tv   Fox News at Night With Shannon Bream  FOX News  August 4, 2021 9:00pm-10:00pm PDT

9:00 pm
it's midnight. what are you doing up? you are staring at me. set your dvrs to never miss an episode. thinks of the great larry kudlow, lara trump, kat timpf, tyrus. our studio audience. "fox news @ night" with evil shannon bream is next. i'm greg gutfeld. i love you, america. ♪ ♪ >> hello and welcome to "fox news @ night." i am shannon bream in washington. breaking tonight, more than a million members of the u.s. military now facing a vaccine mandate. the secretary of defense is expected to announce the new policy this week. it should active duty personnel be forced to get inoculated to serve their country? do they have a legal right to say no? we have the breaking details on the live report.
9:01 pm
rental property owners left holding the bag as the cdc extends a nationwide eviction moratorium. landlords with their own bills to pay or sharing horror stories of tenants trashing their homes and not paying rent for months. one group has filed an emergency filing tonight. "fox news @ night" investigates. your governor andrew cuomo is not budging despite mounting pressure from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for him to r. following the bombshell report that he sexually harassed 11 women. what's next? impeachment, criminal charges? we've got your update. we begin with new orders for the men and women of the armed forces to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated and that's an order, or soon will be. lauren blanchard has details. >> good evening. president biden has said he wants federal employees to roll up your sleeves for the vaccine but we are learning tonight that secretary of defense is planning to ask the president to require active military be vaccinated. >> we expect the formal
9:02 pm
announcement to come friday from the secretary of defense, lloyd austin, that all 1.3 million active duty forces will need to receive the covid-19 vaccine. right now about 64% of active-duty military members are fully vaccinated. slightly higher than the percentage of fully vaccinated american adults were u.s. personnel are sent all over the world. sent all over the world. some on vaccinated troops cannot be deployed. we had an idea this could be coming. days ago president biden said adding covid-19 to the list of required vaccinations for active-duty military was a top priority. >> our men and women in uniform protect this country from grave threats. should be protected as much as possible from getting covid-19. >> a waiver directly from president biden would give the defense attorney the power to require vaccination. right now only fully fda
9:03 pm
approved vaccines can be mandated for the military. all three u.s. vaccines are still under emergency use authorization. the fda is working to speed up approval of the pfizer vaccine, but it does not appear the pentagon is willing to wait around. >> he's not going to let grass grow under his feet. we'll have more to say in short order. >> in february as vaccines were still slowly rolling out, top pentagon officials testified to congress that roughly one-third of troops did not want the vaccine. almost six months later, it appears that percentage of hesitant troops has not significantly changed. >> there's a general lack of trust any time the is involved. whether you're talking about the anthrax vaccine back in the day that cause problems or burn pits are all these things that the military is used as a guinea pig. >> secretary austin previously said he was not comfortable with mandating the vaccine until it was fully approved by the fda but without the cases rising,
9:04 pm
the secretary of defense may have changed his mind. shannon. >> shannon: lauren, the other big question, the school years beginning in most places in a matter of days. a lot of questions about what that's going to look like the kids going back. the education secretary has outlined his plan for reopening schools but that the national idea. where do things stand tonight? >> he basically laid out three points called the return to school road map. he said the goal is in person schooling five days a week. but with that, it also comes a big push to get those 12 and older vaccinated. and it means wearing masks for all students and teachers despite vaccination. that obviously has some parents and some leaders saying they will push back. some of those school bills we'll be hearing soon, they might be boxing bells with the number ofe lining up. >> shannon: some underway. thank you so much. talk to you again later. breaking tonight, at least ten
9:05 pm
people have been killed, 20 injured when a van carrying roughly 30 migrant workers veered off a remote south texas highway and slammed into utility pole. texas public safety officials say the driver, who was among those killed, was speeding around a curve on u.s. 281 in encino when he lost control of the van designed to hold just 15 passengers. there was no pursuit underway. we will keep tracking that story to make. the white house chief medical advisor is warning tonight that the number of coronavirus cases in the u.s. may double to 200,000 cases per day in the coming weeks. critics say dr. anthony fauci is simply scaremongering again and that millions of americans are now just tuning him out. what are the facts? let's bring in fox news medical contributor dr. marty makary. i think we might have the headline. it says fauci fears that a variant worse than delta is coming and says covid-19 cases
