tv New Day Weekend With Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul CNN May 26, 2019 3:00am-4:00am PDT
i felt trailer 80 hit our trailer. trailer 80 flipped over. >> prayer for the first responders and the people searching the hotel and the mobile home site. >> last 17 days of my life have been the toughest. it came down to life and death and i had to choose. and i chose life. the u.s. president is getting a front row seat for the finals of the grand sumo tournament during his visit to tokyo. >> how big is that event
compared to the super bowl for the japanese? and the prime minister said it is about 100 times bigger. i said i'll be there. we begin with the breaking news overnight, two people are dead after a tornado tore through el reno, oklahoma destroying a hotel and a mobile home park. >> take a look at some of the latest video that we're getting in here. that area as you see there has been leveled and you see the lights flashing from all the emergency crews that are there. this is a storm that blew through very quickly. people inside the trailers say they felt it before the warning sirens even went off and the city's mayor is calling the scene, quote, horrific. >> this is roughly six years to the day since el reno was hit by another tornado that killed eight people including three storm chasers.
>> omar jimenez is live from mt. pleasant, too pleasant, texas with us. what are you hearing about the moment that the storm hit? >> reporter: yeah, i mean you said it correctly, we've been really trying to hone in on this mobile home park and this hotel, they got slammed when this tornado came through. let's remember it came in the overnight hours, so it was completely dark out. as far as visuals go, no one would have been able to get any context as to where the storm was coming through. and when you talk about the mobile home park in particular to start with, we heard from rachel garrison who is a resident who actually rode the storm out as it sounds like the tornado came right over where she was with a child inside. listen to some of what she said. >> i heard it coming. i felt the trailer 80 hit our trailer. i know trailer 80 flipped over on top of 81, which we were in. and after everything was over with and all the shaking and jarring and everybody landing on
the floor, the sirens went off. >> a little too late. just got real dark real fast and everything started shaking violently. >> i told them to hit the floor. >> reporter: a scary set of moments there again as the storm completely rolled through. in addition to the mobile home park, we know a hotel was almost leveled really. the staff says that everyone has been accounted for, but one staff member did suffer a broken leg and is being treated at the hospital. and damage assessment continues even before the sun comes up now. >> so when will we get the details about this expected tornado, the level, the intentity about this storm? >> reporter: yeah, so those are all things that are being worked on. the damage assessment is happening on the ground as far as going door to door and trying to locate potential victims and to see other pieces of
infrastructure that were destroyed. and when the sun comes up, they are going to get a better idea of the context and scope of this tornado that ripped through this town just west of oklahoma city. and on the actual storm front, the national weather service still gathering data to determine how big this tornado actually was. we don't know at what level on the enhanced fujita skcale this was. so that is what we're waiting on as well. and let's remember, this did not happen in a vacuum. this comes in the context of what has been a week full of deadly tornadoes, flooding, water rescues across oklahoma, missouri, and even parts of texas. and all 77 counties of oklahoma were under a state of emergency before this storm came in, which just gives you an idea of how much they were dealing with already on the tail end of this week. >> well into a second week of tornado threat.
owe far i can't cmar jimenez, t. >> allison chinchar, one thing that you were saying to us, this is one of those storms that comes in so quickly, you just don't have time to take cover. >> yeah, it is called a qlc. they are very brief. you know the storm overall has the potential to cause a lot of damage, but you just don't ever know where within that line of storms that tornado may drop. and that is why you end up having very little if no warning time when these tornados take place. here is a look at some of the damage. you don't see much here. this is what the picture should look like. this right here. this hotel. now here it is once again, again you can see entirely leveled down to the ground. this is the storm system as it made it's way through. and you can see what is called a bow, that usually indicates very, very strong winds. right here this is the town of el reno as it was moving through. let's where he dobreak down the.
