"I mean even reading. Jane Mares piece on Al Franken. Al Franken is of course a big public figure. You know this is a eight women that accused thing. No one's accused him of sexual assault. Everyone's accused him to sort of being uncomfortable and awkward and of course John Maher starts the peace with him like shuffling around his apartment and his socks and the the the blinds are drawn and he's like despondent and depressed and they have we gone too far well I can. I can personally vouch for that because I see Al Franken Al Franken's. Kids live close to me so I've seen him two or three times. <hes> I've met him <hes>. I I interviewed him interviewed me for Air America when the minister came out at a have a slightly bad memory of that moment which I've never told the stove I'll Italian justice because it's sort of something Jane Mayer said because in the Jane Mayer Peace. They said he's got a reputation for something a bit. Broosk yes so I was other trade from D._C.. He to New York <hes> watching very drake. The Mike Leigh Film abortion is not the most miserable film you possibly it is. What should the film betrayed. Luckily more and more like leak despondent. I got off the China went straight to America and that's sort of joke. I said to Al Franken like I was sat down with. The Sun was just finishing. He was about to interview me and I said you know I just I said. I just watched out. Just watch drake on the train coming here and you know road and it's maybe it was a bad idea to that suppressing movie before doing. Just you know doing this comedic interview and he kind of well. What would you do that was. What would you do that and then finished him any. Why would you watch the film yeah. Why would I watch. Why would I watch it depressing film before during the comedic interview. I said it's like a little funny thing to essay and Al Franken I in a way I thought about it. Initially is that the Jane Mayer is not doing great job here because I mean he sounds like a complete astle and then I realized has it. Maybe that's the point is that he's not yet pervert. He's an asshole right and those are two different. Things yeah okay so that's how. I met him years later. I was listening to giant scientist. The Senate is his book Sanish really sad because if not if none of this happened he could be he could be in the race me absolutely and and he walked past me in on in Riverside Park. We gave each other big smiles and then a couple of weeks later the whole thing happened and then I've seen him about twice since then then on on both occasions. He just looks broken. Yeah and it's really sad I mean you know. This is why people keep shouting at him. You shouldn't have quit the Senate because because every time anybody sees Al Franken as far as I can tell you is to in my situation is that he looks like a broken man I i.. I'm not sure I always I always feel bad about. It's like I guess comics do their their routines every night and people here at twice but I always feel bad that maybe feel heard this before in the show. I don't remember upset but I was. About ten feet from Al Franken when he was told Oh yeah that's a picture of me walking and there's Al Franken getting up from the committee is described as PS and he he's he's walking up at the beginning of the committee meeting and he doesn't attend that's him walking out the end of his career.

Let speculate is at the pay cut that she we worried about because it would be quite the pay cut. Well, I think that's part of it. So maybe that's not all of it. Maybe sounds to me like she's worried about something else. Well, this is an invasion of privacy when you want for these things. Are you considering? Well, I have more than three people come up last night and say I should do it. And I've gotten this more and more lately. So, you know, I think Mike francesa may be right. And what you delusional.

