11:00 am
and releases stubborn fat all while controlling stress and emotional eating. at last, a diet pill that actually works. go to to get yours. hello. thank you for joining me this sunday. we begin this hour with a surprise visit in ukraine. house speaker nancy pelosi leading an unannounced congressional delegation to kyiv to meet with president zelenskyy. she becomes the highest ranking american official to visit the war torn country, and she made it clear the u.s. will not waver in its support for ukraine. >> we are visiting you to say thank you for your fight for
11:01 am
freedom. your fight is a fight for everyone. and so our commitment is to be there for you until the fight is done. the visit comes as russia pounds eastern ukraine with a vicious new offensive. ukrainian officials report heavy shelling and air strikes are targeting a large swath of the country from kharkiv to the north to zaporizhzhia in the south. president zelenskyy says an airport runway in odesa was destroyed in a missile strike saturday, and he is vowing to rebuild it. and in the long besieged city of mariupol, new hope for civilians. president zelenskyy confirming that evacuations from the steel plant holdout are now underway. cnn's matt rivers and scott mclain are on the ground in ukraine. you're in kyiv where the house speaker met with zelenskyy today. this was a significant moment.
11:02 am
why? >> no question. you said it off the top. the most senior u.s. official to visit in kyiv. more importantly, it kind of really tops off an entire change of narrative we've heard from the united states over the past few weeks where they have significantly ramped up what they are willing to do here to support ukraine. not only in the rhetoric, not only in the funding that the u.s. is providing to ukraine, but also look at the business. it was one week ago that we had the secretaries of state and the secretary of defense here from the united states. a few days later president biden announces he's requesting $33 billion in additional aid from congress to send to ukraine. a mixture of humanitarian aid as well as heavy weaponry. after that here comes a congressional delegation led by the speaker. this is a significant moment and one that's not lost on president zelenskyy who pointedly thanked the united states, calling them the leader in terms of supporting ukraine in the fight
11:03 am
against russia. what you heard from speaker pelosi was echoing what we heard from the secretary of defense and president biden that the united states is in this for the long hall, that they remain committed helping ukraine not only just stall the russian advance but perhaps fully kick the russians out of an occupied territory in ukraine and that's a big deal. of course, speaker pelosi is going to have a big role to play moving forward in sheparding a legislative package through of the $33 billion request. she seems to be on board for that. >> scott mclain in lviv. a big announcement in mariupol where evacuations are now underway. how is that happening? >> this day has been a long time coming. many people have been trapped under the steel plant for more than two months with dwindling food and water supplies and lately a heavy bombing campaign from the russians. remember, a lot of these people likely have not seen sunlight for the last two months. so we know that buses from -- buses and also u.n. vehicles have been on standby since
11:04 am
yesterday to try to get people out and evacuated from that plant, and we know from russian state media, quoting the defense ministry, that 80 people were able to evacuate from the plant and were taken east to russian held territory, and we have new video of their arrival of what looks to be a tent camp. you can see women, children, and the elderly all there. now, it's not clear exactly how this evacuation took place. or how it was brokered. but we have been told by soldiers inside the plant that the cease fire has been holding since yesterday. it's surprising considering that on friday they were reporting that the russians were actually trying to storm that plant on the ground. now the ukrainians have long been concerned that all of the people evacuated from that plant would end up on russian-held territory. it seems in this case they did have a choice. the russians say anyone who wanted to go toward
11:05 am
ukrainian-held territory was handed over to the u.n. and to the red cross and president zelenskyy also confirmed that 100 people are now in route to zaporizhzhia. the ukrainian deputy prime minister apologized for the radio silence. the real lack of information that we've had over the last 24 hours, but she said she did not want to do anything to jeper diez the success of this operation which, by the way, is still ongoing. she specifically singled out the red cross and the u.n. secretary general for helping to get this done. what still is not clear at this stage of the game, if you believe the russian and the ukrainian statements, 180 civilians have been taken out of the plant. that still potentially leaves hundreds more. it also leaves, we're told, hundreds of wounded soldiers and we have no clue at this stage what their fate may be. >> all right. scott mclain, matt rivers, thanks to both of you. appreciate it. let's talk about this with retired u.s. army major general
11:06 am
dana petard. he is the author of "hunting the caliphate". general, welcome back. good to see you. let's zero in on the evacuations at the steel plant as we know it in mariupol. how encouraging is this that there are many, just a few handful, who are finding safety, especially after russia has been boasting of having most control or dominance of mariupol? >> well, good afternoon, fred. i think it is encouraging. if you'd asked me before this took place whether or not the russians could be trusted, i would have said that wasn't likely. but the cease fire appears to be holding. and some of the evacuees are getting out. obviously they're -- who knows what their fate will be, but it's at least encouraging.
