tv   The Ingraham Angle  FOX News  April 3, 2020 11:00pm-12:00am PDT

11:00 pm
super tuesday. a lot has changed in the last month. never forget the words land of the free, home of the brave. let your heart not be troubled. laura is next. >> laura: i'm laura ingraham and this is "the ingraham angle." in moments, my medicine cabinet ways weighs in, why some are so dismissive of treatments that are currently working for doctors in their covid-19 patients. nancy pelosi is appearing everywhere lately. she's not letting this pandemic go to waste. my question is, what's the g.o.p. going to do to stop her in this next phase of spending? congressman andy biggs will tell us. plus big brother meets big tech. does that sound like a nightmare to you? my question is what does google's new covid-19 tracking project mean for your civil
11:01 pm
liberties? it's not good. harmeet dhillon and alex parents are going to sound off. given the disastrous unemployment, a heartbreak, and how much longer can our country stay under this lockdown? steve forbes has some thought-provoking analysis on that. plus big city mayors begging criminals not to misbehave? yeah. you are not going to believe with some want the this is a america and shut down, day 18. something tonight that's a little different from what i've done previous nights. i'm just going to share some stories. the top oncologist at one of manhattan's respected hospitals called me today, didn't know him but knew him by reputation. worried about the ongoing crush
11:02 pm
of patients at some hospitals. 304 people more have died since yesterday and another 1200 deaths nationally. what he really wanted to talk about was another disturbing part of the story that's getting, frankly, very little attention. namely that with everything going on with covid, not this is one of the best stocks in new york telling the story tonight. it was a long conversation. he said, say, for example, a parkinson's patient needs the batteries in his brain stimulated a change. is this essential surgery to install a new battery? maybe you know, but going without it has a terrible effect on his quality of life. then there is the patient who puts up getting that intermittent pain in his lower abdomen checked out because he's afraid of covid exposure at the
11:03 pm
doctor. it turns out to be in malignan malignancy. this position wanted to come on tonight to speak about this. ease of seeing this trend, untreated, undiagnosed conditions that are noncovid related. his hospital, by the way, is not close to capacity and also treating covid patients tonight. but the hospital administrator wouldn't give him permission to appear tonight to tell the story. i don't know why. it's an important story to tell. there was another doc in boston who told me hospital staff there are actually being laid off because so much nonspeech 29 medicine isn't happening. you have to make money doing this, right? his boss wouldn't let him appear on the show either. that's too bad. i heard from a flight line hospital in queens, manhattan. the population there is more middle class and has more
11:04 pm
preexisting health problems, so covid is putting more of them in the hospital. also said more patients at this hospital are covid positive, most friends are covid positive. sadly all the elderly patients die if they have to be put on a ventilator. he says that seven patients died there that he knew of just today. they pretty much all had comorbidities, in other words underlying conditions. diabetes, prediabetes, a heart issue, et cetera. he said despite the fact that the infection is spreading rapidly in queens, the hospital where he works is busy, very busy, but not yet overwhelmed. we hope they don't get overwhelmed. they have enough ventilator is so far and enough personal protective equipment, and he expects the peak to come in one week. he says information like this,
11:05 pm
frankly, needs to be put online so we can readily compare the experience of these hospitals to what we've heard as far as projections go. it would be useful to have that. however, from dr. deborah birx, today she said this about questioning models and projections. >> i know we are always saying who knew what, where, when. we get through this, we can look back and ask what happened aware, what does this epidemic look like? when we get through all of this, we can ask the questions about could we have done some piece of this better as a global community? >> laura: i have enormous respect for dr. birx. but perhaps there is a better way to look at it. since we are taking extreme action, really extreme action in response to this virus, it ended up putting millions of americans out of work.
