tv   Erin Burnett Out Front  CNN  April 15, 2019 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
are here. it's completely extraordinary. i mean just a sea of red. this is the newest picture we have. i know you can't see it, but our viewers here can. the entire structure just >> powerful reporting. completely just red with the heat of the flames. thank you so much for the excellent, excellent work. >> yeah, we were probably a good erin burnett out front starts right now. 500 meters from notre dame, but out front next, the breaking you could see different colors of the flames. news. catastrophe, notre dame in ruin the entire steeple and the tonight as a massive fire ruins surrounding scaffolding where they'd been doing work was burning red hot. the world treasure. and at various times the color and house committee issuing of the smoke would change from subpoenas for deutsche bank, the bright orange to yellow tinged bank that loaned trump billions when no one else would lend him with green. we thought that was probably the money. and bernie sanders and trump stained glass perhaps inside the church burning or something supporters where will it work? let's go out front. else, but it was quite clear out front tonight the even from quite a difference breaking news. french prosecutors launching an that the fire was quite hot. investigation into the massive fire at notre dame cathedral. and it appeared to be quite a the fire burning for more than challenge to get water up there. six hours. there were firefighters we notre dame, of course, one of noticed on the sides of the the most well-known and visited steeple, but the fire was quite landmarks in the world. and today the cathedral's spire large compared to the amount of
4:01 pm
water they had tried to cruise. collapsed. >> and you could see the firefighters and the presence of that everywhere around the the world watching these terrible moments. facade, as far as you could see hundreds of firefighters it? >> yeah, we were on the bridge battling the flames. for a while right next to the but there was almost nothing they could do. and now the extent of the damage is just starting to become clear. just take a look at this image. river. and we could see from our vantage point a few firefighters it's an unbelievable thing to quite high up on the church see. that is the fire raging blaze, trying to put out the flames. >> all right, well, jason, thank you very much. parisians gathering through the i appreciate your taking the night to wait and on this time and sharing what you saw with us. i want to go now to our senior holiest week for catholics to political commentator for bfm pray and sing, the iconic cathedral is 850 years old. and yet the fire consumed the tv, and an architecture holy structure in mere hours. the president of france, historian. and i appreciate both of you emmanuel macron moments ago being with me. terry, you are there on the spoke live outside the blaze. ground and obviously you have been -- you live in paris, reporting from paris for a long >> translator: a place where we have lived through all our great time. and i know you say you have never seen paris like this
4:02 pm
moments, wars, liberations. before. >> no, i have not. it is the epicenter of our life. i have never seen my hometown >> joining us now live from looking and feeling what it looks like and feels like paris our nick robertson. we're just getting these images in. that image from the air, it almost looks like the flame looks like lava. tonight. because of what has been lost i mean, what is the latest you are learning ability the cause and what's priceless and cannot be recovered. of the fire? there is concern because the fire is still there, and we're >> reporter: what we know so far being told it may be hours and perhaps days before it's is that there was construction work going on. completely put out and we can the belief at the moment by the assess the damage, the complete chief prosecutor is this was not damage. but there's also an started maliciously rather extraordinary sense of unity and involuntarily. there's an indication it may have started on the upper floors a communion. possibly in an attic. and that makes you realize paris what triggered it isn't clear. is much more than a church and what is very clear is that it monument to religion. spread very quickly engulfing and doing all the damage that we've seen so far. >> an important point to make so from a french perspective, from a prosecutor's perspective obviously. you know, this holy week for christians and catholics and it at this very early stage he is not expecting foul play. is so much more than that. the spire fell. an involuntary start to the fire two thirds of the roof has been
4:03 pm
is the way they're describing it destroyed, and we understand for right now, erin. that the medieval roof is gone. >> and obviously we can hear we're talking about a structure people around you gathered as we of 850 years old. are at 2:00 in the morning. you know this building so well. i want to go now on the phone to tell me what has been lost. jason henman who was there at >> well, i mean it's notre dame earlier this evening. he was on vacation, was unfathomable what has been lost. it's terrible the tragedy, the obviously going to see the level of destruction. cathedral. jason, i wanted to show everyone the images that we see 13th a video you took of the spire as it fell. you were at the cathedral today for about an hour and of course century architecture that's been you saw that horrific moment. burned. also the level of history of tell us what you saw. >> hi, erin, thanks. architecture, this building, you we had a beautiful day in paris know, represents a key moment in today. we were at the botanical gardens the history of architecture. right around 6:00 or 7:00 and we and also it's the first building that reaches over 100 feet high noticed some smoke in the air and actually planned to leave in this building style, so it is the area, got in the car and found all the roads were really a key monument. and my home is that this is the blocked. so eventually we got out. and it was clear the city had internal structure will resist, just stopped. you know, the pressure and the we joined a group of several weight of the beams of the
