tv   The 11th Hour With Brian Williams  MSNBC  October 26, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PDT

11:00 pm
that is tonight's last word, the 11th hour with brian williams starts now. some some wall, good evening, once again 280 of the biden ministration. and there is breaking news indeed tonight, on the january 6th investigation. washington post reporting the house select committee expected to subpoena one john eastman, he is the pro trump lawyer who outlined scenarios for overturning the election results, in trump's favor. the post reports quote, it will happen chair bennie thompson said in an interview tuesday of a subpoena for eastman. who played a key role in a legal operation that was run out of a command center at the willard hotel, in washington, in the days and hours leading up to the january six. house investigators are also focusing on getting more witnesses to cooperate, earlier
11:01 pm
today the committee chairman said some of those witnesses have been coming in without being asked, without being subpoenaed even. earlier this evening, one committee member was a bit more forthcoming about their focus. we >> have had dozens of interviews with individuals -- every day, we are reaching out, we are pulling these threads to find out what transpired. and those interviews and those discussions are leading to more discussions. within the past department of homeland security, we want to know about the intelligence issues, we want to know what intelligence was out there in terms of what was said over to capitol police and what was not. and we want to know their role between the election day and january 5th and january six. now they play a key role and so we've asked them questions and we are gonna ask questions of the national alker archives as well, for dhs material. >> the committee and a good many other people are also watching the justice department.
11:02 pm
and attorney general merrick garland, as they weigh in whether or not to prosecute steve bannon for defying the committee subpoena we >> they've got a run their traps on all of the guidelines for deciding on a crime of no prosecution, in a case like that. we think it's an open and shut case. we have other sanctions available to us that we would use, either in his case or in other people who decide that they're too good for the justice process of the united states. and too good for the congressional subpoena. >> the federal criminal investigation into the capitol riot has been focused on the lawless brutality of the assault on police officers. today, prosecutors released new video of yet another view of what law enforcement was up against as they battled with pro trump rioters. in other political news, this evening, who are now just one week out from election day, the race for governor and virginia
11:03 pm
has become something of a bellwether for democrats and republicans looking ahead at the midterms in 2022. admittedly, largely because the news media has decided it's a bellwether. tonight, the president was back in virginia to campaign for terry mcauliffe. he's in a tight race with his republican opponent glenn youngkin, who had which has raised alarms among democrats as you might imagine. during the rally, biden made a point of putting the focus on former president trump. >> we terry's running against an acolyte of donald trump. to win the republican domination here -- terry's opponent has made all of his private places loyalty to donald trump and what's really interesting to me, he won't stand next to donald trump now that the campaigns on. think about it. we he won't allow donald trump to campaign for him in this day. we >> youngkin held his own rally tonight.
11:04 pm
he's been endorsed by trump not why it's, but several times. this election is also being seen as a test of biden's domestic priorities and all of them are being held up by democrats. today, the president continued negotiating with members of his own party in an effort to try to make those priorities the law of the land. biden met with groups of liberal and house democrats, moderates as well, to resolve their differences over health care coverage, green energy, paid leave, pans plans to overly out the tax code and alike. the program could talk true trillion but it's much smaller than the president and his party had first in vision or wanted for that matter. democrats are also trying to hash out ways to play for it all, from attacks on billionaires to a 15% corporate minimum tax rate on corporations. and while it's kind of a given will go and wait ahead and say it anyway, that he also met with manchin and sinema, knee so far neither seems ready to
11:05 pm
sign off on the revised spending plan. meanwhile, their majority leader says progress is being made we >> i know that democrats in both chambers are working really hard to get this consequential, desperately needed legislation across the finish line. i believe a final deal is within reach. >> also, tonight, we might be on the brake of seeing covid vaccines authorized for millions of younger children. tonight, advisers to the fda have indeed recommended pfizer's vaccine for children 5 to 11 years of age. agency is all but certain and to grant emergency authorization for the vaccine perhaps as soon as this week, the cdc will then meet early next week to announce host of this network's 5 am show, appropriately named, way
