tv The Lead With Jake Tapper CNN November 25, 2022 1:00pm-2:00pm PST
night, thursday you ate the food, friday it was its best. saturday, you're pushing it. sunday ain't no more leftover [ bleep ]. tuesday you're tripping. wednesday hospital. thursday dead. >> y'all, please don't make it to thursday with the leftovers still in the fridge. i tweeted that out if you couldn't grab a pen for the calendar. the guidance of department of health and human services. it's not far off of that. it foodsafety.gov web site advise leftovers be left in the fridge for three to four days. they say not enough consumers know that food can become unsafe in the refrigerator after four days. today is the day it's its best. "the lead" starts right now. if you're not into shopping
and over entertaining family, here's an alternative. "the lead" starts right now. drama on the high seas. a man van uishes from a cruise ship. how did he go from drinks with his sister to on the sea alone. >> and a push for in-person voting instead of online ballots. and black friday shoppers come out in droves. the surge despite inflation and recession fears. welcome to "the lead." i'm kasie hunt in today for jake tapper. local officials have released a note found on the shooter's phone titled death note and was filled with grievances he had with himself and colleagues. the city of chesapeake also identified the youngest victim
of the massacre, 16-year-old fernando chavez barone. in the wake of this shooting and the night club in colorado, president biden said he will push for new gun bans, including on semiautomatic rifles. >> we go to chesapeake, virginia. >> he had the gun up to my forehead and -- and it's just really hard. >> reporter: tonight chilling new doughetails released by pol report that the man who killed six employees at walmart bought the weapon earlier that day. officials releasing screen shots found on the gounman's phone, te title "death note ."
he said his co-workers were mocking him and he writes, quote, "i wish i could have saved everyone from myself. my god, forgive me for what i'm going to do." while he spoke of specific people in the note, police say none of them were his victims and the names were redacted for privacy. cnn reached out to walmart to see if the shooter had any complaints against him, had been disciplined or demoted. walmart responded, quote, there is nothing that can justify taking innocent lives. one employee told us she had been warned about the gunman. >> i am knew but i heard from the beginning he was the one to watch out for. >> reporter: the youngest victim, 16-year-old fernando chavez barone. he used his first paycheck to buy gifts for his mother. >> i was hoping everything was a
dream. i wish he was still here standing with me. >> reporter: with two people still in the hospital, dozens gathered thursday to pray for the victims. as the community struggles to move forward, the survivor can't stop reliving the terror. >> the sound of the droplets, it replays and replays and replays and replays. of how much blood was coming off the different chairs. it was making a rhythm and it was one of the most disturbing things. i think we'll never let go of that. >> the mayor of chesapeake, rick west, has announced a vigil for the victims will be held in chesapeake on monday evening. at this time walmart still not answering our questions about
whether discipline reports had been written about the shooter or any action taken against him. >> thanks very much for that report. let's turn to those comments by president biden and his renewed push for more gun laws, including a ban on some automatic weapons. we go to massachusetts where the president and his family are spending the holiday. what else are we hearing from president biden? >> reporter: he renewed his plan for a saw weapons ban. you've seen president biden in the wake of mass shooting in this country call for this ban on assault weapons and yesterday he shared his frustration with the sales of some semiautomatic weapons in this country. take a listen. >> the idea we still allow semiautomatic weapons to be purchased is sick. it's just sick.
