newsroom. i'm ana cabrera in new york. our breaking news this sunday evening, the urgent identity of control wildfire emergency in several parts of california. earlier today the death toll jumped again when fire officials found the bodies of two more people in the fire-ravaged los angeles suburb of malibu. cliffside homes there and in ventura county they are burned to the ground or seriously damaged. hundreds of thousands of people in l.a. county, ventura county have evacuated, and it's not just there that it's unsafe. the most destructive of the wildfires is actually in northern california where about 6,500 family homes have burned down in at least one town north of sacramento was completely destroyed. a mom and her daughter escaped the flames. a look at all of the destruction that left -- was left behind. here's how they got out. >> i've never been so scared in my life. >> it's okay, momma.
5:02 pm
>> oh, god. >> it's okay, mom ark. it's okay. please, please drive. just please drive. >> i am. i'm trying. oh, please, god, please. please let us get out safe. >> there's something else. officials fear the death toll may still go up. more than 100 people who live in the fire zones are not accounted for, and their families don't know at this hour if those people are safe. a few minutes ago the governor of california spoke to reporters, and he took issues with this tweet from president trump blaming the fires on california saying, quote, forest management is so poor. here's governor jerry brown's response. >> managing all the forests in every way we can does not stop climate change, and those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies
5:03 pm
that we're now witnessing and will continue to witness in the coming years so the chickens are not pulling together these tragic circumstances and thinking wisely and collaboratively and that's the spirit in which i'm approaching all that we need to do. >> they are in that utterly devastated town in california. what is left standing there? >> really almost nothing. most of paradise looks like the scene that you see behind me. here we are three days since that fire started. the smoke has startled to settle in and parts are smouldering and other parts the fire is spreading, and what residents tell me what they went through here on thursday morning sounds nothing short of had a nightmare. >> there's a welcome to paradise sign. >> it is. that's our paradise sign.
5:04 pm
>> by the time most people in paradise realize how quickly the fire was spreading, they were already in trouble. this man couldn't believe his eyes. >> the [ bleep ] town is on fire. >> this isn't anything like what we've had before but here you're looking at 90% of the homes are gone in every single neighborhood. >> jody jones is the paradise mayor. he says the speed and frositivity fire onfroerocity only gave the town five minutes to evacuate. there was such panic on the main road out of town, some drivers abandoned their cars as they tried to flee on foot. >> we did have an evacuation plan in place. we did implement it. it worked the way it was supposed to work. we just never anticipated having to evacuate all zones all at the same time. >> an automatic emergency alert was sent out to land lines and cell phones of registered residents. >> but not everyone got a notification. cole wyatt and his family, they live here and cole tells me he was asleep at the time that the
5:05 pm
fire started. had it not been a phone call from his brother, he says he might not have gotten out before it was too late. >> he didn't even think it was bad enough to call, but something in his gut said i needed, to you know, make sure my family know, and thank god he did. >> cole wasn't registered to receive the alerts. >> i -- i immediately started thinking about my doubter. >> in the chaos cole says it took him two hours to find out his 8-year-old daughter had already been picked up from school by a family member. when they finally did evacuate, stuck in the gridlock he ran out of gas. a stranger stopped and gave him enough to get out of town. >> has it hit you yet? >> no, no. i'm still in shock. i'm still waiting to wake up from this terrible dream. my daughter. she said i know we hated our home and we wanted to move out, but it was our home, and i'm sad that it's gone. >> outside of paradise we meet james and ruby harris. their car still covered in ash from the fire. they show us where it was
5:06 pm
damaged when an rv crashed into them during the evacuation trying to move it out of the way. the scene they described is absolutely mayhem. >> and my husband had to get our son out of the car and into the wheelchair and, you know, buckle him in and, you know, keep my other autistic sons from taking off. >> reporter: while flames are surrounding. >> you exactly. >> and everybody is running. >> reporter: they were able to get out though the harrises and wyatts have nothing to get rid of. >> our whole town was wiped off the face of the earth in eight hours. >> reporter: the most destructive wildfire has changed their town forever. it is so bad here that the mayor tells me it will likely be weeks before residents are allowed to come back in and those who come back, ana, it's skre likely they will have nothing to come back home to. >> such a shame. thank you, nick valencia for sharing their stories with us. moments ago president trump, the
5:07 pm
first lady returned to the u.s. from paris, france. here they are coming off air force one. they were there to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of world war i, and what should have been a cordial meeting with allies turned contentious. remember a couple of weeks ago when president trump declared he was a nationalist? well, it seems his host, french president emmanuel macron heard about that and had a very public message for trump. listen. >> translator: patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying our interests first, who cares about the others? we erase what a nation heads dearest and what gives it life and what makes it grace and what makes it essential, its moral values. >> with it now cnn senior political analyst and former presidential adviser to four u.s. presidents david gergen and cnn chief media correspondent
