tv CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin CNN December 30, 2020 11:00am-12:00pm PST
senator to protest the electoral college results in congress next week. first, another day of brutal pandemic headlines. the uk green lights another vaccine, while the u.s. is stuck in neutral. the president blames states for botching the job. operation warp speed's top adviser says, yes, they need to do better speeding the pace of vaccines is the critical task of 2021. the u.s. ends 2020 by breaking pandemic records of the worst kind. >> 3,700 people dying yesterday. that number could easily go up to 5,000 to 7,000 a day if we're not careful. >> the number of new cases is back up, and a man in colorado
tested positive for a new variant of covid-19. stephanie, let me start with you there in colorado, the confirmed case of this covid variant, they're now watching this potential second case. we have learned both men were members of the national guard. what else do you know? >> reporter: so this is what's interesting. it explains why they're both not in the counting now. both men were deployed to work here at this assisted living facility, because there had been an outbreak of the coronavirus here. so they were short staffed, they needed more hands on deck. that's why both these men were here. one is confirmed, the other is not confirmed yet, but they did say six of the colorado national guard that were deployed here, these two came back testing positive, one confirmed for sure. they're now both in separate counties in colorado, isolating and recovering, but obviously what they are looking to do is
flag any other case that is come out that look like they may have the sequencing of this genome and be able to tell whether or not they were infected. however, looking at what they have seen so far, they don't look like they have spread. that's not a definitive answer there, but they did say the state came through and tested the residents, and the state would be here testing the people that work here as well. all of that very important for contact tracing and finding out where the virus came from in the first place. >> as they're working on that in colorado, kristin, to you in washington, we talked about this the last couple days, first roll-out, it was like 100 million promise, then 40, then 20, now just above 2. why has it gone so slowly? >> reporter: we just had a briefing and they addressed this point-blank, essentially that
there's a big learning curve when it comes to a national root jowl, tick what areally one like the pfizer vaccine, or moderna, which had so many intricacies about transporting. they did acknowledge for the first time that i've heard that this is not where they hoped to be. they said they really knew the numbers as they stood right now, remember 11 million doses distributed, was nowhere they hoped to be at the time. general perna said he was going to address that lag time. this is something we have discussed. this is what senior administration officials have been calling me about for days, talking about how the 2.1 million number is don't accurate. they just believe it's a delay in states reporting to the cdc. perna said he would directly address this and try to make
sure it's tighter as we move forward. the cdc is in the middle of a briefing right now and they possibly will be updating their vaccine website, the dashboard we've been watching over and over again, but we'll have to wait and see how that goes. >> thank you both. i want to jump to politics. a public service announcement -- there's no evidence of election fraud. there is nothing to suggest that joe biden is not the president-elect. any assertion otherwise is a fantasy or placate a president who is unable to come to grips with his loss. now they have a republican accomplice by the name of senator josh hawley. cnn's congressional correspondent phil mattingly is live on the hill. phil, why is senator hawley -- why is he doing this? >> reporter: let me start with a cup the points. first, joe biden is the president-elect of the united states. the electors versus certified.
by the time congress is done with its role, joe biden will still be the president-elect, and will be inaugurated january 20th. why josh hawley, senator from missouri, is joining with republicans deciding to object to the certification matters, is because house members can't object on their own. they need to pair it up with a senator, so a senator, in this case josh hawley saying he will join house members triggers actual. why he's doing this, according to his statement is twofold. he says he has problems with how some states changed their voting rules, and he notes pennsylvania specifically. and he said that was against state law. this has been litigated ad nauseam over the last several weeks, and the trump campaign and republicans have lost every single one of those cases. the second issue that was
raised, he thinking technology companies censored certain content to favor joe biden. what hawley says is he's not doing this to overturn the election not to make president trump president again, but instead to raise the awareness of these issues, and he cites a democratic precedent. in 2005 a group of democrats in the house did the same thing on ohio issues as well. however, this will make january 6th a long process. it would not change the end result, but it's clear that josh hawley has joined house republicans and it's likely there will be other senators as well. congresswoman-elect mace welcome, and congratulations on your win. i have a couple questions on politics. joe biden, you know, definitely won the election, so are you comfortable with what senator hawley is doing here?
