"acosta" Discussed on Mental Illness Happy Hour
"Dive into some surveys. That what we should do. Now if you like it the feel up to it. This is awesome moment filled out by boots and she writes. My mother was recently diagnosed with a rare degenerative neurological condition that amongst other changes his caused her to lose the ability to use her left hand because of her mobility challenges. I have started to drive to her home to help her. On a more regular basis when i get addressed her left hand tenses up and does its own thing we crack up as i try to get into it into a sleeve and it absolutely does not. Cooperate is though it doesn't belong to her body we say. Get that hand into shape. What does it think it's doing being able to laugh with. Her has been such a bomb throwing the heartbreak of her condition. And i maternally grateful for her grace and humor in handling this huge transition. Being able to cry from laughing is a great way to balance out the normal sad crying. Thank you for that one. And i personally needed to read that one because with the health stuff that i'm going through my brain projects it to a place where there will be no joy there will be no human connection and it's and it's going to degrade everything and it never occurs to me in those moments that if the worst case scenario did happen that it could be a vehicle to become closer to other people and to see beauty in the in the darkness i've experienced in dealing with addiction and trauma all these other things yet our brain forgets those things. Why is it that we forget that but we remembered the kid that insulted us in third grade. There must be some evolutionary purpose to our brain remembering the negative and forgetting the positive anyway. Thank you for that that beautiful survey that s. Just what i needed to read. This is a shame in secret survey filled out by a woman who calls herself sitting on the bathroom floor. She's in her. Twenties identifies as straight was raised in a stable and safe environment. Never been sexually physically or emotionally abused. Darcus thoughts i think about how i forced. Believe me onto myself. I was deep into it into a binge eating disorder. But i started to convince myself that i was just a normal fat girl. Who was extra worried about her eating. So i started forcing myself to throw up deep down. I'm proud to be polemic because it at least means that i have strenght contradict the damage due to myself daily even if it doesn't totally reverse the damage darkest secrets. My university is rated best campus food in the country. But i don't let myself eat any of it. I forced myself to been john. Brown rice is punishment for my eating disorder. And then i skip class and sit on the bathroom floor and think about how much i hate myself. I purge but not enough to make any significant difference. I don't actually purge to get rid of the calories but instead to cause some sort of damage to myself. I may self-sabotager and i force myself to distance myself from others. So that i feel isolated and depressed sexual fantasies most powerful to you. I dream of having a relationship with a boy who lives on my floor in college but deep down. I know that. I'm way to body dismore fake to have a valid sexual relationship with anyone sharing this makes me sad and anxious that might eating disorder will never go away. You know all the stuff that we've talked about so far this is this is the textbook textbook that the illness in the brain hogging the microphone and doing all the talking using words like always in net for and isolating and pulling away you know like a like a wounded animal just wanting to curl up in the corner and it breaks my heart to to To read this. Because i i know when i think probably the majority of you listening no to some degree what that feels like we just feel like nobody is gonna get us. You know. nobody's gonna love us. I have to be perfect before someone will love me. And that's such a lie. What if anything would you like to say to someone you haven't been able to. I would tell my parents. And i'm not okay. Even though i keep assuring them that i am. I would tell my nutrition major adviser to fuck off because i have an eating disorder. And there's no way. I'm going to become a registered dietitian and think about food for the rest of my life. What if anything do wish for. I wished to be skinny again. I wished to want to get out of bed to not think about food all the time and to form meaningful relationships. You know i am. I am not a therapist. But they're they're clearly sounds like there is depression involved because you struggled to get out of bed and i have a feeling that that depression is one of the things that that is going to have to be dealt with for the other things to ea eats. You know those of us that that have addictions. The trauma and depression and anxiety can be things that are the gasoline addiction runs on. And just a thought. But maybe seeing a therapist or Talk into a psychiatrist. Just kind of weighing your options It might give you some some momentum to begin to deal with the the eating disorder which it sounds like feels completely overwhelming right now and You sound like a really really sweet sensitive young woman. And i've just sending you just send you some love. Sandy newsom love. This is a happy moment from chronically mentally ill and she writes.

