Another day another case of presidential corona virus misinformation. Today president trump suggesting without any evidence that a vaccine could be ready by election day. MOM optimistic that it'll be probably around that date. I believe we'll have the vaccine before the end of the year certainly, but around that day. Yes. I think contradicting government health experts who say a vaccine likely won't be ready until the end of the year at the earliest. Earliest by projection, which is only projection, is that somewhere towards the end of the year, the beginning of twenty, twenty one, we will know whether we have a safe and effective vaccines. Trump's claim the latest wishful thinking from a president who has repeatedly made false and misleading statements about the pandemic. It's going away. Now, it'll go away things go away.

Any demographic group WHO's not seriously trying to get to the end game of suppressing this? It will continue to smoulder and smolder and smolder. and. Then there's the president's false claim about the corona virus and children. The fact is that they are virtually immune from this problem and we have to open our schools. I'm talking about from getting very sick. Their immune systems are very, very strong that very powerful and they. They. Seem to be able to handle it very well. I get the sense that maybe the president doesn't doesn't know what the word immune means between two hundred and fifty, three, hundred and fifty thousand children have been infected by this virus. Children may be a little less likely to get back did and we don't know how likely they are to spread it others, but they're not immune from the disease. No one who hasn't had his immune from this disease facebook and twitter removed the video of trump's false claim about children to avoid spreading misinformation with twitter.

Girls by her longtime companion convicted sex offender. Jeffrey! Epstein she has pleaded not guilty. I haven't really been following it too much i. just wish your well. Frankly the warm wishes for Maxwell are bringing renewed scrutiny to trump's relationship with her and Epstein who government officials say died by suicide in his jail cell last year after being charged with sex trafficking, some Republican lawmakers reacted to trump's comments on twitter.

It is even said he likes beautiful women as much as I and many of them are on the younger side. After I've seen was arrested last year. Trump had a different tune claiming he kicked Epstein now. Go years before. He was a fixture in Palm Beach. I had a falling out with them a long time ago. I don't think I've spoken to him for fifteen years I wasn't a fan. Prosecutors say Maxwell went into hiding over the last year as more victims came forward, alleging she learned them in and groom them to be sexually abused by Epstein alleged victim. Virginia Jufri has claimed Maxwell recruited her in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety nine, while she was a locker room attendant at trump's mar-a-lago resort, though she never alleged any wrongdoing by the president. And Jake. The comments at the president made about Maxwell caught some White House officials off guard now. He is expected to brief again shortly, so we'll see if he addresses this then.

Director Rod Lurie on 'The Outpost'
"The new movie the outpost. It was the most downloaded film of the weekend, and it's an immersive experience. It's about an outpost in Afghanistan at the base of this valley. If you're just joining us, it was sort of a bizarre placement of this base. But what happened was there was a Taliban insurgency of massive proportion and the director of the film Rob Gloria's is talking with us. This was a true incident. It was chronicled in a book by Jake Tapper, and then you brought it to the screen. Yeah. Jake Tapper released that best selling book in 2012. It was great. You know, when I When I first time out to do it, I called Jake up and, you know, he just wants to talk movies. So I want to do is talk about politics. So we sort of have to divvy it up every time that way. Have a conversation just because you mentioned politics I want tojust also know this is not a political film at all. I mean, really like there's no, no, it's not Pro War antiwar, pro GOP Anti GOP Pro Democrats. Cetera. There's none of that. No, it's about it's about. We really focus on the eight dudes of lost our lives and the two living member to living survivors. By definition, They're living survivors who received the Medal of Honor. One is Ty Carter, played by Caleb Landry, Jones and the other Is Scott Eastwood on DH. He plays staff Sergeant Clint Roma Shay and And that's really worried for what it really is A chronicle of what happened in the battle and sort of the events that led up to it. I would tell you more than anything else. And you know you've got Orlando Bloom and it also it's funny that one should you know, Should you give everybody best haircut and the you know basic Army. Whatever that, you know, Whatever you call it, you lose track. I guess I'm trying to say of any celebrity in it all. It's all very immersive. How did you know that was clearly a desire on your part, too? You know these battle sequences and just the feeling over time is that we're actually there at the outpost. Well, you know, the one of the things that I did mark is that I shot most of most of the film every scene in one long tape in the battle sequences, things on these long, I think really fluid takes And so you know, there's you don't think you're in a movie. I don't think you don't see cutaways. You don't see You know Scotty's would shooting his weapon and then cut a bad guy going down. It's you know, it's all in the long fluid. Um, uh, shots and as a result, I think that you're you're deeply embedded in every scene. At least that's what we were. That's what we're going for. Well, All the reviews were saying the exact same thing isn't very well reviewed film. But I have to ask you, though, from a filmmaker's pinpoint as you're doing that all in one continuous shot. You have all of these things got here got bullets everywhere and you got stuff blowing up and you've got, you know, guys running this way and other people running that way and people climbing over, you know, I mean, there's a lot to choreographing end in one of those things doesn't happen. You gotta retake it again. Oh, so like, you