Dinesh Reveals the Effects of Musk Derangement Syndrome

"Let's turn to mister Elon Musk because he is causing the left to have a freak out. And it's a little bit interesting to think about why. Is it because, well, one thought it occurred to me yesterday and that is that Elon Musk has been really focused. He's freeing speech on the one side, but he goes, I'm really going to crack down on Twitter on pedophiles on pedophiles. And this too has freaked out the left. It's kind of interesting to see. I mean, is it because there's a substantial fraction of pedophiles in the cultural left as Elon Musk kind of nuking a wing of the left that doesn't, you know, they can't openly say, well, we're pedophiles. So what they do is they pretend I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be leaving Twitter on principle. It could be a secret reason for the leftist freak out. Here's Alyssa Milano, who, by the way, used to be a huge Elon Musk fan. I have found it fascinating. You're a couple of Milano tweets. I'm in awe of Elon Musk. And then she goes on to thanks Elon Musk and Tesla. Elon Musk you're amazing. She says that she could have dinner with four people. She picked Jesus Roberto Clemente John Lennon and Elon Musk. And then more recently, here's Alyssa Milano. I gave back my Tesla. I bought the Volkswagen. I love it. Now, what's so weird about this is first of all, she's turned on Musk. Why? Because evidently he's for free speech. That alone is enough to set her off. Number two, she buys, let's call it the Nazi car. Why? Because Vogue, if you want to talk about history, Volkswagen was started under the Nazi regime, it's in fact the word volk is a very fascist term volk means, of course, people and the Nazis who were socialists talked about the people's car, Volkswagen, the wagon of the people. So here's a list of Milana while she doesn't really know about her, but nevertheless, part of she has MDS Musk the arrangements syndrome.

Alyssa Milano Trades in Her "White Supremacist" TESLA for a Nazi VW

"Alyssa Milano goes on Twitter. Oh, I love this. And she's so happy to tell everybody. I gave back my Tesla. I bought a Volkswagen I love it. I'm not sure advertisers can buy space on Twitter. Publicly traded company products being pushed in alignment with hate and white supremacy doesn't seem be a winning business model, Elon is she the dumbest leftist cult member of all time. This is the girl who wore a crocheted face mask during the pandemic, not realizing that there are holes in there that are as big as the Panama Canal to a germ like COVID. But what she's not understanding or didn't bother to care about is what many of us have known. Volkswagen was literally founded by the Nazis and Adolf Hitler. It originated during the Third Reich in an attempt to create an affordable car for German people. So Volkswagen used both Jewish and non Jewish forced labor. And they also operated for a concentration camps and 8 forced labor camps on its property. But listen, Alyssa Milano loves her Volkswagen, but will not be caught dead in a Tesla.

"Anyway, I'm moving on. Another day, another Nick Cannon baby. Yes. I know we've all lost count. And I wouldn't be surprised if Nick Cannon has lost count as well. Only this past September he and Brittany bell welcomed his tenth child the other day, it was revealed that Abby de la rosa just popped out his 11th, but Alyssa Scott is still pregnant with baby number 12 he'll be likely arriving next year, Nick may be birth announcement, the girl will be called beautiful Zeppelin cannon. Why are we taking this guy serious at any level? Beautiful, Zeppelin cannon. That's nothing short of being an asshole naming your child beautiful Zeppelin? You know what? He went on Instagram, beautiful day from beautiful Zeppelin cannon to arrive. Mommy, I love you. You make it all looks. How many times did you tell the mothers I love you? This is insane. Mommy, I love you. You make it all look so easy and effortless, but I'm forever indebted to your tireless work of constant dedication, diligent effort, selfless love that you give to our children and myself not to mention, your vaginas always open 24/7 no, but he didn't say that, but he is clearly thinking that. Beautiful is privileged to have such a loving and spiritually inclined mother your resilience and strength doesn't go unnoticed. This is like, this is like these are bad hallmark card note. This is such band writing.

"alyssa" Discussed on Mindful Mama - Parenting with Mindfulness

"What people had done before. So what did you not get as a kid that you discovered that kids need? Yeah, so I have incredible parents as and they're so far from perfect, right? Like all of us as humans. And I'm super grateful for them as like a caveat. And yes, I didn't grow up in what we would call a secure attachment relationship. I grew up in a household where there were terms like dramatic or emotional, were applied when I was having a hard emotion. And I was allowed to have it, but I was expected to have it in my room and then I could come on out and we could talk about what we did and do next. To sensitive, too sensitive. That was me. Exactly. Exactly. And so I was allowed to have them. It just wasn't something they were going to be privy to or around. They were ready to talk about the problem solving the conflict resolution part. When I was ready for that, and I could take my time having a hard emotion. I just was going to do it in my bedroom. Or I was going to be removed to the car if we were at like a public thing or et cetera. And there was no discussion around coping for processing experiences. Because they weren't a part of the emotional expression, they were there for the problem solving the conflict resolution. I developed so when part of our method involves the phases of emotion processing and there are 5 of them in the very last one is problem solving or conflict resolution. And the first four are about connecting with the child and helping them feel safe and seen, which then allows their nervous system to calm so that they can access problem solving conflict res empathy, et cetera. And in those first four phases, my parents number one was allow. They would allow me to have it. So they did that one. Number two is the recognition of the perceived emotion. So this would be like acknowledging. The emotion that they're having or that we think that they're having. Oh, you were working so hard on that and it crashed. It's so frustrating. Just validating and connecting over that experience and what they're experiencing. So I didn't necessarily have that part. And then security in the feelings recognizing that it's okay and safe to feel this because it won't last forever. That all feelings are temporary. And this is where we see anxiety when we don't have security in our feelings. We are often trying to run or to do list our way out of it or make it go away as fast as possible and then it really is just like quicksand where you just get to deeper and deeper. Digs a hole there. And then the fourth phase is coping and there are two different types of coping we have coping mechanisms and coping strategies and coping mechanisms are what we will automatically develop and turn to to make it stop as fast as possible. It's what our bodies designed to do to make it stop to have temporary relief, often turning to something that's going to elicit dopamine that reward center of our brain. So now it might be chocolate. Yeah, chocolate is a great one. Chocolate food in general, the chocolate has decent amount of dopamine. So if you're looking for a dopamine hit, it's a great turn. Screens distraction ignoring it, like just trying to distract yourself and move on. My biggest dopamine hitter is shopping. I can feel a car, like it's nobody's business. I don't even have to check out. I could just fill that car like there's no tomorrow. For some folks that could be substance abuse or use. And anyway, so as a kid, it's often distractions our biggest one that we turn to or screens, where we will try and just distract them out of it. Or use a user screen to get that dopamine. And then coping strategies are going to produce serotonin or oxytocin. So oxytocin being that love feel good hormones, serotonin calming the nervous system. And these you'll often feel that emotion or you'll have the experience, the nervous system experience for a little bit longer, dopamine has a faster reaction. So you can numb it pretty quickly with dopamine. Or the coping mechanism versus the coping strategy might take a minute longer. You might be in that feeling and then you start to feel some relief. So this could be taking deep breaths. It can be moving your body with young kids. It can be like doing big jumps or jumping into a pillow pile or I'll do like a race with kids sometimes like, oh, I'm not ready to figure this out yet. Let's see how many frog jumps it takes us to get to the bathroom door and back. I bet we can do it in ten. What do you think? And then we're gonna move our bodies and move that cortisol adrenaline and then once we're calm and then we move on to that problem solving conflict resolution, et cetera. And the other form of moving your body would be vestibular input, which is that like swinging, going upside down, moving the plane of your head. So big body moving the point of your head. Or like taking deep breaths, having some sensory deprivation or down regulation. Removing touch on quiet. Oh, nice. I was touching my toes. It's like never thought of it as like a vestibular thing. But like I always think of it kind of like in the I guess the yoga terms of like a folding forward is like a calming method. To me, it feels like a release stuff falling out of my head. Yeah, no, I love that. That's a great one. That's a great one. Yeah, and so as a kid, I wasn't giving coping strategies. I wasn't told here are things you can do to calm your nervous system so that we can talk about problem solving. It was just like, yeah, go and when you're ready, here's where I'll be. I don't think any of us were like generationally like none of us were. And we still have some major people on TV who are saying, kid, go by yourself and just calm down without any strategies. Right. It's like, it's frustrating to see. So frustrating. And yeah, I guess it is triggering for me because I'm like, no, I know what that looks like down the road and you have to build all these tools as an adult and you end up just numbing through emotions in your teens, Alyssa. And so as I was doing that work on myself and realizing those things, I was like, oh, this is what that is. This is how this plays out down the road. These are different ways it shows up and she's talking to a friend

11th Time's the Charm for Nick Cannon

"Nick Cannon. Welcoming is 11th child into the world with one of his women, Alyssa Scott, Alyssa was also the mom who gave birth to the baby that died 5 months later a brain cancer, very sad, so I'm glad to see them up and at it again. And yes, Nick has a 12th baby on the way as well. I remember when he had his 7th kid and I said, this guy is in a hardly done. He's on a mission for some reason. He's going to have a lot more. I mean, Nick Cannon wants to put 15 babies in this world minimum. And he's got a little workout. And right now he's got a lot of kids who are going to grow up really without a father's influence every single day. Great job, Nick. He basically tells women this is going to be a broken family. Even before they get pregnant, and these women accepted. I guess he makes that much money that he can promise they'll never have to worry about build. I don't know what kind of deal the iron's out with them, but they're all saying yes.