11:07 am
>> what's your worry or concern about the soldiers that scott mclain just reported, many of whom might be injured, trying to get as much treatment as they can while still in the steel plant? what's your concern about them? and any confrontation with russian forces? >> the concern is how long can they last? they're surrounded. they have fought courageously. they've pinned down so many different russian forces there in mariupol. but it's difficult to see how they will get out without surrendering. i know president zelenskyy is going to try to get them out, but i the end to agree with the commander of the forces there. it may take a third country to actually broker for their departure. >> we've seen recently this week surrendering in some cases means ultimate death. let me ask you about russian forces and their strategy thus
11:08 am
far. they focussed their new offensive in eastern ukraine. we're also seeing new strikes in odesa. how much territory can russia maintain given the limitations we've seen among their forces? >> well, the russians have obviously changed their tactics somewhat. it's at the tactical level and operational level, it's much more coordinated between ground forces, aircraft helicopters, fixed wing aircraft, even missiles, and their mechanized forces and artillery. and their objectives now appear to be more limited. more based on their capabilities. so they're continuing to move with some limited success. one thing the ukrainians have to take a look at is how can they counterattack and disrupt that russian movement? what we've just gotten reports that there was a strike on a commanding control head quarters for the russians that was trying
11:09 am
to kill the russian commander general who escaped but was wounded, but there were others killed. there's things like that, the ukrainians have to do to disrupt the russian tempo. as far as odesa, odesa certainly is an objective, but with the size of the russian force, it doesn't appear that they have the ability to hold ground beyond the donbas region. unless they get more forces. >> besides supplying arms, arsenal, and now the u.s. or at least the biden administration proposing another $33 billion, in what way or other ways is the u.s. helping ukraine arming them with perhaps intelligence? >> well, the u.s. is helping them in many ways. the u.s. has taken the initiative as far as diplomatically. a recent visit of the secretary of state, secretary of defense
11:10 am
and speaker ploy si is a big deal. what the u.s. is doing as far as nun if iing nato. the u.s. is taking initiative as far as sanctions against ukraine. as far as militarily, i think it's mixed. one -- the intelligence capability, yes, that is good. sending arms to ukraine, yes. the very complex arms. so there's another piece of that which is training the ukrainians to use the weapons. overall the u.s. is outsourcing the fight. when the u.s. could be doing more. one thing that we talked about in the past is the ability to set up a humanitarian assistance zone to help protect refugees in western ukraine. the u.s. could declare a humanitarian assistance zone from north all the way down to odesa south and west to the polish border. >> but it would also mean russia's cooperation, and we've seen how that has gone thus far. >> well, the humanitarian
11:11 am
corridors would be with russian talking to the russians. but declaring humanitarian assistance zone would have to be enforced. it would take nato troops on the ground in russia and ukraine where there are no russian forces and no fly zone in russia and ukraine. it would also be able to protect russia and ukraine from the missile strikes that russia does with air defense systems, but there's more the u.s. can do militarily. that's taking the strategic initiative militarily. >> good to see you again. thank you so much. >> thank you, fred. still ahead, a covid vaccine for the youngest kids may be available as soon as next month. we'll discuss what the former u.s. surgeon general ahead. plus a nationwide shortage of baby formula. the situation has only gotten worse as one popular maker is under investigation for potential bacterial