9:06 pm
may double. people are weary but they do want to know the truth. what are the facts? >> no variant has ever evaded the life protecting protection of vaccinated or natural immunity with the u.s. approved vaccines. we follow the new variance very closely on a national open-source web platform. anybody can go there. it is there are 19 major variants in each of the major variance has about five to 110. so we've had over a thousand variants, none of which have evaded the immune system so far in any appreciable degree. >> shannon: i want to ask about something caught my eye and my ear. this piece in the atlantic by an obama assistant secretary for homeland security saying "on vaccinated people need to bear the burden." she said the white house has rejected a nationwide vaccine mandate which i think the administration can do but she says a no-fly list for unvaccinated adults is an obvious step that the federal
9:07 pm
government should take. what do you make of that idea? >> well, this is a growing sentiment out there right now. a vitriol, real anger towards those who are unvaccinated. first of all, i would suggest that the lexicon is wrong. we should not be talking about the vaccinated and unvaccinated. it should be the immune and the nonimmune. about half of the unvaccinated have a reasonable cost to not be vaccinated and that is they got natural immunity. but there is this sentiment that we need to punish these people. so when you see proposals like we have to test the unvaccinated every day of their own expense which is what a former biden covid advisor recently suggested until they get vaccinated. that's the kind of culture war right now we have ignited and i can tell you is a doctor, many doctors will tell you they have a lot of experience taking care of people who don't want to do things that we ask them to do. you win more bees with honey than fire. >> shannon: let me play a little bit of florida governor ron desantis has been in the middle of some very heated fights.
9:08 pm
>> biden rejects science because he denies the fact that people recover from covid have long-lasting immunity. that's been proven time and time again in the data is very clear. >> shannon: i continue to read articles that say this is very unpopular thing to discuss. the mainstream media doesn't want to talk about it. the administration doesn't want to talk about the idea of natural immunity. what does it mean what's your advice as a doctor to those who do need to get vaccinated? >> natural immunity means that you've recovered from covid and you have immune protection from having those antibodies and the memory b sails and memory t cells that are activated. that immunity is good. it's effective and durable and a year and half into the pandemic, it's going strong. we have to watch it and study it. maybe it will wane over time up so far it appears that vaccinated immunity wanes more than natural immunity. we have more data on natural
9:09 pm
immunity because it's been around longer. a study of israel showed that natural immunity is about 6.7 times more effective than vaccinated immunity. you should still get the vaccine is your first choice if you're not immune from natural immunity. and you haven't had the infection. but if you have natural immunity, it appears to be solid. >> shannon: do you think we will see the numbers continue to go up with the latest fears about delta and the press from the white house? >> the models that i trust, the models that have been correct show that delta will peak in the next few weeks and then we will see a decline beginning at the end of august or early september. >> shannon: okay. we always appreciate your time. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: breaking tonight: a group of alabama landlords is fighting back against the cdc's new eviction moratorium. the alabama association of realtors asking a federal judge tonight to immediately lift the extension saying the new order was unlawful and done for nakedly political reasons and
9:10 pm
it's using litigation to achieve a policy objective. here's correspondent dan springer on who is putting that bill. >> and the centers for disease control extended the nationwide eviction moratorium for states with high covid infection rates it was another blow to rental property owners. days after the national apartment association through the federal government over losses of $27 billion in unpaid rent since eviction ban was put in place. >> we are in a situation where the economy is doing great. unemployment is 5.3%. we have people not paying their rent. the challenges as time goes on, more more people are not paying their rent. >> karl owns 250 rental units in seattle including this building where he says one tenant refused to pay rent for 16 months while trashing his apartment, and he still could not evict. >> we have tenants gaming the system. >> same problem, different tenants. he says he hasn't received any money since december even after
9:11 pm
