Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis

"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.

time advocate for his community he's run for local office it is a small business owner in Georgia and of course a recording artist having made five solo albums under the name killer Mike kill my joined Atlanta's mayor and police chief to address the violence that erupted around the protests there over the weekend he served up some wisdom and a call to action take a listen I didn't want to come and I don't want to be here I'm the son of an Atlantic city police officer well my cousin when I see the police officer and mother because he's point please house and I got a lot of love and respect for police officers down to the original eight police offices in Atlanta that even after becoming police had to dress in a YMCA because why the offices didn't want to get dressed with and here we are eight years later I watched a white officer assassinate a black man and have no effect for your heart out and I know it's crippling and I have nothing positive to say Hey moment because I don't want to be here but I'm responsible to be here because wasn't as Dr king and people dressed nicely who marched in protest it to progress this CD and so many other cities it was people like my grandmother people like my aunts and uncles were members SCLC in a double ACP and in particular revenue change orange Mrs Alice Johnson in reference love who just lost last year so I'm duty bound to be here to simply say that it is your duty not to burn your own house panel for anger within him it is your duty to fortify your own house so that you may be a house of refuge in times of organization and now is the time to plot I am strategize organize and mobilize it is time to beat up prosecutors you don't like it the voting booth it is time to hold me oriel offices accountable chiefs and deputy chiefs event is not perfect but we a lot better than we ever were and with a lot better than cities are may as hail I woke up wanting to see the world burned down yes it takes tiger see black beam back he casually put his knee on a human beings neck for nine minutes as he died like a zebra in the clutch of a lion's jaw and we watch it like murder porn over and over again so that's why children the burned to the ground they don't know what else to do and it is responsibility of us to make this better right now we don't want to see one officer charge we want to see what office is prosecuting incentives we don't want to see targets Barney we want to see the system gets synced up with systemic racism barked to the ground and as I see it here in Georgia Thomas Stevens George a former vice president of the confederacy white man see it that long fundamental law stated that whites were naturally disappear you're right in the confederacy was built on a cornerstone of the cornerstone speech looking up the cornerstone speech that blacks will always be so bored that officer believe that speech because he killed that ma'am I can M. in this city offices have done horrendous things and they have been prosecuted the city's cut different in this city you can find over fifty restaurants all about black women I don't say minority and I don't say women of color so after you burn down your own home what do you have left but char and ash see any to get a great thing I love CNN I love Cartoon Network but I'd like to say to CNN right now karma's a mother stop feeding fear and anger every day stop making people feel so fearful give them hope I'm glad they only took down the side of the face the building in a not killing human beings like that policemen the I'm glad that they always destroys a brick in marketing they didn't rip a father from the sun they didn't rip off of someone from a mother like the policemen the when a man yells to his mother interesting paint and she stayed he's essentially yelling please god don't let it happen to me and we watched it so my question for us on the other side of this camera is that the barns what would be left with chart with the rise like a Phoenix out of the ashes that Atlanta has always done we use this at the moment to say that we will not do what other cities have done and in fact we will get better than we've been we got good enough to destroy a cash bonus you don't have to worry about going to jail because I paid we got smart enough to decriminalize marijuana how smart we will be in the next fifteen to twenty years to keep us ahead of this car so that much like with South Africa suffered a part that you had and you know the politicians that could make sure that it let us see a coca Cola we love you but if you don't pull out of South Africa with only we're not gonna drink coca Cola anymore coca Cola truck on a sack in apartheid so we have an opportunity there because I'm not I don't have any good vice but what I can tell you is that if you sit in your homes tonight instead of your home to the ground you will have time to properly plaque plane strategizing organize and mobilize an effective way in two of the most effective ways first take your **** to the computer make sure you fill out the census so that people know who you are and where you are the next thing is making sure you excellent exercise are political body power and going to local elections and beating up the politicians that you don't like you got a prosecutor central part of the jail you know was booked into prosecutor it now now

"Moving on to a different topic that but one we have not discussed. I don't think no over on for over thirty five sunless tanner cousin. That was the tide. The subject of the email. This listener writes to us. I just came to the starting realization that there is a crucial part of skin care. We have not dove into yet. Sunless tanners exclamation point times three. I have more time than usual during the self isolation and since I won't be visiting a beach anytime soon. I'm wiping out the self tanners. For a little pep. I would love to hear some wrecks of easy to use an effective self tanners or an inhouse comparison tests. I've had good luck with tart tanner's but I am trying out I'll of paradise and will report back curious to hear what others are using out there. I'm curious to. I'm curious to because I don't use anything like this I don't either and actually I'm incorrect. I believe the title of this email. Referenced Bronze Irs and so it made me think about like what we may be putting on our sheikhs but that in our face but then I believe they're also talking about like all over Sunless Tanning. Yeah. I think they are now. Has Tanning ever been a thing for you later? Channing have you ever like bought the Juergens on okay back in the day. I mean. We're probably talking like DOTS. I feel like everyone was using that. Jergens sunless tanner. I would use it. I felt like it always looks sort of streaky on me So I I was never a huge sunless. Tanner person how about you. I also went through a phase of putting that jerk stuff all over my body but I have never gotten a spray Tan. I've always wanted to but I just have never gotten around to it. I don't even know where to begin to spray tans in my life one I got in the early to mid odds before a friend and I were going on a trip to Atlantic City when I lived in Philadelphia and I loved the Spray Tan like. I thought it was amazing and I was also like Oh. This is what it would be like to be. Tam like this. This is fun. Didn't get another one for probably ten years or so. And then when I was at buzzfeed someone else was doing in article about spray tans and they got like a spray tanner to the stars to come in and they asked if anyone wanted to get a spray tan and I volunteered and it looked so bad. It looks horrendous. Oh my it was way too dark. Okay I looked. I didn't look like myself like I felt like maybe over the years. I have now romanticize this original spray Tan but I felt like what was great about my original Spray Tan. Back in two thousand and four. Was that it. I still like looked like myself and this was just like what has happened. Look Tan mom remember Tan mom. Oh remember Tan mom. I'm like fully up on Tan. Mom what she doing now. I mean she's like releasing songs and occasionally appearing on the Howard Stern show it good for her? She's still so Tan. I believe she is. Okay but yes. I do remember Tan mom yet so that was my last experience and I was just like what no so. We didn't get a spray Tan. Like for your wedding. No I didn't okay. Okay I mean. I know a lot of people do that but I was just like nervous that it wasn't going to turn out well and then you're like stuck. This is my fear. This is why I have never done it and I. I also like for example. I used to wear the steel. Bronze are as like my blush. Even owned blush. That was just what I use it. I really liked it but now I get confused over the way. Bronze is USED TO CONTOUR Like I feel like I feel like the the way we use. Makeup is evolving. And I'm still in like two thousand and four and so I don't quite have a sense of what I would do with it. Like I did. Watch him Kardashians like basic makeup routine video and then I tried to emulate at home and it looked like I tried to make a three on my face with some bronze and looked very stupid. Like I don't St- I'm still not good at countering although maybe I should take Contra Zoom cloud. We didn't. We discussed that. We were going to learn how to contour during yes. I've watched this video and I was like this was like her own doing contour herself. So I thought I could at least figure it out as opposed to a makeup artist. I couldn't I had no idea what was happening. So there you go so anyway this is. This is a spot where we would love some listener feedback. Yeah we would love to tell us. What are you doing this? For Sunless Tanning are you doing? It is still a thing. What do you like? What don't you like tell us because I would. I am totally game to get a bunch of stuff and try it out for the sake of the pod I just. I'm not sure where to begin. So I'm ready okay. Great I'm ready to experiment okay. Story I think you've gotta read this this so I'm happy to I've been reflecting lately on the act of journaling and I think you two are the perfect people to reflect with me on this. When I was a child I used to try to keep a diary as documentation of my life growing up in the nineties with Nickelodeon. I was inspired by the movie. Harriet the spy and wanted to have the dedication that Michelle Trachtenberg character had with her writings however I was never very disciplined by. Diaries were sporadic. And I judge myself harshly for that in my mid twenties. I hit a rough patch in my life and my other wonderful sister. Hope Gifted me a journal to help me work through anxieties. Something clicked and I stopped writing for posterity or documentation. I started writing to get things out of my head. I stop worrying about continuity I would mention people places or events without preamble for my quote audience in fact I began my journals things that I would never even myself read again often because I assumed it would be too painful to revisit them. Journaling has been a great way for me to clear the junk out of my head now that we are in this unique time in history. And I'm expecting my first child that I should be. Writing for an audience has crept in again. I have the urge to think more of my writings as documentation that will be meaningful to someone else at some point. I'm definitely not a dance. Like no one is watching kind of person and this perspective is stifling. Dory I know you've been dabbling with generally more lately and since we're both writers. I'm so curious to hear what you think of on this question of audience for journaling. Do you write for no one like I prefer or for future you for your children or historians. I would love to hear from other listeners as well. Well well who do you? Who Do you write in your journal? Forgery? I think I write for future me I think I do too. I feel like writing for no one. I I kind of doing that. 'cause I'm not really thinking about the intended reader right but ultimately the intended reader is going to be future. Yeah hopeful and I say that as someone who still has kept journals pretty much through through college inconsistently but I have journals through college And I do enjoy a kate like not all the time but like occasionally I have gone back and looked through the journals and it like it is really wild to look through them and read them like re not just read about your your state of mind but like what you were doing and who you're hanging out with and I don't know I like I just find I find it really interesting but I also you know I like history and I like documents and so does obviously find interesting too. Yeah I you know when. My My parents gave me a journal the Christmas while I was living at home when my mom had pancreatic cancer and so I have a journal that kind of starts about three months before my mom died and it is really because that time in my life is so fraught and I don't remember anything from it. It is actually really moving to go back and read it and it's also very hard and miserable but it is really interesting to just see what my state of mind was during that time and I also have kept journals on and off my whole life. I mean I do think you do have to be prepared for if you are no longer around someone else reading it. You know like that is a reality that could happen.

