11:01 am
and mayor mark farrell wrapping up a meeting talking about the thousands of dollars they plan to spend to help out with emergencies of residents in san francisco. when you hear the big money, you ask, where is that money employing? it's $44 million over the next two years, and it will include money going towards 90 new dispamperdi dispatche dispatchers. they're going to put money toward that investment over the next two years, and they also want to upgrade the 911 call center. they want up to grade the dispatch floor with new stations, they want to have protection in place as well for continuous electricity in the case of loss of power. also, there is going to be a medical assistance response team. $1.5 million will go towards this. this will essentially be a 24/7 response team for emergencies not exactly reaching the threshold of needing an
11:02 am
ambulance or fire engine. also there is going to be upgrades to firefighter trucks as well as other equipment, not to mention a watch center that will be in place as a pilot program for comprehensive emergency and disaster coordination around the city of san francisco. now, here's the mayor moments ago explaining why all these investments i just mentioned are needed in the city. >> as mayor of the city, it is one of our core responsibilities as a government to provide public safety to our residents and preparedness for any emergencies that come about. both these issues have and will be a top priority of mine. anyone calling 911 in our city needs to make sure that there's a live person on the other end of the line when they make that phone call. it is sometimes a matter between life and death. >> now, our viewers might remember this. this is a piece from back in january of last year by our investigative unit on issues of response time for emergencies in san francisco, including
11:03 am
ambulances taking twice as long as expected to get to some scenes, or in some cases ambulances were not available at all. now, in may of last year, you also had supervisor aaron peskin and san francisco calling for a hearing addressing staffing shortages at the city's 911 dispatch center after a massive fire knocked out power for 80,000 pg ae customers. it appears the more help the more better, at least over the next two years to deal with this problem. we're live in san francisco. pete suratos. just like pete mentioned, our investigative unit found for one call in january of last year, it took more than 20 minutes for an ambulance to arrive. you should watch our report on nbcbayarea.com. ro serksseanne responding a

11:05 am
>> what's up, deplorable? >> it all stems from an early tuesday morning tweet storm, barr replying to a tweet about the obama conspiracy theory, writing this about former adviser jarrett. jarrett addressed the tweet during a planned msnbc town hall on racism in america tuesday night. >> first of all, i think we have to turn it into a teaching moment. i'm fine. >> hours after tuesday's post, barr tweeted an apology for making a bad joke and declared that she is now leaving twitter. but those tweets did little to calm the firestorm already ablaze. hours later abc canceled the hit show. the network's entertainment president writing, barr's statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values. some are praising the station for dropping the sitcom, while others say the network should
11:06 am
have seen it coming. barr has repeatedly tweeted conspiracy theories about parkland shooting survivors, and most recently chelsea clinton, saying the former first daughter was married to a nephew of george sores. and when she was corrected, she took another shot. she tweeted several more apologies. wanda sykes announced she was quitting the show. the latest season has tackled hot button issues head on. barr has been an outspoken supporter of president trump and brought her politics to the show. >> but most of all, lord, thank you for making america great again! >> reporter: trump has previously praised the show's ratings. at a political rally tuesday night, the president did not address the actress or the tweet. now, just months after barr's return to the spotlight, an abrupt ending to her show and possibly her tv career.

11:09 am
because sessions took part in the campaign. he said at the time it wouldn't be right to be in charge of investigating something that he took part in and, indeed, the law says the same. we know the president has been very angry about that recusal. the president took it farther today tweeting in part, senator sessions, why didn't you tell me before i picked you? there are lots of really good lawyers in the country. he could have picked somebody else and i wish i did. that tweet came after the president watched an interview on fox news with trey gowdy, a tea party congressman, who has been in the past on the president's side. gowdy spoke about jeff sessions. the president agreed with gowdy's comments there. even tweeted some of them he saw on news, but then gowdy said he didn't agree with the presidenlaimt's chat a spy was in the trump campaign. that's a narrative the president has been pushing for some time. he even calls it spygate. but he's not getting much traction. mr. trump didn't tweet anything about that part of the