11:26 eastern time, 10:26 central time, tornado warning was issued. one minute later the sirens went off at 27 past the hour. and then just two minutes later at 11:29 eastern time, that is when you really started to have a lot of the damage begin to come in from the town of el reno. so you are talking minutes here that really made the difference as this tornado ripped through the area. one other thing to note, this was a nocturnal tornado meaning it happened at night, people are sleeping, they are unaware. 37% of all the tornadoes that take place in oklahoma are actually nocturnal tornadoes. so again, keep that in mind and that is where we end up getting the highest fatalities because people are asleep. and this is only one of nine possible tornadoes yesterday. and again, we had over 100 total storm reports. but this is where we expect to move forward. we expect a skreer weathevere w
texas, oklahoma, kansas and across the midwest and mid-atlantic. >> so talk to us about what is happening in south america, this strong earthquake that hit overnight. >> yes, very strong earthquake. an 8.0 in fact in peru. pretty far inland and also very deep. we're talking 109 kilometers or 68 miles deep. that is very important because depth plays a huge factor when we talk about these because the deeper a quake is, the less significant the damage is likely going to be. here is a look though, an 8.0, we typically only average one of those per year. so this is the largest one we've had so far this year. the other down fall, larger earthquakes like that, it also means that you are more likely to get significant aftershocks. it is likely that you could have 6.0s, 7.0s and multiple of those categories for aftershocks going forward. the other thing, liquefaction will be a big concern for this area. so anything that may have already been maybe slightly
damaged could potentially get more significantly damaged during several of those aftershocks. >> alilison chinchar, thank you so much for walking us through it. today two of president trump's state visits to japan and another full day of bonding with prime minister shinzo abe. trade talks, golf, sumo wrestling. yes, let's start with golf though. the golf selfie from earlier. >> a short time ago the president and wife joined the prime minister to watch the sumo grand championship. they sat ringside taking all of it in. president trump then presented an enormous trophy called the president's cup to the winner. boris sanchez is traveling with the president and joins us live from tokyo. so it has been a busy day. but we know that there is a
dinner for just the couples if i understand it as well, for both the prime minister, the president and their spouses. what is happening? >> reporter: that's right, right now the two leaders are enjoying dinner with their wives. this is a traditional hibachi dinner. earlier they spent time at in a sumo tournament you were talking about, the crowd giving a very warm reception to president trump when he presented that president trump's cup to the grand champion of the tournament. the president telling reporters at this dinner that he had always wanted to see a sumo match in person and that he is having a great time here in japan. him and shinzo abe played golf earlier in the day. one japanese official telling cnn that this was an opportunity for the two of them to build even stronger bonds. they already have a pretty strong relationship, a good foundation. a lot of that has to do with shinzo abe's efforts to sort of court president trump. remember a couple months ago
president trump talked about the letter that abe wrote him and that he nominated him for a nobel peace prize. the two men have frequently met bonding over golf with abe presenting president trump with some really fancy golf clubs. president trump at dinner did talk about the maybe event coming tomorrow and that is the meeting with emperor naruhito, the first time any foreign leader is meeting the new emper emperor, a significant moment for the two countries, one that underscores the importance of the alliance, not only in terms of security but also economically here in asia. >> all right. boris sanchez for us there in tokyo, thank you. earlier president trump tweeted something that contradicted his own national security adviser. and seems to downplay something that often puts the people in japan a bit on edge. he said that north korea fired off some small weapons which disturbed some of my people and others but not the me. i have confidence that chairman
kim will keep his promise to me, but japan has good reason to be disturbed when north korea test files missiles here. this map shows the most recent test launch. the missiles landed in the sea, but not always so close. some of north korea's test missiles have flown over japanese territory in the past and again, that is very unnerving to the people there. the maui hiker who lost more than two week -- was lost for more than two weeks rather says she chose life over death. >> people that know me, people that don't know me, all came together just of the idea of helping one person make it out of the woods alive. >> we'll share her survival story and how she made it out with only minor injuries. also, an officer and suspect shoot at each other and despite coming nearly face-to-face, both survived. we have a look at two videos that show the moment of the ambush. and later, the vice

weeks is recovering in the hospital this morning. >> and her doctors are mystified really at how well she's doing. they say she is doing amazing. paul row can then as her story. >> it has been the toughest days of my life and it's beencan the. >> it has been the toughest days of my life and it's been really significant spiritual journey that i was guided on. >> reporter: a voyage that man today eller described from her hospital bed. >> there were times of total fear and loss and wanting to give up. and it did come down to life and death and i had to choose. and i chose life. >> reporter: eller got spotted by rescuers and hoisted out of the maui paradise friday.
