Brooks Brothers Bankruptcy: Nostalgia, Anger, and a Bidding War

"The abandonment of the suit helps explain the struggles of one of America's most iconic fashion companies, brooks brothers, the two hundred two year old brand filed for bankruptcy protection on July eight sure blame cove nineteen, but now you'd be wrong. Suits with the three piece with Thai or skirts and high heels used to convey professionalism and competence, they served as symbols that you took your job seriously and respected your customers, the ones you were treating too expensive lunches, madman style, but even before the pandemic they'd become something of an anachronism. Most of us now see little to no relationship between the way we dress in our competence at work, think Mark Zuckerberg's hoodies. Indeed expensive suits can be viewed as a sign of elitism. Put it starkly. The corporate fashion code has gone by the wayside. Brooks brothers struggles represent a cultural shift, not just a Kobe tragedy. Brooks brothers famously dressed all but four presidents. It is the longest continuously operating fashion business in America and until this month it boasted about making its products in America the Brandon's three factories in the states in Massachusetts North, Carolina and New York. CEO Claude Delvecchio is planning to close those factories. We'll get to that in a minute. As you know, apparel sales have been decimated by pandemic closures in April nobody bought clothes whether from Brooks brothers or JC, Penney and other retail casualty, but did you know the actual numbers? Clothing sales fell almost ninety percent in April, according to retail dive, but brooks brothers began looking for a buyer about a year ago. The company operates five hundred stores two hundred of them in the US sales have been flat at about a billion dollars a year since twenty, seventeen, prior to the pandemic bankers estimated the company's value at three hundred to three hundred fifty million dollars. Figure Delvecchio disputed. As, I mentioned the company intends to close its three US factories later this month in the gritty industrial town of. Massachusetts home of its largest factory. Its largest immigrant workforce is being denied severance pay many of those workers, immigrants and refugees women from the Dominican Republic. Vietnam Burma and Nepal have made the company's fine clothing for years so far brooks isn't budging. Despite pleas from the union, and from members of Congress according to the Boston Globe in North Carolina, the factories, the only large employer in the little town of Garland closure would affect that town forever, mayor winifred. Hill, Murphy told The New York Times. In response, CEO, Del Vecchio, says for survival. We must hang onto as much cash as possible, but the globe reports that its chapter eleven filing includes plans to give compensation benefits, severance and bonuses totaling millions to other workers. Brooks brothers will transform, but unlike many of its retail brethren its survival is not in question. In fact, at least one bidder for the company believes it can earn annual revenue of three billion dollars within five years more than triple its current sales, so many buyers are vying for the brand at both the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg used the phrase the races on those making bids. Bids Include Mall Company Simon, property, group, authentic brands, group and W. H. P. Global another bidder is a group of Italian. Investors led by a company called GIO which typically helps fashion companies improve their online presences. The Wall Street Journal possibly with tongue firmly in cheek, considering the state cut of Brooks brothers clothing says Julia wants to quote introduced some European flair to the quintessential American brand. Julia's clients include Armani Maxmara and other designers. Brooks brothers is accepting bids through August fifth, so brooks will survive, but what about it's cheaper? Rival men's warehouse tailored brands which owns men's warehouse and the more upscale Joseph. A. Bank plans to close at least a third of its fifteen hundred stores. It said this month it hasn't filed for chapter eleven protection, but it came close according to CNN. That threat remains even after it stores reopened. Sales have been falling. They were down about eighty percent at Joseph A. Bank in the first week of June, as we all continue to do business in Pajama Pants as we all know nostalgia sells Joseph A. Bank doesn't have nearly the name or the history of Brooks brothers, which drips with nostalgia. Teddy Roosevelt apparently insisted his rough riders. Riders wear the Brand Abe. Lincoln was also a brooks brothers customer, one reason for the bidding war beyond what is sure to be the lowest price anyone ever imagined for the stalwart brand. Is What author Lisa Burn? Bach believes about Fashions Post. Pandemic Future Birnbaum who authored the twenty ten book true. Prep argues that the company must be saved after the pandemic finally end, she writes. There will be weddings. There will be funerals. There will be. We hope live operas and theatre and premieres in concerts and fancy dress parties. Where we can't predict the future, but we can observe the present, and what's happening to upscale apparel in the US. WHO's buying it and WHO's making it. Reveals a lot about our rapidly changing an enormously conflicted culture.

"Is my. I think I picture that picture that as being very difficult, we should talk about how instrumental kate worn was in sneaking him around, so yeah, they Lincoln to take off his fancy had, and they get into stoop over a little bit, and they cover them with a shawl on a Cape, but it was kate's job to pose as his sister and to do all the talking. She had to do all this fast talking to say Oh, my gosh. I had this brother. Please let me get him onto this train. Quick, and can you please give us a sleeper car? That is very far away from all the other people. Because look at him, he is so frail and sick and probably contagious. Cough cough. And then she and then she ushers Lincoln onto the train. She's got this pistol. She's hoping she doesn't have to use it. She's ready to use. It has to so in this way kate. Warne was actually the first secret service agent in this country. That's absolutely right. Yeah, bought on, she does. This is this is our dramatic moment. Right the calm before the storm in in this episode of Kate. This is the moment where picture Kate Warne with her pseudo, frail pseudo brother in a sleeper car, and she's just like sitting there i. don't know probably drinking coffee or something staring at her pistol. She does not sleep at all that night, not one wink. And they get to Baltimore safely. Warn no longer has to pose as. Lincoln's protective sibling lights. There's an interesting thing that happens. They unhitch sleeper car from the train, so they don't make this. You know frail non Habur Dash Lincoln walk the streets they It's weird. It's like a take the mountain to the person kind of thing. They just move the train car, which is crazy? I didn't know you could do that. They move the train car by horse through the streets of Baltimore in order to hitch it to another train. That will then get them to Washington. I would've been pretty bumpy ride and they. The streets all cobblestone in those days. Yeah, I would have been rough. In so, this is another tense moment because they had to wait in his car and they have to say well, you know. We hope that this horse pooled train. Car Isn't to anomalous. It doesn't arouse too much suspicion right? Yeah, exactly but it works connect this car to that train. A Mile Away Lincoln somehow stays unnoticed, and you guys know the whole time. He's in the sleeping car he's. He's probably saying to his aides like while I. Just don't understand why guys turn so anti stovepipe hat. Everybody loved it and I feel like you guys are I I. Don't know if your team any more. I wish you would tell me where you put the hat I'm not freaking out your freaking out in any way. They get to that extreme station. They continue on and eventually arrive in Washington. And the next day after this incredibly tense Moment Lincoln Pinkerton. The agents were involved to give him a visit. He wants to thank them in person and I. Love this because he thinks all of the agents, but he really gives kate a special. Thank you because she was the one she was his body person. She was the person that was you know hustling him around and was by his side and was ready with her gun to shoot someone if one. One of the secessionists the drew the rank card of actually found them, and so what he said was quote and I'm not going to do I'm no Daniel day-lewis skies, so I'm just just pretend. Just pick put a stove top hat on me and picture me is Daniel Day, but he says I am sensible. NAM having put you in some inconvenience. That's putting it lightly Abe by the way. Not to not to speak of placing you in danger, so he did acknowledge that he differentiated the inconvenience from the danger. I appreciate it was she was inconvenienced, and she was in danger, and in my head in that scene where she's staying up all night and she's like. Are they coming coming? I don't think he's drinking coffee I think she's drinking whisky. Oh, a guaranteed for the look, right? We've got to remember the aesthetic. Yeah, here's the this is. Probably like the headline that POPs up for Kate Ward, if you if you hear about her in history books, but as we established in part one of the. She did much more than that and. Now we have to look at the Post Lincoln. Operations or post Lincoln career, which is sad because we'll never know how much more she could have done, had her life not been cut short I. Do want to point out We are recording this episode on June eighteenth which is the the day of celebration for the abolition of slavery, and if Lincoln had been killed. The emancipation proclamation may not have come to pass certainly not as quickly as as it did. It was only a couple of years later that he he made that historical announcement and you know we think of the assassination attempts on Lincoln in terms of the one that succeeded more often than not, but it's really the one that didn't succeed. That gave us the brunt of what made Lincoln such an important president. I think that's A. A really good point, and to be just a little bit cheesy here, it reminds me of you know the fact that history is a Palim says you know everything is written atop something else and I I think of the faulkner quote himself problematic author when he said the past is never over. It's not even past. History hinges on such on such small things. I think that's a brilliant point. Thank you for making it. Yeah, no worries and Thank you guys for joining the conversation. Feels like so many books. These days are getting the Hollywood treatments and I am one of those people that has to read the book before I watched the movie. This is Dana Schwartz host of the brand new podcast popcorn club by talked four of my smartest and funniest friends, and starting a book club with me where we read super buzzy books and talk about them every week.