Ted Cruz Reminds Alyssa Farah About Dem's History of Election Denial

"A list of fair Griffin, who grilled Ted Cruz, on the January 6th protest, and whether he viewed President Biden as legitimately elected, and Ted Cruz pushes back. He reminds her when it, when you talk about election integrity, when you talk about stolen elections, he reminds her of Hillary Clinton doing the same, in cut number three. There's a lot of folks in the media. Hold on. I'm answering exactly that question. There are a lot of folks in the media that try to anytime a Republican is in front of a TV camera. Try to say, the election was fair and square and legitimate. You know who y'all don't do that to? You don't do it to Hillary Clinton, who stood up and said, Trump's form of capital. Who said that the election was stolen. They sat here. Yes. And said it was legitimate. And you guys were fine with it. Okay, so it's illegitimate. No, you know, here's the thing. We may not like when Republicans win, but we don't go and we don't storm. We don't try to change, but. Did I miss an entire year of antifa riots where cities across this country? I guess your position is the left doesn't engage in violence. Really? No, they wanted to know. I'm Mike Pence. You just accused us of doing something we didn't. You said Hillary Clinton didn't say whatever she didn't say. I'm saying to you, listen. And she said we sit here and you find with her say that it was illegitimate. She called Donald Trump the next morning and she conceded the election, Ted. Okay. As it's satiated. He pulled out his notes here.

Alyssa Farah Griffin: U.S. Families Lost $6,000 in Wages Due Last Year

"I don't know who Alyssa Farrah Griffin is. I guess she's the latest token Republican on the panel of the view, but she said, and I quote, I want to say this respectfully, I worry there might be a blind spot at this table over the fact that the average American family lost $6000 in annual wages last year due to inflation. You know what the lie of joy behar is? What happened in the four years of the Trump presidency? Wages increased. Americans became more prosperous. Jobs were better and plentiful and the economy was robust. This talking head on the view said, blame Biden or don't blame Biden, but there is a reason that Tim Ryan is running in Ohio away from Biden away from Pelosi. Well, Biden and Pelosi are the ones in charge. She's the Speaker of the House. He's the president of the United States. And joy behar can be depressed. Over the fact that the economy is in the tank, the buck stops with the White House. And the Democrat party leadership.

Get Over It; Donald Trump Is Not a Racist

"I want to jump on Donald Trump real quick. People are still nutty when it comes to president Donald Trump. They're still nutty. I don't understand why they can't just get over it. You didn't like his policy. Just say you did like his policy, or you didn't like him as a person, move on. But to lie and say he's a racist and all this stuff, it's just absolutely stupid to me. Now, with that being said, you know the view is a bunch of women having hot flashes because none of them make any sense and they're all ignorant, folks. And I think it's intentional. It's no way they could be grown in that dumb. However, I want you to listen to what Alyssa Ferrara, I think that's how you say her name. What she had to say on the view about Donald Trump condoning or not condoning white supremacists, roe cliff four. I remember saying to Donald Trump once the easiest thing to do is to condemn white supremacy. Any day of the week, Monday through Friday or Monday through Sunday. And I don't get why that's not more common. The only reason 'cause she's hot. That's it. Can I be honest with y'all? The only reason she got a place on her 'cause she's hot. The only reason anybody listening to her 'cause she's fine. Can we just, nothing, she said, make any sense. She's a complete liar in a fraud. Because if she say that she'd been telling Donald Trump that he should not condone white supremacy, and she's there with him every day. And I got the clips, baby. The forgotten man hooked me up. I got the clips of a Montage two minutes of Donald Trump saying that he do not condone. He condemn white supremacy.

You've given us a lot, Alyssa, thanks so much for joining me today. Yeah, thanks for having me. Well, parents, I hope you enjoyed my conversation today with Alyssa blas Campbell. I don't know about you, but every time I do a podcast, I walk away going, wow, I never thought of that. So I hope you feel like that today. Let's go over my points to ponder one. Use the word why more. Whenever your child acts up, your tendency is to simply react. And you either get mad, or you reprimand your child or something else. But if you train yourself to stop and ask, why is your child acting the way he is? You'll find that you're more patient, empathetic and have a calmer way of reacting and you're more likely to get a peek into what's going on in your child's head. Why are they doing what they're doing? Two, pause before you react. When your child acts up, take a big, deep breath, and force yourself to wait 5 or ten seconds before you respond. This will help you stay calm. And it'll give you a few more minutes to ask yourself why is he having the temper tantrum? Why is he crying? Why is he so upset at his sister that he's going to whap her on the head with a toy? So take some time and pause before you react. Three. Ask him questions. After a child has a meltdown or a strong response to something, let him calm down. And by the way, don't force him to calm down because you can't, unless you threaten him, and that's never a good idea. Then ask him questions like, well, just then were you feeling mad or were you frustrated or were you sad, very simple terms? This will help both you and your child gain greater insight into what he feels when he's upset. And then eventually it will help him learn to control himself better. I want to thank my guest Alyssa blast Campbell for joining me on the show today.

"When I got Kylie, I was like, okay, no, it wasn't like any move or every single time I spoke or slept all I thought about was revenge on X. And that's fine. You know, that's TV. I hope it's entertaining, you know? It's whatever is gonna make the best TV. Obviously, I mean, you guys know this. You go on these interviews for hours. And obviously, what's gonna make good TV is gonna be shown. And it is what it is. If I can just say this, it's never that everything's able to be shown because there's only so much time, right? And one of these an hour episodes or something like that. So there's only so much time. You have 20 something 30 people's stories that you're following. You just can't put it all together. Right. I will say that out of the 13 years I've been doing reality TV or TV in general, I have yet to really see where it felt like the story, particularly with the challenge, didn't ultimately, like what they were showing didn't ultimately match up though with the theme or the energy of what was happening. Now, maybe they didn't show every conversation that led to that place or whatever. Sure. But like, ultimately, whatever the general story is. Like if someone kind of has it out for a person or wants to really win a particular challenge or is trying to politic with a bunch of different people, whatever it is that they're not that wrong. Yeah. I can agree with that. The challenge is definitely being really good to me. I mean, I went, I went in wanting the revenge, but it wasn't my, I went in to win as well. So I just feel like sometimes it's looking like we see that, though, you weren't dumb. Like you said, you didn't risk your game. You know, like at the end, it's interesting because we see Shan sort of say, I don't know what Alyssa was thinking. And my first thought is, girl, she was thinking to send you all home is what she was making and it worked. That was clearly the goal and it worked. So I'm playing. Yeah, she had a plan that benefited her and it's currently working. So yeah, I don't think as a viewer. Because what would be different is if you did something that was just blatantly detrimental, meaning like say you and X were on the same team and you volunteered to go in because you wanted to get out and you're like, that would be dumb, right? You weren't down and be like, I hope you wouldn't want to interview me if I did something like that. We would just talk about it. You know, I'm kidding. But you didn't do that. You were, you were smart. You took a big swing, but you hit. And it was clear that it was, yes, you wanted revenge, but watching it thus far, and we don't know what happened. You know, but we don't know what happens, but definitely looks like you came to the game to play, and you were fully doing that and doing it well. Okay. Well, as long as it's looking like I'm playing the game because man, I am trying I tried my fucking hardest, so. Girl, this trivia challenge, okay? I love travel. You are paired with kylan and we know Kylie has a brain. That man is smart. Oh my God. Thank you. Your parent with him. And we see him answering the majority of the questions. How would that work?

