Political battle ensues over RBG replacement

"As the country continues to mourn Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There's a political battle brewing over when and how her replacement should be chosen. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar was asked on CNN's state of the union if Democrats have the ability to block a vote to fill her seat. Whatever Mitch McConnell does right now, my Republican colleagues Understand that the voters are voting, and a number of them have already said that the next president, whoever wins should be able to pick the justice Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz explains to ABC is this week why it's important to hold hearings before the election. Unequally divided Court for four can't decide anything that could make this presidential election drag on weeks and months and well into next year. That is an intolerable situation for the country. We need a full court. On Election Day. A second Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, has joined Senator Susan Collins of Maine in opposing efforts to fill Ginsberg seat before the next president is elected President. Trump says he intends to nominate a woman to re plate Ginsberg, possibly this week. Former vice president Joe Biden spoke about the Supreme Court vacancy. During the speech in Philadelphia. Today, he blasted President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for moving within an hour of Justice Ginsburg Ginsberg's death To announce it would nominate and vote on a replacement against her dying wish is this appointment isn't about the past. It's about the future and the people of this nation. The people of this nation are choosing their future right now is they vote? Jam this nomination through the Senate. Just exercise in raw political power. I don't believe the people of this nation will stand for.

"Any doubt. In my mind, they'll try the Cavanaugh playbook all over again. I'll try the same thing. I'll say Oh, this person is a sexist and we'll bring someone out of said Oh, he said. Something wants that I did or, you know, he I was in college and he got drunk and tried to make out with me and I didn't want it. So he's a rapist. It's like, wait, but he didn't even really touched you, You know, but that doesn't matter. They're going to come up with some lie. Some horrible, disgusting lie about an email. You know, and I'm trying to think of what it's going to be with a with a female. What the approach will be. I do think that the If it is Amy Cockney Barrett, the anti Catholic bigotry Is going to be off the charts, and it's just going to be You're going to see that Catholics who believe in Catholic doctrine. Who really believe in it. And aren't like Marxist in Roman collars, walk around talking about how we should be. Open borders, lot of Jesuits doing that, unfortunately, But the Catholics who really believe in the doctor and especially about being pro life Are there, ridiculed by Democrats? Democrats think those people are our absurd. I think that they're you know, silly papists or something. They don't think that that's acceptable. And so you will see Ah, lot of nastiness around that, but Somehow, Democrats were able to convince a lot of blue collar Catholics that A Democrat parties for them, and I look at this and just say You know that That's just a product of the media and people not knowing enough about politics honestly. I don't think it's possible to be. I don't think it's possible to be a believing Catholic and be a Democrat. And really understand the Democrat Party is all about, and I know that it's There are a lot of them there millions of them out there, but I understand what they think they're doing. I don't get it. And for people say Marxism is charity. No. Marxism is the force of the state being used at the whim of an elite to redistribute to take from you. What is yours? You know, to take the week that you have gathered from your own field and give it to other people. And if you don't do with the lock you in prison, that's Marxism. Marxism is not. Oh, just give all to the poor and be nice to everybody. No. It's not how it works. You know if you want to be charitable, if you want to give as much as you want to give to people in need, God bless. Go for it. Somebody else sticking a gun to your head, saying you better give us the stuff or else that's not charity That's tyranny. That's what Marxism is. That's what socialism is. The Democrat Party is redistribution of wealth initiatives. That's what you're really talking about. It's not. It's not about being a good Catholic, but I don't get too far down that That list. Um So I think this is Strap in, folks. I didn't I didn't know this election could get any create. I really didn't You figure you got a A in an election year like this, you have A pandemic. You have b l m You got the economy in this precarious position, and now you're going to add this on top of things. That's why you're going to see Just so much overheated in stupid rhetoric. He prepared for that. I mean, here's Amy Klobuchar. Taking a break from Eating salads with a comb and throwing things at staff staffers who worked for her. I still think the eating the salad with a comb thing is like brush your hair with Connie and eat a salad with it. Here She is. Play 18. All rules will be looked at everything matters here. But joy. I cannot emphasize enough that there are 45 days before an election and it remains what we said The morning yesterday when we had our first early voting in Minnesota when we saw job I knew a terrific job by the way in Duluth, is that what matters is everyone vote and that we the public pressure. On Republicans is to me the most important thing right now, the Republicans who basically stole that seat the last time and now they're trying to do it again. And the public must speak out This love for Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her own words, right her fervent, which is that the next president? That was the last thing she said to the public, that was it. And so I think that we not only respect the past, but we look to what she wanted in the future, and that's what we have to take our action. Stole The seat. Stealing a seat. Let's unpack this, Shall we? That's that's sitting U. S. Senator Amy Klobuchar is a complete mediocrity. But unfortunately your Democrat mediocrity and a lot of flyover states you're able to get elected because of the cities that will vote for you. A shame, but Stole that seat. How do they still last time with Merrick? Garland? What was this? What was the theft there? Does. Obama nominated Merrick Garland in an election year? In the Senate, Mitch McConnell said. Sorry. We're not going to vote on it. So the expectation Wass That that's what should have. That was what Democrats were saying then and you have all these clips. Now they're coming out of Democrats, including with Pickens, where Democrats were saying no, no In the past, you should be ableto. You should be able to fill the seat. Historically speaking, the seed has been filled most of the time, almost all of the time in an election year. So what's really the difference now? The difference is that Democrats want something and then all of their analysis. All their legal theories are built around. What do they want?.

Certainly a part of this conversation on this Supreme Court justice battle that is that is unfolding against the backdrop of a presidential election will get other news worked in here as well. But let me go here for a quick second. I get it. Abortions going to be a big issue. Immigration is going to be a big issue. Obama care is going to be a big issue. The usual sorts of issues that come up every time you have a Supreme Court. Confirmation. Or should I say, every time say absent the Brett Kavanaugh character assassination confirmation where in Kamala Harris Kamala Harris, who is now running for the vice presidency of the United States. And Amy Klobuchar. Called Brett Kavanaugh, a rapist in front of his teen age daughters. Will kamala Come on in off the campaign trail. And be part of the hearings. I think not. I think it's a little beneath her at this stage. She already did that bitch. She doesn't need to do it again. But what is the issue that really ought to be front and center in the confirmation fight? I submit to you. It's not Rover's his weight I submit to you. It's not immigration. I submit to you. It's not Obama care. Can we get really about where we are as a country right now? About the role of government. Ordering you to wear a mask. How about the role of government ordering you to shut your business down and not ask any questions? How about the role of government? With broad spectrum shut down orders or Or even maybe a little side order of religious liberty. Your church can't be open. And if it is open, we, the local authorities. We, the state authorities. We the federal authorities dictate that you may have no more than one person in a church, do you? No Next hour Godfather, Bill Nicholas coming by. He's out of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Do you know that's the order in San Francisco? You cannot have any more than one person praying in a church at a time. Think about the church's You've been even the smaller churches. You've been in one person. At a time can be in the church. The entirety of her Now I get it. We're in a pandemic. It's the cove it I understand it. People are dying to 100,000. I get it. But what if this becomes a hearing and you bring in Lagoa or you bring in rushing or you bring in a barrette or you bring in whomever else it might be, and they sit there and the Republicans say So. What do you think about? Government shutdowns of a nebulous nature. What do you think about Executive order power, sending people who are infected with Cove it into nursing homes in New York, guaranteeing that at least 6000 or dead? See Roe versus Wade. Let's be honest. Let's be truly honest here for a second row versus Wade. Has has sort of created a decision point in people's minds. People know where they were that lays. They know where it lies, and people understand who are aware of how laws work. People are aware that if Roe vs Wade were struck down at the federal level, it would go back to the notion of states controlling the issue of abortion. That's what would happen, but that is a theoretical exercise. You don't see the Supreme Court taking up precedents, set cases and overturning them. I just you don't you don't see it. What you do need to see this thought along the lines off is your right as an American citizen to go to your job, your right to open your business that you own your right to not be shut down by Governor Cooper. Or Gavin Newsom, Er, Cuomo or de Blasio. We need to find out from these judges. Where do you stand on the issue of riotous behaviour permitted in Portland and Seattle and New York and Chicago. But but when it comes to you go into your Your nursery That's not allowed. You've gotta wear a mask while we're dictating that you wear a mask in your own home. Why were dictating that you wear a mask in your own home while you're asleep and in the shower? Yes, Yes, I'm exaggerating. Don't get all breathy. Don't get all worried. But you see the the folks that want to have this fight. They'll have a fight about personal liberties. And your honor. You gotta mobilize those folks in blue states under the tyrants that run them. And and say, Listen, Listen, folks, let's get this thing hashed out out in the open. So where do you feel about ongoing running quarantines that don't have any end in sight. And oh, while we're at it, Your Honor, can you weigh in for just a quick second on whether or not the president has the legal authority to shut down travel from Europe and China? 704570 11 10 74 57 11 10.