11:06 pm
too early, just this week. he also just joined politico as white house bureau chief. robert costa, national political reporter with the washington post, his latest book coauthored with bob woodward, peril, is now in its fourth week on the new york times bestseller list. and lisa lahren, national political correspondent for the new york times, good evening, and welcome to your all. mr. costa, because it's your papers report reporting tonight that we lead with, and because it's your book which basically told the story of the command center across the street from the white house, more or less. at the willard hotel. i'd like to begin with you. let's talk about this potential eastman subpoena, what more can you tell us about it and him? >> this is an important crossroads for the january six committee. to try to figure out what's where the discussions like beyond what has already been reported on the night of january 5th, the day of january six, about not just having a
11:07 pm
president trump we block biden certification, but maybe even move the election into the house of representatives. bob woodward and i and our book, reveal the eastman memo, this two -- to have pence put into motion something that would've likely caused a devastating constitutional crisis. the committee is now turning not just to the police officers on the scene, and others who were part of the riot of the insurrection, but also to those on the legal and political side. >> lisa, you covered the mcauliffe rally tonight, i'm told. democrats are worried, mcauliffe looks exhausted, he has met a few unforced errors thus far, in the campaign. so, is planning, the republican candidate to donald trump will, no other way to ask this, the best they've got at this point? >> it's really the only play they have. i mean, what was really
11:08 pm
striking about tonight's rally was that president biden spent the bulk of his time not talking about his own legislative agenda, a congressional package that really encompasses the bulk of his domestic priorities, but the guy he ran against last year, donald trump. and that was really the focus of his remarks, trying to tie glenn youngkin to donald trump. i mean, look, don democrats know that donald trump is the best motivator their party had. it drove voters to the polls in record numbers, breaking records in virginia for every year for the last four years. and they're hoping they can sort of repeat that, provide this boost of enthusiasm for their base, that they really need in this kind of off year election. but of course donald trump is not on the ballot and this will really be a test of how resonate he remains in voters minds. now that he is off in mar-a-lago. >> cuts both ways, indeed. jonathan lin here, as i welcome you to the dark side i want to ask you what does this possible
11:09 pm
subpoena of a guy like eastman mean about the intent and speed of this one six committee >> well, thank you brian, i appreciate all of that. it shows that the january six committee is not just going to be contend with headlines out of the referral for criminal prosecution of steve bannon. that of course has been a central focus as of this point, that he's refusing to testify. and now could face criminal charges, and even if convicted could face here in prison. he has told people close to him that we he'd welcomed that. that he would be embracing the idea of being a martyr, if you will. as far as eastman goes, it goes to show that the breath of this investigation is continuing to grow. that it won't just be the -- eastman is someone who is a lot of americans had heard of until bob costa and his colleagues -- and there are terrific new book and it goes to show that they are there, taking seriousness of this plot. to try to stop the
11:10 pm
certification of joe biden's victory. and it's about what's happened january 6th and the events that led up to it and bring those responsible to justice perhaps. or at least hold them accountable. but it's also about trying to stop what could happen again in 2022, and 2024. you >> mr. costa, i'd like to play something for you we heard earlier today from veteran, neil caught y'all. now a lawyer in private practice, but knows his way around doj. he talked about the possibility of a doj investigation into the former president. >> we all merrick arland is just about the cautious principled person in this town. so, it's possible that he has an investigation that hasn't gone public. but at some point patience runs thin, and the investigation has to take shape. we >> indeed, general garland is a patient man, too patient for the likes of so many democrats seized's, who want
11:11 pm