"I know my heart breaks for this caller and whoo, it's a hard one. It's a hard one. Yeah, so I listen to just a little bit of these just to get the flavor of what the question is. And I was like, I did not realize how far because I thought I'm like, oh, if it's just like a political thing, there's maybe some stuff, but he just sounds kind of like an asshole. Period. Started to me. It sounded to me like the pandemic and Trump revealed a lot about who her dad was. And gave him a permission structure to act away that he's probably been wanting to act for a while, and if I were to give her any advice, I would say she should just try to get her mom out of the house to do special things with her. Like one on one. Do you know what I mean? Like maybe like Christmas like the holidays, it's hard and with COVID, it's like, you know, where else is this poor young person supposed to go? And I just feel like her dad sounds awful, but he probably always was awful, but if I were her, I don't know that I would intervene, per se. I think I would just try to do more special things, one on one with my mom. I definitely think that that's a good call. I think there are a couple of things here. This is this question does speak to my heart. I think here's a couple of things I suck. And I think it's more generational that at that age, late 60s, 70, it's hard for a lot of people do not want to start over. And it is hard, and I don't know your parents, finances, can your mother literally like practically move out and have an apartment on her own. You know what I mean? No one wants to do that, especially as they get up in years because you get used to and you need companionship. However, when that companion is not particularly pleasant, you know, it's like, well, how does this help? And so that's why I do think what you're saying, Alyssa, getting out of there as much as possible. I'm going to do stuff. My other question to you too, are you the only kid? Right, that was my question too. Yeah, 'cause it's like, if they're some other siblings, you know, I think it is worth having a conversation where you sit down with your mother, maybe, or your father. Either way, I think you should be a separate kind of like each person separately, but where you're like, I don't like it really hurts me. You know, it makes me sad. It hurts my feelings. When you talk to mom in this way, mom, it really hurt it really makes me sad when I see, you know, when I see you being insulted. Yeah. When I see you accept this behavior. Yes. 'cause I think that a parent can't deny that kind of response and it can be, depending on a parent, it can be a wake-up call, because you know, no matter what the age you always want to be, you know, someone your child can respect at the very least or let alone some parents feel like, look up to me or like, let me control your life until you're 70 yourself. But other parents were just like, I want you to see me in a certain way. It may change something. Couples therapy, you know, it only works if both people want to do it. So you've suggested it, leave it alone. There's no way to get them in, even if you like, literally paid for a session, got them a therapist and dropped them off. We're gonna go get McDonald's after this. It's like, no. You can't make anybody, so like you said when you said, but I think it is, I think it's definitely like, can you get mom out? Also, not just that. What's mom's social life like? What else is she doing? Does she have people in her life when you're not there? Who can make her smile, remind her she's the jam, like just, you know, make her a bridge crew. Yes, which is a bridge. Yes, she needs some people. And so, you know, is that something she has, depending on where she lives and how close people are. Is there no sounds cheesy? Is there a senior center? Because she go over to your hang out for hours. Hello, a Zumba, a pottery moment. And aren't like senior centers, hotbeds of sexual activity. Or here's a question that Ashley Madison is that only for men, how much does this can you get your mom a subscription to it? Get your mom on bumble. I don't know. I don't know, if she's stuck with this dude, then I feel like that's an outlet. Good advice because there are a couple things that could happen if her mom sort of seeks fulfillment outside of the house. One, she can potentially compartmentalize his behavior as one. Two, is he like weirdly doing this to show off in front of his daughter? Like, you know how sometimes people act weird when new people are introduced into an equation. Like is he always like this? Does her mom say it's worse when she's home or better? You feel like when I was in high school and I would make jokes from the back of the classroom. Right. To try to show off. Right, like, yeah. Is it like, it's hard to sort what the kernel, like what the genesis of his problem is. But her mom may be like, you know, if she goes out more with some friends, if she gets a mahjong team, if she's doing dance classes at the senior center, she might be like, you know what? My life can be better. And I should make a change. Or she might be like, you know what? I just need a break from this motherfucker. Right? Right, right, right. Exactly. That's true. If they're in their 70s, I mean, it may be the kind of thing where they've made it this long. This is just like a real bad spot where after two years, they're on each other's fucking nerves more than anyone could imagine. And I mean, like during pandemic, we had a countdown calendar where we knocked off every day like we were in prison. And we would like high 5 each other. We're like, we made it a hundred days, and we still love each other. We made it 500 days, and we still love each other. So it's like, but not everybody had that experience. Yep, yep. Definitely. And 500 days of COVID. That feeling of also too, you know, it's so interesting when we talk about people as they age, sometimes it really does seem like people hit 65 and stop giving fucks. Because it's like you didn't used to talk like that before. Right. And so, you know, so when we say it's like, okay, yes, Trump happened, but there is something also that happens as you get older, some people, for a lot of people, at least in my experience where it's like, what happened? You didn't used to be. So conservative or coronary or impatient with people or maybe you lose. This catheter? Yeah, get a new catheter. Okay, that could be it. Tell your dad, he's got to change out his calf. And isn't that weird? It's just like weird because we talk about this with our parents. And it's like, y'all were fun before..

"Do you have to have walls up between like can you ever trust someone or is it always like a kind of scheming? For the most part for the most part I was very suspect of most people and very like Kurt professional I guess is how I would call it you know it's like if someone called me for something I was kind of like cut to the chase, you know butter me up. You're not taking me for lunch like give me a break. I don't have time for lunch. And so it was like if I could do it, I could do it. You know, if there was something that someone asked me and it was reasonable, I would do it. But I didn't need buttering up or you didn't want to write a profile on me or anything like that. And I didn't do press for all those years. You would not find there were no articles about me until the day I left. Yeah. Other than when I got engaged to David. One article that was about you guys, he has like movers and shakers. There's like some article about you guys like buying property. That's all I could find, which I had to look because I was like, because there's one point we were doing hysteria where you said something about my time with Obama and I was like, what? Because you know, I was like, convinced you were 25. And so then I had to Google, but you know I'm about to be 46. But you still done so much and you look so 46. Is this very wholesome? Yeah. Thank you. But then you always, you know, you had so much stuff going on, but yeah, how did you, how do you stop from becoming cynical in that? Or just like a monster? Oh, let's be clear. I definitely had moments of monster. You know, I mean, the girls would be like, a lot of times we met in my office. And if someone called me up, I'd be one minute, I'd be talking to them as I'm talking to you. And the next minute, I'd answer my phone and be like, you know, this is Alyssa. And they'd hear the following. Uh huh. Mmm um. Ah, okay, and they'd be like, uh oh, they're about to get bad a.m. voice because my voice would change if I thought someone was being suspect. You know what I mean? There was no, there were very few people who I ever thought were truly, truly just like, you know what, Ellis is cool and we want to hang out with her. That was not the case. You know, most of the invitations I got were, actually, here's a funny thing. There was an investigation, it was a random thing a couple of years ago. And some of my old emails were brought to my attention. And the law enforcement person who was asking me these questions was like, so your emails, I was like, yeah. They're very different than you. I was like, yeah, 'cause I was fucking by the book. You will learn that. And they went as they went through all of these. It's like, you know, you see me, and I'm like a fairly upbeat, you know? Funny person. But some of these emails, when they read them back to me, I was just like, damn, I was good. You know, I don't even think I could do it anymore. I've lost all etiquette. I just fucking punctuate shit with exclamation points now and emojis. But back then, I was just like, please see previous. I literally replied to someone once and just said, please see previous response. Like what the fuck? And that was Obama. But that's like, that's how it happened. That's just what happens, is that you just become, I didn't feel a need to make a lot of these people my friends because I just assumed that they were coming to me because they wanted something that I would ultimately not want to give them or be able to give them. So it was like, let's just cut to the chase. See previous email. See previous emails. Oh, so cutting. So cutting. I really feel that in my bones. But now, you know, because you said, didn't you tell me you worked for Bernie right out of college or during college? During college during college, I went, oh my God, you guys, how funny, so here's my. I know I know Vermont. My university of Vermont sweatshirt. So when I was a freshman sophomore, when I was a sophomore, so the funny thing that's so different about politics now and I wish that people would get, I wish it would go back a little bit to the way it was. I mean, being a freshman and a sophomore at the university of Vermont. I mean, I saw Bernie on television like every day. You know? And he came to campus all the time. They registered people to vote. You know, and when I saw him on television, you know, I think I would have been hard pressed to figure out if he was a Democrat or Republican, because really he was just trying to help people, you know? And I thought that was so cool. And so I was like, you know what? Maybe I should try this. Maybe I should be an intern. And so I applied to be an intern and you guys. It was like the greatest fucking decision of my life. Because I went from being a French major with a minor in Japanese to political science with minor and French. Because of Bernie, because the thing that I think people misunderstand, and something I really one of the biggest, I mean, Donald Trump did a lot of bad shit. But there's such a difference between public service and politics. And the thing that I loved about being the intern and Bernie's office was that it was public service. It was so little. I almost never heard him talk about politics, and I was such a little do gooder. That when I would, they would send me to pick him up at the airport and drive him to events sometimes. So my big jobs were, I would answer the phone, and this is you guys, this is before email. So people didn't email in or there was no Internet, you know, they didn't use technology to surface their problems. They had to call and talk to me and explain their problem to me and I wrote it down. I signed it to a caseworker. So every Monday, we had a meeting about the incoming and every Friday. We had a meeting about how many problems had been solved. And so when I would go pick up Bernie, sometimes I'd give him casework updates, and sometimes I would binge The New York Times and The Washington Post. Just be ready to regurgitate whatever was on his mind. And he's like, you listen to me. I don't give a shit about what's in The New York Times or The Washington Post. I want to know what's in the rutland Herald. What's in all the lobe, the brilliant press, like what's in all the local papers. And it was such a game changer. You know, like it really was, I was like, oh my God, he just fucking cares about people. And so anyway, I was so extra when I was an intern. And they're like, do you want to also intern as a campaign aide because it was the they were gearing up for 96, you guys. You're not for the big big midterm in 96. And he was like, do you want to go down? I was like, do you want me to work free? Someplace else, like, of course I'll do that. And by the end of the summer, they were like, do you want to come to Washington? And the funny thing is I did go to Washington and Bernie's office the next summer. And the experience was so night and day. I loved every day of being in the Vermont office..