First night of Democratic National Convention Round-Up

WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch

07:37 min | Last month

First night of Democratic National Convention Round-Up

"Democratic Party opened its quadrennial convention Monday night with two hours of virtual programming. was, a mix of speeches by high profile political figures, messages from ordinary Americans interview segments, news ICAL interludes. Kim Any any general impression that hit you from the first night. Well to General Impressions. The first is that we have now gone a completely to the point where conventions are what everyone feared they are, which is that they are giant infomercials you know, and that's been pretty obvious for a number of cycles that the business of conventions has become almost an afterthought and it's really about. Presenting these people in pitching for the party out there with the nation and that you're not having anything in per a person all you had was this long stream of folks talking that was very much like an extended again campaign commercials. So that was noticeable. I think that the other major impression is that Democrats are not going to be running. All on an agenda, this year anything to do with their policies for me. What I saw in this range of speakers talked they they spanned the entire Party spectrum but they all had the same themes which is at Donald. Trump is horrible. He has mismanaged the Cova crisis and his character is terrible and therefore this is a referendum on him. Starting with the first of those points, I? Mean it's been a long time since the last contested convention the last convention where delegates went in truly not knowing who the nominee was going to be though every four years it seems like political fanatics think this year could be the year but I agree with Kim bill that it was particularly obvious this year because of the format that there's really nothing going on except commercials here I mean, what do you make of the format? It was more of A. A A variety show in the typical convention, a short speech, and then you had a a soccer star interviewing health workers. There were quicker quicker cuts between segments. So maybe that's more engaging in a an attention span challenged age, but you sort of lose the energy of having a stadium full of people cheering their brains out. Yeah. Absolutely. Cut Look in fairness to them. This is something very new. You know they've had to improvise no one's done it before. So it's easy to make fun of them, but I think the problem is. It was pretty boring I felt as though I was watching a PBS telethon over some issue where various people would come on to lecture me about something and that's partly due to the format. You know when you go to a convention like you said, there's nothing like a room it's usually a stadium or a basketball arena full of cheering people you know gives you a lot of energy in all the it's all about fun and access you have people dressed up and crazy outfits, and so forth you know all completely partisan. Convention everyone's on the same side and the purposes to generate some enthusiasm I thought this was really odd. I without without Joe Biden, you know it's not. it's not typical to hear from the presidential nominee until the end, right. So that's but usually you see pictures of sitting in his seat with his family watching you know watching the proceedings cheering along at different people I thought of all the speakers. you know Muslim seem pretty angry I get that you know the campaign strategy is to blame Donald Trump for all the cova deaths and and that's the way they think their ticket is but I I don't think they have to be quite as angry because anger to me doesn't denote confidence and I think Joe Biden would be better to be a little more cheerful and the the people like that around and to be the Joe Biden that debated Paul Ryan. For example and I think did very well I'm not sure we saw that last night even Michelle. Obama you know she talked about going high but then sort of implied that people who disagreed with their did. So because she were as she was African, American I didn't really think that was a high note whereas Amy Klobuchar who got no attention I thought she gave a good convention speech was witty. It was cheerful and it was confident. But of course, no one. Really spoke of her contribution Kim. What else is missing this year if you've been to these conventions, many listeners probably haven't. They used to experiencing is just the big speeches on TV with lots of applause of lots of canned jokes can lines what what's the experience like being there that that's missing this year. A couple of things you know the real merit of a of a convention for both parties is that it's a great big party in the biggest sense of the word is the one time. Every four years were every political figure up ballot in down ballot in the party is all present in one place and so it's is a great opportunity. Especially, if you're a member of the media you would traditionally go out and you just bump into these folks and they have some interesting idea or something and you you end up writing about it, getting it, and so it's a place where. You get really get your hands on the mood within the Party and the issues and the ideas that are driving the party and the Internet rivalries. If there are any just not getting that this year and as a result it, I think the entire media coverage of the convention is is pretty hand because it's essentially about this lineup of speakers and you've missed any of the impromptu aspects of a convention that come from people being together. I think the other thing is that it also allows the party and this is a a detriment in my mind to the American public. It is allowed the party at least Democrats to to squelch any dissent or at least any public displays of stent. Usually when you go to these events, there are dissenters within the party they go down on the floor during the the discussions about the platform and they they disagree that this was in there that was in there Democrats went to A. Lot of effort to make sure that wasn't a theme that nothing like that could happen at this event and it would be hard to anyway because of the way of the format but Tom Perez, for instance, had the entire platform button-down and so for instance, nobody saw the fact that representative Rashida Labe who's one of the squad? She's a Democrat from Michigan. Voted no on the democratic platform on Saturday. As she was casting her vote from the DNC ballot because it didn't include a plan for single payer healthcare and if that kind of fight had happened in person at a convention, there might have been some legs to it. You might have had more of the progressives revolting but because all of this is being managed over zoom and and they know that there isn't much an opportunity to to to really get a movement going most people have just you know saluted and voted for the things that the party told him to vote for. So you're not seeing the traditional floor fights.

I don't think this is one of those situations where sexism is to blame This aid was also female and they told buzzfeed if it were a man doing these things that story should be written and that is a common refrain among the complaint. You read about amy. An awful lot of her former employees. Don't just think she was mean. They think her meanness is significant enough. That voters desperately need to know about it or they consider voting for her last. Sorry it's tough. It's tough because it's an easy line of complaint that can be skewed as being sexist but it's also sounds like a true thing you know and so we have to be to talk about it and that's coming from here yeah. I'm not judgmental of a mean of believe a female boss can be tough without like being criticized for it. Sophie regularly Throws things at me. goes into rages with machetes career. Prince the only thing I throw at you is love and respect robbers drew. That's true. That's true and frustration sometimes and just to that also. I'm alright this appointment less February the Huffington Post reported based on multiple interviews. That back in two thousand fifteen senate minority leader Harry. Reid had to sit down with Amy Klobuchar privately and tell her to change her behavior towards her staff living. Amy Klobuchar Lecture Lecture. Tom Jerry I perfect Katie. The HUFFINGTON post reached out to Harry Reid to ask him about this and the write up of his response is pretty hilarious. Yeah giving give it to me. A spokesman for Reid said the retired. Senator prefers not to discuss private conversations. He had with other senators. In this case. Read also does not remember whether or not he had this discussion with global Earth spokesman said Senator Klobuchar is one of the most brilliant hardest working members of the Senate and I was glad to serve alongside or said read. She's tireless when it comes to fighting for the people of Minnesota in the country and that's why she's such a popular senator back home and among her colleagues. You'll notice that. This is not a denial really not a lot of work. But didn't I prefer not to comment but also I remember but also she's pool cool but also please. Don't tell her that I said any bad now. The HUFFINGTON Post also reported on a leaked document. They found an eight page memo written by several of club jars AIDS during her first Senate run in two thousand six and the whole memo is basically them talking about how to manage their bosses temper. And I'm going to read it. Try especially while in the car during a busy day. If she is all caps extremely upset about something let her rant through it all caps. Don't interrupt her unless all caps absolutely necessary and be careful when trying to calm her down often she'd need just needs to talk things out the open and is not interested in other people's opinions. This is something that you will become used to adjust to. It's just a note for the first time this happens so we them leaked audio. Yeah yeah that sounds. That would be fun. As a Senator Club charts paid parental leave policy has attracted some attention to people familiar with. It told The New York Times that anyone going on paid leave was required among return to spend three times as many weeks in the office as agent gone. That's not great. Yeah employees who left without making up this time required to pay back money paid leave. Who's washed youthful? I have to note that when questioned about this by the time Senator Klobuchar Office issued a flat denial we offer twelve weeks paid maternity and paternity leave for our staff and have one of the strongest pay policies. In the Senate said a spokeswoman Alana Ross we've never made staff payback any of their leave. We'll be changing that language. In the handbook she declined to provide a copy of the current policy is written so it's hard to know like what actually went down because you're saying like there's some language there that at least made people think they had to pay back any of their leave and you won't show it so. I feel like you're being weasley button. Seems like a terrible political choice and I mean for anybody to have that policy but especially for a other herself a Democrat. Yeah all the things. The most important thing to understand about the allegations of meanness on behalf of Amy Klobuchar. Is that these. These allegations are not opportunistic attacks on a presidential candidate numerous individuals dozens and dozens of people at this point have made the same very consistent claims about amy as a boss for more than ten years. So this is not just because she's running for president. This goes back a longtime. Yeah I mean even when she was cast cuter. Yeah just forever. We're about to talk about that. Oh ooh in two thousand six. Amy was the county attorney for Hinton County Minnesota when she decided to leave that job to run for Senate. The local chapter of the Union that represented her employees The American Federation of State County and municipal employees wrote a letter to the union leadership. Begging them not to endorse amy for the Senate. The letter was signed by the President of the local chapter and contains reports from a number of members. It claims that.