Anderson Cooper compares Trump to an 'obese turtle' following White House press conference
"Hear a little bit from some of the folks at CNN because They had a big problem with Donald Trump in that press conference yesterday, and hopefully you heard it here at 93 WNBC listen to Anderson Cooper after the president's speech that is the president of United States that is the most powerful person in the world and we see him. Like an obese turtle on his back, flailing in the hot thing, realizing his time is over. Okay, an obese turtle flailing in the hot sun. Now before the speech, you had Jim Acosta doing his usual monologue. The president, I suspect is very frustrated about this. We've been seeing the tweets summon all caps all day long. Some being labeled by Twitter is being false and misleading on the president, You know, he hates that He wants to get around that coming out to the podium and having us take this on live television. Gives him a way of getting around those those types of restrictions. And so I suppose, in addition to the presidential seal being slapped on that lectern behind me, they're probably ought to be a surgeon general Warning what you're about to hear from the President, United States. May not be in line with the facts may be hazardous to your democracy may be hazardous to the counting of the votes. I suspect that you know, when the president comes out here, we're going to see a fair amount of bending of the truth. And I just think we just all have to be prepared for that. You know, we can tiptoe through the tulips and dance around the truth here, Anderson We're going to say, Well, we've we've seen over the last four years. This president will lie and lie and lie purposes and I suspect we're going to be seeing more of that when he comes out here.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Among Us game watched by 400,000
"Ocasio Cortez and Ellen Omar played the popular video game among us with big names, streamers. NPR's Andrew Lemonde has the story, everyone. It all happened pretty quickly. On Monday, representative Acosta Cortez asked on Twitter if anyone wanted to play the game among us with her on switch to get out the vote. Congresswoman is a known gamer, but she'd never played among us before and said it looked like fun. A bunch of people flooded her replies. And by the next evening, Okay, I go here and I'm supposed to pretend to do stuff, right? Just Tio back up a bit. Among us is a two year old game that's gone popular since the Corona virus pandemic you and other players complete tasks, But every game one or two of you are secret impostors who have to kill the others. The rest of the players have to figure out who the imposter is, and kicked him off. The ship That would include AOC. It made a certain is that he saw us. He kills someone, and we got a vote her off there, right. And if they see the kill happen, the event drew huge numbers, a twitch spokesperson said. At one point, representative Ocasio court says had 435,000 people watching Hassan Piker was one of the streamers playing last night. He's a popular political commentator on twitch and help get things set up. A lot of people are not gonna be ableto authentically get on twitch and be able to just throw something like this together In 24 hours, I was amazed I was shocked Piker who says his audiences generally 18 to 24 year olds on the older side for a twitch. Says the event proves the platform as a viable tool for campaigning and for cultivating future voters. But it'll only work if the candidate is genuine. People on switch are pretty good at sniffing out actual imposters. Andrew Limbong
Fauci disagrees with Trump on coronavirus
"The United States has not rounded the corner that is from Dr Anthony Fauci. The Nation's top infectious disease expert delivering a blunt specifically worded rebuttal to the president to, of course, Said said the other day that the US is rounding the corner on the pandemic. I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned the Statistics Andrea. The. Disturbing. Disturbing. The US Steph told you shy of two hundred, thousand number of new cases hovering around forty, thousand, a day and an influential model. At the White House sites all the time predicts the death toll will more than double by the end of the year. Four hundred thousand people dead by the end of December, and yet trump's behavior continues to scorn mask-wearing or social distancing his rally yesterday you see it three thousand supporters more than that. Actually packing an airport hangar in Michigan without masks without social distancing. And and you might say why why are they doing that? It is clear. They are following the leader the person that they are there to support. They are following the president just listen to them and then listen to the president. Care for it. It's that simple. I don't see it for myself. I am young and likable are year are not young. People are very strong. It gets this horrible disease. Temperature taken already, and I'm not saying not necessarily here. Everybody's been tested and I've been tested a hard time understanding people when they. So that's why I don't wear. You can hear me right now I can hear you you're going to have to take. You can take it off your your health how many your wet Well if you don't take it off your very muffled. Those trump supporters Jim Acosta speaking to them getting those very powerful Soundbites Jeremy Diamond is out front and Jeremy You know very strong words from Dr Voucher tonight specifically using the words rounding the corner. No, we're not right. Exact words the president used to rebut his claim. Yeah, no questionnaire in Doctor FAUCI typically tries to avoid directly contradicting the president's or directly confronting and putting himself in opposition to the president, and it tends to happen quite a bit simply by the fact that the president often downplayed the threat of this virus in Dr, Fauci is stating the facts, but it is notable to see dumpster here directly contradicting the president saying, I have to disagree with him on that and he does because ultimately Dr Foudy does rely on. The facts you relies on the science and the facts and the science show that the president by any metric you consider is wrong when he says that the United States is rounding the corner on this and of course, we started this week Erin with the revelation that the president had intentionally misled the American public about the deadliness of virus. He said that he likes to downplay it, and what's remarkable is that we are finishing this week with the president continuing to do. Exactly that because the president is saying that we around the corner, he is saying that the numbers of corona virus cases are plummeting. When in fact we know that we are at a plateau of nearly forty thousand cases nearly a thousand deaths per day and Dr found she is warning about a potentially difficult fall and winter, and of course, it's also remarkable when you see this rally that the president is holding three thousand more than three thousand people huddled together very few. Of them wearing masks and obviously it's coming from the fact that the president in his rhetoric has really downplayed those things. Yes he has acknowledged in in recent weeks. That mask wearing is important. He is called a patriotic, but he is still not modeling that public health behavior, and of course, for months on end, the president downplayed some of those significant public health safety measures and as you just showed in that video, the president's words. So often being mimicked by his own supporters. Jeremy Thank you very much earlier. We spoke to David Plyler these local Republican official in North Carolina and he spoke out this week urging president trump to wear a mask during his rally in that state the state by the way I wanna make it clear has a mask mandate. So we asked him why why does he feel the president should wear a mask and here's what he said. The president is a citizen of the United, States Nettie wants North Carolina. is asked to voluntarily do that not is a matter of health alone. But in the leaders situation, it allows the leader to be seen by people he or she represents and they generally hopefully would follow suit as an elected official. I've been asked to look out for the safety and health of our community, and that's exactly what I was doing. So. Yeah. Know that's just the reality right? That's how it should be but this has become political and plyler happens to be Republican. So he got some feedback on his comment about the president. Here's what he told us about. Well I got backlash from everybody they didn't call it say I'm a Republican or Democrat. I hadn't felt on for south. Carolina. Who taught me a cuss words? A sailor has never heard before. We also ask piler why he felt the need to speak out right? Why? Why did he do it? He could have just been quiet and just rolled his eyes and been angry about it but he didn't he spoke out and he said that mash to be worn, the president should wear one. Why do you do that? It's something we have to do. No chores. And this is not the first time that plague of this time has hit this country nor will it be the last I'm sorry to say in we've had plagued across the United States. We've had things in Europe. We've had him an England China just goes around the world I just hope we can get out of this. So. reasonable. So calm collected. I want to go now to Dr Jonathan Reiner Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at George Washington University Hospital who else would advise the white? House. Medical team under President George. W.. Bush. So you heard Dave plyler right I mean it just just just so reasonable. So clear. And and he wants the president's followers to to wear masks wants the president to wear masks you heard them. They they they scorn it. They disdain it. It comes from the top. Do you think it's possible to pandemic would be a lot less worse if the president had from day one said where mask. I think if the president had said from day one everyone is wearing a mask. We'd have got forty five thousand deaths in this country and I say that because that's extrapolating German experience they've had a middle of the road haven't been the best. They haven't been the worst they been okay in their pandemic response. And they've had about ten thousand deaths. We have four times the population of Germany. We'd have about forty, five, thousand deaths in this country. So about one hundred, fifty, thousand people would be alive if you WANNA think about why we still have forty thousand cases day and a thousand deaths today in this country is because. We're still talking about masks. It's so basic. It just seems so nefarious now that we've heard the president. Really articulately express how dangerous this virus was on February seven. He knew the route he knew he knew how lethal the virus was. He knew that this was ACM dramatic people. He understood yet he decided not to protect the people. It was a conscious decision not to protect the people even now even today. Do you think his supporters would go and be unmasked. If they knew what he knew you think Herman Cain would have gone to Tulsa. Sit there shoulder shoulder without a mask knowing what the president knew. So so you know you Dr. Fouled. She the president said that we were rounding the corner the latest in his many salvoes sang right it's going away. But that's what you just said. Doctor felt she came out today and we're not rounding the corner, right? I mean he didn't. He didn't talk around it or generally obliquely rebutted he rebutted it using word for word because he felt it was important and then he went on to say this. When you're in the middle of a pin damage and you're trying hard to address all the appropriate issues, it is truly a waste of time. The bunk nonsense but unfortunately, we had to do that. Frustration is coming through in a way I haven't seen it before. I admire the man. So much I'm he is a brilliant scientist who's devoted his life to protecting America from all kinds of horrible pathogens. And he still added and he he he he does not get discouraged. Look. It is a waste of time for him to have to deal with some this nonsense, but it's necessary. He has to debunk we rely on him. If only the the White House brought him out to these press events and had an let the press on Moss as can questions wouldn't that be refreshing? I'm grateful for him everyday
Officials battle online misinformation along with wildfires
"Are these historically large wildfires continue to rage out west fifteen people have already died a whopping four million acres already devastated across California as well as Oregon where you can see right here why the mayor there declared a state of emergency, the governor also publicly pleading. For the trump administration to support its governmental emergency response officials on the ground, say Donald trump failing them through fashion. Some critics compare his sort of public denial of even admitting what's going on with the wildfires that posture to of course, is deceitful approach to cove it. Who reports today are the things are even worse than all of that because right wing conspiracy theories supported publicly by Donald, trump are leading to dangerous activity. Again, we're living in a time where misinformation can be dangerous to your health and officials are warning. They're getting flooded with false phone calls fanned by Q. Not which incorrectly try to blame the fires on trump's perceived opponents. Translation what happens on facebook doesn't always stay on facebook a real world emergency political propaganda is making it harder for these firefighters to get the real information warnings they need as they go out and do their work and risk their lives. That's why sheriff's departments are pleading with people with messages like this just stop spreading rumors stop calling nine one one with political pranks. They say it has now gotten to the point where it is hampering their bandwidth to respond to the fires in real emergencies. It's twenty twenty. So sometimes, we have to state the obvious around here. Do not call nine, one one with Q. Non trumpy fake news propaganda. You do have the right to say whatever you want. Typing it up on the Internet you do not have the right to deceitfully thwart firefighting in the middle of this very real crisis for those calling from the West Coast some of these calls have been traced. If you need to think about it like this. Misinformation is expensive in the house you save could be your own. As mentioned, we're thrilled to have married trump live in the hour but I want to begin with some of our analysts, Jason, Johnson professor of politics at Morgan, State University and Katty Kay Washington anchor for BBC News. Good evening to both you. Evening Jason There's much talk about misinformation and people don't like lying even when it's just verbal if you want to be that specific. But given these twin crises, your view of the cost of this kind of misinformation. Rex It's massive. I'm in California right now and the difficulty the difficulty that local officials are having in managing people when it comes to these wall fires is immense and is partially because accused on, it's partially because the president basically sort of thumbs his nose that these sorts of Issues v rate of destruction that is happening out here. Basically, the size of central park is being burned every other day in northern California Oregon Central Park. Every other day is being burned devastated. varies a haze over the sky on a regular basis at the bottom. Of A pool, you can see ash settling after every single night. So the idea that people are wasting public resources with crazy conspiracy theories because they think that the fires were created by you know five G. or invading Muslims or George Soros doesn't help the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of people were either going to be out of their homes or not able to stay safely in their homes. During the time, we have a pandemic where rescuing people in putting them into shelters is all the more difficult. So yeah, this is propaganda that's Live when trump lies people are dying. Well. Caddy at the White House has often tried to reposition the Cova conversation in the election as well. This hit everywhere. This is global thing. it seems that this week there is a rightful focus and scrutiny on the president's leadership on his honesty on his approach, which is relevant. As, you go into election about who you want to continue to deal with this crisis or do you want to change the commander in chief? Yell the the virus has hit everywhere but my fourteen year old daughter is an online schooling here in Washington. Her friend in France in class. A. Friend in London is in class her friend in China is in plus her friend in Senegal. is in class and a friend in Germany is in class they're all going to school. And the reason they're going to school is because those countries have handled this better. So that's a direct comparison and in a globalised world. Our children here in the United States make no mistake about it that losing out because those other kids are in class going to school at advancing while orchids not advancing. So we're kicking this down to the next generation as well but. We elect leaders to be able to walk and Chew Gum at the same time. It is totally possible that you can give people a facts that you can trust the American people with the facts of something it is at also be inspirational and motivational and lift them up with a plan and show leadership. Those two things are not mutually exclusive and I think that's what the president is mistaking when he says, he didn't want people to panic and so he downplayed the virus. And gatty talk about how that stacks up in a global context that I think is very interesting to remember, and then how people are receiving these messages reporter. Jim Acosta spoke. To some people going to the trump rally take a look. Our about him because there's no. It's a it's a fake pandemic created to destroy the United. States of America. The president said the Bob Woodward there is a virus but corona virus that it is devil that's his opinion. Chatty. Where do you start i? Mean you stop by asking all of our leaders to come out with consistent clear accurate honest messaging when I really felt for Anthony. FAUCI. In that interview because I've interviewed g and he is so careful not to wade into political waters where there's going to be a difference between him and the president because he said that will be the only story and he is trying to get out the public health story doesn't WANNA make it a political story about. A disagreement he clearly feels now he has to set a Mauka. He has to wait into the politics of this and say, no when the President says, we are turning a corner. We're not actually turney. We're in this for the long haul because when the president says, we're turning a corner when he says, we're about to get over this or that is magically going to disappear what happens that guy doesn't wear a mosque when he attends a rally because he thinks it's not there. That's the risk. Door Jason. Trump can say you know he can see the light at the end of the tunnel. All we once it's a train right it's a train coming at us. We are about to head to fall which is flu season. This is a time where you have kids going back to school but you have people who have to shelter in place more because it's cold you can't eat outside and that makes us Much more difficult and I think are the real danger here is that as we recognize that the president is grotesquely incompetent, right easies driven by sort of racial malice and paying off his friends and everything else like that. At the base of all of this, we cannot forget to key things. One that the president is still trying to steal the election with the post office that you still have. Right. Wing Supreme. Courts in Wisconsin right now that are trying to people get absentee ballots. It's you have the president, the Republican Party suing in Iowa to prevent people from getting their absentee ballots that he's still trying to steal the election at the same time that you have literally millions of. Americans. Now, out of work who be out of their homes who are being evicted, which will make it more difficult for them to. Actually vote. So as much as the president is, is a horrible human being and trying to bankrupt this country and pay off his friends and stay in office. He is also doing things isn't competence has disrupted the ability of regular people remove him from office in a democratic way. We can't ever lose sight that because we can't get rid of him everything that's happening. Now we'll be ten times worse by nature.

