Tapirs Help Reforestation Via Defecation
"The Amazon rainforest is under threat. Fragmentation fires and climate change are just a few of the hazards in natural intact forests. Animals that eat fruits helps to keep the forest in a constant state of regeneration since they deposit seeds in their droppings as they travel could the same process help restore areas degraded by fire. So data tapers walking around. They study area and day. Of course boop a lot because they are huge adverse. Lucas Paolucci. From Brazil's Amazon Environmental Research Institute so our team ask whether they could be walking around and eventually helping to reformist is area through there. Oops and of course the seeds that are with it. Tapers are the largest terrestrial mammals left in the Amazon rainforest. Imagine a five hundred pound pig but with a small elephant trunk on its face. That's sort of what a low and taper looks like the species is threatened with extinction but certain areas still have quite a few tapers roaming around using a combination of camera traps aerial imagery and field observations. The researchers measured the density and abundance of taper droppings in three different parts of the rainforests over the course of seven years. One test plot was experimentally burned each year. One was burned every three years and one was left completely intact. We saw that they were according to times more often in disturbed areas named the unburned plots and also person times mar seeds. That's a lot of seeds extrapolating from the data intact. Forests a single taper deposits. Almost three thousand seeds in a single hectare or ten thousand square meters but in Bern areas the animals dropped nearly ten thousand scenes and while researchers don't know how many seeds can germinate after a trip through a taper as digestive system fewer than one percent of such seeds appeared damaged. Potatoes are just part of the equation. After they do a number two done Beatles get to work forming the SCAT into balls. Before burying them seeds included Paolucci is now looking at whether Dung beetles like the taper. Deng are also more abundant in recently burned areas. Putting tapers to work doing what they already do. Best is perhaps the cheapest method for large scale tropical forest restoration. Such renewal is critical for carbon sequestration. Biodiversity Preservation and much. More tapers won't do the job alone but their work would help. Lower the price tag.
Healthcare Spotlight: Marie Colinet
"Maria stood out to me as a great example of a woman who succeeded despite the fact that society posed so many obstacles and in the process she thought outside. The box broke the mold and save lives. She came up with Sir really creative solutions this episode originally aired in September but just like lots of modern healthcare workers. Marie often doesn't get the credit. She deserves so she's perfect. Figure to highlight again in honor of the many people putting their lives on the line for us today during the Cova. Nineteen pandemic now.

We're taking five minutes to tell the stories of women from throughout history and around the world who you may not know about but definitely should each month is themed and this month as kids around the world or at least in the northern hemisphere head back to school. We're talking about stem inist at that. I mean women who did incredible things in the fields of science technology engineering or math. Today we're heading back to sixteenth century. Europe are seminar improved childbirth methods and was an incredibly talented surgeon. Let's talk about Marie Colonna. Marie was born in Geneva. Switzerland in fifteen sixty. Her father was a printer growing up. Marie wanted to become a midwife. She was interested in the field of medicine from an early age and sixteenth century woman. That was her only option for practicing medicine on July. Twenty fifth fifteen eighty seven. Maria married Wilhelm fabry. A brilliant surgeon often called the father German surgery. We'll homeless the top German surgeon of his and he taught me how to perform in the operating room. He said the student quickly outpaced master. Marie showed natural talent and surgery at a time when it was unthinkable for a woman to take part in session important masculine endeavor. The couple traveled and worked in Switzerland Holland and the Rhineland before settling in Bern during this period Marine Wilhelm had eight children though only one outlived their mother. Marie treated many patients on her own. And by her husband's side she regularly assisted her husband and performing minor surgeries. She pioneered the modern caesarian section which employed a new more medically sound method. Prior to Murray's work c-section techniques hadn't changed since the time of Julius Caesar. Marie also invented the practice of using heat for dilating and stimulating. The uterus childbirth that not only increased the ease of childbirth also lowered the risk of certain complications. It's important to note that childbirth is very dangerous proposition at the time. In addition to being an obstetrician Marie was well known for a new form of Treatment.

"E. S. T. ziprecruiter dot com slash. Gabfest Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire big doings at the Supreme Court. We have the president attacking too liberal justices saying they shouldn't be allowed to rule at any cases involving him. You have the court deciding to way into a monumental discrimination case involving adoption by same sex couples if Jimmy Thomas the wife of a Supreme Court justice engaged in a secret campaign. Her secretive campaign. I should say to purge the federal government of people who oppose anything that Donald Trump wants to do. And now we have a huge piece forthcoming from you. Dr Emily Bethlen. Jd about the dangerous threat that Neil gorsuch poses to traditional jurisprudence. What the heck is going on is the court emily. So I mean I think the jockeying you saw this week is trump's usual preference for offense versus defense so Laura Ingram made it sound as if soda or had you know personally attacked the trump administration. She had not done that so to my are wrote like a straight up descend from the conservative justices allowing the trump administration to get an emergency. Stay so the public charge will go into effect. This of course is the rule that makes it a lot harder for immigrants to get green cards and permanent status and so tomorrow was just saying hey government you keep running to us for emergency stays essentially leapfrogging over the normal processes in the lower courts. Where courtier the merits of the case before their decided in before we hear an appeal and Sotomayor was saying look? We don't grant exceptions like this in most executions. Now we're granting them over and over again for the trump administration. The Standard here is supposed to be really high. It's supposed to be irreparable harm. That's what you have to show to get this kind of emergency. Stay and she is worried about kind of basic fairness so she was making a really like not standard. Because it was I mean she was making a big deal of this argument but it was very much within the legal bounds and trump claimed otherwise for his own purposes. Perhaps because of this story about Ginny Thomas which was lou leading to calls for justice. Thomas Ginny. Thomas is has been accused himself so I think there's just a way in which politicizing the court has become a kind of weapon for trump. I mean we've seen him go after judges repeatedly and this was like the latest version of it. Beauce is trying to come at this from a different angle by taking seriously the big ideas behind the conservative ascendancy at the Supreme Court which remain originalism. And Textual Ism these theories about how you do interpretation originalism is supposed to be about how the constitution was understood at the time it was written and ratified and text. Realism is a normal law. You're just look at the words on the page you don't think about the context or the purpose or the consequences of a ruling and justice. Gorsuch is the latest on sales person at the court has a new book where he was really pushing the ideas in a very absolutist way and I just wanted to go back and look at their lineage. Look at how they'd changed over time. And what interested me. The most were all the criticisms from conservatives about the inconsistencies with which these theories are applied. And did you come down to a feeling about than see Because the law has I think a little more Early should say it has cartilage in isn't as brittle as some of the breakages that we see in politics for example the total abandonment of any concern about debt and deficits Which were the guiding obsession for Republicans under the Obama Administration is just gone completely And which which As we talked about Momeni mentioned last week and that was one of the the star by which everybody piloted their boats. So so as you look at this Do you find you know the normal cartilage that's required in any belief system or any regimen for analysis. Or did you find that? It's become more used or was used in his last now as a as a pretext for saying any old thing you want sill. Yeah that's a those are good parallels a good question. I mean I would say this like every theory over time tries to absorb the criticism and then becomes like more vague in general as a result and kind of loses some of its power. And I think that's part of what you see with originalism and textual ISM and I that I like. I wouldn't hold that against the theories except gorsuch and other promoters of these theories claim that this is their call to superiority. They're saying we're the only judges who do things objectively or as Gorsuch says in a value neutral way and increasingly gorsuch has claimed to be an absolutist about this. He says he applies originalism in every case about the constitution. So that's just not really possible because there have been so many layers of law that have been added over the centuries by the Supreme Court. That if you have any interest in the Supreme Court's precedents the laws just moved legions leagues away from the actual constitution. I mean one thing I was thinking about this piece. Is that when we talk about the constitution? It sounds like we're talking about the document the taxed but actually we mean constitutional law. We mean all the things have been added to it over the years and the method of originalism. This idea that all you're going to look at is what people understood the words to mean in seventeen eighty seven or eighteen sixty eight though most conservatives. Don't pay as much attention to eighteen sixty eight. That idea is very recent. It's modern it's from the nineteen eighties. That's not really. How the Supreme Court did its work for centuries in any meaningful way and I I feel like. There's that's the inconsistency that matters to me. It's that you have a theory that is necessarily selective but then you don't admit that you don't say what your theory for making exceptions is and then I think you're vulnerable to the standard intellectual critique about theories which is like. Okay well if you're going to pick and choose when to apply it. Why is your method anymore consistent or objective than anyone else's is it better to think of this than as originalism as increasing the gravitational pull of the Constitution on the debate? Which is you know it. You're calling yourself in originalist but really what you're trying to do is just Use that as a as a bigger part of your argument for why something should go one way or the other and while you can never reach total originalism. You're trying to be you know asymptotically if that's even a word whereas you get as close as possible using you know a defensible set of principles that are that are founded in the original idea of the constitution. I mean I think that's for sure that claim but I think you can also look at this and say this is really about politics and that is sort of an obvious point to make. But it's very much not the point that the the originalists say they're making right like they say they're separating law from politics and if in fact there are theory is not consistent or they're doing the originalist research into history badly which is another problem In some of these recent cases like the Second Amendment Big originalists victory from Justice Scalia a decade ago and then justice. Gorsuch is biggest opinion. Which is this More obscure case called US versus Gundy. But it's GonNa come back because that's all about Congress's regulatory power and ability to delegate policy-making federal agencies like the whole administrative state if you're not doing it in the way that you say that you're supposed to be doing it again. It's this that's the kind of question here like you can say that. It's a set of defensible principles. But what is it really getting you in the end right I was? I was looking like the effective benefit. But what you're saying is that they're using this claim that it's separate from politics as a as a way to say and therefore what we what we say because we've been able to divine that separation is that much more powerful and just and right so they're using it both in its own terms but then also to make themselves bigger in in any given argument because they've somehow been able to separate themselves from politics. Yeah exactly and just to make one more point here. I mean every judge looks at the words on the page of a law like that is a normal thing. You're interpreting a statute judges don't ignore what's there in front of them and when you're interpreting the constitution they consider the meaning that the founders thought they were giving it. The question is whether you do that. Exclusively in a way that then is supposed to wall you off. From considering the purpose of law or the underlying consequences of your ruling an so justice briar who is a real pragmatist on the court and has really been trying to warn that this tax dualism and originalism crates very wooden understanding of the constitution. He shows up in my piece to be like. Hey wait a second. What are we really doing here? And my peace starts out with justice gorsuch in the case about gay and transgender employment rates before the cord in October like faced with the the real implications of his own textual ISM which would seem to be ruling in favor of the gay and transgender plaintiffs. He asked a question about consequences. Claiming suggesting there would be massive social upheaval from ruling in favor of these plaintiffs and I tried to use that to show the difficulty of sticking with the theory when it leads you to results which presumably you're not inclined to And so that's going to be really interesting. Test for justice gorsuch emily. Let's close actually when we as we talk about consequences with this big case that the Supreme Court is now going to hear about foster care in Philadelphia. What what is the issue here? Why is it such a big deal? Yeah so Philadelphia looked at the way in which Catholic charities was participating in its foster care network and said you know what Catholic charities. You're discriminating against gay couples. You're not placing kids with them. And so we're going to leave you out of our network we're GONNA enforce our antidiscrimination law and say that if you're not going to accept gay couples were not going to have you as part of our foster care and the court is taking a challenge from Catholic charities so this is a really big issue. It's sort of like the masterpiece cake shop case from Colorado about the baker who didn't want to be a wedding cake for a gay couple but in a lot of ways. It's bigger than that because it's about you know foster care and implication adoption and it's really about this question like can state decide that its desire to prevent discrimination in this case against gay people matters more than including religious organization which says that it's religious values. Don't allow it to place kids with gay people. So it's like a direct conflict about a very important and contested issue and It's now on the docket for next term so next fall presumably the court will hear argument. Is there any way to be in the foster care system? That's outside of the government. I mean could you could Catholic. Charities Participate in foster care but in some way that is separate from the state of Pennsylvania City Philadelphia working with them. I don't think there is intrinsically government. Yeah I mean. Adoption agencies can be private but the foster care network comes from the government like there has to be a finding of abuse and neglect and a placement. So I don't think so. And presumably if the if the Catholic Charities Prohib- prohibition was we will not place with mixed race couples or we won't place with Asian American couples like that would be like no. You can't do that. That'd be pretty clear right right. I mean this is where you know. I think we've talked about this on previous shows but during the civil rights era we did not see court. Say Okay you know lunch door counter. You don't have to your your business open to the public but you actually don't have to let black people is eating your lunch counter because you have a religious objection somehow to you. Know interracial mixing like No. We did not accept that defense and so I think the parallel you're raising is a big problem for these religious organizations. They make the argument that their beliefs about you know. Lgbt people are I would say like LGBT activities are different but the question is whether it really is different right but what is the status of LGBT? People and discrimination federally. I mean there's there's a obviously there's a right to marriage but discrimination is federally permitted still in some context. Yes and that's actually relates back to this employment case. I was talking about a minute ago. So there are. There is not a federal law that provides a blanket protection against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation throughout the country. It's missing explicitly in the employment context and so this case was talking about is about whether the provisions in title seven the Federal Employment Law. That prevents discrimination on the basis of sex. The question is whether that applies just on. Its face tells you T- people. Some states have erected antidiscrimination laws on the basis of sexual orientation for situations like the one. That's Philadelphia is grappling with and now. The question is whether those the court is going to allow states to continue to enforce those laws task. One quick final question on this. Where does the court and the Conservatives generally stand on religious practices by non favored religions and cults? So they are. There's a lot of move to stand up for Christians and Jews and Christian practice in Jewish practice and defending their practices. But where do they stand on the religions that are out of the mainstream and things that they might WanNa do that contravene some federal law? Are they as as a adamant about protecting that? Well I mean there were. There was a couple of cases last year. Do you remember this about whether people on death row could see a chaplain and one of the people who wanted to do. That was a Muslim person. Asking to see any mom and the court the Conservatives on the court treated that person differently from the person who was Christian who is trying to see clergy. Yes no I think yes really and so. I think what you are seeing right. God raises questions about consistency God that's ooh gets my goat as I say. Let us go to cocktail chatter when you are celebrating the arrival of the leap year..

