tv   New Day With John Berman and Brianna Keilar  CNN  September 14, 2022 4:00am-5:00am PDT

4:00 am
good morning to viewers in the u.s. and around the world. it's wednesday, september 14th, i'm brianna keeler with john berman. you're looking at the mile in central london soon the queen's casket will be escorted from buckingham palace to westminster hall where the queen will lie in state until her funeral on monday. king charles, prince william and prince harry will walk behind the casket during this 38 minute trip, this procession it will take. first on cnn, a royal dinner after receiving the queen's casket last night at buckingham palace, the royals had dinner together. in attendance, the king, queen consort camilla and children and grandchildren. i want to go to london right now. anna, first to you. what are you seeing where you are and what do you expect over the next several hours? >> reporter: well, john, we came
4:01 am
again to the back of the line, this is for people that want to see the queen's coffin lying in state when it opens to the public. i say i was at the back of the line. it has already stretched for quite some distance. hundreds of thousands of people are expected to do this. people have been warned the queue could take 30 hours, go overnight. it will move continuously once it's over. this isn't the only crowds we're seeing in london today, plenty of people lining the procession route. they want to pay their last respects in person. there has been jubilation celebrating the queen's life but also we'll see silence wanting to reflect on their life and the person they lost. the procession will start in the next few hours, a very pomp and ceremony type of session. we'll see the casket brought by
4:02 am
gun ceremony and it will be moving slowly down -- >> we seem to have lost -- >> before it arrives at westminster hall. >> anna stewart thank you. the crowds have a choice to make to line the streets to glimpse the procession or whether they line up to get ready to view the casket once the queen is lying in state inside westminster. scott mclean to you, because you're near the front of what could be a very, very long line of people who would like to walk past the casket over the next few days, scott. what are you hearing? >> reporter: that's right. the folks around here are some of the most devoted to seeing the queen lying in state. some have been camping out at least for one night. most everyone camping out at least for one night. the two women in the front of
4:03 am
the line have been out for two nights. people don't have a lot of stuff because they were told to bring minimal stuff. it rained last night, it was miserable all things told. this is david carlson, from london, he's 75 years old. david, you're a military veteran, and i just wonder, you know, you haven't slept in the last 24 hours. why are you here? why is this so important to you? >> i need to pay my respects to her majesty. the longevity for service. and the least i can do after serving in the armed forces and pledging my allegiance to her is go and say good-bye. >> i can't help but have some empathy for you, of course, because you -- you know, it was
4:04 am
miserable last night. it was raining. how was it? how are you still, you know, sitting here? >> i -- i must be made of good stuff. originally born in liverpool, strong up here. i may not be -- the most physical, but -- >> you're tough guy. one last thing. yesterday morning, we've been checking in with you over the last 24 hours you had a bit of a fainting spell, yet you decided to carry on and to keep waiting. and i just wonder if you ever considered for a moment just packing it in and going home? >> not in the slightest. it was just a brief spell. that's all. nothing serious. and i just carry on. >> reporter: keep calm and carry
4:05 am
on. very british of you. we appreciate you talking to us. thank you for your service, your military service, of course, sir. so these are just, again, a few of the people at the front of the line. david just got a wristband, by the way, number 12. he will be the 12th person inside of westminster hall to view the queen's body lying in state. >> number 12, that's extraordinary. what could be more british than saying carry on. thanks to you, scott. this morning amtrak has cancelled seven more long range routes ahead of a possible rail strike that involves 60,000 workers. the white house scrambling to reach an agreement by midnight this friday. if there is no deal, 30% of all u.s. freight shipments could be halted and disrupt the already fragile supply chain. joining us is pete montain. we're talking about what could happen. i think people if this does
4:06 am
happen are going to be jolted by the effects of this. >> there's definitely an economic jolt. $2 billion a day in economic impact if the freight rail system comes to this grinding halt. and now negotiations move to d.c. today with the labor secretary, marty walsh, meeting with two key unions. this is what he's good at, sealing the deal with the clock ticking towards the midnight deadline to avoid a rail worker strike. you can see the new impacts here. amtrak pre-emptively canceling more routes. it was already canceling routes between chicago and seattle, chicago, san francisco, chicago and l.a. now chicago, new orleans has been added to the list. also new york to miami. this is what freight rail carries. talking about bulk commodities here, food and agricultural products, grain, bread, car parts, there are already car