know, that's exactly right. So we've got special effects. I mean, you already laid it all out on the special effects the actress to get it right. And I remember there was this one really, really magnificent Take That we did, and kid Landry Jones, who zeal just hauling ass hundreds of yards, and we're following in the hallway with the, uh you know this one camera and the camera operators exhausted when it's all done, but everyone we nailed it and everybody's cheering and high fiving and tight. Carter. The actual Medal of Honor winner is there and he's hugging and crying, and you got it exactly right and then our military experts Guy named Jericho Dem and comes up and says, No, no, no, no, no, You've got it all wrong. No, no, It's a mess back guy that I was holding his weapon like that doesn't look like one explosion. Supposed to look like I said them. Come on, man. It's a movie was okay. Well, if you want every military guy in America and the world elastic find, Okay. Let it all up again and do it again, You know, And that is the thing you you have to be loyal to story and also to the look of the film as He said before the break. You know you are connected to the military sort of in your own personal history. And obviously a lot of military people looking on this movie. Well, well, you know we've gotten look, I wrote an article today in the deadline and what I said was, it's really difficult to know the metrics of success are But to me how the veterans have reacted to this has been like, unbelievable. And and you know what Marc, also how the families of fallen reacted to this. That was really freaking way. Show them this movie last October, we flew them in the moms and the dads and the brothers and the You know the wives and the kids, and we don't know what they're gonna say after work, you know? The actual soldiers that were there, looking at the worst day of their lives depicted on screen. And these families are looking at their loved ones dying on screen. You know, a couple of people afterwards and you know, I I didn't realize they swore so much. Ah, but there was really in the end, very gracious. And they hugged us and they loved us because you know they're They're boys. They're men and their sons there. They're going to be remembered forever now and You know, That's not something every soldier gets. So you know, I know it sounds corny, more But you know, having been a soldier that is really it was really, really important to all of us. I think it's happened. The capper was a wreck that night, and it's really interesting to watch it because that guy's such a cool cookie when he's interviewing generals and senators and governors and ripping them new ones, and you know who he is, But you know, on a night like this It was a flop Sweating. So was so was I, but it was It was pretty amazing night. I mean, you have to. You really are trying to honor the memory of people and you're trying to honor those who fought so valiantly and the movie, I think does that with, you know, without knowing the history as deeply as you do, Obviously, I just I was riveted by it, and I think it's powerful, both emotionally and in every other way. The movie is called the Outpost. Rod Lurie is the director. It's got Orlando Bloom's got Eastwood mentioned Caleb Lander Jones as well, but it really transcends any kind of one performance. I think it's really one of those films that I was blown away by. So congratulations. Really nice job, Rod. Thank you, Marc. I I really really appreciate appreciate it. it. Thank Thank you you for for Allowing Allowing me me on. on. I'm I'm very very proud proud to to be be on on with with you. you. Mark Mark Johnson Johnson tonight. tonight. Thank Thank you. you. Robert Robert Florey. Florey. Alright, Alright, Rod Rod Lord Lord movies movies the the outpost. outpost. Thanks, Rod.
‘The Outpost’: A War Film Remembers the Fallen
"There's a lot of talk about this film That's based on a book that was written by Jake Tapper called the Outpost and the Holy Moly. I mean, for those of us looking for a molecular altering war drama in this age of sheltering in place. Isn't this movie The outpost? It's an Afghanistan war drama film directed by the always reliable and former film critic Rod Laurie. And, as you said, Based on the 2012 nonfiction book, The Outpost and Untold Story of American Valor by Jake Tapper. And It's about the Battle of Cam Desh, which I knew nothing about which happened in 2009 in northern Afghanistan when 300 Taliban attacked the American outpost, Keating Which was built in a remote valley that was completely surrounded by the Hindu Kush mountains. And this was one of several outposts that the I learned this from watching. The movie is one of several outposts of the US Army established in 2006 in northern Afghanistan, whose purpose was to connect with the locals and stop the flow of weapons and Taliban fighters from Pakistan. So, but this outpost was literally at low ground. It was surrounded by mountains, so in a way the American soldiers who were stationed there We're sitting ducks for the Taliban. In fact, as the movie says, in the beginning of one analyst maintains that this particular outpost must might just as well have been called Camp Custer because everyone at the outpost was probably going to die. So at least you the viewer right from the get go because they Tell you a lot of this. In the beginning, you know the kind of war story you're going to be in for and what's going to follow, and this movie was anti war and anti war movies. They come very powerful, very visceral, very intense. And in one sense, it's nothing we haven't seen before. When I was watching it. I thought of movies like Paths of Glory in all quiet on the western Front of Gallipoli. But that doesn't take away from the fact that from the You know this story and the power and the intensity of what is an extremely well crafted and well acted movie. In a way it's torturing us having to sit through. This is kind of like Black Hawk down. It kind of reminded me of that, too, because you know, it ain't going to turn out well for these soldiers. There's a slow burning build up and the seeds are slowly sewn to a build up of what amounts to a 45 on screen. Massacre, but it's awfully good. I mean this movie if you have the stomach for it, and it brings, you know brings with it. A message seems to have to repeat it