"Harvey Weinstein. The hard Hollywood producer was convicted of two out of five felonies. He had been charged with by New York. State jury convicted. Sorry by the state or a he was not charged by the New York state. Jury he was carted off to a hospital unit at rikers island. He now faces up to twenty nine years in New York State Prison. He also is going to go on trial or he's been charged also in California with other sexual assault crimes the conviction maybe closes or advances one chapter in the most appalling of the metoo stories or one of the most of the metoo stories. The one that started it all when the New York Times. The New Yorker published stories detailing allegations from women who had kept quiet about Weinstein's assaults over many many years because of his power in Hollywood. So Emily it is very unusual actually to get a conviction in a case like this so even though he was acquitted of three charges including probably the most serious charge faced. It is unusual to. Why were they able to get this? Yeah so I mean what was unusual about this case in terms of its potential weakness for prosecution was that the two Women whose cases were going to like support the rape and sexual assault charges. The main complainants or witnesses. They had both had relationships with. Weinstein after these sexual assaults in which they were emailing or texting in a friendly way they had slept with him afterward in a way that they acknowledged was consensual. They continue to seek him out and so usually when prosecutors have evidence like that. They don't have what they think of as a quote perfect victim and they worry that juries are going to hear all that and think. I don't believe you like if something was so bad. Why did you go back to this man? The problem of course with that kind of skepticism about rape allegations is that a lot of times cases especially involving a powerful person Weinstein. There are just like more complicated than ad and victims may absolutely have the experience of being raped that they describe but then try to kind of move beyond that or bury it or stifle it in some way because they fear this person or they're currying favour with them and hoping to have some kind of more successful transaction effectively and in the past prosecutors have just been so usually unwilling to touch these kinds of cases. There is a law. Professor named Deborah Turcoman writes about this a lot and she has written about what she calls the credibility discount. The idea that there are just so many stages along the way when people report rape to the police or when prosecutors review a case in which they just discount the credibility of victims. Especially if there's this kind of reason to disbelieve them in the Weinstein case I think partly just because of the enormous publicity and you know huge just like upswell of region fury from Hollywood from everywhere at Weinstein you saw the New York Manhattan. Da's office go ahead anyway and then you saw jury believed these women. There was supporting testimony from a few other women which was probably helpful. Although David as you describe the most serious counts the jury acquitted on or didn't convict and that involves some of the support testimony. So I think it's a really interesting development legally in terms of whether there are other cases like this. That are more likely to be prosecuted. I'm not sure and then just just the resulting itself. I mean we were talking about one of the most powerful people in Hollywood who is now in jail and that is just like an incredible fall from from grace commits. It's shocking to Harvey Weinstein trump. Tower Tower Emily on your on the point about the why these cases are so hard to convict it. Is I really get Gets Very Mentally Complicated. Because when you think about most crimes for which people are convicted. There's usually like things which are very specific hard evidence of you steal money from a bank and money appears on your bank account having stolen or you steal an object. You have the object if you commit a murder and you've you've the blood is found all over your body. In some of these sexual assault and rape cases that evidence exists and the ones that are easiest to convict you. You have a rape kit. You have evidenced physical harm but lots of them. It's not necessarily events Ram bigamous. It's just that the there isn't the definitive way to show that the events as one person says they occurred occurred. Because you if you don't have camera evidence we don't have necessarily physical evidence if you and if you don't have a pattern of behavior by the accused no here we had a pattern of. We hear we had a pattern. Behaviorally absent a pattern of behavior. Right absent a pattern of behavior. It's hard to imagine if Weinstein had been charged with one of these counts in a total vacuum. You you you can imagine like nothing would have happened and so it does mean it does mean these cases are not quite like they. They end up. They occupy different space than a lot of other criminal activity. That people are charged with because of that a lot of times. They just don't leave behind evidence in the way that others the other things. Leave behind evidence. You're of blurring two things here. So there's the question of corroborating evidence and sometimes in situations where people know each other and there's a rape allegation there is corroborating evidence like the victim went and told a friend or they're like upset emails tax or just other evidence that comes into play. We didn't have that kind of cooperation. In this case and I think you're right that if there had just been one charged isolation it would have been really difficult to convict Weinstein. But then there's this other question of pattern of behavior and even a pattern in which someone uses sex as a way of dominating less powerful people and then continues to do that in a way that like allows them to get away with the abuse and I think in Weinstein's case that was overwhelming. I mean it was both very present to the jury and the testimony from these supporting witnesses but also in the court of public opinion like it's just really hard to fat like that is how we have so much evidence against Harvey Weinstein. Some of it barred by the statute of limitations but very much present. And so maybe we're at a point. Where if you have one of those forms corroborating or supporting evidence you can bring a successful prosecution in some ways cases like the bill cosby case in that sense. Do you think I I just WanNa make a point and then I have a question for you. John like I asked this of Jodi Kantor when she was on our show a few months ago and she of course. It's the one of the reporters who broke the original Weinstein story in the times and wrote She said about that. Experience making the the grossness of Weinstein I think is really Germane to this case. I think that a lot of what has made this the the emblematic as the one that people have gotten most attached to is that he is a disgusting looking person he made any seems to be a disgusting person also. He is morally disgusting person which is more relevant. But he is a person who people find physically repellent and with these actresses who are whose beauty as part of their you know their business and and I just think we. I think it's telling the resist. These drawings he's photos of Weinstein which then reemerges court drawings of the terrible acne on his back and his the the weird way his genitals look and they were. These were people are panning. These around is like look at this disgusting person and I think we just need to be cautious about putting too much on. The A lot of people are ugly in their soul who are not physically repellent. There are lots of people who are who are disgusting and horrible criminal. Who Look like Angels John? Do you think that this puts a cap on me to the conviction move forward in any way And the represent some something that Is important and will cause behavior to change or is this just a single anomalous case because we haven't had really other criminal convictions? I don't think coming out of the. Doesn't that predate it? I guess anyway got done. Sorry Yeah Yeah. I don't know I mean I do one thing that I do feel And I'm I feel like Ivy League Pete. Buddha judge Giving an answer on the lived black experience. It's a little. It's well out of my well out of my range however having said that gave the answer that at least Michael Bloomberg should have stumbled towards In the debate when he talked about you know the the what. It's like to be an African American even in America's culture today but so would that preface the the the women who were not even directly related to Harvey Weinstein. But obviously for those who were and who may not have even been the target of his most Putrid Salts the sense of justice and the fact that the system can however like work and that there are remedies for men who behave this way. And to your point. David it may be even more the case that men who look Beautiful on the outside Are able to get away with more of that. Evil behavior Just the sense for all of the women who have had to to Put Up with some version of this in their life. I can imagine there is some feeling that that that as imperfect as the new world is that there is a greater Amount of justice. When something like this happens I think that's again. I'm I may be totally out of my lane and emily will correct me quickly if I am but the second thing is I also feel like the danger here there several but one is okay. This is done. He was this monster. the monsters in his box. And you know some people. Don't some trainings and we all watch what we say? But it's taken care of. That's the first problem. The second problem is that you start to get People basically not going to root causes and thinking you know there's kind of where the the backlash sets in and then people say you know the Me To kind of gone too far. There's there You know there are cases in which they're not they're not full Harvey Weinstein's and they've been lumped in with him and that's not fair and that that that there's more of that that's a part of a conversation now and I don't know what this verdict does with respect to that but I feel like the conversations about about the complexity of this Are Not are not as not as strong as I'd like them to be. I actually emily. That leads me to question for you. I think it was in New York magazine. Talked to a bunch of the women who had made some of the more Publicized me to accusations and looked at their life now year two three years after that and it hasn't been great it is not something where you you make accusation and your lionised a hero and and your life changes for the good and anything like that happens. It has been extremely difficult for people. And you also have the case of the president who has been credibly charged with literally dozens and dozens of sexual predatory sexual assaults all kinds of disgusting sexual behavior involving violence and bullying and pressure and coercion yet. He has been unscathed by the women who've made accusations have been heavily scathed. So do you think that actually the situation for women who want to come forward? Who have been victims has changed? I mean I think it's really hard. You pay a price by becoming someone who's part of your identity is that you're making these allegations like you have to talk about serious private matters. They're still some stigma. Attached that and being a witness in a prosecution is like a big undertaking You know I also read that story thinking about all of those problems. I do think though that there is a deterrent effect. In convicting someone like Harvey Weinstein. I mean if you are a man sexually harassing or assaulting people in the workplace. I hope you are scared right now and thinking twice about doing it to have someone so powerful be brought down like that should be a really clear warning to people. That's different from the kinds of you know wrote trainings. That we've all gotten used to doing like you know in our inboxes. I think this is a different a different kind of sounding of the alarm. I would just note that there are four old white guys running for right now. Donald Trump Michael Bloomberg Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Three of them have stains on them..