>> i do question why there are no u.s. senators or house members from these battleground states where these folks want to have these objections. so i think that is problematic from the get-go, but also no single member of congress has the thor to upend the electoral college. i look at south carolina, our state changed temporarily our own election laws. so we're going to upend the electoral college voters who overwhelmly goated for the president in this section? south carolina voters don't want california or new york or any other state to determine of results of the election. if we vote for overturn the electoral college, what we are saying is congress knows better than the states and knows better than the voters in that state. >> i got it. >> these are all questions that have to be vetted out on january 6th. >> let me ask you about this covid relief bill.
your future colleagues voted in favor of the $2,000 checks to americans in need. do you agree with both -- talk about strange bedfellows, talk about president trump and senator sanders who agree the senate should do the same? >> i do want to acknowledge that congressman-elect luke letlow passed away last night. i had covid-19, it's a very serious illness, he leaves behind a wife and two young children. i was horrified this happening and i hope every american takes this seriously. i'm heartbroken. i'm a single working mom of two kids. i can't imagine what his wife is going through during an enormous time of need. it shocked everybody in congress, democrat and republicans align. the one thing i want to say about the stimulus checks that i have a problem with, whether
it's $600 or $2,000, these checks are get to people who don't necessarily need it. i qualify for a -- but my income was not effect affected. my income was down because i ran for congress. but for people whose incomes or businesses haven't been negatively impacted, if you're making 75 granda year and you're making it all year, you still get a stimulus check. >> would you have voted for it, congresswoman-elect, just given what you're saying? >> when you look at checks going to dead people, people who are not sit zensz of our country, checks going who made a great income and whose incomes have not been negatively impacted, those checks need to go to people who lost their jobs, their businesses. that's where that money should go. it shouldn't -- we need to focus on those most in need.
that's not what the stimulus checks are doing. they're essentially going to everybody regardless of need. >> congresswoman-elect mace, i want to talk about you. i'm a big believer in representation, in more women being elected to congress on both sides of the aisle. your party had a number of victories in november, so again, congratulations to you. >> thank you. >> your back story, you dropped out of high school as a 17-year-old. as a fellow southerner, i appreciate the waffle house story. how duties get from the waffle house to the u.s. house? >> one big roller coaster. i've had as much failure as success. the story i told on the campaign trail is my life has been a series of second chances. i dropped out of the school at the age of 17. i had no intention of every going back. my very first job was at a waitress at a waffle house on the side of the interstate. when i had my acceptance speech on january 4th, i did it in the
parking lot of that same waffle house. i learned about the value of hard work. you don't have to be the smartest person in the room, but if you want to be successful, you have tore the hardest-working -- when the, my mace masks were soaked in my tears, because i was overwhelmed with how humbled i was with the win. i plan to work harder to represent the folks who sent me to washington and beyond. >> listen, i wish you well. >> thank you. >> come back anytime. congresswoman-elect nancy mace. >> thank you so much. >> you got it. coming up, new details off colorado where health official expect a second case of a variant, that some believe may be even more contagious. plus breaking news from the

when a hailstorm hit, he needed his insurance to get it done right, right away. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for. usaa we are back. you're watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. the first confirmed case of this new coronavirus variant detected in the united states. what experts say we should learn from this. take a listen to what rick bright told cnn this morning. >> it's not a surprise that the virus isn't already in the united states. it's been spreading in the uk
and other areas since at least last september. what's concerning is it's taken so long to detect it, and it tells us once again if you're not testing, you won't find it. now that we are intensified our testing, of course it's here. we need to bolster or genomic system for the united states. >> dr. wen, welcome. officials are monitoring the one confirmed case. they are also watching another suspected case of this variant both instances involved men who are working at an assist tiff living facility. they are members of the national guard deployed to this nursing home. what does that tell you? >> what we understand so far, less for the one person who is
the confirm case of this new variant is he did not have travel to the uk, which means by definition there is community transmission, because this individual had to get this variant from someone. it harkins back to what happened earlier in the pandemic, back last winter when we were doing testing and every case that we found was basically the canary in the coal mine. i very much great with dr. bright, this illustrates the true achilles' heel of our entire response, which is lack of testing. >> let's move to vaccinations. elizabeth cohen is reporting that the united states is willfully underperforming in its vaccination effort. what is the u.s. getting wrong? >> several things. first, we over-promised.