"You kidding me. People still support him. Yeah I like. I like to introduce her. It's Amy Khloe. That's pretty good from from the stuff. No so if he's not having not faking her haret fine mouth agape unimpressed unimpressed. Although I mentioned last week that I am moving and so I kind of step back with the boys do most of the heavy lifting on this one. But I'm going to start off by talking a little bit about Amy's early life now with Warren. It felt really important to go over that stuff and so much of her early life has informed. Her platform in her story is an integral part of her campaign. Less so with amy still good jumping-off blink getting to know her She was born in Plymouth. Minnesota nineteen sixty. Mom was a second grade teacher. Dad was an author sports writer. Columnist excetera Her parents divorced when. Amuse fifteen and she had like a really bad relationship with her dad. He was an alcoholic and she really didn't talk with her father for a long time. I guess where that famous Cavanaugh Exchange comes from okay. Drinking is one thing but the concern is about truthfulness and in your written testimony you said. Sometimes you had too many drinks. Was there ever a time when you drink so much that you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before? I know I remember what happened. And I think you've probably had beers center and and so you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much. Didn't remember what happened the night before or part of what happened. It's you're asking about blackout. I don't know have you. Could you answer the question? Judge it just to you. That's not happened. Is that your answer? Yeah and I'm curious if you have. I have no drinking problem nor do I thank you say started my last Colloquy by saying to Santa Colomba. Char how much I respect her and respected what she did the last hearing and she asked me a question at the end that I responded by asking her a question. I didn't sorry I did that. This is tough process. Some sorry about that. I appreciate that I would like to add when you have a parent that alcoholic. You're pretty careful about drinking. And and the second thing is I was truly just trying to get to the bottom of the facts and the evidence and I again believe we do that by opening up the FBI. Investigation and I would call it. A background check instead of investigation. Thank you but then. She finally reconnected with her father after he got sober in the nineties okay. That's a little bit about her backstory. Again I don't know how that informs much of her platform except for how she questioned kavanagh of cooking and she's a tough cookie. Amy is a graduate of Yale University and then the University of Chicago Law School after law school closure worked as a corporate lawyer. She was a partner at the Minnesota law firms. Dorsey and Whitney and then gray plant Muti Where she specialized in quote regulatory work in Telecommunications Law. Okay this is interesting before seeking public office. Her first little dip into politics came after she gave birth. I guess when her daughter was born she was forced to leave the hospital. Twenty four hours later even though her daughter had been born with this rare disorder that prevented her from swallowing. They got kicked out and then it was like an insurance thing. Yeah I mean there's no protection for for young mothers in these situations But anyway that experience led her to appear before the Minnesota state legislature and advocating for a bill that would guarantee new mothers a forty eight hour. Hospital stay And then Minnesota passed the bill and later on Bill Clinton made that policy federal law up. So that's pretty cool. Cool sweet. Amy Talks a lot about how she hasn't lost a race but she did enter a race in the drop out of a race for the Hennepin county attorney but anyway she dropped out because the guy that had been the attorney decided he was going to run also two she won but she ran unopposed. So there's that but then eventually closure was elected Hennepin county attorney nineteen ninety eight was reelected in two thousand and two with no opposition Hennepin Minnesota's most populated county and. She was responsible for all of its criminal prosecution and you guys might be surprised about this but her of the public attorney is riddled with the put. This controversy as we should probably talk about traverses. Now are you telling me that a Democratic candidate in the two thousand twenty election has a bunch of controversies attached to their past. No no no no. It's a cloak traverses traverses While we're on that subject our research document for this cone klobuchar notes Nobu Charts. That's pretty good L. Continue Katie can radical. I think cody's go into this a little bit more but one thing about her. Time is as the attorney in that county Was that her office. Didn't prosecute any of the more than two dozen killings by police officers in the county in the eight years that she was in charge. So that's cool again. Cody some of this on my leave that to him to cover but real quick. I wanted mention this as well A report from the Associated Press last month revealed among other things that a big case she had prosecuted and campaigned on As showing her to be tough on crime it turns out. It has several very alarming problems. This is the case of Mayan Burrell black teenager who was accused of fatally shooting an eleven year old girl and any helped land him. Life sentence So this API report reveals that. Apparently the police had offered witnesses. Money in exchange for names had failed to pursue leads. That could have exonerated people that they railroaded for information at the time has since recanted. You know that kind of thing This is a quote from the AP. The case relied heavily on a teen rival of Burrell's who gave conflicting accounts when identifying the shooter who was largely obscured behind a wall one hundred twenty feet away. There was no gun fingerprints or DNA alibis. Were never seriously pursued key. Evidence has gone missing was never obtained including a convenience store surveillance. Tape that Burrell and others say would have cleared him another quote his co-defendants meanwhile meanwhile have admitted their part and Tisha 's death Burrell they say was not even they're also apparently one of the other co-defendants the people that they you know gotten into say that they were there and gave testimony Was a man named Mike Tyson. Not Mike this is serious. But that's the next line is really important I has since insisted he was the guy that shot the girl but the police reviews to believe him because he had a contradictory statement at the beginning. You know he was trying to not get in trouble And now he feels guilty about having killed an innocent girl and sending an innocent man to prison for life quote. I already shot an innocent girl now in engines guy at the time he was a kid is locked up for something he didn't do so it's like. I'm carrying two burdens and of quote. Any put that guy in prison looking. She prosecuted his. I guess there was two trials. She prosecuted the first one. Not The second one but the first one got him life in prison. I mean some of this comes down to the fact that like you really can't be a good person and a prosecutor in our modern system. I can't think of any who don't have something nightmarish somewhere in their background. And Yeah that's an issue that that's a that's that's not a normal level of bad about it as though their career path but yeah. I'm really bad example. She her campaign was was asked for comment. Mckay's recently and a spokesperson says. Burrell was tried and convicted of murder twice. The second trial occurred when cliche. I was no longer there. Hennepin county attorney if there was new evidence that should be immediately reviewed by the court. You Know Amy Klobuchar Charlotte of talking around the issue. Maybe Amy Klobuchar. Are you going to address the actual point amy? Klobuchar shouldn't have done that. Yeah pass the buck nope anyway. So that was a story I really wanted to share cody. I know that you've got some more about her time as the attorney. Yeah this is county attorney. This is a good contrast to And the police shootings and stuff So Yeah Amy Paul Montgomery Club. Hr was the Hennepin county attorney as a K. described She was also the president of the Minnesota County Attorney's Association from November two thousand to thousand three as outlined in the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees Union letter. Her employees say that she treated them poorly during her tenure. We're we're GONNA care too but I just wanted to make a note of that offering. How often it pops up exactly razz. County Attorney Amy prosecuted the possession of Kat K. H. A. T. Your car got caught. Yeah she prosecuted this possession of amongst Somali immigrants cuts a stimulant similar to Will actually come back to that. In a moment. But first a brief bit about Minnesota Specifically Minneapolis Saint Paul twin cities area it has the largest. Somali diaspora population in America. It's more than seventy four thousand people. the immigration started in the eighty S. It increased in the nineties due to the Somalian. Civil War Example of one of those more than seventy four thousand people is Somalian refugee and US congresswoman. Ileana Walmart her district makes up eastern Hennepin County Jackie move there just a few years before which are became county attorney. I'm just a little context about the area. The population that's there a lot of refugees And a little congress buddy to Congress in the congress very much really really aligned in friends and stuff anyway so Back to cut. It is a stimulant similar to chewing tobacco has affects described as a mild high or buzz similar to strong coffee. It can pinch yeah. It can potentially create psychological dependency and has some minor health risks like sleep problems. Increased blood pressure again like coffee. I would say it's less toxic for you than chewing tobacco worse for you than coffee. Yes that that. Like the if you're looking to place it. Roughly Yeah. It's wrong strong coffee. The World Health Organization. It's a little K- carcinogenic is kind of the big difference between it and the coffee are some consequences. But it's not really you'd be a very silly person to make a big deal out of it. You would be very silly to make a big deal about exactly. It's possible own. Nice Hasso thank you thank you. Yes so the organization. It doesn't consider it seriously. Addictive or harmful. It's actually to your point. It's actually less addictive than tobacco or alcohol. Y- despite all of this it is illegal in the United States. It's also illegal in Canada Germany and the UK we're GONNA of come back to you can't a bit It's legal and sold. In many other. Countries like Kenya. Ethiopia Israel Somalia though it is some level of controlled substance in most European countries like I said UK. They made it illegal in two thousand fourteen. And we're getting a little far away from Aa. But Amy but I think this story is interesting so there was a there was a bit of a moral panic about caught in the UK in the early two thousands Specifically there was concern about its use by immigrants from Somalia Yemen and There wasn't a lot of evidence of its dangers. So the Home Office commissioned a bunch of research which was presented in a report to the Advisory Council on the misuse of drugs which decided to keep it legal on account of it being basically fine noting the use was moderates and it was largely as a social activity but a couple of years later the Conservative Party announced it would quote tackle unacceptable cultural practices And that included the use of cot so in two thousand thirteen. The Advisory Council on the misuse of drugs released another report about how there was no evidence that it was harmful or addictive or directly linked to crime six months. Later Theresa May bandit so just some context here taught it if you're really looking at where it's legal or illegal. It's a cultural thing. It's a social activity attorney Rene Clemson noted During some of this that the county has spent so much time money and effort on what is a social gathering in the Somali community like meeting for a cup of coffee. It's a cultural thing. So back to Minneapolis. Okay Amy Klobuchar became the county attorney and Ilan Omar. I don't know she's learning to drive at the time. Something like that. Amy Klobuchar Shit Turney. Nah Okay that's not. The important thing is that we never give up with this. Ever You keep me give up and ABS- ABS- absolutely charred absolute JR absolute judge. Okay I mean come on all right all right so so a cop. Prosecutions were were at the time when amy started. Because it wasn't considered much of a problem as we've discussed this because it's fine because it's fine but Klobuchar decided to prosecute people using cots and she defended her aggressive enforcement by saying this is an illegal drug in our country. It is our job to prosecute the cases. This just seems so much like reminds me of the commerce stuff too. It's like picking something that is popular enough that you can say. Look tough on crime. Look I'm tough. I'm Matt Immigrant. Crime too yeah though although she did claim that cod is not limited to use by Somalis. Which I don't know if you've been listening but it's mostly used them which means that they're the most likely to be prosecuted for her other justification was that Caught can cause paranoia and hallucinations. Which is true for those genetically predisposed to psychosis which is true of those who use too much caffeine also. It's the same thing with like marijuana or with mushrooms..