Listen to popcorn book club on the iheartradio APP on Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. We have one final kind of sad little little chapter in in Kate's life, which is the untimely end of the life of a such, a brilliant and creative I say creative because she was very resourceful, and then all these tales we hear about and the reason that she's going to be a perfect heroin for a television series. If she knew she was like a female James Bond, I mean she knew how to get things done. She knew how to get what she wanted with the resources that she had her disposal and.

"Gop You can still here on itunes. A bunch of old things from my old podcast. That might come back for an F. special for a couple episodes but anyway enough jingles. Let's get to the question Moore. Fyvie a listener named Robert wrote listening to your program from the last week of April with John Heilmann Alex's trusty sidekick Murphy said something that I want pursue pursue let's assume trump loses but plays the spoiler and then hangs around on twitter or cable shows. You can bet on that if he loses might question is what happens to the Republican Party. We need a strong and principled Republican Party and I say that as a Democrat. That is a great question and the truth is not sure. I know I can. I can make guest. I think what I can make a guess I think. If trump is defeated there will be a puget stents of a large orange rotting carp all over the Republican Party so because others will lose including probably the US Senate so where be sitting in the minority of fending off two and a half way socialism depending on where Biden late. So we're have a very grumpy bunch of Republicans and trump will get a lot of blame now trump will meet we go to media platforms and try to take over the party. Announces nitwits son is running. I mean he'll he'll have a plan so he will be a voice out there now. I think a lot of the questions might be however your legal troubles Mr President because the southern district of New York has plans for him when he's out of office so I tend to be short this. I think there will be some trump imitators. I think the vile cheap applause. Populism that trump has brought to the party will have agents of Agents expressing it and it will attract some votes but I think trump the ex-king will be a lot weaker than the king so I tend to be I'm pretty short trump afterward and I don't think you'll be nearly as powerful as people presume but I'm totally capable of being wrong on this one we will wait and see. He has a knack for getting attention or delusional. Because you want it to be that way well of course that's your malady and I to suffer it but I I think big trump's brand is winter. Trump is America's biggest oranges loser. I think there's a pair no-no he will not be a loser. Mike there only two outcomes as far as Donald Trump is concerned. One is that He wins and the other is that the election is illegitimate and it was stolen from him. There's not GonNa be any losing for Donald Trump. No I don't know if you guys saw the story and Alex Era Media Maven about Donald Trump may be being involved with a group. That's trying to buy that. Oh A. N. American news network Super Fox. Yes that they have they have elevated to a White House press corps status. They get a question or two at every press conference. Now it is the and and the notion that this is. This is his way station when this is over or his home and he's going to try and take Fox out. I don't know it's GonNa be a problem for the next president because he's not gonna he's GonNa be on Biden's Asif Biden's the president every step of the way well and let's just be clear Joe Biden and I'm working on a piece for the Atlantic about this is about if he wins to walk into. Maybe the worst job in America in history like economic fallout a deeply divided country. That doesn't trust basic facts. At least one side in particular does not trust the institutions that bring and report facts to us. I mean he is got a steep hill to climb and Donald trump loves nothing more than heckling people from the sidelines and Ziang. I would have done better or in fact I did do it better. And if he has an N. To give him the Mike I would expect that he will use it Murphy. You have a question for Alex we do from Jake. Jake says my question is on Biden's. Vp Search seems odd dimension governors as possible VP candidates given that one. We got Jacobs very logical here. I like this one. Governors are responsible for managing the corona virus break in their state and to the krona virus. Outbreak is likely to continue and possibly get worse into the fall. Wouldn't it be irresponsible for governor? Delete his or her post during a pandemic to pursue national office. What am I missing? You're not missing anything. I think. That's a great point. I was interviewing Steve Bullock. The Governor of Montana who is also going to be campaigning for the Senate in the fall and the governor is not talking about the Senate race at all. I think that's entirely logical that's necessary but it's it's a bind if Biden is looking towards governors for his running mate because as we talked about before his his his vp pick is going to have to do a lot of work for the campaign. Probably more than you're even more than your average VP. Because Biden himself is sidelined. He has his own campaigning concerns. And this person. A lot rests on her shoulder so yes. I think it's highly problematic. Pick a governor at this juncture. I'm not I mean I don't know we can all play. The veepstakes rakes Gretchen. Whitmer is always talked about but I I would wonder how seriously governor is really actually in the mix right now. Governors have a lot of advantages though. Traditionally you get a little escaped from the Washington Senate chatterbox world. Were is already a ninth degree black belt. So I'm still for governor. I think this is more of a speed bump in a fatal flaw. But you know we're see if he picks a governor. We'll see how it plays out. Yeah I mean I think you're right on especially because this government there's GonNa be a lot of scrutiny on governors as potential executives And so this is going to be important The the counterargument is there are advantages to people who have actually experienced national campaign and so some of the opponents may bump up on Biden's list as a result of that Alex. I have one for me I do. I have one from you for you. Maybe from you because it's from named David. I'm assuming not your strange. Alter EGO will leave. People to wonder will Justin Marshes third-party bid have an impact on the race? And do you think it would hurt trump or biden more? It's a really interesting question. Obviously he's not a pro-trump person. There is A. There's an a a an argument that if he were to do this that he would provide an outlet for Republicans who don't vote for Biden and don't WanNa vote for trump. My view is this. Donald trump has a low ceiling. And anything that gives voters another option probably helps him because he needs to. Reduce the percentage of votes you need to carry a state And having a in there it seems to me is not helpful because of people are going to turn away from Donald Trump. You want them to turn to Biden and Biden. If I were by now wouldn't be enthused at this point back to two thousand and sixteen and I believe that the third party candidacies the independent candidacy. The I'm sorry the libertarian candidacy which amash is running for the Green Party candy. I think that had a lot to do with the slim margins of defeat for Hillary Clinton in some of those key battleground states. So I would not be excited about this if I were Biden and it should be noted that trump Thought it was a grand idea that amash go and run for president. And he's you know about as subtle as far spacesuit so I think he you can pretty much assume that he thinks it's a good thing for him you know. I'm split minds on this because the conventional wisdom is often that well you now have to two candidates splitting the anti-trump vote so therefore it's good for trump and that that was kind of the story with Perot and Bush. I you can argue it both ways. That's kind of where my instinct is. But if you just shoot this down to a micro analysis because I think the Andy won't sway that much. And I think part of his appeal maybe to disaffected. Republicans will be driven by something. We don't know yet which is will biden pick a running mate now cap And scare the suburbs. Maybe some Republicans. Well see an out to go for GIN amass. But I'll tell you the one micro politics thing that I'm pretty certain of in West Michigan in grand rapids district that a mosh cap. He'll pope votes off trump. He has roots in the community. He's well liked there and he'll take some votes couple thousand at least right out of Donald Trump. Which could be enough in a close race to Tilt Michigan? Good Tilt Doctoral College. It's a small ball. It definitely hurts. Trump in west Michigan and the rest of the country may be irrelevant or maybe could help. Trump little depends on also of weather. Just a mosh can actually do any campaigning. Right that's like the open question. The follow the West Michigan really will well right in West Michigan. I I no doubt you're right but in national landscape when you are confined to your house and your local areas mean who knows there could but it could be just a mashes name reads to people who walk in the booth or some people as none of the above and that is the that that is the danger For for Biden. I think but but you make a good points Murphy. Listen we have time for one really quick last call and I I want to. I think I can speak for all of us on this Jeff you hit the last call thing.

