effort and all individual pieces of the bill, except an increase to federal unemployment benefits and a hike to the minimum wage in an interview with cbs news set to air in full before the super bowl on sunday, a clip released tonight shows president biden saying he believes the minimum wage hike might not survive in the final bill and that he's prepared to negotiate who actually gets the direct checks that's been a key area of concern for republicans. shep >> kayla, thanks he said more than that we'll have it for you in just a bit. february is shaping up to be a critical month in the biden administration's push to get more shots in arms next week the fed's report they'll send a million doses to thousands of pharmacies across the country. a few days later, the pentagon is set to deploy troops to california to help with vaccination efforts. and a day after that, one of the first government-backed mega sites will open in oakland

as we reported, the white house covid response team announced it will use the defense production act. the administration says it's using the wartime power to help ensure pfizer has the equipment it needs to scale up vaccine production >> we're leveraging an important power of the defense production act, the ability to ensure that supplies and materials critical to our national defense are going to areas of greatest need. >> but with the massive mobilization that the defense production act creates, there are trade-offs with the possible consequences, here is cnbc's meg tirrell >> reporter: denise and herman live thousands of miles apart, separated in age by two decades, but both have suffered from a th rare condition known as thyroid eye disease. it's painful >> it's a constant cramping, tugging, pulling, redness, inflammation >> reporter: and can cause the eyes to bulge. in severe cases it can lead to blindness. but a drug called tapazole changed all of that. >> it reduces the need to have

minnesota's mike osterhome tells cnbc there will likely be other shortages, but they're so hard to predict without knowing which companies have been the object of the order >> it broke my spirit because all this time, you know, there's one thing between getting something to ease your pain and getting treatment, something that works >> reporter: and, shep, you know, a source familiar with the covid response team told us they are uniquely sensitive to the impacts of using the defense production act on the supply chain, and everybody we talked with from the company to the patients said they understood the need to prioritize covid vaccines, but they also say their health and their eyesight are important too. shep >> and then there's the johnson & johnson vaccine. how soon could the fda greenlight its shot? >> reporter: well, we got a key date last night, february 26th that is when a meeting of outside advisers will take place to evaluate this vaccine if they vote positively and the fda follows the same pattern
4:09 am
from pfizer and moderna, we could see this vaccine powe ten chally on the market in early march. but, shep, the timeline, 22 days between this application and this meeting, is a little longer than with pfizer and moderna so raising a few eyebrows >> yes indeed. thanks so much, meg tirrell. one of the most iconic stadiums in all the world transformed into a mass vaccination site hundreds of people lined up in the rain this morning, cold rain, outside yankee stadium the site can handle 15,000 vaccinations in its first week, they tell us, but the new york governor, andrew cuomo, says only people from the bronx, not the boroughs, can be allowed to get the vaccine there. he said it should help tackle racial disparities in the vaccine rollout. here's nbc's isa gutierrezey, se early. they were excited. >> reporter: hey, shep people were here early, they were excited and relieved to get appointments here at yankee stadium, a place they know and

4:31 am
senate impeachment trial, and the former president's defense team has made it clear he will not testify or even provide written statement about the deadly capitol riot that he's accused of inciting. some democratic senators say that's actually a good thing they say the former president testifying would be a terrible idea and turn the trial into a dog-and-pony show. hallie jackson now how will the second impeachment trial be different from the first? >> a couple of ways, shep. you've got sort of the logistical piece of it, right? it's expected to be, frankly, faster it's not going to be long and drawn out. that at least is the expectation from a lot of the democrats and republicans that we've been talking to it will be much more condensed, partly because democrats are conscious they still have president biden's agenda to deal with in the senate, so they don't want to spend all of their time and weeks and weeks wrapped up in this trial you can also, you know, look court. instea it's different personnel
4:32 am
specifically the person presiding, no longer of course the chief justice of the supreme court. instead, it will be senator pat leahy. and you will also have a bit of a different dynamic in this instance when you talk to folks on both sides of the aisle, here's the thing that you hear. from democrats you hear accountability, right, they want to try to hold former president trump accountable for what they see as his incitement of the insurrection on january 6th. on the republican side, you also will hear the word "partisan show," which, i guess, is two words, but the idea that it is clear that some 45 republican senators, the de facto jurors in this instance, do not think it's actually constitutional to try to convict somebody who is no ten attorneys thata presiden who has now left office. so to them the outcome seems fairly preordained and i'll tell you one other difference you're going to see a much smaller defense team for donald trump. last time he had something like ten attorneys that were out there defending him. you remember we saw pam bondi, allen dershowitz, others in
4:33 am
addition to pat cipollone and dave sekulow this time it's going to be two attorneys. it's going to be another lawyer, a third lawyer who will be presenting arguments, shep >> all right. so cbs news just released a clip from president biden's interview with norah o'donnell it's that annual interview that whatever network is hosting the super bowl, they get an interview with the president they asked about whether the former president should get intelligence briefings let's play and get your reaction here we go. >> should former president trump still receive intelligence briefings? >> i think not. >> what's your worst fear if he continues to get these intelligence briefings >> i'd rather not speculate out loud i just think that there's no need for him to have that intelligence briefing. what value is giving him an intelligence briefing? what impact does he have at all other than the fact he might slip and say something. >> hallie, i've never hear anything like that ever. >> totally newsworthy, shep.
