  • 1413 - Trump: Redfield was "confused" and "made a mistake" on vaccine distribution timeline

    CDC Director Robert Redfield told a Senate Committee he thinks a Covid-19 vaccine won’t be available to the American public until the late second quarter or third quarter of 2021. When asked about Redfield’s comments, President Trump said he was “confused” and “made a mistake” and then went on to claim a vaccine could be ready by October. The CDC later said Redfield misunderstood the questions during the hearing and his 2021 vaccine comment was when all Americans would be vaccinated. Dr. Eric Topol, Executive Vice President at Scripps Research, tells Anderson Cooper he believes Dr. Redfield was telling the truth and “it’s like a circus act in the midst of an important pandemic.” Plus, Michael Caputo, the top spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, who claimed, without evidence, the CDC has a “resistance unit” to work against the President, announced he’s taking a two-month "medical leave of absence” following his apology for the conspiracy-laden rant. Anthony Scaramucci, former White House Communications Director joins AC360 to react to Caputo’s comments and says when it’s corrupt at the top, it spills over into everybody.   Airdate: September 16, 2020   Guests: Dr. Eric Topol Anthony Scaramucci See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.

  • 1411 - Trump: “This thing is a killer if it gets you”

    When speaking to Bob Woodward back in April when nearly 30,000 Americans had already died from Covid-19, President Trump admitted that the virus “is a killer if it gets you. If you’re the wrong person, you don’t have a chance.” Meanwhile, he was telling the public the country needs to reopen and the return of live sports. Carl Bernstein, journalist, author and CNN Political Analyst, joins AC360 to react to the President’s comments and says “we’re witnessing a homicidal president.” Plus, a top spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services claimed, without evidence, the Center for Disease Control has a “resistance unit” to work against Trump. Michael Caputo, a defender of the President, made these claims after sources told CNN he and his team demanded to see weekly CDC documents before they were released. Dr. Tom Frieden, former Director at the CDC, tells Anderson Cooper the virus responds to “science-driven action” and what we’re seeing is “an attempt to meddle with science.”   Airdate: September 14, 2020   Guests:  Carl Bernstein Dr. Tom Frieden See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.

  • 1410 - New Covid-19 projection: 415,000 deaths by January 1

    New Covid-19 projection: 415,000 deaths by January 1 As the U.S. Covid-19 death toll nears 200,000, an influential model projects nearly 415,000 deaths by January 1. That number decreases to around 298,000 if there is 95% universal mask wearing. Right now mask use is slipping below 45%. Dr. Chris Murray is the director of the group at the University of Washington that’s been working on these models throughout the pandemic. He joins AC360 to explain how important mask wearing is and predicts the U.S. will see a “deadly December.” Plus, in August after NBA players boycotted their playoff games following the shooting of Jacob Blake, the Black man who was shot seven times in the back by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Kenny Smith, former NBA champion and Analyst for Inside the NBA on TNT, walked off the set saying “as a black man, as a former player, I think it's best for me to support the players and just not be here tonight.” He tells Anderson Cooper sometimes you need to talk about the march but other times you need to join the march and he said he thought it was a “join the march moment.” Airdate: September 11, 2020 Guests: Dr. Chris Murray Kenny Smith See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.