"abe lincoln" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy

"Never happened and didn't never happened so alex did he do enough. Is this what? What is the status of this? Is this likely to hang over? Him Or Was His denial definitive enough. I don't think it was definitive enough. I mean you have the New York. Times editorial board calling for for a full investigation. You have people writing papers of record that he should step down as the nominee that is not the that does not signal the end of a crisis. I think they've got a workout. What his position is on? Why the archives at the University of Delaware shouldn't be opened up because right now. That line of argument seems questionable. And is going to be an opening for his enemies to exploit and for people who are genuinely curious about what happened and I think this is all being debated and discussed in the context of of binding. He's going to pick a female running mate. And I think you know talking to women both inside politics and just women voters. There is a huge sense of frustration and anger and really raw hurt among women in this country that with such a diverse cast of women to choose from the Democrats have gone with such Genera and you know White Guy and now here we have sexual harassment allegations. And now he's GonNa say I'm I'm picking a woman and this feeling that women have I think in some corners that like why. Why are we the ones that are taken less seriously and also asked to clean up the mess and I think they've got to do a very careful? Balancing Act between look like as Rebecca Tracer says. This vice presidential pick is forced to drink from a poisoned chalice where she becomes sort of excuse maker for Biden's questionable behavior. We're going to call it that. And that and that Biden take seriously the I think they are taking seriously the moment right like I think they need to be. I think there needs to be a clearer signal that they want daylight on all parts of this and I think that that honestly probably involves opening up. There is that could disprove what she is. Alleging let me be a biden surrogate here in new a new job but when you want a job done right color. Republican let me take the other side of the argument away republic it I as a campaign person have learned long ago that somebody casting a grumpy. Vote for you every bit as much as somebody casting in a static. Vote for you. Do you think many of those women are GonNa stay home or vote for Donald J trump rather than Joe Biden? If his answer doesn't improve. I do not well Murphy. I know it's all a zero sum game about. Who's in the White House? But I think when you're talking about the fabric of American society having a nominee in there doesn't make women feel like shit was probably a good idea even if they pull the lever form right there. There has to be a better way for half of this country that we don't just have to say okay. Maybe he did some like messed up stuff with this woman. But it wasn't as bad but we're GONNA keep no trump's I'm going to say yes. We have to advance the ball down. The Joe Partisan would say you know that he answered it. He denied it strongly. The corroborating evidence is Roy. Weekend I think I think he did okay for with his toolbox and what the story needs now to be bad for Biden in a major campaign shaking way I think is for her to emerge and be strong sympathetic instead she's Kinda wilted cancelled. The Chris Wallace interview doesn't seem to want hear. I think he's Kinda hit the mother lode on this that this thing is going down to third string problem Because he's denied it and there hasn't really been a counter-case so you gotta be curve about opening up the world because the media will look for the time. He spilled the coffee and mother. Teresa made a joke about us. She moved a little slow dodging at the old bat. You and then. Boom the campaigns about Biden out about trump. So I there's risk in all this was that Mother Teresa thing and actual thing. Do you know that half anyway go ahead? Alexandra no no I. I don't think we should be careful about saying she's completely uncritical. I mean there is a lie and I'm not trying to make the case for Terry by any stretch of the imagination. But you know there are. There was the Larry King Call. There are these conversations. She had with neighbors and friends in the nineties. Like it's no it's not Christine Blasi for it. I don't think these are not sworn affidavits. This is not Democrats calling merely for an investigation. This is something else but I do think there is. You know I don't necessarily know the this is I think it is a defining moment for is not going to be something that people vote on in November but I do think it is something that matters in terms of how it is handled and what it says about how Democrats handle situations and allegations like these and it matters also because there is going to be a woman on that ticket and she is going to get asked about this so I think the biggest thing if you look at polling and there was another morning console poll out yesterday I hear I hear from a lot of young people and particularly the Bernie Young people have this has been festering. This story and it continues To do that. I agree with Mike. I think that The combination of what he did and what she didn't do which was to appear publicly and talk about this probably has doused it A little bit as a general issue. It's still on the on social media still circulating around and you know it's it's it's a tough it's a tough thing because it's You know you have. Two people want says it happened. One says it didn't happen and lately. It's hard it's it's a very hard situation for for for him and for her But I will say this. I wrote a another piece this week. about The my experience in the Obama vice presidential vet and You know we had thirty or so candidates and when it came down to the final batch the the vetting was intense and some people fell away because of things that these veterans discovered and they were looking at every aspect of their lives. This never nothing. Not NOT JUST TERRY. But no story like this Related to Biden ever came up in that vet and I don't know you know that's not as positive But generally there are patterns of behavior and there are rumors about people that you hear and pick up and that wasn't the case with him so I do have to. I do think that you have to lay that aside. Everything else here but As far as the University of Delaware records go in the Times wanted him to open up the University of Delaware records. He could do that and Mike at one point. You suggested to me that he he should do that. And designated people to look at those the relative relevant years to see. If there's anything there you know my thought on that is there probably isn't anything there because he says there's not and he's right personnel records pride on appear in there but if there is nothing there as he says what's to stop people who believe this from saying well obviously they remove the records. There's no bottom to this thing. There's thing there isn't a thought was tactically if she had appeared and been stronger And the record. Sing hanging out there. The step for the campaign is to get him out of the record. Staying in appoint a credible group led by Franken killer Senator Gillibrand or some others. Who has endorsed him? But I think you could have a credible group kind of supervise at to go. Put It over an escrow but it's a bottomless pit and when Biden is debating. This stuff. He is not debating fire. Donald Trump the whole election is about control change the channel and with all due respect to the the the passion among Democratic Women. About all this the the you know the cold hard mathematical fact beyond the zero point about you gotta be trump is if the Democratic primary electorate which was majority female really really thought. The most important attribute of the Democratic candidate was gender. They would nominated one. They have plenty of candidates to pick from amy or Carmela and in the end it was old. Joe Who may be everybody's second or third choice but he got nominated and he's not trump's so now it's a tough political battle of beating trump so it never get perfection and I think the Biden campaign is right to be careful about some of this stuff because they don't want the election to become about something else and I thought he gave enough of an answer that he's in pretty good shape on this right now and and a life story a defensible. Let's not ignore the the elephant in the room. Which is that. This is not a very potent line of attack for trump because of his own history. Which is I mean blanket. We he doesn't need to step in this any more than I mean. He certainly wants to avoid this as a channel. Changer you know I. I don't know their attitude is well this baked in the cake right these stories about Donald trump but if I can drag Biden into this and and make him play on the same tabloid field on which I live. That's a that's a that's okay for me so And I I think they're stoking it up in social media even as he is not stoking it up In in in person. So you're right that you know logic would say well. He's not a very credible alternative. That as you're thinking or yeah but I mean I think his goal is to just drag biden down in every way in every way that he can. I mean we'll we'll we'll see how this evolves I do think it feels different to me today than it did a week ago because subsequent events but I agree with Alex. It's IT'S NOT. It's not over and it hasn't. It's definitely not over. It just feels like it's evolved a little but look we should talk about the Republican brand problem that might have put the Senate in play but first we have to respect the Gods of commerce and get a.

