tv   Inside Politics With Abby Phillip  CNN  September 5, 2021 5:00am-6:00am PDT

5:00 am
we don't want women to be without healthcare. >> president biden's plans for a labor day recess after a terrible month at home and abroad. >> we'll create millions of good paying jobs that's going to transform america and propel us into the future. wildfires in the west, hurricanes in the south, flood ng ing in the east. >> democrats say they plan to fight climate change is more e essential than ever.
5:01 am
>> global warming is upon us, it is going to get worse and worse unless we do something about it. inside politics, the biggest stories sort by the best reporters now. welcome to "inside politics," it kat kat katelyn kaitlan collins. >> we want to get the little texts in the womb who has a heartbeat to see their full potential. >> the texas law bans abortion after six weeks of now exceptions of rape or incest. private citizens can sue those who performs the procedure. plaintiffs can receive as
5:02 am
$10,000 bounty. democrats are pushing back on the supreme court's decision but there is little they can do. >> the supreme court making a decision that it did and not only disrespected women but it disrespected the supreme court and its formal decision. one week back to washington, we'll be putting roe v. wade on the floor of the house. >> joining me now with their reporting is jackie from "the daily beast." joan, i want you to put this in perspective that we got in the supreme court this week. >> it was. i don't think we canover state how big this was. with the new court, we saw roe v. wade was definitely going to
5:03 am
be diminished but we didn't think it was going to happen this fast. i did not think a majority of this course would want to be gained as much as it was. this law took in effect. this law is patently unconstitutional based on roe v. wade. roe v. wade so that government can't interfere before a fetus is viable about 22 or 23 weeks. this is six weeks. it clear lly violates roe v. wade. this law is so bad, it is unprecedented. it delegates enforcement to private citizens which is why it made it tricky for the court to handle it. the descends all of them wrote which reminded me of bush v.
5:04 am
gore. this is not as big as bush v. gore but it is a turning point to the court. it is all made possible by what happened one year ago this month when ruth bader ginsburg suddenly passed away and donald trump was able to name amy coney barrett to the court. this was not a cautious order. if there are legal questions here, it will not harm the clinics for women in texas to have this take in effect. we know this happens, people are driving elsewhere. what happens when they are expected to rule soon on the mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks. >> right, you are right to bring it up. that's the case where they
5:05 am
actually accepted a challenge to a 15-week ban and they're going to have full briefings and oral arguments. everyone is able to make his/her case as opposed to texas where it is done within 72 hours. the court will then say what the faith of roe v. wade is in terms of viability line. especially after what we saw what happened this week that they'll dissolve that line. it is huge. >> we heard from president biden this week, he issued paper statement and he did comment and pushing back saying it creates a vigilante system. >> it sounds un-american of what we are talking about. not a debate about, i respect people to think that who don't support roe v. wade. i respect their views. i respect those who believe life begins in the moment of
5:06 am
conception, i respect that, i don't agree but i respect that. >> i am not sure if he said the word abortion in those comments? >> no. president biden never said the word abortion as president and this week was the first time we saw it used in a statement when the supreme court declined the rule on wednesday. that shows you it has not been at the forefront at the president over the last month months as president everyn thou states passing it. it did cause some angst among activists who says the president should be out front of it. he's asking the justice department to look at ways that people may may still get abortions in texas but their options are limited.
5:07 am
there is not a lot that the president can do. >> what can doj or hss really do? if they can't do anything, you saw how speaker pelosi says they'll bring legislation to the floor. that's what you can see done in washington. there is not the votes in the senate. they sort of suck and can move things around looks like they are doing something. pelosi is going to push this but there is not a whole lot that can be done unless and they can try to turn it into campaign issues and 2022, i am sure they're going to try. that's a long time away. you don't know what's going to happen between now and then to see if it can move the needle politically. the question is whether it can galvanize voters is a big one. a majority of people do support abortion should be always or mostly always legal. what do you think the public reaction is this and this is
5:08 am
going to be in. will democrats be able to use this effectively given they have not been spurred on by nomination. >> they have a long history of reminding particularly women voters of the threat they have always said that republicans posed to abortion rights and now they have a strong example of that. i do think for a long time we have seen the american public in the sort of mushy middle of the abortion issue and roe v. wade was sort of right in that space, saying there could be some restrictions but there is constitutional right. to have this status quo of abortion politics blown up in this way will have unpotential fall-out. you do hear a lot of republicans establishment types having profound calm about this because
5:09 am
of the opportunity to galvanize voters on the left. republicans have not been vocal about this. >> they have not. you see them not wanting to talk about that in large part and saying they think too much has been made of it or we don't know how it is going to play out. in actual facts whether you are talking about on the court's dock docket or in texas. it increases a chance that it is a campaign issue. >> we see democrats taken advantage of it. >> that's it. you saw some conservatives who did speak out like the wall street journal editorial page says let's not have this. this is something should not have been done. people who proposed this law and
5:10 am
supporters of it all acknowledged that it is unconstitutional. it tchanged the debate and now f they uphold the mississippi 15-week ban, oh, it seems moderate but it won't be. nearly 15 years the line is viability when a fetus can live outside a woman. it changes individual rights for women across the country. >> yes, do you think other republicans trying to act similar legislation? >> absolutely. you see that with voting rights and you have seen it with second amendment issues around the country for years. i would be remissed if i did not mention. one place also is corporate america which shows a willingness to hop in these political debates from social justice issues. voting rights is wrapped into that.
5:11 am
lbgtq rights and corporations pull out of certain states because some of these issues. nothing. smaller companies have weighed in and issued a press release on the texas law but for the major corporations that taken a stand is nothing. >> if one exception is uber and lyft. a driver takes a woman to an abortion clinic could be sued under this law. they established some legal e fence. the way the vigilante is in this law -- mitch mcconnell when he deprived president obama of the supreme court justice when he pushed through president trump's second supreme court justice and when he pushed to have the last supreme court justice approved
5:12 am
at the very las t day of trump' turn. they are not necessary si comfortable with the law they have got. it has this disutopian vigilant. we'll keep up with that, whether the white house got in on the science on vaccine boosters. "inside politics sunday" brought to you by adt, real protection.