action and consequences now. but robert, talk about the kinds of pressure the a.g. is under right now. with >> the a.g. is under enormous pressure from democrats and some republicans and who are critics of trump. because they're looking at with the department of justice is doing, hundreds of people rested for participating in the insurrection. and we have seen the doj be very aggressive, we've seen the arrests in different kind of footage. the question now faces garland is this, beyond those who were participating in the violence, what about those who were inside the room? and is there a crime of conspiracy to defraud the united states? it's a crime to try to defraud the united states, to commit fraud, to deceive the country itself, to deceive the leadership of the government, the congress. and is garlic want to go down that path. i don't have reporting on that front, but you can see at this
11:12 pm
point the justice department in a decision-making position, and a lot of unanswered questions about just how far they want to go. but as a reporter, i would just step back and say, i spent nine or ten months with woodward looking into this, this was an insurrection that was across so many different fronts. president pressuring the vice president, the doj state officials, the courts, the congress. i'm not here to define it as a conspiracy but i will tell you it was a coordinated pressure campaign. we -- directed from the person at the top, trump. >> well, thank you for that answer. lisa, we're looking at the talks between the liberals and the moderates, among the democrats and we keep saying night after night there's no one else to blame for the blockage of the presidents agenda, other than his own party. we know what to expect from the republicans. a casual observer sees programs in the news every day, being
11:13 pm
tossed over the side. and every day that happens, that someone's program from the first lady to the major members of the senate and house. do you think this will flip up the message, do you think by the time they get done they will have tossed out too much balanced against was the presidents initial views were? >> walls, certainly, some progressives feel that way. we saw bernie sanders get show a little bit more than annoyance to day when they were talking about throwing out a program that he's advocated for. which was expanding dental coverage and for medicare recipients. he started this negotiation saying seven trillion, that was really a fictitious number, he was never gonna get that. but he saw 3.5 trillion, which was the initial size of the package as a compromise. and the question will be how the american public perceives it. the i think the administration
11:14 pm
has set this up, they really fostered this parallel that encourages with -- that president biden was like fdr, he was gonna pass the sweeping domestic program. so even the number all stroking around now, 1.7 five, it is a really big number, that is a really big package. it may not feel that way now that these province have been pared down from pretty expansive campaign promises. but we'll have to see. right now, they have no package. and that's something that the mccaul of people and democrats in virginia and elsewhere is really hurting them. and as you point out in the interest -- where it's a bellwether of what could come in the midterms. >> yeah, to mimic a phrase from washington about half a century ago, billion here, billy on their, pretty soon you're talking about real money. jonathan lin here, a quote from your new employer, your new publication and that's political. quote, some democrats involved in conversations with the white house were less optimistic
11:15 pm
openly fretting that talks risk losing momentum. and stalling out if they aren't done by the time biden gets on that plane. they mean this week to europe. there are in hand-to-hand combat. the animals all gone they've switched to bayonet's, they're just trying to get it done. said john podesta, founder of the progressive thing town center for american progress. it's gotta be a lot if it made podesta go military there. jonathan lin here, what reporting have you that they are any closer than they were yesterday or last friday night? >> yeah, bayonet sterling a strong image, brian. there is some concern because there's a trio of deadlines. but at -- at the end of the month. number two, the number the race we've been talking about, the virginia governor race -- taking this a usual stephen begging the white house and congressional -- at least pass the infrastructure part of it if not the reconciliation bill.
11:16 pm
to give him something to run off. which shows the alarm he's experiencing about his candidacy. and then of course he has to present on thursday, had to europe, rome first audience with the pope, and then the g20 summit. jinping will take will be there. the president does have we meeting with president macron, which could be a little awkward. and then of course the climate summit in scotland. and he's really hoping to go there and we'll americas world leadership, that will be hard to do with the climate revisions are all stripped out of the reconciliation or thirst a bill at all. so yes, there was optimism last week that they were close. and i think my -- reporting suggesting that there's incremental progress in the last few days. but still a long way to go of how he's going to get -- the fate of family leave, how long that will be there. this is not a done deal. sinema and manchin privately signaled they think they can get their, maybe even this week. some of the progressive we've been accommodating at this point, saying not so fast. we don't want to give away the store.