4:04 pm
hundred parisians on the bridge huge -- you know, the huge beams we saw there. everything is burning and the overlooking the cathedral and watched for 20 or 30 minutes structure can be provided. while it burned. >> jason, how did people react >> and that of course is the big question as they're still when that spire fell? fighting this fire. and one can only imagine the heat of the stone. >> everyone just oohed and ahed and again that sea of red we saw. terry, i'll never forget and cried. several people covered their covering the terrorist attacks in paris and standing outside mouth. they couldn't believe what they were seeing. >> we've seen parisians kneeling notre dame for that moment of silence. it was one of the most moving and singing. moments i've ever experienced. we could just hear them moments the city turned there, the world ago as our reporter nick turned there in that moment of fear and horror and people still robertson is outside that gathered together and gathered right in front of notre dame. cathedral in that main square in front of the facade. and now no one knows what is how did it feel to see something next. like this? no one knows what happens here. >> it's pretty remarkable. what are you hearing, terry, about what caused the fire at we wandered the streets for maybe 20 or 30 minutes. this time? >> well, we don't know for sure many pathways were blocked. what caused the fire. and we stumbled on quite a crowd as nick told earlier there's been a formal investigation just across from notre dame. that's been opened for court and we heard some singing.
4:05 pm
it appeared to be near a church involuntary destruction caused so we thought it was a choir, by fire. but as we moved forward to the so the assumption at this stage is that it was an accident crowd we stumbled on a group of basically. young parisians all on their but no one knows exactly what caused the accident, but there knees praying and singing. will be a lot of discussion as it was quite remarkable. to whether the construction that >> when you were there and saw was being conducted was those flames, i mean tell us completely safe and was completely, you know, operated as it should have been. more about how terrifying. i just wanted to get back to the point of what i made earlier about the structure. the paris fire department officials now tell us that the structure is safe and will survive, and that the building will stand, and that is very important. because of course as of two hours ago there was a real question as to whether the whole thing would collapse or not. as it stands now the fire department is telling us the building would stand and that the structure and the two towers will survive. >> all right, we have some pictures. these are just the first ones i believe we're getting in this moment that anyone has seen from
4:06 pm
inside. stefaan, let me just show you this. these are the first images so i can only describe what we're seeing, what you're seeing. that pointed moment of what appears to be the cross. you obviously know about so much in here, the inside. and now you're looking at this image with me for the first time. what do you see? >> i see is the main alter overlooking the choir at the east end of the building. and it's the main alter. clearly there's a lot of damage there. but one must understand is that in such a building every piece of stone that is there, every alter piece that is there, every piece of sculpture is a very important piece of art, also very important artwork that is there. so it's -- you know, it's impossible to measure the amount of -- >> right, even if a part of the
4:07 pm
structure itself is -- you have to -- so much is gone. there's no way to get around that. >> it's a mudsseum. there's a statue from the 14th century. it's invaluable what can be destroyed there. what i heard is that, you know, that apparently most of the pieces of artwork or works of art have been, you know, salvaged from the fire. but again what i want to underscore is that everything, you know, every element of the structure, for example, the bases of the columns there, everything is carved, everything is sculpted. these are all unique -- one by one they're all unique pieces. there's stained glass and always the windows from the north and south are invaluable. >> and those are obviously gone.
4:08 pm
thank you both of you. we have been showing the images from inside notre dame. so firefighters are still there fighting the blaze, and you've got this heat throughout the structure. what they are up against at this hour. and breaking news, house committees issuing a subpoena to deutsche bank. and deutsche bank of course is not just a bank here. this is the bank, the lender that lended to donald trump when nobody else would. and bernie sanders finally releasing his taxes. can he keep slamming millionaires on the campaign trail now that he formally is one? if you love them enough to crawl into a playplace to get them to come down, then surely you'll check
4:09 pm
to make sure they're in the right car seat. (driver) relax, it's just a bug. that's not a bug, that's not a bug! (burke) hit and drone. seen it, covered it. we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two. ♪ we are farmers. bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum ♪

4:11 pm
even those that cause stomach bugs. one more way you've got what it takes to protect. this is a very difficult job. failure is not an option.a. more than half of employees across the country bring financial stress to work. if you're stressed out financially at home, you're going to be too worried to be able to do a good job. i want to be able to offer all of the benefits that keep them satisfied. it is the people that is really the only asset that you have.
