tv New Day Sunday CNN October 1, 2017 3:00am-4:00am PDT
aaaaaaw look at that dog! katy perry: with music videos and behind the scenes footage, xfinity lets you witness all things me. this is cnn breaking news. breaking news this morning. o.j. simpson is a free man! he was released on parole from a nevada prison overnight after serving nine years for armed robbery and kidnapping. >> one of the first pictures we are getting here he is signing paper work to be released. it's kind of hard to recognize him there, isn't it? that was a few hours ago. here is the official video. they say he was upbeat as he walked out. we are learning more about why he was freed under cover in the dark while you were most likely sleeping and what is next for the former football legend?
we are following the devastation in puerto rico and president trump to visit the island later. o.j. simpson released from prison early this morning. the official nevada department of directions told simpson don't come back and he told them, quote, i don't intend to. >> simpson signed his paper work and he was picked up by a friend. joipg us with more on the raefs and where he is headed neck, cnn correspondent paul brickhammond. >> i'm here in las vegas and this is expected to be simpson's short-term destination. you have heard him talk about going to florida. the paper work has not been turned in yet. it was 12:08 pacific time that o.j. simpson left the correct n correctional center he had been serving nine years.
according to the authorities he completed his paper work and he woke out they said unceremoniously without incident or without any problem. the prison officials feared there might be great media interest that paparazzi might follow him so they wanted to do it in a secret manner. when the prison official said typically, don't come back now, he said, i don't intend to. that he was very light-hearted and upbeat and in the run-up to him walking out of the gate of the correctional center there was idle chitchat about travel and food and the like. also we should note that simpson's good friend, one of these people who is supposed to be driving him right now, has said when simpson gets to las vegas, he will live in a gated community and that he will probably lay low for a couple of days but that he is not going to
be a wreck loose and he is not going to hide. we expect simpson take a 400 miles and six hours plus from the correctional facility in northern nevada where he will live in las vegas and look down at the blinking lights of las vegas and what he'll call home the next few days and on. >> paul, thanks very much. o.j. simpson has avoided the media spotlight for now. >> for now. let's talk to cnn legal analyst joey jackson really about what is next. joey, we know that he is going to have to report to southern command and probation in las vegas. he is mandated to stay in las vegas for a certain -- or at least in nevada for a certain period of time, is he not? >> good morning. >> good morning. >> he is, indeed. what happens there is something called the interstate compact and we, of course, have heard
o.j. speak to the issue i want to go to florida, i want to go to florida. that is a process. we have seen the attorney general weigh in this weekend, that is the state attorney general in florida, saying you're not welcome here. but notwithstanding that, i think ultimately that is where he'll be. however, no for you he has restrictions and he has to be in nevada. if he wishes to travel at all he needs permission to do that. he can drink alcohol but not in excess and he has to stay away from known criminals and perhaps unknown because you want to avoid any type of police contact. as long as he follows the terms and provisions of his probation he can be fine. he can be in the spotlight but be careful because if you commit any type of offense you're being supervised and monitored and subject to coming back. we heard him say i don't intend to be back. >> no way i'm coming back. well, i intend not to be back.
i want to get to something else you were talking about regarding florida. we know his friend says he wants to play golf and be with his friend and family and his friends and family are in florida and florida's a.g. pam bondy wrote a letter to the florida department of corrections and she wrote this. is there anything the state can do to keep him out? >> very little that is. you can't keep people out because you don't like them, because you think they will commit violations or you think they are too high profile and you think they are guilty of that double murder that they got away with, those are not the standards. the standards are this is, as i read the law, and the rules, a mandatory transfer. what that means from transferring to one state to another sloas long as he has a planned for supervision and family support and we understand
his two children live there and they are they are welcoming to him and willing to provide support and he could provide support for himself, it's a mandatory transfer and the receiving state, florida would have to accept him. when that happens is the issue. you have 120 days, four months, after you are released to have that paper work filed and so we will see. but beyond the objecting, free country, free democracy, beyond objecting, it seems there will be little they can do by way of preventing him from moving to florida if he meets those criteria. >> smeeds she sahe said there i justification for asking the taxpayers of florida to foot the bill for hosting mr. simpson's parole, especially in light of the added dangers as relocation would pose for our citizens. goes back to the 1994 trial. do taxpayers pay for parolees?