"Talk vowed other blind spots Sarah weaknesses that Eric has as we all know. It takes a while in every campaign cycle for candidate to become a finished product. You know she's talking about the basic issues issues talking about medical care. She's talking about wages She's talking about bread and butter issues for people. These messages will translate. They will play. They will travel. I think what some people are. Oh saying is that she needs to be able to weave the together in a story that has a slightly higher level rhetoric. Vision the vision and I think you call a vision. Sometimes I call it a campaign the melody you see I mean her. Her factual presentation is indisputable. She's she's very solid midwestern person very appealing but she does need sort of a higher melody I think. More from our deliberations after a quick break to kill a mockingbird is unmissable and unforgettable raves rolling Stone Five Stars The New York Times declared declared it a critic's pick calling Aaron Sorkin new play beautiful elegiac satisfying even exhilarating a mockingbird for our moment. Sixty minutes says it's the most successful American play in Broadway history. A New York magazine calls it a real phenomenon. Ed Harris Atticus Finch in Harper. Lee's to kill a mockingbird directed acted by Bartlett sheer tickets at telecharge dot com. Welcome back the choice and one of the things that I was very impressed with her is that she talks about these issues. In a way that people can relate to their lived experiences so for example on climate change you hear a her talk about the flooding in Iowa or other places in a way where people can really relate immediately the policies that. She's putting on the table to what they themselves have experienced. Yes it's true and you know as the person who travels back and forth quite a bit myself I do see that But it we're just trying to. How how does she will will take for her to break through? It's what I'm thinking. I think what of the other issues that she is. Ben Then played with has been the reporting around the fact that she has the highest senate turnover rate. You know that gives me pause because you want. The next president is to be able to surround themselves with really talented people and if she has that reputation if she doesn't treat her staff well will talented people want to work for her. What do you make of that would well? I have to tell you. Whenever I hear a temperament problem I always subtract some of the complaint from gender through gender? Always take agenda question right off the top of that Because a lot of people who would put up with behavioral for men quite. It's Nice Lee and I think of it as aggressive. hard-driving tend to think of women as shrill they exhibit the same behavior the turnover statistics You know are potentially really troubling. But I remember when we when she was here. We discussed it and she said listen. A lot of my staff goes on. Take my staff go on to great things. I drive them hard. But I choose people who don't stay with me because they go onto greater things And I as a colleague David Leonhardt said. Recently that he reminded as does she reminds him a little bit of Harry. Truman which is also sort of a very blunt guy No nonsense guy. Who turned out to be quite ineffective president? The central case for the senator seems to be and the case. I think she's been making to the country. Entry is that the crisis the political crisis can be met with an adult in the room and some moderation and mid Western view and Sensibility. And listen. I think that's a very it's worth taking seriously. I don't know whether anybody knows if that's actually enough off. If any of these Democrats are elected what they're promising would make them the most progressive president event in American history. I often think of her as the person who might actually be able to get that done because of her effectiveness in passing. Bipartisan Bills Calls in Congress but she does have a little bit of a tendency to name off those bills to talk through the legislation and and make herself seem team a little bit like a DC creature. Do you think that that would go away. As she moved away from Congress. I think of that. This is in the realm of rhetorical problems. I think this it is possible to solve this problem by simply learning to speak week differently. About what you're trying to do as a person who's on the floor Anderson and a three terms a successful three term senator. She is likely to be engaged in the nuts. Awesome Bolts of the Senate itself but even as the campaign on foes she should be able to pull back from that. I'm sure she's getting that input now she should be able to pull back back from that and to take a slightly broader rhetorical scope. I think it's mainly just a rhetorical problem. Thank you so much for doing this friend. Thank you for having me all right. That's it for senator. Come back on Monday to hear the board teach South Bend Mayor People to judge about. Just what the Mayo Pete..

"So Brent. What are your impressions of Senator Klobuchar? I was surprised at how much I I liked her When we met in person because I think her the charisma the midwestern calm charisma that she has didn't come through in the debates? The in person you get a sense of a real sense of a solid committed person with some basic ideas that she knows how to present industry forward forward away and I spent a lot of time in the mid Western highway and our neighboring state in the next two Minnesota So her way of speaking uh-huh resonates deeply with me. Yeah you and I are both not from the Midwest but we have a lot of family there and so I think that midwestern affect really comes through with her I I mean how does that compare to for instance Mayor Pete. I see Mayor Pete as he is. The young guy in the campaign and his appeal is is primarily his US in the context of a field. It's really tilted toward Octogenarian almost you know And he has a similar kind of affect. When you meet him? You can identify him as midwestern it. It doesn't have teeth to sort of soaring. Rhetoric is not there but you get a sense of basics with him to do you think being from a state like Minnesota is a boon in this particular election mirror. I do I think that For a woman like club. I can't closure three times senator Off from this from the solid midwest state who plays well in conservative areas plays well with Labour's plays well with miners and steel workers workers and those kinds of people I think that's very. It's a very translatable skill One of the one of the mysteries of campaigning is why a person that it has so many features so many desirable features doesn't break through But I have to tell you I have been looking for her to break through in her neighboring stayed in Iowa because she has the kind of communication skills and the midwestern personnel that on paper should play big there so that's so as translatable to the Midwest and she's she's she's made that point very effectively that in fact she wins in a on on the Dakota side. She wins on the highway side. She wins in the hiring range as powerful record Yeah I agree with you although one of the questions I think that is still very open is how well she'll do with communities of color. Well I think that's We gotta remember that. The communities of color are particularly Prime Matic people in we think back to two thousand eight. How people in South Carolina in the south in the in the in the black belt and south where hearing toward Hillary Clinton as opposed to Obama until he won Iowa? You know that picture could change very quickly depending on how the election plays out because the people begin to focus more as you become more plausible in South Carolina Alabama became plausible after after black people in South Carolina. saw that white people and high.

"Longest tenured. Board member Mr Brent Staples My name is Brent Staples I write about politics. This culture economic race history the whole range of things New York Times editorial board before we go all midwest on you. Let's listen to what the board thought of Senator Kosher so if you go through kind of categories she obviously has more experience than all these guys. She also has the details but she didn't go into all she knows how the levers work she knows. What livers are at her disposal? She knows how to talk about it. She knew how to address specific policies. She has kind of an ideological theme team which is beyond the pipedream. Planning bring people with you. You can't just go in and hammer people. You have to kind of build momentum anthem. She has the cultural argument with the Mid West and she knows how to take the plainspoken steps. You're not thinking so what she is. Short on is charisma and the inspiration which is speaking a little bit to kind of the early poll numbers but as far as a lot of categories go. She has a clearer. Plus I. It's clear to see what she standing for than some of them but the point She may have a certain type of charisma. Azuma in her straightforwardness to people in which then maybe that will come out as this goes along because as she rightly notes. When you're dealing with three hundred hundred fifty people on stage at any point she saves all sodas or flashiest? Also I could see the latent you can see the late and feature of one is time she will go for the Jug. Yeah Yeah you can see. That's what surprised me is like. I liked her more than I expected to and felt that more than I expected to. I felt like I could see her on a debate. Stage with trump holding her own. And when I've watched her in the bigger debates I did not feel that I mean she plays more like a governor. Yes what other. I think we saw strengths with her. You know this to me I must tell you is from where I'm sitting. A kind of charisma you know Basic basic sort of like utilitarian you know cut the difference get it done And you know the delusion to the Union I mean to the iron belt and everything telling you. That's that's a good credit to have. You've really gets interesting. You'd say she played like a government actually at a very different impression of her that she played like a legislator constant process constantly saying saying that the key is to create a legislative package. I think those are important skills. Actually don't know exactly where I come down on this. But another version of a president is that that's the person articulates a strong vision and tries to inspire people and to lead people in that direction and knows where they want to go and disabled to accomplish something by virtue of that. And so I do worry a little bit about this mentality of basically like we need to talk to everyone and figure out what everyone wants. And then we'll put together a compromise. It feels to me like that is definitely how you are effective in Congress I. I wonder if she was sitting here. She'd say I've already said I'm going to do one hundred thanks. There's not a lot of that is going to reverse. What trump did yesterday? It's not that impressive things on the list but you know what L. at Charlie jump in here. I thought one one issue that spoke to a lot of this it was interesting to me was talking about guns and then talking about the failures and the failures and failures and then the Parkland kids but also in with her sort of like moderate type of position Shen the Parkland kids like very radical like the situation. It was very like there's no tolerance for this. It was like it felt kinda different and she kept talking about the failures of that sort of like consensus tried to work with everyone approach. And then there's this outrage from this other side and I and I don't know I I felt the same way that I was very really overwhelmed by all like the bill name-dropping And I didn't feel that sense of charisma Like I didn't feel that sense of. I felt that sense of leadership in technocratic adequate but not in a not in a I didn't feel it in the room the way I felt with other candidates. I think she's selling stability. which is something that given? Given the trump era a lot of Americans want right like a lot of people want stability again. I agree with you. I think that does resonate with older voters more than it resonates with younger voters but I agree with you. I mean I think that that one of the reasons that we didn't have to ask her repeatedly about Mitch. McConnell Senate is because she's a plan for that and that was clear in the first few few minutes of talking but everyone has said this several times. She doesn't inspire you the same way you note. Note is the urgency there. Yeah well I think I was at Warren who came in and said well listen. My fear is not going to get everything done but at least I've aimed here and so where do you WanNa start negotiating point. Yes I agree with you. I I also think that like to go back to Janine said I do think some of her plans are bolder than they seem on paper. Because I you know we have gotten to the point where we hear people like Bernie Bernie End Elizabeth Warren and others Talking in such sweeping terms that Even some of the plans that she has which would be extremely move the country forward in important ways I mean particularly around adoption and people forget to drop it from the affordable care act and now we take it for granted like Oh. That's like the week sauce. Relatives offering progress at the debate has moved that far but that doesn't mean that public option isn't actually a huge leap forward and wouldn't be a strenuous left at would. That was a lot of good here. Yeah there's a lot of good here and I want to applaud the focus on home health care workers. I think is correct diagnosis. And the correct frame for dealing.

