tv   Chris Jansing Reports  MSNBC  June 1, 2022 10:00am-11:00am PDT

10:00 am
rigorously tested by us. real world tested by you. and delivered to your door in as little as one hour. ♪♪ hello. good to be with us. i'm chris jansing at msnbc world headquarters in new york. right now folks are frustrated. the white house staff under pressure from the president to nail down a strategy to fight the rising prices of just about everything and find a more compelling message for the american people. to see what the president is up against, just take a look at gas prices. the nationwide price of gas hit a record high green today for the third day in a row. now up to $4.67, according to aaa. five cents higher than just
10:01 am
yesterday. the fear for democrats, that voters frankly have had enough. >> the price of gas is just outrageous. >> these gas prices are crazy. luckily i'm close to my business, so i don't have to spend as much. i used to fill up with 60, and now it's like 100. >> we'll have fresh reporting from the white house in just moments. in uvalde, texas, we're hearing from the school district's police chief in several days. he says, in spite of reports to the contrary, he is in touch with state investigators. also live this hour, we are keeping tabs on a briefing at the pentagon. we will cover a big announcement from the president, that the u.s. will provide some longer-range rocket systems to ukraine, although those weapons come with a condition. and hurricane season is here, and it could be a busy one. we just got a brand-new briefing, and al roker will join
10:02 am
me in studio with what we should expect. i want to start with rising costs and the uphill climb the white house faces. just take a look at this chart. it sums things up from gallup. right now we're at the lowest point of confidence in the entire covid pandemic era. driving that, at least in part, the cost of basic food items. eggs up 55%, the price of milk up 16%. the price for oranges, up 14%. tom costello is covering this, and mike memoli, and also jonathan lamire. tom, give us an overview of how inflation is hittings americans
10:03 am
where it hurts right now. >> i think every single american feels it it every single day, when they're pumping gas, buying food, when they go out to eat, for example, all of that is biding into the family budget. home prices up 20% in march? that's on top of, as you know, food up 11%, gasoline prices surging across the country. we talk about the national average of 4.67. it's $6.20 in california, which has higher costs because of refinery differences and taxes. i've got to tell you, you now have the federal reserve raising interest rates. they've already had two hikes. he expect to race rates by a percentage point sometimes over the summer, and jamie dimon today is warning of what he calls a hurricane on the way, an economic hurricane, in part because he thinking the fed is
10:04 am
behind the eight ball on this one. raising rates too slowly, and chasing a flood of money into the economy really over the last ten years. i start with a housing crisis when we had a massive economic stimulus to help the economy recover, then you poured money in with the tax cuts, more economic stimulus during the emergency with a pandemic. as a result, the fed right now is trying to raise rates, but it's like the cat's out of the bag, and it's a very, very challenging environment right now. in fact, jamie dimon is predicting we'll see oil hit 150, $175 a barrel, and most experts already believe we will see $5, $6 a gallon gas across the country within a few months. the situation here is really challenging for this administration and the fed trying to get this under control. >> you just can't get away from the fuel prices, tom. >> yeah. >> even if it means it will cost
10:05 am
you more to go to the beach because you want to get away from it all, and the airfares. >> right now jet fuel is up 115% over the year. the problem is, most of the unrefined oil from jet fuel came from russia. as a result, that is mostly off the market right now. there are only about half an many refineries as there were 15 years ago in the united states. we may see a shortage of jet fuel in the united states later this summer, driving up ticket prices even higher, but over in europe, they are likely to see not just a shortage of jet fuel, but an outage in places. you may see flight cancellations in europe, because they simply don't have enough jet fuel. >> in fact, yesterday, jonathan, when i was talking to cecilia roush she heard what putin's price hike.