"We know what your job's going to be. Like when you get here and the holidays are going to be fucking miserable because everybody's going to want something from you. You are going to hide from friends. You're going to hide from your family because everybody wants a tour. Everyone wants a Christmas invitation. So we wanted to make sure that you two got to come in and have a tour of the Christmas decorations when you could really enjoy them because you'll never enjoy them again. And let me tell you something. Nothing more touching. I mean, she and I still talk about it like we held hands the entire time. Like we had just been let out of prison or something. And when we did get there, his words could never have been truer. It was like your inbox was just full of people who were like, oh, hey, don't know if you remember me at a party. And it's like, you know what? That's why I never went to parties again, because I was like, no, I actually didn't because I've never been to a party, okay? So you could just keep that to yourself. Just ask me if you want to come, but don't pretend like I went to a party because I haven't left my house or my office in two years. Yeah, okay, so this is the thing that I think, especially with the dating and also with friends. That's a mind fuck about, I guess, both politics and entertainment. Which are so similar. I mean, look, we always said D.C. was just LA for ugly people. Hello. Hello. And well, okay, so I mean, and also both of them run by wealthy elites. So let's be honest. But I guess the thing is that how do you figure out actual friendships? Because I know when I first moved out here in 2013, a bunch of people I had my first job here and a bunch of people that I knew kind of from New York like got in touch with me and they were like, oh, we should get lunch or something. I'm like, oh, cool, I guess they're reaching out, you know, I'm new here, and then very quickly I found out that they wanted me to pass on a packet for them, or they wanted me to introduce them to someone. I'm like, okay, okay. And I was very bad, and I'm still very bad at sussing out. When someone genuinely is interested in me, or when someone is like using me, I mean, at this point, I get to Naomi or someone like that. And. Yeah, so it does kind of fuck with your head and I'm kind of curious how you dealt with that as a wholesome person. As a genuine person. It's a genuine wholesome person. So there were definitely people. So the interesting correlation right between D.C. and LA is that very transitory. If your show doesn't get picked up in LA, it doesn't, you know, if you get canceled, you have to move on and who knows if you can afford to stay in the city. In D.C., a lot of people's livelihoods are up on the chopping block every two years, right? If you're in Congress, 6, if you're in the Senate, or if you're in The White House. And so for me, most of my friendships came from work. I did not really have many, I can probably count on my hand, maybe one or two people who I never, ever worked with, who I became friends with when I was in D.C.. But most of my friends, like I said, my deputy Danielle. I mean, she wasn't just my deputy. I mean, we were like sisters. I mean, like all of the kids who worked for me or they're not kids now, they're in their 40s, but you know, people who work for me, Jon Favreau, Dan Pfeiffer. I mean, we'd just been through shit, like when you're especially like on the campaign, right? It's like a bunch of people moved to Chicago to work for Barack Obama, who was running against Hillary Clinton. You guys like, we didn't move to Chicago because we thought we were gonna win. We moved to Chicago because we thought Barack Obama was fucking legit and that, you know, if he was going to do, if he was going to make a run for it, then if there was one person we wanted to get behind, it was him because the one thing that we knew about him is that he would never sort of change who he was to be able to do that. So when you have that sort of alignment, like those all the people who went not all of them. In the very we call ourselves the originals, the people who were there in the very beginning. We were all there. We were like, we moved out there. We didn't know if we'd be unemployed in 5 or 6 months. Like, we didn't know what was going to happen to us. And so there is a real camaraderie and honest wholesomeness that comes from that. And so those people who were my friends there really remained my closest group of friends to this day. And that's how I made my Friends, honestly, because everybody else was sort of. You know, and then there were the people too, like the people who went to work for Hillary, who were like yo girl, we're always going to be pals, like some of my friends who went to work for Hillary threw me a party to go to when I left for Chicago. And then there are the people who are like, if you ever talk to Alyssa mastromonaco again, you're dead to us. And so it's a real. Oh my God. It's a crazy. Environment, especially I'm just like. Those people are the K hive right now. Entirely possible. And so that's how that's how I made my true blue Friends. Because they were the people who, when you were sick as a dog, they were the people who were like, just go home, and I got your back. That's who those people were. And so those are the people who I brought to The White House with me. They were utterly reliable. You know, utterly reliable, both personally and professionally. And then do you have to build up these other people because I only see this stuff at a distance and so I don't know what the real actual emotional investment is for you or the like or the existential or like any like what does it actually to be there in The White House and having to deal with people like.

"Again, it's nothing crazy and super aggressive, but just the notion that they understand and then I would still use the technique of like pivoting to something else after that. So saying like anyway, you know, what's going on with this sports team or what's going on with the TV show. So I do think there is a little bit depending on the situation obviously you can use a judgment, but I do think there is a time and place where you can kind of push people a little bit on things that are problematic because I'm someone who's trying to come to terms with that in my own life, but there might be someone who's really struggling with that and something like that can be really triggering or upsetting to them. And so if I can handle that uncomfortability, I don't mind doing that with people. So that's my advice for that. Thanks. So. Well, thank you. Yes, push it. I think I might have said that too. You say push it real good. Just be like, you know what? I got time for this. I love to use the word nonsense. And that's very accurate to me. So I think that was very good. I really appreciate it. I don't think we said that because I don't think either you or I would intentionally make an interaction awkward. I think you and I both do whatever we can do to deflect awkwardness as much as possible. That's true. That's true. Hey, if you can handle that's why I play this, hey, if you can handle that uncomfortability, uncomfortability, discomfort really. Discomfort. But that's all right. Do we have another one? We do. This is from rivers episode two, I think. There was a woman in a lesbian relationship. And they broke up and then there was an older drama, yes. Drama around. Yes. Incestuous friendships and sort of we were together, but now I gotta crush on this other one. And I don't have a crush on the right, so okay, so this, I think, gave a perspective that we did not have. We'll always do and I did not have. So this is some feedback for a.m. who was on the show this week. Had a ex fiance thing going on with SB and is now trying to set boundaries with M I think it was very complicated. Anyway, here's my thought. Based on my own 20s. I'm very experienced as I had with people in their late 30s and 40s. SB might be a mess and might be glad you're rid of her or whatever. But I think the real villains of this story are these older folks who are maybe behaving in a predatory way towards the young queers in their community because I feel like I've seen that before. I've had it happen to me. It's a real thing and you know, maybe SB didn't break up their marriage maybe one or both of them went after SB who knows. I'm just saying this might be another way to look at it and definitely if M is in any way not respecting your boundaries, put a lot of distance there. That's my advice just really put a lot of distance there. All right. Good luck. All right, bye. Good luck. Rich to be. That felt like someone who had been through things. Yeah. Well, while they said, exactly. In their 20s. So yes, maybe the older couple was the one that initiated the air one of the people in the older couple was initiated things. And that's what started off. Who knows? I know. But it was interesting to have it refocused. Gotta reframe it, baby. You gotta reframe it, rename it. Reclaim it. Reclaim it. Reframe it rename it reclaim it. Come on, Andy. Is that a real phrase? I just said it, but it's like on a book, just free rhymes. Come on. Someone wrote a comment and they want you to put some stuff from your half hour on shirts. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I was thinking I'm sure that just says swangin. And you just have to know. What's the thing you said about Jan? I need a vacation from Maui? Well, that would be good on you. Yeah, trying to be a Jan of this life. I think they said they wanted that on a T-shirt. Trying to be a jam in this life with Naomi ekperigin, a little cartoon. Version of your face underneath it, something like that. Before we get into the episode, Naomi, I just want to say, you know, the show is mostly funded by our Patreon. Yes. All right, absolutely.

Our wonderful guest is, I mean, she's brilliant. She's warm. She's funny. She makes the best jam in town. And she is Alyssa mastromonaco henny.

Nick Cannon Needs to Be Home With Baby Zen's Mom

"I said the other day that Nick Cannon who's suffering an awful tragedy of losing a 5 month old son, zen. I'm not making fun of it. My heart goes out to him and the mother of this baby. I think her name is Alyssa Scott. Beautiful girl. Horrible, awful man. I can make fun that he wants to, you know, impregnate the whole world and have how many kids we don't even know. I make fun of his turbans, how much he works. Blah, blah, blah. Losing a kid, it's not supposed to happen. So I'll draw the line at making any jokes there. Obviously. But I said when he went on the shoes talk show, one of his three or four jobs. And decided to say this on air that I lost my son, the audience had no clue. It was gut wrenching. He cried through it, but then he kind of wrapped it up by saying, but you know what? I'm here, and I'm doing what I gotta do, and I thought, I don't think you wanna do this, bro, I think you should have stayed home. It's not for your own self, but the fact that you have a woman there, grant that she's not your wife, but you share a child together. It has to be some kind of love there. Be home for her. Be on for her heartbreak. She carried this boy. And he finally faced the music, because I guess he's heard it from a bunch of people. He said, a lot of people keep asking me like, man, why are you even at work? Especially my family members. Boy, you need to go sit down somewhere. You got too many jobs already. Allow yourself to just be yourself, which is what I said exactly. And then Nick said, I appreciate that. All that advice. And I know it comes from a place of care, but to me, this isn't work. This is love. And he explained that he didn't feel perfect, but feeling genuine support from the people surrounding him at work gave him comfort. He went on air again and said yesterday, it was a little easier than today because yesterday I was so laser focused and even numb. I just knew I had to get it done. Today I'm a little torn. I'm a little confused because it's a hurting thing. I'm grieving. I feel guilty on so many levels. That's exactly what I'm saying. You want to feel a little guilty by not giving that woman the child's mother, some more time with you. I don't care if she has her brothers or mother or father there. She needs the man that made that baby with her to be by her side for four or 5 days, bro

