tv Early Start with Christine Romans and Dave Briggs CNN February 4, 2019 2:00am-3:00am PST
♪ >> you want fish? come and get it. >> that is 14-year-old sam gordon who was playing football with the boys, a running back in salt lake city. nfl honors actually gave her their inaugural game changers award at the event. >> that is a cool touch. lebron james tweeted about that ad, it was his favorite of the night. so we'll give them the win. the "usa today" ad meter comes out at 8:15 this morning. "early start" continues from atlanta right now. how does it feel? >> unreal, man. >> rob gronkowski, tom brady and the patriots dynasty rolls on. new england grabbed its 6th title in the lowest scoring super bowl ever. virginia governor ralph northam under pressure, calls
for his resignation intensifying. and president trump refusing to rule out another government shutdown as he gets set to deliver his state of the union address tomorrow. good morning and welcome to early start. i'm kaylee hartung. >> and i'm dave briggs in atlanta. we're outside mercedes-benz stadium after super bowl liii. 17 million people are expected to call in sick today. christine romans is among that 17 million, so we're happy to have you alongside this morning to talk about this super bowl. and, yes, it was boring. yes, it was low scoring. the lowest scoring super bowl in history. but this is a 41-year-old man who is at the top of his game, most of us that age can barely tie our shoes some mornings. tom brady is still the best in the game. so let's appreciate the greatness that we have
witnessed. >> but not a great start that tom brady was hoping for, his first pass of the game intercepted by cory littleton. >> and that was a great play by chris hogan really to break it up because if it wasn't that, it might have been six points the other way. could have been a pick six. but we get some points finally. >> that field goal, first time we saw points on the board thanks to gostkowski. but gronk doing what gronk does. >> this game oddly dominated by punters for much of the way. this the longest punt in super bowl history, hekkers had a lot of roll on it. a 65 yarder. another record for the rams, they punted on their first seven possessions. this is the heist scos is the hm in the nfc, first time mcvay didn't sdor any poicore any poi.
>> and here brandin cooks not able to brir ng it down. >> mccourty sprinted across the entire field to make that play. should have been a touchdown. that is one that will haunt him for a while. and rob gronkowski barely any room to find that pass in double coverage and safety over the top, but it is just what they do when they see that coverage, they know where they are going to go. >> and first action in the red zone, this touchdown from of all people rookie running back sony michel, a product of the university of georgia. if you thought that stadium was like a home game for the patriots, anyone in atlanta son. >> and that ball perfectly thrown and it was also to brandon cooks and he should have reeled it in. two plays that they left out there that would have changed the entire game. sean mcvay hoping his young
quarterback can have another shot at it. >> but the next play, patriots blitz and goff is picked off. just a dagger in the heart of rams fans. >> and tb-12 just left to take a knee. and listen to this crowd erupt. because as someone who was in that stadium, it had to be 100:1 patriots fans to rams fans. it felt like it was foxborough. and tom brady claims his sixth super bowl ring at age 41. appreciate the greatness, folks. you'll never see anything like it again even though yes it was the lowest scoring super bowl ever. >> nobody has ever accomplished what tom brady did last night, six super bowl wins, all with bill belichick. and to hear them tell it, it never gets old. >> what does it mean to win six, man? you're the greatest of all time. >> i don't believe that. i don't believe that. i don't think about that. i just think i play with so many great guys on so many great teams. and i still get to do it.
41 years old, playing a sport i grew up loving. and proud of my team tonight. >> it is all about the players. these guys work so hard all year, they competed every week and they competed today like champions. they played like champions. >> tom brady is the g.o.a.t., but defense wins championships as they say and this game dominated by defense. it was still new england's julian edelman who took home mvp honors. he was the consistent go-to weapon for brady when they could get the offense going. edelman now has six career postseason games with 100 yards or more. and he gives all the credit for his success to his future hall of fame quarterback. >> it is through his actions and how he is as a football player, as a professional, as a father, as a family man, you know, it is pretty -- it is an honor to get to play with a guy like that.