we had rosy projections that unfortunately as we're finding out now were not grounded in reality. second is a lack of a national strategy. basically the federal government said their responsibility is getting the doses to these depots. after that, it's up to the states to figure it out. the third problem is they didn't provide the funding and guidance that's necessary for state and local governments to do this work, but i want to put a positive spin that i believe we can do this. we certainly have the ability and infrastructure to actually do it, but we just need the guidance, and the national leadership to get us there. >> that's the difference, it sounds like between how the trump administration has approached it versus the biden administration really having the federal government take the lead. you wrote another op-ed for "the washington post," so i'd read part of your words. in fact -- more fancy wordplay that's cause for concern,
instead of vaccine distribution they promise allocation in december, actual delivery wouldn't take place under january. what do you mean by fancy wordplay? >> we ahead a lot of promises first 100 million doses, then it was vaccinating 20 million people, which is actually 40 million doses. maybe they thought we wouldn't notice when they downplayed it, the estimate to 20 million doses, then it became 20 million allocated, not distributed. allocated means the states can order it, but not delivered to the state. we need honesty and transparency. the american people understand that vaccine distribution is going to be extremely complicated. they'll understand missteps, but we at this point want honesty. we want the federal government to say these were the barriers we encountered. here is how we're going about
fixing then and course correcting. that's what's been missing. what about the news that the uk has authorized the astrazeneca vaccine. the health minister says he thinking it would get the uk in a much better place by spring so how much of a game changer moo i got this be? i think it could be a game changer. we in the u.s. still need to look at the data. just because it was approved by the uk doesn't necessarily it will get the same stamp of approval here. we need to carefully examine this. vaccine hesitancy is real. i go hope the uk is right that
they can and maybe we can learn from them. >> dr. wen, thank you. >> thank you, brooke. the suspect's girlfriend told police he was building bombs in his rv. our health matters more than ever, that's why the new myww+ is our most holistic weight loss program ever. the app helps you take the foods you have and gives you creative ideas for meals. you can choose any workout you want to fit within your time frame. there are a ton of zero point foods that i love. i never feel restricted. the new tools boost my mood and help keep me hydrated. more holistic. more personalized. more weight loss.

the president trump and believes trump will sign off on a emergency declaration for the state, but hasn't done so yet also, police were warned about the bomber. marty has more. >> reporter: august 2019th is when authorities got a phone call about concerns of a woman who may be suicidal? she go to her home and says the guns belonged to her boyfriend anthony warner. she also, according to the police report, tells police that he's building bombing in the rv behind his home. also present for the conversation is his attorney who represents both that woman and anthony warner. he too says he talks about bombs and the military, and sets it in such a way that the attorney believed anthony warner had the
ability to build a bomb. they go to warner's home, they see the rv, can't see into it, and there is no crime they see being economied. they don't have a sovereisearch but they report it to the local bomb squad and inquire are eventually made to the fbi, and whether they had anything on him. the answer to both questions came back no. so essentially everything gets dropped until, of course, the explosion that occurred on christmas day. then suddenly everybody wants to find out about anthony warner. the head of the tennessee bureau of investigation says there was nothing to indicate that anthony warner was on anybody's radar, yet it's clear by police records, records that were made, and federal inquiries, they were asking about anthony warner, about bombs, and about whether he may have any interest to federal authorities.
many clearly believe there was a ball dropped early in the investigation, long before the blast. brooke? >> martin, thank you. breaking news out of georgia, where the president has called on the governor to resign over trump's false beliefs about voter fraud. we'll wait for what the governor has to say. and we'll talk to a woman trying to protect her family and running her home. stay here.
thought of so many parents who could relate. how has the pandemic -- >> my kids of teenagers, so they're old enough to go places, do things themselves, and as they've gotten older and shown me more responsibility, i have given them more freedoms. at this stage in my life, they like to run around town by themselves, bike for friends' houses. they were really active, social kids. with the pandemic i've had to pull them back and rein them in so much because, you know, i'm trying to be responsible. i have he, and i don't want them -- i'm ruining their social life, it feels like, and that doesn't feel like. >> i don't want to run my house
like a meets state or discourage this, but as an asthmatic, use i want to catch covid and don't want my family responsible for given someone covid. talk about the story where you tailed your kits. >> i think they have an empathy and understanding of the gravity, but at the same time they're watching most of their friends still living life like there's no pandemic. you know, they have some friends that are being responsible, but the majority of their friends in our community are still hanging out, having slumber parties, doing what they did before. so, you know, as we're watching that, i kind of -- i've loosened the reins when i feel bad and tightened them up when i feel like it's too much, but one of the things i thought was the skate park.