4:34 am
it really is and that is partly because of the reason that president biden gave in that interview he told norah o'donnell it's because of donald trump's erratic behavior unrelated to the insurrection, right? separately the piece of this is, you know, former presidents typically get this as a tradition, as kind of a convention it's happened time and time again in the past that they have the option to be able to receive these intelligence briefings what you started to hear toward the end of the former president's term and even since the inauguration have been top intelligence officials who are raising the very same concerns that you heard reflected from president biden. some of them, you know, members of congress like adam schiff, for example, who, of course, is on the intelligence committee saying that he didn't think that it should be done. sue gordon, though, served under donald trump, right? she was part of the dni, the office of the director of national intelligence under the trump administration, even she says that she did not think that was a good idea. clearly president biden is
4:35 am
making the calculation that the benefit of continuing on with this tradition is outweighed by the risk that donald trump could let slip a really important state secret, shep >> hallie, thank you so much so how popular is the former president's impeachment outside of washington? steve kornacki on the numbers tonight. steve, what does the public think? >> well, shep, let's take a look here, compare the politics of the current impeachment of the former president with the last one. so right now if you average together all the polling out there on this question of what should the senate do, trump's at that is something that's different. it's a little bit di been impeached should he be convicted on average 50% are saying, yes, donald trump should be convicted in the senate trial. only 43% saying acquit that is something that's different. it's a little bit different than it was a year ago. the last time donald trump, then the sitting president was impeached on the question of what the senate should do, it was deadlocked then. now it's small, but there clearly is more support for conviction than acquittal. the thing that's the same, though, the thing that hasn't changed when it comes to the
4:36 am
politics of this, it's this. among republican voters, it still remains the case, overwhelming nearly 90% saying acquit donald trump. fewer than 10%, single digits, say to convict him we saw how those politics guided republicans a year ago a lot of reason to think something similar playing out right now, shep. new round of stimulus, steve. what's the polling say about the popularity of that >> so take a look at this. here's a new quinnipiac poll out this week. biden has this nearly $2 trillion stimulus proposal, and you see here, when you put it in sort of broad terms like that, wide support, about two-thirds, only 24% say they oppose it. again, sort of the broad contours of this plan. this is one of the things we've talked about when a new president comes in, generally that's the best period for that president when it comes to polling, when it comes to putting the agenda out there this what you see right here this is joe biden's approval
4:37 am
rating two weeks into his presidency he's over 50%. that is a contrast to donald trump two weeks into his presidency it's that honeymoon period we talked about it's got biden over 50%, and it's got strong support initially for his proposal. >> all right there's your politics lane. you have this new lane -- well, i guess it's a lifelong lane, but now it's on tv we've been watching you on nbc on football. what's your take what are you seeing and predicting >> here we go. the big one sunday, and of course look, the quarterback matchup, brady and mahomes let's just look at brady here. this is his tenth super bowl here you go, here are all ten of them the chiefs right now this is what's interesting this is from our friends at pro football focus this is the win probability for brady's teams in every one of the super bowls, the chance going in that his team was going to win and, of course, this is what happened and what jumps out at me is look at this brady's the underdog in this super bowl the bucs are the underdog on sunday, a 41% chance to win.