5:08 pm
and host of "reliable sources" here on cnn brian stelter. david, how do you think president trump took macron's not so subtle message? >> not well at all. and didn't take the message from macron a few months ago and he needs to build his own army to protect itself from russia and china and indeed perhaps from the united states. we now reached a stage where the honeymoon where macron and trump has clearly become very divisive. it's falling apart around that has some danger for the united states because macron is first and foremost someone who believes that france and europe will best be saved if it's in a collaborative framework. that's the lesson in the first world war and second world war and at the end of the first ward
5:09 pm
where where is a million people, soldiers and civilians died through excessive nationalism one of the reasons why europe is is going its own in the united states macron makes the comments where they do have a counter to what the president has been saying and the president did not strike back. >> he did not. i'm not quite sure why. we'll have to see what he tweets here in the next day or two to fully conclude that he's not going to answer but i'm not -- this president was angry. no warm embraces here and they were almost sort of like forced smiles and macron clearly
5:10 pm
believes what donald trump represents has become a serious danger and trump believes macron and others don't understand the modern world, that you have to put your nation's interests first in a competitive world that we find ourselves in and that's the best way to work for your people. that's what donald trump firmly believes. for europeans, nationalism has a terrible odor going back to the first and second world wars. george orwell famously wrote an essay comparing nationalism to patriotism and saying that nationalcism about putting interests first, about being aggressive and the he will with everybody else and it led directly to the first and second world wars and nationalism in trump's mind is -- orwell concluded and what macron was talking to fareed zakaria about earlier today was the importance of patriotism. that was love of country and seeing it within a collaborative
5:11 pm
international framework. the president has called himself a nationalist and he heard macron taking swipes at him and his rhetoric. are you surprise that had he hasn't even tweeted about that? i think he's saving it for when it gets home. the president was on this trip over the weekend but he was caught up in scandal and problems on the home front the scandal involving his newly appointed attorney general and all the actions concerning whitaker and for the president the reality of the house taking -- being taken by the democrats, the reality of the democrats taking control of the house that's starting to sink in. you can see he's in a foul mood, showing up late to events in photographs and not desiring to be there. i do think he'll end up responding, but at a time of his own choose, and frankly he'll do it when he can't be counterpunched when he's back in the u.s. and it's harder for others to respond. >> he was m.i.a. at a ceremony yesterday. we have a couple of pictures, these are from another ceremony.
5:12 pm
french president emmanuel macron was there. german chancellor angela merkel, president putin and the canadian prime minister justin trudeau, all there, but noticeably absent was president trump. the reason that we're told is weather limited marine one and the travel option there. david, is that bad optics or is it more than that? >> well, symbolically it's very important. it's fair, in fairness to the president. the leader of britain was not there either. she had her own commemoration ceremonies theresa may. i think arriving today late at the arc de triomphe, he came in late. . it hurts him and his reputation. might have been a reason why the secret service did not want him
5:13 pm
to go especially in a helicopter on a rainy day. i've been in those helicopters and you don't feel like you're in full control. >> overseas california is burning up. president trump is treating about that. in his latest tweet after saying he would withhold federal money, with proper forest management we can stop devastation constantly going on in california. get smart. why do you think this is his focus? >> always making an execution and as our colleague said this has nothing to do with forest management. these areas that have burned. not related to forest management. by the way, most of the forests in california are under federal management anyway and owned by the federal government so it's the president's problem anyway, but he's always trying to make excuses, and this is one of those excuses that's really embarrassing. someone, you know, one of the days where someone needs to take the twitter account away from the president because on a day when it's one of the deadliest fires or on a weekend when the
5:14 pm
deadliest fires i don't care how blue that state is. they deserve a president, not a tweeter in chief, someone who cares about the deaths and danger there, the ongoing danger there but he's not showing that on twitter. the california's office says the tweets are inane and unfive-day and firefighters out thereto criticizing the president. the criticism never gets through to him and that's maybe the problem. >> got to squeeze in a quick break. a lot more to talk about, an apology from "saturday night live," and payback for congressman-elect dan crenshaw after the show's controversial joke last weekend. how the former navy s.e.a.l. responded with his own set of jokes and a lesson for all of us on this veterans day weekend. that's next. you're live in the "cnn newsroom." absolutely not paying an annual fee. discover has no annual fees. really? yeah. we just don't believe in them. oh nice. you would not believe how long i've been rehearsing that. no annual fee on any card. only from discover.