a popular baby formula maker that is currently under investigation by federal agencies says it may distribute some products on a case by case basis. the fda and cdc are looking into some of abbott nutritions infant formulas after a whistleblower raised concerns about concealed safety problems at a michigan production plant. all of this comes as a shortage of the product continues across several states. cnn has been following this. we are joined right now. polo, bring us up to speed on the investigation and how it relates to the shortages. >> reporter: in the end parents are facing key issues coming together and snowballing into a big issue for parents as they seek nutrition for their infants. there is, of course, the supply chain whoas we've seen for months that continue, and also the lingering effects of a
11:17 am
february fda recall on certain types of baby formula. if you look at the graphic, it will give you an idea of who was recalled in february. they were products that were produced at a sturgis, michigan facility at abbott nutrition products. these were after reports of at least four infants that had fallen ill after drinking the formula that was manufactured at the facility and developed rare and serious bacterial infection. sadly, two of the babies died and certainly increased the urgency here for federal authorities to act. i want you to hear from one physician as he described yesterday on cnn how this potential contamination of the products could have happened earlier this year. >> there was an infection. as a pediatric infectious disease essentialist, any time we hear habit that bacterial infection in infants, we start to think about contaminated infant powder formulas, specifically. liquid formulas, the premixed
11:18 am
formulas are prepared materially. powder formulas are in the. no but this infection does occur naturally in the environment. the contamination of formulas have happen both during manufacturing as well as once you get it home and open up the container. >> abbott nutrition has said it is evaluating the fda findings and also working to take corrective actions. in terms of what parents across the country are doing, look at this story from massachusetts. it's a nonprofit that basically helps especially needy families obtain what they need to take care of their children. they've been receiving since last month, according to a story from our partners at wbz over a dozen calls a day of parents desperate to obtain this. really this is -- the onion of a story. you peel back the layers and at the base of it, at the core of it, are the parents that are still months after the recall,

is mourning the loss of naomi judge who died at the age of 76.
11:24 am
she and her daughter wynonna dominated the country music charts in the 80s as the duo the judds rocketing up the charts with numerous hits, including this one. ♪ mama he's crazy crazy over me ♪ ♪ and in my life is where he sleeps ♪ ♪ he always wants to be ♪ >> the judd family, wynonna and ashley made the announcement saying it was due to mental illness. tg shepard is a country music singer and song writer who has known the judds since they broke into the country music business. a laurie ann is with us as well.
11:25 am
great to see both of you. under this difficult time, but we celebrate an icon. laurie ann, you've known naomi judd for a long time. tell me about her. >> naomi and wynonna embody with country music is about in the first place. and i know it sounds cliche, but it is just the truth. country music is about life. all of the ups and downs, and living it who you are authentically. and that's what naomi did. she didn't hide that she came from nothing. she didn't hide that she had difficult relationships. she didn't hide her mental illness. and through all of this, they made music that up -- to this day, it uplifts all of us. amazing, amazing legacy.