"Protests and you've got to allow for these protests in you've gotta push on on civil liberties for people but again I think the best way is to stand with allies something. This president has refused to so many times anytime. There's a choice waist and a moment where he can choose. He stands with dictators over allies or tyrants over innocence he gets us out of these international agreements. And I'm going to give a speech on this at the Foreign Relations Council about some of my ideas about our reasserting American leadership rejoining These international agreements. And do you feel comfortable with the United States. Having nuclear weapons in southern Turkey at this point given wants behavior where I think that we should not push Turkey out of NATO so right now but instead be pushing them. I strongly disagreed with the president's decision to withdraw the one hundred fifty troops from from Syria on the border And everything that has happened after that is really actually quite predictable including the Initial shoul slaughter of occurred to stood with us who you know. We'd promised all these things to and then when they fought on our side and lost like eleven one thousand people. We don't stand up for him so I think that we would want to still keep those strategic nuclear weapons there but it's all the more reason THAT WE WANNA keep deep pushing Turkey and and working with Turkey but at the same time. I don't think we want to give up that Foothold right. There and president trump has made made several unilateral moves in relations to Israel Things like moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. If you took over would you reverse them. As president I am a strong supporter of Israel is still see it as our beacon of democracy in the mid East But I have been I'm horrified by some of the things that trump has done with has eroded support for Israel in the United States And I think has a lessen their security position I would not reverse the embassy change because I've always supported having the embassy there But I do think that some of the things that he did recently When the administration said that the settlements were not against international international law that is in violation of longstanding American policy? And if we truly want to Build support for this democracy. He than we have to restart these negotiations for a two state solution. Which I would do when I went to Israel with a number of senators as I went only it was just me and one of their senator? That did this and met with the Palestinians I think that their economic futures important and I would push for two state solution. I will say that I also have voted for see my record for funding for Israel's security. I still think that they are in a really tough neighborhood. And a really really dangerous position and made worse by what trump just did with Syria because now Iran has a foothold there And so one of the things I that I see as this Really high stakes opportunity for a new president is to bring in American support again in a big wait for Israel. And you do that by stopping these Mitch. McConnell divisive votes Making it a wedge issue trying to play politics Instead of looking at what. The challenges are ahead I think that we need to emphasize Israel's historic support for women's rights Working on climate change all of these things that have been lost because of trump's continual effort to use this as a partisan pawn maybe the worst moment of which was when when he tried to when he pushed the prime minister. Who spent all part of this as well to stop to members of Congress from visiting back in May senator Released an extremely ambitious one hundred billion dollar plan to combat drug and alcohol addiction and improve mental healthcare American aircon rates a desk of despair meaning deaths related to overdoses alcohol associated liver cirrhosis and suicides have more than doubled in the past twenty years driven largely by the OPIOID crisis. Senator Klobuchar has spoken about her father's own struggle with alcohol as an inspiration for her solution to this growing problem. You've around one hundred billion dollar plan to address the OPIOID crisis. You talk about with respect to paying for that. One of the things you've called for is a master opioid settlement. Can you talk about how you you would ensure that that money gets put to the right use with a global tobacco settlement for example. We saw a lot of the money got diverted to up state budgets. How do you prevent that from happy? I think you just I just have to across the teased out the Really clear directive and have a president that maybe worked in law for fourteen years Would be the helpful thing Because I know exactly what you're talking about with the tobacco settlement So how I paid for the hundred billion was the eighteen billion closing. The Hedge Fund Lupul pull Was Fourteen it's gone up to eighteen the score. On hundred forty billion from this master settlement which is for opioids or. It's but there's no reason you couldn't use it which hasn't been initiated yet right helpless but if you're the president in these lawsuits are still going on. And you direct your Justice Department armament to make this a major priority and there's so much abuse and there's record evidence of business people at these Pharma companies. Say Oh keep pumping him out. It's like the re does and giving them cruises for incentives. I mean it's an outrageous situation and it was prioritized. Great so you would so this forty billion that then the forty billion from two cents per milligram. VN opioids which The governor here you did I think in New York Anyway I've laid out one hundred billion dollars and I think you have to make this a big party. Bipartisan support support. For this Senator Portman and I and at the time Kellyanne and Sheldon Whitehouse led the initial opioid. Blueprint Bell And I I've done a lot of work in this area. Let's say you get the money. How do you decide which programs to fund? There's been a lot of malfeasance addicted I am. I am pretty obsessed with this of trying to figure out for instance suboxone and is it really working on. This is the drug that you give people to get them off of openness much standard have care now it is it is it was developed. Actually these two doctors in an emergency room in Minnesota who were young and they were on call and they went back and looked fell the records and figure it Out Half the people had no reason to have opioids and that half their town. That's an exaggeration was addicted and they actually developed this treatment method because they didn't really have the facilities acivities to do it from little falls Minnesota so it is a good thing and it helps a lot but there may be other treatments that we should be doing. And there's one other thing. I want to stress here. Is that math crack cocaine. These other drugs especially crack cocaine is still a big addiction and communities of color. Alcoholism is is still there so I think it's really important that the master settlement be used for all forms of addiction. Many of these treatment places. They are not opioids. Only and you're really ripping ripping off certain parts of the country if you don't always if you don't also include them in treatment and then I of course include mental health because it's the only way we're going to get the funding To help with mental health when we've had thirty percent increase in suicides in fifteen years have one final question for you. I'm going to turn to my colleague. Chris what would you fail at as President I am. I like to go out on a limb on a lot of things but I can't predict that I can't predict what I'll fail at because because I am an optimistic yourself you know yourself okay I would fail it not getting enough sleep but you don't want to have that to be too intense or it'll affect your performance I would Fail at probably not balancing everything. I need to balance with my family which I try my best on. I just I don't know because you don't know what's in front of you but what I do know that You learn a lot. When you've had the experiences I have fourteen ears in the private sector and then Eight years managing a local of a local official managing an office of a bunch of lawyers lawyers and doing a good job on it I will I will tell you and then going to the US Senate and being there through three different presidents Being there through that economic Emma crisis and repeatedly when I have been in charge of things whether alone back there in Minnesota or as part of a group I have shown what I I think is a really important quality right now. Which is grace under pressure And I have shown that I can build the trust of people no matter what political party there in at some point I oh I think given that I don't have thirty one million dollars for an ad by right now But I am rising in the polls in In Iowa and some New Hampshire sure I feel like saying maybe people should just get job references from the five million people in my state. They won't all have voted for me But they at least know that I am hard worker that I have people's back that I do the right thing And I think that what you succeed in is much more important right now when we have a president that has failed us so many times times to stress. The optimistic economic agenda to stand your ground When you must and as I run against someone like him to ignore room are when you can But to make clear that when he does really bad things that you call them on it which I've done my entire time in the Senate And yes to even use some humor against this guy because what he does is absurd. I think that's how you beat him. But I think how you beat him is going to directly affect how we cover because if if you just eat by a victory at four in the morning with one St We're not GONNA be able to take on these big challenges we spend all this time talking about. We are not and if you are someone that comes in. That's dividing people. We are not going to be able to govern and bring consensus back in this country and these ideas. I've laid out. I believe they're bold old ideas and we cannot afford to fail.

"Plan and the pipe dream mm-hmm because I'm being realistic about how we get things done. What are you could do a combination? You could do a renewable electricity standard. which by the way my bill? When I first got to the Senate it which after cap and trade went down the environmental groups came to me and said maybe we should look at this? But you could do that at the same time you do some kind of attacks. I believe this is going to be the armageddon issue That presidents can have to stand up for because these other ones I mentioned taking on the pharmaceutical companies. You're ready you've seen some Republican Republican cracks on that And I think they know they have to get this done. Our president really has to make this a line in the sand when it comes to negotiating and working with Congress. I think more importantly as to look at. What are the issues that we can push in this campaign to get people with US beyond the coast? We have to to start making the case to the people in the middle of the country. What does that look like? Raging fires like you've seen in Colorado and Arizona where those firefighters died. It is the weird weather events it's the wet cropland and making it impossible either harvest or plant. It is the doubling of homeowners insurance and argument that it's not made enough Across this country it is the floods that we saw this last year in places like Iowa and Nebraska and in Missouri and I think so much of what we have to do is talk about what this is really meaning right now. Two people tie that to the economics and how we can make this work and most importantly since everyone's plans are really quite similar. Maybe with the exception of Bernie's I think what we need to do is to make people understand that we're going to keep them whole and the only way as you know having covered this You do that is with a carbon tax or some kind of fee on carbon because then you can take that money. I think I estimate two trillion and our plan. You take that money and you plug it into a few things research and technology into this you plug it into incentivizing those new jobs in those areas that GonNa be hurt the most by this transition and it shouldn't just have to be green energy jobs and you do it by helping people with their bills and people who it's going to affect a how much it costs for them to get their energy. Why do I emphasize this emphasize? Because we're we're not gonNA pass it if we don't do that. That's the difference between some of the things you talked about. and Ca- certainly felt different than how we talked about cap and trade and also. Because I've I lived this on. My GRANDPA was an iron ore miner in northern Minnesota. Those minds would open and close. He'd have to go get a job logging and then they'd open again. I I live this. Those senator closure has been trailing behind others in the polls standout moments on the debate stage at the October debate for example. She he called out. Senator Elizabeth Warren Medicare for all and I appreciate Elizabeth's work but again The difference between a plan and a pipe dream is something that you you can actually get done so now with a nod to one of your more dramatic debate moments. What is the difference? Then between over many taste the difference between a plan and a pipe dream right so the difference between a plan and a pipe dream is that you can get something done that you have a plan plan for how you get it done but you also have the ability to get it done so maybe one of the reasons that some of my ideas are slightly different than my opponents is because I have factored that in and I've certainly factored it in in my hundred day plan which I think shouldn't be lost and I appreciated Your newspaper actually devoted some time to looking at it Several of my opponents have come up and said this was a really good idea It's over a hundred thirty seven things so these are not pipe dreams that you can do without Congress legally the other thing about the plan in the pipe dream so one of those reasons. Yes I led with. Those things is because that's going to be a way to make people feel were part of a country that's moving forward again other examples of that for me It means we're not just going to say things at sound good on a bumper sticker And some of these ideas have merit. Don't get me wrong but I also look at. What are you promising people if we actually can't get this done if we actually don't even have the support With a good chunk of our own political party So I look at things like like the college issue and there I think and this is a policy thing for me. How do we connect the education system? We have now which needs a lot of help through K.. Through twelve something near and dear to my heart. 'cause my mom taught second grade till she was seventy years old. How do we hook that up into our economy me and where the jobs are and what bothers me is if we have? We don't look at what the fastest growing jobs right now which are one and two year degree jobs. So we're not gonNA have a shortage of MBA's or CEO's we're going to have a shortage of plumbers We're GONNA have a shortage of home healthcare workers we're going to have over a million the in home. Healthcare workers open those jobs in the next ten years. Our we're going to have set one hundred and something thousand openings as for nurse assistants and we're going to have sixty four thousand job openings for plumbers and so how do you make sure that we are one paying people enough at the the dignity of work do these jobs but then also making sure education system is fitting with our economy. Where does that leave me to with the pipe dream and the plan? Well that that says okay. What's the best policy but also how can we get it done? Hook it in with the economy and so that's where I ended up with one and two year degrees free and then doubling the pell grants which would help very much with the students that need it the most expanding the income level from fifty to one hundred thousand and so that would give give a lot more help to the people that need it most not sending wealthy kids to college for free but instead making sure that we're helping the people that need it the most I would extend that into loan repayments So that yes you allow kids to refinance student loans. How multimillionaires to refinance a yacht? Maybe you should allow allows students to refinance loans. But you also fix that loan payback program. That Betsy Devos has so messed up. Why can't the richest country in world simply provide free higher education at public institutions? Even when you look at countries that do this more I think they try to match their economy with what their jobs are so I would. I would rephrase it in a different way then. Why can't the richest country in the world do this? I would say why can't one of the most advanced ends countries in the world figure out how to make our education system work for our students so that they are able to be functioning members of of our economy in a good way and are able to make a living. Because it's not just about what their degree is it's also about when they are doing the job that we need them to do like working in a nursing home or fixing. Someone's plumbing how do we make sure that they have enough to raise their family so I would just look at it differently. I don't think we should be telling everyone that they should get a four year degree. I think we should figure out what they WANNA do with their lives with some incentives for them. I'm to do things that work in our economy and getting more people into technology in science and nursing instead of sports marketing degrees And if you do that what you sure better make sure that they have a higher minimum wage which I strongly support you better. Make sure that they have childcare access. Even if they're in the GIG economy which which is about a third of our workers right now so I would phrase that question differently. I don't think this is about everyone affording going to every single college. I think this is about looking at our economy and making sure our workers are being able to have a high quality of life and raise a family with the jobs that we have available now finds. It's a question of where you spend the money to spend the money on everyone getting a four year degree when I think I should spend the money on child care and retirement chairman and helping people that are the home healthcare workers that we need as we look at the silver tsunami which I don't call it anymore. It's negative silver surge coming our way with a with the aging of our population. Your platform calls for one hundred actions in one hundred days mostly by executive order. We're living within an administration that has has used a lot of executive orders so far I want to read a statement that you said Four Years F. Donald trump new president can't wait for a bunch of congressional hearings. The act the urgent problems of our country our country is facing. Excuse me require immediate action. How is that an improvement over the status quo? Because he's been doing things that are legal Not only the subject of this impeachment hearing right now But also how they what they propose there against the law whether they're using Emergency Declaration to justify a wall or whether they are putting forth agency changes And one of the more interesting things. I haven't seen the latest numbers. But I think bookings put out. Comparing their administration to say Bush Administration Clinton Administration Obama. How many of their rules and regulations have been overturned it is worth looking at? It's an astronomical difference between the other agencies and the other presidencies who who are actually those administration's trying to obey the law. So you have someone. That has been blatantly flagrantly disobeying the law across the Board. So I wouldn't do that. I am a lawyer I'm on the Judiciary Committee. I believe strongly in the rule of law. So what we have put together Is A I consider smart group of ideas that you can do that are legal and that includes things like I mentioned the three climate change ideas that includes things like. Here's when you might not I guess Closing the boyfriend loophole for gun purchases. That's my bill right now. I lead that provision and Debbie Dingle single took Took it on in the house after and reduced the bill that is in the violence against women. Act It's what stopping that bill. And as President I could actually close that loop also also domestic abusers can't get AK forty sevens or any other kind of gun. I close that loophole on my own. That you can get a waiver for bringing in less expensive pensive drugs from other countries that is legal at the same time. Of course. You're starting up. I WANNA do big bills. I can't do immigration reform. With the exception of changing some of his policies also at the border without Congress. See you can do two things at once. I'm a mom so you can do these things you can do legally by rule and you must then start because I come in big consensus. We move quickly. You start doing these major priorities and getting.