4:07 am
part shortages we heard the horror stories of people waiting for cars to get fixed. talking about 60,000 rail workers could go on strike. amtrak said they're doing the pre-emptive scale backs because they own about 3% of their rails, that's in the northeast corridor. these are really the long range routes they're canceling because they're freight routes that amtrak uses their trains on. we're coming down to the wire here, the biden administration burning up the phones trying to avoid this. we'll end up with a strike at the end of the week. could take a trickle down effect until we see all the impacts but this is dire. this is going to cause billions of dollars to the economy if this strike happens. >> thank you. peter mountean as it says in my
4:08 am
script. i'm going to call you that, peter thank you. retired army brigadier general and election denier don bolduc leads chuck morris by 1,800 votes, morris has now conceded though. he tweeted it's been a long night we've come up short, i want to thank my supporters for the blood, sweat and tears in the effort, i just called and wished my best to don bolduc. joining me now is david challon. david, this race, along with a couple others in new hampshire, a victory for the trump wing of the republican party. and also, if you flip it around, makes some democrats happy. >> that's certainly true. that democrats believe when the trump wing of the party emerges
4:09 am
victorious in a primary process in a battleground state like new hampshire that makes the democrats' job easier to hang onto the seat. i don't think the democrats will be able to celebrate anything until we see results in november to see if they're right that indeed the more maga identified nominees prove that they are not able to win in a general election context. but clearly democrats, around the country and in new hampshire last night as well, have been investing money to try to get what they believe to be the easier republican to defeat. i think, worth noting here and watching here also, you know, the governor of the state chris sinunu as you know, referred to the now republican nominee for senate as a conspiracy theorist type. it'll be very interesting to see, given chuck morse made that
4:10 am
concession phone call, does the entire establishment, including the governor, many were with morse, rallying around bolduc here, and how he squares his language, the previous governor. >> many wanted sinunu sinunu to run. that didn't happen, sinunu endorsed morse. we won't know until november if this is something the democrats will be happy in the end this is who they wanted to face. don bolduc is who they wanted to face. what does it say about the trump wing of the republican party? >> it is the dominant force inside republican primary electorates. that's been proven throughout the last six months of primary season. that's the life force inside the republican primary voting electorate right now is that trump wing, the trump identification. even that trump approach to
4:11 am
politics, in terms of personality. so i think that is sort of the realm inside gop politics. now we're turning the page to the general election season. how that plays in november is something that we'll have to wait and see in the next eight weeks. >> in terms of the general election, one of the reasons that democrats had been feeling slightly better headed into november, gas prices have been falling, they still are falling, and they felt the inflation numbers were easing up a little bit. not so fast. inflation persistent. these new numbers out yesterday. how much of a concern will they be for democrats and how could this shape the race for the next several weeks? >> it's a concern, as it should be. americans are experiencing the cost of their lives at a higher level than a year ago, even with gas falling it's still higher than a year ago. food prices are higher. that is -- any concern for an incumbent party in power to go
4:12 am
before the voters asking for a re-up on their contract. by the way, it is what republicans, if you talk to mitch mcconnell and other strategists running these republican campaigns, they want to talk about inflation every day. some polls have shown it coming down a little bit in terms of importance to a voters' decision but most polling shows inflation and the economy sits atop the heap of all other issues. >> mitch mcconnell wants to be talking about inflation. what he doesn't want to be talking about apparently is a national ban on abortion which is what senator lindsey graham proposed yesterday. a ban after 15 weeks. what's lindsey graham doing here, david, and what's the potential impact? >> lindsey graham says, you know, he's looking to give something to the republican base here, the pro-life movement to rally around. listen, republicans just achieved a 50-year quest, right. a goal here of getting roe v. wade overturned.
