Biden Blames Trump for What Happened in Afghanistan
"The White House just came out and released its review of what happened in Afghanistan, which we all know was a complete disaster. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have gotten out. But we didn't need to do it in the chaotic way that we did. That was very, very clear. Well, The White House is admitting, you know, it didn't go quite as planned, but it's interesting how, it becomes a blame game. This is what they do. You see, this is what politicians do, and they're now blaming president Trump and his administration for their exit out of Afghanistan. I mean, it gets very creative here. Let me share with you what the document says. President Biden's choices for how to execute withdrawal from Afghanistan were severely constrained by conditions created by his predecessor. No, no, no, no, no. You see, the deal is, guys, you didn't actually have to get out right away. There was no ticking time bomb on that. I know the plan was to eventually get out, but you didn't have to do it right before the 20th anniversary of 9 11, although we know that was what you wanted to do. From a PR perspective, Joe Biden seemed to think that that was kind of a good thing to do. But from a humanitarian perspective, very, very bad. So many lives were lost. U.S. lives were lost, and instead of recognizing that we really you know what, upped, they're just saying it was president Trump's fault. I'm sorry, but he wasn't in office then.
Nike's Move to 'Erase' Women
"And here we go again, another company trying to erase women, Nike. Is the guilty one this time? The athletic shoemaker has become the latest to sign up Dylan Mulvaney, a transgender who just celebrated his 365th day as a quote girl to join their marketing team and help push their products. We're going to talk about that. Plus, more military troubles, certainly bubbling up. A Chinese aircraft carrier has been seen sailing in the Pacific Ocean waters just about a 186 miles south of Japan, its hanging out near Taiwan, hello, welcome to the Trish Regan show. I am portions of the program where I brought you by the legacy p.m. investments dot com. We are increasingly losing our position in the world, which is truly troublesome. At a time when China and Russia are trying to seemingly team up against the U.S., replace the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency. It's like nobody wants to recognize the real problems instead they're focused on nonsense like, okay, let's all celebrate transgenders and go buy Nike shoes and Bud Light because there's a new spokesperson in town. Look, I'm just going to say something. You know, I get nothing against the guy or girl or whatever he wants to call himself really and truly. But it doesn't need to be in our faces this way in a way that, frankly, especially when you're trying to sell a sports bra is kind of thumbing your nose at every woman out there. And our body parts mind you, because I don't think he's fully finished the transition. I mean, take a look, you tell me. I don't think there's anything to hold up. It really is. Mocking women. They're trying to erase femininity, trying to erase what it means to be female. What it means to be a woman, something that we should all be, us women, very, very proud of. You know, there's an athlete, a college athlete, well known Riley gaines, who's gotten very odd spoken about this. And she said sort of, you know what? This is sending a really, really bad message. It's sending a bad message to all girls and to all women that somehow men can do everything better. Than women and girls. She also spoke with the daily mail daily mail dot com saying that Nike was making a quote sad mockery of what being a woman entails by recruiting Mulvaney to promote its women's sportswear line and you know what she's right. It's motivated by money. You see, because Nike wants to prove to all those people in Washington, D.C., all those people in The White House that they got it, right? They're with the program. They're part of this whole new movement. And so this is their way of doing so. Same as Anheuser Busch. By the way, a few people are standing up to this. Not just the college swimmer there, Riley gains but Travis trit, who is a famous well-known excellent artist, country music artist. I actually listened to a lot of his songs. He came out and said, you know what, I'm going to cancel all Anheuser Busch, sponsorship on my tour. On my country music tour, because he didn't believe in the values that they were promoting by hiring Mulvaney. You also had Kid Rock. I think taking a few shots literally a case of Bud Light. So people aren't happy. This all comes, right? As the country music industry came under fire for its award ceremony, where they had a number of drag queens on stage, and people were like, wait a second, isn't this supposed to be family entertainment? Well, family entertainment these days happens to be that. Because the left wants it to be. And so some people are trying to push back. Again, I get Steve dais on the topic, joining us momentarily, but before I get to that, The White House just came out and released its review of what happened in Afghanistan, which we all know was a complete disaster. I'm not saying that we shouldn't have gotten out. But we didn't need to do it in the chaotic way that we did. That was very, very clear. Well, The White House is admitting, you know, it didn't go quite as planned, but it's interesting how, it becomes a blame game. This is what they do. You see, this is what politicians do, and they're now blaming president Trump and his administration for their exit out of Afghanistan. I mean, it gets very creative here.

