tv   The Beat With Ari Melber  MSNBC  July 10, 2020 3:00pm-4:00pm PDT

3:00 pm
that's all we have for tonight. we'll be back with more "meet the press daily." if it's sundays, it's "meet the press" on nbc. the beat starts now. good evening. >> good evening. good to see you. good to be watching you this summed as well. it looks like you have a lot to talk about. welcome to "the beat." i'm in for ari melber this evening. we begin with the country yet again hitting a single day record for new coronavirus cases, nearly 60,000 more americans diagnosed yesterday as the rift now deepens between donald trump and his own top scientists. "the new york times" laying out
3:01 pm
the surge with a stark new graf detailing the motion is in daily cases since states began to reopen. huge spikes in the west and south. florida leading the way. up nearly 1,400%. that's where trump is today. florida, campaigning. this surge during amid new reports of trump raging about the cdc and a top trump adviser accusing the cdc of undermining the president. at the same time, the rift broadening between trump and his top infectious disease expert, dr. anthony fauci. fauci revealing he last saw trump in person at the white house at the beginning of last month and has not even briefed the president for at lowest two months, believe it or not. that's the same period in which we've seen a new surge in cases as states move to reopen. in a new interview, fauci fact checking trump that 99% of cases were harmless.
3:02 pm
fauci saying, that's not the case. meantime trump attacking faux. >> dr. fauci is a nice man but he's made a lot of mistakes. they've been wrong about a lot of things including face masks. maybe they're wrong, maybe not. a lot of them said don't wear a mask, don't wear a mask. now they're saying wear a mask. a lot of mistakes were made. >> so donald trump saying there that fauci has made a lot of mistakes. it is his most direct attack on faux's record. and it also follows fauci repeatedly fact checking trump over the past several months. >> it will be done. it will be eradicated. >> we will have a return of the virus. >> slow the testing down, please! >> significantly ramp up the number of tests. >> this is something that we can develop fairly rapidly, a vaccine. >> about a year to a year and a half, to be fully confident that we would have a vaccine. >> mortality rate, the lowest anywhere in the world. >> it's a false narrative to
3:03 pm
take comfort in a lower rate of death. >> open the schools. >> we have to see on a step by step base business reopening the schools. >> you know, this virus is going to disappear. >> we will have coronavirus in the fall. i am convinced of that. >> so tonight the pandemic surging to new heights and the distance between trump and his top infectious disease adviser, you saw there playing out. it is growing. with me now, dr. natalie azar, and nbc news contributor, columnist michelle goldberg who is writing about trump's threat to turn it into a culture war. and presidential historian michael beschloss. the numbers are climbing. it doesn't seem from what we're seeing on the ground that any
3:04 pm
state has gotten a handle on this situation. your take. >> yeah. i think what we need to do is look at what is happening in the northeast as potentially an example of how to do things the right way. and i home it stays that way. but following all the criteria, opening phase one and evolving into subsequent phases after meeting certain criteria. the states and the counties in those states that are seeing spikes need to very carefully go back and watch the following metrics. did they open too soon? did they open incorrectly would you the proper precautions in place, and did the folks who live in those areas practice the mitigation measures that we have talked ad nauseam about, including mask wearing, which has become a proxy for the political divide in this country. >> so let's take your questions, if the numbers are telling as you story, it is that they didn't do those things.
3:05 pm
that people did not necessarily practice the mitigation that we tried to do, certainly here in the northeast. the question is about now. is tight late in your medical and perrise to try to get this situation? >> according to the public health experts, it is too late to keep going way it is now. unfortunately, i think a lot of those areas will have to go back to lacked. i think that's what most people who have weighed in on this have opined and said, look, the genie is out of the proverbial bottle. you can't just now start mask wearing and social distancing and i don't think those people would even be doing that. it is really unfortunate. the governors in those states who led the reopenings just ended up shooting themselves in their own feet. >> it seems that even the texas governor is considering, another lockdown. michelle, let me get your thoughts on the growing feud between president trump, dr. fauci. the president is going after dr.