I found that was a real real tape recorder and it was really hard to set up an at split-second l. Amazing it's amazing so but the larger point is the trump at least. The campaign world often detached from the the candidate. You know who's in his own reality as you say is trying to bend the facts here by introducing the number one weapon of any campaign new information to try to take the edge off at a little which is why you know. I. I think it's ludicrous. On one level in our welcome but another level. I'd answer it if I were the Biden. People in makes it takes the edge off a little young. Doesn't this remind you just remember in the early stages of the Obama Administration? I'm not comparing these two responses. Let me just preface this by saying that right. So many people in the administration were so frustrated by the fact that it was like. But if we hadn't done what we did it would have been so much worse and it like this truism that it's impossible to tell people but it could have been worse 'cause nobody understand. It's not particularly effective argument right even though it may be true or in trump's case a well we're not gonNA get into trump's line of argument there but that's the nugget of that ad would have been so much well. The other thing is that we arrived sort of at the peak of the crisis and it pretty quickly started to. The numbers started to go down. It didn't help us in the short run but the direction was was became clear over time. This thing is unpredictable and it looks like it could get worse exactly and so you know he keeps you remember. This is the guy who tells us that. We're only going to be fifteen cases. I think we're at like one point. Two million now and Close to seventy thousand deaths. So He's been wrong at every juncture people have heard that as Mike points out. Everybody has the tape of that and one has to presume that the Biden campaign is going to deploy that tape to make to make the point here so Yeah it's very hard to make the case that it could have been worse but it's even harder when it's getting worse right And you and the person who's making the argument has been misleading. People at every turn but part of what trump's trying to do here is give his people who in my view as I've said for two years are not enough to win. He is never been in the growing his vote business. Which is why. I think he's favored to lose. But he is giving his people an argument and he's taking what people already believe about. Him is a tough asshole and he's applying it to the virus. He may be a tough guy. You heard of the ad copy. He may not get along with anybody but he's a man of action. He did this. He did that he did the other thing that gives them a limb to grasp on well. There's all the damning tape and everything haven't seen as-yet you know having seen that action from the Biden people Or the I-IT's. I'm sure it's coming. Maybe it's in some places. I'm not aware of that. I think that's a good transition. I was reading the paper the other day the Kami paper of record near times and there was an op-ed from these two troublemakers in the Democratic Party. Down Biden. Get with it kind of echoing. The concern here and finance circles. I'm sure you're getting a candy. Gram from Biden headquarters. But why don't you talk about it? And the argument which I agree with. I think you guys were right. Not Everybody was Was happy about it. A piece was actually assigned by the Times who WANNA to know how you campaign in this kind of environment And the piece flowed from there but the this juxtaposition that you're talking about. I think the the main thing that Biden has to worry about strategically which is the image of the president however screwed up he is however disingenuous however misleading however incompetent He's out there. He looks like he's doing things he's GonNa be seen in this factory today and you have that juxtapose with Joe Biden sitting in his basement. Who has no official role play And looks like the outside. You know like he's he he is sort of a sedentary solitary figure And that is a danger because the the message that the trump campaign is hoping to push they have to try and destroy Biden. You can't sit there at forty three percent approval and get reelected. They have to take biden down and the the one of the main attacks they've chosen. Is this You know Sleepy Joe thing that he's not that not up to it that he doesn't have the energy that he's definitely in a mentally acuity anymore and so they need to use the modern accoutrements of communication to push back on all that first all I've got push back quickly on stuff like this positive and negative. They've got to react quickly. Secondly they've got to find ways to present Biden in In in in a more active Or they'll fall subject to that kind of a a caricature Biden should win this race. Okay but we are. Deeply divided country deeply divided country. And if you look at the polling he's ahead in the battleground states right now but not by all that much and you know it is striking that Donald Trump after all of this is still sitting there with a forty three percents approval rating. So I just think you have to. You know this might you. You've been involved in these. You don't back into you. Don't back into the presidency. You GotTa fight with Donald Trump and you this guy. Whatever else you say about him he will never give up. And there's nothing he will not do to try and win this election. I totally agree. Trump is drowning politically but in politics. We all know that that means you immediately find the biggest ugliest firehose you can and apply more water. You Never get passive. Because trump like most insect life will fight to the very very end and as you say he will do anything. So if you're in the Biden World journ weird mix of Risk Control. Because you don't want to do anything to change the subject to you. Anyone a double down on trump. So one thing you never let them do is get any offense going. Whether it's an ad sang all the things he did that his world and a few people you know outside that may believe and second you keep him back on his heels with a guy is insecure is trump. That's not that hard to do. But you need a coordinated offense and they I A little lenient on them. On the theory they have time to rally and go forth but it's now time to rallying voting begins in some state. Yeah hundred fifty days so that much time I just want to say I think that Molly Dylan. Who's his new campaign? Manager is one of the best. I've I've ever worked with. She is really really good. She as we said in the piece is recruiting really good people And it's a question of how the candidate and his coterie around him adapt to What needs to be done here. But But you can't you can't sort of sit back. I had people write me in response to the OP. Ed saying he should just run out. The clock risky. You don't win the presidency by running out the clock even under these circumstances and and certainly not with candidate like Donald Trump who may not be good at governing may have no empathy may be may be a corrupt but is indefatigable when it comes to pursuing his own interests. Let me CHIME IN QUICKLY THAN ALEX. WanNa hear from you. I'll just say the meanest possible thing here and it's hard for me because I have friends in the Biden world and I like Biden. Not Ideologically where he is. But I'm I like them and I've said before against trump he'll be the first presidential democrat. I think I've ever voted for but Biden is in some ways the proverbial turtle on the fence post. He got beat in Iowa. He got beat in New Hampshire and then the African American vote in its passion and loyalty of South Carolina Reflecting Biden's long record and disassociation Barack Obama lifted them up and put him where he is today. He hasn't put himself very many places so it is important to all those inside the Biden world from his sisters very bombed the campaign on down to love him enough to realize that and realize that they didn't get were they are through campaign actions. Yes and if they want to be presented states in the they carry that holy. 