he has six super bowls now. so pretty insane. >> tom brady known to call julian edelman the little brother he never had. edelman now second all-time in postseason receiving yards. but he says the mvp award should have gone to the entire new england defense. >> and off the field a brilliant performance by the empress of soul, gladys knight, her rendition of the national anthem to kick off the game was perfection. the 74-year-old atlanta native delivered a stunning star spangled banner, the end perfectly timed with an air force flyover. ♪ the home of the brave ♪ the brave
>> i think whitney houston still rules in terms of all-time anthems at the super bowl, but that was spectacular given they opened the stadium roof to see the flyover. and just how well she nailed it. and the crowd, boy, did they appreciate seeing her. >> and all credit to the thunderbird squadron for that perfectly timed flyover. less excitement for the halftime show. maroon 5's adam levine took to instragram to thank fans after the show. the singer also thanked his critics for always pushing us to do better. reviews were not kind. critics called it predictable, trite and even heartless. you also had a cameo from georgia native big boi. give him credit to making one heck of an entrance to perform his hit song the way you move, rolling up in the vintage cadillac, wearing a giant fur coat because why not.
also another cameo from rapper tr travis scott and somebody needs to explain sponge bob. >> everybody knew that moment just might be coming. we'll turn to politics now though. governor ralph northam met with people of color who work in his administration to talk about the racist photo in his med school yearbook. while he had first apologized for the photo, he then claimed he was not in it. >> i'm deeply sorry. i cannot change the decisions i made nor can i undo the harm my behavior caused then and today. i believe then and now that i am not either of the people in that photo. >> a democrat briefed on the session tells us not a single person at last night's meeting stood up and said northam should stay and fight.
northam's cabinet set to have its regular meeting at 99:00 a.. and our source is the governor last given no indication what he mi might do next. for more, let's turn to jessica dean. >> reporter: good morning. reporting from richmond, we are getting new information from a source with direct knowledge of the governor's thinking about this whole scenario and the bottom line is this, as of right now, that source is saying the governor's thinking has not changed, that the governor has no plans to resign, that the weekend's press conference was really put there for him to be able to explain the photo, to explain himself, to offer his thoughts to the public and also give himself some time to think about what the next moves might be. that source is saying that he is evaluating this minute by minute day by day, but that the only reason he would resign right now is if he believed that he was no longer able to govern effectively. and as of right now, that is not
the case. now, there have been calls all across the spectrum, democrats both locally here in virginia and nationally, calling for the governor's resignation. a lot of pressure on him to do that. the virginia legislature is scheduled to go into session later today on monday, but right now no public discussion, no official discussion of any sort of removal from office. we'll see what the days bring. and president trump refusing to rule out another government shutdown with just 11 days to go until the current funding runs out. in an interview that aired sunday, the president warned that he was still considering declaring a national emergency so he could use military funds to build his border wall. >> would you shut down the government again? >> we'll have to see what happens on february 15th. >> you're not taking it off the table? >> i don't take anything off the table. i don't like to take things off the table. it is that alternative, it is national emergency, it is other
things. you know, there have been plenty national emergencies called. you need a wall and anybody that says you don't, they are just playing games. >> president trump delivers his state of the union address tomorrow night. cnn's coverage begins at 8:00 p.m. and then wednesday, "early start" will air an extra hour early at 3:00 a.m. eastern time. next more from last night's super bowl here in atlanta, we'll hear from the super bowl mvp and the one some call the g.o.a.t. greatest of all-time. rex catches everything you throw at him. and so does jackson hewitt, like the biggest tax reform in decades at jackson hewitt we help lots of people like you. no one gets you a bigger refund. otherwise you get $100. that's right. no one gets you a bigger refund. visit jackson hewitt today. what maheart-healthyle salad the california walnuts.ver?

and you have a different feeling after sleeping on it. >> as a former defensive player, i say what an incredible game. there were nearly as many punts, 14 as this way points in this game. think about that. 16 points total, lowest scoring super bowl in the super bowl history. so that is something. and from a defensive perspective, it did start off with tom brady's first attempt an interception. the game ending essentially with an interception. but we do have to focus in on tom brady. unprecedented sixth super bowl title. he now needs a secondhand for t his new ring. it is simply outstanding. and to think about how he has led this team. they won this game without him throwing a single touchdown pass. that shows his leadership, that it tickles down through the rest of the people, able to get the
job doespite him not having a stellar game. hines ward caught up with him afterwards. >> what does it mean to win six. greatest of all-time. >> i don't believe that. i don't believe that. i don't think about that. i just play with so many great guys on so many great teams. and i still get to do it. 41 years old playing a sport i grew up loving. and proud of my team tonight. >> what about jules? >> he is like little hines ward tonight, wasn't he? he played his butt off. he was so focused. we needed him big time and he came through. >> krcongrats. mvp of the super bowl, what does that mean? >> pretty crazy. pretty surreal. >> you're not going to sleep tonight, i guarantee you that. >> i don't know yet. i just want to say hello to my little baby girl lilly, i love you, i miss you and i can't wait to see you. >> how about julian be eledelma.