allowing this renter to repair other people's cars on this property in hopes he would start making payments. >> the place turned into a dump. a lot of broken down cars, trash, oil all over the place. >> renter advocates say the bigger problem is $47 billion in covid rental assistance not getting distributed to tenants and landlords. just 7% of the funds have been paid out. >> we are literally up to our eyeballs in assisting tenants who are getting early notices that you're in fear of eviction. on top of that we have some of the highest rent increases in the nation. >> at least some of the rent increases can be attributed to the eviction moratorium. many small mom-and-pop landlords have been forced to sell their rental properties because they can't pay their bills. the first thing the new owners do? raise the rent. shannon. >> shannon: dan springer, thank you very much. tonight the pressure is building on new york governor andrew cuomo following their bombshell report by the
9:12 pm
state attorney general. as state lawmakers move forward with impeachment plans and criminal investigations are already underway. senior correspondent laura ingle has the latest tonight from new york. good evening, laura. >> hi, shannon. the tug-of-war between the governor who is insisting he's done nothing wrong and those calling for his resignation shows no sign of slowing down. >> [chanting] >> despite growing calls from both the public and lawmakers, new york governor andrew cuomo is not only refusing to step down. he is reportedly ramping up plans to fight back. according to politico, aids close to the governor say cuomo is pushing for a press conference to challenge the state attorney's report accusing him of harassing multiple women. the governor took his first defensive swing in a prerecorded message denying the allegation. >> for those who are using this moment to score political points
9:13 pm
or see publicity or personal gain, i say they actually discredit the legitimate sexual-harassment victims. >> governor cuomo's lawyers released photos of him hugging and kissing people over the years to illustrate that the governor's actions have been interpreted. but that's not how one accuser sees it. wednesday, former aide charlotte bennett says the governor often put her in uncomfortable situations and knew what he was doing when he asked her about her previous sexual assault. >> he was coming on to me. he insinuated that survivors of trauma and sexual assault can't tell the difference between mentorship and leadership. and sexual harassment itself, which is not only insulting to me but every survivor who listened to him yesterday. the victim blaming is not okay. >> a new york state senator is one of many democratic lawmakers prepared to start impeachment proceedings if the governor does not step down. >> there is no gray area, no may be, no scenario in which the
9:14 pm
governor survives this. it is over. >> district attorneys from several new york counties including albany, westchester, manhattan, and here in nassau, have requested evidence from the attorney general's office to help with ongoing investigations into potential criminal action. shannon. >> shannon: laura ingle in new york, thanks so much. tonight governor cuomo is a pariah among much of the mainstream media now turning on their one-time darling of the press. is also a major problem for one particular media personality. fox news media analyst and host of fox's "media buzz" howard kurtz has the story. >> i am chris cuomo. we are focused on covid. >> cnn's chris cuomo made no mention last night of the scandal that is threatening to drive his brother from office. cuomo was unable to address it because he and the network had decided he cannot cover the new york governor in any way. a marked contrast to last year, 11 appearances on his program when andrew cuomo was being
9:15 pm
hailed during the pandemic. >> thank you for coming back to the show. >> mom told me i had to. >> when the sexual harassment allegations surfaced, cnn reinserted an earlier ban's on cuomo on cuomo coverage. >> obviously i'm aware of what's going on with my brother, and obviously i cannot cover it because he is my brother. >> new york's attorney general uncovered new evidence of chris cuomo's involvement in helping his older brother. in february the cnn host email draft statement of denial to a top aide to his brother with such lines as "i never intended to offend anyone and my interactions may been insensitive or too personal, which is precisely with the governor statement said. the ag also confirmed that chris cuomo joint strategy calls with his mother and top officials. >> i understand why that was a problem for cnn. it will not happen again. it was a mistake. because i put my colleagues here who i believe are the best in
9:16 pm
the business in a bad spot. >> cnn called those efforts and appropriate but took no action and had no comment today. the media establishment has turned sharply against the governor who was lionized for his handling of covid-19. "the new york times" says if andrew cuomo cares of the people of the state, he should resign for "the washington post" says there is no longer any doubt about cuomo's fitness to remain in office. the cuomos are a close-knit democratic dynasty and of course chris cuomo is going to defend his mother but actively plotting his defense crosses the line. the larger mistake was for cnn to allow the courage when the governor was riding high and pull the plug when his political fortunes crash. shannon. >> shannon: howie kurtz, thanks so much. let's dig a little deeper into the political fall out of the cuomo revelations and the extension of the eviction worktime which the president seems to concede is probably unlawful. with tim murtaugh, great to see you.