>> sort of, they do. it's in regards monitoring them. of course, every state has a parole office and that parole office is responsible for the supervision and monitoring and to ensure that all parolees are in compliance with conditions. to that extent she is right. the taxpayers foot that bill but not supporting a person but that is more a political consideration which she has a right to do and a right to write three or four letters and see the state legislator and speak to the governor. as long as he has the family support there, he has a plan for supervision, he could support himself and he, otherwise, poses no threat or danger, you know, it would be something that would have to be approved, notwithstanding her firm objection as the chief law enforcement officer of that particular state. >> whether it does any good to keep him out of state is another thing but her objection is on the record. joey jackson, always good to see you. thank you, sir. >> a pleasure. the juice has been cut loose!
word of the morning! >> that is the way to start a saturday -- or sunday morning. thank you. >> you too. >> we will talk to a long time friend of o.j. simpson, dr. henry johnson will be here in a little bit and he visited simpson while he was in jail so he will shed light possibly on when the plans are from this point on. >> we will see. to the crisis in puerto rico. president trump says the federal response is going great. let's update with the latest numbers on the ground and things are not great at all. 95% of the people don't have power. only 50% have access to clean water and communication remains a problem with only 11% of cell phone towers said to be others. let's bring in our correspondent in puerto rico and good morning to you. what is the latest on the relief efforts today? >> martin, we is tell you that government says there is more than 11,000 federal staffers
here on the ground trying to bring all of those numbers up. i can tell you that the 100% are the efforts of search and rescue crews. these are the people that come in first after the storm and go in to trap buildings and assess million needs of certain areas. we followed one of these teams and one of theirs last missions to an area an hour and a half outside of san juan, really terribly hit area and we watched as they did their work. miriam cruz rode out hurricane maria from inside this bedroom. the storm's eye wall traveled through mountainous area, a city 90 minutes from san juan. it rose more than 20 feet. what was your thought looking out this window and seeing the river come up? >> i thought it was going to come up here but it didn't. >> reporter: the flooding caused landslides and knocked out this
bridge. the only way for cruz's community to get out. >> we afraid we would be left alone. >> reporter: but they weren't. right now, we are crossing a river with a pulley system constructed by a task force that is under the direction of peofe and these families have not seen relief until this was constructed. this group of specialized officers, firemen, and ems come from new york and indiana and ohio. in the past week, their teams across puerto rico have saved more than 800 people. this task took us to cruz's neighborhood. >> we received information from the local emergency management officials in these particular areas no way to get there and no comoun communication with them and can you help us and that is what we are here today. >> reporter: now residents are rationing this new shipment of supplies and they are grateful.
>> when i saw them come the first time, i saw heaven. >> finally we knew that they knew about our situation. >> reporter: with a broken bridge, food and supplies will be needed again and communications are still out. this man can't get in touch with his daughter, bringing him to tiers. what do you want to say to your daughter in texas? you're surviving? even without the help, we found this community doing all they can to stay alive. >> you see that line? that is how we got the water on this side. >> reporter: you did that yourself? >> no. the people here. not me but the men. you know? the men. >> reporter: if you didn't have that? >> we have no water. >> reporter: that despite president trump's recent criticism of puerto rico leaders and local response. >> of course, we get frustrated because we have done what we
can. >> reporter: as for the task force, this assignment is over and they are on to the next mission, continuing to help the people of puerto rico. >> thanks, guys. >> reporter: so that is the situation for many people still here on the island. they are on an island on an island. now the humanitarian effort still needs to continue. back to you. >> really good reporting. thank you, brynn. reminding the audience we are 11 days after this hurricane. no time for small politics what the mayor of puerto rico says after president trump attacked her on twitter and she didn't stop there. >> the president said in a tweet earlier this morning you had been nice to him early on but that democrats told you you have to be nasty toward him. >> you know, i don't know. maybe he is used to women who have to be told what to do.

