8:00 am
thank you for the privilege of your time. and a good thursday morning to you from msnbc world head kwaerlts in new york city. on this veteran's day we start by honoring the men and women who have served our country. those of us who live in freedom will always be grateful to those who help preserve it. right now for that reason, we have our eyes on arlington national cemetery there in northern virginia. any moment president biden and first lady dr. jill biden will lay a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. it's the first veteran's day we're marking since withdrawing from america's longest war in afghanistan just a few months ago. when the ceremony starts, we will take you there live.
8:01 am
also some big stories you need to know about. inflation just hit a three decade high in october. the prices of food, gas, toys, clothes, all ballooning. and folks are frustrated. >> you just can't keep printing money without it making the money worth less. >> i guess it's something we keep talking about in the house. how to conserve, how to save. >> also this hour, the trial of kyle rittenhouse is underway right now. rittenhouse's testimony on wednesday during this hour can only be described as a roller coaster ride. this morning some of the attention is on the judge. we're going to dig into why. also some pandemic progress. nearly one million children younger than 12 have gotten that vaccine. but if we know anything about this pandemic, it's that it is unpredictable. new case clusters popping up
8:02 am
nationwide, public health experts are warning that a major new surge could hit around thanksgiving. just how bad it could get coming up in just a few moments. we are going to -- start by honoring those who serve. president biden's visit to arlington national cemetery. we are not involved in a major war for the first time in two decades. monica alba is at the white house. i want to bring in kourtney at the pentagon. monica, we'll start with you. we understand president biden has left 1600 pennsylvania avenue. he's going to be laying the wreath with the first lady any moment now. we can all imagine that his son, beau, who was a veteran will be front of mind today.
8:03 am
what should we expect to hear from president biden when he does speak a few minutes from now? >> undoubtedly, craig, this is a very somber and solemn day for president biden. he speaks so often about the memory of his son, beau. he did serve in iraq, and talks all of the time about the real service that many in the military have given in terms of their lives, the sacrifice, and we can expect that kind of tone from his remarks a little bit later this morning. he will first participate in this reflank ceremony. his first as commander in chief. this is something he'd done in other capacities. he's been to arlington many different times on different occasions with different titles. his first today in this veteran's day as president of the united states with the first lady, and we understand he just arrived there. so he will be there shortly. and it comes, of course, on this centennial, marking this
8:04 am
all-important moment of the tomb of the unknown soldier which we'll talk more about in a bit. and after that, in his remarks, the president will talk about this, but the tone and the context, the backdrop remembering that a few short months ago it was the president who ultimately decided to withdraw from afghanistan, take all the remaining troops out, and lives were lost in the process as well in that chaotic and messy system and process. and the president has said he still doesn't have any regrets about that decision. since then he has, of course, spoken with family members and continues to talk about the importance and, of course, the many contributions to society that veterans offer and today will be no different. the president will mark that, and he also is, of course, trying to do things through his administration that specifically benefit veterans, and i think you can expect the president to allude to that a little bit later this morning here as well. >> okay. monica, stand by. kourtney as monica mentioned,
8:05 am
this is not just any veteran's day. not only because t the first time in 20 years when we haven't been at war. this is also the 100th anniversary of that tomb of the unknown soldier there. for the first time, a sacred part of the tomb, usually visited by presidents or foreign dignitaries. it's been open to the public. folks have been laying flowers there. can you talk a little bit more about this important monument and this important moment, kourtney? >> that's right. so the tomb of the unknown soldier is the heart of arlington cemetery. when visitors come to the cemetery, one place they almost never miss is the tomb. and one of the most popular things to watch is the changing of the guard. it's a very solemn, quiet, meticulous ceremony that occurs every 30 minutes at the tomb. what is so different right now in recognition of 100 years
8:06 am
since that tomb opened, now members of the public are able to walk right up to it now for several days, just to recognize that centennial anniversary. people laying flowers on it. never able to get as close as they are right now. this is very -- this is a special moment for a lot of veterans. we have seen them pouring through for the last several days. many dignitaries coming through to recognize how significant this is. and, of course, you know, it comes as you mentioned, as you and monica were talking about, for the first time, the u.s. is not in an active conflict, but we have to point out that that doesn't mean that u.s. troops are not in harm's way all over the world. there are u.s. troops in iraq and in syria. they face threats on a nearly daily basis. there are u.s. troops in somalia. they're moving in and out of yemen. there are still troops in conflict areas, and in harm's way. this veteran's day, that is something that here in the pentagon that we still hear a