4:12 pm
put your employees on a path to financial wellness with prudential. bring your challenges. breaking news. the notre dame's medieval roof structure has been lost. just a part of the horrific devastation from the blaze that's been ravagic the cathedral. i want to show you again the first picture we have from inside the cathedral. there it is, and obviously that cathedral is not something anyone will be able to go into for a long time. you can still see that heat and fire there at the top of the arches. of course it's impossible to know the full extent of the damage right now. that's the bottom line. tom foreman is out front to give us a sense of how big the fire is. the best you can tell us right now, tom, you have hundreds of firefighters who are working under incredibly difficult circumstances, very dangerous circumstances. >> reporter: yeah, and this wasn't an easy fire to get to
4:13 pm
either, erin. those pictures were just stunning you were showing a minute ago. there are nine different bridges that leads there, it's an island. and they had to get through in rush hour traffic to try and reach the cathedral. and bear in mind the height was an issue, too. we believe it started somewhere around the base of the spire in the middle and this tip right up there, that's a football field above the ground. so you get a sense of how high they were having to work. so what was underneath all of this as it spread to the entire roof? well we know underneath as your previous guest noted extraordinary treasures, a beautiful soaring open space. there were in certain areas here like the area called the choir, really really intricate and beautiful carvings. there happen also a lot of things to draw people's attention here, the organ. it's older than that.
4:14 pm
it has more than 8,000 pipes, five key boards. we don't really know the fate of the organ at this point, one of the most famous musical instruments in the world. and of course the rose windows just mentioned a moment ago. about 13 million tourists a year come and this is one of the main things that draws them, these extraordinary pieces of stained glass, some of the best you'll find anywhere on the planet. >> and that's just some of the history inside that building of course the president of the france just said is the heart and soul of france. obviously this is catholic cathedral, it's a religious building. but it is much, much more than that. >> oh, yeah. there's a reason this is world heritage site. remember this is where napoleon became an emperor. this is where joan of ark started on her path to becoming a sapt. this is where so many giant world events, world wars swirled around. and there are paintings and drawings and architectural plans
4:15 pm
all stored here. and you may have heard people talk about the crown of thorns. this is a true relic people believe was the crown worn by christ during his crucifixion. imagine the importance of this relic during this easter season. and there's still some positive news as your guest just mentioned. maybe things are being saved here. we know more than a dozen priceless statues were removed as part of this renovation just last week, erin. so we have to hope have a lot more good news like that. >> all right, tom foreman, thank you very mup. i want to go now to the former battalion chief for the new york fire department. and john, i appreciate your time. you've got over six hours so far of the fire. and obviously you have parts as you can see from those first internal pictures from whatever the structure may be in some of those but completely red with the heat. what makes it so difficult to put out a fire like this one?
4:16 pm
>> well, the age of the building, construction, the components that's it's made from mostly noncom bustable surrounding exterior, that's all remaining. and you saw how quickly the fire spread. that's what's left and probably going to burn for a while until it either extinguishes itself or the water does. >> you're pointing out there's so much wood in there, but you have all of this stone and obviously 850-year-old structure, you know, bits and pieces constructed over hundreds of years. but you're talking about an incredible amount of stone. and stone that we don't, i would imagine, fully know exactly how secure and insecure it is given the age of the building. >> well, before the fire, of course, it was probably very
4:17 pm
secure. probably almost as secure when it was built in whatever chronlogicchro chronlogical order it came. we do have some structural damage. that's going to come after the fire is extinguished. from what i've seen looking at the internet, it looks like the exterior structure will remain intact. there could be localized collapses inward or outward depending upon how the heat has affected that. but it look like most of it will stand. and then of course whoever is tech logically capable of determining what's needed to make sure it's structural sound to rebuild will have to do that. >> during oall of this today president trump tweeted so horrible to watch the massive fire at notre dame cathedral in paris. perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. must act quickly.
4:18 pm
obviously the french civil defense agency was angry enough to respond in english. well, they tweeted in english this after that. hundreds of firemen of the paris fire brigade are doing everything they can to bring the fire under control. all means are being used except water bombing which could lead to collapse of the cathedral. but they obviously wanted to dismiss what he said suggesting this fire and flying water tankers. why would that not have work snd. >> i think one of the reasons they said, you may have a load that hits the building, the water has, you know, weight and can come down with significant force and cause a collapse that's unintended. it's not the traditional way in which we would fight a fire like this. that's mostly forest fires. while the damage that may occur is not critical to trying to keep the structure as much intact as possible. >> thank you very muff.
