tv   The 11th Hour  MSNBC  December 27, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PST

11:00 pm
a situation where republicans can control but don't keep it on the impeachment strategy. >> think you both for joining us on the last word, that is tonight's last word, the 11th hour starts right now. good evening once again, day 3 42 of the biden administration, tonight, as the "variant drives a winter covid surgeon every quarter of this nation and frustration levels growing, right along with the number of cases, the cdc is out with brand-new guidance for anyone infected by the virus, no shortening the recommended time for isolation, from 10 days with people with covid-19, to five days if asymptomatic, followed by five days where you bask if you're around other people. the latest data shows the new cases are averaging more than
11:01 pm
200,000 per day, and the new york times says reports from 14 states indicates the current covid surge is worse the last winters. earlier this evening, anthony fauci explained the thinking behind the new cdc recommendations. >> if so many people simultaneously catching it, you want to make sure amongst essential workers that you get people out there much sooner, i mean cutting it in half, five days of isolation and come out and wear a mask for the rest of the time, you can keep people safe from getting infected, if you are still infected, but at the same time, i can you back to what might be an essential function in society. on balance, if you the safety of the public and the need to have society not disrupted, this was a good choice. >> is is just what many businesses said they needed to
11:02 pm
keep operating, case in point airlines, our staffing shortages due to overcrowding that a huge impact. more than 1000 u.s. flights were canceled, doctor anthony fauci was asked about vaccine mandates for domestic air travel. he clarified the earlier comments that suggested that was under consideration.>> it's unlikely you would see that in the foreseeable future, what i states under consideration, people take a leap and say well, it's what happened tomorrow or the next week. we consider all options we talked about what we need to do for public health. meanwhile, coachable fans are taking a huge hit from covid, at least three bowl games have been scrapped, the second straight year that games are being caught off because of the virus. what veteran sports reporter said that teams with a lot of sports are facing questions about upcoming events. >> there already worried about the final four, we are kind of
11:03 pm
planning is if we are going to have the final four, but we honestly don't know. our plan is to go to the super bowl thinking three or four times about this. >> most anybody trying to travel is likely to look to get tested for covid first but good luck, the supply has lagged behind the man, both for rapid at home kids and those requiring lab work with all-too- familiar longline's continuing after christmas. president biden met with the nations governors about the surge, he offered more federal support it said that states will have to take the lead on controlling the outbreak. >> there is no federal solution, this gets solved at the state level, seeing how tough it was for some folks to get a test as we can chose that we have more work to do, clearly not enough, we would've got harder and quicker if we could have, the steps we have to take to have authorized
11:04 pm
tests, we are now able to purchase 500 million at home test to be sent to the american people for free when they requested, and we will continue to use the defense production act to make as many tests as possible. >> keeping an eye on the latest developments in the january 6 investigation, his current spokesman, is now suing the house select committee as well as j.p. morgan, over access to his financial records, they subpoenaed him in last november, saying that he organized and add campaign tried to boost attendance at to the rally on the lips. with that, eugene daniels, for to go, then the professor of epidemiology at ucla's fielding school, and paul butler, a former prosecutor at the justice department, currently a professor at georgetown law, good to see all of you, and on one hand, the
11:05 pm
number of infected americans, and it can be extraordinarily disruptive, and the and that means were transmission in illness and death and very worried after the change the rules for medical, given where we are now, are you comfortable with the new cdc recommendation?>> i think these guidelines are incomplete and once again just pandering to businesses, into the economy, and the economy, which is very important, but leaving behind public health, we know this virus is very contagious, the best thing to do is to take this out of commission, and sideline people so they are not able to continue to transmit it. the uk, for example, used rapid test, regularly, shortening their time of isolation and
11:06 pm