11:17 pm
president biden he wants this done before he leaves thursday morning, he's got work to do. >> our starting line, on a tuesday night. robert costa, lisa lerer, and our new works coworker bilingual jonathan lynn here, our thanks again for starting us off tonight. coming up for us, some surprising words from joe manchin as the democrats gets closer to a deal we are told, on capitol hill. we'll get a read from our political experts. and later, why a california doctor known to be cautious about covid things we've reached a point where this may just be our life now. we'll have him explain, all of it as the 11th hour is just now at getting underway. on this tuesday night beneath the rotors of marine war. wetors of marine war wetors of marine war we regina approaches the all-electric cadillac lyriq. it's a sunny day. nah, a stormy day. classical music plays. um uh, brass band, new orleans. ♪ ♪

11:19 pm
ever wonder how san francisco became the greenest big city in america? just ask the employee owners of recology. we built the recycling system from the ground up, helping san francisco become the first city in the country
11:20 pm
to have a universal recycling and composting program for residents and businesses. but it all starts with you. let's keep making a differene together. >> i know that democrats and
11:21 pm
both chambers are working really hard to get this consequential, desperately needed legislation across the finish line. no one ever told us, no one ever said that passing transformational legislation like this would be easy, but we are are on track to get it done, because it's so important. >> president leaves for europe on thursday, with his economic agenda still very much up in the air. he would like to sign a bill, at this point any bill, prior to his departure. and so to that and he had his usual houseguest over tonight. sinema and manchin in the oval office, or what as they call it
11:22 pm
tuesday. here to talk about, it juanita tolliver, -- two progressive candidates and stuart stevens, veteran of mitt romney and -- who is these days with the lincoln project. his latest book and it's an important one's, it was all a lie. how the republican party became donald trump. well, good evening, and welcome to your both. juanita, we're gonna have sore feelings on both sides. it is whatever the president going to sign still a victory? we >> absolutely. right? i don't think it can be underscored enough that once democrats are pulling this load all by themselves to make investments that are critical for the american public, but to, these investments are still historic. i think in conversations with folks like representative pressley about all of the things that are still included here, now negotiations aren't done and rest presented of jayapal said it's not all done unless it's all agreed to by
11:23 pm
everyone. then, we will have a final picture. but, short of that final picture while we still have is still going to have a large impact on peoples lives and that's what's gonna matter a year from now in the midterms. it's the impact that people are going to be loose deliver. like the build back better act. >> stuart, i brought something for you these are the comments of joe manchin during q&a in front of the economic club of washington tonight we'll discuss on the other side. and so, have you ever thought my life would be easier for you, if you shifted to being a republican? and somebody had said recently, that people have approached you about doing. >> every day. no, i've never thought, when i'm telling you now is who i am. you think by having a deer and iron are is going to change or i am? i don't think the ours would be any more happier with me than that these are right now.
11:24 pm
okay. that's about as blunt as i can put it. i don't know where in the heck i belong. >> stuart, a snarky person would say, there's no reason are gonna change parties that he can stop a presidential agenda is one guy in the agenda, let's get beyond that that kind of hail fellow well met manchin exterior, hides a lot of long knives that are up for him in washington right now, and sooner or later. he is going to have to come around and agree to something. >> i think so. look, we have to relive in the real world. west virginia, donald trump's best states. if he didn't have joe manchin, here you would probably have some whack job republican. who had been nothing but a trumper. i think democrats have to look for joe manchin, and think look
11:25 pm
this could be worse. it's not someone that is locked out of the party, that's not necessarily a bad thing. you want someone to represent west virginia. the important thing here is the democrats control government right now. they still do in the perception is they. do it's not again something passed. here it's very popular stuff, that they are fighting for here. the anti-dental care and anti-health benefits lobby is pretty small. people like pre-k care. they want more child tax credits. we need to get into definitively what's this about. get done and move on. >> to that end juanita, how much harder is it with each passing day? you went through the steps. you went through the sticking points. you quoted congresswoman jayapal, all but it's about to be wednesday. >> it's about to be wednesday, but let's be real.