"Who i don't even have to tell you political affiliation. But here's his voting record. Let's say it's like ted cruz or something like that where you can't deny that there's some ego stuff going on there some power so what you do. It's a great question. That's why i said early on. There's a difference between politics and partisan politics right so everything is inherently political. Politics is personal exactly and one of the ways. I use my platform. As i try to always talk about those issues. The i think that we oftentimes get stuck in these echo chambers. Where we're only if you will preaching to the converted that's why the algorithms on all these social media channels are so dangerous because you are only getting side that you can digest that palatable the side that doesn't challenge your fragile ego exactly even is there are plenty of highs and one of my dear friends started an organization that i think you would love. Call the tahari justice center which is one of the largest nonprofit coalition of attorneys. Who are on the frontline fighting for the rights of immigrant women and girls who are fleeing domestic violence and gender based violence and genital mutilation etc and. They're actively always campaigning to change policy. And that's different right policy while it may seem like it is intertwined with partisan politics. Actually i believe in many ways is separate because i think we need to be moving in a direction where it is about the outcome and not about the party and that is where spirituality comes. That's where justice comes in. That's where we have that strong sense of the personal political of understanding that. Okay what am i fighting for gun. Violence great well. I'm not going to go take on the nra because guess what the nra's never going to change their mind. But there are a lot of people that i believe that live in places that may vote in line with the way that party votes who are deeply compassionate spiritual sensitive people but they've been completely written off because they've always voted for a certain party and the more that we do that the more that we're forgetting that we're all human beings that we all are empathetic compassionate sensitive people. We all love. We all have dreams and hopes and parents and we all suffer and we all feel pain. And if i can reach these people then maybe i can change. That law can change that world and that's separate than just jumping on the bandwagon and talking about a person. We're voting for campaigning. And there are some deeply spiritual fundamental truths missing from our current two party system that will never change by someone being elected or someone else being elected. I have met with ted cruz on gun. Violence prevention and it was a two hour meeting. And i thought it was super important for us to go in. I went in with ben jackson. Who's our producer of this podcast. And also fred gutenberg who lost his daughter jaime at fourteen in the parkland shooting an unlikely meeting at the us. Capitol tuesday between senator ted cruz and actress and metoo movement and now gun laws activists elissa milano. It started with this tweet from milano. September i in which she asked can someone site which passage of the bible. God's states it is god given right to own a gun crews replied an excellent question worth considering carefully without the snark of twitter. I thought it was important to take that meeting. It was hard for me. Because i got it from both sides people like. Why are you meeting with the enemy but also people from the right like. Why would he meet with you. You're just an actress. Stay in your lane guy. You gotta love that show up dribble. Stay in your lane. But this isn't that the problem. Yes exactly. isn't this whole idea of the other and it happens and unfortunately it happens on both sides and one of my favorite quotes from our faith is paolo when he talks about what happens to argue about a principal or a teaching. He says they're both wrong. And this idea that we have an enemy but yet we're fighting for a common goal is antithetical to unity and we have to start to see each other as you don't like each other. We have to love each other. We just have to recognize the interconnectedness of all of us of everything of everything. And i think that we have completely lost that and in a way. It's bizarre because we are more connected than we've ever been before with the internet and social media. I always say social media's like time travel like we can be with people who are fleeing from afghanistan and the taliban at the same time that we're getting the score of the baseball game. It's really remarkable. But i don't know how we got to the point where we can't connect that all of this is connected that the individuality is not a thing every once in a while and this is such a silly thing but i'm gonna share with you but every once in a while i will look at my coffee and i will specifically think there is someone across the globe that pick these coffee beans that ended up in my kitchen and i just feel like if we did a little bit more of that and it is a tale as old as time right at that. We're all under the same stars. We all look for the same moon and yet it feels like we have just gotten and i think a lot of it has to do with people are just working way too hard. I think that to make a living in this country but a lot of countries. You have to work too hard that you don't get to work on your soul to work on your heart to work on your spirituality. I wanna talk about your book man enough and also you co host. A podcast of the same name. Will you tell us about both and really tell us what you're looking to achieve with those. Yeah so i wrote man enough. It's a personal kind of meditation. Masculinity and i use my life and my story and my mistakes as an example i never had men in my life model vulnerability. Imagine with me for a moment. A world is peaceful and loving as you can. What do we think that world would say what it means to be a real man when i was young. Heard the mighty tales mighty warriors and their crusades. The superheroes saving the world in their uniforms and capes. I wanna be a hero mom. I ikea fly in the clouds. Hey dad look wackadoo. Doesn't it make you proud. They cheered me as i beat up the bad guys and put them all in jail. My superpower never ever fail and then one day too. Soon i learned didn't have those superpowers and that cape was just a piece of cloth cried for hours. I've put on every mask every suit of armor that you could put on as a man. I have hurt. Countless people have hurt myself. I've been deeply hurt. And this is a personal journey. Where i kind of take the mask off. And just say hey. I'm sharing this. Because i believe that there are hundreds of millions if not billions of men that identify with these same issues and one of my favorite compliments came from brother. Who's trans man. Fifty year old black trans said for the first time in my life. I read your book and i felt seen and that was the most important message i got because i couldn't think of someone farther away from my story than this person and yet it showed me that the universal truth of suffering the way that we treat men the way that we put us men in a box and then train our men to then hurt to acquire to dominate happens to everybody regardless of gender. So it's pretty gnarly and vulnerable and honest. I talk about things like my struggle with porn and my first sexual experience which honestly was salt which. I couldn't say those words in the book at the time. Because i hadn't truly healed enough to be able to. I've been on personal journeys since then of recognizing what actually happened to me and just not honoring. My feelings as bell hooks writes about and thinking that bravery is actually about physical risk and fiscal feats versus emotional. And so the whole book takes you on a journey from a lot of different viewpoints of what i've experienced in my life even down to dating and marriage and success you talked about work and work addiction and my hope is that people see themselves and what i'm loving hearing right now is that let's be real. I knew that women would buy before men but an reading so many messages from women who have read this book and who for the first time. Feel some compassion for men. And that's what. I want to say like not that. They're listening to your podcasts. Elissa but if they are that's awesome but guys who maybe are put off by that phrase toxic masculine the new year guys that maybe feel like they're under attack the feminist movement. It makes them feel like they're under attack the end of the day. This is about compassionate empathy and recognizing that all of us are enough. But we're not taught to believe that growing up. We're taught that we have to become ex in order to feel this. Masculinity is a performance that we must earn. And if you just think about that if you think about the fact that masculinity can be taken from us then you know it's not real. I can't take your feminine. You eliza i could maybe say that you're in your masculine but i can't take your femininity away. You can take my masculinity away from this fake word called them escalation you can take it away from me because it's not real because it's a performance and if i spend my life trying to perform for approval to be seen as enough that never going to be happy. I'm always going to be chasing a carrot into my grave and at the end of the day. Happiness comes from contentment and from recognizing that we are enough as we are so. That's the book and the podcast is really just about expanding the conversation to have awesome people on like yourself maybe one day and anytime anytime thank you. I'm a whole litter but folks that have deep conversations about this stuff because it's one thing to read a book another thing to listen to. Maybe somebody you admire or somebody. You wouldn't think would go deep on this topic and talk about the things they've experienced in their life because that's how we learn it's so important to have conversations about things that are filled with nuance. Because i think we're in a time when nuance just doesn't exist especially on the internet because of context collapse exactly and finally my last question for you is what gives you hope my children and all the children well justin bell doni. You give me hope. Thank you so much for all you do. And being a part of the podcast. Thank you for your bravery over the course of my career. I've had the great honor playing some of the greatest male role models ever represented on television. You might recognize me as male. Escort number one. Photographer date rapists. Two shirtless tape rapists from the award. Winning spring break shark attack surely medical student shirtless steroid using conman and in most well known role as rafael. a brooding reformed playboy who falls through all things virgin and his only occasionally shirtless. Now these roles don't represent the kind of man. I am in my real life. But that's what i love about acting. I get to live inside characters very different than myself. But every time. I got one of these roles. I was surprised because most of the men i play uis. Machismo charisma in power. And when i look in the mir. That's just not how i see myself. It should be no secret by now that we live in a world which expects women to change to accommodate the failings of men all the time. You hear well if you don't want the attention don't dress like that or she shouldn't have been at that party. Man by and large are the perpetrators of sexual harassment and discrimination domestic abuse and other expressions of patriarchy. It can be easy to forget that men are also victims of the same system. We expect men to change but far too few of us are teaching men how to change in a way that validates their humanity and leads to positive outcomes. That's why people like justin and the work they do are so important redefining what it means to be a man in healthy ways and showing men the path to define their own enlightened masculinity is such a critical part of creating a culture which is safe for all of us telling men to do better without showing them. What better looks like is a fool's errand so this is my challenge to men now. You know there are tools out there. There is a path where men are leading the way for you to follow to a better version of you now. You have to choose to do the work. Don't buy into the red pill pickup artist bullshit. you know. that's not good. You know it hurts women and ultimately it hurts everyone instead book to justin or to ted bunch of a call to man or to any of those men who want to help you set yourself free from a truly broken system.

