tv CNN Tonight With Don Lemon CNN January 9, 2017 8:00pm-9:01pm PST
that's jared kushner. he today named a senior adviser to the president. meryl streep blasts the president-elect in her golden globe speech. is hollywood playing into the president-elect's hands. i'm going to ask one of the celebrities taking aim at donald trump, you don't want to miss that. >> let's get to jim acosta. douglas brinkley. you came back for more punishment? >> yes. >> what are you learning about d.c.'s new power couple? >> you know, it's interesting. and it falls under the category of unprecedented. to see the son in law of the incoming president, being teed up to serve in a consequential role, it's something we haven't seen in a long time. what they're saying is, jared kushner is not going to take a salary as senior adviser to the president. they're saying that's not the reason why he's not breaking these nepotism laws, they're saying the president-elect has
broad discretion to pick the team he wants. that allows his son in law to serve in this capacity. he is going to have to divest himself of many of his holdings, he's going to have to recuse himself and ivanka trump is not going to be taking a position early on in this administration, she is going to be the first daughter, but she too will be selling off a lot of her holdings, investments, resigning from positions with the various companies she's involved in. because they want -- the transition says they want to make sure they are putting this appearance that they're not going to be in violation of any of these ethics rules. >> as we discussed last hour, no one knows for sure, except for when the financial disclosures are sent to the government, that that's the only oversite they have. >> the press release said his son in law in this position, is going to work closely with chief
of staff reince priebus, steve bannon. bannon, priebus and kushner have formed an effective leadership team. three very different men, three different backgrounds. >> i think there's a lot of balance, i think that -- you know, you have steve bannon who's this outsider, populous nationalist guy. you have reince priebus, who's an insider republican. and you have jared kushner, who is the family member, the trusted confidant. this is a trio that worked quite well in helping pull off an amazing election, let's see how they work together in the administrati administration. >> the 1967 anti-nepotism law specifies that son in law is part of the nepotism. the trump administration is claiming that soon is not is not
part of the rules. >> he's going to be able to be an adviser to donald trump. as we talked about many times, those laws were aimed at bobby kennedy. somebody may sue the white house over this, but in the end he will be there advising donald trump in a month or so. >> what are the optics of a son in law getting such a senior role in the white house? >> i think to the average american out there, it's not weird, it's not problematic. it makes a lot of sense. you have a guy whose a member of the family who's trusted, and frankly i think that it's a little bit comforting, because i think that ivanka trump and jared have been two of the people who have been voices of
reason keeping donald trump in check. it would be a travesty or silly to rule them out from advising him. >> before i get back to jim many i'm going through the files here, i had for the earlier show. >> my sister maureen lived in the white house and advised my father, along with representing a u.n. conference on women. you know, and -- that's what michael reagan tweeted. is that the same thing as jared or ivanka being in the white house? >> well, jared and ivanka have to be separated. right now, jared's going to get security clearance. i think the democrats need to aim at people like pruitt, at epa, and go after jeff sessions, it's going to be hard to stop donald trump from having his son in law in the white house. there may be, as i said, people that sue over this, it will be debated, i think it may be a lost cause to try to stop a
family member like that from being in the white house chief of staff. if he was up for cabinet, it would be impossible. in this particular job, the law is going to bend in trump's favor. >> the ranking democrat on the house judiciary committee said he's asking the obama justice department to look into this, but what douglas brinkley is saying is right, at this point, it's not stopping donald trump from doing this, he can pick the team that he wants to have in there, and that includes his son in law. and if he wants to bring in the rest of the kids, that could become more of a problem because they said his sons don jr. and eric are going to run the companies, there are some questions about, if don jr. and eric are running the companies, can they sit in on official business, they've done that during this transition, there are some separation issues they're going to have to work through. >> i think if you look at the
