tv CNN Tonight With Don Lemon CNN January 19, 2017 8:00pm-9:01pm PST
heavy, labored breathing heavy, labored breathing coughing breathing through oxygen mask breathing through oxygen mask breathing through oxygen mask breathing through oxygen mask covered california. it's more than just health care. it's life care. it is just a matter of 13 hours now, donald trump takes the oath of office to become the 45th president of the united states tomorrow at noon.
this is "cnn tonight," i'm don lemon in washington. thanks for joining us. history will be made when president-elect puts his hand on the lincoln bible, same one that obama used to take the oath. trump will also use bible given to him by his mother. then the inaugural address. but what will president trump do on day one and how will america change? get to jim acosta, been on the trail seems like forever for us now. at blair house where the president-elect is spending the night. fired up the crowd and gave a preview for tomorrow. let's take a look. >> tomorrow we have a speech, probably around 12:00, it may rain, it may not rain. i don't care. it doesn't matter. the truth is, if it really pours that's okay, because people will
realize that's my real hair and that's okay. >> so jim walk us through what happens tomorrow. trump gets sworn in as 45th president at noon. what happens next? >> reporter: depending on how much it rains may see the red make america great hat again tomorrow on the steps of the capitol, would be unprecedented for inaugurations. donald trump right now don i should mention, he has arrived at blair house across the street from the white house where he and new first family are spending the night and waking up in the morning to be 45th president of the united states. he'll be sworn in and give speech. we're told it's written and done. he worked on with his main speech writer. stephen miller. kellyanne conway, top adviser to the president was telling reporters earlier this is a
beautif beautifully written speech and donald trump will be speaking from the heart tomorrow. from what we understand from talking to aides going to be thematic, not a laundry list of proposals like state of the union, but hear some ideas, early workings of the administration. infrastructure and manufacturing and trying to build up the middle class in the country. hear some of that but largely thematic and according to sean spicer donald trump will be downright quote, philosophical. hear that tomorrow. do a big parade. i was on the front of the flat bed truck in front of barack obama four years ago when he did the drive down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. it's going to be amazing moment to see donald trump and melania
trump make that drive and probably get out and shake some hands and then watch old-fashioned parade make its way through the capital, reminds people that this transition of power has almost folksy norman rockwell appeal to it. and will tomorrow. after that when the balls are over, talked to aides earlier today, getting right down to business. from reince priebus on down, it's a working weekend. going to hear donald trump get into probably a weekly address on saturday, then going to see perhaps fairly significant executive actions over this weekend. i think it's going to be an action-packed weekend. not just a weekend of rest and recover from the inauguration. every indication we're getting,
going right to work. >> i heard andy card, former chief of staff on earlier saying there's no rest. once you're sworn in, you are the president and got to get right to work. by the way, i remember you on the flat bed. i was on the side lines last time and we were live at the same time. but anyway i digress. thank you sir. bring in douglas brinkley, kirsten powers, mark preston, emily jane fox and david gergen. good evening. thanks for joining me again. more of what the president-elect said earlier tonight. >> we all knew the last month of the campaign, i think a lot of us knew the first week of the campaign. but that last month of the campaign, we knew that something special was happening.
and i can only tell you this, the polls started going up, up, up but they didn't want to give us credit because they forgot about a lot of us. on the campaign i called it the forgotten man add the forgotten woman. well you're not forgotten anymore, that i can tell you. >> okay so listen, the guy is going to be inaugurated tomorrow so cut him some slack. everyone is happy for him but how many times have you heard that speech. >> not going to give slack. >> i -- the thing is, whether it's appropriate. okay he won. many people didn't think he would and he won. is this appropriate moment for that speech? >> no, no. its not appropriate. bottom line is you can be a sore winner and he has become one.