10:06 am
that's a tough argument to make when you're trying to make a reservation to go somewhere -- to fly somewhere for your vacation or even get in the car and go to the beach. >> yeah, certainly the war in ukraine, putin's invasion has contributed, but it's not the only thing. nearly every consumer good is affected. it's not unique here in the united states. we certainly should underscore that, but the white house is keenly aware. i contributed to a story today that notes that white house chief of staff ron klain every single day checks the price of an average gallon of gas, and ruefully, and at times colorfully, exclaims, wonders why it's the one price that everyone knows. because it's on the billboards of the highways. and there's a sense month the white house and biden advisers,
10:07 am
that it is inflation and gas and groceries, those costs in particular, that will be the number one issue in the mid terms. the mass 1450dings, war in ukraine, ongoing pandemic, but the pocketboor issues they believe will be the driving force for voters and bad for democrats. president biden wanting more inflation events, but making it clear there's only so much he can do. a key moment as they point the finger to powell, look, this is the face of the response. the white house's hands are largely tied. >> to that point, the president did meet with the fed chair and the treasury secretary yesterday during this hour. secretary yellen called it manageable last year. here's what she's saying now. >> i think i was wrong then
10:08 am
about the path that inflation would take. as i mentioned, there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy that have boosted energy and food prices, and supplied bottlenecks that have affected our economy badly, that i at the time didn't fully understand. >> so, mike, is there a cohesive strategy at the white house to right this ship? >> well, chris, what do they say? the first step is admitting you have a problem. in that case, admitting a mistake, a stark admission from the treasury secretary, especially giving her experience. but it is interesting to hear white house officials tell graphing that this month there will be a much more concerted effort, to use their words, to focus on inflation, which egg abouts the question -- what have they been doing before now?
10:09 am
it's not necessarily the quantity of the messaging, but the quality, the president himself frustrated by what he's been seeing, with his approval ratings dipping to under where president trump stood. what did we actually hear from the white house? brian deese going to the briefing room, and pointing to the euro inflation to indicate it's not just a u.s. policy problem here, but a global challenge based on multiple shocks to the system, but also saying, look what the administration has done already, making the economy on a stronger footing to deal with these challenges in a much better way that is some of the competition and allies around the world. what we heard yesterday was the word "understanding" the president understands this is a problem, getting to the issue of
10:10 am
empathy, and also pointing the finger as well to republicans, saying they need more help to pursue the kind of policies that the president has put forward. >> which brings us to the big-picture question, can you empathize your way out of this. jonathan, you brought up the mid terms. there are analysts in ohio to say the biggest problem for tim ryan, the democrat there, is frankly joe biden and the economy and whether or not he can convince a state that has been trending republican, that he's the guy to do this. so what are you hearing from democrats generally, whether it's on the hill, out in the u.s.? how much pressure is there on the president to get something done, to get his messaging together before those november elections? a significant and growing amount of pressure. democrats can real poll numbers.
10:11 am
november is still a long way off. things can turn around, particularly in the senate. some democrats believe they can still hang on partly because of the quality of candidates the republicans are putting forward. yes, the president is good empathizing, but it is also about actions. they're going to need something here. there's still hope that pieces of the legislation may get through the congress in the weeks ahead, though the clock is certainly ticking there, there is a growing sense of frustration among democrats and many voters, the polls reflect that, that as much as the president has done -- there's a significant number of accomplishments -- but not a lot done on voting rights, guns and now of course inflation, and democrats are worried. >> thank you all to come. today, a teacher in uvalde
10:12 am
and her husband been being buried today. and we'll hear from the chief of police now talking about claims he's not cooperating with investigators. he says that's not true. plus we'll talk to the mayor of buffalo, new york, about the new push on gun reform. and later, are we on the cusp of another covid surge? cases are spiking. and axios headlines, the virus is outrunning the vaccines. runns riders! let your queries be known. uh, how come we don't call ourselves bikers anymore? i mean, "riders" is cool, but "bikers" really cool. -seriously? -denied. can we go back to meeting at the rec center? the commute here is brutal.