rapid tests, they require them to rapid test out, these guidelines are based on's scarcity of rapid tests, these guidelines would be just fine if we had five days, plus rapid testing out, but at this point, we are leaving it up to everybody's judgment, and it could potentially be a big problem and give us a lot more opportunity for spread of the virus. >> i think we all know somebody who thinks they have it or have had it in they could not get a test, do they stay home, do they not stay home, it is a tough decision to make. we heard the president say there is no federal solution, i want to read what the wall street journal editorial page is saying about that. if mr. biden is making a rhetorical turn towards coping with covid since the virus is here to stay, this would be a welcome shift, he was wrong when he suggested that any
11:07 pm
politician had the power to control the pandemic. if this is the way that mr. biden is going that he should notify the supreme court to have osha withdraw the overbroad mandate, a lot of attention of the right, saying that trump was slammed for similar remarks. is the white house saying anything about his comment, the impression that he might be changing his view of how we contain the pandemic? >> i don't think they have said anything that is is something that we can change, started here just a little bit, not from president biden, but from folks within the administration talking about how we have to live with the pandemic, and dr. anthony fauci said weeks and weeks ago, every year we will probably have to get some kind of shot, when we think about how we get a flu vaccine, the same with covid. part of what they are attempting to do with these new cdc guidelines is look at the science but also figure out a
11:08 pm
way to make sure that people don't spread it and make sure the economy continues and i think the doctor is right, the idea of having rapid tests is much more important that i think we are talking about, demonstration talked about having 500 million, excuse me, but that's not enough when you talk to doctors and health experts, you think about people who want to rapid test out and want to be able to see families, before i came to see my family, you couldn't really find a rapid test, i had to get a pcr test because you know more information but also could defy the rapid test. the administration does have work to do when it comes to that, they want people to realize and they have come to realize, the changes that we wanted to do over the last year, have not been realistic. especially the right-wing of american society, not wanting to do those things, so we have
11:09 pm
to find more of a middle ground. >> you have to be able to separate, and, the political and the medical part of this, there has been legitimate criticism that we are behind on having testing behavior. i would play something that claire mccaskill said on this network. >> the failure of america to have free available rapid tests is really being shown right now. what happened? who dropped the ball on rapid, cheap tests for america? i need the biden administration to step up and fix that today. >> obviously, the problem is, you can't fix it today, the time to have fixed it was months ago, ann, and the ministrations of they finalize the deal for 500 million test, they will get them out to people next month, but where does that leave us?
11:10 pm
how significant is that, given where we know where overcrowding is now? >> -- oh, my kron omicron is now. >> we are going to have a tsunami of cases, we will be swimming in rapid test, we should be, everybody should have one just like they do in many other countries, europe is done a very good job at this. if you're going out to dinner with friends, you should be able to rapid test. if you're going to have a gathering with people, you should be able to rapid test, if you're going to work you should be able to, if your child is going to school you should be able to rapid test, we need to be able to have information for action available not only for public health but for the general public to be able to make decisions about their risk and safety, until they are available to us, we are still to be operating without enough
11:11 pm
information. >> i want to go back to the politics of this, but let me ask you paul, about the january 6 investigation, speaking of politics, from the latest move of atrial pili to slow it down, clearly but also where the house committee is going with this. what do you see that they are looking for by focusing on budowich's bank records? >> looking to see if he played a role in financing the insurrection, turning into hundred and 40 pages of documents and testified for 4 hours, and that raised even more questions, including whether this guy funneled $200,000 to undisclosed sources, to finance the attempted coup, and the committee is trying to uncover
11:12 pm
those sources. they subpoenaed his bank records, and they sued to try to keep them secret, almost losing that litigation, and probably a moot point, the committee likely already has the records, and they said elysse produced a court order on christmas eve, telling them not to turn over the records, that they would, so trump cronies usually go by his playbook by trying to run out the clock but this time that strategy probably did not work.>> new reporting out that the republican governors of arkansas, florida, iowa, kansas, tennessee, have extended of employment benefits to people who have lost their job over these vaccine mandates. other republicans could soon follow, and the white house is about to defend the vaccine mandate to the supreme court. is there any kind of white house plan for the mandates, given the political divisions, what are you hearing from inside the administration?