way that trump has run. it's always been unorthodoxed, there's some psychological warfare and all sorts of devious strategies, they're flooding the zone. there's too many things going on. you can't be against how many? 9 -- this week -- >> nine of these. >> you stole my question. >> go ahead. >> you have jared kushner the same week, democrats simply can't be against everything. so i think this is going to slide through, and they're going to have to pick their spots. maybe it's going to be sessions, maybe tillerson, you can't stop everything and so i think that's part of the calculus here. >> they just announced tonight they're delaying the confirmation hearing for betsy devos, did you know that? >> that just came in a few moments ago, i think the big moment of this week, potentially may be the sessions confirmation hearing that matt referenced. it was announced earlier this evening, that cory booker, senator from new jersey who's been talked about as a potential
candidate is going to be testifying against senator sessions. a sitting senator testifying against another sitting senator, to try to block his -- being put over at the justice department in the spot of attorney general. that is history that we're going to be witnessing, and also the civil rights icon, john lewis also testifying against senator jeff sessions. that's going to make for very difficult political theater for the trump transition team. that is not a fight they want right now. >> jared kushner, can you put that aside. the sessions hearing is something everybody's going to be watching this week. >> you want to wear h weigh-in on that. >> i couldn't agree with that more. the democrats are going to try to paint sessions as being a big bigot. and cory booker is starting to get some momentum right now as a leader of the democratic party. there's a void out there. barack obama's leaving, john kerry's leaving, cory booker is one of the stars of the party on
race, he's going to go after sessions, i think tomorrow's going to be a lot of sparks and booker may start becoming along with schumer, one of the two real leading voices of the democrats on capitol hill. >> interesting, i asked the democrats response, and that's probably going to be their response. do you think that -- i mean, is it -- sessions is going to be confirmed, right? >> unless he messes up. there's always somebody, whether it's tom daschle or linda chavez, something comes out about them in the vetting or they don't have a good hearing. >> my guess would be, sessions being a senator for a long time, these are his colleagues, he's been prepping for this, probably will be fine. maybe this is a way for cory booker to develop that bench. there's a chance. he could play the game. something could come out, and it could derail him. >> i'm wondering, the news conference is supposed to be on
wednesday, right? >> right. >> donald trump's first, the president-elect's first news conference since july. that means some of the hearings won't be televised. they'll be battling there. is that a coincidence? >> is it a coincidence we're not getting this news conference until nine days before the election. after the electoral college met? after the votes were officially tallied in the congress by the vptd? >> what's interesting, president obama's final address. >> i think this is more of a rebuttal opportunity for donald trump. this is going to be a prebuttal for barack obama to trump. these last eight years can't be cast by the wayside, donald trump is going to have this opportunity on wednesday, not only to talk about jared kushner and these nominees for cabinet positions, he's going to answer
these questions about russia, we still don't have a direct answer from donald trump on the intelligence community's findings on russia meddling in the election, the question donds get much bigger than that. this is probably the only chance we're going to have to pepper him with questions so close to the inauguration. >> matt keeps reading ahead in the text back. i did that, actually. i did that in fourth grade, and my math teacher was really upset with me. i had to go back and start over again. >> i want to ask you about -- the president is going to get his farewell address. we know he gives great speeches. this is the speech of his life. what does he have to do tomorrow. he's going to come out and hit it out of the ballpark. the weight will be off of his shoulders. >> i think he does have to hit it out of the ballpark, he's preparing for it, it's maybe the most watched farewell address in
american history. he's going to steal a page from dwight eisenhower and do a warning, the warning that barack obama's going to give, is the country divided cannot stand that we are ripping at each other right, left, conservatives, liberals, we're losing a sense of what it means to be an american. and that may disappoint some on the left, i think he's going to try to be a healer, but also warn us we're sewing seeds of destruction here at home, with bigotry, hate speech, humiliation. reckless politics, the powerful and privilege taking advantage of the weak everyone down trodden. i believe he's working on it exceedingly hard. it's going to be a seminole moment in obama's presidential history. >> thank you very much. >> speaking of which, thanks, everyone. >> let's talk about hollywood. >> hollywood royalty versus the president-elect. meryl streep uses her golden globe speech to talk to donald trump, i'm going to talk to one of her celebrity defenders.