fact of the matter is he didn't win the popular vote but swron the electoral and will be sworn in and be president for at least the next four years, one of the most powerful people in the world, why is he lit gagt a campaign he already won? doesn't make sense. >> he's doing it because there are people not bowing down to him. he wants to win over people he hasn't won over. >> that's not how you do it. >> i'm not saying this is the way. but thinks the motivation. i don't think it works but it shows he's bothered by the fact that he has his base, he knows he has it, but he thinks just going to keep saying this over and over and over and suddenly everyone will go you're right. >> and so many democratic congressmen not showing up in protest. >> you think it's getting to him? >> john lewis controversy got to him. >> hundreds of thousands of
people coming here to protest, moms coming on busses to washington to say you're misogynist. still has the wounds from the campaign, thought would heal in the florida sunshine but back in january and still not healed. >> what would you have the man do? >> i hear him talk about the forgotten man, on the one hand speaking to people who turned out to get him in office this time. to a certain degree democrats didn't campaign to them. on the other hand sounds like populist not conservative. he needs to be a little more optimistic and about the broad themes of america or else he risks sending wrong message to the republican majority and the electorate. >> david gergen i hear you and thank you, people who voted for me. those of you who didn't vote for
me, i am your president as well and we're going to start from here with a presidency for all the country. it was a tough election but that's the rear-view mirror. let's look forward now. >> good speech. short and you wrote it yourself. >> just came up it with top of my head. >> i don't think he yet figured out how to be thematic and also to have these policies sit within a theme and then act out that narrative. there's a disconnect between having a cabinet with a bunch of billionaires saying you're going to look after the working people and haven't produced policies yet other than going after carrier and thing like that, to make a difference in their lives. he's got to figure that out. there's consistency between
themes and policies and what he believes that he's going to express in his inaugural address, his vision for america. once he gets there and keeps his eye on the economic side, on jobs, i think he can recover. it's not out of the question. >> do you think he realizes -- i ha hate to say president of the world but leader in the free world. whole world is watching, not just people who voted for him. >> stark differences between inaugural address tomorrow and those in recent past, kennedy's address so well remembered was about america's leadership in the world and i think this is will be a speech about turning our book on the world, coming home, be very nationalistic. >> and we often pay attention to the families of the president-elect and president. don't report on the children but pay attention to the role the families play, especially the
first lady. he thanked his family, son-in-law jared kushner. play this first. >> in the audience we have a specialern wi person who worked hard, who married very well. my daughter ivanka. where is she? i sort of stole her husband. he is so great. if you can't produce peace in the middle east, nobody can. okay? all my life i've been hearing that's the toughest deal in the world to make and i've seen it, but i have a feeling that jared is going to do a great job. i have a feeling he's going to do a great job. so you'll work with them. >> if nobody -- if jared can't produce peace in the middle east, nobody can.
no shade to jared but that is a lot of pressure on 36 years old. no government experience. >> never held office, ran for dog catcher. he's a man who inherted father's real estate business in new york and arguably been successful in that. donald trump has put the weight of the world on his shoulders. but donald trump cares about the his own win column mostly. he's happy to have him in the west wing with him and beloved daughter with him. he values family loyalty and good he thinks much of his son-in-law but setting him up for failure. >> his views in collision. wants to solve the middle east but also move the capital to jerusalem. if you do that as american you destroy the chance for middle east peace.
