value and their worth is not significant. Wonder at times if they're really bringing anything to the world around them. I've certainly that in times throughout my life but that his wife service to others fueled by kindness and compassionate sometimes on was powerful we can do for others could also must reaffirming things we can do for ourselves when i imagined post pandemic life when imaginable a boost in society that we could build together.

"There's here to help us answer some of these questions. The united states surgeon general. Dr murthy dr murphy. Welcome to the pot. Thanks so much. So i know that pfizer will be holding a briefing with you and other public health officials to make their case as to why they're seeking fda authorization for a booster shot cove in nineteen. Dr fauci was on the sunday shows yesterday. Saying he doesn't believe booster is required at this time. Meanwhile countries like the uk and israel have already announced plans to offer boosters to certain populations in the fall. Can you talk about why. There's a difference of opinion here. Let's wake mission on the decision on loosers really has to come from a broad look at the data and the data has Actively tell us that immunity is waning a among vaccine people and waiting to his signature degree. That you're seeing breakthrough infections. And that's a point which you would consider a booster now. I wanna make a distinction year. There are certain populations in compromise individuals. Were there have been questions about whether they should receive a third dose just as part of the routine series and most people to be running. Mri vaccine or one. If you get. Johnson johnson betsy questions it. Should they get shot. If are on the two dose regiment give themselves. They're give them an extra boost in terms of antibody action that may happen. It's israel has decided people. Pathway others names all that is separate from this question of is everybody's general population require boosters. And so what we really need to do is look at the data from europe. The united states other countries in the world and see if in fact immunity is waning. Breakthrough infections are increasing. And if that's the case then was recommended at the end of the day. The f- the cdc will make a decision. On boosters pharmaceutical companies may opine on this may apply for authorization for booster shots. But they don't make the recommendation. Yes so if you're someone who was vaccinated back in december or january. Say you know. Maybe you're over sixty five or you have an underlying condition while you guys are looking at the data can you still be confident that your protection against the delta verion hasn't waned it all we we still sees the six month mark. We've certainly seen that protection. Remains pretty strong particularly protection against a defendant severe disease hospitalizations and case in point. If you look at it deaths. That are taking place in the united states right now. More than ninety nine percent of them are taking place among individuals who are unvaccinated. So that means again. The vaccinated individuals still this point in july behind degree of protection. That doesn't mean that that's gonna last forever. And that's why we're really closely on cohorts of people in the united states talking to our counterparts around the world to see if and when that immunity designate it does we will be prepared to give. Those aren't even working on insurance. I will be yeah. I had a question about timing Decided the boosters are needed will americans who need them be able to get them in the fall like the british and the israelis are we going to be behind the eight ball on us. We're planning for variety of circumstances. Should be there and you know any good news is we got good supply right now and we have been in dialogue with the companies the manufacturers to ensure that when we need those shirts we will have Here's a self interested question that i'm going to ask anyway because i've been also hearing it from a lot of other people. I got the johnson and johnson vaccine There have been some experts who said it may not be as protective against delta. Marin vaccine's live with an unvaccinated one year old. Do you think. I need a booster so this is a really important question. We think special from folks. Who got the guts johnson vaccine. So here's what i would say if you look at the data actually from israel from the k. On what we see is with the officer maxine there so a high degree of production ride vegans hospitalizations and deaths and we don't have seen equivalent data. I real world data. He will or j. vaccine with delta part of the reason is that people in the united states received other a vaccine the vast majority of received the other two so it takes a little bit longer actually see a signal there but there is reason to be hopeful that the protection is quite strong number one. Jj has actually been very active against all the other variants. We've seen today particularly with hospitalizations index. The second reason is that laboratory studies that have been done now from multiple sources with people who had been immunized. Jj and then take their antibodies and look at how effective it utilizing the delta during the laboratories in these multiple instances in the lab. They found that. Jay is sort of an induced antibodies. neutralizing delta marion. The third reason to be hopeful is there is a cousin. If you will of the vaccine astra zeneca vaccine platform that has in real world. Eight in the uk showed to be very effective in reducing hospitalizations due to delta. So all of these points. The right direction doesn't mean we're gonna continue to look at the data and make sure that this carries out in the real world among those vaccinated. Jj but you good reason to be oracle and at this point that's five years official be made or changing booster sponsored. Wait for the data. Then basically she for the data absolutely and there's some people may decide they wanna talk.