"They picked up three or four of the of the better white semi pros in Atlantic City to fill vacancies. So you actually had an integrated black team playing for about a month which is pretty unknown. They one of them in fact was a guy named Whitey grueling. Who was seventeen years old? At the time he played that month for them later he became a sportswriter and became sports. Atlantic City daily press and in the forties was a constant proponent of integration of Major League baseball before Jackie Robinson. You gotTA wonder if if white he just didn't sort of get his start they're playing alongside black players in nineteen eighteen. So yes so they almost went out of business and then there was the thing that saves a lot of businesses somebody with cash and influence and Jackson took into partners from New York City. One was John Connors. Who had been a base he. He ran the restaurants in in Brooklyn and then in Harlem. He was pretty popular in that regard but he was very popular as a successful. As a baseball IMPRESARIO. He had had semi pro black team in Brooklyn as early as nineteen o four. He was forced out of business by Business Apolo white white business opponent named net. Strong who sort of dominated the semi pro seeing New York City by tying up Based available baseball fields and charging people to use them so connor was put out of business and he was happy to jump at the opportunity the backpacks and he brought in a business partner even probably even more money than him again. Even Barron Wilkins. Who is one of the leading speakeasy Operators in Harlem and had some sporting some sporting interest he was a backer of Jack Johnson the fighter and interested in sports not as Hands on guy but somebody like put some money into it and enjoy it. So they bought into the background checks and rejuvenated the team and this is in fact when they started playing part time in. New York City because they were from New York City. They wanted the team to play in New York City. They wanted to be outside of the the grip of Nat Strong. I didn't WANNA be paying him. A feed us a ballpark and that was feel strong. Strong had no sway over ebbets field or the Polo grounds so they wound a bit ebbets field for several important home series in those early twenties so the team was rejuvenated. And there's still not. They're still league ball in the east. But as you pointed out you go nationally could start it out in the Mid West and nineteen twenty and back rex. Rube foster was the president. Very energetic came powerful president of the Negro Nationally and he authored eastern clubs. What were called associate memberships? You could be an associate member of his league. Which gave you the opportunity to schedule Games with his teams. Which of course we're potential moneymakers. It also allowed you to be exempt from his his league teams rating. Your rosters treating you like an like an independent team. And where Free Agency reigned among the players and siphoning off your players and of course you. You couldn't siphon off his player his league's players either but it was a it was an arrangement that was often used in the Negro Leagues and the backpack became the first associate member of the Negro National League in Nineteen Twenty. Which helped them a lot. Day then became. They stayed associates of The Negro National League and got so they were playing a lot of they were playing a lot more high class black teams and traveling to New York City more playing in the high level semi pro world wide world of Semi Pro Bowl in New York City. Things were things were going very well. And then in nineteen twenty three the eastern the primary eastern teams most most of whom were so were Negro nationally associates came to what was pretty. In retrospect seems like a pretty obvious conclusion that they should have their only so the eastern Colored League was founded stretching from New York City due to Baltimore it was pretty compact. You didn't have to pay the train expenses to go all the way to Detroit or Chicago to play Play the National League teams. You could play among yourselves. And then you could then you if you wanted to. You could take a barnstorming trip. West or Western teams would come and see you for barnstorming trip which is always profitable so the eastern Colored League was founded in nineteen twenty three and were charter. Members bringing us up to how they got into a league. Maybe you sort of touched on it. But why would they not have gone the net Negro National League route and foster? Maybe not sort of trying to. If you will expand from the Midwest to the East Coast given a handful of associates at this point I would imagine that foster might have looked at the founding of this eastern Color League almost as as an affront made he did a matter of fact as a matter of fact you looked at it very much as in the front and they didn't negotiations for a Negro World series. Which you would have thought would have been a sort of an automatic dragged on for years and didn't end I series didn't take place until nineteen twenty four a lot of the colored teams. We're very undercapitalized. Because they catered to ten the catered primarily to ten percent of the American population which tended be people who held income jobs and they're simply was not that simply was not the discretionary income to buy ballpark taken that they were among the whites and so far so so barnstorming was very important going going on a road for a week or two at a time and you know hitting hitting some cities and playing some Negro League opponents but playing all these little towns along the way you picking picking up money all the way. The travel to travel to the mid west costs were extensive. Ed Bolden who who ran the team called Hildale in Philadelphia before when the League when a Eastern League was founded wrote in in the Philadelphia. Tribune that basically I can. I can play. I can play a week here in Philadelphia where my players can walk to work and make more money than I would after putting them on a train to Chicago and paying their way to and from Chicago for a series. So it was. It was a matter primarily economics it would be you know taking taking a trip to the mid west from the east and playing a bunch of teams and coming back say take for too much or two weeks rather would be a good thing happened to go there. All the time was a bad thing financially a bad thing but but almost immediately right you've got Atlantic City in this eastern Color League essentially kind of you know arguably plan some maybe more major markets being in the east coast and stuff so before we sort of getting the giants a little bit more where it feels like there was almost a the. I'M GONNA call it an uneasy peace right but There was certainly some post-season collaboration as the years went on between the two leagues right. Yes the ambassadors went to work and First Negro World Series was played in nineteen twenty four between the eastern cluber league champion and the Negro nationally champion and they there was in a Negro World Series in twenty five twenty six and twenty seven. There may have been more but the economy Got Worse prior leading up to the Great Depression and Eastern Colored League went out of business in the middle of the nineteen twenty eight. Which of course ended that relationship. Of course the Negro National League was only a few years behind and doing the same thing so so there were there. Were Twenty four twenty five. There were four Negro World series between DC L. and an eighth in the National League and the Bax went. We're in two of them. Although they did manage to win either of them they they got better and better as time went on and they were really a good team by the mid twenties. Well we'll talk about that team a little bit so so. Give me a sense of some of these players. We haven't really mentioned some of their names yet. But there's some really intriguing Anna solid characters on this on this team and maybe a little bit of how how they were getting better. I mean back. Not How much did he care? Know about the doings of the team and door who was running all of the sort of onfield stuff. Where are these players coming from? Well you had Jack Tom Jackson was primary own primary owner and then he brought in He brought in Connor and Barron Wilkins from New York City. Who BASICALLY NEUTRALIZED JACKSON? They were big money. Guys and Jackson was. I mean he was connected with the team but he was not getting out of power that he had before they bear in Wilkins. And kinda well. Let's give credit to Connor. He was really the baseball man. He knew a lot of people he he brought John. Henry Lloyd to the team Pop Lloyd D Hall of Famer considered to be maybe the best black shortstop there ever was one of the best shortstops anywhere. There was Lloyd he brought Loyd to the team Lloyd became the manager became the star of the team. One of the stars of the team. Interestingly enough Lloyd was getting a little on in years when he came to the backpacks and his first managerial. Decisions was to shift himself to second base because shortstop was one of the was basically his successor as the best shortstop at the time. Dick Lundy who had been one of the original duval giants seventeen years old when he came up from Jacksonville. Nineteen sixteen and before many years were gone. He was regarded as you know the the up and coming young Infield Star and black baseball so Lloyd's switched himself to second base shortstop. So you've got now in all star up to up to middle situation. They're outfielder say they really. You know we like to say well. This team had so many hall of famers. Besides Lloyd and Ben Taylor who played for the team early on and then at the very end? He managed the team and was a part time player. Only two hall of famers they had but they had lots of guys in that tier below. Outfielder name Chaney White. Who's really overlooked? I think I don't know if he's hall of fame category. He doesn't get the credit he should. He was in center field for several years. Guy Named Arthur Henderson whose nickname was rats because allegedly. Because when he was a young man going to work. He opened his lunch pail and one of his workmates. Had put a rat in his lunch peel and the jumped out and scared him to death so for their after supposedly Arthur Henderson was rats Henderson but he was a real good pitcher and he pitched for them for throughout the twenties. had read greer. Who is a his career was kind of short but it was really outstanding Win while it lasted. He pitched the first were Negro World Series No hitter for the backpacks in nineteen twenty six. The team had one of their star players again. I wouldn't exactly say Oliver. Marcelle is is underrated. The people know.