9:17 pm
>> good to be with you. >> shannon: let's start with the cuomo case. national review says, they are referring to the virginia governor who was caught in a picture that was racist in nature is the easiest way to say it, whether he was the guy in blackface are the guys in the kkk outfit. he didn't step down. governor cuomo doesn't seem like is going anywhere. says of the state legislature chooses to not impede or remove cuomo it will be sending the signal of this behavior but not consequential. the message is clear: sexual harassment is wrong unless you're sufficiently politically powerful because in those circumstances people are willing to avert their eyes and pretend it didn't happen. where do you put the odds on him leaving office either by resignation or impeachment or sticking around? >> i think it's 50/50. i live in virginia, so i remember when governor northam was on the ropes and every democrat in the state was calling for him to resign. today this moment, he is still the governor.
9:18 pm
we don't know what's going to happen to andrew cuomo. there were not calls for impeachment and the rattling of those charges in the virginia state legislature like there are in new york. so we really don't know. i think one of the open questions is, i saw that piece just before the segment, regarding chris cuomo. the open question is will both cuomo brothers have their jobs after this? one of them or neither of them? i remember the cuomo brothers comedy hours on cnn with them yakking it up during the height of the covid epidemic and when the scandals erupted there's this new policy that no one had ever heard of that chris cuomo is not allowed to cover his brother, that was new to most people in america. it says an awful lot about the situation that governor cuomo is in that the onion of all websites had a story today that says he's trying to shift focus back to the nursing home deaths which is another thing that he really should be called on the
9:19 pm
carpet for because that cost thousands of people their lives. and he tried to cover it up. these are two very serious things and i think that he could and should be impeached for either one of them together certainly. >> shannon: new york lawmakers, a lot of pressure on democrats and republicans to get united on this impeachment issue. we'll see if they do. the eviction ban. something from "the washington post" which talks about the president himself basically conceding he doesn't think it's lawful and says conceding the bulk of the constitutional scholar states not likely to pass constitutional muster and then he added but at a minimum by the time it gets litigated it will probably give some additional time to they can get the money out and do what they want to do. in other words, it might not be legal but even if it's not, we'll get some good done in the meantime. what do you make of that? >> the whole thing is incredibly dishonest from the byron white house. white house press secretary jen psaki and a reporter asked
9:20 pm
her about the concerns that this was unconstitutional and she said who is saying that? for one, your boss, the president of the united states was saying that. on the very day he took the action he admitted that a lot of constitutional scholars think that it's unconstitutional. i don't know if joe biden is aware of this, whether or not it has occurred to him. he's taken an action which he himself has said out loud it might very well be unconstitutional. that would be a violation of his oath of office. there is no question about that. and in all of this, what about the landlords? you to your credit had a piece about that. the left wants to set up the landlords as though they are some sort of rich corporations that are just trying to squeeze money out of the poor, downtrodden people who can't their rent. millions of these landlords are actually mom-and-pop operations. if people don't pay their rent, they can't pay their mortgages on those properties. somebody has to look out for that. >> shannon: there are bills to
9:21 pm
be paid. the money is not free. it does not grow on trees. thank you for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> shannon: think twice before leaving her lunch unattended around this guy. what officers found inside a van after a while chase. today's best viral videos are next.