Trump's approval rating among cpac attendees was ninety eight percent all of which could only reinforce world renowned narcissist donald trump's belief that his people want him to run again a decision. He took a few inches closer to during an interview with maria barreda romo before his speech on sunday. Here's a clip to get back in that ring and run for president again answer. Well i do know my answer. But i can't reveal it yet and because that has to do with campaign financing everything else you know that so i can't reveal yet but i absolutely know my answer and we're going to very well. People are going to be very happy. What do you make those comments. It is it. Is it time to start. Taking trump seriously as the likely republican nominee in two thousand twenty. Four i'll say i one other piece of donald trump's future that was in his message was that he started going after he started saying some incoherent things about prosecutors in new york because i think a little bit of him is still he's he's previewing his message if he is eventually charged with something right so that was part of photocopied. The documents handed them to the new york prosecutors. What i took away from the straw polls is like these fucking people. The knowns and pompeo's groveling and crawling over broken glass to beg these people to become a constituency. Like i know you like trump but i'm here to and i'm really trying to be something that you want me to say anything you need. I'll do one interview with npr in a year and then kick them out like whatever you need me to do to be your guy be your guy and they don't give a fuck about anybody except trump and ron scientists. That's it that's it seventy percents in that good surprises me for the most maga base. Yeah although i think. What's the i mean i'm not saying he's gonna lose. That's pretty decent law other than ninety eight percent approval rating to run again. That's that's notable also maria bromo. I mean she's lost threat so long ago she referred to ashley babbitt again. The woman who climbed through a window and was shot at the capitol on january. Six is a wonderful woman who went to a peaceful protest trump and asserts that the head of security for democrats shot her and he called for his people. I believe he said to be released. The people in custody it was very it was again a very dark dark exchange. The insurrection was good. Is the new branding from donald trump. It wasn't it wasn't a big deal. That was the first thing. Oh wasn't that big of a deal. Now it's it was good and it'd be like we all expected the revisionist history in on the election lies in the fraud. And all these audits going on or helping that case but to to watch the images of what we january six and then come away saying wonderful people at peaceful. Protest is just shows that facts. Don't matter it's all just what team you're on but i i think these other republican candidates potential candidates. I don't see the path. I don't even see the path for ron to santa's i think you get seventy percent nepal like that that is fucking crushing among a big field. Like that i think he clearly loves adulation. You see everything. He said. In that speech every utterance sounded like a man who just cannot stop himself from running again. He fucking loves it. he needs it. It's going to happen. And then i don't see how he gets beaten even if he if he's indicted like you said love it. He's got a story for being indicted and charged arens. I go well. Then his businesses. You might be broke because it was visible. He doesn't care if he's fucking brocail. Run broke to doesn't matter money. Donald trump has been adam sandler unconscious for fucking years. Now he is he is he is snorting adderall and keeping his debtors at bay and breaking the law and barely escaping but he has escaped every single time. Why on earth would he run again. It's the best thing you could possibly do. Humidity is indicted. And regardless first of all. I'm interested to see just like rhonda santa's having these kind of poking his head up Out of the out of the trench Getting a little bit higher in these polls plus sitting around a table with joe biden did not trying to personally throttle him. His created a moment. I i'm interested. See what donald trump does because if donald trump does not care for onto scientists lives or fucking dies and he if he's worried about someone else going to challenge him he's got a he's got a figure out a way to make drama santa's life pretty miserable But regardless like okay let's say trump in some fluke doesn't run for whatever reason. What did we watch. We watch cpac and this whole propaganda machine which is a machine for turning politicians into little trump's there donald trump will be the nominee whether it's his name or not that is done there. There's no there's no ideological debate in the republican party. There is no conservative review action against what these people have built like. This is it it is his world. I would still argue that. He's he's still more dangerous than all of them. He's just he's proven to be a pretty good demagogue right. Yeah yeah see that. What would what would like taking him seriously. Nominee like. Do you think the idea that he is getting closer. To running. should affect the white house strategy. The democratic strategy are are mid term strategy. Do we elevate him. Do we not talk about him. Like what what would you guys think about that. I don't know quite yet. I think the biden folks will continue to try to run on accomplishments and trying to get this. Bipartisan deal done and it was interesting. One of the only sort of strategic things he did in the speech was trump. Came out hard against the hartson infrastructure. Deal it was one. The few sort of political positions. He took that seemed designed to harm biden. The other thing he did that i really took notice was he criticized biden for getting out of afghanistan but leaving equipment there but then was like no. It's time we should be out of there right. He kind of his way from the republican party. Any criticism of the withdrawal. Although i guess they'll just reframe it. Yeah i mean it was. It was right. He was saying it's of the vaccine like I deserve credit for the vaccine. But the don't get it. It's like i. I believe we i. I deserve credit for ending the war ending. The war is but the way they're doing it is terrible In some sort of you know amorphous improv. Kind of way. The biden white house strategy in this political strategy along it has been to rebuild trust in government by proving the government can deliver and change your life for the better. I think that is essential. I think they have to do that for sure. I don't think it's sufficient though. And that's where i think that the trump and comes in like i think the democrats have to have answers for the critical race theory. Fearmongering the cancel culture fearmongering the immigration stuff. The crime stuff all the shit that trump said. That doesn't just put democrats on the defensive. That's not just response but puts republicans on the defensive on some of these issues as well and starts telling a story about it. Because i don't think we will be able to just ignore all that it's okay. They're going to do cultural or stuff. People don't care about that people care about checks and pockets and shots arms. That's all people care about because in an age where we have a very powerful propaganda machine on the right and a very powerful propaganda machine through social media like. I don't think that we can just put our head in the sand and think okay. We're going to focus on improving people's lives and matt's enough. 'cause i don't think it's enough. Yeah it's And i do think one lesson like you're right. Donald john trump junior didn't need to say the lie because the lie is already fully embraced by and he said it before you know of course but you know. Republicans saw something that no one had ever heard of critical race theory and they didn't say that's not what they're interested in hearing about..