"Fast. Casual what yes. That's that's wrong. I didn't know that this is where how we were going to enter into this conversation. Okay so let's go ahead and talk about the difference between fast casual and fast food. Let's defined some parameters so an and I will. I will make the distinction that five years ago when I tried all of those burgers. Yes five guys came out on top for me. Oh Wow so that is actually I agree with you. I do think there is like. It's there is some merit to try to come up with the platonic ideal of a burger of the American Burger. Yeah and you know. There are categories and filomena genus. All kinds of civil of ways that we could slice and dice that sucker. We're not GONNA do that. I know right now. That's a conversation for another podcast on another day but I am kind of excited to hear. The five guys came out on top. Yes so back in the day but at that time I got a lot of crap from the internet which is weird. Because you know the Internet's usually Komo's place lease exactly if you want to feel good about yourself. He's on the comments. And so apparently I was a communist but also economy. Yeah I don't know why they don't give them out for Free Forum. Look I don't I'M NOT GONNA I'm not GonNa dive into the Royal Miss. Out of the twitter's so there are a few distinguishing traits when we tried to think about what makes something fast food versus fast casual so On the fast food side it's Generally it's about ultra convenience right and when you think of ultra convenience you think of Open twenty four hours. That sort of thing. You also think of drive-thrus now that was one point where we said. Okay do fast. Casual restaurants have drive throughs. And you know when you think of does a Panara have drive through etc etc so that largely no largely in. Here's the thing we have to always say. We have to always qualify all of that. Because there's always some place that you could say hey Taco Bell Cantina has XYZ so so that was important to say. But I would say you know. It's about convenience I it's about price point. Yes because fast. Food is fast casual. It tends to be a lower price point agreed. It's about sort of. It's it's also a little bit of the health of the food and it gets a little bit more complicated. They're introducing these. You know impossible style things but generally speaking if you look at the ingredients in fast food it's like all of these chemical compounds because the food has to travel right however this is part of the challenge obviously with with a place like it out the reason that it is you know California centric is because of their insistence the emphasis on getting the ingredients for the lettuce and tomato and the all that stuff from certain purveyors local out of that so that they can deliver that consistency that they want. That's true so I and I would be counry. Factual counter examples for each of the categories these lines of demarcation. We're trying to set up here. But generally speaking you'd say ultra convenient. Ultra cheap less of an emphasis on all natural local ingredients there's a certain kind of Joie de Vivre. That's no way. That's the way you pronounce that but Apologies TO MME Bendtsen. My eighth grade French teacher but She's definitely listening. She's a huge house of cards fan. He has good taste. Yeah of course. Jimmy's used French teacher. And you know they have mascots for example like name a fast casual joint that a mascot. Yeah I you know. The funny thing is how this line has tended to blur and the funny slash curious slash interesting aspect to what you're describing right now is In some respects a commentary on wor. I'm older than you. But were sort of of a same kind of generation. It's different now. Like healthfulness is an important aspect at every fast. Food place near the calories are published. Yup and people are mindful of calories in some respect not universally. But there's you know it is information. It's a data point correct. Everybody is selling the freshness of their food. Now you're not do that Because you lose market share. Mcdonald's found this out yes and their competitors pounced on that sort of advantage you know. Wendy's being the the primary mover on this and you know the appeal to kids which is the mascot concept and why the the fast as very cleverly had the ball pit That also is an element of things that you will see it both fast food and fast casual now. Let the lay kit. Entrant is very well conceived thoughtful properly portioned in a single sized trae that makes it really easy for little folks to get there get in. Get her all this stuff. And and and get out I respect all of the Sort of attributes that you just described that you would use to try distinguish these distinguishing factors. The one word I haven't heard you say and I'm wondering if it's deliberate is fast will. Yeah I mean because there are some entrance in fast casual. That are just as fast as fast food. We'LL AAA right example. I mean you go up you go down the line and bullies arguably the original fast casual restaurant the place that wants to tell you all the ingredients and was proud of all that sorta stuff continues to be deservedly so it seems I mean. I had trouble with with tainted ingredients along the way. But that's part of tr- at trying to do everything in this the this above board way so I would say where it gets complicated is it just depends on the style of food right because some styles of food are just going to be fast but I mean she's Burger it is it depends on whether it's cooked the meat is. Is You know coming out. They have to form the patty. And that's what happens at shake shack and at five guys but McDonald's and Wendy's would have us believe there's a version of that happening now now at their at their spots. Yeah I mean well. Here's a here's I mean that brings up sort of an interesting thing so if fast food restaurants are kind of trying to evolve into fast casual like have more of a fast casual reputation because they want to attract the consumers that are mainly had to eating at fast casual restaurants. Can you think of a fast food restaurant restaurant that you would say fast food that launched in the last decade or fifteen years right? No that wasn't actually considered fast. Casual right yeah no. There's nobody in a weird way. Fast food is almost. It's like grandfathered in the point I just made about us being of a certain generation with a certain kind of Approach to market. That is now kind of passe. Exactly so and I and I recall I mean. I don't know about your upbringing but I ate a shit ton of fast food and Mike loaded. I my mom had problem. You know picking me up from school and we'd go to McDonalds so what my mom and when I yeah and like you know I was Gonna get to cheeseburger meal happy meal. May maybe you can only get one cheeseburger the meal and get an extra cheeseburger cholesterol issue as a kid but I doubt it I know I did but the It was more of like a dove bar related things during a Lotta those. That's your problem. I watched nine two now but the issue with that is that that was just totally fine. Now there's a certain amount of judgement around doing something like that. There's a certain class You get into some class issues around that where in these fast food restaurants are trying to say like well. You can order apples instead of French fries. You can get milk instead of the hi. C Orange which I used to crush the eighty ounces of that. Mcdonald's is the orange and you'd have like a sore throat from all the sugar. That plus a flare fish sandwich is one of the all-time great rip the very very underrated. The hi C orange plus flavor. I only ate that was on Fridays. Because we weren't allowed to have meat there. You go yeah that's right. We're inland right now. Yeah exactly sure we're GONNA stay stick to that tonight. I think that we are witnessing a changing of the guard when it comes to fast food as we know it is sort of this thing that is sort of you. Know like think about the drastic Park Mosquito. Or whatever in the amber that stuck in that time and anything that comes now always going to be mindful and is going to be more of the fast casual. I mean we get deep here on House of cards. Sometimes we try be thoughtful Michael Poland You know has done and the I don't know what what what's the correct way to describe who he is in in in the world. I mean he's an incredible writer. He's super thoughtful. Food has been his beat although now he's on drugs. Yeah I mean just food documentarian. Sort like a but a little setting aside. The correct way to to Dole out his accolades deserted the point that he made some time ago the resonated with me is like there was a moment from post war industrialization up to like the Eighties. Where the most important thing in the American diet was to produce calories cheaply as possible and the evolution since then is a price to the calories a hidden price to those calories in terms of the nutritional component And we've seen you know the the the effects of Consuming a whole bunch of Fast Food and Soda and processed bread products. And all that kind of stuff has price in inside of it. That has now seen the light of day. That hidden costs has been revealed. But we are now in an era where the confluence of information and The availability of data about the impacts of various foods on our health and you know The impact on kids of various things were just a lot smarter and it has had I think a helpful effect on the the the acquisition of food in a convenient way and also in an inexpensive way right. Yeah no absolutely and I think you. I started to see the foundation crack obviously with like super size me as fast food nation right. Yeah we're both of those kind of came out around like two thousand late nineties early two thousand and that's when you saw a pivot where these fast food places started to say. Okay wait will maybe. Everyone's noticing because there were being shamed exactly like people are noticing. Because you're being publicly shave and there's a dino a movie where a guy gets fatter and fatter on your food and like has a serious health episode has has to be potentially hospitalized. Exactly so yeah. That's not that's not going to give you a ton of A ton of great press but yeah so I think we started to see the evolution then and that actually happened to coincide with the Culinary Revolution in America. Right as more and more people became thoughtful about what they're eating and social media launched in top chef. And all of those sort of things. So you really.

Is Trump abusing his power over the judiciary?

"This is news in focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter before we go any further. I want to address today. Sentencing of a man Roger Stone Roger Stone. He's become the sentencing of Roger Stone. A LONGTIME CONFIDANTE DONALD TRUMP for lying to Congress obstruction and witness tampering was mired in controversy. Over how the. Us Justice Department handled the case under public pressure from the president. Mr Stone received a forty month sentence whereas prosecutors had recommended that he serve up to nine years. This followed seven cases of presidential clemency for White Collar criminals whose convictions included extortion fraud and lying to White House officials. Yes we have commuted. The sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail We have Birdie character we have Mike Milkin. Who's gone around and done an incredible job? Offer is the independence of America's judiciary under threat. Or as Mr Trump simply using the powers a lot to him on the line with me to discuss this is ed loose. Us National Editor and columnist and Cottam Schober US legal and enforcement correspondent. I let's hear a clip from president trump taken. Just a couple of days before stone sentencing. Just so you understand. I chose not to be involved. I'm allowed to be totally involved. I'm actually I guess the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the country but I've chosen not to be involved but he is a man of great integrity. But I would be. I could be involved if I wanted to be man of integrity he is referring to is the US Attorney General William Bar but is this credible given the tweets he published before the sentencing of Roger. Stone got tell us first about the case of Roger Stone which you've covered for the F. T. Who was he exactly? What was his crime? And was the sentence particularly lenient for this kind of case. Roger Stone is a flamboyant veteran political operative in the US. His career goes all the way back to working on Richard Nixon's election campaign and he has basically been the person you call as a Republican presidential candidate. When you want to get your hands dirty. He called himself a dirty trickster and he is an expert in this sort of Makir side politics in the two thousand sixteen election. He was a sort of informal adviser to Donald Trump. And one of the things he was trying to do was make contact with wikileaks. When it became known that wikileaks had a trove of hacked emails from the Democrats to use it for political gain. The thing that he was convicted of is in two thousand seventeen when Congress began investigating. What exactly went on to twenty sixteen election? The House Intelligence Committee called on Mr Stone and asked him about some of the comments he had made during the campaign and Mr Stone lied to. Congress about who is intermediary was or who he was referring to when he was talking about having an intermediary allied when. He said that he didn't have any documents or any written materials or any taxed of his conversations with that intermediary. The sentence he eventually received was actually probably pretty in line with what other sort of white collar criminals convicted of lying to. Congress or the government have received the key issue in his case was he had threatened a longtime friend of his who was also another witness. Basically saying don't contradict my story and those thrashed included