tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  December 10, 2021 5:00am-6:00am PST

5:00 am
everyone know that this president is the one that he is -- he is that person that made the promises and he will accomplish all those. >> manuel, you are clearly tireless. we have seen how creative you are. you actually, in june you duped an ex-nra chief into giving a fake graduation speech before thousands of empty chairs, students who would have graduated, but who were not going to graduate from college because they are dead. and now you're on this, you know, almost ten days in, outside the white house, do you ever think, like, all of this that i'm doing and it is not making a difference. do you ever feel that way? >> i do. and that's why i need to do new things. frustration is not an option here. empowering is the option. like, i always said that, like, if i'm trying to do something, and you're right, we have not stopped since february 14th, four years ago, and that is not
5:01 am
bringing the results that we want, then we need to do something else and something else and something else. so it is not that i'm staying there, waiting for these to happen. i am also planning, meanwhile, and doing other things, because i am, again, i have to be a responsible father and i have to protect my son. >> you will be there, we expect, outside the white house on your birthday. another birthday that your son should be with you and you should have been able to celebrate his 21st this past summer and, of course, manuel, we're always thinking of you, thinking of your family and your son. thank you. >> thank you. thank you for having me. "new day" continues right now. good morning to our viewers here in the united states and all around the world. i'm john berman with brianna keilar. it is friday, december 10th. we have breaking news. a delta airlines flight forced to make an emergency landing overnight after a violent incident in midair. >> and police tell cnn a passenger had to be restrained after allegedly assaulting a
5:02 am
flight attendant and then an air marshal stepped in to help. we have pete muntean tracking the latest developments here. do we know what started all this, pete? >> reporter: well, what is so interesting in all of this is that we don't know what precipitated this. but we have heard about flight attendants being attacked and that's terribly sad. this is the first time in me covering this for months that we have heard of a federal air marshal being attacked and the tsa tells me they're researching this, these are the plains clothes officers, about 3,000 of them in the tsa on board planes, trained to de-escalate situations like this. we know the air marshal tried to intercede and restrain this passenger and that's when the attack happened. police in oklahoma city where this flight diverted to, going from d.c. to l.a., tell us this passenger, this suspect is a man in his mid-30s. he's not been charged yet. we don't know his name just yet. though we do know the fbi is involved and that's a good thing here because the department of justice has been directed to
5:03 am
intercede in cases like this. of these cases, 5500 of them reported by flight crews of unruly passengers to the faa, just this year alone. about 70% have been -- about 37 of those most extreme cases have been referred to the department of justice. so we have to wait to see exactly how this plays out on the federal government's front because the faa can only impose civil fines. it is the department of justice typically that can bring these most severe federal cases. we do not know exactly how this federal air marshal was injured, if at all, or if this flight attendant was injured. we have seen those cases over and over again. those flight attendants have been on the front line. this is the first time we heard of a federal air marshal getting attacked. >> this is interesting here, pete. it looks like it went to the second level. it was -- if it was, first, with the flight attendant, then the air marshal and whatever happened there was such a problem, you had to land the plane. >> yeah, that's right. and we have seen federal air marshals, people asked me over and over again, where are the
5:04 am
air marshals in all this? they're on many flights, not every flight, many flights. and they also have been involved in heavily training these flight attendants to de-escalate the situations. i've been through the training where federal air marshals will teach flight attendants in self-defense. it has gotten so extreme, these problems. 5 500 cases this year and 77% of them over masks and the special training to do their job. it is a sad case. >> pete, thank you so much. this is incredibly alarming. we're going to see how this continues to develop. we have new reporting this morning that reveals donald trump and benjamin netanyahu no longer allies, at least not now. the former president confirming he doesn't even speak to the former israeli prime minister, adding eff him. trump goes on to say, first person to congratulate biden was
5:05 am
bi bibi netanyahu. thank you for being with us. i'm not sure i explained this as clearly as i could here. you have broken reporting as part of a new book coming out, out in axios overnight, that, to me, is really interesting. which is that former president trump is livid at benjamin netanyahu. he isn't talking to him. he's pissed. he said eff him. why? all because netanyahu dared to congratulate joe biden on his election victory. why don't you explain to us what you learned? >> hi, good morning. so as you said, i interviewed trump twice. once in april and second time in july as part of my work on my book that just came out here in israel. and what was interesting in this interview is that it broke the