"Twice. Became worse became worse. That's a really good job. Sorry everybody just a good joke. It's just funny to tell a joke from the perspective of the democrats trying to stop them like you to make me better. You made me worse. I think that's great good for him. It's also just such a fuck you to this. Susan collins of the world right who said oh after the first impeachment. He's gonna he's gonna learn his lesson right and it's it's it's a reminder also think of why the only thing that works with trump is taking away his power deterrence doesn't work appeasement doesn't work ignoring him doesn't work right only thing. That works is beating him. That's the only thing he understand. And and i. It's worth noting that the that was a what he was he was comparing himself to. Bill barr his attorney general. Bill barr who was a supplicant. To donald trump. For virtually all the time he was attorney. General believes in basically unlimited presidential. Power did a ton to to to to. What's it called in football and you block for somebody. Run blocking sure. Run blocking pass blocking run blocking for him. What kind of player we like. It's when somebody's in front of somebody with the ball. Kind of like i'm bill. Barr was the fullback in this. Now option your blocks buck you nailed it the first time you put in the comments. There's more specific thing and he the point is what's the lesson here is he is he is again. He is now saying that. Bill barr gaunt. He's few still fears that that atlantic bill barr mcconnell kind of betrayed him on behalf of the democrats not because they thought it was an up because he was doing what he thought. Was you know a hint of the right thing but because it was a part of the deeper betrayal by the same thing with brick kavanagh right. We majoring bright cavanaugh. And he said oh well because brad. Cavanaugh was almost not confirmed because the democrats went after him that's why he didn't vote to believe it. Of course he said that's why he voted with the democrats as if if everything is like an election a competition when he really meant that like the supreme court rejected the absurd fucking claims from donald trump in his right crack legal team about voter fraud. He said bill barr got intimidated by an impeachment threat. Out of doing a whole bunch of things punching a bunch of enemies including I guess arresting. He said the women who slandered and defamed brad kavanagh so like the people came forward to accuse break. Cavanaugh of sexual assault trump suggested in. This speech should have been punished in some way. It was really a dark fucked up and the whole point. He was making his dark. Which is democrats play tough. They don't play nice and maybe now we need to play. Yeah matt we can't. We shouldn't get up. We tried to burn the fucking cabaret. I thought that was tough. But that's why it's so fucking scary. He's telling them like no no they still play dirtier we gotta match them. That was the point of that part of the and also he. He went on that. You know obviously ige thinks cavenaugh was mistreated during hearings and then he makes the point that the reason that the conservative scream court is actually behaving like a democratic court is the threat of court packing because he can't allow even that they have any kind of power. You can't tell this audience like at least we have. The supreme court ruled to protect voting rights. On behalf there are the trailer and everything's grievance and you'll win yes that's right that's exactly right. There's there's one more clip that's that's kind of funny. Where trump admits something about polling. Play that now. If it's bad. I i say.