eller lost her shoes set out to dry in a flash flood, lost her ability to walk properly when she broke a bone in her leg. but hope was not lost. >> that was not expected. that was not expected. you can cry now. it is awesome. you got a good memorial day now. >> i'm crying like a baby. >> the way the community of maui came together, people that know me, people that don't know me, all came together just under the idea of helping one person make it out of woods alive. it just warms my heart. >> reporter: this yoga instructor and physical therapist shed almost a pound a day, 15 pounds total. her doctor expressed surprise ha and relief at how well she looked. >> tears came down because we've all been following her story. >> reporter: this physician explained how the model patient survived on river water and what food she could pick. >> eating fresh fruits from the
tree, trying to keep her nutrition up. she was very well educated in that and she knew what to take and managed to stay well hydrated. >> she's a trooper, a real warrior. i had no doubt if anybody could make it through it, it was her. >> reporter: amanda eller fought for her life and won, armed with undying spirit and true grit. pa pa paul, cnn, los angeles. multiple people have been shot during a neighborhood gathering. police don't know the exact number of people injured yet. >> all the victims have been taken to local hospitals. it all started a little after 9:00 last night. police say shots started when they were on the scene investigating a traffic disturbance. we'll keep you updated on the story as we learn more. i'm sure you've heard that it has been a pretty deadly climbing season on mt. everest.
we're learning that one of the mou mountain ne mountaineers posted a warning just days before they died. and next, what cory booker says he needs to see before impeachment of the president. you don't need to go anywhere dad, this is your home. the best home to be in is your own. home instead offers personalized in-home services for your loved ones. home instead senior care. to us, it's personal.
good morning to you. the president's lawyers have reached an agreement with two house committees over their attempt to get president trump's financial records. >> according to a court document and a source familiar with the agreement, the lawmakers will hold off on enforcing subpoenas on the two banks putting the issue on hold until an appeals court can make a decision. >> earlier this week a new york judge refused to block the subpoenas that started one week of deadline for the trump team to find a way to stop the financial information from being released. >> while on his trip to japan, president trump responded to a setback in federal court friday. a federal judge blocked him from tapping defense department funds to build parts of his u.s./mexico border wall. >> in a tweet he called it a ruling against border security. he called the federal judge an activist obama appointed judge and said that his administration is appealing the ruling. >> with a single tweet responding to north korea's latest missile test, president
trump has put himself at odds with his own security team and his hosts in japan. he tweeted north korea fired off some small weapons which disturbed some of my people and others, but not me. i have confidence that chairman kim will keep his promise to me. he also went on to say that he smiled when he called swamp man joe biden a low iq individual and worse, perhaps that is sending me a signal. joining me to discuss, an editor at the washington examiner and also julian zelizer. gentlemen, let's talk about the north korea half of this tweet. julian, policy versus the actual missile here which is a concern for japan obviously. the missile -- tpolicy first. let me read for you what john bolton said just hours before the president sent that tweet. he wrote this, said this rather -- in terms of violating
u.n. security security council resolutions, there no doubt broke that. trump and shinzo abe will talk about making sure the integrity of the security council resolutions are maintained. no doubt. who is the outlier here, is it hawkish bolton away from the rest of the security apparatus and the president or is the president out of is it even with h -- out of step with his sflaiks. >> i thiadministration about. >> i think the president is out of step and this is another provocation in a long line of them.question always remains what to do. here the president is something of a mystery. bolton has been much more clear in terms of his preference of using military force. but the continued use of missiles goes against the promise that north korea made. and i think that is pretty clear at this point. >> so japan has pushed for tougher policy for north korea.