can't have it both ways. jared, nobody. >> douglas? >> i think he should employ ivanka to be the twitter tsar. he makes a deal anytime he's about to send out a tweet she gets to screen it briefly and will have to let 99% of them go, even the wacky ones, but i worry about that behavior on national security fronts with north korea brewing as possible problem. hoping that some family member, ivanka say dad this one you can't send. >> or do what mentor told me, write it, don't send it. >> put in envelope. >> we're going to talk about president barack obama's final message to the american people. ♪

american people, published final thank you letter to the american people. here's what he said. i've learned from you. you made me a better president and you made me a better man. then he ends with this -- when the arc of progress seems slow, remember america is not the project of any one person, single most powerful word in your democracy is we. we the people, we shall overcome, yes we can. ending presidency with the same optimism he began with. do you think he's bitterly disappointed. he says he's not. >> i think he was bitterly disappointed for a few days after the election but quickly realized he had a key role to play to heal the country that was so divided and reached olive branch handout to democrat, that brought a lot of democrats to calming down a little bit. there was panic after the election but since then barack
obama seems to be recognizing himself like martin luther king or ma hatma gandhi or nelson mandela, sees himself as global healer and keeps us calm to carry on. history will give him a high mark for way he's navigated this transition, putting up final executive orders where he could and keeping his legacy intact but owe a lot to the classy way that obama has been able to work with donald trump under difficult circumstances. >> history will be kind to him. >> you can't be effective as president of the united states if you don't have the idea we'll be okay. david said presidents see themselves on continuum with past and future presidents and care taker of the role for a
time. i think that's why seeing this this way. >> talking about the peaceful transfer of power, it's important to note. in gambia had elected president who had to take the oath of office in neighboring country. president who lost is refusing to leave and seeing troops from another west african nations amassing on the border about to invade gambia and take out president who refused to leave office. tomorrow whether you like or don't like donald trump, still be behind us. see democrats and republicans and he'll take the oath of office and will be peaceful. >> barack obama gave remarkable interview in the last few days about the reading habits. books he's been reading as president. i can't remember any president since teddy roosevelt who read as voraciously as barack obama
did the white house. said to keep him anchored. read just about every night and i think from that he became more philosophical about progress. that he came to understand that man has great capacity for good but also great capacity for evil. as president you try to move what you can, can't change human nature and embraced that with spirit of optimism and wants to leave to the country this notion. it was nice quote wasn't it? yes we can, we shall overcome. pairing those up. >> kerouac said walking on water wasn't made in a day. he's leaving recognizing it is a chapter. affordable care act get beat up
but still move through the decades and be a major accomplishment. >> nobody is perfect. barack obama was not. but the dignity in which you carry yourself in the office. ronald reagan, george h.w. bush, none of them perfect but there's a dignity they carried with themselves in office. and the difference between now and 2009, think we're waxing poetic about barack obama on the way out. 2009 night before inauguration attended a bipartisan dinner for john mccain and called him american hero and patriot. don't see that happening tonight with the president-elect. >> you have to remember there were a lot of ups and downs with president obama and we're focusing on a lot of the positives i think because he's leaving and the contrast with
trump and approval started going up a lot in the election because people looking even at hillary clinton and options they have, hang on, maybe not so bad with barack obama. but he also has a fundamentally good temperament, a calm person. been criticized for it but bore fruit in this situation. way he thought it through, realized when it happened and behaved in a way, lot of us wondered could i be so gracious to someone who treated me so badly. >> donald trump said he hoped to meet many more times about president obama and maybe get counsel from him. do you think it will happen and if so, what can he learn? going to leave a note, write a letter. >> be interesting to see that when it becomes public. i think donald trump can take a
lesson from president obama in his conservative demeanor, whether people think his policies liberal or conservative, he's conservative temperamentally, and when you see them meet, you saw that redpler reflected in the way trump was looking back at him, but for trump it wears off in the days that go by between the chats. president trump can be self in certain things but his demeanor. >> they're yelling at me but ivanka with -- >> he's 70 years old and billionaire, you don't have to like who they are but you have to accept it. >> thank you all. coming back, it's obamas's last night in the white house. clearing the walls for the new occupants, what will the defining images of president
trump's white house look like? i'll ask a white house photographer. they limit where you can earn bonus cash back to a few places... ...and those places keep changing every few months. the quicksilver card from capital one doesn't do any of that. with quicksilver you earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. leave complicated behind. what's in your wallet? these numbers are off the charts...this? sir! what's the status? there's a meteor hurtling towards earth. how long until impact? less than a minute. what do you want to do, sir? listen carefully... if we all switch to geico we could save 15% or more on car insurance. i like the sound of that. geico.

