3:00 am
we have got to address the elephant that is not in the room. the leader of our country is not here and that is because he lives in moscow. >> they are gathered together for the white house correspondents dinner without the president. >> the other guy, i think he's in pennsylvania because he can't take a joke. >> i could not possibly more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from washington. >> it is 2017 and we are living in the golden age of lying. donald trump is liar in chief. >> the washington media is part of the problem. >> somehow, you're the bad guys.
3:01 am
good morning to you on a sunday. we are always grateful to have you with us. i'm christi paul. >>ism victor blackwell. donald trump begins the next 100 days of his presidency but historically low approval ratings but you wouldn't know it from the huge welcome he got just 100 days into his presidency there in harrisburg, pennsylvania. >> usa. usa. >> cnn senior white house correspondent has more for us on what donald trump said. >> reporter: president trump delivering a rerun of his campaign from last year. in a speech on saturday evening in harrisburg, pennsylvania, president trump ran through a litany of grievances with familiar attacks on the media,
3:02 am
familiar attacks on the obama administration taking little responsibility for any of his own crises and chaos in the west wing his first 100 days but he was speaking in harrisburg, pennsylvania, to loyal supporters at the same time the annual white house correspondents dinner was going on back in washington. he made that clear from the very beginning of his speech. >> they are gathered together for the white house correspondents dinner without the president. and i could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from washington swa swamp, spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better
3:03 am
people. >> reporter: the president did not tell his supporters that he, in fact, has attended this dinner for years. and he will likely attend it next year, he says. he did turn to other issues as well, particularly on china. his language on china so different than during the campaign. and he explained exactly why he now says china may not be a surnt manipulator. >> i think it's not exactly the right time to call china currency manipulator right now. do we agree with that? >> reporter: the president also said that he would be deciding within the next two weeks whether to stay or withdraw from the paris climate agreement. of course, that april cohe is b advised different things inside his administration, the subject of heated discussion. he says he will make that decision in the next couple of weeks. now the president also clearly was soaking up the moment of the 100th day in office.
3:04 am
it was a familiar setting, a campaign rally type setting. the challenge from him going forward here is will he be able to expand to people who don't necessarily like what he has been doing? will he be able to get any legislative accomplishments? he did not talk about infrastructure, did not talk about tax reform. instead, during this speech, at least, president trump was largely looking backward. >> jeff, thanks so much. the president, obviously, feeling that campaign mojo. but cnn senior political analyst and former presidential adviser david gergen had a harsh critique of his speech last night. >> to bring your campaign speech into the presidency is something president rarely do. this was the most divisive speech i've ever heard from a sitting american president. others may disagree would bthat at the he played to his base and treated the other listeners. the other people disturbed about him or opposing him, he says, i don't give a damn what you think
3:05 am
because you're like the enemy with the press. i thought it was a deeply disturbing speech. >> let's bring in errol lewis and debbie lewis for the weekly standard. errol, divisiveness was that not the goal here to cast those who are in washington as the elites and president was with real american as it's been said that he wanted to create that divide? >> well, other politicians, i think, it's safe to say, victor, would have done it in a more subtle way. the talk over the weekend was a split screen of donald trump talking to supporters the washington elite on the other side of the screen sipping cocktails. the reality he went much further than that. he sort of demonized them as david gergen talked about. it is a little unusual to see a sitting president do that.