'cause now they got up the game and they've just got to be open minded not ensler about that to serve the moment in history that he has. I cannot agree with you enough Mike Murphy and I don't think of myself as the meanest person in the room. I will tell you it's true. Well maybe in this room do in this room of SOB sister. Liberals you're into this. I was spent a lot of time on the campaign trail with Joe Biden before at nineteen and his campaign events were terrible. He is a good retail politician. One on one. You Notice David. You've talked about this op ED. It's absolutely true that he can his empathy and his ability to communicate with a person are in a class by themselves on the stump as a public speaker as someone who has fire in his belly. It is not there. The campaign events were pretty awful and the reason Joe Biden exists candidate. Yes of course you African American support but also because we Americans collectively feel like we know Joe Biden and we have made Democrats a decision. Democrats have made that. He is the guy that can be. Donald trump in so joe Biden needs to do whatever he can to keep that idea alive and convincing. And I think you're right. David I think that surrogates are a huge part of this. He needs to get Warren he needs to get Barack and Michelle. He needs to get every important. Democrat who has endorsed him out there doing incredible viral videos. He needs to start seeing the landscape and get Americans. Democrats Young Progressives to envision. What a Biden cabinet would look like to give them a sense that the Abidin White House is not just Joe Biden. Joe Biden can go up to the hill with Turkey Sandwich to make peace with Republicans every third Thursday and that can be primarily what he does but the hard work the machinery of his administration will be run by some very able captains with new spirit and and presumably hotter fire in their bellies. That is imperative work. I think right now you know one thing that is striking to me. Just looking at a data is people. Don't really know Joe Biden as well as we've been around for a really long time but he hasn't been the featured player and they don't know him that well and So part of the mission here is for those surrogate also and other you know. And and their production studio over there to be pumping out material to let people know Who Biden is and what his story is an and I said at the beginning of that piece. We said at the beginning of that piece that you know these qualities of empathy and experience Are actually exactly what the country needs and wants right now but you need to tell people Those stories they're beginning to now. According to Leah The Times are going to begin emphasizing his role in the recovery. Act I was there. It was genuinely important. He he was handed the portfolio And he managed the Recovery Act pretty much flawlessly. Seven hundred eighty seven billion dollars. Went OUT THE DOOR? Pretty quickly He understands the levers of power and how to use them and You know that's a story that that they should be telling but everything needs to be take up. There needs to be a faster pace to all of it and they need to use all the tools available to them. I have no doubt Geno Molly Dylan knows that and she's trying to retrofit a campaign that as you guys. Both know wasn't very dad. Can I just point out one like I just want? Recall this tweet from the twenty twenty campaign which I still think if you're talking about Mike you were talking about this. President being thin skinned and insecure. I found this to be. This is the model I think for the Biden tweets Mike Bloomberg. And what month was this? This was in February of this year at Real Donald Trump. We know many of the same people in New York behind your back. They laugh at you and call you a carnival barking clown they know you inherited a fortune and squandered it was stupid deals and incompetence. I have the record and the resources to defeat you and I will. Do you guys remember that. Tweet do no. It's good it. It goes back to the joke that you made your money the old fashioned way you inherited it a gridiron dinner that set trump into a rage..

"abe lincoln" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy

"Form here. All the time on I'm path will thank you for joining us. So shall we start with the I? Guess we Kinda have to the trump update. We had the big town hall on Fox on the Lincoln Memorial. I sure off camera president said you know I could build a better memorial marble where whereas you know amateur amateur work this Lincoln you saw by the way that they had to you know the the secretary of Interior had to give them special dispensation to shoot. No one is allowed to shoot inside the Lincoln Memorial so but that the rules don't apply here as we know well. The rules haven't applied for a long time. Yeah not sure. They're steam cleaning it today anyway but that that is passed. Didn't mean anything did change anything. Where do we think we are? I think we've all got virus fatigue but science you know in biology doesn't really care about those emotions but we are the politics of this start to change a bit as people are starting whether it's smarter not. We can debate that go back to their lives in different parts of the country. Yemen. I think we're at we're at a pivotal moment here. It seems to me because they're always going to be this point where we did our jobs well enough that it looked like we had. We were wrestling this thing into submission and when we did That you know people understandably are rest of some of them are a many of them are desperate. They've lost their jobs. They're worried about their future. They don't see a lot of visible evidence of this. And now that is you know the polling still shows people. WanNa go slow. There are loud voices out there and the president is abetting them and it seems like we're at a hinge point. Kaz Now we see these new estimates that if these states opened up as suggested what the death rate is GonNa Start Climbing again and so you know as as she said. Last night we have to decide how much death were willing to accept. But what do you think about this political moment? What is amazing about that town hall that we're talking about? An shadow of Lincoln is a the fact. That Lincoln didn't get up from his marble throne and just whack president across the head but also there's this moment in it where he talks about the death count that the White House expects and he revises the numbers we could lose seventy five eighty five one hundred thousand people and then he says but I did such a good job at it could have been millions. And the disconnect between the information is giving the American public which is a body count of brothers and sisters and mothers and uncles and granddaughters. That is going to be tens of thousands higher than we have been led to believe and then this kind of casual dropping of millions as if they're like car sales that we're talking about from overseas his absolute emotional disconnect from the death. Which is what we're facing as a country is staggering. Does the whole that sort of like the crux of this moment right? I just think you know. He is in so many things so abysmally terribly in this moment but managing expectations. But what's going to happen next? Is I think chief among them and when you talk about states opening back up there's the death piece there's the economy piece which is driving these governors to do this and is driving the White House to advocate for the opening up of the state economies. This data economies in the best case scenario are going to be fifty percent of what they were. There are going to be massive job losses through the summer in the best case scenario and in all likelihood that hemorrhaging continues in a worse clip in the fall so like the expectations here on every level are so wildly out of sync with the reality that we walk over walking into I. Yeah I think that the funny thing on trump is sociopath so therefore he doesn't have