11:13 pm
>> i think this is a demonstration that feels very confident in this mandate, they hate the word mandate, they like to call it a requirement, it is a vaccine requirement, and with testing added to it, with their trying to do and attempting to have done for weeks and weeks, is making sure that they are fighting against republican talking points, as they put it, about it being a mandate and forcing people to get the vaccine when there is a testing aspect, but getting testing is not as easy as the administration wants it to be, they have a lot of work to do there. plan b, i don't know if it has been shared with any of us reporting lies, but one of the things that the administration has done or proven to do, even in the campaign, they make a decision and they go full steam ahead and that has continued
11:14 pm
this entire administration, that something that we are going to continue to see. they feel that this requirement, this mandate, is sound, they feel confident in that, whether that is true, we will see but they feel like it is plan a and they are sticking to it. >> paul, let's talk about the legality of this in the fight that is going to ensue. and also another part of this, which is that with omicron, i heard it over the holiday break, a lot of people have heard it from folks that are not vaccinated, see what's the point of getting vaccinated, because all of these breakthrough cases are happening anyway, you get vaccinated and you're still not protected, that doesn't play into it legally, but that does push the right and their cause, what they believe is the righteous cause. >> that's right, so what biden is done is to force federal
11:15 pm
government employees and contractors to either take the vaccine and probably soon the booster, or force them to submit to formal, regular covid tests, the supreme court has never formally ruled on whether he could go farther, and require every person in this country who is medically able, to get the vaccine and to get the booster, i think there is old case law that suggests that president biden probably does have that authority, but so far, they seem to be going with the method of trying to control people who are reluctant, rather than to force them, beyond people who work with the federal government. >> are there folks within the medical and scientific community who have been looking at the beginning of this, for answers and trying to push
11:16 pm
governments, whether of the state or the federal level, to do what they thought was scientifically sound, have they largely given up on mandates at this point? is there a sense that this was the only thing or is there maybe still the only thing to get us where we need to go, it was listening to dr. anthony fauci who seem to suggest that it was a good idea for mandates on getting a domestic flight, and he said look, it's one of the things we talk about, we talked about a range of things essentially. where is the thinking on mandates, and where it realistically fits into fixing this problem? >> realistically, mandates are going to get people to do things that they don't necessarily want to do or are maybe putting off, i think the mandates are still going to make a big difference. i don't want to get on an airplane, especially if we don't have mandates for high- quality mass, we don't have
11:17 pm
mandates for vaccines, we don't have strong quarantine and isolation protocols at this point. i think the only thing we can count on at this point is to have mandates put in place to make sure that we have at least some public health safety in place, as he is going to be very important for people to remember that these mandates are not going to be enough, everybody's going to have to think about these new guidelines, we are all going to be a little bit less safe, we are going to have people who are going to be infectious, able to leave isolation and basically the way with quarantine at this point, so what we can do at this point is be very cautious, where high quality mask i get boosted vaccinated, and do everything you can to limit your risk. >> delta has sent notification had to get on the plane now to italy, you have to have a k n- 95 or sfp 2, i'm not quite sure
11:18 pm
with that one is, that's high- quality, that's what you're holding up.>> this is it. >> i've upgraded mine, to make. eugene daniels, doctor, take care out there. what the new cdc quarantine guidelines mean for the nation's ever so weary healthcare workers. we have an er doctor standing by. nearly one year after the right at the capital, we have a look at where it is going, and the politics and state, here are the monday night. night.