4:19 pm
john, thanks for your time. and next the mueller report is about to be released trump's allies are promising a robust rebuttal. well, why? what happened to this? >> i've been totally exonerated. no collusion, no obstruction. >> you wouldn't need a rebuttal then, right? and bernie sanders finy releasing his tax returns, and guess what? he's a millionaire. so do attacks like this ring hollow or not? >> billionaires or millionaires have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into the political process supporting republican candidates and today is pay back time for them. ou know, weeds are lowdown little scoundrels. draw the line with roundup. the sure shot wand extends with a protective shield to target weeds precisely and kill them right down to the root. roundup brand. trusted for over 40 years. each day justin at work... walk. and after work. he does it all with dr. scholl's. only dr. scholl's has massaging gel insoles

4:23 pm
breaking news, congressional investigators issuing a subpoena to a bank that's loaned trump billions of dollars when no one else would. deutsche bank received the subpoena this afternoon and it came from the house intelligence and financial services committees. they want information specifically about loans to trump and the trump organization to, you know, separate but crucial parts of the same thing in a sense. deutsche bank currently has current millions in loans to the trump organization right now. the attorney general bill barr missing his own target for the report's release. the report will be turned over to congress and the public nine d days after the attorney general said this. >> from my standpoint by within a week i will be in a position
4:24 pm
to release the report to the public, and then i will engage with the chairman of both judiciary committees about that report, about any further requests that they have. >> the attorney general saying he was color coating his redactions providing an explanation and reasons for each one. the president by the way tweeting in part today mueller and the a.g. based on mueller findings and great intelligence have already ruled no collusion, no obstruction. now, that's the line the president has repeated ad nauseam over the last few weeks the barr summary came out. >> so there's no collusion, no obstruction, no nothing. >> i've been totally exonerated. no collusion, no obstruction. there was no collusion, and there was no obstruction. and we never did anything wrong. >> okay, as we've told you, though, we don't yet know that to be true because as far as we know according to the
4:25 pm
president's own attorney general the president did indicated the president may have done something wrong. if the president is so sure that there's nothing there, then why is his team writing a rebuttal report? if there's no collusion or obstruction, then you're done here. apparently not. abbey philip is out front at the white house. what is the white house thinking of the mueller report, obviously we understand rudy giuliani is busy on this rebuttal. >> reporter: well, i think at the moment they don't know what they don't know. they're aware this report is quite lengthy, that it might contain a lot of things unflattering to the president, and they're trying to figure out how to go on this fine line between sort of being confident that the president has been exonerated and being cautious that there could be things in there that might damage him. the president's lawyers want to know just like we do why didn't robert mueller come up with a finding when it came to the
4:26 pm
issue of obstruction. that's one of the big unanswered questions in this report that will hopefully be answered on thursday once we all see it. but in the meantime they're trying to develop a strategy for how they would rollout their response to it. emt flood who's the white house lawyer in charge of all of this is going to be reading the report and then briefing the president on what the report's findings are. and then they're going to go with their public view of how they think this report has gone for the president. they've been working on this lengthy rebuttal which they're now adjusting based on what little they do know about what's in the mueller report. so they're reframing that rebuttal and planning on releasing that at some point after the report comes out. but there's some open questions now why they didn't weigh in on executive privilege, and we're hearing from sources they were aware what it would look like if they started meddling in this report. they're waiting just like the rest of us to see what's in the
4:27 pm
report, erin. >> all right, abby, thank you. and now let's go to the vice chair of the house judiciary committee. i appreciate your time, congresswoman. obviously you're a lawyer. are you okay with the attorney general missing his own deadline for the release of the report. he said within a week and obviously it's going to be a little bit beyond that. and it seems perhaps to spend more time on the redaction process. >> right, well, that's the basic problem we have here is he's still redacting the report. we've asked for the entire report and all the supporting documentation. >> so it's going to be a full month almost -- almost a full month since mueller handed the report over to barr, and then that summary came out, whatever word they want to use. it came out and basically stood as the only thing in the public record for weeks. do you believe the redactions took this long, or has this been delayed to harden public opinion? >> well, it certainly has hardened public opinion. we've seen those polling numbers
4:28 pm