5:06 am
myth that there was this bromance between donald trump and benjamin netanyahu. and this was a myth that both politicians cultivated for their own domestic politics. netanyahu, i don't know if you remember, even during the election campaigns, put up huge billboards with him and trump standing next to each other with the headline from a different league. this was his calling card as a politician, his relationship with trump. as you were surprised in the west, just imagine what people here in israel thought. because until today, everybody thought they were best friends. and from now on, it is clear this was bull. >> a technical term there i think you could say, barak. it is not like netanyahu congratulated him right away. he waited a little while and i also wonder what you think about
5:07 am
the fact that, you know, this sort of shows what donald trump, how much personalities obviously he valued here, but also his view of, you know, whether netanyahu has to acknowledge america is a nation, not just acknowledge america if donald trump is in charge. >> yeah, i think this was one of netanyahu's biggest mistakes because bibi put all of his chips on donald trump. and basically took israel from the position that it was a bipartisan issue, that both republicans and democrats supported, and during those four years of trump, israel became a partisan issue. i think that what we see today with those quotes coming out, it is clear how big of a mistake netanyahu has made. i want to tell you another thing. what trump says about netanyahu and the fact that he congratulated biden and it is obvious that he -- bibi didn't have any other choice. it is not done that you don't
5:08 am
congratulate the new elected president to the united states, but i think that the fallout between them and this my book reveals this quite extensively was wider, because this was just what broke the camel's back. trump felt that netanyahu over his last year of this presidency, he felt netanyahu was ungrateful, disloyal, he didn't really want peace with the palestinians. and that he used him when he ran. and all of those things are going to be revealed in the coming days with more excerpts from my book published on axios and, by the way, this upcoming monday we will release a two-part podcast on axios, how it happened, trump's big deal, with many, many, many more details of the fallout between netanyahu and trump over the accords, iran and many other issues. it is not just bibi congratulating biden. this was the end.
5:09 am
during the last year of trump and even before there were many, many things that were hidden under the table because it was important for both trump and netanyahu to show that there is no daylight, and now we see that there was quite a lot of daylight. >> now they're not even talking or they weren't. i have to say, this is all news to us. all of this is something that i was certainly not aware of before this came out overnight. i was struck, though, and i say you -- i know you say it is only a part of this story, the end of the story, but trump went so far as to tell you, you know, putin waited, bolsonaro waited to congratulate biden or acknowledge the victory, why couldn't netanyahu? it is really interesting who trump is referring to there in the company he's trying to put netanyahu with. >> exactly. because it shows where he puts netanyahu, which category of leaders around the world. but trump said even something more interesting. he basically admitted that
5:10 am
during his presidency, he took decisions that helped netanyahu in his elections when netanyahu was trailing in the polls, before the april 2019 elections, trump took a decision to recognize the golan heights, the controversial area in northern israel that was occupied from syria in 1967, to recognize it as part of israel. trump told me that after doing this, netanyahu went up in the polls and he said if i haven't done that, he would lose the election. so in trump's mind, when he took this decision, it was also -- there were other reasons, but one of the reasons was to help netanyahu with the elections. i think this is why trump felt so betrayed when netanyahu didn't do the same for him. >> again, it is a personal level, not a global level, doesn't matter getting piece here, piece there, doing the right thing doesn't appear to be
5:11 am
what trump cared about most, it is doing what benefits him personally that seemed to be driving all this and driving his rage at least in the end. barak ravid, i look forward to reading this, or read the parts that end up in english. it is in hebrew right now. >> tune into axios on monday morning. the podcast will be online. and there will be many, many more scoops. and you should stay tuned. >> all right. well, you're certainly good at the tease, in addition to your reporting. barak, thank you so much. >> thank you so much. the parents of two oxford high students are now suing the school for not preventing last week's deadly shooting. their lawyer joins us live. could 2022 be the year of the carpetbaggers? a look at the out of towners running for office next year. and a reality check on the jussie smollett verdict, american politics and the punishment for lying.