"This. Same Temper- leads us to our final theory. A Costa's death was an assassination. A Costa was known as a troublemaker and rabble rouser. He was a political leftist in a time. When fears of communism were still widespread law enforcement routinely kept tabs on him and would even show up at his door looking for him. In addition to offering legal services to fellow Chicanos. In the late sixties a Costa had become one of the leaders in the fight for equal rights. He marched with protesters and gave speeches at rallies. He successfully argued that Los Angeles County had systematically discriminated against people with Spanish last names in an effort to keep them off grand juries in nineteen sixty nine he defended a group called the biltmore six. These were Chicano activists with the Brown berets. A group that organized protests and fought to bring attention to Chicano Civil Rights on April twenty fourth of that year. The group protested speech by California Governor Ronald Reagan at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. Several fires were set during the protests. The biltmore six were accused of arson but Costa argued that the fires had actually been started by an undercover police officer who had framed the group. His arguments worked in court and the defendants were acquitted but blaming an undercover cop hadn't won him any friends in law enforcement and as a Costa gained more experience working on the front lines. His perspectives became even more radical in nineteen seventy. He embarked on a controversial campaign for Sheriff of Los Angeles County. He didn't expect to win but he hoped his candidacy would bring attention to that you. Connor rights movement. His primary stands was intentionally provocative he planned to disband the sheriff's department and rebuild it from the ground up. He stated the police are the violent arm of the rich. And I want to get rid of them. Though he ultimately lost the race he came in second among four candidates and his campaign highlighted the abuses of the sheriff's department but this made him an even bigger target if law enforcement hadn't liked him before his political campaign. They hated him now. It didn't take long before they found a reason to arrest him. Accustomed was caught with drugs. In an undercover sting in Hollywood and arrested in June nineteen seventy-one though he was only fined for the infraction. It played a significant role in his decision to leave. La and embark on a full time writing career. A Costa was also known to support the Chicano ideology of the nation of ASTA. Lan Asta Lan was the traditional name. For the homeland of the ancient Aztecs. Chicano idealist advocated for secession from the United States to form. A Nation of Chicanos. Ruled by Chicanos. At the end of his book autobiography of a Brown Buffalo. A Costa spoke of this dream ending with a sort of call to arms. He wrote when I have one million Brown Buffalo's on my side. I will present the demands for a new nation to both the US government and the United Nations the FBI had opened a file on acoustic in nineteen seventy when he ran for sheriff informants within the Chicano Movement had passed on information about a coastas whereabouts and actions but the file was closed in December nineteen seventy-three not long before coastas disappearance. Could that have been because they decided to silence him? Once and for all federal agents may have killed a Costa and then disposed of his body by doing so they got rid of a nuisance who according to his F. B. I. File had been involved in civil disturbances and anti-american Demonstrations. He was a potential revolutionary. And he needed to be silenced. A Costa sister. Anita advocated this theory. She stated they used to come knocking at my door. When Oscar was living with me they wanted to get rid of him they wanted him to disappear so did Oscar. A coastas dream of new nation. Cost him his life. Well it's interesting that the FBI closed its file on a Costa just before his death. It probably wasn't because they decided to assassinate him. It was because he was no longer believed to be involved in revolutionary activities. That's understandable since he quit his high profile legal career two years earlier. Furthermore a Costa doesn't seem to have been threatening enough to justify a political hit while he was one of the prominent faces of the movement. There were others. Who outshined him in both notoriety and controversy? Why were they permitted to live when a Costa had to be killed instead? We think it's most likely that. Costa died in a drug related disagreement. A family friend confirmed that he was involved with traffickers and his family had plenty of reason to believe it his comment to Marco about a boat full of white snow may very well have been referring to a shipment of cocaine bound for the border town of Mexicali a coastas temper and brash personality where well-known trademarks he was combative and fearless and his drug use enhanced his sense of his own importance. It's not difficult to imagine him. Saying the wrong thing to the wrong person and paying for it with his life the drug dealers who killed him would have had plenty of motive and the means to hide a customer's body. Even Marco Costa believes that this is how his father died. He said the people he was involved with. We think he ended up mouthing off getting into a fight and getting killed..

"Soon. A new romance developed a sign that his life was back on track in Nineteen fifty-six a Costa met and married a woman named Betty Dowd. Their love helped restore his will to live and he began taking classes at the local junior college and San Francisco state in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. They had their first and only child. A boy named Marco after earning his undergraduate degree a Costa took night classes at San Francisco Law School. He hoped to use his charisma and gift for persuasion to help a new 'cause he wanted to defend marginalized Chicanos as a Baptist preacher and Missionary. He'd been on the right track but he'd been preaching the wrong message to the wrong people for all the wrong reasons now. He was on a new path. During law school. A Costa began to send some of his best poetry short stories and novels out to publishers. Though none were accepted it was during this time that he first adopted the pen name Zeta Letters E in Spanish of Costa was inspired by the fictional spanish-american freedom fighter known Azzaro. He saw himself in the character. A kind of urban Chicano robinhood he also began to use the pseudonym the Brown buffalo not unlike his fellow Chicanos. The Buffalo had also been hunted by Americans since the nineteenth century with activist fervor quickly spreading in California. In the late sixties. His timing was perfect. A Costa graduated from law school in Nineteen Sixty five and now the brown buffalo was ready to charge headfirst into the fight for Chicano civil rights but his desire to help others was in constant conflict with his personal demons. Drugs and alcohol plagued him in the years to come. These dueling qualities would inevitably lead to a coastas debt..