so you should pay attention to this. there's the white house. obamas' last night. tomorrow donald trump, his family will occupy that building, 1600 pennsylvania avenue. going to have a discussion to get away from the politics and take you behind-the-scenes, some white house positions unfilled, including the white house photographer. discuss with david hume, currently white house photographer for president gerald ford. fascinating. donald trump is going to begin presidency with no official white house photographer but you say i will have one? >> i don't have in there but understanding that somebody will be doing that job, not a carryover from pete souza.
12:01 he hits -- >> you sure have a photographer, not iphone photos? >> i hope so. >> you were the third official frae photographer of the you took this of gerald ford. historic moment. what was happening? >> he was ending the war in vietnam. one of the things about this photo that is compelling, nobody is saying anything and under a portrait of teddy roosevelt in the roosevelt room and key moment in the vietnam war, nsc staff. but what is important is it was taken and i had the clearance and trust of the president to be there for history. it's vital. >> i want to go through a lot of these and ask you what it's like. you're there almost every moment
except when they're alone. >> sometimes then too. >> you said pete souza is the official obama administration photographer. >> for a short time. >> first social media photographer. this is president obama and he's with a little boy here. for a lot of african-americans, people of color, this is one of the most significant pictures of his presidency. >> i love it. >> what does it say to you? >> there's a young man who sees in the president someone like himself. fact pete was there to get that moment is why you have photographer. it's about the history, not the pr. >> i have one in my office, him on the rosa parks bus. >> that's good one. >> and another standing in the portico of the white house, see his shadow beautiful. >> you need some kennerly
photos. >> i'll take some. let's talk about another one. president obama in the situation room with security team may of 2011. i remember this. i was on the air that night tracking the operation against osama bin laden. why is it so powerful? >> where the rubber hits the road with history, having a photographer cleared to be there, really good documentary guy. pete knows a story when he sees it. great story when they got bin-laden and picture to show it. >> peaceful transition of power we're going to see tomorrow. this one you witnessed. gerald ford with jimmy carter en route to the inauguration, what was the mood? >> i mounted camera in the car and gave the secret service guy
riding shotgun a cable. said take a few shots. when jimmy carter saw this picture, mentioned it was fairly uncomfortable. he had beaten president ford, that was minutes before the president will be sworn in. that same scene will happen tomorrow but with president obama who didn't lose the election to donald trump but they will ride together up to the capitol for the swearing in? >> in 2009, george w. handled with class when saw both men going up to the capitol. unfortunately george h.w. bush will miss the inauguration because he and his wife hospitalized. 41 and 43 together. where was it taken? >> rainy inaugural parade
reviewing stand. this to me, it's not a great photo per se but really does show the relationship between a proud dad and his kid became president of the united statesme statesment. only time that happened before was john quincy adams but that was before photographs. >> i remember this one, i thought it was amazing. you took it. pfeiffer living presidents together. george h.w. bush, ronald reagan, jimmy cart, gerald ford and richard nixon and also one with obama and clinton in it. >> oval office. >> did they get along? >> first time five presidents stood together on the turf. tomorrow first time had six
alive even if george bush senior won't be there. going back to nixon. i worked for ford. ford lost to carter, carter to reagan and george bush was reagan's vp. at reagan library. it's mt. rushmore moment. that's what i live for, take photos of real live history. >> i'll take that one. >> i'll send you a bill. >> the guys that have won or lost elections appear to handle it bette than many of their supporters or the people against them, which is interesting. they have to. >> i don't know if they have to but they do. president ford was incredibly gracious loser, and it was painful. i mean there were tears all around.