11:26 pm
they have a lot more work to do. it's in their grasp brian. it's the closest they have been to a deal. and even though they find themselves in a similar situation like they are in september, where they have progressive say we're not voting on the bill until the build back better act is ready to run alongside it. differences that language is in a much better place than it was before. granted there are still big holes to fill, progress has been made, i do think progressives are right. to hold out on a vote tomorrow, and have another showdown with speaker pelosi. as they've been saying this whole time, we are not going to leave anyone behind. that is the ethos and behind this investments anyway. and that's something all democrats should be supportive. of as they go into negotiating these last pieces, whether it's the billionaire tax, or paid leave. whether it's medicare expansions, put the people first. because that is who is going to, you one be holding you
11:27 pm
accountable, or rewarding him with reelection. i have to say, as manchin finds himself sustaining the limelight in this moment, i'm not sure the gop would have, him after voting twice to convict trump, as well as against his singular legislative points of the tax bill. as well as investigating january six. the gop, likely would not have manchin, even if he tries to get over there at this point. he should love the one he's, with negotiating in good faith with democrats, and get this deal done. >> look who is defending joe manchin. i'm checking the time right now. stuart i'm coming to you after this, break both of our guests have agreed to stay with. us i will continue our conversation, to. it's coming up the issues in the final days of the campaign, some in the news media have called the unofficial start of the midterm elections. start of the midterm elections. the midterm elections. with jardiance? we're 25 million prescriptions strong. we're managing type 2 diabetes... ...and heart risk. we're working up a sweat before coffee.
11:28 pm
and saying, “no thanks...” a boston cream. jardiance is a once-daily pill that can reduce the risk of cardiovascular death for adults who also have known heart disease. so, it could help save your life from a heart attack or stroke. and jardiance lowers a1c. jardiance can cause serious side effects including... ...dehydration, genital yeast or urinary tract infections, and sudden kidney problems. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. a rare, but life-threatening bacterial infection in the skin of the perineum could occur. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away... ...if you have symptoms of this bacterial infection, ...ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction, ...and don't take it if you're on dialysis. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. lower a1c and lower risk of a fatal heart attack? we're on it. we're on it. with jardiance. ask your doctor about jardiance.
11:29 pm
the sleep number 360 smart bed is on sale now. it's the most comfortable, dually-adjustable, foot-warming, temperature-balancing, proven quality night sleep we've ever made.
11:30 pm
and now, save up to $1,000 on select sleep number 360 smart beds and adjustable bases. he started his campaign by only for a limited time.
11:31 pm
saying that the number one issue in the race was his called the election, integrity. now this guy starts and coffee election integrity, now why did he do that? because he wanted to hear donald trump there was a price you have to pay for the nomination. and he paid it. but now he doesn't want to talk about trump anymore, well i do.
11:32 pm
>> talk about an oxymoron donald trump an election integrity. >> president biden tonight in virginia trying to tie the republican candidate in the race to trump, and trying to help us ran terry mcauliffe when the election there. politico puts the states like this, a win for youngkin biden's aides and allies they may not scuttle his domestic agenda. but it would be the first domino to fall, foreshadowing potential problems with the party minded midterm quest to paint republicans as extreme to govern. still with us, juanita tolliver and stewart stevens. steven, i brought a little something along for you and here is the latest production of the lincoln project. >> oh donald, it's happening again, you need glenn youngkin. president trump endorsed me the next day.