10:16 am
right now, we have some answers to the questions we asked ideas. first, we wanted to know in state investigators have interviewed him about what happened. officials told nbc, no, he hasn't responded to a request for a second interview. today, he showed up in his office and said, in fact, he has been in touch. >> just so everybody knows, we've been in contact with dps every day. i've been on the phone with them every day. >> he also says he'll talk about
10:17 am
what happened, but not wile the funerals are going on. that leads us into the second question -- he was sworn in yesterday as council member, but not publicly as initially planned. officials said that was out of respect for the families, fakes asking for answers. >> chris, what can you tell us? >> as we speak, funerals are taking place. we were outside the church where the funeral services began today. there was heavy presence of law enforcement from several action, members of the media watched from across the street, complete silence outside the church
10:18 am
members of the community has been asking for privacy. a lot of them saying they don't want to speak, they want for focus on the grieves. many people are telling me they feel like they said to do something to help. they don't know how, so they've been driving into town to pay respects. i did meet a woman who was here with her granddaughter, who knew one of the one girls who died. she told me members of the community are following up on the services, but they don't want to pay too much attention to the investigation at the moment. their focus, from what she told me, is on all of these services taking place throughout the week. the other service for jose flores, he's the little boy whose sister was in another classroom, is my understanding,
10:19 am
both in fourth grade. she was able to escape. he was not. in the meantime, the police chief now saying he's been in contact with the department of public safety. >> right, everything is breaking as we speak. yesterday we all found out that the city mayor went forward with the council members were all sworn in, as we mentioned. that was a surprise to a lot of us. many people were questioning whether he would be sworn in. we know he was sworn in, as you mentioned. this morning when he spoke and said he's been in touch with the investigators, a lot of us were surprised after what we had heard. what we know is he did speak with them with one interview and there were reports that maybe he wasn't speaking to them anymore,
10:20 am
but it's difficult to know the details of that investigation. we're trying to follow up. as you know, we know he says he's any touch with state investigators here. chris? >> guad, thank you for the update. president biden just made the announcement last night, more sophisticated weapons, but ukraine had to make a promise. more details are next on "chris jansing reports." t on "chris jansing reports. you know liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need? oh, like how i customized this scarf? wow, first time? check out this backpack i made for marco.

10:25 am
anitony blinking said today that ukraine has given assurances that it will not use them on targets on russian soil. my limited knowledge of these rocket systems, they're mobile, they are precise. we just learned from the briefings that they expect it will take about three weeks to train the ukrainians on how to use them. so, tell us, real world, on the ground in ukraine, how can they beby used by ukrainian forces? >> systems like these are most useful in what's called a battery, and attacking artillery rocket systems. the russians have a lot of artillery rockets. most of the destruction we have seen comes from artillery, not from missiles. this would allow the ukrainians more effectively to attack these russian systems.
10:26 am
they have a longer rain, and they come in an unguided variety, and a guided variety. so the guided variety, of course, can hit exactly where you're aiming, but even the unguided, because the rockets can fire so many munitions in a short period of time, that overwhelms batteries on the ground.

this afternoon, a bipartisan group of u.s. senators will meet on zoom to talk through what kind of gun safety reforming might actually stand a chance of passing. we keep hearing words like hopeful and optimistic from senators about this process. michael steele said on "morning joe", however, that the senate schedule alone makes this complicated. >> this is the stall-and-delay tactic. they're not back from the memorial day holiday. they'll be in town for a couple weeks, then off for the fourth of july, they're back for a couple weeks, and then they're off for august. when does this bill get done?
10:33 am
>> cities are taking act. the a.p. reports that new york city is exploring gun detectors in subways after a mass shooting there. seven new york mayors will launch a new effort against gun violence. byron brown hosted that meeting for those mayors. he joins me now. mr. mayor, good to see you. i know you called for that meeting after the racially motivated shooting in your own city. what are the new laws that you are pushing for that you think might be effective? >> well, it's important for mayors to work together, urban, suburban, rural, that's what the meeting was about. bringing mayors of new york state together. the governor has proposed a series of new laws that we think could make is very helpful, as far as gun reform in new york
10:34 am
state. one is increasing the age to purchase a gun to 21. we'd like to see that happen nationwide, but doing it in new york state is certainly in the right direction. and making it more difficult for people with mental illness to be able to obtain guns, and then just the communication between municipalities all across the state, cities, counties working together, shares information and sharing information in real time to be able to address gun violence, and to do more together to reduce gun violence in our communities. >> we mentioned, mr. mayor, folks like chris murphy, leading the charge on the senate side for new gun legislation has used words like "hopeful."