11:26 am
>> that really is something. the story telling through the music and nine books? i mean, she really revealed herself in so many ways, and with that outreach helped a lot of people. tg, you had the chance to introduce the judds for the first network television appearance. did you know at the time that they were destined for this kind of greatness? >> i was hosting a show called "nashville now". it used to come out of nashville here on the network. yes, i did know. the night that i introduced naomi and wynonna for the first time to the network national audience, they were nervous wrecks. i can remember naomi pacing and just a wreck. after their performance that night, i knew that i was in the presence of greatness, that they were going to go onto heights that we probably could never imagine, and they did. we not only lost as you just said a great musical treasure in
11:27 am
naomi, but we lost a great author, a song writer. she embodied everything that our business is all about. country music. >> laurie ann, naomi and wynonna judd, i mean, they will -- they are both together tonight to be inducted into the country music hall of fame. this was planned way before the country music hall of fame and the rest of the world would learn about naomi's unexpected passing. and cnn confirmed that wynonna still plans to attend the ceremony. physically naomi will not be there, but obviously her spirit and legacy will be filling the room. i mean, what do you expect it's going to be like tonight for this heart felt afor her induction into the hall of fame? >> i think it is going to embody
11:28 am
what their lives and careers were all about, the emotional roller coaster. you think of the grit that wynonna has to put herself out there publicly and make this appearance so soon. i lost my husband just a few weeks ago, and i had to make an appearance a couple of days ago, and just nearly lost it. so i -- my heart is with her, and i just know it is going to be tragic, but it's going to be joyous on so many levels. >> and so sorry for your loss as well. yeah, you -- you are -- you know very closely what it's going to be like for wynonna. tg, let me ask, you too. it was just a couple weeks that we saw the two, this duo, the judds on stage during the country musing awards. and when you saw them, what were you thinking about a, i mean, they looked magnificent. they sounded fantastic, but what
11:29 am
were you thinking about seeing them after for very a long time we hadn't seen them performing together? >> i was excited to see them return to the stage again. it was like they picked up where they left off when they quit touring. i was excited that they were getting ready to start their tour again, their arena tour. i was excited to see them both on tv, and naomi sang to great and looked so beautiful, of course, we've always loved wynonna's voice, but to see them back was just a really exciting thing for me. it was part of what's been missing in country music the last few years. a lot of the artists of their era has gone to the wayside, but to see them return gave all of us artists hope in our era of music that we all can come back, and it was just exciting to see them on stage again. >> yeah. and i think that's what makes it all the more shocking, too, of her passing. our hearts go out to the judd
11:30 am
family and the entire music community. everyone is mourning the loss. tg, laurie ann, thank you so much for helping to paint an even broader picture of just how special naomi judd is to so many. thank you. >> thank you. she was so special, and may be gone but never forgotten. >> exceptional. thank you so much. straight ahead, the former u.s. surgeon general will be telling us how a chance meeting with an uber driver caused him to double down on his message about mask wearing. first, a quick programming note. stanley tucci is back. new episodes, new food, and new discoveries. stanley tucci, "searching for italy" premiers tonight on cnn.
11:31 am
the note for my vegetarians watching, they eat a lot of meat. >> i surrender. to the pork. oh, look at that. gorgeous. >> that's a revelation. there are more italians here, and whatever you've heard, the food here is incredible. i don't want to talk anymore. i just want to eat it. >> a new season of stanley tucci, tonight at 9:00 on cnn.

the wait for a covid vaccine for young kids may soon be over. moderna is asking the fda for emergency use authorization for the vaccine for children under six. the company says its data which came mostly from the omicron wave showed the vaccine safely protected children from covid. the company's chief medical officer explains why the top line number may seem low. >> 50%, i know is often lower than we are used to seeing with our vaccine, but it's because
11:37 am
the study was conducted during a time of omicron. when we look at the uk data that was released just last week, when we look at symptomatic disease, exactly there we see vaccine effectiveness of about 50%. but when we look at vaccine effectiveness against hospitalization, that number is 89 to 95%. that's why i think we can be reassured and confident in this result. >> let's bring in dr. adams, the former u.s. surgeon general. my first time talking to you on the air. welcome. thanks for being with us. >> great to be with you. >> wonderful. >> are you confident in the results that we're seeing from the moderna vaccine that it is effective for kids? >> well, incredibly important 'let the fda process play its way out. we've heard from the results show us that -- from an effectiveness point of view, it's as effective as two doses of a vaccine in adults.