as after a dvt blood clot,ital i sure had a lot to think about. what about the people i care about? ...including this little girl. and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i asked my doctor. and he recommended eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. yes, eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.
president-elect donald trump using twitter to take a swipe at meryl streep. this after streep called out trump at the golden globe awards. >> there was one performance this year that stunned me. it was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter
someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. it kind of broke my heart when i saw it, and i still can't get it out of my head, because it wasn't in a movie, it was real life. >> here to discuss now, actress rosie perez. the rosie perez. thank you for joining us. >> how are you? >> what did you think of meryl streep's speech? >> i thought it was brave, and it was her right to say so, to speak her mind. it's really funny, i remember back in the day, when people used to criticize celebrities for not speaking out on issues such as aids or homelessness or reagan openics or what have you. and now all of a sudden, they're telling us to be quiet. and i don't think that's right. it's so unamerican. isn't that why the pilgrims came here, they wanted freedom of
speech, they wanted to live free and have the right to speak anywhere mind and to, you know, practice the religion that they want to practice, and here now we're being told to be quiet, and i just -- i thought it was very brave. because i believe that hate and fear is just ruining the soul of america, it really is. it's -- but i do have an immense amount of hope. watching her on the golden globes really confirmed that hope. >> i have to play devil's advocate. people say, listen, when i tune into an awards show, i don't want to see your political beliefs, i don't want to see a speech, i want to see you accept an award. and you say? >> it's our right. that's what i say. that's a specific platform,s it's a privilege for celebrities
that celebrities are afforded. you voice your opinion on social media, you put it out there to the world, you have that right. >> i'm sure if you had a red carpet, you would stand up and use that as well. >> i don't believe in fried open for hate speech. >> no. >> just because i don't agree with you, that's what freedom of speech was meant for, speech you didn't agree with. it's surprising to me that people who didn't agree with what she said -- i agree with her right to do it, it's funny my first reaction to someone who said she shouldn't do it. what do you mean, it's unamerican not to speak your mind, even if it's not what the other person believes. >> exactly. and it's -- you know, i have friends who are trump supporters, i sit next to them when i go to a boxing match at the barclays. you know, we get along just
fine. my issue is not with trump supporters. my issue is with our president-elect. do i hate our president-elect? no. do i want to see him fail? not necessarily. because that means we all fail, right? >> i want it to work out. but i will hold his feet to the fire, and i have the right to do that, and i have the right to voice that, and i -- you know, when i did this video. >> i'm going to talk about that. you have this video. it's a psa and it's called stand up for us. >> right. >> sally field and steve buscemi. here's rosie. >> dear members of congress. >> dear members of congress. >> dear members of congress. >> dear members of congress. >> i'm mad. >> flabbergasted, furious. >> concerned for my children. >> i'm worried for everyone. >> the majority of americans regardless of who they voted for, did not voight for racism.