10:35 am
when you talk to other mayors around the state, are they hopeful as well for what can be done on a local or state level? >> so mayors across the country really are fed up. they're feeling like enough is enough, that our federal government has not acted. the inaction of the federal government has allowed hundreds of mass shootings to occur. in my city of buffalo and communities all across this country. this is a nationwide phenomenon, and so we are resolved to keep speaking up, to keep speaking out, not to go to be silent, to what we can at the local levels, and keep pushing lawmakers at the federal level to do more. we will not settle for the level
10:36 am
of inaction and inactivity on gun reform that we have seen for years. so there's going to be a concerted effort from mayors all across the state of new york and all across the country to keep these issues in the forefront. >> there was a powerful column i read this afternoon in your home paper "the buffalo news" about how chris jacobs abruptly changed his position to strengthening gun laws after the shooting in your community. here's from that column -- so the only question now seems to be how many more such tragedies will it take in members ease home communities to sway a few more reps, particularly in the u.s. senate? as rational human beings, we like to think we can learn from what happens to others without having to personally experience. obviously it doesn't work that
10:37 am
way in washington. do you think that's right? is even a shooting in a community enough to change minds? certainly ted cruz, governor abbott aren't any more likely to change than before uvalde? >> for rational people, it should be enough to change minds. for people with human feeling, it should be enough to change minds. in buffalo and erie county, it was enough to change the mind of congressman chris jacobs, a republican, who has spoken out at his own peril. now we understand in our local community that there are opponents that will probably be stepping up to run against him because of changing his position on gun reform and trying to protect his community and other communities across the country. congressman chris jacobs has
10:38 am
taken exactly the right position. i am appreciative of his change of heart, and hopefully his change of heart and his courage will cause other lawmakers, other republican lawmakers to grow a backbone and to take an equally strong position on gun reform. >> time will tell. we will be watching, as well as watching the movement inside cities across america. mayor byron brown, thank you so much for taking the time to be with us today. right now we're seeing startling headlines in the coronavirus pandemic. this is from "the washington post" -- cases are five times higher now than they were last year, with more than 100,000 infections a day. from "new york times" during the omicron wave, death rates soared for older people. from axios, omicron is
10:39 am
outrunning the vaccines designed to fight it. so how effective are they the more this virus changes and, of course, these new subvariants. >> certainly if we compare ourselves to the unvaccinated, you are truly more vaccinated in any regard, as far as reduction in infection, reduction in hospitalization and death, but i think we need to steer away from saying is the vaccine any less or more effective, and recognize when we had the vaccines originally, we also have masks and mitigaing factors. due to our limiting social interactions, and that has greatly changed over the last few years, if not few months. >> this is particularly scary for older americans. the "new york times" report, quote -- almost many americans 65 and older died in four months of the omicron surge, as in six
10:40 am
months in the delta wave, even though the delta variant tedded to cause more severe illness. what does that tell us? what is the message for people 65 and older, with underlying conditions, about where this pandemic is right now and what they should be doing? >> certainly that it is not over. what they should be doing is the same things from back in march 2020, wear those masks, socially distancing. we know the variants have learned to trick our immune system, and again we, as people, we are no longer playing our role in mitigating the spread. it's not just to older persons. we need to look at the younger people, too. the death rates for white people in particular, in their 30s, literally tripled last fall as the previous winter. tripled for white people in their late 30s. this is not just an old person's disease. we see it go all the way down to our children.