"For the latest story that broke just before the Golden Globes, courtesy of the Atlantic. Was a story that we anticipated for very long time about Bryan singer and a number of men coming forward and saying that when they were young girl that they had been sexually assaulted at the hands of Bryan singer. And do we wondered at the time if we would continue to hear that story gather steam and be spoken about and has shown to not have done. So this is the Colleen and Bradley show mytalk one zero seven one streaming live at mytalk one zero seven one dot com. Everything entertainment Colleen Lindstrom, Bradley trainer. So I've been listening to crazy days and nights podcasts, anti lawyer. And he did a an episode Bryan singer. And he does it with the guy who did the film. Remember that film open secret, which by the way, I have not seen. It's a documentary. Oh, I haven't seen have you seen? I've watched the house of it. And I will say that the documentary is available on YouTube gun. And he Andy lawyer has been having a conversation with him on his podcast about the open secret, which is Bryan singer. And you know, they they discuss kind of like, it's a little inside baseball. He so I'm not going to say you need to rush out and hear it because you've got two people who are sort of have their ears to the ground. And they've got a lot of sources who are talking about things, and they talk very much about, you know, why certain publications are talking about it in certain other ones are not talking about it, and what has prevented certain media outlets from dealing with it. You know, there was this whole question about why the Atlantic picked up the story after g q put it down. And that has something to do allegedly with the amount of money that somebody owns in a particular company, blah, blah, blah, you don't care, but are bunch of other things to talk about why people aren't talking about. Right. So as I was listening to that it just begs the question this guy has had allegations of sexual misconduct. Conduct and just terrible inappropriateness in the workplace since since nineteen ninety. And if you wanna go to his Wikipedia page, you can see the allegations laid out in a timeline. And you know, there are allegations going back to the nineties than the two thousand two thousand fourteen two thousand seventeen now the two thousand nine hundred ninety. Allegations in it begs the question, why why are we not talking about here is a guy who has been accused of? Okay. I just think of like Al Franken Al Franken sitting US Senator accused of inappropriate behavior, not even sexual assault. Right. Don't think. Inappropriate lewd, bad behavior. Was forced out of his job as a sitting US Senator who had been elected by the majority of his constituents. He was done for all intents and purposes. And that was within a span of a couple months. Yeah. From the allegations coming to light. And here you have one of the most powerful people in Hollywood who's been able to continue and has defenders in high places speaking out publicly on his behalf as early as late as this week. Yeah. Who has not been held to account? And while certainly people have been talking about it. Sure, it has not had a profound effect on his on his career ability to do his job. Yeah. He's still he's on the payroll for like what ten million dollars for a project and upcoming project and the head of that project has said, yeah, I know he's still worst going forward with that full steam, add he'll still be making that money and to your point, Bradley. You're right. It's the that people are talking about it. But they aren't the people that matter in terms of making an impact on his career because he can still make money in Hollywood for the people who are earning the money. It's the people underneath who are who have who have no decision making power. All that said. It's like we do though right? Like, we do have decision making power because we're the consumers, but it's. But that would require all of us to get on the same which is just sort of like a ham handed or back word sounding way of doing things. Normally, you know, I mean just just name the people whose careers have evaporated in an instant, right or wrong justified. Oregon's mostly justified as far as I'm concerned. And I'm sure you would agree when you say names like Roseanne when you say names like Bill Cosby when you say names like Harvey Weinstein like these all. We understand. Yeah. And and you can disagree with them. But you understand sort of how this all went down in a pragmatic way. You're like, well, no company wants to tie themselves and constantly have this storyline. Brought up. So you may call them shallow superficial for doing it. But at least you can understand their rationale for not wanting to constantly have disgusting. Controversial stories brought up in defense of a person that they're working with. Right. So then why Bryan singer? That's the thing that I don't understand unless it's is it because he's gay which I know sounds weird to say. But when you think about it like he's used and other people have used the sort of thing like like, it's because this is