this morning, we are getting new reaction from the mayor of san juan, puerto rico. president accused her of poor leadership, you'll remember, in the wake of two devastating hurricanes. that is after she made several emotional pleas for help saying people were dying in her city and that federal relief was bogged down in red tape. here is some of our anderson cooper speaking with the mayor. >> you woke up this morning to a tweet of the president of the united states. what did you say? >> i smiled. i smiled. i really have no time for small politics or for comments that really don't add to the situation here. >> reporter: he said that he talked about you, your leadership and he said they -- i don't know if he meant they, the leaders, or they, the people of puerto rico, want everything done for them. >> i believe -- you know, it was kind of funny because i got them real late because we don't have
internet. it's spotty, at best. but he did say that we wanted things to be done. you know, the truth is staring us in the face. just today, i was telling you we had to evacuate yet another hospital because the generator caught on fire. so this is in another hospital that we won't be able to work for another week. we transported 14 patients to one of our facilities. the damp in the eastern part of the island is two towns, for the first time that i know of in my lifetime on puerto rico, two towns are being completely evacuated. people are still coming and saying the mayor of san loren or the mayor of this city, this city, saying where is the help? we need it. please help us. >> reporter: do you feel your speaking out has been effective? >> i don't know. but if it has, you know, good.
>> reporter: the president also said in a tweet early in the morning that you had been nice to him early on but that democrats told you you have to be nasty toward him. >> you know, i don't know. maybe he is used to women who have to be told what to do. but, you know, that is not who we are here in san juan. but really -- >> reporter: have democrats said anything to you? >> no. >> reporter: about how you should treat -- >> actually, i am not a democrat. i share values with the democratic party in the united states, but i do not participate in the democratic party. so it's interesting. senator marco rubio sent representatives to here. so he's not a democrat. i just think he is looking for an excuse for things that are not going well. >> reporter: brock long, the fema administrator, has said today about you that there is a joint command and that is essential. there is a unified command and that there is a joined field
command office and that you should go by there to kind of get clued into what is really going on. >> well, yesterday, after my press conference, all of a sudden, things started coming in from fema. and when they give me my money, i can show you the text. i got a text saying that more supplies were coming. and all i want is more supplies. you know? >> reporter: you feel speaking out has actually pushed fema to bring more -- >> a lot of people, a lot of mayors are scared of speaking out because they think if they speak out, whatever help they haven't been getting will not get to them. >> cnn political commentator is with us. louis errol and julian zeleny are with us. we have katherine cortez masto
who tweeted the following. s we have senator ed markey in massachusetts saying the first thing trump should do on tuesday since he visits puerto rico since hurricane maria destroyed the island. how plausible is it, julian, that president trump will apologize? that is moment he meets with cruz that a lot of people are going to be watching very closely. >> well, it's not likely. this is not an apologizing president and we haven't seen many moments where he takes back what he says. i think this was yet another divisive weekend. we are here in this humanitarian crisis. he has decided to go after a mayor and make accusations about her partisanship and why things
are going and words that are seen by many characterizing puerto ricans in a particular way. he should walk it back, but i don't think he will. this is just not what we have seen so there is no reason to think that we will see it again. certainly the comments were damaging. >> errol, we know what we learned yesterday that melania will be the first lady, will be accompanying him on this trip as well. what do the it would hatwo of t do to make things right is in there. >> the question assumes that they want to make things right, so i'm not sure that that is true. the president really went out of his way. ebleg he could have said nothing or posted pictures showing his team at work. he could have left the whole thing alone. but he chose to sort of pick this fight with the mayor of san juan. he chose to make these disparaging remarks, even when they are at a moment of extreme