4:38 am
that's what they're given by the analytics folks. last time brady was an underdog in a super bowl, you got to go all the way back to his very first super bowl with the pats against the rams when they pulled off that big upset. interestingly, look at this, when brady was a huge favorite against the giants back in 2008, he lost. when he was a huge underdog, he won, and now for only the second time in his career he's an underdog again in the super bowl >> that giants loss was my favorite loss ever, i'm positive of that. that was a very -- tyree, that was a good day, steve kornacki have a great weekend >> you, too. enjoy the game. >> we'll see you on super bowl sunday maybe >> you got it. another arrest now connected to insurrection day. agents raiding the home of a woman feds say helped direct the attack cut off from their country, desperate for business, how one small community came together to create a lifeline of solid ice and bring people back. and a breach of security at the base that holds air force one. the pentagon now taking drastic actions and facing some very tough questions. e very

hundreds of millions of fans hundreds of millions of fans watching around the world, tens of millions of dollars spent on tv ads, and the hottest stars in the music business performing at halftime with a state-of-the-art production that sort of spectacle would have been hard to imagine during the first bowl in 1967 it settled the score between the nfl and afl who had just merged into one league, and in the years following, the super bowl grew into an international spectacle. despite that change, the game has always featured one constant, jerry green. he's a hall of fame sports journalist who's covered every single one we spoke to the 92-year-old from tampa where he is gearing up for his 55th super bowl sunday. >> i covered super bowl 1 as part of my beat job. b job
4:54 am
back the back then it was basically like another sunday football game in we went to the the fall of the season we went to the players' rooms for interviews vince lombardi had his packers far out of town. the way the thing has grown is just amazing it became such a big event the world's largest sporting event. i believe the super bowl has defined my pro career. it's been the main event i look forward to it every year. when i see the ball kicked off, i will probably breathe a bit of a sigh oh, boy, here i am i made it. >> got to love it. we asked jerry who he thought is the best quarterback ever, and he said while he has great admiration for tom brady, a young baltimore colt by the name of johnny unitas was the best he ever saw play.
4:55 am
and when tom brady won his first super bowl with the pats in '02, patrick mahomes was in kindergarten now the star quarterback is 25 years old and going for back-to-back titles, but to do that, he'll have to beat 43-year-old brady, who's already hoisted the lombardi trophy a record six times let's bring in joe theismann a super bowl champion himself. joe, it is an honor to have you, thanks there was montana, marino in super bowl xix, but has ther ever been a quarterback matchup, in your opinion, than this one >> shep, absolutely not, and the reason why is because of the age differential i mean, patrick's going for his second in back to backs. tom just seems like all he ever does is play in super bowls. when you really stop and think about it, this is his tenth super bowl there's only been 55 he's played in 18% of the super bowls that have been played. it's such a great story between
4:56 am
the grizzled veteran, who' probably going to go at least another couple of years, and the young kid who looks like the heir apparent. >> i'm so excited for it the bucs are, of course, the first team to play in their home stadium. this has been talked about over and over again how big of an advantage is that even with these crowd restrictions >> i don't think it's necessarily that big an advantage because kansas city has basically stayed home. tampa bay is at home, so both of the teams have had an opportunity to be able to control the environment that they're in in the hopes of making sure that nobody late shows up with covid and all of a sudden something has to change so i don't really see it as that big an advantage right now they're going to have to play the game both of these teams have played before they understand it they understand the preparation that they have to get ready for, and i'm excited as you are i think it's really going to be one heck of a great football game >> so often it comes down to turnovers. we all know that but what are you going to be watching for in the way of who
4:57 am
can make their game plan work, and after that, who wins >> it's interesting, shep, because everybody talks about tom brady versus patrick mahomes, but they aren't playing one another. tom brady is playing the defense of the kansas city chiefs. patrick mahomes is playing the defense of the tampa bay buccaneers so it really boils down to what the coordinators are going to be able to do i think patrick's legs give them an advantage, and tom's going to have to be as hot as he's ever been i'm going to pick kansas city in this one >> you d >> are you. >> yes, i am >> you don't want to say, well, that would be the end of it all because you never know i don't know tom brady says he can go to 46 i don't doubt him. who would doubt him anymore? >> no one would. the thing is, and the one thing i look at at quarterbacks, he hasn't lost his fastball that's the biggest thing if you have the ability to be able to throw the ball like tom has done and the protection that he gets, 45 is conceivable i did a thing with him four years ago and i asked him how
4:58 am
long he wanted to play because he was like 39 i said, how long he said 45 and you know what? i wasn't surprised i'm not surprised right now. he's not going away quietly. >> yeah, i'm not either. mighty impressive, even though he was a pat joe theismann, an honor. thank you again. 40 seconds left on a race to the finish president biden and democrats moving forward without republican support as they try to pass a massive covid relief package. and just four days left until the senate impeachment trial, the former president's defense team announcing that he will not testify or provide a statement about the deadly capitol riot that he's accused of inciting. and now you know the news for this friday, february the 5th, 2021 have a great super bowl weekend, and we'll see you back on monday on cnbc. get yours. before the pandemic. another burger truck?