>> sexism or xeno phobia. and yet donald trump won. >> hate crimes are rising. >> people of color attacked in his name. >> you represent us in congress. >> you are our last line of defense opinion. >> so it's a lot of public figures, not just celebrities. why did you want to be involved in -- and why is it important? >> because 75% of the people in that video are not celebrities. we have two rabbis, an imam, a bishop, a former police chief, union workers. we have activists and only 25% of celebrities were in that video. you know, i did the video because i truly believe in our right to hold our elected officials accountable. and we are speaking to congress, we are speaking to the senate saying, we want you to represent
us in the right way. >> yes. >> and if you don't, we will come for you. >> if you do, we will applaud you and we will support you. and that is our right as americans. >> you know what i hear from -- and i think this is sort of the bsh -- what this video is saying, is that i hear from a lot of people who did not necessarily support donald trump. they say, i don't have a problem with a conservative as president, i don't have a problem with donald trump being president. what i do have a problem is bigotry having a platform and being normalized, they felt that this election did that. did you agree with that? explain that? >> i do. >> i think the president-elect offered that platform for people to speak that hitten truth that may have been inside him. i don't think he brainwashed everybody, like a lot of people are saying. i think if you believe that when
trump was speaking those hateful things, i think you always believed it, you know? i think that other people voted for trump, not because of those reasons. i think that they voted for him because they're hurting and they wanted a change, i get that, but i think there's going to be a day of reckoning when they're going to wake up and say, oh, my goodness, this man is not the man for us. >> you came from new york? >> i came from abject poverty. >> that's what i wanted to ask you. >> do you consider yourself an elite? >> no. i consider myself a person that worked really hard for a wonderful life that i have now. i'm a person that was a ward of the state, a part of the foster care system that didn't -- i didn't even have proper shoes to go to school. i used to go to school with holes in my shoes. and policy was so important to me as a child. i even understood that when i was a young person. >> how do you feel then when people who may live in the
middle of the country, there's nothing wrong with that -- oh, there's another elite actress on television, telling me how i should live my life or who i should vote for? >> i'm not telling you how to live your life, i'm not telling you who to vote for. this is what i believe in and i have a right to speak up. i will fight for every person out there that believes in the same things that i believe in. >> and what i believe in is fairness and the american dream. and the right to speak your mind. this is what i believe in. let me tell you something, when i was in the system, meaning being a ward of the state. every time there was a policy change it affected me directly. i understand politics, it hits closer to home. i want to tell those people, i know what it is to be hungry, to be abused. i know what it is to be ignored, thought you are sub par, less than. i was that person. what did i do? i buckled down, and i worked really hard and i made it.
and i am the embodiment of what an american is. and that's what i'm fighting for, and that's why i say, you know, i have a right -- i don't want you to think i'm an elite. yes, i have a fabulous life. yes, i have a big fat house in brooklyn, but i worked hard for it, and i still work hard for it. >> stand up for us psa, rosie perez. thank you so much. >> tomorrow is very important, make those calls to your elected officials, hold those people accountable. make the vetting process as hard as possible so we get the right people in office. >> thank you. up next, back to the future, when donald trump becomes president. will there be a return to the kind of protests this country saw in the 1960s? we'll discuss that. 1930's cop,
i want that role now. when i crave a turkey sandwich, i want to eat it now. [woman] john, i got your sandwich.

simone sanders, kevin madden and selena zeto. jeffrey, you want to tell the audience what your first name is? >> frank. >> his first name is nelville. >> that's such an elite name. >> i've never seen it anywhere other than in my family. >> meryl streep's speech at the golden globes, reminded me of the protests in the 1960s and '70s, when the black athletes raised their fists at the podium. or marlon brandon sent an activist to reject his award for the godfather. do you think we're going to see a protest -- >> i don't want to ruin your ratings, but. ♪ all i am saying is give peace