it has no, no social redeeming value. zero. none. not a single solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers. >> reporter: the president said he would have to assess whether the votes are there for an assault weapons ban. they've attempted in the past to get these measures in place and passed and the votes haven't existed. it will get even more complicated once divided government started in january. while first lady and joe biden were here in nantucket, they also placed a phone call to the owner of club q, the lgbtq night club that saw the mass shooting just last weekend and the president is wrapping up his nantucket thanksgiving weekend here, taking a stroll through town, about to go to the christmas tree lighting here. >> arlette sienz, thank you for
being with us. >> you just heard president biden renew his call to pass some assault weapons ban. we know the votes aren't there. why should we think it would be different? >> what we have to do is put the votes up on the committee on the floor and challenging the congress and senators, are you going to step aside and allow these horrible incidents day after day and continue or are you willing to put your own career on the line and save americans with sensible gun legislation? the president is absolutely correct -- no assault weapons. back in 1989 i was a state
senator in california, the very first school shooting with assault weapons. that led to a ban in california and ultimately a ten-year national ban. it can be done. it seems as though congress, the member of congress have an unlimited appetite for violence. we have to stop that. we simply have to be held accountable. we have to have decent legislation, assault weapons and, by the way, to be able to go out and buy a semiautomatic pistol, the very same day that you intend to shoot somebody is absolutely crazy. you have to wait a month to buy a couch, you have to wait three, four months to buy an electric vehicle. you ought to be able to have a law in place, which we do in california, that you cannot go into a store and walk out with a pistol. you're going to have to wait a few days for the background checks as well as for time to cool off. >> so the reality is of course that the house is going to be controlled by republicans come january. there were 14 house republicans who voted with democrats to pass
some bipartisan gun legislation earlier this summer, but just five of them are going to be coming back to the next congress. have you reached out to them or any other republicans to see if there's a deal that they would be willing to make with you? >> well, we do have a caucus in the house, both democrats and republicans, mike thompson, my colleague from california is the leader of that. we constantly do that. but my point is those of us who want sane, rational gun safety law need to continue to introduce those pieces of legislation and try to get the committees to hear them and we try to get the bills on the floor for a vote and there are ways of doing that. in other words, all of us have to be held accountable in this legislative, as well as the next one, which begins in january. are we for rational safety? are we going to continue to
stand for the slaughter all across this nation? are we willing to put our krees on the line, challenge the nra, the gun lobbyists and have a go at it. as it did with the bill that the president did sign. >> are house democrats going to do that in the next couple months? >> yes, we will. we will continue to do so. you will see an assault weapons ban, it's already on the floor, it's already in a committee. it was on the floor. it hasn't had a vote yet. in the next congress you can be certain that democrats and republicans, some, will push forward with rational gun safety laws. >> okay. i mean, it doesn't seem likely with a republican speaker of the house but i do take your point. before i let you go, i do want to ask you about something that happened to you personally.
earlier had week prosecutors unsealed charges against a michigan man for sending you and the fbi director, christopher wray, death threats and you have said you told us, cnn, that you and your fellow lawmakers don't have the security that you need. who's to blame for that lapse, that failure? >> well, we do have security. if there's a direct threat then, yes, woe do have security. that security is available to us and we do take range of it while that threat is active. in this case hopefully this fellow is arrested and he and any others want to threaten other official, whether members of congress or senators or even election officials who are volunteering. if there is a death threat, that's a crime and they ought to be prosecuted and they ought to be spending time in jail. but, yes, we do have security when there's a however, as long
as this violent hate rhetoric is out there, they're going to continue to will listen to the conspiracy theories and all the w and they have come to believe that it is their place on this oert to take action. we need to be aware of hate speech and tone it down. what's going to happen on twitter is very, very frightening. if elon musk his hand ons for violence and all kinds of conspiracy theory. by the way, just seems to me there ought to be a law that these web sites, twitter and facebook and all the other, they are free from any accountability at all. the current law simply allows
anything to be there ought to be a law that says, okay, it's free speech but you're responsible. >> you're talking about section 230, something congress was focused on. democratic congressman john garamendi, thanks very much for your time, sir. >> thank you, kasey. in mexico, a new arrest warrant after a north carolina woman on a trip with college friends ended up dead. and a cruise ship rescue. a man ended up in the water for 15 hours. how in the world did he survive all that time?

they know whom they're locking for? >> reporter: yeah, there's so many questions in this. you think about this, six friends traveling to mexico with this young lady to have a good time and on the first day this attack happened. you heard that language that they used. this was a direct attack. i can tell you there's video out there on social media that shows this attack happening for several seconds. this woman was traveling with people she considered her college friends. the big question is what happened, why no one stepped in and why was the video posted to social media? why are there no other charges? social media has been keeping this story alive. the mother involved in this case is so very upset that the friends not only maybe told her a different story but it taking this long. take a listen. >> on saturday evening they
called and said she wasn't feeling well and they was going to call a doctor. but when they called the doctor hadn't arrived yet but they said show had alcohol poisoning. we received the autopsy report on thursday and it said that her neck had been broke. >> so you understand how crazy this was in terms of -- i've seen the video. we can't air it just yet but she's being hit over and over. her dad has confirmed to us that's her in the video. we're still working to see exactly what happened and when mexico authorities can make this arrest. still trying to figure all the pieces out in this one. >> ryan young, thanks very much for that report. >> let's turn to what the coast guard is calling a thanksgiving miracle. a man fell overboard on a carnival cruise ship and he was in the water for 15 hours before
he was rescued. >> i think it kind of blows the normalcy out of the water here. >> reporter: a miraculous rescue at sea after a passenger went overboard. the man was reported missing thursday around noon. he had last seen around 11 p.m. thursday by his sister leaving a bar aboard the ship, which had left port bound for cozumel, mexico. >> he realistically could have been in the water 15-plus hours before we were able to rescue him. >> reporter: since so much time had passed since he was last seen, the rescue search was more challenging. >> time was certainly of the essence. >> reporter: ultimately the crew located him about 20 miles south of southwest pass, louisiana where the coast guard was able to helicopter in and hoist the man out of the water for safety.