3:06 am
i think people have gotten a little shell-shocked the last hundred days but the reality that is not normal for a president to go out there and to attack in such a full-throated way. they were chanting lock her up at this rally as he smiled and sort of went along with it. you know? we are not only past the campaign, they want to relive some of the ugliest moments of it. >> kelly, i want to replay this tape to you from november 2016. apparently, we have one sound bite to play and we don't have that prepared to play. he said he wanted to be the president of the republicans, democrats, the independents. when does the president get to that? is there some shift? i'm sure we have asked for it almost two years now but he's now in the office. >> he started his speech actually in pennsylvania with
3:07 am
similar rhetoric. you know, he talked about how the blood of americans, it's the blood of patriots, it's not blue, it's not red. he did try to go that way. he has always tried to use that rhetoric since he has been elected but it is just rhetoric. that is the thing. he says it and then he moves on to campaign mode and you sort of wonder how sincere is he in reaching out to the people who are very disturbed by his first hundred days so far. i don't think he necessarily demonized those people in a speech. he did demonize the kra bmedia e didn't give them any reason not to worry as much as they have worried. and i try to think that his speech really kind of encapsulates the trump presidency so far. he is playing to his pace and what he has constantly been doing and why he demonizes the media because his base loves to hear that and why he didn't go to the white house
3:08 am
correspondents dinner because his base elect him because he destains the elite and a clever move on his part. less clever was giving a campaign rally speech. he has been in office a hundred days. did he talk about his accomplishments? no. he talked about why he hasn't gotten some of the things he promised to do in his contract with the american voter done. >> errol, one other element here that the white house has invited the president of the philippines rodrigo dutarte to the white house there. human rights say his government is killed and thousands of people in this ongoing war on drugs and that was back in december when the president said that or president dutarte said he had received a call of congratulations from president trump about his effort to rid the country of drugs. what do you make of this invitation? >> well, it was going to happen any way. just as a matter of
3:09 am
state-to-state relations, there was going to probably be some contact at some point. there is a disturbing undertone to what trump says or more importantly does not say when dealing with some of the dictators and strong men around the world and that includes north korea and turkey and russia, most of all. that he is not using -- he, the president, is not using one of the strongest cards that america has which is sort of a moral superiority when it come to the way that democracy rates compare to the way the strong men operate. the fact that they throw people in prison, the fact that they demonize the press, not just with words but with bullets at times. you know is in the fact that journalists' human rights activists turn up dead regularly. i think the world press will focus on the philippines and look at the atrocious horrible human rights record of that strong man and the cry and the question will come up once again will president trump say or do anything about it in his role as leader of the free world?
3:10 am
>> to that point a couple of days ago, president trump admiring king jong unadmiring the leadership of him and now an invitation to dutarte. to what degree is there a consideration of human rights violations in these countries when the president thinks about these countries and those leaders strategically and the personal interactions and relationships? >> it's an excellent question and it is a little disturbing. china current by manipulator i'm worried how china treats its own people and political prisoners. talk about turkey. trump called the president there and congratulated him on a victory and referendum almost every outside observer said was not a fair referendum. turkey jails more journalists than any other nation on earth. and to invite dutaerte challengd
3:11 am
his officers to duel he didn't think they were doing enough on the war on drugs. he has said if you do drugs, we are going to kill you. it is disturbing that trump is not only not speaking out against some of these abuses but in my mind almost encouraging them by showing, hey, i had a productive call with you, we have a really friendly relationship. how does that discourage the strong men around the world from treating their people better? and, you know, dictators do get things done. maybe why trump seems to have an affinity for them but it's certainly disturbing to anyone who cares about human rights. >> you add to that some of the comments that president duterte has made about president obama, the type of language in a barroom argument. we will see if that invitation actually comes to fruition and if duterte makes it to the white house. thank you both.
3:12 am
watch "state of the union" this morning with jake tapper. senator mccain is on the show and samantha bee talks about her not the correspondents dinner bash that "state of the union" with jake tapper at 9:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. tonight as we have been watching comedy and journalists and typically the president all collide, how the white house correspondents dinner unfolded without the star guest. >> historically the president usually performs at the correspondents dinner but i think i speak for all of us when with i say he has done far too much bombing this month. plus, thousands marched in protest to president trump's climate policies yesterday and children joined in on the action. some are even taking their movement to court. they are going to join us ahead. the death toll is rising this morning in part because of what you're seeing on your screen. that massive tornado. there was a line of tornadoes ripping through texas. we are going to talk with the storm chaser who caught this

3:17 am
the leader of our country is not here. and that is because he lives in moscow. it is a very long flight. it will be hard for vlad to make it. vlad can't make it on a saturday. it's a saturday! as for the other guy, i think he's in pennsylvania because he can't take a joke. >> well, he was not in the room. didn't spare press trump long distance. >> the first time the president
3:18 am
did not attend this dinner since 1971. host of "reliable sources" brian stelter and bill carter are here. brian, you're up early as a late night. you were there. how did it feel without the pre in t president in the room? >> i think the jokes were funny. a few made folks in the room squirm but how it usually is and maybe how it's supposed to be. hasan was careful not to be going too much at the president knowing the president wasn't there. had he a few jokes about the other side and a lot of jokes about the media as well. this is always a very hard gig but i think he pulled it off to the extent that any comedian can, especially with the president pointedly choosing not to be there. >> let's listen to more from minhaj here real quick. >> we are here to talk about the truth. it is 2017 and we are living in the golden age of lying.