constantly and books and in movies and in history books you know before humanity decides it wants nothing more to do with wars and alternative. The conflict. It's It's a powerful anti war statement that says war is Hell. War's pointless wars. Ridiculous and you know, but we seem to Be constantly involved in them. And anyway, the movie was scheduled to premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival this year, but it was canceled because of the cove it on 19 pandemic, But it's going to be released via video undermanned beginning today. So happy for the July everybody, holy cows. We put you through the wringer. You know, it's funny to remember you were you were talking earlier We were talking What? We have been talking about this about missing the big screen experience. Yes, yes and When this When this length came to review, there was a letter attached to it. I'm sure everybody got this all the critics, but I just wanted to read because the cracks because, Hey, hey, this is Rob Laurie, the director of the outpost. I am excited. You're going to be one of the first people to see our film, on the other hand is, I am sure doesn't surprise you. It's a bit of a bummer that I am unable to show this to you. The way was originally intended on the big ass screen with the full visual scope and sound every inch of this film was designed to make it a fully immersive experience. Dance boy Waas mean I even on the small screen. It was particularly the battle, which takes up the second half of the film. So from the person who made this film to a fellow film lover, I would ask you to please try and replicate the theater experience as much as possible. And by that, I mean that you watched the movie and a single uninterrupted way and on the largest possible screen with the best multi channel sound system you have available. Please take care to watch it in a darkened room with appropriate minimal theater lighting is there are a few nights Seems that may get lost otherwise, and on a technical note, I would kindly ask that you make sure the streaming player is set to stream at 11080 p or better this will ensure the best possible picture within the limitations of the player. In other words, please if you can know, watching it on your iPhone or your laptop that Zai anyway, I just thought that was it was a hoot. That's really funny, but I get it. I mean, I understand why he wants you to watch it in the best quality that you possibly can. Absolutely and Well, I did watch it on a computer. It was a big computer screen. But I'm telling you, I can't imagine seeing this on the big screen. I mean, you'd never be the same under really You'd have to be literally carried out. It's that powerful a movie. I really recommend it. But just with the caveat that you know it's a tough watch. But it it really takes you into this hopeless battle. Um, And there's a little bit of one little, maybe one or two rays of light at the end, But oh, and I also want to say, I want to mention this to everybody Thinking of watching the movie stated it is the end credits come 10 minutes before the actual movie. Watch it to the end to the end, because there's a lot of Great stuff in the end credits that I don't even want to go into. But it might be easy to just turn it off. At one point. Where are we watching? It is called almost and it's on. It's on. It's on video D as of today, Okay? Okay. Happy Fourth of July outpost. Okay, outpost,
Florida leads nation in average number of daily new coronavirus cases
"Is holding onto an unfortunate ranking with nine thousand, four, hundred eighty eight new corona virus cases reported just today. Florida leads the nation outpacing California and Texas and having the most cases reported in a single day CNN's Randi Randy in Palm Beach. County Florida for us. Randi health officials are really putting the pressure on younger people to help slow the spread. Absolutely Jake. We're seeing now about one hundred sixty nine thousand cases statewide more than thirty six hundred deaths, and it's younger people who seem to be getting the most sick right now. The Median Age, the state of Florida for those testing positive is thirty seven years old. It used to be over sixty five and twenty five to thirty four year olds jake makeup, twenty percent of the state's entire number of cases, so it's definitely hitting the younger people. The latest numbers show that seven thousand miners in the state of Florida have been infected with Covid, and also the governor of course is not now closing the stay. There's no statewide. Statewide mandate to close it or to roll back any of the openings. He certainly leaving the beaches opens leading up to the counties. If you look over my shoulder this beach here in Palm Beach, county would normally on the holiday weekend be jam packed. certainly not going to be because it's closed as well as the beaches in Miami Dade, and also in broward, but some beaches. Jake are going to be left open Volusia County. They're gonNA monitor crowds with drones and Jacksonville beach is going to be left open because the mayor there says that it was the bars, not the beaches that caused the spike in
What to know about COVID-19 in Houston, Harris County
"Us now doctor who shot. He's the executive director for Harris County. Texas public health which includes Houston doctor. Thank you for joining US Harris County the third largest county in in the country, and it's now a corona virus hotspot population obviously. How bad is it on the ground right now where you are? Jake, first of all thanks for having me and let me let me answer that in a couple of ways wine. Is that obviously when you see and hear the numbers that we're we're you know we're seeing? But also what? You just brought up. Our concern is really very much about the numbers are one thing, but really it's. It's how busy the system is throughout whether it's the healthcare system as you just mentioned on the top of the hour here or if it's really what we're seeing in the community with folks that are really trying to get tested. We have seen an increase in everything, and that's what really concerns us. The Houston Mayor says the city needs to move quickly to slow this explosion of new cases. What needs to happen right now. To make sure that happened, so it doesn't get any worse. Well, as you know, Jake we as a community, did a fantastic job of fighting this