10:41 am
i think we need to do a great job of that from the cdc on to down to our level of saying, it's not just the sick, not just the old, it truly can be you, too. >> dr. ebony hilton, words to the wise. thank you so much. now let's look at the weather. we have dramatic video catching the moment a funnel formed in new port richey, florida, about 40 miles northwest of tampa. the national weather confirming it touched down tuesday evening. while folks no western minnesota are still surveying the damage, we're watching for a more storms tonight. about 18 million people are at risk. that brings us to today, the first official day of the atlantic hurricanes season. experience warts it will be busy. in the past two hours noaa held a press conference.
10:42 am
their prediction, expect 14 to 21 named storms between three and six major hurricanes. i have co-host of "today" al roker. so good to see you. i don't like this news, though. worse than normal, right? >> welcome, unfortunately this has been what we've been seeing over the last several years. here's what we're looking at, chris, right now. as you mentioned, we've got the record seventh consecutive above-average season expected, 65% chance above average. we look at this year, as far as the season is concerned, 14 to 21 named storms, 6 to 10 hurricanes, 3 to 6 major hurricanes. that's pretty much what we saw last year in 2021. so two years in a row we may be looking at this. this is why noaa came out with this outlook. for the third consecutive year
10:43 am
we're talking about la nina, cooler than average temperatures at the equator. that weakens tradewinds, which sometimes creates shears for hurricanes. plus warmer water in the atlantic, that increases the chance for tropical cyclone formation. when we look at similar years, these areas are the hot spots. look how much this is a hot spot from the gulf all the way into the caribbean sea. this is where we're looking for development currently. here are the names starting with alex, which, if we see something developing, that will be our first named storm. what's being -- interesting, we went through 9 entire list last year. could we be looking at that
10:44 am
again? we could be looking at a very busy time. here's what we're expecting. we're watching the tropics. these are some of the remnants that hitting a athat. there's an 80% chance from the yucatan to southern florida, we look for this to develop possibly into a tropical system. low pressure will develop over the yucatan tomorrow, continue to move to the north and east. whether it becomes a tropical system or not, it will dump a ton of rain, gusty winds, isolated tornadoes for a good portion of florida. in fact, from central to southern florida, we could be talking about inches of rain. while they're usually in a reactive situation, well,
10:45 am
they're changing their stance because of climate change. she talked about how they're changing their attitude. >> reporter: so, administrator, seventh year in a row, noaa predicting an above-normal season, which begs the question -- is it a new normal? >> i do feel like this has been become a new normal. the trends we're seeing seeing today are different from ten years ago. we are focusing more specifically to ahead of these storms, and how can we help use the mitigation funding and programs we have to build more mitigation projects to protect their communities. >> some of those projects, a lot of places, especially along the east coast, their storm drain
10:46 am
systems are antiquated. they are designed to handle storms 40, 50 years ago. a lot of these systems are over-producing, 30% more rain than they did 20 years ago. so they have to get ahead of this as we go forward into this next century. >> that interview, one reason why you're doing this initiative. come back anytime. we want to hear more about this. also, i'm having pocketsquare envy. i love, love it. >> 922 votes as we get the close-up, that's what separates the top two republicans in the still unresolved battle to become the next u.s. senator from pennsylvania. we are live inside the ballot counting facility as the recount officially gets started in a race that will be critical to determine which party controls the senate next year.

aleve it, and see what's possible. if you've been living with heart disease, reducing cholesterol can be hard, even when you're taking a statin and being active. but you can do hard. you lived through the blizzard of ninety-six... twelve unappreciative bosses... seventeen fad diets... five kids, three grandkids... one heart attack... and eighteen passwords that seem to change daily. and with leqvio, you can lower your cholesterol, too. when taken with a statin, leqvio is proven to lower bad cholesterol by over 50% and keep it there with two doses a year. common side effects of leqvio were injection site reaction, joint pain, urinary tract infection, diarrhea, chest cold, pain in legs or arms, and shortness of breath. with leqvio, lowering cholesterol becomes just one more thing life throws your way. ask your doctor if leqvio is right for you.