4:13 am
and now, they're scrambling in a really remarkable fashion to figure out what then do we present as a message on this issue to voters? so what graham is doing here is taking a 15-week abortion ban which polling shows is not wildly unpopular with the american public and saying, hey, this is something our pro-life base ka rally around. one of the arguments republicans made is this is all returned to the states and should not be dealt with at the federal level so you have the republican candidates in battleground districts saying what what you doing lindsey graham why do i need to answer questions about a national abortion ban at 15 weeks when we spent the summer saying this returns to the states where it should be handled. you see a discordent messaging operations in the republican
4:14 am
party. ukraine's president just a short time ago paid a personal visit to this territory that was just recaptured from russian forces. this is video here showing president zelenskyy meeting with ukrainian troops, shaking their hands. this is in the newly liberated city of izyum. forces entered the city just five days ago and ukraine said troops have taken back more than 3,000 square miles of land since the start of the month. those, of course, are ukrainian numbers. the pentagon said it has seen a number of russian forces crossing back across the border into russia. joining us to talk about this is cnn national security analyst beth saner, a former official at the office of the director of national intelligence. let's talk about izyum here where we see president zelenskyy and the significance of this to
4:15 am
the region as well as this city here which they have retaken. >> these are huge in a couple of ways. first it's just militarily, these are logistic hubs, the places where the supply lines are centered for russia. and where they abandoned a lot of equipment as the men fled. and so, you know, these are important not just for this region but also as ukraine is trying to push south and into donbas and extend this into the eastern area. so these are really important. the other part of it i think is just psychologically. just seeing zelenskyy in izyum and raising this flag. its a important for the ukrainians, important for the west because it shows what we're giving them is working and it's really important because in russia it's impossible to deny
4:16 am
what's happening. >> he makes a show of going. he knows that. >> he's good at this. >> for the psychological part of this. the offensive now has slowed, which is important to note, but part of that is because there is this focus on leeman. tell us about that. >> in terms of what is going on here, looking more at the donbas -- >> in the east. >> -- in the east. and there's also a russian, you know, working here. there's a lot of fighting going on there. so they're, of course, going to be slowing because after six days of fighting, the ukrainian forces are tired and they have to regroup themselves. so we should expect, a ukrainian defense minister came out today and saud we should expect things to be a little bit slower but this is a key focus here because it's the gateway to the donbas.
4:17 am
>> to the luhansk region. >> yes. >> and putin said they were going to take luhansk and donetsk. and with depletion of forces most experts say the russians are not going to be able to take this territory here in the stripes. they're not going to be able to achieve their aims in taking the donbas. in fact, probably lose ground. >> this is an embarrassment for vladimir putin what he has lost in the kharkiv region. what worries do you have about how he might react here? >> we are seeing in moscow, you know, trying to shift the narrative. they have had to admit this, but it's not putin's fault, right. it's somebody else's fault. it's the military's fault, bad intelligence, those things are true, but putin also has been in charge of this war and taken command. he's making command decisions but he's distancing himself.
4:18 am
so now what i'm worried abilouts a lot of the discussion picking up in social media is about carpet bombing ukrainian cities, about really taking it out on the civilians in ukraine. for a while the kremlin was pulling back from that and now we're seeing them pick up on state tv this mantra. i am expecting that the russians are going to try to change somehow the tenor of the war and they can't do it because they don't have the men on the battlefield. so what's left? they have to indiscrkrem innocently bomb human beings. hundreds of troops are getting ready right now to escort the queen's casket from buckingham palace to westminster hall. new research on multivitamins how they help keep

alzheimer's association released a study that suggests taking a daily multivitamin may slow cognitive decline in older adults. dr. narula joins us right now. i love this study i take a multivitamin every day. >> this was a study of 2200 older americans and researchers looked to see if giving them a daily supplement, a cocoa extract supplement or daily vitamins could have benefits in cognitive function. interestingly they found no benefit in the cocoa group, unfortunately for those of us who eat dark chocolate but did find a benefit for people who take a vitamin every day. they noticed there was an
4:24 am
enhanced benefit for those who had underlying cardiovascular disease because those officials are possibly nutrient deficient. >> they thought the cocoa was going to turn up results there. >> they did. >> but the results on the multivitamin were extreme. >> it's interesting when you think about a third of americans take a multivitamin said they came onto markets. but there isn't data to recommend this from before. this is the first large, randomized control to show a possible benefit. as of now there's no fda approved intervention to give to americans to protect cognitive function. when you look at the impact this could have, 6.5 million americans with alzheimer's disease, finding something that is safe, affordable, accessible, and effective could have a
4:25 am
public health impact. >> is that one of the most important takeaways here, it gives older or aging americans something to do, do this and it'll help? >> for so many people when you talk to them what they fear when they get older, in some cases it's not a heart attack or other diseases, it's a loss of the essence of themselves. the takeaway is this is not practice change yet, it's a study that needs to be replicated with more research, larger studies, more diverse population. so at this point the recommendation is try to get your nutrients through inddiet, exercise, control stress, quit smoking, control alcohol consumption do mental stimulation exercises, social interaction. >> you say i have to talk to people. >> you do. >> what about risks with multivitamins? >> it's a great question.