"Think they need to hope for a strong clear showing either for Biden. Or one of the Non Bernie Sanders Lane opponents which they can claim is either support in the quote unquote real part of the party which is to say the more diverse part of the party coalition four at at least somebody who's not sanders whether they want to go away saying it's for for Joe Biden or not That's another matter but the idea if you're if you're trying to make the case against Bernie Sanders and you're in establishing Democrat. You want at least the idea out there that basically he has a ceiling that the majority of the Party is actually against him. It's just the vote is split and that The more we learn about him. The more problematic He becomes as a candidate. And what you don't want is for him to get to the general election and this closet full of troubles to come bursting open and become daily weaponry for Republicans which will hurt not only sanders. But then all the down ballot candidates. So you need somebody to do well. Then you need a series of these videos from the past or issues that he has To come out and then for him to miss play one of them. I thought in the debate. He was actually very good. At diffusing the attacks against him. Making the case for his economic argument. wither under the scrutiny. The way other candidates have So if you're in the Anti Bernie case you want you want him to wither under scrutiny Because it just reaffirms that idea that once he gets tagged in the general he won't be able to handle it. So you're either aid hoping that you create the The permission structure for a for a by nor Biden candidate to continue to rise in the future contests or you begin the narrative for contested convention in which Sanders arrives. Just with the plurality. It helps that he wrote the rules there. That would potentially undo him as Elizabeth. Warren pointed out. And you would hope. Then that they're just sort of the empire would strike back In some kind of extremely ugly but nevertheless convention wrangling. None of those. You asked what would be good very good.

"I mean it's a little early because he hasn't even been on the ballot yet but he's not doing himself any favors these debates. I suppose you could argue that. That's not what he has to offer and that his running on competence especially at this moment. When Corona virus is threatening the world could still resonate. Lots of people are going to see his ads and not see his worst debate clips. I do think though that his notion that he needed to be the moderate alternative as opposed to building up somebody else in the race. It just seems incredibly hubristic right now. He's just so bad at making his case to mean it's just he really. I mean look debates whatever but it just seems to me case fell better. I don't think go ahead and I just think hubristic is the wrong word to use to describe someone who was three time mayor of New York City one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country and one of the best philanthropists in the country. And WHO's made incredible investments in politics? It's like that Kristie hubristic or something like that to say you should run for president. He is doing a poor job at the retail part and the presenting himself to the public. But I don't think you can intrude. Say It's hubristic. I think you can say he's a bad candidate. It's not hubristic. We'll let me on. I'm so unconvinced. By like he made tons of money he ran New York City. He did some terrible things and some good things mayor and like that means you should just trump into this very crowded field because he has a lot of trump in he has. Yes yes a lot of money which is one of his strength. Other people have strength which is their great rhetoric. His strength is he earned a lot of money. Credible businessman can deploy has proven that he can deploy usefully like pop. Money is a tool and a weapon and politics. And that is one of Bloomberg's you know it's the biggest piece of artillery as any by using it is not good jobs and I mean this is just like this is if the main thing he has going for him is his kazillion dollars and the fact is he practically that on the base stage that he quote bought. I guess he didn't quite finish the verb. But almost you know the Democratic thins in Congress in two thousand eighteen like no. This is not the road that the Democratic Party needs to be going down. No no no First of all first of all you want presidents to be hubristic Russ. They won't be able to do the job. So that's that's the that doesn't but secondly Bernie Sanders isn't even a Democrat. And he's saying he should be the nominee of the Democratic Party so there's Hubris to go around for everybody here that's a separate claim from should be able to buy the election But whether he has the Stu- whether he has the standing to make the claim which seems to me to be a totally plausible claim. When she's not very good at making. Which is you may not like me on for reasons X Y and Z. But there's nobody here. By a factor of a lot who has ever run an organization of the size and complexity of the federal government and achieve the goals both in government business and private philanthropy that everybody here agrees need to be achieved facing considerable opposition. Both in all three of those realms and therefore has a track record that that demolishes anybody even on the stage and sends people presumably want to get the things done that they believe in attacking climate science Getting a handle on gun violence in America. It's not crazy to say. Previous success might have something to do with future prospects which is again separate and apart from whether you should be able to buy your way into that but whether he has the track record to be able to make the claim it seems to me has at least that so. There's this very awkward exp it this week for Sanders. Where an Anderson Cooper interview? He ended up defending statements. He had made a while ago. I can't even remember how long ago In praise of Fidel Castro's Cuba and universal literacy universal healthcare that Castro's Cuba supplied even as it was a brutal dictatorship. What is what. Is Sanders. Doing there Johnny or emily why. Why is he continuing to hold fast to this? What does he gain? Why can't he simply just do the smart thing and and say like yes you know. This was a an accomplishment but this is a brutal dictatorship of the war sort. And it's you know we should do everything in our power to have a change in and to be continued to have Cuba develop in a different direction. Why can't you just say the the thing that we all know to be true? Well I think for an authenticity I was For a lot of these policies before anybody else was kind of candidate it's hard to then start tailoring yourself too much to the current environment. So he so he can't completely divorce himself from and by the way he probably still believes what he essentially said. I think the what was confusing to me and again this is why his opponents are not very good. Is Somebody watching this? Why does any of this matter? Why does this matter about Bernie Sanders wise and marriner better country? Why important. It talked a lot about it at the debate. I don't know why it's important and if it isn't important subject to debate what's the right position to have. And why is that the right position to have until you define those things? It's a bunch of legs. Seem so attenuated from either. What people live in their daily lives or what they should care about in in their countries. So maybe I'm crazy but it felt like actually not that big a deal for him although I think the the one part of this obviously is that Cuba socialism communism that whole hairball Jonathan argument that Sanders is ability to diffuse those attacks in the general election. Context are a part of the electability rap against him. So I get this in a kind of political punditry part. But if you're an opponent attacking him I there. Nobody was doing a very good job explaining why this was such a big issue. Yeah I agree with all of that. I thought listening to him to his emphasis was off so he did say autocracy is bad. I'm not in favor of dictators. I GET THE FIDEL CASTRO. Was Bad for that reason but then he pivots so swiftly to talking about Kim Jong Hoon or whatever his preferred topic is you don't feel like he's really grappling with the problems in Cuba. I mean he's right about healthcare literacy Cuba but that doesn't mean that those were worth the tradeoff in freedom which was really a big cost that Cubans paid and for me listening. What I felt a little bit of my heart drop was that the strength of sanders is also his weakness like he is rigid. He has been saying the same things really passionately for forty years. Some of those things I think he's right are not radical and are about human rights and a vision of America of more equality and social cohesion. But he's not showing kind of flexibility at a moment when that would help him attract more support and when you feel like he could afford to do that right like his base is going to stay with him. And now he needs to signal that he's not such a purist that he'll get into office or or just become the Democratic nominee and be unable to make room for people who are close to him but not exactly standing in the same place as him last piece before we go so right now it does feel like Bernie Sanders is most likely Democratic nominee. And we would have a trump sanders general election. What are the things that that sanders opponents within the Democratic Party should hope for? What are the scenarios coming out of Saturday and then potentially of Tuesday that should give them hope possibility that there could be another outcome? It's interesting question In no particular order. I.