pandemic early, and and all of our numbers show that case rates, death rates, etc, and now what we've seen since the reopening occurred starting may first and as you know other reopening was from the state side of of what they had decided how they had decided things. We're going to reopen. Since that period of time we've seen increases in cases and hospitalizations and the key masters that were saying is that we need to make sure that as things reopen and. You see three or four weeks later a few weeks later that you start to see the impact of the reopening now when you dial back, it's going to take a few weeks so for you to start to see. has there been an impact of that dampening back or that? Dial back and that's what we're really concerned about, is that have we already set this in motion that it's going to be too late to get all that we don't think so. We hope that we still have that opportunity as a community if we all. All do the right things. Stay home as our county executive judge Dala go on Friday. Raise the level of alert to read stay home if you don't need to go out certainly aware the face coverings, and do all the things, but stay out of those big crowds and social distancing is absolute, must and certainly testing the aspect of the final aspect that we WANNA. Make sure that people don't guess they take the test that we can. We can certainly know who's positive in our community. That's our best chance to get out of this. I want to share the rate of new cases in Texas because the rise is really dramatic just a few weeks ago. Texas seemed to gets to plateau holding steady at fewer than two thousand new cases a day, and now there's just this massive spike. What happened? Well I. Think I just said it was reopening. And what? I call the layering effect you layered reopening on top of holidays, milestone events, Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekend. You had the protests here. At least in in Houston on top of that graduations you had all sorts of activities that occurred. People layered back onto their normal activities as well as additional activities, and that's when you started to see the increase. I'm glad that the governor. Governor and the state have dialed back, but we are very concerned that urban communities such as Houston and obviously Harris. County, here also Austin and San Antonio in Dallas. We've got to make sure that we have those tools available to us, so we can find that in different than the other two hundred and fifty such counties in Texas so it has to be looked at differently in those urban communities as it is those rural jurisdictions. All right Dr Marcia. Thank you so much and best of luck with this as Houston goes through this. Horrific
Pandemic projections suggest requiring masks could save 33,000 lives in U.S.
"There's a new projection from IHS. Emmy University of Washington which does a lot of the projections. They say that if people wear masks. Ninety five percent of the public, then thirty thousand lives in the United States could be saved just by October first. Does that suggest to you that every governor where there are? Outbreaks should be mandating masks in public. I do now that we have this guidance about how effective moss can be in the right conditions I think we need to be much clearer and telling people exactly what they need to do to protect themselves and their communities and this projection. Jake comes off the back of another projection. The estimate that seventy to ninety nine percent of Americans who died from covid nineteen that the Dow's were unethical. Unethical an unnecessary and could have been prevented if America had acted more aggressively early on and follow the steps of countries such as Germany and Singapore, so we missed the boat already. We've been late to the game. We have been getting poor communications Americans, and misguiding them I think now's the time to step that up and try to mitigate tens of thousands of Americans dying from covid nineteen. Only a little time but I want you to take a look at this video of a city councilman in Scottsdale Arizona Against Masks take a listen. I can't. I can't play. Obviously an incredibly insensitive reference to the death of George, Floyd, what we've also seen a judge in taxes assaulted after he issued a face covering order. What's your reaction? This is so such an awful exploitative co-opting of the icon brief statement, which is literally black Americans fighting for their right to live and not be killed by racist, and just speaks to what we've been talking about for the past few minutes that wearing a moth is a simple public health intervention. It protects other people. It need not be a political

Claims Data Point to Record Wave of Unemployment
"A new battle scar on the US economy from Corona virus. Three point two million Americans filed for unemployment for the first time just last week before the pandemic unemployment claims barely cracked two hundred thousand since the shutdown started mid March thirty three million people in the US or one in five American workers have filed for weekly unemployment benefits and sadly that's only a snapshot of the economic pain does not measure factors such as furloughs or pay cuts or layoffs. I WANNA BRING CNN business. Anchor Julia Chatterley Julia. We've had these staggering figures for almost two months. Now it might get repetitive. But we just can't overstate how unprecedented and disastrous. This is we can't. We are in uncharted waters in every way and the virus was just like a tidal wave. And you're absolutely right with not capturing how bad the damage was if you add in every worker. That's lost a job lost hours loss. Pay PROBABLY TALKING ABOUT. Hof of the entire workforce Jake. These have been heartbreaking damaging weeks. The White House predicts that tomorrow's unemployment numbers for April. We'll hit eighty percent. That's Great Depression level and it's obviously a far cry from where we were three months ago when the economy was pretty strong. We've gone from fifty losing unemployment to approaching eighteen year highs. This is the definition of a jobs. Depression the question. Now for policymakers is. How do you bring those jobs back and more importantly I think? How do you do it safely? I've spoken to two economists this week that say we will still have a ten percent unemployment rate at the end of this year.