and -- but -- >> what is it like being with them all the time, being in the white house and just witnessing history that close? >> i think for me and the fords, president ford was such a great example for me. he was a man who believed in living and let live, and disagreeing with without being disagreeable. he was the most wonderful person. i was over in the u.s. capital today, took a picture of the statue in the rotunda where he had served in congress since 1948. such a great tribute to such a great man. >> thank you. beautiful photographs. >> thank you. you'll get a shot. five presidents. >> thank you very much. straight ahead, donald trump telling the crowd at lincoln memorial he's going to unify the country as president. can he keep that promise? america's beverage companies have come together to

absolutely scottsdale. welcome back. live from washington. donald trump on the eve of becoming the 45th president of the united states. let's discuss now. cnn political commentators, andre bower, jeffrey lord, andy dean and bakari sellers. this is the panel everybody is looking for. congratulations big night for your guy, tomorrow he becomes most powerful person in the world. here's what he said at inaugural concert earlier tonight. >> we're going to unify our
country. you all know it, half of you are wearing the hat. make america great again. but we're going to make america great for all of our people. everybody. everybody throughout our country. that includes the inner cities, that includes everybody. >> so andy, burning question, if it rains will we see the make america hat make a comeback. >> like umbrella? anything to expand the product line. >> do you think he has surprises in store? >> i think the speech will be shorter than a lot of people are imagining. i think that's important focus and donald gets it's work time. not going to be flowery language. unifying but not as politically correct as --
>> who do you think is expecting a politically correct speech from donald trump? >> i still think the reaction will be it's not as unifying as it should be. everybody hold hands, that one sentence donald is going to go his own way and donald the dictator. that will be the reaction but american people will see through that. donald they elected is the one we'll see tomorrow. >> i've found stories he's looking at two addresses specifically. ronald reagan and john f. kennedy, my two favorite inaugural presidents. >> shocking. well jfk a little bit. >> both of those when you look at them are about challenges of america's position in the world, challenging american people to higher goal or higher plane and
unifying. and call for american greatness. that's typical trump. >> i don't necessarily agree with what you said, i think unifying speech is what people want. >> but the bar is this high, it is low. easy i to jump over it. talk about unity and -- but the issue though is i'm expecting he's going to give a good speech tomorrow. at least say the right things. but what's he going to tweet the next day? undermine everything he said the day before? i'm where anna is, can't expect this guy to change. this country will have to learn to live with him as he is and expect he's a divider with his own agenda and hopefully the things he wants to get done end up being good for the country and not bad. but i don't think we can expect him to change. >> he won the election though --
>> rise to the occasion here. >> people knew what goods they were buying and selected him. >> this is why, because he squandered last 2 1/2 months as opportunity to bring the country together. he's going into this -- >> according to who? i disagree? >> going in as least popular new president. >>ard -- according to polls that have been. >> the polls were right. >> let him explain. >> polls going into the election said hillary clinton would win the popular vote by so many points and she did. but that's neither here nor there. tomorrow is awesome opportunity for donald trump because as douglas brinkley said earlier, these inaugural addresses are conversations between presidents across generations and i don't think it's fair to compare donald trump to john f. kennedy or ronald reaganor barack obama.
he's donald trump and doesn't have the orer toial ability. but if he takes the step of acknowledgment maybe first and then goes somewhere we haven't seen, empathy second. i don't know if he carries that trait. >> humility? >> maybe that's too deep. but empathy and struggles this many people -- never done that before. >> fresh start? >> absolutely. i think will be unifying, when he puts his hand on that bible and says so help me god, see a change. weight of the world on this guy's shoulder. i had the honor of being -- weight of the world on his shoulders. will have amazing day tomorrow and hope the country comes together for a day to say thank
you, appreciate you rung. monday will be a different day but he realizes this is his opportunity. donald trump cares about results. he wanted to win this election -- >> i understand that but i think you have it wrong. when you have people who leave their home goes to a polling place, rain, sleet, snow or shine, go to your rallies, it's up to you to thank them and have that weight on your shoulder, not up to them to come to you, you must reach out to them. and even especially to the people who didn't vote for you. you are the president of the united states of america, not just of the people who voted for you. >> he's demonstrated that the last month. >> i don't think so he has. >> he sat down with al gore. >> here's the good news. only have to wait about 24, 36 hours to figure out whether he's changed or not. if on sunday morning wake up and
he's tweeting "saturday night live" which is surely going to lampoon the hell out of him we know it's same donald trump. i give him points for consistency. i think we've learned to live with donald trump in the last 2 1/2 months, i'm getting numb to the crazy tweets. i think we have to learn how to live with each other. >> agree. >> entrenched in different camps right now and i've got to be happy and recognize that folks who supported trump are today celebrating and we're celebrating 240 years of democratic succession but they've got to admit that people protesting the next day have as much right. >> we'll be right back.