8:07 am
lot about. despite the fact that the war in afghanistan ended nearly -- about two months ago, troops still are in difficult situations, craig. >> all right. kourtney for us there at the pentagon. monica alba for us there at the white house. and to your point there, kourtney, you can see the piles and piles of flowers that have been laid at the base of the tomb of the unknown soldier. when the president and first lady arrive for that wreath laying ceremony, we'll go back to arlington national cemetery and also, of course, be there for the president's speech as well after the wreath laying. kourtney, monica, don't go far. we want to turn to other news for a few moments here. this morning the defense in the kyle rittenhouse trial is calling more witnesses after a dramatic day inside the courtroom. we heard testimony from a use of force expert. we got a big update on the timing of the trial itself. the judge says this trial could be finished as early as
8:08 am
tomorrow. but looming over the testimony continues to be the possibility of a mistrial. rittenhouse's attorney is requesting a mistrial with prejudice. meaning rittenhouse could not be tried again. gabe gutierrez is in kenosha with us. and i'm also joined by danny cevallos. gabe, we'll start with you on the ground. the judge says this thing could end tomorrow. take us through what we expect to hear before the trial ends. but also when the judge could make a decision on that request for a mistrial with prejudice. >> well, craig, as you mentioned, several developments. we do not know when the judge might rule on that motion for a mistrial with prejudice. but today's testimony actually began with a nod toward veteran's day. the judge saying aloud in court if anyone was a veteran, no one raised their hand except for the defense's first witness, dr. john black, a use of force
8:09 am
expert, and right now he is testifying about video in this case, offering an analysis. a detailed analysis of video in this case, and whether kyle rittenhouse fired in self-defense. his testimony is expected to continue for some time. then we expect to hear from these two other defense witnesses. craig, as you mentioned, a bit of a surprise this morning. before the jury was in the room, the judge updated the timeline. he said when he thought closing arguments could come monday or tuesday, he said he wasn't sure of the day, but he thought yesterday was thursday. that timeline is moved up. he says that now it's possible that this trial could wrap up tomorrow. but again, all that timing could change. but craig, as you said, this has been a very emotional trial. we're still waiting to hear what the judge might rule on the possibility of a mistrial. and then also how kyle
8:10 am
rittenhouse's emotional testimony yesterday, how that impacts the jury at this point. craig, back to you. >> all right. gabe, stand by. i want to play that moment on wednesday for our listeners on the radio. this is the moment when the judge rips into the prosecution. here it was. >> i was astonished when you began your examination by commenting on the defendant's post arrest silence. that's basic law. it's been basic law in this country for 40 years, 50 years. i have no idea why you would do something like that. i had heard nothing in this trial to change any of my rulings. so why -- >> testimony, your honor. >> pardon me? >> don't get brazen with me. >> my good faith dealing this morning after watching that testimony was you had left the door open a little bit. now we had something new, and i was going to probe it. >> i don't believe you. when you say that you are acting on good faith, i don't believe that. okay? >> danny, you spent a lot of
8:11 am
time in a lot of courtrooms. how often do you see a judge blow up like that in court? >> most recently about six months ago. it was me. i was the recipient in federal court, and fortunately no cameras in the courtroom. it does happen more and than you think. usually without the tv cameras. i can feel the prosecutor's pain. it's bad enough when it's pretty much in an empty courtroom. when you're in front of a national audience, it is agonizing. and we're only seeing a clip. that went on for it felt like 15 minutes of just him standing there and taking it. >> not to get into the weeds too much here, the legal weeds, but what essentially was that lawyer saying, and what was the judge saying? >> there were two major points here. the judge was saying that the lawyer yesterday committed really two blunders. one was that he had gone into an area that the judge had already precluded, because the prosecutor in his own opinion,
8:12 am
thought that a witness had opened the door. but the right thing to do would have been hey, judge, i think the door is open. we need to reevaluate the motion that you denied or the motion to preclude. the second thing is even more concerning, and it may be the grounds for this mistrial which is under advisement. that means a judge is basically saying well, yand decide it right now. i'm going to talk to my law clerks and do law research and find out whether or not this case should be tossed. it's because the prosecutor tried to at least twice go into the issue of whether or not kyle rittenhouse invoked his right to remain silent post arrest. that is a huge no-no, craig. every lawyer knows it to tries a criminal case. >> we want to go back to arlington national cemetery right now. the commander in chief, and the first lady, he's being flanked by the va secretary there. this is the laying of the wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier on this veteran's day.