already. but it really, really is troubling that here we are a month after the report was concluded and delivered to the attorney general and we're still dealing the cliff notes version. >> cliff notes version is another good word to use. are you okay with other redactions in the report or do you accept there needs to be some? >> i understand there may need to be some redactions in terms of releasing the full report and all the underlying documents to the public if it's going to compromise national security and so on. >> in terms of the deutsche bank news obviously we're just getting word obviously of these subpoenas, do you believe there's anything from deutsche bank obviously was lending to the president and his companies when no one else would during that time. do you think there's anything in there that mueller did not see or anything new? >> you know, i don't really know
4:29 pm
that. the subpoenas that have been issued there have not come from judiciary, which is the committee i sit on. but certainly we've read reporting from cnn and elsewhere that indicates that there was quite a bit of information there, and that mueller had sought that information. >> right, obviously we'll see whether he thought it was in his purview, we just don't know. we don't know what mueller knew or didn't know, and we'll see what we find out later this week on that. >> deputy attorney general rosenstein defending barr to "the wall street journal." and his quote is he's being as forthcoming as he can. so this notion he's trying to mislead people i think is just completely bizarre. now rosenstein oversaw the mueller report, was the one who oversaw bob mueller's investigation. do you think rosenstein would defend barr in this way so specifically and so clearly if he didn't think he had real reason to do so? >> you know, it's hard to tell what's going on. i mean, what we do know is the
4:30 pm
american taxpayers paid for this report. they should see it. congress needs the report to exercise its oversight duties, so we just need to see the report. until then unfortunately we're all stuck speculating about what's in the report and what evidence was actually disclosed. >> all right, congresswoman scanlen, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. and next, bernie sanders going big time for trump supporters. will it work? and the candidate getting a lot of attention lately after being compare today another famous democrat. >> i recognize the audacity of doing this. >> i recognize that there is a certain presumption, a certain audacity.

4:34 pm
the most personal technology, is technology with the power to change your life. life. to the fullest. breaking news. 2020 presidential candidate bernie sanders has released his tax returns. bernie sanders is a millionaire. over the past three years bernie sanders made over $3 million. which makes him one of the wealthy people he himself targets on the campaign trail. >> we are going to ask the millionaires and billionaires of this country to start paying their fair share. bleian airs and millionaires have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into the political process supporting republican candidates and today is pay back time for them.
4:35 pm
>> okay, sanders tonight, though, insists he is not out to make enemies out of the rich. >> stop vilifying to say that people have a whole lot of money, in some cases billions of dollars of wealth. they should pay their fair share of taxes. >> member of president trump's 2020 re-elected advisory co council. look, as i have been saying sanders is so lucky to live in a capitalist society because he wrote a book about being a socialist and people bought it, and so he got to make all this money. and he's now made a few million dollars over the past few years because of his book. what do you make of the numbers? obviously the past year his numbers fell, a half million dollars, but all in he's a millionaire? >> i actually don't see too much of a chrontrudiction between being a millionaire and raising against a class of producing
4:36 pm
millionaires. he's had two years to come up with these so now i'm a millionaire message and his message is capitalist. he's literally saying i made a product the market wanted and i got rich off of it and you can do do that too. he could talk about how the system is rigged for people like him, white male privileged with a platform and he would want to make sure the system works for everybody. but instead he's defensive, if you were to right a book. >> he was just asked why he did not pay -- because this whole thing about fair share. so he was asked about now he's a millionaire and his fair share, and let me play the exchange. >> you're marshal tax rate was 26% of because of president trump's tax cuts. so why not say, you know, i'm leading this revolution, i'm not going to take those?
4:37 pm
>> i am -- i pay the taxes that i know, and by the way why don't you get donald trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes. >> okay, the other guy is doing it so i'm doing it too is not a good answer. i think we can all agree that is not a good answer. by the way, i don't know how millionaires make 26%. he's got a good accountant. what do you make of this response? >> first of all, i was shocked he actually combed his hair, which was great -- >> okay, that was an unnecessary -- >> no, look, here's what he needs to do and at the university of vermont. they need to teach a course and bernie can be professor bernie again and talk about the virtues of the free market which has collapsed everywhere. socialism destroys wealth, destroys freedoms. a perfect example, he worked hard. i don't envy bernie sandersmi.
