>>joining us now as you can see with some reaction east bay congresswoman. barbara lee going to be with you you watched the debate, no was there. a clear winner in your view. >>oh yes, the clear winner of course senator kamala harris first lsu demonstrated that he will bring integrity and honesty and stability to the white house vice president his distortions in the way manipulated facts were was very larry and 211,000 people have died from covid-19. he is the of the task force to address covid-19. and soak senator harris really forced him answer the question and he could not dance the question because the he in many ways he and donald trump. and the lack
8:17 pm
of their leadership is responsible for 211,000 people. parish and dying from this horrific pandemic. 30 million people who lost their job and millions who have contracted the virus so i this was like i well the country saw who was responsible for what has taken place during this terrible terrible period. >>congresswoman obviously you're a democrat on team kamala but some people call vice president pence the trump translator. he says the same things essentially that the president says but in a calmer manner with softer tone. do you think that the vice president was able to change any undecided mines maybe some suburban voters who are still on the fence. >>no i don't when you look at the disrespect in many ways that he had for a senator they're trying to get her to
8:18 pm
answer. yes questions, i mean her unprofessional and how disrespectful that and so i believe those who are on the fence. will come to say, vice president biden and senator harris. or the grown and we'll leave this country into addressing the covid pandemic in a in a methodical way who will help create good paying jobs and bring this economy back into will unify the country. believe anyone. could be read tonight after my is presentation that i think it's important for them are and she didn't answer many of the questions and it was real and they are and i just have to say the question about the peaceful transfer of power he can answer that question you want they're going to win, i mean any candidate in a
8:19 pm
democracy, the peaceful prayer for prout we even say he could accept that. >>congressman lee obviously representing of the east bay senator harris of course from berkeley. we're well aware of her in the bay area her prosecutorial chops do you think one of the biggest challenges she had tonight was to convinced the rest of america she was likable that. if for any reason she were to take over as president that they would feel comfortable with her that she achieved that. >>she did and we know senator to aj harris to be one who is smart. she has integrity. she has the passion but she stop she broke air the route with the american people and i think tonight and we know what she has done in terms of her support for consumers taking on wall street. she was very clear that they were on the
8:20 pm
side and she is on the side vice president biden is on the side of the american people and not wall street and she's a comet a prosecutor and i think that her skills as a prosecutor we're very evident tonight, but also her compassion and her understanding what every family needs in america in terms of health care in terms of the ability to pay the rent to take care of their children and their families this you really understand the needs of the american people. >>we're out of time congresswoman but quickly certainly a trailblazing moment, the first woman of color on this grand stage. what do you think this means from a historic standpoint tonight. >>well, you know i got involved politics through campaign of the first african-american woman elected to congress congresswoman shirley chisholm who for president and i think especially our young people. are you girls of color. our young african-american girls.
8:21 pm
we'll say that it's possible to be the vice president is possible to be on the national stage the type of of competence that she show and that she is breaking many many glass ceilings for women and for younger women to really move forward with their lives and she is force of nature to be reckoned with. and we saw that tonight and i'm very proud of senator harris course was born in oakland i've known her for many many years that support or to campaigns and so i think this is historic moment, and she recognizes the importance of this moment, and she challenging those who you know we have. we have of the rate >>to really begin to understand that those have to be dismantled in >>black woman, woman of indian
8:22 pm
descent. can also be the vice president of this country. >>all right representative barbara lee we appreciate your time as always thank you for joining us tonight. thank you thank you. >>now on the flip side if you ask top republican leaders who won this debate will their answer pence in a runaway president trump tweeting after the debate concluded mike pence one big according to south carolina. senator lindsey graham an outstanding job by vice president mike pence showcasing the differences between trump pence and biden harris mike pence was calm informed and made a lot of sense a home run tonight for the trump pence ticket. >>you're watching tonight's debate of course our catherine heenan of inside politics. >>here with more on that. hi catherine high grand yeah, so what did they think about the one and only vice presidential debate. our analysts were under wound on the whole from the fact the moderator just
8:23 pm