call or click today. has been a struggle. i considered all my options with my doctor, who recommended once-daily toujeo®. now i'm on the path to better blood sugar control. toujeo® is a long-acting insulin from the makers of lantus®. it releases slowly, providing consistent insulin levels for a full 24 hours, proven full 24-hour blood sugar control, and significant a1c reduction. and along with toujeo®, i'm eating better and moving more. toujeo® is a long-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. it contains 3 times as much insulin in 1 milliliter as standard insulin. don't use toujeo® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you're allergic to insulin. allergic reaction may occur and may be life threatening.
don't reuse needles or share insulin pens, even if the needle has been changed. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which can be serious and life threatening. it may cause shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. check your blood sugar levels daily while using toujeo®. injection site reactions may occur. don't change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. tell your doctor if you take other medicines and about all your medical conditions. insulins, including toujeo®, in combination with tzds (thiazolidinediones) may cause serious side effects like heart failure that can lead to death, even if you've never had heart failure before. don't dilute or mix toujeo® with other insulins or solutions as it may not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. toujeo® helps me stay on track with my blood sugar. ask your doctor about toujeo®.
fearless in speak up at every opportunity. what's your reaction? >> what civil rights backlash. i'm a conservative. look. we have all the civil rights laws on the books decades and decades ago. as a matter of fact we had to have a redo because they undid all the civil rights laws from the 1860s and 70s. what is he talking about? >> i think that there is a lot of historical inaccuracies and i can talk about how you are just rewriting history, but what he is talking about is a large group of people and he was talking about the point of getting out of the silos and understand the pain people are feeling in the streets. there is a fear that we will slide back into the era of the 1950s and 60s. where individuals because of the color of their skin whether or not they are hispanic or african-american are left out of
the process. one of the disappointments, she can speak to it better than i can. his cabinet picks. one african-american and no hispanic americans. we can't even get to diversity with donald trump. >> with diversity and the new segregation. >> i think the point that karim adbul jabbar is making, i don't know why we are argue being it. we have freedom of speech. one of the things that makes this country great is it doesn't need to be made great again. it is great. in this country criticizing a president, questioning his legitimacy like donald trump did with barack obama's citizenship for eight years does not land you in jail and get you black balled and harassed. it does not get you beat. in places like cuba, it does. we have got to remember that. >> first amendment rights. absolutely. >> you think people should protest the day after?
>> let me say this. from a political standpoint, that helps donald trump as in the day it helped ronald reagan and long before that. >> it's not a political opportunity. >> here's what he tweeted the day after barack obama was reelected. he said we can't let this happen. march on washington and stop this travesty. our nation is totally divided. >> can we just go to this bigger point which is that this trump's task tomorrow. that's to bring together the country in a way that allows people who are literally going to bed tonight afraid. feel better. you can talk about this as a civil rights agenda, but is he going to repeal the so-called daca rules that will send young latinos and immigrants back to their countries? will he appoint people to the supreme court that are going to
take away my rights as a lesbian or not enforce voting rights violations in the justice department. people are legitimately afraid. you can call that whatever you want. what donald trump needs to do is call us americans. he needs to work hard at that. >> when we come back, moments away from the beginning of inauguration day in washington. they are preparing for a moment that will make history. we will tell you what to watch for. 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.
it is midnight on the nose here in washington, d.c. it's inauguration day. this is cnn tonight and this is a day for the record books. a day donald trump takes the oath of office. 35 words that make him the president of the united states. that happens at noon. just about 12 hours from now. followed by the new president's inaugural address to the nation, a speech he said he wrote himself. then there is the parade and the inaugural balls and trump expected to dance the first dance to frank sinatra's my way. when it comes time for him to sit down, what will he do first? let's get right to davi