"Hello. I'm Jake tapper in Washington where the state of our union is shaking our heads, the Virginia governor democrat Ralph north is ignoring calls for his resignation by his fellow Democrats from the top to the bottom of his party demands. That only intensified after the governor bizarrely changed his explanation about that racist photo from his nineteen Eighty-four medical school yearbook page now north insists he's not in the photo, which depict someone in black face next to a person dressed in Ku Klux Klan roads. I finally had a chance to sit down and look at the photograph in detail. It is definitely not me. I can tell by looking at it. That was a total contradiction of what north I'm headed midday just hours before when he said he was quote deeply sorry for the decision. I made to appear as I did in this photo unquote, north did reveal yesterday, his vivid memory of wearing black face on a different occasion that year at a dance contest where he dressed as Michael Jackson and colored his face with shoe polish marking the first time in American political history that a politician attempted to explain his innocence regarding one racist black face incidents by pointing to another one that he recalled participating in north is now asking for the opportunity to earn Virginians forgiveness.

"Hello. I'm Jake tapper in Washington where the state of our union is open at least for now. The US government is back up and running after five weeks that left hundreds of thousands of Americans without pay and agencies starved for resources on Friday. President Trump gave in housing he would sign a temporary spending Bill to reopen the federal government without any funding for the border wall. The move was a win for house speaker Nancy Pelosi who maintained she would not even discuss border security until the government reopen the president defended himself against critics from the right tweeting. The move was quote, not a concession, but on its face, the president retreated from his demand and the deal was essentially the same as what the Senate unanimously passed in December before the president forced the shutdown lawmakers now face a ticking clock, of course, they have three weeks to make a deal before the government runs out of funding. Again, President Trump has already said he will shut down the government or declare national emergency. If he does not get funding for his wall. Joining me now is Republican Senator Marco Rubio, Florida. He's also a member of the Senate intelligence committee. Senator I want to start with the shutdown. The president did not get any wall funding in this short term deal. SNP says the economy over the last thirty five days lost billions of dollars because of the shutdown. Was this whole strategy strategy by President Trump with Republicans in the house and Senate going along with was it a huge mistake. I don't think shutdowns are good leverage. It's a lesson. I've certainly learned in my time here there's been two shutdowns since the time I've been there and the aggressor and neither one was the winner. I think it's important to separate the tactics from the goal and the policy, and what the president wants is not unreasonable. It's a fraction of what Democrats voted for in the past. And more importantly, I think and these for me is achieving border security is the key that unlocks the door to doing other things on immigration that he's expressed a willingness to do the extension of TPS dealing with a DACA population. I believe he's willing to go even further. And do something reasonable with people who have been here a long time unlawfully, but are not criminals, but all of that is being held up by the inability to get agreement on border security, which the president campaigned on. So I hope people will separate the tactics from the policy because the policy is reasonable and solid. But as you know, the Democrats voting for more money in border security in the past especially in two thousand thirteen the immigration reform Bill that you helped push that was in exchange for a lot of other things having to do with undocumented immigrants having to do with a path to legal status. It wasn't just given out willy nilly. You see there's an opportunity here over the next three weeks to get something done. Where does that optimism come from? Well, first of all we shouldn't be trading border security for anything because it's something we're all for if you're for something. And I'm for something..