Listener: 'We Just Keep Burning Our Heroes at the Stake'
"I got a text earlier today that is so perfect. The texture from the 7 7 four area code, we just keep burning all our heroes at the stake. Today it's the truck drivers. The last few months, it was healthcare workers. My sister a respiratory therapist who was on the front lines giving breathing treatments and intubating severely ill COVID patients even before we knew much about COVID or how it was spread was hailed as a hero. She was out there risking herself to keep people alive. Two months ago, she was fired for not getting vaccinated. It was three weeks before her 20th anniversary at her job, 20 years, the woman was on the front lines. Saving lives. James carville thinks she's a piece of S that he'd like to punch in the GD face. But that's our right carville. They fired her. They kicked her to the curb as the texture's so perfectly put it. We're burning our heroes at the stake.

"I don't think it would have, I don't think Xbox would have any problem in the freaking world, putting Batman over every commercial. Without it happen? No, and I don't think they should. And I think, but here's the other point I want to make there. The Batman games to me because that's my favorite superhero, right? So The Batman games to me exist almost on an on a different plane than like the films and comics do. If that makes sense. Like they're their own experience, like they draw from the world and they are the same. And I know there's people that don't see that. No, and I would argue that I can enjoy them alongside each other, not interconnect. And I think Spider-Man did it perfectly too. The same. And I think that's why I successful. Here's the other reason I think Indiana Jones can work. How many kids today, even know who that character is? That's a good point. So you are you're not. If this was being made 1990, I'm sure. Your points are all great. That's true. I feel like you're right. I didn't even think about that. People like me and older would associate with like the movie franchise. But, you know, the youngins, the kids I teach. Probably not make those comparisons. I mean, honestly, they probably think that John Wick is a Fortnite like character. Well, they don't know like we said on the show last week. They have no idea John Madden is. Right, I've been meaning to ask them. I need to do that. Tomorrow I'm gonna ask them. So in between me yelling at them and making them work. Yeah, so that's a good point. Yeah, I think it's far enough removed and it could almost be the same. I bet there are kids who would think that it like say the game came out early 23, right? Like march. And then the movie comes out, I think summer. It's supposed to be like me. We're June of 23 now. There are three kids who are like, hey, they're making a movie about that game. Yes. If the game came out, sorry, Siri went off. Before, even a few months before, yeah, they're making a movie about the game. Yep. No, that is very valid..
If You Deny Our God-Given Rights, Then You Don't Believe in This Country
"The show after the 20th anniversary of 9 11, there's a whole lot of talk. I heard from some people that you know we should act like we did on 9 12. There's so much more that binds us together in terms of support. And I said No, um That sounds great and You know, I love this country as much as anyone. No one can love it more. You love it as much but not more. I adore everything this country stands for. But no, there's really not a lot that binds us together. Folks. There's not There is one thing that binds us together as a country as a constitutional republic. And that is the very concept of big our God given rights, Freedom and liberty. Not smaller state given right And if you don't believe in that, then you don't believe in this country. You you dumb. Sorry. I don't mean to make you uncomfortable, but it's just true. If you don't believe in that, and you don't believe in freedom and liberty And the consequences that come with it because, yes, there are consequences. Freedom and liberty means you're free to do think I'll use an example That may make some conservatives uncomfortable. I believe in while she wouldn't make him uncomfortable, they believe in rights, But you get the point make him uncomfortable because we know the bias of the media and we know the damage the media does this country. It's extensive. But we understand that in a constitutional republic, the alternative, a suppressed government run media is far worse. So We support the right of the media to be free, and they're free to be stupid, and the media typically sadly takes us up on that offer and complies. And they do a lot of dumb stuff. But the left doesn't seem to get that again. I'm genuinely curious city too dumb to understand the Constitution or they understand it, And they just don't care because they're tyrants. Or is it some blend of the two? And if it is a blend, how many are really the tyrants and how many are really too dumb? Here's what I mean.