this personal confidence the president tweets about is obviously not shared by abe. what is an attempt at reassurance while he is in japan mean for the prime minister? >> that is a very good question. we're not entirely sure what the president's stance is in terms of reassuring the japanese prime minister and japan as a whole in terms of making sure that u.n. security council resolutions are enforced. but with respect to how trump has been approaching north korea, that goes very similar to the way that president obama approached iran. they want a deal to be successful and they are willing to ignore a lot of the transgressions that both countries are committing with respect to north korea firing short range missiles or even torturing, imprisoning and leading to the eventual death of otto warmbier. so these are things that trump has to come to grips with. and he does have to have a strong hand in dealing with chairman kim, but at the same time, he can't be like siding
with him while dunking on the former vice president joe biden at the same time. >> so it is also important to say when the president says these small weapons, short range missiles are a threat to japan. so to say this while in japan, it is not something that goes without disturbing the prime minister. >> right. it is dismissive of the security concerns that both japan and south korea have. because it is not like missiles have just been fired at japan. south korea has basically been under threat for the last 50, 60 years since the armistice between the united states and north korea happened in the early '50s. so basically what we're looking at here is if trump is trying to actually get a deal here, he can't get a bad deal. obviously that would hurt americans and japan and south korea. but he has to really understand that kim jung-un, his last line of defense is having these nuclear weapons and developing them as a way of getting attention. so long as he has those, he is
at least at the table with the united states. and if he backs away from that, they basically have nothing. >> so julian, i want to come back to stateside here. house democrats will likely hear from constituents, one way or the other, about impeachment. and you have a piece up on cnn.com arguing that nancy pelosi is making a big mistake on impeachment. and it is not just resisting the call, you make a broader point. so what is the mistake? >> the mistake is following partisan incentives and thinking about partisan interests above what is best for the democracy. i argue that republicans made this mistake by putting protecting the president ahead of the very obvious an abuses that they saw in their time as majority. and i think the way that pelosi is thinking about it is what is best for the party in 2020 and
trying to figure out how it will unfold politically as opposed to looking at obvious and blatant misuses of presidential power that are taking place. on some level, i think that is how the party has to make these decisions in terms of do you start impeachment proceedings. and there are many democrats who are concluding this is so egregious by not doing this, in some ways the democrats become complicit in normalizing this kind of presidential behavior. >> and you talked about 2020 there. we're seeing what appears to be a shift from at least one 2020 candidate. this is democratic presidential candidate senator cory booker, the first sound bite is in his conversation with david axelrod about two weeks ago and then the second sound bite is in response to a question from a voter yesterday. watch. >> so you are open to the idea
that impeachment still may be -- >> first of all, i'm a senator so i don't -- >> i understand that. but i won't give you that cheap out. >> write stahere i stand right want to see the unredacted report. i won't make the decision on what is best for my presidential campaign. i'll make the decision on the gravity of what is at stake, what is best for the country. i've never seen this kind of obstruction. we have to provide oversight and i'm stunned that the president is flaunting and not just democratic traditions but the intention of the constitution. >> i know you are on skype so maybe you didn't hear the second one. he said if we continue to see the president not let the investigation go through, then he will support starting an
impeachment inquiry. is this still a difficult call for these top two tier presidential candidates or is this becoming easier now over the last couple of weeks? >> it is always a difficult call. it is difficult politically because you worry about you how it will unfold, but more importantly, this is a mechanism of last resort. and it is proper for every politician to think of it that way. so it should always be difficult. but that doesn't mean it should never be used. and i think what you are hearing certainly within the democratic caucus and a handful of republicans is not only do the contents of the mueller report and other kinds of investigations really lead to troubling conclusions, but how the president and his administration have essentially rejected the idea of oversight since that came out are forcing their hand. and so it is always difficult. but i do think we are very close to democrats possibly going in
that direction. >> all right. we'll see if speaker pa about low ci pelosi shifts her position. thank you both. vice president mike pence delivered the commencement address this weekend at the united states military academy. this is a historic class at west point. the class of 2019 is the most diverse class ever in terms of both race and gender. west point graduated the most african-american and hispanic women in its history. and the vice president praised the class for its diversity. and also giving them a reality check. >> it is a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for america at some point in your life. you will lead soldiers in combat. it will happen. when that day comes, i know that you will move to the sound of the guns. do your duty. and you will fight. and you will win. >> the vice president also told
the graduates that they are joining an army that is better equipped and better trained than at anytime in the nation's history. concerns are growing over climbing conditions on mt. everest and there is a tragic twist, a climber posted a warning just days before his own death. what he said about the number of people planning to make that dangerous trek. first though, a comedy special that is bigger than both sides. which sides? colin quinn, red state blue state, premieres tomorrow at 9:00. here is a preview. >> this is comedian colin quinn. you know him from snl's weekend update, mtv's remote control, and comedy central's tough crowd. and now he's coming to cnn with red state blue state. >> anybody can grow up and become president. they weren't kidding on that one. >> the comedy special based on his hit off broadway show.