"Beth rosenberg on the show. Sarry is a public high school teacher in manhattan whose career was originally due to start on september eleventh. Two thousand one school time can always bring about some mixed emotions. Then you add cove in one thousand nine hundred anxiety the to the mix. It can be a lot of profit. We've got a local breaking news alert for parents students and teachers in ware county. All public schools will now be closed for two weeks because of a rise gerona virus cases. This all started with the school board in williamson. County passing a mask mandate that went into effect today. Hundreds of parents who could not fit inside the auditorium stayed outside shouting no more masks during a protest. The president saying today this is about safety not about politics. Very term itself critical race theory has become a political flashpoint across the country. Especially when it comes to how to teach young people about justice and equity in america. Hi my name is sherry. Beth rosenberg. I believe that we have to educate in order to have a democracy. Sorry not sorry sorry you are going back to school and the delta variant is raging across the country. Tell me how that feels. It feels scary. I will say that my first emotion about back to school is. I am excited. I was teaching remotely all last year while since march twenty twenty and when i finished up the school year online i talk to all my students from this year. Saying we go back. This was when it was announced in new york city that we didn't even the masks anymore and all my students we're getting vaccinated so we left the end of the school year on such a good note that we're gonna have a pizza party when we get back and meet each other in real life and they're going to help me decorate my classroom. Something i loved doing. And all that came crashing down mid july and suddenly my emotions around returning to splurge back to how. I was honestly feeling your ago and i hate to say that out loud because i had such different expectations of how i was going to feel this summer. Is it anxiety. Can you pinpoint what you're feeling anxieties. The word for it. It's anxiety for my students because first of all. I know that they're returning with heightening anxiety. After a year being essentially shot in not socializing the way they're used to and they already felt anxiety and now. I know for sure that everyone's going to be extra anxious about safety about just the fact that even when you're vaccinated this virus can spread and so i wanted to put all my social emotional support into helping them. Acclimate back to in person. Learning and what that means and my goal is to add a lot of socializing back into our activities because they haven't been able to socialize with each other in that way and now. I'm anxious about even doing that. Because god forbid. I do activity where people are a little too close and someone gets sick in my classroom. It's so unfair. I mostly just feel angry for our young people. Because they're getting short changed a second year. I know as. I dropped my kids off to school this morning. For their first day. Bellas in first grade and milos in fourth grade. And they're too young to get the vaccination so also dealing with that terror of of course they're going to get sick because kids get sick and school and being someone who's anxious anyway once that happens. Let's say it starts with both. My kids usually get super poopie when they get sick. Guess sign that. They're seconds so. I was trying to work through in my head that first time during the school year when they get sick and my own hysteria of is this just strap as it something that we can treat with antibiotics or is it cova. And that's just because i think they're still so unknown about how children get this and how they get sick and what parts of there being are impacted. I'm just terrified. i'm so sorry it's just. It's not my fault but as a woman. I always apollo i apologize on behalf of the delta variant right. He's apologized i'm not yes. Sorry not sorry. What cova protections is your school requiring for you and for the students. I believe that we have those pepe filters in every classroom. Not every classroom. That exist in. My school building has windows so i'm hoping that like last year we don't use those windowless buildings but that has to do with capacity. How are teachers responding to this. Debate over mass mandates so by and large teachers want the mass mandates across the country. It's not that teachers like mass. It's really uncomfortable to teach in a mask is uncomfortable to be in a mask. As part of the reason why ventilation systems really have to be better. But we've just been thrown a curve ball with the delta variant and we want more important than anything else. Schools need to be open full on four kids for a safe and welcoming and joyful school year. And we need to keep them open. And that's what the mass mandate will help do as of now what's going on in new york city. At least i can sort speak for other places by in new york city. The last shock beat article. I read that covers. Education is that administrators are in conversation with the department of education asking them from work guidance. About what social. Distancing is supposed to look like the other issue that i saw it. There's a group called teens take charge. And they're a young activist group in new york city. They fought for school integration and they just sent a petition out asking for a remote school option. So that's something else. That's kind of looming in the background. That what about the kids under twelve. What happens if they're immune compromise or family members are and so we're not going to give them the option to learn remotely until they can be vaccinated but also the breakthrough cases. Which aren't that many. But when you think about trying to get our lives back to normal going to do those things that we want to do like my brother fully vaccinated went into a german and worked out as lots of people have done and he got the delta varian and so then he was terrified of bringing it home to luke and to charlotte has wife. They were knock on wood. Fine milo and bella gets sick they bring it home. There's possibility for breakthrough cases. And then you look at my parents who are in their mid seventies and part of me feels like we message this all wrong from the beginning i feel like we message dead on a nat. Well obviously it..

"I would just like if we could focus on clean water. That's half the battle unfortunately in this country and a lot of people know this but we have pipes that are over one hundred years old. Don't even know how to talk about that. Los angeles downtown los angeles. We had a lead in our water fountain issue because pipes were over a hundred years old. You know we saw what happened in flint michigan clean. Water is a basic human right as a unicef ambassador. It's something that i fight. Four in developing nations. The fact that we have not taken care of our water system is amazing it needs to and it needs to happen now because there's no recovery from lead poisoning children their education their ability to learn. Everything depends on clean water and that is also infrastructure. So we have to get serious about this and you're right about the roads and the tunnels and bridges. It's a disaster waiting to happen like the building. Collapse in florida was because of negligence because of basic infrastructure of that building they knew that there was a problem and it just went ignored and look at what happened. That could happen all over this country. It's terrifying on the flip side. What do you think they missed like. Wet spin the biggest failure. I don't like to look at it at its failure. Because i think that they did a really good job. People say oh. The democrats have majority both houses. And what's going on. But they have to remember in the senate that they need sixty votes even know there is a majority. they can't get stuff passed. If that was the case then for the people would pass. George floyd would pass and so i wouldn't say it's the administration itself. It's we need to do. Something about congress itself in order to change the filibuster. I strongly believe we need to do that or otherwise. It's getting to be very difficult for the biden harris administration to get something passed. I don't think it's anything on their fault to do that. For the people should have passed. You should allow people access to the polls. It shouldn't be something that would be an issue but because there's not enough votes at even know people say oh. Democrats have majority. You mean still need sixty votes. And so i think that's important now. There's always work around. Do i believe that we should make a federal holiday. Absolutely let people go to the polls. It's crazy we haven't done that yet. I think we should start having said all of that. Do you think presidents deserve the credit or blame. They get for what happens early in their terms. And thinking about what you said in particular. Obviously mitch mcconnell and joe manchin and others people from both sides and the amount of obstruction they've enabled. What are your thoughts on that. I think absolutely. I think that as democrats they definitely work with people across the aisle but sometimes we have to get stuff through sometimes. We're just not able to do that. I'm going gonna ask you again. You said that you oppose scrapping the filibuster. The question i have is whether or not and you say you hope that that will bring the parties together. The question i have is whether or not you're doing it exactly the wrong way and hear me out on this. If you were to keep the idea that maybe you would vote to kill the filibuster. Wouldn't that give. Republicans an incentive to actually negotiate because all joe mansions out there. And who knows what he's gonna do by taking it off the table habit. You empowered republicans to be obstructionist. So i don't see it as a failure of the administration. I think that we as the american people need to say okay. I need to get out and vote. And twenty twenty two so that bake sure the biden embarrass administration have enough representatives there so we can get stuff done to help the american people. This is a call to action in twenty twenty and say listen. Something has to be done. The democrats need sixty percent majority in the senate so we can get stuff passed for the people at george floyd stuff that should not be an issue for the american people to help them one of the things. I really hate about american politics as that. We're only six months into the presidency and already talking about the midterm elections and they are starting to take prominence do think that we need to shorten election seasons to let some actual governing happen. No i think that we me to make it easier for people to vote. I believe in the state of colorado. They mail people their votes to give people access. And there's places rican drop off female. They can track it. There's procedures in because people say oh there's gonna be fraud. It's worked in the state for many years and that people should get mailed their ballots. Not have to ask for it. I remember protecting voting in florida and a woman came in to vote. And they said. I'm sorry ma'am you haven't voted in a certain amount of time you can vote. And they just took her off the register. I know but i didn't do anything they're like. I'm sorry there's nothing we can do. And so i think we need to make sure that we give people access to the polls in able them to do that and people work. I mean the fact that someone's waiting in line hours in line in someone in some states can't give them a bottle of water or give them a slice of pizza because they worked all day they maybe have two or three jobs. ran over. there in stood in line in the lines at some places are horrific. I've seen it and they're waiting there and they're hungry and then people have a choice at go eat or am i going to vote. They should do that to people and so they should start making it a crime if you give someone a slice of pizza. It's so upsetting and listen as an activist. I've been waiting for the right issue to get arrested for an a really feel like going to georgia and handing out water and pizza might just be it because it is so absurd and you make a great point into my listeners. Please check your voter registration. Make sure that your registration was not purged off the rolls. Make sure that you are still registered. Sadly at something that we all need to do before elections. We can't do it at the last minute. Also remind her friends to look at their registration. Make sure they're still registered. It is vital. Your book focuses on the build back better agenda of the biden presidency. Which i think is really exciting. What do you think is the most important thing the president can do right now to make sure his agenda doesn't disappear into the next campaign that's a really good point. I think it's important for him to really talk to the american people. Studies have shown if a majority of american people support it than it's hard for people to vote against something and so it smart how he talks the american people about staff for example the voting rights and showing how people support it and it shouldn't be whether you're republican or democrat but then reaching out to your representative and saying hey you're my district. I'm supporting and if they don't do it to get out there and vote and do what he can as the president whether it's issue executive orders. Doing whatever he can making voting federal holiday. Whatever he can do to able to make sure his agenda is passed and do that. Now some staff can pass in the senate reconsiliation staff where you don't need sixty percent majority as well and try and go that way as well to do that. I think it's important to work between the isles publican democrat but if he can't get his agenda done by doing that. That is important for him to proceed and do that. I think that's important absolutely couldn't agree more. And finally what.