11:06 pm
isn't it better to improve the models now and if we have to question them, question them, even change them, rather than doing so after all the damage is done? it's not about finger-pointing. that's not going to get you anywhere. it's about using the best data as it comes in, the most contemporary data. remember, these models are guesses, and they are based on whatever inputs we get. or whoever the statistician is. what if the data is wrong. we know already a lot of it is incomplete. imperial college already forced to revise its covid projections by many multiples. right now, really smart people of goodwill and art top research institutions including nobel laureates, are in a raging debate on the issue of modeling covid-19 specifically on that thing we would been talking about, the denominator. that's the number of people infected with covid. you have to have the right denominator, at least close to being right, to judge the virus'
11:07 pm
true fatality but we know people are a symptomatically or have mild symptoms who were never tested. we should hear all sides. all input is welcome. finally, a new global survey of thousands of doctors just came out late yesterday. found that their preferred treatment, these are the doctors, forrest b29 patients, drumroll please? hydroxychloroquine o rated hydroxychloroquine the most effective for combating the deadly illness and found that 23% of medical professionals had prescribed the drug in the u.s. far less, this is interesting, than other countries. outside the years, hydroxyl clerk when was equally used for diagnosing patients for mild to severe symptoms. whereas in the u.s., it was most commonly used for high risk diagnosed patients. and in spain, 72% of doctors
11:08 pm
surveyed said they are ready prescribed it. so why -- i've been thinking about this a lot the last couple of days. why the obvious bias against the drug here, again hydroxychloroquine? the cynic in me wonders if it's because big pharma can't make money off of it. remember, it is cheap, it's an old drug that's been around for decades, and it's safe. it's a generic. it's scalable. we can get it quickly and cheaply. that's what you want in a cris crisis. china has a ready done is controlled study of hydroxychloroquine which was very promising. the outcomes in the noncontrolled studies in france were really impressive as well, one of the most renowned epidemiologist in all of europe. he says, you've got to use it. renowned infectious disease specialist dr. steven smith who is group is treating thousands of covid patients describe the amazing results he's getting with hydroxy and extra some
11:09 pm
>> we've been doing so for a wild. no person has received five days or more of the hydroxychloroquine has been intubated. this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic. i'm very serious. >> laura: when he said this, my heart stopped. i thought he meant the beginning of the end. but the pandemic. watching the president, he clearly gets it. >> it's looking like it's having some good results. that would be a phenomenal thing, that we have it's been a supply of it, we order it in the case that it works. he could have some pretty big impacts, so we'll see what happens. >> laura: the president's instants are right on the money here. this drug, it should be added as an additive, prophylaxis by all of our frontline health care professionals and our military and first responders. they cannot socially distance. i bet it ends up being the go to
11:10 pm
in our hospitals as well for all the nurses and staff there. nothing else has worked better when administered early as well as midterm in a patient's fight against the virus. finally about face masks. >> the better part of valor is when you're out and can't maintain the 6-foot distance to where some sort of facial covering. >> laura: what does that mean? the president should wear a mask too? >> are you opposed to wearing one yourself? >> i don't want to wear one myself. it's a recommendation. they recommended. i'm feeling good. >> i'm just wondering if you could tell us more about why? >> i don't choose to appear they aren't mandatory guidelines. >> laura: this went on and on, by the way for it why aren't you wearing a mask -- it's the most ridiculous series of questions on the mask with the president today. you could guarantee tonight that you get rid of the virus and we
11:11 pm
all go back to work if it took, like, wearing an entire hazmat costume or may be a big full chewbacca costume? i'd do it. >> [chewbacca speaking] >> laura: we don't need a lightsaber, my friends. we need a job saver at this point. saving lives, saving jobs with all the best medicine that we have in the middle of an emergency. those are my thoughts at the end of day 18, american shut down. joining me now is cardiologist and ceo of voxel cardiology, also jimmy is dr. deb in the upper dr. debbie, in your city right now there is a clinical trial on hydroxychloroquine as a prophylactic and the treatment. 1500 patients are involved.