not about him being attracted to men. This is him being attracted to children. Yeah. Honestly, age boys. Yes. I mean, some of his victims we well. I mean, the very first victim that's outlined in the in the article in the Atlanta. I believe was fourteen at the time that he was sexually assaulted by Bryan singer, fourteen years old that's a child, and you really get a feel from his story of the elaborate grooming methods that Bryan singer used and he could leverage it because he was able to make people he had he had star power in Hollywood. He could say I wanna put you in a movie, and that was attractive to a young fourteen year old, of course. And then they didn't know what world they were getting into. And so he could manipulate things in such ways that they wouldn't know that it wasn't normal to be put in this area on sat alone, and then he would come into the room, and he would have his way with them and the shame that that brought on. I mean, you he you're right. It's about children that he was victimizing. Yeah. And I. I don't know. I think it all has everything to do with the fact that he's still a commodity. He is still make money even more disturbing. When you think of the fact and Holly jump in like the fact that it is children versus say. I mean, I just think again about like Harvey Weinstein, he did horrible things, and he essentially raped women, which is, you know. I'm not trying to under. I'm not trying to do apples to apples or like competitor hearing this year. But in a way, I would say like in my list of the dangers of a person to society a person who preys on children is at the top. So therefore, you would want to be focusing your energy on removing that threat from the job. You know, what I'm saying you would want to remove that person from a place where you could continue to do that kind of damage. Yes. At the very least, I think with Bryan singer. And it's just speculation totally on my part. Is that the difference between Bryan singer and people like maybe Bill Cosby Harvey Weinstein is that there is a network of people involved in the Bryan singer allegations that are power players in Hollywood, and nobody is willing to put themselves out there too. If if they don't want to be Associated Cement want to be associated with it. Maybe they went along with this stuff. Maybe they were complicit in it may be they actually participated in some of these things. Too. So I think there's a power network involved. Perhaps in Bryan singer in a way that Bill Cosby he had the same power network. But that power network was active thirty years. Right. So there was like a breakdown. So there is a breakdown a natural aging of that network of protection of Bill Cosby, and it's very much active because you know, if you read you were talking about listening to crazy days and nights dot net. Bradley, the podcast will on the blog a lot of there's a lot of implication that you know, there's a lot of people in Hollywood big Hollywood names. That would also the Domino's would then fall and people are conducting themselves perhaps well like all things and like every good net flicks drama, it ends up having to do a lot more with people's own investment and investment in protecting their own selves..

"How you buy. Newstalk eight three. Oh, WC CEO. So he says he's not going to resign. Talking with his staff. To resign. I think the more I look at this the more. I mean two days ago, I thought okay. Maybe there's a chance that it wasn't him that he's telling the truth and that that photo the black face and the person next to him in in the white outfit, the KKK outfit. Maybe that was not him. Maybe it's a case of mistaken identity. But then when he goes and publicly says, oh, yeah. I dressed up in black face and Mike. Michael jackson. Yeah. Then I thought all right. That's it. You're done for me. Paul. It doesn't matter if he was in the photo or he wasn't. Yes. He's admitted to the black face as Michael Jackson. At this point in my opinion. He cannot be an effective leader. He is too much of a distraction. There are people around the state who don't wanna work with him. You heard in the news. He's now been banned from the William, and Mary, I guess graduation some kind of ceremony there people are spurning him. If you are truly a man of the people of Virginia, if you truly want the best for the people of Virginia, you will take your ego, and you will remove yourself from the office of the governor. This is an ignominious end to a very long. Career in public service. So I I think it's it's easy for us to say that George he should just do the right thing. And do what's right for the state? But again, he's worked his whole life to to become governor to get there. And so I understand a hesitancy to just hold up. The white flag and say, I surrender. Well, that's his ego. Because at this point there are people of color, and there are white people probably in the state that you have lost the trust of. And when you have lost the trust of the people you become an ineffective leader. If you have other lawmakers that are unwilling to work with you. If you have colleges around the state that don't want you