wasn't cutting people off to the fact that a lot of questions really not clearly answered. and in some cases harris and by pants vice president pence under a lot of pressure to have a good night did that happen. here's part of our conversation. >>i think i think that this what this debate was completely about the about the pandemic and all the attempts to sort of. as a left wing socialist what have you i mean they were they were what and had to do. but it is, but it's because he was playing with less than a full deck in terms of all with the kind of car she had had a the end of the day. >>you need to say certain number of sayings about kamala harris. and he has a calmer demeanor than her. there's no one who can logically say that she's more compared to be president then hand and so what he had to do say who she is saying what her most
8:24 pm
>>put the spotlight on my own on how. >>what amounts to hiding by where you can't you don't know what he does until you elect him. and pointing out that they are policies won't help the economy. i think there's a perceptual gap that's going on there seems to be in some ways a concern amongst the politicians and those that are running that is oblivious to most people they're trying to navigate this crisis this pandemic they're worried about their jobs and their houses. they're worried about their livelihood your household you would think the president and his team would go harder about the economy all the polling has indicated previously. >>that was a strong suit for them, but they seem somewhat oblivious to that that this pandemic this infection. it is upsetting the whole apple cart. >>and we will hear more from our analysts coming up at 9.10 o'clock tonight, one of my questions do they think there will be another presidential debate. it was not unanimous
8:25 pm
grant and vicki. >>all right appreciate it. catherine and thanks to all our analysts by the way kron four's of course your local election headquarters this election season. and if you're scoring at home just 27 days now until the november election. >>and a field flooded evacuations. underway. hurricane delta making a mess as it takes aim at the gulf coast plus fire crews, increasing containment on the glass fire in the north bay. but a little bit
8:26 pm
8:27 pm
8:28 pm
>>the glass fire burning in the north bay has scorched more than 67,000 acres now tonight containment is up to 62% more than 600 homes have been destroyed and more than 13,000 structures remain threatened. >>they hope for rain around the bay area is fading unfortunately obviously terrible news for firefighters and everybody else chief meteorologist lawrence karnow is here lawrence there was some real hope that's maybe saturday. we would not get a fire season ending rainstorm but at least something to help yeah certainly be nice to get a couple raindrops in the bay area unfortunately right now looks at least like the first system may just entirely misses out there now we've got the fog we'll see a little drizzle. >>from the system out there right now, but that is about it the temperatures in the 50's and the 60's a nice fall feel to outside today, all
8:29 pm
right, here's the long-range model now this model yesterday was bringing rain on the coastline or the other models was keeping it off the coast now they coincided and this one looks like this was the losers it looks like the system is going to kind of cut off start to drag to the south in fact it gets pretty close and you can see it off the coastline by friday afternoon but then moves further south all the way down in southern california. we miss it we may catch just the southern edge of this next one that could bring a few scattered light showers mainly in the north bay as we head in towards saturday. but after that guess what high pressure builds in behind it we start to talk about those offshore winds and high fire danger. i think that will play out well into next week matter of fact maybe even a stronger wind event those offshore winds and dangerous fire conditions late next week too. coming up danger on duty when a man walks into an lapd station. >>and goes for the officer's gun. >>plus the president touting an experimental drug for his quick covid recovery but was
8:30 pm

8:33 pm
2016. there are still 12 days left for residents to register there. registration numbers have also set a record in san francisco and turnout is expected to set a record kron four's dan kerman reports from san francisco's outdoor voting center which is in front of the bill graham civic auditorium with city hall tearing down in the background, san francisco's outdoor election center is open for business in front of the bill graham civic auditorium. >>here people preferring to vote in person before their neighborhood polling place opens on election day can do that. others who have already filled out their mailin ballot. can drop it off at one of 2 drop boxes. >>the mail yesterday on day for and we fell out. i never missed a single shot >>ballots went out in the mail on friday and already 12,000
8:34 pm
san franciscans have completed and return those ballots. those numbers are higher than we at this point in the process. so we're probably about 2 to 3 times myers party turns are concerned whether you put your completed ballot in a city designated drop us mailbox or turn it into your neighborhood polling place on election day. you can track that ballot on the san francisco elections website. officials say this year's election will be historic for san francisco we've increased about 20,000 registered voters in our our count since the march election. so right now in san francisco 517,000 registered voters. right now that's the highest number of registered voters would have 4 election. in the city's history and come election day they're expecting a record turnout as well above the 81% that turned out in 2008. when barack obama was first elected president. >>what you can drop off your completed ballot here at the