5:15 pm
and the wolf huffed and puffed... like you do sometimes, grandpa? well, when you have copd, it can be hard to breathe. so my doctor said... symbicort can help you breathe better. starting within 5 minutes. it doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. doctor: symbicort helps provide significant improvement of your lung function. symbicort is for copd, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. it may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it.
5:16 pm
grandpa: symbicort could mean a day with better breathing. watch out, piggy! (giggles) get symbicort free at if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
5:17 pm
5:18 pm
if you can't afford your medication, every insurance company tells you they can save you money. save up to 10% when you bundle with esurance. including me, esurance spokesperson dennis quaid. he's a pretty good spokesperson. ehhh. so when i say, "drivers who switched from geico to esurance saved an average of $412," you probably won't believe me. hey, actor lady whose scene was cut. hi. but you can believe this esurance employee, nancy abraham. seriously, send her an email and ask her yourself. no emails... no emails. when insurance is affordable, it's surprisingly painless. florida, the center of an election controversy yet again. at statewide recount again under way there right now. every single vote being counted, scanned one by one. back through the machines right
5:19 pm
now, and as always this plays out, several republicans, including florida's governor rick scott who is also a senate candidate there, are making unfounded allegations of fraud. >> senator nelson is trying to -- trying to commit fraud to try to win this election. that's all this is. >> wait a second. i want to pick up on that. you're accusing bill nelson of trying to commit fraud? >> his lawyer said that had a non-citizen should vote. that's one. number two, he's gone to trial and said that fraudulent ballots should be counted. ballots have already been thrown out because they were not done properly. he says those should be counted. >> and you think that is the senator himself is committing fraud. >> well, it's his team. >> david and brian are back with me. also joining us cnn political analyst and political editor for the "new york times" patrick healy. david, is this strategy alleging criminal activity in an election
5:20 pm
just typical politics now, and what do you see as the consequences of going this route? >> well, i'm -- you know, it hasn't been part of our politics, it's not been standard fare for our politics even in florida or georgia. in rows ent times things have been a little straighter, but i must say this brings back a lot of memories of a politics that's nasty, that's broodish, and, unfortunately, it's not short. it goes on and on and on right now, and i -- i -- listen. i don't know the ins or outs of the particulars in florida, but it's the least edifying and most sort of off-putting behavior on -- on the governor's part. i don't know why he would bring up these charges of fraud and present zero hard evidence as far as i can tell to really show that to be trow. >> we all know the history to
5:21 pm
some degree. patrick, you've been covering politics a long time in this country. you know the history of broward county, palm beach county, the controversy that has happened in those counties over multiple elections. are there some legitimate concerns? >> well, there are some legitimate concerns, but rick scott is going there. he's going to the trump playbook. i mean, this is a governor who was a fairly kind of individualistic somewhat, you know, could be somewhat kirk and at least independent guy, but he's reading off a republican talking point and already sounding like a kind of typical washington senator when he's sort of saying, you know, bill nelson is cooking up fraud without providing any kind of evidence. i mean, he's just going to that and making these broad sweeping claims that are aimed at the trump base which, as we've seen, particularly in florida, is growing more white, more rural
5:22 pm
and he's going after targets in broward county and palm beach county, you know, without, again presenting evidence but creating this sort of again this sense of sort of liberals and radicals stealing the election out from under you, and it -- and it frankly sort of masks, yes, some problems with how our voting system still works in close elections in this country. we still have problems because there is a lack of uniformity, because counties are run oftentimes by partisans. these are problems, but, instead, you're hearing just these kind of really sort of what sound like very political partisan talking points, and, again, playing to it feels like a base of voters, like in the panhandle of florida, sort of saying, kind of demonizing the folks in broward county. >> i think that's important to point out though that rick scott has been the governor of florida for the past eight years. brenda snipes who is the head of elections in broward county, for
5:23 pm
example, somebody who has been serving in her seat for the mast 5 years. he could have made some changes along the way as well as governor of that state, and he does have a secretary of state who is also a republican who, again, has said there is no evidence of any criminal activity. >> that's what we need to keep repeating over and over again. these voter fraud claims almost never have merit. almost never has merit and in arizona, for example, the local officials and the senators, they have been really responsible about dispelling these lies about voter fraud. >> some of these are working together. >> i want to pivot to "snl" with a segment with pete davidson and congressman-elect dave crenshaw. last week davidson made fun of crenshaw's eye patch and here's what happened this week. >> look, i just wanted to say for people who don't know, the reason you're wearing an eye patch right now is that you lost your eye to an ied in afghanistan during your third combat tour and i'm sorry. >> thank you, pete, i appreciate you saying that.