the breathe ceremony
8:18 am
lay -- the wreath laying ceremony is now complete. >> and there you have it. president biden along with his v.a. secretary participating in that annual tradition in this country. honoring our veterans by laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. and this year, of course, as we've mentioned, that tomb taking on even more special significance at being the 100th anniversary of the tomb itself. and for folks who are wondering or who wonder every time this day of the year why we celebrate veterans on this particular day, it was the 11th hour of the 11th month in 1918 on the 11th day,
8:19 am
armistice day, that was, of course, the ceasing of the war. the world war i, and armistice day would become veteran's day. and that is why we honor our veterans on november 11th every year. our chief white house correspondent, excuse me, monica alba, i just gave you a promotion there. monica alba joining us once again from the white house, and courtney joining us from the pentagon. as we mentioned at the top of the hour, 20 years since we have not been involved in a major conflict, and i'm glad you pointed out that, of course, does not mean that we don't have men and women in uniform all over the world who are in harm's day. but we are not at war right now. the decision to withdraw from afghanistan, courtney, how has that affected our veteran community? >> it's had a real impact, and particularly on the mental
8:20 am
health. this veteran's day is a solemn day. we look at the pomp and circumstance at arlington cemetery. it's not always a easy day for veterans. this day is always potentially more difficult for veterans and not just those who served in afghanistan but across the board. i had a chance to talk about that. he said during the withdrawal from afghanistan, they saw about a 7% up tick in phone calls from veterans to their veteran crisis line. and that is people who are reaching out to need mental health support who are in potentially in even an emergency distress situations. and he said that was across the board. it wasn't just people who had served in afghanistan. it was even vietnam vets who were worried about their fellow veterans with the pictures and the video that was coming out of afghanistan that were just really difficult to watch, knowing what those men and women could be going through. so that has had a real impact on what the va has been doing since then. the secretary saying he has
8:21 am
emphasized and tried to prioritize mental health, because he's concerned about not just the withdrawal from afghanistan, but there tends to be more mental health concerns around the holidays. they're coming up. that's a time where some veterans may need to reach out and may need more help. this veteran's day it could be particularly tough for more men and women than in past years? >> i had not heard about the 7% uptick. that is troubling. we should point out the next time we see president biden, he will be speaking there at arlington national cemetery. that speech expected to start in just a few minutes. you can see the dignitaries who are taking their places now. the military band start the processional there. before we get into the program itself, monica alba, we have not gotten an advanced copy of president biden's remarks, but if you had to guess, what would
8:22 am
you guess we're going to hear from the commander in chief? >> so often, craig, president biden has taken on this role that he's very familiar with as a consoler in chief. as someone who speaks with incredible empathy and really can acknowledge the personal pain that families have experienced who have lost a loved one in our many wars, because he himself lost his own son and has experienced so much pain within his own family, his son beau, of course, dying of brain cancer years ago. but the president, of course, speaks about his service as an iraq war veteran, and i can expect and imagine because on other occasions like memorial day and other incredibly somber moments, the president has spoken about how his heart has been torn in half with grief when he thinks about his son, beau biden, and when he thinks about fellow parents who mourn the loss of their children, and
8:23 am
so i think you'll expect to hear him honor, of course, the incredible service and sacrifice while talking about the bigger significance, of course, of this day as only a commander in chief can do in these situations. >> as we take another look here at the tomb of the unknown soldier that was dedicated on this very day in 1921, it is, of course, among the most hallowed ground in arguably the most hallowed place in this country. arlington national cemetery, the tomb of the unknown soldier, a centerpiece. i had the opportunity to spend some time there just a few weeks ago. and in addition to all of the dignitaries you see assembled in that amphitheater who are getting ready to hear the president speak, you also have dozens of fathers and mothers who have lost sons and daughters in wars past.