4:26 am
just the supplement industry in general we tend to say multivitamins are safe but in some individuals depending on underlying conditions, what other medical conditions you have, medications you take, there may be a risk. so it's good to talk about it. and the supplement industry is not regulated by the fda it's considered a food, the products are on the market, they don't have to be tested for safety, labels don't have to be looked at for safety. many can have compounds, chemicals other drugs that can land you in the emergency room or hospitalized. important to talk to your doctor about what supplements you're taking. >> and be aware. thank you so much. king charles about to lead a procession through the streets of london behind the casket carrying queen elizabeth. we have special live coverage ahead. coming up the note left inside an exploding package on a college campus.

thousands of mourners waiting there outside of buckingham palace. some have actually camped out overnight and they're hoping to catch a glimpse of the queen's hearse when in about two hours it leaves buckingham palace for westminster hall. at 2:22 local time the hearse leaves for a 38 minute procession down the hall. goes past the prime minister's residence, past parliament square, the king, his siblings, prince william and harry will walk behind the casket. and after a short service at westminster, the queen's casket will lie in state for the next five days until the state funeral on september 19th. i want to bring in former deputy chair of the british museum, bonnie greer.
4:32 am
and author mike saunders. bonnie, describe what we can expect to see today. >> i can't do that very well because i don't know the schedule. but i can tell you what's behind me. and what's behind me is the mile leading down to the palace. these are the people who are standing there, frankly, waiting for a glimpse of the cavalcade coming by that will include the royal family. >> bonnie, do you have a sense from being in london for so long, the people gathered there overnight how much is to pay the respects, mourn the loss, how much is to be a national event, to be part of this day, and how much of it may be support for the royal project going forward? >> john, that's a brilliant question. i actually haven't heard anybody
4:33 am
ask me that. this is large lay royalist crowd, these are the people who support the monarchy. so what the world is seeing is a slice of british culture at this point in time. there's enormous controversy going on here. the country is not that united. so what we're seeing is a kind of block of the bloish public. it's a beautiful block, it's a strong block but these are the people who are here for the weddings, the funerals, whatever. this is a very particular slice of the british public. >> mark, i don't think we can overstate how much planning it takes to pull something like this off, right? >> that's very true. but remember, they have had preparation for a considerably long time. i'm not sure i agree with bonnie about the country being divided. i come from the south of england, which is a monarchy loyalty heartland.