"amy klobuchar" Discussed on Radio Atlantic

"This episode of Radio Atlantic is brought to you by. At and T. business my name is home feelings across industry expert helping hoping business leaders transfer ideas and concepts from one sector to another. I spoke to Brian Phillips the President and CEO of Fedex office to hear hear more about the same Brian. What inspired is innovation. What's missing is that thirty minute or less on on demand delivery when a customer has something that they need we can get it to them. Within minutes. Keep listening after the to hear more more about the technology behind the robot and its potential implications for the healthcare space and we're back the impeachment news happened just as this year's. Atlantic festival began again one year ago when the last Atlantic Festival took place another story focus the country's attention on DC the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Cavanaugh. We're we're underway and we were all talking about high school yearbooks calendars SC. We remember that the path that led to Amy Klobuchar running for president arguably began with those hearings things she had a breakout moment questioning the judge when she took a different tack from her colleagues Paul Okay. I'm not going to ask about the yearbook so most people have done some. I'm drinking in high school and college and many people even struggle with alcoholism and binge drinking my own dad struggled with alcoholism most of his his life and he got in trouble for it and there were consequences after a back and forth cabinet. There was this unforgettable moment. Okay drinking is one thing but the concern is about truthfulness and in your written testimony. You said sometimes you had too many drinks. was there ever a time when you drink. Thanks so much that you couldn't remember what happened or part of what happened the night before. I know I remember what happened and I think you've probably had beer center and and so you're saying there's never been a case where you drank so much that you didn't remember what happened. The night before are part of what happened. It's you're asking about blackout. I don't know have you. Could you answer the question. Judge just to you you. That's not happened is at your answer. Yeah and I'm curious if you have. I have no drinking nor do I okay thank you when she joined me on stage in Washington. I ask Club Charter. Think back to what that was like so. Let's go back to our conversation. Recorded live at the Atlantic Festival. Let me ask you. AH WE'RE COMING UP ON A year from the cabinet hearings. That was for a lot of people a moment where they saw you. Maybe for the first time or or in a different light it was this exchange that you had with the then judge future justice where he asked you you if you ever gotten so drunk that you didn't remember things and you responded in this very to me watching it on TV very raw moment What was that like. What what was that? was that couldn't have been planned. I know in fact I later roses here. Here's somewhere she was in our official office then and now she's a head of our policy on the campaign but I remember saying to her later in the day. Come on guys couldn't there. Oh she is you couldn't you couldn't predict that the nominee was going to ask me. If I blacked out come on we should practice but anyway it was a complete surprise is and what was surprising was that I had a different tone than a lot of my colleagues and I was actually trying to get at how you could have someone so credible. It's Dr Blasi Zi Ford and then you had him saying that it didn't happen so I asked him well. Maybe you were drinking so much back. Then which is my theory of the case that you blacked out and you don't remember and I explained that I had alcohol in my family. My Dad had three D. W. I.'s Walleye the whole time I was growing up and that you don't mess around with this stuff in my the end of my story by the way is he finally had to choose between jail L. in treatment he chose treatment and in his words he was pursued by grace which is why I'm so focused on treating alcoholism and drug addiction and other things and mental health and he was pursued by grace and it changes life and now he's ninety one years old and he's in assisted living and his. Aa Groups still visits him there and in his words. It's hard to get a drink around here anyway but the cat back to the cavenaugh thing is what was so raw about that moment was just. I was in shock that he was taking this partisan approach that didn't just bring in my mind him down except except for the audience of one in the White House but it didn't just bring him down it brought down the Supreme Court and all judges and so that was I had that split second to think well. I'm not going down with you. I am not gonNA act like this. No matter how rude you were to me I'm not gonNA act like this and my other thought was about really when you deal with alcoholics in your life like I'm taking the key away from you betty. I am not going to drive that car with you and so that's why I reacted that way and then he later apologized. I and I told them okay but when you have al calls them in your life that you know you take this really seriously I mean I don't have alcoholism in my life if but it seems to me there are other things that I have that are private in my life that I would not want to talk about in front of the country in the world you have brought that into your public life as a painful thing growing up as you mentioned yeah but it always was so my dad was a columnist for the newspaper paper and he covered the Vikings and was pretty well known until those. Dwi's rally in the newspaper so part of it was I felt okay talking about doubt it my whole life because he talked about it you know he talked about how he had struggled with alcoholism and to give me cause some every often very rarely people in a or or something come up and say. Should you really be talking about. I go well. You've read my Dad's book and so I guess it makes it a little bit. gave me the feeling like I could talk about. It and I also believe it's a leader just going beyond justice cavenaugh the we have an obligation. If you have stories raise like this in your life part of what you do when you lead is you make it so that people understand they're not alone and there's a reason you care about something while you. WanNa to get it done and then put out some ideas to get it done because there's so much distrust right now in our politics people just think with him in the White House House and with some of the other things in the gridlock as you point out going on in the US Senate they're just how can these people not do gun legislation. How how can they not do this so I think sharing truthful stories about yourself and is really part of being a leader and it's got to be connected with something. You're not just just doing it to just tell a story but for me. It's connected to my public life in two ways. Maybe three one is ahead. Try really hard to get to wherever I was The second is it's made me want to work on policies related to which I've done from the moment I got my first public job up through the Senate with the OPIOID crisis and and coming out with this very strong mental health proposal when one in five Americans have struggled with that but the third way which is more subtle is that when you have something harder in your your life and most people have something siblings. I'm one. It's harder just to see things in extremes. You have to see the grey areas because says if you don't you can't love that person and so that's how I was Gonna go immediately to my Republican. Colleagues seemed a little abrupt but you you you have to be able if you're going to be a good leader. You have to be able to find common ground and while you don't like them for some reason or you hate some of the policies that they espoused house. If there are some things you can work with them on you do that. including people within our own parties if they're rude to you or say something on TV you know there's another day you go on to fight another day and to work with them on other things and so. I think that is really shaped how I been as a senator and a legislator in a very very positive way and it's one of the reasons I passed over one hundred bills where I've been the lead Democrat and that's because I know people well enough and they trust me and I'm able to get things stanton. It seems like that's an an evolution of a process wanted to dwell for a moment on the the history of your father because I think it is interesting interesting that you had this.