It's one of those subjects. You really can't ignore it. And that is the twentieth anniversary of the nine. Eleven attacks. And i do not know where the time goes. I can't believe that it has been an twenty years jack. Any comment on that You're in high school when that happened. Is that correct. I was. I was a junior in high school Just starting couple of weeks after we started in eleventh grade and I was an english class when the second plane hit because the first plane hit and everybody was thinking you know some kind of accident or something or my teacher turned on the news and this is like right after school started putting cable. All the news or in all the classrooms and so my neighbor. My teacher turned on cnn and not even like thirty seconds. After she turned on the second plane hit. Everybody was just quiet or ashore. Dreaming there is nothing just in disbelief of what we're watching And it was so the entire day pretty much there was no. No one was paying attention or teaching. Anything in class in band just sat around and talked with the other trying to figure out you know if we had any family or anybody who is in danger. I had an uncle or still have an uncle who looked at in dc at the time and we were all worried that maybe he was on the subway or something happened like with the pentagon or whatever like what he phoned in a few hours later call. Everyone told me that he was okay. but it was very bizarre day. It was also the second day that i worked at dairy queen up wheel or wrong and my last babies. They fired me without telling the after that. Just put me on the schedule. I'm after not training. But i remember like they're playing it over and over again on tv. And when i rode my bike home Back in the day the gas prices were what around a dollar a gallon at like. In kind of fluctuated no matter relived. But all of them had shot up to like three dollars a gallon and there were cars lined up around the block of every gas station. Bike ride. Home as people were panicking. Not knowing like is going to get cut off or any of and the other thing that really struck me was the days after. I really remember this. 'cause we had You know the cleveland airport and then we also had some some military aircraft that fly over. 'cause you know the place out in toledo now seeing single planer contrary in the sky. Yeah for three or four days afterwards. So you guys kind of look like back in the early nineteen hundreds for about three days the new century it was. I remember that as well. And i was coming home that morning. And it's interesting. I was dating this girl and just by chance. We broke up that morning. Okay and it was built on. We discussed it the the days preceding and unites and that morning. You know what we decided that we were gonna part is friends and we also made an agreement that we wouldn't be calling and sniping each other and all these other things like you often do after break up tonight. I agree totally. So i actually went directly to work from her house that morning and i had the radio on and the radio said we're getting reports of an accident in new york where apparently a plane has crashed into the world trade center. Yeah crazy looking back now that they thought it was an accident for about ten minutes and then an accident anymore. Well new york has a history that a plane hit the you the empire state building years ago. And there's been a some other minor ones mostly private planes of smaller types. So when i first heard that a plane hit the world trade center. I was like oh well that sounds bad but i can't imagine that a jetliner would be that far off course right and i had stopped at a at a coffee shop and i asked the the people at the connor. I said you guys have a tv on or something. i'm hearing. I heard something on the radio that there are a plane had crashed into the world trade center and the these people at the coffee shop. I still remember were. They were clueless. They didn't know what the you know. They didn't know anything. So i got to work and the in front of main entrance where i worked at time there was. Tv's there and everybody was in the front. And i had just arrived after the second plane hit and Everybody was saying though. Well we know now that it was a terrorist attack because it has to be deliberate. Whatever doubt there was the first hit was removed completely with the second crash and The announcer started talking about terrorism. And all these things. And i picked up the phone and i called what was then by ex girlfriend and i said hey look i know. We agreed not to call each other but i really think you should. I really think you should turn on the tv. So she did. And i said. I just got to let you know what's going on here but something really bad happening in the country and it wasn't long after that that The plane hit the pentagon. And then i remember everybody and not that not that what happened in wash in new york was bad enough but after washington got hit. Everybody started wondering okay. Is this going to go on all day. All around the country. You know that was like what's what's going to happen next and it was a very tense of almanac album on remember the The the foot the cell lines were very tied up and of course they weren't near a sophisticated as they are today and They were being. You know obviously overloaded with everybody calling saying hey look at the tv or whatever right so he was very It was a day that i wasn't particularly panicked. A.