threatening his dog for example the key issue at stake was whether he was serious about that and whether therefore has sent should be jacked up significantly because he had made violent threats and eventually the judge took the view that although it was serious that he'd made violent threats. The person that he had threatened didn't actually feel like they were going to experience violence. Ed Tell us a bit more about Mr Stone. And the history of his friendship with the President and whether you think Mr Trump's tweets constituted interference in the judicial process. Yeah as I said. He's a flamboyant dirty tricks. Who GOES WAY BACK TO LATE? Six hundred seventy trump maximum in the late seventies. He was introduced to try but he quickly hit it off. They shed philosophy of you know playing to win that no method is invalid. Never apologize never explain. Stone set up with couple of other people are very well known lobby group in Washington. One of his clients was trump who was seeking tax breaks a casino. He was setting up in Atlantic City. And really they've been great friends since then so the ties between trump and stone go along way that very deep and they're often allegedly nefarious in terms of the League outlook from this. I have no doubt that trump will seek to podcastone fast opportunity. Trump's on the Guy Senate acquittal spring cleaning of his administration ruthlessly seeking out anybody who isn't very very loyal so to get rid of weather that Meghan appointees the civil savage. Anybody perceive does slightly disloyal. Not Enough is being pledged. Loyalty is a hugely important hugely. Important thing to trump and stern has shown loyalty he has not. He is not divulged things that have damaged the president. He's showing toughness. He's been very Trumpian in how he's dealt with. Franchi's accused the judge me by of being a biased judge which she's rejected this very trumpian and I have no doubt that it will culminate in at some point. President trump pardoning Roger Stern question about what trump actually did part of the reason. Roger Stone was so controversial. Was that line prosecutors involved in this case we're uncomfortable with what Mr Trump and the justice department we're doing. Can you explain that to viewers and why it was such a problem so there are four prosecutors who secured Mrs Jones conviction trial so the trial team? They filed their sentencing recommendation which was seven to nine years which there's no bones about it. That's a serious sentence for anybody to serve and then that evening all of a sudden early hours of the morning so after midnight trump tweets calling it a miscarriage of justice. He says this is unacceptable and Lo and behold the very next day the DOJ which is the US Department of Justice DOJ officials. Start saying that they agree that the sense would be unwarranted and adair kind of reverse it. The following day afternoon we see all four the prosecutors quit the case including one of them actually quits his job at the DOJ entirely and subsequently a new sentencing recommendation is put forward. Which says we'RE NOT GONNA ask for a particular sentence but it ought to be far less than seven to nine years. The idea that four prosecutors would quit a case. All at once is astonishing and it was a very serious and important moment and DOJ his trip shook the DOJ. It was a very dramatic moment in Washington and the question then was was doj senior leadership. William bar the. Us Attorney General. Was He reacting to an order from trump or was something else going on now the lion that DOJ has stuck to is that there was a miscommunication between the US Attorney's office in Washington DC and between main justice headquarters also in DC? But they're separate offices. Basically Mr. Barr says he was not expecting to see a seventy nine year recommendation. The new prosecutor brought on sat at the sentencing that the prosecutors who filed a recommendation that you good faith and thought that they had been given approval to do so and so Mr Bar said listen. This is not about trump. This is about. I think that that sentence was appropriate and I was not told about what was going on. The important thing here is whether or not Mr trump explicitly ordered the attorney general chains recommendation. It's still gets to this question about how our friends of the president being treated in their cases now it's pretty common across the US for federal prosecutors to request tough even harsh sentences. That's not unknown. You don't often see the attorney general weighing in to ask for lighter sentences and certainly DOJ policy at the moment is to prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law to secure the longer sentences possible so whether or not Mr Trump's tweets were an express order to Mr Bar that he followed a whether he was acting independently. It still gets to this question about if your friend of the president. How are you going to be treated by this? Doj while we're on the subject of Friends of the president. The other thing that happened last week was a series of presidential pardons for White Collar criminals specifically several that have connections to Mr Trump. I talk about Michael Milkin. What did he do and why does it matter that he was pardoned? Michael Milkin is to people on Wall Street a hero. He effectively invented the junk bond or high yield bond market in the eighties and then he was brought low by prosecutors and the SEC and eventually guilty to securities fraud and nine hundred ninety. He served about twenty two months in prison after being initially sentenced to ten years. Ever since then he's been rebuilding his reputation. He's a philanthropist. Now has the Milken Institute and for a long time people on Wall Street rich and powerful people have felt that he was prosecuted unjustly and deserved a pardon. The other person. Mr Trump pardon rod blagojevich is perhaps less of a popular figure in any area. He was the former Democratic governor of Illinois and was prosecuted for trying to extort a children's Hospital for campaign contributions and also trying to sell the vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama when he became president his case involves some quite lurid wiretap quotes. Where he talked about Mr Obama's Tennessee. Being a very valuable thing with various explosives and that he wasn't going to give it away for nothing. The fact that these pardons came just a day or two before Roger. Stone's sentencing is pretty mistake -able signal of Mr Trump's power to grant clemency. Whatever case that he wants so prosecutors can go after his fans and associates. Jerry can commit crimes. Judge can sentence them to however long they want ultimately. Mr Trump has under the constitution the pardon power and that was a pretty stark exercise of that pardon power on the eve of a close friend of his being sentenced. Ed Do you think we're gonNA see more interventions this spy trump perhaps related to the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the election. People like Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Who Manafort I think would definitely be a case for another pop and I would be very surprised if Michael Cohen Without Him. Because Michael Cohen Tablet Trump describes a rat in that inimitable. Kind of multi language that the president sometimes uses Michael. Cohen testified to Congress very damagingly against president. Trump's he's considered to be a tax cut. The thing that links you know all these Haden's whether it's Michael Milkin Rod Blagojevich Obama Carrick. Us police commissioner who was the security guard incidentally for Rudy Giuliani. The thing that links all of them is that they're pretty well connected people who've committed white-collar crimes and who have upbeat through Fox News. In some cases that Bregovic wife spoke on Fox News. He carrots by on Fox News to capture the president's attention and I think the pattern is again very trumpian thing. It's it's about. People who trump identifies with he feels as acute. Did he feels. He's fatty toxic at he. Identifies WITH OTHERS. Who fit that description again though. The role of connections and of mutual friends and a Fox as dishing platform for pardon. These are very common. There's a pattern here. How big a cause of concern is all this. I mean it's trump's use of the pardon power markedly different from other presidents will Clinton famously on his last day in office Rich Hedge Fund billionaire and friend of the Clintons Madonna to the Clintons and that caused a lot of bad blood. Clinton was heavily criticised for intervening on behalf of a friend and it stood out and I guess the reason I mentioned that is it. Was Fatty unusual. It's now completely normal. Trump has happened many many people who under the inventions of us? Pardon history wouldn't ready quantify so I think he has changed quite dramatically and just to add on. There's an interesting historical link year. Another controversial use of the pardon power in the past was George H W Bush who infamously pardoned a whole swath of former officials who are indicted in connection to the Iran Contra Scandal and bill bar the current. Us Attorney General was back then also attorney general and so Mr Bar He had pushed not just for one. Pardon of Caspar Weinberger. Who was the former Secretary of defense? He said listen. If you're gonNA pardon any of these people you have to pardon all of them. I think his quote was in for a penny in for a pound and so you may have the curious historical echo if MR trump loses later this year of his attorney general at the end of his time in office being the same attorney general at the end of George W Bush's time in office advising him on. You know who to pardon before he leaves Hamas all this been received in Washington and then around the US do people care. It's been received as many other actions by president trump being received with a high temperature reaction inside the Washington. Beltway and shrug outside the GNOMES that being trashed here in a row very significant look at the powers of the presidency. The procedures the the president uses before he acts and the conventions so that being shredded caused great angst in Washington. Dc across the political divide and almost badly registered a ripple outside of Washington. The same of course applies to impeachment. It really didn't resonate much isn't resonating match in the Democratic primaries. In places like Iowa New Hampshire and so I think this is far far lower. It may be it should be different than ideal while but it registered FAFA LOA on the vote says right of than than even impeachment.

"A foot high. Wow Okay accused surrounded By ten hotel bodyguards he plays a marathon session as casino officials. Watch they give him hot towels. He had his own private bathroom to use. Trump hired a Japanese chef to cook them meals. Mike but it's not like that's weird because other casinos had actually flown in tableware from accused favorite restaurants in Japan. What just go to pure one? Would you rich people just live so oh fucking different. It's just crazy level of like it's insane it's offensive a little bit it's a little bit unreal getting away. All into the casino worked media covered his gambling which is what trump wants. Listen The Wall Street Journal. Oh quote sipping tea. AMID TUXEDO-CLAD BACTERIA KROUPI as Mr Kashigawa cash in his rumpled blue striped. I T shirt and plain black slippers has the look of a quarter slot machine player. Just off the bus from Hoboken I. It's amazing sometimes the the I don't even know if they know that they're taking a dig by being not that it's wrong guy. Looks like he's from Jersey but it's just this weird it is just like nobody cares. What's the content? The Philippine Inquirer wrote that dozens of not wealthy. Gamblers looked over a marble wall to watch him make huge bets. One woman a quote all that money. How can anyone? I just can't imagine the senior executive give of the Casino Jack. Donal said it was exactly the publicity. Trump wanted quote that cashew aggie chose trump plaza was an enormous mus coup for us. He was the perfect complement to the world. Class image we remarketing and enhanced the trump image of elegance and excitement A cashier Weiji could propel trump plaza in two into an entirely new realm action. Assuming he doesn't take everything. Yeah yeah that's a face and obvious but O'Donnell had warned trump. It was too risky and pretty quickly. Accu- started winning. Trump was down one million dollars in half an hour. Mike Oh my God. Does he want to go back to the Panos for awhile. Monkey Spaghetti Trump wrote in a book quote. What the Hell am I doing? I asked myself cashflows way down and I'm playing with a guy could win forty or fifty million in a matter of days like how there are times and trump's existence where he sounds like quantum leap into himself so it was now how obvious that trump's desire for publicity could put trump plaza out of business. Okay right maybe trump to realize or he did and didn't care but while most games give pretty good advantage of the house back rat as I said just because a relatively narrow edge to the deal right okay because I think one point two percent I might be Iran more one hundred percent. Nothing right quote. I was merely sitting on the sidelines watching one of the best. Gamblers in the world played against me for two two hundred fifty thousand dollars per hand. Seventy times an hour mud. Oh my God. Trump was getting freaked out. He said for the first time in the casino he called down to the casino floor late at night to check on the situation and learned he was down for a million dollars. Oh my Lord home the Lord you flew him out yeah. It's a lot like chewed to bet on coin flip. Yeah and it's a lot like trump's snake story it's like he's getting bitten. Yes why did you bite me. Whoa what is happening? Is The promise Stupid Watch. It didn't know I didn't know that was the thing. Why is it? What what what do you need it for exercise?