11:22 pm
the minimizing of the quarantine period, do you agree with that as airline groups have recommended?>> when i get a recommendation from the medical people i follow it. >> just days after the cdc shorten the quarantine period over the objective -- objections of many of those workers, it cuts isolation time and half for five days for asymptomatic people, as hospitals are reaching the breaking point across the country, facing surging cases of the transferring variant. a full-page ad in the star begging people to get vaccinated, boosted, tested and massed, it warned we can't do this alone, we have more patience than we have beds in
11:23 pm
her hospitals. dr. stephen sample is back with us, for indiana, and a faculty member at indiana university school of medicine. this is where we are, back to having healthcare professionals bag people to do the right thing, what are you seeing in your hospital right now?>> we are seeing about the same thing, a ton of cases, super busy, every day is busy, no good days anymore, no days when you leave the hospital and say it's not so bad, we would be busy without covid right now, just with the every day winter illnesses and sick people out there, but when you had covid, every day feels like a draining nightmare. >> you tweeted this, if there was every question in the age of modern broken medicine, healthcare workers are
11:24 pm
expendable cogs in a ever giant wheel, as evidence by the guidance from the american heart association and the cdc, back to work you all and screw team safety. would you say that now that they are shortening the quarantine period, and i apologize for the reading of that, i'm sure you could do a better. >> i am less mad than that on christmas day. >> but you were ticked off, we are frustrated for you, without a doubt, when i see more headlines in newspapers of doctors saying just do the right thing, do the right thing, but at that moment, what put you to that point? >> within a couple of days, we got guidance from the cdc that basically said, if your hospitals are really bad, you can go back to work, suck it up and do it, and healthcare workers across the board, doctors and nurses and
11:25 pm
respiratory therapist, and staff, we've been used and abused and begging people, my message hasn't changed, i'm not sure why, tv anymore, i've been saying the same thing for two years, and a portion of the population heard it any portion didn't, and in succession the cdc said you can go back to work if it's really bad, even if you're mildly symptomatic if the hospitals really bad, and the american heart association had new cpr guidelines, don't withhold cpr until you get your proper ppa -- ppe, but cpr is messy, lots of fluids and aerosols and to suggest that on top of all the stuff that we just have to do with, the medical community, our heads just about exploded, and felt like another kick in the ribs. now that they have shortened
11:26 pm
the word heated isolation measures for everybody, i'm a little less bad, although i do have some fundamental problems with what's going on right now.>> i certainly don't want a pylon but i think i will little bit right now, and the attorney general in your state, who opposes vaccine mandates, said, why he opposed mandates, he told a reporter he doesn't believe the numbers anymore. and we don't want you to stop coming on television, as i would like to think there are people out there listening, but you know, does that describe a lot of what you hear and what fuels the frustration? >> it does, our ag, he's never met a scientific consistent -- consensus, he would question, he's wrong on the environment, he's wrong on this, but for him to get on tv in the middle of a pandemic and say he endorses some public health conspiracy
11:27 pm
in his own state, it turns out todd, you're the attorney general, if you think there is a conspiracy, it seems like you have the power to do something about that, or do you believe it, i don't think you do. he's fanning the flames and feeding the fuel of people, talking to his base and people that are going to vote for him the next time he goes out. he's actively making it political, he's in court right now trying to stop vaccine mandates, when this is looked on by history, people like todd and his ilk, they will be directly responsible for the deaths of human beings, his fellow hoosiers, it's ridiculous that he would go on tv and say that. i'm over it. >> yes, over it. i'd like to and on the positive note, there sing in south africa, they are past the peak and on the downside of the
11:28 pm
overgrown surge, and there's a sense that this is what is going to follow in europe and the united states, and i wonder if there's anything out there that gives you hope? >> i hope so. i hope we follow south africa's trend, but myself and others of us out there kind of are putting her ear to the ground, i don't know that i really trust south africa's data right now, they are in the southern hemisphere, it is their summer right now, it's wintertime here, and they have a really different population in terms of vaccinated and previously infected, even different variants that went through south africa, so i don't know if we can directly extrapolate that. i think it might be a longer and slower burn here, my hope is that so many of us will get infected that at the end of this, many more of us have some degree of underlying immunity. what that means for me and my colleagues in the emergency departments and the icus, means is going to suck in january, i