11:33 pm
and i think him for, that's why glenn jenkins has banned you from coming to virginia. he thinks are a loser and a wicked one too. you're not welcome. not invited, fire away, leaders are. >> stuart all admit the trump just this minute jog me off. if i didn't know better, i would think that spot is aimed at just one view where may be part of a time ad buy, and say florida television market. yeah you know i mean glenn youngkin he ran as the president said, as a trump guy. now he doesn't want donald trump to campaign with him. you don't see terry mcauliffe running away from president biden, or the democrats. the reality is is a onetime governor to virginia glenn youngkin is an ambition sky, if
11:34 pm
he wins this race he's immediately gonna start running for his next office. to do that in the republican party have to do crazy stance, he's not a crazy guy but he's doing crazy stuff. he has a daughter here that he would put a county on. it's really where the party is now. donald trump is on the ballot, this tuesday just as he was on the ballot november 3rd -- . republicans have this need to please trump, that they can't get away from. that's really the reality, terry mcauliffe being a good solid governor. glenn youngkin is going to be an ambitious republican that is going to do waco do stuff, like you see right now. trying to make people afraid >> you see this as the play remaining for the democrats in this race, just go ahead and pound trump over the finish line? >> yeah i would put trump on
11:35 pm
the ballot because i feel like that's with the races about. trump lost by two points on november 3rd when he joined he didn't vote for trump last time why would you vote for him on november 2nd 2021. >> juanita i got something for you, it's hour -- earlier on this network. >> culture wars have been working for the republican party. they no longer talk about economics, or deficits, or trade policy, or foreign policy, it is all about phony culture wars. i do think we should look and see what the republicans have done with culture wars and take that part of that fight that most americans agree with us whether it's guns or whether it's reproductive freedom, or whether it's access to vote. those are all important issues in culture wars, and we should make them much more front and center than we have.
11:36 pm
>> so juanita, and keeping with my theory that democrats culturally are all former student council presidents, they are terrible at this. they have failed miserably at this. do you think with the right coach they could learn to run on something like this? like they are being run against? >> yes. i don't want the democratic party to ever dom itself down to the point of only speaking through language that would resonate with let's be real, the deepest darkest were sparked the people which is what the gop does. so while still talking about issues that matter, still talking about substance that matters, sure there's still a space to tap into the very real impact, and very real fears that people see. i think you saw that in 2018 actually, and again in 2020. biden said 2020 was the return to normal, in 2018 it was about women taking back all the seats
11:37 pm
that we saw republicans take and emphasizing the power of women, as well as all the ways that trump's horrible and wrong, and toxic. i still think trump is toxic for the virginia governor tutorial race, and that is why biden was explicitly right in lifting the veil on who youngkin's, and tying him to trump. i think that the president said aptly when he said extremism comes in many forms including a smile and a sweater vest. that is who youngkin is. he's trying to say hammers the bourbon that, when we know he's anti abortion, anti marriage equality, and why so many things that are fundamental to basic existence in the commonwealth of virginia. the state house under democratic control has been able to implement. so i appreciate mcauliffe campaign, passing out copies of beloved to the press tonight, i appreciate them already hitting that baton back against youngkin and to continue to be
11:38 pm
that. that is what democrats should do to get him over the finish line, show who youngkin is, remind him of every lie of trump that he spread, remind that trump has endorsed him six time and run those clips back from the primaries. we have >> hard to believe we are back to banning, next will be -- . our thanks to these two friends of our broadcast, juanita tolliver, and stewart stevens, great thanks for joining us. another break for us, and coming up what if our current pandemic situation is as good as it's ever going to get. we will speak with a leading academic physician who says it may be time to resume living in what he calls, the new normal. normal.