"Oscar. A Costa wore many hats throughout his lifetime in addition to being a father and a civil rights attorney he served in the US military and worked as a preacher and a missionary a Costa also struggled with drug addiction. For most of his life he was both inspiring and infuriating making as many friends as enemies. He was the author of two semi autobiographical novels in the early nineteen seventies through those pieces he helped to invent what has been called guns. Oh journalism a style of reporting that incorporates. The writer as part of the story along his journey of self discovery. He became friends with prolific writer. Hunter S Thompson in fact a Costa inspired the character of Dr Gonzo in Thompson's bestselling book fear and loathing in Las Vegas as well as the title of a panic at the disco album. But in May nineteen seventy four. A Costa took a trip south of the border once there he spoke briefly to his son. Marco before disappearing without a trace. There are a few theories about what happened to a Costa in the wake of his disappearance. The first asserts that a Costa overdosed or had a drug induced heart attack. His substance habit was well known amongst his family and friends during that final phone call. He hinted that he'd been using cocaine. According to this a- Costa may have died in Mexico his body buried before it could be identified. Our second solution suggests that a Costa was killed in a drug deal gone. Bad a coast didn't just use drugs. He dealt them when he was hard up for cash. Some believe that a transaction went south and a Costa died in a shootout with Mexican drug lords our third and final theory hints towards a larger conspiracy that the United States government tractor Costa down and killed him. It's well known that a Costa had become troublesome to the feds because of his revolutionary efforts. It's possible that the American government did away with him during that fateful trip to Mexico though he died in Mexico. Oscar Acosta's parents always wanted him to be American. They were working class. Chicano immigrants who raised Oscar in California's San Joaquin Valley a coastas. Parents wanted to leave their identities as Mexicans behind them. They believed that this was the only way for their children to get ahead by starting fresh as Americans when Oscar was born in nineteen thirty five he had birthright US citizenship and according to a Costa Sister Anita their parents insisted that their children dress speak and act like white people to fit in with their California Community Anita frustratingly recalled. My mother wanted us to be white. That was her main goal in life. At first Oscar didn't understand why he had to pretend to be someone he wasn't. He was confused and angry. But at the same time Costa saw the way. Many chicanos were treated by mainstream white society when he was just eight years old. The zoot suit. Riots broke out in Los Angeles papers reported the news of White sailors attacking and beating young. Well dressed chicanos. Particularly those who wore trendy. Zoot suits the alleged motivation for the attacks. Was that the fashionable clothes. Which used a lot of fabric were unpatriotic during wartime rationing? But the racial overtones of the attacks were impossible to miss nevertheless coastas father. Manuel continued to instill patriotism in his son. Accustomed patiently listened to the stories of men wells time in the US Navy during World War. Two Manuel wanted to raise a Costa to an American fighter. And the boy was happy to oblige a Costa recalled. He wanted me to compete more than anything else. When I was five. He encouraged me to argue and fight with him. I guess that's where I became as nasty as I am. But a Costa didn't confine his brawls to the house in Nineteen forty-six he and several other. Chicano boys were playing on the streets of their small town riverbank. But something on the pavement caught a Costa Zai a leaflet with an American flag on the front instead of picking up the pamphlet. Costa made a scene of spitting on the Flyer. His friends were outraged. But a Costa didn't care. An argument broke out and escalated to an ugly fight. A Costa was outnumbered and ended up losing to the other boys but the incident only fueled his fire more Costa temper worsened as he grew older key regularly found himself at odds with other kids not to mention. He was built heavier than his peers. Which only added to his identity issues? He would later write. I was obese. Ugliest a pig and without any redeeming qualities whatsoever. He felt like a failure and believed he was incapable of being the Macho Man. His father wanted him to be but over time his desire to fit in outweighed his anger as a Chicano he felt inferior to the wealthy white people in his community and he even began to see the logic of his parents. Beliefs about assimilation. So teenage Costa gave in. He began to play the role his parents wanted for him. He played sports and even became president of his class at the same time. He found a creative outlet in writing. A Costa. Port is bottled up emotions onto the page. But it didn't solve all of his problems to deal with as difficult emotions fifteen-year-old Acoustic began drinking in high school. He developed a reputation. As a partier and boozer and by the time he graduated he suffered from chronic stomach ulcers resulting from his alcohol abuse. This pain would trouble him for the rest of his life. Costa had every intention of going to college but life got in the way when he finished high school in the early fifties. He was dating a white girl named Alice. He was head over heels about her and the two had discussed marriage. He truly believed she was the love of his life. But Alice's parents disliked chicanos especially Oscar. They were outraged that their daughter was dating someone with Brown skin not to mention Alice's baptist. Family hated the fact. That Oscar was a Catholic. Oscar was playing a losing game. Alice's parents forced her to break it off with Oscar leading to a terrible argument between the two so bad in fact that the police were called to the scene and officers had to haul a still screaming. Costa away to add insult to injury. Alice went on to marry someone else later that year. A Costa was crushed. He fell into a pit of depression which caused him to lose interest in his studies. He began thinking he wanted to do something bigger and better with his life in one thousand nine hundred fifty two. He followed in his father's footsteps and enlisted in the Air Force. He was stationed at Hamilton. Air Force Base which meant relocating to San Francisco in an unfamiliar city and still healing from his breakout with Alice. A Costa turned to prayer during their relationship he'd been irresistibly drawn to the Baptist faith and that draw didn't lesson after their split he decided to convert and became a practicing Baptist in San Francisco most chicanos including his family. We're Catholic at this time. Catholicism was a religion of outsiders new immigrants from south and Central America Ireland and Italy were Catholic mayflower families were Protestant so converting to a Protestant denomination was another way for Costa to assimilate as with many other interests in his life. He poured himself into his new found. Faith he believed this was his calling his reason for existing he poured over the Bible and even began preaching in his church then when he was transferred to Panama with the Air Force. He ministered to the local population as well as to his military comrades. He set up a church in a nearby leper colony and taught the Bible to them as well. A Costa found that he was an extremely charismatic speaker and had a gift for persuasion. Big Brash people naturally looked up to him as a leader in fact he believed he could convince people of just about anything but as he neared the end of his time in the air force in nineteen fifty six. He was plagued by doubts that were often accompanied. With long nights of drinking and worse he'd begun to abuse harder drugs. Stimulants psychedelics and amphetamines. Well under the influence. He nursed doubts about the stories he'd been so passionately preaching. For four years he delved into his Bible especially the gospels after some thought a Costa ultimately had to face a shocking reality. He didn't believe any of it was true to his mind. Religion was an unreliable mash up of contradictory accounts and confusing the allergy. His faith fell apart and a Costa was left. Crushed despondent an aimless. He thought he'd found his purpose and it had been ripped from beneath his feet. What would he do with his life now? The only things he could really depend on where the alcohol and drugs he used to numb the pain soon. A Costa hit rock bottom after being discharged from the service and returning home. He attempted suicide. His family was shocked and heartbroken. They insisted Costa Check himself into a psychiatric facility to get the help he so desperately needed thanks to their urging a Costa started to turn around although he didn't get clean his drug use wasn't controlling his life.
"acosta" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Tonight are Joyce Vance Former U._S.. Attorney for the northern district of Alabama and Jennifer Rubin Opinion Writer at the Washington Post both both are M._S._N._B._C. Contributor. Thank you to both of you for joining us on a Friday night Joyce. Let's start with you. There are inconsistencies in the argument that Alex Acosta put forward in his in his statement earlier this week very very different from his resignation but he said things that others have come out and said simply aren't true that victims had an opportunity to look at the sweetheart deal that he did or that they had other avenues that they could pursue and there does seem to be evidence that he may have have been in violation of rights that victims actually have under the law court has found that he did violate the victim's rights to be notified and it seems relatively clear that whatever they did in this case they made every effort to conceal it from victims which is contrary to Existing D._O._J.. Rules this suggestion that you can somehow avoid the obligation you have to notify victims of the outcome of a of a case by not indicting dating it is I think just very difficult to reconcile with the reasons that we have that policy in place so everything that cost a says in this regard contrary to the apology that he should have been making to these victims. Victims I think only doug him in deeper to the problems. It's interesting because there are a lot of reasons Jennifer Y cabinet secretaries come under fire and various scandals but this one is pretty black and white. There's nobody in the country who thinks that the things Jeffrey Epstein did are tolerable on a societal level however when asked about this the president said today that he was willing to live with anything and he didn't ask for a Costa's resignation. Let's listen to what he said. Well Alex believe that I'm willing to live with anything John. I think you know me. I've lived through things that you wouldn't believe Jennifer. What do you make of the president's handling of this well? This is typical for trump. He never expresses any sympathy any empathy any horror on behalf of the victims. He says that Alex Acosta Kosta was a victim. He says that alka Kosta was doing a great job. That's almost verbatim. The same language used for Rob Porter for example the former White House Staff Secretary who was very convincing Pictorial Taurel evidence was spousal abuser on this is how trump operates he thinks that in any of these cases the man who is accused is the victim and I would address a couple of things one. I think we shouldn't shouldn't ignore that very powerful interview at the top of your show with that girl who still a girl in some ways expressing I was just a kid. I didn't know if that doesn't break your heart and explain explain the absolute Modesi the malice the evil that Jeffrey Epstein was encountering and that in some sense that out accosted took advantage of that as well they were just kids they wouldn't know it would be sort of frozen out of the process also he would get this wrapped up and go on with his career and the other thing is that he did lie. He specifically said that he had to be the one to swoop into this because the state was going to let him go the state prosecutor spoke up yesterday and said you know the feds always have the option to bring their own case by the way there was a fifty three page indictment he could have pursued that he could have investigated that so I have really very little comprehension for how someone like Alex Acosta can look himself in the face look himself in the mirror in the morning and even less understanding for how Donald Trump who knew about this settlement when he hired him could have tolerated him this long.