As Dave puts his foot on the clutch goes to according to James Osborn who is a rich guy involvement casinos a WHO ran the high stakes aspinall room in the diamond beach. Each Hotel Casino in Darwin. Australia came on the radar in Nineteen eighty-seven okay. Osborne was told by his boss to go to Tokyo Keo to meet with Akio who was getting a reputation for being a huge backup player in Vegas okay. Now I've read a little bit of a background essentially like flipping a coin. And you just kind of bet which sites I mean it's really it's A. It's a card game though yet. But it's a card game but it's a way people. Oh compare it to that. Like it's like betting on flipping coin and you're just the odds are pretty even between you and the house okay. So Osmar convince a Keough to gambling. Darwin he goes up and goes. You gotTA come down to Dr. When it's closer than Vegas all right here we got? We got a casino in two the day's Accua one ten million dollars. Okay because you know with a guy like get the fuck Outta here. Why did you come here get Outta here? The take your monkey suitcase go. The casino. Barely had enough money need to cover the debt. Two weeks later he came back and he wants six million dollars. Oh my God but ban this man. Can you ban him. But he had a uh he had brought a friend along who lost six million dollars so it was okay okay but where was out he needs to make like bring like someone we know. That a gamble a little bit but for sure so but where does out and all across the world casinos now knew about Q.. Kashi walkie okay. Osborne's casino sent a tape to Steve WYNN. WHO's in his? And by the way politics ticks. I really do I really align the opposite of your police aligned. Well he's a fucking madman. He's an unbelievable misunderstood the genius okay. Okay I don't think you know what that word means Newton face okay. So He sends a tape to Steve Wynn and has Stephen Security people look at it. Okay now Akil had lost six million at winds casino a year earlier. Okay he should have gone to. There's other one loss. That's the joke. That joke is sponsored by. Let's go to copy. This joke was sponsored by to help. Help me out those terrible Franks San Luis Obispo. Franks hot dogs in Saint. Louis Obispo brings dogs. We're on the beach. They're not on the beach there in town and don't fuck with the slogan so when they did that wins. People looked at the video. They looked at the video video from Darwin and look at their own videos and they found they can find anything that Aquino's noticeable difference. Okay to do all that money. Now the Chinese and he's partners in the Darwin Casino added expensive Consultant come in. Oh God and I mean Ah Earth take us so. He said that they had to alter and refit the doors. The Front doors of the Casino and then they had a net above the background table. They had to hide. That had to hide the net and Alfred Dragon Dragon as fish tank next to the back table and then the thanks ray would be good. This is okay. This is classic casino. Xenos is a little this a little stinky. Always bringing effect trig Shuhei guy so so it didn't work apart. I born to play. Okay so they do it. They put the fish tanking. They give her the net that changed. The doors doesn't work okay. ACCUA comes back in Christmas. One thousand nine hundred eighty five million dollars. Well he didn't win as much. So maybe maybe the tail is okay. It's not able to fully. Why turn out but move around the room? Yeah all right. Soon he returned on a chartered jet a Sent by the Casino and one another five million dollars after gambling all night so now the casinos fucking broke. Why did they like inviting us? They just think it's like you say they're like he's got he's got to lose. Okay so Kenneth. CEO's broke the owners side to put more cash into keep the casino from going bankrupt. Ah Still Casinos all over the world. Want acute gamble in their places. Okay and he did okay. Acute carried as much as is one point. Five million in cash in two bags when he went on gambling trips to casinos in Europe Australia and the United States okay acute claimed he had an income of one hundred million dollars a year and assets of one billion dollars. Okay all right but that doesn't sound that's a lot that's a lot for back. Then that's okay. He became known still a lot now. But I think we have a lot more billionaires. You'd better believe we do because we finally figured out how to make. Excuse me did you say what. Would you say by Said who. I'm fire billionaires. What just a little bit of fire if you know we? We don't want to hurt them. We Wanna be them. No no we WANNA WE WANNA take all their money away and so they don't have it make I want. I want every billionaire to have to live We reverse give all the homeless people The billionaires money and make the billionaires homeless and just live it out for a little while Oh my God i WanNa Watch the reality show flip my society and see that happen. Oh my God. So acute became known in the gambling world old as the warrior share. He would gamble for two days straight without sleeping. There's the name high rollers are few and the the biggest are often discussed among casino owners. Okay Akeel was known to bet up to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a hand. He's he's playing back at the whole time time. Yeah okay now. A guy named Donald Trump got into casinos in nineteen eighty-four. Dave so I I. I didn't know we got a guest star and soon moved into boxing. Dave what I'm not ready for this outbidding. The Las Vegas Casinos Dole Championship Bouts Casinos. He had the greatest boxers of the time and his rings Tyson form and all the George Cooney all the all all the big ones trump quote I put on these fights because I'm a fan. I do it because I like it. It's exciting people really react to it. You wouldn't see this kind of excitement at the opera or or ballet. That's by the way that's a promise you can make for most things. Yeah Yeah those are pretty tame events look it takes a smart demand compare boxing to opera. Bella I mean how many people are smarter to say look. This sporting event is more exciting. Then the ballet. You know what this is better than a funeral. The fights brought publicity. Also the fights brought brought in high rollers share or as they are known gambling Wales correct. It worked he was making a killing off off Wales on Fight Nights Philadelphia Inquirer quote according to the New Jersey Boxing Hall of fame. Trump's spent about three point two million to bring the spinks Kuni `Bout to Atlantic City ready and gamblers left seven point two million at his tables. Okay so win totaling money. Yeah in July. Nineteen ninety-seven trump bought the troubled Tauch Mahal Casino while still under construction. Okay paid six hundred seventy five million to buy finish construction okay. This this was mostly done through junk bonds. Fourteen percent interest rate. So he's paying a very high rate and now he's got a lot overhead right so so even before the Taj Mahal opened trump is scrambling to make money. Okay now you bring the ballet to town finally better than the boxing. You know bally's valleys not that exciting very fun. The dancers have agreed. They're gonNA fight each other after a Cao's victory in Darwin trump spoke to the owner of the Darwin Casino about okay any heard about accuse winnings and he also heard that accused lost at wins casino. Okay right so trump started trying to court akil okay. This is when he was a democrat. Right yeah right. But trump's top casino executive said do not invite to that city can okay so I guess I don't Foley I the idea is the is the idea that they keep going. This guy's bound to lose or is it like this this guy sort of known so. It's like a cool thing to have. How many years? It's like having celebrity here and I just don't think he's GonNa. I think I think most people lose. And when they gamble like rushing general so the odds are in your favor. I heard a guy if I'm a casino owner and I hear a guy like puts on these streaks. Yeah I'm like Oh well I'll ask the third tiered player to come and not this guy but he got Zillah he right now. He's top five in the world background player. Like he's yeah. Yeah I mean top. Five making top of high roller anyway. Okay they just think he's GonNa lose right back at is like a coin flip except it's got like a one point two percents favors house very as so being a top five. Are you not immediately. Just overly scrutinized as like I mean none of it makes accents okay. I need a catchy. I did it a moment. But trump wants them right so so his his top executive said it's too risky. Don't bring them. But trump doesn't listen in February nineteen ninety. Mike Tyson was going to fight. Buster Douglas in in Tokyo and trump was the promoter. Okay wow I can't believe I don't look into promoting for a while. But he he lost his ass on it in the end because of this fight right. This fight is when Tyson losers is upset in boxing. History time for sure and Tyson. Jason can sell tickets and now. You're and Douglas losing than the next guy loses so it's like a so. Trump trump goes to Tokyo Jio and apart by the way. That's one of my favorite movies. Trump is awesome. It's so great. I'm so much taller. Yeah I mean all that's up when he eats the Sushi. Just so fun it's undercooked. Yeah that's right so there's a party for friends and business people people that before the fight Tyson's there and trump is like escorting Tyson around the room so people can take pictures with them late to just have a recording of close to home artist right talking about rape she so you don't think so because they're both terrible people honestly yeah they I guess it was probably the worst. Two worst human sexual predatory yeah. They're angry really bad. Human had a minute was gonna be about something like that is so trump saw you standing in the corner and he walks over and puts. I'm Ron accused shoulder. He tries to get Tyson in for a picture and accused starts yelling. No picture no picture while he covers his face and you are my opposite completely which according to some people is another indication that he's involved with the Yakuza. Yeah I mean he okay all right. So trump took the opportunity opportunity to talk to Keough and give them a deal to come to Atlantic City K.. So he he flies him out from Tokyo on on a on a jet first class and a few days later accused is Atlantic City at the Trump Plaza Hotel and casino trump meets him at the door and it gives them an autograph copy of the art of the deal.