Non trump cpac lights that stayed with you from the weekend before we get to the the man himself You know the the vaccination thing that that bummy out good I was not thrilled to see the oath keepers. If our militia there was another sort of far right group there. Nick went has gripers. Who are the people to the right of the maga people who looked like the cast of super bads or storming cpac. I do think like that is usually like the fringe of where these cpac events are is where we kind of the majority of the republican party ends up in a couple years. So you know. It's scary to see these like rightwing militia groups in there. I mean that stuff is terrifying. You have anything else. it's interesting. How many conspiracy theories involve like practice runs. Always practicing you know like they're coming for the bible's but i they're doing jade helm like the pre. Yeah jade home was a good example. Like they're caught like this idea that like all right. There was a pandemic. We created a vaccine in record time under republican administration to practice for the bible taking like we finally have our opportunity to do our bible taking practice. The governor's were trying to take people's guns. Wait for like twenty. Thirty years now failed succeeded a couple of times so of course. The main event was dumped trump speech on sunday afternoon which touched on all the latest threats in grievances on the right like critical race theory and cancel culture. He also played. Some of the old hits like windmills are evil. We love windmills or evil. That's an old hit. But the heart of what was a long incoherently rambling. Speech was trump's continued attack on the legitimacy of the two thousand twenty election by spreading lies about voter fraud. That never happened. Take listen.

"A younger people are well aware of what the risks really love it. Do you get the sense that a lot of republican politicians and especially republican media. Figures are more openly anti vaccine lately. Why do you think they're going down this path. Frank franklin's told andy. Slap it on his pod today that Trump is sending out fundraising mailers claiming that people are dying from the vaccines. Yeah i mean they are. I think a couple things are happening one. This is in extension of cova does overblown so implicit. A lot of this is. Oh if you're older if you're an risk category you should get vaccinated but no one else needs to get vaccinated. Because they're lying about how it's still they. They don't recognize how it can still hurt younger people and they don't recognize mutual obligation. I guess even if you accept that premise. Why wouldn't you get this vaccine. It's harmless obviously and we'll protect the older people who are more vulnerable The other piece of it is that we've sort of hit the the kind of threshold removed from scarcity in this country to now it is time to go to local persuasion now it is time to go to like trusted people in communities to get that last group of people vaccinated so then i put that gives them an opportunity. They can prevent it from succeeding. That's a goal. They can feed conspiratorial mindset. The goal they keep the attention of their broken viewers who are easily pulled by an and newsmax which are more conspiratorial. And then when you talk about things like eating to go inside of communities they can kind of fan. The flames of this is some door to door effort to kind of force people to get the vaccine. And because tucker carlson and laura ingram don't care if people live or die and are completely valueless. it's an opportunity for them to so chaos and the republicans. Just follow them along permission to float a conspiracy theory her permission. Thank you see madison. Cawthorn said that the reason they were going door to door for vaccinations was to prepare to eventually take away. Your gun in your bible. I did not see that. I knew i saw madison stupid. That madison cawthorn said was trending. But i did not do not look into it because it was a good one. Well nobody like the governor of let me. I have a way worse conspiracy right part of my love of saying like fao cheese. The new bogeyman binds boring. Here's the other thing. I want to the conspiracy theory for you so kristi nome. May this oblique attack on republican governors. Who say they didn't lock down. But they really lockdown. It's just sort of viewed as an oblique shot at ron to santa's You think she's doing this as a stalking horse for the trump family who's now worried about the santa's well you're deepen all. That's i read enough cpac. I missed the christie known thing though. That's yes it was. It was like the kristi noem thing. It's so many it's so many levels of bullshit deep. It's like hey you may get the impression that some of these republican governors Did the wrong thing. Don't let them lie to you. About how wrong they were. Some of them were right and we should hold them accountable to raise. That's the known position. I made sure that my state was leading the country and capita deaths. Can ronda sant. Santa say that no he cannot. I think the the antibac- sort of trend now in the republican party now that it's becoming more mainstream. Republican party really does fit with the larger story. They're trying to tell which is you can't trust the radical left and the radical left is now taking over all of our institutions and now they're in power and they're going to constantly make you do shit that you don't want to do they're going to force things in your life and if they give you a vaccine you can't trust that vaccine from the radical left just like you can't trust them teaching things in schools and you can't trust them that they're going to you know they're going to try to take away your free speech right like it has all of sort of peace here. That's overwhelming theme. The the the liberals are going to take stuff from you in the far right wing of the republican party are we are the only ones who can stop them guns freedom of speech your facebook feed cova restrictions funding for cops the border and then eventually it got to trump who is like and they took the result of the election from you right. The there was somebody wandering. Washington post found somebody wandering around cpac which you know looked to be any really any big political gathering. Has this of person it. You know a backpack covered in buttons lot of red string of big sign with strings from george soros to champ biden like back and forth lines all over the place and that was always taken as this sort of status quo ante like there are these infringe figures with conspiracy theories but now like you have former national security advisers doing events taking pictures in front of the same kind of thing. Donald trump is like a red string guy now standing in front of this group of people and madison. Cawthorn saying that they're going to go door to door to take your bibles guns like this vaccination effort which they're obviously there is no national door to door campaign but this is a dry run for some future nefarious. Act like the that is now at the center of the republican party. That's but it's also like you know everything. Everything new is old. Right i it. It reminds you in brian. Butler wrote about this In his newsletter last week it reminds you of the death panels and fury over obamacare in twenty ten right. Which is the government's gonna decide whether you live or die now. It's the government's going to go door to door and make you take this vaccine that we're not sure we know. Do we really know. What senate do we really know if it safe. Donald johnny deserves credit for it deserves credit for it in the the classic grievance politics true and it's it's highly racial and trump made more explicit than ever before when he was saying horrible things about mexicans during announcement speech. But it's basically like hey white republican base liberals are gonna take things from you and give them to other people worry about your status..