And he's like the only face the kind of stands out in the blackened so he's kind of liked that moon like face and i knew that the movie didn't in like this but there's a couple of points where you almost think that the duke is going to like. Hey man i this is crazy. You can't own a person you can't make them. I'm going to be the bigger man here. and i'm not gonna do the fuck fan of the opera bullshit. I'm not. I'm not gonna do.

But it's like her green room essentially or the place where she does her business. This the world's greatest vip room and that the act for sure that's happening in this in this Vip room for sure. That is a great set. I love how you know. It has outdoor space where she can kind of go to the top. The elephant and scott You know a little balcony up there sorting whenever called alec a pergola sort of thing and then there's a scene where like they're her in you and are dancing and singing and they dance and sing their way outside and like they are the most extravagant or the flashiest of sets but it was the one that i thought was coolest. It's the one where like the eiffel tower is about human sized and they are linked giant godzilla creatures just sort of singing and dancing their way across the skyline of paris in the clouds. That's where the magical realism really hard. Yeah that was really cool. Yeah yeah it was it was. It was amazing. And i do that. The elephants said was an. That's the thing is like me. And all that shit i was real or maybe it's like the elephant room wasn't that big but it's kinda is and like all like i guess like the skill been big because they say that there was a spiral. Staircase won the elephants legs. It took you up there. Select that gives you an idea of i will. That's a pretty big fucking legs. So maybe it was that big and it it did have like some kind of balcony out the things ass and it had like this big tower structure shooting on. Its back and widow's walk up there so but but yeah like you take a places already kind of magical and then you layer that little pixie dust. You know there's a couple of times whereas it's funny.

Although i will say the gary oldman should be playing this character every time he was on screen like. I'm half seeing. Gary oldman in this role although i dunno gary oldman definitely pulled off. I don't wanna like also. Gary oldman pitch and one hundred miles. An hour might just deal. Nickel nicole kidman. She might pick the maharaja right. If in full bram stoker mode like fuck go home will be one you got. No power is here. What is it about this character. That makes me think. Gary oldman should be playing him is just because i've seen element and i've seen this and you know you can definitely see how like a really triple. A character actor could knock this of the park. this guy does a really good job he's fantastic. He's yeah he's he's really It's like In in in seeing rain debbie reynolds keeping up gene kelly. But like you can tell. She's the one thousand nine year old just started dancing six weeks ago. And he's like fucking been doing this for years. Like if you got someone in there to kid like rally really fucking hoofer than what how much but also like. I don't know as part of the charm to that. There's a couple of Imperfections it does lead some ambiguity though because like the duke so stupid or he wants to believe the teen loves them that he falls. These ridiculous lies in the the best one is when jim broadband convince broadbent convinced him that the reason he should stood him up on. This date is because she's so in love with them and she so ashamed of her. You know roxanne red light passes. She wants to confess to a priest so she can be like a virgin for him. The very first time he goes into his jukebox like a virgin mashup Halfway through the performance it turns like the duke. And i'm not sure like is is injured here. The duke is so inflamed impassioned the might like rape zindler. I think so. Or is it the horror that this is this. How this guy shows true passion like once his passions inflamed turns into this fucking crew grasping claude creep. He's literally like he is literally doing decree like s announced. He's joe what john was. I forget the guy's yeah. He's he's he's doing that. It's like we really really weird and i feel like gary oldman would've known which lane the b and we wouldn't have the ambiguity. We'd be like oh no. He just wants to. he's he's he's born for love and he's gonna take it from wherever versus like. Oh no this is just this guy. Like oh my god the hell this is going to be in because like if he ever Yeah i don't know but it's the last last thirty seconds of that scene. I'm like it's been twenty years since i've seen it's been like fifteen years was in his movie. I i don't remember what happens here. Oh my god. What is this going to end with. Yeah because sometimes movies go for that switcheroo that had like gear shift in the middle. Like the most recent one i can think of. Actually we just talked about this movie in a private podcast recording on monday jobra has a scene like this where i don't understand. Somehow during the car chasing kobe it turns from murderers with uc's coming after sylvester stallone and brigitte nielsen to brigitte. Nielsen and silvester.