3:06 pm
fauci. he is putting some of the blame on dr. fauci. dr. fauci seems to be more preoccupied with making sure the american public sticks to the facts. not what the president is necessarily saying. >> i think it was only a matter of time before donald trump turned on fauci. he turns on everyone who doesn't prop up his imaginary self-contained version of reality. what is really frightening is the extent to which he is not allowing fauci and other people in the federal government charged with protecting public health to do their jobs, right? he's littling fall of's media appearances, he himself does not want to hear from fauci. think back to that time when donald trump got the trajectory of the hurricane wrong. he went back and he drew with a sharpie. back then it was on the one hand, ominous, right? like reminiscent in the most as far assical way, what dictators
3:07 pm
do all over the world. this is trump behaving like an authoritarian dictator that has real world consequences. this complete and total inability to act on any sort of material reality that contradicts his own political interests, and his own political ideology. and his demand that the government, rather than responding to the faktss on the ground, rather than responding to the suffering in the country, either prop up his crumbling fantasy or get shunt to the side. >> to that point about the contrast we're seeing emerge among the scientists that he's surrounding himself with, you climbed of see a pattern of behavior where somebody like dr. redfield seems to be more digestible to president because he's kind of amending, if you will, the cdc talking points to kind of go i know what what the president wants him to say. dr. fauci, sticking to his guns,
3:08 pm
he's not following the talking points of the president. >> fauci has had a long and storied career and is one of the few people in donald trump's orbit who is not going to imlate their reputation in order to stay in office. what you saw with dr. redfield was frightening. and it's not because i think the cdc guidelines on reopening schools can't be challenged or contradicted. if you're going to revise them, it should not be because the president was ranting about it. it should be because experts or scientists convinced you that there was something worth changing. >> michael beschloss, scientists have been vising american presidents for decades, obviously we're in a slightly different media environment than what we've seen in the past. from your and pexpertise, have ever seen this divide, playing
3:09 pm
out in public? >> no, we haven't. and dwight eisenhower was the first president to put a science adviser in the white house because he wanted to make sure that a president had access tom kind of advice, which presidents have ever since. i think we're now to the point, you look at donald trump's leadership on this pandemic. i think americans of the future will see this as one of the worst examples of presidential leadership in all of american history. 230 years plus. and the reason is that it has been impulsive. he was elected. any president is elected for one fundamental purpose, and that is to keep americans safe. he did not help to avoid the pandemic. he did not deal with it when it came. he is not getting the best advice to mobilize his office to tell us to keep us safe now. and now we hear him talking about stopping delegates in a
3:10 pm
convention hall in jacksonville this summer and reopening schools. the most intelligent thing he said during this whole fiasco was, his role was as a war time president. he should have stuck tom. a war time president does things without regard to politics. how would americans have liked it in 1942 if franklin roosevelt had said to general george marshall, i don't like the news you're bringing me. i think you're an expert i should not consult and began a rift with general marshall the same way president trump has with dr. fauci. he is putting people in danger. the crisis is worse than ever. >> not only did he not deal with it. he even denied it was a serious threat to the country. >> and he's doing that more than ever. >> and that it would go away on its own. >> let me play for you, trump declaring the reason there are
3:11 pm
more virus cases in the united states is because there's more testing. as the cdc chief calls actually calls for more testing. >> we do testing like nobody has ever done testing. when we test, the more you test, the more cases you find. >> even though we're up over 600,000 tests a day, we continue to need more testing in this country to confront this outbreak. >> by the president's logic, if we didn't test anybody, we wouldn't have any cases in this country. sort this out for us factually. explain to our viewers why the president is so off base with this. >> i can't believe we're still having this conversation. i can't believe the president is still talking about the reason wave problem is because we're findsing the problem. and number two, i can't believe we're still having the conversation that we still have inadequate testing. we still have supply chain issues. most recently, the talk is about
3:12 pm
the turn around time in the tests. seven to ten days in most cases. the fact is the testing is absolutely the first step to eliminating, curtailing this epidemic. without it, you cannot finds cases, you cannot isolate cases, you cannot contact trace those cases. the more testing we do, number one, the more we understand the full depth or breadth of the problem, and the more testing we do, the lower the number of positive cases should become if we're going in the right direction. without that as a measure to follow, we are absolutely chasing our tails. we're blind. >> to your point, most surveys, at least the survey among people nbc news did as well suggests that 67% of americans reject how president trump, or disapprove, rather, how president trump has handled this. from your historic expertise,