"Committees are seeking the whistleblower complaint. Is You know there's going to be an open hearing tomorrow in the House with the Inspector General I think and the and then later in the afternoon Senator Warner Warner and Burr are having a closed door hearing with those same witnesses so there is this is just started in terms of this inquiry but I believe that what you can say is it fits a pattern and we have been making that case for a long time and people say well. Have you guys been doing a good enough job in getting the public to understand this. Let's not forget twenty two thousand eighteen election that was a major big check and balance on this guy we took back the House of Representatives and we took it back in large part because people people didn't trust having a House of Representatives. That weren't a check on this guy because they were so concerned. They're concerned about some of the fears that he wasn't coming going on promises when it comes to comes to the economy the trade war but they were also concerned about his tone about his flaunting of the law. I remember Eber visiting the Carter Library in Georgia when I did their democratic dinner a few years ago and I like Minnesota Geek was looking for Walter Mondale stuff off course and I walk in there the vice president to Jimmy Carter and I walk in there and I'm like where's Jones dress you know these things and I walking around and finally I see these words on the wall that were the words that Walter Mondale uttered after they lost and of course it wasn't a perfect administration but it was a moral administration ration- very much so and on the wall it said looking back at the four years we told the truth. We obeyed the law. We kept the peace. We told the truth. We obeyed the law. We kept the peace. That is the minimum that we should expect in a president of the United States. I asked Jimmy Carter about that line little bit about a year and a half ago whether your podcast he was on a previous podcast and another publication and and he was at that point a little evasive of whether he thought the president the president trump was holding to that. Let me ask about your campaign pain here. One of the things that is distinctive to me about your speeches the jokes that you we've in you. You've you've got the president. The what's different during the president in Greenland Greenland is not I not for sale. You're going to you're going to build a blue wall and you're going to make trump true though and we build the trump says he's. GonNa run as the government like its businesses right bankrupt casino go. Yes yes go on. You got ripped a little bit for this by the daily show joke that you told a lot about me laugh because I'll comedians have kind of a number of them of course have repeat performances on. They have a set so are the material I guess I often do do and I and but when you give political speeches it's really boring if you give the same speech but you often add new things for news of the day but you do keep some of the fundamentals of it or you would be not really having a cohesive message and so anyway they you're kidding. I thought I arrived when Trevor Noah did a whole video thing on me. Actually Kinda good it is it seems to me like one of the weird things and the adjustment of running for president that now every time that you're making a speech as a presidential candidate people are watching. I'm sure that there were lines and jokes that used when you were running for Senate on it and it was not a focus of the daily show or or others. What does that been like. You've you've been in public life for a long time and this is a year almost launched in February of running for president. That's a different thing and having a different level of scrutiny on you well. I think when you're in the Senate can you run Senate races these days you are used to a lot of scrutiny and you better be and the job. I had before that after running three before three Senate campaigns was that I was the. Da The county attorney and so that's huge scrutiny on cases and what you do and you have to explain to the public when you have to make a plea agreement or dismiss charges I mean that was a big part of my work and I always thought actually that was like day to day having to explain things and have crisis come in the door we had four hundred people is the biggest public law office in the state of Minnesota bigger than the Attorney General's office and so I think all of that prepared me for this. I think the difference on this one is that you are going all over the country and you are when you're someone and especially like me that likes to get to know people and go to every cafe in every county every year. You've just have to find different ways to communicate with people so that's that's the first thing and then the second part of it. Is You just have to Make sure you're true to yourself and you know part of me being back here this week was it's just everything that was happening and I wanted to be part of it. I think that's part of leadership and I have been true to myself. Since the day that I announced this presidency presidential campaign in the middle of a river. I'm the Mississippi River with four inches of snow on my head and the words words is there we are that we need to cross a river divides to get to a higher place of our politics and that this is about changing policy with bold ideas yes but the only way we're going to get there is if we not just win but we win bic and I got to make that point at the last debate that I am the candidate that from the very beginning ginning has been talking about not just are fired up base which is fired up in his so important but also bringing with US Independence Democrats. What's it voted for. Donald Trump and there are some as well as moderate Republicans and bringing this in a big coalition because if you win big you you win a. Keep the house but you win the US Senate. Then you can get all these things done like the climate change legislation we need to pass or the work that needs to be done on on pharmaceutical prices immigration reform which is just waiting for a president to lead on so you have to win big and to do that you need to bring people with you and not shut them out and that's about policy but it's also about tone and we are at a point where people used to tune in the president no matter if they voted for them or not they thought it was part of their obligation as citizen. They'd have their kids. Watch the president. I remember this growing up even if you didn't agree with them about right now parents. France are tuning down the volume because they don't want their kids to hear what this guy says the racism the attacks on emigrants the belittling of people in politics. It's really outrageous. It's outrageous for any first grade teacher because it's not what they want to teach their kids so changing that tone and that's why I did the one hundred day plan plan where you just have to change the tone and do things immediately differently so that you're not just waiting a year to pass a bill there's over one hundred things you can do without. Congress which are legal so you know. I just think that is going to be a bit of this. Imagine what it's going to be like for the media when you wake up and someone in isn't mean tweeting at five. Am You guys are going to be like what are we. GonNa do. I have to go back to sleep. It's GonNa be rough going. Take a short break here but we'll have more with closure in a moment..

"This is Radio Atlantic. I'm Isaac Dove Air so there's been some news this week and while the situation in Washington is blowing up we at the Atlantic were having our big annual event here which we call the Atlantic Festival staff writers and editors chat onstage with big names names and business and politics and this week show is a actually a live taping Radio Atlantic from the festival with one of those big names Minnesota senator and presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar it was recorded on Wednesday evening with the senator fresh off a vote in the Senate. We talked about impeachment of course but also about the metoo movement the strange experience running president her distinctly Minnesota backstory and a James Madison quote. She's been thinking about a lot these days. Take a listen it really happy to have Senator Klobuchar here a lot of the these that I've been doing. I've been out on the road with candidates and this one we were thinking it'd be great to have in Washington to do this and let me start with this senator. You just came from a full day in the Senate just basically fresh off a floor. A number of your colleagues who are running for president didn't even show up in Washington this week. I have talked to other the people in the Senate. Even those who are not running for president who say there is nothing that is going to get done. The President says now that the Democrats have started down the road of impeachment. That's it there's no agenda. Why are you still showing up at the okay question by the way there were a number of us that we're here off and on. It's all Elizabeth yesterday and I saw Michael Bennett was there today. I am a little different position. I'm actually in leadership and I had shared the steering committee of the Senate and believe it or not I had an event today for the senators we had about twenty of them there that featured Don Rally and legal experts which had been planned because the supreme court upcoming term but of course we had other discussions as well and then I also think this week. I'm actually very glad I'm here. There's been other weeks. I've missed a few days. I given what's happened. The importance of this and I was able to talk to my colleagues on the Judiciary Committee Committee meet extensively with Senator Schumer and Durban about this so I think it's important to be here but there are people that are here some days on on the next you just have to keep trying to balance it and the last thing I'm sure you've heard about our exciting antitrust hearing but that is actually a really important topic for our country entry and it's been neglected. It's part of the reasons we're seeing less startups and I had that yesterday that I chaired Senator Lee and then Senator Tim Scott and I I started a entrepreneur an entrepreneur caucus which is focused on this startup slump and we had thirty women entrepreneurs from all over the country talking about this topic so I just there are things outside of votes that you can do when you're a US senator and hearing from colleagues and talking to them. I'm like Tim Kaine. We had an Iran briefing today that I was at so there is a lot of things that go on outside of the fact that we are not having votes votes on important things like the guns bills are just sitting there which is just to me unexplainable when you have the majority of trump voters want to see background round checks the majority of Hunters WanNa see background checks but this president could literally tell Mitch McConnell bring these things up for a vote and he would and he hasn't so so those are reasons to be there but just remember. There's lack going on and that's why I was there. Who are there that is a lot but of course let's talk about the thing that we're of course going to talk about. Which is impeachment This is something that you were out in favor of June. It took until will yesterday for the speaker to say that she was supportive of the process. Do you think that that's time that was misspent. Should there have been should've said move more quickly. They were doing investigations as you know. They've had a few hearings with witnesses and things like that. I think the main point here is what this was about and that is this pattern that we're seeing that really came to light with. Presumably this whistle blower complaint that I haven't seen but the summary I don't call it a transcript because there are a lot of dot dot. Dot's it was a written summary of the of the telephone conversation that this president had with the president of Ukraine and I think all of that drove this decision having talked extensively to Senator Schumer and others who who spend a lot of time over the weekend talking to Speaker Pelosi. I think that this was about that and the fact that you had these a number of Democrats kratz that incredible group that wrote the piece in the Washington Post with their military intelligence experience Democrats elected who had served brand new Congress Congress people many of them women who wrote this moving piece about why they were there and why they believe that this was such a national security risk. I think all of that in a good way drove the speaker and the the what we have in front of us right now is not something that happened in the past not that that's the reason the defining line for impeachment it is more that it's something that's ongoing and that's actually when I came out for impeachment that was when he welcomed intelligence from other countries to us as dirt it was actually the same kind of thing that he he was interested in this and then exactly and this is just part of that pattern that you saw start when he stood in front of that wall of those agents who made the ultimate sacrifice lost their lives anonymous honest stars and he had the Gall Stan before that wall and talk about crowd size and make a partisan speech or when he believed the Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence director or when. He said he loved Kim Jong Own I'm or when at the g twenty when someone asked about invading our elections he turns to to Putin and makes a joke and I remember thinking at that moment hundreds of thousands of soldiers have lost their lives on the battlefields protecting our democracy or democracies around on the world for little girls in this was just commemorated and the fifty six anniversary of the bombing of the church in Birmingham for little girls innocence lost their lives in that church in that quest for civil rights and in people that are willing to stand up and ego people that were trying to stamp out there right right to be part of that democracy so this is something fundamental to our country that crosses party lines and that's why I think that this idea that he on a phone call is basically Lee saying hey you know Joe Biden and his son or out there in that has to be looked into and some of the things he said when you read that summary very very disturbing the simple notion that you shouldn't put your own personal interest in your partisanship in front of our country when you're president of the United States dealing with a foreign leader and I was he was Isaac was teasing me. I found a quote from James Madison that it would make every happening podcast heading cutting edge but it was about way back when our founding fathers decided that they would put those articles of impeachment that they would have that in the Constitution Madison back then said this why would why would you need this with the president he uses word he I would of course say a he or she he might pervert his administration into a scheme of Pecu- Latian like embezzlement or oppression he might betray his trust to foreign powers and when you think about the founding of our country that was all about independence and breaking away from a foreign foreign power and so it makes sense to that they were worried that one branch of government as in one president would somehow sell out to a foreign power so you think about that and he was talking about that in terms of why we had the ability to impeach and I think it just goes back to the founding of of our democracy and we've gotta remember that and that's what this investigation is about and I think that's what created this situation where Speaker Speaker Pelosi. It tipped it for her because it's ongoing you were a prosecutor for years. Do you think that the Democrats have done a good enough job making making this case so far to the American public so that people understand what's going on and why to you it is such a problem well the I think we all know no the Muller report was that was hard because the he would only talk about what was in the report basically I think when you read that report carefully you see this pattern of conduct where he was basically the president was ready to flaunt the law and did flaunt the law but that that aside this case. We've only had a day to make this case We just got this summary and so. I don't think it's fair to evaluate this yet and this is a whole different realm that we're in the other thing that's going on is the intelligence.