"Hello. I'm Jake tapper in Washington, where the state of our union is chaotic with fears that it's all about to get much worse. If President Trump was looking for a dramatic season. Finale. He's got it government shutdown. Top officials quitting in protest. Plummeting stock market and they're still a week of two thousand eighteen to go Saturday. President Trump announced that he and Milania will celebrate Christmas in Washington this year instead of it mar-a-lago, they will not be able to gaze upon the normally spectacularly adorned national Christmas tree. However, the government shutdown means it's lights out for the large evergreen near the White House as the government seems almost sure to remain partially closed through the holiday congress will not resume business until Thursday with no deal in sight, leaving federal workers facing uncertainty over the holidays, some three hundred eighty thousand employees, we'll stay home until the government reopens while about four hundred twenty thousand employees deemed essential will be forced to work without hey, a reminder, most federal employees do not live. Live in the Washington DC area. They live throughout the country Saturday lawmakers and members of the president's team appeared to remain at an impasse with no signs of a path Ford. Republican Senator leader Mitch McConnell announcing nothing will happen until the president and Democrats agree. President Trump is demanding five billion dollars for his border wall. And Senate Democrats say they will not give him the votes for it. This is the president seems to be even less restrained than normal after the sudden resignations of his Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Brett mcgurk atop diplomatic official in the fight against ISIS. Moves that have even some of the most loyal Republicans expressing misgivings and concern, I want to go straight to the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee Senator Bob corker, Republican of Tennessee Senator thanks so much for joining us. We appreciate it. Jay good to be with you during these festive times. That's right. Merry christmas. You were heavily involved in the negotiations. You help secure a deal requiring all the parties involved. Pelosi Ryan Schumer McConnell and President Trump to publicly agree before a vote to end the shutdown. I have to say I found it striking the part of this deal was that President Trump needs to publicly endorse it before there's any vote. Why? Well, look, Jake. This is a a purposely contrived fight over at the end of the day. Even no matter who wins our borders are still going to be insecure. I think you know, that back in two thousand thirteen John Hoven an crafted a border security amendment that passed with sixty nine votes in a Senate where Republicans were in the minority. I'm a junior Senator from Tennessee and sixty nine people voted for forty six billion dollars to secure our border. It was overly prescriptive and it was overkill, but our borders would've been secure not long ago. Just a few months ago, the president could have received twenty five billion dollars in border security, just by dealing with the dreamers, which by the way, most Republicans want to deal with the dreamers issue. So we had twenty five billion that could have been spent on border security now the government is. Shutdown over what all the way is going to be two billion dollars. This is a made up fight. So the president can look like he's fighting. But even if he wins our borders, you're going to be insecure in part of it is because of what we're spending the money on. We have all kinds of technology, as you know, that we can use to secure the borders. The Forty-six bay did include seven hundred miles of fencing which was important, but there's all kinds of technology that we use in Iraq and Afghanistan to secure our borders. And so it's not unlike going to the Pentagon and saying look we need to buy fighters, and we have stealth fighters and their supersonic, and they have precision guided missiles, but but no, let's let's use the Wright brothers. And so this is not just about the money. It's about what we're spending it on. So we could secure our borders. We could solve this problem. This is a made up fight. And I would just tell. Citizens across our country that turn this off, but focus on the significant things the fact that we just announced we're pulling out of Syria. I want to get to that. In a second thing that I wanna give. One second..

"State of the union. I'm Jake tapper Republicans in the Senate are poised to do something unusual this week break with President Trump over his Saudi Arabia policy. This comes as new insight into the scope of the Muller probe is putting more pressure on both the White House and on Republican lawmakers who have been supportive of the president. Joining me now is Republican Senator Marco Rubio, a Florida. He's a member of the Senate intelligence and foreign relations committee. Senator Rubio, thanks so much for joining us. I wanted to get want to get all those issues. I talked about in the in the open in a moment. But first I want to ask you about retiring chief of staff John Kelly speaker Ryan called him a quote force for order clarity. And good sense. If the last year was an example of order, clarity and good sense. Are you at all concerned about what happens next with a White House without John Kelly? Well, it depends where they put in as a replacement as I said, I'm a huge John Kelly fan. I've known him since this time. He he served in Florida in Miami. He was his last assignment before retiring from the military was running southern command and did a great job there. He did a great job at homeland security, and we had a great working relationship with him as the chief of staff. There's always turn over in that position. Obviously, it's every president has a at least a couple. And so obviously, it's a loss to see him go. And now we'll see who they put there's a replacement, and and we'll go from there. But hopefully, it'll be someone he's hard to replace. There's no doubt about it. But hopefully, it'll be someone just as qualified just strong that gets. It's good for our country to have someone like that in that post. Let's turn to new court filings this week from the southern district of New York. Here's what they wrote about former Trump lawyer in fixer, Michael, Colin, quote, while many Americans who desire to particular outcome to the two thousand sixteen election knocked on doors or toiled at phone banks coincide to influence the election from the shadows. He did so by orchestrating secret and ill. Illegal payments, unquote. Now, prosecutors say Michael Cohen made the payment quote in coordination with and at the direction of then candidate, Donald Trump. You were a candidate for president in two thousand sixteen running against Donald Trump. Does it bother you that they were breaking campaign laws allegedly in order to win the election? Well, not from that night about me. I mean, it will not happen. I was well thought of the race. It's about the country. It's about what our laws are in about the fact that no one should be above the law from the very beginning of all of this. I said what we deserve the truth. No one has beneath the law, meaning no one is not entitled to the protections of it. But also, no one is above it. So I would just say that we want to know everything that we will know everything that's happened here at some point Mr. Cohen has a version of it. Obviously, the those who are accused of potentially accused as part of it have another. We don't know what additional information of Justice department has to corroborate some of this. They don't necessarily have to put that in the in these filings because their sentencing filings, so my interest from the very beginning. And all of this is for all the information to be out there before the. American people. So that the court system can make traditional Justice decisions and the American people can make political decisions and congress as well. So I'm gonna wait for all of that to come forward. Obviously, this is relevant information. And and things that cannot and should not be ignored. If it is proven that the president directed an aide to commit felonies to influence the election..