indeed you do. indeed instant match instantly delivers quality candidates matching your job description. visit ♪ baby got back by sir mix-a-lot ♪ unlimited cashback match... only from discover. actor jussietsie smollett f guilty. a notable example of consequence for such a thing in our society. john avlon with a reality check. >> a hate crime hoax say loathsome thing. and that's what tv actor jussie smollett did. he lied about being beaten on the street, doused with bleach, a noose put around his neb. he said masked attackers who he
5:16 am
assumed were white yelled racist and homophobiic slurs and, quot, this is maga country. it was all an lie. a jury found five of the six charges on him. smollett seemed to believe being a victim would elevate his stature, which says a lot about what we honer in society today. he continued to insist he was telling the truth, as if repetition of the lie would erase the overwhelming evidence and even the confessions of his accomplices. of course, hate crime hoaxes do real harm. they're used to discredit actual incidents that often get less attention than this celebrity scam. after all, the fbi reports that hate crimes have been on the rise, 12 year high in 2020. so it is no surprise that many people took smollett at his word, and attempting a hate crime hoax, this brazen, seemed unthinkable. to friends and fellow celebrities, many politicians put out statements of support, including joe biden, kamala
5:17 am
harris and aoc, who assumed he was telling the truth. right wing talk tv made much of this, ignoring the fact that president donald trump offered sympathetic words. chicago sun-times columnist mary mitchell said the incident sounds so bizarre, it is easy to doubt it happened. when the cook county prosecutor's office tried to make it all go away, chicago's democratic mayor at the time rahm emanuel called it a whitewash of justice, while the police chief released more and more information. ultimately, the trial went forward, the truth came out, but right wing talking heads are still trying to use the verdict to put the media on trial, saying it was complicit in amplifying the hoax. that's a self-serving charge. but let's try to cut through all the situational ethics and apply the same standard across the partisan divide. jussie msmollett's repetition o a lie did not make it true. he thought by playing the
5:18 am
victim, regardless of evidence, he could benefit from the attention. it is a strategy he might as well have learned from donald trump. when caught in a lie, double down, lie more, play the victim, ignore the facts, make excuses, demonize the other side, and hope the confusion muddies the waters enough to fool your supporters and avoid accountability. didn't work in jussie smollett's case. he's an actor. donald trump was president of the united states. he should not be held to a lower standard. and yet he's so far totally avoided legal accountability for his hoax. defrauding the american people by continuing to lie about a free and fair election he lost, trying to intimidate election officials and interfere in election results, both crimes, by the way. inciting insurrection and sewing distrust in our democracy in the process. and, of course, despite all the evidence, donald trump's big lie continues to be amplified by right wing media. and in that sense, donald trump is the jussie smollett of american politics.
5:19 am
we break this fever when we follow the facts without fear of favor. remembering that all lies stop where accountability starts. and that's your reality check. >> when there is accountability, it can make a difference. john avlon, thank you. new details about president biden's private conversation with the president of ukraine who told biden that u.s. threats against russia are not enough to prevent an invasion. and new questions this morning about security at the u.s. capitol after a staff member managed to enter the complex with a gun.

so one of the charges that gets levied at political candidates is you're a carpetbagger, you're not from around here. political candidates running for office in states or districts where they have no roots. but, if that's been the case historically, does it still matter now? cnn's dan merica joins us. you've been looking into this. what have you found? >> it has been hard to overcome that attack in the past and what we found is that it has been
5:24 am
easier over the last few years. this is 2022 election is ripe with people having to defend their local ties to the state or the area they want to represent. you have in georgia, herschel walker who was a famous running back for the university of georgia, having to defend the fact that he until recently lived in texas. in the pennsylvania senate race lone, in the republican primary, you have three candidates having to defend their ties including dr. oz and defending the fact he until recently lived in new jersey. and then you have in oregon, where nick kristof filed to run for governor there, he's having to defend the fact he has enough close ties to oregon to run for governor. all of this raises the question there are so many people with these questionable ties, do these charges really matter? and we sought to answer that question. and what we found is based on operatives and academics is that there are two reasons that these charges may not be as potent as they once were. the first is polarization. once you get past the primary,
5:25 am
most people are just looking for the d or the r next to your name on the ballot. and that has led people to overlook the fact that they don't really care if you're from around here or have close ties to a certain area. second is the nationalization of politics. the more nationalized races get, the more they're tied to the success of the biden administration or republicans in congress or a number of things we talk about all the time, the less people care about, you know, local issues, whether someone is born and raised in a certain area or they just recently moved to a state to run for office. in the other thing is that candidates take these very seriously. i reached out to a number of candidates and they quickly responded and defended their ties to the area and an example of this is the new york-elect -- new york mayor elect eric adams who people raise questions about whether he lived in brooklyn, he took reporters on a tour of his basement apartment including a look inside the fridge and his campaign argued no one really cares what's inside eric adams' fridge and they were right because he was now the mayor-elect of new york city.