3:19 am
now is the time to be a liar and donald trump is liar in chief. remember, you guys are public enemy number one. you are his biggest enemy. journalists, isis, normal like ties. and somehow you're the bad guys. >> now let's be fair. the president also got a bit of a roasting on the media, so to speak at his rally as well. talking about the failing "the new york times." bill, what do you make of the back and forth that happened last night and the fact he did not attend? >> well, i think he didn't attend because i don't think he likes being the target of criticism and the first pitch to washington nationals game, in my opinion. i think minaj did take him on pretty strong. some comments there calling him a liar in chief is pretty tough.
3:20 am
he basically called steve bannon a nazi. he said that jeff sessions' favorite "n" word was not no. there were some grenades but i think you have to throw them in this context. the president came out and did a whole speech and attacked the media again and we have the same kind of feeling about him picking on the media as his main enemy rather than, as you point out, sort of people around the world who might have done some pretty outrageous things. >> the room was, i don't want to say the void of a-listers. >> i would say that. >> you would say so? >> i would say so. >> one of the stars of veep. i love that show and put on him that lace. maybe not. there weren't many stars there. is that essentially a good thing moving forward? >> jawhat was missing was hollywood. there is jeffrey. what was missing is hollywood. you see a lot of a-listers fly
3:21 am
in and it was especially true during the obama years. you thought less true any way for any republican president given hollywood's liberal leanings. even more true this year because of who the president is and because the president chose not to attend. so there was sort of a lack of energy from hollywood but that is a good thing. you're absolutely right, victor. this event had gotten to be probably too over the top. a lot of agreement among journalists it was probably better to focus more on the basis about first amendment values and press freedoms. i think why hasan minaj was so effective. in what other country can a muslim get up at. this podium and make fun of the president of the united states and impose a muslim ban. there was a celebration of free speech and what the president was doing in pennsylvania. he was exercising his first amendment rights but only one of them was supposed to be a comedian. when the president calls "the new york times" failing that is like a laugh line for his audience but isn't a lot of truth to it.
3:22 am
>> since we are talking about roasting. bill, the president of the white house correspondents association jeff mason had some very pointed wards for the president, not so much a roasting, but they certainly seem like serious word. let's listen together here. >> we cannot ignore the rhetoric that has been impleed employed by the president about who we are and what we do. freedom of the press is a building block of our democracy, under mining that by seeking to delegitimatize journalists is dangerous to healthy republic. it is our job to report on facts and to hold leaders accountable. that is who we are. we are not fake news. we are not failing news organizations. and we are not the enemy of the
3:23 am
american people. >> you hear a lot of cheering there. bill, how much do you think maybe the people in that room needed to hear that last night? >> i think they have been hearing for a long time that they have a responsibility to actually step up more than they ever have before because they are being challenged like they never were before. an attempt to delegitimatize the press. i think a lot of people in that room called for bernstein to step up and do it. i agree with brian. best thing he said you guys are now a minority. how does it feel? you're being attacked like minorities are being attacked. i think it's a big challenge to the press to have to stand up to this press and feel like it's important for the country. >> brian stelter and bill carter, we appreciate both of you sharing your views with us today and taking the time. thank you so much. >> thanks. be sure to watch brian's show "reliable sources" today. his guests including carl bernstein who spoke at last
3:24 am
nice's correspondents' dinner. that is at 11:00 a.m. eastern on cnn. an active tornado, several warnings across parts of the southeast right now and part of the same system that produced that beast you're looking at right there, that tornado in texas. the death toll is rising. we are talking live with a storm chaser who caught this video. plus, an act of defias. near near fails in its missile launch but succeed in sending a clear message to the u.s. and its allies. how will president trump respond? sighs ] flo: [ amplified ] i got this. guys, i know being a first-time homeowner is scary, but you don't have to do this. man #2: what if a tree falls on our garage? woman: what if a tornado rips off our roof? flo: you're covered. and you've bundled your home and auto insurance, so you're saving a ton. come on. you don't want to start your new life in a dirty old truck. man #3: hey. man #1: whoa, whoa. flo: sorry. woman: oh. flo: you're safe. you're safe now. woman: i think i'm gonna pass out. can you stop using the bullhorn? flo: i don't make the rules.