"Got Hello and welcome to the slate political Gabfest for February. Twenty seven th twenty twenty the burn baby. Burn edition. I'm David Plots of that was obscure one more week as David Watts out my last week the CEO about joining me from New Haven Campus University where she teaches in the law school and leave in your magazine. Hello Emily Hello. You made a fraud. Because I'm not teaching this semester. Oh well you do teach. They're generally in the fall if they reappoint me. It's all very year to year. Possibly unreal pointed emily young in limbo John Dickerson knows something about limbo being a good Catholic CBS's sixty minutes. Hello John Your New York. Hello on today's gap. Best is Bernie Sanders pulling away in the Democratic primary then the conviction of Harvey Weinstein and the State of Metoo and then turmoil at the Supreme Court has it become just an arm of a right-wing ideological movement. What is going on? With all these interesting things with justices and justices spouses and the cases. The justices are taking plus. Emily's got a big piece coming out and of course we'll have cocktail chatter and Gab fest listeners. We've got an exciting announcement. We live show coming up really soon. We are going to south by South West. We are going to be at south by on Tuesday march seventeenth at two PM so go to sleep dot com slash. Live to get tickets for that show or find out more information about that show. So if you're going to be in Austin for south by southwest. You should definitely come and see us again. Two PM Tuesday march seventeenth slate dot com slash live to come see us in Austin at South by southwest the South Carolina. Primary is Saturday. There seemed to be only two possible outcomes if you believe. The polling pundits both of them depressing to me. But that's just me. The first is that Bernie Sanders will continue his surge and win a plurality of a flat fractured field and continue to be in the pole position to win the nomination. The other is the Joe Biden. Who is pulled a very strongly in South Carolina over the past year finally gets a win thanks to his excellent organizing among African American voters and that could potentially change the dynamic of the race going into Super Tuesday which is just don Tuesday of next week so Emily how sanders creating a dominant position for himself in this race has he created dominant position for himself in this race. Winning right I mean that helps what Sanders has going for. Him is a very sticky base. It's not huge. It's not a majority of Democratic voters. Although in Nevada he was up in the forties percentile wise. So I guess that's close but it's really loyal to him and because the other lanes however you WanNa think about it our fractured because there are so many other candidates still vying to be the main moderate slash non Bernie Sanders alternative. His sticky base is enough and he is He has had the most passionate and stable and durable and think of what he's already endured by the way a heart attack A Very Compelling Challenger in Elizabeth Warren who believes a lot of the things that he believes also has a very strong argument which we should get to about why she would be more effective making those things happen and yet she has not grabbed his voters taken his voters away from him. He's benefited from this split field and from The inability of any of them to make intelligent criticisms of him. I mean so. For example I think going to Going at him on guns is just a total waste of time We change because I don't think I don't think people in the Democratic Party really think that comes down to it Bernie. Sanders is going to be weak on guns when it comes to when it comes to what President Ken do on the question of guns for example if he were you know if he suddenly came out and said he was against abortion rights that would be catastrophic deadly but the reason he's surging and the reason he has power in the party can't just be punctured by a single issue on guns and then he did. What was rather daft in the in the debate? Which is basically saying. Yeah that was bad vote. I shouldn't have you know I. I would I'd like to do that one over again. And here's been my record since then and then it was also an opportunity to remind everybody that everybody on the stage had taken bad votes including the person making the attack. Joe Biden who voted for the Iraq war so it felt like he diffused that expertly in the moment I think the most effective the most effective attack was the one those with Warren. Tried to launch When when she said basically we believe the same stuff. It's just I'll be far more effective and getting it done which is as we've discussed before. She's got a lot of evidence and a lot of talking points to make that case and then and then finally but but then she decided instead of while she went after Bloomberg You know like with every possible weapon in the drawer with an instinct for the jugular her. Her basically she dropped her attacks against Sanders for whom? She has an instinct for the capillaries as they say so. It's an interesting point. The sort of combining points guys made where where it's that. The rest of the field is so crowded that no one can come together. It's so crowded and yet no one's really satisfied any of the the other candidates so it's not simply that too many of them there too many of them and none of them seemed to capture the imagination at all. Which is I mean. Warren has captured my imagination. But that's that's just me. I keep thinking about a column that David Brooks wrote. I think last week where he said that Bernie Sanders was the Democrat who had a myth to offer meaning like a big story about what's wrong with America parallel or as powerful as the myth that Donald Trump offered in two thousand sixteen. This is David Brooks is argument and Brooks hates the sanders ideas about surfacing inequality and really talking about class struggle and class war but I read dot Com and I thought yeah. I think he's right. I think there's a way in which sanders because he is talking in. Such stark terms is really compelling to a lot of Democrats who feel incredibly frustrated with Donald Trump's vision of America and the other candidates. I think this doesn't really include Elizabeth Warren but some of the other candidates in being more moderate. Even though they're being more realistic about what they could actually accomplish. They just sound it. Sounds a little like weak tea when you hear their versions of it in the debates I always come back to the David. Plus theory politics is that you whoever's having the most fun wins and it's pretty clear that sanders and sanders. Supporters are having the most fun they are far and away the most fun. I want to talk about these two competing visions about what is actually happening in. The electorate one is which I think is the vision that democratic elites and the moderate Democrats have. Which is that. Sanders has not expanded a coalition. There was low turnout in Iowa and New Hampshire and even Nevada. The places where there's been higher turnout. It's not driven by his voters. In fact he's not turning out New People And that his the groups he is popular with young voters and very liberal. Voters are not highly expandable in the general election Then there's a alternative vision which Peter Beinart laid out and in a piece this week which is a. He is the most popular of the Democrats among all groups that has actual if you look at him among Democratic voters he is by far the the has the best favorability ratings and therefore he's actually the one who is most likely to get them out in November. Which of these John? These theories seems more credible weeds. I give me the first one again. I got I went. The first one is that that he's just winning. This this tight plurality motivated plurality and he actually isn't has no capacity to expand it in the general and because the groups were he is popular are not going to turn out in huge numbers and the general young very liberal people. Just don't there aren't a lot of them. Well that's been. And that's been traditionally the case. His argument is is that he's got as something special and be you know people thought it couldn't happen with Donald Trump. Either I think let me open it up a little bit larger. Which is that. This is both an electoral question. And it's a governing question because for him his success in although somebody who says you know elections don't help us with the presidency in his case. His presidency is based on his ability in the elections. Which is to build this enormous movement and so the electoral tasked is also the governing test. And so the electoral test. There's a debate about the rules at the Democratic convention. And if candidate arrives with the plurality You know how should that be handled and I guess the question we are seeing with the sanders candidacy goes to this electoral electability question. Which is is he going to turn out? A certain kind of voter in in trump areas than any other candidate would be able to and so therefore Therefore he has a special something that none of the other candidates have Or is and then there's also the question which is easy going to ruin all the down. Ballot races Because people won't turn out for and House candidates or because a lot of the House. Candidates are not going to sign up for. Medicare for all and in fact will have to distance themselves from him. If they're running in districts that are more than are more moderate but in the electoral test for him. It seems to me that one of the questions is and this goes to the behavior of his supporters which has been somewhat discussed. Is that if you can't convince a large number of people through methods that aren't overly doctrinaire if you if you have to just sort of treat people who don't immediately jump on the bandwagon as either dumb or Having bad faith perfidious or basically a heretic against all American values. You're just dragoon them into a position that doesn't seem to be a stable basis for the kind of political revolution that he's claiming is going to not only get him elected but then succeed in passing all of these things for which even there's not overwhelming supporting the Democratic Party. So it seems to me. It's a test. And the fact that some of his supporters have a mode of operating that different than the supporters of any other. Democratic candidate is a sign of of some difficulty in this argument of his that he's going to build a revolution. That's going to sweep the country. I think I think that's a key test for him. Which is a little bit beyond the scope of your question David? But it's it's It'll be interesting to watch to emily. One of the things that seem to have changed in the dynamic of the race since even just since last week is the well that Michael Bloomberg boomlet. That sure was quick. Is it going to turn out that Bloomberg Committed inactive homicide against Joe Biden by entering the race is it really ended up helping sanders which I think is the last thing he wanted to do or or is it too early to make any judgment about that? I mean it's a little early because he hasn't even been on the ballot yet but he's not doing himself any favors these debates. I suppose you could argue that. That's not what he has to offer and.