remember last year he missed the super bowl, he had an injury. he was offered no scholarships out of high school and here he is helping the pats get that historic super bowl. and we want to show the front page of the "boston globe." the dynasty rolls on. and look at the picture. at the highest level, spot is not about what you play for, the trophies and the rings, it is about who you play for. tom brady there with his daughter, that sums it all up for tom brady and the rest of the patriots. feeling good this morning. >> yeah, tom talked a lot about his family immediately after the game, how important and how supportive they have been. that is one of the great sides of the super bowl. hard to imagine he won't get another one. how about gronk, is he coming back? >> i asked him personally and other reporters, he said that he would take a week, maybe two to think about it. >> what is your gut? >> my gut tells me he is coming back. he is just too good. he was healthy for the most part
this year. he does play a physical position. we'll see. >> he played a spectacular super bowl. he really got better as the season went on. coy wire, good to see you. coming up ahead, grammy nominated rapper 21 savage in custody this morning, arrested by immigration and customs enforcement. why authorities claim the entertainer is in the country illegally, next. if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis, month after month, the clock is ticking on irreversible joint damage. ongoing pain and stiffness are signs of joint erosion. humira can help stop the clock. prescribed for 15 years, humira targets and blocks a source of inflammation that contributes to joint pain and irreversible damage. vo: humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. tell your doctor if you've been to areas

stadium in atlanta, site of super bowl liii. 5:30 a.m. eastern time as the patriots are now super bowl champions once again, the sixth super bowl ring for tom brady and bill belichick. and what a great combination. we'll never know if you separate them would either be great on their own. we will never need to know. but this duo is not going away anytime soon. >> i don't think we'll see anything like this in our lifetimes. >> it wasn't a perfect start though for tom brady even though he is the g.o.a.t. he didn't start that way. his first pass of the game is picked off. it floated a little bit. and it felt like the air went out of the patriots team earlier in this night. but you know they're new england, they bounce back. >> it wasn't until the second quarter though that anybody got points on the board. stephen gostkowski booting that
42 yard field goal. >> he had missed earlier. and punting sadly the theme of the game for much of the way. for the rams, that is where they got in the record books, a 65 yarder from johnny hekkers, longest punt in super bowl history. they punted on their first seven possessions. >> 14 punts in the game. and this is not what the rams fans wanted to see in that drive. could could have been the play of the game. >> jason mccourty comes and i will the way across the field to break up the play. even when he did throw it, it sailed and that play could have changed the entire game. >> midway through the fourth quarter, this 29 yard hook upfr upfrom brady to gronkowski, first action in the red soeczonl game long. >> double coverage there and
still the completion. sony michel who lo tst the national championship game on this very field a year ago, the only touchdown. >> and right here the rams had a chance to tie it, another misconnection between goff and brandin cooks. >> that one was perfectly thrown though. goff threw a beauty. great defensive play, but i think cooks could have and should have come up with it. and ended up with this throw, one he'd love to have back. >> the dagger to the rams right there. gilmore sealing the win for the patriots. but the game ends with the ball in tom brady's hands. tb-12 doing what he does. >> the g.o.a.t. taking a knee, the lowest scoring super bowl in history. and bill belichick at 66 years old claims yet another super bowl ring. >> nobody has ever accomplished what tom brady did last night. six super bowl win, all with bill belichick. and to hear them tell it, no matter how much people like to hate on the patriots, it never
gets old. >> what does it mean to win six, man? greatest of all-time. >> i don't believe that. i just think i play with so many great guys on so many great teams. 41 years old playing a sport i grew up loving and proud of my team tonight. >> it is all about the players. they competed every week and they competed today like champions. they played like champions. >> the game quus was dominated by defense, and julian edelman took home mvp honors. he had 10 catches for 141 yards and was the consist teent go-to weapon for tom brady. edelman now has six career postseason games with 100 yards or more and he gives all the credit to his future hall of fame quarterback. >> it is through his actions and how he is as a football player, as a professional, as a father, as a family man.