optimism out there. our daily death toll around 15 1600 souls, health experts are beginning to prepare for what comes next. our next guest is quoted in the senate for go chronicle under the eye catching headline, this is it is the consensus among covid experts. the article include their recent post from one of those experts doctor bober doctor who wrote quote, for the past 18 months my personal covid choices very cautious, which oven by prospects of lowered risk in the future mostly via vaccines. my current view is that we're nearing a new normal, at least for the next few years. it drives me to choices on travel, dining, etc that feel right, long term. for more we welcome to our broadcast the mentioned bob wachter professor and chair of the department of medicine at ucsf, university of california san francisco, one of the bay area's leading experts on the
11:43 pm
cyrus. doctor thank you so very much for coming on. explain to our viewers the difference between pandemic, and endemic and explain your position here that this may be our life now, and how we got there? >> thanks, brian, i hope not i hope it gets better. we need to continue vaccinating more people and being careful. my fear is we may be reaching a point where there are enough unvaccinated people, and delta is infectious enough, that we've kind of reached an equilibrium. it's not a great equilibrium, we would want this virus to go away and bring us back to light life was like two years ago, but the problem is 40% of the country is still unvaccinated. delta is incredibly infectious. we may be reaching a point where swings back and forth, where certain places like san francisco 80% are vaccinated
11:44 pm
that's good, but not high enough to make the virus go away. other parts of the country where you only have 30 or 40% vaccinated, a lot of people are infected they have a level of immunity but it will wane overtime. we are talking about giving people boosters, vaccinated in the first place. i liken it to painting the golden gate bridge, you reach a point where you thought your finished are good, but then you have to start all over again. we may be out a point where it gets 20 to 30% better, it gets 20 to 30% worse, but unlikely to get 90% better than it is now. we have to make choices that reflect that this may be what life looks like prison ex few years. >> of course there is no good news contained and what you just said for the people with comorbidities, pre-existing conditions, they will remain scared and wary and at risk. i guess that will be their law and life if we go forward as we
11:45 pm
are now. >> well i would see a little bit of good news, if they are fully vaccinated and if they are illegible and get their boosters, they are incredibly well protected against getting super stick undying. that is different than what it was a year ago, a year and a half ago, so i think that news is good. for the unvaccinated people, i think they're very likely to get infected as someone hopefully they will do okay, but there's a chance they won't. as you know there are new checks coming down the pipeline which may lower the chance of getting super sick if you do get covid. so things may get incrementally better, but i don't know any covid experts that believe covid will go away, completely get out of our lives. we will be in this meta stable condition for a while, to me the choices i was making six months ago were careful, and still verily careful. that was before delta, and that was before i realized that perhaps a third, 40% of the
11:46 pm
united states will not take a vaccine. so we will not get to a point where we reach that heard immunity that we counted on. we have to be ready for a future where there is still covid in our lives. >> so is that stasis you're talking about, would it be the same as life during a dangerous virulent flu season. a word i hate to invoke because we lost so much time in so many lives with a president who was bound, and determined to compare covid to the flu. but in terms of being germ aware, getting a yearly shot, could it be a flu-like member of working society. >> yeah, i think the best projections we have out there is that it might get to be like a really bad flu year. 56, 60, 80,000 people dying in the united states a year. we are talking pretty terrible. now that we have experienced the pandemic, i think it's
11:47 pm
likely for older people who are being careful, they will be fully vaccinated and they will choose to wear masks for example if you see an uptick in covid cases. i think people will follow covid reports like they follow weather reports, okay things are getting worse in my community, it's time to be more careful again. i think we are going to be in a world where there still is covid, people are going to need boosters but for people who are fully vaccinated, and if they're eligible and take boosters they will be quite safe against getting very sick and dying. i worry a lot about people who are unvaccinated, most of them will end up getting covid, most of them will survive and okay, but they may have the illusion that their immune. they have partial manatee, but it's looking like their immunity was waning after year. they really need to get vaccinated, if they don't it will continue to be vulnerable. >> thank you for that, just as an egg uk did prognostication,

all the while assuring us it's not about them. except that today, when she took her turn, presiding over the u.s. senate, it was about her, and her choice of clothing. that would, be a black t-shirt and a denim vest. in the reaction was, immediate. ron phillip housekeep posted saying, quote, at this point, she is just telling us, she doesn't give a blank anymore. jazz a bill described the embroidered denim vest is looking like it could be worn by, and early american idol contestant, a tailgater, a bar back at a really jaunty dive bar, or a clothing hanger that never gets touched, l train vintage. others weighed in, denim vest? new low for the u.s. senate. for what it's worth, i don't think any man would get away with that. nothing against a denim vest, but presiding over the u.s. senate in one, is embarrassing. just like everything senator sinema does. and how about these, she should