8:24 am
this is part of an annual pilgrimage they make to arlington national cemetery. when the president starts his remarks, we'll take you back there live in just a few moments. monica, courtney, don't go far. the other big story today, almost 1 million elementary school children have already gotten the covid shots. will that be enough to stop new surges we're seeing in different pockets of the country somebody also, higher prices just about everywhere. gas prices are bananas. >> i don't need much sleep anymore either. >> everything is more expensive across the board. >> we're going to break down what's behind the record inflation. where people are struggling, and the white house's plan to try and get things under control. we're getting destroyed out there. we need a plan! right now, at t-mobile, customers on magenta max can get the new iphone 13 pro... and t-mobile will pay for it! upgrade to the iphone 13 pro... on us.

the white house now says nearly 1 million children under the age of 12 have gotten their first vaccine shots, and another 700,000 have appointments already booked for their first dose. this comes as cases among children remain extremely high. in fact, according to the american academy of pediatrics, more than 107,000 child cases were added in the last week. that's the 13th week in a row that cases among children have been above 100,000. i want to turn now to the president of the american academy of pediatrics, dr.
8:29 am
veers. before we dig into this, i understand you're also a veteran. thank you for your service on this veteran's day. >> thank you. thank you for having me. it was an honor to serve the navy as a pediatrician. >> we have 1 million children that have gotten the first shot, and this is a trend we should expect to see continue? >> it's incredibly encouraging, actually. you know, for a couple reasons. one is that we know there are families out there who are eager for their children to be protected against the coronavirus, and it means that we're getting the vaccine out there, and available to them. and i expect in terms of trends, we probably will see what we saw with adolescence. there's a group of families who are very eager, ready to get their children vaccinated right away, and want to make sure we're there and available for them. then we have another group of families who have questions and want to take a little time to have their questions answered,
8:30 am
and we're going to make sure we're there for those families as well. >> what do you say to those parents that you mentioned, the parent who is are still justifiably concerned in some cases, perhaps, about the vaccine and having their children be among the first to get it? >> it's a couple things. first, i'm a parent, too. i have to teenage children. they both are fully vaccinated. i made sure i had my questions answered before they were vaccinated. that's the first thing i would say. it's okay to have questions and please reach out to your pediatrician or trusted medical provider to have those questions answered. and i think when i talk to families about this, there are two reasons that i recommend the vaccine. the first, which is really probably the most important thing as a parent is that this is a safe and effective vaccine that can protect your child against something that can be a very serious illness in children. and i think the second thing is
8:31 am
that by getting vaccinated, all of us, kids or adults, we're not just protecting ourselves, but we're protecting our communities and those around us, particularly now those little ones under five who aren't yet eligible to be vaccinated. >> let's talk masks. you know what? we're going to have to cut the conversation short. i am so sorry. >> no worries? . >> president biden is beginning his remarks at arlington national cemetery. let us watch. let us listen. >> please remain standing for the invocation given by the chaplain, national director of chaplain service for the department of veterans affairs. >> let us pray. al mighty and loving god, we come before you this day to honor our nation's veterans. those men and women who have
8:32 am
bravely given of themselves on behalf of all of us as a nation. throughout our nation's history, you, god, created and designed each of our nation's veterans with unique gifts, abilities, talents, and values which would guide and direct them to a unified calling and mission. the defense of our nation's freedoms. and we are ever so grateful for those men and women who sacrificially chose to leave the comforts of family, friends, home, and security to use their god-given gifts and abilities for the most noble mission of the preservation of our nation. our nation's veterans have faced horrific challenges on land, sea, and air.

all of it. it's an economic reality we've all been feeling. we just learned the consumer price index surged 6.2 % from a year ago. that means inflation in october was the highest since 1990. if you want an idea of how long that's been, president george h.w. bush was in office. nelson mandela was released from prison, and sha nad o'connor's nothing compares to you was the song in america. president biden argues the money from the just passed infrastructure bill should help. he's going to sign the bill on monday. meantime, the economic pain from it all a growing avalanche that folks are trying to outrun. >> what i've been doing is buying a little bit less and just trying to stretch it more. >> everything, going up. cheese, milk, hair color,