"Spotify. What do we i guess we should. Before we get like in the spoilers Although like i said i did it's This might be one of the things we already said. Most of the things we want to say about the movie. Maybe we should tell people what this is about if you haven't seen it So this is about the real life turns out moulin rouge the red mill. This place. that was in a village of paris. Called the more more. I think which was either the the center of the bohemian world The home of the children of the revolution The that love nothing more than truth. Freedom beauty and love. It's the village of sin. And the devils alter depending on which side of i guess the the parisian cultural divide delivered in your generation your age group and this is about a very privileged bohemian mcgregor. Who has a very wealthy father who kind of runs away. And i guess there's a term for this type of bohemian to call a halt bohemian. The high bohemian the aristocratic that have taken. Essentially you know vows of poverty. Just like recreationally pop and he's he goes no money and he just gets to shittiest flat he can and and the shittiest typewriter and he's gonna write about love and all these things except he's never audience. You won't believe this you'll mcgregor's never ever been in love. How can you write about love with truth and freedom and beauty without experiencing firsthand. He through a series of comical misunderstandings falls in with a troop of other bohemians that are going to pitch. A new show called spectacular spectacular. I think to the owner of the moulin rouge played by jim. Broadbent simultaneously. He's trying to arrange a deal between his wealthy duke to secure the financial future of moulin rouge in to improve it and turn it into a re.

Because that's not a lot. But i have to It's not watching them. But a lot of this stuff only recognize. If i'm being honest about half the songs so like i give up pretty quick. There are some things like you know. Like mama mia was like. Oh yeah i know but like this is the i you know who i had. No i'd never heard until. I heard the song unit nat king cole's nature boy. So right there's a bunch of here there's a there's a couple of classic rock and i mean the he'd like there's like fifty different songs in that love montage where like. She's trying to argue that like she's just as a strictly business type of girl and he's like but what about love. They must pull like the chorus lines from fifty different songs ban. The ham one point. It's in this isn't do. Maybe the most thing in the entire movie is gonna get you in mcgregor to sing a line of winnie. Houston's fuck what is the name of that song blanking. I will always love you. The bodyguard one game. They try and get him to do a. We switch. Bring us this morning we did. Yeah the ones. What the hell can you any names They pull it off reasonably well but it's not waiting. Houston come on. There's you mentioned about this. This movie being very funny. It's funny in a very kind of three stooges almost slapstick. Kind of way. Where it's like. It's all about mistaken identity that then just keeps compounding and compounding and that mistaken identity led to this awkward situation that it's it's not like really sophisticated verbal wordplay or things like it's it's more of just like very broad situational humor but like he there's no he has. There's no shame this movie hasn't any of like it's essentially awesome you know. What a lot of the comedies. Like austin powers Like holding grapefruits in front of his dick kind of style stuff Lake you know guy spying on set with telescope thinking you see in one thing and seeing something else and beans zach kind of laughs.