3:27 am
3:28 am
holy cow. look at this thing. it's going to hit the power
3:29 am
lines. my god. >> imagine this thing coming in your direction and this is amazing. this is just one of several tornado that hit the state of texas yesterday leaving five people dead, dozens in hospitals. >> you can see it almost looks as though it is sucking up all of the cloud around it and that is how that vertex is growing bigger and bigger. officials warn the number of these tornado that we see could be coming this morning and that the numbers could grow as search and rescue efforts are under way this morning in term of the people who are found possibly injured. veteran storm chaser chris kolura is on the phone bus there and he shot the video of that tornado that you just saw. chris, thank you for being with us. and getting up early. help mend what it was like in
3:30 am
that moment when you saw that thing coming to you. >> well, the thing formed up the road after this, like, eerie fog in the air which is kind of interesting. and then up the road, there was the lowered cloud base and it touched down and across highway 19 and continued northeast and took out high tension power lines and continued up to the eastern side of canton, texas. >> as a storm chaser, i'm sure you've seen a lot of tornado. compare this one to what you've seen thus far. >> this one was one of the bigger ones. it will probably go up to the top five to ten chases. i'm saying top chases. this was to property damage. i would prefer to see this over an open field and not hit anything and it could have been larger if it took a hit on canton, texas. but this is like one of the bigger ones.
3:31 am
i've seen ones before like i've seen the joplin one which was kind of wrapped in rain and i've seen the battle one in 2010 in south dakota. this is up there with the real violent stuff. >> chris, how close do you let this thing get to you before you back away? >> this one got to within a half to three-quarters of a mile. at that point, i started to back away. >> do you feel something when you're there? the wind? is there rain? help us understand what that is like. >> it's kind of an indescribable feeling. your ears are popping and you feel the ground shaking like in the case yesterday. a little vibration in the ground. like a very cloud waterfall basically. kind of like if you're standing at niagara falls. about that same sound. it does sound like a train too. >> now what we are seeing now it looked as though we saw something light on popping in the middle of the tornado. would that have been the power lines that it hit?
3:32 am
>> yeah. i wasn't quite exactly looking directly at it at the point. i was making sure i was getting the shot. of course, looking behind me making sure there were no satellite tornado coming around the back side of it. then you got to watch out for the rfp which is the down drift which is 120-mile-an-hour wind gusts that you get coming in behind the tornado. fortunately that wasn't an issue so it was kind of like that nice little sweet spot between that and the tornado itself. we call that the bear's cage when you're in there. it's like you're graping with a bear inside the rain wrapped area of the super cell. >> it is a sight to see. it is, no doubt, a monster the way you can see those cloud just starting to wrap around the whole thing and seem to, as i said, just get sucked in everything that is around it. chris, we are glad you're okay, first and foremost, but thank you for sharing your experience here. again, we are watching this threat today because there is more severe weather expected. >> this threat is not over.
3:33 am
there is more weather that could produce these tornadoes expected today. cnn meteorologist allison chinchar is following this system for us. what are you seeing? >> it's still ongoing at this point. we are actually taking a look at the radar. look at this. for folks waking up from illinois stretching down to louisiana you are getting a light show. lots of lightning and heavy rain. the threat for severe thunderstorms and tornado does still exist. we have a tornado watch in effect until 10:00 a.m. eastern time this morning. 9:00 a.m. central time local. that threat is going to push a little bit further east throughout the day. so cities from chicago, cincinnati, down to nashville and all the way down to new orleans, still have the potential for, yes, some more tornado, but also damaging winds and also the potential for some hail to go along with it as we go through the afternoon. so here is a look at the time line. because this is going to be key. the morning time frame is this main line you see here. once we start getting into the afternoon you also have a lot of these cells, especially further south that begin to develop.
3:34 am
those are the ones that pull that heat of the day in and can oftentimes be incredibly intense storms. but the main line continues through the evening hours. tornado, this is when we start e to have a lot of concerns. their guard is down and they are sleeping and not paying as much attention and where you get higher fatality number oftentimes. tennessee and arkansas are all at risk for having a good majority of the tornado that they see happen at night. unfortunately, this is the same region we are talking about the threat for today. another threat also is the flooding potential. look at how much rain has already fallen. we are talking in excess of 8 inches already and now adding more on top of that. several locations along the mississippi river are likely to get near or if not above their record height, especially in and around missouri today. so that is going to be a threat going forward, especially a long-term threat because observe times with the river flooding you don't see the impacts until
3:35 am
monday, tuesday, or even wednesday of the upcoming week. >> good point there. allison chinchar, thanks to so much. president trump is leaving the door open for action against north korea. a lot of people wondering what his plan is. we have an exclusive live report for you from pyongyanpyongyang. >> kids stood on the steps of supreme court to protest president trump's climate policies. they will join us next. look closely. hidden in every swing, every chip, and every putt, is data that can make the difference between winning and losing. the microsoft cloud helps the pga tour turn countless points of data into insights that transform their business and will enhance the game for players and fans. the microsoft cloud turns information into insight.