5:17 am
>> plan every adult to get a booster shot eight months after your second shot. pending approval from the food and drug administration, cdc's committee of outside experts, will be ready to start these boosters during the week of september 20th. >> we are two weeks away from that date. they are on track to approve boosters for those who got the pfizer shot. those who got j&j and moderna may have to wait for data. the wall street journal's josh is joining us. dr. randy, did the white house get ahead of the science on this? >> all right, we'll check on dr.
5:18 am
randy's audio. what do you think? the president did put this data of september 20th in people's mind. >> i think the point of whether he did or did not get ahead of science, the perception is already out there. here is the white house's announcement coming ahead of what science are saying. i will say two things that struck me is talking to voters recently is clear that covid is still something people care about. it is also they are frustrated of what seems to be changing about the get vaccinated and you don't have to wear a mask and now we'll be having boosters on september 20th, now maybe we won't. that's what the white house needs to prepare a competent of covid and needs a challenge and how they stay in steps with the science that he campaigned on and without making people feel confident. >> we did see two fda's vaccine
5:19 am
regulators say they'll be stepping down this fall it will be a critical preeriod as they making decisions for vaccines for children. what have you heard behind the decision to retire at this time? >> there are some internal frustration at the fda of how boosters process was handled. they feel the science should have been out front on this and the president clearly looking for a way to remind americans that they have things under control and they are prepared to hand them out. i didn't struck where this holiday weekend is so different than the last federal holiday when the president was out on the 4th of july, the south lawn saying that we are nearing freedom from the virus. of course he had all the caveats, he said there could be a second wave. now that we come to this labor day weekend, kids are going back to school. this is the date a lot of offices have said employees
5:20 am
should be coming back to the offi offi office. they're not, all that gotten pushed back. this is what he'll be charged more than anything else and more than afghanistan and more than other issues that's bubbling under the surface. it is the issue he has the least control of. people are so uncertain about what's happening with covid. dr. paul amali advises on vaccine decisions, this is what he says how he thinks the biden administration had been handling all of this. >> the administration pronounced that we'll have a vaccine, three-dose vaccine for the public by september 20th without doing it the right way. this is what we didn't like the
5:21 am
last administration of proclaiming things like clorox chewable. >> there is no question people feel jerked around. everyone understands conditions have changed a lot. everyone understands what the administration is dealing with and what the world is dealing with in terms of variants and so on. at the same time there has been a clear ability to communicate clearly and consistently with the american people and particularly when so many people, a, so excited to come out of this and that sort of jerked away and again, not the administration's fault. were people prepared and did people know what they were supposed to do next or was there a clear national standard set? >> the administration had been scrambling to deal with all these in a way that did not inspire confidence. >> i want to bring in dr. randy
5:22 am
on this. have you seen the data that boosters are likely for mostly everyone? >> the data that i have seen shows that immunity wans overtime after particularly that pfizer shot and particularity against the delta variant. remember the folks who got the vaccine first in israel or the u.k. were the elderly, this does not say the average young healthy person is going to need a booster at six or eight months after their initial series of doses. it would be so appropriate for the white house to say look, we are looking forward and we are going to have boosters without putting a particular date and without saying it is going to apply to everyone in the united states. >> dr. randy, thank you for joining us. we are glad to reestablish your connection this morning. >> thank you. >> president biden standing his plummeted among independent voters. we'll talk about the white house's plan to recover from a rough august.