3:13 pm
how have other presidents habuled national health crises like this? >> at the very beginning, a president would say i have a lot of power as president. i have all sorts of resources. i have a public platform. i'll going on use all that to keep americans as safe as they can possibly be and avoid cases in which their lives in jeopardy. and donald from the beginning has not followed that fundamental lesson that every other president does, especially in modern times. the result is that there are a lot of people who are not alive in america tonight who might have been alive had we had a more effective leader. >> thank you very much for starting us off this evening. coming up, a special guest who worked with the new york d.a. who will soon be revealing trump's tax returns for potential crimes. also, i'm going to talk to michael cohen's lawyer about whether he was sent back to prison because of his upcoming

3:18 pm
president trump reeling from his big loss at the supreme court, paving the way for a new york city prosecutor to get trump's tax records. a manhattan federal judge today ordering attorneys for both sides to inform the court by next wednesday morning how they expect to proceed. now, trump calling the supreme court ruling a political prosecution, but this is really legal and the stakes are very high for him. the court ruling that trump is not immune from criminal proceedings, meaning that manhattan district attorney cy vance can continue his investigation into hush money payments made to stormy daniels. vance calling it a tremendous victory, addsing no one, not even a president, is above the law. and that his investigation will resume. now, we don't know exactly what the investigation is. but the case is now headed back to the lower courts where mr. trump will presumely make the case that it is improper and
3:19 pm
then should mr. vance eventually win, as many legal experts expect, the tax returns to go to a secret grand jury that will delay the release of that information to the public, if it is released at all. this legal fight is new. every president has voluntarily released tax returns but trump can refuse maintaining the same excuse for past four years. >> i'm you understand a routine audit and when it is done, it will be released. >> when they're no longer you understand audit, he will release them. >> joining me now, the former chief assistant district attorney you understand cyrus vance from bloomberg opinion who actually saw some of trump's tax returns. let me begin with you. you worked with the district attorney general cy vance for many years. what are his next steps, do you think? >> well, right now, he needs to
3:20 pm
go back to court and fend any additional challenges. the supreme court very clearly left open some challenges. some that are available to the ordinary litigant, although they're almost never successful, and some available to presidents. right now he has to go back to the district court and make sure that those are taken care of and the judge orders the final production of the records. >> how do you see that playing out given what we've heard from jay sekulow, the president's attorney, saying that they're obviously going to fight this? what kind of avenues could they pursue to try to prevent this from moving forward? >> well, two categories of avenues. first are the ones available to any old it will ganlt who gets a subpoena, or is the subject of subpoenaed records. the other is available specifically to a president. the president stuff is virtually unprecedented. we'll have to see how that plays out. the supreme court specific will
3:21 pm
you said that if they can show, and it sounds like a heavy burden to me. bad faith, malice, it would impede his constitutional duties, that it would be an attempt to influence his official duties, there, theoretically the court could craft an order that would minimize those problems. on the other side, the kinds of objections available to the ordinary litigant, i would say they're highly unlikely to succeed. typically, courts under the new york standards, which the supreme court did have in the opinion. it is a very heavy burden on people seeking to challenge grand jury, very heavy burden. courts almost never grant that. they might give them more time but they won't say, no problem, this is too tough. you won't have to turn it over. >> let me ask but the tax returns. you've actually seen some of
3:22 pm
trump's tax returns. polling shows 56% of americans think trump has a responsibility to release them. and given trump's vast business interests, the fact that he is unlike any other president with his wealth and his business entanglement, so to speak, these tax returns actually matter. this is not just a competition between democrats and republicans for them. >> no. i think this is not a part sandal or ideological issue. this is about good government. and the supreme court ruling rehide on press denial. it cite that bill clinton and richard nixon had to provide records and testimony when requested because no president sits atop mt. olympus. we are a nation of laws. one of the things that has been tested in the trump administration the rule of law. and this administration has
3:23 pm