"It's one case to say in Nineteen ninety-one when there are five hundred murders in the Brooklyn South precinct that you need a gun for protection now that there are fifty something murders and I just looked up these stats. What's you don't need a gun for protection? If you didn't have the gun he wouldn't have been shot. I mean there's comes a certain point where that becomes a less sympathetic argument. I think New York City's at that point so try and get shot first of all he got arrested almost certainly illegal. I know but like thinking that you need the gun for protect yeah but like you're taking these like nice rational statistics in your imagining that if that is the world as terrarium sees it and that's just not true like he lives in a much more specific universe in which there are the people who he felt threatened by. There's lots of evidence of this in the podcast. He talks about it a lot and explains why he felt like you needed to be protected in fact a few days before he got arrested for having a gun someone ahead like Rasta sister at a party. Those people were threatening him. I'm on social media and actually came to his house so the kind of abstraction of the lower homicide and shooting rate in New York those things are some kind of factor in people's minds but your own specific universe can be telling you something different from this larger picture rate right. Is that specific or is that subjective. It's subjective objectively. It's extremely unlikely that you're going to need a gun if the if he was living in London he might say well any protection and it's a knife and it would be much better for society well yeah but I feel like we're having this conversation as if like everybody's irrational actor and has like a total grasp on all of that so first of all in poor neighborhoods in Brooklyn the threat of shooting if you're a young black guy is much higher than it is overall but even absent that at people's perceptions of being threatened can be out of date right they can be like based on all the ideas they grew up with they can be based on what they see. In the movies based on the image they want to project that kind of subjective understanding of your life like you know looking at it as blake a white middle-class person from the outside. It's just like a different view things even if it's wrong I mean look drives decision to get a gun is misguided it lands him in a lot of trouble and you know one of the other characters in my podcast talks about like this idea of guns protecting you well when he had gone him he got shot like it doesn't even work in the moment of self defense the way people wanted to so I'm not I'm not defending the notion that guns protect people. I think that's wrong. I'm just saying that I think it's important understand stand where kids are coming from and to try to like think about what could change their world view as as opposed to just dismissing it but the way to convince a kid like terrarium that he doesn't need a gun is not to point at a stat is to change his lived experience the same kid in Chicago Kogo. I might not agree with but understand more once it becomes less and less objectively true that you're likely to get shot then it becomes less and less likely that kid is going to think he has a gun and my point point. Is that the thing that affects objective truth. Are things like programs that essentially say if you have a gun. You're doing some jail time. Look I feel like now are looping back to where we were before. I just disagree with you like that and threat of deterrence turns it when you talk to the kids who are arrested for gun possession in New York. They don't give a shit about that. That's not what they're thinking about it. They set one of them said to me like I'd rather go to prison for a couple of years. Then then be dead like they do see that that is a real threat. There are neighborhoods in Brooklyn and in New York even that remained dangerous or they've grown up with that memory of danger. It feels present to them. You know you can try to talk people out of it. You can give them other options. There are lots of ways to try to work with kids is to make them understand that they are making bad choices. There's a bigger better world out there for them but the idea that threatening them with prison that that's the thing that is going to convince them not to have a gun. I just don't think so we have lots of evidence that that is does not affect their mindset in the moment. These are rash teenagers right. We're talking about people whose brains are not fully developed like young rash boys and men. They're not as rational as you're being right now. We'll kids should yeah I mean and this is one of your bullet points. Oh terrible terrible Fred Fred's this is one of your action items wanted. Kids should be treated as kids charged is the name of the book. It's also the name of the slate podcast and the name of the woman behind both of these is emily basil on thank you emily.

We don't know where this goes but we do have a president who is a sexual Predator and this case has a lot of ties to him as well and roof. This is a story that could only happen in the trump presidency because this issue came out during the vetting of Alexa cost and he survived the trump vetting because because in trump vetting this isn't a problem well.

"Could we just roll Jim Acosta in the middle of the day in mcallen, Texas with his sunglasses on at the border fence, and what he discovered, and here's some of the steel slaps at the president's been talking about right here as you can see. Yes, you can't see through these lots to the other side of the US beco- border. But as we're walking along here, we're not seeing any kind of imminent danger. There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence here in the mcallen, Texas area. Matter of fact, there's some other businesses behind me along this highway. There's a gas station Burger King and so on, but no sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about as a matter of fact, it's pretty tranquil down here. Yeah. You know, where it's not in the San Diego area. This guy is crazy. First of all is this the worst system worst reporting ever versatile. I've just picked random space, and I'm going there. And by the way, the thing I'm against the wall is right here. So you could see through it. So it's more of a fence, which I might people are more for offense than a wall. But let me just show you it's completely effective. But instead I'm going to spin this as nobody's ear. There is no -mergency. Yes. Because the friggin wall is right there. Also, it might have something to do with your wearing sunglasses usually people are coming in the cover of darkness. Where was he when I went down to gallon Texas with our border patrol in the middle of the night. Do you remember do did you come with did not go with you? But I do we have danger to it. So you and I met and they still haven't gotten. You're right. Went down there. I watched the boats come over in the middle of the night. I watched the people come over in droves, mcallen, Texas is kind of a hot spot, but not in the middle of the day, not wear the border fences. Instead where there is no fence, Jim what a complete and utter dope. And everyone at CNN. Shame on you. Shame on would have stepped in earlier, but I will never stop Jim Acosta rats. Medico until it's over. I mean think about it ever. You're not a news guy. Right. No, news guy. Let's say you're in charge of CNN, and this dope comes on your screen. And you're watching it in the office, and your even your even against the border wall. Okay. You're against it. Let's say you're you're crazy against it. But you got a business to run you pick up the phone at Jim Acosta. Kutina, Mr. Heaton. Jim Acosta Jim Acosta's on the online to pick it up. And what do you say? I would say Jim we've got a hot story for you. It's logical fallacies. I, you know, I don't think that a across the border Boorda walls, a good use of funds. So I don't think this is a good that said though, the logical holes in it are much bigger than the current border wall. You know? And there's parts where it's mountainous. You're not gonna put a fence or a wall there, and there's like like again from from a from a safety issue if he were to focus on the math side of this. I'd I'd be with him on it where most of the drugs that are coming in. They're coming through legal ports. They're not coming from cross the border. Most of the forty percent of the people overstaying their visa, they're already here that said, though, if you pick a random spot of wall and go, look, it's peaceful. There's I don't know math that well, but it's like more than eighty feet like you could pick and choose wherever you want it to be into a cancer ward and gone. I've just I've just found this woman. She's cancer free. Every talking about cancer. She has cancer nurse team. I think Jim Acosta was aware of this controversy because his next report. Hold on. Yes. Layer before he posted after this happened. And he gets I'm getting beat up online. Everyone writing stories mocking him. I mean, he paid attention to. I think thing, oh, whatever. Jim Acosta's always paying attention to what people are saying about Jim Mukasa. That is the number one goal of Jim Mukasa every day. I'm going to I'm going to tonight. I have to post some Jim Acosta reports I'm going to do some Jim Acosta reports on Facebook. I can't take like that. But he he did his next report..