5:28 am
jobs kracreation. >> this is the kind of growth that i can mas our economy stronger and consistent. his aprooproval rating is down in a new post out this morning. he dropped ten points to 36%. josh, of course, this has not been the best month for the administration. they have been dealing with a lot of unforeseen crisis that's unpredictable. with afghanistan specifically, we are looking at the polls that came out. a majority of voters do support his idea and plans but they don't like the way the draw down happened. only 26% of approved the president's handling of that.
5:29 am
>> to look up and see these types of chaotic images, a place that people know and invest in so much money. we did a story last week talking to people on the ground how they felt about it. it was disoriented for them and a lot of people felt strongly that president biden could have done a better job with it. we are talking about his approval rating among independents. his approval rating have gone down. like you were mentioning of covid, his approval rating dropped 16 points from april. so while there is this disorientation that a lot of people feel about of the withdrawal from afghanistan. i think covid is going to be with the president for a lot of people. >> i do. >> now that u.s. troops are out of afghanistan, that could take the pressure off for some.
5:30 am
this will be once again brought up this coming saturday on the answeniversary of 9/11 when the president is visiting all three sites of the attack. how do you think they'll handle that? >> there is one interesting number in that abc polls. only 8% felt safe after the afghanistan withdrawal. 44% said the country is less safe. that's sort of the lingering effects of this withdrawal. what white house officials believe that overtime more americans will come to believe that the president did the right thing in withdrawing from afghanistan. but when these concerns of terrorism and safety still lingers, that's something will persist. that's something the president knows and we'll hear from the
5:31 am
president more about this cou cou counter terrorism issue. when this war ended with terrorist attack committed by isis-k and kabul. that's not something people want to look at and feel comfortable with. >> it is something republicans are going to make campaign issues. >> will they be successful with that when they are back here in washington. do you think they'll be effective with that. >> i think only time will tell. we know there will be congressional investigations into the withdrawal. these are democratic-led investigations. you are not going to see this drop fire republican certainly. it is hard to say, right? because there are so many un unforeseen issue. you have to imagine this administration is going to focus on legislative wins the next
5:32 am
couple of weeks. once congress comes back, it is going to be infrastructure all the time and getting some "w" on the floor. >> covid is still expected. as we are saying that his approval has dropped 10% when it comes to coronavirus. he has said that's what matters the most of shaping his presidency is how they handle this. what is their plan do you think? we know he's supposed to speak this week on plans to combat the variant. something he talks about a lot, still a big issue. >> because it does not feel under control to people. do covid approval is like the economy at this point. the administration knows this is sort of their new stop market is the case number. they have got to find a way to at least appear to have a plan for it because there has been this feeling of conflicting
5:33 am
guidance and confusing guidance, people don't know what the message is out of this administration in term of s of e we expect to be over the long-term. this is what we can expect to hear about as they try to convince the american people they are in control. >> they tie so much of this back to their agenda. senator manchin added another thing to the president's full to do list. >> he's back. >> if you have not read his op-ed, he says democrats should hit a pause on the bill and instead of passing a smaller bipartisan bill. is he going to stand in the president's agenda here? >> if not him, senator sinema says she's not going to support the $3.5 billion number.
5:34 am
it is going to come in smaller, manchin shown a willing nness t flex his muscle. manchin comes out with these dictates and says he wants to pause but he does not say what in it he wants change. it is a lot more making this bill more moderate and trying to make it seem as if it will just be democrats or trying to make it seems instill some of his career trademark pmoderation ino the bill. what's frustrating for the white house is they don't know what it means and they only have a few weeks. >> yeah, they have a deadline coming up. bernie sanders tweeted, no infrastructure bill without the $3.5 million reconciliation bill. >> what do democrats say about joe manchin? >> look, i think like you said
5:35 am
that frustration is shared by a lot of the colleagues that he'll set out without saying what exactly he wants. he did the same thing of bipartisan infrastructure negotiations. when he gets back, number one question is going to be asking is, is $2 trillion low enough or $3 trillion? you will see more pressure on him saying what he wants. >> did democrats think manchin is gettable ultimately? >> yes, they do. the fact they had the vote on the framework before they left town after that exhausting series of 4:00 a.m. votes on the bipartisan infrastructure video. the fact that manchin played ball before that and tonon the voting rights issues. i wrote a profile of senate majority schumer and i talked to
5:36 am
a lot of democrats on that piece. we know negotiations happening there. what they have been told by leadership is don't draw any red lines at this point and what they were telling me is that top line number is going to be what most people talk about. what they are more concerned about is what they represent and what is in the bill and that's what the committees are working on now and that's what we'll hear more about as they start to coming back to town and the next week. >> senator manchin will be at the center of all of this. >> a lot of big gaggles. >> yes. >> up next, extreme weather is devastating americans from coast to coast. is the country ready for major action on climate change? eir windshield got a chip, they wanted it fixed fast. they drove to safelite autoglass for a guaranteed, same-day, in-shop repair. we repaired the chip before it could crack. and with their insurance, it was no cost to them. >> woman: really? >> tech: that's service you can trust, when you need it most.