"Maybe maybe it's taking the last joyful thing for us but yeah chan can was invented that day right right. Oh yes you're right. It said they innovated there. Yeah in the movie right like she doesn't want to just be a cancan dancer. She wants to be a real actress. Whatever that means in terms of making hundred paris. I don't know also can can use as a martial art in this film at one point in the movie which is pretty inventive really. It's a good time the the thing that impressed me most about this movie is the vision. I don't know how you get from something in your brain like that to the screen. It really at all. I would never have the artistic vision to do anything like this. So when i see it unscreened. It just blows my mind like that first. Twenty minutes to this movie is shot after shot seamlessly blended together with all of these effects that most of them are probably done like with just slick editing and in cameras stuff and then you know you layer a little bit of computer graphics on top of that. I don't know the the vision of baas lerman that he's able to capture is incredible. I think helps when you get. This is my understanding. This was at least one pretty. Well regarded film already. Like a play and like it's easier when you have something original and you can go gonzo with it. Because i it's funny because i don't know whether it's strictly ballroom just was like when he was so much more lower budget lower-profile but it's a much more grounded like it's pretty much set in contemporary within a decade of contemporary australia slash new zealand life. It it's like it's the absurdity of this like high end Ballroom scene and how. It's like much more you know. It's like this extravagant beautiful sport but it's ran by these stuffy uncompromising you know rules lawyers essentially and the and romance between people but there's like there's definitely extravagant storytelling but nothing like this scale. So sounds like but that's i am. As far as i know is gonna original thing that he wrote where you know. Romeo and juliet great gatsby. This where he just really like you know amps up like you said the vision. Maybe it helps if you have a sturdy backbone that you can just like. Let's crank all the levers to eleven on all of this shit and you know it's like the great gatsby is not so much about the great gas people. What felt like to be at one of the great gatsby parties that he that he's throwing the try to draw the attention of his his love.

"You still feel pretty good at the end even though it is a tragedy. But you know it's it's it's good. I recommend watching even if you're not a fan of musicals because it is it is a lot of fun. Yeah i mean that's where it goes from just being like romantic conventional sense to like romantic in the anna anna green gable since like you know the tragedy at the end makes else more poignant and the life and death fight for something so temporary an ephemeral lake makes it that much more poignant. It is interesting because like i you know. I'm a lot older that i watched this movie and Like i got a little bit different of lessons And a lot of things a lot. Different things i guess jumped out at me from the screen. But but yeah i want to ask you. This is just a good time. This movie is a fucking straight party like the first two thirds of this film is just got his foot. Pedal doesn't stop and even when it gets depressing at the end is still goes out with such a finale that and he pulls out all the stops in the in in in all the tricks in the book because the editor. This film is edited to within an inch of its life. Almost a extent of parody. I think like like the a big reveal. I don't want to spoil the movie but there's a big big reveal about a secret performance at one point in the film and i think there was seventeen edits in like a second and a half as i. What but it's like that kind of kinetic frantic pace that it's like shock move a music video and the things over two hours long. Yeah they're able to capture like the feeling of being drunk in a dance hall where there is music and lights and dancing girls in a crowd like they're able to capture that in film and it really works. It looks like the best time to go to the moulin rouge which i just learned researching for this as an actual real place. I thought this was all some kind of fantasy shit. Let me And it kinda looks like it does. It's like if you went to the moulin rouge the red mill at the at the peak of its life on rolling on molly but then he goes in search like absent and then he goes in these ads like magical realism on top of that. We're like literally things are sparkling and shining shimmering and all that kind of stuff. Which like i said i repeat myself. You're rolling. i'm ali alliens beautiful and and you told me. How much did this film cost. Fifty million. I notice twenty years ago but it just goes to show you. You can throw a lot of people that can so close. You can throw a lot of costume and set design at the screen and to a-list stars for forty fifty million dollars and you can see every single dollar of it like it's just and again i. The thing that i kept on it kept on. Gobsmacked is when i was looking at pictures of the old moulin rouge and even in its current incarnation and like how much Yeah that's exactly what it looked like like all the the big the big elephants room which i guess wasn't opium exclusive like vip opium den extravagant gardens. They had in the bag. All that shit was was real at least until the place burnt down in like the early twentieth century and they rebuilt it without the opium dens without the elephants shocking without the gardens.