"Are you worried about the effect football hat on your brain. At times. I do worry. Have you had a scam. I have had a scan before a routine not because of any symptoms or anything like that and it was clear and clean thankfully haven't expressed any symptoms. But i think right now. My focus was truly been on being the best neurosurgeon. I possibly could be and trying to help in this space anyway. I can not only through the science but also advocacy. I feel like my voice being a former player. Maybe the nfl teams or other orientations. May listen a little bit more. Well this guy played and now he's studying neuro-surgery and neuroscience maybe he has a bit of authoritative voice on this subject. So i would love to use that platform. What do you think of all of the new advancements we've made in mental health with psychedelics. I figure it's very pertinent that we have now expanded and brought in the way we think about mental health. The way we think about psychiatry psychology. The way we think about the human in general mental health used to be something very stigmatized. Especially in certain demographics. Where you really don't want to talk about it or you brush aside because it didn't seem like it had a physical tangible sort of approach. You can't see it exactly and so now that people are at least embrace the fact. Okay well maybe we can't see it but it's real. There's real life consequences for individuals. How can we use alternative therapies and other modalities to help. These individuals achieve their goals in their health. Achieve their goals in their life. Allow them to return to their communities and be successful and contribute. That's incredibly important. Appreciate the fact that more minds are occupying the space to target an effect these individuals in a very positive way. I think it's pretty interesting and as someone who suffers from anxiety. I can tell you that for me. My entire life my go-to my base feeling is a feeling of doom. And i'm very optimistic. I always believe that good things will happen but if there is any sort of situation i go to fight or flight and it takes me very long time to get out of it because i feel like my brain. It's like that is the shortcut to make sure that i'm okay is to put me in a state of panic and it's been like that my entire life so the idea that there is treatment or people are experimenting with psychedelics to give your brain other pathways besides the one that you keep going to. That might be hurtful to yourself whether it be through. Depression anxiety is really interesting to me and also makes a lot of sense. I agree for a long time. Westernized medicine has been very black and white. The hasn't been studied or written about and the new england journal of medicine or some huge publication. They wanted to stay away from it. We're going to stick to this sort of cookie cutter approach. But that doesn't work. Everyone is different. People have different experiences. People have different reactions to different events. As you mentioned there's certain individualized issues that need to be individually looked at examined explored and then tried with modalities that may be unconventional but may work for that individual person so i think medicine is moving more towards that. I think the generation that i've come from and the medical doctors that are coming through medical school at least when i was getting into medical school. We were preached that quite often that look if not the old nineteen sixty medicine anymore where you have an issue lobotomy. Or even issue. Let's just throw you away because you don't matter is really trying to focus on the patient and making sure that they are at the center of their management and then if we could try other modalities then let's do that because it could be effective man if we can help some veterans who have. Ptsd come back and feel safe and that they can contribute to society in a productive way so far it. i'd like to reach quote quote. Football is a man's game. It shouldn't be played until the age of puberty. You said that and you set it in one thousand nine hundred seventy four. How did you know have a sense about the threshold age to your mind. Some forty plus years ago. I played before puberty and got knocked on my acid stunned. Okay what advice would you give as a neurosurgeon and as a professional football player for parents whose kids want to play football knowing what you know now so the advice that i would give as football as alluded to earlier is an amazing team sport. I'm biased. i love the sport. My wife knows nothing about football. But i'm trying to get into it been married for about a year and a half from like georgia whereas football. It's really really huge house man. I tell her dad all the time and her mother like you didn't put your daughter around some football so she can get into it. But that's just my personal by. I think football's a great sport because it teaches you. These sort of intangibles develop these traits. That i think are easily transferable to you being a student a thinker. A leader a christian or whatever it is that you want to be working with people who are different than you working on a team to whereas one collective goal taking coaching. There's a generation. Now that if we get talked to people sometimes crumble instead of writing to the challenge to say you know what okay you wanna challenge me. I'm going to meet that. Challenge head on and i'm going to stand up in the face adversity and do well relying on your fundamentals on pressure comes being adjustable and flexible when kobe hit and my nurse surgery stopped and i had to be cova. Dr adjust and adapt my practice. So that i could help take care of these very sick patients in bossom so all of that works and what i would tell. Parents is think about that when you think about putting your child into football but also make sure that the fundamentals are being taught being emphasized that we're not doing the same old drill that we're doing we have one player lineup. Here another player on appear and they run headfirst and slam into each other. Almost like a macho sort of alpha male drill that really has no benefit to the actual game play but literally. It's just to say who's the biggest dog in the bunch that we're moving away from that we have to make sure the equipment is right. Make sure you have good proper helmets that fit. Well they sure you're wearing the mouthpieces. That are protective. Make sure that you're not playing the sport as tackle football player until you're in your early teens. Maybe eleven twelve years old. Maybe a pre. I will give them advice going forward because i think the game can be done safely but it has to be done in a very controlled and manage way last year. You advised that it was too early for the nfl to play in the pandemic and of course they went ahead and played anyway because a lot of money was at sake and they had a lot of infections. Do you think they should be playing this year. Biggest getting better now. Absolutely you're absolutely right. I was a staunch proponent of not playing last year college pro no less worry about this amick i and i think he was sending a message when you're the nfl or the ncwa or the nba. And you're the major organizations say. Let's focus on health of people who are very vulnerable who aren't multimillion dollar athletes. Because they're sitting from their homes or sitting in their communities and rural and suburban america and struggling with these issues and you could honestly have taken those funds that you had accumulated for your sports. Put your sport on to put into the communities to help with vaccine rollouts. Now they're happening or to help with other health issues. That could help the public health fight and push here. I do believe it was a mistake last year. Now it's getting a little bit better. Numbers are getting better. I'm looking at our hospital general. We don't have as many patients in boston with covert so we're moving more in a normal setting so i think it's reasonable to return now with certain restrictions and limitations whether it be the amount of people who can come whether it be and isolated pseudo bubble whether that means getting players vaccinated so they don't become spreaders and these events. I think he could do it now in.

"Dollars a year was so incensed this entire pandemic as companies would throw up the signs saying hero works here tanko worker. Or how greater these essential workers. They're just wonderful. But don't trades people pay them but we're also a state where we have the highest number of votes who have crushing student loan debt which puts people in a position where they're not able to buy that first home or to start that family or to take a risk and maybe start at enterprise with the dreams and talents that they have because of the weight and because of being affordability. We've seen in higher. Ed there a lot of folks who say well now come. You're black and you're gay. How can you ever win in pennsylvania. Because i will tell people don't have to look like me or love like me to know that i will fight for them because i'm also fighting for myself and i'm fighting for my community. I represent the third poorest districts in the commonwealth parts of my district. The average annual income is under ten thousand bucks there. He'll section on my district. Last time. i saw the numbers on this. We were talking about nine thousand seven hundred and eighty three bucks average annual income in so these are the families who are working two and three jobs who are driving uber. Who were part of the gig economy. Who are working in the grocery stores that kept everything going for doing the service jobs that have become so arsenal of our economy but we have left them out again and again. And you'll sony. People talk about the new deal. The fair labor standards without talking about the fact that in the fair labor standards we actively left out domestic workers on the accuracy left out agricultural works right which make up a lot of the workers in pennsylvania workers who were seen the highest rates of infections. Because they couldn't work from home. Okay you can't do. Agricultural work from home they were out working but yet we don't give them the pay or protections that they deserve. I mean the care industry it needs to be completely restructured from the ground up and we're seeing the repercussions of what happens to a country when they don't put certain respect behind certain positions the two million women that had to leave the workforce because they didn't have childcare. That's a lot of money that has been taken from our economy because of shortage in child and elder care and we need to do better for sure. It's seems correct me. If i'm wrong but it seems like the gop in pennsylvania is not a lot different from the gop and rest of the united states. They're worse and they tried very hard to crush a free and fair election so absolute tell my listeners. What is happening with them in your state right now. A lot of people i think. Got me for the first time nationally. When i was on rachel maddow using the legislative process. And using things i've learned as community organizer to block a bill that i think had it become law. I'm not sure what it would have happened in. Pennsylvania this resolution. Excuse me not build. This resolution will stay called an election. Integrity committee okay which you have to use air quotes four because there was nothing about it at any level of integrity would've allowed them to investigate the election as it was happened to investigate allies that they told they create it lies and then they wanted to investigate their fever dreams. They would have allowed themselves to subpoena ballots to impound voting machines into physically compel elections officials. Were supposed to be counting the votes physically compel them to come before sham hearings to talk about the lies that they were telling about the election and i will never forget. And it's one of the best moments of my career there. Little scooby doo villain press release that they put out after for basically saying you know we would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for exa radical democrat. Forget all the things. They called me but this is what they have been up to for a long time and it hasn't stopped with the election. I had members my colleagues. Sue me in my personal capacity because the president asked me to be an elector to the electoral college. Personally sumi to try to stop me from going. And exercise that responsibility while taking a look at pennsylvania now where the state's highest court dealt another blow to the trump campaign's efforts to overturn election results in a unanimous decision. The court rejected. The trump teams baseless claims of mass voter fraud. This comes one day after the state dismissed a lawsuit brought by republican representative kelly that argue that the state. Gop legislature violated the constitution when it expanded absentee voting. This is bonkers stunts after the election was over the house. Republicans state government committee of which. I remain a member a really powerful committee because it oversees all of our elections as well as just you hear it from the title state government. Almost anything can go to that committee that affects state government and we conducted ten different hearings. Where we heard from elections officials we heard from so many people we also heard from unfortunately members of the heritage foundation and other bonkers. People who were a part of spreading. The election is and are still spreading. These lies today ten different hearings to try to prove their lie and now they want to do things like voter. Id in the state they wanna do. Things like limiting drop boxes limiting the amount of time that people have to utilize the drop boxes. They wanna do all of this stuff because they believe that the way they hold on. Power is to gerrymander districts. Every chance they get every ten years and then to make it as difficult as possible for people to participate in the electoral process in. I am sick of debating these issues with them every single day. Tell people what that's like. Because i think right now. People are thinking about running for these offices on a state level and it might help to hear you. Tell us what it's like and what they're getting into the first advice that i give anybody who's thinking about running for office is to run. You have to run. I would encourage anybody who's listening. You have something to offer. I would encourage you around in a lot of what keeps people from running. Is this belief that the folks were an office are just so much smarter so much better prepared or something then you i work with these folks and i promise you. We're not sending like rocket scientists. Okay these people in many cases don't know what the hell they're talking about and that is what it's like. I'm dealing with a lot of who don't know what the hell they're talking abou. Who are what. I call button. Pushers we have electronic voting in the house and they go in and their job is to look and see how all the other republicans voted and they just vote that way. And that's incredibly unfortunate because we're not having serious conversations about just. What are the best ideas. What are the ideas that have the most support from the pennsylvanians one of the things. We do all the time as we renamed bridges in the state house. We're not fixing lot of time changing names and naming them what it's like. Let's actually invest in making them saying the infrastructure.