And i think the last Handsaw up was that of erga. omnes if you're still in the room let us know maybe Go off mute and ask your question to the surgeon general. I have a very good question. If the look at the global vaccination the numbers are very low and president biden announced that we will be helping with eighty million goes overseas. This is fantastic news but still when you just compare about the population numbers. It's very very orderly process. So as americans. We feel very safe in our country but when the americans feel almost under percents safe when it comes to international travels and in all global pandemic management interesting.

I two companies in other countries. That can help. Can we come back to something you just said. The administration said it will waive some patent protections for co vaccines in order to get drugs to low income countries. As you've just said but the counteraction has been from pharmaceuticals right. You've seen lobby groups running ads calling the move. Harmful calling the move damaging. What's your response to this. This idea that you're you're disincentivising future vaccine makers with this move. I think that in ordinary circumstances like what we're facing now we've lost millions of lives around the world we're seeing still a large hearth hot spots in indian brazilian many other countries. I think extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and be all to step up. I'm not worried about the long term like in terms of innovation.

Trump pledges coronavirus vaccine will be developed by election day

"More now on president trump's controversial timeline for Corona Virus Vaccine Dr Vivek Murthy is joining us right now he's the former surgeon general of the United States. He's also an advisor to the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden Dr Murthy fact so much for joining us and as you heard the president is teasing a vaccine. He says before a special date by that he means Election Day November third as the former surgeon general does that raise red flags to you? It's good to be with you today and I like so many people in the medical community really hopeful that we will have a vaccine by EIB your year end or by early next year and we need one. Because so many people have. been affected by Kobe lost their lives cove, and if we had an effective vaccine, we may have been able to avoid many of these debts. But the key thing about the process for getting vaccine is that it has to be driven by science and scientists not by political or you know figgers by political timelines and that's really important because right now we have about a third of people on surveys who are saying that if a vaccine was available today, they either would not take it or unsure if they would ticket despite how bad everything has been with Kobe that means that we've we've got to hold ourselves to A. High Standard of accountability in issuing approval or an emergency authorization and their three key requirements to keep in mind. The first is that we've got to have sufficient high quality data that tells us that a vaccine meets the standards for safety and efficacy second, we have to have transparency in the data itself so that scientific authorities can actually look at the state of themselves outside of government and evaluated the third we've got also have a clear plan for distributing vaccine quickly and fairly and this is not easy to do. It requires having robust data systems for example, to track WHO's gotten the vaccine to make sure it's not inequitably. Distributed, but we cannot do in this process is Russian authorization without hearing directly from scientists or advisory groups that would really set us back in terms of public faith in vaccines. Public has to be confident in the safety. To be sure our Elizabeth Cohen spoke to a federal official Dr Murphy who said and I'm quoting I don't know any scientists involved in this effort who thinks we will be getting shots into arms any. Before Election Day. What do you think is a more realistic timeline. More realistic expected we will start to see You know good news about a vaccine being approved at the end of the calendar year or beginning of next year, and that would be an optimistic scenario, and then it takes some time after that to actually deliver the vaccine and get the shot in the arm. So to speak because a shot in the arm is what matters at the end of the day that's how we actually. Protect people and stop discredit covid nineteen.