"For instance, lots more documented in his new book called shade, our Jake tapper spoke to Sousa all about it and Pete Souza joins me now. Thanks so much for being here Pete. So you tackle some pretty serious subjects in here. I mean, it's fun, but there's some seriousness in here you posted this photo of President Obama meeting with young refugees in Malaysia that was right around the time of Trump's ban on immigration from several majority Muslim countries in this one. It's a response to a Trump tweet claiming President Obama did nothing after being told about Russian election interference this photo. You shared of President Obama seeming to be confronting Putin September two thousand sixteen and after President Trump brag that the mission was accomplished after strike in Syria. Are you posted? This photo cramps. Your most iconic photo of the president and his team in the situation room during the raid that ultimately led to Osama bin Laden's, death, and you wrote quote back when a mission was actually accomplish. What do you what do you because it's not just fun with shade? I mean, there's some serious things you're saying about the last president and the current one. What do you want people to take away from the book? I don't want. I don't want people to forget the first five hundred days of the Trump administration, which is what this represents. And all the craziness that happened. I'm also trying to correct some of his lies and falsehoods with photographic proof. Whether it'd be the inauguration day crowd, whether it be him saying that Obama did nothing about Russia's meddling. And here's the the meeting where Odom. Oh, confronted Putin. Yeah. You also touch on President Trump's use of Twitter, perhaps you would say misuse of Twitter after President Trump threatened Russia. On Twitter for the supportive series Assad. You posted this photo President Obama you wrote President Obama in two thousand thirteen as he waited for a phone call with one of our allies to discuss the situation in Syria. He certainly never sent out an impulsive tweet about a serious national security crisis when you were photographing serious moments like this, did you ever think that you'd be using them as an example of peers, how a president should actually believe not at all. I never would have expected. I would be doing this. If if John McCain or Mitt Romney had been president I wouldn't be doing this because they respected the office of the presidency. And that's what we don't see from this president. It's interesting you say that because I always thought of you because I would see you a lot back when you were not the White House photographer when you were just a regular photographer news media. And then when you're at the White House with Iraq. I always thought if you is fairly a-political, frankly, and I know that you were also with the former photographer for President Reagan. And you've really until the Trump administration never criticize anyone or said anything political in any way. So what is it about this moment in this president that is that it's changed? You. What's changed me is is what I said. I think he disrespects the office of the presidency, and he disrespects other people. He bullies people. He lies. He doesn't he called you guys. The enemy of the people. He doesn't believe our own intelligence agencies. He trashes his own attorney general and what he calls his Justice department. So it's just there's just too many things that is not normal for a president to be doing. You also included some lighthearted posts as as I said, this is a book that's mixed with seriousness and some fun. I mean, it is called shade this Halloween themed one this is a President Obama greeting Halloween trick or treaters this is hours after president. Trump tweeted witch-hunt in response to Robert Muller's investigation, you a different kind of witch hunt. So you're having some fun. I'm having some fun. And I think especially on Instagram. I'm trying to inject some humor, and I'm trying to be somewhat respectful to in the way that I criticize, and certainly I think it'd being more respectful, then he is on Twitter.

"Hello. I'm Jake tapper in Washington where the state of our union is utterly devastated. Eleven innocent people were brutally murdered Saturday. When an anti-semitic gunman opened fire inside, a Pittsburgh synagogue, turning a peaceful place of worship and hope into a crime scene of death and destruction. The gunman armed with a semi automatic assault weapon. And at least three handguns stormed the sanctuary shouting antisemitic slurs to police officers in two swat officers were wounded in the confrontation one FBI official called it, quote, the most horrific crime scene he had ever seen today. The alleged gunman is in custody and facing twenty nine federal charges, including hate crimes on Saturday. President Trump denouncing anti-semitism and called for the death penalty. This evil anti semitic attack is an assault on all of us. It's an assault on humanity. It will require all of us working together to extract the hateful poison of anti-semitism from our world the brutal slaughter in Pittsburgh ends. What has been a hate filled week in America, a male bomber terrorized former presidents and others whom President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN and a shooter targeted and murdered to African Americans in Kentucky after trying and failing to get into a predominantly black church. All of this in today's before what has been described as likely the deadliest attack on Jews in the history of the United States. Joining me now is the mayor of Pittsburgh Bill Peduto, mayor doodo, thanks so much for joining us. And I'm so sorry that it's under these circumstances that we're talking. Thank you. We saw so many of your city's residents coming together for that very moving vigil last night. I know you personally knew some of the victims. How is Pittsburgh copen? Our hearts broken. We are a small city what affects one community affects all of us. And right now, I would say that there's a shock that is over the city. But you know, Pittsburgh's a strong city. We are a people that have a strong resilience, and we will get through this. I know the investigation into the shooter's moving forward his motive seems obvious from his social media posts. But what if you learned from law enforcement about why you know, as they try to figure out why this happened. Well, the investigation is obviously continuing right now the social media posts were discovered early while the situation was still ongoing. It seems that the motive is very clear that he had sought out this one synagogue because of activities that they had done working with refugees and immigrants and that his message of hey was against our Jewish community. We've learned a lot from the shooter's social media posts, which are just vile, anti semitism and anti immigrant sentiment worth authorities aware of any of these posts prior to this horror. And and do you think that authorities should have been aware of them or made aware of them by people at the social media companies? Absolutely not. There was no information on this actor there was nothing to create a red flag or an alert to something that would be any type of illegal activity. Let alone something this horrific. President Trump spoke out and condemned anti-semitism after the attack he says he's heading to Pittsburgh were you satisfied with the president's response to this massacre. Well, right now, our concern is really with the victims families and with those that had been injured, including our own police officers, the president's assistance in having federal officials coming to Pittsburgh in having F B I officials from around the country coming here is really what we've been concentrating on. In addition to the eleven killed, obviously several individuals were very seriously wounded, including police officers. How are they doing? Was able to visit with one of the officers yesterday. I'll be visiting with two of the other officers this morning with the officer that I visited his spirits were high. He was one of the two swat officers who were wounded in the gunfire. He actually had his artery severed in could've been much much worse. If it weren't for his partner in placing attorney kit on him at that moment, a rightful in three handguns recovered from the scene of the shooting. Do we know anything about these these firearms where they purchased legally? Is there anything in this in the shooter's background that should have prevented him from being able to purchase them? Yeah. Right now, there's a combined effort on law enforcement at local state and federal level part of that investigation is on.