4:38 pm
i'm proud, i'm happy for him he made $2 million on a book sale. but here's what i would suggest with that $2 million, here's what he should do because in vermont they pay the highest monthly premiums for health insurance. he could by the free health insurance for 350 people in vermont with that $2 million. >> that's the thing. he scoffs i pay the taxes i owe. by the way, that's interest rule. the problem is when you're bernie sanders and you rail against people paying their fair share and you're not donating money to the irs, you are a hypocrite. >> again, there's no inherent hippockraes in saying i live in this socialist system, but when he spent the weekend attacking the liberal outlet for correctly citing he has changed in his speeches railing against millionaires and billionaires to railing against multi-millionaires and
4:39 pm
billionaires, the defensiveness just shows -- it really undermines the integrity of his m message and the integrity of his message is what bernie sanders has. >> donald trump says that and is completely unashamed. i pay what i owe and why would i pay a dollar more? here are bernie sanders and donald trump talking about their books. >> -- number three new york best-seller translated in five or six languages. >> i wrote what i think is the number one best selling book of all-time. >> it is funny. >> well, look -- >> why are these guys so alike? neither one of you like that question. they're both speechless. >> i do. there is no chance you could have a woman candidate pull off anything like what they're
4:40 pm
doing, and i think that's an important distinction to make. the idea that elizabeth warren could somehow sit there and say you become a ten year harvard professor, you could get rich, too. she would be rightly vilified for being completely tone-deaf. i do want to take the moment to say trying to imagine the defensiveness coming out of one of them when questioned about how they made their wealth is just completely inconceivable. >> bernie has been going through all these states that just barely voted for trump. will some of the voters who voted for trump and voted for obama before now look at bernie sanders and say, hey, i like this. i like this guy who can work and succeed. >> i would say the average working class american says i work hard, i want to keep more of my own money, i don't want you -- because now bernie has it, he's coming for your money. they want to keep their money. they want to be in the 1%. who doesn't? i do.
4:41 pm
i certainly want to be. i think most americans say -- >> which gets back to the rigged system and why people aren't. >> no, not rigged. you work hard. he had an idea and sold books. >> bernie sanders when push comes to shove wants to keep his money, too. and out front next, pete buttigieg is his rise in the polls stealing another democrat's thunder. and jeanne moos on notre dame. a treasure on the movie screen as well. the sugar in your family's diet, coke, dr pepper and pepsi hear you. we're working together to do just that. bringing you more great tasting beverages with less sugar or no sugar at all. smaller portion sizes, clear calorie labels and reminders to think balance. because we know mom wants what's best. more beverage choices, smaller portions, less sugar.
4:42 pm it's kind of unfair that safe drivers have to pay as much for insurance... as not safe drivers! ah! that was a stunt driver. that's why esurance has this drivesense® app. the safer you drive, the more you save. don't worry, i'm not using my phone and talking to a camera while driving... i'm being towed. by the way, i'm actually a safe driver. i'm just pretending to be a not safe driver. cool. bye dennis quaid! when insurance is affordable, it's surprisingly painless. i felt i couldn't be at my best wifor my family. c, in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured and left those doubts behind. i faced reminders of my hep c every day. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured. even hanging with friends i worried about my hep c. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured. mavyret is the only 8-week cure for all common types of hep c.
4:43 pm
before starting mavyret your doctor will test if you've had hepatitis b which may flare up and cause serious liver problems during and after treatment. tell your doctor if you've had hepatitis b, a liver or kidney transplant, other liver problems, hiv-1, or other medical conditions, and all medicines you take including herbal supplements. don't take mavyret with atazanavir or rifampin, or if you've had certain liver problems. common side effects include headache and tiredness. with hep c behind me, i feel free... ...fearless... ...and there's no looking back, because i am cured. talk to your doctor about mavyret. you wouldn't accept from any one else. why accept it from your allergy pills? flonase relieves your worst symptoms including nasal congestion, which most pills don't. flonase helps block 6 key inflammatory substances. most pills only block one. flonase.

criticisms being raised against his candidacy. >> i think the premise of the question that i'm showing up as a blank slate after so many years of public service, i think more than any other candidate who's running for the presidency right now, i just can't accept the premise. but yes, we continue to learn. >> now, o'rourke is heading to virginia, finishing out a southern swing. he said he would be thrilled if buttigieg made it to the white house, but he's campaigning for the spot as well. buttigieg may be the man of the moment, that could be true. but the moment is the key part there. of course some ups and downs are fleeting. the man could be fleeting as well. don't forget, there are five women seeking the nomination as well. >> that's right. there's a lot of moments between now and election day. you could have good ones and bad ones end up on top. who knows. next when there are no words to describe what we have been seeing.