they're outside. when you're skating you shouldn't be super-close. >> wearing their masks, you hoped? >> wearing their masks, i loped. so i told my boys, you can go to the skate park, but you have to leave the masks on. i knee everyone else was not leaving their masks on. social pressure of a 14-year-old boy at a skate park is a lot. it's a lot. so i sent them off to the skate park. i'm sitting at home thinking, i don't know if they're going to leave the masks on. so i get in my car and check on them. that's not a mom i want to be, like the spying, lurking at the skate park, but i pull of my cash, and lo and behold, they have been taken masks on. apparently they were made fun of for wearing them. so i call them off to the car and become like the total ly embarrassing mom who shows up and yells at her kids because they don't have the masks on.
i'm at that moment, how did i get here? this is not who i want to be as a mom, but you know, we're in difficult circumstances. i think every mother is taking choices that have a lot of cognitive dissonance. >> i can feel the moms and dads listening to you, being so real about you and nodding all along and related to this internal monologue that you've had, that so many parents have had for so many months. i appreciate you putting it out there. kristin howerton, the blog is race against the minivan.com. good luck, as we roll into 2021. >> thank you. >> thank you. breaking news out of georgia. governor kemp is speaking right now, as president trump calls for him to resign, after refusing to give credence to his baseless election fraud claims. we have an update for you next.

we have two major developments on high-profile cases of deadly police shootings involving black americans. louisville police seeking to fire two detectives connected to the killing of breonna taylor that set off a wave of protests across america thissine. and two cleveland police officers will avoid criminal charges in their roles in the killing of tamir. we look at race and policing in 20 2020. i can't breathe.
those three words took the world's breath away. in 2020, the killing of 46-year-old george floyd pushed policing and race to the forefront of american consciousness. all moments leading to floyd ace death are captured on video, after he's accused of passing a counterfeit $20 bill. video of his death viewed by millions across the world. >> breaking overnight protesters clashing with police in minneapolis. >> the mayor has announced the four officers are now, his words, former employees. >> protests were spreading eventually becoming the largest civil rights protest the world has ever seen. there were moments of solidarity, and moments of hue
mill knit, the indianapolis chief removing his cap, cnn connecting them with the floyd family. >> to the floyd family, being silent or not intervening to me, you're complicit. i don't see a level of distinction any different. but those moments were broken apart by bouts of police brutality, burning and looting by some who took part in protests and poor policing, one example playing out live on air. >> if you're just tuning in, you are watching or correspondent omar jimenez being arrested by state police in minnesota. >> reporter: as the protests for floyd dinned in the streets, names of other black americans killed bring police were hoisted up in the crowd. one in particular. >> in the breaking news this
morning, questions around the country how a block woman could be killed in her apartment by police, and no one charged in her death. her name, as we know, was breonna taylor. >> police say they announced who they were before they entered the apartment, but her boyfriend disputes that. >> there was a loud bang at the door. nobody was responding, saying who is it? he fired his weapon thinking it was an intruder. all but one officer was charged. no one faces charges for killing taylor. >> according to kentucky law, the use of force was justified. >> across the world people joined the chorus of voices. >> they said there were other possibility charges that we considered, but nothing that we could make stick. >> taylor's family decided to fight in another way --
politically, alongside their attorney benjamin crump, who had become synonymous with civil rights cases. >> if we don't get out here and change the people in these positions, they are going to continue to kill us. >> the black lives matter movement suddenly became one of the sole focuses of a nation, as many americans sheltered at home, because all of this unfolded as the pandemic began ravaging the country, particularly devastating the black community who were dying from covid-19 at twice the rate of white americans. in kenosha, wisconsin, two shooting incidents caught america's attention. jibe coke blake was shot in the back by an over trying to detain him, his children watching from the back of a van. when police arrived on the scene for a domestic smite, they later said they had a knife, they recovered it from his van and there was worry that he might be