"Cooper discredit brings up this question from Bernie's Twenty thirty forty years ago. He's been saying the same thing for a long time. He defends these communist thugs these dictators who slaughtered their own people including Fidel Castro. And he says hey burn. You probably want to take back some of your support for Fidel Castro. Don't you what does Bernie do? He absolutely doubles down on it. Back in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s sanders at some positive things to say about the former Soviet Union and the sandinistas in Nicaragua and everybody was totally convinced. Areas explaining why the Cuban people didn't rise up and help the US overthrow Cuban leader. Fidel Castro. He educated the kids gave them healthcare totally transformed a society with very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba. But you it's unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know when Fidel Castro came into office. You know what he did. He had a massive literacy program. It's not a bad thing. Even though Fidel dissidents imprisoned and right and we condemn that yeah yeah we condemn that. But you know look Castro you can't say Castro's so bad what you telling me. Stalin was that bad he was he never did any good thing and his whole life come on. He kissed his mother one time. Come on. He's not he's a good guy. As Usual Bernie. Sanders is completely misrepresenting. History here but this is one of these lines that Communist useful idiots would have used since the sixties and certainly since the eighty s when Bernie was doing they say well when Fidel Castro took over instituted. A Literacy Program. Sort of not really. When Fidel Castro took over Cuba had a very high literacy rate. The image they want to present is that the Cuban people were totally ignorant. Didn't know how to read completely. And that's why they were oppressed and then this man of the People Fidel Castro comes in and teaches them to read. That's not what happened as early as the nineteen fifties well. Before Fidel Castro got into power. Cuba had a relatively high literacy rate is about eighty percent then. Fidel Castro comes in the institute's a literacy program but it wasn't to teach people to read relative the region..

"We're joined now by axios. Politics editor Margaret Talev. Margaret Bernie is now the front runner. It seems that Democrats have been taken by surprise by this. Why were they taken? By surprise? He was the number two person for years ago. He's got this fervent support. How did they get surprised by this? Well what Democrats are still Democrats `institutionalised and also Bernie Sanders is seventy eight ran. Wants and didn't succeed just had a heart attack so there are a lot of kind of conventional wisdom reasons why this could be difficult. He's a democratic socialist. You can say that's different than being a socialist but it's still has the word socialist in it and for a month. Democrats have been talking about a different kind of strategy a strategy about how could you kind of restore the status quo? And the electorate at least the primary and caucus electric does not seem to be a move for restoring the status quo. They seem to be in a mood to fight. Fire with fire to summon the emotion the energy and to a large extent the anger that helped sweep president trump into office but to summit from the other side of the ideological spectrum. And that's where we are. Now do we ever get to the point? Where those who espouse. Conventional Wisdom realized that it hasn't been true for a very long time comes presidential politics obviously not just trump's election but Barack Obama's election. I think that's a very valid point. I covered President Obama and before he was president. Obama covered the Obama Campaign. The first one in two thousand seven seven two thousand eight and at the time. Everyone thought he's halfway through retirement senator. He's African American no experience. How could he possibly beat the Clinton machine but two things were true number one? He was a very good candidate and number two. Hillary Clinton was not the greatest candidate and there was a number three. Which was that? People were reacting to the Bush administration and President Obama's message of opposing the Iraq war and and Kinda re-instituting this idea of multi-lateralism appeal to a lot of people. They wanted something hopeful and optimistic and and sort of the opposite of Bush in terms of foreign policy. If that rule holds true here there could be a pendulum swing. It is not necessarily driven by that hope and change message. It's more of like a raging change message like mad as hell not gonNA take it anymore but the Democrats version of that. I think one of the other calculus questions for strategy is that in President. Trump's case he came from the outside kind of took over there publican party and change what it means to be a Republican in America today. And so if you're a democratic institutionalists you're looking at what Bernie Sanders is proposing. And you're saying Democrats. Yeah and then. That's why partly why. There's so much resistance to that if it works like if succeeds and if he were to become elected and be president that it could fundamentally change what the Democratic Party stands for outside of Nevada where he did actually get a majority Iowa New Hampshire he. He got relatively small numbers compared to winners in the past. If there is a democratic establishment is there no democratic establishment? That can put some serious serious pressure on a couple of these candidates for example somebody to get out. It's not working. It's not happening. I don't know who they are. Is there an effort? There isn't the same like Centralized Council of elders that you might have thought of. It's funny because we have these really strong. They're still strong these two party systems but it's unclear who's in charge of either one of the parties. You know like is Mitch. Mcconnell in charge of the Republican Party or is Donald Trump Republican party is the DNC in charge of the Democratic Party. Obviously not so. Who's in charge of the Democratic Party? It's up for grabs. And that's why nobody wants to step back in case it goes to a contested convention but it's also why there's so much of a window for Bernie Sanders to take this momentum and run with it because there are a lot of voters who either have stayed home in the past or coming of age now and are more liberally oriented who just don't think the system works whether Democrats in charge or whether Republicans and chart. Let's talk about the second piece of this. Which is war Bernie Sanders to actually win and the actual legislative process? There's a let's go back. Conventional Wisdom Conventional Wisdom Democratic Party is Bernie is explicitly run against democratic establishment. Those Democratic senators. Those are the people he would need to help pass legislation where he elected. He is not considered the most popular person on Capitol Hill just from personality perspective in the way he works with other members including of his own party is there real reason to believe that were sanders elected president that he would struggle to get some of his major policy initiatives through either in whole or in part or do you look at the trump example and say Republicans were slamming Donald Trump. Until the minute he was elected president and suddenly everything he wanted he got and that's certainly what Bernie Sanders and his team would argue and Bernie Sanders became the nominee. And if he were to win and then if conventional wisdom defied and it didn't drag on all the lower ticket races so that the house and the Senate were wipe out that sort of thing so if all these pieces fell into place and if you had democratic control in one chamber and near Tie in the other chamber and you had a sanders presidency there are still very real questions about what kind of fundamental changes you can make to healthcare law what could happen with taxes. The argument of look what trump did it is worth considering but healthcare is one of these issues that the polling is a little confusing on because Bernie has been able to build on momentum and support even though he is talking about Medicare for all but a lot of voters say that they don't really understand what that means like the way he's proposing it would mean ending the private insurance system as it exists now which is what most Americans have a lot of people want to be able to keep their insurance so a wad of democratic incumbents are concerned that people don't want that blown up if people sweep Bernie Sanders into office. They might have to rethink the way they feel about it. There are a lot of unknowns but one thing we do know as we've seen with president trump is you don't have the unilateral power to do a lot of things you need. Congress's approval on the other hand. The sub caveat to that is if you're willing to push everything to the Supreme Court and cast fate to the wind challenge your own parties Orthodoxy and assume that your base will support you. You can push the envelope farther than most conventional politicians thank you can. Which is the bigger risk from your perspective the Democrats when it comes to electability Bernie becoming the nominee through the primary process becoming the obvious nominee or a brokered convention in which there's some other Democrat that's the nominee and Bertie supporters? Lose THEIR MIND. Stay home they're both very real risks and the one thing that. I think I can say with certainty that if you're president trump kicking back and watching all of this you like the circular firing squad for the Democrats compared with your other option which is early consolidation around one nominee who all the Democrats feel great about who poses an obvious threat to you which is interesting because that's exactly what the Clinton campaign thought for years. I think the answer to your question is we just don't know yet. A broker convention could be incredibly bad and tear up the Party. Bernie Sanders could move much closer to security this nomination by Super Tuesday. And if he does then the pattern of what happens between now and that convention may change also. I think we just don't know things have turned and begun to solidify accelerate in a way that you could not really have seen two weeks ago and everyone now on both sides of the scrambling to try to understand what that means. So you've been in past. I've been to a bunch of Convention. In the past. They are generally very boring affairs. A brokered convention would be much more interesting to get off the plane and not knows making the final speech. Margaret Talev politics editor for axios. Thank you so much for joining us.