he's in the hospital undergoing medical evaluation and was reportedly in stable condition. >> he was able to identify his name and confirm he was the individual who fell overboard. he was showing signs of hypothermia, shock, dehydration. >> carnival cruise line expressing their gratitude. >> the will to live is something that you need to account for in every search and rescue case. >> reporter: this man's will to survive leaving even those who rescued him in awe. >> this is one of the absolute longest that i've heard about and one of those thanksgiving miracles. >> earlier we learned the temperature of the water where he was found was around 70 degrees, so that temperature may have contributed to keeping him alive for as long as he was in the water. still so many details we do not have as we're waiting to hear from the coast guard.
this man is going to have one story from here on out. >> he sure is. >> next up here. inflation what? recession who? black friday off to a booming start. at t-mobile. wow! at t-mobile, geget four iphone 14's on us and four new lines for $25 bucks a line. i'm a vegas hotel. i know what you're thinking. it's cool, i don't want anything long term either. just a few nights fun. i'm looking for someone who will let loose, dress up a little, see a show, order e steak, and the lobster. some people say i'm excessive, but who cares. i just want to enjoy some late nights. and some very late checkouts. think you can keep up? and i'm going to tell you about exciting medicare advantage plans that can provide broad coverage and still may save you money on
monthly premiums and prescription drugs. with original medicare you are covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits but you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you're still responsible for 20% of the cost. next, let's look at a medicare supplement plan. as you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and coinsurance. but they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. now, let's take a look at humana's medicare advantage plans. with a humana medicare advantage plan, hospitals stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. and, of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. with no copays or deductibles on tier 1 prescriptions, and zero dollars for routine vaccines, including shingles, at in-network retail pharmacies.
in fact, in 2021, humana medicare advantage prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $9,600 on average on their prescription costs. most humana medicare advantage plans have coverage for vision and hearing. and dental coverage that includes two free cleanings a year, plus dentures, crowns, fillings and more! most humana medicare advantage plans include a silver sneakers fitness program at no extra cost. you get all of this for as low as a zero-dollar monthly plan premium in many areas; and your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana's large network. there is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network; to find out if you could save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. humana, a more human way to healthcare. dove 0% is different. we left aluminum out and put 48 hours freshness and 1 quarter moisturizers... in.
about today's retail numbers? >> reporter: kasie, deals and discounts are expected to bring out the shoppers. 115 million today just today are expected to shop with a little more that half shopping in store. would you believe yesterday, yes, was thanksgiving and people were doing more than just eating their turkey. they were shopping on line. $5.2 billion was spent online. if you look at the month of november, the 24th of november, $77 billion has been spent between november 1st and november 24th. i had to look twice at that number. it's incredible. >> that does seem extremely high. >> that's just online. >> is there any indication of how inflation is impacting
shoppers? >> reporter: you make a really good point there. inflation is really the elephant in the room for all these shoppers that i've been talking to today. the trick is is to try to shop in a way where inflation is not going to eat into their budgets too much because it is impacting their spending power. a lot of shoppers said they are doing their best to stick to their budgets and they're really focusing on deals and discounts and navigating what they're going to buy based on that discount to save money and keep the holiday imamagic alive desp what we're all feeling. >> if anything, it's made me more cognizant of when these sales are happening. >> they're shopping and eating and in georgia voting is now on this holiday weekend to do list. it comes after election officials are encouraging georgians to vote early in person due to the tight turn around time to send in mail-in
and absentee ballots. i like to thank you, gentlemen, for joining me this afternoon. congressman, for two election cycles in a row, republicans have really fought early voting and mail-in ballot, former president trump was particularly on this. there was no red wave this year. i want you to hear what sean hannity pro toeposed on fox thi week. >> do republicans and conservatives need to get over the reluctance and resistance to mail-in ballots and early voting that they seem to show? >> there's no doubt we need to use every tool we can to turn out votes, every tool that is legal. >> is it impossible for republicans to embrace the idea after their leaders have fought so hard against it for the past four years? >> i think sean hannity asked the right question. of course republicans must get over this resistance to mail-in
and early voting. i've argued for some time. it's not the method that matters. it's not hard to vote in this country. we know that. i don't know why we do this. it's all because of donald trump telling people not to vote by mail. it was a form of voter suppression was trump was suppressing the republicans vote. absolutely republicans need to embrace it. republicans voting by mail in florida and utah very effectively for a long time. y jwe just need to tell voters o do it for it to be effective. >> bakari, what's your take? >> democrats have taken advantage of no-excuse early voting and with the recent changes in pennsylvania, congressman dent probably knows that better than anyone on this