danger there with a dam risk of failure and hospitals closed and so on. i'm not sure he wants to. but assuming he wanted to, one thing i would do and i've wherein this on cnn.com every day he should say that residents of puerto rico are american citizens. a poll that most americans don't know that and to the extent people don't know it, they are wondering what the point of all of this activity is in the first place. so i think he should go out of his way to do that. then beyond that, look. there are some logistical bottlenecks there and all of the reporting needs to suggest on top of everything else, the lack of communication is making so much more intense and makes it harder to figure out when where the aid should go and when it should happen. if they can get some kind of communication system up, generators and cell towers, the president can make that happen, that would be a great thing. >> they could make it more fluid
and much smoother in terms of the way they are trying to recover there. listen. lieutenant general jeffrey buchanan talked with pbs after he took a tour of the island. listen to what he said. >> sometimes we don't know what is going to happen until the storm actually hits and this is the worst i've ever seen. i'm not a republican, i'm not a democrat. i'm not a member of the blue party or the green party. i'm a soldier. and i'm here to help people. the people here need help and we are going to give them all of the them they can get. the people of puerto rico are going to be very resilient and we need them to be resilient so that they can help rebuild this commonwealth and make it what it really should be. but there is going to be some parts where we are going to have to start from scratch. >> julian, do you think the president going there on tuesday and seeing things firsthand and possibly talking to the people there will change his mind based
on what we saw from him yesterday in his tweets about the severity of what is going other and what they are trying to do? >> well, it might. sometimes presidents actually seeing the effects of a crisis firsthand can have an impact on how they see this and it is relevant with president trump who is a visual president, whether he has seen something on tv or in person, it often can move him in terms of providing relief. again, i think i agree with errol. i think the comments were a political choice. i don't think he is going to take that back, nor does he regret them, but beneficial aspect of the trip he doubles down his effort to get relief there, to get power up, to have supplies coming in at a much more rapid pace. so we hope that is the effect. on the other hand, that short attention span, he can move on to another issue very quickly after. this is going to be months of
relief. not simply days. >> errol louis and julian zeleny, we always appreciate you sharing your input with us. thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. the question is did the president's tweets attack the san juan mayor, did they go too far? a former adviser to his campaign and a democratic strategist who is joining us next to talk about the president's response and this upcoming response to the island. "saturday night live" taking on the president's response to the devastation in puerto rico and the san juan mayor. >> i hear you loud and clear. we will get more help to you and get you immediately, probably by tuesday or wednesday at the latest. >> mr. president, that is not good enough. >> you should have paid your bills. fema takes a few days, unless you join fema prime! >> what are you talking about? kevin kevin kevin kevin kevin
kevin kevin kevin kevin trusted advice for life. kevin, how's your mom? life well planned. see what a raymond james financial advisor can do for you. if you have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis or crohn's, and your symptoms have left you with the same view, it may be time for a different perspective. if other treatments haven't worked well enough, ask your doctor about entyvio, the only biologic developed and approved just for uc and crohn's. entyvio works by focusing right in the gi-tract to help control damaging inflammation and is clinically proven to begin helping many patients achieve both symptom relief as well as remission. infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. entyvio may increase risk of infection, which can be serious. while not reported with entyvio, pml, a rare, serious brain infection caused by a virus may be possible.