you know, it is pretty -- it is an honor to get to play with a guy like that. he has six super bowls now. pretty insane. >> edelman now second all-time in postseason yards. he told reporters that the mvp award should have gone to the entire new england defense. >> that would have been appropriate. twitter is raving at the empress of soul. gladis knight's rendition of the national anthem to kick the game off. the atlanta native delivering a perfect star spangled banner and perfectly timed at the end with an air force flyover. ♪ and the home of the brave ♪ the brave
>> what a sound, what a cite, o one of the great performances. certainly better than the halftime performance. >> nothing but praise there. but that takes us to maroon 5. adam levine himself taking to instragram to thank fans after the halftime show. and he thanked his critics for, quote, always pushing us to do better. the reviews of the performance were not all that kind. critics called it predictable, trite and heartless. and you also had big boi made a fleeting appearance to perform his hit song the way you move and the show also fee chir edch travis scott. and of course sponge bob because his creator died earlier this year, more than a million petitioners signed to get it and they delivered. half of the fun of the super bowl of course has nothing to do
football, it is all the commercials that cost $5.2 million per 30 seconds. helping us break it down, oliver dars ci dars city the darcy there in new york. what did you think of t u nid y show? >> nothing to knock, no real headlines other than it may have been boring. i think largely though if you were hoping that the halftime show and maybe some of the advertisements would distract from the game, which was a bit of a snooze fest, you were out of luck. the halftime show was nothing remarkable and i know we'll talk about some of the ads, but they did not really stand out to me. >> stand out, i might ask, if the "washington post" ad did. how powerful did you feel it was? >> that was one of the -- maybe the only ad actually of the night that i think that we'll be talking about and remember a few years from now. i thought it was very well done
ad, executed -- narrated by tom hanks. it hit some of the keys that you would expect. it was powerful and moving when you saw at the end of the ad some. journalists slain or missing in action as they are reporting abroad. and i thought that was moving and powerful. but that was really the only -- that was the exception of the night. i think largely we saw ads that didn't really hit home with viewers. there was a weird theme on row b robots. the whole thing was strange. >> i thought the "game of thrones" collaboration with bud light was brilliantly designed, a bit of a cliffhanger if we can show folks some of that. did it surprise you, did you know this was coming? and how did it all come together? >> that one surprised me. i'm not sure if it was a great ad, but it certainly was surprising. and i think the back story behind it is very interesting. hbo collaborating with bud light to make this ad. and there was a lot of behind the scenes play.
they had to kill out before knight which is one bud light's biggest fictional characters. and hbo convinced bud light to kill him off, there was talk about how graphic be the killing would be and bud light pushed back saying they didn't want some of the skull crushing noises. so that whole thing was very interesting. >> and hbo here we also saw netflix and amazon, did it surprise you to see the streaming services who i can only imagine took a hit in their own viewer ship last night really get in the commercial game for the super bowl? >> we know netflix said their viewing was down last night. and it was surprising. i think ten years ago we never would have expected to see streaming services like netflix, hulu, amazon brim priprime adve during the super bowl. showed how much it has changed over the years and entertainment now is becoming a streaming war
if you will. >> i can't help but wonder if we will see a bit of a ratings drop just because of how much people are watching netflix given the lack of climatic feeling of the game. >> lack of offense. >> do you feel though, all these ads being leaked early, is it working or something they might get away from even though the nfl 100th ad we thought was best of the night, it was hilarious, 26 players. but people knew it was coming. is that working out? >> that's a good question. i think that these brands when they are advertising at the super bowl, they are trying to capitalize as much as they can outside the actual advertisement that airs in the super bowl. they want their ad to go viral, they want people to be talking about it online. half the marketing is geared toward that. so i think they do upload them a lot of times on line early and sometimes it does work. sometimes the ads go viral,
people start talking about them and it works. but in it case i think the ads missed the mark so much that no one was really sharing a lot of them. it wasn't something that hit home with viewers. and frankly, we were talking about whether the netflix and some of these other services would rip into the ratings for the super bowl, and i think it is possible. frankly, if i hadn't been coming on air to talk about the super bowl this morning with you guy, you may have changed the channel as well. the ads like i said weren't h hitting home and halftime show was underwhelming. >> and so differing opinions on the viewing quality, but thanks to keep you aing your tv on tha joining us this morning. >> not a fan of defensive football games clearly. coming up, pressure mountses on the virginia democratic governor to resign over the racist photo. we'll tell you what ralph northam plans to do coming up. natural enamel,

a lot of pressure on him to do that. the virginia legislature is scheduled to go into session later today on monday, but right now no public discussion, no official discussion of any sort of removal from office. we'll see what the days bring. >> yes, sir came, thank you. and let's bring in our political analyst. julian zelizer. let's talk more about ralph northam. democrats have lined up across the country saying that he has to step down. you wrote a piece on cnn.com and you talk about the time at which this photo was posted, it was 1984. mlk day just became a holiday in 83 [']. and what was happening in virginia at that time? >> virginia is actually resisting the martin luther king birthday and they will combine it with the lee jackson birthday to celebrate the confederacy.