panel. when you have a mobilizing tools, for example, souls to the polls, you've seen state legislatures eliminate that last day where individuals went to church and then went to the polls immediately after church, hence the name souls to the polls. democrats have always been trying to open up the ballot box and make it free and fair and safe and ensure echb has access to it. i hear my friend charlie on the other side, but you had a republican concerted effort in georgia to eliminate the last saturday voting in favor of keeping it closed because of robert e. lee's holiday. when you have that jeks pa position, you have to wonder how are you going to get your voters mobilized to vote early, safely and freely. >> this runoff is not going to determine what party controls the senate. weep know it's going to be the democrats but it could help get
the democrats more power to allow president biden more power if they can get 51 votes. how important is this vote, congressman? >> if krdemocrats get 51-49, they'll have total control of the committees. if they get an extra vote, that will help them getting bills to the floor. it gives them an enormous advantage. it doesn't change the fundamental dynamics that in the senate. you'll still need bipartisan compromises. if i were the democrats, i'd probably be feeling pretty good about georgia. kemp is not on the ballot. right now the democrats really want that 51-49. >> it's going to be interesting
to see which side is better able to motivate their candidates. let's turn to what's left on the table here for congress. we are less than six weeks away from the new congress being sworn in and the control of the house will be turned over to republicans. democrats are racing to get things across. some things include funding the government. they want to try and raise the debt ceiling. is it possible to get all those line items across the finish line in the time they've got left? >> i think so and the common sense republicans who kind of knew they were going to have insanity kind of ruled the day. nobody envies kevin mccarthy because controlling that caucus is going to be just an unenviable task. so you're going to have a large
group of individuals, of pass some bills that are good for our credit rate, that are good for the efficiency of just every day life, things that are necessary. i don't think you're going to have a great deal of problem because of the fear that is palpable in washington, d.c., which i think we can all label as being nothing more than chaos. >> i think the debt ceiling is going to be a real test. i'm glad you mentioned mccarthy. he's secure but right now five have said they are going to vote no. you can see them there on your korean. how tough is this for mccarthy? >> i think it's going to be brutally tough for kevin mccarthy to get to 218.
if we cannot get there to 218, i was there and to secure a certain number of democrats and the rest. never got off the ground because paul ryan stepped up. congressman bakeman of nebraska, if republicans can't get 218 republican votes, then maybe we have to put together some kind of a coalition. this could happen. i'm not saying it will but the threat of that might be enough to get some of those very far right republicans to come back on. >> i can't imagine that they would. this may be as much as a political reporter's pipe dream.
anyone, you don't have to be member of house to be speaker of the house. bakari. >> no thank you! i do not want that job. snoo thank you very much for being us with on this friday after thananksgiving. was there -- we'e're live comin up next. everything with diet and exercise, and nothing worked. there was just kinda this stubborn area on my stomomach. but coolsculpting g worked for ! coolsculpting targets, freezes and eliminates treated fat for good. no needles, no incisions. discuss coolsculpting with your provider. some common side effects include temporary numbness, discomfort and swelling. you've come this far... coolsculpting takes you further. visit coolsculpting.com

little bit of a leftdown. i p b-- but i think both teams e let down. it's really interesting the progress that the american league had made. they know a lot of the guys they were playing up against. i would say the u.s. team if you look at the highlights actually had the better of the first half or at least they had the better chances. westin mcand mason mount drawing a good save from right turner off harry kane. both teams have one more game to play. england, all they have to do is not lose too heavily to wales in their final game. think probably already done just
about now. if they're through, loose, they go home. >> tough! andy shoals, you're at a watch party in atlanta, georgia. i have to say i've gotten a lot of disappointment from my friends who watched this. how did. >> we're not used to ties in the sporting world. i would say that was one of the more why wrrk and the band i talked to before the match, they were pointing to the revolutionary war in 1776 and the upset back in 1950 to why they weri
they were going to do well today. guess what? they played really well. up see some fans filing out. and they were happy with the way they played. many of them think this is a great way to get momentum building in the gym -- i don't know about that st. georges cross. you've clearly got some english fans in that pub with you. i can't imagine there were any in a pub or bar where you may have been. what's the mood there? >> reporter: some 700 people filed out of here pretty quickly after that match. and heading into this, there was so much confidence. i was told. >> there's nothing between
england and when it plays you usa games in world cup. specifically, 2010, there was a draw. 1950, the u.s. actually won. but i've got huge respect, admiration for my colleague. >> well, our hats are tipped to you, andy and don. anna, to you as well. we hope you really enjoyed your reporting today. >> brau. we speak to a doctor who is willing to risk it all.