Some brilliant thought some pressing question feel free to write that in and we'll try to get to it live on the show because there's a lot that happened over. The last few days namely the Socialist Revolution Sweeping Nevada with eight percent of precincts reporting eighty eight percent by the way Nevada caucus happened days ago. But because of this chaos in the Caucasus them we still only have eighty eight percent. Still Eighty eight percent reporting Bernie is crushing. He definitely one. Nevada Bernie got forty seven point one percent of the popular. Vote there for comparison. Joe Biden got less than half of that at twenty one percent. Buddha judge got thirteen point seven percent. Liz Warren got a pathetic nine point six percent and then everybody else followed afterward. That means that in the way the delegates breakdown Bernie got thirteen delegates. Joe Biden got to delegates Buddha. Judge got one and focus disc got zero. Nobody else got anything worth pointing out to Mike. Bloomberg was not in the Nevada caucuses. He also won't be in South Carolina and then he expects to sweep the Democratic nomination on Super Tuesday. When you have a a bunch of different states voting. We'll see how that goes. Joe Biden came in second place right but he's still in. They got to delegates. This should have been a pretty good state for him. It didn't play out that way. Joe Biden been saying that South Carolina is going to be his firewall South Carolina's happening next week. On the twenty ninth. He's he's lost. He's lost his massive lead. Okay he was. He was crushing it. In South Carolina according to the realclearpolitics average which is served the average of all the top polls. Joe Biden is now at twenty four point five percent in South Carolina Bernie's at twenty one point five percent. They're running neck and neck and South Carolina South Carolina. Joe Biden was supposed to run away with that state. Bernie wasn't supposed to be anywhere near him last October. Joe Biden was at thirty eight point. Three percent in South Carolina Bernie was at nine point seven percent so Joe Biden had a four x lead on Bernie Sanders there and yet after Iowa after New Hampshire after Nevada. All of a sudden lead has completely disappeared. Bernie's running second and really they're running neck and neck. This shows you an important rule in politics. It's a rule that I don't know that I've seen it violated in presidential politics and yet people always forget it. You don't win by losing the left and the right. Forget this rule all the time. Okay we see evidence of this repeatedly. No one learns a lesson Rudy. Giuliani tried this. Two thousand eight Rudy. Giuliani was running for president but he decided he was going to win. Iowa wasn't GonNa win the Hampshire wasn't GonNa win but he he's GonNa Win Florida so we're GONNA lose all the states but then route is gonna come out of nowhere and magically win Florida. That did not happen Mike Bloomberg same thing Mike Bloomberg now is saying okay. Well I'M NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA even be in Iowa or New Hampshire or Nevada were South Carolina but then the big states come along and I'm magically going to win it and Bloomberg has incinerated well over half a billion dollars at this point still unlikely that that happens. Never trump made this argument. Never trump made the argument in two thousand sixteen that conservatives should not vote for Donald trump because it would be better if hillary one and then you know some bad things happened. But then don't worry 'cause four years later we're GONNA come back better than ever but that wouldn't have happened. The incumbent always has an advantage in reelection and politics is based on momentum. It's not based on. Okay WE'RE GONNA strategically lose. And then you guys are GonNa win and get a bunch of victories for the next few years but really by losing. Were secretly winning. Because that way. Next time we're GONNA come back and we're going to clobber. You can't predict that that's not how it works. And by the way the you know the the people who make these bets. Wordy Giuliani Joe Biden. They're not very good at predicting the next six months. Forget about the next six years or so so Bernie Sanders right. Now has absolutely no business polling as well as he does and yet he's almost at the top of the charts. South Carolina is relatively conservative and heavily. Black in terms of the voting. Demographics Bernie is northeast socialist. Who had about two black supporters until the day before yesterday right? That was Joe. Biden's whole case when you really boil down Joe Biden's case for his nomination to its crassus level. His case was I can get black voters and no one else can in this race right now and yet. All of a sudden Bernie starts to do that. Why why is Bernie starting to pick up these diverse coalition? It's because people like to pick a winner and Bernie right now is winning so the delegate count for for everything. I WanNa Hampshire Nevada. Right now stands at Bernie Sanders Thirty Four. Buddha judge twenty-three Joe Biden eight. Liz Warren Eight Club your seven. So right now Biden. Who was the front runner is more or less tied with Liz? Warren and Amy Klobuchar. That's how badly he's doing in the big question that comes up for conservatives given all of that given the fact that Bernie right now is running away with the nomination should conservatives feel the burn. We'll get to that because there's some major debate going on but I have strong feelings about it. I I gotTa thank our friends over at fair-way Meat Market I. It is now been about twelve hours since I last eight fairway meat market because it is so so delicious that I had to have it for dinner..
SoftBank shares skyrocket in Japan after judge approves T-Mobile and Sprint merger
"Bancshares. They are soaring Japan overnight. who was the socks first opportunity to trade after the? US approval of sprints merger with T.. Mobile southbank for a major shareholder era of sprint. But don't expect the games to last long. The company reported results after the close in Tokyo. Third quarter profit was nearly wiped out by losses of one hundred Billion Dollar Vision Fund. If you've talked so much about that fun posting an operating loss of more than two billion dollars seal massive son defended banks performance saying the Vision Fund has gained about a three billion dollars on its investments since the beginning of this year so the losses for ending ending in December correct and. He's saying that it's been turnaround since then right also because of how they were again. The Vision Fund is marked right to whatever. That's the question question. However you know it was interesting because we interviewed Marcello the other day and night and we didn't get to talk about this the forty seven billion dollar valuation that we all talked about with we work our way working and we all talked about as as something that they were marking up themselves? Mini was one of these smoking on supply. kind of situations where you're just making up your numbers. They had never marked entire investment of forty seven. They marked sort of like the taxation there now five no no no no I know but that was not not the high water mark was really not saying we didn't lose forty ten billion dollars. No not even that that a majority of their steak was never. That was never that high so tell us the real numbers. It's it's a lot lower hobbies but it's just I think I think the headlines in how we've all described arrived I can understand is a little bit skewed.
Travel to Switzerland
"I like to welcome the show Zach best from Boston. Who has come to talk to us about Switzerland Zach? Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. That's for having me and before we get started. What is your connection with Switzerland? I I went to Switzerland in the summer of two thousand eighteen with the biology undergraduate summer school and that was at the University of Zurich. I want there to do research a issue for the summer and that I really I fell in love with country with Zirk and I decided to look for another program to go back in the summer of Twenty nineteen and I applied for the thinks with scholarship. I should and with that. I went back to the University of Zurich again. Right did immunology research for the summer. Very cool in. Why should someone on travel to Switzerland so I will say that Switzerland is beautiful? But there's a lot of places in the world that are beautiful so I think there's a few additional things that make Switzerland a very good destination to go to for And that is. It's a very small country. which makes it so that there's a very high density of locations to get to and it's very easy to get to all of them not just because there's a lot in their close together but because there's a lot of infrastructure in terms of trains and buses Nelson Cable car is to get too high up in the mountains even if you're not someone who hikes all the time you can still get to that a top the mountain view and then also it's very safe and while the main language is an English and I don't speak any German under French Italian I was able to refine with Dhaka or bt and asking people to speak in English? So I would say hey. Those are the reasons you should go there on vacation. Excellent and what kind of tenor are you recommending for us. Today I've played a little itinerary. Three of what. If you wanted to tour around the center of Switzerland's so this will go from Zurich to Lucerne to the interlocken region and to burn and I'll talk about day trips from each location so Salang mountains because primarily what I did there on. The weekends was hiking. So we're not going to talk about about necessarily in the matterhorn but stuff. That is more in the center of the country so that you could probably do it in one trip and easier and simpler fashion excellent. So you're starting us in Zurich. I'm assuming better plane connections there then promptly anywhere else in the country yes exactly start off with flying into Zirk Irk. And then I'll say that order. This itinerary doesn't really matter so you could go from Zurich Bern interlocking where he can go from Zurich Lucerne earn or. You could even do this as day trips from Zurich which for me. I was only traveling on the weekends because I had to do research in the lab during the week right and so all of my traveling leveling was as day trips which can get hectic it can lead to a long day but it's totally possible with the trains and you can definitely fit in in fact the second time I was there in summer two thousand nineteen. My mom can stay with me for a week and we saw the country by doing day trips from Zurich and went to a lot of these places in that way so really. What works best for you in terms of you find a great hotel deal for week certain area you can go there in still all these destinations from that point instead of having to do it in the loop that I'm gonNA lay up but to walk you through it in a manner that maybe makes sense mentally? I'll go from Zurich Eric Wizard interlocking.