empathy. It's almost a tragic thing I think for him. But putting putting trump aside because it's been a no pun intended a circus of misinformation and craziness but the pressure to reopen particularly in parts of the country. Where there's less spread Is Not illegitimate you know. An economic depression is massive pain too. So this is one of these things where it's a tricky balance in. If we had enough testing and other trump administration failure it would be easier to ride the throttle but here in California where for once government really got something right. I'll tip my hat you know. We've had tragedy here too but compared to our huge population. It's been smaller. Hospitals have not been overwhelmed Newsome who I think. It's been very good on. This has started to slowly and carefully. Open the Spigot so I think it is not an appropriate in some areas to take those steps if you listen to your public health people and the good news is that trump has bully pulpit on this but he doesn't have roy very much control on opening the country. Governors are driving it and I think most people trusted Voinovich is or the Larry Hogan's or the Gavin newsom is more make the wineman. You're having one of those things where you're synapses fire and you throw out names from the past not Voinovich Dewine and Oh God no no I sign. I might have caught something. You're right but of course governor Mike Dewine who basically is eventually never been seen in the same room together. Well Yes yes I guess. I just wonder like so. But even with the the the sort of careful diligent reopening the expectation that life is going to return to normal and that a large percentage of the American workforce is going to be back at it is is false like yeah it is gonNA listen. I think this is why trump has I think he is anticipating that there's going to be a lot of misery In our economy from now the November and he wants to be on the side of people who who say well. Let's open this thing up so that he can point to those who who didn't and say you know I was. I wanted to. I wanted to open this economy up and they would do it. I mean I think that's clearly what's happened. He you know it's hard to give people difficult news and tell difficult truths and this is a process that has to be followed. I watched FAO CI last night On with Chris Cuomo who I'm happy to see was back at his desk after dealing with covert nineteen himself and couch e there was almost a mournful you know. He's he's irrepressible but there was a bit of a mournful re resignation to him when he said that thing about you. We have to decide how much death we and basically what he was saying is look we gotta get back. Everybody wants to get back but there is a process here and if we don't follow it it's going to get worse and it's going to spike up again but and Cuomo said will you're losing that battle and and and Thao she said Yeah I know I am so that is the reality but I think trump seat you know. He was going to run on the economy now. He's running from the economy. He wants to blame Those governors who have been assiduous about how? They're how they're handling this for being too slow and opening up the economy. I I guess I wonder with Rhonda Santa's follows in Lockstep in Florida. Completely Open for business. I argue the economic impact. They can't they still can't escape right. So the the sort of finding your bogeyman. It's going to be a fool. The yeah the. The virus is the of the virus. And you can't run reelection campaign blaming something that at the sub molecular level. Although I'm sure president trump is gonNA try and do that. I mean any. I would say David. Like how much death are we used like? You could vouch. His argument could be transposed to a lot of issues that divide Democrats and Republicans. Look you see the same thing on climate change. How much death do you want to get used to? Because every degree you allow the earth to warm more death and one party has proven. I think constitutionally uninterested in managing threats that are in the future whether that's the near term future or the longer medium-term future whatever time line you're working on and that is absolutely what's happening right now. I actually think they did they. They they actually say that. It's constitutionally constitutionally proscribe Murphy no I was going to put on my a somewhat tattered. Gop Half because a lot of the stuff. It's hard to defend when trump is shattered our own principles but you know national bankruptcy was something we were always a bit more concerned about than the other party. I'm not so sure now I'll tell you. I think some of these Republican governors and senators though and I I agree that over all this thing is working against trump as it should because of his incompetence and the Republican brand suffers and it should because of its complicity but some of these red state politicians do have a rock to hang onto. Because you gotta remember thirty two hundred counties but one hundred eighty of them. The largest counties provide the bulk of the democratic vote. They're more urbanized. They've had a harder time with the virus so far. So if you're in Idaho or you're in Kansas urine somewhere. That is a red state. Don't say South Dakota Well it's not the clusters or Perry Iowa where you know there's meat-packing but fundamentally urine less biological pain right now you're feeling a lot of economic pain. Shutdown and so your politics do reward a different management than the politics of Boston or New York City or Chicago where you have mass transit and it's going to be very hard to open New York till there's a vaccine because of subway and mass transit that is not true in Wichita Kansas Or Tulsa Oklahoma. So some of these folks in red state world are responding like all politicians due to their politics and it's different so some of them the back to work thing I think has a lot more more What do I say Reality for them now. If they don't monitor it and there they go too fast and they do start to have more clusters than their pay a price. So yeah you know the the boogeyman out there for them too. But it's it's a little diff- New Mexico's shutdown right now. Exactly Thirty Ryan situation. The shut down the Indian reservation but New Mexico by the way been a case study. She has done a tremendous job. It's one of the states has had the most success. Yeah well they're nursing homes in every state and I think if you looked at the numbers. Trump's early approval numbers on this. When they weren't going down there was one bit of data. That was indicative. I think very telling if you did not know someone who had suffered from Kovic nineteen. You were more likely to approve of the president's handling of this the more this touches people's the worst he does and like I said I mean Nursing Home Facilities Exist. Every county probably. I don't know factually but that the elderly we all know someone who's old and they are particularly vulnerable to this. Oh sending ones guess. Trump has done what trump does which is and he has all his life. I mean it's not just now. This has been his modus operandi. He tries to impose his reality. His kind of set of alternative facts on any situation especially when they may be negative for him. The question is can you do that in a situation? Where all of the country is experiencing the real reality on a daily basis. Post just had to pull out this morning. Washington Post And His approval rating on his handling of the corona virus sits about where his overall approval has sat for most of his administration. Forty four percent. A thou- Cheese at seventy four. Your state's governor is at seventy five federal public health scientists seventy-one president at forty four. This is a consequence of getting busted yet for trying to tell a story that everybody knew wasn't true and now I woke up this morning here in Arizona where he is arriving to Tour a factory where they're making protective equipment. And there's a new ad running because it's really interesting strategically to ask whether this is.