10:51 am
defamation trial. it will be read at 3 p.m. eastern. depp suing his ex-wife for $50 million in damages over her 2018 "washington post" op-ed in which she said she became, a quote, public figure representing domestic abuse. heard is countersuing for $100 million saying she only ever became violent with depp in self-defense or in defense of her young are sister. that's coming up at 3:00. we have updates on two critical senate races key in determining control of the senate in november. in ohio a new poll shows democratic congressman tim ryan neck and neck with trump-packed republican j.d. vance. ryan is in a statistical tie. and a recount is pennsylvania is under way. just over 900 votes separating dr. mehmet oz and david
10:52 am
mccormick. that hasn't stopped dr. oz from calling himself the presumptive nominee. joining me from lancaster, pennsylvania, nbc news correspondent dasha burns. so tell me what's going on there. >> reporter: today is the deadline for all pennsylvania counties to begin that recount process. here in lancaster they started this yesterday morning. you can see the good folks here, natalie, j.j., crista and court courtney working hard. they hope to be done by the end of the week. we also have election watchers here, folks from the oz and the mccormick campaign. they must finish the process by june 7th and get the results to the secretary of state by june 8th. the mccormick campaign just asked for a hand recount from 12 county, including lancaster.
10:53 am
that could slow down the process if granted. and we have multiple lawsuits going in parallel as well, complicating an already complicated process. the question at the heart of this, will any of this change the outcome? what will this impact be? i talked to the county commissioner about this earlier today. take a listen to what he told me. >> 900 votes out of 1.3 million is .000 something difference. i think that unfortunately, though, most of the counties going to come is going to make a small difference. but a small difference out of 1.3 million, you might be able to find 900. i don't expect lancaster county's number to change hardly at all so it's not going to come from here. >> you'll probably hear that from other county economiesers if you ask as well. just a request reality check here in the three recounts, none
10:54 am
of them have changed the results of an election. anything can happen with a razor thin margin. >> dasha, thank you for that. we're seeing a shift of a critical group of voters abandoning the democratic party to become republicans, especially in florida. my guest has been following the shift in her new series called "field report", also streaming on peacock. i wonder, did you find sort of a through line as you spoke to people about what's motivating this change? >> the first thing that i found is that almost every single person that i talked to was a former democrat. they formerly voted for president obama at some point. some organized for bernie sanders and they fell they couldn't fully express their values and full selves.
10:55 am
the second thing we found is that this fear of socialism is very much entrenched in the south florida la teen ho community. that fear is fueling the culture wars and fueling the disinformation and the extremism. we also found that is not very much alive among latino voters, it's also alive in latino candidates. i want to show you a clip of a conversation i had with a latina mexican running for congress in the 13th district. >> do you believe that the 2020 election was stolen? >> yes, i believe that president trump won that election and i do believe that voter fraud occurred. >> i'm assuming, then, that you don't believe that president biden is the legitimate president of the united states? >> joe biden might be sitting in the white house but a lot of people if they did vote for him are regretting that decision. >> answer the question. do you believe he is the legitimate president? >> no. >> so if they don't believe he's
10:56 am
the legitimate president, what else -- i don't know that there's anything else that can sort of move the needle if you are deciding that you're going to become a republican but that can't be everybody. you talked about socialism. the other things when i've spoken to folks, it's been abortion, it's been some of those what would be religious social issues. what are you finding overall? is this something that the democrats can find a way to win back? >> i think so. of course. the number one issue that always comes up, as you said, it's not immigration, it's not really latino issues. it's the economy. everyone wants to find a way to survive. what democrats have to understand is can you have it both ways? can you win those latinas that have been lost to trump and also try and win back and appease the progressives that voted for you in places like arizona, in nevada? i don't know if both can happen. >> we're looking forward to seeing this tonight. again, field report with paola
10:57 am
ramos will be starting tonight on peacock in. >> that's right. >> thank you so much. we're looking forward to that. that's going to do it for this hour. katy tur reports starts next. cw katy tur reports starts next that permanent solution.