3:37 am
3:38 am of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo is specifically designed to open up airways to improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems
3:39 am
and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. learn more about better breathing at listen to the president here and what he told cbs "face the nation." >> i would not be happy if he does a nuclear test, i will not
3:40 am
be happy. and i can tell you also i don't believe that the president of china, be who is a very respected man, will be happy either. >> not happy, meaning military action? i don't know. i mean, we will see. >> the failed missile launch blew up over land in territory but tension around the globe. mr. trump appeared to downplay the significance of the test calling it a small missile launch. after the president's 100th day rally in pennsylvania, reporters pressed him on his message to the north korean regime. [ inaudible question ] >> you'll soon find out, won't you? >> military action? >> you'll soon find out. >> let's go to cnn international correspondent will ripley in pyongyang. after the second failed missile test, does that make potentially a nuclear test more likely?
3:41 am
>> reporter: it could potentially, victor. this is infuror rating to the regime here which has insisted to us on the ground that they will conduct another nuclear test at the time of their choosing. however, in addition to all of this rhetoric and north korea blasting the u.s. even over this controversy who is paying the billion dollars for the missile defense system in south korea but we get a sense there is a desire to engage with the united states. they don't want to see a military conflict like the u.s. doesn't want to see a military conflict because it would be destructive for all side involved. >> i want to listen to what the president said last night in this tweet basically calling north korea's missile test a direct snub to china. here is what he tweeted. there appears to be some clear divisions in how the u.s. is responding and how china is
3:42 am
responding to north korea. what are you learning about how china is working with the u.s.? >> as of now, we haven't seen any public response in term of sanctions from china. there have been some state media editorials encouraging pyongyang not to move forward with that sixth nuclear test and they could face grave consequences for that and the big difference with china and the u.s. now versus the obama administration is we are getting a sense and certainly a sense from president trump that beijing seems to be willing to work with the u.s. more closely on trying to get north korea to denuclearize. china has always called for engage mted but how much of a stick would they be willing to use and cut off the flow of imports. keep in mind that nuclear test was supposed to be eminent but it hasn't happened yet. >> will ripley in pyongyanpyong
3:43 am
thanks so much. >> you see them here. there were thousands across the country who rallied for climate action yesterday. look at the kids here. these were some of the children who were part of that movement. a big part of it. some of them even taking their fight all the way to the steps of the supreme court. yes, a lawsuit is being field. they join us next. ♪ we are not here to sit idly by. we are leave a mark. experience a shift in the natural order. experience amazing.
3:44 am
3:45 am
3:46 am
3:47 am
you are listening to the sounds of tens of thousands of activists that descended upon washington yesterday for the people's climate march. one of many marches across the country and advocates demanded action on global warming. president trump en route to his rally in pennsylvania did have a
3:48 am
message for all of them. >> do you have a message for those rallying on climate change? >> to enjoy the day. and the weather. >> to enjoy the day and the weather, he said. meanwhile, the people who are ultimately affected by climate change are young people, of course. now some kids, yes, kids are taking legal action to protect their future. and they are doing so with a federal lawsuit. the lawsuit -- we should point out initially targeted the obama administration. now has taken on a different significance in president trump's administration but the lawsuit carrying on into this one. they took their fight all the way to the steps of the supreme court. you see them here. this was last week. they were among the thousands of people who were at the climate march yesterday. some of them have gotten up early after all of that and with us this morning. two of those kid kelsey and julianna and their legal counsel
3:49 am
from our children trust, jewel olson. thank you for being here and we certainly appreciate it. i wanted to ask you, first of all, kelsey, what was your reaction yesterday to the rally? >> i thought it was a beautiful demonstration of just how actively engaged and hopeful and joyous we are. we are doing this out of a place of love and deep passion to protecting the things that not only we value, but we hold to be true to ensuring the safety and security of all people. >> levi, you look like a happy camper today. so i have to believe that you were happy with the rally as well. help usnd here what is your biggest fear when it comes to the environment right now? >> well, my biggest fear is that if climate change continues, i live on a barrier island in florida and there has been lots of dune erosion. and if the dune keeps eroding,
3:50 am
then the sea turtles won't have a place to nest. that would be a really big problem. and also there has been way more wildfires than there has been normally. >> so kelsey, when you listen to what his concerns are, help people who don't understand maybe what human causes are doing to the environment, help them understand what we can do to alleviate his fears and to turn things around. >> every day action from all people is necessary and, of course, when we talk about addressing climate chaos, we are looking at a systemic shift, a paradigm shift that is necessary. you know, part of our case is looking at evidence that our government, our federal government who are literally elected into a job that, you
3:51 am