I don't think we ever talked about who we would be in each you know destiny's child member Okay well obviously Abe is beyond yeah uh-huh totally Michelle on this yeah well you have to own it Michelle's underrated I think she's great and it's not like you're like one of the original group members was kicked out of destiny's child or anything so and he anyway we've got to give more props to the visitor's center because it's one of the best things I think I've ever seen yeah we've seen really I mean it's actually operated the Gettysburg Foundation and that works with the National Park Service to educate visitors about all the different military park and civil war yeah they do an amazing job and thorough and the first thing you got to do when you arrive to this center is getting line to buy tickets especially for the film and something called the Cyclorama yes one hundred percent yeah because that stuff has the most likelihood of filling up and there's only a limited amount of time per day so I had never even heard of this cyclorama before so I was very intrigued and we obviously need to see what this is all about yeah definitely lived up all the hype for sure I mean with our tickets we had Ah timed entry to the film which was called a new birth of freedom this was screened on a in a large modern theater that actually minded we have like a regular high quality movie theater and one of the things that wasn't a who did the voicing more in free of course he killed it of course he's always welcome surprise and perfect in this context like hearing Morgan Freeman's voice talking about civil war in Gettysburg goes just absolutely amazing and made it so much more emotional Morgan Freeman's voice is the voice of America let's be Yeah we love him more so yeah this theater was really impressive like the rest of the visitor's center everything very new very polished in my kind of the state of the art and this one was far more modern than the typical visitor's center screening rooms we've been in it had literally stadium seating very comfy chair news and it's the type of theater that you want to spend like a couple hours in eating gummy worms drinking soda or in our case Soda with air quotes because that usually means like a little sneaky flaps that you bring in I don't know what you're talking about this was really angry movie winky mode Yeah it was really great movie experience I mean I'd be happy to sit in their afternoon them that'd be definitely be weird to be drinking out of a flask at Gettysburg film yeah that's not a good idea but I was just really into it and I could absolutely sit there for hours I totally agree but the movie is only about twenty minutes scenario by Morgan Freeman like we said fantastic surprise get his visitor center really pulled out all the stops the listeners S. one very impressive Morgan Freeman as the best narrator I can listen to talk about and he literally anything he could narrate a fun book and I would be weeping with emotion probably so this This movie really was a good primer on the civil war and the battle of Gettysburg in particular Living in the The timeline of the steps that lead into this iconic event right so I obviously you've got his Berg was epic and iconic but I had kinda forgotten about all the details and Smith junior high days and this was a good refresher and then even further than that not only refresh but like informed me every on everything about Gettysburg in like I feel like instead of taking a whole history class in junior high I just watched this twenty minute movie and finally able to turn the tables on the confederacy and pave the way for victory of war yeah so up until this point until Gettysburg Robert e Lee was pretty much on the arthur the north he was gaining so much momentum that the union was struggling to keep them back now and then there's another like National Park Tien here that we learned about two incense Lee actually let US troops through the Shannon Doa valiant as way to Gettysburg right yeah I had no idea about that as well that was the that was a fascinating little fact but it does make sense geographically since the confederate troops were heading there from Chancellor's Ville Virginia so making its way through the Shenandoah area which was not a national park at the time no of course not obviously not but his initial hopes were to keep pressing northward to add more pressure to the union aiming to just weaken them to me and then be able to sick and then a hopefully make way to Philadelphia eventually and then who knows what would have happened after that everything came to a head on July first of eighteen sixty three at first it seemed like Lee might be successful since on the first day of the battle confederate forces defeated John beaver Union Forces on the north side of Gettysburg Yeah and then the next day July second was complete mayhem the union form this huge hook shaped offensive line and the confederacy meet a full charge right into it there was none of bloody battles fought at sites like little round top peach orchard and Devil's den which sounds appropriately ominous I think yeah and then July third things took a different turn there is many losses on both sides believe was too ambitious with his charge on the cemetery orig- he had more than twelve thousand soldiers leading this salt but the unions defensive line was too strong with rifles and artillery yeah so this that being a huge blow to the confederacy so much so that Lee had to retreat back to Virginia and altogether there were about fifty thousand soldiers killed over the three day span on both sides which is absolutely horrific now and then several months later Lincoln visited Gettysburg for the dedication of Gettysburg nationals commentary and that's eight delivered his famous address.

And when you get down to southern Illinois you are literally in the south, you're lower than parts of Missouri, and the train just changes completely to basic swampland you have a shawny national forest down there. And these rolling hills and prairies of the north. Give way to this swampy dense forest land of the south where these back country and the roads and it's just a whole different world down there. It really is. You know, when they wanna have a great time, they come across the Mississippi to Saint Louis that's their big city. Visit and people aren't aware that there's so many different things going on in southern Illinois. It's just the unbelievable but tell us about the big muddy monster. Tell us about that title. Interesting. Because this monster southern Illinois, it comes out of the big, muddy river name, and they called a monster. Because even though it resembles a big foot or a sasquatch, it's somewhere between six and nine or ten feet. All it's always a white furred, or white clothes, or white skinned always appears to be white and it has this cone head and these weird ears and people who claim that has glowing red eyes in its caked in mud from the waist down. Is it just come out of the river, always seems to travel along this river, which is like the name, implies big and muddy? When you stick your foot in this river, you come out cake with mud, so this monster has been patrolling this area of southern Illinois for well over a hundred years. People have been seeing this creature for that long which means. That the thing has been breeding multiplied, I would guess what's interesting is some of the early newspaper reports claim that not only were people seeing it, it was attacking livestock that a lot of farmers. And ranchers in that area were terrified because this unknown monster was killing their precious livestock, and they're fine hunting dogs and they were losing their livelihood. And they were demanding that the authorities captured this thing. It does look like a sasquatch on your on your cover even though it's an artist's sketch. It's pretty darn close to Bigfoot. Isn't it really? Is that sketch came directly from a assiting, one of the more infamous sightings of the big muddy monster, where people sought with the glowing red eyes and had a terrible stench to it in this long hair coming from. It's body. So even those artist's sketch, we took it right off of one of the witness stories and the best part about this book, is that even though these stories go back a hundred years, maybe even further in the history that many of the more modern sightings, the witnesses not only are still alive. They're willing to talk about their story. Speaking of one hundred one hundred dollars in nineteen forty nine was a lot of money wasn't that offered for any information or capture of the creature in the nineteen forties? The newspapers talked about a thing they call. Thing they had no name. White Munster that was terrorizing tone, and there was an old iron works specifically on the outskirts at town, salvage yard and this creature was being spotted so many times at the owner put up one hundred dollars reward for anyone who could catcher it hoping that this could alleviate the fear of his workers, who during lunchtime, we're afraid to sit around, because this monster was on the pro and as far as I know, George no one ever claimed that hundred dollar reward. You'll probably still running. Maybe it's worth about seven hundred today. Yeah. I think the hundred dollars still would have been a sum of money in nineteen forty nine. During this thing I think it was meant to really add a lot of publicity for this story because these workers were generally terrified of this monster. So if this could raise the profile, this monster and help get caught. I think it was, what would have been well, worth one hundred dollars for that owner, Chad twenty four years later. Nineteen Seventy-three this legend, really popped what happened. This is where again, we had mentioned Loren Coleman doing the Ford. Lauren was there in the nineteen seventies when this exploded. And that's when the big muddy really got international fame and began nineteen Seventy-three down by a riverside park, which is right along the big muddy river, and it was a spot where people hung out teenagers when, and it was one night in the summer of seventy three when a young couple was parked down there. You know, lovers lane sort of place when all of a sudden they heard this lowered loud screeching coming from the river, in a smell came into their car, curable smell. And they looked up in this thing was hovering out of the water coming toward their car, and they broke out of their engagement, and drove off a medium to the police department and said, we saw this giant nine monster almost caq vehicle. So the police rushed out to the park. To