"This was an actual, you know, it happened a few days ago, and they're hundreds of miles away their hundreds and hundreds of that. That's not invasion who could ever have guessed. How could Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta have ever guessed that people hundreds of miles away moving in our direction would eventually reach our border. I mean, hundreds of miles away. That's like an eternity. They've just keep walking for forever. I mean, it was it was stupid on its face. Trump was entirely entirely in the right. And then the people charged the border. You can't just let them come in. And so the and they were throwing things at our border agents. As Trump said, they would Trump said, look, they did it in Mexico. What makes you think they're not going to do it? Here those pictures that Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta were that he was referring to those pictures pictures of them storming fences in Mexico. So Trump was absolutely right to say they were going to do that here as well. Why not why wouldn't they do the exact same thing? Totally in the right. And of course, now the networks play the gassing oats gassing of children. Oh, my the stuff on Twitter yesterday. Unbelievable, this inhuman beast this. And he is gassing children is gassing children. Here's the way the network played. It the images of the tear gas used at the US Mexico border seen across the country and the world thousands of migrants. From that caravan have now arrived into wanna some of them breaking through Mexican security US border patrol than firing tear gas at them this mother and her children among those caught indicate offs tonight. President Trump was asked about the tear gas. We met sixteen year old Henry covered those bandages and one of the things that he says is that. He's not going to stop. He wants to still get into the United States, and he's not going to quit now. Just because he was going to the glances forced to Thonis to close. The sandy seizure of port of entry one of the busiest on the planet for nearly seven hours thousands of people most there legally stranded at the border. Officers are trying to keep the peace after hundreds of mush the US Mexico border yesterday started as a peaceful March turned into chaos US, authorities fired tear gas at mostly adult males. But some of it women and children including Maria Mesa her escape captured in this dramatic photo. We caught up with her today. When I see that photo. I just want to cry. She says claiming that she wasn't crossing the border illegally, but trying to reach it to apply for asylum. So I told you that photo, right? It's going to win the Pulitzer. I told you it was a big big deal that picture it reminded me of the napalm girl. I don't know if you remember of seen the picture in one thousand nine sixty three in Vietnam the Southie. Aetna AMIS who are allies accidentally mistook a village for a force of Viet Cong, and they napalm them in this little girl came running naked out of the village screaming and that became an iconic picture, Richard Nixon at one point wondered was posed. I mean, people have been wondering about this picture was it pose it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. You know, as as boss tweed when said about the cartoons that brought help bring down his administration people don't read, but they can look at the pictures, and that's what they're depending on here. And of course, you know. Not only not only are. Well, let let's start with tear-gas. Let's start with this. The Washington Times has reported that the same tear gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deployment against a border mob. This weekend is actually used fairly frequently including more than once a month during the leader years of President Obama's administration, according to homeland security data US customs and border protection has used the what's called CS since two thousand ten and deployed twenty six times in fiscal twenty twelve and twenty seven times in two thousand thirteen the use dropped after that. But was still deployed three times in two thousand sixteen Mr. Obama's final full year in office UCS rose again and fiscal 2017, which was split between Obama and Trump. So it's something they do. So they don't have to kill people..

"They don't put in the valves when he wanted to. Here's the thing. Here's the thing. Jim Kosta is a third return list and a clown. But I'd rather live in a country when we step back a little bit. We'll step back a little bit from disliking him. Personally. I would rather live in a country in which the occasional knucklehead can give the top man a headache from time to time and country in which that can't happen. So even though I don't think the first amendment or the fifth amendment decrees that Jim Acosta needs to get his press pass back. I do believe it is. Generally, a good thing that the press can annoy the president of the United States. The reason the press is suffering. The the Donald Trump backlash. That it suffering is because they didn't do their job for eight years. That is why if they treated Barack Obama like this, and they had this. They have this delusional sense that they once asked Barack Obama hard questioned with something like what time is it or something, you know, what what chance you most about the presidency. They have this delusional idea that they covered Obama. They didn't cover Obama. They covered up for Obama for eight years that scandal-free administration that included scandal after scandal the IRS scandal the fast and furious scandal one scandal after another the scandal of the Iran deal the scandal of dumping cash into the pockets of the Iranians for nothing for no reasons because they're going to get their nuclear weapon. Anyway, all of those scandals were left uncovered they covered him up instead. And that's what they're paying for now. And that's why Donald Trump gets away with the stuff he does because otherwise even I would attack them. I don't wanna see the president of the United States throwing reporters out even a bad reporter even. Bad reporter like Jim Acosta, who's just grandstand. Or throwing his opinion at the president. I want those guys they are the problem is you cannot show up after eight years and put on your reporter pants again and say, suddenly, we're reporters. So this is the problem that I have with this idea that we stand in solidarity. There was an exchange. Chris Wallace had Trump on. And I thought Trump said a couple of things that I would question but not on this subject, but but they had an exchange Chris Wallace and Trump had this back and forth exchange in which Wallace kind of did this whole thing that the press stands in solidarity. Let's let's play this clip. This is number seven. I'm saying fake news false reporting dishonest reporting of which there is a lot. And I know see I know it because I'm a subject of a lot of people don't know. But when I explain it to them, they understand, and because you know, that better you don't have to sit here and act like a perfectly wonderful innocent angel. I know you too. Well, I knew you father to well. That's not your, gene. But let me. Tell you look I and some of the coverage of user, and I've set it on the record is biased. But I don't think that they are despised. But I, but the idea that you call us the enemy of the people calling you that I'm talking I'm not altogether. I don't understand it. We're all together. No, no. I'm not calling you. I. All and the New York Times calling. We're in solidarity. Curling fake news fake reporting is what's tearing this country apart because people know people like things that are happening. And then not hearing about it. Now. Trump is absolutely right about this. He's right twice immense fake reporting. When you have ninety four to between ninety four ninety six percent of the coverage of Trump has been negative when the economy so good when ISIS has gone on the judges a good when the regulations cut back and businesses thriving all of that that that's covered ninety six percent negative. He is absolutely right. And the problem is that the problem with Wallace's point of view is that it is. It is the opposite problem we have with Democrats that we want clowns like Jim Acosta to be able to annoy the president I want that to happen. My gripe is that it didn't happen for eight years. That's my real gripe. Not the way they treat Trump. It's the way they treated Obama and the way they treated Trump, but but the solidarity of. Press is masking a genuine genuine dysfunction in the press..