9:37 pm
spearheading the nationwide defund and reimagine police movement. this november minneapolis voters will decide whether they want and make their current police department. there is a one million-dollar campaign asking voters to vote yes. the group yes for minneapolis has gathered roughly $983,000 to replace the police department and the public safety agency. currently the minneapolis city charter requires a certain number of police officers per population. the minneapolis city council cannot legally reduce the number of police officers unless voters approve changing the rule. there is concern that the million-dollar yes for minneapolis fund in favor of ending the police department is largely outside dollars. the dc-based organization gifted nearly half of the total funds, $430,000 to staffing services and the national aclu gives $75,000 in cash and $4,000 in staff time.
9:38 pm
the opposing group, all of minneapolis, which supports policed reform but does not think a charter amendment is necessary has raised us $109,000. a spokesperson for the s for minneapolis group defended the outside money saying in part they always knew there was a handful of people who had benefited from the power and resource holding and they're not going to yield easily. after this holding events to minneapolis to replace the police department say they want something new. >> we deserve better than neglect at best and the abuse at worst. >> safety exists beyond policing. >> other minneapolis neighbor say they cannot get behind abolishing the police movement. >> there's been three or four times we've had shoot-outs right in front of our house. my bedroom window is right there. >> we need policed. we need good police. we need the bad police gone but we need police. >> you may recall minneapolis city council reduced police funding and since then there's been a violent crime spike and an all-time high number of
9:39 pm
officers leaving the forest. shannon. >> shannon: matt finn, real issues. thank you. with waves of violent crime plaguing big and smaller cities across the country, refund the police movements are gaining steam. is that going to be enough to reverse the spikes in violence that we've been seeing? let's ask a retired police officer. we see cities and locality saying we are going to pour money in and hire officers. places are having an exceptionally hard time doing that. people don't want to risk their lives for the salaries. they're worried about legal liabilities, their own lives and frankly morale. is the refund and going to solve the problem? >> it's not, shannon. this is like a massive shift that has been headed in one direction for the last couple years, trying to turn it around. the reality is that the defund the police movement was
9:40 pm
basically movement of revenge against the police by the political left, very well-funded, i might add. here's the reality. you could throw money at this problem and try and put more officers and uniforms out on the street but that's not the totality of what's going on. there have been massive changes in laws and policies put into place by politicians on the left that have really made effective policing almost impossible. you look at the radical -- and when i say radical, i'm not talking about some minor stuff. i am talking about major changes in the way policing could possibly be done in illinois and also in the state of washington. washington has enacted the most radical of any of it, including
9:41 pm
what we have just seen. it literally went into effect just days ago. within a day, a murderer was basically allowed to run free because the police were not allowed to use force to apprehend them. this is truly a crisis situation when you look at what's happening in minneapolis, this is a time when the people have to stand up. if they don't stand up, the blood is going to run in the streets, and this is not something, it's not a scare tactic. this is the reality, and we have seen it in the last year or so. it's not a spike in violent crime. it says tsunami of violent crime. >> shannon: there is issues that some are starting to worry about, the political impact. if that's what it takes for them to step up and say let's try to right the ship and get it right where there is police reform,
9:42 pm
weed out the bad cops. nobody wants bad cops out more than the good cops. we also try to protect our cities and communities. bernie goldberg writing "it's the left wing of the democratic party that wants to defund the police. progressive democrats came up with the idea to reimagine policing." none of this bodes well for democrats next year. voters don't like politicians were soft on crime and hard on cops. will the potential political follow be enough to turn things around? >> i really hope so. this is true democracy. this is a time for the people to speak. the reality is that 77% of americans believe that the police are to be trusted. so you have a very vocal minority who says no, we have to abolish the police or reimagine the police.