waged, i think, they've tried to wage a very withering attack in word and action, the notion that the supreme court pushed they will back. and john roberts was a conservative jurist, wrote that opinion. as much as donald trump wants to say this is about politics and he's a victim and a target here, the reality is this is how our nation, when it is functioning properly, should work. and i think it is wonderful that it has been tested and chair identified. where this meets the ground is right now, cy vance is looking at whether or not the trump organization possibly used accounting or financial fraud to mask payments to stormy daniels. on the face of that, at a minimum, a possible campaign violation. campaign finance violation. but once those records are in the district attorney's hands, there could be other things they see there. and one of the things
3:24 pm
historically trump has been loathe to confront were his tax records were to be made public, how much foreign money is coming into his business operations, any tax shenanigans. we know it is public record that the trumps tried to evade both state and income taxes, historically. there has been issues of possible money laundsering. all of this could become rolled up into the current investigation. if the president didn't have anything to hide, i think he would be more forthcoming with these records. >> to that point that tim just raised this about the tax returns, i want to get your thoughts about the difference in the two decisions by the supreme court yesterday. in general, or in broad perspectives, they both had to deal with the release of tax returns and financial records. but it seems, the one favoring the district attorney here in manhattan went against trump.
3:25 pm
the one for congress was perhaps in his favor as some have interpreted. do you see that it way? are they both in the same vein, just slightly more nuanced in. >> i think they're in the same vein. before congress, before this other branch of government. but the vance subpoena really didn't, the result didn't surprise me. criminal investigations, particularly grand jury investigations, have historically been given credible leeway in this country. and the state of new york has been particularly protective of grand jury's rights to every person's evidence. so it is not surprising to me at all that the supreme court gave relatively short shrift to some of the arguments there. i will say, to tim's point, the campaign finance violations that might possibly be you understand investigation are not state crimes. the d.a. is not investigating campaign finance violations.
3:26 pm
there may be related crimes, state crimes, like falsification of business records, that might relate to the stormy daniels payments. we don't ultimately know exactly what they are investigating because they're not required to tell. grand jury proceedings are secret under the law and they're allowed to look at the evidence and follow it wherever it leads. >> and the saga certainly continues. we'll find out more this wednesday. we'll talk more about this in a little bit. president trump brags about a cognitive test that he passed. why would he even take it in the first place? and where's the proof? we'll find out more in 30 seconds. we'll find out more in 30 seconds. and more one of a kind finds. it all ships free. and with new deals every day you can explore endless options at every price point. get your outdoor oasis delivered fast so you can get the good times going.
3:27 pm
♪ wayfair. you've got just what i need. ♪ new reporting on donald trump's state of mind with aides describing him as lost in self-pity, convenienting about news coverage, and quote, confounded by the events happening. in interviews with the "washington post," allies and advisers say trump has adopted a, quote, woe is me tone, casting himself in the starring role of the blameless victim as he confronts a slumping economy, surging pandemic, growing racial unrest, and a stumbling re-election campaign. at the same time, new polls show americans are unhappy with trump's response to many. these events. two-thirds now disapprove of trump's handling of the pandemic. that's the highest number recorded to date. 67% also disapprove of trump's
3:28 pm
handling of racial turmoil in this country. and now trump is reacting to those critics with unusual comments on hannity just last night, defending his own mental fitness. watchful. >> i actually took one, very recently, when i was, you know, the radical left was saying, is he all there, is he all there? i proved i was all there. i aced the test. i took it at walter reid medical center in front of doctors and they were very surprised. they said that's an unbelievable thing. rarely does anybody do what you just did. >> all right. joining me now is mark thompson, host of the make it plain podcast. and you've written a book about trump nation. what in the world is going on with this cognitive president is president is talking about, and the way he described it, the
3:29 pm
doctors were surprised that he passed it. i'm not sure if that's a compliment or not. >> like his financial records, the president has yet to make his health records public. whoever these mythical doctors are, if they exist, the president should trot them out in public and they should sign medical records that define what this test was and what the president actually passed. i think this is donald trump lying again publicly or fabric it fabricating it. who knows what he did at walter reid in he hand come clean about what the hospital visit was to begin with. having said this, this is another indicator the president is you understand pressure because he has failed to lead competently. one of the biggest crises to, the pair of crises ever to hit the united states, the pandemic and this important black lives matter movement.