the critics were impressed. colin takes aim at both sides. >> russia paid history perfectly. from day one, they go we're [ bleep ]. >> with his signature mix of history, social xhep takcomment pop culture. >> if you could name 20 great speeches, but you can't. there has been like five. the john f. kennedy speech and next three were monologues on the batch already. >> colin quinn, red state blue state, cnn's first comedy special premieres tomorrow at 9:00. >> sometimes you just got to laugh at it all. be sure to watch red state blue state premiering tomorrow at 9:00 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. there must be something you can do... son.. my father is going. my brothers too. i'd rather die than stay... son, you can't. your heart's not strong enough. my heart is as strong as any. ♪

released videos that show a gun bralgts betwe battle between a man and an offic officer. both survived, but there is a go good chance you will find this video disturbing. [ gunfire ] >> it shows them chasing the suspect on foot and suddenly you see another man come into view and open fire. now, this surveillance does give
us a better view of the gunman appearing to ambush that officer. it happens moments after his partner and the original suspect they were chasing rushed by. the officer was able to fire back. both the officer and the suspect were struck but they survived. you know, you probably have seen this story, but it has been really a deadly climbing season on mt. everest. at least nine people have died this month. >> and we're learning one of those victims was concerned about climbing conditions days before his death. >> an interesting climb. to my left, we can see everest. >> the british climber robin haines fisher posted this video to instagram on may 13th prepping for the trek. he where rote i'm hopeful my den to go for the 25th will mean
fewer people unless of course everyone else plays the same waiting game. sadly he died yesterday from what appeared to be altitude sickness. the death toll is not unusual for mt. everest, but it has been viking to see images of what is being described as a traffic jam of climber waiting to reach the summit. alexander field has more on the dangerous adventure seekers are facing. >> reporter: for donald cash, it was the final frontier, the summit of mt. everest, crowning achievement for the 55-year-old who had met his life long goal, reaching the top of every mountain on every continent. but it would be his few last minutes. cash died of high altitude sickness. >> he fell on the way down just below the summit. and then they kind of carried him down, helped him down a little ways and then he kind of took his last breaths.
>> reporter: on the same day during her descent, this woman took her final breaths. she had trained for six years. she had trekked for 25 years and she was an avid marathoner. her son says that she collapsed and died while caught in the human traffic jam coming down the mountain. a picture taken on the day of their deaths may 22, shows a long line of trekkers on the ridge of the summit in an area known as the death zone. it has raised concerns about the possible dangers of congestion on everest. >> i think you would have to be foolish to say that that waiting at such high altitude isn't having an impact on the numbers of deaths that we're seeing. >> reporter: the tourism board says more than 200 ascended on may 22 after a bad patch of weather cleared after giving climbers a key opening to reach for a dream. but the board says that claims that congestion contributed to
deaths are baseless. s cab of the cash is where cash's final resting place will be. it is where most of the bodies remain. climbers who continue to inspire others to dare to try to reach that height. >> he did make it. he actually summited. >> reporter: alexander field, cnn, new york. a college coach once fired for allegedly allowing sexual assault to run rampant on his team will now be coaching high school football. details and reaction to former baylor coach art briles' new job. etsy is the place to find new favorites. the things we hold on to. sold by real people and made for all of life's moments. our belongings don't just show what we care about. they show who we are. shop etsy.com

remember former head coach for baylor football who was fired in 2016 because of a smau sexual assault scandal? he has a new i don't thinew job. >> art briles will be coaching high school football in texas. coy wire is here. >> yeah, the decision to hire him certainly a controversial one. we'll show you video of the official introducing briles to some players and others friday night.