As Dave puts his foot on the clutch goes to according to James Osborn who is a rich guy involvement casinos a WHO ran the high stakes aspinall room in the diamond beach. Each Hotel Casino in Darwin. Australia came on the radar in Nineteen eighty-seven okay. Osborne was told by his boss to go to Tokyo Keo to meet with Akio who was getting a reputation for being a huge backup player in Vegas okay. Now I've read a little bit of a background essentially like flipping a coin. And you just kind of bet which sites I mean it's really it's A. It's a card game though yet. But it's a card game but it's a way people. Oh compare it to that. Like it's like betting on flipping coin and you're just the odds are pretty even between you and the house okay. So Osmar convince a Keough to gambling. Darwin he goes up and goes. You gotTA come down to Dr. When it's closer than Vegas all right here we got? We got a casino in two the day's Accua one ten million dollars. Okay because you know with a guy like get the fuck Outta here. Why did you come here get Outta here? The take your monkey suitcase go. The casino. Barely had enough money need to cover the debt. Two weeks later he came back and he wants six million dollars. Oh my God but ban this man. Can you ban him. But he had a uh he had brought a friend along who lost six million dollars so it was okay okay but where was out he needs to make like bring like someone we know. That a gamble a little bit but for sure so but where does out and all across the world casinos now knew about Q.. Kashi walkie okay. Osborne's casino sent a tape to Steve WYNN. WHO's in his? And by the way politics ticks. I really do I really align the opposite of your police aligned. Well he's a fucking madman. He's an unbelievable misunderstood the genius okay. Okay I don't think you know what that word means Newton face okay. So He sends a tape to Steve Wynn and has Stephen Security people look at it. Okay now Akil had lost six million at winds casino a year earlier. Okay he should have gone to. There's other one loss. That's the joke. That joke is sponsored by. Let's go to copy. This joke was sponsored by to help. Help me out those terrible Franks San Luis Obispo. Franks hot dogs in Saint. Louis Obispo brings dogs. We're on the beach. They're not on the beach there in town and don't fuck with the slogan so when they did that wins. People looked at the video. They looked at the video video from Darwin and look at their own videos and they found they can find anything that Aquino's noticeable difference. Okay to do all that money. Now the Chinese and he's partners in the Darwin Casino added expensive Consultant come in. Oh God and I mean Ah Earth take us so. He said that they had to alter and refit the doors. The Front doors of the Casino and then they had a net above the background table. They had to hide. That had to hide the net and Alfred Dragon Dragon as fish tank next to the back table and then the thanks ray would be good. This is okay. This is classic casino. Xenos is a little this a little stinky. Always bringing effect trig Shuhei guy so so it didn't work apart. I born to play. Okay so they do it. They put the fish tanking. They give her the net that changed. The doors doesn't work okay. ACCUA comes back in Christmas. One thousand nine hundred eighty five million dollars. Well he didn't win as much. So maybe maybe the tail is okay. It's not able to fully. Why turn out but move around the room? Yeah all right. Soon he returned on a chartered jet a Sent by the Casino and one another five million dollars after gambling all night so now the casinos fucking broke. Why did they like inviting us? They just think it's like you say they're like he's got he's got to lose. Okay so Kenneth. CEO's broke the owners side to put more cash into keep the casino from going bankrupt. Ah Still Casinos all over the world. Want acute gamble in their places. Okay and he did okay. Acute carried as much as is one point. Five million in cash in two bags when he went on gambling trips to casinos in Europe Australia and the United States okay acute claimed he had an income of one hundred million dollars a year and assets of one billion dollars. Okay all right but that doesn't sound that's a lot that's a lot for back. Then that's okay. He became known still a lot now. But I think we have a lot more billionaires. You'd better believe we do because we finally figured out how to make. Excuse me did you say what. Would you say by Said who. I'm fire billionaires. What just a little bit of fire if you know we? We don't want to hurt them. We Wanna be them. No no we WANNA WE WANNA take all their money away and so they don't have it make I want. I want every billionaire to have to live We reverse give all the homeless people The billionaires money and make the billionaires homeless and just live it out for a little while Oh my God i WanNa Watch the reality show flip my society and see that happen. Oh my God. So acute became known in the gambling world old as the warrior share. He would gamble for two days straight without sleeping. There's the name high rollers are few and the the biggest are often discussed among casino owners. Okay Akeel was known to bet up to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a hand. He's he's playing back at the whole time time. Yeah okay now. A guy named Donald Trump got into casinos in nineteen eighty-four. Dave so I I. I didn't know we got a guest star and soon moved into boxing. Dave what I'm not ready for this outbidding. The Las Vegas Casinos Dole Championship Bouts Casinos. He had the greatest boxers of the time and his rings Tyson form and all the George Cooney all the all all the big ones trump quote I put on these fights because I'm a fan. I do it because I like it. It's exciting people really react to it. You wouldn't see this kind of excitement at the opera or or ballet. That's by the way that's a promise you can make for most things. Yeah Yeah those are pretty tame events look it takes a smart demand compare boxing to opera. Bella I mean how many people are smarter to say look. This sporting event is more exciting. Then the ballet. You know what this is better than a funeral. The fights brought publicity. Also the fights brought brought in high rollers share or as they are known gambling Wales correct. It worked he was making a killing off off Wales on Fight Nights Philadelphia Inquirer quote according to the New Jersey Boxing Hall of fame. Trump's spent about three point two million to bring the spinks Kuni `Bout to Atlantic City ready and gamblers left seven point two million at his tables. Okay so win totaling money. Yeah in July. Nineteen ninety-seven trump bought the troubled Tauch Mahal Casino while still under construction. Okay paid six hundred seventy five million to buy finish construction okay. This this was mostly done through junk bonds. Fourteen percent interest rate. So he's paying a very high rate and now he's got a lot overhead right so so even before the Taj Mahal opened trump is scrambling to make money. Okay now you bring the ballet to town finally better than the boxing. You know bally's valleys not that exciting very fun. The dancers have agreed. They're gonNA fight each other after a Cao's victory in Darwin trump spoke to the owner of the Darwin Casino about okay any heard about accuse winnings and he also heard that accused lost at wins casino. Okay right so trump started trying to court akil okay. This is when he was a democrat. Right yeah right. But trump's top casino executive said do not invite to that city can okay so I guess I don't Foley I the idea is the is the idea that they keep going. This guy's bound to lose or is it like this this guy sort of known so. It's like a cool thing to have. How many years? It's like having celebrity here and I just don't think he's GonNa. I think I think most people lose. And when they gamble like rushing general so the odds are in your favor. I heard a guy if I'm a casino owner and I hear a guy like puts on these streaks. Yeah I'm like Oh well I'll ask the third tiered player to come and not this guy but he got Zillah he right now. He's top five in the world background player. Like he's yeah. Yeah I mean top. Five making top of high roller anyway. Okay they just think he's GonNa lose right back at is like a coin flip except it's got like a one point two percents favors house very as so being a top five. Are you not immediately. Just overly scrutinized as like I mean none of it makes accents okay. I need a catchy. I did it a moment. But trump wants them right so so his his top executive said it's too risky. Don't bring them. But trump doesn't listen in February nineteen ninety. Mike Tyson was going to fight. Buster Douglas in in Tokyo and trump was the promoter. Okay wow I can't believe I don't look into promoting for a while. But he he lost his ass on it in the end because of this fight right. This fight is when Tyson losers is upset in boxing. History time for sure and Tyson. Jason can sell tickets and now. You're and Douglas losing than the next guy loses so it's like a so. Trump trump goes to Tokyo Jio and apart by the way. That's one of my favorite movies. Trump is awesome. It's so great. I'm so much taller. Yeah I mean all that's up when he eats the Sushi. Just so fun it's undercooked. Yeah that's right so there's a party for friends and business people people that before the fight Tyson's there and trump is like escorting Tyson around the room so people can take pictures with them late to just have a recording of close to home artist right talking about rape she so you don't think so because they're both terrible people honestly yeah they I guess it was probably the worst. Two worst human sexual predatory yeah. They're angry really bad. Human had a minute was gonna be about something like that is so trump saw you standing in the corner and he walks over and puts. I'm Ron accused shoulder. He tries to get Tyson in for a picture and accused starts yelling. No picture no picture while he covers his face and you are my opposite completely which according to some people is another indication that he's involved with the Yakuza. Yeah I mean he okay all right. So trump took the opportunity opportunity to talk to Keough and give them a deal to come to Atlantic City K.. So he he flies him out from Tokyo on on a on a jet first class and a few days later accused is Atlantic City at the Trump Plaza Hotel and casino trump meets him at the door and it gives them an autograph copy of the art of the deal. She's man. I A lot of inconsistency with this man but somehow there is like the the most consistency as well. Okay for Christmas. Giving people signed our book and gave it I mean. Could you imagine these people's like like ten bucks there you go this for you. You like it. It's mine for my signature. It looks like a heart attack for some reason acuity not immediately really gamble. He just went up to the two level penthouse suite that he was giving locked himself in for two days.

"In los amigos mexican restaurant and bar is a sliver of a place tucked between the monolithic gambling halls of caesar's bally's in atlantic city and it's tacos is our eight talisman of sorts. Yeah i think so yeah a few people like i had a couple of gamblers that used to have to eat here before they went. That's patch camelia owned los amigos for forty years and in that time she said more than a few superstitious high rollers swing through her spot for some baja fish tacos or karnataka's does before hitting the tables there <hes> host would bring them in and said every time he tear he's lucky to someone employed by casino to take care of the big gamblers who are also called wales and this one whale couldn't get enough of los amigos so the fellow told me he goes yeah win when i come here so i was like back she it's awesome. It really felt lucky so that was a big plus size ceo. Keep winning. Please this whale. His gambling spot of choice was trump taj. Mahal the now defunct casino previously owned by the forty fifth president of the united states donald j trump if high rollers are whales than the taj. Gosh mall was the most opulent over the top whale sanctuary in the world. When it opened in one thousand nine hundred it was the largest most expensive casino ever built with with its minarets and domes and life-size elephant statues the taj cost nearly a billion dollars and boasted gaming floor the size of three football fields the utterly fantastic trump taj mahal casino resort where every day is a holiday and every night is new year's eve so take a magic ride or the eighth. I wonder of the world that trump taj mahal casino resort in atlantic city new casino the eighth wonder of the world wonder the pyramid of giza thought about that pop superstar michael jackson and supermodel elle macphearson were on hand for the grand opening so was lifestyles of the rich and famous robin leach because you know why not at times mahal casino is the wonder of the world on that diet thing. The beloved glum ranked nine seventy five thousand fan dan. He's swept away but they didn't stop the casino. Take topping two million dollars for the day away from the throng. I asked donald bringing in michael was his ultimate from michael taj mahal. He's my friend. He's a tremendous talent and it's really my honor. It's <hes> it's a big day for me. Shout shoutout to robin leach for using trump card in an absolutely on ironic way in addition to its other superlatives taj was the most lucrative casino in the world hauling and hundreds of thousands of dollars a day at least for a while but then just a year after it opened atlantic city's most glittery diamond and the crown joel in trump's casino empire went bankrupt a year after that trump's to other new jersey casinos also filed for bankruptcy by the time the final dice were thrown at the taj gaj. Two thousand sixteen trump's casino operation had gone bankrupt six times trump entertainment resorts the holding company that owned trump's casinos gino's was the only public company trump ever ran and every year that trump was in charge lost money in spite of that it's c._e._o. Donald j trump pulled down seven-figure bonuses year after year. The story of trump entertainment resorts is a story with many things it's about the basic supply and demand the relationship nation ship between a slick developer and desperate city and the consequences of gambling with other people's money and livelihoods and losing. I'm lauren over and from american american public media and the carlson school of management at the university of minnesota. This is spectacular failures. The show that goes all in on failure even the lady luck isn't always on our carside. If you've ever been to an american beach you have probably felt the presence of of atlantic city in the form of salt water taffy that sticky coastal confection that can be found in every cianci shop selling seashell jewelry and t shirts that read life life is better in flip flops salt water taffy was invented in atlantic city in the late eighteen eighty. S legend has it that a. storm dumped ocean water on an early batch of the candy hence its name but more likely the treats and vendor was just really good at marketing and that's also the story of the queen of resorts herself atlantic city in its early days. Atlantic city was billed as a health resort. The idea was air. There would cure people of illnesses and i and i love the the references is that they promised that if you come to atlantic city that you'll get lots of ozone that's bryant simon. He's a history professor at temple university university and the author of the book boardwalk dreams atlantic city and the fate of urban america and i can tell you from a recent trip to jersey's most famous shore i i took in tons of ozone and now cure to the vapors by the early nineteen hundreds atlantic city had shed its health resort vibe and started attracting a new white middle-class middle-class who suddenly had leisure time thanks tweet changing american economy as a destination atlantic city offered affordable luxury for the masses and it was a place to dress surf and march and say look i have enough money to take a week off and dress up and do nothing and that quickly became the more important thing the thing that make atlantic city america's first great middle class resort disneyland before there was disneyland. The key feature was the boardwalk with a capital be legged the most expensive monopoly property the original four mile long wooden walkway as wide is a two lane highway in some places was finished in one thousand nine hundred sixteen ecksteen and it was one of the most important promenades of the day a place to see and be seen people on the boardwalk save their best clothes so when they walk down the boardwalk and they weren't to muir clothing they were meant to be ostentatious and over the top pants that were cre- three so sharply they could cut you in the middle of the summer. Women wearing cashmere sweaters with mink stole is not worrying about sweating adding they wanted you to notice them being stole and at the heart of that gray was this ride down the boardwalk in a rowing chair. The rolling chair was one of the most unique attractions early atlantic city and one of the most troubling so think of a two person chair made out of wicker and then give it wheels and a handle the back so it can be pushed. It's like rickshaw but there's no real transportation purpose. The people getting pushed along had no particular place to go and the job of rolling chair pusher her that was generally reserved for black matte. It was a fantasy for white immigrants who sometimes we're not included in the american story for jews particularly securely for italians for the irish to be fully made into americans and how do you become fully made into americans. He become white and in part of being wade is controlling black labor. I mean that is a story of america. This boardwalk novelty along with the elegant hotels and restaurants staff by black workers allowed white vacationers to live out their race and class role playing fantasies and this friction would permeate the city for decades to come simon jokes that atlantic city's heyday was when everything along the boardwalk was shiny and new leg almost one hundred years ago but at least from a population standpoint he's right the city topped out at six thousand year round residents in nineteen thirty around that time prohibition brought all kinds of narrative wells to town doing things things that near dwells do boozing booze halls flopping and flop-houses your garden variety hustling by were to the city had tidied itself up in pitched into the war effort housing convalescing soldiers in the city's grand jazz age hotels and it's still captured a place in the country's imagination again it alantic city we will walk in a dream will be deep teaches and that is the timeless voice of mr dick haymes but everything wasn't peaches graham for atlantic city. Those war were to progress the city ground to a halt. This is the place that lives on fumes for a long time business. Hold out in the nineteen fifties. It's passed the tate. There's not a lot investment. There's not much new housing being built so it's really one of these places michael american cities where the heyday is nine hundred twenty nine plus as the the country's black population became more upwardly mobile and began vacationing at the shore a lot of white people were treated to the burbs and the backyard pools therein you know near-standard grouse white flight story i would argue that race and racism kill atlantic city that middle class whites no longer wanted to vacation in places that were diverse and they went to seek places that create that exclusion and that's disneyland in.