5:24 pm
>> so are we good? >> we're good. >> apology accepted. ♪ just keep breathing and breathing ♪ >> my phone is ringing. >> you going to answer that. >> that's rude to answer. just let it go to voice mail. >> no, it's cool. do you know her? >> agrand, being his ex-fiancee. a bit of a mowa culpa there. >> i think it's well handled by both sides. pete davidson screwed this up week but mocking this now congressman elect. it was ugly and davidson deserved the criticism he received for that segment, but to come back a week later and to have crenshaw on with him and for both men to be able to talk about it together. we don't see this often enough. >> yeah. it used to be that politicians make cameos all the time on these shows and we would see some, you know, across-the-aisle behavior. esle? a liberal show but crenshaw as
5:25 pm
as gop congressman-elect to go on there and get the last laugh but to acknowledge what happened and to be able to joke around with davidson was really nice to see and we need more naff. >> the whole segments was four minutes. we couldn't play the whole thing. this controversy did hit a lot of nerve and it seemed to unite people from both sides of the aisle. can this set a new tone going forward after the mid terms? >> well, i hope so because i thought it was a most inspiring -- one of the most inspirational moments of this veterans day weekend, and frankly since the mid-terms occurred and what was really, really good about this, pete handled this extraordinarily well, never told us that his own father died at 9/11 as a firefighter in a added this extra dimension, emotion aolity into it, but crenshaw, my goodness, you know, he's -- he's a recent graduate here at the kennedy school where i'm privileged to teach. he's a hard line conservative, but i thought his closing
5:26 pm
statement last night when he called for us to pull together and, of course, we need to let bygones be bygones on these jokes and insults, that he wanted to work across the aisle. he did say at the end, you know, he hoped that we would no longer say thank you for your service but say never forgot, and those to some ears that sounds like a terrific, you know, sentiment. if you're jewish, it has a very different meaning, and it has to do with the holocaust, and i -- i do think that it's probably a good thing to use some other phrase to pull people together in the future, but i thought crenshaw what he did was overall splendid. >> patrick healy i owe you a question but i'm out of time in this block. thank you so much, brian stelter, patrick and david gergen for being with me. appreciate, it guys. former first lady michelle obama has a new book coming out and she's not holding back with her

these days the idea of being caught in a mass shooting is sadly no longer something we all think can never happen to us, but imagine living through not one but two mass shootings. in just over a year, that is the nightmare at least one survivor of last year's shooting at a country music festival in las vegas found himself in this week when a gunman opened fire at a country bar in southern california. we talked to a 22-year-old man who made it out alive again and i asked him what it was like. >> i wish there was an easy answer, and i wish i could tell you what it's like to go through one, but to only go through two

5:41 pm
we joke around and see how everybody is doing and make sure that everybody is good and just enjoy a good time, and -- and it wasn't until i left the bar and went towards the back corner to go say i had to more friends that i heard the first few initial shots and it wasn't until after the third that i was able to recognize that that was gunfire. people started screaming, running and -- and just in terror, so working there as past security i knew where my location was. i knew there was an exit door so what i decided to do was go up in that exit door and tell people that you need to exit out of here, stay down low. don't stampede over each other, just try and make it out and if somewhere safe. once i saw that the scene was started to get clear and i had an idea of where the shooter was located, i -- i made it outside myself and from where people were in the parking lot i moved them from where they were to