11:12 pm
i certainly hope we get clear and transparent data and preliminary data within days of it. >> i'm very excited about this because it's actually looking to see if we can slow the spread of the coronavirus. so far, all of these studies that have come out of france, the one set of come out of china, they are looking at once someone is sick, what we really want to do is prevent people going to the hospital, prevent deaths. this study being done at columbia university medical center, they've already registered as a trial. they are basically looking to see if one person in a family develops coronavirus, can this drug be used for everybody else that lives with that person to try to protect them from developing the symptoms themselves? >> laura: doctor, you have addressed this with your colleagues across the country in
11:13 pm
cardiology and other specialties. tonight, if you had to advise high-level government officials or frontline military responders, doctors, nurses, given what we know in this current situation, should they all be on hydroxychloroquine with physician supervision? >> i think the answer is clearly absolutely yes. let's look at a few facts. we aren't seeing patients with lupus who take plaque we aren't seeingthese individua. i'm not aware of any reported cases and the chinese have actually looked at it. this drug is been around for a long time. it's toxicity is trivial. it's very rare that you get a drug which is both safe and highly effective. you enumerated many of the studies of already been done, but this is a study that's cheap, easily made, scalable. i sent you the manufacturing
11:14 pm
data. i think absolutely, our military needs to be on this prophylactically. all you need is a screening ekg before starting. health care workers need to be on it until both groups actually get antibody tested and we know that an individual who test positive for the antibody actually is then immune from getting the actual covid illness. but i think absolutely we need to do it. the problem is volume of drugs needed. >> laura: scale it up. the president has to use the defense production asked to do it, he should do it. this could keep more people off of ventilators if intervened with early. we shouldn't wait to keep dozing with people. according to all the doctors talking to me. i want to play something from the architect of obamacare, zeke emanuel said this about possible covid treatment.
11:15 pm
>> snake oil salesman come out of the woodwork all the time whether it's vitamin c or chloroquine or whatever. at the moment, we don't have proof on anything. so don't take anything thinking you are protected because that's just garbage. >> laura: doctor, you keep hearing this line, that we have no proof. but that's absolutely untrue. we don't have a button down 1500 person result yet, but physicians all over the world have proclaimed it's there go to drug. do we think physicians are poisoning their patients all over the world in spain, italy, china camille understates by using the drug, or is it working, is it insane what he says? >> i agree. people are using that also intravenously to help with this drug ironically. i will say -- comparing this to snake oil is such an extreme
11:16 pm
statement. if you are talking about something like appendicitis and somebody wants to do something like vitamin c rather than having an appendectomy, the situation where we have a clear-cut answer, something that will treat the problem where people really have good results? that's a little more questionable. what are you selling this patient, is that a safe treatment option? in this case, we have to look at the risks, the benefits, and the alternatives also, and there aren't a lot of great alternatives. there is some promise in terms of the benefits so we should give people choices. >> laura: if it's not going to kill you, which it wants unless you have a couple headed complicated part problem. i mentioned it in the open. hospitals and noncovid conditions. people are putting off looking to get that nagging pain check. i've got a funny twinge not going away, turns out to be something serious later.
11:17 pm
how important is it to keep nons between nine patients at home if possible not coming into the hospital on these kind of treatments? >> every patient has to be examined risk versus benefit. if you are a high risk, you want to be very cautious about going to the hospital. at the same time, you don't want to have a heart attack at home. you need to talk to your doctor and be very upfront about your symptoms, and your doctor should know what the situation is at the hospital. you shouldn't deny, the cost example you gave of the patient whose parkinson's stimulator needs to be had their battery changed, my gosh, if that fails, they may fall and fracture their hip. >> laura: i can tell you. i want people to understand this is not me saying this, this is the vaunted "new york times." headline: "during a pandemic, and unanticipated problem. out of work health care workers,
11:18 pm
forced to cut the pay of doctors, nurses, and other staff." i bring this up because we have to think of the reverberations, the ripple effect that this is having across multiple medical specialties and conditions, doctors. thank you so much. great to have you on tonight. and last night, we warned you about five down my plans to fight the coronavirus pandemic with gps tracking. it's a huge threat and it's apparently is already happening. google is right now tracking your movement and releasing it amid this pandemic. joining us now is harmeet dhillon, attorney and trump 2020 advisory board member. also with me is alex barron's ,author of one of my favorite books in the last two years. tell your children. it's about marijuana and you have to read the book.