"Ago to save Atlantic City. You're talk of legalizing marijuana in New Jersey. And all these towns don't want it. You just legalize it in Atlantic City. And then you drive people there because that's where you can do it. Just in Atlantic City, you go there you gamble. You drink you overeat you sin? So you know, that's where you have your legalized marijuana. Don't they already don't do it there? Well, that's a good question. Don, I don't really know the answer. Yes, I still support that that plan to save Alantic city. I think they ought to do something. The question, of course, would then become in Vegas. I don't think it's I guess it's legal in Vegas. Right. Yeah. It is. Right. Think so think so to all right. Eight five five eight eight thousand nine twelve ten. I just don't think of Atlantic City is a family destination to you know. I never will either. I know for a while. I thought they should open up theme parks or water parks or something like that. But now, it's just not just go with go with the adult. Yeah. I think the best they ever did was the whole what what I was Vegas. What happens here stays here? That's what that's what you're catering to. Let's be honest. So they should just get rid of the whole kid thing. Yeah. Just go all one hundred percent while. Yeah. Just go all in on a sin and just stop pretending like there's no beaches here. It's just it's gambling is stop pretending that people are coming to ride the rides at the Pierre. Okay. Nineteen thirty seven. Yes. Knock it off. All right. Yes. Dan. Nothing. I thought you were going to weigh in as a kid who grew up on the pier. The steel on just look at you with anger right now. That was your childhood right there somewhat. I mean, even living near Atlantic City. It didn't go much as a kid. You went to the steel. Pier. You hung out of a steel. Pier. We went to ocean city more so gone. Thank you. Exactly right kids. Thank you were there. A lot of people that vacation in ocean error in Atlantic City. I never did. No. I never did. I am every once in Atlantic City in my life was when I was in college, and I was out of New Jersey at Maryland. And I went to Atlantic City the problem a kid. Yeah. Load up the truck for the week. Probably it probably is you go like you. Take your kidney, we've gone with the boys. And then like a homeless guy comes in. You don't even need is relieving himself. Mcdonagh on the beach, and you're like Kay. So that's why the resorts have three. That's okay. No attention. No attention to that, man. Doing never mind. The other problem too is that you get into arrears, and you sell one of your kids to try to make up the money. No money to feed them because kids I didn't get comparable breakfast. So look for crumbs and the couch. It doesn't work. Atlantic City wants and that's because my friend had a gambling addict father. See what children exposed to that environment? No, absolutely. Not you know, the reason why they don't want legalize marijuana in Atlantic City. Why? Well, think about it as much as it would draw people in what happens when you're stoned. You stay in your frigging room in order room service. Don't want to go anywhere. Exactly. And that's the problem. Right. I've heard. Yeah. That's what the problem is that I because I really I've thought about why are they not the ones leading the charge on this. And I think that's probably the answer is that people would would buy go to their room and not leave. No. And the only people that will do well with the people that have the vending machine contract. Hotels, and that's it. Sure, it'd be like I'm so stoned, man, let's go down and gamble. And it's it's the last thing you can't concentrate. I mean, it's like no hit me. Okay. Cool. I feel a lot of people that smoke as much as they want to go into Atlantic City. They'd spend all their money on weed and not so much the things that come with Atlantic City, like the very expensive restaurants or throwing your money away at a casino table. Well, let's face it. They want you to throw your money away to casino table. Right. The rest of it is all just theater. It's be honest, totally. And so the question becomes are you more likely or less likely to spend money gambling? If you are using a substance that is known to relax, you take away your pain and also make you hallucinate. This isn't that? What it does? I haven't. Honestly, I really don't know because I don't do it. But isn't that? What it does? I think they will the that's the whole impression is like you dude, like real laid back. Right. And that's why people with some people with learning disabilities. Use it as medication right because it yes. And help them. Greg. Ritalin is bad for at least like organic marijuana's better. See that. We'll rich into your right because you can grow marijuana. You can't grow Ritalin. You gotta make it into laboratories. Yeah. Tear point when you have like, you know, you're you're playing cards and somebody puts down a king like hit me. Like like, dude, you have a king showing. Happening. You know? Kim. Hit me. Sure busted. Well. Who wants to cheese steak right now. Look at a roulette table this. You're gonna miss like four turns. You're watching it spin like. Can I get pink red or black the colors form together might look pinkish? But well, that's probably why it hasn't happened is the only reason I can think of the only reason I could think of a why it hasn't happened yet. But look when I was a kid, it was it was very simple Wildwood ocean city or seaside heights and seaside heights was only if you were daring and reckless and otherwise wanted to be on television. Papillon that. No. But never was the idea of Goethe city for the week with the kids for a family vacation now, no way. Way it's ocean city when your little its seaside heights when you're nineteen twenty it's Lennox city when you're in your twenty s right? Yeah. Or I guess would like north Wildwood. Yeah. This is the thing though, is that I know that people will say why would it south jersey and seaside heights is north jersey. I guess technically. That's true. But you know, from down here it's actually faster to get to seaside heights than Wildwood. Yeah. Because you just go. What is it seventy all the way up? And then you're not fighting all the traffic on the Atlantic City expressway amend the term of the Parkway, but it has the reputation of being north jersey. I think primarily they don't consider themselves north jersey, by the way up in ocean county. They would they would tell you that they don't, but they primarily I think serve Staten Island and New Yorkers up there. Absolutely. And if you go up there, you're going to see the Yankees and all the other nonsense the giants and everything like that. Yes. You know what I mean? That's what you're going to see and they have not just New Yorkers coming over absolutely doing. Let me get one of those yet Taylor ham cheeses, then I hear so much about but in but in Wildwood, it's it's different. And then of course, you also have Cape May which is where Canadians go. Yes. Yeah. And their hair it's rich while what has become the leading destination for women in their twenties. I want to get hit by a cop though. Well, that's true. Listen, if you're a holiday on the beach from Kensington, that's where you go you go there wanted Joe conklin best funniest bit says when he talks about Canadians who drive past all those other places like drive past whereas at Cape Hatteras and Cape Cod. They keep going and going until they get the Cape May hysterical. French canadians. I just keep going to Cape Cod. No, no, no. Hey, very tip. Actually, I love Cape May, but it's a much different vibe. Would you say? Victorian, homes and beautiful. And then you turn the corner, and you had a new to speech. Yes. Remember that? Yes. Is you just turn the corner here? What will you and your wife? Take your kids when you guys go. You you take the kids on the ferry do go on the ferry. And then we take the ferry to the Chesapeake Bay, which is something we usually do down to down to Delaware. But yeah, no. It's just the new beach thing scares the hell out of me to they could try that in Atlantic City. But I don't I don't recommend. Oh, that's creepy to me. Well, it's never good. It's never good. It's it's a good idea and movies. It's never good in real life right now. Yeah. It's like in the movies. They get people like from Iceland or something, but real people. No, nobody wants to see any of you. Get the people to go. Yeah. Gimme a beer. Let me get myself. A beer. What did she say? What are the former native Americans say that I'm gonna get myself a beer, that's what you get at the nude beach. I can pull it up because we know we never did. I'd like we should do that actually this. This guy should be in jail. This this sheriff down in Florida that guy they suspended him that guy should go to jail that guy. Remember him with the candy and nuts, where ifs, and buts or whatever. Yes. Race. To the badge. I wanna do a takes away the shield segment I like to take away shirk. The seizure shield.