"The big questions. Like, how do you spell? Cliven. It's K L A V A N. So I have to talk about Jim look at me. I'm Jim Acosta because I know that that's what he wants. When somebody want something that badly to be talked about looked at that badly. You gotta do it. You just gotta give it up for. Now. You what what happened basically since since I've been here is that he was a federal judge gave him back. His press pass is hard pass to the White House was taken away without the art Passi would've had to apply every day for past the White House. And of course, would give them a pass to anything. So that would have been a problem so CNN sued which was absurd and the judge temporarily he issued an injunction saying he his fifth is article five right to due process was violated because there was no hearing, and there were no rules and his first amendment rights were. I'm sorry fifth amendment. And I met rights were violated by taking away. Now this I'm not a lawyer. But this seems to me completely absurd. I mean, Donald Trump doesn't it doesn't seem like the president even has to give a press conference. Let alone give a hard pass to any one particular reporter. But that's what the judge said. And now, they'll work it out. Now, I just wanted to go back. The thing for me about this has been the reaction of the press the press stood in solidarity with the cost even though sources say that many people just hate the guy. He's a show boater. He's a second east really a second rate clown. I mean, he is just ridiculous. The question that he asks at the time you remember was when he said you called the caravan an invasion, but it's not an invasion, which is like who cares? What you think accosted Trump wonderfully said, we have a difference of opinion. So obviously, this is a guy who thinks his opinion matters his his job is to put his opinion next to the president of the United States. And somehow that's pointing out that Trump as a different opinion. I'm not sure. What the hell he's doing? But the most important things he wants people to look at him after he won the temporary injunction got his art passback. He shows up wonderful piece of videos, he shows up and begs the press to interview when asked a question, I could just tell you. I. I I just want to say that I'm very grateful for what happened today and grateful my colleagues in the press who stood by roll this this this was a test. And you know, I think we'd pass the test. So so I love that. You guys wanna ask me question? Could you ask you, please please as a question and look at me look at me up. And of course, we have to add in here that, you know, in the in the court case, the Trump lawyers came in and kinda tried to steamroll the judge a little bit. They said, you know, we can ban. Anybody we want which probably got the judges backup. It probably was not the best argument. They could've made they should have gone in. And just said, hey, he was disruptive. He wasn't following the rules. And he obviously was when the young intern came and tried to take Mike away. He strangled her to death screaming at me. I'm Jim Acosta or it wasn't that bad. But it was still pretty bad. And you've made a big fuss about everything, and the whole thing was useless. The thing is the thing is about a cost of the we have to step back for just a minute. Jim Acosta is the news media. Jim Acosta is the news media. Here's what I mean. This incident happened right after Donald Trump came out after the midterm election and made some pretty bipartisan noises. I mean, they were Trumpian bipartisan noises they came along with some belligerence. He said if you start investigating me, I'm gonna investigate you will be at war. But his main the main thrust of the speech, he made was okay now, the Democrats have the house. Let them make some laws, and let us do some deals and do some trading which is what conservatives like me worried about with Trump all along that he would drift to the left if ever the left started dealing dealing with them..

"Use promo code the blaze for thirty percent off. Len. I want to kind of explore the the the idea that Americans now have to be parents, not only in their own home. But for those in the media and those in Washington what I saw yesterday and the way people were behaving with Jim Acosta and the president they both were little children, quite honestly, I'm not going to make excuses for Donald Trump. But I thought he was the better of the two by far in this case, but I have two children. I have a son and a daughter, and they're always fighting with each other. You know, and they're always I know both of them. I know that she is always needling him and always tattle tailing and always trying to get him into trouble. He is also just like, you know. My sister, drives me nuts. And he would he loses his temper sometimes we'll that's what we have a cost is my daughter needling, the president all the time just trying to get him into trouble gay just trying to be the big dog and the president lost his temper yesterday. And I have no problem because I think he held it for a very long time as we said yesterday, I think he held it for a very long time. But the two of them need to knock it off. But it's not even a cost. It's CNN that should be ashamed. The president revoked his credentials. But I'm having a hard time with this. Because I don't believe that. I don't want the president to be able to pick who's covering him, you know, and just revoked credentials. I don't like that. However, what was the president supposed to do you can't live like this? But here's where here's where it really breaks down in society because half of us are saying Jimmy Kosta. He's a hero and half of us are saying the president is a hero. We're both. We're acting like bad parents. We know both sides when we're alone with each other not in public. But when I'm alone with bunch of really hardcore Trump supporters when nobody's listening. They will say I hate the way the tweet things I hate all of that. But you know, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, same thing. The other side, I think I hope that they are saying yet CNN's out of out of control. I'm not sure because I don't have that. I well, I don't have a lot of lefty friends, but I do have a lot of democratic friends, and they're sick of it as well. We have to stop choosing sides. We have to say when Twitter are saw this last night. Oh, so you're against a a cost us or what's his name costs us. You're against a cost us. Oh, you're just excusing Trump. No said, so is it. It's like children, I'm dealing with you right now. I'll talk to your brother alone. I'm talking about. What you did? I don't care what he did. And it's so frustrating, but there's another level. And if you look at Jonathan height, and we're going to talk about this on radio, hopefully tomorrow, Jonathan height says that there are six moral foundations and the six moral foundations liberals now remember, he's a liberal progressive liberals. You'd say that about himself now. But he was when he started research for this book, he was so he says liberals have three moral foundations, and they are care, fairness and liberty. We have conservatives have six we have those three. But then we also have loyalty we have respect for authority, and I'm trying remember what the la- and sacredness or. Can't remember what he calls it? But you know, is there nothing sacred. That's where the spring down is coming down in our conversations because all they're talking about. Now is liberty. They wanna say. It's my dogs with me because we had to put his best friend down on Monday. So he's kind of said he's very curious about the campaign goes, so he's so he's just kind of hanging out with me at work. But. We can't talk to each other. Because all they want to do is talk about liberty and the president should do you should do this. Well, we wanna talk about a thority. It's the president. You asked your question. You just kept going. We have to have some order. So we're just talking over each other..

"We were just having this conversation off air. I think that what? What we saw last night is explained in this exchange between the two both sides are tired of the extremist, and you can play what aboutism all day long. You can look if you're on the on the left, you can say Donald Trump. He's he had every right to punch Jim Acosta, literally puncher, but verbally say enough. And you know, you're a bad person every right because of the way Jim was acting, and you can say Jim is Opposers and everything else. However, if you're on the left, you can say that about Donald Trump, and what's happening is we're comparing two sides, and it's your either for this one or that one where what we saw in the election last night was we don't want either of those don't want either of those. I think there's really only five different types of political conversations, and I won't. Tale all of them. But the most common one by far particularly with the media is just our team is the good team. The other team is the bad team. It's the easiest one it lends itself to that. What aboutism rather than dealing with the actual what was the violation that happened. What was the that was broken? Just who's the good guy who's the bad guy in this one furthers that narrative of there's too I don't I don't feel like I'm on either team. And I think there's a lot of Americans that are neither. And yet when you get into that. What about is MC creates that false dichotomy when I got into the voting both yesterday. I felt like I was on team. And I didn't like it. You know, I was like this has got to stop. And I didn't like it. I don't want to be on a team, but you get to a point to where which pick your poison is back to that. And that's that's not good because it's poison speaking a moment in defense of what aboutism, I think it's important. There's a voice here that defends it. I think what aboutism could be really bad. If what you're using it for is to exonerate your person. Right. Like if I'm going to say, Trump didn't do anything wrong. Because look what it cost us doing to call them. Both terrible in these situations. I think what aboutism someone appropriate. I think they both active bad, and you made a point off the air that, you know, first of all, you know, you're not supposed to necessarily expect as much out of a report of resum random reporters. You are the president. I think that's a fair point and Kosta, I think is very self aggrandizing, but they both are any breach decorum, which is the. For those of us that are concerned with the dissolution of discord civility. If it's happening, regardless of where it's happening. It's a bad thing. It doesn't help..