5:26 am
>> one of these things, this is clear where the voters get to decide. we find out how much the voters care about this. dan merica, thank you very much. great reporting. great to see you. >> thanks. so we're learning more about president biden's talks with ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky. according to a ukrainian government official, zelensky privately told biden he doesn't believe the u.s. threatening russia with sanctions will be enough to deter vladimir putin from invading. zelensky it argues because the kremlin would have already considered the risk here. he proposed imposing sanctions up front and then delaying implementation of them if necessary. joining us now to discuss is cnn anchor and washington correspondent pamela brown. they seem to be at a difference on what to do here. why not take this approach that ukraine wants. >> right. it is interesting. if you look at the formal readout between the call between zelensky and biden, it looks as though they're in unison, but our reporting suggests that
5:27 am
zelensky is frustrated that he's not -- that president biden is not moving forward with sanctions against russia -- or the reason you laid out. that russia is already put this into the calculation, and that not acting now is going to be detrimental. but the u.s. is weighing what will happen if it does impose sanctions and how would it impact global prices at the pump. the energy market. that's something the u.s. is carefully considered as it looks at the menu of options of sanctions against russia because if it did move forward with more severe sanctions right now, it could really have a big impact at a time when we're already seeing inflation and high prices in the energy market. >> seems like ukraine and zelensky is concerned that there is going to be an invasion. he's warning of a bloody mas massacre. what is the u.s. thinking about the possibility of that? are they as concerned as ukraine? >> this is a huge foreign policy test for president biden. we all know what happened in 2014 with the annexation of crimea, by russia. and we know earlier this year
5:28 am
there was a time where russia was at the border and looked to be a threat. they receded. now as of october they're back there and it does seem like a very serious situation, you have the pentagon, small arms, turning the military there, this is clearly gotten the attention of the u.s. and has become a priority for president biden because if russia did invade, that would be -- that would be awful. that -- we heard time and time again from the administration that the sovereignty of ukraine is important, of course there is talk about years and years ahead of ukraine being part of nato. and so it would be really a catastrophe if that happened. >> it would be a front of a much greater war and we would have to see what the u.s. would do there. while you were here, and we're on the eve of this huge day, right, the army/navy game tomorrow, where, by the way, we have competing loyalties, which we'll explain in a moment, i want to share with our audience a fun project we have been collaborating on, part of an online video series where we cnn
5:29 am
anchors share family recipes, we share traditions, and in our case we do a little cooking with an eye to the fact that 'tis the season for football. ♪ >> i don't know if i have a potato masher. we have to put those on the list for christmas. >> go navy! >> it really does add something. okay. when you're cooking for the holidays, a lot of football at the holidays. so the biggest rivalry as far as we're concerned in college football is the army/navy game. i know for me it takes over the house. well, pam, you tell me -- >> my husband was a navy s.e.a.l. >> and my husband is a green beret. so we're going to kind of do, like, a holiday football situation. >> let's get cooking. >> i do not cook normally. so let me put that out there. i'm normally the supervisor. i especially don't cook when i'm with my husband because he, like, actually knows how to cook and makes fun of me.
5:30 am
especially on how i chop onions. let's see how i do. >> you don't have to peel it. >> i don't? >> you can -- you do after you cut into it. then you can peel. >> okay. that's so much easier than -- all these years. all these years. >> throw it all in. army lost for many years. so 2016, army finally won. very exciting. you were there. we should -- we should go. >> yeah. i mean, i workweekenweekends, t. >> okay, so there is no beans in this one. you could put beans. but this is, like, a cincinnati style chili and that's why when you look at the spices, i think it is a more complex flavor. i'm going to cut the lemons and
5:31 am
brianna will juice them because she's really good at juicing lemons. i'll do one just to -- >> okay, so it is like four ingredients. it is pretty easy, gin, syrup, lemon juice and bitters. >> with me in the kitchen -- >> cheers! >> cheers! >> scoop some chili on to that. >> yep. ♪ >> now, that is some good chili. >> it is going to last you through the football game. for christmas, we're going to visit family in texas. you're going to -- >> we're going to kansas to visit my husband's family which we haven't been there in so long because of the pandemic. >> look, pam, you can cook this for his family in kansas. >> i thinklike a buddy like you if they trust my cooking.
5:32 am
>> i'll come. >> come out to kansas. >> happy holidays. >> happy holidays. >> and cheers. >> go army, beat navy! we'll have to wait and see who wins tomorrow. the reason we chose chili mac, berman, is because it is the favorite mre, you know, the meals ready to eat, those pouch meals, of the u.s. military. so we were paying homage. our version obviously way better. >> i'm feeling a little bit of judgment from berman right now on my onion cutting. i'm just feeling it. maybe i'm a little insecure. i don't know. >> you are like a 12-star michelin chef compared to me. i had zero knowledge you were doing it wrong. i just assumed that was the right way. >> so much better. brianna was, like, no, that's not how you do it. what are you whipping up? you're doing something too, right? >> i'm not sure they're going to produce it, though. >> they are. >> what is your favorite family food tradition, i said, i don't have one but i can make nachos. and they're, like, well, why is that important to your family?