>> guyguys -- >> applause filling the room at mt. vernon high school, this is east of dallas. the superintendent said that briles, quote, brings with him a wealth of not only football experience but also life experience. he is passionate about investing in the lives of young people and helping them succeed both on the field and in life, unquote. briles took baylor university to unparalleled success a its football coach, but in may of 2061, he was fired after an independent investigation showed a fundamental failure by officials to respond adequately to sun to students' allegations of sexual assault some of which involved players. briles struggled to get jobs since then. he took a coaching position in italy in 2018. according to espn, briles said in a statement friday, he is looking forward to returning to his roots as a high school coach in texas. now, baltimore ravens quarterback robert griffin iii won a heisman trophy at baylor
and he congratulated his former coach and said i understand why it is not always a good look to support someone tied to a scandal, but i've been praying that he gets a second chance to prove himself and i'm hoping people will give him a second chance to prove what happened isn't who he is. while some support the hiring, there is plenty of backlash. an opinion piece callsifecta of incompetenc incompetence. and one woman tweeting as survivor of abuse, i'm terribly upset, my heart is hurting for all the baylor victims. you are not alone. many in our town do not support this decision. i won't stand by and ignore it. more to come surely in these next few days. >> coy, thank you. spacex is hoping to deliver cheap internet to every part of the world. a dedicated mission for an internet constellation blasted

internet for everyone and all over the world. spacex hopes so. that is their goal with their mission starlink. 60 satellites in space with the idea that they will beam cheap internet all over the globe. >> thursday spacex launched the satellites in to orbit, their first dedicated mission to create an internet constellation as they are calling it. joining us to discuss, leroy choi, our favorite retired astronaut. good to have you. let's start here because this sounds like a great idea, to launch these satellites all over to provide internet to everyone. is it realistic? >> i think it is. i mean, this is obviously just the first step launching 60 satellites out of what is intended to be about a 12,000 satellite constellation. and so pretty exciting that it
appears to have gone off without a hitch. this is the largest payload launched by a falcon 9, a novel packing system and deployment system that has never been used before. each satellite sounds very sophisticated as well. about 500 pounds each. very sophisticated ion thrusters, active collision avoidance system. so very exciting to see how this will all progress. >> as i understand it, this was a test launch and they are planning to -- their hope is to launch thousands i think up to 12,000 of these. and it made me wonder first of all how plausible is that and is there a risk or downside to having that much hardware flowing around the lower levels of the atmosphere? >> ambitious plan to be sure. the plan is to launch about 12,000 satellites in to this constellation. there is going -- they will be
up at about 550 miles, which is not too much higher than the international space station. so you wonder a little bit about debris or collision. but i think that these are all things that can be -- [ inaudible ] >> oh, did we lose him? he is in singapore by the way, which we didn't realize when we were told we were doing this segment. so he is via skype. we tried. we got some good information though. >> he is back. and that is amazing video if we can put that back up. that string of the first 60 satellites and imagine 12,000 of these going up. is this the new space race? we've talked a lot on this show between the u.s. and china going back and forth, but now you have the private company. amazon may want to get in. one web may want to get in it as well.
>> absolutely. there are big players. airbus has been looking at this. google, facebook looking at ways to get global coverage of internet. obviously good for their businesses as well. but this is an exciting time and i think these small sats, you are seeing a lot of potential. the question about debris, of course they are at an altitude just above the international space station, so debris is a concern. you are putting more objects up there. but if you can keep track of everything and do collision avoidance, i think that it can be solved. >> all right. leroy choi, a little lo always you. thank you so much from making the effort from singapore. >> my pleasure. great to be with you. listen, ahead next hour, we're talking with the mayor of el reno, texas. >> yes, two people there have died after a tornado hit overnight. stay with us for that conversation. i didn't have to run for help.