11:29 pm
will tell you that right now. >> that was exactly the threat of hope i was hoping for, but i do appreciate it. >> okay great. [ laughter ]>> we have to be reminded of it, sometimes we needed to be reminded of it. to do the right thing, even people who've been doing it all along, i do appreciate that dr. stephen sample, we remain grateful for you taking the time. thank you so much. in just 10 days we will mark the one year anniversary of the attack on capitol hill, a look at the new clues at where the january 6 investigation is heading. igati
11:30 pm
11:31 pm
11:32 pm
11:33 pm
as we approach the anniversary of the attack on the u.s. capital, the january cyst committee is expanding its investigation. new reporting from the guardian indicates that members are honing in on conversations that trump had with allies hours before the riot, congressman bennie thompson said the panel will open an inquiry into donald trump's phone call seeking to stop joe biden certification from taking place january 6, hours before the insurrection. and they suggested that house investigators had started looking to investigate his demand that joe biden not be certified as president on january 6. david plus, and mike
11:34 pm
murphy, plouffe, at the university of southern california, and cohost of the hacks on tap podcast. what does it tell you about the direction they are heading in, do you see a criminal referral coming maybe even against trump? >> again, i am not a lawyer think god, but i think a criminal referral is more likely than not, because the evidence is piling up, to their credit, the committee has been quite aggressive, they should follow the money and they should try to get that narrow band of phone calls. whether or not it has a huge earthquake effect on the election because we are so tribal and dug in, i wish i was more hopeful about, but to get justice, if there is criminal things that deserve referring, my gut guesses there are, on
11:35 pm
the pattern of behavior we've seen from some of these characters on the lunatic fringe of my own beloved republican party, i hope they do it and i hope we learn everything, and i would be surprised if trump is more connected to it that has been proven so far. >> a nervous question that people are asking, learning in a taimi -- timely manner, in the washington post, they say there is a plan to hold public hearings the new year, a rough timeline has them stretching into spring, interim report the summer, final report somewhere ahead of you know him -- november election, but the fear that it will drag on too long to be effective. are they moving quickly enough in your estimation?>> this is about whether democracy survives or not, we would like to know it as quickly as possible, but there is a real
11:36 pm
deadline here, to have the report itself, findings and recommendations in any criminal referrals, i agree with mike, it seems more likely than you might have thought, they have it in time to prevent the next coup attempt, the 2024 presidential election, we are focused on next november, the timing really here is preventing that, and there has to be justice, and accountability, including i believe criminal referrals, otherwise it's going to happen again and it probably will be successful, and i hope the hearings are prime time and i hope they pick times of the day were the country can view them, understand most of that will be through social media, but these are going to be pretty high profile events i think and i agree with mike, we are very tribal, at the end of the day, it is less about any party gaining advantage, it is whether the pro-democracy side of the country wins out in i think that is in question. >> your beloved party, nbc has
11:37 pm
reporting, interviews with more than a dozen gop officials in 4 key presidential battlegrounds, most indicated that they had moved on from the arguments about 2020, a notable shift from most of the forceful trump supporters during the impeachment and his first year out of office. i guess the question is, how do republicans distance themselves from trump, are they, do you see more candidates following, like in virginia, what are you hearing of the ground?>> politics, perception is reality, as david knows, in the chattering class, it is that trump is the invisible dictator of the republican party, but his reign has been based on fear, if he was abducted by
11:38 pm
martians tomorrow, none of them would shed a tear. when we look at primary voters, not all republicans but the ones you care about in the primary, trump is been popular for a long time, but you can see the popularity is dropping. if you ask a presidential question of those voters now, trouble get 45-50% of the vote, a strong plurality makes a be front runner, but others will get half of the vote, some were not that well known, so trump is declining, the question is what is is half-life, and what will happen to him between now the primary season next year. but a number of republican officeholders would love to be liberated from him but they are cowardly and dare not say it because they're focused on their own primary, not exactly a profile encourage factory in the gop, but if trump shows weakness, a lot of people want to move on, that's about 45% of the vote but they are afraid to