11:19 pm
harmeet, google says it's not releasing any identifying personal info, but is not really supposed to make us feel better? don't worry, we aren't going to use your info? >> google has been sued for hundreds of millions and even more in the united states for violating people's privacy. it's been part of their business plan. it's what they do. i have zero confidence that google is going to keep that anonymous, overreaching governments aren't going to try to reach for that information. it's a fourth amendment issue, privacy issue, a civil rights issue, and the next potential one, laura. >> laura: where are all the civil libertarians? they wanted to fight for freedom of the syrians but are dead silent when it comes to our freedoms here. >> down that i want to go back to the models used to forecast the hospital needs. alex, the new york governor cuomo claim to this. >> all the projections say you
11:20 pm
could have an apex meeting 140,000 beds and about 40,000 ventilators. those are numbers. not i feel, i think, i believe, i want to believe. >> laura: one of the models that cuomo has been relying on the claims is called the "ihme" model. it'll need 110782 icu beds, 9,400 vents, but there are 14,800 people hospitalized with 303,071 icu patients, and today cuomo said there hundred 22 patients a day needed vents, which would be far under, of course, the 40,000 apex he predicted. alex, why is the model so far off here? >> the model basically estimated that there was going to be a huge spike in infections, about
11:21 pm
two weeks ago. just as a lockdown was being put in place and that was going to lead to a huge spike in hospitalizations in a way where they drive icu, beds, and ventilator needs. for whatever reason, it looks like the spike didn't really happen. yes, there are a lot of new cases and there is a lot of people dying, and i don't want to downplay that reality. >> laura: of course not. >> if you look at the number of actual new hospitalizations a day, it looks like basically flat for the last ten days or so when the model was projecting that it would increase by as much as four or five fold. so that is why if you look at the university of washington model right now, they are projecting that new york -- this is today, new york is going to have 60,000 people in hospital beds, and that's off by a factor of four. what's so important about that is this was in the last week.
11:22 pm
it's not like somebody made the projection months ago just as the epidemic was starting and it's not like the projecting depends on a lockdown. >> laura: hold on, we are going to head back on this topic but thank you for that. coming up, congress is in recess. shouldn't they come back? don't go away. these days you need faster internet that does all you
11:23 pm
11:24 pm
expect and way more. that's xfinity xfi.
11:25 pm
get powerful wifi coverage that leaves no room behind with xfi pods. and now xfi advanced security is free with the xfi gateway, giving you an added layer of network protection, so every device that's connected is protected. that's a $72 a year value. no one else offers this. faster speed, coverage, and free advanced security at an unbeatable value with xfinity xfi. can your internet do that? ♪
11:26 pm
>> we will probably be moving towards vote by mail. >> and national stay stay-at-home order from the federal government. do you think the president should order one? >> you know, it works. >> laura: well, sur s seeing a lot of nancy pelosi lately. she's been everywhere. a lot of people saying, where the heck is the g.o.p.? everyone is out of session, congress is back at home in their own district shuttering at home, answering republicans are, i don't know, awaiting it to all blow over. is it unfair? maybe it's fair. joining me now is andy biggs of arizona. i've been beating this drum for days. we hear this is a war, we are on the way to having maybe 25% of the country out of work, we've got domestic abuse going up. i'm sure depression, loneliness, despair, homelessness.
11:27 pm
and she's plotting phase for to spend the heck of a lot more money. when are you guys coming back in session? >> we should be putting our own road map now and i'll tell you what it is. we've got to change the paradigm. i am tired of walking and playing on her turf. the reality is she wants to centralize us economy in ways that you and i would find and to them a and most americans would as well. you change the paradigm by changing as much as you can, find the governors for the people out of work, make those states pay for takings, americans want to work, they want to worship, they can't worship in some places. this is really, the first step is to change the paradigm by liberalizing the economy. while i respect that cdc guidelines for taking care of care of people.