The two candidates have never met each other.

He's the author of a new book called them why we hate each other and how to heal a Senator SAS, thanks for joining us. Your book deals with why the country is so divided right now. I was reading it while this happened. I want you to take a listen to what President Trump had to say recent rally, and he mentioned that Montana, congressman. Ultimately pleaded guilty to physically assaulting a journalist whose prime was he tried to ask him a question about healthcare. Take a listen. Guys that can do a body slam. He's Mike. And I said, oh, this is terrible. He's gonna lose the election. Then I said, well, wait a minute. I know Montana pretty well. I think it might help him. Senator you write quite compelling in your book about the the need for all of us in America to see the humanity of each other. And I have to say, I've been surprised at how quiet Republicans have been about the president of the United States, joking about criminal assault on a reporter. What was your reaction to that? I gotta admit, I don't follow the rallies closely, but you know, I believe that the first amendment is the beating heart of the American experiment. So we need to have a president who celebrates the first amendment and not pretends that beaten up a reporter is okay, but I think what you hear from a lot of Nebraska who also, I think, too now, most of the rallies is sort of a short term long term thing going on, and people feel like the president's rhetoric is kind of short term playful. I don't think it's okay, but I do think most people tune most of it out. I think what we need to be having a conversation about is the long term of how does the next generation understand the American experiment. Because right now we don't have much shared sense of what it is. But it's not playful to joke about assault. Is it. No, the was convicted of a crime and the first amendment free speech, press religion, assembly, protests the right of redress of grievances. These are things we believe our rights that three hundred and twenty million Americans have not just government gives us these rights, but because there are rights by nature, the founders would have said and governments are shared project to secure them. So we need a president and all other elected officials to be stewarding and shepherding are shared understanding of that to the next generation. So no, it's not okay. But I do think that it's sort of baked into the president, stock price that sort of this amoral Listrik take he has on it. He's just what most people think the president's gonna do. And most people were, I live sort of ignore most of it something. It's funny, some are really anxious about it, but most people just think, well, that's kind of how the president talks. We need to do better than that. But I also think there's, there's a danger in pretending each new rally is immediate urgent. I wish she did it differently. Obviously.

"Then i have bad news for you because it's only going to get colder and not just for dc but so many areas right now it feels like minus two in minneapolis two in buffalo and minus eight in boston but we have another wave coming in so you'll see those temperatures remain cold in fact if you wake up tomorrow in boston it's going to feel like minus nineteen minus eight on saturday chicago the temperatures are only going to get colder as we go through the week and the reason for that is the next wave of cold air it's going to push back down into the region the thing is it's also going to dip pretty far south in fact places like dallas may not even reach the freezing mark on monday atlanta may not even reach 35 dan ah on monday so again this is going to be a pretty widespread area of cold air and this bitter cold isn't just uncomfortable it's dangerous for a lot of people what should people do to avoid risk rates so the best thing i can say especially for the folks who have a new year's eve celebrations outside again we talk about the temperatures potentially in new york about eleven at midnight with the feels like temperature in the negative numbers layers that's the best advice i can give you layers upon layers upon layers because this is likely going to be the coldest one they've had since 1962 and the thing you have to understand is when you are outside your body naturally has a layer of heat on the outside of it expands a couple of temperatures but when that wind comes indiana that takes away that layer of heat so the more layers you can put on the better it will be for you if you are outside allison chinchar thank you so much better and earn andy in anderson them me that's all i can say that's it for the lead i'm dana bash in for jake tapper turn overture briana killer in for wolf blitzer in the situation room.