kidnapping the children. his family baulked at the story, insisting he would you say unarmed. >> do justice on this level and examine your hearts. we need healing. >> instead, fires and fury exploded in the streets. >> the unrest here in kenosha turning even more violent, even deadly overnight. >> a white suspect shoots three people, two are killed, as protesters chase the alleged shooter, kyle rittenhouse, as he's walking by with his hands up, a gun with him, police roll right by him. he now faces charges of murder and possessing an illegal weapon. >> there's two justice systems. one for the white boy who walked down the streets and murdered those two people and blew that other man's arm off, and then there is a justice system for
mine. >> that same dearth namic played out in georgia, first in february ahmaud arbery chased down and gunned down. and initially police treat arbery as the suspect. social media erupts when the initial video is posted. it takes 74 days before the men are charged and arrested. >> i want to see these people go to jail. they need the hardest crime they can get. >> the man said they thought they were chasing down a robber, but he was simply jogging while black. >> on june 12th, another man dies at the hands of police, rashard brooks was sleeping in his car blocking a wendy's drive-there's. >> i can walk home. >> reporter: for 40 minutes the
interact with police is calm, but when police try to arrest him, he fights back, trying to use the shooting added fuel to ongoing systemic racism. charges in the crime were brought against two of the officers. the cases, one after another, prompted calls of dismantling of police. but that doesn't stick. what does get traction is defunding the police. at least a dozen cities planned to cut or did cut some police department funding to put it towards other community safety programs, including those involving mental health care. in september, calls for a different approach to those in mental health crises exploded after this rochester, new york police body cam video is released from a march incident. police are seen putting a spit
hood on daniel prude who said he had coronavirus. prude was naked and clearly in distress. he was later declared brain dead as a result of officers holding him down even after he vomited into the spit hood. no one faced discipline until the video went public. the police chief is soon fired. >> we have a pervasive problem in the rochester police department. >> reporter: the demands for police reform only heightened as 2020 came to a close. police say they're under fire and under pressure as crime spikes in some cities while many black and brown americans say in 2020 they faced two epidemics, coronavirus and racism, both disproportionately killing them. as the first female black vice president and the man who served under the very first black president are poised to take office in january, the black community, who played a major role in helping them get elected, are demanding concrete

smoked pot in the white house one night when he was spending the night with me. and he says that his companion who shared the pot with him was one of the servers at the white house. that is not exactly true, it actually was one of my sons which he didn't want to categorize as a potsmoker like him. there were some people who didn't like me being deeply involved with bob dillon and other disreputable rock and rollers, but i was doing what i believed, and the following of those musicians was much more influential than a few people who thought being associated with rock and roll and radical people was inappropriate for a president. >> make sure you tune in to the film. it airs sunday night at 9:00 right here on cnn. this just in, georgia's republican governor brian kemp responding to a tweet from
president trump calling for the governor to resign and adding this bold-faced lie. quote, he's an obstructionist that refuses to admit that we won georgia. big. cnn's ryan nobles is in atlanta. my goodness, how did the governor respond to that? >> well, it was pretty clear that brian kemp did not want to spend his wednesday afternoon responding to his tweets, going so far as to say the governor needs to resign with the way he's handled this election. kemp has said the way he handled this whole election was a distraction, a distraction to the runoff which he is working very hard to help get republican candidates elected. listen to how kemp responded a few minutes ago. >> i got to focus on the issues of the day in georgia, not what someone else is tweeting. that horse has left the barn in
georgia and it's head to do d-- headed to d.c. it's going to be there, not here. >> and kemp said the president responded to all sorts of different things about the georgia lekelection, including, there kneelneeded to be a hand recount, there needed to be a signature check. these are things georgia has done. there was a recount and joe biden won every time, and the secretary of state's office completed an audit of one of the counties that president trump had specifically said was a problem related to the signature match system. they found that it was 99.9% accurate and that there was no fraud. keep in mind the secretary of state is a republican. so that's why kemp is saying it's time to stop talking about this, it's time to focus on the election that's coming up on january 5th, and when asked if it was a distraction, he said,
of course it's a distraction, and he's worried it could impact kelly loeffler and david perdue. that's it for me. i'm brooke baldwin. tune in tomorrow night on new year's eve. i'll be on with some fun people.