"amy klobuchar" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy

"A chair tax on tap with David axelrod and Mike Murphy Mike Murphy how you doing brother. I'm doing good eggs. I'm doing good. I'm I'm a little worried looking at the world situation complicated politics in the Middle East. Just what president trump was created to handle and of course we're we're back to the Supreme Court nomination battle against the way back machine a lot of stuff to cover because we we we now have the aftermath of the debate and we ought to go through it and see what what it all meant but yeah cavenaugh back in the news loose and new revelations in a book by a couple of New York Times reporters suggesting that evidence additional evidence was overlooked by the FBI. Maybe by the Senate Judiciary Committee and President Trump energetically leapt into that debate and as did Mitch McConnell told the far left and besmirching this good man phillies phillies four Democratic presidential candidates. Maybe five immediately called for Kavanagh's impeachment. What do you think the politics of this is this? This is classic based food on the right conservatives. They like Cavanaugh. They think he got a bum rap. They're not sure I think if they were honest about it about what happened. All those decades ago is a drunken college student but they think he's led an exemplary life since then and they're seeing an attempt to bring a can opener the supreme court you know on the other hand. The Democratic Base sees somebody who lied is guilty of sexual assault and therefore I get why the Democratic candidates repealing on but in the general election I don't know again this is yet another thing that Republicans will create a wedge issue out of for being a conservative. He's being totally maligned signed. I it's messy and it the incentives are fight like everything in our politics. Now I mean I believe that that whole process was was was really suspect and that they didn't thoroughly investigate but you you you talk to Claire mccaskill and some of the Democrats who lost in two thousand eighteen and they would say that they had momentum until the cavenaugh hearing that really really stoked up the Republican base so as a matter of politics. It's you're a good base politics and if you're running in a democratic primary it's a good place to be to call for impeachment. I look forward to talking with our guest today. Amy Klobuchar who was who's on the Senate Judiciary Committee played a big role in those cavenaugh hearings to hear what she has to say about it. You mentioned the Middle East this thing with Iran has has really ratcheted up now the they there was an attack on Saudi oil installation the hootie rebels from from Yemen claim name credit for it but it looked like a pretty sophisticated attack in the administration immediately blamed Aaron and word let word out that they're considering all options including military options. Where's this all go well? That's a billion dollar. Question isn't an interesting one because the Iranians and the Saudis have been and having this proxy war for a while fighting it out in Yemen although there's some evidence that the missile which apparently could have been in Iranian copy of a Ukrainian Ukrainian Russian missile they bought on the black market a cruise missile could have come from southern Iraq from the North so this thing is escalating and it could would be I mean we could have retaliation by the Saudis or armed to the teeth and even there our allies some American participation. I think president trump if you're a cynic might might WANNA change the subject a little bit on the other hand. The Iranians are escalating their troublemaking so if we have an election that suddenly about foreign policy that could shuffle apple the deck and then yeah. I think it's really complicated because trump is a guy who ran on non engagement on withdrawing from these foreign foreign bow so maybe people believe that you know sensitive oil and gas prices which are going to go up inevitably that that will that he needs to to act but I think it's a really tough call for him. I remember being in the White House and I remember what the military military people said about what what a war with Iran would really look like and it is not this is not Iraq where you just kind of knock out there yup and these are serious. these are serious foes what you start with the chain of esscalation. You don't know where it stops as the problem then you've committed American forces to it I don't know but who who wins his a candidate like Biden. Deceive say Captain Foreign Policy Repeat the veteran. I think it could shuffle the deck a little for for the D. L. O. Who knows where we'll be in a year with this one election that it may affect is the Israeli election Netanyahu's up on Tuesday his his whole you know one of his predicates is the threat the mortal threat that Iran poses to Israel Donald Trump's very popular there little sabre-rattling rolling in advance of that is not is not a bad thing? I remember once I A. Bb tried to hire me and I was unable to do it but we had an interesting conversation and his view which I thought was correct is that the fulcrum point of Israeli politics is always the topic of the election of domestic stuff labor. The opposition does well well but if it's security who'd and bb does well it does seem to be playing into his hands in the polls show BBC having a little comeback and just last week just last week he we had a a presser you know disclosing what he said were unknown here heretofore unknown Iranian you know nuclear Klier facilities and so you know he's leaning into that so we'll see what happens with that but we had some contre temps of our own of a different kind last week week in that democratic debate. I WanNa get to that in a minute but first I wanNA talk about insurance. Well you know exit. Exit is National Life Insurance. I bet you didn't know that most people don't that's why forty percent of people don't even think about life insurance and don't have any and people really should should think about.

"See so many amazing plus size models. Like Ashley Graham, there really is a different image for women out there, than there was, when I was growing up, and I think, especially when it comes to like, buying bathing suits your sorry. No, but I just I just wish we could extradite this. I don't think I ever say anything to a woman about her body in general because I don't know her journey and she doesn't know mine, and I just want to leave it at that. Embrace it. Then. Yeah. Having said that have you ever bought tried on a bathing suit in one of those dressing rooms? Yeah. I I'm really comfortable with my body. I'm thirty four years old. I'm just happy. I'm healthy husband loves me. And I've got a great job. I mean, I don't have body. It's working in media, I don't, but I don't sorry if you don't want work on me that you shaming didn't work on me. It just didn't sorry, guys that the best thing that has this piggy all the time. It doesn't bother me. I don't care. I really I don't care, the, the best thing that has happened is internet shopping. Try on everything. Not. Yeah. You can buy bathing suits online. Right. And not experienced it. I don't know. I'm from a different generation. We would body shamed constantly. It's awful. You really it is. I hated it. But what am I going to kill myself? No over what boom, exactly. You know at this age damn anymore. All right. We, we write back. His democratic presidential candidates, Senator Amy klobuchar. Think anyone can catch up to Joe Biden, does, she think the Reisen restrictive new abortion laws are a war against women. She's live on the view next. Senator Amy was jar is now one of two dozen count them democratic candidates running for president and while. I'm thrilled at how many people wanna take Trump's job away, what she going to do to stand out from the pack. Let's find out please. Welcome Senator Amy klobuchar. Will you? I'm very good. You look, I love the audience. Yes. Yeah. We've been talking all week about the Alabama abortion band that was signed into law on Wednesday. The seems to be a big push, all of a sudden in many parts of the country to get this strict abortion laws on the books. How this how concerned are you about the, the possibility of overthrowing Roe v? Wade, extremely concerned, what these guys are doing is unbelievable. I say guys because, for instance, the vote in Alabama in the state Senate, it was all men that voted for this, what they're doing to women involved is online today. Okay. They're taking us backward. Right. They basically are criminal things doctors when they do this, and anyone that's prized about this. Look at what Donald Trump said during the campaign when he was running back for president. He actually said that women should be punished in a town hall meeting, and then he said doctors should face consequences. He hunts of so I wanted to be clear that this. Was a movement that he started. And that's why this twenty twenty election is so important, because you look at the assault on women's health, it is everything from taking away the right to choose to defunding Planned Parenthood to taking away, the Affordable Care Act, which you mean you could be thrown off your insurance for pre existing condition..

"If he runs which he probably will, you know, she arguably has the least baggage she does have these reports of mistreatment of her staff to ensure later on. But it's like, okay. If you're going to not go with. The left progressive candidate than who. Do you go with? I think he can make a pretty good argument both kind of likability grounds, and in terms of with the major stuff, she's with the Democrats, and it's more kind of local stuff where she might deviate. Some more Minnesota is fairly purple. So that's the case. I mean, I put it. It's all about the mid west mid western kind of personality mid western electoral strategy to people from the midwest. I think that's an interesting people may west, I think in my views westerner, gore card, the BS factors relatively no BS, beer wine. This is like Tugay I actually want to we have to talk about Amy klobuchar ours. Recent stories not at the bottom, but at the top because here's my reason why Amy klobuchar has gotten national attention for exactly two things one her roundly applauded performance during the Cavanaugh hearings as a tough, but polite questioner, right? She got a lot of excellent press for that before that people did not really know, we may close our was outside of Minnesota where we should know. She's extremely popular the other time that Amy klobuchar has gotten national attention in the past few days for these allegations that she was abusive to staff, not just a mean boss, but like straight up of using her powers stuff like that. I don't know if that will affect things, but I can see those allegations coloring her campaign, and here's why I would say that and I might be wrong with this is I think is strong a decently strong theory that should be considered. Which is if there are going to be close to twenty people in the race, some of whom are known someone who's describe it to me as their candidates in this race that are known outside of Trump. Right. They have their own identities. They're not just this figure sort of filling in as like, well, I could be the opposite of him Amy klobuchar. I don't think has that. And so if she has she has these two prominent national examples of who Mikhailova shar is one of which is very unflattering..