feel like you're a pariah, you're done like you. If you really want what's best for your people, and the people that you are sworn to serve you will remove yourself because no longer about you. This has become a lesson. And then it's a conversation about black face. It's a conversation about the hoods. It's conversation about what's appropriate in your yearbook or not. But that it isn't. Oh that was him. So he should resign. This is now become a huge distraction, and you can no longer govern properly. So make way for somebody else that doesn't have that kind of baggage. But again, the whole going back. This was what nineteen Eighty-four? His yearbook dated back in nineteen Eighty-four. Yes. That's not that long ago. Paul. I know, but what amazes me is how did this not come out sooner. I guess we weren't in the habit of journalists weren't in the habit of looking at old yearbooks. But in the area of of Cavanaugh, but then just now. It's coming out. Everybody's high school yearbook is fair game. Right. I guess so. I guess so clearly across party lines. I mean, I guess it is how will we find anybody? And I'm not for a minute minimizing what he did with whole blackface. It's reprehensible, but how do we find anybody with an unblemished record? No skeletons in the closet. I mean are there any of that boys? Outfitting congress people sitting senators, don't you think that every journalist has gone over Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell? I know he's seen posing in front of a confederate flag. I think that's a little bit different. Don't you think? We've there journalists that have gone through all of our sitting congress and looked at their yearbooks. They have a lot of them. Don't have this. That's like when when everybody was crazy about the metoo. Oh, every man who's ever slapped a woman on the, but they're gonna lose their jobs is everybody losing their jobs. No, they're not. But when you are a governor of a state, and you have this kind of baggage now, you are no longer effective when you have a different employees when you and your up a talk show host or an engineer or a plumber, and maybe you have done this thirty years ago or forty years ago. Maybe oh, it's it's not as harsh. But when you are in a job that needs to have the respect and the trust of the electorate and of the citizens of your state, you have a problem when? Things like this come into question. And it becomes not about you anymore. At some point, remove yourself, remove your ego. You are a public servant serve the public. Clearly, William and Mary doesn't want you coming. There are others. You know, there are there are legislators that Satan, we don't really want to work with you anymore. They're going to be organizations in his state that don't wanna work with him anymore. Do the right thing, but the whole innocent until proven guilty. You're. Oh, you're talking about due process that has it's the legal system. It's legal to be racist in this country. And I'm not even saying this guy's a racist. I'm saying now, it looks bad and you are in effect. So perception becomes reality. That's right. You are ineffective now because of all of this. So do the right thing. That's that's my opinion. Others many people have different opinions. But there are other people. There was a legislator in Florida was shown you you talked about this before who dressed up as a Hurricane Katrina victim. And he did something else. Yes. He also had black face Aves black face, and he was a Hurricane Katrina victim. He stepped down he resigned. Senator. Al Franken resigned run, you have a cloud, and you can't be effective. Goodbye. Steve's in Saint Paul jump on in here. Steve Steve, either say, I agree. This is a bad stuff. And you know, the skeletons in closets and people should be wear on. But I'm just concerned that this seems to disproportionately affect Democrats as opposed to Republicans. But you just mentioned Al Franken Al Franken was forced to quit. But look at the Cavanaugh he was accused of all sorts of horrible things credible. Evidence by credible. Witnesses. He's almost from court. Yes. He is the president of the United States is on tape bragging that because he's a celebrity you can grab women's private parts. So we look at shirt, Charlie rose, accused of all horrible things. But boy, I find it difficult to believe that a lot of these less, socially aware and less sensitive Republicans from Limbaugh and all the other FOX people. I'm surprised I usually suspicious that none of them are are leaving their choosing not to step down. You know, exactly why doesn't this guy. You know? Like like, like, Paul said, boy, everybody's got when you were, you know, people. I've heard somebody say when I was a sophomore. I didn't sophomoric things. That's why they save sophomore. But you know. Doing mea culpa, you know. Yeah. I did this year was wrong. I've grown since. I was twenty years old eighteen years old, whatever. And I I'm not I'm supporting this guy. But I'm just saying this governor could say when cut cavenaugh and Trump up steps down, then I guess I'll step down to and I see what you're saying. And you're right. He would