9:43 pm
some of the euphemisms that have been put into the vernacular are amazing. i recently heard violence interrupters. it's insanity. here's what really needs to happen. this really truly is not rocket science. we were able to solidify a true criminal justice system in the late '80s and early 'night is when crime was really out of control. we did it by holding people accountable for their crimes. the federal government has immense power. if they actually want to work with local and state police, they can do it. they have immense latitude. it has to be reality-based policing. you won't even here, you won't even hear from the left with the reality is. listen, people are getting killed. cops are getting killed. we had another officer killed
9:44 pm
just today. listen, shannon. ideal with this every day. i listen to and the most heartbreaking stories from police officers who been injured. we have to work together. we have to band together as a country and support our law enforcement. >> shannon: they don't feel that from their local communities and the people who are there to protect them. it's a serious problem. they need to know we have our support. randy, thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. >> shannon: should police officers be able to sue protesters who harass and assault them? we are going to tell you where lawmakers are helping to make that the law and asked, is it legal? our legal eagles weigh in on that next. (other money manager) how do your clients know that? (naj) because as a fiduciary, it's our responsibility to always put clients first. (other money manager) so you do it because you have to? (naj) no, we do it because it's the right thing to do.

we help clients enjoy a comfortable retirement. (other money manager) sounds like a big responsibility. (naj) one that we don't take lightly. it's why our fees are structured so we do better when our clients do better. fisher investments is clearly different.

>> shannon: one county in new york approving the controversial measure that allows first responders including police officers to sue protesters who harass them or cause them bodily harm because of their profession. the bill approved by the republican-led nassau county legislature argues recent attacks on law enforcement undermine the civil liberties of the community at large but opponents say it shows -- a chosen profession shouldn't be treated like other protective classes. the bill is awaiting the signature of county executives.

civil rights attorney robert patillo, bob bianchi. is it legal? great to happy with us. we remember the images of police officers standing on a line in protests, people yelling their face. some being pelted with water bottles. that's what this is about. the proposed law says the legislature respects and reveres the right of all americans to peacefully assemble. it's the intent of this legislature to promote such rights by helping to ensure secure and stable environment in which those rights may be peaceably exercised. bob, free speech advocates are worried it will quell free speech. >> listen, i don't necessarily disagree with their concern. i can tell you from my experience, chief law enforcement officer that was involved in protests as well as an emt in my former life that's

been involved in these situations, the first responders are in harm's way. what they are basically saying with this bill, whether you agree or disagree is that there are criminal penalties for harassing. it's no different. what's different is you can suit anyway under the parent laws. some would say why do you need to do this other than including hefty fines that are so, up to $50,000. free speech advocates have a point. but sort of the police and first responders who we need to protect in these situations. it's out of control. >> shannon: we saw some of that last year and into this year. "the washington post" writing "the proponents of the bill say, they argued that the bill offers additional protection to officers in the face of destructive riots and lawlessness targeting law enforcement officials following george floyd's death in police custody last summer."

robert. >> you also have to look at what happened on january 6th i make sure that these things are applied evenly across the board. what we do want to do is set up a situation where law enforcement is allowed to pick and choose which group they are able to sue. when it gets to physical violence, water bottles, someone beaten with the american flag or shot with bear mace during the capital insurrections. there should be civil penalties. talking about criminalizing language, that does go too far into violating the first amendment and freedom of speech and freedom of protest. >> shannon: i want to ask you the same question. bob. what do you think letitia james' office may say about this? what do you think her guidance might be? >> it's hard to say. they are elected officials. i was appointed. there are elected officials. a law enforcement person want to

support the police. i disagree respectfully with my calling. this is not about speech directed at police officers. it's not that you're offended. it's about whether or not you're being harassed and attacked which is a much different situation. she probably would support this but then again she's got that be elected. constituents may be upset. >> shannon: robert, final word. >> going to have questions about the necessity of this when they're already criminal penalties for attacking police officers. i think more meat needs to be put on the bonus what they are trying to accomplish. >> shannon: she's been very busy. someone in her office will no doubt look at this. we will track this and see if other counties and localities and states consider similar issues. robert and bob, thank you. some good news before we say good night. look at the sweet reunion between a air force