5:42 am
interesting. going back to 1977, seeing the view of people worrying the effect of global warming. democrats are at 46%. speed to 2021, 29% of republicans and 82% of democrats. >> i do think it is striking to see how quickly president biden made the link between these storms and climate change. that was not always the case particularly with republicans and now soon he made the case to pass his legislative agenda. these bills that are making their way parallel through continue with funding with climate change and infrastructure. when you see the whole electrical grid going out in louisiana and the subway tunnel floods in new york, it is hard to argue that our infrastructure does not need approving. including this major provision
5:43 am
that subsidized and incentivized clean power. that's something democrats have been push forget a long time. you start to see people on defense of the reconciliation bill come out and support of the climate change provisions of it and saying those parts of it don't necessarily have to be fully funded. i think it is pushing the agenda forward. in a way these storms make it easier for the president to make those arguments. >> they were doing it. we were in new york. the morning after remnants of hurricane. you were hearing it from the president from the new governor kathy hochul. you do a lot of reporting, a lot of the red states are being affected by this. what are you hearing from officials in the state and voters in the state about their concerns? >> one thing you hear from voters is climate change never comes up except some of the
5:44 am
die-hard liberal type voters i talk to. most people bring up education and a lot of people bring up covid and so you know i do think there is a chance this has a lot of movement among some people. it remains to be seen and especially in washington you talk about the reconciliation bill. the only reason we are talking about rec sonciliation bill because it is steadfast. i think that's the challenge for climate going forward. >> it is going to be a big conversation going forward at this fall. there were a lot of senate space around this. it is a big talker when it comes to john kerry talking about this as well. how are they going to navigate this and try to use the momentum because in a few weeks it could change things. >> it is something democrats agree on universally, it did not
5:45 am
necessarily be the case. think of joe manchin taking a shot done to the climate bill. i am not saying manchin is a climate warrior but it is a case where you have a lot of consensus and momentum among the democratic party from the m moderates to the liberals. progressives would like to see a lot more done and that has been a lot of klcomplains. i do find that when i ask voters, particularly younger voters not liberal activists, they are concerned of the climate issue. the beginning of the administration there were a lot of awareness of reentry into the paris agreement. something about and they hope they can message it to people on something like infrastructure bill to try to convince voters that's part of what they are doing