3:30 pm
and he has not risen to the occasion to lead around those things. to show that he is a healthy adult who can learn from his mistakes and regroup and course correct. instead, he's looking around to blame other people, casting himself as the victim, and he's well aware the public is doubting both his leadership and his competency, his mental acutie. that's why he is pointing to these so-called cognitive tests to say other people have looked at me and i'm fine. it's because he knows the public is worried that he's not fine. >> you know the statement came out of the president's mind, journal is are wondering, what's going on? aides to mr. trump, according to the "new york times," aides to mr. trump did not respond to questions about what test he took, when he took it, and whether they would actually make the results public, to tim's
3:31 pm
point earlier. explain this to us. what is it we're watching here? the president going on national television saying he's taking cognitive tests, praising himself for the results and no one from his aides on down can confirm it or talk about it to the press. >> as always, his insecurity is well known and it's enormous. it doesn't make sense. he is attacking joe biden's cognition, and yet he feels the need to defend his own. why in and then to say that everyone was surprised that he did so well. that's not a very intelligent thing to say either. we don't even know if he took test or where it was a significant as a physician to say, whether it was even a significant neurological exam. the real question is not just
3:32 pm
cognition but also literacy. he was told, he read that there was a pandemic looming and he did nothing. he has been told that russia is seeking bounties for the heads of u.s. soldiers in afghanistan and he has done nothing. that's neither a question of cognition or literacy, i don't know what is. >> to that point, the president apparently confounded playing the victim card in all this. we see it in his tweets when he's going after the supreme court decisions, calling things presidential harass many. dismissing the court's decisions. what do you make of the president playing the victim card here? >> well, i really would recommend you mary trump's new book. she haze out in very telling detail this hot house emotional and psychological environment that the president grew up in, in which his father had a very binary view of the world. there are winners and losers.
3:33 pm
his father was a racist, his father was thuggish in his business practices. donald trump absorbed, adopted all of that and went out into the world with it. and i think mary trump has a key observation. this is someone who never felt loved and he sought it in all these public forums. i think one of the reasons he is very needy and wants to be center stage constantly. she has a very telling sentence in there. that donald trump feels the world let him down. if you are not sim that a athletic bik it, he will make you feel it. despite that he was born wealthy, despite the privileges he was born into, he constantly has this feeling of he's oppressed. people will take things away from him. everyone is against him. and he's been doing this, he's a 74-year-old man. he's been doing this for at
3:34 pm
least 60 years publicly. and we're just seeing it play out now on an international stage because he's president. >> mark thompson, the president's state of mind as he sees what's happening in this country all around him. it has been a tough couple weeks with the supreme court decision against him. yesterday new york city painted black lives matter outside trump tower. what do you think as he watches all this play out? >> well, even mentioning mary trump's book, there is no one worse in a position like him. that's why he doesn't care about what happens to the rest of us. he feels the world doesn't love him. he's a cross between rodney dangerfield for feeling that way, don rickles insulting everyone and foster brooks for
3:35 pm
his indicated eblgs. the three of russ too young to have seen those people but you can look them up on youtube. he even sounds like foster books, to one loves me. his followers are co-dependent on someone who feels he's never been loved. and he wants to make the rest us, if not the world, co-dependent, who loves him. vladimir putin. that's why he is so loyal. he probably didn't have the love from his parents and sabrelings and we can't allow ourselves to be victimized. as far as black lives matter is concern, i'm glad it was painted out there. he has called it something hateful. he has no idea what he's talking about and it is a direct lineage from his father to him. his father who himself was in the coku klux klan. >> a special special.