11:28 pm
>> laura: congressman, don't mean to interrupt you, but wasn't into the cdc who kind of screwed this up from the beginning, no offense? we have to wait for the cdc, wait for the curve, wait for the apex to come down, goes up, the model changes. most people are like, look, tell me, do i wear a mask, do i wear gloves, if i can get tested of antibodies test, tell me what i have to do so we can get back to work, to solve the problems that are going to be rippling across everyone's lives and help the people who are most vulnerable to this disease at the same time. we can do that. but the republicans have got to start pushing this message. save the people and save the economy. you can do both. >> that's exactly the point i'm trying to make. we can't close up this economy because there are societal pathologies and ramifications for that that are going to ripple for many years to come,
11:29 pm
quite frankly. you are going to see suicides go up which in some places they've already seen suicides go up, child abuse, spousal abuse, drug abuse, all of those things when people invest their life savings and can even get out and work, people need to be able to go out and work. you have to push that, that change the paradigm and that pushes nancy pelosi out of her comfort zone and that's what we have to do if we are going to see this economy surged back and still protect people who have the vulnerabilities that we found. >> laura: we have breaking news just moments ago. "political" has reported that trump has fired the intel community watchdog michael atkinson. we do not know a lot more. thoughts, congressman, o on thi? >> as you know, we've seen tremendous violations of civil rights by abuse of the fisa courts, and i think somebody has to be held accountable. this may be the first of many more people who are on the chopping block. the recent interim report by
11:30 pm
inspector general horwitz indicates that in every one of the cases that they've sampled, there has been abused by the fbi and the intel community. that has got to stop as well for that's an abuse of our civil rights and i just -- i can't tell you, that's one of the things we should be doing. congress is getting back there and cleaning that mess up as well because that's going to have ramifications and probably has had ramifications on people. this is very, very important. >> laura: congressman, we all have to remember, a crisis has to be dealt with. we want to protect people and save lives. we have our civil liberties, constitution to also preserve. after 9/11, we did a heck of a lot of stuff that in the moment felt really good. but then, later on years later, comes in its wake fraud and abuse and we have to think about that now. we are seeing this with the fisa report, the patriot act, some good stuff in there but a lot of stuff that was open for abuse and we are seeing some of those things creep in during this
11:31 pm
covid crisis as well. congressman, i'm glad you're on the job. we want you to come back to washington and confront this policy agenda because this is going to be a massive cram down. thank you so much for being here tonight. >> thanks, laura. >> laura: worst jobs reports in a decade. unemployment rate at a 50 year low until we lost 700,000 jobs in march. that's just the beginning, by the way. it's at 4.4%, but that number is going to jack way up. it's going to be a lot worse and we better start preparing for it and figure out when we had to turn this economy back on. 10 million people now have been laid off just in the last two weeks. these numbers hurt the heart of steve forbes, chairman and editor in chief of the forbes media, dear friend of mine in the program. the president says he wants to and the lockdown on april 30th. i think a lot of people got their hopes up that it would be in a couple of weeks. what happens to our economy if it goes beyond april 30th? >> the devastation is going to
11:32 pm
be very real. you are ready saw in the $10 million the last few weeks, that's going to get worse. we've done the economic equivalent of a medical shut down of the economy, and induced coma. to be more blunt, a sledgehamm sledgehammer. it gets to where economics and health care intertwined. we have to massively stepup this testing. abbott labs has a test to tell you whether you have this horrific disease. they've only produced 5,000 kits. they should be producing 50,000 a day, they should be licensing, the government should push them to do it. other manufacturers, that we should not be doing 100 tests per day, experts tell me we should be doing at least 500,000 a day so we find out who already has immunities. that's good. if you're already had it, you didn't know you had the disease, you thought it was the normal flu -- well, you can go out in the workforce. we've got to do massive testing
11:33 pm
so that by the end of april, we can have a large part of the economy starting to function again. the president has to appoint somebody who is a point person to make sure that these things are done now. otherwise they'll get lost in translation. >> laura: it was going to be april 25th and anthony fauci is not going to like the curve or there will be a blip which means too many people have been outside the house paddle boarding or jogging. somebody was arrested, i kid you not, arrested in malibu, in california, from paddle boarding. this is what's happening in our country. people being arrested for just walking outside or being on the ocean. do you think you'd ever see that in this country, steve forbes? >> absolutely not. the idea you can't go to church, can't do other things. he most americans -- to be when they can't do anything. >> most americans know that when they have to do social distancing, physical distancing to described it, fine, do it.