11:38 am
when we also know that actually the safety profile so far is even better than for 5 to 11-year-olds. i hope the fda reviews this as a promised with all speed. i hope they're transparent. that's the big issue here. they need to communicate why they're taking their time and being thoughtful and considerate about this. it is younger kids. the risk/benefit ratio is different, but they need to communicate that to people. i hope we'll get this to parents as quickly as possible. we're moving into this new stage where we're saying everyone has to take care of themselves. but not everyone has the tools. >> that's true. tools are important. let's talk about last night. that was the white house correspondent's dinner. more than 2000 people showed up for the event. you wrote an op ed about last month's grit iron dinner which turned out to be a super spreader event. there were cabinet members testing positive for covid. so one would think that lessons were learned from that, but --
11:39 am
and perhaps there were lessons, because there was a lot of testing that took place. there were certain protocols in place in order to attend the dinner last night. do you feel like people are learning lessons from super spreader events? >> we are, but not nearly fast enough, fredricka. for instance, i said in my op ed if you're going to gather, you need to make sure you have rapid testing. they did it for this event. that was important, but there are stories that they turned down offers to improve the ventilation. ventilation is a very important way we can make the large gatherings much safer. and they also didn't think about the workers, the staff who were there. it's important to take them into consideration, too. >> it's early, and let's hope that everyone did, including the employees, workers, that everyone had a really safe evening and fun, too. i also want to ask you about a recent uber ride that you took and how the driver's own experience with his health story
11:40 am
and mask wearing really resonated with you. tell us more about that, and the picture there it looks like you took that at the atlanta hartsfield jackson airport. tell me more. >> well, this is me and mr. melvin. he gave me a ride from a meeting i was at in atlanta to the airport. he had a surgical mask on that didn't look like it was a very new one. i asked him about it. he recognized me, and i asked him about his mask, and he told me he was a double lung tr transplant recipient. he said he appreciated me fighting for mask wearing and vaccinations. i said, well, do you have an n-95 mask? he said i can't afford it. i don't know where to get them. i gave him one of mine that i carry around to protect him. the point i want people to understand is people like mr. melvin don't always have the same resources to be able to access the tools that we talk
11:41 am
about. so we need to be considerate in public settings of people who have children under five. people who are immune compromised or may not have the masks, the testing, the treatment access. the ventilation and the ability to get vaccinated and boosted that we do. it's really important to emphasize, this is a good thing. we've got more tools than we've ever had before, but we need to make sure we have equitable access in order for people to safely take care of themselves and make up their minds about how to protect themselves. >> it continues to be important to be mindful of others. we're still in it, even though it looks different than last year at this time. since we have you, i want to cover the map. i want to ask you about comments made by the current med of the fda friday, where he said, i believe misinformation is the leading cause of death. it's beyond my imagination that we could have a free vaccine that reduces your risk of death by 90%, and yet, a substantial
11:42 am
portion of our population will not take it. is that a massive barrier that you find is troublesome as it pertains to public health? >> the fda commissioner is spot on. misinformation and politicizing has hurt our ability to respond. and we need to make sure we're doing targeted outreach. we know the reasons that conservatives, for instance, may be hesitant to get vaccinated are different than the reasons african americans or hispanics are hesitant to get vaccinated. i'm confident, because i see it every day, that people will get vaccinated, will get boosted if someone they trust is providing them accurate information. right now we don't have that trust. one of my favorite quotes is people need to know that you care before they care that you know. it's too easy to think the government doesn't care about me, you don't care about me.