"I'm so glad to be joined by. Emily are relational organizing director phoning in and from the road to help explain to us all about the new Bern APP. Hi Emily I am here. You are talking to me because you are a burn APP Aficionado. Am I right. Yes that's right so if somehow our people out there that don't know what the burn up is can you tell them. So the burn up is our campaign's organising AC. It is our secret weapon to win the primary and the the general and when all of our legislative fights on afterwards and what it allows us to do is to tell the campaign pain. Hey these are the people in my life who I'm going to take responsibility for organising for Mobile And after bring into our movement so that's so great because as as someone who is relatively new to politics when I hear the word organizing I think. Oh Gosh I it's kind of opaque thumbing that someone else does not just me but this at makes a lot more accessible accessible so one first and foremost where can people find. The APP burn is accessible on the apple APP store. Google play where or you get your apps and we also have a limited web version APP DOT BERNIE SANDERS DOT COM. Okay so I have already gone to. The APP store Oren downloaded the APP by searching be are in burn but I also know that we just came out with a new update. If I already have the apple iphone I phoned. Do I need to do anything or does it automatically update you should go to your APP store and update on an installed a new version of the appetite of the town of new cool features. We had like videos tab and friends tab so you can do follow up with all your friends. The apple tell you the best way is that you can be reaching out to your friends definitely reinstalled the APP check out the update. Okay so I know that one of the things I love about this APP particularly the new update is that you can forward videos that you love to your friends directly through the APP so you will get an update you can conceivably get an update update that there is new videos and stuff when you see that you can flag it and go ahead and forward it directly and not have to worry about. Oh does my friend use twitter. Is My mom on facebook you you can just Ford it through the APP. So that's my personal spark for me given that we have here the baron you can access your the burn through the APP but what is the main in core purpose. How should people be using at for organizing? Yeah so the primary function of burn is growing our our movement bringing more people into the political revolution. So when you download bring what you should do is create an account and log in under the volunteers tab and and think through your personal network. Who are your friends and family colleagues classmates who you can be talking with about Bernie and `and intern when you add them to your friends list in the APP to campaign will give you the resources that you need to have the most productive ineffective conversations stations with those friends so for example if your friend lives in a state where you need to be a registered Democrat in order to participate in the primary in both for Bruni? We will tell you that through the we will tell you. Hey please reach out to these three friends. You need to change their party affiliation in order to vote in this deadline to do that. Here's the link and then a text message to help you find but not necessarily to make sure that everyone all of our supporters. No win wear how to vote in owners primary because that is so sophisticated and I love that because for even people who are undecided knowing how important is to vote in just to get registered figuring out who is registered in and who's not is such a universally applicable goal. I put the names of all my family and friends in the new offhand discovered that my brother apparently isn't registered. So He's GonNa get talking to over the Christmas break over the holidays so I also see here that you can record your own Bernie story with story through the APP. What is the advantage manage of doing it through the APP and this way? Yeah so what. We know drew decades of research. But also just as I- organizers is. Is that sharing our personal stories. About how our lives analyze of the ones we love will change under Bernie Presidency. That is the most effective in a way of persuading voters to join US and a persuading people off. Maybe on the fence without Bernie is through sharing our personal stories so the burn APP allows you to record a one to two minute video about why you personally are supporting Bernie. What's at stake for you in this election? And then it makes it really easy to share that video with all of your friends among your friends watch the video. They have the option to fill out a survey beneath your video telling you telling the campaign if they're on board and what issues they care about so I got ask you. How much is this a competitive advantage for us do any other campaigns have anything like this burn is a first of its kind tool and we are? The only campaigned has a in APP that allows this is to do all sorts of different things such as reporting our personal story finding out if our friends are registered to vote a place to find all of our campaign video. Leo This is something that our team developed and definitely as a competitive advantage because we have such passionate days of supporters who you are engaging with the APP and using it to like I said growing movement so I WANNA follow up minutes implore everybody to download the APP. If you're listening into this podcast that already suggests some level of commitment or interest in the Bernie campaign so even if you're still thinking about who you're going to support download the APP because one of the most interesting functions that I find the most useful functions Suba to stay in a conversation with someone who might have a question about you know what is Bernie Sanders environmental policy. What is criminal justice policy? How does his housing in policy stand unique from the other candidates you can go and pull up policies with simple touch of a button here on this APP and have everything there is to know about? Bernie Sanders owners right there at your fingertips if I know anything about Bernie supporters that they care about policy more than anybody else I've ever spoken to. They know why they're voting for Sanders and having those policy. diesels your fingertips in your mind. What's driving a lot of the commitment to this campaign so for someone who's just downloading it? Can you give them a quick instruction on what what you think. The number one thing for for them to do in the APP should be when they when I download it so when you first download the APP go to the Volunteer Tag. You'll see it right in the bottom of the APP volunteer when Tier Create an account. So it will ask you for your email and to set a password. Daniel had access to are incredibly powerful organising portion of the APP where you can survey your friends. You can ask your friends directly to the APP mission mention. We never ask for the contact hacked information at your friends so when we talk about adding our friends to the we are not the campaign is not asking you for their phone number or email. You're not opting the men for campaign communications. What you're saying is hey? I'll take point for organizing these voters for the campaign and in turn we'll give you the the critical information that you need in order to do that. Such as when his early voting starting. When is the election? Do they need to change their party. Affiliation how how can we make sure that they have everything they need to actually turn out and vote so that is definitely step one and then I'll also note that you can find events near view under the events tab you can see all of the events that are happening in your area. We have thousands and thousands of events all over the country. This is amazing. Way To meet other Bernie supporters in railway and to be kind of part of VON team. I love that because people reach out to me all the time asking. Give me how they can get more involved. Emily thank you so much for taking the time I see your hailing from the road right now. Where are you yet? I'm in Reno. Nevada I. Editing are amazing. Field staff actually training them on how we can be empowering volunteers. Even more to engage gauge friends family colleagues classmates to join our movement because all the research shows that frank different outreach you know a friend reaching reaching out to the a friend is the most effective voter contact that we can do. It's the most effective way that we can be persuading voters turning out voters. There's so it's absolutely critical. That's in my mind what this is. What People Power Is People Power? We have it we have people and we can make career that runs in this election when engaged people in our life. What thank you so much for taking time? Thank you so much for doing the work out there. I'll see you when you're back at each skew.

"This is here the bird a podcast about the people ideas and politics. That are driving the Bernie Sanders Twenty twenty campaign movement to secure a dignified life for everyone living in this country. My name is Briana joy gray and I'm coming to you from campaign headquarters and Washington DC. This Week I spoke to four board members of environmental activist group. US Youth Climate Strike Co founded by Israel. Her daughter of representative tip Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. We preview this episode a couple of weeks ago. So if you listen regularly you already now. It's about to be wild. Yes yes the kids did come through with the hot pickle Asmar next. I chatted with the rebel teens to young men who were the communications occasions powerhouse behind progressive candidate. Mike Rebels Twenty twenty campaign and I- rounded up the interviews with the Roundtable Bernie Twenty twenty interns and conversation with Delaney Bandra gripped our outreach coordinator for HTC use a recent graduate of a historically Black College. Or so I asked Delaney and are to press interns turned who literally read everything about comes out about this race and a policy intern. Who knows the issues like the back of her hand? Whether and how their perception reception of Bernie's twenty twenty campaign changed once they started working. Here is the Bernie blackout really real. If this episode makes you feel a little long in the tooth don't worry. Some of my favorite progressives are in their seventies stick around until the end because we included when important to to`real for our unprecedented organizing the bird last week we released an updated version with even more incredible features and our relational organizing director. Emily Isaac walks us through how you can use the APP to organize your friends and family over the holidays and during the next six short weeks until Iowa the burn up has over a hundred thousand users already. But if it's not your phone you're missing out on one of the easiest ways to advance the progressive revolution. All right. Let's do this. I'm here with a CO founder. In many four numbers is that what you Eddie okay of. US Youth Climate Strike on organization. That's obviously about climate activism that you co founded earlier this year right so can we. You're out and introduce ourselves in. Tell me why you're in DC today. My Name's Esra. I'm the CO founder and partnerships director for UC climate strike. And I guess I'm here today in DC see to work with my fellow organizing you know create a plan moving forward for US climate strike. And we're all here on a retreat and I'm super excited. I'm Feelin Charlemagne. I'm the Executive Executive Director of youth. And Yeah we're here for our executive strategy retreat strategizing. How we're going to win bold climate policy and twenty twenty and Dylan Chaska the political director of S? And Yeah. We're here to build community within the team especially in order to work together more effectively and actually get stuff past and push them but talk director of climate strike and mutates also create strategy how to dismantle the fossil fuel industry. So I hear a little would've voice loss over here is because we've been having a really active in funding so I just met some of the rest of the crew outside aside and you guys have been teaching me a lot not just about climate activism but about how the youth communicate and in fact we just did my first tech take time time. You're hearing the studios recording your Endorsement Videos you told me that you thought it would be a good idea for brady to do. Asmar out of control okay. So for the people who don't know what is a SAS over the term. Okay the sensory Marie Meridian. Are I think that for I essentially like. As Amar is like this like sensory type sound where people like us. Mike and they make sounds either whisper into a mike or eat things in tap things And it gives people sensations if they can if they can feel smart not everybody can but okay so why why is it a thing like why Bernie doing am are. Why does that make you guys so excited? I think it's like this is like funny. I feel like it would get the youth. Vote Labral Habra. This morning I think we just want no the campaign to do more things that are I guess a little a bit more on the fun side and appealing the Jen's I think that includes things like a smart things like take talk and I think we all think it's hilarious. If you'd like Sir whispering into a Mike you're like you know eat a chicken it took dot that's like gray but like Bernie action as some are like they kind of crazy engy like. Maybe we should just try that. I hear that I myself. That's makes sense though. What did I say? Got This ridiculous this does it. It's not a good actually. No I take like me I don't know we'll Kamar. We did we hear yourself. It's weird a I'm actually. I'm actually really uncomfortable with this. Is actually kind of like it's just like it's so like amplified. I don't end up sitting. Where is the path forward? We're to the revolution. Can you guys tell us. Maybe what is because it is true that despite not having done a tick tock yet Bernie is trending. Big Time with your age-group so why do you think that is the youth vote ultimately like despite not doing these things that are like particularly engaging audience ultimately a lot all of us really cognizant about his policies so you know policies that impact is because a lot of us are working class lower middle class as like free healthcare free college things. That impact is right right in this very moment is the reason why we're so particularly attracted to especially with the fact that his track record as they're like even even past generations you know his history has always been there since day one threat like when he got arrested. That one photo. You don't know what I'm talking about video. Even his policy ultimately just shines it's through. I think it's really really does work out in the end because we we all are aware of how his presidency will impact us if you went. Wish wish hopefully does so. I've heard ready actually an article saying that at first you felt like the climate movement wasn't for you the way it was described the way it was pitched hitched as it seemed like a wider movement. I'm more affluent movement where the focusing to be on you know saving nature and trees and preserving the ability to go on hiking trips and things like bat. What changed for you? What enabled you to see yourself more in the movement? I feel like it's still like that like a very large extent and I think it's like like yes you can have people. We'll look look like us right here in these spaces but that doesn't mean that the spaces change you still have the really wide big NGOs that have the resources but aren't really doing the work that needs to we done. I think it hasn't changed much but it's more a conversation. I think seeing things like the new deal on seeing like Bernie's climate policy like actually shows that like people are talking about canoes color in front line communities. But we need to see that inaction immune to see people taking control of these very affluent enlarge big NGOs and also creating space ace for people that are literally dying because of this people are surprised that this group would be pro Bernie not just because of your age but also because of the racial demographics right there was there. Is this perception. I think that Rahm People WanNa vote for Brown people kind of exclusively and that I think is not the case might pay when I talked to younger people. You know you the Politics Front and center when you were describing your you know why you support you. Know what do you think is going on with older generations the way they perceive of kind of identity so I honestly think that becoming more aware of the identity politics has and so. We're seeing how people people who capitalize on this have policies that don't really reflect the needs an issue of these communities and so more and more people are realizing that identity did you politics just ultimately matters about. What are you gonNA do for us? You know not by the color of our skin not by the identities in which we identify with you know not by the labels we choose or whatnot. It's ultimately by what we're advocating for and how we done in the past or not. When I was watching a lot of.
Episode 11 Laying Out For CRISPR
"Well and Michael Are you a person who always on sunscreen when you go outside no no no I got I don't get it I you know this summer I got out within in a while now that are a little older I feel like between becoming an adult did you know working nine to five with the sun's out of them young kids but now nowadays if you know we got it we went to the pool we do all that stuff I- I tand pretty well so I'm not going to be outside for twenty minutes I don't worry about it I did get one sunburn this year so maybe I should have done it more yeah well people used to go to the beach and just cover themselves in baby oil so they could be getting good hand but I feel like those days are mostly gone more likely at the beach juicy people ladies in huge hats China protect themselves from the sun from all the damage that it causes but I don't know think about what would you do Oh my goal if you if you were had some sort of issue where every time you went in the sun you would take the risks up developing cancer I mean isn't that what we're replying with sun damage this bill basically that a any any real sun exposure gives you cancer I mean that's that's you got burned that summer did you kanter no but did I raise my chance of getting cancer you're talking about like I would have burst into like cancerous immediately it's GonNa be rain down on me it's GonNa be the big chip on my in my arm is going to pop up cancer all of a sudden because I walked out in the sun for five minutes yeah yeah I mean you you go outside you get a Thun Bern and within a few days you develop them and malignant melanoma developing on your skin the I I would start sleeping during the day working tonight yeah that's exactly what this man in California has done. He suffers from an extremely rare disease he's where he has extreme sunlight sensitivity so that anytime he goes out in the sun he he developed mold on his body that can eventually become cancerous and so yes he definitely has had a job where he works at night and he is now petitioning in offering his ready to be Chris Byrd the name of science oh he's he's doing what now exactly so he's offering himself up to be Chris Byrd by way we so this isn't this isn't a seventy he's not going out in Suntan in you know baby oil and going out in the sun and getting crisper that that's not what you're talking about no no he is an in he he experiences malignant melanoma basically every time he goes out in the nine anytime he had some exposure so what client what classifies it as malignant. I'm not I mean I have all sorts of freckly type moles that you certainly not malignant but what makes them what makes them malignant versus just hey this is something that happens to my skin in the sun right so if you're the malignant melanoma then the problem is that it can eventually miss metastasized and spread to the rest of the body and so every day he basically has to look at his entire body and check himself l. for mold that could develop because of any sort of UV exposure and as soon as he notices them to go and get them removed now okay so you've been dealing with it since he was nine years old and he started developing all of these moles off his body and when he came of age of nineteen he eventually got graveyard shift as a waiter denny's just so that you wouldn't have to expose themselves to any any sunlight is this has he got cancer no he hasn't I don't think so but he feels like at some point at he's getting older I think I think he's thirty now in key fields like it's getting worse and worse than he feels like eventually he's going to miss something and that he will get cancer yes so he has in genetic disease it's something that he inherited it inherited it is not really a name for this disease it's so rare and there's no no cure for eight besides just avoiding the sun at all costs and so so he has started petitioning scientists to ask him to see if they they can Christopher his buddy if they can care it retroactively remove via yes but that's not really how it works right I mean he is however millions of cells with carry this thing so how can you give them all that now that's a really great question because that is not how Chris Bury were crisper is an amazing technology it can be a US to alter it can be used to take out small amounts of of DNA sequences to basically turn off a gene which we talked a few weeks ago about the scientists in Russia who is trying to crisper the the babies who are likely to be born death right and so in McKay The scientist is actually just deleting the this sequence that has the mutation so that the gene that causes that the problem is is basically turned off which by the way I update you days ago that that scientists is going ahead with the plan he's actually started editing the genes in human eggs yeah sure let's let's be exciting yeah so he doesn't necessarily have approval to you start to to start the experiment to actually implant thanks but he's going ahead and editing them in just in case he does get all right and this is what was basically the same thing as he needs to have a willing he's going to have to have a willing participant though in this case I guess it'll be a parental we'll participant the volunteer child and here's this guy this guy wants to be like hey let's let's push this forward throughout all this approval just hey come on come do what you want to me I'll be getting big well the guy in Russia here already has parental approval you're talking about the the guy that wants that his moles that Christopher guy that that's what worries about getting Chris Byrd he wants to be Chris Byrd because he's worried about getting Chris Byrd in exactly to get two crispy in the sun so he's going to get Chris Byrd well yes so the guy in California he read in two thousand seventeen about the bio hacker designer he failed in genetic engineering kit and is that the