11:34 pm
if we continue this, yeah, there will be another rescue package, another one needed for small businesses. those are not going to get to the real problem. if you take a sledgehammer to the american economy, it's going to take time to bring it back, it'll recover quickly as long as you have a benign environment which gets to the election. hopefully next year we'll have that benign environment and you'll really see things start to turn. in the meantime, massive testing, emergency testing, get that manufacturing up. we did it in world war ii. we saved 200,000 american soldiers' lives because of the element of antibiotics. that was a crash program pushed by a fellow named vander busch. get it done. >> we have a cheap, scalable, safe drug, hydroxychloroquine -- >> that came out of the same office, that same guy who gave us the antibiotics in world war ii, saved 200,000
11:35 pm
soldiers' lives. also pushed that chloroquine. we got to do it again. push it now. >> the drug companies don't make any money off of it. i do not mean to be the suspicious syndicate, but they don't make money off of generic drugs. they don't make money off of it. the resistance to hydroxychloroquine -- >> here is what you say get it done, here's how you do it, it'll get done. the drug companies know they will not do well if you have rotten economy, so let's get it done. by the way, i think the real push on hydroxychloroquine is the fact that donald trump liked it. if donald trump set the sun came up in the morning they would say no, that's a chinese light bulb in the sky. >> we've got the former fda commissioner throwing cold water on it. you've got fauci -- i love everybody, i love the medical profession. they want a double-blind controlled study on whether the sky is blue.
11:36 pm
at some point we have to put a tourniquet on. >> we've got to push it. these bureaucratic cabins have to be broken. this is an emergency like war time. let's treated as such. >> laura: steve forbes, love having you on. take care of yourself. come back soon. >> thank you. >> laura: up next, biden is back from his bunker and we have the video. you won't believe who could be{h men of the year. we've got friday follies next.

11:40 pm
bread. a warning that president trump called voluntary. president trump making a quiet announcement late friday night, firing michael atkinson, the inspector general who handled the whistle-blower complaint which ultimately led to the president's impeachment trial. this is just the latest of the president's removals, having already fired alexander of inman former ambassador gordon sondland, both who took part in the president's impeachment. i am marianne rafferty. now back to "ingraham." >> laura: it's friday and that means it's time for friday follies. we are joined by the and went on power, now on t to the back of mount raymond arroyo. he took questions, i think it was 4 minutes. >> the vice president spoke from
11:41 pm
his wilmington basement about coronavirus relief checks and so much more. [whistling] all in our "what do you know, joe" segment. >> americans should not wait a single minute so that donald trump can put his signature on a physical check. the white house should have their backs. the backs of the states, not just -- is the responsibility of the white house and the federal government to help. >> laura, he's turning into the rip van winkle of the coronavirus politically. the man is barely there. trump has eight cohours, 8 million people watching those daily press briefings from the white house. poor biting him in his not fighting his way. this is not in a special way to run a presidential race. >> laura: was at his video?
11:42 pm
it seemed a little bit mismatched there. >> i think there may have been some problems there, but biden might be stuck at home, but a certain supreme court justice is still hitting the gym. the court is leaving its gym open to accommodate your pal ruth bader ginsburg and her trainer ryan johnson. the supreme court announced today they are suspending oral arguments for the rest of the term so they can keep the gym open for rbg. that's not why they are spending it. how can the high court be closed for business, laura? how can they do this? >> laura: i worked there many years ago as a law clerk and the idea of the accord closing just seems absolutely preposterous. >> they could do it from their chambers? >> laura: >> narrator: ... they can separate the chairs. it's actually pretty tight, they can move the chairs apart. you are not on top of the justice when you are doing in
11:43 pm
oral argument. you're standing a little bit away, this is just stupid. >> the only way you get your case heard is if you wear workout gear because the only thing open is a supreme court jim apparently. >> laura: ruth bader ginsburg is amazing. we've been talking about the corona come back, all the golden oldie acts returning to try to gin up the youtube hits during the pandemic. there is another octogenarian hitting the workout mat again. >> rbg could join her. a familiar workout revived by jane fonda. >> and lift up and down. and up and down. >> [laughs] >> laura: are you kidding me? >> friday she started doing these fire drill fridays to get
11:44 pm
arrested so she could raise awareness for climate change? with that gone, jane is left to do the workout routine again. i'll be at the vietnam vets want the attending these virtual -- >> laura: no, up only she could get arrested for the five, six, seven, eight with the legs. >> america's mayors have distinguished themselves with this quarantine. but the mayor of houston sylvester turner isn't among them especially when he offered this safety message to his constituents. >> until the coronavirus is resolved, criminals, take a break, okay? stay home, okay? stay home. don't commit any crimes. and that way, they stay safe and out of jail. and police officers will stay safe and can go home to their families. okay? everybody, chill. crooks, criminals, you chill. >> [laughs] this is unbelievable!
11:45 pm