"And i went from again one night being at this high school rally where there are a lot of people. Big event biden harris. Whitmer cory booker was there to Marching band like all to then getting home in this crazy way and i unpacked my carry on bag and then i went to the supermarket filled it up with canned soup and toilet paper and all the things that we were all freaking out about getting at that point and to go from that to fifteen months or so later to just like simple thing of god dinner. I hope that we don't do what human beings always do which is to push off the things that were hard and sad and our minds. I think that's how we cope. I know that i have spent very little time. After biden noise elected very little time and energy on even reading anything about trump. I can't go back there. It's triggering for main. No i understand it and look. When i set out to write this book i wanted to not have it. Be another trump book and there's very little donald trump in this book on purpose. I think in a way that hopefully will be refreshing to people because he's there as the context for all of that but it's really this whole story of things that when trump was blotting out the sun and that was the only thing anybody could pay attention but actually was a complete revolution of how things worked in the democratic party and all these super interesting characters and stories we talked mostly about joe biden but like bernie sanders buddha judge elizabeth warren cory booker.

"Maybe i can do something to help now. I don't know what came of that. But i do know that he does follow up with a lot of people he does and he also think this thing about him that i've learned when i don't know him well but he makes you feel scene and he does that in a really intimate special way. The last time i saw him was at a fundraiser. Like right before he got the ticket and i was involved without being involved in their campaign. And i did everything i could to help him win. But the last fundraiser. I saw joe looked at me right in the eye. He gave me a huge hug and he held my hand and he looked me right in the eye and he said i want you to know that we talk a lot about you in our camp and something and the way you told that story that i think is significant in itself. Because he's the president that had states now and you said joe you would. You have ever said. Barack looked at me or donald or george or bill right now. It's something different. And obviously most americans haven't had that kind of conversation with him or the conversation that woman had with him but people do get the sense that that's who he is it comes off of him. It doesn't seem impossible to have that conversation with him when you look at him when you hear him. This like calm that he has. I don't know it. Just it makes you feel better first of all. Also i know and this is something as an activist that is so valuable. I know that he is listening to people in the advocacy activism organizing space. And that if he says something or does something and anyone voices that people who voice that that are closest to the pain..

"Just on the women's march i went to the women's march in dc to cover it. I got out of the trade union station. And i never got even within sight of the stage because it was so many people. It was just overwhelming. How many people were there. And there's a quote from cecile richards. Who is planned parenthood at the time and she said if an organization tried to make the women's march happened on its own the amount of time and money it would have taken never would've been like that and it just happened spontaneously and i think that's a real testament to what activists able to do what people just taking politics into their own hands rebel to do. I want to talk about gun. Violence a little bit more because joe biden has taken a much more active stance on gun violence in his presidency. Obviously it's something. He's been focused on for years in the book end in the real world. We hear a lot about his compassion and his empathy. That the loss of his family seems to have fostered in him. How big of a factor do you think that was in his decision to get into the race and his ultimate nomination. I think it's huge to just go back to the march or for second how this played in. There's a moment in the book that i have of him the day before the march they brought the kids to capitol hill to go meet with their representatives. And the organizers not. Okay who do we bring in. Who's like the speaker that we have here in this moment. And they bring joe biden they bring them in because they know he's obviously big time politician..

"You mentioned. Mayor bowser she was recently admitted to the democratic governors association. Do you think that this is going to help move statehood efforts forward. I think any time that you can talk about the unfair any of the differences. Any conversation about that moves the needle forward. It's why we've seen again of twenty points in support of state of the last four years but absolutely the district operates already as a state county city all same time so anytime somebody tells me we have city mexican will because we have a state board of education. We do stay board of transportation. We do everything the state does any county does so it just makes sense that she's part of the dj our attorney general part of the democratic attorney general's associations well and our district council members of the mcas el national council state legislatures. So it makes sense to elevate all of those officers whether it's Or dj holds office because we are assistant and she acts with the exception. Odyssey nationals who are the proponents of statehood in congress and where is statehood in the legislative process recently passed the house of representatives so there are two hundred sixteen advocates for stated in the house. One to sixteen to two zero six in that one obviously the largest champion of stated in the house of representatives is eleanor holmes norton. Our delegates represented jamie raskin from maryland obviously is a huge supporter as well. There's a number of former zone of debt halland now attorney general of minnesota keith. Ellison there's a number of folks who have advocated loudly In the house on the senate we stand at forty four cosponsors original sponsor for a total of forty fives all of them from democratic hopkins. Senator carper is the lead on the bill. Senator van hollen of now because champions over on the senate side and we expect at some point here relatively soon a hearing in the senate homeland security committee on the bill which would be the first hearing about some end arises afternoon along with several of our colleagues to discuss the key to end the policy of taxation without representation which millions of americans in the district of columbia have endured over for over two hundred years and hundreds of thousands still endure. Today is policy was wrong. In seventeen seventy six when thirteen colonies took on the mayas thing on earth to end. It is wrong today. Wow so the time is now absolutely. There is no reason to wait anymore. Tell us about. Dc vote and how my listeners can support the work. Do vote is one of the longest established dc statehood organizations. We've been in existence for twenty three years you can head to. Our website is the most obvious. Dc vote dot org. You can follow us on twitter at dc underscored vote to forget these discover website where swings through all of that but we actually need folks outside of dc almost more than we need. The folks in dc get invoked ducey residents who fired up showing up and we need people from across the country to take that next step as i said we don't have center some. We don't have a representative that can vote passenger this legislation and to educate people about it. We need to lean on people outside of the district so go to our website. There's tools you can use to talk to your friends and family that is sample tweets and sample post for facebook. You can start a conversation with anybody you know and get them involved in this effort because it is going to take folks from outside this area working on our backs are you hopeful and then my final question is what gives you that hope. I am cautiously optimistic. What gives me that. Hope is where we have common the last four years one example. I can get when we first past the ballot initiative and really focused on statehood. We developed a sign on letter to where we could get organizations to join our efforts in support it and we struggled to get to fifty one organizations fifty one scottish a big thing around here. It's one of our favorite numbers so we pushed to get to there and it was a struggle to get fifty one organization signed off just before the recent house vote. We submitted another letter and it had two hundred seven organizations including some of the largest political organizations coach. We see public support going from thirty four to fifty four percent of the last five years we obscene our cosponsor was. We almost a fireworks. Got one hundred four sponsors the first time we've now passed the bill through the house the first time and the second time in history hasn't happened in two hundred years. We set a goal. Last year of forty cosponsors may hit twenty two when out forty five in the senate and so the trajectory is our direction et grew in orange county california and spent it fair bit a time at the beach and i have often said you can have a really great surfer. But if you don't have the waves and the atmosphere and the win all of the right moment all right time you're not gonna make it to the end and i feel like we're at a point where those things camel on. There's a lot of work still. There's a lot of effort. We need to put forth stuff like this is super helpful. But i think we've got the shot and we've ever had. Well you give me hope. Bow and please call on me if i could be of service to you and dc vote. I really appreciate you being a part of the podcast and sharing your expertise with my listeners. Ventures and much for others. I now yield five minutes to the gentle lady from the district of columbia the author of this bill and moment in history. The great eleanor. holmes norton. Five minutes gentleman is recognized for five minutes. Thank you mr speaker. And i find my good friend. The gentle lady for her leadership on this dc statehood bill congress has both a moral obligation and the constitutional authority passed. Hr fifty one. This country was founded on the principles of no taxation without representation and consent of the governed but dc residents are taxed with representation and cannot consent to the laws under which they as american citizens must live. Okay make no mistake. The republican party opposes statehood for dc solely because they fear giving equal representation to the residents of the nation's capital will be a political nightmare for them. Their entire argument rests on keeping nearly a million people. A million mostly black and brown people out of the national political dialogue because they fear it will hurt their majorities heaven forbid they changed their policies to better reflect the will and needs of these people. Why do that when you could just ignore them. That's what dc statehood is about. It's about telling the government they can't simply ignore hundreds of thousands of residents in the shadow of the capitol building. It's that simple. If congress truly holds to the self evident ideal that all people are created equal then it must allow those people to have equal representation in our government. I mean why are they so afraid.