have an argument absolutely think he would. But you see what I think with this guy. And and I think it was true with Al Franken with Senator gillibrand and Senator Schumer stuff who forced him out. It seems to be the Democrats, you know, who are basically afraid of their image overall that they are the ones who are pushing for this. This governor is that removal, the Republicans largely stay silent. Interesting. Interesting observations, Steve. Yeah. And making us thank thank you for the call Steve. Yeah. Appreciate it. You know? But ultimately, it's up to the person. And yes, there's an argument to be made that says, well, you know, he did bad things and he stayed in office. But you have to look at your own self in the mirror at the end of the day. Who do you want to be what guy do you want to be? What what lawmaker do you want to be what Representative of the people? What public servant? Do. You wanna be? When you look in the mirror. You're not gonna. I mean, hopefully, you don't want to be that person say, well, he's a bad actor, so I can be one to hopefully, you don't wanna be that guy. But some people do well, these are all teachable moments, and again, this this comes from parents talking to their kids to right? Thompson his car jump in here. Tom are you guys doing? Hello. Tom. Hey. The thought occurred to me laws listen to the commentary about Franken. And then he gets brought up in a thought know. No. Franken didn't step down until multiple entities came forward. That said an accused him of physically. Violating or you know. Belting them and he. Yeah. He had an entire career based on off color humor. And I'm sure if I had a photographic memory. I could probably remember a skit that he was either inter or wrote that was either marginally offensive to one Greek or another. No one. But the fact of that and say you should be marched out of the Senate because of something you did in the previous life now. Yep. This governor was in this picture, which has not been established for sure if there was in a private institutions yearbook, you know, really. Guys got a career in in serving the people that general how many years thirty five years you said. That seems I mean. This seems fairly trivial throwing him out of office for. And that's your opinion. No one's throwing him out. In fact, there are no grounds for impeachment because I don't think that would be legal in his state. He's being encouraged to resign encouraged. Yeah. Well, I mean, I think the way that your opinion is coming across the show is is that it should be absolute. There's no question about it that this should be gone. And I think that's that's well, that's just my opinion. Yeah. Absolutely. There's no grounds for that. Just me. I'm a little I'm a little queasy about the whole thing. Again, I I'd like to see some due process. But the fact that this guy admitted to dressing up in black face on previous occasions. I mean that to me was what tipped me over and said, yeah, maybe he should resign. I don't know how you come back from that. And he's a democrat. All right. I mean, it doesn't matter democrat Republican. Thanks for the call, Tom. We appreciate it. Thanks, john. Jason his car. Jay jump in here. Hi, Jay, Jay. I think it's important to remember. In the discussion that. Eighty four. It wasn't. Frowned upon at that time. Jay, I was alive in nine hundred eighty four. It was it was frowned upon at that time. Yeah. I don't think to a degree. And I. I don't know is intense part of it. And they condoning it. But I think thirty four years ago thirty five years ago it was perceived differently. That's Jane is car. I gotta district his point that. The sensitivity wasn't there in eighty four. Boy, that's that's tough. Black face in the vaudeville time, it has been a racist Theus, and we know that and we knew that then and it's wrong. So look, but in eighty four we didn't have Twitter, we didn't have social media. We didn't have sort of this rush to judgment, right? That we have now. Okay. It was still it was it was still wrong. But we didn't have the drumbeat that we have today where things seem to be happening in fast forward, and in hyper speed, are you saying we were more racist back then? I think we probably were. Yes. But we didn't have the media constructs to be able to isolate and highlight those cases of racism in real time. Okay. Okay. Right. Mike in Minneapolis jump in here. Mike. Hi, the one thing. I find a bit shocking is is that disguise Dr. And isn't isn't one of the things that people in the medical profession halves? First do no harm. And that means harm of any sort. You know, I mean, certainly the K K K hat on your page. I mean, Demi lynching, that's it. Yeah. Yeah. You know, if if in and yeah, he's not Cletus the high school dropout hillbilly. You know, he should've known better. Latest the high school dropout has we might have to show. Why did you talk about ed- education? Yes. Yeah. You know, if he wants to say, well, I was young and dumb, and well, you know, that I don't think that's that's pretty disingenuous if he's gonna take that route, Mike, I'm glad you got it. Thank you. Thank you for the record..