so this is an era where there was a lot of backlash toward the civil rights movement, and also the same year ronald reagan denounces the kkk publicly when they enforce him. so putting this picture in your year bobook for medical school quite a statement. we don't know why he did it. but to see it there isn't just are simply oh, that is what people did back then. >> these two dueling news cycles, the northam controversy and the other end, the diverse array of 2020 candidates. sherrod brown could be one of them. listen to this sound bite from him on "meet the press" yesterday. >> i think this country hasn't dealt well with the issues of race. we have a president who is a racist. i know that he built his political career knowing what he was doing on questioning the legitimacy and the birth place of the president of the united states. >> so there you have sherrod brown calling the president a
racist. what is your perspective on the role that race will really play in the 2020 campaign? >> it will be a big issue for many democrats. this has been a central issue in the trump administration, both with the president and many of his supporters. race defined as relations between black and white americans, but also the issue of immigration. so that is why you are seeing a lot of pressure from national democrats to deal with this issue. and really a frustration to see this emerge with a democrat in the middle of the opening bell really of the 2020 campaign. >> and last thing they want is a drag on the party in 2020. and they want to be able to separate themselves and say republicans, you have hung on to steve king for all these years, he remains a part of the party even though he's had some responsibilities stripped away. but i want to talk about tomorrow night's state of the union where the president will clearly make his final pitch for
the wall. can he get any border wall funding from nancy pelosi or are we headed toward another government shutdown? he addressed that with cbs on sunday. >> would you shut down the government again? >> well, we'll have to see what happens on february 15th. >> you're not taking it off the table? >> i don't take anything off the table. i don't like to take things off the table. it is that alternative. it is national emergency. it is other things. and, you know, there have been plenty national emergencies called. you need a wall. and anybody that says you don't, they are just playing games. >> there have been no national emergencies called in which a president failed to reach a legislative goal. and that is why he called the emergency. is that where we're headed, can president trump make the case for his wall at the state of the union? >> no, he can't make the case. he is not going to persuade democrats to support this nor is he going to convince many
judicial officials or members of congress that there is a national emergency. so if he deals with this in the state of the union, it is simply going to be a talking point, an effort to rally the base once again behind a wall that he has not been able to get. this will not be a speech that unites america even if he tries to do that, he will be right back to divided government, divided politics within a day. >> so that is what you feel about the state of the union. what about the optics? nancy pelosi sitting right behind the president, what is the one surprise you think we could have tomorrow night? >> a smile. i think most likely there will be some stern looks coming from speaker pelosi. she's not happy hearing that he is still threatening a shutdown. but she is pretty firm. she is not going to concede. they has the votes. so i assume the image will be one fraught with tension which will tell the story of the next year in this battle between
house democrats and the president of the united states. >> didn't look for any legislation happening at all between those two. it should be an interesting night. julian zelizer, thank you for being with us. cnn's coverage of the state of the union starts tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. and a look at one of our favorite ads from last night's super bowl is next. stay right here with us on "early start." ♪ ♪'cause this is already bigger ♪'this is already bigger than love♪ dare to be devoted. jared. ♪ give the gift of devotion with our incredible selection of jewelry including hundreds of pieces under $299 dare to be devoted. only at jared.