in our world lead, a united nations fact-finding mission will look into iran's violent crackdown on protests. as many as 14,000 have been arrested, 2,000 charged, and six sentenced to death over demonstrations following the suspicious death of mahsa amini, also known as gina amini. lawmakers are calling for protesters to be taught a good lesson to deter those who threaten the authority of the government. we spoke with one protester determined to keep going. >> reporter: iranians have been risking it all for freedom, to break free of the shackles of a repressive regime that's brutality and bullets are only fueling the anger of those on the streets, making them more
defiant than ever. >> i know the islamic republic is ruling the country, i couldn't do my duty. >> reporter: this doctor we're not identifying for safety reasons was one of hundreds of medical professionals who gathered last month for a demonstration organized by their council, and it was broken up. doctors tell cnn at least one person was killed, many injured, including one shot in the eyes and blinded. >> as soon as i arrived, the area had all kind of forces, plainclothes forces, it was too much and they literally shoot everyone that was walking down the sidewalk off the street. i have bruises, multiple bruises in front of my body and back, and all of them were above my waist. but i saw injuries where they
beat a lot, electric shock. >> reporter: just for going out and protesting you could go to jail or get killed. >> it's not just that. it could be worse. we wish they would kill us on the streets rather than arrest us. >> because of all the horrors in detention facilities, all these risks, the threats to you and to your family, that's not stopping you and others? >> of course not. they killed more than 1,500 in three days, in less than a week a few years ago. we know it could happen. all of us will continue. there is no other way. we came from a long journey and we realize that islamic republic cannot change and don't want to change. it is our duty to our next generation to fight it and hopefully change it. >> reporter: only iranians can change it. this protester and others say
they believe the international community can do more than just watch, condemn and announce symbolic sanctions. >> they could close islamic republic ambassadors, united nations, unicef need to pay more attention. we need actual action. the most important question is, are they willing to do that or not, to stand on the right side of history or not? >> and, casey, for the first time the international community has taken action. the human rights council voted to establish a fact-finding mission that will investigate human rights violations during the protests. it will collect, preserve and analyze evidence that could be used to hold the perpetrators accountable. many are hoping this could be the beginning of the end of decades and decades of impunity in iran. >> thank you for staying on top of this important story.

season, which is only just a matter of weeks long, there have been 38,000 hospitalizations with flu in the united states and about 2,100 deaths. now, covid, we don't hear about it much anymore and the numbers are way lower, but still more than 300 deaths a day from covid and 3,400 hospitalizations. so if you want to avoid all the germs out there, it's all the same stuff we've been hearing since covid began, which is if you want to, wear the mask, and if you want to practice social distancing, stay away from big crowds, especially when they're indoors. i think one of the most important things we need to think about, kasie, if you're young and healthy, that's one thing. if you have friend and family who are immune compromised or elderly, what might you be able to do to help them stay healthier? maybe you should be more careful around them, wear a mask or keep your distance. they're the vulnerable and this time of year when we're indoors in gatherings, we should really
be thinking about them. >> of course. there's also this new study that i want to ask you about, challenging this notion that i think we've all been taught forever, that we need to drink eight glasses of water a day. what is the update? >> right, it's so interesting. that's become such a part of sort of the lore. we don't know where this eight glasses a day came from. it didn't come from anything scientific, but it has taken on a life of its own. so let's take a look at what this study did. it's quite fascinating. this was a large international study, they had 5,600 study participants and they gave them water to drink and it had isotopes so they could follow through and see how much of the water got used by the body and how much was excreted. it was a huge range, how much water the body used ranged from four cups a day to 25 cups a day. the amount depended on physical activity, more physical activity needed more water. also on gender, men seemed to
need more water than women do. weight, and also climate, if you live in a hot and humid place. so a really big range of what people need, to the point where the cdc doesn't give advice on how much water to drink every day. let's take a look at this really interesting chart that the cleveland clinic has. they have a chart that says if urine is pale in color, you are good. if it's an amber or honey color, you're mildly dehydrated. more brown, that means that you're really dehydrated. a lot of experts say look at your urine, that's most important. >> elizabeth cohen, thanks very much for that report. and coming up sunday on "state of the union," democratic congressman adam schiff and republican governor asa hutchinson join democrat senator chris murphy sunday morning at 9:00 and again at noon. our coverage continues right now in "the situation room." happening now, extme