11:39 pm
take on trump, it's up in the air now, we can see what the slope of the decline is, but he can still be the velvety condo question. >> if trump is on the decline, you can tell us if you agree with that or not, is it part of the natural way that things go, people are looking for the new shiny thing, people are just exhausted by him, or is it a shift about people saying this business about continuing to fight 2020 is nonsense and destructive to democracy and that's why he is a decline? >> sadly, i don't think it is destructive to democracy, they've been there all along in some republicans have put country ahead of party but for the most part, they think it is politics. 45 or 50% is nowhere near 100%, one we ran against hillary clinton in 2008, she was one of
11:40 pm
the strongest, she was 45 or 50%, there was an opening, and i've always believed and i will eat these words probably that trump is not going to run again, because imagine this guy with his ego running for the republican nomination and not getting it. i still think he would be the front runner today, but that 45 could go down to 42, 38, and i think people are looking for a shiny thing and there's an idea that trump is damaged electoral college goods, and there will be a look for other candidates, i think you will be interesting to watch, with these poll numbers, you say how does he not run, but he is so brittle and thin-skinned, he's really a baby, losing the nomination is probably the thing he could stomach released in his entire life. >> many future discussions unto the shiny new person might be, but they will be back to talk
11:41 pm
about, 'tis the season for setting priorities for the new year, a potential wish list for the president with the 11th hour continues. hour continues.
11:42 pm
11:43 pm
11:44 pm
voting rights reform, one of the issues at the very top of the biden administration's agenda, but the real momentum has been in the states, at least 19 of them passing laws restricting access to voting just this year. still with us, david plouffe and mike murphy, among the states where voting has faced challenges, texas, florida, arizona, georgia, democrats know this, but is there any sense you have that this has a good chance of passage?>> i think it has a better chance than 90 days ago, because it will require joe manchin and sinema, and others, to protect
11:45 pm
democracy, it's important, part of that will be to make sure that we remove the restrictions making it harder to vote largely targeting minorities, but also to secure our democracy, because the most insidious thing is the republican drive here to allow their own state legislatures decide who won the elections, no matter what the voters say. that's the permission structure, i think some of the democratic senators need to go to a microphone and say i did not want to do this but the republican actions of the states have forced me to do so so that we can protect our democracy, i still think it is a long and challenging climb, but it's the most important thing in front of us right now, even with covid, and other economic needs, as i think we are this close to sliding into an autocratic future in united states. >> mike, is there way that you see for joe biden, who owes black voters for the election, to salvage this?
11:46 pm
can anything stop republicans from rolling back voting rights? >> when in doubt, win more seats, that's my advice, it is an election year, sometimes the issue is more within grasp as a political weapon then the legislative victory, there would have to be partial filibuster pulled back, will joe manshin do that, my guess is no, he's a traditionalist, but there really a lot of pressure, maybe there's some way to get there are three framework, now that we are in an election year, the democrats with the reality of a 50-50 senate, which is not a liberal senate, because of them, they start looking for issues to fight over to get the election outcome rather than huge appetites to pass things they don't have the votes to pass, because they have to break the
11:47 pm
narrative of joe biden looking weak and ineffective, which is killing him politically, i don't normally give them advice, but we are in the insane time right now. >> what does that look like? frankly, as you have just stated, we are in a situation where this is a down and dirty fight for salvaging democracy, a watered-down version, as some people would view it, is a better than nothing? >> you're not going to get that, laying out the framework, got a lot of plaudits, barack obama praised him, it will be something like that, two things, protect democracy so that people get the most votes to win the elections, republicans can't decide who is going to rule the country for decades and also remove limitations on voting. they will be more narrow, and more for people to vote, we
11:48 pm
have to live there real world, and build back better, a chance to pass significant elements of that, because he supports more that i think a lot of people realize, what the progressives support, joe manschin. >> if you don't pass these things now, you could be waving a white flag for a long time.>> coming up, covid weather is teaming up this holiday season, and update on travel troubles when we continue. continue.