"That's been started of people saying i'm going to run on on small dollar donations that traces back to bernie showing that could be done so yes. There have been instances that you're citing. I'm not gonna dispute because i oh. I didn't do that particular research okay but i i in general what i see as i really i. I didn't know he started that so that's cool yeah right so so one of the things that we need to have is a system that functions on on small individual groups of people getting together caring about issues getting involved in the system working for or candidate etcetera etcetera that needs to happen and i know it's a long road to get there but we're not gonna get there how we're not going to get there is continuing attenuating to not to play this ballgame and not constantly call it out. Call it out like this broken in right and that's one of the things i i don't. I'm not in love with bernie sanders right but this tendency the consistency distancing to me. I'm like yeah. It's just like to me. It's like sarah sanders right. You cannot get her off her point right yeah. Yeah well always come. You could be talking about how great fried eggs are for breakfast and she'll come back to. We need money for the wall and the wall be built right so bernie is kind of that way except on issues. I care about right which is getting money out of politics having a sane healthcare chair system that doesn't bankrupt people <hes> regulating wall street so they don't crash our economy like i don't know about you guys for me the recession recession. I lost my job. I had to move i had to i had to personally because i didn't have a job for a long time. I had to go and get food food stamps to me. Those are like really really personal issues and yeah. I've rebuilt my life but when i look around the economy economy if we're not fighting for these changes it's gonna happen again and and it's terrible for regular people well. I can say we didn't lose our jobs because we've never had job. We're always unemployed. Okay well. I appreciate what you said about consistency because i do know oh with my completely surface level love for obama i do put a lot of stock in just instincts and what you've connection and what you feel energy wise when you look in here but i definitely know he did let me down learning all about mitch mcconnell and what mitch mcconnell was up to for those eight years it really let me down that he never just said anything at the end of the day do what you're gonna do but just say mitch mcconnell mitch mcconnell mitch mcconnell nancy pelosi every time the cameras on you say we do it but mitch mcconnell mitch mcconnell mitch mcconnell and i felt like with the thing with obama was that yeah i mean unfortunately like the he wasn't as consistent as i wish that he was and i'm sure that but knowing that bernie's inconsistent and the and the the the message has never changed must feel good. I mean we don't know because we were just weren't listening. The you know what's so funny is is what you're saying is also my complaint about bernie sanders so the funny thing is i want democrats to fight. Okay i wanted is subverted obama so much when he was first running for office 'cause i thought he was going to get in there and fight and take it to them right and the stuff that mitch mcconnell did to obama obama was super personal k. that stuff with merrick garland arlene and all of that that was really personal that was saying that whole thing where he was like. We're our sole purpose. Our main priority is to make sure obama's a one term the president at all that was really personal and obama should have come out swinging should have fought and that's the same thing that frustrates me with all these other a democrat leaders bernie included k to to my mind bernie's probably the best one. He fights the most but i want them to take it to the republican and be every day hounding them. 'cause that's what republicans do to everybody else and that's what they do on their news channel..

He came for better on the first debates and he was coming for joe biden on these and just anyone and we're just not feeling billingham. No we don't wanna see someone be smug and cocky.

It's like just do you even go here again. I have been fucking. I was doing this before you were born bro. Don't fuck talk to me like that like hooghly in castro also said to joe biden some people.

I think with the thing with the voting records and i know he's we've all done shit that we shouldn't have done. We've all made said things we regret. We've all thought we thought one way and been like whoops. I was wrong about that doesn't happen to all of us and we all need to be able to say that yet with these voting records. I feel like it gets really really dicey because there's always always hidden things in these bills. They're not what they say. They are you vote. Yes vote no but you're voting no on something else and bernie sanders is the king of this. Yes he's going to vote. No on something that it looks amazing on paper or even this is what the the you know the squad did they voted no on giving money to the emergency at the border because it didn't have the <hes> guardrails that they wanted but on paper what that says is they voted no and when you go back to somebody who voted no in the seventies and you're like you voted no on this. You're just being very very general and by the way he probably didn't fucking remember. The guy seventy six goddamn years ago. He booker just made himself not just was it was not a good look like coming for the yo you want to get into records and you. It's like he the way he came for him. Him and there was a thing between cory booker and joe biden. Joe biden wasn't coming for anyone knows only reacting and only in in response to when people were coming for him and cory booker wanted to get on him about this crime criminal reform act and it put too many people in jail and it was this whole the thing and joe biden's trying to defend but there was this other and then corey booker just was like so rude to him it felt wrote it felt personal and it felt fucking looking stupid when he said in my where i'm from your say your drinking the kool aid you're all been the coolest is you don't have the flavor i'm like where are you from the past because no one saying saying that now and i mean cory booker's funny he by the way is he's six two and he's fifty oh so and he can be funny and charming and i don't think it's the best use of his talents rate to cover of joe biden and that's what i would tell them if i was his adviser and i'm gonna go ahead and tell them now so somebody can pass that onto him he he's not going to himself. He needs to come and be charming. I just try to picture what obama oh i thought was really charming and admittedly i never saw one of his rates but <hes> 'cause i would could not be bothered. <hes> i wouldn't even have known when it was on. Oh miss my old life but maybe he was gene in debates with hillary clinton. I don't know but i try to think of people who i think are really charming. I think joe biden's really charming. I think cory booker. He's handsome and he's he's. He's smart and he's funny. I think if he sticks in east dickson that pocket he'll do so much better than trying to be county. It's just not a good look for him. Some people can become tea and win and like even kamala harris can be yes. She's winning when she's coming for you rang. She knows how to come for you and still be like super hot yeah right yeah and i don't think cory booker knows how it's not for me. I think that there's something about like they get like bratty.