5:33 am
i'm like, it's not, but we like nachos. so that is sort of where we are. >> i have it on very good sourcing that it is going to be produced and hilarious. >> that's good. that's good to know. that's reassuring. i told brianna yesterday, pam, my loyalty for the army/navy game is up for sale. for the next 28 minutes, i'm taking bids. >> it is all about the navy. >> he says -- he's like, i don't have a dog in this fight. i was, like, i am your co-anchor. you do have a dog in this fight. >> yeah. >> you know, you're taking sides against the family if you root for navy. >> true. but i think you should root for the navy, that's all. >> it is a compelling argument brianna makes and i feel like i would be in trouble going forward. i'll take it under advisement. >> pam, thank you so much for doing that with me. i really appreciate it. >> it was so fun. breaking seconds ago, a brand-new snapshot of inflation in the u.s. we'll tell you what it is next. and why the parents of two shooting survivors are suing the school after a gunman's attack. when you really need to sleep you reach for the really good stuff.

ago on inflation in the united states. cnn chief business correspondent christine romans with the numbers. >> measuring that gut punch, john, that inflation gut punch that everyone is feeling, 39 years ago was the last time we had inflation running this hot. 6.8% annual overall consumer price index. that's a pretty hot number. you felt this in everything from cars to gasoline to food at home to food away, you've been feeling higher prices and this november number shows that. you strip out the volatile food and energy and you have 4.9% is the core rate. again, that is the highest since the 1980s. some context here, though, these are not the numbers we saw in the 70s or 1980 when you were looking at 11, 12, 13% inflation and, john, this is also a rear view mirror looking number. we got a chart that shows inflation going like this, but we know that in the past couple of weeks, energy in particular has moderated here. and we're getting all kinds of
5:39 am
evidence that the supply chain problems causing this inflation are starting to work themselves out. we also know that the fed has pivoted for its number one role here to be an inflation fighter heading into next year. so we're expecting the fed to start to unwind some of its stimulus into this economy, and maybe start tapping on the brakes next year to make sure this strong u.s. economy doesn't eve overheat and keep this inflation problem going here. this is the november vicpicture. inflation is pretty much the number one number in a strong u.s. economy that people are focused on. >> real question is this an inflexion point? 6.8 is very high. >> it is. >> if it is a step on to something much higher, you're talking possibility of crisis mode here. however, if it is as high as it gets and we have turned a corner and there are some signs in some areas we might, that's a different story. >> that is the biggest question in economics and in government right now. is this looking back, is in the
5:40 am

5:47 am
the neck at age 17, watching your best friend be shot down dead and viewing all this from the eyes and mind of a 14-year-old. that trauma is life-long. i doubt very much that this is something that can be recoverable over the long-term in any significant way, although you would hope that they can go on with their lives. >> now, your lawsuit alleges what, that the school should have done more to stop it, what? >> in the federal lawsuit, we allege that in effect they created a state created danger, they made it more dangerous by allowing the shooter, ethan crumbley, to continue to be in the school, even though they know he had written reams of documents threatening students, drawing diagrams of mass murder, searching on the internet for

ammunition having called in his parents telling them he desperately needed counseling and when the parents who are criminals themselves and provided the gun to their son, and i would bet knew what he was going to do by some of the text messages sent to them, when they refused to do anything, they just simply said, okay, you can go back to class now. and he walked out with a backpack filled with ammunition and a gun, walked into the bathroom and came out shooting. and shot and killed four students, wounded eight, and terrorized another american high school like the other 300 that have been terrorized since columbine, which i also have. >> i know you represented people after columbine. let me say, the parents have been charged at this point. you call them criminals. we'll see if they are convicted there. they have not yet been tried obviously. the school for their part says, look, that they asked the
5:49 am
parents to take the son home, the parents said no at that point, and the school felt that they had done what they can. >> i don't care. that's what this case is about. i don't think any reasonable person under these facts and circumstances would think that that was a reasonable action, especially when there are school police liaison that can also be brought in in these types of situations, if you have any doubt whatsoever. but, remember, the gun and ammunition were in hisquestioni, while they were telling the parents he desperately needed counseling, while they knew he was searching for more ammunition, while they knew he had reams of documents indicating that he was going to engage in some type of mass slaughter at least was thinking about it, he told them that was a video game, but that's enough information for any reasonable person to have done something. and that -- this suit is not about the money.