try to find this thing. And of course, whatever it was was gone, but they could still smell it. But what's interesting is this was never reported in the newspaper at the time is one of the officers that I responded went into the woods, and when he was in the woods, he saw some prints. Well, you could call them prince, because the mud was so thick that when you put your foot in and pulled it up suction would create a line in the mud. Yeah. Not your traditional Bigfoot did print would fill fill in awfully fast. Wouldn't it? Yeah. So he saw a couple of these and then he heard this loud growl scream from something. He was so terrified. He dropped his revolver in the woods, and refused to go back and get jeez. It wasn't until several hours later when they were able to retrieve his weapon, and of course, that was something we learned from our interviews with the officers that responded. It wasn't reported in the media. No one wanted to officer was too frightened that they left the revolver in the woods. But this creature was gone, were, they were they very open to talking to you. The police officers. The surviving. Police officers were, and that's what really struck me about this case is that when you think of the southern Illinois police officers these big thirty men, you wouldn't think would get spooked by anything. They were telling us that didn't know what this thing was. They were on alert, and they felt that the witnesses really had an experience and the witnesses were terrified. And remember this was the nineteen seventies in southern Illinois. It was gun country. Still, it still is most of the people that we interviewed told us they were carrying a weapon on them while we were interviewing them. So they were still to this day, some forty some years later baffled by what they had seen, and even though they had been on the force now retired after thirty forty years, they still were baffled by what they had seen, and it's still stood out to them as one of the weirdest cases they had ever investigated, and you can imagine how much weird stuff and officer season thirty years of service and Chad. Let's talk if we can a little bit more about some of the witnesses that you talked to about this. The creature itself has never been captured. Right. That's right. In most of the witnesses are convinced that the creature wasn't necessarily flesh and blood, that there was something supernatural to, and this creature, much like a lot of other cryptos has this overwhelming sense of fear that accompanies at that many of the witnesses are immediately, terrified and not just by the fact that they had encountered a ten foot creature roaming around in their backyard, or in their, their hometown. But something more to it. Something on a primal level causes fear where people even once they get home and in the safety of their home or out of the range in their vehicle. They feel a little almost embarrassed about how cure they'd gotten. But at the moment they felt like if they didn't leave something was going to harm them. Let's get into the episode that occurred in nineteen eighty eight. That'll give everybody a pretty good perspective to about this monster. This is my favorite story of the big muddy legend, and it happened almost like a Hollywood set ABI horror movie, set this old salvage yard on the outskirts of town, where you had all these rotting old rush thing. Vehicles labyrinth of dead ends and the owner Bob he was upset because he was being plagued by teenagers coming into his salvage yard and ripping the eight decks in his vehicle. So he hired an off duty police officer to monitor his business at night, and they had come up with this plan that if any intruders came in they would call one another and together, the two men would confront the intruders, you'll providing more safety for each of them and one night in the summer. They were working and they saw something moving on the outskirts of the back end of the salvage yard and they took their flashlights, and they started walking out there and they could see something big moving, but it was the stench that got their attention right away. And then their lights flashed upon this nine foot white monster with the weird coned head in these large. Hoppy ears. And they saw this thing with his glowing red eyes. And then when I interviewed Bob, he told me the is were reflecting the light. It wasn't I shine light was emanating from this creature and the entire time they had it in their flashlight. It was darting back and forth between these wrecked vehicles. And Bob said, what terrified him is that the creature seemed to be mumbling to it self almost like it was talking to it self in some unknown language in the security guard grabbed his pistol out of his holster, any asp, Bob, if you should shoot this thing, and Bob smartly said, no, don't shoot it. We don't know what this things keep -able. Exactly it made might just make it mad. So they started to backtrack to the to the garage and the word this thing. Just kinda remained on the outskirts of their their vision. They could see it moving following them. But it never really came into view. And then Bob tried to lure it under this motion light that he had on the facility that would trigger the, the security lights and this thing seemed to display some sort of intelligence, where would not be lured under the light. So they get back to the shop and they're going to call the police. But one of them's a off duty officer, and he doesn't want the type of you'll ridicule that may come from that. So Bob calls his family to come out there. And they come out thinking he's joking. He's playing around, you know, it's late at night, what's he doing wasting our time? And is they're all in the shed in this big garage. They start to hear banging on the side of the garage, and slowly, but surely, the banging gets louder and louder as though, Bob said, this thing was throwing rocks or boulders at the side of the building. And Bob told me that he didn't think the same was trying to break in because. He thought just by the size of it that it could easily busted through the door in them. But instead, it was trying to terrorize them to really elicit some fear from them. And that's why it was throwing these boulders and smashing around, and eventually the noise stopped, and everyone ran to their car, and darted off and went home and the next day they came back and found these giant footprints where this creature was said to have been in, you know, there's similar creatures in other areas, Missouri has what is called Momo mount Vernon Illinois, which is not too far from this area. You've been talking about has a monster as well, so different names for this what I think could be the same creature. She Chad, I do too.

"And it was like the most fun anybody's ever had because the the mustache will sometimes end up on somebody's face and a lot of time it will come so close to ending up on somebody's face that everybody. At sometimes it'll happen like somebody will turn their head to camera and now turned into the bus just perfectly and other times it'll end up like like perfectly on the front of a motorcycle. So it looks like the motorcycle into the mustache. We laughed and laughed so much. And I've since I brought a mustache to other parties and play, and it was always such a huge hit. And then my brother who's a wonderful illustrator. I came up with rules of play like a scoring guide. Like, you know, the most point you can get is if the mustache ends up like on Abe Lincoln's face, you know somebody who has a beard but no mustache God. They end up with the most as Abe Lincoln or any Amish person. Yeah, that's the most points. You can get all kinds of other scenarios where you get points and and my brother illustrated the scoring guide beautifully and marketed it. I've I went to and I did a lot of research on like fads. I read Dr fads book and I like I tried to take it quite seriously as business knows. Yes, this was banking. I finally did it like five roundabout there. And it was it was ridiculous. It was very hard. So I bought poly bags and printed up a lot of the scoring guides and I bought a little cardboard header cards. Stapled it to each kid had a mustache, baba, mustaches in bulk, and it was just like, never going to be profitable and never not going to be a pain in the neck because the orders would come in many hundreds of them every anytime in order came in, I would have to go downstairs to the storage room in my house, and I have to pick up a mustache. Put them in the stable thing to get an envelope, hard envelope and usually had to go to the post office because people were either ordering anywhere between one and ten. I said, you could order, and so the weight was variable. And so it was a. Yeah, but the good product, if you have one out there you very lucky. 'cause he's I'm not doing it. I, I might get back into it or give it away as gifts or something like that. Yeah. Now feels like you could just partner someone that would do all that. I know you mean we sold superego merchandise than I would have to just get a CD order once or twice a week and be like, oh, there's no, there's no apparatus as me doing it. Getting out the stapler. Good old American crip, but the guy, the guy who created the wacky wall walkers, devoted his life to it. And it is an interesting story because this was a construction byproduct. This rubber that if you guys in the in the lab or whatever, on the on, the whatever on the floor figured out on Florida at the wall, and it takes a while to walk down the wall, and he just saw that and he some money and he liked quit his job and he spent his entire life going around to Toyko bears and like pushing this thing, who would do that? What I mean, what would make you think that that was going to be worthwhile? I guess if you have nothing else going on, that's the only thing I could think of where you see that. I think I would see that as like, oh, that's a Pathak could take. He may see it and go, I found the key. This is everything. And those were everywhere. They were in cereal boxes and right. Oh, I did not have that kind of determined to make mustache TV a big part of your life. Okay. So let's wrap it up with talking about the fact that the Andy daily podcast pilot project is out now free. What a joy. This thing is to have been able to be involved with this in the first place. It's been a dream and I love it. I love doing it. We did a season of eight, and then we only waited for years to do another season of eight and they were on Stitcher for a little while and people seem to love him, and now they're in front of the pay wall.