4:34 am
>> that's country going away. >> yeah. you can see here not just a tribute to her majesty's reign, it's the british people coming together in a time when times are not particularly good and i think what is unique about this, i don't know how bonnie will feel, but the queen dying in scotland, her final gift, if you like, to the country was to unite the kingdom. >> i think -- i would say that is true. and i didn't mean to overstate what i said, because you're absolutely right. in scotland, for instance, she was known as not queen elizabeth of great britain. she was queen elizabeth -- elizabeth queen of scots. so in scotland the king is charles, king of scots. the prince of wales is lord of the aisles. what i mean by that, it's important for the world to know this is a very diverse country, complex country. yes, people are coming together,
4:35 am
yes, they are united around the death of this great woman, great public servant as well. but underneath there are and have been eruptions. scotland wants to declare independence, so it's going to be an interesting reign for charles iii. can i also add something that's interesting. the lying in -- what we call in america, the wake -- will be in westminster hall. very old hall but the largest for some time in europe. but also where charles i had his trial for treason. so that's going to be, you know, sort of very interesting juxtaposition. >> it's the most historic room you could possibly have something like that take place in, right, westminster. >> absolutely. >> mark, this procession today as the thousands of people who are there to watch this glimpse it, yes, they will be seeing king charles, yes, they will be seeing the princes and the
4:36 am
children of queen elizabeth, that's what they'll be literally looking at. but what do you think they're there to see? what do you think they'll be assessing as they watch this? >> they are here to say good-bye to the queen. it's the final view we will ever have of her majesty. king charles and i'm finding it hard to say king charles, i keep -- >> it is hard. >> i keep getting it wrong. king charles and the senior members of the royal family, we will see a lot of them. they're the future of the monarchy in this country. so we will see a great deal of them. and another thing which i don't know if you know this, bonnie, but the minor royals have come to the fore over the last few days, sophie wes sex and her daughter, and astonishing camilla. i never thought the queen consort would capture the affection of the british public but she has. it wouldn't say a radical change but definitely a change of
4:37 am
perception of the monarchy now which is what usually happens when you get a new monarch. but so far, so good. >> i think it's down to the late queen, she got that right. she roped in charles pretty soon after he married camilla. they got in, and charles very wisely brought his eldest son into the firm. so this is absolutely right. this is the first time this is going to be working, quite a few younger royal as well. we have big families now. so it's going to be really a lot of them kicking in. and sophie wessex -- she loved all of her daughters-in-law she adores sophie wessex. >> this is going to be a sight to see. bonnie greer, mark saunders, we thank you both of you for being with us. >> thank you for having us. we've been looking at the thousands of people lining the streets to watch the procession and talking to people waiting in

margaret you volunteered? >> i signed up. the rule in almost all things in life when you're in a hole, stop digging. republicans are in a hole on the issue of choice, on dobbs, the overturning of roe v. wade. this is not going well. what we can see from all the polling and voter registration, especially with women in key states in the election is that the gains that democrats have made has blunted, severely blunted potentially the advantage republicans had historically going into this election. so what mitch mcconnell needs lindsey graham to stop doing is talking about abortion. and what lindsey graham is trying to do is talking about the very specific slice of the issue that republicans win on, which is when you talk about late term abortion and republicans are losing because the entire debate is now about the fact that women have lost a right that they had for 50 years
4:47 am
because of a conservative court. >> it's interesting. sorry, go ahead. >> the timing also as a republican was frustrating because yesterday the terrible inflation numbers come out. that's what the republicans need to run on, ahead of the midterms. the economy is struggling, the inflation reduction act hasn't done enough to drive down costs but instead lindsey graham consumes the news cycle by going rogue against republican orthodox, which this is should be determined by states. mitch mcconnell is smart to not bring it up, that will cripple -- >> it's not a real bill. if you want to pass a bill you get mitch mcconnell on your side first, you don't surprise him with a press conference with the activist groups and special interest on the far right. >> the question is why lindsey graham is walking across the street to punch himself in the face. >> poor lindsey. >> that's what he's doing to the republican party right here. hanging a lantern on the fact there's hypocrisy on the issue
4:48 am
of state's rights, this is o opposite. republicans saying for a long time it shouldn't be decided by the courts, it should be despited by the states. we saw lindsey graham say that in august and now reversing it. if there is an attempt to excite the base i think they're fired up but it hangs a lantern on their problem and it doesn't help in this case. >> you were going to say? >> conservatives are for the states determining it, unless, of course, congress were to pass a federal bill. what they were never for is for the court determining it. >> it's the same thing. it undercuts the argument. >> my first question is why lindsey graham is doing this. i'm not satisfied there's a clear answer. >> go ahead. >> look, what we know about this issue, which is a very difficult issue, is that actually the country is mostly united. most people don't want late term abortions. most people want restrictions around if -- restrictions but