a chance ♪ >> i have seen this in my lifetime repeatedly. civil rights, vietnam, i was there, and protested once myself. i kind of get that, this just became, if your left thumb's finger nail is out of joint, let's have a protest. after a while, it's lost its -- it's not only lost its value, although i believe american citizens should have the right totally to do it, i do think it helps the opposition, i think something like this in the day, this helped richard nixon a lot. it helped ronald reagan when they had all those nuclear freeze demonstrations out there. a million people in new york city. you won re-election a couple years later. i would encourage these people by all means, please go do it. >> we have three other people on our panel. >> were you surprised by meryl streep's speech. do you agree with jeffrey that it doesn't mean anything any
more? >> no, i think protests are still relevant. i wasn't surprised. i think it's an artist's duty to reflect the times. we've seen actors and activists and athletes over the years to use their platforms to protest, what i think is happening now is, we have to remember, look, 56 million people voted for donald trump. hillary clinton did get 3 million more votes than that. i nowak tresses and actors, the running joke now in some circles is look, we're not all jesse williams, we can't all unabashedly put it out there. we're going to see more people take on donald trump directly. meryl streep has had had a streak. she can take him on p.m. we'll see people engage in protests. not necessarily directly against the president-elect in terms of our artists. >> kellyanne conway had issue --
>> why do you not believe him. >> 62% of americans said hillary clinton can't tell the truth about anything. and yet -- >> who was right behind her in that analysis. >> she is given the benefit of the doubt here constantly. >> when? >> you can't give him the benefit of the doubt on this, and he's telling you what was in his heart about. >> i don't understand the hillary clinton reference, hillary clinton is irrelevant now. >> right. >> does trump deserve the benefit of the doubt? >> i think that's what's extraordinary about being elected president, your words matter, your actions matter there. these are reflective of the leader of the nation. so they do matter. but i think have you to put in context, kellyanne conway is engaged in political combat. she's a defender of her
principal with passion, with prejudice, that's just her job. which is to do that, and to explain the president-elect's position. so -- but, to another point. this is something that we've always been used to, people like meryl streep, take it upon themselves to seize the platform and make their views known. outside of so many other people who are sort of rooting partisans in this, the question i'd ask is, does it have a bigger impact on the people that are going about their daily lives. i think they become more aware of these issues, i don't think it serves as -- it has a real catalytic effect one way or the other. >> i'm sure you saw meghan mccain's tweet, this sort of speech is why trump one. if you don't start realize iingw
how he will get re-elected. do you agree with the sentiment of her tweet? >> the sentiment of her tweet reflects a lot of how people feel sort of outside of the -- outside of new york, outside of washington, outside of hollywood, this -- this kind of speech from hollywood has been going on since the '60s, i grew up in the '60s and '70s. everyone had like -- you know, each year of the oscars, there was -- you know, some sort of new protest about -- this has always been happening. having said that, it has escalated. and we saw this year that people finally said, that's it many we're sort of done with everybody looking down at us. and we're just tired of it, and part of the vote for donald trump was a protest against the elite. it wasn't -- all of it wasn't for him. the votes that he received weren't for him, but it was a push back against sort of on the
culture wars, and how people feel about how they are looked at by the hollywood -- or washington or new york, whatever it may be. >> can you make that argument, 3 million more people, he didn't win the popular vote, does it mean the bulk of the country actually agreed with that? >> how many more million people just didn't vote. i would say we're split pretty much 50/50. and half of america is going to feel that this is something about them. even though it wasn't directed at them, it's directed at the person they voted for. and they're going to look at it and see it that way. >> it's where those votes came as well, selena? >> right. >> exactly. >> margins in cities, in rural places like western pennsylvania, a lot of those folks, this was -- there was a bit of a backlash on this. >> i have to get to a break. on the other side, i promise you'll weigh-in, we'll be right back. the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose.
the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. i need to promote my new busi can make that happen.et. business cards? business cards, brochures, banners... pens? pens, magnets, luggage tags, bumper stickers. how about foam fingers? like these? now, get 15% off making your company stand out. staples. make more happen.