8:35 pm
bill graham civic auditorium elections officials say your best bet is still a u.s. post box the blue ones also they say if you have not received your mail in ballot by friday. call the elections office in san francisco. dan kerman kron 4 news. >>our big story tonight, president trump is crediting an experimental drug with helping his recovery from covid-19 is suggesting also his diagnosis could be a blessing in disguise for the nation's battle against the pandemic but. at this point there really is no way for the president or his doctors to know whether the drug is responsible for all of we want to welcome in the chairman of the department of medicine for ucsf doctor bob wachter. >>doctor watching thanks for being with us again we'll get to the regeneron issue momentarily but last night you made waves on national tv for suggesting to rachel maddow that president trump could be mentally adversely affected
8:36 pm
because drug see is on particularly the sterile obviously you've noted that you're not sure but that's a i'll ask you after seeing the president in his video message today and knowing what we know how do you think the president is doing. >>well i it's hard to diagnose through the video so. it would be better if i was seeing him in person, but in terms of what we saw in the video his personality seemed to be him and i certainly didn't detect any signs that he he was altered from what what is normal baseline as he also parent that look pretty good from a breathing standpoint, which is those are the 2 main worries that if the virus. is taking off he would probably get short of breath and that would be the biggest sign that he might be you might be getting worse and that was a concern today or to go certainly after he came off
8:37 pm
the helicopter and walked up the stairs, he looked very short of breath, but today he looked better and his mental status. i think look pretty good. >>so let's get to that regeneron of the president touting this and i are talking about making it available to everybody. is that realistic an end as the jury still out on an regeneron and obviously he's also the president is is experiencing a cocktail of things does appear that steroids and is is this rights. >>well this is why we do clinical trials because you know first for one person to take one medicine and do what seems to be pretty well says virtually nothing about whether that medicine was effective. that's why we study 10's of thousands of patients to figure this. this sort of thing most people with covid do you know the overall mortality rate is is 0.6% for
8:38 pm
someone the president's age and risk groups is might have been closer to 5 or 10% and so he still had a 90% chance of doing well so is absolutely no the we can't look at what happened to him and not out of the woods by the way has got another week at risk and you could still do poorly but even if he does well we can't look at that and say the medicine made the difference on top of that the medicine is pretty early in its testing phase and we actually don't know for sure that it's effective although it's promising it it was not unreasonable to to give it a try with him is on to other medicines. remdesivir and dexamethasone that are far better evidence behind them and if anything. contribute to making a better. it would more likely be one of those 2, but it may very well be that the antibody help we have to see what these clinical trials show as far as making it available to everyone and making it free for everyone that's actually a very tricky
8:39 pm
judge direct to manufacture it could be very hard to for them to develop enough doses to get out there and the estimated cost could be in the thousands of dollars not clear to me how they're going make that free. >>i know your doctor not a politician, but those 2 things are intertwined here and i want to talk big picture for a second. in an unprecedented move the highly respected new england journal of medicine today came out against the current administration saying quote the editors note that although we came into this crisis with enormous advantages, our current political leaders have not demonstrated that they are i'm sorry have demonstrated that they're dangerously incompetent. what do you make of that. >>i think you're seeing that throughout the scientific community a science magazine which is also never done that has done the same thing and i think i feel much of it myself i started the pandemic trying very hard not to be but of course it turns out to be both the scientific and political process and problem and the response to the pandemic has
8:40 pm
been at a national level has been terrible. it has cost 10's of thousands of lives. i know that in san francisco where i think the political response has been generally quite good we've now lost a 108 people to covid which is tragic but 108 people that los angeles 6,000 new york 25,000 and if the entire country mirrored san francisco's death rate. we would have saved about a 150,000 lives so i think if we had strong consistent national leadership and emphasis on following the science matt king getting testing programs out there is no question that we would have been far better off save lots of lives and i think many scientists have found that they just can't sit on the sidelines anymore not say that. thank doctor we always look forward to hearing your thoughts. >>and your thank you doctor. bob from ucsf appreciate having us.