"They're both in it to make themselves. Feel more important both that entire transaction. There was a transaction designed to inflate both of their egos and it works because everyone talks about it. I mean cost is if you need to find one person in America to ignore. Jim Acosta is wonderful nominee for that position. And this is an example of what people don't want anymore is it troubling at all to you Andrew that. There were a very large amount of reporters who were sending their support to Jim Acosta or that extreme. No, I I got to say the president of the United States is calling the media. The enemy the people. I mean, like, I've become berkey is the result of Trump coming in in Burke for anybody. That's not familiar with kind of the godfather of conservativism ripe for the revolution. This idea that we have these very important institutions that are underpinning American of American civil discourse. And he's kicking one of those legs, very hard. So I can understand having that like reflexive defensive other reporters in there just the second hand second. Because I I am I mean, I been taken on by two presidents now I have been in those rooms I have I have been at CNN, and I bet at FOX. So I consider myself a member of the press. I am you know, they don't like to say this. But I am right with them. I have joined their freedom of press organizations with all the lefties, I will support is supported freedom of the press when Obama was doing it. And they didn't care I've doing it now as well. But you the president does not have a right to shut anyone down. He does not have a right to silence. Anyone? However, you can't. You can't tell me that. I don't have a right to respond to things that I think I mean, they're not fair to him. I'm not let's not play. What aboutism. Sure. Okay. Because we can spend an hour doing him. I'll concede to that. Like if someone's just refusing to relinquish the microphone that's a situation indefinite make you kind of understand where he's where Trump is coming from. When he says that when you see how Jim Acosta behave towards him. Is that not there's no wind here. But. Break it down to this and ask this. I do not like nor do I agree with enemy of the people. I don't like when he says that. That repeatedly on. However. Forget take yourself take yourself as that alien ship that just was going around the sun. Okay. You're an alien in you're watching it's kind of like an invading force. I don't like that term. And it's not quite right. But it is kind of you know, they're saying I'm gonna cross your border, and you're going to try to stop me, and I don't care, and so it is kind of an invasion. I mean, a home invasion is a robbery. Okay. So it's not quite right. And I don't like it. Same thing with of the people they're not the enemy people. But they they are they they act at times as a an enemy of truth. Now, Donald Trump does too. But sometimes they're they knowingly move interactions that are absolutely unfair and untrue. If you are one of the legs of the table, which you are in an important one. You do have a responsibility to say, wait a minute guys. Is wait a minute. We gotta be fair and not have an agenda other than the truth. I would agree with that. That's true. Yeah. Absolutely. I I would agree. And I would just add onto your point about about it not happening in vacuum. I think you're totally right on that. I mean, there is a reason for reporters at times to be angry at Trump. However, most of them are able to handle it and still be respectful. I think like with cost. The this happening in a vacuum. It goes both ways with us. The cost is is there's oceans and oceans between Jim Acosta and Jake, tapper Anderson Cooper and wolf Blitzer. And there's a ton of people at CNN that are really good and Jim Acosta is is known grandstand. Or he's out there all the time trying to make himself into a big deal..

Would it be say would have to be Jim Mukasa because there's a sort of guile listening to him. You know, they report the most absurd fake news all the time and by fake news. I mean, certain dishonest lines, certain actually inaccurate stories. And then also they just harp on constant negative nonsense. President Trump has the most negative press coverage in modern presidential history. Despite the fact that his approval rating in the country is fifty percent. It's it's actually quite quite high. And despite the fact that we have a booming economy that we've got peace abroad that we've got low unemployment record-low joblessness of crime down, hate crime down all of these great statistics that we can take off. But the mainstream media harp on issues that the American people don't care about. They harp on the the Russia investigation that they harp on these issues that Americans rank in the bottom of bottom percentages of what they care about, what matters to them, what it should be newsworthy, which should be politically newsworthy, but they. The other thing to point out here is you've got this video of of Ron burgundy. Jim Acosta standing there in the press cage and you've got all these Trump supporters just making fun of him. You know, because they don't like the mainstream media, the mainstream media or unpopular because they're liars. They carry water for Democrats. They're dirty rotten liars, but they're not like punching him in the face. They're not climbing over the cage to stab him or something like that. There haven't been political attacks on journalists in America. In recent history, there have been some where their personal gripes between people and certain local journalists that's happened a handful of times, but there haven't. You know, there isn't a epidemic of Trump's supporters going out and physically attacking members of the mainstream media that doesn't exist. What does exist, however, is members of the media and also lefties riling up and inciting violence against Trump supporters. Everybody from media types in the Democratic Party and on the left all the way to elected officials. Ginny up a attacks on Trump supporters on people who worked for President Trump ju. Just look at a few of these tweets talk about a dehumanizing from PBS and NPR composer Christopher o'riley quote, calling them deplorables euphemize ING them, maybe better to euthanize get it. We shouldn't euphemize them. We shouldn't give them a little nickname. We should kill all of them. You don't see that you, you don't really see that with Jim Acosta with Trump supporters to Jim Acosta. We make fun of Jim Acosta because he's eminently mockup, but you don't see that sort of, let's kill them all. Let's euthanize them. How about TV host? John Murray says this scene referring to Jim Acosta's experience at the Trump rally. This scene looks like a modern day. Ku Klux Klan rally, amazing to see that Donald Trump, the man occupying the White House is so comfortable in his atmosphere of hate philosophy, bigotry and diploma language. God bless America owes where. The hostility coming from, sir, whereas that how is this like a Ku Klux Klan rally? Because that's the easiest that's the easiest insult. It's the worst thing you can say about a person to say that their biggest that they're racists, that they're the worst thing you can say in modern America. What's the evidence was really funny is in the clip in that clip of Jim Acosta there. The first group of people that was prominent group on camera is a big group that says blacks for Trump. So just like all those old, Ku Klux Klan, rallies blacks for the clan. You don't see that a lot. That's not true. It's just it's just an insane, slander, it's insane liable to say that about Trump supporters, and it really does. Gina patriot is what you're saying is these Trump supporters are domestic terrorists and we gotta take care of them. Obviously, this is, you know, they're oblivious to their to what they're saying themselves. How about wilpon or the the author wilpon. He said, on Twitter quote, I'm truly ashamed that this is what America has become replaced the maga- hats and Trump signs, and this is straight out of any number of Thawra -tarian regimes where journalists are killed..

"All right, just got back in from our nation's capital. Had a good time walked around the gold house. You know, got to visit with the f. Young America's foundation gave a speech there on owning the lives and how wonderful it is. I think you can probably catch that online might be streaming at somewhere and I left. I left my compatriots there in DC. We were like ships passing in the night. Didn't get to see one another. I don't. I don't know if I'm more tired because I just got off the airplane and I came here or because I closed down Shelley's back room with Alli stuck last night. It was one of those two things. I'm not sure which one, but a lot of fun anyway, really enjoyed seeing f. and you know we're doing this tour in the fall with UAW Kofi on campus. So if you would like me to come spread the simple joys of go to your campus put in a request through the website yet dot org. I think there should be a link for for my tour there and you can just put in a request and we'll set it up. We're going to be picking those schools in Dade soon. So get that in pretty fast, but there's a lot to get. To this was really fun. You know, talk about a good news cycle to be hanging around DC. We have the one and only Jim Acosta if Jim Acosta did not exist, conservatives would have to create Jim Acosta the future daily wire White House correspondent Jim Acosta. He got into a little heat because he was at a Trump event. He was added Trump rally and some Trump supporters were echoing him. I wonder why I wonder why they would do that. Doesn't that seem so crazy. So then Jim Acosta went on television and started crying those mainstream media, crocodile tears here is Mr.. Kosta is covered callous. If these has become one of the president's favourite human punching bags CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, Jim, we've seen your your videos and I've, I've been to these events to I've met with countless Trump supporters even. I was shocked at the level of vitriol. That was aimed your way last night. Give us an idea of what it felt like to be in the middle of it. Well, I s I mean, honestly, it felt like we weren't in America anymore on. I don't know how to put a any more plainly than that. Americans should not be treating their fellow Americans in this way. But unfortunately, what we've seen in this has been building for some time since the campaign I've been. I've been talking about this as an issue since the campaign when the president during the campaign referred to us as the dishonest media, the disgusting news media, liar, scum, and thieves, and so on. And then he rolled that right into the Oval Office and started calling us fake news, the enemy of the people. He is whipping these crowds up into a frenzy to the point where they, they really wanna come after us, and we, you know, we have these these bike rack like barriers around the press cages. We call it to protect us essentially from people who might take things too far. It's unfortunate because I try to calmly talk to a lot of these folks at the rally last night to say, listen, hey, you know, tell me what you want to talk about here. Why are you guys so upset with us? And they. Would kind of go through a list of questions. Most of most of the questions were about, why don't you guys report positive news about the president? I said, hey, you know what we do that we were reporting on this positive job numbers in the economy last Friday and might my sense of it SE is that the that these opinions that these folks have at these rallies, they're shaped by what they see in the primetime hours of Fox News and what they hear from some conservative news outlets that just sort of give them this daily diet of what they consider to be terrible things that we do over here. I at CNN it's very unfortunate, but it's it's, it's a pitting of American against American. And honestly, it needs to stop. Honestly, it needs to stop and I'm Ron burgundy. I'm Ron burgundy..