he won't say what that decision is, only that his supporters will be, quote, very, very happy. but sources tell cnn that one person who won't be happy if he runs again is the former first lady, melania trump. cnn's kate bennett joins the panel now with her exclusive reporting. so, kate, what did you learn? >> not unlike 2016 melania trump has no intention really of joining the campaign or being a prolific presence. i've spoke to people who said that she's not really even interested in being in the white house again going through being first lady again. we know she's an extremely private person and that being in the public eye wasn't necessarily something she wanted to do in the first place. she's retreated now back to mar-a-lago being a mom, et cetera. and she really has no interest in helping her husband with his perceived, as we all know, his political ambitions.

>> is this not a conversation that's happening? >> i don't think that's how they operate. people are under the misconception that this is a couple that don't spend time together, they don't talk. that's not true. they have very independent lives, but they do consult one another. in 2016 when she was asked to do events, asked to go on campaign events and rallies, the answer was no so often that people on trump's campaign just stopped asking her because it was always going to be a no. and we'll see that again this time around. >> we haven't really seen her make any public appearances like you would very much expect a first lady to do. >> she has not really taken advantage of the breadth and scope of the platform that a former first lady has. many of them are inspired by the work they do in the white house. they continue doing foundations. michelle obama, even laura bush have work to do every day from the time as first lady. it's been about seven months

since she left the white house. there has not been an initiative, a platform. not good or bad, she's just broken the mold. but i do think it is a challenge when you lower that platform for this amazing opportunity you have to influence the world with messaging. but like her husband, she is an anomaly of american politics. >> her husband has been very out there. his former adviser jason miller says that he hasn't outright said he's going to run. but he's strongly hinting at it. >> i would say somewhere between 99 and 100%. i think he's definitely running in 2024. i had a good conversation with him last night. i'm going to see him in another couple days here. he has not said the magical words to me, but if you talk to him for a few minutes it's pretty clear that he's running. >> do you think it's clear that the former president is going to run again? >> i think that's a different

thing than he is running right now. i think it is clear that he is running right now in the sense that he's keeping his hat in the ring, he's trying to keep everybody interested. it seems very clear that his need right now is for attention above everything. and so by saying things like this and having people around him say things like this, and i'm not saying they're not true, i'm clear that his head is still very much in the political process. does that translate to him actually being on the ballot in 2024? i don't think anybody could know that at this point. >> but it's attention and influence as well. he continues to raise money and continues to have influence over the republican party and he's getting his way and steering things in places he wants them to be. >> and when it comes to that influence, we know that he is getting involved in these congressional races even though some republican leaders want him to stay out of these resources, he is still getting in and endorsing these people. >> i remember back in cpac in,

like, february, rick scott was like let's stay in the role as much as possible. i think it's clear that as much as maybe the gop primaries that we think might be referendums on trump. what we see on the ground from ohio to north carolina and those senate races to the virginia governor's race that the base of the party is still with trump, the candidates are still trying to be trumpian. and the template is who is the most like trump. when it comes to those endorsements, rick scott might just have to endure with them for the time being. >> whether he gets in or not, he is still looming over it all. that's it for "inside politics: sunday." the weekday show is noon eastern. up next is "state of the union" with jake tapper and dana bash. ron klain and republican congressman adam kinzinger. thanks again for sharing your moment with us.