4:49 am
protections, frankly, around the ability for women to have an abortion in first trimester and early term. we are also mostly agreed about that but the republican party staked out an extreme position and they're losing on it. if they talk about the part everybody agrees with, perhaps lindsey thinks this will change if issue and the conversation around republicans losing on the issue. >> my best interpretation is he's pulling back a relic when roe was the law of the land. my party voted on a bill that would ban abortion at 20 weeks. most people believe in access but some restrictions on abortion. after the dobbs decision, the republicans were saying this should be determined by the states. so for republicans to come in with this law is negating the
4:50 am
argument we were making. >> republicans were saying no there won't be a national abortion ban and what's lindsey graham saying? >> there's going >> as with most things, there is a centrist solution that could unite the vast majority of the american people, but the extremes keep hijacking the argument. >> by the way, where's lindsey graham on abortion -- excuse me, not abortion, but codifying marriage equality. many republicans who don't want to have federally said it's a state's issues. that could come into conflict. >> if you're a democrat right now, planning on what to do with this, what's your next step? >> keep let them talking about it. keep let them going. keep giving them all the rope they need to hang themselves. >> he gave you a gift. >> unfortunately, it was a gift to democrats. i think that the republicans need to just be focusing on the economy and it took the wind out of the sails of what was frankly not a great event for biden at the white house yesterday. it was this weird, like, why did we have james taylor there to
4:51 am
like celebrate the economy's not doing very well, continuing to go forward with the event after having these bad inflation numbers. that's where the party should be. unfortunately, we're running on election denialism and, you know, restricting access to abortion. >> there's never a bad time to hear fire and reign, but that -- obviously, republicans want to be talking about inflation and crime, so lindsey graham does them no help, but also republican primary voters aren't helping their case either. >> let's talk about that. let's talk about what happened in new hampshire. we should note, they are still counting votes in new hampshire, but that one candidate in the republican senate primary has conceded, chuck morris who was backed by the establishment, including the governor chris sununu, backed by establishment republican money, a lot of it, conceded, to don bollick, a retired brigadier general, who is seen as very trumpy, for lack of a better word there. so what does this tell us,
4:52 am
alyssa? >> it just shows the squl overwhelming maga control over the party. chris sununu would have been the best recruit to beat maggie hassan. why would a very popular governor who could stay in his seat forever want to stay in the senate in this environment. now we've got somebody who almost guarantees an uphill battle for republicans to flip that seat. also, new hampshire one, carolyn leavitt who worked for me. i was a matt mowers backer in this. he's someone who could have been a stronger general election candidate against chris papas. this further right caroline. >> i think it does folks almost a disservice to say they're trumpy. i mean, let's talk about what that means. that means election denial is a litmus test. that means the case of the new candidate who worked for you that thinks that joe biden should be impeached is true reflexively. in the case of this retired
4:53 am
general, calling the incredibly popular chris sununu, the governor of the state, a communist sympathizer. we're talking, we're talking detached from reality as well as the vast majority of voters in new hampshire, where plurality voters are registered independents. >> and there was good turnout there. a lot of independents may have very well shown up to vote. i do want to pose one question here. one thing, the media, i think, has criticized a great deal what democrats have done in a lot of these races, which is put money in there to try to boost the election denier candidates, right? and if we could put back on the screen, the margins right now in that senate race, you can see that don bolduc is only winning by a little bit. the democrats are getting what they want. they may be criticized -- i'm not putting a value judgment on it. there's a lot of talk about whether it's the right or wrong thing to do. the only thing is, they're getting what they want up and down the board.
4:54 am
>> they'll -- well, that story -- that chapter is not finished, because of the end of the book is in november. they have to win against those election denying primary candidates. then, that's the end of the story. if this isn't an advertisement for moderate republicans to really reflect on how to reform the primary system so that they can get competitive candidates that can win nationally, i don't know what is. i will say i've been saying this for six years. it's weirdly bringing me closer to john avlon's centrist position, but truly, i mean, there is a real opportunity to look. look at rank choice voting. we've got to keep our eye on that in alaska as that's coming up. maybe that keeps someone like sarah palin from taking that seat back. and then there will be a playbook. >> we're getting the royal hook here, guys. i do support anything that brings you two closer together. >> all right. just a short time from now, we are going to see the royal