"AM six forty eight is the Conway show. We have a very interesting guy on with us. Bruce diabetic. He he drive Divac. He owns the Atlantic City ocean resort. It is a a mammoth hotel. It's it's changed hands. I don't know six to a dozen times or so it regionally the original cost of this hotel was two point five billion two point four billion dollars. And it was sold a couple of times. And then the hotel was sold to Atlantic City ocean walk on January ninth of two thousand eighteen for two hundred billion dollars and renamed the ocean resort casino with reopening summer twenty eighteen this past summer, and this is interesting down on April. Second of this year. It was announced the resort will join Hyatt hotels as part of their unbranded unbound collection. Plus if you live in New Jersey. I think you can gamble online through the casino and BRUCE'S with us, Bruce. This is a this hotel has an a tremendous story behind it. And it was built for two point four billion. And you guys picked it up for a fraction of that. Is that true? Two point four five billion was the main facility. And now we own the central plant now which was one hundred and fifty seven million in about two hundred and fifty million in furniture fixtures and equipment, so roughly three billion dollars. You know, we paid two hundred million four put another two hundred million into getting an open and operating it, and what's a beautiful place. And everyone knows it is the big glass casino in Atlantic City. It's spectacular. Yes, sir. It is. It's a beautiful piece of of architecture for sure now. Now, let's go back to you know, the reason you're on with us because of how huge heart and you have opened up your casino. Two people got caught up in this hurricane Florence and offered free rooms is that correct? That's correct. I early Wednesday morning. I made the decision that, you know. I watched the Weather Channel, I watch CNN. I don't sleep much at night. And and I just felt like I had been in situations before where where I could use some help my family could use some help. And so I reached out, and I made it very clear, and a wonderful fellow through the Associated Press made it very clear to people in that region of the United States that if anybody wants to leave that area, and they needed help and assistance that they could come and stay with us at ocean resort casino or accommodations would be free. And so, hey, we had an overwhelming response. It was amazing because I met I met families morning and last night as one family I spoke to follow this morning. He gave me a hug fifteen family members that he brought smoke. I know it's. Fifteen and he took four rooms. And he said, I have no idea what I would have done. And I said, well, I said, listen, it's absolutely pleasure. And I've made it very clear to the the the media outlets. The news outlet sort of reached out to us. You know, it's not about us. It's not about ocean. It's about doing the right thing about the hurricane evacuees. And we were very very happy to help. Well, that goes a long way when people are in trouble, either, financially or weather wise. I remember in Houston, there was know horrible, hurricane Houston. Yeah. Hurricane harvey. You're right. But there was a guy who owned a furniture store, and he let he gave away. He he let people sleep in his mattress store, and he let them use. His trucks is thirty eight trucks to move furniture round from out of these houses that are in danger for free, and he also gave away three hundred thousand dollars for the free furniture. That went a long way. And this is the same thing. Not only did he help hundreds and hundreds of people. But I guarantee you when he put his head on his pillow is at ninety slept. Very very well because he helped all those people for the right reason. Right right reason. And you know, it's absolutely a pleasure. My wife, and I started together forty two years ago. We really started with nothing we can nothing, but fortunate children know that and you know, I try to wake up every day. And if I can put a smile on my mom and dad's. No, you know, you know, if I can put a smile on their faces in heaven. I know I'm doing the right things because they were absolutely the best parents. We didn't have much I've been very lucky very fortunate. It's our pleasure to give back in every way that we can Bruce. Where did you grow up? Did you grow up on the east coast? I grew up on Long Island till I was twelve years old and Fort Worth Texas, graduated from Texas A and M and seventy seven and then moved to Colorado. I was in the meat packing. Business. Started real estate company integrated properties in Denver. And we've been in all kinds of different businesses that operations on I've spent a lot of time in Las Vegas running operations in having investments there, and but we're we're Colorado-based, and like I said a home in Laguna for twelve years, and I've seen that home for a few days over the last eighteen months. And that's I know that's the commitment. I've made to Atlantic City at sixty three years old, you know, to to to make the decision. Hey, this is what I wanna do. But everybody went along with being I'm very happy that I did that because it's a wonderful smaller community, and and the people remarkable and it's coming back. It's creating a wonderful foundation of itself in front of my eyes. I love Atlantic City. My first experience with Atlantic City, we flew to Manhattan, we're gonna stay in Manhattan for four days, and then Atlantic City for three days, and I got up with my my buddies, and we're gonna check out of the hotel and we dragged our luggage. Four thirty blocks to go get the bus goes to Atlantic City. Right. So we get on the bus and that bus make stop after stop and stopped right in front of the hotel that we're staying in thirty blocks that we could have just picked it up there. And we and I should have known that. My luck wasn't with me. You don't have. It's just a it's a it's a wonderful place. I love it, you know. And and listen, please, you know, when you get on the east coast, you come visit us, you know, it's an incredible property. We make it much better. We find to make it more welcoming families. It's children Eleni. Of course, the gamblers grouping convention, but you come to you and say, look, I just couldn't property were very very honored to be the owners of the property. Well, I love it and every room. I've I've seen that hotel before every every room in that hotel has a spectacular view of the coast does the tower sits perpendicular to the ocean, right, and it absolutely does. You're right. Did you guys get hit by the hurricane that came through their couple years ago? So when sandy came through had nothing to do with the property, but no sandy did, you know, billions of dollars of damage in and around Atlantic City, New jersey, and and it was a horrific event for people. It's interesting you bring that up the property. There was no damage was a little bit of water and one of the main entrances down below but the property was stood the hurricane remarkably. Well, but it's interesting that so many people remember sandy, and when I made the decision to do this. And so many of our team members, they said, you know, Bruce, when the when the hotel is full, you know, we have rooms on our house, but people convinced come stay in our house because remember five years ago six years ago, what it was like when hurricane sandy. Yeah. It's a remarkable thing, you know, the human spirit, and when when you badly works the right way, it's a remarkable thing to to watch. I think you're. Right. And and I hope you accept this. As a compliment d I I consider you the Steve Wynn of the east coast Steve Wynn win when the big recession hit he tried to keep every one of his employees's, even though you know, all these were hemorrhaging money. He his employees where they were the most important thing to him. Yes. There were many many things he did. Right. And his right hand for thirty five years. Much shore is is is a dear friend of mine, and he's been very helpful in in helping me, you know, and and and guiding me and giving me some advice. So I absolutely agree with you and take this as a as a compliment, your father is one of the people that I absolutely enjoyed as I was growing up in my life. I want you to know that I'll tell him that he played in Atlantic City about fifteen years ago and the people in Atlantic City man, they treated him like he was Frank Sinatra. He had never been tell him to cut you tell him to come and he can stay with us. And I'll treat them like uncle, Tim. I want you to know that. Okay. Well, he only has one request though that you give his oldest son at twenty thousand dollar credit line, by the way that won't be a problem. Okay..

"In Atlantic City, Ron with Mark. George. Hi, mark. Well, I have a unique perspective on on President Trump being crew Atlantic City and having worked for him and with them. But the Scarborough thing is a specific reason that I called it, of course, now everything relates to Trump Trump world today in the news cycles is everything does about Trump, which is a political junkie for me. It's fantastic coming out of entertainment that it's been for the past couple of years. In addition to the fact that I really love what the turn these doing for America today. I feel fantastic. With that being said, we here in Atlantic City or used to him in a way that the rest of the nation apparently is not a lot of what is going on in the way that he handles things. Seen it in real action. Okay is real time. You know over a several year period when he actually ended up having at one time, I think four casinos. And then there was the battles the battles. Well, he had with Steve Wynn. You know? So so our experience with him is. You know, somewhat more than what the rest of America the world has. So we've seen him in action for quite some time. Now with that being said what you love the car. You hate the guy which I might add in Atlantic City. He was hated and why year because of a lot of things that took place within his bankruptcies and so on so a lot of people around here did not like him. Okay. How whatever I can tell you right now. The tide has turned beyond one hundred eighty degrees. Okay. Asking you to appreciate the fact that it was a regular thing. Always for years on the radio here in Atlantic City on talk radio. Right. So so we we understand him in a way that may be most of the nation and most of the world doesn't when it comes to the foibles when it comes to the women in addition to that the whatever I mean, I was limousine driver for a while. I mean, I've done a lot. He's a cabdriver worked in the casino industry. Worked in seven of the casinos from the beginning. Okay. What do you know about him? Then what what are you know, about this man is different than anything? Ever. I've seen in the business world. He's twenty four seven person number one. Okay. I mean, you could think that the man never curse. Of course. He's got right. But he never stops. Never ever gives up. He never gives in. He's never wrong. And unfortunately or fortunately, most of the time. He's right. All right. So these are things that we're used to with him we've dealt with now. You get a guy like we got. We have a lot of calls. Yeah. Get to your point on scammer Scarborough. He's a low life and thinks this day. Did he's a conservative swear to God. I used to go. All that steady and regular basis. He is a conservative. He came in on the Republican Gingrich, whatever he's one of the guys from the whatever the whatever back in the one we took over congress back, then he's a fantastic conservative Republicans. But Donald Trump is that it added that and he's still a conservative to demand is sick. Okay. That's Scarborough catcher Jorge just because we have to move on. Interesting. He did come in. And the Gingrich wave that makes sense to me to let's go to Chris in Detroit. Chris you're on with Mark. How you doing tonight? Meal. You are you commenting on my weight. It's just one person here. Not guys. I'm just giving you. I'm giving you a hard time. It's Mark is they're filling in for the guys. Now, they're not a worry at all. I found it real interesting. I know completely mind blowing steam that tweet for Scarborough today, I was actually shocked and the reason for that is not because you know, I thought he was Republican or conservative values that anyone can. The record and say that it's definitely not the case. You know, he does hype behind, you know, the Republican party from time to time when he. Conveniently however been a guy who at least on the surface in the past. He's been able to okay. A lot of things on the on a laugh. The democrat party and make some criticism of you know, what they're doing and how they're getting things wrong. And what I found credibly poetic was back in. I think this is the day after the point sixteen election. He went on a rant on his. About how all of these journalists and the times and the pollsters. The all turn a blind eye average, everyday Americans. And you know, how we said that that's a teams, and you know. Yep. Is that you know. Here's different and insanity. Their tones of agree with you. And you take into consideration only showed that he is not someone practices. What he preaches because what he did today was just revert to. You know day and this moment of morning. You know, a political talking point. And I just couldn't believe it. But you know, what I should. The colder before this has really interesting things to say, and you know that. Molly. You're coming in and out. There's some echo or something. I don't know if it's an echo there. But I got your idea. And yeah, it was a disaster for a lot of people what he said and the meaning nine eleven let me know what you think eight six six ninety redeye.