finish your point. >> we talked about hillary clinton, absolutely, it's a powerful point that the democrats made that she won 3 million more voters than trump, but a lot of that was from margins that were run up in the city. in places, 200 counties across the midwest, places where salina spent a lot of time driving across in the election. counties that went for obama went for trump this time. a lot of it was this pushback, a lot of people in washington, new york, l.a. weren't speaking for a lot of these folks. >> yeah, you. >> i think it was two nights before the election. hillary clinton was at a concert in cleveland with jay z and beyonce. it was a massive deal. the following night, the night before the election, she held this mammoth rally with jon bon
jovi, bruce springsteen, the next day she lost both ohio and pennsylvania. you know, when i was watching those rallies, i thought, this is exactly the wrong message you need to be sending, and i think that turned out to be accurate. >> selena, go ahead. >> i was at both of these events, and you know, everyone was there, and enjoying the music and the concert, but the types of voters -- the types of voters they needed to show up were not there. they were there for the entertainment. you have to look at appalachia. it's a designated region that runs from new york to texas, 491 counties in there, clinton only won 21 of those. that is -- her husband almost carried all of them. that's that disconnect that i'm talking about in terms of how people viewed that video or that speech by meryl streep.
those are the people that are like -- >> is that hillary clinton or the democratic. >> well, no, i mean, i'm talking about -- i guess what i'm talking about is that feeling that hollywood, you know, those people voted against democrats, and they were also voting against elitism. so as i was telling you before, people did -- all people that voted for trump didn't vote for him. a lot of that vote was against elitism. and a lot -- that feeling that you know, you hear about after that speech, comes from areas like that. >> selena -- i'm sorry, simone? >> we have to note that we know from interviews with folks from the clinton campaign, people in places like appalachia or the midwest where i'm from, places like nebraska, the clinton campaign did not invest in the same way in those places that the obama campaign invested. some of those counties went for obama. but some didn't -- >> how does this relate to meryl stre
streep? >> i really don't think that people are necessarily rejecting folks like the hollywood elite, if you will, i think people don't like people talking down to them. and one could argue that some folks out there feel as though people are talking down to them, instead of talking with them and having a conversation, and having a dialogue, which is why i noted we'll see a lot more folks speaking out about specific issues and not necessarily against the president-elect. >> i just remember being in school and thinking my teacher was talking down to me, and my parents saying, they know more than you. it's that simple. selena, this is very important, another trump appointment raises questions. this is about monica crowley, up for a senior communications post. crowley has a plagiarism problem, the team found more than 50 examples of plagiarism word for word in a book she wrote in 2012. the trump team is standing by
crowley, why stand by a communications official with such a serious communications problem. >> as a journalist and reporter, i have a big problem with plagiarism. you know, that's a big deal. >> stealing someone's art, someone's work, someone's reporting, someone's investigating and putting your name to it, i mean, that's incredibly dishonest. and that then goes to character. and that's something that they should probably review. >> kevin, now, this is another one, politico reports that crowley plagiarized parts of her ph.d. diser dags from colombia. previously, any attempt to discredit monica, is nothing more than a politically motivated attack that seeks to distract from the real issues facing this country. can they continue to defend her? >> i think they will. this is a campaign that fights
very hard, and what they see are political attacks from opponents, in this particular case, it's going to become increasingly difficult. i haven't read the entire report on the ph.d. thesis. we have seen instances of the plagiarism that was cited on previous reports. these are wholesale lifts of paragraph ap paragraph after paragraph, and not cited properly. no citations whatsoever, i don't even think one book bibliography. there's a mountain of evidence here that they're going to have to fight against. >> don. >> quickly, i have to go. >> when i was a young white house aide, i personally outed joe biden for plagiarizing kennedy. i don't think there's anything there, even though plagiarism is never good. >> even though one is an elected position, and the other season
the? >> the one that's elected is more important, don't you think? >> i'm just asking the question. >> yes, the elected -- >> was it bad then when you cited it? >> yeah, it made the front page of the new york types. >> and you criticized it? >> it no, no, no, i'm just s -- let's do -- >> okay, so jeffrey says that and that -- he says he has a simple mind, so he is a simple-minded man. there you go, that's what you get when you watch cnn. thank you. wshz ♪ for millions of baby boomers there's a virus out there. a virus that's serious, like hiv,
but it hasn't been talked about much. a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured. be sure to ask your doctor to get tested for hep c. for us it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.