3:36 pm
i'll talk to a legal adviser live about the feds taken cohen back into custody amidst revelations he is writing a tell-all book about trump. tell-all book about trump. you can't predict the future. but a resilient business can be ready for it. a digital foundation from vmware helps you redefine what's possible... now. from the hospital shifting to remote patient care in just 48 hours... to the university moving hundreds of apps quickly to the cloud... or the city government going digital to keep critical services running. you are creating the future--
3:37 pm
on the fly. and we are helping you do it. vmware. realize what's possible.
3:38 pm
3:39 pm
all right. tonight michael cohen is back in prison amid a dispute over publishing a book about his former boss, donald trump. "the new york times" reports that cohen went to court for what he thought was paperwork for his home confinement. instead officials made him sign a document promising no engagement of any kind with the media, including print, tv, film or books. he agreed to sign it but not before u.s. marshals were called to haul him back to prison where he is serving time related to trump's hush money payments to stormy daniels. just last week he revealed that he was close to completion of his own book trump. this new book comes after
3:40 pm
trump's attempts to quash two other tell-all books by john bolt only, his former national security adviser, and his relative, mary trump. joining me now, the legal adviser to michael cohen. great to have you with us. thank you for joining us. first, let me get your thoughts about why you think or understand michael is going back to prison. do you believe it is related to his book in. >> i don't know what to believe but i have some instincts about too many quings denss. let's start with trying to kill john bolton's book and failing because of the first amendment. then trying to kill mary trump's book and failing because of the first amendment. that's donald trump trying to kill both of those books. then michael cohen who announce that's he's writing a book only about donald trump and his experiences, probably knowing donald trump better than his family for ten years, and suddenly, without any expectation, he goes to the
3:41 pm
courthouse, having nothing to do with a restaurant visit, which is the misinformation printed by the numbs. having nothing to do with anything that he has said or done with the media. because he's never been told that he's not allowed to do that. and suddenly he's presented with this piece of paper demanding that he give up the right not only to speak to the media or his family and friends to speak to the media. something i've never heard of before. but the right to publish a book. and he and his lawyers say to two information officers, can't we work this out in i do have a book that has nothing to do with the department of justice. if it has anything to do with the political interests of a president, that has nothing to do with the department of justice, we used to think in america. then they sit there for an hour and a half expecting to work things out. and inted of having a chance to work things out, and they still hope to work things out, marshals come up in an elevator,
3:42 pm
nothing against the federal marshals, and they have equipment that they're going to put wrists in shackles on michael cohen. without any explanation, the lawyer for mr. cohen said, can't we talk about this in we're waiting to talk. the answer was it's not in our hands. >> do you mind -- let me ask you really quick will that that. do you know what specifically was in the document they asked him to sign? who presented it to him in where do you think that order came from? >> well, it was a document, i've seen it on the television set and your media. it was issued by the federal department of probation, the buro of prisons was behind it. the first paragraph said you may not use your first amendment rights to talk to the media and you may not publish a book.
3:43 pm
and even though i've been asked all day long, is there any precedent for restricting first amendment speech when you're on holm confinement in the middle of a pandemic crisis and you've served one half of your sentence. the answer is, i don't think so. the one thing i do ask, it was in president's interests to stop this book from being published. mr. cohen received a cease and desist letter, which is kind of silly, by a lawyer, and he will, see attached nondisclosure agreement. there was no attachment to the letter. now he's been thrown back into prison because he said i plan to write a book. it is about mr. trump's political interests that he's put back in prison. i have no answer to the question but it is a question that somebody should be answering in the department of justice. because there's no relevance. there used to be no relevance between a president's political interests and decisions made by
3:44 pm
the department of justice regarding issues concerning the darrel of justice. we now know under the trump regime, there is no difference between many barr as attorney general of the united states and mr. barr as personal attorney. it is just politics that the politics of president trump had something to do with muzzling michael cohen. >> do you think there is a double daniel dastandard in how they'rehamming the case and how the president wants to pardon or commute the sentence of roger stone in. >> let me answer your question by not answering. it appears to be a double standard. i'll state a fact and let your audience add two plus two. the only member of the entire trump business organization, i'm not talking about mr. stone or mr. manafort. the only member of the trump
3:45 pm