11:43 am
when we create the connections, more people will come over to the side of the getting vaccinated and boosted. i see it every day. >> the oral anti-viral drug, it's viable to people who tested positive for covid, the vice president is among those who have taken it after testing positive. you need to get a prescription from your doctor. are you hopeful that its availability and effectiveness will be far reaching? >> well, this is another example of that lack of equity that we continue to talk about. there are people like the vice president who can easily get this medication. but i hear story after story in my personal life and in my professional life of individuals who are far higher risk than the vice president based on age, co-morbidities who can't get the medicine who have been turned down. if we're going to create a narrative that people need to take care of themselves and the tools are out there, it's incumbent upon the white house
11:44 am
and all of us to make sure everyone has the tools and until they do, that they're willing to sacrifice a little bit on our part to protect people who can't protect themselves. it comes down to compassion. if we have compassion, we'll get through this more quickly and safely with fewer lives lost. >> how is the family? you'd been public about how frustrating it was, even for you. you were not able to vilt your mom in the hospital during the pandemic when she was hospitalized unrelated to covid, but how is everything doing? >> family is doing well. many people know that my wife actually was treated for cancer. she's doing well, but we're scared. we're worried that she's going to be exposed and not be able to get the treatment that she needs. she and i actually both contemplated whether or not we should get a booster, and we've been told we don't meet the criteria for a booster, so we used antibody testing to actually help us understand
11:45 am
whether or not we had antibodies, but those are tools that i have as a doctor, as a physician, that other people don't have. my own brother suffers from substance substance use disorder. struggles to get access to treatment. there are many barriers for people who want to help themselves, but don't have the equitable tools. that's what i'm fighting for at purdue university, making sure people have the tools to make healthy choices so we all can be our healthiest selves. i thank you for asking about my wife and family. that's what we all ultimately care about is taking care of our families. >> i think it's very much appreciated that you have shared so much of what you personally and your family has also been through just as many of us have endured as well. doctor, good to see you. thank you so much. i hope you come back. >> any time. and thank you so much. remember, get your boosters out there, people. get your vaccines. get your boosters. talk to someone you trust, because that's how we get through this. >> great advice.
11:46 am

11:51 am
and now in "nomad", carlton takes us on a global exploration of food, music, art and culture to discover the universal threads that connect all of us. >> i was first prointroduced to the art world exploring museums in paris. one thing that became apparent was a strict lack of brown and brown perspectives. i'm meeting two people looking to change that on the art scene. >> in france you're exposed to the art, but you're exposed to the domination of the culture of others. what you are seeing are works of them by them about people like us. >> mary yan is an art world power house. she has a beautiful gallery in chicago and is opening a brand new one in paris. she has an incredible roster of talented artists including her

friend, raphael barantine. >> this picture was taken of western teem who are colonizing africa. >> as a black person, or as a mix, as a brown, thinking to make art requires a lot of audacity and a lot of confidence, because what you are motivated to is what you see that looks like you. >> let's go. joining us right now is the host of "nomad" carlton mccoy. carlton, so good to see you. look, i'm learning a lot about you. you grew up in southeast, d.c. you might knew my husband. he grew up there, too. and you also learned how to cook from your grandmother right out of high school. you got a scholarship to the culinary institute of america. you're the second african american to earn the prestigious title of master somelia.

how did this prepare you to take us on this journey with you? >> first off, if you've got a husband from southeast d.c., chances are i do know him. it's a very small place. >> i know. i'll hook y'all up. >> yeah, the -- most of the journey coming from southeast to where i am now and obviously dealing with the complicated race politics of being a mixed race citizen in the u.s., you know, it does prepare you to have a sort of unique perspective on the world, the concept of national identity and just how to relate to people. and i think being able to sort of live in the gray and adapt and in most environments, to sort of i guess create a culture of respect for people's cultures, and trying to see the world through their eyes, and the way i moved around the world. yeah, i've been training my whole life for this. >> that's wonderful. it sounds complex, too. i mean, there's serious planning
11:54 am
going on here, but you've made it so palatable for everyone. what have you kept in mind along the way to allow everyone to enjoy this experience with you? >> well, for me it was a very authentic experience. i committed myself, and the whole time it was that i was going to forget the cameras were there and have the same conversation i would have if they weren't there. i was raised to value humans as one of the greatest assets in the world, and for me, i felt blessed to be able to travel in the world and to meet the exceptional people and honor for their time to tell their story and to give me an idea of what makes the world they live in special, and for me, i try to do the best i could to step out of the way and allowed them to express that to the world. >> well, i can't wait. i'm looking forward to being along. one of the many viewers along for the ride on your journey.