good morning to you on a sunday at 6:30. it is early. i'm christi paul. >> i'm martin savidge in for victor blackwell. ojs is a free man. he was released from a nevada prison early in the morning after serving nine years with armed robbery. the mayor of san juan respond to go president trump's twitter tirade. he accused the mayor of poor leadership that is hurting the island's recovery efforts. the mayor told anderson cooper she is focused on saving lives and not time to focus on his attacks. president trump will be there in puerto rico on tuesday for the first time since the hurricane. >> maria is a democratic strategist who grew newspaper
puerto rico and jack was an adviser of the trump campaign. the san juan mayor has responded to president trump last night saying she doesn't have time for small politics. it's understandable. she is focused on the relief efforts and focused on the job. you were representing the georgia coast in congress during four hurricanes. would you want federal officials criticizing your relief efforts if they hadn't even yet visited? well, i think in terms of working together, just part of the responsibility of being an elected official is to be a little calmer, be a little more reserved in your comments. maria and i do agree that the tweeting back and forth and the snippiness has not been productive. i think, for example, the mayor should go to the field command office and talk to the fema people. apparently she has not had time to do that but she's had time to engage in this political back and forth, but i can say this. you need to talk to the people on the ground. you need to see it. i'm glad the president is going
there. he has not gone there earlier because they are doing search and rescue. they have had to do 2600 searches of buildings that they have -- >> jack, i got that but i was asking about your experience because you have been in this kind of leadership role in a time of crises here in georgia. so would you want the white house kriticriticizing you and telling you're a bad leader when you're literally trying to save people's lives? >> i certainly would not, martin. and i think that, you know, part of my role as the congressman was to talk to the mayors, talk to the fema people, talk to the folks on the ground and just keep my own thoughts to myself. but to keep moving on. i visited lots of evacuation centers during hurricane floyd, for example, and we were lucky we missed it, but we had a huge evacuation. and then the few weeks ago, we evacuated for irma and i talked to some of the mayors, even though i'm no longer in office. >> but if you felt you weren't getting enough help it would be
your responsibility to speak out on behalf of your people and what the mayor did. >> it would but i would go to the field office and make sure i did it and i would touch base with everybody i need to before i get on television and engage in that. when you have the congresswoman from puerto rico and the governor both praising the president as recently as yesterday, by the way, in a white house phone call, along with the governor of the virgin islands saying good things about the relief effort, yet, you know, whatever you feel about the president or whoever the elected official is you got to remember people on the ground are not elected official and like the general said i'm not a republican, i'm not a democrat. i'm here to find the solution. >> he also said it was the worst he had ever seen. maria, let me bring you in. you have a very personal connection to all of this. >> yes. >> i don't think is there a back and forth going on here. i think that the president made comments that were very critical of a mayor that is literally
trying to save her people and her community. >> that is exactly right, martin. the president's comments are nothing less than shameful and disgraceful and it underscores just how unfit he is to be president of the united states and the fact that his comments lack humanity and empathy and civility and sensitivity, though, that is par for the course for this president who believes in disparaging leaders, his massive, but fragile, ego is somehow insulted, which clearly it was. i guess he is not used to strong latino women speaking out for the people she is representing, and, you know, clearly this talking point of the mayor should go to the central office has become a republican talking point because they know that the criticism is real. she has been in touch daily with fema representatives. perhaps she didn't have time to
go to the central command office because she was waist deep in black flood water, actually trying to save the people of san juan and the 3.5 million american citizens who are gasping for their life who need results and who she is speaking out and since she has spoken how, there has been -- >> let me ask you this. the president is going there tuesday. widely known. what will be the reaction? and what should he say and do when he is there? >> he should actually try to act presidential for once in the nine months of his failure as a president of the united states. he should try to put his massive ego aside. he should try to look at the situation at hand and realize that people's lives are at stake. he should listen to the people on the ground who are living this day in and day out. and i understand the governor and the resident commissioner. of course, they are going to praise him. they don't want to fight the
hand that is supposed to feed them, but they also have said that things have not happened fast enough, that relief is not getting to the places where it's going. again, the president just, i don't know why he focused on picking on the mayor of san juan because maybe she is speaking out a little bit more forcefully because she got pissed off when the acting head of homeland security talked about what a good news story puerto rico was when people were dying! so, again, trump -- exactly -- >> a quick response from you. you're a person who advises the campaign. what would you suggest the president do and say when he goes? >> i'm glad he is going and i think what they want to do is as many things has worked well in florida and in texas and louisiana. they need to replicate that in puerto rico. they have reopened -- >> what does the president do specifically when he goes tuesday? >> i think sitting down with the elected officials, including the mayor, certainly the governor,
certainly the resident commissioner of puerto rico. listening to people and then talking to some of the refuges who have had to go to the evacuation center, i think is very, very important that he does that. he has done a great job in florida and in texas and i think he just needs to continue that. there are 11,800 federal employees there and 36 different agencies. >> we know the numbers. we got them. >> it's incredible the size of this disaster and the response is going to take months. one of the statements the white house made yesterday, we were there before the storm and we are there now and stay there until the job is finished. we are not satisfied we want to get it done. that was an official white house statement. >> the very least you expect to hear. i am out of time for the moment. thank you both. >> thank you. >> we may come back and talk more and be back later. thank you. spanish national riot police in the catalonia region are blocking residents from voting.
a controversial referendum supposed to be going on here. classes broke out in one of the northern cities earlier. police were preventing voters from entering at least one polling station. spain's highest court says the vote is illegal and unconstitutional and the government vowed to shut it down. but police then broke windows and padlocks. they were trying to get into that building. spain's interior minister tweeted that national police have seized ballot boxes from some polling stations. in the run-up to the vote they confiscated material and sent the national police to the region. the president of catalonia cast his vote and praised those lining up despite the spanish intervention. "saturday night live" is back. it's back with another season. they wasted no time going after president trump -- again. we will have all of the best highlights after the break. >> i'm begging you.

correspondent and host of "reliable sources" brian stelter joins us with more. another season' clearly going to be a tough one for the white house. >> "snl" hasn't been on for months and there is a lot that has happened since the show was on last may. but i think it was notable they turned around such a quick sketch about the mayor of san juan versus president trump. this just happened in the last 24, 36 hours. and "snl" wanted to be right on the top of the news. the show also weighed in on tom price's resignation. before we get to more alec baldwin playing trump, here is how the update handled that. >> health and human services secretary tom price was forced to resign after caught using millions of dollars of taxpayer money. that is cool but how about pay us back the money? you can't walk into a store and
do a million dollars worth of damage and then be like, okay, i get it. i'll leave! no, man, pay us! besides, you can make that million back when you publish your memoir. oh, the places you go in a federally funded private jet! >> no shortage of material for the "weekend update." i mentioned alec baldwin has come into his own as this trump impersonato impersonator. among other moments and in this kind of cold open, they talked about the other changes in the white house over the summer, all of the friday firings. here is that clip. >> mr. president, i'm so glad -- >> i like you, sarah. you're a straight-shooter and why you outlasted sean spicer and pebus and tom price and scaramucc scaramucci. >> thank you, shiir. i think it's because people
listen to me. i'm no nonsense but i'm all nonsense. >> you handled that nfl thing just great! >> oh, well, i'm a little embarrassed i said it's a black and white issue. i should have said it's a black versus white issue. >> disgraceful, you know? i actually love football. i could have played. people say i remind them of an nfl player because i'm combative and i like to win and my have a degenerative brain disease. >> bryant is playing sarah huckabee sanders and see a lot more of her in this season. sean spicy spicer now sort of been retired and there was a moment toward the end of the sketch where the trump character says i'm bending time, causing so much chaos. things you thought happened months ago, actually happened weeks ago. kind of playing up the idea of news overload in the trump administration. i suppose it makes the "snl" writers jobs difficult but also really, really interesting,
right? >> absolutely. and like you, i was struck by how quickly they turned it but in some cases, it kind of writes itself. >> they used some of trump's own words and then exaggerated just a little bit. >> brian stelter, thank you very much. he'll be back with you later today and we will be back after a quick break. stay close.
